I came to th"> office ou Monday, but was obliged to return home. I again caine to the office on Tuesday. On Tu?*sd*y, or Wednesday, I met with Mr. lilnes ; he a.->?"d ma the nature of the charge against Phillips ; I told him I knew nothing about it; he laughed, and said that Phillips had been arrested, and held to bail ; 1 informed Hine* that I had heard nothing of the rat-e ; I raid, that if there had been forgery, it mui>t have occuired by some one stealing papers from tbo Tension Office, and imposing them on Phillips; it was merely a prophecy of my own, as Col. b'.dwards, the Commii-sioner. could noc know everybody at aigbt; my conTercatiou with Morgan, was to I the time effect ; I did not know whether Phillips or i StettiutUH had b>en charged with forgery ; I heard of both ; 1 will state how I came to bear of it.

Mr Faki^i-amah.?I think tasked Morgan about it.as he waspassiDg upanddown the streets doing business. Messrs Morgan and Hines were not examined It war net permitted, under a decision made by the Court y*>rtt?rriav. There was here a long pause in the proceedings- -all the witnesses summoned not being in attendance. Witnesses were called by the United States to impeach the testimony of those tor thy defenoe. Mr Bari'ch Hall sworr. Han know a Samuel G. Kneller for ten years, principally in the district; tbo?e who know him -ay that hi* gen<-ral chtrai-ter for truth is not good; would not believe him on oath; this was founded on personal knowledge. Cross-Ezatninrd.- Had heard John A. Donnho and George Stettinius, and others, so express themselves as to the reputation of Kneller; had a difficulty with R neller In lb40 or 1842, he did not threaten to whip me; heard that his character for truth was not good before the difficulty; yesterday, Donoho spoke of Kneller; George Stettinius had spoken ot the want ot veracity of Kneller frequently; beard of a quarrel between George Stettinius and Ktieller; have spoken of Kneller openly and freely; spoke of him yesterday, in Parker's store; my hostility arose from the feeling Kneller showed towards me in a business transaction. In reply to a question of Mr. Radcliffe, the witness said that the character of Kneller for truth and veracity. came to him after be had the transaction Mr BRADLKV?.DId not the difficulty between you and Kneller result from your writing a letter to a mem> Itr f Mr Kneller's family ? A r. hart'liff* objected to this question Tamri. Howlakd took the stand. He said that he bad he?rd Kneller spoken of frequently, and his truth una vernc tv doubt*d A discussion arose a? to a question propounded by Mr. Itadcliffe; finally, it was put bv the Court in this form. vlr.:--Do you know what in Kneller's general reputation T A ?His reputation, as far an I bare beard, is not good. The Col'ht.?What is bis reputation for trutb and veracity ? A ? It Is rather unfavorable. The t'oi nr.-What is it where he is best known ? A ?I don't know whore he i? best known. Q. by Mr Radclifkf.? Would you. on the reputation jou heard concerning Knvller. believe bun on lath ? A.?Taking what I heard t? be true, I don't think I would Crnsi-rraniinrd ?Can't say how often I have been in Virginia since Kneller ha* lived there Terhaps I may have been there three, four, or Ave times. During my vitits to Virginia bis characterfor truth was spoken of ; I think Dr. Locke spoke of it ; i cannot re ember any other person who spoke of it; I account for my being summoned because 1 stated to Mr Kadeliff?, that 1 beard Kneller's cnaracter wa* bad.

Mr. Ti n.-vicr desired Mr Bradley to go on, but he declined, and Mr. Hkllkn then opened for the defence. He reviewed the testimony, and endeavored to show bow utterly the prosecution had failed in their efforts to convict bis client of fraud. He said that the aocused parties hrd been concerned in upwards of five thousand oases of land warrants, and yet no man h id come forward to accuse them of fraud'' In alluding to the testimony taken before Justice Van Tyne, be spoke of ' the noise aid confusion," a quotation borrowed fmm a distinguished gentleman belonging t? a party?the a'andard bearer.

Mr. Ti-fney.?(Earne?tly.)?No. Mr. Mr Hkli.cn. after begging pardon for the allusion, resumed hie argument, and concluded. Mr llRAiiLtv said that the two preoedlng gentlemen had each occupied two hours, and he would avail himself of the same latitude, if the Court determined to conclude the case. Thk Court!?If it can be concluded by twelve o'clock Mr. Tuanr.y said that It was now eight o'clock. Mr Bradley would speak until ten o'clook, and then it would devolve upon him to speak until the midnight hour He asked the Court to adjourn over until tomorrow morning. Mr. Bhiulili expresst-d apn at anxiety to conclude the cape now: he would take but one hour, andgivo Mr. Turney three. He bad been willing to aubrnit the case without argument, but the counsel for the United States would notoonsent. Mr. Radl-ldte inquired whether ha would submit the ca?e now. Mr. Bbadlky replied in tbe negative. Mr Turkey raid that if Mr. Bradley made his speech to-night, be (Mr. Turney) would ask leave to reply tomorrow morning. Mr. Rradlky said that if tbe Court would fix an hour of adjournment to night, he would agree to it ; tut be was determined that Mr. Turney ahoald not jiave mt) rigut to renect upon itta speeon. Mr. Turi?ky.?Just an the Court please. The member* of the Court, after consulting. raid that ther teemed to be some difficulty of getting through to-iiight, and therefore, they wojld adjourn. Mr Bkadlky said that he would, rather thin not, hare the caw entiled to-night, waive the privilege to speak, and give an opportunity to do so to Mr. Turney. One of the magistrates said that he could not git here an hour longer, being unwell. Mr. Tubnkv ?What! you don't ezpeot to limit m* te an hour ? 1 won't get through In an hour, or two bourn ! (Laughter ) Thk Maoistrai k.?I'll sit here as long as I can. Mr BdADi.r.^ ?ntd that it wa< now twenty minutes pant eight o'clock, but be was willing to go on until the hour tbe Court might tlx for the adjournment. TbeCourt named nine o'clock. Mr. Bradley then commenced his argument. He stigmatized the prosecution as battelesa as any dream that ever passed over the nose of a drunkard after bis di-bauch. and said that tbe man who pursue < the a? eused now. after such testimony as hat bean offered, is beneath bin fellow men, and is a demon He spoke until Dine o'clock, and the candles baring burned down to the socket*, and there being no more within reach, an adjournment took place until to-morrow morning.at ten o'clock, when the oase will take the last jump in the cunclusion.

It appears that George Kioe was, on the Oth instant, at the races on Lonu Itland, and wbile there, between the raced, he kept the bystanders amused with a little betting game called the ' Thimble Rwhich are three little cup* turned Id wood, about the sl*o of a thimble ; the-e three cups, George placea on hia knee, which is supported by liin walking cane. piopped under to keep his lex up; th?ae cupa are kept moving backwards and forwards with much dexterity, and troui one cup to the other ia pasaed with I astonishing rapidity a sra.ill ball, composed of apiece , of bucktkin rolled up a little ieca than a pea; this ball is culled he " little joker." and beta am made by the j lookers-on. ax to which cap the " little joker " is under.
