T he L ate V erdict at W ash
ington .— The telegraph has an
nounced the result of the trial at
Washington of Miss H arris , for de
liberately shooting down Mr. B ur
roughs , a Treasury clerk. 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.
