Phyfer, in Chatham square, In January last, were obtaiued yesterday morning in the court of Oyer and Terminer. After this the case was opened by the prosecution, and the examination of wit ness followed. The trial will be resumed this morn ing, and It Is thought all the remaining testimony will be given to-day. Meantime Judge Brady ordered the Jury to be kept together till the dose ?f the triaL A writ ol certiorari tn the case of Edward ?. Stokes was granted yesterday by Judge Brady, in the Oourt of Oyer and Terminer. The object of the writ is to allow all matters outside the judg ment record in regard to which the counsel of Stokes claim the latter should be amended, to be carried before the Court or Appeals. The Judgment In the case and, by the way, the largest ever flled in the Supreme Court In this district, ?was flled yesterday in the County Clerk's office. "Various other documents were also filed at the same time. The Court of Appeals is getting through its heavy calendar with the most commendable alac rity. They yesterday presented a large batch of decisions, and expect to follow this with a second list in a few days. It is thought they will be able to finish their session here next week. in the United States District Court yesterday, in the case of Cyrus Whitney and Timothy W. Skin ner vs. the ferryboat Sunswlck, her engine, Ac., Judge Blatchford rendered his decision. The libel had been filed to recover damages for a collision, and the Judge decided that it must be dismissed, with costs. Yesterday the trial of the case oi Simon Donun and Christopher Flood, who are indicted for having conspired to defraud the government ou?, of the tax on 6,000 gallons of distilled spirits, manufac tured at the Spring Valley Distillery, Rockland county, was resumed in 'lie United Stales Circuit Court before Judge Benedict itad a Jury. The case Is still on, and will bo resumed to-morrow morning. Yesterday Oscar F. Wainwright was brought before Commissioner Shields on a charge of having given straw ball in a case iu which the government officials are at present making a thorough examination. It is charged that the accuscd, for the purpose of qualifying as bail, swore he owned a house in Broome street, which house, upon Investigation, turned out to be the property for the last fifty years of a member of one ?f our old Knickerbocker families. The defendant was committed in default ol $5,000 bail. Yesterday a man named Otto Haars, who claims to have invented a process ol photography which will do away with engraving, was brought before Commissioner Shields on a charge oi having in lus possession a plate for the printing of ten cent cur rency stamps. The accused states that be had no intention whatever of going into the counterfeit business, but that, as soon as he produced the plate In question he showed it to the National Bank Note Company as a specimen of what he could <10 in the art which he claims to have newly discovered. Mr. Haars was admitted to hail in the sum of $1,000. The government officials are satisfied that he has acted houestlv in the transaction. lliram K. Cooper and Frederick E. T. Randolph were yesterday lined $250 each in the United States Circuit Court by Judge Blatchford for not having attended when summoned to appear as Jurors. The distillery of James Higgins, 412 East Twenty fifth street, which had beeu seized some time ago, was condemned oy default yesterday In the United States District Court. Judge Bcsedict will not sit to-day in the United States Circuit Court for this district, matters In the Eastern district demanding his presence there. To-morrow he resumes his duties in this district. THE UIXON-PHYFER TRAGEDY. Completion of the Jury? Opening Address for the People? Examination of Wit nesses for the Proseeution? Details of the Shooting? Flight and Arrest of Nixon? The .Mysterious "Order of Red Men." ? The trial of Michael Nixon for the alleged murder ?f Charles M. i'hyler in Januury last, in Chatham square, waa resumed yesterday morning before Judge Brady in the Court of Over and Terminer. As on the day previous, the court room was densely crowded ? that kind of a croud al was s (.resent at murder trials, but where it coioes from a pro found mystery to every body? a crowd that seems to least with gourmand delight on the tragic recitals incidental to murder trials. The prisoner was brought into Court promptly on the opening or Court. accompanied by his little girl, whom he held in his lap. as on the tlsstdayoi the trial lie was accompanied yesterday by hi* wile, bearing lu her arms a nursing lniant. There Was no chaise in his demeanor, the same seeming apathetic dog gedness and sullen taciturnity characterizing luni as when first arraigned for trial. In striking con trast with him was the sleek rotundity, ruddy countenance of Mr. \v iiliam F. Howe, his eounsel, who, confessedly capable as he is or con ducting a criminal case, is evidently utterly inca pable of looking on the gloomy side of even the forlornest hope. Beside the latter sat his asso ciate counsel. Mr. Abe H. Huinmcil, busily employed In taking notes af the proceedings. The prose cuting counsel, as on the opening day, were District Attorney Phelps (who, terribly and earnestly severe as he is in bringing offenders against the law to punishment, has a Isce all radiaut w,th the soasfcine ol kindly cuarii v and burtor) and his as sociates, Assistant Di?tnct Attorneys Russell and Lyons. COMIM.KT1NO THE Jf*Y. At the close of the ilrst iiay's proceedings only j nine Jurymen had been obtaiued. To make up the | required complement, for which an extra pauel of 100 had t>cen ordered, did not prove as facile and expeditious a task as was imagined. Mr. llowe, in questioning the candidates lor the jury box, looked 1 exclusively alter the interest of his client, and, If there was a peg upon which to hang a doubt, naga- ? ?lOQsly availed himself of it. "1 have formed a hypothetical opinion as to the ' gulli of the prisoner,'" said one. "Coming events cast their shadows belore," an swered Mr. Howe, and be had the person set aside. "Have you formed an opinion as to the gum 01 I the prisoner?" he asked another. "I believe him guilty," was the answer; "from the accounts I read in the papers." "Could that opinion be removed by evidence?" j "It would take considerable e Tide ace." 'Then you believe the prisoner guilty 0 1 an Offence, and that he ought to be punished?'' ??Certainly." "You would take yonr seat in the Jury box believing him to be guilty?" "Yes, sir." Judge Brady came to the man's rescue, and said itiat the mind was like a camera, subject to im pressions. but which could be easily removed. He added that It was hardly possible to get intelligent men In the jury box now a days, because of opinions rormed Irom reading the papers, but an intelligent and conscientious man should lay aside all such print impressions and give his .erdict solely on the evidence. Mr. Howe premfcd his Duiat and the Jnror was set aside. it too* three hours to get the three jurymen. The following are the names of the Jury as completed titmm OflifUAfttfi JvMtt 4? 'UiMKVU.

It Is this class of crime and the brutal class of criminals that there Is a necessity to re press. iod he considered himself Justified In a&jtng that, An far an the able and dignified Judge on the bench and the District Attorney's department were concerned, every effort would be made to les sen '.he risk of the respeotable portion of the city of being slaughtered. He looked upon this trial as BometliiDK more than the trial of the man Nixon* He looked upon it, indeed, as the trial of that grand institution banded down by our lather*? the sys tem of trial by jury, li the twelve men acting as arbiters of the fate of the prisoner considered him guilty of murder in the first degree, after listening to all the testimony, he hoped they would have the courage to way ??? and be the m of punishing tiis culprit as he deserved, in oondumon Iw re cited the lacts of the killing as thejr expected to prove them, and urgod them not to allow their sympathies to override their judgment While they woutd naturally sympathise with the wire ana children of tne prisoner they must not forget the bereaved wife oi the deceased and her four father less children. He asked them to lay aside every other ceuslderatlon but their solemn oaths and de cide the case on the evidence alone. TESTIMONY FOB TIIB rROSBOUTtON.

Mr Howe moved that the evidence of the wit ness as to the pistol be stricken out. He Insisted that there was uo evidence that this was the pistol used by the prisoner. Judge Bradv said tfcat there was some evidence, as Nixon told the officer to go to Maria and get the pistol and she gave him this one.

A Writ of Certiorari Granted? Piling the Judgment Rrrortl?Twt'niy Days Allowed the District Attorney to An swer. Stokes' counsel are not aliowlag the grass to grow under tkeir teet. Yesterday, directly ou the opening of the Court of Oyer aud Terminer, Mr. Dos Passes 'applied to Judge Brady tor a writ of certiorari Hi the case of Edward 8. Stokes. The application was made pursuant to the sugges tion of Judge Brady on tbe previous day, when he announced Ins decision denying the motion to amend the judgment reoord, and glvlog it as his opinion that tne subjoct should be brought in tins way before the Court of Appeals, having compe tent jurisdiction to review all questions outside the jedgmeut record. Tbe application was grunted. The Judgment In the case of Stokes was also filed yesterday in tbe oeuuty Clerk's office, by Mr. Jolin Sparks, the Clerk of the Court of Oyer and Ter miner. It is the largest record ever filed in the ?u prome Court, and has taken the entire time of oue mau to copy it since Fobruary 23. Thin was done In accordance with the wrlc or error Issued by Judge Davis to the Court of Oyer and Terminer to return the Judgment record and bill of exceptions to Uie General form. Mr. Dos Passos also filod In tbe County clerk's office what are known in com mon law as "special assignments and errors In fbot." These assignments contain statement* in detail of the grounds on wblch counsel relies for a reversion of the judgment In this cue, independ ent of the reasons stated in the bill of exceptions. Tbe District Attorney bas been ordered to an swer these allegations within twenty days. Con- , eluding the list of document* filed were the alle gations of a denunciation of the reoord. The prsc tice adopted in this case, it la aaid, has not been resorted to for more than fifty years. BUSINESS IN THE OTHER C90ETS. COURT OF APPEALS. Important Question in a Divorce Suit. Before Chief Justice Churcb and all the Associate Justices. It ts unnecessary to state that before a .tribunal like the Court of Appeals, the questions under con sideration being exclusively dry questions of law, very little occurs of public interest. The Court however, since its brier session in this city has gone through an almost unprecedented number of caaea and yesterday hauded to the Clerk a batch of de' clslons, which will be lound below.

At, the opening of tho Oourt yesterday morning it was moved by Mr. Stephenson aud seconded l>y Mr. Ycnnl that the Court adjourn iu respect to the memory ol the late Mr. Bryau. Judge Joachimsen said he had known the de ceased lor tlilrty-flve years. Throughout that long period he had never known a man who, with the like culture, professional ability and recognized talents, had devoted himself so solely and un* selfishly to tho discharge of the duties of his pro fession and tho interests of his clients as Mr. Bryan, i'oor In the worldly acceptation of the term as deceased was, he will prove a serious loss to many a poor client whose cause he would have espoused and wlioso poverty may withhold others more worldly-minded lrom adopting a similar course Judgo Joachimsen then adjourned the Court. COURT OF GENERAL SESSIONS. Some Minor Cases of Larceny? Trttmte to the Nftmory of the Late Hugh Max well? Remarks ?f District Attorney Rollins, Mr. A. Oakey Hail aud the Citjr Judge. Before Judge Sutherland. in this Court yesterday Henry Helm was tried npon an indictment for misdemeanor, which charged him with compounding a larceny. It ap peared that the accused kept a tailoring establish ment, and that a man named Johu Mahoney pro cured a suit of clothes valued at $30, which a friend 01 Ills paid Mrs. Helm lor on the same day. There was really nothing in the case, and the jury ren dered a verdict ol not guilty without leaving tlielr seats. Henry Wilson was tried and convicted of stealing on one duylast mouth ironi the Uraud Central depot a satchel containing clothing valued at $32, tne property ol Isaac Sommers. There were mitigat ing circumstances in tbe ease, and tne .ludge modi lied the panishment to oue year's imprisonment In the htate Prlsou. Charles Beiyea, charged with stealing a horse on the luth of February, valued at $26, aud owned by Luke Fitzgerald, pleaded guilty to petit larceny, and was sent to the i'eniteutiary lor six months. James Lynch, indicted for burglariously entering the stable of Lawrence J. Moore, ^77 Spring street, on the 10th of December, pleaded guilty to petit lafcenv, he huving sioleu an overcoat valued at $26. Two months in the Penitentiary was the sen tence/ ? Archibald White, who on the 13th of Maroh stole $2 20 lrom feamucl P. Russell, pleaded guilty. Cer tain facts in extenuation were mentioned to His Honor, which Induced him to mitigate the punish ment to ten days in the City Prison. Forgery. Abraham Derrick, jointly indicted with George Reese, pleaded guilty to lorgery In the fourth de gree. It seems that on the 13th of March the Ac cused forged an order for three gross of Virginia leal and one gross of Peach Ulossoin tobacco, pur 8 or ting to have been signed by John Hines, 265 teenwlch street, which was presented at a tobacco factory in avenue D. The prisoner was re manded for sentence. All the cases on the calendar having been dis posed of, Assis.ant District Attorney Rollins rose and said that his attention had been called to the fact that Mr. Hugh Maxwell, au honored practioner at this bar, and who, tor eight years, was District Attorney of the county, was dead. He (Mr. Rol liVks) moved that the lollowiug be placed upon the minutes tu the Court:? While the mortal remains of the late Hugh Max well await in this city burial rites the District At torney and the practitioners in this court request that upon its minutes be entered a brief tribute to the memory of oue who, lrom 1821 to 1820. was District Attorney. He was a firm, incorruptible, conscientious and zealous officer. His llrmness was always subsidiary to justice and his zeal was ever tempered with mercy while public prosecutor. Many cases in the volumes of reports vindicate his learning as a lawyer, and there live many ol his juniors who can attest to this genera tion his eloquence and skill as au advocate, 't hese also remembered with pleasure his unvary ing courtesy ol maimer as a gentleman und lus genial sincerity of intercourse as a friend. At the ripe age ot eighty-six years, aud iu the mil posses sion ot his intellectual i acuities, cherishing classi cal learning, literary association and religious in fluences to his dying liuur, Hugh Maxwell lias passed into the second stage ot life worthily la mented and honorably to be remembered. Mr. A. Oakey Hall, representing the liar, ?cc ouded the motion iu a brief aud elegant address, lie said that it was most app.dpnate that His Honor, as an old District Attorney; that his iriend on the other sido of tlie Bar, as the District Attorney now, and himself, as one who had tilled that office for nearly twelve years, should join in a tribute of re spect to tbe memory of such an old officer. He (Mr. Hall) had heard His Honor say of a gentle man, "He was a man who, If he walked up Broad way, ail the world would look at with respect aud love." such a man was Mr. Maxwell, and, old as he was, it was not long since he (the speaker) saw him in the streets attracting just tne attention mat was given to the irieud of whom His Honor had once spoken. Though somewhat feeble, yet erect, with the head and hair ol a patriarch, and Intellectuality stamped upon every leature ol his face. Judge Sutherland, In granting the motion, re marked that be never bad tne pleasure of meeting Mr. Maxwell, but had heard a great deal ot him. Not only had he a high reputation as a criminal lawyer, bat was equally renowned as a clvd lawyer. His Honor thought that the practice of noticing the death of persons who earned justly a high reputation in the I' gal profession was very appropriate, and to him there was something de lightful in the idea ot dying ami knowing that one was not forgotton by his professional associates. Such notices oi respect lor the memory of deceased pri sons tended to encourage efforts for deserved fame in professional practice. The Court then adjourned. JEFFERSON MARKET POLICE C01HT. Highway ltohbery.
