The Twenty-third Street Railroad Trying to Get
PoiifSRion 01 me isieecKer sireei Line.
ASKING A NINETY-NINE YEARS' LEASE
Mr. Austin Black's Suit Against the
Continental Bank.
Another Curious and Important
Bank Suit.
In Supremo Court, Chambers, yesterday, on application
of Mr. John M. Hcrlbuer, Jr., counsel for the
Bleecker Street Railroad Company, Judge Donohue
(ranted an ea parte order directing that the roceiver
ol the road, Mr. A. 8. Southworth, and all tbo parties
In two pending foreclosure suits who have appeared
and answered, show cause, on the 10th inst., why the
company should not bo authorised and permitlod to
make, execute and deliver a proposed lease to the
Twenty-third Street Railroad Company. In tbo petition
submitted to the Court, and on which the order to
how oause was made, it is stated that an examination
ol iho receiver's accounts has shown them to ba deceptive
and untrue; that in tbo report of his receipts
ho Includes $530 U2 cash on hand w hen ho took possession,
and also conductors' deposits and dally receipts
of the road down to and including February 27,
1870, while he omits to furnish any statement of his
expenses later than February 24, 1870, except an
Item of $13 expended on February 26, 1876; that,
omitting hi* receipts for tbo days for which his expenses
are not given, bis account showrs only nn actual
cash balance on February 24, 1876, of $3,588 82;
that he claims in his report to have expended $2,000
lor permanent Improvements, but his accounts show
no moneys disbursed except for the ordinary operating
txpenses of tho railroad; that ho also claims to have
paid on account of back wages and conductors' deposits,
$7,719 36; but whatever conductors' deposits ho
Pas paid out appear to havo been mado up by now doposits
from tbo conductors according to his own account,
and If it bo true that the receiver lias made payments
on account of wages in arrear at time of his appointineut,
it also appears that he is largely in arrear on
the payrolls for employes duriug the two months ol his
iduiinisiration; that theso tacts disclose tho incompleteness
and deceptive character of the receiver's report
and, taken in connection with tho dofamatory
statements against individuals conuccted with tho
nritir lunnriffitmpul of the road contained In both re.
ports, apparently made to thwart any efforts to rcscuo
the petitioner and its railroad from Its embarrassments
by means of tho proposed lease to tho Twenty-third
Street Railroad Company, seem to iudlcaie an intention
?n tho partorthe receiver to deceive tho Court, thestockboldors
and bondholders ol your petitioner by inducing
them to bollovc that the continuance ol' tho recolver
In otllce would result in profit and advantage to tho
stockholders, bondholders und creditors greater than
could arise Irorn the proposed leuso; that tho receiver
lias recently attended at Albany beforo tho Railroad
Committee ol' the Assembly, and personally and by
counsel advocated the repeal ot the law authorizing tho
proposed louse, with a view, as the petitioner believes,
to embarrass tho company and defeat its execution of
s plan intended to secure payment of all tlie just debts
ol the company, as well as to secure a punctual payment
of the interest hereafter lu accrue on its bonds
and a dividend to its stockholders, who hitherto have
derived no iucomo whatever front tbeir slock; tbut
with the same purpose the receiver sought to have
Jacob Kharp punished for contompt in soliciting the
assent ot stockholders to such proposed lease, although,
as the petitioner believes, said receiver well kuew that
tuch assent was only requested and obtained with a
rlcw to making the present application to tho Court for
leave to execute bucIi louse, as until the assent of a majority
of stockholders should he obtained no such application
could properly bo made or Intelligently
acted upon by the Court. Tho potition,
which is sworn to by John T. Conuver on
behalf of the company, further stales that
there exists no such delenso on the part o( tho company
as that some of its bonds are fictitious, as was
alleged In the receiver's amended answer, all tuo
bonds covered bjr the mortgage having been made for
good consideration and being binding obligations; that
during the two months the receiver bos been in office
be has paid no interest on any of the outstanding
botds, which lor the two months amounts to $8,10(1 00:
tbsl he has paid no root, which, including taxes and
assessments lor the same period, amounts to $1,729,
nor has he paid to the city the one per cent of tho
cross receipts, as required by law; that actual debts
have thus been incurred to the extent of $10,000 us
against the balance in the receiver's hands; that the
road is threatened with salo under execution, und ltd
pfficera, directors and stockholders havo at various
iiraos made efforts to raiso money to extrtcato the
iflalrs of the company from embarrassmont and bring
about a successful operation of its road, but none of
>- these ctlorU have been availing; that the Twenty-third
Street Company has accommodations to house all the
itoclc and cars of both roads and at a great saving of
expense and salaries, and the only resource
tell to the compuny to avoid protraoiod
and expensive litigation or judgment of foreclosure
and sale, and a sacrifice of its property,
rights and Interests appears to be tbe leasing of its
roud to soma party or corporation which will assumo
and agree to pay the existing dohts of the company
and secure payment of the interest on its bonds and
construct the extensions of the road which the company
has hitherto been unable to build; that If such extensions
were actually built the value of the road and j
properly would be largely increased, whereas, If sold
ouw, 111* tbe preseut depressed condition ot the money
market, the probabilities are that it would not bring
more than enorgh to pay tho outstanding bonds, leavug
the unsecured creditors wholly unprotected and
musing to IU stockholders an absolute loss of their
ilock; that the owners of more than three-fourths ol
he tlrst mortgage bonds, and a majority of the stock- I
loldors have asi-ented to the execution of the propoaod I
case, tor leavo to cxccuto which the present applica- j
.ion is made to the Court.

MR BLACK'S CERTIFIED CHECK.
Nearly ten years ago Mr. Austin Black, who was then
quite a prominent banker and broker in this city, ob.

REMINISCENCE OF THE REBELLION.
After the breaking out of the late war David lilslcy 1
resided at Grey town, 8. C., and was largely engaged io j
business there. Hotug a strong Union man and bold In
expression of bia I'tiion sentiments he found hit
sojourn In that Stato hedged about with a good deal of I
unpleasantness. At thia time the tireytowu Hank had '
dowu $17,OUU to ita credit in the Phuunlx Hank oi this
I city. As Mr, Itislcy had determined to go North an
| arrangement was made bv which he gave to the Greytown
Hauk $10,000 in cush and received Ita check for
that amount on the l'luetiix Hunk. It was not such an
easy matter for Mr. Kisley to get North, and when ho
did arrive here he took a blockade runner to Nasauu,
N. 1*., thence went to St. John and Irom the lutter
J luce came to this city, arriving hero ou ilia 4th of
auuury, 1805, nearly lour years subsequent to the
date ol his receiving the oheck referred to. On prepouting
the check to tho bank, which ho uid promptly,
he was told that It was a genuine check, that
there was tnonev in tho bank to meet
' it and that the bank would pay It, but that
it would be uecessur.v lor him to identity bunsslf
as the |>erson to whose order It wua drawn, on
the next day, although bis identification w..s fully
proven, the bunk refused to pay tbo check, giving us
a reason that the money bud bcou confiscated. 1'hu

suit brought by Mr. Kisioy against tlio Phoenix Hunk

Judge Van Vor.tt, holding Supreme Court, Circuit Ou

?S. Van Winkle, the delenco is that the money lu
question belonged to the Hunk of Grey town and was
duly confiscated by the United Stales government on
account ot iho bunk being a rebol Institution. Followlug

length, with citations of abtinduui authorities

suit stands at present.
RESPONSIBLE CUSTODIANSHIP.
John ?. Ross was formerly the confidential clerk
of Gcorgo llardcn, the contest for whose estate some
time ago so largely occupied the attention ol tho
courts. Mr. Ross claims that Mr. Harden, shortly before
his death, eutrusted him with a tin box
Containing $1,600,000 in money, stocks and other
securities. Ho now sues the administrators ol the fatale
to recover $10,000 as compensation for taking
care of tho box and its vuluubie contents. The case
came to trial yeslurday before Judge Speir, of the Superior
Court. It is claimed that the risk and respoit
sibtlltyof keeping safely the box and its contents
justly entitles the plaintiff to tho compensation domundid.
Tito delenco is In tho nature of a general denial.
It is probuble that the trial will occupy several
days.

IN EFFOBT IN BEIIALF OF THE MUBDEBEB OF
KA11A ALEXANDER.
In the Supreme Court, Special Term, Klnge County,
I'fiiianuu ??a iuauu yrsieruay oy me couueei lor
i'esacb N. Kubcusteln lor a writ of error aud stay of
>roceeding? before Judge Trait. Mr. Mott said that he
>elleved there was sufficient ground on which to base
ho application, and he was contldent tliat It ilis Honor
ound the oscoptiouH tenable an opportunity would bo
ilforded the prisoner to prove bis innocence. The first
ixception was In tho evidence of the doetor, A. W.
Ihepard, who mado the post tnortem aud tcatiOed that
iura Alexander's throat was out from behind frotn lelt
o right The question was subunttoa to tho Jury in
be Judge's charge, whether any murder had been done
>r was It suicide. The exception was, iberulore,
ilaluied as Important. Wbiln the clothes of the murderer
jf the wotuau must havo been covered with blood, the
Hollies of Kubeustem were tree from blood, except
two small stains inside the sleeve.
Tho second exception was in connection with the
dream ol Kubenateiu. Tho woman disappeared on December
12, and ou tho liilh Irieuds cuuie to tho houeo
of Hubenstein's lather aud made known tbo girl's disappearance.
The prisoner, In the midst of the oxciu
nnint, amoug various conjectures ana iu a iccuie condition
ul health, hud a vision. A wiiucss, who knew
Kubenslem lu the old couuiry, testified that ho had a
dream as to his mother's death. Tho question was
itien put, '*l>id he hear from his uiothor ulierward Y"
and it was objected to. The duloucc desired to show
that the dream iu relatlou to his mother was quite ns
true as the dream 111 relation to Sara Alexander. They
desired to show tbal dreaming was a habit, owing to
the condition of mind and body in which the prisoner
was.
The next exception was touching the exclusion of
evidence bearing on the physical condition of the
prisoner, which would, they claimed, show lie was not
capable of committing tho crime charged.
Kxceptiou wus also taken to the evidcnco 0s to the
prisoner having seeu "Quint" lu New York, at No lid
Division street. Tue testimony of Solomon Cramer
was also excepted to. Mr. lieach argued that the question
is u legal oneuB 10 whether the jury disregarded the
law, and he believed that lu the indulgence ot uu uu*
rcusouublo and bitter prejudice they did condemn.
If the Jury disregarded auy Instruction of the Court it
wus uu error, and the deicnce wus cnn lied to u new
trial. District Attorney Urittou opposed the motion,
tnd Judgo 1'ratl took tho papers, reserving his decision.

sum ol money ou the pretenco that he cotilil procure
In in a situation. At the Mulberry street slutiou house
the prisoner called for Captain Allaire, suytng that ho
hud an importuut communication to make. 'l'ho Captain
was soou at hand, aud the Italian, with a considerable
show of secrecy, stated that he could throw somo
light on the mystery ol' the missing Spaniard, lie then
went ou to say tliut ou Friday lust, at about four
o'clock I*. M., he was walking along Broadway, near
Fourteenth stroet, when he met u Spanish acquaintance,
wlioui he had once known in I'ans,
Naples und Constantinople, and whose reputation lor
being "crooked" was well settled, l'ico, on seeing
him, conceived the idea that he know something about
SoAor Halgado, and accused him ol being concerned In
the disappearance of that person. The muu turned
pale and took Irom his pockot a roll of lulls and, handing
0*0 of $100 to Pico, hogged him not to mention it
to any one. Ho then walked rapidly away.
Captain Allaire was so imprcs-ed w ith the story that
he took tho Italian to the Central otltcu, before Superintendent
Walling. The latter questioned him at considerable
length, hut could got nothing lurther than
what lie hud previously told. Pico assured the Superintendent
thut ho did not know the name of his friend
itnd bad no knowledge of his present whereabouts,
lie, however, gave a description of tho man, which was
iluly noted. The police ullribulo but little unporiauco
to tho story.
The detectives aro still without satisfactory results
from their labors In the cuso. The latest theory advuucod
is that the man who was scon to hill Into the
