TriaL?if John ?'. Colt for the ?Iurdcr of
Canine] Adntni.
A? rune ??'clock the Court Room contained onlv
tne smcer?. the prisoner and one or two reporters.
1 he seat? were all empty, the utr'cer; were bustling
abcut and making preparations for the important
trial and tor the accommodation of the reporters
and other*, and the prisoner, who was brought in I
under en?rge i f .liHcers F. F. Smith, Rciyca. and !
C"i"-in, sar. alone at the st.?ve. with his back toward
door engaged i.: reading a newspaper. He i
was dressed as on Monday. and had not changed* in
bis appearance at al! except that his countenance !
\vai now tlulhed and he evinced more anxiety ami i
rest'es-ner-. and occasionally turned to notice the j
pifparations tor hi- trial with more interest than
he manifested on the former occasion. The pris?
oner was brought into the room at a very earlv I
hour ::i c.rdct to escape the ahndyanec of the crowd, s
w hi thronged the halls end gathered around the
passage ways in outer ta obtain a sight of the pris
oner. When 1 is brother,Samuel cam'1 in the pris?
oner turned aUcFst; shook him cordially by the hand,
and for some m'nutr?.*: the two were enlaced in
car:;e-t conversation They both soon left the !
room for a short time, and Cult again took tip the j
paper, which hi; read with great composure, j
Those summoned a> tale-men gradually came into |
the room", none others than these, witnesses, and |
others interested i:t the trial. betHir ndmirteu. A j
trerncnd?u? ciowd. however, assembled about the I
entrance, but the excellent arrangements of the j
constables prevented every thing like disorder or
excitement. At bait" past nine there were some
forty persons in the room. Witnesses graduallv
en roe in, and ore' or two female friends of Mrs.
Adams who were present, however, merely as spec?
tator. Two female witnesses al.-o came in, bur.
Mis* Henshaw from Philadelphia, on whose ac?
count the trial has been so often postponed, was
'not present, although it h understood she is in the
city. At. a few minutes befure 10 ' Old Hays.' the
li:2h Constable, crime in, walked about the room
in the exercise of his tutelary functions, and spoke
to several persons, took a look at the prisoner, and
walked off. John A. Morr.ill, Esq. of prisoner's
counsel soon entered, and for a few minutes was j
engaged in clo*e and earnest consultation with the |
defendant. At 10 o'clock the room wus full and
the clamorous crowd about the ?borgave the Sh>rirT
employment and r.o little anxiety.
Judge Kl.v r. with Aldermen Pgrdy and Lee,
came in at precisely ten minutes after ten ; the
rnclamati e; w as read by the Crier, and Mr. Mo it
a ell, in answer to a question by the Court, said
thnt the rest of prisoner's counsel would be in in
a tew moments. Mrs. Adams then came in.
dressed ma on Monday. Robert Emmktr, Esq.
soon entcredj and the District Attorney (Jam^s R.
W in ; im,,) called on the case of Cot.t. The pris?
oner took los seat the bar, and the Judge ordered
the officcj to -ee that all petsons were seated, and
perfect silence preserved.
The follpyvirig name- were i ailed as petit jurors,
who ans wet d. \Vm. Henderson. [Mr. Emmett
said mere was an objection to the jury, which
would be presented on calling the particular jurors
for this Irin!. The District Attorney asked to know
what the objection was, and Mr. Emmett said that
the ex^rci.-e of the power by the Court to summon
a tales .it three hundred was not legal : as the
counsel w as entitled to inquire concerning them,
which th-'v were unable to do from lack of time;
s.i that they had no fair and legal chance to chul
Isio^e.]
The calling "'" tl s names was then proceeded
with; and two hundred ami twenty-eight of the
three hundred summoned answered to the call.
The Court room wits? now crowded to suffocation
und it was with the greutest ilirrieuiiy the passage
to tiie door could be kept open. The passage
wava through the building were also thronged
and large numbers had collected around the outer
doors.
Mr. Selden asked whether the ballots for the
tale- had been introduced into the box with the
ballots of tiie original panel. He wits answered
that the) had, and at his request it w as entered un
the record.
He then went on to say that the interposition of
the Court i:: tin- case was required mainiy because
sufficient time had not been allowed to the counsel
of the prisuner to ascertain whether any of the ju?
rors who had been -ummu.ned were indifferent ir.
this matter, and were then ht. persons to .si- oh a
jury. He went on to discuss the nature of Trial
Lit Jury and the intstnt of the statutory provisions
in givinc the Court power to order a taies. He
gl tnted the statute made ho special provision as t*
the time but required tbw names to be given to the
defendant's counsel. In this case the tales was
ordered on Monday and it was not until 9 o'clock
on Tue-dav niijhr that he had received any notice
of the names of those summoned : and he main?
tained that it was utterly impossible between that
time ar:d this to !?arn any thing about the jurors.
If the jurors v.etc challenged, he said those chal?
lenging ntu-t prove that they are indifferent, attti it
was utterly impossible to do st? ;n the present case,
lie argued* this at considerable length, saying
that to scrutinize three hundred jurors within twen
tv-four hours was just as irnpossihle as to scrutin?
ize the whole of the country ; aad he said that as
fur himself he did not know rive individual? on this
pa~ei of three hundred, and he was tnerefore in
no condition to scrutinize this panel er to act f*r
his client, or to avail himself of the privileges
grunted by law. and this he believed to be theca-e
with his associates. And more uian that, the pri?
soner's counsel were not only eeprived of the pow?
er of .-crurinizmg tue tales of three hundred, but
of the original panel, for the nineteen names had
bee;; indiscriminately mingled with the.others.?
He urged trat this was not such a trial as is seanred
bv the aw to the prisoner. It was not to procure
delay in the trial that, this was urged, but if the
C^urt re-rsisteii in this course he must say that the
pri-nner's counsel would be driven to say that they
could not ge o;: iciih ihe defence, for it was not
possible to secure any thing like a fair trial t?
their client. They a-ked time to examine the pan?
el, and it should be completed as soon as possble,
even to-aav if it could be done; and they request?
ed until the day after to-morrww to examine the crar
acterof those summoned a? petit jurors. At 10
o'clock last night he had only received half the
j panel, and up to the present time they had not read
ever the whole; He said that he never would un
I oertake tuex-ro'- the right of chaiienge >intil he
I knew sometr.ini of the juror introduced : and he
j intended to be able to prove his partiality, if any
ex -ted. before- rte was admitted into the jury box.
He then asked that the Court w?.uld order the
c-iunsri to be furnished with a list of the panel, and
that they might have -utricient time?at least two
davs?to examine it.
JE NO. 30 Ai\N-STBEET.
SO- 2-1-1
J. R. Whitisg, Esq., the District Attorney
-a\i that the -'raetice of this Court baa bees e::
tireiv aineren: irorn that spoken of bv the defen?
dant's course!: he also read from the statute sec?
tion-- directing the method of organizing the jurv :
and said that the practice :r. this Coart had been,
when less than twenty-four answered to their
names from the original panel, the Court should
summon a sufficient number from which to choose
a jury. He adverted to the case of Ezra! White,
in which a precisely similar mode had. been fol?
lowed without objection. He quoted various sec
tions of the Revised Statutes sustaining his view of
trie question, and directing that when the new
panel shall be in attendance in the Circuit Court,
the old panel shall be discharged' There was no
statute directing the sheriff tu give to the defen?
dant tfa?i names of those summoned as talesmen:
and the case was by r.o means without precedent.
If the prisoner's counsel had this objection to -tier
it should have been done when the erder was
made trahd moreover they might have gone into
the sheriff's otr.ee and been present at the selec?
tion made. The statute, he maintained, has been
completely complied with in this case. He ask-'d.
aie?, w hen this trial w ould be gone on with if the
Court were only to order twenty-foui talesmen at
a time and alhnv in each case time not only to as?
certain the occupation. &c, of the summoned, but
also the characrer of their hearts, as was said bv
tiie opposite party. It cjuld wersr be completed.
He acknowledged that great publicity had beer,
given to this case, bur this was ouly a misfortune ot' "
the prisoner and not thn fault of the pnblie. He"
submitted that if the coutse of the defendant's'
counsel should be followed it would be impossible ?
to brine 'he case to trial within the limits of the
term. ' Give tue a man worth half a million,' said
he, ' and give his counsel a chance to make the ?
inquiries intended by the counsel and I might de- |
fy you to convict him.' The jurors were to stand
as unbiassed in behalf of the people as in that of
the defendant. He supposed that the Court had
reflected upon the subject, and that if the objection
had been made at the proper time the motion
might have been granted ; but as it was. be ap?
prehended the trial would be ordered to go on.
It might be necessary, he said, that the venire in
this case should be changed:, but the prisoner
was hot at preser.t entitled to any delay. He had
no personal objection to a postponement,but it"the
case was to be tried the selection of a jury must
go on.
.Mr. Selden. in reply, contended that in every
case the prisoner had the right to inspect the [>a
aei. and went on at some length to answer the re
marks of the District Attorney, and in reiteration
of bis former statements. In the right to challenge,
!.e maintained, was involved the right to be availa
od of all the means 'if challenging, aad it was as
much the light of the challenger to call testimony
as to ask the.juror whether he was indifferent or
:i"t. He repelled the insinuations that toe client's
counsel had been remiss, and said that he was al?
armed at the statement of the Public Prosecutoi
that the jury could be corrupted by money, and
said that if this was true his client stood but a poor
chance. The prisoner, since tiis arrest, had been
deprived of every copper, undone was not sur?
rounded by wealth or any of the appliances ui
money: the family were poor; they had gone
down in the disasters of the times and were now
unable to visit the prisoner, who was attetided-oleiy
by a brother who might be said to be dependent
upon counsel for the nu-ans ot carrying on the trial.
He tru.-ted for the safety of his client that the sug?
gestion of the Public Prosecutor was utterly un?
founded. It the panel had been drawn as was sug?
gested by the District Attorney, there might be
anothei violation of the law: they were entitled to
the selection?to the judgement of tiie Sheriff and
were not to have the |urors drawn troiiuhe count)
jury box.
The District Attot ney said he used the word se?
lected and not drawn.
Mr. Seiden went on to say that, assuming that
the Sherifl bad properly performed ins ?buy in this
respect, he might stHt>- by affidavit, if oeees.aiy,
that they had applied at the Sheriff 's uffice, but
bad not f>--en utile to obtain tie- panel until last
night. He did moreover suggest on Monday, when
the order was made, that another day should be
granted, although he did not urge it. Tue defend?
ant's counsel did not ask that only twenty-four
should be summoned. Under the present circum
1 stances of the case, they were willing to have a
I larger number; but as it stood, they had no oppor
i tunitv to scrutinize the panel. The ai-gument ot
' the prosecution, he said, was an argument against
j the whole tight of challenge ; and the Court were
I either obliged to cut off the right of challenge, or
I allow them power to scrutinize the panel of 'lUO.
; Had the panel heeu limited to iweuty-four, he
I would not have ask?;d the delay of a -ingle moment,
j If the ca?e of White was intended to become a pre
\ cedenr, it was time that it was stopped, for it led
j to a direct violation of the statute. Thar, case,
I however, was one where there had been a previous
( trial?ijuite different from the present case; for
; from ail that appears, a jury might have been em
? naneled from the nineteen who first answered.
I The Court therefore, he maintaine-l. were driven
J ?for the defendant asked no favor?to secure to
him tic- right of challenge! The spirit of the rule,
he said, was that the hist tales never should be sv
large as to preclude scrutiny, and that all succeed?
ing tales should be less than the first, unless the
first should be set aside. If necessary, it would be
reduced to affidavit that due diligence pad been
used to procure the panei, and that t was riot till
10 -/clock this morning that the complete panei
was obtained.
The Cobrt said, that for the Court itself, his
statement was sufficient; it be wished u> secure
the right of his client, however.it roust be reduced
to arhddvit.
After soroe consultation.
The Cor.'RT decided that this trial must proceed,
and went on to explain the grounds of this deci?
sions. Tue provisions of the statute were read
directing the summons, and Judge Kent said that
the practice had been heretofore such as was now
contemplated; and he considered it necessary fn
order to secure the administration of justice. The
ca-e of Ezra White, was in point, although there
had been a previous trial ; for the fact of notoriety
was the main consideration. He said that tne
Court would do ail that patience ccu'd do to secure
a. jury, and that in order to do this the large num?
ber of three hundred was summoned. It appeared
teo that the statute had not mad* provision for the
scrutiny claimed by the coussel for the prisoner,
tor it granted the power to summon a ta^v's from
the bystanders; though this had not been chosen,
because the Court were opposed to selecting a jury
from the habitues of the Court.
If :ae counsel labored under difficulties, he could
only refer them to the minute provisions for chal?
lenge made by law. He therefore ordered the trial
to proceed.
Mr. Selden then said he wished to embody in
the shape of an affidavit the facts stated, En order
to make ase of them at a future suige.ot tbe trial.
Which he was allowed to do.
The District Attorney said it should be remem?
bered the objection was not made until the bahot
were put into the box. _ . . , ^ m -

more than half an hour elapsed before the selection

ajSdavit --waV ?ed, ahd Mr. Seiden said that the.
Court would notice that defendant's counsel ob?
jected to the panel itself.
?iie prisoner was then ordered to stand up, and
the usual proclamation was 'read. The Clerk in
: rmed the prisoner that he was entitled to a pe?
remptory challenge of'twenty. The following
names were then called :

that tie hud formed no opinion oh the subject, but.
