Tae sun i^ht streamed thiougu the dusty windows v-f the wurt r-?om, and shed a halo around the long gray locks an l broa 1 i?rehead of the defendant; while tae plaits tiff s harsh features were thrown into s id bolder relief by the tame beam which sofieucd the placid c untcnance of his adversary. '? l'he plaintifl s lawyer made a mo^t elo quent appeal for his client, and had we n??t been better informed about the matter, our hearts would have been melted bv his touch ing description of the return of tne desolate hu.-band. and the agony with which he now beheld his household gods removed to conse crate a "'ranger s hearth. ?? The celebrated Aaron Burr wa- c-unsel f?r the defendant, and we anticipated from him a .splendid display of oratory. I had never ' seen hint, and shall certainly never forget my | surprise at his appearance. ??Small iu ]>ers>u but remarkably well formed, with any eye as quick and brilliant as an eagle's, jtnd a bp,>w furrowed by care tar more than time, he seemed a very difierent being from the arch-traitor and murderer I had been accustomed to consider hiui Hi* voice whs oue of the finest I ever hiard, and the skill with which he modulated it. the va riety of its tone?, and the melody of its ca dences, were inimitable. ?' Uut there wns one peculiarity about h?m that remit ded n:e of the depth <f darki.e-s which lay beneath that fair surface. You will smile wheu I tell you that the only thing I disliked was his k-tep. lie glided rather than walked ; his foot had that quiet, stealthy movement, which involuntarily makes ol* think of treachery; and in the course of a long life I have never met with a frank and honorable man to whom such a step was hab itual. ??Contrary to our expectations, however. Burr made no attempt to coniute hut opponent'* oratory. " He merely opened a book of statutes, and pointing with bis thin fingers to ouu of the pages desired the referees to read it. while he retired for a moment to bring in the principal witness. We had scarcely finished the section whioh fully decided the matter iu our minds, whui Burr re-ente'ed with a tall and elegant female leaning on his arm. She was attired in a sim ple white dress, with a wreath of ivy leaves encircling her large straw bonnet, and a luce veil completely concealing her countenance Burr whispered a few words, apparently en couraging ner advance; and then gracefully raising her veil, disclosed to us a face of proud, surpassing beauty. 1 recollect. as well *s if it happened yesterday, how simultaneously the murmur ot admiration burst from the lit s ot alt present.
