Apropos to Array nows, It Is rumored that aoncrnl ord Is hero negotiating for tho repur chase of tho homostcad on Twolttu streot, bo twecn C and 1 streets, with n vlow to making our city his placo of residence Tho arbitrary rules of retirement win glvo him lelsuroto enjoy tho best nnd ripest yoars of his Itfo. nnd Iio could certainly 11ml no city In which ho has rooro friends nnd admirers thnn our own. Tho Hon. Mr. Convcrso lias rocolvod tho satisfactory nows that his son's wound Is a comparatively slight ono, although tho fact of Its being in tho oyo koepshlm anxious as to tho result. Tho young omccr was with tho regulars in tho fight with tho Apaches on tho 17th instant, nnd tho "comparison" of wounds comes In with Lloutonant Morgan, who com manded tho Indian scouts, and who has n fractured arm, a fractured rib, a chest wound and tho wound from tho eurgeon'skntfe, mado wuuo culling a uau away irom his uouy.

Iio says i " Tho boars havo mado a dcecont upon my camp In my absenco, and demolished tents and baggage I wish you could soo how thoroughly a party of bears can destroy things when thoy sot out to do so." Nowport has Just acquired, through tho War Department, two very charming girls, woll known In Baltlmoro and Washington 80 cloty tho Misses Do Itussoy, daughtors ot Colonel O. A.

Mrs. Turner wanted tho paper and ashes analyzed to boo it it contained poison. With considerable diniculty sho told tier story, which was to tho etfoct that Dr. Bur nett, alias Duford, had como and told hor that ho bad boon paid thrco dollars to kill hor hus band and that ho had ropented nnd wantod to bo paid for not doing It. In tho meantime, to protect Turner from harm, ho would burn some powder In tho house, which would havo tho magical effect ot keeping away murderers. Burnott proccodod to tako somo brown papor and set are to it and thon scatter somo red powdor Into tho names, which Mrs. Turner declared "sruolt llko bed-bug powder or somo such 'sterlous stuff an' skeered hor tearful."

A reporter of Tun onma lntorvlowod Comp troller Lawronco this afternoon on tbo Tribune matter, published In yostorday's Crane, with tho following result! Tho New York Tribune ot tho 21th stated on Information given to Its able correspondent that Messrs. Arthur and Brannegan, clerks (In tbo First comptroller's Office, ns tho Tribune nrtlclo says, "havo boon, to-u largo oxtent, em ployed In tho Comptroller's prlvata buslnoss."

Mr. rlold, "It Is asserted, has been engaged In copying tho manuscript ot tho Comptroller's now work on 'Equity Plead ings.' " Judgo LawrcncoBays ho novor wroto n work on Equity Pleadings, and that not ono pnge ot such a book or any othor book wrltton by him has over been coplod by this clerk or any other clerk ot tho Department except his official decisions. Bctoro hobocamo Comptrol ler ho had proparcd tho matorlal for two law books, and ho has not written a pago for olthor ot them slnco ho beenmo Comptroller, but ho says bowlllwrlto as many law books as bo chooses out ot ofllco hours, but will not employ clerks ot tho Dopartmont for tho purpose Tho 'Jrlbune nrtlclo says that "whon tho Comptroller was appointed ho possessed n largo and lucrntlvo practlco as a lawyor, and It Is understood that slnco thon ho has con tinued not only to Perform UN oillclnlliuUcn Satisfac torily, but to extend his prlvato practlco." Judgo Lawronco says much higher officials have closed up their law practlco In Important cases, and If tho Comptroller, ns stated, has performed his official duties satisfactorily," no ono ought to complain.

Tho Tribune nrtlclo says "Thoro has boon no complaint that tho comptroller has nog locted his official duties." Judgo Lawronco Bays ho hopos ho has do served this compliment ho will try to con tlnuo In tho samo way. Tho Tribune nrtlclo Bays tho Comptroller's "Opinions on questions of law havo not only been more frequent, but also moro voluminous than thoso of his prodeccssors." Judgo Lawrenco says ho has tried to mnko them usoful, and for this purposo has workod often dally thrco hours beyond ofllco hours, nnd only regrots that tho days aro not longer. Judgo Lawrenco was asknd It ho know who gavo out tho statemonts rcforrod to. Ho said ho thought he understood tho sourco anu tuo purposo. Wluit Sir. Arthur Bays.

John A. Walsh, tho champion llar,concludod his ovidonco In tho Blar-ltouto cases yostorday, and put tho enpstono upon his porjury in tho tamo nonchalant stylo In which ho built up his falso statement from tho foundation. A story conceived In falsity had to bo suslalnod by falsehood, and ho executod tho task with nshamcfaccdncss that provod him Devoid of All Honor and Decency. Uo is a romarkaMo character and ono ot his Ilk seldom flndB his way to tho witness stand, rorjurcrs havo appeared In court botoroand may hereafter, but It Is protty safo to assort that ho bos been and will bo found without n pcor In falBo swearing. Walsh Is a man of flno figure and prosonco, and to a Btrangor would provo very deceptlvo. Ho has tho out ward appcaranco nnd dross of n gentloman and In conversation isqultoontorlnlnlng and would readily pass for an honorablo man whoro his truo character was unknown. But his reputa tion for evil has becomo pretty generally understood, and Tliollrnud ofAimnlaN Is so plainly stamped upon him that oven tho common wnyfarlcr will know him hoioattor. Whllo swelling himself out with prcsumptous Innocenco and trying to hoodwink tho credu lous Into tho bolfot that ho Is a much-abused man, It linn, novorthelcss, boon npparont all along that ho was under n pressure nnd occu- ylng a forcod position. On tho witness stand to was n sight. By a strong will powor ho managed to control his nerves, but It was np pnrcnt;to overy witness that ho was battling against odds to kcop from giving nway. Ills faco would bluncb, then flush, and evon color to a purplo whon a quostlon was prossod trenching on dangerous ground, nnd ho would uen all manner ot ovaslon and nt no tlmo could a direct answer bo obtalnod from him where a contradiction might bo Involved. Tho examiner At no Time Could Catch Ills llyc, nnd hold It oven for a minute. Ho would glanco toward tho questioner nnd then direct his gazo elsewhere, and mostot tho tlmo keop his orb rolling nnd directed toward tho colllug, and It Is safo to say that ho knows tho number ot plaster holes nnd fly specks on tho wall around and nbovo his hoad. Ho did not want to look at his Interrogator and would not. Whon cornered with a quostlon ho would boat about until Anally, bolng unablo to answer, fall back upon tho record, which, ho claimed, would show. Doubtless It will, and tor moro thnn ho prefers to havo tho public, know. Ho Is tho boss witness ot tho day and hereafter should Let Himself Out to I.lo liy Contract. No matter how great It may bo, ho will bo ablo to All Iho bill. TniCKS OF TRAMPS Tlntnrtcd by tlio District C'oinuils. sloncrs.
