Fierr. On Cwl Correspondent,
London, Fri.lay, May pf, irt?b.
I wrote to you last Tuesday, and whit I then
nil of the gene ral ?t?te of public affairs h ?tili true.
We are in the Whitauntide holiday-, with uo Par
lianient, and little going on. Th > grivat topic of
the <l*y ia the trial of William Palmer?aa event
which causes unparalleled interest, from the man'it
pe* it ion. from the horrible nature of the charge*,
and from the fact that p-dsoniog aeems to bo
? specially the crime of the d.*y. There is, no
doubt, a fashion in Crimea as in everything else.
They vary according to the- periods. Science m
active, and is always being d'fl'ised iu boohs; and
h i ce the fatal * fleets of drugs are easy to learn,
as also the difficulty of investigating into theso
? fleet - . IV- 4VllM . what with railways and tho
telegraph, no man can hope to escape undetected
alter a rio/tnt crime. Again: consider the new?
temptations afforded by Insurance, and it beeoraea
clear that giveu a criminal (in every iff. Aeis much
the same follow)?secret poisoning is a probable
way in which he will goto work. This is so widely
felt, and such suspicious stories have been set
afloat by Insurance Companies, that we all feel that
Palmer's case is a great representative affair. Tht?
common public think him guilty, and fear if he get*
off through scientific difficulties that it will be an
ci coiirageuieut to murderers in postt. lawyers
think that the case will be diiffciilt, delicate and
refined?which ia fArir interest in the matter: and)
I know that at consultations up to the very time ol
the trial, both sices were confident of success. So,
altogether, the trial began on Wednesday wirb
tieiiietidi us interest M all bauds; aud it fills whole*
sheets of the papers. The Lord Chief Justice pre?
sides, aud every circle- of the building is crammed'
with spectators from Lord Derby ana Lord (!rey,
down. The prisoner was a racing man, and I sup?
pose Lord Derby, who is a racing uifiii too, feels a
kind id' philosophical interest in seeing how the eaeci
goes. Your readers, in the absence of political
news, will not be sorry to hear how it proceeds,
1'aimer, you have no doubt heard, was a Staff?
ordshire surgeon, living in Kugeley ther?\ of decent
middle-class education aud position. He don't
look a villain, but is an oruinary-looking, ruddy
man. with a good forehead, too, and somewhat
coarse and plausible iu air. The family seem tei
have been rather a bud lot. as people' say, in their
private lives. He himself was not remarkable
one art] or the other, I believe?rather popular,
ii dee.'?a shrewd, clever surgeon, fond of the)
turf He kept racers, betted, knocked about If
gland among the same class of men. aud latterly
only '? practiced" a little, apparently. Thechargo .
on which he ia now being tried (there are othera
in reserve) is for the murder of one of his intimate*
friends?another eporting man of the same class
in life?John Parsons Cook. He is accused oi
poisouing him at Kugeley, iu November last, with
antimony and with sfrvchuine.
It is quite certain that Palmer's money affairs
were desperate. Cook had just made a "hit."
and it is supposed not oajl) had money in his pos?
session, but had Hanns against I'.-liner. In No?
vember they were both at Ifugeley together,on the
usual intimate teima?Cook at the Talbot Arms
Inn, Palmer running in and out to see him, and
having him quite uuder his control, obviously. For
Cook was a weak, foolish creature?a kind
of mild " fast man"?not debauched, but
a man of pleasure?and obviously felt that Palmer's
was the stronger nature. This is a kind of rela?
tion that one sees every day between this kind of
men?something like that between Sir Mulberry
Hawk and Verisopht. Well, it comes out in the
evidence already heard?the hotel servants' and
local surgeou's evidence?that Calmer acted at
once as "chum" aud as surgeon to poor Cook;
carried pills to bim, or broth, or braudy and water,
as the case might be; that Cook was taken sick
alter some broth so carried (and which turned sick
a servant also who tasted it); that alter being sieh
be was seized one night with terrible convulsions;
that again Palmer was with hin ,- that next night
tic u ,i a again seized with convulsions, and so died.
I'almer is throughout on tho scene? before the
sickness, before the convulsions, before the death.
Calmer has abundant opportunities ; Palmer s
visits suit the times, and Palmer in known to have?
books on poisoning, and to buy poison. On tho
other hand, if the man did not die bv poison, how
did he die ' Not, say the doctors, by epilepsy or
apoplexy, but with all the symptoms of tetanus,
which is n known result of strychnine. Tho man
being dead, Palmer is about the room, and money
and betting-book d'sappear. The man being dis
sected, Palmer endeavors to prevent the jar con?
taining a part of the body from reaching London
safely. Here, surely, are a number of circum?
stances all pointing to Palmer's guilt. Of course,
you will understand that mine, too, is a most bar?
ren iiiinmary of what, in its abridged tonn, iu a
newspaper even, fills lanes of type. The defense,
I hear, is to consist of minute iioHjical evidence, ??
to the nature of tetanus and aa to the appearance*
on dissection. There are fears expresssd that all
this will bewilder and dazzle the jury; but then
the lawyers arc prepared for it, and Campbell will
sum up. no doubt, with a spec al eye to making it
all intelligible. If the man escapes in the ease of
Cook, theie are the cases of his brother aud bis
wife waiting lor him; and should be ooaifomm
law I fancy he would have a scratch 11 escape the
populace. liut I scarcely think he w ill rjaoiPO tha
law, and I am sure he will have a fair trial. In?
deed, it is a spectacle of do common dignity--fto
grand care of ?-verybody to be impartial. This it ia
ai I , livesreven nee to law and security to iif-.,and
I an. quite sure that of the tarn partiea, criminal
ai ii cietj, criminal in England 1 ii now the best
cibi.ee, gentially speaking. B) the way, 1 have
