C3 tedious affair, and ia not yet closed, or, rathcr tho case is not yet settled Ahout 140 wit ness wcro examined. You are probably aware that the committeo of vigilance is ^ secret body?every member sworn to keep all proceedings which may be prop ped oV dopted by the body, and to give all needful ^.stance, even life itself if necessary, ?carry out Its aim and object. Yet, neverthele*/ trate*aM* i ?Ut' a,?d 1 wU1 tr7 t0 concen vm,r i a? sniall a space as possible for c 'UIHn8. Tbo executive committee is composed of about forty members, beaido two secretaries The president of this body is un derstood to bo William T. Coloman. Esq., a merchant of high and honorable standing hero and elsewhere The others are taken from all classes and conditions of men-mer r1? "' doctors, lawyers, fhipcarpenters, u.a sons, blacksmiths, carpenters, ironmongers, Ac ,?perhaps two thirds of the wholo are composed of tho mercantile jobbing houses of our city. Ike* are two or three French and uermaus in the executive body. ? S? Gen?ral Committee i3 composed of about 0 tucmbere, whoso names, residences and places of business, are duly enrolled, and feigned to tho Constitution Tho Committee is ?livi ied into about 35 divisions or companies three of cavalry. two of artillery, and tho re mainder of infantry. Theso are commanded by proper officer?, and aro weekly drilled, and each company take their turns f..r guard o; garrison duty. The whole 13 divided into battalions, and duly commanded by a Grand Marshal, his aids, Ac. In fact, it isono grand army, composed of our best and most highly esteemed citizens. 0 There aro about 100 men constantly on duty day and night, in and about tho garrison, without pay, fee or reward ; all voluntary ? tour hours off and on during tho 24 hours one company on during the day, another at night. The Police is governed by a Captain and his aids, all under pay. .Rations arc furnish ed to all on duty in the garrison. The Executive Committeo is sub-divided in to Committees, who have their Secretaries. The latter only are paid. There is also tho 44 Commissary Depart ment," "Quartermaster's" office, ?c. The Armory and Magazines aro all in per fect order, and everything is ready for action. The moment the alarm Tell is sounded?two taps of the Committee bell would, in 30 min utes, call out ten thousand men, night or day, half of the number armed and equipped, it as the law directs." I should have stated previously that tho various Sub-Committees are designated as follows :?Evidence Committee, Qualification Committeo, Investigating Committee, Military Committee, Prison Committee, Financo Com mittee The expenses of the General Committee are all paid by voluntary contributions by our eitizens. Tho total aud entire expenses up to this time, probably exceed $40 000. Tho present expenses of rent, clerk hiro ?io., probably at this moment do not exceed five hundred dollars per day, though they have run up to $700 Everything is done on the cish system. Dills are paid off daily from 11 to 12;?clerk hire, once a week (every Sat urday ) The Garrison is, in all respects, in good military order. Darracks for 1?0 men (relief guard) with blankets and mattrasses, suttlers' quarters, Ac. The establishment is even provided with horses, every thing ready and on tbe premises for a campaign. To show the true feeling of the people, I havo seen frequently men on duty, with their white locks, ovsr 60, and others 05 and 67 years of ago. Piobably a score of these old gentlemen do guard duty night and day ; watch at their posts, in or out ot doors, or wherever duty calls; and these too are men occupying the high and honor able calling of merchants, mechanics, dc. These men shoulder the musket, and drill as good as soldiers, attend the reviews, ?fcc. I have said previously that there were clergy men in the Committee, probably twonty in number, mostly Methodists, but a few of other denominations. lu nearly ull our churches (Protestant,) pastors have spoken and preach ed approvingly of the Committee and of their acts. I may enumerate tho Right Rev. Dish op Kip of the Episcopal Church, Rev Messrs. Driggs and Thomas of the Methodist Churches, Rev Mr. Cutler, of the Unitarian, Rev. Mr. Willy of tho New School Presbyterian. Rev. Mr Lacy of the Congregational, and Rev. Dr. Anderson of tho Presbyterian Old School, and many others whoso names I do not now recol lect. The Rev. Dr. Scott, I believe, is the only clergyman who has refrained from allu ding to the subject In his pulpit. He is, how ever, not friendly to the acts of the Commit tee, and the Elders and Trustees of Calvary Church made a formal request that he should not bring the matter before the congregation, bu' simply to preach Christ and llim Crucified to his hearers I have no doubt that had Dr. Scott been in the city at the time of the or ganisation of the Committee be would havo spoken out boldly against it. At all events, tno law and order men claim him as their friend and advocate. In regard to the publio press of the city, all are in favor and strongly endorse the acts of the Committee, save and except the Sun and Herald, whose circulation combined is not probably more than two-thirds of that of the liulletin, while the Alta, Chronicle, True Californian, Town Talk, Globo, and some threo Froncb papers, and all dailies fully indorse the Committee So also do all the weeklies, not exoepting tho Christian Advocate, the organ of the Methodists, and tho 44 Pacific" (new school ) The press throughout the State, and so also of tho large majority of the ci^ tens of the entire State, are 44 vigilantes," and in case of need are with us. Now, you and your readers are ready to ask, what of all this? What are you aiming to accomplish ? I answer, to rid the city and State of the murderers, rowdies, ballot-box staffers, and such like men, who have stolen our birth-right and made slaves and hirelings of those whom they by force have driven frr?oi the polls at the mouth of the pistol, shoulder, or knife ; and who have controllnd our elec tions by the use of false bottomed ballot boxes, and tbu4 foiled the known and express will of the people. 1 will, in passing, my that the strongest opponents of the Committee are Southern Democrat*; but few of any othar party or section, except Irish Catholics, keei. aloof, and some of those were kept out with the idea that tho original movements was for political effect, and of a " Know Nothing" stripe ; but this is not true in any respect. In fact, I know of leading party men who were inclined to talk loud, (with a leaning towards politics,) in tho Committee rooms, who were politely notified to withdraw as members, and this f>r no other reason, than to prevent the introduction of politics into |the Committee's garrison. Now. to come back to the all-abs^rblng and engrossing themo and topic of the day?the Terry trial. I beg, first, to remark, that if not mistaken, it is necessary for the Kxecu tive Committee, acting as u jury, to give h majarify vote to decide a caso ; that done, their verdict, and the entire testimony taken on the trial, go to a board of delegates far concurrence. Theso latter aro composed of the captains of each division, and two men chosen from their respective companies; so that there aro with the lield < fhcers .also del egate) some 112 delegates. A two-thirds vote (or majority) id nccessary to carry a verdict of guilty or acquittal. It is generally under stood that in tno Terry caso thero was a tie iu iLo executive body ; or, it not so, a bare majority in favor <-f acquittal; while, on the other hand, the delegates are almost to a man in favor of a verdict of guilty. If the tun combined bodies cannot harmonize, of course a tton-suit will bo the result, which will probably bo the last of the cape I think now that tho chances are decidedly in favor of Terry's acquittui by the Committee. lio may be sentenced to banishment from the Stato ; but the difficulties iu the way are so great in this case, that it woul l bo almost an im possibility to carry into execution any sen tence that might be pronounced against the Judge of the supreme court of California, with several years of his unexpired term yet to serve out Bat any man guilty of even one- j half of the acts charged and proven against D S. Terry, should resign his high ofiice and let the peoplo of the State of California write guilty or not guilty upon his brow. The blow inflicted by Terry up<?n Hopkins, with his knife, passed directly through the velvet coat collar and neck handkerchief, and came with in about one inch of passing entirely through the neck of his victim ; and yet Hopkins livef, and is riding about tho streets. I trust an- | other fortnight will decise tho Terry case. His wife comes to seo him daily It ischarged upon the Masonic fraternity, that thoy havo been to work and influenced tho vote of the Executive Committee iu thi> case. Mrs Terry | has, at all evonts, taken some kind of a de cree, in order to bring a lever to bear foie how on tho case As for Gen Volney E. Howard and hi* ariny, commanded by J. Necly Johnson, Gov ernor of tho State, I have to add that their numbers are but few, and that there is no danger of a collision with tho people, unless the Committee should sentence Ju lgo Terry to be banished from tho State ; anl as they (the law and order party) have twotteamors in constant readiness for a rescue, wo would, in that event, and that only, have a collision. But that event will not occur, in my opinion. Terry will walk out free. I hope he will fct It ait vacate his seat < n the bench Thus far I had written, and read to a friend in the secret?, when he penned and added the following remarks regarding the Committee and the Terry case, which I fully indorse : "Judge D. 6 Terry has boen tried by the jo iplc of the Statr, and fouud guilty He has been tried by tho Executive Committee with the same results Ho has been fully anl fairly tried by the Board of Delegates, and , they find him guilty, not only of the assault upon Hopkins, nut upon sundry other perssn^ during his California life Enough has bocr. proven against him to condemn him forever in the eyes of the people of this State ; and we predict that when he leaves the prison bwosc of the Committee of Vigilance, he will never dare to aspire to his former position of Ju lge of the Supreme Court of California. The tes timony will soon be published to the world. " Ten thouaand rumors are afloat as to tho finale of this ease, and predictions are abun dant as to tho disposal of Terry, and its effect upon the people and the Committee. Some predict an immediate dissolution, and a gen eral disbanding of the association Others that the peoplo will suddenly rise up, in con junction with tho dis3enting (or minority) Committee men. and will imprison and prose cute. and harrass and torture, the active mem bers of the Committee of Vigilant. But al I jw your humble informant to suggest the fal lacy cf all such croakings First, it is not possible, in the eyes of the General Committee, for the Executive body to err; and now as wo listen to the cry of the enraged General Committeo for justico to be dealt out to Terry speedily, and soino say ? hit blood,' others 8;?y his banishment from the State, and all appear to be unan.moua in op posing his liberty, yet the Executive Commit tee, as a body, have only to speak, all is quiet?all is harmonious. Some may doubt the power of the Committeo to do as they please with Terry. For six long weeks tfcey hive hold him captive, and his tr'.ends havo I canvassed the State, have made inflammatory speeches, have resorted to falsehood, and ad other measures, to arouso the peoplo and rally them to tbo relief of Judge Terry ; to rescue him from the so-called 'infuriated mob. But 4Fort Vigilance' etill holds the Judge, as surely and as securely as on the day ot his assault and arrest. Some doubt the ability of this Committee to punish Terry, but rest as sured, that simply because they have and hold that power, they will not abuse it, in this case, or in any other." Thus writes my friend. Now in conclusion let mo add that this Vigilance Committeo is composed of the poor as well as the rich. I havo eoen two men at one time standing son tinel with muskets on their shoulders on the sand bag3 in front of Fort Vigilancc, that wero worth each their hundred thousand dol lars in cash ; while at the same time, by their side stood men who had left their work shops, thoir daily toil, and lo3t their usual daily gains, for the purpose of doing what we all be lieve is a duty we owe to our mothers, wives, children and property. Algf&t, oth,?P M It it understood that tho Committee of \ ig ilance ship three prisoners to-day, banished for crimes and misdeeds that tho laws have failed to reach?Bitchio, Toy and Bulger. In referonco to my previous letter of this date sent by Wells, Fargo A Co'e Express, al low me t> fay in continuation of my remarks regarding the committee of Vigilance,?that Judge Terry tea*present during his trial be fore the Executive Committee, and that Myers Traett, Esq., (liquor merchant,) acted as ooan sel for Terry, and that Thos. J. L. Smiley, Esq , (auctioneer,) was the counsel for the people s General Committee The case occu pied nearly three weeks, simply in the exami nation of witnesses. It is said by those who heurd it, that Mr. Smiley's summing up speech was one of marked shrewdness and*ability ; that Mr. Truett's wes also able, but that ne was assisted by a brief supposed to be drawn up by the prisoner at the bar. It must not be inferred from this, that no others were allowed to comment on the testi mony as taken before the executive. Every member has the right and privilege tx> s( eak, and to give his own views and opinionsI at large, so that *11 may be heard. I will not enlarge, but fimply remark.that the Executive Committee hare invited all the delegate* to meet them in their Chamber* at b o'clock this Tuesday evening, for a conference with a view to united notion of the two bodies in rr gar I to a final disposition of the Terrr cm*. My own opini >o is, at this moment, that tl a testimony in this case will speedily be pah liehod to the world in full; that after the pe p'e at large have given in their verdict. Terry will he told that he ha? been f ?und guilty ..f an s nult, with attempt to kill Hopkioa ; but that the Committee have not any way cr man ner of meting out a proper or le.*arved punish ment ; but that he gooa out fc?tbe world, fur the people to punish as they may deem it and proper; that the Committee will add ? ?'Your guard? are removed from your eell, and you are at perfect liberty to go out and face your constituent* of the State ?? This 1 predict will be thw end ; this must be the pan lshment, if the committee desire to avoid ft conflict with the State or Federal (ioTern mont Ovtaiio. Educational. PRIVATE Tf'ITlON.
