ibowu yesterday by tl.e eu.sy c*i tpe ol William Con
nors, wbo was awailiun extradition to Massachusetts
on account ol ib? Northampton bank robbery, on
January 24, 1876. Connor*, lor whom a stay of pro
ceedings ban been granted, whie.i .va- to bo argued
to-day belore Judge Dan*, concluded that be would
not await tbe uuceruuu result u 1 the law, and upon
arsing from tn? dinner table coolly walkuu out Into
tbe office and thenco Into the afreet through tba outer
ioors, which bad been lull unguarded. 1'be Warden
It the jail, William Watson, had lolt about ton o'clock

nag :it the dining table at iho ninia lime Willi Connors, '
un<t three minuted alter Keeper McCtrly, whose duty
it was to guard tbe outer doors, entered, be weut j
out und found the doors open uud Connors none. |
MiCarijr declares that these doors weie Jvlt j
securely locked, and thai the cnlv way tbrfl
Connors could have escaped was eiluer by picking |
the locks or by having lalse key*. The lock picking i
supposition Is Durdly tenable, as it would require too j
much time and attract loo much suspicious attention i
lor it to be success! ui. Tuo false key theory is equally
untenable il the Wurdeu und keepers wore laitbiul in ?
their dalles and worthy of their position?. Indeed,
tho escape boars a suspicious uppearunce, und SberlO
Keilly expressed bis opinion very clearly that it was ;
owing either to criminal complicity or culpable uegii- I
fence. The escape occurred ul three miuutcs belore
oue o'clock, and ti wus known at the uewspuper olllces
belore two. A reporter who visited Ludlow Sweet
Jail immediately ulterward lound Keeper McCarty ut
bis post, looking very longiuced. He was extremely
careful, having the stable door securely lockcd after |
tlie horse was lost, and denied entrance to tho ro
portsr, speaking to biu in no very ploascni lone
through tho iron grating ol tbo door. He was exceed
ingly reticent, and reierred alt 'locations to Mr. Hard
tier to be answered, which latter gentleman, no said,
would bo lound ut ilia aborill's oiliju.

A truancy officer led a small boy into Jefferson
Market Court yesterday afternoon followed by 1
several cbllJren, who took seats on the first benches !
and anxiously awaited further proceedings. The boy
was about ten yours old, and bis name was Peter :
Koouey. Tue officer's charge was so direct against I
little 1'oter tUut Judge Wundell coucladeu lte was a ;
conurraed truuut, and accordingly committed biro.
Suddenly In tbe centre of the court room sprang up \
a girl or about thirteen years ol age. with thick matted 1
hair and a wlldcxpie.'sion of countenanae.
"You bave no right to lock my brother up," cried tbo
girl, "lie uidn't do nothing and lie does go to school. "
Oue of the court oiiicers took ner by the arm md
said, "gtiutup! Slop your noiso I"
"No I won't suut up," she persisted, 'That's my
llltie brother uud lie shan't bo lockoU up."
Judge Waudeli then signified to tho oiiicers to allow
the girl to come .orward. She iinuicJi.Uely rushed
through tbo iron gate, came as far as ibu J udgo's bunch
uud took a vigorous boiu of tbe iron railing near by.
"Wnut is your name*" nsked tin; Judge.
"\lciiy hum Kouncy,' she answeri-u hi a shrill, de
fiant voice that could bo beard throughout tbe ci>urt
"Mary Aoo, you must keep <tulet," said tbe Judge.
"1 wou't keep quiet. I want my little brother, uud
you havo no right to lock hnn up." here the girl no
came :.o violent that the magistrate ordered the olllcer i
to put her In Hie box. Her bold on tbe raillnc was so '
touacious, however, tbat it was not without cunsrJer- j
ablo difficulty that two ol the men disengaged her bunds
.She wm carried inside screaming and kicking. Just
beiore the closing of the court Justice Wundell sent lor
the demonstrative youuu lady, and she cuuie out, ber
eyes blinded with tears and her luce crimson with pas
'?Will you bshave yourself now f" asked the Judge,
"and try uud be civilt i'ou ought to bu asbumud ior
Oi ilng in tho wuy you did."
"Imn'tu Uu ashamed, and 1 was civil," sho ejacu
lated l>etwo*u bur sobs. "1 want to take uiy litWo
brother home, and you ougut to be atbaiued to lock
him up."
.lurtiio Wundell (sternly)? "Take her back,*' and
Mary Ann was sent to keep bor little brother company
lor the night.
An incident of a ssd mid p ilntul natnro occurred In
fbe Kiltv-seventh street Court yesterday. A little
girl, of only nine yenrs of ug?, named Viury Ander
son, was brought Into the court room by an olllcer,
who had found her In Twouty eighth street, near
Third avenue, crying as il bor little heart would
??What are you cry lug about, little one?" asked the

said, between ber sobs, "1 am homeless. Mot nor s

out ol doors and tbruw our furniture into the street,
and?oh h-b! ' Tbe little girl COUI4 tell no more, lor
her tear* and sobs canio back with redoubled force.
Near by wh?ru the cbi:d sat was the broken furni

A gentlem id conversant with railroad matters re
cently mated that the milk freights on a ccrtaiu road
running to New York paid the current expenses ol tho
company, uml that the passenger tariff was ull net
proiit. This may or may not be true, but U Is certain
that lb* ircigbi oil milk is groaler tbau on auv other
commodity. The rales charged by the railroads iu
crease the price of milk to such an extent that retail
i dealers are tempted to dilute tbo fluid when It comes
into their bands to order to nuke u profit. Occasion
ally, when tbo milk market is (ull, ti.e
producers get less per gallon than the rail
roads charge lor freight. Thus, lor instance,
last week, when milk was a glut iu toe
market, larmers along the line of the Krie ro?d re
ceived 1 cell I per gallon lor tnilk, while the road col
lected 1ceuts pur Italian toil. Most ol the so-called
milk trams carry passengers, and at stations where
the shipments ol milk are largo the company <looi not
handle (be cans, hut insist* that farmers shall porter
the trelent. One, two or three cars are run Iiorn the
m;<in r^ad ou a switch, sou a Urakeiuau Is loll iu
cuarge to receipt tor the goods and tnako out a manl
iest while the tanners haul the c.ius. The charge per
ean lor milt, on tne Krie road is l>, ceuts per gallon or
jj cents per can Irom any aisianoc, the same laics
boldicg good between 1'ort Jervis aud New York mid

Irom Passaic to New York. These discriminations
auaiust milk, tho retailers say, aro unjust, and ihoy
have olten petitioned the Legislature lor rcltel witu
out success. A certain deuler in New York,
a short lime since, made an arrange
tnent with the American Express Company
by which ihe company agreed lo and did deliver tuilk

or live cents less than he could get it himself at tne

railroad people, discovering thai this means ol irnus- !
porting milk across the river was becoming very popu
lar, stopped the exprosa company Irom shipping in ilk
over the road; or, bettor, charged the same lretghi as
the retailers pay.

Mr. Oakley remarked that tins law only alluded par
ticularly to storuge. I'be only object nought to be ot
luiucd by tbe Underwriters in tbu carrying out ot such
an ordiunnco wus in the protection ot lito and prop
erly. In tbe great 1'ortiand tlru the great danger
resulted from firecrackers, We Had uiuctv-tbrco tires
iu this city un the last Fourtli of July. Seven ol theso
wcro oausod by Chinese lanterns und seventy-six liy
firecrackers ana other llioworus. The speaker then
suggested that the explosion of Ureworks should 00 re
stricted to the public parks.
Aldermen Lkwik?The Common Council bas no con
trol ol tbe parka, and as tue ordinance ot lMjb and tue
act ot tbe Legislature of Is"! stand that body has no
coulrol over the mutter except as regards the tiring
or exploding ol fireworks.
Alderman Hiiwunu? 1 don't see bow any crdinnnco
can be stronger. It is positively prohibitory, and tbe
police are required to see that It Is enforced.
Mr. Kdwaru Linton, secruturv ol the I'yrotecimio
Association, expressed the opinion that the mum point
to be ascertained was whether or not thti Hoard of
Aldermen proposod to lukt any action ut this partic
ular time. Ho ulso hoped that some agreement mmht
be entered into between the Underwriters and fire
work dealer* so as to urevent thu oiilorceiiient ol tbo
ordinance on the Fourth ol July.
When tbe coniutittoo adjourned Mr. Oakley btated In
conversation that no attempt would bo made to en- |
force the ordinance uext montb, out that shortly alter
tbut duto ibe ilourd of Fire Underwriters and tho
pyrotechnic Association would uouler as to a perma
nent plan lor tbe sale, storage and explosion ot Uro
works lu this city.
At ? meeting of the Fire Commissioner* yesterday
tbo report of Kdward iireuot, loreuiuu ol engine com- |
puny No 34, wus received. He hud been appointed to
investigate tbe cause* of the late nupbtbu explosion \
ou the lighter Caution, und to learn In what quuu- |
titles that material was used by tho gas com- 1
I'auies. He reported Ibut OOU.UOO gniijua ol uapnihu
were stored in iron tunks ol only one-quarter inch
thickness iu the Mutual Oak Company's works ou

terial is required lor the production ol various oils and

1 oiuhiisiiblts llnruuu, with a suggestion that tbe law
touching tbe mailer bo rigidly enforced.

to fresh aoiivtiy id the coal dburus as proiuptud by the

tor the quarter endini: Juno 30 they are
u.-.tmiated to bo $000,317, or $40,300 de
cline. The surplus on Murcli 31 was (128,677;
ou July 1 It In estimated that It will be $138,181, or an
increase o( $10,000 over last quarter. Tins gum, how
ever, u an apparent one, since $134,207 was in the
previous quarter charged off to construction account,
while in the current one uo such item appears. It
will be necessary, therefore, to get at the true knowl
edge of the situatlou, for purposes ol comparison,
cither to add the abovo amount to the aurplud ol April
1 or to deduct It Irom that of July 1. By tlio lormer
piocohS wo llnu tbo result to be a difference In surplus
lor the present quarter of #124,003. Again, tor the
current quarter's work deduct iuterest ou bonds ami

($050,000), and uuu a sum remaining alter the abov?
disbursements of a littlo less 1..111 $10,000. Naturally
the exhibit was sutllcieotly unsatisfactory, nnd tnn
price fell oil Irom 01 to b'JJi under a heavy presstiro
to soli, though a rally brought it up to 00 bid at
the close. As tbo comparison botwoen last year's
business aud that ol this year, lor the coming
Ave months, can be scarcely other than to the preju
dice ot tho comp my, ior the reasons previously given,
the slock is likoiy to receive more attention in t?
speculative way than ha.-; recently been tlio case.
The Comptroller ol the Currency explodes the very
pretty story In which certain national banks figured us

Tho other excitement ol toe day, the sale of 200,000
tons ol PitUlou coal by the Pennsylvania Coal Cutn
p.my, v.a.i the innocent cause ol u bull movement
iimuug tho coal stocks. Thai such should bo the cute
Miov.s ouiy ton plainly that among brokers, us wall aa
among ordinary hum imty, a little knowledge Is a dan
gerons thing. Had the bull* ol Wall street lusted more
uooply of the Pierian spring It is hardly likely
that such would liuvo been tbo case. To-d.iy
| coal sold at pricea Irom twenty-live to
thirty ceuta below tuoso or the 1'itiston sale
ol lust tuonth, as will be seen by a perusal ol the
figures in our u?ws columns. The lirsl ell'ects ol tbil
upon tho coal stocka wus ? decline to 31 tor Lack??
w.inna, 2">J, lor Delawuro and Hudson and to 61lor
Morn4 and Kssex. Altor a while it was aaid that
although this decline In prices as regards the Pennsyl
vania coal sale* was indisputable, yol ut a suie ol tha
Delaware, Lackawanna and Western winch took placu
later than this Pennsylvania coal sale tho
prices wore qulto as low as the present ones.
TIi.h Is certainly true, bat Is ineroly an
ad capt(tndum argument, lor wblla the Lackawanna
coal is ueliverable in Uobokvn, tho Pennsylvania com*
pany'? coal is deliverable at Newburg, making a dtf
terence to New York coal dealers ol forty ccnta per
ton (or trausportntioo. As a acquol to tbeso specioua
arguments, and aided by tho largo short Interest, tba
coal alleles advanced and closed at aomo of tha high
est tlgurea ol tho day.
