Yesterday aftetnoon Lizzie O'Malley, 24 years of age, residing at No. 1852 LaSalle street, drank a cup of concentrated lye in mistake for a cup of tea. It was noticed at once, and a physician who was called in succeeded in saving her life by the use of strong emetics.

A call was issued for the provision men to meet lit the Open Board-room yesterday afternoon to talk about inspection. and suggest names for an Inspector. About twenty assembled, but., as the callers of the meeting did not make their appearance, nothing was done. At 4 o'clock yesterday afternoon Thomas Nichlimn. a watchman in tne employ of the Pittsburg & Fort Wayne Railroad, whi.e chasing sorne boys who were annoying him near the crossing of Stewart avenue and Eighteenth street, was accidentally caught between the bumpers of two cars and quite severely injured internal.y. The attendance at the Philosophical Society last 'right was large. Mrs. Amelia John Hathaway delivered an interesting lecture upon ' Mental Automatism." At the next meeting the Rev. J. T. Sunderland will tell what he knows about the ruler of that supposititious future abode of the wicked. ' The Devil" he will discourse about. A package containing 82,000 in bills was yesterday received at the Sub-Treasury from L. P. Sherman, Collector of Internal Revenue for Eastern Iowa. Among the roll was a counterfeit National 5500 bill. It differs from the original in two par- ticularm the ear of John hinincy Adams is indistinct, as is the left hand of the female figure. The bill was stemma " N. G." and sent back. It mune through the National Bank of Iowa. Yesterday afternoon the body of an unknown man was found floating in the lake at the foot of Fifty- third street, near the Hyde Park Hotel. It was that of a German about 46 years of age, and was clad in a checited flannel shirt, dark cassimere pants and vest, and a dark brown beaver sacic coat. In life the man had been a little under size, of a sandy complexion, with sandy beard mixed with gray. The lumber-shovers to the number of 300 or 400 met in Bohemian hail, on West Taylor street, near Canal, last night, but the proceidings were not open to reportorial investigation, and outside Inquiry revealed only the understanding that the recent action of the lumber-vessel owners was strongly deprecated, and the expression general' that the movement to unload vessels with crews would prove a failure. As far as could be ascertained the rates for the season were not fixed, but It is said they will be lower than last fall. The ladies of Centenary Church have provided a series of entertainments for the benefit of the Ladies' Aid Society, the first of which occurs on Tuesday evening. It promises to be an unusually attractive course, and is intended to include musical selections by prominent artists. and a literary course, in ,A hich Robert Collyer, David Swing, and others will participate. The programme for Tuesday evening comprises an interesting selection of readinge and music, which will be rendered by artists whose names are sufficiently popular to insure attention. The Penitentiary Commissioners met in secret session at the Grand Pacitic Hotel yesterday afternoon, and agreed to sublet all the work on the Eastern Insane Aevium, except the cut stone, to Lilly Brothers, of Port Wayne, Ind., for 5147, 575. The action is a little farcical on its face. and is looked upon with some suspicion. from the fact that a reputable firm in this city offered to do the work for $.7,39 less. The action of one of the Commissioners in vulgarly insulting one of the lower bidders who remonstrated against the letting was also the saoject of some adverse comment. The Special Committee on , Customs Frauds transacted but very little business yesterday, on account of its being Saturday. and a busy day with the witnesses. But a very short session was beld. commencing at 3 p.m. and closing at about 4 o'clock. But two or three witnesses appeared before the investigators. the most prominent of whom was Peier Van Schaack, of the wholesale drng erm of Stevenson, Van Schaack .1t Co., who -----ma-rome disclosures, but exactly of what nature could not be learteed. Mr. J. J. McGrath was inside the Drivate'room for a few moments only, and be probably did not have much to say. There was nothing at the defunct banks !ester, clay Out of the usual order of things. Depositors in the State Savings were drawing their dividends - as usual, and at the other institutions the Receivers were doing little or nothing except to long for collections to come in, and for the better times to come whereon the real estate on hand could be sold and the proceeds applied to dividends. Re. ceiver Jackson, of the Third National. will move Into Room 11 of the same building in which the bank is now situatea within a few days, the Merchants' Savings Loan tit Trust Company having leased the bank office, into which they will move sometime in April. A resident of this city told a friend the other day that he had once neon a timethe conversation had turned upon O'Leary sod Westonwalked from here to lailwaukee in a day, ninety-three miles, square heel-and-toe walking, he said. ' 0, thutal too thin," Contemptuously said one of his bearers. "Perhaps you think I'm lying." imlignantly retorted the mighty pedestrian. but I can Prove it to you. Smithyou know Smith; fellow in a bank down near the Chamber of Commerce, with big earsSmith was along with me." -O. that alters the case," said the other one; 'if there was two of you it only made about forty-six Miles apiecethat's nothing to blow about." Mention was made yesterday in a telegram of the death of a man named James Stine, in a ew Yori . by suicide. A letter of recommendation from Clapp, Young a:, Co., of this city. was found in Lis poseession. He stated the day before he died that he had been searching six weeks for work, oat being unable to procure it, he had bought a ticket for Chicago, determined to return home. As he was friendless and penniless. ha concluded to kill himself. and Wednesday took a dose of morphine. This did not have the desired effect. Thursday he wandered aimlessly around, and in the evening found himself in Central Park. Seating himself on a bench, be unbuttoned his coat and vest, and Shot himself three times in the region of the heart. A young man residing in this cite has been looking forward for some time past with pleasure not unmixed with apprehension to the visit of his !biter, whom he had not seen for three years. The cause of his anxiety is easily explained: a female Visitor has to be shown all the sights, taken to the theatres. and balls, and three admissions to such places soon make a hole in a young man's salary. The sister arrived last Thursday. and in the course of the evening her brother found out that she bad been converted and wouldn't be seen on the same side of the Street am a theatre was on. The brother feels as if the Grand Pacific Hotel had been lifted off his chest, and there is more joy in his household over one sister that bath been converted than there would be over ninety and nine cousins who would need to be escorted round to places of amusement. A temperance reformer was arguing with a man who didn't believe in prohibition the other day. and slung some statistics at him. - In Beljum," said the advocate of temperance, " there are over 101.000 places were spiritcbus Liquors are sold, in a popilation of less than five millions, or an average of one saloon for every 49 persons. male, female, and children. This makes in the neighborhood of one ealoon for every 12 adult males, and in some places there is one for every 6 voters. What do you think of that? le it not a oeplorable pros- pect?" be added, warmly. 'You're talking." said the enemy of Prohibition warmly; unless the boys is all Vanderbilts, and especially if they ever hang up the drinks, three-quarters of those saloonkeepers 'II be but inside of a year." The West Town Collector. John Hoffman, will probably turn his books over to the County collector to-morrow or Tuesday.

Beattie the pereonal taxes. about $100,000 has been taken in on real estate. Tne expenses of collection this year are less, and more money has been taken in. One reason of the success lies in the fact that James N. clarke's assessment last year was fair and equitably made, and another, that the Collector was determined to do his best for the city.- . The old man read In his Ter-Kr-vs, the other day, an interesting story about Modjeska at Boston, how in going off the stage she tripped over a doorstep, or a syllable of her name, or sometning, and fell on her nose. " The audience testiSed its symyathy.'" read the old titan; "1 s'xiotie that -Ouch!' and the swift little smile and motion in , which she conveyed to the relieved audience that she was not hurt, that she was herself to Name for not taking care, and that she was grateful for the sympathy expressedall this in one look and step were an inimitable and indescribable exhibition of her art.' " Here the old man stopped, looked aronna aporeheneively, caressed a lump on the back of his head that is laid down in no phrenological chart, and went on musingly: "Well, well. And that's Art! Now, I recollect that my old woman fell over a rocking-chair onst one night in the bedroom, and nearly swallowed her false teeth, besides knocking the washetand-basin into forty -imllioa pieces and getting most of them into the palms of her hands, and can I ever forget the swift little smile and motion in which she con, eyed to we that atia wu hurt, awl that I was to , blame for leaving that rocking-chair right in the middle of the room and turning out the gas, and that there was a broom out in the kitchen behind the pantry-door to the left as you go in, and that there would be a lump on the back of my head as big as a hen's egg before the shadow on the dial bad moved forwards eve minutes. and that if she bad only known what sort of a whole menagerie of brutes I was before she married me she never would the longest day she lived! And yet I never would have thought of paying 11.50 for a reserved seat to see that inimitaole and indescribabie exhibition of her art. What frauds these actresses are anyway ! There's no accounting for tastes." A Congressman (whose name, out of regard for his numerous constituents, is suppressed) is deeply In love with a beautiful girl of this city, now visiting the National Capital. where she is receiving much attention. The other evening he called upon her to propotie for her hand and heart. He was somewhat agitated and said that he would now move the House into Committee of the Whole on the Unionhe meant to ray that they do now go into executive session. Kneeling at her feet he gasped, "I will detain you but a few minutes. Miss " (her name, out of regard for the numerous young men to whom she is engaged and who all consider ber faithful and true is withheld), "Miss , I wish tothat is to say. existence tin-cheered byI mean you cannot but be aware that-In fine," be burst out, growing desperate, " move that my speech be received as delivered, and ordered printed in the Congressional RecordI mean and on the tablets of your memory, anti that you do hereby will accept me." There will be no cards. " How deceptive appearances are sometimes!" said. on Dearborn street, solemnly, a middle-aged man to a friend from Racine, the other day. as a tall. gaunt, shabbily-dreseed man passed them. "To look at that man," he continued, "you wouldn't think he was worth more than a dollar, or maybe a dollar and a half with his clothes. I recollect him ever since he came here in 'he, and he has always preeented the same shabby appearanee, such an appearance. indeed, as would justify a barkeeper of very limited powers of observation in remarking eignideantly, before he intrusted the tlecanter to his hands, 'Projnce the neceseary.' Well, well, you can't always tell a man by his looks. What do von think that man yonder is worth? I mean after making every deduction for depression of values. shrinkage of real estate, and soon." The man from Racine said he didnt knowperhaps 00. 000. You're about half a million out." said the Chicagoan. " A million?" said the man from Racine. " No," said the Chicagoan; " he Mill worth a cent." Five minutes afterwards they iesned from the portal of a wet-goods store, the Racine man putting his change from a dollar bill back into his pocketbook, and the Chicagoan wear-lug a still, small emi le of contentment. THIS UPHOLSTERERS. The leading upuoisterers of Chicago, in view of the hard times and the consequent reduction of their wares, have entered into an agreement to reduce the wages of their workmen from $2.50 to $2.25 a day after April 1. There are in this city, it is said, less than afty first-class hands. though there are altogether, inducting boys, some 500 enraged in the calling. The I pholsterers' Union has a membership of 230. The action of the employes has been a subject of discussion at its meetings, and, while nothing dednite has yet been done. the men have informally decided to quit wurk if their pay is lowered. As a rule, the firms make a contract with their bands. The arreement terminates at one shop on a certain day, and at another shop on a ditterent day. In a few establishments work is done altogetaer by the piece. The latter have not entered into the aereement. The W. W. Strong Furniture Company's contract expired March Land when their men were informed of the reduction they declined to accede to it, and put on their coats. They, however. w,ent to work arain under an arrangement by which they are to be paid for what they do. At Spiegel & Co. 'a the men left, and have not returned. Colby & Wirt s have as yet bad no trouble. Their contract does not terminate until the lst prox. Since only a few of the employers are in the combination, its object is likely to be defeated. Firms outside have notified the arst-class workmen that they can have employment in their shops at Se. 50 a day. As the number is limited. and it is difficult to fill vacancies, these fortunate craftsmen are not uneasy. Whether they will shoulder the inferior men and try to carry them through remains to be seen. A BRANCH MINT. The Chicago Mining and Stock Exchange held its first meeting yesterday in its new room in the Methodist Episcopal Church Block. The room has been calcimined and cleaned. and it is proposed to have the furniture put in ready for business next week. and to hold its next session there Monday, April 2. Tne principal business transacted was the election of members and the passage of the following resolutions in regard to securing a branch mint in this city: WnyintÁs, it is generatly recognized that additional coinage capacity is necessary to secure the best results from the laws renionetizing silver. and providing for curly resumption of specie payments; and WHEREAS, The present United btates Minta are all located outside of and at consideratdo distances from the great Northwestern States of Ohio, Indiana, Michigan, Illinois.

Bell. one of its Directors, to represmt its sentiments at , Washington and to urge upon our members of Congress that they take most active measures to semre this wise and needed legislation. OBITUARY. By the death of Mr. John Berry Mitchell, announced in Monday's TRIBUNE, the old residents of this city are reminded of the early days of Chicago, and of the band of pioneers who, with unbounded faith in its future, helped to lay the foundation of its greatness. Mr. Mitchell was one of the old settlers. He was born in me town of Leeds. Kennehec County, Me., Oct. 17, MOS, and removed to Chicago. then a mere villace of less than 2,0e0 inhabitants, in October, 1838, where, with brief intervals of absence, be has since resided. For many years be was engaged in active business. The old residents will remember the boot and shoe store kept 'oy him on Dearhorn street, near the old Tremont House. He became a member of the Clark street M. E. Church in February. 1S39. He was a confirmed invalid during the last five years of his life, but endured his physical sufferings with true Christian heroism and resignation. His remains were taken to Park Ridge for burial by the sine of three children and other relatives Whose graves are in the cemetery there. He leaves a wife and two children. SENATOR OGLESBY. United States Senator Eichard J. OgIeRby was in the city yesterday. at the Grand Pacidc Hotel. He is on his way to Washington, he haying cone to his home on leave of absence to be present at the birth of his son, which occurred a few days ago. The Senator etated that he expected to do some hard work in the next few weeks to make up for lost time. His secretary had written him that over 500 letters had come to band since his rioeence which must be answered. So far ae the Customs frauds in New York were concerned he thought that it was a matter for investigation by the United States Treasury, and one with welch Congress had nothing to do. The Commission that was in session now, he thought, would do its duty, and further than that he could say nothing. It was a matter apout which the Reeresentatives and Senators from this State had thomfht a great deal, but would await the result of the Investiention Commission appointed by secretary Sherman.

A meeting of the Executive Committee of the Citizen& Association was held yesterday afternoon for the purpose of receiving the report of the Committee of Seven, appointed to suggest a plan to relieve the city of its present financial embarrasstnents growing out of the decision of the Supreme Court regarding city certificates. and also a plan for the future conduct of its affairs. Among the gentlemen present were F. W. Peck. T. J. Withrow, A. A. Sprague. Edwin Lee Brown, J. G. Shortall, Enos Ayres. R. P. Derickeon, George E. Adams, R. Meadowcraft, J. M. Adsit, George M. How, J. ii. Rees, Abner Taylor, E. S. Pike, and others. The report which waa animated meets, it is understood, the cordial support of six of its memhero. the other, Mr. Silverman, dissenting. After the report had been read. it was explained by one of the members of the Committee, and discussed briefly by some of the gentlemen belonging to the Executive Committee. It was decided by them not to make it public until they had more thoroughly considered and digested its suggestion. As far as it is known. the report proposee to deal with the momentary difficulty through the use of city warrants, which are to be issued by tee city and taken care of by a, syndicate until the money can be collected next year with which to pay them. This. however, is for the present alone. For the future it is proposed that the proper State officers be urged to direct the Assessors who are to be elected next week to make their assessmenuf in accordance with the lawtnat is, assessing all property at its fair cash value. Were this done, the assessment of the towns included within the City of Chicago would be so highaoont S:310.000,000 that it could issue $2, 000.000 of bonds to fund ' its floating indebtedness, and yet remain within the 5 per cent limit fixed by the Constitution. Then, baying disposed of the present burden of floating indebtetineses. the Council would have to take measures for the accumulation of a surplus fund which could be used to run the city during the furcal year and until the taxes levied for that year had been collected. This it is proposed to do by reducing expenditures to a minimumsay something over $0 000,000-- and eetting apart the rest of the tax levy as a surplus fund. The Committee believed that tins plea was the only one by which the city could be taken and kept out of the miseries which are now besieging it- The following resolution was reported by tbe Committee of Seven and unanimously adopted: WilvitrAS. There are outstanding cerrifirstet ot Indebtedness, issued by the lawfully constituted authorities of the City of Chleago. amounting in the aggregate to the sum of 3.000.000. the proceeds of which have been covered into the City Treasury and disbursed therefrom for lilt legitimate expenses Of the city; be it Resolved. That It is the sense of this Association that the city. having received the benetits securing from the sale of the said certiticates, they should be met in the most ample good faith at maturity by the city. Some time during the week the Executive Committee will bold another meeting and take some action upon the report. During the discussion attention wu called to the recent decision of the Wisconsin Supreme Court setting aside the tag levy of the City of Fort Howard on the ground that the assesement was void, the Assessor not having made a fair cash valuation of property, and it was intimated that possibly the Supreme Court of Illinois might add to the existing complications by making a similar decision in case the imperative Revenue law of this State were not lived no to by the Assessors and the State Board of Equalization. - SOCIAL SCANDAL. HORSEWHIPS AND PISTOLS. The ruler of events has in kindness to a romance-loving public and the frateraity of emaciated newspaper reporters decreed that the time had Come when there should be a social sensationsomething that should awaken from lethargic slumber the component parts of the narrow world known as "society." again manifest himself. Probably It was the Devil who concocted the scheme which worked its way out through the person of a certain young man quite widely known in certain social circles of this city. Be that as it may. a scheme was concocted & scaeme worthy of the malicious ingenuity of the Devil himselfto rob a young lady of that which she held most near and dear, her good name. A " personal " was inserted in one of the daily papers. This personal requested a certain young ladp to "again " meet the advertiser at the usual time" at a place the number of which only was given. The name of the young lady was so little concealed by the omission of letters that every persan who was acquainted with her for whom the advertisement was intended (and it could mean none but her, as her name was so marked) knew St once who was meant. and the personal, framed in language that showed a falsity upon its face, revealed so plainly the malicious motive it contained that no room was left for doubt. And. too, the number given wee United a notorious place of vicious resort. A tempest of wrath at once arose. Father, friends, and relatives of the young lady swore lasting revenge. The contemptible insult offered to thc lady cut them to the quick. That she, who bad always deported herself in the way most becoming to a lady. and had never been known to say or do aught that even the evil-minded could construe into an improper act. should be so assailed without cause and in such an open, public way, was enough to make them justly cry for vengeance. But who was the perpetrator of this " practical joke," this easy way to get evens' for a well-deserved social rebuff ? Suspicion at once fell upon a young man who bad sought the band and heart of the fair one in vain. In juetice to hial be it said that he cleared himself from the imputation cast upon him, and shamed those who had suspected him. There was another man who had upon one occasion written a very impertinent note to Miss , and had upon another occasion boasted himself the perpetrator of another "huge practical joke" in inviting the young lady to a party, and saying, alter being refused, that be had intended not to escort her in case she accepted the invitation. The general reputation of this man had not a little influence in turning suspicion against him. He bad been. say the lady's friends. detected in many scurvy tricks and scurrilous remarks, and is alleged to be the author of anonvmous letters to a certain lady concerning her husband, and of similar letters to the relatives of that lady directing suspicion to that husband. It may not be out of place to add that no one could have been more generally disliked than this ago. BUT HOW TO VERIFY Tint sUsPICIONS which inevitably attached themselves to him, was the main question for solution by the many friends who had interested themselves in the avenging of such a cowardly act. Steps were immediately taken to prove the guilt. The copy from which the advertisement had been printed was secured and taken by Mr. W. J. Swan, whose relations to the young lady are of such a nature that he was deemed the proper person to espouse her cause, and compared by him with the impertinent letter mentioned above. The similarity between the chirography of the two was so striking that Mr. Swan was at once satisfied that the dastard bad been found. To fortify himself. he presented the papers to an expert. who unhesitatiteily pronounced them from the same pen. And Prof. R. U. Piper, the microscopist, readily pointed out the unmistakable peculiarities of the one seen in the other, and declared positively that the person who was guilty of writing the letter was the writer of the advertisement. The author of the letter was James C. Harris, who boards with Dr. Swartley at No. 755 Michigan avenue. Therefore the authorship of the personal was atfributed to that individual. He has an unenviable reputation and a business repute over which his former employes, the Hall Safe & Lock Company, ebake their heads. To this person Mr. Swan turned. Ile sought him at his abiding place. but ending him dancing attendance at Boornique's, "called him out," and demanded a settlement without unnecessary delay. Harris refused to be interviewed then, and declined to call the next day at Mr. Swan's office, the office of the Vice-President of the Western Union Telegraph Company. Thus the man unwittingly postponed a settlement of accounts. Mr. Swan volunteered to call upon him in the morning. Hume Paid that he would be "out." Not to be battled, Mr. Swan waited in front of his residence till he .should return. Harris, It appears, sent home for a pistol, and upon the most pitiful entreaties induced three acquaintances to see him home. At the residence Mr. Swan waited with two friends whoni be desired to witness the affair. When the carriage containing Harris and his protectors rolled up Mr. Swan confronted Harris. The urgent interference of Harris' escorts, and possibly the presence of two guardians of the peace, prevented an outbreak and a great disturbance. That Harris would not meet the responeloility of his alleged acts like a man was evident. The next night Mr. Swan called at No. 755 Michigan avenue and found Harris at home. Entering the parlor and demanding Harris to step outside, and being refused, Mr. Swan drew a Clog-whip and laid it vigorously over the head and shoulders of the alleged defamer. Great livid marks rose in response to the touch of the whip. Harris drew a pistol. and ordered Mr. Swan out of the house. Mr. Swan was unarmed. He dared Harris to shoot. Harris did not lire. Satisfled with the humiliation which he bad bestowed upon the man before him, Mr. Swan withdrew, and Harris will long remember the punishment of the bad deeds claimed to have been committed by him, which could emanate Only from one totally lost to the commonest feelings of decency and gentlemanly deportment. THE CHICAGO TRIBUNE': SUNDAY. MARCH 21, 187E-SIXTEEN FAG' ES. CITY CERTIFICATES. A NEW MOVE IN THE INJUNCTION SUIT. Yesterday morning Gen. George W. Smith and John M. Rountree appeared before Judge Moore with a petition to make Mrs. Elizabeth Bayard. widow of Robert Bayard, of New York, a party defendant in the case of Henry Faller ve. The city. Mr. Robey, attorney for Mr. Faller, objected, on the ground that it would raise collateral issues. Mr. Smith informed the Court that the bill alleged that Fuller was a taxpayer, and was seeking to enjoin the city from using certain revenue for the payment of warrants which were issued for money advanced to the city in anticipation of the revenue. The city had derived the money on warrants, and was now about to use money which it bad received from taxes in payment of these certificates. The bill alleged that such certificates were void; that there was a conspiracy existing between the city and the certificate-holders to use the money in this way. The question which would arise must necessarily be of most interest to the certificate-holders. It could mate little difference to the city, except as it affected it power to borrow. whether the injunctions were granted or not. Ile was ready to show the material interest of his client. The Court inquired how Mrs. Bayard would be injured if not made a party. Mr. Smith said that the city, if enjoined, would be prevented from paving her certificates. It would not be proper to make her sit by and then say, if this case resulted in the issuance of the order. that she might commence a case at common law. To get a judgment would require from three to five years. In the meantime the city might divert the money. Iler appearance in tide case would also prevent a multitude of suits. Mr. Rountree held that the city was only a Trastee. and was pledged to pay the money to the certificate-holders. Under such circumstances the holder had as much right to be made a party as a bondholder in a railroad case. The real controversy was between Fuller and the certificate-holders. If the injunction should be issued, the city could not pay the certificates, and the holders would have to apply for a judgment. By making them defendants but one suit would be necessary. Fuller claimed to be the taxpayer; the certificate-holder claimed the taxes, and hence the latter should be heard. Besides. the bill charged the petitioner with being a conspirator. Mr. Robey replied by saving that the defendants were really Only the city racers. As in the Edwards case, there was no necessity for other defendants. Mr. RountreeAnd no application to be made defendants either. Mr. Robey said that the complainant bad the option of admitting new defendants, but could not be compelled to do so, especially if colditeral issues wouid be thereby raised. A decree against the City would be binding against all holders of certificates. The latter, if they feared a diversion of the money pending a suit for a judgment. could apply for an injunction to enjoin such diversion. Corporation-Counsel Bonfield, on behalf of the city. said that the bill alleged that the city was a conspirator, wita others. to defraud the citizens. It was a fact. however, that there were reports on the street that the city was conspiring with Henry Yeller to prevent the payment of the warrants. Ile thought that it would remove many lair grounda of suspicion from the minds of the people if Mrs. Bayard and any other holders of thes city's paper were allowed to come in and be beard. The question should be fully presented by all parties. Mr. Robey then stated to the Court that be would be very glad to have such attorneys as those for Mrs. Bayard in the case, and he waived his objec tions and allowed Mn. Bayard to be made a party defendant. Some general talk followed as to when the case could be heard. Judge Moore said that on Monday week he would have to sit in the Criminal Court. Mr. Bonfield thought the city would be ready next week. He wee anxious for an early hearing. Mr. Smith promised to be ready ea soon as the city. The object of bringing Mrs. Bayard, a non-resident. into the proceeding is believed to be for the purpose of transferring the matter at Once to the United States Court, if Judge Moore decides to grant the injunction. THE COUNTY BUILDING. The Grand Jury did very little yesterday, and nothing of any importance. The Collector of Lyons brought in $1, 000 yesterday. and the Collector of Thornton $600. The arguments in the cases of Sherry and Connelly, on motion for a new trial. were yesterday postponed for one week on motion of their attorneys. The case of Nellie Price and Sherry, for robbery from Mr. Hotchkin, occupied the Criminal Coum Resin yesterday. Nellie deigned to take the witness stand in her own defense, and did some wild swearing. The case was given to the jury at a late bour, and a sealed verdict is to be returned tomorrow. The Rev. Mr. Haagensen, not Hawkinson, mar- red Miss Jacobin', referred to in this column yesterday. He appeared at the County Clerk's office yesterday and made affidavit that he had returned the license, etc., but the closest search failed to produce it. The blame of the license not being on record must now be added to Gen. Lieb's many sins of omission. The Sheriffs office will not be removed to the South Side after all. In committee it was yesterday agreed to give the Board room to the County Treasurer, with the understanding that the Board would occupy the t'ounty Court room, or the Grand Jury room. The Sheriff's office was to have been removed to give the Board quarters, but the scheme now seems to have been abandoned. Now that the county cannot force the city to be a Party to the Court-House dome steal, the Ring" is inclined to compromise. Yesterday Messrs. Burling. Fitzgerald. and Architect Egan were appointed a Committee to consult with the city authorities in the matter as a sham. The " Ring" knows full well that the city has long since repudiated the dome idea, and all that can come of the consultation will be delay on the part of the county in tearing down what it has built. The Committee on Supplies was at work again yesterday, and agreed to recommend that the award for bread be made to Duffy Bros. at their bid of $2.20 per 100 pounds; to Field. Leiter & Co. for dry goods; to M. C. McDonald & Co. for liquors; to the Tivoli Bottling Company for beer: and to McGinness & Boyle for ice at their bid of 38 cents per 100 pounds. In making the award for liquors there was a hie fight, coming of the fact that a certain Commissioner was supposed to be one of the bidders. The awards yet to be made are for drugs clothing, and groceries. SEXTON'S EXTRAS. The Committee on Public Buildings and Public Service met yesterday afternoon. and had before it the proposition to cut off Sexton's extras" on the brick-work for the Court-House. Mr. Burling stated that there was no necessity for using a better brick than was called for in the specifications. and reminded the Committee that Architect Egan was of the same opinion. Messrs. Hoffmann and Bradley took a different view of the situation, and were in favor of continuing the "extra" steal, which, if carried forward. will amount to $27,000. They wanted the very best walls put up, and could not see how their wishes could be carried forward without the " extras, " notwithstanding the opinion of both Burling and Egan, who are experts in such matters. Finally action in the matter was postponed, and. by a casual glance at affairs, the indications are that the postponement means a throwing away of $27,000 of the public's money. There may be some excuse for Lois outside of the peculiar relations of Sexton and certain Commissioners, but none has been given. CRIMINAL. Minor arrests: Frank Williams, William Hamilton, Joseph Bribe ly, &Ilea ' Yorky," and William O'Donnell, wanted on general principles and Upon suspicion by Detective Scott; Thomas McDonald, alias Howard, a well-known confidence-man, who is wanted on suspicion of having taken several "con." tricks on the railroad; Mary Wilcox, wanted on suspicion of having robbed the Windsor House of a quantity of clothing. Two well-known pickpockets of youthful years named William Mc(,eeney, alias O'Connor, and John O'Brien. aided by another lad not yet in custody, yesterday afternoon waylaid Mrs. Drake, of No. 120 Ann street, at the corner of Wabash avenue and Monroe street. They snatched from her hand a pocketbook containing about $100. They were run down by some citizens, and Detectives Ryan and Osterman took them into custody, and Justice Summerfield awarded them $100 each, as Mrs. Drake refused to prosecute for larceny. About $65 of the money was recovered upon the two young thieves. Edward Mosely, charged with ravishing his adopted sister Anna, aged 12 years. yesterday waived further examination in the South Division Police Court, and was held in S2,00i) to the CriminalCourt. The little girl will swear positively against him, and a physician who has examined her will prove her condition. Justice Snmmerfield committed the girl to the Home of the Friendless, and every effort is to be made to prevent Mosely's friends or relatives from tampering with her. Mosely is but a short time out of jail, on charges of larceny as bailee and for perjury in connection with his relentless prosecution of Ellen Mathews. Justice Summerfield yesterday held the following: Andrew Collins, assaulting and cutting Henry Bele, because he would not accommodate him with a chew of tobacco, $600 to the Criminal Court; Charles McNaniman, larceny of overcoats and assaulting and biting Officer Murnane, continued to the 30111; John Slayton Henry Semmen, Thomas O'Neill, and Michael McDonald, larceny of three kegs of beer, $300 each to the Criminal Court; John Dolley, and Richard Blackmore, larceny of gran-bags, $300 each to the 25th. Justice Morrison held Henry Hopkins in $500 to the Criminal Court for the burglary of Henrietta Burg's house, No. 198 Curtis street; William ' larceny of $10. $200 to the Criminal Court; Benjamin and Joseph Rosenbach, receiving stolen property, $500 to the 27th; Constable J. tt. Grant, Gus Walker, insurance man. and W. J. Walker, renting agent, charged with conspiracy to dispossess S. W. Stryker of certain cnattels and goods in stock. SUBURBAN. LAKE. The Board of Town Trustees met yesterday afternoon, with all the members present. Mr. Condit sent in a letter stating that his annual report had been delayed to allow the use of his books during the recent investigation before Justice Foote. He asked that, in view of the sus-melon cast noon his official reputation, a committee be appointed to look into his accounts and see if they were all right. The request was granted, and Messrs. Mairhead, Montgomery, and Biester were appointed such a Committee, and were authorized to employ an expert to assist them. Mr. A. H. Veeder. the Town Attorney, sent in his resignation, to take effect April 1. his reason was that his practice was such as to prevent him giving that time to the town's business which its importance required. It was accepted. A petition was received and referred asking that the name of Arnold street be changed to LaSalle street. An ordinance was passed fixing the Treasurer's compensation for thc fiscal year just closing at 2 per cent of all the money received by Wm. The meeting adjourned to Thursday at 9 a. in. A meeting of the citizens of the town opposed to the present administration was neld last evening at the Centennial School, on Fifty-first 'street. When the Committees from the different portions of the town were called it was foucd that there was no representation from the Stock-Yards, as there had been some misunderstanding about calling a meeting there. After a consultation with the rest of the Committees it was resolved to adjourn to meet in the same place Tuesday evening. In the meantime the Stock-Yards are ta hold a meeting and elect delegates. A man by the name of John Kane, a plasterer by trade. who resides at Englewood, was killed by a Lake Shore & Michigan Southern awitch-enrine at Forty-third street yesterday afternoon. He was shout 1.8 years old. MDR PARK. Some 400 of the leading citizens of Hyde Park Met in Floods Ball last evening, tor the purpose of nominating officers to be be voted for at the spring election. Ten minutes were given each district to select a Trustee. Tne following was the result: First District, John T. Bennett ; Second, L. D. Fisher; Third, G. A. Folansbee; Fourth, Dr. Green; Fifth, A. C.

Although the opening of the Riverside Hotel has been but recently announced. many of the rooms are already enraged for immediate occupation. The very low rates of prices will undoubtedly attract the large class of people wbo desire to live economically and respectably without oeing at the same time deprived of home comforts. The free use of the spacious piazzas and the Riverside grounds must be an additional attraction to families with children. Tecumseh's Scalp Eaten by Dogs. itemingomre ire.) Democrat. Capt.

Sardou's Last Play, "Les Bourgeois de Pont Arcy"Proposed Restoration of the Theatre Lyrique at the Conservatoire. ISPecial Correspondence of The Tribune. PARIS, March 6.In days of oldthey seem very far from usthere lived and flourished in Paris a jolly monarch. His name was King Carnival, and he held sway over all the lighthearted madcaps, all the idlers, and all the libertine spirits of the Capital. The old fellow, who was yet hale and hearty in 1870, slept the best part of the year round, only awaking once and again in the twelvemonth. In the "fat days " before Lent, and again at the Mi-Careme, be would shake himself together and go mad for about a week, during which all his loyal aubjects made it a point of honor to pay him the merry homage he loved best (for he waa no stickler for propriety). The streets of Paris were WORTH LOOKING AT at such moments, and, if the sights there seen were not always edifying, they were at least full of interest to philosophers and observers of human nature. A sort of frenzy would seize hold of the population. They were possessed by a wild craving for false noses; the solemn garb of ordinary life seemed to weigh heavily upon them, and was discarded for the motley and the cap and bells of Folly. Those who were unable to satisfy their thirst for gayety in their own persons crowded the boulevards to watch the gayety of the others ; and for a few days the town was given up to the spirit of Misrule. King Carnival, transformed for the nonce into the likeness of a Beeut Gras, made a triumphal passage through the city, followed by a fanatic throng of devotees, attired in every varietg of dressor undress that license could devise and the most charitable decency tolerate. The admirers of past times and institutions take a morbid delight in telling of the rare doings of King Carnival. It would not become us to speak ill of the dead,for Tun POOR MONARCH IS DEAD. De mortuis stlei &mum. When the Prussian legions entered his Capital, he departed. His Joyous, unseemly presence has vanished from us; but his shadea mere shade, no more still lingers. "Alas, poor ghost!" Each year since the Annee Terrate has witnessed a piteous attempt to resuscitate the Carnival. Though the traditional procession of the Bin& Gras has been suppressed, and it is now no longer consieered pardonable to air oneself on the Boulevard in the borrowed garments of Pantaloon or Pierrot, a few reckless creatures have found courage somewhere to brave the derision of the crowd, in costume. But the examples were rare. Last year, I suppose. You could not have counted hall-a-dozen between the Bastile and the Madeleine; and what a time that half dozen had of it, poor devils! Mobs are pitiless as well as fickle. 'they applaud folly one day, and the next they persecute it. The appearance of a false nose was hailed by the most merciless chaff, if, indeed, no by absolute violence; and anything in the shape of a mask or fancy dress made its wearer the but of public contumely. I forget, though. In the cases of children it was different. THB trrrtz 0333 still have their CarnivaL Mardi and Dimanche Gras are grand holidays for them. Numbers of tiny mummers of both sexes may be seen trotting proudly along beside their mothers, dressed as Marquises and Queens, milkmaids and peasants, soldiers and vivandieres. Yesterday I passed a charming group at the corner of the Rue Taitbout: a lovely Sultana of 6 or 7, and two sturdy Pashas of perhaps 9. They wore genuine Oriental costumes, thick with gold thread and bright with color. I believe, I suspect, they were sent into the street to advertise their father's Turkish warehouse; but, for all that, it was pleasant to look at them. Beyond this, a plague of ubiquitous blowers of French horns, and a enastly mockery of masked balls at Bullies and Valentino, there was little to mark the difference between " fat days" and "thin days," or any other days. I'Ve made believe we were merry, like great babies. taking in neither our neighbors nor ourselves. But this Mardi-Gras a miracle has been wrought. Kind Carnival has risen from the dead! Have eon ever heard of the ESTUDIANTINAS EspAsotasi In the favored land of pretty senoritas, bull fights, and nronunciamentos, it is the custom at this season, in the University towns, for the students to go about with guitars and all manner of music, serenading the ladies and giving Impromptu open-air concerts. These bands are cal led Estudiantinas. The students of the venerable University of Salamancalong pre-eminent in wit, wealth, and culturehave bad the original idea of sending a real Estudiantina to Paris, to show us something of the glories of a Spanish Carnival. Sixty of them started from Salamanca last week, with mandolipes, guitars. flutes, and liberally supplied with 6' the sinews of war." They are musicians every one, and belong, I understand, to some of the first families in Spain. I need hardly say their arrival has created an immense sensation: A new atmosphere of youth and gaiety seems to pervade l'aris since they have been here. Wherever they go,and they go everywhere, from the Elysee to the Ecole de Medicine,they have an enthusiastic welcome Their concerts are voted charming, their dances (for they dance too) are pronounced inimitable, and we never tire of admiring their picturesque costume. The daring and novelty of their troll; and the easy grace, handsome faces. and good-humor of the young fellows, made the Estudiantina popular directly. A MORE GALLANT SIGHT than that of these sixty young Spaniards when they set out on their daily round, you could net see. They are dressed in the effective costume worn by the Salamanca students of the Sixteenth Century. It consists of a rich black velvet tunic, buttoned down the front, black silk stockings, and short velvet breeches of the same color, leather shoes with bows and steel buckles, a long Spanish cloak rolled round the both awl thrown gracefully over the shoulder, all black,white kid gloves, and, lastly, a black " harlequin " hat, cocked jauntily on one side, and oddly adorned by an ivory spoon stitched on in front. A few of them, by-the-by, wear velvet berets, and many carry bunches of violets in their hats and button-holes. All except four have musical instruments (and how they play!). There are sixteen guitars, ten violina . half-a-dozen bandonriaa (Instruments of the mandoline class), and about a dozen flutes and panderas. The guitars and bandourias rre embellished with bright ribbons of the national colors,red and yellow. I defy any one to match this orchestra on our side of the Pyrenees. Evidently Salamanca University can teach the Arts as well as the Sciences. Some of the violins would not do discredit to the Conservatoire, and the , flutes are as pure and true in tone as any you , could find at the Opera. A Spanish beggar is almost a gentleman. A Spanish gentleman is, I do believe, THE POLITEST HIEING on the face of the earth. He has the grace and civility of a Frenchman, with a peculiar grave dignity which the Frenchman has not. With true native politeness, our foreign guests ion no time in CAM UDOII the President of the Republic, at the Elysee. Not having been prepared for the coming of the unusual visitors, the Marshal was unable to receive them; so away they went, in the two wagonettes which they have hired, to the Spanish Embassy, on the quay. The Marquis de Molina made ma for the shortcomings of the Elysee by a most cordial welcome, and, eti- quette having now been fairly satisfied the students started on their career of adventures. Before very long, in front of the Opera, they were asked to gt t out of their carriages and treat tile town to a siecimen of their 11125ICEI ability-. Without the least reluctance, out they got. The musicians limiting their instrument s. the conductor (a handsome fellow, taller than the rest by three inches) took up his stand on the steps of the Opera, and in a few minutes nearly 20,000 people were enjoying the airs of Aragon and Castile. From here they proceeded to the Celtic de La Presse. where the!. gave the journalists a serenade, and thence again to the Offices of the Figaro and (Mania. The first of these journals could not have bad a better or more timely advertisement. Although the Latin Quarter could boast nothing comparable to the Estudiantina in the way of spectacle . it was felt that to allow it to. depart without a welcome from the Paris Schools would have been unpardonable. A GRAND MEETING or STPDENTS was instantly convoked at the Pantheon, and on Tuesday morning a delegauon of 400--or the fine ficur of Paris Studentdommarched down to the Rote d' Angleterre, in the Rue Montmartre, to present an address, and introduce the Spaniards to the hospitality of the " Quarter," as it is fondly called. Circulation in the streets was stopped all along the route from the Sorbonne to the Halle; and when. with the aid of a borrowed student's ticket (we were most particular in excluding the vulgar public!), I fraudulently pushed through the crowd to the doors of the Hotel, I found the address being read, amid the applause of admiring thousands. The Estudiautina didn't understand the speech-making, but they understood the general expression of good-fellowship, and did their best to respond to it. When they were at a loss for a phrase, they shouted " Iva la Francial" The hopeful Latins replied with a " rive l'Esnagnel" And off we all set in procession,the Spaniards, with their mandolines and guitars, at the head, playing for their lives. The grimy old Church of St. Eustache never looked down upon A JOLLIER SPECTACLE. At the Prefecture de Police a halt was called. bile the Prelect and his neighbor, the President of the Tribunal de Commerce, were serenaded, the crowd outside amused itself by chatting the 'bus and train drivers, and "skylarking" with any pretty girl who tried to pass. Then we made another move forward, to the Ecole de Medicine. Tha gallant foreigners streamed into the court-yard. A ring was formed, and, when all the rulgunt pecusi, e. the publicbad been summarily ejected: a select circle of us were entertained with Castilian balads and Catalonian breakdowns. Jotas succeeded fandangos, and boleros followed jotas, till we almost felt tempted to imagine we were dreaming, or at the Opera Comique. I can't say much for the dancing. Only one student danced at a time. The great object seemed to be to twist one's sett into the most uncomfortable and unnatural position possible. There was much beating of tambonnes, too, and excited throwing of caps in the air, all the while to a quaint accompaniment of mandolines and guitars. From the Ecole de Medicine the procession went to the &vie de Droit, where we had a second edition of the fandango performances; and thence to the Chalet. where a magnificent punch was brewed and drunk AMIDST FRANTIC ENTHUSIASM ' and the morning closed with a grand banquet at the Cafe Riche. Vbether the example set by the Spaniards bad stimulated the city or not, certain it is that I have never seen Paris so gay since the war. False noses reappeared by thou- sands; masks and costumes thronged the Boulevard St. Michel. and even the respectable quarters bordering the grand boulevards caught something of the festive spirit. From my windows, last night. I could see a constant stream of revelers pouring steadily down in the direction of Blither. That chaste and classic spot was crowded. Many a quadrille was danced, and many a swipe a Poignon discussed, before Ash- ednesday dawned, recalling Paris in general, and the Latin Quarter in particular, to the decorous commonplaces of every-dav life. Heigh-ho! I wonder whether we shall ever have such another Carnival! MCSICAL AND DRAMATIC. Sardou ' the indefatigable, has just added 1 another leaf to his goodly laurels. His last play, " Les Bourgeois de Pont-Arcy," is a tremendous hit. In my next I will give you a sketch of the plot, which is, in many respects, not unlike that of " Nos Bons Villageois." There is some talk of reviving the Theatre Lyrique in a modified form at the Conservatoire. The grant of 200,000 francs usually devoted to the support of the Lyrique was handed over this year in trust to M. Bardoux, the Minister of Fine Arts, to be used as he thought best for the interests of " young " musiciaus. The Conservatoire idea is M. Bardoux's, but it has been very coldly received by the composers. Probably if the Lyrique should be revived the first work produced would be M. Vancorbed's " Mahomet." I beard a - fragment of it last year at the Conservatoire, and much struck by it- The latest novelty at the Concert Populaire was a selection from Liszt's " Tasso," which was played with success on Sunday. At the Chatelet we had a delightful programme. including Gade's poetic ballad, "The Enl-King's Daughter," fragments of Schumann's " Manfred," and selections from Massenet's "Rot de Lahore." HARRY Sr. MICHEL. An Economical wire. Washington Low to Philadelahla Star. Already rumor is busy with the name of one of the leading officials of the Government, who is living in style and driving a pair of fast trotters on a salary of $1,000 a year. There are whisperings about another citizen, whose salary is VA() a year less than the first mentioned, who entertains handsomely in a large and stylish house, and who is known to be amumulating property. He was extremely poor when first appointed to office by Grant. When a man gets an office here and suddenly wets rich, people naturally ask how be can save so much on so small a salary. Senator Edmunds, when asked about a man so situated,receiving $2,- 500 a year, livinz at the rate of $10.000, and al ways accumulatine property,replied, with a sarcastic smile, "Ohl be has an economical wife."
