Plaintiffs rested. Ovkrtow Caer recalled to the stand by Mr. Brad ley. I sailed in the expedition as a lieutenant un der a special commission from the President, and was afterwards appointed first lieutenant of the Vin cennes, and as such served in the expedition into f~e Antarctic. On that cruize we endured great hardship and exposure; tlie ship suffered gready] we afterwards, in the month of Sept. 1840, arrived at Oahu; while there, we were obliged to overhaul the ship completely, to break up her hold, down to, but without removing her water tanks, which were re ruled, and the whole of the steerage was moved, and the ship thoroughly cleansed and ventilated: she had then been on a long voyage in high southern lati tudes, and passed gradually, and with occasional stoppages, through the tropics to the Sandwich Is lands; of course the overhauling was very thorough; besides this her foremast had received so muchin jury that it had U> be taken out; and all the suils and rigging of the other masts were taken down or rigid ly, overhauled; the ship was also caulked antfre paired throughout; in making these repairs, although we were actively employed; we were engaged until the scientific corps had completed their surveys on shore, and were ready to embark: previous to our reaching this island, as the terms of some of the sea men, who had enlisted for only three years, were about to expire,'Capt. Wilkes mustered the men, and addressed them, complimenting them on the faith fulness with which they had discharged their duties, and informing them that as the term of enlistment of some of them was about to expire, he would, on our arrival at Honoholu, give them liberty, and in con sideration of the good conduct of all, he would ex tend the liberty to the whole ships's company; that the cruize was not yet near up. they had yet to ex plore the Northern Pacific, and he wanted the ser vices of such men in that cruize; that after their li berty was expired, he would expect all those whose term oi service was up, to re-enlist, when he would give them the bounty provided by the law, and allow them the extra pay, and he would endeavor to get extra pay for all on account of the nature and value of their services: I understood this address to be to the seamen; the marines he did not mention, otherwise than by inaluding them among those for whom he would endeavor to get increased pay; alter our arrival at Oahu the Captain went on shore and established an observatory in sight of the ship and other otiicera and men were detailed to the exe cution of the scientific objects of the cruize ; I was lett in charge of the ship with one or two other offi cers and such men ahd marines as were deemed ne cessary ; liberty was given to the men, and on their return to duty we immediately began the* overhaul ing and repairs; in this we were constantly en gaged, I keeping up a regular communication with the Captain; we lay close to the shore ; it was ne cessary to do so while we were taking out the fore mast ; we were surrounded day and night by tlie natives, some of whom almost live in the water, and employed as the men were and with the marine I guard I had. it was impossible to prevent communi cation between them and the men ; the discipline of the ship was kept up and the men kept at their duty : there.was some occasional disorder in the shape of drunkenness, of course, and men were occasionally imprisoned; the marines were the guard of the ship; on the 16th November, the plaintiffBaab, the witness Pensyl, and a marine named Smith, were reported to me by the sergeant as refusing to do duty; there was no commissioned officer of ma rines in the squadron; they were commanded by Sergeant Stearns, who was also their quarter-mas ter: he made this report to me 5 I called the men, and when they came, asked them what was their reason for thus refusing; they said their time of en listment was out and they wished to go home, and had come to the conclusion not to do duty any more ; my duty was clear; I reported to the Cap ta\? 'j l ca,ne on hoard, and 1 made my report; he called them before him, they came, and he asked what they meant by this refusal; they answered him as they had me, and he ordered them to be sent on shore to uie fort; this was done ua I have stated at hint j before thin tune n man in prison on board, un der guard of the marines in double irons, had es caped, leaving his irons in hiB place ; another had escaped from imprisonment in broad day time; another had been permitted to gat drunk while in prison, and the vigilance of the marine guard from some cause was certainly relaxed : I did not go the fort; it was not my duty ; no orders were given to deprive them of a single comfort in food or clothing; it was the duty of their Sergeant to look after this and report it to me if any thing was needed; he did not report to me on the subject. He went with them to the tort, was on shore almost every day, and might h?ve visited them in the ^fort. It was not the duty of the captain to look after this unless complaint was made to him. lie was obliged to rely ou the reports Irom the officers. I did not tlieu thiuk it safe, and my opinion now is it was not safe to keep these pri soners on board the ship; it would have been very doubtful if not improbable that they could have been kept there, situated as we then were. I do not recollect these men being brought aboard; 1 have no recollection of standing at the gangway with Capt. \? ilkes, as stated by Pensyl, nor of his having then ordered them into custody. I do recollect their being brought up the next day in irons. I well remember that Captain Wilkes then remonstrated with them, told them they had shipped for the cruise and it was his duty to detain them; that he called the Sergeant and told him to explain to the men the contract under which they had agreed to serve for the cruise ; that the Sergeant told them of it, and of the bounty they had received; they denied it. Captain Wikes told them he must detain them, that their iervices were absolutely necessary, and he must punish them if they refused to do duty; they did refuse, and were punished. He then order ed me to et them go at large among the crew, in in order that they might learn their duty by talking with their comrades, and return to it. I will not say positively that this occurred on the first day, my impression is it did occur then, I know it did at one tune, and preceding their punishment. Dinsman was sent to the fort, as I have stated in my first ex amination. He was with Baab, Pensyl, and Smith when they were punished. I have no recollection of Robert's having been punished. At the time of the punishment Captain Wilkes was calm, cool and collected. The services of these men were in my opinion essential to the cruise, especially in that part of it on which we were then entering?we had had experience of their necessity, particularly in the l-ejee Islands, in which we lost valuable officers by the attacks of the natives. The countries we were about to visit were peopled by a still more ferocious race, and provided with better means of offence. As to vermin I have reason to believe, and do belisve, there were none on these men when they came on board Irom the fort. My reasons are these: It was the duty of the Sergeant of Marines, acting as quarter master, to report to me regularly the condition of the men, clothing, and their state of cleanlines. This I was necessary to their health. He was particularly | instructed on this matter of vermin, and I have rea son to believe he was faithful in that particular. I am confident and positive that there was but one in stance of this Jkind during the whole cruize, and it was not in regard to these men, or either of them. It, therefore, could scarcely have been iwssible for them to have them without my knowing it, besides their clothes were regularly and publicly overhauled. I did not observe that these men exhibited any to ken of having suffered in their health during their confinement. They might have been confined on hoard the ship as I have stated, if we had known who to trust. Cro$*-cxa>nin?d,?Vincennes; live or six sci entific; four lieutenants; six 'midshipmen and passed^ complement of sloop of war. I have sailed 111 sloop of war with 12 and with 18; larger marine guard than was customary; had manacles ol imprisonment; never sailed in a vessel so situa ted ; can t say it was not possible to keep tlieni on board; we might have called the olHcers and armed them; a single man is sufficient to guard a man in irons; the natives inoffensive, unarmed, without means to rescue men; the discipline of the ship and the authority of its officers were not relaxed; there was a great deal of drunkenness on board, but that w as not from any indulgence on the part of the offi cers; the shin was so situated that wo could not prevent it; 1 shoukl be sorry to think there were not 5?""?a" ?ra?y as natives to guard the men ; irons and sufficient guard could have kept the men, but the guard did not do their duty; the sergeant was ashore every day; 1 do not know what he was doing, he was under the command of thf1 captain ? the marine guard did not do their duty; we don't clow- the ports in that climate; 1 should say it wou'd make it more of a prison than the fort on the island ? the clOBing ofbne port would not have made any material difference: with the means and men we had on hoard, we could, and ought to have kept them I have said that a man esca^d from prmon; another got drunk, and I could not prevent it; this continued all the time the vessel Jaid in that condition; if wn hud drawn the ship,out in the outerport, it would not hive been safe, with the foremast out; it was neces sary to lie where we were; the commander permit ted the men to go ashore, and if they got drunk we look no notice of itj the same causes existed for Lifiw?

The 6th came on the Sabbath; 1 saw no man whipped that day; 1 have no recollection of see ing a man whipped on shipboard on Sunday; it is an unusal thing; I did not hear defendant say he would take the responsibility; what he might have said I did not hear?it did not occur in my hearing; I never heard him make such statement. Lieut. H. Eld sworn.?I was with the Exploring Expedition, as a Passed Midshipman, most of the cruise. I came home as Master of the Vinceniies; I was with her at Oahu, in September, October, and November, 1840, and on shore at the observatory? the observatory was a place erected for astronomical and magnetical observations, established by the commander. My duty at Oahu was partly civil, part ly military, or, rather, it was'civilduty, under military law. I was inside the fort; it was used an a place of confinement for refractory seamen from merchant ships; 1 do not know of seamen being shipped from the fort; I was not on board when the men were sent to prison; I was not often on board while the ship lay at die island; I have a general knowledge of the condition of the Vincennes at Oahu: she was pretty much the same as a ship overhauled?the hold turn ed inside out, and the casks brought out on deck; it would not have been safe or comfortable to have con fined the prisoners on board; they were much more comfortable on shore. 1 was oil board ship when she sailed; I do not recollect seeing the plaintiff's brought on board; saw them, on the 7th December, brought up the gangway; the Captain remonstrated with them, ana toTd them to resume their duty. They refused. I can't remember the language ot the Captain, but he said in effect he was sorry to whip them, yet that necessity compelled him, if they did not do their duty. They were whipped twice, perhaps three times: cannot think it possible to have occurred on Sunday. Nothing is more unusual than to whip a sailor on Sunday. We may sometimes give them a half dozen, or so. over the coat; no use of the "cats" is made on Sunday. We sailed from Oahua to theNorthwest coast; we had not too many marines; detached scientific parties going on shore^ always had an escort of marines ; we had formed five as a guard at the observatory; frequently a strong force of marines was required in the scien tific excursions on land. Crou examined by Mr. May?I lived on shore while the men were at the fort; did not see men from merchant vessels confined in the fort; it was possible that the ship's prisoners could not be detain ed, but not probable ; it is my opinion the fort was more comfortable for the prisoners than the ship; I did not go into the cells, but saw they were open, airy, ana quite comfortable; it is the custom to make entries in the log book of the whippings inflicted, and the number of stripes is always specified. The log book was here referred to in proof that it is the custom to record the floggings inflicted on board ship. Mr. Bradley?does me case to which you are re ferring. relate to these men 1 Mr. May?No, Sir; it is referred to as a proof of the " regulations in the service ; and I wish to show by it, that while the custom was adhered to in the record of other cases of flogging, in the case of these men the transaction was not entered upon the book. [After some controversy between Messrs. May and Bradley, upon this collateral issue, the reference in question was ruled out by the Court.] CapL Edclin?Wat Captain of Marine* attacked to Exploring Expedition, from May, 1837, to June, 1838: in October, 1837, I was on board the Macedonian, in New York; the (hipping article*, or contract of the marine* [marked A] was prepared on board that ihip and handed to hint; he caused it to be read diitinctly to the marines on board the ship, and explained it to them; among them was Owen Roberts; and after it was read, it was signed by Roberts in hU presence, and witnessed by him; the paper was then given to Purser Dunn, and witness does not know what became of it afterwards. The Captain of the ship has the caro of the shipping articles of the men: but the marine officer has charge of the marines, and his evidence was a list from the Adjutant'*) office of the corps. 1 am clear, distinct and positive that 1 ex plained these sirticles to the men, and that they under stood they were to serve (during the cruise, if it should last twenty years. I did not give the men liberty mo ney; liberty money is always part of their pay. J pro mised, and they received, bounty, according to these articles, for this special service, under the orders of the commander of the squadron, and,l saw the bounty paid to ami received by those whose signatures 1 have witnessed. I did not sail with the expedition; there was no commis sioned officer of marine on that expedition; they were commanded by a leigeam, Mr. Rowam says he was first Lieutenant of the lUTIeT at the time of the shipment of the plaintiffs for the cruise, in October, 1837. The expedition had than been formed for a year, and so much of the term of service of the men had expired. It was therefore deemed expedient to enlarge the time'of service, and for that purpose new shipping articles were prepared. These were seut to the several ships, and on board the Relief a general or der from Commander Jones was read to the men, and af terwards, the plaintiffs, Baab and Dinsmore, signed them in my presence. I dont recollect the fact of their having signed them, but their names are in my handwriting, and witnessed by me; 1 do not recollect that they were read over or explained to them at the time; but it is my uni form practice to ask the men if they understand the arti cles; and if they say no, to read them over carefully to them. If they say yes, their signatures would be taken at once. I have no recollection of what was done in this installed. If the articles differed from the general order of Commodore Jones, I would not hare thought it my duty to go farther than to ask the men whether they knew what they were signing?that was their business. If they said yes, 1 would hare taken their signatures without giving any explanation. If they said no, I would have lead them over?not otherwise. If the Commodore chose to change his orders, it would not have made any difference in my practice. Mr. Purser Dc** testified a? to the payment of the bounty money. Mr.Pi'RSER SruEDEN re-examined.?I was on board ship at Oahu in September, 1840; was of the crew of the Peacock; I recollect the Itime the Vincennes was undergoing repairs; 1 Uvea on shore: I was in side the walls of the fort several times; the area of the fort was very extensive; there was a good deal of spare ground; und there was a row of shantees along the wall inside to cover the prisoners from the sun; 1 was in the shantees; I conversed with at least one person sitting in the shade of one of the shanties?he was a prisoner from the crew of the Peacock; I only know lrom hearsay that men from merchant vessels were kept as prisoners in the fort; the fort had a wall made of coral; it may have been of earth and straw, but I am of the impression that the wall was of coral; the fort was on u level, it was very large, holding frequently five or six hundred KanaAaas, or islana ders; the Governors residence was inside the fort; have no recollection of any cells in the fort; do not know what cells are; there were shanties in the fort but no cells; the entrance to the fort was guarded at two gates, one fronting the sea, the other the town; guards were stationed there on the walls; the walls were, perhaps, 12 or 15 feet high; 1 should think about 12; the shanties were decidedly more comfort able than the ship; 1 remarked to Sutton, a prisoner in one of the shanties, that he was very comfortable sitting there in the shade, while his shipmate* were toiling in the sun scraping the decks; I was not on boardthe Vincenne*.

The Porpoise was there purt ot the time; she was also one of the exploring squadron. tjurntion by >Ir May.?Was not the Peacock in , a condition to hold four marines as prisoners at the time 1 Mr. Bradley objected, and appealed to the court. Mr. May wns sustained in his question as relevant to the testimony. Witness.?The Peacock could have confined four marines, or more than that number at one time under charge of the sentry, on board. Had more thiin that number at one time Vw*?/toM by Mr. May.?Which was the nearest, the fort on the shore or the Peacock, to the Vin cennes 1 Anttce.?The Peacock. If the Vincennes had on her guard, she ought to have been able to confine four prisoners. 1 am of opinion that u ship which could not so take charge of her own prisoners, ought not to be in commission.? 1 know the plaintiffs; knew them on hoard other ships: they were orderly and re spectable sailors; Dinsman was particularly clever; there are various ways of making prisoner* safe on shipboard, even without a guard, so that they can't get nway unless they pull the deck off with tliem ; 1 have been in the foii at Oahu ; only once on duty ; on the occasion of the imprisonment of one of the Peacock's crew, for some disturbance in the town : the fort is not a very clean place ; walked inside very lightly; place of confinement of all sorts of prisoners, strumpets, nnd-eo-fortli; a verv dirty place ; men from ships confined tlieic were likely to bring vermin on board ship; did not think it a fit place for a seaman, and brought one away myself, by command of the Executive officer ol the Pea cock ; do not know that these men were in the fort at the time * it ia customary to allow rations, or mo ney for them in lieu thereof", on hoard ship ; under cover should suppose the fort was not dry, being composed of coral, and very porous, and down on the point, not six feet above the level of the sea ? 1 was acquainted with the food called taro ?

The otficers messed on shore^ don t recollect of the men messing on shore but officers and men messed on shore according to leave to do so; did not remember of any prisoner escaping from the Peacock : men had escaped ; a prisoner at large might possibly escape : prisoners confined on board ship invariably got drunk; they have liquor carried in their food Ky their mesmates; do not re collect of bringing but one prisoner from the fort ? here were othern, however, brought out from time to time; knew button: he was neither a seaman nor a marine, but a landsman. [Mr. May objected to this part of the testimony, and it was 'dropped. Mr. Bradley asked if Mr. Blair knew ot any fracas between the sentry and marines on board the ship le acock at Oahu ?] Witness did not recollect: but these fracas were of common occurrence : did not recollect particularly the case of Riley, tried bv a court martial: it was a proof of the good discipline of the Peacock that the court martiafs were held on board ofher; the prisoner brought from the fort to the Peacock had been confined in a cell under the governor s house; there were othercells opposite not so secure ; the ground under shelter in tlieibrt must nave been damp, from its coral, porous nature* it rained frequently on the island ; almost every day m the evening the clouds would gather round the mountains and come over the town in a shower of ram; besides there was the rainy season; witness detailed the process of breaking up the ship and overhauling ; did not see Sutton at the fort; liberty was given to the men in the early part of the dav to go on shore ; Mr. Blair was further interrogated and replied with much promptitude and intelligence as to the minutie of the government and duties of men on board ship, the manner of confining pri soners, die. ?"Kg Quettioiis{by .Mr. May?Witness answered, cer tainly sir; I could have undertaken to guard five prisoners on board the Peacock, under irons, and Uiought nothing of it: we couldjhave kept the natives from the ship perfectly easy.^but we let thera come on board.
