The en gineer was named 8t. Preston, a resident of Cleveland.

The conflagration could be seen for a great distance, and showers of large sparks were carried several blocks by a strong northerly wind. By heroic efforts the round house, containing quite a number of engines, and which Was immediately next to the building shops, was saved.

CHABLIE ROSS. THE TRIAL OF WESTERVELT. WIFE OF THE PRISONER ON TnE STAND— SHE BREAKS DOWN AND SHEDS TEARS— AN AFFECTING SCENE. The attendance at the opening of Court on Saturday was as large as ever. The cross examination of the wife of Westervelt was continued. The questions regarding AVester velt's visit to Philadelphia is June were minute and searching, and close inquiries were made as to the dates of departure and return, the preparations for the trip, and Westervelt's actions, his comings aud go ings, after his return. The answers were not definite, and there were many points on whleh the witness' recollection was not clear. The answers to the questions in volved the relation of many particulars of household hardship and bitter poverty. The date of the 29th of June, the second day after her husband's return, was fixed upon witness' memory by a painful experience. The rent was coming due, and there was no money with which to pay it. A consulta tion was held between husband and wife, and as the result she took a small breastpin of his and pawned it. The money received was not sufficient, and a small watch was also taken and pawned, and thus money enough was raised to pay the rent. By the date of the tickets she fixed the date, and knew that the arrangement of these details kept her husband at home nearly all day. At this point of her testimony the forti tude of the witness broke down altogether and she wept quite bitterly. The little daughter, sitting by her father's side, cried in sympathy with her mother, and was sad and subdued during all the session, her face catching the shadow on her mother's at all times. The questions put by Mr. Ilagert followed the defendant up through every day's ex perience and acts until the 6th of July. It was testified that he passed a great portion of the time during the period at home. Sojne days he was home nearly all day, and when he went out, ostensibly at least, 'to seek work or to see about the police business. He was rarely out at all evenings, but on the evening of the 3d of July he went out about eight o'clock, and she did not know where he went, as he did not tell her, and she did not ask him. As to the pic-nlcs which he had been mentioned as attending she had the testimony of others as well as himself that he was there; besides, he brought home from there refreshments ob tained there, and the money received for his attendance. One of these pic-nics was held on the Fourth of July and another on the fifth, Sunday. The questions regarding the 6th of July, the day when Mrs. Peer testified to having seen Westervelt in a street car, with a little boy answering the description of Charlie Ross, were very minute and close. On that morning witness arose ahout 7 o'clock, leaving her husband in bed. She did not see him again until nearly noon, and she had every reason to believe that he remained in bed all that time, although she did not see him after she left him there. AT ABOUT NOON he came, dressed, out of the bedroom into the room where the wife did the cooking, and asked for his coffee. There was a door from the bedroom into the cooking-room, and one from tfie cooking-room into the hall. The bedroom was a dark room, lighted only by a hall window, above reach. The door between the two rooms was kept open all the time for the sake of ventilating the room. AVitness explained that when she said she did not sec her husband be tween 7 o'clock aud nearly noon, she meant that she did not see him up. She passed the bedroom door several times in the inter val, and Baw him was positive of. He* did not go out at all in the afternoon, but took a pillow and blanket and lay down in the hall. In the evening he went out. The next day he went out early, and did not come back until about 2 o'clock, when he said he had been out seeing about the police business. This was fixed on the wit ness' memory, she said, by the fact of its being the day after the 6th, her birthday. Mr. Hagert pressed for the connecting link of association between the two days in the mind of the witness. A similar association of memories enabled her to recollect what occurred on the 30th of June, because it was the day after the 29th, the day when she had to pawn tlie breastpin and the watch. The 11th of July was a date which witness remembered because she had to pawn some more articles on that day. She was able to say positively that AVilliam Mosher was not at their house on that day, and witness did not sec him at all until between the 11th and 14th of August. The visits of Mosher to the AVestervelt house were closely inquired about. Mrs. AVestervelt, to judge from her manner of speaking of Mosher, did not regard him cordially, and said she had bo idea why he came to their house, as he was never in vited there to her knowledge. On tlie occa sion of his first visit her husband was out. it ble on and not be In bed. This she at on Mosher Inquired for him, said he would call again Iu a day or two, and after a few sen tences exchanged, he went away. AVitness did not ask liim bis business. SHE TOLD HER HUSBAND, on his return of Mosher's visit, and he asked what he had said and what he wanted. Mosher's next visit was a day or two later. AVestervelt was home when Mo sher and Douglass came, but he was going out to see his lawyer, Col. Fcllowes. The two men waited until his return, and then staid to dinner. She knew that her hus band saw Col. Fcllowea, because he brought back a letter from him addressed to "AA'm. AVestervelt. tlie two men, and witness was uncertain as to time of liis return; she could not remem ber whether or not that was the night he went to Philadelphia, but was pretty cer tain it was the night. As to Mrs. Mosher's visit to the AVester velt house, tbe witness said she did not know that Mrs. Mosher and her children were coming there until they came. Her husband told her that Mrs. Mosher was coming to New York to live, but not that she was coming to their bouse, and she was sure that be did not know the fact himself. AVestervelt went out with ing. She herself mailed a letter that her hus band brought from Philadelphia, but she could not remember that he told her whose letter it was, why he brought it to New York to bb mailed, or what was the address on the epvelope, although she thought it probable that she read it, certainly having curiosity enough for that. The contents of the letter she was entirely ignorant of. At this time the composure of the witness gave s<ay, and for a time she wept violently, shaking with sobs so that she could not an swer any questions. Mr. Ford requested that, as it was after one o'clock, a recess might, now be taken, in order to give wit ness time to recover her composure and rest herself. Mr. Hagart, however, op posed this, as he desired tojnish the examination before the recess. After an interval Mrs. Westervelt became more com posed and was able to resume her evi dence. cross THE QUESTIONS lei a ted to the length of time that Mrs. Mosher lived with them and to the last time witness saw Mosher and Douglass, the Sat urday night before they were killed. She and her husband went to the house where they were, without expecting to see them, and late in the evening her husband put her and the Mosher children in a car to go hmoe but did not accompany them. He did not return home until the next morning, when he brought a fish with him. She could not remember that be told her where he bad bcifn all night, or that she asked him where he had been, or why lie did not come home. Slie was inclined to think that she did not say anything to him about the matter, because he was angry at having to bring the Mosher children home. She had hoped to get rid of them. That Jay, Sunday, or the night on which Mosher and Douglas were killed, AVestervelt was home all day until the afternoon, when he went witli her and the cbildreu to bis moth er's and staid until nine o'clock. Witness had never heard that, her hus band was suspected of any complicity in the abduction until he came to Philadelphia and was arrested. She did not know .t then until Superintendent Walling told her that her husband had been assistsng the po lice in the matter. Witness was next asked if elie knew where Mosher's foster-sister, Mrs. Knapp, resided. She responded that she did not, and then was asked if she knew Mrs, Man ning. At tills point Mr. Ford objected that this was not cross-examination. These names had not been used in direct examina tion at all. The court stated that more freedom was pcrmissable in the cross-exam ination of this witness than in the case of ordinary witnesses, as she was a witness partly through the consent of the Common wealth. Mr. Hagert explained that he wished to show that witness had transac tions with Mrs. Manning, and made state ments to her, and tlie objection was with drawn. After Mrs. AVestervelt answered that she did know Mrs. Manning, the cross-examina tion was resumed as follows : Q. Did you say to Mrs. Manning that Mosher had stolen the child to get money to build a floating palace, and that if Mo sher had lived until Wednesday after the 14th of December, 1874, that Charlie Ross would have been given up; that a paper had been drawn up for liis delivery at a ho tel in New York ? A. No, sir; 1 never said anything of the kind ; I never beard it to say It. Q. Did you say anything like that to her? Objected to, and question withdrawn. Q. Did you tell lier that Mosher break fasted with you and your husband the first Sunday morning after you moved into the Henry street house ? A. I told her something about that, but I don't know whether it was the first Sunday morning that we moved there or not. Q. Do I understand you to say that noth ing was said about the abduction of the child 1 Objected to, and objection sustained as to form. Q. You have said in reply to my question with reference to the conversation about the stealing of the child, and that Mosher stole him to get money to build a floating palace, that you bad said nothing of the kind ; do you say that nothing was said in that con versation about THE STEALING OF THE CHILD? considerably after two o'clock, he suggested a recess be taken. The court, however, favored continuing tlie session until the ex amination of the witness should be conclu It was as easy for her to sit in tlie witness chair as anywhere else in the court room. Mr. Ford stated that his examination could not be concluded by three o'clock, but was decided that he should go ou with it without a recess being taken. Tlie first important point of the re-direet examination was in relation to the 6th of July. AVitness was asked if It were possi for her husband to have left the bedroom that morning without her seeing him, she responded very decidedly that it was possible. He could not get out of the window, ior it was above bis reach, and if bad passed out through the door she cer tainly would have seen him go. The exam ination was then directed to the vlBlt of Westervelt to Philadelphia to assist Mrs. Mosher in moving to New York, after adjourned until this morn all Objected to, and the objection overruled. A. I did not know anything about it to say; tbe woman was drinking beer when I was there, and 1 suppose she said I said it, but I never said it. Question repeated. A. I never said to any anything about the stealing of tlie child because I didn't know it. Q. Do you remember Mrs. Manning say to you that if Mosher was as smart a man as represented, why he should steal the child? A. I never heard such a conversa tion. Q. AVas Mrs. Manning's daughter present this interview ? A. Another lady was present, but I don't think she was present; other one was Mrs. Torene; she lived in next room. This closed the cross-examination, and Go Ford stated that he desired to examine witness re-directly, but as she had been the stand some four hours, and it was "I a sirn an and is the tax, ease the the which the court B.

IX SEARCH OP A VEST. NEARLY IN TUE TOILS—HE WENT TO SIN NO MORE. "Oil! why should the spirit of mortal he proud," is a conundrum, which the ma jority of mankind calmly give up. Augus Green, a chocolate colored native, being verdant both by name and nature, thought spirit would be proud, if he could wear certain cinuamon-colored vest, which he noticed in a liaud-mc-down clothing store Market, street. Not having the where withal to purchase it, he tried to stuff it under his coat, while the attention of the of the ranche was directed to another customer. But, alas, the boss did see him, he was speedily collared. Down on his knees Augustus went, despite the dust on floor, and called on all the Sambo's to witness that if he was let off this time he would never try, to steal again. The proprietor was good-natured, and could not help laughing at, the ridiculous posture and exclamations of the would-be purloiner, and after sending the ubiquitous small boy after an Officer in one direction, told Augustus if he wanted to save his i he had better sail down tlie street in opposite one. He needed no 6e:ond warning, but faster than Time iu its flight, be glide down the street, while the crowd whistled, "See the conquering hero comes." - THE E1'WORTH CAMP.
