From the Boston Post trial professor Webster. The attorney general a opening state ment for the prosecution. Or. Clifford proceeded to open the Case for the prosecution. He said that in entering upon their respective duties in a Case Sueh importance and interest As this neither the jury nor himself needed anything like admonition to impress them with a sense their responsibility anything like exhortation to a conscientious Fidelity in the Dis charge them. They were All Here engaged in a service not their own seeking but imposed upon them by their various obligations to the Community the common wealth. And the prisoner at the tar. Mey were painful duties laborious end responsible but they were duties. And that single word carried with it All that need to be addressed to right thinking right feeling and conscientious men. Tref could not Bee faded slighted and All that All engaged could Hope for was by faithfully and patiently addressing themselves to what was devolved non themis their . To bring the Issue to a Rig piteous Ana just Crand-1ur v this county after a patient and careful investigation have upon their oaths charged upon this prisoner the commission the crime wilful murder. The jury had been selected from among the mass their in to near the e i Donee non which this charge was founded to listen to an to explanation Ana an. Ewer which the Eris once Mav offer to re. Cite from this highest Jud cml tribunal the Commonwealth Scult instructions As will enable them intelligently to apply the rules Law to the evidence and then to pronounce whether that Charce is True this was their High and responsible duty the Huhes and most responsible that in Der our system government id confided to the citizen. His is a different character and the vie w that he took it would be a Nopla the Mouti in which it was his Pur Nam in in ii this cause and Duroc ice to hem the evidence which. Will the Aid his associate it would be his duly to Lay be lore Vliet we isms no ii jew that duty As he regarded it was to a great extent a judicial one. He was there to Aid and assist the jury in arriving at the truth the too common idea the functions a prosecuting officer that he is to press a prosecution beyond what any seeker after the truth could do he utterly repudiated and disavowed and if such a demand were made upon him by the obligations his office he would not hold the office for a Day. He was there to represent the Commonwealth and to see that As far As in him Laythe Justice the Commonwealth was vindicated and the rights every person who was charged with violating it Are protected. He should Endeavor therefore to perform that duty with fairness toward the prisoner and with Alt Good Fidelity to the Commonwealth and the Community which the jury and he alike rep resented there. He need not pause to impress upon them himself that the excite ment which existed upon the subject their investigations and which it was natural should arise out such an event la Anjer Community in which life could be tolerable was one which could not teach them within those waiter the were there in the Clear Calm get the Temple Justice t h seek for and to proclaim the truth and the Are to try this cause As they would any other a Man they Nan solemnly sworn to try by the evidence give them. In this View the respective duties he should confine himself in the open Sig the Case to a Plain simple and concise state ment the evidence which he expected to Lay before them. He should Endeavor not to preoccupy their minds forestall their judgements by any comments upon in Terrences from mat evidence nor should he indulge in any discussion general topics however naturally they might seem to be suggested by to grow out the facts Tuiai Mugni sum urea 10 Mem in proof but he should Content himself with such an outline the facts As would facilitate. The investigation them and Jodi offer to thenh the grounds upon which the Erand our y had made their presentiment against the prisoner. That presentment involved two propositions 1. That George Parkman the person named in the indictment was murdered 2. That be was murdered by John w. Webster the prisoner at the bar. He proposed to Eive an outline the Evl Dence applicable to these two propositions Independent each other and then to ask the consideration the jury under the i rectum the honorable court to the form in which they had been presented by the Brand jury in the several counts the in. And the Law applicable to them. Or. Clifford proceeded to Stile Tho cof a Che upon which Tho charge Faihst the prisoner had been based. Or. George Parkman a Well and highly re up octubre citizen Boston was alive ii Rood health and sound mind and in jeer Ful spirits Erduy Forenoon Tho 93aof i Engle during the morning that Day in his Dii iary business avocations in various parts the City and up Trabont ten fifteen minutes two clock when he was Lav seen alive about entering the medical col lege in Grove Street. Lie was a Mirka by y exact about being at Home at the regu Lar hour and if to could w t be t Home it was his habit to apprise his family that he should be absent. And where he was to be found. The last act known to have been done by him was to Purchase some lettuce to take Homo for his sick daughter s dinner. Lie was to take that himself inv in g purchased some groceries to be taken Home boy the shop by. Lie then left Tho shop and proceeded toward the medical did not return to the store nor was he seen to leave the col Lego l to family became alarmed Friday evening and by saturday morning their anxiety was 8uch, that a search was commenced and advertisements published in Tho papers. Rumours were afloat that he had been seen at East Cambridge and various p its the City. His friends and the police heard so Many confident statements his having been seen in Dif Leren t parts the City that in one Tho he was repro seated As a avg Neon seen in the southerly part the City in and near Washington Street about five cocoon Friday afternoon. But nil these rumours proved to be entirely unfounded after trac ing All these statements to their source it was satisfactorily ascertained that in Weverjr instance where a prompt and to rough investigation was had Sheji artics were mis taken in respect to the time when to was seen in the identity Bis person. The failure High rewards one set Jih u in ipod to procure any tidings him and even the Hope that he had wandered off died away till at length conjecture and apprehension deepened into certainty twit his dits Pearce was a Nat one Rora me eyes men. It was his tit .1 vex k Emil heard from ur.vv., to Nair. R. Had been in his company at Tho medical College Between one and two clock Friday. The search was continued through Tho Veek. East Boston comb risk Sulci and other towns were visited and the River drugged. On monday and . A rooms in the collage were searched. Still Honses Yards cellars and Corners in every direction were being searched. But Friday. November 30. It was deter mined to push through with an Exanie nation a vault under . Webster s Laboratory it the medic us Colleen and there were found it Belvie n right thigh from the hip to the knee n loft log from the know to the Ancle and towels Market with t fio initials la prisoner. On that Day and next veto also found in the Furnace in the Laboratory fused in with the Clos and cinders a great number fragments Bones Gold and certain blocks min. A. A. Eral Teeth. On saturday morning in a Remote co Norof the Laboratory in place where it Hud Boon noticed but not exam ined was overhauled a Tea Che i added in Tan and covered with minerals and containing Tho Thorax trunk a left thigh a Hunting knife and some twin Marline wound round a Bono which twin would to found to correspond exactly with some twine found in another pert Tho prisoner s premises. These remains were examined and put together by competent medical and scientific Mon and found to correspond in every particular with Tho body . P. They indicated the nge sixty ind the form and certain peculiarities were equally Clear. They were Tho limbs Ofa Man five feet and ten inches and a half in height and in his passport found among his papers this was stated to be the height Ondr. Parkman. Every Frog ment disc Waird.

Vira Mont the Skull has been found which shows a fracture which in the opinion the examiners was inflict prior to the action fire. ". The Block Mineral Teeth for the right lower jaw being made to fit a Peculiar com formation n the jaw will be sworn to by the doctors keep and by mail. Or. Keep will say that he 6hould know them if he met with them in Africa for the set he made for . Parkman. And beyond this a portion the lower jaw not wholly fused was found in the Furnace and it corresponds with the Mould . Keep still " retains. It would also appear that the Teeth must Nave been in the head when they were Subjec Ted to the fire. This will appear from the manner the fusing. The Mould would be produced and the jury would be enabled to make the proposed comparison them selves. Two facts would be proved showing that he person parts whose body had thus been found bad died by violence the Frac tured Skull and a wound three inches deep Between the ribs cutting off some the membrane and probably reaching the heart then again there had been some chemical application to the flesh the appearance n Mui Luuri Raicu air Auu Imus a Strung b1h&11 that it was not a subject procured Fordi Sec. Tion was proved by the circumstance that it had not been injected with any preservative fluid and All the subjects in the College had been accounted for by the demonstrator Anatomy. The parts a been severed by a person some skill in dissecting yet it had not been done in the manner used for anatomical purposes. If the jury should be a tiered thut a murder had been committed we Rev the prisoner. The inquiry thus opened would la Ltd the ration facts Anterior to the disappearance . Parkman., evidence would be1 introduced to show the relation subsisting Between the prisoner and the de ceased but it would not be necessary to de Tail their connection till their Intercourse since 1842, in regard to Money Loans. It would appear that since that period Webster bad been always embarrassed in his financial affairs and often reduced to great Straits for Money. On the other hand . Parkman was a Large property Holder accustomed to making Loans to others and although a Liberal Man in his donations extremely exact id All Bis business dealings. A just Man himself he exacted scrupulous Justice from others. Willing to be judged by a strict Rule himself he applied the same Rule to his dealings with other men. In 1843, he loaned to the prisoner $400, and took his note. This continued along unpaid until 1847 Beu . Parkman made one a number to Advance him a certain sum Money to meet pressing demands upon him. Arising out connected with these transactions. Or. Parkman took from the prisoner a mortgage All Bis personal pro 1 Perth including his household furniture and a Cabinet minerals to secure the payment the Advance which had been made to him by Parkman and others and the balance due the note Oft 100, namely 318,83. In april 1849, a Friend . Webster . Cunnigham had an interview with . Parkman and subsequently furnished to . Webster a statement that the amount then due to . Parkman was 1156,29. About this period shortly after. Or. Parkman had received information that the property mortgaged to him bad been sold by . Webster to Robert g. Shaw to raise Money. Or. Parkman was incensed at this act fraud the part the prisoner and he avowed his determination to compel him to ,. A 1 y7 a l 11pay disa Edi. R ruin Iuis jury Wuriu be satisfied that be constantly pursued the prisoner As an inexorable creditor who Felt that Bis Confidence had been violated and who regarded his debtor As a fraudulent and dishonest Man. It would appear that the prisoner prom ised to the debt when he should receive the proceeds the tickets for his chemical lectures at the medical College. He received a considerable portion these fees and did not them Over As promised but made another disposition the Money. Or. " Parkman threatened to trustee . Pettee the agent the professors the College and requested that gentleman to be the bearer a mess Nae to the prisoner denouncing Bim is v this was the hta in Uvea ber., to get rid the inconvenience if a trustee process . Pettee gave the prisoner a Check for ninety dollars understanding that he would apply it to debt it was not done angry at Bis repeated subterfuges . Park a n called upon him again the 10th . November and declared that something must be done. On the 20th a writes to the prisoner. T tie 22d he Rode out to Camidge to see were the re unions the parties the fatal 23d no Vemer. On that Ino Rinnig lie called at it. Parkman s House and made a appointment to meet him St his rooms to him. Why did he not him then and there he was not to receive any Money in they inter Val which he intended to Nav him with. The prisoner Hen proceeded to the medical i College and there had an interview with . Pettee who told bin Parkman s proceedings and threats. The prisoner replied i have settled with him and you will have no further trouble about from the be " ginning to uie end he held out to All acquainted with his affairs that he intended to s Jar. Parkman out the proceeds the tickets his lectures. The Check. He had received from . Pettee. He had cashed St the Charles Piver Bank after he had told him he had settled with . Parkman. Passing from there financial affairs. Or. Clifford approached the conduct the Pri Soner from the disappearance Ondr. Park Man to the discovery the remains under his Laboratory a week afterwards. His visit to the afflicted family sunday his statement there and his untrue statements soothers the fires kept up in his room Duff the week when not needed in Tho course his duties. The.

He had said there were Ono two witnesses present and then thut there was no Ono present that one the Bills was 100 the Newent land Bank and then that he did not know what kind Bills the $493,74 were Oaid in.,. Rit above All was the extraordinary fact that there was found upon Hirni he i own hand writing two different versions what had passed Between him and . Park m at that interview. Or. Clifford said it was utterly beyond the Power his imagination to conceive any explanation that extraordinary paper which a Tould relieve the Pritner from the Terri ble suspicions which it naturally gave Rise to. Then there was the privy key " found in Nis Nocent alter to had said that it must Nave been taken away the Bunch Skeleton keys filed to fit every lock in the col lose his being at the Collego at known to be before when the officers Ulni Tod Bis room the second time his turning their attention to no Thor room the Anonymous letters which would be proved to be written by n sort pen which would be produced tending to turn the attention the searchers away from the Collego build ing.

Of All these circumstances he Lind afforded no explanation lie had wait 3d examination in the police court but Asho acted under advice counsel it won not perhaps near wary to draw any Deci Sive conclusion from his withholding explanation. R . Clifford concluded m ref Emir to the various allegations contained in the indictment which he said had been Tho Thome unmeasured ridicule in the news papers. If to had Beau at Liberty to consult his own taste he might perhaps have been Content to allege the offence in Only two modes but the grand Jur y thought Olio Rise.
