An adjourned meeting of the board of public school trustees wa? 1??*id last evening at the Franklin building for the purpose of receiving the report of the committee (Messrs. O. K. Har ris, W in. J. Khees, A. M. Scott and K. f'hamp lin) app< '-.ted to inquire into the charges made iiutmUrpf the t>oard that Wm. Guinand, the contractor for furnishing coal and wood to the public schools, Lss defrauded said schools by not giving the pr.'i-er weight of coal; and that, in a number of < ncn, the certificates of the public weigher have been forged. There were present Messrs. Alien, AtLee. Chauiplin, l*e trick, I'ulin, French, Harris, Hart, Moore. Murtagh. Randolph. KTs ees, Richards, Scott, Stuart, Wilson au<l Woodward. Mr. Gain and, with his (MDttl, Mr. L. G. Hine: Mr. K. C. fiati-he 1. Superintendent J. O. Wilson and Treasurer Crown were also present. Mr. French presided, with I>r. A. P. Fardon secretary. t REI >ItT OF THE COMMITTEE. Mr. Harris, from the investigst.r.g committee, submitted their rei>ort. With regard to the first proposition, (whether the public schools ha<i been defrauded by not rtc? iving the proj?er weight of coal from the contract**,) tlie committee say ? '? The fact was e?tabli-h>d by positive aud direct evidence that at leant seven tons of coal, which Lad been or dered tor the first school district, fell short an average of over three hundred pounds to the ton." After referring to some of the evidence, the rej-ort says : "The committee di.l not deem it necessary, alter establishing the aiove facts, to li.ijnire further in relation to particular load ?f coal; but other general evidence left no room tor doubt that the school had been defrauded in like manner at other times." ^ ith regard to the second proposition, (whether the eertiacatesof the public weigher had heen forged,) the committee say: "The testimony of Mr. Gatchel himself and of Mr. Alt, mus. the principal clerk in Mr. Guinand'* emplov, t?taMi.?hf*tiif tact that a large majori ty oi the certiorates purporting to have been Mfi ?i by Gatch 1 were >;^n? d Wv said Alteiuus with Guinand- know edge, and that, too, with out Gatcht Ts authority. It further appeared that Mr. f>atch< I was not a public weigher tinder the giwrnnunt of the liistriet of Columbia. The coal contract was awarded to Mr. Guinand oil July 11. K:. and at that time the hoard of school trustees adopted a resolution : "That for ?II coal delivered by the contractors for the u.-> ol the public schools of this cut certificates of the public weigher* be required." Mr. Guinand wa* not ignorant of that resolution, for he had diseusted it with members of this hoard, and thought it impracticable to carry it out. In the opinion of the committee. Mr. (iuinand must have known that Mr. Gatchel was uot a regular ly-appointed weigher or inspector. It was also h? evidence that Mr. Gatcb.l had presented two bills tor weighing coal at the rate of twenty cents per ton. although according to his own test, mony he had never performed the work. The law fixes the compensation of the weigher at ten cents j*r ton, -payable by the seller of arh coal.' " Vo ir conuuittee believe that both the pro,rf> aitioi.s above stated have been proven, aal they therefore recom:^eu<l the adoption of the following resolutions, tia: K- 'QK'-t, That in the ?ettlsmwt of th- aci-vants witt' * ;lliani Goinaml for coal furnished the public ?chools th>- r.>H!?iltw ..)! wc ><iut? be ?!.rested to niske a .'NiKti< n "f P- r rent.

Mr. Harrit presented the certificates of weights of coal fur. islied, and said he ?npj>osed that the ni* Hibers had made themseJves acquainted with the tsstinxmy. They con Id understand how coal co<ui be diort now and then, but from the information received by the committee it would ap(K-M that the giving of short weight had l>eeii goin,? on for some time. He thought that a proper roduction should be made. 1 n re ply to Mr. AU.ee. Mr. Harris stated that the committee recotumended no amount, but he favored M or ;?er cent, deduction. Mr. Wilson called attention to the fact that nothing is sakl at to ico'iiring Gatchcll to re fpnd the monev paid him. Mr. Hart said that Gatcheil had uot heen paid, and his bill* had never becu aetod on by the treasurer. He should have said nothing ou the subject had he aot seen a publication in the Jk-.i-uWum and Star, where he was charged with petty persecution Of Mr. Guuuul. He d?-'iicd that he wa> act>'.ate<l bv such a spirit. uk. enNAN'j wahts'a trial.

TVere it- tut one degree of homicide which, under the principlt? of the common law which prevail in this I>i?tnct.i? punishable by death, and that is murder, w h'dt is defined in the law to be the killing of a human being with malic aforethought, or, as it is somewhat ex|rfT*d, premeditated malice. All oiIm-t homicides are either manslaughter, excusable *r justifiable homicides. How dense is the ignorance upon this question, e?iH i ihII) siuc Bg Bews paper writers, who are how I ing for men's Mood without any knowledge of tlieir rights. will t>e seen when 1 call to your mind a pub lic iU ion in a re. ent moraine paper,comment ins upon the c?re of O'Brien, which gravely declare* that ? Hiere are very few murders in which tliere i? any malice:' while, iu fact and in law, there never was a nmrd?r without malice aforethought lieing ex pressly f nud by the jury under the instruction* of the court. . _ , . Ti e act for which 0 Bnen is now suffering, and must for his life. seems upon the evidence to have l eenthie: he was a-Miller, wit h a good record and I fair character, insomuch that he was appointed a ! police officer of the District. lie had a friend and acquaintance nauud t'nnuingbam. with whose fam I il\ he had lived in intimate relations. Cunuineham ha>: applied to fi'Brien for an appointment as watch D iiii On a dav in September la^t.at a picnic, an hoar and a half after souie conversation had <w ! i Hired between O'Brien and the wife of t'unuing ' ham. Cunningham accused O'Brien of having iu | suited his wife. This O'Brien denied. Highwords ! occurred between them, in which they mutually a< t iwdeMli other's wives of nnchastity in very c.(?r?? language. A scuffle and blows then ensuel. when | the iu ntenant of p .lice interf. red, took O'Brien's tai< !< and hadge. and ordered liiiu away fr >in tlie place, which onier O Brien obeyed. 8.?me ten miiiutee afterwarls 0 Brien was returning to the pa> ilion w ith the view, as he -tates, of seeing ' the ln uti naiit of police. Before he started he had been iufonuea, as was in testimony, that i Cunningham threatened to kill him liefore he bft the gf nmls, using a very epprobriou- tenn. i On his way to find the lieutenant he met Cnnain,? ; ham, at <1 there w as bo evidence but ihe m-eting was i ?n iin> vp? < ted one. There was conflicting evnlence I a? to w hat tir*t tci.k place upon the meeting, sonio witnesses testifying that the opprobrious language was reiiew.-d by Cnnningham, and that a scuffle en ?ued Tlieri w . r>- other w itnesees who testified tint | th. y h< ard no s-uch language- but the w. ight of tes i tin ony vi SM seem to be that the altercation i>i suri'.n, if not in blows, wa* renew til. Tiiere was no I evidence of any previous threats on the part of i O Biien against < nnninghani, although there wa-* evi<!> nee that he was laboring under a great state of excitement np to the time h? met Cunningham. There war ev i,t,-?ce tending to sh w- that Cunning : h:m niaiie a notion as if to draw a pistol up..n ; O'Brien; bnt this is in di-pr.te. In that condition of at.airs O Brien drew fr in his p<s-ket the pi?to| that lie *im accustomed to carry, and iiad with him as a ! |? liceman, and shot Cuuningham a single shot, ; which canse.1 the death. M':*s th ? death.then, beynml reasonable donbt tha l re?rlt of pr. nm!itat? d malice or malice af'?re l tln tight ? This was the very fact in dispute bef tro the jury. The homicide was not denied. The pro vocat'.n. the information that t?'Brlen ha>l recei\ed t li'it < nnniiiKhnui hail llireati-nM Ills life, w ;ot b f >re the nry. Thi? unestion of fact, of the malice afore thought, w as ,-olely a ijuestioii for the jury, and if it hud IweB left to them, under what I believe as a lawyer c? rre?-t construction- of law by the court, I, fur one, should never have interfer<d. >1* attention was called to the case after the trial, and ?ft* r certniu exceptious had been taken and argu?-d, b* the motiier and wif? of O'Brien, w hocame tn n1". 1 supp, je. Iwcause O Brien had been a Siddier Ubder my Comniasid and was in trmil.le. That < all in a pr> p-*r < aee | have never neglected. Upunexamin ii g the i harge of the court I found that the jury had | l-eeu iu^tructe<l that malice aforethought was a pr* snmpti. n J the law from the fact of killing, and the intent to kill w?? presumed as a matter ot law fr"iu the killing itself. This instruction, in effect, was that if the jnrv found that O'Biien killed decease d w th a pistol, w hich fact was not in dispute, th" w iiifi rred fr iu the killing and the weapon preiu. ili tat< d malice 1 also font d that tle re was no instruction in the chatg - of the judge, winch w as taken at length by a rt I.at ?! wi iter, that the burden of proof was w !th the pi. s- cntioii to convince thsjuty beyond res abb d< i.bt of premeilitated malice. It seemed t > tu? lhattlii- took awav from the inry the only que-'ion in the esse. 1h'-killi<ig withthe pistol was admit ted. The ii.structi >li in fact was, that that being a<l mitie*t, the law inferred that it was don- with m.tlce si reth- ' ght, and tbejurv ha<l nothing to do ?;th tic ? t ue-t'i ii unb-s^ liie defendant could prove to their -atinfactivn that he did not have malice at -re thoiv-ht. _ _ I brought this o nest ion before the court up->n a m t ion for a writ of error, which was argued bef >re four judges only of the eourt;the fifth?haviug sent hi* resignation to the Presideut?uoi -itting iu iht case. Ti e c urt, by a majority only, overruled the ntotion; the chief justice giving a dissenting opini on, in which he adopted the view of the law which I have set forth, that malice aforethought I vmis to t>e prov en s? a fact, and not inferred by law i iii ca*e of ii< micide where the iu?>th<sl and circnm i stai ce attending the homicide were known nud in ; ev rdeiwe te?fore the jury; and, secondly, that the jury ouirlit to have been instructed that the bnrlen ' of prrof w?? upon the prevention to prove beyond ' reason*) W* d'-ubt to them the fart that the killing w ?- done with malice aforethought. it ma* occiur to you, an a lawyer, that the law *d<?-, iu w me rases, infer malice aforethought. That is true; but it is only in case, of secret h >mi ci-le, wh< re the fa."ts and ci.'cumstances accompany ing tli-killing are not known. It may not b ? niap pr>>priate that I recall to your mind the history of t|,t? presuniptfou of law in case of secret murler. After W illiam the Conqueror had snbduetl the K-ig lish pe? pie, a nundter of his Nonoan soldier?. w ere fouml uiBidered iusitret. To prevent this he caused th- law to he df < tared t.'iat where a man was fournl to ?.<? killed in sec ret the law should presunieth. ee thiiga- first, that tl?ede?e?sed was a Freuclniaii; ?ec. v.lly, thsi the ?layer was an E iglishiuan; t hint I \ . that the deceased was slain with malico *f..ieth? ugh!. and that the haislied or precinct in which the lesiy w an found ahs.:iM he amerced iu a fine, which was called ttmrilrHtti, from which we ha e tke term n:unler. The humanity of law has g< t rid of the presumption that everr man slain is a Prer.i hman, nud thatevery man killing is an Eng li?hnian. ' ut still retain*, iu can* of secret humicide, t??. presumption that it wandwl e with malice atore tt< light, an it cannot be kuown how it was done. Tins presvmptioB in case of secret homicide? making it murder if circumstances ?r evidence point . '%it lie slaver to the ..nry?the court it seems to me, erroneously imported into the case of O'Brien, wltf-re all the eircunmtancea were known; ami of this o}iir.i<>n was the Chief Justice of IU Supreme C* urt of the District. ?i c r-member that O'Brien was tried alaiost ini mediat.'lv after the homicitle, when the comanunity v\ s? gr?-ttly excited, and when there was a general demand, especially iii the newspaper press for a legal victim; and under the cirenmatances hetardly could have had a fair trial, however desirous both c urt ?nd jury might hare been not to yield to popular pressure and what is usually a senseless clamor. i Beiie\ing fr<jn the evid'-nce that O'Brien was guilty of mans laughter only^ or, as the higher classes of that crime are sometimes denamiiiat.-d, '?murder in Ike second degree,'' aud Hinting that there was much doubt whether he was trieduiider correct instructions of law: that the Chief Ju-lice diseented from a majority of the court, and averre.1 that he hsd not Iwn; and having been deprived by the fact that one judge did iu>t ait of the opini >n of the whole court npsi his case. I should have deemed it but little short of murder to have executed him mnb-r suck cin-umstaoces; and I feit that I wan, without hope of other reward, iu the conscientious dist barge of ni) dutv In interpiwiug in his behalf: . and 1 should have deemed it my further d?ty to rep resent the^asa to the President in the strongest terms possible t?save ? man's life, which would have Iwn taken, as Iflrnily believe, in contravention of law if the execution kad gone on. The killing waa upon sadden impulse,under a high state of provocation, ami after information that his own life was in danger. I admit that the provocation waa not suttcient to reduce the crime to inatt4abl? or excnaable homicide, but insist that the whole circumstances show an entire went of premeditated m-l'ce * hi* h aloae constitutes murder, aad is pu.i ished with the highest penalties of the law. The law is a terror to evil doers ofiiy when they are made to feel that it is j flatly, exactly, fairly, impertai'y, sternly administered, as by the action of the Presi dent in this case it has been done; and O'Brien is new ? n?erin* his punishment for the crime he actu a!l? < oinmitted. but hi* life is not taken by the law f.>r acrime which he did not commit; or, if he did, n?jnrv has yet passed nbob that crime under instruc tion. or what, in my judgment,the law really is.

Doubtless, this was done in a lit of passion, but if ath had resulted from this blow it would have l>eeii a rase of murder, and not manslaughter, merely for the reason t hat although pas-ion was pres. t-nt there was not sufficient provocation to degra-lo this set from murder to manslaughter. It is a well - susta ned principle, old as our system of juri-prn denct, that both passion and sufficient provocation must concur to reduce the killing from murder te lnanslaiigliter; and equally well ?ettle<l is the doc trine that no mere words, or complaint* made, h;>w everisriovoiia, v?ill constitutesiiflicient provocation. It H eaid by the counsel for the prisoner that lw hail r-iceived a ?'.?><*?<?* imtmW' front Cunningbani. But ihe law forbids the taking of human life up <u pas-ion provoked merely by insulting words. K? ix ciall* does it forbid killing upon passion provok -l by itioilting language given by the deceased in r? tnrn for an insult equally or e\en more stinging heap* d upon the deceased l>y the slaj > r. If it w-re wroii{ in Cunniuvihaiii to have retorted up> i O Br-en the in-ult which O'Brien hal tirst pas-el u)K'n him, it w as certainly more wrong that O Brien should pass the original insult. Iu truth, th"re was not only no sufficient proviH atioii eiveu to O'Brieti to strike the bl> w he aid with liis bludgeon,but there vi'io oi-caeion mi en by Cuniniwha'n's <? <mpl ?ir t to Ei-st \ for the aron-im? of O'Brien's passion. As aii officer of the law it was his duty to have met the a-:ra*ati< n made airainst him in the manner pre scrib'tl by the rules of the Metr >p ditan Police 11 ard, before wbioh li--would have h.wl a fair and impa *tial trial. Shall it be understood, by a pree dent to be set in this rase, that a police officer may r\d /ilittiM, attempt theeednction of and th--n insult tiie h'.ne't wife of an humble but respectable citiz i, and t '?< n if complained against nv?y come b -fore his supetior,and iu his preseuce answer 'he complaint l>) le ling the complatnsiit to the earth with hi" I ti< ial baton/ If so, I respectfully beg leave to inter pose my pretest here and now, hecaus ' it would le as if we sh' uld say to the injur- ! husband,"k:il your wife's Insnlter on sight, for it will t> ? s/fer f ;i >? n t ? stand a trial by jury for killing him th*ti to risk the vengeance of his baton and pistol, if you make lawful complaint ag iins? him." Th'isfar I hnve treateti the case as though death h el ensued from the tir-t attfcck made by th ? prisoner npoll the deceased; and I repeat, that it would iu in;, jndgitent have lieen a case of mnr?l* r. It was ev n a more aggravated murder, however, when wo com** tofo||#.w it- trseieal conclu-ion. Pursuing the evidence we find that after O'B ien had inflicted this terrible b! >w tip.ui Cunningh im with his official baton,(an<l. by the 1-y the e?Wei,c as printed does not disclose the tact thai the hat -n v? as used, although it ?> so state-1 at the trial I th latter retired to the pa v ill ion :ifier his recovery , and OT?ri-n having been arretted and stripp?l-if liis fficial insignia and ordered to ft" h .me by his suiv rior i fficer, went to th. Green SjiriuK- Hotel, ab oit titty yards oi-tant from the paviiii>>ii, where h sought out hie wife and then left th" hotel. Cua uinghan. having joined his wife in the meantime was |eavjng the pavillion on his way hotne, when O'Brien havir g liad some fifteen or twenty tsinutes of coelitie time,which, in my judgment, was ample, even if his paseiou had before been excusably aroused, ru-hed upon Cunningham, revolver in band, and witbent any sufficii-nt provocation, sh >t him through the head, killing liim in his v-ry tra< k?. and then fired another -hot at him after he bad fallen to the ground. In-lee-i Essex swears that O'Brien was apparently cool wh-n he left to go tolhe hotel. I ought al-o hereto stale what was omitted in the printed evidence, that one of the wit neesea for the prosecution testin^d at th- trial that after the sho-ting he asked O'Brien what he h ?-l done, and received for answer ?? I have shot'-or ?' 1 have kill*-I the of a One might wdl -uppo-e that even, il without first hating t> -ii in sufted by O'Brii u.

But it is -aid by the counsel for the prisoner in his communication to the President, **We deny that O Bri-ti n?i<'e any sd-tince or ciiari;*si to oragaiu-t the fronton Cunningham. We say that this w*s Irvti ped vp by the C. 's,'] meaning I suppose, Mrs. Cunninebam aud her relative*. Let us for a moment look at this d -nial. an 1 -.v ? discover how absurd it iswhenviawed iu the lu'iit of all the surrouudings of the case. The evidence discloses the fact that O'Brien and Cuauingliam w ere friemls before this meeting at Green Sprii.g-; that they and Mrs. Cunningham there had friendly conversation, in w hich O'Brien said he was g-itig to #ct a situation for Cunningham upon the r ervoir, on Ihe hill. B> th- testimony of the ile f-nse it is shown that the couversa'ion between th tu was not only friendly, but very friendly as loni.' as they t at talking toget her in the pa\ilion, an-l until Cunninzham left. What it was after that tim- as between O'Brien and Mrs. Cunningham only ap pears from hi t statement, which is fan! to have b -n tivmp 'lvy. Sow If it l>e true that O'Brien had-I ? clrred that he was going to get a situation for(/' in ninL-ham. and I do not d nibt it for a mMii-.-nt. or if only we snMioee that the partie-. according t ? ;h? teMimony tur the d- fense, were vrfy/ri-ii 11* 11:?iI ?I ship so suddenly wa.- shown except as relal-d I ' Mm. Cunningham, and it Is difficult to conceive of any oth?r than t'i it. The insult -lie relates would naturally pr siue" j-'-t i-i. ci-cly the result w hi< h occurred, tlie relati-'ii .f it to her husband, attd bis going to O'Brien with iii wife to ask for explanation, and failing in thise nn plait.t v. u- ma<le to Offi- er E?ex. The de?--?ased as not shown to l>e a i|tiarrel?oiue <>r belligerent man or the wife to be a mi-clilef-making woman. Cun uiuuliani was a -lender, feeble man, of ordinary amiability, at least, and dosbtle?? only such an in ?ult as that gnen to his wife by O'Brien could b tve prompted him to eo to -n< h a man as O Brieu. a tliird larger than him-iIf, to a-k an explanation. Th le fem e did not dare to attac k the character of Mrs. Ciiimhicham as a truthful wituess, and the as-ti up tiou that all this is tratr.ptd up Is altogether gratuit ous . and js entirely destitute of evidence to siHt.iln it. {?tress la/ought to be laid, to<>, upou the testim my of one witness for the defence that he heard the de ceased say he was tot it* tu"kill tkt ?? of a -, (?leaning O'Brien) btfort kt Irfl ike troun'l that ifMisi, ' ami that witrnss informed O'Brien of thi threat. As this w itoess teems to have been th<> ouly one w ho heard of this threat of all the large cr >wd there assembled, and does not tell what 0 Brien said in reply I might, with more reason, say this was all trumped up, but I do not. lam willing to admit that the witness svore to the best of his knowl lg and belief. But ailmittingit to have been trie be yond all question, it was plaiuly, ami for this \ ?r> reaaon, more imperatively the duty of O'Brien, p-ac officer as he wa>, lu Uu> c given hasty oltedienc to the command of his snperTor and gone home. In stead of this he goes pistol in hand, seeking, n- it is said, Lt. Essex, and encountering Cunningham,-lays him on the spot. Cunningham did uot seek him, and made no demonstration of carrying out thi threat; and it will uot do to say that a mere threat to take I he life of another will excuse the killing of him who made the threat, without th-re be some slight demonstration at least of an intent to put the threat into exention. The law says that the slaver, even when set upou by his adversary, must ba?lnre:i to the wall before be may rightfnlly take the life of his ansaIIant. It will not serve either to reduce the case to manslaughter, for here was time for cooling and no renewed provocation. This case was aggravated, in my judgment, by the circumstance* which led to it. I mean ihe attempt of O'Brien to seduce the wife of Cunningham. If Cunningham bad Insulted Mrs.O'Brien, and O'Brien had killed him for that insult after fifteen or twenty minute* of separation and oooling time, it would have been murder; and it greatly aggravates his crime that be should first insnlt lire. Cunningham, and then kill her husband because she will not con tent to be sednced bv him. I have been visited by some of the very best people of thia District in O'Brien's behalf, and am not in sensible to his meritorious conduct as a soldier: but I cannot close my eyes to the feet that he has been guilty of i horrible murder; and I cannot forget that leniency to ench a crime I* Injustice to the com mon ty. We need not look outside of this very case to see the verification of thia principle. When O Brieu bad struck down his victim with his official bludgeon, if Lieutenant Sen, kind-hearted and amiable gentleman as he is is, bad sternly?without leniency?discharged his doty by holding him under arret until be should have been tried on Mrs. Cun ningham's complaint for hi* assault upon her hus banJ Instead of merely stripping him of hU hadg* of offlc* and ordering him home, Cunningham to-day might have still lived to comfort his family and O'Brien had not been in prison under sentence for the h vliest crime known io the law. And who shall -a>,if this setileuce shall be commuted, bow many murders may flow fn m the commutation, ami how mai r more men may net for this most heinous crime eul their lives upou the gallows. since writing the foregoing I have received the ?<her papers promi-ed iu Mr. Kiddle's letter to yon, and examined th?-m; but I find nothing to shake mv conviction iii the least in the righteousness of tic judspneaiet the jnry, who gave the prisoner a fair an<l impartial trial, or of the rulings of the intlg" wl opresided over their dg'iberaCons, ami who -o well knows how to adniiais-er jus Ice In thei|nall:y ?ifmenr when the life of a fellow being and a gal lant soldier of th? country hangs trembling iu Ihe K lance. ?
