Atlanta, GAMav 5. Argument in
the Cox case began this morning. The
court room was tilled to its utmost ca
pacity with, ladies and distinguisnea
people from all parts of the State. J udge
Twiggs, of Augusta, opened for the
prosecution.-. He declared the time had
come when every interest of humanity
and of civil law and State character de
manded a more rigid enforcement of
the law. and the outraged people would
hold juries to, a strict discharge of their
duties, under their oaths.. When speak
ing counsel referred to the" great public
interest felt in the case throughout the
.Union. Judge Hillyer stopped counsel
and ruled that argument must be con
fined to the facts of the case from wit
nesses. Hon. Joel Billups, a kinsman
to Cox, opened for'the defense and mov
ed the jurv .to tears by his pathetic deal
ing with the ease. His argument was
to show that Cox's statement gave the
truth of the case and" he shot Alston in
self-defense, Mr. R. S. Jeffries follow
ed for the defense on the same line.

ment was not trne. He said po in vii
dication of his dead commander, for
"Glory is the soldier's pride,
The soldier's wreath Is honor." .
In reply to questions by Hawley, of
Connecticut, he stated that the garrison
of Fort Pillow numbered 577 men, of
whom about 40. percent, were saved;
that about 300 were killed and wounded
and about 250 on the Confederate side.
Remarks were made by Garfield as to
the impolicy of re-opening the subject,
witn tne intimation tnat me omcers
were not so responsible as had at first
been supposed. But, the general im
pression at the time had been strength
ened by the order issued about three
weeks previously by Gen. Forrest, that
if the fort was surrounded the garrison
should be treated 3 prisoner pf war,
but if tlie works wieretoneXio quar
ter might be expected. , He was glad
that so much had been dorie by the geiy

his name from responsibility in the

to Correct an informality, and was then
read as follows : "We, the jury, find the
Erisoner guilty and recommend that he

Cox received the verdict with calm

on hearing the words so fatal to her
hopes, sat for a moment trembling, and
then rushed for the open window near
