The New Ycrk Herald has the following concern
ing the trial of Wirz, the Andersonville prison
"The court-martial convened to try Henry Wirz,
keeper of the Andersonville rebel prison pen, met
yesterday, when Judge Advocnto Chipmnn read a
War Department order dissolving the former com
mission in the case, but convening a new one
composed of the eame members. These being
sworn in, Wirz was again arraigned, and the
charge and specifications, in the main the same as
the previous onc?, were read. They omit, however,
the names of General Lee, rebel war Secretary
Seddon, and rebel Commissary of Subsistence
Northrop, who were at first indicted with Wirz,
but retain the charges of conspiracy, murder,
cruel punishment and barbarity. The two gentle
men who acted as the prisoner's counsel objected
to these proceedings, and asked for a delay to give
time to prepare tho proper defence. Subsequent
ly, however, both of them, after an extended
conference with Judge Advocate Chipman, aban
doned the case and left the court room, and the
latter gentleman was appointed by the President
of the commission to defend the accused. The
court then adjourned till noon to-duy."

A Bpccial "Washington dispatch, dated August
23, to tho N. Y. World, aaya :
"The unmistakably hostile movement of Spain
with regard to San Domingo have not been quietly
passed by here. It is generally believed that the
government will, at least, oppono diplomacy to
every aggression attempted by Spain, and perhaps
adopt even stronger measures to protect the Domi
nicans. Tho course of the Spanish government
concerning San Domingo in tho early part of our
civil war was, for obvious reasons, permitted to
have its effect without a protest from tho United
States; bnt now that the war ?b over, there is euf??
cient reason to think that any new menaco or in
vasion of a friendly country, on the part of Spain,
will not go unheeded by our government. And
Franco may bo given to understand that she may
take tho action of the Unitod States in tho San
Domingo matter as a hint to herself."
