Al though he did not desire to assume the role of a prophet, no man could tell what wou'd be the result. There are tome things, however, that could be sat isfactorily affirmed.

Colonel Grosvenor offered a resolu tion that the Convention" adjourn until ten o'clock to morrow, and that in the meantime the States select their repre sentatives to represent them. The motion ot . adjournment was about to be put when some one shouted a cry of ''Schurz," which was taken up and re sounded from all tiarls of the Hall.

No; they asked me if they could take a trip on the cutter. I told them yes. It was a request made and granted. Q How many Senators went aboard? A. I believe fourteen or fifteen.

After weeks of patient waiting npbn the part of the people and ctraniag dodg. ing by the pets of the Administration, the report ot the Congressional investi gation, into the troubles at New Orleans between Caset and the State authorities, has been published. We reproduce Ca set's testimony and, after perusing it, the reader cannot help expressing the belief, that Grant engineered the entire matter, r . iDIore Robbery. -The robbery of Goat Island in Cali fornia,' by the Central Pacific Railroad Company, passed the House of Repre sentatives on the 25th. ult. The whole proposition to give away Goat Island to the Central Pacific is so iniquitous and preposterous, , that it de ssrved to be hissed out of commit'ee rooms and oat of Congress with 6Corn. Mr. Wood pointed out,that it is 'delibe rately parting with the property of the people of the United States for no com pen8ation whatever.' And if the bill did j not do this, for the benefit of the Central Pacific, there would have been no .object, and no such pressure as there lias been, to pass it. : f There is a faint hope that the Senate will.refaso to sanction this robbery to enrich an insolent and domineering cor ration. "s . ' !X"The New York Tribune, the lead Ing Radical journal in the United States, contained an editorial a few days since In which occurred this pointed passage: ,'If this Administration can boast of nothing' else, at least it can say it has exceeded nil its predecessors in getting Into quarrels without cause, and out of tm without dignity."'

L. Walcott has received the appointment of Commissioner of Rail roads in Ohio cfc R- H. Harbisojc, deceased. 1ST Gov. Hoitman vetoed the new charter for New York City last week.- It was infinitely worse than Tweed's charter under , the provisions of which the tax pavers of the city were rbbed. The new charter was the work of the Committee of Seventy, .-who"" called themselves Reformers. Their ideas of reform were to turn one set of rogues out and let another set, themselves, in. The veto was sustained in the Legisla ture by a vote it 80 to 37. JE-Grant's offlciuls are shouting lus tily: "The Cincinnati. Liberal Conven tion don't attaonnt to anything" Just so; then why waste your breath t. yelling at it I Keep cool, officials ;, you are the worst whipped set of paid claquers the world ever despised. The People will dispose of your positions to honest men within the next year. . f t -0 ' v 1 m m m , , j '. jCSTThe post master editors of Radi cal papers inform the people 'that Grant is paying the debt...-.- ' rnloO . How much is Grant ror'th, that he can pay the debt of the Nation ? A very great many people tihink that they help to pay it, by paying enormous taxation upon everything they eat, drink and wear. ,3rArancsty, Honesty and Reform are not part of the policy of the. Grant party. Their record stands in flaming letters: Proscription, Corruption, and an abuse of power more flagrant than that of any Despotism upon the face of the earth. jC-9The Ohio Legislature neglected to fix a time for electing delegates to 5A dreadful tragedy occurred at Gunn City, Cass County, Missouri, on the 24th ult - A mob of about one hun drcd stopped , the train, removed therefrom three men, J.

DAMAGES FOR MURDER. A Son Sacs tlin Mayer of Ills Fn Iher for $50,O00. From the Louisville Ledger, April 27. Jefferson Court Common Pleas. Wm. Odell, an infant, by John Odell, his grandfather and next friend, vs. Conrad Kolh, defendant. In this case plaintiff sues for $50,000 damages for the elaying of his father, William Odell, by the defendant, Con rad Kolb, in this county, in March,1871. The suit is brought under an act passed and approved January 12, 18G6, which reads a follows : Sec. 1. That the widow and minor child or children (or either or any of them) ot a person killed by the careless or wanton or malicious use of fire arms, or other deadly weapons, not i self-defense, may have an action against the person or persons who committed the killing, aud all others aiding or promo ting the killing, or any one or more ot them, for reparation of the injury ; and in such actions the jury may give vin dictive damages. - "Sec. 2. This act shall take effect from its passage." This case has been on trial for several days, and the examination of witnesses closed last evening, and the case was adjourned over until Monday, at ten o'clock, for argument of counsel, and will be closed that day. The defense will be ooened by Mr. Ed. Parsons, a fine anl fluent speaker, who will be followed by Major Alf. H Peyton for plaintiff. Martin Bijur will then close for the defense, to be follow ed by Colonel Mare Munday for plain tiff, which concludes the case. This case is exciting an unusual amount of interest, being new aud the first of the kind ever triad in this Court It would not, at this time, be proper for u3 to comment, or to attempt to give the evidence in this case, as the jury has not yet had it, but we can safely say that it is a leading case, and one that the commuoitv and people throughout the State are vastly interested in, and the verdict of the jury is looked for with more than ordinary interest. TUE DROTHER-IN I,AW S CONFESSION. Q If thev should come into the Senate they would make a quorum, for i the ransaction of business, and the' wished to prevent a quorum until other Senators arrived ? A. One would nat urally suppose that was the reason. Q Do yon not know that was the reason ? A They said they wanted to take a trip in the cutter if I would al low them. I said yes, as I have often doncto parties before. (J. ion did not design, bowever,tuat they should take the same description of trip that other parties have done r A. I had not the impression that their pur pose was merely to take a pleasure trip. Q. 1 ou knew that their purpose was to .avoid making a quorum in the Sen ate? A. les, sir.

Not to my knowledge. Q. Was Col. Carter, at or inmedi atcly before the organization of the Legislature the 1st of January, holding an appointment in the Custom House? A.--1 es, sir. Q You say you know for what pur pose these Senators wanted to escape from the city ? A. From common re port and from having a knowledge f what was going on, of course, I knew generally what was supposed to be the object. Q Did yon not know it wa a viola tion of your duty as an officer of the United States thus to prevent the or ganization of a State Legislature ? A. Perhaps I did ; I did not think of it at the timo. Q Did you not know that you were abusing your position as a Federal offi cer, in attempting to control the local affairs of the State i A. No. I thought the affairs of the State were such that almost any means taken to remedy them would be a benefit to the country. A Later Troppnaan.

Q You have not made any explana tion to any officer of the Government? A. No detailed explanation. I may have mentioned some facts In connec tion with it. BUT TACITLY SANCTIONED THE OUTRAGEOCS USURPATION. Q Has the Administration appro ved your course here? A. I do not know. Q lias it disapproved it? A. 1 suppose the Secretary did, by ordering the cutter to be returned to New Or leans. Q. That is the only disapproval ? A. I do not think there has been any other. I have heard, of no other. Q To whom was that order sent, and by whom ? A. It was sent to me by Mr. Hartley, the Assistant Secretary of the Treasury. . Do you remember when you re ceived it on what day of the week ? A. No. Q Do you know whether the Ad ministration at Washington is acquaint ed with the purpose of those Senators in going on board ? A. I do not know. I should think they would, from the no toriety' that has been given to the fact. Q In writing to the President or to 1 any. member of the Administration, did yon state for what purpose they went onboard the cutter? A Not that 1 recollect. Q Wore you ever asked by any member of the Administration to state why they went on boaid the cutter and why they remained on board? A. I think not. - By Mr. Archer How many members of the Legislature were, in December or January, employees in the Custom House ?

By Mr. McCrary Do you know of any despatches sent to the Secretary from Pinchback in regard to the Sena tors on board the cutter r A I saw a publication in the newspapers that such a despatch was sent. I know nothing beyond' seeing the statement published By the Chairman State whether some of the Federal officers here take the ide of Gov. Warmoth and some the other side ? A. Yes, sir ; they are di vided in their judgment as to the merits of the case. . Those who also hold offi ce under Gov. Warmoth sympathize with him in the contest that is going on.

Q - You thought the property of the General Government could be used here in favor of one party or faction here, and against the other, without any de reliction of duty en your part ? A.I thought, nnder the circumstances, it could. Q What wsre the circumstances that led you to justify such conduct? A.' The object was to obtain a full rep resentation of Senators here, so as to see what could be done. Q. What business has an officer of the Federal Government to know wheth er there was a full representation in the Senate or not ? A. The same right that any citizen has. Q You, as a citizen, of course, have that right ; but would you have the right to use the people's property, the peo ple's ships, against the people, or any portion of them ? A. Men often make mistakes. Q You think, now, you did make a mistake in the course you pursued ? A. lf.it had net had -the e fleet of bringing this committee down here to investigate the condition of affairs here, it would not have accomplished the good results it has. . Q. The officers who were in charge of the Wilderness during the time those Senators were on board were the usual officers of the Government paid by the Government? A- Yes, sir. .r; Q. The Senators ate at the same ta ble with the officers of the cutter? A. I do not know. The custom has been otherwise when private parties have gone on board for a trip. They have had a separate mess from the officers. . Q Did you order the provisions to be sent to the cutter at your own ex pense before those Senators went on board ? A No. DID THE TEOPLE FOOT THE BILLS ? Q Were not provisions sent on ? A. I suppose 6o. The custom has been when the Collector tells the cap tain he is going to send parties on board for him' to buy provisions and have the bills 8t nt to the Collector. "Q Did Capt. Barr buy provisions in this case and have them sent on board ? A. Either he or his steward.I presume. Q And had the bills Sent to you? What did they amount to in all ? A. I do not know. I have not paid them all. ' Q.--If there had been no investiga tion, cid you intend out of your own pocket to pay these bills ? A. Certainty- Q Are you in the habit of inviting members of the Legislature on the Gov ernment vessels at your own expeuse ? A. Whenever any of them go on board the cutter they are entertained at my ex pense. Q Did they go on board Monday evening or Tuesday morning? A. I think Monday evening. Q When did you next see them ? A I forgot when I did next see '.hem I did not see them when thev returned. Q. Did you communicate your ac- j heard Jail Delivery In Utah Forty-five Prisoners Set at Liberty. Salt Lake CiTT.April 30 The Third District Court was opened this morning by the Territorial Marshal, instead of the United States Marshal. Judge Strickland announced that since the de c'sion of the Supreme Court, he would recognize the Territoral Marshal and Attorney as the executive officers of the court Assistant Attorney High presented a certified copy of the decision of the Supreme Court of the United States in the Englebrccht case, and, in conformity with the ruling therein, that the manner of drawing petit jurors since September, 1870, was illegal, moved for leave to enter a nolle prosequi as to all indict ments found in that time, and that the prisoners be released. The Court or dered a nolle prosequi to be entercd.and that the prisoners be turned over to the Territorial Marshal to be released during the day unless 6teps be taken to detain them. The number thus to be set at liberty is forty-five, including twenty -four ar rested for murder, ten for lewd and la civious cohabitation, two for adultery, three for riot, and three for libel. The Court also ordered the transferfrorn the United States Marshal to the Territorial Marshal of some forty prisoners char ged with various crimes, but not indict ed. All the prisoners under iudictment were released this evening by the Ter ritorial Marshal. 3Tlt has been discovered that the Adair Liquor Law is defective but whether the defect will render the law null and void is a question yet to be decided by the judiciary. The Uonstitulion of the State provides the enacting clause of a law shall read : Be it enae'ed by the General Assembly of the State of Ohio, etc. It is now dis covered the Adair' Liquor Law rends: Be it enacted by the Stale of Ohio, etc. This technical defect, it" is claimed by some, docs render the law null, but it will be well enough for all interested to await a test of the question, which will be made this week in several parts of the State where suits for damages are pending. No small amount of trouble and annoyance will follow the discovery of this flaw. Colonel McClure publishes a. letter in the Philadelphia Bulletin in which he says that he was released from all re sponsibility for the Republican party as now organized by the fact that during the late canvass 'it was proven from day lo day how the Custom-house, the Post office, the Navy-yard, the Arsenal and the revenue offices had vomited forth their repeaters, their perjured election officers, their leaders of gangs of rounders, their scieuced ballot-box stuffers, and their expert forgers of re turns" in order to defeat him and the reforms which he was pledged to carry out . .
