enrich the island.
Thc revenue to-day is three hundred and
seventy-five thousand dollars.
The President and severel members of the
Cabinet will attend Thomas' lunera! at Troy.
The National Bank Committee argued fur?
ther against the Funding bill before thc Ways
and Means Committee. Boutwell was pre?
sent. A mass of evidence was presented tend?
ing to show that the banks could not operate
profitably on four and a half per cent, bonds.
Attorney-General Hoar argued to-day before
the Supremo Court iu favor of reopening thc
legal tender decision, which was made by one
majority with vacancies on the bench. Car?
lisle opposed, arguing they had nothing to do
with majorities, and that much trouble would
arise from such a review.
HOUSE.
The House, after a long argument for trans?
ferring thc property ofthe Freedmen's Bureau
to thc Educational Bureau, and acceptance
of the amendment that the money be expend?
ed under the direction of the President ol' the
United States, the motion to table was lost,
64;to 83. The morning hour expiring, the bill
went over.
Paine reported a resolution scating the
Texas members. Shanks objected to Connor,
and read certain expressions of disloyalty.
Butler read about Connor's cruelty to soldiers
while a Federal captain. Brooks made a point
of order that the House had nothing to do with
the previous private character of persons
elected. The chair overtuled the point. Fi?
nally, all thc members were seated. Their
names arc W. T. Clarke, J. C. Connor, E.
Degener, G. W. Whitmore.
The motion to refer the case of Connor, of
Texas, to thc Elections Committee elicited a
sparkling debate. Butler charged Connor
with, whipping liLs negro soldiers and being
diseased from Annapolis. Stevenson called
these charges outrageous and did not credit
them. He did not believe that any member of
the House had ever taken a ministe -of the
Gospel and chained him with negroes, or that
any member had carried away the treasure of
a whole city. [Laughter.] Connor, who was
allowed ten minutes, said that Butler had im?
pressed him with the conviction that Butler
had missed his calling, and would have made
a much better character as a low comedian.
The Speaker called Connor to order, when
Butler said: uOb, he don't know any better.'?
Shanks said Connor had not explained why he
?was turned out of the Naval Academy. _ Shanks
was called to order and begged the pardon of

sumed, after which the House adjourned..

THE MAYORALTY MUDDLE.
RICHMOND, March 31.
Judge Underwood to-day granted an injunc?
tion restraining Mayor Ellyson from acting as
Mayor. He also refused an appeal, on the
ground that thc injunction was temporary, to
continue only till thc next term. Ellyson's
counsel gave notice of their intention to diso?
bey the order of the court, in order to cause
thc arrest of Ellyson, and then bring his case
before the Supreme Conrt on a writ ot habeas
corpus. Thc Judge, in Iiis decision, declared
the Enabling act passed by the Legislature un?
constitutional, which decision affects nearly all
the officers of thc State.
The injunction granted this morning was is?
sued this afternoon to Ellyson, thc City Coun?
cil and the police, but they went on with
the city affairs as usual. Ct alioou issued a
proclamation this evening saying his police
force will bc promptly reorganized, and re?
questing Lie persons appointed by Ellyson to
retire to choir homes peacefully, that no fur?
ther breaches of the peace may occur. It is
supposed that when Ellyson holds court to?
morrow, the United States authorities will
arrest him, which is the manner ia which his
counsel hope by habeas corpus to get the case
before thc Snprcme Court. Ellysou's police
still have control ofthe city. >

The mails from Yokohama, Japan, bring a full
report or the proceedings o' the eourt of inquiry
held at the British cousnlate at that place on the

ces of and attendant upon" the recent fatal col?
lision of thc English steamer Bombay, belonging
to the Peninsular and Oriental Stearn Navigation
Company, ami thc United States war corvette
Oneida.
THE COURT.
The court consisted of five ra imbers, namely:
Jonn Frederic Lowdcr, the British Consul, presi?
dent; John Tlnklor, commander royal navy, and
Uavld Moore, stan" commander royal navy, both
on duty on board the British war steamer Ocean;

CAPTAIN EYRE PROTESTS.
Captain Eyre demanded to know if any evi?
dence thai, he or any oilier person would give
could hereafter be used lu any proceeding against
him, anti on being informed that such evideuee
could be used, he demanded that any specific
charge might bc made lu writing, and that he
might have thc assistance of Mr. Ilarnard us
counsel. Ile then formally protested against Hie
court entertaining any charges against him; and
also objected to lu jurisdiction. A debaie Men
ensued between Mr. Barnard, who was admitted
as counsel for Captain Eyre, and Minister De
Long, on the subject of thc* powers of Hie court,
thc former ln.-lsting that lt could only inquire Into
tue collision, and the latter that lt possessed the
power of punishing Captain Eyre if it was ascer?
tained that he was to blame for the disaster.
The court having decided what 1rs powers were.
Captain Eyre was sworn and gave his evidence..
TUE COLLISION.
Other witnesses followed, giving substantially
accounts agreeing with the telegraphed state?
ments on both sides ofthe question. Among the
witnesses may be mciitlonedJRoiiert B. Clements,
or the Royal navy, who boarded the Bombay
shortly after her arrival, as officer of the guard,
and who ?wears positively that Captain Eyre
said to him, "I have cut the quarter otfa Yankee
frigate; served her right; she crossed my bows
with a starboard helm." The chief evidence,
however, relating to the facts of the collision was
that given by thc commander of the Bombay and
by Master Isaac S. Yates, in charge or the"deck
of the Oneida, which, having but recently been
published in substance, need not bc reproduced
in detail. T"<? following is the
DECISION Ol' TUE COURT.
The president pronounced the following decis?
ion ofthe court:
The questions before this court are:
1. Was the injury sustained by the Peninsular
and Oriental Steamship Navigation Company's
ship Bombay brought about by the fault or the
commnuder, Mr. Eyre?
2. After the collision hud taken place between
the steamship Bombay and the United States cor?
vette Oneida, what was the conduct ol thc master
of thc former vessel?
Tho two statements of Captain Byre ami Lieu:
tenant Yates arc utterly Irreconcilable; and
though thc collision is accounted for by each or
them, lt certainly could never have occurred ir
both are correct, lt is. therefore, necessary to
look further, and see how far each is substantiat?
ed. The statement of Mr. Eyre ls burne ont in all
Its material points by the evidence of the pilot
and chief oilier, who were on the bridge willi
him. and also bv that of all the ofllcers of the
Bombay who are able to testily to Ute circum?
stances.
With regard to Mr. Yates' statement, however.
I he starb? int lookout manor tho Oneida affirms
that about fifteen minutes previous to the colli?
sion lu reported to Mr. Yates that, he saw a mast?
head light right ahead, and that as soon as he
could make out one or her side llirhts he reported
her green light between a h.ilf point and a point
on the Oneida's starboard bow. About a minute
or a minute and a half after that he reported Mic
steamer (Bombay) about four or live points on
her starboard bow and coining right for the
Oneida's green light; but at uo time did he see
the Bombay's red light before thc collision toi>k
place. The helmsman asserts that he heard the
Bombay reported three different limos hythe
lookout to the oltlecr of Hie watch-Hist, l?air a
point on thc starboard bow; secondly, a point
aud a hair on lils starboard bow, and thirdly, as
coming right for thc Oneida: that he received au
order "starboard." then -steady," and then to
?let the ship come on her course again,"
after th? second report had been made, and
that after the third report had been made Mr.
Yate?again told him to starboard-arter doing
which he saw thc Bombay's masthead light
about live points on the starboard side of the
fore-sail; that he kept his helm hard a starboard
until he heard an order given to port, and Hut as
he was ia thc actor obeying the order the two
ships caine iuto collision.' It will thus bc seen
th.it the statements of Mr. Yates, th? lookout
man. and the helmsman are more or loss con -
dieting: but lt may he gathered from them that,
when the Bombay's three lights should have been
seen by the lookout mau as well as by Mr. Yates,
she was about three points on tho Oneida's star?
board lin?-, about a mile distant ami porting her
helm. Mr. Yates states Unit at this moment he
gave the order "starboard," and then "hard a
starboard." If these orders had been promptly
Obcye I, thc court ls of opinion that the ships
could not have come inf) collision. Rut the state?
ment of Albert Rucaart, the helmsman, shows
that the Oneida's head was about southeast when
she si ruck-by which lt woad appear that she
had only co.nc up about three points lu three
minute.-", so that Mr. Yates' orders could not have
been promptly obeyed.
Hence lt ls impossible to account for the colli?
sion Ly the statements ?f Ute survivors of thc
Oneida, If these are un reservedly accepted.
We are of opinion that when Mr. Muldaur said
lo Mr. Vates that he could not go any further to
th* port or eastern shore, and ordered him tn re?
sume his course for fear of running on the Sara?
toga spit, lt? should-knowing thai lt was his duty
to get out of the way of an approaching vessel
on his starboard side-at once have brought the
Bombay un his port bow, and so opened out his
red light, instead of simply resuming his course.
That if. when a collision was seen to be immi?
nent, the same promptness hud been shown nv
the OneiHain porting her helm as shown by the
Bomb iv iu patting lier belia hard a starboard, lt
might uoos'uiv :iav? l?Oerl arrested; while had lt
occurred, v lt' effects would certainly have been
far less serious.
lt is shown by thc evidence or thc Oneida's of?
ficers that ar no tuno was the oneida's speed
slackened after t!;c Bombay came in sight, and
that although the Bombay was considered tobe
persistently breaking a rule of thc road by port?
ing, tho Oneida's helm was nevertheless kept a
starboard: aud thus thc judgment required tobe
exercised lu order to counteract the presumed
mismauagcuieiu of an approaching steamer was
not shown. These observations are not made as
a Judgment on thc management of the Oneida,
which i-> beyond the province of the court to con?
sider, but simply In order to insti;ute such a com?
parison as is necessary to show the grounds upon
which the court arrives at its conclusion.
If the stateiueuts or Mr. Eyre, his pilot and ofll?
cers uro to be believed, we Judge that he was
right In keeping on tue starboard side or the
channel, and that he acted perfectly aright in
porting bb) helm as soon ns he saw the oneida's
light on Hie port bow. Wc judge that he should
hav? s'aekeucd speed as soon aa he saw thc
Oneida's lights; that He acted rightly in stopping
his engines; that lie had uo time after stopping
to reverse them, and that he exercised a sound
Judgment in starboarding lils helm when he saw
thai a collision was imminent, and that thc
Oneida's helm waa kept to starboard.
Up on a comparison of the foregoing statements
we iliul I hat the damage which has been sustain?
ed by the Bombay is in no way attributable to
the default of her commander. Mr. Eyre.
As regards the second question which thc
court is called upon to decide, viz: the conduct
of Mr. Eyre after the collision hal taken place,
it may lie observed lliat it has nut beeu without
long "and serious delibera)lon among ourselves,
und a most careful consideration of all the evi?
dence adduced, that we luve arrived at a unani?
mous decision. We tlnd, from the evidence be?
fore us, ihat on a dark but starlight nicht, thc
24th of January last, the steamship Bombay,
i brough no fault of her commander, Mr. Eyre,
came into collision with thc United Statc3 cor
vettc Onejda in thc close vicinity or Saratoga
Spit, situated some icu miles riom Yokohama;
that thc effect of Hie collision on the Bombay was
comparatively slight; that guns were llred from
the Oneida as signals of distress lrom ten to Ii f
tcen minutes alter Hie collision took place; that
the reports or these guns were not heard nor the
hashes seen on board of the Bombay; that after
the collision theiactof thc Bombay having been
hailed from the Oneida was reported to Mr.
Evie; that Mr. Eyre only knew that some or the
upper works ol' the Oneida had been carried
away, and was unaware or the amouut or injury
sustained by her; that the Bombay was a mail
steamer, earn ing passengers and caren, and was
built in compartments, only one of which was re?
ported io him as making water fast; that thc
whole extent of the injury sustained by the Bom.
bav was not ascertained till the day following the
collision; that Immediately after the collision it
was not considered to lie serious, for had it been
so.it is natural to suppose that the knowledge
of thc pilot, would have been availed of, and thc
Bombay run on io Hie Saratoga spit: (hat, In our
opinion,m? danger to the Bombay, her passengers
or cargo was apprehended b v Mr. Erre: that from
thc q*ie?tlbiis he asked th- pilot* lie cvMcntly
thought that the Oneida might possibly have sus?
tained serious Injury; that he waited at Ute most
five minu?s after the collision to see if signals of
distress were made from the * neida; that after
his ship again proceeded he gave no orders that
a lookout should be kept in the direction of the
Oneida; that had he or any one else been keep?
ing a proper lookout the flashes of the Oneida's
guns must have been seen, though their reports
might uot have been heard.
Under all these circumstances lt becomes our
dutv to pronounce whether, In oar opinion, Mr.
Eyre was justi?ed in proceeding on his voyage
without waiting to ascertaiu whether the Oneida
was In need of assistance.
We recognize the face that he was placed In a
position of great difficulty and doubt, and in cir?
cumstances under which he was called upon to
decide promptly; butweregret to have to record
it ns our opinion that he acted hastily and in?
advisedly, in that, Instead of waiting and endeav?
oring to render assistance to the Oneida, he, with?
out having reasoa to believe that his own vessel
was in a perilous condition, proceeded on his
voyage.
This conduct constitutes In our opinion a
breach of the thirty-third section of the sixty
third chapter of the merchant Bhipping act,
amendment act of 1683, and we, therefore, feel
called upon to suspend Mr. Eyre's ccrtlUeate for
six calender mouths from this date.
Mr. Barnard theu rose, and, addressing the
court, said: "I have a duty to perform under the
circumstances, which I will do very shortlv, hav?
ing somewhat anticipated that I should be'callcd
on in the interests of my client. Captain Kyrc. to
respectfully appeal against your judgment t*j the
board or trade.
I Thc President. There's no appeal to the board
of trade.
Mr. Barnard then respectfully submitted that
lils Honor had misinterpreted thc meaning of thc
act, and that there had been no legal duty shown
by wu eh it appeared Incumbent upon Captain
Eyre to turn round and chase the other vessel,
and that thc court was not called upou to give au
opinion upon moral obligation.
The President. Let me tell you at, once. Mr.
Barnard, we do not a;k tor anybody's opinion,
but we are accountable to the board or trade
and the hoard or trade only-ror the decision
which has benn given. It is perfectly unneces?
sary (bryon to argue any more.
Thc court then rose.

The Kingstrcc Star or Wednesday goya :
it becomes our melancholy duty to announce
one of the most shocking and deplorable cases ol

he put his ann around it for a support, discharged
two chambers or his pistol, thc ball or one wound?

? lou of them, have enjoyed an amount of artistic
delight and Instruction which, perhaps, lt ls given
to few men to know. In this task, and In every
other 1 have ever undertaken as a faithful serrant
of the public, always imbued wlih;a souse or duty to
them, and always striving to do his best, I have
been uniformly "cheered by the readiest response,
the most, generous sympathy ar : the most stimm
lat lng support. Nevertheless, I have thought it
well at the flood-tide of your favor to retire upon
those older associations between us which date
from much further back than these, and hence?
forth to devote myself exclusively to the art that
first brought us together. Ladles and gentlemen,
in but two short weeks from this time 1 hope that
you may enter, In your own homes, ou a new
series of readings at which my assistance will be
indispensable; hat from these garish lights I van?
ish now r >r ever more, with one heartfelt, grate?
ful, respectful and affectionate farewell.
The Loudon News editorially says :
Last night Mr. Dickens gave the last public read?
ing of his last serios. Those who have neglected
the opportunity or hearing him will ucver have
another chance. At thc full flnudtlde or lils favor
lie mires upon those older associations between
himself and the public, which date much further
hack than his public readings, and henceforth lie
intends ld devote himself exclusively lo thc art
which Drat brought him and ourselves together.
We are quoting Mr. Dickens' own words. Ile
ended Hie evening with a short address, as pointed
andas vigorous as anything, which he ha3cvcr
either said or written, and which, perhaps, was
not Hie least interesting part of theeveulng's pro?
gramme. It ls seldom that a great writer ls also a
great orator, or that he has any power or moving
and <t waving a crowded audience. To this rule
Mr. Dickens, as indeed to most other known
rules, is a marked exception. Krom first to last
his career has boen an ulntcrrupted success. His
genius knows no difficulties, as it recognise uo
Taws. To those who have watched his career it
has b ;cn evident that that dramatic power which
lies latent In all writers of Notion has ripened
greatlr in Mr. Dickens since he llrst commenced
his readings. He has ended by becoming a con?
summate actor, and he has also, which ls no
small matter, become a finished speaker. Ills
public speeches ami addresses, although rew and
far bet ween, were always good. But the pract Ice
necessarily Involved in reading to large audiences
has Influenced Mr. Dickens' success as an orator
very distinctly. Hts Inst great speech was also,
In the opinion of ad who heard if, his best.
TUE PEELING IN CCRA.-The rumored pro?
posal (or Hie sale id Cuba, by Spain, to the United
Stales lins created a commotion among all classes
of thc population. The natives think it Ls only a
trick or Hie Spaniards, who believe it the liest
way to natter ibo American administration, with
the'hope to acquire peacefully the island In order
to prevent the American authorities from recog?
nizing thc Insurrectionists, which will positively
be a death blow on thc rule or Spain over her col?
onies in lids part or thc world, since it will
shorten the struggle which by all means is to cul?
minate in thc acquisition or the independence of
Cuba. The project meets au unconquerable oppo?
sition rrom thc Cubans, who say thc thirteen
American colonies would nut tolerate the idea uf
being sold to France in Hie Hine or thc revolution.
Spain, on tue other band, they add, cannot fell
two-thirds o Hie island which ia under the con?
trol or the insurgents. The Spanish people, too,
every one of whom considers himself a sovereign
of Cuba, will resist such a plan.

p?T CAUTION.-AUDACIOUS COUN?
TERFEIT !-The reputation which for many yearn
has attached to HOSTETTER'S STOMACH BIT?
TERS, as the standard Tonic of the age. and the
large demand for the article, not only in the Unit*
ed States but elsewhere, have provoked the cupid*
lty of the counterfeiting tribe, and lt bas been ex?
tensively simulated and imitated by unscrupu?
lous sharpers.
The most daring; counterfeit of said article
which has been attempted, has recently come to
our knowledge. The engraved steel label on bot?
tles containing the genuine bitters, with Its beau?
tiful vignette or St. George and the Dragon, its
shield, containing a warning against countei :lt
ers, and its note or hand ror "one cent" at the
foot, signed by our firm name, has been copied so
closely that the fraud can only be detected on a*
minute inspection. The dark label ls also well
counterfeited, and the wording on both t he imlta
tatlon and gemine are precisely the same, the dif?
ference being simply In the execution of the work;
that of the imitation being somewhat coarser
than tho genuine. Other counterfeits are on the
market, which are in all particulars the same as
described above, with the exception of a slight
difference in thc spelling of our name.
lu addition to the above, these counterfeiters
have gone so far in some instances as to place a
strip of paper over the cork and fasten to thc neck
of the bottle, on which ls a vignette, and other-g
wise printed to resemble the general appearance
of our proprietary v. S. Revenue stamp, but npon
Inspection will disclose the absence of the figure.
"4," and the words "four cents," also "United:
States Internal Revenue!" all of which, together
with additional wording, appear un our genuine
stamp. The public are, therefore, especially war:.
ed against these new counterfeits, and are advis- '
ed to purohase HOSTETTER'S STOMACH BIT?
TERS only of houses whose integrity ls above.-'
suspicion. The true specific ls sold in bottles ex- '
