it will be seen Irom the above tables that the r<tute
taxes, the interest on the city an I county debt, the amount
? ot the Htati, city and county debt to be paid in 1*73 and
? other Items, amounting together to $26.462,6"! 2l, are so
flxod that it Is only from the remaining estimate.! re
quirements ol $10,<fti2,hi0 <;o, that reduction In expenses
can, a* the law now stands, be. made.
The Htate tax imposed on the city Is Incrcaied for 1873
over 1872 by $4,016,703 4S; of this $:1,644,:m7 72 Is towards
.supplying a deflcloney of $6,i00,00? in tho trust funds ol
the 8tate, which amount It is understood h:i* been used
by the State authorities prior to 1872 in violation of the
provisions or the conatltuiiou of the 8UU: relative to cer
<tain trust funds.
It is as evident to me now as It has been for the past
jrear that the expenses ol the oily ami county governnit nl
ought to be diminished, and that they can lie lessened
without Impairing the eftlcluncy ol the government If the
various departments co-operate to this end. Salaries
ahould be reduced, supernumeraries removed and sup
jilies for the citv purchased with greater economy.
It will be further seen from the Ugures given above,
?Clearly enough, I think, to arrest general attention, that
the time has come to pay lor the wastefulness and ex
travagance that nave run riot In this elty tor flvo years.
TUo oppruaaivo taxation caused largely

dustrious, moral and generous of our population.
No financial mystification will am us. It Is n plain
?lory: the expenses of the city arc too large tor its In
come, and retrenchment must be ellected.
The practice of borrowing to meet the annual expenses
Of the government, which has been so largely resorted to
for the nasi few years, cannot be justified. Kach yeur
should hear its own burdens. No farther Indebtedness
should be created except lor great aud unusual em< r
(reticles, the expense of whleh should ho tairly Sliread
over a series ol years, and an annual sinking fund pro
vided to meet the principal of such indebtedness.
It Is to he hoped that our Senator* and menu ers of As
sembly will b? vigilant to secure legislation, not In the
interest of any political parfv, hut such as will ensure
rellet to those who bear the bind, ns ol Ihe city. To de
crease taxation ovcry reasonsbl<> means should be taken
to increaso tiie income ot property owned by the city.
Public offices should be concenti a'ed in the public build
ings, and the exorbitant rt-nts which have been saddled
upon the city by loug leases should ceasn as rapidly as

and the great disproportion in valuation between prop
erty in tiii'* city and county and the property in other
couutiea of the State that tends ao much to enhauca the
burdens of the city, should no longer be allowed to exist
It will now, I think, be generally telt that lioneatefforts
to reduce the expanses of we city government should be
When sucn an effort was made a few months since a
clamor was raised against the economizing process. The
proposition to reduce the estimates of upwards of three
millions tor the police by a hundred thousaud dollars was
made a cause of alarm by statements that rapine and
robbery would follow all over the city. A proposed re
duction in the price of gas brought threats of darkness
throughout the city. Reductions suggested In the
amount apportioned lor several of the departmenta, and
in the coal ot laying Croton water mains and wooden
pavements gave rise to measures to baffle and prevent
such reduction, to cause needless alarm and to misrepre
sent the intentions of tboae who wcra determined {hat
reductions should be made.
Notwithstanding all thia, something In the way of
reduction has been accomplished in 1871 More remains
to be done in 1873. The increase in the taxation of 1873
over 1872 is caused by the necessity ol raiaiug moneys to
meet a misappropriation of Statu funds.
It is quite the fashion to say that the people of the city
of New York
and that they do not grudge public expenditures. This
is true, if money is reasonably well applied; but this
liberal view of things is too often perverted to cover ex
tra vagauce and waste 1 illness. Every dollar spent should
show Its result.
I trust the Legislature will afford the city authorities
the opportunity to revise early In tlio coming year any
estimates that may be made for 1873. as I believe that
with proper legislation they may be still further rcduccd,
and Ihope to be able on the coining in of the new admin
istration next January to mako some suggestions look
ing to this end.
The dny of order and economy and honest administra
tion is da wnlug.
I await witulmpatlenoe the day when your great ex
perience. your determined will aud your honored name
shall be officially enlisted in the cause of relieving the
burdens of the poople of the city, and in bringing to jus
tice the doers of tlio gigantic wrongs thut have so greatly
humiliated" aud oppressed them. Yours, respectfully,
ANDREW II. GUHKN, Comptroller.

Trial of Dr. Lucius B. Irish for
the Alleged Murder of Ed
ward O. Anderson.
The Jury Empanelled Yesterday?Description
of the Prisouer?Scenea in
the Court Room.
Dr. Lucius D. Irish, tho well-known physician
and druggist of Brooklyn, was placed on trial in
the Klug's county Court of Oyer and Terminer
yesterday morning on the charge of having
poisoned to doath Assessor Kdward O. Anderson,
who died on tho oth of April last. Dr. Irish was
jointly indicted with Mrs. Surah Anderson, the
wife of the deceased, hut asked for a soparate
trial, and, alter numerous postponements, the
case finally camo on yesterday. The circum
stances have herctotoro been published In tho
IIbkai.d, but, in addition to tho testimony elicited
before the Coroner at the time of the Inquest, it is
said that there Is evidence lorthcomlng of a start
ling nature, compared with which thai already re
ported Is weak.
Dr. Irish was brought Into Court by Deput?
Sheriff Milcy, of the District Attorney's ottlce, at
five minutes to tea o'clock yesterday morniug, at
which time the room was densely crowded by peo
ple of aU classes. The doctor Is a line-looking
man, apparently about lorty years of age, of stout
build and medium height, lie is partially bald, but
the sides and back of his well-shaped head aro
adorned by a thick growth of curly black hair, lie
wears a mustache and Dundreary whiskers, which
he stroked complacently yesterday while talk
lng to throng or friends
who greeted him during the interval previous to
the opening or the proceedings. He was ueatly
attired In a dark suit of clothes, and a huge emer
ald sparkled In his faultless shirt front. His de
meanor was that of a gentleman, perfectly
cool and apparently Indifferent to all trans
piring about him. He bore unflinchingly the
gaze of the entire court room, and, when joined by
his wife and sistor-lu-iaw, conversed very freely
with them. Mrs. Irish is a pleasaut-looking lady,
nearly the doctor's own age. She was fashionably
attired and displayed considerable Jewelry Dr.
Terry Irish, the prisoners brcther, was also m
atShortiy?after ten o'clock Judge Pratt took his
scat on the bench, and Associate Justices \001
liecs and Johnson followed. Considerable time was
consumed "n hearing the excuses or urors su,.,
nioned. At ten minutes to eleven o clock District
Attorney Britton moved Tor trial. hx-Judge
Morris responded that he was
He is assisted in tho defence by ?'n|ted ' 1 "*

At eleven o'clock Mr. (Icrard M. Stevens com
menced calling the names ori?rors 'i'VaSw
i?r iiavintr a iurv empanelled. The first naint
called was Bryant Drew, and immediately two
yotiug gentlemen stepped briskly up to the jury
box. This little ctrcumstance
for the time, but one oi the gentlemen stated that
Ills name was Frank, auil uot Bryant Drew, and
retired in confusion amid the laughter of
tutors Ur Irish, seated beside ins counsel, viewed
the proceedings w itli interest. The crowd In he
court room had Increased until there was not the
remotest standing room. Kven f'Jfp'P^'riork
the bench was invaded, Irom which Count} citiK.
llennan and others took in the whole scene.
At seven minutes past eleven o clock the first
iuror Mr. Alvln VV. Bell, ol Fulton avenue and
Cumberland street, was secured and sworn In.
During the onipaueliuent of the jury a discussion
arose between the counsel as to the right to ques
tion jurors as to whether they would convict on
circumstantial evidence. Jeremiah llackctt was

I Mr. Tracy did not like this course, and si id that
! it amounted to no more or less than asking tin,
juror whether
Both direct evidence and circumstantial evidence
1 wei'6 legal, but It was not the duty ol any juror
to judge as to the legality or admissibility of any
evidence. Mr. Tracy thoug'.it that they must litst
leai ii the juror's idea as to what circumstantial
evidence was, . - 'f? ? .
Judge i^rufl (to juror)?Do von entertain now*
any opinion in regard to a capital case that would
prevent you from finding a verdict ol guilty if the
evidence saiislied you that tiie party was guilty?
Juror (looking confused)?1 don't know, exactly.
^That'ltjuror was challenged peremptorily by the
prosecution, and lurtner discussion thereby cut oil.
At one o'clock a recess was taken lor three-quar
ters of an hour. J. N. Nash was secured as tho
fourth juror immediately alter the reassembling ol
the Court. Mr. Tracy objected to the question as to
whether he could tlnd a verdict on circumstantial
evidence, if he believed the evidence warranted It.
James B. Bowland was then called, examined, ac
cepted, and sworn in as the fifth juror.
The entire day was spent in tl;e
of empanelling a jurv. and It was a few minutes
before five o'clock when the last man was secured.
The Jury Is as follows:?Alvln W. Bell, Herman
Vosberg, George Simmons, J. N. Nash, James B.
Bowland, Ward Sweet, Francis W. Halbrook, Ben
jamin C. Howard, Jr., William Buil'erty, Albade
Bromley, Joseph Crocker, Charles F.ugelmun.
Before the Jury separated Judge Pratt said:?
Gentlemen of the jury, I desire now to give you a
caution which vou mint remember, and that Is,
when you separate vou will not discuss this case
with each other or allow it to be discussed in your
presence or allow any person to speak to you In re
lation to it.
District Attorney Britton?As the Court has In
timated the intention of perinlttfug the jury to
separate, I request It be done by consent ol the
counsel, which shall be entered upon the minutes
so as to preserve any legil question that might
arise therefrom. I desire that it be entered upon
the minutes as by consent of the counsel.

Judge Pratt?Jurors not empanelled In tnls
cause are discharged for the term.
District Attorney Britton?There may be other
business at the close of this trial. They might be
discharged until some subsequent day. I have a
large number of witnesses subpoenaed in this case,
and on that account it may be desirable to try

"judge Pratt?Has the other defendant been ar
raigned ou this Indictment?
District Attorney Britton?No, not on this same
Indictment: but the other indictment Is practicully
the same as this one. , ,
Judge Pratt?Can counsel give any Information
as to how lonir this case will take?
Mr Tracy?If the District Attorney can tell how
loug' he is going to take, then probably we can say
how long the case will last. .

Thfl Attorney General Speak* FIt?
Hoars? Masterly Ul?ec(lvn of tl??
The argument commenced last Friday afternoon
by Attorney Oeueral Gllclulst ou behalf of tho
defendants Id the railroad injunction case now
before the Chancellor's Court at Trenton, wan re
sumed yesterday morning In the presence of a
large influx of lawyers, merchants, farmers and
others, some of whom came irom distant poiuts
of the State to listen to the eloque?t debates and
witty sayings ot the eminent counsel who are
engaged on both sides.
Tho Attorney General confined himself princi
pally to the questions of the exclusive privileges set
up aud claimed by complainants in their bill for in
junction. Tho decision given by chief Justice .
Creen In the Delaware Bay liallroad case aud tho
validity of ihe lease made between the Pennsyl
vania Kallroad Company aud the different united
railroad and canal companies of Mew Jersey formed
strong points In the argument. In relation to
these exclusive privileges, as claimed by the com
plalnauts, he contended that they were all relin
quished eighteen years ago by the Cannlen
and Auiboy Itailroad and Delaware aud Karitau
Caual Companies to the people of the state of New
Jersey; that these companies made a direct com
pionusc iu the year ltsot?; that the companies In
question gave their full consent to an act passed
In 18^4 by the Legislature of the State of New Jer
sey authorizing the relinquishment of those exclu
sive privileges into the hands of the people once
more; that it was passed specially for the benefit
ol the people, and in its provisions commanded
tliem to build and construct railroads throughout
tho state.
He here cited a largo number of statutory author
ities in proof of his allegations, and commented at
length on the mode of legislation which had refer
ence to the question, lie made a powerful appeal
on behalf ol the Intrinsic rights belonging to the
people throughout the State, alter which he re
viewed the decision ot Chief Justice Green In the
Delaware Hay Itailroad case, aud insisted that the
defendants In that case were differently situated
to the defendants iu this, lie urged that there
was no sixth section in any of their charters, as
there Is in tho Stunhope charter, authorizing lliu
transporting of passougers and freight; that there
wns no eighth section, authorizing the merging,
Ac., as is in the stunhope charter; that there was
a vast difference in all the particulars in both cases,
and that the decision ol the Chief Justice was not
at all applicable to the question at is
Hue iu this c.isc. On this subject Mr. Gll
chrlst argued with much fervor, ami '
made a most exhaustive research of tho principal
poiuts in connection with tho present case. The
1 alleged validity of the lease then was taken up by
him, aud stated that In the race 01 the bill for lu
1 Junction the lease iiad 110 existence; that it was
I null and void; that the complainants hud
; no hiug to show that tney had a new lease
1 or title; that the lease in effect was but a
lease of thirty days; that the lease has ex
pired, anil 'they must get a new title.
Counsel further quoted numerous authorities,
! alter which he pointed out the various detects on
the face ol the bill mod by complainants and said
! that 11 should be amended Irom beginning to cud;
I that tho spirit in which It was prosecuted should
I be amended, but It now too late. They had
been now before the Court lor two months, and It
[ was time there should be au end to this vexod liti
gation. As to the charge of fraud made by the coun
1 s/i 011 the other side as havlmr been employed in
! getting the bills and enarters of the Stanhope
! Company passed by the Legislature, Mr. (iilchrist,
' lit ft very forcible manner, replied that there was
noioundatlonto support such uncalled-for charges,
and indignantly denied tho existence at the time
I stated of any such frauds, lie said if Iraud had
I been perpetrated it was on the side or complain
: ants, and concluded by appealing to the Vice Chan
! cellor to dismiss this bill lor injunction, and thereby
I grant to the defendants the l ights to which he said
I they lihd a most J us tillable claim.
Five hours were occupied In the delivery of his
argument, and it is the prevailing opiuion that tho
Attorney (leneral made a most effective appeal on
behalf or Ills clients.
Senator Stockton will commence bis argument
to-day, Immediately alter the opening of the court.
Messrs. Cuvier, Cide, Shlpmuu anil I'arlier will fol
1 low, and the whole week will be takeu up by these
I gentlemen.
