THE CORONER'S INVESTIGATION,
&C-, Ac>, Aic.
Evtr a'uce tbe flight of Taker on the night of the Stari
wix H?l! tragedy, the public has bee-i in a constant
of ?xcitement a* to the result of the officers' labora
employed in ferreting cut tbe billing place of th? fugi
tive. Itays went by, but no definite information could
be obtained an to the whereabouts of llaker. The ni
thoritiei, an a general thing, teemed to view the matter
coldly, and theresult was. as all know, an entire failure
to capture the fugitive. Judge Stuart, who has been
watching the movement* of the police with a great d.-il
of interest, came to the conclusion that same bold pUn
should be formed and acted upon, to discover the plan*
of Baker's concealment, which he had reaton to believe
was not far distant from New York. Accordingly, he set
bimaelf to work, and, with th? assistance of one or two
confidential oflicsra, was soon upon the track. A num
ber of persons whom the Jnitge had reannn to anppoxe
knew something of the whereabouts of Baker, w?r? ar
rested, brought before him and what Information could
be obtained from tli?m relative to the matter wan ?e
;uied. The baggage of Raker was discovered, and a
secret mark was put on the bottom of his trunk, ao aa
to render it recognizable to tbe authorities in all the
principal cities of the Union. This piece of work
was telegraphed to the authorities in Philadelphia,
3oston, Baltimore, Albany, and all tbe principal cities
<ut West, which would render Biker's presruce pliinly
liscernlble, no matter what disguise he might assume
n traveling. Still believing that Baker was concealed
n or near the city, great exertions were made t > dig
over bis hiding place; and accordingly apiea were placed
ipon the trail of some of the fugitive's mint Intimate
riendi* A secret court of inquiry wan held la the
udge's private chambers, where a number of policemen
od pngllista underwent a rigid examination at the
lanla of the Court. From the testimony taken on this
r'anion, it appeared that whin Raker entered Lyng's
lace ia Broadway, ctrnercf Cunil atreet, he was at
ended by ft physician, who probed his wounds and pro
ounced him out of danger, aid fit for travelling; that
e had been aided in his ercapc by a Councilman and a
ollceman of the Eighth ward, and a number of the fancy
itn of the lower part of tbe city: that while Raker's
ccoirplice wa* arrested at Lyng's place at 3 o'clock in
ae morning, the alleged principal wan permitted ta re
ia<n in the house unt'l daybreak, when he left the
remixes unobstructed: that by a ruse those police
ho were really in earnest about the arrest of Baker,
ere drawn oil, and the ^Ifen ler permitted to escape,
?st having been disgui?e>l in one ot the parties' coats. It
alleged that he departed from Lyng's along with Co 'in
Juan Kerrigan, Lauiel i.inn, one of the Eighth ward

Jivery stsbles, where he remained but a ih'?rt tins,
inmates becoming alarmed at his presence, he was

<er to Jersey City, procured h's admittance into the

FOURTH I>AY.
Before Coroner Hilton.
At the opening of tli? inquest yesterday morning Coroner
Hilton informed the jury that he had caused the arre.it
of a hackii.an named I.ively, whom he had reason to
suppose knew something definite in regard to the uian
that drove 1 taker and hi* party ofT in the carriage; also
that be liad received a number of communications from
parties, without any signature, who intended to give him
some information respecting those who would, if thny
were placed on the stand as witnesses, reveal important
matters to the Jury; that upon his subpoenaing these
persons they all aeemeil to know nothing about the case.
He wished to state that any persons who were able to
give information ne?l not be afraid to give him their
nani(H, as he should not make them public unless he
deemed it of the greatest importance.

wheeled around and saw us looking at them, I imme
diately tapped Mr. I'oole on the shoulder, and told him

someone of the company then asked us to drink, and w a
were about doing so, wben Mr. Janeway said, ''Let us also
