One of our most esteemed contributors,
J. W. Xiehiu, E-q , takes up a very large
c share of oar space this morning with sn
original Christmas story, written expressly
for The Times, and which will positively
cot appear in any other paper.
In a reocDt lecture Wendell Phillips de
clared that -Vast, tbe artist, caricatured
John Brown at the time of the Harper's
Ferry raid in a most heartless manner in
Hartier's Weekly, "mating him either
devilishly ugly or ridiculous." To this
Harper's Weekly responds with the state
ment that "Mr. .Nasi was not then contri
buting to this paper, and all the illustra
tions of the capture and trial of John
Brow were engraved from sketches by
Porte Crayon" (Colonel Strother), who
drew the portrait of the rugred old nun
just as he appeared without the least in
tention of caricature."

Washington. D. C, Dec 23. The com
niusion appointed to codify existing laws
relating to the public land system m the
West is finishing its work as rapidly as
possible. The work has been divided among
sub committees of the commission in order
to facilitate the classification of materials
he scope of the work has necessarily been
Urge, embracing a thorough examination
into, the laws relating to the homesteads
mining claims, irrigation, pasturage, tim
ber protection, and the numerous other in
fstasaTa fnprflinr t el... . a a
tions affecting the immense area of the
Mississippi river. The Commission ha.
visited all of these Western States and
Territories, and has taken a vast amount of
testimony by lawyers, farmers and miners
touching their social interests.
THE WOSK HAS BEEN DIVIDED
into three parts, namely: the classifies
tion of existing laws relating f public
lards; the classification and survey ot
public landf; and th-ir recommt.dation to
Congress of such a method of dHpnsinof

them up most rapidlvto cultivation. Tnere
are now move than 4,000 laws on the Ut
ute book relating to public land. These
mu-t be examined fo- the purpose of con
dersin? them into a manageable form by
stnkine out thore which are obsolete and
consolidating others where tbe object to b
attained is tbe same. Thi part of the
work is far the most important, an.I the
most onerous, and the members of the
Commission are encased upon it now, hold
ing daily sessions. They have until July
next to complete thf work, bit they are
sufficiently advanced in it to be able in a
few months to make certain recomenda

TbeStettaucrs, who broke up themselves
and tried to help others to do the same not
long ago. were in the County Court on Sat
urday. Tne hour was 'J o'clock, and yet
there waa a large number of persons in
court at that time. There were about a
dozen attorneys in court. There was a
good deal of time wasted by the prelimi
naries. At last Charles Stettaur was
sworn. There was considerable discussion
as to whether the examination should be
open or secret. When the defense hsd
stewed over the sff ir for some tim. the
court ordered the case set for hearing at 9
o'clock this morning.
A sworn petition was filed Saturday in
tbe case of the creditor..' bill of H B. Clsf
lin & Co. against the Stettauers, Eina'ein
and Levi Ro-enfeld. It was aektd that the
petitioners, Henry B. Mather and Amory
A. Lawrence, be made parties defendant,
and have leave to file a cross-bill. Leave
wasuran'ed by Judge Birnum The pith
oi tne petition, sworn to by franklin jj.
Gregory, merchant of New York, is that
the creditors' bill is founded upon a judg.
ment made by the confession of Stettauers
& Einstein in favor of Cliflin & Co , and
then the bill filed to set aside tbe assign
ment so as to make Clafltn'a judgment for
tbe $706,000 a first lien on a million cf
dollars of money aod effects in Bosenfeld's
hands as assignee, and this is all done in
furtherance of a fraudulent and colluriye
scheme to injure the other creditors, and
the collusion is between Stettauers, Ein
stein. Bosenfeld and Claflia fc Co. No
movements can now be takn in these two
eases without notice to the creditors of
Stettauer Bros. & Co.
