EVENING STAR. LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. Criminal Court.?Yesterday, the case of Cornwell and Burk, charged with the murder of Pacqual De Fa!coon the 2d of September la#t. was taken up. Martin and Ash tord appearing as counsel for the defence Ernst Stichman sworn.?Knows Burk and Cornwell; met them in September last near the Capitol, and went with them toward the Navy Yard ; on the flag-way, between Fifth and Sixth (treats, on Pennsylvania avenue, met De Falco and a colored man ; De Fa loo went to Burk and Cornwell and asked what time it was ; the reply wa* " What do yon want to know for. you d ?d son of a b-h ?" De Falco and the little one(Cornwell) clinched; both fell, De Falco on top ; Burk then pitched in and commenced beating and kicking De Falco ; they had been drinking ; De Falco had also been drinking; it was between 10 and 11 o'clock in the evening ; De Falce wm a mu sician belonging to the marine band. Dr Miller sworn ?Was callcd .*d of Sep tember to visit De Filc? ; found hi? head and face very much bruised, a small wound left side of tLe head back of the ear, also a severe contused wound on the left side of the head, and a large contused wound on the left breast, about an inch frnm the nipple. Dr Burk was called, ou the morning of the 3d of September, to visit De Falco, then at the hospital; found him partially sensible; in all prr b ability the violence used was the cause of the man's death; cannot say the cffu?ion of blood of the lung or tho extravasation of blood on the brain caused death?either was suffi cient to produce death; the symptoms, as evinced by the post-mortem examination, might have been produced by a fit of apo plexy; if called to the post-mortem examina tion, without knowing of previous circum stance*, should have attributed the death to apoplexy; the wounds might all havo been pr"duced by a fall. Dr Eliot's testimony corroborated the fore going, and said that violent excitement might have en used apoplexy, which would have pro dnced symptom* similar to those discovered at the examination; oannot say it was caused by violence. This morning, tho evidence having closed, Mr Ashford addressed the jury for the de fence, an 1 was followed by Mr. Martin, also for defence, who was speaking when this pa per went to pre*.

Editor : Being naturally of a retiring disposition, I dislike to come before the pub lic , but justice to my kind compels me to vio late my feelings. The inconvenience of cross ing the Avenue now is severely felt by those unfortunate individuals who have not the ex treme felicity of wearing hoops. Since those mighty barricades have been the " mode," a Tossing will accommodate only one at a time; and ns they are almost always occupied, the sterner sex are compelled to take the stroet. As winter approaches the annoyance and the hoops increase. Now that the subject has been brought to their notice, I hope the city fathers will take immediate measures for re lief. Yours, interestedly, Observer. Washington, Dec 1ft iy From J. Shillington we have Mrs Ste phens' Monthly for January, illustrated by some of the very best specimens of wood en gravings we have ever seen in any American raagasine; Godey for Janury, already noticed; Peterson's Magazine for January, a fine num ber ; and Graham for January, good looking and entertaining as ever. Graham announces that Charles G. Leland, better known as " Mace Sloper" and " MeisterCarl,'' has been engaged as its literary editor.
