counsel on both sides refused to speak. to or

give terewith the points_sub
tamed to t h e , eoor t, and the charge of the court
POINTS SuourrED BY DEFENVE,
The Court are respectfully-requdsted to instruct
1. That the prosecution was bound to produce the
best evidence of the corpus cicticti that the case ad
mitted of; that such evidenee•Would have been a
post mortem O xus:Siltation of the- body of Unger. by
'experts or surgeons: that this evidence was within
the power of tho prosecution, and having failed to
produce it. there canto no conviction in this case.
2. That as the proseention had the exclusive con
; trot of t h e b o dy, it was not in theipower of the pris
oner to Make tc. host Mottem. examination, and that
in absence ofsuch evidence, when it was in the power
of the prosecution to produce it, raises a doubt which
must acquit the prisoner. • ,
3. That if the shot was fired by the prisoner under
the teem:la w apprehension of loss of life or great
bodily harms and that the danger appeared so immi
nent as to present no alternative of escaping its
consettne aces:but by resistance; then the defendant,
the prisoner at the bar, was excusable, even if it
should appear afterwards that there was no actual
danger , -
A That if the pistol was discharged by accident,
the defendant must bo acquitted. .
CHARGE OF THE COURT.
When the evidence of the Commonwealth and the
evidence on part of the prisoner was closed, the
counsel for the prisoner submitted several points to
the Court to be answered in writing, and praying
that the answers might be filed of record.' Mr. Sharpe
said he thought it would be more satisfactory to the
community, if the merits of the case were discussed.
In this view of the matter the Court concurred, but
Messrs. Brewer, Kimmel!, Kennedy and Stewart,
counsel for the prisoner, positively refused to argne
the case to the J ury. The Court then requested Mr.
Sharpe to proceed and Make his
,argument on part
of Commonwealth, but he declined to do so. for the
ecasou that the prisoner's counsel had refused to
speak on theease. The eourse of the counsel on both
sides, threw 'the whole responsibility on the Court
and Jury. - The first pointof the prisoner is answered
- by instructingyou that the prosecution was bound
to produce the best evidence of the corpus delipti or
of the body of the crime that the nature of the case
admitted of, and that such evidence would have been
a poet morteni examinatien of the body of Linger by
surgeons. :This evidence was, under the testimony
of the case, within the power of the prosecution.
The evidence of Dr. Richards and Dr. Sensenr,tivo]
eminent physicians, that from the external marks of
'a gun-shot wound, without an examination Dolt mo r
tent, there would be reasonable ground for doubt as
to the cause of the death of Mr. Unger, and the law
is that whenever in the minds of the jury, from the
. evidence, there is reasonableground for doubts, the
r doubts operate in favor of the accused. It is requi
red of the Commonwealth to make out their case to
• the satisfaction of the jury beyond reasonable
grounds of doubt, and if you, from the evidence,
come to the conclusion that the case is not so made
out, you should acquit the prisoner.
2d Point. That as the prosecution had the exclu
sive control of the_bnily, it was not in the power of
the prisoner to make a past mews', examination
- through experts, and that in the absence of such ev
idence, when it was in the power of the proieention
to produce it, it raises a doubt which must acquif
the prisoner. This is the law, and is in our opinion
answered in our instructions out tint point of the
prisoner. In reference to the omission to have a
post marts's examination made, we are of the opin
ton that there was great fault somewhere; we can
not tell who is to blame. Mr. Sharpe says he was
sick at the time, which is.trne, and Mr. Stenger, the
District Attorney, says he did not until recently
Schou , that such an examination had not been-made.
It 18 not at this time our duty to inquire who is to
blame for this negligence.
The 3d and 4th points contain the law, if the evi
&nee sustains the views expressed in said points.
Wcwill not go into a discussion of the testimony, as
ithas notbeen done by the counsel on either side,
but submit the consideration of the case to you on
what has teen said.
The case. was then submitted to then jury and
they rendered a verdict of' ". not guilty."

SPARTA, Ga.. March 1864.
DEAR SIR: Your letter of the 27t.b. and the check
for 4;100, were delayed by my aIIACLICC on a trip for
ruy health. which was seriously threatened. Both
have reached me here. On my return I win nego
tiate the draft, unless prevented by a recent law for
bidding all traffic in U. S. currency. I hope to do so
without Violating this law. Unt even if I cannot, I
will still supply these gentlemen. to my last dollar,
so that their friends may feel easy as far as my ef
forts can make them. I tried to get Dr. H. and Mr.
C. paroled before I left, and hope it may have been
4one by this time, and that they are now with you.
If so, give them my kind regards. Be assured that
any thing I can do for any of my former friends
there, will be done with pleasure.
I am your* truly,. T. V Moons.
Mr. James if. Prount, Chaliekereburg,
TOGr.THER:AGAIN.—The notice pnblished by
- Mrs. Grayson, a refug&i. from Virginia, a few
-weeks since, desiring information as to the
whereabouts of her husband, who was compell
ed to abandon his home in 1862, has, says the
'I Waynesboro Record, been the means of bring
ing_ the couple together. The notice was copied
into the Baltimore American, and', coming to
the notice of a friend of Mr. G., near Sharps
bqrg, Md., he was at once apprised of it, and the
si..lxt morning set out for this place. When"
within about 2.# miles of town he was observed
by lira. G. from the house at which • she was
stopping, and • consequently their first meeting
after so long a separation was upon the public
road. That it was a joyful one the reader earl
well iMagine. They are represented as a worthy
and intelligent 'couple, and have been. kindly
and-hospitable treated by the family with which
she had been staying. • . ,
DELEGATES ELECTED:—The Union Cifimmit_
tee of Franklin county, met at the (Ice of John_
Stewart, Esq., the Chairman, on Saturday lust.,
Cul. F..S. Stumbaugh was selected as Senato
rial, and Hon. John. Rowe as Representative
Delegate to the Union 4 State COnvention.—
*mars. Benjamin Chamberi, John E. 'Crawford
and H. 8. Stoner were selected as Congression
al Conferees to elect 'district delegates to -the
Union National Convention. No iUst:uctions
were adopted by the Committee, but the Dele

rif President Lincoln.
NEW FASHIONS.—The spring bonnets are
out, and look for all the world like church
steeples, with cabbage gardens in- the upper
story. There's no use in mincing matters. The
- .cords of stuff worn on the heads of " lovely
women" is a nuisance. A man will get no
sight for his money-at a public gathering this
inifnmer. We have a groat respect and love

THE PAYMASTER COMING.—Major W. M.
Wiley, Payniaitter, has given publio notice that
Major Stryker will be in Chuml)ersbgrg on the
3d of May next—Tuesday of next week—to pay
the`militia companies of Captains Montgomery,
Wingert. Fletcher, Criswell, yster, Houser,
and Taylor ; at M'Connellsburg on May sth,
to pay the company of Captain Sellers, and
at Shippenslihrg on the 7th, to pay the companies
of Captains Middlecoff and Bryson. He will
al&o be at Oakville on the 10th-and Carlisle on
the 12th fox; the same purpose. , • ,
' CoßanctioN.—The Fulton Republican cor
rects oar statement in last week's paper, that
Fulton has ratified in advance • the Senatorial
delegate to he chosen by Franklin. FUlton
simply waivid all claims to it. As Franklin is
clearly entitled to it, however,. it • amounts to
about the same tbing, for Adains will doubtless
.do as Fulton did—she having had the Senatorial
delegate two years ago.
NEW RAILROAD PROTECT.—The; 6oppany
who recently piiiehlised the -Monti l Alto Iron
Works contemplate constructing a railroad from
that point to Scotland, on the Cumberland Val
ley. A bill incorporating the company for the
purpose has already passed the. House, and no
doubt will be concurred in by the Senate, so
that the work will likely be commenced in a
very short time.
AcctnENT.—Dr. Brotherton, Sr., ofWay 7
nesboro', says the Record, met with an accident
on Tuesday evening a week; from the effects of
which he has since been lying in a critical situa
tion. The Dr. has been infirm for many years,
and was in the act of turning round on his pave

and causing a severe contusion.

J. S. NrzoN, Druggist—Sir: Having used your
Horse and Cattle Powder for the past two years, I take
pleashre in stating that it has fully sustained itself.
I find that I can with its use put up Cattle for mar
ket in a shorter time and with less cost in grain than
I did before 1-commenced using it. I consider it of
the greatest value for nit kinds of stuck, putting
them in the best condition without pampering. 1
hereby recommend it to all stock raisers.
Tilts Powder has gained a reputation second
to none in the country. it is now beingsold in large
quantities. Farmers can see the value of it and
importance of having it constantly by them. Mr.
Ebersole is one of our most enterprising farmers,
and knows the value of it.

MORTON'S ' GOLD PENS are now• sold at the

This is entirely owing Co the manufactiirer's im

business and Crib.-in-Advance system; for, until he
commenced advertising, his business was done on
Credit, and strictly with the trade.
The Morton Gold Pens are the only ones sold at
old prices, as the makers of all other Gold Pens
charge the Premium onlaold,GovertimeutTax, &c.
but Morton has in no case changed his prices, whole

the world during the past few years, not one in a
