Ihe truth is, that for a very considerable number of {ears the successful candidate for the Presidential chair as bad to look to foreign politics as bis passport to place and power. On intei nal questions publio opinion in America is now so much c ivided that to giro a decided I adhesion to any party is to rouse the most furieu* epposi- I tlon from every other: but a popular commander like Jack- j son, Harrison or Taylor, or a poison identified with some gieat external movement, as lir. Polk was with the aa- ! nexatlun of Texas, can unite parties dlsegreeing cn in- | ternal politics and find In the cry of war or anu?xation a rallying point which no merely tniernul question can I ive him. Tba ministry of General fierce was formed ? n the principle of annexing Cuba and giving the fuflest (evelopement to that quasiionabie spirit of enterprise which has extended Itself so nnofc during late yews among the more unsettled classes of the United States. His Presidency is now drawing to a close, and nothing ban been done rowai ds realizing the flaming professions with which it was inaugurated. If the game is not to be given up wholly Tor lost, the few months that remain must be diligently employed, for the government of Mr. Pierce is discredited, and, unless something can be done to reanimate popular enthusiasm in his favor, ha stands no chance of re-election. Surely, ooe of the main objects of popular institution! Is to secure a perfect sympathy between tbe governor and the governed, so that, while Kings and Queens are plotting for their own dynastic interests, the chief magistrate of a republic may hare no end in view but tbe renown of his own administration and the public good. Hut bow can tliis be accouipKsliod, if from the be ginning to the end of bis quadrennial term of ofllco the Treeident is to be thinking of nothing else but how be can somanage that office as to procure bis re-eiection for another four year*r It was not tor the sake of giving 1dm tbe opportunity of an advantageous canvass, but for the gvneral good of the State, that the American people elected tbeir Preddunt, and that trust is as much be trayed if it he bai teredaway for populur suffrages as if it Were sold under tbe most vulgar and open conditions of venality. It would be really well worth considering in the in orests of peace and amity with all tbo world, in tbe preservation of which no community is more deeply concerned than the United S atea, whether it might not be Well to take away this temptation to foreign ag gression tor electioneeilug purposes from tnture Presi dents and Caliinetg by disqualifying the existing Presi dent and bis ministers from being canrid&te* for their offices at the next clec'lon. The secret has been found out, that it is by foieign wars or foreigu disputes that a maj< rity of votes is to be obtaintd. and that so l >ng as the t listing President is also an embryo candidate wars or disputes ate sure to lie provided to order, and supplied In quick succcetion, so !< ng as I he demand continues. We turn fti.m this painful exhtliiiion of waut in and isrrowuiiiided selfishness, this sporting with the welfare of twe great na'ions, to tbe more agreeable contempla tion of the manner In whie.h a free press Is made to teui gr tbe evils and Iricgnbi itles of a free government. Ia ? p?ges of independent journals we (ltd the ehsmeful and heartless policy of gettiDg up a war for tho sake of an eiectiou expoted with the utmost freedom an t boldness; every motive is unteiled, every pretence Is analyzed, and the whole imposture is laid bare to the eyes ot the nation with a force and clearness which we would fondly hope rib it ot every chance of success. It is thus tl at in free discussion we find the remedy for such evils as grow aide by side with the enormous advantages of tho tree and unfettered action of large masses of tnen. If the Amerfoan govern tnent assumes the ignoble office o> deluding its suejects, it ia at any rate gruti'ying to think that there ia a twin power in the State?a free and enlightened press?capable of les'iainiog this license within the bounds of reason and moderation. Against the conduct of the government <fCen. 1 ietce with iegard to this country, the fl-m friend and well wisher of the American republic?against tbe insuring missives of his Foreign Secretary, and the still more insulting mauifest es of his Attorney General, we confidently appeal to the good sense of the American natirn itself, which we are convinced can neither wish to fas'rn a causeless quarrel upon a friendly and power ful State, nor to see its institutions degraded in the eyes ol foreign nations by beiDg made subservient to the greed and rellithness of factions or individuals. American Re porta from Bfbmtnpul?Doctor DnTr^a'k Statement 11* viewed. [From the Ixindon Times, Nov. IB.] America is proud of originality; her citizens delight ia novelty, have a natural tendency to paradox, ana find their chiot excitement in surprise. They have taken much interest in the present war, and have their own opinions on its events and conduct. They hare rrad the loop car. ativi s which the English press has given to the woiid, and with to have something ol their own equally etiiking and picturesque. As the reality ot the war has betn made publi . nothing remains to them but the ro mance, so that whenever an American traveller wishes to leiurn with glory to hit own land, he must he ready to detail soint thing moie wonderful and attractive than bis predecestors. A l>r. Davega is, it seems, the last arrival f'om Russia, arid we published on -Saturday the important tidings lie has brought. He has been a surgeon on the medical s'att in Sebastopol, he i et tea ted across the biidge wi'ti Gortscha keff, ai.d a few dsys afterwards relinquished his appointment and hastened home* rd to furnish the N?w York Hbulii With tlie truo state of affitrs, so gross ly misrepresented by English writers. The drat poi.t on which the l ector dwell' is the gnat advantage gained by the Kustitna on the 8th of hrpiember Wet. tin that day they, in a master!* manner, took up a ne v and stronger Position, which t tey had b?*n preparing fir many mouths, hey bad no intention to hold cebastopol pre|>er longer than was necessary for .he removal of their hospitals, iheir guns, and wha ever else they considered indis pensable. It may somewhat overturn this theory to re u ember tl at in this calm and leisurely opera'don 'he llus-ian (,'eneral )ef' behind him some 0.000 cannon, with powder and projectiles it. vai-l quantities; that tho works wbieli hare been the adiuhggion of the vict'ra, the decks for wltieh granite was brought from Aberdeen or toe Raltic, the barracks in which a whole army might be i h< lie red, weie given into the hands of the allies, and will soon be ut'erly destroyed. But, according to the Ametiran sympathiser, the gam was eoobvions that even the common soldiers perceived it. It nas a m titer of congratulation among 'hem that by a change of position ihey had nhtnined such an advantage ever their foe. Pr. Davegu left Sebastopol a few days after tho capture; be may therefo-o probably believe what he elates as to the uutenahility of the southern side. The Russlnn to> ts, he says, command every part of the city, which lies below tin m, at a depth of over 100 fuet. But by tbe lime his obsetrations w<-re printed lie ought to have been undeceived. llio a lips have held Sebastopol and the Kainbeluala now for two months, and the wh'-te vlTorts ol the Kusrians have not cisturbed them io thuir occupalion. or impeded their preparations for tbe com plete destruction of fotts mi basins. If wnat the world con-lde -td a defeat was in reality a triumph,ware, it teems, to count 1 equally fabulous that td by tbe lot our ct.ei?y's fore* hps been wcukentd by the loss*) to which even its Ceoeral confesses. Tlu-ie aie. says the American writer, between the camp and Odrssa :W0 000 wtll dis cipliued, web equipped, and effective men. There.i i mi lack of provisions and never has been. They have eneugh in the fkiirea to last for several months, even should they lie cut off from diiect communication with IViek p. fbe tru'b o! all these statement* time will te.s'; it is uselaes now to discuss them, for ncitLer party has the means of proving Its opinions to be Jus*. We may, how ever, express once more our be ief that the Russian army is murk reduced in numbers and quality; that, though not actually starting, it must undergo bitter hardships during the winter, ami bo maintained only nt. a vast ex pense. and that the resistance it will make to its enonties will be by no means as obstinate as the defence of Se wn tepid. Rut, In tbe opinion of the Amerlran surgeon, a change awaits tbe fortunes of the Allies or rather of the I reach , lor the French alone he deems worthy to engage is. conn let with the soldiers among w horn be lit bored. We sr.U.ld by Dr. I'avega that he "does not know of a batUe in which the English .wore not worsted, and la which they have not been saved trom destruc tion by their allies, the Krench." Thu French alone will t ate to contend aga-usl the Innumerable hoe's of Ruesh,, and, with all tho biilllnnt bravery of the Gallic soldier, It is not to be exported that hi can resist men who fight for "tbscrliod, their Czar, and their country." The sneers (gainst .tag land show with sut cient clearness tbe spirit of the wfMer, and the degree ofcredlt whlih is due to hisortatemr nfa. Availing himself w the fac* that, in the earArr part of the campaign the Bri'ish occupied an exposed position ana bore the weight of '.he Rus-ian attacks, whiij their aiise* cau.e W.tcr into action, the American represents lbs Btl'ish la-ce a? al? ays on t he verge of destruction, worthy only of ahe contoa<pt of the Russians. and likely to lia<e been rut von in I i the sea without (Tench .assistance. This feeling is nothing new, and we ean alfs-d to smi.< at its tpMsf, s'.xll * in the present case. J he faults of <iur own system haae beeo often pointed out; come of W>em ,.>? keiog miweUed. Ollwrs seem too deeply rootp 1 f,.r even Iht blasts' of po pi lar iodigna'ion to teur them up; but the honor of. sell if. rs Is safe, and thef r ellieiwa..j ieocy nn t superiuHty'oanr their enemies are testided by thw general consent ho rope. Ir I'avega's opinion as to the lir | o-ibfllty of a win ter esmiaign is one which svery or.e will share who has s'udied the subject, but we cannot agiee with the notion nswlil that tbe parse in nperati nsHild beuetlt the enemy, or b< ing r.nrtelves into any steal's Tho prospers of the allies aie gloomy ouly so fares that ? sons >n of delay must intervene be ore they can cl ><e with the eueny for a final oonfl'ct for the possession of tee |>enia*ula. The th'??

The Rn-sis us, on tbeotber hand have no sdisn'age except a crntrnl position, and that Is neit trnllrrd by the geographical formation of the country, which allow them to lie isolated In their own terrl'orf. They have been beaten in the last great enc ranter, they luve teen driven 'torn their strongest positions an I, in spite of national ignorance and obstinacy, th. y ?lU't liegin to ree that there are In Europe men strongs iu he?i t enc hsnd D an themselves. Should Dr. Pnvrgi re'urji to bis medical duties at the eomweuceiBent of the nan' campaign, he will be able to Judge for hitnseir of the P"Wrr of his friends to resist In the del I the t roons of the ration which he evldentiv so much dislikes.

He (Mr. C.) intended to huve said that the Major or (Mayor's clerk- knew of ihe fbet of Baker carry ing a pistol for his own protection, but be was now con ?incurthat Mayor Westervclt had,no knowledge of tie ciicumstance. ? John B. l ing was then sworn and examined by Mr. Clark?I reside in Broadway. Mr. Claik?Your place ban been spoken of by the wit meres ss Johnny Ling's? A. Yea; 1 kn>w ?U the parties in this ense?Poole, Baker, IJnn, Van Pelt, Morrissey, H'(IrVere yotfat Ptanwlx Hall on Ihe 24tb February? A. No; I was not out of my house after dark; these parties v'sited my house; Morrissey was not atuiy house on that evening; Baker was the only one of these 1 have named who was iheie in the early pa-t < f the evening; there wan do one in the hou-e but my biotuer in law and Mr. Chanfrsu and Baker and myself, and I proposed to play a game of cribbaue for a trifling amount, y. What was the state of the game when you heard some thing from a young man who came In ? A. 1 think I was a gsuie a head; I was informed by some young man of the affair at Stanwix Hall; the young man was from I hila delpbia; I communicated it to Bukor; 11- id Baker that Moriissey and Poole had had a muss at -ttanwix Hall, and that Poole had drawn a pistol on Moriissey, the game was not (topped; we played off double or nulls; I remained in my place; Baker left in from three to five minuies after we finished the gamer; in ten or fifteen minutes after Baker weni out, Turner came In. Q. what did Turner say? (Objected to, ru'ed out.) Turner re mained there and took a drink or smoke with me; he had asked me to drink or smoke, and In return I askel him; I forget whether it was a smote or a drink; he staid about ten minutes; I think all the parties I have named came back after that; there were o'her people there alio; the parly weie talking about that affray; Morrissey was very drunk; lam not positive about the time; I uever take notice rf time unless I have a particular engagement. Q Was it after the affair in Htanwix Hall? A Toey were la king the matter over, so it must hive been; I was fliendly to Morrissey, and was known to bo so; I don t think any of the other parties were so drunk as to be psrticularly noticed, except Morrissey,'and he was very drunk; as Mr. Maguire salo, "sr?ne men get drunk m the head and others in the heels; Morrissey was drunk in the IfffH. q. Was lie not also drnng in his head ? Yes, he his very druik; I did not notice that Paudeen was drunk; the parly went out: I thought they went to Allen's in Lieixnard street. ? , . y. Who went out? A. Turner, Paudeen, Cunningham, IJnn, aud 1 think Van Pelt, and I am not positive about Ug.e,Who Is Cunningham ? A. There he is in courj; he generally baa more influence over Morrissey when he is drunk than any person else; they returned iu tec or flf'Cfn minutes ; Morrissey and Cunningham hail several drinks and then went away, leaving Baker. Paudeen,ffTuiner, Van Pelt, linn, ami Hyler behind there might have been twenty persons in the room, but my attmlion was dliected to tboru; I recollert them because they were afterwards indicted; Morrissey left mj boose with Cunningham, to go heme; the other partto remsined, and had several drinks. Q. Bo you know the relations between Poole and Turret? A. Turner and l'cole were very friendly; the tela'ions of Van Pelt and Po<-1a were very friendly. y. How about IJnn. A. I -botud suppose thai the In timate re'atlons betwten Baker aud Linn would make Bode unfriendly with Linn. Q. Was he fiiendly with Hjler? A. Hyier and Toole were filendly; I should think that he would be friendly with a man that would lend lilm two or thiee hundred rtol'nrs at a time; Hyler and Paudeen were strangers to each other; I have known all these parties intimately, except Turner. .... I Witness describes the position they were lu in his saloon.1 CJ. Lid you bear Morrissey. before tbey wen? out, re proach Baker for cot lending him a pistol. A. I eld nit; Paudetn seemed to be miffed at some remark Mor rissey had made about Baker; livler said New Yoik was neatly played off waen a man cculri not go home to bid own wife ftftfr night; Turner said he would go home wtih him; Turner said to Paudeen. "Paudy. will voa come along?" Paudeen aiM he would not; Hyler said," Paudeen, 1 don't know you by any other nsme, will you go along?" with that Paudeen, Van Pelt, Hjler and Turner left Q. Was it known then to that party that Poole was a* Pienwlx Hall? A. It was known there that Poos was at the Flglith ward station house. Court?Lid they ail spesk of Poole as being at the sta tii n house? A. Yea. To Mr. (.lark?Those 1 have named left logo home with Hyler; tbi others renalncd; it must have been half an hour or an hour more, or longer, till they returned again; I was busy, and I cannot be definite about time. IJdu was the first to return, y What did he say? Objected to. Q. Who next came In? A. Turner; became in in a veiy short time; there was sufficient time for Linn to say what bad occurred before Turner came in; Turner looked very pale and was staggering; he looked as if he was try ing to get down on the floor; I run to him and found tie was wi unded in the aim; 1 laid him down. y. Had he a pistol with tim? A I found one on the floor near htm; Paker and the others csine in after; while I was with Turner I tooled around and saw Baser in the barroom; there was a wound on Baker's head and be was shot in the groin; there was blood on him and his bee was scratched; I got a bar in and towel and com mtnctd washing him off. y. What wss Baker's condition f A. He wa? like a man who had been in a forlorn hope and won it; I wash ed Faker off, and rent for a phyr-klun, and to the idx'h ward s stir n bouse for a squad of podca; Baker's faoe was scratched and cut, his eves weie gouged, his mou'h rot, snd bis lips swollen; his fti e was dirty: I did not examine his clothes at that Hmd; I put my fingers in his clothes to see if there was a ball there; I examined the wound on Ihe head also to see if' here was a bail there: I aovned Paker to go round to Judge Breonan and give himself np; 1 washed bis moutli out snd gave blm brandy and water; tt might hare been Jamaica rum. Q. Was Baker sober or otherwise? A. I never saw him drunk In my Hie; I gave him the liquor to wash out ids nroutb; 1 took off Ills shirt; tt was d"rtr; 1 gave hi n one ot my own; 1 don't know If he had a cap oo when he esn o Id; 1 sent to the Sixth ward station house, snd I think half a dozen or more policemen came; I thought tbey had the woist of it, and 1 did not kzow but the I oiils crowd would cume,* and I wanted to have the law on my side. (Baker's shirts produced.) Wi.nes* iden tifies atom; if a htll is fired from inside a coat there will is a smooth bole inside, snd a rongh one oat-lde; but if fired from Hie outside there will be a smooth hole out side, snd a rough rne inside: I have a coat in Court on which I trird the experiment; before the polks came I closed the felcltgd< ors, so that the wounded men were insids when the police arihe-k. Mr. Clerk proposed to give a* part of the rot jrt?<r, B? krr's statement of the transaction, made at the time to tbr witness, t'bjseted to snd srgued. y.

A. i saw one very near where he lay on the floor. Mr. Claik proposed to show that the witness examined Turner's pistol, end thet some of the barrela were loaded, thongh the proeecutlon had proved that be fired four or five (hot at Btanwix Hull. Witness?1 txamlrrd it, and there were two charges la if it was a six barrelled pistol: there were four shots out Ot It St d two in It , .. . . To Mr. Whitirg?It was one of Colt s; the barreli wee abcut as long as the one on the Judge a bench. (.-Mven ' Vo^Mr V^Jft wa? a naval ehootor: I sent for two or three d.'ctor.; Or Clark, the gentleman who has beea a * "h'sowvou experimented by sheeting through a coat with a view to seeing the effect of Iff A. Yes: I have travelled a good deal: I have been at CaUforule. hew Or "r Vi ltin#?That will de; a man who ha* been at California has been all round the world. (laughter.) Witness or*tinned?I have seen coses of the kind, and _ f*mil'sr with them. (Take* Poole's coat and ex w the holes.) \ h'<-T about those hale* in the lining ? A. Ibe pistol ?fcould Iuti been mj eloM to 1'.; the others magi her* been furthe off; the pistol must here heen on the in side, user the lining; 1 here s ooat bore (produoes the erst rn which be hsd expert men Ud); those holes era shot frotn the outside; there Is s shot from the inside slso; the shot makes s round hole on the side from which It is Bred, aid tears the other side; 1 stood about four ieet off fioro tbe coat when I shot at It. ilr. Crooheron (a Juror)?That is not ae dose as if It was fired under the coat tail. Mr. Clark requested the witness to put on Poole's coat, and go to a shooting gallery, and shoot through the tall of the coat while it Is lying orer the muzzle of the pistol. He was also asked to get the same man who loaned Poole's pistol to load the pistol which he (Mr. Ling) is to use. Mr. Brady said there wsb considerable talk hare abonft theories, aid the jury might hare as many theories lis the end as had been raised by the oounse'.. He had an idea in his own mind In regard to this sh utting, qp<l wished to bare the experiment made of firing the pistol through the skirt from the outside, with the skirt thrown, ba-k over the band In which the pistol waa held. Ha wan'ed to discover, il possible, how far the fire would bo carried from theui utile of a pistol so as, for instance, to ignite cotton on the opposite side oi the cloth through which the pistol had been fired. Wi ners waa desired to make the experiment after the di> urmnent of the c mrt. Witness continued?I here known Mr. Baker aeren of eight years; I hare associated with him only about fc y ear before Poole's death. Q. What is his disposition!1 A. Well, he is fond of ar uingaease: in his argument he don't get mad; sown men in arguing get angry. Q. Is he kind hearted? A. I think he is. Q. Did you know Poole's character? A. I did. Q. What waa bis charae'e:? A. The man is dead, and I on't wish to ray m-re than is necessary. * Witness waa told it waa neoeaaary tor the firing that h* hcnld answer the question. A. His character I* very bad. Q. Ythat is his character for brutality? A. Very bad;, m rer knew him to fight a man single hansed; I recol lect the fight between MorrWey and Hyer; I acted ah second to Morilasey. Q. What Ih tbe difference between a pugilist and a fight er? A One is an artist and the other ia a blackguard (Laughter.) Q. Which was Poole? A. He was the latter; Baker was not a fighting man. Witness here stated the cir cumstance of his going to Philadelphia, and that he hadr a pistol with bim; a man named Young took it and lent It to Baker, and be got it from him again. (J. I id you not know Bnker to be afraid to go home at night lor (ear he should be attacked? A. He has slept cn 'be floor in my honae twenty nights, and It is hardly to he supposed a man would do that unless he was afraid to go hi me, when it was only two "or three blsoka off; 1 was present, at the difficulty bet.weea Morrls~ey and 1 oole at the foot of Amos street; I think It waa two yeare ago last August; Post waa there; 1 am notpoaitire of la zier; ] think he war there; the e were from three to five hundred there; the dock waa full; Morriaey and 1 were alone. Q. Was Baker there? A. I did not see him. [The exau ill A'ion or Mr. Ling was suspended for the eibminatii n of Pr. Wood.) James P. Wood was examined by Mr. Brady?I am tu pnysician for several ytars; I am a pro'essur, crnnected wiih BeUevue Hospital and some of the medical lnstitu ti ns. [Counsel conceded fl at Dr Wood was one of the moat en .{Lent prac Dinners of the city. y. 1 id you k mw J'oole? A I saw Poole but once; it was the next day ai'er Ibis adair; I saw him at his own house where I . asstteuliDg his brother-in-Uw, Lozier; Loctora Putnam aud ".ainocban were attending Poole; 1 waa under the impress'on, when 1 first saw Poole, that the hail was si ill in htm. Q Win) discovered the ball? A. t discovered the b>.U by touch; 1 dirt r. ot conduct, the examination; It Was Dr. t amoeban; while he was examining the body I touched the heart and discovered the hall; Doctor Carnochan cut it out. y. Did Toole express any opinion aa to whether he thought be should lie? A. I saw Poole the Burnley be fore he died; up to ihut time he exp etsed the strongest hopes that be woo id live; Lozier was wounded iu the head;, it was external to tre bone, passing backward and out wards: he bad another wound in the !? g, which waa the most dangerous of the two. Counsel for deience remarked that Lozier did not say oue word of his having that wound when he was ex amined as a witness. Witness continue!?It proved to be so from the suppu ration; in that suppuration a me pieces fif cloth came out:! utten' ed Turner in oonuec tun with my partner, Dr. Woodruff; we found a gunshot wound en tbe leftarm, about an inch and a halt below the elbow joint, pro ducing a compound c mtninuted fracture where the bai( cassia through the skin and eueof the integuments; If Tinner bail pi evented a pistol on bis arm and L slipped and went ofi that w< una might have been produced, or it might have been prodnce.l if when in the ?et of tqroiog the pls'C'l it exphs ed. ] did not see the wound on Ba ker's abdomiu uniil be was in the Tombs; (looks at tb? wound dow); thecicatiix is one 'hat, ffl never had he ltd snythiDg about It, I should not hesitate to pronounce a gun shot wound. Cioss-examined?The lull must have penetrated suf ficiently far to have iaceraied it; if there was not a voun<i 1 canni t imagine why a physician should liove pioted it; D pr< bed there would nave been mure or less blood trom it; thine wtuld have been enough to soil the shirts. Mr. Whiting?Is it probable that the ball that would I ave g< Be through the vest and pantsl ions and shirt* would have prtduced such an off ct upoq the body? A I Link it would; I can only judge fiom what I saw on be body ; a bail nearly spent would have pro i ucid the holei in the undershirt ; there is n appearance in the upper and lower ho'ei as hiving teen y a bullet; the middle one I ean say nothing bout; 1 received a note requestlug me to visit Turner, at ing's; I raw Poole tbe day before be died; he a*ked me my opinii asi'o the probability of his recovering; I ex I lesscit no opinion; I had no idea he wuuld recover. Mr. Clsik?Mould a ba 1 fired under the coat of a man II Poole's t eight, mfli .t he wound in the leg of Lozier? A. It would depend upon the way it waa levelh d. To Mr. W hit lag?It ia tbe first instance of a man living to long with a ball in his heart <f. ID wr do you account for thai? A. If the ball had enteicd any ether part, the-a would not have been mus cular tissue enough to give it a lodgment; in this ease it euteiert the septum, between the ventricles. Mr. Ling recaliel?y. What was Puole's character for tru'h ana veracity? A. li a case in which he was in teiiHtid I would not believe him. I rosa-examired? Dla character has been so had for seme yesra, if be went In with another men as a partner in a race, be would get a man to "throw" you off and n akn all the money; he was a bad man; I think Baker knew 1 bad ibst spinion of Poole; 1 know Poole got a Iran to swear a fie upon me: that waa Baker's opine n of hin>, too. I think; 1 knew Tatar carrirda pistol; I suppose it waa fir bta persocal protection: he nevar told me so; the time be slept at my house for twenty nigbtg waa last veer up to tbe time of' this cecur tence; 1 can't give the dates; they were nit twenty corncutive night-; they might be tbieo or four i giits e week, ei d sums'imea every night; 1 think bis own room was in Bi ? ome street, between t rin e and Worcester; be slept on the floor, on nothing but the cn'pet; I presume he slept ?i.h his pi-tul: I do not tn< w positively that he had it, with htm; he usually <anieil It in his breast pocket; I do n it know that he ?)ep? at my house tbe night before the ueeorreu-e; he did sleep there two i igli's before; I ion't know that ho ured to get up in tbe night and go out; I kept a liquor place. Q Anything else there? A. Yea, card playing; there was a roulette table also; Baker played'there; he did not play there " profeeeUn ally " L Ycu call a professional player en artist, I suppose; what do you call un nnpn foasional player?.
