New Orleans papers are filled with a

Mr. Walsh opened the correspondence
j by a challenge to Governor Warmoth,
and the latter replied. He miscon

leave the question of veracity, on which
the whole trouble hangs, to the arbi
tration of five gentlemen, two to be se

Secretary Belknap this morning had
a consultation with Acting Secretary
Uartley and Second Comptroller Broad
head, on the subject of introducing in
the strictest manner the preservation
of the regulations of the government for
disbursing of finance. The Hodge de
falcation was the basis of the argument.
The details of the duties of disbursing
officers were thoroughly discussed.
Neither of the above officials
would give the slightest information as
to the result of the conference, but it
has tianspired that a thorough over
hauling of all the disbursing officers'
accounts in the Paymaster's Depart
ment will be made without delay, and
such precautions taken as will hereafter
preveut the issue of money by govern
ment officials. A comparison of re
ports of disbursing by the Paymaster
General and the Treasurer will hereafter
be made.
A Jlyitery.
A negro was found hanging from a
tree in the woods at Georgetown to-day.
Judging from appearances the body had
been hanging for several days, possibly
for weeks. Most of the flesh had fallen
from his body. The bones of his arms
and legs were found underneath him,
looking as if the flesh had been torn
from them by anatomists, and holes
were picked in the sknll, as though
made by instruments. The physician
who madS the post mortem examina
tion expressed the opinion that the
negro had been foully dealt with.
Yellow Fever.

Tbe Hodge Defalcation.
It id altogether likely that the Hodge
defalcation will have a Congressional
investigation. The Pay Department*
alleges that the performance of certify
ing accounts, if attended to b y the
Treasury Department, would have dis
covered the irregularities sooner; and
the Treasury Department reports that
the action referred to would not have
prevented peculations, and explains how
they could have been carried 011 in
spite of all the guards which the
Pay Department would have. It infers
that an investigation by a committee of
Congress would not bring back the half
aiillion of dollars lost, but it might fur
.nish a basis for legislation which will
make it impossible tor any one to again
I contiuue in the practice of fraud for
-four years, without detection.

Great Excitement in the City
The Connolly Case.
New York, September 18. ? Several
facts developed in connection with the
appointment of Mr. Green as Deputy
Comptroller, has led to the belief, ex
pressed in many places yesterday, that
it was brought about by the active
agency of the Democratic Central com
mittee. The new situation was gener
ally accepted, in view of these facts, as
the beginning of active operations by
the State Central Democratic commit
tee against the ring, or at least that
part of it which hoped to save itself by
sacrificing Connolly.
Announcement of the Appointment
of George B. Mel'l?li?n.
The announcement of the removal of
Connolly and the appointment of Gen.
Geo. B. McClellan as head of the finance
department, was made this morning by
Mayor Ilall.
More Trouble.
This morning, when Mr. Green of
fered his oath of office, as Deputy
Comptroller, he received a written
message from the Mayor's principal
clerk, which he threw disdainfully to
the floor.
It is rumored that an application
will be made to Judge Barnard for a
quo warranto to oust Connolly and Green
from the office, and for an injunction
against either of their ageuts continu
ing to exercise the (unctions of the
offices now occupied by them.
Sfet'lellnn Silent.
No reply has as yet been promulgated |
from General McClellan to Mayor
Hall's offer of the Comptrollership. It
is generally believed he will not accept.
Andrew H. Green, the new deputy, had
a large force of watchmen on guard in
the Comptroller's office last night.
There are rumors of a conflict between
the factions, should General McClellan,
or anybody else, accept the Comptrol
lership tendered by Mayor Hall. In
caseot any attempt to obtain possession
of the office, it is thought that the
Mayor will have the best of it, as he is
Police Commissioner, and a majority of
the police are under his influence.
The Comptroller has sent the follow- J
ing letter to the Mayor this afternoon : ?
Hon. A. Oakey Hall, Mayor.
Dear Sir: I have read in the morn
ing papers, your letter of this date, and
beg leave thus promptly to inform you
that, as advised, I have not, either in
fact or equivalent, resigned the office of
Comptroller of the City of New York.
I deny the authority of law in the
Mayor to exercise the power attempted I
by vour favor and, in partial support of
the denial, quote the words of your
former communication, "The Mayor
cannot suspend any Head of Depart
ments, not even pending an investiga
tion." My previously announced deter
mination not to retire from my official
position is still unchanged, and 1 ask
the support of the supreme power, the
public sentiment of the citizens of New
York city and the State. Very respect
fully your obedient servant,
Richard B. Connolly-,
The chief clerk in the Mayor's office
has sent the following note to all the |
departments this afternoon:
* 1)kar Sir : ? I am directed to inform
you that the Mayor does not recognize
"Richard B. Connolly as Comptroller,
nor Andrew H. Green as Deputy Comp
f Signed] Chas. 0. Jolink,
Chief Clerk.
Excitement over Green's Appoint*
The appointment of Green by Con
nolly as Deputy Cemptroller, has given
rise to a good deal of excitement.
Connolly and Green were closeted to
gether from 9 o'clock in the morning
to a late hour in the afternoon, and
surmises regarding their proper course
were numerous, and rumors of various
characters were floating about. It
was stated that the committee of Sev
enty had taken vigilant measures to
protect Connolly in retaining his office,
this being rendered necessary by the
report that Mayor Hall was about to
call on the police to remove him by
ritlienii' Committee In Soeret Ses
The committee of citizens on the
city accounts held a secret session to
day, and Deputy Comptroller Green
presented them with a number of docu
ments from the city and county bu
During the afternoon Connolly held
a caucus with some of his friends, the
result of which has not transpired, but
it is understood he adheres to his deter
mination to remain in office.
During the afternoon it was rumored
that General McClellaa had accepted
the Comptrollership, and that applica
tion would be made to Judge Btunard
to grant a writ of mandamus compel
ling Connolly to surrender the papers
and books of his office to McCIellan.
A meeting of the committee of Sev
enty was to have been held this after
noon but the members did not appear,
although it waa rumored they were in
session elsewhere.
It is stated that Connolly and Green
intend to remain in the Comptroller's
offios to-night.
Mr. Charles 0' Conor, tl is afternoon,
at the request of Mr. S. J. Tilden, gave
bis written opinion on the legal quea
tions raised by Mayor
letter this morning to Comptroller Con
nolly. The Mayor insists that Connolly,
by the appointment of a deputy to per
form all his duties and exercise all his
powers, really abandons his office. Mr.
(/Conor holds that this appointment is
in strict accordance with law. Hal
insist* that his own right toappomt im
plies and includes the right to remove,
and that he can, therefore, "move Con
nolly at will. O'Conor holds that the
statute confers no rightof removal upon

tion of taking him and his estate to

climate was injuring his health, .and
the want of friendly faces and never
hearing his own tongue spoken, con
tributes to his lunacy. Jarvis and a
constable have entered a protest against
such removal, claiming that his estate
should be placed under the care of his
own relatives, aud that his wife, who
grants the power ot' attorney, is a mere

own jurisdiction. The hearing was
adjourned till to-morrow.
Iuqnent Held.
An inquest was held to-day in the
case of Henry Green and others killed
by the explosion of Union torpedoes in
Beekman street, on Thursday last.
Numerous witnesses were examined,
their testimony chiefly relating to the
details of the explosion. Chief Clark,
of the Board ot Combustibles, testihed
that he had revoked the permit which
had been granted to Goldscmhidt to
sell the Union torpedoes and that five
suits were pending in the Ihird Dis
trict Court against Goldschmidt, fo
selling them. The Jufy J"e"tie^ed
verdict holding Kleber & Goldschm.dt
responsible for the deaths of three per
sons killed and injured by the explosion,

action of the Grand Jurv.

Terrible Accident? A Boat Capwlaed
and Two Person* Browned.
Madison, September 18. ? A terrible
accident occurred here last evening.
Four gentlemen, Hon. Jas. Roa?i, Dr. J.
L. Wilson and Fred. Bellis, of Madison,
and Mr. Knight, of Milwaukee, were
sailing on the lake at Mendota, in the
boatrf'Lady of the Lake." One of the
gentlemen, in furling ose of the sails,
capsized her. They managed to get
on the keel of the boat, but about haif
an hour afterwards a heavy wave struck
her and threw them all into the water,
and Mr. Bellis, who was in an exhaust
ed condition, immediately sunk to rise
no more. The remaining three gentle
men remounted the keel, where they
remained, slowly drifting towards the
Insane Asylum. Shortly after, two
other waves struck the boat and washed
the nearly exhausted men into the
lake. Dr. Wilson, who complained of
being cold, did Dot regain the boat but
sunk. The other two gentlemen suc
ceeded in getting on the keel again
where they remained until daylight,
when a boat from the Asylum took
them ashore, where they were kindly
cared for by Mr. McDill, of the Asylum.
The sad accident has cast a gloom ovei

the road. Reaching Ellis, it was given
to express agent J. A. Harvey, who
Cirried it to his office, in the store of
Hamilton ?fc Harvey, he being one of
that firm. Several persons were pres

made about leaving so much money in
the store. Harvey rolled the package
in a blanket, threw it under the table,
and went home for the night, it then
being about seven o'clock. Harvey
states that after going to bed he thought
that he had teen careless, and started
for the package, but became afraid from
the publicity which had been given the
matter and returned to bed. In the

The highest barometer has extended
eastward over the Middle and Eastern
States but has fallen during the day.
A 6mall area of low pressure has ex
tended over Minnesota and southeast
erly to the northeastern part of Lake
Michigan with wind* circulating in a
small area around it, which amounted
to a northeast gaie during the night on
Lake Superior. Brisk southerly wind*
prevail on Lakes Michigan and Huron,
and light northwestly winds with rising
barometer in the northwest. Clear
weather has prevailed from Maine to
Virginia, andjalso in the Southern and
Gulf States until this afternoon, but |
cloudy weather is now reported with ,
occasional local rains. The barometer j
has risen at the Rocky Mountains and
Pacific station.
Probabilities. ? The barometer will
probably tall very generally on the
lower lakes and Atlantic coast, and the
disturbances on Lake Michigan move
eastward aud extend into the Middle
States on Tuesday. Cloudy weather,
with occasional light rains, is probable
for the Southern and Gulf State?; rising

A Wonderful Story.
Savannah, Ga., September 18 ? A
most wonderful utory is told here of a
startling phenomena in Florida. A
large portion of Orange count? has
changed to a lake, and has engulfed
bouses and people. There were many
witnesses*, one of whom says the first
thing that attracted attention was the
trees moving; first a general rotary mo- |
tion, some sinking gradually out of j
sight, the tops revolving more and more
as they sank and disappeared, the
others following, and as they fell, dash
ing a huge volume of spray up against
the sky; then the whole earth as far as
the eye could reach commenced sink
ing, and its place was supplied by a
sea of waters, rushing, seething and
boiling, with the souod of mighty can
nons, and ever and anon casting to the
sur'ace the roots and tops of mighty
pines and oaks. The country in every
direction is entirely submerged, and ia
now one vast lake. It ia rumored that
the town of Orlando is swallowed up.
and that the whole chain of lakes, from
' Apohka to Conway, are now united
1 and form an immense inland sea. The
i people are flying terror stricken from
the scene of the disaster.

Tuk total of dry goods landed al
New York in the month of August wa*
nearly twenty millions, against fourteen
millions lor the corresponding period
of last vear. Since the beginning of
the current calendar year the imports
have reached the enormous amount of
$$7,676,708 against $72,164,835 in cot
responding time last year? showing a
gain of over twenty-five and a half
millions of dollars, bringing the eight
months aggregate to nearly one hun
dred millions. As showing the extra
ordinary demand for goods tor distribu
tion, the stock of dry goods in boud has
increased under this large importation
less than two and a quarter million
dollars. The Journal of Commerce says
there is now a large assortment on the
market, but the package trade there is
diminishing every year, owing to the
fact that so large a proportion is im
ported by those who break the pack
ages for their own regular jobbing or
retail trade. ^
It is feared that the eastern part of
Yorkshire, iu England, will, in the
course of tiuie? a very long time? be
entirely washed away by the sea. It i"
estimated that there is an average loss
ol two or three yards along the entire
coast everv year, and that about thirty
acres ot land disappear annually be
rween Spurn Point and * lamborough
Head alone. There was once an im
portant seaport called Kavenspurn on
Ihia coast, wh ch returned a member to
the Parliament ol Edward I.; but in
loO'J there was but little ot it left, and
at tiie close of the next century the
grouud upon which it once stood had
totally dipappeared. Several villages
which appear on old maps have been
destroyed by the encroachment* ot tlie
waves and" Kilnsea, which lost its
churches in 18U6, is likely soon to be
swept away altogether.
A NBW thieving dodge is practiced by
females who enter cars, and, finding a
gentleman sitting alone, ask if the
other seat is occupied. The gentleman
at once motions her to be sealed, when
she politely asks him .1 be won t allow
her to Hit by the window. Of course
this request is also granted, and i she
becomes seated. Presently she fiuda
that there is not air enough in the car,
and requests the gentleman to raise the
window, lie at on?e rises to do so, and
as he leans over her she picks his pocket
or removes his watch, which passes to
a male confederate iu the next seat be
hind her.
