Tho legal-toudors outstanding amount to a fraction loss than $850,500,000, being about $6,000,000 In excess of what is regarded by tbo Sen ate Financial. Committee to bo ibo maximum amount of that kind of circulation allowed by law, although, as is woll known, tbo Secretary of tho Treasury claims tbo lawful right to draw upon tho $10,000,000 re serve whenever in his judgment it becomes necessary for him to do so.

Over Seven Thousand Immigrants Ar rive in One Day—Miscellaneous Lo cal Items* Special Dispatch to The CMeano Tribune. New York. May 19.—Eight ships arrived to day with 7.852 emigrants, most of whom aro bound for the West. This is tho largest arrival in any ono day this year. Tho police have a new theory in regard to tho Thompson street murder. They think that Jackson, after killing bis mistress, became terri fied, and attempted to wash tho blood from her loco, which would account for tho bloody water found in tho wash-bowl under the bod. Becom ing convinced that she was really dead, ho took his bank-book and wont to .Sarvont’s dauoo-houso to hypothecate it, as be had done before, to got money to got out of town. Being refused, ho wout into tho water-closet aud cut hia throat. Tho barkeeper found him there aud assisted him to tho house at tho corner of Browne and Sullivan streets, to which tho drops of blood wore traced, and either 'ho or bis corpse is hidden thoro, or somewhere in tho neighborhood now. A thorough search is to bo made. It baa Ijeon ascer tained boyoud a doubt that tho murdered woman was tho unwilling mistress of her negro slayer. Ho beat her severely several times when she attempted to escape, anil a letter has been found addressed to Jackson, from a woman in Sing Sing, saying she hopes Sullivan has becoroo reconciled to hor lot, and if she has not, it is bettor that she does so os soon as pos sible. A friend of Count Daniol Boiemontcali, who married Miba Parka, of Brooklyn, on Thursday evening, writes to ono of the morning papers that the Count la worth at least SIOO,OOO In his own right, ITo tbs Associated Press,] New York, May 19.—A morning journal speaks of the Mobile correspondent of a leading bank ing-house in this oily drawing prime sterling bills as having proved a defaulter to the extent of $590,000. The facts which led to such exag gerated statements have been known for nearly two weeks, and are that the firms of Halsey & Co., of Now Orleans; Goldthwaito &. Co., of Mobile, and Halsey & Goldthwaito, of Galves ton, have dissolved partnership, W. P. Halsey alono being authorized to sign in liquidation. These firms represented the house of Brown Bros. «k Co. in tuo cotton markets of the South. The trouble which caused the dissolution was that sterling bills against cotton shipped to Liverpool had boon sold, and when the solos of cotton failed to moot the sums specified in the bills, a reclamation was made. It proved that a majority of the bills wore not responsible, and that Goldthwaito was jointly interested in the speculation. Goldthwaito is a relative of a member of the firm of Brown Bros. & Co., ond his fall is more painful to the New York princi- Eals than any sum that they lose, which cannot o more than SIOO,OOO.

Those cases arc connect ed with tbo contest that bos so long boon going on between tbo Interior and Attorney-General's Departments. Decision reserved.

AMUSEMENTS. HOOLEV'S TIIEATRfiv Considering tho excessive moisture of last evening, Uooley’o Theatre—the pot of tho ladies and the adrairMidtt of tho otbor sox, —was com plimented by & fair attendance. Tbo attraction vras “ Tbo Victims,” ono of Tom Taylor’s society dramas, wbiob is somewhat of a novelty hi Chi cago, Its last appearance in this city having taken place sorao six years ago, -when tbo old Museum was In Us glory. Tlioro is not much lu tho play In tbo way of plot, and to somo minds it is all tbo bettor for that, because it does not involve much mental labor to follow its progress. Flirtations abound, but tboy aro ar ranged in tbo usual fashion, so as to bo abruptly terminated when tboro is an interest ing probability of tboir becoming serious. Tho entire strength of tho company was engaged, and that is saying a groat deal for any play, as tbo versatility and ability of tbo actors aro a guarantee that if tboro is any noting to bo dono it will bo douo woll. This is tmo of a largo majority of tbo company. Mr. Billon was m all bis vein, humor bristling all over him, and bis elastic countenance assuming all sorts of comical attitudes. Uo was Joshua But-, terby in every particular, happening in at inopportune moments, and "putting bis foot in it 1 * with premeditated blun dering that was simply delightful. His wit and audaoiiy carried him triumphantly through ovonr sorapo. Mr. Goorgo Oiddons, who will uo fond ly remembered, made bis first appearance at this theatre, and was greeted with a hearty wolcomo. Tboro was too little of him as Mr. Curdle , “ nn economist and statist,” but tbo small quantity was of excellent quality. Ho will bo no uncom mon acquisition to the establishment. Mr. BlalsdoU as Mr. Mcrryweather, a generous, good hearted, unsophisticated husband, was moro than usually natural, unrestrained, ami sober in voice and mannor. It was a neat and quiet bit of acting, with scarcely a touch of tbo rant which is tula gentleman's besotting sin. Mr. Rowley (Soggn), an old merchant, was jolly and affable enough, but perhaps bo talked in a tone too boisterous, as no was not bailing a ship at soa, but convers ing in a drawing-room. FUzJierberhcrt (Norris), a literary gontlomon, acquitted himself with considerable credit, and bo rolled bis eyes in a “ fino frenzy ” like any otbor stage poet. Mrs. Mcrryweather (Miss Mock) playod tho hostess with much skill, though at times ebo lapsed Into a lackadaisical state that was not absolutely essential. Her costume wnsoxmilalto. Without the accessories of dress Miss O’Connor as Mrs. FiUherbcrt was charming. She pleaded with her foolish poot of a husband, with much patboa cried genuine tears and forgavo tho scapegrace so as to tempt him to sin again, that bo might bo onco moro forgiven. Mrs. Crane, a strong-minded woman, was imitated by Mrs. Maodor, and Miss Anthony herself could not have done much bettor. The remaining parts aro inconsequential, and nothing need bo said about them. Tho scenery was fully up to tho standard of thishoaso, and deserved the applause which it evoked. On tho whole tho play, as presented, will ropav all tho trouble of going, oven if tho night fa damp. It is light and airy, full of ludicrous scenes, and abounding in wit and humor enough to dissipate tho blues. It will bo on tho boards every evening except Tuesday and Thursday, when “ Risks ” will be produced. M’VIOKEU’S THEATRE. The second week of Mr. Edwin Adams' en gagement at MoVickor’s Theatre did not opou more auspiciously than tho first, bo far as Ins audience was concerned, for tho houso was quite small. While this was partially attributable to tho watery sunset, and other indications of storm which blow up toward evening, othor causes must bo looked for to account for this circumstance, which need not here ho enlarged upon, having boon mentioned before. ** Enoch Arden,” with Mr. Adams in the title role, was the'attraction last evening. Whilo this brilliant and popular actor has achieved a reputation bv his impersonation of characters demanding dramatic talents of a higher order, and more exacting in study, It seems strange that ho should regard as bis specialty that of EnochArdcn. It is true that without him tho piooo would amount to very Uttlo, and that it is ho who onnoblos by his characterization a ) . / which might not, in other hands, bo so successful. It is also true that ho can find in tho part scope for (ho exhibition of a largo amount of pathos, and can- illustrate to tho world that a real actor can, by tho force of his genius, construct a char acter marked, dignified, and popular out of not very promising material. And this Mr. Adams has certainly done out of Enoch Ai'dcn. But the question is whether ho is correct in supposing it to he either his greatest* or oven most popular part. It is probable that before tho week has come to an end be will have received evidence to tho contrary, and as without him tho interest would bo very limited, there is not much to recommend tho piece. It possesses, too, an atmosphere of all-pervading sorrow, which not only finds expression in tho hapless miarnor who was “ cast away and lost," but which hangs over the cayor scones and robs them of their gaiety. There is nothing to contrast with this as the plot unfolds itself, tho mirth, if there bo mirth, being too broad ot too dull to boar any relation of light -to the shade of melancholy in which tho on tiro drama is moulded, and hence it ceases to havo that hold upon tho public’ which many others in Mr. Adams' repertoire retain. In this it shows its weakness, if m nothing else. Tho mind of tho audience bos been kept in a condition of long suspense as to Enoch's fate, and when tho truth becomes known by a sudden vision appearing to lus wifo, the fooling is ono of relief to think it is no worso than that. And here one would think that tho playwright has missed tho ontiro spirit of tho poem. To Annie Arden tho mystic words, “ Under a palm-tree," convoyed an instant belief of Enoch's death, and abandonment of all hopes of his return, which finds expression in wards. In tlto play, how . ovor ; tho audionco has tho uncomfortable con clusion thrust upon It by bor vision of her hus band “ under a palm-tree,” that ilfrs. Arden is guilty of conscious bigamy; or at best, rejecting so disagreeable a theory, regard tho incident, so exquisitely full of moaning in tho poem, as hearing in no way upon anything olso that might happen. But leaving the piece for Mr. Adams' share of it, thoro is little to say of it that is not entirely commendable. Tho actor has a perfect conception of tho character dimly outlined in tho text, and sustains It throughout. His elocution, always good, gives fresh meaning to the wonder fully dramatio lines in which tho poet has de scribed tho lonely island : and in his discovery at length of tho long-looked for sail, and con sequent restoration to homo and humanity, as well as in tho last act. whore he takes a farewell view of his wifo and children, ho rises to the full height of his gonius, and thoro, indeed, ono recognizes tho actor. Tho angry determi nation to wring from heaven that share of hap- S lncas which should bo bis gives way to his un ying love for bis wife, winch impels him to forgot himself, lest in claiming his own ho in jure bor. Hero is an opportunity for a fine dis play of dramatio fooling, and tho opportunity is not lost. Mr. Adams’ support was in general better than could bo expected. Tbo dramatis per sons are, fortunately, not numerous, and beyond tho parts of Mr. O’Neil, Mrs. Myora, and Mrs. Stononll, there was no requirement which could not bo amply supplied by any other of tho company. Mr. O'Neil as Philip Pay found himself more at easo in the last two acts than in tbo first, and, there fore, was far more pleasing, especially in his love-passages. Mrs. Myora us Annie Leigh was, as usual, quito up to tbo mark, and made of tho part something more than tho lifeless ofllgy which one is apt to regard it. Mrs. Stoneall, always acceptable, succeeded in adding considerably to tbo interest of tbo piece in Miriam Lane, tbo garrulous relict of a bibulous iuu-Keopor. ‘‘Enoch Arden” gives*an opportunity for tbo introduction of strong sconlo effects, and in tbo mounting of it tbo management bavo shown good taste and liberality. Tbo view of tbo tropi cal island is rich in coloring and in accuracy of detail. In tbo mechanical effects a little moro care might avoid spasmodic movements on tho part of a ship under full sail, which appeal to tbo rlslbles of tbo audiouco.

THE VIENNA COMMISSIONERS. fjottor from Gun* Van Huron to n Vienna l*npor-» Communtsi of tlio l*rcHs of That City. Vienna {April 20) Correspondence of the Xt\o York Tribune. God. Van Duron has appealed to tho Vienna proas in a loiter, a translation of which is as follows: Grand Hotel, Vienna, April 27. To the Ilonornbte Editor, Publisher of the Fcue Frcio Freese in Vienna: Honored Rirj In regard to an editorial article on tho “ Suspension of tbo American Commission for tho World’s Exhibition,” allow mo to inform you that, al though tho source is very cloar whence tho statements contained in tho article were derived, they have been falsely apprehended in several respects. It is not true that the accusations against tho American Commis sioners have boon found to bo Justified. On tho contrary, tho accusations ‘ bavo been directly found to be false before tho committee which was appointed loluvesUgalo them* No oao who knows tho individuals compoStg tho American Com mission will over behove that they bavo been guilty. Tho great work which tho Commission has accom plished, without tho help of tho Government of tho United States, has, for a long lime, received tho highest recognition from tho people of tbo United States. Tbo suspension of the Commissioners is tho result of a conspiracy, which will be com- Stately revealed at the proper time. I beg you, loroioro, honored Sir. Editor, kindly to await tho truth and the proofs of It, attested by tho Government of tho United Slates, before you pronounce your ver dict upon mo and my associates. Accept, honored Sir, tho assurance of my high re spect, and beliovo me, very sincerely yours, Tuomab D. Van Buren, Commissioner-General of tho United States. Tho following is tho remark of tho editor of tho Neue Frcio Prcssc: Mr. Van Buron states, in his communication, that tho source from which wo draw our information Is a “ very cloar ” ono.—which wo confirm ; but wo can by no moans admit that wo havo 11 in many respects false ly apprehended ” tbo communicated facts, slnco “clear ’’circumstances allow hut ono Interpretation. To pronounce a final Judgment upon tho matter Is not our business, and thoreforo we can readily grant tbo writer’s request, by waiting for “ the proofs, attested by tho Government of tho United States.”

I add tho following translation of an article which appeared in the Vienna Deutsche ZcUung of to-dav, and which, though not accurate in all Us details, is interesting as showing bow tbo people hero will probably look at it: Wo have received tho following data In regard to tho suspension of tho American Commissioners, As is known, tboy bavo boon deprived of their sal aried offices, unkor ibo charge of “irregulari ties ” which havo taken place. Tho grounds for this action aro said to bo tbo followng questionable transactions: Tbo firm of Matthews procured tho exclusive privilege for tbo salo of soda water from tho American agency of tho Com mission in Now York,—that is, from tho Commis sioner, Mr. Mayor representing tho Oomraissloncr- Gonoral, Van Burcn. Relying upon this privilege, for which, It lo said, Mr. Mayer received a largo sum, Mr. Matthews constructed a splendid soda water foun tain, and jnado an additional outlay, amounting to SIO,OOO In all.' On reaching Vienna, the firm of Mat thews found that, as early as Inst October, Baron Schwarz had granted this privilege to tho house of Dows. Clark A Co.; that they had therefore boon swindled by Mr. Mayor, and had lost their largo out lay. A socond case is that of a Mr. Uitzcl, who is said to have purchased tho privilege fora “ bar” of Mayer, for $2,000. When Uitzcl camo to Vienna, ho discovered that Baron Schwarz, to whom alono belongs tho right to grant such privileges, slnco they form one of tho sources of tho Exposition Fund, had not conceded it to him, and, in fact, was no longer able to do so. A third caso is that of Messrs. Jewett St Tracy, who acquired in Now York tho exclusive privi lege for nn American restaurant—for a good nun of money, ns is said—and on reaching hero found a rival —Herr Kutluo, who was in partnership with a Vien nese, and had obtained tho privilege direct from Baron Schwarz.

A man called to see hor afow days before hor execution, and after somo conversation told hor that he had understood that sho had somo pot rats. Sho tapped on tho lloor, when out of thoir holes came tho rats, until no loss than fourteen of them had answered tho call.

Our correspondent expresses somo surprise at this conduct of tho wives in ex changing their “ thirds ” for so paltry a sum, hut tho custom is prevalent in many parts of Penn sylvania, and husbands can only got tho signa tures of tholr wives to deeds of real estate by promising thorn a black silk gown, or its equiva lent in money, which is always paid by tho pur chaser. Tho custom is frequently alluded to in the Pennsylvania Boports. Taking tho Census lu Dongal. Tbo Indian Mail Bays that tlio taking of tho ceiißUß in Bengal. over an oroa of 250,000 square miles, inhabited uy nearly 07,000,000 boqlb, has been accompliohed at a very trilling cost, la England the coot of numbering 23,000,000 souls amounted to nearly £BO,OOO, and in tuo United States tlio census of 1850 cost as much as £300,- 000 for a Uko number of people. But tho census of Bengal, tho first that has over been fairly ac complished thoro, cost no moro than £21,000. This result was mainly duo to tho plan adopted in Bongal of getting tho people to number thorn solves. Tho loading inhabitants in overy district woro appointed to carry out tho task without payment, and so dcarly'waa tho privilege rated by thorn all that many who had boon passed over as unfit or superfluous petitioned tuo Govern ment to lot them share in tho honorable work. In thoSauthabcouutry tho village head men kept their reckoning by moans of knotted strings of different colors—black for malo and rod for female adults, white for boys, and yollow for girls, lu some villages seeds or gravel served tho same purpose, one person being told off to count tbo men, another the women, and so on. In Orissa, for mouths before tbo census, Mr. Ravoushaw wont from vUlago to village, preparing tho people for what was coming, un til oven the nulo hill chiefs entered heartily into tbo scheme. Very few cases of extortion have boon discovered, and only ono riot took place. Much of tho work got through was very trying to those engaged. Most of tho enumerators in Hughli had to wado in tho mud from village to village under tho fierce sunshine or tho drench ing rain of a Bongal September. One of them died at tho close of his work, and five moro havo since boon in valided. The preparations for taking tho census gavo birth to a rich crop of absurd ru mors among tho most, credulous classes. In Orissa it was widely bollovod that tho Govern ment was going to repay itself for tho cost of tho famine. Some people thought that only male Adults would ho taxed, because tboir names only woro recorded. Ono man refused to let bis baby be numbered because it was too young to bo taxed. Many pooplo fancied that tho census was a means of forclug’immigralion to Mauritius and Assam. In Marshidabad it was rumored that tho authorities designed to blow tho surplus population away from guns. Elsewhere it was given out that men woro wanted to fight tho Russians, or to servo as coolies against tho Loshais. la Faridpur tho surplus women woro to ho carried off to supply tho want of women elsewhere. In Koakhali it was tho “ General Sahib” who had a longing to look at all tho women of a certain ago. Others thought that everybody was to bo vaccinated forthwith, lu Tirhut no ono would stir out of doors on tho night of tho census for fear of being crippled by tho “ ill wind.” Ocean Steamship News.

How England’* legislator* Aro ■Brought Together* Tho London papers of April 22 say that on tho previoDS evening a very successful signal-light was iiauguratod at tho Clock Tower of SI. Stephan's, to indicate the honorable members at tboir clubs and residences when tho House is sitting. It is vrhat iu a light-house would bo called a fixed dioptric light, with tho addition of a beam, which onco in a minute traverses on are of 180 degrees. Tho mode of Illumi nation has been tested for some time, with most satisfactory results, In five of tho Irish light-houses and In one on tho coast of Norfolk. Common cool gas is burnt, and tbo oxygon of tbo air Is brought In contact with tho Homo twice over, tho effect being to produce a mass of smokeless whlto Homo, Intensely brill iant, capable of'diminution and expansion In volume, to moot tbo varying requirements of a moro or loss clear atmosphere. Tho optical fiart of the arrangement is 11ko that in tho lan orn of a light-house, consisting of three vortl-* cal lights, giving a brilliant fixed wbito light, with tbo rapid roourrouco of o flash, from tho revolving glass screen, making tbo identity of tho light, as far as it can bo soon, a matter of case and certainly. Tho screen is revolved by clock-work, and no loss than fifteen degrees of Intensity can bo given to tbo light accordingly as tho atmosphere la clear or murky. Tho travel ing ray was brilliantly effective over all parts of tho metropolis coming within its scope ; and as, with tho power employed last night, only 800 cubic foot of gas per hour was consumed, it certainly Is not very expensive.
