t) v C LONDON. Tho Feeling in England Relative to the Spanish Republic. Cntriguoa of Oarlists and Oom munists. Forrlblo Charges in Regard to British Ship-Owners. From Our Oten Correspondent,' London, Fob. 27,1978. ITOTATHV WITH SPAIN—OARLISTS AND COMMUN ISTS UUimVINO TO THE SCENE. . Many Englishman who aro Conservatives at homo are lladicnlo abroad. There ought, ono would think, to bo on alliance between Conserv atives everywhere, and probably tho majority of real old Tories aro Carlisle, Legitimists, and what not, In tholr Continental sympathies. Bat many fly in the face of logic, and manifest as much dislike to Papal and absolutist supremacy as does tho veriest llopublican. Tho theological questlou is uppermost with somo, and any ene my of Romanism is tholr friend; whllo others have a genuine wish that English freedom should bo tho typo of freedom all over tho world. The progress of Republicanism in Europe trios tho faith of tho average Britisher. It is not what ho wanted. Ho views it with distrust. Amongst tho aristocracy tho Republic has no friends; and tho classes who ape tho aristocracy havo always on tholr Jips tho parrot cry, that tho French “ aro not lit for a Republic.” Tho mid dle classes sympathize with M. Thiers, though they begin to got tirod of his Intrigues and his plots; and tho rest of tho Commonwealth wish well to tho Republic. But if thoro is this division with Franco, which has at least kept a Republic above tho water for a couplo of years, what Is not laid of poor Spain I "Tho audacity of tho thing 1" exclaimed most folks when tbo action of tho Cortes was known; and, to this hour, tho surprise remains. It is pitiable to noto tbo anxiety of holders of Spanish stook. Truly thoso gontlomon havo had oxcitomont enough for iboir monoy. They havo been bumped and jostled about as much as any in vestors I know. Scarcely bavo iboy enjoyed a year of security. They button-hole you, and ask you what you roally think tho Spaniards will do. Thoy cannot mako up. their minds as to whether it is best to soil or to hold. Thoro is a fascination about Spanish stock. I havo known people got out of it during ono of tho many panics, and then, when tho stock wont up again actually return to it os purchasers. Tho situ ation is as open to conjecture os any ono could wish. Since tho Homburg tables woro closed, wo bavo bod nothing liko it. Solid, liborty-loving people would bo glad to aoo Figucras and Castclor succeed in their task, and thoy begin to got angry with tho Govern ment for withholding a full recognition. But, at the bottom of their hearts, they, too,'havo little actual faith. If thcro is no civil war be fore this letter reaches you, tho pervading dis trust will havo subsided; but distrust exists at tho present hour. Madrid, by tho way, is tho centre for special correspondents. Mr. Forbes, tho most daring as well as tho most ablest of tho class, was first in the city, as tho representative of tho Daily JVct 03, and other papers havo followed suit Your Now York contemporaries havo boon con strained to dispatch tho host men thoy can find. On tbo whole, in tbo excltod condition of Spain, this band of "specials'* is scarcely a pacific as surance. Poor Spain I Hero aro tho Carlists raising subscriptions in London, to bo spent on man and guns; and, only an hour ago, a French Communist, whoso iifo would not bo worth a day's purchase if ho woro soon in Paris, was gleefully showing to a friend of raino his ticket for Cadiz, and his invitation to como to Andalu sia, “ whore," ho said, “ there is much deter mination on socialist and torrritorial questions." Birds of proy, black and rod, Carlisle and Com munists, aro hurrying to tho scouo, and if they could only bo loft to fight it out, nobody of moderate opinions would object. The mischief Is, that they may stir others up to do tho fight ing for thorn. SUTI'-OWNEUS AND SEAMEN—A BLACK CHARGE. Have wo murderers among the owners of English ships ? Are rotten vessels sent out to ■ea in order to bo wrecked,— having boon first insured for as much money as will build now ones ? Such are tho questions to bo started in tho House of Commons in a fow days. Mr. Plimsoll, the member of Parliament who brings tho charge, is a solf-mado man; is ho justified in his charges, or does ho misroprosont and in vent ? Two actions for libel, brought by ship owners whom he all but names, are pending ; and os ho will plead justification, we shall know u little morons to tho charges against them; but I doubt if proceedings in a court of law form tho beat method of gotting at the truth. Tho Government ought to give Mr. Plimsoll tho Royal Commission ho asks for, and then wit nesses would speak freely. WHO MB. PLIMSOLL IS. Tho legislator who arraigns the ship-owners in those serious matters is a grave, thoughtful looking man. Ho wears spectacles, and has a studious air. If ho did not drop his “IPs," bis speaking would bo all tbo bettor; but then, as 1 said, ho has made his position for himself, and tho letter “ H ” was not much cared for by those who had charge of him in his infancy. “ For mouths and months " bo says of him self, “I lived in ono of tho model lodging houses. established mainly by tho efforts of Lord Shaftesbury. There is one ja Fottor-Lano, another in Hatton Garden, and indeed they are scattered all over Loudon. I wont there simply boaauso 1 could not afford a bettor lodging. J have bad to make 70. (3 por cent of which I paid for my lodging) last a wholo week, and did it. It is astonishing how Uttlo you can Uvo on when you divest yourself of all fancied needs. X had plenty of good wheat broad to oat all the week. and the half of a herring for a relish (less will do if you can't afford It, for it is a splendid fish), and good coffee to drink; and I know how much, or rather how little, roast shoulder -of mutton you can for 2d. for your Sunday dinner. Don't suppose I wont thoro from choice; I went there from stem necessity.” This is an awkward antagonist when ho once takes hold. If thoro really are ship-owners who .arc murderers, though holding their very .high, they may well tremble now, and carry tho face of death. A SLACK LOOK. Some thing with a black look, at all events, cannot bo domed. Nobody familiar with com merce ie ignorant of tho fact that “certain ship owners are ho known for their terribly frequent and disastrous louucb, and for their general dis regard of human life, that, after paying increas ingly high rates of premium for insurance in the porta whore they are known, the liipo some times comes when tuoy can only insure la Lon don, whore they are as yet un known ; and oven there, after still fur ther experience, their names become so black with infamy that nobody will insure their xiaka at any premium : and whoro it is neces sary, in tho course of nasiuoss, to insure cargoes not yet purchased, as oorn or cotton abroad, or not yot ready for delivery, as railroad iron for lorolgn ports, and whoro the ships are not taken np yet,—in which case it is usual to say on tho niip, “ in a ship or ships,’’—the brokers dare not offer their slips in tho room, or would have no chance of success if they did, nnloss they wrote under tho usual particulars those damning words: *• Warranted not to bo shipped in any vessels belonging to —, , —— tho blanks being billed up’,with the names of certain ship-owners, Jlr. Flimsoll declares holms soon slips so indorsed, 41 and that, too, with names which, however well known by afow, staudfair injtho eye of tho world, in which their infamous owners hold their heads yery high indeed.” WHAT YOU MAY DO. No moans aro neglected by Parliament to pro wide for tho safety of lifo auhoro; but you may Build a ship in any way you ploaso; .you may uso timber utterly unfit; you may uso it in quantity utterly inadequate; but noonp has any author ity to interfere. “You may even,” says Mr. Plimsoll, “ buy an old ship of 60 tons burthen, by auction, for £SO. sold to be broken up be cause extremely old and rotten. tihe had had a narrow escape on her last voyage, and had suf fered so severely that she was quite unfit to "go to sea again without more being spout in repairs upon her than sho would ,bo worth when done. Instead of breaking up this old shin, bought for 4s per ton (tho cost of a uow ship being £lO to £l4 per ton), aa was expected, you may give her a coat of paint,—she is too rotten for calking,—and, to the dismay of her late ownora, you may prepare to send her to sea. You mar bo remonstrated with twice, i» the strongest terms, againstdolngso.—ovan to-being told that, if/you' persist, ana the mob are lost,' you deserve to bo tried for manslaughter. - You may thou engage men In another port, and, they having Blgnod articles without seeing tho shin, you may Bond them to the port whore tho ship Hob, In tho custody of a runner. You may then (after ro-ohi intoning tho ship, which ought not to bo allowed), if you have managed to insure her heavily, load her until her nmindook is within two foot of tho water amidships, and uond her to sea. Nobody can prevent yon. Na'y. more, if the men become restive, you can arrest them, without a magistrate's warrant, and take them to prison, and tho magistrates (who havo no choice ; they hove not to make, hut only to administer, tho law) will commit them to prison for twolvo weeks with hard labor; or, hotter still, for you, you may send for a policeman On board to overcome tho mutineers, • and induce them to do their duty I And then, if tho ship is lost with all hands, you will gain a largo sum of money, and you will bo asked no questions, as no Inquiry won will over bo hold’, over tho unfortunate men, unless (which has only hap- Soned onoo, 1 think) some member of tho [ouso.askq for inquiry. Tho river policeman who. In ono case, threatened with imprisonment a refractory orow, and ufgedthomto do tholr duty, told mo afterwards (when they wore all drowned) that he and his colleague at tho river* side station had spoken to oaob other about tho ship being dreadfully overloaded, as she passed their station on tho river before ho wont on hoard to urge duty: and that ho thou, when ho saw mo. 1 rued badly that bo hadn't looked ’em up, without talk, as thou they wouldn't have boon drowned.* •’ AMERICAN ACTORS IN ENGLAND. Mr.-Emmet-has won reputation and earned money in England. His portrait,-life-size, is posted on tho walls as a recommendation to tho theatre at which ho performs, lu tho cartoon ho wears » velvet coat, and under his arm is a walking stick. Mr. Emmet, ploys very cleverly in a piece called "Fritzhut tho play is placed on tuo stage in a particularly careless manner, according to tho customs of society. Tho mala of all work wears a low-nocked dross and short slooves ; and gontlomon attend a ball in frock-coats and colored ties ; while tho villain of tho piece wears a " sombrero, ’ aetlio novels say, in-doors and out. Tho Frouoh, when thov boo tboso things, declare that tho English aro outer barbarians ; but I think wo might put up with a good many mistakes In tho wav of dressing if wo only had bettor aotors ana ac tresses. - Besides, tho scono of 4( Fritz ” is laid In Now York.

' THE CALDWELL CASE. Washington, March 22.—Tho Senate proceeded to tbo consideration of the Caldwell cose. Mr. FERRY (Mich.) regretted that the Senator from Connecticut (Mr. Ferry) submitted tho resolution of expulsion. Uo had given 'oloflo-attention to tho ten days* debate on tho question, whether bribery vitiates tho election of a member, This debate was confined to tbo legality of tho act by which Mr. Caldwell held his scat. It appeared tho majority of tho Committee on Elections were in doubt as to tho proper method to bo punned, therefore they chose to present tbo ques tion Involving tho validity of tho election, Mr, MORTON Interrupted Mr. Ferry’s remarks as to the resolutions already pending from different Sen ators on the subject, and said that he. as Chairman of the Committee, took the ground that tho Senate had a choice of remedies, and favored expulsion, but tho majority of tbo Committee thought proper to present a resolution declaring tho so&t vacant, rather than ono or gximuiou. Mr. FERRY, resuming, said ho would not commit Linuolf In advance as lo tho merits of qmvdtloun tu. volved, but should approach each of them with tho re spect duo to tho State's action and his constitutional duty to deal rigidly with officialwrong. He then offered an amendment to tbo amendment' pending, to piaco hack tho first question substantially whero It first appeared from the Committee, os fol lows : That Alexander Caldwell bo and Is hereby declared to have been elected Senator of tbo United States by tbo Legislature of Kansas.'* • Mr. ALCORN briefly discussed tbo question of Ju risdiction, maintaining that the Couatltutian inakca tbo act of the Legislature in tbo election on a Senator tbo subject of renew by tbo Senate. • Mr. TERRY (Conn.), in explaining tbo reasons Tor having heretofore offered amendments to tbo Commit tee’s resolution for tbo proposed expulsion of Air. Caldwell, said that, in examining all the evidence, bo was unable to avoid tbo conclusion that the election in

1871 was effected by bribery in tbo interest of Mr. Caldwell, tbo purchase money having been paid by Mr. Caldwell himself. Having arrived at ibis conclusion of facts, It seemed to be essential not simply to tbo dignity and honor of the Senate, and • to the state of public foaling of tbo country, but for the preservation of tbo Institutions under which wo live, that tbo Senate should in somo way emphatically express condemnation of the transaction. According to common law and usage running through oil English decisions until now, a bribed vote is no vote, and if It bo found that bribed votes effected tbo election, tboy must bo cast out and the election voided. When tbo charge was made that the Senator’s election was pro cured by bribery, it was tbo boundou duty of tbo Sen ate, under tbo constitutional olauso that made tbo Senate the judge of tbo election qualification, to in quire into tbo facts. ' ,• ’ . Some time wfcs spent In an exchange of views, as to fixing tbo order In which the ponding' propositions shall bo voted on, but no arrangement was made. No Senator rising to continue t}io debate, tbo closing Speech devolved on Mr. Morton, who sold bo was not ready to do so to?day,'arid‘ moved that tbo Senate go Into ‘ oxccuUyo session, which was agreed to.

Funerals of Foster mid RffcCllmney Yesterday—Attempted Suicide of the Former. Succfflf Dispatch to The CMeaao Tribune. Nkw York, March 22.—1n tbo Sheriff's office It ia believed that Foster attempted to poison himself yes terday morning. The matron of tbs prison found tbo condemned roan In a stupor at 8:16. After much-shaking ho was aroused and confessed that bo bad taken a six-grain opium pill. Tbo matron forced him to swallow two cups of strong colfoo which made him vomit. Doctors Noaila and Vnndowatcr . were called, and Foster was taken into tbo corridor and- miked up and down, white ice water was freely .poured upon his bead. When tbo fiborllT learned these facts bo hurried the execution, and Foster was dying when bo was banged. Such is tbo story going about, but tbo authorities refuse to give tbo particu lars, although they admit tbo doctors say Foster showed symptoms of poisoning, snd there Is somo truth in it. The matron's' brother is dead, and sbo cannot bo scon. There ia to bo an investigation. A deputy, who was once a playmate of Foster, is sus pected of giving him the pill. Your correspondent talked with the deputy .in question to-night, and bo says Foster was tbo greatest coward bo over know. lie docs not bclievo ha had nerve enough to kill himself. Dr. Tyug denies that Foster showed any symptoms of poisoning. Tbo writer’s observations previous to and during tbo execu tion lead him to believe tbo story a canard. Tbo Deputy Bhorilf alluded to above told tbo writer that Foster was as impenitent and unprepared for death when on the gallows as tbo day bo killed Putnam, 110 added: “It’s ail over now. but Hill was a bad man. Zbavoboeu acquainted with him since bo was a boy, and no one know him better than I did.” Tbo matron of (be Tombs was interviewed to night, and denies that there is any truth lu tbo re ported attempted suicide of Foster. Foster was burled at 10 o'clock this morning, at Greenwood. Tbo Revs. Dra. Tyng and Walker performed tbo Episcopal ser vice. Only relatives were present. No Indies accom panied tbobodjjto (bocemetery. This lain violation of ono of tbo cemetery regulations, which eayu] no per son who has died in prison, or bos been executed -for any crime, shall bo burled therein. New York, March 22.—Foster was burled this morning at Greenwood. Rev. Dra. Walker and Tyng officiated. Roth declared there was no truth in tbo statement as to tbo attempt of Foster (o commit sui cide, and tbo facts as to bis condition arc a refuta tion of tbo report, A statement Is published to-day, based on informa tion derived from a Tombs official, that Foster took poison on tbo night before his execution, About 8 o’clock yesterday rooming tbo mat ron of tbo Tombs found Foster sick, and iu explanation, bo then admitted that be bad taken poison, and many of bis symptoms lu every way confirmed this suspicion. On this account tbo Sheriff- hastened the execution, aud while many be lieved that tbo duration of tbo religious exorcises was tolling on Foster’s nerves, it was lu reality a weakness caused by tbo poisou that was acting on him. A Tombs physician says that Foster would have died If bis execution bad boon delayed until 10 o'clock. Latexi— lt la insisted lu some of tlio evening papers that tlio story of Foster’s attempted suicide is cor rect. Tho theory is well supported by circumstantial evidence, os well aa to tho statements of the Doctor of tho Tombs, and minor oillclala. Tlio impression is that Foster took opium about 5J o’clock lu tho morn ing of tho execution. Some assort that this may havo been taken to lulluouco his nervous system, hut the evidence goes to show that tho doso was sultlclont to £ reduce death had tho execution boon delayed an hour ter.

REAL ESTATE.; Tho groat feature in connection with roal estate at present continues to bo tho speculation In suburban lands. Tho Instances given In our Issue of last Sunday, showing that thoro hod boon an average rise of about 100 per cent in the prices of almost tho entire district known as tho Blue Island Ilidgo since last year, scorn rather to stimulate tho aativity.in • speculation than to in duce any oxtm caution about investments. A good many cautious pooplo shako tbolr heads apd say, " Woll, this tiling can’t go on always 1” But when wo como to think of it, those same wise pooplo have boon saying Just, tho' samo;thing about all property in Chicago for tho last half-dozen years, and while thoy have boon shaking their heads and refusing to tako any interest in It, poor men have grown rich by tho tbo rleo in values during tho padt six years can bo given than of tho property on tho avenues south of Twonty-socond street, and as far as tho city limits. Six years ago, lots on Michigan avonuo, in tho neighborhood of Twomy-fourth street, woro hard'to sell at SBO por front foot} on Prairlo avonuo, from Sixteenth street to Twenty-sixth street, values ranged from SIOO to SOO por front foot, and on Columot, at about tho same prices or lower. Tho sarao property soils now at from S4OO to SSOO per front foot, and many a man who considered tho pricos of six years ago too high for a prudent, per-, son . to pay, fools perfectly satisfied that tho present pricos aro legitimate, and that tho property is worth tho money ; and many of tho very mon who thou said pricos woro too high, have bought since and paidthroo or four times as much as thoy refused to pay for tho eaino property flvo or six years ago. Nearly tbo same percentage of rise, only , on a lower scale of price, has boon oxp'orioucod all tho woy out to Englewood in ono direction, and Ilydo Park in another. If tho riso in values in other directions has not boon so groat, It has at least boon enough to give purchasers greater profits than thoy could possibly bavo mado In any othpr kind of invest ment. TOWARD HUMBOLDT PARK. Wo nolo tbo rocont sale of 5 acres in the W. U of S. W. H of S. E. Hof S. W. Xof Soc. 3, 89, 13, fronting on Chicago avenue, lust west of Humboldt Park Boulevard, for $2,800 per aero. This property was offered something over a year ago for $1,500 per aero, and two months ago was offered for $2,000 per acre. One of tho effects of the great lire was to transfer a largo proportion of tho North Bide to tho neighborhood of tho artesian woU and north east of that toward tho rolling mills. Hundreds of mechanics and laborers who had lived in their own houses in tho district between Sedgwick street and tho North Branch lost their houses by tho flro, but wore ablo to sell their lots for enough to buy others in tho northwestern nuortor of tho city about tho junc tion of Milwaukee and North avenues, and have enough loft to build small wooden cottages on them. Tho result has boon an immonso amount of this kind of building along those parts of Milwaukee and North avenues during the last year. PROGRESS AND PROTECTS IN LAKE VIEW. The mooting of -residents of Lake View, on Thursday evening, reported briefly in our issuo of Friday, has this significance: It was called by parties who arc in favor of tho immediate an nexation of tho southernmost portion of Lako View to Chicago, But those found themselves largely outnumbered In tho gathering by tho op ponents of tho measure, and tho assemblage found itself afloat on a sea of wrangling and dis agreement, in which the ntm of' the comiug to gether foil plump to tho bottom. Tho intention, however, is one tho neighboring property inter ests should take into consideration. Tho popu lation which -property-owners in Lake View are-now inviting is essentially of city peo ple, and demands that city privileges shall roach them. They want gas, water, side walks, sewerage, and tbo abatement of nuis ances. If local authority secures thorn, they prefer, to escape tho higher taxes of tho city. Towns like Lake View must bo liberal and wide awake, or they cannot escape tho dismem berment they naturally oppose, and in tho lafco instance have apparently defeated. There is no happy retreat far an old fogy anywhere in tho outskirts of Chicago, since farm lands have boon staked into city lots. If Lake View wishes to receive 25,000 now inhabitants !u tho next few years, she must come into tho lino of generous improvements, or tho new-comers will no rest less until they are taken under tho wing of tho municipality. LAKE VIEW IMPROVEMENT. Tbo Tomi Hall, rccoutly orootod on nutated street, a woll-nroportioued, handsome building, costing about 510,000, will probably bo in a suf ficient state of forwardness for use for town election purposes early in April. At tho session of Congress just closed, an ap propriation of something over 520,000 was mado, wo understand, for the fencing and decoration of tho Marino Hospital grounds. It is to bo hoped that nothing will interfere with tho; prompt ox,-* f ondituro of this amount precisely in tho dirco ion intended, and in such a manner as shall make those grounds what the surroundings of several, of tho Marine Hospitals in other cities are: models of-good taste. '• 1 ■ BAVENBWOOD, in western part of tho town of Lake View, seems likely to double its population tho present sum mer. Property has never boon in ns active de mand there before. Tho people of Ba yonswood a?o taking active steps for tbo immediate construction of railroad crossings, culverts, (sidewalks, etc., and expect soon to have a first-class brick sower. This enterprise will- bring a largo addition to the popula tion, and tho rest of tbo town of Lake View -if it Is wise will follow the excellent example. TUB EXTENSION OF DEARBORN STREET. In tbo groat improvements, from time to time suggested, and agreed upon by our Common Council, of tho various streets and avouuos of the'city, that of old Dearborn is to play, as is now evident, no inconspicuous part. For a long time previous to tbo Are it was tho post ofl|co afreet of tbo city, and until tbo carrier system was established, it was among tbo most thronged- and lively of tbo business centre. Tbo street, as now being built up anow, while more splendid in its architecture than before, will also bo as busy a thoroughfare. Near its junction with South Water it will continue to bold Ua wholesale, business. At the comer of Lake will bo tbo Tromont House, now being completed as ono of tbo finest buildings of tbo city, and to bo occupied among the first of tbo now botols tbo coming summer. Passing south, will bo tho McCormick block (tbo old Kovoro building), Hoes* building, Williams’ block, Fullerton's blook, tbo McCarthy building, Portland block, Henning is Snood's building, Cobb’s building, The Tribune Building. Hawley’s Building, Ful ler Block, tbo Public Library Building, Honoro Blook, oto. Its business, as beforo, will bo mis cellaneous. It will havo several hotels, among which will bo tbo Oommoroial, Tromont. Kuhns, fit. Julian, and tbo Honoro House. Tub Tuin dne and Journal offices, with tho Publio Library on tho Post-Ofiioo lot, will make that port of Doarbom between Madison and Monroo an attractive centre for readers and gosaippors. Tbo Common Council havo now passed an ordi nance for tho extension of Doarboru to Four teenth street, which will add another mile to its length. Tbo assessments for that part of tbo exten sion from Monroo to Jackson street havo boon mado out, and aro now In tbo bands of tbo City Collector. Tbo gross amount is 5190,8-11.811. This is, in fact, tbo second assessment mado upon tbo property. The present ono was mado boc&uso tbo city failed to collect tbo full amount of tbo first, and, further, that iu tbo case of a portion of tlio first an appeal was mado tq tho punromo Court and tbo assessment was reversed and remanded for a now apportionment. Tho interim thus given afforded an oppor tunity for thoso not satisfied with, or otherwise desiring to ovaclo " tbo benefits " as adjusted by tbo first assessment. Aware of what was even tually to como, if by any moans, “.right or wrong,” they (faflirod to ovado or roGyco those benefits. Hero was tlio chance. It now Booms that at least ono party availed himself of this op portunity. Thoro woro two lots, (u tills assess ment, Which, from tho fi\ot that they woro tho samp ip eizio, with tho samo frontage, and tho same in value, should havo been liable for tbo samo “ benefits. But snob was not tbo case on tho saquol shows. Between tbo two assessments, aftor the first and beforo tho second, one of thoso two lota bad boon so divided and distributed to other' parties (in tho family I) that It paid as benefits tho sum of $10,577, while tho other lot, adjacent and of the samo value, undivided and not conveyed, paid to tbo city $23,500, a difference of $12,923. Tbo owuor of tbo lot manipulated in this way to escape assessment was Mr. J. Young fioammon. After tbo first assessment this work was done. When the acamd was mado It was discovered. Tbo division was mado into tbroo lots of eighteen foot each, and one of four feet I Tbo conveyances being mado to a son and daughter. The man who eaves $12,029 makes that ' i amount of mono?, but thoro ought to bo eotnv honor or dishonor attached to the way lu which Buoh n tiling in done. HOUSE RENTS. Notwithstanding tho pobabillty that house rents'aTo llkoly to bo high this spring! wo do not boar of so much preparation for building blocks of dwellings as tho circuthstancos 1 would scorn to jußtiry. It may bo that capital which would otherwise bo put into tbo more legitimate in vestment of building dwellings Inside tho citj IlmitH to* 8011, has boon to a considerable extent drawn off into speculations in'miburban lands.' or it may bo a little too oarlv yet to ostimati tho amount of this class of building that will be done, but as far as can bo foreseen now tbo sup ply of a good medium class of dwellings will bi far below tho demand this summer. ; Saturday's transfers.
