"The prisoner Payne to-day, for th
first time almost, appeared to belong to
our common humanity. His bearing has
been throughout most remarkable. He
nearly always sits bolt upright, entirely
unmoved either by anything said or done
in the room, and never speaking to the
counsel : not bold and defiant, but com
posed, indifferent, and self-possessed.
Who is this man ? Has he any friends?
Where did he come from ? What is his
real name ? These questions have been
asked a thousand times, without avail.
To-day he actually asked that three wit
nesses might be called in his favor a
lady and a doctor living at Warrenton,
Virginia, and a minister of the gospel liv
ing in Florida. In the conversation that
ensued, his counsel also said he had sent
Payne's brother to bring the witnesses

That excludes the negroes from tlie

the proclamation goes on to say :
" And the said Convention, when con

hereafter assembled, will prescribe the
qualifications of electors, and the eligibili

Mr. Enrrou: The old proverb that
old things become new, was the other
day verified by us. On last Saturday
being Fomewhat tired of the bustle of
life and village gossip, in company with
an old friend, we took a rural saunter
through the woods and by roads in the
vicinity of the old deserted village of
Huclah, (by the by there is something
venerable and interesting in the word
old, although sometimes much despised,)
until we came to our old fishing place, a
murmcrinsr brook after pursuing its wind
ing course, and agreeably conversing
on the many events of days gone by, we
were suddenly surprised by the mechanic
al tick and pufiing sound of the steam
engine, at first we were disposed to im
agine ourselves under the influence of
Ether, or some other drug, but after sha
king the delusion from our brain and
rubbing our eyes, we discovered that we
were along side of our neighbor Capr.
Murray's old establishment. We how
ever ventured in the lower story, and in
conversation with one of the hands, we
were informed that they had just started
on their trial trip, but to us it appeared
as if everything had been in motion for a
number of years, there was no bustle, t.o
confusion, no noise except one small
steam leak which pave raiher an amusing
warning that it did not approve of its
confined situation, everything else seemed
to know its place and duty, the cog-wheels,
belts, shafts, jmmps and lhe power that
drove them, all acted in union and har
mony with each other and it was very
satiTactory to see this combination of
mechanism go off so smoothly at the start.
It :i!go reflects much credit on the gentle
manly and enterprising owners Messrs.
Do Lang and Dean, whose actions and
deportment have gained for them the re
spect and well wishes of those employed

fsrEOI.U. T'lSPATCII TO TI!K VOIU.!. -
Washixgto-n, June 2.
The evidence in the conspiracy trial to
day was qv.Itc eialiorate, but not of start
ling i;ere-t. The court-room was
erow led to great excess, while the hea!
v.v.s so intense as to render it quite un
eoTnfortable. The evidence is nrawing
rapidly toward its end, but it will no' be
completed to-morrow It is believed the
trial v.iil certainly continue all next
work. Most of the witnesses who have
leen examined have lecn discharged from
imprisonment, and among them Miss
Anna Surratt, the daughter of Mrs. Sur
ratt, who was allowed to sit near her
mother during this afternoon, and con
verse with her through an officer. The
witness-Wek-hmnr, who boarded at Mrs.
Sm ratt's, is also out of prison.
The evidence opened to-day with a
reference to spangler. The lock found
bursied from the box door of the theater
after the President's assassination was
satisfactorily explained, it appearing that
it was forced off in the absence of a key
by one of the clerks of the National
Hotel, some weeks prior to April. The
witness who testified to this fact also sta
ted that P.ooth rented box No. 7 nbou'.
two weeks lefore the assassination.
itnessrs were produced who testified
'2 '10 witness Pitterspaugh repeated
different versions of what Spangler said
and did to him on the rtage a few moments
after the assassination ; but the result was
virtually to the effect that Spanglor struck
him in the face for saying it was P6oth
who was escaping, adding, as he dealt the
blow. " It might be Dooth or anybody
else." The evidence was not very favora
ble for Spnngler. The next interesting
feature of the evidence was tlie theory of
the defense, that Payne, the would-be
assassin of the Seward?, was insane.
Witnesses from P.altiraorc testified to his
singular conduct, in a boarding house
there, and Dr. Nichols, of the Govern
ment Insane Asylum, was on the stand
hree-fourths of an hour, giving evidence
an to tlie conduct of insane people. The
circumstances testified to did not seem to
have a very material bearing on Payne's
status. The evidence was followed by
the production of a letter written " April
G," near Cumberland, Md., and received
at the National Hotel, some time. during
May, directed to J. W. R The writer
of this Htcr shows clearly that lie had a.
knowledge of Booth's contemplated crime.

It was during the si ssjfii of CVn-u-s

Sumner, and Chandler li-t. s,ed with an
attention akin to respect. Anior.ir tfie
aud.Itory there was one who seemed more
than the rt absorb -d in the scene he-fore
him. The Senate adjourned, and Srantox.
hastened from the Senate chamber to one
of the great hotels of Washington, mid
asked to U r-hown to lhe room of the
venerable Governor Medai v, of Oliio.
Scarcely h.-nl he entered w'h.en, with a
voice full of passionate energy, he ex
claimed "Medarv, I have just heard
Davis, and, by ail the gods, he is the
greatest of living statesmen ! The South
is right, and Davis must be the nominee
of the Charleston Convention ; and to se

Governor Medary suggested that there
were certain reasons why such an arrange
ment might not be acceptable to Mr.
Iiuchanan, when Mr. Stanton replied :
I will look to that ; I will be responsi
ble for that ! I will go at once to the
White House, and in two hours from now
I will sec you again."
Medary waited, Stanton returned ; but
fir reasons unnecessary here to jnarrate,
the scheme failed. This was the opening
scene which preceded the rebellion, and
Edwin M. Stanton played the chief role
as the advocate of southern rights, and
the especial friend of Jefferson Davis,
Governor Medary sleeps in an honored
grave, but there arc vet three livin'' wit
pesses lo the truthfulness of this narrative.
One is a State prisoner wko lies in chains
at Fortress Monroe ; another is his jailor,
who declared the prisoners views to be
just, and who sought to place the man he
now holds in irons, in the Presidential
chair; the third and last is the venerated
