Rawlings sworn ?Saw Lee on tbe morning of the 38th of February last at the earner of 20 -h and H streets ; witness was ac e^mpanici by a man named C>gan ; Lee asked witoe?s where he could borrow a revolver ; witness told him he had one, but it was tou largo to cirry in his packet, if that was what he wanted, but th it be eould get him one of Mr Handy. Cogan asked Lee *-if tbe dogs were getting bad again'"' Lee laughingly aniwered "yes; * this was between 7 and 8 o'clock in tbe morning. The District Attornoy announced that the evidence for government closed here. Dr Wm B. Magruder sworn for defence ? The pistol used by Lee on the 28th of Feb ruary was shown to Dr Magruder, who iden tified it as one he had seen at Lee's bouse sou-e lime last summer, during a visit there, and which Lee at that time told witness had been in his possession fur a long time. Cross-examined ?Dues not remember how the pistol came to his notice but his impres sion is that he picked it ap from a shelf where it was lying; has known Lee for four or five yearn; has been his physician; Lee is a feeble man, so mach so, that about a year and a half ?go witness thought he was going to die of eanaumption. The cane used by Hume upon Lee was shown to Dr. Magruder, who gave it as his opinion, in answer to a question, that a blow struek with tbe ferule end of the cane upon the temporal bone would kill any man Andrew Carroll was sworn, and identified the pistol as one he had seen et Col. Lee's hcuse last tummer, and which he was can tioned by Col. Lee not to handle, as it was loaded Benjamin F. Darby, of Georgetown, was sworn, and Identified a pocket-Sook shown him, as the one he found in the poeket of his drean-ooet oa returning from tbe President's levee on the night of February 27ch; on open ing it he found the name of Lee upon some of the papers, and on hearing of the affray next meraing, he tcok it to Justiee Drury's office, supposing it might be the one in question. bammel Drury, sworn ?Is a justice of the peaee of this county; witness identified the nocketbock as the one brought to him by Mr Darby, and whieh, on being shown to Lee, who was at his office, waa identified by Lee as the one he had lost; Col. Lee came to his of fice after the affray and delivered himself up; witness identified the cane in court as the one brought to hie office oa tha: morning; when it caa? to his office tbe ferule was off James G Smith, sworn ?Is a partner with Stevens, the hatter; sold a cane on tbe morn ing of tbe 2Sth of February to Mr. Hume re sembling this one; this was in the neighbor* hood of nine o'elork in tbe morning The evidence here closed for the defence. Mr Bradley, for the prosecution, asked that the Court should instruct the jury as fol lows : " If, from tbe whole evidence aforesaid, tbe Jury shall fed that on tbe evening previous to the death of Hume, tbe prisoner and Hume patted la anger, with tbe expectation that tbey wuuid meet tbe next day, and mat the pris oner, la aatielpation of said meeting, pre pared himself wltb a deadly weapon, coaceil?d tbe same about bis pcrstn, met tlume, and by reiterating tbe charge be bad made oa tbe previ ous eveLlag provnhtd Home to make ae sseauit upon him ; that Uume did rnnie the said a?aa- t; and tlieT-upjB tbe prisoner killed him wltb tbe B?iddeadik weapon, tlien If the ju>y aba>l former be.leve tbat tbe prlaoner Inter, aed la F? -curing the shid weapon to kill said Uume In caae be should make said assault, a.:d alto la ten tied to p'ovose him, atid did provoae him, to mtke tbe same, be is gulltv of murder.'' Tbe law point*, and the fact* involved in tbe instructions asked, were argued and brought out by Mr. Bradley for government, and by Messrs D*vidge and Cbilton for de feres, with a degree of leg?l acumen whieh challenged tbe undivided attention of an au dience which had been standing in a most un comfortable position from 10 o'clock a. m , to 5 o deck p za Upon the conclusion of the arguments J adge Cra?rf>rd gave his answer to the prayer of tbe prosecution, refasiug the ins:ructions asked ; sni in doing so averred that the evidence did n?>t prove tbat Lee designed to provoke Hume t m-ike an atsault upon bim The court theu adjourned. ronnTB oar. Major Lilly's name was accidentally mis printed Nally in yeeterday's evidence. Tne Court met at ten o'elock this morning, the room be<ng crowded again. Tne District Attorney asked that tbe follow ing instructions sboald be given by the Court to tbe jury : " If the jury believe from tbe evidence that the prlaouer at Ue oar premeditated taking tbe life of toe de eased, and *rmed hUueeif wita a deadly weapon, and (having retson to believe tbe de eeased would call upon bim for explanations of tbe rtu>|? made against him by tbe prisoner on the evening previous,) premedl ated and Intended te reiterate said charge, and also designed and ln'e. dfed to u?e tbe said deadly weapon upon the peraoa of 10* deceased, in caae the deceased ?hoaid be provoked to assault the uleoner.and if they further believe from tbe evidence that tbe aid assault tbe prlaoner, whereupon tbe prisoner used tae deadly weapon aud took the ilfe of tbe deceased, being at the same time under no reaioaabie apprehensive of the losa of life or limb, or at enormous bodily harm he is guilty of sisrtUr." Mr. Ksy briefly recapitulated the evidence, aed, with bis usual ability, went on to show why tbe instructions should be granted. Tbe Court complimented tbe counsel for the Government oa the adroitness with whieh the propositions had been drawn up to evade tbe decision of yesterday, but declined to grant the instructions. Mr Davidge, for defence, then asked that the Court should give the usual instrnotions to the jury. Mr. Bradley asked tbat the instruction* should be reduced to writing, whieh was done by the eoanael for defence, and presented as follows : " 1. If from the whole evidence la this ease, the jury believe that at tbe time the accused fired the pistol he bad proper rtasoe to believe from tie circumstances mat surrounded him tbat hi* life was la danger, or that his pe. son was in das jjrf of serloes bar*", ihBi then tne homicide wltb which he ? lands charged eras eicusable upon the grout d of ae-f defence, and It makes no diffrr eaee whetaer the danger existed in point of fact It the circumstances, ia the opinion of the jury, Ju?;flad such belief oakl? part 411. if the jury eataitala reaeonable d wbt aa te any material facts nece??ary to make out the ea&e for the preeeeutloa, they mast give the bene It to the defendant " To tbe first prayer the Court gave the fol lowing answer: ^ " 1/the jury bailfvafte* the avidenee thai ths . v. lV. izz?; 7?

The second inetrnetion was granted. Mr Davidge for defencs offered to submit the ease to the jury without argument. The counsel for prosecution declined to ac cept the proposition Mr. Kej eommenoed addressing the jury at twenty minutes past 11 a m., reviewing the evidsnce with great clearness and power, and is speaking as we go to press. Music.?We accord space to the following commnnieation because satisfied that the ? e oution of the Marine Baad of this city de serves eraa the high encomiums it therein receives Thera is do better band or eompany of instrumentalists in this country, than this same Msrine corps band : Mr. Editor: Our city of Washington is blest with musicians of a very high order of talent, who may really be oonsidered among the very beet in the oountry To satisfy oneself of this it is only necessary to attend one of the many concerts, balls or levees which occur almost nightly; or visit the Fair of the Mechanics' Institute,?or, bet ter *1111, to have the luck to And oneself in the vicinity of a serenading party at whioh they officiate Those who had the pleasure of listening to the admirable performance of the Marine Band last night while serenadiag Mrs. Pen dleton, a well merited oompliment tendered to her by the Democracy of the Sixth Ward, will readily acknowledge the truth of these remarks It was ohoioe musio; beautiful, appropriate?and was no doubt duly appre ciated by the estimable lady for whom the compliment was intended. The band, under the direction of their leader, Mr Scale, opened with the anvil chorus from 14II Trovetore " snd the solo, by Esputa, was renderod in a masterly manner Xhen fol lowed, what perhaps it is not too much to say, was one of the fitiest flute solos ever heard in Washington. the music from "Hernani," per formed by Mr Fred. Prosperi. * Then came in succession those brilliant gems?the "Bird Welti," by Mr Scale, which, to be understood and appreciated, must be heard, for its effect is difficult to describe, and the "Bridal Schottisobe." composed also by Mr- Scale, and dedicated to Mrs. Senator Douglas; and, finally, in all its glory, the '? Sleigh Polka," with its bells and whip, not imitation of the great master, but the gen uine, real Julien. Every one around was most highly gratified for there certainly has not been heard in this city of ours more splendid music. That which is beard nightly at the Fair is fine, beautiful ?but this was still finer, more beautifal, and, indeed, it could not be otherwise; for the best talent was engaged in performing pieces writ tin by acknowledged masters,?the personnel of the band on this occasion comprising the flower of the celebrated U S Marine Band. March 25. ??- J. D. B Sasitart Actio* ?If we have to yield our common sense convictions to the garbled no tions of pseudo scientific men, we thill find that while they are arranging matters in the oolumns of the publio press, in accordance with their views, we shall have permitted the last and only opportunity to pass which will enable us to restore the city to its usual at mosphere and health. Are we to be told that the sewers are not the cause of the trouble at the National Ho tel, and that the cause is yet to be discovered ? What is this intended to insinuate ? And are we to believe it, end trust our lives and health to such false reasoning, that a few may figure in the peculiar language of science, while the vitality of the city is consuming ? No. We would rather abide by the knowledge which is the free gift to every man, enabling him by his sense of smelling, to avoid offensive cdors as icjurious to animal life. We know that to pass the sewer openings on the avenue is to insure neusea to some individuals, and in cer tain states of the system, to others ; that an atmosphere thus affected is to be avoided if the means can be obtained, no simple person can doubt. When we have the evil remedied, let science pursue her true and sure course, and she will reaoh the results we have attain ed. ' As Isquirt.? A fair eorreepondent requests us to asoertain why the usually gallant Com missioner of Public Buildings, proverbially a favorite with the sex, designs excluding the ladies from Lafayette Sq^e?as will posi tively be accomplished if too iron posts jast pat up before the gateways of the square are suffered to remain; for it will be impossible for a damsel habited in hoops to pass through them, without lifting her skirts at least waist high?an act of immodesty not to be dreamed of iq these refined time*. The Ibstitutb Iaau - The closing address will be delivered ou Monday night by S. A. Dodglass The Fair will, however, be kept opea on Tuesday for the benefit of the em ployees and of the orchestra, who have labor ed so succesrfully for the erjoyment of visitors. We imagine the Fair will be crowded from this time to its close Last night tome S300 was taken at the door. The Fair has in fact been a triumph for the managers and for the oity as well. - <? The Circuit Court this morning had be fore them the cases of Thomas J. Jones and and Thos. H Langly, an appeal from the de cision of a magistrate in fining them for fore stalling the market by purchasing poultry (they being hucksters) during market boars. The Court sustained the decision of the mag. utrate. On Monday the jury will be called and the regular docket taken up. Thb Fair, during jeeterday.-was more Urg* ly attended than on any previous day. The following schools visited it: Georgetown Male and Female Publio School; Uallowell's Female Academy, of Alexandria; the Private School of Mrs. Brown, elso that of Mrs. Latimer; Catholic Mission, and Ebenezer (Methodist) Sabbath Schools. Cbira abb Japas.?Two magnificent series of views of countries that christian civilised nations are not very familiar with, were ex hibited in Georgetown yesterday afternoon and evening to good houses, and all expressed themselves delighted, both with the views and the brief and clear explanatory leoture.
