NbwYpbk, Bept. 11,?After tho ro
cord of Siiturdny liatl hoAn rend, Mr.
Baker brought Lo tho attention of tlie
court, u mutter in relation to witnesses
for defence, which lie thought it would
bo better to uttend to this time. The
Judge Advocate had suggested to him
that it might be h subject of interest of
his authority, and therefore properly
belonging to the court. Some time be
fore the court commenced, the gentle
men who wore then udting as the pris
oner's counsel, requested that a num
ber of the witnesses for the defence
Hhould be sent for, and 011 their appli
cation, this was done, some of tliem
could not bo found, and others who
were found, had not yet reported. The
reason for this neglect the counsel for
the defence did not know. Since the
trial has been progressing, matters
were developed which showed the
necessity or other witnesses.
Tho Judge Advocate had shown eve
ry disposition to procure the attendance
of witnesses, so far as making out sub
pumas was concerned, and so far as.it
? was within the means of the defence to
give new names as had been required
by the J udge Advocate. Some si xty or
seventy were in New York. After sift
ing them thoy came to the conclusion
that only nine or ten of them would be
required, and now,thattlie.trlul was ap
proaching an end, he repeated, that the
witnesses ho had asked for were abso
lutely necessary for tho prisoner's de
fence. They would not put the govern
ment to any unnecessary expense. So
far as relates to New York, Iticlimond,
and in the neighl?orhood, tho witnesses
would be sent for at tho expense oI the
defense. Hut further south there being
greater ditllcultles, that the government
should grant the accommodations in
the manner requested ; he, Mr. Baker,
would be ready with tho list of witness
es to-morrow, in order that the messen
ger might leave at once.
.fudge Advocate Chipnian replied
that the court was award that from time
to time he had urged that the rule ho
complied with, namely?that a list of
witnesses l>e furnished; that had not
been dono, and this morning the eourt
was called upon to make the request of *
the counsel Unit another special mes
senger be sent South; he said four
weeks ago that we would be disi>atclied
to secure witnesses more for the defense
than for the prosecution; those for the
latter were mainly here at the time the
balUlf went to the Old Capitol Prison,
and after tho defendant had been fur
nished with a copy or tho charges and
specitications against him.
A list or witnesses was made out by
the prisoner, i?ud supervised by Messrs.
Hughes, Dever and Peck, at that time
his counsel, to which was attached this
endorsement by Captain Wirz: "The
above named witnesses are all I re
quire." All of these witnesses, except
ing four or live, were here. The ab
sentees were accounted for by the fact
that several were in Kurope, and the
others in Texas, lie had only to say
that if in the progress of this trial, it
was believed by-the counsel for the de
fence, that additional witnesses were
necessary. It was only fair to the Gov
ernniei^t'that the counsel should give a
list of the witnesses, and where they
could be found, and also what they ex
pect prove by them, lie asked that
there oe no delay, and no unnecessary
expense to the prosecution in this mat
ter. The Government was trying to do
what was fair. Witnesses in the South
could be procured by telegraphing to
the nearest military j>ost. On Saturday
he supptened forty witnesses for the de
fence, and placed postage stamps on the
envelopes for mailing, as fost as the
counsel had furnished him with the
names. He did not know what more
the Government could do.
Mr. Baker said it might be well to re
ply to the suggestion of the Judge Ad
vocate to call attention to the fact that
manv witnesses who had been subpie
naed for the prosecution liad been ex
ainanied on the part of the Government,
and sometimes witnesses complained
that improper language had been used
to them lo draw out of them something
Tor tho prosecution. 11 o hardly be
lieved the Judge Advocate would at
tempt to use the iiitluenco or the Gov
ernment to rrighten or press out or our
witnesses an vtliing for the prosecution,
and he would not charge it that the
witnesses came horo under peculiar
circumstances. Many of them feel it
necessary to say and do all they win
to leave a favorable impression with
the Government ollicers to show their
friendship or good-reeling for tho Gov
ernment. . ,
Mr. linker, in continuation, remarked
that the al>seiiee or the witnesses re
ferral to necessitated the presence or ,
others to lill their places. With regard
to the suggestion of the Judge Avocate ,
that he should make niliduvit of what la
proposed to prove by eaeh witness, he
could not do so fpr want of time. The ]
Court would have to adjourn for a week ?
to enable hitu to do so.
The Court,- after deliberating with ,
closed doors, announced its decision ]
relative to the witnesses, viz: that the ,
defendant should present to the Court ;
an atUduvit to the names of the several
witnesses, their places of residence, and ,
reasonable grounds that they enn be ,
round, and, secondly, to tho facts he .
expects and believes he can prove by
each or them. From this tho Court
mav determine the materiality or tlie
evidence and order the wit nesses accor
Bakej said the Court understood I
from his remarks, tlml Willi all tlie time
the counsel could give to this subject,
they could libtwith their other duties,
draw up separate allldnvits. He was
willing, however, to do any thing in
his power to give the prisoner a fair de
fence and must from necessity, after ,
tlie prosecution dosed, ask tor a Tew;
dava ill order to attend to what the
court required, oven ir he had to work
day and night, so that tho'subjKnnas
might be scut as soon as possible.
The court saitl that it would 1k> better
to grant the time now than after while,
when the prosecution is closed; that it
involved time to make allldavits and
to send a messenger to Georgia.
Mr. 1 taker replied, that tliev had no
witnesses beyond New Orleans'.
The court said they were disposed to
grant the time, but the question was,
whether they should do so now or af
ter while. .
Mr. linker suggested that, if they
watted until after Um- persecution had
ended, many things wmild have be<Ji
developed Tor which they could provide
in their summoning of witnesses.' ir
tho court adjourned now the counsel
would lose a great deal of time, but
after tho prosecution closed, the coun
sel must liave time to look over what
the Government witnesses hnd testified
to. If they had an opportunity they
could confine the witnesses for tho de
fence to particular points. ,
The court replied that an ailldiiyit as
to what tin* prisoner proposed to prove
must be appended to tlie name of each
witness, or prisoner could stato his be

eout-t, beiuj^ a lawyer, knew that law

Mr. Baker replied that it required

know how to shape tlioni.

was pretty well opened the first week.
