Now, I would lite to Inquire if thin question or subject of universal salvation ts really either a vital auesUon in religion or it' it i& eve* ono of any considerable practical moment Supposing it were well settled to ibe sativaet on ot all men. cither that ail would be saved or that there U an endless hell tbr the wicked, would this universal beliei change the real oondition of things in the other world ? Would it change the actual destiny of a single human being who enter* that world r If it would dot, then in what sense can this subject be regarded as a vital or even a practical one In religion, and why should men trouble themselves about the Wcws of their neighbors upon this non-essential question and separate from each other on account of diiTcrcnces of opinion thereon f I would suggest to :'J. E." that It is a practical ' question of the utmost importance whether one believes that good will Anally triumph over all evil, or that evil will so far triumph as to result In "an endless hell for the wickednot that such belief here would effect the condition hereafter, but because it would have a decided Influence in forming the character and In promoting the happiness of the present life, which our Creator appears to have deemed of sufllcient importance to tndnce Him to prevtde us with all the requisite neans for rendering ourselves happy or miserable, is we are disposed or not disposed to adapt ourlelves to the laws lie has given us for the regula tlon of our conduct. Does "J. E." wish to be unlerstood as believing that the llle beyond the grave a tbe onl.v life of any practical importance? If he hv a fellow being struggling Id the water woold fee refuse his aid on the ground that u would make ao difference with his future state whether he was drowned now or should die at some future time ? If no saw another about to be devoured by the flames in a burning building would he say to him?"Never mind. It is of no vital Importance whether you are rescued from this Are or not, for it will not make any difference wUh your eondltiou in the fixture state T" The truth Is, theologians have been so Intent on trying to save sinners from an endless hell in a future state?a state so entirely beyond their Jurisdiction as to render their efforts useless?that they have created a sort of impression that happiness or misery in this stale of being is of but very little consequence, and "J. E." seems to have fallen into that mtatalto It lt?in<v mnoadoil that * mn ?lo nnth. tag here to effect God's dealing* wltti the Immortal part ol the soul of any man In the spirit world, It remains for ua to inquire what effect oar belief wtU have on our conduct In this lifer Those who really believe that God's love is ho powerful and extensive that It will Anally overcome every opposing influence will naturally apply a principle In which thev have so much confidence to the transactions of their every day Hie. Kecognizlng God an the loving Father of all, they perceive at once that It follow* that, all men are brethren and should be treated and watched over and cared for just as a family of loving children would treat each other when they came to realize that the happiness or the whole family depended on the well being of each individual member; and to be consistent they must, therefore, proceed to put this loving principle into Immediate practice or abandon it. On the other Laud, those who believe that this love principle will never be completely triumphant, but that God not only bates his enemies now, but will continue to hate and torment them throughout the endless ages of eternity, will as naturally imbibe much of Mis spirit of hatred from their Ideal of the God tney worship. This will account lor the cruelty practiced in religious wars and persecutions?a cruelty rendered still more intolerable when the persecutor Is under the fanatical delusion that tortures here may save nls victim, or others under his Influence, from endless tortures hereafter. rto much for the influence of belief on character. Now, let us Inquire into Its Influence in promoting happiness or misery In the present life. Imagine the inconsolable grief of a fond mother whose reprobate son has been suddenly cut off In the verv act of committing some heinous crime, under such circumstance* as must consign him to an endless hell, 11 such a place exists. Is It of no "vital Importance" to that mother whether she believed tuere is Ht>11 in the bosom of the great and (rood Father in beaven for that wayward son? Fortanately. those who beltere in an endless hell seldom believe in it for their own children or near and dear relatives; yet there nave been Instance* where the belief was so Intense and earneat that Insanity and suicide have been the result. Imagine, on the other hand, the calm serenity ? . on?. 0 beholds in Ood a kind and loving Father of ail his creaturea, whose laws re made for their benefit and perfectly adapted to their condition, the penalties of which are as sore -us the alii and as lasting as its cvBilllttDCfi lit ttEW YC Uw?n administered u tore and tor the rood of < the sinner; who beholds also In the Gospel of Jesus < Christ that divine spirit or love and truth, emauatlug from the Father and descending through Christ the Son into the hearts of sinful humanity, where tt is destined to work, like leaven in the meal, until the last lost sheep shall be reclaimed and broaght ; back, where there shall Anally be l>ut one (old and > one Shepherd, and then assert If you can that such ; a bellei Is of no vital Importance. Those who carefully read Christ's teachings will Srcelve that he dwells with great emphasis on the iportance of belief In Him and in the power of His Gospel. If He says nothing about "an endless ] hell," it Is simply because that notion Is an Invention of a later period and had probably never been heard of when He was upon earth. O. H. 1 < The Question of laflilllblllty, io tbi KorroB or tub uebald:? I have been induced from reading: the Sunday , Hbbald, the true advocate of freedom and rollClous liberty, to state a few grievances. I am an old man; but when young I was taught to believe that JeBus was alone the Infallible, and that If aa anfel from heaven taught a different dogma to | reject it. The College of Cardinals promulgate that Pius and not Peter Is Infallible. Our Lord Jesus proved Peter to be fallible, aud that was sufficient for the Illustrious successors of Peter; for they were all distinguished among nations and men by being the chief servant or snephord In the sucoession to their Divine Master, for the servant that Is greuter than the Muster is unworthy the Master. The dogma of the Immaculate Conception, to say the least, la erroneous, our Lord Jesus, through His maternal parent, rocelved the statu of original sin, which, lr He did not, He could not have suffered lor onr sins; for, aa the needle points to tho magnet and Is held captive, our blessed Lord lathe magnet that has drawn all sinners to ' Him. J. P. 0. I The Unitarian Relief. Ta i?ttn PnmiAn no mull IIuu 1 I It Having a desire to know what Unitarians believe ' In relation to Christ, I suggest the putting of the ' question to any clergyman or intelligent layman ol' ' that faith, believing that you, Mr. Editor, will publish this and any possible reply, as thereby many ' thousands may be enlightened on the subject, concernlag which there is much ignorance and diversity of opinion. They Beem to differ essentially In their belief. The cross is on many ol their churches, and their thoroughly educated ministers admit tliat Christ did appear, that lie was divine or partially divine; rather some of the sect b?lleve that He was divine, another part that He was partially divine, still anothor part that He was not in the least divine. I think they rather pride themselves on the lack of a creed. Perhaps it 1b well there is a society that admits the believer and the unbeliever?provided the unbeliever is made a believer and not the converse. If the minister and majority of a congregation were believers and tbe positive party, perhaps it would result well to have a large sprinkling of unbelievers or nothingarians. But, how would the oause of the Master naturally go if His ambassadors generally took the part takeu by a pastor presiding over a lyccum held in the chapel of the Church of the MesslaB lost winterr Remember, it was in a church called after the Mesuias. Subject appointed, Kevelation; subject discussed, Inspiration. The organist, a man oi about tllty years, in imparting lua ideas, , stated that he did not believe a word oi the record that the Holy Obost descended In the farm of a dove upon tbe head of Jesus. This man was old enough and apparently intelligent enough to be able to understand that the record comes down regularly, well connected and corroborated. God saw fit to establish the divinity of His Son by this supernatural manifestation; but this Solon could not understand that. I looked for a reproval or explanation to the benighted sceptic from the pastor presiding, but lie failed to respond?l think Irom laxity rather than his approval of such sentiments. But when the watenmen on the walls aro so inert what will become of the besieged city r Webster defines Unitarian, one who denies the Trinity?and the word implies as much. Yet Unitarians do recognize Cnrlst and the Holy Spirit, as well as the Father; display the emblem of Christ, the cross, observe the sacrament of ibe Lord's Supper; still there are In this communion members in "good standing" und ministers who do not recognize the vicarious atonement. They claim to J accept Christ and at the same time deny Him His attributes, appearing arrald of ascribing to Him too much. Are Unitarians Christians, semi-Christians or non-Christians r We would all like to know, and 1 especially, being myself possibly a ' UNITARIAN. A Place for Every Man and Every Man In His Place. To the Editob op tiii Hkhalo:? We often hear of self-made men. In truth there is no such thing. Each helpless Infant that comes walling Into life is pre-stamped by Nature, not only with Us own degree, but kind of worth, with Its one talent or its ten, and whether one or ten the whole have some special bent or predisposition. See how full the earth is of mines. He who, by thought and toil, brings ono of these to successful nnpmtmn hut nerulnlf develoned It. bur ran never claim to have made It. That was Nature's gilt Among these .nines are diamond, emerald, gold, silver, iron, lead, copper and coal. So in infant man there are human talents, corresponding veins of ore, which, developed, reveal the natural preacher, statesman, editor, doctor, lawyer, banker, merchant, soldier, butcher, blacksmith. The diamond will not answer when copper is needed, iron will not suffice when gold Is required, nor d? we find rubles and pearls In coal deposits. Yet, strangely contrary to these simple teachings of Nature, men eonflfle their State affairs to military men, faurih-rate lawyers and more bargainers and business men, and expect of these those grand results which proceed only from statesmen. Let the people leave the drum in the camp, the parson in the pulpit, the pettifogger in his country town court room, and tne bargaining business man with his ingenious manipulations and manifold tricks ot trade in his shop, his bank, his telegraph, railroad and steamship offices, and Hend statesmen to Washington. Then, and only then, will we have national prosperity, peace, the substance not the shadow, and ccase to hear of C&>sarism and corruption. It Is a mistake to make the Presidential chair the reward ol military heroism. Reward the hero null icuunu, iioaf u^uu uiuu ?vcmvu 11 juu tviii, and build him a colossal monument to commemorate his fame, a monument which, In Its solidity, shall endnre to the end of time, but do not destroy both the fame of the hero a' 1 tho glory or the Republic by fruitlessly endeavoring to manufacture a statesman out of a man by birth and training a soldier. "Potta nascttur rum jW," and what the Uitin Horace has said of poets is pre-eminently trne of statesmen. While you think you are cultivating the martial ear of nature's soldier to enjoyment of the sweet low notes of the clarion, be is all the while, uncon sclously to you and perhaps to himself, training your simple soul to revel in the grander strains of the bugle, the fife and the drum. It has been so In all ages and countries of the world, and human nature to-day is not a whit different from human nature a thousand years ago. General Washington, it Is true, was an exception to this ambitious rule, but the man deserves to be laughed to scorn who would say that that military man lives who, outside of his qualities of generalship, approximates in tbe slightest particular to tbe character of Washington. Prom Ctcsarlsm let us turn to corruption. Trade has its tricks. If the tricky devices and corrupt designs of trade have become so indissoluble Interwoven Into the meshes or the Htate labrlc as to be inseparable from the real goods, we all know it 1b not tbe fault of the good old loom our lathers bequeathed us. It made pure cloth once, and 11 the people will set honest and efficient spinners and weavers to work it will make It ajialn. If, as a nation, we have become wild after the accumulation of wealth and strangely corrupt, It is anything but fair to throw tbe blame npon our corrupt Congressmen and our Inefficient public officials. The fault Is with tbe people, who send military men, politiclana and business men to umiurnii'v seats oronerlv occunicd bv statesmen. r- - - - " " " CRITIC. Man a Fallen Being. To thk KDiTon or the Hkrai.d:? I listened to a discourse at Grace church, In this city, la*r Sunday morning, In which the preacher, In attempting to prove mat man la a fallen being, to my mind proved a directly opposite doctrine. He commenced by saying, "Man Is a fallen being." lie compared him to the wreck of a noble ship, once perfect In all her strength and grandeur, but now dismantled and forsaken on a lee shore?a majestic wreck onlv of her former greatness. He then took a gn at man with a giant mind berelt of reason, and compared him to the wre< k of the ship. The comparison hold* good so far as it applies to the ship be ore the wreck and the man belore he became Insane, but further than this tbero is no analogy, and therefore no proof that the man was "fallen" only lifter he becainr insane. I have stated in*: esse m.rijr, us uii whu uuaru me discourse win testily, and It there arc no better proofs that "man la a iaileu being" than are lound In this discourse 1 fear It may not noon he generally believed. It man was ever better or ever worse than at present 1 would like to know when. VIJiDEX. The Roman Catholic Chnrrh In India. The Bombay catholic Examiner of June a states that during the year 1872 there were forty-five conversions of i'rotestants to Catholicity id the Vicariate Apostolic or Colmbatore, India. In many Instances tbe converts were persons of high positions. A remarkable coincidence is related regarding one of thosa conversions:?on May 1, 1*72, a Protestant lady was received Into the Church at Colmbatore, and oa the same day her brother was rewired into tbe Cburcb ?i Madras.

A section or this dangerous ilnority (it is feared not nearly the whole), to the umber ol 483 clergymen, stands out self-convicted y having signed the late, and now notorious, neitlou to the Upper House of Convocation. Hair of fceso clergymen may be dealt with sumparlly. i is Indeed thought by many that to revoke the censo of a curate for the fault of bis incumbent rould be unjust. It may be so. But when the urate himself commits a treasonable act it is no round for not dealing with him that the incuinent Is for the moment out or reach. If it tiould be deemed unreasonable to wlthraw the license of a curate merely on the round of having signed even such a document a this petition, nothing would be easier than to lake official inquiry through the archdeacons as > the practices carried on in all the churches with hlch the petitioners are connected (Indeed, such step Beems imperatively called lor), and in au asch where curates and other non-benetlced petioners are participators in illegal acts, to withraw their acenses and inhibit them from offlating In any diocese till they have given satlsfac>ry proof of having renounced all Komanlzing mdenclcs. In like manner, all who are incumsnts should be inhibited from officiating oat of the locese in which their incumbencies are situate, a permit clergymen to remain in office as acredited ministers of the Church while notoriously ogaged In a conspiracy ror its overthrow is to the oundl simply inexplicable." Private Conference. A meeting ?f over one hundred clergymen and lymen or the Church or England, Wesleyan Methoist and English Presbyterian denominations was Bid on Thursday in the National Club, Whitehall aniens, London, to consider wnat common action light be taken to prevent the spread of ritualism i the Church of England and preserve tho Protesint faith. ? ? The Earl of SHAFTE8BtrBT was called on to prelie. The noble JJarl. after stating that the confront was a private one, called upon tbe Rev. . V. pilgn, * Church of England clergyman, and oe or tho honorary secretaries, to state toe object t the meeting. Mr. Buoh, in his address, drew a most alarming icture ot the spread 01 ritualism In the Church, ad explained that no time was to be lost In en avorlnfc to prevent It from being deprotestant;ed. He referred to wnat had been said by the uv. Mr. Marsden at tbe late Kxctcr Hall meeting gainst the confessional, to the etrect that it must e uiado a hustings question, and that their aim mint to be to return fifty or one hundred truo rotestant members to Parliament. There was lucb force in that suggestion, and its very proosal showed tbe extent of the evil. The Kev. Dr. Donald Kbaskr, the other honorry secretary, Bpoke as a Presbyterian, and said e was anxious to sink denominationalum In the resent crisis and to do all in his power to aid in revenilng the wealth and influence oi tue Church r England from being handed over to the Church r Rome. a letter was read from the Rev. Dr. Stoughton, ie well-known Congregational minister, to tbe erect that another engagement prevented his srrylng out his intention to be present, Dut that e sympathized with the object ot the movement, [e, however, said that beiore Church of England lembers could expect aid from nonconformists lev must first show themselves really in earnest, na set about prompt and judicious remedies. Tbe Rev. Mr. Hkkink (Church ot England) did ot see that a movement inaugurated and carried n by" Church of England men coaia he successful, le thought it must be begun and led by nonconirmista. Mr. Samtjil Mori.ky, M. P., was asked by Lord haltesburv to address a tew words to the meetlg, but the honorable gentleman said he could not ike part in the proceedings till he heard what was ) be done. He was present out ot sympathy with le object of the comerence. The Rev. W. AitTUUR (Wesleyan Methodist) said !>e Wesleyans did not trouble themselves much 'ith tbe questions or establishment and disestabshment, nut If the Protestant laith was to be pererted in the way they saw, if the cause of Christ ras to be betrayed, as was now the case, and if }inethlng effectual was not done by the members r tbe Church of England, ho was convinced that ie Wesleyans would go in passionately tor dlsesiblishment. Mr. Arthur also said that he was a apportur or Mr. Gladstone, hut that in questions ffecting the Protestantism of the country he dls us'.ed him and his Cabinet. (A remark which llclted the applause of the meeting.) Tbe Rav. Mr. Rlssbli. (Congregational minister) lid the conspicuous absence ol the leading Conregational ministers spoke volumes as to their telings on the question of supporting the movelent, and he did not wonder at it, considering ielr principles in relerence to the establishment uestion. Tho Rev. Capbl Molywecx spoke strongly ifl ivor of tbe revision of tbe Prayer Book and of ie rubrics. Ho said (amid expressions of dlsjnt from members of the Church of England) lat he would a thousand times rather see dtsesibllBhment than the contlnaancc of the present (ate of things. Lord Ebuhy proposed the appointment of a large ammlttee, wnich Lord sbaltesbury said he ould regard as a vigilance committee to watch 'bat was done by other committees. Alter some further discussion a series of resoluons were unanimously adopted to the following ffect:?That noncomiormists, as well as churchten, have tbe right to inslat that the Church of niriand. while it exists as an establishment, shall xlst only as a Protestant Institution; that, condoling the growth of KomanUt principles in the bnrcb, this meeting calls upon all Protestant nffllahmen to use their utmost efforts to comlete the relormatlon, and by all means at their Isposal to secure the pure teaching or Protitant truth throughout the Empire; that a ise and judicious revision of the tormularles of ae Church or England aa fixed by the acts of nlformity Is chiefly needed In order to take away ie alleged support which ritualism finds In these >rmularles, and to promote more Irlendly relations itb tuose nonepiscopal bodies which accept the reat leading doctrines oi the Protestant Keformaon; that sumo common action Is desirable in order ) bring public opinion to bear upon the Legislature >r the accomplishment of these objects, and that ie committee he appointed to consider the further stion In this matter. Lord 8uAPTEMBmY said he regarded what had een done as a purely t.-ntatlve and experimental Tort, and expressed his satlsraction witu what iey had accomplished. The conference lasted three hours.

A Night's Experience with Bruisers and Buffers. UQU0BIH6 UP FOR THE OCCASIO! A Midnight Ride Over Sandy Roads, with Mosquitoes and Dust FORESTALLED BY THE BROOKLYN POLICE. Seddoas, His Backer, Tr , hier and Second, Hooked and Crooked and ha Great Clambake of the Season Postponed to a ore Convenient Time. Ministers, doctors, newspaper men and other professional persons arc oompelled by their calling to make strange acquaintances and to mingle in every lorm and phase of society. The disreputable as Weil as the reputable mnst be met and treated courteously or otherwise by each. None but the news gatherers, however, mingle so frequently with the extremes of soolety. Their business brings them In contact with the most brutal and bestial of the race, as well as the most refined and cultured. They bring their news from far and near, and the reader ficarcelv ever kens the pain or pleasure experienced In the harvesting or the news which hie dally morning paper brings to his breakfast table. It was the wrlter'B fortune, for good or ill, to follow a party which on Friday night left this city stealthily and unnoticed to engage In a violation of the laws or the State or New York. Arthur Chambers and George Seddons were, according to previous agreement, to meet In some retired spot at Far Rockaway and to pummel away at each other's bead, race and body until one or the other should cry "Hold, onougn I" Then the victor was to receive the applause of his friends and be by them dubbed the champion light weight boxer or America?an honor, or course, greatly to be coveted and longed for, but which lew men would dare to attempt to wrest from the successlul pugilist. the fight pizzi.ed, however, and one of the principals became a prisoner in the hands of the Brooklyn police, no doubt greatly to his own If not to others' relief. The business, being illegal, was kept a profound secret, or It was supposed to be, so that only a few or the very knowing ones had any conception at nine o'clock on Friday nlgnt where the fight or fizzle was to take place. At hair-past nine o'clock, however, a note was left in the Herald police bureau, In Mulborry street, advising the interested and anxious ones to hasten by coach down to a drinking shop in Canal street, corner of Hudson street, where the mystery was to be unravelled. Thither we wended our way, and, with the aid or a sprightly pair ol horses and oorrlage and an obliging Jehu^ w^ arrived at the rendezvous In a brier time. But there were hair a dozen other rendezvouses betide Tom Smith's, and each one had Its own part/ to attend to. Carriages were coming and going for two hoars, some stopping north or south or the place in jtfaieil or halting on the opposite side of the street. Square-headed, short-haired, heavymnatached or clean-ffhaven men stepped out of the coaches and into th0 ram shop, and for two hours alcohol was allowed Jtree scope to develop the beastliness which lorked^thln these human beings. A LONG NIQHT AN? A DARK ftttffl) ' were before them, and a good supply this po- * tent agent of crime was absolutely necessary for the Journey. At ten minutes to midnight the mysterious party started from the rendezvoas, at Canal and Hudson street, In coachcs and headed for Broadway, down which we cantered by way of Fulton street to Fulton ferry. A brief stay was made at the corner or Fulton and South streets to liquor up again and to make sure or a bottle or two for the night. While waiting there and on the ferryboat, after ascertaining the route to be trav. elled and the distance by the same (twenty-one miles), we composed ourselves for a lltMe nap during our silent ride or fonr or more hours. But "nature's sweet restorer" was evidently ill-pleased with our mission and refused to restore, and our eyes had to gaze on the darkness and the waving trees aud herbage by which we passed until day llKut, urigiiLKiiu ucaimiui, ui'^c uu uui tioiuu. It was hall-past twelve o'clock midnight as we slowly trundled along up Fulton street hill, Brooklyn, and nothing of consequence transpired until our carriages drew up at a liquor shop, yclept hotel, at Kast New York. There our aruor received a damper which might have caused hearts less Btrong and weaker nerves than ours to quake and quiver. While THB CABBIAOt PARTIES STOPPED TO "LIQUOR" and reiresh mine host informed us that fourteen carriages had passed that way since midnight, and that at least six ot them were filled with policemen from Brooklyn. Cool calculations were then made as to the number of blue coats that might, have passed along in those six carriages. Our arithmetic man soon told off tne aggregate?four inside and one on the box with the driver, multiplied by the numler of carriages, wonld make thirty. "Pshaw!" said our sporting whilom friends, "they're nothing; we can easily get away with that handlul." But the sequel told the mistake. Another of the wise ones did not believe any policemen had passed that way?the matter was kept too profoundly secret to get to the ears of the police; while still another couid not conceive what authority the police force of one county could go into auother county to make arrests, and he did not believe they wonld. "And yet," added another speaker, "they do such thingB, and there's the rub." However darkening the prospect might appear, we determined totcontinue our journey, we haa gone too far- now and the expedition had cost too much already to think of tirnlag back. Entering our coaches, therefore, we left tast New York beaind us, and still there was a ride oi fourteen and a half miles before us, according to our milestone man's reckoning. But at this halting place our party took the precaution to pick up a guide who was supposed to >be thoroughly conversant with all the labyrinthitis highways and byways of sand that led to the objective point. tiii piTnii faiM' pirvtr mrAim. The original intention of our party was to follow the Jamaica plankroad and reach Kockaway by that route. But after we bad gone some distance toward that point we met a picket guard stationed by our pugilistic general to warn all midnight travellers In that direction that the defeuders of iaw and order had gone thither and we had better take another route, along which we were directed. Our subsequent Information demonstrated the prudeuce oi this move: for the police had also picketed the entire road from the function of the Jamaica plankroad with the other highway clear to the village and beach or Rockaway. Our new route was therefore an absolute necessity unless we were willing to turn back wnen the goal, If not the prize (light), seemed almost witnln our reach. We were all utter strangers to the new route, save the guide whom we had picked up at Bast New York. It wits more like our schoolday puzsle of the wails of Troy than anything we had seen from those days to these. We turned and twisted and doubled and , rounded capes innumerable, and a dozen different times at least we thought we could discern the white-crested waves and the glittering sands upon the bcach. But ever and anon we were as distant rrom tneuemreu spot Ana iineir our piace ui nunins apparently as when we aet out two or three bourn beforo. At length t1ik dat dawnkd and we began to take a reckoning. Only one man of our company or tlftoen or twenty had a watch with him. The rest or uj who had erer had watches had conveniently forgotten them, and, In onr haste to get off, had also neglected to Insert our diamond shirtstuds and emorald sleeve buttons. The attention of our whilom friends would not be likely, therefore, to bo diverted by our guttering gewgaws from the (treat business In band. The tedious hours ol the lonely night wore enlivened by tale* or battles (ought and victories won in the prize ring In days and years gone by. The ludicrous plight in which some members ot our parry found themselves on a memorable ocoaslon not long ago, when Mace and Coburu's irlcnds, numbering three or four nundred, were arrested in Mlllord and taken to New Haven, where, to TBI MU81C OP "TH? ROUUI'S MARCH,>' or some other appropriate air, thev paraded tho streets of that city, and ere they left Its classic shades gave a liberal, though compulsory, donv tlon toward liquidating the debt of the city, was told, with a relish or saroastlc hnmor in It. And thus the tedium of the night was measurably relieved. But all things have an end, and so had our jour nej. it wm not, uo we vox, iu?u " ? bad anticipated. The midnight and morning stars nad, for more than an hour, hidden their pale bine light in the brighter effalgenoe or the rising nun, to tbat long before we reached our destination we began to think that oar clroUtoai route had beU*4 u Uiftt Uw "ssoxiV. lQ?ia \t% ??w? or nearly ho, by the time we should arrive at tkt ground. Early as it was la the morning, we met % ikrmer going to bit haying, ud irom dim learned ' THE BRUI8BB8' RHTOOS was yet four and a half miles distant. The end of these tour and a hair miles brought as, not Into tlie prize ring, bat square into the arms of a hundred policemen, more or le*a. Oar carriages were surrounded, and we were all made prisoners for the time being. Then, for the first time, the trutn and timeliness of oar East New York host's warning flashed like electricity Into oar mlnda. Hem we were, prisoners of State or of war. It seemed B? If Jonah had swallowed the whale, instead of the whale taking In Jonab. The aggregated crowd of "sports" had hoped to have captured the handful of poUoemen, but they were to the hands of tb? latter. The tablea were turned, and all that tha crowd could do was to submit as gracefully aa was possible under the circumstanoes. Inspector John Folk commanded the police, assisted by captains McLoughlln and Woglom and Sergoant Smith, and so cleverly did tbe veteran Inspector manage hia part of tne "sport" that the crowd were In hia hands before tbey knew where they were going. 'INTO THB ABM8 Or POLX RODS TUB TH8U ' HUNDKEO." A few hundred yards from the "Alhambra" there is a bend in the road, and until we turned that point we could see nothing but the houses and trees of the village. But aa goon as we had rounded the corner we saw a crowd of citizens and heard lond talking, and sopposed, of course, that we were to be lavored spectators or the t) it tit ror run. Mot a solitary blue coat or baton percclved we in sight. The veteran commander understood hlB business better than that. While a score or more of his men were in uniform the rest were in citizen's clothes, and all well armed. And hence thoM whom we believed to be the friends and admirers of the ring were the guardians oi those who were, and whom they had shrewdly thrust back from view, lest they should give a signal to tne incoming unconscious crowd. And, as the crowd baa separated into different bands, or "gangs," ss they preferred to call themselves, and each had come thither by a different route, so the whole lot was captured aericMm, and resistance was too at?* surd to be thought of. At one time, however, WE KliAltKD A 1UOT might have been precipitated. One of the pugilistic fraternity, who had oome In the party in wnlok we were comprised, pretended to be grossly offended when Inspector Folk and Captain MeLoughlln searched him for firearms. He insinuated that they wanted his money, and, as he insisted he bad come down to the beach to spend a week or two lor his health's sake, the presumption of course was that he was quite flush of funds. Bat what improvement a stay at the beach, short or long, would do him was a mystery to more than one spectator and listener. It could scarcely ro> flue him, and to make him more bestial than ho seemed to be at the moment would be to deprive him of whatever apparent remnants ol humanity remained la mm. to his insinuation the Inspector quickly retorted, '*1 don't want your money. I'm no thief." He then responded, "Neither am L" Then followed the cabalistic queries irom bold sides, "Who said you werer" The Inspector evidently knew that be had the game In his own hand, and hence he could threaten that if the "sport" did not "shut up bia gab" he would "smack" him across the mouth with nls club. And he added, significautly, "If yon want rough and tamble I'll give you all you'll need of It." The other quieted and the search went on. tub abrkstll) principal and baokebs. A chap named John Murphy was found in po?> session of a large horse pistol, about eighteen lnchcs long and heavily loaded. Be was promptly disarmed and banded over to the tender care ol a couple of officers. He was the prime mover In this fight and Seddons' strongest backer. One Colvin, a reporter of the Clipper, was the possessor ol another pistol, not so'large or savage looking aa Murphy's, but be had to give it up and take bis place with the other. As Inspector Folk remarked, "They meant business." besides these two, George Seddons and Ills second, a fellow named "snatchem" or "Soratchem" or some sueh euphonious sobriquet, and George Leese were captured and hurried off in coaches to Brooklyn, care fully guarded by officers. HOW TIIK BRUISERS OAVK THEMSELVES A WAT. But how did the Brooklyn police learn about tltt nilUuiglit expedition and get to the ground almost ane'ao of the lighters and their friends? Thai Is a query which greatly troubled the short-haired, tlUck-necked gentry, and they sought a solution ol the mystery In every possible way. Many of them acknowledged that they themselves did not know the selected spot uutll an hour or so before they started, and they bad wade all possible haste, but the officers had been before them. How did it happen? They would not themsolves think of "glTing away" the fizzled fighters in this way. Hence they concluded and openly charged Sedaons with "giving hlmsell away." When tbe atfalr had blown over, however, the officers explained alL The apparent mystery was no mystery. As eajjr as nine o'clock toe car conductors on tnt Grand street line, Brooklyn, were able to tell certain ol their passenger friends the time and place of the fight, ana tne several modes of conveyance to get there. And at a quartet* to ten P. M. It had been telegraphed to every precinct in Brooklyn and seotioiis 01 men irom each precinct had been sent to ! a common meeting place, where carriages were ' t th&ing to convey them to Rockaway. They starfwj, therefore, soon after rteveflP, M., and got , there almost as soon as Seddons and "Snatcheia." DISTRIBUTION OF THE POLIOS. While squads of the police were sent to guard the be&ch, with orders to arrest any of the principals or seconds who jnlght come by that route, and other squads wer? set to watch the different land entrances to the vllftae, the main portion drew up at the "Alhambra," which place they so oarefollj surrounded that there wjui no possible chanoe ol Ctlt ape. aeuuorw uuu ms aciuuu, nuu iibu uuun down on tha train on Friday night and were domiciled here, made a dash for Uu> attic of that tavern, with the evident intention OT rushing through a window and jumping down in the rear, but Captain McLoughlln was just a trlrtc too smart tot them, and Seddons, seeing escape was hopeless crawled under a bed, from which place he was dragged by the Captain. He submitted with tb? best grace possible, nis only regret being that ki could not have the captain In a twenty-iour acrs lot for a couple of hours alone. The Captain now, however, bad him In a quarter acre lot, and was master of the situation. "Snatchem" was eap? tured at the same time, and botb were started foi the city, as already stated. Dad these buffers sue* ceeded In escaping through tbe attic window then capture would have been equally certain; for, m Captain lfcLougblln remarked, tbey could not po* sibly go anywhere ezccpt into the arms of a score or more ol policemen. Seeing that the sport wai spoiled thus summarily and no immediate chanot left of renewing it the crowd of roughs deported themselves very quietly, and, having been released lrom constructive custody, roamed about the riU lage at will aud drank and smuked and fraternised with their captors until the latter entered theti coaches to return home by the same weary, dusty, moriquito-lnfeeted roads by which they had gone iUvUOI. THB 91DDON9' GANO. A more brutal or dehumanized set of men than this K^ng, who rather delighted themselves than otherwise In being considered "Scddons' gang," the writer has never seen gathered together at one time or In one^place. They looked as if they would slit a throat as readily as they would a pocketbook, and would rip up a human body as quickly as they would cut out an old pocket. They wan all pretty well dressed and all commeudably sober. It was very plain, however, that they had drank considerably on the road. But where was Arthnr Chambers while all this fun waa transpiring and while the police were so anxious to shake his bands r He was Invisible. No one could tell where he was. lie might have been in the village for aught they knew, though the probability was that he had not arrived. Tm officers had made a search for him in vain. Ha coald not be round, and it was suggested, as tka most probable explanation of his absence, that some one had given him "the tip," and he had postponed his visit to Roctaway for the present. The Vlghttn la Limbo. The three prisoners, Seddons, Lees and MurpHy. were taken Defore a Brooklyn Justice; but, Um Court not having Jurisdiction, they were remanded to Justice Snedeker, at Jamaica. They pleaded not guilty. The Justice held them, however, and asked them If they were ready to have the examination go on. They said they were. It was then twelv* o'clock, and tho Justice adjourned the case unUl half-past one P. M. At that time the prisoned stated that they had no witnesses, and asked that the examination be postponed and that they be admitted to DaiL This the Jnstio* refused. The examination was then adjourned till ten o'clock A. M., Wednesday, the 30th Inst. Murphy was anxious to retora home to his family In New York, but the Justice firmly refused. As they all complained bitterly, the Justice told them that if they would waive aa examination he would give them Irom now until the time appointed for the examination to secure $1,000 bail eaoh to appear at the court of Special Sessions in September, but that If they did not furnish it by that time the examination wonld be proceeded with. They were ail will* ing to waive tne examination, but were * itmihtfiil whether thov vmilil hn bKIa furnish ball. Tney were then turned over to Um Sheriff, who contacted them to the cells. During the conversation with the Justice Scddons asked His Honor If he would answer him question, the question being what constituted prizefight? The Justice replied that where two or more men congregated together and had the paraphernalia of a ring. Sergeant Melding told His Honor that, they had them then.
