BOATING ON THE HUDSON. Jhr Contest for the Manhattan Club Medal postponed? The Doable Scull Race, &c. Yesterday afternoon the quiet little village of Manhattanvlllo was alive with excitement, caused by the expectation of a grand single scull race for the Manhattan Boat Club medal, between Mr. Edward Decring and Mr. Martin Doolan. l/ong be fore the stated time for the race had arrived crowds liegan to line the river bank and the pier; but, sad to relate, their hopes and expectations were doomed to disappointment, as the rare xv as not rowed. Messrs. Doolan and Deerlng being the contestants, the interest very naturally centred upon them, and the assembled multitude threw admiring glances at them as they sauntered jip and down the pier. A person without a knowl edge of the antecedents of t.ho men as boatmen would fie decidedly influenced In Mr. Deerlng's favor by his One physique. He Is about twenty years of age, five feet nine inches in height, and powerfully built, weighing 100 pounds. Mr. Doolan Is the diametric antlpode of Mr. Deerlng In (appearance. He Is a light built man, about twenty-nine years of age, and weighs | Jabout 13d pounds. Mr. Deering's style ' taf pulling Is as unlike Mr. Doolan'a as is his ap- , . pcarance. Ho pulls a heavy stroke, while Doolan I nulls that light, quick, feathery stroke which of late years has become so popular. Large odds were (offered on Doolan, but round very rew takers, for It will be remembered that Doolan has won several races, among others the one In which he carried off [the club medal, to which Mr. Deerlng aspires. ?>oolan, however, has a lease of the medal, and j Ithere Is little chance of Its changing hands ' this season. The men came to the Starting point, Deerlng in a shell and Doolan In a seventeen-foot working boat. (Even with these odds In his favor Deerlng refused to null, complaining that the water was too rough; but It wan as calm as ?ver It will be. Kow, when is the race oomlng off? Deerlng turned . the dock and retired, Doolan, much disappointed, following. Maledictions were heaped with a vharltablo bounty upon the retiring man's head by Ehe assembled multitude when It was discovered hat lu: refused to row.

A double scull race was also on the programme for the afternoon. The following gentlemen were entered Martin Doolan and George Kuntz, Ed ward Deerlng and Nicholas Kuntz. The course was from the Manhattan Dock to the sugar refinery, CarmansvtUe, and return, making m all a distance of three miles. Messrs. Deer lng and Kuntz won the race, doing the distance in twenty-seven minutes. Doolan and Kttnts did not come In, they having met with an uccldent. The crowd were, strange to say. quite undemonstrative; btit this may be attributed to the fact that Deerlng was In the winning boat? not so much that he refused to row with Doolan, but that Doolan, who Is very popular with the people, was not the winner. At a meeting of the Board of Police, held yester day afternoon, D. B. Hasbrook was appointed Chief of the Bureau ol Elections, at a salary of |A,000 a year.

Negotiations Between Earl Granville and the State Department. A Slight Difficulty Between Mr. Fiih and Sir Ed ward Thornton? The British Foreign Secre tary Proposes an Amendment to the Sup plemental Article on Testimony of the English Minister Which the Secre tary of State Denies Having Authorised? The Ques tion in London. Washington, June 8, 1872. The despatches exchanged to-day between Minis ter Schenck and Secretary Flah, and Karl Granville und Sir Edward Thornton, indicate that the BrttUh government has discovered a new source of excuses for dilatory action and captious criticism, and has proposed an amendment to the supplemental article to cover a certain class of claims which are believed to be left unprovided for In the artlclo as It now stands. For the tenth time Mr. Fish replied that the Senato's article is our ultimatum, and that it was useless to propose amendment* of any Kind. A question of veracity has arisen between M Inister Thornton and Secretary Fish, of a similar character to that between the British and Ameri can members of the Joint High Commission, on the subject of Indirect claims. GranvlUo asserts on the authority of Thornton that Secretary Fish told him in plain langdage that the article adopted by the Senate was capable of Improvement, as It left a large class of very probable cases nn provlded for, and that Mr. Fish distinctly Indicated some of thoso cases arising from the use of the word "belligerent" in the language of the supplemental article as proposed by the British government and accepted by the Senate. This statement alarmed Granville, who, since the question regarding the disposition of the three classes of indirect claims before the Geneva Tribunal,? viz. :, the enhanced rates of in surance, transfer of our mercantile marine and the prolongation of the war? has, upon the authority of Mr. Thornton, pressed Mr. Schenck to propose to our government such an amendment as would pro vide against the claims referred to by Mr. Wsh. Mr. Fish positively denies that lie ever gave Mr. Thornton any assurance that would justify him iu pressing farther amendments. 11c says qulto as emphatically as Mr. Thornton asserts to the contrary that he never told the British Minis ter that he desired or that our government desired any amendments of the kind. Mr. Schenck has been instructed to declare to Earl Granville in the most emphatic manner that it Is useless to pro poso or discuss amendments to the Senate article. The impression is fast gaming ground here that Schcnck has become the amanuensis of Granville. REPORT FROM LONDON. The Indirect Claims Negotiations Progressing Toward a Settlement TELEGRAM TO THE HEW YORK HERALO. London, June 8, 1R72. The Daily Telegraph newspaper this morning says it has reason to believe tho negotiations with the United States government relative to a definite settlement of the consequential damages contro versy are progressing satisfactorily. REV. DR. HUSTON. The Ecclesiastical Court Pronounce a Verdict of Not Guilty. The Acquittal Severely Commented Upon by the Friends of the Prosecution? The Reverend Gentleman Will Now Press a Suit for Libel for 9100,000. Baltimore, June 8, 1872. On the 24th of February last tbe most terrible rumors were published by the American, in this city, connecting the name of the Rev. I)r. Huston, one of the eminent divines of the Methodist Eptsco cttl Church South, and at that time the pastor of Trinity church, in this city, with the grossest violation of the moral code and the most disgusting, licentious crimes known to hnmanlty. These charges were taken up and heralded all over the land, and at the Confer ence, held at Warrenton, Va., in March, a commit tee was appointed to investigate these charges, and its labors have been duly printed In the Hkkald each day from these despatches. The ecclesiastical committee that has been in session for nearly three weeks investigating these grave charges against the chasity of Rev. Dr. Huston wss left In session last night deliberating upon its verdict. THK COlKr IN SESSION ALL NHinT. All night long the committee pursued Its labor, for every word of the testimony taken during the long, tedlons Inquiry had to bo read over and digest ed anew, stid it was not until fifteen minutes after seven o'clock this morning that the sleep-weary preachers who composed the Court finally deter mined upon the following as the result of their de liberations : ?

Indeed, so constant have been tbe visits that he was obliged t<?-nlglit to remove to a house of a friend to get the rest that he sorely needs. The Doctor received the congriitulatlons of his well wishers with considerable feeling, and all day seemed to hardly comprehend tho good fortune that had to come to him, because he well knew the Influences that had been brought to bear to secure a conviction were very great, and the prosecution had been urged with all the vlndlctlveness that at taches to any crlminul prosecution In a court of law. but he had stood the storm and come out all right; and while he and Ids immediate friends, as well as those who had been on the fence, rejolccd the accusers were correspondingly sad. MORE TROrBI.F. THREATENS TUB PASTOR. Thev denounced the Court in unmeasured terms, and the more active of them at once set about to invent some new scheme to glvo the reverend gentleman more trouble. It was first proposed to gi t the school girl who preferred the charge to go before a magistrate and make oath to her state ment, so that he might be arrested upon the chargc of adultery, but lor some reason was aban doned : ami this evening they declare that on Mon day they will have him indicted by the Grand Jury. COMMENTS OP THE PnKSS The AnuTiixin. which Is the brains and spirit of the prosecution, the proprietors of which Dr. Hus ton has sued for libel, laying his damages at iloo.Ooo, had an editorial in the afternoon edition characterizing the trial as a mockery of Justice and declaring the whole community shocked by the un- i expected verdict. There Is a great diversity of sentiment. In regard to the investigation: but the justice of tho verdict may be considered when it Is known that every one of the committeemen w*s a comparative stranger to the accused. The friends 1 of tne Do* tor declare that he will push the suit i against the American for a further vindication of I his character. THE PTNALE. Thus we hav > the end of an Investigation the like I of which has never been heard In ttds country be fore, and, for the good of Christianity, should never again be brought, especially If the basic is the idle I gnaslp of vindictive neighbor*. The result of the i action of the committee Is final, so far as the 1 Church Is concerned, and reinstates Dr. Huston as a minister In good standing, and he may at any time resume bis (unctions should he desire to do so.

LOUISIANA. Finale of the Democratic State Convention. The Convention a Perfect Pandemonium? Load Threats of Vengeance Against the Baformera? How the Dignified New Party Outwitted the Old Standby*? Withdrawal of Del egates in Disgnst? The State Nomi nation*? D. D. McEnery (1) for Governor? The Adjourn ment Sine Die. Nkw oki. bans, June 8, 1872. The Convention wan to meet at ten o'clock, but the delegated did not come to time. A good many were caucusing over the ticket, especially the city men, who were alarmed by the evident signs of insurrection against tho arrangements of the Con ference Committee. Tho business had been inju diciously contrived, but it was too evident that tho little knot of so-called reformers had outwitted tho democrats. The President of the Reform Conven tion, who had proclaimed the dissolution of the democratic party, and who is supposed to be a Grant man, was placed at tho head of the ticket. As there were several democratic Bourbons who wanted this nomination and who were therefore very hostile to the Warmoth alliance, the commit tee's choice had the effect of arousing general disgust. ORBBLY'a FRIENDS PPPREIIKNSIVt. The Greeley men Raw in it a scheme to throw the State for Grant. Tho last ditchres thought that the dignity of the party had been sacrificed by making such concession to a small circle or otnc^-huntiug reformers, and the Warmoth coalitionists were op posed to it on general principles. The latter were the only persons really pleased with the support, because tbey soon discovered that it was calcu lated to forward their views. Consequently, when the Convention met this morning, there was a general opinion that the report would be beaten. The early hours of the session were taken up with oratorical elocutions for and against the nomination. CONDEMNATION OP NEGKO RlfLH. Reeves, of Texas, made a speech, In which he drew a fearful plcturo of the condition of affairs in his parish under negro rule. He was followed by Judge Eagan, who favored the ticket endorsement on tho grounds of honesty, capacity and avail ability. McCall followed on the same side. The previous question was now called, and amid intense excitement the ballot proceeded ; it resulted in a defeat of the Conference report by a vote of 147 to 12(1. HANDIGO EXPLODES HIS BOMBSHELL. Mr. Sanuioo then took the iloor, and said that in consideration of the fact that the Convention was now at the same point where it commenced, he therefore offered the following resolution : ? Resolved, Tlmt In some of the possible, it not probable, action of the democratic party at the approaching Haiti more Convention, In declining to nominate a third candi date for the Presidency, and of the endorsement of the Cincinnati nomination*, the present Rxecutlvo Committee of the democracy of Louisiana are instructed to call a new Convention, to he held at Baton Rouge on the tlrst Monday in September next in which our friends or the reform party and all the elements of opposition to (tell er al Grant are invited to participate, when a State ticket will ho nominated; aud this Convention do now adjourn rtne die. THE RESULT OF THIS MANIFESTO. This produced intense excitement. Hunt sprung to his ioet aud pronounced it an insult, and for a while political pandemonium prevailed ; men were on their feet wildly gesticulating, and the lobby was loud In applause. Many regarded the resolution as a virtual abandonment of the democratic party, and it was accordingly voted down by a lurge majority. The Oouventlon now fairly boiled over with rage and excitement. Excited speakers pro tested ugaiust killing the democratic party; mo tions, resolutions, substitutes nnd points or order followed one another in inexplicable turmoil, the Chairman's hammer keeping up a lively but useless tattoo. When affairs calmed down a better feeling prevailed. A general expression or feeling was in dulged in to the extent, that too mueh enmity and bitter reeling had been raised in the present Con voli tion to permit any proper or Judicious understand ing to be arrived at. The disorder continued ror over an hour, when the previous question was called, and a motion to go into nominations pre vailed. IUSGT7STEI) DELEGATES WITHDRAW. The delegation from East Feliciana then an nounced their formal withdrawal, feeling confident that a straight-out democratic nomination was equivalent to defeat. Mr. McEnery appealed to them to remain, uselessly. The Nachltoches dele gation then withdrew, and Anally the parish of Lafayette. THE STATE NOMINATIONS. Nominations for a Gubernatorial candidate were declared In order, aud they turned up as plentiful us bugs in June. No election on the tlrst ballot. On tho second f>. D. McEnery, of Ouachita, was nominated as the candidate for Governor. B. K. Jonas, of Orleans, was upon the second ballot nomi nated for Lieutenant Governor. Afterwards Allen Jewel was nominated for Audi tor ; H. I). Ogden, of Orleans, for Attorney General : Robert M. Lusher, of Orleans, for Superintendent of Public Education, and Alex. Bowman, of Caddo, lor Secretary of State. ADJOURNMENT. After the nominations some business of minor importance was transacted, Including votes of thanks to the oftlcers, and then the Convention adjourned sine dip. The Baltimore delegates go unlnstrnoted. The voice or the Convention has produced general dis satisfaction, and only tho lire-eaters have any hopes oi success. In the opinion or the majority of the Convention, particularly among members from the country parishes. It Is generally admitted that to day's proceedings amount to a virtual disruption of the party In this state. A movement has already been Instituted among the disaffected democrats, looking to the formation of a liberal party upon the Cincinnati platform, which will swallow all clemeuts opposed to General Grant, and hold u State Convention III August or September. To this course many of the prominent dele gates remaining in Convention are already pledged. THE REFORM CONVENTION. The Reformer* Adjourn Amid Great To- j mult? Horrified and Kxaaperated by the j Action of the Democrata? No Nomina- ' (Ion*? An Addreaa to the People? The ' Chairman'! Significant Speech Before the Adleaa. New Orleans, June 8, 1872. The Reform Convention was called to order at noon to-day. Personal explanations and bun- | combe speeches occupied it# time for about an nour, when It took a recess, awaiting the action of the Democratic Convention In regard to the con ference committee and Joint report on nomina tions. During the session a motion to adjourn sine die was tabled by a small majority. Reassembling at half-past two P. M., Mr. Fenner J offered a resolution to adjourn uutil June IS, and a lively debate sprung up, in which amendments and ' substitutes were offered in profusion. While the I Chair was endeavoring to extricate itself from the , tangle news arrived that the Democratic Conven- , tion had rejected the Joint nominations and were then proceeding to form a straight-out ticket. THIS WAS A BOM HSII R I.I. POR THE KEPURMKRS. and the blank of dismay which spread over the ' faces of the delegates was excessively comical to behold. Of course they all flew Into a rage and 1 roared in a terribly indignant manner at the rude j rebuff thus administered. All were on the floor at once, talking, protesting and declaring. Symptoms of a serious row were apparent, when suddenly the Chairman quieted the Atorm by announcing that the Convention had ad journed until half-past seven o'clock this evening, in order, he said, to find out what the democrats really did mean by their strange conduct. In uproarlous humor the delegates then scattered, amid shouts of laughter, cat-calls and ironical cries, giving the whole affair the semblance of a pro digious farce. ? | Evening Neaalon. In the evening they reassembled again, and, not- ' withstanding the fwelteriug heat, crowded the liall to suffocation. A notification of the action of the Democratic Convention was soon laid before Ihem In the form of a communicailon through the Chairman, oti" speaker moved it he received with out coinmcnt : another that It be laid on the table, and a third that It lx* rejected, which was received with applause. Then the orators unloaded their respective cargoes of disgust. One pronounced TIIK DEMOCRATIC URTY DKHRADKI), and said it had erected It* tombstone ; another said it was preposterous in the small number of demo crats to propose a slate for the great party of re- 1 formers, and still another. Ogdcn, refused scorn- | fully the nomination of Attorney fleneral. They carried the house with them, and In a rush of ex- I cltement, breaking out In yells and groans, the j resolution refusing to ratify the nominations was adopted. Resolutions were then passed ordering i the State Executive Committee to prepare AN ADDRESS TO TIIK PKOi'l.K OP UMIS1ANA, | setting forth their grievances and the shabby 1 treatment they had reiafrfl and affairs com mcncert quieting down, when another wii raised by Kerr attain throwing In tho old lire-brand. This rime it was in the shape of a resolution authorizing the Executive Committee to co-operate with all other liberal and conservative elements. "That smells of Warmoth," shouted an irate delegate. Kerr protested that he was horrified at the sug gestion, and then proceeded to make a good and sensible speech in favor or his resolution. Kennard opposed this resolution as an impertinence, aud it was withdrawn. THIS CHAIRMAN PAVOKA (IK AST. The Convention then adjourned, subject to call, when Chairman Williamson made a speech decid edly in favor of (Irani, much to the disapprobation of a majority of tho members. And so ends another of those political paroxysm through which the democratic party of Louisiana is now passing? to death or resurrection. YACHTING. The Regattas of the New York, Brooklyn and Atlantic Yacht Club*. THE YACHTS AFLOAT. The "merry month of June" may fairly be deemed the yachting month par excrtlttruw of the season, as, although the yachting season is said to commence In May, it Is more a month devoted to preparatory movements than to action. This month we shall have about twelve regattas in these waters and as many more in the neighborhood of Boston. The coming week brings lively times among the smaller yacht clubs, as Wednesday and Thursday have been set apart for the regattas of the Columbia Yacht Club and the Jersey City Yacht Club. These clubs, however, are mainly represented by small boats, and their regattas, although of much Interest to a certain clique, do not attract the attention of the general public as much as tho annual carnival of the large schooner and sloop yachts owned by the New York, Brooklyn and Atlantic Yacht Clubs. TIIK NRW TORI YACHT OUH have decided to hold their annual regatta upon Thursday June '20, over the usual regatta course. At a recent meeting of the club It was de cided to sail the regatta under the new system of measurement based upon the cubical con tent, and consequently tho measurer will have a merry time getting the measurement of the fleet before the day of the regatta. The club have also decided to get off by a flying start., and they have abolished the rule limiting the number of men each yacht shull carry. The tug Schultz has been char tered for the uso of the regatta committee and the press, and the Magenta will bo freighted with the club members and their friends. There will be two prises In each, one on actual time and one on time allowance, but a rule has been passed preventing any one yacht winning both prizes. The regatta this year will be very Interesting as, although there are not many new yachts, altera tions nave been made In some of last year's flyers that it W calculated will much improve their sailing qualities. The contest between the Magic, Columbia, Madeleine, Tidal Wave, Resolute, Wauderer, Dreadnaught and the new schooner yacht Viking will be looked forward to with much interest. The Columbia nnd Madeleine have had several little spurts to gether, and although the latter got a little the best of the spurt on one occasion, the Columbia more than regained her laurels two days later, as she beat the Madeleine about twenty minutes In u fifteen-mile race. The Resolute is also said to be sailing very well, and the fleet little Magic will, doubtless, appear in her old form aud bring back to the minds of the spectators a scene of two years ago, when she won the most glorious regatta ever sailed in these waters. The sloops Oracle, Addle, Vixen and Kate will have a new antagonist to meet in the Vision, a new sloop, now belug completed for Mr. Alexandre. THK BROOKLYN YACHT CLfB have decided to hold their Club and Union Re gatta on Saturday. June ?2, and as the club now musters fifty-six yachts In the fleet, they will doubtless make a picturesque display. The race will be sailed over their regular course, and under time allowance, unless based upon length and breadth alone, as they find the measurer will not hare time t<? measnre the fleet upon the sys tem based upon the cubical content. Two steamers will accompany the yachts round the course, one carrying the members of the club and their friends, and the other bearing the judges and the press. Captain Hellng's new sloop yacht, the Meta, will make her llrst appearance in public at this regatta, and the Oracle and Addle will have to look out, with CUCh S big antagonist ill the race. TH> ATLANTIC YACHT Cl.ru will bold their seventh annual regatta on Tues day, June 18. The course for schooners and llrst class sloops will be from the anchorage off Hay Midge down through the Narrows, to and around a stakeboat at Southwest Spit, thence to and around t lie lightship, rounding the same from the southward, thence home, going to southward and westward of beacon on Romer shoal. For second class sloops the same course, to and around stakeboat at South west .spit; thence to and around a stakeboat near a buoy in Gedney Channel, rounding the same from the southward ; thence home, passing to the west ward of beacon on Romer shoal. The third class sloops will sail the same course to and around the stakeboat at Southwest Spit; thence home. The steamer Magenta, carrying the guests of the club, will accompany the yachts around the course. Mr. Thayer's new schooner yacht Triton, built by Herres hoff, of Bristol, will make her first appearance In public at this regatta. The race for TllfJ WALLACK Ct'P will be sailed on Monday, June 24, by the yachts of the New York Yacht Club. It Is not decided over what course, but as the outside course debars the public to a great extent from witnessing the coil test Mr. Wallack will probably have the race sailed over the regular regatta course. THE WESTERN TOBNADO. Ureal Devastation In Central Illinois? 1 Railroad Property Damaged to a Large Extent and the Itivera Overflowing. CniCAGO, 111., June 8, 1872. Further reports concerning the great storm of Thursday niglit In Central Illinois show that an Im mense amount of damage was done In Peoria, Ful- i ton, Knox and other counties In that section of the ; State, The devastation oi bridges on tne country I roads has been almost universal. In the city of j Peoria fences and trees were blown down and the cellars tilled With water. Every railroad leading out of that city suffered more or less, and no trains left there yesterday. The Chicago, Burlington and (juiucy Railroad li&d about lour miles of its track ami many bridges swept awav. Tho Toledo, Peoria ami Wabash road also suffered severely, losing one bridge of 160 feet in length and the entire roadbed In a numlier of places. A large force of men has been set to work repairing damages, and there will be but little interruption to travel. In the town of Hilton the damages are fearful; the town Is almost entirely under water, and the barns, Stock, Ac., have been swept, miles away. The most singular circumstance of the storm Is the running up stream of the Illinois River; the im mense volume of water that poured into the stream has created a back-water, and there Is a strong [ current running northward. The river last night, j was still rising rapidly, ami fears of serious damage from this source were entertained. The Tornado in Ohio. Cincinnati, June 8, 1872. A terrible tornado passed Bcilefontalne, Ohio. 1 and vicinity last night, tearing up trees and un rooting houses in the towns of Degraf and Quincey, i Ohio. The latter place was nearly destroyed, and flftv persons were injured. At Degraf ten or twelve buildings were blown down, the Methodist, church being utterly destroyed. Mrs. Roll and two chil dren were killed. Fatal Effccta of the Storm. Toledo, Ohio, June 8, 1872. The body of William Black was found this after noon in the ruins of the building blown down by the storm yesterday. THE NATIONAL GAME.

Numerous other measures were disposed of yesterday, and tho general opinion now is (hut the long-mooted extra session will not bo called. At ten P.

The Senate Enforcement Bill?The Action of the House? An Arrangement to Heifer It to a Conference Committee. The Enforcement bill, which the Senate put as an amendment on the Civil Sundry Appropriations act came to tho House from the Senate at au early hour to-day, and the entire time has been spent In en deavoring to get tho bill i?rore the House for ac tion. The opposition has marshalled Its forces in old style, and presented a solid front against the passage of the bill. Efforts were made on both sides to effect a compromise, tho majority offering to non-concur in the Senate amendments and to send tho bill to a committee of conference. The minority refused to accede to this, for Hie reason that If it came back from the committeo of conference with these amend ments agreed to a majority could then pass tho bill. A conference report helm? one of tho highest privileges of the House, tho minority offered to ac cept the proposition of the majority on condition that any portions of the bill that should bo po litically objectionable should be considered as com ing under the two-third rule. To this the repub licans refused to accede. After spending the day in diia'.ory motions, excepting the passage of a few bills, au arrangement was come to at a quarter to ten to-night by which the democrats agreed to accept tho proposition of non concurring in the Senate amendments, urwl the reference to a conference committee, on condition that tho House should take a recess until eight o'clock on Monday morning, when the conference committee will be ready to report, and then, in case the objec tionable Senate amendments should still be in the bill, the democrats Intend to filibuster the remain, ing four hours of the session, so as to defeat the bill. Hut there is now every reason to believe that the Senate will recede from their amendments, which are considered unprecedented In the history of legislation. The conference committee on the part of the Senate are Senators Edmunds, Cole and Stevenson, and on the part of the House, Messrs. Garfield, Palmer and Nlblack. There are various opinions as to an extra session being called, but the prevailing opinion to-night is that it will be unnecessary, it Is understood that the President does not consider himself justified in calling an extra session, as it is the duty of Con gress to perfect necessary legislation lu its own time. !Vew 1 ork Republican Association. The New York Republican Association, at a meet ing to-night called to ratity the Philadelphia nomi nations, unanimously passed a resolution of sym pathy with the worfclngmen on strike for eignt hours In the State, and protested in advance against any tampering with the eight-hour laws of ( ongress and the state Legislature. Departure of the Steamer Fannie, an Alleged Cuban Filibuster. Mention was made lu these despatches of Thurs day that the representatives of the Spanish Lega tion had called attention to the fitting out of neve nil vessels suspected of being Intended to aid tho Cuban insurrection. The steamer Fannie, an ocean propeller of :i27 tons, Speed master, one of the sus pected vessels, left Haltimore yesterday with a cargo or coal and lumber for Turk's Island. The cause for believing that she was to aid the Cubans Is stated In the communication or the Col lector ot the Port to the Secretary or the Treasury. The Fannie was recently purchased rrom Brandt A- Co. by the rormer owner or tho Hornet, a pledge having been given that the Hornet should never be permitted to violate our neutrality laws again. Her owner made haste to get her off Ins hands, and with the proceeds purchased the Fannie and shipped the crew or the Hornet, and was all ready to leave port when the complaint was made. She was thoroughly searched rrom stem to stern by the customs revenue ottlcers, with the view or discovering arms or munitions or war, or what racilitles she might have for taking them on hoard rrom another ves sel. The examination was entirely satisfactory, yet i it was claimed that there was a reasonable sus- i Plclon ror detaining her. The Treasury officials stretched the law to Hie utmost to please the I Spanish Minister, but It was not broad enough to i detain the Fannie under the circumstances. There I was nothing Irregular In her papers or ownership Finally on Thursday It was decided to allow her to i clear lor Turk's Island. For lear, however, that she might take on board contraband or war. in the waters or the United States, the revenue steamer Northerner was ordered to accompany her down the bay, past the Capes out on to the high seas, where it j? expected that a Spanish gun boat will exercise rurther surveillance until the Fannie disposes of her cargo. This vessel was built for a blockade runner, but Is not a swift sailer Tho Spanish authorities are confident of capturing her In their waters. No decision has vet been made In regard to two more propellers loading ror West India ports. EUR0PEAN_MARKET3. j Losnos Mow** Maribt.? Losdojt, June *-2 P.

The arguments in the cane of William Heath, charged with perjury by Stephen V. White, a Wall street broker, In having testified falsely la a civil suit liefore a referee in which he (White) waa de fendant. was argued before Justice Ledwlth, at the Jefferson Market Police Court, yesterday, Messrs. J. D. Townsend and II. W. Deviue appearing for the defence and Assistant District Attorney Suili van for the prosecution. The facta of the case have already appeared In the HKaam at different times as the examination progresacd. Mr. Devine moved fof a dismissal of the case on the ground that the evidence failed to establish any case against the defendant. He further contended, in the first plaoe, that tho only Issue to which the alleged falae statements could have any reference was the issuo presented by the answers of White aud Woodward, to the effect that on July lfl, 1870, Heath agreed to assume Voting's loss of $70, tutu and his proportion of tho stock, and that as the alleged statements were eoufessedly made on July in they could have no hearing upon au agreement not claimed to have been made until the 18th. After recapitulating Mr. Heath's testimony, he contended that It was not contradicted In any material point by the prosecuting witnesses ; that, on the contrary, their evldeuco confirmed it In tho most remarkablo manner upon all the material Issues, especially noting the fact that the witnesses nil agree that the ouly arrangement made in refer ence to the Heading pool was that Heath was to look to each meiubur of the |tooi tor his share of tho margin or capital and not for Ills share of the loss, and, further, that the overwhelming preponderance of tho testimony was that the only arrangement made on July 15 was that Heath A Co. were to carry the stock, without additional margin, Itor the benefit of tho pool, not that they had agreed to assume It or the lorn on It. Conn Bel further commented on the dincrepancy l?e tween the testimony of Tasker Marwln anil that of Woodward and White In reference to the conver sation at Marvin's office, and claimed that If Mr. Marvin's statement were true, It was an absolute contradiction of White and Woodward's testimony, and the prosecution must fail also In the fact that Woodward and White had paid Young $12, MO for his assistance tuid his testimony In the suit before tlio referee and before Judge Lea with, and claimed that this teatlmouy would be credited, and alao animadverted upon White's advice to Heath to go in and bay the stock when bo knew that Heath bad nothing left but hia credit on which to operate. The threats 01 Woodward and Whito to leave Heath A Co. saddled with 62,-JOO shares of Heading, costing $2,800,000, in wlilcb a loss of over $100,000 had been Incurred by the pool, were also commented on with much earnestness, and tho lact that the prosecution avoid charging Heath with testifying ralsely upon the Issues, and sought to make a case against him by selecting an Interview whon ho was alone with Woodward and White, was also dwelt upon, anil the liability of any man having a business controversy with two or more unscrupulous adversaries to have such a charge made against him was urged upon Judge Ledwlth. Assistant District Attorney Bulll van, in Bam ming up for the prosecution, endeavored to fress upon the mind of Justice Ledwlth that he defence had taken a most extraordinary course, and he could not, after the argu ments offered by the counsel Mr tho ao fence. believe In lils own mind that the original complaint should be revoked. Mr. Sullivan con fined hla argument principally to the 15th day of July, 18T0, in which tnoy charged he (Heath) testi fied falsely as to the conversation held In Marvin A Co. 'b office on that dRy, and that the parties Interested in the joint stock of Heading were heavily involved and had to resort to some means to carry themselves through and save themselves from bankruptcy; that White, Woodward and Marvin testified that Heath was In Marvin A Co.'s office on the 10th day of July, while the defendant testified to the contrary; and he could not surmise bow the testimony of one man should overthrow that of tbeae respectable business men ; ono of them (Mar vin) having no pecuniary interest In tbe matter, either one way or tho other. At the conclusion oi Mr. Sullivan's remarks, the summing up was post poned until to-morrow afternoon, at half-past lour o'clock, when Mr. Townsend will reply to the argu ments of Mr. Sullivan, and submit tho case to Justice Ledwlth for decision.
