Ejk: Son.e of your readers may bs in
terested to know that I am to coin-neon
meetings November 11 in Pulladilohii, in
that portion of It known as Kensington. A
large hall is being fitted up etpeclally for the
meetings, and nearly all the ministers and
churches In" the locality, I am told, are enter
ing into the movement. It Is my earnest
prayer that there may be a most powerful
work of the Holy Spirit. I trust that the
praying ones in Washington, who were espe
cially interested in the union meetings there
last winter, will join me in this petition. I
have been delighted to hear from time to time
that the work which was, by God's grace, be-
fun In Washington last winter has continued
uring the summer.
Dr. J. E. Itankin stated in a meeting where
I was, In Philadelphia, two weeks ago, that he
believed that over twelve hundred had been
united with the churches In Washington since
the revival. It is my prayer that every one
maybe kept by the power of God, through
faith unto salvation. My .heart often warms
In love toward the dear ministers and Chris
tians and young converts, whom we so often
met while In your city. I hope the time may
come when I shall have the pleasure of seeing
some of them again. We have repeatedly
during these past months offered fervent
prayer to God for them. Should any of them
be in Philadelphia during the next few weeks,
we hope they will drop into the meeting, and
that they will find them as Interesting as
those in Washington.
With many thanks for all your kindness, I
am, dear sir, yours most truly,
. P. Hammond.
Waiting for Eettms.
Throughout the Union the excitement over
the election Is Increasing in Intensity. From
all parts reports are received showing the try
ing suspense of the citizens. Up to 12 o'clock
last night hundreds of people were in the
street,, eagerly seeking for the latest intelli
gence. The following accurate statement, sent hence
by the Associated Press on Wednesday nljht,
la (with probably a few immaterial exceptions)
also true oi the condition of affairs In this city
"Washington city to-night Is In a fever of
excitement, which has been continually grow
ing In Intensity slnco the receipt of the mid
day dispatches throwing some doubt upon the
result of the Presidential election. Previous
to that time the success of Tildcn and Hen
dricks was being almost universally conceded.
Private manifestations of disappointment,
gloomyllejection and alarm were very preva
lent among the thousands of Government em
ployees In the Executive departments, but the
afternoon reports inspired fresh hope amonj
them, and in the minds of Washington Repub
licans generally, and have had the effect of
crowding the streets In the vicinity of all the
news centres throughout the evening until
nearly midnight. Members of both parties
give lrec expression to their doubts as to the
result, while patiently, though with intense
anxiety, awaiting further returns; and, aside
from tbo usual noisy comments and vociferous
cheering of partisan crowds, there has been u'o
disorder or public disturbance."
The most noteworthy fact in connection with
this occasion Is that, notwithstanding the in
tensity and feverishness of the excitement, the
greatest good nature has continued among the
large crowds on the streets and elsewhere,
And although opinions and views and hopes
differed very widely, nothing more serious than
good-natured badinage has been exchanged by
contending individuals or parties.
Harder in Haryland.
The body of a man named Peter Lusby was
found on the Marlboro' road, about half way
between the District lino and ForrestviUe, on
Wednesday morning, with three bullet holes
In his breast. It has not been discovered how
his death came about, but It is supposed from
the bruises on his body and head that he got
into an altercation with some one, and in the
affray was killed. Most of Tuesday was spent
by Lusby about the polls In Forrestville, and
he was quite intoxicated during part of the
day. In the afternoon he left the neighbor
hood comparatively sober. Lusby lived just
on the edee of the District. He had a bad
name, and at the time of his death was under
Indictment in the District for an assault with
Intent to kill a colored man named Alfred
Rowles in Unlontown, which affair occurred in
Last night, about 9:30 o'clock, Mr. J. II.
Weber, who resides at the corner of Four
teenth and E streets northeast, found in the
rear of his residence a man named Charles
Jordan, rwho had fallen into an excavation
made in the gutter by the frequent rain
storms. Mr. Weber secured assistance and
had the man conveyed to the Seventh precinct
station, where Dr. Merriam was summoned.
Upon examination it -n as lound that the in
jured man had broken his leg just above the
ankle. He was made as comfortable as possi
ble, and will be taken to Providence hospital
this moraine. According to Jordan's state
ment, it appears that he Is from Savannah,
Ga., and was on his nay to Baltimore, when
the accident occurred.
Necessity the Mother of Invention.
As illustrating the manner In which some
of our most useful and valuable Inventions are
studied out, the following note from the Cen
tennial is very interesting:
Mr. G. n. Metr, of Wyandotte, Kansas, had
a dreadful accident in bis family, by which his
little daughter's hands were crushed, from the
falling of a window. It led to the study-npon
safe fastenings, which, after working out
twelve different methods, developed the "Pre
mium Safe Fastener," patented March 23,
1875. It will receive a diploma, but not a
prize, for the exhibit arrived too late to pass
the Inspection of the jndges. The "Ftuttiur"
locks with a key, making it bnritar-proof, and
is so simple and easily adjusted that It is per
fectly safe in the hands of children.

GUILTY OF MANSLAUGHTER
JConlinuti from Tint I .
auuihrr lu Ma persou or prupcrty. Wnere l e
act Is committed deliberately with a deadly
weapon, and it likely to be attended whi
dangerous consequences, the malice requisite
to murder will be presumed. Wnen one seks
another and enters Into a fight with him,
belnc armed or arms himself, and staba hint,
It is murder, no matter how high the assail
ant's passtoD rose. To make one a principal
and guilty of murder It Is not naccssAry that
be should Inflict the mortal wound. It Is safB
dent if be be present aiding ant abetting ths
act, nor Is It necessary that there should be a
particular malice against the deceased. It la
sufficient If there be deliberate malignity and
depravity in the conduct of the party.
Applying these well-settled principles of the
law to this case, who can for a moment doubt
what the verdict must be? It la registered
already, gentlemen, and was on that national
anniversary, and all of these poor, wretched,
ullty people willingly, willfully and of their
eliberate choice, for the gratification of their
brutal passion, knowlne It was wrong, com
mitted murder on.the body of Richard Lewis.
Mary Wardf went for the knife. 8he brought
it secretly and covertly. She attempted to
conceal it from the byetanders, ao4 did eo fram
some of them; then she secro'Jy slipped it into
the randol Norrie, and with an eager, palpitat
ing heart she ran back to the den or shame in
which she lived to await the close of the
bloody tragedy, of which she was
THeTbIESTESS AND BLOOD! QUEEX.
Do you not know, gentlemen, that abe was
present, aiding and abetting the act! If she
was there, she is guilty of murder In the sight
of God and man. That she hid herself or did
not stay to see the bloody stroke can make no
difference whatever aa to her guilt.
You will remember the nod or signal which
passed between Mary Ward and Harris when
she went for the knife. There was between
these two prisoners a perfect understanding.
She went lor what he wanted, and Harris
wanted what she went for and brought him.
When she took the knife it was with a fixed,
deliberate purpose to give it to Norris that he
might cut, wound or kill Lewis, and It was
no matter which, for If it was one or the other,
then there was malice; and If Nonls com
mitted only an assault, then Harris was only
guilty of an assault. If Norris committed
manslaughter, then Harris was only guilty of
manslaughter. But if Norris committed
murder, then Harris Is also guilty of murder.
These three poor, pitiable people, two men
and a woman, were united on that, to them,
wretched day In a common murder done by all
ol them, and they cannot be separated In the
unlted-puntsbment or wretched fate which
mutt inevitably overtake them. They were
united in life, and tbey cannot be divorced In
death or in eternity. Some slight attempt has
been made, though In vain, to palliate the
enormity of Norris' guilt by a suggestion that
he was drunk; that he was weak-minded, and
that he had some provocation or In some
slight sense acted In self defense; but however
utterly weak, hopeless and unavailing for him
all of these suggestions are. for Mary Ward
or Han Is not even those poor pitiable shadows
exist, for there Is no pretense that either of
them were weak, drunk or in jeopardy. They
are both utterly and entirely without excuse,
justification, or. palliating circumstances.
Theie is, then, for neither of these poor crea
tures but one possible verdict, they are all
GCTLTT, TEBRIBLT GUJLTT,
of the crime of murder, done with the utmost
deliberation, and under circumstances of the
most horrible atrocity. Are the witnesses all,
or any of them, lewd and degraded women,
who live in brothels, and men who frequent
them! The prisoners were of the same class
or the associates of the lewd and abandoned.
Who else would be acquainted with these
people, and who else wonld be an eye-witness
to the transactions in which tbey were actors!
Are the accused without witnesses! If so it la
because all the bystanders saw the same
transactions, beard the same words and wit
nested the same bloody assaults. Tbey are
without testimony becauso there are no facts
to speak lu their favor, and the multiplication
of witnesses would only be to accumulate the
already overwhelming weight of evidence
The struggle has been for all the defend
ants to obtain a verdict of manslaughter only,
not because they Tvero only guilty of that
offense, but through appeals to your mercy
and clemency. The law makes the act mur
der, and requires that your verdict should be
according to the law and the evidence, and the
same law vests the powerof granting clemency
acd the exercise of the quality of clemency
solely and exclusively In the Executive. Let
us, then, gentlemen, all do our duty without
fear or favor. -Give, I beseech you, to the ac
cused every right, privilege and benefit to
which by law they are entitled, give them the
benefit of every reasonable doubt, but do not
wrest the law to the Injury of public justice;
do not let the guilty escape, do not cheapen
human life, do not encourage murder and
slaughter, but say on your oaths whether or
not the accused are guilty, in manner and
form as charged, then, and only then, you will
have the approval of your own consciences and
dischargo well and truly the highest duty of
citlzenthlp and bnmanity.
CHABQE TO THE JUUV.
Judge MacArthur then proceeded to Instruct
the Jury, first reading the prayers of counsel.
He defined clearly the different grades of crime
of which the prisoners could be convicted un
der the Indictment. He said that tbey beheld
the unusual spectacle of threedefendants upon
joint indictment tried for murder. He thought
this had cot before occurred since he had oc
cupied a seat on the bench. He then stated
anew the circumstances of the crime. Speak
ing of the saserlions made In reference to
Norris' soundness of mind, he said that sanity
was the natural condition of the race, and the
law did not impose upon the Government the
duty of establishing the sanity of a prisoner.
He competed that there wts nothing in the
testimony to show Insanity. He consldcrcdthe
aspect of the case presented by the witness
Sarah Poppers the strongest for the defense.
This witness made the affray appear as a con
tinuous fight, during which the fatal blow
was struck, lie considered the pica of self
defense unavailable If the testimony of an
other witness was true that the stick had
been taken away from Lewis. Ho could see
nothing that justified the plea of excusable
homicide on the ground of self-defense.
Though the blow was struck by Norris, yet
others present and participating must be re
garded as principals. If Msry Ward was not
present she should be acquitted; If she was
accessory, eithelr before or after the act, that
was another offense.
In reference to Harris, he said that th'y
could not convict unless It was shown that
Harris knew Norris had murderous intentions,
and the mere fact that Harris passed the knife
did not prove malicious Intent. They should
consider seriously whether there was any ne
cessity for glvli g Norris the knife, and if there
was not, what was the motive, whether for
malice or that Norris might defend himself.
If Harris had fear that Norris' life was In dan
ger, It was his duty as a man to give him the
means of protecting himself. It was for them
to consider not only the distress of the defend
ants and those about them, but they must also
consider the value of the peace of society, and
their protection from other similar crimes. He
could not believe that you will rendera verdict
of justifiable homicide.
Mr. Browne noted exception! to expres
sions by the Court, that there was nothing
in the tcf tlmony to denote Insanity; that 11
Lev Is' stick was taken away there was no fear
of danger to justify the homicide; and that he
could not believe that the jury would render a
verdict of justifiable homicide.
MSCSKEXXEsS NO JUSTIFICATION.
Judge MacArthur said that he had iorgotten
to speak to the jury in reference to the intoxi
cation of defendants. The use of liquor and
the condition of the party at the.time of tho
offense in regard to the use of liquor cannot
justify the crime. If a man is intoxicated,
that lact might be considered to determine the
grade of- the offense. The provocation of
words was Dot legal provocation, but if a party
has been assailed, his condition as to intoxica
tion may be considered in determining whether
he committed a crime in passion or with a set
The case then, at shortly before 3 o'clock,
went to the jury, and in half an hour they re
turned to the court-room.
In answer to the usual questions, Mr.
Noursc, foreman of the jury, replied that they
bad found a verdict of guilty of manslaughter
agalnst-all threedefendants, and recommended
Mary Ward to the mercy of the court.
The prisoners were Uicn brought before the

"Brass" at the National.
Monday sight will signalize the advent here
of George Fawcett Rowc, an actor new to the
National boards, and of a play for the first
time introduced in our city. An exchange
says: "The actor is paid a high tribute when
we say that the merit of the comedy does not
exceed the abilities of the comedian. 'Brass'
is not like any other of the many new plays
of humorous character, nor is Mr. George
Fawcett Rone the counterpart of any other
comedian whom wc can at present name. The
play Is farcical to a degree, and yet where the
action-is most unreal nature is so welt coun
terfeited that, after all, we don't see anything
out of the csVnmon order in the action or the
situations. The dialogue is crisp and spark
ling and tie tableaux striking. Tbe hero,
Waliton Stray, is an individual whose propen
sity for narrating marvelous stories seems to
have wonderfully grown upon him In the life
of respectable vagrancy that he has led, so
much sq, that his 'facta' have, become second
nature to him, and the rcformaUou which he
finally sets about to brine to pass dawns very
gradually indeed. As Mr. Rowe wrote the
play, it Is safe to say that In the action he cer
tainly invests the character with the author's
idea in the creation of the part. Indeed, the
author only would be competent, In assuming
the roll of Walfton Stray, to produce the
amount of delight and good spirits In tbe au
dience that Mr. Rowe does, for there Is not
that In the lines to provoke the mirth that the
fine portrayal of the character gives. In brief,
'Brass may be pronounced an unequivocal
success, and Walfton Stray a character not to
be forgotten by the wearing threadbare In a
lirieT 'reason of the play. 'Fact, we assure
Kerry Wives of Windsor.
Last evening Shakspeare's comedy, "The
Merry Wives of Windsor," was performed at
the National. The points of the play were
shown to tbe best advantage. No more can
be said of Mr. Ben De Bar,' In the character of
-the corpulent knight, FalstafT, than was said
of him when he personated that character In
Henry IV. The only difference between Fal
starTlnnenrylVand FalstalT In the Merry
wives is, mat in mo latter it is raistair in .
lore, and in love with two women at once. Mr.
uen ac uar s xaisuui was certainly in love.
He Is peculiarly fitted to impersonate this
character, and will win a name in that char
act er equal to H ackctt's.
There Is no limit to tbe expressions which
he can summon Into his round face. The
mobility of his features Is wonderful. When
Sir John leans back In his chair and begins to
play upon his features the facial pantomime
is sure to bring out a ripple of laughter.
The other parts of the plav are well taken.
Messrs. Louis L. James and C.L.Ford, re
spectively as Masters Ford and Page, rattle
off their parts well. Edwin Varfey, as Justice
Shallow; Harry Pearson, as Sir Hugh Evans;
Geo. W. Denham, as MasterSlender; Wm.H.
Burton, as Dr. Cains; Mrs. G. C. Germon, as
Mistress Quickly, and Misses Ellen Cummins
and Kate Newton, as the Merry Wives, all do
well In their parts, and the acting is never,
during the evening, lifeless or without aeood
deal of spirit. "The Merry Wives of Wind

night, and at the matinees "Camille" will be
