Kc\. Loyal L. W irt's Defense.
\- previously announced. 1 lie Kev. Mr
\\ iii delivered ;i sermon al the I'onp'e
national church last Sunday evening'
diirinu the course of' which, lit' replied
lot he frit if isius t hat some of t he mem
hereof the church iiid iilur*k?l in apt ins t
him. His remarks upon this part of the
discourse were clothed in diplomatic
laupiaue. in a vein that indicated that
t lie speaker felt deeply wronged Iiy a
few of the )members who should have
I teen loyal to him. That he had made
some mistakes, he did not deny, but
claimed that theelmreh members are
by duty IhMind to condone slight errors
and give him credit for purity of motive.
To extend tohim this much charity, was
in his case a christian duty. His invo
cation.- were lull of fervor and he did
not forget to pray for those whom he
thought had so thoughtlessly done
him a great wrong. We think Pro. Wirt
made a very good defense and that the
??*rmou of last Sunday night will bring
forth good fruit.

Tlu? new Juneau court house is to U?
linished by the tirst of next .May. The
government appropriated s|t>.chh> for
the building and s'o.(KK) for a tire proof
vault, which amount ought to put up a
decent buildinc. Public buildings are
generally constructed under the super
vision of the supervising arcliitect at
Washington, and when such is the case,
it takes all the way from live to forty
years to secure the construction and
completion of most any kind of a
structure, but au exception is made in
t lie Juneau court house and its con
struction is placed in charge of the At
torney (ieneral of the Cnited States.
