The Prisoner in Court – He Hears the Evidence, But Has Nothing to Say

The alleged murderer, Jacobs, of Caughnawaga, was brought before the Coroner, in the petit jury room at the Court House yesterday morning, where all the witnesses who had testified at the late inquest were assembled. Mr. Corneiller, Q.C., attorney for the defence, Mr. Jocks, student-at-law, Mr. Brousseau, Government agent at Caughnawaga, Dr. Patton, Moise Lefort, the interpreter, and Dominique, father of the prisoner, were also present. When Jacobs entered the room he shook hands all round. He looked sad and ill at ease, but had evidently somewhat recuperated since in jail. He still wore the bandage around his neck, but the self-inflicted wounds are almost healed.

The witnesses were all re-sworn and their evidence, as already given, was read to the prisoner. When asked at the end of each deposition if he had any questions to ask, he replied no and signified his statement to that effect. Two of the witnesses made trifling changes in the wording of their previous statements, and Jacobs was taken back to jail. On the way through the corridor he met his mother-in-law. He fell on his knees, and both wept bitterly. Rising he attempted to embrace her, but she pushed him quietly away, and they parted both sobbing.

The coroner will formally commit the accused on Saturday for trial at the Court of Queen`s Bench. Until then he will not be permitted to see anybody.
