That result was a verdict of acquittal, on ** »Ueged plea of "moral insanity." Infidelity Oil the part of deceased trt . h,s marriage engagement with the " em,tIS hysterical and high spirited damsel, was the instigating cause which prompted her to commit the deed, fihe was tried, acquitted, and wen* ™ Imr way rejoicing; but the 10Î1S point in tlî6 CaSO IS pUt in the forin of itu interrogatory by the Na tional Intelligencer : "Are lunatics to be allowed to go abroad and mingle iu society after conviction of insane impulses, which have actually led the victim« to commit homicide V Miss H arris was uot without her sympathizers and some of them, after her discbarge, went so far as to lion ize her into a position of doubtful erni nonce. This, the Intelligencer re bukes in the following manner : "We do not complain of this ver dict ; on the contrary, we feel bound to accept it as a righteous and hu mane judgment, because it is the voice of the law. But, we do object to making either "lions" or "lion esses" out of homicides, however ex cusable such may be. The force of examples, as the history of crime tearfully tells us, stimulates ninny a vile person to things of like despera tion, in cases where "insanity" is simulated as a pretext for crime, the conviction in bad females minds be ittg that woman, by virtue of her sex, has only to forge or to exaggerate a tain of love or outraged honor, and that she will thus not only secure immunity for homicide, but likewise create quite an enviable sensation. Effects of this kind upon public morals are, to say the very least, not good." Many of the leading journals of tile North are severely criticising the history of this memorable trial and ri'probatiug the verdict, as not alto gether confined to the rules of law and evidence, but as manifesting an undue partiality for the "softer sex," èven in cases where palpable crime is shown to exist. Au important question arises in reforence to the rapidity with which intelligence can be transmit ti'd over the Atlantic telegraph, should it be successfully laid. There will be nver two thousand miles of cable to he operated as one circuit. At the outcot, the company claimed that it would transmit sixteen words a minute. The longest submarin* cable uow in operation is a portion <if the Malta and Alexandria line, about six hundred and fifty miles in lengths the entire line being about one thousand three hundred and fifty , n i] e g. When this has been worked as one circuit, four words per minute jÄSÄÄ fifty mile circuit alone has carried fifteen words per minute. The re tarding influences in the transmission of magnetic currents through sub marine cables seem to increase greatly as the length of the cable in creases. A writer on this subject says : " The phenomena ot the Leyden jar is developed in all submarine telegraphs in proportion to the length of the cable. When the conducting wire is charged by an electric bat tery, the negative of that charge en circles the cable, and produces what is called ' inductive retardation.' Be sides this hindrance, we must con sider the force of the earth's mag netic currents, and of this phe nomena we know but little." We have no data by which to de termine the measure of this retard ing influence in tbe transmission of messages through a submarine cable the length of that now being laid. Some predict that it will be eo great as to render the line useless, or, at least, nearly so, from tbtj slowncs* with which it must he operated.
