A brief resume of the origin, rise and
downfall of the fa sous i may be
ded. It bad itsrin n the
of Supervisors, and was as is the
nature of a ring, without distinction of
party in its immediate composition. r
Among its leading spirits were Wm. M.
Supervisor, State Senator and
ioner of Public Works; Rich
j olly, Comptroller; County
UdpOJiWa*oh t Woodward, the clerk
f he~ ulervisors; Park Commis
seoners Sweeny and Fields. Ac
cording to Tweed , A. Oakey Hall,
elected Mayor by the ring, which was
organised oombletely on January 1,
1869, When he became Mayor, Mr. C.on
nolly having been two years Comptrol
ler. Its most direct manner of operating
was by a corrupt agreement with con
tractors having bills against the city to
have these bills "raised" enormously
and then audited, the thieves taking the
enormous addition and paying the con
tractor unless he was for some reason
favored only, his just claim. Audit was
refused these bills unless they were so
raised. In 1870 the supervisors had
passed upon some $10,000,000 of these
fraudulent bills, when the Republican
majority in the Legislature, which
had created the board and given it
its opportunities, gave way to a Demo
cratic majority of one in the Senate and
seven in the Assembly. Besides the
danger of a revelation of its vast frauds,
the ring had in prospect some $18,000,
000 more of bills, nearly all fraudulent.
At this time the Young Democracy was
busy drafting a new charter providing
for spring elections and a city govern
ment less enthralled by Albany legisla
tion. But suddenly Tweed, who was at
the time in the State Senate, sprung-his
famous charter, which was pushed for
ward with such tremendous haste that
suspicion was directed against those ,
active in its support. It was opposed a
before Tweed's Senate committee by K
Mr. Tilden and others, but was passed E
by the House in the latter days of March, E
1870, by a vote of 96 to 18 in the House, T
and 30 to 2 in the Senate. A
The powers conferred were unparal
leled, and the ring made good use of
their time. On May 5 was that notable I
meeting of the Board of Special Audit, ai
Tweed, Hall' and Connolly, whereat Ic
$6,312,500 was ordered paid out, of a
which the city scarcely owed ten per
cent. Tweed, as it was afterwards v
shown, got twenty-four per cent., and ai
others appropriate lesser amounts. The a
exposure of the ring's accounts came in B
July, 1871. Connolly was the first to de- ml
sert the ring, putting himself, the Sep- .
tember following, into the hands of Mr. n
Tilden and Mr. Havemeyer, and, on their
urgent pressure, appointing Mr. Green °
his deputy and acting comptroller. Mr. a
Tilden, Mr. O'Conor and others were ii
now in active consultation about the le
gal steps to be taken. How the proof ti
was obtained from the Broadway Bank 0
accounts, how it was decided that the
State should bring the suits, Tweed's
varied history since they were begun, a
the flight of Connolly, Fields, Wood- c
ward and Sweeney, Sweeney's return, a
the Woodward compromise, the pro
posed Tweed compromise now under
discussion, and other details, are too
numerous to need recounting. t
Three of Ilis Principal Ranees Burned a
Alive. 4
The Antrita Bazar Patrika, a native h
India paper, furnishes the following n
account of the death of Sir Jung Baha- a
door, and the funeral ceremony which n
followed: "The 25th of February being
Hoolee Day (Govind Dwadasee), he a
went to bathe at Bagonuttee; he entered P
the river before sunrise for that purpose ti
in the highest spirits, and after perform- ti
ing his ablutions he sat on the bank to e
perform poojah. Soon after he was no- ii
ticed to be motionless. On his followers t1
approaching him they found that life 0
was extinct. An express was sent 0
to the capital, and orders arrived a
to postpone the funeral rites to r
March 1. The three principal Ra- o
nees, his brother and son, arrived, n
and the Ranees expressed their desire t
to sacrifice themselves. The brother
tried to dissuade them, but he failed,
and the funeral pyre was prepared with
sandal-wood rosin and a large quantity
of ghee. When the arrangements had
been made the ladies bathed, performed t
poojah, and made presents to the Brah
mine. The next step was they took c
measures for the government of the
country and to maintain peace; then
general directions were given to the
brother-in-law. Their last act was to t
release some prisoners. They then t
entered the funeral pyre quite uncon
cernedly, muttering prayers. The
corpse was then laid on its back, and the t
eldest Ranee took his head in her lap
and the two others took the feet. They
were then surrounded by odorous com
bustibles, and the Ranees gazed upon
the features of their husband as if for- 1
getful of every other consideration.
The fire was then applied by his son, and
all was over in a few minutes.
The Porte Advised to seek the Medlation I
of the United States.
It is rumored that Mr. Layard, the
British embassador to Turkey, has ad
vised the Porte to seek the mediation of
the United States in the Montenegrin
complication. We had better keep out
of Turaey's business. The Montenegrins
want some pasture land in Herzegovina
for their cattle, that is all, and as they
are in a fair way of capturing it, they
might as well be allowed to do it.
England Recalling her Offleers.
Several prominent British army offi
cers in Canada were ordered last week
to join their regiments immediately in
England. The order is thought to mean
