16th. Did he not, in the speech to which you have alluded,
advocate the right of the States to secede, and that they had
just cause for secession ?
A. I do not recollect that he did. But he did say that
it was better to let these people go, than to have a bloody and
ruinous war, or words to that effect.
17th. To the first cross interrogatory filed:
A. I did.
A. Yes, sir.
A. Don't recollect that I did; don't think I did.
A. I have; felt gratification at all the triumphs in clearing
out. West Virginia.
A. Yes, sir; felt regret, and expressed it about the issue
of Bull Run.
In your direct examination you state "it was well known
that they (the Registers) did not sit on the two last days re-
quired by law, before publication of the list." Was it or
not as well known that they were prevented from doing so by
the serious bodily injury of one of the Registers, and. the
sickness of another?
A. It was reported that one was sick and one had been hurt;
don't know the fact; I saw the one said to have been hurt, in
town for several hours on the last of those days referred to;
he appeared to be attending to his business, was in the act
of putting his horse to the carriage when I noticed him.
But I do know the fact that they did not sit on the last of
the two days referred to, for I went into the house where
they had been sitting, and they were not in session between
the hours required by law.
Did not the Judges at said election in this district appoint
as one of their clerks a certain John W. Polk, who was
known to the said Judges was an officer in the Confederate
army and captured and taken prisoner in one of the battles
fought before or near Richmond, in 1865.
(This question and answer objected to by claimant.)
A. They did.
