Trial of Rey. S. P. Linn—The Testimony;
SECOND DAI.T.MORN MG SESSION. .
The Court assembled at half past nine
o'clock yesterday mornimr, and was
opened with prayer by the
Rev. W. W. Gillespie.
The minutes of the preceding . See
skku were read and approved.'
The Clerk moved that au additional
Clerk be appointed to transcribe thetes
timony, and nominated Rev. Mr. Risher,
who was d sly elected.
Mr. McKinney said that before pro-
ceeding with the case be desired to state
to the Court that there was some evi
dence which had been ruled out at a pre
vious session that the prosecution was
desirous to have before the Court. Ho
referred to the testimony of Mr. Rep
koins as to what occurred in his family.
' The Moderator held that hearsay ,evi
dence could not be admitted.. ,
Dr. M'Kinney was , of opinion th t the
word 'knowledge Was not to be ; u der
stood in its common acceptation peri
sonal knowledge,but that anything that/
might come to haknowledge by hearsa y
Or otherwise might be given in evidence.
The Moderator overruled the motionto
receive siich testimony. ' •
The court then proceeded with the case
and the following witnesses were ea.'
Mr.. - Thonsas Taber sworn, lam an elder
cu l l
in the Westminiter Church; 01 land.
The session of that church remo nstr ated
with Mr. Linn for his conduct with tee.
Mr. Linn admitted • his indiatneti and
promised to avoid a iepetition of hem.
There was a petition signed by several
members of the church asking that Mr.
Linn be retained as pastor. The persons
signing the petition . were not against
the older members of the church. The
gentleman who carried the petition
around and was most influential in hav
ing it signed, was one of the main pillars
of the church. It was. thought by some
that the young brother had been harshly
used, and the congregation was therefore
divided into districts and visited by the
elders, in order to ascertain what ground
there was for the rumors in' , circulation
The prosecution proposed to-prove by
this witness the action of the session in
Mr. Linn's case at Cleveland. •
The defensti objected on the ground
that the session had kept a record of its
proceedings, and that such record being
in existence NV2S the best evidence of the
'action of the session. Objection sus
The prosecutor modified his question
• Did the members cf the session re.
quest Mr. Linn to resign?
Answer—They did not. Mr. Hopkins,
thedeacon, requested him to resign
without the knowledge of the members.
Do not know that Mr. Linn promised to
keep that request secret, or that during
the latter part of his ministry some of the
elder scholars in the Sunday School did
not approve of his conduct.
Mr. McKinney took occasion here to
call the attention of the Moderator and
Court to the generosity of the prosecatlon.
He said that they did not know what the
witness would testify to and consequent
ly Mr. Linn had the benefit of . all , this
testimony. He said it evinced the strong
desire of the prosecution to get out the
truth in this matter. [Laughter.] •
Mr. McKinney in his great desire to
get at the truth, attempted to reach it
without the aid of facts, but through
dame rumor. He proposed to prove that
Mr. Linn had been guilty of certain spe
cific indiscretions, by having the witness
swear that Mr. zones told Mrs. Grundy
that his wife's sisters told her that Mr.
Linn's repuation was not what it
should tie. ,
The Moderator overruled the motion.
Mr. McKinney said that he did not de.
sire to be considered captious, or he
would appeal from the decision of the
Moderator, and would carry the matter
to the General Assembly. It was clearly
contrary to all.precedent.
Dr. Martin arose to address the - Court
on the question. He objected to the man
ner in which the case was conducted.
He referred to the btckerings between
the prosecuting attorney and the Moder

erator,]—l protest eulainat being called a
prosecuting attorney. Mr. Moderator,
the language is discourteous, to say
the least of It. I will not submit to it.
ComparatiVe order having been re
stored, the examination proceeded.
Dr. McKitineY—Did Mr. Linn's con
duct have al wide spread influence for
evil in the communit3?
Answer—lt had some evil influence,
but it was not wide spread. His reputit•
tion was that he was light and frivolous,
and lacked clerical dignity, and that his
conduct was unbecoming a minister.
Mr. McKinney—What was his intlu
mice for evil? •
Answcr—lt was , not wide spread; it
extended to two or three.
. Mr. McKinney—lt was wide spread.
Witness—No, it was not wide spread.
Mr. McKinney—Yes, not wide spread.
There was influence for evil.
Cross-examined—Tile defendant was,
not placed on trial for the Indis
cretions referred to; he had a hearing,
made a lengthy defense, and promiseed
to, reform in future. When be resigned
his charge the session gave him a clear
acquittal; the hearing was had before a

queedon,—Did -families or individuals
withdraw from the Church in conks
quence-of Mr. Linn's conduct toward
Answer—One family ' did; another
family left after the knowledge of these
indiscretions on account of them; other
families left, but I am unable to state lbr
what reason. I have no personal
knowledge of the circulation of a
petition asking Mr. Linn to re
main as pastor of the congregation.
Tb fi session thought best to go out and
'talk with certain members of the congre
gation and settle the disturbance arising
in the congregation; there was an inform
al meeting of the session and afterwards
a meeting of the session and trustees, or a
portion of them, at which a private letter
was drawn up asking Mr. Linn to resign.
Before., the paper was completed I left.
I never saw the paper and do not know
what it contained. Mr. Linn -was not
present at that meeting. 'lt was expect
ed that it would be a private communi
cation. Ido not know whether M. Linn
promised to keep the matter a secret-or
not. I cannot say what influence Mr.
Linn's conduct' had in the Sabbath
School. In the congregation there were
many objections raised to his general de
portment. The objections were, to hie
intimacy with young ladies.
Cross-examined—Mr. Linn made ac
knowledgements to niembera of the sin
sion. It was not a formal meeting of the
session at which that paper was prepared.
I took my letters from the church when
withdrew. lam 'not aware that the
other family did the same. • I took the
letters immediately. There came to be
two parties in the cnnrch about that time.
My family withdrew from the church.
I do not know that Mrs. Lyman remained
in the Sabbath bchooL
By the Court—Some of the members
who withdrew returned after Mr. Linn
left the church. I retired from the
church main* , becauseof representations
made against Mr. Linn.
Direct—l do not know anything deft
nite about Mr. Linn preaching one of Dr.
Campbell's sermons and claiming it as
his own. Mr. Lion was not forbidden to
enter any of the houses of the congrega
tion that I know of.
Mr. Hopkins, recalled-4 don't know
anything about Mr. Linn ackuoWledging
to have preached one of Dr. Ciiinpbell's
sermons. I know nothing about Mr.
Ltnn being forbidden to enter the houses
of any person.

church the names of Mr. and Mrs. B. and
their daughter. I visited the family to
know why they did not attend chinch.
[The vritntsa here run off into a' long
story of hearsay charcti.gossip, and was
stopped by - the Moderator.] The, ques
tion was tnen modified by the prosecu
tor,and answered as follows:
Letters were granted to the fan:inv .. ' of
Mr. B. to the Second Baptist Church of
Cleveland, on account of Mr. Linn's in
discretions; another family were receiv
ed back Into the church who had received
letters on the same grounds. Mr. Linn
was present at the fall meeting "of
the Western Reserve Presbytery
and gave as a reason for his
previous absence, that he had been pur
suing afourth year's study at the West
ern Seminary and had found it profitable.
The Presbytery consisted of but four
members, and they took no action In the;
case because they could not perms it to a ,
successful termination. Ido not know
anything about Mr. Linn's reputation.

Mr. Lion said he did not desire to shirk

at the Presbytery

was instigated. I have been teaching in.
the Theological Seminary for one year.
I nevet told any one that

against Mr. Linn, except that article on

Dr. McKinney, the prosecutor, desired
to know if the defence would waive the

to be examined.
Mr. McKalg said that he was surprised
o hear Dr. McKinney ask the court to
violate the constitution and laws of the
Presbytery, when he had been stickling
for their observance ever since this trial
commenced. The - defence - had - 86 far

to be kept within these bounds.

The names of a number of witnesses
were called by the prosecution, but failed
to respond, whereupon the prosecuting
Committee, Dr. McKinney, stated that
the prosecution could not proceed with
the case - without the presence of these
witnesses or having their testimony taken
before a cotnmission. The Committee
had decided to amend the indictment ny.
an additional charge and specifications,
and the witnesses would all have to be

at-least ten days notice to the defenuant.

Mr. McKaig objected to de inning the
defense until the prosecution had closed.

fendant. He was not bound to make his
defense until the prosecution had made
out their case.
Mr. Martin thought Mr., Linn might,
without prejudice to his case, proceed
with his case.
Mr. McKinney thought that it was in
the power of the Court to compeLtho de
fense to proceed with their case: he was
not posative. however, and would not
urge the matter. •It might be that after
the defense had been beard the prosecu
tion would ask for ten days additional
time. if the prosecution were compell

A - Lawyer Arrested and a Policeman In
Tuesday afternoon the monotony of
Police circles in Allegheny 'was some
what broken by an arrest which cre
some excitement at the time, and
is likely to result in more of it. The
party arrested was a well known lawyer
of thia city -xvho got upon one of the cars
of _the Manchester Passenger Railway, to
ride to Allegheny. Da the way over, so
the allegations are, he gave up his seat
to some fadies and stood in the dooriiay
of the car. The conductor says he re
quested him to either go inside and stand
or come out on the platform, as he was
blocking up the door much to the annoy
ance of the passengers inside. This de
mand, it is alleged, was rudely repelled
by the passengeroVho claimed that he had
'a right to a seat, and if not getting it, to
stand where he pleased. The altercation
continued all the way over, and became
of such a character. it is alleged by the
conductor, that he was requested by one
or two persons in thecar to have the nn•
ruly one put off. This was not- attempt
ed, however, and affairs had become
quiet, when opposite the Allegheny May

The business of buying, selling and
trading in -horses and other things per
taining thereto has become very es
tended in this vicinity in the last few
years, and the demand fur -a that class
mart, for the proper conduct of the
trade, has been a want which
horsemen have often desired tilled.
Heretofore they have been com
pelled to shift about in carrying on
their business, thereby suffering conaid
erable inconvenience besides loss ottime.
Hence they will be pleased to learn that
this want-is to be -supplied by the ar- ,
raugemen Mai the well-known firm,
Messrs. R. H. Patterson eh Co., had just
completed. It is designed by the
firm to accommodate the trade in
this respect , at their stables, corner of
Stiventh avenue and Liberty street; 'which
from their Size afford every facility for
carrying out their object. The principal
feature at present, of the arrangment is
thit auction sales of horses, and every
thing pertaining thereto in the line of
carriages, buggies, wagons, harneus, etc.,
which are arranged to come off every
Saturday, commencing Angnst 81st.
They also intend receiving oonsignments,
and parties having property to dispose of
in this• line can be accommodated by
leaving notice at the stables. They ex
pect by conducting their business on
those principles of fair dealing and ,
promptitude, which have already gained
for them their reputation, to give satis-
Lotion to all with whom they have deal
ings, and which will, without doubt,
make Stewart's mart and auction sales
the popular resort of those interested in
the trade. -
