Parliamentary Oppositionist Action Against Indi rect Damages?"Degradation" by Consulta tion on the Counter Case?Earl Granville's Conversation with Minister Schenck. TELEGRAMS TO THE NEW YORK HERALD. London, April 22, 1872. The Duke of Richmond, In tho House of Lords, anil Mr. Disraeli, In the House of Commons, gave notice to-night that they should question the gov ernment to-morrow as to whether it was prepared to give Parliament and the country aMsurance that further proceedings beforo tho Geneva Hoard for the arbitration of the Alabama claims will be sus pended unless the claims for Indirect damages are withdrawn and abandoned by the governuicut of the United States. In the upper honse Lord Oranmore wanted all tho papers produced and also tho minutes of the conversations accompanying the presentation of the British counter case at Geneva. The record, he believed, would prove humiliating to tho country, lie declared it was degrading to ask the American government any question us to the propriety of our presenting tho counter case. Earl Granville replied that there had been no degradation. He doscribed ills couvcrsation with Mr. Schenck, tho American Minister, as entirely personal. Mr. Schenck agreed to ask tho govern ment at Washington its view of the propriety of the presentation by Great Britain of hor counter case and accompanying document at Geneva. To this Inquiry no answer had been received. Press Canvau of the American Policy Project for a Cessation of the Arbitra tion Representation In Geneva. London, April 22, 1872. The Times of this morning devotes another arti cle to the Alabama claims difficulties. Alluding to the rumors prevailing on the ono hand that tho United States will withdraw their extraordinary claims, and on the other that they will maintain them, the Times says"Perhaps the policy of President Grant consists in keeping the case unsettled until the 16th of June, the time for the reassembling of the Trlbuual of Arbitration at Geneva. The duty of England under these circum stances is plain. She should proceed no further In the arbitration If the claims of the American gov ernment for Indirect damages are not withdrawn. The London Times strongly urges, In the same article, the adoption by Parliament of the motion which Earl Kusuell has announced his Intention of Introducing In the House of LordB for an address to the Crown for the suspension of proceedings on the part of Great Britain before the Geneva tribunal until tho American claims for indirect damages are withdrawn. THE QUESTION IN CONGRESS Resolution Asking for the Flsli-Gran vllle Correspondence. In the Ilouse of Representatives yesterday Mr. Cox, of New York, offered a resolution asking for reliable information in regard to the subject of consequential damages Involved In the matter of claims against Great Britain, which was roferred to the Committee on Foreign Affairs. The resolution calls for the correspondence be tween tho Secretary of State and Lord Granville, and is aimed both at the disposition on the part of tho State Department to carry on these negotiations without the knowledge of Con gress and at the possibility of a backdown or com promise by the administration. There is a very powerful lobby seeking the with drawal of the claim for consequential damages, and, in spite of all the assurances to tho contrary, a fear that a compromise will bo effected which will l)e a virtual withdrawal of the whole case. Mr. Cox, In pressing his resolution upon the attention of the House, Insisted upon the right of the people to know at least as much as the English Parliament knew upon this subject. SPAIN.

The Bill fbr tike Repeal of the Tax on Tea and Coflfoe. The feature In the Senate to-day was the failure of Senator Scott to obtain a consideration of the House bill for the repeal of the duty on toa and coflee, the absence of Mr. Sherman, Chairman of the Finance Committee, being the excuse for this action. A good deal of feeling prevails here on account of this delay, and the administration Senators are not slow to charge a vicious spirit upon the democrats and recaloitrant republicans by their concerted action on the measure. Business men complaiu loudly of the de lays, and while, not oaring what action the Senate may take, are anxious that action may be taken one way or the other, that trade may not longer be delayed by the uncertainty at present existing.

In the case of Thomas Pearson, who several days ago applied for a mandamus to compel Comptroller Green to pay |49,476 91, seventy per cent of the amount claimed to be due for paving Second avenue between Eighty-sixth and 126th streets, the Judge yesterday gave a decision. "It is sufficient to say that the relator's claim is disputed, and that he has a perfect remedy at law If his claim bo Just. Tho right to a writ of mandamus in an application like this depends upon two elements?First, the claim, or demand, paymeut of which Is sought to be en forced, must be clearly established; second, the relator must be remediless by action. (2 Crary HpL Prac., 49, and cases cited n ptirU? Lynch, 2 Hill, 46.) In the matter of L.vuch Justice Cowen said:?"Hut when there is a plain and adequate remedy by action for the party aggrieved the writ of mandamus does not lio, I am not aware of any exception to this rule. There Is, however, another objection to the success of his application. There Is no fund out of which it can be paid?no fund or moneys specially appropriated thereto. The application is, for these reasons, denied." COURT OF GENERAL SESSIONS. A Felonious Assault upon a Keeper of the House of Refuge?The<Yonthful Despera does Sent to the Htate Prison by Judge Bedford. Uefore City Judge Gunn^ig S. Bedford. The only case of general public Interest disposed of yesterday in tills Court was a charge of felonious assault and battery preferred agalust two youthful desperadoes, named Thomas McLaughlin, alias John Kyan, and Michael Lawler, alias Mai tin Reynolds, inmates of the House of Refuge. The Grand Jury found another indictment against McLaughlin. The complainant In this particular case whs Thomas 11. Melled.v, one of the keepers of the House of Refuge on Randall's Island, who testllled that on the 8th of this month a number of boys?eight or ten?were making their escape from the House of Refuge, among whom were the pris oners ; he gave chase, and when they got to the river Lawler held hlni by the shoulder while Mc Laughlin cut him ou the cheek, on the ear, and In two places on the back or tho neck with a sharp In strument, inflicting wounds and causing tho blood to How profusely. The complainant, upon cross examination, said that they attempted to escape between three and four o'clock In the afternoon; when he got to the river bank McLaughlin was In the water; he (the witness) had a small club lu Ills hand, but did not use it upon any of the boys. Daniel H. Sprague, the Vice -Principal of the school, was called to prove that the prisoners were inmates of the House of Refuge. Michael Lawlor was called by Mr. McClelland and examined in Ills own behalf. He said he saw some boys run towards the gate, and followed them towards ffie river, but lie had not time to reach tho bank till Mr. Molledy came and ordered hlni and an other boy to go on the bank: while standing there he saw a" boy named Driscoll and the prisoner Mc Laughlin come out of the water and strike Melledy two or three times In the face, but ho (Lawler) had nothing to do with the stabbing, and did not hold tho complainant. Thomas McLaughlin was also sworn, and ad mitted striking the complainant, but denied hav ing struck him with a knife. The jury convicted them of an assault with a dangerous weapon, with intent to do bodily harm, and recommended Lawler to the mercy of the Court. Judge Bedford saidGentlemen, I always like to pay all the deference I can to the Jury when they recommend a party to the merciful consideration of the Court, but I t hink it mv duty to tell you who this ljiwler Is, and if you still recommend him to mercy I will consldor it. Some time ago these two young men were indicted for robbery, and on account of their youth tho District Attorney very properly took a Dlea which enabled me to send them to the IIouso of Refuge. About ten days ago Superintendent Jones wrote me a letter, which Is on Hie with the clerk, stating that they were desperate, reck less, dangerous boys; that they not only Inflicted the stab wound upon the complainant, of which you have this day pronounced them guilty, but two days afterwards, on the loth, they nearly killed another keeper. 1 have been officially requested to put them out of the way?to send them either to the State Prison or the Penitentiary. I think as a mat ter of law, as well as a matter of fact, that Lawler Is Just as guilty as the one who Indicted the stab wound. Where the Inmates of an lnstirutton are so reckless and desperate It would be a bad precedent, considering the antecedents of theso prisoners, to put on record a recommendation to mercy by the jury, because subordination Is tho salvation of every institution: so that If you with draw that recommendation to mercy I will use my discretion In the matter. The Foreman of the Jury?It Is withdrawn. Assistant District Attorney Sullivan?There Is another indictment against McLaughlin, but I will net try it. Judge Bedford?I shall send von, Lawler, to the State Prison for five years. McLaughlin, you are onlv sixteen years of age, and I shall send you to the Penitentiary for live years. Larceny In a Clothing Store?The Youth ful Thieves Sent to Sing Sing by the City Judge* John Barker and John McLoughlin were tried upon an indictment charging them with burglariously entering the tailor shop of Simon Fisher, No. 9% Frankfort street, on the night of the 2d of this month. Clothing valued at. (100 was taken. The testimony was not sufficient to sustain the charge of burglary, but tho Jury convicted the prisoners of grand larceny, the goods having been found in their possession. The officcr Informed the Judge that he never saw the boys do any work. Ills Honor sen tenced each of them to the state Prison for three years. Adolph Beer pleaded guilty to having an obscene photograph In his possession with intent to dis pose oflt, and was sentenced to the Penitentiary for six months. An Acquittal. Patrick McDofiald was tried up<m a charge of stealing a pocketbook, containing $47, from Thomas Fitzgerald, on the 22d of November.

An Out-and-Out Republican Charter Ready. VANDERBILT'S RAILROAD JOB. Action of tho Senate 011 Local 13111m. Albany, N. Y., April 22, 1872, There was barely a quorum preseut when the Assembly was called to ordor tills evening. The Senate endeavored to meet at the regular hour (half past seven), but was unable to count a sufficient number of noses to make the etrort a success. After waiting till eight o'clock tho punctual members were enabled to get together a few workers, but not enough to permit of the third reading of bills. T1IK UOVKKNOll ANI> TOE CITY CHAKTRR. The question as to whether the Governor will sign the New York charter or not still continues to bo the theme of conversation on all sides. Tho opinion is now becoming general that the Governor will interpose his veto, although there are many who claim that he will permit it to become a law by allowing It to remain pigeon-holed lu the executive office until tho expiration of the legal ten days. It Is said that the most Bcrlous obstacle to tho bill's becoming a law Is a clause that provides that no person who has not resided in the Sena torial district in which he may reside on the day of election for at least thirty days previous to election can vote for Alderman. It Is claimed that as "Mov ing Day" and election day both come in May this fea ture of the bill will disfranchise thousands of voters, and that the bill should be vetoed on this If on no other ground. The Governor has already been deluged with letters and protests from New York voters, who do not care about being left out In the cold on election day, an d It Is said that theae protests arc having considerable weight with htm. Indeed, as far as this disfranchising feature of the bill Is con cerned, It Is asserted by not a few members of both Houses that It was put In the bill with tho purpose of disfranchising the very class It necessarily docs disfranchise? those unfortunates who do not own the houses they live In. it was no step of Judgment, they say, and in support of this they point to the fact that Colonel Hawkins did his ltest to Induce his fellow members In committee to iusert twenty days In lieu of tho words thirty days. Had this effort been successful no disfranchisement of the 1st of May in overs who Intend to move ont of their Senate districts would havo been possible. It Is hard to see, under tho cir cumstances, why the committee opposed it. Among the other rumors atloat in relation to the probabili ties of the situation is an Important one, to the effect that Charles O'Conor has written an elaborate opinion adverse to tho Constitutionality of the cnmulatlvo voting feature of the char ter. The rumor at this hour, however, cannot be traced to any authentic source, although it la believed to have some good founda tion In fact. The republicans are very much exer cised over the mooted question of the veto, and they are busily enguged. In consequence of the un certainty of aiSalrs, In "fixing" things so as to meet even the worst possible contingency. I have It rroui the very best authority that they have a char ter already framed, which, In case of a veto of the Seventy's bill, they will put through under the whip and spur of the previous question. It Is said that this char ter Is an out-and-out republican one, and Is so framed that the city will be certain to be controlled, no matter what the people maj have to say al>ont It, by republican commissions, under the circum stances it. may bo that the democrats will come to the conclusion that half a loaf is better than no loaf at ail, and do their best, tor rear of worse things to come, to bolster the Seventy's scheme into a tri umph. ' The Governor will have the whole of this week during which to answer the question which every one Is asking, " What will he ao with it v" Hefore answering it, however, he Intends to Rive repre sentative citizens of New York an op portunity of presenting before hirn their arguments In favor of the chnrter and against It, and has appointed next Thursday for the purpose. The Seventy people will bo up in force, and a small army of oftlce holders will also come boldl.v to the front, with the hope of making an impression on His Excellency, so as to secure a veto and thus preserve their places a llttly longer. COMMODORE VANPERBILT'S RAII.ROAD SCITEME3 now before the Legislature will bo brought to an Issue very soon. Mr. William II. Vanderbilt came up In a special train this afternoon, accompanied by Mr. Dutcher, one of the directors; Mr. Huck hout, Chief Engineer, and Mr. Depew, counsel for the railroad company, together with several other gentlemen, among whom were Senators Johnson, Wagner and Murphy, and Mr. Whltl?eck, of the Assembly. Mr. Wliltbeck, who is a member of the Railroad Committee and gives special attention to tho subject of rapid tran sit, went down to New York on Saturday and had an Interview with Vanderbilt on that evening by appointment. The majority of the Kallroad Com mittee of the Assembly had reported In favor of Vanderbllt's plan of sinking the track on Fourth avejiue, above the Grand Central depot, by having an open cut, whllo Mr. Wliltbeck and Mr. Smyth favored tho tunnel sys tem. The object of the interview was to endeavor, If possible, to eflfect a compromise by which the rights of the railroad company to tho use of the avenue would be respected^ and at the same time the interests and wishes of the property owners on the avenue promoted. The result of the interview was that Mr. Vanderbilt con cluded to abandon the Idea of an open cut, and expressed his willingness to adopt the essential features of the tunnel system proposed by Mr. Whitbeck. The compromise consisted of an agree ment that, instead of commencing to sink tho track within tho Grand Central depot, the company should commence to depress It from their grounds at Forty-eighth street, and sink It as rapidly as possible until the road should be fairly under ground at Fifty-llfth street, whence the tnnnel should continue until it gained the one now existing under Yorkvllle Hill. Hefore Anally consenting to this compromise Mr. Whitbeck consulted a number of representative men of his constituents, who met this forenoon at Mr. Vanderbllt's oltlce and expressed themselves In favor of tho plan. The Commodore is very proud of his depot, and claimed tho privi lege of maintaining the tracks as thev exist on the company's grounds up to Forty-eighth street, but he consented to enclose the grounds and to the construction of bridges over the cut from Forty-eighth street to Fifty-flfth street. The tunnel Is to be well lighted ami ventilated with open ings, to bo ornamented similar to those on Park avenue, where the present tunnel runs under Murray Hill. The city is to pay half the expense of the improvement, upon tho theory that it will enhance the value or property north of Forty-second street and east or Central i'ark, by which the city will receive, by Increased taxation, more than the amount it will expend long before the seventeen years will have explre<L Vanderbilt Is anxious to have his rapid transit. I'NDKKOROrM) SOI KMK TO CITY HALL PARK adopted, and he says he Intends to go to work and build the road as soon as tho franchise shall have been granted. The Central Underground people are opposed to this bill, because tho route from tho City Hall to Fourteenth street is preclsoly tho same as that mapped out In their original franchise. It was Vanderbllt's engineer who laid out the original route of the Central Underground, and It is likely tlmt he Intends to come to some arrangement' with them If he really means to build the road; otherwise, his scheme, If It passed, would be useless, Itecause It would encroach upon the vested rights of the Cen tral Underground. This point will be brought up at the meeting of the Railroad Committee to-morrow, when the Central Underground Interest is to have a hearing. PROCHEniKGS in TnE SINATE.

BEECHES ON THE SABBATH. A Large Audience at Cooper Institute? Mr. Beeeher BelleTai In Opening " nit Ing Roorni, Lycrami and Art Gailerfeo on Wund?jr??The Poor Man Weed* Them?Six Days* Work and One Day>? Rest. Cooper Inatitutc nail was lost evening packed with an audience who had come Co hear the Rev. .Henry Ward Beeeher advocate the opening of the pf Mic libraries, lyceums and art galleries on Sun days. Long before eight o'clock every Heat ln4 the kail waa occupied, anil standing room is< the vicinity of the platform could scarcely be had. On the platform a number of ladies and gentlcmetf.occupied every available inch of room. Promptly atr eight o'clock the large audience in timated a desire for Mr. Beeeher'* presence, and the eminent lecturer at once put In an appearance. After some remarks by Mr. Hewitt, the chairman, stating the object or the meeting, Hr. lieecher waa introduced. He said that wtien the clergy agreed about the observance of the Lord's ility the laity were sure to follow, aud the obverse was also true, for when tlio laity agreed 011 the observance of that day tlia clergy were sure not to oppmte. There was no difference between clergy and laity. The word citizen swallowed up all. In regard to great moral questions there were no dividing lines, and he count ed it an auspicious occasiou for the consideration of the present subject that so many thousands had assembled there that night. He would be sorry to oppose those who would sanctity the Sabbath; for he came of an old Purl fair ancestor. Ho would have the day <lo more than It now does; If It had done one good thing ho would have it do twenty more. He believed In giving It a fuller and larger use. It could be made to do ruoro. Large num bers had come to our shores who would have it made a holiday. He stood between both excesses, and wauted, not conflict, but co-t?peratiou. As it was, it was an American Sabbath, a church day, a religious day of rest. In other Ihnds thero were games and amusements on Sunday, with a llttlft preliminary ruille of church In the morning. When In; was a boy he used to think that everything waa unlike what It was on any other day*?the homo, the birds in tho fields, the stillness. And though but a boy, he used to have a certain poetic feeling ovor him every Sabbath. He honored th?. man who kept the old Sunday, and he honored the 'luy for what it had done for Ills fathers and for the community, llut there could be more of Sunday, more of i-ianc tlty. Tho old Jews made Saturday their Sabiiatli, but they looked upon It simply as a day of rest and joy. The only thing they objected to was work. We had not any express com mand from the Scriptures as Ob how th? Sabbath should be kept. The observance of the Lord's Day had come to us with bars ami bolts upon It. What was tho Lord's Day? It was that day when Jesus healed, and upon which He re buked the Jews for calling to account some of IILi disciples who hail eaten In the fields, for the reason that it was lawftil to do good on that day. In tho face of tho Jewish teaching the Master had taught it to be a day of humanity. It was made for man and not man for it. It was not made to destroy liberty, but for larger manhood. Then, what were the beneficent uses of It? It was a day for physictal rest, and that we alt needed. Hero the speaker gave an eloquent description of the life of a poor man, his want of rest and the need he iiail for It, anil said that tho wealthy, who had every thing they wanted, were not the judges of what the poor man needed ou Sunday. Be then went on to speak of Sunday In the churches and draw a vivid picture of the effort made by clcrks aud young men of that standing to pass tho day, beginning in t ho morning with a cold reenption in some church, or perhaps treated to some sermon, In which they might be enlightened that Adam was the father of the human race; and thai, after spending a day, perfectly meaningless, finally at night time seeking company In an evil place. He would not com pel people to go to church, hut he would Inculcate that they should do so. It waa enough to have to cambat the devil for six days In the week, and it was therefore wel to take a fresh start on Snnday by going to wor-l ship. This sort of rest was needed, and It was the more needed by those who were poor, for theso needed mora! pqjver, and It, was to secure this power that ho advocated Sabbath education. The lecturer then went ou to show how Sunday should be spent. Ho believed in the Sabbath being a church day in the morning and a family day tit tho evening. There was tin) much proaehfng and too much Sunday school teaching. It was tun I to do anything that made people tired of the Sunday or to bring up children with a terror over them. He advocated the poor man's Sun day, and that the day for rest should not be as It was among the Jews, a day of rent for the rich only. In every walk of life ?lx days' work was enough, and means should he taken whereby, if It were necessary that work should be done on the Sablmth, It should not be done by those Who had worked the previous six rtavs. He was In favor of running the city cars on Sunday, so that the poor might get u chance of getting fresh air and sunlight, though he did oppose making any conduc tor work seven days. As to the opening of the public libraries, lyccunm and art galleries on the Sabbath, he was in favor of the project. He believed that young men should have some place to go rtn Sundays where they would meet companionship. In the spirit of the Master, whose? rebirth occurred on the Sabbath, he would ask that tills placc be given. If It were said that the Sabbath was for religion only, he would answer that it was lor humanity. To those who would say that If the reading rooms were once thrown open they could not be closed again ir it proved Injurious to leave them open, he would an swer that we were not children and that the sens? of the community could and would close them. Mr. Heecher here read a letter from a gentleman In Philadelphia to the etrect that the Mercan tilo Library of that city had now been opened on Sun days for three years, with good results, and con cluded by hoping that the opening of the reading rooms on the Sabbath would bring down blessings on the poorer classes. Resolutions were then adopted calling on the trustees of Cooper Institute, the Mercantile Library and the Astor Library to open the reading rooms on Sundays, and thanking Mr. Becchcr for his eloquent lecture. The Chairman of the meeting announced that In the fall of the year Cooper Institute Heading Room would be open on Sundays, from two o'clock P. M. until ten o'clock I'. M. The meeting 'ben adjourned.
