THE \VIBZ TUIAL-PITIABLE SCENE.
The Military Commission assornl-Jed
at 10 a. m., yesterday, and con?
tinued the trial of the late rebel
Captain Henry Wirz. All of the mem?
bers of the Court.wore present, also
tliQ Judge Advocate, and Mr. Schade
for the prisoner. The reading of
Thursday's proceedings Was conclud?
ed at 11.45 a. m., when the prisoner
was brought into court, and resumed
his place on the sofa. A greater num
of ladies were present than ou any
Judge Advocate Colonel N. P.
Chipman informed tho Court that he
had received a letter from Mr. "Baker, .
one of the accused's counsel, who
stated that he would not be present
to-clny, and that Mr. Schade, ids
associate counsel, would conduct the
trial on the part of the accused.
After the usual testimony as to tho i
horrible treatment of the prisoners
had been gone throngh with, and |
Sergeant John W. Cray.' of the j
Seventh Indiana Cav.dry, had testi- ]
lied, the prisoner, Wir/., raised him- \
self on his hand and knees on the !
sofa, and, addressing the witness,
said: "You did not seo me there!"
Tito Judge Advocate here asked the |
accused to rise to his feet, so that the ;
witness cotild see him. This thepri-i
soner, with apparent agony, succeed- I
cd in doing, when lie again addressed !
the witness, saying: '.'You never saw
me there. Look good!' Make sure.*'
The witness, hesitatingly, .'aid he bc- j
lieved he was tho man. The prisoner
here beeam? perfectly frantic, and ap- j
peared to be in agony from'head to I
foot, when tiie counsel mid the guard >
induced him to lie seated, the counsel. 1
Mr. Scha'de, telling him it would be j
all right. Tlie acense'd (drawing 1
quick and heavy breaths) replied ?
hysterically: "I know it will, but, O, ?
Clod!" He was here handed his bottle
of stimulants, cud given a drink of i
water, and the prison .doctor, Mr.
Ford, sent for. The accused was taken
into au adjoining room.

FEIVLOW-CITIZINS: Alter much hesitation,
? have consented to bc put in nomhiation
for vi nu- Representative hi thc Congress <>f
thc United States. I publish this card, be?
cause the District is so large and the time
b'efore th? election so short ;hat I could
not. ir' 1 desired, canvass the Distiictf. 1!' a
canvas** were possible, however, I do not
think it becoming or desirable*. In my
judgment, t ! i i is no time for a scramble for
office. It seems to mc that no one proper?
ly impressed with thc solemnity of the
crisis, and thc delicacy and importance of
the duties to be discharged, could seek thc
position merely for tho gratification of per?
sonal ambition. For myself, I declare that
I have no wish but to serve the State.
In 17.SS, South Carolina, through a con?
vention of her people, became one of thc
United States. She remained amcrnbero!
! the Union until December, IS!}.'), when,
I through another i onvention of her people.
: she repealed tho Ordinance of 17.SS, seccd
' ed from the United States, and with vcr
I tai:? other sister Statescntered intoanothei
government known aa the Confederate
Government. We believed that we had tin
1 right to secede and. tbat.'onr security re?
quired its exercise in co-operation with otu
Southern sisters. South Carolin;., in 1M52
proclaimed by solemn ordinance the righi
of secession. It had long been thc scttlei
opinion of thc State that she was sovcreigi
and entitled to all the rights of sovereignty
j she asserted self-government in ord?r ti
1 .--..cure lier institutions and principles fron
i great evils, believed to bc imminent. Sc
i cession was in thc nature of a proceedin.?
I quia liiiui. lt was conceived in the spirit <>
j self-preservation-not to injure others bu
to save ourselves. It cannot bc necessary
to sav that J am otic of thos? who believi
that it was an honest effort for honorabli
purposes. The United States Governnicn
denied thc right of secession and wager
war upon the Confederate States, whiel
I stood upon thc defensiv.'. A terrible WK:
i of invasion and di solation followed, au<
finally the Confederate States vere over
whelmed by force of numbers and dissolved
At the end of the war the State ol' Souti
Carolina found thc Confederacy broken np
her citizens who survived thc terribh
ordeal exhausted ami impoverished, hoi
instit niions destroyed, and the whole cont:
try occupied by thc military forces of tin
United states." Under these painful cir
enmstances, the President of the Unitci
States invited the States lately composing
the Confederacy to re-organize their gov
ernments and restore then: connection witl
the Constitution and Government of Un
United States, upon certain conditions-, th<
principal of which was an acquiesence i:
tho abolition of slavery, which had beei
accomplished by the i?ilitaiv authorities
Thc State, wisely in my judgment,respond
ed favorably to tho invitation. It is trm
that the mere issue of battle does not prov?
right any more than did the old "wager o
battle;" but it -Iocs prove power which can
not l?e disregarded. A Provisional ('.over
nor was appointed, who called another con
vention Of the people, which has latch
repealed tho Ordinance of S. cession, ant
by an article in the St-ile Constitution
recognized the abolition of slavery and pro
hibited its re-< stablisluncnt. By repeal
ing that of Secesi?n, the Ordinance o
1788, through which South Carolina be?
came' a member of tho Union, waa ijm
facto revived, and we are thia day in tin
Union precisely as we became in 178M, and
remained up io 1860.
Wc are now in a very anomalous position.
Relying upon the good faith and patriotic
intentions of the President of thc United
States, we have done all that was required
of us to restore our old relaftons to the
Constitution and the Union; but stilt we
have not been received into fellowship at
Washington. That important part of thc
plan of reconstruction remains yet to bc
accomplished. It is understood that a
party will oppose thc President's plait of
reorganizing tin- States and giving to tlumi
equality of rights, and will insists upon still
farther despoiling and crushing the States
of the South as conquered provinces. This
radical fanatical party opposed our leaving
the Union, and nowtliey oppose our return?
ing to it. When we were in the Union, they
abused us on account of slavery. They
waged war upon us because we triad to
separate from them, and now that we pro?
pose to return without slavery, they ?til!
object. In this emergency, tin-state need*
the Resistance of all h-.r true men. Much
remains to bc dene, and not thc lca>t is tu
secure a prudent, faithful and patriotic
representation in Congress, to assist and
forward the work of restoration which the
State has e immcnced. 1 arrogate not tu
myself litiiess to form part of such a rep?
resentation, bat friends have urged me for?
ward, cud if yon are willing to try mo, I
will give my best efforts.
In some respects, we are at the beginning
of our policy, as if wo were a new State
abie.it to assume new relations with our
sister States; but we must never allow our?
selves to forget that in other respects we
are an old State-a State having antece?
dents a name to maintain and a history to
preserve. Whatever may betide us in thc
uncertain future, the past, at least, is se?
cure. South Carolina has never swerved
from the path of honor, as she conceived it.
Wo have a record of which none need be
ashamed; and when any apostate son
bois disclaims or disparages it, -may she
eas; him ont as unworthy of her. Tin
devotion of every true sou ol'the State
adheres in adversity as well as in pros?
perity -is lov-t! through evil as well as
through good report; and in thc midst of
thc greatest misfortunes^"sticketh closer
thay a bi-otlu-r."'
A.tur the delegations from the Southern
States ?hall have been received into Con?
gress, many do!ieat?*and hupoitant duties
will devolve upon them, especially in refer?
ence to the freedmen of tba South, and the
control which Congress, or a party in Con?
gress, may desi:-* >tir t.i ri'Iso over
them. It may not be improper, in this
connection, to say that, whilst I have ap?
proved the course of the State in seeking
to restore her obi relations with the Govern?
ment of thc United States, it has been upon
the faith and expectation that the State, as
soon ai reconstructed, is to lun e entire
<- )e.h-ol of the whole subject o? her domes?
tic affairs. The State, and the State alone,
must bo left to decide to whim she will
give the right of suffrage or omer political
rights. A new code n&ir mus? b? enacted
to ] rotect and govern the popdation lately
made frc-,'-to prevent idleness, vagrancy.

? enough t.> foresee whether we ran succeed,
but i solemnly believe it will !>? impossible
to live in tho country at all unies the State

rests and true policy t > su:;:".ii thc Presi
dent and thc democratic pa'ty in their
efforts to restore tho states r thru' posi?
tion of ?equality and to giro $unu conni

With these views, if the voters of the
District think that I can serve them or the
Stat-.- in this critical emergencj, 1 will do
my best for them; but 1 have JO high a
sense of my own incompetency iud of thc
.diHiculties and responsibilities i the posi?
