They were bailed in the sum of $1,600 each, with Jnmea ?. "Davis and B. 1?. Lee as sureties. JUSTICE TOMLIN'S DECISION. Following is the text of the decision Of Justice Tomlin in these cases: In ail of these cases the evidence Is nearly identical. That evidence consists of papers, books, lists of numbers, hol , low quills or tubes, and other parapher? nalia, all of which has been proven by the testimony of James Fitchett, intro? duced as an expert In the games of lot? tery and "policy," as the mode and means whereby these games are play? ed: and It Is also proven that the game called policy Is one of the well-known species of lottery. This witness also testified that the books in evidence are "only used In a lottery game," and he explains in de? tail the nature und purpose of each ar? ticle produced and how the game is played fri.-m beginning to end. The paraphernalia In question were gotten from the possession of the accus? ed at the time of th^ir arrest, and the witness, James A. Fltzpatrlck, testified that on the dates charged he bought tickets, in till respects resembling those in evidence, from the respective de? fendants, and that upon such pur? chase similar entries were made by the accused as the prior witness had stated were usual and necessary in the game of lottery. When the tickets or slips of paper with numbers on them were purchased by Fitzpatrlck nothing was said, no conversation passed between him and the accused who sold them to him fur? ther than the simple question as to how much he wished to play or put upon the tickets, with his reply of "10 cents" or '".'0 cents," and his handing out the money and the defendants handing back the tickets.. He went in, he says, to play the game of lottery; and from all the evidence before the court it is abundantly proven that the defendants knew that that was his purpose, and they sold him tickets Intended to mean lottery tickets. It was not directly proven that a drawing from a lottery wheel over took place, although It was proven that a book in which the record or register of such tickets is made after a drawing, as testified to by Fitchett, was exam? ined by Fltzpatrlck In the possession of the defendants the day after each of his purchases, and said books were seized when tho accused were taken into cus? tody. So. then, there is undisputed evidence that there were sold by the defendants I to Fltzpatrlck (who sought them for the purpose of playing lottery), tickets which were proven to be In all respects Identical with lottery tickets, that lie paid money for them, that a minute of these tickets was written down by the accused in the way all lottery tickets nro noted, and that afterwards, to us I certain the fate of the venture, he found in the possession of the accused, and there inspected, books or sheets, which, in their turn, are also proven by Fit I cbett to be used only in the game of lot? tery. Upon this evidence it lias been stren? uously argued for the accused that the corpus delietl Is Still unproved; that the slips of paper are not yet Identified as lottery tickets; that there Is no evidence of the existence of a lottery wheel, or drawing, either In this city or else? where; that there Is no evidence what? ever to Bhow that tho numbers upon Which Fltzintrick hnd put his money had ever been placed by tho accused in any sort of wheel or oilier device, which, according to the testimony of Fitchett, the Commonwealth's witness Is neces? sary for the consummation of the game; that whatever may have been Fltzpat rlck'fi purpose and heller when he paid for the slips of paper, and the defen? dants took his money, there Is nothing legally-to establish what the defendants' purpose was, and to ascertain It to be selling lottery tick.:If; Indeed, that on their part it is equally consonant with reason to Infer that the whole transac? tion was a pretended lotterv, in which after taking Fltzpatrlck's money, iho defendants did nothing more, never put any tickets in a win?ol. never held any sort of drawing, and after a BUlllclcnt lapse of time for a drawing to be hud may have simply rounded out the prior _FOR RENT.

In-, tended to reptosont results ot' drawings, but in reality entered by them as soon us Pltapatrlck'n back wns turned; In short. Hint thoy have obtained money from him under the false oretenae or token that a lot levy was being held, when none in fact was ever Intended; and that, if guilty ot cheating or swind? ling; they cannot be held upon a charge of selling lottery tickets. This reason, though ingenious, is not. in my view of the matter, sound. The foregoing evidence seems to me conc'usive of the guilt of the accused. The true inquiry in criminal coses is I whether the Commonwealth 1ms made out the crime beyond a reasonable doubt, not beyond a post-dilo doubt. The tribunal charged with passing upon the iesue is not to go afield, so to speak, and search ror hypothesis to explain away guilt: "for (he most ex? travagant and unreasonable hypothe? sis may b*e Imagined to account for any facts on false grounds. Tho true rule Is that a defendant is not to be con? victed by circumstantial evidence, if ail facts proven can be reasonably ac? counted for without inferring the de? fendants guilt." Comth. v. Dana. 2 Mete. In the absence of evidence to refute the evidence of the prosecution here, how can the conduct ot the flo ! fendants be reasonably explained othcr I wise than by the- belief thai they were selling lottery tickets? The fact that they did not testify in their own be? half cannot be the source of any pre? sumption against them. But yet it be? came their duty not to leave them, selves where the evidence Of the prose? cution has placed them. That evidence war; Tilled with danger for them, and left uneontradlctcd is conclusive of their guiit. In Dana's case, above, It is said: "If from the whole evidence on the part of the Commonwealth, the Jury are led to believe that the defendant did sell and deal In lottery tickets, and I had them in hie possession for that purpose, as charged in the Indictment, they would be authorized to find him guilty, unices he had succeeded on his part, as it had become his duty, to explain these facts and circumstances consistently with his innocence of that unlawful intention. To this charge, it" rightly understood, there la no legal ex? ception. It lias been objected, that by the charge, the burden of proof was thrown on the defendant to prove his Innocence. But we think title le not the moaning of the charge, for the Jury ?were instructed that they were not au? thorized to find the defendant guilty, unless the evidence was such as to lead them to believe that he was guilty. The remark that it was tno duty of the defendant to explain these facts and circumstances proved against him, consistently with his Innocence, meant no more than that he ought so to do. But still If he failed lliey were not to! find a. verdict against him, unless on the whole evidence they believed him guilty. If they doubted, they -wore to ncqult him. So the case was left to the Jury on the right, footing, viz.: that the burden of proof was not shifted, but still remained on the Common? wealth to prove the guilt of the de? fendant; and if a reasonable dodbt re? mained, defendant waa to be ac? quitted." But apart from the reasoning on this feature of the case, my construction of our statute, is that. It Is the Intention ot the legislature to forbid the sale of lot? tery tickets whether any lottery exists, or Is drawn, or not; IE a party sells papers, devices, &c, purporting to en? title one to a nrize In a lo-lterr, the criminal act It? complete. Otherwise, occasions might easily arise where the law-breaker might avail himself of his own wrong, Iiis pretended lottery might never" occur. He may have reaped a rich harvest in the sale of his tickets, and then go unwhlpped of Justice by proving that by having no drawing he never kept faith with his victims. HELD WITHOUT BAIL. Dominieo Diamado, the Italian shoe? maker who was arrested Wednesday and locked up on the charge of at? tempting to steal $1,110 he found In a shoe Pannle Barbour, colored, had taken to his shop for repairs, was sent on to the December term of the grand Jury by Justice Tonilin yesterday to nnewer the charge of grand larceny.

Tlie third day or the trial of Wilbur A. Coko for shooting Councilman James A. Ridgewell was productive of much evidence, and a largo number of legal wrangles over the admission of certain testimony. During the trial the defense has noted exceptions lo twenty or more rulings of Judge Martin, and an appeal may be noted if* the verdict should be against Mr. Coke. Judge Hanckcl returned from Balti? more yesterday, and sat on the bench With Judge Martin, who is presiding In the Corporation Court in this case. The defense rested its case yesterday ?afternoon, and court adjourned until this morning at 10:'.t0 o'clock. The evi? dence in rebuttal on both sides will be heard to-day; Mrs. Coke, wife of the defendant, said Miss Llllle May Coke, his 15-year-old daughter, will be placed on the stand for the prosecution. the Testimony yesterday. Tito defense introduced William Brown, a negro Jail prisoner, yesterday when the case was resumed. Brown tes? tified that while he was working for Mr. and Mrs. Oc-kr, lie carried a'letter from tho latter to Mr. Ridgewell, and brought an answer hack. Ho denied that Mr. Coke had given him a suit of clothes to testify. He snld a -man came to Mar? shall White's bar, corner Queen and Smith streets, and treated him. They talked about the Coke-Rldgewell ease, and the man said lo him that if lie knew anything about the case he bad better leave town, as Mr. Ridgewell had paid Mr. Thon; Sl.??n to convict Mr. Coke. The man gave him 5 cents to ptty his way on the car to Mr. Thorn's office, and there he met Lawyers Gro ner, Williams and Thorn. Brown said he couldn't identify tho man who bad accosted him in White's bar. He was a tall, slim, white man. with heavy mustache. He was told by the man that If he testified he would be punished, like Mr. Coke, CROSS-EXAMINED. Mr. Thorn questioned Brown as to what lie said in .his ofllce. He denied saying that he never carried notes from Mr. Ridgewell to Mrs. Coke. Mr. Thorn asked him if he didn't know be was tell? ing a lie. There was objection to this form of questioning, which Judge Martin sustained. OTHER WITNESSES. Mattie Pearson, colored, who had worked ?for Mr. Coke, testified that he treated Mrs. Coko all right and was a good husband. Samuel Stencil, colored, who said' he was employed at E. O. Lambert's bar, was placed on the stand. He testified that he was employed at A. S. Lam? bert's place at Sewell's Point in ISOti, and that he had waited on Mr. Ridge? well and Mrs. Coke In one of the pri? vate rooms at that place. He had taken them soft drinks. Mr. Thorn handled Beacon and Sten? cil on the stand In a manner that caused them to partially lose their identity and with it knowledge of events they claimed to be posted on. W. L. Williams, a'lawyer, testllled as to what the negro Brown said about ti.r. i-mo in Mr. Thorn's ofllce. Brown on that occasion said that he then had on a coat that Mr. Coke had given him, nnd had the offer of another it he would testify. Mrs. Mary Marsh was next called. She said she knew Mr. Ridgewell, but didn't know whether she knew Mrs. Coke or not. Mr. Bldgewell had not been to her house, No. 03 Cove street, so far as she remembered. An effort or the defense to have Mrs. Coke brought into the courtroom to allow Mrs. Marsh to see her and state If she had been to her house, led to a long argument by counsel. Tbo court ruled against the de? fense. Chief of Police Kisser was introduced by the defense to prove the character of Mrs. Marsh's house. This evidence was not admitted. NEW COMMISSIONERS. Judge llanckel, In the Corporation Court, yesterday appointed Messrs. Da? vid P. Watt, W- C. Cobb, John .1. Burke. W. B. Baldwin and Samuel W Pannill commissioners to appraise the property of Mrs. Elizabeth White, Mrs. Margaret Parker and Mrs. Theresa ICellv, which is needed for the widen? ing of Washington street.

Iinmblen Brothers, of New York, will assume the management of the Mon ticcllo Hotel in a few duys, probably on November 1st. They have been In Nor? folk tor several days, and left yester? day far New York after completing- ar? rangements for the transfer to them of Die lease of the hotel held by Mr. Syl? van us Stokes. J They are old hotel men, having been brought up in lite hotel business, and are eons of Mr. Jc?eph II. Hamblrn, one of New York's oldest hotel men. I-Iain blen Brothers now have a hotel at As bury Bark, one at Jersey City, the Washington House, and. until recently, conducted a hotel In the Adlrondacs. It is understood tha.t their lease of the house at Jersey City expires during the latter part of thie msnth, and that the efforts of the three Haniblen brothers and their father will be concentrated on the Monticello. Mr. Stokes left yesterday for Balti? more via Richmond, to he absent for a day or two. It Is unierstoed that he is extremely desirous of enjoying a complete rest for a yesr or two, and that his connection with the hotel at Wllkesbarre, Pa., expired some time, ago. The lease of the Ettiaw Hou??. Baltimore, In whjch Mr. Stoke* is laTsp ly interested, will, it is said, expire on May 1, 1JO0, and he will now attempt to dispose of his interest In' that lease. Mr. and Mrs. Stokes will, it l;< under Stood, make Norfolk their home and spend their time here as soon he can dispose of his interests elsewhere He will retain his holding of Montlccllo Hotel stock, amounting to $50.000. j There Is much speculation among the friends or the Monlicello as to the per pone) of the hotel staff under the new management. It Is probable that no sweeping changes will be made at once. The present fore.- of gphtleinanly at? taches is a strong one. and it<? mem? bers have won a host of warm f'lends, who will hop? (hat they will be re? tained In the hotel. RIDS OPcNED YESTERDAY. TWO WR'ECTCS NEAR THE CAPES TO BE REMOVED: yesterday bids were opened nt. the office of the LJ s.
