It is not unfair to conclude, the.efore,
ibflt 'tho parties who may escape, should
publicity be given to the proceeding," are
"parties" of un inferior degree of guilt,
mid noivn ithiu the limits of the United
States, and if so, we cannot help saying
Chat it is for various weighty reasons to be
regrcttod that their capture should be
deemed either so important or dilGcult, as
lo be made the pretext or occasion of in
troducing into our criuiinil precodure so
oxltaordinary an anomaly as trial by
military commission for a capital od'etise
with closed doors, and with an
oalliof lecrecy imposed on all persons
taking part in tho proceedings. We
think it would have been infinitely better
'to have potlroned the trial till all publioi
ly could do no harm, even if that period
were liki ly to bo six months distant, than
introduce into this country so novel a tri
bunal, and one so repugnant to the spirit
of our institutions, as that which it now
sitting at Washington. It is one for

all the circumstances, it would be difficult
to imagine a position more humiliating
and embarrassing than that in which ths

frivolously made. Nothing will prevent,
however, the spread of such A p txip-

After a fortnight's painful labor, costing
the trouble of writinc no one knows bow
many letters, a trip lo Pittsburg, mid ono
or I no v iits to town of the veracious Ja
cob Head, the Jacobin organ of lust week
contained what purports to be a reply to
the letter of Capt J. S. McKiernan which
