The Military Commission assornl-Jed at 10 a. m., yesterday, and con? tinued the trial of the late rebel Captain Henry Wirz. All of the mem? bers of the Court.wore present, also tliQ Judge Advocate, and Mr. Schade for the prisoner. The reading of Thursday's proceedings Was conclud? ed at 11.45 a. m., when the prisoner was brought into court, and resumed his place on the sofa. A greater num of ladies were present than ou any former day. Judge Advocate Colonel N. P. Chipman informed tho Court that he had received a letter from Mr. "Baker, . one of the accused's counsel, who stated that he would not be present to-clny, and that Mr. Schade, ids associate counsel, would conduct the trial on the part of the accused. After the usual testimony as to tho i horrible treatment of the prisoners had been gone throngh with, and | Sergeant John W. Cray.' of the j Seventh Indiana Cav.dry, had testi- ] lied, the prisoner, Wir/., raised him- \ self on his hand and knees on the ! sofa, and, addressing the witness, said: "You did not seo me there!" Tito Judge Advocate here asked the | accused to rise to his feet, so that the ; witness cotild see him. This thepri-i soner, with apparent agony, succeed- I cd in doing, when lie again addressed ! the witness, saying: '.'You never saw me there. Look good!' Make sure.*' The witness, hesitatingly, .'aid he bc- j lieved he was tho man. The prisoner here beeam? perfectly frantic, and ap- j peared to be in agony from'head to I foot, when tiie counsel mid the guard > induced him to lie seated, the counsel. 1 Mr. Scha'de, telling him it would be j all right. Tlie acense'd (drawing 1 quick and heavy breaths) replied ? hysterically: "I know it will, but, O, ? Clod!" He was here handed his bottle of stimulants, cud given a drink of i water, and the prison .doctor, Mr. Ford, sent for. The accused was taken into au adjoining room. [ Washington Cor. Ncc York Times.

Sept 27 For Congress. Wc are au'Jiorizcd to announce JAMES FARROW, Esq., of Spartanburg, as a can? didate to represent, in thc Congress of the United States, the Fourth Congressional District, comprising the Districts of An? derson, Picken?', Greenville, Laurens, Spar? tanburg, Union, York and Chester. Sept MO_" "FO^^O?GRESS. The friends of GEO. D. TILLMAN. Esq., respectfully announce him a candidate for CONGRESS, at the ensuing election, in tho Third District, embracing Orangebnrg, E<ige?ie?.d, Lexington, Abbeville, Newberry, Richland and Fairfield. Sop't 28* -: To thc Voters o? Orangebarg, Eil~r ?lcld, Abbeville, JTcvrbCrry, Lexing? ton, ii.iclil.md and Fairfield.. FEIVLOW-CITIZINS: Alter much hesitation, ? have consented to bc put in nomhiation for vi nu- Representative hi thc Congress <>f thc United States. I publish this card, be? cause the District is so large and the time b'efore th? election so short ;hat I could not. ir' 1 desired, canvass the Distiictf. 1!' a canvas** were possible, however, I do not think it becoming or desirable*. In my judgment, t ! i i is no time for a scramble for office. It seems to mc that no one proper? ly impressed with thc solemnity of the crisis, and thc delicacy and importance of the duties to be discharged, could seek thc position merely for tho gratification of per? sonal ambition. For myself, I declare that I have no wish but to serve the State. In 17.SS, South Carolina, through a con? vention of her people, became one of thc United States. She remained amcrnbero! ! the Union until December, IS!}.'), when, I through another i onvention of her people. : she repealed tho Ordinance of 17.SS, seccd ' ed from the United States, and with vcr I tai:? other sister Statescntered intoanothei government known aa the Confederate Government. We believed that we had tin 1 right to secede and. tbat.'onr security re? quired its exercise in co-operation with otu Southern sisters. South Carolin;., in 1M52 proclaimed by solemn ordinance the righi of secession. It had long been thc scttlei opinion of thc State that she was sovcreigi and entitled to all the rights of sovereignty j she asserted self-government in ord?r ti 1 .--..cure lier institutions and principles fron i great evils, believed to bc imminent. Sc i cession was in thc nature of a proceedin.? I quia liiiui. lt was conceived in the spirit <> j self-preservation-not to injure others bu to save ourselves. It cannot bc necessary to sav that J am otic of thos? who believi that it was an honest effort for honorabli purposes. The United States Governnicn denied thc right of secession and wager war upon the Confederate States, whiel I stood upon thc defensiv.'. A terrible WK: i of invasion and di solation followed, au< finally the Confederate States vere over whelmed by force of numbers and dissolved At the end of the war the State ol' Souti Carolina found thc Confederacy broken np her citizens who survived thc terribh ordeal exhausted ami impoverished, hoi instit niions destroyed, and the whole cont: try occupied by thc military forces of tin United states." Under these painful cir enmstances, the President of the Unitci States invited the States lately composing the Confederacy to re-organize their gov ernments and restore then: connection witl the Constitution and Government of Un United States, upon certain conditions-, th< principal of which was an acquiesence i: tho abolition of slavery, which had beei accomplished by the i?ilitaiv authorities Thc State, wisely in my judgment,respond ed favorably to tho invitation. It is trm that the mere issue of battle does not prov? right any more than did the old "wager o battle;" but it -Iocs prove power which can not l?e disregarded. A Provisional ('.over nor was appointed, who called another con vention Of the people, which has latch repealed tho Ordinance of S. cession, ant by an article in the St-ile Constitution recognized the abolition of slavery and pro hibited its re-< stablisluncnt. By repeal ing that of Secesi?n, the Ordinance o 1788, through which South Carolina be? came' a member of tho Union, waa ijm facto revived, and we are thia day in tin Union precisely as we became in 178M, and remained up io 1860. Wc are now in a very anomalous position. Relying upon the good faith and patriotic intentions of the President of thc United States, we have done all that was required of us to restore our old relaftons to the Constitution and the Union; but stilt we have not been received into fellowship at Washington. That important part of thc plan of reconstruction remains yet to bc accomplished. It is understood that a party will oppose thc President's plait of reorganizing tin- States and giving to tlumi equality of rights, and will insists upon still farther despoiling and crushing the States of the South as conquered provinces. This radical fanatical party opposed our leaving the Union, and nowtliey oppose our return? ing to it. When we were in the Union, they abused us on account of slavery. They waged war upon us because we triad to separate from them, and now that we pro? pose to return without slavery, they ?til! object. In this emergency, tin-state need* the Resistance of all h-.r true men. Much remains to bc dene, and not thc lca>t is tu secure a prudent, faithful and patriotic representation in Congress, to assist and forward the work of restoration which the State has e immcnced. 1 arrogate not tu myself litiiess to form part of such a rep? resentation, bat friends have urged me for? ward, cud if yon are willing to try mo, I will give my best efforts. In some respects, we are at the beginning of our policy, as if wo were a new State abie.it to assume new relations with our sister States; but we must never allow our? selves to forget that in other respects we are an old State-a State having antece? dents a name to maintain and a history to preserve. Whatever may betide us in thc uncertain future, the past, at least, is se? cure. South Carolina has never swerved from the path of honor, as she conceived it. Wo have a record of which none need be ashamed; and when any apostate son bois disclaims or disparages it, -may she eas; him ont as unworthy of her. Tin devotion of every true sou ol'the State adheres in adversity as well as in pros? perity -is lov-t! through evil as well as through good report; and in thc midst of thc greatest misfortunes^"sticketh closer thay a bi-otlu-r."' A.tur the delegations from the Southern States ?hall have been received into Con? gress, many do!ieat?*and hupoitant duties will devolve upon them, especially in refer? ence to the freedmen of tba South, and the control which Congress, or a party in Con? gress, may desi:-* >tir t.i ri'Iso over them. It may not be improper, in this connection, to say that, whilst I have ap? proved the course of the State in seeking to restore her obi relations with the Govern? ment of thc United States, it has been upon the faith and expectation that the State, as soon ai reconstructed, is to lun e entire <- )e.h-ol of the whole subject o? her domes? tic affairs. The State, and the State alone, must bo left to decide to whim she will give the right of suffrage or omer political rights.

With these views, if the voters of the District think that I can serve them or the Stat-.- in this critical emergencj, 1 will do my best for them; but 1 have JO high a sense of my own incompetency iud of thc .diHiculties and responsibilities i the posi? tion, to solicit it br a personal Mnvass.
