Prom the New York World, Mb, THE POLLARD CASE. THE EXAMINATION AT THE BROOKLYN POLICE COURT CONTINUED-EXTRAOR DINARY 9CENES. The case of Mrs. Madelaine E. A. Pol lard against Mrs. and Miss Crotty for as sault was appointed to be heard before Jus tice^ Cornwall, in the Brooklyn City Hall1 Police Court, ait 11 o'clock yesterday morn ing. Previous to that hour Mr. Pollard ap peared in the court and asked the magis trate to receive a complaint which he had to make against his wife. He said he had been about to do so on the previous day, when he was arrested for an assauliupon-hiB wife, alleged to have been committed some weeks ago. The Justice received Mr. Pol lard's complaint, to the effect that his wife had threatened, on the 15th June, or there about, to shoot or kill him ; and he asked that she should be put under bonds to keep | the peace. At 11 o'clock the cose against Mrs. and Miss Crotty was taken up. Judge Dunne appeared fbr the defendants. Mrs. Pollard was without counsel. Mrs. Pollard waB di rected to take the stand. The oath was then administered to her, and as she kissed the book she said, melo dramatically, " So help me, Almighty God and may the curse of God rest upon me if | what 1 am about to say is not the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth." She then gave the following evidence: My present residence is 247 East Thirteenth street. I saw the defendants for the first time in my life at their residence on tho day of the assault (June 16th) between 12 ana 2 o'clock. The Justice : Well, what occurred ? Mrs. Pollard : Shall I tell it in my own way ? If you would allow me to go back into n*y past life? The Justice informed ber she must con-' fine herself to the chaise. Mrs. Pollard (resuming): I met my hus band by accident that day at his publish ing house, and asked him where he was stopping. He said, "I will not tell you." 1 said that was a queer answer if it was a respectable place. He still refused to tell me. I said I will follow you and find out. I went there with my husband, and we went up stairs into a small hall bed-room, and from the appearance of that room 1 would not imagine thatadecentperson would live in it. I wob quite Bure that that was not where my husband slept; I knocked at the door of the adjoining room, and saw n lady and gentlemen there ; I inquired for the lady of the house, and was told she was in tho parlor; I went down to the par lor with my husband; sitting by the piano was a lady, not, I think, one of those pre sent (the defendants); I asked for the lady of the house, and this lady (Miss Crotty) was sent in ; I said to her, " Madam, will you please tell me bow long my husband has been boarding in this house?" She threw herself into a chair, and said, " You d? b?f ask me in a polite manner and 1 will tell you." I said it was very strange that a wife must ask a woman in a respect ful manner who had kept her husband three weeks concealed from her. She re plied, " This is a respectable house"; and I answered, " Madam, your manner evi dently denotes it." She said, " Get out of] this house ; get out of this as quick as you can; what do you mean t'* My husband, who was walking up and down the floor in an excited manner, then put his hand on the lady's shoulder, and said to her, "Go and get a police .officer, I am tired of this trouble I said to my husband, " Come, let us go;" and he started-put ahead of me; as I was about going out of the door this lady (Miss Crotty) raised her foot and kicked me in the side, and attempted with that Vo shut the door in my face ; my hus band was then standing on the stoop; I pushed back the door; she jerked me back, and I fell upon the floor in the hall; while in that position she beat me, kicked me, caught hold of my hair, and jerked my ear rings off, and pulled my hat off my head; I screamed to my husband to come to me, but he would not; my screams brought an other person, into the room, an old lady; 1 do not recognize whether this lady (Mrs. Crotty) is that person or not; I was told by my husband that the women were Mrs. and Mies Crotty ; they both took hold of me, and this lady (Miss Crotty) said," Get out of my house, you b "; I screamed murder at the top of my voice, and ran down the street; my husband, at my first outcry, had run down to the corner of the street; when he was shot by young Mr. Wise I threw my self between them to protect him; I ran down the street and overtook my husband, and insisted that he should come with me; he said, " I told you that was a bad woman before I took you there, and it serves you right for going to such a place." The Justice : Did you give any other pro vocation than what you have stated here ? ] Was there any undue excitement on your part, or did you use any violent expres sions that would justify this conduct ? Mrs. P.: No, sir, beyond the slur that I doubtless cast upon the lady's fair fame in saying that it was strange I should be asked to speak in a polite manner to a woman who had kept my husband three weeks; that provocation I believe an-y pure wife that loves her huBlmnd would give. The witness, being cross-examined by Mr. Dunne, recognized a parcel shown her as being hers. Being closely questioned as to, the circumstances of the assault, she ad hered in the main to her first statement. Being asked if she had any witnesses, she said she had not; that it was not necessary. She would like, she said, to employ a law yer if there was one in court. The Justice asked William C, DeWitt, who happened to be in court, to undertake Mrs. Pollard's case, and he retired with her for consultation, On tH?r return to court she was questioned about Mw? Crotty, pqp she could not swear to hor identity M ?*?%# -mw ___ :h the old lady who assaulted her. but to i beet of her knowledge and belief she s the same person. i!r. Pollard was then sworn for the de ice, and was asked to state what occurred the 16th of June. He said i I entered > house (Mrs. Crptty's) with my wife for ) purpose of letting her mako an inquisi ial Visit?to let her see where I lodged i slept, I took her to my lodging-room, 1 said: " You see in w&at circumstances poverty! live." '} \ She shut ine up in the-room by placing r back against the door; I said, "For God's :e let me out"; she.said in a very excited ie," You Bhall not go out till I have seen t lady oi the house " ; I offered to go down 1 bring Ler up, but said, ? for God's sake, my sake, for your own sake, be decent addressing her"; I made the condition A she ohould do so, and before I would isent to go down for-her; my wife went 6 the adjoining room, occupied by one of boarders, and asked for the lady ef the ise; she was directed downstairs; she at dowrr preceded in? into the parlor ^ Bitting there; l~ introduced my wife, and Miss Crotty bowed; my wife asked, very abruptly, if she was the lady of the house; she said no, but offered, to call her,,and went down stairs; Miss Orotty, the defend ant, appeared in the parlor; I introduced my wire, and said, with embarrassment, that my wife had not been with me for some time, and was disposed to ask some ques tions, and I asked Miss Crotty, for my sake, to respond to them freely and folly; Miss Crotty bowed assent; my wife asked her how long I had been in the house. Mr. Dunne : In what tone of voice f Mr. Pollard: I must say that my wife' manner was very overbearing and insolent, a ? ' it ? l 1 n. a - V ? 1 her eyes flaring ami her fattTcoloring, and she evidently playing the part of an inquisi Mrs. Pollard here exclaimed: " Mr. Pol lard ! Oh, shame, where is thy blush? My own husband!" and then burst into tears. Mr. Pollard remarked that he was " used to that." ? i Examination resumed : Miss Crotty said, j " About three weeks; has not your husband informed you T" My wife asked, " When did he arrive ?" Miss Crotty seemed to be consulting her memory, and I interposed to remind her that it was on a Monday. My wife broke out with, " What women ore in this house ? you have been keeping my husband concealed here among a parcel of prostitutes." Miss Crotty replied, excitedly,] " When you asked me questions in aTespect fat manner I replied to you as to a lady, but how leave this house," and stamped her foot with emphasis. My wife at the time was standing at the piano, and Miss Crotty opposite her, having risen from her chair. I feared a scexle, and touching Miss Crotty on the arm, - said : "1 want no scene or scandal here; you had better send for a police man."' I did not want to have my wife arrested, but thought Ehe presence of a po liceman might awe her. Miss Crotty made no reply. I moved towards the door to make my egress. As 1 left, they were con fronting one another in a defiant attitude, my wife retreating towards the door and Mies Crotty advancing, and both uttering exclamations. I opened the door and went out. As I did so and was going down the steps I noticed over my shoulder my wife and Miss Crotty both in the doorway, the. former trying to get in and the other to push her book. 1 saw no blow struck before or at tbat time ; I ran away from the bouse, and down the street; my wife ran after, and in about a square and a balf she came up with me, I having stopped; she was screaming murder, and a crowd was col lecting, whov I thought, would mistake me for a murderer if I continued to run. My wifesaidthat" these prostitutes," or ? your prostitutes, have beaten me; comeback ; this she said in a very violent manner, and kept repeating in a loud voice, holding me by the lap of my coat. "Mr. Dunne : In what condition was your wife as to, dress? ?;.? Mr. Pollard: Her head-dress was torn off, and a portion of her hair and her dress was torn. ? _, , Mrs. Pollard (defiantly): les, I had on false curls; I have them on now. You can look at them. , , , Mr. Pollard (resuming) : We went back to the house, I wishing to get away from the crowd. She attempted to go into the house again, but did not Bucceed. She kept shout ing and haranguing the crowd all the time. The "hair was found in her hat on the stoop. Cross-examined byDeWitt: The hair you speak of is an ordinary griselte f Mr. Pollard : Yes, Bir.

Pollard proceeded to Bay, in answer to questions: I was boarding and lodging at Mrs. Crotty's at eight dollars a week. 1 told Miss Crotty to send for a policeman, instead of my wife, because it was her house. I repeatedly requested her to come ft\lr.' De Witt: Did not your wife ask you to come away ? ^ Mr. Pollard: No, sir; most decidedly no. Mr. De Witt: Did not, in your judgment, Mrs. Pollard seek you on that day Irom a desire to return to your society ? Mr. Pollard : No; she said she had come to have me put in jail. She wanted to see, she said, what the character of the house was, accusing me of being in a den of pro titution. I do not know any object for her coming but revenge. Mrs. Pollard said it was love. _ Mr. De Witt: Was the expression d USMr. Pollard: Most decidedly and most U^Rexamined by Mr. Dunne--Mr. Pol lard said : I protested to my wife that the house was perfectly respectable, though an humble place. This I assured her again and again, and.at last carried her to see it. I approached the place three times before I entered, and then only entered on condi tion that she would conduct herself quietly, and not insult and mortify them and me I boarded there about three weeks.

To ihe Editor of the Herald: The Herald of to-day's issue contains a I letter signed " E. A. Pollard," my hus ' band, in which he asserts that he has spent i $15,000 on me in two years, and other silly fabrications. I beg the public will sus pend their judgment in this case until a fuller investigation can be had. I pronounce his statements in said letter to be utterly false in every respect, and I have no donbt the public will be so con vinced in due time. By inserting this you will greatly oblige yours, very respectfully, Madelaixe E. A. Pollard. The Kicfiing* Opera Salt for Service*. BEFORE JUDGE CURTI9 AND A JURY. Laura WcUdron vs. Caroline Riddngs. The plaintiff, who is a young lady well known to the theatrical and musical world, in the fall of 1867 entered into an engage ment with the defendant to become a mem ber of her troupe, if on a trial ? delpbia she satisfied the public and the pTess. Accordingly, on the 29th of Novem ber last, Miss Waldron made her first ap pearance in the Richings Opera Troupe in the character of Arline, in the opera ot the " Bohemian Girl." She claims that her d?but was a " success " with the public and with the press; and that immediately after the performance Miss Richings met her and congratulated her upon her triumphant ap pearance and progress; that on the fol lowing morning Miss Rithings wrote her a letter, saying: " I hope you arc rested from your last night's fatigue. Allow me to congratulate you on your dibiit." * * * ? You will repeat Arline in Boston next Tuesday evening. Your next role will be Zerlina, in Fra Diav olo, the second week of our Boston engage ment." That she was also congratulated on her success by Mr.Peter Richings. Mr. Campbell and other members of the com pany frequently encored, and at the close of the performance was called before the curtain amid the loudest plaudits the au dience could have given. _ Extracts were read from the Philadelphia Age, Fress, Chronicle, and other papers of the day, to show that she had succeeded, in the opinion of the critics. Mr. Andrew Waldron, the father of the young lady, testified to the foregoing; and further, that the defendant paid fifty dollars on account of the contract, and ordered his daughter to proceed to New York, and from thence to I>?6ton; that on their arrival in Boston Misa Waldron again appeared in the same character or rdle on the 4th of December following, with unmeasured success with the public and the press ; that thenceforth she never appeared in the company, and after remaining in Boston until the 2oth ?f December she, under the direction of Mibb Richings, came to New \ ork?Miss Rich ings agreeing to pay her e, penses; on arriving here Miss Waldron de manded payment of $100 of Mr. Pennoyer, the agent of the defendant, for the two weeks' salary then due; this Mr. Pennoyer refused to pay ; consequently the plaintiti brought this Buit. . On the part of the defence it was claimed that the plaintiff was wholly incompetent to sustain the rdles assigned her, and was therefore discharged from the company. Miss Richings testified that she engaged Miss Waldron, us alleged; that on the occa sion of her first appearance in Philadelphia she failed to such an extent that she (the plaintiff) demanded a new trial, and that the same was accorded to her, to take place in Boston; in this, too, Bhe failed, and thus it was that she was discharged from the tT Upon cross-examination by Mr. Furlong, Miss Richings admitted that at the close of the Philadelphia performance she warmly congratulated the young dtbutant, hut tried | to explain away the fact by saying that it was done in the spirit of chanty t<>war(J a young beginner; that she wrote the letter referred to in the Bame spirit; and tried by every means to aid her ; that the payment of salary was for expenses and as a gratui ty ? that Miss Waldron was very well re ceived by the Boston audience generally ; and that whatever dissatisfaction there was exhibited was explained away to some ex tent by the regrets of those present, that Miee Rickinge and not Misa AVnldron was cast in the rdle of Arline? Mr. Furlong: How loud was the applause. Witness: Not as loud as I receive in ^Question: Was it as loud as you received at the commencement of your rouBical ca reer ? Answer: Not quite. I should say Q?Mr. A. S. Pennoyer testified to the en ragement having been negotiated by him ind closed by Miss Richings; that he was present at the appearance in B?Bto"j helped to applaud the plaintiff, and directed others to do the same; it is one of the " tricks " of our profession to manufacture applause for a dtbutant,*nd I helped to do so on this occasion; the plaintiff received applause from other persons than those i instructed so to do; in fact, one or two per sons may start and govern the applause of (Twhole house; theft were 1,000 person* present | I told twelve of them to applaud whenever I did; I have been connected with the defendant's troupe two years.

LOCAL MATTERS: IIeavy Swindling Operations?False Pretences and Forgery.?On Friday last j two well dressed men entered the jewelry establishment of John H. Tyler & Co., on Main street, and, after looking over the stock, one of them, who gave his name as William C. Terry, of Pittsylvania county, purchased a gold watch and chain, some silver spoons, &c., to the value of nearly $200, offering in payment his note at sixty j days, payable in Danville. The stranger referring to D. T. Williams, Mr. Tyler went over to Bee that gentleman, who told him that if it was William Crawford Terry, of | Pittsylvania, he was as good as any man in Virginia. The stranger said that was his name, and told correctly who he had mar-j ried. Mr. Tyler then let him have the j goods, and he went off with his friends. Later in the day his suspicions becoming , aroused, the jeweller carried the note to | Mr. D. T. Williams, who at once gave it as his opinion that the signature attached was not that of Mr. Terry. Officers Knox and Tyler were then put on the track of the supposed forgers, but nothing was heard of them that night. On Saturday morning the same fellows again made their appearance on Main street, and this time succeeded in obtaining | under false pretences a double-barrelled gun and a pair of piBtols from Sutherland, the gunsmith. Thence they went to Suther land's livery stable, on Franklin str.eet, and hired a horse and buggy, giving an order on Thomas D. Neal in payment. They were thus all ready to start for the country with their 6poils, and without paying their | boarding-house bill, when a gentleman, who had heard "Terry" described,recognized him, and calling policeman Jacob W. Rex, had him arrested, and shortly afterward his accomplice. The latter gave his name as John Williams, and the other stuck to the name of Terry, until after he had been confronted by several old residents of Pitt sylvania and denounced by each as an im-1 postor, when he gave the name of John C. Shelton. They were both carried to the lower station, and thence to the city jail. While the prisoners were at the police station, an officer of the penitentiary iden tified them both as ex-convict s, pardoned out by Governor Peirpoint. Williams was there confined under the name of Jones, and worked as a shoemaker. Sheltoij. | worked as a blacksmith during his impris onment. Both are rathengood looking men, and were well dressed. They will have a hearing before the Mayor this morning, Richmond College Commencement.?A change of programme is announced in the order of commencement exercises at Rich mond College: Monday, June 29th.?Judge Ould will address the Literary Societies at the FirBt Baptist church.
