I. > !?1 Monday Afternoon, April 8. S The cast* was opened for the iiovernnient l?y Mr. dei 'otter, who said lie had heen solicited by the '''* dher Counsel to act as their assistant. Although su le considered himself but poorly qualified for this illioe, he should proceed to give un outline of the pp vtdence which would be otlered to establish the J 'iii11 of the prisoners. The question before the ju- p,., y, he would remark, incidentally, was, were the wl risoners guilty of murder, or were they not! No ^ itlier question would come before them. The pri- at oners were charged with murder?nothing short jJJ if it?nothing more. No question of law was in- bu 'olved, and he presumed no other question than dii he one he had stilted would be raised. A murder loc tad been committed?a cruel, cold blooded inur- *ltl ler?and the prisoners were charged with it?but "P villi nothing else. The trial was an important one; jjjj mpurtant certainly to the priionerx, lor their live* de- w ' ended upon the remit; imjiortant to the Government, in- na nmucli a* it wa? the duty oi the State to protect itsull l(ai ml vindicate it* rights. The law* had hern violated, and UJ1" i wu? iicinsgi j iu me permanency ui rnese law s, mat |1(lj heir infraction should be punished. It was important to jirr In- community-every citi/en was WlMtid, un<t the sfety of everyone deluded, in some degree, U|?on the c|j esult. It was for their interest that whoever committed .| j lus crime should sutler the penalties ol the law. The f(J|| ;ovurnment had but one object in v iew?to ascertain who ((j( onimitted the murder, und then administer Justice, stei n- (tn y. and fearlessly. It hud no feeling ot revenge to gratily , 1()l| : entertained none. It would discover none in thetriul. (lj ?he jury had noticed there were a number of counts in an, he indictment upon which theae men were unsigned? UU( hey would bear in mind, however, that the cliurg<-s were ' imple and substantially the same. The two prisoners |*hf eforo them were charged with murder?alternately, as j? rincipals and accessaues at the fact. The guilt was the ' ume in degice, in both cases. II they were present when * he inurder was committed, und did nothing to prevent it, f]a, r to bring the principal to justice, they were accessary j t the fact; and quite us guilty us the real murderer. He spoke of the nature ol the evidence which could he iroduccd liy the government?it would he general, cir- ' unistantial? not positive and direct.
