LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. Criminal CortT ? The Election After our report cloned on Saturday, the jury who bad had a recess, were palled into Court and d?tn?*?ed by his honor until thl* morning at ten o'clock, a* there was no poaaibility, froiu the lengthy debate of the counsel upon the instruction* offered by the District Attorney, of coining to the arguments in The rase during that day. Mr. Bradley went on and concluded his re marks* showing why he objected to the lnutruc tions proffered by the counsel for the prosecution. Mr Key replied, contending in the course of his remarks that the act of tbe flavor was just and legal; and that the act of the President in acceding to his application for the marines, fortified by an affidavit which was ?wr?rn to by a respectable citizen of Washington, and granting him diacre tionary^>ower to use them according to the eal geacjes of the case, was a proof of the confidence repoee* In hits by tbe President to do and aet as the danger and peril of tbe citizens tint* disturbed might in the ease seem to warrant. He said that U was contended by the other side that the riot had Teased when the Mayor first went to the polls; what did tbe Mayor find to be tbe case when be arrived there ? he found the barric ade* broken and tbe rtolis cloned. All was quiet, said the counsel for the defence, but it was the quiet that prevails on the battle field after tbe fight is over, and no victim is left to make resistence. Was it not manifestly the mayor's duty, under these circumstances, to em ploy such force as bad been placed in his hands ancl a: his command ? He dirt employ that force, and legally, too: be used those means for the maintenance of tbe public peace and good order in the community, which peace hail been fla grantly violated. Was It not remarkable tbat the judges of election had taken the unwarrantable responsibility of closing the polls In violation of all law at a time when, according to tbe testi mony which had l>een given on tbe part of the defence, all Was quiet, and the voting was pro ceeding peaceably ' And upon what plea, then, did they do this f It was upon the vapory excuse springing out of a sickly and absurd sentimental ity that they w?ild not roceive votes with the flashing bayonets of the marines directed towards their breasts What right had they to refuse compliance with the express provisions of tbe iaw, when ail was peace and quietness around them * The marines were a square off; they could not have been afraid of them at the time the polls were closed. He contended that the conduct of tha judges ought to be held up to uni versal opprobiuin, and they consigned to ever lasting shame. Mr. Key quoted from the act of Congress of 1814. contained in the statutes at Large, to show " that the Mayor shall see thai the laws of the Corporation shall be duly executed, and that he snail punish any disobedience of those laws on tbe part of it* officers.'* Mr. Key cited many other authorities to sustain the action of the Mayor and in support of his in ductions He contended that the commissioners had violated the laws by closing the polls, and that it was but proper, under the existence of all these facts, to a*k the Court to instruct tbe jury that their act was illegal He submitted to the Court that tkti/ were to all intents and purposes guilty of a riot; and he asked the Court to instruct tbe jury that tbe marines were on tbe ground le gally and lor the exercise of a legal purpose Mr Ellis arose and said that Mr. Key had re ferred to the Constitution of the United Stat** to show tbe authority of the President to call out the marine* and interfere in tbe case now before the Court The argument was. that tbis portion of the Constitution gave the President the power. He contends that it gave no such authority to the President At this present time the President is not the United States?not quite His power then, is not here, but in the legislation of Con gress on the Constitution. Mr. Ellis quoted from the law to show in what cases the President may call out the military He contended that there were but three cases in which the President may call out the military ? they were only in case of an insurrection, an in vTision, and when necessary to tbe sustaining nf the law. He contended that the authorities cited by the District Attorney were not applicable to tbe matter now pending, that the law did not au thorize the Mayor to do what tbe District Attor ney contended it authorized him to do ?On closing his remarks, and Mr Key not reply ing. the Court adjourned till Monday morning TWKLP7U DAT. The trial of the election rioters was resumed this morning. , In consequence of the somewhat hurried aid indistinct manner in which the instruct,on*?<skel by tbe District Attorney were read in Court on .Saturday, tbe reporters for tbe city papers, the Star Included, failed to catch them with exact ness We accordingly give them to-day In a corrected form: If the jury believe, from the evidence, that the Mayor of the eity of Washington made an appii eatfon to the President of tbe United Mates and the Secretary of tbe Navy to order out the United State* marines to assist hint in preserving the public peace, and the said marines were accord ingly so ordered by the Secretary of the Navy and were marched by the direction of the Mayor to the place Of disturbance, to wit: to the first precinct of the Fourth Ward, then the said Mayor and the said marines were there legally. If tbe jury believe, from the evidence, that the commissioners of the election at the said tirst precinct of the Fourth Ward closed the polls of said precinct for no other reason than the one given, that is, the presence of the said marines then the act of saidcommissioners in closing sait^ polls was an Illegal act; and the said Mayor, bv I' virtue of his office, and in the execution thereof 'possessed full power and authority to order the said polls to be opened ; and all prisons, who, in wvtolent and turbulent manner, acting together either by previous concert, or by concert sprii# lug up at tbe time, opposed the efforts of the said Mayor, either to have the said polls opened, or to preserve the public peace, are guilty of a riot This morning, Judge Crawford gave his an swer to these instructions, as follows ; With reference tot he fir>.t instruction, the Court sa:d that much argument had been expeuded in relation to the President's power to order out the military. The fifteenth clause of the eighth sec tion of article of the Constitution of the United States which confers upon Congress the power to provide for the calling forth of the militia to ext cute the laws of the United States, to suppre-s insurrection, and repel invasion, has been referr.d to. as well as the act of February i?, 1?U5, in the first volume of the statutes at Large page v.<| ? but the terms of the law itself show 'that it ap plies to the States, and to a difierent class of coy . ,/tiugencies than tbe one that is alleged to exist in tbisca?e. The act of lrV7 La? also ln?en cited' -*>ut the Court was of opinion that this provision' in the Constitution and the laws pasued under it have no application to the inquiry submitted to the Jury. 1 here was another clause in the second ae. iton of article two of tbe Constitution which ^ake* the President commander-in-chief of the ?rmy and navy of the United States, and section three of the same article makes It his duty to take care that the laws be faithfully executed It was under these two last-named sections of the constitution tbat his Honor apprehended the power to call out the military forces in aid of the civil authorities would be found. The fifteenth clause of section eight of article one of the con stitution. under the appropriate head of what Congress shall have power to do. bestows lei?i? lative power; and section two of article two im rfv duty. The Chief Magis trate of the I mted States, acting for this District possesses the power which was exercised in this instance: and being the head of the proper De partment. the act of the Secretary of the Navy . '2??nU 8nd P'^po***, the act of the President The authority, tjjeo, according to the evidence which the jury bad heard, was a neces aary application of the power granted by Con gress. and was properly and lawfully exercised by the Executive upon thla occasion The Pres ident could not m.tke himself personally cogni zant of all the circumstances whenever he was called upon to act The representations made to him were such ?> not only to justify, hut to re quire the Exe. ulive of the United Mates to d.> all that he did do. 1 he marines and the officers who commanded them were legally at tbe polls of the first precinct cf the Fourth Ward for they were there in obtdience to order*. i-T'u k?4 the to ,JC tUer^ ?!*> in his official character as Mayor, either to uuell tbe riot or to see that the laws of ti^city Cre drily executed. Although the act of the _ tive ill this case Was authorized by law and re quired by duty, the Mayor was using a discre t.onary power when h. applied to the ? ercta^y of tbe .Navy for the assistance of the marines for the simnlc fact that he. and h-as e'Ve" f? ofrfcer similarly s.tiiatrd. decide when the proper time has arrived lo ,?ake ?lril "t." plication, shows that it lie* at his discrel ion stfn an inferior offieer must in the first instauce r'es? to tbe evil power, and it may be mater^m know whether he has done so; but if the civil power is too weak to suppress the riot, or If the riot or disturbance be so great and so dangerous that It must be apparent that any attempt tooueil ?t by the civil officers must be absurd?that such an attempt must necessarily be unsuccessful, and would only be followed by the acofflng at and derision of tboae who should attempt it, and by an increased tumult?the Court was of the opin , 'bat resort might be had to other means, with out further recourse to tbe civil power. If the jury believe, from the evidence, that tie r'.d Chat^!* t ?f"1 ftUaeJl UP?H lh* rlotera, and whatever of violence and turbulent conduct and acts proceeded from tbe defendants, or frou any otbe;. connected with them, were resorted tola reaiating such attack, then it would be their fuilty of a riot at that particular time and hour to, tb. duu^rW, oX' iX' ahape. except so far as it was the around ..no,, which the military were brougbt^ut But If *houl<1 believe from the evidence in the caJ that the marine., after their arrival at the p?fu - wbere they were then legally, without any ojfc,, or violence upon their part were first a*sait~d in a violent and turbulent manner, according to u e. vlous eoocert. whether remote or immediate on ?W??d?Ml vr ?ny Qt tfcfpa. Fl'h or without connection with other? who ?rf not now upon trial, Dor the purpose of driving oft tbe marines in spite of all opposition, then the defendants or so many of tbein as thus assailed marines would be guilty of * riot. With regard to the se< ona instruction asked by the District Attorney, the Court remarked that tbe conduct of the elections In the city of Wash, iugton Is couflded by law to their Commission ers, to be ?ppoinied as tbe law prescribe*. Their duties are expressly pointed out by the law, and among this It is specified that they shall keep the polls open from seven o'clock in tb* morning until seven o'clock In the evening. The Coin, missioners cannot lawfully close the polls be tween those hours; and nothing short of some overruling necessity which makes it impracti cable for tbein to receive the votes offered, or to continue the election, will excuse the closing of the polls. If the jury ?>ellrve, from the evidence, that the polls were closed in the first precinct ol the Fourth Ward. In tbte language of the prayer, for no other reason than the presence of the ma rines, then tbe act of closing them was Illegal. The Mayor of the City of Washington has no powers other than those which are given him bythe acts of Congress and the laws of the Corporate authorities, fussed in pursuance and by virtue of the powers conferred upon Ihem by Congress Among the duties of the Mayor, it is enjoined upon hint by the act of Congress of 181*2 to see tliat the law* of the Corporation be duly execu ted. That provision was not repealed, as had been asserted here. The act of May 13, 1*?0, Sec tion one. repeals only so much of the law of 1812, as Is inconsistent with the provisions of said art of 1*20; and tbe law of May 1?, 1848, section one, continues the set of 1820 in full force for twenty years with the repeal of acts In conflict with its own provisions. The Court remarked as to the recited duty of the Mayor as had been asserted: the Mayor had the authority to request or demand that tbe polls should be opened, but he could not enforce that d ma rid, for there was no specific power conferred upon him for that purpose. If he demanded of the commissioners to open the polls when closed and did not take any further steps that such de mand should be carried into effect, It was no mo o than his duty required. And lastly. If the jury believe that the defendants with or without the conjunction of others not named in the Indict ment, numbering at least three persons, with a determination to assist one another against those who should oppose them, acted together for the purpose of thwarting the efforts of the Mayor to nave the polls opened, and to oppose his exer tions to preserve tbe public peace, then the de fendants, or so many of them as thus acted, would be guilty of a riot. Mr. Key then entered upon his address to the jury, which was quite universally conceded to be one of remarkable power, and induced some of his auditory to insinuate that the District Attor ney had been 44 playing posfum'1 In claiming to be in ill health, as no sick man could make a two hours' speech of such sustained vigor. Mr. Key was followed by Mr. Carrington, who Is speaking in behalf of Charles Spencer as this report closes. Police Reports.?'The reports of tbe late Chief of Police, J. W.

The Crave Deserve the Fair?On Satur day night, a pitched battle came off near Twelfth street and the canal between two middle-aged white men. all about the question which of the two was entitled to the favors of a female in their company. They peeled for the combat, and their Dulcina seated herself on a log, and, maintaining the strictest impartiality, waited for the result; and, on the conclusion of the com lint, walked oft with the victor.
