Intended FliitHt of the Uebel Congress. fKrom the Richmond KvmiHer, May 26.) Surety Congress will not persist in its determinant* to dej?art rrom ttie se*t of government on th? ,3tst of this month. Veeterdsv the resolution to adjourn upon that day occupied the House for an h?nr, nnd was then post pontd Mil Saturday Now between this dajr ana Saturday * vtiy momentous event may befal. Klther General firaat'a array may be abolished, or General Lee's may be retreating within the fortifications of Richmond. Surely our legislator* cannot intend to make the question of ad journment or no adjournment depend upon that military event. It hss nothing to do with the business before (v ngrest; aodthat business Is the thing which they ars h'TO to cousidor and transact. There are bills and re*<autlodl referred to tbe various committees of tbe Mouse, col yet reported upon; some not even yet exam ioed iu c lOatnlilee. There are suggestions for legis lation upon seven or eigl>t important subjects, con ?srln.lo the i'ruaideot's special message, none or tbsm yet actetf on except one We know that tbe OouDtry is ex tremely inviting at this aenaon of the year; but business Hi st ami pleasure afterwards Is a most excelleot maxim, and it is to be hoped tbat until tbe lent committee has carefully and do'iberatety presented its last report, and the bill has been debated with due csirenessaad clr. enmsi'ection, there will be no mention of adjournment * Timor#. Herein we da not put ths matter upon any sentimental footlog nor naorn it with lofty historic parallels. We do not mention how the Roman .Senate sat in sublime silence while the Gauls came pouring through tbe streets of Rnnje, flooding tbe Senate house itself, and bow the bar barton* wer j awed by the sad grandeur of that reverend a?st*nbly, all sitting In a row upon ivory chaira, and with long white beards flowing down their breasts There Is nothing ho imposing in the present matter In hand; no need to invoke any of the muse* nor any of the graces on tlis present occasion. Tbe point is simply that constituent* have delegated those legislators to oon.e here and put through certain matters of Gun federate business; and tbey ought nut to run away until that! hnsi. i?ss K ? Ren away is a hard word; yet ws are not w ithout some apn#ehensinn tbat the public at large, and the (!o?fede rato soldiers, and the federal soldiers, and all the news I>a;-4rs, and foreign nations, and future historians, and the makers of comic songs in ages to come, will all apply this very term "ruu away," or some equivalent, more or less offensive, to tbe procedure contoinplated by tbe resolution now before the House of Representatives and Standing for debate on Saturday. It will be urged indeed, on next Saturday, that all tbe material leelsia tion may be despatched in a few hours; and that nothing really remains of a nature sufficiently Important to detain gentlemen from the cool rural retreats which already woo them to their pleasant shades Vet, after all. a censorious world will connect this adjournment in some measure with the fact tbat Grant's army 13 within twenty five miles of Richmond. At this particu lar moment It may even tie said that more than usual time and attention ought to t>e bestowed upon every de tail of Congressional business. And even if all wsre done and finished, no jiretexi of aay business any longer, it wculd l>o well, while Grant's army is still in existence, and stiU threatening Richmond, that Congress ' nhouid still remain In sossioo. It might occupy itself with s-et debater. upon historic questions; as whether Jrlhis 0?ar or Napoleon R'raparte was the greater man; or upon the nature or virtue and 1 the structure of the human mind, and tbe difference be 1 tween tsiiKation and perception? anything, in short , of | tbe mc, st abstract, use'ess, trumpery and recondite sort, save and except one tbing only We would exelude from debate no subject sacred or profane, nothing In all history, I poetry, prophesy, physic* or metaphysics, except this one ainele matter ? we mean Mr. Leach's "peace"' resolutions and the disgusting Hum about North Carolina. Human nature rati hear no more of that. How dea'rablc soever it may be that Congress shoud remain with us another week I or m?ruh, it were better that they all ran away before dsylicht to morrow, for parts unknown, than that they ; should slay to matiuder and snivel, or listen to miunder I Ing, snivelling or drivelling about peace. Our sincere re j si>ect for some North Carolinians whom we see dally ? brought into our hiepl'als with palo race* and shattered limbs, coming from the rront of the battle ? this sincere re j sjwet compels us to deprecate all consideration of the peace resolutions, and to declare that we do not hold the State nor her soldiers responsible for sneb a treason to manhood sad to common sense. Our respect for tbat ? which i.? good in North Caroline intensifies our disdsin for that which is mean; nnd. therefore, while a debate in Congress 00 , for example, the old red aandttoae would give us true pleasure, we do trust that the 'negotiation* lor i>eace" may be totally barred, tabooed, shut out, voted down, swopt under the table. I'.ut ? avoiding only that topic? let our tweraas held Ma ground and quietly get through with its business. If those gentlemen should hastily abandon Richmond at this moment, why should not all tbe member* of the sd wilolstr ition ? Why not tb* President ? 1 ben, following the example of those authorities, who are supposed to know more than private people, we ahenld have a ?'ftlanuierie" of all tbe new or floatiag population? the war population? here who could soipe up money to go away . s panic aatong those' com pelled to remaio. the roads of the wTioie confederacy thronged with headlong lugilivrs, spreading dismay and (WntMarledneaa, white General Lee's army, perceiving tbat do conildeoce j# pUced is their prowess, would no longer Qgbt wiih the same spirit to protect a thankless, nerveless country.

I know well it would bo impossible to get yo? people, tf they possessed full knowledge of these facts, to consent that proposals should now be made by us to (hose who control tbo government at Washington, Your own well known devotion to the groat cause of liberty and independence, to which we hare all com ?nttted whatever we have of eorthly possessions, would induce you to take the lead in repelling tbe bare thought of abject submission to the enemy. Yet peace on other terms Is now impossible. To obtain (be sole terms to which yon or I oould listen, this struggle must continue until tbe enemy is beaten out of his rain oont ? deuce iu our subjugation. Then, aDd not Ull then, will it be possible to treat or pence. Tin then all tender or terms to the enemy will bo received as, proof that we are ready for submission, and wi I encourage him in tbo atrocious warfare which he Is waging. I fear much from the tenor of the news T receive from Vorth Carolina that an attempt will bo made by pom: bad men to inaugurate movements wbicb must be c o sidered as equivalent to aid and comfort to the enemy, and which a I patriots should combine to put down at any cost.

Will you pardon me for suggesting that my only souroe of disquietude on the subject arises from tbe fear that you will delay toe long the action which now ap pears Inevitable, and that by an oveiearncst desire to reclaim by conciliation men wh >m you believe to be sound at heart, but whose loyalty is more than sus pected elsewhere, you will permit them to gather such strength a* to re-uire moro violent measures than are now netded* With your Influence and position tbe promote ? of tb? unfounded discontent now prevalent in your State would be put down without tbe use of physical forces if you would abandon a policy of concilia tion and set them at defiance.

At baif past four In the afternoon Recorder HofThian arrived sad entered the court room , where tho jury are oonflned, when the following proceedings took place. The prisoner having been removed to the Tombs, ho was not present at thia timer Recorder to Mr. fllnlon? Tt will take some time to get the pr, sonar here. Will yoo waive his presence* Mr. Clinton ? Yes, sir; 1 will wslve bis presence. Tho Clerk railed over tho name* of tho jurors aad pat tho usual question? "Rave yo<j agreed upon a verdict, gent lemon V' Foreman? No, sir. Recorder Hoffman? Gentlemen, I bar* received a com mnnleatioa from the foreman atstlng substsntlally that you have foiled it impossible to agree. 1 have kept yoo together for a long while, because I deem it more l baa ordinarily important that yoo should make overy effort to come to an agreement In the caae. It took Ive days to select a jury to try It, aad, after the experience I have bad la getting a Jury , I felt that it waa necessary that *"tne floal disposition of the caae ahoald be made by you, ht order that the Court and county nay bo saved tho im mense trouble and expense of a new trial at the aext term. 1 fear there may be eome mtsenderntandiag In the minds of the Jury about the law of this csae as laid down by the Court, aad my object io coming here now, after receiving a communloattoa from your for emu , is to know whether yon would like to have further In struct lea n poo tho law la tbta oeae. with a view of aiding you in your doliksralione. That la tho object of mv vjslt. If you desire aoy instruction, either ie the deflmMoM of crimee or the different degreeo of them, *r In any other particular affecting the merits of the oaeo. 1 am reedy to give II to joa. The sixth Jnror? I think the Jurors aaderstaad tbs law In tho caae perfectly . The Court? I am roa<ly to give yoo aay additional I fr it root loo. The foots of the oaeo, aa I have told you, yea know a* wall as 1 do; but the law, es applicable to It, yoa may aot kaow as wed es I do That la for yon to say. If you desire iastriictieii I am ready to giro It lo yoo age ia. Foramen? 1 think we understand II tboroaghly; we may ">e s little aelray; but we haveulbed It over end over agala, ae that It seem* ea though w? bad nothing to argue. The third Jaror-I thluk It woald be batter if we had the law deni ed a little bolter?If ws bad your cbargo dsflaed a Utile more olearly. Recorder? I' any Juror re^uasta II, I will agala repeat the lew ss It aflbrte (hie caae Mr, Clintoo? I mast object, after all Ibe Jurors hat oae having said thst they oaderataod the law aad do aot call for any Instracttoaa. Recorder? Refore I five aay further laslructloa oa the law I shall esad for the prleoeer. The Recorder. Clerk, eoaasel aad the few spectators who happened to be In the balldlag at the time, retired, from the room MM tfce prisoner arrived. After ft brief interval m affioor returned from Iki prleoa with TTiillf. whereupon tM Recorder r* wtorM the r?oa iU loos MM leit apott MM Imob TUa Bwrdar addreesdd the Jury as follow* Ai oaeof your number elated tbat be thought ooom further Instruction upon the l?w would be lealrable. I ah ill *!?? K to yen befw-e leaving you again, for your S*. Iib-ratloae. And Arst, I w?!1 toll you, as I did the otter day, whit rourd-r la tbe first degree Is. Killing, wIm per:?traied from a premeditated deei?b to eflecl tbo death of the poreoa killod . or of toy human being. The premedk. t*ieu design to kill ta all that Is neoessary, aa stated la that dortnltioa, (or Ike purposes or this oaee Premedtta (ed design , eoootylmg la the deoialunB of our oourhfc metnw a design to kill Termed at any time prior ta the -Iri'ctugof tbe blow wtucli re* ilta la death It need M be formed at an v ooeurrwnoe prior to the act wb'Ch lm medittely resulted ta Uie death of the p?rty ; If It la formed antecedent to the time tbe blow was given, aad it Is aith a design, it is sufficient to constitute murder la I he drat degree as recognized by tbal law. The statute then declarea that such killing rthal la, the killing ef a human being), unless it ha murder In tbe first degree, or manstaeghter, or excusable or Justifiable homicide, aa provided In tbe law, *h -a perixHruel without any da Hign to effort death b a iiernon o gairrd In (he commie hion of any fe'nny, shall be doomed murdor In tbo second dngrne. I t"ld you the oilier day that the lawmakers had wot defined in auv other manner than tint what mir der la the second dei-ree w;ie. Tuny simply declared that tb* kiting, unless It be murder In the first degree, or in iraSi iglitor or t'i<agab!e or )nstlf)ot>le h unlade, la mar dor in the seo'?na4j ree, when perpetrated, aa I said, without any do<li! ?fl enact death, bv a perf?n engaged In the comrnls- ion (ff any lelony. Thofce are the two da greee < f murder. Mow. t lie statute of ? He P?at?? provider that aiton an lo'ilrtmcnt for any oHeuoo (and thia la an indictment for murder) consisting o! different decrees, aa prescribed in the chapter which I read to you, the Jury may find the accused guilty o' the ofl'enco of the degree ohargei tn the inDictir^nt, or may And such acc'ined per son gbilty of any decree of a ich oflbneo inferior to tbat chfirijBit in the Indictment, or an attempt to commit such offeaoa. Tbe meaning or tlila Is, where this chapter to wlticti I have refer-ed divides any crime iqto degreeo, as first. boo M'd, liiird or fourth den'-ee, although tbe pet sou may l>e ipdicted Icr the o'J'enco in the first decree, dm jury may find him not guilty of Iho Bint, aud may llud hi>n guilty of an Interior degree, as of the Recond Now, t have told yea, at tti# request 0f the cmoael for tbet*lsooer, that there cm be no murder except where there Is a de'lga to take life. There are other circumetannes In whloh murder may exist in tbe absence of any peculiar featured wbioa do not exist Ic this cue; and thero may be murder without a design to take life Under tbe statute tbe jury mey And a person guilty of an Inferior degree, and nol guHteof a sujierior degree. If tbey so cltonso. 1 lieu upoa tbe ojher suHiec.t of ma' slaughter I hare something ta *av;$ut tho definition <>r extendable or Justifiable hotal rid" ijeod not he glseo; fur under the pilnls.of ?qmu*4T Ihey lava not asked me to tell you what la excu?4W4 hr' justifiable liomioide. The distinguishing feature -batweoa manslaughter and murder is that in murder there le a d? iga to kill, whereas In manslaughter there is the killing without the design to kilt. When I oome to read Ike. dadniil'ins to you, yen will understand It A maa who. |n a cruel or unusual ai toner, without a design to kill? without haying any partloular daelja in hit mind to take Ma li le of a human b?t?r ? lakes the life of another, would be guilty of manslaughter In the Kocnnl degree. Thla statute prorMet again that when a man, Without a design to kill, with a dangerous veapoa lakes life, that would he manslaughter In tbe third la gree. The etatale provides, wale, that tbe kllMnff, where 'It le with any weaiion In a manner ant cruel or uaus?al< would be manslaughter la the fourth degree Now, those are tke defioiltona and distinctions of ihooe varioaa offences. The provisions of the statute are very broad, covering altnoet every eeaceivable eese that ooatd he imtgiaed under any state or soclnty. Manslaughter in tb* Aral degree I bare not attempted to define to yoe, be cause, as ! understand It, that branch of the law does aet apply to the facts in this case. Manslaughter io the Beoond , third and fourth degrees I hare explained to yo?? i as requested. It seems to me, gentlemen , with tbe lew thus explained te you ao plain that It cannot bemlsua' I dorstood , aad aa there Is really little dispute upon the facts of this case, that the jury ought to o?mo to some sgreeaient. If they are witling to lay soldo pr?( judics, biaa aad formtd resolutions, and take a fn-eh took at this rase, and ooeslder It aa men Just gone out to consider a case, and meeting upon some common ground to discuss it falrfy.tbeg must come to eome conclusion that wilt be juet ta ail parties. It is hardly necessary that I should refer to the law relative to Inaanltf ; hot T will simply eay upon thti suVieet that every man is proven to bo sane and ta praxes* a sufficient degree of reason to be responsible for bis crimes until tbe o -ntrary le presumed to the sat kh faction of the jury beyond all reaaonah'e doufct; and ta establish a defence on the ground of insanity It atuat be clearly proved tbat at the time of committing the act the party accueed was laboring under such a defeat of reison from disease of the mind as not to know theaa tare and qmiily of the act he was doing, or, if he did knew it, that h? did not know be was doing what was "*roeg. IT a man has reason and mind enough to underataod the nature of an act, to know the difference between right and wrong, tbe law holda him reaponrible for his ofleaoe. The other proposition about Which onnnse! has .adrtreseed you. and which I was requested to charge, Is sabstaa tlally this:? If. from any defect in his reason . or rrom a nf mental condition growing out of injuries to tbe hrain, the man, at the time of the eommis."ioa of the offence, le la such a condition that be cannot form a specific design ta kill, that would briag it within some of the degree* or manslaughter, aad where there le no daalga to kill that would be manslaughter, and not murder. I believe, gen tlemen, I hays covered all the propoeltions. I am very aorry that I cannot consent to discharge you from the further consideration of this case; bat, with my sin? or duty to the public, although It may ffWt you to great peraonat Incoereoience and even suffering, I do not fhel at liberty ta dteoharpa you I aball have to remand you in charge of the officers. It Is unpleasant and pa nfUl to me to new thai you are here, perhaps deliberating qr trying ta be ooa? vlnced against yoc.r Judgment; but with my view of the law and tbe facts of this ease, and my eeaae of duty to tbe public, I feel that I most keep you together. Mr. Cllnmn? I except to your Honor's charge, tn whMfe you eey that tbe inteut to kill is suBclent to couetUuta murder. If farmed on the Instant aad at tbe time lha meeting toea place. In order to raise the petst task your Honor to charge that it Bust exist before the yar tlee met Recorder? Too can except to all tbtl I hive said. Mr. ninton? 1 else ask your Honor to charge that ? there Is any reeasaahle doubt ea any of the propeeliloaB yon have addressed ihem tuton, tbey mast give the prta> oner the boned t of that doubt, and decide In his favor. Ihe Coart? I here already charged that. TH? Recorder Informed toe jury that he would he M attendance at any botweof tbe night to receive their ear did.

Hunter's face was enveloped la hlg handkerchief while the verdict was being ressrdsd; hat ssids rrom that he did not appear to exhibit eay mora sign or emotion tbaa was visible throughout tho trial.
