William fcmt. AN IMPORTANT LIBEL SUIT, Growing out of the Delaware Trials for Murder. Mite kill Sanford. a Cautuellor at Law, t'?. Thomas JL l)evyr, an editor of a paper at Albany. This suit came ou to be tried before the Circuit Court, the lion. Aniasa J. Parker presiding, at CatskiU, on the 11th and I'lth ofMay. Hobtrt I). Watson,of Album , wan counsel for the defendant, and tho defendant, also, himself was permitted to address theJury J. Tremaino, Mitchell Sanlord, in person, and Malbohe Walton, were counsel for the plaintiff. The charge made against counsellor Sand ford, by the editor, was, in substance, that " he was 1 an unsafe, unfit, and unreliable counsel ; and that he abandoned and sacrificed the rights and interests of hit client, John Van Steenburgh, who was tried and convict ed of murder in Delaware county." The whole of the evi dence given in the case of Van Steenburgh was introduced as part of the testimony in this case. A lawyer by the name of Stanton; was introduced, who testified that tho reputation of Air. Sanford was, that ho was an unsafe couusel. Upon being cross-examinod with regard to who had said Mr. 8. was an unsafe counsel, he testified that lawyers Trem&in, Powers, Day, Pruyn, Van Vleck, and Malbone Watson, had said so. Three or four counsel were sworn, who testified to about tho samo thing. K. S. Kdgorton, who figured so conspicuously as a witness in the trial of Van Steenburgh, was sworn on this trial. He testified, that the Hon. Mr. Sanford did not apply to have the causc of Van Steenburgh put over to another circuit, nor yet a stay of proceedings, with a view to havo the trial changed to another county; that the excitement was great against all of the prisoners at Delhi. Mr. H. D. Watson opened tho cause to the Jury, on the part of the defence ; and, in summing up the cause, pre sented twelve strong points of law. He presented the case with great clearness and ability. Ho is a young man of a high order of legal ability. Ho exhibited u perfect fami liarity with the statutes. The points of law (some of which arc lielow) ho pre sented, we have 110 doubt will be reviewed by the Su preme Court, and )>erhaps by the Court of Errors. A bill of exception*, with a view to carry the cause up to a higher court, wo understand it bei'tg made by Mr. Wat son. The question of law presented in the 2d point of law below, by Mr. Watson, It beyond all question tho true law of tlio land. Kor, as was well urged by Mr. Watson, by the language of the Hth section of tho act of 1845, called " tho disguise act," any person convicted of being disguised with offensive weapons, or, for any other misdemeanor, Khali be imprisoned in jail, or fined, or imprisoned in the State prison ; and, at in tho revised statutes, the word " felony" is defined to be an act for which a man shall be sent to the Stale prison ; therefoio being assembled in ditguise, may, or may not be a felony, according as it is punishable in the State prison or not ; and if it 1* not a lolony, then Van Steenburgh was guilty only of manslaughter. Mr. 11. D. Watson requctted tho Court to charge the jury as follows :? 1st. That whilo Counsellor Sanford might admit that a Mr. Steele was killed in Delaware, yet that in admitting that a murder had been committed, when, so far as hit clicnt was concerncd, it was manslaughter, he endanger ed the life of Van Steenburgh, when he should not have admitted any tiling more with regard to his client than manslaughter. 3d. That if by the 7th lection of the act of 1845, being assembled and in disguise, wat by the act itself made a miidemeunor and not felony, and if not felony, then Van Steenburgh wat guilty of mantlaughter, and not of mur der. 3d. At from the evidence, it docs not appear that Van Steenburgh shot or went to the place where Steele was killed, with the intent to kill, although Steele was killed by some one unknown, yet 110 " sale, reliable or fit coun sel," should have admitted that as to Van 8tecnburgh it was murder, but manslaughter. 4th. As persons assembled us Van Steenburgh, might or might not have been guilty of a felony, though a death ensued at that time, yet no murder could havo been made out against him under the law of 1843, or any other law, and 110 counsel should have admitted murder. 5th. As the excitement in Delhi was so great that no impartial trial of Van Steenburgh could be had beloie a jury, 110 man could have been a safe, fit or reliable coun sel, who did not move to have the trial of Van Steen burgh postponed, or who did not get a stay of proceed ings with a view to apply to tho Supreme Court to have the trial changed to a county where an impartial trial might be had. Oth. As the verdict of the jury, of murder, in the case of Van Steenburgh, was contrary to law, or to say the least at there was great doubt about the law, a safe coun sel should have obtained a stay of proceedings with a view to obtain a new trial when tho excitement had pass ed away, aud when an impartial trial might be had. 7th. As from tho evidence before the jury, it appears that the distress warrant under which Steolc acted was issued without the affidavit of the landlord, or her agent, or receiver, and at the law requires this, those who acted under the warrant were trespassers; anil although Steele was killed, yet to far as Van Steenburgh wat concerned, it was only manslaughter. Hth. Tho witneat, Lawyer Stanton, testifies that law yers Power*, Day, Pruy-n, Van Vleck say, that the reputa tion of Mitchel Sanford is, that he it an unsafe lawyer, and as the whole of the evidence on this point goes to show thit, and as the opposito tide have not brought for ward these men to contradict this, it it in evidence that all of theae lawyers, Powers, Day, Pruyn and Van Vleck, concur, ttiat the general reputation of Mr. Sanford, as a lawyer, is, that he is an unsafe, unfit and unreliable coun sel, and that the defence, therefore, havo made out their case. 9th. That from the evidence and the whole case, the alleged libellous matter wat nothing more than a fair cri ticism on the part of Mr. Devyr, at editor, and simply do. ing his duty with regard to tho conduct of the Hon. Mr. Sanford, ou the trial of Van Steenburgh. 10th. At those who lived upon leated land were reject ed by the triors at juror* in the case of Van Steenburgh, at appear* by the evidence of Mr. Edgerton, and a* ]>er sons were on that jury who hail stated that all of the men who were at the place where Steele fell, were guilty of murder, any safe and reliable counsel could and would havo obtained a new trial on that and other grounds. 11th. In not allowing, on the trial of Van Steenburgh, witnesses to be sworn who would testify that Steclo fired first. Mr. S. committed a great error. 13th. As on the cross-examination of Kdgerton, he tes tified ho thinks that Steele fired first, Mr. banford should have urged that Van Steenburgh wat guilty of man slaughter. The Court refused so to charge in most instances, and the jury brought in a verdict of *500. Supreme Court.

Benjamin Tiii'iimkm sworn.?I reside in Greene; 1 wll one of those who found Mrs. Burdick; I was in the wagon with Mr. Johnson when he was taking her to Mr. Hum- 1 monJ's; he did not drive as last as he was requested to; hejiropoted to carry her directly to his own house. The prosecution rests here. The defence was opened by Senator Dickinson, in a very clear and able manner; and, did space permit, an outline of it would he gladly given, lie adverted to the dreamy anil delusive character of the evidence which had already been received?to the improbabilities which it presented?stated the points upou which the prosecu tion relied, the proofs by which they were sustumed, and the testimony which would bo arrayed against thorn. The defendant would show that he was at his home in Greeno the night Mrs. Bolt disappeared, instead of being in Tri- j angle, and that lie could not liavo been at the house of | Mrs. Baxter at the time it had been sworn the bones were burned there. He would show, too, tlint the statement* of Mrs. Burdick were contradictory anil inconsistent with each othor. When he had done this, it being then appa rent to every one that her statement was the mere fiction of a deranged mind, ho should auk for a verdict of acquit tal. The first evidence on the part of the defendant con sisted of two affidavit*, one made before Ksquire Lewis, the other before Judge Judson. Copies of these instru ments, (obtained through the politeness of defendant's counsel,) will be given with the other testimony. Lyman D. Lkwis sworn.?1 am Justice of the Peace, and reside in CJroene. I took Mrs. Burdick's affida vit oil tho 7th October, 1845. 1 took her relation of the abduction, wrote it down, read it over carefully to her, and then she sworo to it. She appeared to be rational at tho time; l)r. Willard and her husband were each present a part of the time she was deposing. Tho affidavit pro duced is the one she swore to; she did not sign it, because she was sick and could not do so. It was made a few days after the abduction. [This witness proved tho deposition of Louisa Bolt, made at Oreen last fall. Parts of HDk will be read for the pur pose of contradicting what she has iworn in tlUs court] Mrs. Baxtk.u Bworn ?I am the mother erMn. Anne A. Burdick; live in Greene, and know the prisoner; he has i never ottered or proposed to marry me; nothing was ever I said between us about ins destroying his wife; there hus not been any conversation between us as to the manner in which Mrs. Bolt was destroyed. I saw Johnson the Sunday before the abduction; as late as ti o'cleck, P. M., in the road in front of my house; I asked him where my son Charles should go and chop me some wcod; ho told mo where; this was all the conversation I had with him that day; my sou John, living with Johnson, was in the road talking with him whenl went to tho door; after this conversation, my son went down to Mr. Johnson's, and tho latter went up towards Van Nostrand'i; I was at Hi ram JoLnson's on the following Tuesday; 1 went there between 10 and 11 o'clock A. M., to cut and make a pair of pantaloons for him; I left there not far from sunset; I rode back with tho prisoner; Anne Augusta had a lit when 1 lived iii Sniithvillc; she had them for several days; at last she said she had been to hoavcu. and had seen her brother, who had recently died, and talked with her Sa vior; that her brother wished her to come back to the earth, and she did not want to do it. He told her that she must do so; must come and finish her work and warn her friends. She prayed, and kissed tho Bible, and said a great many things; afterwards, in the same sickness, she requested her brother Charles to place a tumbler of wa ter on the steps, and in the course of a bright star which he would.sec; he did so, and then she wantod to be led to the steps to drink the water; we told her that it was damp and that it wax not prudent that she should go there; she insisted, and Charles and Goorge Kctchum led her there, and she drank the water. Cross-examinrd.?My husband has been dead seven years; he died in the street about ten o'clock in the morning, alter having oaten his breakfast as usual t I cannot say how long after breakfast was his death ; something was said about opening his stomach to learn the cause of his death, and I objected to it; when I went to live in the red house near Mr. Hammond's, which was in March, 1843, there was an Irish family in it ; they oc cupied one room, and I and my family the other : 1 lived with them in this manner two or three weeks; Mr. Johnson sent a writing to them, requiring them to removo from the house ; he took a crane from tlieir fireplace and put it up in mine ; this created a fuss with the Irish ; I had formerly lived in a house of Johnson's, and was still owing him for the rent of it; Johnson has never let me have any money, except filly cents, which I borrowed of him about a week before Augusta was married ; 1 have had some few provisions of him, and have paid him for them in sewing : I had not been in the habit of locking my house ; the lock was put ou cither on Saturday or Sunday, before the abduction, by my son Charles. John Baxtkh sworn.?1 am tho brother of Mrs. Bur dick, and live with the prisoner ; I was at my mother's tho Sunday night before the abduction ; Mr. Johnson found mo tnore ; he wanted mo to go and fix the fence, as Mr. Hammond's cows had broken into the meadow ; I took my mother's axe to drive the stakes, and started ; my younger brother went along to bring the axe back ; Mr. Johnson went to his farm above the house. Thomas Bishop sworn.?I reside in Greeno ; I recol lect the time of the abduction of Mrs. Burdick ; I saw her u few days after that at Mr. Hammond's ; my wife, Mr. Burdick, and some others, were there with me; I judged that she was deranged ; she was talking about every tiling ; she then said sho was carried off by Robert and Jeremiah Clinton, who live in Penn ; that they got to Greeno on Monday evening and went to JohnsoiPs ; she said one nf them?which 1 do not recollect?together with her mother, attempted to carry her off that night; that the next day they caino to Hammond's and succeed ed ; she said they were in Hammond's bam during the day; that Johnion wrote to them and sent them some money to come to Greene ; she said the bones of Mrs. Bolt wore taken from a field in Triangle, whero they were buried under a stump, and that if they bad looked closely they would have found them sooner; she said Johnson brought them lrom Triangle in a sack, carried them to his side hill, and burned them in a log heap ; she warned her husbuiitl to keep in, and that an attempt would bo made to destroy him ; she said her own life was limited to some four or six months ; I think the timo has already gone by ; her husband and I tried to mes merise her, ami he succeeded ; 1 prickod him with a pin and she started ; she was half an hour in giving the rela tion, and was in the mesmeric state all the while; I think she gave it in tho presence of her husband ; 1 put the questions at his request. * Cross-examined.?Sho was under my influonco, and would answer the questions of no other person ; she w*a? cra/.y, except when mesmerized.
