This action must havo been tnken upon set-ret information, for Mr. Prince seemed to be one of the beet men In the box. Unless one should actually sit In the roitra and listen to to mimes of ihe talesmen as they are called out, it would scarc?'ly lie believed that ?o many Germans were In New-York. The Germans end i.rrmau Hebrews form nearly two-ihtrds of ihe panel. Thoy UHiiully make ?.??>.>>1, eouselentious witnesses and atten? tive and fi.lttifili Juror?. About twenty-five talesmen ti?ok the Maini ?me after another and wltb one aeoord ?hey all began to make excuse?. Finally Jame? Lynch was railed. He make? awnings at No. 1V.4 We?t Broadway.

Even the dull work of gettili!: a jury I? occasionally en? livened ny an amusing Incident.

HAMMOND ON COCAINE. HIS REPLY TO BROOKLYN DOCTOi.8. HR INsl.sTS THAT Hill DUCO IH NOT A TOISON AT ALL. Dr. Y'llllam A. Hammond remains complacent In his view? on coealno a? announced before tho New-York Neurological foclety some time ago. He is not disturbed by tho action of the Medical Society of King? County after the reading of Dr. J. n. Mrttttsnn's paper on "CoealneDoeageandCocafneAddictlc.il," in appointing a committee to draft a res'ilutlon to bo presented to the Legislature, " placing connine on tne list of poisonous drug?, to be sold only on a physician's prescription." Dr. Mattison ?aid that he had found fifty ease? of cocaine poiBouing, four of which were fatal, and characterized Dr. Hammond'? statements on cocaine as " mistaken" and hi? oouohulon? a? ? rash ami dangerous." Dr. Hammond expressed hi? view? In a frank.emphatic manner. " Now, for the first thing." ?aid he. taking up Tur. THiniVK article on tho action of the Kings County Medical Hoclety, " Dr. Mattison wauta a law passed plac? ing cocaine ou the list of poisonous drug?, to be ?old only on a phyalclan'? prescription. Uo and hi? associates evl denUy don't know what they are about, ami you may make tbat statement aa blunt as you please. There 1? no euch thing In existence as a list of poisonous drug?, to be ?old only on a physician's prescription. Now, ?ee bore." and Ur. Hammond took up a smodi book containing the statutes of this State on the ?iib|eet, "according to the law, It 1? simply unlawful to ?ell the poisonous drugs mentlonod In the two ?chodttles, A and B, without label? ling the bottle ' Poison' and marking the name and place of business of the seller on It, Anybody can go to a drug ?bire and purchase ?11 the aconite he want? on rcp re?eutltig that It I? for a legitimate purpoeo and giving hi? name and residence.

" Now." continued tun pliy?lclan, taking up a Record of the Halo of Poison?, used liy a well-known druggist of this city, and adding with a twinkle of hi? eye, " let me read off some of tlie entries here, giving the essential points: ' Two ounces of Par!? green, for roaehe? ; 2 or. laudanum, for a horse ; ig nz. phosphorus, forcxperiuienL' Why, a man might have got that to ospertiuent on hi? wife for all anybody know?!
