Chapter 12-Alice's Evidence

'Here!' cried Alice, quite forgetting in the flurry of the moment how large she had grown in the last few minutes, and she jumped up in such a hurry that she tipped over the jury-box with the edge of her skirt, upsetting all the jurymen on to the heads of the crowd below, and there they lay sprawling about, reminding her very much of a globe of goldfish she had accidentally upset the week before.
“在这儿!”爱丽丝喊道,她完全忘了在刚才的混乱时刻,她已经长得很大了。她过于急促地站起来,竟弄得裙边掀动了陪审员席,把陪审员们翻倒在下面听众的头上,害得他们在人头上爬来爬去,这情景使爱丽丝想起一星期前她偶然打翻金鱼缸的事。

'Oh, I BEG your pardon!' she exclaimed in a tone of great dismay, and began picking them up again as quickly as she could, for the accident of the goldfish kept running in her head, and she had a vague sort of idea that they must be collected at once and put back into the jury-box, or they would die.
“啊,请大家原谅!”爱丽丝极其尴尬地说,一面尽快地把陪审员们扶回原位,因为对金鱼缸的事情的回忆还在她头脑回旋,使她隐约地意识到如果不立即把陪审员放回席位上,它们会死去的。

'The trial cannot proceed,' said the King in a very grave voice, 'until all the jurymen are back in their proper places-- ALL,' he repeated with great emphasis, looking hard at Alice as he said do.
这时,国王庄重地宣称:“审讯暂停,直至全体陪审员返回原位。”他说得那么使劲儿,眼睛严厉地盯着爱丽丝。

Alice looked at the jury-box, and saw that, in her haste, she had put the Lizard in head downwards, and the poor little thing was waving its tail about in a melancholy way, being quite unable to move. She soon got it out again, and put it right; 'not that it signifies much,' she said to herself; 'I should think it would be QUITE as much use in the trial one way up as the other.' 
爱丽丝看着陪审员席,发现由于自己的疏忽,竟将壁虎头朝下放上了。那个可怜的小东西无力动弹,只是滑稽地摇摆着尾巴。爱丽丝立即把它拾起来放正。爱丽丝想,“如果没有重大变故,壁虎还会同其它陪审员一样,发挥重大作用的。”

As soon as the jury had a little recovered fro m the shock of being upset, and their slates and pencils had been found and handed back to them, they set to work very diligently to write out a history of the accident, all except the Lizard, who seemed too much overcome to do anything but sit with its mouth open, gazing up into the roof of the court. 
等到陪审员们镇定下来,纸板和铅笔也都找到了以后,它们立即勤奋地工作起来了。首先是记下刚才事故的历史。只有壁虎除外,它已经精疲力尽,不能干任何事情了,只是张着嘴坐着,两眼无力地望着法庭的屋顶。

'What do you know about this business?' the King said to Alice.
国王开口了:“你对这个案子知道些什么?”

'Nothing,' said Alice.
“什么也不知道。”爱丽丝回答。

'Nothing WHATEVER?' persisted the King.
“任何事也不知道?”国王再问。

'Nothing whatever,' said Alice.
“任何事也不知道。”爱丽丝答。

'That's very important,' the King said, turning to the jury.
“这点很重要。”国王对陪审员们说。

They were just beginning to write this down on their slates, when the White Rabbit interrupted: 'UNimportant, your Majesty means, of course,' he said in a very respectful tone, but frowning and making faces at him as he spoke.
陪审员们正在把这些问答记在纸板上,白兔忽然插嘴说:“陛下的意思当然是不重要。”它用十分尊敬的口气,同时对国王挤眉弄眼的。
