WEST ACQUITTED. An Astounding Verdict? The Man Who Killed and Skinned a Negro Declared Not Guilty? West Yet To Be Tried for Arson. Dover, Del., June 11, 1873. At Ave o'clock this morning tho tolling or the Court House bell Indicated to this community that the Jury iu the West murder trial had agreed upon a verdict. I hurriedly arose, dressed and pro ceeded to the Court House to find the lull bench present. Chief Justice Gilpin said to the jury:? "Gentlemen, have you agreed upon a verdict?" and the answer being given the lew peopie pres ent and the prisoner in particular looked intently towards the Jury box to hear the result. "We find the prisoner at the bar not guilty." "Not guilty?" queried the audience, with bated breath, and "Is it possi ble?" looked the honorable Justices and the Attorney General or Delaware. "On what grounds?" inquired Chief Justice Gilpin. "On tne ground ol seli-dolence," replied the lorcman. At the requeat ot Attorney Geueral Love the jury were polled, and thus ends 'or a time the greatest criminal prosecu tion known in the annals or Delaware. There is still the charge or arson against West, whloh will be tried In Qctober next, uud to this end he lias been remanded to the custody of tho Sheriff until that time, having been acquitted on tho ground or self-delence. It may be taken for granted that the insanity plea was ignored by the Jury ; therefore there is a possibility, ana a very decided one, that he may be convicted on the latter charge, which is nlso punishable with death. The jury all of last evening stood nine tor acquittal and three lor con viction. At one o'clock this morning they went to bed. and arose at lour. Hy live o'clock thev had agreed upon a verdict. The drama, or larce, irvou will, is ended. As West's brother laughingly said to mo last night, "They don't hang men in Kent county lor killing a nigger." I agree with lum now. West iceis a good deal easier, lie walked back to jail v.lth an elastic step, and smiled as sweetly as an Italian brigand when his friends con gratulated him on his present escape. How varia ble is the human mind I Last night more than half of the population of this town, having listened to the Attorney General's argument and the Judge's charge, thirsted for a conviction. Now that the verdict hag been e\culpatory, the same people say:? "Well, it would have been rough to hang him for killing a nigger, wouldn't it?" THE UNIVERSAL PEACE UNION. Seventh Annual Convention of the Society? Speeches and Resolutions? A Girat Effort To Be Made to Abolish War Among the Nations of the Earth. A small number of persons, members of the Uni versal Peace Union, met yesterday morning in room 24 of the Cooper Union, to celebrate the seventh anniversary of their society. The Union was started some seven or eight years ago by a number of well-meaning persons, who arrived at the conclusion that this world had had enough of wars, and that something should be done to put an end to them. The difficulties assailing those who engaged themselves in this Utopian enterprise were great. War Is horrible at all times, and sometimes it is unjust; but there are tlmoa when the honor of a nation is assailed without reason, that a peace policy wonld not be alone cowardly, but disgraceful. The time may eventually come when "swords shall bo beaten into plough shares and spears into pruning hooks;" but that day, from presout appearances, "is "far distant, the era being yet too imperfect to allow nations to rely for" their preservation upon the force of moral suasion. There is no country in the world where the "peace policy" has been KO often tried as in our own, and the results are so [ deplorable that the persons who would substitute 1 blankets aiui flour for rifles and cannon may well I pause belore they bring anotner Modoc war on our heads. The people who met yesterday were, how ever. undaunted by failure, and were as entnusias- ! tic in support of their pet theories as if they had been perfect successes. The meeting was called to order by the Presi dent, A. H. Love, of Philadelphia. The attendance. 1 as stated before, was very small; but the lack or numbers was atoned lor by au increase of talk, almost every one having something to sav. A number of letters of sympathy were read from prominent lights who were expected to be present, accompanied with expressions ol regret at their i absence. A poem on peace was also read by a colored lady, Mrs. Francis Harper, of Philadelphia. The sentiment of the poem was good, but the poitry was very bad. A number of resolutions were read by the Chair man, setting forth that, as friends or peace, the members of the rnlon demanded universal dis armament throughout th" world, calling upon nations never to give cause for war, and always to reiuse to go to war when called upon. The resolu tions were unanimously adopted. The doctrines of the resolutions, which were of great length, were very extravagant, and If the nations of the earth would take the advice of our iriends In room ?-*4, some of them wonld soon tlnd themselves wiped i out. Peace is a very good thing, and when you are I sra.tten on one cheek it is doubtless a very edify- i in* thing to turn around the other; but the prin ciple is likely to be abused, and the better way, | ! alter ail, Is when attacked to give good square ; knockdowns. The members of the "Universal Peace Union," however, think otherwise, but tliey are likely to have very few followers. The formation ol an international court was recommended, to which all quarrels should be re ferred. A communication was read from Secretary Delano, in answer to some questions which were asked about the treatment of the Modocs. The slncerp thanks of the Union were tendered to President urant for his Indian pcae? policy. Com- . mittecs were appointed on finance lor the ensuing year. Addresses wrje thci\ delivered on the best ; ?n$tTioff orieciirmg a tinlversal state of peace throughout the whole world by Messrs. Gideon Frost, J. B. Wolff, Lillle D. Blake, Alfred H.

A nurht BMsion was held and a number of ad dresB' s or t lie. same tenor as those ot the morning were made. __ SATARTA ANfr-.BIG TEEE.

Brilliant Opening Day of the East ern Yacht Club. A THIRTY-FIVE WILE COURSE. The Azalia Carries Off First Prize? The Shadow Second. Boston, Juue H, 1873. The drat regatta of the Eastern Vacbt Club was sailed to-day, the yachts martin* from a stakoboat moored off Marble Head l.lglit, about twenty miles from thts olty. The day dawned most uniavorably, the rain falling in drenching showers, which, in more than one instance, detained the owners of yachts from repairing to the rendezvous at Marble Head. But. though beglmuug in clouds, ram finally ended in sunshine and a fair breeze Irom the southwest, fresh, but productive of last sailing. The tugboat Charles H. Horsey left Boston at an early hour and proceeded to Beverly, where a party or ladles and gentlemen, with two of the judges, were taken on board, the tug afterwards steaming to Marble Head harbor, In waiting for tho arrival of the tug Weymouth with tnree ol the judges on board. She soon came in sight. The judges were then trans ferred irom the Horsey, and the preparation lor the race approached completion. Not long alter the John Homer, a sldewhecl pleasure steamer, with a large party of ladles and members of the Club with their Irlcnds, appeared rounding tho point at the head ot the harbor. She steamed on up the harbor and took a favorable position (or observing the start. Meantime the yachts which had been entered for the race, and which had previously been cruising about tha bay, had entered the harbor and been made ready for the start. Other craft, Including two small steamers? the Mischief and the Henry Morrison? were ilittiug about on every hanu, many dimly discernible through the mist, which might almost have been termed pour ing rain. Though the weather seemed anything hut favorable for yachting it was thought best that the start be maue iu the hope that the skies would ultimately brighten. Tho race was to be sailed uudor the ordinary regulations govern ing the Club regattas, with the stipulation that in the event of but one yaclu of a class starting she would not be entitled to tiie pri/.o offered to the winning boat in her class, or to any prize what ever. uulcss she should be first In the race in point of tune. The sequel will show tho force of this provision. The entries for the race were but eight In nun*, ber, owing to the threatening state ol the weather and some misunderstanding ol the part 01 tne owners of two or three lino crait, which might otherwise have been entered and proved formid able competitors.

Shortly after eleven o'clock the signal gun was fired for the start, which was to be a (lying one, and soon the flag, with the numeral "one," flying irom tho judge's boat, anuounced to the captains of the waiting vesgelg tljat they \ve?S to sail over I "course Kq. 1," which was as follows:? From the stakeboat, which was moored a short distance oatable ol the light at the entrance of the harbor 19 "Hallway Rock," leaving it on the star ward iiindf; llience to a point bearing the eupho nious title ol 1'ig Rock Stakes, which was also to be left on tho starboard hand; thence round ing Kgg Kock to port, passing between it and the Nahant shore, a spot familiar to every Bostouian; thence to Graves' bed buoy, passing it to starboard ; thence around Harding's bell buoy, back to the starting point, making In all a distance of something over thirty flve miles. The start was effected In excellent style, the Coming being the first to cross the line, at llh. 8m. ft&s.

B. Phillips, arrived at the starting point about three minutes lite. She nevertheless started and followed the race to the finish. Her time was not taken, but she exhibited Milling qualities which produced a conviction that, had she participated in the race, the result would have been different. At the time of starting the wind blew fresh from the westward, and the boats were not long in rounding Half Way Rock, the Coming being still well In advance. From Half Way Hock to Kgg Hock the course necessitated frequent t acks, giving the yachts an opportunity of snowing their powers of beating against a head wind. The Coming, while making a long tack in shore, ran in too far and missed Fig Hock stakes. This caused her to lose considerable ground, which, however, she regained before reaching Kgg Rock. Meanwhile the Vision had passed the Juniata and soon after the Coming, but gained only a temporary advantage over the latter, though she eventually passed the stakeboat second lu the race. The Juniata, Azalia and Julia were making good headway, and were but a little dis tance apart, the Fearless holding a place between the two first named. ACCIDKNT TO TUB SILVIA. When about half way on the run to Kgg Hock the Silvia, which was overhauling the yachts ahead of her in splendid style, had the great misfortune to lose her maiutopnmst, which yielded to the strain imposed upon it by the main and Uulloou 1 caff topsails, both of which were drawing to their utmost extension, and snapped off : just ai>ove the cap, bringing the light npper sails down with a run. As U this were not enough, j ! before \hG crew could clear away the sails ! and hamper, the spring staj parted aud , fhc vessel becamo to ail intents a complete ! wreck.

After laying tg ninl r^palrl:^ llie WRiNJf'N i to what extent wus possible ?he stood back >.u xarblehead In a crippled condition. A* nothing could be done by the other vessels in the way of assisting the sufferer the yachts kept en. preserv ing mudh the same order as before, the second class sloops being some distance in the rear. Just before rounding Kgg Rock the Coming i.nd Vision had a lively brush, running along for some distance side oy side. The Coming gradually forged ahead, however, obliging her opponent to puss under her stern in order to come about. The Azalia. too, was showing some fine sailing while standing in toward the Kock, although under ber j lower mils alone she was flying along ut i a splendid rate, being handled In a very superior manner, every sail drawing to perfection. The rest of the fleet came dropping along, the John Homer, with tiie excursion party on noard, at some distance In the oftlng waiting lor the yachts to turn the Rock and stand away for Graves' Hell buoy. Shortly alter one o'clock t lie Coming shot out behind the rock, leading the nearest boat, tbe Vision, by but a single minute IWICKBINO THE KOCK. I The order and tune of rounding the Rock was the 1 following:? * Snm*. n. H. .1. Name. H. K. S.

Meantime the weather had cleared, and the sight presented by the yachts was very beautiful. In fact at this point of tbe race nothing conld have been desired more favorable to fast sailing, and if the word may be allowed In sncli a connection, com.ort. Alter rounding liard inir's bell buoy the wind continued irom the south- ' west, somewhat lighter than before, enabling the yachts to come down th<? homestretch with free sheets, most ol them setting their balloon jibs and flying kites generally. This press of sail proved too much lor the durability of the Juniata's foret.opmasf, and she came in with about a quarter of an acre of canvas flap- t ping In the wind and preventing the foresail irom j drawing to its proper extent. As the Coming crossed the line Brown's Brigade Band *n the I Homer struck up "liail to the Cluei," and salutes i and waving handkerchiefs greeted the first liout In.

Among the witnesses examined to-day at the trial ol Wagner for the murder of Anethe M. and Karen Christenson, was Mis. Mary H. Uoutvet, the

only witness of tho tragedy, and who fortunately escaped being one of tlie victims, she is a very intelligent looking woman. She testified I am the wife ol John 0.

The trial will probably occupy the remainder of the week. About fifteen witnesses for the government were examined to-day. Their statements, while show ing circumstances and suspicion that strongly point to the prisoner as the murderer, uo conclusive testimony has as yet been elicited. Frizzle, a Newcastle cooper, testified:?

A few days ago lie feigned sickness and was removed to the orison hospital in conse quence.

Strange to relate there were two men In the apart meut at the time of the sad occurrence, but they did uot notice It until the noise of the gurgling iu the suicide's throat attracted their attention. It was then joo late to render any assistance. A doctor was immediately summoned, who examined the wound and pro nounced If, latal. Death ensued in an hour alter wards. Coroner Brit ton viewed the remains, and said it was unnecessary to hold an Inquest. I he , officials iu charge are severely censured lor their lark oi vigilance iu allowing this iinlortunate man to have concealed about lum the knife with which he let his me blood ebb away.
