Depuly Marshal Williams and his bailiffs
bad the Criminal Court roomall to thomielvos
this morning up to a tow minutes ot 10
o'clock, not oven a man or boy spectator drop
ping In to seo If anything was going on or
likely to talto placo. It is perfectly manifest
that all Interest In tho Star Routo trials has
longslcco departod, and tho public aro en
tirely Indifferent aa to tho procoodlngs. In
stead ot coming In to nttond tho hoarlng law
yers aud others nrocontout with making com
ments, and theso aro all ono way, condemna
tory ot tho Government for, In tho nrst placo,
Instituting such frivolous casos, and thon
boing so foolish as to contlnuo thoir
prosecution from woek to wools without
bringing out tho slightest tostimony
to sustain them In bringing tho In
dictments. Tho opinion Is bocomlng pretty
general that It Is not so much tho oxpoctation
ot rushing out acaso thatlnducos tho prose
cution to keop on with tho groat tareo, as tho
heavy fees that tho Government roproionta
tlves aro niching from tho Treasury, that holds
tho special attorneys In court with their caso.
This Is, as ono attorney expressed himself
this morning, "about all that koopstho trial
agoing." It was a subject of discussion among
tho lawyers about tho court house to-day as to
how much longer Judgo Wyllo would permit
tho hearing to contlnuo and tho burlosiiuo to
t?o on. without taklnir tho caso from tho lurv:
and ninny wero of tho opinion that anothbr
week ot tho same oxperlonco as the llrst four
would bo apt to wind up tho trial. His
Honor, whllo ho could not tako the caso from
tho Jury until tho Govornmont coasod putting
In what thoy styled testimony, could call u pou
tho piosecutlon to put In thoir testimony
showing tho existence ot a conspiracy, and
should thoy tall to comply thon ho would stop
In and closo the farce by ending tho trials. It
has been stated by persons protty well In
formed that thoy aro sick ot tho wnolo affair
at tho Attorney U6ncrals onlco, and If thoy
could get out ot it genteoiiy anu gracciuuy
tliey would bo happy to do so. If that Is so,
tho stepping in of tho Court and termination
ot tho trial would doubtless provo a vory ac
ceptable escape for them.
At 5 minutes past 10 o'clock this morning,

Mr. Wilson thon lead tho lottor written by
tho witness, which showed, as did tho tosti
mony, that from April 30 to May 8, 1830, ho
got no mall at tho office, which was because
tho witness had carried tbo office off tho routo
without authority, and tho mall carrier deliv

ho had contracted to deliver It; and because
tho carrier would not follow tho postoffiio alt

The witness knew that Mr. Oooch and many

good men and ho would rely

that ho had for four months and a halt carrlod

ought to havo had six horsos on the routo at

this morning, tho knowing follows antlclpatod
a llttlo fun In tho proceodlngsot tho first hour.
The feeling existing In tho Benato Naval Com
inttteo In regard lo Mr. Robeson's new legisla

to defeat It and supplant tho whole appropria

Mr. Robinson, of New York, on tho Irish ques

nctvcfl ot tbo Members that thoy would bo
Uablo to go off half-cocked and ratso a rookery.
Tho wiseacres wcie not altogether disap
pointed. Mr. Robeson's appropriation bill Is said to
to havo been designed In part by Captain
John G. Porter, nnd anticipates tho retire
ment of Admiral V. A. Rowan. It also pro
vides that rear admtrnls shall bo selectod
trom tho list of captains Instead ot sontor
cnptalus, as tho rules of promotion now pro
vide. Against this schemo ot now regula
tions Admiral I'orler Strenuously Kicks,
and It Is remarked that It Is ho who has
worked up tho Senato eomtnlttoo to kill It.
It was this ruffled spirit that stalkod about
with a Bowlo lu haud, seeking whoso
bowles It might opon, that prompted
tho Binart men to nutlclpato troublo
during tho morning hour oftho llouso. Dis
cretion prevailed, howover. among the pro
Jcctorsor lho nutl-ltoboson movement, mid on
this score there was disappointment, for thero
w as nothing said or dono to lndlcatn tho rapid

It lay with tho Irish champion to "raise holl
