The follow, log additional facts In the case of the defaulting City Treasurer are made pub. Ho this morning: ' 4 ' Wednesday evening Mr. Henry W. Box, a prominent lawyer, went to Mr. Boik's office, under a previous engage ment, to accomoanr bim to New York, and from there took a carriage for the depot. On the way Bork remarked that "he had many things to say to him about l .' , ; . 1 V . . 1. I uusiueHS, snu just umuie reuouiug iuu New York and Erie depot said he was not going to New York, and said he wished Box to accompany him as far as the Suspension bridge. Mr. Box, being financially interested and a personal friend) consented to ac company him, and on the train he placed in his hand a general assignment of all his property for. the benefit f his cred itors. The assignees named were Henry Yr". Box, attorney at law; John McManns, real estate agent; Alexander Martin, insurance agent and Geo. Boldus, con tractor. . . . He also placed in his hands several papers, two one hundred dollar bonds belonging to the City Treasury, and several notes of George Bolders, the amounts of which he had received in payment ot taxes. Mr. Bork gave to Mr. Box an estimate ot the amount of his detault at $300,000. He did not assume te be exact in his figures, and Mr. Box was disposed to think the deficit in the treasury will, not fall much short of $350,000. 'roe embezzlements began, aoooramg to his confession to Mr. Box, soon after entering upon his duties- as Treasurer, ana contiuueu uninterrupted tnrougu bis term, extending over a period of four years. . - The deficit he considered about equally divided between both terms, each set of bondsmen being liable tor about an equal amount. Buffalo, Deo. 31. Further develop. meats in the Bork defalcation case show a worse stale of affairs than was at first thought to exist. The city is sate, as the. bondsmen are good, but the bank ol Lyon & Co.: is bankrupt, with heavy liabilities. NEW. YORK. The Weather Ushering In Ceuteii- tenuial Year Marine Matters.

Not so the eyes of the roy storing band of bard-drinkers, who last night oelebrated the jolly jam boree sligktly in advance of the pro gramme, and as a natural consequence round themselves confronting His Honor from anxious seats on the criminal's bench, nervously awaiting -their doom. Tbe good Judge was in a kindly humor; no doubt his imagination was busily en. gaged in trying to grasp the immensity of the procession to-night, in which an admiring public will behold, for the last time in a hundred year, tbe noble form of Mayor Johnston glued to the baole of an eiepbant, followed at close order by Major Travis: on a trick mule, while Tom Campbell and Jimmy Fitzgerald brins up the rear, holding aloft in the midnight air a banner with tbis device: "Bold Mashers of the Police Varieties." It was a pleasant thing to think of, ap parently, for as the good Judge climbed to. the judgment seat a smile was seen to spread itself over his handsome taoe like butter on . a red-hot griddle cafe. But thrusting baek the tide of pleasing anticipations that" surged ; wfliln hi,. barnenod bis nencil." peered over the" desk and said to Charley Callahan, "Let no gilt-edged man escape," and the war- ig began. .. a he first man who felt the weight of tbe judicial paw was a boy; Ban 'Wil ming was asked to explain the reason . why be found it so funny to agitate . Fred Miller's quiet household on Logan streetwith apateotdoor-knockeknownr among other bad boys as a "tick-tack.",-He became sadly' tangled in the recital and before he got through the Judge marked on the "bis book $1 and costs. "John Victor, weal's your age V : -"Twelye years, sir." - " ' . "Tbis case looks bad for you. Johnny.. They say here you stole tour bags of " airs." "Yes, so I heard." ' . "Well, what do you say about' itf : "NothlnV .- "Well. vou'Il tiiko a. Victor.lous ridd to the fiefuge," and the motherless boy' wok a seat on yie rag-gea eage or tne' bench, and wiped away a tear with the tail of his tattered coat. . "Please, Your Honor, lemme go this time, dear. I'm goin' to swear off in the raoruin', and if you ever see me here. aiiber the jumooree, why, thin seoa me, up for a year," - Thus spoke Mary Good-t win, wno was oaugut last nigut stagger ing through Bucktown, trying to extract comfort Irom a stump, of a villainous cigar, and between putli, making things howl with her brazen tongue. - ' "Mary." said His Honor, "go pay o-. and don't illuminate again until twelve o'clock to-night." The neighborhood oi court street tor years was a pattern of quiet'. When ' Mrs. Byan with her obildren moved there, things took a twirl, as it were, for the worst. Mrs. Jennings has a fam ily, too, and the children of each seem to nave enterea into a compact to cieauv out eaob other. From the looks ot that bunch of fluffy red hair whioh was shown, as evidenee in Court, it would appear that tbings are getting serious. His , Honor giving eaou party a wholesome lecture, they departed. .. Mary O'Brien then issued from tbe sardine box.. Mary's face ' was so scratched and ill-looking, she looked aS though She had been tired through a glass raetory. tier oia enemy, rum, has made a severe attack upon her, and she fell. To-morrow while all her boon compan ions will be filling their skins full, pre paratory to their annual swear-off, poor, Mary will be wrestling with her grief in - tue W oi it-house, it is sad. Here, the curtain falls. At the close of the per formance, the four kings ot the Court, John Bender, Frank Ramsey, Johnny Ostendorf aud Jack O'Shaughnessr (there's nothing small about Jack but his name), joined hands and circled around tue s weat-oox ana sang in uuicet strains the following: . , THE TEN-CENT-IAL. .
