Ntw York. April 8. Tlio peculiar
vtitti which enterprises of publio importance
were looked upon by the Into lamented
U in tho present
condition of the excavations at Hell Gate.
For eight years the work of removing the
rock obstructions in the chnnnel at Hell
Onto htisi been pushed forward unceasingly,
until there ai o now liO,'J.'U feet of tunneling
and lii,;!82 three-inch holes
drilled in tho rock, ready for
the final blast. The amount of money
expended up to January 511 is $7(S0,flo. It
was expected that in October next tho final
blast would be made and that the obstructions
would be cleared away entirely, but,
owing to tho failure of tho Into Congress to
appropriate money to enrry on the work,
the blast cannot bo fired beforo October,
18&5. In the meantime, in order to preserve
tho work already done, water must
be pumped out of tho submarine tunnels at
tho rate of one thousand gallons a minuto
and nt ii total cost of 530,000 for the coming
two yenrs. While the engineers are thus
waiting for money to complete their work
incalculable damage will be done. It
eeems just a little siugtilnr that after appropriating
money for tho work for eight
consecutive years Congress should fail at
the lust hour.

Nkw York, April 8. Tho "World publishes

of stealing $50,000 in gold from a vault in
Panama. Tho money was sont by this

nnd men of tho Pnoific licet.
Thcso seven Americans wcro arrested

" Our cell is sin ply a dungeon
with two narrow slits a few inches wide
above tho floor. The lloor is earth only,
unit the walls are very dump. The door of
this abodo of misery faces on the iunlii
hull. Past it all the human refuse from the
convicts in adjoining corridors is carried to
bo thrown into the mui. Adjoining the
prison is a soldiers' barracks, the drain
IVoin which piixnes undor our cell or dungeon.
Our cell is tilled with tho vilct
odors by day and by night."
The prisoners then protest their innocence,
nnd furnish facts lo prove it. One
of them, Stewart, of this city, wu.i in
part of the country when tho robbery
occurred. Continuing, they say:
" 1'ioni day to day we have been promised
a hearing, und from day to day none

assures us that he is powerless, nnd he
has repeatedly said that ho awaits instructions
from Washington City. Wo appeal
to our fellow citizens in the United

a trial. Wo again assert our entire innocence,
and only nsk for justice. We
