+NeW York, Ap+ilt10-Atle reulai monthly meeting of the Union league, this evening, which was largely attend ed, addresses were made` B; iI. w: ley and United States Satr o Minnesota. Judge Da.i tf@ d inr the absence of Mr. Evarts. Among other things, Senator Sabin said : . Much travel of late, severe bpsiness duties and slight illness have made me nearly a wreck-a wreck in all but my hopes for a republican victory this fall. Eighteen months ago it did not look so. But when ever I go over the eountry, I findlthe same spiritextant, and the same belief that the great republican party is again risen to supremacy. Not only are states in the Northwest sending us good reports, though the democrats have ex pected defection there, but there are prospects that we may carry Florida North Carolina, Tennessee and West Prospects in Virginia. NEW YORii, April 10.--Gen. V. D. Grover of Virginia, a warm personal friend of Senator Mahone, in referring to the political outlook in the "Old Do minion" to-day sata that the candidates and the platforms of the two great par ties would have a great deal to do, so far as the vote of Virginia is concerned, in November. If.the democrats nominate a free trade candidate at Chicago, backed by a free trade platform, then he had no doubt whatever that his state would go republican. "President Arthur," he said, "has hosts of friends in Virginia, but the del egation will not go to Chicago pledged for him or any other man. Our dele gates will go uninstructed. If it be comes evident that Arthur is the man who can win, the Virginians will stand by him. Blaine's followers are many, and very enthusiastic. It looks very much as though there would be two delegations, the liberals or coalitionists and the straight-out republicans. The tariff will overshadow all other issues in this canvass, It is the only issue on which the republicans can hope to win." Fined for Contempt of Court. ST. PAUL, April 11.-The case of the deputy sheriffs of Custer county, Mon tana, arrested at Brainerd last night, was heard at St. Paul this morning. James Conley was fined $100, Frank Conley $560, and Smith was discharged. Their fines were paid. Their prisoner, Lucius Stephen Taylor, is held here un der arrest by Sheriff Henry O'Gorman, awaiting action on the writ of habeas corpus. It may take ten days to settle the question, as testimony will probably have to be procured from :Texas. The three Custer county deputies remain here. .. ' "More Blaine Delegates.

The case of the Territory vs. Spaniard and Cream or White Antelope, for kill ing cattle, was called the first thing up on the reassembling of the court. Col. Donnelly defended the Indians, so far as defense was needed. Two witnesses were examined after which the prosecu tion rested. Col. Donnelly, without in troducing any rebutting evidence, moved that the case be dismissed on the ground that there was no evidence to sustain the charge and for the further reason that the court had no jurisdiction. The court then instructed the jury to return a verdict of not guilty, y which was done through their fore man, Peter Macdonald. .On motion of the district attorney the cases against Snake Chief and Big Young Man, for a like offense, were noile proved. The case of the Territory vs. William Moore, grand larceny, was next taken up, and a jury impanneled to try the a cause. It was allege that in February last Moore stole a horse of John Evans.
