Criminal Court.?The trial of John Eggleston, for the murdor of Kohnnan, on the 4th of July last, commenced yesterday. The District Attor ney made the opening address, describing, briefly, the circumstances of the homicide, and admitting a conflict of testimouv in relstiou to prominent parts of the evidence. Mr. Wharton, for defence, followed, calling the aUenHon of the jury to the admission of Mr. Key, and also to his remark be fore the jury at the trial of Sullivan, that the bra vado of Kgglestou with respect to his killing of Kohrman was, if unsupported by other testimony, entitled to little weight; in fact, it might be con strued as evidence of his innocence. Mr. Whar ton thought the duty of the jury a very easy one, in view of what had been proven ou the trial of Ballivan, and the past and present acknowledg ments of the proeccution. The witnesses for the Government, with the ex ception of Wrn. Sullivan, are the same, an J their evidence is the same as in the trial of Sullivan. William Sidlivan was put upon the stand, and testified that he was at Beckert's tavern or> the occasion of the murder. Was engaged in a fight with Myers, who hit witness with a loaded whip. Witness told figgleston of this, when Eggleston caught Myers by the ears and pulled him down. Eggleston then advised witness to leave the ground, but witness remained to get his hat, and Eggleston left. Eggleston was in liquor. Thomas Dawsou deposed to Eggleston's saying that ho " had killed a man at the Park, and would give ten dollars to any man to cut his throat."? Eggleston was in liquor at the time. Thirty or forty persons were standing round at the time. Several besides witness hoard the remark. Mr. Frankinbcrger. Sullivan was at my tavern, and called Eggleston aside and said to him, "You'll have to leave hero to-night," when Eggleston re plied, " He wished he bad never seen this 4th of July, and would give anybody ten dollars to cut his throat" Eggleston left witness's house that night William Sullivan re called. Eggleston advised witness to leave the ground. When Eggleston left Kohrman was well to all appearance. Witness saw no knife at all, but heard Richard Jones cry out, " look out, there is a knife about." Witness persuaded Eggleston to do this to get rid of the difficulty. They came back the next night. Isaiah Stewart, not examined on Sullivan's trial, deposed to going to Beckert's with his brother, Esther Eggleston, and others. Saw Sullivan there. Saw the handle of such a knife as that in Court in Eggleston's pocket at a pic nic, on Fourteenth street, on the 4th of July. Did not soe Eggleston with it at all at Beckert's. Did not nee Sullivan with any knife. Saw his brother Daniel strike de ceased with a riding whip. This was not a hard blow. The first he heard of Kohrman's death was when the officers came to witness's house to arrest him. Did not h^ar Eggleston say he had stabbed a man. Egglestdfi was not very drunk. Saw no blood ou Eggleston's person. The other testimony is much the same as be fore, and chiefly relates to the confession of Eggles ton?that he had killed a man that night The oourt adjourned to give the prosecution an opportunity to bring witnesses into court. The Constitution ?To day is the birthday of the constitution. The ltth day of September, 1787, was the day on which the-Constitution of the United States was presented to the considera tion of Congress, by the convention, of which George Washington was President, and in which it was adopted. The Monument.?The beautiful block of Ver mont marble contributed by the American Medical Association to the Washington National Monu ment, has arrived on the grounds and been safely housed with others in the building reared for their preservation and safe-keeping until they shall bo placed in position in tho Monument itself. This blook is moat beautifully and elaborately sculptur ed, and bears the inscription? "AMERICAN MEDICAL ASSOCIATION, "Instituted 1847. " Vincit amor patriot." The design represents tho interview between Hippocrates, the Father of Medicine, and the Am bassadors of Artaxerxes, of Persia, who brought him costly presents and money, to induce him to leave his native country and enter the King's ser vice, and us in the act of answericg, " Tell your master that I am rich enough ; that honor will not permit mo to accept his gifts, nor to go into Asia to succor the enemies of Greece." The cost of the work on this stone is J 1,000. Men are at work pointing the steps of the Mon ument, the cement having been washed away by the body of water which is dashed violently upon them, during storms, from the immense sarface of the shaft exposed to their fury. Tho Board aro about to erect a 6hed or other structure around the base of tho Monument, which will, in future, protect it from storm and tcmpeet. Do ra mi fa sol la. ce do.?Reader, can you sing ? Did you ever try ? How do you know you can't sing ? You can make a noise, did you say ? Well, singing is making a noise, pleasantly. If you simply make a noiBe, you render yourself dis agreeable. Singing is'tho art of making a noise, agreeably. If you know how to make noise agree able and pleasant, it matters not how much noise vou make in the world. The barking of a dog is sometimes very disagreeable, especially whon it is accompanied by a prolonged howl under your win dow, at night. But circumstances may arise, in which the bark ing of a dog would be considered the sweetest mu sic. It depends on time. If the_dog knew how to divide time rightly, and would choose a proper time, he has notes enough to make a concert of sounds. But the brute, though dogmatical enough in other respects, is positively too dumb for that But you are not a dog, nor yet a savage. Can you sing ? that's the question. No. Are you fond of hear ing others sing? Well, then, you must be savage indeed. But it is written that? " Music has charms to sootho tho savage breast! " Now, if you wish to become humanized?to learn how to make yourself agreeable and acceptable, especially to the ladies?learn to sing. There is not the slightest trouble about it Just place your self under the instruction of Mr. Glenroy, who is teaching a class in the basement of the Sixth Church, Island, aud he will soon teach vou tho difference between a flat and a sharp. He has a class of eighty scholars. They meet on Tuesday of each week. Documents.?We ntated yesterday that docu ments mailed in this city for Warrenton, Va., and Ellicott's Mills, Md., had not been received. Wo understand that the Postmaster has decided that documents having the frank of members of Con gress, after the adjournment, is presumptive evi dence of forgery. Now it happens that all the documents alluded to were franked by Hon. H. Marshall, with his own hand, during the extra ses sion of Congress. Are these forgeries? were we not on the eve of a Presidential election, or were these Democratic documents, a forgery would not have been dreamed of. Stoves, Grates, Ac.?We ask the attention of the reader to the advertisement of James Skirv ing In to-day's paper. Winter is coming with his icy blasts, and you had hotter prepare for his ad vent, and be ready to give him a warm reception. Mr. Skirving offers you the means of doing so, with comfort to yourself and all about you. Call and see him. Disgusting.?A woman handsomely dressad, and having the outside appearance of a lady, jra* seen yesterday evening, on Maryland aveuue, drunk! She was so far gone as to be unable to walk?frequently falling aud iojuring herself. She was at one time surrouuded by a crowd of heart less, rowdy boys, who mad'.- sport of her condition And tantiilized and insulted her.

BY TBI HO ['SB FRUITING TEL BO BATH. T he Baltimore Convention. Baltimore, Sept. 17.?Tbo city Is thronged with delegates to the National Whig Convention. The (lay is propitious, and all arrangements are in ad mirable order. The immense hall of the Maryland Institute is beautifully decorated. The delegates' seats are enclosed in the centre of the room on a spacious platform, and a space of 800 feet is left on each sido for the audience; which, together with the galleries, will accommodate 4,000 per sons. Every train brings accessions to the delegations. At noon the hall was crowded with spectator*, and a full attendance of delegates representing twenty-six States. Those not represented are Cal ifornia, Wisconsin, Texas, Iowa, and Michigan. At 12 o'clock the Convention was called to Older by Wm. Schley, of Baltimore ; and ex-Gov. Hunt, of N. Y., was chosen temporary chairman, who made an eloquent speech in acknowledgement of the honor conferred upon him. He spoke of the present critical position of the affairs of the country and the danger which men aced the perpetuity of the Constitution from *ec tional parties and called upon the Whigs of the Union to join in their conservative *ffoits to pre serve peace and unanimity of feeling. They had assembled on this auspicious day in the name of the Constitution and the Union, and urged his fellow-Whigs to stand in their might to rebuke fanaticism and sectionalism, and patriotically labor to secure to posterity the precious inheritance se cured us by our fathers.
