gnrU to tho trial of Jefferson Davis:
Sir A. special term of tbo Circuit
Court of tho United States was op-
pointed for tho first Tuesday of Oc-
tober I860 at Richmond Va. for
tho trial of Jefferson Davis on tho
charge of tronson. It now appears
that there will bo no session or that
Court in Richmond during tho pres-
ent month and doubts are express-
ed whether tho regular term
which by law should commonce on
tho fourth Monday of November
next will bo held. In view of this
obstruction and consequent dolay
and thero being so far as tho Presi-
dent is informed no good reason
why tho Civil Courts of Clio United
States are not compotont to exercise
jurisdiction within the District or
Circuit in which tho State of Vir-
ginia is includod I deem it propor
to request your opinion as to what
furtlior steps if any should be tak-
en by tho Executive with a view to
a apocdy public and impartial trial
of tho accused according to the Con-
stitution and laws of the United

In response to tho above the At-
torney General on tho 12th inst.
states : ' i
'I am. clearly of tho o jion that
there in nothing in tho present con-
dition of Virginia to proventthe full
oxcriso of tho juri -diction of the
Civil Courts. In tho actual state of
tilings your proclamation of peace
aud of the restoration of civil order
guarantees to the civil authorities
Federal and Stato immunity against
military control or interference It
seems to me that in this particular
there is no necessity for further ac-
tion on the part of tho Executive
in the way of proclamation and es
neeiallv as Congress at tho late sea
sion. reauired the Circuit Court of
tho United States to be hold at Rich-
mond on tho first Monday of May
and tho fourth Monday of Novem-
ber in each year and authorized a
special adjourned term of that Court
to bo ordered by tho Chief Justice
of tho Supreme Court at such time
and on such notice as he might pre-
scribe with ihe same power and ju-
risdiction as the regular term. This
is an explicit recognition by Con-
gress that tho stato of things in Vir-
ginia admits tho holding . of tho
United States Court in the Stato."
Ho also states that "Mr. Davis re-
mains in custody at Fortress Mon-
roe precisely as he was in January
last when in answer to a resolution
of Congress you reported commun-
ications from the Secretary of War
and tho Attorney General showing
that he was held to await trial in
tho Civil Court und no action was
then taken by Congress in reference
to the place of custody. The Dis-
trict Court of tho United States for
tho District of Virginia where Mr.
Davis stood indicted for treason has
been notified that theprisoner would
bo surrendered to tho U. S. Marshal
upon a capias under the indictment
cut the District Attorney declines to
have the capias issued because thero
is no other place within the District
where the prisoner could bo kept or
where his personal comfort and
health could be so well provided for.
No application has been made
within my knowledge by the coun-
sel for Mr. Davis lor a transfer of
the prisoner to civil custody. Re-
cently an application was made by
his counsel for his transfer from For-
tress Monroe to Fort Lafayette on
the ground chiefly of sanitary con-
siderations. A reference was prompt-
ly made to a board of surgeons
whose report was decidedly adverse
to a change on the score of health
and personal comfort.
I am unable to see what further
action can be taken on the subject
by tbo Executive to bring tho pris-
oner to trial. Mr. Davis must for
the present remain where he is un-
til the Court which has jurisdiction
to try him will be ready to act or
until his custody is demanded nndcr
the lawful power of the Federal
The Attorney General suggests
that to avert misunderstanding on
the subject aa order be issued to
the commandant at Forte Monroe
to surrender the prisoner to the civ-
il custody whenever demanded by
the United States Marthal upon
proceM from the Federal Court.
Mr. Stanbury encloses a letter
from the U. S. District Attorney for
Virginia wbo states in answer to a
question why no demand bad been
made upon the military authorities
for the pnrrender of Jefferson Da-
vis in order that be might be tried
upon the indictment found against
him in the U. S. Circuit Court at
the term held at Norfolk in May last
that two reasons bad influenced him
in not removing him from theircus-

of what is retained in the country

ties of Texas bordering on the Red
River and also in tho Indian Ter-

ous springs occur. Mr. Russel of

told us of one which ho saw that
had a constant flow. This is some-
whero in that section but wo can-
not specify the locality. In tho
geological rooms are specimens of
indurated petroleum or bitumen
from Northern Texas. Specimens
of bitumen havo been lately brought
to us which aro said to havo flowed
from rocks a -few miles north of
Austin. There aro tar springs near
the town of Burnet in Burnet coun-
ty from which tho bitumon is said
to flow at particular seasons. There
aro said to be several situutod in a
