The head article details the trial of Samuel M. Andrews who was indicted for the murder of Cornelius Holmes. The account was "taken from the testimony in court at the trial, the whole of which [E.J., the author] heard; from personal interviews with Deacon Andrews in prison, from conversations with persons in Kingston, both those who believed him guilty and those who thought him innocent of murder, and from a personal examination of the scene of the homicide."
"Holmes was beaten to death with stones by Andrews, whom he had named as his heir in his will. The defendant pleaded insanity and self-defense, for he had to fight off Holmes' attempted act of sodomy" (McDade).
