Judge Advocate General Swain has
rendered an opinion that the proceed
ings in the court martial which tried
Mason for shooting at Guiteau are in
valid on account of certain irregulari
ties. This means a new trial for the
Sereeant, before a civil court, ana an
acauittal. or a trial on a smaller charge
than an attempt to kill, with a mere
nominal punishment if convicted. Wd
think the Judge Advocate General was
right when he rendered the opinion he
did, for Mason should not have been
tried by court martial at all. His
offense was an offense against the civil
law, and he should have been tried by
a civil court. Had he killed Guiteau
his case would not certainly have been
tried by court martial, and there is no
more reason why an attempt to kill
should have been. Gen. Hancock had
doubts about the power to try by court
martial when he tendered the prisoner
to the civil authorities, and his only ex
cuse for ordering his trial is that the
civil authorities refused to do it This
relieves Gen. Hancock from responsi
bility in the premises.
There is but little doubt, however,
that the Judge Advocate General was
influenced in his decision by the mon
ster petitions that have been- gotten up
throughout the North for Mason's par
don, and the general feeling of interest
that has been manifested in his case
since his conviction, which feeling of
sympathy was increased by the severity
of the punishment and by the cruel
treatment of the man before trial That
he should have been incarcerated in a
loathsome dungeon and treated as the
basest of malefactors, while the assassin
at whom he sent his aimless bullet oc
cupied comfortable apartments as a
pampered prisoner of State shocked the
common sense of justice and made the
obscure sergeant hosts of friends. The
result has been, petitions by the people,
by societies and resolutions by State
Legislatures praying for pardon and
protesting against the severe and un
just sentence, which have resulted in
an opinion adverse to the findings of
the court and will result in Mason's re
lease after brief confinement While
this is going on sympathizers of a sub
stantial kind are getting up subscrip
tions for the benefit of "Bettie and her
child," who will have enough in a little
while, from the way thejf ractional cur
rency is rolling in now, to start a little
national bank, so that shooting at Gui
teau won't be such a bad business for
Mason after all.
There is a feature, however, in all
these proceedings, which cannot fail to
attractiattention, and it is that under
certain circumstances the great mass
of people and legislative bodies have
but little regard for law when the exe
cution of that law takes a direction in
opposition to their sympathies. The
popular voice demanded the conviction
of Guiteau and though there were and
are many who believed and still believe
him insane he was convicted, while
Mason, charged with an attempt at the
same crime, murder, the popular voice
demands that he be released. It is true,
it was only an attempt to kill, but if he
had been successful it would have been
the same thing, and perhaps he would
have found even more devoted friends
It all shows how the masses view the
enforcement of the laws when feeling
or passion stanas in tne way.

Richmond, March 27. A destructive
conflagration broke out in this citv Yes
terday, which for a time threatened to
spread into a general conflagration.
About nait-past 12 a Diaze was seen
issuing from the southern end of tne
long bridge of the Petersburg railroad,
and before tne engines could arrive tne
strong gale of wind blowing had swept
tne names over tne bridge, completely
destroying it In less than an hour it
fell a ruin into the river, leaVing noth
ing standing but the stone piers. The
flames swept oyer seizing the large to
bacco factory 01 S. W. liutnerrord &
Co., spreading to the factories of It. A,
Patterson & Co. and T. C. Williams &
Co., which were burned, with a half
dozen stemmeries, the Vulcan Iron
Works and about twenty tenement
houses. About 300 feet of the bridge
connecting the Tredegar Works with
the Rich. & P. road, were, burned, and
for a time threatened the works, which
were saved, however, by the efforts of
the Tredigar hre brigade. The com
pany lost ten new freight cars. T. P.
Smith's grist mill, a number of small
buiidings and the Kasiin Works of the
Virginia Mining and Manufacturing
company, were also destroyed. The
Richmond and Danville bridge caught
nre out was savea.
When the sweep of the flames led to
the belief that a general conflagration
would be the result-Mayor Carnneton
telegraphed to the fire department at
Wadmngton tor engines wnicn were

that the flames could be subdued,
