and merit, a number of them having never before
been published in the United States. They have,

COURT OF INQUIRY—Seventh Day.
Oh the assembling of the Court the records of j
yesterday’s proceedings were read and approved.
Passed Assistant Surgeon Leecock was direct
ed to be called; previous, however, to his being
-worn. Cbm'r. Mackenzie submitted the proposi
tion mentioned in our report of Tuesday’s pro
ceeding, to show that the mutiny on board the
Somers did trot occur through any acts ot cruelty
or oppression on his pmt, or want ol a propel te
gml for the comfort of his crew, or by any
weakness or incapacity in him as ( ommander.
lie felt the more anxious to establish these
facts, as statements had gone the rounds of t he
papers that he was cruel and inhumane m his
treatment of the crews of the independence, when
f»r»t Lieutenant—the Fairfield, when acting
( ommander, and the Dolphin, when Commander.
11c was prepared to prove the reverse ot all
these statements, and desired to have the oppor
tunity of so doing, as he had witnesses in atten
dance who were about to leave the city.
Com Stewart said the Court could not travel
out of the record to show any evidence of chat ac
tor or previous acts, but he must confine himself
to the more transaction- of the cruise of the Som
s Mr IIo*r"ian coincided in this opinion, and
at'the request ot' Coul 31- the proposition which
h- hud submitted, wa« inserted in record
Passed Assistant Surgeon, A u • lAl
sworn—1 was on board the Somers ^
\—istant Surgeon #on her last cruise. * 1
intimation 1 had of the contemplated mutiny "“5
on the evening of the 2«th ot .November. i\\d*
i called on deck at evening quarters, Com. Mac
kenzie then accused Mr. Spencer of .an intention
to seize ami take the vessi4 out of. possession oi
the ot!ieei*s. He also accused him ot having a
conversation with Mr. Wales on the subject.—
He acknowledged he bad held such a convcrsa
tion. but I believe he said in was in jest or joke. -
QbvCom. Steward—Was any reply made by
Commander Mackenzie.
\ I believe he sai l * Vou confess then, you had
such a conversation:’ Af
Witness—Ho confessed tnat he had. Mi.
Wale-uas called up. but l did not bear what
M. said to him. He was the n put in irons.
On the evening of the next day the main royal was
carried away.
D l>y ('em* Stevvai t—'W'ere you on deck and did
vou see it carried away :
\_\0 I was below and did not see it.—
JuM before dark the men were piped down.—
Arms were put in my hands, and l was ordered
to keep watch while"Croiftwell and Small were
, arrested and put in irons.
On t hs 29th, 1 think, "wne other prisoners were
put irons. On the 31>th, Commander Mackenzie,
addressed the letter to the council of otlicersof the
Somers. I was called on deck on the 1st Decem
ber to witness the execution.
0. by Commodore Stewart—Were \ov, at the
council ?
A_Yes sir. 1 formed one of them.
0_State the proceedings of the council.
\_A1J the evidence we could come at .was
laid before us. Several seamen were examined
The point discussed was whether the men could
be carried home, and we concluded that it w'quld
be eminently hazardous and almost impossible
for fear of a re-rue being made and the vessel
seized. 1 wtts called on deck to witness the exe
cution of the prisoner-, and heard Mr. Spencer
request to speak to .Mr. Wales just before his
execution, and l also heard him a-k seaman
Small to forgive him, buLd did not bear bis
re|*lv 1 merelv heard the words l have nu ntiois
ed. * 1 heard Cromwell say he was innocent. 1
think I have mentioned all i heard at tnat tmu .
About tw o or three davs before bis arrest, Mr.
Spencer was in the wardroom, and i 'omo lie is—
ki ll and mvselfvvcre there; l was at a table look
ing at the eouise of the vessel on sonvo ( harts ot
the const ot* Africa and the West Indies; Mr.
Spencer asked me. if 1 knew where the Isle ot
pines was: 1 t<M him it was somewhere on the
Coa-t of Cuba, and i believe 1 asked him at
the time if he knew anv hotly there, and remark
ed that l had heard it wa> a great piratical ren
dezvous. Mr. Spencer made no further obser
vation that I know of but continued some time j
looking attentively.over the chaitsof the West
Indies, and then spoke ot the homeward course ot
the Potomac from the Brazils.
I recollect asking Cromwell when he was
•oil the sick INt, off (’ape Normatulo, if he had
over been on the ( oa-t of Africa bclore; be said
he had, and 1 asked him what vessel he was in;
he salt he was in a slaver, and was taken by a
man ot war.
( in the morning ol the ~(>th ol November,
Small represented himself t«> me to go on the list,
complaining ot nausea and vomiting. 1 put him
oil the list and gave him some medicine. ( hi the
evening of the mimic day, Mr. Wales’s evidence
on Mr. Spencer " case « aim* to my know ledge,
implicating also Small. On tire next morning
again ho represented himselt to go on the list,
anil still complained of vomiting. From his ap
oenrance, tone of voice, and quivering: of his
hands when 1 felt his pulse, l perceived that he
was labouring under manifest tear and anxiety.
1 then made some inquirv of pi rsons on the berth
deck, as to whether he had been seen to vomit,
an bad noboby seen him do so, and believing that
he w as feigning siekifess, l refused to keep him on
the list a;iv longer and discharged him. 1 be
disorder he complaine I of would u<it have produc
e l -itch appearance- a- 1 noticed in him; bis tone
and appearance betrayed more than sickness; l
doat k ow whether he took the medicine 1 gave
him the dav previous; 1 think lie was ironed tlie
next even ng; thi-couver-atiou took pla.ee oil the
morning ot the *2711» Nov.
\ftor he was in irons lie never requested any
: medical aid.
tp Relate any conversations you had with the
crew, or a * t - vou observed, tending to shew a
m;h« ’i millin' •
\. | never hud any conversations with the crew
before or alter She arrests
<T. What circum-tances induced you to unite
in the opinion that the satety ot the*Somers re
quired the execution of the prisoners.
A* i here were a great many prisoners on the
quai ter deck in irons and l considered it almost;
impu»sh!c to keep them there, we did not know
1 how'taanv more were leagued w ith them at the
lime, and 1 had seen the prisoners trying to inter
change signs with each other. Also, lrom the
wimes-es who were examined beiore the coun
i ii. The old seamen considered it highly dun
gc rous.
Q. 1 s that all ?
A. I thought the crow were also dilatory and i
surly in the performance of their duties, during
the time the whole ot the prisoners were in irons.
This l think disappeared entirely at the exeution.
Cross examined by Com. Mackenzie—Q,. Wa
ttle Commander attentive to the comfort of thb ••
sick, and did he send to you to o-k leave to fur- .
nidi the sick with food from the cabin table ?
A Lie was uniformly kind to the sick, and 1
recollect his sending them food from the cabin
table.
Q. l)»d the Commander order you in going inh*
everv port to provide fruit tor the sick, and tor
the health of the crew generally?
A. lie did. Hodireeled me to make requisi
tions h r fruits and such other articles as woul i
minister to the comforts of the sick.
Q. Was any of the fruit thus purchased fur
nished to the Commander or oificers.
Ar No sir.
