ATanlnr W Thomu- Thomu- wltnMi for th rfflfenift. having bun first duly sworn by the Judge-Advocate, Judge-Advocate, Judge-Advocate, In the presence of the accused, testified as follows: BXAJf 111 ATI OU IK CUIKT BY COUNSEL roft AGCUSKD. Q. What Is your occupation and resldtneef A. Farmer, Spettecr county. Q. Do you know the prisoner? A. I do, sir. Q.-Caii Q.-Caii Q.-Caii you state an) thing ot his general reputation and character in Spencer county? A I hare seen Mr. Berry very frequently in our neighborhood. I never felt uneasy when Mr. Berry was aronnd. Be has always dvportcd himself as a gentleman. He was in a business tliiit his friends would peisuade him to get out of; ho was a man, they thought, qualified for better porpsaes. I can state Mr. Berry was at my house in bad company. Judge-Advocate Judge-Advocate Judge-Advocate WelU never mind, don't eay anything anything that will hurt Mr Berry. Q,Tfl it true that when this happened he tried to prevent prevent them from committing The Judge-AdTOcalQ. Judge-AdTOcalQ. Judge-AdTOcalQ. I object to the question upon the well-known well-known well-known principle of law that In proving general reputation, you shall not attempt to pro?e any special occasion. . , , Tbo Council for the Accused I am not asking for a special occasion, I know -upon -upon the nice letter of the law special instances are not compstcat to pro re general reputation; but, in order to strengthen hia testimony, I dcsnohlmtospcclfyacase. The Judge-Advocate Judge-Advocate Judge-Advocate I will read the law npon the subject, Oreenleaf; page 6S3, declares the rule: "The regular mode of examining into the general reputation is to inquire of the witness whether ho kuows the gecsialreputstlsnof thepereonin question among nls neighbors; and what that reputation is. In the English Comts the course la further to inquire whether, from lucli knowledge- knowledge- the witness would believe that pmon upon his oath. In the American Coorts the tnft rnitroa has been Dunned: but Its Drooriet? has cf late been questioned, and, perhaps, the weight of -authority -authority is now egainsi pennmms, icq wuuees toie-tify toie-tify toie-tify si to hit own opinion. In answer to such evidence, iho other party may cross-examine cross-examine cross-examine tnojo witneesea as to their mews of knowledge, and the grounds of their cpinien. " The Inquiry must be mode as to his general reputation where he is beet known. " lie must bo able to state what is veneraUi xaid of tbe peisou by those ameng whom he dwelia, or with whom lie ie chiefly conversant; for It is this only that constitute constitute his general reputation or character. And ordinarily ordinarily the witness ought himself to come from tbo neighborhood of the person whose character is tn question. question. If he is a stranger sent thither by the adverse part to learn his character, he will not 00 allowed to testify as to the result of hli Inquiries; bat o&erwi&e the tZnnrt trill not tmdflrtkfl to determine, bvanra'fmln- bvanra'fmln- ary inquiry, whether the impeaching witness baa snm-cientknowledgeof snm-cientknowledgeof snm-cientknowledgeof thefacttoenahle him to testify, but will leave the lahie of his testimony to be determined by the jury." The reason Is plain. This manmaymake a statement of a certain thing. I cannot be expected, as opposing counsel to go into the merits ol it. 1 cannot be expected expected to show that tbe party receiving tbe benefit of this aneA nr l Tnisht bavo been one of his associates. The counsel for the accused rejoined that ho admitted in the beginning, that, as a ge rural thing, In. the civil courts it was not auoTvta 10 prove a single isolated in-tanronf in-tanronf in-tanronf it-hut it-hut it-hut m. nun msiv have dani ThA.Tn1lvd.A1l- ThA.Tn1lvd.A1l- vocate had asked the witness If the prisoner had not been a terror to the Union men of that locality. The witness bad B&tietactorily answered the question as to character, and now the counsel desired him to mention one little instance that had occurred, in order to strengthen what he had said. The counsel considered it a matter upon which the Cturt clearly had jurisdiction, audit waiforthem to believe whether or not the witness witness was. one of the party of guerrillas, 'i Im Court was then cleared, and. after matare delib eration, the doors wero again opened, aud the prUoncr cume into Court with his counsel.
