This afternoon the Mayor sent Into Councils this veto message: Gentlemen: 1 resrret, from my great desire to see a new bridge constructed over the river Sohnylfclll at Falrrnount at thn earliest possible moment, that I find myself obliged to return the resolution entitle! "Resolution relative to the proposals for erecting Falrrnount Bridge," wlthont my approval. The language of the resolution seems to be vagae and ambiguous. Although it Is restricted to direct ing the City Solicitor to prepare contract with parties for the con'tructlon of the several portions of the Lew bridge at the locality mentioned, and to report the tame, with the names of sureties offered. to the Chambers, it obviously promises that if the contracts are In proper form ana the sureties satis factory, Councils will have such contracts executed and the city bound for the amount of expenditure invoiven. On examination of the minutes and proceedings of Councils, I cannot And that any sufficient appro priation Das Deen niacin 10 meet tne outlay required under such contracts. The act of Assembly of April 21, lb.v, expressly provides "that no debt or con tract hi rial tcr incurred or made shall be binding upon the city of Philadelphia unless authorized bjr law or ordinance, and au appropriation suillcient to pay the same be previously made by Counclla." Anil the Supreme Court, in the case of Bladen against the city or Philadelphia, which is to be found in the tenti volume of P. K Smith's Reports, page 464, has recognized the force Of this act, and it there decided mat a contract maue in advance 01 an appropriation Is not binding on the city of Philadelphia, the dis tinguished Judge who delivered the opinion of the Court in that case (having reference to this act of lbbS) saying: "Had the statute enacted express that without such appropriation the contract would be void and no debt incurred, it could not, as far as tbe liability of the city is concerned, have been more mandatory or imperative than It is." A contract now made under the provisions of the resolution which I now return would, therefore, be Invalid, and so plainly did this objection present itself to my mind on ray first reading of your joint resolution that I have forborne uny investigation ot tbe facts in connection with the matter. very respectfully, Daniel m. Fox, Mayor of Philadelphia. The resolution in question authorizes the City Solicitor to prepare contracts with J. W. Murphy for the main and Thirty-second street bridge superstructure and the iron work of approaches; with J. J. Kennedy for tbe graduation, masonry, curbing-, and paving, and with the Pennsylvania Kailroad Company for the erection of all work westward ot retaining wall beyond thirtieth street, as per proposals lor erecting a bridge over the river Schuylkill at Falrrnount." BANE ROBBERS. How a Plan was T.ald to Capture Them How It aid not Work. Last evening Superintendent Fracker. of the North Pennsylvania Railroad, sent word to Lieutenant Pritcbard, ot the Eleventh district, that six burglars had gone np the road that afternoon, and he had information leading to tbe belief that they intended to "crack" a bank. As there were no more out-tralns that evening, the lieutenant sent omcers to watcn the down- trains that arrived, in the hope that the depreda tors might be ensnared upon their return. Two trains came in, but brought no vestige of the burglars. The Lieutenant, at 2 o'clock this Officers Lukens and Ryble up the road, and they laid off a few moments to inspect the down- train tnen at forti Washington, but found no robbers. They continued their journey np to ansaaie, ana learned mat tne roooers nad made an attempt upon the Lansdale Bank, but that the citizens, informed by a message from the c Superintendent, had surrounded the Institution upon which the depredators were so industriously working, with the intention of cutting off escape and nagging tne wnoie. uniortunateiy ior these strategic lellows, their zeal was too much for them, and one of tbem could not restrain firing off a gun. The shot was disastrous In its effects; it alarmed the game, and what is worse, as the injured man says, some portions lodged in the body of one of their own party. A scene of confusion ensued, and there were shouts of "Don't shoot! Don't shoot! You will hit us!" While this interesting drama was in progress the wary robbers had ingeniously drawn off. They made their way to a farmer's stable, stole a team, rode over to a neighboring station on the New York Railroad, and got away on the next train. DOMESTIC ENTANGLEMENTS.

More of the Woodhull-Clafllu Case. A man about 45 years old, and rather poorly dressed, called at French's Hotel late on Tues day night and asked for a room. Nothing was seen or heard of him after entering his room until yesterday, when one of the chambermaids having tried the door several times, and finding It locked, finally procured a step-Udder, climbed np, looked through tbe transom, and saw the occupant lying on the floor, in his night cloth ing, dead, lie had attempted, apparently, to rise from his bed, and, being taken suddenly ill, had fallen and struck his head against the door, nearly forcing out one of the panels. From a superficial examination the physician thought that death resulted from natural causes. Tbe body was sent to the Morgue, and a post-mortem examination will be made to-day. The only property found belonging to the de ceased was a small satchel, containing a wallet In which were $2-50, some medical prescrip tions, and an envelope directed to ''Dr. B. F. Sparr, No. 15 East Thirty-eighth street." There was a writ of ejectment directed against Wood hall & Clafiln, directing them to vacate the premises No. 15 East Thirty-eighth street on or before a certain date. An unsigned letter, written in pencil, was directed to "Vlckey, Col., and Tenney included," and referred to certain family matters, incidentally men tioning the ejectment writ, expressing the belief that tbe agent dare not put them out, and suggesting thct something ought to be done for "poor old mother, pa, and Polly." There is no question but that the de ceased Is a brother-in-law of the notorious woman-brokers, and is the Dr. Sparr who was characterized as a drone by Miss Tennie daring the recent legal proceeding, at Essex Market Police Court, and for whose support and that of his wife she and her sister, Mrs. Woodhull, some time ago ref need longer to contribute. if.
