Arrest of an Alleged Notorious Coun terfeiter for Robbery. SEEING THE SIGHTS. i Servant Who Took a Great Many Places and Everything Portable She Found In Them. HHOF LIFTING. A Large Quantity of Stolen Property Found at the House of a Thief by Two Officers. Ell Brown, alias J. B. Davis, alias Wilson, was arrested yesterday l?y Detectives Parley and 81 mlngton, charged with robbing a Mr. T. M. Puller of a gold watch and Jl.ftoo in money. The complain ant in the case arrived In this city from Chicago en the l^th mm., and has boen here since trans acting business with several large mercantile bonnes. On Prlday last he met Brown on Broadway, and they spent the day to gether. Mr. Puller at that tune had the money and watch In his possession, but miBsed both In the course of the evening, and shortly after discovered Brown had also disappeared. Peeling certain the latter was the purlolner of the prop erty, Mr. Puller went to his hotel and kept silent about the matter, hoping when he met the man the things would be restored. In this expectation he was doomed to serious disappointment. Brown had made an appointment previous to the robbery to meet him In Houston street on Priday, but this engagement he failed to keep. Mr. Fuller then began a search for him, and Anally ran across him In a lager beer saloon in Houston street. Brown was seated at a table playing cards and drinking beer with several women whom ho was regaling royally on Mr. Puller's money. Seeing the latter gentleman enter, ke shouted:? "Hallo, old fellow, how are you? Come sit, down and make yourself comfortable." After such an invitation Mr. Puller felt he conld not refuse, and, drawing up to the table, he par took of the magnificent munificence of the lavish Brown. When the party had broken up Mr. Puller proposed a movement in the direction of the street, and. Brown acquiescing, they walked to the side walk. Here the loolish and confiding Fuller un burdened his heart of its leaden load. Ue said to the prince of pretenders:? "Now, look here, Brown. 1 want my watch and money back. This sort of thing won't do." Brown became indignant, fumed, foamed, after the manner of the beer he had been imbibing, fixed a glaring eve on Fuller, and. with violence of voice and language redolent of adjectives, denied the ac cusation. Overpowered by the sudden bursting of the floodgates of Brown's eloquence Mr. Puller be came less asserting and milder in manner. Think ing just for a moment that perhaps he might be mistaken he addressed Brown in a soothing tone, but this hud no other effect than to make Krown more emphatic In ids protestations oi innocence, in the midst of a second harangue from iirown nn the subject oi his spotless character and the friendship he bore for Mr. Puller, the latter gentlemun timidly drew from his pocket the black ribbon that used to serve as a guard for his tiuieuiecc, and, gently exposing it to the vision of Brown, Raid :? "There's the chain ? You cut the watch off it ! I felt .vou ! What's the use of denying itf" Brawn proposed a liquor. They went across the ?treet and liquored. Attracted by the refulgence oi a window lamp in a store on Broadway, they liquored again and continued the amusement until each mistook the other lor his most intimate friend. They hugged each other until Morpheus hugged them both and buried tliem in lorgetiulncss UU PAY DROVE DARKNESS from the earth. With an acluug head and yawn ing pockets Mr. Fuller sought his "ancient"' on Hat nrday. Long aud leisurely he looked. but no trace Of Brown was apparent. Manhood made itself manifest, and Mr. Fuller found that food had be come necessary for the support of himself aud his troubles. Frugality should now tuke the place of liberalitv, aud Mr. Fuller found himself obliged by the exigencies of the case to satisfy the croakings ol the breakfast bell nt. th? very lowest figure. He had been in the habit of leusting on the lat of the land, but lie wub uow re duced to filling up upon a lat probably produced Irom loulness. After despatching his meagre meal Mr. Fuller called upon Captain Ir ving at the Police Headquarters and detailed the melancholy circumstances of his case. That official placed him in the hands of Detective Farley, aud directed him to rollow ont the instructions ol the Officer! to the letter. A consultation was then held, and Detective Parley desired Mr. Fuller to keep on pretending friend ship for Brown, and to enter into any schemes he would propose until they should have time to get 1 together evidence enough to convict him. Mr. Fuller, somewhat buoy ed up by the break last, but ?till more strengthened by the assurances of ASSISTANCE FROM T1IK POLICE, went on his way in quest of Brown. They met on Brwadwav, and Brown, thinking, from tlie flood of good nature the countenance of Fuller was shed ding, that the storm had blown over, proposed a liquor. He was met by a ready assent, and they adjourned. Puller coutiding to his follower that Ills pockets were as light as ins spirits, aud iu the teeming good fellowship of the moment Brown lent him five dollars. Tins broke the ice, aud a second liquor was called lor by Brown. After the disappearance of the second draught he softened and became commuuicative. He luuted to Ids friend that as the latter was in that disagreeable condition men of the world called "hara up," a sufficient might be made, Just a step out ol the regular way, to help him out of the hole. Fuller queried as to the particular mode of accomplishment, and Brown instantly answered, counterfeit money. "I have been doing a little in that way mvself since 1 have been iu town," said he, "and I find it i works very well."' He then conducted Mr. Puller across Bleecker ?treet as far aa Wooster. They turned up Wooster, ! and when Brown had gone about twenty yards lie stooped down, put his hand under the curb aud drew out a $20. fio and a $5 bill. These he pre sented to Mr. Fuller, saving:? "Uo ahead now, there's the stuff for you." fhee bills Mr. Poller gnve to Detective Parley, who desired him to continue with Brown until the arrest was made, Fuller acted on this advice, and the pair visited the principal points of the city together. Several times during these trips of e insure Mr. Fuller requested Brown to give him ck the watch aud part of the monev and he would be satisfied, but Brown always adhered to his fflrst tale, and PROCLAIMED HIS INNOCENCE. On Tuesday night, Brown liecomlng snspiclous, lie called on Fuller. They walked up to TeuiU Street and fourth avenue, liquoring as they went, and when they got to the corner made by these two thoroughiares Brown pulled out a long knlie and said to his companion, "You have been betraying me, and 1 now Intend to croak you." Fuller expected this, and used all the powers of pursuaslon he possessed to drive the suspicion of foul plav from Brown's mind. He succeeded, and Ihev got so thick again that Brown determined he would not be separated from his friend again. They spent the night at Mr. Puller's rooms, and, on parting yesterday morning, made an arrangement 'to meet during trie after noon. Detective Farley having matured his plans Interrupted this Interview by pouncing upon Brown at the Fifth Avenue Hotel hoars before he expected to meet his lrlend. Knowing Brown to have been nn extensive operator In counterfeit money, before moving in the matter he informed Mr. Nettle, Chief of the Secret Service Police, of the case, and that offlcr detailed Detective Butts to work in the matter with Detectives Parlev aud Hlmlngton. Detective Butts wormed himself Into the confidence oi Brown, and the latter, to ?how his good leellng lor the detective, sold him a gold watch lor fib which was worth flfto. and which Brown admitted was stolen. This watch tarns out to be Mr. Fuller's, and win be AN IMPORTANT POINT ? in the evidence against him. Mr. Fuller thinks Brown followed him on here from Chicago for the purpose of robbing him. There were but two people who knew that lie had the money? one w?s a French woman named Mary, a former accomplice of Brown's and Brown himself. Mr. Poller, in a moment of lorgetfulness, showed the money to Mary; she in ail probability telegraphed Brown of the lact and he determined to get possession of It. Through this same Mary's intercession, Mr. Fuller got Brown out of prison in Chicago not long Since, spending $500 fsr the purpose, and the iriendship 1b returned in New York. Mr. Fuller ?ays, with robbery. Brown is a most notorious man. lie lias been in prisons ail over the couuiry lor all kinds o' oifences, and is well known to the Ciice. He will be sent be lore Judge Hogan, at the . mbs, this moriung. , A CUKIOCS CASE. Detective Kelrns ana Thomas Kelse arreBtert Annie Itelliy, with halt a dozen aliases, yesterday i morning. She Is charged with having stolen property rained at about two bun 4re d dollars from several houses in the dtr. When Annie was locked up at Police Headquarters a number of persons who bad complained to Captain Irving of having been robbed were notified, and they called at the Central Office tu see tue urlawucx. fievc o i tiicm lUeuti*. Bed her as a young woman who called at their houses Id answer to advertisements lor servants, and, having secured the situation in each case and gained the confidence oi tne household, robbed them luid disappeared. Annies penitence for the acts she committed and ner eain est desire to return all the stolen property, com pletely Ton the sympathies of all the lacaes who went into her cell, and it is probable that none of them will appear as complainants against her. Sh? cave the detectives and owners ttie iuiuu test details about the disposition of the property and since her arrest has evinced the greatest anxiety that all should get back w hat she dishonestly deprived tliem or. Her re pentance w.iH so evidently sincere that several ladies went while they talked witU her, and the poor creature herself has scarcely ceased to shed tears since she has been locked up. She is a woman of exceedingly attractive appearance, and has a most pleasing address. She Is young, educated and has been studying medicine lor the past two years. She fell into her present position, she says, through absolute necessity and ill health. 8hi> is now in a very delicate state of constitution, and if kept long in prison will certainly break down. Through her tact and cleverness she has been able to elude the detectives (or along time, but she yesterday fell Into the trap had they laid for her. She was going up Third avenue, when she became aware or the presence of a man following. Hearing him quicken his pace she increased her speed, until at last. be coming certain he was alter her, she dashed into a private house and endeavored to slam the door in his face, but he was too quick lor her. Finding she was caught, she gave way quietly, and walked to the Headquarters with Detective Kelso as calmly as was possible for one In her condition. The different acts ol Miss Rellljr, though small, were exceedingly annoying to the people wno were robbed, and the detectives deserve the highest credit lor huntinir her down and stopping her tricks. At the present time sho is a much more fit ting subject for the philanthropist than the police justice, and It Is to be hoped some oi the magnificent ladles who have so much sympathy and so little to do will give her some attention. There is a great deal of good in the woman, with apparently but little evil, and there is not the slightest doubt she would prove a most profitable subject. If any complainant appears against her she will be sent by Captain Irving before Judge Uogan, at the Tombs, this morning. STEALINCI FROM STOKES. A woman calling herself Emma P. Thompson was arrested yesterday aiternoon by Detectives Elder and Macdougal. She is charged with stealing a valuable cloak from the store of Wilson & Crept*, on Broadway. After locking her up at Police iiead J (turners the detectives went to her house, and ound a large quantity of stolen property, which they captured and conveyed to Captain Irvlng's office. Miss Thompson has given the mercnants 011 Broadway considerable trouble, and the very finest skill of the best detectives was necessary to trap her. At one time Miss Thompson made an exten sive raid on Lord & Taylor's store, on the corner of Twentieth street and Broadway, but owing to the untiring vigilance of Mr. John K. Warrln, the Superintendent, Emma lulled in her enterprise. Miss Thompson is an old hand, and Cap tain Irving was Inexpressibly delighted yes terday to see her within the bounds of the office. Detectives Elder and Macdougal aro looking lor the owners of the property recovered, and, as soon as they have obtained the necessary evidence, Emma will be sent belore Justice Uogan, at the Tombs Police Court. MR. BERQH'S SOCIETY. The New Building on Fourth Avenue? A Substantial Evidence of Growing Strength. The prosperity of the New York branch of the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals msst >?e very gratilytng to its founder as well as to tho^e who have labored so industriously for its establishment, one by oue all the obstacles which were oppo??* ? it* efficiency have been swept away, and th ;u-h courts of law and the adverse opinion* of a great public element, the society, with Mr. it? rgh at its head, has at last come forth on a basis which defies opposition. The influence which this association has had upon society can be seen in many ways, and while there are many respectable gentlemen who believe tnai its founder is often ridiculously severe in his in terpretation of the law none doubt his good in tentions. THE PATS OP BHDTALITY ARE WANING. In years not long past it was a common occur rence to see cart loads of calves driven tnrough the streets with their heads resting upon the wheels. The knocking out of an animal's eye, the tearing out of a horse's tongue, the salting of the car tracks? by which the hoofs were frozen so that they dropped off? and public fights between dogs or cats were everyday scenes or iucidents. To-day, even the most brutal cartman knows that he dare not maltreat the animal who furnishes nlm with the means of earning his bread and butter. The car and omnibus drivers tremble at the sight of a lame or injured horse. They know that to drive it over their route subjects tliem to the liability of arrest and the company to a une. W.ieu a horse lalis on Broadway to-day and injures himself so as to be unable to rise, one 01 Mr. Bergh's officers scniis lor the society's ambulance and has the suf fering animal conducted to the office 01 some veterinary surgeon where the best medical skill is to be had. Scenes of brutality on Broadway are now of rare occurrence. THE NKW Bl'lI.DINCJ OF THH SOCIETY. The Society some time since purchased tile large residence at the corner of Fourth avenue aud Twenty-second street, and alter the building shall have bem completely overhauled it win tie occu pied as the headquarters 01 the Association. An iron irout, with a large bay window , Will take the place 01 the old brick and stone, and a large bronze medal, 1mm ring the name of the Society, will be displayed at the angle. The old and well known quarters at the corner ol Broadway and Fourth street will i?e given up in May aud the offices will be removed to the new structure. The interior of the building has been greatly changed. The main floor, which was reached by a short fllirht 01 steps, has been lowered to the street level. The lront portion ol the ground noor will be devoted to the general office, irom wliich the agents 01 the society will get their orders aud be despatched lor special duty, lu the rear of this office, and cotn municating with Twcnty-secoud street by a large door, two ainbulauces for disabled horse's will ne stored. The horses ior drawing the ambuiancea will be stabled in the rear, so as to be readily ac cessible. Accommodation will also be had in the stable lor such horses as have been turned out by cruel masters TO DIE IN THE STREKTP. The second floor will be devoted to the President and Directors or the society. Mr. Bergn's rooiun will occupy the entire irout, with a private office communicating. The council chamber, 111 the rear, will be comfortably furuisned with easy chairs aud a large table. The third floor will be set aside for the superintendent ol the society, who will either live in the building or near at baud, so that he may always be convenient to his post. A portion of this floor will be devoted to a museum, in which shall be deposited all the arti cles captured by the agents of the society. The collection is already very large, and consists of every ituiginable implement by which the animal creation can be tortured or maltreated. The building, as a whole, will be quite handsome, both externally and internally, and will reflect credit ?pon the society. BEBQH BAILED. Shortly after eleven o'clock yesterday morning Mr. Henry Bergh walked Into the Sheriff's Office, accompanied by Mr. Henry Clews and Mr. P. W. Howe, these gentlemen having decided to become hisboudstnen. The bond signed the gentlemen parted and Mr. Bergh, happy of his escape, walked up Broadway as unconcernedly as If nothing hud happened. Christie, the stage driver at whose instance the warrant was issued, is confident of his ultimate success in getting a verdict lor damages against Mr. Bergh. SHOCKING CKOEL'TY 10 ANIMALS. Sixteen Valuable Horsci Starred to Death. Thomas Farrell, a Brooklyn street contractor, took sick a few months ago and went to reside with a relative. At the time of tils sickucss he had ill bis stable, Throop avenue and Van Buren street, Brooklyn, sixteen valuable working hor"es. Beiug enable to visit the stable, Farrell, it Is alleged, leit his herses to their fate. His father and brother, it Is said, frequently Implored him to let them have the use of the horses, oilerlng him liberal remuneration for the use oi them. He sternly reiused their offers. Yesterday aiternoon the offal contractor removed the last carcass of the sixteen horses irom the stable. The entire sixteen had perished. On examining the stable it was found that the famishing animals had eaten up their bedding and the manure. Marks of their teetu were also visible in all the woodwork, and many a ptne board in ttie stable was partially eaten away. YOUTHFUL BPRQLAB8. nenry Frey.

The second race was between John Murphy's bay mare Kate and Isaac Tauling's hav mare Belle of orange, mile heats, best three in five, in harness. BeUe of Orange won the first heat, Kate the other three. The track was very heavy from the rains of Monday and Tuesday, but the racing was very good tnroughout, although not particularly fast. In the first trot Saratoga had the call in the betting before tbe start; but after the first heat Betsey King was the favorite at ten to three. On the second event there was very little betting, Kate having the call In wliat was done at slight odds. The following are the 8UHMARIB8. Fleetwood Pakk, April 22.? Trotting?

The New Jersey Sportsmen's Clnb held its monthly reunion yesteiday afternoon at Dexter's (late Hiram Woodruffs), near the old Union Course, Long Island. The members were compelled to se lect this ground, which is reeognlzed as the heart quarters of the Long Island Shooting Club, owing to a bill which lately passed tlie New Jersey Legis lature, prohibiting the shooting of pigeons as a pastime within the limits of that State. Until this law can be tested, whloh will be done at the first practicable opportunity, the Club will hold their reunions as above mentioned. There was a pleas ant attendance of spectators and the weather all that could be desired. The first event of the day was the shooting off a second tie between Mr. C. C. Tounsend and Mr. Wil liam Dnnlap for a double-barrelled gun, made by Scott, of London. This was originally put up on the Club's last monthly field day, March 12, which had twenty entries, the conditions* being thrco birds each, twenty-one yards rise, one and a half ounces of shot ana elghtv yards boundary. Messrs. Dnnlap and Tounsend, ?n the occasion named, shot oir their first tie, each killiug four oui of five birds, and, darkness then coming on, they agreed to decide it at the next meetinar, shooting the tie off at filteen birds each. Much interest was felt iu the result of this contest, in which, at last, Mr. Toun send proved the victor, killing twelve out of thir teen birds, thus destroying all chances for his opponent, as he had killed but eight out ol twelve birds. The second event was the challenge cup handi cap ol live birds each, using five traps, with 1* ounces ot shot, so yards boundary and $5 en trance. For this there were ten competitors, tlie cup finally being handed over for safe keeping to a Mr. Daniel Kelly for the next thirty days. If the cup can be held lor six consecutive months by a member against all comers it becomes his abso lute property. The third and last event of importance was a sweep of three birds each and $2 entrance. Fif teen names were on the list lor this, ami Messrs. West, teteele, and Endicott Killing ail their birds, thev concluded to bar shooting off the tie, and di vided the "pot-" The iollowing is a summary of the <lay's shooting:?

THE COMPTROLLER A?!> THE DOCK COffl mission. t What KfFrct the Victory Won by the IH-partiuent of B?ck? in (lie Courts Will Have on the Work of Improving the Wharfage of the Port? They Will Probably Not Act ill-fore the Ezpira* tiun of Their Term. The difficulties between the Comptroller and the Department 01 Docks, in which the former gentle man has succeeded admirably in delaying the work on the new piers aud bulkheads, the speedy completion ?f which is ol such great consequence to the commercial iuterests ol the city, will be much simplified by the decision rendered on Tues day by Judge ingraham ou the appeal ol the Judg ment previously given by Judge Leonard to the Supreme Court. A mandamus which had been granted against Green, ordered him to hand over the lands set apart for the use of the Department of Docks to the Board ol Commissioners ou their requisition. The Comptroller has since his accession to otllce re fused to supply the Department with money to p:iy its own bills, but insists on paying them himself, and at no other place but at his office. TUB DECISION OP JUDGE LEONARD was that the Department, in order to obtain their money, must specify upon the requisition the pur poses for which it was to be used. Accordingly a new torni of requisition was sent to the Comptrol ler, asking lilin if he would pay it, as it then con formed with the decision vl the Ourt. He retused to do so, aud the matter wa- then carried to Judge Ingruham's Court, where the judgment previously made was confirmed. A great deal ?( sp?cuIation Is going the ronnds as to what will be the course ot the board of Com missioners alter the gaming ot this substantial victory over the Comptroller. Merchants are anx lous to know whether or not the work of IMfHOVINd TIIK WHARF A(J* of this port will be reMimeu immediately aud pressed lorward. The first step to be taken belore proceeding to this action would of course be to secure the necessary luntls, and it is not certain yet whether the Comptroller will even now con sent to relinquish tils position. The decision of the Court ?toes not amount to a peremptory order. TIIK REMAINING LIKE Ol TIIK OLD BOARD of Commissioners Is short. It expires on the 1st of May. Inquiries were made yesterday of Commls ' sloners Agnew and Kaue rcgurulng future action, and they both seemed doubtiui whether any steps could be taken at all before leaving the matter in the hands 01 the uew Hoard, as, if aay new litiga tion were begun to secure the money, it could not be got through with at all events betore the expira tion of the remaining week ol their term. So the matter rests until the final meeting of the old Board, which takes place on next Thursday. APPOINTMENT BY THE MA70B. Mayor Haveuieyer yesterday appointed George S.

At a meeting of the Hoard of Health, held yester day afternoon, mime minor matters of detail wero attended to and the Hoard adjourned to Wednes day next. The following report on the condition of the cellars In the Hlxth and Seventh wards wns handed ln by Dr. Junes, the City .sanitary In. spector Bureau or Hakitast iHsrrmojr, ) Nun- York, April XI, 1873. ) To Colonel E?r*o*ii Clark, Secretary:? Hiii -I have the honor to report that the Inspection of colhirs south ot llauston street is completed, reports hav ing recently been received from the hlxth and Keveuth wards. lit liic former were found eighty-three occupied ccllar* of which sixty-aix are condemned by the Inspectors a* untlt lor human ilwellinKs. Of this latter nuiufier thirty two are located directly upon the site of the olil ' ollect Pond, and subject, more or less, to the dampness and noxious exhalations that pervade thin "area ot perma nent soli saturation." . . . In the He re nth ward were found ninety -three occupied cellars, of which it In recommended that sixty-five be va cated, as unlit lor human dwellings. The total number of inhabited cellars found la this por tion of the city, south of Houston street, was 548. The number reported as unfit for human dwellings, 450. It was not thought advisable that these people should he turned out ot their homes during the severe weather or Winter, and therefore most of the orders to vacate were ?*l? so as to become operate on April 1, since which m eellar occupants have been removing to dowl ' ??.* *bove Brounil as rapidly as they can Uud places. The Minber of cellar dwellings actually vacated and cloaed since the 1st Inst by the order of the Hoard is l6?, the number daily increasing. A large number of tenants report that they had obtained other places, of which tlicy cannot get possession until May 1, and consequently orders relating to such have been withheld Irom suit. The prospect now Is that moat of these condemned cel lars will be permanently vacated and closed as human dwellings within a month by the efforts of the inspect ors, though In some cases it will probably be necessary to resort to coercive measures.
