Now. we are entitled, without putting the defendant upon the atand, to prove every fact that operated upon defendant' tulnd. We insisted upon intro ducing evidence ae to threats, aa tending to ahow the at te of defendant a fear at tne time of the .hooting. Now, it la for your Honor to take Into consideration whether, if a paiephbTt waa published-reflecting upon defendant's father and famttyrit would not ahow a. malicious disposition of deoeaaed toward defendant's family.

We submit that all (. dence of a motive or reaaoa for a homicide honlii be admitted. After a long argument, which laated for over one boar, Mr. cauiporii aaia : as i understand it. it ia attempted to prov that Cjiarle J Young had brought to thia coast a pamphlet, not mentioning de fendant at all, but, perhaps, reflecting upon bia father. Even if th'a alleged pamphlet waa iuiported here, it would be no evi-denoe of aelf defence. It ia not offered to lie showm that he waa ever eppriaed of the -Importation of thia pamphlet. If any thing dJ affect bia mind, it is the receipt of the I pamphlet: that it waa 4 a acur-tiloua tjaturerand that h bad information aa to deoeaaed a connection with It. The receipt might be admitted, but not th im rmrtatlfn. ' Thia evidence can threw no light upon the atate of mind of the defendant at the time of the .hooting.

Upon inquiry so positive evi dence of anything of tha kind can ba found. When it was reported that a woman was overboard. Captain Hngbes, who waa in command, a topped hia steamer, put out a small boat, but SO OKI OOCLD nl FOUND. Upon questioning those on board, the Captain could find no one who saw any on jump over and ia ofhe opinioo that the whole thing waa a sensation gotten op by soma one on board. A ladjr- weot to the bar and procured aome peppermint and water and then went upstairs. and was afterwards missed by those who bar on the lower deck, and that eeems to be tha whole of tha story. Tha bar-keeper noticed nothing peculiar in the actions of tha woman and she would probably not have been noticed at all ex cept that she was in a part of the boat not ordinarily frequented by ladies. Last week Captain Brown received tha following letter. If it is intended as a C' e it is meaningless, but if any woman been miseed her friends should : immediately come forward aud notify the officers: THI MTBTXRIOVH LXTTZR, March 4,-18il.

At the opening of the last session, the newspapers all agreed that the Republican party, having control of both Houses, would be responsible for tbe conduct of the Legislature.' If ita acts were wis and henificent, it would be well with the Re publican party in the next campaign; if otherwise, it would be bad.. It ia unnecessary to here respect the unanimously. aavage expression of the public press. The conduct of the Legislature has been as bad as possible unspeakably bad. nnpreoe-dentedly, Infamously bad, in one of its branches. Aad bow. according to the area era! agreement at the beginning of the ses sion, it Is net very clear what we Kepubu cans are going to do about it. Governor Perkins ia much troubled in mind, 1 and is sparring for time to get hia head clear, The idea of winding up such an Assembly macbina for another run at public expense. is abhorrent to his moral senses, but the odious act seems -to be- unavoidable. At the time of adjournment most of tbe mem' bers wanted the extra seesion to begin immediately; but -the Governor thought they bad to go home, cool off and get lectured by their several constituencies, be fore commencing an extra session. -An the infliction seems to be inevitable, I do not clearly see what is to be gained by putting on the evil day. it will only add to the general sum of expenditure, an increase of mileage, and since tbe people have to be taxed for the support of a certain amount of political vagabondage, it might have been better to have kept them at tbe Japital, and saved the expenses ol transportation. THE OAKLAND BENRVOLR5T SOCIRTr. I am impressed with the fact that a great wrong has been committed in the recent attack upon the Oakland Benevolent So ciety. It does not appear that the Secre tary has misappropriated any of the funds. his offense consisted t solely for devoting bw whole time and attention to the bum item of the Society. If tbe income of the institution is small, it ia probably not the fault of the Secretary, and the development of the fact ia not at all credit able to the charitable impulses of tbe city; it a noma oe recoueccea, nowever, that toe society ie yet in its infancy, its very exis tence naving been hitherto unknown to a great many kind-hearted and charitable people. As it is one of the outgrowths of Christian civilization, any attempt to cut off ita slender resources and destroy it beneficent influence 'must be regarded as a crime against society. Mr. Sears is to be congratalated that he has not been yet accused of wearing out the old clothes that bave come into his custody, these having been the chief income from popular sourcea. it is indeed unfortunate that ill directed enterprise, from whatever motive, should have thus devoloped ludicrous facts calculated to make our charitable i-eo(Je laughing stocks ou the other side of the bay. THR OUTBURSTS OV KPRING. When Josh .Killings bad come to a cer tain place, be said he waa "aa near Paradise aa he could get by land." So much has been aaid and written about the pbyai cal beauty of Oakland, that I am almost afraid of ridicule in alluding to the worn-out theme. But when taking a long walk yesterday, viewing- tbe R-oryeoue drama of opening spring, with spring already dissolving into summer, I. could not help lifting up my hard and sinful heart in gratitude for the privilege of living out my last days in thu woodmusly beautiful place. The eye fairly grows weary of the bound-less opulence and unbroken continuity of green ana rea ana purple and gold, and longs to fall upon. some contrasting desert place. I am thinking now of what I used to ponder oVer forty years ago in the school-book "The stormv March has come at last. With winds and etouda and etunging skies; I bear the Spirit of tha blast That through the anuwy valley flies." ,And as we crowded around the red-hot stove, and the old log cabin creaked and whistled in the furious wind, and tbe hard-faced old master came round at intervale wjth his tormenting rod, that poor little ugly urchin, with .whom I have since become so well acquainted, thought not that the morning sun wasahedding his brightest glories upon a far-off shore where stormy March had -been transformed to soft and voluptuous June, aad where the child himself was to lie down at last to perpetual rest where leaves bave . no certain time to fall, and flowers do not wither in the north wind's breath.

The smoke indicated that i ta random shot came from the direction of Adam's Point. Whether the shot waa fired by accident or through carelessness ia not known, bat the boy bad a narrow escape. The bullet waa taken from.' the fence aad found to be from a rifle cartridge. Too much care cannot be exercised in the use of fire-anas, even in remote loealitiea.

The BeraWi special says tb rush for plaoe when Hayes came in waa a quiet affair beside ths bvely pressure for the past three days. Garfield has been literally overwhelmed. It has actually beea difficult to stand against or in the crowds that have pressed around him in the White House. . To relieve tbe great pressure he has worked each day about 17 hours. To-day he evidently saw that try ing to reduce thia flood waa like moping np the sea, and at one o'clock h went to lunch and then took -a nap, lea vinz word that he had gone to rest and would see no ons for the rest of the day. The fact is that the strain of the last ton days has been very great, and much rest is abso lutely necessary. He evidently feels that the business of office-seeking ia a kind that will keep and not pf a character which in the general interest of the public" requires speedy action. He is reported a disposed to move with deliberation in ail cases which he does not understand. Sc. I-oails a aid Clralst Experts. Nrw Yokr, March 10th. The Com mercial Bulletin's St, j Louis special says Merchants are quite Jubilant over the in creasing importance of that city aa an ex porter by tbe water route, as illustrated by such incidents as the departure the other day of the steamer Oakland for New Orleans with tbe largest tow of grain that ever descended the MiaeusipiH River, be ing a total of 20,847,900 pounds. This single cargo, we are told, would require 700 freight cars to have carried it on 23 rate freight trains and engine. Freight to New Orleans are much below those for which the railroads can afford to carry, but here the advantage in a great measure ends, because port charges, the cost of transferring the grain from bargeto steamer at New Orleans, together with enhanced marine insurance, and various other inci dentals, bring the total to a point which. other things considered, leave the Missis slppi exporters no advantage ever tbe ex porters of Atlantic porta.
