BIB OPT31DE FOR INTERESTING TELE
ORAPHIO AND OTHER MATTER.
FROM CITY POINT.
The mail steamer Daniel Webster, Captain
Charles I?eerinjr, arrived here this morning
at 10 o'clock, from City Point. The Webster
was compelled to anchor for an hour or two
down river this morning, the fog being so thick
that it was Impossible for her to see hor way
through The Webster brought no news from
the front, all being quiet there up to the time
she left yesterday morning.
TELEGKAPHiC NEWS.
THE PIRATE TALLAHASSEE.
Phi lathi, phi a, Nov. 1 ?The report of the
Pirate Tallahassee being off Delaware Hay,
and of having destroyed several vessels at
anchor, came through pilots, but is not gener
ally believed.
Persons who left Lewes, Delaware, yester
day morniuj, say that there can be no truth in
the reported robbery ot that town.
Inquiries are now being made of the nearest
telegraph stations.
[8BCONT> t>ISrAT( 11.]
Philadelphia, Nov. 4.?Passengers lrom
Cape May, who armed this morning, report
that nothing was known there ahout the Talla
hassee being at the breakwater.
Infinite confirmation will probably be re
ceived by the New York boat, due at one
o'clock.
[THIBP DISPATCH.]
PniLADBLPi-lA, Nov. 4.?The Evening Jiul
Iftin says: Gloucester Smith, Engineer of the
Light House district, who left Lewes at B
o'clock yesterday morning, states that at that
time there bad been no report there of the
Pirate Tallahassee being at the Breakwater,
which is In 6ight from Lewes.
He totally discredits the rumor. Moreover,
the United States gunboat Sassacus, donble
ender. was In Lewes harbor, having arrived
there on Wednesday night. If any pirate had
been in the neighborhood she would have been
after her at once.
The whole story is undoubtedly a canard.

Financial.?Fromlastevening's New York
Post:
The loan market is moderately active at ?
per cent. There is, however, abundance of
capital seeking temporary investment, and the
brokers are easily supplied. Commercial bills
pass slowly, at t-a9 for first-class, and at lual2
for lower grades.
The report is current that the Treasury De
partment is about to withdraw their deposits
now in the national banks It is expected by
seme that this course will lead to a stringency
m the loan marset and cause a fall in gold and
stocks
Others think that as throughout the country
the supply ot capital is in excess of the de
mands ot business, the balance owing to the
Government by the national banks can be paid
eff without any derangement of their ordinary
business.
Tne .-tock market opened dull, became heavy,
atterwards recovering, and closing with an
upward tendency.
The Commercial Advertiser says:
/ ry U(f>iIs Auctions? Everybody is holding
oft till atterelection.andbusinessattheauction
houses has become nominal. Messrs. Haggerty .
A Co. had a sale of ribbons and millinery sroods, j
the importation of Messrs. Solellac Freres. I
The of ering. as usual with the importations of |
this firm, was very fine, and notwithstanding !
tte general dullness in the market, prices were i
ao.ysr.ced slightly over former sales, and most
cf tte goods were duplicated. Messrs. Wil
merding, Hcguet ic Co. had a special sale of
dress goods. An assorted lot of scarfs, neck
ties, lac* veils, and children's hose, offered at
the evening of the sale, realized good pn?es,
and in most instances were duplicated. The
bivldn g for the dress goods, however, was very
moderate, and prices ruled about the same as
(l -ring 'h- week.
'The Chicago Tribune states that, in a
f-peech at Monmouth, Illinois, a few days ago,
Idr Valiatdiicham interpreted the meaning of
the sei ond resolution of the Chicago platlorm,
c f v-hicfc he was the author. He said the
Democracy were in favor of a reconstruction
cf the I'nion on the basis of state rights, and
her.ee they excluded from the platform the
idea ot a restoration of the Union on the "basis
oi the Federal Union of the States,'' and in
serted in lieu thereol, the 1 basis of the Federal
JStates." The difference of phrase ot course
embraced a difference of idea, which the
speaker explained as follows: - We are op
posed to centralization ol power in one govern
ment. extending from the Atlantic to the Paci
fic, which would be one of the worst des
potism* cn earth."
ftTTbe St. Louis Union of Saturday last,
states that it was currently reported In the city
jesterday that General Kosecrans had been
ordered to r?port at Washington, to be assigned
to a command in the Army of the Potomac.
The rumor mentioned no one as his successor
in command of this department. General
Pieasanton would naturally succeed him, un- I
til eome other commander was appointed. The
name ot General Banks is mentioned in wnll
intormed circ les as the probable commander j
of the department
ar The Albany E vening Journal has reason '
to believe tha' a box with over two hundred of j
the Donohue furged vctes reached the city last I
week. The Journal states that the name of
the party who received it is known, and he and !
those who received the ti kets wili be |

Trial of Cel. Samuel North and others Re
sumed.
The Military Commission, of which Major
General Doubleday. U. S. V., is president, met
this morning at their rooms, on F street, be
tween 13th and llth sts., at lo o'clock Presi
dent. Maj. Gen. Abner Doubleday. U. S. V.;
Brig Gen. Francis Fessenden. U. S. V.; Col. R.
Butler Price. 2d Pa cav.; Lieut. Col. T A.
Barker, 11th N. H.: Capt. ML. H. Kllis lT.jti N.
Y. V.; Capt J H. Piatt. A. D. C.; Col. J. A.
Foster, lT5th N. Y. V., Judge Advocate.
Messrs. Jas. O. Clephane and H. G. Hayes,
official reporters, were present.
The case of Col. Samuel North. Levi Cohen ,
N. M. Jones. Reeves, and Schotield,
charged with fraud upon the New York
soldiers vote, was resumed. Messrs. R. H Oil
let and John 1). McPherson appeared as
counsel for the defendants.
On the opening ?f the Court?
Mr. Glllet, counsel for the accused, said On
yesterday it was suggested by the J udge Ad \ o
s cate that there was something in what is known
by the bar as the Dorr case which had a bear
ing in this case. My familiarity with that case,
from the day of its argument and its decision
! to the present time, enables me to say that it
has no applicability, t.nd that there is nothing
? in it having any bearing whatever on any of
the matters legitimately before this tribunal.
That was a case of an entirely different charac
ter In every respect. Tnat grew out of a cou
troversy in the State of Rhode Island in rela
tion to a Constitution, and under which Con
stitution the people of Rhode Island lived.
1 he Supreme Court decided, and with very
great propriety, that it was not Its province to
determine the political questions arising in
that State as to which was the State govern
ment. If that case had presented, as a matter
of fact, the issnes between the two constitu
tions?which was the one under which the
people of that State lived?it would have been
a question of fact to be tried by a jury, and
could not be determined as a question of law
by the court. And therefore the court would
not determine that question as a question of
law, but would take the political action of the
Federal Government as indicating which was
the true government. Ilence the decision was
in accordance with the action ot President Ty
ler, that the old government was th<* tru> gov -
ernment. As to anything in relation to the
question of the suspension of the Constitution
of the United States, or anything of that kind,
it is not in the case.
The second case cited by the J udge Advocate
was that of Yallandigham. Hew that can have
any bearing on this case is incomprehensible to
me. In the State of Ohio, the Major General in
command had issued a military order forbid
ding certain things to be done in that State, and
among them the commission of acts that should
weaken the military power, and tend to dimin
ish the ability of the Government to wield, to
combine, and to use that power in crushing Ha
rebell ion. That order, according to the under
standing of the officer issuing it, was, for the
time being, and for the place, a law of the land.
That order was violated, as it was held, by
Mr. Vallandlgham. He was said to have, in
his discussions, used language and enforced
thoughts tending to prevent the easy and
appropriate combination of the military
power in Ohio, and the wielding of it
against the enemies. That was charged against
him. He was brought beiore a tribunal, tried,
convicted and sentenced. The propriety of all
these things has nothing to do with the present
case. His friends were not satisfied with the
decision, and made an application for a cer
tiorari.
The J udge Advocate.?For a writ ol habeas
corpus.
Mr. Gillet.?That was first. On such appli
cation the merits of the case were not drawn
in question; and when the District Judge de
cided that he had no authority to issu^ that
process there was theendol his legitimate func
tions.
Whatever he may have said in opinion be
yond that was not a judicial decision, and can
not be quoted as authority, although it may be
quoted as a reasonable argument. That case
came to the Supreme Court, on application for
a certiorari, to bring the whole case before that
Court for review. The report of it is not yet
published, although copies can be had at the
clerk's office. The Supreme Court said, and
with very great propriety, "We are only an
appellate tribunal, reviewing the judg
ment cf courts indicated in the statute
by way of review, and this is not
among the class of cases which we have a right
to review. Therefore we will not issue a certio
rari for The purpose of bringing it before us.
We have nothing to do with the merits ot the
case. We only say that we have no jurisdiction
to grant what you, Mr. Pugh. ask shall b?- done
in the case." The Court further said that
"these military tribunals, in their proceedings,
are not subject to be re\ lewed by the civil
courts: for they are not so organized, and heir
, proceedings cannot come before thecivil courts,
i Their road to a finality is to the head of the
! Executive Government. We have nothing to
do with it " Now, there certainly is a fair and
final disposition of this matter, showing that it
has no application whatever to the present
case.
I hope my colleague and myself will be able,
throughout the discussion of this case, so to
present it, so to consider and argue it, that no
exception can be taken to the course <.f it,
either by the tribunal which is to try the cases
or by the public. The great diilieulty on the
present occasion is this The public mind is m
that feverish and excited state that aimost
everybody thinks it is necessary to go outside
of the issues, and to be dealing; blows which are
supposed to have some effect on oth>'r snbtect
matters God forbid that that should ever oc
cur before a tribunal which has charge ofth"
liberties, lives, and properties of men. I trust
that it will not be the misfortune, through ex
citement or otherwise, of the counsel employed
in this defense to go outside in relation to any
thing. Many suggestions may be made, some
have befii made, which, before other tribunals
and in other places where discussion ol such
questions Is proper, might be fairly issues, and
might be discussed.
These issues have a significance before
another tribunal, and not here, and they will
not be presented. When 1 question one ot the
leading propositions ot my learned adversary
1 do it, not with reference to the outside trial
ot these issues, and not expecting that this tri
bunal will consider that the case depends upon
them. That suggestion was this: -That our
Constitution was a constitution of peace.
Thank God it is. 1 trust there is not a man ri
this room who would not hazard his all, in
cluding his life, to sustain that Constitution us
one ot peace. On the question of whether any
of its provisions are inoperative during the
war 1 shall not enter into a discussion, and
merely say that 1 do not assent to that propo
sition. But 1 decline to discuss it. because it
has no applicability to this case. The extent
of the suspension of anyth'ng has nothing to
do with the issues now before us.
The Judge Advocate assured the court that
it was the duty of the United States to protect
the soldiers from frauds ot electioneering
agents, and to protect them in all their rights,
it is right that the Government should pro
tect the soldier in all his rights, so far as those
rights spring from his relation to tne Govern
ment a*, a soldier. Wh^n the soldier and the
Oovernment enter into the contract by whish
he serves, it is understood that the Govern
ment will protect the soldier ill his rights, so
;?!) :is they relate to the discharge of his duty
as a soldier. And I trust that duty will al
ways he performed by the (Government. That
is not this question. The soldier does not vote
by wrtue of his relations and standing as a
soldier. It is another relation, one connected
with anotl:er Government; one springing out
ot the local constitutions ot the States that give
him the right It is a citizen right, not a soldier
right.
And when his rights as a citizen of a State,
rich's resulting from the constitution of the
State, are assailed, then those executing that
constitution are called upon to protect those
rights. The United States have no authority,
in war or in peace, none under any law, written
or oral, to attempt to supervise and control
these rights. The United States pass la ws to
guard the soldier from the destruction of the
tippling shop. They pass laws to prevent their
being led into temptation to sell their uuitorms.
their arms and ammunition. A variety of laws
are patted, and these should be enforced. I
trust they are and ever will b* enforced. But.
where tlie State of New York, as a sovereign
political community, passes a law in regard to
these rights, does it pass oue which confers a
right that the General Government has anr
control over ! I>oes it not pas* it with refer
ence to the political rights arisin t under State
institutions? Most clearly.
Now, in relation to a thousand things, a sol
dier ma\ have his right* a*e?ted, and there
may be remedies in the State? for the aggres
sion on his rights. B?t, will It heeaid that the
Federal Government jand. if w*at
clause of the Constitution ?) has a rtfht to etep
in and enforce these rights?and that by mili
tary power1 The soldier has a n*ht to matt**
a will, like every other citizpn. Suppose some
scoundrel imposes on that soldier ami getehim
to sign a will entirely different from what he
really in tend sd ?suppose he is made to disin
herit his own i-sne and to devise his properly
to one wholly unworthy is it not a wrong on
his right*, a violation of them And can the
Federal Government, in consequent of
that, punish, under the military power
, of the I'nited States. the man who
did it, and who ought to be punished :
Suppose he is induced by chicanery, to marry,
I which he would not do under ordinary circum
! stances, is there not a wrong intlicted on him,
which might last him through life, might lead
him to degradation and shame ? Will the Fed
eral Government step in and attempt to punish
th? man who occasioned it! Wheie is the
clause in the Constitution an horizmg r '
Where is the statute of the United Stites au
thorizing it ? Who in this broad land has ever
supposed that the Federal Government was in
stituted for the purpose of attending to the
minutias of affairs of the citizens ol the differ
ent States !
Counsel elaborated on these points, ami had
read by bis associate, Mr. Mcpherson, author
ities m support of his views In conclusion
he said:
It may l?e that I am too earnest in this. I
have rot designed to be too earnest. Rot 1 can
not help feeling, as a lover of my country, as
j one dt6iriug the success of our institution- and
the triumph of our armies, of ore who is ready
to sacrifice bis nil for the restoration ol the
old flag, and to have it wave over the whole
Union,?1 canr.ot but feel a zeal and earnest
ness in any rase where 1 suppose that the
Course indicated by my adversary is snre to
produce wrong and evil, instead of good ami
' effectual consequences in tavor of the coun try
The Judge Advocate replied.
He said: May it please the Commission I
have not had time to reduce what 1 want to
say into as little space as I should desirv. and
as'l should have done if I had bad a little more
time to condense the remarks which 1 mteud to
make in regard to the question of jurisdiction.
As I remembered it, and as it was reported in
this morning's paper, I supposed it to have been
gravely argued before this commission that
there was no jurisdiction in a military tribunal
except that which had been given by positive
statute, or which, by the very words of, If not
the inference from, the Constitution, can he
shown to exist. Hut If I understood the coun
sel correctly to-day, he has practically aban
doned the position of yesterday,and now hold
that there are a great many crimes over which
the court may have jurisdiction of parties wfco
are not in the nav al or military service of the
United States. Hut he would have you con
fine them, as well as 1 can understand his ar
gument, to cases in the immediate front of the
army, when before the enemy.
Before going into the general question I will
simply allude to what he has stated in regard
to the case of Yallandigham. The Circuit
Oouit of the United States for the Southern
Circuit of Ohio refused to grant the wit of ha
beas corpns which was applied for, for two
reasons. Either would have been sufficient:
either was suflicient. The law was probably
well settled in both. But the Court chose to
give two reasons?the first, that it would not
exercise an improper use of its jurisdiction: and,
second, that that was not the proper tribunal
before which to bring the case on a supposed
appeal The Conn chose to give both reasons.
And this Commission has no right to siy that
one reason is not just as elaborate and )ust is
roach the opinion of the Court a? the other.
Kither one was sufficient. The Supreme
Court of the United States practically de
cided. as my friend has stated. (and which, in
my opinion, affirms the power of the court,)
that it had no appellate power in itself?that
the President was the last resort, the last court
of appeals What is this bat saying that the
war power claimed does reside in the Presi
dent of the T'mted States ' What is it but af
firming the whole ot my argument! If the
President of the United States is the court of
la^t resort, why is It so I By virtue ot his war
power. By virtue ol his doing as he pleases,
in his scnnd discretion, in time of war.
Counsel declines to discuss the question of
thesuspension ot certain articles of the constitu
tion as no; being relative to this question, and
yet, frcm beginning to end, he recurs to them
as bearing on the case. I shall therefore give
a lew reasons why. in my mind, this court bas
jurisdiction, under the Constitution of the T'ni
ted States, and why the jurisdiction claimed by
me lor this court is strictly in accordance with
the Constitution, carrying out its provisions.
The Judge Advocate argued ably and elab
orately the law of the case. and concluded as
follows
We du not know, nori- it anvof our business,
whether the Suite ot New Yoik is going t>
assume the powers of Congress, and legislate
against crimes committed outside of the State.
As yet it has net done so. But whether it had
or not, and whether, if if attempted to legislate
fi r all Europe, it would have that power, i- not
the subject of discussion. The point is this:
we have a great arm v in the field. < tur sol
diers are now in the presence of the enemy.
The Government has promised to protect those
soldiers in their rights
A man in the District of Columbia, which is
held to be "in the field," has attempted to per
petrate a stupendous fraud upon them; and,
v. ith unblushing effrontery, we are inet iu the
very threshold of the case with the plea that
this is not a military offence, hut merely an
offence against the state of New York. If it
he not a military offence, if it be not an offence
against the soldier as a soldier, what is it !
And if it he an offence against the soldier, why
is it not a military offence '
The court was cleared for deliberation, and,
' n the doors being reopened, it was announced
t.tat the plea against the jurisdiction of the
cs/urt was overruled.
The Judge Advocate then moved that judg
ment should be pronounced upon the accused,
en the ground that the plea against the juris
diction was in the nature of a demurrer, and
that the demurrer having beeen overruled, the
prisoners had no right to plead further?the
demurrer being an admis-ion of the charge.
Mr. Gillett argued against the motion.
The court was cleared for deliberation, and
! oa the doors being reopened it was announced
I that the motion wa^ denied.
1 he accused were then called upon to plead,
sr.d they severally pleaded "not guilty" to tho
charge and specifications.
Mr. McPherson demanded a separate trial
lor each of the accused.
The Judge Advocate objected, and argued
u^amst the assumed right
The court was cleared for deliberation, and
alter the doors were reopened, it was an
nounced that the claim for a separate trial was
not sustained.
Mr. McPhersor. then called upon th? Judge
Advocate to specify against which of the nris
'iiers he proceeded sis principals, and against
which as accessories.
Tlie Judge Advocate resisted the claim, and
the conrt sustained him in his position.
And then, to enable the counsel to > outer with
ttfcir clients and procure their witnt" es. the
court took a recess nil i p. m.
