It is evident the lutvana Consulate i* the private pro
perty of Jefferson Davis, and this is the s-coud time he
, has tried, unsuccessfully, to trade it off so as .0 get back
1 to the Senate. When Governor Brown, of itissi.isippi,
received the Senatorial nomination, he wai forthwith
telegraphed that the Havana Consulate was at his dispo
sal. But the Governor could not bo bribed to got out of
the way and give Jefferson Davis a chance to be elected
Senator in his place. Now Jake Thompson is a candidate
for the place In the Senate which will be made vacant by
the expiration of Mr. Adams's term, and at oace he is
written to and begged to take the aforesaid Cnnsultte
and get out of Davis's way. He, however, is as inde
pendent as Governor Brown, and poor Jeff, must continue
to hold on to the War Department, or retire to the Bhaies
of private life.
As the administration cannot trade off the consulate
for a place in the Senate, perhaps they might be induced
to sell It to some enterprising man for cash. Will the
,?k, Union inform us?
The question of removing the injnnction of secresy
from the debates and correspondence on the Gadsden
treaty, is exciting the greatest feeling amongst Senators.
Those who desire the Injuction to be removed, deolare
\ epenly that the administration dare not permit it.
There has been no reiteration of tho denial that Judge
I Donglas was refused a petty appointment for a political
iriend under tlte Nebraska bill. Why does not the admi
nistration get Judge Douglas to deny that the fact is not
as we stated.
We understand that Mr. Westbrook's nomination to
the District Attorneyship, was sent to the Senate to-day.
That petition, with eighty odd signatures, together with
<Mr. Tweed's personal exertions, carried the day.

making such examination* as will enable them to furnish
information to the fullest extent, before final action on

been examining into this question, and had before them
a great mass of testimony, together with the report of
the CommisMoners appointed by the President, who a -it

A STABBING AFFRAY ? PROPABLY A FATAL AFFAIR.
An affray took placo last night, at the St. Nicholas
Hotel, between two sporting gentlemen named White
and Connor, the latter known by his friends as 'Little
Arthur." It appears they had Just returned fr am the
races, and some dispute arose between thcrj about
another person and a female. White took up the quar
rel in behalf of the absent friend, and Connor called him
a thief. The matter now became personal, and high
words passed between them. Knives were drawn, and a
clinek took place. Whito received a wound in the arm,
and Conner a stab in the abdomen, which it is said will
prove fatal. The affray produced a great excitement in
the hotel. The police were called in, and Mr. White was
taktn into custody and couveyed to the Eighth ward
HlSKtxa OF A 0IMAMBOAT IN the North River. ? On
Thursday afternoon, a little after 3 o'clock, the old
uteomboat Buffalo sank at the fodt of Robinson street,
N. R., with upward of 500 German emigrants ? men,
women and children? on their way to the West, on
board. Fortunately no lives were lost. It seems that
the steamer Hero, owned by Capt. Hancock, and char
tered by Wolf & RiokmiUer, emigrant agents, broke her
crank while on her trip to Albany on Tuesday night with
a load of emigrants, and on her return to this city
yesterday rooming, the steamer Buffalo, owned by the
name persons, was put on in her place, and commenced
taking on board those booked and waiting passage. No
sooner had these, to the number of between five and six
hundred, got on board with their baggage, than the
waUr began rushing into the portholes forward of the
boiler, which had been carelessly left open, and in less
than ten minutes tne boat keeled over and sank, no
thing but the upper deck, machinery, be., remaining in
sight. The emigrants, alter much hard labor, succeeded
in gett:ng nli their lugg^go ashore again, although in a
, greatly damaged condition. Captain Hancock imrnedi
! a t el j procured the steamer Nimrod. transferred the
passengers. baggage, &c., on board of her, and immedi
ately started far Albany. Had the Buffalo reached the
middle of the river, ana then met with a similar accident,
the loss of Ufo would undoubtedly have been very great.

The Poiioe Commission* re net yesterday at half putt
OB* o'clock, frr the purpose of trying mnplaint* agaiuHt
numbers of tfoe Police Department for tbe infraction of
tbe rules and regulations.
Isaac B. Ekaats, Eleventh ward, Daniel & Steal, Fifth
ward, Ezra Beach, Eighth ward, and Willuraa Petersen,
I leventh ward, were' placed on trial for being: coaoernetl
in calling a public meeting, at which reQeclftona were
made upon the Police Commissioner*, and aUo for pub
lishing an improper advertisement In the NVw York
Heraid, respecting a regulation of the Commissioners re

The specification against Peterson waa That the said
Peterson on or about the 21th of Jan* ult., employed
John Gardener to ereot a stand in the Park for the use of
a public meeting to protest against the action of the
Commissioners of Police in imposing an expensive and
fantastical uniform, thereby creating insubordination
among and Inciting to a violation of the discipline of tho
The specification against Skaata was : ? That the said
Skaats on the 27th June nit., acted as Secretary at a
meeting of the policemen, when the Commissioners of
Police were held up to ridicule and contempt, and did
cause to be published in the public newspapers, under his
own name, a notice for the public meeting to take into
corsideration tbe imposing an expensive and fantastical
uniform by the Commissioners of Polioe, thereby inciting
member* of the department to insubordination, and in
violation of the discipline of the department.
Tbe specification against Beech was the same, varying
it that he was Chairman against Steel, the same as that
Mr. Pcbaffer. of the New York bar, stated he attended
upon behalf of the men charged.
The affidavit of Robert Vf. Bowyer was then read, in
which the advertisement. In the Nsw Yobk Herald was
embodied, calling a meeting of the citisens and police in
the Park, on Thursday last, at 5 o'clock.
Mr Schafler then stated ho appeared for the purpose
of raising the objection, that the facte set forth in the
affidavit do not show a vio ation of the rules of the de
partment. Seciion 30 is the most comprehensive.
Judge Bee be? It does not come under that section.
Mr. frcbafTer ? The charge involves no neglect of duty.
The caU, though a violation of taste, only amounts to an
error in tbe right use of language ? in coiling tbe uniform
fantastical; but so calling it does not * mount to a viola
tion of the rules and regulations of the Police Depart
A sworn statement, made by Skaats, was then put in,
In relation to the charge of being connected with the
meeting in Mililary Hall, relative to the uniform of
the Police Department, I attended the meeting in con
sequence of a notice which was sent to the station house,
inviting the platoon off duty to attend, for the purpose
of complaining te the Commissioners of Polite in rela
tion to the uniform. Policeman Ezra C. Bench was
called to the chair, and myself and Daniel P. Steele, of
the Fifth district, were appointed secretaries. A com
mission of five was appointed to call a meeting In the
Park. One of the committee asked me to append tbe notice
of the proceedings in the Park to the proceedings of the
meeting at Military Hall, and I did do so; I do not know who
wrote the notice, and I would rather not state who gave
it to me, or who composed the committee; I disclaim in
tending to offer any disrespect te tbe Commissioners, nor
would I have signed the advertisement If I haa carefully
read it at the time.
He also made a statement that he toad put the name
of Beach and that of Steele to it without consulting
Beach and Steele both put in sworn statements deny
ing that their names were put to the advertisement
by their authority, and that they would nbt have con
sented had they known the disrespectful phraseology in
whieh it was couched. In other respects the affidavits
were the same as that of Skaats.
Mr. Schaffer then said he felt It due to the men to state
that three members of the Police Department had called
upon him a few days back, requesting he would ex* mine
into the law, and ho had tola them that they could not
resist the orders ol' the I'ollce Commissioner" a* to the
uniform and drill, and t h it he had suggested that some
of the best men of the body should meet to<etter and
lay any grievance they felt thev had before the Commis
sioners. They stated that owing to tho many expense*
they were put to by the high prise of provisions, their
pay was inadequate to moet the demand made on them.
That he might have been misunderstood. The advice
was they should have a private moetlng. He did not
think it was the intention of Mr. Skaats to do anything
insulting to the Commissioners, or that he would wil
Tne affidavit of John Gardener was then put in, in
which he stated tliat he was employed by Peterson to
erect the stage in the Park, and that he looked to him
and to him only for payment.
Peterson said? I was appointed by the committee to
employ Gardener to erect the stage, and I did so; I did
not know in what language the call of the meeting was
couched ; I understood it wis principally to have a meet
ing to let the public know the right in rogard to the uni
form, and that the order was for the men to get it forth
The Mayor ? To let the publie know?
Peterson then repeated the words, and continued? The
police were desirous of having their salary increased to
meet their expenses.
By the Major, (showing a posting bill) ? I did not
know of tho posting bills.
The Mayor ? Tliey were all over the city.
[Mr. ScH offer, who seemed to have a *et of client* who
were most desirous of speaking for themselves, acted as
moderator throughout, and appeared to have rather a
difficult tisk ]
Mr.Schaffor? I would suggest, even if Mr. Peterson did
know of the handbills, I do not And any rale to which he
would be amenable. If be knew of the handbill, it was,
at the most, bad tar-te. My advico was to get a meeting
of the judicious members of the body respectfully to con
fer with the Commissioners. Even taking Peterson's
statement, it could not be intended to concur in any In
tended slight to the Commissioners.
Judge Beebe? Myself and the other commissioners
would be always moat willing and ready to confer with
any members of the Police Department, upon anything
which they could imagine to be a grievance, or which
thev could consider pressed upon them.
The Mayor ? And no one knows this better than officer
Peterson. Be has been with me at all times and all
hours, and I have listened to all he desired to say.
Judge Be? be? We desire tho utmost confidence and
cordiality to be established between ns and the members
of the department, and should be ever ready to meet
them and their friends, and as far as was consistent with
our duties to the city, should desire to affotd thorn all
the privileges in our power. The Commissioners are the
friends of tlie department, and wish to be looked up to
by the men in that character; but rules and refutations
must be Imposed; it is for the benefit of the men as well
as for the city in general. I, for one, ain willing to be
lieve the stafpaent* of the men, acd that they did not
mean an insult. It was ungenerous towards tne Com
missioners. Complaints have been made as regards the
drilling. This Ik a new thing with them. It is not that
they are dlaiatlsflod with being dri led, bat that it takes
up so much of their time. But this reason will c ease
wcet they become ["utect. The necessity for this fre
quent attendance will not exist. There ii not a man in
the department bnt whoso welfare the Commissioners
are desirous of promoting. I am personally known to
six or Siren hundred of tne men. and f certainly could
have no desire to oppress them. The office is one en
tirely honorary, and most ouorous in its re.iuitumeir s,
m*4 difficult. A dissection as to punishment in vetted in
tfi? Commissioners, and when thin is so it too often tfn
e rates dissatisfaction and ill ieeling; but when the pun
ishment is defined the office of the judge U o.ily to pro
nounce the law. When any rule operates a* a h*'d?hip
upon the men, that rule, 1 tun assured, the Commission
ers would amend, if consistent with the effic:ojcy <md
discipline of the fore. The master In yspee.' to * he

tie regulations have not " been fvirly looked at, nor do

which the prociedinR* of the Commissioner* .ire con
ducted. The object of the Commissioners is to elevate
the department in character and consequence. In order
that the g?nernl community may have confidence in
them. The idea secnn to be prevalent among the men
that light rules would lie sufficient. The department
holds in security the life nnd property of the citizens,
and the object of the lan is to ensure that security, and
therefore the men should be carefully selected, in order
to entitle them to that confldonco which their office im
pores. That which has given rise to the present ul?a
gr?eai>Vs Is the prormilgaiing rules repeoting uniforms,
compelling them to wnar a uniform by which they can
be rttogniredas well by their brother officers as by the
citizens. The uniform is, in /act. a badge of honor ? t he
symbol of authority. There is nothing fantastical iu
the dress proposert ? it it simple and elegant. It
haptens to be a uniform. and hence the objection.
Tho caps hav proved effective, and in some case*
have preserved life, hut it was not Intended the men

uniform; the additional glOu was to meet the expense*
Imposed. Our effort snd endeavor have been, an<t are, to

the Building known as Christ's Protestant Episcopal
Church, situated in Eighteenth Btreet, Mar Fifth avenue,
took place in the presence of several bishops and clergy
The ceremonies of the day commenced with a volunta
ry on the organ.
A procession, of Bishops Wainwright, of New York;
Bit-hop Upfoid, of Indiana; Bishop Potter, of Pennsylva

the church, followed by the trustees, then entered the
middle aisle, and proceeded up tbe centre of the edifice to
The Morning Service of the Episcopal form of worship
was then read by the several clergymen present. The
first IceBon for the day was read by the Rev. Mr. Head,
and the second one by the Rev. Mr. Hslsey, of Sing Sing.
Previous to the commencement of the IJttany, the
second and third verses of the twenty- first selection of
Psalms were sung by the choir as follows: ?
I'll wash my hands in Innocence,
And round thy altar ge,
Pour the glad hymn of triumph there,
And thence thy wonders show.
My thanks I'll publish there, and tell
How thy renown excels;
That sest affords me moat delight
In which thine honor dwells.
The pattor of the church, the Rev. Charlbs Halsey,
then i.fttf a paper, whioh went on to state that tbe
church had been incorporated sixty years ago? in the
year 1784. It was first built in Ann street, in the year
1704, aDd was afterwards removed to Anthony street, in
1828, ? here the bonding was burnod down in 1847, but
tvas subsequently rebuilt in 1848. In 1854 ? the present
year? the church was removed from its former location
to its present ci*e in Eighteenth street, near Fifth avenue,
where dlvl&e service would be continued every Sunday
at the usual hours. There was one person then present,
mid the speaker, named Mrs. Bfchert, who was present at
the consecration ot the church when llrst incorporated,
sixty ye?r? ago, w <? was pr<' ? ut at the consecrations in
the years 1HXH a&<> H48. That aged lady was there pre
sent, be was glad to Ha^, enjoying good health, and all
her facultir * intact.
The "9th P&alm was then sung by the choir and con
gregation, of which >e append the fo lowiug stanzas : ?
With one oonaent let all the earth
To GoJ their cheerful voices raise,
OlftC homaf r- pay with awful mirth,
Avid siuy before him songs of praise.
Oh, enter, then, his temple gate,
Thence to lils courts devoutly press;
And still ycur grateful hymns repeat,
And atiil his name with praises bless.
Bishop Pontes then a? cended the pulpit and preached
the s? rtnon on the occasion. He toefc for hi* Uvt the
lath verse uf the 11th chapter of St. John? '? Howbett

PER10C8 CHAKGE AOAINBT A POLICEMAN AT CIN
CINNATI-? A member of the First ward police,
iiamtii Frank Shelby, was arrestee! yesterday, to
answer the charge of seducing and having adulter
ous connection with his own step-daughter, a beau
tiful young lirl about fourteen years of age. It ap
pears that Mr. Shelby and his wife separated some
months ago. Mr. Shelby charged Mrs. Shelby with
improper oandtaet, and she accused him of wishing
to ruin her daughter by a former husband. About
the time she left him, he applied for letters of
guardtoiifhip, and Mrs. Shelby opposed the appli
cation. The Court was convinced that Shelby
would tot be a proper guardian, and refused to ap
point hiin. Immediately afterward the girl was
missing. Shelby denied all knowledge of her
whereabouts. Mrs. Shelby was almost distracted,
and made every possible eff rt to On I her child, but
all in vain. Snc applied to officers, but they would
not or could not do anything. She appealed to
Mayor Snelbaker, to have the matter investigated,
but lie ticclined doing anything until some
proof could be found of Mr. Shelby's agency in
ui'ilueting the girl, or the girl conld be produced.
Shelby had acknowledged to his wifo that he knew
where the girl was, and hsd threatened that he
would have a still .vounger stepdaughter, whom Mrs.
Shelby bad under her charge. Despairing of flnd
ii c her eldest daughter, and alarmed lest she should
lose the other, Mrs. Shelby lelt the city, and took
her youngest child, named Mary, to her relatives for
safety. Since Mary, who is about twelve years of
been there, letters have been sent to her
pstiiig her to run away. Soon after Mrs. Shelby
left the city her missing daughter, whose name is
,\nguste, made her appearance In town, declaring
th.'t ?lic bad been to some school in the country.
Mil has since been hoarding at the same house with
Mi. Shelby, corner of Filth street and Broadway.
On last Tuesday evening Mrs. Shelby returned to
t incinnati, and taking legal advice, had her husband
arrested. Upon the arrest being effected by Marshal
Uuffin, the girl made a full confession, Implicating
Mr. Shelby In conduct which our statute declares to
be iiiCC6t. Mr. Shelby, in default of $1,000 bail, was
committed to the ctlls of tho watch house. Mrs.
Shelby was foimerly an actress of some repute, and
is a keen, intelligent woman. Mr. Shelby has been
considered a quiet, faithful officer, and has been con

But one race came off yesterday. It was two mile
heats for three year olds, for which there were four
entries, viz.:? ch. c. Bam 1 .etcher, by Wagner, dam
by Medoc; g. c. Little Arthur, by Glenooe.dam Blue
Bonnets; Ur. Whitten's ch. f. by imported Glencoe,
dam by Medoc; and Mr. Dilahunt's ch. c. Henry, by
imported Olencoe, dam by Medoc. The last named
did not start. Bam Letcher, although a Wagner,
bears a strong resemblance to the Glencoe family,
and looks very much like Garret Davis. He is,
however, a little grosser in form. He is held in high
estimation as a utile horse, and yesterday proved
himself a capital tiro mile nag. Although beaten on
Tuesday in his race with Garret Davis and Wild
Irishman, he redeemed himself nobly on this occa
sion. Little Aithur was the favorite at large odds.
He is considered to be a first rate horse at mile
heats. He ran lately at Baltimore, whore he was so
unfortunate as to fall during the race, and was beat'
en. From the manner in which his friends backed |
him yesterday they felt very confident of his suc
cess. He was again unfortunate?iri his race yester
day, one of the stirrups of his saddle having broken
in the early part ol' the first heat. His friends attri
bute his defeat to that cause. Mr. Whitten's ch. filly
that ran &o finely in the race with Henry on rues
day, mile heats, did not reach up to public expecta
tion as a two mile nag. Bbe made a poor ran, and
was distanced in the lust heat, the heavy traok tell
ing sadly against her.
First Htat. ? TJie chestnut Ally won the pole, Bam
Lctc-her the second place, Arthur outside. They
went off nicely together, and were in a heap on the
upper torn. When next seen, emerging from behind
the trees, which obscured them for an instant, the
"My was leading Arthur about a length, Sam two or
three lengths behind. They kept abont so down
the back stretch, until, passing the Mansion House,
Bam began to close on Arthur, and ou the lower
turn they were all pretty dm togetaer. They
came up the home stretch vigorously, and pitsiwd
the judges' stand at a rapid rate, the Iilly lint, Sam
1 etcher second, and Little Arthur third, with his
stirrup leather broken, lime or nral ml!e
Arthur closed on the ffpper turn, his rider sitting as
easily aa if the accident had not occurred. As the
filly entered on the back stretch B?iin challenged
and passed her; Little Arthur then followed suit,
and made a brush for Sam, running up and lapping
him. The race now became very exciting. Around
the lowe/turn Bam tried to shake tiie little t'elloiv
off, but he elung to him most pertinaciously. A
desperate struggle was maintained up the home
stretch to the judges' stand, when it was discovered
that Sam was a neck in advance, the backers of
the little gray feeling sanguine of his success until
the horses were under the string. Time of lost mile
two minutes, and of the heat 3:58.
Second Heat ? Notwithstanding the severity of
the lost heat, all the horses came up well to the
post. Little Arthur particularly, bis friends still in
nigh hopes of the result. Sam 1 .etcher, tibwever,
had got to be the favorite, anil odds were given on
him. They got off well, the filly leading as before,
and away they went, Sam Letcher slipping on the
torn and falling behind. Arthur now cut out the
running, an<! going up to the iilly passed her and i
led down the back stretch, and in front of the Man- .
sioa House was three lengths ahead, Bam Letcher |
about the same distance behind the filly. When
they had reached the lower turn, Bam was discover
ed to be closing up rapidly; he soon cut down the
filly, and reached to within a length of Arthur.
The gray came to the score first in 1:57, Bam next,
and the iillv a couple of engths behind him. On
the next mile Sam made several ineffectual attempts
to reach Arthur, but the little gray still Kept the
lead. Down the back stretch and around the lower
turn the exciting struggle was continued, which
proved too much for the gray, as. coming up the
home stretch, Bam made another brush, going in
front, and winning the h?at by a length. The filly |
was distanced, having relinquished the contest on
the back stretch. Time of the .last mile 1:594, and
of the beat 3:56i. i
