THE ILJBilHJ SECESSION.
Two Legislatures Claiming the Right to Rule the Roost. A STATE DIVIDED AGAINST ITSELF. The Democrats Offering a Scnatorship for Local Power. Oeneralissimo Spence* Respect fully Declines* last Kick of the Expiring Democracy?The Quarrel As It Stands?Probable Peace ful Settlement of the Difficulty. The Northern people have heard that In the city of Montgomery, the State capital'of Alabama, two bodies have been sitting in different placcs for the yaet week, each body calling ItseU tlic Legislature. This apparently revolutionary condition of things makes little rumor or excitement amoug tho Ala bama people. It Is the expiring ebullition of the democratic party, routed horse, foot and dragoons, to savo the control of the State Itor future party uses, by conceding the United States Scnatorship and keeping the Legislature by the assiduity of the State officials whose terms are expiring. The State officials were democrats. They possessed the powers between the expiration of the old and the organization of the new Legislatures. They were surprised and humiliated in tholr sanguine expectations of car rying tho State under tho patronage of Greeley, whom they mockcd with their patronage while they supported him. When they awoke the morn ing after the election they found THE FOUNTAINS OF THB GREAT DEEP kronen up and the great Grant rain of ma joritles descending upon the land, Then they hope d still to save the Legislature and mould the new State by taking advantage of the apportionment and forcing the count of some of the counties, so that their Secretary of State could prematurely issue certificates of election to non-elected democrats. For this work they selected Russell, Bar bonr and- Marengo counties. In the former they were closely watched and their fraudu lent majorities of 1870 anticipated; so they re hictantly surrendered it. In Barbour couaty they took advantage of some Irregularities amoug the officers presiding over the ballot to ob tain an injunction, while the Secretary of State gave certificates to tho defeated legislators. In Marengo couuly they had a republican box thrown out because the rain spoiled some of the ballots. In both the latter counties they appear to have tampered wltu the Supervisors of Election, and now rest ttxeir cause solely upon the certificates they obtained, instead of upon the genuine and complete returns. These would have given them the legislative and judicial control of all other contested cases. They do not ap pear to lay any claim to having carried either Bour bon or Marengo county, but argue that the posses sion of the certificates aforesaid put them in posses sion prior to any examination. As this fact of pos session would be to concede the whole ease to the old State administration the republicans refused to be drawn Into the Legislature and assembled In another building. Thus TWO LEGISLATURES WERE IN SESSION In the same State at the same time. As the democrats were in the Capitol edifice, of which the retiring administration held control, they were recognized by the retiring Governor; but his administration came to an end to-day, and the new Governor, it Is understood, will recognize the regular majority to-morrow, and put the wheels of the Commonwealth in motion. This will compel the democratic minority to give up the Capitol, and leave them no option but to Impeach the Gov ernor (Lewis) or peacefully retlro and re-lorm con lolntly with the republicans. To show how the ballot In Marengo county has been maulpulated, In order to catch the certificates, the lollowing vote will show OFFICIAL VOTE OF MA RES" <10 COUNTY, Alabama, as returned by the inspectors of election of each prccinct, who wcro all democrats.

The sue will probably prove that ho Is the only Sena tor from a Southern State, not to the manner born, who will have succeeded by fair means in saving ?lis Commonwealth to the republican party, and also have accomplished his return to the Senate. SVKNCRR A WAITING CANDIDATE.

He prefers at this writing the preca rious position of a candidate waiting upon legislative complications to the speedy peace of place devolving npon an easy conscience, which would arise from leaving the republican party In Alabama to take rare of itaeif. He will be elected at any rate, but not until the present embargo he broken through and the party be as firmly settled in Alabama as ho la in his neat in the Senate.

LATEST PHASE OF THE MFFICILTY. Both Bodies Rcrognlicd?llow the Bolter* G?t a ituorum?The People Kxcltcd. Montgomery, Ala., Nov. 20, 1872. Governor Lewis sent a communication to the bolters to-day promising co operation with them in legislatioa. Governor Lindsay, beiore retiring, sent his message to the regularly constituted Sen ate and House In session at the Capitol. It thua tarns out that both bodies have received gubernatorial recognition. The bolters were with out a quorum In either house, but by admitting Baker as a Senator rrom Morgan county, Chlsholta as a Senator Irom Limestone county, Dercnas as a Senator from Marengo county, and Miller as a Senator from Bulkier and Conecut counties?none of whom held certificates or other credential?they made ap the necessary quorum. Three of these had never filed notice of contest on Senators holding certificates, nor did any one have offlcial knowledge of their claim to seats as Senators until they appeared and were sworn In. Among the bolters at the United States Court room the same rule prevailed in getting up a quorum in their House of Representatives, men enough having becu there admitted without credentials to do so. This action of Governor Lewis is severely criticised by the people, who say that he has assumed to create a Legislature wh-re, for want of a quorum, none existed before. Much excitement exists, but the Legislature at the Capitol having in both branches been called to order by the officers aud moans provided bv the con stitution of the State, and being thus composed onl v of men holding regular certificates of election and having been officially recognized by Governor Lindsay, who was (iovernor of Alabama when tuo Legislature assembled aud who sent his message to aud approved bills passed by them, are deter mined to hold their erganization, relying on the regularity and legality of their course and the sense ol justice of the lederal government. 8TBAHCE DISCOVERT III A CHUBCH. As Abode of Burglars In Westchester County?The Attic of a Sacred Edifice Converted Into a Den of Robbers? What Their Stoch in Trade Consisted or. While some workmen were engaged making al terations in a church situated near Bronx vllle, a little station on the Harlem Rail road, In Westchester countv, and about fifteen miles distant from New York, they acci dentally discovered, a day or two ago, the bead quarters of a gang of burglars in the attic of the edifice. It may be mentioned that the modest place of worship indi cated stands in an isolated grove, about half a mile from the railroad and within the limits of the town of East Chester. The attic of the church has never been used for any purpose, and the only access to it from the body of the edifice was by means of a step-ladder employed only by the sexton when he climbed to the Interior of the spire for the purpose of ringing the bell. While effecting some alterations in the wall at the opposite end or the building to that in wh'ch the belfry was situated the carpenter lound that the attic had been used as a RKNDKZVOt'S FOR BtTRftT.ARS, fitted up with a rude table, chairs, a ferosene stove 'or cooking and sundry other culinary uten sils. In an elaborate satchel were discovered over two liuudred skeleton keys, two formidable looking revolvers?one or them a seven shooter, with a "skull-cracker" forming the handle?files, saws and other Implements, forming a verv complete set of burglars' tools. Several dilapidated articles of wearing apparel, evidently Intended as disguises for the gang, were also scat tered around, together with a box of blacking, brushes and other appliances of the toilet. Unfortunately for the ends of justice, the work men who made the discovery at once carried off THS BURGLARS' EFFECTS, thus preventing any possibility of their cap ture. Captain Mangln, ol the Yonkers po lice, having been Informed of the affair on Thursday, lost no time In proceeding to the now abandoned haunt or the burglars, without being aware that any of the articles had been disturbed. Long before reaching the spot the Captain found, to his mortification, that the imple ments had not only been removed, bnt that the affair had gained such widespread noto riety as to baffie all attempts look ing to the capture of the robbers. As a large number of keys for unlocking freight cars and raUroad switches were found among the other articles, It is now believed that the attempts to throw trains from the track were perpetrated by this nest of villains. DETECTIVE DOIffflS. Isaac Meyer and Matthew Ylllar were arrested yesterday afternoon by Detectives Slmington and Farley In Sixth street. They are charged with having committed a burglary in Rhinebeck, Dutchess county, N. Y? ten days ago. Suspicion was ttrst cast upon these men by the arrival of an officer from Rhinebeck. Captain Irving detailed Detectives Slmlngton and Farley to work up the case, and yesterday afternoon, when the officers went to their residence they found the birds within. When the detectives made known their business Meyer rushed from the room and endeavored to escape, Detective Simington pursued him and got the scoundrel on the sldewald. The moment Meyer felt the officer grasp him by the shoulder he pulled out a long butcher knife and made a dash for t he officer. Siimnsrton. on seeing the kplie brought out, drew his pistol and was on the point of shooting down the thief, when Mever's wire, who had followed the officer to the street, flung herself upon the body of her husband and begged of the detective not to shoot him. Officer Sim ington, being unwilling to hurt the woman, put his weapon up and secured the prisoner. While this tragedy was going on Detective Farley was the principal figure in a similar one. VlUar followed the example ot his daring comrade. Being unable to run down the stairs, for the officer barred hts way, he Jumped out of the window; but Farley fol lowed him, and both lighted on the sidewalk at the same moment. Quick as lightning, VUlar drew a knife aud made a plnnge at the officer. Farley was as quick as he was, and brought a pistol on a level with the nose of the thief almost at the Instant that the other threatened his life. Mr. Yiliar, see ing the law was too much for htm and that the de tective was a brave and fearless man, as well as a mysterious and cunning detective, surrendered. He was brought to Police Headquarters at the same time as his comrade, and both were locked up bv Captain Irving. Later in the afternoon they were sent hack to Rhinebeck, where they will, no doubt, meet the reward of their work. THE BROADWAY FIRE. Other Losses and Insurances.

THE 00EAW BASK. The depositors of this isstltutioa held a meeting at the Maclair House last night. Nothing of im portance was done, save the reading of the several depositors reports, all of which told a differ ent story. One gentleman stated that Mr. Mann, the receiver, had promised to make a compromise with the directors and stockholders, provided the depositors were wiiilag, and have all legal actions stopped, and pay eighty ceuts on die dollar. Another stated that he was informed by the same gentleman that the ?oney flue the depositors, whatever It might oe, could not In all probability toe paid for a year or two, but supplemented this speech by saying that it vlgtit be paid in a week or so. The victimized depositors seem to be very back ward in taking any legal action; so they adjoaraed until the second Friday In December, when they will take decided action for the payment of their claims.

Ayeiir and a half ago some one mentioned at a London breakfast table that one of the moat promi nent of the Fenian leaders was making a tour of the United State*, dilating upon English tyranny and tbe wrongs ol Ireland. It is no secret that this Fenian emissary was O'Donovan Kossa, then re cently elected representative in Parliament for Tip perary, but declared by tlie House of Commons dis qualified irom being a member because Ue was at the time a convicted felon. As I get credit for bringing Mr. Fronde here I will claim from yon the privilege of saying a few words on the question which he and his antagonist have been polling asunder. First? I thank you for your leading articles on "Burke and Fronde." Your view of the question is that shared in by men who would risk anything to free Ireland, and I only wish some one like yon would auswer Mr. Froude from an Irish national and historical standpoint. He has spoken as a Protestant and an English Protestant; bis an tagonist has replied as a Catholic and a ltoman Catholic. The papers to-day are commenting on the Rev. Mr. Burke's apology to Mr. Froude on account of somo Irish men and women reluslng to watt at table upon the English historian. Father Burke's eloquent exposure of tlie many falsehoods told by Mr. Fronde about Ireland, and the many wrongs Inflicted on that country by England, which Mr. Froude would excuse, was listened to by these Boston Irish, who resented the outrage in the most harmless way tbey could. The London Times speaKS of Fenian leaders "dilating npon English tyranny and the wrongs of Ireland," but the Times and the English govern ment can stand any amonnt of talking. They do not fear it. It Is only wben men attempt practical measures to subvert this tyranny that England feels apprehension. When Father Bnrke says he Is no revolutionist, and that Ireland is not fit to ob tain her freedom by revolution, and when Mr. Froude says Ireland will never obtain her freedom but by revolution,' and that she is able to obtiin it if she go the proper way abont it, what are we to think t Which is the best mentor? I unhesitatingly go in for the English man, and I would follow his teaching in preference to Father Burke's. Many may call me a fool. They may. I know as well as they that the safest course for me would be to follow the priest's, to talk of the wrongs of Ireland and leave the redress ing of them to God, and wait for Irish freedom till He would send it, alter Lord Macaulay's Mew Zealander had seen the ruins from London Bridge. Froude says that the pursuit of freedom would en tail on me self-sacrifice and danger, the risk of death, dungeons and so forth; that those who are not prepared for these are not fit for freedom. I believe him and I believe Father Burke, and I am not fitted for It yet, no matter how much we may talk of our love for Ireland. I have spoken of Macaulay, and trom him a re ply may be easily had to all the other things that Mr. Froude said about the Irish not being fitted for freedom. Here it Is, and I think Macaulay has as high a reputation as Froude There is only one core for the evils which newly ac quired freedom produces, and that cure is ireedom. When a prisoner leaves his cell he cannot bear the lltfht of day: lie is unable to discriminate colors or recognize facet; but the remedy is not to remand lilm into Ills dun ?oon, but to accustom him to the rays of the sun. be blaze of truth and liberty may at first dazzle and bewilder nations which have become half blind in the bouse of bondage; but let them gaze on, and thev will noon he able to bear it In a tew years men learn to reason; the extreme violence of opinion sub sides; hostile theories correct each other; the scat tered elements of truth cease to conflict and begin to coalesce and at length a system of lustlce and order is educed out of tbe chaos. Many politicians of our time (Froude, I suppose, is one of these) are In the habit of lay ing it down as u sell-evident proposition that no people ought to to be free till they are lit to use their freedom. The maxlin is worthy of the fool In the old story, who re solved not to go into the water till he had learned to swim. If men are to wait for liberty till they become wise and good in slavery, tbey may, indeed, wai* for ever. Let Mr. Froude answer that, and he will find it harder than answering Father Burke on Satur> day nlKht. i?ut here Is one thing that Father Bnrke did not answer?viz., Mr. Froude's calumny on the United Irishmen of '?8? where he said they meditated giv ing over their country to the government or France. This, 1 think, demanded a word from Father Burke; but, perhaps, he believed what Mr. Froude said ou it. I do not believe it, and I believe that Mr. Froude has no historical authority for such a statement. If he has he ought to give it to men who wish him well for pointing out the right way to go about obtaining Ireland's freedom. Again, Mr. Herald, I thauk you for looking on the "massacre of 1641" in its true light instead of thinking It was a Catholic or a Protestant question. The Irish loosed upon the invaders as robbers, and it was as robbers and plunderers who forcibly took possession o. their goods that they slew the "plant ers," and not aB Catholics or Protestants. When the two countries were Catholic England governed Ireland as mercilessly as since thty differed in re ligion, and the English Catholic plundered the Irish Catholic without making it "an act of confession," as Father Burke says?" Whv, I read in Moore's nts tory of Ireland of an English priest in Ireland who swore he would consider it 110 sin to kill an Irish man, and that he would celebrate mass on a Hun day morning after killing one without making It an act of confession. Mr. Froude has spoken much of Fcnlanism In his lectures, but Father Burke has not said a word at all about anything that took place in Ireland since the famine of '47. Both of them totally ignored the lact that England had, at this present time, in her prisons fifty-two men who were convicted during the past seven years in a struggle for Iri.-h Independence. I don't blame Mr. Froude for for getting, but certainly Father Burke had a line opportunity to compliment the Englishman on his good taste in coming here to defend his government while these men were undergoing unheard-of tor tures iu England. As Mr. Froude has come acknowl edged to America to make you a kind of arbiter between the two countries, you, Mr. Editor, may do some good for these iriends ot mine In prison by telling Englanu she is not acting in a very noble manner In detaining these political prisoners so muny years. And some of theso were convicted for nothing but the purchase of armB in England, quite a legal thing for an Englishman to do, but a transportable offence when done by an Irishman. I listened to Father Burke's last lecture, and, with all possible respect for the tuleut and char acter of the priest. I can call the wind-up nothing but "hedging." When he said he would, "with the courage of an old monk," tell us his mind, I thought we were going to get something manly; but when I heard that Ireland was not fit for free dom by the sword?when I heard revolution ana the sword stigmatized, the sword, which alone has won freedom for America and for every coun try that ever obtained freedom?and when the au dience applauded, I felt I was a foolish man; and when I heard of freedom coming to Ireland after Macaulay's New Zeulunder coining to London, and of the Irish being fitted for it then If they stuck to their religion?when 1 heard of another possible freedom through the Irish becoming rich, and heard him speak of these a.-i the better class?I ielt myself run dowu very low; and when I hoard the audience applaud these sentiments 1 felt what a foolish fellow I must have been in the past. Your words this morning on the lecture revived me so far as that I am now able to write to thank you:? It appears to us that eloquent Irishmen line Father Burke are guilty of a (treat crime in keeping alive the bitter animosities of the past by appealing to history and reminding the Irish people that tliey had ancestors who wore not afraid to unsheatli a sword ill the d 'fence of right, whatever the result, when tlie only Ic.Miim th-y h.ive got to preach Is one of abject and cowardly sub mission. Jus* so, Mr. Editor. But Father Burke Is more consistent than other clergymen on that head. He never openly denounced men in Ireland lor at tempting to take the sword there to free it; whereas I have known other men who did do it, come out to America and actually speak as l-'ather Burke speaka?that is, iu a manner to lead to revo lution. If Fatfcer Bnrke would take all 'he ameliorations that England made in Ireland 1 think he would And very few that were not made by the fear of the sword. Indeed, be admitted in his'last lecture that England never gTaoted anything but at /.he cannon's mouth or the fear of revolution. Father Hurke has answered Mr. Froude as a Catholic, as an Irish priest and In many things ass historian, but he has not answered him as an Irish man who believes his conntry can be freed by flghUng England. Perhaps he does uot believe it or wish It to be so freed; then he has answered ] Froude in a manner satisfactory to all who think like him and satisfactory to England too. But for all that and lor all my ?folly*' give me Froude tor Irishmen who desire to continue men. Here are his words Political freedom, gentlemen, is too precious a gift to be lightly owned. It is not to oratory or to newspaper srtieiei Hist the fates awjrd the crown 01 nutionnl inde pendence. That crown is th? reward only ot united, nor Distent determination to he iri-e?a determination which flinche* from no flnnecr, admits of no compromise, hut expresses iueli to deed as well as in word.

BRUTAL WIFE MURDEB. A Orankrn Man, After a Th?nkigtTing Spree, liaMers His Wife to Dtatlk-Oli covcry of the Scmt-ftutie Body Yettcr* day Morning Near Dover, N. J. Another terrible wife murder took place In tbls vicinity yesterday (Friday) morning before daylight. It appears that a couple rosided at Mine Hill, or a settlement of that place called Irish Town, of the name of David aud Mary Ann Moore. Both were drunken characters, about thirty-five years old each. They lived in a fearfully dilapidated shanty, a mere barn, and in the midst of squalor and filth that were perfectly awful. The husband was a Protestant and the wife a Roman Catholic, which often caused strife between them. On Thursday evening Moore was drinking freely in a neighbor ing beershop, and went towards his home about midnight. About ten o'clock yesterday morning two boys wore hunting rabt?ts in the neighborhood of the hovel. A heavy snow had fallen through the night. As the boys passed down the sido of the creck they saw to their utmost horror the almost nude body of a woman lying on the bank of the creek. They at once gave the alarm, and word was sent to Dover, two and a half miles diBtant, by two men, to notify the JuBtlce. As they passed through Dover they saw David Moore standing at a street corner. Iu telling the Justice they spoke 6f seeing Moore in the town, but no effort was made to arrest him or send after him, as no charge was matte against him to the Justice, and the men only said a woman was badly hurt. Justice Cage at once visited the scene and caused the body to be taken into the shanty. It was found to t?e frozen stltf, one leg bent underneath and one arm stretched over the nead. The head was terri bly bruised and swollen, and showed signs of hav ing been beaten with the heavy knuckles of a man. Blood had dripped from cuts and bruises on the face. The body was laid on a bed In the miserable shanty and an attempt was made to hire men to watch it, but none could be got in that miserable neighborhood, and it was therefore locked up by the order 01 the Justice, to await the arrival ot the physicians for the post mortem. A caretul ex amination of the scene around the house showed that the body had been first drawn from the house and thrown against a big rock. It was then dragged furtuer, through a creek, wetting the limbs, and t hrown on the batik where found, a total distance of twenty-five yards. The bed in the shanty was covered with blood and drops were also found on the rock above spoken of. The overalls worn by Moore when he went home the night before weie lound saturated with blood. He wuh not seen to leave his shanty this morning, but must have lert it belore daylight, probably immediately a.ter leaving the body where found. That the deed was committed, or rather the body dragged to its resting place, alter four A. M. is evident from the fact that the track of the body Is plainly seen and no fresh snow ban fallen on it. The snow stopped falling about four A. M. An inquest will be begun to-day, the jury being taken from Dover. So prejudiced are the neigh bors around the scene of the murder against Moore that he would be hanged at sight if caught. Con stables are now alter him in all directions and it is not likely that he can escape. He is a tall, red-faced man, five feet and eleven inches high, with big sanay whiskers, brown hair but no beard. Ho has always been in trouble, was a confirmed drunkard and a man of poor character. When he went home that night he took with him a pint of rum, with which it is supposed he and the woman went on a spree, and then in his drunken ness he beat her so that she died. The affair creates intense excitement here. PROBABLE HOMICIDE IU WESTCHESTER. Juvenile Row at a Target Excursion In Melrose?A Boy of Twelve Shoots and Fatally Wounds Another Lad?1The Shooter's Version of the Tragedy. An altercation occurred between some boys at Melrose, Westchester county, on Ttiursday after noon, which resulted In one of them, William Maher, aged thirteen, beiug shot and fatally in jured by Simon A. Rehlm, a lad twelve years old. On the day above named it appears that the "Philip Cahill Musketeers," from New York, were enjoying a target excursion at Karl's Park, to which place they had been fol lowed by a number of boys from the city, bringing up the rear of the excursionists. These latter were denied admission to the park, and on this account, as is alleged, caused considerable annoyonce by their persistent efforts to enter the grounds. Young Hehim, who was employed in a owllng alley connected with the park, was sta tioned at a side entrance for the purpose of keep ing ont the Jnvenile crowd already indicated. According to his own statement, Rehlm having been pei.ted wrrn stones and called all the opprobrious uames In the cata logue of "Young America," look out an ordinary single-barrelled nistoi and lodged a bullet In the back or Maher. When the shooting became known, the wounded boy was conveyed by the police to the office of a neighboring physician, who, atter a cursory examination, pronounced the wound fatal, aud recommended that he be at once con veyed to his home at 08 Henry street, New Vork. He was accordingly taken there, to the consterna tion of his parents, whose grief on receiving their Bun in a dying condition was indescribable.

Why He let Himself Be Mimed and Where He Turned Up-The 0 d Story of Hard Drink and Peculation?What a Bookkeeper Can Do on a 8mull Scale vith. Small Opportunities?A Let ion to Trnatful Employers. If all the missing men whose names are now re corded on the books or the detectives at Police Headquarters turn up after the fashion of two or three of the sadly missed lately it is more than likely that their best friends will rather regret than otherwiao their reappearance on the scene of ac tion. The last missing one for whose safety many "dear friends" have been excessively alarmed, and about whom the detectives have been almost pestered to death by Hensatlon-mongers, Is a man named Levis, wifli the prefix George H. Be was employed about a year ago in the agcney depart ment of J. B. Ford A Co., 27 Park row. and got along very weU. He was polite and suave in his dealings with the many persons who had to do business with him, and he rapidly became A GENERAL favorite. However, he got into the habit of drinking, and it is supposed that this led him to other "fast" habits, to enable him to gratify which the funds at his own command we.re in the long run found in adequate. Then there was a repetition of the old, old story?the employer's money had to fill up the gap. As bookkeeper or the agency he nad oppor tunities for supplying his wants out of the firm's cash box, and It seems that he did not hesitate to supply himself in tnis way as occasion required, ami the peculations were discovered in this wise Everything went on charmingly with Mr. Levis un til the 1.1th inst. He had always been regular in putting In an appearance at the office every morn ing, but on this particular morning he was CONSPICUOUS BY HIS ABSENCE. Nothing serious was thought of his absence by the firm at first, they being under the impression that he had gone out ol town. However, his lrieuds finally became exceedingly uneasy, owing to the excitement In the publtc mmd over the fre quent "sudden disappearances" that were of al most daily occurrence In the city and the alarming speculations indulged in by the papers as to how the disappearances were made tooccnr. They at once instituted a search for hitn; but the search was made in vain. It came out that the last seen of him was leaving his boarding house in Clinton place on the morning of the 15tli inst. Meanwhile the firm began to get suspicious, and an overhaul ing of their books discovered that Mr. Levis had appropriated to his own use sums or money amounting in the aggregate to rrom two to three thousand dollars. Then a Mr. ParsonB called at the office to collect $1G0 duo him, aud it was discovered that a check had been drawn to his order, but that Levis had deposited it in the Phoenix Bank, with the name or Mr. Parsons writ ten on the back, and had afterwards DRAWN TUK CASH for the amount specified in the check. A Herald reporter yesterday called at Mo. 27 Park row and had a brief conversation wittowlr. Ford concerning Levis "Have you ascertained positively," asked the re porter, "that Levis has left the city?" "We have," was the reply, "lie is, or at least was, In Philadelphia, and we have instructed the police authorities of that city to look him up." "It has been stated that he gave it out in Phila delphia that he was private secretary to Henry Ward Beecher?" "So I saw by a Philadelphia paper; but he never had anything to do with Mr. Beecher, and I doubt very much if the latter would know him from the man in the moon. He was not in any way conuected with the Chris tian Union. The department in which he was em ployed is the agency and is not the dlrcct editorial office of the paper." "Do you suppose he has made away with much money of the firm ?" "Not to an extent that will prove serious; for you should understand that he was in the agency department and had nothing whatever to do with the Union. We have not been able as yet to get at the exact amount taken." "in what way did he accomplish his peculations by changing the entries in the books?" "Oh, he went about It in a much handler way; at least he seemed to think it was the shrewdest way. It appears that when he wanted to take any money he received be made no entry at all." "Had he been long in your employ?" "About a year. Ho always seemed to be honest and upright; but to he candid, I was rather, from the start, opposed to his beinj? employed, but there were others who had great expectations that he would turn out all right." "Those whom he had to deal with in business people outside the office I mean?found him courteous, obliging, Ac., did they not?" "They did. lie was very well liked by them. The fact is nc was very polite to all comers, but I think his manner was TOO OILY (it was more than enough), and there were tiroes when it made made me half doubt whether it was not a cover for something out of the way." "Levis is a married man, I believe?" "Heis; but I learn that he has not lived with his wife for Home time. His family is quite a respectable one and lives at Holly, Pa. I believe his lather is a retired paper merchant, but AN estrangement grew up between him and tne son long ago which was never bridged over." "Was he of 'last' habits while in your employ?" "Not that 1 knew of, although lie sot to drinking lately. I know it from the smell of his oreath at times." Here Mr. Wood added, "This thing will tcach us to be careful hereatter, and to put m places of trust only trustworthy persons." MARRIAGES AND DEATHS.
