ties in New York so closply approxi

A peculiar feature of Republican

eagerly the wordsof counsel and cheer
they speak, and citch glimpses of their
lives, only to wish for a more 'ntimate
knowledge of their character, and the
steps by which they have attained their
present position. Dr. L. P. Brocket,
the popular biographical Editor of Ap

fifty or more of ihese men, including

every reader to be interested ncd de

works that we can unhesitatingly en

and the excellence of its engravings, it
is a model.

A Curious Di.t.isio.v. A man on
trial iu Henry county, lUitioi.-, fur mur
der, was clearly proven guiity. The
counsel for the defense asked leave io
enter a plea of guilty of manslaughter.
This was refused. The prisoner then
plead guiliy i.f murder as charged in
the indictment. The court accepted
the flea and discharged the jury, th-re
being no question of guilt for them to
pass upon, and here is where the case
assumes an alarming hap. The Gen
eral Assembly of that State, at its lat
session passed a law that in all cases
where felonies are punished with death,
the jury may return a verdict of guilty,
aud as a part of the verdict, are re
quired to determine whether ihe prU
oner shall suffer death by hanging, or
be imprisoned in the Peniteniniiy for
life, or for not le.-s than fourteen years,
aud that no person rhall be sentenced
to death by any court unless the jury
shall have so found in their verdict up
on trial. The Judge held that upon a
plea of guilty the court could not sen
lence a prisoner to death, bui must im
prison liim for one of the terms named
in the law. This construction of the
law makes it ea.-y to avoul the death
penalty in Illinois in any conceivable
or in the most aggravated case of mur
der. We clip fn in an exchange the fol
lowing specimen of resolutions which
pasted through the Florida Legislature:
