About three weeks more of pllo-dming will complete this work. Instead of tho followers being driven, they have boon placed between those already sot, and it is claimed that the ground has boon made more compact by it, and that tho foundation will ,Wovo all the firmer. THE BALLOT-BOX STUFFERS. Al? ASSESSMENT FOB THEIR DEFENSE. There is a story onrront, end which seems to have a good foundation in fact, that tho County Board Blog made an assessment upon some of fice-holders of the county and several con tractors to pay for the defense of tho tocontly- Irlod ballot-box atuffore, whoso cases were transferred to Joliet on a change of venue, Among those whom It is said wore bled was Ar chitect Egan, of the new Court-House, ond that bo was mulcted to the tune of $75. A Tribune reporter called upon him yesterday afternoon to glean some information from him in regard .to tbecase. »Bald tho news-getter: "Did yon con tribute anything to defend the h&llot-box staf fers, recently tried 7 ’’ . Mr. E.—Beyl . . Bop,—'Were you assessed S7O to aid In Tar nishing means to defend Johnny Crawford, Benry Sexton, et al., ballot-box staffers, tried recently in the Criminal Court? , Mr. E.—l won't answer yea or no to that ques tion.

Homo surprise has boon expressed as to bow (hose Twentieth Ward Judges wore able (o sccuro , the money with which to pay Lawyers Trade ond O’Bnon, but it is now explained. Tho money was wrung from persons who wore under obligation to tho County Board or its ruling members. Egan paid S7S, Tom Nelson paid ss(l, 'smd others wero assessed larger amounts. Who took around tbo hat is not yet known. There aro several officials who aro interested in Twentieth Ward ballot-box stutters. Cleary and Mulloy wore helped to their election by such rascalities, and Corcoran and Agnow may not have forgotten their old friends. It will ho known In a day or two. THE COUNTY HOSPITAL. VTII&T IT IS COSTING. The detailed statement published in Satur day's TiubOsb giving tbo coat of the two pavil ions, now under roof, of tho new County Hos pital, showed lhat the tax-payors had already been bled SIBO,OOO, with nothing to show for tho money bat two ornate fire-traps. In connection with this statement It should bo added that while the books ore correctly kept, all tho accounts are run in together in the lodger, though some of tho items aro separated. Tho books aro kept merely from & loornol, and tho ledger is simply run on a mixed-account siuglo-cutry hauls. Among the items mentioned are over $4.00(1 for sun dries, and $503 for coal. It seems queer, but m the Bundryitoms appear repetitious which should to explained. For instance, thoro Is an entry of $503 paid for coal, yet in tbo sundries is another bill for coal of nearly a like amount, If not moro. It certainly cannot bo that it has taken over $l,lOO worth of coal to run the empty buildings several mouths. Then tho engineer has been allowed $375 for supplies; $875 worth of cotton waste and oil—which aro about all tbo supplies an engineer needs—seems a pretty large sum. There are many items which need scruti nizing, especially those for plumbing, and a lit tle fuithor investigation by tho Grand Jury into this matter might bo notable forTruittul results If carried oat. • V. J. SEXTON. the Editor of Tho Chicago Tribune t Ouioaoo, April 23.—As you have devoted con* ■lderable space to a description of tho new County Hospital, my name frequently appearing mixed up with a mass of misstatements and in* biouations calculated to injure me and others concerned, X hope yon will give mo space for a few words In my own behalf. 1 claim that all the work dons by me on the new Hospital Is well done and as cheaply as u could be done by any one who pays 100 cents on the dollar at too time agreed upon, and further, any charge or Insinuation that 1 resorted to any un fair means to secure the work is entirely false. The Qrand Jury being now In session, I am at their service, and challenge the closest examine* tloo of sll my holiness with the County Hoard. Respectfully, ate., P. J. Bexton. OOBOBOTION. In as article in reference to the Comity Hos pital pubiiahed Saturday, (be reporter stated ibat Ur. Tern Ooortney bad offered Commission- M OarroU #9,000 fox (be job, and tbit Carroll refused. The conversation which actually oc curred Is substantially as follows s Said Mr. Courtney t " Carroll, what do you moan by giving this $09,(100 to this man ? I can do that Job for $05,000, ana could pay a commu nion of $3,000 If required.” - Carrolls reply was, "I don’t want It,” to which Courtney rejoined, •• i did not offer it. But Ido not boo bow, In the faon of all those things, you lot this contract to these people.” To which Carroll responded by expressing his contempt for his constituents. LOCAL LETTERS. A NOTE FROM XUU OALLOWAT, To the RUlor of The Chicago Tribune: Chicago, April 21.—My attention has bean called to an editorial in tho Juler-Ocean of this morning, under the caption of “Township Or ganization.” Tho writer claims that the Town Board, In ap pointing Mr. Callaghan to tho OoUoctotship of tho Soutli Town, offered a direct Insult to each of tho 0,000 voters whocastlhclrballots for mo at thero cont town election. Snob a thought never occur rod to mo, nor do 1 think to tho great body of tax payers who gave mo tiiolr unsolicited support havo any such fooling. It was well understood that I was fully committed to tho discontinuance of township organization at tho November elec tion, and, therefore, had no expectation of ovor performing tbo functions of tbo office If elected. 1 nave already signed a petition to havo that question submitted to a vote of tho people of Cook County at tho noxt general election; and I learn that Mr. Callaghan has done tho same. There Is no reasonable doubt but that the vote for discontinuance will rcoclvo a very largo ma jority of both Republicans and Democrats when tho tlmo arrives. . .. . Upon such action of tbo people, tho Sheriff to be elected at the same time becomes ox offido Collector for tho whole county, and will bo act until legislation can bo had to provide for a bettor system. To a number of friends who have expressed regret that I was counted out, for reasons per sonal to myself, 1 have replied that If they really wished mo to collect the taxes for 1670, all tboy would havo to do would bo to aloot mo Sheriff of Cook Countv noxt November, when 1 would not only collect tho revenues, but would olso, as chief executive of the county, try to aid the courts in meting out justice to offenders against tho laws. Very truly yours, A. J. Galloway. [One paper, whoso groat regret Is that Mike Evans was hoisted out of the office into which his pals had etuffod him, has several times alleged that U was through tho influence of The TniDONE that Mr. Galloway waa not ap pointed by tbo Town Board. Tbla charge la false. Tho fact Is, tho editor of The TnniUHE did not so much as know that vacancies would bo declared or anybody appointed that Saturday evening until after they were all made aod tho Board had finished its work and adjourned.— Ed.) OCR POOS. To the Jidttor of The Chuago Tribune. CmoAao. April 24.—Chicago must be fall of dog-fanciers, for dogs of all -degrees seam to abound hero as they do nowhere else, except it may bo in Constantinople and other Oriental cities, whore they perform the useful part of scavengers. The Chicago ours, however, dis dain such humble though useful occupation, and aim at higher game, viz.: the logs of by-passers on tho street. In certain parts of the city there seems to ho a mongrel cur or two in front of uoarly every house, not a few of which aro roadv on all occasions to nse their tooth if they'get the ch&aoo. Their owners apparently do not think it worth their while to teach them manners, and, indeed, it could hardiy ho ex pected that they would, for tboy do not take tho trouble of teaching oven good behavior to their boys. The result Is that both dogs and boys aro generally speaking nuisances very much need ing abatement. In regard to tho dogs, allow mo to suggest that, as tho warm weather is at hand, U is none too soon for the police to begin poisoning those found at largo unmuzzled. It is a groat pity that & dog-tax could not bo imposed. It would be the moans either of raising a largo revenue for tho city, if properly collected, or of greatly diminishing the dog nuisance. lu foot, it would to a certain extent operate in both ways. Good or useful animals would be paid for—such as aro no nuisances; tho other sort would bo destroyed. Gave Can ksi. THIRD WARD CLUB, To tho Editor of The Chicago Tribute. Chicago, April 24. —Tho interest taken by the Third Ward Republican Club for tho past few months in the discussion of political subjects, especially those bearing on municipal reform, and the Influence which It is believed has been exerted by such discussion, leads ms to request the correction of tho report of the meeting of the Clnb lost Saturday evening, In which tho fol lowing resolution, by William Aldrich, Esq., is stated to have been voted down : Utaolotd, That, fully recognising tho evils that are liable to grow out of ward primaries, yet knowing of uo system tbat will bo tlKcly to obtain more fairly the full expression of the wishes of all (he legal voters of our party, wo recommend the County Central Com mittee to call the next County Convention in the usual way by calling upon the werua to elect delegates at a Ume ftpecliica by the primary eyatem.

The anticipations that tbo breaking np of tbo Eastern railroad pool would uot result in an other disastrous railroad war havo not been re alized. Ever since tbo breaking up of the com bination the war has raged fiercely between tbo various Hues leading to tbo East, and rates bavo been going down lower and lower every day, and there is no tolling when tbo bottom figures will be reached. Most of the companies. have issued tariffs making tbo rato ou grain 30 cents per 100 lbs from Chicago to New York. But uot one of the roads ts adhering to this rate, and ait of them aco making contracts for grain at 250 per 100 lbs from Chicago to Now York, at to Philadelphia, and at 22 to Baltimore. It was reported on ’Change yesterday that in some instances rates had boon made as low as 22>£ cents to New York. This report, however, could not bo traced to any reliable source. Tbo lowest rato reached during tbo war between tbo Pennsylvania and Baltimore & Ohio Batlroads was 25 cents, and then the roads claimed that»tboy wore losing largely. So, If rates are made at 22>tf cents, tbo intention mast bo to drive one or moro of the companies to the wall, and force them back into tbo combination. Whether this game will succeed or not remains to be soon. ITEMS.

THE CITY NATIONAL Another Bank Iletlrod to Private I-lfo. The Hope Expressed that Its Depositors Will Not Suffer. Theories as 1o the Causes Which Led to the Suspension. A Full Examination to Bo Made by the Bank Examiner To-Day. Yesterday morning soon after 0 o’clock an un usual crowd gathered on the sidewalk In front of Mo. 150 Washington street. At time hour the street is always lively with people connected with the Board of Trade and tho neighboring offidos, but they aro continually going and com ing without often stopping lu ouo place. It takes, in fact, something quite extraordinary to call an assemblage together at any particular point. Such was tho case in tho present in stance. Tho attention of tho crowd was riv eted upon A WRITTEN NOTICE posted on tbo door of the City National Bank. It was as follows : The undersigned regret to announce that the share, holders of this bank have voted to dose Us business and go into voluntary liquidation. Tho steady drain upon tho caab raaonrcoa of (he bank, and the impossibility of immediately converting Its assets, seemed to require this atop as best calcu lated to subserve the iorcroats of all concerned. In the opinion of the Directors of tbo bank its assets aro amply sufficient to pay all its liabilities. It will require a short time to convert our assets, and In the meantime we ask tbo indulgence o! our de positors. By order of the Directors. A. B. Mmzn, Cakhler. A Tribune reporter called around at tho bank shortly before noon to ascertain tbo reason for this sudden movo on tho pact of tho bank man agers. Tbo statement regarding tho closing of Iho doors of tbo concern was only theoretically true, as lbs hank was open, and tho regular force of dorks wore busily employed as usual. MU, vr. DUBUNELL, President, was found in tbo private office an swering innumerable questions from anxious and inquisitive visitors. “ Can you give mo some information as to tho cause of the Bank's suspension?”inquired tho reporter. ••1 must decline to make any public statement at present,” replied Mr. Bushnoll. After aomo further conversation, the reporter was vouchsafed a slip of paper containing tbo uamos of tbo officers of the bank. They are as follows : President, W.' Bushnoll; Cashier, A. B. Miner; Directors, W. Bushnoll. E. H. Gam mon, E. 11. Beod, J. J. Gillespie, A. B. Minor, Mr. Basbaell farther stated that the suspen sion was unexpected by tbo officers of the bank nntll Saturday evening, when It was found that there was not enough cash on hand to make tho clearings Monday. Accordingly a mooting of stockholders was called, and held before banking-hours yesterday, at which, as stated iu the notice above, it was decided to doss tbo doors. «n. ccam-es w. amoos, of tho law-firm of Bonnoy, Fay & Griggs, waa next visited. Ho bus boon actios oa attorney for tbo bank for some time, and might naturally bo expoctod to know something about Ita condi tion. Ho stated to the reporter that the auspon alon waa entirely a surprise to him, and that bo bad always bod tbo utmost couQdouco in tbo In- Btitutloo, having there at tbo time of Its clos ing SBOO on deposit. Ho did not appear, how ever, to feol much disturbed at tbo event, ex pressing tbo opinion that there would bo no loss to depositors. The liabilities to depositors, bo said, wore abont SBOO,OOO, but tbo assets would more than cover that amount. Tho cause of the suspension, aa ho bad boon informed, waa not recent, as might bo supposed, and as bo bad • supposed nnlil told other wise, but there bad boon a grad ual stringency in ita affairs for more than a year. Saturday afternoon, when tbo clearings wore made, it become evident that there would not be enough caab loft to m&kotbo next clearing, and therefore tho Directors wise-' ly chose to suspend at once, rather than attempt to carry tbo concern along in tho hope of bettor times. Tho assets, be thought, wore of a very good and available character, being mostly in real estate and Arm mortgages. Tbo bank owned three-fourths of tbo building In which it was located, being a foor-story stone-front edi fice. known as Nos. 164 and ISO Washington street, and waa a very valuable piece of proper ty. Tho losses, if there wot e any, would fall mostly upon the stockholders from tbe shrink age of stock, which bad been until rcceutly quoted at 180. am. a. n. mined wan occupied all day in giving out checks through the Merchants’ National Dank, on the corner of Laßallo and Madison streets. Ho declined to make any statement of the affairs of the hank, saying that a complete report would bo mado to the public in two or throo days. Tbo City National Hank was organized in 18C5, A. L>. Hood being tbo original incorporator, with a capital stock of $250,000. Mr.' Heed has since withdrawn, the principal stockholders at pres ent being E. U. Used, his nephew, E. H. (lam mon, A. 13.

Tennyson's now piny, founded on his dramatic poom of “ Qucon Mary," was brought out at tho Lyceum Theatre In London Tuesday last. Tbo Now York Herald publishes a notice of the production, procured by cable and extending over three chlnmos. Mr. Tennyson has had a number of cotiaboratours in tho preparation of his work for tbo stage. Mrs. Tennyson, Qoorgo Eliot, and many otbor literary people, assisted with their advlco. Mrs. Bateman, manager of tho theatre, gave tho play every advantage of scenery, decoration, and coslmno, ami brought It out in a stylo of magnificence oven surpass ing that of tho Simkspearcaa revivals recently undertaken by her. Tho costumes aro oxnce copies of old costumes now Diluting in Pom fret Castle, Hampton Court Palace, Wind sor Castle, Stafford House, and the Na tional South Kensington Gallery, and aro also taken from pictures and portraits found in tho same places* Tho scenery representing ex actly old Loudon before tbo fire—old street*, old rooms of tbo period and tbo old Guildhall—is taken from old pictures actually in existence. Tho company that gathered to witness the first performance of tbo play was ono of tho most brilliant over assembled in a London tbcatro. Among those present woro Bobort Browning, tho poet; Goorgo Eliot (Airs. Lowes), tbo nov elist; John E. Millais, B. A., and Frederick Lclgbtou, A. 11. A., tbo painters: Lady Hamil ton Gordon; Mr. Furmval, Director of tbo Bhakspoaro Society; Arthur Hallam Tennyson, son of tbo laureate; Mr. Bussell Sturgis, of Baring Brothers; Tom Taylor, tho art crlllo an d playwright; Miss Braddon, the novelist.—in abort, most of tho prominent litterateurs of Lon don. together with representatives of tho En glish, French, Gorman, Italian, Basslan, and American prow. At tbo rising of the curtain, te tiieur fa A'oailles, tbo French Ambassador, is discovered, and opens with tbo linos from tho third scone of tbo original play: If Elizabeth lose her head, That makes for France, And if her people, angered thereupon, . Arise against her and dethrone tbo Queen, That makes for France. And If 1 breed confusion anyway, That makes for France. Tbo drat two scones, and part of tbo thin), of tbo original poem have been cut away bodily, and this is but one instance out of many of tbo freedom with which tbo kuife has boon uaod. Thus, in the second act, everything relating to tbo rebellion is cut out, and tbo parts of yVuaU and Knyccll arc entirely omitted; in tbo third act, tbo first lour scones are remorselessly slashed; of tbo original fourth act nothing is loft but tbe short patmago-at-arms between tbo two old women, Joan and Tib, and a now fourth act is carved out of tbo first scenes of tbo fifth, to which Sir. Tennyson has made some addi tions. Tho now fifth act begins with tho third econo of tbe poem, and then skips to the last scone of all, representing tho death of Mary. Mr. Irving as Philip ond Mrs. ilatomao-uroro as Mary won hearty applause and general commen dation from tbe critics. Tbo papers concur in praising Mrs. Bateman's splendid mise en iccnc, but predict only a short run for tho play, owing to its inherent defects. Tennyson, however, lias no reason to bo dissatisfied with tbo result. Tbo Poet Laureate won not prosout at tbo first representation. M'VICKER'S THEATRE. Mr. Booth’s Hamlet needs no special commend ation at this lato day, yet it is proper to say that in (he course of timo bo has developed tbo char acter into bettor propoitions instead of allowing it to cramp or fetter bis genius. Tbo merits of his acting in tbo part aro mado conspicuous by comparison with Air. Barry Sullivan’s short comings. Sullivan had so little perception of tbo true spirit of ibo play that bo ruthlessly cut tho important sceno between Volonixis, iMcrlcs, and Ophelia, and tho admirable prayer-scone of tho Jung kud Hamlet , and mado other changes scarcely loss objectionable. Mr. Booth has shown bettor judgment than Mr. Sullivan, not only in wbot ho has retained- but in what ho has discarded. Wo thought also that his delivery of tho lines last night was more beautiful and expressive than over before. The writer has listened to him sev en or eight times in tho samo part, never with loss predisposition in his favor, and uover, it mast bo said, with more complete submission to tho power of his genius, liis intelligent do livery of the tots lino, " It is not. and it cannot conic to good; " his exposition of tbo line ad dressed to Ophelia—" For honest men Know well enough tho monsters you make of thorn" —by representing a growth of horns at ultbor sido of tbo hoad ; bis address to tbo players: his closet scene with tho Queen,— all seemed to bo correct and animated. Mr. Booth, wo per ceive, has accepted tbo bint of Coleridge In his answer to Jioscncram, when tbo latter says, "My Lord, you did lovo mo onco," Hamlet replies with noticeable surprise, ".So do 1 now, the meaning being "1 lovo you now as well us ever I did." If Mr. Booth is not the greatest living Hamid, wo do not know whore to look for n greater. The audience was largo. Mr. Me- VjckoraHtboGrarcdwcjcr, Mr. Wardo as I.aerles, Mlko Cummins os Ophelia, and Alina Carroll as tho Qumi, camo In (or a largo share of opplausu. Tim Tuiudnb suggests to Mr. MoYiokor tho propriety of engaging a squad of policemen to preserve order in too lost scone. If a few of tho boors who rush frantically from their seats juut before tho curtain goes down wore clubbed back again, the comfort of the remainder of the audi ence would be greatly increased. ,S 797.813 12,4-43 51,011,629 .$ 250,000 . 13:',000 . 211.

Tho principal attractions at this place of amusement last night were a local sketch called "Tho Lizzies," representing high life In "The Lizzy Actors' llotreat," aud a burlesque of "Fra Htavolo," in which Hiss Nemo Larkollo and Miss Alice Kemp appeared. The latter feature of tho programme had considera ble merit, and, in view of tho limited musical re sources of tho theatre, was better douo than might have boon expected. " Thu Lizzies " wore drawn from hfo-atudlos, and soomod to provoke a good deal of merriment among those who un derstood the surroundiuglugsof "Tho Retreat," as formerly described in Tun Tuidunb.

Removing Llfo'o Heaviest Burden. To remove the burden of disease, tho heaviest (bat poor humanity Is compelled to bear, is certainly a grand object, a glorious mission. Assuredly the dis* covoror of a remedy which accomplishes this result Is entitled to the gratitude and respect of mankind. Bach a remedy Is Hostetler's Stomach Billers, whose great success la attributable to tb* fact that Its re storative action upon the debilitated and disordered system Is in accordance with the principles of common sense. It Invigorates the sick, and, as tholr strength Increase*, the burden of disease grows lighter. It reforms those physical Irregularities which render weakness chronic, and thus eradicates (he evil at Its very source. Liver complaint, malarious fever*, con stipation, urinary troubles, uterine weakness, and many other causes of geueral debility and ill health are completely removed by the combined tonlo and alterative operations of the Bitters.
