nvdnted something which would revo
lutionize the world, or that he was the
President of the United bcaces, or
Christ, or God, or that he was inspired
bv God to do a certain act, or mat ne
had a glass limb and those were cases
of insane delusions. Generally the de
lusion centered around the patient nim-
self, his rights or his wrongs, it came
and went, independently oi tne exeruioe
of will and reason, like a phantasm of
a dream. It was, in tact, ime waKing
dream of the insane, in wnicn weas
presented themselves to me mma as
real facts. The most certain thing was
that an insane delusion was never the
result of reasoning and reflections was
not generated by the mind, and could
nnt-hA disnelled bv them. A man
might reason himself or be reasoned by
nthAra into absurd opinions and be per
suaded into impracticable schemes, but
h m-mld not be reasoned or persuaded
into inaanitv or insane delusions. The
question for the jury to determine was
what, was the condition of the prison
er's mind at the time when this project
was executed. If tin was sumcienuy
sane then to be responsible, it matter
ed nnt what miffht have been his con

hft was so at the time. But still all the

renomination in lS84.Inthe President's

dress to the American people which
was written and given to Mr. Reynolds :
"I now wish to state distinctively why
I attempted to remove the President. 1
had read the papers for and against the
administration very carefully for two
months before I conceived the idea of
removing him. Gradually, as there-
suit of reading the newspapers, the idea
settled on me that if the President were
removed it would unite the two fac
tions of the republican party and there
by save the government from going in
to the hands of the ex-rebels and their
Northern allies. It was my own con
ception, and whether right or wrong I
take the entire responsibility." A sec
ond paper, dated July 19, addressed to
the public, reiterated these statements,
and added, MI have got the inspiration
worked out of me."
The iurv would consider whether
these declaration were evidence of in
stanity, or whether, on the contrary,
thev showed an ample power of reason
ing and reflection, resulting in the opin
ion that the President nad Detrayed nis
party, and that if he were out of the
wav it would be a benefit to his party
and would save the country from the
predominance of their political oppo
nents. So far there was nothing insane
in the conclusion. It had doubtless
been shared by a good many heated
partisans who were sane peeple, but the
difference was that the prisonr reached
the conclusion that to put the Presi
dent out of the way by assassination
was a political necessity. When men
reasoned the law required them to rea
son correctly, so far as their practical
duties were concerned, w hen they nad
the capacity to distinguish between
right and wrong they were bound to do
There was. undoubtedly, a form of
insane delusion consisting of a belief by
a person that he is inspired by the AI-
miehty to do something to kill anotb
er, for example and this delusion
might besostrong as to impel him to
the commist ion of crime. The def en
dant in this case claims that he labored
under such a delusion at the time of the
assassination.His unsworn declarations
in his own favor were not, of course,
evidence, and were not to be considered
by the jury. The law allowed a prison
er to testify in his own behalf, and
therefore made his sworn testimony on
the witness-stand legal evidence, to be
received and considered and given such
weight to as it deserved. No verdict,
however, could be safely rendered on
the sole evidence of an accused party
under such circumstances. Otherwise,
a man on trial for his life could secure
his acquittal by simply .testifiying that
he had committed the crime under a
delusion of inspiration or irresistible
impulse. That would be to proclaim a
universal amnesty to criminals in the
past and unbounded license in the fu
turerand courts of justice might as
well be closed.
After fairly and fully stating the the
ory or the prosecution and or the de
fense, Judge Cox said, in conclusion
"And now, gentlemen, to sum up all I
have said to you, if you find from the
whole evidence that at the time of the
commission of the homicide the prison
er was laboring under such a defect of
his reason that he was incapable of un
derstanding what he was doing or of
seeine that it was a wronsr thine to do
as for example, if he were under the
insane delusion that the Almighty had
commanded him to do the act then he
was not in a responsible condition of
mind, but was an object of compassion
and snouid De now acquitted.
If, on the other hand, you find that he
was under no insane delusion, but had
the possession of his faculties, and pow
er to know that his act was wrong, and
if, of bis own free will, he deliberately
conceived the idea and executed the
homicide, then, whether his motive
were personal vindictiveness, political
animosity, a desire to avenge supposed
political wrongs, or a morbid desire for
notoriety, or if you are unable to dis
cover any; motive at all, the" act is sim
ply murder, and it is your duty to find
a verdict of guilty as indicted: or (after
a suggestion from Mr. Scoville to that
effect,) if you find that the prisoner is
not guilty by reason of insanity, it is
your duty to say so. You will now re
tire to your room and consider your
During the delivery of the judge's
charge, which was completed at 4 40 p.
m there was perfect stillness in me
crowded court-room, and even the
prisoner kept absolutely quiet, with the
exception of one or two simple inter
ruptions. The jury immediately reur:

Before leaving the court-room, when
the recess was announced, luiteau
evinced considerable nervousness, but

some apples, with which he treated his
attendants, meanwhile chatting iamni-

and replied."! think they will acquit
me or disagree, don't you?" Within
ten minutes after the recess had been
taken the iurv called to the bailiff in
waiting that they were ready wir-n tneir
verdict. They were informed that a
recess had been taken, and that Judge
Oox had left the court-room, sotney re
mained in their room until the court
reassembled. The rumor that the jury
had acrreed was auicklv snread trom
one to another, and the excitea crowa
swayed back into the court-room, 8nd

Not a tremor of the limbs or a move
ment of the muscles of the face was
observable as he threw back his head
and fixed his gaze upon the door through
which the jury were to enter.
"GUILTY AS INDICTED."
Judee Cox soon afterwards took his
seat, the crier called "Order," and the
jury at 5:35 filed slowly into their seats.
Every sound was hushed save the voice
of the clerk as he propounded to the
foreman the usual inquiry. (Jlear and
distinct came the reply "We have."
What is your verdict, guilty or not
guilty ?" With equal distinctness came
the reply, "Guilty, as indicted.
Then the pent-up leenngs or the
crowd found expression in uproarious
demonstrations of applause and appro
val. "Order!" "Order I" shouted the
Mr. Scoville and counsel for the pros
ecution were simultaneously upon their
feet. Mr. Scoville attempted to address
the court, but the district attorney
shouted, "Wait till we have the verdict
complete and in due form of law. Or
der was at length restored and the
clerk, again addressing the jury, said
Your foreman says 'Guilty, as Indict
ed.' So say we all of us V"
"We do, they all responded.
Another demonstration of approval
followed this announcement, but not
so prolonged as tbe first.
Mr. Scoville, still upon his leet, de-
manded a poll of the jury, which was
granted, and each juror was called by
name, and each, in a hrm voice respon

law and practice in this District. If
there is anything that I ought to do now

ted to your honor to indicate it to
Judge Cox assured him that he
should have every opportunity; that
the charge would be furnished to him
in print to-morrow, and he would be
accorded all the time allowed by law
within which to file his exceptions, and
that he would also be entitled to four
days within which to move in arrest

Judge Cox began the delivery of his
charge to tne jury nad dropped com
pletely his air of fltppaut arrogance and
sat with rigid features and compressed
lips) called out in tones of desperation :
"God will avenge this outrage. '
THANKS TO THE JURY.
Judge Cox then turned to the jury
and said: "Gentlemen of the jury, I
cannot express too many thanks for the
manner m which you have discharged
your duty. You have richly merited
the thanks of your countrymen, and I
feel assured you will take with you to
your homes the approval of your con
sciences. With thanks, gentlemen of
the jury, I dismiss you.
With this announcement the court
was declared adjourned, and the now
famous trial, which has absorbed the
public interest and attention for more
than ten weeks, ended. The crowd
quickly left the court room, and the
prisoner, gesticulating with his mana
cled hands, was led out As he passed
the reporters' tables he leaned over and
called out to an acquaintance, "The
court in banc will reverse thisbusi
ness. ms appearance was that or. a
man deeply moved with indignation at
some outrage or indigmtv which had
been put upon him. As he was being
put in the van the crowd of men and
boys upon the pavement veiled and
shouted themselvas hoarse in mockery
of the prisoner's constant boast, "The
American press and people are all with
me" The van was auicklv driven
away, followed till out of sight by the
jeers and yells of the crowd.
Mr. Scoville will probably file a mo
tion in arrest of judgment, and for a
new trial on exceptions. The law gives
the defendant four davs to file the mo
tion and reasons for a new trial, and it
is customary for the court to sit some
day to hear the argument thereon.
Should this motion be overruled the
defendant will appeal to the General
Term, and under the law the defendant
is entitled to a suspension of the sen
tence till after the next General Term,
not exceeding thirty days. The Janu
ary General Term is now in session,
and the case cannot go there, but will
be appealable to the April term.
It is the custom of the April term to
run until September, taking a recess
over Julv and AnmiRt hnt should it be
closed by the latter part of May, then,
if the judgment is affirmed, the execu
tion might take place in July.
