Justice Shea's Office Yesterday Afternoon.
If canvas had been thrown over J ustlce Shea's
office, on Four-and-a-balf street, about 4 o'clock
yesterday arternoon, it couldn't have contained a
better circus, on a small scale, than what was
going on there about that time. The oscaslon
was a suit in which Charles Trainor, John Irving
and Wm. Beek were plaintiffs, and C. O'Brien,
the manager ef Barnum's circus, the delendant.
The plaintiffs, whose counsel consist sd of Messrs.
B. H. Webb, John A- Clarke and T. F. Miller,
claimed that they were employed In Philadel-
hla by O'Brien's agents, and that on Tuesday
ist, since their arrival here, he discharged them
without pay, which the defendant's conoid,
Messrs. Drury and MeConnell, offset by stating
tbat circus men employed early in the season
never got anything but board until the canvas
Is spread for the first time, after which their
wages commence. Although the Justice did bis
utmost to keep order, and partially snoeoedeJ, it
was at times difficult to tell whether lawyers or
witnesses (the latter all circus roughs) ha 1 the

especial notice, as In consequence or the Illness of
Miss Clara Wilson, who had rehearsed tne part
or Lucretla Borgia, she wasealled upon to aether
Eart with less preparation than the others, but
er success was great.
After a short Intermission the declamation,

slon than Pror. Jos. Ad. Thomson, who give a
great deal or bis time to the preparations, which
were wholly under his direction.
TEST OF THE FIRE DPAErMEHT.
Contest Eetween Nos. 4 and 5 Engines-Exciting
yesterday morning, at 4 o'clock, a test of the
powers of Nos. 4 and 5 engines was made on
Twelflk street, irom the plug on the corner of
Twelfth and D streets. No. 4 is a rotary engine,
built by tbe Seneca Falls Manufacturing Com
pany, and No. 5 Is a piston engine, built at the
Amoskeag Company's Works, of New Hampshire.
In order to give an Impartial test of thjse en
gines tbe foremen or Nos. 1, 2 and 3 and tbe fore
man ot the Truok Company were selected as
Chief Engineer Cronln took charge or the en
gines, and Assistant Chief Drew had control of
the pipes. The Henry Addis in (No. 5) was tho
first In service, and through 750 teet cf hose and
1-Inch nestle she threw a stream 113 feet, and
was Increasing when a section or the hose bursted.
No. 4 was next put Into service, and with the
same amount ol steam threw trom lVJ-lnch nosile
and 500 feet ot hose 102 feet. Two hundred and
fifty more feet of hose was added with the same
nonle, and she threw 105 feet. The hose was re
duced to 3)0 feet with an 1 nonle, and 168 feet
was throwe; an 1-inch nuzile was next put on
tbe 00 feet or hose, and 160 feet were throwa.
Thebcse. 300 ieet, with a 1-lneh noxzle, was
attached to No. 5 engine, and with about eighty
pounds or steam threw 185 feet. The nstiie was
changed to 1 inch, with the samo length of hose,
and 1S3 feet was thrown. This concluded the
lest, which was very satisfactory, and clearly
demonstrated that a better stream could be ob
tained from a large than a small noxsle.
Mr. Thomas L. Hume, ot the Board of Fire
Commissioners, was present, and gave the test
his closest attention, showing conclusively that
he Is a faithful member of the board and ready
to render the District service In bis capacity as
commissioner, even If it does require his arising
from his bed at an early hour or the morning.
Tbe presence or the engines 03 tbe street at so
early an hour attracted but few to witness the
operation until belore tbe close or the test, when
there was quite a largo concourse or peoale In the
vicinity. As a matter or course, there were in
the gathering persons who held an attachment
ror one or the other of the engines, and their
anxiety for the success of their favorite was made
manliest. Tbe members of the two enmpantes
were eager for the fray, and worked manrully.
tven the horses seemed to have a feeling of pride
In the contest.
Numerous boxes of cigars were bet on the re
sult, and In some Instances bottles or wine. The
object or the test was to ascertain which or the
two engines (both being considered very power
ful) might be used In case a stream was needed to
be thrown a long distance. The average amount
of fleam used during test was eighty pounds.
THE BITE OF BAPTISM,
According to the Swedenborgian Faith.
A very Interesting and novel ceremony took
p'ace Wednesday evening In the main ball of the
Washington Business, college, being no more or
lessthan the baptism of Henry C. Spencer, Jr.,
aged two months. In tbe Swedenborgian faith.
Tne rite was witnessed by the congregation of
the Society of the New Jerusalem, tbe students
or the college and a number of Invited guests.
Consul Genera! Hits, Dr. Chas. E. Prentiss and
Prof. J. W. Hnnt were among those in attend
ance. The service was opened by a chant by the
choir: "Thou dost visit the earth and water It."
The minister, liev. J bcz Fox, read an extract
trom tbe writings or Swodcnborg, on the effects
or good impressions received In childhood. The
choir then sang "Precious Jewels." During the
singing Prof, and Mrs. Spencer advanced down
the centre aisle, the Professor bearing In bis arms
his Infant son, tbe most Important personage In
tbe ceremony. When the parents were seatei
the minister rose and said "Hear now the teach
ings of the Seer of the New Dispensation co:
cerning this sacrament."
He then read another extract fromSwedenborg,
setting forth tbat the ordinance of baptism In
tended as a sign tbat tbo person baptised belongs
to tbe Church, and for a memorial that he is to
be regenerated; that when lnUnts are baptised
acgels are appointed over them by the Lord, and
that the first ue of baptism Is introduction Into
tbe Christian Church, and at the same time inser
tion among Christians In the spiritual world.
The child was then presented to tne minister,
who s sked tte parents if they destred and Intended
this child brought up In tbe knowledge and ac
knowledgment ef the doctrines or the Church, and
in a lire according to them, to whlob they respond
el affirmatively by inclining their heads. The
minister, alter repeating tbe Lord's prayer, re
ceived the babe In his arms, and touching Its fore
head with water, said, "Henry Caleb, thou art
hereby baptised Into the name of the Father, and
or the Son, and or the Holy Spirit. Amen."
Having returned it to the mother, he placed his
hands on Its head and said: "Tbe Lord bless thee
and keep thee; the Lord make his face to sbtoe
upon thee and be gracious unto thee; the Lord
lift uphls countenance upon thee and give thee
peace! Amen." The congregation then rose,
and the minister said: "We reoelved this child, so
baptised with water. Into the Lord's Charch on
tbe earth as an earnest that by the baptism of
repentance and regeneration he may be received
Into the Lord's kingdom In the heavens."
Tbe minister then made a brier address to ths
parents, charging them with the spiritual care of
the child, after which he pronounced the benedic
tion. The event was then celebrated by refresh
ments and dancing. Congratulations were ex
tended to tbe Professor ana his wire for possess
ing such a boy, who, no doubt, will make a fine

SUFFOCATED TO DEATH.
Particulars of the Death of the Late Albert
Bates in Japan Funeral Services and Burial
The particulars ef the recent sad death of Al
bert Bates, ol this city, which occurred In Yeddo,
Japan, on Jaunary 13 last, hare been received
here. Deceased was a native of East Washing
ton and a son ol Dr. J. E. Bates, druggist, and
went to Japan about three years ago with the
American party consisting ofAlr. Horace Oapron,
Dr. Thos. Antlsell, Mr. George B. Williams and
others, since when he has been engaged there in
school teaching. Although only twenty years
old at the time or his death he gave promise ora
bright future in the land of bis adoption. It ap
pears that on January 13 last, about 9 o'clock a.
m he rode out in the country, intending to re
turn at 2 p. m., at which time he ordered a warm
bath to be ready, baths in that country being
made warm by charcoal burned In Iron vessels,
which are Immersed In tbe bath tub. Un his re
turn his horse became so unruly that bo was de
layed until about b p. m when, arriving at the
house, he Immediately repaired to tbe bath-room,
little dreaming tbat the small close apartment
was by that time fall of the deadly fumes of char
coal. Alter being In the room about twenty minutes,
the servant, fearing something was wrong, called
help, and forcing the door found the young man
on his knees In the bath tub, the upper portion of
his body thrown forward, and his head complete
ly below the surface or the water. The servants
took him out Immediately, when a Japanese
doctor, who arrived first, and Dr. Antlsell after
wards, pronounced him dead before even his re
moval Irom the tub, and that be had gradually
sank into the position in which he was found from
suffocation by coal gas, a lact which was eon
firmed by subsequent spots on the body, caused
by the poison gradually expelling Itself. The
body was embalmed by Dr. Stuart Eldrldge, for
rrrrly at the Agricultural Department, and
placed In a metallic coffin. The luneral took
place on the next day, (January It,) and was at
tended by all tbe Americans residing lathe vicin
ity, as also numberless Japanese friends of the
deceased. A feeling address was delivered by
Dr. Antlsell, and the religious services were con
ducted by Rev. Mr. Saper, formerly a minister In
this District, after which the remains were In
terred In the American cemetery at Yokohama.
AN INCOMPEiENT NUESE.
She Gets Drunk while Attending an Infant.
Another Instance of the carelessness or parents
in securing nurses for their children was shown
yesterday, and demonstrated the fact that many
lamlllesare unaware of the attention the ser
vants employed for the purpose give their chil
dren, where they are taken and Into what society
thrown. About t o'clock yesterday afternoon the
officers at the Central guard-house and mer
chants doing business in that vlcintty noticed a
colored woman near the corner ol Ninth street
and Louisiana avenue staggering drunk. In her
arms she carried a white inrant, two years old,
which was in peril of lire by the unsteady steps
and movements ol the woman, who was unable to
control herself, much less protect the babe. She
was taken tu tbe station, but liquor had so com
pletely gained control of ber tongue as to mako
it almost impossible to understtnd any of the
words she mumbled out In a disconnected way.
Where she lived and to whom tne child belonged
It was difficult to ascertain, and finally Officer
Dubois took the Infant In his arms and directed
the unfaithful nurse to go home and he would
follow. She managed to navigate with consid
erable difficulty, but at last brought up at the
house orMr. J.owry, on Maine avenue southwest,
where It was round that the parents of tbe babe
resided, and who were rejoiced at Its return. The
nurse having been out with it during the entire
day, the family had become alarmed at her con
tinued absence, fearing that harm might have
belallen the two. They were greatly astonished
at the condition of the woman, and will probably
profit by the lesson, and cotagaln trust their little
one In the charge ol incompetent hands.
There are other cases dally of neglect of chil
dren by servants, and the carrying of them to Im
proper places where they desire to visit, and take
them simply because It acts as a cloak to deceive
the family In which they are emploved, or they
cannot go without the child Intrusted to their
A Handkerchief and Suspenders Used as a
Yesterday afternoon Officer Longstreet brought
William Carr, a painter well known to the com.
munlty, to the Central guard-house on the
charge of being drunk and disorderly. What
ever evidence was requisite to sustain the latter
charge, no doubt existed, from observation, of the
truth of iLe former. The accused was registered

charge of the accused. The Commissioner deliv
ered the following opinion:
"Tbe Government seek to hold the defendant
ror tbe action of the grand Jury upon a charge
disclosed by the affidavit filed belore me. noon
which the warrant or arrest was predicated, that
tho defendant, James Van VIeck, on or about the
4th day or February, 1S75, at the county or Wash
ington, u. C, did promise, offer and give, and
caused and procured to be promised, offered and
given, to Chester M. Colt, being then and there
an officer of the United States, be, the sum of

Celt as such officer, &c. And the affidavit recites
In detail tbe object for which Coifs assistance was
sought and tbe circumstances under which It was
rendered, and tbat It was to aid la tbe filing and
recording of false and fraudulent proposals for
mall contracts to Inure to tbe benefit of James J,
Hinds and William D. Kettle, mail contractors,
upen certain rates numbered In the Informa
tion. The gravamen of the charge Is the prom
ising, offering and giving, and causing and
ptocuring to be promised, offered and given
money to a United States officer to Influence his
official act. In this case It Is not claimed by the
Government that the defendant promised, oifered
or gave money to Colt, and one only pertinent
inquiry Is did he cause or procure to be promised,
oifered or given money to Colt for the purposes
Indicated In the charge. The testimony shows
that Wm. 1). Kettle cormplly availed himself of
the services or Colt, and shows tbat Kettle was
Introduced to Colt by Van VIeck, the defendant,
and that Van VIeck was present at subsequent
Interviews when money was paid by Kettle to
Colt, tut does not show that the money was pro
cured to be promised, offered and given to Colt
by this defendant Van VIeck. It Is cleartbat
tbe corrupt compact was entered Into and nego
tloted by the witnesses tbemsevels, Colt and Ket

have been held upon the testimony or the other,

THE BISDS CASE.
Tbe case of Hinds was then taken up, and the
following testimony was given:

his business to Indorse the btdsand by this means
he became acquainted with all the names and
amounts of the bids from Texas. He received
money from Kettle on giving this information.
Cross-examined: Witness considered the money
received from Kettle not as pay for the Informa
tion, but merely as a loan, lie fully Intended to

without giving any due-bill; had lent over (150 in
that way. He never expected now to get his

The ease of Hinds for corrupting Rothrock was
then taken up.
Mr. Rothrock testified at first as to his duties,
and then that Hinds had some weeks ago got
acquainted with him. Hinds wished the witness
to give him some information, and asked him to
come up to his house, on Rhode Island avenue,
and gave him fifty cents to pay his fare. He
went out there one sight, and Hinds told him he
wanted witness to detect circulars sent to the
1'ost Office Department by Eldredge and others,
and take them out of the mall before delivering
and bring them to him. He would then give
witness thirty dollars per month and have him
promoted, lie also wanted the witness to put
some bids in the lettlngs. Witness used to be
employed to open tte mall at the Fost Office De
partment. AXTEDILUVIAX BIOttKISCJrsCES.

concerning defects. of his memory, saying that
they would now talk about metaphysics.
Witness. Sometimes, when I safler Inwardly,

The cross-examination was lengthened ont by
the witness detailing every circumstance con
nected with every movement he made. Atone
time he sought to give tbe location or some
springs In Alabama. This was objected to.
Mr. Cook. I think the geography of Alabama
is an Important element in this case.
Witness had sought promotion; did not expect
tbe aid or SenatorSpencer; witness thoughtSpen

beneath him. Once witness tied his horse In
front of the Post Office Department; witness had
sever tied a horse before, and when Second As

The standard remedies for all diseases or the
lungs are Sctirsck's Pulxostic HTRur,
Sciiesck's Sea-Weed Tome and Scnaxcx's
Mahdrake Pills, and, lr taken before the lungs
are destroyed, a speedy cure Is effected.
To these three medicines Dr. J. II. Schenck, of
Philadelphia, owes his unrivalled snecess In the
treatment orpulmonary diseases.
The Pulmonic Syrup ripens the morbid matter
In the lungs; nature throws It off by an easy ex
pectoration, for when the phlegm or matter Is
ripe a slight eough will throw It off, the patient
has rest and the lungs begin to heal.
To enable tbe Pulmonis Syrup to do this,
Sehenck's Mandrake Pills and Sebenek's Sea
Weed Tonle must be freely used to cleanse the
stomach and liver. Schenek's Mandrake Pills
act on the liver, removing all obstructions, relax
the gall bladder, tbe bile starts freely, and the
liver Is soon relieved.
Schenek's Sea-Weed Tonle Is a gentle stimulant
and alterative: the alkali of which It is com
posed mlxeswlth the food and prevents souring.
It assists the digestion by toning up tbe stomach
to a healthy condition, so that tho food and the
Pulmonic cyrup will make good blood; then the
lungs heal, and the patient will surely get well If
care Is taken to prevent fresh cold.
All who wish to consult Dr. Schenck, either
personally or by letter, can do so at his principal
office, corner ot Sixth and Arch streets, Philadel
phia, every Monday.
Schenek's medicines are sold by all druggists,
