The trial of 3icX,eodT
Mr V.--Werd you the owner of the steam
boat in the year 1837?
Witness 1 was. It was the Caroline.
In December she was lying in ihe canal at
Buffalo, and I fitted her up, m and ran her to
Schlosscr. On the 29e!i December I run her
to Scblosser, arrived these about six in the
evening, and made her fast with a
'ble to a pile at the end of the dock. As
jis wo got our suppers w set our watch and
vent to bed. On board of steamboats or ves
sels, it is usual to set a watch over night.
Our watch on that night was set about 9o'
clock. Sylvanus Saring was one of the
watch that niht. I do not recollect the oth
ers, about 1-2 o'clock I was awoke by some
of the hands, who had been to Niagara Falls,
came back and finding their bciths occupied
by strangers, they cailej me up, and I direc
ted the strangers to got up and give my hands
their berths. While on deck one of the
hands told mo he saw a boat approaching. I
iold him to look after it and see who was in
it, but allow no one 10 come on board. I
ibeu went to the cabin and cot in bed aain.
but presently the watch came down and fold
boats, fi!ied with
cnain ca-
niimosH of sivimm.

lthen went into the after cabin, and throw

.... Uy u yawi uoax, with men in it,
armed with boarding pikes, &c. They ap
peared to have just thrown the painter on
board the steamboat, and made it fast, and
their boat was swimming round with the cur
rent. I saw there was no chance of escape
then, and returned to the after cabin, and had
got one of the windows nearly out, when 1
discovcted two yawl boats made fast to the
stern of the steamboat, with a man in each.

strike the wharf again. Secim
lnfT at
me there were four or live
anted men ; and before I could get rny
clothes on heard people ou the deck, making
(i great noise, and p.lso heard the report of
several guns or pistols on deck. 1 heard a
good deal of hallooing, but could not distin
guish. what was said. I concluded that the
people who had come on board wanted to get
possession of the boat; and knowing I could
not resist them, I dressed myself fully secu
red my papers, and made foi the companion
nay. Before I got to the stairs which would
lake me on deck, I heard orders given to
"give no quarter," to ''kill the damued Yan
kees," or words to that effect. I then became
alarmed, and asked Capt. Appleby who was
with me, what we should do? He replied we
must do the best we could.
Capt. Appleby was in advance of-me, and
had'just put his foot on deck; he was seized
by the collar by some person, who told him
not to go out there, or he would kill him. As
he stepped back, there appeared to be two
parties of men- one coming from the bow of
ihe boat, and the other from the stem. They
met by the cabiu door, which they closed, and
I heard swords clashing and guns firing.
Capt. Appleby and myself then returned into
the cabin, and turned round the machinery
toward the forward part of the boat, to make
my escape from the forward hatchway by a
blank commuuicating with the deck. While
I stood near the hatch, watching my chance
to get out, a man put his hand upon the hatch
way and sprang down into the lire room with
out touching the plank. He immediately
cought hold of the poker, and commenced
working at the fire, as I supposed for the pur
pose of getting up steam and taking the boat
off. I stood there, not daring to make a
noise, till he got busily engaged, when I
crawled back into the cabin, without his hear-in"-
me, to escape through the cabin door.
When I put my head out of the c abin door,
my hat brushed the calf of a leg of a man who
was standing there, and, thinking he felt it, I
nra n fr below airain. The cabin door at the
top of the staijs was open at the time.
.,oTii xvmt forward, and in doing so
some one, ran against me; I supposed him
to be one of the attacking party.
We spoke, and each passechon. hen I
got to the fire-room, and was watching my
chance to escape, the man who first entered
it still sat there. He soon arose, seized by
the collar seme one ho had secreted him
self there, handed him out to the light, and
in rou"h language asked him who he was,

was Amos Dm fee whom he had seized.
Dm fee replied that he belonged to the boat.
I did not then know his name was Durlee,
but only knew him as a stage driver. Ihe
othf-r then used very opprobrious language to
him. and keening hold of him ordered him to
follow him on deck, or he would blow hi
brains out. They both went upon deck.
My intention was at first to go up and sur
render, but from the treatment I saw D'urfei
rpppivn. I concluded I had better not do so.
J observed that the port hole on the starboard
side of the boat, used for throwing fire out,
was open. It was 8 or 10 inches square,

the cabin door, but from the no.s at
the stem of the boat, concluded it was not
sale to venture out. Hearing the word given
to cast off, to fire, and an inquiry for rockets,
I stepped on deck, and saw three men stand
ing close by, armed. I concluded to serreu
der to them, and stepped up to the first one
for that purpose. I was thinking what to say,
when, seeing they did not susncc me. I n.ts-
sed by them toward the bow of the boat, til! I
got opposite the gang-way, and placed rav
hand upon the railing to let myself upon the
dock, when one of the three men came up
and seized me, saving "Halloo, do you be
long to the boat?" I answered no, I do not
I belong ashore. Their attention was at
that moment directed by a pistol that was fired
behind them, and I slipped oiTupon the dock,
gol jn a position behind the wheel house in
which they could not see me, and so effected
my escape from the wharf. When I got to
the lower track of the rail road I saw a man
lying about four feet from the edge of the
wharf with his head to the boat.
The witness here gave the court and Jury
a description of the dock, warehouse, rail
road track, Sec Seeing the man lying there
I passed ou to me other track, and got to the
other end of the dock, when I saw two men
standing there, whom I supposed to be a
guard, and concluded I had not got out of
troubl. vet. I concluded to hide, and while
looking for a place to do so, the people on
tho boat rushed off. cast her off, and I then saw
she was on fire. I concluded then to try my
luck with the two men whom I supposed to
be guards, and going up to them, found them
to be men belonging to my boat. It was
then nearly light as day, from the fire of the
boat- I nsked them where was King, anoth
er of the hands, but they said they knew noth
ing ot what had become of him, or any other
of the
to he King,

strangers to me, had just arrived in the city.
Among these was a gentleman who became
seated directly opposite to me at the table, and
soon attracted my observation by his peculiar
and remarkable appearance, and especially by
his singularly restless and subtly quivering
eye, which to me threw off an expression ex
tremely sinister, for I had ever noted than an
eye of this character indicated mortal obliqui
ty of the heart, and this kiud of eye he pos
sessed in a more eminent degree than any I
had ever seen. So strong, indeed, were my
impressions in the case, that I felt no hesita
tion in making up for myself a decided opin
ion of the true character of the man before
me, as before mentioned, then unknown to
me even by name.
After retiring to the private room of the
friend at whose invitation I had dined there,
he asked me, with au air of curiosity, if I no
ticed the gentleman who sat opposite to me
at the table we had just left, and, if so, what
was my opinion of him?
I replied, that I had not only noticed the
man, but formed a decided opinion of him;
and that was, that his true character might be
expressed in three words coldness, cunning
and perfidy.
"Why, sir," said my friend, in suprise,
"you cannot know the man of whom you are
speaking : it is Mr 13urr, the greatest lawyer
in JV. York."
" I will not alter my opiuion for all that,"
I remarked. 'I have never known such an
eye as his in an honest man's head ; and
whatever may be hiss present eminence, and
fair reputation, I will venture the prediction,
that he will yet he known as a villain."
In after times, continued Mr J. to me, I
had frequent reason to recall my first impres
sions of the true character of Jlaron JJurr.

This interesting and remarkable anec

the dock.
1 spoke to him, and he answered. He
was very badly wounded. The next morning
I saw Durfec lying on his face, dead, in the
spot where I saw the man lying the night be
fore. His head was shattered. He appeared
to have a ball fired through his head from ear
to front, coming out at his forehead. He
appeared fo have hied a good deal. I saw
the sealette cap he wore on that night. There
were two holes in it on opposite sides,
and appeared to be singed on the back side.
It must have l)cn i.diuonn 12 and 1 -
clock when the asrailants boarded the steam
boat. Witness thinks the number of assailants
between 40 and 50. They came in 5 yawl
boats, each of which would carry 8 or 10
comfortably. The men on watch on the
steamboat were not armed, nor was any per
son who was on board. The crew consis
ted of ten, arid there were 23 sleeping on
board. They had arrived too late for the ears,
and the public house being overflowing, he
provided them with lodgings to accommodate
them. I had intended to run to Black Hock
Bend that night, and had invited a few friends
to go with me ; and they were also on board.
Schlosser is about two miles above Niagaia
Falls, in the county of Niagara. Of all
on board, six or seven were missing in

On examining King, he was found to he
very severely wounded on the right shoulder,
and his left arm, and his clothes were full of
blood, and cut in many places where the flesh
was not reached. Several others were slight
ly wounded. John Leonard received a blow
on the forehead with a blunt weapon. Capt.
Harding had a severe cut through his cap, in
to his head, bearing the skull.
My object in running my boat from Buf
falo and intermediate p. ace's on both shores,
was to make money, carrying passengers and
freight touching at Grand Island, Tqnawan
da, Navv Island, and stopping at Schlosser.
On the day before she was destroyed, she
had made two such trips, but little besides
was carried on that day. But little freight
was offered to Navy Island, and none from

the republicans of the '93 school, on Monday
evening last, to approve of the two veto mes
sages of President Tyler. The utmost har

The annunciation of one of the speakers,
which he declared came from the highest au

he had nothing to expect from the federal
whigs arid should only look for support from
his old republican friends, was received with
the most rapturous tokens of applause.

Fatal Accident on Board the U. S.
Steam Frigate Fulton. We learn from
the N. York Commercial of Wednesday even
ing, that on 1 uesday afternoon, a sixty-four
pound gun burst on board the Fulton, off the
Hook, killing two men instantly, and badly
wounding six. The killed are Samuel Snow
man, seaman, and Joseph Philbrook, ordinary
seaman. Wounded, Itussel Smith, carpen
ter's mate; Joshua Wyman, quarter gunner ;
Levi Iawson, seaman ; Thos. Smith, ordi
nary seaman ; Richard Bell, do.; and John
Cooper, seaman, and all very badly, some of
whom will probably not recover. The fore
part of the Fulton is a complete wreck, from
the effects of the explosion. One piece of
the gun fell 40 feet from the carriage knock
ing in both starboard steam chimnies in its
passage off.
SurrosED news of the President. A
letter is published in an English paper, the
Vindicator, said to be from a trustworthy and
intelligent correspondent, named Yincenzo
Guervini, who states that ou the 29th of Aug.,
ou his way from Brazil, his brother discover
ed in the vicinity of the Azores what appear
ed to be a boat exposed. The Captain order
ed the ship to lie to ; and on approaching
nearer, he found it was the side of an im
mense vessel having the beams erect resembl
ing masts ; the other side was away. All
hands concurred in the opinion that it was
the wreck of a steamship.
Trial of M'LiEOD. The trial at Utica is
beginning to be exceedingly interesting, and
the witnesses who are now brought forward
identify McLeod, and connect him with the
infamous transactions of the night the Caro
line was destroyed. The Utica correspon
dence of the JVew York Sun says, the wit
nesses by whom these facts were proven,
were men of more than usually intelligent ap
pearance, and delivered their testimony with
great readiness, firmness, and apparent confi
dence in the undoubted truth of what they ut
tered. Thev stood the searching cross-ex-animation
of Mr Spencer, without shaking
under it, either in tone or readiness, of ex
pression ; on exhibiting anv indication of
wavering in their confidence of their own
truths. Their testimony made a very marked
impression upon the jury and the audience,
and during its rendition the prisoner was
much agitated, aud his before placid counte
nance exhibited indications of uneasiness
and fear. During the cross examination of
he consulted much with Mr
tho witnesses
Spencer, suggesting questions, and anxious
ly watching the replies of the witnesses, and
the effect of them upon the jury, as far as it
could be gathered from their countenances.
The facts elicited were scattered industrious

low citizens after the adjournment of the
Court, and greatly increased the prevalent ex
citement in the city.

and yesterday forenoon, by permission of the

board the Columbus to witness the operation
of the machine. Having encased himsclt in
his armor, Capt. Taylor was hoisted from the
deck over the side of the ship, by a tackle fix
ed to the main yard, and lowered. When he
first sank into the water; he ascertained ttiat,
owing to tho strength of the tide, he did not
carry weight enough, and, at an appointed
signal, communicated by accompanying lines,
he was drawn up, aud had additional weights
attached, and he then descended to the ship's
keel, lie was raised and lowered three times
so that he was enabled to examine the keel at
three different points. The last time, he
brought up a bunc h of grass, filled with min
ute insects which he scraped from the copper,
to which it had adhered. His lamp gave such
a brilliant light, when submerged, that he could
