Justice Guck to - day restored a lad 10 years of age, named William Reed, to his parents who are re sidents of Hoboken, - N. 3. The young scamp was picked up last night by Officer Corby, on Broadway and entire ly gained tho officer's sympathy with a story about his having been abducted by two men. When taken to the Stagg street Station the boy related - the abduction yarn in detail. Becoming confused on being cross questioned William ultimately owned that he had been lying, not, however, until threatened with imprisonment and sovoro punishment. On that the lad weakened and made a clean breast of it by telling where his father, and two uncles living in this city, reaidod. One of the latter, a Mr. Piatt, when sent after responded in person and promptly recognized his truant relative. This morning word waa sent tho father, who livos at No. 400 Washington Btreet, in Hoboken, who in good timo put in an appearance at Justice Quck'B Court Mr. Reed stated that this was the third occasion his son had left home "on a spee," as the boy himself terms it. Young Reed has been away from his people this time since Christmas, and at intervals had visited among relatives. The only reason the boy assigns for his strange conduct is that ho takes tho notion and cannot resist it. Justice Guck suggested that punishment might cure the youth, but it seems tho boy's father is of a different belief and refrains from using the rod. The boy, by permission of the magistrate, accompanied his father home. HARD TIMES. Congregations in Financial Difficulties. The Auction Sale of the Tompkins Avenue M. E. Church that was to Have Taken Place this Morning Foreclosure of a Mortgage for $8,000 on the Bedford Congregational Church. This morning it was expected that the Tompkins avenue IT. E. Church building would have been sold at auction to satisfy a mortgage for about $13,000. held by the WilliamBbnrah Savings Bank. The church is situated on the corner of Tompkins and Wil - longhby avenues, and is a handsome and commodious frame building. It waa built many years ago, when labor and material were much hlghor than they are at present, and coat, together with the lots, between thirty and forty thousand dollars. If sold at the present time it wonld not probably realize more than tho face of tho mortgage. The sale was advertised to toko place this morning, but owing to fome irregularities in the proceedings, it had to bo poBtponed, and it will, therefore, not come off for about four or Ave weeks. Another ohurch that is In difficulty is the Bedford Congregational, of which the Rev. Hugh Smith' Carpenter is the pastor. A mortgage for $8,000 on the church is held by the Long Island Sayings Bank, and it was foreclosed several months ago. A few daya 'since Mr. M. C. Ogden, the bank receiver, notified the trustees of the church that the mortgage must be paid or he would be compelled to sell the property. Then trouble ensued relative to the payment of tho costs of the foreclosure proceedings and also the interest on the mortgage. The Church Trustees wiehod to be relieved from both those items, and the receiver notified them that if one should be cancelled then the other must be paid, but even that compromise measure did not meet with ap proval. Last night tho. Church Trustees woretohavo met for the purpose of taking definite action In tho matter, as they had been notified that unless that shoiUd bo done the property would this morning be advertised for. Bale. No action, however, co'Uld be taken in consequence of the absence of several of the trustees, and another and special meeting will be hold at au early day during the ensuing week, when tho church officers will determine whether it will be better to pay eff the mortgage or allow the bank receiver to sell the ohurch at auction for the benefit of tho bank depositors. On learning this morning that the truBteos had failed to take action, in consequence of the waut of a quorum at their meeting last evening, the bank receiver consulted with Hon. J. C. Ferry, of counsel for the bank, and it was decided to wait the result of tho meeting next week before advortisimj tho property for salo. COURT NEWS. Six Cent'; of Vindication Not Despised. A motion for a new trial was. made this morning in the suit of Wallaco P. Groom against Peter Cooper. Mr. Groom sued Mr. Cooper for $50,000 for alleged libel, and on the first trial the jury disagreed. On the second trial the jury, after being ocoupied for eight days, found a verdict for the dofeudaut. A full report was printed in tho Eaolk during the trial. The ground on which a new trial was asked was that the justification was not so broad an the charge. Judge Pratt said that even supposing ho had directed a verdict on a purely technical ground, the jury would not have given more thau six cents. Counsel for Mr. Groom said that the verdict for six cents would have been a vindication of the plaintiff. Decision, was resorvod.. For plaintiff, Mr. John P. Adams and Hon. W. W. Goodrich ; for defendant, Mr. W. H. Taggard and Mr. John E. Fansons. Tho Trinkliaus Case. The case of Mary Trinkhaus was up this morning in the City Court Special Term, beforo Judgo Neilson, on a motion to vacate an order of arrest. The husband was directed to pay counsel fee and alimony which he failed to do, and waa locked up in the Raymond street Jail in Consequence. The action was brought for limited divorco. Trinkhaua kept a lager beer saloon in the EaBtornDistrict. The Court took the papers. THE SESSIONS. The Low Case Ends in a Disagreement. The Hogan Case Porter to"be Tried on monday. In the case of Alfred D. Low, tried yesterday in the Sessions upon a charge of exposure, the jury failed to agree and stood nine for acquittal and three for conviction. A DARK TRIAL. After the Low Case was concluded, in the Sessions, yesterday the case of John Hogau was called. Hogan was tried last Wednesday in tho Sessions upon an indictment for burglary in the third degree. Hogan was found in the house No. 80 Orauge street, on the 11th of January, and could not give a satisfactory account of himself. He claimed that ho had gono into tho buildiug which is made up of French fiatH, to see a woman who lived there, and he gave the name of a woman who had never lived there. The jury failed to agree on the trial, standing eleven for conviction and one for acquittal. It was late when tho trial began yesterday, and darkness soon descended upon the court room, and tho gas was lighted. The court honso is supplied with gas manu - ufactured from naphtha in tho basement of the building. After the gas had been lighted for awhile, it began to flicker and finally went oat, leaving the court room in perfect darkness. A juror was drawn, and tho trial was stopped, and goes over until next term. It afterward transpired that the juror had heard tho evidence on ilus previous trial, and the majority had made up their minds the accused was guilty. THE PORTER CASE. On Monday next tho trial of tho Patchen avenue burglar case comes up, and Billy Porter will bo again brought before a jury. It will be remembered that the case was tried last December, and the jury failed to agree. Four men Porter, irviuo, anang urapBr, auu a man named Wilbur were arrested. Porter demanded a separate trial, and after a week spent in the hearing, the jury could not agree. On the night of the 10th of August last, the flour store of Ibert Bros., on Graham avenue, was robbed of about $650. For several days De - tectivo Murphy, of the Twelfth Precinct, had been watching the house in Patchen avenuo, near Broadway, and had seen three men leavo it about 10 o'clock on Saturday evening. He watched all night and saw them return ahnnt half - nast four. Four men entered the houee. Half an hour after, two men left and wero followed by Murpny,;and one of them arrested. The other ran away. Murphy sent word to have the; houBe surrounded, and a squad of police made the raid, surprising tho inmates in bed. "Shang" Draper was captured in an outhouBe under some straw, and Porter and Irvine wero caught in the house in their night dresses. In the house were found somo of the proceeds of the burglary. Porter's defense 1b that he was not concerned in the robbery, but that a man named Irwin waB mistaBen lor Mm and that Irwin left after the detective started on the chase of the other two. A special panel has been summoned for Monday. An important witness, the Bervant girl Mary Hogan, who testified on the former trial, is missing and cauno be found. FATALLY INJURED. A Young Man Crushed by a Truck at tho Fulton Ferry Gate This morning - . Among the passengers on board a Fulton Ferry boa? at 7:3(5 o'e??). $4 morning was S. F, Ray, aged 18 years, of 427 KoBctusko street. He was slow In getting off the boat after it had been fastened at the Vew York Blip. When he did get off he walked leisurely toward tho gate. A large truck, loadod with coffee, belonging to W. J. Force, of No. 110 Front street, N. Y., came toward tha gate al a rol at the same time. The boy was considerably in advance, but when.at the side of the gate he suddenly stopped short, It was too late for the driver to check his team. The passageway is narrow, IWYing probably not more than eighteen IncheB or two feet to Bpare after admitting a truck. So to avoid the boy was difficult. As a consequence he was caught by the rear wheel and was fatally CRUSHED AGAINST THE GATE POST. Ray was removed to the ferry house In an uneonBCloua condition, and tho ambulance was telegraphed for. When the surgeon arrived he gave it as his opinion that Ray would not survive his injuries, which were both external and internal. They were mainly on the left side and hip where the wheel caught him. He waa removed to the Chambers street Hospital. His parents were notified, and their distress knew no bounds when thoy saw their boy at tho institution later in the forenoon. Ray la a lithographer, employed by his uncle, whose business is located at 18 Dey street. The boy stated when he recovered consciousness that ho has been subjected to fits, and that ho was stricken with Beveral fainting Bpells on hiB way to the ferry. He said that he felt himself growing weak when the accident occurred. That accounts for his standing and loaning against the gate poBt for support. He said that he did not blame the driver for the accident. MISS CHRISTIANSEN'S SCHOOL. The close of the dancing quarter at Miss Christiansen's school, at No. 300 Stato Btreet, was observed laEt evening by a pleasant sociable. The spacious parlors of the lady's residence, wore filled with a fashionable assemblage, consisting chiefly of parents and pupils. There was dancing betweon tight and ton o'clock, and while tho young people participated in tho axerclxes, those further advanced m years spent tho time in agreeable conversation. Between tho dances, recitations in German and English wore given by some of tho pupils. It was o'.oveu o'clock bofore the assemblage dispersed, and on leaving, the guosts thanked Miss Christiansen for their evening's amusement. Two weeks lionce, Hiss Christiansen's pupils will give an entortainmeut in St. Peter's chapel, in aid of .tho poor of this city. . . MUNICIPAL. Important Legislation Proposed by Collector Tanner. Consolidating the Three Tax Beceiving Departments What the Collector and the Politicians Have (o say on the Sub jeet Miscellaneous Matters at the Hall It was reported about tho City Hall to - day, that the movement looking to the consolidation of the three tax receiving departments of the oity (Collector, Registrar of Arrears and KegiBtrar of Water Rates) waa assuming tangible shape, and that a bill would be sent to Albany next week providing for Buch conisoii - dation. It is well known that Collector Tanner favors tho measure. He was in favor of a siniikfr bill last vear. which was doleatoa inrougn tne mnuence oi Republican and Indepindont politicians of this city, who aro masquerading in tho garb of reform. Mr. Tanner says that he can run the three departments as one, with a cost of not more than $10,000 in addition to that of his own office, and thereby savo thousands of dollars to the city. The consolidation of the three departments would not only be in the interest of econ omy, but it would be a great convenience to our tax - paying oitizens, many of whom bave to trot from one office to the ether in order to fully transact their business. The proposition meets with THE SAME OPPOSITION from the "reformers" of the Republican and Flaherty parties that it encountered last year. Rufus L. Scott, a leading member of the Indepindont gang, is Registrar of Arrears, and Charloa A. McLaughlin, another product of Schroederism and a blooming Indepindont as well, is Registrar of Arrears. They want to keep their fat places. Tho Republicans are anxious to keep In with the Flaherty party, so as to secure their assistance at the next election, and heuco will oppose any legislation seeking to displace any of the gang. Mr. Tanner is it Republican, but he sees that the city can save thousands oi aoiiara aiig can alford incre&seu lacinties to tne lax - paying portion of tho community by the change proposed, and ho therefore feels it incumbent upon him to invoke tho aid of the Legislature. Ho is fully aware of of the opposition that he will have to encounter, and of threats which have been made to retalliate should he press his measure. THESE THREATS emanate from leading Republicans who declare that if he persists in urging the paesago of the bill, they will have a bill introduced consolidating the three departments, and making them bureaus of the Department of Finance. Tho Kings County Club, or the most of the leaders in it, are opposed to Tanner's proposition, and have bad it informally under discussion at recent meetings. Mr. Tanner does not seem to be alarmed at the threats, and knowing that he is right, is determined to go ahead. It. is said that the bill has been prepared and will be introddced by Assemblyman Tallmodge. Mr. Tanner will appear before the Committee to which it will be referred, and urge its passage. DEPARTMENT OF CITY WOBKS. The annual report of the Department of City Works will shortly ba submitted to the Common Council. It will consiBt of statements of the various heads of bureaus, together with a report made by tha Commissioners themselves. An effort is being made by Flaherty and Bennett to make a good show for their administration of the affairs of the Department. Pur veyor Milne, or Registrar McLaughlin proposes to show an increase in the receipts for watar over the previous years, and altogether there will be a rose colored view of the management of the Department under thoso choice buds of " reform," Flaherty and Bennett. RETRENCHMENT IN THE TAX OFFICE. Collector Tanner has been compelled to reduce the force and the salaries of his office in order to keep within the appropriation of' the present year. He haB reduced tho salaries of the Deputy Colleotor from $3,000 to $2,400; cashier, from $3,500 to $3,000; bookkeeper, from $1,500 to $1,200, and clerks, who have been receiving $1,200 to $1,000. Ho has not reduced any clerks who have been receiving $1,000, on the principle that if a clerk is not worth $1,000 he is not worth - having in the office. He has, however, discharged the following olarks : E. J. McGee, $1,200 ; Robert Ireland, $1,200, and David Harned, W. R. Heenan, W. W. Brodie, J. N. Creamer and W. S. Keegan, $1,000 each. Thore will probably be further discharges at tho end of the month. Collector Tanner's action is somewhat different from . that of Registrar of Arrears Scott in roframing his payroll. Tanner cuts down big salaries, such as thoso of deputy, bookkeeper and cashier. Scott keeps his deputy and cashior on the old high salaries and cuts down his poor clerks from $1,000 to $000. DOCKMASTEItS REMOVED. A. T. Doyle and Patrick Kelly, DockmaBtors at the Wallabout and for the Eastern District, respectively, have been removed by Controller Steinmetz. No appointments have been made in their places. The assistant at the Wallabout will tako charge there temporarily, while Mr. De Vigne, of the Controller's offlco, who has supervision over theBe dock matters generally, will tako charge in the Eastern District. The Controller is preparing a Btatemont as to possible means of increasing the city revenues, including those from the docks, in whioh, it is said, he will comment upon the way In which tho dismissed DockmaBtors have been performing their duties. CUTTING DOWN THE PAY. Superintendent of Sewers M. J. Dady has reduced the rates of pay of the men under him as follows : Masons from $3 to $2.50 a day ; sewer examiners from $2.50 to $2.25; basin examiners from $2.50 to $2.Ho; lore - mon from $3 to $2.50 ; watchmen from $2 to $1:75; labor - era from $1.75 to $1.50. COUNTY MATTERS. Will the Supervisors bo Indicted ? Indications that the Transfer of the Unexpended Balances will be Brought to the Attention of the Grand Jury. What has Been Developed in the Iu - , . t - .i . - natlc Asylum Scandal Case Contracts Awarded for Supplies for the Jail. Military matters. Little else than the possibility of an indictment of those of the Supervisors who voted for the transfer of the unexpended balances was talked of in and around the Court House, this morning. That the Board waa guilty of a clear violation of the law in the transfer, was admitted on all sides, the moral justice of tho claim of the employes being regarded as the only redeeming feature of the business. There is no doubt that side iBsues somewhat clouded the judgment of the Board at the time that the resolutions were being considered. Supervisor Nathan's stubborn declination to exercise his privilege of voting and the exciting developments incidental to it, shadowed tho point at Issue, and for a time the struggle became simply an effort upon one side to vindicate the ruling of the Chair, and upon the other, an attempt to overrule him. In the thick of the contention the author of the resolutions, Supervisor Byrno, himself indicated a very clear way out of the dilemma, having expressed his willingnesB to accept an amendment providing for the transfer, subject to the order of the court. No attention was paid, howeveT, to this significant intimation, and the Board clung to the resolutions in their most questionable shape. An Eagle reporter callod upon District Attorney Catlin, this morning, and asked Mm whether he had been spoken to on the subject of an indictment, or whether ho himBelf had any definite intentions of his own about it. He smilingly retorted that there waa no telling what tho next Grand Jury might have to consider, and further than that declined to go. The name of State Commissioner Ropes was very prominently mentioned in connection with the matter, but ho would not commit .himself further than to forcibly ex - preBB the opinion that it was about time to do something which would put a stop to such flagrantly illegal legislation. Tho Supervisors who voted for the transfer, how - over, are far from expressing any regret at what thoy have done, and almost unanimously declare their entire willingness to go to jail, if necessary, for what they have done in behalf of the county employes so long kept out of their earnings. THE LUNATIC ASTLTJM SOANDAIi. The attempt of the Charities Commissioners to keep strictly secret the result of their investigation into the charges against Dr. J. A. M. Kone, so for aB it haB proceeded, has proved to be a failure, all of the principal features of the testimony having been submitted to the writer. Miss Lawrence, who was first placed upon the stand, bo completely corroborated her account of the alleged attempt to take liberties with her, as published in the Eagle, as to render unnecessary a repetition of hor statement. One or two conflicting points in hor testimony, however, very much lessen its valuo. She was explicitly asked several times whether she left Hart's Island of her own free will, and having in eacjj case y&Zuuea m the affirmative waa surprlBea with, the production of a document completely impeach ing her assertions. It was a certified copy of the records of her discharge by the Commissioners of Charities and Correction of New York, and it set forth that she was dismissed for "smoking and drinking whisky." She waa sent away upon the recommendation of Warden Dunnhy. Several points as to her behavior after the alleged attempt were brought out to show that Bhe did not regard it in a very serious light, one being to the effect that JJtf - SJ?S& conversation with a male official, which wound up with an invitation to take a walk that evening. Dr. Eeno, who was next examined, emphatically and absolutely denied that ho had been guilty of any misconduct whatever, and said that immediately aftej ascertaining that Miss Lawrence had charged him with the off enBO he demanded and was accorded an investigation. The result was his complete vindication and the discharge of Miss Lawrence. Dr. Shaw, the Superintendent of the Asylum, testified that as soon as thwaffair came to his knowledge he called the parties before him and notified the Commissioners. The result of his investigation completely satisfied him of Dr. Kene's innocence and Miss Lawrence's manifest unfitness for the position of nurse, and he accordingly dismissed the charge and informed the girl that her services would be no longer wanted. The official who is said tohave invited Miss Lawrence to " take a walk" on the evening in question is to be examined on Monday. SUPPLIES FOB THE JAIL. This morning the Jail Committee awarded contracts for furnishing supplies to the Jail as follows : M. J. Kearney, shoes, $193.30; Louis Kesael, miscellaneous, $55.27; Quinn Brothers, straw, per owt., 48tfo.;. Fitter fcLins, tinware, etc., $184.00; George Wilson, carpets and furniture, $135.00; George Kelly, dry goods, $558.38; Each of the above named contractors were the loweBt bidders In their respective classes. MILITARY MATTERS. At a meeting of the Military Committee of the Board of Supervisors this morning, sub committees were appointed to take charge of tho repairs now in progress at tho different armories. The feasibility of disposing of tho Thirteenth Regiment armory if a fair price sould be obtained for it from the Brooklyn, Flatbuah and Coney Island Railroad, was informally dlBCiissod. It was generally conceded that the amount it would cost to place it in a safe and unobjectionable coudition would bo so large aB to render its sale upon anything like reasonable terms, advisable A largo number of gas bills wore approved of.

A Little Colored Boy Wtao Decamps With 8100 for tho Erie Canal. Edward M. Weeks, a little colored boy, about 13 years of age, haa Just reaohed home after an absence of over a month in New Haven and New Jor - sey. On the third of January last he left his grandfather's residence, No. 1,618 Atlantic avenuo, with $100 in Ms pocket. Thia money he stole from his grandmother, who kept It under a bed pillow. She told him once that he was getting to be a bad boy, and if he did not reform she would have him sot to some Institution. Eddy did not tako advice. The first opportunity he got he ran away from home, taking another lad with him. The urchin told Justice Sender this morning that he got a situation on a canal boat on the Erio Canal. The work proved too severe, ao he left and pursued his travels until his money was exhausted. He bought one pair of pants, and spent the money remaining in cigars, candios, theatres and car travel. At a late hour last night ho came home without a cent. He got into tho house by a laddor, which brought him to the socond story. Then ho jumped from the window on to tho floor. Mr. WilBon, the grandfather, heard the noise Of his feet, and, suspecting that it was a burglar, he ran outside, and pulling the ladder away, sent for a policeman. Officer Duryoa reached the place out of breath, and, ascending the ladder, was ready with his club to fell tho burglar If he made an attempt to eBcapo. After looking around for some time the officer saw an animated object under the bed. Ho put his hand on it, and he was Bure there was life there, for the thing got away from him. Getting down on his knees Duryea crawled under tho bod, and pulled little Eddy out by the back of the pants. He squealed, and waa taken to the station houso with little difficulty. Mr. WilBon made a complaint of burglary BgainBt Eddy, who was commit" ted to jail for examination next Saturday. AT ALBANY. Colonel Stegman Out of Danger. Partisan Bills Being Rushed Through the Assembly The Bills Designed to Take from the Democratic Sheriff the Revenues Enjoyed by his Republican Pre deccssors. Special to the Eagle. Albanv, February 1. Colonel Stegman's frien ds can allay their fear for his physicians announce to - day that his recovery iB not doubtful. Pressing - Local Parties and measures. Special correspondence of the Eagle. Albant, January SI. Senator Jacobs presided as Acting Lieu tenant Governor during the absence of Governor Dorsheimer from the State, and with grace and dignity. His colleague.Senator Pierce, took a deep and abiding interest in the proceedings and insisted upon the presid ing officer explaining each motion as it waa made. Tha business progressed rapidly and the Senate adjourned after a two hours' session, during which the bill appro priating $340,000 to pay liabilities incurred by the Capitol Commissioners last year was considered in the Com mittee of the Whole, and passed subsequently. In the Assembly Mr. Trowbridge introduced the "Milk bill," which created Buch a turmoil last yehr. It was referred to tho Railroad Committee. It is as follows : An Act reirulatinff the rate of compensation to be paid to railroad companies for the transportation of milk. Seotion 1. All railroad corporations created by the laws of this State, or operating within this State, carrying or transporting milk, on the purpose of being delivered in tha cities of New York and Brooklyn shall receive, receipt for and deliver said milk in the same manner aB they recelvo, receipt for and deliver other freight, and shall not charge for transporting such milk more than the Bum of three cents per gallon from the place of shipment to the place of delivery, which payment shall include the return of the empty cans. TJNSEENLY HASTE. There is something unseenly in tho haste with which certain measures are being pressed forward and roport - od. Tho bill introduced by Mr. Trowbridge yeRterday, concerning which I wrote you, entitled "An Act to facilitate the trial of cortain casos," being an act to authorize the Attornoy General to compel the Boards of Elections and Police and Exciso to count the ballots cast for candidates for an office, tho title of which is con tested, was reported favorably this morning. There has been no hoaring upou this bill ; no argumonts allowed. This is spocimcn of the arrogance of the majority, and t ia evidently purposed to put the bill through under whip and sjiur. Mr. Ogden's bill to reduce the income of the Sheriff's office by allowing lawyers to act as reforees in foreclosure suits, was also reported favorably this morning. No hearing has been permitted on this bill either. Such unseenly haste and proBBUre, Bhould, if it does not, in vite Executive veto. This sort of hasty legislation should be looked into carefully, and the haste with hich it is preased justifies the belief that there are good arguments to ba offered against the bills arguments which the framers of the measurea are afraid to encounter. Mr. Stephenson's bill to separate the State and Coun ty tickets was reported for the consideration of tho House, which means that tho committee will make no rec ommendation upon the measuro. Ab a rule the country members ore opposed to this measure and will probably defeat it. The Republican mombera from Sings have entered upon a raid upon all Democratic officials. An instanco is shown In the following resolution, introduced by Mr. Trowbridgo : Wlutreaji. Chanter 402 of the Laws of 3 878. passed June 8, is an act authorizing the County Clerk of Kings County to employ a clerk to arrange, assort and repair certain papera filed in his office, fixing the pay of said clerk per diem, and In addition thereto a lea for eacn paper copiea Dy eoia ciern ; auu Whereas, It now appears that said clerk authorized by said act for a temporary purpose, and paid both by salary and fee, is o become a permanent and established expense upim the County of Kings, therefore be it Mcsolvcd, That the County Clerk of Kiugs County be required to furniBh to this Assembly within the next twenty days such reasons, if any, exist as shall establish tho necessity for a longor continuanco of the provisions of said act. Tho act reforrod to paused at the last session without opposition in either House, but there is not a hole that the Republican memberB can see that they will not put their fingers into. On Wednosday afternoon Mr. Clancy's two ferry bills and Mr. Sheridan's bill to reduce the rate of ferriage to one cent on the ferries of the Union Ferry Company will be accorded a hearing before the Committee on Commerce and Navigation. Mr. Stegman is confined to his room, being seriously threatened with pneumonia. This disease is quite prevalent here thia Winter. '.RUNNING FOB LIBERTY. A Prisoner Makes a Ilush on Fulton Street An Attempt to Escape From Justice Ferry's Court Room Frustrated. A few days ago Robert Malloy and Robert Clifford, two New York thieves, were arrested by Detective Kelly and Officer Smith, of the Ninth Precinct, directly after the perpetration of a robbery in Putnam avenue. They endeavored to make their escape in a wagon, but wero pursued and captured by the officers, after an exciting chase. The stolon property was found in their possession, and when they were arraigned before JuBtico Semlsr this afternoon they had no defense to offer, and were fully committed to await tho action of the Grand Jury. Shortly after one o'clock Detectivo Kelly and Officer Smith started with their prisoners for the jail, taking a Fulton street car, on which they rode to the corner of Fulton and Raymond streets. Officer Smith got off tho car first, and immediately placed tho nippers on the wrists of Clifford, who was in his cuBtody. Detective Kelly followed close behind with Malloy, but before he could place the nippers on him, Malloy made a sudden spring, and in an instant was dashing along Fulton street, hotly pursued by Kelly, who threw off his ultster, bo as not be embarrassed in the chase. Malloy after reaching the corner of Fulton and Navy streets, ran along the latter to Fiat - bush avonue, through Flatbush avenuo to Livingston Btreet, when he doubled up and scaled a fence, protected with iron pickets, thus making his way Into a coal yard, in the rear of tho Brooklyn Tabernacle. Kelly and a big crowd, who were attracted by the hue and cry after the prisoner, were closo on hiB trackB, and the former in spite of the formidable obBtacle which it presented, scaled the fence and cornered tho fugitive In the coal yard. Detective David Corwin who was on patrol duty in the neighborhood, joined in tho pursuit, and rendered valuable aid to hhj follow offleer by cutting off the fliglit 61 the fugitive through FlatbuBh, avenuo. and Detetive Kellly had hi; bands overs'. J cn J by 3??. Pii'Setfl In pho jfencl, but he would would have suffered twice that amount of physical punishment sooner than let his prisoner escape. Malloy was greatly exhausted by the struggle and Jquietly surrendered when run to the ground. He was brought to the jail, followed by a crowd of two or three hundred people who had witnessed his attempt ta escape. The Attempt of a Prisoner to Escape From a court Koom. John Anderson, a runner for a sailors' boarding house in Imlay street, was this morning arraigned beforo Justice Forry, charged with having boarded a vessel, lying in the Atlantic Dock Basin, and carried off some baggage belonging ig toe saUore without their consent. The charge was fuSy suBtaJued and Justice Ferry sentenced the prisoner to twenty - nve aoj.5' Imprisonment in the County Jail. He was then placed In the pen, a large room on the right side of the court, the entrance to which is by a door some twenty or thirty feet from the benoh. As Boon as Anderson entered tho pen he began to pull up tha boards on the floor, with the intention of making his escape through tho cellar undor the court room. There were five other persons in the pen at the time, but none of them raised any opposition to Anderson's attempt to escape and had he been successful they would probably have followed his example. Having torn out a sufficiently large hole In the floor to pass through, he dropped down, but in falling on the floor below made bo much noise that Court Officer Patrick Ryan heard him and immediately rushed into the pen and seeing the hole attempted to follow in that direction. He was too stoutly built, however, to accomplish this feat and got jammed In tho hole, much to the amusement of the prisoners. Officers Cullen and Farrell, hearing Ryan's cries for assistance, ran into the pen and extricatod him from his unpleasant position. Search was promptly instituted for the fugitive and he was found crouched under a pilo of old papers In the cellar. He was immediately rearraigned bofore JuBtice Ferry and a charge of malicious mischief having been preforred against Mm he waB sentenced to twenty - five days' additional imprisonment, POLICV DEALER CAUGHT. Abont noon to - day Detectives Shorl aud Holland, with Officors Baker and Roardon, paid an unexpected visit to the policy shop at No. 51 Grand Btreet. On tho premises they found the reputed manager, one Thomas Nichols, and three assumed customers. Two of tho trio protested they had simply called in to get money, and the other, an old woman over sixty yeard of age, Btatcd that she dropped in to inquire where sho inljht find her grandson. Nichols and tho others were tal:on before Justice Guck and admitted to hill for tholr ar.pearanco bof oro Justice F.Uiott on Monday next.

Unimportant Session of the Potter CommitteeThe House Debating the Southern War Claims. Washington, D. C, February 1. The following letter has been received here : Livebpooi., January 1, 1879, My Deab 8m I have observed in the papers of the United States, various reports of the intended removal of Marshal Jackson Wharton from his office. I know nothing of the details of the late election in Louisiana, but I am quito unwilling to accept the statements of thoso who aro endeavoring to secure Marshal Wharton's removal (as reported to me) for want of fidelity to tho party I know the man; he stood alongside of me in the campaign of 1870, on the stump, at great peril to himself, and during the Winter of 1876 - 77 he was steadfast, and no amount of testimony from such as I understand ask his removal will convince me that ho cannot be relied upon. Your Marshal and District Attorney for the district of Louisiana, in mv iudmnnnt are catinfactorv to tho best Republican element of our State and are discharging their duty faithfully. They were firm friends of mine aud I should much regret if they did not have the confidence of tho administration and merit that confidence as thoy have the confidnirfiA of fhn Rnnublican m&AHRH of Louisiana by a faithful discharge of duty. I earnestly hope that you will not feel called upon to recommend tho President to make a change in the Marshal's office of Louisiana during the term of the inoumbent. a. i. I'ACKAHD. To Charles Devem, Attorney General, THE POTTER COMMITTEE. The Potter Investigating Committee mot thia morn ing at twelve o'clock. Mr. Morrison (in tho absence of Mr. Potter, who loft on Friday evening for New York), taking the chair. Isaac R, Hill was called and testified that ho was ona of the deputysergeant at arms who went to New Or leans with the sub - committee. Ho recollected Dula being examined, and was positive that both St. Martin and Gibson wero present inside the railing while that witness was giving his testimony. He never saw Mad - dox or Carter there. It waa hla duty to attend the entranco inside the - railing in the committee room, and this was pretty much all tho heavy work he waa called upon to do. WitneBB talked about Dulas' testimony to St. Martin's, but could not recollect any part of tho conversation. He knew St. Martin to be a good Democrat; had no knowledge that any of the witnesses were being influenced by offers of money, Mr. Hill's evidence being completed, Mr. Hlscock moved that the committee adjourn to Monday. Mr. Stengor observed that Mr. Potter might not return in time on Monday morning, and suggested that the adjournment be taken until Tuesday. To thia Mr. Hiscock agreed, and the committee then arose after a sitting of half an hour. CONOBESSIONAi. Mr. McCreery, from the Joint Committee appointed at the last session of Congress to inquire into the expediency of transf erring the Indian from the Interior to the War Department, BubmiMcd a report to tho Senate, signed by four members of the committee, in favor of the transfer. Ordered to be printed. The House has been fairly launched on the long impending debate on Southern war claims. The discussion haa been opened by Chalmers, of Mississippi. He suggested that the tendency to suspect others (as exhibited in the speech of Bragg, of Wisconsin,) indicated generally a tendency to corruption in oneself. He hoped that the South would be solid for tho Democratic party, but for that portion of It which had the courage and manliness to treat the people of the South as equals, not as inferiors, in the Union.

He told the witness that ho would let him go on his own recognizance, but only on one condition and that was that he would not vote. "I would like to vote, Mr. Davenport," said I. "We already told you that you cannot vote. If you do you will bo rearrested' Mr. wingate Then you did not vote 7 A. No, Blr. Mr. John Wright, a soldier who served four years and six months was also arrested at tho polls and taken down to tne foBt omce building. Ho was locked up in tho prison pen, which was in a filthy and dirty condition. Mr. Wingate It waa a sickening place, waa it not ? A. Well, there was no carpet there at all events. Q.

Reilly, the Chief Supervisor of Election in the district, who came behind the counter and seized me by the collar ; he tore my coat and neoktie ; I resented the arrest ; Eellly was unable to take me and asked the marshal, who held a club In his hand, to give it to him and he would make me go ; while the wrangle was going on a telegram was received, wnen ueu - ly orled out, "We've got him ; now he must come." By the advice of friends I went with the Marshal; I was rudely pushed into a carriage .and taken down town, where I was brought before Commissioner Davenport and held in $5,000 ball for resisting tho Marshal; I was then taken upstairs and placed in the Iron cage; it was filthy in the extreme; the truth is, if I must say ao, that the calls of nature had to be attended to right thore. Q. You would not like to reside there in Bummer 1 A. Indeed I would not, air; nor in the Winter, nor yet for five minutes; I was there for about an hour and then furnished the requisite bail, but have not been brought to trial since. Patrick C. Guilie, of No. 208 West Twentieth street, testified that in May last a man representing himself as a marshal called upon me and demanded my papers, I refused; he then said he would arrest mo; I do manded his authority, when he pulled out a revolver and remarked: This is my authority, and if that does not satisfy you, look at this; here he produced a pair of handcuffs; I replied, bring In an officer and I'll go with you, otherwise I will not; but if you say you are a marshal show me your authority, and then I shall go; it ia not my style, he said, to handcuff men; after a good deal of talking the man left, but before doing so, he said his name was Marsh; in about a week afterward ho called again, and at last I appeared before Commissioner Davenport, who peremptorily demanded my papers, I said I had left them at home; the Commissioner grew somewhat excited, and and said I shall Bend a man here with you to whom I want vou to hand over your papers; you may send a man If you choose but I shall not surrender my papers; then, said he, I shall lock you up for the night, there are a great many others looked up, so you had better do aa you are told; I repeat I will not ; I was then kept for about an hour but permitted to go and have heard nothing of the matter since.

AN ABBAY OP MAES HALS AND CI.EHKS. At this point Mr. Davenport called In, one by one, at leaBt a dozen deputy marshals and half as many clerks, none of whom the witness could idoutify as "Littlo Mack," with the revolver and handcuffs. Witness said : I first told the Btory to my wife ; afterward to several friendB that he considered tho way he was treated an outrage ; have heard the matter frequently discussed since and read many criticiBms on it in the newspapers, especially the Irish weeklies. George Newman, 299 Avenue C, a carpenter, was next called : I came to this country in 1859 ; took out my first papers in 1866 and second papers in 1868; witness for me swore that he knew me four years ; papors wore taken from me at last election, and I was promised new papers ; no papers came for four days ; 1 went to Commissioner Davenport, and he said if I did not speak civilly he would have me arrested ; I told him I did not care ad - ; if I got Mr. Davenport in a country place ho would not come home without a broken head ; I will sue him yet for a thousand dollars' damages for keeping me running round him four days.

BSow a Police Officer Fell a Victim to the Walking - Mania Another Big Contest on the Tapis, Which will Interest the Police Force. Office Thomas Early, of the Third Precinct, known among his fellow officers as "Old Sport," got himself into an unpleasant predicament, a few nights ago. His devotion to athletic sports, and espcolally to pedestrianlBm, led him to leave his post of duty and to go to Coakley Hall, In Pacific street, where David Scan - Ian, the Dublin boy, was engaged in an effort to walk 480 miles ta six days. Sergeant Wm. Cadden, of the samo procinot, happened to bo in tho same place at tho time, but ho was off duty and in citizen's clothes. The interests of discipline of course compelled the Sergoant to take cognizance of Early's delinquency, Bnd "Old Sport" was brought beforo the Police Commissioners and fined one day's pay for indulging his curiosity on the occasion referred to. The slight penalty inflicted by tho Commissioners, was owing to the information thoy had received, that Officer Early was, at one time, a lainoua walker himself, and was overcome with a desire to see the Dublin boy on the track. But it seems that Early is not likely to escape bo lightly, after all, as challenges for a walking contest are pouring in daily upon him from various precincts. The only one which ho proposes to attend to at once is that issued by Hugh Mc - Gowan, alios "Barracks," of the Eleventh. Should the Police Commissioners give tho necessary permission, "Old 8port" and "Barracks" will start next Wednosday night, on a 500 mile walk, for a stake of $400, which amount the men of both precincts are willing to put up on their respective favorites. Mr. Coakley, proprietor of the fine walking track in Pacific Btreet, has promised to afford all the facilities for the interesting contest gratis. INJUNCTION. The Brooklyn Steam Transit Company's Suit for One AgainBt the Oity. Testimony for tho Defense General Jour - dan Under Examination Mr. David Dudley Field Gives him a Twist The Case Closed and Decision Reserved. The trial of the suit of the Brooklyn Steam Transit Company against the City of Brooklyn, to restrain defendant from interfering with the plaintiff, in constructing an elevated railway, was continued this morning, bofore Justice Pratt, in Special Term of tho Supreme Court. The evidence of the plaintiff, so far, has gone to Bhow that it is a valid corporation, and that the defendant interfered with the construction of tho plaintiff's works through the police. Tha answer admits the last named fact. The plaintiff was represented by Colonel John H. Bergon and Mr. David Dudley Field and Mr. Dudley Field. The defendant appeared by Corporation Counsel DeWitt and General B. F. Traoy. The defense waa begun, and Mr. Da Witt called General James Jourdon. Mr. David Dudley Field asked that Mr. DeWitt first state what case he exnected to moke out. Mr. DeWitt said the testimony would show that. The Court said it was the practice hero to make no opening in equity coses. Genera Tracy said he supposed the Court knew that any opening would only confuse the case. General Jourdan said he was President of Police and Excise. Attention was called to an interruption on Atlantic avenue, the digging of a hole in the street ; Gen - oral Jourdan had a consultation with the Mayor and Mr. DeWitt with reference to the placing of castings on the street at DeKalb avenue and Fulton street. By tho Court Yon claim that you havo a right to interfere in your answer ? Mr. DoWitt No, not at this rtage. The Court thought that the conversation between Genoral Jourdan and the Mayor waa unnecessary. Mr. DoWitt Look at that order. Mr. D. Field Oh. wait; let's see that. Mr. DoWitt Was that order issued by your direction 1 A. Yes. Q. To whom was it dispatched ? A. To all captains of police. The order was dated June 3, 1878, 4:10 P. M., and directed the police not to interfore with any one tearing up streets TO OON8TBXJOT ELEVATED BMLROADS. Q. What led to the issuing of this order ? A. A consultation with the Mayor aud Corporation Counsel. The order waa offered in evidence and objected to by the plaintiff. Mr. DeWitt began to read, "AH on alarm" Mr. David D. Field Yes, you're all alarmed. Mr. DeWitt (reading) To all in general a'arm : Captains: Send out forthwith and direct your nion not to interfore with any one tearing up Btreeta to construct olovated railroads. To Mr. Field General Jourdan flald that he gave directions to the Sergeant to protect Mr. Richardson's property, and arrest any men who removed the rails, scantling, etc., put over tho holes dug by tho plaintiff, by Mr. Richardson. To Mr. DeWitt General Jourdan said that after this order tho work of tho plaintiff did not go on ; the direction was put in a written order and waB not revoked or modified ; this property of Bichardson's waa on tho public street where the elevated railway was constructing its work ; General Jourdan was not asked to give protection to the railroad men. Q. The result of your interference was that Mr. Richardson's work went on aud the plaintiff's was stopped ? A. No, sir. Q. But the work did not go on ? A. Ho, sir. Q, And Richardson' railroad cars ran 1 A. Yes, sir. Q. Wasn't this work Mr. Richardson waa doing a hew side rail, a turnout t A. No, sir. Q. Waa it a new track 1 A. Yes, sir, a turnout. Q. Was not that what I asked you ? A. No. elr. Q. The only interference was laying a now track 1 A. A new rail on the old way. Q. You don't know that it waa a sheer jiretense ? A. I know the pavement was relaid, but cannot say when. Mr. E. B. Husted, Clerk of the United 8tates Court, produced a judament by the South 8ide Railroad against the plaintiff. The South Side Railroad Company subscribed for $25,000 of stock in tho Steam Transit Company, and paid in ten per cent., which it afterward sued for and recovered. Mr. DeWitt held that it determined that the corpora tion was disbanded and THE MONEY PAID BAOS. Judge Pratt thought it concluded nothing except as between tho parties. It did not affect the City of Brooklyn. Mr. Field objected. It was admitted and oxcoption was taken. Officer Daniel Ferry naid that Genoral Jourdan came to him when on duty on Atlantio avenue, and told him not to interfere unless there was a breaoh of tho peace. The police did not interfere. He was sent there from the station with sometimes oight others. The officers did not interfere with the digging of holes by tho plaintiff's workmen. While one lot digged out, the other filled in. Mr. Field You held one man and let the other fight You knew which gang was for the elevated railroad ? A. Yob, sir. Q. Didn't you stop them removing tho obstructions put over the hole? A. No, sir. Q. Waa there anything over tho hole ? A. Stones and railroad iron. Q. You didn't stop the other workmen from removing the stones and iron 7 A. No, Blr. Q. Did not you know that Richardson put the things over the hole to ombarrasB the worknion ? A. No, sir. Q. Did you prevent the men from removing the obstructions from the holes? A. No, sir; we didn't interfore. Q. You didn't prevent Richardson's men from hindering them 7 A. No, sir. Captain P. Leavoy, of the Third Precinct, said that the police did not interferre ; they saw tho men on both sides; one digging, the other filling in. Q. Did any one try to take the rails and Btonos away 1 A. No, sir ; they tried to remove them. Q. Now, Mr, Officer, what do you mean ? A. I mean one party would try to remove a rail, and another POT HIS FOOT ON IT. Q. Don't you rememlier Mr. Snow asking you for protection ? A. I disremcmber. Q. Did anybody ask you for protection ? A. 1 don't remember. Q. Didn't somo one toll you the work of the elevated railway was being stopped and their property destroyed? A. I dlBromember. Mr. De Witt said that Mr. S. B. Chittenden was an important witness, and, being a member of Congress, waa not amenable to a subpena. He had promised to come next Saturday. He would testify to the ontiro history of the plaintiff, from the beginning to the disbanding, and show that they had been advised that their charter had lapsed, that the scheme was too expensive, and that they had consented to abandon their charter. Mr. De Witt asked for an adjournment until Saturday next to secure Mr. Chittenden'B teetlmony. Mr. Field said if they wanted an adjournment they must apply for it on affidavits. They could have sent a commission to Washington. The defense to - day had gone through with a mere Bham. It was last week agreed that this case should close to - day. Mr. DeWitt said that the plaintiff's books were now in Court. He asked to see the books beforo the caso was begun this morning, and he had not been permitted to see them. He did not purpose putting the books in as his evidence, for how did he know what had been put in them 7 Judge Pratt said they muBt go on with the case. If it was necessary afterward to bring in a witness, then it must be done in an affidavit.

Confirmation services were held at half past eleven o'clock this morning to Ujg Jewish Synagogue p Boerum place near State street . The" Jewishlaw requires that at the age of thirteen all children of the faith shall be confirmed, and as two of the youthful attendants t the Synagogue reached that age this morning, It was deemed well that they Bhould be confirmed together. Their names are Jacob Bonen and Alfred Newman. The Synagogue was crowded with tho members of the congregation, and twenty of the youthful associates of those to be confirmed occupied front seats. Many of the people present wore over their shoulders what is known as the "tlasso" or the "the robs of holiness." Those only who have been confirmed, and who have obligated themselves to uphold the taws of the Jewish covenant, are permitted to wear the "tlasse." Rabbi Tulsner officiated at the services, and at their commencement the boys to be confirmed stepped inside the railings at either sldo of him. Prayer in Hebrew waa then offered, all the congregation standing. As is customary in the Synagogue, the hat was not removed. Young men are married with their hats on, and so these two boys were this morning confirmed without having to uncover their heads. After the prayer tha Rabbi delivered an address on Hebrew onflrmation, its solemn rites and the resolutions that ought to be formed in the minds of those who were to be confirmed. At tho conclusion of his remarks he changed his position bo aa to face the boyB, and then asked them if they were willing to obligate themselves to the upholding of the Jewish laws. Havtag replied in the affirmative, the boys were confirmed. They then faced the audience, and each of them delivered on address in English on confirmation. Newman spoke first, and for his age his remarks were neat, concise and well put. Both boys explained In plain language the nature of confirmation, and the services were brought to a close with singing. t i..iHn mrmuroime the ' - tlasse" was placed over the shoulders of both boys, and they were congratulated by all present.

The troubles of Emma Huttou and her reputed husband, William Hutton, an employe of tho Brooklyn Ferry Company, have again found their way into court. Less than oight months ago Emma, then a maid, caused Button's arrest for ruining her. After numorous adjournments a compromise was effected, Emma agreeing not to trouble Hutton any more. It appears that, after the settlement of their difficulties, the pair' coino together again. The result was that tho girl became Mrs. Hutton, but whethor by virtue of a ceremony by a minister or magistrate, or by a mutual compact, .can not be stated. At any rate Emma, in the present proceedings against William for assault and battery before Justice Soulier, presiding in the Fourth District Court, this morning, gives her name as Hutton. From the statement of mma, who is a good looking young woman with flashing black eyes, to tho reportor, it appeared that William and herself have nevor got along well in their Dlllings and cooings. Their love spats havo been numerous, and they have frequently culminated in fistic encounters, In which William invariably came out first best. Tho particular assault for which William was arraigned thia morning occurred some timo since. Emma was returning from New York during the eveniug. She passed adjacent to the dwelling in which William boards. According to hor story, he followed to her the Eastern District, and when at tho corner of North Tiiird and Third streets he STRUCK HER ON THE FACE with his clenched hand and knocked her down. He hen kicked her, and while sho was lying on the ground he walked away toward the Grand street Forry and crossed to New York. Sho followed him part of the way. Next day with blackoned eyes and bruised face, sho applied to Justice Elliott for a warrant for William's arrest. Beforo signing tho necessary legal document for Hutton's apprehension the magistrate asked Emma if she did not annoy him by being at the ferry while at work. Sho doniod ever having done bo, and asserted that it was ho who followed her. She wanted him to cease to trouble her. Since the warrant was obtained Emma claims that Hutton has struck her eeveral times. In anBwer to tha reporter's query as to why William follows her, she said sho supposed he yet liked her. " Then why does he beat you 7" askod the writer. " OH, THAT'S A WAY HE HAS OF SHOWING HIS LOVE," responded a handsome young girl who accompanied Emma. "I don't care about the man any more."' said Emma, "I did love ' and gave up parents and rolatives and everything that woman IioMr dear for him. But ho ha betrayed and Bpurned mo and I now hate him. I wont to have uothiug more to do with him." "Never mind what she says, she loves him as much as ever," remarked her companion. An examination of the case was adjourned. NO CLOTHES ON II IS HACK. "William Dunn, who lives at 109 Graham street, was bronght before Justice Fisher thiB morning with nothing but a pair of pants on his legs. He was very drunk last night, and Officer McCue arrested him for disorderly conduct. Clerk Courtney lent his rubbers to Dunn, and tho officer put his blouse on him. The Judge committed him till Monday morning for examination. MONEY MARKET. Walx, SmEET, February 13 P. M.

For the Tompkins Avenue Con gregational Church. Commencing with a New Minister and all Debts Paid Ry. Samuel M. Freelaud at the Prayer Meeting. Last evening was to tho members of tho Tompkins avenue Congregational Church in a certain sense an anniversary, or if not that, then the commonco - ment of an era, of what they had more reasons than one for believing will.be a career of greater prosperity and usefulness thau their church lias yet experienced. The principal cause of their rejoicing was the pre sence at their usual Friday eveniug prayer meeting of Bev. Samuel M. Freeland, who, as already announced in tho Eagle, had accepted tho invitation to assume the pastorate of tho church. Their rejoicing in haling so - cured the services of an eloquent and highly cultured clergyman will no doubt bo shared In by the citizens of Brooklyn generally, as it is an event that docs not benefit only tho comparatively small uumlicr to whom lie has beou specially Invited to minister, but is on that concerns tho whole community. With the advent of a new minister the members also learned that their church had been placed on a secure financial basia. For some time raat the efforts of the officers havo been handicapped by a load of debts, but at a meeting held on Thursday night means wero pro vided to defray all outstanding obligations, and with tho resources now at tholr command they will be enabled to promptly defray all expenses. Thus the members felt that their efforts to improve the condition of the church and enlarge its Bphere of usefulness were not in danger ol being defeated by a constantly accumulating load of monetary obligations. The attendance at the prayer meeting was unusually large, aud tho feelings of all present were, no doubt, clearly expressed by General Heath, who stated, ou opening tho meeting, that the topic for consideration that evening was the SOURCE OF POWEB IN CHRISTIAN WORK. It was a subject that all felt was peculiarly appro priate for the occasion, under the cironmBtancos, as they had secured a learned and eloquent pastor, of whoso ministry at Newton, Mans., nothing but good had been reported, and they were freed from pecuniary embarrassments, and there was thus opened betoro them a wide and favorablo prospect for Christian work. That they should at tho outset endeavor to ascertain the pource from whence oonics the powor to render such work as they wero about entorlng upon, under such favorable auspice, tho moat effective, was singu larly appropriate. General Heath called attention in the first ulare tn the worda : "But yo shall receive power, after (hat tha Holy Ghost is come upon you," Acts, 1:8, and then read that portion of the nineteenth chaptor of the same lxiok, relating how tho H"ly Ghost was given by the hands of Paul to certain disciples whom hj found at EphesuB, bo that "they spake with tongues and prophe - oied." The touic thus annronriatclv introduced was after ward enlarged upon by Captain Duucau, Dr. Sherwood, Mr. Ido and others. When the services were about half over BEV. SAMUEL M. FREELAND rose and said : It was perhaps not proper that he xh - v.ild allow such an occasion to pass without Baying a few words. For four months ho had been asking the I.nrd for a fitting liold of labor, aud he had come anions them to Bee what work there was for hint to do. Until he found that that was tile field the Lnrd destinod hiin for, he did not wish to hay anything more on that puint, but he did not think it would bo fair for him to ansuuie tho position of general leader among them until theru had been greater experience and closor inMinaoy established between tlmni. He winhed to have timo full time to form an independent judgment, aud ho hoped their prayom and his for guidance would be answered. Ah to tho topic beforo them, the "Source of Power in Christian Work," there was, he thought, one dif.ttucti.jtj whiuh they Bhould make, and that was as to the qualincatiouB or those sngaged in the work and thu operation of the Spirit of Gtxl on different men. There were quallficationa for special work as could bo seen In the case of the Apostles, some of whom wore enabled to npeaa with tongues of prophecy ana to work miracles, and those powera wero glvon for spoclal work. In these modorn days, too, there were men who were qualified to perform sieciiU work. Of those could be mentioned Muller and Moody. If there, in that church, there was any special work to be done,God would give them special powers to do it, for the Lord did not deal in generalities. He died for each one present, and if there was any special work for them to do in life, then Hs would qualify them for It. If tho spirit of consecration ; the spirit of self denial and tho spirit of self furgetf ulnuas was In a man, then he would nave power.'aud it was impossible to deprive him of it. So he would have them pray and work and wait, and then the power would come for God's promises were made unto them. On the conclusion of tho prayer meeting tho numbers of tha church remained In tha room for a cunuiderabla time, in order to make the acquaintance of their new pastor. They were introduced to a gentleman in the prime of Ufo, broad shouldered, deep chested and of a compact, athletic build. He has a square, full forehead, from which the fine and luxuriant dark hair is brushed carelessly back. He has a clean shaven face, whose lineaments betoken onergy, ahrewduosa and refinement, and his manner was unaffected and genial. The Quality, however, that would most forcibly iniprtss a stranger on being introduced to Rev. Dr Freeland is a very evident purpose to be thoroughly independent and altogether untrammeled in doing whatever he may conceive to be his duty. That his ideas of duty will be those of a oultured Christian gentleman no one can doubt, neither can there be any doubt as to the manly and dignified manner in which he will present his views.
