Th_? Court laid that one of the jurors had complained (Charles Delaran did so) of remark* bring made in their hearing ; and observed that it the audience on the seat* next to the jury did not refrain from making such remarks, the Court would order thone seats to be cleared and kept so ; it wac their wish that the public thould be able o near, but th-y must observe perfect order. Before proceeding with their witne**e*,the counsel for the defence asked the District Attorney if he meant to pre** that point of the enquiry any further in relation to the pistol ball having caused death. The District Attorney said it was an unusual question ; but he would *ay that he did not mean to press in any new tin ienc to show that the death was caused by a pistol ball ; at the same time, he would not withdraw the evidence he had already fiveu on that point. He also intended to introduce <r. Ellis (who sold the fire arms to Mr. De La Forest, and who saw the experiments on board the Belle Ponle, and loaded the pistols for the Prince) a* a witness, to state how the pistols were loaded. While he was speaking Mr Seldon said he would withdraw the question. Nathan G Bukoess, examined.?Has known John <3.

I can't state positively at to the evening; he was frequently aut with a gentleman named Moore; I generally went to bed soon, and don't remember that evening. Don't remember any one evening when I'm able to fix that he was out later than usual. 1 recollect one one evening he returned to his room when 1 was in bed and thought it was Iste.

He blew out the candle and came immediately to bed, ulmo-t immediately after I awoke. It is very likely that I did apeak to him then; 1 cant remember whether I did or no; 1 generally spoke t? him, and it's quite likely I did. About a minute or two p?rbaps elapsed between my awaking and his blowing out the light. I cannot tell what he was doing; he might hare been fixing his clothes; he did'nt go out of the room; I turned orer inthe bed,and he then blew out the light, and came to bed. He generally put his clothes on the chair bel'ors he came to bed ? the chair was at the foot of the bed; that was always the chair's place : the room was so small that it eould'nt be put any wbere elic : I went soon to sleep again, and sl>-pt soundly till morning : when I woke Mr. Colt was going out : the sun rises so early in summer, that the sun might have been up, and by reason ot olinds in my room, the sun might have been up and 1 not seen it: he generally rose at the first brrakfast bell : they breakfasted at seven o'clock : sometimes the second be'l would ring immediately after the first : the second bell was rung regularly at seven o'clock : don't recollect how long after he weut out that the first bell rung ; he did not return to breakfast: 1 saw nothing in hie hand at the time he went : if he had had anything in,his hand I think 1 must have seen it.

Whitixo?Was he dressed 1 Wit.xess?(agitated)?Do you expect a gentleman would go into the street without being dressed! he was fully dressed: I think he had on the same clothes that he had worn the day before. Sometimes he wore light trowseis, and some imes dark ones: 1 think he had light ones on that morning, of a pearl color, or something like that: can't remember if he wore the same both days: he had two changes ot coats, and three of the pantaloons: one pair of pantaloons were of cloth?black?the other two were something ofapearl?both coats were black: one was a dress eoat or frock coat : the other was a body coat: don't remember which coat he had on that morning or the day before.

I went to the trunk that morning; but put nothing in it that I know of, nor took any thing out of it. Do not remember if he changed hi* linen that morning The ladies in the honse bad company that night?they never had company after 11 or i past II at night, and next morning they said that Mr. Colt came home a few minntes after 11 o'clock that night. I knew how late he was out the night preceding this?by looking at the clock; on the Saturday morning the young ladies told me, Mr. Colt came home n few minutes past 11 the night before. Miss Ann Kelso told me?Mr. David Kelso told roe so. As Mr. Adams was missing on Friday, Mr Colt was also absent one evening till 11 o'clock, eigh' or ten day* before that time. I kaew it was late on Friday night. On that Saturday, the 18th, he slept till lifter dinner ; after Mr. Colt told me he was*unwell, and didn't wish to con verse, 1 took my sewing, and he xeent to tlrrp- Don't remember what clothe* he wore on the Friday. As he came in on Saturday 1 met him in the lower hal ; he was shutting the front door: he passed up stairs: ( went down into the kitchen, sat a couple of minutes, then went np to our room and found Mr- Colt andressiag: he had taken oil" more than his coat: it was after he got In bed he told me he was unwell, and did'nt wish to converse. When I first went into the room 1 thought he was going to change his dress: seeing that, 1 took a seat, leaving him to undress himself: while he was changing his shirt, and pntting on his night shirt, I was sitting on a chair, looking nut of the window : I continued looking out of the window for is minutes after he got into bed. His night shut hud one button : the biuding was tight: Mr Colt gcncially pinned it: I made his linen: hi* liueu shirts were generally marked : 1 marked them: and his night shirts 1 think were. After I left the window, I went to th# bed to him: I saw bis clothing there: his clothes were on the chair arm: his shirt was the lastgarment he hid placed there: 1 did not Uok at it particularly: he generally thi ew his shirt over so that the bosom wouldn't get tumbled: the bosom then was uppermost: it was clean, and not soiled: if there had been any marks or spots on it, I think I should have seen them : when be got up again, he put that shirt on: I think 1 should have <(nerved the spots on it: 1 did not see any on it: I can t say what side of the neck the black marks were that I raw on Saturday morning: h? laid with his fate towards the wall on Market (tree:: lie laid on the front of the bed: the honse is on the sov.i'n side of Munroe st, the window towards MirKi t st, a square win Jow: 1 was leaning over ntm as he lay in bed: 1 saw hiH face : his eyes open : ho lay on bit right side?the ntaik was a black and blue mark, on the neck, over the jugular vein : it was a round mark, flies a i *(i nf a sivnnnr?< it* I cu tr it 1 linirnn mn. versing with bim ubaut ii: ho put his hand out of the had and pushed me away, saying he was unwell.

He genrrally changed his linen three or four times : i think he changed his linen that Saturday morning: his linen appeared clean on the back of th>- chair: 1 did not seethe hirt he took off on Friday night, if he did change it. He was dressed, and going out at the door when I awoke: he came back into the room, and said he mightn't be back to breakfast, but was going to the boat. I might have seen the shirt he took off that^Friday night and washed it, and not know it. He general y put his duty -hirts in the clothes-bag under the bed. I never -aw a shirt of his that was spotted or marked ?:h ink, ?r anything else. 1 put my washing ofl that week irnni Monday to Wednesday, because I was unwell.

By Selde!)?That shirt that had the wristbands washed, I thought the hoaom alio had been washrd On the week he was arrested, he did not appear at ail like he used to be ; he used to be very lively and go into the parlor wi h the company ; but that week could not get him to go in or talk to the company, or tome. He was very kind and very mild, and always treated me kindly ; don't recollect 1 ever saw nim in a passion la my life. Whitiho.?Are you a mother! Witness?Yes sir. WniTino?By Mr Colt. W itness?Yes, sir. By Whiting.?My brother did not know I was?he did not call on tne at all while I lived with Mr. Colt. 1 think I am acquainted with Mr Colt's disposition. 1 never gave a reason to anyone why I did nt leave him and go back to Philadelphia. By Selden.?Mr Colt taught me to write; I have my copies by me now ; and gave me instructions in a great many other things. That was whilst I was living with him as his wife. By a Juror.?Mr. Colt never mentioned to me anv thing about a watch By C Dklavan.?I did not know of his having a gold watch. My Whitino ?Didn't know it was in that trunk I when the Justice took it away. Didn't know Mr. Adams, as he1 never been at our house. Mrs Sarah Haff examined?Knows Caroline Henshaw and John C. Colt. They lived at our house ; came there last of February last, or first of March?lived there 'till middle of May. During that time, Mr. Colt was always very mild and very pleasant; always the same?always even tempered. He always behaved very much of a gentleman in all his manners and in his conversation, and always treated every one as such. Caroline Henshaw always behaved reraarkabls lady-like. Stopped by Whitiiso. Biloes said that he could show that although Colt and her were n?t married, still that the marriage was solemnly intended, and that Colt always meant to marry her, and that the marriage was only postponed on account ofColt's pt-cuniai y embarrassments. And that, except in living with Colt without being married, Mrs. Ilcnshaw's conduct was pure, exemplary and worthy of praise, instead of blame, except in living with Colt in an illeg-'timate connexion. WtiiTittc said he would not deny tbat Miss Henshaw, while living at Mrs. HafT's, and at 42 Monroe street, conducted herself in every respect as a virtuous and modest woman would, llut if evidence was allowed to sustain M rs. Hensbaw's character, then the law would throw a greater shield around those living in illicit intercourse, than around] those living in the married state; because no man would be allowed to introduce his wife eithsras evidence for or against him ; but a man living in illicit intercourse with a w< m.ui, may bring up the female to teslify in his favor; but then the testifies always, and her testimony is received under the disadvantage that is inseoarable from the illegitimate connection she has formed and is keeping up with that individual. The court ruled out the question. Justice Tavlor recalled and era mined?Miss Henshaw's description of the room, Arc at -12 Muuroe street, is correct in every particular! quite as good a one as I could have given myself: L found some viala and bottles there. Mr, Charles Wells recalled?I thought Mr. Co|t very patient and mild in his conduct : he always behaved very gentlemanly in his conduct, although he was greatly disappointed and vexed. 1 heard the Rev. Mr Blake say since Colt's arrest that he had either beard or knew that wheu Adam's hud money due to him he was very troublesome and difficult to deal with. Crost-txaminetl.?I once tried a Colt's pistol with out powder, but it only threw the ball about ten feet, and made an indentation about a quarter of the way in a deal board,aud rebounded back. Cyrus Eastable txaminxl ?Is a printer: knew Samuel Adams: I thought he was a very irritable man in business : bare seen him exhibit signs of anger and passion. Crois-rxanuned.?He once gave me a bad bill. 1 could not pass it: I returned it to him: he got very angry: saul 1 mini ge / riil of it in tome wuy he had been in the habit of paying off in the same bills: he wouldn't change it: he was very unjust towards the men, not paying them promptly: was always in the habit of paying tbem in bad money: la^ain tried to pass that bill, and couldn't: took it back to him: he got into a violent passion, aud refused to take it back: said I must pass it in someway: at last he snatched it from my hand with an oath, and gave me another: 1 made no harsh remark to hini: 1 had my feelings so hurt, and disgusted with his unjust conduct, that I left his employ: lie was in the habit o' getting very angry, aud using insult- j ing language to his men, and was very much in the habit of contradicting men in what they said, and frequentiy used language unbecoming a gentleman: UCVer thought he had wit cueiigb to be very sarcastic Francis J. Riplei namintd Is a stereotype founder: knew Adams: from my intercourse with him and his conversations 1 considered him very irritable, and an ill tempered man to deal with : that is the impression on my mind from what he said Cro?*-txaminnl.?There was nothing in the business between us to warrant his becoming irri tableDavid D. Wheeler examinnl ? l saw Adams once in relation to some business put into my hands. He exhibited then temper Scatchard & Adams 1 dene some printing for a client of mine; they had 1 some stereotype plates of his; he applied for them and could not get them. I wrote them a letter to call on me; Adams called on me; I told him we had a lien on the property he was printing for my i client, but no lien on the stereotype plates; and < that bylaw he could not hold the plates. Adams < replied " Imw or no law?ht iro'ild kcejt the plait*.'' 1 f attempted to reason with him on ihe subject ; ' but it was no use; he then said "I'm not going to be cheated out of the bill."

Colt from a boy. lie was the most industrious man ! ever knew; was always studious and always at his hooks; his temper was always rctuaikah'y mild and good; never saw htm angty in my life. I'm a practising attorney. We have several claims in our office against Samuel Adams, whieh are unpaid to this day. Colt graduated with honor at either Montpelier or Middlebury College, Vermont. I went to 42 Monroe street with Justice Taylor; we found there a claret bottle with spirits in it; Miss iienshaw wanted it taken lo John Colt, because she said he had been taken very badly with the rheumatism. Gbo Cary tramined?I knew Colt in Philadelphia July, 1840. He kept a book store corner of Fifth and Minor streets. I've often been to his room in Murray street and at the granite buildings: was intimate wiih him. He boarded in same house that I did. His temper was always mild aud amiable. I generally called on him at Chambers street, between 3 and 4 o'clock. I saw a table there, two or three chairs, a packing box and one or two mums : wa* in more rive or six nines, ^nnetiinei he was reading, sometime* wriiing. 1 saw a piece of a looking glass thorc against the wall. I nv him the day he moved in, there, went into bia room: he anried the cord from a trunk: took out a towel and washed his hand*. 1 afterward* *aw a batehct there, and 1 u*ed it, to cut olfthe heel of my boot.

It waa more like calico than broad cloth: it waa rather a dirty color: more like a ahiit than any thing: not that color: it was muck larger than a sheet: came up nearer at least six inches from the lloor than two inches: never was witness at any mock trial. Dr. Barrkh tj aminnl ? Is a '.caeher of elocution: knew Samuel Adams well: hie temper waa not very good, in 1340, Adams did some work for a gentleman who wa* then in partuerahip with me: Mr. Adams called at ray house for the money, which I refused to pay except my portion of it. | once found him at my house: he said he'd been there three hours, and should do so till the dabt was paid: he remained there a quarter of an hour afterwards: be showed a great want of temper while there. Cross Examined-?He waa sitting there when I waa in the room, and had positively come in ?insisted on coming into the room, although Mrs Barber told him he could not come into the room ; he said be believed it was my intention to swindle him ont of it. He had frequently ma le nae of the same irri Uting language. Cro*? Krtimiiud?With one exception, no one else has nsed the same. Marot Fr vsek tntmtrud ?Has examined the two rooms?Colt's and Wheeler's rooms.

Mr. Wells told him he thought there was tome misunderstanding shout it, as Colt expected the proceeds Adams thsn Ivl't, in a vexed mood, and said he would go and see al>out it. This wasior 3 o'clock. Well* says Adams has gone tln-ie and consulted Colt, without doubt. I made this memorandum to satisfy myself in my own mind, from knowing all the t aities. Crvftjamined ?I told Well* what my object wa* in writing this down: he did not use the w ord * disappointed" or " surprised," but " vexed mood." 1 am confident that I wrote down all he ?aid: I'na positive he didn't say that Adam's said "I'll ro and see." 1 told Wells nay object, sat down and wrote ia pencil jwst as be said: was at Colt's room in August: one box was half the size of the one shown in court, the other was about the size ofthebox brixisrht into court. By Ski.dsnHare been in the nubiishing busineas: acquainted with stereotype plates: the nlates for Colt's book-keeping cost $'491 i?0: it would not vary from this sum: a set of stereotype blocks for Colt's book-keeping would cost about $20: the printers generally find the blocks : these blocks will only answer ter plates of the same size: I think there were 750 copies of one size of the book keeping printed, and 5<W of the other. Sklbxh-?If your Honors pleas*, we've exhausted all our testimony that we purposed introducing at this stage of the proceedings. Mr Jaun W.
