J AXES E. CHAMBERS, Editor. SATURDAY, - - MAKCII 30,1873. EU1TOBUL AR 4CKAPHV It is rumored thitt General Sickles, en ooarswged by his recent success in break ing up the Erie Bing, Is about to resijin his Spanish mtesion and enter upon the practiee of law in Xew York. Un doubtedly It would be attended with profit m far as the gentleman himself is concerned, and might, possibly, be of equal benefit, to the country at large. Kkw Okleans can not have Ben But ler, but instead mn.ft rest couteut with a brother-in-law of that tJistingiiirflied per son.'"" Undoubtedly the fact can be used with good effeet by the civil-service re formers. ' It aeetn that Geueral Long Rtreet was obliged to resign the position of surveyor of the port through disgust! at the frauds and peculations of Casey, the collector who, by-the-way. is the name individual that lately employed the Federal revenue cutter, for nearly two weeks, In carrying a lot of State Sena tors up and down the river in order to protect them from arrest, and who owes his position to the fact of being a brother-in-law of the President. To supply his place, one Parker, from Lowell, Ma achtiHett, ho been appointed as gttr rcyor, who, If unqualified for no other reason, ought to have been from the fact of his relationship to the smartest and most dishonest politician in the country. Is reform a myth ? Mr. Jussen a brotlicr-in-law to Carl Schurtz published last week in the Chicago Tribune a letter which con tains some most singular charges and statements. The immediate cause of its publication was the exposure, so-called, of Senator Schurtz, which appeared not long since in the Xew York Time. Whether true or false, the statements of Mr. Jussen' are sufficiently grave to make them present at least a prima facie appearance of truthfulness. Mr. J ussen who at that time held the position of col lector of Internal revenue in Chicago, states among other things that while in office he was compelled to dismiss one Dr. Lnmpcr, who was a cousin of the President and ganger of that district, for appropriating a large quantity of high wines. When his frauds were discover ed Dr. Tamper was very defiant and dar ed the collector to take any action against him, but for once rascality encountered honesty and he received a dismissal whicli was afterwards approved by Com missioner Delano. Not long afterwards Dr. Lampcr was appointed receiver of the public moneys in the land office in Washington Territory. Again, Mr. Jussen slates that on one occasion he was approached by Mr. Orville Grant. a broth or of the President, with the proposition to allow a certain distillery to double its capacity without paying additional tax, and upon the matter being reported to the Commissioner, Mr. Grant shielded himself by saying that he made the offer only "to test Mr. Jussen's integritv." The letter in the Tribune contains many other statements concerning whose truthfulness we know nothing, but which, ns we said before, are sufficiently grave to merit, investigation. Journalistic Courtesy The only George Francis Traiu once said that unless a man entertained a good opinion of himself, certainly no one else would. Perhaps this is partly true, but unfortunately a great many allow their self-appreciation to degenerate into arro gance and self-conceit two qualities sufficiently disagreeable when exhibited in private life, but which are intensified into offensivene.su if displayed by those whose business brings them prominently before the public. Supercilious self-as sertion will never fill the place of cour teous argument, nor will anected con tempt ever be other than a practical con fession of conscious weakness. Too generally the metropolitan press of our country entertains an exagerated opinion of its own importance, and, as a consequence, is apt to correspondingly underrate the influence and ability of the provincial journals. A natural result is an affectation of superior wisdom and judgment, that would be ludicrous were it not lamentable, as a palpable breach of that consideration to which every man is entitled. The fact is overlooked that the aggregate circulation of all the dailies printed iu the United States and Territories, and adjacent provinces, docs not amount to two million copies, while that of the country weeklies exceeds eight millions. The careful study of sta tistics might improve the manners of at least some ot the writers for the public press. A noticable instance or tins was an editorial article which lately appeared in one of the Cleveland dailies as a reply to a cotemporary iu Ashtabula county. As to the merits of either we have nothing to say, and only mention it as a fair ex ample of the ungenerous and discourteous tone which is so frequently indulged in by those who conduct the city papers. when answering or speaking of the country weeklies. ' Civility, while due to all, is especially called for In the intercourse between members of the same profession, and we trust that the time will soon come when disregard of its demands will be held to be equally disreputable with that inso lence of personalities- which formerly was so prevalent, but which of late has fallen into the disgrace it merited. A Bill. In our report ofthe legislative, pn ceedings at Columbus will be found the notice of a bill, introduced by our repre sentative, Mr. Steele, for tin; purpose of providing for the. building a bridge across Grand River, on the site of what was known as the "Planklload Bridge. In order that all may understand its pro visions we reprodu.ee the bill In full : K mi.L.. To authorize the County Corumis sloners of Lake county to levy a tax and issue 1kw!4 for the purpose of raising the money to itnil.i a linage across tranu river, ueiween Psinesvillcnnd Fairport, in sain county, bee tion 1. Be it enarttat hit the General Aembly of the ktatm of Ohm.

Such tnu. Is fh.-ill be iu denomination not less than one hundred dollars nor more than one thousand dollars, with interest not exceeding eight per cent, per annum, payaoie annually and not for a longer time tbau live years from date, and Mich liouds shall not be sold at less than pmt. Sec. S. This act shall take effect lroin and after its passag . It may. be. and undoubtedly is, true that the public interests demand a bridge at the. point rpecifled, but the wisdom of seeking to secure it by this special l.cgis-la-iou is very much to be doubted. As the law now stands, questions relative to building biiilges upon any new sites must be referred to the people while the construction of any that may be carried away or destroyed by freshet or other casualty, can lM'ixl;rtn by the coiumis sioners without submitting the matter to people. But the law was given no retro active effect and consequently was of no service in the piesent instance, as it was passed after tho bridge iu question had been carried away. It is thcrefoie to be presumed that the present bill was In troduced simply to remedy this defect. But such an amendment to the general statute as would have provided for this, in common with all other similar crises, would have been a much preferable method. Special legislation ha an in evitable tendency : promote fraud and corruption, and although exceptional cases may arise to necessitate "us ito, yet they simply prove the truth of the gen eral rule, that, so tar as possible, its use should Ik- avoided. At ('! umbn . With the gathering of the Republican State Convention at Columbus tliejioliti- itl campaign iu this Slate may be cou riered as having been fairly oened at least by one party. In another column will be found a reiort of its proceedings and a brief account of the results of its labor. So far as those present were con cerned, the action of the convention seems to have been highly satisfactory. but whether its expressions and resolu tions were in realitv the echo of the feel ings of the entire party, as was claimed for them, may fairly be doubted. Cer tainly nothing as yet done by the peo ple themselves would prove it true, while the larger number of I.'cpublieans who ot J.c-pwn:eans wno , mil -an :iii)cniiiie he renomination fveto payment I .. ... i grading etc. was ... sympathy with the , uffioI, t, are opposed to the Grant and who are Reform movement would seem to prove the contrary. But even if the ixople s verdict uo.i the present administration was one of unqualified approval, it does not by any means follow that the tie- 1 cision would he equally unanimous for the renomination of General Grant, as against any and all others. Inded there are many indications to show that this would not be so, and in view of the ap proaching convention at Cincmiiatti, such committals to one line of action can not but lie nature and therefore prejudiced. Aside from all this there were ex hibitions, by those in attendance at the Convention, which it would bean insult to every respectable republican in the State to claim as anything more than in dividual acts. Undoubtedly much must be pardoned in view ofthe "iremuiduous enthusiasm" which prevailed and the consequent excitement of those who as sisted in the cheering and shouting. But the delegates ought to have remembered that, to a certain extent, they were there as representatives of a great party, aiid tfiat carousals kept up till three oVlock in the morning are not considered, by the majority ofcit'.zens,as worthy of approval and commendation. The following ex tract is from a report sent to the Cleveland Herald and reeds no comment : M1KI.VO A SIGHT OK IT. Koine of onrCnvnhoira members ofthe Leg islature had provided a large room at the Neil 1 louse for headquarter, and when the delega tions from the county arrived they were received and entertained in the most hospitable manner.

Oir Xqvwj folk for April is in every way up to the standard. and maintains all of its accustomed excellence. The lead- ins attraction in the present niimoer is the continuation of "A Chance for Hint self." by J. T. Trobrid're. The table of contents while varied, is also large too large to be reproduced here. there are a nunilicr of well-known names appended to the articles, anionic which we notice that of James Parton, who has an art icle on " The t irst isapttsm in t ongo. ilie merits of this matrazine consist in com bining the useful and entertaining, in eoual parts.

California Curiosity of Plant Life." is an enter- talniug paper on Xatural History, with a number of striking illustrations. Prof Scheie de Vere writes sketehilv, and with the aid of pictures, of the Earth's 'Hidden Treasures;" and Amos G. Draper, himself an inmate of the insti tution, describes "The Silent College at Washington." Apropos of Easter, we find a graphic account,by Eugene Schuy ler, of the Hussian observance of the feast; also a thoughtful and characteris tic poem by Mrs. A. 1). T. Whitney "Awakened Japan" is the title of a brief and timely paper by JNoah Brooks, a writer unusually well informed on Japan matters. The three short stories are especially readable. They are "The Mullenville Myster," by young Haw thorne: "With the False Prophet: A Mormon Wife's Story," Mrs. Kaffensper- eer: and xnenaunteu i loset,', by Mrs, Weiss. There is a suggestive and touch ing little paper on "ine uov .John Warner's "Back-Iog Studies IV," are juicy and delicious as usual. These pa pers have attracted wide attention, and constitute one of the most attractive features of the Monthly. "Shall we say 'Is Being Built' " is a spirited and schol arlv essay in tho field of grammatical controvorsy, by Fitzedward 11 ass, of Ox ford university; and in an able and eloquent paper Dr. Tayler Lewis defends the belie! in "ilie one Human Kaee, in opposition to the theories of a race before Adam. Among the poems, Msirsrcrct J. Preston's "Hero of theCommniie"should not be overlooked. In the Editorial De partments Pr. Holland expresses some decided opinions on "A Heresy or Art," "Hc-tcrdoxy," "The Illinois Temperance Law," and"The General and his Friends. In the "Old Cabinet" there is a talk about "The Smut of 'Real . Work,'" "Our Friend's Portfolio," and the "Sta tuettes." In the department of "Home and Society," and "Culture and Progress abroad" a'nd "At Home" are papers on "Tho Art Museum." musical matters, and new books. The Etchings show how Peter Green emulated the Grand Duke's career in the Bufl'alo Hunt. Probably there is nothing in the.niaga zine superior to Mr. Warner's "Back Log Studies,, from which we clip the following morsel, of delicate humor and satire on "Reformers at Dinner." Mandeville. I attended a protracted convention of reformers of a certain evil once, and had the pleasureof tiikingdiu ncr with a table full of them, It was one of those count rydiuncrs accompanied with green tea.' Every one disagrees with every one else, and you wouldn't wonder at it if yon had seen them. They were people, with whom good faith wouldn't agree. George Thompson was expected at the conventinn.nnd I remem ber that there was almost a cordiality iu the talk about him, until one sallow brother casually mentioned that George took snuff when a chorus of deprecat tory groans went up from the tabic. One long-faced maiden in spectacles, with purple ribbons in her hair, who drunk five cups of tea by my count, declared that she was perfectly disgusted. irni tho didn't want to hear him speak. Iu course of the'meal the talk ran upon (he discipline of children. and how to admin- Uter punishment. I was quite taken by the remark of a thin, dyspeptic man, who summoned up the matter by growling out in a harsh, deep baas voice, "Punish 'em in love !" It sounded ns if )ie iad said "Shoot them on the spot." NETSTS OF ''- TT XJTEEK. J .A.T HOME. East, West, North. & South. 0 ABROAD. Late Foreiyn Advice GE3-TE:R.-A.:i NEWS 5eO- &0-, ScO- OHIO. TiikSexaTK liesume for the ttett end- iutj March Wednesday morning a quorum was present and the tsenate proceeded with its usual business. of hear ing and considering petitions and me morials upon divers and varied subjects. Iu the afternoon in Committee of the Whole, consideration was had of Mr. Stevenson's redistrictlng bill. There was some discussion, but finally without dettiilte action, the bill was referred to Committee on Uetlistr.cting. The Max hill an amendment of the code rcla- for widening streets. taken up, but pend- ic Senate atljoiirneil. Thursday the consideration of this bill was continued neaily all day, aud final ly was passed. On Friday, several bills of more or less importance weie intro-; duced, and some ten or a dozen local en- I actmcnts passed. On motion of Mr. j Putnam, his bill relative to the election j oi delegates to the Constitutional Con- I veution was taken up, the pending ques- tion being on agreeing to a substitute j providing for the election ot delegates ; in April, 1873, and for the mceeiug of the Convention at Columbus, on the ; second Tuesday of May following. Af ter lengthy discussion and debate, the substitute was agreed to and passed. Siituaday was a day of masterly inactlvi- v, devoted to petitions,- remonstrances and resolutions. On Monday morning a few local bills were passed, and in the afternoon, the first gun of the season on the liquor question was nreu. immedi ately after the session commenced, Mr. Putnam moved to discharge the tem perance committee from turther consid eration of Mr. McDowell's bill to amend the liquor law of 1870 to provide that parties shall give notice, either by pun- ication or personal service, belore any suit for damages can be brought, and also to provide that suits must be brought separately against persons selling the liquoi and landlords. Mr. McDowell said on the 22d of February this bill was sent to the Temperance Committee. Xo meeting has since been held, although he hail three times asked that this commit tee lie called together to consider this measure. A vote was then taken on the question of compelling the temperance committee to report the bill back for ac tion, ami the motion was defeated, nine yeas to nineteen nays. While this can not be called a test vote, still It is some thing of a straw to show which way the wind blows, in the listot those wnouid not vote there are some who, without doubt would have voted for the motion if they had been present. There is some reason for thinking that some members dodged, but they will be forced to put themselves on record on this question before the present session ends. Tues day was allowed to go by without much work ot any kind. limllofSK. Resume for the teeek end- inn March 2UtA. Wednesday morning was spent in miscellaneous business and all the afternoon iu discussing Mr. IVright's Senate bill to provide for the sale of Virginia Military lands, and ap plying the proceeds to the agricultural college fund. The bill was finally passed. The second reading of bills, which was interrupted by a sjiecial order Wednes day was again interrupted Thursday to take up the .supplementary loledo Kail- road bill, introduced early in the session by Mr. Marx. The discussion was in terrupted by the usual recess,after which it was resumed, and all the afternoon was given up to it. Many speeches were made pro and con. The bill, when put on its passage, tailed, nut torty-eignt votes being cast for it. On Friday a good deal of miscellaneous routine busi ness was transacted, and the Senate bill to exempt members of fire companies from militia, road and jury duty, and the Senate bill to amend section fourteen of the act concerning the relations of guardian and ward, were passed, on Saturday, at the afternoon sessioifMr. Scott made an ineffectual effort to get the House to go into Committee of the Whole on the appropriation bill. The bill to amend the act to prevent empiri cism in the practice of medicine, bv strikiug out the ten vears clause, was read the third time, and in the absence of the author, Pr. etl', was hud on the table A good deal of miscellaneous business occupied the further attention of the House. Monday morning was .entirely taken up with the introduction of vari ous bills. Miscellaneous business occu pied the afternoon session, including a large number of reports of committees, on whose recommendation over fifty bills were ordered lor third reading on Tues day, Thursday, Friday and Monday next, A resolution was adopted, after long dis cussion, to print twenty thousand copies each of the report of the Secretary of State and Hoard ot Agriculture tor the year 1871-72, two thousand copies each on German. On Tuesday considerable miscellaneous business was transacted aud several bills of a local nature passed Among these latter was Mr. Steele's bill to authorize the commissioners of Lake county to issue bonds and levy a tax to build a bridge across Grand river, be tween Fairport aud Painesville. At the afternoon session, the special order, be ing the lull introduced by Mr, J lowland to protect consumers of illuminating oils. was; taken up, but without reaching any action the House adjourned. The stock holders of the Ashtabula, Youngstown and Pittsburg Railroad, held a meeting in Ashtabula on Wednesday, and by four thousand two hundred and eighty-one votes against one hundred, ratified the contract with the PeimsylvaniaCompany for operating their road. For the-first time in some years, an application was made to the Executive Department, for the issue of a commis sion as notary public to a female. The applicant to-day was Miss Annette Con ise of Tiffin, a lady who is a graduate of the classical course of Heidelberg Col lege, and who has studied law for one year. The application was referred to Attorney General Pond, who expressed an opinion that under the constitution and laws of Ohio such a commission could not be Issued to a female. On Wednesday the 27th the Republican State Convention met at Columbus. Rarely, if ever, in the history of Ohio, has there been manifested so deep and general an interest in a convention din ing the "off" year in State politics, as In this one. This cannot be. attributed to the usual and Inevitable scramble for office which constitutes so large a part of our political system, for outside the cir cle ofthe friends ofthe candidates for the few offices to be filled at this time, there was little excitement in regard to them. The interest centered in the fact that this is the Presidential year, and tiie conven tion was the opening of the campaign. Necessity, however, prevents us from giving more than a brief summary of the results of Ita action. Lack of room compels us to leave out the many details which we would otherwise have given. The convention was called to order at eleven o'clock, and opened with prayer by Rev. Mr. W&ddeH, of Hardin county, lion. Alphonso Hart, of Portage county was introduced as temporary chairman, and was greeted with loud applause. A ballot, for secretaries Was then had, and resulted Ju the elecaion of Samuel M.

Granuis of Cny- . ahoga, on committee, on Uuslness; Ixiuis j Smithiiight of Cuyahoga, on State Ccn tral Committee. The question of choos ing delegates to the l'luladelphia Con vention, and Presedentlal Electors, was discussed at some length. Neither Cuy ahoga pop Si)iiHi))t (jch'gates had any iu- etruetions on the subject, while the Lake -o. delegates were aireeteu to unite witn , the action of the other two counties. It seemed to be the general feeling that the j people would be better satisiied if the ' matter was referred back to them, and j on the motion of Mr. Granuis, the Dis- j trict and Congressional Committees were : requested to call a District Convention to elect delegates to the Philadelphia Convention. Upon reassembling in the aiteriiooii the choice of delegates at large to the Philadelphia Convention was taken up. A motion was carried that the highest candidates be chosen delegates, and the convention hen pro ceeded to ballot. Jacob Mueller of Cuyahoga, Samuel Craighead of Mont gomery, J. Madison Bell, of Lucas, and Henry Kessler of Hamilton, were elected. As alternates, Messrs. W. A. Walden of Jefferson, Joseph Brnff of Morgan, S. X. Titus of Meigs, and S. T.

Wednesday was takeu ud with the introduction of a few bills of no particular importance and the par tial discussion ot the tarilt bill, on Thursday several bills were reported from the respective Committees relative to pensions and military affairs, aud early in the afternoon the tariff bill was taken up out alter a snort uiscussion me Senate weut into executive session and soon, after adjourned. On Friday the Vice President laid before the senate a memorial, signed by over four hundred women of Utah, strongly deprecating the admission of that Territory into the Union as a State. In a letter addressed to the Vice President, accompanying the memorial, a committee ot hve ladies state that a large majority of the signers have been residents ot L tah, and mem bers of the Mormon church Tor many years: that numbers of them have had a personal and very bitter experience of the practical workings oi polygamy, anu that they have every reason to believe that their wrongs would be continued and greatly intensified by the admission of Utah into the Union, and the conse quent accession of power to the Mormon priesthood. The papers were ordered printed. Several bills were introduced and the bill to enable discharged soldiers and sailors, or their widows, to acquire bomsieads on public lands was passed The tarifl bill then came up, and after some discussion the question was taken on Mr. Scott's amendment putting tea and coffee on the .free list, and it was agreed to. Some other amendments were then introrluced but without reach ing final action upon any of them the Senate adjourned until Monday. On that day the tariff question again came up but. was laid aside for the considera tion of bills reported by the l ommittee on Commerce. A number of these were passed and the bill to facilitate commerce with China, Japan and other countries of Asia was taken up, but lending con sideration the Senate went into executive session and soon after adjourned. Tues day after some little outside discussion the tariff bill again came up and was de bated for the greater part of the day Several amendments were offered and rejected and at an early hour the Senate adjourned. Tun Hocse Sesnme for the week ending March 26tA. On Wednesday the 20th, a few bills were passed in the morning but none of general interest. The bill for reorganization of the civil service, which was the special order wi the day, was, on motion of Mr. Willard, further liostponed till four weeks. The House then, at 2:30 o'clock, went into Committee of the Whole on the post-of fice appropriation bill, the liendm question being on the increase of subsidi ty to the China mail steamers. After de bate the committee rose and reported the bill to the House, which passed, and an adjournment followed. The balance of the week was occupied in local legisla tion for the District or Columbia and dilatory dawdling. On Monday the same useless waste of time was continu ed; the only thing accomplished being on motion of Mr. Hawley to suspend the rules and pass the Senate bill to enable honorably discharged soldiers and sail ors, their widows and minor children, to secure homesteads on the public lands. Agreed to without the yeas and nays. On Tuesday after spending the day in votingoii motions to adjourn, alternated with motions to take a recess, but with out coming any nearer to a solution of the difficulty. Mr. Hooper, irom the Committee on Banking and Currency, presented the testimony takeu before that committee in the matter ofthe failure of National Banks, with a resolution that it is the opinion of the committee that the successful working of the Currency Bu reau requires a change in the head of that bureau. The testimony and reports - were ordered printed, to be called up for future action. The Xew York Custom House Inves tigating Committee is still in session. PSenator West and Governor Wartnoth had an interview with the President, and as soon as it was over a delegation of colored men from Xew Orleans, to gether with Senators Kellogg, Packard, Carter aud others, also had an Interview with the President by appointment. The subjects discussed were the political affairs of Louisiana and the divisions in the Republican party. Although grounds of reconciliation were suggest ed, there has been no progress In that direction. Governor Ito., accompanied by Mr. Fikoulski, left Washington Monday, for Xew York, on his return to Japan." His business is to report to his government the progress of the negotiations of a treaty between Japan and the United States for such instructions as the em bassy requires iu the promises, ajid also as to their future diplomatic transac tions. Governor Ito will also take with him dispatches from the Embassadors to their Sovereign, giving circumstantial details of their journey thus far in this country, and the friendly manner in which they have been received by the Government and the people of the Uni ted States. The Commissioner of Indian Affairs has received an official report from Ari zona City showing that but few of the tribes pi acetl on reservations manifest a disposition to positively accept, the con ditions offered by the generosity ofthe Government, Xcr opportunity lias been lost to acquaint them with the lnteiir lions ofthe Government, and they fully comprehend the order of General Crook to remain on their reservation after the loth ultimo.

IOWA. At Pes Moines, Hon. J. B. Grinne.l, by invitation, delivered a speech on the po litical situation, bciore a large audience comprising the Governor, State officials. and a majority of the members of the Assembly. He argued against the re nomination ot Grant, and in favor of James F. llson. The alternative would no tne Cincinnati convention and a broad platform, around which the people would gather. Iowa would be strongly represented at Cincinnati. The speaker was closely listened to, and the speech excited much comment. At. a meeting of Germans the following resolutions were adopted : Whekkas, The German element of the United States have lately banded them selves under Carl Sehurz as their leader, under the banner of freedom and justice, against corruption ; tlierelore. be it liesoleed, That it be the duty of the Turnverein of Little Rock, adhering to the Turners' Union, to take such steps in the coining political campaign in Ar kansas as will most effectually help to carry out the above mentioned principles against corruption, and to do all in their power to elect and place in power only honest and competent men. llesnlved, That the speaker ofthe Turn verein be authorized, so that all the Ger man associations of Little Rock and oth er parts of the State may have an oppor tunity to help with their united power to carry out the good work of reform, to call a mass meeting of the German citi zens of Little Bock and surrounding country, iu order lo perfect I heir organ ization, A telegram received from Senator liar- Inn, from Washington, states that I he Union Pacific directors have .-lequjesi-od in the decision of the gove.miueut direc tors that Council Bluffs, and not Omaha, Is the terminus of the Union I'aeili road, but it appears that on account o the contract Willi Omaha two transfer will be made, one here and one in' Oniri of ha.

There was therefore no question concerning the ter minus. Xo other uuestiou was" decided byJi!dge Jxve iu that case, the Omaha papers and telegrams to the coutrjiry not withstanding. NKW YORK. A committee of the Georgia Legislature arrived yesterday to take testimony in reference to the conduct of the abscon ded ex-Governor Bullock of that state. The investigation will include the Governor's financial transactions with the State Agent. The proceedings will be conducted in private. It is stated that the Judiciarv Com mittee is in posessiou of an exhibit of a banking account of Judge Cardozo, showing at various time drafts made by Gratz Nathan, Cardozo's receiver, and corresponding deposits of amounts by the .lodge. The total ot the transactions reaches about (32,000.

Comptroller Green of New York, in answer to a resolution of the Senate, re ports the cost of the. new Court House, so far as the same has lieeu paid, at $8,- 104,941); furniture and repairs, $a,2S2,- 229; additional claims oiitstandsng so far as known, $242,579, which are held by the Tenth National Bank. The Comp troller has no means of ascertaing other claims, but he says they are large. It is reported, says the iribuue, that about forty Tammany refugees have ta ken up their residence at St. Johns, X. B., and that they are living there under assumed names. Among the reports made to the Senate was one on the bill to increase the causes lor divorce. It makes as cause such conduct on the part ofthe husband towards the wife as shall, without just cause, deprive her of the society of her relatives or triends, or ot attendance on public worship, or shall designedly ren der her life unhappy or uncomforta ble. Henry C. Bowen publishes a card con cerning the imputations ot the jritmne that he was interested at one time In the General Order Business. He admits signing a letter by which an agreement was made to pay InmseU and his asso-" ciates thirty per cent, of the gross re ceipts of the General Order Business, in return lor his influence in retaining business for parties. Besides this 7ifc une charge, he wrote an individual letter sanctioning the agreement. His defense is that he did all this for his associates, and didn't himself make any money out of it. Ex-Collector Barney declares that the authority which Bo'wcn exer cised in the negociations was wholly assumed and repudiated by him. Furth ermore, Barney, on discovering the ar rangement, at once stopped it. Bowen agrees to make good whatever was lost iu The General Order Business in that time. The War Veterans' Associations, at a recent meeting, indorsed the bill lately iiitrodeced iu Congress by W. T. Ses sions for increased pensions to soldiers and sailors who have lost both eyes.both legs, both armsj'eet or hands. They state that there are in the United States 2G1 soldiers who have lost both eyes, 118 who lost both legs, 11 who lost both feet, 5 who lost bath bauds, 32 who lost both arms, and 10 who lost an arm and a leg. The increase asked by the bill will only add (15,000 to the pension appropriation. The funeral of the late General Robert Anderson will take place on Wednesday April 3d, unless relatives residing iu Ohio meanwhile express a wish for a date. The Seventh, Ninth and Twenty, first regiments of the National Guards will act as escort. Of the regular army there will be present four foot batteries of artillery.including battery E, Captain Tyler, and battery H, Captain llasklns, which formed General Anderson's com mand while Major of the First artillery during the bombardment of Fort Sump- ture. There will also be a section of light artillery . from battery K, First United Sjates artillery, and tour com panies of the Eight United States in fantry. The vetera 11 Sixty-second New York volunteers, known during the wt:r as "Anderson Zouaves," as well as the Old Guard and several Masonic bodies, have also tendered their services, and will probably take part. Two log huts, eighteen feet high and twenty feet square, were destroyed in digging for the foundation of a new building in the rear of 82 Sullivan street, one evidently a -residence of primitive times, and the other a cattle shed. Since the agitation in Congress of the repeal of duties on tea and coffee, there has been a stagnation iu the trade iu this city. The bonded warehouses are tilled with goods, and there have been eight million pounds less of withdrawal from bond this year. Hnsiiia.
