THE COURTS

United States Circuit Court - Judge CADWALADER

United States vs. John F. HASSETT
The defendant, indicted for enticing a soldier to desert, was tried yesterday. Upon the 22d of October, at Camp Cadwalader, he was charged with having aided a soldier who had enlisted as a substitute to desert. The allegation of the United States was that he (the defendant) had sold to a soldier named RODGERS, for $50, a forged or altered pass to enable him to leave the camp. The alteration of the pass was detected by the sentry at the gate and RODGERS was stopped. The defendant being in camp, was arrested, but denied that he had anything to do with the pass in question, or that he had had anything to do with RODGERS whatever.

As further matter of defence, good character was shown. The jury rendered a verdict of not guilty. United States District Attorneys GILPIN and VALENTINE, for the prosecution, and J.P. O'NIEL for defendant.

United States vs. JOHN FROMMER

Indictment for perjury. The defendant was duly enrolled as a citizen of Bethlehem, Northampton county, Pa. He appeared on the 10th day of December, 1863, at the office of Colonel YOHE , the provost marshal of the Eleventh Congressional district, at Easton, and presented an affidavit, duly sworn to, setting forth that he claimed exemption from the draft on the ground that he was an alien and had never declared his intention to become a citizen.

The United States produced in evidence the affidavit above mentioned; also, a certificate of declaration of intention by the defendant from the office of the Court of Common Pleas of Northumberland county, certifying that defendant had declared his intention on the 4th day of June, 1859; also, certificate of naturalization, certifying that defendant was duly naturalized on November 4th, 1864. It also appeared in evidence that defendant had voted at the last election.

Defence, good character, and the fact that defendant cannot speak English, and that he did not know what he swore to when he made the affidavit above mentioned, but that he thought he was swearing that he never voted. Jury out.
