the "An
enjoymei
which at
the presence of Josie Mansfield attracted"
many to the court.
The Judge admitted the testimony of
Mr. Bailey as to the words used by
Stokes just before he entered the (irand
Central Hotel. He said he saw a lady
whom he met at Jjaratoga, and he
wanted to see her.
The prisoner 8tc kes was then Dlaced
ttie greatest success ! on the stand and testified that he was
bis in:erview with thirty -one years old: lived in Philadel
phia twenty years and then came to
-fw lork; nret became acquainted
with Fisk in July, l.iH.
The defense then undertook to elicit
from the witness what business transac
tions he had had with Fisk. Fisk's af
oi a is visit Wit-
Colonel Fluyder, a vivid remembrance
of which the gallant Colonel will
"rah!y carry back to England with
him. A soldier himself, Colonel Fluy

men who you were informed were sent
after you by Fisk ? Excluded.
Q. Had you been informed that you
were to be treated as Eaton was treated?
Did you, for a long time, day and night,
travel in covered carriages from fear of
attacks by persons whom you were told
were put on your track by Fisk"
A long discussion ensued, nut nualiy
the question was allowed.
After recess another sensation was
created by the return of Miss Mansfield,
smiling and bowing to the gentlemen
who stood up to make room for her.
The counsel then repeated the ques
tion. A. I always traveled in carriages,
night and day, after my trouble with
Fisk ; I should think for twelve months
I asked persons to go with me to protect
me.
i. Had Fisk told you he had a plan
all laid for railroading you to the Suite
prison?
A. Yea, sir: he said it was all ar
ranged with the District Attorney's office
to railroad me to the State prison. I
told Fellows, and he said it was not so;
he said they had graveyards for those
who crossed their track. That was on
Washington's birthday, at Miss Mans
field's. Witness said that Judge Barnard,
Miss Williams and others were present at
a dinner at Miss Mansfield's, when
Fisk talked of railroading him to the
State prison; Fisk had him arrested
once.
The counsel here offered to prove that
Fisk told Stokes, while they were on
friendly terms, or certain acts commit
ted by him, which proved him to be
unscrupulous, revengeful and a man of
great powers. Excluded.
A question was asked, whether at the
dinner at Miss Mautield's Fisk did not

In Decern ler last Stokes called at the
Tribune office on business.
At this stage Fisk's note to Miss Mans
field "Can you arrange to see meeitlier
early or late this evening? If so, state
hour and place. Yours, etc.,'' was put
in evidence.
Miss Mansfield was also asked wheth-
j er Fisk had told her that he had put per
sons on Stokes's track, and whether she
; had told Stokes, to which she replied in
I the affirmative.
I Mr. Shanks then related how, as the
! Drisoner and himself were walking uu
Broadway, Stokes told him that he was
followed. The witness noticed that two
men were after them everywhere;
wherever they stopped, the men passed
and halted; if they turned back down
Broadway, the two men came after
them. Stokes told him that he was
afraid of these two men, and that they

Cross-examined
Fisk bad eight or eighteen ; they were
accumulating in the house, as he got
iiiuninia oi pistols; i Knew mm since
November, 18B7, and knew Stokes since
November, 1S68; I resided in Twenty-third
street three years; he
was usually tired when he
came in and wanted to sleep,
but ordinarily was a very active man.
Fisk did not call at my house on the day
of the shooting; the first I heard of the
shooting was at half-past five cr six
o'clock; a newspaper reporter called
around and spoke to my cousin, but I
did not go down to see him about It.
To Mr. Townseud Fisk was a very
moderate drinker; I was introduced to
Stokes by Harry Hardy, of the Erie
railway, who is interested In Fisk's oil
business; Fisk used to carry arms at the
time of the Susquehanna, Pacific, and
J i-' v City difficulties, and at other
times, but these were state occasions; I
never saw Stokes since the shooting un
til to-day.
Miss Marietta A. Williams, cousin of
the last witness, testified that she com
municated to the nri wilier rerw&fo.t
tlien turning to I threats by Fisk airainst his life: she had
remarked j "Poor frequently seen a pistol with Flak ; she
he is. " She heard Fisk, in presence of Stokes, in the
trout parior, say to stokes that he would
railroad him to the State prison ; she was
in the parlor at the time, at the sugges
tion of Mm. Mansfield this was a year
before the shooting; she still Uvea with
Miss Mansfield and Miss Mansfield's
mother the lady now in court.
Robert T. Stooo testified that he is a
merchant, residing in New York; haa
known Stokes since lbon. On the sixth
of January be was near the Grand Cen
tral, and saw Stokes coming down with
a friend; saw him bow and point to
ward somebody In th hotel, and then
go Inside. Saw Fisk's an iag owning
veution to-morrow.
At a meeting of the National Execu
tive Committee at noon no decision was
arrived at in regard to the selection of a
temporary Chairman.
At a meeting of Bourbon Democrato,
at the Maryland Institute, at two o'clock
this eveuing, not more than two hun
dred were present, a majority of whom
were spectators. Of the delegates who
will not support Greeley, if nominated,
there were not more than twenty-five at
the meeting. Judge James R. Flanders
presided. Among those present were
Blanton Duncan, of Kentucky; James
Leslie and William White, of Spring
field, Illinois; Henry Sherwood, of Con
necticut, and William Reed, of Norfolk,
Virginia. A committee of ten was ap
pointed to make arrangements for hold
ing a convention to-morrow. In num-
oers ana importance the movement is
too insignificant to have any weight
with the Democratic Convention. The
indications are that Greelev will be
nominated with enthusiasm.
The tkening Journal publishes a let
ter this evening from W. A. Saunders,
a colored man and an elector on the
Grant Republican ticket, addressed to
the Chairman of the Baltimore city dele
gation to the late Republican Convention,
in which after expressing thanks for the
honor conferred in placing his name on
the Graut electoral ticket, he says: "A
profound sense of duty to my race, and
thedemands of an unselfish patriotism,
superior to mere partisan requirements,
compels me to decline the honor and to
sever my connection with the Grant
wing of the Republican party.,'
Saunders then goes on to state at
length his reasons for not supporting
Grant, and why he will support Gree
ley. Saunders lately held a position
as special mail agent.
Large numbers of delegates, and oth
ers, arrived here this evening from the
Northwest and South.
Tne Cincinnati Tragedy.
Cincinnati, July S. The shocking
tragedy of yesterday, in which a pioneer
and a respected citizen shot and killed
the boy Shick while trespassing on his
ground, is the common theme to-duy,
and is most profoundly regretted by Mr.
Brown and his friends. It appears from
additional evidence published this morn
ing, that the boys had trespassed on his
grounds for the purpose of stealing fruit
twice during the forenoon, and had been
driven away, and that instead of the
boy having entered the yard for a lost
bail, a number of the boys came seeking
iru.it. ii appears, too, mat
has been in the habit of
take the law into their own bands with
reference to the supposed inhuman mur
derers of Mias Belle Secore, who was
outraged on her way home from Sunday
schosl, two weeks ago, and then mur
dered and thrown aside to be partly con
sumed by the hogs, were this morning
proved to have been well-founded. At
a very early hour this morning the people
began to arrive in Celina, where the
prisoners, Jacob Kimble, Absalom Kim
ble, and Alexander M. -Cloud, were In
carcerated. The arrivals continued till
ten o'clock, when about three thou
sand persons had assembled. They then
surrounded the jail and took forcible pos
session of the jailer and disDossoaaed niin
of the keys, and after effecting an en-
Trance to ine ceils, tooa tnerelrom the
three prisoners aud removed them under
guard to a wagon. The place where
the shocking crime waa committed Is
twelve miles from here, uid the deter
mined crowd announced their determiu
mination to there remove the prisoners
and execute the sentence which an out
raged community had pronounced. The
procession then moved off quietly and
orderly. W nat subsequently transpired
is not known, hut the Vigilants are in
charge of men who will, it la believed,
not return till their prisoners have paid
the penalty with their Uvea.
