The trial ot Cornelius Tuell, charged with the murder ol bis wife, was resumed tUis morning before Judge Fisher. There wa? a larger attendaaje at the opening of the court than was present upon any previous morniag. Among others were home tfmale friends of the prisoner, wlio warmly greeied UiiTt. liictrnt Attorney t'arrington stated that he found tlie name ot the :>ri?ou?*r's son upon the indictments oue of the witnesses. It was an ^tnbarraesing act to place the boy upon tbe st lid to awear in Uie cape, but as he had been hi retofore used as a witness, he (the Jhstrut Attorney ) was relieved of much of the embar rassment attending the act Of placing the sjn upon tlie stand. Tbe boy was the only witness lo the crime, and although the duty of using ti e l oy a- a wituesa was a most painful <jjie, la 1 ? li-ved the ends of .)U-tice required it. Mr. Bradley itt lie clid not know what the ch l;l Would prove, hut he did not desire to have the bov go out with mav be a reproach ?I on him. it. wa? a serious matter to n,se lids testimony?a nmi heart-rending task, and ae licj tt<< ihe l?i trict Attorney would fully .-a i-tie?l tUa; his dn'y aKo!nte|y required him to plane the witiitss up<a the stand before he dni -o. j While lti> Bindley wrls speaking t!ie pria oj er secuie?| to he much allected, and .-died i leaiv?and hu- feelingg Were so wrought up j thai he even cried aloud. It wa- an affecting i time, lor the court room wa.- crowded, and | many shed tears: while even some of the bailiff* i auu ollicers ol the couit, who day after day ee* ] trials ot crinuna's and affecting sceaes." had 0 c '>ion to force back the ti-ars. The jury also st? nud sensibly attec.ied.j Mr. t enda ll (:or tiie prosecution) jmj lis felt , i' hit duiy, a.- a-aoiiated with tlie prosecution i in this chse, to make a s:a lament. Nothing coitid V mor- paintul to him?e|f ai.d tbe IHs : trict A tori.ey than the obligation they were ur.tier to pla?.e ihe boy upon the stand. It the boy saw all the clrdimstances, it was due to j all?people and ja'ry?that all the lac:.- should i be brought out. Jle did not know what the | hoy's testimony Would he, but he did not nee that any reproach could attach ;o him. It was , due to the jury, who had a solemn duty to per Iorm. that all ihe testimony should hw elicited. lhi-1 b<iy wa> tjj^n called m. aud taken be j side Judge 1'ieiier, wlio closely qtie-tioued ? him relative to his understanding of the so lemnity of lii- position. Th<* appearance ot the hoy wa> the signal lor another outburst of evidently heartfelt feeling on the part of the father, who looked upon his son realty with something like affection. The boy was also much affert d, and shed tetll'S, exi'llllig the mpathy and pitj of all m the court. While the Judge was conver-mg with the hoy, Mr. Bradley etated that if the b >}? wa? not u-ed as a witne.-sthe detendam would waive all right to argue n. the prisoner's favor that the prosecution had lestiuiom th?y refu?ei| to i produce. After some further Cviiianltatloii with the boy, i th? Court stated that he found the Imy a ino-i lutelligeut one. lie should have iMten glad u" lie had touud not si)ltii-ient intelligepce to jus. tily tite admission ot the testimony, but he did not see how he could disallow the testimony as being incompetent. I<et him tell what he knows, and let the jury take it tor what it wa worth. Mr. Carrlngton said his duty was a most painful oue, aud oue he sincerely wished he did not have to perform, bnt it was due to th > public tbtti all the (acts should be known. He (Mr. C.) would hate been well pleased if tbe teHimouy had been decided ineompeteut. The boy Jam, * Tiit>7, a bright lad of JU years of age, wus then sworn and placed in the wit in^e stand, where lie srave way lo much emo t on and copiously shed tears, and showed mrch feeling. Before hetestilled, Judge Fisher stated that he could not, in accordance with his of duty, reject |h* testimony,aa the U v appear?>d to be a very intelligent one, and Wi fully understand the natnre of an oath. Bat he would instruct the jnry that the testimony of a child of such tender vearv, no matter how intelligent he might appear to be, must b? well weighed. Mr. Biadleyagaia addte?<eA the court, and desired to have the boy relieved of the an-, pleasant position be occupied. He Argued that it required something more than a mere idea of ?ere lit J tocoiistitate a competent witness. The vitneet should to imbaed with a full sen sibility of the position In which toe stood; shonld realize thai-he was in the preseuce of the 1 Almighty; and realise to the fullest exr-eut the awful vtrpo??ibUity reeling upoq hixo. Mr. Carrington, in reply, mad* a few rtisirkr, and said bo bad dona bit duty m ot tering to place the witness upon the stand, ?ud it was bow the duty of the Court to d*ci,i?> whether thd waa a competent one or not. Ts? boy bad bean examined before; the (J rand J ury had endorsed him as a competent witness, una could he have declined to offer the witness 'J* would gladly have done so, but he cunld not do so consistently with his seuse ol duty If the Court decided tbe witue?g was no' romp-, (eat no one would be more pleased than him self, (C.) It was, indeed, an unpleasant duty tojM?rtorm. Tbe boy was again closely questioned by the Judge, and his answers were so clear aud cor. rect tUat bis testimony was at once admitted under instructions, as above stated, to tn-? jury. Tbe boy testified that on one day h? wa* taken to Mrs. Se wall's house by bis tath?r ir, the atteraoon, who came for him in tbe evening and took witness home, and put him and his little sisf r in bed. J>oee not recollect wht*!) he saw his mother last, but it wa.~ the dav hit lather hit her. Ills father came home sici and went to bed, antf threw ap over the bed. And be came dowu stairs witb his bat and boots o:t, and his mother was at tbe tub washing the front room, and his father hit tbe mother ia tbe forehead w ith a hammer. Before be come do wa stairs Mrs. Tuell carried some tea ap stairs, and witness' father threw th? tea ia her tac?\ and pushed her down stairs, and then went down and hit her on the forehead and knocked her down. He (Tnell) then went in tbe kitchen and got an axe and strnck deceased twice in the head. He then drew the -harp part o! the axe across her neck, and theu pulled her oier the floor and pulled all thaclothes oil ol her, and then broke up the clock and th? oiber things in the house. Prisoner left wit ness's mo her laj on the floor till dark. Tu#l| hen went out and told witness to try to ge> his mother up stairs, and witness could not do it. Prisoner then tried to get witness's mottier up the front way and couTtf not, and then h put her on bis back. Tnell stood mother on her feet for a mo ment and then she fell and prisoner said she was agpner. Prisoner then carried deceased up siairs and put her in bed and told witness and bis little sister to get in bed witb ber. They did so. Mother did not speak: did not even make ber breath. Witness slept there till morning and then bis father came and woke bim up, and witness was about to pull the bed clotbes down and bis father told him not to Witness then drank some milk and went over to the colored woman's. Tbere was blood on the floor and ashes was sprinkled over it. There were spots of blood all tbe way up stairs. Saw a one horse wacon in tbe ba, k gate of lather's house. Was on my way to get Scotch snuff for Mrs. Sewall. This in the night. Saw two men aad thinks one was his father. One ot the men told htn to go away. The witness saw something come ont like a sheet witb something wrap ped inside. It looked like a stretcher 'hi' they carry dead soldiers on. Tbe boys witu witness said it was robbers stealing something and witness told the boys not to say anythmg about it. I?ater witness' father came to Mr.-. Sewal's and took him (witness* away home aud asked him where his mother was. Wit ness did not see his mother again till be saw her at the grave yard, and then lie (witnessi was taken to tbe station bouse.

He further said, when lather came in tbe front rrom mother said, "Are you better. Can," aud father knocked ber dowu with the hammer When he knocked her dowu with the ham wr she said. "Oh, Con, don't bit me.'1 The boy further corroborated, in a very cor rect manner, all he bad said at the examination in chief, and each time he made allueiou to 'he fact of the bitting lii# mother his *yes would tw> suff used with tears, and his whole appeaianc compelled all to sympathize with him. and strong, meu unused to weeping, could not con trol their feelings.
