SATURDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 1. To ike Editor of the Jounud— SIR:—^I notice in your Journal of Sept. Ittii, an article which appears to bfe ed-itQrial, on the case of George Wiseman and wife, vs, East Haddam, which ap-pears to be highly colored, and some parts of it unture and calculated to mis-lead the public, and seems to call for some reply. I am sensible that yon did not a t t ^ the trial, and must have recieved ybur information from some other person. I therefore propose to give a little histo. ty of the case and smne of tiie most im-portant facts as tiiey appeared in court. This accident happened at Wigwann brook, the south side of the bridge, on the i ^ t of the ITth of August 1858. Mr. Wakeman upset his carriage, threw out his wife and hurt her, and threw down his horse. Mris, Wakeman went t3 the house of Christopher Gates and called Mr, Gates who took a lantern and went to tiie plaee of accident where hie fbund Mr. Wakraian, and fhti horse thrown lupon his side between the fflb oi the carriage, lying (MMCOSS the grass be-tween the two roads, with his back to the north and its head just up to the east ruck of the bridge n ^ 19 or 20 feet south of where abutment and railing now are, and the carriage lying across tii^ lower road; Mr. Gates says he helped untackle the horse from the carriage and get him up, and with the lantern madi seardi and found Mrs. Wakeman's gold spectacles where she fell out in the lower road, and says he knowd where the horse, carriage and spectacles lay. Amasa Day and Wm. E. Cone testifi^ that they were in a carriage behind Widceman, and came to the place uid saw the horse up, and the carriage in the lower road, and Mr. Gone says he inquired how the acci-dent hi^pened, and some one said the horse and carriage was on the lower road, or too far down, and that in reining up the horse on to the upper ioad he upset, and Mr. Cone says he thinks Wakeman gave the answer to his inquiry, Mr. (iates says he did not give the answer, and there was no oth^ person there that could give it but Wakeman, aiid Mr. Day and Cone corrobcnrate Mr. Gates testimo-ny as far as they could see and under-stand the facts at the time. Mr. Nathan-iel Gates testified that he went there next morning, and examined the place and tbund Siat the tracks of the carriage were (m the lower road and that it was upset by the horse being timed short and cramping the carriage, and saw where the near fore wheel pressed tbe dirt sideways up hill, at the lower edge of the slope or grass between the roai^ and saw w h ^ the hind wheels pressed the dirt and i^i^ped a little before the car-riage upset. Wm L Fuller testified that he examined the place next day and found the tracks tnthe carriage where it came down on the lower oreast^ad where the fonw^ard wheds were tnnied short aod cramped and rucked up the dirt against the bank at the lower edge of the land between tiie roads. David Snow, if I recdlect right, testified muc^ to the same effect, but not quite so particular. The three last witnessss all agree with Christopher Gates in fixing cm^ the place where u e accident occurred Mr. Giatd-ner Swan testified that he went to the Mbodus PostoflSoe next morning and while there, heai^ Wakeman say the horse was not fit to driv^ which caused the difficulty—«nd I can prove thatM^, Daniel BnlkleK of Mra. Wakem^ has said that Wakeman was a d—m fool andif he had let the horse f b along infits way, nc^tig would have h a ^ n ^ ' I have not yet leam^ tlml tVakeman or Bulkl^ ever thought bt makinjg a claim on the town until a|tqnt t hm months af-ter the accident hapfiM^if^ and then wWn Wakeman m»de hn c | a ^ to the Select-men, as Ifr. : JameS; GMi^n testified, sta-ted ^ he too far down on theifewer roltd tmd reihed his horse up bnd iqpset, iwffnsf^ asVhe stated to Dea. Cone, Wlmbe ma^e tl^ inquiry ^t the time lae aoqident, I now turn to the plaintiffs testimony and here comes the rub. To recover, the accident must have taken place at some point where, for the want of sufficient railing the town might be subjected. And here Mr. Wakeman abandons all of his former acknowledgemento and claims, aod at last in Court, testified that he was driving on the east side of the bridge road his horse about its length north of .the isouth end where the wood railing now is, and that his carriage was turned over to the east. At that time the side of the road was protected by large stones, and if Mr Wakeman is correct, every man of common sense that knows anything about a horse and carriage, knows that the horse must have been tripped up by the fills ol the carriage and thrown down that wall and embankment, three or four feet high, together with the carriage and load —all in one awful crash, the horse its length north of the south end of the abut-m^ t, and the carriage right against it; uud Mrs. Wakeman east of the carriage. Mrs. Wakeman testified that it was after 10 o'nk'ck when they arrived at the Land-ing, and it was very dark when they ar-aived at the bridge and after the horse and carriage was upset, she went up be-tween the horse and c a r r i ^ on her left, and the abutment onherri^t, on to the bridge road, so that she complete^ con-tradicts her husband, imd my frien^ the Son R. E. Selden, a learned man, capable ^if disolving of doubts and mys^es, was called and he testified that tbe two roads were both excellent roads and where they diverged, one from the other, it was level, but ^ p l ^ was a snare. He was asked if everything about there was open to view, so that everything could te readily seen, and he. said yes, but he thought it a stum^ and he accoun-ted for the horse and carriage lying east and west instead of north and s o w by supposing that Wakeman was driving on a slight curve, which created a cen-trefogal force so that when the carriage upset, it swung the hmse and carriage round to tbe position in which they were • found, which was a quarter of a cirde. He was asked how that could be, if tlw horse was where Wakeman said he was when the carriage went over bottom uih waids, would not the h(Mm inevitabfy been ^rown over that wall to the east ? Mr. Seldensaidno, because a horse had a remarkable insthict in his fore legs to hold on. Now every perscm that is ac-quainted with a horse knows that he cannot put his fore legs out sideways to brace himself as well as he can his hind legs ; but Mr. Selden entirety fafled to explain how the horse and carriage were carried south 25 feet firom where Wake-man said they were when the carriage upset ; for I did n ^ understand Sfr. Sel-den to say that there waa any inclination in this centrefugal force to cany them south, anymore than north as the horse was traveling north. But if Mr. Selden had extended his imagination a little fur-ther, and have supposed there was, at that instant, a current aS air coming up from the culvert, around the abutment which formed a whirlwind whicb in com-bination with the centrifugal f o ^ took up the horse and carriage wbiriingthem round and carrying them south 25 foet until the force was expended and dn^qped the horse and carriage in the place Where they were.found; that, I think would have finished l£e picture. Wakonan and wife were, I believe, the only witnes-ses on the part of the plaintiff* that I ^w anything about the accident, how it hap-p o ^ or where, but more thim 20 witnes-ses were called to testify about the abut-ment, railing and the badness of the grou^ between the roads, which had nothing to do with the case, and not one witness of them all on either side ever heard that any person ever t h o u ^ it a dan^rous j^ace, or stood in^need of a railii^ any farther south, than it now is, imtil this accident haf^ned, and only 1 ne witness, out of all the witnesses on both sides ever^tiicudit there ougbt to be any extension of the railing, and he was silectmtn at the time about 10 years since and he has TOt thought of it smce. , If. tile accident had happened where Wakeman now swears it took place, and in consequence of the want of a sufficient railing, would not Wakeman have made demand forthwith of tbe town f<» dama> ges, and Imve called witnesses next morn-ing and showed the tracks of the carriage where it upset, and where the horse with that "r^arkable inslindiin his fore tegs" tore up the j^und Iniiolding cn ; but nothiiig of the kind has ^er been seen or; heaird up to the tdMlmony of Wakeman. d if it was sp ^Itreme d ^ , how eould know preciady where his horse was ? And i : it waa go extzemety daik aa he ard
