lie swore, in substance, that lie was passing
the main entrance to the hotel an instant preceding
the tragedy, and hastened, with others, to
the private staircase. He succeeded in getting to 1
the landing, halfway np the stairs, and observed a 1
lady who was in advance of him pick np something 1
white and shining, wnlcli she subsequently held ]
above her head and which he then distinctly saw <
was a small silver-mounted pistol, with ivory butt
and elaborate in finish. The description he gave of j
the weapon coincided exactly with that given by j
the parlor man, DeOorley. The lady ascended the 1
Stairs rapidly and disappeared on reaching the | ,
top. Mr. Fullerton, for the prosecution, subjected 1
Ce witness to a rigid and exhaustive cross-exam- |
atlon but railed to Impeach his testimony In any j ,
One essential particular. Mrs. Williams, the cousin j
Of Joule Mansfield, also gave some Important tes- ;
tlmony regarding the Irequently uttered threats ,
Of Fisk against the prisoner in the abode of j
lire. MsnRtlcld- under necullar cirriimsfanees
Jennie Turner, a domestic in the Morse ramlly, ]
was also called, bat, owing to the lateness of the
hour, did not go upon the stand. She will be ex- J
mined on Thursday morning, to which day the (
ease Is adjourned. * :
Oliver S. Dawson has been arrested by Dcpaty 1
Marshal Kehoc. on a charge of having put his name |
en an alleged fraudulent bond in reference to the <
bonding of a canal boat. Dawson has been com- '
Wltted by Commissioner Osborn, in default of ball,
for examination. i
Yesterday James Hughes was charged, before (
Commissioner Shields, with having stolen a quan- ,
tlty of mall bags from the Post Office. The accused
waived au examination, and was discharged on 1
his own recognizance by consent of the District j
Attorney. It is probable that Hughes will be used
as a witness against several parties who have been
held for a similar offence.
Judge Leonard, of the Supreme Court, yesterday
rendered bis decision upon the recent application
an behalf of the Commissioners of Docks for a writ
af mandamus against the Comptroller, compelling
him to pay over to them f600,000, the residue of
proceeds from the sale of dock bonds still In his
possession. lie decides inat the case was not
technically before the Court, and therefore denies
the application, but with privilege to renew the
same without prejudice. The probability Is that
the opening of the new year will witness a renewal
af this lcitul warfare, and that the Dork Commls- .
loners this time will strive to get their case
regularl? before the Conrt, and thus prevent
another defeat on a mere technical ground. An
abstract of Judge Leonard's opinion In the case
Vlll be found In our law columns. j
' There seems a bare posalblUty of the members of j
,the Board of Audit being punished for disobeying |
g peremptory writ or mandamus granted by Judge j
Ingraham. of the Supreme Court, directing them
to audit aud allow the salary of John T. Baker, one |
f the clerks In the finance Department, under
^-Comptroller Connolly. They have till the 8th
Instant to comply with the mandamus or else have
an attachment Issue against them, In which case,
unless furnishing ball, there will be no other alteraatlve
than being lodged In Jan. Judge Leonard,
r the Supreme Court, gave yesterday a decision to
this effect. The points of his opinion embodying j
this decision will be found elsewhere.
The girl Lizzie Dugan, aged fllteen, concerning
whose custody there has been a protracted legal j
eontroversy in the Courts between her mother, |
Mrs. Emma J. Dugan, and Mrs. Jennie A. Rlttner,
was yesterday, by order of Judge Leonard, of the
Supreme Court, assigned to the care of Mrs. Sarah
Chambenain, sister of the first wife of Mr.
Dugan, to whom she was indentured till she Is
eighteen. This ends this part of the controversy.
The civil suit growing out of the alleged assault
by Mr. Dugan on Mr. Rlttner, from the effects of
which the latter Is said to be paralytic and his recovery
doubtful, Is still pending. 1

being excused for a while to accommodate Mr.

and the some scene of badgering between
him and bench was enacted oVOr again. Mh
Tremain then took the witness In hand/or a few
minutes, but elicited nothing new. A few questions
were also put by the jury, when the CouTt
took a half hour reecsa.
TE&TMONY OF'W. F. 0. SHANKS.
William P. G. Shanks, city editor of tue Tribune,
sworn?1 have known the prisoner for about a

followed by two men, apil that tho witness
?tid Stokes watched the biOvetnents of the two
men dogging their footsteps, add finally entered a
carnage to balfie thorn.
Mr. D os bassos contended that the defence had
aid the foundation for the introduction Of such

Mr. Dos Passos continued to argue the question

The Court excluded the testimony and an exception

Stokes at that time* A. I did.
Mr. Trcmain said that he offered to show by
DONOVAN B. EATON
that about midnight, w hen approaching his house,
in this city, after he had ceased to be counsel for
the Eric Railway, that he was attacked and beaten,
ind his life despaired of. Mr. Tremain said that he
understood the Court would not permit that evllence
to be taken, and he stated his offer during
the absence ot Mr. Eaton, with the consent of the
apposing counsel, so that he could have the
benefit of an exception.

THE DOCK COMMISSIONERS.
i " *
Proceeds of the Sals of Dock Heads?
Shall the Comptroller or Doeh Commissioners
Have the Disbursing of the
Funds t?Application tor a Mandamus
Against the Comptroller Denied on
For some time, as is well known, there has been
I a sharp legal controversy between the Dock Commissioners
and the Comptroller on the subject
as to which shall have control of the funds
of the Dock Department, accruing from the
sale of dock bonds. The Comptroller has remaining
in his hands $300,000 of this fund, and
the Dock Commissioners required of the
Comptroller to pay over to them tho entire
snm In balk Instead of delivering it by the piecemeal
to suit Ids convenience, as thus far has been
done with the remainder of tho snm. Mr. Green, bellevintr
himself fnllv eninnwereri to exercise snnreme
control ol the financial part or the city government,
would not hand the fund over to the Dock Commissioners
pursuant to their requisition, (he same I
being counterslgnod, moreover, by the Commissioners
of the Kinking Fund. The result tvas an
application before Judge Leonard, of the Supreme
Court, for a writ of mandamus directing the Comptroller
to honor this requisition. The case and the
length; argument of op|K>aVng counsel wevo fully
reported In the IIehai.d at tbe time. Judge Leonard
yesterday gave his decision upon the application.
It will be seen that he denies the same, but
wholly on technical ground. We give below all the
materu(l points In tbo
OPINION OF Jl'DGE LEONARD. .
The Department of Docks Is Invested with very
extensive power to contract debt on behalf of the
city Of New York in purchasing material for the
conhtfueUpQ of docks una In employing labor in
greeting wharves, piers. Ac., and In clearing slips
and liftslns, abd In acquiring dock property, Ac.
The Commissioners are not called upon by law to
consult wltli 1 ho Comptroller, except in his capacity,
ex officio, as a member of the Sinking l-'untl, in
respect to any of the plan3, contracts or expenditures
of tlieir department, The Commissioners
have tne entire control of the dock property of the
city, Including the leasing and collecting the ,
revenue to be derived therefrom. For the pur- i
nose of meeting the very large expenditures which j
the CohiniisatonerN arc authorized to make in the
execution of the powers conferred upon them by i
section oh of the charter of 1870. as amended by I
chapter 6*4 of the luws of 1871, section 6, the Comptroller.
on the direction or the Commissioners
of the Sinking Fund, is directed to issue bonds of
tne city or New York not exceeding $3,000,000
In any one year nor to be sold at a prlco less than
,par. and the proceeds, when sold, are to be deposited
In the treasury of the said city. The
monoy is to be drawn out and paid by the comptroller
for the objects and purposes provided In
the said amended ^?ctlon f * * upon t lie
requisition of tlie said Hoard or the DePUIIiqeiit
of Docks, i-outiterslgiiea by the Commissioners of !
the biaking Fund. The Comptroller lias Issued
and sold $1,000,000 of the dock bonds, under the
direction of the Commissioners of the Sinking
Fund, given to him in Novcmbor, 1871. He has
paid to the Department of Docks two several snnis
of $1150,000, and the said department lias made a
requisition upon the said Comptroller, countersigned
by the Commissioners of the Sinking Fund, I
for the remaining fftoo.ooo In bulk, but have made
itO STATEMENT OF THE OBJECTS AND PUBPOSES
for which that amount Is required. * * It
is required by section 89 that all money drawn
froth the city treasury shall, be upon vouchers lor
the fcxpfcndltuve thereof, examined and allowed by
the Auditor, approved by the Comptroller and filed
in Ills office. %* * * The Comptroller cannot
properly pay to the Auditor on a debt contracted
by the Department of Docks. He la to pay on the
requisition or that department, countersigned by
the Commissioners or the Sinking Fund, lie must,
as the law requires, have this particular vouchor
for the money raised on the dock bonds before it
can be drawn from the treasury according to law.
The requisition which has been made is
not accompanied by any certificate, stutcnient or
vouchers for the ' objects or purposes" for which
the sum mentioned is required. The Department
of Docks Is not, therefore, technically correctly
before the Court, and on that ground only the application
for a peremptory mandamus is denied
without prejudice to a future motion. *

It Is unnecessary to repeat In detail, they hiring
already been given In the Herald, the facts connected
with the application of John T. Baker, once
on a time clerk In the Finance Department under
the regime of ex-Comptroller Connolly, for a
month's salary. The Board of Audit would allow
only one half the amount claimed. Baker, like
Mr. Baker, insisted on a whole loaf or none. Application
was accordingly made at Supreme Court
Chambers lor a peremptory writ or mandamus directing
the Board of Andlt to audit and allow his
claim. His application was granted, the
writ of peremptory mandamus was served
on cacti member of the Board, aud
they paid no more attention to it than to so much
waste paper. Upon this state or facts the Court
was Importuned to maintain Its dtgn'ty and punish
the members of the Board tor contempt of court
In disobeying Its order. Application to tills effect
was made before Judge Leonard, of the Supreme
Court. At this stage of the proceedings a counter
motion was made by the counsel tor the Board aud
various technical objections Interposed to prevent
the matter coming to a decisive issue. Judge
Leonard having heard the argument and having
had the papers tor examination several days in ids
hands, rendered his decision In the case yesterday.
The leading points of tills decision are given
JUDGE LEONARD'S OPINION.
The gentlemen composing the Board of ApporI
Hon men t and Audit have duties to perform for the
public, and 1 am not disposed to consider that any
j intentional contempt of the Court has been intended
by the neglect which has occurred In obeyI
tng the peremptory writ of mandamus heretofore
l issued. The proceeding by attachment as for a
! contempt is the only remedy whereby the process
can be enforced In case of an omission to perform
Its directions. Accidental defaults obtained
against puolic officers should not be held with
severity upon it appearing that the interest of the
public requires that a hearing should be had. It
appears In tnis case that the notice papers were
duly served, and there Is no denial of that fact.
An'affidavit that no alternative mandamus was
served b uot sufficient. It 19 not alleged by the
relator that an alternative writ was obtained or
served. The proceeding was commenced in June last
i by the service of petition and notice of motion for a
peremptory writ of mundninus and not an ultcrj
native one. Hence the affidavit that no alternative
writ was served is Immaterial. It now appears
I bv affidavit on the part of the relator in his moving
papers that other similar motions were pending in
I July last, when this was reached, involving the
! same questions of law and fact, aud It was then
agreed between the counsel for the relator and the
' counsel for the respondent that one of the motions
| only should b? 4r?u<7 and (hilt the Others should
| abide the result; that under that agreement th*
, ease on the relation of Grant wis argued In July,
and afterwards decided by Judge l'ratt, before
whom it was heard, against the tespondents, unless
they made a lurther return on or before the 7th of
Angust ensuing; that the respondents wholly tailed
to make any additional return, and that the order
A PEREMPTORY MANDAMUS
was entered altef service of a copy of the proposed
order and notice 01 settlement. These lacts are
notdeulcd. * * * I tolnk the length ol time
which has elapsed since the peremptory writ was
granted, the want of any evidence that the facts
now sought to be presented were not well known
to tne respondents when the motion was heard in
the case 01 Grant and the order for peremptory
writ was settled, require that Hie motion for leave
to open the default or for an Issue upon an alternative
writ should lie denied, and that ttic writ of m
tachmcnt, bailable in $200 as to each of the Commissioners,
should issue, unless the terms or the
peremptory writ ol mandamus are compiled with
by the feth of January next.
CLAIM FOR THE COMPTROLLERSHIP.
Mr. Otllen and the Vote* He Received
for Comptroller at the l.aat Election?
He Ailn for a Mandtmai Against the
Board of CanvaMera Direct i or Them
to Give Him a Certificate of Election.
John cillen, u citizen ol the Twenty first ward,
claims to he the loyally elected Comptroller of New
York. lie bases this claim upon the allegation that
he was elected to this important office at the last
election. The Hoard of Canvassers, however, It
appears, view the matter In a different light, and
will not give him a certificate of election. Mr. GilIan
has "gone to law," as the aaylng Is, with a view
to substantiate the verity of his claim. Ills pre|
limlnar.v step was an application yesterday, before
i Judge Inyraham, at Supreme Court, Chambers, for
a mandamus to compel the Hoard of canvassers to
J cauvass tnc vote for comptroller. He based the
application upon a statement made In an affidavit
j of his own, that at the last election he voted
I lor biuiself as Comptroller, and that this vote
JANUARY 1, 1873.-WITH
was sufficient to elect him, there being noopposl- 1
tlon. Mr. Uillen, though no lawyer, urged his own
case with most pertinacious, not to say very eloquent
zeal. He contended that last November was
the proper time for electing a Comptroller.
"Iryou have legal rights,"said Judge Inpraham?
with that gravity for which he la remarkable, but '
evidently laughing in his sleeve, as the phrase
I toes, and regarding the proceeding as a huge
oke?"it Is certainly the duty of the Court to protect
you In these rights."
"Legal rights I certainly have," continued Mr.
GUlen, with solemn earnestness. "Mr. Connolly
WAs re-elected in the same way, and so was Mayor
Hall. 1 swear to my vote; but there were, I am
told, home fliteen hundred others given for me,
and yet the Board of Canvassers have taken no t
account of the votes." ,
"You must get before the Court regularly." In
icrpiwu juage ingranam, "oeiore i can iuae legui
cognizance or your application."
"In what respect am I not regular?" asked Mr.
"Yon must give notice to the Board of Canvass;
ere of the application, so that It may appear and
I "So you cannot regard mv application now?"
i "No, sir."
"Well, sir, I will employ a lawyer, and the Board
shall he duly notified, and I will know the reason
| why I am uot returned as the legally elected Compi
troller of New York."
I rpon this announcement and the underlying
hint of carrying the war into Warsaw, Mr. GUlcn
i took up iii8 papers ana hts hat and withdrew. 1 he |
i ho?t of lawyers throning the court room at the
time were much amused at this threatened attempt
to oust from his snug berth the present custodian
of the city exchequer.
BUSINESS IN THE OTHER COURTS.
Swearing In of Mr. George Bliss, United
States District Attorney?TIic Staff of
Yesterday Mr. George Bliss, Jr., the newly appointed
United fjtntes District Attorney for the |
Southern district of New lork, was sworn into '

incumbout of the office, goes, by election, to the
bench of the Supreme Court of this city, and brings 1
with him to that position the respect and esteem c
of all parties. 1
The staff of the District Attorney's office con- c

men:?General H. E. Da vies, Mr. Thomas Simons,
Mr. A. U. l'urdy, Mr. George S. Sedgwick, Mr. L. \v.

the District Attorney's office for several years. Ire t
Is a studious lawyer, well posted in federal euact- '
rnents,"and has been frequently and successfully
engaged in the trial of Important Internal revenue
cases in court-. r
Mr. Douue, like Mr. Simons, has been an at- a
tache of the office for the past eight years. Ills t
dopartment is mostly confined to the preparation J
j of Custom House cases, and it is entirely unuccea- J
' sarv to say that he lias been always attentive, j;
I faithful and efficient In the discharge of his duties. ,
Mr. A. U. Purdy has been entrusted with the prose- !
I pntion of criminal Irials in court aud examinations

when denouncing criminals to justice. He is to re- .
main as one of the assistants of the new District

the law is above them. ]
Mr. Nicholas P. Hayes has charge of Custom '
House bond suits, lie is constantly and faithfully 11
at his post, aud his attention and politeness to
those who have business to transact with htm will
! be readl'y admitted by all who have had matters to
1 attend to in the office. Mr. Hayes has been live
years engaged in this department, and it is no

in the most thoroughly conscientious manner.
With respect to the officials who retire?General
Davies and Messrs. Sedgwick, Emerson, De Kay

oi those who have had official relations with them.
' General Davies is one of those men who endeavor
i to temper Justice- with mercy, and he may look
back to bis official career with the satisfaction of
being one of tne most popelar principal assistants
who have occupied the same pluce In many years.

THE O'HABE MURDER.
Poat-Mortem Examination?Fearful Brutality?Seal
ding a Dying Man.
Lntc yesterday afternoon Deputy Coroner Marsh
made a post-mortem examination at 303 Kast
Forty-sixth street, on the body of John 0'IIare, the
man who was killed early Christmas morning by
blows on the head with a hatchet in the hands of
John Fitzgibbons, a cobbler living in the same
house. The examination showed that deceased
received terrible fractures of the skull, with excessive
laceration of the brain, which was
done by tnc edge of the hatchet. A most shocking
and brutal feature of the ease is the lact that immediately
alter the fatal blows were inflicted
Mrs. Fitzgibbons, wife of the prisoner, took
a kettle oi boiling water from the stove and dashed
It over the body oi the prostrate and dying mau,
scalding hiin most fearfully on the thighs, back aud
other portions or the body, coroner Young, who
lias the case in charge, Issued a warrant for the arrest
aud she will be held lo await the result of the
investigation, which tukes place next Monday.
Coroner Herman yesterday afternoon received
i note, signed James Morand, in which it was
dated that William Nagei, a child, had died under
auspicious circumstances, corner of 130th street
ind Fourth avenue. Mr. Morand stated that a
prescription given had been filled at a drug
store and nitTlnelicIn? administered to the
-mid, two minutes after which death cntued.
The father placed a small particle of
the medicine on his tongue nud experienced
i severe hnrnlng sensation. The druggist being
ailed upon with a portion of the medicine immcllately
changed It, substituting something else in
ts place, which induces Mr. Morand to heiievc that
the first medicine put up was poison. In short the
writer ot the letter thinks the matter needs Investigation,
and due attention will be paid to It by
The i'.oard of Health will withhold a certificate In
the case lor the present.
