It is said that* the tral of the great con
spirator has been finally settled upon, and
that he is to be arraigned before a civil
Court. In our way of thinking, this is
equal to an acquital. For,at no point where
he can be tried, can a jury be impanneled
where one or more copperheads, or traitors
—and they are one and the same thing sim
mered down—will not be on the panel, and
with one of these on it, a conviction for
High Treason against JEFFERSON DAVIS, will
be impossible. So far, therefore, as the
ends of justice are concerned, the govern
ment may as well set him at liberty with
out the exposure, and mockery of a trial.
If the government granted a civil trial
to DAVIS in deference to copperhead opin
ions, or to stop their abuse, it has not act
ed wisely. The copperheads deserved no
such consideration, nor will any concession
to their views arrest their censures. From
the beginning, they have justified the reb
els in every act and measure projected to
sever the Union ; and as positively con
demned every thing the government did to
arrest their treason. Nothing but her own
strong arm hindered the entire horde of
Northern copperheads from making common
cause with the rebellion. All know this.
Why then, consult them more than 11 1 NTER,
WISE, TOOMBS, or any other open rebel, as
to the manner of their chiefs trial ?
In addition to this, the whole Union sen
timent of the country insists upon DAVIS'
punishment. All the men who were true
in their loyalty to the government, especi
ally the soldiers, believe she will suffer in
her moral and political standing, if she al
lows the rebel leader to escape. On this
ground the enormous bounty offered for the
arrest of DAVlS —and it was through this
that he was secured—was justified. And
what will the Union people say, if the gov
ernment, after offering an hundred thousand
dollars reward for the arrest of DAVIS,
grants him a manner of trial which is sure
to result in his acquital ? Especially too,
when there is no necessity for it. It will
look to many like mockery. To some it
will have the appearance of connivance at
Why change the mode of the trial of the
conspirators ? Mrs. SIRRATT and her coterie,
the humble victims of a fell delusion, have
no chance offered them of packing a jury
that will acquit them. Stern, inexorable
justice demands that they shall hang, and
all the people say amen. Even WIRZ, the
brutalized, infernalized WIRZ, whose escape
—judging from the testimony—seems hard
ly possible before any tribunal, is arraign
ed before a military court. Why is this ?
People will ask,why are these poor wretches,
the victims and tools of the great leaders
j of the conspiracy, tried in this certain way
| of just putiishment, while he who concocted,
i who led, who sustained, who drove the
j whole South into the rebellion, and as com
pared with him in criminality, the SLRRATTS,
PAYNES and HAROLDS, were as pigmies to
giants, is to have a chance to escape the
punishment hp has earned a thousand times,
by a packed jury ? Will the people not in
fer that this advantage to the great crimi
nal is conceded to him, because he is great
and powerful ? That the lowly must suffer
for crime ; but the great, no matter how
villainous, must escape ; and if the people
come to such conclusions, will it be well
for tho'se who subject themselves to the
charge of thus, indirectly to be sure, but
none the less successfully, striving to out
wit justice in this partial way ? Individu
i als may show partiality—partizaus may
; favor any of tiieir own stripe, and govern
ment even, will lie excused for looking
kindly on those who befriend it; but justice
demands fairness, equality, and neither in
dividuals, politicians, or governments, can, \
with impunity, shape and warp the balance
of justice, so that the poor, and lowly shall |
be punished, and the rich and great go
In determining on the trial of DAVIS, the
government waited until the heat of passion
aud prejudice had subsided. This was
right. As the head of that rebellion which
had caused so much trouble, loss, sorrow,
and suffering, the excitement of the hour
against DAVIS, was very great, and while it
made no difference whether he was hung
while this lasted, or is hung after it has
died out, we do insist that in waiting for a
fair and impartial trial, it shall not be so
worked as to lead to his escape. The gov
ernment, the people, and the Union cannot
If DAVIS, who is the only one of ihp chief
conspirators, under arrest, escapes through
a trial,it will not he many years until there
will be another rebellion to suppress. We
already hear intimation of this in the South.
The leaders there, arc in a worse condition
now than at any time before, and if they
can go " scot free " for all their villainies
under the rebellion just ended,what is there
to hinder their desperate straits, from driv
ing them into another ? They have all to
gain and nothing to lose by it ; and the
poor ignorant people can always be lashed
into a fury by the cunning devices of lead
ing men. Let the administration therefore,
beWarc how it lends itself to JEFEERSOX DA
But, on what principle does the govern
ment concede to JEFFERSON DAVIS a trial by
a civil court ? If he is tried for high trea
son as a citizen of the United States, it
must be at Montgomery or Richmond, or
where ever else the acts of treason, for
which he is to be tried, were committed ;
and at such point, a trial would be worse
than idle. WIRZ is tried by a Court Martial
for acts committed against the rules of
modern warfare, and the laws of nations ;
but lie must be recognized as an alien ene
my before he can be so tried. For as a
citizen he would have to be tried at Ander
sonville where his inhuman acts were per
petrated. And how can the government
make an alien enemy of WIRZ, try him as
such, and yet hold DAVIS, his superior in
office, as in crime, and who worked togeth
er under the same government, as a citizen
of the United States ?
SANGUINARY ENGAGEMENT WITH A BURGLAR.
—On Monday tnoruing last about three
o'clock in the morning, Mr. Jas. Wait a
merchant at Hollisterville, was awakened
by a noise in his room, and looking from
his bed where himself and wife were sle< p
iug in the second story of his house, li- .1 its
covered a man endeavoring to open h s Bu
reau drawer. He immediately leaped from
his bed and caught him, one arm around his
body, and the other his throat. The latter
caught an immense pair of false whiskers
and moustaches that gave way at his grasp,
leaving a finger tightly clenched in the rob
bers mouth, a severe struggle ensued, Mr.
Wait holding tightly to the robber, both
went tumbling down the stairs together.
At this the noise and cries aroused the
household, Mrs. Wait a feeble woman first
came to the rescue and as feeble as she was
having just recovered from a Bilious fever,
grasped a foot and held on to the best of
her ability. He had by this time passed
through the sitting room into a narrow en
try when the burglar was still using every
effort to rid himself of the firm hold of Mr.
Wait, at this time his son, some 18 years
of age, came also to his assistance. As
soon as he entered the narrow hall the
scoundrel shot him in the groin, a danger
ous if not a fatal wound, rendering him
powerless. Just then another and elder
sou came bringing a light, whom he also
shot, the hall taking effect in the left shoul
der, but did not disable him, he discharged
two other shots that did not take effect,and
snapped three other caps of his revolver
that snapped fire. The last son also brought
a revolver with him and shot one ball
through the thigh and another slightly
wounding the forehead of the burglar. Ho
then went to the woodpile and found a club,
and vigorously applied it over his the Burg
lars head so that the third blow brought
him down, lie was then at their mercy.—
His son would have dispatched him, but the
After a short time the neighbors were
aroused and such a house is seldom met ;
blood marked the skirmish from the first,
the hall and porch was covered with blood
and torn garments.
A search being made while the robber
lay senseless on the ground, resulted in the
discovery of a dark lantern of beautiful
construction, skeleton keys, a revolver,false
whiskers, moustach, match box, and every
other article necessary for carrying on his
nefarious business. Mr. Wait was struck
several times on the head and face with
the pistol and bruised severely all over his
person, yet held fast until the scoundrel
was finished bejond all danger by the son.
The robber was identified as one of those
who had been about the neighborhood ped
dling linen table cloths.
Mr. Wait had about SSOO in his wallet in
the pocket of his pantaloons. This was
probably taken first, and before he retired
to a lower room. He put a large rag in
the pocket book from which he had taken
This is the fourth robbery that has been
committed in that vicinity within the past
year, and from ten to twelve thousand dol
lars taken, of which no part has been re

learu the robber has so far recovered as to
I be able to give his name, that lie had two
accomplices, and one of them was in the
house when the skirmish commenced, hut
tied and left him a one.
The circumstances con lected with the af
fair should warn all persons to give these
traveling pack pedlars a wide berth and a
speedy dismissal from their premises, for
many of them take that method to obtain
the localities and particulars of houses they
intaud to make a descent upon.— Scranton
OIL!— Not on the brain alone, but in Lu
zerne Co. Mr. Smith informs the Local that
two of the companies engaged in boring
for oil in Fairmonnt Township, have 'struck
ile' one at a depth of 65 feet, the other 107
feet. The difference is that the one bored
through the conglomerate, and the other
was in a position outside of that formation
and of course had a less distance.
Pumps were already at Shickshinny on
the way to the wells and a short time will
prove the value of the discovery. In the
meantime hope is in the ascendant.— HTV/r.s
The Kentucky Delegation, headed
by the Hon. Garrett Davis, obtained an in
terview with the President on Saturday
morning, and urged the removal of Gen.
Palmer with much earnestness. The Pres
ident, it is said, has referred the whole mat
ter to Gen. Thomas for investigation, and
declines to interfere until that officer makes
a report upon the subject.
ROBBERY AND ATTEMPTED MURDER. —One OL'l
the most brutal attempts at murdering an
old man 80 years of age, to get his mom v, !
occurred in York, Livingston Co., lute on j
Saturday night. About 12 o'clock at night
two ruffians knocked at the door of Deacon
DANIEL FRAZIEK, of York—two other accom- j
pi ices standing a short distance off. Mr.
Frazier got up, opened the door and was
struck to the floor with a slung shot—a
stone slung in a handkerchief. Me was
then pounded with a billet of wood on the
face and head, until his face presents the
most horrid appearance—battered to a jelly.
Mrs. Frazier jumped from a window and
ran half a mile to 0. A. Stewart's, and gave
the alarm. The citizens soou rallied and
went to the house, finding Mr. Frazier near
ly dead and insensible from his wounds.—
The robbers had plundered the house and
left their victim apparently dead. Pursuit
was made. At Piffardinia one of the robbers
named Jim Sherwood, was arrested. Two
more were arrested at John Ilulbert's (late
Sheriff) one of which was his hired man- -a
Canadian, another named Chas. lielau was
captured at Fowlerville. Four persons
were engaged in this outrage, and all are
in Genesee jail, where it is hoped they will
remain until the full penalty of the law can
be meted out to them. They had divided
the money at the schoolhousc near widow
Willies' in district number nine. Three
hundred dollars of the money taken was
found with them. How much was taken
from Mr. Frazier is not known, as he is in
sensible and of course unable to give an
account of his loss. One of the villains lias
made a confession detailing the affair,which
is substantially as we have gived it.— Le-
—lt is reported that Mr. Frazier has died
from the effects of his injuries. ll' so the
villains will have to stand trial for murder
as well as robbery.
OFFICIAL AOOOUNT OF THE RAVAGES OF
Foreign mails, received tit the State De

tive to the ravages of the cholera. The
United States consul at Port Mahone, writ
ing under date of September 13th, says
that the cholera at Raima Mayorea lias
carried off many people, and there is no
diminution of the disease. A panic pre
vailed there. The cholera has also ap
peared at Cuidadela. It is now admitted
that about seventy pilgrims died of cholera
at quarantine at Port Mahone, and others
of various diseases. The cholera is repre
sented to have broken out west of Port
Mahone. But thus far tli s scourge seems
to have been confined to the great chan
