J$WL. L. IK A BMW Ghabactbb.?Jivery
man, woman and child in the city knows
poor old Sweitzer, commonly called "Lutn
berlege." He lost his reason years ago,
and has spent several years of his life wan
dering np and down the streets of the city |
subsisting upon the charity of onr citizens.
He is said to be the wreck of a once pros
perous and intelligent man. Now he is
never so happy as when gathering old sticks
of wood, rags and all sorts of rnbbish with
which he overloads himself and hobbles
through the streets nntil his attention be
ing diverted he forgets his bnrthen and
gathers another. The boys frequently rig
him up io fantastic costumes, pnt feathers
in his bat, paint his face and decorate bis
ragged clothing with bright colors. He is
always delighted with these attentions and
never tires admiring himself. Recently he
is being employed more profitably than
heretofore. We saw bim yesterdey plod
ding through the rain barefooted and al
most naked. Upon his breast there waB a
handbill advertising a farm for sale, and
upon his back he carried a yellow adver
tisement proclaiming the virtnes of some
body's Golden Bitters. Some enterprising
person who appears to have some interest
in a Rat Exterminator bad also patronized
the old man, and his left foot pointed out
the place where the cheapest boots and
shoes coald be foand. He looked like a
walking cirons bill worked in a dozen col
ors, and attracted qnite as much interest
as his most enterprising patrons could de
sire. Now that the poor old man is begin
ing to make bimieli useful as well as orna
mental, we hope that tbe boys who are in
the habit of pelting bim with sticks and
playing tricks upon him, will treat bim
with more consideration and kindnesB.

TO TBI PUBLIC.
Tbe Washington weekly Review of this
day bss most unfairly attempted to preju
dioe the public mind in reference to my
connection with tbe unfortunate occur
rence of'yesterday. Without entering into
any detail, I will merely say to my fellow
citizens, that neither by word or deed did
I in any way enconrage the fatal transac
tion, or furnish a knife or any other weapon
to either party.
My interference was with a view to sep
arate those engaged in tbe conflict, and to
prevent personal injury to either of them.
This much I deem it due to myself to say,
and I ask the suspension of public opinion,
thus sought to be perverted, until I have
had an opportunity to vindioata myself by
? judicial iovestigation.
Washington, Pa., Nov. 2,1864.
Mr, Sweeney had a trial yesterday and |
was honorably acquited of all participa
tion in the nnfortnnate difficulty except as |
stated in his card.

Captain Snider of tbe Randolph county
Scouts, (State troops) exeooted a very bril
liant little raid the other day, as we learn
by a letter to tbe State Department, He
took twenty-one of his men with him and
went over to Franklin, Pendleton county,
on a scout. They were the first State
troops that had ever been permitted to en
ter tbe town. Tbe place was occupied by
thirty rebels, who were routed by Captain
^nider's men and fled to the woods. Some
of Capt. S's. men previous to joining bis
oompany, bad been confined by the rebels
in Franklin jail, and they burnt the bnild
ing and released those still confined there
in. Dnring the scout Capt. Snider and his
little band killed two rebels, wounded one,
captnred five and brought off quite a num
ber of hone*. These state troops have been
exceedingly serviceable to the Union peo
ple in many portions of tbe State, and have
encountered as many dangers and endured
as many hardship* as any troops in the

Mr. Qiliett, for the defence, replied, (till
pleading to the jurisdiction of the Court,
to the argument of Jodge Advocate Foster.
He held that the Dorr case io Rhpde Island,
and the Vallandigham case, both of which
were referred to yeetcrday by Jodge AdTo
cate Foster, were by no means similar to
the preeeot ease. There was no resem
blance between the case of Vallandigham
and that of Col. North, and those charged
Mr. Qiliett then proceeded to oombat
the provisions of the Constitution which
was one of peace and were necessarily sus

nothing to do with the question before the
The learned Judge Adaocate told the
Conrt that it was for the OoTernment to I
protect the soldier against fraud and in all'
their rights, so far as pertaining to his re
lations to the Oovernment as a soldier.
The soldier, however,doe* not Tote by vir
tue of his relation as a soldier. The right
to vote is a relation springing out of the
local laws of a State. It is the right of a
man as a citizen, not a solder. The OoT
ernment may properly have laws pre Tent
ing the sale of liqoors to the soldiers, and
preventing any one from inducing them to
sell thoir clothes and arms. But it has ne
authority in war, or in peace, to attempt
a supervision or control oTer ciTil rights
Therefore, when the State of New Tork as
a Commonwealth passed a law in relation
to certain rights it does not giTe the Gen
eral Qorernment control OTer such rights.
In this case a crime has been committed.
It is against the ciTil right of the soldiers
and against the law of New Tork, and a
remedy is to be found under the laws of
that State. A number of authorities were
read to show that the United States had no
common law in relation to criminal mat
ters which could be resorted to in this and
similar cases; that the U. S. tribunals had
no power to try causae arising under the
statute laws of the States, and that no
Court had jurisdiction except as given It
by the power creating Courts. The case
ot Mr. Vallandigham differed from this.
Mr. Vallandigham violated a known law
which bad been published, and the conse-?
queocee of the Tiolation of which were
well known to him; but Col. North and
those charged with him knew of no law
which conld arraign them before a military
tribunal. If there was such a law it was
"ex post facto," and consequently uncon
stitutional and Toid.
Ool. Foster in reply again referred to the
Vallandigham ease and said the United
Stales Circnit Court of Ohio refused to
grant an applioation for k/ihtat corpus, for
two reasons. 1st. That they had no pow
er to reTiew the decision of a Military
Court, and 2d, That the Hilitaiy Court had
not exceeded its jurisdiction.
Col. Foster argued that under the Con
stitution many of its provisions >???? to yield

be seixed for public good, and shall it be

In times of war, when the peace powers
of the Constitution conflict with the war
powers, the former must give way to the
latter. The President may, with perfect
legality, nse extraordinary powers, and
snob as may seem to him best in conduct
ing the war, and he must, in accordance
with his oath of office, do all io bis power
to bring the war to a successful termina
tion. In this way the laws of peace most
necessarily be made to give way and what
is known as martial law is substituted.
Col. Foster also referred again to the
Dorr case in Rhode Island, and argued
from it that the war powers of the Presi
dent are unlimited, and that in time of ac
tual war the President may use extraordi
Col. Foster continued by argning that
the war power was strictly Constitutional,
and quoted from various authorities in
support of bis argument. If the arguments
of the counsel for the defence were correct,

they oonld not be tried except by regular
indictment by a Grand Jury and trial bv a

The President in January last, ordered a
Military Commission to bs convened far
the trial of stxoh cases as should be brought
before it. This ease of Samnal North and
other* was sent to this commission by the
appellate power oreatlng the court, and
consequently this commission has no au
thority to say they haTe no jurisdiction in
this case, for jurisdiction has been given by
the Jndge Advocate General. If there is
an organised band to defraud a soldier of
any one of bis rights, has not a military
court the right to try those who swindle a
soldier of his bounty, or who depriTe him
of any of bis rights? It is always a crime
to defraud a soldier and the Government
must take the soldiers interest in band. ~'
The Jndge Advocate denied that the
crime charged was against the statute of
New Tork. The statats does not provide
for the indictment of any one who com
mitted the crime outside of the 8tate in
which an indictment could be obtained,
and consequently a military court to the
proper one to take cognisance of the caee,
for the crime concerned wae against the
soldiers in the field, and consequsntly was

Mr. Qiliett considered the demand of the
Judge Advocate an extraordinary one. He
argued that a plea to the jurisdiction was
not ao unusual thing. If the defence had
demurred, then the Court could decide
w^"ther?*;, Pi? ?hould be entered. Nor
will a Military Oonrt decide that because
a plea to jurisdiction has not been ens
tainsd, that the accused cannot be con
fronted with the witnesses, but that he
shall bo condemned without a trial. The
