The judgments in the cases of this character provided for com Riitment to jail in default of payment of the line - and until security be given "for good be havior." THE RECORD OF THE FIRST XfRDEB case is found under the date of March 30, 1902. the defendant being James Macgirck, whose name appears the previous year, when he was recognized for liis good behavior. The verdict "guiitv" is written in a large running hand, as also the judgment: "To return to the jail from whence he came, and from thence to the place of execution, and there to be hanged bv the neck till dead." A habeas corpus case was before the court August 2. the petitioner being Isaac Johnson, a colored man. confined in jail presumably on the theory that he was a slave. He made oath that he was "a free man of color," and was dis charged from custody.

Wilson Bryan refused to be sworn as a juror, avowing that he was a Meth odist. end ?as committed to the custody of the marshal. Three jurors were fined 415rach for escaping from tlie jury-room before finuing a verdict. It is interesting to note some of the bills which are spread at length on the minutes. '1 wo dollars per day is the charge for a room for the grand jury at Steeles' hotel. The bills of tlie Unite d States to James Kenner. jailor of Washington county, charge 20cents per day for each prisoner committe d by the court for fiue and costs, and that running from Febiu arv 1. lsol. to August 10, foots up ?100.10. THE COCRT HAD Xl'CH LAKOER POWER* than the present court, for the records show that they appointed notaries and constables, licensed keepers of ferriea. keepers of ordi naries. retail-rs. hawkers, and peddlers. The minutes of the July term. ltftH. show that thir ty -eight keeper* of ordinaries, twenty-OM re tailers. and mx keepers of ferries were author ised. The popularity of horse-racing .* seen in the fact that licences were granted to twen ty-four persons to sell on the rare ground in November. 1804. From January. 1806. to April. 1806. the im position of "burning in tue brawn of the thumb of the left hand'' does not appear, but whipping was continued, and it was always coupled with a fine. The minutes about this time, January. 1*06. show that a rule was laid against Robert W. Peacock, a member of the bar, to show why he should not be disbarred. On the 22J he wit* convicted on one indictment and wntonced to three year* at hard labor; ou the 28th he was convicted ou another and sen tenced to pay a fine of *250 nnd three months imprisonment, and on February 1st he pleaded guilty to a third indictment and was sentenced to two years' imprisonment at hard labor.

On one of the chimneys, up to a few years ago, was the fol lowing inscription in iron letters: ? C. L. 1716.' Recently the letters have fallen, but the date is as clear as it was one hundred and fortv three years ago. At this old mansion a grand b.di was given by Mr. Lowndes to the officers Vr-iV nch cavalry on their return from lorktown, and tra.imon says the old house held nigh carnival on that occasion.

The decorators Lave just begun their work of transforming the great white court of the l>ension office into a beautiful ball room, and bunting, shields, gold, silver, pennants, por traits, designs, and other materials to be used in the operation lie ail around on the tiled floor, while the sound of hammers makes ! merry music. The decorations, as planned by the contractor. Mr. F. Aldridge, of Brooklyn, promise to be about as magnificent as anv ever seen in this country. The accompanying pic ture gives a representation of the Pension hall as it will appear when decorated. THE GRAND COURT. The hall affords a good field for the arrange ment of colors, it being without question the largest construction of the kind on this hemis phere and, barring churches and cathedrals, lias few. if any. equals in the world in floor and balcony area and height. Its immense size may be realized by a few figures. The clear length is 816 feet, the width lie feet and the m ight t? the surmounting roof 14'J feet. The hall is broken by two screens of four immense pillars ? feet in diameter or over 18 feet in cir cumference at the base. 5 feet at the top and i.- if g"' ?nrn?onnted by artistic arches which rapport the roof. These screens greatlv enhance the superb architectural features of the hall and give the effects of dimensions horizontal and vertical which otherwise would not be so impressive. i- ? area ?f, the rnarbl? tessellated floor is 31.000 square feet, or very nearlv an acre. On the four sides of the floor extends an arcaded corridor 12 feet wiue and 20 feet high, formed of <6 iron Corinthian columns 13 feet (i inches high, with a range of elevation sur mounting arches G feet 6 inches around the en tire interior and supporting a balcony of the same dimensions, the entire circuit of the I 10 Io"S ftud 28 fe** 1'iRh. and I tippojting on r* marbleued columns a sur mounted bolus traded promenade or parapet of the dimensions of the balcony and 43 feet from the marble pavement below. On this sur mounting parapet, at intervals over the col umns, are large vases for floral display. THE BALCONIES. The balcony and surrounding parapet are reached by brick steps 12 feet long, laid on arches and ascending from each gate. When bWB??h ?n occasion df national festivity, like the coming ball, the arched balconies aiid d in hunting and embroidered tapestries representing all the states of the L nioii unci nations of the globe pendant from nl'n^'^i^' altitude of ^ the roof, nearlv 150 feet imT.i f- r' streamers, vases filled with exotics crowning the parapet and groun liigs of tropical foliage surrounding the bases of the mighty Corinthian columns and filling grand. ipaCe" ?f tL? corridors- ^ ?""e is The capacity of the hall is equal to the de mands of an almost unlimited throng.

It may be expected that this room will present a picture never before excelled ? u ' country for beauty and elegance. A thousand incandescent lights flood the building wtth soft ened radiance. Choice flowers perfume the stmt? 1 d,ellght,.the eye' whi,e th'' "'ore sub stantial decorations art such as to make the im mense hall a thing of beauty. THE PAOODA. The most conspicuous and prominent feature of the interior scene will be the two-story Jap anese pagoda that is now being finished. It is m the center of tlio building, built over and around the fountain, that on ordinary occa sions lends its babbling to the noise of scratch ing of thousands of pens as thev fly in their missions of pension-giving or pension-refusing The lower part of the pagoda is a grotto built of rocks and ferns around the fountain- a Dic turesque retreat for the dancers, where thev ca? rest, surrounded by the glamour of flowers, soft lights and running water. The second floor will accommodate the band?one hundred performers?who will play the dancing music Above them, on the third gallery, wilf be sta tioned the Marine band, who are to conduct the promenade concert. The whole structure will be made gay with streamers of buntinir draperies of flags and brilliant with electric lights. It will be without doubt the most tak ing thing in the whole plan of the decoration, and will break the immense space of the floor with good effect; Portraits of the new President and Vice President will be placed on the front, and run ning entirely around the structure. Just above the first story, will be a line of shields, each bearing the name of a state or a territory. Gilt and the glitter of the gas jets will reveal the colors of the flag: On the top of the pagoda ta? WOr? ?'ConHJ;itu,ion" W1? blaze forth in letters of fire. The eight columns lifting the dome eighty feet from the ground are twined with heavy laurel garlands interspersed with palm leaves. decorations. For the decorations of the ball-room are promised a massing of color, a glitter of armor, a drapery of flags and the painted gorgeousnessof the national and state coat-of-arms. Their back ground will be the dead white walls of the vet unfrescoed interior of the big hall. The scheme of decoration will be to drape the gal ery all around with flags and garland with kurel, spruce and pine the four big columns which divide the space into three great sec ! tions. Bunting will be suspended from the ceil ing, running in all directions, and forming an in tricate mass of brilliant colors. In the decora tions the American colors will bo the prevailing feature. Silk flags, satin bunting, giltand silver ornaments will be used. The fronts of the three galleries which completely encircle the ha}}, one above thoi other, will be festooned with flags and the coata-of-arms of the states. 2?iEiaLm,!!1,n* )ch support the roof of the hall, will be almost hidden by projecting flags Iheir Uses will have plush dados, eight feet in height, with shields above them. u f.rVnUof the galleries running all round I*re f?,tooned with American flags, and in the spaces between are alternately suits ^ .fik i ver"pl#te,iamor mooted with a silk plush backing, and large coata-of-arms, painted in oil. of all the states and nation* sur mounted by carved and gilded eagles over the states and crowns or other national r.rf/? h "?????? draped with appro priate flags of silk. Garlands of laurel and front? * ,nl,diung effect twined along the k decorations. Each one of the tioual banner oI saUn with the coat-of-arms ENAUGURAL BALL-I embroidered upon it. Twenty calcium lights are to be placed in tlie top gallery nnd 2.000 in candeeceut electric lights along the sid^s of the bull-room. The tlor.il decorations are to be on a scale never before attempted. 'I ho same New York florist who furnished flowers for 1 ?resident Cleveland's inauguration will supply them on this occasion. It will take 5.000 yards of laurel festoons, 6 inches thick, to cover ihe ceiling. F.LAB0HA7E FLORAL DESIOSS. Suspended from the lower gallery is a series of panels, 5 feet by 10 feet, made entirely of choice flowers, a panel being devoted to each I department of state, upon which is wrought, in half relief, some suitable device. The Navy I department bears upon a floral background a man-of-war; th? Department of the Interior, a pioneer scene representing a log cabin, a newly felled tree, a plow nnd a sheaf of grain; the Pout-Office department, a mail-bag and nn en velope dtilv stamped, postmarked, and ad dressed in a flowing hand to '?Benjamin Harri son, Washington, I). C." Over each panel is 1 the name of the department it symbolizes and a quill of flowers. About the upper gallery are vases alternating with the columns, filled with rare palms. When Gen. Harrison and Vice-President Morton enter the hull at the west end they will pass under a floral ball 15 feet in diameter. At an opportune time a string will be pulled nnd the floral ball will open and a shower of cut flowers will d< scend upon the presidential party. The same manipulation will release an entire flock of imprisoned canary birds and paroquets who will mingle their songs and voices with the exclamations of joyful delight from the assembled thousands. When the President and attendants reach the other eud of the hall another floral ball exactly like the first will open and flowers and canary birds in great number will enliven the scene. Suspended from the center of the dome will be an immense floral ship of state?r. three master and thirty feet long, which can be seen in the picture printed above. Immense oil portraits of President Harrison and Vice-President Morton, each fifteen feet high, mounted with American flags on plush and gold frames, are conspicuous features. The offices of the conim.ssioner of pensions, elaborately furnished and decorated, will be used by the Presidential party as reception rooms." There are spacious dressing. e'loaV, supper, and receution rooms on the lirst floor, and broad iron stairways and tiled galleries Tor the immense throng who only come to look on. THE DANCE MUSIC. But for those who come to dance?and there wiii be many?there will be music of the best quality. The music of the evening will be oft*o kinds, one furnished by the U. S. Marine band, directed by Prof. John Philip Sousa. assisted by Salvato're Petrola, and the other by Beck's orchestra of 100 pieces, conducted by Hinion Husslerund J. O. S. Beck.

Of course the President and Mrs. Harrison will be the centers of attraction, and after them the Vice-President and Mrs. Morton, and Mr. and Mrs. Cleveland (who will then be en titled to that form of address). They will be besieged with people from the moment they emerge from their cloak-rooms until they enter their carriages early next morning. People who want to shuke the hand of the new Presi dent, to greet him and offer their congratula tions upon the happy events of the day, and people who want to give a parting word to the retiring executive and his beatitiful wife. It will be a continual round of hand-shaking and little impromptu speeches, while the band will be playing and black-coated men and women, in enchanting costumes, will whirl over the smooth marble tiles in the mazes of the dance. The scene from the galleries will be one of the greatest animation and beauty. Every ele ment of harmony will be there, coloring, light, music, beauty, delicious odors, a combination never to be lorgotten. THE SUPPER. But dancing and talking and handshaking make most folk hungry, especially after such a fatiguing day as the 4th of March happens to be every fourth year. For such there will be supper rooms, tables laden with all that the most particular palate could demand. All the delicacies that go to make up a sumptuous buffet supper will be provided. It will be a stand-up. take-wliat-you-want sort of supper, for it would be utterly impossible to provide chairs for the five or six thousand people who mav decide to partake. A temporary kitchen lias been erected on the north side of the building, but most of the stuff will be brought here cooked and will only need the usual pantry attention to serve. The supper rooms will be in the offices on the north side, where con venient access to the kitchen and china rooms can be had. A long buffet will extend through all the dif ferent apartments parallel with the north wall and about four feet from it Behind this will stand a corps of attendants, whoso duty will be simply to carry on the communication be tween the supper room and the kitchen. On the other side will be a corps of waiters to serve the guests. The supper fee is to be $1, and the following is the bill of fare: Blue Points on icc. Hot?Bouillon, in cups; steamed ognptM** la poulctte, chicken croquettes, iimu thiuafl Ml|t a la Keice; terrapin. Philadelphia style.

Sweets?Assorted ice cream, orange water ice. lionian punch. oyraTnid of Nougat Be naissance, bts-uivc ol' bon-bons, republienn: pavillion. rustic, assorted fancy cakes, des serts. coffee. This important part of the r.rrnngementa has been entrusted to Mr. George C. Boldt. the proprietor of the hotelBellevue, Philadelphia, where the renowned dinner, of the far-famed Clover club have beeV held for several years. For the last inauguration there were provided 1,000 quarts of ice cream. 500 quarts of water ices, 20C roast turkeys, 500 boiled turkeys, 100 hams. 150 tongues, id sets roast beef, 2 barrels chicken salad. 6,000 rolls. 1.000 pounds of but ter and 150 loaves of bread, while of such dainties as pate de foie gras. consomme, salmon and bass, big quantities were on hand. Mr. Harrison will probably follow the exam ple ot Mr. Cleveland and decline the ccmpli me.it of a separate table. Presidents lire not t hungry on these occasions. Mr. Cleveland sent the committee word upon his inauguration that for all he would eat at the ball there was no use in going to the trouble of a set supper for him. A!1 himself or any of his party dulnhut uight was to promenade in the direction of the supper-room without entering its precincts. RILES For. THE BALL. The executive committee in charge of inaug uration affairs has issued a code of laws for use and application at the ball. They first an nounce that the entrances will be at the F. G, and 5th streets doors; no smoking will be al : lowed in any part of the building; persons once entering must remain until tuev depart for good and all, for there will be no return-checks issued. Indeed, to break off rather abruptly from the code, there will be little or no neces sity for a person's leaving temporarily, for pro vision has been made to supply almost every want that a man could possibly have on such an occasion?barber shop, boot-blacks, tele graph ollice, police station, messenger boys. A BUREAU OF INFORMATION. A bureau of information will be established in one of the rooms on the first floor, the second door east of the F-street entrance, where one or more members of the committee will be stationed, transformed by facts into human encyclopedias, ready to give answer to all possible*questions, to receive articles found in the building, and to give aid to those who may report losses. There will be no hats, bon nets. overcoats, or cloaks allowed to be worn on the ball-room floor, nor any canes or umbrellas to be carried, for ample cloak room facilities will be provided, aud ushers will be stationed at the doors to direct new-comers to their appropriate apartments. There will be no charge in the cloak-rooms. No persons will be allowed to stand on the floors of the dancing spaces during the dancing. The executive committee will occupy rooms at the southeast corner of the building. This room will be connected by electric signals with the entrances to the building: also by \ telephone with the principal rooms. The chairman. A. T. Britton, and in his absence, J the secretaries of the committee, H. L. I tjwords anil Frtd. Brackett. will have authority. | and should be called upon to settle any dispute that may arise as to admission to the building | or to any part thereof, aud to determine anv I question pertaining to the management, ex j cept such matters as are under control of the chairmen of the various subcommittees. All I matters connected with dancing and prome nade will be under control of Dr. M. L. ltuth. and those pertaining to the comfort of the guests under control of Jas. E. Bell. The re ception of the President and other guests will be under the control of J. K. MeCammon. Tho committeemen will we%r badges of red. white, and blue, with diagonal stripes, as fol lows: Executive, royal purple; reception, black; floor and promenade, white; press, car dinal; banquet, dark blue; carriages, pink; music, olive; comfort at ball-room, dark brown; ball-room dress, light brown. THE CARRIAGE REGULATIONS. One of the greatest difficulties confront com mittees arrangingjthe details of large balls is the solution of the carriage problem. If there are many guests the trouble of handling a long line of "men, coaches, and horses becomes a serious obstacle to success, and it requires a I man of more than the ordinary allowance of patience and executive ability to see that things go smoothly and that guests do not get into the wrong carriage and are whisked off to strange doors. But on this occasion, with the enor mous attendance it is expected that tlie arrival and departure of persons will be accomplished without the least coufusion or dissatisfaction. To accomplish this end a novel scheme has been devised. In the first place the pocket of the ball-goer has been protected by means of a schedule of rates from which there can be no appeal. Hansom cabs will cost *3 each for the evening, coupes $4 each, herdic cabs *5 each, and two-horse conveyances according to special agreement, not exceeding 810. No owner or driver of such vehicles shall, tinder penalty of attention from the police, refuse to carry a passenger at the schedule rates, nor when en gaged. take up an additional passenger with out the consent of the one who first engaged him. All vehicles are to approach the pension of fice from 7th street, herilics, cabs ahd one horse coupes, entering on F street, aud fol lowing the south side of that street to the en trance of the pension office, making their exit on 4tU street to the south. All public carriages will approach the pension office from 7th street, by way of G street, following the north side of G street to entrance of pension building, and make their exit on 4th street to the north; the President's carriage, those of the diplomatic corps, and all private carriages will enter on F street, follow north side, turn into 5th street, and deposit their passengers at 5th street en trance, then turn intoG street and follow south side to 7th street, then to space on G street, between 7th and Oth streets, also to 8th street above G, where they may park. CA1AASQ THE PRIVATE CARRIAGES. This immense line of private carriages will render the ordinary means of calling them al most impracticable,|and to facilitate^matters a great stereopticon screen will be erected on tho northwest corner of the pension building, and when a party desires to return home he will give or send his number?given to both him and his driver upon arrival?to the lantern operator, who will throw the figures on the screen, thus sending an instantaneous message along the line that a certain carriage is wanted. There will be no yelling of names or numbers, no mispronunciation and misunderstandings and consequent mistakes, and in a very few minutes the carriage will be at the door ready for its load. II the screen cannot be seen in any part of the line messengers will be stationed at "the points where a view is obtainable to an nounce the numbers as they appear. The com mittee have also arranged that persons holding a ticket for a hired cab, herdic, or carriage will have the privilege, when leaving the pen sion office, of taking and Occupy mf any one vehicle of the kind named upon their tickets, such persons not being required to await tho arrival at the pension office entrance of the particular vehicle in which they came to the building. AU persons will be expected to make their exit through the same door that they enter. Those in pubUc carriages wiu leave by the north door, and those in .public oahe or loupes by the south exit.

In these days of agnostic ism and atheism a religious pilgrimage of thou sands of miles is something of a curiosity, to say the least; and when 100 men and women journey from busy America to place a silken banner upon the tomb of the Saviour in far away l'al? stone. tlie? event is one worthy of com memoration iu history as well as of current comment. Among tho many good Catholics who sailed yesterday as pilgrim* were bishops, priest*, laymen and their wives, and even a score of "comely maidens. The pilgrims will larrv a while at Rome on the way, and thence proceed as expeditiously as possible to Jeru salem, where they will remain several weeks. Then the most enthusiastically religious of the party will make a thorough exploration of Pal estine. the Holy Land, while the more worldly inclined will return by way of beautiful Venice, gay Paris, r.nd other resorts favored by ordi-j nary European travelers. One feels like rhap sodizing a little over this first American pil grimage to the Holy Land, but the one deter rent against the tine religious and poetic phrases of the modern crusade is the fact that the ? hale scheme is one of the famous Cook's "personally conducted tours." which are essentially savory of dollars aud cents and advertising. Fancy Ricliard Cumr de Leon and Godfrey de Bouillon undertaking the pilgrimages of other ages under the "personally conducted" cbaperonage and guidance of Cook's tourist establishment. ? ? ? Two Wall street brokers who drive every afternoon on the Boulevards have just intro duced the latest tiling in winter wear ironi Lnndon. I was at Gabe Case's road house the other afternoon when they pulled up at the hostler's horse-block in great style aud alighted to discuss something hot with other horsenieu iu the hostelry's bar-room. The outer a raps of these gentlemen made a sensation when they entered. Tho garment is a long ulster, with a hood and cape, and reaches to the ankles. When its wearer has it arranged for walking on the street it is iu appearance a stylisli-lookilqi heavy top-coat, but when ar ranged for driving or riding it is the most com ical garment ever seen ouUide of the circus ring. Its skirt, very long, is iu three pieces. When its owner prepares for u drive he fastens each of the side pieces aronnd his respective legs, forming a sort of extra pair of a arm but badly-titting trousers. The middle piece of the skirt is brought up between the legs and fastened in front, and the effect is very ludi crous. however the arrangement may contri bute to its wearer's comfort. The gibes.hnrled at these two introducers of s new fashion by their friends in Case's hotel wer* sarcastic, humorous and hilarious, and before the brokers resumed their drive a bet of $50 had been made that they would not dare walk down Broadway from the post-office to Trinitv church at noon on a day to be determined with the new rig arranged for driving. ?*? Unpremeditated dishonesty exists among a certain class of people who never really in tended to do wroDg. but who were led into it by their own Weak natures, incapable of resist ing temptation. Such a nature is that of Prince Georges Eristoff de Gonrie. the Russian noble man (funny word, that nobleman, ell?) who was arrested this week fftr swindling a merchant out of the price of a sealskin overcoat, some i F300 I believe. I know something about the ; I prince, who really is a prince by birth, being the soa of Prince David Eristoff de l'oti in <au- j casus, and I don't believe lie ever went into a premeditated, cold-blooded scheme tor sw;ud- | ling in his life, although he has cut np some very pretty capers that smack of crookedness iu more countries thau one. The trouble a itli Prince Georges is that he was brought up j wrong. He was bred an aristocrat of most lux- | urious tastes, and when he reached his majority | he had no more idea of the value of money I than the $5,000 prize setter has over at the dog show. If you had told him there were ! whole families who lived on fifty kopecks a dav he wouldn't have believed you. He had no notion that money was earned. He onlv knew that it was spei.f. It was very silly of the prince's father to brin'j him up in tl'iis way. but he did. and when Georges' tastes became" extraordinarily costly the old gentleman had to hustle sometimes to raise the menev to p&y for tliem. But he hus tled, raised it somehow, and said nothing. When the prince was in Berlin eight years ago he needed money badly. His father promised to send it in a week or so. but Prince Georges wanted it immediately. He hadn't any idea ! that his father would be incouvc nienced to raise it, so he conceived the bright idea of buying 14.000 marks' worth of jewelrv " on his credit, which was good, nnd then selling it for cash, by which financial operation he was able to supply his immediate necessities. He promised, in good faith, to pay for the jewelry in a fortnight, when his re mittauces should come. But in a fortnight his remittances did not materialize, and Prince I Georges was clapped into jail, where he stayed a month, being released after his father had paid for the jewelry. Iu Paris, in 1883. the prince did the same thing over again, and again served a term in prison. '#hen in Lon don, in 1885, hourly expecting money from his father, he purloined tli* gold cigar-case of his friend, the MarqOis do Lcnville. pawned it for j?8, and was caught at it. The marquis had him arrested, but when Prince Georges ex plained things tho marquis withdrew the charge, got his own cigar-case out of hock and forgave the culprit. Last September this vic tim of circumstances aud a foolish father came to New York. For awhile he was regularly supplied with aAincome by his father, and he ha* lived in a style befitting his rank and his breeding in nice apartments on 5th avenue, taking his meals at tne Hotel Brunswick. He has been more or lew lionized by society, aud young fellows about town have found him sim E" ly charming. Some time during last Dccem er the prinn*'? regular remittance from home did not come. He had spent nearly all his , ready money, What was he to do? What i would yon or any man have done under the circumstances? You would have done just as Prince George (lid, borrow of yonr friends. They wero perfectly willing to lend, and tho prince had no notion of swindling them. A* soon as his remittance came he would pay np. of course. He grumbled a little that has father should be so thoughtless as to delay hi* allowance, bat as hi* father had never hinted at financial embarrassment the prince, of coarse, never suspected it Meantime he bought a nice sealskin coat of a farrier for (>500, aud agreed to pay for it on February 15 or return the coat. When Febru ary 14 came around he hadn't as y?t heard from his father, but he wanted to keep the coat. So he pawned it (.temporarily, a* he thought) for (100. and was trying to raise tho other 9400 from hi* friends and by pawning all hi* costly trinkets, when his usual fate pursued him, ami on Wednesday the furrier had him arrested for fraud. The newspapers have seized upon the story of "A rriace ia a Cell with avidity, and coluana have been printed and eagt /ly devoured concerning the "titled adventurer." But this poor prince is no ad venturer, a* the term is generally understood. He is at heart a* *oaest a man a* you or I? honester. like enoogh; be is simply the victim of circumstances over whtoh he has no control.
