THVBBDAV BVENING, MAY ai. ntlM paper torn Uia Lwseat Clrculatlom f ur Bvenlns paper published In tk V ill tad States. itoTUne as an AdTertlsIns jn idiom la therefore apparent Tbe Clileago Convention Gen. Grant. Very much lees than the usual interest attached to the assembling of the representatives of one of the great parties to present a candidate for the highest office within the gift of the people seems to be attracted towards Chicago. The nomination of Gen. Grant is accepted as a forgoing conclusion. The acquisition of his support to either of the two rival political organizations now contending for supremacy, would have secued no inconsiderable attention twelve months ago, but he has within that time so thoroughly committed himself to the Eadical party that he is now regarded as merely ratifying a bargain long ago closed. There was a time when Gen. Grant was looked upon as an eminently safe man for the position of Chief Magistrate of the Republic. Through his good fortune he succeeded to the command of the Union armies alter the strength of the rebellion had exhausted itself, and "When its discomfiture was regarded by the Confederate chieftains themselves as but a question of time. He succeeded in closing an undertaking in Which abler men had failed, and in the exultation of success Lhe people generously forbore to criticise the details of a campaign, involving fearful, and as many believed, reckless loss of life in its execution, and marked by nothing original in its progress or inception. Still the credit of bringing the war to a close belonged to him, and his fame as a soldier was forever identified with the success of the Republic in a contest in which its life was staked. His military fortune gave him a strong claim on the good will of the Northern people. The South had not merely been vanquished, but it accepted the consequence of its defeat with a frankness and unanimity which had hardly been expected by the most enthusiastic supporters of the attempt to restore a Union of self - governing States by the experiment of war. Of all other men General Grant had the strongest motives for desiring that the war should accomplish its avowed, objects, in the perpetuation of the Union without detriment to the equality of the States and without infringing upon the rights of any portion of the people of a common country. All that was needed to round off and complete his fame, was to prove toy his administration of the government if elected to the Chief Magistracy that the war on the part of the South was a blunder as as well as a crime, and that equality within a government which commanded the respect of the world, and was able to treat with its enemies in a spirit of gay and festive defiance, more than compensated it for any advantage it could hope to secure by the establishment of its 'national independence. If Grant had been a statesman as well as a soldier he, more than any other man, would have occasion to regret te existing condition of the country, for we are seen still to be denied the promise held out to us by success in the war, until already men begin to ask themselves, "what is all this worth?" The war if it has not failed, has not accomplished the purposes for which it was waged, and Grant, more than any other man, if he took a broad view of the situation, would be under the necessity of complaining of the conduct of the politicians who have cheated us out of the fruits ot victory for a sinister purpose. It seemed, twelve months ago, as if General Grant might command the firstposition in the Eepublic, and secure for himself the credit of carrying out in peace the objects rendered attainable by success in war. He chose to sacrifice national fame by permitting the politicians to trade on his reputation. The conservative section of tho Republican party presented his name for the Presidency in order to maintain their position within their party. The Radicals shrewdly showed so much opposition to his nomination as to compel him to conciliate them, and in order to do so he sacrificed every recommendation that could be fairly urged in his favor to that large class of citizens who desire to be rid of sectional contention,and who are determined to secure the pacification of tUe country and its return to its normal condition through whichever party gives the best hope of attaining those desirable ends. Grant was known to be in favor of what is called President Johnson's policy of restoration. Up to the time he was dazzled by the prize of the Presidency he never took issue with the President, except when he put forward an intimation that the terms Grant accorded to Lee and liisfollowers did not screen them from the liability they incurred as citizens. It was folly to believe that the vengeance the Radicals clamored for could be wreaked upon the South if, as Grant contended, the men through whom the Republic could have been overthrown, if at all, were covered by the terms granted to the rebel armies on their surrender. The Radicals are hard taskmasters, and when Grant showed a disposition to yield to them they were not sparing in their exactions. They demanded that he should eat the wordi he used in commendation of the President's policy and he did it. They required that ho should, surrender to Stanton the War Office, which he was in honor bound to restore to the hands of his superior officer, from whom he received it. To justify himself in doing so he made assertions which were denounced as false by every member of the Cabinet. But he did not hesitate to do this dirty job. By the most shameless intimidations and threats an attempt was made to remove the President, and every agency the Radicals could use was employed for the purpose. Grant was expected to suffer himself to be made a party to this scheme. His position as the chief General of the army, his soldierly fidelity to his commander - in - chief, his fealty to tho law as a citizen entrusted in troubled times with exceptional power the fact that he was himself a candidate for the succession all joined in enforcing on him the necessity and decency of keepirg apart from the impeachment business. But the Radicals required his endorsement of their revolutionary action, and they got it While the Senate was de liberating as a Court of law, Grant was quoted as authority that the safety of the country demanded the President s removal He went further. He had the brazen effront ery to declare that bloodshed would follow if the elected President of the Republic was permitted to retain possession of his office. He has shrank from nothing which was denounced by an implacable faction. He has appeared its ostensible opposition by acts which other men would not perform for all the offices on earth. Over a nomination secured by such means the politicians will not be able to manufacture even the semblance of enthusiasm - He will to - day receive a barren lionor too dearly earned. Now, if ever, a man should preside over the destinies of the country now if ever ; the man who needlessly consented to be the tool of faction confessedly unequal to the task of governing the Republic ought to be overwhelmingly defeated. Among the passengers who ride down to the ferry in the railroad cars from the outer paTts of the city, the proposition to try the Woodbefry steam car in this city is a topic of general and favorable comment. There is a strong public opinion in favor of giving the experiment of steam as a motive power on our city railroads a fair trial. All who have to nde night and morning for any distance on the city railroad cars, feel that they are unnecessarily wasting a great deal of valuable time, and putting up with discomforts in overcrowded cars, which could he obviated if steam were used as a motive power. There is a limit of strength and endurance to horseflesh, but none to the iron steed, which if can be tamed and properly curbed must supersede ihe hard worked and inadequate quadrupeds on all our railroads. If Mr. Richardson cannot raise the whole of the six hundred dollars necessary to try the experiment with the Woodberry car at East New York, let him make an appeal to the car travelling public of Brooklyn, who are numerous enouho; to raise the whole amount by a penny subscription. Street Repairing;. Some more effective system for keeping the street pavements m a tolerable state of repair than that which has heretofore - prevailed Is obviously needed. We doubt if we could point to aDy street in the city, that has been paved over three years, in which the pavement is in anything like decent order. Most of the older streets are in a very bad condition. Money is expended every year, fifteen thousand dollars last year to repair the streets, but little or nothing appears to be done towards improving tho condition of the pavementi. The Common Council has eighteen thousand dollars to spend on the streets this year, and tho Board has shown a desire to make the best use of thi3 money. The subject is now under the consideration of the Grading and Paving Committee, who have before them the proposals of contractors for doing the work. Instead of making one job ot it for tbe whole city, it is proposed to divide the appropriation up among the wards in proportion to the number of miles of paved streets In each, then let each Alderman see to the work, and see that the money is expended where it is most needed. It is not necessary that there should be a separate contract for each ward the work could be done cheaper by giving the whole city to one party, the work to be paid fornot by the job, but by measurement. For instance Mr. Frank Swift proposes to do street repairing at six cents per square yard. At this rate the eighteen thousand dollars would pay for three hundred thousand square yards of repai ring, an amount of work that would put the streets in tolerable condition, and if the ward plau is carried out the benefit would be equitably distributed over the city. If any locality was neglected the residents would know where to look, the Alderman of the ward could be called to account. If the streets are ever to be kept in good repair there must be some better regulation for plumbers and gas fitters who require the pavement to be taken up to make gas or water connections with buildings. These parties know little and care less about how a pavement should be laid; they fill up the excavations they make in a hurried manner, put the stones down any how, and a week after their patch of paving sinks below the street level. The Common Council or the Water Commissioners, should adopt an ordmance prohibiting any unauthorized persons from taking up the paving, and should grant no permits to plumbers or gas fitters to do so. When they want the pavement taken up for their business they should be compelled to employ the contractor for the street repairing to do the work, he being bound to do it at fixed rates. There would be some chance then of keeping the streets in decent repair. As it is, there is hardly a block in the city on which the pavement does not bear evidence of disturbance, for plumbing purposes and unskillful and careless relaying, inunevenness of the surface, it is not right to tax the public to do the work over after these parties, and the plumbers should be obliged to employ and pay a competent, responsible person, who will leave the pavement in as good order as he found it. The present condition of the streets is discreditable to the city, and it is time that the authorities had not only awakened to the fact, but that they did something. The Common Council Committee seems to have some good practical ideas, the ward plan, and contracting the work out at so much a yard for actual repairs, are both worth trying. Tbe Improvement of DusUwIck Creek. A company with the comprehensive title of The Eureka Basin, Warehouse and Manufacturing Company of Long Island, obtained a charter from the late Legislature, the object ot which is the improvement of Bushwick Creek. This creek which divides Greenpoint from Williamsburgh, is not over a mile in length, and except within two or three hundred yards of its mouth is not at present navigable, or of any use whatever. It runs through a belt ot low marshy ground that will never be desirable for building improvements except for manufacturing purposes. The best use the Creek can be put to is to make it, and the adjacent lands, available for commercial and manufacturing purposes after the plan of the Gowanus Canal. Water communication is very desirable as it tends to cheapen the carriage of heavy freight and bulky commodities, but we doubt the advautage to a city of being inter sected by canals, particularly where it has such an expanse of water front on a navigable river as Brooklyn possesses. But having foolishly allowed the control of the rfver front to psss into the hands of private parties, we can do no better now than make the most of our water facilities and dock out the creeks. The Company referred to is empowered to obtain by purchase, and hold the swamp lands lying ong the whole length of the creek, which Extends in a devious course from the river to Graham avenue, to "excavate, build, form, and construct, and maintain one or more basins, docks, wharves, and piers, and to erect suitable warehouses, mills, furnaces, foundries, factories, shops, and all other such buildings and improvements as may be necessary for the purpose of docking, loading and unloading of vessels, and for the storage of goods wares and merchandise, and for carrying on generally the business of a dock, warehousing and manufacturing company," &c, from which it will be seen that this is quite an extensive and important enterprise, that will add much to the material wealth and business of the Eastern District. Foht Greene. Under a law passed by the Legislature of 1867 the control of all the city parks is placed in the hands of the Prospect Paik Commissioners. Our readers will remember that a report was recently presented to the Common Council in behalf of a minor ity of the Commissioners favoring the sale of Fort Greene. The proposition met with no favor from the public and was opposed by a majority of the Commissionera. The spot is historical ; it commands the finest view of Brooklyn, New York City, and the bay to be obtained anywhere. It is so easy of access from the lower and more thickly populated section of the city, that it will always be popular. The residents living east and south of the Park have a per manent interest in its preseivatton, for it act3 as a sort of breakwater for the protection of the very valuable property situated in these directions. It these reasons were not sufficient to save an old popular re sort, aud an historical revolutionarr battle ground, an all - sufficient one would be presented in the fact that it is not within the power of the city to sell Fort Greene. rue city nas oniy an easement upon the land. It acquired it for the purpose of a Park and if it were converted to any other the title to the property would revert to the orig inal owners or their heirs.. It being neither expedient nor possible to carry out the idea of the minority of the Commission ers, we believe it has been decided by the Commission to enter at an early day upon the improvement of the Park, so that it may become what it can be easily made one of the chief attractions of Brooklyn a spot to which we can invite strangers, and by reviving the memories of the early struggle lor independence, foster t patriotic pride common to all sections TJie landscape architects employed on Pros pect Park have already devised a plan for the improvement of Fort Greene, and we hope to see it earned into ellect at an early dav. The walks will be regraded, shade trees will be planted and the grounds will be surround ed by a semi - rustic stone wall three feet high which with the addition of a dyke will afford sufficient protection easily kept in order. The Commissioners are also empowered to employ watchmen for the preservation of order and decorum at all times. . When the designs of the Commissioners are carried out. Brooklyn will have within the heart of the city a more extensive and more beautiful popular resort than any other city we know of can boast. Prospect Park will afford amule accommodation for the riding and driving public, fort Greene will be always accessible to the masses, and, despite the at tractions of its more costly rival, Fort Greene will be, we think, emphatically the breathing place for the people. Gratifying news is received from Mexico, revolutionary uprisings against the Government are put down as fast as they spring up. At the same time they spring up as fast as they are put down. To - day is Ascension Thursday. It is being observed at Chicago, where the Republican party is going up. Topics of To - pay. Yesterday the House of Representatives, after Ingereoll, of Illinois, had made another explanation, after a resolution of Inquiry as to the salary and mileage paid the Indian Commissioners had been adopted, alter the submission of papers relative to the Bale of Iron - clads, after the introduction of a bUl about a canal at Pass l'Outre on the Mississippi, and after the Speaker had stated that the Bummer dress of matting was ready for the chamber, adjourned until Saturday. Senate not in session. The mild and milky Wendell Phillips hands down the names of Fessenden and Trumbull "bloodstained, to the loathing of history." At first he proposed to extend this fine rhetorical figure to the names of Lee and Davia, but upon reflection gracefully begs pardon ol the ex - Confederate President and General for asEocialiog each a despicable crime (as voting against tho Eleventh Article) with theirs." Then, discarding the vernacular, Phillips procoeds to curse in a dead language: "Judex damnatur" which means " the Chiet Justice be d d" etc. After this the piping of T. Tilton, who aims at being a Phillips in miniature, falls very flat. In the French Legislative Body yesterday Minister Bouhcr made a speech in support of the Government policy of Free Trade, which he contended was the basia ol the country's future greatness and commdrcia prosperity. The treaties relating thereto with Great Britain and other countries will be adhered to. The business of the Chicago Convention yesterday may be thus summarized : Called to order by Governor Ward, Chairman of the National Committee, who made a speech. Prayer by Bishop Simpson, of the Methodist Church. Carl Schurz Temporary Chairman, and made a speech. Committees on organization, resolutions, and order of business appointed. Ex - Governor Hawley Permanent President, and made a Bpeech. A Vice - Pre3ident and a Secretary for each State, but all not allowed to make speeches. Report from Soldiers' and Sailors' Convention received. Premataro attempt to nominate Grant by acclamation defeated. Speech of Ex - Govcrnor Brown, of Georeia, who described the process of his conveision from Secessionism to Republicanism. Rules of order adopted. Debate on parly name, which was Anally fixed aB National Union Republican. Adjournment until 10 o'clock to day . A London correspondent is very severe on the Telegraph of that city and its chief contributor, Georgo Augustus Sala. Tho Telegraph is charged with having "introduced into English journalism a sort of stucco style," and the fact that it alone of ail English papers is permitted to be sold on tho boulevards of Paria Is explained on the hypothesis that the Emperor, being opposed to freedom of the press, desires that his subjects shall Bee what it can produce. The correspondent marvels that the few worthier members of the Telegraph staff can tolerate "companionship of such vagabonds as Sala,'' and thinks it cause of grati. tude that he has contracted to write for uo other paper. Two imporlant questions now agitate the public mind of England and America. I. What shall be done with Colenso ? His case, by no means a new one, is revived by the action of the British Government, reported by cable, in forbidding his deposition. The ecclesiastical authorities, after a careful deliberation their judgment having been tally determined on before entering upon the investigation resolved that Colenso was a heretic and au inQdel, bringing great scandal on the Establishment, and' that be must bo re moved from bis Bishopric of Natal. But the freel thinking Bishop has a friend at Court, aud for tho present is a great deal Bafer than the Irish Church II, Is Patti married f Paris and London papers, regarded as authority, say she is ; and add that the happy and impatient huBband, the Marquis de Catix, obtaining leave of absence from the Emperor's household, at the earliest moment followed his wife to London, where she, Kellogg, Van Zandt, Lucca, Titiens, and Nillson, are sinking with brilliant success. On the other hand, Salvator Patti, the father of Adelina, and believed to be inteieateil 'affectionately and financially in his daughter, sa; a the statement as to her marriage is totally uniiue. Aud thus the matter stands. Dickens has returned &afely to his own his native land, and the English papers in recording the fact take occasion to remark on the relations of the two countries as influenced by bis visit and described in his speech at tho New York Press dinner. None of the jonrnalB discover any amazing or revolutionary resultB consequent upon the journey, but they quite generally agree that the people ol England and America are very worth people, and that they know it. The Saturday Bevieiv pleasantly rallies Dickens upon his poat - prandial eloquential effort, cuafl's about tho "obese" porter at the British Museum, the "earth quake" and the "comet," the "Arctic fox and bear," and reflects "how pleasant It would be to live in a world where it was sliyays after dinner," and adds some ill nalurcd words of its own about American peculiarities. The Cbicagoans are to be congratulated on their Immense and miraculous opera house, of which a good deal has been heard in one way or another, and now something new is reported. A newspaper correspondent says it will accommodate 4,000 persons. This we believe is more than any other place of amusement in the country will do. The correspondent goes on to say that when the Republican Convention met yesterdoy the Opera House was found to contain twice as many people as it would hold, or about 8,000. This is the latest miracle, and must be very encouraging to the Radical party in whose interest it was perfected. Some time ago " A Country Merchant" dwelt at length in the columns of the Tribune on the alleged immorality of the " White Fawn" and kindred dramatic compounds of music, dancing and scenery, and promised a continuation of the die course. Ho has either gone home to Sangamon County or fallen a vie. tim to theatrical corruption. At all events he is seen no more in the pages of the THbune, audthat journal this morning thus sharply assails its virtuous rural correspondent: "Not every poor ballet - girl, who dances in spangles, is the wanton that she is thought to be, by yonder country merchant, who expectorates blended profanity, morality, and tobacco juice, as he denounces the New York stage, and the wickedness of this dreadful city." Which iB true, although the Tribune toys if, and generous, if not to the "country merchant," at least to the poor but honest ballet - girl. Among late fashion news is the report of a semen by the Bishop of Geneva against the Btyles of feminine apparel. Tresses and trams and low - decked dresses and mountainous accumulations of false hair and diamonds aud jewels and costly laca and the whole extravagant inventory of woman's wardrobe was sub jeeted to Bevere and direct ecclesiastical censure. The discourse doesn't seem to have done muchgood. The bills of modUlee are as heavy and toilet eccentrici ties as obtrusive as ever. If the Bishop would strike at the root of the evil he must appeal to, 'the private car of the Empress and persuade Eugenie to establish a precedent of retrenchment. The lottery and gift enterprize people are coming to grief, and the action of the courts seems likely to abate several flagrant nuisances. The managers of a firm which promised to, but neyer did, distribute among the holders of one dollar tickets, prizes of greenbacks,watcheB, pianos, etc., and which pub lished in connection with the business a weekly paper got up in imitation of Harper's Weekly, have been brought before a New York judge and permanently er joined in the practice of their pleasant scheme. The agents of the Sbelbyville lottery in Kentucky, have been subjected to legal proceedings, their drawinga prohibited, and their money and correspondence seized. As policy playing is based on this lottery there is great excitement among that class of the white and colored population of New York who squander their stamps, devote their waking hours, and surrender their dreams to the combination of lucky numbers that are always unlucky . A CUanco for tUe Benevolent A melancholy Case. On the 27th ot November last a little girl, about three years of age, was standing on a branch, of the Long Island Railroad track at East New York, at a moment when the cars were approaching at their full rate of speed. The child was not aware of the imminent danger in which she was placed and played about the track, and the sleepers, unconscious of the terrible death that threatened her. A poor fellow named Henry Eckerts saw the jeopardy of the child, and rushed to saveber. He succeeded in snatching the child from the very jaws of death, and threw it to one Bide. But in doing so he slipped, and fell across the track. The "iron borBe" came dashing forward, Eck erts could not save himself, and the cars passed over him, inflicting injuries from which he died a very few hours after. The Coroner's Inquest was held, the ter - rible news was communicated to the wife and children of Eckerts and the body was burled. The unfortu nate wife of this man appears to be a very deserv ing person, and has used her utmost ex - tions to obtain some kind of employment since the death of her husband, but has been unable to do so, and to - day she is on the verge of starvation. Three little babes, the eldest but five years, and the youngest only one year, are crying for even tho most common necessities of life. The poor woman Is nearly distracted and knows not what to do. Her husband had wealthy relatives, who with' proverbial hardihood have cast her and her children aside, and to - day she knowB not where to - morrow's meals will come from. Here is a case for the philanthropists aud humanitarians. Tbe unfortunate man, impulsed by one of the noblest traits of manhood, placed his life in jeopardy, saved a fellow being and was himself terribly mangled. To - day he lies in a puper's grave, and his wife and little ones arc shedding bitter tears of sorrow and are ciylrjg for I read. Here is a chance for the bonevolent wul any one help her r The New Ship Panama. This fine new ship, built at the yard of Messrs. Webb & Bell of Greenpoint, Is now fuUy completed and ready for sea.

Dear Eagle : Having all my lifetime been accustomed to the rigid observance of the Sabbath, and having enjoyed the day of rest in onr quiet and beautiful city, thanks to the beneficent metropolitan police, in a manner becoming a good Christian, I have been completely shocked by the population of Berlin, and their mode of commemmoratlng the day of the Lord. With the exception of the time ocenpied by the divine service, the Sabbath of Berlin is the noisiest day in the week. The bustle of excur lt ns commences at an early homvgnd the public conveyances are completely crammed with pleasnre - seekers hurrying towards the city gates. Cavalcades of Sunday riders disturb your morning repose, and you cannot help pitying the poor fellows who sally forth on a pleasure trip, and will return, in the evening, with a thorongh rheumatism from tbe unusual exertion . At eleven o'clock a brilliant military parade, frequently honored by tho presence of his Majesty and tho royal family, attracts dense crowdB to the "Linden" to enjoy the sight, and the exquisite music of a military band. After three o'clock the public gardens in the neighborhood of the city are filled with thousands of people, who listen to thelatrains of flue conceits, and indulge in cafe and lager bier. These assemblages seem to comprise all classes, and both sexes ; the nobility, the professional man, merchants and worklngmen, parents and children, in fact a mixture of the most Incongruous elements. It would seem as if Berlin gathered'at some fifty places on Sundays. However distasteful this picture must appear to a man who has acquired different doctrines of religiouB observance of the Sabbath, I could not help observing the perfect order, comtesy and congeniality of the crowds. Indeed, Mr. Editor, it seems as if there is lees tmbulence, and less work for the servants of public order than on the week days. I have posted myEelf at the Potsdam gate and watched for two honrs the returning crowds, withoutcounting more than five inebriates. In the evening all theatres, royal and private, are of course open and generally well filled, and all tastes are suited, from the classical opera down to Punch and Judy ; in fact everybody seems to enjoy himself aud to save up his good cheer for this very day, and determine to make the best of it. THE CHURCHES are bat scantily attended ; the most distinguished and eloquent divineB may succeed in attracting a goodly congregation, but the dead heads generally preach to empty bencheB. The afternoon service is attended but by old people, who seem to hold their siesta at church. These Germans, and especially the Berliners, are strange people, not at all like us Americans ; we occupy onr Sundays In religions contemplation either at church or at home, but they seem to think that the Sabbath is especially created tor jollifications, and for drinking three times as much lager as on ordinary doys. What a splendid field here would be for the vigilance and energy of our M. P.'s ; Kennedy could elerualize himeeir. Wby does not Mr. Greeley undertake a trip to Berlin to diffuee his temperance doctrines ? And as to Mr. Bergb, he would be in his very element. I am sure he would unseat two or three hundred Sunday riders, for their horses are mostly in a very dilapidated condition,not to speak of those that have the uee of but three legs. I once attended Mr. Beecher's church and heard him say that the defect of the Germans in religious sentiment was canBCd by the Government interfering, and forcing down their throats their religions terfots. But I think he is mistaken ; the apathy and apparent Insolence ot the Germans for the public worship is produced by the conversion of the pulpit into apolitical rostrum, and a mixing up of religion with politics. The liturgy in which the minister prayB for the King, the roj al family and followers, takes about half an hour, whereas the Gospel is disposed of in ten minutes, and the concluding prayer inculcates obedience to tho powers that be. Moreover, the churches of Berlin are not quite as comfoitably gotten up as with us. They are cold, bleak, withered and damp bulld - lngB, partly the resting piaco of former generations, not gotten up in the parlor style of our places of wor. chip, neither carpeted nor heated, nor lit by gas, nay even the daylight has but sparse access to the interior thanks to the narrow Gothic windows. Nor are the churches the only places where young men can meet tho objects of their admiration or the young ladies show their exquisite toilet. Considering all this, I am not at alt astonished to see the churches deserted and the public gardens patronized, where hundreds of thousands can ' breath a mouthful of fresh air," as the Herald cae it, and listen to the enchantment of musical concord, and discuss the events of the day. The social habits of the Germans, and especially of the working classes, have their pertinent domestic reasons. According to tho latest census of Berlin more than ten per cent of Lhe inhabitants reside in cellars and subterranean qnartera,bnt inefficlenlly sup plied with air and light. If any body does, IheBepoor people nee d " change of air," and Sunday is the; only day they can accomplish it. Tbe better classes can well afford to he very religious, for they have six days of rest whilst these poor people have but one. To tell you the truth, Mr. Editor, the religions ease of those GermanB is very catching, and I feel the firm principles of my religions training wonderfully shaky already, when I see these happy and harmless crowds enjoy in their manner their Sabbath, which they consider infinitely more rational than the American Sabbath. I don't think I shall succeed in making many proselytes here, and shall bo glad to hold my own. THE EE PALE OF STREETS. The Common Council Committee on Grad ing and Paving, Aldermen Daniels, (Chairman) Elliott, McGroarty, Thornc, and Clancy, had before them last evening, the various bids which have beon seat in for repairing the streets of the different wards of the city for the - current year, Several other Aldermen were present, and took part in the diBCussion. It will be recollected that the Common Council at first adver tised for proposals for repairing all the streets of the city for lhe year; but bids of such preposterously email amounts were sent In that it was evident some at leaBt, of the bidders had no idea of doing the work thoroughly. Then tho Board advertised for bids sep arately lor eacn ward, ana referred tne proposals for each ward to tho Alderman of the ward for his decis ion. In most cases, still, the offers were plainly beneath what the work could be done for, and the whole matter was then returned again to tho Grading and Paving Committee. Besides .the bids for separate wards, there was one from Mr. Francis Swift, who, instead of Earning a gross sum per ward, offered to do whatever repair he might be called on to make, in any part of the city, during the year, at six coats per tquare yard of paved surface. Ald.BeigeD, in bringing the subject before the Committee, stated that last year, when the work of repairing etreets was assigned to one man for a sneci - nmau aim . h n m hnln . . tUn V " - u iuou riiiA., uui. nuuicu, luc uiuutj wilts U - ieu. UD, but many breaks in his own and other wardB were not repaired. The Board last year awarded the contract to Mr. Gleavy, who was not tho lowest bidder by about $5,C00. They could not have had less work done for tne money if they had taken the loweBt bid. Thero waB much work leftundono laet year in his ward and some of the streets there were now in a wretched condition. He suggested whether now It would not be nest, in uruur to secure umiormity ot action, to award the contract for each ward to the lowest hid fnr iho ward. Aid. Elliott said tbe lowest bid for his ward was far less than it would take to repair one street properly. oiu. oaiu luu iuwcdi uius lui eacil Woru, au - ded together, amounted to $9,940, and as thero was neatly double this amount left in the fund applicable to the purpose, there would still be money left to supplement the deficiencies of the contractors or to meet exigencies that might arise. Another plan which uiigut ob uuupiea wouiq do to aiviae tne tuna fairly among the warde, and let each Alderman see to the ripair of his own sireets, sb far as the money would eo . It would not do to divide the money rateably according to the proportion in which it was contributed, as some waras with fewer streets had a greater pro - Eerty valuation than otherB. The fairest plan would e to divide according to tho length of paved streets in each ward. He thought Mr. Swift's plan of bidding by the yard would require too much trouble in inspecting ond measuring the work done; and if they appointed a special inspector, it might be vetoed, as tbs one on Powers street had been. Aid. O'Brien thought that one of the City Surveyors couta do the whole Inspecting of this work for the en ure cny. Aid. Elliott suggested that each Alderman should see to the work teat was done in his own ward. Aid. Bergen considered that auAllerman had enough to do without following round to measure work after a contractor. Aid. Guck said It would be absurd to award the contract for his ward to the lowest b;dler, the price being $247 for ten miles of streets. Nor would it bo satisfactory to give a contract for the whole city In one gross sum as was done last year. All that hiB ward got last year was tbe work of ten men, for a single day only. Aid. Brady remarked that much reDoir which was needed laet year in his ward wsb left undone, and Borne of tbe streets were in a very baa coaditlon. In one street the ruts were so deep that a horse worth $330 lost bis life by an accident caused by tho state of the roadway a few days ago. He thought, instead of dividing the money in tbe fund according to tho length of paved streets, they ought to divide it among the wards according to the respective length of streets which needed repairs. Some wards had mostly new streets which needed little or no repair. Aid. O'Brien Bald that Colnmbia street, Third Place, and other streets in his ward, were In a very bad state, and he hoped that the Board would hot let another meeting go by without decldingupon some plan under which work could be begun. He objected to taking the lowest bids, for In hiB ward Le fouLd that the lowest bidder stated that he had put in the bias without reading the specification which had been drawn up of the work to be done. Aid. Bergen remarked that it would be quite open to the Board to accept a bid like that of Mr. Swift, at a given price per square yard of repairs, alter the money in tbe fund had been apportioned among the various wards. Mr. Swift said, he had bid for all the repairs which might be needed, and which ne might be ordered to make, throughout the city, but at a price so low that ho could not afford to take single wardf , or less than the whole city. If the Board awarded blmthe contract, he would receive money, nnder the terms of bis bid, only as the work was actually doie; and he would guarantee that the whole of the streets should be put in tborough repair, if the Board so wiehed, aud If the $18,000 in the fund would not last out, at six eents a yard, for the work the Board oidered. he would go on and trust to nextears appropriations, if they desired him to do so. His opinion was, that to put all the streets of the city in good repair, at the price of six cents per yard, would require from thirty to forty thousand dollars. On motion of Aid. Guck, the Chairman and Aid. Elliott were appointed as a sub - committee to confer with lhe Water Board and the AeBCBSors, bo as to ascertain as near as possible how many miles of paved streets are in each ward, wiih a view to an equitable apportionment of ibe fund for repairs in each ward. The Committee then rose. Amusements. English Opera. "Martha" will be given in English at tbe Academy by Miss Rlchings's troupe.

VIEWS OF C0BBESP0SDMT3. Tbe middle Street Act. To the Editor of the Brooklyn Eagle : Will yon kindly inform me of the fate of the bill to improve Middle street. Has it passed both couscb and become a law? A reply through the columns of your paper will oblige an ItfTEBESTED IiEADEB. The above bill passed both houses, and would have become a law by this time, had it net mysteriously disappeared somewhere between the Assembly Clerk's office and the Governor's office. The clerk has a - ec - ord of having sent it to the Governor, but the Governor has no record of having received it. If it be found at any time this year It will be signed and will become a law ; if not, not. Ed. Eaglb. Tbe Division of the Eighth Ward - A Question.

The Legislature having passed an act dividing the Eighth Ward and creating tho Twenty - aecond,can those officers who were elected for aud to represent tho old Eighth now represent the Twenty - second Waid? Can those who were elected from the Eighth Ward and now reside in the Twenty - second continue to represent tho former? Are not alt the offices in tho Twenty - second Ward now vacant, and is not that Ward entitled to go into an election to fill those ofilces for the unexpired term. And the Elshth Ward, also, for officers as do not reside in the Ward. By giving your views upon this subject you will Oblige A VOTED OF THE TWENTY - SECOND WARD. Public School No. 15. To the Editor of the Brooklyn Eagle : I was pleased to see in last evening's Eagle a dtmand on our Board of Education to place Mrs. Dunkley in charge of No. 15. This is just and should be listened to. My children attend that school, and nothing would tempt me to second the motion, but an honest conviction that Mrs. Dunkley's promotion would be not only for the interests of No. 15, bnt would also add greatly to the efficiency of the profession. At present a man Principal has no fear that his abler assistant may Bueceed him, for she is a woman. Let our Board of Education Btir up competition by appointing Mrs. Dunkley to a ptinclpalehip, as suggested by your correspondent last evening, and our public school matters will assume new life. Try it. Don't let Mrs. Dunkley leave No. 15 for a field that wilt offer full scope for her ability. State Stueet. Complaint from tne Tenth Ward. To trie Editor of the - Brooklyn Eagle : Can you inform me why the Alderman of the Tenth Ward does not attead to his business t The oiook on which I live (lu Hoyt street, between Fulton avenue and Livingston street) has not been cleaned in any manner for thirteen months. The mud and filth is Irom six inches to a foot deep, and is becoming perfectly unendurable, as every resident of the block will testify. x. To the Editor of the Brooklyn Eagle; I cannot allow to pass unnoticed your most just criticiem on the action, or rather non - action, of the Board ol Health, whom I have twice notified of tho filthy condition of Wjckoff street, between Smith and Hoyt streets; tho stench in tne neighborhood is really sickening, and to - day the street out - rivals the "Wiiche'a Cauldron" in "Macbeth," for In it to mako the giucl thick They did but a goat's gall add, While we to - day two whole goats had. For fn passing to - day at 12 A. M. I observed two dead goatB amongst the fifth. Mention is rcadc ot the above part of the street as it is that which 1 notified the Health Board, (say board but Beemlngly more proper blockhead) and Street Cleaning Commissioner of eome tbreo weeks since, though in tact there is need of their attention to more of thia street, and also to Warren street from Smith to Bond. As no doubt everybody reads the Eagle, I take this method to inform all those whose duty it is to attend to the above, and for bo far tresspassing upon space in your valuable paper tiust that cause will plead excuse the liberty. Very truly youts, J. W. V. May 11, 1808. The following paragraph, which we find in onr reporter's items for to - day, will probably explain the matters of the two foregoing letters, and convince the writers that the Alderman of tho ward has done his duly in tho premises. Tenth Ward Streets. A large staff of men were put on the Tenth Ward street cleaning yesterday, in accordance with the resolution of the Common Council on Monday authorizing the Alderman of the ward to have the work done which the contractor had neglected. Aldermen, Attention! To the Editor of the Brooklyn Eagle: Can you inform us who who is to blame, and if tnere is any remedy for it f X " resided Bince May 1, 1808, in Willoughby street, and during that whole time there has not been an ash curt around through that street from Pulton street to Port Greene Park. At every house about, there is from one to five barrels of ashes and dirt. This remains out from Monday morning to Monday morning, and no cart comes to take it. Is it because the residents do not pay any taxes, or was thia street left oat of all the contracts made by our City Fathers 1 I, with many others, do not wish to empty them in the street for two reasons : first, on account of the looks of tbe street, and secondly, on account of the fine which I have no doubt the City Father will collect sure. Now I think that if our worthy Mayor's attention was called to this fact through your valuable Bbeet he would see that the contractors live up to their contract, and go through this street each week like all other Btreets. Now will you come to our rolief in this matter through your paper ? The Mayor can see this at any time by taking a few steps from his office in the Hall, and looking up our street ; bo be will feel satisfied that our complaint is just and therefore needs remedying at once. Yours truly, A Resident of Willoughiit Street heah Gold. Is Religion Free? JFo the Editor of the Brooklyn Eagle : Of the many churches that I have attended in this city, I have frequently heard allusions made to that one grand theme, "Hospitality" to strangers visiting churches, aud I have come to tho conclusion that it la all talk, and they do not practice what they preach. I visited Dr. Cuyler'a church last Sabba'h moraine to bear that respected and eloquent preacher, aud as I entered the church I was tequeetcd to take a side seat until tbe services commenced ; I sat on the side seat of the left band gallery for three quarters of an hour, while those who came in a half hour alter I did, were given seats immediately, while I was left there anxt - onBly wailing lob? shown a Beat in one ol the vacant pews. Now, Mr. Editor, ia tbla justice and hospitality to strangers ? But I suppose that the pew - holders wish to enjoy the full benefit uf what they pay for at such an enormous price. Nowittney followed Ihe example of the Hanson Place MtthodiBt church, in giving thep jws free oten, many pereona would go to church more frequently than tbey do, and not fori themselves intru'leis. Now ie relielon free ? If it is, (hey do not go according to the Sctiptures. A SxiiANaisr.. City Hall Gossip. Mr. Editor : Once or twice before I have written up tome City Hall gossip for your columns. I would have done it oftener, but for several reasons. First of all, I wonteda nom de plume, for fear I should be miBtaken for Corry O'Lanus orO'Pake. I triod one or two words before I could got a eignatnro to my taste. B. O'Gub would have been appropriate, bat was too short. N. O'M. Do Plume was also signifi cant, but was too long. Yesterday while mentally anathematizing the incessantly wet weather, the predominance of Jupiter Pluvias inspired me with a flow of ideas, and the signature ot Hyder O'Stattx occurred to me as one which, to say the least of it, is seasonable under the circumstances. Moreover, there is a Savor of moisture about it, which will save my letters from being considered dry and uninteresting. Another reason wby I have not written oftener is the inability of mere triflers and jocnlarlsts like your Corry O'Lanus, to appreciate sensible writing on solid matters. He sneers at our Aldermen aud other men of mark in and about the Hall, and thinks you give their sayings and doings too much space. In this he's just wrong. When your man of wit basldepsrted, and future Hamlets ask "Where bo now thy quips and tests" ? the massive walls of the City Halt will still Dear ud shelves laden with full and minute records of even tbe smallest official action of the City Fathers. I bold with vauanoinguum that "uotton is not King. as the Southrons Bay, nor is even Gold King: Pollt'ca alone is Kire. in this or anv free country, and he iB a iealouB monarch, suffering none to dispute or sbare lis authority." I consider, tberefore, that tho City Hall, wnere me pouticiaus congregate, ib tne great iocus ot public interest in this city. It is all very well for Corrv to nut a few lokeB in the paoer occasionally, ob a foarmanu cracks a nut or two leisurely after dinner, nt the solid staple food of tbe reader is tbe accounts ol wnat tniB, that ana tne otner local politician Bays and does, and is supposed to think of doing. bo my mifBion is to send yon word of the echoes of the City Hall corridors: to write np rumors, speculations, predictions, wblch your digntaed regular contributors wouldlthink it infra dig. to notice. I only wish to stipulate for one thing before I begin to write, and that is if I say anything lunny you must please leave itfn the body of the letter and not take it apart and put it in nnder your caption of "Amusements." On Monday evenlog, when O'Eeeffe in tbe Common Council wanted a special committee to go to Cincinnati to look at Roebling's lodge, Alderman FiBher suggested that tbe same committee should go on to Chicago and lookattheNicolson pavement. Upon which it is taid that tbe Aldercan would have been enabled to attend niB party's national convention at the city's expense, bad hie amendment been adopted. There is much talk of getting up an opposition Democratic Committee. James H. Cornwell, by the will of the Sovereign People Police Justice, and Dr. Norris, ex Coroner, seem lo be tbe most active participants in arranging. tne preliminaries. A great many more men of standing sympathize with the tenor ot the movement," than with tbe individuals who have takenjit in charge. If Hugby McLaughlin is the smart manager I take him to be, he will send oil five or six ol tbe scaliest of his own followers to join the other crowd and relieve bis own ride from discredit while they help to render the opposition ridiculous. The new Fire Department Board is to meet this morning, and yon wii), no doubt, hear of its action through your U6U81 channels . There seems no question that Commissioner Furey and the two Engineers will pull together, making Mayor Kalbfleisch and Comptroller Faron mere ornamental appendages. The passage of this bill at Albany maBt have been " nuts " to the Street Commissioner. It is calculated not only to give bim the control of the Fire Department of both Districts, and of tbe vast political influence thus obtaitable, but to intensify his enjoyment by compsli - ing bis two foes, the Mayor and Comptroller, lo sit powerless at the Board, ond . record an unavailing minority vote. That ia bow the thing was intended, and how it looks. But Kulbfleisch and Faron are both very able men ; and m siratciry, or anything but simple voting, they two are more than a match for tbe olber three. Besides, it is by no means sure that the Mayor and Chief Cnnnfnsham cannot agree in tbe main on Fire Department matters, while" Chief Smith of tbe E'JBlern District iB Btated to have been an oil acquaintance of Comptroller Faron while he was in the Navy Yard . If that Is so, it will not be surprising ir Faron's affability in official and personal intercourse may neutralize the Street Commissioner's influence in the other direction. I incline to think that after a few rough and tumble contests at first, the Street Commissioner himself will be less inclined to fight the Mayor and Comptroller than he iB now ; and tnat the general harmony of the party will be eventually promoted by tbe semiweekly gathering of these gentlemen around the same table. During all tbe severe rain storms we have bad, tho roof ol the City Hall has not leaked since its repair, on the occasion, early in the year, of the leaks which let the water in to damage the frescoed ceiling of the Governor's Room. This fact is creditablejCto Mr. Davis, not the King of the Roofers, by whom the leaks were stopped. The Water Commissioners went to work the other day and partitioned off, irom floor to ceiling, an office inside their room. Such an arrangement was sdvlaa - ble in iUelf.but as the City Hall belongs to tbe Mayor and Common Council, as trustees for the city, it wonld have shown nothing but proper respect and good taste had the Commissioner requested permission, if only as a matter of form. On tne same floor of the building Is the Conusel'a office, where documents of great vat ne to tne city are crammed into drawers without possibility of convenient order and arrangement, for want of a few shelves, pigeon holes and bookcases. But tbe ConnBel b only head of a department, aud mnv not take an example from his neighbors; probably if ne were couea Law commissioner, no would leei differently there is some magic in that word commission. Now I thinkl have delated vonr columns anite suf ficiently for once, and will conclude by subscribing uiyBsu iu uuwujg vuaracicra, Htpeb O'Statix.

Progress of the Trial Facts and Fancies Paine as an Expert Tho Defence. No one at all familiar with the history of the Third Collection District, from the palmy days of Bowen to tho nipped career of Callicott. will doubt that the triBl now pending'before JndgeB Nelson and Benedict will figure in the books as a cause celebre. Everything about it tends to make it notable. The charge is astounding; the defendants are peculiar men; tho counsel are no chickens, and tho Bench sustainB a weight not often found in such places. The dalles of a Collector of the Revenue are such as make bim part and parcel of every person in the district, if any man should be honest and above suspicion he should probably that was the reason that honest Old Abe selected Mr. Bowen of the Independent as the first Collector. Mr. Callicot received his appointment, we always supposed, through Senator Magan in return for a little favor he did that gentleman beforo he was a Senator; but It seems from the evidence of one of the Go - backers that a livery stable man of this city had more to do with tt than anybody else and that $15,000 had even more to do with it than even the L. S. man. However that may be,"Mr. Callicott cnteredjapon his dutlei somewhat under a cloud and bis friends created no little public son timent in his lavor, by circulating the report that he had laken the position in order that he might retrieve his reputation where to a certain extent, polltcal tumbling had bruised it. So far as the public knew, he did very well. Mr. Tappan a legacy from the Independent Bowen was not there to gnldo him in the paths of purity and that may account for the fact that rumors began to circulate in the vicinity of the District Attorney's office to the detriment of the Collector. Shortly after this he was removed, and then the astounding charges of fraud and corruption, which are now the subject of investigation were revealed by the press. Personally Mr. Callicott is a genla' pleasant, courteous gentlemen. His intimates and friends ore very fond of him; his relations with subordinates the best test of man or woman are friendly and thoughtful; his bUBiness habils always Eeemed to be marked with cantion and deliberation, and so far ob an outsider could judge, his management of the Revenue office was a vast improvement on. that of those who had preceded him. THE CHARGE against him is that underneath this guise of gentle courtesy he was a cunning schemer ; that he formed, or fell into one already formed a huge whisky ring, by which the Government was to be cheated and thering - Ues profited : that he availed himself of his position to further projects of the members of the ring, and to protect them against meddlesome detectives. It has not been charged, we believe, that he personally profited by the airangement at least we have not mot that charge anywhere in terms. THE AUSWEIl to all this is that he was deceived by tho people with whom ho had to deal as there is no doubt Mr. Allen was. There is oiJy one objection to this theory and that is that a man so shrewd, so well versed in human nature, and eo vigilant and cautions as he notably is, wonld not be very apt to be deceived long, fatill as that is a matter for the jury to decide, it ia very clearly none of our buBincBB at present. Very general Burprise Is manifested by the haugers on in court that Brother Jonks let the Informers off with so slight a cross - examination, and is accounted for by only two reasons. 1 . That the jury wouldn't be apt to believe anything they eaid with the halter about their necks. 2. The more they were pressed, the harder they would swear. Still the popular hankering after sensation would have been gratified if Brother Jenks had said, " Ha ha I sir, now sir, do you or do you not sir mean to tell thia honorable Court aud respectable jury, that yon did not wnte those names YOUH3ELF sir? Bpeak up loud sir, bo that this juror here sir, can hearyoul sir I" And that sort of thing which makes a witness feel uncomfortable makes the audience feel jolly, and even jurymen who are sitting on the small of their backs, assume the God - like proportions of men, and condescend to manifest an interest in the case. MR. PAINE, TltE EXPERT, was on the stand yesterday. He is a very well - known man here, and prides himself on two facta that he ia "in the counting room of A. A . Low & Brother, New Yoik," and is an undoubted export in all matters pertaining to chirography. That Mr. Fame la one ot the most expert "shngers or the quill'i on thia mundane sphere there can be no doubt and that ho knowB all abont the mysteries ol tbeartwe are glad to believe. But we are qnite snrethat Mr. Paineconld deceive others byacouutcr. feit Blgnature, and arc by no means satisfied thot he could not be deceived himscir. Judge Nelson stated yesterday that he had no faith in experts as such merely, and would not accept his evidence on that ground, although he would not, of course, be understood to rule that an educated and experienced person would not be better able to judge than one who knew nothirg of the art. Altogether it is a very nice and interesting question, and we hope to hear further from Mr. Paine about it. Since the retirement of Mr. Williams, the caae for the defence lookB a little better at all events It is not embarrassed by the presence of a counsel, who, however " smart," could not expect to stand in favor with the Court whoso very existence he has endeavored to suspend. It is expected and devoutly desired by twelve tired jurymen that tho prosecution will close to - day. If bo Brother De Witt will deliver himself iu the opening for the defence, after which Brother Jenks will unfuld by sundry and divers witnesses the conspiracy which he contends has endeavored to ruin bis client. Whether he will call McMullcn aa to the $15,000, and Who got it; Cunningham as to tho permits and who shared the profits ; Dayton as to tho storehouse and who choused the whiskey ; Morehouse as to the peculiarities of his Father's Bignaturo and how much he made as "a mero matter of form," and Hardy in relation to his private Bank account and how much be received through "other parties," wo are not informed. Bnt of oue thing wearoqulte certain, he will conduct the case for the defence quite as skillfully, as Brother Tracy has that of the prosecution, Mr. Keaseby had his opportunity in tho opening, and made good nse of it. Tbe industry and careful analysis of fact and proof evinced by him were the subject of universal comment in the court. Mr. Tracy has his opportunity all along, and he doesn't hesitate to make all he can of it. The mental and physical strain to which he is subjected is simply tremendous. Mr. De Witt's opportunity will come to - day and no one who knows bim donbts that be will do bis best, in a case more momentous than those in which ho has appeared before. Mr. Jenks has had a rumbcr of jolly chances, and will come to his final opportunity when be Enms up at the close. He will bs followed by Mr. Stoughton, who is at once a master of rhetoric and a lawyer of experience, tact, and skill. The rumors, pro and con, are about the same. Tho friends of Callicot are sanguine that they can pr ive conspiracy. Mr. Allen is unfortunately estopped from proving previons good character, by the rec jrd of tha Court, but we don't see how that caa remove the laet Irom the minds of the jury. We continue hetewith the balance of yesterday's testimony. That of TO - DAY will be found on our third page. AFTER RECEfS. Mr. E. P. Eagan again took the stand.

His Honor I am not inclined to go into tbe question of handwriting by experts, but it is competent to call a witness welt acquainted with writing if a party, and it goes for what It is worth. I would not hear an expert on tho point; it is for tho jury to determine what weight belongs to it. By Mr. Jenks - l am Depnty Collector under E. T.

EVIDENCE OF J. E. PAINE. JOBepb E. Paine sworn I reside at 142 Oxford street; I am with A. A. Lowe & Co., in Neiv York ; I have been thero nearly 12 years ; I have made the subject of handwriting a study ; I knew Richard C. Enright; I am acquainted with his handwriting; I have had occasion to examine tbe distillers bonds taken in the 3d Collector's District filled by him : I have examined 15 or 20 ; I have spent nearly five nionths in the study of theae bonds and others placed in my hand ; I have carefully stnditd 1 lie writine - of Eoriebt as contained in t'use boi.ds; I am sufficiently familiar with it to recognize Iiond of Butler handed witness with signatures of Curtis and Corwin as eureties. Mr. DeWitt objected because he understood his Honor to rule that he would not admit tho evidence of experts. Hie Honor said he thought it waa competent. To Mr. DeWitt I have seen Mr. Eoriiiht write in this court room ; I was 1 or 5 feotoff; I did not Bee his writing aftcrwatd. To the Court I became acquainted with Enright's handwriting by studying the bonds and hia signature aa Notary Public; I have had since the end of August to study it. To Mr. De Witt I never saw any of his handwriting except in these bonds. Judge Nelson The only question with me is whether ho has had an opportunity of seeing his handwriting, nis Honor stated the law in the case of correspondence. The question is whether Mr. Patne has bad au opportunity, from the signature of Enright as Notary Public to Beveral bonds, whether ho has thus become a competent witness to testify to his handwriting as wi ll aa his Bignalnre. I de not admit bim as an experl; he may have sufficient acquaintance to give testimony; be is fairly competent, and nothing more. By Mr. Do Witt Do you know Enright's handwriting from previous acquaintance, or as an export t A ab an expert. ( Do ycu think a person could come to your knowledge except as an.cxpert? A I think not. Judge Nelson introduced an expert to he possessed of an art which i nahled bim to determine whether given writing is the handwriting of a person to whom the persons siunatnre is known. Ho derives his knowledge from his art altogether. If the witness baa had au opportunity to become Tamiliar with handwriting from witnessing and examining many specimens of hia handwriting, such, for instance aa the correspondence of a noud man, he becomes familiar with the handwriting in the same manner as one becomes fdroiliar from having teen him wrrc. ft seems tbla witness lias bod an opportunity of becoming acqnalnt - ed wiih the handwriting of Enright fiom the signatures as Notary Public. I do not put much weigit on tbe art but I think this witness is competent to testify. Witnesses ate sometimes mistaken aud I have seen such case?, there mistakes don't ehjw a dishonest witness but only the excellence of the imitation which can deceive the mo&t expert mau. Therefore I do not put much faith in th2 act as the imitation can he eqnal to the original. Mr. Dc Witt reminded hia Honor that I bin witness knew nothine of the bandwritintr of Enriuht save from the bonds which were placed in his handa. Evidence admitted. The BitnatnreB of Carter aud Corwin on Butler' j bond are in Enright's handwriting, Rond of Patrick Ctosson given wilners. The tiguattiro of Alonzo Metlv is written by Enright. Bord of Thomas C. Farrell given witness. The tome or Gcotse Rot - era is written by Enright. Bond of John L. W. Ilcpke given witness. The eignaiurce of William Brr.wn and Jutnes Jackson as sureties are written by Enright. Bond of Thomas Rogers given witness. The ailnatures of LeCouut and Lilloa aa surctiCB are written by R. C. Enright. Bend of Multhew Smith eiven witness. The Blgnature of Morris Lawrence aa surety ia written by It. C. Enright. Bor - d of James McBride given witnesa. Toe signatures of Glllcn snd Fox ag sureties aro written by H. C. Enright. Cross examined by Mr. Dewitt The specimen of Enright's bandwritiDg wbicb I have senn is in these bondB; I judge Ihese signatures to be Eurisht's from the characteristics of the writing of the filling in of the bond and his eignatnre ; tho signatures are simulated o diEpuieed ; before I compared the signatures witb the handwriting there were some things so plain that I was f alisfled they were in Enright's handwriting; I can take a bond and tell you what I consider to be charade) istics of handwriting ; (witness hero explained his process of confirmation, giving some particulars of similarity.) By Mr. Jenfesj don't think onr art is infallible; the signatures are written by Enright in tne best of my judgment; I think very often a man can be mistaken about his own signature; I should not think it extraordinary that a man should take some of tncBC signafures for genuine; I got those forma from the District Attorney; when I cot tbem I had a general impression that I should find some signatures forced; I can't deny that thiB was on my mind when I went into on examination of the bond?. The court then adjourned till noon to day. FlfUi ward Democratic Club Tbe Democracy on Impeachment, and Ibe conduct of tne Seven.

Resolved, That the deepest gratitude of all patriotic and good citizen b, who rejoice in our Republican Term of Government and cesire its perpetuation, is pre eminently due to Senators Fessenden, Fowler, Grimes, Henderson, Ross, Trumbull and Van Winkle, who robly rising above party prejudices, and dlsre - gai ding the disreputable pressure ueea to Inflaenco their Vcidicte have giorlou'y vindicated their oaths In justice and Integrity, and preserved untarnished their sacred honors. HeEOlved, That we render to our Democratic Senators a full meed of praise for their straightforward worthiness and upright integrity during the trying honrs devoted to this uncalled for trial.
