THE COURT ROOM.
The prisoner was brought in at 9 o'clock, band

viduals. He appeared quite downcast and anxious.
Immediately behind the prisoner toveral seats
were filled with snocial officers.
Edward 0. Parker and Scth J. Thomas, appear

Richard II. Dana, Jr., for defense.

Mr. Parker was about to open, whon Mr. Kllis
asked tho Court for delay ijr the purpose of prc

Mr. Commissioner I.oring expressed bis convic
' tion that the delay before had not been nbused by
1 the prisoner; the man had (Mr. I.. said in effect)
moved quickly as it was possiblo under the cir-
' eumstnnces. He had mado up his mind to liavo a
defense, he had sclcctod his counsel, and all were
hern: and now tho counsel, so recently appointed,
'had on their own behalf asked for time as lawyers
to preparo a defense, a request by no means unrea
sonable. As for the excitement without the Court
can tako no cognizance of that. A continuance is

Another routo, marked No. 8 on tho map, is

a north easterly direction, as marked on tho ac

down tho valley of this stream, by wy of Poland,
to tho intersection of our line in tho Mahoning
valley. Tho steepest grades upon this route
would bo east of Sulem, near tho lino of the
Ohio and Pennsylvania road about -10 fcot to the
milo. Tho remaining distance to Polund, tho
maximum grado would bo loss than 13 feet to
tho milo, and a part of tho distanco only six feet
to the milo. Tho gradiug aud briduiug would
bo less expensive hero than upon eithor of tho

would be considerably increased, say ubout 2i

there is no interruption, cither by ice or drouth
