no:* can those do it who have heretofore

?UTCBOFPrNO Or THJt Scandal.?The
American Congressional Union held it*
annual meeting in New York, last Fri?
day. Tilts hJxvAij was disturbed by of*
jeoti?j?>8 offeree^to the retention of Henry
en sj?bnje of tie (rushes, by Dr.
Baeon. Dr, Bacon Was under- I
object to Bowen on account of |
hia connection with theBeeoher scandal,
and more particularly for the testimony J
he gave a few days ago. The Union con
ftRRna7' ndweveYr~hot to scratch the*'
name/ of Bowen, and Dr. Bacon resigned,
saying that his self-respect would not
permTl' "him lo' serve** as' trustee with
Bowen. Two - reasons appear for the
j action of the body, one a good one, the
other rather doubtful, both embodied in
the remark of a member: "I don't per?
sonally care much for Mr. Bowen, but
e has always been very liberal towards
us bath in money and advertising, and
X should n't care to see his name dropped.
Besides, after all, it is not he who is on
trial." The discovery of who it is that is
on trial seems one of the most I difficult
undertakings of the Brooklyn public. A
lew think it is Bescher, but more are
positive that it I* Sir Marmadnke, and
now we see that some others consider it
to be the founder of Plymouth Church.
Bowext's money investments stood him
instead in this, emergency. Had he not
paid it out freely, and given his columns
liberaily to "advertising." hemight have
been incontinently condemned as prin?
cipal, where he was only a witness and
may be a plotter in the great scandal

The Boston Post truly says that if the
latest lynching had occurred somewhere
down South, instead of in the virtupu?
State of Iowa, it would have afforded a
fine chance for some more outrage litera
iare. The particulars of this high-handed
outrage reveal (ho fact that tho victim
was an old and affluent farmer named
Kirkman, for twenty years a resident of
Storey County, and, for aught that ap?
pears to the contrary, a gontlemen of
good character. Some months ago, h?
was accused by the Vigilante, of whom
there seems to be an organized band, of
having burned his son-in-law's barn, and
threatened with hanging. He procured
the arrest of the leaders, and during the
pendency of their trial, he was notified,
under pain of death, to leave the coun?
try for six months. He failed to comply
with tho demand, and he was dragged
I so in bis bed and' murdered in cold
blood, simply as a means of getting out
I of the way a Jppiibjesome witness.

o? Thursday, as a valuable rel'o of the
great trial
' A Mixii?H Do lla n Tnmx. ?Dr. Hall's
new Presbyterian Church, on Fifth ave?
nue, New York, is briefly described as
The new edifice ?triken the eye very
pleasantly. Although massive and ex?
pensive, everything is plain and neat
It is at Fifth avenue and Fifty-fifth
street, fronting 200 feet on the latter
and 100 on the former. The front, an
Fifth avenue, has two towers, the mam
tower rising 300 feet above the aide
walk, 14 feet higher than Trinity spire.
The other tower is 160 feet high. The
main entrance, with four doublo door?
ways, is between the towers, and is ap?
proached by a stone porch 40 feet broad,
with stone steps. There are also five
sido entrances. There are two other
towers, that at the North-wcRt corner,
100 feet high, being an air shaft to sup
Ely the church with fresh air, the air
eing taken at the top, to have it pure
and free from dust The principal
entrance opens into a vestibule 46 by 16
feet. Tho auditorium is 100 feet deep
on the main floor, 136 feet deep on the
gallery, 45 feet wide, and 60 feet high,
with seats for 2,000 persons. The pews
are arranged' in concentric curves, every
seat commanding a full view of the
pulpit The ground floor and galleries
are inclined as in a theatre. There is a
finely carved canopy over the pulpit,
and above this is a gallery for tho choir
and the largo organ. The ceiling is of
wood, with In ..dsomely decorated
reis and moulded ribs. There are
large and 24 small windows. Each
window has two sets of sashes, glazed
with stained glass. Gas jets have been
put between the sashes, so that at the
evening services the stained glass may
be seen both inside and out. The space
between the two sashes is a large venti?
lating flue, drawing the air from the
church through the perforated panels
of the wainscoting, the current being
increased by the neat of gas burners
within the space. Every gas burner in
the church is hidden by ornamental
glass work, and supplied with ventilat?
ing flues, giving a mellow light very
pleasing to the eye.
The air tower at the North-west corner
supplies pure air, which is drawn by a
fan in the cellar at the base of the tower,
and is worke_d by a ten-horse power
steam engine. Ten feet above the floor
ot the tower, inside, a perforated water
pipe extends around the walls, making a
shower to cool the air in the summer
and free it from dust if necessary. The
entire cellar floor can also be sprinked,
to cool the air. The fa:, is of iron, seven
feet in diameter, and can make 220 revo?
lutions s minute, forcing 30,000 cubic
feet of pure air into the church every
minute. The entire cellar is an air and
heating chamber, into which the fan de?
livers the air, the ceiling being covered
with a net-work of steam-heating pipes.
Before the air enters tho auditorium it
passes over the steam pipes, and is
warmed. The warm air enters the body
of the church through movable slate
under the benches of every pew, and
every person in the pew can have warm
ore-old air at his feet, as he chooses.
When the cold air is forced into the audi?
torium it enters fifty feet above the heads
of the congregation, so that there can be
no draft. The steam for heating is gene?
rated in two fifty-horse power boilers.
The bellows of the organ are worked
by a hydraulic apparatus, the water
being supplied from a tank in tho prin?
cipal tower, 125 feet above the side-walk,
a powerful steam pump forcing the water
from a cistern in the cellar into the tank,
which holds 6,000 gallons. Near the
tank are the fire hose, through which
the entire building can be deluged in a
few minutes. The cellar walls are doublo,
with a space between to exclude damp- |
ness, and all the drain and water pipes
are thoroughly ventilated.
In the rear of the main auditorium is
a hall ten feet wide, with two wide stair?
ways leading to the galleries. Next to
the hall, in the rear, is the chapel or
lecture-room, 75 by 45 feet, and 25 feet
high, with a large gallery on one end and
ladies' parlors on the other, having ac?
commodations for iOO persons. There is
also a trustees' room and a minister's
room. Over the lecture room is the Sun?
day suhool room, with three galleries.
There are also scvoral largo class-rooms
and u library. Over the olads-rooius is a
flat for the assistant sexton and his
family. All tho pews, gallery, fronts,
organ cose, and all the interior joiner's
work are of the best ash wood, po?
The Raid on tuk Whiskey Mills,
The descent of the Treasury Department
upon the whiskey ring in the West for
defrauding the revenue, is described as
one of the most skillfully planned and
executed movements ever made by the
Government against such frauds. The
headquarters of the ring have been at St.
Louis, but its ramifications have extend?
ed to Chicago and Wilwaukie, and thence
all overthe East, West and South. The
thirty large distilleries and rectifying es?
tablishments seized Monday, are in the
three cities named, but evidence ob?
tained at these three points will make it
an easy matter to root out the frauds
practiced elsewhere. The overthrow of
this formidable combination was ma?
naged, it seems, by Secretary Bristow
ana Solicitor Wilson, no other officer in
the Treasury Department being intrust?
ed with any knowledge of the matter, it
being suspected that there was some one
in the Internal Revenue Bureau who
was in the habit of telegraphing imme?
diately to agents of the ring every official
secret of the least value to it It is not
believed that Commissioner Douglass is
Sony way personally connected with
a fraudulent irnnsatiiiou.

The Court Room being in the third

so far above the btreet, as to drown the
noise; and as for convenience, the Court
is only in session two weeks, as a general
thing; whereas, the Internal Kevenue
Collector aud other Government officials
have their offices open constantly. This
building is, we believe, the first out1 of
the kind completed in the South. Tt"Is
substantially built, and will be elegantly
finished and furnished, and with every
convenience. The architect must have
anticipated a cold spell, for the heating
arrangements are thorough; the ventila?

No Diamond Yxt.?The grand jury
made no presentment* yesterday. They
took testimony, some days ago, in the
diamond, matter, hot have *s yet taken
no farther slips thai have been mado
puDfTo. 'Neither* hare the City Council
brought their .subordinates, who were
concerned in the abstraction of the dia?
monds, to any account. We believe they
are all continued in office. Everything
is serene, except with Mr. Kimborongh,
who came over from Georgia to recover
his stolen property, and wept back minus
his diamond cross. We have heard it In
tlmated that a puTrnlc'meeling oTeflEBBST
will be held to require the City Council
to investigate this matter to the bottom.
Will the City Council dilly-dally till thin
coal of Are is put on their backs to make
them move? They should act promptly
and relieve themselves and the city from
the imputation under which they root..
Since the appointment of cosapaHtrtaia-t
citizens, six months ago, to conduct cer?
tain important investigations, and their
feilure to report or make any sign of life
whatever, we are distrustful of that means
of relief from any evil or shame.. But
better that than nothing. Will the Coun?
cil delay to purge themselves until this
extraordinary remedy is applied? ?,
