Q. Did you call upon Lieut. col. Wallace for bis reason for“ disobeying your instructions; and if so, what reply did you receive ? A.

The prisoner states to the Court, that he wishes to defer cross-examining until his defence. Major General Delamotte resumes the prosecution.

It prevented the combined attack, The eneniy were routed from Sewapoor, and it compelled them to move their families.
