'.be: the cxcop liora or the court io oorue of the omteuts of the specifi cation were coirec'Iy taken. On oxnminaiion of the record. It appears that I he trial wra.Bhadu on n ingle charge,wall four spocitlcations un der It, exhibitrd by order < t the War ropu"-tment. Tho charge is?"Conduct unbecoming an uflloer and a gentli n ut." It is not tecesearv to the understanding of the p 'iuti of law Mihmittcd to me to go over all the epehliea .ioos, or to repeat wry one of thiin. Analysis of the first spntlfi cailon will put iutii-w the en ire subject nutter of In m?iry. That spf" IficHlion "tales ilint Ilreiet lieutenant Colonel Mcntgon ery, b< irg in command at Fort Riley, in tbe Territmy ol Kut>as, did certain acts, in virtue or unler color id Ids i llico and command, which are set forth iu full, and then cone'aides in there words:? "-'.II which was nu abu-e of his trust, a violation of I is public duly, enl was conduct unbecoming an officer unc a k titleiuhd.'' Fach i I the tlnct oiher cpceiliea let* is framed on the ssmi-'l 'ory ; thai Is, It forth the fa-ts charged in lull end crnciudes with word* of i;ualification logically applicable?not Die same words, but word" standing iu Ibc same I'gul relation, as tbe concluding (xjiresslan of the li 'Bt Kpeoificalion.

To their finding on the secoyid. thud and f >ur'h -peci HcnlK-ns they subjoin a qiislifieatlon similar, >?utaii* multindi*. according to the substance of each of those time epvcifications. In cmcluslou, they say:?"Of tbe charge, guilty." I'yon Ihis ease, the main <|iie<iien, of eoureo, is of the validity of the proceedings of the court considered as convle.-ion and enlcoce; Incidental to which is Ihe other (jucriion, of the correctness ol the exccptinvs taken by Die court; and the two questions arc so much connected, that (lie) may well be di-cusscdand dis|H>sed of in one continuous series of observiv-ions.

In the American service the custom is to present a of i ret unbecoming!.. ? , join a "s..??lfic.\tl<iu" or specifications," in which are Mit forth the particular facts, which, it Is conceited, by tbe party prcmrriog the neensation, or hy the authority eideiirg the trial, constitute theofToace d.*?igna'ed in the "chaige." In the British service, on the other hand, there is no distinction lietwrsn Ui? "ehargo" as such, and the "-pc cificati' i." Fach cepantte fact, or set ol fact", constitu ting tbe natter of a.-cusution, Is set forth in u distinct < harge, own nllht ogh there should be a plurality of sub jec.'s of charge, tach one im|sirting a variety of the seme olT> nee, snd therefore susceptible of clsssiticsllin under gorernt lioad* of charge.

Ihr', even Iu each a ci.C ihero may be a plurality of acts i f tie same ctlVoce. <which tt is proper to charge, al though, if | r ved, to be Pillowed by but one p.tesiblesen teo"' for *11 the act*, flic proo s in tbe diffureut esses may treMf-? nt, one of the A.-cu?ations mxy break down, nnd Itcist - n of the cr?me, or oircuniitsni.es of aggrava tion, sir fie reverse, wiui bc?' npoa otttrior i,ue..tinoi; of sppiotnl rr ccii,mt'a'Ian rf , 'eucc, or of pinion.
