THE LAW COURTS. Hearing on the Petitions and Answers in tho Bankruptcy Proceedings Against the Q. ff. Telegraph Company. Mr. D. A. Gage, Deputy Sheriff Ayers, Superintendent Bliss, and Secretary Bond Give Evidence. The Answer of the Defendants in the Sny Island Trouble—Tho Other Side. A. Trial of ConsUlernMo Interest ‘ to Landlords and Tenants. • Criminal Court News, Bankruptcy Mat ters, Notes of Interest, and Now Suits. The hearing of the petition for adjudication of the Groat Western Telegraph Company, and answer thereto, came up before Judge Blodgett, yesterday. Tho examination of witnesses took up tho whole of tho day, ami was continued over till this morning. The first witness examined was Mr. Ayer, of Chicago, who affirmed that ho holds In his possession tho writs of execution in favor of Cook County Natioualßauk against the Great Western Telegraph Company. They woro received by him at 2.30 p. m. on the 14th Dec. last, and tho •amounts-oro $4,G04.0G, $1,480.10, 0nd5781.50, iu which amounts coats are included. Tho date of these executions is thol3tU 800. last. David A. Gage, lato Prossdont of tho Gompa-. tiy, testified that tho Company was insolvent at the time of tho execution. Part of tho notes wore given la renewal of other notes previously discounted by tho bank. All tho notes upon which judgment bad boon obtained were such renewals. Ho wished to havo tho Commercial Kaiional Bank tho Urst creditor, and as thonotos wore indorsed by himself ho took a natural in terest in their ultimate fato. In cross-examina tion, ho stated that tho notes wore given to Solah Reeve, who was building the lino for tho Com pany, aud who drew tho funds as tho work pro gressed, and who put iu his bid subsequently. Tho balance was generally in Reeve’s favor. Witness was not conversant with tho affairs of tho Company, but considered that in August, 1872, tho Company, was insolvent, and had its creditors presented claims and pressed for pay ment, it would not havo boou able tel comply. At that timo tho Company had disbursed to Bolah Reeve for tho building of linos between $200,000 aud $300,000, which lines wore free of oncum bhinco. Tho work waa douo at tho ralo of SBOO pbr mile. Tho unpaid subscriptions footed up between SBOO,OOO and $-100,000. Reliabilities wore between $50,000 and SOO,OOO, which amount doosuot include a claim of Bolah Roove in tho vicinity of $200,000, for which ho holds tho Com pany's certificates, but which tho now Board con tests. This indebtedness is made up of tho notes held by the bank and by John C. Hilton, aud sundry Witness first held tho Hiltcn notes, having given them to Hilton in August last. Witness received them iu consideration of money advanced to Roovo and used iu building the lino. Mr. G. M. Cray and himself in Juno Inst, as Executive Coujpihtee, mot aud authorized tho making, by Qua, tho Treasurer of tho Company, of prunus •jnorv notorf given witness. Otis, tho Treasurer, Vail, ho considered, tho power to make such notes for tho Company. Tho duties of Assistant Secretary and Treasurer were performed by Na than Rcovc, brother of Soiah, tho contractor. WithSJfes stated that in tho transactions between himself and Reeve ho never received .a ceut of profit, and that anyone who stated otherwise did not 101 l the truth. ‘ After recess, Mr. Bliss, Inspector atild Superin tendent of the Company, states that during (ho 1872 his salary varied from SI,BOO. to > $2,0U0. At present his salary 1b .‘*B,ooo. The Company are at -present paying their Secretary aud Gou ©rul Collector :v3,0C0 porunmnu, uad their Treas urer SI,OOO per anmun. The President gets no fculary, and iho Committee receives a per diem allowance.- The Company was indebted to. him,, ut the time the new .hoard of- management ,wao formed, to tho amount of S7OO or tdOO. which ho had not since received in toto. Ho thought the lino within Cook Comity could bo worked at a profit, hut was not- of great .com mercial value. Tho moat valuable part of the lino was that which runs between Chicago aud Milwaukee. The most valuable portion within iho Bute of Illinois was that between Chicago ami Princeton. Some rovonuo has accrued from tho business between Chicago and Evanston, Is acquainted with Mr, McDonald and Sir. Whit comb, but has no agreement with them. They have stated to him that they would jnoko their money out of tho lino. Considers that tho Illi nois lines of tho Company, if isolated from out side connection, would bo wore valuable than outbid, linos cut off. from them iu this State, Explu.ucd that tho apparent increase of salaries was not so great as it appeared, as. the former Secretary, with a nominal salary, had an assistant at $3,000 per annum, whlchho'aup- POBod tho Company paid. Thinks tho Company has about 800 miles of lino within tho State of Illinois. Tho average duration of.'telegraph lines of tho old stylo was from 18 to 20' years, but a modern lino would prove more durable. Tho annual cost of repairs amounted to about 10 or 15 per cent. Tho Company pays a largo .commission to Messrs. Bond aud Ayres, amount ing to S3OO a mouth each. Tho largest monthly “earnings of tho Uuo within his memory wore ■53,000. Tho average for tho last throe months ,was $1,200 or thereabouts, part of which wore duo to othor companies. The lowest gross re ceipts wore •between SBOO and 8000. ' ' Mr. Bond, tho present Secretary of tho Com pany, testified taut last summer ho was om .ployed as Collecting Agent, and collected $15,« 1)00 in previous stock subscriptions, and account ed for it to Mr. Beove, acting Asulstaut Treas urer. Part of tho amount was paid to Messrs. McDunnough and Whitcomb. There are about $300,000 to $-100,000 stock subscriptions not paid up. Mr. M. Ayres testified that ho was employed in 1872 in making collections from stockholders. During tho entire year, from October, 1871, until October, 1872, ho collected $28,000. Mr. Gurwiu, Uunoriutoudeut of tho Pacified; Atlantic Telegraph Company, testified that ho considered tho lino worth about 8200 a mile, SIOO of this representing tho value of tho plant, tho balance the value of tbo franchise. It coot him $1,500 to obtain iu Pennsylvania a charter for a telegraph company. Neither counsel having further testimony to bring forward, His Honor announced that ho would hear tho arguments to-day.

Tho plaintiff hugs Keeler for ,rout of •rooms for one year expiring May 1.1871. Keeler replies that tho agreement was not a legally ex ecuted document, ami that tho plaintiff did not carry out bin contract with him, and ho was thereby''obliged, contrary to his inclination, to leave the promises, namely, an agreement that Morrison should c\orfr tho house of gamblers and harlots, whoroas’U was proved in evidence that both occupied rooms tiioro, and rendered existence there by a respectable person -wholly impossible.

At tho mooting of the Board of Health, yester day afternoon, tho weekly mortality report was submitted by Dr. Bauch, showing a total of 125 deaths, besides one premature birth aud eight still-births. There was a decrease of twenty-five deaths compared with the preceding week. There wore eight deaths by small-pox, an increase of four over tho preceding week, while there was a Blight decrease in tho number of infected houses reported. A table is given, showing th'o mortal ity by small-pox in the twelve principal cities of the United States during tho past three years, and a comparison establishes tho fact that, with tho exception of Now York and San Francisco, tho death rate by this disease has boon loss in Chi cago than iu any othor city. The Health Officer's report showed that 500 notices had boon served, 885 nuisances abated, end i. quarters of beef, 2 calves, and 18 carcasses of mutton condemned. Mr. Reynolds stated that there• wore com ' plaints made as to tho lusido workings of tho Bmall-Pox Hospital, and on motion tho Health Officer was instructed to examine into tho mat ter, and report at tho next mooting of the Board. On tho subject of the contract for scavenger work, Corporation Counsel Tuloy gave his opin ion that tho Board had a right to reconsider and rescind its action in awarding the contract to Cunningham A Cray, and then advertise for now proposals. He recommended that tho Board re quire a bond to bo furnished with each bid. , Dr. Bauch said it had never been tho practise of the Board to require a bond. Mayor Modill said a bond was required by the Board of Public Works, and should bo in this case. On motion of Dr. Johnson, all bids woro re jected, and the Secretary was Instructed to ad vertise anew for proposals, to do received up to 2 o'clock p. in. on Monday, April 7, and a bond iu tho sura of £2OO to accompany each bid. VOLUNTARY REDUCTION OF WAGES. It wau announced in Tins Twjidnk, itto other day, that a number of ship-oarpontorß and calk ers who did not belong to ..the Union had re solved to strike for 64 a day. ' They woro rocoly-' ing £3:50. The . Union did not countenance the strike, and, its members continuing to work at tho old rates, U Droved a failure. Even £3.50 a day is n larger mim by- half a dollar Ulan* la received by momborn of tho'craft ftt any other lake port. In conno qtionco, vobbolb owned in Chicago have boon Bolit to Milwaukee, Toledo, Cleveland, and Buf fftlo! ■to b'o repaired, and tho ohip-oar pontora, and calkora of thla city , have boon iinnblo to obtain “full time 11 during the Reason. They have at Inst realised that It is useless to hope for an Increase of wftgoo at other ports, and accordingly, at a coat mooting of the Union, It was decided to roduco tho por diem to $3 as soon ns tho vessels now iu tho yarclH hnvo sailed. By this notion, which' is certainly commendable, tho men can secure almost permanent work,' and snvo a larger sum during the season than was possible at $8.30 a day. Chicago vessels will hereafter bo made seaworthy at homo. . 8 8.814.10 “ACROSS THE CONTINENT.” JTo the Editor rtf Tho Chicago JVj'&iouj Sin: It Is to bo hoped that your article of yesterday will wake up tho Pacific Railroad Hues . and induce thorn to adopt a moro liberal tariff for tourists,, if not for pnaaougora generally. I . boliovo that, by doing so, they would And It pdy % as tho Continental linos have, by making liberal concosalona to Messrs. Cook & 00., tbo groat or-* gauizors of tho excursion-system. Thcao con cessions amount to from 15 to 45 por cent. ,As you remark, they (the Pacific Railroad ’dompaiuos) actually drlvo away tho intending native tourists to tho Continent; but this is not tho worst of it—they deter tho intending Brit ish and other tourists,from coming to this coun try to visit the splendid and wonderful; scenery of the West. I boliovo that, with or without tho Inducement hold out by tho much smaller ex pense, tho native American would, as' a rule,' give the preference, in his first trip, to tho Old '‘World, for tbo sako of seeing tho country, and perhaps location of his forefathers, as well as seeing places of historical renown, which will iucludo moat of tho cities and towns in the Old World; also, palaces, ca thedrals, art-galleries, and their contents, which bo cauoot see iu this country. Besides thrfso, • there is some beautiful Hdonory in England;'lre land,and Scotland, although on n smaller scale than tho American, jind much of this has old his torical reminiscences, or has boon immortalized iu poetry, or prose. Tho samp on tho Continent. This inducement applies also to most of tho naturalized Americans,-who have not had tho moans or opportunity of traveling before coming to tbia country. Perhaps it is as well this preference should exist, as it educates and expands tho mind, and satisfies a craving. At tbo same time. I boliovo it prepares tho tourist for moro thoroughly enjoying tho graud scenes of Nature in Ills own country, as, judging from my - own experience, after having soon nil that was to bo soon in large cities, and indulged in choir scones of excitement and dissi pation, I have always felt a relief and pleasure in falling hack on tho scones of nature, over lovely, over beautiful, over changing, and havo felt a keen, pure souse of enjoyment never real ized in largo cities, In holding sweet converse with Nature, and in “looking up from Nature to Nature’s God." ' 1 havo digressed a little'. But, when the in tending tourists (many of whom havo onlya limited amount to spend) look at tho question of expense, even if they had had any doubt iu tbelr minds before, this settles tho matter. You put down tho oxpeuso, from Now York, of visiting tho Ear West, at $359, exclusive of Pullman cars, which, ou this trip, become a necessity, and form a material item in tbo expense, and will make tho cost atloast S4OO, exclusive of expense ■ of living ou tho route. You also put down tho expense of n Continen tal tour, including a largo number of cities, from the same starting point, Now York, and taking advantage of Cook’s excursion, at $286, both currency. This would leave tho question of expense iu this position: To California, Including the principal objects • of interest SIOO.OO To Europe, Including many of tbo Important cities $280.00 Differeuco in favor of the European tour $114.00 Now, taking tbo question of living on the route into consideration, it makes tho difference still greater, say for a two months trip: Now York to San Francisco, expenses 7 days cn route, nts3.oo *. $2J.00 Ditto, return 21.00 Forty-six day's hotel expenses at $4,00......... 184.00 • Total <5220.00 Kow York to Glapgow or Liverpool aml back, • 20 flnyp, fret*, expouucs cu route, Uihlug into consideration that expense In (raveling by rail for meals Is email, as also expense on tbo continent, 40 days ut $2.00,—5100 gold or iu currency 115,00 In favor of European lour These are. of course, the actual expenses, irre spective of “ tips” to steward, servants, otc., aud all other extras. Tho actual saving iu tho una voidable expenses is thus, off tho trip of CO days, $225.00 currency. I find Messrs. Cook «k Co. are making at? . rangemonts to carry out their system of excur sions in this country on tho same.plan as the British and European, and I wish thorn every success.. At present, wo have to deal with things as they arc. I find I can go from Now York to tho Vienna Exposition, by a flint-class steamer of tho An chor lino, for SIBO gold,—say 8207 carrouoy, expenses as above for two months, currency, $115; total, 8322. Now everybody is not bound to spend two months; any less time will roduco expenses .pro rata. Tho Anchor lino provides first-class accommo dations at the abovo rates, and includes second .class railroad carriages in England or on tbo Con tinent. These, judging from a long experience, are preferable to first-class in summer particu larly. An additional advantage in traveling by this (tbo Anchor) line iu: That tho tourist has tho advantage of seeing tho Scottish scenery and towns, and has tho op portunity of stopping on route, either going or returning, at tho following places; Starting from* Now York—Glasgow, Liver pool, London, Dieppe, Boueu, Paris, Strasbourg, Ulm, Salzburg, Vienna. ' --Return via Lindau, Zurich, Basle, Belfort, ,Pana, London, Manchester, Glasgow. Now York. Tho abovo compares very favorably with tho Messrs. Cook’s route. Tho rush of travelers this season is so groat that most of the steamers are filled up in advance, aud .any one intending to travel this season should look lively. At Now York, Messrs. Cook’s hotel-tickets can bo .ob tained, which will save expense on tho Conti nent. If you, Mr. Editor, will throw in your influ ence and induce tho railroad companies to moot Messrs. Cook in carrying out thoir plan of ex cursions, I believe wo shall have this country overrun by British and othor European tourists, to tho groat advantage of everybody. As a na tional question, it is uno of tbo greatest impor tance. An Old Traveler. Vlio Sphere of Woman Enlarged* 1 From the Sunburn {Pa.)

So insidious arc tho first approaches of consumption that thousands remain unconscious of its presence un it has brought them to the very vorgo of tho grave. An Immediate resort to Dr. D. Jayne’s Expectorant, upon tho first appearance of cough, pain, or soreness of tho throat or chost, would very generally preclude a fatal result, or, In cane tho symptoms indicate tho presence of iatent consumption, would tend to subdue the vio lence of the disease, and thus materially assist In pro longing tho life of tuo patient.

One of tho Accomplished Arttat* of JencHt museum rompluiiin to (ho mayor—A Wild Jtlnn who Caiihot Snlmlnt on Air and Promise*. One of tho most remarkable looking human beings that ovor had existence complained to tho Mayor yesterday, that ho had boon swindled by tho proprietors of. Jones’ Museum, a traveling show of tho horrible order, how located ot No. 45 West Randolph street. It appears that while tlio M museum " was being urged through tho neighboring Stato of Indiana, tho managers dis covered tho complainant, Frederick Ilottisoh, at Tolloston. 110 resembled a gorilla so much ‘that they conceived tho Idea of on gaging him to personate a wild man <in - their entertainment. Tho .seductive offer of $25 a month, and board was thrown out as a baltior Fred, to nibble at, and ho gulpodit Mown without wasting time in consideration, and became a member, of tho company, consisting of an oboso tfomnn," a man so thin ns to bo al most Invisible nt a side view, a sword-swallower,' a learned pig with. a propensity for shorticards, a monkey, a fangloss snako,.and a hand-organ.

Ho wns a groat card for tho management. Every person who saw him. firmly believed that his - Xrandfaihor, at .. least, was , a duo .old .frican gorilla, who might hJWo mot > Mungo .Park in, hia solitary wandoringe. After Indiana hod boon thorough ly canvassed, tho museum proprietors decided to . visit Chicago, and take Fred with them.. They , arrived hero a few days ago, and ovor since tho wild man”, has,boon a source of wonder to : those who have soon him.

They have given him no money, and have never oven asked him if a crust of broad would do him good. Natural ly enough, he complains to tho .Mayor > that ho Cannot live long under such disadvantageous circumstances. Ho cannot be a docent wild man on an empty stomach. Every time ho comes on tho stage ho fools moro like going to sleep than bellowing around and malting a Tool of himself for nothing a week. All ho wants tho Mayor to do is to got some monoy for him from tho mu seum men, His Honor told him ho would see what could' bo done. ' Seriously speaking, Hot tisch ls a horrible-looking person.

Tho newly wedded pair loft for tho East last evening, will sail for Europe early in April to bo absent four months, to bo followed throughout their jour ney by the warm wishes of a'multitude of friends. OAKLAND. , Tho nuptials of Bov. Bon E. S. Ely, pastor of tho Graco Presbyterian Church, Cottage Grove, and Miss Moore, and estimable young lady of his congregation, wore celebrated lose evening at tho Oakland Congregational Church, in tho presence of a very largo number of in vited guests. The happy couplo loft imme diately on an Eastern tour YESTERDAY'S SNOW-STORM. It would bo a useless waste of spaco and roportorial energy to chronicle, in so many dry, uninteresting paragraphs, tho hours, minutes, and.seconds of delay which every railroad-train coming to and going from ■ tho city experienced yesterday, owing to tho sudden and violent snow storm. Budko it to say that they wore all pretty well behind time, and that the tracks of both steam and horse railroad linos are several inches, and in some places several foot, below tho sur face of tho snow-fall. 'What’s tho uso of writing about snow-storms, anyhow ? They aro neither now or remarkable in this section of country. Whoa you read tho story of one, you road the story of all that occurred before, and all that aro likely to occur after. Each suc ceeding one is “ tho worst of tho season,” and a ** source of tho utmost discomfort to those whoso business brings them out of doors.” Tho fact that (l tho snow was live feet deep in a drift at tho comer of Madison and Dearborn streets," or that Jones' collar was full of it. or that it was impossible to got into Smith’s store on account of it, does not interest tho-general public ono way or tho other. It’s nothing but nowspapor cant, and Tun Trirune proposes to h&vo no moro of it. Therefore, wo will summarize by saying tbat the storm was quite severe; that considerable snow foil; tbat the railroad compa nies aro doubtless greatly annoyed at it; that they are not moro annoyed than pedestrians, and that everybody will recover his or her usual se renity and good, temper to-morrow or next day, and perhaps bo out in a now spring overcoat, or duck of a bonnet. slll.OO DISTINGUISHED VISITORS. Tho members of tho now Board of Railroad and Warehouse Commission, consisting of H. D. Cook, of MoLoan County, D. A. Brown, of

Sangamon County, and. John A. Pierson, of Madison County, reached this city on Monday evening. At 12 o'clock yesterday they visited the Chamber of Commerce, and woro received by President Culver aud Secretary Randolph. It was expected that they would be introduced to . the Board from tho platform, and mtdeo known what thoy intended doing, in formal speeches, but tho Commissioners, being modest, thoy de clined tho invitation, to mako themselves con spicuous, aud henco tho moro prominent mem bers of tlio Board of Trado woro brought up by tho President aud Secretary aud individually introduced. Their object in coming to this city was not to express their views, hut to soouro information relative to tho inspection of grain and other matters connected with tho warehouse business. Tho books of tho inspec tion and registration departments woro exam ined by them at half-past 8 o'clock, and half an hour afterward thoy mot and conversed with tho Assistant Inspectors at their office, No. 150 West Washington street. Tho Commissioners will remain in Chicago until Thursday ovouiug, and will consult with commission men, bankers, and others interested ia warehouses, m order to be come acquainted with tho business, that thoy may act undorstandingly when thoy return to Bpriugilold. , . , The Rloon*lSoax« From the OoUlen Age. Tears ago tho, Now York Sun—not then so highly moral a journal as It has since hocomo — trmeu with scionco and tho truth by publishing a famous essay purporting to describe what Sir John llorsoholl had discovered iu tho moon— namely, men, animals, and a life like that on our own planet. The ingenious Action was soon ex ploded, * and .became popularly known os “ The Moon-Hoax.” Its authorship was credit ed to Prof. Richard Adams Lacko, who died a few years ago. Shortly after Mr. Locke’s death a neat little engraving of his Intellectual face, with a fac-simile of his autograph, was published, and copies distributed among tho members of tho Frees, as a memorial of Hie Professor's succoas ul satire. Bo far as wo know, the authorship' was never disputed while Locke lived. Rut now that ho is mouldering away iu tho grave, Frof. LeMorgau, in a published book called “ Budget of Paradoxes,” states that “Tho Moon Hoax” was written by M. Nicollet, a French savant employed by tho United States Government m tho solentiAo exploration of,’ tho West. Frof. DoMorgutrs testi mony—lf It can bo called such—is as follows: “There is no doubt that It—tho Moon Hoax— , was produced iu tho Uultod Elates by M.

THE CITY IN BRIEF. ’ A meeting of tho Council Committee on Streets and Alloys, West Division, will behold this after noon, at the City Clerk’s oflloo, to- discuss some Railroad questions. ■ ; ( ; Tho Board of Pubilo Works yesterday opened several bids for tho construction of engine houses on Chicago avenue and Twelfth street'.

I i Tho Common Council Committee on Harbor and Bridges will moot in tho City Clerk’s oflico, tills afternoon, to talkovora now bridge at Four teenth street and tho widening of the rivor at Twelfth street. . Owing to tho severe, storm, tho laying of the cornor-atono of tho now St. Paul’s Church has been postponed until Saturday, otll o’clock m tho forenoon. The Board of Police Commissioners yesterday opened bids for 1,500 foot of rubber hose, with ■ couplings, and will make public announcement of the successful applicant for tho contract in a few days. < The lectures to tho astronomical class of tho West Side Christian Union will bo Illustrated tills evening by a scries of very flue “ lantern” , views, representing tho heavenly bodies in mo tion. - .

' John Wolpolo, whoso gambling-houso wafl'pnll ed on Thursday night, was fined $lO by Justico Banyan, yesterday morning. Walpole did nob prosont his replevin writ, the property captured having been destroyed. Yesterday the Board of Police appointed Mi chael McCarthy os special policeman at the North Branch terminus of the Chicago & Pacific Bail road. and A. B. Bushnoll: as, special policeman for the Chamber of Commerce Building. ! The loss by Are at F. M. Halo's packing-house, yesterday morning, was $3,000, 'Dio insurance is as follows: Homo, California, 82,000; North- Western National, of Milwaukee, sl.soo;,Hoff man, Now York, $1,500; total, $5,000. .The ori gin of the fire Is unknown. ; A pockotbook ■ was found on West Madison slsoot, by Officer Brown, yesterday morning, which contained a small amount of money ana some papers. It is in the possession •of Ser geant Ellis, at the Central Station, whore the owner can have It by proving his titlo. Capt. Gund, of the Third Procinot, arrested a boy, at an early hour yesterday morning, who had in his possession a valuable copper kettle. It is behoved that the boy has no title to the kottlo which ho could sustain in a court of law. If the owner will call for It ho con have it. Charles fleymeyer, in whoso saloon on South Halstod street young Goetz was murdered a few days ago, Was fined $25 by Justico Banyon, yesterday, for selling liquor without a license. It appears that the man’s first Uce’nSo was re voked, and that ho subsequently procured •another under an assumed name, and started in business a few doors from bis old placo. About 6 o'clock on Monday evening, a little girl named Katie Hewitt, whoso parents reside on Crossing street, near tho Northwestern Bail . road, was ran over on Elston avenue, near tho Bloomiugdalo road, by a butcher's wagon. The driver drove off at a furious speed when ho saw tho little girl prostrate on tho ground. Bho was removed io her homo. Tho attending physician, Dr. Parks, thinks Bho will recover, although seriously hurt internally. At 2 o'clock to-mofrow afternoon. Aldermen Warren,. Bichardson, Scbailnor, . Jlooro, and Quirk, composing tho Special Committee ap pointed by tho Common Council to examine public buildings, will visit all tho principal thea tres in the city for tho purpose of examining thoir heating arrangements and tho facilities for escape in case of flro. Tho city authorities aro rather bohind-hand in this matter. Some months ago Tub Tribune published a iong article show ing tho relative merits of every theatre in tho city in tho matter of safotyfrom flro, which it would bo well for tho Special Committee to road over again. The man Rosenborg, who was paralyzed in a light in tho St. James Hotel, on Clark street, on Monday morning, Is getting bettor. Ho has oaten no food since receiving his injuries, but tbo power of speech has returned, and ho can move ono arm. Dr. Quirk pronounces him out of danger. It is said by Williams’ friends that ho did not choko or beat Rosenborg, but only pushed him, causing him to fall upon tho edge of a tub.. .Tho face of tho injured mnu is swollen aud bruised, aud does not sustain this statement.' It is not probable tbat an official investigation of tho affairs of tho Relief and Aid Society will bo made by tbo Common Council. The action of that body on Mouday night, in refusing - to ap propriate money to defray tho necessary, ex penses of tho Special Committee, has had the effect of causing tho members thereof to loso all interest in tho matter. Had tho Council act ed differently, a mooting of tho Committee would havo noon held yesterday, at which ar rangements would have boon made for conduct ing tho examination of the Society’s hooks and papers in a proper manuor. Under the circum stances, however, tho members do not fool dis posed to givo the subject any further attention. Tlio lEalmgas Hat. From tho New York H orW.' The story of how tho Rabagas hat, now; so fashionable in Paris, was invented Is amoet curi ous ono. For along time It was a mystery, but, .tbo narrativo of its origin has recently boon told. As it may in time work its way to our sido of tbo I ocean, it will probably interest thoso who, may ohanco to wear it to know that 1 that notorious croaturo, Cora Pearl, was tho inVoutor of tho chapeau. Miss Pearl, as tho story nms, attended a brilliant supper at tho Molson Dorco after witnessing M. Sar dou’e play of “ Rabagas." While at tho table the whim seized her to manufacture a now sort of hat. whioh she predicted would soon become the fashion. Carrying out her caprice, she took a bat of ono of tuo gentlemen present, out the rim off with a table-knife, aud requested the pwnor of tho hat to crush it m with his Use with all tho forco bo could givo the blow. This was done, aud tho result was a nondescript head covering, round in shape, and with a most uproarious turn. She then colled for a green veil aud a ribbon, aud declared that sho would wear that hat for tho rest of tho season in tbo Champs Elysoos and elsewhere. Sho was as good as her word, and, after a while, a foamouablo modiste took up tho idea, and ladies who neither knew nor carod whence the hat originated adopted tho fashion as an exquisite novelty. This eccentric bonnet is not only curious in shapo, but it is worn curiously. It is covered with a veil, and Is placed on tho b&ok of tho head, as if it woro going to fall at ©very moment. —Springfield, Mass., appropriates SIOO,OOO for tho expenses of Us Fire Department tho ensuing year.
