tion was the sudden abandonment of
the case by the-Federal" Government,
in view of the insurmountoble difficult
)ics in the way of getting a J final con
viction which were revealed by their
patient study of the law bearing upon

this conference, he paid him (Sir. Hoad
solving, and it, was agreed between
them tliat unless it were clear, that the
conviction of Mr. Davis would follow!
his trial, and that the law and the facts
on the side of the prosecution would
be irresistible in the Supreme Court as
.well a.MQ whatever court o'fj priginal
jurisdictionj the case might be initiated,
it would be the part of wisdom and
true statesmanship as well ; as policy
not to begin the prosecution.

trials in tlie liisfory' of the" civilized
world, were studied, weighed, analyzed
and dissected, The council was 'divi

will be remembered, suddenly aban-

news to aiany of our readers to learn
that this sudden change of policy was
the direct result 01 this solemn con

to his home, Mr. Hoadley inquired the
result of their deliberations, and J udge
Clifford made a htriking- and character
istic reply in something like the follow

Remarkable as the fact may ap

' Save in the " case of the very young,
however, the schools, have made, but
Tittle impression, upon, the ignorance in
which the colored "race have been r eat -ed.1
. Their worship in their churches
give evidence of this. A lady, the
other clay, gave me an account of a
sermon which she heard not long since
in St. Augustine.; as an examp'e of
their mode of embtlishing Scripture
history. The preacher had dwelt
awhile on the tail ot man and the act
of"dUobcaience by which' sin came. ii
to the world, and had got as far as the
time of Noah. lie then said:
' De word got to be berry wuked,
de people all badand de Lord make
np His mind to drown dem. But Noah
was a good mant who read his Bible
and did just as de Lord tole hims,
And de Lord tole Noah to build a big
ark, big enough to hole part ebery ting
aliye on de earth ; and Noah built it.
And de Lord call upon tbry libing
ting to come into de ark and be saved. J
And de birds come flyiu to de ark, and
de big IJpn, andde cow, ami de'potsom
come in, and de ark, and de lettle.
