Washington, March 2-I.—Tho commercial valuo of tho word of a Senator of tho United States does not rank so high in this locality as it did before the days of Credit Mobilior investiga tions ; nevertheless, your correspondent was led last evening to make a statement on tho positive authority of Senator Caldwell, to the effect that all tho rumors with regard to his resignation wore without foundation, anti that they wore sot afloat by his malicious enemies with a view to his injury. It will bo remembered that in tho case of this gentleman, ho had such an exalted opinion of official dignity that when ho came to make a statement before tho Committee on Privileges and Elections as to tho circumstances attending bis election, ho re fused to bo sworn, but simply submitted his statement on tho honor of a Senator. In denying tho rumors as to tho resignation of Caldwell on his peremptory request, your correspondent was under tho impression that this statement was also made on the honor of a Senator. How much that honor amounted to may bo inferred from ' tho fact that in less than twen ty-four hours of his assurance to tho contrary, Caldwell arose in tho Sonato' and tendered his resignation, with a brief ex planation. This branch of tho subject may bo dismissed. Tho causes which led to this resigna tion date back to tbo commencement of tho con sideration of Caldwell’s case by the Sonato. Since Pomeroy’s downfall that worthy has boon a potent element against Caldwell, in the hope that ho might succeed to tho vacancy. .Pomeroy hos worked quietly, and yet effectively to havo Caldwell expelled. Got. Osborn, of Kansas, has also boon hero for some time, and his influence Las boon decidedly against keeping Caldwell in tho Senate; but tho strongest element, and tho ono which has boon tbo most effective in Us influence upon Senators, has been the unanimity of tbo public press in demanding Caldwell’s expulsion. Carpenter, in a spirit of bravado, during the de livery of his speech at tbo outset of tho discus sion, sought to make light of tho element, and; shaking his flat at tho reporters’ gallery, said that it but represented tho clamors of tho howl ing mob. Still there are some sensitive Sena tors who are not so indifferent to public opinion, who did not dare to vote to retain this m&u in tho Senate. The two weeks’ debate. while it perhaps did nob obango a single individual con viction, nevertheless brought tbo weak point in this case so prominently before tho public that a largo number of tuo Senators did not dare to go homo and face their constituents with a record favorable to Caldwell’s retention. This fact was brought to Caldwell’s attention last evening, but ho would not believe it. After a canvass ibis morning, however, ho found that at least eight votes on which ho had relied were sure to go against him, oven on tho Horton resolution. Among those wore Jones, of Nevada; Patterson, of South Carolina; Ferry, of Michigan; Wright, of lowa, and Robertson, of South Caro lina. This information, which was obtained through personal conversation with those Sena tors, induced him to tender his resignation. It was feared in several quarters that Qov. Osborne might appoint Pomeroy to fill tho vacancy uutil tbo Legislature should assemble next fall, but tbo Govbrnor stated positively to-day that he would have nothing to do with Pomeroy, and that ho would not make any appointment until next December, and not then uutil ho had con sulted with tbo loading men of his Slate. It is suggested that tho Governor has an ambition to fill the vacancy himself. I cabby's case. The motion to reconsider tho vote by which Oolloctor Oasoy was confirmed, on Saturday, was called up In tho executive session of the Senate this afternoon, when another spicy debate took place, which lasted about an hour. Tho recon sideration was refused, however, by tho close majority of two votes. The Senate has elected to proceed with tho Clayton case tho present session. Tho final dis position. of the samo may bo easily predicted, both from tho report of the Committee and tho vote by which tho casowastakonupto-day. Load ing Senators are of the opinion that tho debate may last two or three days, and that Clayton will bo completely exonerated. An element that enters into the case is tho fact that Arkansas has a Democratic Legislature, and if Clayton is turned out bo will bo succeeded by a Democrat. It is anticipated that tho vote in this case will bo strictly partisan. Those who have carefully and impartially read the evidence say that tho only distinction botwoonCaldwoll and Clayton is, that while tho former paid money for votes, tho latter traded and bargained offices with the mem bers of tho Legislature for their suffrages. SOUTHERN APPOINTMENTS. Tho Admiuistration organ boro to-morrow will officially announce, first, that tho President intends to mako no appointment In tho South except from native Kopublicaus, and, second, that no changes will bo mado of present incum bents, cavo through iucompotoucy, or ineffi ciency, or maladministration of official duties. Special Dispatch to 27ic Chicago Tribune. ‘ CONGRESSIONAL EXTRA PAY. New York, March 24.—A Washington Bpeoial aays: Up to tho present time only ouo-half of tho members of Congress havo drawn tholr extra pay. The inconsistency exhibited by many representatives is well illustrated in tho case of throo Now Hampshire members, — Hibbard, 8011, and Parker—all Democrats. Those gentlemen voted against tho increase of salary and extra $5,000, and returned to their homos amidst tho election contest, involving tho question of their own return to tho Forty* third Congress, and considerable capital for themselves by proclaiming their opposition to “ tbo-incrcase-of-tho-salary " bill. As soon as tho election was over, Hibbard, who was not re turned to Congress, and Parker, who was, immediately wrote hero and drew tholr $5,000 extra pay. Mr. 8011, whoso election is still involved in doubt, has not applied for bis extra pay. As yet, not one of tho members of Congress from Connecticut during the last session has applied for tho extra. THE UNION PACIFIC SUIT. Another Washington special says: Attornoy- Oonoral Williams expects that Mr. Ferry, one of tho counsel employed to conduct tho suit against the Union Pacific Railroad, will arrive hero in a few days, when a consultation will take place be tween tbo counsel and Attornoy-Qonoral in rela tion to beginning the proceedings. It has not been decided yet whore tho suit shall he brought, but probably m either Now York or Boston. [To the Associated Frees.] TUEAHDnV HEOULATIONS. Washington, March 21.—Tho Secretary of tho Treasury has issued aiid directed a rigid en forcement of tho regulation which requires tho Treasurer, and all Assistant Treasurers and de positaries of the United Elates to refuse pay ment of oil ofllcial chocks of tho United States disbursing ollicors, if presented mpre than four months after their issue; and all Treasury drafts presented more than throo years after their is sue. All checks, payment on which has thus boon refused, will have to bo forwarded to tho Secretary of tho Treasury, the former for oxom iuatiou and verification of tho drawer’s ac counts, and tho latter for a statement of now accounts.

Vice-President Wilson this morning appointed Senators Sherman and Stevenson members of tbo Board of Visitors to West Point. Tbo Senate, to-day, at tbo instance of Senator West, reconsidered tbo vote confirming Col. Casey as Collector of Now Orleans, but, after debate, tho nomination was again confirmed. TUB NEW HALF-DOLLAR. Under tbo now Coinage law an important stop was taken toward tbo metric system. Tbo half-dollar will bo increased in value half a cent, adapting it to tbo Oriental trade.

Tbo Statistical Bureau of tbo Treasury Depart ment states that tbo ebaugo is necessary in order to adapt our coin to tbo basis of tbo grammo, and will bo nominal, not requiring recoining. TUB CLAYTON CASE. It is not supposed that the debate in iho Sen ate on tho Olayton case will bo of long duration, or that Clayton will bo disturbed in the posses sion of hiu seat. CENTRAL AMERICAN MISSION. The commissions of the present Ministers to the Control American States will expire on tho Ist of July, when, by law of Congress, tho mis sions will bo consolidated and only ono Minister assigned to oil those States. It is said to-night that probably Col. Williamson, of Shrovoport, Da., will receive tho appointment. oaldwell'b resignation. The resignation of Senator Caldwell was oc casioned by tho knowledge that many Bopubli can Senators would vote for Mr. Ferry's .resolu tion of expulsion, though it is not certain tho necessary two-thirds vote would have boon se cured therefor. It is behoved that a majority might have boon obtained. Caldwell did not dosiro to remain in tho Senate with oven a mi nority vote for expulsion, but preferred to re sign and rofor tho whole matter to tho people of Kansas. Caldwell will not return to Kansas for a week or ton days. CHARRED NOTES AND BONOS.

CASEY. CONOIIATULATOIIY. A BRUTAL ASSAULT. A Man Is Struck with Paralysis la a Fight. The Assailant a Special Policeman, Yesterday morning, at 10 o'clock, Michael Rosenborg, who, with his wifo and throe chil dren, occupies room C sat tho St. James Hotol, on South Clark street, near Polk, observed a largo volumo of smoko Issuing from room 40, occupied by a Mrs. Furnoy. Ho gavo an alarm of firo, and rushed into tbo room. Ho found that tbo smoko camo from somo moat in a fry ing-pan on tbo stove. Tbo alarm bo bad given created a panic in tbo bouso. and In tbo confusion some damage was done to the furniture. A man named J. W. Williams, tbo agent for tbo bouso. and who is a special policeman, became enraged at Rosenborg's hasty but sincere action, and be gan to abuso him for what ho bad dono. Rosen borg defended himself, when Williams, who is a man of groat power, took him by tbo throat with both bauds, and, after choking him for at loast five minutes, forced him down on tbo edgo of a tub, on bis back. Ho thou boat him most brutally, and bonded him ovor tbo edgo of tbo tub. This inhuman act so afTootcd Rosenberg’s spinal cord that bo became paralyzed. Ho coasod to move, and lay as ouo dead. When Mrs. Rosenborg cried,“ Oh, do not kill my husband," Williams replied with an oath aud struck at bor. Thinking ho had killed his victim, tho assall ant ran out of tho house, and Itosouhorg was carried into hio room. As ho lay upon his bod ho was a moat pitiable object. 110 was, apparently, a man in tho most per fect health, but could not movo a musclo of hla body, 110 could neither talk or swallow, and hie efforts to inform our reporter how too fight originated and his pare in tho affray wore aie troßbing. A strange feeling it muat bo, to bo robbed of tho powers of locomotion and of speech in a minute. A warrant for Williams’ arrest was executed by Roundsman Bartholin soon after the fight. Williams was taken before Justice Baa yon. At tho trial, Dr. Quirk, who examined Rosenborg, presented a sworn certifi cate, which stated that ho was completely para lyzed, and in a very critical condition. Williams was accordingly held without hail until next Fri day to await tho result of Rosenborg's injuries.

WALL STREET, Review of tlio Money* Gold* Rond* Stock* and X’roduco Markets* Special Dispatch to The Chicago Tribune. New York, March 21.—Tho week opened with an improved fooling in financial circles. Money was easier, and accessible to borrowers on coll at comparatively cheap rates.

Now York Central made an advance of 1 per cent, selling at 101%@102%, receiving strength from tho re ported placing of £2,000,000 sterling of tho Com pany’s bonds at London.

Chicago, Columbus & Indiana Central ad vanced from 39% to 89%, fell off to 89%, advanced to 40, and reacted to 89% in tho late dealings. Tho fulling off was on account of tho reported discovery of forged "puts" and “colls” in this stock. This subsequently proved to bo without foundation.

Tlio Stokes Case—Cotton-Brokers— lUrs. Foster—Stock Operators In Court—Xko Bull’s Hoad Hank—Tho llroolclyn mystery—Smuggling—Fan ny ißydo—Curious Suicide* Special Dispatch to Tho Chicago Tribune . New York, March 21.—Tho Custom-House au thorities to-day found $1,700 worth of sowing silk in a false-bottomed trunk belonging to one of tbo saloon-passengers of tbo Bboln. Tho owner drew a pocket-knife and attempted to cut bis own throat, but was prevented and locked up. His name withhold. About a month ago, a man giving tho name of Vaudoroin, and representing himself ns an escaped French Communist, arrived from Franco with 64,000 worth of paintings. Ho said they wore to bo used in decorating bis resi dence, and they wore passed at tho Custom- House. On Saturday one of Col. Whitoloy’s de tectives visited Yauderoin's place in Houston street, and tbo latter offered to sell tbo paint ings. To-day they were seized. Fanny Hyde, tbo pretty little Englishwoman who shot her seducer, George Watson, under pe culiarly aggravating circumstances in February. 1872, m Brooklyn, and who forfeited her bail after tbo failure of her first trial through tbo disagreement of tbo jury, was arrested in Wash ington, yesterday, at tho request of tho District- Attoruoy of Kings County. She arrived boro this afternoon, and was looked up to await another trial. She says she has always boon willing to return, hut was not notified that she was wanted. Bho has greatly improved in health since her release. There is no doubt that she will be acquitted. Tho last jury stood eleven for acquittal to one for manslaughter in the fourth degree. Tom Fields’ personal effects wore sold to-day by the Sheriff to satisfy execution. They brought nearly 620,000. His deserted wife ana children are sick, and suffering from want. Rosanna Smith, of 42 Thompson street, com mitted suicide last night by taking Paris-green. About a roar ago sho lost an eye, and tho chil dren of tho neighborhood have since boon in tho habit of calling her “Qlass-oyo" and ‘‘Cock eye.’* Being very sensitive, this preyed upon her mind and dfovo her crazy. Hor domestic rela tions wore happy. Greenwood Cemetery officials say that there is nothing In their charter to prohibit tbo burial of a murderer in tho cemetery, but there is such a clause in the deeds of sale of lots. This, how ever, was. not contemplated when tbo oomotery was Incorporated, but at tho timo of tho execu tion of John O. Colt, for tho murdor of Adams, at Chambers street and Broadway, thirty years ago, his friends desired to purchase a lot, and in tended to erect a splendid monument to his memory. Tho Company, considering that such ostentatious display over tho grave of a murderer was not .only highly improper but would give groat offense to tho owners of lots in the cemetery, refused to sell to tbo fami ly, and in all subsequent deeds the clause re ferred to was inserted. Tho father of Foster was one of tho original owners of a lot, and, therefore, his deed does not contain this clause: and tho Company cannot interfere, nor does it desire to do so in any similar case, if tho burial is quietly performed. Min. Foster, the wife of tbo unfortunate man, still continues In a very critical condition. Tho torriblo excitement sho underwent during the few days preceding tho execution, and the fear ful reaction which sot in after the sentence was carried out, wore more than human nature could boar, and Mrs. Foster’s frame gave way completely. Sho now lies in hor bouse, 802 East Twenty-fourth street, utterly prostrated. Attending physicians have but faint hopes of her recovery. The inquest in tho Goodrich murder ease ad journed to-night without doing anything. This is part of the programme of tho authorities to keep tho facts from tho police as much as possi ble. It is generally believed that tho detectives are holding hack for tho offer of a reward, the dead man’s relatives being rich. From all that can bo learned there seems now no doubt that Mr. Goodrich was murdered by his dis carded mistress. It seems that ho four years ago seduced a young woman of respectable connections, under promise of marriage. Bho boro him a child, and tho liason had been continued up to the time of bis death. Many persona havo soon hor entering and leav ing tho house in DoQraw street, and sitting on tho stoop beside him in tho summer. Recently Mr. Goodrich bus boon paying bis addresses to a young lady named Miss Clem, residing on Forty-ninth street. In this city, ana they wore engaged to bo married. Naturally ho endeavored to rid himself of tho other young woman, but made tho at tempt probauly without informing hor of his faithlessness. Sho discovered it, however, and charged him with it, and it is supposed he denied it. To satisfy her ho went through a mock mar riage performance, but she became aware of his deceit also, soon after, and violent quarrels en sued. At length goaded to madness she shot him with his own pistol when his back was turned, twice in tho loft side of tho head, and, as he swung around, onco in tho right side and once across tho forehead. Ho foil on the hearthstone. Thou realizing what sho had done, she washed tho blood off his face, arranged tho body carefully to give tho idea of suicide, took his watch ana money for present necessities, and Hod. It is certain Goodrich was killed on Friday morning. A light was soon in the second story about 12 o'clock on tho previous night, and tho suspected woman was in tho house tho previous afternoon. That sho has fled is also certain, because, although tho detectives know who sho is and havo boon searching for hor, sho has not yet boon arrested. A mysterious man. who is said to bo an important witness, was captured in this city this morning, and is now in custody in Brooklyn. In tho closet of a front room up stairs a now shirt was found, which had boon worn but little ana never washed. On tho collar-band bloody finger marks wore visible, and about an inch of tho cud on which tho collar-button had been sown was torn off. Tho other buttons hung merely by a thread. In tho drawers of tho bureau wore indications of tho recent occupancy of tho room by some female, and some medical apparatus found in tho wash-stand goes to confirm this be lief. The inquest was adjourned until Friday, owing to tho absence of material witnesses. A mysterious package in the Post-Office, ad dressed to A. Byron Indwell, is refused by tho Trust Company. Sir Edward Thornton is nego tiating with Mr. Croswoll to have it turned over to Nathaniel Jarvis, tho Receiver appointed in behalf of the Bank of England. Deputy-Sheriff Jarvis will at once attach itandoxamiuo it. Mc- Donnell baa engaged Messrs. Follows, Garvin, ami Brooks as counsel, and refuses to make any statement. {To the Associated Press.] New York, March 24.—Hr. Dos Bassos, counsel for Stokes, mudo an application to-day in tho Court of Oyer and Terminer for au order to ohow cause why tho judgment record in the case should not bo amended, on tho ground that it does not include material facts. Tho Court took the papers. At a mooting of tho Cotton Exchange to-dny tho Board of Managers wore requested to insert in tho by-laws a clause prohibiting tho .transac tion of any business .except between the hours of 10 a. m. and 4 p. m. Tho widow of Foster, hanged on Friday last, is utterly prostrated, and not expected to live. Azariah Boody has brought a suit against Daniel Drew, Kenyon, Cox A Co., and others, in tho Supreme Court. The plaintiff and most of tho defendants entered into a “pool" arrange ment in Toledo, Wabash A Western Railroad stock, in which the plaintiff was to take 12.600 shares with a margin beyond that number. Ken yon, Cox A Co. wore tho brokers for the “pool." At the close of tho “ pool" tho brokers reported 186,000 shares on hand, and the ooat $0,707,010, and called on the plaintiff to take up 15,000 shares on that basis.

These defendants demurred to tbo complaint, and a motion by tbo plaintiff for judgment on their demurrer, as frivolous, was argued to-day before Justice rancher, who has reserved his decision. The depositors of tbo Hull’s Hoad Bank mot to-day to try and arrange matters between tbo stockholders and depositors, so that the former would make good tbo deficiency, and the latter still continue to do business with the bank. A committee of five was appointed to confer with tbo stockholders on the subject. Willot, the Cashier, made a statement, showing the de ficiency to bo $267,000. Marshal Fisko has deputized Charles A. Moigga, Bank Examiner of this district, to take charge of the property. Two Brooklyn detectives wore In this city to-day, and returned to Brooklyn with a Now York man, who had business relations with Charles Goodrich, murdered there a few nights ago. The Corouor, District Attorney, Detec tives, and tho stranger had several consultations during the day. The officials decline to make public tho result of tbo consultations, or to say if tho stranger is under arrest.

Already the contemplated aotion has had its effect upon the building interest, and tho builders refuse to take extensive contracts. They havo, however, demanded ton hours as a day’s work, and if their demand Is not complied with they will sus pend operations. In Brooklyn the carpen ters havo notified their employers that after tho 7th of April they will demand $3.60 for a day of eight hours.
