The member* of the Court met at hair paat nine o'clock. Captain Bolton read the following letter, which had been received by a member of the Court, from Dr. Harria, of Philadelphia:? Philadelphia, Feb. 13, 1843. Dear Our worthy friend, Commodore Hull, died this morn. ing, at 115 minutes alter 6 o'clock. He has been lor the last ten days fully sensible of his approaching dissolution, and has made all necessary arrangements to meet his last sad change. Alter making a proper disposition of his proper* t>, he purchased a lot at Laurel Hili, which is to be his last anchorage, and even sunt tor the undertaker, for the parpese ol giving him directions respecting the structure ofhiscotliu. Ha sail that he "preferred settling these matters himsflt, in order to save his wife all unnecessary trouble in the keen hours ol alflietion" Disease olten alters the character of men so that they sometimes become querulous, petulant, and attord other evidence of weakness. No change of this kind, however, was exhibited by our excellent and emineut neighbor. His last days, like his whole life, were marked by composure, firmness, and cherfitlness. Our friend Ruscheuberger, who set up with him last niglit, says, he died without suffering. I ' , have not heard what urn the arrangements tor his funeral, i but trust and hopo that they will be creditable to our city. He was a good man, and his services to his country inesti- , mable. His memory should be cherished us a gem beyond value. When thu news of his death reaches New York, I hope some appropriate notice will be taken of it. At laast I hope your Court, as is commou in civil courts, will adjourn temporarily after passing resolutions expressive ol ) our s-nse of his churacter and services. Such a tnea- J sure is not only due to the memory ol Commodore Hull, but it may be also good ]>olicy in an hour of navul tribulation, to revive the aeliievments and glut ions recollections of the past. ? ? ? Your Iriend, WM. HARRIS, Captain , U. 8. N. On the motion ofCapt. Smi th, Com. Downes was called to the Chair, and the Judge Advocate appointed Secretary. It was then, on motion of Captain Bolton, unanimously? Resolved, That a letter ol condolence be prepared and forwarded to the lady of the late Commodore Hull. The Court Martial was then called to ordcr.and the proseediugs resumed. Lieut. Gansevoort was again placed on the stand, and the following questions by the Court put to him: When Cromwell took leave of you, and asked your forriveness, did he ask you to tell any one at home that he lied innocent? A Not at that time. Q Did you report to the Commander the iniubordinato onduct of Cromwell at the time? A.?I do not think 1 did. i Q In your experience i* it uaual for the beat aeaman 1 >r a hoatewain'i mate to go aloft on the carrying away of a i mail? A ?I think not, unleai they are ordered. i Q ?Were any of the men not itationed at the foretop, md not inspected of mutiny, aloft at the time the top gal. lautmast wai carried away? ? A 1 think there were none but thoio oi whom I had my suspicions. < Q.?Were the irons of the Somers sufficient to secure prisoners? t A.?They were such as are usually onboard a man of war, but 1 don't think the handcuff's were secure enough. ri U ?Do you know whether or not the men aloft were c waiting to receive anything from the deck? c A ?Tb"y did not ask for any thing; but when I sent Anderson up he came down and took a lail block with t him. C (J? Did you see any of the other officers besides Mr. Spencer have their arms marked with Indian ink? t A.?1 do not recollect. j The President liero remarked, that as there had been juestions put, which, although legal, he would not put, s le wished the gentlemen to append their namos to their s juestions. By Captain Qwinn?Did you see In Commander M'Ken- \ "any traces of unmanly tear, despotic temper, or con- ] luct unbecoming an American naval officer?" j A.?No, sir, By Captain Gwinn?Before tho execution of the ring- I leaders "was the Somers in a state to sustain the honor of I the American flag, in case of going into action?" A ?No, sir. By Captain Storer?Was Cromw >11 known to be a na- I tive of this country? i A.?1 can't say?I think he told me he was a native of Virginia. < By Captain Paige?When you speak of the force for i taking rare ol the prisoners, do you have in your mind the warrant and commissioned officers alone ? I A.?The warrant and commission officers, and some afthe petty officers were true. t By lueJudge Aptocatf.?Was Cromwell punished for I s my of the insulio rdinate conduct you have described ? A.?He was not, except by very severe reproof, my fi reason was, that his services were indispensihle. ti By Captain Smith?Did Cromwell act as boatswain? A-Hedid. ii By Judge Advocate?Ha ;e you not seen similar mislehavior as that noticed in Cromwell in other seamen, on h loardof other vessels, without there being a mutiny? A No, sir. A By Judge Advocate?If this conduct was so marked h md 'continuous, why did not you report it? A.?I stated the reasons heforu. d By Ji'Dor. Advocate?Did you regard it atthetime as z nutinousf A.?I regarded it as highly insubordinate; 1 did not n mow of a mutiny then, or I would have regarded it as u autinoua. p< Ry Captain Smith?Did Cromwell ask you to tell any me at home that he was innocent?if so, when and hy rr vhom? v A.?Shortly after the Commander told them they were o die, he told me to tell them that if they had any messa pi ;es to send home that 1 would take them. I asked Crom- d veil, and he said he supposed his clothes, kc., would go to si lis wife. 1 asked him, "Have you no message to that vife?" He said, "Tell my poor old father,''or lather-in- d iw, I don't remember which, "that I die innocent to the 0 ist " I think. t( By J udoe Advocate?Did he bid you tell Lieut.

Is it not your opinion, that if an c< Ction hud impended, such an event would hove recalled lie crew to their duty, supposing a mutiny to have exist- di d7 C( A.?No air. 1 think they would have ran off with Ler. h 'he was a fast vessel,|and Cromwell often apoke of her g* peed. (e By Judge Advocate?After the occurrence of the maat lid vou charge the men who were aloft with being idle o nd dilatory, and ifao whatwaa their anawer 7 w A ?I think 1 apoke to them whilat they were aloft, and h he Commander laid something to me, which prevented c ne from apeaking again. President?Yau had better confine yotir anawcra to a he terms of the questions. ByJudge Advocate?Did you ever charge Cromwell tl ind Small with plotting aloft after the occurrence of the ? nast, and if so, what was their reply 7 o A I don't think I did so charge them. By Judge Advocate ?Did you not, after the arrest of C >tr Spencer,believe almost all the grown seamSn, ex- a :ept the patty officers, to be his accomplices 7 A.?Not all, Sir.

P Commander McKkkxie here put a queation relative to t lie alledged statement respecting the subordinate use to 1 thich Cromwell intended to put Spencer on board the rig. if the mutiny had succeeded, but it was objected to si y the Judge Advocate and deemed inadmissible, inasmuch J D a the witneaa knew nothing of it from his own know dee. t* By Cant.
