WAsiiiNdio.N , January 10. Mr.

licly returning thanks to the many
ununnnt counsel through the country
v\ho hml by mail assisted him witli
such good counsel rolativu to a propel
presentation of the defense BO as tr
unable luin to accomplish \\hat In
had ( hino and might yet do in criminal
practice. The jury should divcsl
themselves of emotion and sentiment ,
and consider the case from a purolj
intellectual standpoint. The case wm
one in which tliu plaintill' was called
to sit in judgment upon the dcfondanl
and in winch this jury worn interested
equally with other citizens in present'
ing. The jury wore a part of the gov >
eminent , part oi the ' people , part ol
the nation , for the 'killing of whose
chief magistrate the prisoner was
called on trial , and on that accouul
wore bound to bo extraordinarily euro
ful to divest themselves of their per
sonal feelings before forming jud < j [
mcnt. They should forget that Prosi
dint Garlield was one of themsolvei
and perhaps pursonally acquainted
with some of them. They shoulc
steel their hearts against the attempt !
which Judge Porter would undoubted
ly make to appeal to tlioir feelings
The speaker had from the first licit

The district attorney , Porter , Davidgc

prosecution had failed to show any <
thing tending to provo that Guiteau
was a bad man and unlikely sincerely
to bo afllicted by any religious fueling
or delusion.
The burthen of'BcoVillo'HHl'garn'enc
was that the prosecution had labored
to bring against Guiteau an avalanche
of little things in order to build up a
charge. They had failed to bung
against him a single thing done bofuie
July 2d , for which ho should hang
his head except adultery.
"Yen , " said Guiteau , "and I'll ven
ture to say there is not now in thin
court room one innocent person on
that score. "
Then Scovillo recited the stoiy of
the woman tnkon in adultery , quoting
"Lot him amongst you who is with
put sin , cast the first stone , " and sij-
ing , "when Ho looked up the wo
man's accusers were gone. "
"I presume it would bo the name
way here , " said Guiteau.
After recess Scovillo continued the
attack on Davidgo for alleged pen or
aion of testimony in his address to
the jury.
During a pause in tins projepiJingi
just after reference had been madu to
his many debts , Guiteau shouted : "I
have lots of money now. Lot mv
creditors send in their notes and 1
will pay upsquaio like a man. "
"They think , " said Scovillo , after
enumerating numerous small itenm of
witnesses brought forward by the
government , "they think that
with this vast amount of odium heap
ed upon him , with his character
blackened , with his history i.ikod up
and thrown against him , they will

evidence of the witness who testified
