An Eastern paper says: Of the 5,041,000 Shad which were successfully hatehed and tarned loose Ust year, by far the greater part were placed in the Hudson. During the period of five weeks intervening between Hay 20th and June 10th, 1871, at which date the fishing eeased, owing to the high temperature of the water, the total number of mature Shad caught Was 1643, from which 5,744,000 pawn were extracted. In the year 1870 upwards of .S'O.OOd young Shad were turned loose in the Hudson, which, together with the 3.000,000 fry pat in since, mast eventually increase the annual supply, inasmuch as heretofore the entire yield of the Hudson has beenl?ut 1,000.000. Three years sgo the Shad fisheries of the Hudson were so ran down that very few of them were paying, and many fishermen had discontinued their labors. The yield for the last two years have, however, improved, and with the anaistanoe of a proper law, establishing a weekly closing, there is no doubt but that the fisheries can be restored to their original condition. From the Railway Monitor we learn that 4190 miles of railway were built in this country during we year 1Si3. Toe total number of miles in Pennsylvania is MM. which Is greater 'than that of any ether State exeept Illinois, which has 6479 miles. There were 4119 miles built is Pennsylvania last year. The fee for registering a letter mailed to any Postoffice in the United States or Territories, is now fixed at eight cents, in addition to the regular letter postage. Both fee and postage must be prepaid by postage stamps of the denomination of eight cents, as that sum can be obtained by combining stamps of the most convenient denominations at hand.

He is Acquitted of nil Blame by tbe Police Commissioners. The case of Captain I. W. Lees, charged by B. F. Napthaly with having acted in a manner unbecoming an officer, on the first of last February, In the Sun office, in this city, came up for examination yesterday before tbe Police Commis sioners. The prosecuting witness testified that Captain Lees and Charles De Young went together to the rear of the Suit office, and then came to he front, when Michael De Young beckoned to him to come to him; that the three then went quietly np-stairs, where Michael De Young broke open the door, and Captain Lees made no attempt to prevent the act; that the Captain then, without the authority of law, or without a warrant, arrested the printers, and left them in the custody of Sergeant Ward, for two hours, while he went out with Charles De Young to hunt np Judge Louderback to obtain a proper warrant. Mr. Charles De Young said that he requested Captain Lees to accompany him to the Sun office, as he thought It best that an officer should be on the ground to prevent any disturbance which might occur. W. A. Bushnell, a printer, said that he and other men employed on the Sun, were placed un der arrest by Captain Lees and kept in a room for two hours and a half, and that be was not permitted to leave. He said that no damage was done in the office by the Captain, and that beyond the arrest there was nothing out of the way In tbe conduct of the Captain. Captain Lees read an extract from Bishop's Criminal Law and Criminal Procedure in defence of his act, In which the following appeared: "An officer may confine prisoners until the heat of passion is oyer. An officer may detain a prison. er In a house until the next day if the time is un seasonable. Constables have authority without warrant to arrest those whom tbey see 'engaged in an affray, and detain them until they obtain sureties. If a person ia present when another is committing a crime, it is incumbent upon him to do something to prevent the crime, aand fail ing in this, to bring the criminal to justice. Captain Lees said that he knew that these men were la the act of re-setting a criminal libel. and acted accordingly. The Captain said that this was bis case, and be asked that the charges be dissmiseed. The Board, after a few minutes' deliberation, on motion of the Chief of Police, unanimously dismissed the complaint against the Captain. BEST OS RECORD. "Lady Mae" Tret Five Miles in 13 Minutes.

John Fltzpatrick was again before the Police Judge this morning, with the same old charge booked againt him. via.: wife-beating. This Is the seventh time that he has been before this tri. bunal, but by a singular streak of luck the charge against him was dismissed. The poor woman, who is forced to stand the abuse, took the stand and gave her testimony in a quiet and timid manner. She is In a delicate condition, and the man who could raise his hand againBt her now must be a veritable brute. She said that on Tuesday night he came home drunk, as ususl, and began abusing her. He struck her several times, and finally she ran out of the house, fearful that he would kill her. He fre quently abases her children and sends them oat in the cold. He had often said that he was wil ling to go to Jail for her death. The poor woman said that she did not wish to prosecute him, but she desired that he be made to promise that he would cease abasing her. The charge against him was dismissed. John Leery, another wife beater, was not let off so easy to-day. He waa ordered to pay a fine of (60. ' ' ' ' ' Thomas Bran's bQtrcsr.

Tit Jnrjr Find It aa Ordinavry- Cavae v;.f icide. The Inquest Into the canse of the death of William Freidreichaon, was resumed last night before Coroner Bioe. . Mrs. Ellen Horton, the lady who refused to answer the Coroner, what lof she thought an impertinent question the previous evening, was recalled. She admitted finally that she had a business correspondence with the deceased, but no other. o - THOMAS K. HaBmk aid that he had formerly lived at No. lofl Mason street, at the time that deceased was Hying there. He had known him since the first week of January; I know he attempted to poison biriaif while living la that house; he seemed to have been in considerable trouble In regard to business transactions, and disappointed at his not succeeding ss an aftlst. 1 knew Mr. Freidreichaon Intimately; his temperament was warm and excitable; he was very open and frank, and had no duplicity in his character! I was hot sur prised when I heard that he had shot himself. for the reason that he had threatened to take his own life before, and had made one attempt. A "BUIXrrrjr" MAS . named Frost was called to testify. Be said that he was told that Freidreichaon had shot himself on the morning of the 39th nit. Mr. Harris had told him. Both remarked that we were not surprised at his having shot himself;, my reason was that on the 13th inst. he had taken two-thirds of that bottle 'showing a large bottle of sulphate of morphia. He spoke of his art and the injustice done him; bat that was an evasive answer; he seemed to have something on his mind; he was very despondent, Is shown the letter. That is the one I saw in Mr. Horton 's possession on the 31st nit; all the information given me about the letter was volunteered by Mr. Horton; when I met him he said, " Here is a lettter fox Mr. Freid reichson; I want you to read itf I told him that I did not want to read it; that it belonged to the Coroner, and that it should not ba handed about; he insisted on my reading it; and then opened it and held it before my eyes; I ag un declined; I saw it was a lady's writing; I told him again that I did not wish to read it; he opened it; how- ever, and pointed to the second page. "There, he said, pointing to a particular paragraph, "read that;" I did look and saw by reading a few lines that it was evidently a very private matter, and I did not read further; I have seen it partially published since; I don't think he showed me the letter to publish, as he knew I would not; I know Mr. Pearson; after the letters were burned I had conversation with him; I told him that if the contents of that trunk were destroyed he would get himself in trouble; I did not know at that time they were destroyed. TH2 VXRDICT. This closed the testimony and the jury retired. At ten o'clock the jury returned the following. verdict: 'We, the jury, find that the deceased, Wilhelm Freidreichaon, came to his death on the 38th of March, 1871, at the Cliff House road, in the city and county of Ban Francisco, from the enacts of a pistol shot wound, in the left side of the chest, penetrating the heart and stomach with suicidal intent. The jury also censure the acts of Mr. Pearson and Mrs. Horton for opening the small trunk of the deceased and destroying the contents." ENDED AT L AST. Tne Fa moms Blatelc Will Brokeat la the Probate Court. We have refrained from giving the testimony taken in the Black will case, which has dragged its slow length along in the Probate Court, since the 16th of March, because there was so much of uninteresting matter, which would have crowded out of oar columns much that must of necessity have been pub lished. To understand the real state of the case. only a few words of explanation is necessary. James Black, of Marin county, . died leaving an estate valued at - $3,000,000, In his will he bequeathed to his second wife and her children the balk of his estate, disinheriting (Mrs. Bnrdell) his daughter by his first wife' The daughter contested the will, and a legal struggle ensued, in which some of the best legal talent in the State were employed on both sides. The case vi as tried three times in Marin county, the Jury on each trial failing to agree. It was then transferred to the Probate Court of this city, and has been engrossing the attention of the Court since the 16th of March. ibx veboict. The jury received the charge yesterday at 8 p. M., and at a quarter before nine last night' they came into Court, having agreed on a verdict which is in favor of the contestant, Mrs. Bar-dell.

Tho Preparations for th Balloon Trip To Morrow Afternoon. Extensive preparations are being made for th balloon ascension to take place at Woodward's Gardens, to-morrow afternoon, by Captain Bar. bier, In his Immense silk mail balloon "Le Secours." A large stationary metre has been erected on the ground, which, with the aid of a new force pump, will furnish ten thousand feet of gas each hour. The balloon has been thor oughly, overhauled by Captain Barbier, and new coat of varnish laid on. Its dimen sions are in length, from neck to valve. 80 feet, and in circumference it slightly exceeds 170 feet. Though not so tall as Professor Allen's balloon, its diameter is much greater In shape it is almost a ball. M. Barbier will, in this trip, take with him several carrier pigeons which will be let loose at different points of the voyage, and their flight to the Gardens will be well worth witnessing. Should the sufficient amount of gas he supplied ten or twelve persons will be carried on the voyage, and those who wish to make a pleasant trip across the Bay should apply at once to the agent, M. Genese, at the Gardens. Extra cars will be run on the the Mission street line for the large crowd anti- cipated. Palace Amphitheatre.

PUEADINO HIS OWN CASS, The Local Acumen. Exhibited by Owe ; of the Recaptured Escapes.! ' John Murray, one of the sees pes fron the County Jail 'wag' captured last night, and this morning examined in the Police Court on t charge felony for having broken out of prison. Murray I is a young man about 33 years of age, luick and intelligent. He was inclined to be Just a little surly la his answers, and the patieace of Court was tried to a considerable extent. He waa asked if be had counsel. No," he replied, "I can defend mjself; I guess I know more about my case than anybody else. don't IT" . i As was subsequently shown he did. That he had some legal acumen was made evident. Keeper Sheppard was placed on the stand and testified that the defendant had been confined in jail on a commitment regularly issued. On Sat. nrday night he and four others were confined in the cell No. 8T, and on Bund&y morning they were not there. They had escaped by a hole sat in the top of the cell. " At the conclusion of this testimony Hurray addressed the Court: "As I understand the law." said he, "the statement of this man does not go to show any felony on my part. He does not charge that I cut the hole or did any thing else than make my escape by it. This, your honor, is only a misdemeanor, and to that I shall only plead guilty." - "SACBAMXKTO BILL O XHS STAID. The defendant desired to call "Sacramento Bill,", or William Clark, another of the recaptured escapes. He was brought in from an ante room, attired in a red shirt, black dress coat and pants. His hair was allowed to grow long, waa. curled ever his left eye, which was bright and piercing. ' ' "' ' Q. "Bill," said Murray, "yon hare made a statement relative to the escape. Bow how was it done? and who cut the holer A. Well, I have said it was 'cut with a ease knife, but I decline to say who cut it. I am not here on trial and yon are.' Q. Well, did I take any active part in cutting our the hole. A. "Well, 1 dont know that yon took any ac tive part in cutting the hole," replied Bill changing his quid from one side to the other, "but I do know that yon rere as active as any in getting out of it." By the Prosecuting Attorney Did an of yo.u go out of that hole together T A. Oh, no, you know it was not large enough for that, we went out one at time. I don't know who wrote the poetry, it was good though, wasn't it Bill was remanded into the custody of the Sheriff, and notwithstanding that Murray was willing to plead guilty to malicious mischief, he was held to answer to the charge of felony, with bail fixed at $3,000. , POLICEMAN NO. 133. An Officer Who Should be Taught His Duties, Also to be a Gentleman. Though our new and efficient policemen have trod their beats for a number of weeks already, it is painfully evident that there are a few of them who have yet much to learn. They should learn first and foremost to he gentlemen, and then to distinguish gentlemen from criminals. We Were told this morning of an outrage committed by one of these petty officers last evening, which merits the censure of the Police Commissioners, if not their more serious notice. A gentleman, connected with the Exak-ma Office, who was passing along Lombard street, above Mason, last night, at 10 o'clock, was somewhat startled at hearing a gruff hail from the other side of the ttreet. He paid no attention to It, thinking it was some drunken loafer. When It was repeated, the gentleman turned and saw th one who had given utterance to. it advancing towards him; " Here, stop there," exclaimed the approaching party, " I want to know where you live." Be sure the ruffianly voice in which this waa said. and the bullying manner did little to ire the gentleman addressed, and he told this other, in no very soft words that the whole matter was none of his basin ess. At the same time he saw a star, So. 122, upon the bully's breast, and was more surprised than ever that one, who was delegated to protect th peace and quiet of the neighborhood, should assume the line and air of a highwayman. "I am looking out for all suspicious characters," growled this model officer, "and if you don't tell me your name and residence, I shall take yon In." The gentleman saw that he had a fool to deal with, and not a sensible guardian of the peace, and so to save further trouble gave his address. He, however, got the number of this efficient officer, and has given it to us for publication. It is Ho. 122. Another officer came;np about the time the gentleman Lwas moving off, and when appealed to for an explanation of the other's con duct, he seemed heartily ashamed of it and could make no defence. Ho. 122 positively denied to his brother officer that he had stopped the gentltT man. Let the Chief look into this matter, and teach No. 122 to be as much of a gentleman aa his limited brain will permit. AN OCEAN-SIDE AFFKAV. Terribl and Bloody Cutting- Scrap at at Public Hons. Charles Johnson, a German, was brought to the city prison last night drunk, and covered with blood. He was cast into one of the cells, and this morning, at halt after nine o'clock, a charge of assault to murder was entered against his name. To-day at noon an Examinee reporter Interviewed the prisoner and learned the particulars of the offence of which he Is charged. Johnson says that he has been employed at the Ooean-Side House for the last three months ss hostler. On Wednesday evening he was paid $30 by the proprietor, Frank Green, and he then went off on a spree. Going over to the Lake House he had several rounds of drink. and then decided to go home. He was almost drunk but he bought . two soda bottles full of whisky" and set out on the road. Arrived at the Ocean-side House be went into the kitchen, and began treating all round. Frank Green came In and ordered him away from the place.' He refused to go, and Green advanced upon him. He struck him once in the face, when Johnson drew from his pocket a pruning-knife with a blade about six Inches long, hooked at the end: He struck Green in the shoulder with it, making an ugly wound, and the two then grappled. While they were down Johnson managed to hook the sharp point of the blade into the calf of Green's leg, and with a strong pull, cut the muscles, tendons and all away from the bone, leaving the flesh hanging only by the skin- At this point the cooks and waiters rushed in and tried to secure Johnson. He was furious with rage and drink, and swore that he would kill every man In the house. All were afraid to approach him, and he was about to pat an end to Green, now rendered helpless, when he was knocked senseless by a club in the hands of the colored porter. Green was put to bed and a doctor sent for At first he pronounced the wound on the leg fatal, but subsequently managed to staunch the flow of the blood, and his recovery Is now probable although amputation may be necessary. Johnson expresses much regret at the result of his drunken rage.

Mr. Morton attempted the old subterfuge of accusing California and Nevada of disloyal! ty, because they looked with suspicion on the Government's unfulfilled promises to pay. He wanted to know whether th Union would have been saved without legal tender notes, and Jones answered promptly that without them It would have been saved at a cost of less than a thousand millions.
