The Grand Jury in a Quan dary. Prominent Bankers Called Upon to Testify? Daniel Drew One of the Witnesses- What is , Thought of the Matter on Wall Street Tbe lock-up of money lias at last been made the Subject of an official Inquiry l>y the Grand Jury. "Yesterday tb^y were engaged upon ordinary busi imu until bait-past eleven o'clock, when they were called to the court room to answer to their names, and to band In the indictments that hud l^eu found by tbem. On their return several of the , leading financiers of the city were examined. The following were the members of the jury: ? William Habcrshaw, foreman; William Kemp, lsaar H. Reed, Jacob Kusself, Robert Campbell, Lucius 8. Comstock, Lcunder Buck, Alfred V. I.eaman, Charles H. Cornell, Joseph Wehrle, John llabcock, Theodore Perry, Samuel Wetmore, Richard Heat lie. Evert Dnyckinck, Tnnls H. Patterson, James 'Iay Xor, George W. Gaitltt, Thuinas Woodward, Morris K. Jesup, Alfred A. Sparks, William Adams, Jr., and William 1). Wellington, The examination was secret, and the officers were told not to mention even the names of the witnesses to the reporters. The reporter of ail afternoon paper, who .iskeil for them, obtained a list ok fictitious names, not one of which was correct. The following are the names ot the witnesses who had been sum moned:? Henry C. Camblos, James nartshorno, James Whlteley, Altred Orjmes, Reuben Mauley, William A. Vermilye, James 8. Paulding, Daniel Drew, Henry tiroes, a representative of Drexel, | Morgan & Co., and u member ot the lirm of Kobin- | son. Chase k Co. Mr. Daniel Drew asked to be ex- j eused. saying that he did not fe"l very well. The i loremau courteously acceded 10 this request and Mr. Drew was excused. Of the remaining wit nesses but five or six were examined, Mr. Pauld ing, Mr. Camblos, Mr. Grymes, Mr. Vermilye, Mr. Graves and Mr. llartshorne. The examination was | not a very formal one. First the foreman would i ask a question, then orie of the jurymen would i want to know something, and so on until the wit- I ness and the Jury seemed 10 be engaged In ;i cosey chat. The examinations ot the different witnesses were similar in this respect,. The jury wanted to know something and the witnesses all said they knew nothing- The jury wanted to know who were the conspirators whe had brought about the extraordinary STRIM1KNCY OF THE MONEY MARKET, and the witnesses, one after the otner, replied, "Can't tell; don't know." Then the jury wanted the wltnes.s to state who did know, and the an swer was again, "Can't tell ; don't know." None of the witnesses, though they were well Rnewn brokers and Were supposed to have considerable information in regard to monej matters, seemed to know anj thine. They were all suffering troni a most extraordinary loss ol memory. Mr. James s. Paulding was the ilrst witness. Foreman? lie kind enough to state to the jury all that you know ot the condition of the money market, the lock-up ot money and who is responsible for it. Mr. Paulding (ruminating antl looking out of the window) ? Well, I don't know much about it. Foreman (after a pause)? Be kind enough to tell us all you know. Mr. I'aulding (still looking out of the window)? i Well, all I know is irom rumor. A solemn pause. The foreman looks at Mr. | Paulding, Mr. fuulding looks out of the window, UK JURYMEN I*OOK AT ONE ANOTHER. Foreman ? Can you give us the name of any per son who has received more than seven per cent per annum lor the use ol mouey? Holemu pause, which lasts three minutes and forty-six seconds and three-quarters. Mr. Paulding (gravely)? i nave heard that a num ber of money-lenders have done so; I'm sure I don't kn?>w whether it's true. Mr. Paulding liuhted a cigar and puffed it leis urely. The foreman looked at. him In amazement. Foreman? You don't know any such parties, then ?< Mr. Paulding? Only from rumor, sir; that's all. Pause. The foreman counts Hit buttons on Mr. Paulding's coat. Foreman ? You cannot tell us the names of any parties, sir ? Mr. Paulding? No, sir, I can't do It. Foreman gaiter consulting the jury) ? Can you tell us the names of any party who could tell us the names of these parties ? Mr. I'auidini? (with au expression of regiet ? most touching to behold \ ? No, sir. Foreman? Mr. Paulding, I'm sorry to observe that there Is a disposition NUT TO UECOLI.ECT ANYTHING. Mr. Panliling (caretully mcasnring the ceiiinjr). Yes, sir, but I'm sure 1 can't tell you anything unless you want me u> repeat all kinds ol Wall atreet rumors. Foreman (courteously)? No, thank you. Et cetera, et cetera. ' The examination proceeds for hall an hour and the jury is just as wise as it was half an hour ago. '-Thank vou," stvs the fore man. Mr. Paulding bows and another witness is called. Mr. I'aulding waits awhile, and then n*ks the foreman :? "I suppose you are through with me, Mr. Foreman ?" "Well, yes," the foreman replies, "yon don't seem to know anything.-' Mr. 1'auldmg answers, "Yea," and darts oet, glad to return to his business. Mr. Vermilye was asked if lie had borrowed money at usurious rates. "Yes," was his reply. Foremaa? Why t Mr. Vermilye? Because I had to have the money at the time. That's all the jury got out of Mr. Vermilye. Mr. Graves was equally cominunu ative. "lie did not know anyone instrumental m bringing about, THIS i.OCK-l (' OF MONEY, and did not know anybody who was en gaged in it." That was answer number one. Au.-wer nnmber two was still more eomprehensive. "Ho did not know ol any lock-up of money, and there certainly was none as tar as he had any knowledge ot it." The Grand Jury adjourned at one o'clock. They will resume. the Investigation tins morning. A I1khai.ii reporter conversed with a number of prom inent brokers yesterday in relation to the subject. When asked what they bought of the Investigation they gave it as their opinion fiat It would not amount to muck. "Money is just as much of a com modity as an v tiling elBe," one of them said, "and any one who knows Wall street can easily tell that they have forty different wuys here to get round the usury laws." ? Opinions of Proiuiiient Hunker* and Urokt'a upon thr t'oiiirmplntMl Repeal. There was no spcclal excitement In Wall street yesterday over the rumored indictments of Wall, street bankers and brokers, for mo one believed that any would be indicted. It was taken in the light oi a street exploded sensation^ aud was paid little attention to. Hut. on the other hand, there was a great deal of talk about the possibility ?l a ? Grand Jnry bringing indictments against bankers and brokers for engaging in wha> they consider perfectly legitimate business, and the indignation at the authorities and the laws lor countenancing such a thing was very great. Instead o> taking things up in this way the flnaiiclal men, iu a rule, arc inclined tu think tl.at the greatest latitude Should be allowed to speculation and that the law should help on a healU-v activity instead of smotli erlng It, as this contemplated movement would seem to oe doing. The fear which was felt at the movement In the Courts could best have been judged of abouf half past two yesterday, when the money market w;u certainly ns excited and crowded as it lias been any time during the pu-t eventlul mouth, and when % above the legal Interest w*s freely bid for it in detancc ol the action of law and (.'rami Jury. For the purpose of sounding the opinions of , financial in- n on the jeer the Usury laws a reporter saw several of t hem at their offices Tester clay.. ami obtained some u rt decided expressions Of Oi lulon. The report r Aim called upon Mr. Va.ll, ?f Uj i Bank oi Commerce. MM. VAII. 8 OPINION. In answer to a question as to his opinion ol 'he Usury Laws, Mr. Van said very decidedly that he though t it would be better fer everybody, men of 1 busiuni-- and isen of finance both, li these lavs ! were r? pealed. "I have held these opinions for years," said Mr. Vail, "and have always been io lavor oflcpeallng them. I believe that it the bank* ! rould lent' money at will the rates Would be lower than wns they practically at". Vjw we never 1 lend mon? v at more than ten f>er cent; but were j tins law repealed we could, for instance, establish a late tor this day off ten per cent. One man 1 woibl think this too hipli Tor Ids purpose, but this ! very act woild leave plenty tor the next man. , Now people pay at the rate of looan?i '-<)<? per cent a year to hn"e money, while legitimately banks | cannot land Its* more than seven. The re ft re, were ! the law repealed, there Would be plenty of money, ; aud a ctoseqneaUv low interest." The reporter tli^o went to -ee Alderman Jtnkins Tan sichat'Jk, at fib offices in Hroad street. ( MK. VAN aCHAtCK'S OPINION. This gentleman, to being questioned, raid:? "Every son* hie tlniUJ' ?al man must tie In favor of I repealing t.be*e laws. This trouble in the Courts kills speculation here s*..<l we art doing not hing. Wall street is f?.>or. It Mr not necessary to repeal the usury laws in the of.'intrv, but simply in the metropolitan district, wher* money Is constantly wanted, no matter at what price. All loans on personal property siionld !* free. Why pawn brokers *fc alio wed to ask a ii'Jfl1 fi4t0 uitjjxtut j on the money they loan on personal property. Should not Wall street be permitted the same advantages V Tills setting a ti.xed rate only tends to imtke money htgher by making It scarce, tor a great many people do not care to lend their money at seven per cent, lu ease of re peal money would he plenty and cheap. Hut the met in, they have people at the headot the Treasury in Washington wiio know no more about finances than I know about the occult sciences." The IlKitAi.n reporter next saw Mr. W. Ileatb at his place of business. , MK. IlKATil'S OPINION. "Of course, the usury laws should be repealed," said Mr. Heath lu answer to the question. "They are absird because people must have money to carry out their contracts, uo matter how they get it. And, besides, these laws arc of no effect except to send money high. In Knglaud they have uo usury laws and money is cheap ? in Massachusetts and in three counties oi New Jersey these laws do not exist, and the same effect is seen. The only effect raking up these laws has had is to send money up la price bccause the 1 1 in id neople who bad money with drew ironi fear oi being indicted, and a lew bold m?n have had it till their own way and have been able to gef as inucti as they cUmsc to demand. Besides this, uui<iwf?l interest cannot be stvppcd. Men lend their money at seven per cent, and a lion us is paid them lor their kindness. This is not usury. And then, again, some careful people make out i w# checks, one for the lawitil Interest and one for the bonus. Yon can't prevent one man giving another money. You may be sure that if tliere*were no laws these timid people I speak of would come back and lend their money f?r what they could get, and then interest would be much lower than it is n iw. The whole thin? is a siock jobblng operation by those who have been short of utoeks. They thought that to bring this matter into the courts would make the lenders afraid and semi money down, instead ol wlilcti it lias had just the contrary etfect. MK. JOHN (IKOKUK'S OPINION. The reporter found Mr. John George, the partner oi Osgood, Chopin and Jay Oonld, busy in Ins office, lie sun! tl.ut the usury laws did no good and ouirht to be repealed. The.v might keep the laws in loVce about real estate because farmers c?uld not afford to let the law lie repealed as far as it related to mortgages. Hut repeal it as far as it related to personal property. Kvcry mau ought to bo allowed to do as lie pleases in this respect. Money would never have been more than seven per cent but for this scare in the courts. That's what sent it up. and only one thing can keep It down? that is. to let people do as they please about the rates they give for money. The reporter then had thebcncfltofMr.il. Knick erbacher'i opinion, lie was of the game mind as the uthcr gentlemen, and thought the Courts could not slop speculation in money. At a time when securities underwent great fluctuations it \<as only right that more than usual interest be paid. If brokers didn't have money and couldn't settle they innst burst; and they will take many risks Before d' ing trils. Mr. II. knlckerbacher requested that his partner's name be not used in this article. Mr. Albert Henrique* also said that It was quite useless for the Conrt. s to stop t*?uey speculation. It would only make them Jook for ways ol getting round the law. m THE WESTFIELD AGAIN. Almost Another Holocaust on One of the Staten Island Ferryboats?Several Ladies Seriously Hurt? A Steam Pipe Bursts and Creates a Panic? A Meeting To Be Held To Let the Company Know Men Are Not Cattle? The Westfield Still Running. The wholesome horror engendered In the public mind against ferryboats In general by the holocaust, on hoard the Westtield, in July, 1871, was apparently productive of some good, inasmuch as it brought about a thorough examination of these fwhited sepulchres." They say, "Before the storm there comes a calm," and it may lie said with equal truth, "After the storm there comes a calm," for this has been exemplified in the case of the Westtield and several other events which have frightened the public into action for its own pro tection. * Alter all the ferryboats leaving New York had been examined and the public satisfied, nothing more was done and ferryboats were left to work out their own salvation. The average passenger who believes "the lightning never strikes the same place twice" would have suspected any boat on the river to^ explode belore the Westteld, he having great faith in the laws of compensation. Notwith standing mis pleasantly 11ELUSIVB BELIEF, an accident happened on the Westtield yesterday which might have been almest as serious as its pre decessor. In lact, it is almost a miracle that no lives were lost, as there were on board, at ttie time of the disaster, no less than two thousand persons. The ferry officials protest an amusing ignorance of any accident on their boats, and, with ministe rial ceuntruaiuves and contldcncc-lnspirlnsr ges tures, tell the Herald reporter that the story of the explosion was false in every particular, and that they could not, for the life ef them, tell why it had been circulated. A gentleman, who was on the Westfield on her einlit o'clock trip from staten Island, gave the fol lowing facts to the representative of the IIekalu. HOW Til B EXPLOSION OCCl'KUKD. A few minutes after the Westtield left Tompkius vllle ? nearly opposite the l.ight House? a whistling noise was heard in the lower part of the boat, and in a few minutes all the ladles, who were in the , lower salnon. eaine running up stairs screeching S and panting. Two ladies Horn Tompktnsville [ tainted, ihose who were in the upper cabin did ! not know what was the matter; but the excited manner of those trom below raised visions ol the last catastrophe on thin boat, nud forthwith every on>' ran ior the deck, some making their exits through windows and ethers through the doors, nnc German lady, with plethoric thighs, attempted to get through a window with a j basket half us large as herself. Her strenuous I efforts broke the handle from the basket and she made a most graceiul bow with her heels while 1 poised her head on the deck outside.- On re ) covering an upright position, she discovered she ! w.is minus the body of her basket. She then at tempted to get ba? k through the window, which, , b\ tills time was crowded with ethers anxious to get out, and here she made a determined staud, In I slating that she would get in. llow well she suc ! cecded the reporter's Informant did not state, lor | he fan to the railing and dropped his little son ; down on the main deck and followed him. The I little boy's leg was broken and the father's ankle ! badly sprained. I In the jam that followed the alarm several ladies were crushed; some, whose names could not be obtained, were seriously bruised, and returned i with their friends on the ucxt boat from New York. Two young MEN JUMPED FKOM THE BOAT, but were taken in again by the deck hands, feeling [ rather chilly alter their bath. The cauwe ol the excitement was that some ol the rubber packing on the pipe joint was blown out, which allowed the steam to escnpe, making n hor rible notse. The steam was turned off and the l Westtield continued on her way to New York wltli I out further mishap. When she arrived at her t- iip in Whitehall street several persons were crushed ' against t he raili&ffS by the swarming crowd, eager i to leave tint Ill-omened tub. and had there been any i heavy wagons ?n board some lives must certainly have been lost. The Westfield made her usual trips during the day, but she carried mord freight tn.m passengers. I On one of her trips she left the slip with but few passengers, while there were fully 300 In the wait ing room whose destination was Staten island. a meeting to BE HKl.P.

Charges that the Mutual Life Insurance Company Bid an Irregular Business? Testi mony of J. E. Buhle and English's Editor ? The Latter Charges that Over $11,000,000 ia Not Accounted for Him. The Legislative Committee on Grievances, in. Btructcd to inquire into the matter between Ste phen English aiyl the Mutual Lite Insurance Com pany, met yc.terday at the Metropolitan Hotel, Mr. llerrick in the chair. The llrst witness called was Shephard Homans, consulting aetuary to the vari ous companies, who testified as to the condition of the New York Mutual Life Company, with which he had long been connected; he had never known Winston personally to cash pr&xies, bnt he had known proxies cashed by McCurdy In 1809; while an officer of the company witness never voted, believing it wrong for an officer to vote; < at the time of the election of Childs Mr. Winston collected proxies to vote and delcat Childs, but lie declined to use the proxies, and Childs was clected; William Moore, a trustee, was left oir tnc list ?r trustees bv Winston because he was in opposition to the company; Winston had power to put any one in by voting proxies; it was Winston who left him off; Moore was not a policy-holder and opposed the dividend system insisted on toy the officers ol tlic coropsuy ? witness described the various plans adopted to distribute the sarplus of the company during his connection with it; the average interest per an num for invested money has been a fraction over six per cent; there is no such thing as profits in a mutual company ; the dividends are merely returned to the policy-holders; it is the practice of the American companies to pay a percentage | to the agent on the amount ol the premium; the return of surplus to policy-holders was pro-rate according to the amount 01 the premium paid; the post-mortem dividends were withheld lor nine months, and he saw by the annual report they are still withheld; he knew or eases where the company re (used to pay them up to the present; one case is Mr. Hopkins, of Baltimore, who has not been paid, although the committee ordered it paid; witness asked Mr. Winston to pay it; his answer was not specific; It was not paid; if he had access to the books he could rive other cases where post-mortem dividends were not paid ; the total income and ratio ot expeuses of the company are calculated to deceive the public and are not correct, and I know of no other company where this method is pursued; the report for 18*2 oi the com pany was properly given, and would not deceive the nubile; in his opinion proxies should be limited to one year; in the majority of companies the policy-holders L-xercis<> voting privileges as well as | stockholders; the Widows and orphans', the United States, the Guardian and the New Vork Lite Companies permit this; when Winston ordered that no post-mortem dividends be paid I consid ered it was to shield nun irom his illegal mode of making dividends; when 1 was ordered to audit the account I believed It illegal, and considering it un attempt at coerciou, I refused to audit it; this led to the change of the system of dividing dividends ; Professors Itartlett and Church devised a plan ol dividing the surplus; I maintained it was unsafe and incorrect, and so Informed the Presi dent by letter, and finally they made a new plan saying their first was incorrect. William h. Dodge called for experts to decide whether witness or the professors were right. Kliiah Wright and his associates decided against the professors and roc oin mended a slight modification of witness plan; In their uext division of surplus thev violated the charter of the company, a mistake the president has endeavored to rectify at an expense of 1)00 too: witness' protest against such division Is on' Hie in the office; the witness was questioned as to the bonus given officers ami agents, and stated that, all participated except the secretary ; ss the testimony Uiken by Oeoige w. Miller was copyrighted and published by the company. it may have been to prevent other companies agents to use it to the detrimeut of the New Vork Mutual Company; had known English about five years; was not present at an altercation between him and George W. McCullogh; never heard of any one being prevented from being present at the Miller investi gation of the atfatrs of the company; the commit, tee did not fully exonerate Winston ill t tie negotia tion of the lieastead loan; the majority report complimented him; moneys were advanced to the Stale agent without the authority of the Board, ami an attempt at concealment was made by stat ing that it was cash; Isaac G. Pearson, one ol the committee disapproved of this; before English made the charge Luolen Robinson and others said that the company were using influence to get an Insurance superintendent appointed ; If was not charged that tills was done to shield them for mal approprlat ion of the company's funds: had heard that McCurdy and Winston had ente ed Into a con spiracy to give out that Stephen English was mad; saw this In a Newark insurance paper; witness re signed on the sixth day of lieceiauer last, as con suiting actuary lor the Mutual Lile: nc\er recom mended a reduction ol rates by the company, nor said they ought to be reduced. This closed the cross-examination of Mr. Ileinans, whlcti was con ducted by Mr. Sewell for the Mutual Life company. John Oliver, loreman of J. M. Bradseet A Co., testitled that thev printed English's paper: we re ceived letters from Sewell. A Pcarse, threatening us il we printed any libels in the Insurance Times; they would Mr. Sewell objected, unless the original letters were produced; copies were shown hliu which he recognized; the one irom Sewell A Pcarse wtw admitted, as well as two others irom counsel, representing George W. Savage and W. F. I'hlpps, who, it is alleged, English libelled also; all the letters were read, and witness stated that in con-* sequence the llrrn jefused to print the Iwuraace Tinlis. j. E. Buhle, of the Universal Life, and formerly of the Mutual Life Company, as bookkeeper, testified as to the lieastead loan, but his evidence was un important: he testified that he had often, heard charges against Winston prior to those made by English: among the charges was fir-i That the loan to lieastead ot was Illegal. frriH.d?

Quartermaster, of an Old Shipmaster, of the Keeper of Sambro Light, of the Signal Man at Sambro Light and of the Keeper of Chebnoto Light Halifax, April 13, 1873. The official Investigation Into the cause of the loss of the steamship Atlantic was resumed Satur day morning at eleven o'clock. KDWAKD OWKN8 was sworn, and testified as follows:? I was quartermaster on board the steamer Atlantic when she was lost; was la my bed when she struck; was relieved and went below at twelve ; heard the third officer, Mr. Brady, on be ing relieved, give orders to keep a sharp lookout for Sambro Light; my place between ten and twelve was near tUe lee-side of tue wheelhouse, standing by to heave the lead if ordered to do so; the lead lines were all ready to use during my watch; there was a deep sea line and two spare lines to use if one did not reach bottom; Burdy hove the log between half-past nine and ten, but do not know what speed she was going; then 1 hove the log at half-past eleven, and she was then going eleven knots; she was steering at twelve o'cleck, when 1 went below, N. E. by N. Yt M. ; had been steering that course from ten o'clock ; did not know anything of the position of the ship, only that 1 bad been ordered to keep a sharp lookout for the light; the fastest I ever knew the ship to go was thirteen and a half knots; we then had a strong easterly gald, and all sail set; 1 was the llrst to attempt to go from the ship to the rock with* a line; Captain Williams ordered me to go, and then to try and save others; I saw Thomas come ashore ; I stopped on the shore and assisted until the last person jfot ashore; Thomas went away as soon as he got to land, and I did not see liirn again; 1 have been a lorn? time employed as quartermaster in different steamship lines: made seventeen voyages in the Ncstoria; all use the common log; we had thrse of the patent logs, but never usert them; they are sometimes used in inman's employ, and especially when near land ; do not know why they are not more used ; her average speed during the nignt, 1 should judge, was about ten and a hall or eleven knots: without wind or sails she conld not make more than eight or nine knots; I did not know .what laud we were making when we struck ; it was not my business to know this, and 1 old not ask. By Mr. McDonald? We wore eleven days from the time we loft'Qneenstowu till we bore up tor Halifax coast; cannot tell what, speed she would need to attain to go that distance in that time ; 1 cannot account lor how she made the land as soon as she did. The Commissioner remarked that it was four teen and a hah hours from the time she bore up to the time she struck, and to make that distance she must, nave averaged a speed of twelve knots, and risked witness how he accounted for the discrep ancy between that laet and the statements that had been made that she only ran up eleven knots v Witness said that ne could not answer the ques tion ; if the vessel was only going eleven knots she would not have been within seven miles ol the shore at the time ihat she struck. The witness was handed a pencil and paper, and directed to divide 17o miles by fourteen hours, but he said I do not understand ciphering to-day; 1 understand navi gation and have worked navigation as far as second mate's work, bat do not understand cipher ing. (He was told that lie was putting himself in a very dangerous place, as he was on oath, but he persisted in the above auswerj. 1 was the only quartermaster who kept the log of the ship's daily work. TESTIMONY OK CAPTAIN COFFIN. Captain Peter Coffin was sworn? Have been a shipmaster for the past thirty-five years or more; was pilot lor the Cuuard steamers for twenty-live years; always went on board of the Cunarders when they arrived here; went in them to Boston una back; was relieved lroin that service in the be ginning of 1868, or rather 1 ended with 1807; i became very familiar with the Nova Seotia coast and its lights, as much as any man could be probably; sambro light is the same now as it was wnen I used to sail as pilot; we used to make sambro Light at a distance of sixteen to eighteen miles when . approaching Irom the westward; when near in sr the light at times, it is far plainer at twelve miles' distance than at six at other times; I never had any difficulty in seeing Sambro Light when 1 could m?ke out the horizon; If the light was not visible at any time we did not continue our course; I think the light should have I been seen, II the horizon was clear; I think that a ' mistake must have been made in the clearness of the her lzon; the horizon is sometimes decep tive; on one occasion 1 ran lor Sambro Light, Intending to pass three miles south of it; the horizon appeared well delined, but I it proved to be obscured by a dense log I that had settled upon it: saw nothing of the light, I until we saw the island on which the lighthouse stands square on the beams, and then, when I saw the land, I conld not see the light, owing to the fog settling down until it had obscured the light; I would not iiave attempted to run In on that oc casion ; I never would venture to r?n up to Halifax harbor during the night until I saw Sambro Light unless In case of an emeigcncy : on another occa sion, in .lune, 1 found a very stiff current setting me in towards Margaret's Bay; I never mot these currents outside of three miles from the shore; sometimes, with a southerly wind setting on shore, I have round a strong northerly current setting off shore; on board the Cunard steam ers we aiwa.vs paid tke greatest atten tion to soundings; always sounded except when I was sure that it was clear and I made out the light distinctly ; on one occason I saw the Hash of the guns at Sambro when It was too thick to see tue light: from seven to cignt easterly direction would be enough to allow for the set ol the current; 1 used to allow this in steering a vessel alter shaping her conrse ab ut one hun dred and sixty miles to the southward of Halifax. By Mr. Shannon? The rote on the shore is very uncertain ; it may sometimes be heard a mile away, and at other times not a fourth of that distance; the land can be seen five or six miles away on a line night; the currents do not vary so much with the seasons of the year as they do with winds; they are sometimes very strong in May and June ; on the occasion referred to above the horizon was thick, the tog low and the stars visible. TESTIMONY OF WILLIAM (lll.KEY. William Gilkey testllled? I am the keeper of Sam bro Light; have been such for twenty-seven years; recollect the night ol the 31st of March and the morning of the 1st of April; 1 attended the light at ten o'clock at night, and again at two o'clock; it was very bright ; at ten o'clock the weather was very hazy, wind south-southwest, raining heavy and sea running: I ilred two guns then; at two o'clock the weather remained hazy and the sea still very high; the wind was not so high; I could' just distinguish Chebucto Head Light, iour and a halt miles distant; ilred two more guns; about three O'clock the wind had shifted to West-SOUthWCSt ; some stars were appearing, and the weather was clearing; the sea was very heavy: afterward the wind hauled to the northward and blew heavily. (IKO. HKAD testified? I am a gunner in the Royal Artillery; am stationed at Sambro Island to fire signal guns, in response to signals at sea and on foggy nights: I flred two guns at ten o'clock on the night of the 31st of March owing to the fog, and tw? more at t wo o'clock ; the light was burning brightly all the time; I was on <luty from midnight to six A. M. ; at three o'clock the weather was a little brighter than at two o'clock. EPWAKD .IOTTN8TON testified? I ani keeper of Cneiiucto Head Light.; at eleven o'clock on the night of the 3lst I could not see sambfo Light, but at three o'clock I could, and also Meagher's Beach Light ; my light was burning brightly all night. The court then adjourned until half-past two o'clock on Monday. The Passengers' Property, Halifax. April 13, 1873. The cvidcnce of one the magistrates, In relation to his action at Prospect, was or a most unsatisfac tory character, and lelt the impression that he had not dealt fairly with the property lie recovered. He tried to hold on to it n u til he got a guarantee for his expenses, but eventually, in response (o the collector's peremptory demand, he delivered all except two watches and a ring belonging to i J. II. Price, which, he says, he gave to Freeman I), i Markwald of New York. That gentleman has left I for home. The other magistrate, Mr. Ityan, kept a I list or all he recovered, with identification where | lound. Stwi from the Atlantic Wreck. Halifax. April 13, 1873. Beyond the saving of a few packages of goods nothing was done at the Atlantic wreck yesterdays Last night and this morning there was a very heavy southeasterly gale blowing, and vessels ar riving to-day report a very heary sea outside. It is fearttl the ship will break np. The schooner oleka, at Yarmouth on the flth inst. from Halifax, reports on the 4th, off Sambro, she picked up a griyn pine chest, marked "Dennis Keffe New York,* or "Kennev ;" also a leatlier boutid trunk, marked "W. B. VV. T., New York," only the llrst letter of the surname remaining. The trunks were probably from the wreck of the Atlantic. t THE GOODRICH^ MYSTEBY. The latest contribution in the matter of meagre information concerning the murder of Charles Goodrich was furnished by the Coroner yesterday. The official whose duty it is to ascertain the man lier and cause of the death of Goodrich has re ceived the following communication from New York New Tom, April II, 1873. Coroner Wiiitunnx:? Sir- I premimr Mri. Mover* now under custody, has full knowing, win, was tire murderer ol Goodrich. Now, I u, U >?u desire a woman a? detective go to 1(0 Lewis ?treet? Mrs. Mott No one be Tore her can bold a dead were). I nay this a ? I have seen IL She in n lady well known in hltfh circles In Brooklyn, and her valuable neli-kuuwledtfe u a wonder, and would be In thin vast- sure. C. 11. F. H.? I have understood she leaven town thin wi'i'k. C. H. It Is not knowu what fiction will be taken in the matter, iih the police have not been at all smccess fnl In their elforts, up to the present writing, to detect anything In the case at all. On Friday last they were obliged to dispense with the services of MrH. Raymond, a female detective, who they hiul fondly but vainly hoped would be able to glean more information from Mrs. Lacette Meyers than she had imparted to the authorities. Mrs. Mott's prospect of detective employment are about co equal with the police chances of earning the $2,ft00 reward upon the conviction of the murderer. The ? Inquest will be resumed before Coroner VVlntehlll this evening. THE HOBOKEN HIVE. Panto Among the Depositor*, and a Run On the Institution? 1:40 Creditor* and $44,000 Paid Yesterday? Excitement Subsiding, and Klenen Still At l<arge. As was foreshadowed in yesterday's Herald, a vast number of depositors grew feverish yesterday morning, and by the time the bank was opened upwards of sixty Individuals crowded round the door. The olllclals were promptly at hand, and lost no time in making payments. From ten o'clock until three, eighty-one depositors were paid off. These were chieily women and illiterate men who had 110 means of determining the actual ?state of affairs, except by the mischievous rumors Which a few hungry sharks ireely propagated. Never were the words of the Mountain liard in re gard to " fickle rumor that gathers new strength travelling " more exemplified than in the case of the poor, struggling depositors. HALF "GLAD MEN, AND RAGGED WOMEN with babies in their arms, waited anxiously near the door till their turn came to receive what they seemed to be doubtful of recovering. The treasurer of the bank repatred to New York and exchanged $30,000 worth of United States bonds for hard cash to meet the demands. In the meantime several of Haboken's most trusty and respected citizens arrived and endeavored to calm . the excited throng. Rev. Fattier C'auvin came also to the scene, and bade the people to go home and have no fears. More tliau hall of the assemblage Immediately retired quietly to their honms at his request. When the bell tailed three, however, the remaining persons growled fiercely on weeing tit# doors closed, aud were quite unsnariug In their execrations of-the man who hud brought suoh care upon them. At six o'clock the doors were again tiirown open, but the crowd was comparatively sparse. Forty-five other pass-books were examined now, and their owners got their just amounts, in comparing the pass-books with the RECORDS OF THE BANK, further deficiencies amounting to $200 were dis covered. This is the most assuring feature of tho case. It was reported by some that there existed many large discrepancies similar to that in Mr. Schloos' account, but inasmuch as none snch were discovered, it may be salel.v presumed that pecula tions of tiiat description cannot reach any consid erable sum. Couiormably to the announcement yesterday, ?a few land-sharks Induced some de posltors to part with their books at three per cent discount; but such lnstanoes were happily rare. Nevertheless they go to show the existence of that vullurlne species of humanity that would rob the pennies from a dead man's eyes. At eight o'clock in the evening all ex citement seemed to have subsided for the time being, though there are yet many persons whose anxiety can not be gratified by lyiytriiug short of a withdrawal of their little store Iroui the bank. The directors are determined to convert all their bonds and securities if necessary to meet the re fuireraents ol those who call upon them, he condition ol the institution is the same as has already been published, ami Its effect upon the enlightened classes may be Inferred from the fact that $2,662 01 was deposited by various parties. The exact amount of payments is $4;!, soti 23. Mr. Klenen has not yet been raptured, but. the New York detectives are on his track? a palpable snub to the detective system or lloboken. An aged man named Hoyt Sandlord has been ap pointed to fill the vacancy. It is expected that the unwarranted panic will die out In a lew days. MARRIAGES AND DEATHS. Married. Edwards ? Sqi'ier. ?
