It is universally conceded that this
has been'a' very dull session of the
Legislature'. But recent ly it has been
enlivened somewhat by an effort to
convict State Treasurer Cardozo of
malfeasance'in ofliCe, and bring about
his impeachment. lu a report of a
committee appointed to find out what
bonds had been fonded, under the
funding act, &c.,'seVious reflections
were made upon Mr. Cardozo. On
Tuesday of'th?d"Week- he suhmrtted" a
Vindication of hi's official conduct in
answer to the charges made by the
committee. Mr. Cardozo closes in
the following words ":
"In submitting- this reply, I say
distinctly, that Jf nsk*-no favor, nor
