Mr. Wirt, (Atioraey General U. 8.) The courted (ua preaented himself in a very imposing eharacter, Momirui euna. A few hour since he was counsel for the prisoner, and 1 doubt whether be could have thus soon dien gaged himself from the cause. He has shewn the seal of counsel and not that of anrifui curio.

The gentlemen have not found the key which clocks the true construction of tha act of con gress now eoder discission. If aa act makes esa of terms kacwa to the common law, you must re. ier so ue common raw lor aa explanation or iboat terms. The first phrase need in the act was ' roboery," the definition of which ia to be found ia tha English common law, compare it with this act aaa you will nod that Uie provit.ocs or the act, aad (hose of the comotoa law ara precisely similar.

Robbery by weapon!, i where auch instru muta are used by the robber as produce lear which instruments are calculated to endangej uie ; and this is such a robbery as places life in jeoparay.

This law is stronger than the original act That wa MmurA wounding."

Suppose tha driver had heen killed, there would have been no leonardv. that would h - v been an awful certainty. The construction, therefore, for which the counsel contend, could not, under aov circumstances, be jcoparuy oi uie. it would amount to this if pistol it fired off, aod the party killej, there is jeopardy t if it is not fired, there is nn t.v. pardr i and thus the law is to ba made a m.r. dead letter. Mr. Wirt asked what it to be tha avidenra nf actual jeopardy .
