MONROE EDWARDS, ! ff FOR POIlliEUY. 1 Court of Oyer uud Tcrralurr. 1 Before Judge Kent anj Aldermen Balis and lint field. Sr.coto D*r. i Wednesday, June tl. The avenues to the Court room were crowded long liefore the hour appointed to open the court, but the arrangement* mail* were such as to prevent any very greet coafusion. The ollicers attending on the court, particularly Relyea mid Colvin, nilurdiug every assistance toeuch perilous as had a right to entrance within the lair, end indeed bring " indrtatisahl t' in preserving order. At a lew minutes before lOo'clock, his honor Judge Kent entered, and at 10 o'clock the Aldermen having arrived,(the court wat opuued with the usual formalities. When the door was opened, the rush to obtain an entrance was so great as to nearly overthrow tho othcers in charge of the door, and after every seat was occupied there was still an immense crowd outside, who would htve got in if they could. Colonel Edwards entered in custody of officer Colvin at 10 o'clock, displaying the mm rkutancf so conspicuous ill hit deportment, and taking his seat at the foot of the table appropriated to hi* counsel, commenced reading a letter, displaying a smile on his countenance several times, us if it whs something that highly amused him. After waiting a few moment* till the wrival of the counsel on both sine*, His Honor said Gentlemen on either side, nine of the Jurors have requested that they may be allowed to proceed home for one hour in the custody of an officer, and if no objection is made by the counsel on either side, f shall grant their Qp- ! plication. 1 suppose there will tie no objection. Mr. Evants?We have no objection, sir. Hi* Honor then directed nine officers to be sworn to proceed each with n juror to their homes, and to return within an hour, and stated that arrangement* would be made to nllow the Jurors to go home earn day in the morning, so as not to interfere with the sitting of the Court. The officers were then sworn, and left the Court with the Jurors in their charge. During the time the Jurymen were absent, Mr. Marshall sat lor some timo beside Edwards, conversing and laughing in a Tory l'amilinr manner. Monroe Edwards also talked with all his counsel at different times, apparently as unconcerned us if there was not a particle of evidence to identify him with the John P. Caldwell who had presented the drafts and cheeks at Baltimore. Among the spectators were John Anihon, Aaron Vanderpoel, the Kindorhook Roarer, Col. Webb of the Regular Array, and many others, some of greater, and others of lessee note. By mistake, we stated vestorday that Joseph R. Hart was counsel for the aliurift'of thjia citv, whereas he came from Philadelphia, and George V. Aileu, whom we stated to be of Philadelphia, is ol tlus city. At a few minutes past rluvcn His Honor and tho Aldermen returned into Court, the names of tho Juiors were called over, und having all answered to their names, the District Attorney called:? Jons H. Mostaoi e, who was sworn.?1 reside in Richmond, Virginia-, 1 am n clerk in the Exchange Bank; have no personal acquaintance with John P. Caldwell; u person of that name presented a chock or draft to me w hidli 1 delivered to Argcnti; this is the paper. It was presented Jnd Sentcmbcr, by a person purporting to be John P.Caldwell; it was not then endorsed ; he came in and I was dfcengaged at the. moment, and the teller refused to pay the check without reference, as he did not know the pertoti ; he said it would be a great deal of trouble, and staid thefe till the cashier arrived and paid it, 1 s?w him endorsu it; it was presented in tiie morning.? 11c was n.t asked where he lived; 1 saw the person yesterday in Court; that is the person (pointiiq? out Edwards, w ho bent over and spoke to Evarts.) Tile amount of it is $131 76; I saw him endorse it. Croit-fj-amincd?By Emmett?I had never seen tho person who presented the check before that time; I saw hifai about-JO minutes afterwards in another bank; I saw hitn about twenty minutes the first time and five the second; 1 remarked nothing, but lie was a gentleman of very pleasing manner; hu was dressed in a frock coat and grdy mixed pantaloons and black bat, which he did not talie off; I am inclined to think his whiskers were of a lighter color than now, and not so large. They appeared to stop at the jaw ; cant say what sort of a stock he had on ; his whiskers were dark brown ; hit whiskers now are black. I should say; I have not seen any description of his person in the papers; there may have been one published snortly after the discovery, but" don't know I read it; 1 was called on by Mr. Argeuti some few days alter the discovery of the lorgofy at Richmond ; Mr. Argenti is a gentleman hi employment of Brown, Brothers & Co.; don't know of what country he is a native; believe he is a foreigner, bkt neverhcard; Mr. Argenti called at the Exchange Batik and inquired of all of us what we knew : I endeavored to descrilx' him as near as I could; 1 liad conversations with other persons through the city of of Richmond ; I was asked if tlia Bank lind any thing to do with it; 1 said that a cheek had lmen paid, and described the person ; never saw Mr. Lowndes before I caifie here ; never was asked to go to Philadelphia ; never w|s called on by Mr. Brown ; the prisoner was not pointed out to me yesterday ; he was sitting where he is to-day J1 had understood he had shaved otf his whiskers?(A laugh) ?that was in UlnhmonH nr*/i I U?*.l ?.??soi ...1.. very much bleached by confinement. The District Attorney here interrupted Mr. Kmmett. Mr. E.umett?'Will you allow me to examine the witness, if you please ? Examination returned?By being bleached, I mean he was of n florid complexion before; when I kutv him in Richmond, he wu* much the same fcs now. I call him now n man of florid complcxiop. I have lormed my opinion of his identity from hie general appearance ; don't undertake to describe anything particu larin his appearance, or shape, or manner, but his general appearance. I have seen him twice before ; 1 have never had any cause to identify any person once presenting,a check. I do not undertake to say I should recognise any person who carac to present a check, but 1 should any m^n who carried on stich a conversation, in such t manner is he did, for such a time. I dont remember how long it was liefore I was called upon about this business ; it w as before hi* arrest. District Attorney?If the Court plcese, that wiudotv blows directly upon my neck. I would rather be lockdd up in a cell fcr six mouths than bear that for six hours. ' Hit Honor directed it to be closed, and another openefl. Crott examined by Emmett continued?I gave the same information I have given you to aid in the pursuit : 1 told them he was a tine looking genteel man ; I doii't remember describing his whiskers ; I gave same information I ha; e you ; can't undertake to say particularly what I said ; I am sure 1 said he had a frock coat and was a geptcel fine loosing man; I may have told them morn. Direct by District Attorney?Mr. Argenti came to sie if the draft had been paid ; lie had an interview with tge Cashier before I saw him ; 1 think he said my description tallied with those given before. Emmett?We don't want to know what hesnid. Examination resumed?My inters iew may haro be On five minutes in duration witu Mr. Argenti. The secodd time I saw John T. Caldwell was at the Bauk of Virginia at the teller's desk. I think he showed a letter when tie check was refused to be paid, which induced the cashier to pay it. It is a rule o* the bank to require a reference from strangers presenting checks. It is usual for persons so treated to remonstrate. He did not offer to refer to h>* hold keeper. The Virginia Bank i t diagonally opposite the one I am employed in. lie had the same dress on. Did not sec him receive money. Robert H. Maury, tworn and examined?I reside In Richmond. Engaged in the lottery ard exchange buiiikies. The firm is Maury It Parscfl, and J. W Maury bi Co., the first conduct exchange business, the second lottery. John P. Caldwell called on us on the -id September, to get us to negociate some checks unon different hanks Our others are both in one building. He said the banki In Richmond would not cash them. The amount of the drafts presented was about $3,000. Mr. Parsell was out when he camai u, and I asked him to take a seat and wait, and when Mr. Parsell came in, he agreed to negotiate them, and drew a check on the hunk. lie said he was a planter in Louisiana, and had come to buy slave* to get in his crop, and unless he sent thcni early his crop would be injured. He said he had received somewhere about $13,000 from Brown, Brothers k Co., as advances on some cotton which was or^ had lawn shipped to their ac- I count. Did not say whare tn. Did not name nny particular date thr.t be had received themoncv, hut satdinstesd 1 of sending funds he could use, they had sent clu-cks, which he was under the necessity of getting cashed; did ' not say where he got the money, but I understood nt j Alexandria. ITe was sitting during the conversation with his hat off; the time. 1 think, was nearly an hour that he ,1 was with me; did not see him again nntifycsturrlay. 1 enrtio into Court, and li nking round, having been told he whs < outside.and going into that corner,the north west, I recognised him sitting there. That is thi man. He warne* pointed i out to me; the information I received was that hi was out^f i the room i the one hour spoken of w as the whole time c?i- ' nloyed cashing the check; can't undertake to describe I his "whiskers then; 1 saw he had whiskers; t recognise him from general appearance; suw him endorse the < checks, but could not swrar to the signature; < 1 was sitting down; did not hring the check 1 which wns drawn for them ; this is one of the I checks; 1 did not see him endorse it, but saw him writing, 1 and afterwards saw the hills endorsed: he was asked to I endorse them; 1 had not noticed whether they were ?jn- ' dorsad before. Crotn y.raminrH?By Emmet?'This happened on the ' $1 September, from comparing the entries, fin going to ' l;?nk I fciiind thesc checks put to our credit that day, nltd >iw; ??? |wn to the bank shortly alter we ro;< ived ! them.

I w as first applied to ' an this subject ui. the last ot September or first of October, by Mr. Parsoll my partner. I bad been up in the west #f Virginia, and lie w rote to inn that an agent of Messrs. Drown, Brothers k ( i , ha t called about the drafts of Jne. P. Caldwell, and asking m<- to describe him. I did so in a letter. 1 have since s.u-n that letter : I have not got it hcrt; ! it contained the suine orscriptiou 1 have given you?that | he was a genteel well Jr< >?cd man. I did not lurntieii Ins i whiskers or hidcomple vion in that hitter, lla.l no imprt* km about the appearance of liis whiskers when I wrote j that letter, otheru isu tlruii that he had whiskers. The ; uext application was made thia day two weeks through Mr. rlendeuniug and Mr. Lowndes. Mr. t'lendenning keeps the Washington Hotel at Richmond, and does not live ut Washington , lie said he was lequcstrd to applyby Mr. Lou te es w ho bad called at my oince, and I had gone home, lis had said to my Clerk, that if 1 could recognize Ml. Caldwell, he would lie glad ifl would come on to New Vorlt to aiteno the trial ; Mr. CU-ndennilig raid the same the next morning ; l)r. Brack in worth abo said ho thought it was my ilut;, ifl thought 1 could recognize the man, to come on; Mr. Lowndes had been talking to him about it. By Dutbici A iTorm:i? I saw the funds paid Caldwell, nnd think they were all of the Bunk of Virginia, in liunilieds?tha: is my impression. We hesitated taking the checks, and lie pulled out a letter, and a dd, " her? is a let- ' ter from Brown. Bioheia k Co., which enclosed thu | checks." I did nut read the letter I think the checks hsd j been otfered previously to my seeing the letter.

We have had dealings with the Custom House and they never returned the bags without thev were marked. I marked them all. The lings generally returned to us if not sant out of the city.

Put your question, Mr. Marshall. Witness.?1 did not reeoUect tho No. 13 was on the bag. 1 have examined the bags at home, so that I might compare them with tile one (expected to see here. I did not count them; I don't know whether all the bags arc there now that were when this man called; I hud no doubts of my capacity to identity this bag. 1 went to examine the other bags to show it to Mr. Ilrown, not to enable me to identify it. tThis contradicts the evidence given butamoment before by the witness.] I have been with Johnson and Lee about eighteen months! 1 do not recollect getting a new supply of bugs, I don t know that all the hags are there now; I don't know that the legs wore mark.yl before I went. They may have been murked before, hut 1 think not. They were not marked ut all that | know of; that hag was not marked before 1 marked it; I marked the hags because we wanted them to be brought back. They were not new bag*. Thoy may have been there when I went, but 1 don't know. I don't think any new bags have been got since 1 went there, and I dont know that any have been lost. They were marked and numbered, so that 1 might know them again. No one told me to mark the bags. They were undftr my care, and I marked and numbered them to prevent them being lost; but I never took particular notice whether any were lost or list, The number never decreased much.? I never counted them. Looked at them in a lump. They were received by whoever was there, and thrown umoag the others. I dont know that there arc half a d07.cn or a dozen lings lost.; don't know whether the bags are numbered or not; dont think 1 have numbered any since this was marked, but cun't say positively; 1 first mentioned the circumstance of the bug last fall; 1 think to Mr. Lowndes, before the trial at Philadelphia; Mr. Brown has nut suoken about it until lately; Caldwell put the gold into the hag himself; I gave htm the bag be counted the gold in tho room: the draft was endorsed; I saw him put the gold in the bag; 1 brought the bag; I did not examine the mark of the bag; I gave it to Caldwell; I can t say whether it had any mark on it or not; I know the bag* were generally marked J Ic LEE, but there might be some which were not marked, and / did not notice whether the hag J gave Caldwell wae marked at all or not. I did not know till this morning that this bag had that mark. The District Attoeret objected here to the courae of thu examination. Mr. Marshall said he threw himself on the Court, and thought lie should refute what the witness said wheu he doubled on him. Jciiiii. Kr\r?I have not noticed that the witness has doubled on you. The whole Held of enquiry is open to you, Mr. Marshall, to arrive at the truth. Witness?I did not know how that was marked till I saw it this morning; I rceollect marking it; I can tell by the marking it is my doing. Bv a Jc una?1 know now that is tlia bag 1 gave to Caldwell; I did not know before. By the District Attorney?I know I gave a bag of Johnstone Sc. Letts to him, and have described it by saying that it would have the mark of Johnstone &. Lee. I don't know that this is the identical bag that I gave Caldwell, hut it is one of Johnston St Lee's; 1 recollect Mr. Caldwell's person, and kn?w him when I first saw him ; don't remember when the bugs were brought in ; to secure their return from the Custom House, I marked and numbered them from one upward* consecutively ; I first learned of the hag in the Court in I'hiladelphia, Thu Court adjourned for one hour.
