fl *Led Pennsylvania and Ohio Rai/road, as'design.
ed' to divert trade from the ' Queen City.' We do
not think any such ' design' animates the breasts
gi of any of as projectors andirianda. The object,
q of course, is to open up a market for Pittsburgh in
the fruitful northern end middle counties of Ohio,
'lnd to bring their product to this mart. Very lit.
i t le of this trade, we presume, goes to Cincinnati—
its natural tendency being the Lakes. One object
of the road Is to open up ran road commtscations
with Cincinnati,. by means of the various routes
which are constructed or to be constructed, acme
the State of Ohio, from the Lake to the River, in
• which event the trade along the various MOWS will
... seek the best market, and thus excite • spirited
' competition between the two cities.
We admit t h at the probability is, that thin road
will be continued mute western border ofthe State,
as the charter admits, and through Indiana and ll
limes, to St. Louis--being Um - only and true great
ventral rail row!, from Philadelphia to the Muir
sippi. This will doubtless divert trade from Marin.
Cincinnati has long been aware that 'such a
great 'central road will be corustructed, and that she
has endeavored, and is endeavoring, to make her.
self a point in that road, althohgb by so doing' the
route is made to vary 6x fkun a direct line. tieihr•
ful of this very enterprise, which Pittabtiggh has
undertaken, site has striven with great zeal to do
feet all rail road projects from St. Loniii and the
Mississippi river. eastwardly, to that point, and
knowing that It was too southwardly for a route
through Pittebtugh, she has given every enema
agement to the Baltimore and Wheeling, or Fish
Creek, or Parkersburgh route, and has projected
a rail road through Chillicothe, in the direction of
his evident to the mast casual observer, that a
central riul road, designed to &lord facilities For
communication fihr the great west, should take a
central position between the Lakes and the River,
forming a mighty trunk into whims various lateral
roads should pour their business. Cincinnati bee
ing on the river, taken the road too far from a di.
rest line, and brings the fond also Into direct cow.
petition with - steam boat narigation.
Nature has pointed out Pittsburgh as the true
point where this central road should -cross the
Ohio. At any point above this, the drums:tons
ere insurmountable, except along the Like shore,
and any point Waco presents obstacles of a moat
formidable character. The table lands of Ohio,
sand of the great lama, come within fifty miles of
the river at this point, and the sanuruls to be over
come are extremely depressed. Every step you
go south of this, incenses the distance to the table
lands, and the difficulties to be overcome. From
Cincinnati to Parietal:air& or Wheeling, and from
thence to Columbus, taxes ■ road over the most
di ificidt country imaginable, and if a road is ever
built on that :route, it can never compete with the
great central route, from Pittsburgh west.
It is not surprising, then, that Cincinnati should
look with noxious eyes upon the Pennsylvania and
Ohio Railrond, gait will moat assuredly be the main
central truck of a great system of rail roads which
will connect the immense country lying between
the Lakes and the Rivers with the Atlantic cities.

This closed the case km the Prosecution. Mr.
Darragh addressed the jury in opening the defence,
He 'particularly dimmed the attention of the jury
to some facts which were admitted by the Com.
monwealth, such as that the defendant was a pub
lic officer, that he was in the discharge of his duty
at the time, that the deceased was in the wrong
throughout, that he had goody abased the officer,
that the officer was a man of excellent chancier,
been In the service some nine yearn without corns
plaint, and had uniformly exhibited kindness of
manner towards those whom it bad been his duty
to arrest.
The learned counsel then directed the
jury to what he oarlaidered to be the law In the
case, and proceeded with the tesomody for the de.
The first evidence was that of Dr. Samuel

stanoe of it was ne fellows—Examined body of do-

/owed it down to bone of upper jaw; considered it
an unimportant injury; the other entering near the
angle of the mouth, (not perforating the cheek,)
' and pursUing a course backward and downward
I to the angle of the jaw externally, to the bone.—
The last wound rough and jagged; appeared to
have been made with a slog, and bled a email green
tity, which was extmvasated blood. Had the slug
tot stopped, it would have come out of the cheek
at the angle of the jaw. Thinks this wound not
inimical to life. Appearance of body that of • man
drowned, or who had died from oppoplexy, owing
to extravasated appearance of face, and neck and
chest. The wounds of thenoelves could not have
produced death.
Dr. John S. Irwin stated that Dr. Dillworth call
ed at his office on the allernoon of the 12th of Au.

lion, two wounds, one on the nose, made by •
small shot. to which there was a small amount oy
extravesated thud blood.—The Doctor entered in
to n very learned disquisition es to the remains why
the deceased was neither killed by the shots nor
by drowning. His opinion was that the deceased
came to his death by appoplexy, caused by partial
strangulation. It is out of our province to give
this surgical Lecture, we have given above the
main point of his testimony. Went with the view of
making a careful exaininiumn, having heard that
there was a different view taken of the cacae of
death. An appoplectic condition would be apt to
product bleeding at the mouth and ears.
John CornellUs proved that in one instance un

!Erotica, to e.upe arrest, had entered the Alleghe
ny nver at Piu street, sod swam over to Smoky Is.

Wm. Fife proved another instance of a similar
character in which a man was nearly drowned in
swimming the Monongahela to escape arms',
E. W. Cook proved that this practice had not
been uncommon.

man On the morning of the 12th of August, the
defendant came to his aloe. At the ume this
event happened, burglaries were,very rife—indeed
they were so during the rummer, and until latelY.

Mackey and two on three other orstchmen,aboot ten

quor. Has known Mackey on the watch near
three year. As much as witness knows, he has
been one of the most faithful in duty, and the
most moderate in making arrests; never beard
but one or two complaints of him—one was for
being rather slack in his duty; sever beard any
complaint for violence before this; gave him a good
character otherwise.
Mr. Irwin asked a number of questions of Mr.
Robeor, relAtive to the comparative extent of the
city sow and nine years ago; also so to the coud
putative number of unoclunen now and then.—
The city had been increased by four wards, there
had only been one more watchman added. As
sistance, for that reason, would be .low in getting
to the bank of the river.

fifteen years; never beard anything against hie

his getting into an affray, some seven or eight

This closed the case Mr the defence. Edward
White, son of the cleansed, was Men recalled.—
Stated that the blood coming from deceased's
wounds was of the natural color. Had never
known hts father to carry any weapon, or to be in
any quarrel, unless he was put upon. There was
no black blood, except a little on the cheek, the
blood coming from the wound was unmixed with
water, and was of its natural color.
The counsel for the prosecution here °Tared to
call Dr. Walters to rebut the testimony of Dr. le
win, as to the probable cause of death. It was
stated that Dr. Walters had made an examination
of the body, and would be able to rebut the pre.
sumption attempted to be created, of the deceased
having come:to his death from appolexy. Dr
