Important Decision by tlio Supremo Court of the United States. Postmaster General Creswell to Make a Tour of Postal Inspection. The Pacific Railroads and the Govern' ment to Appeal to the Su | prepje Court. Special Dispatch to The Chicago Tribune, THE TREASURY POLICY. Washington, D. 0. March 01.—Tho now Sec retary of tho Treasury, Judge Richardson, gave the first intimation of what bis policy with re gard to the aalo of gold and tho purchase of bonds Is to bp, yesterday, when ho issued his programme for tlio month of April. His prede cessor, Senator Boutwoll, was in the habit of making his purchase of bonds about equal to his sales of gold. It Is understood, however, that a necessity exists for this polioy, which was un . known under OoutwoU’s Administration, or at least it had no existence until Inst fall. At (hat time a certain amount of $44,000,000 of ourrouoy reserve was put in circulation. It has never boon entirely replaced. Tho action of Congress at its last session, though not mandatory on this question, was sufficiently explicit to indi cate that further drafts upon tho reserve would provoko positive legislation. According to tho last public debt statement, there was about > $2,670,000 of this reserve still out. It is under stood that the purpose of Secretary Richardson is to replace this sum at the earliest time possi ble. To do so, ho will, of couteo, bo compelled to. sell os much gold as ho can spare to help moot tho current expenses of tho Govern mout, and purchase a loss amount of bonds. This polioy will necessarily load to contraction, but that appears to bo tho polioy for the present, at least of tho Administration. Some persons will, perhaps, bo surprised to loam that during 1 the last year contraction has boon carried on by tho Treasury Department to tho extent of $3,000,000. This has boon done mainly by tho redemption of tho 8 per cent certificates, and through tho operation of the law redistrib uting tho National Bank Currency. It is tho popular impression that the action of the boorotary of tho Treasury has a marked effect upon tho monetary interests of tho coun try. Judge Richardson is of. tho opinion that it is not his orders to buy bonds or sell gold that convulse Wall street, but tho condition of tho money market in Europe and tho amount of im ports. THE PACIFIC n.VILBOADB. Tbo amount of money which will ho withheld , from the Pacific Railroad Companies, in accord ance with the recent act of Congress, will reach from $1,000,000 ,to $1,C00,000 annually. This is on the transportation account. It is tho purpose of the companies interested to immediately submit tho question of tho right of tho Government to withhold tills money to tho Courts, and they will push it with as little delay as possible. They hope to have a decision', from tho Supremo Court of tho United States In' loss than a year. The officers of • tho • Company noom confident that tho action of Congress will not bo sustained by tho Supremo Court. Tho Secretary of tho Treasury is of a different opin ion. At all oveuts till there is a decision by tho Supreme Court tho transportation account will bo suspended. DOBELL AND UDBTEED. It is mentioned boro, iu connection with tho administration of tliose eminent jurists, Dared, of Louisiana, and Dustood, of Alabama, that iu all tho proceedings in bankruptcy which have been had iu their respective courts, not one cent of dividends has ever yet been made to creditors. It is suggested that tho contingent fund of those courts must be enormous. SUPREME COURT DECISIONS. In tho case of Olcuttvs. tho Fond dn Lao Com missioners, which came up on appeal from tho United States Court in Wisconsin, tho Supremo Court decided to-day in favor of the Commis sioners. In this case tho plaintiff resisted the payment of toxos, assessed by reason of a county subscription to a railroad. Tho ground taken was that tho Legislature of that State, in passing an act to authorize this sub scription, violated the clause of tho constitution which provides that private property shall only bo taken for public uses. Tho Court hold that a railroad was a public uso. In tho use of tho above clause ; that the act of the Legislature was con stitutional, and that tho taxes were legally as* aoßßod. In tho State of Kansas against tho Kansas Pa cific Railroad, imposing taxes on tho land grant of tho latter corporation, tho Court Hold that the State had no right to make snob assessment. Tho decision was based on tho restrictions m tho act of Congress, making tho grant of laud, whereby the road was liable to perform several conditions precedent before tho legal title would rest. [To the Associated Press.] SUPREME COURT DECISIONS. Washington, March 31.— 1n tho caso of tho City of Now Orleans against Myra Clarko Gaines, from tho Circuit Court of Louisiana, tho appeal sought to re verse tho decree of the Court below in favor of Mrs. Gaines for $125,200 as rent and profits from lands belonging to hor, which had been in tho possession and uso of tho city. Mrs. Gaines brought her action to recover possession under tho former decision of this Court in her favor ou tho general question of hor rights. Tho report of the Master to whom tho caso was referred was in her favor, and the Court entered a decree thereupon accordingly. Tho Court directs- the afllrmanco of the decree, disallowing the excep tions thereto. No. 108. Barrett v. Barney ot al. This was an action brought by Barrett to recover of Wells, Fargo & Co.’s Exproeo Company damages al leged to ha ro boon clone to tho building in which their office in San Francisco is located, by tho explosion of nitro-glycorino, which caused so much consternation a fow years ago. The question was whether, as common carriers, they were liable for having in their possession tho fa tal box, and consequently for damages done by the explosion to other portions of tno building than tho rooms occupied by them. The decision below was in their favor, and it is hero affirm od. Tho Court say that if tho Ex press carriers aro chargeable with notice of tho contents of packages carried by thorn, they must have tho right to rofuso to recolvo packages, unless thoir contents aro known. It would oo unreasonable to roqulro thorn in that caso to accept as conclusive iu ovory instance tho information givon by tho ownor. U’hoy must bo at liberty whonovor in doubt to oxaot tho right of inspection of contents as a condition of carriage, but the dootrino, which would load to snob a course of business, would causa groat incon venience and seldom accomplish any good. For tunately, tho law is not so unreasonable, and does not enforce such a dootrino, and tho conclu sion is that tho carrier is not chargeable with tho notice of tho contents of packages, and should not ho hold liable for an act douo without his fault. No. 163. Btftto of South Carolina, ox rol. Wag nor agaiuat tho Treasurer of Charleston County. Tho question in this case was. whether tho tax olllcor was bound to accept bills of tho Bank of South Carolina In payment of taxon, tho alloca tion being that, by its charter, bllla of tho bunk wore to bo receivable for all duou to tho State. Tho County Treasurer answered that tho bills woro issued in 1861. and were in aid of tho re bellion, and wore, therefore, not a legal tender * and secondly, that tho clause of tho charter un der which payment had boon tendered had boon repealed. Tho first question was found by tho jury In favor of the bank, but the Court hold that tho olauso requiring the State to receive bills for taxes was substantially repealed. This ruling is sustained hero, and judgment is affirmed. PEUBONAL. Tho President, with Mrs. Grant, Miss Nollio CHICAGO, TUESDAY, APRIL 1, 1873. Grant, and General Bobcook, will leave on tho noon train to-morrow for a visit to Now York, whore they will remain tho greater pari of this wook. , INTERNAL revenue. A comparison of tho receipts' of internal revenue for six months ending Jan. 81 I 1872 and Jan. 81,1878, shows an inoroaso in'tho latter bn spirits of $2,017,002 1 formoulcd liquors, $000,234 ; penalties, $08,613. ■ Commissioner Douglass has sent a olvll engineer to South Carolina to complete surveys of lands for direct taxes to* tho United States, and authorized to bo redeemed under certain conditions,' in order that an -accurate map may bo make for tho use of tho Internal revenue officers in making deeds, and for: future use in tho event of logoi controversies, growing out of tho United States sales, as to boundaries and titles. Tho remains of tho late Rear-Admiral Mont gomery wore interred at Oak Hill Comotory to day. There was a largo attendance of officers of tho navy. It was thought, last week, that tho Hon. James Brooks was improving, but yesterday and to-day It was not so i avorablo. • CURRENCY : MATTERS. Tlio Comptroller of tbo Currency to-day noti fied the Secretary of tho -Treasury of tho issue of $600,000 National Bank notes •' during March, and tho Secretary will to-morrow call in the balance of tbs 8 per cent certificates remain ing unpaid. which will finally complete the re tirement of tho whole of $45,000,000 of 8 per cants, as provided in tho act of July 12,1870, which Authorizes tho issuo of $64,000,000 in National Bank notes. Tlio Senate Special Committee on Transpor tation Routes to tho Seaboard will moot at the Fifth Avonuo Hotel, New York, on Tuesday, Anril 8, In order to consider tho subject of the railroad postal-car service, and' to hoar state ments. Tho Postmastor-Gonoralhes made tbo follow ing reply to the announcement by the-railroad companies of tboir purpose to continue) for tho present, running postal cars : Post-Office Department,\ „ . .Washington, D. C., March ni. f To Isaac Hinckley, Esq‘., President Philadelphia, Wil inington «t Baltimore Railroad Company: Dear Sir: I acknowledge the receipt of tbo letter communicated on tho 29th, digued by yourself and tho representatives of several other railroad companion, requesting that tho notice given mo under dato of 27th of January last, relative" to- tbo withdrawal of railway post-office cars, after tho , Ist of April proximo, bo considered suspended for tbo pres ent. The announcement-made in that communication of the purpose of tho companies to continue to run such cars until a sufficient time shall havo elapsed to asccrloln tho views of tho Special Committee charged by tho Sonato of the United States with the doty of considering and reporting ou tbo nature and extent of ■ tho obligations subsisting between tho railroad com panies and tho postal service of tho country, is duly noted, and In tho event that the companies obtain a bearing boforo tho Committee, I shall bo happy to bo present, ns they request.

New York, March 31. —1t is reported from Washington that ’Postmaster-General Creswell is to start, in a day or two, one Southern tour) in company with Senators Howo and Cameron, his principal object being to inspect the postal service. Tho postal-car difficulties ho now con siders settled until the next Congress. MR. CURTIS RESIGNS. New York, March 81, —The announcement is made that George William Curtis resigned.about two weeks ago from tho Advisory Civil-Service Board. His resignation was accepted. WALL STREET. Review of the Money, Gold' Bond, Stock, oud Produce Markets. Social Dispatch to Tho Chicago Tribune. New York, March 81.—Tho events of tho day In financial circles -wore unusually important. Tho new programme .-of Secretary Richardson was tho groat topic of discussion, and elicited much oritieftrn. SoordUry, In th« present impoverished condition of tho Treasury, result ing from largo appropriations by Congress, had either to draw freely upon tho.s-14,000,000 logal toudora or keep up his gold sales and decrease his bond purchases. Ho chose the latter alter native. Tho street generally looked for infla tion, and tho now programme was accepted as contraction, or at least as anything but inflation. The disappointment which followed was the’ basis for most of tho wide fluctuations to-day, although subsequent events assisted in aggrava ting the financial situation. Money was very stringout. Early In the day, all ronewala and now loans wore at 1-16 per diom } bat later the price rapidly advoncod, and, before 3 o’clock. per cent and interest waa paid. After that time, % per cent waa paid, and before 4 o'clock loans wore mode at 1 per cent. The banks were calling in loans to-day, and one institution, banking for the city, called in a largo amount, which was one groat reason of the stringency. Tho Comptroller of tho Treasury denies that ho has called on 800 National Banks to make good their reserve within thirty days. Mercantile paper is nominal. waa buoyant and excited, with wide and fre quent fluctuations. At tho opening tho market was steady at 1X69£@117, and remained at those figures for some liitlo timo, but during tho early part of the afternoon tho demand suddenly in creased, and there was a steady advance to 118>£. Tho upward movement waa assisted by reports from London tlTat money on tho street was % to K per cent above tho bank rate. A noticeable feature of tbo speculation during tho afternoon was tbo heavy buying on mercantile account, and to cover outstanding short contracts. It waa a sort of general scare on the port of merchants and speculative boars, although the parties operating for a rise naturally assisted tho upward movement. Tho largo advance of tho day induced considerable realizations forbull ” account, and, late in tho afternoon, prices react ed about 1 per cent from tho highest point. Tho excitement in tho room was very groat all day, mid tho galleries wore thronged with spectators. Tho cliques have clearly tho control of tho mar ket; and it is feared that, before Saturday night, they will hut up tho price to 120. They can do this easily by buying tho Treasury sale this week, and looking it up, tho sftrao as they are understood to havo dono last week. Thoy claim that tho Secretary of tho Treasury is in a tight • Elaco. Ho has determined to lot out ut $6,000,000 of gold this, month, because, they say. ho dare not sell anymore. His balances to-day show that ho baa 868,880,000 in coin in tho Treasury, of which $23,700,000 are certificates, leaving but $44,630,000 of actual coin with which to moot current expenses, and provide for tho payment of tho May interest, which amounts to about $25,000,000. It is also assorted that be has deferred payment of obliga tions on tho Treasury until April, and that next month ho must use liberally tbo legal-tender re serve, if ho would moot his drafts. Tho etook market was aotivo, and the fluctua

tions wide and rapid. The oxtrorao decline waa 8% por cent, but tho general list showed a fall of Ito 2 por cout. This was tho result of a gen eral want of confidence, and tho bull cliques took advantage of tho fooling to market tnoir holdings and got out. The business of tho day, as recorded in tho official list, is enormous. Control went to par; Rock Island to 113%; aud other stocks foil in proportion. Great oxoito mont, bordering on panic, prevailed. Late deal ings exhibit more steadiness. GOVERNMENT BONUS were lower at the close. FOREIGN EXCHANGES woro completely demoralized. At tho close quo tations woro entirely nominal. Bankers have boon making up an .estimate of the amount of outstanding borrowed sterling, and havo arrived at X 1,737,000 sterling os the amount, with ex ception of that of one firm. PRODUCE, Flour was quiet, with limited arrivals. Prices of family brands were steady. Low and medium grades were easier at tho close. Good No. 2, and superfine aro scarce and in fair demand. Fancy Minnesota ianotplontyandlngooudomaud. Bales 0,000 hrls; receipts, 0,551 brio. Nothingwaa done iu wheat, aud prices of spring ore nominal and favor tho buyer. Winter was scarce and com paratively firm. Tho advance iu gold chocks business and unsettles values. The demand is chiefly for milling. Sales, 10,000 bushels: re ceipts. 10,000 bushels. Stock in Now York and Brooklyn warehouses for the week ending March 22, 521,181 bushels. Pork was firm, but rather auiot. New moss Is quoted at $10.02% cash, n Saturday evening 260 barrels extra prime $13.26. For . future delivery, ylfi'CO Is reported bid, without business Receipts, 1.472 packages. Out moots showed a FUNERAL. BROOKS. POSTAL. George Francis Train is to be examined as to his sanity before a Sheriff’s jury on Thursday. [;To the Associated Press,] New York, March 31.—The bound of gold to 118>£ to-day causes groat osoltemont, bordering on a panic. No failures have yet boon reported, but it is believed, unless the excitement is chocked and the markets steadied, some will necessarily ocour. Nino Jurors woro obtained to-day in tho caso of Nixon, on trial for tho murder of Charles Pfloffer a few weeks ago. Tho Morris Canal, Now Jersey, will bo open for navigation within ten days. A challenge has boon issued to match a Jersey amateur against Paine, tho champion pigeon shooter, to shoot ilfty birds with one ounce of shot, each to iind trap and handle for each other, eighty yards boundary and twouty-ono rise, for $250 against Paine's SSOO. The high winds of Saturday night and yester day caused a considerable portion of tho coast on parts of Long Island to bo submerged. At Hunter’s Point largo quantities of lumbor wero floated off by tho overflowing of the wharves. A passenger train on tho Long Island Bailroad ■narrowly escaped floating out on a bridge. In consequence of ardors from President Cos pedes, of Cuba, changes are made in the person nel of tbo representatives of tho Bepublio in this conntry. A confldontial agency is establish ed in placo of tbo existing olucos, and Mayorga consequently resigns tho general agonoy hold by him. GOLD The story published in a sensational pa papor, yesterday, that it was known that Boacoe waa tho murder of Goodrich, is pro nounced by olUcials a fiction. Bosooo, thoy think, may havo hod something to do with it, and it is true that tbo authorities seek his ar rest, but Mrs. Myers, alios Armstrong, is known to bavo boon at tbo bouse on tho night of the murder, and on that night had boon in company with Goodrich in Now York until 9 o’clock, when thoy parted amicably. There Is no clue to tho whereabouts of Kate Stoddard, an intimate of tho deceased. She is a suspected party, and ceuld probably throw light on tbo mur der. On the other band, tho Chief of Po lice relates that Mrs. Myers admitted to him that lloscoo was tho murdoror, but her state ment does not correspond with what has been Eublishod. Tho Chief, therefore, thinks that irs. Myers was not a party to tho crlrao. Judgo Brady denies tho application to amend tho judgment record in tho Stokes cose. Ho thought tho matter could ho brought boforo tho full Court by a cortoorari. CharlosJJurko, a convicted burglar, escaped last night from Sing Bing. Tho Supremo Court has appointed Lawyer Eruott a referee, to mako a report on account of tho Bull’s Hoad Bank. STOCKS. Obitunryi Special Dispatch to The Chicago Tribune, New York, March 81. —Charles M. Barras, author of tho “ Black Crook," diod last night from injuries received by jumping from the Boston express train, which loft this city at 7p. m. Mr. Burras for sorao months has boon in tho habit of visiting Goa Cob, in Westchester County, every Sunday. A few years ago ho purchased two acres of ground there, aud erected a sub stantial and beautiful residence, commanding a fine view of Long Island Sauna, but, in conse quence of tho death of several relatives, ho sold the place to Air. Edwin Booth, with whom ho imulohishomo until tho commencement of winter, when ho took up his abode iu tho city.
