Cross examined by Mr. Hamilton – The one at the door threw stones; the one a little from it had a grape; when witness stood at the car he could see all; ; never had any quarrel with prisoners; the only persons he knew were the prisoners ;  one of the prisoners said afterwards, was vexed he did not murder him long ago.
