?PI7?TT "Y THE MORNING PRESS.
The Union urges Mr Ball's committee to
extend its investigations into the transactions
of the Treasury Department under the last
Administration, if its purpose be really to
ferret out public abases, intimating that it will
thus fird enough to make it quite sick of its
job in hand.
The Jntel/igenetr deplores the growing sec
tional animosity, and quotes the prophetic and
persuasive words of Webster against that fell

The Trial of P. T. Herbert.?The readers
of the Star will boar witness to the scrupulous
care with which we have endeavored to steer
this journal clear of a course upon the subject
of the#h< micide of Keating, by Herbert, that
might by any chance serve to defeat a fair
tr.alof the accused. We have pursued that
course under a deep sense of our responsibility
as the conductor of a public journal penetrat
ing into almost every household in the District
of Columbia and for many miles around, as
well as into thousands afar off accustomed to
regard its statements of occurrences in Wash
ington as being, except in the few instances in
which we make corrections, positively and un
Yet we also feel, as we should, the respon
sibility resting upon the Star as one of the
guardians of the true interests of this commu
nity, which are involved in nothing more cer
tainly than in the rigidness with which both
law and justice are administered without fear
or favor, by the courts of the District of Colum
bia We had hoped that we should have felt
at Ij^erty to abstain from making a single edi
toria! comment upon this trial during its pro
gress; but the labors of those who are now
seeking to vindicate the accused in many
ways, have imposed on us the disagreeable
du y of expressing our views?not upon the
quta:ionof the gailt or innocence of P. T
Herbert?but on collateral subjects bearing on
A counsel for the defence, in opening yes
terday, commented with great severity upon
the c urse cf the press with reference to the
afTiir, including, in plain terms, the press of
this city, whose publications concerning it
have, as far as we have seen, been marked with
e xupukus forbearance, under the cir.-um
starces. To the press he attributed the great
excitement existing here with reference to the
mutter. It strikes us that features connected
witb the tri-1 are more fairly chargable with
h v eg originated the more than usuul itter
e. I it that has been manife-ted by the Di?
These are firs', the manifest difference
made ry the officers of the law in the treat
ment of the accused when first arrested, and
that of ether prisoners he Id under charges of
the same grade. Next, the extraordinary ar
ray of "distinguished" influence in the court
rooms during the original examination and
the subsequent trial, calculated, if not de
signed, to deftat the return of a verdict with
out fear or favor. Next, again, the course
which the court conceived to be its duty to
pursue throughout the trial, ending in the in
structions given to the jury, which have al
ready been severely commented upon by the
press of the country, and which have been
veiy generally disapproved by the legal pro
fession, as invclving ideas of the law by no
meats likely to render human life more safe
thun heretofore in this community And
next, a^ain, the fact that these instructions
went to the jury without a protest from the
prosecution A scrupulous determination to
abstain from doing au^ht that can possibly
improperly influence the result of the trial
compels us to say no more of the?e instruc
tions at this time.
Again : Circumstances connected with the
?election of the jury now trying the case are
far more calculated than any possible com
ments cf the press to excite the mind of this
public with reference to the trial. Eleven of
the jurors are understood to be members of
the Know Nothing party Two of them de
clared, on being questioned by the Court,
that they had foimed opinion* as to the
guilt or innocence of the accused and had
eipressed those opinions; while one cf
t-cm proclaimed that at that moment hia
expressed opinion was retained ; which means
if meaning i-ny thing, that his mind was bi
assed on the case. One of the jurors is un
derstood to have been a visitor of the accused
in prison and an active sympathiser with him
He submit that all these things legitimately
account for the extraordinary manner in which
public attention is fixed on this trial, without
seeking for other reasons to that end.
Again : friends of the accused have used
some of the newspapers of Washington in his
behalf. Even tc-day we find in the Onion
an earnest appeal, evidently for his acquittal,
to much of which we do not feel at liberty to
allude in detail, because it touches points
which we cannot discus* without justly aub
jecting ourself to the charge of having undu
ly influenced the current trial There i> a
statement in that eommunicatlon, however,
which it is due to this public that we should
notice. It is as follows :
"If Mr. Doubois had consented to appear
in court he could only have corroborate^^
testimony for the defence. This ffcntl?m?n

Mtatemmt, with which bis name hss bee^ in
any manner connected Delicacy on the part
5*' fronds has prevented the
publication of Mr. Dubois' statement durine
the pendency of the trial; but at the proper
time it will be made public."
Of this we have to say that, without pre
tending to dispute the accuracy of its repre
sentation of what M Dubois told the gentle
man named above, of which we know nothing
except what the writer states, we are very
sure that bis original representations of the
? fi ir t gentlemen of Washington do not war
rant the conclusion with reference to what Ma
testimony would be if appearing on the wit
ness stand, to which the writer in *be Union
has arrived I
Knowing well that a hue and cry will b?
raised against ns for thus discussing this af
fair, we hare to say to the public that our
sense of duty to th? cause of law and justice
in our midst, and that only, has been our guide
throughout it. ?
The Mockery ?Some days since we took
occasion to expose the Know Nothing charac
ter of the late bogus Old Line Whig State Con
vention held at Baltimore, Md., whereupon
some Know Nothing correspondent of our tal
ented, truthful and ingenuous neighbor abused
us and epithetised us roundly, for misrepre
senting that precious gathering Feeling very
sure that rome bona fide Old Line Whig of
Maryland would sooner or later lift the flimsy
veil of false pretences with which the Know
Nothings were endeavoring to cover up thair
tracks in the management of that affair, we
preferred not to notice our gentle and amiable
neighbor's correspondent at that time. The
lion. Senator Samuel II Berry of Upper Marl
boro, who was elected a delegate from Prince
Ueorga to that Convention, appeared on the
day before yesterday in the Planter's Advo
cate over hia own name, and thoroughly ex
poses the mendacity, impudence and hum
buggery of the effort to create the impression
that it proved to be aught but a Know Noth
ing expedient to deceive the bona fiie Whigs
ttf the State into the support of Fillmore and
the principles of Know Nothingism. We there
fore proceed to quote him as a sufficient reply
to the Know Nothing who assailed us through
the columns of our immaculate and even-tem
pered neighbor. Thus; describing the success
ful efforts of the Know Nothings to pack the
jounty meeting* selecting delegates, he says :
In many, indeed in most of these, it appear
ed that there were present persons notoriously
identified with this new party, in such num
bers as in many instances to control the ac
tion of the meeting, as a consequence of which
many delegations were sent, either instructed
to endorse a particular candidate, or else
composed of persons previously pledged to bis
support. The irregularity of which proceed
ing must have been apnarent to all real
Whigs, upon two considerations; for, firstly,
memners or adherents of other parties had no
right to control the*e meetings, and, second
ly. the sending for men already pledged or
instructed for a particular ticket, and resolved
it all hazard to have that ticket endorsed,
defeated the primary and original object of
the whole movement, wh:ch, as I have stated,
wad for the purpjso of free and unbiased con
sultation aa to the course proper for Whigs to
" Upon arriving in Baltimore it was evident
that these irregular proceedings had been
carried to such an extent, as totally to aet at
defiance the very object of the Convention, it
being clear that the adherents of the '? Amer
ican' party and the supporters of its nomina
tion had secured the entire control. Believing,
therefore that the meeting would not he prop
erly a Whig meeting, believing that it would
iepart from the principles already laid down
by the first meeting, (April 29th.) and that its
action would. consequently, bo an entire do
sertion and betrayal of the Old Line Whirrs of
the S ate, I declined to attend its sittings.
And it is because these fears have been con
firmed by its action, that I refuse to endorse,
in any purticular, what it has seen fit to do.
Many of the counties were not represented at
all Mmy had but oue delegate present, and
not a lew even of the delegations that were
present were composed of persons who cared
not a fig for Whig principles in comparison
with the aforesaid " American" dogmas they
bad seen fit to adopt.
"I oppose its action, therefore, in the first
place, because it was properly constituted, but
was controlled l>y the members or adherents
of another party to secure their own onds. I
c-ppose it, in the second place, because of the
resolutions it adopted, and its endorsement of
Mr Fillmore. The resolutions, by their im
plied coincidence with Mr. Fillmore a present
position, fly directly in the face of the position
taken by the preceding meeting of the 2V?th of
April, and by their studied evasion of the ex
siting question ol the day. their denunciation
if the democratic party as sectional, because
of its efforts on behalf of southern rights, and
their failure to endorse the Kansas bill, for
which the South now contends, they utterly
tail to meet the views of southern Whigs upon
these questions "
The Contested Election Case.?The Repub
lican managers in the House have decreed
that the Hon. Mr. Allen, of Illinois shall be
ousted from his seat as a representative in
Congress, and that one of their own party
sha.l take his place. The reason for this de
termination is to be fjund in the fact that by
ejecting such a change, tho vote of Illinois
will be secured for Fremont in case the Presi
dential election goes to the House. Under
such ciroumstauces, a very slim pretence of
illegality in the election of Mr. Allen, is suffi
cient as tho ba*is on which to found the pro
ceedings through which they are striving to
Wuik ??ut their end. So far as the question of
right is concerned, one might as well whistle
psalms to dead horses as argue it to them in
their present strait concerning the next Presi
dency. If this determination was theirs only?
the evil would be slight in its effects. But
Mr. Fillmore's northern friends, or at least
enough of them to secure the triumph of their
plot?for it is neither more nor less than u
plot?have determined to aid theia
V\ hile the Southern Know Nothing leaders
and newspapers are tickling the imagination
of their followers with Mr Fillmore's Albauy
and Rochester speeches, hie northern guard
in the House are plotting with the Republi
cans a scheme like this, to, if possible, insuro
the election of Fremont over Buchanan.
\ erily, the Know Nothing leaders must re
gard the Know Nothing masses in Maryland.
Louisiana, and Kentucky, as not only the
most stupid of the stupid, but as being utterly
lost to all sense of self-respect and self-preser
vation. Nought but such an impression con
cerning them can superinduce the belief that
they will continue to strengthen the bauds of
Mr Fillmore's northern fuglemen here, for
working out the triumph of such coalition for
Mr Burwell.?Mr. Wm.M. Burwell, late
editor of the Washington Organ, has resigned
his seat in the Virginia Legislature, because
he oannot longer act with the Know Nothing
party against the election of Buchanan and
Breckinridge His published letter of resig
nation is able and interesting, and shows that
those in the South who under any pretence
seek to draw the South from the support of
Buehanan and Breckinridge, are pursueing a
course that must lead, if sucoessfal, to thede
stmction of the rights and interests of their
section of the confederacy. We shall to uxor
r jw endeavor to find rpaoe wherein to refer
more at length to this able latter.
The Way of All (Know Nothing) Fl#?h -
The proeeedingA of the bogus Old Line Whig
State convention, reoently in session at Rich
Bond, \ a , were as amusing as those of its
late counterpart in Baltimore, and identical
in tenor ; in other words, it was composed al
most entirely of persons who, while steadily
vot.ng and *pjutin* Know Nvnhingua, for
years past, do not heaitate to admit t*?M they
retain their former Whig sentiment* on all
the old question?^'Vsue.
A resolution pWgtfcs the members to be
Whigs and not KmNTNothings, was very an
ceremoniously voted down, or hannifuggted
out of the way, it will be perceived from the
accounts of their proceedings now beiog pub
lished in naarlj all the newspapers The onlj
solution of this aotion is, that, otherwise, the
entire Know Nothingism of the gathering
would hare been exposed to the gaie of those
whose votes are designed to be entrapped by
the act of the Know Nothing leaders in stook
ing the delegations to these so-called Old Line
The Million to Mexico ?We are satisfied
that the paragraph being published, sajing
that John Forsytb, E*q., of Mobile, Alabama,
haa been nominated to the Senate to be the
American Minister to Mexico, vice Minister
Gadsden, resigned, is prematura. Yet we be
lieve that Mr F. bids fair to be selected for
that so important position. We are very sure
that no better or more acceptable appoint
ment could be made. Mr. Forsyth is a gen
tleman of high character and rare abilities,
possessing much of that perspicacity, readi
ness and acuteness of. intellect for which his
father the late John Forsyth of Georgia, was
so distinguished when In the public service

the long senatorial controversy over the action
of the late Naval retiring board.

Mr. J Tobias: Dear Sir?1 am happy to sat

ity in tbe visual range of m, eyes, I have be etc
found great difficulty In getting glastes of the
proper focal distance It affords rne pleasure t

culty has been happily obviated so that the gJass< s
you furnished me are dec dedly the best adapteo

From natu-al defects and tbe unequal range of

several years. I bave tried different optician*
without obtaining glasses perfectly fitted to my
eyes I our months since Mr Tobias m^de two
pairs especially lor me, which I have Kund tc
serve me perfectly. Bv the use of his optometer
he la enab ed to adapt Glasses minutely to the eye.
I most cherifu ly recommend Mr Tobias to al
