News from the Lccompton Charter.
Our readers will find gome important news
nfleeting the progress and transmigrations of
the Dyer Charter, on the t-ecoml page ol this
War in lowa—All about a County seat.
On Mondi.y the 17th in*l., us we learn liom
the Marietta (lowu) L'xprets, a company of men
from the neighboring town of Marshall (bath in
Marshall County,) entered the place and car
ried (ill' three prominent citizens of Marietta
who had recently officiated as judges of an elec
tion to decide the question of a county seat for
the said county. Arrived at Marshall, one of
the prisoners, Judge Smith, was informed that
there was great danger of his being lrnched un
less he re canvassed the returns and declared
Marshall the winning town. After some farther
intimidation Jjdge S. made out the required
certificate declaring Marshall the county test.
On the 1011, wyjg rnweing a train of wagons
loaded with ned men followed by about foity
persous on loot with muskets on their shoal
ders, entered Marietta with the intention of car
rying oil' the county records, As., but they were
met at the court house by the citi/._-na of Mari
etta and repulsed without bloodshed. The next
day tht court lioube was guarded by about four
hundred armed men, but no lurther attempt
was made to take the records.

i Trial «f Henry Jumper!/, for the Alleged
- I Murder of Sophie \Vern*r, at UiJrago,

j In the Circuit Court of Cook County, Judge
I j Kanierra Presiding.
Tbe Court o;>ened jesterday at y A. M., with
" a marked increase in the attendance of specta
; tors, who promptly filled every available eeat
aud place they were allowed to occupy. Tbe
new arrangement of i:it« Court room largely in.
crccse iub, at the same time with
greater btillnet-s, uo.c i latter, however, must
be set down equally to the praise of the ollicers
of the Court.
Tne prisoner was breua'nt in, attended by clli
cer Tenbroeck, and the jury ««ere in their
places at nine o'clock.
During a portion ot the forenoon, Hon. John
M. \\ iliOfl, of the Court ol Comcton Pleas, sat
beside Judge Maoierre, whib the bar was very
fully by a Urge attecdai.ee of the pro
orKM.sa Poa iuk itoplk
District Attorney Haven, afier refernsg to
the heavy respinsibilities of all murder trials,
which were much increased, when over the act
of alleged homicide huag a mystery so great'
and so dense ob to bi:lif4 all investigation.
In this cade it would be nccesst-ry to go back
to the time anterior to the alleged homicide.
Evidence would show that two years ago the
prisoner became acquiiuted with deceased.
That an Intimacy apruag up between them,
sod they afterwards lived together ia fornica
tion and aduitery. An unpleasant notorietv
wascaused. Tne womm was about to become
a mother, and at the prisoner's suggestion thev
went to Milwaukee in Jane, 1557. He there
found work as a barber, they living together, ot
first claiming to tie bro'btraad aisitr,. but as
ber co:.iioeineat approiched, laying aside all
concealment and pad&icg an mau and wife.
They so continued fur some months.

Tup Lcxt evidence introduced is to come from
New York city, where, on the 24 of April, a bar
rtl h found at a railroad depot, diroct-d to "W
J. Jencirg«, No. ICo street." No
such peiftuiiaod no such nuiuocr has been found
the barrel is returced, and remtina uncallfd lor

Physicians will tell yoj, that from the body, as .
i brought to this city, it will be imposstole to 1
show tbe cause of death bv poison. 1
The statement ol defri/duut will be given in
evidence. He alleges thai deceased hung her- I
oelt, leaving a ime to him, trying she could not i
live any loader. He Saj'.s this letter blew out of '
the window, aud was lutt. He states she Lung i
bers<-ll on a c mrnon caat-book screwed into the
Je of the door. Tnis door and nock will i
be proauced, and we shall show it to be impossi. 1
ble that the hanging could hbve. thus taken t
place, and the story is a fabrication throughout, i
The counsel referred r.t length to other circum- <
stances, as he claimed, those prece- t
ding, giving construction to prisoners' conduct
and expressions relative to deceased.
They would produce a letter, purporting to 4
have been written by Sophie Werner, and the *
jary ahould judge from the evidence whether it I
was genuine; tticy should show that Sophie f
Werner had u quantity of money which he ap
propnated towards pjying for a lot; that before :
be was arretted, various persona inquired of him f
what bad become of her; that he replied to one
" that be had settled up with her and she woald
never trouble him again." To another that he
had had trouble with one woman, and he should *
be caretul how he had trouble with another. £
They would show that the deceased came to
this city tram Milwaukee expeciiug to go with '
him to St. Louis to open a shop; that she man- c
utaetured a number of towels and brought them
with her, and they were lound iu her trunks. t
Mr. llaven then proceeded to read the indict
ment, whiclT is io three couuts. The first sets
forth the killing "ins.ime means aad manner 1
unknown." Tn« second names a rone as the iu- *
Strnment. The third is identical wub the pre- ®
ceding, save that f'.u'uuiii'j is alleged. f
The indictment, tfie prosecutor stated, is a \
copy of that in th-j Purkuun-Webster case,
names only changed/, lu ibat celebrated case,
to oejections raisttd a.;aiust the indictment from
it* lack ol detinitencrifl, the opinion of Judge
Shaw (Bemis* Report, p.-171,) established the *
rule that where ibeciuse ofoeata Is uncertain, 1
the indictment ib made to cover in advance what *
may tioally appear in evidence.

■Ur,lfcConi<i* t openiig for the delence,gave a k
•ketch of the life of delendact, who was born at
Bonne, Prussia. He is 20 years of age. For C
some time in his native land, he was employed ,
about a medical college, to prepare tubjects for t
dissection, whence and where he learned fa- i
miliarity with the human frame and its disaec- 1
tion. He came to this country in 1554. Was a l
a resident of New Bedford, Mass., and later at f
Lowell, where he bccime enamored of a young 1
woman he still cherished allection for. The re- \
lations of prisoner and deceased were fully dis- i
cussed. It would be shown in evidecce that de- *
ceased was of a desponding turn of mind. That c
she had twice before her intimacy with Jum
pertz attempted ber own life. He never became
acquainted with her until after she had left her
The motive of killing was denied. It would he (
shown that she was about to leave him to go to
Rochester. He would be free without auy net of j
the kind. As to the method of disposing of the 1
body, it was horrible, it was revolting, but nflcr 1
the codoealmcnt of the body of the salcide had i
been decided upon, tbe wny was one that would 1
strike any inind as the best aud surest; to enclose 1
the poor remain* and dispatch diem to a blind ad- t
diesv« at u distance. The cutting aud dbmembtr*
lng only followed when it was discovcicd the j
body would not go into the barrel without ho do- j
ins. It had been already di-embaweled, and j
once commenced, the work mast be gone through ,
with. The jury mu*t consider all es t-uccessivo
steps necessarily forced upon the defendant when
the first mad policy of ouecalmeut was decided :

j [Statements of deceased to witness at the
e j time of starting objected to by defence, but held
QmtUon hy Mr. Miller— State what, if any
thing, Sophia Werner said to you at the time of
i leaving Milwaukee for Chicago.
A. She said she wanted to go now ; Jumpertz
j had written to her to come, and that she was to
sell everything; and if no other way, at auction;
e if she couldn't get more than $8 or $lO for it,
i. sell it, and bring nothing with her; she was to
a go in the night train, closely veiled her
self, and speak to no one on the train;
that Jumpertz had written her that he did not
b desire her to remain long in Chicago with him,
bat intended to go to St. Louis and for the pre
sent had hired but one room; she said she would
mk it again once more to go to him, but if he
f did not treat her any better would not remain
long with him; that he had written her not to
j bring her clothes,that be would buy everything
necessary; did not ask her what money she
hod; she did not show it to me; she hud con
siderable; put it in the right side of her bosom;
she said something about the money.

if she had money she wonld send it to the old 1

tbe jewelry, which was in paivn. 1
(District Attorney Haven stated thrt it was j
desirable that tbe examination cf thi3 witness t
should be finished at this time, as she was hour- I
ly expecting her continemsnt. Mr. McComas, ]
for defence, repliei that he could enter into no
agreement as to the departure of this witness <
from the city. He had taken pains to converts '
with her, as stated in her testimony, and she
told him and gave him different statements «
from those now given on the stand. He thought '
she might be mislaUn: certainly there was a J
conflict, there might be a fraud, though he could
conceive no reason for tho same. i

To Mr. Hartn —Did say to tbcm (Gray and t
.McComas) that the innerpart was Sjphie's, but *
not certain as to tbe band writing; did not 1
know; tbe contents belonged to her letter ; the t
letter was double; tbis letter (the white letter ) I
is only half a sheet. t

Sophie"as a full sheet of blue paper, a portion x
of one side blank.] E
To Mr. Jlavcn and Mr. McComas 1

the letter something about her sister, about
which 1 so concluded that tbe coutentfc.were \
hers. t
Mrs. Jit'iza Mabiticorn— Residein Milwaukee; 1
knew Juuapens and Sophie Werner when they {
first moved into the houße on Market street; it
was the summer of 1557 in August; I was living •
in the upper room of the same house with tbem; *
at first Sophie said Jumpertz was her brother; *
after Jumpertz had gone she said the child she
gave birth to was his; was present when tbe '
child was born ; a midwite was there ; Jump- (
ertz was arwork in tbe shop that day. 1
[Question as to the child objected to by the •
deleuce. Mr. Haven stated that he proposed 1
to show the child was born dead through the *
wilful treatment of prisoner, to Bhow the relation 1
of the parties ]
Mr. Jan Arman urged that it was irrelevant 1
and illegal to attempt to show in the course of a 1
trial for one murder, another murder of a child '
unborn. [
-1/r. Mcllrcy thought evidence on the point I
might come mat £»me*stage of the ca<e. if not i
before, certainly to rebut te.-timouy as to char
-Vr. J/iirrn urged it< as directly
showing the relatious of the parties.
The Cuiirl held that any tc-stimmy showing the
relation of the parties was competent. Witness 1
might stitc anything withiu ber knowledge a* to *
the treatment of deceased by prisoner at the time |
of the birth of the child, or the general manner of j
their life. c
Mr. Vcn Arman urged that under one ind : ct- ]
ment for otic crime, evidence going to show an- * :
other uniounting to u feioDy was not admissible.- J

Objected to, and objection sustained. With- v

Q. From ber own statement do you know fi
why Sophie left Milwaukee? [Objected toby b
delence—overruled-exception taken ) 4 Be
cause Jumpertx wrote that she should come- *
she gave me no other reason; I knew their 41
things pretty well; they were sold when sbe l '
came. Q. Do you know why ? [Objected to— n
overruled ]A. The defendant told me he wrote r
her to sMI the things. r
Mr. Van Arma» moved to ttrike out the an- a
ewer as consisting of what Sophie said, which 81
could not establish the contents of the letter. a
The Court in overruling the motion held that f,
my conversation between tbem relative to their
-H leaving ililwaukee for Chicago would be admis
® sible.
A She satd that Jumpertz had promised to
. marry her; *he told me be told her to sell the
stair, just after she got the letter; it micht
have been three or four days before she left that
a she came up stairs and said she had got a letter
to ecll everything and to come to Chicago; she
waa to come on tbe Ist ot March, but it took to
£ the 3d of March to sell the things.
J/>. Van Arman moved to strike cut the an
swer, as the.proving of the contents of a letter
e or written document could cot be accomplished
d in this way.
The Court held that no fixed rnle conld gov

'f mit everything that could throw light on the
z reason and cauees of tqe deceased leaving Mil
o waukee, as a part of the res gtsla.

■» (J. What else was said? A. She did not speak
° to me any more but to others; she left on the
" afternoon of the 3d or 4th of March; saw her
» when she went; saw ber at the houße for the
last time; never saw Sophio write; she wrote
> a very tine cramped hand. (The letter on white
a paper showo.) The handwriting 1 cannot re
£ cognize csrtaiuly; from tbe contents, she may
have written it; ibe handwriting is coarser; her
* writing was more unequal and less distinct;
® Sspbie carried some chests, a rocking chair,
J Home quilts oa top of the chest*, when she left
e Milwaukee. (Witness identified tbe trunk,
* dresses, &c) This green dress she had on when
* she come to Chicago; was present when she
packed the trunks, tbe day before she left.
Q. Did she say anything at that time why she
came? Objected to and overruled. A. jfo I
was there but a short time; bad a little one only 1
& short time down stairs. Direct examination
herp closed.
' Jfr. I'au Arman moved to strike out all the
testimony of the witness as far as i; appertained
to conversations with Sophie Werner relative to
♦he contents of the Icttrr. Written documents
Hiraifh the beat evidence of their contents.
Every reason why she came to Chicago from
fter own statements was admissible, bat evi
dence relative to contents of letter was of a dif
ferent nature.
The Court held where an act is proved in evi
dence any declaration accompanying the act
m-y ho proved in evidence. It is not the -ques
tion whether tho statement is true or false.
Tho eole question is, is the conversation admis
sible as part of the res geita. Motion to ex
clude overruled.
Croft txiiuined by Hfr. IfcCotnat— Cannot say
if the parties lived peaceably or otherwise

on down stairs; could have heard any
dilliculues; can't sav who bought the things

'J. Was she low-tempered and desponding?

often spoke of Werner; sometimes said he was
the author ot all her sorrows; that she could il

Direct K<»umei by Mr. MilUr.—She read the
whole of the letter to me. (The whole letter
thotfti.) 1 think that is not the letter I saw;
she never speke to me about going to Roches- j
ter, only that she had written to her sister and J]
that this young man had been there; the sen
tencea in the letter about Charlie and about the
sister are like Sophie's; I can read the letter
easily; it does not all sound like Sophie; my tl
husband was present; cannot say who bought
the furnitnre; it was sold to many of the neigh- :

Jl/r. Jfavtn wished to establish a point as to ?
tbe destruction of these letters, and by permis
sion of toe Court called for this specific purpose
the following witness, introduced to establish
this one point: ' 1
Jjcob lukm —Atn City Marshal; arrested
prisoner ; he told me then he had received let
ters from Sophie Werner; that he wrote to her e
and she answered; he told me he barat her let- f
ters fhe was dead „

In the address on the letter spelled? Objected to. x
Overruled. A. Hen ry: tiiat wad the lirst oae; D
I can't tell any m.nv; noticed it becau-e I spelt it \

C'ro*t A'xtimin«l by Jfr. JfcConuu.—The letter r
spelled " Henry " was tbe first ot tbe two. It
was put in in February; there was but little
time between the two; in German Henry is i
spelt Heinrich, in butch Henri: that letter ,
[the letter shown] is in German; tbe parties t
lived peaceably; lie paid for the rent and pro- 1

Punch Ciqaes—To the Smokus or Cbicago. c
In introducing the Punch Cigars to the smok- t
era of Cbicago, we need only refer to the euvi- b
able reoutation which thev have won for them- c
6elves in tbe city of New York duriog the short fi
interval since their first importation. Tbe fame *
of Punch Cigars spread like wild fire, and so r
rapid and unexpected was their leap into popn- t!
larity that the importers were obliged to limit
their sales to that city alone until the receipt of H
further shipments. o
Oar determination to start with the best brand o
in the market, and to supply a deficiency always a
notorious in tbis city, has stimulated us to eve- tl
ry exertion to secure the first sale of tbe Punch "

in a year of average prosperity.
Washixgtox, Jan. 26.—As less than a majori-
ty eannot make a formal report tbe probability f
is that nothing on the subject of the tariff wiu V
-be reported from the Ways and Means Commit- M
tee this session. The above named bills, may,
ia« however, be brought into tbe House by courte
ir- sy, with a view of obtaining a decision on their
TS separate merits. The Committee have decided
If, that they will report no Joan bill with
}ls out a revision of the tarifl attached, and have
b, fixed the amount at to fund the
Treasury notes and pay the interest thereon.
The loan to be payable at pleasure after two
—. years and before six.
J. All parties are in a quandary about the tariff,
er it seems to be understood that ihe Republicans
er and Pennsylvania Democrats will generally sup
id port specific duties, but the majority of the Ds
p. mocrats, rather than do this, will let the tariff
it stand os it is. even if they have to come to di-
