The Cask ov tub United Statbs vs. Ham
ilton, Eastkk, <fc Co.?After we went to press
Yesterday this case was continued. Tbe Gov
ernment witness, Pardon Worsiey, was on tbe
stand.
He testified (in continuation) that his first
^isitto Easter's establishment was about the
7tb or <Hh ol September; was positive as to that
timf did not stay longer than three minute";
was there some tune with a woman, who wua
represented to be his wife; bad travelled with
?many women whom he had passed off as his
wives, sisters, and cousins; knows Mrs. Chan
cellor; brought her through the lines; it was
apart ol his business 'o fetch women through
the lines both ways; Mrs. C went to Baltimore
with r>im in September.
To the question whether his wife was in Gov
ernment employ, objection was marie on the
ground thai it was not pertinent to tbe issue.
The counsel wished to show tha' the witness
swore that a woman was his wife who was
jjot. lie wished to show the intainy of the wlt
3hj^^r>iirLgui,d that the objection was well
mump icXii witness should not answer
4h ^question.
TFirst met Mrs. Chancellor here last April;
-con't ^now who introduced me; don t know
?where I was introduced to her; she wanted me
to take her South; I took her in April, she went
to Baltimore with me in September; my wife
is not here now; visaed Baltimore on or about
7th cl September with Mrs Chancellor. Mrs.
Chancellor asked for Mr. Whedon, of James
H. Easter's store; don't know where the clerk
came fiom; left Mrs. Chancellor there; I ielt to
^o aud purchase goods; I asked Whedon for
grey cloth: Whedon showed tbe goods to me; 1
bought two or three pieces; had no conversa
tion with Whedou about permission to sell
good>: Gen. Aujiur has the bills; the second
bill of goods wa- sent to roe at Washington by
Whedon: 1 kepi those goods asevidence against
the defendants; Government ordered me so to
do: Gen. Augur toid me to buy and then re
port to him; when Gen. Augur was away I re
ported to Col Foster, of his office; by doubling
bills I mean the bills were made out to me for
twice what 1 paid; 'hey are not signed
by Whedon; I doubled the bills to de
lray expense-; the Government knows I
doubled the bills: 1 didn't know 1 would
be held wnh my goods until I came
to Washington: the bills were made out
to Mosbv's men; tbe aegregate was made
out to me: 1 saw bill-bead sent by ex
press from Easter's store to me; saw no
others, don't know that 1 am a Goverment,
detective; don't know what they call me; am
not on any detective roll; on second visit to
Easter's store, Mr. Solomon A. Ryder went
with me: that was about a fortuiah' a^o; saw
two Easters and Whedon there, mat was the
7thor-th of October; I asked lor grey cloth;
said he would telegraph lor it; met Byder in
Ball imore; the goods were sent to me; Ryder
heard the conversation, 1 suppose: the goods
were sent to me; 1 reported this time to Col.
Poster, at Augur's headquarters, Gen. Augur
being absert: Geo. Knapp came here in lSti-l
"with me; 1 saw Knapp here this morning;
don't know what business I engaged in when
1 car.ie here: 1 don't expect large trains: never
said so to Knapp; never said I expected large
gains Irom tbe i onfiscation of seven oreignt
millions worth ot property.
t?. Did you tell Knapp so last night.
Objected io by Judge Advocate, anl the
roori was cle.tred to decide the propriety of the
qiip>tu n.
On re-opening, the Court decided that the
objection was not sustained, and the question
?was again put. to which the witness replied,
"1 did not."
Cress-examined by defendant ? Iiid not
knov. what amount would be confiscated; 1
told Knapp T would like to have one-eighth of
tiie gains: 1 told Knapp 1 supposed they were
summoned to break me down: it would be
dangerous to teji who were present at that
conversation Mr. Green was not present.
Well, who were present
Objected to by J udge Advocate, and room
Cleared again.
<?n re-opening tne Court announced that the
objection was sustained, and the witness va
cated the chair
6'eo. II. Kmerton, soldier, sworn, on part of
United States, aid testified as followsI re
side in Washington; 1 went to warehouse to
examine goods: think it was back of central
guard-house: 1 found several boxes and bun
dle; they were opened, and we f mud bills,
and also goods to correspond; one box was
marked Hamilton Las er Sc. Co , and C. O. D .
to P. Worsely, Washington, D. C
By Accused.?I saw a box marked Hamilton
Easter k Co., inside, and P Woiseley, Wash
ington. outside.
I'ardon WnrtfU'i rrcalled ?By the Judge Ad
vocate? Witness idea in giwug different re
preser.tations m relation to tbe woineu was in
order to assist him in his business, and prevent
detection: tbe goods weretakeu to Middleburg
where witne.-s saw them sold.
The c ounsel for the defense asked the witness
it he did not travel with one ol these women
as his raistrfeas, and represent her to be hi3
wife.
The Judge Advo. ate objected *.o the <iue?.
tion. and the ot jeetion was sustained by the
court
Th- counsel for the defense then asked the
wanes- if he did not, in the trial of Johnson
A. Sutton, represent one ol the;e women as be
ing his wife.
The Judge Advocate tgain objec ted, and his
objection was sustained
The Jnd>re Advocate here announced that
he would close the prosecution in chief.
Tbe defense then asked a postponement of
the trial, in order 'o allow time to procure wit
nesses from Baltimore.
1 be request era-1 granted, and the court ad

School*.?Puisuant to adjournment the day
iefore. tbe Board of Trustees assembled ir the
Aldermeu's < hamtxr, in the City Hall, at four
o'cioi k yesterday.
Mr Welsh, president pro I n, called the
meeting to order, and announced that the busi
ness up' n hicli ihey were called to act was the
report of tbe cc mmittee appointed to visit tbe
schools, inspect the roll book*. &c., and report
sucb matters in connection with the system of
keeping the re.ords, reports, and such amend
ments ol the rul-s as they considered of advan
tage to tbe schools.
Mr. Knees, Irom the committee, reported the
result of the inspections A number of the
scbcols were highly complimented tor tbe
manner in whirl; the records nad been kept:
o'.he: j were not so tavorably mentioned in this
resi ect The committee also reported several
bla c forms tor future use iu tbe schools, and
mi ?-sted additional rules.
< motion of Mr. Wight, the report was ac
re; ted.
'1 ne first recommendation of the committee,
n blank lorm of a register, was laid before the
board, and on motion of Mr Wight, the lorm
?was adopted, and the committee authorized to
have a sufficient numl?er printed for the us- ol
the teachers.
Th? secoud was a blank lorm of a monthly
Trpert. which was considered, and decided to
!>h :i: important improvement. I'pon motion
et ivir. Miller, tb>- committee wa- authorized
i. have an ample supply lor the use ol the
schools prin 'ed.
The auoitioi::ii rules proposed were a rule
M.ecilying 'be duties ol tne committee on the
_ 'leathers' In-titu'e. and a rule granting ad
ditional powers to the commiree on school
I. uses. Tbi- i art ot the report lies over uutil
ibe next meeting of the board.
Mr. Rhees presen ed, on behalf or the De
railment of Education of Cpper Oanada, sev
eral blanks in use in that department, and
moved their acceptance, with the thanks of
i us board which was agreed to.
The blanks of the Canadian Department
were an annual report of a school ol l>~ pupils.
The ti-acheis salary being per annum.
This report includes 17- items, with a blank
lolutr.n tor ?ach. Tbe school register, another
lorm, is a rattinr unwieldy volume, the filling
ol the blanks in which is a task to be accom
plished onlj by pHtience and perseverance by
any one unaccustomed to the work, and to be
lamiliar with it, reqatres the teachers ^special
attention. Those teacher* wllj schools who
find Uult with tn^ blanks to be tilled in the
Toutine of their duties, would never be per
suaded to adop' th-? Canadian blanks for
