The seventy-first anniversary of the settle
ment of Ohio, the 11th April, was appropri-
utely celebrated last evening by the Cincinnati
Pioneer Association, at Smith & Nixon's Hall
The Committee of Arrangements are entitled
to great credit for the admirable manner in
which they had prepared every thing essential
to the comfort and convenience of the "old
folks" and the younger portion who were pros
ent. Early in the evening the gatlories were
thronged with the old veterans and pioneers
Interspersed with a goodly assemblage of
In the main body of the hall were arranged
the tables, five in number, for the banquet.
Henry Alms, of the Verandah, was the caterer
on the occasion, and he fully carried out his
reputation by furnishing a supper that gave
About nine o'clock tho company, numbering
over three hundred and fifty ladies and gentle
men, sat down to the repast. Tbe venerable
President of the Association, Col. John John
son, presided, assisted by the Vice President,
Thos. H. Yeatman, Esq. Upon the stage of
the hall, the Newport-Barracks Band, con
sisting of twenty-three members, discoursed
most elegant musio during the evening. After
the supper, Col. Owen T. Reeveg,of Chillioothe,
was called upon, and after a few brief re
marks, submitted a number of valuable old
documents, some of which were read by tho
Secretary of the Society, John I). Caldwell,
Among these interesting relics of oldon times
was an original parohment patent, being tho
first grant of lands issued by General Govern
ment north-west of the Ohio River. It wan'
dated February 20th, 1795, and signed by Geo.
Washington, Presidont, and Timothy Pioker-i
ing, Seoretary of State.
He also produced an original letter from Col,
Aaron Burr, addressod to Col. Mead, of which
the following is a copy:

Your obedient, A. BURR.
LEXINGTON, November 3.

owing to the great Daniel Boone, was read
from the original manusoript by Mr. Caldwell.

Judge Carter presented to the Association
several ball invitations extended to his mother,
as far back as 1806 and 1807.
The evening was spent in an agreeable
sooial manner. The old pioneers, their
and the widows of pioneers were grouped
the hall, heartily engaged in relating reminis.
cences of the past, and relating many incidents
of the early settlements of the North-west,
nnd Cincinnati particularly. It was a glorious
gathoring of those who suffered and endured
so muoh in early times, and may they all
many years to meet for the same object, and
the same oongenial and sooial spirit.

la? oonsequence of the rehearsal for Mayer
beer's ehef d'otuvre, Robert L Diable,
will be no opera to-night.
Wood's Thea. Tho Inimitable G. S.
Bucr.Icy takes a benofit nt this establishment
this evening. A lengthy program mo, and
"Luoroaia Borgia" in burlesque opera, is
National Tiikatkr. A most attractive bill
is offered this evening, for the benefit of Mrs.
Sinolair. An entirely new play, entitled Court
nd SUtije, together with A Mnrniiuj Cull and
the laughable farce of Love in Humble Life,
make up a longthy programme.
Tiik Italian Opera. Pike's Opera House,
the most magnificent Temple of Music In the
nion, was again crowded last evening with a
brilliant audience the evening having been
set apart .for the benefit of M'me Wilhorst,
whose representations In the Daughter of Iht
JteifimciU and L'Klinir V Amort, or the Elhir
of love, was exceedingly piquant and power
ful, as was evldenoed by the prolonged and
rapturous appluuse that greeted her every ap
pcarnnce on the stage The troupe, as a
whole, played and sang with spirit. M'me W.
never did hotter than in hor favorite role of
"Maria." Her rat-tat-too on the drum
"bo-ought down the houso." The "Tonio" of
Squires was very commendable, while Atnodio,
"Sergeant Sulplisol," was more than ordi
nary. Indeed, this artiste is always good In
evdry role he undertakes. The Ballet Diver-
tin ment passed off very agreeable with M'lle
Frank as the "Queon of Terpsichore."
There will be no opera this evening, in con
sequence of the necessary day and night re
haarsal for the production of that greatest of
modern operas, and masterwork of tho cole-
birated Mayorbeer, Ilobert le Diabtc. This
o pera is one of the most difficult, and yot the
S'lblimost, within the operatic reportoire. It is
perfect in its unity and sublimity, and we dare
venture the assertion that, from the cast pre
sented, it will be difficult for our cynical musi
cal artistes not to be pleased beyond measure
vt ith the musio, situations, etc., and execution
of this great and superior opera. M'me Wil
li orst as "Isabella," M'lle Colson as "Alice,"
M'lle Frank as "Elena," Slgnor Brignoll as
"Robert," Junca as "Bertram," and Scola as
uRaymbaund." We predict for the attendance
on this opera the largest house of the season;
Mary MoNhlty was arrested by Officer John
1. Jones, of the Thirteenth Ward, last evening,
for walking the streets in male apparel, and
Hocked up in the Hammond-street Station

All who are not members of the Pioneer
Association, and who camo to Ohio previous
to July 4, 1812, who were at the Banquet, are
requested to remit their autograph signatures

The Sickles Trial.
Washington, April 7. Tho trial commences
in enrnest to-day, and the interest in it becomes
intensified. As soon as tho dour were opened
the court-room was filled with a thionfr, press
ing; and crnstiing to obtain n glimpse of the
prisoner, who sits in tho barbarous-looking
arrangement to which he Is consigned by the
usage of the Court, though he sits throughout
the proceedings apparently calm and unmoved;
yot, when he gets back to his prison apartment,
he shows signs of oxhaustion, and when alone,
which Is not often, he is said to be a prey to
sorrowful reflections not thnt he regrets tho
act for which he is now on trial, (no compunc
tious thonght of that visits his mind;) but
when ho thinks upon his blighted home, and
the ruin that has been wrought by the villainy
of a false friend, his habitual self-possession
gives way, and nature asserts her supremacy.
The Washington papers have published a
statement that Mrs. Sickles is now in the city.
There is no truth whatever in the statotnont.
Tho lady's father oontradicts it in tho most
positive manner, and says that since she left
her home here she has been residing under his
roof in New York, under the protection of her
mother, and hopes that hor name will not be
wantonly or unnecessarily dragged before the
publio. He and Mr. Sickles' father remain to
gether in Court all the timo.
Mr. Graham complains that lettors passing
between himsolf and Mr. Sickles, have , been
tampered with in the post-office, some opened
in transitu, and others not reached their desti
nation. The Court opened at fifteen minutes after
ten o'clook this morning.
After some delay the jury was called and all
answered to their names.
Judge After the jurors were dismissed yes
terday, one of them oame up to tbe bench and
asked if he oould say a word to me. I told him
not about this case. However, he wont on to
say: I answered the questions put to me, but
since I have been sworn into the jury-box I
have been reflecting upen this thing, and I am
not quite satisfied with myself. On which I
said, I oan not believo you, and he immediately
turned around and wenton. 1 think it right to
mention this publioly, in case counsel may think
it proper to move about it. So little impression
did tho man's appearance make on me that I
can not recognize him now, but he is one of the
Mr. Moore, the juror, standing up, said I
was impressed with the responsibility that
restod on me, and felt a kind of shrinking
from the duty.
Judgo I hope you were.
Juror It made me feel unpleasant, but this
morning 1 ean say to the Court that 1 teel per
fectly satisfied in my own mind.
J udge Very well, I am glad to hear it. It
was the duty of the Court to state this.
Juror I am very glad I have this privilege
of making this explanation.
Alphonso S. Wright, the twelfth juror, was
then sworn, and took his seat in the jury box,
when the twelve juroos were called and an
swered. Clerk, to the prisoner Stand up.
Mr. Sickles stood up in tho box.
Clerk Daniel E. Sickles, look on tho jury
while the indictment is being read.
The indictment was then read.
Clork Upon this indictment the prisoner has
been arraigned, and upon this indiotment has
plead not guilty, and has put himself on his
country. That country you represent, and this
indictment you are to try.
Distriot Attorney Ould opened the case for
the prosecution, by making an eloquent and
effoctive statement of the oiroumstances of the
murder, amid the breathless attention of the
judge, jurors and audience.
The Judge said that it was unusual here
to have openings on both sides made before
any of the evidence was presented, but pre
sumed that the counsel for the defense
would prefer to reserve their opening till the
case for the prosecution closed.
Mr. Brady replied that the counsel preferred
the latter course.
The Judge said that, while the former was
the usage of the Court, the wishes of the coun
sel were always consulted by him.
The witnesses for the United States were
then called into Court.
The following persons answored and were
severally sworn, such boing the practice here.
Dr. R. H. Cooledgo, R. R. Stone, Richard N.
Downer, F.Doylo.T. E. Martin, P. V.R. Van
Wycke, Jas. Dubrow, Abel Upshur, Edward
E. M. Tidsall, Cyrus McCormick, John M.
Seely, Jonah D. Hoover, Robert J. Dillon,
Thomas Woodward, Reuben Worthingtou,
Henry Hepburn and Edward Dolanold.
Some delay occurred which tho Distriot Attorney
explained by saying that he was waiting
for a witness whom he wished to examino first,
and who was now In Court. He had sent
This witness was Jainos 11. Roed, a police
man. He soon afterward came into Court, was
sworn, and took tbe stand.
Q. Were you present at the time of the
death of Mr. Key? A. I was near by.
Q. Be good enough to state all tho circum

Witness I was passing on the Sabbath
tbe 27th ot February up the street Known
part of Pennsylvania avenue, running by
President's house, and I got up nearly opposite
the street known as Madison Place. I was
walking along leisurely, going westward, when
I heard a loud talking, as I imagined.
eyo fell on two gentlemen on the corner of
pavement: one was standing rather westward,
the other eastward. They seemed to be from
four to six feet apart. I saw the arm of
one who was westward begin to raise. Di
reotly I saw there was something in it, ap
parently a pistol. He raised the pistol grad
ually, and in the course of five or tea seoonds
saw him take deliberate aim. Saw bim aim
ing at the man eastward of him. The aim
deliberate. The man eastward was making
effort to get away from the direction of the pis
tol. In two or three seconds the pistol
fired. The man who fired the pistol moved
little westward slowly, and tho other advanced
toward him. The ono eastward followed
rapidly, but did not gain upon him till they
reached the place where the first firing took
Q. Do I understand you to say that
went to the middlo of Madison Place ?
Witness Thoy went westward, aud a little
on the southwest line. When they reached
within about eighteon or twenty foot from
where the first fire took place, the man
was shot at retreated, and wont somewhat
northwardly and eastwardly, up Madison
Place. The other followed him up, though
ot so closely, perhaps. The gentleman
was shot at ran up and got behind a tree,
commenced shouting "Murder don't shoot

To Mr. Ould I could partly see the man

who fired; I recognlted the mnn who had the
pistol; I saw Butterworth, Martin and Upshur

To Mr. Ould Two minutes probably elapsed
before I got up to the parties. I heard three
reports of a pistol. They were not in rapid
succession, but at nearly equal intervals. Thore

and tho last snap of the pistol. I saw a
single-barreled pistol IviDgon the pavement

Madison Place, on the east sido of the street.
He addressed a person at tbe corner, and

"Don't shoot, don't shoot don't murder me."

then snapped the pistol at his breast. He
then appeared to take a cap off the pistol

shots fired. I recognised Sickles whon be oame

To Mr. Ould I did not hear the parties say
any thing after the first shot was fired. Sickles

the middle of the street, and I saw Key try to
To Mr. Brady I did not know Key and did
not notice his dress.
Mr. Brady read the testimony before the
Coroner, and said that there was n discrepancy
between it tfnd his present testimony.
To Mr. Brady There were three snots Bred
and two snaps of the pistol. I suppose it was
a revolver from his manner of cocking it. I

side of the street. Saw several persons after
the first shot was fired, bnt none before. Did
not see Mr. Butterworth.
