2 other way. Tho latest intelligence hy special correspondent direct from tho stables is that the horses are on their feet and. are doing as well as could ho expected titer the excitement of the weak. The Jubilee was a little too much for them, as they never bad the honor of owning a great public man for naster before they entered the service of their present distinguished boss. THE REAPER PHASE. THESE EXCURSIONS ON FRIDAY AND SATURDAY did more to acquaint those who took partin Them'‘with the resources and manufacturing" capacities of .Chicago than the reading of a hundred newspaper articles could have done. They saw for themselves the new harbor which is to supplement the Chicago Biver, and to servo as the nucleus lor a hundred millsand they also saw that other section of -which less has been said, but which is rapidly becoming of equal importance, that southwestern part of the city which is so rapidly losing its barrenness; and becoming covered with immense manufac tories, and the homes of operatives. the cheat feature hibre is, beyond all question, tho immense reaper works of G. H. McCormick & Brothers, in which the excursionists lunched, and the broad ex panses of which theypartlv wandered over. This building, with its immensity of machines, and army of men, which has grown up from the emallest of beginnings, twenty-seven years ago, Is but a type of tho progress of the great 'West. The increasing demands of the farmers, needing more machines for their crops, have forced the works to enlarge again and again, until now it la thought that they axe large enough to meet as heavy a demand as can bo mad© on them. They began by making a hundred machines a year. They now make fifteen thousand in the same time. location op the works. In order to get elbow-room and breathing space, the McCormicks decided to their ■works in that vacant portion of the city already referred to, and they purchased twenty-three acres of erotmd on the ’West Branch of tho Chicago Eiver, near the intersection of Bine Island and Western avenues. Tho fonner al reav is, the latter will in the course of time be come, one of the chief business streets of Chi cago. This locality is accessible by lake and canal, having a dock front of over 1,300 feet, and it is also the centre of the great network of rail roads that converge at Chicago. THE BUILDINGS. 0f these twenty-three acres over six are oc cupied by immense buildings which are five stories in height, lighted with gas and heated •with steam, occupying three sides of a square, each ado BGO feet long, with the engine-room end a four-story middle building between the two wings. Ground was broken for the founda tion in August, 1872, and the works are not yet entirely completed; but ten thousand of their machines for the coming harvest are well- for ward toward completion. When the works are fully completed their capacity will be THOUSAJTD COXZtXNED MACHINES per year. The labor of this establishment is done by 800 men, together with machinery rep resenting an almost incredible amount of manu al power. Mechanics of ail kinds are employed, and the manufactory is in itself a village whore untiring industry prevails. This machinery is go numerous as to defy computation. In the important wood department there are upright, circular, cross-cnt, and band saws; Daniel’s & Woodworth’s planers; boring, morsti iag, tenoning, matching, shaping, sand-papermg and smoothing machines, which speedily reduce the rough labor into the necessary shapes. In the iron department one first sees the punch presses, where the iron is cut into lengths, cold, from the minute presses which make the mill ions of bolt-washers to the immense one that shears four-inch bars as if they were sheet-iron. THE EOUNDUY la a building 255 feet by SO, all nnder one roof. It contains two fnmacea, each capable of melt ing thirty tons of pig iron. The air blast ia fur nished the cupolas by one of Eoot’a largest-sized rotary blowers. The blacksmiths shop is 90 feet bv 100, filled with trip-hammers and bolt-forg ing machines, the latter turning out from 3,000 to 4,000 bolts a dav. The reaper finger-making is an important pit of the work done here, and requires the most rapid and skillful blacksmiths. AU the fires are supplied with air blasts from a network of underground pipes. moN finishing. It requires a thoroughly informed guide to avoid being lost in the perplexing mazes of the iron-finishing department. Here are iron lathes of aU sizes for turning and dressing, many of them of peculiar construction for spe cial work, and made hy the McCormicks them selves. There are drills, upright and horizon tal, iron planers, key seat cutters, screw cutters, and nut tappers, straightening ma chines and gear cutter. The latter is a beauti ful piece of machinery, made with mathematical occnracv, and is used in iron pattern-making for cutting ont the cogs, so that cadi tooth shall have the right shape and degree of pitch, and be ail exactly alike, and exactly spaced. EETTISQ THEM UP. After the various parte have thus been made, they pass into the hands of the mechanics, who set them up sud fit them, thence to the painters, stripers, end varnisfaerfi, and thence to the pack ing and shipping-rooms. There is' also a sickle tdiop, where the work of sickle-making is carried on in all its details. The sections are cut out from Sheffield aneet-steel; the teeth are cut by ingenious machinery; the sections are tempered, polished, and notched on the backs, thus making a perfect mower-knife, reaper-sickle, or fiax cutter, for the three are required to fit out a per sect combined machine. OUTSIDE THE BUTEJUNO Nad inside the fence is a patent dry-liooso, heat ed by steam to 22 degrees Fahrenheit; large enough to take in lumber by the car-load. Ail lumber having any sap in it ia passed through this dry-house before reaching the saws. Ad joining this kiln is the extensive lumber-yard of the concern, where pine, white ash, hickory, rock elm, maple, oak, and whitewood lumber ia stacked up to extent of several million feet. On the other side of the yard lie the coal piles and the pig-iron stacks, the whole being closely connected by a net-work of railroad tracks, which, when completed through the yards and around the buildings, will be the most perfect of its kind, embracing a track scale for weighing material, by car-load, on the track. The extensive cellar-room under the entire build ing, is used for the storage of har-iron, sheet steel, sheet zinc, copper, brass wire, and finish ed castings. In short, it is equal to any whole sale metal warehouse in the city, in extent and variety of its stock. THE ONE ENGINE which furnishes all the motive power for the im mense machinery at work, including the air blasts and water-pumping, is a 300-horse-power, low-pressure upright engine, made by the Cuya hoga Steam Furnace Company, of Cleveland, O. It Is a splendid specimen of strength and beauty. To give an idea of its great strength, its fly wheel alone weighs over sixteen tons. In the room adjoining, steam is furnished in abundance for motive power and heating purposes by five immense boilers, the workmanship of Garble Mason, of Chicago. WATEE-SUPPLY. A 4-inch city main on tho ono side connects the engine and boilers with tho lake supply of water, while a supply of water from the river is drawn through a 12-inch underground pipe a distance of 500 feet. Tho water-supply is thus ample, and by means of a steam pump can be instantly thrown into all parts of the building, and over the roof. By this arrangement, and the means of turning on lire steam into tho re motest room in the building, as well as interior division and fire-walls and iron doors, it la ex pected the premises are tolerably safe against another conflagration. D? CONCLUSION. • These "wore a few of the striking features whicb were noticed by the excursionists as they passed through these magnificent buildings, but it would have taken a much longer examination I ban they could hare given to derive a perfect acquaintance with the work which the building up of such a business required- That could be better appreciated by examining the office with its vault piled up with ledgers and day-books dating back for twenty-five years, and all the correspondence of a quarter of a century, both letters received and copies of letters written, which form a complete history of the rise and progress of the . McCormick Bcaper- It la unnecessary to dilate upon the surprise of ihe excursionists at what they saw there and elsewhere. They have expressed their own sen timents too fully to make it necessary to add anything to them- ■ THE HYDE PARK PHASE. ■ GimonE AND HTS BA>T? gave an out-door concert in tho aristocratic sub urb of Hyde Park yesterday afternoon. The entertainment was entirely due to the enterprise end liberality of a few private individuals, and, being free, was largely attended and hugely en joyed. There must have been'SOO persons pres ent, the majority of whom were ladies. Several prominent men, such as Senator Logan, Aid. Bowen, the Hon. N. E. Judd, and Mr. J, Irving Pearce, could be seen among the spectators. Tho musicians sat in tho shady grove at the rear of the Hyde Park House, and played seven or eight pieces. The selections were principally from well-known and popular, operas like ‘•Faust"and “Martha,” and were performed in. a,pleasing manner. 1 Bond applause vm ns ' caidonally elicited, especially whenever Arbupklo ’played a few bars oh'his cornet unsupported by ' the rest of ;th©!bancC, In ;tho potpourri .of airs from 44 Martba,” Uajfls.yod* tbo Last Bos©\of Summer'*!,with •- good taste, varid, in a medley of national airs, “lankee Doodle,” with variations. The latter woo loudly encored, and had to bo repeated. Daring the intermission the members ~of the band •were entertained at lunch in the hotel. It is unneces sary to criticise any part of tho concert, as it jsnia anJmproinptu affair, gotten up for -the-on tertainment of those -who wo.o unable to attend, the Jubilee. It was brought to a dose shortly after 6 o’clock, and in'a few minutes Hyde Park had lost several hundred of a temporary popula tion. - •• • • i THE BENEFIT PHASE.- " ■ " ‘ THE jubilee closed* with a complimentary benefit to Hr- Gilmore last evening at the depot, which was very hand somely attended, about 4,000 people being pres ent, and as this number could easily find seats, there was' less discomfort than at. any' of. the previous concerts, and the concert was really the most enjoyable of the series for this as well as for many other reasons. The programme was made up of selections from tho other throe, em bracing the Kaiser, Jubcl, and llobespierre over tures, which brought out the Austrian, French, and English national airs, and the potpourri on themes from “Martha,” which got an encore. Mr. Arbuckle also played a solo, which was en cored, in reply to-which ho gavo Levy’s familiar polka in superb style. The chorus sang the “ Hallelujah,” Owen’s“Ave Maria ” with Mrs. McGuire in tho solo, the Anvil Chorus, and other numbers. Both tho orchestra and chorus were materially reduced, the former numbering about CO pieces and the latter about 4.OCT singers, but tho general effect of both was finer than on the previous concerts. Tho audi ence was a very enthusiastic one, and remained to the dose, the Jubilee breathing its . hist about half-past 10, leaving several lemonade and peanut dealers with unsold stocks on hand. The great depot will henceforth bo devoted to a different stylo of music. Mr. Gilmore goes hence to Milwaukee for a concert, and will then go back to Boston, not over-pleased with the re sults of the Jubilee, for which he claims that he is in no wise responsible. ' WHAT THEY SAY. FBOar THE NEW YORK WORLD. The present gathering was brought about in a manner which was nothing if not Chicagolsh- The first intimation that such a thing waa medi tated was made to the public on the 15th of May, and the Jubilee was fixed for the 5tU and Cth of June. Following bo closely on the splendid Thomas Festival at Cincinnati, it seemed as if Chicago, in obedience to the impulse of compe tition which stirred np the three great Western cities to such sublime and ridiculous manifesta tions of rivalry, intended to “ see ” Porkopolis and u raise her one ” with a genuine festival which should do for music—pure and artistic music—in the Northwest what the Cin cinnati Festival has undoubtedly done for music more to the south of us. Any anticipations of this nature were rapidly Mid ruthlessly defeated by the announce ment that Gilmore was to conduct. the proceed ings and that the programme was to be modeled after that of the Boston Juhileo. The real fact is that the new railroad station of the Chicago, Bock Island & Pacific and Lake Shore & Michigan Southern Railroads waa about to be opened; also, the Grand Pacific Hotel just fac ing it, a mammoth caravanserai coating some $2,500,000, in which the same railroads are heav ily interested. To give this hotel a big send off was the real object of the Jubilee. In con sidering it, therefore, the reader will not insti tute any invidious comparisons between it and the Cincinnati gathering. What Chicago aimed to got up was what would crowd all the hotels, fill all the trains, jam the theatres, and empty the. shelves of the retail stores. In this the Jubilee has been a success. The musical char acter of the Jubilee can hardly be expected to stand criticism. The programme was not* pub lished until the Ist of June, and the first re hearsal took place on the 2d, being attended only by some 700 of the chorus, with none.of the orchestra, the accompaniments being supplied by two pianos and an organ. The only soloist was Mr. Arbuckle, who performed two solos on the comet. Two more of the twenty-one num bers were sheer padding, being selections from opera performed by Gilmore’s band. All the other pieces chosen were of the family style. tk Old Hundred,” the overtures to u William Tell." “ Der Freischntz,” and “ Tannhaueer,” the Anvil and Hallelujah choruses, of course, the “ Farewell to the Forest,” and 44 America ” and the 4 * Star Spangled Banner.” In brief,. it waa pretty much such a programme as would be gotten np in the parlor of .a village residence where there were three musical daugh ters who were courted every Saturday night by three musical swains who belonged to the Til lage choir, only that there were just one hun dred times as many singers, 'with a heavier ac companiment than a piano or melodeoa and a violin. This not because there is a lock of mu sical talent in Chicago, for the Oratorio Society and the German Harmonic societies contain many fine singers, and among the professional musicians there are many artiats t if there are more quacks. Given plenty of time and Theo dore Thomas, and Chicago could have rivaled Cincinnati. But time was pressing, the railroad depot would soon be needed for use and the railroad hotel for summer business, so the word was passed, in Chicago parlance, to “ hoop ’em up a jubilee ” for week after , next, and it was done. FROM THE CINCINNATI GAZETTE. Chicago, June G.—The jubilee closed to-night with s grand ball in the Merchants’ Exchange. The music of to-day was infinitely worse than that of yesterday; in fact, it was utter folly to attempt to carry out tlje programme at all. It was the children’s day, and young Chicago as serted himself by whistling, running, yelling, and bombarding with paper balls every promi nent head to be seen in the audience. It was . a mob. The noiso of the rain on the roof that caused. Thomas to delay his programme was a faint whisper compared to the tumult in which to-day’s programme was rendered. Under the circumstances, it would ho folly to speak of tho character of the. music. The patient teachers of tho public schools would have been justified in refusing to have their pupils sing at all in such disorder. The Jubilee . would do discredit to Chicago if it were in any fair sense a public affair. As it is, it illustrates the questionable shrewdness of its managers, who number not more than half a dozen. But it will doubtless move Chicago to an effort to re trieve the character those few men have caused her to lose.. “CONE OVER." An Episcopal Minister of Baltimore Pronounces for me Romish Faith, Special Dispatch to The Chicago Tribune, Wassikoton,' June 7. —In the Baltimore American this morning are the particulars of an event which is just now the subject of much comment in that city. Tho Bar. E. Southgate, a young clergyman of the Episcopal Church, who came to Baltimore a few weeks since, from the diocese of New York, to assist the Rec tor of St, Luke’s Church, Franklin Square, has sud denly abandoned his position as a minister of the Episcopal Church -and entered a theological seminary of the Boman Catholic Church. It appears that tho Bev. Mr. Southgate, who was only a deacon, has be come a candidate for priestly orders, and that tho day for his ordination would have' been Trinity Sunday, to-morrow, but some days ago the Hoc lor of St. Luke’s notified the Bishop of the Diocese that he hod serious objections to the ordination of Mr. South gate, in which tho Bishop coincided, and it was there fore determined that the young Deacon would not bo ordained. The yonng man was then advised to return, to his father, the Bight Bev. Horatio Southgate, who resides in New York, but instead of doing so, he seems to have gone immediately to St, Mary’s Seminary, a Roman Catholic institution ia Baltimore, where he was at last accounts. Court Troubles In Arkansas* Little Bock, June 7. —On Wednesday last, the Circuit Court of Jefferson County, Judge Morse, pre siding, met the Hon. V. M. McGebee, who had been commissioned try the Governor as ProsecaUng- Attomey. The old Prosecuting-Attorney, S, Sing, had refused to surrender the office, and the Court recognized him while remarking that JlcGehee could institute suit to obtain the office if he decired so to do. McQehoe had some indictments and other papers belonging to his office in his possession, Tho Court directed the' attorneys of the Court to return all papers in their possession to the Clerk by tho next morning. Tho next morning the new District Attorney, McOehec, among others, ached permission of the Court to retain possession of the indictments in his possession- for a short time longer, in order that ho might ex&miao them ana the State be protected. Whereupon the Court fined McGchee SSO, and ordered him confined in jail tea days, and MeGeheo is now in jail. This matter create considerable excitement here. It la stated the Governor will take decided etc pa to see that his authori ty la respected, and McGehee released.

' .New Tons, June 7.—London newspapers contain the speech of Thiers delivered in the National Assem bly in (ho course of tbo debate which preceded the change of Administration in Franco. Ho said, toward the closo of. his address, that what the country wanted was not a party government, hut one which was inflexible .in the presence of disorder, and. when the struggle was endod, shows itself calm, impartial and conciliatory. If we (his ■ Administration) had been a party government, the public peace could not long have remained undisturbed. Party government would be disastrous for the country. Our policy had a double task to fulfill: to make peace and release the territory. That peace made with the victor which preserved the eastern frontier, Belfort, waa but a nominal peace. The substantial peace is the liberation of the terri tory. We have paid i,000,000,000, and astonished • Europe by our efforts, and the payment of the last milliard will be commenced within a week, ; To the charge that hie Government had no alliance,' Thiers replied: “In the present condition of the world, after the Insensate policy which has broken up the Euro pean balance of power, there are no longer any allies for any one. Alliances consist In the oeteem which each inspires, and France has re sumed the position which is her due by her vitality, by her steady and consistent course. We are restoring our military forces without concealment, because we do not wish that France should sink from her prop er rank. The best alliance constats 'in the esteem which we inspire in Europe. That which divides the Chamber is the question of a republic or monarchy; but the friends of the latter speak of themselves as conservatives, and do so be cause they know there is but ono throne, which will not suffice for three aspirants, n MEXICO.

The following is the decision of the Attorney-General in relation to the Modoc captive**: Department op Justice, Washington, D, C.,1 June 7, 1873. / To the President Sm: I have the honor to acknowledge the receipt from you of several papers relative to the Modoc In diana now in custody of the United States Army, with a request for my opinion as to the authority to try certain of the prisoners by military tribuna'. Tho main facts out of which the question arises are these: In 1664 the United States made a treaty with these Indians, by the terms of which they were to go and remain upon a reservation in the State of Oregon. Date bwt fail, the Indians being uway from their reser vation, a military detachment was sent to procure their return. Finding them unwilling to go peacefully, tho officer Indicated his determination to use compulsion, in consequence of which a conflict ensued between the United States troops and the Indians. Soon after sev eral peaceful citizens and their families in the vicinity wore murdered by the Indians of this band. They then entrenched themselves in the lava-beda In tho neighborhood. Fighting ensued, and one or more severe battles took place, in which persona on both sides were wounded and killed, sod the United States troops repulsed. Pending hostilities, negotiations were opened for peace, and on tho 15th of April last Gen. Canby, the Rev. Mr. Thomas, and Mr. Meacham, at a point between the opposing forces, and ha pursuance of mutual agreement to that end, met Capt. Jack, the leader of the -Indiana, with some of his chief warriors, to discuss the terms of the treaty, and, while so en gaged, Gen. Canty and Mr. Thomas were treacher ously murdered, and Mr. Meachazn severely wounded by the Indians present on that occasion. Rattles fol lowed, and Capt. Jock and all or most of his tribe have been captured, and are now in tho hands of tho military authorities. Gen. Sherman, in a communi cation to the Secretary of War, dated the 3d insh, re commends that such of these Indians as have violated the military law be tried by a military, tribunal. This recommendation is approved by the Secretary of War. Instructions were prepared in 1868 by Francis Leiber, LB. D„ revised by a Board of Officers, of which Gen, £. A. Hitchcock was President, and, after approval by the President of tho United States, were published for the government of the armies of the United States in the field. Section 13 of these instructions is as fol lows : Military jurisdiction Is of two kinds. First—That which is conferred and defined by statute. Second— That which is derived from the common law of war. Military offenses under statute law must be tried fe the manner therein decided, but military offenses which do not come within the statute must be tried and pua ished under the common law of war. The character of the courts which exercise these jurisdictions de pends upon the local laws of each particular coun try. . In the armies of the United States the first Is ezer* • cised by Courts-Martial, while cases which do sot cone within the rules and articles or jurisdiction conferred by statute on Courts-Martial ore tried by Military Commißßiona. All authorities which I hare been able to examine upon this subject harmonize with these instructions. According to the laws of war, there is nothingmoro sacred than a flag of trace dispatched in good faith, and there can be no greater act of perfidy and treach ery than the assassination of Its beaters, after they hare been acknowledged and received by those to whom they are sent, No statute of the United States makes this act a crime, and, therefore, it is net pun ishable under the rules and articles of war, and, if punishable at xll, must be through a power derived from the usages of war. Kindred to the act in question of bad faith Is the braking of his parole by a paroled prisoner. When the United States were at war with Mexico, several officers of the Mexican army were tided by a Military Commission, composed of officers of the United States Army, and convicted and sentenced to bo shot and executed for breaking their parole. Numerous trials of. a similar nature took place during the war of theßehefiion, but there ore no statutory provisoes whatever upon the subject, and the whole power of the military authori ties in such coses is derived from the usages of war. On the 23d of August, 1865, & military commission, duly appointed, assembled in the City of Washington for the trial of Henry Wurz, who pleaded, among other things, that the Military Commission had no ju risdiction over either his person or over the subject matter of the charges and specifications, being a tri bunal (unauthorized Iby feither statute, military law, martial law, or well-established usage. But this plea was overruled, and he was convicted . upon - several charges. one of which was murder in violation of the laws and customs of war, and after his sentence he waa hung for his crimes. All the proceedings in this case derived tbdr authority and validity from the common law of war. Certain persons, it will be remembered, were tried and convicted in the same way for the assassination of President Unco In. Attorney-General Speed, in discussing this subject (Opinions, voh ii., p. 297), says': . We have seen that when war comes the laws and usages of war come also, and that during war they ■ are part of the laws of the -land. Under the Constitution, Congress may define and punish offenses against those laws, but in default of Congress defining those laws. and prescribing a pun ishment for their infraction and mode of proceeding to ascertain whether any offense has been committed, and what punishment is to be inflicted, the army must be governed by the laws and usages of war as under stood and practised by the civilized nations of tho world. Again; If the prisoner be a regular, unoffend ing soldier of tho opposite party to the war, he should be treated with all courtesy and kindness consistent with his safe custody. If he has offended against the laws of war he should have such trial and punishment as the laws of war require. A spy, though a prisoner of war, may be tried, condemned, and executed by military tribunal without a breach of the Constitution- A bushwhacker, jaybawker, bandit of war, rebel, as sassin, being a public enemy,may be tried, condemned, and executed as offenders against tho laws of war. The law of nations, which is the result of tho experi ence and wisdom of ages, has decided that jayhawkers, bandits, etc., are offenders against the law of nations and of war, and, as such amenable to the military. Our Constitution bos mode these laws part of the . law of .the land (see also Vattel, 359; 'Wheaton's lut. Law, 406; Woolsey’s Int. Law, 220; Bollock's Int. law, 400). Milligan’s case (4 Wallace, p. 2) bolds that under the circumstances herein stated & Military Commission to be illegal; but the facts there are entirely different from those under consideration. Milligan was a resi dent of a State not In rebellion. The courts were open and unobstructed for his prosecution. He waa neither a prisoner of war nor attached in any way to the mili tary or naval service of the United States. According to “ Instructions" heretofore referred to, no civil - tribunal has Jurisdiction in tho cases disclosed by the papers before me. Sections 40 and 41 thereof ore os follows: Beg. 40. There exists no law or body of autborite-. tlve rules of action between hostile armies except that branch of the law of nations which is called tho “ law and usage of war on land*'* Szo. 4U AH municipal law of the ground on which armies stand, or of the countries to which they belocg, 2s silent, and of no effect between armies in the field. Manifestly these rules are to a great extent, if hot altogether, correct, for It cannot be pretended that the United States soldier is guilty of murder if he kills a public enemy in battle, which would be the case if the municipal law was in force, and it has application to on act committed under such circumstances. AH laws and customs of civilized warfare may not be applica ble to on armed conflict with the Indian tribes upon our Western frontier, but the circumstances attend ing the • assassination of Cabby and Thomas ore such as to make ' their ' murder as much a violation of the laws of savage as of civilized war fare, and the Indiana concerned in it folly understood the baseness and treachery of their act. It is difficult to define exactly the relations of the Indian tribes to the United States, but as they haye been recognized as independent commnnUlw fox treaty-making purposes, and as they frequently carry on organized and pro tracted war*, they may properly, as it seems to me, bo held subject to those roles of warfare which a negotiation for peace after hostilities possible, and ■which make perfidy, like that in question, pttoiahaMs • by military authority. > '. Doubtless the war with the Moloca is practically'• ended, unless some of them should escape and renew hOßtilitieSy but it is right dor the United States, as there is; no agreement f Ox: .peace, to determine for themselves whether or not anything more ought to bo. done for the protection of the country or punishment ' of th&criines growing out ofthe war, V Soc, 59 of said instructions is as follows; ** A prisoner of war remains answerable for his crime committed against the captors, army, or people, - committed-before ha woe captured,-and lor-whichha has not been punished by his own authorities,” My conclusion, therefore, is that a Military Com mission may be appointed to try such of the Modoa -Indiana now-in custody, aa are cho^ed-wlth...offense against the recognized laws of war, and that if, upon such trial, any ore found-guflty. they may be subjected to autirptmiehment as tbooelaws require- and Very respectfully, your obedient servant, ‘ Geo.
