The Prisoner ftud Guiity of Minier in the Second Degree—A X >t»n to 8« the Ver dict Aside. When the Marshall county Circnit Cburt convened ywterday morning, Judge Boyd at once proceeded to deliver his in structions to the jury in the Johnson murder trial. Nearly an hour was con sumed in this business, the jury retiring 1 to their room about ten o'clock. Theie was a large crowd in the court room dur ing the morning and the interest in what was going on was great It was the gen eral opinion of those who had followed the trial from the beginning that a verdict of murder in the second degree would be re turned and such proved tobe the case. Af- j ter being out five hours and a quarter, during which time the court house was temporarily deserted by a large portion of the audience, the jury returned to the court room, when, after the usual formalities had been gone through with, a verdict of guilty of murder in the second degree was rendered. The pris oner, during the interval from the appear ance of the jury to the adjournment of Court, labored under the most intense ex citement and seemed to be almost uncon scious of what was going on about him. After the verdict had been announced, Captain B. B. Doveucr, of counsel for the prisoner, made a motion to set aside the verdict, for reasons which be promised to present to the Court this inoruiug. The penalty for murder iu the second degree is cootinemeut in the peuitcutiary for five to twenty years, at the discretion of the presiding Judge. ÜX1TKD STATES COURT. The Uran«!

This is not the first time Mr. 3'Neill has visited this city and the au lience last night was a glowing testimo nial to the reputation which lie has created or himself. He appears at hisbetit in the ^personation of the hero of Dumas' great xrork and enters fully into the spirit >f the aathor. Either as "Dantes," 'Bosoni" or "Monte Cristo, he never for in instant loses his idea of the individual ; with a manner dignified yet replete with orce and expression he interprets the :haracter in a masterly manner. He is ibly supported by a well selected com pany, each member of which is good. Mr. irthur LeClereq as "Danglars'' was a ittlc too violent in the first act, but »me ont strongly in the latter part of the »lay.

Assessor Robert Phillips, and thefiheriflTs deputies have made np the footings of the State liceu.se tax collected in Ohio county for the first six mouths of the present fiscal year, and the result is a total of over twenty-five thousand dollars. The exact figures are $*25,083,08, as compared with $21,606,84, last year. The increase of nearly four thousand dol lars is mainly caused by the increase in the State liquor license from $100 to $150, which was put in operation this year for the first time. The sum collected from Ohio county is said by those conver sant with the situation to be nearly or quite one-half of what the entire State will be called upon to pay, as there are but about twelve license counties in West Virginia, and of the total number Ohio is by far the most important in this regard. The snm collected from our pèople would have been considerably larger, had not three prominent wholesale liqour meu, paying $1.» license each, gone out of busi ness during the early part of the year. As we have said, the total given above is for the past six months, lint it by no means follows that a further snm of twenty-five thousand dollars, or auything like it, will be sent in for the remainder of the fiscal year. On the contrary, the sum to be hereafter certified to the State au thorities will be less than one thousand dollars, and probably not over five hun dred, as altout everybody liable to the tax has been assessed. The money will be forwarded to Charles ton about the 10th of December. BKLLA1RE. Several private parties are on the tapis. Samuel Kice is very ill with typhoid fever. Wm.
