JUDGE 4F THE CRIMINAL COURT OF DAVIDSON COUNTY, BEFORE THE SENATE. TENTH Testimony for the Nlntft Continued Interesttiiffr Point Raised. Friday, May 17, 1807. The court met at nine o'clock, nineteen members being present. TESTIMONY OF MICHAEL J. HOC3TON. -The testimony of Michael J. Houston was resumed", as follows : When I came up about half mst aeren the watchman told me Mr. Martin waa taken out. I was told to keep the doors closed until the morning. Me and a man named Crawford, were placed lo watch the building. At about three o'clock in the morning a colored man told me there was n powe of men trying to get into the Capi tol. I went outside and asked Ihem what thev wanted. Thev eaiil thev w,ald the body of Oapt. Heydt and Mr. MarHn. I told them that they could not come in till six in the morning. They peemed excited. Shaw said to me,' I am the man that was here in the morning. I told him he could not come in except by forcing himself in. One of the men called out shoot the damned Yankee son of a bitch. I turned round to Crawford and said, you Crawford watch the door while I go "tip stairs to wake up Bramble. I woke up Bramble. As I came down I saw them breaking in through the United State3 Court room. I went into the Adjutant General's office. I went in to get my hat. The party arrested Capt. Heydt. Capt. Heydt said he wanted that man as a wit ness and to see that his effects were not dis turbed, and then they let in Crawford. They wanted me to open the door. I told them I would not, if that was done it must be by force. During the confusion we had to talk to them through the glass door, when I told them they could not get in till G o'clock in the morning. The Sheriff said he must hare the body of Mr. Martin. Crawford, I understand, is now on a farm near Fort Kiley. 1 was not at the trial of Capt. Heydt. That morning Capt. Heydt gave instruc tions to me and Crawford to go to Mr. Trimble's house. We got there quite early. Mr. Trimble wa not up. The servants waked up Mr. Trimble, and we told him all about what had been done. I was not at the trial of the Imbmt eerpwt. In my search for Brittle and Jones the cit izens showed more disposition to embar rass me than to help me in my search. In one house where I thought Britth, ' was, they told me he was not there. I left a man named Fitzgibbons lo watch that house. The next day I was told that Brit tle had been seen about that house. I did not, while acting under Capt. Ileydt's or ders, leave Nashville. I waa here all the lime. There was a good deal of excite ment among the people. One crowd I re member particularly. They were talking about the 5lh Cavalry and the ICth United States Infantry. They said there waa enough men in Nashville to clear them out. lucre were seven or eight people in that crowd. They talked about as loud as I do now. The crowd seemed all agreed that thev were all chi of the same block. TJin men who arretted Capt. Ifevdt were not known to rac, except Shaw and Garrett. I do not know whether anv of them had been Kcbcl soldiers. I know of no other fact that I can state that is of any consequence. TISTIMONY Or .1. M. DUNNAWAY. J. M. Hunnaway wa9 next examined for the prosecution by Mr. Trimble : 1 reside in lsculoru county. I am brother to the member from Bedford. I was not in Nashville in July, 18CC. I do not know anytinng anout tne immediate tacts ot Judge 1' razicr's case. I had no conversa tion with Oovornor Campbell about this case. 1 Know nomine about the means that were taken to prevent a quorum, only from hearsay, and I never heard any person directly speak about it. I have my own notions why my brother acted as he did, at the extra sessions. He came here and stayed two or three days. My under standing was that he resigned to break up the Legislature. That is, it was done to reduce the House below a quorum. 1 think it was that they wanted to keep the lloue Iroin mssing llie amendment. 1 am getting rusty about this thing ; it was a great while ago and I have forgotten nearly all almut it. I don't know under whose advice my brother was acting. I heard him say (Jov. Campbell was at a caucus, and advised them to break up the meeting. I do not remember who my brother sam were at the caucus besides (Joy. Campbell. I had that conversation with my brother directly after he had resigned. I heard him say that he received a letter from Mr. Cooper, and that Mr. Cooper eulogized him for his conduct, and that the President ap proved his course. Mr. Cooper was, I be lieve, private Secretary to the President. Mr. Trimble : IJul vonr brother tell you that thee were the sentiments of the Pres ident of the United States? Ans. I think my brother represented that this was the sentiment of the Presi dent. Mr. Ewing: May it please the court Mr. Dunnaway heard his brother sav that Mr. Cooper told him that the President said now if this is evidence I shall want to be irin mv nrimmer acain. We obiect to a statement of the witness about what his brother said. 1 sunnose Mr. Cooper is com Detent to testify for himself as to what he said. I submit that to the court. Mr. May said : I will simply observe that this is a part of the rot ivthi. We are attempting to show that there was a facti tious attempt to break up the Legislature and set aside the Mate Government. e want to show what this member, recusant recalcitrant, would have said. Mr. Kwing: It is not what Mr. Dunna wav said. He is chareed with a conspiracy to prevent a quorum nnd to break up the Legislature. Our obiection is not to wnat Mr. Dunnaway said but as to what Mr. Diuinawav said that Mr Cooper said. Mr. Maynard: What wc wish to show is how a member of the Legislature was acting, and that he was giving these roJv wins for it. Mr. Kwing: It is not attempted to be shown, nor can it be shown, that there ex ists any connection between the fact alleged and Judge Kratier. The inference from the evideuce is that the President and3Ir. Cooper were jNrficyr. rriminU with Mr. Dunnaway. The objection was submitted to the court, and it was decided that the question should lie answered, ayes 12. noos . . Mr. Maynard : The question is, did your brother toll yon that Mr. Cooper ex pressed these as the sentiments of the Presi dent of the United State? Witness . Yes. Tho direct examination w then re sumed : I don't remember anything further that will avail anything. Cross examined by Judge Gaut: My brother said his motive in resigning was to reduce the House below a quorum ; and I have heard him nay he could do no good for his party by staying here. I can not exactly state whether my brother told me that Governor Campbell told him he ought not to resign. 1 think he told rae one way or the other either that Governor Campbell told him he did wrong by re signing, or else that he told him he did right. I know that Campbell was here trying to get them to bolt or to do any thing to break hd the Legislature. When the eqttobble broke out he oould not bolt; he could (resign but not bolt, because ho. had promised his constituents he wonld not bolt again. Gov. Campbell may have come to my brother's room and told him he had done wrong, that he ought not to have resigned, but I cannot say positively. I told you that they had a meeting at his rooms. Gov. Campbell was mentioned. I do not remember that he mentioned any other member, but I was satisfied that there were others there. The meetings were held somewhere in the city. My brother might have told me who were at the meet ings, hut if he did I disremember it. I suppose then; were no Radical at it, but I don t know. My brother had resigned be fore he got the letter from Mr. Cooper or any one. else. The whole sum and sub stance of it is that there was a general un derstanding among them to do all they could lo break up the House. Well, I don't know, positively, but that is just my opinion, from what I could gather up. "By Mr. Trimble. The caucus I spoke of was made of Conservatives. I did not un derstand how often they met. TESTIMONY OF ABRAM SMITH. Abram Smith (colored). I live at Nash ville. In July, 1SCC, I was porter at the Capitol. I was present when a party of men came to take away Mr. Williams and Mr. Martin. I was not present when they arrested Capt. Heydt. The doora were locked when the Sheriff came up to get Mr. Williams and Mr. Martin out, and the watchman would not let them in, and they threatened to break in. It was about half j past six in the evening. Mr. Martin was asleep. They did not wake him up. I was down below when Capt. Heydt was arrested. The window and door Jhat lead into the Federal Court, and the door that leads into the hall were broken open. .Mr. bhaw and Air. Davidson were the only persons among the party that I knew. I did hear such talk in the lobby that there was an attempt to keep away a quorum. I think they were outsiders not members. I heard that sort of talk two or three times. People were in consultation with members but I did not know them. I was about town a cood deal. There were not many strangers belonging to the city present. I Know Air. Jones, ot Ureen, and Air. .Martin kept away to prevent a quorum. Mr. Jones afterwards came back. I do not think he came till after the amendment was passed. He then came in voluntarily. 1VAPE nnCKMAN 3 TESTIMONY. Wude Ileckman (colored): I live in Nanhville. I was at the capitol in July 18GG. I remember Mr. Williams being taken awav. I know very well that I was in the Senate chamber. It was in the evening. Tlie doors were closed ami I could not go out. The reason was, the Sheriff was there to arrest prisoners in the capitol. Mr. McElwee came in and then thev got in too. The next morninjj tbev came and took Capt. Heydt and Mr. Mar tin. They forced the hasp off the door. That was" between six and seveu o'clock. When thev took out Mr. Williams-tfic sun waa down." Mr. Martin was asleep. Mr. Martin looked to be in good health. They diil not wake him up. 1 tried to wake him up but I could not. There was a demijohn in the room, but T'doiVt know whether that put him to sleep or not. I do not know whether there was any etlort made to prevent a quorum. Sorao of the members told me that tlicy would not lie there. Mr. Willtama was one. and Mr. Jone, of Claiborne, told me he would not be there. They did not tell me whether any one waa operating with them. I do not know whether any caucusses were being held with that purpose. RUCK LEWIS TESTIMONY. Buck Lewis, (colored), being next ex amined by counsel for the prosecution, testified : f live in Davidson county. I was employed in the House of Representatives in July, 1800, as porter of the House; had been so employed from the beginning of the session. I was there regularly during the sessions of the Houses. I do not know whether there was any effort made to de feat the getting of a quorum. I know a gocd many members went away. I do not think any of tliem returned voluntarily. I did not hear any of them say the reason why they went away. 1 remember meeting Mr. Dunnaway in Church street, with a carpet-big going home. I told him they were hunting him up. He said he was going home. He did not say why he was going home. I was not much round at the mem bers' rooms. I do not know anything about caucuses being held in the city. I saw Mr. Watterson of the Banner one day, speaking with Mr. Williams in the Speakers' room, I saw Mr. Colyar, also, about the House, speaking to members. I think he is a law yer wlio used to live about Winchester. I think I heard he was practicing law in Nashville now. 1 heard him say that he thonghl they had done right ; they had been imposed on long enough. I do not know whether he had been a member of the Rebel Congress at Richmond. Mr. Watterson told them near about the same thing. A lot of men came to my house hunting Capt. Heydt. Mr. Alexander and Mr. hverett were the only men 1 knew among them. Mr. Alexander had been a quartermaster in the Confederate army. Mr. Everett, I think, had been a soldier m the Confederate army. I was present at court during the hearing of the habeas corpus case. There seemed to be a good deal of excitement. I was not at the court house at the time Judge Frazier left the bench, after this impeachment began. An intima tion was made to me that there would be no quorum. I was in Washington with Major Lewis last June. I saw Mr. Cooper, and told him I should have to go home as the Legislature was going to meet soon. He gave me money, forty dollars I tlu'nk to come home with. I called on the President at the White House. Heasked me why I wasgoing home so soon ? I told him that I had to go because the Governor had summoned the Legislature. He said the Governor had a damned sight of use for a Legislature! I saw Mr. Colyar in the Capitol. I never saw him before that time in the Capitol. He was with Mr. Williams and Mr. Mar tin. I remember seeing him acting as their lawyer. I do not know whether he was sent for by them, or whether he came by by his own will. Watterson was there at the same time that Colyar was. I hap pened to be in the presence of the Presi dent, because I always went to the Presi dent's house when I was at Washington. He was an old acquaintance of mine. He addressed himself to me. I was in a room with hi m alone when he'said.that. The President and Mr. Cooper were not to gether when the President said that to me. Mr. Cooper wxs in his own room. TESTIMONY OK E. II. ClOEN. E. H. Goen, examined by Mr. Maynard: I live in Davidson county. 1 was Clerk of the House of Representatives. I was pres ent and acting in that capacity in the ex tra session of 1SGG. There was a difficulty in obtaining a quorum of the House. There was an effort on the part of some members to prevent them from getting a quorum. They vacated their seats T sup pose for that caue. I do not remember hearine members express a purpose of pre venting a quemm. No persons unconnect ed with the House were, bo far as I know, in the conspiracy with those members. I know nothing of any caucus. Several members left their seats after they had been here. Some returned, but whether volun tarily I do not know. One or two peihaps returned voluntarily. Mr. Jones, of Green, I think did. Williams and Martin were arrested by Capt. Heydt's officials who were acting under his orders as Special Deputy sergeant-at-arms. They were kept in the Committee room. No unnecessary restraint was exercised over them. They were sup plied by a friend with articles convenient for sleeping. Thejr meals were sent to them. I know nothing of their being taken ont of the custody of the fergeant-nt-arms. I was present at court dnring the trial of the kebeat eoevM case. I heard Mr. Colvar speak while I was there. NASHVELLE, TENNESSEE, No, I am mistaken, it was not JMr. Colyar it was Judge Brien that I heard speak. That I believe was all I heard. A good many persons were present. There did not appear to be much excitement. It jeemed to be an uninteresting trial to the people. I waa not present when the final decision was made. Cross-examined by Mr. Ewing: It is common for the lobby to be occupied by persons when the Legislature is in session. It is common in ordinary time3 for persons to come in and talk with the members. They will often come in without invitation. I saw no extraordinary flocking when they saw this effort waa mado lo break up the Legislature. I do not think I ever saw Judge Frazier in the House. I saw his brother, I think, but I do not recollect to have seen the Judge in the House. Judge Frazier lived in the country, sizisrailea from here, I believe. To Mr. Maynard. The Judge comes to town pretty regularly. I do not know with whom he associated. I did not often see him. TESTIMONY OF CAPT. HEYDT. Capt. William Heydt examined by Mr. Maynard : I was in Nashville in July, I860. I was sergeanl-at-anna to the House of Representatives. I had a warrant placed in my hands for the purpose of arresting several members. I employed sixteen or eighteen assistants to arrest absent mem bers. I made application for military aesistance. T had a report from my assistant men. They had trouble to get Mr. Marable, they said. Some of the men used revolvers and pistols, for that reason I sent applica tion to Gen. Thomas for a squad of soldiers to bring the members here. I did not obtain the soldiers. General Thomas had instructions from Washington not to interfere with tho civil government of the State. I succeeded in arresting Williams and Martin, mentioned in the Speaker's warrants. When I had arrested them I took them to the committee room of the House of Representatives. I made every provision for theircomfort and care. The' had tobacco, cigars, whiskey, beer, their meals and everything. This was paid for first at my expense and afterwards at the expense of the State. I had them in cus tody four or five days. I received instruc tions from the Speaker to keep those men in the House. I informed the Speaker how I had succeeded in securing t at tendance of these men. A writ of habeas corpus was served on me. I do not know who got out the writ. I think I was first ordered to get Williams on the 10th or 12th of July. When the paper was made known to me I reported to Speaker Heiskell. There were counsel there on behalf of the State to as sist me. The Speaker instructed me to keep Williams and Martin in the House. There came a posse of police and the Sheriff. I counted twenty-five or twenty nine. In theevening they took Williams, and in the morningMartin and myself. They took me to the Commercial Hotel and placed me in a room on the second story where I was watched and guarded by two policemen. About seven o'clock they gave me breakfast. I was assessed ten dollars for cost by Judge Frazier. Judge Frazier took the bench as Judge of the Criminal Court and Judge Gaut was my counsel. Judge Frazier took me down to the Clerk's room and I paid them the money. I was then discharged. I forgot my pocket-book in the morning and left it in my room. I had to borrow money of a friend to pay the money. My purso contained forty or forty-five dollars. Nobody had been in my room but the po lice. 1 have never seen it since. Judge Gaut volunteered to defend me. I had a warrant to arrest the absent members. They were constantly changing Itoarding house!. 1 do not know whether any effort a. made to break up the House, except by the members that belonged to the House. I heard Mr. Williams and Mr. Martin sav that they never would vote for this amend ment. They did not say why they had gone home. When the policemen came to my room, I called for my watchman to come in too. The policemen would not let him come in. By Judge Gaut : I remember that there were but a very few persons in the Court room when you came to me and asked if I had any one to defend me, and that I said I had not, and should be obliged as I knew you and you knew me if you would defend me: Yon did it to oblige me. When 1 told how I had left my pocket-book behind, Judge Frazier offered to loan me the S10. Judge Frazier said I was not to blame, and did not fine me, but got the costs reduced for me below what they would have been. TESTIMONY OF M. B. HOWELL. Mr. M. B. Howell examined by Mr. Maynard : I am Clerk and Master of Chan cery Court for Davidson county. Mr. May nard handed papers to him to look at and state what they were. Witness answered : This paper handed me is an official docu ment from ray office. It is a bill of the Mayor and Aldermen of the city of Nash ville, filed in the Court of Chancery on the 1st August, 18GG. Mr. Ewing: We submit that this is not admissible as evidence in this case. It has no manner of relevancy to the matter at issue. Mr. Trimble: We offer this as evidence of the animus of this community. That bill virtually declares the Legislature of this State a bogus Legislature. It is a symp tom of the times ; it shows the darkness that was arisen on the land. In ordinary times, such a bill would not have been allowed to be filed. Judge Frazier was a member of the community, and like others felt the influence of that spirit that was pervading this community. He was proba bly insensible of it, but still it is to be ap prehended that he felt its influence. Mr. Ewing : I am still unable to see any connection that can be made between this record and the case before the court. The matters herein mooted are altogether foreicn to the matter now in issue. Ihey are simply res inter alios actae, having no pertinence tp the question we nave now under adjudication, and show no connexion whatever with Judge Frazier. It seems to me that we might take up any other record that has existed at any other time nrior to this matter, and adduce it in de termining the question which this court has to decide. I say, may it please the court, that Judtre Frazier is not to be held re sponsible, even if there were in the bill filed by the corporation of Nashville evidence of x . , .ii -i! . i .1. t ; disrespect anu lii-ieeung lowarus uie legis lature. The bill contains nothing more than was necessary to bring out the ques tion that was to be discussed before the court. For the first time we have the ob jection tlmt this was disrespectful to the Legislature. J be cnanceuor mat granted the injunction did not regard it as dis respectful. He was an officer appointed bv the nartv in power and surely would not have given his sanction to a document that was couched in terms disrespectful to one of the co-ordinate branches of the gov eminent. Thequestion was then submitted whether the documents should be accepted by the court as evidence in this case. The court decided by a vote of 11 to 8 that they should be received. Mr. Ewing : We insistupon a two-thirds vote as much in questions of this sort as in in the final vote. The court decided to postpone this ones tion for farther discussion but determined on receiving the documents in the pre?ent instance. The court then adjourned. NOTICE. xTnTTriT? Ti HEREBY GIVES.
