Our Children. BY WM. D. GALAGHER. "The beautiful vanish and return not." They are stricken, darkly stricken; Faint and fainter grows each breath; And the shadows round them thicken, Of the darkness that is Death. We are with them bending o'er them And the Soul in sorrow saith, "Would that I had pass'd before them, - To the darkness that is Death!" They are sleeping, coldly sleeping, In the grave-yard still and lone, Where the winds, above them sweeping, - Make a melancholy moan. Thickly round us darkly o'er us Is the pall of sorrow thrown; And our heart-beats make the chorus Of that melancholy moan. They are waking, brightly waking, From the slumbers of the tomb, And, enrobed in Light, forsaking Its impenetrable gloom. They are rising they have risen And their spirit-forms illume, In the darkness of Death's prison, The impenetrable gloom. They are passing, upward passing, Dearest beings of our love, And their spirit-forms are glassing In the beautiful Above. There we see them-there we hear them. . r . I i hrough our dreams they ever move; at to ' And we long to be anearthem, in the beautiful Above. They are going, gently going, In the angel-robes to stand, Where the river of Life is flowing In the far-off Silent Land. we snail nourn them we shall miss them From our broken little band; But our souls shall still caress them, In the far-off Silent Land. They are singing, sweetly singing, : Far beyond the vale of Night, Where the angel-harps are rimrin!?. w. i nn And the Uav is ever bright. Wecanlovethem-we can greet them- from this land of dimmer light, '-'U.TU5 Till God takes us hence to meet them Where the day is ever bright.

Mr Putnam's Concluding Address. Having placed all the documents in the bands of the committee, Mr. Putnam now proceeded to address the committee as follows: Two questions arise with regard to Dr. Webster's statement. First, is it to be believed; second, if believ ed, should it lead to a mitigation of the sen tence pronounced by the Oourt. 1. After all that has passed, noth ing can be claimed by Dr. Webster on the ground of his personal veraci ty. His mere word cannot now be taken for anything he may sav in connection with this case. And yet there are strong, and 1 think suffi cient reasons for believing his state ment to be true. I will indicate to the committee some of those which have weight in my own mind, with the hope that they may be able to find the same lorce in them. I have already called the attention of the committee to the circumstan ces under which the statements were made by Prof. Webster; the sort of appeal to which they were a re sponse the relation in which he and myself stood to each other at the time; the relation in which he stood ro the executive his hrst petition .ui. having gone In, and placing his whole reliance on that and the documents with which he thought that it could be forfeited, and having had, as yet, ii u mea pi ooiaining or seeking a commutation of his sentence. I trust r.n -i .it . iuai a luii consideration win oe civ- inf en to these circumstances, as going to show that Dr. Webster did not make up his story with any view to 2. His statements, though sudden and unexpectedly demanded a n d hy . w.--r ... k " , v I'ivuiuuc i . . , - ' . a I me idea oi a prepared story, contains no contradictions, is perfectly con sistent with itself, and with all the known facts of the case. 3. While the statement denies premeditation of the homicide, it ex- piains sausia'uoruy those circum- stances wnicn were Dought lorward the trial, as tending to show pre- u ui j u scuuiu- mo uiuuu mo couversaiion aooui the gas of the dissecting vault. Under this head I ought to refer lhe i-ettee's testimony.

Ana, as in they fit one expectation just as well the other, they produce nothincr r either way. On the other hand, Dr. Putnam for suggested, at some length that, bv v ebster's declaration, adopting Dr, the homicide was unnremnHita. some circumstances are account- lor, otherwise almost inexplicable. I Such are the onennnVsnf thn annnint. menu his making no show of abill. to pav Dr. Parkman; and the that "he had made no chemical preparations to destroy the body.

Romtim bad exasoflratintr. nnA with manU onv making his debtors do just right; acter while Dr. Webster's character, on bad other hand is sworn to as "timid, irritable, hasty, and sometimes passionate," - the Dr. Putnam then urged the insuf "Sit ficiencv of the alleged motive for nrmH;tatA h nmlrirlp t ft a l.tflA sum w.uw9 itkMv Miaa $483, to a man whose man whose property a a -aaa im ;r h. ;kci u .a. u have well considered the vital laestion as to the effect of his hav- cellation upon them. He followed - . i . -i i .l 3SrS'1 w rt branch of bis argument by adnUing that there was something inexplicable about the notes, which Webster himself probably could make clear. The theory of pre meditation certainly had the moral probabilities against jt, and grant ing that he could have conceived the still there was a greater moral improbability that he coald, when moment came, have executed it. Having thus answered .. the first question 'as to the statement: "is it be believed?" He passed to the second inquiry. , . If from all the facts and circum- cial his but him which gal not in must must most merits, tion stances of the case, credit shall be have nMjii;n r "'r fc . - lei ven to the statement of Dr. Web- ' ... ... ti ster. and the committee snail con clude that it is most probable, oi equally probable (for that would be enough) that the homicide was com mitted in the heat of blood, and was unpremeditated, ought the praver ot the petition be granted, and the sentence commuted! Here he waived any wish of com petency to discuss the legal question that might arise, as to malice being implied by law, and about shitting the burden of proof from the com monwealth to the prisoner. He on ly alluded to the known difference of opinion on that point in the Su preme Court itself, presuming how ever that the hxecuttve council would not wish to impeach at all one of its decisions, or that the people could desire, or Dr. Webster's friends ask such interference of functions. He supposed however that if Dr. Webster's statement could have been proved to the jury under admissible evidence, the verdict could not have been murder. Or if then, the Court, constrained by the rules of the Common Law had instructed the jury, that they must find such a hom icide murder, he supposed it would have been regarded everywhere a case for the Executive. The precise duty of the, Executive, was to make punishment to crime more perfect than any general rules ot law can do. In regard to the punishment of criminal homicide, it seems to me a settled point in the minds of the peo ple, and in the actual administration If" th W .t,at h f Lwk however often the Judiciarv may constrained to award it, shall be carried into execution only ,. , n,,,,, : ji;Kt. intended, and that in all cases in tthiph i h a I. hhAratA intantmn io . u v. uwii autw aitaaaivu IO wanting, or not made out nor neces sarily inferred, a n o ther punish ment less nornble, but still severe and sufficient, shall be substituted bv the Executive. In this latter position, said Dr. Putnam, as I bel ieve the case of Dr. w,hatr tnnrl. I hUv th.-.t ih prayer of his petition ought to be granted, and have presented in his statement, and reason which I in my own think should name move Governor and Council to gran t kn r .., ' x 7'u""uu appropriate sphere, not to win a in I 1 . . . . i case, cui io assist me committee their search for the truth of the case, have no interest in the matter dis inct from that of the Common wealth.

But still, all these facts, putting the worst inter- pretation upon them, would not se ed parately or collectively constitute crime ot murder Mr. Webster's intellectual and so advantages, he said, increased moral lesponsibility doubtless; they increased any punishment say imprisonment in just the same degree. And this is difference enough agaiuai uiui wiuioui inniciing upon a sentence severer in terms, the government have no le or moral right to do. It is some times said, to that reply, that "Dr. Webster must be executed accord ing to his sentence, because it wi'l do to relax the rigor of the law favor of one in his position. He die, whoever else may be spar ed." " This is a cruel sentiment, and subversive of every principle of. hu and of right. The magis trate must recognize no castes, and take care lest he bocome too conscious ol them through his stren uous ' efforts to ignore them.' .

God forbid that this should be so. I know, it is not so I with regard to the treatment he re- : r . i rr I I . I toives irom uie omcers who nave me custody of his person. Dr. Webster certainly ought not to have his sen- tence mitigated because he is what he ia tttiicu, iu our loose social amine- tions, a gentleman, and as certainly his case ought not to be shut out from candid and merciful considera- tion, because he is that It is neither more nor less necessary or right that he should be executed oo that ac- count Considerations of c as t e, nuvrcvei nicy may cneci a portion l of the public unfavorably for him. most certainly will not effect the de- liberations of the Council either way but be brushed aside as only fit to be entertained by narrow and timid minds of one social class, or jealous aim iiiuiiguaui U1IUU3 ui auuuier. Happily the Executive has not the bold alternative of executing or of pardoning the prsoner. May I allowed to suggest, that, in this case imprisonment will best answer 83 the public ends of justice?

And then 'y public sympathies, by an unal- terable law of the mind, must pass the from th si.lnof Inur nnA him as a wronged man wronged wilh that last wrong, which is im measurable and irreparable.

Let the punishment be grad- uc uated to the guilt proved and believ- and if the exact line of right use cannot be certainly found, let the penalty fall a little short of it, rather go a hair's breadth beyond it, the imperfect scales of public jus- vided cannot be exactly poised, let that most which the prisoner's interests are placed be clearly seen, to descend ad though the slightest possible degree not preponderance. Otherwise the example is lost, and the public feel- se'f and conscience come into a fear- pray antagonism against the adminis- may tration of the law.
