splendid pieces of architecture in the .
country. - The track of the rail-road

COM. VO, WM. S. SPENCER—Prose
num, 0. P. Ballard. - 2
This' was an indictment for • sOting
Are to and burning on the
,14th day Of
April last, the barn, of the prosecutor
in Troy, containing a large quantity of
hay and grain. ,
The indictment was found -against
Lemuel and William Spencer; 'but aa
the former left the country soon after
his arrest, the latter only was placed
upon his trial..
The evidence was entirely circum
stantial, and the principal circumstances'
relied on to procure a conviction were,
that some ti me previous to the burning
of the barn, Mi. Ballard had collected
a debt of Mrs. Farnsworth, the-mother
in-law of the defendant Which so ex—
cited Spencer, that repeated , threats
were made by him, that, Mr.. Ballard
would lose ten" time's.as, much property
as he had thus unjustly acquired.
The prosecution also gave in evi
dence, that some time previous. Thad
deus Spencer died in debt to Ballard,
leaving propeity sufficient to paY all
claims against him. That his father
and brother took possession of the
property, and refusing to pay the debt
due by , Thaddeus, were sued by Mr.
Ballard, and judgment recovered against
them-. That after this occurrence,
threats were thrown out, that this would
do Ballard no good, that they would
barn his barn, dr.c.
Thera was also some testimony to
- show. that after the barn was burnt,
the defendant said he was not sorry, but
that he wished his house had shared
the same fate with hini halt; and.iliat,'
at different times, he gave variant-.ac
counts of his whereabouts.ou the night
of the fire.' The' Prosecution. , after
having attempted to establish a concert
between the two indtiridtials indicted.
offered to prove - -thilleclarations made
by Lemhel in relation to this matter, to
operate as evidence against *Minn:
The Court did not deem , the concert
"wade Out, and. the . eindence
was accordingly rejected. • -
On the part of the defendant, setters]
witnesses were - called to prove an alibi.
