The findings in the ca.e of Private Benson, are approved. Private Benson, will be released from ar rest and restored to duty. In the case ot Sergeant Alberts, the finding on the fourth specification is disapproved. The findings on all the other specifications and the charge are approv t cunlirnied and will be executed. In the case oj Lieut. Hawkes, the findings on the first charge and its first specification, and on tiie second charge and its specification are approved. The find ings ou the second, third and fourth specifications of the first charge are disapproved. The Commanding General cannot hut think, that the Court has been un duly influenced by the degraded character of the olfendeis, who have been placed in the iron collar at Beaufort jail, and has not sufficiently considered, that it concerns the honor of the service, that no want of sympathy for the sufferers should cause the introduc tion of such ill practices to be overlooked. All punishments, particularly those inflicted without sanction,should be strictly confined to those authorized by the customs of the service. It need not be said that the punishment- inflicted at Beaufort jail is not among these, and is more suited to the old use of the jail as a slave pen, than to a military prison of the United Hiatus. Besides no officer ordering a punish ment should, by his abusive language or conduct, give reason to suppose that personal feeling influences his proceeding, if he does, tne punishment loses all good effect and become a source of positive evU. Bftt there ia a graver circumstance yet in this case. Bv the concurrent testimony of Cooper, the man confin' and, of his fellow prisoners and or the jailor, the iron collar was used to exfort a disclosure from Cooper of the party who furnished him with liquor. However de sirable it may have been to ascertain this person, the employment of such means, by whatever name called is is fact torture and a disgrace to the service and the country. The Commanding General trim's, that he will never again have to notice such a flagrant abuse of power by an Officer of the armv. Lieutenant Hawkes is released from arrest and restored to duty.
