Detailed Account of the Abduction of
The London (Qaoada) Free Press, of
the 17th instant, brings ua+the fall de?
tails of the trial of I. B. Cornwall for
the forcible abduction of Dr. Bratton, of
Sooth Carolina. We present in con?
densed form the most Interesting por?
tions of the ovid on co:
Dr. James Rufus Bratton deposed that
on the afternoon in question, he WBB
walking ont on Waterloo street. He
saw a cab standing in tho distance, and
three men; two of them were standing
in the road, and tbe other was seated ou
the box; as he walked on, the, two men
separated, one going, the other coming,
towards him; tbe latter he recognizes ac
Cornwall. Wben within about six feel
of him, Cornwall sprang towards him,
and seized him in a rude and violent
manner by the arm and shoulder, telling
bim he arrested him under a warrant
He (Bratton) demanded to bear the war
rant read, and desired his assailant tc
show cause why he should be arrested
Cornwall returned that he would do tba
soon enough. Witness resisted, and stil
demanded to know the reason of hi
arrest, but received no satisfactiou be
youd being told that he would hud ou
soon enough. A struggle ensued, in th
course of which both of them foll to th
ground. Cornwall knelt ou his bod
and arms, aud proceedod to put manu
clea on him. Ho called the cabmau t
help him. After some further strup
gliug, the cabman came to Cornwall
assistance and held witness' arm:
The hand-cuffs were then placed upo
his (Bratton'e) wrists, and he was led bi
tween the two men, Cornwall on tb
right aud the cabmau on the left, to th
cub, into whioh he was pushed. Cori
wall gave orders to drive to tho statio
by the back streets. Witness asku
that they should drive urouud by h
boarding-house to get some of h
clothes, but this was refused. While o
the way, witness repeatedly proteste
against tho degradation of the iroi
upou his persou, and demanded to kuo
the authority upou which Cornwall pr
ceeded. Cornwall told him to kee
quiet, and not create auy outcry, lest 1
should expose himself with the han
curt's upon him. Witness returned th
he did not fear to be taken before ni
magistrate or commissioner for cxamiu
tion, but objected to the humiliation

hear the warrant read, still protestii
against the arrest, and telling Cornw
that it waa not law, but force and vi
lenee, Cornwall read a warrant in i
hearing. He (witness) then said t
warrant did not embrace bia name; cl
uot call for him, and afforded no luf
pretence whatever for his arrest. Coi

warrant signed by Mr. Caron at Wind?
sor. The name on the warrant was Jos.
Wm. Avery. I told him I could give
every satisfaction that I was not the
person, and he said it was not for him to
discriminate. He also replied thut at
the proper time there wonld be a person
able to testify as tu witness' identity. I
never saw Avery either in London or
Canada. When we wore riding down
Richmond street, Cornwall Baid to wit?
ness: "I know you are Avery, beoause I
saw you walking down the street with
your daughter the other day." The
person who was to identify me in Wind?
sor as Avery knows both him and I per?
fectly well. The cabman took hold of
me by the arms and held me until Corn?
wall put the Laud-cuffs on, but did not
after I got up. I made no effort to get
out at Windsor, from the fact that I did
not know I was in Windsor.
Mr. Bratr?m then addressed the court
in a long speech on behalf of his client,
contending'that the case was not one of
kidnapping; -that Britton went over to
Detroit of bis own accord, and that
Cornwall relinquished possession and all
care of him after the manacles were re?
moved. He spoke for an hour.

Important Correspondence Between
Carl Schurz ?nd Dlr. Greeley.
?x^Louis, Joly 22.-The following
correspondence was read by Senator
Schurz ia his speeoh to-night:
"ST. LOUIS, June 2G, 1872.
"DHAH Sut: In your letter of accept?
ance you promise a thorough reform of
the omi service in general terms. The
question how the problem of civil service
reform presents itself to your mind, is
one of great interest, aud I would sug?
gest, if it be consistent with yonr views
of propriety, that you give me such
explanations as will pnt your intentions,
in t bis respect, iu a clear light. Yours,

Tho following is Mr. Greeley's reply:
"NEW YORK. July 5, 1872.
"MY DEAR SIR: Yours of the 26th
ultimo only reached me three days ago.
I respond as promptly as. I may. The
problem of -JIvii service reform is ren?
dered difficult by an alliance between the
executive and legislative branches of
our Federal franchise government.
Those members of Congress who favor
the Administration habitually claim, and
are accorded, a virtual monopoly of tho

will; often in opposition to their own
convictions. Unless all history is un?
meaning, this confusion of executive
and legislative responsibilities and fane
tions could not fuil to distemper and cor?
rupt the body politic. I hold tho eligi?
bility of our President to re-election thc
main source of this corruption. A Pre?
sident should be above the hope ol
future favor, or the fear of alienating
powerful and ambitious partisans. He
should be the official chief not of a party,
but of the republic. He should dreac
nothing but the accusing voice of histor]
and the inexorable judgment of God
He should fully realize and never forge'
that Congress, in its own sphere, is para
mount, and in no wise amenable to hit
supervision, and that the heartiest gooc
will to his administration is perfectly
compatible with the most pointed dis
sent from his inculcations in the ver
gravest questions in finance or politica
economy. It is the first step that costa
Let it bo settled that a President is no
to be re-elected while in office, add civi
service reform is no longer difficult. H

and wUeBt of bis eminent fellow-oitizenf
regardless alike of the shrieks of localit

Ile will have no interest to conciliate, n
chief of a powerful clan to attach to hi

revenue, instead of dexterous manipuli
tors of primary meetings and skillft
traffickers in delegates to nominutin

civil service of 'tbe oountry from n pari

No longer an aspirant to place, the Pr

serve the approbation of the entire pei
pie, but especially of the eminently wi:
and good. As to the machinery <

the adulterous commerce in legielatic

conraged, and this, I am confident,
not the fault of the gentlemen who ha'
tried to serve the public as comm

failed, the canses of their ill sncoc
must be extensive. Had they been t
