At 11.05 Mr. Bay an} opened for the the defenseias fellows : Gentlemen of the Jury :—The case j for the prosecution, according to the ! statement of the Attorney General, has | been closed. It is iny duty, represent ing the prisoner whom yon have in ebarge, to open to yon the additional testimony of the unhappy event of the 25th of July- It is upon the whole of the facts that we confidently rely for acquital. ' Truth is universal and wise hood exceptienal We shall prove that it is not trne that Taylor did take this man, Jfackey. and throw him into this creek. Mr. Bayard then addressed the Court at some length, asking for judg ment on the corpus delicti without evidence. Turning to the jury, Mr. Bayard continued : You have heard what I have said to the Court. This is not all The prisoner and J/ackey were both strangers to ns, accidentally being within the jurisdiction of the Court. Mr. Bayard then proceeded to sketch the career of Taylor, claiming the de fense would show that he was in the lightning-rod business previous to the Drawyer's Bridge occurrence, and that his employer came to Newark looking for him during the latter part of the month of July, and expecting to hear ef him; that the prisoner was sought by Mackey and not that he sought Mackey; that Mackey, and not he, proposed to drink ; that the ride was unpremeditated and at Mackey's invitation ; that Taylor had with him the clothes he has now on and ail speculations as to light clothes will fade away in the presence of the man here to day dressed as he was when he eight days. On Monday morning he entered upon his duties. Taylor went as far as Elk ton in my buggy : it was an hours'« drive; I left him in Eikton to get on ray wagon : I left Taylor at the cross roads corner, ray wagon standing there : this was on Tuesday : this was all in the same week : on Sunday I met him at the Brick Meeting House, four miles east of Rising Sun: next saw him in jail last Thursday or Friday: knew Taylor sligbtiy before I hired him : had met him 2) years prior. When I left Taylor at Eikton told him I was going to Rising Sun : told him to eo to Lewisville, and if he got a job t mm to go to *-ewis , * 1 ! to put it up, and then come to Rising Sun and stay aver Sunday. When I left on Saturday morning I expected to see him that night j got into the wagon. We Will prove they were friends with no unsettled accounts, no debts due, no quarrels, no enmities, in short we will prove the entire absence of all those materials from which a jury should draw conviction from circumstantial evidence. We shall show you that Taylor had rheumatism which afflicted him nt the time, and suffering from which he, went to Bucyrus. .The ab sence of other indicia of guilt—staying ia the neighborhoed, making appointments and keeping them—we will-show yon the visit to Ohio was premediated and produce letters from his consin lang before he made the visit; that he arrived there pursuant to ar rangement to get employment : he got there iu the same clothes ; he was arrested unlaw fully ; there was no right to touch him and he made no effort to escape. McBride told Taylor they were going to arrest him, but he deliberately went to the Sheriff and allowed himself to be arrested. I am instructed to say that though ex-Sheriff Armstrong was present with Hamill and the prisoner daring ail the time, he heard nathing of the conver sation ; we will show there was a crumbling of the wing walls and buttresses of that bridge ; that they have since been repaired and replastered and the cap stones newly cemented ; we will show you the natural fact that on July 28th last, there was high tide ia Philadelphia at 12.55 a. m , and at mid-day at 19 minutes past 1 o'clock ; we shall show ydi) there is between the mouth of Appoquin iftiink creek three hours' difference ; that the tide rises at twenty miles distance for each hour andin creeks twelve miles; that the month of Appoqninimink creek is 58 miles from Philadelphia : that it is 12 mile9 further to Drawyer's Creek , that it was high water there two hours earlier than in Philadelphia, namely, at 11.20 ; we will show the ebb4o be seven hours running ont ; that about the time Mackey wag alleged to have been thrown into the creek there was a weed bank under that wing wall, and still two hours left for the tide to ebb ; and then ask how this man's body, contrary to the natural way in which the tide would have borne it, is found carried above the bridge. testimony fob tbz defense.

A chap*** ***** 1 On Thursday of last week Mrs. O Ne.l wife of John O'Neil, one of the supervisors on the p w * B< r, r., living near Oak j n gt 0 n, met with an accident which resulted in her death the next morning. She left her home and started on an errand to Havre de Grace, but a short distance away, and was walking on the railroad track, when she came across a pile of old ties which had been get on fire by a spark from a passing locomo tive. She stopped to extinguish the flamee and in doiug so her clothing caught fire and before assistance could reach her she was so badly burned that she died early next morn ing .—Every Evening. A boy, named S. Crowding, employed at Springîr, Morley k Gauge's Sash Faetory, in Wilmington, met with a singular accident last Saturday. He was working near a steam augur, used for boring out hubs, when he caught by the machinery and all his clothing, a vest and two shirts, stripped from his back. With the exception of seme slight injuries on the shoulder the boy was un injured. A man, named Perry Boyer, was severely burned, on Tuesday, at the Lobdell Car Wheel works, by a mass of melted iron that accidentally fell upon him. Samuel Lloyd, second mate of the steamer, Major Reybold. was accidentally killed on board of his vessel at the dock, in Philadel phia, last Tuesday. A fifteen year old boy employed in tha Tasker Works, at New Castle, had his leg broken by a bar of iron, on Tuesday morn ing. Dr. G T. Maxwell reduced the fracture. Rain, Hall and Wind Monday was a stormy day. The wind was from the South in the morning but shifted to the West and blew "big guns" pretty much all day. Bain fell in torrents and was ac companied, at onetime in the morning, by a sharp dash of hail, many of the stones being of a pretty good size. was DIED. On Saturday, 21st inst. in Catonsville,Md., Oliver T. Clift, son of Dr. Clift, of Sassafras, Md., aged 16 years. On Friday, 27th insf. at his residence in Middletown, John O. Mead, formerly of Phil adelphia, in his 72d year. A Substitute for Quinine. For years, quinine was regarded as the only specific for malarious diseases, and immense quantifies of the drug were annually consum ed throughout our western cotftatry, more par ticularly along the river bQttoms and adjoin ing low lands With the fall months malaria, in all its va ried forms, stalks like an epidemic threugh the land, and whole districts are prostrated with chills and fever, the entire population shaking with ague. Heretofore, quinine was regularly resorted to ; but, while it' frequently failed to effect a cure; it invariably deranged r tbe stomach, producing nansea, vertigo and 'fugitive pains in the head to such an extent that months elapsed ere the system recovered from its effects. These objections to its use were so marked, that the introduction of Mishler's Herb Bitters was hailed as a triumph in medicine. Infinitely more certain in Its beneficial effects than quinine, it possessed none of the demerits of that drug. Instead of nauseating, it tones and invigorates the stomach, and while speedily expelling the noxious humors, increases. the appetite arid facilitates di'ges/ion thus rendering the s/s •tem stronger, and better fitted to resist the at tacks of disease. In fact, a judicious use of Mishler's Herb Bitters at this season of the year, will prevent the recurrence of this dis ease, even: in those who have never, passed an antumn without it. An experience of twenty years proves it to be ths greatest anti-periodic k nowD to medical science. There are,perhaps, no diseases so subject to climatic changes as affections of the Kidneys. Hundreds of our farmers, mechanics, and la boring men, strong and hardy in all other re spects, suffer continual inconvenience, and oc casionally excrncisiing pains in the back and across the loins ; experience a frequent desire to pass water, jiain during, its passage, and frequent stoppages in its flow. These are manifestations resulting from some strain or heavy lift (perhaps years ago), and aggr ted by every change in the weather. E slight cold flies direct to this one weak spot, and unless promptly attended to the disease becomes chronic, and the once strong man a miserable wreck. Mishler's Herb Bitters is the'only certain remedy for this class of dia It has a peculiar tendency to the kid neys, stimulates them to healthy action, and removing the cause, prevents the formation of brick-dust deposits, which, if permitted to continue, will by cohesion form gravsl stone, necessitating a painful operation for its remo val. Many of the ingredients entering into its composition, are universally recognized as specifics for all complaints of the urinary or gans. In Liver Complaint, Dyspepsia, all disorders of the Bowels, and affections of the Throat and Lungs, it is equally certain and efficacious ; whilej as a remedy for the com plaints peculiar to the female sex, it has no equal. Ladies, old and young, married and single, in every condition of life, will find this gbzat female remedy prompt, safe, cer tain and reliable. The pale, sallow complexion is replaced by a blooming, healthful counte nance, and its occasional use enables Nature to perform her functions rbgularsy and without inconvenience.
