' Minnesota, which is now anchored in tho
u North river, nearly opposite the foot of
'? thirty'third street, announced tho appearance
of the United States steamer JJe#pntch,
with tho Presidential party on board. It
included the President, his son, Chester A.
' Arthur, Jr, his liltlo daughter, nod iMiss
* Botts, hid niece, and his Private .Secretary,
Mr. Phillips. They left Washington on
L> tho Despatch at 7;J)0 v. w. on Thurs*
'* day, and readied Quarantine a little
r beforo 12 o'clock noon to-dny. At
1 Quarantine the steamer was hoarded by
health ollieials, to tho great umuseuient of
Uicpllicers of the Despatch, who considered
an inspection unnecessary. Tho Bteamer
then came up the bay. uff'the jtnltery
? she was bailed by the revenue cutter Wm.
, E. Chandler. General Graham, Surveyor
. o( the Port, was on the cutter. HIe; exchanged
greetings with the party on' the
Despatch, but did not board her. She ran
ui> the North llivSr to the foot of Twentytilth
street, where abo anchored about
L r. m. As she passed the Minnesota
tho , hitter's Balute was returned.
* Tho President aud his little party
* took lunch on board their vessel after she
. Liftd reached anchorage. All the food hail
t been provided before tho Despatch left
Washington by the President, there being
2 no Congressional appropriation for the exs
penses of the trip. It is the tirst time that
r a President has come from Washington to
g New York by the sea route. It instated
that this route* was chosen by Mr. Arthur iu
15 order to avoid annoying attentions. Thu
1 trip was also notable" from tho fact that it
. was the lint time that any President sailed
A under a special Hag.
The Despatch made her voyage to her
' place of anchorage living tho new Preaiden,
tial flag introduced by Secretary Chandler.
* 3t is plain bunting with thirteen stars sur*
rounding the arms of the "United States,
| and was hauled down when the President
j left the shin, and only tho National..banner
floated at the mast head. About 2:801?. m. .
, tho President and his party left the
[ despatch on a twelve-oared barge, landing
at the foot of Twenty-third street. A steam
launch followed the party with "the bag.
gage. Two carriages were waiting by previons
arrangement at tiie pier. They car
, rieu tne party, excepting Mr. Phillips, tip
j to Mr."* Arthur's house, 123 Lexington
( avenue. Tho President looked ' very
. well, his Lice having a good color,
and his figure showing no re!
cent loss of liesh. lie was dressed
j in a suit of gray cloth, wearing a frock
^ coat, his gray, high hat being hound with ,
black. IsTo personal or political friends re,
ceived him when he landed, nor when he
~ reached his home. The voyage of about
forty hours was not attended by any incident,
and*tl?e arrival of the President was
as quiet and unostentatious as was his departure
from Washington. Pleasant
weather was enjoyed throughout tho trip.
The President Bpent a .quiet day after
" his arrival home, lie received no callers
- either in the afternoon or evening. It was
i generally understood among his friends
that he desired u brief interval of Test, and
this, together with tho fact that most of
0 them were out of town, gave him a relief
0 from his usual visitors.

t Tho proprietor posted the following notice:
e "I will close this hotel on Monduy, sure;"

friends of the sick, persons say tbey will

but not tlie amount demanded.
Corey says ho would shut up the entire
house to-morrow and prosecute any one
ie who broke into if. Ho could not afford
112 to have the house shut up at this season of
the year. If the two ill persons were re,
moved at once he thought lie could reopen

(1 of the season. If the patients were kept in

And we arraign the Republican jmrty for CQI

in the expenditure of the public money."

M. II. Dent ollered tho following as' an
additional resolution: r!U
"Jtmlvcd, Thatour representative in Con- : *
gress, for voting for thu passago of tiio so- !c^
called Kiver and Harbor bill over the "[J
President's veto, deserves a hearty rebuke .e
[it tho hands of his constituents." J}0'
This produced a sensation, and tho moat ,
lnli.ni.,1 11,mt I (1?
iii a realiy eloquent ami highly impass- ,,,
ioned speech, advocated the adoption of .
his resolution. ilo declared he could not
come out and rebuke the S'alary Grab, the
Credit Mobilier, or the Star Kouto steal, .
unless ho first cleared his skirts of that *
greatest of all steals, the River mid Harbor .,
"divide." llospoko at yreat length and . .
held tho attention of the convention ,.
throughout, saying that he hoped that this
convention would put its veto alongside of
tho President's. Dent was loudly cheered 1
and frequently applauded; and so evident Coi
was it that he had made a considerable ticl
impression, that the J logo followers put L'rt
forward their biggest gun, Sain Woods, let.'
who hoped that tho passions of yesterday fuel
after a night's rest had subsided, and that Wc
this ''almost angry convention" would Ion
meet this morning "in a good humor. Jle sev
characterized Dent's resolution as an apple ouc
of discord, and appealed for harmony.
LUCAS *MAKKS AN OFFEK, JIM
At this juncture, Lucas, who had during s],c
the entire Convention,-sat among the dele- [he
gates from his own county, got up and said [joi
ho had a proposition ,to rwiko to 'J'
the Convention. It was, ho do- JU'f
dared, in the interests of harmony, bei
lie would withdraw if lloge would. ?f1
This was met with a storm of "noes;" u.rc
Sprigg opposed consideration of 4he prop- 8l0:
osition, and declared that either lloge or
Lucas would be elected whichever was ]
nominated. Dent replied to Woods' re- coi:
marks against his resolution with evident Mi
effect, and this brought Prosecuting Attor- clu
ney Daily, of Keyser, to his feet. Daily pnl
said that this very proposition was before it.
the Committee on Resolutions and was re- vot
jected; that it had come from tho Lucas side ma
of the house, which opposedputtmgany thing ties
in the platform about the tarill' arid rev- M.
euue, because the Democrats were divided gro
on the subject, and it would uot, therefore, nui
be expedient to make a deliverance on it. his
Daily declared that it was Democratic sti^
votes that passed' the bill over the President's
veto, ami the Democratic party was
as much divided on the subject of appro- 1

The indifference of the American Consul
here, and the fact that no protest against

much unfavorable comment.

anil brutal murder occurred tbU morning
or during last night, in tho northwestern
I part ot the city, Aloxaudur Wilbur, a
j German saloon keeper, his wlfo and his
I little son, seven years old, wero found mnr?
jdered in their house. The father and
mother in their bud and the boy in tho
I adjoining room. They wero evident I v
killed while attempting escape. Tho head*
of nil Uirco were crushed withalmtcliotnnd
their throats cut ami mutinied in a most
brutal manner. An infant of six months
old was found, unharmed in its crib.smiling
and crowing and unconscious of its bereavement.
The most intense excitement
prevails, ond vigorous efforts tiro being
rnndo to discover tho perpetrator or porpotrators
ol tho fiendish Hct, The furniture
on tho premises was scattered and thrown
nbont.promispuously. Twq drawers of a
bureau wero drawn out, while tho
middle ono was found locked, and
It contained $50 50. It is not
believed the murderer org murderers got .
anything of value, if that was tho objec?.
Geo. Lenhnrt, Chas. \\\ Carter, Phil
Voll and a disreputable young matt named
Jo Bird fiave been arrested on suspicion.
About six years ago a man named Krugg
was murdered on tho premises by a nogress
named Leroy. Lenlmrt married his
widow and wanted to occupy the premises,
but "Wilber had a long lease on tho house
and Leuhurt has been heard to threaten
to kill Wilberif hedid not vacate. Carter
mid Voll wero found leaving tho city soon
after tho murder was*discovered, and Uiid "V
was arrowed on general principles. Suspicion
points most strongly to I^jnliart,who
stoutly denies his guilt. The coroner has
been investigating the horror, but has not
returned a verdict.

laborer, whose place ot residenco is No.
10 Jackson street, in tho southern part ot
.lie city, was killed about 10 o'clock tliis
evening by his stepson,a boyof eighteen. It
jeenis that Metzgar and Wagner wero playing
a game of cards, when some dispute
\rose,resulting in MeUyar putting Wagner
Dut of tho house. Wagner returned 111 a
few minutes with a dirk-knife, which ho
plunged into Metzgar's heart, severing it
tn twain.
After committing the murder, "Wagner
made his escape. Tho police were notified
and arrested Geerge Harmon, who furnished
the kuife with which tho bloody deed
was done. Young Wagner ran away, but
Bhortly afterwards returned, anil was arrested.
lie Was taken to the city prison
and searched, but nothing was found on
his person which had been used by him in
committing the deed. In fact, lie denies ^
that ho cut his father. When asked why
he did not *uso his own knife, he said ha
did not know he had one, and that ho gave
the knife he got from the Harmon boy to
his father, and then he started to run,
when his step-father kicked liim in tho
backhand the accused said that tho knife
came between him and the Harmon boy
as they were running.
Tho prisoner, when brought out of tho
cell to-night, was under the influence of
liquor. The youngest son, Aged ten years,
said that his brother Charles did the cutting
and tliat he saw him ilo it Strange
as it may appear, there is not a drop of
blood on the accused's 'clothes or person,
lint Iliu liiftllin^a linn.l oml
ered with the blood of the murdered man.
The Coroner visited the; house, hut held
no inquest to-night on account of his inability
to understand the personB present;
as they were Germans, lie will hold au
inquest to-morrow, when the children can
all be found, as they speak English.
The whole family have been in the habit
of drinking, and tho murder was caused by
the free use of liquor.
