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. A Texas woman wants a railroad to pay her $200,000 for killing her hus band. Judge St. Julien Cox, of Minnesota, took his tod to such an extent that they found it necessary to impeach him. Gen. Skoboleff, whose fiery chat has raised such a rumpus in Germany, is only thirty-nine years old, and looks ten years younger. It took forty thousand dollars to find out who nipped Whittaker's ears, and now he has been turned loose and we don't know who nipped his ears after all. The New York Democratic Advance raises the name of Tilden for President in 1884. In fact that seems to be the chief business of the Advance. Col. McClure, of the Philadelphia Times, is talked about for Congressman at large for Pennsylvania, McClure would be quite a large Congressman, not only in statue but in brain. The Washington Republican takes a rest occasionally from its task of de fending the Star Route thieves, to make a pass at Bourbonism. This is recrea tion for the Star Route organ. Statisticians estimate that the popu lation of this country has increased over 1,000,000 since the taking of the census in 1880, making our population upward of 52,000,000. It is believed that in 1800 it will approximate 60,000,- uw, v m it Tne Democrats seem to have been gaining in the town elections in New Hampshire. These spring gains are a good deal like the spring thaws. We never hear of them in the fall, when the heavy solid voting is done. W. L. O'B. Robinson has been nomi nated as U. S.

Dakota wants to come in as a State, but some of her creditors object until she pays some money she owes them. They are petitioning Congress to this effect. The Republican majority in Congress don't oare a continental whether Dakota pays her debts or not as long as there is a reasonable proba bility of Dakota voting, the Republican ticket. Colonel William Tappan Thompson, editor of the Savannah News, and one of the best known writers in the South, died at his home in Savannah last Fri day evening. He was born in Ohio in 1812, but when quite young came South, first locating in Florida, but afterwards moved into Georgia, and identified him self with the journalism of that State. He was the author of "Major Jones's Courtship," "Major Jones's Travels," "The Chronicles of Pineville," "The Live Indian," a farce which was suc cessfully played upon the stage, and a dramatization of "The Vicar of Wake field." BIG FIRE IN RICHMOND. OVER HALF A MILLION DOLLARS . WORTH OF PROPERTY DE STROYED. The Petersburg Railroad Long: Bridge, aNumber of Factories, and Tene ment Houses Burned, one Life Losf and Several Persons Injured. 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.

The remainder of the day was de voted to legislation on local affairs in theDistrict of Columbia. Among the bills reported from the District com mittee was one incorporating the Gar field Memorial Hospital. It was ex plained that the object of the bill was to make a hospital perpetual. Some members opposed the bill, arguing that if it should pass the government would be called on to erect the building and maintain the institution ; that such was the design of some of the incorporators named in the bill. Wilson, of West Virgini- offered an amendment providing that whenever the corporation shall apply to congress for aid any appropriation made for the purpose shall operate as a repeal of this act. Pending the action the bill and amendments were recommitted to the committee on the District of Columbia, with instructions to that committee to report an amendment to thegeneral incorporation law of the District of Co lumbia by means of which the hospital can be incorporated and be perpetual. Under the present law no association can be incorporated for a longer period tn an twenty years. Adjourned. Sir Montague Williams. Ashevtlle Citizen.
