Tweed and E.' A. Woodward bad been doing a large and very profitable business, and that the robberies of the City Treasury bad at last been brought home to the guilty parties, or, at any rate, to some of them. The . Mayor was invisible yesterday, arriving latd at his office, . and lea vine: after reading his j letters. There was some tslk. too, yesterday, in regard to Mr. IIalx, and some strong language was uttered as to bis culpability in permitting the accounts laid before tbe Board of Audit to be passed on and approved by subordinates, of the untrustworthy-) untrustworthy-) untrustworthy-) character of one of whom, at least, be had full knowledge.' Various surmises were indulged in as to when Tweed would bt arrested, and several persons stationed themselves themselves near to the Department of Public Works, expecting to see the " Boss " brought out by a policeman, or a Sheriff's officer, at least. The " Boss," however, was closeted the whole morning morning with hia lawyer.
