Hia remarks wonld be baaed upon one single complaint: that be bad not been tried upon tke issue of the indictment alone, but upon genA. eral prejudice Pl^ W bat waa tbe case as made out by tbe prosecution? l bat Barbie had told one Benjamin Cham>>era tbat he (Bargie) waa authorized to dr;?w upon one William Francia Mcl^ean, of New Orleans for sunie m?n?? ?K?? l.? ' ?,J 1 f t | ??? uc ^uar^jr; w iiiifu Chamber* to indorse his draft; that he said, fur, ^ tber, that Chambers, In all probability, would Incur no risk by indorsing the draft; that Chambers ?/ndmioipl. in fact, that be himself was to collect the money; and that, under these representation*. Chambers had Indorsed the draft liargie had the paper cashed by a business man; It was sent to New Orleans, it did not find McLean there; It wa returned protested, and Chambers paid it bargie not being able to meet the obligation at once, this prosecution was brought Thus stood tbr whole case, upon which he had been convicted .Now for the defense. It was proven by four witnesses that Bargie was authorized to draw upon Mr Lean at the time for a larger amount tban the one named It was proven th;it h?? rirpw tUr jastitiab.e belief that his draft would be paid It wu proven that be bad rendered such important servim to Chambers na to make It proper that that old man should do bim any reasonable favor. It was proven that wben the draft was returned pre*e*??d. be n?*-d every effort, in the midst of sickness even, to protect his indc rvr against loss. It w*s proven that the money, principal and interest, bad been tendered to Chambers, and by him refused And it would have been proven, i bad the Court permitted, that Chambers and his on were atheists, believing in no state of future > existence, acknowledging no accountability to a supreme Godi and that therefore tbey were incompetent as witnesses. It wns established, be\oi>dail question, that the accused bore a high cfcaiacter for personal honor, and that his associations forbade the suspicion of his stooping to a false pretense for the purpose of obtaining mnn?v I HU was the x( '?.? of the defense * At the very start. the defense was met by a mere le^al quibble. The Court Lad ruled that, after Chambers and bis son were sworn In chief, no testimony could be admitted directly as to their religious belief. It was In vain that counsel offtred to bring forward their own declarations to many parties; the Court clung with stubborn obftf t>Mna> v tea decision which was manifestly against the prisoner And so these two men, whose own admissions marked them Infamous, were placed a upon the stand; and all their imperfections were varnished over by the authority of the Court The prisoner knew but little of law, in its forms nud Its quibblt-s; but he bad some acquaintance with the philosophy of justice. It was a safe | principle, that the deed must be qualified by the lntrDt; that there can be no crime, without the intent to commit crime. Mow, if Bargie was authorized to draw on McLean?if he had a rea a? a " uiiautc uope mai ucu-an would pay bis draft at maturity?what reasonable motive could he bave bad for defrauding Chambers? Tbat draft was the paper upon wblcb Chamber* was responsible; tbat draft McLean might reasonably, from tbe fiirest b'utiuecs point of view, have been expected to meet How, then, in the name of common s-nse, could there hava been any possible Intent to rteiraud Chamber*? In order to establish tbat intent, the prosecution would properly have been obliged to prove a direct conspiracy between Burgle and M< |,ean; for the authority to draw, and thr reasonable hope tbat tbe draft* would be paid, were so clearly set forth by the defense, that not even the sophistry of the District Attorney had ventured to intrude upon this forbidden ground Tbe priaoner did not blame the District Attorney for having prosecuted tbe matter vigorously But be did bume that person for having sublimated the grossnes* of tbe indictment; for havii.g treated it as the alchemists treat tbe baser metals, for Laving played the part of a Peter Funk, galvanizing a worthless material, and lending a ? ounterfcit hue of reflned gold to a cas? that wait l?-aden in its stupidity, and braxen in iu marvelout ;nd unprecedented insolence Ye*, the prisoner would say unprecedented. For, little as be knew of legal forms or history, b? would wager bis life, that there had never been such a case of false pretences in any record, that ever emanated from the brain of one calf to be bound in the skin of another. When every other foothold bad been knocked away from under the prosecution, the District Attorney made his last desperate stand upon the all-g"d fact that old Chambers understood that kt ^was to collect the money Now, said the District Attorney, If the jury believe that Chambers understood this from tbe representations of Bargie, then they mnst find Bargie guilty.

The prisoner knew ttaat he wai sjwaklng only by courtesy cf the Court, he desired, so far as he could control himself, to be respectful to th? Court; but. if be bad rend history aright, Judges upon the bench bad been impeached for leas cause than might be furnished here The prisoner thought tLat tbe falae pretense wn with the prosecution He would look at the understanding of old Chamtwr* In regard to the collection of the money. Did be owe Chambers any money? Not at all; the proof had been that the obligation was on the other ade. Had Cbam > rs any oatenaible right to receive the money of Hirgte? Hia own admiaaioiis anawered "no!" NV here, then. waa tta?* w bar of absurdity, which so Impartial juat ice would have act up iu the path of tb!a moti veless suppositton * There was no motive, beyond the will of the L?iaUict Attorney, there waa no bar whatever in the pliancy of the court. Suppose that Mrl<ean bad been in New Orleans; supp<?e that he had paid the draft; auppose thai the clerical broker hud received his tritiey: suppose that old Chambeis bad never heard further of the transaction; would there have been any ease of false pretenses? Who believes ItT Who can listen to such a toing ' The draft would have been in the hands of the prisoner's friend, Mc!<eaii; It could not have been produced in evidence The broker would have been satisfied? this cleri cal broker, wbo. not content with his salary In oAce, Increases his means by shaving needy men. Old Chamber* would have been satisfied; for. iaithnugh be had not collected one cent, be would not have lost one cent But th? District would not have i?een satisfied. No; with tbe Instinct of a bloodhound, be pursued not merely the trail of the preseut prosecution, but trails that were more ancient, more remote, and entirely discoiiKtrd from tnis affair. But the District Attorney bad said, that, wten the Washington broker cashed tbe draft, tbe guilt of Bargie was consummated; and that nothing which occurred afterwards could add to, or detract from, the guilt of Barbie. The court sustamed this position Now tbe prisoner was willing to takr this position as made for him ; and upon it h? stood acquitted It was in evidence, ? that, when tbe broker cashed the draft, Chamber* bad not loaftaeenti it was in evidence, that Chambers had no reasonable prospect of losing a cent; it was in evidence, that Barbie had everv ri^hi expect toat McLean would pay the draft: Ft was in evidence. I bat Chamber* would have brought no proaeeotion tf tbe draft bad been paid Tbua, turn, it seems that tbe whole efftir waa accidental; tbe crime waa an accident; tbe prosecution wan a a accident; everything waa au accident, except the virulenta of the Dtatrict Attorney. Such waa the miserable false pretenae, put forth by the Attorney. and sustained by tbe court, upon wbieb toe prisoner bad been coaTlct-d The jury were net Id blame What could they do. when a faue { rrte.iae waa prraented to them by the legal pros e:utor. and conlrtued by the bench?

He waa then arrested oa a special warruit, Issued by another justice, and was held to bail for eourt. The tfraud Jury met la December last, and bad poaittTelv determined te ignore the bill against Bargle Then it waa that the District Attorney demanded a from the foreman of the Grand Jury that a bid should be fo?irrd falsely alleging ss a reason that threats had >*-en made a?a*nst btmaeif at my liv t! i^mtlotk.

And I did expect from fc^m something in the shape of ?rknowledj{ment." 1 he law of false pretences had been frequently j - * -V1.04 ci?cf?orrrj ana iaii vwaici would M up an evil precedent id the District of Columbia When the greedy creditor cannot recoTer fttst enough by civil process, he may now pat on tbe thumb-screw of a criminal action.

Baffled in argument, and powerleaa In equitable law. the prcaecution bad grown comic, and had endeavored to turn the laugh against the prisoner. Every one would remember " the disgusting apertacle of imbecile mirth," which the elder Chambers presented In the witness-box. The prisoner compared tbe District Attorney with his prosecuting witnesa, to an organ-grinder exhibiting a monkey. The ahow would have been all very well in lta proper place ; but its proper plane was not n conrt of justice. The very fouadatlons of tbe law bad been shaken by the action of tbia court Unless tbe nature of the oath be fullv understood, and tbe responsibility of the oath distinctly felt, a witness cannot lie competent Therefore, the oath la * a a a - * ?t irniTu around wuu mirmn restrictions Tticw . restriction* had been removed by the ruling*, to admit the incompetent testimony of Chambers and hit son, who could have betn proven upon their life-long declarations, to be atheists and materialists The pale had been broken down; and the Infldel element in society might rush in to wreak its bidden hatred on the Christian. The gentlemen of the petit jury bad probably not coni dered the accessary results of their verdict. Some of them were fathers, endeavoring to train up Christian daughters and Christian sons; the day might come when the error of the fathers might recoil upon their children. For a great wrong, evenfvvhen uneons lously done, works out always its own punishment This it the law of nature, and of Uod, and It not subject to the rulingt of a court. The prisoner indignantly repelled the Idea that be had attempted to escape. He could not have escaped, if he would; he certainly would not have done so, if he could It wat crime that made the criminal, not con fKuu auu emence. i ne prisoner was not criminal; no jury could make him so; no judge could make him so. The pig-sty of a jail became tolerable, when it waa the abode of conscious innocence The prisoner's box of the court-room was dignified, when a guiltless and a fearU-ss man stood in it. God knew best by what means to work out the salvation of the innocent; and the prisoner thanked Heaven that a strength not his own had been lent to htm in this time of terrible difficulty. He was ready to receive sentence. Judge Crawford said, it was not his part to reply to the prisoner. He did not think the attack on the District Attorney was in verv good taste He would sentence Bargie to two years at hard labor in the Penitentiary; but. since the counsel of the prisoner bad determined to take up a writ of error to the Circuit Court, the execution of sentence should be postponed until ten da>s after the rising of that Court Th* Zouaves?Thei* Visit to the Pbesidkst's on !*atcrday? i heir drill t her e?the Address of the President and the Reply of I'iPT K.LI.nwniTH ?It ni?? ???# ? ? ? - ? - - - wi ra?

Being detained down the river, however, longer than was anticipated, they were not enabled to leave the hofc l, whither they had repaired for dinner, before three o'clock They arrived at the President's about quarter past three, followed by an Immense throng, having the appearance, from the windows of the White House, as it were, of a sea of heads The companies were invited into the East Room, when the Zouaves ranged themselves along the east Wall, thf nth#*r rnmn?nio? nn n"' j wi? ? i uri niur. DniiK thus arranged In line. Miss Lane entered, with distinguished male escort, and occupied a scat near a window in the south end of the room. Shortly after, the President, accompanied by Dr. Blake, the efficient Commissioner of Public Buildings, md General Lane, made his appearance, whfn the military presented arms, which compliment the President acknowledged with a graceful bow. He was Immediately introduced 11 Captain Kllswortb and other officers of the Zouaves, by Maj. Davis, of the Infantry After a brief conversation, In wbich the President expressed bis delight at being honored by a visit from a corps, whlcn had become so renowned throughout the country, as a company unenualled in the masterly art of drill peculiar to the French Zouaves, the officers were introduced to Miss Lane. The President, accompanied by Captain Kiliworth. then passed along the line of the Zouaves, shaking the hand of each as he was introduced. He was followed by G?*n. Lane, who was introduced by Dr Blake. The Presiflent having expressed a desire to see them drill, if It would not cause them too great fatigue, as he understood tbey were to drill In frout of the City Hall, thev airain in iu? p Med through the mutE door to the lawn immediately south of the White House, the President and Misa Lane, taking poaitlon on the balcony A apare s.tfi' ieiit u> allow them to go through with their wonderful evolutions was kept open by the Waahington and Baltimore companies tri skill. The word beirg given, in an instant they divested themselves cf their knar sar ks and prepared for their exerciae From the limited time allotted to tbcra. they could only go through with a portion of their drill, which waa done in a moat masterly manner the President rem&rking that, so perfect were all their maneuvers, that they aeemed to move as If by machinery. The drill elicited the applause of every person present. It exhibited on the part of every man a complete mastery of the Hardee system of evolu won*. rue nrsi movemenx* were merely foot evolution*, wheeling, filing, etc. The inen moved In every variety of combination, In single and double file, In platoon*, in company, etc They mart-bed with the greateat regularity. The next movement wa* beyond excellence. The company wit* drawn up In double filer facing front. At the word ?f command they abonlder? d and dropped arm* The simultaneous fiaah of forty white gloved handa, and the simultaneous erection of forty muskets. were like the movementa of the pirta of a huge machine, and the individual Zouave* ware forgotten in the evolution* of the company. The whole body of men was like one n.au , There wa* the ?harp quick order of the captain, and the quick unerring fiaah of the handa and tbe rifiea, a* if the order of nature were reverted; first f ho ifoon thnnH*p 41?

The finest old soldiers 011 the ground, accustomed to the lower detail* of the Scott manner of drill, were obliged to confess that the Zouaves were the ne plus ultra of military iieautv. Tbe men tben marched obliquely?that U to say, In two flies whose directions are diagonals of the plane of advancing. so tbat the men on the left are far In tbe rear of the m?*n on the right.

By the time that one end of the column it reached, the other Is again loaded and ready to tire The second part of the drill was proceeded with. This consisted principally ot skirmishing and deploying. The skirmishers scattered In two flies across the whole area of the enclosure, and while the second* file, standing with faces towards tbe supposed enemy, was making ready, the first or advance column aimed, ready to fire In this way each column advanced in order, until the whole field was passed over. Everything was done with wonderful celerity. The men then rallied upon the centre and stood In clusters of vvuu iuc uayuuri |>uiiiuu|; ?i every irua?. The bayonets were then shifted to correspond wttb the thrust, plunge, cbarge and defense. The retreat was exhibited at length, and the inai e ivers of quick marches conducted In all com' 1 tatlons of form and number. The scout or guerilla drill was also carried out, the men throwing themselves flat upon the Held turning over on their backs to load. They also threw themselves Into defensive company position with the bayonets pointing upward In a circle, as if defying the charge of cavalrv. These maneuvers were witnessed with great delight by the crowd. Pausing in their drill, and stacking arms In their peculiar manner, tbey were drawn up in 1!b?, with Capt. Ellsworth la front, when the President, accompanied by Clen Lane, descended to tUe lawn, and addressed them as follows : CiTizt.i boldibbs : 1 feel myself greatly honored by this visit, and I extend to you a cordial welcome la a very eminent degree vou are benefactors of tfef country. Your excursion bm bfen I prolonged. Yoa have visited our various cities, end I have no doubt your example has infused the military spirit Into the people I think Toot drill is admirable for it* precision. I have never see# anything like tt In any part of the world Von must have expended a treat deal of labor to arrive at the perfection yon have attained The regular army of the United States Is comparatively small. It never can be very large, except in time of war. What we have Is Admirable. Notl ing can he better. But the people in tbis country must be prepared themselves to defend their own right* and libertiea. and their own flresidn and th*;f altars. And whatever tends to indtirc a military spirit smong the people, and to reader them capable of standing erect against the world to arms, that is surely patriotic, that is surely benelclal to the nation, to the whole country; and. therefore, in the commencement of these remarks I called ?nn miKlio Vu>n?ftirtAM M TKo fa?11 i?f Iaoa.

The captain of the corps, Col. Ellsworth, the* a pproackcd the President, and said: )om Excsllbnct : Permit me to say to you that we are deeply sensible of the honor you hare done us in permitting us to make th'.B visit, and we shall esteem it as first among the very many pleasant recollections we are enabled to carry back to our western homes Your kindly welcome will be remembered by us as long as our memory lasts Having just returned from a visit : to the tomb of our beloved Washington, with all I our patriotism and love of country awakened by the reflection!

Accept, sir, on behalf of my command, the assurance of our respectful regard for you, sir, as the I chief executive officer of the nation, in which we I are just entering upon our duties as citizens, and under which we consider it a very high honor to > be addressed as citizen soldiers. I trust your Excellency will pardon our untidy appearance Al- 1 lowance must be made for this on account of the ' neat oi me day, and the continued marching we 1 have undergone What we have gone through i with on thia occasion is but a portion of our reg- : ular drill; but it was the best we could do under j the circumstances. The President?Well, I think that after snch a ' display as vou have made it is rather an act of j supererogation to ask m? to make this allowance. ! This ceremony over, Col. Ellsworth proposed j to give three times seven cheers and a Zouave for his Excellency. The President then retired to the balcony of the j White House, after a polite bow, when the com- 1 panics resumed their position in line. The military then marched to the music of the bands, at quick step, out of the grounds and dewn Pennsylvania avenue towards the City Hall, in front and about which, for hours, dense crowds, composed in a large proportion of the gentler sex, had been patiently waiting to witness the ; Zouavi 'j drill, as intended and published Not ? *? ? -I* *1 ? - U uia.i|<p'im iijrui aiHijjnutr, uapx MHWOriB drew up his men and gave some specimens of drill for about ten minutes, which was all the ! brief time t>efore the departure of the railroad train by which his company were to travel, would j admit of Before leaving he expresse d his regret , that the length of time spent in the President's grounds had not permitted him to gratify the , people about the City Hail as he could have j wished. The Zouaves and Greys left in the half past five 1 o'clock train for Haiti more; the forn.er en route ! for l'ittaburg, and thence to Cincinnati and other ' Western cities. .

In their view religion fell with their country, and the prayer for his country recorded in the chapter containing the text is not surpassed 1q sublimity in the prophetic, records. It la filled also with arguments replete with a faith which engendered joy amid misfortune. The produce of the garden, feeld, fold, and stall, | formed the chief means of subsistence in those days, as now; and tbe destruction of that product was the death of the nation. In the case before us. war was about to cut off the herds from the land, and thua rlsit the nation with a mighty calamity But calamities only try oar faith a d form the very purifying fire through which we are to paas \V hen the fortunes of The world are ' bright. flnH \rhwn nfAtnflffto nn a J ? ? ? ?? UVM f *U ? ** " 1 uri smiles, to be subject to tbe will of God coats ua nothing; but when tbe road becomes thorny and our feet are caused to pain and bleed at every step, when adversity- obstructs our way, and great difficulties are to be overcome, when storms gather thickly around us,- and darken our spirit* ual sky to such a degree as to brine our faith into lively exercise, then the contrast between a true Christian and any other man la eaaily discerned Thus we see that joy in adversity is the theme suggested by tbe text?one of tjje greatest ai.d most useful leeaons which man has to Team First, as the cause of this ioy a good man recognizes tue government of Goa over the affairs of life. He acknowledges the uniform agency of Him who rules heaven and earth God to him glows in the stars, blooms In the roee, and more truth than poetry appeara to blm in those divine effusions of Scripture?'-God rides upon the storm"?"He weigbeth the hills as In a balance,"' Ac. Secondly, The Christian recognizes God's purposes in every l orm of adversity to be in harmony with bis character, and therefore they must be for good. To say that (iod does anything without a desivn is to call in question bis intelligence ; and to *ay that his designs are wrong is denying bis benevolence. The balances of adversity and prosperity are Ingeniously poised, for were our lives a continual series of prosperity, It would cause us to love the world too fondly, and were it one scene of adversity, It would soon disgust us Our present stale is the best for us as sinners It would not do for Eden nor Heaven. Thirdly, Along with our Increase of trial come* Increase of strength A nun doei not glory in adversity nmrely, as such, but he glories in the strength with which be maintains himself against it Finally, Adversity is certain as to its limitation It will not last forever To a good man the last enemy is deith, and when that is conquered, they are all gone forever.
