till 12 o'clock. •
On reassembling at 12 o'clock, Col. Suniner's
defence wee read by bin counsel, Judge Watt..
The accused said ho wished to impress the
court _with the idea that ihe nets specified as
conaiiihting an offence against artieles,of war,
were not the product of a sudden' emergency
or the expression af - paesion, but were, on the
other hand, the result of deliberate ooneiderii-
tion and the conviction of ahsolute necessity.
lie then proceeded to meet the-charges in de
-Mil. Ho denied that he had made a personal
affair with - Gen; Harney out . oran official mat
ter, on the ground that the mere presence of
the court martial did not protect an individual
from the-consequences of misconduct, nor that
the inquiries of a court 'martial, addressed to
an individual, could justify the expression of
malignant or ignorant -passion. He 'denied
that-the place in which an_indlvidual stood
could cover him_with_officiaLproteotien, and
argued that an individual called to account
for slanders thus uttered; could not successful
ly plead thekiceurt Mae a:witness. of his of
fence. - •
The question put by the Court to Gen-Har.
ney was, whether he entertained_ predjudice
or bias against the aaoused, to' disqualify him
'as a member of the Court. The question was
simple, and could have been fully answered
by yes or no.. But Gen. Hominy seized the oc
casion to abuse the minds of the Court and in
sult the acouted, by declaring thrit , hediad be
fore charged the accused with ungentleMardike
and , unoffioerlike conduct, and had Mile or no
respect forhlatas a'aoldier, and that the no
cured would have been tried for the offence,
if improper and untrue statements had not
been made by'him to-the Seoretarri,of War.
Gen. Harney when appealed to by the welted
to relieve him front the asicneation: of false-'
hood, wrapped himself up in the - sileniur'of
insinuation. Col. Simmer then, appealed. to
each and every member of the cabinet, wheth
er he did not owe to himself, his family,' his
friends and the army, the act of propounding
to Gen. Harley the question contained in his.
letter of the 18th-of January. .He denied that'
the letter contained. metier for charge, trial
end conviction, on the ground that Gen. Har
ney's declarations were neither official or prop
er, and !bat this letter afforded him the op
portunity to do what belonged to every honorti
ble gentleman and soldier to do. '
