TUSaDAY MORNING, MOV. 29. 1970.
Libels rampast.
The influence of democratic <«w«> np
oo the disloyal element of the South is to
i« again to deod$ of violence
aad rebellion, so that the general govern
ment is obliged to intervene for the pro
of loval men. Were the demo
cratic party to succeed in carrying the
efieossoats throcgboii: die States, a reign ol
Wnr wvxl.J be established iu the
gosjch., and northern men would have to
TVrftssne tie masket Iu defence of the L nion
and aws. The cropping out of this law
less spent ia Kentucky, Tennessee, and
elsewhere ia the rebel States, since the
jate elections, demanding the presence of
Ua-ited States troops for its repression. is
sigwitk-aat of the deplorable results which
would follow should the democracy once
get a majority in the nation. It warns
every republican to beware how he al
lows himself to listen to no-party and new
party advocates who claim that the work
of the republican party is done.
THE RUSSIA-V QUESTION.
Earl Granville has had his reply from
the Russian minister, and learns by it that
the Czar was in earnest when Gortschakoff
sent his first note, and intends to take no
steps backward irom the positions there
assumed. The question now with Eng
land is whether to fight or allow Russia to
have her own way. Upon this there is
serious division in the councils of England.
The Queen is said to favor peace, while
the Cabinet is divided, part sustaining
Granville and part the Queen. Those who
hold to sustaining the “honor” of England
at any cost favor war, believing that Eng
land is in honor bound to sustain the trea
ty of 1856; but there is a pretty strong
party which eschews the question of honor
and holds that the safest and best way for
the nation is to keep out of the difficulty.
This last is undoubtedly the wisest course,
but it ia noi exactly up to the John Hull
standard in point of spirit, and therefore
it will be accepted if at all with a very
poor grace.
MEETING OF CONGRESS.
Congress will assemble again at Wash
ington next Monday. The most impor
tant consideration connected with its meet
ing is the tact that daring adjournment its
previous acts have been passed upon by
the people of most of the States, and gen
erally received their endorsement. The
loss on the republican side ot»the House
has not been for want of confidence in
Congress and the Administration, but
mostly on account of local questions and
divisions, as in Missouri and Tennesee,
where the republicans lose most largely.
We know no instance where the course oi
Congress was fairly brought into issue and
occasioned a loss. A few close districts
were earned against the republicans by
unusual efforts and combinations upon
side issues, but the scarcity of such cases
in proportion to the exertion made is rath
er an evidence of the strength of the par
ty than one of weakness. Congress will
meet then under encouraging and favora
ble circumstances. It has stood tho test
before the people triumphantly, and has
the advantage ol knowing by the criti
cism endured in the election its weak
points, as well as its strong ones, and will
if wise correct the former, while it holds
fast to the latter. The annual message of
the President will be one of the most im
portant and satisfactory messages ever
sent to Congress and the country. It will
show the public debt reduced far beyond
the anticipations of the people, taxation
reduced, the currency nearly to the gold
standard, economy prevailing in all
branches of the government, better seen
rity for lue, property urut nonest elections
existing, peace with all the nations of the
world, peace with the savages, and pros
perity everywhere on our wide domain.
With these general results, the reality of
which are apparent to all eyes not wilful
ly blind, the masses of the people of the
United States will be content, and give
little heed to complaints about minor mat
ters occasioned by personal disappoint
ment, or the stereotyped growling of the
hungry democracy. Let Congress reduce
taxation as rapidly as it can and make cer
tain the payment of the public debt; give
its attention to the improvement of com
merce and navigation : aid to build up the
industry of the country ; promote the hon
est collection of the revenues; enter into
no wars not necessary, nor encourage any
either to please fishermen, Fenians or for
party salvation; raise the civil service in
efficiency and lop oil' the corruptions en
grafted upon It by the democrats ; protect
honest voting at the polls both North and
South; let Congress attend to these tilings
faithfully and it will be sustained against
ail the arts and falsehoods of the opposi
tion and lay a broad and strong foundation
for a republican national victory in 1*7..
The train of the Ohio and Mississippi Rail
way which left Cincinnati last Friday after
noon met with a remarkable escape. When
crossing the Louisville bridge over the Ohio
River the engine was throw n from the track
by a broken rail. Yet, although five feet »l
rail were oat of place, all the real of the train
leaped Ike break and struck the rail on the
otber aide in aafety. When the engine left the
track, the engineer and fireman shut off steam
and climbed out on the boiler, in order, as
they amid, ‘‘to be on top, whichever way she
jumped,” and left the rest to fate.
Will ahe keep the bridge or will she plunge
30 foot to the dark water below just covered
with a thin coating of ice 1 A guard-rail runs
.inmg connecting the ends of the sleepers, and
of # square timber. The edge of this just
catches the flange of the from truck wheel und
they are saved. The rail of wood acts lor the
abort distance as a rail of iron, and conducts
to the left and nothing could have saved them.
Just beyond the bridge the engine left the
'i sleepers, and. tearing away the track in all
directions, plunged down the bank to the left,
but so slowly that the entire train, except the
express-car, remained on the track. The dri
ver and fireman jumped off uninjured, and one
man scratched in the baggage car was the only
casualty.

FIRST WAY—MONDAY.
Yesterday was the day assigned by the
Couit on the 4111- ii.st., for the trial of Ed
ward 11. lloswell, indicted at this term for the
wilful murder of John 11. Tallin, at Hallowdl,
on the IOth day of September.
The prisoner was arraigned on the 2Gth day
of October, when he was taken into Court,
and the Judge at Ilia request assigned Messrs,
l’illsbury and Libbey lor his counsel. The
indictment being read to him he pleaded ••not
guilty." On motion of his counsel, the Court
ordered that he be furnished with a copy ol
the indictment and with processes to summon
his witnesses—also a list of the witnesses ex
amined by the grand jury and a list of tin
traverse jurors in attendance.
The Court came in at 4 o'clock P. M., yes
terdav, hut about half an hour was occuj ied
by a divorce case. This case disposed of, -Mr
Heed, the Attorney General, arose anil said :
May it please your Honor: The time hav
ing arrived which was appointed for the trial
ot Edward 11. lloswell, 1 move the court thai
the prisoner he brought in mid placed at tin
bar for trial.
The prisoner was brought in by the slier it!
and placed in the prisoner's dock, lie was
dressed in broadcloth pantaloons and coat
and black satin vest; he also showed an im
maculate shirt-bosom with handsome gold
studs. When fir-t brought in he was much
affected, and held a white handkerchief ovei
his eyes, as if weeping; hut after a short
time he seemed to have completely recovered
his composure, and watched the proceeding
with intense interest.
Fifty-eight persons had been summoned,
from which to impanel a jury, hut to tin
Clerk's call three tailed to answer to then
names. After a few short delays, the Judg<
directed the impaneling ol a jury in thi
manner prescribed by law, whereupon the
Clerk, William M. Stratton, turning toward
the prisoner, said .
“Edward II. Hnswell, you arc now to be
tried upon the indictment which has been rcao
to you, ami these good men whose names 1
shall call are to pass upon your guilt or inno
cence. If you reject any of them you must do
it as i hey are called and before they are sworn.
You have the right to challenge twelve, per
eiutorily, without assigning any reason, and
as many more as you shall show cause why
they should not sit upon the case.”
The J' isoner—(rising from his seat in tin
prisoner'* box)—I would like to sit where 1
can speak to my counsel.
The Court—Mr. Sheriff, you may let the
prisoner have a chair by the side of his coun
sel. [ file prisoner thereupon was shown to
a seat by the side of Mr. Libbey.]
The Clerk proceeded to impanel a jury,
by drawing cards from a box. each card bear
ing tlic name of a person summoned. In ex
ercising tlie right of challenging allowed him
by law, the prisoner, through his counsel, Mr.
Bibbey, peremptorily challenged Messrs. Mel
vin Tebbetts. Fred S. Clay, Edmund Brugg,
Thomas .1. l’inkliani, Walter Boweis, Isaiah
Hawes, Stephen C. Watson, Harrison Chad
wick, Moses Briggs, J. C. Hutchinson and
Jones Buttetficld.
Mr. Charles R. Gilman was challenged by
prisoner's counsel “for a cause.”
The Attorney General peremptorily chal
lenged Isaiah Holmes.
The names of Joseph H. Allen. Allen I).
Niles, Ilenty J. Morrill, Cyrus Wheeler. S.
B. Boardman, Frt cman II. Crowell, Daniel
Libby, Jr., and Daniel Yosinus, were diawn
from the box by the clerk, but their answers
to the interrogatories of the Couit and of the
prisoner's counsel, caused them to be pro
nounced disqualified t o servo as jurymen in
the case.
The jury, as it was impaneled, are as fol
lows :
Gorham A. Chandler, Winthrqp.
Harrison Hanson, BeudfleU.
Oliver S. Kdwards, Monmouth.
Abisha B. Fletcher, China.
Isaiah Robbins, Vassalboro’.
Enoch R. Leach, Monmouth.
Wilson M. lluttins, Li c .field.
John M. I’lummer, Augusta.
Hannibal J. Drake, Benton.
Nathan Kimball, Wintbrop.
llartsoii Hammond, China.
John Barrows. Augusta.
The Court appointed John Barrows, of Au
gusta, Foreman of the Jury.
i ue «juuge s;uu, jmcviuus hi uii- ui
the jury, that it is the purpose < f the law to
secure to every one charged with ciinie, a
trial by an impartial jury : that if any ol those
who had been ri turned as jurors had form' d
or expressed any opinion with regard to the
guilt or innocence of the prisons.; ; or if they
were related to the prisoner or to the deceas
ed. Mr. Laflin, within the degree of second
cousin; or if thugs had conscientious scruples
in regard to finding a prisoner guilty when
the penalty is death; they would be disquali
fied to sit in the trial of this ease. lint the
law does not consider a juror disqualified,
simply because he may have read in tiic news
papers of the day an account of the nti'air,
nor because he may have received tin indefi
nite, unfixed impression with regard to the
guilt or innocence of the prisoner on trial.
Impressions thus derived from articles pub
lished in the newspapers, have been held not
to disqualify a juror. If he feels still that his
judgment is so free front prejudice that he
can give the prisoner an impartial trial, then
such vague impressions do not di-quality him
to sit. it must be such a fixed, definite opin
ion, that it would require evidence to over
come it. It will also depend very much upon
the jutor’s own sense of the condition ol hi
mind, and he must answer for himself,
and determine whether he feels any such
bias or prejudice as will prevent his try
ing the present case with impartiality,
lie said that jurors are simply to determine
the truth ot disputed fans—tin v have nothing
to do with the law or its consequences; hut
still if there were jurors present who felt that
they had conseicn ious scruples in finding a
verdict ol guilty where the punishment is
death, he said they should make the fact
know n, b. cause the law disqualifies them from
sitting in the case.
The panel being complete, the indictment
against the prisoner was read to the jury by
the Clerk, and is as follows ;
STATE OK MAINE.
Kkknebkr, ss.—At the Supreme Judicial
Court begun awl hot Jen at Augusta, uitliin

The Judge instructed the jury very clearly
and emphatically in relation to their duty and
responsibility, lie said : You will be com
pelled now while you serve ns jurors to be
kept together, and w ill not be allowed to min
gle with citizens at large, during the entire
trial. Officers, duly sworn, will attend you;
they will turnisli you with convenient lodg
ings, and will wait upon you as your necessi
ties require. If any of you have any direc
tions w hich you wish to send to your families,
I shall allow you to do so now ; or if anything
occurs to you during the progress of the trial,
and you w ish to send or receive a message. I
shall allow you to do so, no objection being
made by counsel, on making known the fact
to me. Butyou must not send or receive uny
letters unless they lirst pass through the hands
f the Court. You must hold no conversation
with anybody in regard to the ease or anything
else. You are to hold no communication
with the outside world. I recommend you to
Keep your judgments entirely free—that is,
ivoid, as far as possible, coming to any con
clusion in regard to the merits of the case un
it it lias been completely tried and submitted
to you—until you have heard all the evidence
ind the arguments on both sides and the
charge of the Court. You will then have the
evidence, the views of the counsel on the one
side and the other, and the law as it is given
by the Court. You will, then, he prepared
to make up your venUct. Until that time,
keep your minds and judgments ns free from
prejudice ns it is possible for you to do.
Mr. Reed, Attorney General, moved that
the jury be afforded a view of tlft1 premi
ses where the deed was committed, before the
opening by the prosecution, in order that it
night be more intelligible.
Mr. I.ibbey, one of the counsel for the de
fense, said be very much desired that the
jury should have an opportunity to examine
the place where the crime was alleged to
i.ave been committed. Whether it should be
before or after the opening, was comparative
ly immaterial to him. It oeeured to him,
however, that the jury might be able, per
haps, in viewing the place, to understand the
matter somewhat better, if the opening is
first.

The counsel were given permission by the
Court to accompany, under certain restric
ions, the jury to the place where the alleged
crime wa* committed.
It is probable that the visit will be made
Tuesday forenoon.
The jury were eiven in charge of Deputy
Sheriffs Stint hfield and Blunt, who were
'Worn to the strict performance of their res
ponsible duty.
Tin* official reporters were sworn.
The court-room, during the proceedings,
was completely tilled with an interested and
circumspect crowd. The session held from
4 o’clock until about 7 o’clock.

DU. FCTIEKCK ADVISF.ST CONSUMPTIVES
TO GO TO FLORIDA IX 1V1XTKR.
Having for the last thirty-five year* devoted my whole
tlm • amt aiteutionto the siuuv oi lung diseases and con
sumption, 1 feel that 1 umbrsiand fully the courw that
cu;. lit to lie pursued to restore a tolerably bad case <f
disca^t d lunvs to h. alihy soundness. The first amt n:o*t
important step Is. for the patient to avoid takimr cold;
and the best of all places on this continent for this pur
pose, in winter, is Florida, well down in the .state, where
the temperature is regular, and not subject to such varia
tions as in more northern latitudes. 1‘alatka Is a point
1 can recommend. A pood hotel la kept there by Peter
man. Last winter I saw several persons there whose
lungs had been badly diseased, but who, under the heal
inp influence of tho climate and my medicines, were get
ting well.
One hundred miles farther down the river is ft point
which I would prefer to l'alatka, as the temperature is
more even and the air dry and bracing. Mellunville and
Enterprise ate located there. 1 should give a decided
preference to Mellunville: it is two miles from river or
lake, and it seems almost Impossible to take cold there.
The tables in Florida might be better, and patients com
plain at times; but that is a good sign, os it indicates a
return of appetite : and, when this is the case, they gen
erally increase in fle»h, and then the lungs mast heal.
Jacksonville, lllbemla, Oreen Cove, and many other
places in various parts of Florida can bo safely recom
mended to consumptives in winter. My reasons for say
ing so are. that patients arc less liable to take cold thero
than where there is a lest even temperature: and it is
not necessary to say, that, where a consumptive person
exposes himself to frequent colds, he is certain to dio
shortly: therefore my advice is. go well down into tho
Maie.'out of the reach of prevailing cast winds and fogs.
Jacksonville, or almost any other of the localities 1 havo
named, will Ik nefit those who are troubled with a torpid
liver, ft disordered stomach, deranged bow els, sore throat,
or cough; but, for those w hose lungs are diseased, a more
southern point is earnestly recommended.
For fifteen years prior to l&bl), I w as professionally In
New York, lloston, lialtimore, and 1 hiladelphia every
week. where 1 bavv and examined on an average five
hundred patients a week. A practice so extensive, em
bracing every possible phase of lung disease, has enabled
mo to understand tho disease fully ; arid hence Hiy caution
In regard to taking cold. A person may take vast quanti
ties of ** Schenck’s Pulmonic Syrup, Seaweed Tonic, and
Mandrake l'illa," and yet die it lie does not avoid taking
cold.
In Florida, nearly everybody Is using Schcnck's Man
drake Tills; fur the climate is more likely to produce
bilious habits than more northern latitudes. 3i is a w eii
< sta birthed fact, that natives of Florida rarely die ofeon
aumption, especially those of tho southern part. On tho
other hand, in keW England, one-third at least of tho
population die of this terrible disease. In the Middle
Mates, it does riot prevail ao largely ; still there are many
thousand* ofcu»es there. >Vhat a vast percentage of
l.fo would be saved If consumptives were as easily alarm
ed in regard to taking fi esli colds as they are about btar
1U fever, binall-pox, Ac. 1 but they arc not: they tuko
w hat they term a little cold, which they arc credulous
enough to believe will wear off in a few days. '1 liey pay
no attention to It; and hence it lays the foundation for
another and another btill, until the lungs arc diseased be
yond till hope of cure.
.MV ttuvice IQ |KT»on'» nnwo aiv nurticu, vmii
slightly, is to lay in a stock * f.sclicnck’s Fulmonic Syrup,
Sc h e nc k *s K cawe«d Ton ic, and Scbenck s M andrakc F111 *,
and go to Florida. I recommend these particular medi
uk-h, because I am thorough y acquainted with their
action. 1 know, that, whore they are used in strict ac
cordance with my directions, they will do the woik that
rcqi.rcd. This accomplished, nature will do the rest,
'ihc physician who prescribes tor cold, cou^h, or night
sweats, and tltcn advises the patient to walk or rule out
every day, will be sure to have a corpse on his hands
before long.
joy plan Is, to give my three medicines in accordance
with the printed directions, except in some cases where
n freer use of tho >1 and rake Tills Is necessary. 31 y object
i. i, to j n o tone to the stomach,—to get up a good appe
t.u . it is always a good sign when a patient begins to
grow hungry: 1 have hopes of such, with a relish for
I ><>d, and the gratification of that relish, comes good
Mood, and with it more flesh, which Is closely followed
bv a healing of tho luius, —then the cou* h loosens and
abates, the creeping chills and clammy night sweats no
longer prostrate and annoy, and the patient gets w*rl,
provided he avoids taking cold.
Now, there are many consumptives who have not tho
means to go to Florida. The question may be asked, Is
tlu-re no hope for such ? Certainly there is. 11 y adv ico
to such is, and ever has been, to stay in a warm room
during tho winter, with a temperature of about seventy
degrees, which should ho Lent regularly at that point hjg
means of a thermometer, Let such a patient take In*
< xert iso within tho limits of tho room by walking up aiul
down as much as In strength will permit, in order tii
keep up a lit allliy circulation of the blood. 1 have cured
thousands bv this system. and can do so again. Con
sumption is as easily cured as any other disease, if it is
tuktninFmc, and llio proper kind of treatment is pur
sued. 'i ho fact Hands undisputed on record, that
sdu-nck's Pulmonic Hyrttp, Mandrake Fills, and Sca
wc< d l onlc ha\ e cured v ery many of " hat scrim d*Jbo
hopeless cases of consumption. Oo wlu re you will, you
w ill be almost certain to hud some poor consumptive
v. ho has been rescued lpom the very jaw s of death by their
