Then was, however, a very remarkable difference ia the description of the spectators, the majority being of the higher classes, and not ol the "common rttfihle," a* the unfledged lawyers teem the laboring and industrious classes. At twenty minutes past ten o'clock the hero of tha scene, Colonel Monroe Edwards, entered, as blooming and as Iresh in appearsuce as it just turned out of a hand bos.? He was dressed In precise] the same manner as yesterday, nnJ seemed just us unconcerned, exhibiting the greatest nonchnlunee ir-:aginnhl?. Among the spectators we no(iced Mr. Brown, of the firm of Alexr. Brown jx Co., of Baltimore and England, and several of the leading bankers and financiers of Baltimore and Philadelphia, bosiJes tha most noted of this city. In n ldi'ion. there wore all the most celebrated lawyers present, including the venerable ex-chancellor Kent and Joshua Spencer, and a number of per?ous, who came merely out of curiositv to see the reli brated Counsel engaged on behalf of Monroe Edward*. There were a pre at many inquiries made to ]>oin! but Mr. Marshall, who has attained such threat notoriety through his exertions in the Temperance cnnsc. At twenty minutes to eleven o'clock the Counsel for the defence entered and took their seats opposite tho bench. Iu addition to Ogden Hot! man. there are engaged to assist tho District Attorney, Joseph R. Hart, standing counsel for the shotitf, Oliver M. Lowndes, agent to all the hanks, and G. F. Allen, of Philadelphia. At a quarter to eleven Judge Kent and the two Alder men entered, arid the Court was opened. The Judge then announced that for the information of the Bar 110 civil causes would be tried this term, nod non-enumerated motions would he adjourned until Saturday. Hi* Honor then called on thpease of the People against Monroe Elwards, to which the District Attorney replied " we are ready Sir."

It informed them that their friend, John P. Caldwell, of ^Virginia, was in want of lund?. thot lie had in their hands rather moro *ian one thousand baler of cotton, worth dt least fifty thousand dollars, tliut any advance predicated oa such cotton would be perfectly safe, and requesting that it it would suit their convenience they had authorized him to draw ou them tor not more than thirty th usand dollars, mi not more than thirty days sight. ThU letter was worded in the Usual style, and written in the usual style of commercial corres|>on(lt!uce. This was, however but the harbinger of whntwns to come, find nn the 27tli I August,Brown,Brothers b. Co. received a letter purporting l? l?.o, ll.o nnnairlifW In ?i 1 written In John P. Caldwell, and dated the 34th August. This refers to the letter purporting to be signed by Mtiinroll,White i. to. and sat s that the writer finds it necessary from the state of affairs !u the south, to raise from twenty , five to thirty thousand dollars, and requesting that they would advance it and negociate the hills of exchanges. Enclosed in this letter w e\ e two hills oT exchange for thirteen thousand dollars each, oild ct. thirty and the other at !' sixty days sight, drawn on Maunsell, White h Co.. nud it also endured n letter to Maunsell, White It Co., request- | ing them to hold the cotton referred to, at the orders of J Brown, Brothers !t Co. This nllair was nil conducted and appeared to lie in the usual cotlrSc. On the 38th August Brown,Brolhei < k Co. wrote to Maunfel, While k Co. enclosing thn hills ofexchnngc and the order for the cotton, ?ud they bought Vii giuia and Baltimoru funds, und on the | 28th August they alio wrote to John P. Caldw ell, and en- i closed checks on Bank* in Baltimore, and Richmond in i Virginia, which they addressed to Joho P. ( aidwell, Alexandria, Delaware county. The iimodnt of Vir- j ginia nnd Baltimore funds tliu* transmitted, agreeably to a desire expressed in the letter from John P. Caldwoll, ; that they should be in Virginia funds, or if that w as uot convenient in Baltimore funds, was fdd.llfl/.t. These transactions are now nlxiut to tie closed and j otl may j jacge of the surprise of Brow n, Brother* It Co.?I should ' however have mentioned that 011 the 4t*1 of September { they received n letter from John P. Caldw ell acknowledging u receipt of these funds. Yon may, however, judge of their surprise when on the 8th of September Utnwu, Brothers kCo. received a letter from Maunsell, White Si Cd,returning the bills which had bee protested, nnd the order , lor the cotton, which was of no use, and stating that they t did not know John P. Caldwell, and never had any rottoh belonging 'o such n person, find tlift Drown, Broth.-r* and J Co. must have been defrauded. Immediately on the re- ; ceirtjvI tJi .w letter, steps wete taken to slew,'1 ' *' ' .lie CneckA, If ,, .j, ay well conceive they w ere too late. Oh arriving n' Baltimore, they found all the checks payable there hnd been presented on the 31st August, and proceeding to Kir hmonu, those payable there I hud been paid on the id September. It now seemed til- k most impossible to trace the person who had defrauded I those gentlemen, and you may conceive their surprise w u* I increased very much, when one ofthcdriteighbor* showed I ..leill ? CI UUwIIIi UUJUIVSie COpiC* Ul llll! II'HITS IBI'V IIH'1 recdved, anil that n like cum ol twenty -five thousanddollars had likewise been obtained fiom th< m by tbe like fraud. For a long time it teemed impossible to trace the perpetrators of these Iraudt, and it sat feared that they wen; about to escape triumphantly with their ill-gotten gains. These transactions nstoitndeJth'-commercial world. The ability with w hieh these frauds had been conceived and executed, threw distrust ever commercial transactions. '1 he uncertainty of commercial o|>eration?, at all times hazardous enough, was made still more so. and persons were afraid to lollow out tho business which they had pursued <dr tears. There i", however, gentlemen, a Providence which guards us, and though Ju*tlce mar sleep for a while, and guilt may seem to l>? triumphant, yet it is hut sleep, ami is sure to overtake the violators of the laws sooner or Inter, and the criminal in this case found that the causa ol his triumph was tho very cause of his detection, and will lend, I trust, to his removal from that class of society, of which lie is one of the greatest tatts that ever lived. Gentlemen, we shall produce evidence to show you the receipt of these forged letters, the purchase and , remittance of thest funds?we shall show you that the naltitnorefunds, which were collected on the 81st August, were collected by a person who w rote John P. Caldwell on all the checks w hich he collected ; and, also, that the Richmond funds, collected on the 3d September, were collectcd by a person who wrote John P. Caldwell on the checks, and we shall biing witnesses to prove that the person who collected these checks, and u ho signed John P. Caldwell was Monroe E twards, the prisoner at the bar ; and, furthermore, that funds were found in his possession, the proeeeds of these, frauds, and about the amount; nnd having produced this evidence wo think the case for the prosecution will have been suiticientlv established; and one would think that in the fare ol such evidence they would linrdly uttonipt to set up nnv defence at all. But, gentlemen, the boldness displayed, and the care exercised in the committal of these monstrous frauds, and which shine so conspicuous, forbid us to think ! ?o. We see the prisoner comes here surrounded byable nnd intelligent counsel, who have come from j the halls of legislature to prevent, if possible, the conviction of this man. Such witnesses as will he produced for the prosecution w ill have to pass through a severe ordeal, to which we cheerfully submit them, and if the evidence it not sufficient for his conviction or this crime, wa ask you to let him go free; but I ask you likewise to put the evidence which w ill be produced for the Jefcnce to a like ordeal?and it will neon the most rigortins scrutiny of this t iourt ami Jury. I will not, however, undertake to anticipate the defence, indeed we are not rert&ln what it will bp, the truth, however, is simple, and It Is one, while falsehood shows itself in a thousand forms. " Counsel have been brought from till nan* of the conntry, J to defend him, nnd his defence may be safely left to their 11 linnds. If, however, we establish what w e think we can I it w ill require more ingenuity than I think even his cotin- 1 ' 1 ixhs-'si. to free, him and let him loose again, to nrev on n he community.
