Wolf, whose oflice is on 7th street, bet ween 1
and ( streets, reported that the sate used b
Judge Lvsander Hill and himself had bee
robbed of In bonds. &c , held by htm 1
trust for the Hebrew orphan Asylum. It a*i
pears that Mr. Wolf left theoilice to attend t
some out-door business, and was not. absen
more than an hour. Mr. Hill's office was va
cated shortly after Mr. Wolf left, it being suj
posed that Mr. Wolf, who had b"en las' a' th
s-afe. had closed. < m the return of Mr. \\ olf th
effice door was found to be locked, as the cler
of Mr. IHll left it, and the door of the safe wa
f. und cp<-n. with some paners scattered about
1 he several draw ers and apartments were a!
found locked. Mr. Wolf made a hasty examinn

when the detectives overhauled the si fe a pacl
ai;e containing $:i.",oo was found, which Mi
\\ olf overlooked. A package containing $700 '
registered 4 per cent, bonds only was lUtssln;
The opinion cf the officers is that Mr. Wolf lei
the safe open, supposing that the clerk woul
close It. and the latter left thinking that Mi
Wolf had made It secure, and that some ord
nary thief did the work who knew nothing c
the character or value of the bonds he wa
taking. As the bonds are registered Mr. Wo:
leses nothing. The oftieers have good reason

while the cltv of New York, having a popu'2ver

will be reduced. Under the new form of
government the treasurer of the United States
has relieved the treasurer of tin District of a
gieat deal of his work, yet a salary larger than
many 1 nited States officials holding more
laborious and resiwuslble positions receive is
paid him.
It is also said that the salaries of the tax collector.
District attorney and other high functionaries
of the District government are to be
cut down. The point is made that where the
corporations of Washington. ceorgetown and
the outlyiEg territory of the District of Columbia
were under three distinct governments, the
salaries paid to the officers of these three corporations
aggregated a tri'le over fioj.oco.
while under tlie consolidated form of government
that the District now has. the salaries
paid aggregate about $400,000. in the appropi

iiscal j ear ending Jane 30th. 1S80, money will
be gi\ en for specified purposes only. The commissiorers
will not, it is stated, be allowed to
spend the funds as they see tit, but congress
will vote money for such specified improvements
as are nenessary to be made. The senate
committee on the District of Columbia has b?en
informed that during the past summer $2.;,000
was expended In laying a concrete pavement
on a sparsely i>opulated street, which extends
between the residences of two of the commissioners.
it is held that there was no authority
of law for laying this pavement, and 110 specific
appropriation made for the purpose.

commences at Dowiing's auction rooms to-morrow

A Fortune of $12,000,000 may turn upon a
bit of yellow parchment found in a rubbish
heap. A Nova seotla journal says that the
agent employed by the heirs of the Hyde estate
to go to England has written encouraging reports.
He lias met the directors of the Batik of
England, where the money Is deposited. Hyde
was formerly in Annapolis, having been sent
out by the Imperial government. lie had one
daughter born in Nova Scotia. The money in
question was left to her after he died. An intimation
was sent to this country many years
ago asking for the heirs. The family of the
Itydes in tlie 1'nlted States took the matter up
and decided that the real heirs were in Nova
Scotia. The missing link up to a recent period
wasprrof that the original Hyde was the one
who held the Imperial commission and went to
Annapolis. There was no commission or his to
be found. A few years ago an old trunk was
sold at auction and bought by a woman for 2".
cents. She subsequently broke it up for kindling
w ood, and in the lining found a parchment
document, which she deemed so pretty with
the seals attached that she put it, away as
worthy of preservation. Subsequently she
happened to mention the incident to a friend.
It proved to be the missing document.

Mus. McCabe's Death ?Mrs. George XeC.ibe,
iter Ann scott, died in West oxford, Canada, on
the 21 st December, ists. The circumstance attending
her sudden death were such as to ?ive
rhe to the gravest suspicion that she has been
poisoned, and that her own husbmd has b?en
instrumental in her poisoning. The evidence
shows that Mrs. McCabe was a tolerab'y
healthy woman, and not a person likely to die
after a brief illness; that hersymtoms were very
unusual, so much so that two medical men of
standing swear positively that they believe she
died of aconite poison: tnat the husband and

had her will drawn out I;i such a way that all
