Before receiving sentence, the prisoner, by permission, addressed the Court as follows : " May it please yonr bonor. I wish to say a few plain words to the court before sentence is pronounced ulhmi me I am an uneducated man, and what I Lave to say must be said simply Wben I was brought into this Conrt. on the charge of having robbed a man. I came unprepared with witnesses, weak in health, broken down. 1 am sorry to sav. by intemperance, and ninost entirel v unconscious of o.e terrible ihmii - tlon In which I was placed I'nder the circutn tances. I was Incapable of pointing out to my counsel any line of defence. I cannot, therefore, tolame the jury for their verdict. They were obliged to find roe guilty on the evidence when 1 (had no defence to ffftr; but facts have come to light since, and my counsel are provided with nbanisat affidavits to prove my innocence. They think, and I think, that if the statements of those affidavits could b.tve been presented to the jury in the form of evidence, there would have been no doubt whatever of an acquittal 1 submit to your honor that It is but just to you and to me that I should have a new trial, for 1 am innocent of th'irhar^e. It would be hard to make any acquaintance of mine believe that Harry Turner is a tniff .My means have always been at the disposal of charity; my heart, hand, and pocket Lave always beeu at the call of sottWing i and. although not a religious man in profession, I have tried always to obey that beat command of in V ( ?ik/i anH nf fi?nf i' a?U? ? j ,?.,? ? i Tt'i> mi-u? u?-? u'ih? umrrs as yc would that others should do unto you.' 1 have *.nned against invwlf more than against others, and it is btcause 1 am innocent that 1 have t-ength to bear up under this difficulty I am past the prime of life; I haven wife and children.

I trust in tiod that it will have the effect of making ine in the future a wiser and kw-tter man I thank your honor for having indulged me thus far " William H Marquise, convicted of keeping a f?ro bank was sentenced to three years in the penitentiary, the sentence to take effect a? iu the cate of Turner The petit jurors were then discharged linaily. and the court adjourned to the 4 next court in course.

I cannot agree with him, however, that the position which he must have held at Vera Cruz entitles him to descant upon military affairs, good, bad or Indifferent, and would suggest that had be as much good sense and good breeding as assurance and effrontery, he would not attempt a parallel between us in our capacities while traversing the burning sands of a hostile country, especially as the one drew rations for man, servant and horse, and the other evidently drew wages as a wagoner Enough of '-One of Them," who evidently never approached to the outskirts of good society, even except perhaps while paying three dollars per day for a horse on which to display the fine uniform of the horse-marine of the city, yclept the "President's Mounted Guard,'' which perhaps he has tx>en enabled to do through uv luviati *c uicuiuui \ji miAilifc; uai*. liijuuri in palatable doses, at a levy a glass !

Can a man who can write be so ignorant of the achievements of our brilliant Army, and the history of those wars which his liberties cost, as to stigmatize our Army or our Njvv as wanting in efficiency, promptness, and even of having attained to that ' supremacy" which he fain would deprive them ? His ignorance must be his apology for intruding bis bad epistolary and bad manners upon the public. I would state for his satisfaction. however, that 1 : am not connected with the military of the District, i | and furthermore, that if the soldiers of this city desire a champion of the quill to resurrect them from the death-like lethargy Into which thev have fallen, they mutt call upon aome other candidate, as ' Another Military Man" surely lacks the elements requisite to anccess Ibid " MilitaryMan" the aecond, and " One of Them" forever adieu, and promise the public that as I can s|>end my time to better advantage than driveling with tbow two characters.
