The Case of Maj. Gee. On Tuesday, the
Judge Advocate made bis argument before the
Commission, against the motion of the accused
to quash the proceedings, and read an order from
the War Department to suspend the musteriug
out of certain officers detailed to sit in the Com
mission, which order, being dated subsequent to
the President's proclamation, was paramount to
an order to continue the trial, because whatever
is done by any one of the Departments is an order
" from the President in legal contemplation.
The Court, after consultation, decided against
the motion, and the prosecution proceeded to the
examination of witnesses.
On yesterday the prisoner sued out a writ of
habeas corpus before Judge Fowle, of the Superior
Court Bench, which was served on Gen. Ruger,
Commanding the Department of North-Carolina,
to have Maj. Gee before him on Saturday next.
The matter will then be decided whether the trial
before the Military Commission shall continue, a
trial be had before a civil Court, or Major Gee be
set at liberty.
A Confidence Darkle. Mr. C. W. D.
Hutchings keeps a Family Grocery on the first
floor ot the Masonic Lodge, on Morgan street,
and Mr. Ilenry Brown resides at the opposite
corner. A few days ago Mrs. Brown went over
to the store and was looking at some butter and
other things iu that line, but did not buy any at
the time. Shortly after, a big negro man, bare
headed and in his shirt sleeves, stepped Into the
store and said Mrs. Brown told him to come ovc
and get her some butter, that -Mr. Brown was
down 6treet, and she would send the money as
soon as he returned : that Mrs. Brown said he.-
must put the butter in a paper, as her bowl had
starch in it. The butter w as weighed ; Sambo
took it and went out, and that is the last tkat has
been heard ot it. Mrs B. states that she did not
send the negro for the butter, nor did he bring it

An Item with an Appendage. Some
young men, " for the fun of the thing," tied an

Soon utter the uolicemau had gone off with

ALL MEN OF EDUCATION and reflection
should ponder well upon the advantages of
i. He Insurance, auu should promulgate tneirac
quired knowledge throughout the whole circle ot
their acquaintance. Thev should remember that
it recommends itseif in main-instances, not mere
ly as a measure of expediency, but as a boundeu
duty, a duty easily discharged by the payment ot
a moderate sum. 1 lie quest ion is : shall the mar
ried man trust the comfort ot his famitv to a
chance? albeit a promising' one; or is ue n. l
rather bound to make sure of a provision, as fai

relations, for all tho.-e dependant upon him for

rance, assure an adequate provision airain t im
pending poverty and irretrievable distress How
many men have I heard say : " Yes, but I want to
insure tor a large sum wiien I do insure, and it is
not convenient now." And so, because the man
cannot gratify his vanity and pay the premium on
-J0,(KH), he dies, and leaves his wife and child
iiou eless, sorrow-stricken and broken hearted,
thrust on the cold kindness of qun.si charitable
relations, without a cent to bury him or provide
lood lor themselves. And this because lie, the
loving and devoted husband, would not make
even a temporary provision, consonant with his
circumstances, for tile wife who had beeu hi
nurse in sickness, his friend in distress, and whom
he had sworn to cherish and protect, and by the
payment of $75 or f 100, secure many thousands.
Strange that man, who i.wes to his wi.'e the chief
chain of his existence, the every day comfort ol
his life, should be able to look heartl :sslv to that
period when their last parting shall take place,
when n moved to that world, where to hnn, all is
hope and consolation, he s iall have wilfully left
in darkness and desolation, steeped in povcr y
