TIIIAI. r HON. THOMAS X. MA
ZIER. JUDGE 4F THE CRIMINAL
COURT OF DAVIDSON COUNTY,
BEFORE THE SENATE.
Testimony for the Nlntft Continued
Interesttiiffr Point Raised.
Friday, May 17, 1807. The court met
at nine o'clock, nineteen members being
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
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.
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
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.
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
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
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
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
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
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
The court then adjourned.

accept what are known as the Caninet
Concessions on these points. Mr. John
Bright attended, and delivered an address
to the assemblege. He argued very for
cibly against the D'Lsraeh bill and its
amendments, and showed that in mere
justice to the will of the people, as express
ed at this and other meetings, the Liberal
members of the House of Commons should
reject the measure altogether by voting
against it unanimously at the third read-
ng, and thus compel the Cabinet to remit

We shall oppose all Invasions of these, ami
