tho oloctlon in January, 1871, was eflccted
by bribery In the intoreil of Caldwell,
ptlrcbaio money having been ptJd"''by
Caldwoll himself. Ilaviny arrived at this
conclusion of fact', It scorned to bo essen

of tho senate, or the stato of thn publln
feollnfc ol tho country, but for
the preservation of thn Institu
tlons on which wo llvn, that
the stato should, In soma way(

law and usages. Running through alt
English decisions until nor, a bribed vote
Is n.r vote, and If It bo found that bribed
votes (flvctcd an election, they mint be
catt out nnd tho election declared void
When charges were madu that a icnatorlal
election was procured by bribery it was
the bouuden duty of tho tcnalo, under a
constitutional clause, that mado thescnato
juJgo of the eloctlon nnd quallQcatlonii
to inquirointo tho facts
Bomo time wis spent In exchanging
flows ns to fixing tho ordor In which tho
pending proposition shall bo voted on, but
no nrrangoment was made. No senator
riling to contlnuo the debate, tho closing
speech devolved on Morton, who said ho
was not ready to do so to-day, and moved
that the ienato go Into executlvo session,
which whs agreed to.

Hopelessness ot any turtuer resistance, nna

tho act by which Caldwoll hold his teat.
It nppenrod n majority of tho committed

to po proscnt tho question involving tho
validity of the oloctlon.
(Sonator Morton interrupted Kerry'
romnrlfB, as to resolutions ulready pending
troni ditl'ernt sonators on tho subject, and
said that he, iia chairman of thocommittoo
took tho ground that tho tennto ha.i choico
of romody, and favored expulsion, but tho
majority of tho commlttco thought proper
to present a resolution declaring tin) seat
vacant ruther than for oxpulsion.)
Senator Kerry rosumlng, said ho would

merits of tho question involved, but

New York, March 22. A statement is
published tu'diy, hasod on information de
rived from n Tombs otllclnl, that Fostor
took poison tho night before tbo execution.
About & o'clock yesterday morning tho
matron of tho Tombs found, Foster sick
and In explanation ho thon admitted ho
had taken poison. Tho man's symptoms,
in every way, confirmed this suspicion,
and on this account tho sheriff hastened
tho execution, and while many believed
tho duration of the religious exorcises
woro telling on Foster's nerves, it was, In
reality, weakness caused by poison that
was acting on him. Tho Tombs physician
says Foster would havo died if tho execu
tion had been dolajed till 10 o'clock.
Foster was buried this morning at
Greenwood. Hov. Drs. Walkor and Tyng
officiated. Doth declared thero was no
truth in tho stntoment as to his attompt at
suiciding. That tho fact as to his con
dition demands tho refutation of tho report.

tho subject resisted tho more violent tho
spams became. Cartwright thought tho
Jerks a gonuino visitution from God to
convert sinnors and conflrm tho.rightoous;
but a manifestation that immediately fol
lowed tho "Jorki" in 18S9, to-wlt "running
find jumping' oxerciso (which I tako it
was modern shouting), and going into
trancos, ho considerod a misorablo delusion
and preached against it as such ; though
from his own account it was ns gonuino
and unavoidable as tho 'jerks." Ho says
persons would claim to go into a trance,
ttnd remain cold and insensible for hours
and days, and, in sonio Instances, ovor n
week, taking no food or stimulant diirini;
the entire timo. Such persons, on
tholr return to consciousness would
declare that they had seen hell and hoavon
and hud talked with God and tho angels,'
Such has been tho preciso character ol tho

HOW JUSTICE IS BURLESQUED.
From the Now York Star.
It ia high timo that somothing wm done
to add to tho dignity, both of bonch and
bar, in this stato. To a foreigner It must
seom infinitely absurd to seo a man occu
pying the Judicial scat wearing a bob-tail
coat, many-colored trousers, a gorgoous
wals'coat; and counsel appoaring urrayed
in extravagant neckties, crimson volvot
vest, and waxed moustaches, and, instead
of the grand solemnity of old, and tho im
posing staieiincss oi a court juiuco, a our:
composed of lcual buffoons, and
hailequlns. Rut asldo from tho appear
and, the Jests or would-bo witticisms,
that sometimes pass between the court and
counsel are almost undignified. Ai, for ex
ample only two dayi ago, in one of courts,
a youth of tome elgtteen jears was placed
on trial for a criminal oflense, and having
pleaded guilty, hit counsel togged that
mercy might U shown by tha court a it
was the prisoner's first offense, and that be
bo discharged. Then that dlgniflod ad
ministrator of tho law replied, in
a mincing tone: "Oh, yes, brother,
I think I will dischargo him, a
ho is such a nice boy." Then turning to
tho priionor he nskod: "If I discharge
you will you over do it again 7" Trie
answer wa, "No, sir" "Then, ' said his
honor, "I think I will discharge you; but
first I will glvoyou n vacation of two
vo-ira nnd n half In tho country, at Sing
Sing, and ir you had not pleaded guilty I
would hnvo sent you up for flvo." It is
high timo that a stop ba put to such coarso
nnd ill-limed humor from tho mouth of a
Judgo, and especially undor such circum
stances. Tho most dignified coutts In tho world
nro thoii of Great Ilrltaln, and as tho de
cision of tho judges in that countrv aro
louowod in our conns, let uoncn nnd bar
copy tho demeanor. It is dono in tho su
premo court of tho United States; and
why not in nil courts'' Let our mombora
of tho lozul profession irivo up theso vul
gnrities of manner which relied discredit
on tho la, whoso honor it Is their duty
to uphold, nnd sink it in tho eyes of every
ono far beneath that subltmo status that
Justlco should reach.

Wo heard a students' chorus.

The burden of their singing.

Wo vowed that while the Ncckar's flow

Ran undisturbed these towers below,
Cur troth should rest unbroken.
Again hcucath theso walls I stand,
And hero my footstepi linger,
Wlserc once 1 pressed with loving hana
This token ou your linger.
But now the well-loved viow 1 see
Its old enchantment misses ;
Tho evening breeze nlghs back to me
The i-hadows of our kisses.
L'ntlred still the Ncckar flows
In tho toll, summer weather;
Rut last year's leaves and last year' vows
Have ilotvn away together.
