The Receuity of Increasing (he Police
A number of thieves entered the premises of A.
3. Corwln 4 Co. at 1.138 Broadway the nlnlit before
last, and carried off property valued at about sixteen
thousand dollars. It appears tliat some time
before closing the store on Tuesday evening one of
the clerks In the employ of Mr. Corwln thought he
heard an unusual noise In the rear of the shop, nnd
at once conveyed his suspicions that thieves were
In the place to Mr. Corwln. The premises were
then thoroughly searched, but nobody was
found, and -Mr. Corwln, believing that everything
was secure, ordered the house to be closcd. At ten
o'clock the store was shut up, and every one employed
In it went home as usual. The policeman on
post passed the place several times during the ntght,
but nothing occurred to attract attention to it.
About a quarter past four o'clock in the morning,
however, Officer Martlnot, of the Twenty-ninth
precinct, noticed in express wagon driving
away from in front of the store, and, supposing
that something was wrong, be immediately hurried
to the place. The officer found the door open
and the goods in the store thrown around
in the greatest confusion, lie despatched
a messenger to the residence of Mr.
Corwln, and that gentleman Arrived at the store
some time after, upon investigating the stoc-K it
was discovered that 60,000 cigars in uox< s, valued
at from $14,000 to $lfl,ooo, and $100 in money had
been carried off. Thrown carelessly behind the
thieves had left behind them, probably because the
wagon was too much loaded to carry tlicin. It is supposed,
troiu the appearance of the place, thetlilevcs
must nave secrcted themselves In the store during
the day, and as soon as the people belonging to the
shop had gone away weut to work. That there
were several of thctn there can be no doubt, as the
robbery could not have been so quickly and secretly
done by one or even two meu. The lollowing is a
list of the brands of the stolen cigars:?"Klor del
Fumar," "Conchas," "Monte Chrisfo," "Londresf,"
"Deslgnio Coronea," "Deslgnio Uritanulca," "Arquilles,
Non Tlus Ultra:" "Islenlta de Cuba,"
"Londres do Cirto," "Henry Clay, Non l'lus Ultra,"
and "Kegalia Especiulos."
On the eth Instant a man and woman calling
themselves Mr. and Mrs. James applied to a Mrs.
Hardy, at 504 Broome street, for board. They wero
rentea a room In the house, and continued to live
tlfere up to yesterday morning, when two men
called at the house to see them. The .lames family
seemed delighted to meet the new comer* and sent
out lor some whiskey. Mrs. Hardy and her servant
were asked to partake. They accepted the
Invitation. While enjoying them&v .ves in the
parlor the two strange men Jumped from
their seats, bound and gagged Mrs. Hardy
and the servant, and then the four friends sacked
the house. Tliey found a quantity of Jewelrv and
Sersonal property, valued at about two thousand
ollars, which thev carried oil, and no clue has yet
been obtained to tnclr identity or whereabouts.
A couple of thieves went into the residence of
Dr. Palmer, at No. 316 East Fifteenth street, the
night before last, and succeeded In escaping with
property valued at $600.
Tho number of robberies of this description that
occur every day bear strong testimony to the
necessity or the adoption of Mayor Hall's recommendation
regarding the police torceof the Metropolis.
The number or men at present in the department
Is entirely too small tor the work that is
expected of them, and the Mayor's suggestion to
Increase the foroe is the result of a careful etudy
of the wants of the department. Nothing can
bo easier for thieves tlian to break into a
store or a private resldenco as things now stand,
for the reason that the policc arc obliged to cover
60 much ground. There are numbers of posts that
extend to from two to three miles long, aud while
the patrolman Is at one end of the post the thieves
havo plenty or time to get Into a building. Of '
course they put a watch upon the movements of ;
the policeman, and this watch Informs them of the i
approach or the olHcer. The work In 1
tuo store Is then stopped until the I
policeman passes l>y, and us soon as it is anno.mccd
he Is out ol hearing distance the booty la
carrie-l off. This could not be the case If the nosts
of duty were shorter, and their length can only he
reduced by an increase o( the force. It is to be
hoped the recommendation of the Mayor will bo
acted upon; lor fiese robberies arc only ono of the
minor evils the city is laboring under from flio
want of a sufficient number of men to take proper
care oi the Uvea and properly of the people.

New York, died yesterday forenoon at Ills temporary
residence, in Kichfield Springs. He was sixtythree
years or age, and had occn invalided by illness,
more or less severe, during a considerable
period or time just past. Mr. French was a very
well known citizen or New York, lie paid anxious
and careful attention to the development of onr
State system of militia organization, a fact which
was duly appreciated by his fellow soldiers and
brother officers, who elevated him, some years tilnce,
by vote to the colonelcy of the Twelfth regiment,
National Guard, a command which he administered
for a time. lie was verv succcssful as a host, and
rendered the hotel wfilch bears his name very

Ai.nany, July 17,1873.
On the reassembling of the extraordinary term of
the Supremo Court this morning Mr. O'conor resumed
bis argument, lie held that it was a lalso
issuo winch had arisen between themselves and
the defendants. Though tno Hoard of Supervisors
may be a corporation, it Is not such a corporation
ns exists in tne several counties of the Stale. All
the corpora'ions of New York are now wrapped up
in what is known as the city charter, under the
head of department*. One portion of our argument
yesterday, and which the other tide at tempted
to controvert, was t!?fc question relative to the property
held by the Hoard of Supervisors as a corporate
body. The truth Is they held no property
which they controlled so as-to dispose of by sale or
otherwise. The counsel on the other sido cited in
their brief, to prove the validity of the Board of
Supervisors as a corporate body, the fact that tho
Court House was county property; and Mr. O'Conor
referred this Court to the opinion of Judge Leonard,
in 40 Barbour, page 314, where the story or its possession
by the couuty Is very truthfully told, and
how it was accomplished through legislative enactment
for certain purposes. Vet he denied the
right of the Board of Supervisors to sell this or buy
other public institutions. It w:<8 strange that the
Mayor took no action toward redress for
the numerous frauds commuted against the
people until proceedings were instituted by the Attorney
General. He referred to an opinion of Judge
Bronson for a distinction between the Supervisors
and Mavor and Commonaltv. tn which that Judire
holds that neither body had a right to levy a tax,
either special or general, without direct legislative
authorization. lie quoted other authorities to sustain
the argument. lie also cited other authorities
to show that
of New York was not sneable for debts; they sat as
a judicial tribunal to pass upon claims, and when
allowed to levy a tax to liquidate claims exhausted
their powers. Hnpposlug that our theory
is correct, that the tax payers and commonalty of
New York cannot sue tiro county to recover, to
whom does the right belong? Why, to the state,
through its representative, the Attorney General.
Indictments for crimes and misdemeanors
constitute one large class of illustrations.
Pills to restrain and prevent public measures
afforded another. Actions against public oillccrs
and pubBc corporations for breach of trust or
neglect of dnty, another. Instances might be
adduced ad infinitum, but this plain proposition is
denied, and even if the right of nctiou he in the
State, it is contended that the phraseology adopted
by the provision of 1j<30, on codifying the common
law as to the duties of the Attorney General, has
so restricted the powers of that officer that
he cannot prosecute for such grievances as
wo mentioned in the complaint. A very
able answer to the defendants on both grounds may
be found in the opinion of Judge liner in 1'avis vs.
The Mayor, Ac., In U. Duel's Reports which
very deafly defines the powers atiu duties of the
Attorney General under the provisions of the
statute which makes It the duty of that oillcer to
prosecute and defend all actions, on the event of
wlileh the people ol the Htate shall t>c interested.
In other words, in all such actions he is made a
necessary party. From what has transpired In
this case they say that no judge could i>e found who
could decide the question argued; that no judge |
who was versed in the proceedings of the case had
indicated the possibility of a doubt relative to the
rights of the state in the case. U is true
on a decision; yet .Judge llogeboom, who acted
upon his determination made, u.ter hearing tno argument,
rendered a decision unhesitatingly; but
Judge Liogebooin had rendered decision previously
on the same subject, which was refilling thai
the Attorney General enjoyed the right to prosecute
In the Interest ol an aggrieved people. Admit ting
that the Mayor and Commonalty v.ere the proper
parties to tine, we lioid that they failed in their
duty, and are found in collusion with these men:
and the State has the right to interfere and uttempt
to get the money back, and have it applied
to the purposes for which it was
intended. Ho claimed that the State had
the same jurisdiction to interfere in tins ease
that it had it the agent or trustee ol a subordinate
corporation hnd undertaken to use Urondway lor
public purposes. This question is asked:?If the
state gets tills money, what will it do with it f llo i
thought that Judge Hogeboom decided that when 1
he asked what would the Board 0! Supervisors do
with it. In ease llu-y recovered it they had no I
more right to dispose of it than he luid. In ca*c
the State recoveiecl it, it would j-o into the
Treasury as money unappropriated, it could not i
be paid back to the taxpayers, it goes into the j
hands of the supremo power, there to remain
until the Legislature, h.v enactment, j
slmll devise how and by what means It I
should bo disposed of in a manner aproxiniate
with Justice. lie here said ne would submit
the case, claiming that he had the right to argue
the question "without entering into any stipulation
with the defendant, and he hoped that the Court
would render a decision 011 the <[ueBtion ut issue
without delay, and let the peop'e 01 this great Statu
know who are the defendants 111 Hue case.
Mr. O'Coi.or was followed by Mr. ':unitiel J. Tilden.
Alter referring to the manner in which he
had hcen introduced to the case, Mr. Tiliicn inqnir
cu.? ?i m> "in jMwiiun- omw ui iivmr l-illi.r >
Hoard ol .^n per visors? Wheie are they to get
bik'H authority? whore derive t-ueh commission?
Apain, who is the rarty injured? It is
the people, and therefore upon the representative
of the pe ople, the Attorney General, devolves
the duty to prosemtc." He cited from several authorities
on the equity of Jurisprudence In answer
to the argument on the bruf of Mr. Curtis, the principal
object ot which wan to establish the duties of ,
the Attorney Genetal.
Mr. Fields interrupted Mr. Tilden during ids citations
by tiic inquiry whether the case which he
cited was an action of law to recover money for the
Crown, or whether it was a case of equity, and
whether this case was one of equity ?
Mr. O'Conor answered that this was on" for the '
recovery of money, which in England wouid !>e a
case of equity.
Mr. Tilden continued by savin?, in all ens s of
equity there is a decree to pay back the money, and
inrmiated that the counsel on the other side exhibited
bad taste by attemptii.g at this 'ate day
to endang'-r the case of defendants by making the
Interrogation whether the ease was ?>ne of
Mr. Fields ashed Mr. Tilden if ho couM cite a suit
where the Crown ever recovered back money from
a trustee ?
Mr. 'J'llden replied that It is In Just such cases that
the Attorney lionet al :<teps in and acta for the peoplo.
The funds of New iork were raised by general
levy for the public benefit, and trtonld net havo
toeu misapplied, by donatiou or otherwise, by the
custodians 01 those funds. On concluding his Citations
he said he had very little to say in addition.
They embraced all that he desired to sav on the
?tic?tlon, which was that public trusts were subject
o suit for recovery by the Attorney General.

ngui ui vuo Keiiueiuun wuo appeareu lor iii? prows- i
cation to arraign these defendants as the guilty
ones and hold them up to public ridicule. The
prosecution deny the rlgnts of the taxpayers to sue
Iu their own behalf, and assert that the only
proper person to jue was the AttorneyGeneral
of the State; that bondholders have
no ground for action to recover tor bowls issued, '
that the faith of the people has been pledged for
the redemption of these bonds. Tne people possess
the right of action to recover. To-day we hear
nothing about the extiuction ol N?w York, but that
the taxpayers of New York are the owners of this
fund, and as they cannot, lnaiiitalu an action to
recover, the Attorney General, the reureBeniative
of the people, must restore the fund
to its proper owners. If this theory is true there
is no escape for us; but If we can snow by slmplo
statute that the county of New York possesses
the rlnht to sue and recover, what becomes of this
theory of the prosecution ? The liist volume of
It. and 8., page uc, declares the several counties of
the State. At pago Stt the statute dc-lincs
the power of the counties and the charactcr
they arc to maintain as corporate n
bodies, (arable of suing and being sued, of r
holding ami transmitting property. lie therefore, .
held that the l oard of Supervisors was no more 11
(he corporation of New York than was the presl- ti
dent of a bank, or even its directors the bank cor- a
poratlon Itself. Page 38t> of the same statute savs
that whenever any troublo arl.se3 between the 0
county and auy Individual or Individuals, r
tho county has the right to sue and re- a
cover tho same as individuals. To whom,
he would ask, Old this fund belong?
Will the counsel on the other side deny that this
money raised by the Hoard of Supervisors was not r
county property v Should this money be recovered
by the State it will go into the Stat J fund for tho K
benefit of the people at largo. If the county Is per- fl
mltted to recover, as It has the statutory right to t
do, it will go into the County Treasury, where it t
legitimately belongs. Because the Board of Audit c
was created by Legislative statute It is held that the li
members thereof are state oillccrs. With the same
propriety It cau be asserted that because tho directors
oi the Hudson River Railroad are creatcd v
by statute that they also are State olllc -rs, and t
that the State can matniain an action against a n

State or its representative, the Attorney General.
As to the right of the Attorney General i,
of England to maintain an action to recover trusts,
lie would way that the counsel on the other side "
have gone one step too far when they attempt to S
make the attorney generals of England and New n
York analogous". The Sovereign Is th-: fountain or
power In England, but the people Is the fountain 1
in this country. True, the Attorney General repre- i
sents the people, but where Is the authority for Ihe |
Attorney General to act in this case ?

Why dues the Governor pervert his oittce and con- t

It Is to forestall action to prevent the

Sunday Crime and (he Killing of Ofllccr
Tho Brooklyn Police Commissioners issued a circular
on Monday in regard to Sunday crime in
Brooklyn nnd tho murder of OUlccr John Donahue.
They say that "tho Impending doom that awaits
the cowardly and brutal murderers of the faithful
Officer Donahue docs not seem to deter the
ruffians that prowl through our streets b om assaulting
the oi'.icerB of the law. Yesterday, even tho
Sabbath day, and ere tho remains or that maitvr to
law and order were consigned to tlhir resting
place, policc olllccrs vere murderously assailed
by rum-crazed would-be murderers. Tl.o i?olice
mtist remember that the danger or us-ianlt and possible
murder to which tlicy are exposed on Sunday?
is increased just In proportion to tiio <>11.111 titv of
Intoxicating spirits that Is sold oa that day in particular,
because of the large number of man and
boys who persist In visiting and lounging m th*
vicinity or drinking saloons; hence the importance
of vigorous e n lores me nt of tho law which prohibits
the sale or jrlft of intoxicating liquors on Sunday.
While the prompt arrest of all law breakers is creditable
to the police, yet tho best evidence of an oitlcient
pollen force Is the absence or crlm \ Hut the
u.<tial catalogue of crime on every Monday momma
cannot be reduced until the sale or pretended girt
of spirits on that day tin not only nubile drinking
in saloons, but also in drug stores) is suppressed.
Vhilo the Commissioners thus publicly thank tho
police for the fearless and snccesslul arrests, and In
inuny instances at the apparent risk of their lives,
yesterday, they would inost earnestly enjoin on
them the paramount duty of preventing crime, by
the arrest and imprisonment or all persons, whether
liquor dealers or druggists, who either publicly or
covertly vlolato thojaw. x
