('has Wilkes, Contini ed. The Court met at 10 o'clock precisely?all the members present. The Record ol yesterday was read by the Judge Advocate. Mr. Hamilton stated that yesterday there was some misapprehension on the |wrt of Lt. Pinkney in relation to the date of a letter, a copy of which, dated December 13, 1839, was read yesterday, and Lt. Pinkney swore he was under the impression that the original was dated either the tilh or 7th of December, and certainly before the I2ih Lt. Wilkes now produced the original letter sent by Lt. Pinkney, which was dated "December 13th, 1839 " and consequently the copy read yesterday was correct, except a transposition in the last paragraph. Lt. Pinkney admitted that the letter produced Wflfl thf nrit/m.i! hi/ him in I f Willraa anri rh.. date was correct. At the same time Ire contended that tire letter of the 27th December, ottered yesterday by Lt. Wilkes as an answer to iliat of the 13th, was not an answer to that letle.r as it referred to events that took place on the 15th of I)ecember subsequent to the date of his letter, lie also said he never received a written reply to his letter of th? 13th from Lt. Wilkes. Dr. Palmer recalled by the Juc'ge Advocate. Jt'diie Advocate?State whether you did not state to 1.1 Hudson that Lt. Pinkney's health was suffering trom long confinement, and whether Lt. Hudson did not inform you that Lt. Pinkney was confined by order of Lt. Wilkes. A?I did represent to Lt. Hudson that Lt. Pinkney'b health was suffering lroni confinement, and Lt. Hudson gave me unequivocally to understand that Lieut Pinkney was under confinement by order The President said that the witness could not go on and state this conversation,as it was mere hearsay evidence that an order existed; he could prove there was an order to this effect only by having seen t he order himself. Com. Jones said that Lt. Pinkney had sworn that lie was conlined on board the Peacock by an order from Lt. Wilkes to Lt. Hudson, and that Lt. Hudson hud sworn he had received no such orders for his confinement, and he thought Lt. Pinkney shoe d he allowed to show that he had been informed I. 1 Hudson, or that others had so been informed by hint, that such an order existed for his confinement, .... lj c: : l- j *?a wmcinior II v\ UUIU II U IS If MUllOIiy I1UU been impeached. The Court wascleared to decide on the admissibility of the testimony, and when the doors were re-o|>ened after a lapse of fifteen minutes, the Judge Advocate stated the Court had decided that the answer of Dr. Palmer to his question was not testimony, and he therefore directed the witness to retire The Judge Advocate read the articles of enlistment of Samuel Pensyl, bearing date Oct. 14,1836 ; Philip llabb, >ov. 15, 1836; Oeorge Smith, Nov 16, 1836 ; and Samuel Dinsmau, Nov 21, 1836 ; by which they voluntarily enlist in the U. S. Marine corps for four years from the date of their respective articles. The Judge Advoc ate said he now proposed to take up the first specification of the sixth charge, entitled " scandalous conduct, tending to the destruction ol good morals," which charges that " Lt Wilkes in his report No. 63 to the Secretary of the Navy, dated March 11, 1840, did utter a deliberate and wilful falsehood, in the following words, to wit: ' on the morning of the 19th of January, we saw; land to the southward and eastward, witu many indications of being in its vicinity, such as penguins, seal, und the discoloration of the water ; but the impenetrable barrier of ice prevented our nearei approach to it;' the said Lieut. Charles Wilkes well knowing that land to the southward and eastward was not seen on said morning, as asserted by him " The Ji dok Advocate said that with the permission of the court, lie would state what he expected to prove in relation to this specification, carefully abstaining from entering into argument on the merits of the case. He then proceeded as follows :? " First, 1 will show the relative positions of th?Vincennes and Peacock on the 19th January, 1840 " Srcoiul, I will endeavor to show, that land ui/t not teen at all on board the Fificcnnr* on that day! That an officer reported an appearance of land, but that the report was treated with such neglect that it was almost immediately forgotten; that thisclai/u ofditcoverij on the l9//i was not set uv until the return of the Viiu ennrs to Sydney, u-hrre Lt. IVMeet found that the discovery won claimed by another tuition. " Third, That the commander of I lie Peacock expressed his conviction on the tpot, that what had appeared to them to be land, turned out to be ice, saying to an officer,' Our land hat turned out to be ice: mat p.e mane tne omcer or tiie watcti erase in the remarks on the lag the appearance of land, and instructed him to state that it turned out to be an iceberg. ' Fourth, That the Vincennes and the Porpoise met in the Antarctic on the 26th of January ; that the comniandere had a conversation, Htid that Lt IVilkes iniil nothing of the discovery of land on the 19fA that Lt. Wilkes, afterwards at New Zealand, and after he knew that the French claimed the discovery on the afternoon of the 19th, stated to this Hame officer that he had made the discovery on the morning of the 19th, and that this officer expressed his surprise thai he had not mentioned so important a matter to him when tlrny met in the Antarctic on the 26th. Fifth?That Lieutenant Hudson stated to an officer of the squadron that all the credit of the discovery of land on the 19th, was due to the Peacock after all, as the Vincennes had not seen it until the 28th. Isistly?That land rvas actually discovered by two officers of the Peacock on the loth of January, and that their report was treated with utter neglect. " If all these points are established by the testimony T shall introduce, it is for the court to determine whether the specification is sustained." The Judge Advocate took his seat, arranged his papers, and prepared for the examination of the witnesses*, with the air of one who was determined to use every effort ft) elicit the whole truth, if possible, on this most important specification. Lt., recalled by the Judge Advocate. Jvdof. Advocate.?State who was the officer of the dick of the Vincennes on the morning of the 19th January, 18-10, from 8 to 12 o'clock, meiidian. A.?Lt. Case. Jt'dok Advocate.?State what you know of the first specification of the sixth charge. A?I never heard of a discovery of land that day, uordid ! heaniny claim set up tin'ii the arrival of ihe vei-sel at Sydney. When we anchored at Sydney we heard that the French had discovered iand on the afternoon of the 19th. Lieut. Wilkes was then on shore. When he returned on board, I received him at the gangway, and remarked to him that "the French were ahead of us." " Oh no," said he, " don't you recollect reporting to me appcaraaces of land on the morning of the 19th 1 I told him "1 couldn't recall if to my mind then," and 1 ref-c.1 f to the log, which convinced me at once, froi 1 fact thet I had the morning watch, it being Su, *, ann omrr cirrumBiancrs, mm i nau cuifa hip aiiention to something that looked like land on that morning It was quite foggy during the morning watch A little after 8 o'clock, I heard the surf or an iceberg in close proximity. 1 sent word to Lt. Wilkes I ihnt such wasthe case. He came on deck, and the fog had then lifted a little, so that we could see the ice. and it was tolerably clear. He looked round ana said something about managing the ship. I was at the time looking towards the southward Aa he was about going below, I said to htm "there is something there," pointing to to the southward, " looks like land " He made no reply, and eeemvd to treat the report with neglect, and went below. jrnoe Advocate ? State the circumstances under which these two charts were made, and by whom [Here the witness was shown what purported to be two charts of the " Antarctic Continent discovered by the U.S. Exploring Expedition, IR40."| A.?I made them both, except putting on the land and the printing. Jrnog Advocate.?You say they were both made bv you, except the labelling and topography? A ?Yes, sir, the labelling was put on byCapt. Wilkes, and |>art of it by Mr. May. Ii thjc Advocate.?State when they were made A?They were both commenced before our arrival at Sydney, and the big one was finished at Sydney. Q?When was the small one finished? A. ?At the Hay of Islands, New Zealand. <4-?Who is the tonography by? A.?The topography on ooth the charts was put tn(tn peneil by Lieut. Wilkes. The charts were then examined by the members of the Court, and the Judge Advocate remarked that the land on the large chart extended further to the eastward than on the smaller one This was detiied by Lieut Wilkes. Q ?You Ray you called the attention of Lieut Wilkes to indie itions ot land to the southward n tne morning of the 19th, as he was going beiow; do you believe it was land? A.?From the evidence I had, I don't believe it was. Questioned by Cot rt?Did you believe it at the time you reported it? A?No sir, I did not. If I had had any confideece in it, I should have noted it in the log I LD. Prte* Two OaaU. U. - .?1 -. 111 l_*. " ! ? Q - -Was that a^t-aiance afterward verified! A ?We were very certain we diaoovered land on the 28th, in the inorninf watch; we were then a long aw ay to the westward of our position on tha 17tn, about 400 miles, and were dnven off from it. I wua officer of the deck at the time of the discovery. Q ?How tar is the land laid down on this large chart from your position of the 19th! A.?About forty-eight miles. Q.?How lur on ib it laid down in the small ohartt A.?About the same. Q ?Could laud in that latitude be seen with any certainty at that distance! A.?On that occasion 1 do not think it could. Questioned by the Court.?Cannot you see land in high latitudes ihut far!.A ?Yet. vtuesuoneu Dy ^ot.rt -An you not confident now that the appenramss you s,oke of on the morning of the 19th, was in fact land!

A.?Not more than cruising vessels are generally. On the morning ol the 2ftth Lieut. Underwood and several others thought they saw land ofr there? (pointing to the chart)?hut I was sceptical up to that lime of the existence of land in those regions. On that day Lieut. Underwood went aloft, and cams down again and said he was postage he saw land to the southward and eastward. We were then about two hundred miles to the westward of our position of the 19th. <1-?Was any attempt made to get nearer to what appeared to be .'and, or take aoundings on lbs morning of the 19th, after you reported to Lieut. Wilkes ! A ? No, sir; on the contrary. I bad ordera to gat the ship off. In the evening 1 think we wars mors to the southward and westward than we were in the morning.

Q.?Was the atmosphere clearer on ths 21th aad 29th than on the morning of the 10th 1 A.?The 25th was a delightful day, clearsr than a bell. On the 28th I discovered land while in ths act of reefing topsails. I called Lieutenant WUkea^ attention to it. lie looked at it some time, aud aald, tnere is no nuMake about it, {not it land." Before I finished reefing topsails we bad to wear ship in a heavy gale of wind, with a aevere anow storm. I have entered here in the log, " at 0 40 wa discoveied land, or that which had the most decided appearance of high land, covered with snow " Question by Count? What was the difierenc* between the relative positions of the vessel and land on the 28th and on the lWih, as laid down on tha chart 4 A.?On the 28th when we discovered land, it waa 12 miles oil; on the 19th it is laid down on the chart 48 miles off. The 28th was generally conceded on board to be the day when we first discovered land. Question by Court.?You say the Peacock was seen eighteen miles off on thel9th, could you sea her hull from the deck, of the Vincennesl A.?i did not say I saw her 18 miles off. I said it was so laid down on the chart. Q.?Did you see the Peacock at noon on the 10thl A ?I saw her during the day, but do not recollect w hat time. I saw her in the evening four or fiva miles off. Q ?Have you or have you not now anv doubt that what you saw on the 10th was land! Was tha water discolored, and did you see any seals or pen* guins on that morningl A?I saw no seals or penguins during my watch. The appearances of land were so slight, I can fcava no confidence in them whatever. Q ?Slats the latitude and longitude of the Vincennes, on the 19ih, 25th, and 28th of January ,1840.

Q.?Did you at any time during the cruise to th* Antarctic discover land at the distance as is laid down on the chart on the 19th4 A ?We saw land on the morning of the 10th, at the distance of forty or fifty miles both ways. Wa did not discover land at that distance. Q ?What steps did Lieutenant Wilkes take to keep the results of ths cruise secret, before you arrived at Svdnev 1 A.?A dav or two before we arrived at Sydney, lis called all .hands to muster and made a rpeecn. He spoke of the brilliant discoveries we had made down South, and enjoined secresy on all hands. He said it should be communicated to government, and it was right and proper that it should announca it. If any benefits were to be derived from the discovery, it was right and proper that our government should receive the first benefit of it, or words to that effect. Q.?After it was ascertained that the French had made the discovery on the evening of the 19th, was ihere'not an article appeared in a newspaper at Sydney, that the American squadron discovered it nn the morning of the 19th, with the knowledge of Lieutenant Wilkes 4 A.?Yes, rir. The French statement and ourm came out in the paper of the same day. The Amer ican statement was written Dy tne American uon*ul. I was in the cabin at work on the charts at ths lime, and heard tt read in manuscript, in Mr.Wdks^ presence, by the Consul. Crou-txnminttl by Mr. Hamilton, through ths ? Judge Advocate. Q ?Do you know whether Capt. Ross, in hit Antarctic cruise, states he saw land ona hundred miles distant T A.?I have seen his report, but don't recollect w hether he makes that statement or not. Q ? You say that on the 19th the Vincennss wu kept eff, and in the evening she was farther to ths southward and westward than in the morning; wos she not towed off to keep her clear of the barrier of ice 1 A.?Yes, she was towed off, the boats were got out, we had little or no wind. Q.? Did you ever know her to be towed off by ths boats on any other occasion 1 A .?I can call no other case to recollection whils we were among the ice. Q..?Look at the log under the date of the 10th and see if it says any ihing about seeing penguins, seal, whale, petlerel, ifcc. ? The witness read from the log of that dale that a *cal, penguin and petterel were seen, afterwards that two sperm whales and several pettereLs were seen, <Vr. In the evening an Albatross and Petter> p| were seen Xothing whatever tmt noted on the lug of a hi/ appearance of la ml. Cj, ?Were any orders issued to the officer of the .feck to go to the ma-u heed after he was relieved, am! report immediately to Lient Wilkes ! If yea, what was the occasion of the issue of such order; and was it not on the 22d January I A ?I recollect the occasion of the order, but not the date. A difference of opinion arose between the commander and Lieut Underwood, the latter having stated in his remarks that we had pawed several openings to the southward. That is ail I recollect about the case. Q.?Were von at any time during the Antarctio cruise called upon for your opinion in writing whether it was practicable to pursue the researches any further, if so, state the circumstances! A.?1 did write such an opinion at the oall of Lt. Wilkes. Wc had been constantly beset by the ice and in a gale of wind for the greater part of two days; the shin was in imminent peril of being lost constantly, (t required all hands a greater part of the time. The sick list was large; and the medical otlirers were the cause, by their reports, of 6ur being railed o.i for our opinion Q. ? Ir* the letter now shown you in your handwriting, and the one written by you at the timsl A.?Yes, sir. Mr. Hamilton rsad the following letter from Lt. Alden to Lt. Wilkes on that occasion:? , '1* S SU..V.T . - c.. 1 < jMiliary 31, 19?0. > 8ta In antwcr to rottr communication of to-day, addreaacd to the wardroom oltireta, calling upon them for their opin ion with regard to the practicability of our proeeeuting 'he,dtsuable rcaenrchea in theae latitude*.
