Kaleigh, N. C. March 20, 1806 1 tf. BY OUB OWN SPECIAL RKPOBTKB.- .- Trial of Major John H. Gee. . i.' .-, . TUESDAY, April 17th, 1806. V Hon. Charles H. Dupout, ofQuincy, Fla., Chief Justice of the Supreme Court ol Florida, testified that he, had known the prisoner from his boyhood had been intimate with his father's family since 18:28 to the time of his death was one of his ex ecutors. Maj. Gee's character was that of a high toned, intellectual, educated gentleman if there was one trait more prom'nent than the rest, it was his humanity as a physician ho did a great deal of charity practice among those unable to pay. He was noted for his Immune and Indulgent treatment of his slaves before their emancipation. A question as to his treatment of frcedinen was objected to, and the objection was sustained. The witness stated that Maj. Gee took command of a company of voluuteers, called the Young Guard, at the urgent solicitation of the friends of the members of the company, on account of the confidence entertained iu his moral worth, more, than in his military qualifications, that he dis charged this trust to the high approbation of the company and their lrieuds. Witness made an official visit to Richmond, iu regard to the defense of Florida, and had a con versation with Gen. Bragg iu regard to Maj. Gee's appointment to the prison at Salisbury. The Judge Advocate objected to his stating any conversation with Gen. Bragg on the subject. Mr. Holland urged that the specifications al leged against Maj. Gee acts contrary to the char acter of au honorable soldier, and it was only just, therefore, that the defense should be allowed to show that these specifications were unjust, and also to show why the commanding General (Bragg) had appointed the prisoner to Salisbury. The objection was overruled aud the witness proceeded. Gen. Bragg, who was then commanding General of all the Confederate forces, had stated to the witness, iu the conversation alluded to, that there were a number of hard cases at Salisbury, and that Maj. Gee was appointed to that place on ac count of his prudence and discretion. Witjiess knew Gen. Gardner. Q. Did you know of his treatment ol certain women and children in Florida ? Objected to on the ground of irrelevancy. Mr. Holland stated that he ished to show by this evidence that Maj. Gee was not responsible for the treatment of the prisoners at Salisbury, by showing that Gen. Gardner, who had charge of the prisoners in North-Carolina and Virginia, had proved, by his cruel treatment to women and children iu Florida, that he was capable of exer cising cruelty to prisoners of war. The objection was sustained. The witness had never heard the prisoner swear or use profane language. CROSS EXAMINED. After the disbanding of the young guards, wit ness knew the prisoner by the title of Major, but did not know to what command he was attached could not speak as to his health when he went to Salisbury did not think he was a man of violent prejudices. The conversation with Gen. Bragg, alluded to, was in the latter part of October or first of November, 1S04. BY TIIE COFRT. The young guard was disbanded before witness went to Richmond did not think Maj. Gee was a man whose enthusiasm would lead him to au act of inhumanity, if that act would advance the cause in which he was engaged. Win. T. Stockton, of Quiucy, Fla., farmer, had known Ma;. Gee for twenty-six years for fifteen years most intimately, in all that time never heard of au act ol his of inhumanity to man, horse or dog that he had won the esteem of all who knew him; that this esteem, and the interest felt in him were based on his known character as a gen tleman; as a physician he was highly esteemed hischaracteras a soldier wa marked by kindness, and as an officer he was beloved for the care he took of the privates. Witness stated the official places held by the prisoner after the disbanding of the young guard, in all which he had a high reputation for soldierly conduct and courage. He had never heard Maj. Gee take the name of Deity in vain, or use pro fane language iu any way. From his knowledge of Maj. Gee's character, does not believe that he would allow his enthusiasm to lead him into au act of inhumanity to advance his cause does not believe he would be guilty of inhumanity to any one under his command. Had seen Maj. Gee frequently after the surren der, at his home does not know of his being ad vised to leave to avoid arrest he showed no dis position to avoid arrest since his return home he had demeaned himself as a peaceful and orderly citizen. CROSS EXAMINED. Witness based his knowledge of Maj. Gee's re putation while iu the army of Teuncssec,on what he heard from his own sou and at least a dozen others. Court adjourned to 10 o'clock Wednesday nioruing. WEDNESDAY, April 17, 1S5. The Commission met and the journal of yester day was read. Gen. James G. Martin, fifth witness for the de fense, was sworn. Ha was Brigadier-Generaldur-ing the war in September, 1804, he commanded the Western district of North-Carolina, and was ordered by the Department at Richmond to furn ish a guard of 1500 men at Salisbury, at the time the large number of prisoners were sent there. This guard consisted in part of about 1100 'Senior Reserves, brought first from their homes and to tally unskilled in military or guard duty, com manded byjotficers elected from amongthemselves. The order was from the War Department. Wit ness went to Salisbury to organize this force the best he could found the supplies in the Q. M. and Com. Departments there very scarce. The supplies from the country round had been sent to Gen. Lee's army there were no tents or axes at Salisbury, he was told, but afterward got about six axes the guard got no Q. M. stores and the rations were scant. Maj. Gee reported to witness for a time after the prisoners cainc, but the command of the pri son was soon turned over to Gen. Winder, and Maj. Gee then reported to him. Witness was at Salisbury several times during the time he had the guard there in charge had frequent conversa tions with the accused in regard to the scarcity of stores there, and of the unfitness of the place for the large number of prisouers sent there. The accused was in communication with the authori ties at Richmond, urging that no more prisoners be sent to Salisbury, and complaining of the want of accommodations for them that there was no lumber to enlarge the stockade nor to make shel ter every body complained of the scarcity around there the guard had no shelter, except what they found in the sheds and stables near by witness saw the telegrams of Maj. Gee to Richmond and the answers these answers were to the effect that an engineer would be sent to iuspect the prison. Witness came to Raleigh to get supplies but could get none from the Confederate authori ties, made a requisition for tents and axes, a few of which were furnished, as he afterward saw tents in the prisons none of the guards, except those who were there before the prisoners of war came, had tents the tents in the prison were used on the ground, and not, pitched, when he noticed them. Prisoners were continued to be sent alter Maj. Gee telegraphed not to send any more he was answered that an Inspector would be scut out, and that he must do the best he could with them, us there was no where else to send them. The witness explained the manner of making impressments, by which it appeared that Maj. Gee had no authority to impress provisions or other things. Sevcial General Orders' of the Confeder ate authorities in regard to impressments were read and entered of record as part of the testi mony tor the defense. The Seuior officer of the guard forces at Salis bury bad the command, but could not control nMaj.,. Gee, who reported directly to Richmond, but he could not control the forces' at Salisbury, Vthe commanding officer having pewer to restrict .'the guard asked for by Maj Gee to guard the prl '; sou, - and Maj. Gee complained to witness that this was done, and that the officeraVere, many of " them, unfit lor the, duties. . U.., . . i a. Witness stated that huts for the prisoners could not have been erected In a long time, even if they had the axes to cut and teams to haul the timber, on account of insufficiency of men to do the work the teams that were there could not haul wood enough for the prison, even with the assistance of the Railroad. Maj. Gee frequently complained of want of supplies the first day the prisoners came, he had nothing to give them to eat until late in the day. On one occasion Maj. Myers seized a quantity of provision on the train going to Lee's army, and asked hitn for a force to take them the authori ties of the Road gave them up after thoy found the guard had been ordered. Witness further testified in regard to Maj. Gee's efforts to procure water for the prisouers, aud also lumber for shel ters that he had employed the saw mills to furn ish it, but every thing worked slow teams were scarce aud the roads iu bad order. Witness ap plied to the Confederate authorities for clothiug, but got none afterward got one order for a small t-upply of clothes aud blankets from the State, but don't know that it was ever filled. The Seuior Reserves were entitled to the same sup plies as othor troops iu the service, but never got them. There was much excitement throughout the country iu regard to impressments, and the peo ple were opposed to selling to the government because the price it paid was far less than the market price. Maj. Myers' district was composed of the counties around and including Rowan ; some of them might be called northwestern coun ties of the State. Maj. Gee often advised wi.h witness as to what was best to do in regard to the prisoners Judge Baxter was present on some of these occasions aud saw the telegrams to Richmond, aud the an swers thereto, before alluded to. When General Winder came he examined the prison and said it was unlit, aud he showed witness a letter to the Department, iu which he had so reported. Maj. Gee told witucss that he had applied, or intended to apply, to be relieved, because he had not the means and faei ities to do what ought to, be done f. r the prisoners. Maj. Gee discharged his duties as well as could be done under the circumstances sud with the means at his com mand. Witness knew nothing of any order forbidding intercourse between citizens uud the prisoners ordinarily prisoners are not allowed to have com munication with persons outside without an or der. Witness had a conversation with General ..ayes, a prisoner, iu regard to the prison, and he professed satisfaction cxeept iu regard to rations. Witness then, as a military man, stated that Maj. Gee, after all his efforts to prevent the pris oners being sent to Salisbury, aud to get them supplies after thev eame, had quit bis position without leave, he would have been liable to be court-marl ialed on charges of disobedience to or ders ai d desertion ol his post, the penalty for which wo ild have been death, and his efforts and rcmorstra ices would not have excused him. The Commission then adjourned to 10 o'clock Thursday. LATEST NEWS. ' Trouble In Norfolk between the Negroes and I White rej:l ! Several while people tilled f j FIItST DISPATCH. !

Testimony of A. II. Stephens Itrfore the IIeon strurtlon tuumT.itee. Washington, April 10. Among the tes timony reported to-day lrom the Committee on Reconstruction was that of A. II. Ste phens. lie states that he had conversed freely anil fully with prominent leading men in Georgia, and met with a great many prom inent and influential men at Milledgcville, not connected with the Legislature. He gave his decided opinion, from conversation with them, and from correspondence, that an overwhelming majority of the people of Georgia are exceedingly anxious for the res toration of the government, and for the State to take her former position in the Union; to have her Senators and Representatives ad mitted into Congress, and to enjoy all her rights, and discharge all her obligations as a State, under tin; Constitution of the United States as it stands amended. His opinion of the sentiment of the people of Georgia is that the exercise of the right of secession was resorted to by them from a desire to render their liberties and institutions more secure, and a belief on their part that this was ab solutely necessary for that object. He fur ther believes it is their opinion that the surest, if not the only hope for their liber ties, is the restoration of the Constitution of the United States, and of government under that Constitution. He thinks the people are sufficiently satisfied with the experiment never to resort to that measure of redress again, by force. Whatever may be their own abstract ideas upon that subject, they have come to the conclusion that it is better to appeal to the forms of reason and justice, to the halls of legislation and the courts for tiie preservation of th:; principles of consti tutional liberty, than to the arena of arms. The idea of secession is totally abandoned. The Trial of Jeff. Davis. Boston, April 14.

Editors of the National Intelligencer; ' Gentlemen : In your paper of this morn ing I observe a very incorrect and perverted report of one of "my recent opinions in a habeas corpus easel ' .. V , - . : -. ' In that opinion I did not express a doubt of the legality of the late peace proclamation, nor was its legality called in question by any one connected with the case; nor did I express the opinion that the writ- of Juibeas corpus could not be executed in oue State while the rebellion was not suppressed in another, butthe very contrary opinion. My opinion simply was, that the late peace proclamation did not pretend to revoke the previous proclamation of President Lin coln suspending in certain cases the writ in the States lately in insurrection, and I stated that the peace proclamation did not include Texas, and that it had not and was not in tended to have so broad and general an ap plication as the petitioner supposed, and therefore refused to grant his prayer.
