The Pope Passed a Restless Sun day Night. Great Excitement in Paris Over the Re sult of the Elections. Panic on tho Bourse—Thiers Somewhat Despondent. Paris, April 28.—The following aro tho final returns of the election in this city, yesterday, to fill the vacant seat in tho National Assembly: Barodet, 180,146; Bemusat, 135,406; Stoeffel, 27,058* Tho previous announcement that Remu sat received the least number of votes was a clerical error. The elections in tho Departments of Correso, Jura, and M&mo wore carried by the Republicans; in Morhitian by the Catholic party. Barodet’s election to the Assembly will proba bly cause a change of Ministry. Remusat, Min ister of Foreign Affairs; Loon Say, Minister of Finance, and Jules Simon, Minister of Public Instruction, are expected to resign. Caaimir Periero, formerly Minister of the Interior, and Grevy, late President of the Assembly, are talked of as probable members of the new Cabinet. Paris, April 28—Evening.—The total result of tho voting in Paris and other parts of France, yesterday, to fill the vacancies in the Assembly, was tho eledtion of three Radicals, four Repub licans, and cm«LLegUimist. All the journals except tho Radical organs ex press surprise at the vote in the Department of tho Seine. Tbe Conservative papers say it is due to Thiers’ leaning to the Left, and tbe Re publican journals attribute it to mistakes in the Assembly. The Bien Publique looks upon Barodet’s triumph as a serious event, but re pudiates the idea that its party is discouraged. The Monarchici&l press generally regard the elec tion as a terrible awakening for the Conserva tives. Ze Temps pronounces It a warning to the Government. The Moderate Republicans wbo supported Count De Remusat are embarrassed byhis defeat. M. De Remusat has expressed a desire to resign tho Ministry of Foreign Affairs, bnt President Thiers has induced Mm to remain in office. Count-de Bemusat’s Electoral Committee thin afternoon visited President Thiers, who ap peared to be discouraged. It is reported that when the President first received tbe news of the Count’s defeat he retired to his room and remained one hoar alone. There are fears that tbe Bight in tbe Assembly will now insist on restricting and otherwise modifying univer sal suffrage. The Bonapartlst journals declare that the Con servative Republic is dead. White frost has destroyed the vines in the vi cinity of Lyons. The disaster is similar to that of 1817. London, April 29. —5 a.m.—Special dispatches to the London morning journals of to-day rep resent that the success of Barodet had created an immense impression in Paris. The city and provinces are agitated. A panic prevailed on the Bourse yesterday, and patrols were required to maintain order in the suburbs during the after noon and night. fSF The reports of changes in the Ministry aro contradicted. * London, April 28.—At tbe monster meeting of Federalists, yesterday, violent speeches were made. London. April 29—3 a. m.—ln tho House of Commons, to-night, Mr. Smith moved that, be fore deciding* on the further redaction of in direct taxation, the House demand of the Gov ernment a declaration of its views respecting the adjustment of Imperial and local taxation. Mr. Lowe, Chancellor of the Exchequer, Sir Stafford Northcote, and Messrs. Fawcett, Massey, Goschcn, and several others, made speeches. The debate, which was somewhat acrimonious, was protracted to a late hour, and was adjourned until Thursday. The Anglo-American, French, and Newfound land Cable Companies agreed yesterday to an amalgamation of tbeir interests. London, April 28.—Madrid dispatches say that Becerra and Figuorola, of tho Permanent Com mittee, have been arrested, and tho search for the other members continues. Mad&id, April 28.—A band of 600 Carlists en tered the town of Capollades, and demanded a contribution, but fled on the approach of Na tional troops. London, April 29—3 a. m.—Reports are in cir culation that the Carlists intend to withdraw from Spain, and give up tho straggle for tho present. AUSTRIA. v Vienna, April 28.—The cabmen nave struck in consequence of a disagreement with the authori ties in regard to the tariff of faros. They aro threatened with fine, imprisonment, and the loss of their licenses, if they persist in the strike. Frederick, the Crown-Prince of Denmark, has arrived in this city. ITALY.

Important Decision—The Pittsburgh Bond Bobber—Phelps, Dodge A Co.— George Francis Train Riotous ’Longshoremen-City Finances—mis cellaneous Local IVcivs. Sp*cial Dispatch to The Chicago Tribune. New Yobk, April 23.—Tho Milwaukee National Bank of Wisconsin brought suit against Arthur Hughes, and others, to recover tho value of a cargo of wheat. It appears from tho papers in tho case that Mower, Church & Bell purchased the wheat in Milwaukee on the order of A. F. Smith & Co., the wheat to he paid for partly by sight drafts : and partly by time drafts. The plaintiff discounted all the drafts, sending them, with the bills of lading, to the City Bank of Oswego, requesting the bank not to deliver tbe wheat until tho drafts wore paid. The bank presented the drafts to Smith & Co., who paid the sight drafts and accepted the time drafts. When tho wheat arrived at Oswego, the bank ordered its delivery to Smith & Co.’s ele vator, subject to order of the bank. The wheat wsa so delivered, and Smith & Co., it is alleged, without tho consent of the bank, sold the wheat to Bandall & Kenyon, of Chicago, and, under their instructions, shipped it, obtaining hills of lading reciting that they were the shippers. The defendants made large advances on the credit of tho bills of lading. The case was tried in the United States Circuit Court, before Judge Smalley, who, to-day, held that tho sale of the wheat to Bandall & Kenyon was unau thorized, and conveyed no title to them, and that consequently. the defendant acquired no legal title to the wheat. By direction of Judge Smalley, a verdict was given for tho plaintiß for $24,685. > The Central Stock-Yard and Transit Company, of which Samuel W. ABerton, of Chicago, is President, David H.

A pier 2,500 feet long and 320 feet wide, is being constructed, on whim a superstructure, 500 feet long, 800 feet wide, and three stories high, is to be erected. Tracks will be run to tho structure to connect with the Pennsylvania Central, Erie, Midland. Now Jersey Central, Delaware & Lackawana, and the great railroads to the West. The Company propose to purchase* transport, and slaugh ter cattlo and sheep. They have formed combinations with the above named railroads to secure transportation, and they will place ma chinery in the building that wilTonablo them to kiU and dress 3,000 beeves and 10,000 sheep daily. It is claimed that tho building will be the largest of the kind in tho world, and that the facilities for slaughtering and prepar ing animals for market will be com mensurate with its proportions. The Com- Eany are also arranging for a line of oata to carry the dressed animals to New York, Brooklyn, and other places. The building is to be in working order within a year. Some letters sent Phelps, Dodge & Co. to Mr. Jayne enclosed copies of replies, exculpating the firm, which Mr. Jayne refused to sign, but sent answers instead, charging young Mr. James andyoungMr.Dodgo with premeditated fraud and perjury. Iu other letters they admit their guilt, and bog that tho Government will not proceed formally against them. In one they tell the au thorities that James and young Dodge are on their death beds, and if the prosecution is per sisted in, the Government will bo responsible for their lives. Accompanying the copies of fraudulent invoices will bo copies of the false oaths taken by the two members of the firm mentioned. Mr. Jayne will charge that Phelps, Dodge & Co. havo been carrying on these frauds during the lost five years, and that ho can prove a loss to the Gov ernment of $443,800. He will also say that Judge Davis at first urged prosecution strenuously, and that afterward he asked District Attorney Bliss for half of the moiety, and was very angry be cause the Collector refused to compromise for 8271,000. Charles G. Hampton, the alleged Pittsburgh bond-robber, was brought up in the Court of Oyer and Terminer to-day, before Judge Brady, on a writ of habeas corpus, and discharged. Ho

was immediately rearrestod while in the court room by tbe Deputy Sheriff, on a requisition of Gov. Hartranft, of Pennsylvania. No sOoncr bad tho Sheriff and CoL Whiteley got possession of their prisoner than it was determined to has ten him to Pennsylvania in order to prevent another habeas corpus. Hampton was hand cuffed and placed with a Secret Service officer and two Deputy Sheriffs inside a close carriage. Another detective mounted with the driver, and the carriage was driven rapidly up Broadway, the destination being Col. Whitley’s office inßleccker street. From here it was proposed to rnsh Hampton across to Jersey City and into tho cars. Jude on Jarvis, order-of-arrest clerk, spied a car riage following the detectives and prisoner. In stantly it occurred to him that it contained a lawyer fortified with a second writ of habeas cor pus. He sprang into a hack with two deputies and started m pursuit. Tho three drivers lashed their horses into a run, and an excited crowd followed, speculating as to the cause. The car riages, however wore driven at such a speed that the crowd was soon distanced. Tho prisoner was safely conveyed to the depot and placed on tho train for Pittsburgh with a brace of officials. The defense in the matter of the investigation into George Francis Train’s mental condition opened this afternoon. The court-room was crowded to overfiowing ; and the spectators were kept in a state of continual merriment over the description given by the witnesses of Train’s conduct in the Tombs. Jndge Daly had to call them to order several times. Justice Dowling, Dr. Nealis, the Tombs physician, Warden John son of the Tombs, and a Tombs tract distributor named Heath, were examined. They united in saying that the prisoner was only insane in the presence of tbe examining experts and reporters, and gave it as their opinion that he has been acting a part for the purpose of se curing as extended an advertisement as possible at tbe least possible expense. Warden Johnson described how Train used to coll him back after the doctors had gone, and chuckle at the man ner In which ho had fooled them. They said that when not in the presence of visitors his conduct has been entirely rational, although he has been a great nuisance, and they want to be rid of him at the earliest opportunity. ITo the Associated Press.] New Yobk, April 23.—A motion was made to day on behalf of W. Watts Sherman to vacate tho attachment granted against his property in a suit by Mr. Fechter for 8412,000 damages for alleged breach of contract. Tho motion was based principally upon the ground that Sherman was not a non-resident, that bo was not living in London os claimed, but was on a pleasure travel ing trip on tho Continent. Tho Court reserved its decision. This afternoon, a gang of sixty ’longshoremen refused to allow a gang of New York men to go to work on tho steamer Pembroke, at Jersey City, and at one timo a riot threatened, but tho police appeared afid prevented an outbreak. Four jurors were obtained to-day in tho trial of Bleakley for the murder of his niece. The Commissioners of Indian Affairs resumed their session this morning. B. B. Cowan, As sistant Secretary of the Interior, assisted the members of the Commission. Bids for trans portation woio received amounting to twenty-two m ail. Tho bidders were chiefly from St. Louis, Chicago, Pittsburgh, and Cbeyonne. The qnan tity to bo transported amounts to 25,000,000 pounds. Tho managers of tho Now Atlantic Cable are dissatisfied with the Hog Island approach, and contemplate bringing too cable to Brooklyn by some other way. A special Committee of tbe Board of Assistant Aldermen to-day reported that tbe fees, emol uments, and salaries of the City Chamberlain and County Treasurer ware excessive, and an outrage on the people; that the interest on the pity money shonld be added to the principal, and that the Corporation Counsel should bo in structed to recover and secure such interest to the city. WALL STREET. Review of the money* Gold* Stoclx* Bond* and Produce.Markets* Special Dispatch to The Chicago Tribune* New Yobk, April 28.—Money was easy during tho early hours at 7 per cent gold, but daring the afternoon became dearer, and advanced to 1-32 per diem before 3 o’clock. After that hour the rate declined to 7 per cent gold. Prime mercan tile paper continued in good demand at 9 to 12 per cent, though very little business was done lower than 10 per bent. STOCKS. Railway snd miscellaneous speculation was more active than on Saturday, but lower prices prevailed. Tbe decline ranged from to 3 per cent, and was most marked in Pacific Kail, St, Paul common, ‘Western Union, Union Pacific, and Harlem, New York Central, Lake Shore, Ohio & Mississippi, Bode Island, Wabash, C., C., C. & I. C., Panama, and St. Paul preferred wore % to 1 per cent lower and less active than tho shares previously named. The failure of tho Atlantic Bank had a depressing ef fect, and seemed to canae an uneasy feeling on tho Stock Exchange. Burners were afloat this afternoon in regard to additional bank troubles, bnt none of them conld be authenticated. There is talk on tho street of a movement to “twist” those who havo gone extensively "short” of tho Pacific Mail stock. Gonld, StockwoU, and Hatch are said to havo most of tho stock, and will notallow tho street to cover its "shorts" at present prices. - GOLD was weak, and price declined % per cent, with tho late dealings at about tho lowest point. The weakness was caused by the Treasury pro gramme for May, and the prospective large dis bursements by the Government. The dullness of exchange also disappoints speculators for a rise. Bosns.

Additional Details of tbe Great Defal cation—Xlie Criminality of tlie Presi dent and Directors—Meeting* of De positors—A .Thorough Investigation Ordered by the Comptroller of tho Currency* New Yolk, April 28.—Angry depositors gathered around tho. doors of tho Atlantic Bank this morning, but were refused admission by tho police. Many and load imprecations were •gratuitously bestowed on the Presi dent, Directors, and' everybody connected with tho institution. One man deposited 8900 a few - minutes before 3 o’clock on Saturday afternoon. He was particularly loud in his denunciation of the officials. All accounts agree in stating that. { never was so rotten an institution known,, and many of the collaterals on which loans bad been made are utterly Vwurtbless. No examina tion appears to have been made for a year at least, and the Directors were until quit© recently satisfied that all was going on well. It is stated, that on Friday afternoon one of the officers sus pected something was wrong, and threatened to jnako an examination. The Cashier la reported to have-defied him, and started to xptum to the bank, but the other got there before him, and locked up certain securities which might other wise have been appropriated by Taintor. While tho hooks belonging to the Clearing-House Asso cirtion have been below their reserve for tho past few weeks, the figures famished by tbe Atlantic have shown, on analysis, an excess, and* in hut Saturday’s statement $86,100 is reported as special when not a dollar was la the vault. Many persons are of opinion that no reliance can be placed upon the statement of the default ing Cashier, that the stealing has been con tinued for several years. They believe it was a square steal, and took place within a brief period. The President succeeded, on Saturday, in stopping 870,000 which was to have been paid to tho Cashier by a party who had sold for him stolen bonds and other securities to that amount, which has therefore been saved to the creditors. It is believed that Taintor has most of the stolen funds in his pos session, and that he will yet offer to compro mise. On Thursday last, a gentleman,who is a stock holder and was formerly a Director in the bank, gave an order to a broker to sell his stock on Friday, and he could probably have obtained 93 per cent for it, the par value being 875. On Friday the gentleman countermanded the order, saying that he thought he would hold on until July, as a dividend might be paid then, notwithstanding the fact that none had been paid for nearly two years. Now. this gen tleman has not only lost his stock, but will be called upon to put up 100 percent of it to satisfy the depositors. It is stated that tho President, Mr, Southworth, is ruined by tbe collapse. At a meeting of the depositors teniay, Mr. Fuller, Chairman, said that he had seen Taintor this morning, who stated that tho officers of the bank hod been aware of the condition of affairs for more than a year; that at least 8100,000 with their knowledge had been carried in the sus pense account for a year. Dr. Cutting expressed the opinion that Tain tor had squandered the great bulk of his specu lations within the past few days. Special Dispatch to The Chicago Tribunt* Washdjotok, D. C.. April 28.—Tho news of the defalcation of the Cashier of tho Atlantic National Bank, New York, has created consid erable stir at tho Treasury Department. The Comptroller of the Currency will cause a thor ough investigation to be made of the condition *of the bank, and its* manner of doing business previous to the confession of tho Cashier. Much surprise is expressed that the Government Bank Examiner, in his examina tions, did not discover something wrong. The defalcation was not a sudden one, but has been carried on for some time. It is stated that, had the Bank Examiner performed his defy properly, he could not have failed to detect tbe Cashier. It is ascertained that the Bank Examiner in his last report represented the bank in an impaired condition. (To th* Associated Press,} New Tons, April 28.—“ No farther informa tion ” is the answer given to all inquiries at the Atlantic Bank, where Mr. Strong is endeavoring to disentangle tho confused accounts. The greater number of depositors who called at the bank this morning appeared to have lost but small amounts, and none of those' painful scones occurred so often seen where large sav ings banks suspend. Taintor, tbe defaulting Cashier, is married and respectably connected. His friends say that his defalcations wero prompted by a desirb to serve tho bank, and that he erred through ambition, and not bydishonest intent. At the meeting this morning of the Clearing House sad conference committees of tbe Clear ing House Association, the bank was suspended from the privileges of the Association. A full meeting of the Clearing House Association will bo held this afternoon, and the bank will be ex pelled. There was a slight flurry in Wall street during the morning hours, in consequence of the defal cation in the Atlantic National Bank, hut prices were not much affected. The misfortunes of the bank are regarded as tho conseqnence of imposing upon the Cashier duties that should have been discharged by other officers. ■ Presi dent Southworth was formerly in the grocery trade, and bankers and brokers say that, if ho was a failure as a grocer, be is not likely to be a suc cess as a financier. Charles E. Strong has been appointed Receiver of the Atlantic National Bank. Taintor, tho defaulting Cashier, was taken be fore United States Commissioner Osborne to day, but, not having counsel, and not making ap plication for release on bail, was returned to the Ludlow Street Jail. Among the prominent cofferers by the Atlan tic Bank defalcation are Bewolls Borrows, a wealthy merchant of Albion, N. Y.. who had 8100,000 of the stock. A large number of the depositors of the bank held a meeting this after noon, J. A. Fuller presiding, and a resolution was adopted for the appointment of a committee of five to co-operate with the Receiver of tho bank, and to report to the depositors all obtainable information concerning the affairs of the institution. A number of speeches wore made, in which much indignation was man ifested against tho defaulting Cashier. Several criticisms were also passed on the other officers of the bank, to whose lack of vigilance the ac complishment of the frauds was attributed. Opinions were expressed that Taintor still re tained a largo amount of the money obtained by him; also that the frauds had not extended through years, aa he asserted, hut were matters of the lest few days or weeks. The meeting ad journed subject to tbe call of the Chairman. ■Washington, April 28.—The Atlantis National Bank was examined in February and October. 1872. The reports of the Examiner show that tbe capital of the bank was seriously impaired. The Comptroller of the Currency directed that no farther dividends should he declared ; and accordingly no dividends were made during the year 1872. Bad debts to the amount of $32,400 were charged off during the same year. The defalcation is supposed to have occurred fromtbeusoof.the special deposits and collat erals by the Cashier. - •‘Bead Agents’> Abroad* Tiuoisia, Nev., April 28.—Tho stage from Hamilton for Plocbe, was robbed last night near Hamilton; Tho driver was killed by three men painted as Indians and having gunny-sacks over their heads. The stage had five passengers, none of whom were molested. No resist ance was offered. , The driver stopped when ordered, and handed out tho Wells & Fargo treasure-box.
