Conclusion of Mr. llllNluntin , s Argument
fur the Commenwealta Charge of
Judge McGuhlu--Verdict Of Murder in
Degree—Motion toy itew Trial.
Court opened at 834 o'clock.
Matinkin resumed his argument,
and spoke first of the attempt by the de
fence to show that some one else . had
done all the mischief in that neighbor
hood. He said that there had been so
much Bring into houses that all , men
stood in terror of their lives, so that the
bravest and the boldest feared to
look out of his door when his dog
barked; He : argued that defend
ant bad connected himself with all
this mischief when he threatened to
take the life of this girl, if she would
give him her . . ban in marriage. He
dwelt, with force, On i the enormity
of supposing for a - moment' that ' that
little, simple, truthful 'made/ girl, Mary
Ml:Candlelit; that little, truthful,, simple
country gri t should- have - . committed
perjury. He notedthatcounsel had been
prompted to say that one cif these letters ,
had been taken out of "a yellow cover
novel." . He urged that the defendant
had, not told his counsel What was in
these lettere, so that by cross examine.;
tion they could .have made her admit
that she had mistaken their contents.
To the argument of Mr. Thomism's; that
the Commonwealth had failed to pat'
Emma Zilla slfcCandiess on the stand to
corroborate the testimony of Mary Mc.
Candiess, although they had brought
her to court, and kept her here six
days, he retorted, that the defence should
'have called Emma Zilla. He said noth
ing of the open besot in court, by Com
inonwealth's counsel, that they 'trouki
bring Emma Zilla to exAain the contra.
diotory statements of Mary, who first
said she saw her sister receive these let
ters, that they were sealed and directed
in the hand writing of Taylor Hocken
berry, and afterwards that Emma,Zilla
had read one of them before her sister
received ft. and that she and Emma
Zilla had talked them over since , the
commission of the murder. and that this
was the reason she remembered the con
tents of the fatal letter, which was,-not
given beforethe inquest. ./
The able and eloquent speaker'next
passed to the question of the'Whores,-
abouta of the prisoner. It would be diffi
cult to conceive of more power In put-
Brig together such facts as suited his pur
pose, and ignoring all he did not care to
have remembered. He argued that the
bud of Win. English having slept with
prisoner the night of the murder was very
simpletons, but ignored the' fact that-it
was but* very short time after they went
to bed that Taylor was aroused to go tor,
Mr. ILcaluidless, that hebad been out all
night, giving, word of the murder and ,
that he could pot have made any arrange.l
meat with English without confessing his
crime beibre he was charged with it. Ho
ursedrlito fact that Win. xnade
his inarkand cesildiMilwrite hiss
thelligh tat was thirtphatit fonrl, - wenytilr
of age.;' -Her gave.'
;statement _ of theplaseri that
been in Witier sots*, a l
and that-*homes hadtamilkailbet
were in thas part of the char&anu
not see him. He was-very , ImpresiV
about the influences of theosnettur
and the Christian example :and pre
of prisoner's good old uncle, who
him every Sabbath to church an
prayers at home, and the neglect: o
oner to say hie. John White's teat
wairmade a rock of adamant. lab
he was in church, in% i position to
seen prisoner ' and did not scaliiin,
ing the fact that John did :Mt
whether he had gone to church alt
in company with'others, what was
iu church, or if he : went home alone of
in company. ;
Mr. /11cTunklit went over the testi
mony of the people from the church
with evident and terrible effect. He
commanded intense attention. • The de
fendant had threatened to commit this
crime; it is committed; he is called upon
to say Where he was and makes a false
statement. There is an hour and three
quarters of this fearral night in which
the defendant has not accounted for his
whereabouts; he might have, been seen
by English church, and yet have com
mitted the crime. LThis view is new.]
He traveled over the distances, and
directions, and time, which measnred,
in all the testimony, by the rising of the
moon. He made it appear that prisoner
could have reached the point at which
Isaac; Brannon heard the click after , the
time he left . Mr. Graham's. No word of
the necessary detention in getting , the
gun; no , word of the improbability of
the torisoner goin g _ away round to the op
posite! side of Mr. McCandless' house,
from • Mr. Graham's. It was perfectly
fearful, thisimportance given to the eon•
fused account of this bashful, shrinking,.
prisoner, in the first confusion of being . .
charged with this frightful crime, while
standingtefore the mangled corpse bf
the girl he had madly loved, killed in
the general shooting which had been ;go.:
ing on in the neighborhood, which has
ibr two generations, been in a grand
family light, so that it is described
as a bundle of serpents inextrica
bly entangled and stinging, hissing in

A Good Homestead Law.
The Legislature of Ohio has passed an
act extending the exemption of a 'home
stead from execution: for debt ffonr, five -
hundred to one thousand dollars: This
measure would have stood the - test of
public ' scrutiny if the exemption had;
been still larger. The amendment, in fact,
only carries out the spirit of the original
bill, for, when passed, such basheen the
rise in prices, and the diminution of the
value of the circulating meditim, that five
hundred dollars was fully equal, as a
measure of protection to a debtor, to one
thousand dollars now.
LOOK TO YOUR Funs.—Furs will soon
be laid aside for some eight months, and
it is all important , that until that time,
they should be secured against moths—

so from the destructive inroads of the
moth. The worst thing to be done with ,
furs is to shut them ont of sight from the

air , and .forget them. The next , worse
thing is to put them away damp., Should
they become damp by . exposure to the
