A SiiltillT niSAPPMEllEnSlON,
The Raleigh News and Obseryer, and
the Greensboro Tatriot, noting the ru
mor published in this paper of the fail
ure of Mr. Best and the Boston Syndi
cate to meet their first payment, accord
ing to agreement, on the lease of the
Atlantic and Nortn Carolina Railroad
misapprehend the position of The Ob
server, if they suppos we are "mak
ing merry' over the failure of such a
"great enterprise." The fact is The
Observer wishes all such enterprises
well, but doubts the ability of Mr. Best
to carry any such attempt to a success
ful issue. We have no confidence in his
professions nor in his ability to do what
he nretends he can do. If that road is
ever built from Goldsboro to Salisbury
it will be by some one else, and not by
Mr. Best, who thus far ha3 been distin
guished only by the abundance of his
promises, and by his utter failure to
carrv them out. His proposition to
build the Midland road was based on
the contingency of getting possession
of the Western North Carolina Rail
road and be stands about as much
chance of doing that as he does of going
to glory in the flesh.
As a warm advocate of internal im
provements in the State, and in favor
of any and every work which tends to
her development, we would rejoice to
know that Mr. Best had the capacity
to stfrry out the schemes he projects,
and realize one-half the hopes he has
inspired in those whose confidence he
gained, by assurances which he has not
made good. If North Carolina depends
upon Mr. Best for a road that will con
nect her moiintais with the sea, she will,
we fear, wait a long a very long time.
We assure our worthy cotemporaries
that we would much rather chronicle
the completion of such a work than its
failure, and will be glad to learn that we
have been mistaken as to the ability and
intentions even of Mr. Best.
or twenty years of active hie we
have been battling for North Carolina
and North Carolina s interest, and we
point with pride to the record of our
lire-work, lnere may be snort com
ings but they are errors of the head
and not of the heart. Because we do
not see success in an adventurer like
Mr. Best: because we have had the
manliness to say just what we thought,
and what the people will all find out
after a while, there are 'those who
would decry us.
The building of a grand trunk line
through the State, to connect the Wes
tern portion of the State with a sea
port of our own is an idea worthy of
the ambition of any man, but to-day it
is theory merely. With the North Car
olina Railroad and the Western North
Carolina Koad in working order as
they now are, the business man who
would put his money into another road
between Gold3boro and Salisbury,
would be little better than an idiot. It
might be patriotic.but railroads are not
built these days out of patriotic senti
ment. The North Carolina Railroad
cost four millions and the Western
North Carolina Railroad has already
cost six millions 01 dollars; six per
cent on this sum would be six hundred
thousand dollars, to say nothing of
running expenses. Does any sane
man suppose for an instant that a line
projected and built as a competing line
to these roads would ever pay a dollar
of dividends ? On the contrary it could
not pay the cost of operating it, to say
nothing of interest on its cost. No
legislature would ever dare to vote
dollar towards its construction, nor
Would any good business man ever in
vest a dollar in it. If these be facts
then why not brush away the thin veil
of pretention put up by Mr. Best and
his friends to hide them until the time
comes to unload? If to do thi3 be
"jaerry making" then we do not under
stand the power of the Englinsh lan
guage. Aye, more, "It this be treason,
make the most of it."

The hanging of Guiteau cannot be
an immediate matter, as most people
seem to think. Under the law he can
not be hanged until thirty days after
the opening of the next term of the
court. This will not be until the 4th of
April, and therefore the date of Gui
teau's execution cannot po3sibly take
place until the 4ih of May.

Speaking with Mr. McGehee yester
day about the results of the Atlanta
Exposition and the noble snow our
State made there, he said it was in
truth cause for pride. But said he,
though the Department of Agriculture
feels such pride in tnis, yet there is an
other bit of its work the past autumn
which has been even more prolific of
good results. In response to an inquiry
aa to.what this good bit of work was,
Mr. McGehee said that early in the au
tumn, seeing the work of the drought
with the crops, the department issued a
circular in which the necessity for put
ting in heavy crops of small grain, par
ticularly wheat, was strongly urged
upon the farmers. They were told that
these crops would supply necessities
and that they should be sown up to the
last moment. The press of the State
took up the idea and repeated the ad
vice. Now as a result we have one of
the largest if not the largest grain crop
ever sown in the State. In many coun
ties the increase, as compared with last
year, is two, three and four hundred
fold, while some counties actually re
port it a thousand fold. Wheat was
put in the ground up to the last availa
ble moment. This was the case iu
nearly all parts of the State, and where
the work of the drought bad been the
worst the largest crop has been sown.
The reports further indicate that the
small grain crops look well, and the in
dications point to an abundant harvest
next year. Cotton fields were sown
down in the grains, and in some coun
ties very large areas of cotton lands
are now green with wheat and oats in
vigorous growth. In traveling twenty
miles in North Carolina, at any given
space between Raleigh and Charlotte, a
traveler sees more wheat than m the
course ot a day s journey through
boutn Carolina and tieorgia.

At 12o the Sherman funding bill
was proceeded with, Mr. Garland hav
ing the floor.
Mr. Garland argued to show that the
relation of banks to the government
was that of mere fiscal agents, and that
Vest's amendment was a logical and
legal sequence of funding. He was
not wedded to the idea of the three per
cent, bond, but was willing to take the
assumption of saving 61,000,000 annual
ly, for what it was worth.
Allison inquired for information
whether upon Garland's construction
of its language Vest's amendment ma
king the new bonds the sole basis of
bank circulation, would require the
banks having Z per cents, on deposit
to surrender these and take three per
cents.? He did not so understand it
Mr. Garland: we will try to make it
broad enough to cover that.
Plumb renewed his amendment so
as to require the use of all funds now
in the treasury for the redemption of
u nited states notes in excess of 8100.

cents., sucn redemption to be made in
not less than three installments, and
the said sum of 9100,000,000, so left in
me treasury, snail not be increased or
diminished except in redemption of
United States notes. He also gave
notice of additional amendments, and
proceeded to argue that upon anv
calculation of interest the government
would now lose more than it could
realize by an attempt at refunding
Replying to Allison's inquiry. Vest
explained that his amendment did not
apply to bonds held by banks now ; it
merely applied to banks now ia exis
tence which seek to increase their cap!

which seek to go into business after
that date.

Washington, D. a. Jan. 12. The au
dience which assembled in the court
room this morning to listen to the ar
gument to the jury in the Guiteau case
was a large and intelligent one, which
entering the room at an early hour
waited patiently the arrival of the court,
counsel and prisoner.
The marshal gave the spectators due
notice that no one would be permitted
to leave until the hour for recess, and
for the purpose of emphasizing his re
marks fie ordered that the main door
should be locked.
At 10 0 clock, sharn. the jury entered
and a few minutes later the court was
called to order.
Davldge then took his position in
front ot the jury and opened his speech
with a disclaimer ot any intention to
make a tt speech but expressed his
simple desire to render the jury what
aid he could in their present solemn
The time had now come in this trial
when the jury were to become factors.
Whatever disorder or levity might have
characterized the trial, there was but
one sentiment in respect to the conduct
of the jury. All commended their dig-
nlned deportment and their patient and
close attention to the evidence, and he
could not doubt that, as they bad re
ceived the commendation of all in the
fiast, they would continue to deserve it
n the future by their decision of the
question before them.
There is here, gentlemen, (he contin
ued) but a simple point for discussion
and consideration. The subject of it is
insanity. The court will tell you that
in this land of law it is not allowable
for a man coldly, deliberately and
treacherously to slay another, and then
to say he had no malice. The court
win ten you wnen it comes to charge
you that to constitute the crime of
murder the existence or malice is
wholly unnecessary, and that, indeed,
a crime committed is innnltely worse
in the absence of that element than if
it was present In the beginning of the
trial (as you all will recollect) an inef
fectual attempt was made in tbe direc
tion of showing that the death of the
President was attributed to tbe treat
ment by the surgeons who attended him
with so much fidelity and ability. Tbat
attempt was short lived, however, and
was very speedly abandoned, so tbat
there is now but a single question for
you to determine, and that is the ques
tion of insanity. In the progress of
the trial very many vague and general
expressions have crept into the case.
v e have heard of crazy men, of men
off their balance, of insane men, and
hence it was necessary to apply to the
court for a clear and perspicuos defi
nition as to what is insanity in a legal
sense. Medical experts have denned
insanity from the stand-point of medi
cine, and it was necessary to have it
defined from the stand-point of law.
Even if the man be deficient in intel
ligence it does not follow that he shall
be permitted to commit murder with
impunity. It takes one degree of intel
ligence for a man to make a contract
another to make a will and another to
do any other act. But when you come
to crime, such a crime as we
have here, murder, "murder most
foul and unnatural," the law re
quires a very slight degree of intelli
gence indeed, it was, gentlemen, in
order to make the question perfectly
clear, and to abridge your labors so far
as to prevent you being led astray by
the introduction of irrelavent matter
that the prosecution asked the court to
state succinctly what constitutes malice
and insanity in legal intent. The court
has spoken, and it has not spoken in
any vague or ambiguous language. It
has laid down two instructions for
your guidance, which I will now read.
Mr. Davidge read Judge Cox's instruc
tions No. 1 and No. 2.1 In commenting
on tbe first and second instructions, Mr.
Davidge said, "that is, gentlemen of
the jury, if any human being has any
degree of intelligence which enables
him to understand the act he is doing,
and if he has sense enough to 'know.
and does know, that that act is in vio
lation of tbe law of tbe land or wrong;
then, no frenzy, no passion, will afford
any excuse whatever; then, no disease
of his moral nature will constitute any
excuse whatever; then, no belief, how
ever profound, though the man through
reason and reflection may reach the
conclusion that the act is the sugges
tion of, and commanded by Almighty
God, will afford any excuse whatever
for tbe perpetration of crime. His sole
and exclusive excuse is disease of the
mind, obliterating the sense of differ
ence between right and wrong and ab
solutely controlling the judgment and
reason or the party. Thus you will see
that the degree of reason necessary to
make a man responsible is very limited
indeed; thus you will see that a man
may be here who has been styled a
crank, or off his balance, and even par
tially insane, and yet abundantly
responsible ror tne crime, w hat is the
acv committed here? murder. Murder
by lying in wait, what is commonly
caned assassination.
as Mr. Davidge traced the process
of reasoning by which the prisoner
gradually, reached the conviction that
"but one little life interposed between
himself and possibly a great benefit,
Guiteau became restless, and for the
first time since the opening of tbe court
indicated by his nervous twisting about
the usual preliminaries to a series of
interruptions, which in this instance
quickly followed "hot after,"
Said Mr. Davidge, no where "in the
records of heinous crime do we have
such plain and pointed evidence as to
the first conception of the crime. In
this case the suggestion came to the
wretch in thenight as he was lying in
his bed."
"It came to me when the Lord got
ready to have it," snarled the prisoner.
Davidge continued, "this thought or
suggestion came to him on the 18th of
May. Still thinking that he might ob
tain the office he sought, and keep his
naoas ciean, ne made another effort on
the 28th of May to induce the Presi
