where, before the war, the' Whig party
largely predominated, and the antipathy
to the Democratic party was strong.
But whatever the Reeling against the
Democratic party may have beeain
those days, and whatever latent feeling
of dislike may yet linger, these people
know that they are indebted to the
Democratic party for their redemption
from Radical misrule and oppression,
and until the Democratic party has
demonstrated that it is unworthy of
their confidence they will continue to
stand by it and sustain it. The Demo

what he had spent for cash fares, and
promised to pay up the remainder as

There has not been an election with
in ten years when the independent
move was not tried, moite or less, and in
nine cases out of ten proved signal fail
ures, always failures unless supported
solidly by the Republicans. It will b&
so in the contemplated move to which
reference has been made unless, there
be some fearfully bad management
within the Democratic party.
There is as yet no man publicly men
tioned or identified with this so-called
new movement; who has any
thing that might be called a State in
fluence or much more than a local repu
tation. There are none who have
demonstrated the ability of large lead
ership, and none that can do more than
play a subordinate part in the co-operative
game as planned and directed by
the Radical leaders. It will take a big
ger man than any yet mentioned to
revolutionize North Carolina, though
under certain circumstances they might
help the Radicals to carry it. If they
do, it will not be from their strength,
but simply from the fact that the mar
gin between the parties is small, and a
change of but a few votes might turn
the scales. To what extent this may
be done, of course depends upon several
causes, and chief among them is the
effectiveness of organization and the
sinews of war, upon the latter of which
the independent movers are relying to
a great extent, and which probably will
be supplied by the Republican political
purse-furnishers at Washington.
The Times, and other papers which
fancy they see in this movement a
break-away from the Democratic party
mistake the magnitude of it, for this
move has been confined to a few self
constituted leaders, and the people have
taken but little or no stock in it.

Washington, Jan. 18. Mr. Scoville
resumed bis argument to-day, taking tip
and 3Xseus8ing the statistics of insane
criminals wbieh had been introduced in
evidence by the proscution and claimed
that'this evidence was of the greatest
benefit to the defence. I .:
Discussing the horror of , crime as

brought to'trial,-but 1 tell you,' gentle
men.of the jury .that back of this prose
cation is Influence which I have felt
ahdwhichyou inay feel, gentlemen,1
before this trial is ended. . There are
politicians who seek to hide their own
shame behind the disgrace of this poo r
prisoner and make him a scapegoat for
their crime. I did nob Intend, gentle
men of the jury, to take up this feature
of the case, but when I find the power
and influence of this government used
against me in denying me the small
pittance that I have asketl.a fair and
impartial trial, and the small facilities
needed for a proper defence; I do not
propose to keeep quiet, I say, that such
men as Grant, Conkling and Arthur are
morally and intellectually responsible
for this crime. Conkling, shall not es
cape, snail not snirk tne responsiDuity
of the state of things that led to this
act. He shall not escape the condem
nation of the American people if I can
help it, for his share in the disgraceful
scramble for office that led to a conflict
with the chosen ruler of this great na
tion and led this poor, insane man to
compass what they would have hailed
with satisfaction, and as would proba
bly hundreds of other poHticans, if it
could occur other than through assas
sination, the removal of President
Garfield who stood in the way
of their unrighteous and disgraceful
struggle for office. Neither shall Grant
escape that condemnation to which lie
is so justly subjected when coming
from Mexico, and coming with undue
haste, he threw his own name into a
petty quarrel about a small office in the
Republican party and sought to foment
the differences that had sprung up. I
am not going to see the misdeeds of
these men high in office visited upon
the head of this poor insane man if I
can help it. This clamor for his blood
is not for the purpose of avenging Gar
field, or of satisfying justice; but their
theory is this: if it can be shown that
this was the act of a sane man then
these politicians in high places will say
of course we are not responsible for
the act of a sane man. To be sure we
had some differences, but then it eould
never have led a sane man to do such
an act. But, on the contrary, gentle
men of the jury, what is the effect of
your verdict if you acquit him as. an
insane man ? Why, the people will say
some one is at fault; they will say we
will fix the blame upon the heads and
hearts of those men who waged war
upon our poor, dead President until It
drove this poor, insane man, from read
ing daily what Grant says, what
Conkling says, and from constantly
thinking upon it, to his insane act of
killing the President, and these men in
high places, the really culpable ones,
will go down to posterity with a stigma
upon their names and the detestation
of their countrymen fastened upon
Mr. Scoville's denunciation of Conk
ling and Arthur created a profound
sensation in the court room. As soon
as the recess was announced Mr. Sco
ville was Burrottnded by ladies and gen
tlemen and congratulated upon his
"fearless exposition." One gentleman
exclaimed, "That's the correct senti
ment, and four-fifths of the American
people are behind you On that." The
recess hour was enlivened by several
heated discussions in the corridors and
upon the outside on the general ques
tion of the moral and intellectual re
sponsibility as set forth by Mr. Sco-ville.'
During the recess Mr. Scoville re
ceived the following telegram :

towards the South as any paper pub

"There seems to be a decided move
ment in progress in North Carolina to
take that State out of the Democratic
column. There is good material to work
upon, and if tne proper course is pur
sued the effort would doubtless meet
with success. It cannot be done, how
ever, on any such dishonest issue as that
which Mahone has used to advantage
in Virginia, nor can it be done if the
people of the State have any reason to
suppose that a departure from the con
trol of the Democracy means a return
to the plundering and disgraceful re
gime of the carpet-bagger. What the
people of the South want, if they want
any thing different from what they have,
is an independent and honest adminis
tration of all their affairs, local and

undoubtedly willing to vote for, regard

American commissioners had leftXima

Great expectations nad been ouuc up
on the arrival of these gentlemen by

statu quo. Very little else than the vis
it of the commission and its probable
results is talked of on the coast at pres
ent. It is not believed that Chili will
be so rash as to threaten war with the
United States, yet a serious misunder
standing between the two is looked up
on as probable unless the diplomacy of
Messrs Trescott and Blaine proves
equal to the emergency. The Chilians
are in a bad temper and require sooth

this surplus to extinguish - the; debt at
the rate of $100,000,000 "'per' annum.

he said had been made rty V scmie
Senators in the debate of postponing

and thus continuing the debt indefinite
ly in order to perpetuate : tbe national
banking system, he spoke of the incur
bus of tbe bank power, which having
been created in a moment of folly was
now making its weight upon- the gov
ernment felt. He referred to tbe
exclusiveness of the system of
limiting the basis of banking to
bonds of the government, to tbe fran
chise enjoyed by the banks by reason or
their circulation being founded upon,
the credit and strength of the govern
ment and to their apparent intentions to
continue business upon irom $500,
000,000 to $1,000,000,000 of the bonds.
He then suggested as a means of avoid
ing the continuance of this system in
dependently that the government
should cease paying interest on securi
ties held by it for the redemption of
circulation and further substitutions in
their stead from time to time of the
State bonds of undoubted security as
collateral, these being taken at 60 cents
on the dollar, or at any percentage low
enough to make the security absolute
