It , was even more entertaining than that ono to mostot tho audience, for it seems to be a delight to tho avorage human being to hear ill said of one. Nearly all tho afternoon was spent hearing the testimony of witnesses from Cameron, who were brought in to break the character for truth and veracity of J. E. Baker, who was on the stand for tho defenso last Tuesday. When Court adjournod in the evening, tho State had closed its evidence ih ' rebuttal and Colonel Arnott assured the Court that tho defenso would not occupy moro than an hour this morning. It is probable that tho arguments will begin afternoon to-day. David R. Brooks was placod opon the Btand when court opened.? He had no particular knowledge of the ease. He ha'd gone to Dr. Baird and asked him to let up in his persecution ' of Dr. Garrison, and ho had positively refused to do so.

V Mr. Sommorville didn't seom at all anxious that General Alfred Caldwell and Deputy Marshal Georgo RobinBon, the two witnesses, should testify and go to Charleston also, for he went on and talked as though he was just on the verge oi eternity and had all of that long, long day to spend talking. He finished his argument at 10:30, and the Judge overruled tho objection. Mr. Robinson was asked: "Did Dr. Garrison fnrnish any evidence and act in conduction with those inspectors who camefrpm Washington?" Colonel Arnett objected and mads a speech upholding it. . Mr. Robinson said that Dr. Garrison put tho investigation on foot by sending the letter to Washington, ana that it came back hero with two inspectors, and that ho furnished the hand-writing of SSj Dr. Baird and Dr. Campbell and Georgo Baird. "We investigated tho matter two weeks, and I was instructed to go to Dr. Garrison and tell him that tho postofQco authorities had made tho invest!- - ' < Sition. and had concluded that Dr. aird had nothing to do with the writing or inspirating of tho letter, and for him to keep quiet and he would get another letter and that would help the authorities to find out who did it." Mr. Bobinson said tho reason ho gave Dr. Garrison for . believing that Dr. Buird had not written tho letter wtu because it was in Dr. Balrd's language, and tliut some one clso had used bis language to make it appear that Dr. Baird had written it.
