yet, with a spirit of fairness and justice, wish to
bear from tho other side before proceeding to
denounce aa individual unheard. We are happy
to notice this spirit ot candor among some por
tion of the proas of the state. Mr. rajcetb
pnbliclr denied the charge. He tnformeoT the
father of tho girl of his anxiety for a legal inrcs
ligation, and ofierud to facilitate such investiga.
tion by all moans in his power. From the tact
that such investigation is expected to take place
and from a natural relartance to publish abroad
in the newspapers the domestic arrangements
even to refute the infamous slanders of his ene
mies Mr. Fay has thus far refrained from pub
lishing a defense, reserving; the facts in his pos
session for the trial. : He has not been afraid of
a public uprising as the Hrrald't correspondent
intimates ; for not only is it not true that the
whole community believed him guilty, but, on
the contrary, that belief is confined to a few of
bis political and personal enemies ; and the cir
cuuij.anc s c isuci'lisj Mr. Fay wth the affair
are Si absurd ami improbable, thai tbtro are
none of them who really believe it.
The Herald' correspondent carefally conceals
tho fact that it su Sir. Fay who sent the messen
ger to the house of thi girl's father ; that it was
be who organized the search ; that it was he who
sent at his own expense for her mother; - that no
member of his family, nor in the community,
suspected her condition, aud that she disappeared
without the knowledge uf any person ilv .Mr. Fay's
house ; that it wu he whu sent lor medical at
tendance, and that it was to his own house he
brongbt her when fonnd ;' that his family and
biuiself, as well as the couiniuuity, were ignorant
ot her condition. He al J conceals the fai-t that
while ftill upon the hill, where Fay and every
other man present cheerfully fc k off their coats
and covered the fcirl to make her as co'iifortable
aa possible, whilo waiting for the carriage, the
Htrald'a sympathetic correspondent was the only
man who refused to lend his coat. He insinuates
that Fay stood in danger of a mob ; bnt he does
not add that when his letter apeared bere so
great was his terror of persona violence that be
would shirk out of town every morning early and
remain all day, slinking back when darkness
covered bis advent, and kept this np four days,
and even at this writing does not dure show bis
cowardly face upon the streets except at rare
intervals when the coast is tear.
In conclusion, we beg to assure Mr. Fay's
many friends throughout the State that be is
ready anil anxious fur the fullest and freest
judicial investigation of this nnfortuuate affair.
An infamous attempt has been made to blacken
his good name by the slanders of cowardly scrib
blers, and the comspiracy of others to black
mail him. His life has been attempted in a
most cowardly manner, and his political and
personal enemies are enjoying a devilish carnival
over what they fondly hope is tho ruin of his
rupntation ; but he is confident, and so are his
friends, that an investigation will not onlv devel
op his innocence, but the most damnable black
mail conspiracy ever batched in the btate.
To the above we append the following, which
explains itself :
I'onruASB, March 9. ToJjeX. Fa : We

A Startling Proposition. Under
this heading, the S. F. Chronicle of the
7th announces that the Supreme Court
of California, at that writing, had under
advisement the most startling proposition
ever submitted for judicial decision in
that State. The point involved in the
proposition is briefly thus: The grand
jury indicted a party for murder; he was
tried in the District Court, and after the
jury had been out for a long time,
their Tepresentation that it would be
possible for them to agree, the Judge
the Court discharged thorn from
fuither consideration of the case
which the defendant objected. A pctU
tion is filed stating these facts, and the
prisoner's counsel demands the uncondi
tional discharge of his client, on the
ground that if subjected to another trial
he will tictce be put id jeopardy for his
life, which is unconstitutional. ; As he
is indicted for murder he can be tried for
no other offense, and his discbarge must
follow ii' the position assumed: by his
counsel be correct. Practically the poiot
is this : If any one who commits the
crime of murder can secure a :' disagree
ment of the first jury called to try the
insue, his discharge follows, because his
life cannot again be put in jeopardy. It
will be seen that one obstinate man in a
iurv of twelve men can procure a disa
greement, and a jury must be discharged
after having a case under advisement a
reasonable length of time. Here is a
nice point offered for solution by the
Supreme Court, and its judgment in the
matter is awaited with lively interest. A
decision in the affirmative would practi
cally put an end to all such thing as
justice in the courts. ;
' The Mews from Paris.
The riotous demonstrations in ; Paris
suggest again the bloody courses of the
great revolution, when tho reign of terror
prevailed and the guillotine was governor
of France. It has long been apparent
that there would be great danger ot in
ternal dissensions and bloody commotions
as soon as the pressure of the German
armies should be . withdrawn and the
French left to themselves. Government
in France is in a chaotic condition : - the
old system has been completely swept
away aud the new one has not been se-
curely established. Affairs again,' as in
1793, are in transition. And ruch out
breaks as arc recorded in the dispatches
of to day will make the transition, to a
despotism inevitable. Every vestige of
republicanism will be lost in this mad
vortex of passion, crime and blood, and
the restoration to order will ' be accom
plished by the strong hand of the mili
tary , power. Thus the falsely, called
Republicanism of France always defeats
its own professed objects. Its advocates
never Ieartf anything by experience, and
by their excesses defeat every attempt to
establish a steady republican government
and thereby make the triumph of mon
archy, with despotic authority, unavoida
ble. , The nation takes refuge in it from
the mad violence of bloody anarchists
who profess the name of republicans.
The scenes of blood like those of the
great revolution have again commenced.
Already in Paris the insurgeuts appear
to have obtained the ascendency and to
have everything their own way. They
proceed at ence, and as by iustinct, to
the work of assassination ; they have
their committee of direction, their tribu
nal of condemnation, their instruments
ot execution ; they occupy the spot on
which the siitiuLrs of the old revolution
ary tribunal was held, and take up the
trade of murder as naturally as if they
were the lineal successors of the bloody
triumvirate, and had been wrongfully
kept out ot their rights and the exercise
of their legitimate functions from the
days of the reign of terror till now.
How is this to end? The German?
unless they are called upon, will not be
likely to interfere, unless, indeed, they
and it necessarj' to do so in order to en
force compliance with the terms of the
treaty just made. It may be that the
Government of the National Assembly,
represented by Thiers and his associates,
will be compelled to ask the Emperor of
Germany to send forces back to subdue
the insurgents and restore order, so that
they may be enabled to fulfill the condi-.
tions of the treaty of peace. Certainly
the best way to scatter and extinguish
the inflammable materials which arc so
rapidly kindliug into sedition, is to call
in the German troops to do it. That
method would be short and effective.

A Great Canal Scheme. It has
been understood fcr some time that a
novel plan was proposed in the Mississippi
valley for a more speedy and economical
connection by water with the Atlantic
cities and Europe. As we have ysonie
intimation by telegraph, it is no b?ss than
to cut a ship canal from the Mississippi
river below .New Orleans across the coun
try to Mobile bay, then following the
parallel of the gulf shore to the bay of
S. Marks, crossing the peninsula of Flor
ida to the St. John's river, and then
again following the coast northward to
Charleston, South Carolina. According
to the New York Evening Post, the plan
is said to have originated with Col. P. II.
llaifbrd, ot Texas, but little attention
paid to it until ho visited some of the
northern Mississippi cities to explain the
details and give his estimates of the cost
of the proposed work. 'The subject was
laid before the St. .Louis Board ot trade
lately, and after a careful examination
that body has recommended the scheme
and signed a report, which . makes what
the Pott terms admirable promises. That
paper adds :
The length of the canal will be about
800 miles. The larger part of the route
is already supplied with natural chanrel,
according to the accounts of the friends
of this scheme, in the land locked lakes
and bays that abound on the gulf coast.
A canal is already cut from the Missis
sippi river at a poiot six miles below New
Orleans to Lake Borgoe, making the pro
posed water paths already completed to
Bon Secour bay, the eastern branch of
Mobile bay, a distance of 168 miles.
From there to tho bay of St. Marks is a
little over 200 miles. Of this distance it
is said only 60 miles will need canalling,
the remainder of the distance being trav
ersed by navigable rivers or covered by
arms of the Gulf. From St. Mark's bay
to the confluence of the Suwanee and
Santa Fe rivers, 80 miles would have to
be canalled ; but tho ground is low and
the expense would be comparatively light.
To the east of the last named point the
route would follow a deep tributary of the
St. John's river nearly the whole 60 miles
to that river. The remainder of the route
to Charleston would necessarily bo more
expensive. But it is asserted that only
120 miles of ' the' ' whole route ' require
drcdging8,-and that the whole expense
of the canal wonld not exceed $12,000,
000. The plan appears plausible. No
doubt it would benefit the St. Louis and
the Mississippi valley in general. New
Orleans, however, can scarcely bo ' ex
pected to be enthusiastic over a scheme
that necessitates transferring a good deal
of its export business to an Atlantio port.
lhe worst feature of the scheme is tbat,
before it is fairly in favor with the parts
of the country most interested, its advo
cates talk of placing their dependence
upon Government sid and support through
the mach abused system of subsidies and

Washington, March 20. During the
sessions ot tne 11 isrii commission, tne
past week, the iclations of the two coun
tries to each other have been considered
in ft general way, with a view: to' seeing
what concessions might be made by either
side before anv particular dispute shall
be taken up for fcttlement. lhe impres
sion which prevailed at first was that
Jbmgland was preparea to oner tne olive
branch, and that mere quibbles would be
discarded, for a candid and frank avowal
of outrages committed and damages to be
adjusted ; but this has given place to a
fear that England is not disposed to make
any magnauimoua concessions, and that
if any arrangments is entered into for the
settlement of the pending question, it
would be on the basis of equivalent. The
Commissioners seem to incline rather to
the plan for purchasing the right to our
fisheries, to fish freely in Canadian waters
without restrictions, which is looked upon
as an easy mode of settlement. On the
other hand, it is certain that popular sen
timent would coudemn the adjustment of
our differences with England by our
agreeing to pay England money. It is
said that neither a revival of the Recipro
city Treaty, nor payment of a considerable
sum for the tight of fishiug in Canadian
waters, would be popular with our
S. S. CoscebtTiichsdat Evening. The Con
cert gircn by the members of the Methodist Sab
bath School, in the M. E. Church, on Thursday

A New Gas Lamp. We have been experiment
ing with a new gas lamp, now being introduced
iu this market by R. C. Hill & Son, nt their drug
establishment on First street. The new lamp
requires no chimney or wiek ; each lamp has a
patent burner, which generates the gas it con
sumes ; it gives a clear, white aud brilliant light,
and, so far as our experience goe.-, it is eqnal to
the best coal gas burners; and as each lamp is a
perfect gas factory in itself, it is much cheaper.
Tho lamps arc made of metal, therefor are in no
danger of being broken by carelessness, but will
lust a life-time. So far, we like tbcm better than
any lamp we bare u;ed. Go and examine for
yourselves ; Fred. Hill will take pleasure in ex
hibiting them to all who may desire to invest.
