voters who were, by their accent, natives of Ire
land; they voted in peace and quietness; after
witness voted was on the ground for sometime;
heard that the "Ping Uglies" were about to make !
a visit to the Seventh Ward; thought that the
people of that Ward were able to take care of
t heinsclves without any assistance from the Plugs;

then Stoddaid became very much excited and

ter of Webster. Williams and Stoddard; they
w? re honest, peaceful, high-minded, uncompro
mising Americans.
L a). S. Kinsttj also testified to thrir good
character; saw Stoddaid separating two men and
tiying to keep the peace; Stoddaid appeared to
act moreevidently ;u>a policeman than the police
themselves; saw no obstruction of the polls; tho
polls were only closed while the commissioners
were at dinner, al>out an hour; a good miny for
eigners were voted In the evening; if Webster
and party had come down to take possession of
the polls, witness would certainly have seen
them; there was much less disturbance at this
election than on previous occasions.
The facts elicited from the evidence of George
Thomas, J no. Van Reswick, II T. Pratlier, Geo.
Drockerton, and William Cox were mainly cor
roborative of that of the preceding witnesses for
the defence. The evidence for the defence closed
here, and the Couit then adjourned.

manner, and broke up the ranks in the voting
line, the voters generally retiring before the ri
oters; did not hear Webster's words at that pie
cise time; witness was driven away himself with
the rest of the voter*, and went home; there was
a great deal of threatening and fighting, knocking
down of voters and other violence committed by
the rioters; the riot was general, the rioters
taking possession and the voters abandoning the
polls.
Mr. Moss was called for the U nlted State*?
was at the polls when the news came about the
marines; this was at the first precinct; Stoddard
then said that no foreigner should vote and ran
up towards the poll* at the same time; Warnach
came up to witness and asked him if he (wit
ness) was a tl^hting man; tol^l him no, but was
prepared to defend himself if attacked.
Cross-examined?Was ak>ont one hundred yards
from the polls at the time; witnesses attention
was upon Warnach at that time; was afraid he
would be killed.
The evidence closed here.
Mr. Key then proceeded to address the jury.
He alluded to the ingenuity manifested by the
counsel for the defence.in endeavoring to smother
absolute facts given in evidence by the United
States. In rases of riots witnesses may swear
they d.du't see what other witnesses swear they
saw; they may not see. but that is no evidence
that these fact. did not occur; the witnesses for
the United States have sworn to seeing transac
tions which are a disgrace to our country. Here
are a parcel of individuals at ting in concert to
prevent the citizens of a ward from exercising
their rit'hts of sutl.age; their legal rights. War
nach of Philadelphia, comes, this StiifflT-ho?e
man. and calls lor the A nti fighting men ; and en
couraging bv this bravado the riot. Tin *e men,
liarliet. Guilder, and others, are dragged bom
the polls and beaten brutally and prevented from
voting. The declaration of Webster that fo.el^r.
er* slioiild not vote there was commouted on with
great force by the District Attorney. The facts
of the case, he urged, plainly show a conce.t of
action. If the act shows this concert, itiey are
guilty, in every sense of the wo d, of the charge
made against them, of rioting. .Mr. Key preced
ed to sum up the evidence, commenting with se
verity iijion the certificates of good character
given by the witm s ;esfor defence, to the men who
vvere |m:iforming tliese disgraceful deeds.
Mr. Key was speaking when our rejiott closed.
John Hady terribly misliebavcd himself yes
terday, and came near |myin" the penalty of bis
1 if,- theiehy. He enteied the house of Mrs
Greene in the First Waul, knocked down a young
woman there, and said he would kill lie/. The
young woman took refuge in a iieighl>oring house,
and John billowed her there and battered the
d-wr* and shutters. He was arrested and sent to
jail by Justice Drury.
When Rady made hi* attack upon the young
woman Mrs. Greene snapped a revolver at him
tive times in succession, but fortunately for him
the pistol had b?-en loaded so long that the caps
were spoiled aud would uol explode

Thk At*xasd*IA Cocxtt Hoxictd*.?We
find in the Alexandria Sentinel the following ac
count of the circumstances resulting in the recent
killing of James Birch, which we presume are
true. We are gratified, indeed, thus to find that
the affair in no way identified the unfortunate
young man who lost nis life in it with the so well
known gang of rowdy ruffians who have long in
fested that vicinity. While under our observa
tion (for having Ions? resided near him we saw
much of him) we regarded him as an industrious
young man, promising in all things to make a
good and useful citizen. Austen, it seems, was
not a student in the Theological Seminary, as we
mentioned yesterday, but a teacher in the Sunday
school of tnat institution :
14 A fatal rencontre took place near Mount Car
mel meeting-house, Alexandria county, yesterday
morning, in which a man named J allies Birch
was shot by a lad named Mel vail Austen.
" Wc have been unable to obtain further partic
ulars of the sad affair than those which we give
below and which we have from the lips of Mr.
James G. Austen, the father of the lad.
"ltseeltks that in connection with a church at
Mt. Carmel. which is served from the P. K.
Theological Seminary, a Sabtath School has been
recently estabHsh?-d. in which young AuRten was
employed as a teacher. At a pic-iiic given bv
the scuool some time since a difficulty occurred
in which Birch and Austen fought. Hi nee that
time, a feud has existed, and on yesterday J\utt
before the opening of the exercises of the Sabbath
School, Austen was set upon by several persons,
among whom was Birch, and severely bruised ;
to release himself he fired three shots f.-oin a re
volver, with which, since the feud, he had armed
himself. One of the shots took effect on Birch,
terminating his life In a few minutes.
" Austen was arrested, brought to town, and is
now in jail. So far as we can ascertain no in
queat has been held upon the body of Birch, as
up to noon to-day the Coroner hud not been noti
fied of the occurrence.
" We are desired to say that the Star of lhi?
evening is in error, in stating that the youth who
shot Burch was a student cf the Theological
Seminary."
The pistol used by Austin, we learn, was not
loaned to him by Mr. Brown, but by a young
man in Brown's employ.

Tuf. Examination of the Junior male depart
ment of the Second district school, under the
charge of Mrs. F.mily Mye s, took place at three
o'clock yesterday in the presence of T. J. Ma
gruder and Josiah F. Poik, Trustees of the dis
trict. We were much gratified to see the vener
able and much respected John Sessford, sr., pres
ent and taking interest in the proceedings. The
third or junior class was first examined, and man
ifested considerable and fair knowledge of the
branches taught. Tii>: li:st and second tlasses
passed a rigid examination. Their exercises in
arithmetic, orthography and reading wercxxcel
lent, and the audience were much gratified with
their ready and correct replies to .ill questions
put to them.
Mrs. M. has h*d charge cf this sehool for the
iast two years, and from one of the worst it has
become, under her mild yet linn and decided
government, one of the best in the city. Many
teachers were present, gratified spectators of the
great improvement in this school, as also I)r.
Harbaugh, a form.T trustee, still manifesting by
his presence his interest in the public school sys
tem.
Robbery asd Arrest ?Yesterday, a young
fill, named Mary Miller, was arrested at the rail
road depot, by Conductor Shawon and Office'
Reuben Collins, on a charge of stealing jewelry'
Ac., from the residence of A Hyam, Esq., in
Baltimore. The articles were found in h*-r pos
session, and *he was committed to jail by Justice
Hollingshead for further hearing. Mr. Hyam is
unwilling to prosecute, if there is any chance to
reform the young girl, now about seventeen years
of age. She was employed in Mr. Ilyam's family
at the time, and, though other arti< les of value
silver plate, money, Ace., were near by her, she
passed them to take only the gold. If the prose
cution is continued, she will be taken to Balti
more by a requisition from the Governor of Mary
land
A Muss was raised in the yesterday evening
train of cars from Baltimore, in this wise:
Passenger No. I. who represents himself as one
of the quietest persons in the world, had taken
his seat in the cars, when passenger No. 2. a
peaceable man when sober, but not sol?er at this
time, took a seat behind No Land persisted in
using that gentleman's back for a footstool
No. 1 iequested No 2 to remove his feet.
No. 2 signified that he considered that request
au insult, and demanded saiisfaction.
More words followed, and then came blows,
and it required the interference cf the conductor
to separate the parties.

Chief of Police of ten officers last week, shows

Tiie Liberty Club, albeit the unpropitious
weather of yesterday, had a numerous party on
their down-river excursion, and managed to pass
a downright pleasant day. Scott's band furnished
excellent music, and Relchstein did up the cater

We hope the Liberty boys will repeat their ex
cursion some line day,' audgive their ?'ilends who
missed the one of yesterday another opportunity.
Caution.?We learn that, on Saturday night,a
forged order In the name of Charles S. Waliach
was passed upon Wall A Stevens for clothing.
We have no doubt that other forgeries of this
gentleman's name have been per pet rated, and it
will be well for the public to be on the look out.
