I, WtLLUM Gordon, of Providence, in the coun ty of Providence, declare and say, That the first information I received of the mur der of the late Mr. Amaaa Sprague, was from a shoemaker, whose shop was in the building next the house in which I boarded at the time. I called at his ahop on the morning after the murder, and he mentioned the circumstances as the news of the morning. 1 told him I could not believe the story, for I was out at Cranston the afternoon be fore, and heard nothing about it. He replied that he had seen the newspaper which contained an account ot the matter, and he believed it. I then went to my work at Mr. O'Brien's tailor's shop, where the murder was several times the subject ot conversation among the visitors and inmates of the shop, I taking part in the conversation, and continuing to express my doubts as to the truth of the reports. About noon, however, my brother Nicholas, with a man, a stranger to me, came to the shop, and from bim we learned that thsto* was no doubt of the death of Mr Spmgue O'Brien was in the shop all the time Nicholas stayed,and one or two other persons, whose names I cannot now recall. Nicholas wish ed me to come, out to Cranston and spend New Year's Day, with my family, saying it the first New Year's Day that had come since John and I had arrived in America, and it was too bad 1 should work that day. I was willing, and rather wished to go, but my employer, Mr. O'Brien, objected, as he needed my work that day; but said 1 might go in the evening. I continued working until towards dusk, when 1 set off on foot for Cranston. On ar riving near the house of Mr. Sprague, 1 noticed quite a body of men coming down the road, who turned off into Mr. Sprague's house, when I was within thirty or forty rods of them. This excited my curiosity, and when, on arriving near the bridge in the hollow, I met two men, I spoke to them, bidding them "good evening," intending to enquire of them what was the occasion of the ga thering of the people which I had witnessed a few moments before. These men proved to be Wil liam Tatelv and William Downey, with both of whom f was acquainted, and one of whom, on my saying "good evening," recognised me and replied "William is that you 1" In reply to my question is to the cause ot the assemblage just now referred to, they told me that my brothers Nicholas and John bad been arrested for the murder of Mr. Sprague, and were in the crowd I had seen. After a few minutes' conversation in the road, Downey proposed to Tatelv to turn about and accompany me to my mother s, and Tatcly somewhat reluct antly consented, and we all proceeded to the house. Wis lound there no one but my mother and my little dajghtrr. My mother was weeping, bui "?as able to converse. I proposed to go down to Mr Sprague's to see my brothers, but was told by Tatety and Downey that it would do no good, es probably they had been carried directly to Provi dence. Tately and Downey, after a lew minutes, left the house, myself, my mother, and the little girl remaining. For several minutes I paced the 'Horn, my mother and the girl being seated at the fire, but at length I took the lamp from the mantle piece, and without any motive or purpose that I can now recollert, left the room, (the kitchen) and passing into the room connecting the kitchen with the shop, tried to open the door of the shop. It proved to be fastened on the shop side, and I could not open it. I then turned and opened the door of 'he room on the right hand of the room in which f was, and on entering saw Nicholas' gun standing in the corner of the room on the right of the door. It instantly occurred to m? that as John and Ni cholas had been arrested, the house would be searched to find weapons, and that as in my own country, whete few persons, comparatively, of the poorer classes possess arms, the fi idmg ol weapons in the house of the suspected is almost enough to insure a conviction, it would be greatly to my bro thers' advantage to conceal the gun I theD, ac cording to the best of my recollection, instantly returned to the kitchen door which 1 had left partly open, and closed it ; and then taking the gun wen! up stairs with it into the gairet. Then turning to the left, l tore up the cloth carpeting between the two beds which stood there, and tried to loosen one ot the floor boards with my fingers. Failing >n this, I looked around foi some implement to aid me. and after a few minutes' search found a crooked piece of iron, with which I forced up the end ot one of the floor boards, and thrust the gun in as far as it would go The gun was not yet wholly out ol sight, and I therelore at tempted to raise the next board. In doing this I split the board, hut accomplished my purpose, as I was then able to put the gun out of sight. I then replaced the boards settling the nails in their pla ces with my boot heel, aud tanked down the car peting over them, leaving the floor in appearance Che amne as I found it. My impression is, that af ter reaching the garret, I ascertained by the ram tod that the gun was loaded ; but 1 cannot say that I recollect doing so. After this, I returned to the kitchen, where my mother and daughter still were, and there remained until nine or ten o'clock, when *r all retired to rest. Nothing was said by me to her about the gun, nor by her to me. I have no reason to believe, nor do I believe, that she either knew or suspected that there wasaguu in the house at the time. The next morning about eight o'clock, on going to the kitchen closet tor some purpos-- not now ve collfctrd, 1 lound lying upon the upper shelf a small pocket pibtol, which I knew to be Nicholas', as I had often seen it in his possession. This 1 imme diately took up, and for the same reason which had actuated mem concealing the gun,proceeded forth with to secrete 1 went up stairs with it, and on looking roand for a fit hiding place, noticed the hole in the floor through which the stove pipe from the shop passed. I perceived that between tha joists under the garret floor was a cavity, and tuto that 1 put the pistol, pushing i' in as far as I could wjtli a slick about a yard long. I said nothing to my mother or any one el?e at the time about the pintol. About nine or ten o'clock the same morning (Tuesday) 1 started from home for the jail, to nee tny brothers, intending to acquaint them with my proceedings in relation to the aun and pistol; but on reaching the jail was denied access to them, and thereupon set off for home. On the road home, and when within about a hundred yards of Mr Sprague's house, 1 whs met by the sheriff and his posse, who arrested me and committed me to jail. There I was kept secluded from communication with any one but the officers of the prison for eight or nine days, when Mr Knowlrs was per mitted to see me preparatory to the examination which was to be had the next day. My brothers 1 did not see until I met them in the jailer's office in presence of the examining magistrate; and there I once attempted to speak with Nicholas, to inform him of the facts above stated, but was checked by the officers in attendance, and constrained to re move to a distance from htm. I cannot now recollect when I communicated these facts to my brothers John and Nicholas. 1 do not recollect that I ever stated them to Nicholas. Until 1 had been tried and discharged, I never had ,m opportunity to converse with him. To John 1 communicated them while our trial was in pro gress in the Courtroom. Neither John nor I com municated them to the counsel in the cusc. 1 dared not disclose them, for F felt assured that thpy would be regarded as evidence ot my guilt; |snd John retrained from disclosing them because tn ihoiight with me, that to disclose theni would ensure my conviction. He was, however, nor un mindful that the production of the gun and pistol miRhi have saved hun from conviction; and when the verdict of guilty was rendered agninri htm, lie n,ioke, as I believe, his honest opinion when he said to me as he resumed his seat, " It is you. William, that hare hung me"?a remark ho [ well warranted by the lacts, and so accordant with | my own views at the moment, that it deprived me , for many minutes of all self control, and reduced ' me, as all present will recollect, for a time, to n | stRte of infantile hel| lessness, both intellectually and physically. I had, previous to being put upon trial, hoped and believed that Nicholas would be first tried and in 'hat case intended todivulae these facts; and with reference to this, had on all occasions urged the counsel of Nicholas to ar-ange that he be tried first, telling him in general terms that I could put Nicholas in possession ol facts that would clear him But it was so ordered, that 1 was first tried with my brother John; and up to the termination of that trial, to no person but to John had 1 ever communicated my knowledge respecting the gun and the pistol. I was acquitted, but mv brother was found guil ty. My brother, impressed with the belief, and 1 sharing it, that had 1 disclosed the tacts known to me, he would have been acquitted also. I wonder not that weeks and months afterwards my conduct and deportment were such as l?d my counsel and my friends to lend but an inattentive ear to my communications; to regard me, ae some did, as a man of disordered intellect. My conscience was burthened, not with any secret connected with the murder of Mr. Sprugue, for of that dark deed I know nothing ; but wuh the secret, that evidence which, as I view the c-se, might have saved a be loved brother from the gallows, had been by me selfishly suppressed,even while that more generous brother sat beside ine, acquainted with the same tacts, yet, for my sake, withholding them. That I was at times almost frantic, I find no difficulty in believing. A few days after my acquittal, availing myaell of the temporary absence from home of my mother and sister, I took the gun from its hiding place and drew the charge. It was loaded with powder and shot. 1 then put it back in the cavity, and there it remained undisturbed, until last fall, when I ex hibited it to a Mr. Matthewson and n Mr. Chapman, as will appear hereafter. Shortly after this I drew the pistol out of the place where I had put it, and laid it iu Nicholas' trunk, down stairs, whcTe it re mained unseen so far as I know, until within a few days, w hen I showed it to Mr. John Devlin, ot Pawtucket. I cannot say that I ever stated to any of the counsel of myeelf or my brothers, that I knew augtit of the gun or pistol. My belief is that I ne ver did to anv of them, excepting Mr. Rogers, say that I knew where Nicholas' gun was. i had, how ever, up to a very recent period, a full belief that the facts were Known, both to Mr. Curry and to General Carpentr*; iiiu;, therefore, when a few days before Nicho is' f in! I was asked by Mr Rogers if I ki.e? ? n re Nicholas'gun we8, I told him I did, and ai'o. d, * M r. Carpenter will tell yau the whole," I not ilouh it a that I should be called on when the Couri sat to p'uduce the gun and pis tol, and testify in ri g ird to tP- m Under this im pression I attended ;?e Co in front day to day expecting to be call d But unfortunately it so happened that when i w e called (as 1 am*inlormed 1 was) I wis slu-eni; and the counsel, it appears, did not ibem my testimony of sufficient importance to send lor me, or to call me, the next day. It serin, that liiey knew not that I could give any informaiinii about ihe gun or pistol?that 1 had been in error iu <-upp.-ing them advised of my knowledge. My f.n iiur's case went to the jury; my testimony not b for them. Fortunately lor my future peace that j i y did not convict. But there was still olcib.ou for the deepest sorrow and regret. Upon Hie trial ol Nicholas I had been led te believe depended in some degree the fate of John. Could Nicholas have been acquitted, John might escape 'he p*1 lows. But Nicholas not acquitted, would John b reprieved 1 Again I was almost wild with at gu el, anrl dee; air. On the day of the dismissal of the Jury bv whirl Nicholas was tried, while riding on the Johnet< i road with two acquaintances, we overtook tw< men on foot, one of whom I recognized as one < the Jury. We entered into a conversation which continued until we arrived near Dyer's Bridge wHpn the m-n above referred to (whom 1 have since learned is named Matthewson) requested some one of us acquainted with the ground to ac c. tnpanv him and his companion over it, to point out the several localities referred to on the late trial. 1 offered ts accompany them,and according ly went with them over the fields to the spot of the murder, and on the driftway over Hawkins' Hole. Mr. Mathewson. shortly after crossing ihe bridge at Hawkins' Hole, eypressed his opinion that John could not have committed the murder; but added, that he did think Nicholas must havr known something about it. In the course of his remarks he said, in effect, that the gnu with which ihe murder was committed was Nicholas'gun This remark brought freshly to my recollection my own position with regard to the gun and pistol, and my anguish of heart sought relief in tears. I however retained sufficient sell command to sny to htm that the gun found and produced in couri was not Nicholas' gun. This declaration seemed 'o arouse him, and he, with some warmth, pro ceeded to recapitulate the evidence given at the tri?l in regard to the ownership of the gun; ask ng in conclusion, and in a triumphant tone, " it 'he gun produced in court was not Nicholas' gun, where is the gun which he ownpd to Dr. Cleve land he bought at Almv'sV' Under the influence of sorrow and remorse, 1 answered him that I knew where it was, and could show it to him it he would go to the house He and his companion at once agreed to go, and to the house we went. I took the gentlemen up itaire. and, removing the carpet and lifting the board, drew from its hiding place the gun, a halt stocked gun, with percussion lock, iroutrimmings, and a small bore, the only gun of that description -which, to my knowledge, my brother Nicholas evei possessed. He had formerly a mnsket gun, which he gave to a Mrs Mulloy, on her depar ture for the west ; but of fowling guns with per cussion lock, I never saw any other thun this in my brother's hands or house. In reply to the questions ot Mr. Mathewson, 1 stated why I secre ted the gun, and when; and why I did not divulge the facts on my trial. I offered also to show Mr. Mathewson the pistol which was below stairs; but I understood him to say?" no matter about it," or something to that effect. I believe I re quested Mr. Mathewson to keep my communi cation secret. Mr. Mathewson told me that my testimony would be very important to Nicholaa in his next trial, and that 1 must not fail then tQ ap pear with :he gun and the pietol This advice coin cided with my own views, and I determined to say nothing more about the the matter until Nicholas should be again tried. I was induced to believe by what I heard from my friends and acquaintances, that John would be reprieved by the Legislature until after Nicholaa should he again tried; and, therefore, still trusted that I should be able by stating the facts within my knowledge, to save ihe life of my brotner John. Hut the Legislature de nied to John the reprieve he asked, and again 1 be came the prey!of remorse. Although since my oonvereation with Mr. Ma thewson, (who laughed at my (ears and assured me that I could not again be arrested and tried,) I bad n?t, as waaprevioualy the case, been deterred from speaking freely, by a dread of bringing upon myselt another prosecutiou, I do not recollect that I again mentioned the fact of my having the gun to any one, until L-' Thursday On that day, be ing at work in the eh >0 with my employer, Patrick Hrennan, 1, rcfl rung on the fate of my brother John, remarked t.. Mr Brennao that it was hard that John should be hong upon the proof agstnst him, when I had Nicholas'g in in my keeping all the while. Mr. Brtnnan lrninediateiy asaed if it was true that I had ti ? cun ; nod on assuring him it was, he reproved me in vrti severe terms foi having omitted to disef ee th? f (ct long ago, and instantly went to commit mate the intelli gence to a neighbor. Mr. L< wis Devlin. In a few minutes Mr. Hrennan returned, accompH medfcy Mr. Devlm.when thev questioned me par ueularly about ihe facts; aid on iny narrating them substantially as here given, thev un'ted in denouncing my conduct as higl l> t alp* hie, but finally admittee that as it seemed ! bad believed myself liable to be again tried, even *i er my ac quittal, 1 was not so unpardonahly bl.tiwlile as 1 at first appeared. Mr. Devlin, as I em inlorm'd, immediately acquainted his brother, Joho 1) vim, ot Pawturket, with these tacts, and in ih> af'ir noon of Thursday, he, John Devlin, cal ? d >n up me, and after hearing my statement, insisted r.n my going with him to Cranston, and shown g h ri the gun and pistol.

Thar I was one of the jurors emnannelled in the case of the State vs Nicholas S Gordon, charged hh the lnsiiaator of, and aa acceesory to the mur der of the late Mr Amasn Sprague, at the last September term of the Supreme Court; that niter the termination of the trial of said Nicho las and the dismissal of the jury, feeling a strong desire to see the scene of the murder, and the neighboring grounds, I determined to visit the ground as 1 re turned to my home, being c bliged to travel about a mile out of my way to accomplish my purpose?that accordingly, on the day of mv dis missal by the Court, in company with Mr. Lewis Chapman, a young man then in my employ, whom I found in Oloeyville, 1 proceeded towards the said scene of the murder, taking the Johnston road, and that, while on the Johnston reed, when about half a mile from Fenner's tav-rn, we we re overtaken by a wagon containing ihr> e men, one of whom I.recognized as William Gomou, a brother of the said Nicholas, >vuh whom 1 enured into conversation, which continued until we reach ed Dyer's bridge. And further 1 declare and say that on arriving at said bridge I requested that some one of the three would accompany me and Mr. Chapman over the grounds, to point out to us the several places and objects referred to in the trial, and that the said William Goidon complied, and with us traversed the fields from that place round to the spot of the murder, and from thence to the bridge over Haw kins' Hole, and up the driftway towards the Gor don house. That a few minutes after crossing the bridge, 1 in the course of conversation expressed my opinioL that John Gordon could not possibly have been guilty of the murder ; hut as to Nicholas, I c-u'd uot speak so positively ; there were some str ? circumstances against him?such as owning the nun with which unquestionably the deed was o<-n?. Arc , <Vco. 1 noticed that when I made mention of ihe gun, William seemed much affected, e.en shedding tears, and,|after a minute or two, said, in i positive tone, it was not Nicholas' gun that was used in the perpetration of the crime and ass pro duced in court. I then told him it had been i rr-ved io be Nicholas' gun; for Nicholas told Dr Cleve land that he had agun, which he boughtat Almy's auction ; and the negro Francis had sworn that the gun in court was ihe one he left with Almy to oi-ll. The said William, deeply affected, reiterated his denial, and when 1, continuing to argue upon itie evidence, asked him where Nicholas' gun was that he bought of Almy, he said he knew where it was, and would show it to me if 1 would go to the house. To ibis 1 readily assented, and in company with said William and said Chapman proceeded to the Gordon house. William leading us imme diately to the upper story, and proceeding to re move a piece of cloth carpeting frem the floor, and then a piece of the flooring boards. From the ca vity thus opened he took out a gun, rather short, with a small bore, a percussion lock, and half stock* d, somewhat rustv, witli iron trimmings, declaring that that was Nicholas' gun, that he put it there on the evening of the day that Nicholas and John were arrested, taking it Irom the small room below. He said, also, that the reason ot his secreting the gun was that in his own countiy the bare possession of a guu was a crime, and know ing that his brothers had been arrested he feared that the finding of a gun in the house would be dis advantageous to them. On my enquiring why he had not disclosed this factbefore. he said that after he was himself ar efeteri on the day following, he teared to do so, lest t should prejudice his case The said William also <nd that he had never shown the gun to any one voce its secretion until this time, and it is my int ension that he requested me not to disclose the ?>c p he had communicated.
