the apparent discrepancies were easily recon

He Orel gave an elaborate and lucid exposi

of thh Suprenie Court relative to the various
grades of murder. We have, unfortunately,
had so many trials of this character, that the
distinction between the grades of murder is
generally under.xr --- by our readers, and we
need not here give the opinion of the Conrt at
length. This part of the - charge coneluil-d
with the brief summing up, that if the prisoner,
with a deadly weapon, wilfully, Maliciously,
premeditatedly killed his fellow man it was
murder in the first degree. lf, under the same
circumstances, his intention was only nm do
bodily harm, it was murder in the second de
gree. If there was nu malice—it' the deed wits
committed in heat of blood—if he had no time
after the provocation to ••cool," it was man-
Ile then said that drunkenness was,in law, nu
excuse or palliation for crime. But if the jury
believed that, from intoxication, the prisoner
was in : , uelt a state of mind us to prevent him
forming a wilful, deliberate, resolution to kill,
it.might lessen the grade.
requested the jury to consider the whole
body of evidence offered, applying it to the
law as laid down. Examine thoroughly into
the facts, and find, first if the prisoner did com
mit intirder,second, if he used a deadly weapon.
and third, if they SO found. whether the deed
was deliberate and undiciously, with intent to
do bodily harm, and so determine the degree.
li e cautioned the jury to examine the evi
dence of one v,:tness whose testimony went far
to prove malice, the one from Ohio, whose
statements had been contradicted by several.
they found it unworthy of belief they forrit
till ow it aside entirely, and consider the re
mainder, without reference to it.
The evidence showed that the prisoner was
at a ball, somewhat under the influence of li
quor, an invited guest, and of right. He was
bound to conduct himself with the ordinary
propriety c.t the time awl place. If forgetful
of those proprieties, he had acted improperly,
the managers had a right to ask him to deist;
