Mr. Edmunds said that while ht waa willing to
Eroteot all officers of tht Government who acted
oneitiy In tbt discharge of their duties, bt did
not think It Juit to txtend a complete amneity for
acts dont in tht loyal Btates, and where martial
law did not prevail, lit did not think It right
that men who had been really wronged should be
debarred from seeking redress. In tbt time of
that king who was called the first gentleman of
Europe, and who was tht wise monarch, the Brit
lib Parliament had paised a law somewhat similar
to this, but tht British courts would not execute it1
Mr. Cowan aald bo was much struck with tbt
rtmarks of tht Etnator from Vermont, (Mr. Ed
munds. Wart they to throw the mantle of obliv
ion ovtr all aots done by military officers during
tht war, when It Is well known that many of these
acta wert Instigated by private mallet? It was no
merit to bs loyal In New Hampshire or Fenniyl
vanla, where, If a man waa disloyal, ht would very
likely bars beet suspended to a lamp-pott; but In
the couth It wai an evidence of stern virtue and
faerolo courage. Does this bill exempt any military
officer, who has committed a malicious and udJu ti
llable outrage, perbapa from private animosity,
from tht consequence! to which the law would sub.
ject him? If It doer., then this Senate of the Unl

would like to have this bill so framtd that no Inno

Because a rebellion bod existed In one part of

Mr. Clark hoped tht amendment would not bt
agreed to. It limited the provisions of the bill to
those Btates whert the Aaita$ corpus was impended,
and officers In other States who had obeyed tht
ordtrs of their superiors wert to take tbtlr chances
of olvll suits. The provisions of the bill ware then
explained by Mr. Clark. In ont single State, a
State whloh had never seceded, he had been told
that there were now pending over three thousand
salts agelmt loyal men who had assisted to put
down the rebellion. One of the courts of this same
State bad decided that an order issued by a loyal
officer was no bar to a iuit, and that ont from a
rebel officer waa.

Mr. Cowan trusted his tndoritmtnt would not

Continuing his argument, soma sldt talk took

tain Latin phrases wert med.1
Tht Chair Mr. Pomaroy. Gentlemen will ad
dreia their remarks to the Chair.
Mr. Cowan. I wilt, when I don't Ulk Latin.
Mr. Clark resumed. His mantle of patriotism
wai sufficiently broad tocorerall loyal men from
responsibility for acta dont In pursuance of this
Mr. Conneia merely wished to say that when al
most universal amnesty waa extended to unrepent
ant rebels, ht thought It not unreasonable that
Jrottctlon should be extended to tht gallant de
sndera of tht country.
Mr. Edmunds laid that posilonatt legislation
always returned to plagut tbost wbo enacted It.
In our hasty taal to protect one class of tbt otm
mnnlty let na not Injure another class. Let us
proteot them by Indemnity, not by an arbitrary
edict. He was ai anxious as any one to protect
the loyal men of tht country, but did not think
any trne friend of our gallant soldiers would wish
inch a bill at this to pan.

PniLiDiLrsu, April 18 The grand Jury this
morning found a true bill against Antolne Probst
for the murder of the Dearlng family. The prisoner
waa brought Into eourt and arraigned at 1 o'clock,
p. m., after much legal delay. Tbe prisoner hav
ing no counsel, the Court assigned him Messrs.
John P. O'Neill and J C. Wolbert The prisoner
at first said he did not wish to have any counsel at
alt, bat subsequently withdrew his objections.
After a conversation with the prisoner, Mr. O'Neill
asked that the arraignment be postponed nntll he
and bis colleague oould be afforded time to examine
the bills of Indictment. It la understood that
Probst expressed a willingness to plead guilty to
charging him with the murder of Cornelius Corey,
Tbe District Attorney design, however, to try him
upon a bill charging him with tbe murder of Mr.
Bearing Thla will show the confidence of tbe
Commonwealth a officer In the strength of his case,
without availing himself of the pretended confei
ston of the murderer. From Information reoelred
from persons who belonged to the same regiment
and company aa Probst, It Is learned that he waa
a bounty Jumper, who bad entered the service aev
eral times and had received large bounties. Tbey
allege also that he shot his thumb off deliberately,
In order to gain his discharge. Among hla com-
radea hla character waa anythlog but enviable.

There Is a doctor la oar town,
A man of practice and reuowa ;
De makes a haadsome Income clear,
And lays np mousy every year.
Now, when he started oat la youth, ,
He had bat little cash la troth ;
But still he'd try hie best to do,
And make a aame aad money too.
He attended lectures, stndled hard,
And very quickly paaaed the board
lie opeoed office, bang ont sign.
Bat many patients coold oot Dad.
Etch day he sat, with saddened face,
For poverty came oa apace ;
At last a frlead gave him advice
Which cbaoged his fortune la a trlea.
Now patleats flocked from far and near,
And kept him busy all the year
Men and women, alt declare,
No doctor caa with him compare.
Tba secret of his great eaccess,
I'll tell yoa If yoa cannot guess j
The seme advice will help yoa all,
Us got a suit from SMITH'S OAK UALL.
