Mr Carlisle mid that supposing Mr. Hill's testimony waa taken, could he testify with aa much accuracy, taking part in tbe fight, aa If he had been perfectly cool ? Juatlce Reaver aald that Mr. Hill seemed to be quite cool and collected. Mr. Carllale said be muat be an extraordinary man then, and aaked tbe Squire whether be thought be would be cool with him (M r Carlisle) standing la front of him with a loaded pistol firlag at him ? Suppose he was perfectly cool, and eweers that Mr. Vanderwerken fired the firat ahot, aad suppose ao one swears the other srsy, and you cone to the OMcluaion that Mr. Vanaerweracn did fire the first ahot; that Is not the question.
