The witness refused to an-wcr as to what those instructions were. Mr Key objected to the continuance of this *vs t m of examination, and the court sustained {he oojectibtt. Witness resuming: at the time the appoint ments were given to Dr. Miller and to M r. Lenox, witness had completed his application to the President for the marines; it had Y**n written When they called on him; thins* he had given the appointment* before the application was made to the President; witness toot the applica tion there himself; don't remember who were ap plied to, to act as special police; witness gave Central instruction* to the captain of police to find person* to act a* special police and report to witness; they had reported to him before the ap plication was made. A ropy of the affidavit of Capt. Goddard was here Landed to witness, who said he believed it was a correct copy. Toe Marshal of the District was at the office befrve witness went with the application to the President'* house. Mr. Bradley asked the witness if he applied to, the Marshal to call out the pa?ie eomitatu.? ' Mr. Key objected to the qnestion as lieing sim i!ar to those whi^h had been ruled out by the t ?>urt already in the caif. Mr liradlev did not urge the point The court, however, after discussion, dec ided that tine question might be put. The witness then replitd that he did not catl upon the Marshal to assist him. the Maishal said iiotfciabout It to witness There was no con versation between them as to that point. Mr Linton asked the witness if the Marshal had bis poi$e with him at that time * Mr. Kev said that he never heard of the Mar walking about wi'h his posse with him. When witness thst saw the cannon, it was in front of the east end of the maiket house proper; witness saw Birkliead running something into the yun; witness did not see tbe gun taken awav: it was pointed directly at the uinriiK**; didn't see <i?-ner;ti Hei. lerson with his kneeagain*t thegnn; didn't see him at the gun at all; went to Captain Tyler and told him to take the gun; he had, wit ii?.ss thinks, given the order already, the mariues weir west of the east gutter of Seventh street; the murine* charged direcily across the street, wttn*?s followed tuem when they charged; the nitrifies Birtl after the change was made; the rest of tl: marines remained in line; don t renieinl>er to have a?v?ied with Jas. A. Gordon at the City hail, as lo \* hat he told the crowd lie would do, if they did not disperse; witness did not say thai lie would order the marines to tire, if they did not disperse; *aid he might have to order the marines to Arc; there was no application made by witness for volunteer military rorce until after marines had been applied for; sometime after Peter Bacon came to the witness, and volunteered to obtain military force: witness asked hini to whom he should ap ply Mr. Bacon said that if witness would give ruin a law book, he would tell him; witness thought the d.*uger was too great to the city to slop to study law; Mr. Bacon then looked at the law. and it did not seem to be very clear to him about it. and he said to witness that either General Jones or Colonel Hiekey could order them out; w tness asked Mr. Bacon where General Jones w;s to be found, and was told that he was proba hl> ir. Bladensburg, and Colonel Hie kev might or mi' ht net be at the capital; witness thought it was too late t? go on such information; the order had probably passed for the marines; Mr. Bacon said something about having two hundred men under arm* in two hours: witness did not lieiieve that it could be done; did not say that Hughes was a member of the American party; he acted with that party; don't know that he was a member of the I'nion engine company; the hall where the Ameri can party met was draped in mourning; the im pression in the neighborhood was that the hall was put in mourning by the American party, at<d not by the I'nion Fire Company. Mr. Kliisasked the witness what was the power of the Marshal as a civil officer. Mr. Key objected to the question. It was debated by Mr. Ellis. who wished to show by it that the civil authority of the execu tive had not been exhausted before applying fir the marines. The question was ruled out by the Court aud the cross-examination of the mayor was closed here. Gen. lltndtnon, recalled ?The cro?!S-exami nation was again taken up by the defence. Mr. Lliis stated to him tliat he wished to un dersta*d a point in reference to his evidence yes terday, in relation 10 the wounded man, Biddle nian. whom he took to the mayor. Witness said, in explanation, that he pitied the mail, aud oh-red hi:n no abuse; did not say to him '-you lie, you young whelp, 1 saw you do it." alluding to the iring of a pistol by the pris oner. i'hill'p S.

The examination of this witness closed here, and the Court adjourned. FIFTH DAT. On the opening of the Court this morning. Mr. Key announced tbat the United states would close the case for their sidrwithont any farther exami nation of witnesses. Mr Radcliffe said that, by courtesy of the coun sel for the prosecution, he had been permitted to make a single remark in relation to his client. He was aware that, in appearing in behalf of the I young mar. whom he now represented, lie had occupied* a dHicate position, and one which might compromise him with his political friends | and associates; but he felt that it was his duty, as I a professional man, to disregard ail consluera j tiaiis of that sort. He appeared in behalf of Chas. ! Hurdle, who, he bad no doubt, had been a wild, reckless youth; bi>t, in the circumstances that had been brought out with regard "to his action on the day ?f the riot, there was hope for him?he had ??aved the life of one who was a friend to the speaker?who was an American citizen?anil i^ion that issue lie was here to defend him, with out fee or reward. But, in so doing, he was not d--fending the riots; his position in regard to that 1 matter was well known to the community and to th?? world, having been declared repeatedly and publicly. He was a Democrat?had always been one, and always expected to be one. He had f.^ly expressed his opinion in regard to the con duct "of the President, that, when called upon, he had come with the promptness of a Jackson to tlm relief of the citizens, ami witli the modesty of an Aristides had declined the honor that was due to hiin, and was cheerfully tendered. The Court requested Mr. Radcliffe to leave pol | itics out of hi* rem3fks as much as possible. Mr. R said that such remarks had been made in this trial by the counstl, and the bloodiest stump speeches be had ever beard had been made in renounce to the course of the Executive. He wished the reporters to put this fact down. His (lient had exhibited the mildest deportment; he trad saved a man's life on that day who was his bitterest foe, if politics were the standard by which he was to judge. Circumstances make strange bed-fellows. He was with the defence in so far as his client was concerned; but aside from that he wished it to be known to all the world that he was opposed to their course. Mr. Radcline closed by thanking the jury and the Court for their kindness iu listening to him. Mr. Bradlay stated that two of the defendants ;Garner \ Jones) had not been named by any of the witnesses in the examination of the prosecr tion. in connection with the late riots; and he I asked for a verdict of the jury,in relation to them, as well as to Charles Hurdle, against whom he claimed that there had been no evidence given. The court refused to grant such verdict, for the reason that evidence might still come out in the examination for the defence, which might im plicate them in the riots. Mr. Radcliffe announced that he was done with his client, and washed his hands of all matters concerning the trial. He had defended his client from pure motives, and would now retire from the trial. Mr. Scott asked that the Court should ad journ over until Monday morning, to give the counsel for the defence an opportunity to confer together and prepare their case. The business of the Court could really lie expedited by the course ha urged, as, if they went on now they would be obliged to call their witnesses pretty much at hazard, at an unnecessary consumption of time. They had summoned a large number of witnes ses for the defence, but by conferring they would probably be able to dispense with the examina tion of many of them. I Mr. Key opposed the motion to adjourn, re minding the other side that this was the fourth day of the trial, and the defence ought certainly, by this time, to know what the majority of their witnesses could prove. Mr Bradley said that it was impossible in this case for the defence to tell what course the pros ecution would pursue. Upwards of tifty witnes ses had been summoned by Government, not much more than one quarter of whom had been examined Tin* defence had thus been taken by surprise and were; not prepared to goon. Sub p?i iia< h ul hern sent out. he said, for upwards of sixty witnesses for tne def-ncc, and it was requi site that they should have time to produce these witnesses atid to ascertain how many of them they would need. Mr. Kllis, on the same side, said he hail been retained at a late period on the case, and it had been uitcrly impossible for him to have any con sultation with his associate counsel; such as was necessary to arrange for the defence; and he Thought it not unreasonable to ask an adjourn ment until Monday. Judge Crawford replied, that, whether the counsel had consulted or not, was an ail'air of their own, which the court could not take into consideration; but that it was certainly reasonable that the defence ohould have an opportunity to get their witness' s. The further consideration of the case wa? accordingly postponed until Mon day morning at 10 o'clock The couit then adjourned.
