any regard for real value to bay tbem at their pre

may be carried itlll blcner belore the Inevitable raao
thn comes. Money continues la abundant supiiy,
but there was an increased demand for It notlewabie
for It to-day, and some or the banks advanoed tbelr

food mixed collaterals la. however. 4 per cent., and
be principal dealers in Government securities are
still supplied at I per cent. The banks are not send
ing much currency westward, but money In the West
ern cliles Is working close, and increased dllltoulty is
experienced In obtaining accommodations, while
tlie C hicago journals speak of tbe banks there send
ing currency to tbe country, several of which are still
ordering It from Hi In csnt.e. Commercial paper oon

at 6H7 per cent, per annum dlBconat. In the dry
goods trade to-day there wm not much activity, tbe
rather wMedirfereaces between the views of buyers
and sailers tending to restrict business. There ts a
belter demand at steady prices for silk and wool en
goods than any other kinds, nnd at the uollou eates
the bidding for these was spirited, while domestto
cotton fabrics were neglected and ratber heavy,"
The 17. Y. Times of this morning says:
"The nsrket tor money shows no present shadow
Of turning, oneway or tbe other, and the maeof sup
ply to the broken, on call, at cheaper rates, is wholly
uudlklurbed. Bnt tbe 'bearish' Interest oa the Block
Exchange reuewed tbelr intimations to-day that a
soueir.e would be attempted on tbe eve ol tbe fortu
conilng quarterly bank statement next week. To give
plauHluility to ibis rumor a number of Influential
money lenders Including one or two of the Trust
Company, are suggested as llkelj to be In the combi
nation. As we re ma ked ten days ago on the circu
lation of tbe first rumor about 'lucking op green
backs,' we belitve t litre Is no snbstantUI authority
for tbe use of these names In this connection; at the
same time not doubting that strerupia may bave been
essayed to coss liute sucn a ring."

Having recehed no reply to that letter, Mr.
Train again wrote to him ai follows:
Dublin, FOna Coobts, Mabbh alsba, tieot. 1, IBM.
To the Honorable Keverdy J mason, American
Mlnls'er, London. Dear blr: Permit me to suppose
tbe case of a change of places. You an American
citizen, five months Incarcerated m a political pri
soner In a deb ot's goal, and I the American Minister
In Loudon Yon write me a courteous letter, expect
ing at least an acknowleogment of Its receipt.
I do not consider the II local lmorlsoumeat of an
American citizen of sutllclent Importance to reply
to the letter. Under these circumstances, psrbaos,
you might feel neglected but I have become so
accuHloired to tbe neglect of our adopted oitlsens. I
look for Hu e atsistauce from my Uoveramont, be
cause I bappeu to be native-born (my grandfather,
the Rev. George Pickering, halllag from yourowa
btateand city). I aui not surprised, since au Ameri
can patsport has become the by-word of nations,
that you pay no attention to the Important documents
tent jou two weeks ago, Many ot my letters to and
from are blr James Grahauilzed In tbe pol ollice, but
I cannot ihlnk tbe British Government would stop a
letter from an Amerloau citizen to bis Ambassador.
I should, however, be grallllea to hear that It reached

The Surrntt Trial.
WagHweroH, Sept. 24 The Criminal Court
hiving jesterdaT sastalnedtbe demurrer of the
proiecntlon to the special plea of the defense,
Mr. Merrick to-day set up In the bar of Judg
ment the act ofl799, the statute of limitations,
claiming that the indictment against Borratt
was not found within two years from the trial
of the commission of the alleged offense, and
hence tho prisoner was entitled to a final dis
cbarge. After argument on both sides, Jadg Wylle
sa'.d the tnalctment contained Ore several
counts, charging that the offense was committed
on the 6th or March, 1866, and on other days
Intervening between that time and the 16th of
April ot the same year. Toe deteadant entered
a pka of not pullty generally, some day lu
June last, and that plea remained on record
until the meeting of this Court at Its ndiourned
term reveral dys ago, when be asked and ob
tained permission to withdraw the plea of not
guilty, and tiled a special plea to enablo bim to
plead tbe benefit of the proclamation of pardon
and amnesty. The Court considering thnt he
never before had an opportuuitf to plead pir
pon under that proclamation, gave him permit
sion to withdraw tbe plea of not guilty, and the
next day to plead a special plea that the Am
nesty Proclamation was applicable to bis esse.
Tbe Government, through Its representative,
demurred to this plea.
The demurrer Is a general demurrer for sub
stantial defects in the plea, and not tor Infor
mality. For two days there was an atgnment
on the Iesuc, and yesterday the Court intimated
its oplnlt n on the question. That intimation
was tbat tbe Court would sustain the demarrer,
tbe plea being bad, and the proclamation not
applicable to the offense charged.
Tbis morning the counsel lor the defense Inti
mated tbat there was still another ground which
tbe Court should take Into consideration in sup
port of the plea. That was thnt the offense
cbsrged in tbe Indictment was committed more
than two years before the indictment was found.
Tbe act of Congress approved April 30, 1799,
prov des as follows:
"No perron or persons shall be prosecnted, tried, or
pnnlrhtd fcrtresson oro'her caudal offense, wilful
murder orlorgxry exceptor!, unless the lndicimnut
lor the same shall be round by a Graud Jurv within
three jears next alter the tressn t capital oflense
alnrtaald shall be done or commuted! nor shall
any person be prosecuted, held, or punished for any
ctteuse not espltal, nor for any fine or forfeiture
under any penal s atute, unless tbe Indictment or
Information for the same shall he fo'ind or Instituted
Itbln two j ears from the time of commuting the
orlei s or incurring the fine or forfeiture stores d
provided, tat nothing therein contained shall extenl

Special Detpatoh to The Evening Telegraph,
Olsnstead the Defaulter.
Washington, Sept. 24. It is said that the
Postmaster-General Is now foil Informed ol the
whereabouts of Olmstead, the defaulter, and
that he will soon be arretted and brought to this
city. Olmstead's friends propose to fix the
natter np, providing the Government will go

Drawbacks on Imports.
Secretary McCulloch has revoked the order
Issued some time ago abolishing tbe office of
Superintendent of drawbacks on imports. The
order was to take effect on the first of October,
but tbe Secretary has extended the time until
tbe first of January.
Tbe Trial of Surratt.
ontinued from our TMrdEdilion.
Judge Wy lie said the language of this statute
is clear and Btronir. It was not possible to mis
understand It. The indictment was not found
until more than two years after the alleged
ofleuee was committed. Ii contained no affirma
tion that during the intervening period the
defendant bad fled from Justice. This ts a fatal
objection to tbe profecutlon, unless we find it
was uecesf ary by the rules of law for defendant
10 pieaa ins Denem ot tbe statute by special
plea. After quoting legal authorities, he
bald he felt constrained in this case, with
tne whole record before Dim, to say that judg
ment must be Riven for the defendant.
air. II er iick atked that iudtrment be entered
and the prisoner discharged. District Attorney
Carrington ahked, as this was a very important
question of law, tbat it be certified to tbe court
"in baric." He supposed a new indictment
couid oe iouna at toe next term of tbe court.
Judge Wjlie replied that he was not in the
habit of certitvine to another couit. He decided
lor himself with the questions belore him. If
me gentleman wanted to go lucre he could do
to ' n appeal.
Tbe District Attorney asked whether on a
question of law in criminal prosecutions he hal
not tne iipnt 01 appeal.
Judge VVylie replied that that was for the
gentleman to determine.
Ur. Merrick, in renlv to a Question, was In.
formed bv the Court tbat the urisoner was dis
charged. Surratt. who was iu the court-room.
was then congratulated by his friends, aud
aiterwarui reurea.
District Attorney Carrington said he nro
posed, if necesary, to prepaie another indict
ment to meet the views of the court.
Judee tV'ylie said tbe District Attornev could
have Sarratt rearrested on a charge when the
grand jury shall again sit. On the face 01' tbe
record it apoeared that the alleged crime was
committed more than two years ago. If so. he
could not be prosecuted. No man could be de
prived of lite or nbeity under a statute like
that, and the court had no right to hold Surratt
to bail.
Libtnct Attorney Carrington said he did not
wnn to argue against tne decision, but as the
subject was of great practical importance, he
wanted to any
Judge wjiie nere unerrupiea tne gentleman
by remarking tbat he bad announced his
opinion, aud therelore it was not necessary for
the gentleman to say anything more.
