FEDERAL COURT— Richmond.- Wednesday, June 17. Mr. B urr. The court have very properly demanded some proof of the relevancy of our proposition. Sir, we are ready to prove it : we are ready to prove it upon people on this very ground ,- and we are ready to name the Post Offices, if the court requires it, which have been thus plundered.—When it comes out, that evidence has been thus improperly obtained, we shall say, sir, that tt is contami nated by fraud—l will name three persons who hive been guilty of improper conduct in procuring evidence against me. These are Judge Touhnin, of the Mississippi territory, John G. Jackson, a member of Con gress, and General Wilkinson.— Two of these persons are within the reach of this court; as well as the improper manner in which they have procured affidavits and witnesses against me. I men tion these circumstances for two reasons : Ist, that the court may take whatever steps they think fit to arrest this proceeding; and 2d, that they may understand the way, in which some of this evi dence has been contaminated. Chief justice. Let the con sequences be as they may, this court cannot take cognisance of any act, which has nut been com mitted within this district. Mr. Hay let some specific mo tion be made, and the evidence produced ; and if there has been any Crime committed, let the of fenders he prosecuted according to law. These gentlemen know the course ; and l most solemnly promise to discharge the duties of my office, whether they bear against Gen. Wilkinson himself, or the man at the bar. It the crime had been computted, it is not the province c£’ the court to notice it, till after an indictment had been found. Some desultory conversation here ensued, when Mr- Burr ob served, that he was afraid he was not sufficiently understood, from mingling two distinct questions together ;as to the subject ot the Post Offices, it might rest lor the present; but as to the im proper means employed in oU- ; mining testimony, tney were at ! this moment in actual operation ; 1 some.witnesses had been brought j here by this practice ; anil it was j otic which ought immediately to j be checked .- lie did not particu- ; laily level his observations a- j gainsc Gen. VV. —Tie did not say j that the attorney for the United ‘ States ought to indict, or that j such a crime ii committed out ed j this district, was cognizable by 1 tilt court, unless it was going on | while the couit itsell was in sea- j sioti. In that case, an attacti- j mtnt would certainly lay. Air. Wirt. I do not vet un- ! Jersiand the geutlcmcu. What is the object ol their motion l Air. Dotts. ihcie ia no mo tion. Wc shall he 1 calier make j u ; we have no other ol Jett by toe present anuuuciatiou, man to give a timely uouce ot out intentions. Air-Gun. M e have sufficient evidence on which to lound our motion. VV hac motion l demanded Mr. Wirt. Air. Burr. 1 thought, sir, 1 had sufficiently expl tined my in i tentions. I may either move for a rule to shew cause why an at tachment should not issue against these persons ; or what is some times, though not so frequently practised, I mat- directly move attachment itself. Mr. M l ßae, At whose mo. tion I Mr- Burr. At the public’s. jl ff r - M'Rae. A pretty prp ceeding indeed ! that the public prosecution should thus be taken out of the hands ol the public prosecutor! Mr. Burr, A strange remark indeed ! As it it was not the bu siness of the prejudiced person himself to institute the com plaint ? At thi* moment Mr. Randolph entered the court, and observed that it he had been present he would have himself opened this motion , which was intended to operate immediately upon Gen. Wilkinson, but ultimately upon some other persons. Mr. Ran dolph here read the motion which he would have submitted to the court. Air. Hav protested against this proceeding ; which was cal culated to interrupt the course of the prosecution ,- and was level led at G en. Wilkinson alone. Why these hints ? Why these mysterious looks of terror, with which gentlemen come itvo this court, as if they had something too horrible to be told? Mr. H.iv claimed from the court a priority for the business of the United States. Let the present prosecution he concluded ; and gentlemen mighc then proceed with their investigation into the conduct of Gen. Wilkinson. Mr. Randolph. The gen tleman, fir, will underltand this fubjecl much better to morrow ; but as he alked for fome intimation of our da ligns, I thought proper to ac company them with a few remarks. And fir, if this af fair be really lo stupendous, as I conceive it to be, if it be true (Mr. Hay exclaimed that it was not) is it not entitled to the molt serious enquiry ? if this lubjcDt bears upon the present caie ; if it may influence the relultol this tria!;ought it 10 be suppressed ? Your honor will direct me when to come out ; and I allure your honor, that 1 lliall come out with an affi davit of one of the wituefies themselves. Mr. Martin declared, that they would make their motions m the morning. Mr. Hay expatiatedat fome length ; he underltood the objett ot this motion was to aliett the materiality of Gen. Wilkinlon’s teltimony : and 111 what way ? He prelumed that thecouu would not notice the ! pretended iianlactions which had been alluded to, many o ther way than as amounting to a contempt. As to any oflence again!! the iaws of the U. 5. the j true course wouid bet pro- i ceed in the way of a predem ment. Now, what aie the principles of the laws ot con tempt in relation to this lubjcct Gen. Wilkmfon is laid to have ; taken the depoliuons of certain pet ionsin New-Oileans, and then to have brought them here by military Luce. fins is the only ground of the con- ! [Whole Number 269. tempt again!! this court. But how can a contempt be com mitted P Either by ditcdfly in tuiting this court; or abusing ! ts proct fs; or inten -,-ting iis j ll flics ; will it be (aid that General Wilkinson’s conduct comes under either of those de (criptions P Gentlemen have very often pleased 10 put words into our mouths : and on one occaiion they have made us to fay that Gen. Wiikinfon is ii the pivot of the profecuiion.” And is it this very pivot which they are now attempting to breakdown by this precipitate -application? Are the communications be r tween the court and the G. j. to be thus interrupted ? Is their examination to he lufpended, until Gen. Wiikinfon has been put upon his trial ? If these lulpetted iranfattions do a” mount to a contempt of this court, u was not his bufinels, ollicially to notice it. He should move to postpone the motion of gentlemen, until the piofecuiiou was over; for le veral reafons-becaule it would neccflaiily irueriupt the buli ne(s before the court —because it was intended to impeach the credit of a wimefs—and be caule this enquiry could be as well condutled alter as before the pcoiecution. Mr. M ; Rae. Twill affirm, Hr, in the presence ol this tiourt and the people, that the charge mow adduced again It Geu. Wiikinfon u completely unfounded. 1 af firm, that no wituels has been brought fiom New-Orleans with an affidavit along with him except one individual, who,rc fuiitig to obey the luminous ol the government, Was regu larly biuught beloiea private magidratc for his disobedience and dealt with aecoiuing to the due course of taw ; ana who is now in the culludy 01 a per* ion before this court. All me rest came as good citizens ought to ha e come; and the only lault winch can pallidly be attributed to them, it it be a lauti, is, that they came in the United S;atv.s’ vessel in which Gen. Wiikinfon was authoit. led to come. Mr. Wickham. Mav I re quest the liberty, fir, 01 making a few remarks upon Mr. Hav s motion i Coi.
