The Sovereign's Reception by the Ple beians of the East End. , DECLINE OF THE LIBERAL ADMINISTRATION British Sentiment on the Loss of the Atlan tic? Literary, Art and Theatrical Notes by a Herald Correspond ent on the W ay to Vienna. London, April 5, 1873. Prom tbe present aspect or Londou you would eay that tbe season was at Its height. Only a few years ago It was not considered correct to be seen in town until after Easter; but we have changed ' all tbat, and the Prince and Princess of Wales, by whose movements society regulates Itself, are too glad to recommence tbelr round of dinners, Dulls, theatres and other metropolitan delights. Al though the Prince takes his share of hunting and shooting he is not a sportsman au fond, and as he does not hanker after such matters, his frequent appearance in the hunting Held on the moor or in the coverts must be regarded as conciliatory sacri fices to English popular tastes. There is no doubt tbat the Prince pays much more attention to the t cultivation of his reputation among his future sub jects than he used to be.ore his Illness, and he reaps his reward in a vastly extended popularity. 1 notice this in the great difference of his recep tion by the people in the street or at the theatre. From tbe time of TDK MORDAUNT DIVORCE CASE SCANDAL until he was prostrated at Sandringliam scarcely a hat or a voice was raised to greet or cheer him; now be is welcomed with all the l old enthusiasm. Apropos of this question of t loyalty a funny story is Dcing told. At the dinner given by the Lord Mayor to the Oxford and Cam bridge crews, alter the boat race, the stroke of the Cambridge boat, m returning thanks, is reported by the newspapers to have befcn inaudible. Hut tbe real lact Is tbat his words were only too plainly heard. Alter a lew commonplaces he said that be desired to express the great pleasure which he and his fellows felt at the fact that the race was honored by ihe presence of one whom they all liked? "he meant the Prince of Wales, 'The Coining K .' " This allusion fell like a bombshell among the audi ence, for "The Coming K " is the title of a poem, in which the Prince, his associates and Ills supposed tastes are so vehemently satirized that its publica hud been suppressed. The remark was received witb dead silence, and the young man sat down, feeling sorry that he had spoken. T1IE QUEEN'S VISIT TO VICTORIA PARK. Few Americans, however well acquainted with London, know anything about Victoria Park, the ppot to which the Queen paid a flying visit on Wed . neaday morning. It ib far away at the East End, beyond Shoreditch and Uethnal Green, and is the one attempt at rurality, the sole place where the fresh turf growa and the^reen trees wave aud the limpid water trickles for the free enjoyment of the poor laboring classes of the East End of London, the Spitalflelds weavers, tbe struggling population of Hackney and Shoreditch. The visit was a de cided success. Some disappointment has since been expressed at the rapid rate at which the ^ Queen travelled, which is ascribed by some to pre . vision on the part of the police authorities, who were uncertain of the temper of the people. If this be so, no mistake could nave been greater. The offlclala present declare that the reception of the Queen was in every way hearty and enthusiastic, . and that the welcome accorded to her by the com mon people of the East contrasted very favorably i with that which she is in the habit oi getting from the fashionables of the West Kurt. CABINET INFELICITIES. There seems to be a general feeling of sorrow among politicians that the recent crisis did not re sult In the expulsion from office of the present Miiristrv, not that there Is any great feeling about i replacing them by any particular set, the one point on which all men are agreed being that the length of time during which the members of the ,i>reseut government have been in power has made (hem irritable and despotic and rendered It most desirable that the cards should be shamed. Mr. Gladstone seems to me very much changed In ap pearance since last session. His cheeks wero always hollow, and he never had much color, but bis complexion is now of a dull, ashy gray, his face is very wan, his eye has lost its lire, and, instead of that angry, Irritable manner which he always ?bowed in debate, and which gave him so much THE APPEARANCE OF A SAVAGE HAWK, ' ne seems spiritless and depressed. It is rumored "that the worst thorn in Mr. Gladstone's side is Mr. Lowe, the Chancellor of the Kxchequer. Mr. Lowe's natnral bad temper, want or courtesy and ; great delight in exercising his sharp powers oi "snubbing" have given great oiTcnce to the heads o( various government departments, and in one or two instances there has been almost an tepen outbreak against Mr. Lowe's decisions and /the manner In which they were conveyed. In de , lault of any other victim a certain portion of the press and the Parliament have been trying to in stigate the public against Mr. Scudamore, the originator of the government telegraphs, on the ground that he has spent unauthorized sums on the extension of his projects. Mr. Scudamore, how ever, is far too clever a man not to be provided | with a sufficient answer, and the public will find in V the trial for perjury of the Tlchborno claimant, "which comes on in a lew days, a lar mere legiti mate object for their excitement. PROSPECTS OF THE VIENNA FAIR. The interest aDout the Vienna Exhibition seems to be as great here as It is in New York, and you meet scarcely any one who Is not going there at some time while It lasts. The Prince of Wales has i le up a party to attend the opening. From all ve learned the American portion of the show, igh somewhat late in its arrival, will be e extensive and more Interesting than originally supposed. Dr. Ruppaner of the American Commissioners speaks very I of the prospects of iho United States ex tors. The Doctor, who has heen staying for last week at the Langham? that hoise which ich a very bad Imitation of an American hotel? laking his way via the Tyrol to his post. Oen Van Buren, the chief United States C'ommis ter, leaves London to-night and goes through ict to Vienna. EXCITEMENT OVER TIIE ATLANTIC WRECK. ie loss of the Atlantic has created more ex ment here than any other shipwreck in my re nbrance. There Is no doubt that the size and 9d of the vessels belonging to the White Star , their luxurious fittings and appointments, won over vast numbers of persons, who for rs had been staunch adherents of other com ies. There were some, howtver, who felt that lldenco in the officers was more desirable than ifort in the staterooms, and that no amount of 10 and electric bells could make up for want of erlcnce or lack of discipline. At this e of the year tho America bound ships vey but rew saloon passengers, and though ourse. the loss of every human life makes its rowful mark in its own immediate circle, aud, ugh tho death of every I IRISH OR OKKMAN EMIGRANT BRE AD-WINNER b disastrous to those he leaves behind as thougii were In a higher station, the death-roll of the lutic contains but few weil-known names. Ono h, however, Is to be found there, that of Mr. us M. Fisher, an American gentleman who, for crai years, has been practising as a lawyer In idun, aud w ho was liigiiijr esteemed, not merely by his own conntryraen (be acted m a kind of extra official logai adviser of the United states Legation), bat by many Englishmen with whom he had be come intimate. JOURNALISTS, ARTISTS AND ACTORS. In literary circlet* there is not much stirring. The } fia 'simincr, a weekly journal once edited by Leigh Hunt and subsequently by Albany Ponbianque and John Forster, bnt whicu has bit by bit lOBt its tone, is endeavoring to reoover its literary status, and is the organ cnosen by Mr. Swinburne for the publica tion (torn week to week of a series of new sonnets by him. Mr. Mowbray Morris, the manager or the Times, has returned to work alter a long absence, owing to serious illness, which he has passed in Italy. Mr. George Augustus Mala has been for the last ten weeks confined to his bed by a severe attack of acute erysipelas extending from the waist to the feet, which at one time looked very serious. It is hoped, however, that the danger is now passed, and the patient has been removed to the seaside at Hastings, in a state of com parative convalescence. MR. WILKIR COLLINS baa at last decided on visiting America next year in a public capacity and giving readings from some of his works. He has concluded an engagement to this effect. IN TDK REALMS OP ART there Is a lull, professors beginning to rest after their labors, for this is the week during Vlilch works intended for exhibition at the Royal Academy have to be submitted for con sideration, and Sunday last was what Is known among the Initiated as "picture Sunday," when every artist keeps open house and all bis acquaint ances drop in to see what he proposes to send to the academy. These brethren of the brush no longer live in high attics in dingy quarters of tne town, sucfh as Thackeray loved to depict. Thanks to the mania for picture collections which has of late years been rife among rich Manchester mag nates and cotton lords, not merely our lead ing artists, but men of average capacity realize such prices for their woric as enable them to live in comfort. In the suburbs of the great city the; mostly congregate, Kensington and Brompton, St. John's Wood and Uampstead being greatly affected by thom. In the roads thereabout, drawn up be fore pretty villas, each recognizable at once by its annexe of studio, with its huge " north light" window, as AN ARTIST'S RESIDENCE, may, during the past week, have been seen vehicles of all descriptions, from the dowager-peeress' heavy swinging chariot to the actress' light coup*1, with its sky-terrier dog lolling out of the window. The owners of these vehicles were inside the houses inspecting the pictures about to be sub mitted to the consideration of the council of the Royal Academy. As to the composition of that council, und of the manner in which its decisions are given, I purpose to write In a future letter. MATTERS DRAMATIC ARE DULL also, for is It not the season of Lent, and during that period are we not by act of Parliament and various other obligations forbidden to be amused ? I have, however, comc In time to see two plays, the fame of which had reached me on the other side of the water, one of these is "Charles the First," at the Lyceum Theatre, wherein the principal character is rendered by Mr. Irving, with a depth and delicacy of tenderness and a subtle appreciation of the more reflned attributes of the character such as are sel dom seen. I was also very much struck by the forcible and perfectly quiet and natural acting of Miss Isabella Bateman as the Queen. 1 had heard it said that In one of her great parts the late Miss O'Neil used to shed real, scalding tears. This feat I saw performed by Miss Bateman, with the result of inlcction, hankerchiefs being fteely used in every part of the house. The other play which I saw was "Man and Wife," a dramatic version of Mr. Wilkie Collins' novel of that name. It Is but a poor piece? a skeleton of the original story, with but little in terest, and not hanging closely together. But it is acted a merveiUe? there is not a small part, even of a few lines, which is not played by some artist Of position. When I have spoken of this company (the Prince of Wales' Theatre company) in New York 1 have been told that most of their plays have been acted at Wallack's and elsewhere, and, it has been added, far better than as originally played. I should like the New Yorkers to see "Man and Wile" with its present cast. So far as I saw, with all their good individual acting, they have no com pany to match It in their city. EDMUND YATES. NEW YORK CITY. The Comptroller received yesterday from taxes, Croton run i, assessments for street openings and arrears die sum total 01 $13,369. Josephine Klnjr, a vagrant, was thrown violently to the ground vestorday by Oliver E. Plpper, of 157 Last Flitleth street, and severely Injured internally.

A lecture will be delivered in Yorkville Hall, in East Eighty-sixth street, this evening, by Mr. Ste phen J. Meany, on "Tlio Poets and Poetry of Ire. land." The object of the lecture is to aid a party ol young gentlemen of Yorkville in purchasing a boat lor a boat club which has recently been started there. Mr. Frank Haker, formerly a well known and successful broker on 'Change, who possessed plenty ol capital and was employed in heavy specu lations. and a "member ol the Board," was found dead in his bed yesterday morning. He nail pre viously at intervals been subject to apoplectic strokes. He left a fortune of $300,000. The Challenger was to sail from Bermuda for Sandy Hook on the 20th April, In order to sound two section lines between the Bermudas and the American Continent. The ship will proceed irom oil' Sandy Hook to Hall lax, arriving there about the 11th of May. She will leave Halifax for Bermnda about the 18th of May, preparatory to crossing the Atlantic a second time. The Italian Association of the Italian citizens of New York passed, ?n Monday last, a rcsolutio n to establish an Intelligence office for the purpose of procuring work for the Italian immigrants. Those who are in need oi laborers can apply at No. 123 White street. This philanthropic resolution will, it Is hoped, bnnellt the Italians in this city who are destitute aud without employment. Lawrence Golding, a young man of twenty-one years, formerly a hotel keeper, who had been com mitted to the Tombs by Justice Ilogan on a charge of intoxication, died early yesterday morning. He was married aud lived in Perth Amboy, K. J., and is suiti to have been very respectably connected. Coroner Kectian held an inquest on the body, which was subsequently taken in charge by the lrieuda lor interment. At half-past four o'clock yesterday afternoon nn Irishman named John XcDermott met with a se rious accident on board the ship City of Mcrida, lying at pier No. 3 North River. He fell from the main deck through the hole, a depth of thirty-five leet. He was so seriously Injured that the doctor thought his recovery impossible. The poor man Is forty-nve years of age ami has a taniily of seven cnihlren, besides his wile. To them his death would be a serious blow, because they depend on him mainly for support. At a meeting of the Palestine Commandory, No. 18, of Knight Templars, held on Monday evening, the following sir knights were elected and In stalled for the ensuing year:? El wood E.

JEBSET'8 MACHINE OF DEATH. Thomas Delany, a brakeman on a Trenton coal train, met with a dreadful accident yesterday at Holmcaburg junction, on the Pennsylvania Rail road, which resulted in his death in about flrtecn minutes afterwards. It appears that the train on which the unfortunate man rode bad to switch oir on a side track in order to make room for the half-past twelve train, which was speeding along from Philadelphia. After the switching had been done Delany stepped on to the main track, lust In front of the approaching train, and thereby received a tremendous jerk from the locomotive, mashing and lacerating his hodv In a horrible manner. Deceased, who was a resident of Bordentown, leave* a family. His remains were Immediately taken thither for inter tueuu SALE OF THE THIRD AVENUE RAILROAD. Where lh? Gilbert Elrvnlrd Railroad 1? to be Locnt<(i~Wlint Is Proposed to be Don* With tlie Stock of the Third Avenue Kmilrond? The Proposed Plan Certain of Accomplishment. Yesterday the proposals for the purchase of the Third Avenue Kailrond by the New York, Boston ami Baltimore Itailroad Company, on behalf of the Gilbert Elevated Railway, were poshed forward considerably. It Is now known that two-thirds of the stockholders of the Third Avenue Railroad have agreed to sell at $165 per share. It iB believed by all concerned, not only stockholders of the road, but property owner*, that it will be a great advantage to the Third Avenue road to make this sale. Far seeing men have tills fact very clearly before them, that somebody will be certain to build TIIE ELEVATED ROAD, and the Third Avenue stockriders think it would be better in their bands than in those of other peo ple. It will not Interfere with the running of the cars on the present road, as the cars on the elevated road will only stop at every ten blocks. Inde pendent or the way-traftlc, as it may be culled, it is expected that a large number of passengers will take the horse-cars for the purpose of overtaking the cars on the elevated road at the next depot. TUB VALUATION OK THE THIRD AVKNGK ROAD is reckoned at about five and a quarter millions. At present the proposal is only under considera tion, but great progress towards an ultimate de termination has been effected during the last lew days, and it is almost certain that the stock holders of the Third Avenue load will be unani mous wlien the question Is submitted, which it will be shortly, for their llnal judgment. LEGISLATIVE TOWERS are obtained Tor this transfer in chapter 885 of the Laws of 1872, in the toUowiug clause: ? Ski'. 3.? The corporation hereby created shall posses* all tli? rights, powers and privileges, and be subject to all tiio provisions of tin u< t entitled "An net to authorize the formation of railroad corporations and to regulate the same," passed April : I , lHfiO, ,ind the several acts amenda tory thereof, except as far us the provisions ot the said act are inodltled by or are inconsistent with the provis ions <>l tills act; ami the said corporation is hereby au thorized and empowered to muke, construct ami main tain an elevated railway, to be operated by the plan known as "Gilbert's Improved Elevated Railway," over, through and along streets, avenues, thoroughfares and places in and of the said city of Sew York, and to con struct, maintain anil operate the said tubular ways and railways by utmosplieric uower, compressed air or other power, together with the necessary, sidings, statisns, switches, turnouts, platforms, stairways, elevators, air reservoirs und connecting tubes tor the transmission of power, telegraph anil slynul devices, and all other ap pliances requisite to convey passengers, mails and mer chandise, as contemplated in this act, and in the said system of railways over the streots, roads, squares and avenues herein mentioned.

The last section of this clause enables the Tliird avenue road telocatc the Gilbert Elevated road on their line. The work of the latter road Is steadily progressing, all the material being dully accumu lated, and when the powers from the Third Avenue road ure obtained, in a few months afterwards work will commence, and the Elevated roau will be an accomplished fact, and the difficulty of rapid transit up town will speedily be a thing ol the past. A BAILIFF AFTER BERGB. A Bench Warrant Itincd for the Hu manitarian?Ball Fixed at |1,0U0? Bergh To Be Arretted To-Day. Could the noble horse and other dnmb creatures whose god is Henry Bergh read nonpariel the Herald this morning would carry to each and every one of them tidings of grief unutterable. It is simply the dnnger that threatens their great protector, advocate and friend. Could they com prehend the fact that before his breakfast has been comfortably digested a blonde bailiff, In the person of Order of Arrest Clerk Judson Jarvls, will be knocking at the domicile of Bergh to ruthlessly tear him away from his kindly offices, every horse in the metropolis would sally to the rescue and kick the brains out of the daring Sheriff who would put uniioly hands upon their patron, Saint Bergh. Yes, such is the lact. Saint. Bergh is to be thus ruthlessly called before the Sheriff's bar to give bail or go to the county Jail to keep George Francis Train's company. Yesterday C. F. Wetmore, coun sel lor plaintiff, tiled papers in the Court of Com mon Pleas, charging Bergh with FALSELY ARKKSTINd AND IMPRTSONIKO Denis Christie, driver of a Broadway and Twenty third street stage. The complaint charged that, on the 7th iustant, while the plaintiff was leisurely driving up Broadway, Bergh arrested him, turned him over to an officer, who took him belore Judge Cox; that he was locked up nineteen hours, and finally released on bail of $boo; that on being tried in the Special Sessions he was acquitted, but after spending $150, and for this he sues Bergh for |5,ooo, upon the filing 01 the papers Judge shea issued A BENCH WARRANT, which was placed in Jarvls' hands, the bail being fixed at $1,000. This morning Jarvls will appear In his Dundreary whiskers before Saint Bergh and politely request him to step down to the new Court Houso and put his autograph to a bail bond that he will not go where the woodbine twineth and leave toe poor horse too long to mourn the absence of his loved one. In default of performing this little ceremony Saint Bergh will go to Ludlow Street Jail, where he will have an opportunity of studying tne cruelty practised by Warden Tracy upon the Bpiders and bugs of Tracy's Hotel.

Preparation* for the Execution of the Italian Wife Murderer at Morriitown, N. J.? Remarkable Coolness and Uncon cern of the Prisoner. Mohristown, n. J., April 22, 1873. On the 1st of May ttie last. penalty of the luw Is to be meted out ut Huh place to Luigi Lnslgnani, the Italian wife murderer. The ease is one of peculiar Interest from the fact that thin will ue the first Italian ever executed in this county, and that the crime, like most Italian crimen, had its origin in jealousy. Little more than two years ago Lusig nani was a happy peasant boy in his own suuny land, but allured by the reports which came from relations and friends of the opulcnce that ids coun trymen were enioylng in the United States, Ue left his home and friends and came to this country. Wnen he landed tho visions of wealth winch he had indulged in were rudely dispelled, and after a few weeks spent in idleness ho was forced to Join the banditti of the street sweeping department in New York, and became a scavenger. He took up his abode in the chosen haunt of ltalla's sons, Bax ter street, and while here HE MKT 1118 FATE in the person of a swarthy, dark-halrei Italian girl named Johanna Moosi. Lulgi's heart was young and susceptible ; he loved Johanna, and in a short time, unhappily for Luigi, the couple were married by an Italian priest in llonoken, and they went to live together at 18 Haxter street. For a snort time the couple lived happily, but not long had elapsed before Johanna commenced to develop qualities which were not at all agreeable to her husband. She waB some what addicted to tho use of beer, and was rather fond of frequenting the Italian wine shops of the Sixth ward. From this she took to going into the society of strange men, and Luigi very naturally remonstrated against such breaches of matrimo nial fuith. Hut Johanna would not beremoustrated with and persisted in her unwise course. Frequent quarrels were the result, which sometimes ter minated in blows, Luigi generally coming out sec ond best. In order if possible to RECLAIM Ills WIFE Luigi determined to change his place of residence; bnt Johanna refused to leave Baxter street, and her husband had recourse to a ruse which was the cause of a final separation, lie took apartments in the upper part ol the city, and, unknown to Jo hanna, had her effects removed there. When the woman discovered this she was furious, and de manded her effects back. Luigi entreated her to come to him and live In peace, but she wonld not, and he refused to deliver tip her clothes. A lew days alter this occurrence Johanna suddenly disap peared, ana for some mouths all the efforts of Luigi to trace her proved utterly unavailing; but In the month of October he heard she was living at Dover, N. J., with a countryman of her own, in the capacity ol housekeeper. Luigi dearly loved the woman, with all her faults, and lie deter mined, ir possible, to regain her affections. In company with another Italian, I'hilip Massalini, he left on the early train one morning for Dover ami easily succeeded in finding the place where the woman was living with her paramour. lie tolls the story of what he asserts happened alterwards. The man, with whom the woman lived, a shoe maker by trade, kept a small shoe shop, in which he was seated at work when Luigi and his friend made their appearance. Inquiries were made by Luigi about his wife, and he was answered by THE WOMAN IN PERSON, who came from an Inner room. The meeting be tween the two was not by any means friendly, the woman Instantly commencing to upbraid her hus band, charging him with having been cruel to her and robbing her ol her elTccts. Luigi endeavored to soothe her, and, wishing to make the con versation more private, he suggested that they should adjourn to the sidewalk, the house not affording a private apartment. They did so, and after talking some minutes went back again into the house, where some hot words ensued. At this moment, Luigi asserts, the woman grasped a butcher-knife with which she was cutting meat, and stabbed him in the abdo men, while he was at the same time struck with a shoemaker's knife behind the ear. To seize the knife from Johannsrwus but the work of a mo ment, and enraged and excited with pain and Jealousy, his hot sorrnFRN blood was raised to an ungovernable degree, and a deadly wound was inflicted upon the unfortunate woman, which canned her lile blood to trickle upon the floor. Luiul then closed in a fierce encounter with the shoemaker, during which the latter was se verely stabbed. Lulgl went down to the station house and surrendered himself, while the startled i villagers gathered around the dead body ol the woman, w hich lay upon the door step. Lulgl was tried at the November term of the Court at Morristowu, and, though It was proven that to the crime of adultery Johanna had added bigamy, and married her paramour, who was shown to be a man of notoriously bad character in his own land, the jury brought In a verdict ol mur der in the first degree. The prisoner's devoted counsel, Messrs. Werts and Cnllds, who worked without recompense or reward, succeeded In hav ing a short, stay grauted before sentence was pro nounced, and a motion was made for a new trial on the ground of various irregularities. The mo tion was refused by Judge Dalryinple, and on the 1st day ol April the last sentence of the law was directed to be carried into effect upon tue 1st day of May. The prisoner manifested NO EMOTION WHEN HENTBNCE WAS PASSED upon him, merely exclaiming in his broken Eng lishes ho was led away, "Me poor man; me no fair trial." An effort was made after sentence was passed to have the sentence commuted, and appli cation was made to the Court of Pardons, but the application was refused, although the public senti ment of Morristown was almost unanimously in lavor of a commutation ol sentence. A reporter of the Herald on yesterday visited the prisoner in his cell In the County Jail. Lulgl Luslgnanl, who is a slight. delicate nun, only twenty three years old, has not changed in appearance since liis trial, and seemed to be in wonaeriully good spirits. In answer to a question of the re porter as to how he felt he shrugged his shoulders in an expressive way and said, "Me leel very good ; no good to be sorry." The reporter Inquired If he was not afraid to die t and he said in reply:? "No; die once, all over," at the same time pointing to the prison yard, where the preparations lor the execution have already commenced. On being asked was he sorry for what he had done he said, again shrugging his shoulders, "Sorry for my wife, no; sorry for myself, yes. I told truth about what happened; but me poor, no money; thought to get five years, ten years; but no, they hang me. Well, it is all right." The Italian went on talking lor some time In this strain, and he then gave the reporter some partic ulars of his life. It seems that he was at one time a soldier under Garibaldi, and his slight frame quivered with excitement as he spoke of the battles he had assisted at under his great leader. He will sometimes break out into one of the patriotic songs of Italy, and, as he has a rich musical voice, the prisoners In the outer cells gather around to listen. Lulgl is finely educated, and he reads a good deal In religious books in his own language. There is a Bible In the Italian language and In this he reads almost daily when not talking to Iriends. He Is visited by an Italian priest from Orange almost daily and by the sisters of Charily from the Convent of St. Elizabeth. Some Iriends supply him with the Bcco Italia , and In the perusal ot this he takes great interest. The citizens of Morristown are much Interested in the case, and lie was supplied with a number ol delicacies which he would not be otherwise able to procure. The preparations for the execution have already commenced, and the gallows will soon be erected on which already six persons have been hanged. It Is a remarkable coincidence that the last execution winch took place In Morristown was also that of a wile murderer and a foreigner, a Frenchman, named Peter Gucel. Governor Parker, Like Governor Dix, Is Inflexible. Yesterday Governor Parker, of New Jersey, received an application from George F. Wunts, one of Lusignani's counsel, praying for a respite of the death sentence passed on the culprit at the Morris County Court of Oyer and Terminer on the 20th of February last. In this last petition a stay of two weeks was so licited. Governor Parker refused to Interfere with the sentence of the Court for the following rea sons On the 20th of Febrnaiy last the culprit was found guilty, and sentenced to be hanged on the 1st ol May. On an application for a new trial the ver dict was sustained. The Court of Pardons, after a careful examination of the evidence and full consideration of the circumstances, unanimously refused to commute the sentence. Nearly six months have elsnsed since the commission of the crime for which he Is condemned. While I sympathize with the friends of the prisoner and regret his fate, still, as a public officer, 1 have a duty to perform which, in the absence of any good reasons for extending the time fixed by the Court Tor execution requires, that I deny tiie appli cation for reprieve. JOEL PARK.fc.it. A MASSACHUSETTS MUBDEBER. Sl'RINOFIKLD, April 22, 1873. The trial of Albert n. Smith for the murder of Charles U. Sackett at Westfietd on the 20th of No vember last, commenced before the Supreme Court in tills city to-day. A jury was empanelled without difficulty, and the testimony lor the prosecution is now being put m. The court room ? crowded. A MYSTERIOUS MURDER. Thr InquMt In tike C??? of Mary Pagan, Who Wm Beaten to Death? Important Tcallmony* Trip murder of Mary Pagan, the poor woman who was beaten to death some five weeks a?ro, Is still shrouded in mystery. Coroner Voting held the In quest at the Twentieth precinct police station, Thirty-seventh street, betweea Ninth and Tenth avenues, yesterday. The Inquest has been de layed because the principal witnesH, Mathew Morri son, who w as supposed to be the murderer, lay sick at Bellevue Hospital. Morrison la dead now, and his wife, at the inquest yesterday, seemed un willing to unravel the mystery. The facts were published in the IIkkald at the time the murder was discovered. Mary Kaftan was a very poor woman, a drunkard, too, and on the night of the 16th of March sought shelter in the house, or rather in the rooms, of Morrison, 516 West Thirty-eighth street, she was an old acquaintance of Mrs. Mor rison, and the latter allowed her to stay for the night. Ou the iollowing day Mary Pagan was found dead in the rooiu in which she had slept, she was terribly bruised, most, of her ribs being broken and the jagged ends of the ribs on the right side hav ing penetrated the right lung und liver, had lacera ted both organs in a terrible manner. The first witness examined yesterday was Mrs. Jane Morrison, who is a short, stout woman, with a rather shrewd lace. Sue testilled that she did not know what Mar.v Pagan died of: she did not know where she got the terrible beating; she had known M an Pagan live years; there had been no trouble that alternoon or evening; she did not know whether her boy, Hamilton (who Is sup posed to know everything about the case, but has all oi a sudden disappeared), slept In the place that night; she protested she knew absolutely nothing about the murder. She identified a smeetlung lrou, which was icund In tho room stained with blood, as her own, but said she did uot know who could have taken it out ol the closet. Mrs. Eliza Crosby, who lived with tho Morrison family, testltle 1 she was drank that particular evening, and that hIio remem bered seeing the boy, llamilton, in the house between sevei und eight o'clock in the evening. Mrs. Parley, who occupied the adjsinlng room, testified that Morrison and his wife used to quarrel frequently ; she had frequently seen both witli black eye*; when Mrs. Morrison got a beating she took it very quietly; she never made much Hiss about it. Tuo most important witness was Mrs. Uarrity, who lived iu the same house. She testilled that she heard a quarrel between them; she heard Morrisou swear, and also heard blows and a dull noise, as If somebody was falling down; she heard a woman moan as if in terrible pain; next day she saw the body of Mary Pagan uud believed that Morrison hail beaten her to death. The Jury retired and brought in the following verdict:? "We believe that Mary Pagan died Irom injuries received at the hands of Mathew Morri son, aud that Jane Morrison was an accessory thereto." Coroner Yonng sent Mrs. Morrison to the Tombs lo await the action of the Urand jury. In answer to the question wnat she had to say in regard to the charge against her Bhe coolly replied, "1 have uothing to say." THE NEW CHARTER. Office Seekers Still on the Lookout at the Slayor'i Office? The Aidcrmunic Combination Getting Filed? What Is Thought of the Proposed Supplemen tary Chapter Bill. "The cry Is still they come" at the Mayor's office. Ycstertlay the ofllce-seekerB came, not In single flies, but in battalions. The more notable of the callers were Thurlow Weed and Colonel Stebbins, both of whom had siiort interviews with His Honor. The main topic of yesterday's gossip around the Hail was THE RENOWNED SUPPLEMENTARY BILL, said to be contemplated being brought before the Legislature directly the charter is signed, and which proposes to return to the provisions of the charter of 1856, by which the ofllce of Comptroller was made elective instead of by appointment oi the Mayor as under the present and the new charter. Various opinions were expressed us to the chances of the ultimate success of such a measure, but the majority seemed to think that there was very little chance of any proposal in this direction becoming law. Those who lavor a combination in the Board of Aldermen as to THE MAYOR'S NOMINATIONS were slightly strengthened yesterday, and It was said, with some show of truthfulness, that the Aidermanic combination has been formed which will control the appointments. Mayor Havemeyer is believed to be too shrewd and too good a manager to be defeated in his purposes bv any combination or this kind. The Mayor will, when the proper time comes, take into his confidence certain prominent city officials and the more valuable men of the Board ol Aldermen, and in a private conference, or perhaps in several con ferences, will go over his list ol nominations, and in this council the final list will be draltcd and then sent t? the Board of Aldermen lor continua tion, and it is not anticipated that there will then be any difficulty in THE MATTER OP APPOINTMENTS. The mention of any names with particular ap pointments would certainly be the merest specu lation, and it may surely lie taken for granted that all names thus mentioned lor the next few days are only suggested by the wish thai is father to the thought. ? ? ?
