And now it may be said, with certain reservations and exceptions, that the Jubilee will prove a suc eenB. Whether it was because of the delightftil weather which prevailed or the fact that this wan eminently a Prussian celebration, or for any other reason, there waH a big attendance of notables, for eign and domestic, to-day. Bettor than this, there was a larger assemblage of the common ! people, each of whom paid a five-dollar bill for admittance, and the presence of whom warrants a belief that the Jubilee is becoming pecuniarily popular, on Monday there could not have been more than 7,000 people, beside the chorus, who occupicd seats in the Coliseum. Yesterday there was an addition of fifty per cent to that number and to-day the audience was Increased threefold. Reckoning from this basis, as the Yankees say, if the audiences continue to multiply for a few days there will be a great jam in Boston before the close ofthe week. Really, there is getting to be a great deal of enthusiasm about this Boston Jubilee. Leaving altogether out of the question the facto that It is an advertising speculation; that the grinding of sundry individual axes is the principal business of a part of the Board of Managers; that, many of the geese in authority are endeavoring to feather their own nests at the expense of anybody who has feathers to spare, and that. Boston, in its endeavors to excel its previous endeavors in a musical way, has, practically speaking, "slopped over." There can be iittle doubt that, con sidering results as they are presented to-day, this self-same international series of concerts, which have been villifled so extensively and with such little effect, will ultimately result In a grand suc cess for those who contrived and are carrying out Its objects, as well as affording infinite satisfaction to the general public. The audience of to-day was possessed of far more accurate and com prehensive knowledge of music, perhaps, than that ?f any ?( its predecessors this week. The Germans, M everybody knows, Is a musical nation In every ?enee of the word. When listening to the rendition of the music o' "der Vaterland" performed by their fellow countrymen they are enthusiastic to a re markable degree. Some of the Instruments, how ever, have fallen Into disgrace. The poor drum, with all Ita rotundity and Imposing dimensions, is one of them, and now there la no one In Boston "so poor as to do It rever ence." What will be done with it, is a question much easier propounded than answered. One proposition strikes me as original, If not prac ticable, that Is, to make a trotting course of it and to invite the best horses In New Eugland, on some off day of the Jubilee, to enter for mile heats, best three In five; a prize pumpkin ami a purse and some Boston crsckers for the second horse, which second horse, by the way, has not yet been entered. THE AUDIENCE. The audience to-day, as has been intimated, was largely composed of the German element; in fact not only ail the Teutonic Hostoniaus were assem bled, but others from New York and other distant Mints were present as large delegations of the German tribe. Their special enthusiasm over the various features of the programme was very ?narked, and the balance of the audi ence oonld not well reft'aln from joining In the general plaudits. During tue Intervals between the flrst and second parts the lager beer ' department was a special attraction, and tlion- I eands ol glasses of that invigorating beverage quenched the thirst of not only the exuberant Dutchman, but of the descendants and rep- 1 resentatives ui all the acknowledged civilized cations of the world. Those who never be- \ fore saw lager, drank it now, and such '? a clinking of glasses, such a wholesome and wholesale manifestation of kindly feeling, and such ? ? love feast generally was never before known. The scene here, as well as in the Jubilee proper, was Impressive, even If In a degree intemperate, and sober mingled in it with a feeling of happiness i which was involuntary and spontaneous. THE INTERNATIONAL RIVALRY. After the overwhelming success of Godfrey yes terday, and the frantic enthusiasm with which ; they were received, the chief Interest of to-day's ' concert centered In the German Band, Kaiser Franz Grenadier regiment, from Berlin. As i woa predicted yesterday, the international spirit Is now fully aroused, and as each band will appear their countrymen will flock In vast numbers to heur them and give them a hearty welcome. Pitch Is the case to-day. The Germans were out in strong force, and the galleries, which were almost empty on the flrst two days, presented a gladdening sight, being pretty well filled. The music commenced with that glorious old choral A STRONG FORTRESS IS OlTl OOP, the same with which the Jubilee of I860 began. The sturdy old hymn of Luther rolled our Its majestic measures with more grandeur and solemnity than ever, and through the Coliseum and out ou the Kpacious ground adjoining swept the tldtl wave ol twenty thousand voices, thrilling every heart, hushing even the shrill whistle of an Albauv train as it shot past towards the depot, and booming ou the wings of the wind, announcing far and wide that the third concert of the jubilee had begun. TUE OVERTURE TO "TANNUAUSKR." Closely following came the noble over! lire to "Tannhansen," which was played bv the full or chestra of 1.000 musicians. The effect of the strings Is the (lorbl and beautiful figure thai names the Pilgrims' Chorus at the end of the overture was ?urpasslngly grand, on account of the immense body of tone and the evenness of the ensemble. The winil instruments are very weak in this orchestra and are all but submerged In the ocean of sound Around them. Gllraorc conducted this work with commendable skill and judgment. The oratorio choruses In the programme, in which Zerrahu wielded the Mton, had too much of the psalm* singing odor about It. It may be necessary, with ?uch an unwleldlv mass of singers and players, to take as slow a temps as possible; but It spoils the work aud turns liaudel and Mendelssohn into caut tag preachers. STRAUSS' "MORNING I. RAVES" WALTZ. Strauss conducted his own "Morning Leaves" waltz with the characteristic lire and ilan that made him such a favorite at his first appearance. He Is a remarkable little man. nervous, quick, ex citable, and he throws himself heart and soul Into his work. The orchestra becomes Infected with his enthusiasm and the tone becomes warmer, the en *e?i !>U> more perceptible and the temp* quicker . when each player sees that nimble bow, waving , arms and (lushed face of the great monarch of the | ballroom. The professional operatic chorus made another hit In the "Blessing of the Daggers," from the "Huguenots.'' one of Meyerbeer's gramlest con- ! oerted pieces. ERAN7, Airr. Franz Abt conducted "When the Swallows Home ward Fly." and seemed to give the audience much ? ratification, to Judge from the hearty applause hat greeted him, but to the critical ear such a melody sung by a vast body of vocalists on a Jubilee occasion is entirely out of place, one of his own ^matchless quartets would be preferable. THAT PIANO MONSTROSITY. A piano solo by the irrepressible hendel was In fllG'etl on the audience. From the extreme end of the gallery facing the big organ the effect of this solo was very funny. The little man had worked himself up into a state of excitement approaching to frenzy, aud his body was in cease less melon. As for the piece he played, It was not mentkiaed In the programme, anri considering that I heard snly an occasional clang In the shape of a chord which sounded for all the worla like a railroad aplJlson, I *jhI! be compelled to let It pass. Home Mc<nwi<lcrate and reckless people venture upon an eneotc, und ItVrr Bcndel responded with a left-handed sold, thereby completely extinguishing all the hopes and' expectations of Wehll, who Is to be the next vlctlni of this Jubilee piano. Wehll ^pitted aU hi* depeuUtJBVo his left, and here a taring Intruder steps in and taken all the wind out of bin Balls. MADAM* PFSCH I A -LKPTN KB HA NO Proches' air and variations even better than on Tuesday. She haw, ludeed, a very remark ablo voice, and uses It with rare eflfcct. In one of the variations she makex a jump of two octaves with out any apparent effort. If she could only harmon ize and blend the registers of her voice she would be a perfect artist. But to come to the grand feature of the ooncert, the HIRST APPKAIIANCR OK THK PKI'PHI AN BAND. When this tine-looking body ofmusicians emerged from the depths beneath the stage, and their scarlet plumes appeared In the middle aisle, between the serried rank* of the chorus, a wild cheer went up irom 10,000 throats, and the band took their sta tions in iront of the stage amid enthusiasm not inferior to that which greeted Godfrey and his men. Heinrlch saro, the leader, a tan soldierly looking specimen of a Prussian grenadier, flrm aH a rot.)t and erect as a pillar, then took the baton. The se lection was u fantasia by Wteprccht, founded on themes from the "Prophete." It Is rather Wagner ish In character, and very long and elaborate. It save a favorable opportunity of testing the power 01 the hand, and was most admirably played. VVlth 1 out possessing that beautiful rich tone of the British I Grenadiers hand, the Prussians displaved an inti mate acquaintance with every detail of the music, 1 color, expression and singleness of purpose that made THIIR PKKFOKMANCR AB80LPTKLY ORLHJHTFITL. (ieunan players are invariably add!*' ted to re garding quantity as the tlrst element of tone, and thereby they cannot remove from their playing that harshuess of tone which is supposed to be unavoid able in brass instruments. Godfrey's Band is the only one I ever heard, with the exception of the Austrian Imperial Baud, that can give a velvety richness of tone to everything they play. A tornado of cheers brought the Prussians forward again, and this time they paid their respects to Weber, as Godfrey did the day be fore, by puying the overture to "Oberon." An other enoore introduced a fantasia on "L'Afrlcalne," which was superbly rendered. Heller's German Hymn was next given by the chorus, orchestra and Die Prussian baud, and the latter acknowledged tne l?y 11 spirited rendition of "The Red, White and Blue-'-' ?2tl " Yankee Poodle." The chorus and atidiencd became coiiT"!r""1 e*" cltcinont, and the hand had to play TIIB UhORIOI'S "WACHT AM RIIRIN" before they were allowed to depart. Then the leader turned round as If on parade, took off his hat gravely, sainted the audience and the long line of scarlet plumes and bruided uniforms disap peared amid the waving of handkerchiefs and the hearty three tlirtes three of the delighted listeners. the kmpkkok William's oounbt quahtrt played a couple of selections, but produced no marked impression. The Coliseum is hardly a suit able place for inusic of t^4" description. One very beautiful feature of tills Mrdcert was the "Pizzicato Polka," by Strauas, pla.ved toy the entire body of strings, and led, of course, bv the composer. The irrepressible "Anvil Chorus" was given, as it is likely its absence from the programme would create a riot. To-morrow Is to be devoted to I<a Belle Prance, and if the Guide Kepublicainc Band retain any of the spirit of the old Garde Impcrlale Dan Godfrey will have to look out for his laurels. The Immortal "Marsellalse" will be given in a Btyle such as only may be heard on the eve of a revolution in Paris. The chorus seem to settle down to work with earnestness, and there is a marked improvement, every day in this department.. The altos are par ticularly worthy of praise. To-night the Germans are in great glee over the success of their compat riots, ami the lager nows unceasingly. To-morrow will be the opportunity of the French baud, and the enthusiasm will probably be still greater. PERSONAL INTELLIGENCE. Judge Israel H. Spencer, of Syracuse, is at the Fifth Avenue Hotel.

A Grand Conglomeration at Baton Bongo? Pinch backites, Kelloggites, Billingites- Conclusion to Bnrj the Hatehet and Bhont Lustily for Grant? The Proceedings Yesterday. Baton Rouoh, La., June 10, 1872. Upwards of three tlioueand people scddenly preci pitated Into this little town has given It quite a holi day appearance. Three or four boats arrived from New Orleans yesterday loaded down with social equality, and the night was spent in eancuainK and canvassing. The distinguished citizens consequently looked a little jaded this uiornlug, bat still boiled over cbeerftilly with politics and patriotism. As most of the delegates camo on duplicate and triplicate, owing to the many frac tional differences existing, the morning was spent In perfecting a compromise. All the gubernatorial candidates were early on hand, and established separate headquarters. Kellogg, with his Custom House mends, occupies tempora rily a fine private residence; Billings ditto, while Pinchback (both colored) and Flanders entertain on their steamboats. Strong delegations of democrats and one of reformers arc also In the field. Tne former endeavor to secure the nomination of a negro ticket; the latter to bargain for a few offices. It was early evident that money was being freely nsed, and the active agency of many old demo cratic wire-pullers indicated the struggle to be a desperate one. lip to this morning Billings was by mr Htiongejr candidate, with Pinchback as his principal contestant; during the day Kellogg and Flanders succeeded In effect.^ A - . ,s FUSION OF ALL CONFLICTING INTHRB8T# cxcept Pinchback against Billings. This was the condition of atTalrs when the Convention assem bled, the compromise said to have toecn effected having determined on Kellogg for Governor, Plnch, back Lieutenant Governor, John Kay Attorney General, and B. F. Flanders Superintendent or Pub lic Education. The i'inchback detonation came here expecting to nominate a separate ticket throughout ; but this coalition modified their plans, and thev as sembled at twelve merely to appoint a conference committee, adjourning over until seven I'. M. When the regular Convention assembled the Billings peo ple were furious with disappointment, and loudly threatened to unite on I'inchback to defeat Kel logg. of course the nomination of a colored man for Governor is generally regarded as securing a defeat, and is deprecated by all but soreheads. (1HANT KULOOIZKI) AND WAHMOTII DKNOUNCKD. The regnlar Convention assembled at the theatre al. noon. The room is spacious, and as none but delegates arc admitted the intense lieat Is not so severely felt. The hall is ornamented with mot toes eulogistic of Orant and denunciatory of War moth, who evidently has but lew friends left among the colored people. The first, two honrs were spent in effecting a temporary organisation. The Con vention Is composed of whites and blacks, In equal proportion, and is very orderly. On ballot ing for temporary Chairman T. T. Aliavn, co.ored, was elected by a large major ity over E. W. Robinson. The result of the contest Is supposed to be indicative of Billings' defeat. an<J securing the gubernatorial nomination to William Pitt Kellogg. Mr. AUayn, on being conducted to the chair, made a characteristic address, which was greeted with uproarious yells and cheers, llin allusion to Grant culled forth a perfect tempest of applause. riNcrtBACK's back nr. During the afternoon considerable excitement prevailed. The negroes took alarm on observing that only two negroes were on the Kellogg ticket, and a diversion in favor of Billings resulted. Pinch back also kicked in the traces and talked in a hos tile manner to the coalition. The Convention met at eight o'clock and received reports of commit tees without much objection. Those on credentials asking more time prevented the I ransaction of any more business to-night, and the Convention there upon squared itself for an oratorical tournament, which seems to be a favorite African pastime. A committee was despatched IN QUEST OK TUK VARIOUS CANDIDATES for office, with the intention of putting them through their racings, a brass band on band enliven ing the interval which elapsed before the commit tee returned, bearing in triumph Messrs. Kellogg and Billings, who were received with frantic yells, anil "See the Conquering Heroes Come" was given In stentorian tones by the brassiest of bunds. Hil lings toed the forensic scratch first and made a short speech, the. sentiment of which was, may the heat, man win. He said something about the peo ple's prerogatives, platforms and principles, nattered the negroes and declared himself decid edly and determinedly in favor of euorcing all civil rights laws, "economy an honesty. With a tribute to Grant he closed his short but brilliant address. KKl.LOOG NOW STKl'PBD OUT, amid enthusiastic greetings, and sparred a little with the leading issues, and then apologized tor inability to speak, and then waxed eloquent. He spoke encouragingly to the colored people, paid a fine tribute to Lincoln, and went Into ecstasies over Grant's services and prospects. He spoke | about half an hour, and made a deep impression on ; the Convention, which he carried br storm. Other speakers followed in the same strain and worked j up enthusiasm to a fever heat. The Pinchbeck Convention met at eight o'clock Mid adjourned over until to-morrow, in con- , sequence of the other Convention not having com pleted its permanent organisation. MARYLAND. The State Convention Enthusiastically , In Favor of the Chappaqna Sage? j Powerful Delegation Appointed to At tend the National Convention. Baltimore, June 19, 1?72. j There Is no longer room lor doubt as to the posi tion Maryland will occupy in the coming National Democratic Convention, so far as the Cincinnati platform ana nominees are concerned. Her State j Democratic Convention assembled to-day and de- j clared as strongly as possible In favor of both by electing an entire delegation to that Convention enthusiastic for the Sage of Cliappaqua. The gath ering was large and orilerly and the ablest In com position of any that has gathered in the State for years. Joseph T. Karle. who is one of the foremost men from the Eastern shore of the state, known as the nest of the dyed-in-the-wool democracy, was chosen Chairman, and made an ablespeceh in favor of Greeley, which was loudly applauded, and It i was evident from the start that his views were those ol nine-tenths of the democracy of the State. A resolution instructing the delegates elected to urge In the National Convention the nomination of Mr. Greeley was referred to the Committee on Reso lutions, which did not make a report. Some little dissatisfaction was created on this account, but it was all quieted when the full delegation was an nounced, and it was known that not a single man who was not known to be for Greeley had beeu chosen. P. F. Thomas says that the reason why strong resolutions in favor of the endorsement of Greeley were not adopted was becaus'? the leaders of the Greeley movement here thought il best not to dic tate the terms or manner of that endorsement to the National Convention. The entire delegation, both at. large and district, is perhaps the ablest that has ever been seut from the State to u national political gathering. Montgomery Hlalr, ex-Governor Philip, Frank Thomas, Robert Fowler and A. Leo Knott are the delegates at large, ami many of the district dele- i gates arc of equal prominence aud ability. MINNESOTA.

The Convention adjourned until to-morrow arter the appointment of Committees on Resolutions, Repre sentation, Rules, Ac. There Is a strong probability of trouble In the Convention to-morrow upon the question of nominating a State ticket. Many of 1 the delegates want the Convention to adjourn until after the republican ticket Is pnt in the field, and then nominate, while others Insist that If the nominations are not now made they will bolt. Heavy caucusstug is taking place this evening. The Convention is largely attended, but there is a ( great lack of harmony and unity.

MYSTIC PARK EACES. A Large and Brilliant Assemblage on the Grounds ? The Horse* Taking Part ? The Priios? The First Race Won by Rosalind, the Seoond Ri$e by Goldsmith Maid. Boston, June 10, 1872. The Mystic races were continued at the park of that name to day. The traok was in excellent con dltlon, as was evident from the time made by the horses In the 2:24 cluss yesterday, and fast time was anticipated from the celebrated mares Goldsmith Maid and Lucy. Indeed, their fame as trotters was sutllciently powerful to draw a very large attendance of people from the city and the surrounding towns, the steam and horse cars bringing their full complement of people, while large nnmbers reached the Hark by their own con veyances. The occasion was remarkable In couse quence of the excellent trotting of Goldsmith Maid, she making the best time on record? 2 beating her former time at Milwaukee a quarter of a second. TIIB FIRST RACE Was for horses that never beat 2:40, for a pnrsc of $1,000, of which the first horse was to receive $ooo, the second home was to reccive faoo and the third $ioo. first Ileal.? Stuyverson had the pole, Coroner K. second, Brock third, Morris fourth, May Bee firth and Rosalind outside. On getting the word the pole horse broke and went to the rear. Of the others Brock, Morris and Coroner K. had a lively turn for the lead, wliich was Anally taken by the Coroner, Brock next to him. The latter soon fell back a trltle, and Morris went into close company with Coroner K. Rosalind placed herself third Just after passing the qnarter, and the other two went head and head for a considerable distance. Coroner K. drew away a trifle from Nettie Morris, but was soon after forced to a break ; he was soon caught down, however, and kept his lead to the distance, where he made another break, which laBted until he crossed the score, over which he was beaten by Morris a neok. Time, 2 ;80J?. Second Heat.? The friends of Rosalind stuck to her manfully, keeping her a strong lavorlte against the field. Morris made a break directly after the word was given, and May Bee led for a moment, but tho favorite soon placed herself In the leading place. Coroner K. going second, May Bee third. Ro salind had a couple lengths the best of it at the half, Morris having Improved her place to third, Coroner K. going to the rear, lip the straight Hide ami around the upper turn t hoy all cloned with Rosa lind, who was going cattily, with the licat well in liand.

On being sent off Rosalind went to the front, where she remained during the entire heat, the principal contest belug for the second and third places. Coroner K. was the second horse home, but owing to his breaks, which were all In Ills favor, lie was set back and the placc given to Nettle Morris. Time, 2::?V<. Ftmrth Heat.?

The reputation of these celebrated inures was such as to create great excitement, and their appearance upon the track was eagerly looked for. The Maid was the first to appear, and as the elder Doble opened her out up and down the stretch she was greeted with applause from the spectators in the Grand Stand. Lucy was similarly honored, ami after a few moments' preliminary work they were called" up for the First Merit. ? Lucy won the pole and had a length the best of the send-off when the word was given on the second trial. At the lower turn the Maid j was on even terms with Lucy, and they made the ' quarter in thirty-six seconds.

The word was given 011 the second ] trial, the Maid being near an open length in ad vance, and both going very fast. Around the turn 1 the Maid opened two lengths the best of It, and had a lead of that distune*; at the quarter in thirty four and a naif seconds.

Lucy trotted very squarely all the I way. and as they entered the homestretch she put on a burst of speed that carried her closer to the Maid than she had been since the mile began. Mr. j Doble cslled on the Maid and she responded with a | tremendous clash from the distance (lag to the wire, 1 and as she crossed the score three lengths in a<l- I vance those who had held watches on her were confident she had beaten herself, and when the , judges hung out the time as 2:16)4? the fastest on record? there was loud applause from the spec- ' tutors. There were Ave watches In the stand. Four of them made It in 2:10^; the other stopped 011 2:17. Third Meat.? The mares both cooled out excel lently well, coining up fresh and speedily.

The Legislature was convened in extra session at noon to-day, to either redlstrlct the state or amend the present law so that four additional Presidential electors may be legally elected. Gov ernor Drown sent in a message recommending amendment of the law so that additional electors may Ih< elected at large. The Senate adopted a concurrent resolution to adjourn at four o'clock P.

The (ioYcrRur'B Action in the McCunn Case Criticised by I'ounxc]. Argument for and Against Postpone ment of the Trials. Al MANY, June 10, 1872. After roll call this morning, to which twenty ' Seuators responded, the Clerk read the answer of 1 Judge I'rlndle to the charge** preferred against him. He denies all the charges made. A lengthy dlscus Hlon followed between Senators an to the time when tne trial of Judge I'rlndle should proceed, but It was tlnally reHolved, on motion of Senator D. P. Wood, that the trlul be set down for Wednesday, June 2e, at four o'clock P. M. M'OUHN'8 DASH. The remainder of the morning session of the Senate wan spent discussing the question of the , message of the (iovernor accompanying the charges ; of the Bar Association In Judge McCunn 's cane, ! which message It is claimed Is not In accordance ! with the requirements of the judiciary article of the constitution of the State, the eleventh section of which reads as follows:? "Judges of the Court of Appeals and Justice* of the Supreme Court may be removed by concurrent resolutions of both houses of the Legislature If two-thirds or all the members electcd to each house concur therein. All Judicial oitlcers except Justices oi the Peace and In- j fertor Courts not of record, may be removed by the , Senate on the recommendation of the (iovernor If two-thirds of all the members elected to the Senate 1 concur therein." Mr. Kul'iis W. Peckham, who has been added to Judge McCnnnn's counsel, said the prosecution . deemed it important that all the members of the , Senate should be present during the trlul. Ho i hoped some action would be tuken to procure the | attendance of every Senator. Under the new Ju diciary articli! this request was peculiarly neces- | sary. The absence of a Senator would be equal to a vote In favor of the accused. Senator Woodln replied that he Intended to ask lor iud< finite leave of absence. He would acquaint him- I self, as far as possible, with the evidence pre- ] sen ted, and he hoped to tike part in the final dis ?ositlon of the case. It would be impossible for : dm to be present in Albany all summer, and he hoped no action would be taken to compel his at tendance. Senator Murphy Inquired of the prosecution if they deemed that it was necessary for all the Sena tors taking part in the final decision of the case to be present during all the trial V Mr. Peckham replied that It was not legally ne cessary, but it was eminently desirable. Nothing short or a personal examination of witnesses, as they appeared when giving their evidence, should satisfy those who were to pass upon the case. Senator Johnson again expressed the hope that the testimony would be taken by committee. Otherwise the Senate might be called upon to sit until the first ol January. He could not possibly ; be present during the whole trial. His business was suffering, and he would have to leave Albany 1 to look after It. Senator Murphy said that he doubted not that the I trial must necessarily occupy many weeks. He had ; intended to ask for leave of absence, but he would ! not do so, although he had lately been under sur gical treatment and ought now to lie at his home, lie would attenu the trial whenever he wus able to do so. N. C. Moak. ror the defence In the MeConn case, ] said that if it would suit the convenience or the Senate, they had no objection that the testimony be taken by a committee in New York. The printed testimony now before the Senate, taken before the Assembly Judiciary Committee, contained much irrelevant matter that should be stricken out. Senator 1). P. Wood hoped the senate would not commence <le now to take testimony. The test I- ! mony now before the Senate was taken before a competent committee or the Assembly, and was competent. Senator Murphy thought the request of counsel | for Judge McCunn that the testimony be takeu over again was reasonable, and ought to be granted. ? Part or the printed testimony taken by the Assem bly committee could probably be used. A LOhU DISCUSSION KOM/IWEP, Involving the question whether the testimony already taken and printed should be retaken in open Senate or before the committee, or whether the testimony taken before the Assembly Cominit j tec of the Judiciary Hhoul<l l>e lined. Another point rained by the counsel for Judge McCunn wax that ' there wan a preliminary question which they wished ! to submit to the (Senate for its decision ? a question of Jurisdiction. That question would be argued by Judge Selden, and for the purpose oi securing his I services a delay of one week was asked. Senator Murphy moved that the case of Judge McCunn be postponed lor one week. Lost by the following vote VEis? Mexurs. Dickinson, John Hon. Lewiu, Lord, Murpliy, J. Wood? 0. Navh? Messrs.

Moak then proceeded on the part of the ' defence to argue the question of the jurisdiction of I the Senate. The question wus not simply as io the ; rights of John II. McCunn, but whether the const i i t ii i ion should tie iollowed ami respected. The case ! of Judge Smith, which the Senate propose to follow, I Is not the present case. Counsel then proceeded to read at length from the Smith case. The i Governor passed upon the case, assumed the I facts submitted to be true, and called upon i the party accused to prove his innocence. It j had been decided by the Supreme Court ol ! the State that before a man could be put on trial he must first be indicted by some party. It is not | enough that certain parties shall bring charges | against a man, and that the Governor, without ex I amination, shall transmit the charges to the Sen | ate. An elective otllcer cannot be removed without a full and fair hearing.' The Constitution guaran I ties that before an elective officer be put on trial the Governor shall himself investigate the charges. That course was followed IN Til K CASE OF JCIMJIC I'RINDI.E, in which the Governor heard counsel on both side!". In the present ease (the McCunn case) the Gov ernor has not recommended a removal. The volu minous charges were transmitted bv him to the Senate on the same day they were submitted to him, and before he could possibly have given them an examination. Counsel then read from the Revised statutes, and cited an opinion of Judpo lironson to prove that the removal ol an elective officer could not occur without the recommendation of the Gov ernor. In this case the Governor gives no intima tion that Judge McCunn ought to be removed. Judge Van Cott replied, contending that the criti cism passed on the Governor's recommendation was purely a verbal one. The Governor was not bound in absolute terms to recommend removal. The constitution diil not sodirec. The Governor, instead of looking at the mere letter of the consti tution, had regard to Its spirit. In the Prindle case the Gyyei'uvr'H recommendation is of a quaii ilfd ^bar^cter. At tne conclusion of the Judge's argument the Senate took a recess until four o'clock. The weather here is oppressively hot, and this fact, coupled with pressing engagements on the part of some Senatoi s, lead to the belief that the session will not lie a lengthy one, and that possibly a sub-committee may be appointed to take the evi dence and report to the Senate. Evening Deulon. On reassembling A. C. Davis, of counsel tor re spondent, said in the few remarks he was about to make he was taking upon himself a responsibility and duty which he had not anticipated. This being the law part of the case It had been left to Judge Seltlen to present to the Senate; but that gentle man was unavoidably absent. Nevertheless, It be ing a very important question, he would be doing a great injustice to his client If he did not do the best he could with it, and lie would. In the outsi t. ask the Senate to look at this question the same us if Judge McCunn were not hero at all ; as if no one in particular were here, as, whatever the decision may lie, It fixes a precedent for all time. What, he asked, does the constllntiondlctate to you in such a case hh this r This is a question which divests Itself of all personality, and, consequently, should 1m> thus divested. In what capacity do you stand here r Yon are here In the same position as a court of record, and should he governed in ac cordance. You are here to perform a judicial func tion, and the question is presented, "Have you Jurisdiction In tnis case ?" I am sure you will 'de cide tliis question with carelul deliberation. The constitution realities vou to do a certain thing after another certain kct is perforfnea. YOU MAY HKMOVK a jrnoK after the Governor hus recommended that he tie removed. This is your authority to act. Without that act precedent you have no authority whatever to act. Von get your anthorlty to act In these (rases from the constitution, and that constitution , prescribes how and when you shall act. It is when the Governor shall have recommended the re- . moval. Why does the constitution require the j Governor to recommend a removal before tne Senate proceeds to remove? it is for tne same reason that the constitution requires the Gover nor to recommend and you to appoint an omciai. The constitution regards the Governor as com petent to make these recommendations, and exoects him to look Into the qualifications of an appointee, as it expects him to look into the sullt of an accused. Thereiore unless the Gover- | nor recommends you to remove an official the pro- i vision of ?he constitution Is not fulfilled, and any proceeding on your part would be in violation of I f the oons^liniloii. The oonstltuHon, looking npoi^ ' the Oovernor as an official of Integrity, experts 1 him to examine and Judicially determine in his ; mind whether a case 1m one which should go to the I he 1 1 ate. counsel said ho had bean unable to Qnd a single cane of thin kind In which the Oovernor, In hlH communication to the Senate, had not sold he had heard and examined, and therefore recom mended removal and cited the recent cases ol SMITH, I'ltlNKLK AND CIBTIS. In this ease of Judge McCunn what does the Oov ernor say* Not that he ha<l found anything against him In his official course, but that the Assembly, having asked liiiu to MDd tlwN charges to the Senate, he had done so; in other words, that the Assembly had sent this batch or papers to him. He. Dimply to get tlte load o!T his shoulder*, had sen! them to the Senate, with the recommendation that they he examined. This Is very different from his following the provision of the constitution and say ing to you, "I have examined these papers, have heard tne case, and recommend you to remove Judge McCnnn." Counsel said he could not see how the .Senate could give one moment's attention to this ease, coining before it as it did. As to precedents, he said the Senate could uot (1ml a singli* cast* in which the Oovernor has not said he Iiuh had at least a hearing In the case before send ing it to the Senate. Counsel called attention to the Importance of removing a Judge irom office, and how necessary It is that the proceedings should be regular and constitutional, lie coiild not think the Senate would do an act which would be a clear violation of the constitution, lie coul i not say what motive governed the Oovernor In hi* action? wliat Induced him to send such a message to the Senate, lie might have treated the resolu tions of TUB SENATE WITU SILENT CONTEMPT, but he thought, perhaps, it wus l>cst to comply with their request, t>o he sends you a batch of papers, taken by a roving commission to examine? simply to examine. He does not recommend you to re move, and, after you have examined these papers, what then ? The Oovernor not having recom mended you to remove, how can you proceed to re move f What authority have you t.o remove * Counsel proceeded in tills strain at some length, referring to the long service ou the iieucli of the respondent and to his rights under the constitu tion. K. W. Peckham, Jr., followed on the same side, repeating much the same views. on the conclusion of his remarks the Senate went Into private session on the motion. tm reopening the doom th<' President annonneed that the motion of respondent's counsel wua denied. Jiidge Van Cot t, of counsel for prosecution, then moved that testimony transmitted by the Oovernor be received as evidence In the case. Mr. Moak, of counsel for respondent* objected. He said it was the tirst time that he ever henrtl that evidence taken fo> one purpose could ??e used for another. This testimony was ex parte, and had been tukeu for a Court ol impeachment. A. C. Davis and It. \V. Peckham, Jr., also opposed the motion. Senator Johnson offered n resolution that a com mittee of live be appointed to take testimony la New York; that each Senator be supplied with a copy of the same when taken, and that the Senate meet at the Capitol to hear arguments in the caao at such time as the Senate may determine. , Without taking the question on the resolutions the Senate adjourned till to-morrow morning. Counsel on both sides were requested to consult as to what testimony they can agree upon as being proper to accept aud dispense w ith retaking. Tin* has reference to the documentary evidence. THE EDGAR STEWART. Official Information Concerning the Dls? charge of the Crew and the Difficulty with General Aguero at Aaplnwu.ll. Ai,n any, June 10, 1872. Mr. Charles E. Perry, United States Consul at Aspinwall, who 1s now In this city, has received the following Important information Irom the United States Vice Consul at Aspinwall iti relation to the steamer Kdgar Stewart, which arrived at said port on the 21st of May, 187i? : ? No sooner had the captain let go his anchor than most of the crew appeared at the Consulate and asked for their discharge. Alter an Investigation into the case the Vice Consul decided it expedient to discharge them according to law, the voyage of said vessel having been continued contrary to con tract. This enraged Oenerul Aguero, who assumed to be in full command of the Stewart arid all on board, which resulted lu a difficulty between the captain of the Stewart and Oenerul Aguero. The facts becoming known to the Vice Consul, he decided uot to clear the ship until lie could further Investigate matters. Whereupon a portion of the crew remain ing threatened the life of Captain Penneil, and the Vice Consul was obliged to call upon the Prefect for a military force to restore order on board, but be fore his request was granted by the Prefect the United States steamship Wyoming came Into port, and at the request of tne Vice Consul a force was Immediately sent by Commander Davis to board the Stewart. before this force could reach the vessel the offenders made tlielr escape. The case of the Stew art Is entirely different from that of the famous | Virginlus, unil the Vice Consul has decided to de j tain her In the port of Aspinwall for the present aa i the best means to protect American property. OBITUARY. Smith Barker. Tlio death of Smith Barker, a well-known and veteran memlter of the bar In this city, took plac? at Kye, Westchester county, on Tuesday evening, lsth lust. Mr. Barker was born at White Plains la ' 1801, an<l educated at Fnlou College, graduating la 1 1821, In the same class with William 11. Heward. He studied law In tho office of the late Mluott Mitchell, at White Plains, and after being admitted I to the bar removed to this city, where he was soou dolug a nourishing practice. He was intimately known to old New Yorkers, and was very popular among his pro fessional brethren. Tne poor and distressed in variably found lilin a kind friend, and did not lack I his assistance and services even when they were un I able to pay for them. His death will occasion deep sorrow among those who knew him, and Mr. Barker was perhaps better known to the legal pro fession than any lawyer in New York city, although he confined himself to the office part of the prac tice since the Code of 1848, leaving to Ills younger associates the business of the courts. He lias drawn more wills than any man at the bar, involv ing millions of dollars. Smith Barker was the boo of Win. Barker, who, besides having represented tills State in the Legislature, was Treasurer of West i Chester county lor thirty years, until he would servo no longer. He died unmarried and in the possession ol large wealth. He was a devoted me miter of the Protestant Episcopal Church aud one of the found ers of the llrst church lor worship of that denomi nation at White Plains. He served as vestryman of '/.ion church In this city during lorty-flve years, and "Smith Barker's church" was known to all. llo was one of the trustees of the Kplscopal Theological Seminary and counsel aud trustee for several of our largest corporations. Political honors were offered him, but there was no office which could tempt liiin, and he esteemed it enough honor to be known as an honest lawyer and to bo senior vestryman of Zlon church. He had selected the spot where he was to be burled, beside his lather, at White Plains. \ good man has fallen, whose memory will not soon be forgotten. He will be buried on Friday, from the Kplscopal church at White Plains. THE WEATHER. Wak Dbpartmrnt, ) OFFICE OF TIIB CllIKF SIGNAL OPFICRK. J Washington, L). c., June 20? l A.
