Q. Were you brought here In order to recognise him? A. Tea, sir. Q DM you recognise him as the person who boeghttlie knife from yon? A. Tee, elr; I new btm buy the knife; I recognfied him m the person who bought the knife. [Here the Coroner banded n foor edged dirk Senile with a wooden handle to wltneee, and asked bar to look at It, which she, did very closely. The handle wee so loosely titled to it that It oould be pulled oil with the greetMt em; it bad set then the appearance or being the original hanale; the blade was about an Inoh In width, bout six Inches long, and wu or the strongest kind. J Coroner to the Witness?Does that beer a similarity to the knife he bought from you? A. You, elr?that Is tha tame blade, hut the handle Is not fin la bed. q. la It tha same alse? A.

The witness walked ortr to the barrier whiob operate* the front and back parlors, and taking from one of the polioemen a walking etlok which he bad In h band, she stretched across the barrier and laid It upon the shoulder or 8nodgraas. This recognition did not seem to aOVct him la the least, but la a somewhat braggadoois manner, be said to Oaptaln Dllks, " Well, I don't see why she shouldn't rsoognlzo me, after seeing me op stairs." The witness returned to her seat, prepared to enswer any farther questions The Coroner, Immediately alter the i (cognition srsnodgraas, had him arrested. "1 will give yon," said he to the ofllcsr, the necessary legal pa per to take Mr. Snodgraes Into custody." Theoommitmeat wss mode ont nsd placed In the hands of the offloer, who forthwith arrested Snodgrasi and took him to the Fifteenth ward sullen house. While paeelag through the hall ho called to a young man about bta own age to join him. ' Ccme along, Dlok," sail ho. And Dlok aecordlagly went with him. The excitement which followed the reeognltloa orSnoi grass was so great that no business could be transacted for isrsral minutes. At length Mr. Chproa said that when the noise should subside he bad some further questions to pat to the witness.

The (onoin* thee said?I deemed II mciaaery, for reer of mlsrepr seenlation, to oomalt my Ideal and thoughts to paper. Be thee eommenoed to addreee the jery, and spoke m follows ? Gbtumu or rae Jiav?i here to eoofretalateyen that ocr labor* in thla important oaee ere approaohlag a eloee, end I cannot refrain from expressing my thanks to yon colleotiveiy and to cash juror Individually, for the patient attention whioh yon hare bestowed upon the oaee as It progressed. Thla duty wbtch the law hae oast upon as. has been and Is to Inquire how and by what means Dr. Harrey Burdell?upon rtew of whose body the present inquest ta held?came to bin death. 1 think I may amort, without fear of contrad lot loo, that there has neror been an Inquest in thla oily which has attracted so mnch ot public attention aa tbo present. The pubtio mind some fourteen days ego was startled on learning from the channels through which the parsing erenta or the day an made keowa, that e res poo table cltlsen, n gentleman of wealth and a good station In society?had been foully and bintally murdored?I tulght aay butchered?and In bin own house; and that at that time there was no clue to discover the perpetrator* of the foal deed. The me meat our proceedings commenced the eyes of the public were rlvetted upon us, and the ertdenoe of each day, aa we progressed, was looked for ana rend with Intense nwdbty, In order to learn If there was nay probability that the guilty party or parties oouid be tflaoovered end brought to the bar to answer for the crime. Not oely did this general anxiety exist to I tarn how the la qulry progressed end what disclosures ware aliened, bat that great engine io? good or evil, the public press, thought It lilting and proper to oommsnoe from day to day and carry on a severs criticism on the presiding officer ef this inquiry, tending to lead the pabUc mind to the conclusion thst the Inquest would prove ebor tlve owing to bis incompetency to oenduot the investigation, charging the Coroner with adopting bnt one theory of the case, and following np that theory, to the exclusion or all otbers. It most be apparent I* everybody that eltber one or otber of iheee theories is correct? The murder was oommittrd wt'U the privtty of some lamate or tnmatee of alio bouse or Urn murdered

man, or by some person who entered the bouse, unknown to those Inmates, com n I tied the murder, and then left the bouse. Gentlemen, 1 am free to admit that I thought It right to piooeed aa if the Orst Uworv WMlke true one There appeared to me, at a very ear y period of enr leoors, to be evtdoaoe pointing in that dirtotion?none in the contrary direction. But I deny moat emphatically that 1 followed out that theory to the exclusion ot the other, if any evidence oouid have been obtained to ostein it. I had parties engaged, eight end day, searching for rvtdence where aid with whom Dr. Burdell was during the whole of the Friday evening of the mnrder, and also to ascertain if any person was seen to enter the bouse during any period of tnat evening, who might have Deed concealed therein wnen ine uoctor entered, or wno ( utcred ?i er htm. The Inquiries on this bead were fruit Ktt; and In the absmce of any evidence suppoittog any contrary theory, I did tblah it right to follow out tha theory with which 1 first became Impreeaed, and was da determined to pursue H until U was estab llsbed by evidence, or ahowa to be arroaeous. 1 do net regret the course which I hare pursued; sod as thla oaee la to be go reread by your yard lot, I leave my ooadnel to tba verdict ol an enlightened public, who, 1 rtntnre to think, will come to the oonclutlon tbel the cause of public Justice list not suffered under my ad ro Id titration of It. It Is always unpleasant for a party to peek of himself; but he la a times compelled to do to In elf r indication, as hie aUoncc might be oo"?trucd into an acquiescence In the justice of the charges brought (patnet him For this reaaoc alone nare I sectored to apeak of myself, and trust that the jury whom 1 hare the honor to address will think the remark! which I hare made as to my own conduct hare not been uncalled tor. Dismissing this preliminary personal matter, I will proceod to oall your attention to the case itself: It Is one almost unparalleled in the annali of crime. Theoonntry looks to you to reader a true rer diet according to the crldcnoc. but lot not the magnitude or the crime?let not'your abhorrence or It as you dastro to see the justice ot the oountry rtndlcated, lead you to imp ate guilt to any one upm whom tha ertdenoe does not fix guilt, so, cm the other hand, sympathy to1 ward any oae upon whom guilt Is Used, ny evideuc" sat wiaclory to your minds, should not be allowed to intlu t nee your fee Hags You will btar In mind that your verdict does not dactde the guilt or lunooenco or any party.

If, goatlemu, eon aboald cone to the conclusion that tho marriage of lira Cunningham waa not with Dr. Bordell, aad aioo woa aot with Bokei, hut with some other person, then, although the presumption of |?ilt from moll to* of latereet would remain as to Mrs. Cunningham, as to Eckel it woald he entirely removed. Too evidence as reepeota Mr daodgrass Is weaker than that against Eokel and Mfra Oaaniagbass as to him, although it is apparent that he possessed the means ami opportunity of perpetrating tho oruns there Is no proof or any motive similar to those which giro w? Igbt to tho ooso as agalaaj Eokel end Mm Cunningham (Mill, howsrer, f must call jronr attention to tho or) den00 as It aiieoto Baodgraso. He appears la hare.bssa oa terms of intimacy with Mrs. Cunningham and hadaughters. He was in tht house on tho night of the murder. You will say whether the murder ooald hero been or wes eoDiuilttrd by one peraon'sloar. (f you ere satis Oed that more than one person wu engaged in ths actual commission ct the murder, aad exclude Mm. Cunning ham's daughters and sons and the female servant from ail participation in the aot, then you will consider whether you can safely onrno to tho conclusion that tlaodgrui wu n party aiding Eckel tn tho bloody tragedy. 1 must tell yon that a party Is not to be ImpltostM ud soot to trial w1 icro the out Is one or oosptoioa only. to jostif> a verdict against uy one you must be salts tied by evidence that the cue is one of more than suspicion? that it bu nails tied your minds that uy party Implicated by your verdict, committed or was aiding ana abetting la the crime. Oonaldeiiog the great attention whloh yon liare paid thts case, ud that very little of evideaoe that has been adduced has appeared wtth irroataeoaracy in ths Kublto papers, 1 shall not go over ths evidence la detail, at will plaoe in your buds, vrheo you retire, a oopt of the papers oontaintng the evidence at length. Possibly, gentlemen. I shall be blamed for tekiag thu coatee, bo cause I saw It predicted In one of the papers or Thursday tut that I should probably consume u entire day? (The Coroner, while the reporters were copyla,; his manuscript, stated that be had a particular reason lor Italtclxlng these words. The readlsg w?? then proceeded with. |?in my summing up of the esse, and as that prediction will not be verified, I shall await with calm resignation, the falsltioa uion oi mo preuiuoon roicxrtu ij i uu ?n eurum from the task of going over Uie evidence m detail from any daetre to nre myself the trouble, bat consider that tbe whole of the testimony Is In print, and can be ra ferred to by yon on your retirement Considering your attention to the oaae, as It has progrested. considering that this U not the tribunal before which the guilt or Innocence or any party Is absolutely II ted, that too evi denre is on one side, and that there Is not a conHiot of testimony to be sifted and weighed by the presiding .ludge for the guidance of the jury as upon a trial of an Indictment, f think the ends of justioe will be best promoted by the adoption of the course wbloh upon due deliberation I have decided to take, namely, to give you the general eflact of the evidence and tbe conclusions lobe drawn from It,leaving U to jou to refer to It m dotal if you should deem II necessary to do so. There Is, howsver, tbe evldonos of one witneea ot such vsst Importsnoe that' feel 1 ought to make a row observations on It I mean tbe testimony of the witness Farrell, which was taken on tbe 10th last, itantieme*, It Is, as you are aware, tbe peculiar province or the jnry to decide on tbe degree or weight they should give to each and every witness Utsy should have hrfore them. Th< y have the advantage of Iboie omslde the court, of aeelng the manner and demeanor of the witness tealifylug; and before any weight can be attached to tbe evidence of the witness, the jnry most be satisfied that he is the witness of truth, end oomes forward fo speak of facts of whioh ha is oognlsnnt, and not lo relate n tale the product of bis own invention. The Impression made on my mind at tbe Urns waa, and still re malm, that the witness whose same I have mentioned was the witness of the trutn; that be come before as and testified to Tacts and occurrence* within bis own knowledge; and If tbe same Impression was made oa yonr minds, then the aext question (hat yon will ask yourselves Is this ?Could the witness bsvs been mistaken??bad he the moans and opportunity ol seeing tbat the person who came down In hie ahtrt sleeves a few mlnutee after the person (whom we have reason to presume waa Dr. Burden 1 entered thn house, was FckeLV If you btlleve tbat the witness In question was the wltaeaa of tbe truth, and was not mistaken In his Indentlfioatlsn of Kckel, ws have these facts established That within two minutes after Dr. Burdell entered the boose a cry waa heard within it as oT a person being Injured; tbat such cry waa auOlciently loud to be beard outside the house , tbat la another minute or ao all la atieooe; and F.ckal then np peats at the front door, and there oa tbe aide pott of tbat door stamps with his loft hand, wst with lbs blood ol his victim, full proof of his guilt For what purpose te cams lo the front door we oaunot pos lively say, but It may be interred?and I think the IhlerfDC# la a natural one?finding that bis victim was despatched, and bavtsg a murderer's tears that tba crlts may bavs beea heard bi mime person outside, he ventured to lbs door to satisfy himself thai they bad net beta beard, thereby furnishing the Strongest possible eirrumstanilml evidence against himself thai be was the murderer, or cne of the asurdervrs, If more than one was engaged la this horrid tragedy. Thus, gentlemen, by what man terms accident, but which rnav be more fltlv i6i used fit jUM ud wtee inierpotliion of that Being who guid<e and gorerna all, and from whom no 6?cr6U are bidden, wu lb? wltaeet Fern I! on the aery tpot at thf naeded moment, and waa th?r?s mi le by tba mar CNtr hlmteif a wttaean of bla guilt Too ovideooe of Ferrell oleara op another dlfhouMy which waa prmooted at an early period of our laqutry You w 11 re toil eel tbat it waa proved tbat there waa blood oa tba atatr caae aad i | tinge of the first floor, abowtag that tbe murderer oame f uoarn atatr*; aad tbeae appearaccea of blood aufgeet tbe theory tbat tba murderer lert tbe borne, acd if ee, that ao inmate of tbe boute area laplloated The appearaone of Kckel at tbe front door at once remoaee tbe difficulty, aad (umithee corrobailre proof of tbe truth or tbe bypotbrela tbat tbe murder wae not tbe work of aay one concealed in the bouae, or wbo entered after Or Bar dell.

Thle, however. la matter lor Soar oeualderation and deolalon. Allow me to amy, that you hare collected, or think you have collected, from the observation* which I have made en the caae, what In my Individual opinion of the cane, cr the force of the evfdence effecting any individual whoaename I have mentioned, I beg you will not he In the allghieot degree Influenced by what you may conjecture on that head. My opinion ought not to weigh n feather m tbeeoaleeof nutlet, now tu your handa. The verdict la to be youre, and not mine, nor influenced by me My dnty baa been to point yonr attention to the (acta and turronudtnc clraumatanoea of thla exolUng, and I might nay, on parade led caae, and to onggaot polnta Mr yonr oonntderatlon. You will, therefore, reeelve what I have aald in thla light If. upon a careful review or all thelaola and olroumatancee Ut evidence betoro yon, you oome to the oonoluaion that although a murder ban been committed, there la not e. idenoe to put any of Ute la maten of the houae oo their trial aa peretratora of or aaoeaaortra belbre the (hct to the ftral murder whioh ban been oommltied. your vordtot should be *' that Ute deceased waa mnrdared by eome person or persona to yon unknown." Although the blool of the murderj l man cries to Henven tor veogennoe againat the murderer, yen will take care that the arrows of retributive justice are not directed againat any one who has not oommlttod or participated la the morder. The maxim of the law la, that It Is better that ten guilty pereone should escape rather than one Innocent person should suffer. On the other hand, if the parties whose natuee have been brought before you on thu Inquiry have their rights, it la ray duty tn tell you that public justice has her demands on yon, which rcaulro to be satiated If thev are made nlala bv reliable testimony. It weie better that the bonds or society should bo altogether dissolved, end men reform to hie original Mate of barbarism aid enrage liberty, the arengrr of bl* own wrong*, and at onoe the judge and executioner ot tho men who has depnred him of one of his own kindred?better, I toy, should this state 01 things exist than that members of a clrlllxed community, alter the surrender of a portion of their natnral liberty in expeotallon of receiving protection (a their persons and property, find that what they had trusted to aa a bene tit and protection was a mockery, a delusion aad a snare, ariaing from juries at whose hands |uittoe is demanded (ailing (from whatever cause Is immaterial) fearlessly and faithfully to discharge their duty. If juries tail In the discharge of their duties, aad crimen of the deepest die can be committed with Impunity, the necaesary coo sequence is that bad men will speculate on Impunity thus pressnted tottetr view, and crlmrs. even those of tho greatest atrcclty, like the one we are Inquiring Into, will multiply to a fearful extent. I would further ssk you <o bo gmlded by the svlf eaoe, sad tha evidence alone. I Horagard altogether the comments which bays been made outside thin room Bach bays been published, aad you may barn rred them aad here are parties who hare thought fit in insert, comment on sod draw oonolustons from the artdance given hers. Let not yoor judgments bo swayed by the opinions of others The verdict la to bo yotrs, and you are not oallm on to reoord or oadorse tho ops Ions and conclusions of any one pandering to tho nsorHld appetite of the public. Above all, gentlemen, doa't lot yonr verdict be intlueaced by any fear ol comment oa It Irom without. It may aad will be criticised, commsntad oa, and perhaps denounced, in tbe quarter to wbloh I have referred, but, geuilemeo, be sble to retireftsn your labors with an approving onactence. That will sustain you under say attack to which you may b? subject The attacks on myself personally, past aad to coma, have, as to the former, railed la their objects They have not annoyed or irritated mt, aa they were intended, to?they have been but as dew drop* on tha lion's mans, dissipated by a ais le abate, aad their existence scarcely tell, and all other attacks on aaa wtU fall equally harmless. Doa't understand me. gentlemen, as asserting that I am regardless of tbe opinions of othar* or that I am Indiflercnt to popularity?aa ona would believe me if I wero to makoMucb an assertion, oat the popula.lty which I oovot and prIre Is not that popularity whlob is run sftsr and coveted butlbal wbloh follows tbe faithful aad boaest disobari of daty.
