WASHINGTON, D. C., MONDAY, JANUARY 4, 1858. NO. 1.54t?. A M E>t; im A jithv room. A Thrilling Story. I once had the extreme felicity of leaving my business to serve upon "thrJury.*- I plead in *11 manner of way* for release, but to no effect I could not swear that I was deaf, nor blind, nor yet non eompobut did tell them that I bad already formed an opinion. They asked mo if my opinion would prevent me from re teiving the testimony in gvod faith, and render ing a verdict according t., it. f replied that of conrse I should weigh the evidence carefully, 1 then informed that I "would do. ' The case to be tried was one of arson?then a capital offence?and the prisoner at the bar was a young man. named Charles Ambold. whom I had known from boyhood, and who was natur ally one of the finest youths of the town where he resided. He had a widowed mother who depended upon him for support; and his circle of friends was large and choice. I was morally ^ certain that he did not commit the crime, and k^TL? *m *urt?- thoffe who wtre friendly to h.m me on the panel. and had me retained. the trial commenced and we twelve men took oor seats in the jury bo*. I had a very respec whnm 71-!11 L?'??D'-V th*TO one man m i> \r 1 86e there. This man was Monlton Warren. He was a dark-faced sinister IT? V I?7rLatJ Ienst to ln? 1 know that young Ambold had one fault. He had recent ly been addicted to drink, and had been known will ,K,r.e['Ut.\ bou!,e3 Xt was one of those wKi?l? k k jw n burned- f<?r setting fire to which he had been apprehended. i iITj r had often tried to persuade Charles m lhe cour!,e he was pursuing, lie had repeatedly promised me that he would re form and as repeatedly had he broken away. ?*i k kDj , \? L,m of hi" P??r mother, until he had wept like a child; but the effect as not lasting. Thero was a power of tempta tion more effective than any influence I could e. ? He would fall away into this evil com panionship. and for a while his manhood was gone. One or two abandonod women had gainedI great power over him. and upon them he w&9to<| much of hi.* substance. And I knew that this very man who was now upon thejury?this Moulton Warren-was the one who had done more than all others to lead the poor youth away. It was Warren who had drank with him, and who had led him away to those more abominable haunts of sin and polln tion. Why was ho upon tho jury> I could only account for it upon the ground that Char ley still supposed him to be his friend. The Poor scorchcd insect was still ignorant of the flame that scorched him He really believed t-u ? n arren was his friend. <? Tu ur'nl. Comn,eoced. The indictment set forth that Charles Ambold had. "with mulice aforethought, and with all sorts of wicked and felonious intents, set fire to a certain dwelling house, thereby endangering human life. This dwelling, a* I have already intimated, was a low sink of iniquity, where the abandoned of fcoth sexes were wont to congregate; and where the youthful prisoner had spent much of his tlD6. The evidence for tho prosecution cam* on. and I was startled. One afier another gave in their testimony, some of them very reluctantl v. and I was frightoned when I saw how plainly it all pointed to the prisoner as the guilty party. Nsveral eredible witnesses swore that they had heard him threaten to burn the house down ; and others had heard him say repeatedly that he wished it was burned down! Then came *?T?ral witnesses?three of the prominent citi icns?who saw him lurking about tho premises on the night of the fire W ith regard to the provocation on the prison er a part for such a deed, it was proved upon his own admission, that be had been ill-treated uaare and that he had sworn u? have revenge. And furthermore, it was proved that he had been heard to say tha\ his salvation of soul and body depended upon the destruction of that Nextcame more testimony stronger still. The tire had been set in a back basement room, where shavings and other stuff for kind ling were kept. Entrance had been gained through a back window, which had been partlv pried open with a stout kniie. This basement wall was of brick, and beneath tho sash was round the blade of a knife which had been broken off in trying to raise it (the sash.) The blade wm recognised as belonging to the prison er s knife A maker of cutlery had made a knue to order for Ambold only a month pre ?loua. and he know the blado at once, and swore to it' But this was not all The fire had been evi dently set first to the shavings which lay upon the stone floorbut piled up sgainst a wooden partition. Thia floor daia|, and some of tho euter shavings even, were not wholly burnod up. Hut iu?t at tho edge, where the fire com menced, lay a piece of paper, rolled up, and about half burned, and fr-m the manner in which it lay, tt was verv evident that the fire bad been .et with it. This piece of rolled pa per had been ignited by a match, a number of which were scattered around, and as soon as it was on fire it bad been laid upon the fl, or. with the burning end just in the shavings Of course, these shaving- were in a blaze instantly; but the paper torch being upon tho lamp stones! had not burned wholly up. And this paj>er was found to be a part of a letter belonging to the prisoner! A letter which he had recoived from a friend of bis ^and afriend of mine ' only a week before ! That friend had to ootne forward and swoar that piece of charred paper was a part of a letter he had written to the prisoner * Thisfricnd s name was Stephen <iranr He was a young merchant, and the let i! i written for the purpose of inducing Ambold to reform. Stephon tried hard to avoid testifying for he kuew. as did others, that the Are must have been set with thnt identical pa per; but be was summoned, and he could not deny his own chirography. The case looked darkT Many witnesses were willing to teetify to the prisoner s good qualities but no one could swear that he was not dissi pate I and degraded. That house had l>een to hi in indeed, a region internal. Its destruction cried out for his bodily life; and its existence had long been eating away his soul. l???r Charlie I had before been sure of his inno cence; but now I could only shake my head and pity him! FLVj'j 1?? was allowed to speak for himself lie laid be wm innoccnt of the crime imputed to him He said that he had threatened to burn that house down?that he had said about all that had been sworn to. And. furthermore he was around the house on the night of the fire He was not ten rods <>fl when the flames burst and ho was one of the first to give the alarm. He had uttered one cry of fire when he noticed where the flames must have originated, and the thought cauie to him if he was found there, be might be suspected of having set the flro. so he run away He also said that three m*htJ> before the conflagration, he bad been robbed in that house His pocket* had been emptied of every thing in tbem. and his pocket b^ok containing forty dollars in money and some valuable papers had been taken. He had lb gone there on the night of the fire to try and jwrsuade them to give him back his money and ? i#*P*ra?or at Uaat U. g?et back what he could W hen be got there, he saw a man go iu whom he did not wi?h to see, so he had oung around, waiting for him to depart. He was around by the back of the building once?and that was an hour before the fire broke out. He knew ?othing?nothing. He clasped his hands, and with his tearless eyes raised toward heaven, be called on (lod to witness that he was innocent! I have told you that I knew hiia well. I knew him so well, that from that moment I fc?*w him to be innocent! 1 knew his very ???l I knew how free aud ope* it was?ah. bow sinfully so! I knew there was no false hood ib the story he told us. ~ " My boy is innocent! My boy is innocent !*' ' heard the cry?and I saw an old womau siak hash into the arms of a male companion It was his poor mother Her heart was well nigh broken. Yet I saw that all this had hut little efleet upon the mass of spectators. The prisoner p coarse of dissipation?feifl ?a?j threats against the house?and tha very fact of his having been robbed and abused there were heavy against him The counsel for the prisoner made his speech, which was labored and hard He was foolish enough to intimate that if his olient r/w around at the back part of the bouse more than once, he must hare been intoxicated In short his {lea had better been left out. The evidence e could not shake, and be did all be oould to suppose evidence, some of it most absurd and ridiculous. I afterwards learned that Moulton \\ arren engaged that lawyer for the youthful prisoner ! The government attorney made his plea. It was plain, straightforward, and very conclusive. The judge finally gave his charge. He was fair and candid He reviewed the evidence carefully, and pointed out such a* bore heavily upon the case. He told us if there was a lin gering doubt in our ininds we must give the prisoner the benefit of it. But I could plainly see that there was no doubt in his mind. We?the jury?were conducted to our room by an officer, and there locked up. A silence of some minutes ensued. Moulton Warren was the first to speak : " Well," he said. " I s'pose there's no need of our bein' here a great while. Of course we all know that the prisoner must have set fire to ! the house ?" Thcro was something in the manner of that man as he said this which oxcited my ouriosity ?I won't shv it was suspicion then?only curi osity. He snoke with 11 forced effort at cnlm | ness which 1 at once perceived. The moro I looked at him the nv>rc I became strongly ner vous and uneasy, wondered why he should be I so anxious to be rid ot the case, and have Am bold convicted. I knew that he had frequent ed that evil house, and that he had done much towards tempting Charley to dissipation. I knew he was in that house on the night on which the prisoner was robbed?for Charley | h*d told me so when I visited him in bis cell. ; 1 had then asked the unfortunate youth if ho was sure Warren was his friend. O. be was sure of it. He should have bunted him up on the night of his robbery, only they told him Warren had gone By the by. the foreman proposed that we should each take up a piece of paper and write down our opinion, and then compare notes. I went to my hat, which I had placed upon a table with a number of others, ana took out a sheet of paper. I bad zot half way back to the table 1 when I found I had made a mistake. I had got part of a letter from another man's hat. I was about to turn back when the name of the writer of the letter arrested my attention. I looked more closely, and road?" Stephen (irant.'" Next I caught this sentence? "flnd now dear Charles, if not for yoarown. yet for your mother's sake, let me hope you will do better." I started as though a shot bad struck me. I hold in my hand the other half of the sheet which had been used to fire the burned house! I went to the table and found that 1 had taken it from Warren's hat! I looked to see if I had been observed?and I had not. I put the pa Ecr back, and then took a piece from my own at. which was of the same pattern as the other, and by its side. I returned to the table and sat down. War ren was by my side. He bad written his opin ion, and took a knife from hid pocket to cut it from the large sheet. " Let me take your knife a moment, if you please," I said to him. Without hesitation he did so. I took it?it wax CharUs A mhold't knife '?the large blade wut {on* ' With all the power I possessed I restrained my deep emotion, and having cut ray paper I handed back the knife. Why should he have that knife so boldly about him. I af erwards learned. He had not worn those pantaloons before since tho night of the fire; and now he used the knife probably, without the least remembrance of tne loss it had sustaiued during a very peculiar piece of work, to the execution of which it was made subservient. We talked for some ten minutes, and I found that eleven of the jury were bent on rendering a vordict of guilty; though most of them were in favor of recommending the prisoner to mercy. Moulton Warren was decided. He had no mer cy at all. Presently I started up and pretended to be faint. I said I must go out a few moments. I kicked at the door and the deputy sheriff came He heard my plea and let mc out. As soon as we bad gained a safe distance. I told him all. He was astonished. He went away, and when he came back he brought the district attorney, and the district judge and the sheriff I told again what I had seen?I issured them that I knew what I had seen?that it wa.% no mere suspicion. And I explained, too, Warren's manner in the jury room, and his former con nection with the prisoner, and his known char acter. The offioers went away, and at the end often minutes they returned with a constable added to their number, and this constable had a fresh ly written instrument in his hand. The sheriff bade me to point out the hat to them as soon as we entered the room. The door of the room was opened, and I pointed them to the hat. The sheriff took it, and asked whose it was. Warren leaped to his feet and seised it. but he was held back. Word was instantly sent to the judge that the jury could not aeroe. They were dis charged, and then Moulton Warren was searched. The knife wa.* found upon him, and his behavior at once exposed his guilt. The presence of that letter was accounted for by him in a dozen different ways within an hour. A new jury was imnannelled, and Charles Am bold was acouittcu. Shortly afterwards Warren was tried, and it was plainly proved that he had set fire to the house, and that the woman who kept it was to have been burned up in it. as he hud contrived to lock her into her room shortly after setting the fire. She had incurred his displeasure in various ways, and this was bis revenge Not only she, but twoof her girls had suspected hiiu frotn the first, but they dared not complain, for feur he would not be eouvicted. and would then be sure to murder them The hardened villain confessed his guilt after he had been condemned, and then it was that he tobl how he happened to be so careless in regard to the paper and knife. It was he who had rokibed Ambold. and when he took the old letter from his hat to use for a torch in setting the lire, he did not noticc what it was, and even when that partly burned half had been exhibit ed in court he had entirely forgotten that he had torn oft the other half and put it back in his hat. as be must have done. The letter bud hewn found in Ainbold's pocket book, and he had kept it ln-cause in it the youth was warned | agxinst his influence He confessed that he I held a slight idea of calling the writer to an ac count when it should become convenient. With regard to the knife, it was as 1 before stated, lie took that also from Ainbold's .toeket, and put it in his own; and on the night of the fire lie used it to pry up the sash, and when be had broken it he put it back in his picket and for got it Thus was Charley saved?and saved from uioro than an ignominious death. too. He was saved to be a noble, virtuous man; and his mo ther one* more took ample delight and joy in the love and tender care of her only child. When Charles Ambold knew that Moulton Warren had expiated his crime upon the gal lows be sat down and pondered upon his past life. The thought of his old companion being hanged, sent a strange thrill through his frame But he was able to traee out, Clearly and logi cally. this terrible result from the course of life the ill-fated man had pursued. He shuddered as be remembered how far he had gone in the same course himself; and he woaable to see the ?miv safe path for any youth. Not only must be shun temptation?not only keep clear 0 even the appearance of vice?hut, above all, must be shun evil companionship. A youth may make all the good resolutions thought oob afford, but if he continues one evil companionship be if not safe ! Special Notices. To THK ClTIZKSS or WASHlftaTOll.?
