In order to give the names of the parties In thcae ) cars wno inruiauea tne names or tne parties who gae the corrupt bills. Nearly every person who furnished supplies had friends In tho King. Tho supervisors directed tho said mend to put 13 per cent, on the bill, ana this percentage was kept by the King. In 1870 this percentage drifted entirely Into Tweed's hands Ila said ho made an arrangement with ingersoii, watoou a km. ana uarnr ror the percentage. The bills were rabed 20 per cent., ot it men iv per oem. went to tne iting. curing tne tast tew years lAimmings ap proved certain bills, and when paid handed the percentage ocr to wit net. Of the six supervisors, whoever received It divided It. giving 31 per cent, to each. The constrnctlon of the court-house passed from tho supervisors to the commission, and back again to the su pervisors. The bills for material by Cornell 3t Co. and East Chester Company were fraud ulent, also, Barnard & Co. Brigga supplied some of the marble, bat his bills were not raised, and no percentage was allowed. The Supervisor did not levy percentage on salaries of county officers, as they were mostly friends, and nothing was paid for raising their salaries. No money waa paid for appointing Gideon J. Tncker surrogate, or for appointing Recorder iiacxeu. witness uaa nothing personally to do with sherifTs bills. Knows or no money belog spent In connection with any of tho sheriffs. O'Brien's bills wero very mnch in oxcessoranypald unto that time, Tbesupervl son passed everr bill of the sheriff. Mr. Blxbi represented to Itness that if he bought half of O'Brien's claim they would gctUr.Tlldcn and Geo. Harnett to let np on him. Did not think Mr. Tildeu did let up on him. That was one of the many times he (Tweed) was fooled. Case waa then adjourned until Satur day, BAD MAIL SERVICE.

A letter from Havana .dated September 8, says: Complaints In regard to the negligence and bad service of tho Havana post office aro becoming numerous. SInco the treaty of Berne was extended to Cuba, tho public aro obliged to send their correspondence to that office, where It is sorted by the employees, utterly Ignorant of geography, and especially of tho geography of tho United States. The directions giren by them to letters would bo ridiculous, wore it not that the loss-s thus oc easlonod aro cry serious. It Is possible that letters addressed to New York, Philadelphia, Baltimore and Washington may reach their destination, as thoso places aro mentlonod in the Spanish school geography, which some of these gentlemon havo studied, but when letters aro addressed to any other of tho many thousand post offices In tho United States thoy are more likely to go to Spain, Germany, Franco, England, or anywhere else than to their destination. Letters addrossod t j places in tho Southern States usually reach their destination via Loudon, Liverpool, or Paris. Iu faet the matter Is becoming Intolerable. It Is for tills reason that mauy partlca prefer to send their correspondence outside of tho malhi, especially such as contain remittances. Tho fact Is tho treaty of Borno ought nover to have bcon extended to Cuba, and if the wishes of the mercantile public bad boon consulted It noer would have been Under the old sys tem tho malls wore either mado up In tho diflerent consulates or tho correspondence was dropped Into the bags at tlie offices of tho con signees of steamers, aud an tntanco of a letter going atray waa rarely known. This man agement waa satiedactory to our merchants, for they wero always morally certain that let tew coutaluing remittances would not fail to reach their address In due time. Usnalnaze on letters leaving, as well as coining to tho Island, has always been in vogue here, as nny person who hai Ihed In Cuba during tho past nve jenrs con attest.

The CorarnMoner of Patents on yestenUy submitted to the Pccretarr of the tntetlor aaehrd- ute statement showing an avetagelncreaie in the efficiency of the convicts in his buickuofuttr thirty Ore per centra compared with tint of April hut. In thliitatomentthe exact amount tf work done by each com 1st is fully ut forth, by reason of the system of account kept with pauut attorneys for copies of papers supplied Hereto fore the grades of copyists as fixed by law hate Doen ito, soo and rs per month.

Secretary Schurs, how- ever, hu decided upon a new theory fully In keep- log with his civil icn Ice roform, which grades the salary of each clan of copyfita according to the amount of work performed, and as the exact number of words copied each day become a mttterof record, so as to be charged at the ra'o often cento a folio agalnut the party for whom tho copy li made, It la quite an eay matter to decide upon the merit i of each cop) Ut For In stance, forth month of Augut lt tho greatest amount of copying done by any onecopyhtwaa ion wi wonts, v, htto the lent amount of copying done by any one coprht wu 490fi3 words. According to the new ayktcm of gradation the 173 plocoi will be glvon only to thone oipylsu who write over TjOoo vonls per month, the 100 places to thoco ho copy oyer MOW wordi per month, and the 9 fl I laces to thrwo copying under 6-1000 wordixrmmtli. This will came an entire rearrangemeutoftheeopy 1st according to their capacity. Secretary ftehurs h of the opinion that the new plan nlll hat c a ten dency to raise the standard of the copyIt force to a Hill higher degree b) acting aian tnccnthato all the copybtts,who ulll naturally lie with each other for the I7J places, uhlch will beglouas a reu ard of merit only. In this connection a few more observations may be In order regarding tho Patent Ofllco It appc us that, unlike mont Dopartmenti of the Oovt rnniLiit, tha Pateht Ofllco Is entirely self sur porting- Per sons dealrlng copies of any papers on Gle In that ofllco are entitled to the same upon tho payment of ten cents per ono hundred word copied. There are twenty nino copykts constantly at work, and, according to the new system adopted by Secretary 8chun,a copyist who earns for the Government 1108.00 a month is only paid 175 for her aervlcet. leaving a net profit of SM GO to the Government As an evidence or this fact the record! show that while the expenditures of the cntlro Patent Office, according to appropriations for the fUcal i ear end ing June 30 lost, amounted In the aggregate to 9)79,ol32l, tho total receipts of the rntentODIco during the same period for copteH of record. Ac , amounted to 971 1.WAJ73, leaving a balance of amount eirnedOYcrexpendlturcsofflVliM 49. Tho money received by the Patent Office Is required by law to be deposited In the United states Treasury, and the office now has credited to It, in the aggregate, at tho Treasury, over 91,000000, otwlthttanding all this, however, the last Congress limited the ex penditures or the Patent Office to a still lower amount, by reducing- the hut yean appropriations, which places the offioe at a great disadvantage. At prcent the entire force of coyplits of the office are at work, and yet they are behind. In addition to this the appropriation for these copyiits la running quite low, and It Is feared that a re duction will I-.ro soon to be made, whereas It woull be comparatively an eaiy matter now to find work fbr ten additional copyist. It Is understood that Secretary Pchurt Intends recommending to Congresi, at Its next session, cer tain new method of appropriation fur the Patent office, whoreby a larger contingent fund will bo placed under the control of the Secretary and Cum mlssloncr of Patents, which as occasion requires may be applied to the employment of temporary copyists. In tills way thero could be a reserve or tempo rary force to bo employed only when actually necded.andpaldat proscribed rates for tho exact amount of work performed This would bo a great convenience to a large number of persons In terested in patent caws, who are now compelled to wait sometimes weeks and month before receiv ing copies of papers on fllo in the office.

The telegram glv es a good Idea of the great difficulties wMch tlio Russians, have still to overcome. Its ptlnelpal point Are ai follows t Theattaik upon Plevna r seinblrs a slcgo more than anything else. 84 far there dees not seem to li-tve bocn a slngli shot exchanged by lufintry on the Kuxilaa right snl centre. Tho flro of Ihe Turkish re doubt of Grlrlea does not appear to ban slackened In the least, despite the numerotti number of shells thrown Into it yesterday, and, although wo can sea the oarth flying lnt tho air In the middle of the redoubt, tha Tntklsh guns reply regularly as clock work. It la evident none of the Turkish guns bar boon dismounted. It I very probable that tho Turks have not inauy men In tbe redoubt. They aro hidden iu trenches aud low places tm the ground outside. A few only are kept es the redoubt for tho management of guns, and. as fait as they are killed they are replaced by others. The Are of the Turkish batteries In the hollow btttieen (ttvsea and I'levna is 1am steady, and not so well sustalued as yesterday. L'robably some of the guns have been dis mounted. I must say I do not bellevo much I the effect of tho J!uvIan bombardment. There were to be mounted altogether four hundred guns biaring upon the TurkUh positions, but so Cir not more than ono hundred or one ban drod and twenty seem to hare been brought into position and the eTcct to the present la very slight. They will havo to como to muck tloscr quarters. The same correspondent la a later dispatch reports a continuation of this artillery on Sunday anl M unity, during which the HuaUan batteries grain ally pushed forward, as described In tho olllelal Russian telegram. In front of Iladlzvo four guos In thoTnrklskj redoubt were dismantled on Hunday, but were) replaced during the night. They were ess) Monday replying to the Ruvtan fire, but making sadly slow work In the midst of the hells poured into the redoubt. Krery now and then tbe Turks would suspend fire for many mlnutca, as though the redoubt had been silenced, but after the pause came back a shell or two. The correspondent also do scribes, from personal observation, the attack on Saturday by a column, headed by General Skobeleff, from the Kiuutan left flank, near that Lerats and Plev ua road, against one of th redoubts on the southern side of Plevna. 1st the attack the KusaUns drove the Turks from their outlying positions, but as they neare4 the foot of the slope the TurkUh fire became terrtuie. rrom tuo parapets oi tne redoubt poured forth a steady wavo of flame, and thi redoubt was hidden In thlek white smoke. The roar of this tremendous fire was slmpljr loanm. i never ncaru auyining iixe it. This lasted, about twenty minutes, when tiss) Russian skirmish Una bogan to withdraw. The Turks then made a sortie from the re doubt, which was repulsed by the Iltuslau la) their turn, as was a second Hussion attack 04 tho redoubt, although it was tills time sup ported by the Are of Russian batteries, anl mado with Urge rrenforcementa. The following Is a general view of the sltnv tlon i It is obvious that the fortifications luv been much strengthened since the hit battle. The longer one looks at the plaee tho mor thoroughly docs one feel the toujhnrwof the) Itutaian task. The position mint bo attacked aa a whole, anl taVcnasa who'e If th northern rldgo weru taken and occupied th position of the central swell would not b materially Impaired. Suppose, a lodgment was effected on tho oeuf tral swell, that lodgment would be commanded by tho northern rldgea and the redoubt o tho south of tho Lorn. All that is wanted to make tho Turkish position virtually impreg nable Is tho fortification of the rldgo In front ofRadlzvo. Probubly this was not under taken, owing to tho force available not belaf strong enough to hold so wide an area. Ao cording to tho foregoing telegram an assault wai fixed for Tuesday. The Kinpcror and th Grand Duko Nicholas slept at Pored! n Mon d ly night, so as to bo near at hand to w itnesa it. Tho Tinw' Purls correspondent says It Ii announce! from lUgusa that a majority of Hosnlau Insurgents have submitted to th Turkish Government at Ilosna bcral. VICTORY FOR TIIR MOXTKNEGRINfl.
