Cal., April ft—The city 0 Oakland has Imd many exciting evonti ia its history, but nothing has oc cttfred here to compare with the tuf moi «ansed early yesterday by a regi aientof unemployed toen which left San .Francisco Wednesday to join Corey's army in its journey to Washington. The Hot alarm was sounded, .the governor was asked to call out ;the national guards, extra 'police arid deputy sheriffs wore sworn in and armed with rifles, and prepare tions made for fighting of the bloodiest kind, because 640 unemployed desperate men refused to leave the city. The city raised money to pay tbeir faro to Sacramento, but the men re fused to ride in the box cars provided and demanded passenger, coachek Tho citizens were determined they should leave, and at ll o'clock Mayor Pardee issued positive orders to Chief of Police Schaefer that the industrial army must be driven out of the city by force. Preparations were made to dislodge the tramps, who at first showed fight, but tho determined attitude of the citizens cowed them and the industrials agreed to submit peacefully and at 3:aO o'clock a. m. formed a line, and, escorted by .JOO armed police and citizens, marched to Sixteenth street station, where they entered the box cars; and shortly after 4 o'clock the train pulled out for Sacramento.

The first witness yesterday was Miss Pollard's friend, Dr. Mary Parsons,, who \vas called ill rebuttal, the desire being to establish the identity of the handwriting upon the slip of paper alleged to have been attached to the clothing of Miss Pollard's child. Dr. Parsons testified that the slip shown was the identical one which had been pinned to the child's clothing, and that the words "Please name my J>aby Dietz Downing" were in her handwriting, Then Mary McKenzie testified that the baby, was born in her house on Se vent street, and that Col. . . .lif'eekin- ridge had passed at that time as the husband of the mother. The four mysterious volumes of Irving which had figured in that part of the case centering about the Norwood convent and in which the disputed Christinas card had been found, were placed on the witness stand. Then Attorney Carlisle Walked to the stand and took the oath. Attorneys on ;he other side objected, but j'udge Jradley ruled that as the evidence of SistersAgnes and Augustine mighthave suggested to the minds of the jurymen ,he possibility that the card had been nit on the book by Mr. Carlisle, it..was mtirely proper that the latter should >e heard upon the subject. .

The number was 2,090 in January, i,i03 in February, and J*005 in March. The commercial liabilities were Srfl,320,8iv7in January, $17,030,410 in February, and §14,736,893 in March. Nearly half the commercial liabilities Were of firms failing during the first month; much more than half of the trading liabilities, 51 per cent, as the full statement shows, 43 per cent of .the manufacturing liabilities, and 49 per cent of the other commercial liabilities. 'Moreover, nearly two-thirds of the banking liabilities were of failures in the first month and over half of the railroad liabilities. Though the number of commercial failures, 4,207 in the United States, was never equaled in any quarter until the third of hist year, the average 'it *.itijijiy.ie3 is only $J4.600, which is lowck >J»« appeared in the records of thirty-<'U»l>« years at any time closely succeeding any serious reverse. The degree of commercial soundness and health thereby indicated gives ground for hope that the liquidations consequent upon the disaster of 1393 have been in largo measure accomplished. Wheat has been lifted about 1 cents by reports of serious injury to the plant, but the accounts are more than usually conflicting and there is much PITH OP CONGRESSIONAL. f^JLl .

Senator Allison attacked • tho tariff bill in a speech, charging that it is too sweeping in its reductions. Congiessman Bland hopes to pass his seigniorage bill over the President's veto. Senator Palmer may demand the removal of Deputy Pension Commissioner Dell, believing ho inspired a visitation of office seekers. Treasury oflicials attribute to the seigniorage bill the great number of Sherman notes and greenbacks presented for redemption.

Ooxey Tears Ho Will Not He Able to reed It McKJEERFORT, Pa,, April ,—Gen. Coxey has issued orders that no more recruits be allowed to join and has gone even further. Formerly the penalty for infraction of orders was the loss of a meal. Now the penalty is expulsion from the army. There are few of the tramp class in the commonweal now. Its members are decent out-of-work men who have believed that Coxey would lead them to . Washington and feed them all the way. Coxey's fear is that he can not find food for the rapidly increasing numbers. The worst part of the country is to come and food is scarce. In a day or two this band of men will strike the mountains, For days they will be in a country destitute of houses or towns and in one place a jump of sixty miles must be made before anything resembling a town is met with, and the question of food will be a very serious matter. The ariny numbered 503 men when it marched out of Homestead yesterday, Tine inarch, to McKeesport was begun at 11 o'clock. Nearly the whole distance of fourteen miles seemed to he Hp hill.

Brock- inriclge; had never sustained improper relations with Rhodes nor told Breckinridgo that such relations had existed; she had not accepted money from the defendant at the time of her alleged fall. Miss Pollard also denied in all its details the story of the mock marriage between her and Owen Tinsley Christmas day, 1883. There was no understanding that she should deceive Mrs. Blackburn or that she should falsely represent to Major Moore that she was to bo married. With M iss Pollard's retirement from the stand the plaintiff's rebuttal closed. Col. Breckinridgo reappeared as a witness and denied that ho had told the colored woman, Mary Yancey, that he wanted her to cook for them when they went to housekeeping; that Miss Pollard was never to his knowledge in his room at Airs. Iloyt's. This ended the testimony. The attorneys arranged to submit their requests for instructions by the court to the jury on the legal aspects of the ease to-day and then the jury was excused until Monday. TIUUMAN DISARMS SOLDIERS, Tliey, However, Own Oilier Arum and Will at Once Ifiqulp Themselves. OIIABLEBTON, S, 0., April 7.—Gov. Tillmaa has ordered J. Watts, assistant adjutant-general of the state, to disarm and disband the Fourth brigade, South Caroling, Volunteer troops. The charges are that the brigade refused to obey the governor's orders and repair to Darlington to suppress the insurrection. The process of collecting the arms will begin to-day. Those who think, however, that the Fourth brigade will be left unarmed will find themselves mistaken. Some of the companies have the arms issued to them by the state. A good many of them have rifles and cannon which they bought and paid for them- selyes. There seems to be no fear that the companies of the Fourth brigade Will disband. From 1871 to 1870 they enrolled as rifle clubs whilo the ne- groes monopolized the militia of the Itfinister Tburgton o| llavyaij w§& Miss Porter $t gt.
