The jury in the casoof Major Williams ,
after being out nil nh/ht , In might in n
veidict yesterday forenoon aciiuitting
him of the innidet of James Hughes , It
xvas n surprise to neaily everyone. The
prosoeiilion hail been nllended xvilh
many dinieiillies. K * eenis that ex cry pos
sible obstacle has been thrown in the way
to pievrni the conviction of this fclloxv.
The verdict \xill not eliange the opinion
of Iheoxerwholm'mg majority of the per
sons knoxx ing an.I . I lung about the ease ,
audio many -eemseNcoodingly strange

We , the jury , lind ( hat it is far better
that n hundred innocent men should be
nnpiitted than that one guilty man -hould
be eonxicted innocently

not have shot him.

That Hughes xv.i not killed.

killed
That Wlllimns xvns not < if age , and not
responsible for xvlnit he did.
That he did mill.ing.
That xx lint hi- did xxn < all right.
That U'llMnni" must luxe fell himself
innocent , tor he did not even open his

lion of any ol lliu damaging evidence
against him.mi. .

We. tl.e people , lind ourselves sur
prised.
We lind lli.'it oxving lo the pecuiiniitie.s
of our methods of esceutnii : law , n man
can shoot iloxvu another in a public
jilnce , xvitii niiinerous witnesses seeing
him , and yet escape punishment.
Thai important witnesses can be kept
out of the wny , ami those \\lio me not
out of the xvny cannot be mails lo tell
what they Knoxv.
That il is ju.stsuch soil of xveiknes-e !
in out legal pioccsses , eomt mnehincry ,
and slat lite books , thai causes the pee
pie to occasionally lo.se all patience ami
take the enforcement ol law mlo tlujir

pulled : i revolyi-r on Hughenud . that in
