The Cask ov Dr. K*a?bt.?The trial of Dr.
J. B. Keaaby, aogeon to the Board or Enroll
ment of this District, charged with brine to
g.iged in procuring substitutes contrary to the
Met of Confess, with wilful neglect to make

tial rooms. No. 1SJ G street, between 19tfi and
*2??th streets, (to which the Court removed yes
terday from the old court-maniai room at 167
11th street, over Butler's restaurant.)
Thp proeeedings of yesterday's session hav
ing been read to the court, t>e Judge Advocate
stated he would close the testtmony on the
part of the Government: two witnesses were
not present, and he could not say wheu they
would be, and stated he would move, in case
they appeared betore the cause closed, that
their testimony be accepted.
Mr. L. G. Hine, counsel for the accused, re
plied he was unwilling to commence the de
fense until the testimony had all been taken on
the part of the prosecution, as he did t^ot yet
know what the defense would Be required to
disprove.
The court was hero closed to consider the
question.
On re-rvssembllng, the Judge Advocate with
drew his request from the record, but renewed
his proposition to the accused, and announced
the testimony closed on the part of the Gov
ernment.
Pr. Gfo. E. Woodbury, sworn tor defence.?Is
assistant surgeon in the 2d District of Colum
bia regiment; was In the Board of Enrollment
from the l-Hh of September to the 10th of Octo
ber inclusive; lie was engaged in examining
substitutes before the Board of Enrollment,
corner of iPth and I streets; witness stated that
he had seen the book before which was jnst
shown him, and on bein* referred to page 113
read the entry of Peter Alexander as bt>ing ac
cepted, and stated the entry was in his hand
writing; it was dated Oct. loth; was examining
substitutes at that time.
Witness was referred toaslipof paper which
contained the name of Peter Alexander in his
handwriting, which the Judge Advocate ob
jected to, as it was not an oilicial paper.
The defence stated that it was usual for wit
ness to make a note of such on slips of paper,
and then send them to be recorded on the office
book, and that this was the identical paper that
witnees made the memorandum on of his ex
amining Alexander
The court was cleared, and oil reopening the
Court announced that the memorandum was
not evidence of itself, but might be referred to
by witness to refresh his memory, and then to
make his statement.
Witness resumed.?Dr. Keasby's business
was that of examining drafted men; this was
on the lower door: witnees examined Alexan
der; his room was up stairs; witness could
only recollect having passed one man which
had been refused by the accused, he was a
crazy man; the accused told him he was crazy
and ordered him to be rejected: does not recol
lect the name; things lie was a colored boy;
was present several times when the accused
was examining drafted men; he was always
strict and careful in his examinations.
Question ?-From your experience there,
from day to day, would it he possible for a
person to know whether men appearing for
examination had been there before ?
Objected to, and the objection sustained.
By Judge Advocate ?Have been assistant
surgeon since November, lst>2, of the *Jd Dis
trict regiment; never had the rank of snrgeon:
tne witness kept no other record than was put
on the book now before the conrt; was ordered
before the court: was not solicited to appear;
could not name definitely any numbsr of men
the accused had examined in his presence; saw
the accused examine h diseased man, (naming
the disease:) thinks the judgment of the ac
cused always agreed with his regarding exam
inations of men in his presence; witness thinks
he examined 'iOO men; thinks he examined the
greater portion of the men presented as substi
tutes; could not? tell from the book how many
he examined, as he did not record all the names
on the book himself: does not recollect the man
Alexander except from seeing his name tm<the
book hi his own handwriting.
To the Conrt:?The -slips of paper referred
to were made after the record was made in the
foooic
By Defence ?The name of Peter Alexander
was recorded on the second floor in the book of
the Board; the book was kept on the second
floor while witness was in the office; was there
during the draft; the book wa> kept in his room
duricg his attendance?between 10 a. m. and 3
p. m.; witness stared, the name of Peter Alex
ander was recorded on the book on the second
flcor, because he never made an entry on the
lower floor; was always called, on consulta
tion, down stairs, and not to examine reciuits.
