Tn this charge Mr. Smith pieaded not guilty, lu sup|K>rt 01 the prosecution, Mr. Samukl Cahoots was produced and swoi n. Question to Mr. Samuel Cahoon.? Did you go on hoard the Vulture, sloop-oi-war, belonging to the enemy, the iiight ofthe ,twenty -lirst ol September instant, with;Mr. Smith I At?s.?Yes. Mr. Smith had been up at Fishkill, as he told me, and came down in the evening, and told me he wanted to speak a word with me, and I went with him up in his room, and he asked me to go with him that night a piece, he said, down the river, 1 told him 1 had no mind to go, and did not want to go; he did not urge me hard to go. Then he said he must send me up expiess to General Arnold, and we shbuid go over to the otlier house ; but, upon my telling him 1 had no ,miud to go, he seemed to urge my going, and said it was great business 1 tnought it w us best to go, aud agreed to go. We w ent over to ins brother's, where 1 consented to go to General Arnold's, and was luruished by Mr. Smith w ith ahoise, and a paper to Major keirce, and went oil. 1 went on us lust as 1 could, and got to General Arnold'sjust boloie sunrise, the General was not up, aud 1 delivered the letter Iroui Mr. Smith to General Arnold, to a gentleman there ; and 1 w as informed by the General, theie was no occasion for an answer; and 1 was told by him I might go on as quick as 1 could. 1 returned back, and sometime in the afternoon General Arnold passed me, and r*de tow ards Mr. Joshua U. Smith's house?(Mr. Smith, the prisoner, acknowledged that General Arnold arrived at his house that alternoon)?Near sun-down, Mr. Smith spoke tome as 1 was going lor the cows, and told me to coine up, us the General wanted to speak with me. 1 went up with Mr. Smuh in the room wheie General Arnold was, who asked mo to go with him a piece that night; I said 1 could not go, being up the night before, and told him 1 was alraid to go; but General Arnold urged me to go, and told me it I wus a friend to my country I should do my best; and at last 1 asked the General where he wanted me to go, and tho General and Mr. Smith said on bourd ut the ship in the river, and that there was a man theie the General wanted to see very much. Upon my saying what was the reason he couiduot stay till the morning, General Arnold said it mutt be done that night; and upuu my saying 1 coul 1 not go alone, Mr. Smith desired me lo go and letcli my biother. I went, and my wife being disatished with my going, I went back to General Arnold, and told him I did not want to go, and told him there were guard-boats out; ho said there was no danger ol' them, and said if 1 did not go, he would look upon me aa a diaaUecteu mau. I (hen went and fetched my brother; and when we came back wu a jj"*" nunc ociore we consented to go; out at lust we did, and there beiug a boat iu the creek, myself, Mr. Smith ami my brother went to the boat, ami rowed down to the ship. Daring my conversation with General Arnold and Mr. Smith, Mr. Smith was in and out of the room, and) do not recollect any particular conversation passing between Mr. Smith and General Arnold separate. No other conversation passed between Mr. Smith and myself on the war dowu that 1 recollect, but Mr. Smith tel.lux ino not. to j.av a?v thu>? - r . , i - ?- the vessel, which was Goncrul Arnold's charge likewise. W e were hailed by the vessel, and Mr. smith auswered, friends, and said we were irora King's Kerry, and bound to Dobb's Ferry; anil we were ordeied alongside immediately. When we came alongside ol the ship Mr. Smith went on board, and stayed, 1 think, not longeron board than a quarter ol an hour, and returned on board the boat with a man. We set oil from the vessel, and rowed on shore, and we landed at the Long Cove, a little below Haverstraw, about a hall a mile helow the dock, and about six miles from Stoney 1'oint. 1 heard no conversation between Mr. Smith and this person on the way ashore. 1 sat in the bow ol the boat, aud they in the stern, and I think if there had been any 1 could have heard it. When we came on shore 1 heard the noise of a man at a bank above, and Mr. Smith went up, and returned immediately ; and the person w e brought on shore went up, and Mr.)Smith staid with us, and asked my brother and myself if we would go on board the vessel again that night. I.told him 1 was fatigued, being up the night before, and could not go. All this time the other person was not present, end 1 do not know where he was, but suppose he was up against the bank, as he went that way. Mr. Smith said if we could not go we must do as we thought best, and would leave it to us, hut made us no oll'er to return on board the vessel that night. Mr. Samuel Caiioo* further say :?Mr. Smith, himself, and brother then went up in the boat to Haveritraw Creek, and Mr Smith staid on the shore with them, from their first lauding,except when he wenttewards the bank and returned, as he has mentioned, until he went in the boat with them to llaverstraw Greek, and from thence he went with Mr. Smith to his house were he lived, but did not see the person there that he brought onshore from the vessel, to know liirn. The j>eison they brought on shore had n dark colored coat on, but whether black or blue, he does not know , as he did not take notice of it. It was a ween ' last Thursday- night, when he was on board the vessel ! with Mr. Smith. He never carried Mr. Smith on board 1 the vessel again?neither had he been ou board belore with ' him, and did not see General Arnold at Mr. Smith's house 1 when he returned that night. He also mentions he had ( no conversation with Mr. Smith about carrying the man ( they landed on board again, except the conversation that ! took place on the shore, as he has mentioned ; and he says he received no reward or promise from Mr. Smith lor ' bringing this person on shore ; but mentions that General Arnold had promised him tifty weight of flour, which was 1 before he went on board with Mr. Smith. He also say a f General Arnold ordered them, when they went down in the boat, to take a sheepskin with theui to put around their \ oars, and he put one around his.

The General ilso said Major (tierce ha I agreed ts send him up u boat to the creek at Colonel Hay's landing place,but had not done it, and hedid aot know the reason; upon which Mr. Smith asked me if I would take his horse and ride down to the ferry, to see whether the bout was come. I said no, he might send his negro ; he ordered the negro to get the horse, and the negro went off. While the negro was (one, myself and my brother, concluded nut to go; but both were afraid to tell the General of it, und did not go to him, and the time passed away until the negro came. When he came, I ashed him what news conce ning the uoat, an i in: sua lie aid not Know, and tie Drought a letter rom Major Kierce to the General, u|>on which 1 told my brother 1 would go uj> and tell the General. I had no miml to go; and us 1 w us going up 1 u et Mr. Smith iu the antry,an I he told me the tieuerul wanted to speak with me; and he passed out to the stoop, and I went into the room to the General, w ho was sitting hy a table with pa- i per, und on hu speaking to me, I acquainted him I hud no mind to go, us it was late, anil said 1 would rather go in die morning. General Arnold said iiu must go to Head .

Thu general and Mr. Smith talked together, but wtiat they laid 1 do not know ; they were withdrawn from us; the listance 1 cannot estimate, but it was such a distance as 1 ;ouldnot hear what they said, as they talked low together ; they were no tuna ol auy value together ; may >e two miuutes, may be more or less. My brother, Mr. Smith.aud my self, went down to the landing, about a half i mile below King's Kerry, anil passed off iu the boat, und think it was pretty well near midnight when wegoc (If. Vlr. Smith had on a whitish coat, a pretty Urgu one, chich 1 think 1 have seen him wear before. Mr. Smith old us on the way, that when we came on board the ves el, we had uothiug to do but to stay on board the long loat, and when usked questions to say nothing at utL < iVhen we came to the vessel they hailed us, aud Mr. ; Smith answered " hallo," or some such a word, but 1 | hink it was not the word Kr.cn.I ; and upon twang asked j * l.uru M.w were livilli, Mr. Kinith answered from S.ng'. | Kerry,aud were liound to Dobhs's Kerry, Hud they ordered i us to come on board immediately. When we got along tide ol the ship, Mr. Smith went ou board aud staid a 1 little time, but i cannot say the exact time ; it might be a quarter ol an hour or a little longer, but the exact time I < iiaHUoi say ; 1 was usked several questions by men w ho -urn*, tin Iwvard tin* l.n.l .... ........ r>?,? mil going tn, an J what man he wus who came on hoard, but 1 would not anawer them, and told them to ask the person who went on board ; and at last orders came Ibr - very man, who was011 board the boat belonging to the ihip, to come out immediately. Mr. Smith alter a little line came on boatd the boat, uudauother man came with aim, who had a dark colored coat en, which 1 looked upon ;o be a w atch coat. 1 thought it was,a watch coat, because it covered the whole ot his clothing ; then we rowed on ihort, at a place called the Long Clove, about six miles "rom Stoney Point, where we landed ; and Mr. Smith w cut up towards the bank, a little way from the water. 1 heard Mr. Smith and the person in the boat talk a little ou the way ashore, but how much I cannot say, and I did not inderstand what they said. 1 did not see any man by the lank; Mr Smith staid a little while there, cume back, and he other man went up, who 1 did not see afterwards. When Mr. Smith returned, he staid with us, aud came up with my brother and myself in the boat to a place called Crom's Island in Haverstra w Creek. When we landed, 1 itepped out aud got down under a buah, and was drow sy, uid had no conversation with Mr. Smith, about returning .o the vessel that night ^neither hnd anyl conversation with j Mr. Smith, about returning to the vessel with that man ifterwards, and I declare 1 have not seen Mr. Smith from hat time until this day. General Arnold promised me 1 ifty weight of flour for going on board the vessel, but I ever iaw it; Mr. Smith did not promise me.mything or it. Vlr. Smith after his return did not deeire me to keep it a secret. Upon the Boat coming along side the vessel the ide was flood, and we nil three were u[>oii our legs, keepn? the boat from the side of the"vessel, and one on board laid come on hoard, upon whicfi Mr. Smith went. I did lot hear Mr. Smith enquire for any person upon his going >n board, but lost sight of him immediately, as he was lipid deck. After we got out from the ship, Mr. Smith told is to row ashore to Long Clove. Mr. Smith steered the >oat himself. The time we arrived at the Long Clove 1 lo not know ; but it was about day-break when we got to Prom's Island, and when we got to Mr. Smith'a house it 1 was after day light. We were not hailed on our way lown.but by the ship ; neither were we on our way reurning. When wecame lo Mr. Smith's house, aflerour eturn from the ship, to the best of my know ledge 1 saw Jencral Arnold, come out of Mr. Smith's house, and ao to the neceasary house. lie walked lame and had on a due coat and white breeches 1 am mire he was the same aan who I saw before I went on hoard the vessel, who ?as called General Arnold, as well as I ran judge from ny knowledge of men. Mr. Smith gave me a sheepskin, vnen I left his house, and I carried it down to the boat ind he and m) self inulfled my oar with it, and my broth r ntlflled the other, and after we returned to Crom's Island, 1 dr. Smith told us to take the sheepskin oft from the oars, ml throw the oars upon the grass, one of the sheepskins 1 va* aken off.

Mr Hmith Ma informed mo, that tie wa* upon a plan in conjunct ion v 'ith General Arnold to gain intelligence of the utmost nportance, and that he expected to meet a gentleman foi ., tat purpose near Dobb'* Kerry, but did not mention the J me whrn he expected to imet him. He then agreed rith the Lieutenant of my guard tioat* to have a watch- , '' ord, so that the Lieutenant might let him pa*a at any . " me by day or night by the boat*, without hi* t>?ing tie- , jl lined. I neither heard nor saw any thing of Mr, Hmith j . ntil last Kiiday night week just after dark. He stopped t my marquee for a few minutes. I asked him where he ' ras going. He snid up towards General Arnold's or thmt oute, and I gave him one letter to he delivered to General , a Lrnold, and another to Governor Clinton, as he had m- 1 ti

irmed me it was likely he would go that route. I then rgod him to stav awhile and take supper or a drink ol 1 tl cog. He then informed me that there was a gentleman raiting for him, who had just rode on, and wa* in a huify p get ott, and informed me his business was rery urgent, d nd I did not insist on his staying any longer. He then >de off and 1 did not see the person, who was wuh hi*i. ? beingdaik and lie having rode forward. Q ?Do you know of Mr Smith having made use of t|a '1 uard boat or watchword ? * A.?I do not know. li Q?Did Mr. Smith inform you before the time you have RK H NING, NOVEMBER 29, SXCTED WJTH THE TREAS CAPTURE OF ANDRE. mentioned that he was employed by General Arnold to get intelligence 1 A.?Mr. Smith never was more than two or threo timet at my quarters, and mentioned it the different times he was there. t^.?When Mr. Smith was at your qusrUrs and mentionc I that there was a person with hint, did you not desire him to request the person to walk in 7 A,?1 did, an i he informed me the gentleman had rode on slowly, and he was in a hurry to go alter him. Colonkl I! a it into s was next produced on the part of the prosecution and sworn. Q?I'lease to relate what you know respecting Mr. Smith being on board the Vulture slonp-of war belonging to the oneniy, and bringing a person ou shore from thai vessel. Mr. Smith objected to Colonel Harrison, and also to Lieutenant Colonel Hamilton, being admitted to give evidence respecting any confession that he might have made in their presence. The Court being cleared and having considered the matter, they were of opinion that they should be .idnii.tf l to give evidence respecting Mr. Smith's confession in this case. Colon ll Iixaaison, in answer to the above request-I was at Robinson's house on Tuesday or Wednesday last, to the best of iny recollection, and was requested by one o( the gentlemen of his excellency's family, or some olhrcr who was there, to go into a room to htar the examination of Mr Joshua Smith, th" prisoner, who I understoo 1 had been apprehended the proceeding night, and brought there by Colonel Uovion.iu consequence of orders from General Washington. When I went into the room I found the General, the Marquis de la Fayette, General Knox, Colonel Hamilton mi l Mr. Smith. In a little time alter, to the best of my recollection, the General mentioned to Mr. Smith, that he must be apprised of what had happeneJ,and told him that lie thought,or advised him, 1 don't recollect which, that he had better make a candid confession of all he knew with respect to he matters that hail been carrying on,|l think by General Arnold, aud added again that it might b? better lor him to act with openness and candor. Mr. Hmith upon this made the most solemn protestations of ins innoC' nee, an.l ol his ignorance that Ueneral Arnold had boun carrying on any nutters injurious to the States; professed himself to be a w arm friend, and that his person and property, or his purse, I don't recollect which, had l>een devoted to their service. Mr. Smith continued tore peat hia innocence of the matters then under consideration ?and to the beat of my recollection, made an appeal to the Almighty, who he said could witness the integrity of hit heart. After having made tneie asseveration', the Usarrul observed to . r. Smith that he was in possession of facts an t evidence that would place hia conduc' in a vary different poi-Hol view with respect to the matter its question. 'Till this |>eriod Mr. Smith appeared to me to siil>port himself with firmness and consistency, lie then procevded to tell theUeneral that he would relate all he knew, and on being asked to inform whether an officer or the Jldjutant Gennra! of ihe British *1rtny, I don't recollect which, under the assumed name of John .Inderwan bad not been brought on shore by him from the Vulture ship-ofwar, lie suid that he had. Mr. Smith said he had been prevailed on, on the night of the proceeding Thursday to go on board that vessel by Ueneral Arnold, to carry a letter or n message, I don't remember which, to Coiocel Beverly Hobinsou, and whom he expected to bring with him when he came hack in the first instance, for the purpose of an interview w ith Ueneral Arnold for intelligence or on business, I don't recollect precisely the expression, of importance to the States. That as soon as he was on lioaid of the vessel, it was concluded that an officer who Mr. Smith said he only knew by the name of John Anderson, should return with him instead of lluhinsan- That the interview took place at the shore between Arnold and this officer. That Arnold and the person or officer who lie hail brought on shore, were at his house ufterwards?the same night that he furnished this person, under the assumed name of Joha Anderson, with a coat to disguise himself, and that he had taken the uniform coat which lie, John Anderson, hail on belore, and retained it- That ho, Mr. Smith, crossed the ferry of Stoney Point on Friday evening, in order to conduct Mr. Anderson to the White Plains un tiis way to Now York, and wa? stopped, I think ho ?aid, to the best of my recollection, that night at Crompond ornearit. Mr. Smi'h, in the course of the examination, invariably denhirul that liia object wa? to obtain intelligence for ua, ami assigned upon its being observed by the General, or some gentleman who was present, that the mode he had adopted appeared illy calculated lor that end, as he was to procure it on board one of the enemy's slnpv of-war, that he thought it probable Colonel ltobinson might be disposed to give such as would be beneficial to ui or serviceable, from a wish to have some lavor, or, I think, countenance shown with respect to his estate, which was in our hands?it w as observed to Mr. Smith that supposing it possible to conceive, that he was rcally c.tious iu the matter with respect to itobinson, that these motives could not exist in the case of Mr. Anderson who had no property amongst us. Mr. Smith appeared much ttmbarrassed.and answered that he could only say that Anderson was stint 011 shore instead ot Robinson. As it appeared mysterious to the gentlemen who attemled the examination why this officer under the name of John Anderson was not returned on board of the ship after finishing his business, by Mr. Smith, some oftho company were induced to ask the reasons. Mr. Smith replied that it was because he, meaning himself, had the fever and ague so had that he could not go on board. though he hud confessed but a little before, that he meant to proceed with him as far as the White Plains by land, or somewhere in the county in the vicinity of that place. The examination of Mr. Smith, as well as I recollect a tied here, and he was remanded under guard. In a little time after it w as observed by some of the gentlemen that it would he essential to gain possession of this uniform coat I have mentioned, when I was requested by the Oeneralto pursue such measures, tor the pur|Kise, as appeared to me necessary. I had previotialy understood that Captain Ccann,of Lee's Light Horse, wasut Mr. Thomas Smith's, brother ol Mr. Joshua Smith, and I meant to write him an order to get the coat, in consequence of the request from the General. I wished from motives of policy as well us humanity to make as little noise about the mutter as the case would admit, anil applied to Mr. Joshua Smith, the prisoner, to know whether he himself would mt give an order that Captain Crams might get the coat. Mr. Smith accordingly wrote a letter addressed to his irother Thomas Smith, to deliver to Captain Cearns, of Lee's Light Horac, a uniform or regimental coat, I don't 'ecollect which, which he would liml up stairs in the Irawera, at his, meaning Joshua Smith's house, and which oat I nrnlrrfttmi.l wm tho uniform rout whirlt th#? not con indor the name of Anderson, had left with Ml*. Smith, dr. Smith delivered the letter to me, which I transmitted o Cnptain Cearns. The mutter ended here, end I had no onversstion with Mr. Smith afterwards Mr. Smith did lot acknowledge the officer who came on shore witli him rom the Vnltnre, tinder tiny othor name that I recollect, lian that of Anderson.

A?I don't recollect that he mentioned that he lodged here.

(j. by Do.?Was 1 not particularly interrogated by some of the gentlemen present, with respect to Anderson's dress, when I first saw him 011 board the ship? A You were questioned about his dress, and to the best of my recollection, said that he hail 011 a uniform coat, and a blue surtout, or a great coat over it. Q. by Do.?Did I assign no other reason but that of being unwell, for not returning Anderson on board the ship? A. -To the beit ot my knowledge you said you could not do it, as you had the fever and ague. When it was observed that it was strange, that a man was in such a situation M not to be able to go a few miles by water, nml could go a long journey, or a considerable distance, by land. You might have added some other reasons, but If you did 1 do not recollect them. Lieut.-Col Ai.r.t*aukk Hamilton was next producad j on the part of the prosecution, and sworn. * t^. ? l'lcasc to declare what you know respecting Mr. Smith, the prisoner, declaring that he had been on board the Vulture sloop ol war belonging to the ene. mv, and fetching a person on shore from that vessel I | A.?1 was present whan Mr, Smith, the prisoner, made his confession before the gentlemen already mentioned by Colonel Harrison, which was substantially as follows: ? I That he hud teen employed by Major Generals Howe , and Arnold, tor the purpose ot procuring intelJig nc.e from the enemy; that General Arnold informed him of an | interview he was to havo with Col. Robinson of the British army, in which ho assured him he expected to derive information of im|>ortancr, and wished to engage Mr. Smith to go on tioard the Vulture sloop of war then ; tying in the North river, to bring Colonel Robinson on shore for the purpose of that interview; that he gave Mr. Hmith an order lor a boat to execute this commission; that he went secretly and in the night on board the Vulture, to the best of my recollection, with a note from Oeneral Arnold to Colonel Robinson, that his being on board w as known not only to Colonul Robinson, but to the officers of the vessel; that instead of Col. Robinson, a person under the name of John Anderson came on shore with him; that General Arnold and Anderson wrre that night and the nest day at his, (Mr. Smith, the prisoner's) house; that he w as an absolute stranger to the business they transacted; thut he was not able to return with Mr. Anderson in the same manner he had brought him to the interview, on account ol his having the fever and ague; that he therefore took a different mode, and proceeded with him by King's Ferry towards the White Plains; that he left lnm on the road, I do not exactly recollect at w hat place, and returned himssll; that either previousto his setting o it. or in the course of the tourney, he as-isted Mr. An. derson to exchange the clothes be hn<l tor others, which Mr. Smith furnished, I believe he said,at the desire ol General Arnold; that he understood from General Arnold, before he undertook the commission, that his (General Arnold's) hopes of procuring intelligence Irom Col. Robinson were founded on Robinson's desire to make terms for thesafety of his estate. Mr. Smith, in the course of his examination, asserted his innocence of the transactions between General Arnold and Mr. Anderson, with very solemn protestations and appeals to heaven. On being pressed as to the possibility of his having given this interpretation to the business he was concerned in, liom the circumstances of Col. Robinson having come up in n King's vessel, which must necessarily have been with the privity of Sir Henry Clinton, having deputed a third person to represent him in a matter which would have been to ull intents and purjioses treason, the giving intelligenccto an enemy, as pretended by General Arnold, andofhis having been received, and a third person sent, in presence of the officers of the ship, ull which denoted that the object of the interview must have had the sanction o(8ir Henry Clinton, as before intimated, and consequently must have been for promoting the interests of the enemy- Mr. Smith appeared at first a good deal embarrassed, but finally replied that he acted from the perfect confidence he hail in General Arnold, w hose rank and services to the country would not sutli r him to entertain the least suspicion of his being capable of entering into a treasonable combination with the enemy. Mr. Smith, on being (questioned if the person he brought an shore was dressed in a uniform, answered, that he could not perfectly distinguish whether he wore a uniform or not, but that he had on a r?d coat, with a Muesurtout. Mr. Smith ulso acknowledged, in the course of his examination, to the best of my memory, that he had carried a pass on board the Vulture tor John Anderson from General Arnold. Lieut. Colonel Hamilton also mentions that front the sub Major .Andre, .Adjutant General to the Hritith .Army, vho | hae recently euffered death. i Q.liy Coust?Did Mr Smith mention of hi* having been on board the Vulture before he brought this person, under | the name of John Anderson, on shore?
