EVENING STAK. LOCAL IlSTELLIQEirCE. S?cu!*b Trial or Hkhb?*t ? Fourth Dav. The indisposed juror, Mr. Owens, was suffi ciently recovered this morning to be able to resume bis place io the jury box. At 10 o'clock the prisoner was brought in. Some delay wai occasioned through the wit* ne??es for the prosecution not being in at tendance, and it vu suggested by the Dis trict Attorney that the hour to which the court adjourned had not been understood by the witnesses. \ Gabriel Dtvmois til called to the stand.? Is the cook at Wiltard's; the rule atWil lard's is that after 11 o'clock the cook cannot five any breakfast without an order from the office ; on the 8th of May, past eleven o'clock ? waittr came and asked for breakfast for a fan tie man ; witness refused, it being past the our; witness want to his private room for his own breakfast; heard plates breaking, bat did not pay attention ; in a few minutes heard the detonation of a pistol; went to dining room; saw Herbert with something white in his hand like a napkin or handker chief; Herbert ran after Thomas and Patrick Keating ; witness said two men is too much for one, and ran after Patrick Keating to push * im away, saying, "Save! save!" Herbert pat the pistol, to Tom Keating's breast, and after two or three seconds, fired; the blood flew out in a stream like from a bullock ; fol lowed Herbert out in the street to see where be went Cross-examined.?But three persons were engaged when witness entered the dining room; the reason he went into the dining room was because he heard the detonation of a pistol; wis in his little room at the time he heard it; if it bad been the detonation of a cap he would not have beard it; deceased was stand ing with bis hands thrown up when he was shot. | Witness illustrated the position of the par ties at the time of the shooting; described Herbert as standing ereot. | Charles Quinn called ?As he went into the dining room Herbert was seated at the break fast table; Herbert said " bring my breakfast d?d quick ;" witness cannot say if he spoke to deceased or him ; saw Herbert strike de ceased with his hand in which was b napkin or something white ; deceased went to a table and picked up something ; Herbert picked up a chair; Put Keating came in ; witness went out, and when he returned Thomas Kest* ing was shot; couldn't say if Herbert struck deceased with his hand or the napkin ; struck fcim in the face. Cross examined?Did not go to the kitchen to tell Pat Keating of the affray; the onlv blow witness saw was the one Herbert struck with the napkin in bis hand Jerry Riordan called.?Mr. Herbert and another gentleman came in about 11 o'clock and ordered breakfast; Herbert said " fetch me some breakfast d?d quick;" got a part of it and went for more, but cook said he could nt have it without an order; went to second-bcad waiter and asked Herbert's name; didn't lik*- to ask Herbert himself, because he spcke so angrily the first time; went to office for order; heard a noise, and when he returned saw the affray; saw Herbert seiie Pat Keat ing and shoot him; is sure he heard the first shot, and saw the smoke of it. CrOss examined.?The first words Herbert used was, " be cff d?d uuick and get tome breakfast " The defence objected to a question of Mr. Preston why witness did not ask Herbert di* reetly his name. The Court decided that what influenced the waiter's mind could not be introduced as ev idence. Ma. Preston stated his purpose to be to show Herbert's manner, and the state of mind he was in. Witness testified that Herbert addressed bim angrily, and that he did not dare to go to him to ask him his name; is positive that he saw the smoke of the first shot; Herbert was standing erect when he fired; witness took deceased out of the room; Tom Keating had nothing in his hand at the time of the shot; the cook separated the parties after the shot was fired; only the four were struggling to gether when witness returned from the office. | Witness pointed out on the diagram the posi tions where the two shots were fired.] One of the colored men in the kitchen gave witness the first part of the breakfast; there are three colored men and the French cook in the kitchen A question of the prosecution, as to the number of persons in the room, was objected to by defence. The Court decided that the rule was, that no question can be asked on re-examination by the prosecution except in relation to mat* ter touched on by defence. Mr Preston contended that the defence could not narrow down the questioning to one particular squad of persons in the room. Mr. Bradley Eftid be bad been careful to confine his questioning to the action of this particular group The Court ruled that the question could not be put. < A juror (Mr Owens) asked why an order -was requisite for the last part of the break fast and not the first. The witness replied that he supposed Mr. Herbert was hungry, and wanted some more. <<ireat laughter ) The Court explained to the witness what the juror wished to know, and the question being asked again, the witness replied that be supposed the h<Jur was getting later all the time (Kenewed laughter.) The witne-s was further questioned by mem bers of the jury in relation to the getting the breakfast James (Jutnn testified to seeing the affray ; left the room at the time he he%rd the report of a pistol and saw the smoke ; left them and met Devenois as he was going out; did not see the pistol. Cross examined ?At the time of the shot there was a clinch and a general scuffle ; chairs were uplifted ; Pat Keating was clinched with Herbert at the time ; witness heard the shot; did not see anybody fall, or any blood ; thought it best for him to leave, as there might be re volvers about; Pat Keating and Herbert were vlinched as tight as they could be at the time witness left the room ; lom Keating was a lit tle ways off. Thomas BrodeneJc called ?Saw Herbert strike deceased with a chair, and afterwards struck him with a pistol; witness ran out to tell Mr Willard there wai a fuss in the dining room, and when he oarne back the man was ?hot. John ttiely was called but did not appear. [The counsel for prosecution here retired for conference, as to whether they should close here or go further, j On their return, the District Attorney called William, Sekergtr.?Yf at Willards' on 8th of May; was up stairs in ladies'* ordinary; heard noise down stairs, and went down; met Patrick Keating coming out of the room with his hands on his head, asked him the matter; he didn't answer, but ran; went in dining room, saw three or four men near pantry door; beard pistol, and saw the blood on a man's breast; saw one man walking down the room holding up another man; the French cook was then standing near the pantry door; could'nt say who the men were near the pantry door; was two steps in the room when he heard the noise of the pistol; was in the north end of the room; Devenois was standing about one yard from the plaee where the shot wa^ fired; is positive that he met Pat Keating outside the room. Cross examined.?As soon as the shot was fired the two men went out, passing Devenois; witness first mentioned that he saw the affray on the same day to John Knbright; several days after talked to Pat Keating about it; saw Enbnght in ths room at the time of the affray; | witness described the position of En bright wnen be saw him] Eubright was not standing still all the time ; Enbright was not n.ore than two yards from the men who were fighting; did not see Pat Keating until some dajs after the affray ; no one advised him to come as a witness ; Keating told him be want* ed him as a witness; bad not contributed to pay counsel; could not see who shot the pie* tol there was no struggle going on. Much interest was luanitested during the examination of this witness, as in the examin ation of the witness who followed bim, as this was their first appearance on the stand. Hobert SchicartMf called.?Was at Willards' on business; was waiting at the offioe and heard a noise in breakfast room, which noise was suceeded by another heavier one; went to diung-rooa; saw something going on like a fnelee; saw the cook come in; knows the cook, because all his business is with him; saw the oook Dear the parties when the pistol was Ired; as soon as the pistol was fired the crowd around witness fell back; witness entered and 0aw a man standing with his hands to his breast; two gentlemen came np the room towards witness; one of them had a pistol; die man walked out on Pennsylvania Avenue and walked across to a brick bouse ; saw the French oook in the street at that time; at the time the shot was fired witness saw De venois make amotion with bis bands; when Devenois was in the middle of several per sons ; saw one of the men leare the group about the Una of the shot; this man was running ; he ran awaj after Devenois came in ; witness thinks he ran liter the pistol was fired ; did not sae any Ught going on at the time of the shot; did not see any one pressed down ; wit noss was standing in the south door at the time ; was at Wilfards on business. Cross-examined.?Is the first time he has been on this stand; witness mentioned to his brother about the transaotion as soon as he got home; spoke to Pat Keating, he thinks, the same day about it; bad a consultation with Charles Werner; told Werner that if Herbert was beaten by three or four waiters he would have done the same as Herbert did; did not Me Herbert beaten himself, bat thought from blood on bis nose that he had been beaten ; doesn't remember what time he told Werner this; is satisfied it was within three days after the affray ; when the corpse passed the house of witness, on its way to the infirmary, he ran up the steps and saw Patrick Keating with it, with a Clue eye, and asked him how begot it; thinks he spoke to no other of the waiters but1 Keating; from the noise he thought there was fight going on, but when he got in, tbere wss none of it; he got his impression from the noise that there was a fight going on; told Werner he saw the affray; he tola Werner that if Herbert was beaten by the waiters he would hare done as Herbert did; then several per sons there would'nt let him say any more; cook was verJ near the party when the shot was fired; did not see any chairs used; has had conversation with Mr Werner very often; witness thought there had been a fight be eause the parties looked as if a little fighting had been going on; when Werner told wit ness that he (witness) had said he could do as Herbert did, he got excited and said u No, Charley, you are mistaken;" he had said that if it was so, that Herbert had been beaten by waiters, he would have done as Herbert did; the persons who stopped witness from talking at Werner's, he thinks, were Germans; the remarks witness had made to Werner were not made upon what witness saw himself to take place, Dut upon what he supposed had taken place; at trie time the Bhot was fired the cook appeared as if trying to separate them; did not notice what the others were do ing. but noticed the coek from bis dress; there wad a scuffling when he went in, but no noise of throwing. The defence objected to a question as to who had summoned the witness on a former occasic a. The Court here took a recess of twenty minutes up to the time we go to press J*o Ray Caught, over the left ? This morning a young man was taken to the Guard House by a county officer, who appeared to be delighted when he announced to Captain Mills that this man was Ray, the prisoner who escaped from the jail The Captain looked at the prisoner and then at the officer, as if doubting the correotness of the statement. The bystanders began to laugh ; the Captain and the prisoner smiled; the officer looked confused, and was completely confounded, when one of the bystanders remarked that the prisoner was not John Ray but Patrick Rady, who resembled Ray about as much as a horse does a sheep. The officer explained that a man pointed him out as Ray, and be thought he was justified in taking him. R >dy laughed at the officer's mistake, and advised him not to be too fast in making arrests Rady went to bis work, and the officer left to be laughed at by his friends who were delighted with the mis take, as it turned out to be harmless. SkRiors Accidbst?Yesterday afternoon, a colored boy named Wm. Shorter was ar rested by Officer Parham and taken before Justice Offutt on the charge of shooting a small boy, a son of Dr. MoConnell, with a pis tol. Several witnesses, all email boys, were examined, and they entirely cleared the boy Shorter of any intention of shooting McCon nell He had a pistol and was going about with the boys exhibiting it He raised the hammer of the pistol and it slipped from his band and discharged the load in McConnell's face. It was stated at the office that one of the boy's eyes is certainly destroyed. The Justice dismissed the case with a lecture to children, and there was a crowd of them at the office, upon the impropriety and danger of carrying deadly weapons; and to parents up on the necessity for care in the proper train ing of children ; and to the prisoner upon the result of his folly. I*suraxbe Aobkcibs?Yesterday, Mr. D. A. Hall appeared before Justice Hall to an swer the charge of acting as agent of an in surance company without a license. The wit nesses not appearing in this case at the proper time it dismissed. Mr Hall then remarked that after to-day the officers would let bim?ct. At the same time ke drew from his pocket his license, and showed that he had complied with the law. Several other cases remained to be tried under the Corporation law, which will be found in the act approved December 11, 1848, to license, tax, and regulate agencies of insu rance companies. This law requires the agent to obtain a licebse, and every violation sub jects the agent to a fine of forty dollars. No person having a license for one company is authorised to act for another without obtain ing a license to aot for that company.

Brooks from sundry citisens of Talahatcbie county, Miss. Col. Bennett, a representative from that State, we hear, is soon to present it to Mr B. on their behalf. We do not know that we ever saw more exquisite workmanship of its kind any where than that bestowed on the tankard in question ? Tme Absob Cabb Dismissed.?Yestsrday atternoon, Augustus Ford, oolored, was taken before Justice Stevens for a further hearing on charge of arson The examination resulted in an order from the Justice that Ford should gir# security to keep the peace six months No one could identify Ford as the person who made the incendiary attempt, but it was sho wn that be had made threats, and the suspicion rested upon him Tbb Good Will Exccrsiob od Monday will precisely meet the views of all our citisens who are longing for a chance to escape, for a few hours, from the dust and heat of the city.

The Boston Evening Ledger, on Thursday, placed Fillmore and Donelson at the head of their editorial columns, and will support them in the coming election. The State Central Committee of Massachu setts hare issued nn address, recommending that the Whigs of that State avoid committing themselves for the present to either of the candidates for the Presidency, and urges a thorough organization, with a view hereafter of eoncentrating their strength, if found ne cessary, upon that one of the candidates who shall appear most unobjectionable to their principles The address closes with the aver ment that the first great Whig principle is nni wavering fidelity to the Union and Constitu tion ot the country. The Hards and Bofts of New York city are now fairly consolidated, by the joint action of the two General Committees. The prelimina ry steps of this movement were taken some time since. It was expected by some that at the last moment one of the parties would back down from proposed coalition. Slight discon tent was manifested by a few at the plan of union submitted, but the dissatisfaction was overrulod The meeting, however, was along and somewhat exciting one, lasting till nearly midnight, and terminated in the election of Mr. Lorenso B. Bhepard as chairman on the joint committee. GEORGETOWN CORRESPONDENCE. Gbobobtown, July 19,1858. The City Councils were in session last night. and transacted considerable business ; but the crowded state of our columns prevents its pub lication to-day. The examination of the f am ale department of the public school came off yesterday. The pupils generally acquitted themselves in a manner which gave satisfaction to those present, and reflected credit upon the teach ers. A large number of handsome premium books was distributed among the little Misses at the close of the examination. Most of the Board of Guardians was present. Owing to the interruption to navigation upon the canal, caused by the land slide near Cumberland, trade upon the same has been very slack during the week. We learn, how ever, that the repairs of the damage was com Eleted on Wednesday evening. A large num er of boats are expected between this and to-morrow night. The offerings of beef cattle at Drover's Rest yesterday amounted to about 200 head, near ly all of which was purchased by district butchers at S3 25 a S4 50 on the hoof, equal to $6.50 a S9 net. Lambs S2 50 a S3 25 per head. Old sheep very scarce and inferior. Spectator DIED, On the li-th Instant, W. W. OURRAN.
