CITY ELECTION FRAUDS.
Court of General Sessions. Before bis Honor the Recorder. FIFTH DAT. The trial of William Hurra/, Hugh Mooney and Wil liam Turner, as a Board of Inspectors, for having made a false and illegal return of the number of votes polled at the late general election held in the First district of the Twentieth ward, was continued to-day, and the same course produced on the part of the prosecution?that is, te show by a greater number of persons than recorded in the returns that the defendants had made a false and fraudulent return of the votes cast for Camming II. Tucker, for Alderman. Some fourteen or fifteen wit nesses were examined, coroboratlng the testimony of those witnesses examined previously. A deposition was read by the consent of all parties, made by Anthony Baptiate, foreman in the employment of Casper C. Childs. printer, of Nassau street, tending to show tbnt the day before the election a man came to the office, (Holmes, the clerk of the polls,) aud said he wanted seme election tickets for Alderman altered. Ho then produced a Cumming U. Tucker ticket, and said he wanted all but C. Tucker stricken out, and then seventy-five of the altered tickets, making thein C. Tucker tickets, printed, aud that the said Holmes would call for them. ? Casper C. Childs corroborated the testimony of Mr. Baptists, and furthermore deposed that he delivered the tickets as printed, at the request of the clerk of the polls. Counsel for the defence wanted then to know why Holmes should not be produced by the prosecution, as they seemed to attach so much importance to his do ings. Mr. Hall said he would place Justice Stewart upon the stand for that purpose. Justice Stewart, upon being sworn, deposed that Holmes was arrested and committed to prison by him, but after wards discharged. Witness, from the character of his testimony, thought that he was not a fit witness either (or the prosecution or the defence, and on that account, and for other good reasons, he thought fit to discharge bhn. Here the Court adjourned for the day. United States Circuit Court. Before Hon. Judge Notts.

Mat 17.?Forgery in the Seeond Decree.?Bridget Mur phy, the alleged accomplice of Philip McArcile, convicted yesterday of having passed several counterfeit $10 bills on the Cranston Bank, of Rhode Island, was then placed at the bar, charged with having passed a number of the aame counterfeits. The first witness called for the prosecution was Louis Opeuheiro. who deposed that he kept a store in Division ?treet, and that one of the girls in his store sold the de fendant some millinery goods, and received for the same a ten dollar bill on the Cranston Bank, of Rhode Island, which afterwards proved to ho a counterfeit. Witness went up to Jefferson market to seo if he could identify the prisoner, as he bad seen in the morning papers that peraons were arrested charged with passing counterfeit bills on the Cranston Bunk. Samuel Underhlll, clerk of Half Brothors, grocers, de posed that he received ono of the counterfeits for one pound of tea and two pounds of coffee. The prisoner was the person who passed the bill upon him; a woman somewhat taller than the prisoner was along with her, but he could not cay positively who it was. The next day witness's employer seeing a notice In the Hskald of the arrest of the counterfeiters, he was sent up to Jeffer son market, where ho identified the prisoner as the one who had passed the counterfeit bill on the day previous. Offlcer Elder, attached to the police court at Jefferson Market, deposed?That be, along with Lieut. Dunn and j several of the Twentieth ward police, went to a house in ? Fifty-fourth steeet, near Fourth avenue: when they ar rived they saw a woman running into the house; the po Mce then entered the house and found there Mc.Vrdle, the prisoner, and a woman named Fiita Flynn; witness searched McArdle. and while so doing he threw some thing Into the stove; witness snatched the articles Trom , the stove, ana found them to be remnants of the ten I dollar bills on the Cranston Bank of Rhode bland; all the bimates were arrested and taken to tho Nineteenth ward station house; some tea, coffee, new shoes, a spade, trowel, and several articles of dry goods, were found in the houee. 4 Counsel for the defence allowed that the bills were counterfeit, but contended that the prisoner had nothing to de with passing them. He railed witnesses to prove f. tUbl and the good character of the prisoner. The counsel on both sides summed up the evidence at ?one length, when the Court charged the jury, who, ar ter due deliberation, cam? into court and said they could not agree upon a verdict. _ .. , , Grand Larteny -Frederick 8. Kocht. a workman in the employ of Andrew C. Benedick. No. 28 Bowery, pleaded guilly to stealing $1,000 worth of gold watches. The prisoner was one of the very best workmen in the employ of Mr. Benedict, and enjoyed his fullest confi dence and respect. He appeared very penitent, and was moved to tears when the Court sentenced him to two Tears imprisonment in the State prison. forging in the Staond Degree?William Mulley was tried upon a charge of having had In hi s poesession seve nU counterfeit bills on the Cranston Bank of Rhode iSnd.

Mat 17 Christian Schmitt vs. Henry Edttain ?Action to recover $868 01, which the plaintiff declared he had ?sa M lap expenses in a certain suit he bad been in duced to bring against one Adam Keln in consequence of the fraud and misrepresentations of tbe defendant. In 18(1 it seemed that the defendant held Kein's note for 9SOO, which he sold to plaintiff. When the case f?w re m very on the note was tried, It appeared that the note had been paid before the transfer, and the verdict was therefore rendered for the defendant. The coetsi and other charge* in bringing this action amounted to $358 SI. The defence now set np was that at the time of the transfer of the note It was thought good, that no rrand was intended, and that defendant never made any pro mise to pay costs or law expenses. The Court in its charges, said that if there was any fraud in the trans fer of the note, and if any inducement was held out to plaintiff, the promise made to pay the expensea would not be necessary to enable the plaintiff to recover.

On the presentation of a paper respecting alterations in an engine house in the Seventh ward, some discussion took plrco on referring the matter, in tho course of which Alderman Mott and Alderman Howard indulged in a few persoualitiea. SALARY or COMMISSIONER OF STREETS AND LAMPS. A resolution of the Councllmen to raise the salary o ' the Commissioner of Ftreeta and Lamps from 51,501 per annum to 52,500 to take effect from the 1st of April 1854, was referred to Committee on Salaries and Offices TDK MUSS PAVEMENT IN TIIE BOWERY. Document No. 32 was, after some discussion and nu merous divisions,"taken up relative to the reports of the Committee on Streets, (long since published,) respecting the pavement of the Bowery with the ltuss & Itoid pavement. The minority report was in favor of accept ing the surrender of the contract, but the majority re port was in favor of releasing the contractors from all claims and demands made of them under the contract. Alderman Hunt moved the adoption of tho minority report. Alderman Mott spoke at some length against the Russ & Reidcontract as made with the previous Common Council, and was oppesed to a concurrence with the Board or Conncilmen. IIo strongly fuvwred tho mea sures adopted by Comptroller Flagg, and urged a confir mation of tho reloase of tho contract. Ho went Into a history of this matter, but as the particulars h ivo been previously published by us, no further notico of them is necessary. Alderman Lord also spoke on the same side. Ho con sidered that to concur with the other Board would have the effect of forcing a contract on tax payers that they did not want. He contended that it was illegal, and that the interest of the city would be promoted by confirm ing the surrender of the contract. Alderman Voorihb contended for the same, and sus tained the Comptroller. Alderman Heiikick condemned the action of the Comp troller, and was in favor of continuing the contract with Russ & Reid. He contended that tho contract was ex torted from the contractors by the Comptroller, and was in favor of leaving it for the action of the courts. Alderman Blunt, at P. M., wanted to take a recess for half an hour, which motion was lost. Alderman Blunt then spoke against the contract, and wished to have the surrender accepted. Alderman Howard apoke In favor of the Russ k Reid pavement as the best, not only in this country, but bet ter than any that has been in use in Europe. He alluded to that which had been already laid down, and which could not be surpassed for durability. He did not know Russ & Reid?he had not been spoken to by them in a " certain way " as other members of this Board no doubt had. (Laughter.) Yet he was constrained, by the de sire of his constituents, and his own impression of its benefits, to vote for it. After some further discussion, the matter was post poned at half past nine o'clock, till Friday evening, to which time the Board adjourned. HOARD OF OOtTNCTI.MEV. Tho Board met last evening?Edwin J.

By Councilman Moniuhan?Whereas the N*w York Herald's contract has expired with the Corporation for the publishing the proceedings of this board, and Mr. Bennett has given uotice that he will publish the pro ceedings of the Corporation at the same rates he pub lishes the usual advertisements of his patrons? Therefore, Resolved, That the New Yopk II*raid be hereby appointed one of the papers to publish the pro ceedings of this board, at the usual advertising prices. Mr. Kennedy moved for an indefinite postponement. Mr. Rnro hoped not. Mr. Hodgrinson hoped the resolution would be adopt ed. His ideas about printing the proceedings of tho Corporation were, that those papers that had a Urge circulation should be paid just in proportion to the number of their subscribers and thp character of the paper, and not to put the Hirals on a footing with those papers whose circulation did not amount to anything. The charter of 1853 said, as It did other silly things, that the advertising should be given to the lowest bidder. Now be thought that was not the right or most economical way of doing the business. The only true way of paying for their advertUementi was to pay the papers according to their circuUtion. Mr. PmcKNET asked if the resolution to indefinitely postpone would not be put. Chairman? I understand it has been withdrawn. Mr. ITncknhy?Then I second the motion of the gentle man of the Ninth, to indefinitely postpone. The question being pat, was lost. Mr. Reed moved to refer It to the Committee on Print iog. Carried.

By Councilman Gannon?That Trinity placg be lighted with gas. By Councilman Coom?That Tenth and Nineteenth streets be repaired.

Manly, againtt the New York Union Inturamee Company.?Thit was an action on a policy of insurance effected with the defendants, for ?1,000 on chemical works at Green Point, near Williamsburg, and which were destroyed by fire on 20th Pec. 1852, by which Mr. Manly sustained a loss to the amount of $4,000. The company refused to pay the claim to him, and he assigned it to Mr. Schlosier. For the defence it was contended thst the loss was orer esti mated, and that the assignment was made in contrsven lion to an express clause in the policy, which prohibits it except by the consent of tba company. Verdict for the plaintiff for the amount, with interest, $1,077 77, besides costs. Iloboken Intelligence. We have often heard of a tempest in a teapot, but the finest illustration of the saying is illustrated by a tre mendous excitement now raging in that growing little place, Hoboken, concerning the Maine liquor law. Pome time tgo some of the excessively pious people desired to 'ax the inhabitants to the amount of twenty thousand dollars for the purpose of building a school house. The Eod people who were to pay this tax favored the Idea of .ring a school bouse in their midst, but twsnty thou sand dollars was a heavy tax, tbev thought. And there was great commotion and great discussion between the two parties. In this dilemma the Stevens family, the CI laudhoMers in Hob' ken, offered to bnild the school le at their own expense and present It to the town. The Stevenses represent the liberal portion of the commu nity, and, singular to say, the gifted citiiens on the other side refused to accept the offer, and the reason of their refusal is found in tba fact that they had.in direct Imita tlon of the corporation of New York,parcelled and peddled out the contracts for doing the work among their particu lar filends , five thousand dollars for brown cut stone to one man, Btc thousand for carpenter work toanotber.and ? th? school honse matters came to a stand still, and the prions people were highly Indignant. Some of the hotel keepers had objected to the lax, and the wrath of the I hariaees descended upon their heads. In consequence, they have procured indictment* against a number of respectable nemons who furnish refreshments _ 4?wi of persons who cross from this ciiy to Ifobokon for a mouthful of fresh air on Sundays and week days. The hotel keepers have been I indicted under the law of Jersey, which prohibits the sale of liquors on Bundav. One of the boat of the hotels? the Hotel Napoleon?kept on tho best French plan has been indicted for furnishings few glassoa of Bor deaux at one of their capital dinners, given on San day. Several other houses in Hoboken, which arc well kept and quiet, the police having broken np the rowdy 1 gang* which formerly disgraced the place, or* included in the indictments. The existence of several of tncae ? hotels depends upon the issue. The trials will take place on Friday, at the Bergen Court Honse, and the affair cre ates the greatest excitement. Great preparations are being made on both sides, and a most interesting and t amusing tempest In a tea pot U raging. If the respects hi# hotels are conquered and shut up, It will inflict a last ing lnjurp upon Hoboken. Board of Education. The Boerd mot last evening?Abraham V.

MO.VKY MARKET. Wcd.vk-tiay, May17?6 P.M. The stock market lias taken just the course we antici pated. The improvement has been but temporary. At the first board to-day, Illinois Central Railroad fell otT % per cent; Nicaragua Transit, %; Pennsylvania Coal, %; Parker Vein, 14; Cumberland Coal, %; Crystal Palace, 6; New York Central Railroad, X; Cleveland and Toleio Railroad, %; Erie Railroad, 1; Harlem Railroad, J4; Read ing Railroad, %. Michigan Central Railroad advanced '-i per cent. The sales ware large, and principally for cash. New York Central Railroad steadily declined, from the opening to the close. A good many small lots were offered, and there is quite a disposition to sell short. During the recent appreciation a large quantity of stock was taken up by capitalists, more, however, for a profit than for an investment. The advance since was sufficient to give purchasers a fair margin, and we have no doubt many realized. It made a good operation to buy at 102 and sell at 105 per cent, when the turn was made in two to three days. In Erie Railroad there was considerable activity, and lower prices ruled. No one seems to believe for a moment that Erie Railroad can be sustained at any thing like present prices. Its finances are becoming every day more deeply and hopelessly embarrassed, and the prthabillty is that the company will not for a long time, perhaps years, declare another dividend. It has ever been our opinion that the company never yet earned the dividends declared, and that every one paid has been partially taken from, or rather added to, the capital. There is no doubt about this, and it is getting to be pretty generally believed. That the com pany is thoroughly bankrupt is also true, and it would be pretty difficult to fix the real value of the stock. It is far below prices now current. A consistent bear in Erie eould not help making a great deal of money. There are parties in Wall street who will follow this stock down to the lowest depth. It may be a matter of time, much longer than appears probable at present; but we do not see how the company can continue for any length of time, under the existing system of manage ment. The last dividend was paid out of borrowed money, and it was paid solely for the purpose of sus taining the company's credit a while longer. The mo ment the dividends stop there is an end to the issue of new loans, and a complete expose of the rottenness of the concern would soon follow. This 1s to be avoided as long as possible,and if pretty sharp financiering will put off the day of reckoning it will not be wanting. Reading Rail road appears to be steadier than the other leading railroad stocks on the list. It Is sustained by a Philadelphia infl u ence, which Is of great service in these fluctuating times. The ooal stocks more up and down with the other fancies, and r*obably will touch lower points. There is no desire on the part of outsiders to touch any security in Wail street. Capitalists do not wish to involve themselves in any scheme, any new enterprise, of any name or nature, and we hope they will adhere to this determination. By carefully avoiding all new engagements and closing up gradually those outstanding, we shall acquire a strength in our financial and commercial affairs that will be of the utmost service, as the great political questions which are now agitating both the old and the new world, are more fully developed. It is the time to make every thing connected with business affairs snug, and keep them so. The steamship Africa, from this port for Liverpool to day, carried out $368,064 in specie. The Rank of Albany has declared a semi-annnal divi dend of fonr per cent; the Lowell Machine Shop Com pany, eight per eent.

The annual meeting of the Portsmouth and Concord Railroad Company was lit Id at Portsmouth, N. H., on Wednesday last. The annual report states that the whole cost of the road and equipment, to tho 1st of May, was (1,075,575 50, including (35,817 93 discount on mort gage bonds. Tho road was opened to Concord on the 18th of August, 1862. The balance between the ezpeuse of running tho road from the time when it was first opened, to intermediate places, and its income, up to September 1, 1852, was carried to account of construction. From September 1, 1852, to May 1,1851, the income was $101,658 63 The expenses 60,968 45 4.209 ?

The dry goods trade presents no new feature worth noticing. The transactions are altogether of a retail character, and unprofitable, excepting so lar as the most standard and popular articles, especially of American cottons, are concerned. These are in reduced supply and fair request, at well supported prices. But other commodities are very sparingly dealt in, and are on the decline. It Is now supposed that tho liveliest portion of this season has passed by, and that henceforward, during the next few months, dnlness and languor, increasing from week to week, will be the predominating character istlcs of the bnsiness. With such a prospect, It is not wonderful to find our dealers acting with great caution ana reserve, for this Is the only way In which safety is to be found. Brown sheetings and shirtings arcquiot, but tolerably firm, aa the stock is not Urge nor urgent. Bleached sheeting, and shirting, also appear inactive; while being more freely offered, they generally favor buyers. Denim, are rare and needed at buoyant rates. Drills are moderately Inqnlred for at previeu. quotations. Duck is in good demand and at strengthening prices. Ginghams find ready purchasers at old figures. There U rather more doing In Uwns, but these are without change In value. Oenaburgs are plentier and loss sought after. Hence, they are deprecUting, most kinds having already fallen off half cent per yard, Printing cloths are inanimate, and almost nominal in price. There are some lota now being Imported from England, which may restrict the Inquiries for home made goods. Prints are essentially unaltered. Stripe, and ticks are pretty active at former quotations.
