statement to the court. When the gen-
eral came iu he saluted the court with a
courteous Low and said : " If anything
that I may have s lid or done yesterday,
offended the dignity of the court, I regret
it exceedingly. As to other parties, I
nave no regrets." Judge Goodman re-
plied : "General Shelby, jour conduct
yesterday in appearing before
the court in an untie condition
iind showing r.n insubordinate spirit, was
reprehensible in the extreme, as it was
not only in defiance of the dignity of
the court, but calculated to prejudice the
interest of the defendant. You are a
man of national reputation, and ei.joy
the respect and confidence of a large
number of people in Missouri. I can
only say that I was much astonished at
jour verjr reprehensible action of yes-
terday. It is in testimony that j'ou have
drawn a pistol right iu the verge of the
court, which is in itself a contempt of
Genera! Shelby, interrupting: " That,
sir, is false!"

ton testified to it under oath."
General Shelby: " Then he lied."
The eo.irt: " Tbe court is amply sat-
isfied with your apology to it, but j our
attitude towards the attorneys for the
State j-esterdaj', in ausweiing thein in a
threatening manner, aud your talk of
calling them to personal account, cannot
