Mr. Lincoln was declared elected Presi

He proved himself, however, a good and
linn presiding officer.
\hiv correspondent at Springfield, in his
di-pitch of Tuesday night, evidently fell
into an error as to the elfcct of postponing
itu* collection of taxes for the year 1860.

have effected. If secession goes on, that

Scenes,’ Incidents, etc.
[Special Dispatch to tiro Chicago Tribune.]
Columbus, Feb. 13,15C1.
Lnterlban the closing last night’s dispatch,
the evening, at Cincinnati, was full of pleasing
and notable incidents. The demonstration of
excited much interest, and their representa
tive addressed Mr. Lincoln in stirring and pa
triotic terms. The Young Republicans of
Cincinnati gave a complimentary
at the Barnet House. It was a pleasant affair.
The large Dining Hall at the Burnet House
was elegantly decorated, andMr.Liucoln there
held a public reception for two hours.
The Little Miami train for Columbus left at
0 A. M., at which time a Large crowd sur
rounded the depot* kept hi excellent order by
the police, and the party embarked without
confusion, Mr. Lincoln remaining on the plat
form as the cars passed at a slow rate through
the dense masses. The train made the dis-
tancc to Columbus (120 miles) in five hours.
At all the stations there were large crowds.
at Waynesvillc, a splendid American flag
floated over the Public HalL
Among those present on the- train were
Judge Spalding t f Cleveland, Hou. Sam Gal
loway and Lara Anderson of Cincinnati, a
brother of Major Anderson. The Commiti ee
c.fEscort jointly const Ruled by the Leglslat arc
of Ohio, had been formally received at Indian
apolis and bore the' President elect company
to the Slate Capital. At all the towns passed
on the line, there, mbs the same enthusiasm
and demonstration as on previous days. Can
non and militoiy bands Habited the passing
I rain nt several points where the f*pced was
only checked.
where the train paused a few* .moment*, Mr.
Jan coin addressed a few words to fun large
crowds there, assembled.
The train reached Columbus at 2 P. M., and
was received with n br llr.nl and impos
ing military demonstration. The city
was alive with excitement, thousands hav
ing come in, from the'country adjoining.
At the depot the President elect aad his suite
took carriages, and were escorted by the mili
tary lo the State Capitol, amid the salute of
artillery, and the cheers of the Immense throng
that lined the streets.
At the Capitol square the party formed and
■were conducted to the Governor's room,hi the
noble capitol building, the finest in the West,
where Mr. Lincoln and the distinguished mem
bers of his suite 'were introduced by Gov.
Dennison to the prominent State Ofileials. At
this time the entire ■west side of the Capitol
square ■was filled with a vast concourse in
waiting for Mr. Lincoln's appearance. From
the Governor's rooms, the parly proceeded to
the ]tall' of ’ Representatives, where both
bnuiehcs of the Legislature were in joint ses
sion. The entire scene was u beautiful and
striking one. The galleries were filled with la
dies, and every available space was filled. As
Mr. Lincoln passed tip the aisle, he was wel
comed in a most enthusiastic manner. Here
.Mr. Lincoln was formally received; and wel
comed by Lieut-Governor Kirk, the Presiding
Ofilce of the Senate, in an exceedingly spirited,
eloquent and patriotic speech:
uKLT-novEUNon kirk's *m:ech. r
He said. The people of Ohio have full confidence
1u your ability and patriotism. and will respond to
you In this loyalty tothe Union and the Constitu
tion. It would seem that the great problem of
self-government is to be solved under your admin
istration. All nations are deeply interested in its
solution, aud they wait with breathless anxiety to*
know whether this form of Government, which
has been the admiration of the world, is Jo be a
failure or not.
To which ilr. Lincoln responded
Mr. President, Mil Speaker, and Oektle
3iex op tue General Assemrly:— lt is true, as
lias been said by the President of the Senate, Unit
very great responsibility rests upon me in the po
sition to wlJchlhc votes of the American people
have called me. I am deeply sensible of that
weighty responsibility. I cannot bxit know, what
you all know, that without a name—perhaps with
out a reason why I should have a name —there has
fallen upon me a task such as did not rest even up
on the Father of hia Country; and so feeling, I
cannot but turn and look for the support without
which it will be Impossible for me to perform that
great task. 1 turn then and look to the American
people and to that God who has never forsaken
Allusion has been made to the interest felt in re.
latlon to the policy of th j new administration. On
this 1 have received from some a certain degree of
credit for having kept silence. From others, some
deprecation. I still think I was right. In the va
rrlng and repeatedly shifting scenes of the present,
without a precedent which could enable us to
judge by the past, it has seemed fitting that before
speaking upon the difficulties of the country I
should have gained a view of the whole field, to be
cure after all, being at liberty to modify and change
the course of policy, as future events may make a
change necessary. I have not maintained silence
frotnany want of reality. It is a good thing that
there is no more than anxiety, for there is nothing
going wrong. It is a consoling circumstance that
when we look out there is nothing that really hurts
anybody. We entertain different views upon po’
litical questions but nobody is suffering anything.
This is a most consoling circumstance and from
It we may conclude that all we want is time, pa
tience, and a reliance on that Goi» who has never
forsaken this people. Fellow citizens, wliat I have
said 1 have said altogether unpremeditated, and I
will now come to n close.
took place for two hours in the Rotunda of the
Capitol, when Mr. Lincoln was conducted to
the private residence of Gov. Dennison, whose
guest the President elect and his family arc,
during their stay in Columbus.
At six p. m., a soiree was given at the Gov
ernor’s residence, continuing for two hours.
Later in the evening a public reception in the
Rotunda of the Capitol was held, closing at
ten P. m.
Alter this reception both Hooscs'adjourned.
Gov. Dennison and Mr. Lincoln then passed
out upon the west front of the Capitol, where,
from the top of the steps, Mr. Lincoln made a
few remarks to the assembled thousands.
Both these were attended by huge numbers
of citizens of tills section. In the evening a
fine display of rockets was madcatihcCapitol

At 4 o’clock this afternoon, Anson Stager,

s'lifl Congressional Apportionment.
[Special Dispatch to tho Chicago Tribune.]
In the TTousc the first tiling after dinner
hour came up the hill providing amendments
to the general hanking law. Some immaterial
stumudmenls were offered and voted down.
Tin motion to amend by striking out that
portion of the bill allowing suspension of
specie payments for six months was voted
down as follows:
Atbs—Messrs. Allen. Ankenv. I/nrr. CTopsey,
I’rouch. Cummin"*. DcWitt. Erwin. Haekley, Har

le?R. McNeil. Nichols, Hlelly. Tp-arlclc. Itclo-nn,
l.’yan. Shan>, Talbot, Vcrmilye x, Walker, Wei
The previous question was then moved and
sustained, and the bill passed as it came from
the committee—ayes SS, noets 12.
Pending the [>assage of Ujc bill, Mr. Seam
mon arose to explain his vote, which embod
ies the reasons generally given for thelaigc
vote in favor of the bill.
He said he should not have consented to occupy
a seat upon this floor but Tor the hope of doing
something t<> remedy the defects in the general
hanking law. and improve this abominable cur
rency which has been robbing the people for some
time past. I prepared with care and introduced at
an early day lids session, a bill with the same title
as that reported from the ■Committee, to wit. a hill
far an act toam°nd the general hanking law, in
r-uchainnnnoras to afford greater rccurhy lo the
public. That hill had one leading idea running
through the whole of it, to wit: increasing and
providing further security lo the public. Many of
taeprovi.-ions of that bill have been incorporated
by the Committee on the bill under consideration,
and the bill as it is, although containing several
provisions, to which I am opposed, is a very great
improvement upon the late as it now stands, and
will benefit the public and improve the currency.
The great fault of out- present system is that the
provision of the old law, t’aat «c hank shall exist
without acUs.il JtonuJlJc cs.sh capital to the amount
«f at least s»«.O3oha* he-en entirely .disregarded.
An amendment in the p resent bill, which the Com
mittee inserted at my request, and which was con
tained in my MU. provides Unit no hank shall here
uficr deposit Imnds an d receive a circulation to an
extent greater than three times its actual capital,
..Huts .-•eerring In addition to the bt.>*da< thirty three
and eno-third per bent- in cash for the redemption
of its circulation, and am bank can hereafter he es
tablished without at least twenty-five thousand
dollar* of actual capital. Tudor these provisions,
honestly administered., it would be impossible un
der ordinary circumstances., for the currency to
become much depreciated, nr exchange to rule at. a
high rate. Yet when I look at this MU being the
title of my own offspring; I cannot recognize it as
my legitimate child. It reminds me of what Isaac
said when Jacob was ap preaching him and claiming
the blessing that belonged to Esau: the voice is
Jacob's voice, hut the hands are the hands of
Esau. Reversing the order,! must say in reference
to this bill, the voice, the title, is mine but the
hands, though velvety aud soft to the touch, con
ceal the claws of the wild cat: yet, as on the whole
its effects will be to increase the security to the
public and iraprovethe currency, I vote for the bill,
believing it the ohlymcasurowc can pass at this
Mr. Jarrot then culled up the special order
of the morning—the Congressional Apportion
ment bill. Mr. Erwin's substitute was voted
down. The previous question was then moved
by tin Democratic side of the house and
ordered without a division ami lie bill passed
—nvcs'Sfl, noos S5.
The House then took up one of the General
Appropriation Mils and passed it without
amendment. Tills Mil appropriates not far
from seventy thousand dollars.
In the afternoon, the House took up the hill
to provide for a system of hanking on a specie
basis. Mr. Hacker moved the previous ques
tion, which was withdrawn. Mr. Church
moved to strike out the names of S. Staats
Taylor, Corydnn Beckwith, Maurice 6-Brown,
Jam* 1 * Mix ami Thomas J, Turner, and insert
words giving ibe appointment of the Commis
sioners to the Governor, with the advice and
consent of the Senate, as required by the Con
stitution. Tliis was voted down. The pre
vious question was moved, carried,and the bill
passed in regular snap judgment style—ayes
hS,noes 7. ,
CM. Jarrot having stated that some threats
concerning the passage of the bill bad been
made to him by one of the Commissioners,
Mr. llurlbut moved to reconsider. Mr.
Hacker moved to lay the motion on the table,
•which was carried—ayes 455, noes 24.
The bill to reorganize the militia of Illinois
came up as the special order. The previous
question was moved and sustained* and after
muJi lime spent in the explanation of votes,
the bill passed—ayes 34, nocs 34.
The following Important Senate bill also
passed the House; “An act io authorize the
Auditor of Public Accounts to retain the con*
pons on interest dividend deposited In his of
fice by the various banks of the State, in pay
ment of the tax due upon the capital stock of
said banks, in certain eases.”
The House then adjourned to tills evening at
at 7 ocTock. This is probably the greatest
amount of work everyone by the House in the
same time. Two party measures and two Im
portant bills carried in one day.
The Senate’s work has been forwarding bu
siness. The bill appropriating $330,000 to the
Penitentiary was taken up ami passed—ayes
24, nocsnonc. • "
The bills making the aggregat c appropriation
of $252,000 for the Jacksonville institutions
were recommitted, but not with the intention
of cutting them down.
An attempt was made to ppf the Bank
Amendment bill throughjvßAUio planner of
the House, which failed, up to*
morrow as the special in
the committee,of the where it
may be amended...
The Senate passed theTfljßßn resolutions
lost night, doing little dse. j • "
T. J. Carter, Esq., the engineer who built
the Great West era Railroad, a wealthy citizen
of this city, made an attempt to cot his throat
last night, wounding himself severely. Ho
was suffering under the nervous derangement
consequent on large doses of quinine and the
prostration following an intermittent fever. It
is thought he will recover. He labors under
the delusion that be was ’, wounded by a colli
sion on the twin hearing Mr. Lincoln.
Whole number of bills approved by the Gov
ernor, thirty-eight, of which there have not
been previously reported:

I) P. M.—-The wires Lost night made me say
§200,u00 had been appropriated by the Defi
ciency bill. I wrote §20,000. I wrote in one
place the twenty-seventh District. The wires
say the eighth District. On further enquiring
to-day, I learn the whole sum the State of
Illinois will have to pay lu the next two years
will be nearer two and a half millions than
iwo millions. The interest is twelve hundred
thousand, instead of one million, and the ap
propriation is likely to conic up to thirteen
hundred thousand. If this lavish expenditure
goes on wo need to Increase rathertliau dimin
ish the taxes.
The House to-night are busy on House and
Scuate bills. The Senate is not in session, but
its committees arc.
The Democratic party hi the Senate lust
night introduced resolutions in these words:
Jlaolccd, That the Union of these States, formed
Ly compromise and concession, cannot be preserv

serve the Union of these Slates we do approve of

[From the Albany Evening Journal.]
We published, a day or t wo- since, a tele
graph statement that an English Captain had
been tarred and feathered by a mob in Savan
nah. Wc learn through a gentleman just ar
rived from that place, the particuiars of the
It appears that the Captain had employed a
free negro stevedora to load Lis vessel. He
was very anxious to push the work; aud for
this purpose cucouraged the stevedore to un
usual efforts by various Utile acts of kindness,
which he considered calculated to aid him iu
the accomplishment of his purpose. Among
other things, he invited him to take his dinner
ou shipboard. The invitation was accepted..
This annoyed the mate, who communicated to
some of his acquaintances ou shore, with em
bellishments, what the Captain hod done.
It required no great effort to raise the cry of
“Abolitionist” against the Captain, nor to in
duce a using of drunken rascals to resolve upon
his summary punishment. The plan adopted,
was carried out. A mob proceeded to the
vessel during the night of Friday week last,
seized the Captain, dragged him from his ves
sel. and clothed him with a coat of tar and
Tue next da}*, the Captnln communicated
with the British Consul, who at once offered a
reward of SIOOS for'the apprehension of those
guilty of the outrage.
Serious results arc likely to grow out of this
act. Our own Government may pay no atten
tion to similar outrages upon our own citizens,
but Great Britain is more sensitive.
The Bryan Bail Meeting.
'Editors Chicago Tribnuc:
Dccmingmyself, as one of the “Republican
masses” of Chicago, included in the call for a
public meeting at Bryan Hall last evening, I
went to the hall shortly before seven o’clock,
and though it was lighted up, and there were
voices heard inside ns if a considerable num
ber had gathered, I found the door locked and
a man standing iu front of It who refused me
admission. While I stood there a man came
out from the hall and spoke to the doorkeeper,
telling him not to let any more persons in “till
our boys come.” I was consequently obliged
to loiter in the entrance some ten minutes till
“ our boys ” came up from the packinghouse.
That is all.

Yesterday forenoon, about eleven o’clock,
detective Asa WiUlanu was called by the As
sistant Postmaster, curt the boy, with the or
ders still in his possession, delivered into his
keeping. The former ollicer, after nn exami
nation of DeWitt. went with officer Nugent to
No. 205 Clark street and searched the premis
es. Two letters were found there, one in a
table drawer, and another in a small paste
board box. One of these letters was directed
to Messrs. Kelley it Co., Chicago, the other
to Mr. A. E. H. McDonald, box 2024, Chicago.
The officers thereupon arrested the mother of
the boy, and a Miss Emma Turner, the latter
being held at ilrst as a witness,and took them,
with the youthful defendant before Mr.
Hoyne. After hearing the testimony of
Mr. Armstrong, Assistant Postmaster, of offi
cers Williams andNugeut, that of Miss Turner,
Mr. Blind, a clerk iu the Yost-office, and a
plea for the prosecution by James A.Mnlll-
g aU} Esq., the mother, Mrs. Schreiner, and the
gi r j, Emma Turner, were held upon their own
recognizance iu the sum of £SOO each, and the
lad mSSOO, to appear for trial Tills action
was had out of charitable motives on the part
of the prosecution, as Mrs. Schreiner has a
younger child, a daughter of seven or eight
years of age, dependent upon her, and in
hopes that the mother and Miss Turner might
forfeit the:r bail and thus rid the city of their
presence and their Fortune Telling. It is not
absolute!}* certain that, should they remain,
they may not be convicted of participating
with the boy iu the commission of his crime
and the use of the proceeds. The extreme
youth of the defendant held to trial will keep
him from the State’s prison, and.pfobably con
sign him to the Ecform School, where it is to
be hoped he may leam better morals.

A meeting was held at Bryan Hall last ever,
lag, pursuant to the following call:
We, the undersigned Republicans of the
eity of Chicago, who have heretofore left all
political matters to politicians and editors,
(who, we think, have more or less alwavs mis
represented us.) deem it high time and'highly
important that a meeting be called to have
u lair expression on the political differences
that now distract and divide the country, and
believing tliat the series of articles emanating
‘ from the Chicago Tribene in regard to lion!
Wm. 11. Seward aad Judge Kdlogij is not en
dorsed or sanctioned by oue-tenth of the
Ji>publican* of the city, but, on the contrary,
that nineteen-twentieths of them arc willing
to abide by any fair adjustment of our differ
ences, and have full confidence in the ability
and patriotism of Hon. Win H. Seward, and
all otliers who truly have the love of the coun
try at heart, and arc willing, if need he, to
sacrifice all party interests lor our country’s
•We would therefore call a raeetimr, to be
held at Bryaa Hall, on Wednesday night, Feb.
BUh, ISOI, to take a fair crjtrmiou of the true
to-ntimeuts of the JtejmUiraus of Chicago. Wn
do not want to he forestalled in this important
expression of oiir true views, and would
•therefore respectfully request all professed or
aspiring politicians or editors not to interfere
or participate in the meeting, as we can get a
much truer expression of the people without
them. Then we say to all who have the love
of country at heart inore than party, to eome
up iu your (lift strength from tbe three, grand
divisions of the city, and lei us see how we
stand upon this important subject, and let us
publish to the world and send to our Repre-
M'utativcs iu Congress our true views, as they
may be expressed, and let tbe world knowthat
although wo are and always have been Repub
lican*, we arc not willing any longer that the
Tribune and kindred sheets shall represent
us. Come up, therefore, to the help of our
country agalnstthosc who would ruiu it rather
thannot hand the l 'poit/ul of jlesh”
The meeting was called to order at 10 minutes
after 7, by H. 1L Haaff, Esq., who nominated B.
FwMillcrd,Esq.,forChulrman. A gentleman in
the crowd nominated R. M. Hough, Esq., (of
Dupage comity) for Chairman.
u We will first pul the motion on the amend
ment," said Mr. Haaff il All who arc in favor
of Mr. R. M. Hough for Chairman of this
meet ing. wit I say Aye. All who are in favor of
Mr. I). F. Millerd for Chairman, say Aye.”
if, The Millerdparty proved to be in a majority
of about three to one, whereupon Mr. Millerd
took the chair. A moment later Mr. R. M.
Hough was seen making his way towards Mr.
Millerd in a excited maimer. Mr. R. M. llouih
collared Mr. Millerd and pushed him over
Mr.H. 11. Ilaalf promptly collared Mr. R. M.
Hough, and instantly the scuflle became
general. Twenty or thirty persons who
happened to be on the platform, “sailed In,’*
and Mr. Millerd, as soon as he could extricate
himself, resumed the chair. The “misundcr"
standing’’was speedily settled by Disappear
ance of Mr. T. B. Bryan, the xiroprletor of the
.Mr. Bryan urged all'persons present to be
mindful of their own dignity and of the dig
nity of Chicago. ITc said that the hall had
been hired by certain gentlemen for a specific
purpose. [A voice—“a meeting tor the Re
publicans of Chicago.”] Yes, continued Mr.
Bryan, a meeting for the Republicans of .Chi-
At this point the misunderstanding concern
ing the right to the Chair again took a practical
form, and Mr. U. M. Hough was observed in
the centre of the turmoil with his coat off.
The scuflle was of brief duration, and Mr. Haatf
took his stand ou the top of the "stage desk?
and proceeded to speak, urging the right of
the majority to organize the meeting under
the call.
Mr. R. M. Hopeh Ihenftnade a speech eon*
tending for the right oft he signers of the call,
and of liimsclfpurtiuilarly-, as the fin?! signer,
to organize the meeting.
Mr. Millerd next made himself heard, de
claring that while the honor of presiding over
the meeting had been unsought by himself,
he had been called to the chair by a majority
of the meeting, and he had taken it with the
11 rm resolve never to leave it alive until he
was put out of it by a majority vote. He
would nevertheless move that Mr. T. B. Bryan
be called to the chair. He would, be entirely'
satisfied with the chairmanship of any gentle
man who would not abuse his ‘power for the
purpose of falsifying the Republican party’ of
Chicago in this momentous crisis. He was
perfectly willing to let Mr. Hough or any gen
tlemen hold their own meeting, at their own
time, ami in their own place, If they would not
assume to proclaim their action as the action
of the Republican party of Chicago. Mr. Mil
lerd then read the call of the meeting, con
tending that it was not called as a pork-pack
ers’ meeting, or a Water street meeting, but
as a meeting of all the Repu’dieansof Chicago
There being evidence of a disposition to re
new the skirmish ou the platform, Mr. Bryan
directed the gas to be shut off. This was done
only partially, but the effect of the movement
seemed to be soothing—order was restored
and the gas relighted. About this time a large
unmber of Democrats pressed into the Hall,
and E. W. McComis of the Chicago Times
made his appearance and took a conspicuous
place on the platform.
The floor was again assigned to Mr. Hough, ‘
and he made a speech with more or less inter
ruption, of about twenty length. He
denounced the Chicago Tribune Iu good set
terms, and alleged that Mr. Millerd was an
editor of the said Tribune, (which Mr. Mil*
lard totally denied.) He asserted that Mr.
Kellogg’s amendments to the Consiiution pro
posed to x>rohiblt slavery north of 30 deg. CO
min. and to leave the people jierfectlyfnc to
establish or prohibit U south of that line.-
[lndignant cries of ‘‘ no, no.”]
Mr.-Haaff again took the stand to explain
the position of himself aud his friends, assert
ing loudly that he had uo other purpose iu
coming to the meeting than to prevent other
people from misrepresenting his sentiments.
If the signora of the coll wanted to express
their sentiments, why did they not limit the
meeting to persons holding their vines* To
his mind it seemed to be a purpose to steal an
expression ofsentiments as a member of
the Republican party, and he stood there to
protest against it aud to defy those who at
tempted it. [Loud applause.]
Dr. C. V, Dyer made himself heard long
enough to request that the call be read, and
that i/vl persons not included iu it leave the
room. This proposition was vehemently hissed
by the Democrats.
The turmoil now becoming intolerable.
Sheriff Hcsing made his appearance on the
stand, and stated that the gas would he turned
off iu just three minutes, and that the hall
must theu be cleared. A few persons made
their way to the door in expectation of a gen
eral crush, but the greater portion waited to
seethe game played out-apparently fearing
lest the meeting might still get organized, and
some action be taken adverse to their particu
lar views. At the expiration of the three min
utes, all the gas was turned off except the gal
lery lights. Still the crowd did not disperse—
those remaining in the body of the hall
Insisting loudly that the platform be vacated
first Acting upon this hint, Sheriff Hesing
aud half a dozen policemen proceeded to clear
the platform, which was done without any dif
ficulty or disturbance. The crowd then dis
persed in an orderly manner, and made a large
street mcetlug in front of the ball entrance,
where they were addressed by Mr. H. H. Haaff
| (Republican) and John Garrick (Democrat).
Mr. Haaff’s remarks were loudly applauded.
Mr. Garrick confined himself to a bitter de
nunciation of Sheriff Hesing. The point of
! his observations not being clear to the appre
hension of the multitude, there was little or
. no response.
So ended the meeting called in the name of
“the Republican party of Chicago,” to endorse
Mr. Kellogg and to denounce the Tribune. It
needs but a grain of common sense to see Hint
the whole disturbance grew out of an attempt
to pass a set of pro-slavery resolutions and
to father them upon all the Republicans of Chi"
cago. •

The Tiger Caged.
It bas been for the past threemonths known
to the City Marshal and some of his detectives,
that one of the rooms on the second floor of
Coach’s building-, on Dearborn street, oppo
site the McCardel House, was used for gam
bling purposes and frequented by a band of
fi-st class sporting men. But from the well
organized state in which this gang was found,
and the farther fact that their den was secured
from intrusion by an iron door, a great deal of
cantiou was necessary to bo observed in work
ing up the job, that the inmates might not
escape, or in some manner destroy all evi
dence of their nefarious business before an
entrance should be obtained. On Tuesday
night, however, at about the hour of nine, all
things being ready, and the tiger supposed to
be in active operation, a detachment of twelve
or flfleen policemen made a descent upon the
premises in as noiseless a manner as possible,
passed by the iron door, gained access to an
adjacent vacant room and suddenly burst open
a door leading directly into the presence of the
mysterious fraternity. Doubtless the thir
teen persons eontainedin that apartment were
somewhat surprised at the unexpected on
slaught of the police; but it is*not the charac
teristic ofagamblcrto show by action or ex
pression of countenance what he feds, and the
reception of the unceremonious visitors was
extremely cool and gentlemanly. All the ap
paratus used in M bucking the tiger*’was upon
the table, consisting of the sweat-cloth, coun
ter, deal-box, chips and other paraphernalia,
and the game was at a stand-still, and the
gamblers were carelessly strolling around the
place. One pack of cards was upon the “ lay
olf,” and the busy banker was counting bis
pile near by. The surrender was gracefully
and quietly made, the tools were gathered up
preparatory to removal, and the professional
moved—toward the Armory. Eacfc gaicCler
had the houcr of walking ami-in-mm with a
policeman, and afterwards ofrf»euding the
night iu the lock-up. .
\ An attempt was made about twelve
at night to pursuadethe Mayor to send foriTC
Police Justice, and let the prisoners plead,
pay their lines and depart. But the Mayor
was inexorable, lie probably recollected the
cliarge made during the past campaign, that
he was in league with gamblers, and he ad
vised them to be quiet iu their quarters until
morning. They were compelled to do so.
Yesterday morning the thirteen prisoners
appeared before Justice Aikin and all but two,
