Cases Ground Through.
New Castle Nov. 27.
The time from 12 m. to 1.30 p. in., was
consumed by counsels, in the civil suits
arguing the whys and wherefores of each
individual's ('their clients ) interests In a
trial, passing over, or a continuance of
their respective cases.
Near the time for adjourning, the jury
in the case • of State vs. Hinson having
brought in a verdict of guilty,the court sen
tenced the prisoner to pay $3 restitution
money and costs of prosecution,on Satur
day next be whipped with 20 lashes, be
imprisoned three months, and

Court re-asseuibled at three o'clock.
Immediately after the Court had been
opened, Mr. Vallandigliam, counsel, for
Samuel Chambers and George Collins,
who are now in jail awaitiug their sen
tence of death, for the outrage upon Mrs,
Smith, asked for a new trial. The rea
sons assigned, lor the application oh the
part of Chambers are, that the minds of
the jury were prejudiced against him.
through the bringing in,in the trial,of the
statement, or confession, of Geo. Collins.
The refusal of the court to try the priso
ners separately made it necessary for the
introduction of the statement, to he used
as evidence against Chamber. The fact
that Collins confessed, under oatn to be
ing with Chambers and participating in
tile act; aud that his confession bore upon
the minds of the Jury detrimental to
Chambers safety, w
counsel, as reason weighty enough to in
sure Chambers a new trial.
And again, since the trial he lias dis
covered that he can prove an alibi.
alleges that he can bring sufficient proof
to testify that fie was somewhere else be
tween the hours of eight and nine, on
that eventful night.
On the part of Collins, the counsel's
prayer set forth the plea that the trial
was illegal, because of an attempted act
being being tried in connection with an
actual one. (It will be remembered that
there were two indictments—each priso
ners being accessory to the act of the
other.) It also set forth as a strong plea
the lack of evidence on the part of Mrs.
Smith to fasten the guilt upon him. The
Court refused to grant a new trial.
The Sheriff was directed to release Mr.
and Mrs. Smith from custody. The fees
of the two persons combined amounted
to $280, which was given to them and
they departed.
thought by the
In order to fill up the leisure moments
advantageously ttie liquor cases were
taken up.
The first was that of State vs. Charles
Doustrap, for selling liquor without li
cense. He plead guilty. The court sen
tenced him to pay a fine of $100 and
costs of prosecution. There was anoth
er indictment against him, but owing to
ill healtli aud other circumstances it was
continued under the promise that he
would violate the law no more.
State vs. Daniel Creeden, of Mill
Creek hundred, for the same offence as
His name being called and failing to
answer, ids bail bonds were declared for
feited, and the case went to trial.
From the testimony it could not be
positively stated whether the party kept
a bar for the sale of spirituous liquors,
whether it was from his own private
reservoir, that his wife, who had sold the
drink to the witness, had drawn the elix
er. That, however, was the subject for
two hours' discussion by the jury who re
turned with a verdict of guilty.
John Henselman, who was indicted
for selling liquor without license, not
answering to his name, his bail bonds
declared forfeited. Mr. John
Fehrenback was his security in two iu
iudictments, $200 each.
His trial proceeded and iu each case
the jury brought in a verdict of guilty
without leaving the box.
About 5.30 the court adjourued until
10 o'clock to-morrow morinng.
The King street curb market was the
largest tbis^ morning, than lias been for

Monday's session of the United States

yesterday afternoon, the Senate having
been In continuous session for twenty
eight hours. Throughout Monday night
and until noon yesterday the Republicans
Interposed dilatory motions and read vo
luminously from ku-klux reports In order
to stave off a vote on Mr. Thurman's res
olution to discharge the Committee on
Privileges and Elections from the further
consideration of the credentials of M. C.
Butler as Senator from South Carolina.
At noon Mr. Hoar, who was In the chair,
called attention to the fact that the hour
for the dally meeting of the Senate had
arrived, and then decided tnat tho legisla
tive day continued until an adjournment
took place. A motion from the Republi
can side to proceed to the consideration of
executive business was voted down—yeas

Mr. Thurman's resolution, and it
adopted—yeas 29, nays 27—Messrs. Patter
son and Conover voting with the Demo
crats. Mr. Edmunds then objected to the
present consideration of the credentials of
Mr. Butler, and under the rules they were
laid over. Mr. Thurman then moved that
Mr. Butler be sworn in as a Senator from
South Carolina, but said he did notask
the Senate to take it up now, and the Vice
President ruled that while the whole sub
ject of the credentials went over under the
objection of Mr. Edmunds, the Senator
from Ohio had the right to enter his mo
tion. Mr. Edmunds gave notice that im
mediately after the reading of the Journal
to-day he would call up the highest mat
ter of privilege, touching the credentials
of Wm. Pitt Kellogg, of Louisiana. The

re-opened adjourned until to-day.
In the House Mr. Morrison, of Illinois,
spoke at length upon the currency ques
tion, during which he claimed that the

answer to but an evasion of the
demands of the West. He declared it left

cy, and gave them control over the volume
of the currency. Mr. Morrison declared
that he would vote for no bill that did not
look at some time to resumption and to a
coin basis for currency and money. A
large number of bills were introduced and
referred, among them a bill providing for
the appointment of a board of five naval
officers to examine the condition of the
vessels now being repaired at the navy
yards: another restoring to the pension
rolls the names of all soldiers stricken off
on account of disloyalty,
was adopted requesting the President to
