Then ho went to call on two of his female cousins and took them to tho matinee, after which ho took them to tho banqueting house, and tho banner over them was, "What’ll ye have, girls?" He fed thorn with strawberries and comforted them with cream, and paid for the same at tho rate of $1 a plate, Subsequently ho discovered that thoy were his own strawberries. • He departed for Alton by the night express, declaring that hence forth he would wage eternal and relentless war against middlemen and monopolists. Thin is the merry time of auctioo sales, when women wander forth with galochoa on their foot and grim determination on their countenances, and seek bouses whore sales are to tako place, reluming homo so tired that thoy cau hardly lain, to declare that if thoy had the mess and rubbish some people call furniture they'd use it for kindling-wood be fore tbo/d display tboir poverty and poor taste to tho public. A woman on Uoyno (drool was about to move, and con viucod her husband that thoy couldn’t do bettor ibao soil off their furniture at auctioo, and buy tome more at auction, maintaining thus the ap parently Irreconcilable thoiics that (1) you can always get things at auction for loss than their worth, and (2) that you con always get more at auction for things than (hoy nro worth. Ac cordingly she disposed of her household effects i'rlday.

BELLIKO orr OLD CLOTHES. A prudent young man up on Seeley avenue, itho sells all bis old clothes wbou tho spring lime comes, has hit upon an ingenious plan for Inc: catting his revenue from this source, 110 oaiclullynnakcs a bole In tho lining of ono of (be pockets of tho vestment whoroot ho is about to dispose, and puts tberoiu a small wad of tissue paper wrapped about with a greasy Con federate note. When tho dealer comes around to purchase, he naturally explores tho pocket, and, fooling what bo takes lo bo a compact wad of 'greenbacks, lays, “How mooch zo vest?" “Tho vest?" replies the prudent young man; "O, that la an tmlucky vest. I haven’t worn it since last Christmas. 1 thought I had a roll of green backs atnodotiQg to SBO in tbo pocket, and when { came to foel for it ii was gone. And yet," ho adds, musingly, “ 1 could havo sworn no one was near that vest. But it’s a good vest; coat m 0511.50." “And bow mooch you takes for him, my dear?" says tbo merchant, in avoico trembling with emotion. “O, well, limes aro hard, and 1 must get all 1 can,—sß.7s,” replies tbo prudent young man. “ tight thaler so?* inty-fivo cents I” screams the dealer; “you (ought J was dor Belknap, horn? leaves you (unfty cents." “Fifty Erebus!” replies tbo prudent young man; “pull down toot vest and gimme back mino. I’ll wear It another season; in this Centennial year wo ought !to rotum.lo tho economy of our forefathers ; I’m going to return to tho economy of my forefather; gimme it.” “ Acb, no. ” answers tho dealer, who dreads lest the precious garment should bo reft from him ; “ 1 goafs you uoox thaler.” •* Well, seeing it's yon." says tho prudent young mao, “ you can havo it,” and so the dicker is consummated, aud tho dealer hasten* away with bis prize. Ho has done such on extensive and protiiablo business that he thinks aoiiouely, if there only aro enough (old-clothes merchants in town, of baling some ready-made clothing him self and selling it as second-hand. Tbe some of ebook is exhibited by tho Junk dealer who pays U cents to a credulous woman for a sC*pounu weight, declaring that be gives a cent a pound for old Iron. ACADEMY OPISCIESOCS. An adjourned meeting of the Chicago Acad emy of Bclencos was bold last night at the Acad emy, No. 203 Wabash avenue, E. W. Blatcliford in tbe chair. Numerous donations to tbo museum and library were reported. Tbe first scientific paper was road by Dr. Ed mund Andrews on the character of tbo drift for mation in tbo neighborhood of Lake Michigan. Its object was to determine whether the formation was due to tbo action of trosb water glacioreorto sea icebergs. Tbe speaker bad procured Ike analysis of water obtained from different portions of tbe drift, and bad found that it (tbo water) contained 18 grams of salt to tbo gallon, giving CO.OUO barrels of salt to every square mile of surface lu tbo neighbor hood of Chicago, This wont to prove that tbe formation of the drift was duo to the action of salt-water icebergs, as the water of Lake Michi gan, lust above, contained only a third of a grain of salt to a gallon, ami tbo water of tbo rocks below contained but 8 grams of salt to tbe gal lon. Mr. Peabody exhibited and explained by black board drawings a specimen of larv®, which bo bad in a phial, aud which, ho said, had boon ejected (tom tbe nose of a colored gui while sneezing. Tbo girl had boon subject to convul sions. The insect was supposed to be of similar species to those that bavo heretofore been found In tho human bead. Prof. Elios Colbert presented some interest ing calculations on Crook’s experiments on tho repulsive force of sunlight, iuvolving the quan tity of matter contained in comets, tbo expulsive motion of a comet's tail, aud tho losa of plane tary atmospheres. Dr. U. A. Johnson described a naw method for illuminating microscopic objects, which was valuable io the observation of difficult objects, as tbe counting of tho lines in tho bands of Noberl'a scale. PHILLIPS GOES TO LAW. HE WANTS TUB EMOLUMENTS Of OFFICE. Tbo ousted To mi Assessor, Edward Phillips, filed bis long-threatened bill st last yesterday against Hermsnu Lieb, Joseph I’ollsk. L. D. Wallace, Calvin D'Wolf, J. Bummerflold, Peter Foote, George A. Mooch, J, Charles n&iuos, Robert T. Llncolu, James Qloeson, and William B. 11. Gray, being tbo County Clerk and Town Hoard of the Town of South Chicago. Phillips states, in detail, tbo town meeting on the morn* log of April 4, at No. 204 LaSalle street, the coarse of the election during the day, and its results, which was, among other things, to mako him Town Assessor for the ensuing year. Due notices of election wore sent to all the officers by the Town Clerk, Gleoson, and the proper certificate was tiled with the County Clerk, who indorsed it in the usual manner with the date of filing and his name. Phillips poos on to rbow that the County Clerk La bound to make up piopor hooks before May 1 for tho Town Assessors of the lands to he assess* ed; that ho went to Mr. Lieb and demanded the books for tho South Town Assessor, hut was refused : and that Lieb is uow about io deliver the books to W. H. 11. Gray. If this be per* milted Phillips fears he will bo deprived of the emoluments arising from tho oflico of Town As* sensor. The Town Hoard also is intending to recognize Gray as Assessor, aud fix his pay H required by law. Tbo complainant then (mi m to slats that tho Town Hoard could doW •lerolsa their authority to appoint any town officers unless under the following con* dltiont or exceptions! that a vacancy bad oo ourred In eomo one or ail of (be town office* either by a failure of the town to elect tbe proper number of town officer* or that ooe of those elected bad failed to qualify* or when a vacancy had occurred by death or resignation, or if any officer had become insane, or had re* moved from the town or ceased to bo an in* habitant of tbe district for which ho was elected, or hsd been convicted of an infamous crime, or of an offense involving a violation of bta official oath, or had been removed from office, or had refused or neglected to take tho oath of office, or failed to give or renew his official bond. None of these conditions having happened, THE TOWN BOARD HAD NO POWER to declare as they did the offices of Supervisor. Assessor, Collector, and Town Clerk vacant, and bad no power, therefore, to proceed and fill them by appointment. But even If the Board had had such power at the meeting of April 16, they lost it by admitting that the election was valid in recognizing and allowing tho resignation of Pat rick K. llyan, tho Supervisor, and in allowing Glooson to Jolu with them in tho appointment of R. T. Lincoln in Ryan’s place. The Town Board also issued a certificate of tho election of Lincoln and Gray, which has boon filed with the County Clerk, hut Phillips alleges that it bears uo mark or date of filing, and remains in (he County Clerk’s office for somo purpose to him unknown. Mr. Gray gives out that bo is the legal As sessor, and is about to receive the books from the County Clark, sod the Town Board assert that alioy will recognize him as Assessor. Phil lies. of course, domes that Cray has any right to the office, and therefore asks for an injunc tion to restrain the County Clerk from issuing the Assessor’s books to Air. Gray, and to pre vent tho Town Board from recognizing him as such Assessor, or voting him aoy salary: and also to nrovont Mr. Gray from receiving tho books, making any assessments, or taking tho Town Board for any salary. Messrs. O’Brien, Barge & Dixon and Haines & Tripp appear aa solicitors for tho complain ant. An application will be made this morning to Judge Parwoil for a temporary injunction. LINCOLN PARK REPORT.

THE FOUNDLINGS’ HOME. cniLUEttN’e pAtn at tub pacific hotel. The children resident at tbo Paelfio deter mined upon a fair to aid of the Foundlings’ Home. Probably not one of them has the re motest Idea of tbo functions of tbo institution, or tbo sorrow and misery of which it Is tbe out growth, but they bad board of a bouse full of voungstora to whom toys are strangers and lux uries unknown, and so they decided to bold a fair and devote tho proceeds to tbe comfort and consolation of tbe unfortunates. For two weeks the seven little girls and two very small boys who constitute the world of society at tho Pa cific have been busy. Not perhaps In the manu facture of salable articles, for, from tbe display, that branch seems to have been committed to older and defter bauds. Bat they have been busy in discussion of the project, and wild with expectation of Us consummation. Cau cuses have been held in odd corners and behind doors, between young ladies whose drosses stuck out very much behind, and young gentlemen with remarkably pointed collars, and pan taloons fringed with clearly defined scallops. Uyndiuatcs wore formed, sud, as after tho estab lished custom, parties, nogs, and cliques grew up and UourlsDod. Bat those latter were only as to details, for all tbo charitable young mission aries agreed solemnly that their duty to society demanded of them an effort lu behalf of the un fortunates to whom one cow’s milk is substance aud a sugar-rag a luxury. Yesterday was fixed for the Juvenile Exposi tion. One of the parlors had been selected and hermetically sealed. Inside were Katie Bello Barter (aged 7), Amy Geekill (aged 8). Emma Kellogg (aged b), Tiny Nims (aged 10), Helen Dunlovy (aged 3), May Meyers (aged 8), Eulie Andreas (aged 7j, Palmer Kellogg (aged 11), and Willie Beckwith (aged 8). Outside wore a score of wide-open mouths and two score of expectant eyes, their owners awaiting tbo opening of tho door. At a few minutes after 3 tho portal was unlocked, aud tho guests rushed iu. Everything was in keeping with the fair, its object, aud Its prime movers. Ail was on the young and inno cent order. Hlx tables (6 is about tbe average ago of tbe children) were ananged to take up as little space as possible, and to bear as much pressure as necessary without tipping over. TUt TABLES. Table No. 1 bore a mountain of fancy goods. There wore mats for toilet cases; cornucopias in perforated paper, worked in marvelously blended colors: groat book marks, with quota* tioue from tbo word of the Foundling who came from tho (Danger; plu.oushious of rare design and exquisite workmanship; fancy boxes with impracticable lids auu deceptive bottoms; dolls of raro beauty and remarkable expression; dolls' dresses that would have carried ouvy to the heart aod terrible twinges to the back aud legs of Miss Jenur Wien. Upon the second table was an Inanimate young lady, arrayed after tbo prevailing mode-of tbo dav. Her pull-back, ilouucea, boots, corsage, sleeves, tournure, hair) all tu that remarkable TIL'S CHICAGO TRIBUNE: WEDNESDAY. APRIL 26, 1876. fashion which we tolerate when It clothes live bodies, and laugh at when it adorns a doll. The third table held a bed, probably Intended for tbe voting lady oo (ha second table, when tbe eas terns of society and the oapneo of her owner will permit her to enaicU a few winks of tbe balmy. Table No. 4 was loaded with flowers, rare sweet flowers, that filled the parlor with per fume, and made tho room contrast strangely with those apartments for whoso ocoapanis tho fair wae held.—not very ploasantlrooms at best, and filled with Utile beds, and they in turn too often with little sufferers, to whom a flower is like an angel, unseen this side of the grave. On tables Nos. 5 and (1 wore the toilet-sets and accoutrements of tho various dolts. Everything In miniature, sverytoing complete. Bnroans, dressing-cases, bedsteads, alt that makes the fashionable doll sufficiently comfortable and languid for her station in society, And aronndthem all wore tbe groups'of chil dren, hurrying from one fascination (o another, and delighted with all. They Boomed to thor oughly understand that tho income from all this array was to bo devoted to somo nondescripts, popularly known as “poor children," and gen erally supposed to have tho full complement of legs, arms, and digestive apparatus, but beyond that their information apparently failed, and also their Interest. Of course tho hand of restraint must bo fell, and Mrs. Coddington Billings, Mrs. T. 0. Barter, Mrs. R W. I’oot. Mrs. 0. P. Kellogg. Mrs. Samuel Parker, Mins Nana Quinn, Miss .Mary Oaskid, aod Miss Hattie Gasklll kindly volun teered their services to keep tho children quiet, aod bond the twig of tho proceedings in the way it should go. And the result was a pro nounced success, aod, when the doors wets closed, some S3OO had hooo realized for the lit tle urchins, who came into tho world to bo inno cent carpet-baggers, and whoso existence de pends upon some such charity as that developed yesterday.

They will also turn out in 'grand parado In com memoration of his birthday annually hereafter. Tho Board of Trustees of Hyde Park mot yes terday afternoon; all present, Mr. Taylor pre siding as temporary Chairman. Balloting for a permanent President was re sumed. and after fourteen ballots Mr. Beasley was elected by tbe following voto : Hensley, X ; Taylor, 2. Mr. Beasley then accepted tho posi tion in a brief and quiet apoeoh, and tbo Board was ready for business. An ordinance was then offered by Mr. Schlund to the effect that, as the funds to the Treasury wore low and there would he low taxes collected before September, the foUomng.nnmed offices be abolished : Village Attorney. Village Engi neer. Superintendent of Public Works, aud Cap tain of Police : also that tho throe first-named officers tnm over all their books, papers, ole., to tho Village Clerk, aud that tho Captain of Police tarn oyer his papers, etc., to the Sergeant of Police. The ordinance was then adopted by tho following vole : Yeas, Pogue, Schlund, Taylor, aud Bensloy; nays, Farrell and Powell. A resolution was then Introduced by Mr. Bogno to tho effect that a special committee of three bo oppolutod to examine into tho questiou of office duties required of and salaries paid to each, the number of policemen employed, whore stationed, and salaries paid: and that the special committee be instructed to report to tho Board tho result of their Investigation, together with such suggestions in tho form of ordinances as m their judgment will decrease village ox ponses and economize and simplify tho workings of the Municipal Qoyorumeot. The resolution was adopted unanimously, aud tho President ap pointed Messrs, Bopuo, Schlund, and Powell. The Board then adopted temporarily the rules of tho old Board, except tho one relative to tho time of mooting, which was fixed at 3:30 o’clock Tuesday afternoons, instead of Saturday, as heretofore. Tho Board then adjourned to moot Tuesday afternoon. The choice of President was one requiring a long contest, owing to the difficulty of malung a selection between two such excellent men as Mr. Bon&loy aud Taylor. Tho latter has largo Interests in the village, and his vote upon tho ordinance reducing tho number of salaried offi cers showed a praiseworthy desire to reduce ex penses. Mr. Bonuley is too well known as Pres ident of tho Chicago Board of Trade to need further mention. Tho first action of the now Board is in the di rection of cconotnr and reform. The aggregate of salaries paid the four officers whoso places have been abolished was SIO,IOO. While there will ho an undoubted necessity for somo one to attend to tho legal business of tbo vil lage. the engineering operations and the public works, it is not so certain that the officers need bo oontiuuallT on salary, and there is strong probability that the Board will vote to employ legal aud engineering talent for soecldo pieces ot work aa may be necessary. The special Committee appointed to look into the question of tbo number of officers required wijl endeavor to report at tho next meeting, when the matter will be settled. The Board of Trustees met In the Town Hall Monday. Tho petition to open a street In Edeson's auhdivision between Lincoln avenue and Dl vorsoy street and the petition of proporty-own era to rescind the ordinance for improvement of Washington street wore laid on the fable. Ou motion, the rules were suspended and per mission granted to property-owners on lloscoe street to lay wator-pipo at their own expense. Tho following was presented by tho Chair man, and, ou motion, adopted.

The Water Committee, to whom wore referred the applications for (Superintendent and Engl* ncor of tho Water-Works, reported that they Lad selected tho application of A. H. Gurnee, and on motion the report was ordered received and placed on Die. Go motion, Mr. A. ft. Gurnee was appointed Chief Engineer and Superintend ent of Water-Works.

Movement to Reorganize the Concern*** Petition of tho Sepoiitori. Surprise In Washington at tho Suspension —Tho Shareholders. Bank-Examiner Watson returned from Wis consin yesterday morning, and, after “ cleaning up." ns the usurping Mayor classically expressed It to King Kaiakauo, proceeded to the City Na tional Bank, whore ho remained all day examin ing tho books and records of tho institution. In this arduous task ho was aided by rrosfdent Bushooll, Cashier Minor, sod tho various book keepers who have boon Identified with the bank. Late In tho afternoon a Timurne reporter dropped in to ascertain tho progress of tbo work, and with lha hope of obtaining an in telligible statement of tbo assets and liabilities of the suspended institution. On applying to Bank-Examiner Watson for information, ho was informed by that gentleman that ho had nob completed more than ono-lmlf of the task, but ho hoped to havo it done this evening. “ Then you will have no objections to furnish The Tiuddne with a copy of your report ? " said the newsgatheror. “Yes, air. 1 have," ••Why?" “I cannot furnish any one with a copy of my report to tho Comptroller of the Currency, with out his permission. lam not allowed to do so.’ * THAT REAL ESTATE. 11 Mr. Busbnell,” said tho reporter, “ I notice in this morning's Tribune that the deeds of cer tain parcels of property transferred to von by Mr. Minor were placed on record yesterday. Was this done by Mr. Minor for the benefit of tho bank, or is it a private transaction ? ’’ " I havo not yet mode any statement, and am not prepared to make any now." " But if It was done for tho interest of the bank, why not lot tbo public aud the depositors know it? It will increase their confidence In the ultimate ability of tho bank to pay.” A hurried oonsultatiou was held between Mr. Buslmoll, Cashier Miner, ood Mr. Watson, over tho momentous question propounded by the re porter, and after tho lapso of a couplo of min utes the answer was returned; “ Partially for tho benefit of tho bank." “ Can you give mo an Idea as to bow much ?’’ "Well, no, I cannot, it is partly a private transaction and partly a bank one. and tho two are so interwoven that I cannot now explain." At this instant the Assistant Cashier appeared on tho scene and stated : “If you want an item of nows you may state that there is a movement on foot to neonaaxizis tub hike and contiuao tho business.” “Ho you propose to tako in now capital ?” “ Yob, wo are negotiating for prominent local capitalists to tiilio hold of the concern and put it ou its font. But not enough has yet boon ac complished to justify mo in saying It will bo done.” “ Can't you turn to your boohs and give rao tho amount of yojir assets, which are convertible at onco, tho amount that can bo converted in two or three mouths, or six months, aud tho amount of suspended paper which you are carrying?" “X could only give you tho approximate amounts now, and tbov are of no mo in showing tho condition of tho bank. Besides, the depos itors who havo been lu hero to-davjbavo not ashed any «uch questions. Thor are tho only ones Interested, and, when they don’t, why should you oak such questions ?” “ But The TninoNß would liko to know for tbo benefit of (ho public.” “Tho depositors don’t ask to know ; then why should tbo public ?" “ Tbo suspension of a bank la a matter of pub lic interest, and tbo details of Its affairs are equally so." the prnnotf. “See hero, look at this petition. Hoad it, and you will see that tbo depositors bavo confidence lu us, and I tell yon that tbo bank will eventual ly par up everything. There is no B. F. Alien hero.” Tbo following is tho petition? CutoAoo, April, 34, 1876.— The Hon, John Jay Knox, Coinvtraher of the Currency: The undersigned, who are depositors lu tho City National Bank of Chicago, 111., for the amounts set opposite their names, respect fully pray that sold bank may bo allowed to go Into voluntary liquidation, and settle up Us business, being satisfied (bat tho bank can in that manner adjust its affairs nnd pay Us liabilities more quickly and satis factorily than in any other way. Yesterday afternoon tho petition had received tho signatures of depositors whoso deposits ag gregate almost $200,000. Finding that uu mare information could be ob tained, the reporter withdrew. The suspension of the bank caused the Metropolitan Printing Company, of qhlch D. P. Burr was Superintendent, to do likewise. It closed up Monday evening, and tho men em ployed therein wore discharged. It has boon a losing concern for some time. Nji telal DUmlehto The Chicaa- Tribune. Washington, D. 0., April 21.—Tho failure of the City National Bank, of Chicago, was a groat surprise to tho Comptroller of tho Currency. Tho latest reports from tho bank have showed it to be in a favorable condition, aud there was nothing oitbor in tho last report of the Exam iner or m tho loot regular report from the bank which could load (bo authorities bore to boliovo that tho bauk was not in a sound and healthy couditlon. BanK-Examlner Watson, in his state ment of Feb. 8, which is tho last regular state ment of tho Examiner, reports tho capital stock ot$250,000; surplus, $130,000; undividedproffte, $18,792; individual deposits, $160,000; duo to National banks and Btato banks, $619,000. From this statement tt appears that the liabili ties of tho bank wore something more than $1,000,000. The amouut of bonds deposited as security for circulation had boon reduced to $55,000. Tho bank had $260,000 with other banks and bankers, including their reserve. They had $220,000 in legal tender and National banknotes; also $07,000 in exchanges for the Gloarina-Uouse. Their bills receivable wore $718,000, of which amount SOI,OOO were over due ; $20,000 wore loaned on real estate, aud $76,000 loaned to Directors of the bank. The last report, made March 10, differs only slightly from tho regular report of tho Examiner above cited. The Examiner on Fob. 8 reports the hank as doing a good and prolltablo business under careful aud conservative man agement. The legal reserve was fully up to the standard. The value ot tho bank building was returned at SIOI,OOO, which the Examiner did not think was overestimated. As far as can bo Judged from the statement of tho Bank Examiner, the Comptroller of tho Currency thinks that the bank ought to bo able to pay all Its liabilities, but the Comptroller has not as yet boon advised of the especial circum stanced which may have occasioned (ho failure of the bank. The occeunts of the bank with Its country correspondents wore very targe, hut no reason is here khown why ou that ac count the bank should have been alarmed, ovou if the drafts from country bankers had been vary great. The only explanation which can here ho given as to the probable failure of tho bank is tbat unusually large drafts wore made from country correspondents, which the hank did not feel itself able to fill. The Comp troller thinks that this ought not to bo the case, as the report of the Examiner shows the bank to have boon strong in cash. According to the statement of the Examiner, it would seem that the bank ought to have stood drafts to the amount of at least $300,000.
