o Mr. Hagan's manner towards him when he (witness) was riding out with ladies on Saturday, and the defence introduced Bernard Hagan with a view to prove that his manner implied no threat. Mr. Pollard added that he was not influenced by personal con to the Mayor to make such disposition of the case as he thought proper. There were other witnesses who could prove that Hagan made threats against his life after having been bound over in the sum $200, and he must insist that this testimony be pro he had information that there was a witness, now absent from the city, who could testify in regard to threats uttered by Hagan after he was under bonds to keep the peace. He would therefore continue the case until Saturday next, and require Hagan Hagan to give security in the sum of $500 for his appearance, and to be of good behavior in the meantime. In reply to an interrogatory from Mr. Pollard, the Mayor intimated that he would also, on that day, investigate the charge of extortion, against the
e reasons which rendered it improper for him (the Mayor) to sit in this case. It had been a theme of discussion in the public journals, and he had heard, besides, that Hagan said be dare not imprison him for any cause. The record of the Court would vindicate him from any charge of partiality in the administration of justice, but there were reasons which forbade him to sit in the case now pending. He then called upon the Recorder, James K. Caskie, who, after disposing of some objections from the counsel for the defence, on the score of relationship, by saying that he should try this remarkable case without fear, favor, or affection, proceeded to call the witnesses. It was found, however, that only one or two were in attendance. The Recorder.--I shall continue this case until Tuesday next at 12 o'clock, and require the defendant to give security in the sum of $500 for his appearance. Bernard Hagan entered into a recognizance for that amount; and the Court adjourned.
Found dead in his room. --Bernard Hagan a well known citizen, was early yesterday morning found dead lying on the floor of his room at his residence on 2d street, near the City Almshouse. For some time past his health has been falling, but he persistently refused to call in medical advice. His death is believed to have been the result of a want of proper care and attention to his health. Coroner Sanxay was summoned to view the body, and, upon learning the circumstances, considered an inquest unnecessary.
