H I am to be examined a* a rrrson are used of crime, or at an accessory to the crime, J should like to be informed of the lacl before I answer 1 j any questions. ' Coroner?from the statement* made by Rome of tbe 1 | witnesses here there is reason to suspect that you were iiu| !i<?led in the death ef Mr. Walton; you have been 8 heard to threaten his life on more than one occaaion. 1 Witness?1 never made use uf any threats against his 1 life. < Coroner?We want to know where you were on .Saturday J evening, anil wish to examine you as a witness. Witness?By advice of my ,-onr.ael, Messrs. Hall and j Brady. 1 think it would be Improper for ine P- answer any ' of your questions, but if you will only tell me what position I am placed in. 1 will content to examination. Coroner?Well, sir, you are here aa a witness, then. 1 Witness?1 would like to consult my counsel before being examined, and if you have no objections I will do ao. 1 Corouer?Are your counsel or either of them present? ' Witness?1 believe Mr. Brady it here, but I am not ' certain. However. 1 don't sac how 1 ran be here as a '' witness when I am under arrest and in eouiiiiement at the 1 Tombs. You are aware perhape that 1 surrendered myself ' into the eu-tody of the authorities on Tuesday, and have 1 been In prison ever since. Such being tbe easeTr don't tee bow 1 can give my evidence as a witness. I am ' evidently here as an accused person, and under arrest, ' too. I Coroner Jaekman then consulted with thn Assistant 1 District Attorney for a few moments, In relation to the e matter, when it was decided not to postpone the examination of the witness until some other day. Charl< k was then told to leave the stand, which he did 1 ri.'lit willhq ly.

Citizens, on the ontrary, excepting the comparatively few who went on Bo dock during the day, and gazed at the outside of the aip, seemed to have betaken themselves to other quar- c. ?rs.

Mridtrc and the Fourth of July?Chora* ler and Deportment of Harden?Hit Cell and Virile n?Hit tXnfu two?Preparations for the Mecution, de., <tc. The execution of the Rev. Jacob 8. Harden, of whose rial and conviction, upon the charge of wife-poisontug, iit reader! have already been informet, takes place ,t Belvidere to morrow. Belvidere is a very pretty little ullage, of sonic sixteen hundred inhabilanta, aituated inionf the hills of Warren county, New Jersey, and ipon the banks of the Delaware river. A small reek, emptying into the Delaware, and crossed by everal bridges, divides the city into two equal arts, and this and the hilly nature of lie utry giv 'f >eauty and variety to what would otherwise be a very rdiDary country village. Belvidere has many mannen j.d customs, ancient and unique, which would be well rorth description at any other time, but at present ts chief interest is derived from the execu ton which is to take place there. Its touses are generally well and substantially built, and one ild stone edifices seem as if they might legally lay claim o that honor, shared by so many old dwellings, of being ither the birth place or residence of Revolutionary . roes. Indeed, there is a tradition current that Washt gton refreshed and rested himself at one or two of the ccient mansions. In this, as in many other districts, Belridere reminds one forcibly of a quiet, steady, slow, toivg Yankee village, in New England. On the 8oulh ide of the creek is the Jail and court house, both In the ame building, fronting upon a large park, fringed in ? ith churches, of all persuasions and denominations?for Je Ivtdere goes regularly and religiously to church, and rayci iijrcuugB ucic uuukc- up iui (.uiitcrui, uiduca ?uu dher city excitements. Tbe jail id a large, brick building, unrounded on tbe ear side by a high wall. Tbe room for holding tbe ourtt is on tbe second floor of the odiflce, and on tbe irst floor are tbe sheriff's office# and reeideuce and the :ells of tbe prisoners. Harden occupied a cell in the lortb cast corner of tbe jail, with wndowi, strongly >arred. commanding view# of the jail yard, and, on the 'art, of tbe green holds beyond the village. Of course every one ie astir with excitement In regard :o tbe execution. Such occaaiona do not often happen in die lifetime of a village like Iklvidcre, and no conviction 'or acapital crime boa been held bereuutil that of Harden o.iii? the 1'arke and Carter murder. In 1W4. Blairstown, h? residence of the Harden family, la but titleen railed, ind Mr. Ramsey's. tlie scene of the murder, is only ton nilee distant, wnile Harden eas preached both at Bel vide re and in all the surrounding country, so that all rem to have a double interest in the caae. A great iow.I therefore, expected at the execution, to-morrow, although many of tbe citizens have made lUeuuoua ellorta to bave tbe affair conducted pro rale)y. Either out of p-spcct for the feelings of the ,<riaoner,flr for some other cause to the writer unknown, there waa no attempt at a r?t, bration here yesterday net every citizen of Belvidere who could get out of town eft for Hope, Ear ton, or some adjacent place. All busi ns* was sii*|>c..d<-<i, and the town seemed depopulated. Ticritt Sweeny baa received no less than three .hcusand applications for admittance to lh? xccution from all porta of the country. Our citizens ol 'bilsdrlphia sent an application, with a certificate from -tie of the Aldermen ol that city, stating th..t he waa ai; intelligent and respectable man.'' Many of the othei otters rueivod by the Sheritt might be el;-sed mucin he rurtoeltles < f literature. Ordy one hundred and dfty leracua, however, will be admitted to witne.-e THE EXECUTION, Ubich will take place in tbe enclosed yard of the jail. I?bc gall ,wa was erected on Monday last, at ttic re|uest of Harden, in sight of tbe windows ol lit cell, as he wtshed, be said, to familiarize itmsclf with its appearance. Tbe gallows la rudely but trongly constructed of unhewn timbers, and has never >een used before. A platform, with a railed stairway, i-ada to tbe drop, which is so arranged as to give a fall ol nor feet, and la so simple that an accident or mishap is Imret imj? ssible. The coffin of the prisoner is already repared. He will be led from bis cell to the gallows, nd will bo dressed In his ordinary clothing and ct in a shroud. a black mask is provided > be drawn over his face. Tbe execution ill probably ie- burned as much as possible, and It is "t el pec ted that he will nrnke any address from the gal ws, as he at first intended. His body will bo immeiately given up to bis family for Interment. Marin ' bus superintended all these details, and ;ie gallows baa been erected according to his irerttoiiK, lie having said that he preferred being r?i>|>ed to being run up, and having selected tbe corner f tbe yard in which be wished the gallows to stand, ione will be admitted to tbe jail yard without a ticket, isued by the sheriff, and reading as follows ?

The statement of Heck, the Basin apothecary, In regard to Harden having purchased oiaon there, was strictly true. Harden says that e did not go to Kastoo to purchase arsenic, but bat, having arrived there, he bought a large quantity, ot only at Heck4*, but also at another druggist's. He Iso purchased a rial of laudanum, and all of this poison e gave his w ife.

Tlscl* Departure lor Cuinp Scott?Terrible Acddtat at the Ferry?The Camp Orounrt* and the Pitching of Tent*. Wo announced several weeks ago In the Herald the fact that the Seventh regiment (National Guard) '.unl decided to perform camp duty during the present summer. Tliis intelligence was at llrst thought by some to lie premature. We subsequently anticipated the reports of ail the dally and w<* kly ncwsiuipers by giving a description of the camp site and other matters connected therewith which was thought to bo interesting to the general reader. The Seventh regiment is acknowledged by all, par ?bctUcttce, the best volunteer organization In the United Hates, and, wo doubt not, in tbe world. This reputation they hnye won by hard work in tho drill room, in our streets and on tbe field. Nailing of attaching any tarnish on the escutcheon of tbe gallant Seventh, a few interested parties have attempted, from time to time, to raise tho cry that it is au aristocratic organization,and thus euduw' vor to create a hostile tceling among their follow soldiers. Tlii* charge we emphatically declare to he utterly tawe ana calumnious; there ia sot a more democratic orgaulmli id | extant, either of a civil or military character. The Seventh regiment ia couponed of aome of our principal i j merchant*, bunkers, lawyer*, mechanic*, 4c , among j whom the utmoat unity and good feeling exist, and it la to thia fact, coupled with another we have already named, that the regiment has acquired their fame for j good dlacipline. The encampment has been looked forward to with conalderablc Interest, not only by the members of the regi{ ment but by hundreds of our cltlaena, and the "camp ! grounds" will, without doubt, beflbe centre of attraction during the next teu daya. Aa we shall have the city overrun with visiters to see the Great Eastern, they will also avail themselves of the opportunity to visit the noble Seventh Every arrangement has been made to reach the ground without difficulty, which can he done in about one hour's rule, hy steamboat and cars, fri m the foot of Whitehall street.
