J.f PRE SIDING. Friday'.—State vs. Catherine Waller alias Carrie M. Waite. Cha les E. Somerby, book-keeper at the Cana] Bank, was called as an expert in hand-writing, and asked to compare three lots of letters—one package received by John Waller from his wife in Portland; four others written in red ink and addressed to Wall er since suspicion fastened upon Mrs. Waite, and bearing a different signature; and two acknowledg ed to be Mrs. Waite’s. Mr. Somerby testified that, in his opinion, the letters were all written by the same band, bat the writing was disguised in the four written in red ink. Mrs. Jennie Spear, testified that she met the re spondent iu Portland in 1869; she then went by the name of Kate Wallace, and called on Miss Blakeley with some young women whose acquaintance she had madefton board of the Carlotta; sai l her father was a descendant of Sir William Wallace; James Spear, now witness’s husband, was aiterward pay ing attention to Kate Wallace; after be broke the en gagement inl870 she disappeared ;saw her next at At lantic Lodge, and her husband said she then called herself Carrie M. Kent; Kate Wallace’s hair was a dark brown; Mrs. Waite’s seems to be black; wit ness then approached the prisoner and repeated this statement about the variation in the color of the hair, but said she had no doubt respondent was Elate Wallace. Mr. Austin Edgerly, of Cape Elizabeth, was in spector of customs in Portland in 1869, and engaged this respondent, under the name of Kate Wallace, as a servant, on board ot the Carlotta, on her arrival in Portland; she was poorly dressed; remained in his family until December, and used to call there unti1 the next May; has not seen her since, but is satisfied of her identity, though her hair is darker than for merly ; when she first came.witness said,her hair was about the color or this little girl’s—pointing to Carrie Waller. Mr. John P. Smith of Portland was ctlled next, and said he had been a hair dresser for 14 yearB, and was familiar with the manufacture of wigs aud the processes of dyeing hair. The County Attorney then requested the prisoner to remove her hat, and allow the witness to see her hair. Her counsel objected, on the ground that no de fence had yet been set up on the plea that the color of the prisoner’s hair Jittered from the description given by the government witnesses, and it would be time to introduce rebutting testimony when that plea was offered. xiie court sustained me oojeciion,anu me eviueuee, at this st ige of the case, was ruled out. The Rev. Mr. Wright of the St. Lawrence street <Congregational) church, testified that he married the defendant, Catherine M. Kent to Edward F. Waite, April 24, 1873, in the forenoon. Tne County Attorney said here the testimony for the prosecution closed. The counsel for the defence asked if the letters had been introduced as a part of the testimony; the stenographer, referring to his re port, said they had not. The County Attorney then moved to have them put in. The counsel tor defence then moved an adjournment till 21-2 p. m. The government testimony amounts to this: The witnesses have identified the respondent, by no spec ial marks but positively and without hesitation, as the woman they have known, some of them as Cath eiine McKenzie, afterwards the wife of John Waller, and others as Kate Wallace, Carrie M. Kent, and finally the wife of Edward F. Waite. The marriage with Waller is proved only by the testimony of wit nesses who say they were present at a ceremony pur porting to be a marriage, and all such testimony has gone in under the objection of the counsel for the de fence, on the ground that secondary evidence is not admis8able when primary proof is attainable. Be sides the personal identification, it is in evidence that during her visit to John Waller last summer, the woman who certainly was his wife, and whom the witnesses identify with Mrs. Waite, gave to John Waller’s housekeeper— a handkerchief marked Car rie M. Kent. The medicine which the same witness es took from her trunk and administered to John Waller’s children, has been identified by George C. Frye, a Portland apothecary, who put it up from a prescription by Dr Henry P. Merrill, who testifies that he gave the presciption to Mrs. Waite. The court came iu again a little iater tian the time named at the adjournment, and it was nearly three o’elock before the counsel for the defence appeared with the letters, which the County Attorney now proposed to put into the case. Mr. Verrill objected, on the ground that the let ters are not sufficiently identified as the respond ent’s, and furthermore have no relation to the ques tion to be tried. The court ruled that the identification of the let ters, as a question of fact, 1 belonged to the jury. As to their relevancy, the court had not read them, but must trust to the Comity Attorney not to introduce irrelevant matter. Mr. Vprrill thpn nviuMlwl oil Hi. 1..**—« ——*■ in should be read, stating that he had only time to examine them very hastily. The County Attorney then proceeded to read twenty-nine lette s from Catherine Waller to her husband, John Waller. The letters were mostly short, and defective in dates, some of them having none at all, and very few giving the year. With one exception, they all appear to have been written from Portland. One is from Boston, announcing the writer’s intention of returning soon to Portland.— The story which they tell, is of a wife who coming to Portland, went out to service, first at the house of Mr. Edgerly, a custom house officer, and afterwards lived on Oak street, in Congress place, on Bramhall street, and elsewhere in the city. In almost every letter she speaks of sending money home, sends ten der messages to her children, tells of her lonesoroe ness and longing to be at home, but declares never theless that she cannot go back to the life she led there before. She reminds her husband that be is happier than when they were together, but attributes their differences to the poverty of their lot. Once she asks him to send her a Truro paper, and promises to send the money to pay for it. She asserts over and over again her fidelity to him, saying she has never loved auy other man, and bids him to be true to her. If they had enough to live in comfort, she says, God knows how gladly she would go home, and cal's her self his lvoing wife. In the Boston letter, however, she says she has a chance to go to California, and if she goes she will never return to Nova Scotia. She complains of frequent sickness, preventing her from sending money, and talks sometimes of making a vis it at home when she gets money enough, but al ways insists that she will not go back to live as be fore. In a letter of February 15,1873, she replies to an angry letter from Waller, telling her if she can’t be content with what he has, in God’s name to stay where she is. She says she cannot live in poverty as they have done. If he is tired of living alone, he can get a divorce on the ground of desertion. She says sue has never loved any one on earth but him and does not wish to give him up, but if he wants a di vorce he cau have it all his own way; she will not in terfere. There is another letter dated August 1,1873, after the visit to Pictou, in reply lo a letter accusing her of having made a new marriage. It is a very an gry letter. She could have got a divorce if she had wanted it and if she desired to marry agai$ would have cheated no man, but would have told him the whole truth. But if John Waller is a sample of the men, she prays God to keep her from them all. In this letter she says Bhe intends to sail for Cuba in five weeks. The letters are ungrammatical, and many words spelled Incorrectly, but not without a certain vigor of expression, which js ver., marked in the last of the series. Mrs. Waite listened with an appeal ance of great interest, ocersionally turning to her husband, Mr. Waite,with a smile, which he reciprocated. Then came two letters written avowedly by Mrs. W. ite, on the 8th of Sept. last. The first was addressed to John Waller, and was accompanied by a note from Mr. Waite, which was ruled out by the court. Mrs. Waite’s letter explains that she was in Truro (in July apparently) and met there a woman called Mrs. Waller, but don't know whether she was Mr. Waller’s wife or not. The second letter is addressed to Mrs. Geo. Hol den, who had then identified Mrs. Waite as her brother’s wife. Mrs. Waite says she knew a girl named Carrie Waller, who resembled her. That Car rie Waller said she had a husband in Pictou, and meant to fool him, anJ that Carrie's plot has involv ed her in this dreadful suspicion. She relies, howev er, upon her husbands’s constancy, and he knows whether he married a girl or a woman. She adds that Mrs. Holden seems to take more interest in the matter than her brother, who says women are plenty enough in Nova Scotia. During tbe reading ot this letter, Mrs. Waite hid her face in her muft. The letters in red ink were not introduced. Mr. Verrill then opened for the defence. He com menced by commenting on the danger of identy; that it was a most momentous and solemn question for the jury to decide whether Mrs. Carrie M. Waite is John Waller’s wife; that in order to show how easy it is for a person or persons to be mistaken as to the identy, he read as illustrations several cases in England and France where people had been con demned and executed under a mistakened identity. Among these he read from the Webster trial as to the identy of Mr. Parker. Mr. Verrill claimed that the proof of the first mar riage of Catherine McKenzie to John Waller was not satisfactorily proved, and further that the proof of ident^ falls far below the requisite standard to main tain this prosecution; he further stated that if the government does not show beyond a reasonable doubt that Carrie M. Kent is the wife of John Waller the verdict must be not guilty. The first witness called for the defence was Aleger non Fassett. My businers is repairing in a furniture shop; first got acquainted with the respondents year ago last fall; I knew her by the name of jOarrie M. Kent; 1 made her acquaintance at the corner of Market and Federal streets; I saw her most every day in the week; one day she came into the shop with another lady dressed very much as she was and their complexion and form were tbe same; Miss Keut gave me an ntroduct'on to the other lady, and I think but am not positive, that the name was Miss McKenzie; 1 just pasj-ed the time of day with her and after that she went out; I then said to Miss Kent hat I should take the young ady to be a twin 6ister »f hers; she said she was not but that a shot 11 me before this girl had gone by the name of Kate Wal lace ; that she went to Boston and stopped a short ime aud came back under another name, which I ibink was McKenzie; 1 saw her afterwards passing down Market street; 1 saw her twice in the shop af terwards; one afternoon I met a lady that I suppos ed to be Miss Kent, on tbe street, and spoke to her; she did not pay any attention to me but looked £-t me and went along; the next morning I said to Miss Kent “you felt pretty grand yesterday afternoon that you could not speak to me on the street”—and she (Miss KeDl)dcnied that she metmeon tbe street; £ think she was introduced to me some time in Jan uary but 1 am not positive; I have no doubt but that t his person I met on the street and thought was Car rie M. Kent was the other girl. After the cross-examination of the former witness the counsel for the defendant^cal led Angus Me Mil !an, who testified that e was a carriage painter and has a shop on Market stieet; never was personally acquainted with respondent but I knew she worked at Mr. Libby’s, and one day I saw her pass by my jbop with the respondent who looked just like,her; never spoke to the respondent. Mr. Verrill then called Dr. True, but the officer who served the subpoena stated that the Dr. was out of tow n and could not be reached betore to-morrow morning. jurt tnen adjourned until eignt o ciock in me evening. At eight o’clock court came in and the case of State vs. John Carlin was taken up. Carlin was indicted at the September term for an assault upon Charles H. Merrill. Hon. T. B. Reed appeared for the respondent and put in the plea of insanity. Under the statutes of this State the respondent was sent to the Insane Asylum for observation. Dr. Harlow,Superintendent of the Insane Asylum, testified that he had no doubt that the defendant was, and still is, laboring under a species of delus ionary insanity. The jury returned a verdict of not guilty by reason of insanity. Carlin will therefore be sent to the Insane Asylum for the remainder oi his life, or until such time as he shall satisfy a judge of the Supreme Court that he has fully recovered. Libby, County Attorney. T. B. Reed for deleudant. The Court then adjourned until nine o’clock this morning. Brief Jottings. Mr. F. O. J. Smith’s horse took himself to flight in Market Square yesterday afternoon* but a hy stander seized him by the head and brought him to a standstill. A new Marine Insurance Company, with a capital of $100,000, is in contemplation in this city. There has been no business before the Mu nicipal Court for three [days past.

A private despatch received in this city states that the brig Rover is ashore at Money Cove, Grand Menan, with 1800 barrels of flour con signed to the Grand Truuk. The vessel has bilged, and cargo being discharged. Brig Machias, which arrived at this port from Matanzas yesterday had a terrible stormy voyage and was thirty days on the way.

The Elevator.—The members of the Com mittee appointed by the managers of the Board of Trade held a consultation wiih Sir Alexan der T. Galt at the Falmouth House last even ing in regard to a grain elevator. The rest It of the conferauee was not altogether satisfac tory. Sir Alexander does not care to rebuild, because of the pressure of other business upoD bis time; but has no doubt, from past expe rience, that an elevator would pay reasonably well whether built by a company or au indi vidual, The subject of a joint stock company was mooted but no satisfactory arrangement effected with Sir Alexander. Certain sugges tions will however be brought to the notice of the Board of Trade. It is |very evident that if Portland merchants want an elevator they must build it. The necessity admits of no doubt, and prompt measures must be taken in tbisalirection, Personal.—Hon. Warren Johnson, State Superintendent of Schools, will lecture at Fryeburg, Friday evening, Feb. 6. Mr. F. B.

I°.f 00P1™ of the con pSi d 1 furu,she*l members was At the expiration of the morning hour Mr Uarpeuter resumed his speecli on the Louisi ana matters. He did (not condeui President Gram 8 course in the Louisiana matters as he merely carried out the orders of the’federal courts. The responsibility rested on Durrell He then read different dispatches to United States officials, aud from State officials to the authorities in Washington. He quoted the constitution to show that the President could interfure with a Slate only in case of insurrec tion or when obstruction is made to the laws of the United States. Hedenitd that the At torney General’s telegram was a recognition of Piuchback’s election, and the time has not ret come for the President to sit in a cushioned chair, aud telegraph over the country, “I rec ognize you as Governor; I recognize such a legislature.” The bogus government of Lou isiana, now standing a year with riots and dis turbauces, was all the result of the non action of Cougress. A new electiou should have been ordered at the last sesfion. Ae referred to the all night session, aud when tha vote at five in 'he morning showed a majority of two agamst ordering a new election. "!■** iuuuuu—mat wita me iruuuie. Mr. Carpenter—Yes, it was the trouble. Trouble to the State, county an i fair name of the nation. In answer io Mr. Morton, Mr. Carpenter said, the President’s Proclamation was without au thority as there was no domestic violeuce w r raottngeis interference. He denied that the legislature eltcted Pinchbrood had been recog nized by the President, as claimed by Morton, but on the conlrar.v when they called on him he treated them with entire contempt. The Pres ident’s proclamation was productive of goud, but it did not as stated by Morton put an estop pel upon any actiou hv the Seuate. he (Carpen ter) made no pretence to be a lawyer, nor was he much of a politicise, aud be had no doubt Morton would lay for him aud report him to bis constituents as abusing the President. He claimed Congress had a power to'decide as to legality of State governments aud not that the President should decide for Congress as claimed by Morton. Heclaimed that the Senate had a right to examine into the legality of elections, but the House had uu such authority. Carpen ter continued that the State Supreme Court did uot biud the Senate, it had no iunsuiction. The canvass in Louhiaua was false aud has been proven so by the very men who made it. The whole thing was a fraud. [Applause in the galleries.] In his bill ordering a uew elec t on he said he would show Kellogg was not le gally ele ted. The returns sent by the Com missioners were genuine and showed a majori ty for McCreery. Carpeuter continued to de tail the action of Packard and others, and said the government of Louisiana was not io the hands of men elected by the people, and conse quemiy was uot under a Republican form of governmnnt. carpenter closed by statiug the Kellogg gov ernment illegally set up by Durrell, and no government could be more despotic than one set up in this manner. Mr. Morton responded and said the Republi cans of Louisiana regarded the demaud for a , new election as a movement of their enemies. Business men and hunest laboring men opposed ’ a new election because they oppose anarchy, for the overturning of the paesent State gov ernment would be the signal for the shedding of blood. He said Carpenter bad stated noth ing correctly, although unintentionally There is blood in this movement The men moving in it are covered all over with blood. They are old assassins of 1866, ’68 and ’73, the murderers who killed more than 2000 colored men in 1868, and he had evidence showing that John B. McEuery acted with the n.ob ou March 8, last year. Of all these murderers not one h id ever been brought to account, and his friend Car penter now found himself with that crowd. He claimed that Kellogg actu illy represented a majority of the people of Louisisue. This question involves a great constitutional princi ple, for if Congress can interfere in one State government while at peace, then every State would be at the mercy of the Federal govern ment. HOUSE. Under the call of Committees for reports of a private character, various reports were made and referred. Mr. Coburn of Indiana, from the Committee on Military Affairs reported a joint resolution requesting the Pres dent to convene a Court of Inquiry of not less than five officers of the army to investigate fully the charges against Gen O. O. Howard, contained in the conmu nication of the Secretary of War to the Speak er of the House, and report their opinion as well on the. moral and legal responsibility for such offences, if any mav be discovered. Mr. h'ryo of Atiiine offered an amendment, giving the accused the right to challenge, now allowed in law in trial by Court Martial. Mr. Coburn declined to let the amendment be offered. During the debate wb.ch was participated in by a large number of members, Mr. Hawl y of Connecticut said that the accused party had the right in court martial to challenge the members of the Court. Mr. Frye explained that his amendment only required that Geo. Howard (whose reputation is involved) should have precisely the same rights as those accused in a court martial He theu proceeded to say that having known Geu. Howard from his boyhood, he n -ver had known a stain or a shadow ou his character, and neither Gen. Howard or his friends shrink from inquiry. No reflection wts intended on the President by tbe amendment. Mr. Wood of New York said that Howard had quibbled and resorted to all means to pre vent the truth b ing told. Mr. Woodford of New York defended Gen. Howard, saying if chrisliau soldiership had covereQ a wrong so much the worse; but there necer bad been an hour when Sincere Christian manhood was more needed in .the country aud in the House than now. mr. ouuuru ui tuuiaua aeciarea mat no one intended an unkind ness to Howard and Gen. Howard had said to him (Cobur.i) yesterday that the resolution was satisfactory to him. Mr. Butler of Massachusetts did not regard the amendment as a reflection on the Presi dent. Considerable debate followed during which Mr. Wood of New York alluded to Geu. How : ard as a “trickster” when he was called to I order by Mr. Garfield, and the Speaker decid ing that Wood had used an unparliamentary term he (Wood) withdrew it. j The hour for debate here expired and the Speaker then put the question on Mr. Frye’s amendment and it was adopted, yeas 172, nays 64. The j'*int resolution as amended was then passed. The House then proceeded to the considera tion of private bills. A private bill involving a new and important principle gave rise to considerable discussion. It was tne case of a trading v ssel, the Nor man, which was pressed into the service dur ing the last war and which was captured by the enemy, the master and crew bein? thrown into a military prison where the master died. The bill gives to his widow (Penelope Head of Massachusetts) the peusiou attaching to the rink of master in the navy. It was supported by Messrs. Buffinton and Butler of Massachusetts and opposed by Mr. Holman of Indiana, as the commencement of a civil pension list. The bill passed. The joint resolution providing for furnishing copies of the Congressional Record to mem bers and senators was taken from the table. The substitute adopted by the Senate was not concurred in and a committee of conference was ordered. The joint resolution as origin ally passed provided twenty-four copies for each Senator and member. The Senate sub stitute provides twenty-three copies for mem bers and forty-one for Senators. The joiut resolution was passed giving the thanks of Congress to the officers and crew of the steamship Atlantic for saving the crew of the brigantine Scotland in mid ocean. The House then adjourned till to-morrow Tomorrow’s session will be for debate only.
