taken by itself, is rather dangerous, except
in a closing appeal,. None but a man of
the highest forensic ability is capable of
ltabmhlating enthusiuas, aad yet remaining
cool, c6lleeted, guarded and acute at the
same tiMe. Frantic appeals about lhonor,
mourning wives, 'weeping babes, blasted
reputation, &c., are comparatively useless.
The memory of them is obliterated, when
necessary,by a few plain, yet forcible re
marks from the preceding counsel, and
turned unfavorable for the prisoner, by a
word from the judge's lips. Cross-exami
nation is the forte of your aente advocate,
and a masterly summing up of the results
obtained crowns the keystone of his arch
ofr Triumph. Frequently the cause is de
cided ere the witness leaves the stand.
We remember a case in which Mr. War
ren. wsa engaged, when the court, the
plaintiffs and the defendants were com
-pletely thunderstruck by a forensic coup de
main of this nature. One of those intri
cate and unfathomable will cases was being
hotly contested. The plaintiff sought to
upset a will, on the ground of its being a
forgery; but the skillfulnesa.of the plot,
the appittentcandor of- the, witnesses, the
unpretending appearance of ,the widowed
plaintiff, carried all before them, and Follott
the invincible, smiled blandly in the pros
pect of assur:d victory. At the conclusion
of the evidence for the plaintiff, while the
lenders were consulting whether it would
not be better to make terms and submit,
Mr. Warren handed in a slip of paper with
these words on it: "Let me try. I see
a chance." The veteran leader looked
. at Warren and after pausing a moment
in thought he said briefly-" Well, try
your luck, Warren; but it is of no use.
We have not a leg to stand on." Warren
smiled and walking over to his clients. witht
a very serious face, addressed some com- I
monplace remarks to them, and ap.
peered to take their replies for instructio.-s,
then turning to the court, he paid: "M 4
Lord, the plaintiff in this case is anzions
that the last given testimony should be re
peated for the purpose of being printed,
anl distributed among her friends. With
this v:ew, my Lord, I shall, if the court
pleases, elicit the required information, by
cross-examination." " Proceed, Mr. War
ren,'" said his Lordship. The witness, a
shrewd, thickset, well to do Yorkahireman,
with a bluff, hearty, straightforward man
ýex, having taken his seat, the cross-exam
"ination commenced by Warren asking the
wvitness to repeat his statement; which he
d id, in nearly the following terms. "I was
ca lied up to neighbor Oldeastle's by a mes
sen qer, saying that the Squire wasa dy ing,
and wanted me to witness his will. I din'nt

.bed-side, to the aLaall table, and. I held
Squire up, with a pillow, and he signed, it,
but seemed very much' tired for a while as
he sat watching us sigiiingafter him." In
answer to a question from Mr. Warren,
witness continued: "i 'ie 'torney seaid
the will and did all that, and Squire laid
his hand on it, and said he knowed it was
his, and his will and deed, or summat like
that " and I went home in a~r hour or so,

Mr. Warren.-" You !say the attorney

Warren had thrown the end of nls blue bag
over the will so that he could see it, but

turning, with impressive solemnity to the
witness and the jury, he asked in tones

Washington, Nov. 29.
The rebel Ex-Governor, Roger A. Pryor,
acting as p'rivate soldier'in the Confederate
army, was capture4 last Friday by our
pickets while attempting to exchange pa
pers. This was done in retaliation for the
recent capture of Burbridge by-the rebel
pickets. Pryor says, that Lee issued an
order for the return of Burbridge on Satur
day and Pryor will probably be returned as
soon as Burbridge arrives.
Since Pryor's capture, Burbridpe has
been dismissed from the army for disobey
ing the orders forbidding the exchange of
papers qr holding intercourse with the eneo
my on any pretext. Pryor is now in the
old capital prison.

may be agreed upon by commissioners, or
by States acting in their sovereign charac
