day. February let,

Rheem, of Carlisle, swears this will
was found in Miss Stennecke's trunk,
and knows of no other Will. These two
letters handed me were not handed me
by Mr. Jilreem,. but were obtained by
me in conjunction with Mr. Newsltam,
at the Carlisle Deposit Bank; on sth
Pebragfy, 1869. Letters spoken of by

oI do not think is her writing. No.

hers. No. 1I do dot think hers, al
though it bears a striking resemblance.
No. 3 I think is hers. I believe the
body of No, 7 to be in-Miss Stennecke's,
same port-folio which I obtained from
the Carlisle Deposit Bank with Mr.
Newsham. This paper is dated Jan
,uary 14th, 1869.
W. R. Bui,Locx, sworn.—l am ,a

my hand was produced in Court, and

CARLISLE, PENN'A, FRIDAY,, J1TNE'40 4 369. •
is a copy of the : let-.
ter read n. evidence:•
- Miss MARIA STiNNBOICE '
Carlisle, the 7tl; Of,Hov.• DAB: ; 1
- - • Dear Miss STIDINEcRE,
As I have been rather busy in a last'
week I could not anavito soon as I
wished your-esteemed letter of the 20th
of October, which I received with much,
pleasure. But now I cannot endure to,
preserve longer silence, and. I havelle-!
voted a part Of this day to answer your,
last letter—feeling very grateful -for!
the long letter you have sent me. At!
first allow me to express you that the
sincere interest which fills my heart to
ward you is ne wise altogether profes-'
sionally. I keep the friendship of al
magnanimous and noble lady higher!
than the interest of my business. Thatl
you have - been getting along comfor
tably without any inconvenience or de-!
rangement since you left. Carlisle, I!
cannot help seeing in it an observable
effect of the Medicine. I have been:
astonished when I was reading in your •
letter that you ase eating sometimes at!
tea some werm• rolls and biscuit with
out having felt any inconvenience from
Iffileed - the-unpunished-succesat
of this action 'of .your free will and in
dependence seems to me to be a very.
good sign of riot having taken the med
icine without a delightful effect. ._I hope
and wish that this good state of your
health ma be of duration. Although
`I have no expressellfies -
out a soft doubt of their reality. For
I know as a physician how deceitful
sometimes this subjectivewell feeling
is. You have written me that the oc
ulist you have selected for - the treat
ment of your eye, has already relieved
Offie'gentleman and others of blindness
of some years standing -- adkig=qtrid - thatyou -
see in this a-proof of his being not only
nominally but truly a man of great and
distinguished ability. But with regard
to this I keep myself obliged, as a true
friend of yours, to express to you that
this alone• is not yet a full sign of a
really able and good Oculist. There
are many cases' of blindness of which
to relieve men is not too hard. I keep
myself confirmed in my opinion so
much the more as you have written me
that you cannot but feel sad,. and that
i your eye is no better.. If the mode of
treatment your eye-physician is pur
suing with your eye, is very apt to
cause a false leLch-bite, I cannot un
denten& why he does not use natural
leeches, which are to' be got in a city
very easily, and are a good deal cheaper
than the-generation you must suffer.
But, however, I feel very grateful for
the detailed description of the treat
ment of your eye you have given me,
and I hope yet you will have a good
success of it. I will pot leave off, look
ing in God in your behalf, for I know
that all human effort is vain without
the help of the Almighty God and of
our Lord Jesus Christ. Ad you Wish
'ed, I have called at Hannon 's-Hotel,
and asked for a pleasant room for you.
I got the answer that you can get it
when you come, and that the-Hotel
keeper will do all he can to make your
residence here pleasant. I would be
very glad if I should see you in a short
time, and I hope I will get this pleasure.
Returning you my sincerest thanks
for your kind inquiry after the state of
my health, I cannot but say, that I
am, thus, far, quite well. As a friend
I will tell you that I would make a
very successful business if I had the
sufficient money. Dr. Herman, whom
you are knowing perhaps,ls going to
leave us for ever. 'He bas.a.very large
practice here, as well in town as in the
country, which he has offered me, if I
would buy at the same time his three
houses here, for which he is asking
$5,000. He wants momentary $2,000,
which :I would pay now, and will allow
me - to - pay the rest of $3,000 in four
years. Out of his books, which I have
looked in, I have seen.that his practice
brings 'him in $lO,OOO a year If I
could bold only the hay of his practice
I would make well and good $5,000 a
year, so that the three houses were
paid in ono year. But for want 'of
these $2,000, I am afraid another hap
pier man will get this fine business.
Meanwhile I am quiet; the -will of my
Gad may be done.
What you have written in regard
to gallantry to the fair lady wßom gos
sips said I were flirting around, I could
not understand at first the sense of
your words, as I could not recollect
having waited on a lady. Before, I
had' not heard one word of this gossip,
but now, after having made inquiries,
I know that the origin of this gossip
has been in my medically treating of
a lady; who having been sick, sent for
M. M. STENNEOKE
People who did tuMtnow the reason
of myvisits may have thought perhaps
I weie' flirting around-this lady on ac; - •
count of courting her. But now as she
is well already long time, I think this
gossip, which I do not care at all much;
may be grown dumb. 13eaides my
life is very solitary and joyless:. I
know God will give what is :the best
forme, and that is my consolation.;
I hope you Will . 'kindly excuse'this
long epistlewhich comes late, and in
which I. am, convinced may be, many
errors of the Emglish language. But,
I trust you will not look• so critically
on the words but on the heart out of
which. theae words aro coming. lu,tlfie
hope, I am your ein6e7.Wriend,

DR. CONRAD, recalled—Question—
State from your experience or-knowl
edge derived from books, what drugs,
or medicines might make the symptoms
Ans. I have no experince. Frim
books, Wharton & StiHe's Jurispru
dence, and from Stite's Therapeutics
or Materia Medica; the description in
those -two Woks of the postmortem
appearances of a body dead from
'Prussic acid 'resemblea this body very
closely. The former work, - Wharton,
first attracted , my attention to the close
similarity to the description of the ap
pearanee-of the body so that -I was in
duced to look fitrther In thelatter - book
for corroboration of the first. The first
description resembled it so' closely that
with few exceptions it could not have
been better written it it had been writ
ten from this body itself. Those were
the only two books In which. t observed
anything of the kind spoken of. They
were shown me some time after 'the
first pose mortem. I was ignorant of
them before. _ . -
Cross ExamVned—l read the books
within a week after the post mortem.
The appearance of Abe- body and the
result of my examination; was the same
as stated in my testimony _a few days
ago, with one exception. I did not
state in my testimony - before, during
this trial, and the previous examina
tion, a chieurnstatkce I now remember,
and which is the exception. One of
the. gentlemen, Dr. Ridgley or Kelso,
asked me to look at the hand of the
body, for a ring. In looking,' my at
tention was attracted to the contracted
hand and fingers.
' -Dr. A. J. HERMAN, recalled— Ac
cording to the 'symptoms that I have
seen in the subject, anti from the de
scription of Dr. Conrad's post mortem
of the body; that it had
traces of natural disease, that, the -
brain, 'lungs and 'heart s and kideys
were all in a perfectly niirmal condi
tion, no signs of any disease, in the.
body at the time ho examined ; and ta
king the condition .of the blood which
is a fluid condition said to be occa
sioned by Prussic acid, lam led , to
believe by the compounding of Prus
sic acid and morphine, that that was
the cause of her. death.
Cross ExtztAined.—l do not know
•of a case wbertrany body was poisoned
by such compound. I never read of
of one. The condition of the, bio2d 'is'
according to, Stills . that produced by
by 'Prussic actd. Prussic acid being
a very quick poison, fak'en by it
self, in conjunction with 2.grains of
tartar-emetic, acts as a powerful, seda
tive in old persons, depressing apd re
laxibg. The affects of the morphia along
with it,with repeated. doses of morphia
in ever, two or three -hours, P think
would have a tendency to stay the ef
feet of the
_Prussic acid that long in
the subject, prolonging-her snfferOgs.l
revealed a case where these combina
tions were used. I do not know of
any ease recorded, where, this , com

Prussic acid would act .as sedatives to

Ans. I must Premise ray answer' by
saying that a medical geatleinan Would,
be unwilling to base,an opinion upon
the judgment, or the interpretation of
symptonis,:by what.might be called!
the ourprofession 'and in my
opinion - whilst I may- oonsider-qheae,
NUB by . the laity. as to symptoms, L
niust-be—infinenced-by the .-. facts .and;
incidents connected-with the, early his-1
tory of the case. Dr. 14ermati!s obser
vations, the facts there in detailed the
autopsic appeara4es in detail, . and;
from all these considered as related one!
to the other,. I know of no natural;
causes that would 'produce these results.
What I mean by natural, cause, is die-, I
-ease. I have an opinion.and yet Ldo
not know' that it would be• right. to.
express - it as an unqualified ;fact; be
cause it is based 'partly on 'llypothell-'
cal, partly on constructive prinelples,
lid partly on my own observation and
experience: owthis ground .am.
justified in giving an opinion, theft.
I will give it. The negative. facts
proving clearly that she, : died., from
no natural,. causes are clear .to ,my
mind, but ' tlicr positive data, whilst
I believe they show clearly that the
subject received both' pituisieacid "and
morphia, I cannot say unconditionally
that they caused her death.
an unconditional opinion I would ask
for more positive evidence' than we

and dropped it..
---Dr: W. W. Dahn,-Sioorst :—Hypo6
thetical case read to witness, and 'ones
tion,put as to. cause of death :
Ans. I could not - from the post
mortem examination see the results of
any disease that caused her death.. She
died from no natural cause,, evidenced
by the pod mortem examination. My
opinion, from the post mortem examin
ation as detailed by Dr. Clorirad-, is
that she died from no natural cause.
Such being the case and coupled with
the symptoms detailed here, the con
viction -would irresistibly force itself
upon my mind that the immediate cause
of her death was , epium or some of its
preparations. That state Might have
been influenced,- or rather the ,predis
posing condition may have been' caused
by other means, or the taking of other,
drugs or medicines. .
There may have been some 'predis
posing cause:; the emetic taken the
day before_ may have been the remote
cause,and doses which - would - not have
been 1) oiso no u dangerous would be
come so. The ocinibintitien ayirip
toms detailed I could not account for
in any other way than by opium, or
some of its preparations.

EVIDENCE FOR DEFENCE
At - 9. 30 A.'M., Friday, the case on
the part of the defendant was opened
to the Jury by W. H. Miller, Esq. .
J. D. Adair, Esq., (Sworn.)- - 1 took
these notes of 'testimony on the hear
ing of the habeas corpus. Dr Her
man wag 'swam and examined as a
witness on that occasion. My .recol
,etion' is' that I took almost' - every'
word that fell from the lips of the wit
ness. I have the notes before Me of•
what he said on that-oceagion. Wit
ness reads from his former notes. •
I took down almost every Word .
Have no recollections of testimony
except my notes. Dr. Herman - spoke so
distinctly that I heard almost every
word he said. Only one word I re
collect of not hearing was "hemi-fleg
la." Account published in CARLISLE
HERALD fuller than my notes.
S.,Hepburn Jr. (Sworn.)—l was
one of the counsel for Dr Schoeppe. in
the hearing of the Habeas Corpus.
I took notes,of Dr. Herman's testimo
ny. All that Dr. Herman said is not
all on my notes, but there is nothidg
in ttiem hedid not say.
Henry Newsham, (Sworn.)-1 was
of counsel for Dr. Schoeppe I took
notes, partial ones, there was more
said than was taken down. ( Witness
