Tlie Corporation Counsel Attacks the
Street Openings Under Tweed.
Urns and Impotent Conclusion of the
Black Friday Suit.
An Old Litigation Growing Out of the China
A nil far some tint pending in the bum of Charles
0. Cornell, James B. Nicholson and Ellen M. Haanai.y,
administratrix of James 8. Heanessy, deceased, to re
cover from the city tho sum of $105,632 40 for costs
and charges as commissioners In street videntsgs, was
suddenly arrested in its course, yestercay, by an
order of Injunction granted by Judge Barrett in
Supreme Court, Chambers. It will be remembered that
the plaintiffs Cornell and Nicholson and James 8.
Honnessy were commissioner* for the widening of
Broadway, a piece of worn carried on under the rule of
the late Boss Tweed, and tho money sued for is for
their service* in that capacity. The application for
the Injunction, wnich restrains tho further prosecution
tf that suit, was made by Assistant Corporation
Counsel Roquier on behalf of Corporation Counsel
Whitney, based on an elaborately prepared com
plaint, in which the city is n\ude plalrillQ and ibe other
parlies defendants. This cumpiaiut, in addition to
praying lor tho Inunction mraady mentioned, asks
the Court to oxerciso its equity powers in setting
aside a judgment rendered against tno city and in Javor
?! tho deiendants In this action, it charges thai there
were numerous fraudulent and excessive overcharges
'Deluded ru the pretended costs and charges and ex
penses of the Commissioners sued lor, and claims that
ibo allowance tberool be'ore the Unal report of the
Commissioners by Judge Cardoso, "without any oppo
?ition being made thereto" by the then Corporation
Counsel, should not be allowed to bind the city. In
tno seventh paragraph of the complaint there is al
leged, among other startling overcharges, that while
lite improvement was no more than eight raihs in its
go..oral outline or l mits, bv the insertion of super
fluous boundary lines and counting lines over which
run the common boundaries ol contiguous lots, a num
ber of feet is charged lor, which Is equivalent to 16d
miles, and with the copies ot the report to 332 miles.
It is also claimed thst a vast amount of uescriptivo
matter forbidden to bo charged lor, in such proceed
ings, by a statute passed for the prevention of just such
Irauds, is ombruced tu and exorbitantly charged tor in
Ibo report.
The bill docs not seek to disturb the Cnal confirma
tion of mo proceedings by tho Supreme Court; but us
object, as disclosed by its allegations and prayer
lor Judgmcut, is to readjust this enormous taxation
tnd io return the surplus of assessments wnich will be
thereby saved to the city and other parties who may
>?> entitled thereto, through tho machinery ol a re
selver or such other menus as the Court may consider
test lor the purpose ol tho pro rata distribution of ihe
Duds thus economized. The prouortiou at tho city
ilone in this alleged overcharge amounts to 542,185 30.
?bis suit Is understood to be the first advance of a
rigorous attack -by the Corporation Counsel on tho
jreat frauds heretofore perpetrated in this fluid of
tiunicipal malversation. Accompanying tho order ol
injunction an order was made directing the parties cn
loincd to show cause In Supreme Court, Chambers, on
Monday next, why the injunction should not bo uiAJo
permanent. Tho overcharges of which complaint is
made are estimated at $34,370 61.
The long protracted trial of tho suit brought by Do
Witt C. Taylor against Jay Gould and others to recover
losses alleged to have beon sustained through pur
chasing gold for tho defendants on Black Friday
reached yesterday a sudden termination, and one that
was rather a surprise aud disappointment to the crowd
that has throngod tho court room since the commence
ment of the trial, over a month ago. At the conclu
sion of the argument tu opposition to the motion to
dismiss tho complaint, Mr. Beach rose to reply, when
Judge Barrett said there was no necessity to muko any
further argument, as he hud come to the conclusion,
after a night's reflection, that he could not allow the
case to go to the Jury. He dismissed the complaint on
the ground that the contract to buy the gold was not
proved to have been signed or subscribed by Speyers
or his agent, aid also that there was no evidence to
show the existence of the memorandum. Tho
statutes of fraud, he said, so loug as they were
up.in our statute books must be observed, and
this whole transaction was In violation of the
law. It wag not shown by Speyers that it was his cus
tom to observe the statute of frauds at all. Judge
Barrett, In concluding his remarks, said that the
trouble was that the manner of doing business us testi
fied to by Speyers and other brokors was without
regard to iho law. It would porhsps lake ten seconds
for the gentlemen who transact their business lu the
Gold and Stock Exchange, when their contracts are
made in open market, to sign bought and sold notes
and baud them to each other at the tlmo they make
the transaction. - But they never do that. They rely
udou their own law. They make U lor themselves.
They have their own institution, bylaws and ma
chinery, and they pay uo more attention to the statutes
ol frauds or the statutes ot this State generally than it
they wero not in existence. The trouble Is tbat wben
they find tlictr own laws and their own machinery
Inadequate tor tbclr own protection?when they find
themselvea either outw itted, wronged or oppressed and
the full force ol tno tnachiuury of their own laws is in
adequate to protect themselves?they come at last to
the courts of justice to afford loom the protection
which they have not the ability to carry out them
selves, being alt the lime regardless ol the funda
mental law on whlcb alono they can tnvoko that pro
tection. Uo said this now without any ottcnco to auy
one in tbls case. That wui the purport ana effect of
the evidence in this esse. He should be glad to See
bla way clear to aubmil tbe question tairly whether or
nut theso parlies were Joint adventurers In these
transactions. I'nder the circumstances, however, he
foil compelled to dismiss the complaint.
sir Sullivan took an exception and asked that the
disputed points be submitted to tbe Jory. These re
quests were reluscd. Mr. Shearman moved ror an
extra allowance ol Ave per cent. This motion was
opposed by Mr. Sewell and others. ,
After a short reply by Mr. Beach, Judge Barrett said
he should compel the deioated party to pay all the costs.
He thought it would be equitable under tbe circum
stances: s moderate allowance would be sufficient, and
ba would therefore give en extra allowance of two per
A very Interesting suit, the present being Its third

In the United States Supreme Court yesterday the
following cases were heard:?
No. 128. Smith A Smith vs. Oenig sad Id#?Error to the
Circuit Court lor the Southern District of Ohio.? This
was an action tor tne infringement or the territorial
rights of the Smiths under aa assignment of the ex
clusive rtgnt to tho use of the "Wilson leed" on the
kind of machinos known as the Singer machines, in
Franklin county, Ohio. On the trial it appeared thai
the assignment did not cover auy interest in the
Singer patent, and the defence was that the machines
used wire the ordinary singer machines, made as
Singer machines had always been made, and tbst the
uelendants were authorized to use them so made, by
an assignment irom ens Lowe. The Court rusta.ueil
the dclence, and it is here insisted that the rights of
the defendants extended, under the assignment, only
to the right oi using the Singer machines as patented,
and did uol authorise thoir u?c oi those machines now
made with the Wilson teed. William J. Lawrence tor
plaintiffs in error; George Gilford lor defendants.

tbe Circuit Court lor the >outberu District ol New
York.?This was an action by Benjamin Y. Butler to
recover lor Russian iron which, it is alleged, be sold to
the dcleudauta, but ihey refused to accept The Court
below ruled thai as there was neither partial delivery
nor a written contract, the amoout involved being
over $50, tbe case was within tbe statutes ol frauds or
the Stale of New York, whicn controlled tho contract,
and the Judgment was lor the defendants. It is here
insisted that the statement of ealo made in their books
by the seller's brokers, a copy of whicb was sigued
and delivered to tbe delendauts, constituted a written
contract of sale, and that tbe decuiou below that it did
not is contrary to the authorities ou tbe subject.

as a passenger on tbe Obio River, the neamer
having collided with tbe Ami-rca(bolh boat* belonging
to the plaintlfls in error), In consequence of wbicb both
tbe tic.-irners were burned. Tbe question in tbo case
Is whether under the statute el Indiana, giving dam
ages in such coses, under wnicb It is brought, there
c.n be a recovery. Tho Court below susumed the
law, and it here insisted that it impoees a new l.ability
unknown to the laws of the L'ulied flutes resulsting
navigation, and that it is an unauthorized burden on
commerce. It is also contended that tbe licenses of
the veesel* frees the plaintiffs In error from the lia
bility sought to be imposed by tbe Indiana statute, and
that It makes no difference that the occurrence w is
below low water murk, within the jurisdiction etaimed
for the state, if the river was navigable at that point.

As application was recelvod'from the Twenty-second
regiment for an armory, which was laid oeer.
Alderman Parroy introduced another resolution re
lative to the issuing of bonds by tbo Comptroller lor
completion of the Brooklyn Bridget It Is understood
that some too finical informality exists in the wording
of the resolution passed two weeks since, which neces
sitates the passage of a new ordinance. There also ap
pears to be wome doubt as to tbo number of votes re
quired, only sixteen being cast for the first resolution.
The matter was laid over for future consideration.
The report of the Bridge Commissioners for the month
of March was received, which set down the expendi
tures at 94,103 80 and the receipts at $138 8L

ported in favor of executing a lease for five years at an
aunual rent of $8,000. When the resolution was called
up yesterday a motion was maas to reduce the amount
to $0,000, Alderman Purroy remarking that a bad odor
surrounded a former leaae of theeo unices, which gave
$18,000 per annum for ten yeara The amendment end

Eighteen votes ot the Aldermon are required to give
the necessary authority lor pay moot. Sixteen could
only be secured In the affirmative yesterday, so the bills
were again laid over, notwithstanding earnest protests
by Messrs. Tuotnoy and Shells, Utsi year a minority
report was made in lavor of paying $4,;i0U. When the
proposition to pay $5,000 was silled at yesterday's
meeting Alderman Morris moved the minority report
bo placoa upon the general orders In order itai it
might be called up at any time. This motion ereated
considerable debate. Alderman Morris aald that soma
sttscbds of the hotel hud come around the City Hall
and Inquired how much it would cost to put the bill
Thie assertion brought Alderman Plnckney to bis
feet, wno seemed to take the Imputation as to fraudu
lent movements to himself, lie denied excitedly that
say such approaches bad been mado to bis knowledge.
He asked tne proprietors of the hotel lu relation to
tbo rumor, and tbcv denied any responsibility what
ever. Mr. Ptnckncy was Clerk of the Common Coun
cil when the city tendered this reception to King
Alderman Morris asked for an opportunity to answer
the remarks of his colloegue, Aldenuau Pinckney. A
motion to that etTsct was lost. Several members here
arose and talked at the same time to tho Chair. The
Board at this moment might be compared le a men
agerie. Alderman Tuomey contended that the uon
puymont of tbo bill was a disgrace to tho city. Alder
man Ptnckncy followed in the same strain. The whole

Yesterday afternoon an officer found n man dressed
in a soldier's garb sitting upon tbe curbstone at tbe
corner of Twenty-third street and First evenue. He
apiwared to be eufTeriug greatly, and when questioned
by tbe officer explained that be was bleeding internally
from an old wound iu tbe lunge received at the battle
ol Gettysburg. Ho was convo) ed toBellevue Hospital
where be gave b;a nam* as that of Hubert Irwin, a
soldier on luriougb irom Dayton, Obio. An examina
tion a surgeon sbowed no wound nor hemorrhage,
it soon became evident that the man was insane, and
be was consigned to the ocila
Officer Gillespie, of the Eighteenth precinct, came I
grief yesterday while trying to pnes inspection with
borrowed coal As Captain Cope land turned up tb
cuff of his sleeve to mark It with mnriatic acid fa
noticed a mark previously made thcrai Gillespie pre
tested that he burrowed tbe coal only because bis ow
was with ib* tailor. He w*e taken before the Suprne
undent, who lectured bun on the pernicious result ?

eeHhed to appear for trial aest week.
The Maundy Thursday services m lb* Catholic
churches yesterday were very tote res tlog, mad were all
atteudod by Urge oumber* of worshippers. At the
masses to the moruiag the bust was consecrated, which
was borne In procession around the churches to the
liltlo re|iosliorlee prepared for It on the temporary
altars. These processions were formed by the cele
brant ol the mass, his assistant priests and a number
of altar boys dressed In cassock and surplice. While
the processions moved around the churches the hymn
'Tango Lingua" was sung.
The office of the Teuebrse was chanted at the Cathe
dral, in Mulberry street; St. Ann's, East Twelfth streot;
St. Nicholas', hast Second street; the Kodemplortsts'
church, hast Third street; the Jesuits'church, West
Sixteenth street; the Franciscan church, la Sullivan
street; St. Stephen's cburcn, East Twenty-eighth
street; the Dominican church, Sixty-fifth street and
Lexington avenue, and at the Pauiists' church. Fifty
ninth street and Niuih sveuue.
At the Cathedral the Cardinal Archbishop was unable
to assist at any ol the services, and tb? episcopal lunc
t.otf of blessing the oils to be used in the archdiocese
during the year In administering the rite ol extreme
unction to the dying was performed by Bishop Lough
liu at iho Brooklyn Cathedral. In the afternoon iho
largo vases containing the oils were conveyed from
Brooklyn to the Cathedral on Mulberry street, where
the priests ot the archdioceso continued to cull during
the duy for the usual auunal supply, which is pre
served by each priest In a small sliver case that cau be
couvemently curried In the pocket on the wuy to or
Irom a sick bed. Owing to the illness of the Cardinal
the con*rcguiiua at the Cathedral unused scelug the
very Interesting ceremony of the blessing of the oils,
at which a large number uf priests generally assist, and
which is very soletuu.
To-day the mass will be said at which the host conse
crated ou Holy Thursday, and which during that day
was reposing in the repository, is cousumod, no conse
cration ol the bread and wtho being permitted by the
Church on Uood Friday, the ouly day in the year that
auch a restriction is placed upou the clergy. At the
masses this morning the ceremony of
c.nvkiuxq tus caoss
will take place, and the purple covering having been
removed the crucifix will then be exposed to the faith
ful, who will approach the altar rails aud kiss iho leet
of the Saviour's image. A cruclUx will remain in trout
of the sanctuary in each church during the day, for tits
purpose ol having this commemorative reverence per
lormed by those who may havo been unable to attend
at the morning service. This will be the third and last
day when the office of the Tenebrie will be sung and
sermons on tbo death of Christ, or on tubjocis inti
mately connected witn the Qnal scene ou Calvary, will
bo preached, either at the luornihg or evening service*,
in all the-principal churches. At the Cathedral the

As ovcry church in the city puts forth Its best efforts
to surpass its neighbor in the beauty ol Its temporary
altar lor Maundy Thursday it muy be easily coujec
lured how lavishly beauiilul were all these repositories
yesterday. Flowers and lights, gold aud sliver cloth,
laces, gauzes, costly articles of vertu appropriate to an
aliur, oil commingle iu the formation ol out o! theso
tittle sanctuaries. At night time, when iho darkness
hud set lu, the sight was especially inviting, aud thou
sands ol pursous iu the city were traversing the struets
Irom ouo church to another In carrying out the old
custom of malting short visits to the churches ou Holy
Thursday. The repository at the Cathedral was very
elegantly gotten up, iho design being chaste and tho
ornamentation rich, but very simple. At St. Stephen's
church, in East Tweiuy eighth street, the altar was
exquisitely arranged, the dowers and lights aud costly
ornaments being displayed to the greatest advantage.
The repository at St. Ann's, lu KastTwellth street, was
uo less buauuiu! In all its decorations, sad at tho Jesuits'
church lu West Sixteenth street a mostretluod selection
in material and the display of dowers and lights was
apparent. In luct in all ihe churches there was some
thing presented that was especially worthy of uduilra
tiou. lu very many of them iho tabernacles or coutro
pieces wheru the cibortums containing the host reposed
were r ch In tho extreme, and the most beautiful in de
sign and material.
The protracted session of the Now York East Confer
ence cauie to an end yesterday at noon, and by this
tlmo tha brethren who are to change are making due
preparations tbcretor, and beforo the 1st of May each
will be safely housed In his now quarters. There
aro a good many more changos than was at Qrst antici
pated, bat they are conilued chiofly to tbo second or
third class appointments. Nearly all the drat class
appointments in the cities remain as they were last
year. Supernumerary relations were granted to C. B.
Sing. J. A. Kocho and A. S. Francis, and resolutions of
thanks to the oOlcers and the hosts of the Conference,
to pastors and others, were adopted; also a resolution
of sympathy with Bishop Jones in his domestie afflic
Brother Fanning presented a resolution which set
forth that the Conference know that many church
members keep their stores open on the Sabbath, and
that many ministers ride and encourage riding In rail
road cars on the Sabbath, and he wanted the Confer
ence to protest against all such desecration o; the
Lord's Day. But wio brethren were not willing to look
at this mutter in the same light They did not know
of any such violations of
yhs sanctity or tub sabbath.
and If Brother Fanning did it was his duty to bring
proper charges against such persons and bavs them
expelled trom the Church. If by rsllroade be meant to
include city horse cars the Conference favored rather
than opposed those conveyances.
The resolution won laid oa the table.
An additional collection was taken up for Mrs.
Cowpcr, which nude the aggregate sum for her $201 26.
A collection of (97 62 was taken up lor the sexton of
the church where the Conference met. The Committee
on Domestic Missions, with the concurrence of the
Bishop, reported the following appropriations:?To the
New York district, $960; Long lalsud South district,
$2tiS; Long Island North, $2ss; Bridgeport, $220, and
