New Yobb, Jan. 4. There were great
srowdt around the court 'of oyer and ter
miner to-day, where Mr. Tremsln Is mak
ing the concluding portion of his argument
for tbe defease ol Stoke. Hs aalmadver-
slons up oa tbe character of Flak were
quite bitter. 11a clal mea that tha tbooti n g
of Pisk by Stokes), under even an impres
sion ofdangor, if that impression was sin
cere, was a justifiable defense. Alter an
exhauitivo argument in wblcli ttio
character of Pisk and tbe wit
nesses for the prosorutlon were
severely excoriated, Mr. Trtmaln closed
bis efforts Tor the prisoner. There was
great applause from the audienco, upon
the conclusion of his address, which was
suppressed by the judg. After recess
Mr. Beach commenced his reply for tbe
prosecution, and for several hours he re
viewed at length tbe testimony of the
principal witnesses, and ca'led upon the
jury to judge whether fron the story of
Stokes himself, the caso wis not one of
murdor. Stokes' early caieir and the
circumstances of the murder were com
mented upon with severity. Tie question
of premeditation Beach submittal to the
jury on tbe broad principle whither at
the moment of firing tbo fatal siot, the
prisoner Intended to kill.
When Mr. Beach lad concluded, the
judge at onco proceeded to deliver bis

Several ice islands formed in front of the
city. The ice backed up from Wetzel's

field only extended some two hundred
yards from the shore into tbe river, and
has crowded coal and wharfboats slightly

boats, where steamers lie in harbor com
paratively free of ice. Near the shore t
ttalionary belt of ice lines the Jefiersot
front from opposite First street to the fer
ry landing. One ice island a fourth way
across the river from the foot of Third
treet, is two hundred yards long, thirty
or forty wide, and six to ten fast bieh. A
smaller is and is further out, near tbe mid
dle of tbe river. Theie have a narrow
passage for floating ice, and tomo fears are
expressed of a gorge at this point. Others
say tbe current is too ttrong. Tbe islands
are formed by deep floating Ice catching
on rocks or bidden obstructions. No fur

St. Louis, Jan. 4. A large field of ice
extending from shore to shore, broke off
the gorge above tbe bridge this morning
and floated down. It tilled bp most of the
peu space below tbe bridge, but did no
damage. Another break is expected to
night, but up 11 o'clock no further move
ment has taken place. The riir rose
about a foot to-day, and tbe g-rge cannot
last much longer. Stealers along the
levee have mad preparations for tbe
break-up by raising steam, and extra
moorldg have been attached to wharfboats,
barges, tc. A snow storm set in about 9
o'clock and continues at this hour.

when arrested did nut necessarily involve
guilt. If the jury believed tbe prisoner
fired from premeditated design to kill
without danger, they should find a ver
die, of murder in tbe first degree,
unlist thev found a verdict of
manslaughter In tbe third degree, and
on tie latter poiut they were to consider
if thire was a conflict, and whether the
charaiter of Fisk was such as trom men

gerous nan or net, ware tbey to consieer
bis character. It was tbe duty of the pris
oner to eitisfy them tbat the killing was
not murder. His honor then explained
the kind oi doubt to which tbe prisoner
would bo entitled, and In conclusion, said
it would boa great misfortune if tbnjury
now disagreed, urainarnyiweiri nonet ,
inttlligent men do after consideration
mate up their minds to agree. When
pastion, prejudice, obstinancy, or other
notives are present tbey do not. He
nadt these remarks because tbo jury cn
the former trial disagreed. The prisoner
was either guilty, and should be convicted,
cr innocent, and acquitted. His honor
dkl not anticipate disagreement in this
case. The jury then retired.
;Wter being out tome few hours, .entered
aDout 11:12 o'clock, and rendered a ver
dict against tbe prisoner of murder in tbo
lrst degree. There was a marked
tensation in court at the announcment of
the verdict, tbe prisoner turned asby pale,
and bis sister wept aloud. Assistant Dis
trict Attorney Fellows moved that the
sentence ol tbe law be pronounced, but at
tbe suggestion of Tremain, the judge de
