Pen-Pietnrea of Witnesses end Spectators? A Bait road Han Banning a Jury. ??Mm. Armstrong 1 la Mre. Lucette Armstrong present?" The speaker paused and looked about the room. ??Officer, will you step Into my office across the corridor and call for Mrs. Armstrong?" The speaker was Coroner Whitehill, and as he spoke he Bat upon the bench, beneath a canopy of crimson and gold, in the Court of Sessions In Brooklyn, at eleven o'clook yesterday morning. In front of him were some two hundred persons of all ages and both sexes, who had come to attend, either as witnesses, Jurors, reporters or detec tives, the proceedings In the Inquest upon the sen sational tragedy of the day ? the Goodrich murder. The court room was occupied by courtesy merely , and is a square, neatly preserved, handsomely car peted and furnished apartment. Along the railing, Just inside the bar enclosure, were seated half a (Jozen ladies, varying from fifteen to forty years of age, and with complexions as varied as their ages. There were two or three brunettes of unattractive appearance; there was a young miss of passable features, who was busy reading a Mercantile Library book, and there was a decidedly pretty little mestizo of about fifteen, with pretty olive skin anil brilliant dark eyes. Her mother, a neat, cleanly mulatto, with A WHITE NCBIA over her head, stood outside the rails, leaning her head against the wall, and was lor a time so motionless that she looked almost like a mummy in some hall of antiquities. These were the nota bles. The orowd was not especially distinctive; tt was decent and rather more respectable looking than most of the audiences In "Crewner's 'quest" etoes. . .. . just within the enclosure of toe bench a tnin, small-framed man, with a dwarfed right band and arm and a clerical appearance, loaned against the railing aad talked to a man with the patriarchal head and snowy, sweeping heard of an JSU. small man was W. tV. Goodrich, Brother of Charles Goodrich, the mysteriously slain victim, and the bald and bearded gentleman who confronted him was Professor Ferdinand T. L. Boyle, an artist, who ought to paint his own head as a study for a ??High Priest of Israel." He is the gentleman wno ?ays the murdered man was In the habit of sitting on his own stoop In the evenings wtth a "Diana-like woman." In front sat ex-8upervtsor Dick New man, with a head and lace like Mayne Reid's, and a bedy like almost anybody's, talking to no one. Ex-Coxener Dr. Morris, blue cloaked and f ""bBARDBD LIKE A PARD, ^battered in a cluster, of which colonel Robert Johnson, a tall, military-looking man, and the dap per Alderman McGroarty, with a neatly trimmed mustache, formed particles. In the centre fore ground a score of reporters surrounded a couple of tables, and to the rltrht sat the Jury In a double rank of six flies front. They are not calculated ever to figure In any treatise on phrenology as examples of peculiarly finely balanced cerebral organisms, unless the foreman be excepted, who seems to possess "A VERY LEVEI. MAD," although it may seem paradoxical to say it is also rather round. He is called Alderman Billy Rich ardson, and he seemed to "run" the whole Inquest^ and did It well, for his questions drew out more new evidence of the little that was developed than all the other questions from other sources. The Coroner does not seem to have dignity enough to enforce order In his Court, and Is too lond of repeating every thing the witness utters to get along fast with the proceedings. The Coroner was playing with a pretty lltt.e nickel-mounted revolver, when t?e called for Mrs. Armstrong, and as the name of the woman was ut tered there was a rustling In the Court, and every body looked at everybody else to see If be or she was going to own the cogno men. In a few moments a renewed Jostling was beard as an officer entered the court, followed by a lady of medium height, who walked with a decidedly graceful movement across the room, behind the Jury box and up to the witness stand. She monopolized absolutely the gaze of every pair of eyes In the room, for she was "THE POOH SKAM8TBKSS" whose arrest last Thursday nieht In New York has since been the subject of so mach comment. This was Lucette Myers, alias Armstrong, the mys terious friend or companion of the dead man. She was attired in a light gray dress, with braided overskirt ol the same material, and bows down the front. Her arms and body were encased in a black cloth Jacket, revealing a white collar about her neck with a purple silk bew, and the borders ef a pair of linen eulfc at her wrists. Her gloves were brown kids, and her black hat, as well as her features, was covered by the half illusion of a '-moonlight" veil. A black shawl was thrown over her arm. It waa easv to discern her proOle through the veil, the most marked feature of winch was an unusually Ions aad very straight nose. Her face 1b narrow at the temples, broad at the cheek bones and tapers toward the chin, and Her eyes look some wnat Bunken. ler upper lip, too, Is peculiarly short and she hss lest several front teeth, she ap pears' to be about thirty years of ?ge, though ?he IB said to be only twenty-six. No woman ever ' walked in a flower uardkn with a more composed and easy air than Lucette Myers walked through that gaping audience, and **At ence the Coroner administered the oath and Nanette took the Bible In her right hand, raised her veil with her left and kissed the volume with a dortmet Mediatory smack.

Nest in point of curious Interest among the wlt a.njMin was the little mestizo lady, Miss Rosalie fSSm, who spoke with a tripping, easy manner tbat was refreshing in its simplicity erstyle.W hen ?he came to the identification of Lucette she looked the woman square In the facc with the con fluence of good faith. Mrs. Armstrong, who was rtttuur near, at once came to her feet, stepped in trontof Rosalie, and, raising her veil, said '?perhaps you had better take a good look at ^Rosalie looked at her, and said, "You are the wo *vlicuso ?a."

Before the witness could respond the coun | sci, Mr. McClelland, arose, and after a few remarks touching the fact that Mrs. Armstrong Is held a* a J witness for the people and not as a participant in the alleged crime, there was nothing left for him to do lu the case. Reports had been circulated, how ever, which would give the Impression that j this lady was in some way Implicated in the mur der, which was an act of injustice to Mrs. Arm i strong. Her relations and several sympathizing 1 citizens of New Y ork Mad engaged his services to I act lu her behalf. The father anil mother of the j lady are old and feeble, and she Is their only sup port. Mr. Hubbel had but one Interview with his I daughter since her arrest. She could see her child | and relatives at the jail while retained there, but she did not wish that ner relatives should visit her lu such a place. MOTION FOB DISCHARGE OR RAIL. He moved that she should either be discharged from custody or admitted to ball, as she would ouly be too glad to appear whenever wanted, and would give any testimony In her power most will- I Ingly, now that she had recovered Irom the emliar I rassment attendant upon her arrest. Coroner Whltehill expressed his sympathy for I the lady, but said that It would not be proper to ad mit lier to hail at this stage of the proceedings. He would consult the District Attorney, however, on the subject, und be guided by his judgment. THE OTHER ROSCOE. The Chairman of the Jury desired to ask Mrs. Arm strong a question :? "Mrs. Armstrong, you recog- | i nized the gentleman in court this morning as Mr. I Koscoe, but not us the same person you referred I to V" The witness explained that about six months ago | she occupied rooms with her child, and she was called upoft. by a Spaniard who desired to have a I roo? there; he agreed to have his meals with me , and pav me $3 per week; he then continued to come and take dinner with me, but did not pay for It; shf first net this man at ;?I2 Kroad way, where she went, In answer to au advertisement, to look for evplovment.

Tile drab Game. The General Railroad law of New Jersey cume up in the Senate yesterday for the last time. All the House amendments were agreed to, save one, and the bill was sent back to the House to be engrossed and printed. In order to prevent i any fraud in the engrossing and] printing; so that no nullifying word or clause may creep into it during its perilous passage from the Legislature to the Governor, a resolution was offered by Senator Stone that a committee ol one (rom each House be appointed to superintend the engrossing. Tin* was amended by Mr. Sewell i so as to exi?nd also to the printing, and it wafl adopted. The 'till was sent soon after to the 1 Governor, and it is almost certain be will aign it to-day. Tom Scott's represent!! ttve in Treaton said yes terday uioruing t? one of the promluent advocates of tills bill, "Now go on and build youp road, and we will build another alongside and drive vou out of the field." Hera is the dusky individual in the wood pile to whom the Hf.rami pointed when the bill first eiitered the Senate. Many of the trlends of the measure are accordingly moderate In their exulta tion, for they leel they nave been hoisted by ibeul own petard. Still, it will be only fair competition, | to whicn, under the law. everybody is entitled, ami to which no one can object. The Legislature will i adjourn on Friday, and the only question remain, i lug Is, Will No. au pass t In other words, will the] | dream of Patterson's public life be realised t No body would auswer tills question in the affirmative yesterday. Mr. McKmley's bill for submitting the question ol removing the State capital lrom Trenton to Eliza* beth to the votes of the people at the next Statu election was lost in the House by a vote or 31 to 18, The incidental bill, or rather the first of the Incidental bills, was laid on the members' deskq yesterday.

The conditions upon which tha lease was edected were, to wit? The Harlem Rail road cedes all their rights, privilege* and grantti to the New York Central Railroad, the New York Central to pay to tiie Harlem road eight per cent upon their capital; the Harlem road to retain tha city line of cars and all real estate this side ol Forty-second street.

The Hkkald representative , having obtained all necessary information, then withdrew.
