Gen. Stone

BOSTON, March 28. – A resolution was introduced in the House, to-day, instructing the committee on Federal Relations to inquire into the expediency of addressing to the President of the United States, a memorial, asking for the immediate trial of Gen. Stone, now in military confinement.  The resolution was opposed on the ground that such interference was uncalled for, though the speakers expressed the hope that Gen. Stone would speedily have a trial, which public justice demanded.  The resolution was rejected almost unanimously.
