Charles Wilms, continued. The Court met pursuant to adjournment, all the members preaent. The journal of yesterday was read by the Judge Advocate. ^ The Junes Advocate then read the deposition of Frederick L>. Steward, which was taken de bent u*e yesterday, and published iii this morning's Herald. Mr. Hamilton called the attention of the Court to the tact thai Mr. Steward recognised the copy ot the Report he offered inevidenac, us being in his handwriting. Li. Cask being desirous ot making some corrections in Itis testimony ot yesterday, was recalled by the Judge Advocate, and stated as follows :? "1 would state, that from last night's reflection, and from examining a book shown me by the Judge Advocate, ttiat the men I was questioned about yesterday were punished for gelling drunk on board the Kelisf, and 1 also recollect that the ineu who were punished for desertion ran at sail Lorenzo, nine days before these men were punished." Q. By Mr. Hamilton?What was the book shown you by the Judge Advocate 1 A?It purports to be an abstract of punishment from n book kept by the Master-at-arms. Mr. Hamilton said he objected to the Judge Advocate pursuing this course in speaking to the witnesses tor the detence on the subject ot their testimony, after it tiad been given, and showing them documents not in evidence, out of Court. The Judge Advocate replied, he pursued this courbo it order to enable the witness to correct bis own testimony without calling other witnesses to show he was mistaken in his testimony. Lt. Hudson was also re-called by the Judge Advocate at his own request, to correct his testimony, which he did as foilowa " I stated here the other day that the reports presented were both copied by Mr. Steward; at the time I had a firm conviction that it waa so; but 1 have since been informed that it is not so. He was sometimes assisted in his writing by Mr.Power, the Purser's Steward, in the cabin, and he may possibly have written one of those; I do noi know." Q. By Hamilton.?Hid Dr. Guillou keep a journal ascirected by the General Order of 13th September, 1838 I A?I saw no journal kept by him agreeable to that order. Q?Did you see his journal at any time and wDen : it so what was its condition 1 A?1 saw a journal at Honolulu; it was considerably mutilated; there were some leaves torn out. 1 think that was Dr. Guillou's journal; 1 hove no doubt ot it. Q?About what number of leaves were torn out as near as you can judge I A?I can't say how many leaves were torn out; 1 think there were very few in it that were written on. It wa9 a sinalljoumal I think. Mr. Hamilton then read the General Order promulgated by Lt. Wilkes, dated 13th September, 1838, describing the description ol Journal to be kept by the officer* of the squadron, and for which they were to receive extra pay. [This order was published on Dr. Guillou's trial ] Mr. Hamilton then read a general order to the commanders of the Squadron, dated Oct. 12, 1840, directing tuein to instruct the pursers not to credit extra pay to any officer engaged in scientific duties, unless he kept a competent journal, and further,that they should furnish ttie pursers with a list ot the officers, at the end ol each month, not entitled to the extra pa v. Q.?Was the extra pay of Dr. Sickles checked,for not keeping a journal? A ?Yes. Mr Hamilton re id a letter from Dr Guillou to Lt. Wilkes, dated Oct 10,1840, in which he states the portion ol his journal ihat had been cut out related to his urivate a Hairs, hut rciuidiatcs the idea ol his lournal being; mutijated. (This letter wan published on Dr. (iuillou's trial ) Mr. Hamilton read from Lieut. Wilkes' letter book, the order of the dale of July 15, 1838. to which was prefixed an extract of a letter from J K Paulding. Secretary of the Navy, dated July 14th, 1838, ana which formed the basis of the order Tne JrixjK Advocate inquired il Lieut Wilkes had the original of Mr Paulding's letteruieut. Wilkes said it was not in his possession, and he was willing to make oath to that effect. Lieut Wilkes was then sworn, and the following question put by Mr Hamilton :? Q ?Did you receive a letter addressed to you by J K. Paulding, Secretary of the Navy, dated July | 14, 18381 if yea, have you made diligent Bcurch for itl and state if it is lost or mislaid, and cannot be found A?1 did receive such a letter, and have made diligent search for it, not only now, but heretofore, previous to my arrival in the United States, and have not been able to iind it, and believe it has either been mislaid or lost. By Advocate?Have you a copy of the whole of that letterl A ?I have not. Mr. Hamilton then read the following letter.? NATT DAfARTMCST, ) 38ih March, 1930. ? Sia? The Department feela iUelf called up;n to explain an act of forgetfulnew, which, when Jt come* to your know, ledge, may occasion aomc aurpnae. Shortly*before the late seasion of Congrea* expired, Mr. Mallory 'presented a resolution calling on the Navy Department, among other tblnga, for Information whether any extra pay had been allowed the officers of the Exploring Expedition by authority of the Department. The reply was that it had not; the Department having loit all traces of recollection of the letter to you dated 13th July, 1938, in rrply to one of the 10th, In which you atated that Mr. Poinsett had promised your officera the pay of those employed on the coaat survey. An application received within a few days past from Tasted .Midshipman Cumuiinga, for extra pay while he remained attached to the Kxpedition, and referring to that letter, inducod an examination, frem which it appeared that extra psy had been promised to officera of lha Exploring Expedition "employed in scientific pursuits;" and how far this may apply to the whole, will beat appear on your return. When it is recollected that thie letter was written only twelva days after I came into the Department?obliged to cope with its laborious and complicated concerns und< r all the disadvantage* oi inexperience?the cireumstance ofita hav ing been so totally forgotten la parhapa not very surprising. I hasten, however, in justice to you and myself, to <xplaio this aitiajr, and to express my regret at this lapse ot memory. As, however, it is doubtful whether the Department possesses any authority to allow extra pay to the officera of the Expedition, the most pi udent and advisable course will he for them to let it remain to their credit on the Purser's books until their return. In the meantime, the subject will ba presented to Congress, if it should bo decided thet the President has no power to make the allowance, and there la every reason to anticipate it* favorable decision. The report* received of your progree* in ettsining the great objects of tne Expedition are very satisfactory, end afford strong grounds for believing that they will be accomplished la a manner highly honorable to yourselves and satisfactory to the nation. 1 am, air, very respectfully, Your obi aerv't, J.

Q.?by Judo* Advocat*.?Did not Dr. Guillou represent to you, in May. 1810, tliat a medical officer could not attend to all the dutiea mentioned in Lt. Wilkee' order, and aek you what kind of a journal you wished him to keep, beaid*a the classifications of his department und meteorological inurnal! A.?Dr. Guillou came in my cabin ene evening and asked me what kind of u journal he was to keep; that he did not understand the order of Lt. Wilkes, in relation to the journals. 1 told him that the order had been promulgated, and was on the order book, where he could rend it, and it was so plain that there was not a midshipman in the ship but could understand it. ty.?Waa Dr. Guillou evar employed in mefeorological and scientific duties while under your command 1 A.?1 believe he kept the meteorological journal. Q.?Did not the conversation you alluded to, take place a few davs after the first order to send in the journals, after L)r. Guillou joined the Peacock I A. ?It did not. Purser K. R. Waldkon, recalled by Mr. Hamilton. Q.?Do you recollect having wen an original letter addressed to Lt. Wilkes, hy J. K. Paulding, f^cretary of the Navy, relating to rxtra pay?if yea, what waa the date of that letter ? A.?I remember to have seen a letter of general instructions from the Secretary of the Navy to Capt. Wilkes. In that letter he was authorised to allow the officers of the squadron extra jiay the same as received by those engaged on tiipcnusf survey, provided they performed scientific duties. To the best of my recollection, it i was dated July 14, 1838. Q.?Is the extract published in Lt. Wilkes' order of July lf>, 1838, a quotation or extract from that letter A.?It is a passage from that letter I Mr. Hamiutos read in connection with the fifth i specification of the first additional charge, a letter from Lt. Wilkes to Lt Pinkney, dated Cay of Islands, April 1, 184(1, forbidding him to ui?ke any rep his on the Flying Fish without his orders The Juno* Advooat* slated the letter did not touch the specification, as the repairs whieh Lieot Wilkee refined to pay tor were made an tha 10tb of Manb. iMft, nearly a month prsarfoua to the date of hie letter IER A MJ ???? ' ? 142. Mr. Hamilton read several iiemi from the bill 1 funnelled tor the repairs 10 the Firing Fish, which j he said Lieut. Wilkes refused to allow, because the , materials and labor might have beeu furnished by the quadron. Mr. Hamilton next introduced two lettens of the ; Stlt, and one of the 6'h April, 1840, from Lieut Wilkes to Lieut. Pinkney, giving Ins reasons tor not apinoving the account, which have already been published. ti?By Mr. Hamilton?When did the squadron sail from the Bay ot Islands! A.?On the 6th of ziprii irnu, iu inr ne?i 01 my rcuuncwuuuQ?State the amount [>aid by the United States lor tlte purchase of the Flying Fish in July, 183(? A.?The purchase money was #7,600, and about $1,600 were expended for reputrs. Q ?What was the amount paid for repairs on the Flying Fish in December, 1839, and does the account now presented exhibit the cost ol those repaital A.?About $2,000. It does preseut the account against the schooner; an item of #875 is here charged for provisions. Q.?How long was she at sea after the repairs were put ou her at Sydney 1 A?About three months. She went south on the second Antarctic cruise. Q ?Look nt the account of the repairs at New Zealand, and state what items could have been furnished from the Vincennea had she been in port A ?I find h re charged, canvass and boards, but not knowing what quantity was on board the Vin cennes, I can't say We had carpenters and urniorers on board, but 1 don't know whether they could have been spared or not Q ?Were not such repairs usually made by the mechanics of the squadrotil A-?Ihey were, except at Sydney? they were usually. Q.?Were not the articles usually supplied from the Vincennea and Peacockl A.?They were frequently supplied from those vessels. Q.?How soon did the Vincennea and Porpoise arrive at New Zealand after the Flying Fish, and was that the appointed place ol rendezvous for the re-union ol the squadron t A ?Ihe Vincennea two or three weeks, and the P? r oise one or two to the best of ray recollection. It \\ as the appointed place for the re-union of the squadron. Q?Did you, by order of Lt.

A?I did, agreeably to the written order 1 received. 1 wan ordered to check, against him for not keeping n journal part of the cruise. Crotn-txiimined by the Judge Advocate. Q?Did not Lt. Ringgold procure some articles | lor the Porpoise at New Zealand belore the urrival i of the Vinceunes, and did Lt. Wilkes find tault with him tor having done so during his nbsence, and did he refuse to approve the accounts 1 A?1 understood Lt. Ringgold did procure articles for the Porpoise before the arrival of the Vincennes. Lieut. Wilkes did not find fault and refuse to approve the account, to my knowledge. Q.?Was it not a notorious fact that rthe Flying Fish was in a worse condition than the Porpoise after ihe return from the Antarctic cruise 1 A?it was thought she required more done for her. Q.?by Hamilton?Did not Lt. Ringgold produce vouchers for his account, and did he not receive permission from Lt. Wilkes to make those rep.iirsl A?He did produce vouchers; I don't know whether he obtained permission from Lt. Wilkes to make the repairs or not. Q.?by Judge Advocate?Did not Lt. Pinkney alsoproduce proper vouchers! A?He did. The order to check against t he account of Midshipman Blunt was handed the wi tneas, and he stated as follows: "I received orders on the 20th March, 1840, to check against the extra pay of Passed Midshipman Blount, from the 11th March, 1840, and until further oriiers. for not nerlormiria his duties in the squadron. He received his extra pay previous to the 11th of March, 1840; the order does not designate that it was stopped for not keeping a journal." Q. by Hamilton?Hid not Mr. Blunt keep a journal until the 11th of March, and whs not his extra pay stopped because he did not keep n journal ufter that date? A.?I think it was, in fact 1 recollect that was the reason. By Judoe Advocate?State as near as you can the contents of the letter front the Secretary of the Navy of the 14th July. 18i8. A.?It was sailing instruc tionsfor the Exploring Squadron, and 1 ain not certain, on reflection, that the extract I referred to hefore was in this letter; if it was not it was in one ac companyirg it. k is over three years eince 1 have seen these letters. Dr. John L. Fox called by Mr. Hamilton and examined through the Judge Advocnte. Q ?How long were you on board the Vincennes, and ia what capacity 1 A.?About four years. Part of the tin.e as Assistant Surgeon and part as Acting Surgeon. Q.?State as near as you can the average time Lt. Wilkes devoted to the duties of the squadron, and what effect his general assiduity had on hithealth? A.?He devoted his whole time to the du lies of the squadron, and did not reserve to himself more than five hours a day for sleep. He was irregular in his sleep, so as to injure his health; the length of time he went without sleep was extraordinary. CI-?Have you advised him that repose was necessary, and did he relax his attention to duty in consequence! A.?I have advised him to that effect repeatedly, but it appeared to have no influence on his course. Q.?Have you not remarked that you could scarcely realite that a man could perforin the arduous duty Lt. Wilkes did with so little sleep and recreation! A.?-1 think I have. That is my im predion. The defence here rested. Mr. CotTHotJT, readied by the Judge Advocate. Q ?State wnetheryon wa* in the water at Clermont Tounerre on the 19th of August, 1838; if yea, whetheryor was attacked by the natives on that oc casion, and if they attempted to kill you with their spears. A.?I swam on snore with some trinkets in my hand that I might propitiate the natives. Thet retired some fifty or iixty yards up the beach I advanced towards them wnen they turned ana rushed townrds rne with their spearp, putting them within six inches o( my face, making the most hideous facesand yells. I retreated backwards unit! I jtoi to the edge of the surf, when I sprang in. Why thev did not kill me I cannot tell; they certainly could have done so with the greatest ease, and I thought at the time they would spear me When J sprang in the water two or three of them threw their spears at me, and they stoned me till J go; to the boat. Q ?Was you armed, and what protection had you from your countrymen in the boats! A?I was entirely naked, and had no protection whatever while on shore. I went unarmed hoping best to conciliate the natives hy that means; the boats were out side the put! from forty to fifty feet distant. Q ?Were any of the natives wmunded in the at tack, and how 1 A.?After I got out to the boat, ivir. i.>orm iirru a biiui. irfvinun 10 in?i, m Hiioinrr point two or three shots hurl been fired from Captain Wilkes'boat. Captain Wilkes fired fir?t, anu immediately nfter I saw a native wounded in the fare, washing the blood off in the crevices in the rock. Mr. Peale then fired, and 1 think shot one of the natives in the lrg. Mr. Peale fired again, 1 believe, but will not state positively. The natives then retired slowly uy the beach, two of them having hold of one that had been shot; he appeared to limp. O.?Did yon not land on thatisland the day before, anugo about it Without molestation 1 A ?We did Mr. Pickering and Lieut. Case, Passed Midshipman Blunt and myself, and one or two oihera were on shore about half an hour, and walked all about the lagoon without molestation. Q.?How f?r was this lagoon from the shore T A ?Perhaps twelve or fifteen hundred feet We might hive landed on the dav of the attack without molesration. if we had landed Ht once, and not have laid off thusexciting the suspicions of the natives. Q ?Did you nee any native* on the day you first landed? A ? We did not are any native*, we had no idea any were there, bnt they weVe wen from the boat?they might have easily cut us off if they had attempted it, as we wers dirjienwd about, and far from the boat. Gunner Wii.lia.msox, recalled by Judge Advocate; Q ? You have stated you had a conversation on the 19th, about land : did you afterwards look for the appearance and could not find it 1 A ?I do not recollect oflooking for it. I was sent below by Cant. Wilkes to assist in getting out a hawser to tow the ship off. The Judge Advocate said he rhould like to examine Purser Specden in reference to the two reports, as he had been informed he copied the one having the word " morning" in, hut he wa? not now on board Mr. Hamilton said he wished to introduce Lieut Wilkes'journal lor a specific purr oar, and for that purpose only, to show that the journal does contain an entry of having seen land on the 19th Jan., 1940 I The Judge Advocate said he would not object, if [ Lieut.
