--This trial is still pending in the Circuit Court of Henrico
The testimony for the defence closed yesterday, and Mr. Young
commenced his argument in behalf of the Commonwealth
, but was interrupted by the sudden sickness of a juror, and the Court
adjourned over to this morning at 10 o'clock. The defence, as we understand it, are endeavoring to make out, a justification of the homicide, on the ground of extreme provocation at the time of the recurrence, aggravated by an em ered feeting originating in a business transaction.
Testimony has been, introduced to prove that Barnard
was severely beaten by Taylor
, though this was denied by the latter in his dying statement.
