"Governor Stearns, oi Florida, telegraphs
to-day from Tallahassee as follows: 'There is
no doubt of our majority in this State if we
can secure an hotest canvass. The indica
tions are that violence is to be freely resorted
to so as to prevent any returns from remote
points in the interior. Oar special train from
Tallahassee last night to the Chattahoochle
to collect returns from western counties was
Ku-Kluxed a few miles west of here, and ihe
train thrown from the track, which was torn
up and blockaded in several places.' "

district, which was reported as very probable
to elect Jorgcnson, Rep. Reported returns to
night irom all the counties in that district but
three give IHnton, Dem-, over 300 majority.

of tbe next House of Representatives, so far as
can be learned from the returns up to this
date. There aie several districts in which the
Tote is close, and late returns may change the
result in perhaps five or six cases. The table,
as it now stands, shows a Democratic majority
of rcven, but there are indications of farther
gains to the Republicans in California, Penn
sylvania, New York, Missouri, and other
States, so that complete returns may give the
House to tbe Republicans:

Destruction of KutUated Currescy.
Thefollowlng circular has been issued from
the office of the Comptroller of Currency:
It has become necessary to present for the
cot s ' rjtion of national banks a fact which
has o c sioned much Inconvenience, and which
is tbe came of dally increaslnzembarrassment,
namely, the rapidity w(th which national bank
notes are wearing out and being returned for
d( stru' tlon, taken in connection with the large
number ol scents appointed to witness this
destruction In behalf of the banks. It is
necessary to destroy tbe notes of one hundred
to one hundred and fifty different basks In One
day, and the names of about one hundred and
fifty persons are registered as agents. Much
time is consumed in looking up these .gentle
men; some cannot be found when wanted,
some arc dilatory, and others neglect to attend
when notified. Then, when they assemble,
tbe number Is often so great that there is no
room ior their accommodation, and great con
fusion, delay, and inconvenience are likely to
result. The- matter has, at lengtfa,reached
that point where some change must be made
some relief must be obtained, or the public
business will be seriously obstructed. I have,
accordingly, concluded that the most feasible
method of obviating the difficulties of the sit
uation will be to submit the names of a suffi
cient number of reliable agents, and request
the banks to makechoice from that number.
The following names are presented for that
purpose: The National Bank of Washington
ti y, Messrs. A. S. Pratt A. Son, J. C. G. Ken
nedy, T. W. Patchlo, esq , Messrs. Middleton
A Co., Lewis Johnson & Co., and Joseph S.
Burnett, esq. All these will be in daily at
tendance at this office, and will save the neces
sity of giving special notice as well as the loss
of time In looking for them. The necessities
of the case have forced mc to adopt this plan,
and, while I do not wish to be arbitrary, such
regulations must be prescribed as will prevent
unreasonable delay in tbe transaction of pub
lic business.
John S. Lee, the Mormon Assassin.
The Piocbe Record, of October SI, says of
the case of John D. Lee, convicted of partici
pation In the Mountain Meadows massacre
and sentenced to be shot : In conversation
with W. W. Bishop, last evening, in relation
to the Lee trial, he informed us that he has
appealed the ciae to the Utah Supreme Court.
If their decision Is adverse he will appeal to
the Supreme Court of the United States. He
has labored hard for the man who has been
made a scapegoat of by the Mormon leaden,
and hopes yet to secure a different verdict.
Should the United States Supreme Court de
cide adversely he will appeal to Executive
clemency. He has in his .possession a vast
amount of documentary evidence and private
manuscript written by Lee, himself, which
throws a good deal .of light over what has
been hidden for twenty years. It is not ex
actly a confession; it is an expose, a revelation
of tbe whole thing. As toon as the matter
can be got in shape some time in Jan
uary next It Is Mr. Bishop' intention to
publish the entire thing in book form,
the early llre of Lee, his connection
with the Mormon Church, his career at on: of
.the "destroying angels," full accounts of the
different murders perpetrated at the Instiga
tion of the Council, the trial of Lee, testimony,
Ac. On leaving Beaver, Lee gave him a com
munication, requesting him to act as histo
rian, and placing at his disposal all the papsrs
and documents In his possession, and promis
ing to write out in fall air that he knew tend
ing to throw any further light upon the'awfal
tragedy of Mountain Meadows. JThe casejias
excited interest throughout, the country, and
the book'whtch wilkbe'of tbernott surpassing
interest and authentic In every detail, will no
doubt meet with an enormous sale. Bishop
thinks that Lee has been more sinned against
than tinning; that whatever he did do was
dene as an Irresponsible agent In.the hands of
tt power that he believed divine in its dictates
and to be obeyed unquestionably. He is san
culne of success in procuring a commutation
of the sentence, and In the mea'rxime will get
tbe manuscript in shape fot publication during
the comlDg winter.

steady rainfall of the last thirty-six hours thin
Mr. John Campbell, chief engineer ofthe Cro
ton water works, although only about .35 of
an inch of water fell lu Putnam county. He
said yesterday that he was making no efforts
to supply tbe upper stories of the houses with
water, u he knew that to be an impossibility,
but that he was going to furnish a plentiful
supply for the basement faucets, and that so
long as water, flowed from them people need
not fear a water famine. There h at present
in the lakes now-being used a week's supply
of water wilch will naturally now off through
the outlets. Before this U exhausted
steam . rumps will . be. iu position to
draw water' vfroW - those portions of
tha lakes lying lower than tbe outlets.
Lake Mabopac has been lowered three feet,
and yet Its vast body of water is apparently
as great as ever- It, cad, however, be drawn
no lower, In consequence of'an'aa of the
Legislature, which orders Its surface to be
kept within thi limits of high and low water
marks. While Mr. Campbell guarantees to
tbe public a supply of water sufficient for
their needs, he earnestly asks them to assist
him In his efforts In economizing the precious
fluid as far aa possible, i I
. Many persons have spoken to him of the
great wasto'of water by tbe sugar. houses, and
he wishes everybody to know that the great
streams of water seen filling the wasteways in
the neighborhood of these establishments is
salt water, pumped irom the rivers and used
for cooling purposes. S.Y. T. Sun, 8th.

The Jlcrald at yesterday contained a long I

validity of the .returns,-they can have no

previous to that occasion, and the evidence of ;
fraud must be very strong indeed to prevent
the counting of the votes which they may

There Are so Such Rules inExittence-Hon.
John M. Barclay's Opinion.
As there seems to remain in the minds of
tome persons a misunderstanding in relation
to the present status of the joint rules for
the facilitation of business between the two
Houses of Congress, wc give below an extract
ofthe claufc which will be contained in the
next edition of "Barclay's Digest," (now ready
for prcts,) as follows :
"Whenever the two Houses may fall to
adopt for the Corgress the joint rules of a
precedlngCongress, (which frequently occurs,)
it would seem, under the authority conferred
by tbe Constitution upon each House, (Art. 1,
section 5,) 'to determine the rules of its pro
ceedings,' td bc'the undoubted right of each
House, at pleasure, to decline, farther acqui
escence in tbe enforcement of any one or all of
them. And hence, although the joint rales
as acqujeiced In during the Forty-third Con
gress, appear in this 'Digest,' the following
proceedings during tbe firs.t session of tbe
present Congress would seem to indicate that
no joint rules are now in force."
Here follow the proceedings of the Senate
and House on, the subject of joint rules, all of
which was recently published in this journal.
Mr. Barclay stated last evening to a repre
sentative of tbe National RrrCBUCAN that
it Is' his own firm contlction that the former
joint rules are nullities.
The French Press and the Army
The Minister of Justice has just Issued a
circular directing the law.auUioritietof the
Republic to prosecute all journals, guilty of
abusing the army. At Nancy, Perplgnan and
Montpellier officers ,haye7recenlly been in

the tote of the'Radical press, which calls them'
"soldtet of. the Pope 'pasteboard heroes,"
"executioners," "brilliant capltulationists,"
and so on. Ministers evfdently consider It high
time to put a stop to such language, which
encourages insubordination. One paper ad

"Gen. Bourbakl, no one can equal you in get

comparison between the new War Minister

"The Indians, however, have been exceedingly

ambushed and killed, and many depredations

fear that even these hardy and adventurous
miners possess, prospecting has extended over

reducing works'. The absence of water and of
well-defined wall rack to gold-bearing quartz

The trial of NImrod Norris.JFred. Harrl
and Mary Ward, for tbe murder of Richard
Lewii, July last, was resumed yesterday in the
Criminal Court, Judge MacArthur presiding-.
Mr. Mitchell, for tr'-p-ris-jner, Mary Ward,
presented his case to the Jury; arguing; that
the prisoner was absent from the scene at the1
time the deed was commlttM and "that
nothing had been adduced .tcesEow'a mancibas
intention in passing the knife to Harris. r
District Attorney Wellsheii made the clos
ing argument for the 'Government, of which
the following is the substance:
On the morning of the 4th of July last lour
colored men, Taylor, Nelson, Norris andLewtia,
were going down Thirteen-and-a-half street.
All of them had been drinking;, more or less,
but none of them were drunk.
Taylor who had lost one leg, carried in hi
hard a cane, which he was carelessly swinging
backwards and lorward, and In doing sc
struck Nelson a lieht blow on the nose, andte
may have also hit the prisoner, Norris; thaS Is
not certain, although Norris claimed that, he
bad been struck. t
Whether any other cause of disturbanie or
animosity had occurred between the parties
before tbat we do not knew, for the testimdny
begins at the period of time when the parties
were seen coming down Thirteen-and-a-half
street; nor do we know how much time elapsed
between the beginning and tho fatal termina
tion of the transaction; It was certainly but a
short time, hardly half an hour, and probably
not more than twenty minutes.
At all events, blood was Cowing from Nel
son's nose when the parties arrived, In front of
the house on the east side of Thirteen-and-a-half
street, between C and D, where" the
prisoner, Mary Ward, lived, and the four men,
or at least two of them, were quarreling and
having in angry altercation. Precisely what
it grew out or we do not know, except that,
Taylor and Nelsotxhaving gone to the pump, to
get water to wash Nelson, Norris said tlat
Taylor had hit him, too. Richard Lewis, the
deceased, said to the prisoner, Norris, "come On,
I don't want to have any fuss, the blow -was
only accidental." On the part of Lewis there
was at that time no anger; his language and
conduct were friendly, pacific and concilia
tory. -
Norris was, however, in, a different temper.
He replied to the deceased by saying, "You
s n of ab h,wbat have you to do with it. AU
you Washington a s of b s try to Impose Yn
us Baltimore men." Lewis said to Norris,
.i'Don't call me a s n of a b h any more."
Norris said, "Yes, you are a black s n of a
b h." The parties, having stopped before
this, were standing in the street, or near the
curb. Tbey had stood there some time per
haps ten minutes ; one of the witnesses said it
was not more than ten minutes. AU agree that
they stood there quarreling and using offensive
language to each other. Lewis-held in his
hand this short piece of a broom-handle, but
neither Lewis nor Norris had then any other
weapon, so.faras we know. Their manner had
grown more violent, and their language had
become offensive and loud, so much so that
the old man Weeden heard them in his house.
was disturbed by it, or, perhaps, apprehended
a serious encounter between the parties. 'At
all events, be came out, told Lewis and Nor- .
lis that they must not have a fuss before his
door; took tbe piece of broom-handle from
Lewis, and carried it into his own house and
put it behind the door, where it remained n
tU after Lewis had been killed and his dead
body removed to the statlon-hoose.
The loud talking had brought together a
number, possibly eight or ten, of the Inhab
itants of that
Roane and the prisoners, Harris and Mary
Ward, wire among the first. Kate King,
AUce Fitzgerald, Henry Johnson, and
Sarah Poppers were there also at aboat the
same time. Wetden, Blue and Alonzo Perry
came on hearing the cry of murder. Wnat, if
anything, had passed between Norris and
Harris, or Harris and Mary Ward, up to near
tbe time the fatal blow was given we do not
know, but after Weeden had gone back to his
breakfast, taking Lewis' stick with, him, the
prisoner, Mary Ward, went through the door
that leads from the alley into the house where
she was living, and shortly afterwards capo
out to the front door on to the sidewalk wjth
the murderous knife in her hand. Whatever
slight and immaterial difference there mjybe
In the statements of any of the-witnesses a$to
Just what door the went In at or came out of,
there is no disagreement as to these two fatal
facts, that Mary Ward, partly concellfng the
knife in the folds of her dress, or.behina.ccr
apron, brought it from-the .house, nodded to
Harris and slipped .It, into Harris' hand. It
was, in fact, done 'with so much care and
caution that neither. Lewis or Johnson, Who
was talking to the deceased, saw orsajpectel
it. She then Immediately hastened into the
The witnesses who testified to this part'of
the transaction are Kate Kinsy George Koine,
Sarah Poppers ,aikl AUce Fitzgerald,, but ,,no
witness nor any fact or circumstance has from
tbe first to tbe last 'contradicted or suggested
a question as to the absolute truth of- this
statement of Mary Harris in connection with,
this brutal murder.
As soon as the prisoner Harris got the knife
from Mary Ward he, In the same careful, cau
tionary way, siippeu u iuio iorns nana. Ace
peases who saw Harris giye.'the knife .to
Norris are Roane, Poppers, Johnson, King and
Fitzgerald. No witness nsr any fact or cir
cumstance contradicts their testimony. Tbey
agree, too, among themselves in all material
particulars. Henry Johnson alone says that
Norris went to Harris, who was standing in
the middle of the street, and got the knifi.
All ofthe others say that Harris came up be
hind Norris and put the knife Into his hand.
Alice Fitzgerald alone says that Harris said,
"Kill the black s n of a b h; If you don't L
Thus provided with the deadly weapon
the prisoner, Norris, drove "the knife,
with one desperate, fatal blow, Into the left;
side of. poor Lewis' neck. The blade severed
.the jugular vein, passed the edge of the collar
tone and hurled itself In the cavity of the
chest. The horror of that spectacle is' too
awful to be contemplated. Bat what adds
most to its- appalling enormity Is the subse
qtient act of the dying man. Norris left the
knife, as you will remember, In Lewis' neck,
and the latter pulled it out, struck .at Norris
with it, and fell backward a dead man, which
was the. first and only assault he ever at
tempted to make upon Norrts'or any one else,
-to far as we know. "After that Norris fled,
was pursued, captured and he now steads
with his two guilty associates In that horrible
murder on trial, awaiting yoilr verdict and the
judgment of the law upon hit and their atro
cious crime, " ,
You have tbere, gentlemen-a simple narra
tive of the leading facts touching this brutal
homicide. It is aa exact and accurate at I am
able to make It: it is drawn exclusively from,
the testimony given by the witnesses before
you In open court, and it is given without
either argument or illustration of my own.
Its fearful, Irresistible forces come from the
overpowering weight of the facts themselves.
Is it a true statement of the facts, gentlemen I
If it is, what do you say, are the prisoners
guilty or not guilty t There are but
which can be- rendered by you as to e'ither or
all of the defendants. Tbey are eitherr 1.
That all or tome of the defendants are sot
guilty; 2. That all or some of tha defendants
are guilty of manslaughter; and S. That all of
the defendants are guilty of murder. This Is,
you are at liberty, if the testimony warrants
jou In doing so, to find all the defendants not
guilty, or tome oi them guilty and others not
guilty, or tome of th:m guilty of murder, and
others of them guilty of maasltugliteronly, or
all of them guilty of murder. -,.,
