revered In tbe old quarantine burying ground at
Tompkins Til le, Staten, Island, the body ot a
young woman, apparently about twenty-two

The roUcy Dealers Seeking Delay
The cue of John C. Chapman, charted
witbaeepioga place where lottery er policy
tickets are sold, was called up, and Gen. Hlnkle,
one of the counsel for the defendant, asked the
continuance ef tbe ease on account of the sickness
of his associate in the defence. District Attorney
Wells replied that every effort had been made to
bring these ease" to trial, and they were met by
delay constantly. When brought Into the Police
Court they came up on appeal, aad convic
tion bad been scored In one Instance, and that
was taken to tbe General Terra on apneal There
a motion was made for Its dismissal, and the pros
ecution furnished a brief oa sbort notice, and at
tbe same time tbe appellant admitted no stand
log, and agreed to come back to tbe Criminal
Court with another case, and there have the
legal points argued. This dlnerence occurs In
thcconitruettonof the statute, tbe policy deal,
ere maintaining that under the lottery act they
had a license permitting tbeeonduct of tbe bust
ness. While these appeals had been in abeyance,
the dealers in policy were still pursuing the same
pursuit, aod In fact had become bolder In their
operations, by putting persons on tbe street for
the disposal or tickets. They were debauching
the poor and needy, imposing upon the ignorant,
and if tbere wae any law to restrain them, it was
only justice that It should be enforced. Instances
wcreftequentandpoeltlre that tome of these par
tics had been convicted In the PollceOoartjetuined
to their policy shops and renewed operauons,bld
ding defiance to law. Tbe com to unity should be
Erotected,and demanded a settlement of the noes
on. He did net think Itjait to consent to these
Kstponements being continually asked for. but
llevcdlthls duty to preMtbem for trial. He
weald say that he was satisfied tbat Gen. Hlnkle
and his associates had requeued their clients to
dcslstfrom selling tickets while the trials were
pending, and they promised to do so, but failed to
keep their word.
Oen. Hlnkle said tbat he was ready and
willing to proceed, but did not think
It right to do so during the absence of
the leading counsel employed In the caso. He
would iay, howcTer. tbat he had onutloned bis
clients to cease selling tickets until tbe cases
weredlsposcd of and they had told him that they
would do eo. He bad no reason to believe tbat
they bnt violated their word. His Honor sild
tbat If these partus set tbe ease at defiance and
went on with their operations, regardless of tbe
suits hanging over, speedy action, tor the benefit
oi the community, ought to be promptly taken.
If the police should report thitt these shops are
now open and tbe policy business In operation,
ho would direct summary proceedings In the
Tbe eases on the calender were then passed
over until today.
WewTriata Uranted and Denied.
Judge Humphreys yesterday heard a motion
for a new trial la the casei of Wm. Sbaw, eon.
Ttctcdofrobberyon Wm. Chae,on the night of
Dee. Htb, 1879, and granted the application.
In tho ease or William Fltshugb,convlctedor
highway robbery en Donjamln white, Mr.
Campbell Carrlngton, his counsel, made an able
effort to secure a new trial on the ground of the
discovery ot Important evidence to tbe defendant,
which It was thought would materially alter
tbe appearance of tbe case and operate
to show tbe Innocence ot the man who has been
convicted or tbo cbarge. The affidavits Hied
tended to show tbat tbe chief witness for the gov
eminent had been guilty of perjury In tbe delivery
ef his testimony.
William Jackson, asiecl ate tntheflrlme with
T. W. Fltibugn, was represented by Mr. C.N.
Thomas, wbo argued for a responding of the ease
In tbe last Instance on tbo k round that the erl
dence did not in stain the verdict. The motion
was overruled. Wm. Jackson was previously sen
teneedtofonr years In tbe penitentiary, and tbe
same punishment was Impoiedon Wm. Fltshugh.
Mr. Carrlngton said that previous to the trial
he did not make much examination Into the ease.
but since then he bad given It his attention, and
was satisfied of his client's Innocence, and be
llered, ae Fltabugb did, that be was sending a
not guilty nan to the Penitentiary.
The court suspended the execution of the sen
fence In tho erne of Fltshugh for fifteen days to
allow an effort for pardon to be made.
William Reeves, colored, charged with burg
lary and larceny tn breaking Into the

Mosci Jones kept a little store at Mount Pleat.
ant,and done a stead yftbough not extensive trade.
Ue gained a livelihood, dealt honorably with his
customers and enjoyed the confidence of his
neighbors, la November last, a hog he had been
fattening was thought to be In primeoondltlon for
pork, and he was slaughtered, drcsiedand pat
away. He did not use the meat for the store, bat
supplied his eustom from the ordinary market.
Mrs. Mary Ann Ilolmaod dealt In hams, pork and
bacon In the market place, and It was reasonable
to suppose constantly kept her stock well up.
She sallied some itdes, and In searching
for them, Righted nnon the pork in
Moses little shop, a portion of which she de
clared to be her property, knowing It by certain
marks aad matching whererthe severance ef the
neck had beea made. She accused Moses of hav
Ing stolen ber pig, and the rase came up before
Judge Mac Art bur yesterday. Tbe testimony
was very piggish none or tbe witnesses squealed
however t and the dlicussioa over twe hogs for
tbe evidence shewed that there were two In the
case, made It douotful whether Mrs IHolmead's
pork bad got Into Jones larder or not. Ihe de
fendant proved a previous excellent character,
and tbe jury concluded tbat he had no more hog
than belonged to him, and therefore acquitted
him of the charge.
Iteturn the Court Tapers.
Some time since tbo Supreme Court of this Dis
trict, sitting in General Term, pasied an order
forbidding attorneys or other persons from taking
papers from the files In the Clerk's offlee,
and directing tbat all those having been with'
drawn be returned. Some of tbe lawyers here
compiled with tbe Instructions of thecourt, but
others have not, and an examination of the de
positaries for these records will show tbe receipts
of attorneys who hare thus far disregarded the
order. Instances occur frequently of parties who
hare been In tbe habit el taking papers for exam.
I nation, picking tbcm up and starting off, and
having to be reminded to return them. The
practice led te great Inconvenience to persons
wlihtng to examine the records, aad consequently
tbecauiofor Issuing the order forbidding their
withdrawal from the files. Those not obeying
should be compelled to do so.

Uandaomo Military Display.
In addition to tbe regular Monday morning
drill, the four companies of marines stationed at
tbe barracks adjoining the Navy Yard wsre re
viewed yesterday morning by the Secretary ef
The display was witnessed by quite a large
gathering of ladles and gentlemen, wbo were In
vited to attend. Nearly all ef the residents la
the neighborhood poured Into tbe barracks and
formed a semi-circle around the parade grounds.
At eleven o'clock tha marines were
called out npoa the parade grounds.
The marching, and rapidity of every movement
was the height of military perfection. Shortly
after 11 o'clock Secretary Bobesoa arrived aad
was conducted from the officers quarter! aorosi
the grounds, by Major Nicholson, temporarily In
command of the post.
The four companies, commanded respectively
by Captains Nokes, Williams, Good we 11 and
Goodall, went through many difficult evolutions
In a style that challenged admiration. Then the
companies were drawn up tn battalion line, with
colors flying. The Secretary, accompanied by Ma
jor Nicholson, advanced towards the line, which
was the signal for a salute from the Marine Band.
Alter an Inspection the line was broken Into eom
panics, and headed by the band.marehed In review
around the spacious grounds. The battalion was
commanded byiMaJor Haywood. Whentbe ser
vice was finished Majorllaywood commanding
put tbe men through a number of movements,
such aa marching by close column, changing rrontl
and marching companies by fours. A line of
battle was then formed, which stretched entirely
across tbe grounds. The movement was a beauti
ful one. Toe long line was perfectly maintained
during tbe whole of the march from one end of
the grounds to theotber and return. The Inspec
tion was closed with a dress parade.
