Tlic knowledge tliat the rcmor.d of
Mr. Brlstow from the cabinet would bo
suicidal to the reputation of Gen. Grant
andtotheBcpublican party, has operated
to produce a strong sentiment In one
wing ot the party against his removal.
General Grant is openly warned by this
class ot Kcpubllcans that a move on his
part to eject Mr. Uristow will
place the President on (he side
of the whisky ring Republi
cans and draw down on hhn the bitter
condemnation ot all those members oi the
party who still have a decent respect lor
the opinions of the world. New' Hamp

The St. Louis llrmbtitan Is In 'favor of

this particular appropriation not for the
sake of v'slro, Out because It
believes thnt tho Mississippi Is a national
highway, and tli.'.t Its channels should be
Improved and its banks protected by the
general government. In Its issue of yes

at I no expense or the nation, ami the coin

As soon ns the roll of the Jurors was
called, .Iiuk'i' Dillon rend tho Instruc
tions, which were very long. Including, hi
various groups, the lilt-grain Introduced
hi evidence. Many of t lie letters were
Introduced, and copious extracts from
the president's dcpo.'ltlon. At the out
set, Judge Dillon said that nil the prop
ositions no Had to iiukc, no iiniiiuc con
currence of his nociato on tho bench,
Jiitigu rcnt. Ho explained to the jury
the importance of the case, and tho rea
sons which had made It necessary to keep
them so Isolated. A high compliment
was paid to thu counsel, und tho manage
ment ol the casu on bom sides.
Approaching the issues, Judge
union said that two main questions arose:
one. ns to the i-xMenco of tlio conspiracy.
nnd tho second, as to the connection or
the defendant with it. 1 ho first question
required nine mii-mion, as mo argu
ments (if the counsel on both tides seemed
to accept the existence of tho conspiracy
as provcu. ine wconu question, the con
nection of the defendant with the con
spiracy was then taken up, Tho jury
were cautioned at loncth to ha on their
guard ngalu-t the Influence of popular
clamor, l ney were also reminded that
tho government owed a duty to Its
citizens, as well as Its revenue, and It lay
in the province of the Jury to acquit as
well :a convict. Thu prosecution had
nrnicnteil no evidence to show that the
defendant had oyer declared his connec
tion with the conspiracy, or had writ
ten a direct admission ot this connection.
The law, however, did not require this.
It was a case of circumstantial evidence.
It was riL'lit for them to consider the
motives oi tho defendant. Tho govern
ment alleged as tha only motive that of
pecuniary gain. Tho evidence of Everest,
who mailed the letter ill which he thought
Joyce put a S-'AXI bill, nud the evidence of
Jlaelll. who testified to taklnc from the
letter-box a similar letter, aud returning
: to Joyc;, were considered, and the
ucstlon ofcrcdiblllty left to tho Jury,
'he tclecrams, letters and portions of tho
President's deposition bearlnir ou the
death of Collector lord, and the appoint
nieutofhls successor were read. Two
questions, the court considered, arose ou
the succcssorslilp of Ford. The first was
whether the delendajt sought to Influence
the president ou thu succcssorslilp, and
second, whether he did this In tho In
terest of tho conspiracy, having
knowledge ot that conspiracy. Judire
Dillon then read all the dispatches ot theJ
spring or 1&74, relating to Joyce's visit to
San I rnnclsco, und Commissioner Doug
lass' permits to omcr revenue agents to
go out ol their district.
Judge Dillon finished reading Ids
charge, and the jury retired a lew min
utes past iu o'clock.
The remainder of tho judge's Instruc
tions are In the hands of the circuit clerk.
aud cannot bo obtained for further con
densation for the afternoon papers. They
arc about six columns long.
(Ht touts Republican ot Yeatcrdajr.)
The court Immediately after the charge
was delivered, took a recess until' 3
o'clock lu tho afternoon, and the room
was cleared out. 'lhc crowd, although
It left the court room, did not lrnvo tho
vicinity, but settled on tho neighboring
sidewalk, blocking passage, staring up
at windows of the room where tha Jury
was supposed to be, nnd speculating aud
wagering on the verdict.
1 lie jury, as soon as it retired to the
consultation room, proceeded to elect Mr.
R. M. Blackwood foreman. Tins done,
they took a formal ballot without any
discussion whatever, nnd the result was a
unanimous verdict of not guilty. Then
was, of course, somo surprise among
them at this unanimity, but they did not
worry about It. Dinner was brought In,
and they wlillcd away the time till tho
reopening of court In discussing tho
viands, and in converse on approaching
liberation from their long confinement.
Court opened at three o'clock with but
a few persons in attendance. Almost
immediately upon tho opening Col.
Hatch, of counsel for McKce, asked tho
ItiUuIgcucu of the court to hear n motion.
He was about to proceed, when RnllfT
Wheeler appeared and quietly announced
that tho jury was ready to report. Pro
ceedings were at once suspended, and
ucncrai uaococK ami 111s counsel were
notified. Gen. Babcock was laboring
under the highest degree of excitement.
Ho sat in bis accustomed seat, biting ills
lower Hp in a very nervous manner, and
fudire Krum and Judtre Porter wore
with him. and they also evinced a treat
degree ot anxiety. Tho jury filed In and
took their seats. Alter tlio roll had been
called, Judge Dillon asked, "Gentlemen
have you agreed upon a verdict V'Vl'he
answer "We havc,"catno Irom the fore
man In scarcely an audible voice. A slip
of paper was handed to Mr. Shelby, the
clerk, and all eyes were upon him as he
nervously opened it and read. "We. "the
Jury, find the defendant not guilty."
There was an instant of painful silence.
and then some ot Gen. Baucock's friends
in tho rear part of the room began to ap
plaud by clapping of hands. This was
promptly sqpprcsed, but nearly every
body In the court room had risen to
their feet by this time. Hon. Thos. C.
Reynolds walked rapidly over to where
Uabcock was seated and lucid put his
uauu, hut Uabcock made a deprecatory
motion, as though ho disliked lo enter
upon any demonstration that might
tiuiuiu touri ticcortun. lie nuany grasp
ed tlio profiered hand, however, and
shook It. He had received tho verdict
wun a slight hush, but no other evidence
of emotion. Mr. Storrs at this moment
came in, having arrived late, and rushed
at his client with an excited, "Great
uod!" shaklnc its band warmly. The
court, meanwhile, had formally dlschnrg-
vu iiiu jury, mm wished mem a uon
speed to their homes. Judge Dillon and
Judge Treat evinced not the slightest de
gree of feeling at tho ounouiiccmei, but
iiiiimuuneu me Dignity whieii lias charac
terized them through tho trial. While
the Jury tiled out, uen. Babcock broke
nwayfrom his frleuds, and In company
wit iJudgo Porter, Intercepted them in
the r progress, and grasped a hand of
each in a most lervnnt manner. When
the jury had passed out, Babcock re
turned to his friends, aud such a hand
shaking as. was Indulged lu has lscldom
been scon In court. Judge Krum aroso
and made a formal motion that tho de
fendant bo discharged, Judge- Dllllon
asked If there wero any other Indict
ments against him, and Col. Broiulhead
replied, Col, I)Jcr beng absent, that
there wero none. Tho dlschago was
ordered, and Uabcock was borne by
us frleuds through tho clerk's room, bc-

the' dispatch, bowed his acquiescence
ami then looked anxiously around lor his
counsel, who were explaining to. inquir
ing friends what 11 flue jury had tried tho
case. Bclore going up to his room Gen.
Uabcock shook. handa with quite a num
ber of gentleman who offered their con
gratulations. A lit mbliean reporter who wn pres
ent nt the lime accosted Mr. Snrrs with :
"Voti got n Verdict in n hurry, Mr.
Storrs, didn't you?"
"You bet wc did," replied Storr",
darling oil to Join Gen. Babcock.
Duiliig the remainder of the afternoon
Gen. Babcock was congratulated by
throngs ot friends, who neeuded the el

nlmost constant stream between the olllee

Over with exultation, and his venerable

too full for utterance in response
to' the congratulatory .remarks of
friends. Then there was Cnpt. Luckey,
the Intimate fi lend nud associate of Gen.
Uabcock, who stood by him firmly
throrghall the emergencies of tho trial.
Ho too had occasion for rejoicing. Tho
captain In 11 brief conversation with n
