CRESTUNE, OHIO. Svedal Dispatch to The Chicago Tribune. . Crestline, 0., Jan. I.—There was a complete collapse of the strike 01 tho engineers on the Pittsburgh, Fort Wayne & Chicago Kail way at a late hour last eight. The strikers, seeming to be "animated by & desire to make amends for their bad behavior of the last few days, by STAUrCIO THE NEW TEAS ARIGHT, this morning exhibited tbo gratifying spectacle of every striker surrendering unconditionally, and aaking for employment at the 10 por cent re duction of pay. It is* believed that the Company will accept tbs tendcicd services of all but two or three of tbo ringleaders. A PECULIAR FEATURE OF THE SITUATION ia tbc creditable fact of tbo Company retaining tbo loyal freight-engineers in charge of tbo passenger-engines which they accepted and ran during tbc strike, iho repentant passenger-en gineers taking tbeir rank at the bottom of the list, and beginning to-day as f i eight-runners. A striking pasaenger-cngiccer of eighteen years' service in tbo Company took out afreight-traiu this morning, and another passenger-runner was the engineer of ono of tbo freights leaving for Alliance to-night. 100,000.00 10, 006.00 •5,191.89 380,630.76 TWENTY-ONE FREIGHT-TRAINS passed westward to-day, and nineteen were dis patched eastward. There is a little delay yet in consequence of tbo scattered situation of tbo men and engines, but by to-morrow tbo usual routine of tuo Company’s business will bo at tained. A very gratifying feature of tbo close of tbo rebellion is tbc resumption of work in every department of the Company’s gbo|'£ They begin to-morrow. THE PENNSYLVANIA RAILROAD. Special Dispatch to The Chicago Tribune. Philadelphia, Pa., Jan. I.—The officials of tbo Pennsylvania Ibiilway Company, state that the men aro now satisfied, in viowof tbo present financial depression throughout tbo country, that tbo reduction is not unreasonable, and have finally decided during tbo continuance of tbo financial troubles to agree to the reduction. No Committee of the locomotive engineers baa yet called at the Company’s office, nor is it behoved that any buch Committee will call, aa ail matters requiring adjustment on tbo lino of the railroad will bo settled by the officers of the different divisions. Tbo Company believe that all tbo men in tbeir employ Lave agreed to submit to the reduction. A general meeting of Iho engi neers will be held m this city to-morrow, to take action in relation to submitting the question of reduction to a Board of Arbitration, .350*000.00 15,U51.5S THE C. ( B. & G. ROAD. Special Dispatch to The Chicago Tribune. Aurora, 111., Jan. 1. —TUo employes at Aurora feel quite indicant that the Times should have conveyed the idea to Mr. Hairis that any strike was intended, and unite in their acknowledgments of the correctness of The Tribune's report of their meeting. The men who aie drawing largo pay can stand to have it cut down,—that is, they can Jive, —but the poor unfortunate whoso labor under the present reduction pays him but SI or 61.10 a day with which to support a largo family fares badly, and meets with general sympathy. The men fail to see any necessity for reduction of their pay. The road never did such a good business at this season of the year, and, while usually storms add to their expenses thousands of dollars, the mildness of the weather enables them to run as economically os in July. The idea is cx pi eased. Why do the Company discriminate, and, if hard times are the trouble, cut down ail hands ? INDIANAPOLIS. Special Dispatch to The Chicago Tribune. Indianapolis, Jan. I.—The situation of the strike is unchanged to-day, but with the engi neers evincing more determination than over to carry their point, although the}' claim to have taken such measures os will prevent further van dalism upon the property of the Company. Tho Brotherhood held a meeting this morning, and it is whispered that they are in receipt of intelli gence from Pittsburgh that their Committee was in consultation with the railroad management, the latter showing signs of being sick of their rebellion. It was also firmly expected by them, in caso a compromise was not mode, that A GRAND STRIKE would take place ou the Pennsylvania Central and Lake Shore Roads. All passenger-trains on the Pan-Handle route axe running except the night-express, and freight baa also commenced moving. Tho Vincennes & Jefferson is miming along to-day, as they did yesterday, and there is NO MOLESTATION upon any part ot tho line. Tho lust of the Indianapolis troops at Logans port came homo to-night. DENNISON, OHIO. Special Dispatch to The Chicago Tribune. Dennieon, 6.. I)cc. 31.—The atnke at this point began showing signs of weakness last night, and this morning tho Company’s offices were thronged by the strikers, all anxious to re turn to duty on the Company's terms. The Company is only hiring such of the old engineers os they see fit. Several freight trains bavo left here to-day in charge of old engineers, and more will co to-night. It is an unconditional sur render on the part of the strikers. RICHMOND. IND. Special Dispatch to 77\c Chicago Tribune. Bzohmcnd, Ind., Jan. I.—The day bos passed off very quietly, there being no new develop ments concerning the stilko, and the observance of the day being confined to a general suspen sion of business. Cincinnati. 0., Jao.

WASHINGTON. Articles ol Impeachment Against Judge Bustecd. He Is Charged with Bribery and Mis appropriation of Bunds. Secretary Richardson Exercised About Retrenchment. Special Dispatch to The CJiieaoo Tribune, proposed nu'EAcmiENT op bcsteed. Washington, I). C., Jan. I.—Articles of im peachment in the case of Justice Bustecd, of Alabama, will be prepared and presented by the week after nest. It is thought the charges will bo that ho has never been, and is not now, a resident of Alabama; that ho is guilty of re ceiving a bribe, the specification being that ho was paid §50,000 for throwing tho Meridian Eailroad into bankruptcy; and that he has ap propriated public funds to bis own use, in that on one occasion ho procured tho payment of a thousand dollars of fines and penalties, tho propeity of the United States, in tho hands of a United States Marshal, to set tle a suit brought against him. There are a great many other charges, equally susceptible of proof, and equally criminal, which might be brought against him, but it ia tyslioved that those mentioned will bo sufficient for the purpose. "When tho Alabama A Chattanooga Eailroaa was thrown into bankruptcy by Busteed, ho required of the' State a deposit of §OO,OOO to secure the in terest of the State. Beady casn not being avail able, tho Governor ’deposited §IOO,OOO of State bonds with Judge Bus iccd. Bustced took these bonds to Nov/ York, where ho deposited them as collateral for a loan •of §60,000 from one of thirty banks, with which ho went on a tour to Europe. The State was afterward compelled to redeem tho bonds. Bustecd’s home is in Staton Island, and ho remains there when his court ia not in session. Ho has written a magniloquent letter lately, declaring hia intention or coming here at once to face L:a accusers. It is not now believed that ho will resign. Ho prefers rather to brave tho storm. ; He ia said to have made all his enangcmfiiits, however, to resume law-practice in New York Citv, which ia taken as evidence that ho expects to bo impeached with out doubt. A RETRENCHMENT MEASURE. A conference ia said to have been held yester day between Secretary Bichardaon and Second- Comptroller Biodhead, at which it was decided that fer the present, at least, no payments would bo made from the Treasury on any accounts in which it is possible to stave them off. What the exact significance of all tbieis will be developed, but it may bo that Ilichardsou conceives it to bo a retrenchment measure. I'Jo the Associated Press.] new vear’s reception. Washington.

After tho reading, Deputy Warden Hall aston ished the crowd by remaining; “All I have to sav ia, the jury won’t lose anything by their verdict.” There is groat dissatisfaction with the conduct of the investigation, and the opinion is general that tho verdict is a whitewash. The question will come before the Grand Jury, where It is hoped the whole question will be thoroughly sifted. The propriety of tho abolition of the Board of Penitentiary Commissioners is being freely discussed, and it is understood the matter will be presented to the Legislature at its coming session. The constant interfering of tho Com missioners with the discipline of tho institution is urged as one cause, while another is public economy. The Commissioners, three ia num ber, are’paid §1,500 a year and traveling ex penses, and they moot once a month. The ab olition of tbc Board would save tho State not lea than §IO,OOO per year.
