Several fights had occurred at tho polls just before closing, which alarmed tho officers, and caused tho already large detail of polico there to bo increased.

Tho ringing of tho police alarm bells had a great effect in quieting tlio angry crowd. WHOLESALE MURDER.

Sueetal DUpateh to Tho Chicaoo Tribune, New York, April 7.—Nixon, tho condemned murderer, who had partially recovered from tho serious illness consequent upon his terror at his sentence, hod a rolnpao to-day, and it Is thought that bo oannot rooover. James Julian, a Now street broker, was ar rested this afternoon by tho Sheriff, on a charge preferred by James M. Dixon, of refusing to ac count for SIO,OOO alleged to havo boon deposited In his oaro by tho plaintiff on March 14, 1878. David D. Wright made an affidavit that ho had soon tho money deposited. Tho complaint pur posed to bo witnessed by Thomas Sodlor, of No. 8 Broadway, and Notary Public. Julian gavo bail In SIO,OOO, and was released. Deputy Sheriff Jarvis. was somewhat astonished to boo Mr. Bodler appear as attorney for the defend ant, and, on subsequent investigation, It turned out that Wright was tho assumed name for Philp Stanley, who is under indictment on a charge of forging Wabash and Fort Wayne cer tificates, with which it was recently attempted to flood tho market. Julian was approached at the time by Stanley with a proposition to Join in tho scheme, but refused. After Stanley’s arrest, his two sons, who wore, in Julian’s offleo, wore dis charged, and it is boliovod tho proaont action was taken for revenge. When'their mon struck on Saturday, tho Now York Gas Company rooruitod their force from tho' swarm of recently-arrived Italian emigrants, who havo been idling about tho streets since tho too was cleared away. Tboso men have not taken kindly to tho now work. Constant explosions of unskillfully handled retorts frightened them, and many sickened at tho smell of escaping gas. On Saturday, two wont out of their minds, and com mitted suicide by plunging into the river. This afternoon tho steamer George Blrbeck arrived at tho Gas Works with a sooro of additional hands. Tho moment she touched tho pier, over 100 of tho Italians, who bod boon working since Saturday, simultaneously throw down thorn tools, and made a rush for tho boat. Tho Captain drow a pistol and, springing to tho gangway, drovo them back. Tho majority subsequently returned to work, but somo positively refused to do so, and a fow jumped into tho rivor and swam to passing vessels. Tho fact that those men aro kept at work against their will excites intense indignation among tho fow to whom it is known, and it is expected that its publication to-morrow in tho daily papers will provoke on outbreak.

As thoy did not got in by noon on tho 20th, Wo got vory anxious about thorn, and a party of tbroo mon-Willard F. Short, of Lawrence, Frank L. Davis, of Chilli cotho, Mo. (thoy each had a brother In the miss ing party), and tho man who was sent In tho day boforo, started out to look for thorn. Thoy struck their trait on tho rlvor bank, and followed It down until thoy arrived at tho town lino, tho placo whoco Eddlo had closed and finished his work. Thoy thoro found a groat many Indian tracks. A band of some forty or fifty warriors had crossed tho river right below tho town lino. From tbo closing point tho tracks turned up stream, in tho direction of camp.
