Nobody questioned tho propriety of Colvin's action to removing Scully, but when Larry was put in bis piaco the question occurred to many why au election was uot hold to fill tho vacancy. Tho Law De partment gave au opinion to the effect that no election was necessary, since the vacancy was for less than a year. And Larry rejoiced, and roe© ap and called the Law Department blessed. This spring tho office was included in tho call for au election which, ns everybody knows, resalted la favor of the Republican nominee, Martin Best. Larry now asserts that ha will nayer give up tho office to Martin Best or any other man, but . that, ainco he was ap pointed by Colvin, bo will remain iu the ofiico onttl Colvin removes him, or until Colvin him self retires to private life.

Ths mania for. .convening ragged fractional currency Into shining eilvor continued yesterday unabated. Tho Assistant Treasurer's office waa besieged by 9 o'clock in tbo morning with a motley croud, in which tbo first comer bad the first chance. The crowd formed in line, com* monolog at tbo paying-toiler's desk, and actoaliy lining the room, and thou extending out into tbo ball to the door of the collector's office, where it bent and turned back through the hall, until tbo latecomers found themselves at the Arcade court entrance, with about a hundred persona ahead of them. The crowd was composed mostly of people who had scraped together their say* logs, and preferred to have them in the metallic rather than in the paper form, for tho reason, do doubt, that when used to fill up old stockings tbochink of tbo coin would be so E feasant to the ear. And then It looked so right. How it glittered as tho dorks counted It out in various sums I The piles of coiu were formed into curious tthapos. one overlapping an other. and gradually the whole mass topping oft Id the form of a pyramid. It waa attractive to the stooking-owners aforesaid, and they eagerly pressed forward ao tbsir turns oamo aud asked for the cHUenngcoin. Thete was another clans of persona present who bed no such romantic desires. To them ailverprosoniod no attractive ness ears its interest capacity as a medium' of exchange. It may have glittered to others, but to them it made no earthly difference whether it glittered or uot. They were THE rnOSAIO BANK-OLEIUtB. They came to get certain amounts of silver for tbelr respective banks, and when it waa de livered to them, in uot very clean canvas bass, they hoisted tbo coin on their shoulders, and made their way out Tho mam business yester day was to supply tho banks. As a rule, each bank took $3,000, put up in Uiroo bags, contain ing the different denomination*,—dunes, quar ters, and halves. The Find National and one or two others took SC,OOP each, their country correspondents being so numerous that they had to be provided with ao extra amount. It was slow business, that of waiting upon tho general customer with hm $6 or $lO of fractional cur reoor. Thursday receipts wen* given for the currency, and it was piled away to bo counted another day. Yesterday this plan was abandoned, and as each mao presented his scrip the clerk counted It aud paid over the cor responding amount in silver. The result wan that the work sf counting interfered with the ordinary business of tho Sub-Treasury, aud at 2 o’clock no more com was issued for the day. Those who were so unfortunate as to leave their scrip Thursday, with the design of getting their silver ha a day or two when their money should have been counted, may call themselves lucky if they get their com in a week. The amount of silver paid out yesterday was $22,000, must of It, as before elated, going to tbs banka. Tho amount on band when the office closed yester day was neatly $30,000. Ten thousand dollars in coin were received from tbe Philadelphia Mint yesterday morning, and SIO,OOO mors will be received per day until Ihe remaining $70,000 shall strive. Tbe total amount to be sent from the mint is SIOO,OOO, of which amount three in stallments of SIO,OOO each have already been re ceived. ctstaucnoNS wans rbckxvxo from Washington yesterday morning regulating the future issue of coin in place of fractional currency. The order is dated April 18, and save that the various tiub-Treaeuiers m the different oities named are authorized to ueue coin for fractional currency to an amount uut to exceed ♦IOO i and. furthermore, npon the presentation for redemption, at tbo olbces of tbo Treasurer at Washington, of any amount of such currency properly assorted, and in mine of not less than ♦5. tbe Treasurer is authorized to iasue silver coin for tbe amount of currency presented, or to give hia check (or the same, payable in eilvor at aor of tbe ether Sub-Treasuries, as the option of tbo party presenting tbe currency. Tbe fractional corrency redeemed m silver Is ordered to be sent to tbe Treasurer at Washing loo, the amount to be charged u the Treasurer's ttanerU «oln account as a transfer of funds, and all currency so redeemed and remaining at any time In the cash of the several offices will be treated as eoln easels, and In no case will such fractional currency be releened. The sender is required to pay all express chargee on fractional currency aent for redemption, and on all ooln re ceived for tbs same, the appropriation by which the Government was formerly enabled to pay tua charge* having boon exbanated. The offices .referred to are the Sub-Treasurers' offices at Washington. Boston, New York, Philadelphia, fit, Louie, Charleston, Now Orteana, Clnciimall, San Francisco, Baltimore, Buffalo, and Pitts burg. Before tbs receipt of these instructions, As sistant Treasurer Banns waa acting ondor tele graphic inalructlon* from Secretary Bristow. Aa the matter now stands, no coin will be leaned at the Sub-Treasuries in tbe future In earns ex ceeding 9100. When more than that amount is desired It must be obtained by sending the cur rency to the Treasurer et Washington by ex press and receiving from biro either tbe coin or s check payable in coin et the other offieee named. An important provision of the circular Is, aa will bo seen, tbat portion which PBOUIBITfI TDK BKIRSUB OP TUB ItKDKBMBD VBAC- TIOSAL ODIIRKKOT. Tbe object of this provision is plainly to retire the fractional currency, but that this will rosnlt unfortunately to the community is not necessarily true. Whlfo tho country correspondents of the banks in Chicago are clamoring for coin, it ia to bo re niombered that tho banks have gotten about all they want now. They will ship acme of their eupply to these correspondents and keep the remainder. In the meantime, coin will be daily received at tbs Sub-Treasury, and. after the first novelty ban worn oil, people will bo loss desirous of converting currency into silver or of boarding it when it is converted. It will then bo found In the streets, while Just now it is put away in pockets, brick walls, and old stockings. No disbursements of eilvor coin will be made tt'-day, as tbs full clerical force will be needed to ill! orders from tha country which have accu mulated daring tbo past few days. A MISSOURIAN'S MISHAPS. TUC AUCTION OTOBB. A a'lssonri Granger from tbs neighborhood of Kan sas City had heard so much about the .wonrtcra of Chicago, its magnificent palaces, groat lak\'. lameose Exposition Building, won derful Ma yor, and Gaseous Hildreth, that he decided to 1 come here and see for himself whether tlai reports were exaggerated or not. He nut in his pocket about $250, which be deemed sufficient to last about two weeks, and afford him all the pleasures he desired. Then he look the St. Louie, Kansas City & Northern Railroad for Chicago. Ho ar rived Tuesday morning. The first thing that attracted his attention when leaving the depot was o rod fiag banging- from Che window of a store on the opposite sido of Canal street. Tbo inside of that store was filled with a motly crowd, and a fellow with green sneca was talking to them rather excitedly about something or other. Of course he bad to boo wbr.t the excitement woe. Ho found that tho man with green epees was selling goods at wonderfully tow prices. 'While he stood gaping at tbo etranga capers of tho auctioneer,, a poor, emaciated-looking fellow walked de jectedly up to tho counter and pullod out u magnificent gold watch. With tears In hla eyes, ho asked tbo auctioneer to sell it for what ever it would bring. It was a heirloom from his father who paid for it $475 some ten years »go. Ho would nlmoat as soon part with his life as with that watch, but—and hero the tears rolled profusely down his cheeks—bis wife and too Uttlo onoo were crying for brood, and for tholr sake he bad to part with It. Tho auctioneer said ho could not soli eo valuable a watch at that time because tho crowd present was not such as*could give a lair pnes for such a watch. Ho did not cuooso to sell the property of a poor and starving man at a great sacrifice. The suffering husband ami father, however, was determined to bare the watch sold at once, as he bad to have money to buy bread. Reluctantly tho kind-hearted auc tioneer consented and put up tho ticser. Some one offered $lO. Tho face of tho auctioneer turned redder than his hair at such impudence. The Granger thought it was a shame also. Hero wan a chance not only to do a good work and save a family from starvation, but also to get a splendid gold watch at a bargain. He offered $25, the ether mao bid $lO more, and finally It was knocked down to the aoft-hoarted Granger at tho low flgura of SSO. Proudly and trium phantly ho forked ovex the money and pocketed the watch. He crossed Madlson-elroet bridge, looking with wonder upon the large vessel! and steam ers and the fine palaces along his mad He had hardly gone one block whan a finely-dressed young man tapped him on the shoulder and said:’ “rioUo, Mr. Jones, when did you arrive in Chicago?" “.Hr name isn’t Jones," replied the astonished Granger, “rat name is Brown, from Missouri." “Excuse me, sir," said the fine-looking individ ual, “I thought you were Mr. Jones, you look so much like him," and walked off. About ilvo minutes later another gontoman accosted Ur. Brown by his real name. Mr, Brown was aston ished that the man knew his name, and was overjoyed when he beard he was the son of an old friend of hla living in Kansas Citv. To make a loos storr short the twain sauntered off together to see the eights. Of course the Granger was shown how easily be could increase his wealth a few thousands before going back to bis borne In tbo wilds of Missouri, lie tried his luck, bat unluckily be lost all ho had except about $26. By this time bis new-found friend romomoorod tbat-he had an engagement elsewhere, but promised to call for him at his hotel the next morning. The Granger waa then directed to a hotel, where he passed a sleepless night, thinking over tbo tunny wonderful things he bad soon and ex* poricncod during tho day. 110 was, however, not at all discouraged about the loss of his money. Had ho not in his pock et the gold watch which he purchased la lbs morning, and which bo could sell for at least S2OO ? When ho had dressed tho next morning and 1 taken Lis breakfast, ho started out again. He met his friend of the day before. He was glad to see him, and they had several drinks to gather* Tho friend urged him to try hit luck again. This time he would surely win his money hack. Uo never Know a man to lose twice. Tho Granger was willing, but he first .had to sell hm gold watch to get money. He woe' directed to a pawn-shop, hut he soon returned with a sad countenance, informing his friend that tho pawnbroker said bis watch was brass, and worth about sl. The young man was greatly exasper ated that his countryman should havo been thus imposed upon. He volunteered to go back to tho auction atore aud got back the money. The Granger gladly cave tbo watch to hie magnani mous friend to have it exchanged, and returned to his hotel. He waited for tbo return of tho dielnloresied young man until to-day, but ihe young man did uot make bis appearance. TUB SCALPED. Our Granger began to surmise that his friend was a swindler, aud be determined to leave this town as soon as possible. But he had but sl3 left, white tho regular fare was about twice that amount. Uo walked up Clatk street to bunt up a railroad office to see if he could not get a ticket for tho amount ho bad loft. Near the corner of Baodolph ho saw a large sign. *• Uut ford & McKeuzio. llailroad tickets at greatly re duced prices." That was Just tbe place he was looking for. In he wont sod told his sad story. Mr. Mulford told him that he had a drover's re turn ticket to Kansas City which he would sell him for the sl3. He bought the ticket tod before leaving the oiuco was told that he bad to say to tbe conductor that the name on tho ticket was hie. This aUrmod Ihe Granger, and be went to tho Alton offico to inquire whether the pass was good. Ue was told it was not, and the dork canceled .the ticket, tolling him to take It back and get his money returned, The Granger did as told* but Mr. Mulford refused to pay back tho money. After considerable bogging ho consented to return $7. The Granger, however, refused to accept it, and went back to tbe Chi cago fc Alton Jiailrosd office, where be related his experience, as given above. Tbo managers of the Company promised him that they would take tho matter m hand and see that his money was refunded, and would send him back. If Mr. Mulford continues to refuse to return tbe money a warrant will be sworn out against him to-day for obtaining money under false pretenses. SILVER WEDDING. KB.

Befors Justice Foote appeared James Murphy to answer to tbe charge of mayhem in gouging out tho eyo of Edward McLaughlin. The case was continued till to-day, and Morphy was placed under bonds of $5,000. ROBDLVO TSB MAILS. Id view of tho foot that do olaea of criminals receives more ape edy or moro vigorous punish ment at toe bands of the United States District Court than the unfaithful, pilfering £fistal olerka, It is a matter of considerable sunrise that cases of this kind are so frequent. It was only a few weeks ago that one man received two years in tbo Penitentiary, and another, who bad pleaded guilty, was lea off on that account, and owmg to his previous good character, with throo years at Jollot instead of five. And now Comes Marlin M. Lacy to tbo front, with a like dismal prospect of wintering in Jollot. Lacy secured a place about rwo years ago in tbo postal service as a railway poeta! clerk on the route between hero and Cincinnati. At first he passed for an innocent, conscientious employe. Then the Department began to feel uneasy. Money was being stolen from letters and the thief could not ho detected. At last suspicion rested on Lacy, and ho was closely nbadowod. Special Agent Hawley felt pretty euro of hla man after a little watching, bat to order to put the matter beyond a doubt be communicated-with Special Agents B. 11. Camp and George W. While, at Cincinnati, who sent Thursday night several decoy letters from Cin cinnati to Chicago containing sums of money varying in amount from $2 to $5. Special Agent Uawloy awaited tbo arrival of Lacy’s train yesterday morning and arrested him at tbo Illinois Central Depot, demanding that ho pro duce all loiters and money on bis person. Lacy was loth to comply, but these wore circumstances over which be bad no control, and the contents of bis pockets were instantly forthcoming. Four of the letters were found to bo the decoys sent by Camp and White, and bearing the marks placed upon them before they were mailed. The money bad boon, of course, extracted, and in one of the letters Lacy bad substituted the noto of a broken bank In place of a good one. He waa brought before Commissioner Hovno aud had a brief examina tion, acknowloding his guilt before half of the witnesses bad been questioned. Commissioner Hoyne placed bis bail at $5,000, but as Laoy Uvea in Richmond, Ind., and baa no Mends In this city, bo waa unable to furnish a bond, and waa committed to jail. The Government witnesses were immediately called before the Grand Jury, which learned body, having uo special business on band, beard the testimony, and wore informed of tbo plea of guilty. Tbay unanimously agreed npon an in dictment. Special Agent Hawley modestly says that Messrs. Camp and White deserve all tbo praise for working up this case, and that be as sisted in carrying out tbeir plana, instead of contriving them bimself. COLVIN AT OSHKOSH.

OaHxoso, Wlo., April 21.—Laat night the Com mon Council, having present a majority of high lioenso members, attempted to fix a license, when tbo Mayor, who favors low license, undertook an usurpation of Executive power unprecedented in this city. He refuted to allow it to be acted on, refoaad to entertain ao appeal from bis own de cision. declared himself m authority over tbs Council, and made himself absolute dictator. The session was the most stormy and szeited ever known here, and almost resulted to a gen eral row. The Mayor declared the Council ad journed in defiance of a majority.

What His Whole AOhlr Will Coat the Tax-Payer*. Id the early part of 1675 tho County Board recognized tbe necessity of building a new County lloepltal, that oo Arnold street being re garded as unfitted for longer uao. Fob. oof that year tho Committee on Hospitals made a long report, In which tboy stated that tbs building now occupied ss a Hospital was old and rickety, and Immediately In the lluo of the unwholesome river winds, and that during tho yeare 1873 and 1874 SIOO,OOO had been spent In making repairs to tho old build ing, which was oven then in very bad condition. Thar recommended that as- tho county bad ex pended $145,000 on a lot, It go to work and put up sufficient hospital buildings not to cost more than 8150,000. Tho matter was laid over for a lime, and cemo up again Fob. H, when O. O. P. Holden made a windy harangue pretending that ho wanted a building which should not cost over $50,000, and axpresalng the opinion that the amount was enough to put ap Juet such a struc ture as was wanted. J. O. Cochrane had been elected architect, and May 23 a long description of his plan for tbo Hospital was published. His plan was an elaborate one, and Included an executive build log, clinical amphitheatre, six medical pavil ions, two surgical pavilions, kitchen, dormlto rled, boilor-houss, laundry, mortnary, and pa thological mnaonm. Ills estimate for tho cost of each medical pavilion complete was $55,000, and U Is presumed that the surgical pavilions wore estimated to cost no moro. Tbo whole affair Mr. Cochrane would complete at from $500,000 to s3oo,ooo,—not moro. however, than tho latter sum. Lot us boo hem this estimate has beoo lived up to. After much wrangling, and much apparent crookedness among tbo committee members of tho County Board, contracts wore let as follows Julrl. 1875: Willard <t Co.. brick-work, $39,M0; Coffey & Kearney, plastering. $1,686; P. J. Sex ton, carpenter-work. $23,260 ; Koieoloy A Co., roofing, $7,020: Robbins A Carroll, painting, etc., $0,600; cut-stona to L. L. Leach for $11,965. These contracts were to start the work on tbe two first pavilions, which wore to have been ready for occupancy at Ibis date, but are not yet complete. MONET EXPENDED. Cere la what tbo two pavilions have ooat tbe tax-payers all told, to tho present date, and the interior work Is not done.

In connection with this building, it is said that a BILL OF EXTRAS for SSOO has boon put in by Soxton, for fixing tho holes In tbo walla through which the eban doliota are to bo connected with tbo gas-pipes. This work was very slight in itself, and aa ordi nary mechanic would have been glad to have performed it for $25. There are also said to have been prepared t*o sets of plans, one to present to tho Couutv Board, upon which tbo contracts were let. and tho other considerably modified to work from. Tne plans filed calculated that tbo ventilation pipes were to open into tbe rooma 2 feet from each floor, so aa to lot in tbo pure air there. In stead of.tuat, they wore placed some 8 feet high, causing tho contractor to use mors pipe and pat in a claim for extras. Tbo recent let ting of contracts for putting up tbe kitch en, boiler-house, and morgue is well known to tbe public, as well sa the unfavor able orilicUm which it created. Tbe cost of the additional buildings now going up will be about $120,000, if not more. Tho cost of tbe two pavilions, now under root, when completed will be about $150,000 in alt. Thin, with the $120,000 for tbo other buildings, will make a total of $270,000. The othet six pavilions will cost $150,000; then (here is an executive building, grand in de sign, which, according to the present manner of doing work, will cost about $170,000. Thou there are the clinical amphitheatre, mortuary and pathological museum, which will coat eomo $200,000. Thus tbo public baa the sat isfaction of knowing that it will take at least $825,000 more of its money, besides the $120,000 required for kit chen, laundry, etc., making lu all, before tbo buildings ate completed, about $1,200,000. Be sides this, the county paid $145,000 for tbo ground. It is a question whether tbo public will allow this mismanagement to go ou longer. Something should be done to call those men to account. Tboro are fat drippings from these mammoth contracts, and the Grand Jury can And no bettor field for its labor than in getting at the bottom foots about those buildings. AMUSEMENTS. M'VICKER'S THEATRE. The largest house of the season gathered last night to witness the representation of "lliobe lieu.” Mr. Booth, in ibe.titular role, played with his acoostomod force and delicacy of feeling, Toe peculiarity of bis impersonation Is the prominence ho gives to the element of justice In the character of Richelieu. Ho seems dis posed in this respect to accept the testimony of Richelieu himself,—a prejudiced witness. Bui wer, no loss than history, teaches us that the Cardinal ruled by a species of intellectual leger demain, and his continual resort to deceit and fraud is one of the moat conspicuous facts in his life. Strict justice does not roly upon min isters like these. As we have before had oc casion. to sav this season, tbo prominent characteristics of Richelieu are his ambition and his love of country. The epsech begin ning “O Godlike power" (.which, by the way, Mr. Booth delivered with rare spirit and discrim ination) embodies tho whole of his philosophy.- When Richelieu apostrophizes power lie is com muning with his lunsr-aelf; when ho dcclatos that ho is not cruel but just, hd is speaking with a purpose, and at that very moment is using his victim as au Instrument for the furtherance of personal ambition rather than as a monument to i notice. Tho Cardinal convicts himself; cither e was not jus. in condemning Jk Maupral to death, or he was unduly merciful in pardoning him and giving him Julie in marriage. These reflections do not affect the crowning excellen cies of Mr. Booth in tills Play. . His Richelieu is deservedly called one of tils greatest parts, aud hit performance last night may be set down as eoa of his boat performances. John McCul lough and Barry Sullivan have played the part in Chicago this season, but neither of them gave so finished and perfectly-rounded a render ing of it aa Ur. Booth laat night. Mr. Warde as J)e Mauprat was, of course, agreeable, and Mr. Ooesin was, as usual, uneven aud uncomfortable as Barodo*. Miss Cummins played Julie with precision and power, but, for soma strange rea son, she failed to oommunioato to the audiouco that sympathetic quality which waa ao noticeable in Mrs. Murdoch's playing of the same part. • Thu ten derness and softness of Mrs. Murdoch's acting in auch parts as these is remarkable for ita ab aenoe from the art of Miss Cummins. BUo is much too atroog and willful ever to become an excellent emotional actress, without painful and laborioaa atudy. This afternoon 11 Much Ado About Nothing " will bo given for the benefit of the Bhaktpear* can Memorial Fond. Ur. Booth will appear as Benedick, Ulaa Cammms as Deairice, Ur. Mo* Ylcker as Dogberry, and Uni. Murdoch as Hero, Good seats can still ba obtained ou application at the bos'Ofilce. To-night “iltohard 11." will to repeated* Tbo notices of this play in Tub Tiunußß have, it eeoma, misled umo persona, who conitrued them to mean that the perform* aueo «ai not enjoyable. On the contrary, It is one of the most delightful entertainments, for cultivated people, that have been given lo Chi* cage for years. Hr. Booth's impersonation of finAortl if. shows the fruits of diligent and in* telllgent study t and 11 Is as creditabla to him as any of hit more famous creations. Ins Torn trm sol; meant to express (be opinion (bat the play, as a whole, la scarcely designed to holds permanent place on the etage,—principally be came it lacks dramatic movement and oonatrno tion.

Perhaps the rarest, certainly the moat succeieful, medicinal combination extant, la Hosteller's Stomach Bitten. In this commanding tonic, corrective, and preventive, are blended some of the moot actively In vigorating, alterative, and blood depurating elements in the vegetable kingdom. Theee ere held In solution and powerfully elded by tbe beat diffusive stimulant known—old rye wblsky.

The faith felt by tbe medical profession in the restorative efficacy of this medicine, and Us power to nullify tbe Influence of malaria, is expressed over tbe signatures of many emi nent physicians, and their expressions of confidence are fully ratified by the people and the press.
