KCQUITTAL of YOUNG CHALONER for the MURDER of WHITAKER. QUEBEC, May 5. The trial for murder of H. J. Cnalouer, who shot Ensign Whitaker for seducing his sister, terminated ast night. The jury were locked up until this morn- ng, when they returned a verdict of not guilty. An attempt was made by the dense crowd of persons in the Dourt-room to mark their approbation of the result, out the demonstration was quickly suppressed. Dbaloner was loudly chetred outside the Court-house. Commenting on this acquittal, the New York Tribune wks :— How much longer must the advocates of the death penalty ,hus see men discharged wholly unpunished for the taking )f human life, because they insist ou a punishment against vhich the moral sense of the public revolts, and which no iverase jury can be brought to inflict! Men are not ac- piitted for mtirdering the seducers of their wives or sisters lecause the public regard such murder as praiseworthy or imooent, but because they consider the punishment nonstrous.
