This was the end of this celebrated cause. Later in December, 1868, President Johnson published his general amnesty proclamation, which by common consent was held to cover Mr. Davis' case, and upon the 15th of February, 1869, the following order was entered in the Circuit Court of Richmond:

The motion, on appeal in the Supreme Court, of course, was never called, and is now filed amongst its archives.
