Tcley kguinst U*o ]3 oftrd 0 f Health, i'no Mayor, and the C'oiur lon Council, to pre .vent them from making any contract with 1 Jusse & Scanlo.v to do tljo scavenger work f ,or tho city, on tho % lo> md that there is no p revision of law nn d -r tho new charter for having such work done except by tho or nploymont of one or more scavengers from day to day, and that oven if the Board of.

In Philadelphia all is turmoil and tmehari lablencss. From tho tone of many dis patches, all who arc not drunk are weary and tieavy-hidon. Tho big high-joint managers lave only taken sufficient respite from tho ■* crisis ” which wrenches them internally to tit down on tho several State Commissioners pho had come “ on " to make tho affair suc cessful. Tho price of beer fairly infuriates ho great-girdled who bathe in it, md the cupidity of tho Philadelphian anrveyor of all other commodities astonishes the experienced watering-place shark. Tho condition of things yesUulay in tho show buildings was Babel, and Bnhol at over 80 Fahrenheit. To-morrow, however, tho Presi lent will clamber over the chaos of bores »nd proclaim that tho Fair is all ready for popular gaze, and tho noisc-makiug clap trap which will bo used to emphasize his ilatcmentis ohout tho only part of tho whole affair which will bo finished at that time. In tlw Methodist General Conference at Baltimore, yesterday. Dr. Lanaixah, who seems on general principles to see something wrong in nil Book Concerns connected with the Church, presented a memorial charging *Unt the Western Publishing House nt Cin cinnati is insolvent, and that the statement of the condition of its finances, published by authority, is not a fair showing, in that it omits from the assets over $500,000, most of which is in real estate. The Doctor also charged that the records of the lost General Conference were not complete ; that an important document had been omitted, and thot the object of this omission was to cover some unlawful act on the part of the managers of the Now York Book Concern. These statements of the Kov. Lanaiun do not appear to have made a very deep impres sion before tho Conference, yet in view of the charges made it waa considered advisable to appoint a committee to investigate the matter, before which tho accuser will be in vited to bring all his proofs. The now Common Council began its career last evening ns if it meant to carry out the will of the people as expressed by heavy majorities at the lost municipal election. It was a splendid begiitning, and prom ises well for tho era of reform so long needed and so earnestly labored for. Out of tho I!C Aldermen chosen, tit! have enrolled themselves on the side of tho people, and 10 liavo joined tho fulling for tunes of tho lato Acting-Mayor, The anti- Colvin members of the Council bavo a clear working majority of over two thirds, w> demonstrated by tbo various votes of last evening, a majority composed of clear-bendcd, courageous, honest, earnest, practical men, who wcut to tho Council Chamber with tboir course fully mopped out, and adhered to it with a determination and success that will command the admiration and approval of the entire city. Colvin and his small body of retainers were completely outgeneraled, and tbo now Coun cil consummated tho popular will by canvass ing the vote cast for Mayor at the last elec tinn, and by formally declaring the Hon. Thomas Honns to bo tho duly-elected Mayor of Chicago. The extended report of tho Council proceedings given in our columns this morning will bo read with genuine inter est and satisfaction. No such readable and enjoyable report baa been printed for many years. The Chicago produce markets were moder ately active yesterday, with an easier feeling in provisions and a firmer tone in breodstuffs. Mesa pork declined 40(5*4 5c per brl, closing at $20.85 for June and $20.80 for July. Lard was firmer early, but closed dull, at $12.80® 12.82} per 100 lbs for May and $12.4C(5>42.47} (or July.

If >o was firmer at (»2c. Barley ad vanced closing at 070 for May and (12c for Jam:i or July. Hogs were moderately active arid firmer at $7.10@7.2.i per 100 tbs. Cattle t fere in good demand and steady at $t. j.j.00. Hheep were quiet and tin* chnngi xl at .$.'.00(5)7.00. Quo hundred dollars lu gold would buy $112.01*4 in greenbacks at tho c* mao. T’aa experience of Miss Sweet, Pension Agfmfc at Chicago, as narrated by herself ye/ .tcoday before the House Committee on the Cri'il Service, is a curious corroboration of tt. a oft-ropcatcd assertion that political e» juality would bo gained by the fair sox at t) je expense of chivalrous consideration and f jalliut treatment at the hands of their male • ionipetitors for office and emolument. Miss Hweet was appointed to a profitable posi tion only to bo mercilessly plucked by 1 tho tyrant man. Sho'was no match for him, 7 and after holding the office of Pension Agent for over two 3’oars, she finds herself $2,000 • worse off than when she was plain Miss Sweet, How she was cheated aud drained of her rightful salary to pay the debts and . deficits of her predecessor, David Blakely, , under the representation that she could ’ noithor obtain uor hold the office unless she consented to this shameful assessment, can : best be learned by her own straightforward narrative. She was tho daughter of a gal lant soldier whoso meniory is honored in Chicago, but this could not avail to protect her from the greedy meanness of men who - professed to bo her best friends. Her case is ouo that will gain for her universal sympathy, and for those who cheated her universal con* demnation. Tho least that can bo dono to atone for the wrong is to refund the money that has been wrung from her. United States Marshal Campbell has already made a proffer of this kind, it is to ho hoped in good faith, and with tho full intention of carrying it into effect. Judge Fabwell yesterday refused to grant an injunction in favor of ox-Assessor Ed Phillips to prevent Vf. B. 11. Gray from taking possession of tho assessment books for tho town of South Chicago. Tho Judge, while declining to state whether the action of tho Town Board in appointing Guay ns Assessor was legal or not, hold that tho Board in certain eases had such power, and that they having exorcised it, nud having given a certificate of appointment to Gray, who had entered on his duties, there was no doubt but that ho had color of office. Phillips also having a certificate of election, but Gray being possessed of the books, nud having been recognized by the County Clerk, the Town Board, and oil others whose recognition was of any value, could legally proceed to net, and his acts would bo bind ing on third parties. No one could resist payment of a tax ou the ground that ho was not an officer. Indeed, the Court thought an officer would have colorof ofllceif his position was not as good as that of Assessor Gray. There was, then, no great damage likely to re suit to tho public if an injunction was refused. Tho Conrt also held that a court of equity could not interfere in coses of contested elec tion, bnt that tho proper remedy was by quo warranto, or by tho usual legal mode of contesting an election. This decision will of course apply to any similar suit that may be brought by Evans or Gleehon, and it is not likely that any further proceedings will bo begun against Gray, as the ossessmont will be completed by tho Ist of July. COLLECTING THE PUBLIC REVENUE. Wo have the official announcement that during the month of April the public debt was reduced $2,781,181, and that during the same month the receipts of internal rev. onuo, os compared with the mouth of April of last year, showed an increase of $8,000,- 000, It will bo scon that, had it not been for this increase in internal revenue, there would hove been a deficiency in the Treasury, in stead of a reduction of the public debt. The increase in the receipts from internal revenue, which will ho continuous, is duo to the activity and energy with which that branch of the service has been administered since the Secretary of the Treasury broke up the great whisky conspiracy and the frauds in tlio tobacco business. The internal rev enue service has been always more or less corrupt, especially in the collection of rev enue from spirits and tobacco. Trom 1805 to 1808, when the tax on spirits was two dollars per gallon, the Government was notoriously robbed of the greater part of the revenue. The thou Secretary, Mr. McCoixocn, though an able man and au honest man, had a loss perfect system of law, and lacked tho mental power and nerve to enforce it. Ho was not, moreover, the kind of man to grapple such an organization. His successor, Mr. Boutweix. who was a roan of unquestioned integrity, who had hotter laws, reformed tho business for a while, but ns early us 1871 tho robbery had been resumed on a largo scale. Under Mr. KiciunnsoN, of course, tho King did pretty much what it pleased. It was not until Mr. Bias-row succeeded to tho office, bringing with him In tellectual vigor, dauntless courage, untiring industry, and freedom from all personal and political ontanglemonta which would stay tho hand of justice or seek to screen tho guilty, that any earnest movement was made for re form. Ho at once entered upon a thorough search into tho secret operations of the whisky revenue service, and, one year ago, ho startled the country by the arrest of scores of guilty officers and others, and tho capture of as many distilleries aud an im mense stock of illicit spirits. It was a bold movement, requiring undoubted pluck. It I was u direct assault upon the strongest ex isting auxiliary of machine politics. It was tho capture of tho King's treasury, through which all manner of corruption in politics was accomplished. This Whisky King was powerful in every souse. It had a cash capital of not less than one hundred millions of dollars. It included, besides those actually engaged as manufacturers, a largo body of intluentiid politicians, including local political leaders, newspaper editors.and pro* prietors, am) a force of Federal officers, all of whom were active politicians, and this force of Federal officers extended through all the Departments of the Government, reaching to the very auto-room of tho Executive office. It had an immense fund at its disposal. Tho wen directly and indirectly engaged In it wero bo many political machines; they mode political slates, nominated Congressmen, packed conventions, stocked Legislatures, dictated Governors, controlled caucuses, and selected Senators, besides, in a general way, managing monioip&l elections, and they con/ THE CHICAGO TRIBUNE: TUESDAY, MAY 9. 1876. ■tituted os a political power a force which re quired the utmost courage to attack, to pur sue, to indict, convict, and punish. The Radical Kentuckian, who all his life had bravely avowed his Abolition and Republican principles in the very centre of a slave-bolding population, was Just the man for thin emer gency. Ho was satisfied there was fraud, and that the Treasury was robbed, and, knowing it to bo his duty to break up tbo corrupt con spiracy and punish the guilty, ho did not hesitate in his action. He struck his vigor ous blows without asking who might bo crushed ; ho caught the Federal officers and powerful politicians with the plunder iu their hands; ho purified the legal branch of the service, and one hundred aud more convicts, either by confession or ver dict, attest how earnestly the work Ims ; been done. In like manner he broke np the fraudulent transactions iu tobacco, aud up rooted tbo systematic undervaluations and smuggling at the New York Custoni-Uouso. lie, for ajimo, largely suspended iho nmnu fsoture of whisky, hut ho has succeeded in having the tax collected. Ho has furnished hundreds of convicts for tbo courts to pun ish ; has made defrauding the revenue dis graceful, dishonorable, aud unprofitable. Ho has mndo tho corruptionists disgorge their plunder; ho has placed honesty where dis honesty once had absolute stray. Ho has broken up the pay department of political corruption, and dislocated much of the ma chinery by which State politics have been controlled and Congressmen made and kept in office. He has done tho country a great public service, and ho has accomplished it in the face of tho open or indirect oppo sition of all the machine politicians of both parties, tho President alone giviug him moral aud official support. Were it not for these reforms in the collodion of rev enue, whereby that which was onco lost is now* collected, it is probable that, in Anew of the falling off in importations, there would bo now a deficit in the revenue. Ho has to a largo extent purified the branch of tko civil service immediately under his charge, and gives tho best practical indication of how ho would carry out that reform under en- larged powers. Ho has in tho great work ho has accomplished stopped heavily upon the toes of tho conspicuous friends of many leading machine politicians, and has thereby evoked their bitter enmity. But the great mass of tho people regard him as tho faith ful public officer, who dared to asnail organ- ized fraud, and who successfully brought it to justice, and who has given direct evidence of his fitness for the present time, when offi cial corruption threatens to overwhelm tho Republic itself. YESTERDAY’S PROLETARIAN RIOT. Tho Bohemian and Polish laborers in the lumber-yards in the southwest quarter of tho city wore called on by the proprietors to ac cept $1.25 per doy instead of $1.50, on ac count of tho great depression in business, struck, nud refused to work at that r«to, ns they had a right to do. But there were plenty of Germans, and Irish, au.d Americans destitute of employment who wero glad to take tho vacant places. But this enraged tiio strikers, who demanded $1.75 per daiy, and, under tho influence of Comtnnniat dema- gogues, resolved that tho ofihor workmen should not bo employed, but that they must bo token back u t advance wages, and they proceeded to mob both the workmen and tho employorr/. A largo proportion of these Bohemians 'aed been idle during tho winter months, ou tho hulk of tho work consists of unloading vessels, sorting and pilinglurabcr. Tlioir r <jfusal to work, under these circum stance, and in tho present hard times, was a folly which only ignorant mon would oommit, fri'Aco, including thoir families, some ? 9 000 or '<4,000 people are dependent on their employ ment at this season of the year. But, since they have resorted to violence and an at tempted interference with the right of other men to labor ut any price they choose to ac cept, it is no longer a question of the policy of the strikers, but simpSy an emergency re quiring the strong arm of authority to sup press quickly and sumnmrily the mob-violence incited against it. Tlioro is a present truce between the strikers and the employers, but it has been obtained by a practical abandon ment of work, and the terrorism which the strikers sought to establish virtually exists. The moral force of this must bo broken, and the right of free men to free lahetr established beyond the reach of mouaco. Tho experience of yesterday is a warning to tho people of Chicago that this city, like other largo communities, contains the ele ments of European communism which tho experience of tho world teaches can only ho overcome by force. Tho most summary sup pression will bo attended by tho least loss of life and tho smallest destruction of property. Whatever private negotiations shall ho made between tho lumber-dealers and their cm- ployos is a matter for them to arrange as they please; but tho authorities should bo prepared to protect the employers and any of tho men who desire to go to work beyond any risk of effective interference. Yester day's riot is sufficient to indicate tho desper ate spirit of tho strikers. Tiioir attack on | tho police, their driving off tho mou who went to work, and tlteir gutting of Miiixm & Co.'s office, are offenses that call for tho punishment of nil tho ringload ors of tho not who can bo apprehended, and will warrant tho firing at, ii istoad of over tho heads of, any mob that irny again assemble for tho samo purposW If anybody else shall be killed or injured, it o light not to bo a lumber-dealer, nor a m m willing to work, nor u policeman; all th o injury, from this on, should be sustained by tho rioters. Tho Bohomion who read th o riot act to his fol lows, and counseled me deration, is entitled to tho gratitude of his countrymen, and it is to be hoped he way ha' to influence enough to prevail over them. Bi it any further demon stration should be it at promptly and effi ciently. Thu First 1U igimont Is equal to tho dispersemouc of the mob, were it twice as numerous and ten tit aos as desperate. There must bo no hesitut ion in calling tho regl went into service, t! occasion demands it. Tho pcoplo of Chica go cannot lie down quiet ly in their beds wl vena lawless crowd of Communists threaten to fire tho lumber dis trict located in tho southwestern part of the city, and. more threatening, os to tho spread of lire, tbim auy othur. Not ‘.merely tho present safety of life and property, hut the good re pute of the city, depend upon tho complete suppression of this outbreak: against law aud right, oven at the sscritlco of tho lives of some of tho foolhardy men whoso ignorance hasbdtrayod thorn into riot and bloodshed. Thor o is n hope that tho trouble is over ; hut the slightest appearance of its renewal will bo a warrant for taking such measures as v fill make this hopo a certainty. Messrs. Jewett, Dent <k Bwktt liave given Ia legal opinion to the County Commissioners to the effect that township organisation in Cook County may bo abolished its In Ruy other county, in tho mimnor provided by tho Constitution. They further Rlftto thnt the County Commissioners Imvo no discretion in tho matter, rmd thnt, upon receiving Uto poll. tiouH in tho form mid number of signers pro. Bcribod lay law, it will bo lUolr duly to submit the question to tho people to bo voted ou nl tho next election. Tho opinion is to tho effect Hint, if townihip organization bo abolished, Cook County will not fall under the government of throe Commissioners, as in other counties whorl township organization does not exist, but will bo governed by tho County Hoard of fifteen Commissioners, as now. Having given this opinion ns to tho law, the throe legal goutlMnen earnestly oppose tho abolition of townihip organization as “unfortunate and ill-tittied," aud as a great mistake. They ar gue that the proper remedy U that tho voters should take a more active part in the elec tious. That had men are in oflko is no argn. ment. they say, for abolishing tho system, and they think the interests of tho towns outlying tbo city would be seriously injured by tbo change. A FAHOLE3S SERPENT. Among tho most conspicuous of tho do fender* of tho institution of slavery, and most virulent in hostility to all who dared oppose it, wna Henry A. Wise, of Virginia. He Ims already passed out of men’s recollections, save of the handful who were part of that historical past to which ho belongs. In hia day noon thundered fiercer denunciation of tho opponents of slavery ; none painted in more lurid hues tbo awful doom that would await them and befall tho country were it molested. Ho was nu orator of tho typo of those days, eloquent in epithets, in reckless, illogical assertions vehemently reiterated, in coarse personalities for which, if called to account, ho promptly responded with a chal lenge. Ho was, In short, a representative Southern statesman of tho school which ruled tbo Republic in thnt era. If ever ho is talked about now, it is as men talk about other statesmen long gathered to their fathers, and most mou would give the date of his as at least a dozen years ago. Now, however, ho suddenly appears like some supernatural apparition. Tho occidental suc cess of tho Democratic party last year bos resurrected many skeletons, and political corpses, nnd Hip Van Winkles, and among them is Henry A. Wise, who Ims mysteri ously tnrued up In Washington as counsel in a contested election. Since lost ho figured in earthly matters and was known of men, timos and men have changed, but ho remains hot-headed, dogmatic, and venomous, still full of tho haughty insolence of the slave driver nnd tho rebellious sentiments of tho Confederate conspirator against the liberties of bis country. As might have boon ex pected, this old serpent took this his first opportunity to display his old vonom, which is nil tho moro pitiable in that tho serpent has lost his fangs and is harmless. In his ar gument ho wandered away from his brief to assail tho Greeley party nnd its operations in Virginia, nnd in tho course of his tirade vented his vonom likewise upon Mr. Greeley in his allusions to John Brown, whose death warrant ho signed, and whoso death lies at his door and seems to weigh upon him like a frightful incubus which ho cannot shake off. Upon this subject tho rcsarrected serpent said: Thero was no tlmo between Jonw Baowrt's sentence md execution tint, If bis friends could bavo brougbl me the living Obeklet, 1 would not have exchanged John Brown for him, tod that, Andhkw Jaokbon- Uke, t would have taken tha responsibility of causing him to b« hanged Id Jolt* Brown's place. It would haro been a desirable vicarious offering of the Insti gator for tbo victim of the highest crime. Tho first question which will suggest Itself to the render of this rather remarkable al though harmless venom is, Why does ho single out Mr. Greeley, who is dead and gone, when Beecher, and Garrison, and Phillips, and Foster, and numerous other leading Abolitionists of tboso days, still live ? | Why docs ho single out Sir. Greeley for ' hanging, rather than any other man who was determined that tho infernal system of own ership and traffic in man should cease, and had tho courage to openly express that determination ? It would not have been difficult for him to find instances. There were millions of those men, and thousands of them wont directly into tho South ami ex pressed that opinion ; and not only expressed it, but put it into practical operation, and with sword, and gun, and cannon, forever de- | stroyed tho accursed system and emanci pated tho black man from that bondage of which Wise was the champion. The venom ous utterances of this virulent dotard now show that tho men who wont South and freed tho black made one mistake in not banging Wise himself. Tills will probably be the lost appearance at the National Capital of this champion of tho black era of slavery. At this juncture his venom will excite for him neither ani mosity nor contempt, nor oven that pity which is lower than contempt. It will servo, however, to mark the progress that Ims been undo in twenty years. As for Wise himself, notwithstanding tho prominent part in affairs ho ployed before the War, he will find no place in history save as tho Governor of Vir ginia who signed tho death-warrant of John Brown. While future ages will venerate the latter as a hero who gave his life to tho liber ty of tho slave, they will execrate tho former os his murderer. Tbe religious tiut at ft&lonlca, a cltv lo Eu ropean Turkey, at tbo bead of.tbo gulf of tbo mmo name, and having a population of 70,000 ‘people, of wbom 20.000 are Christians, will not bo calculated to help the cause of Turkey la bor cootUct mill the Herzegovinians. Tbo riot to bare arisen from tbo detormtuatlou of tbo Christians that a young girl who had become converted to Mohammedanism should not go over to that faith. Bhe was foicibly taken from her Turkish friends by the Greek Christians, whereupon a hot arose of very serious dimen hlouh. lu the course of which both the French and German Commit] were killed by (bo frenzied Mohammedans, notwithstanding the efforts of tbo Governor to protect them, liotb French and Gorman war vessels have sailed to tialouica, and there Is little doubt that they will uecure a very thorough reparation, if nut • very thorough vengeance, for tbo murder of their otllcial representatives. It shows very clearly the cruet and bloody charac ter of tbo Turk when involved iu religious com plications, ami, as tpo questions at issue be tween the Turks and tbo Herzegovinian insur gents are largely of a religious character, tbo bloody denouement of tbo Balonica hot Is a los bou which will be heeded by the Great Powers la their dealings with Turkey.

Mass-Meeting of the Strike™ at Sack's Hall —Portlier Troubles Threatened To-Day. As was predicted by The Tribune, tbo lumber* tbovora yesterday morning precipitated a riot. aud for a time created a reign of terror In tbo southwest portion of tbo city, though, fortunate ly, no one was killed. A riot is the same every where. On ouo aide is the unorganized mob, while on the other are either a disciplined police or militia, or both. A mob, no matter what Its numbers mav ho, stand hut litllo chance along side a well-disciplined body of men of even small proportions. Tho rioters yesterday morning numbered well into 3,000. A motly, dirty, and queer jjaug. A mass of Ignorant Bohemians, Polos, Gormans, "Low Dutch,” aud Irish, who could speak little except their own language. Mon, who io their ignor ance wore misled by tho blatherskite Commanists, who, having been driven away from tboir re spective countries, como to a free soil only to brood revolution and disaffection among tho working-classes. Tho Polos and Bohemians are an easy-going, ignorant lot of men, who be lieve everything that is told them In their native tongue. Tho Impression has gained currency that a demaud had boon made upon tho lumber dealers to pay tho “ shovers" $1.75 per day. This is not a fact. Tub Tuidunb nos heretofore given tbo true cause of tbo troubles. On Mon day of last week, Air. S. K. Martin reduced hta men from SI.SO io $1.33 a dsy, which caused thorn to promptly leave his place, and, gathering with them an array of Idlers, ready for any mischief, soon drove the laborers away from a number of yards. The trouble thus caused was bridged over afterwards, lu a nuuuer only. What really csuiod the disturbance and bo much W-foellug, la the remark of a man named Carpenter, of the Klrby-Carpentcr Company, who said that calico and oat-meal were cheap, and tbo u iiioTers* ” wives could wear calico, and they could live on oat-meah This little a;«cch was published in the Timtt, and translated into tho German and Scan dinavian papers, and of course made TUB PRETEXT FOR TROUBLE. White the remark was nut called for, the better class of lumbermen feel that the Tidies had no right to pub lish U, as it caused much bad blood, Aiior It was resolved upon to piy no less than $1.60 a day, U was supposed that everything would quietly settle down and the men would go to work for the price. In this respect most of the yard proprietors are very indeiwmlont. There are but few receiving os the season not fairly opening until after tho i6 Aftertho men found they had gained their point they felt considerably elated. At tills Juncture tb« Communist leaders, thinking that (bey had. found their time, Jumped to the front and told tho men they had succeeded lu intimi dating the bossoa, and tho press aud all they had to do now was to demand $1.76 and $3, and It would not bo refused. If it was. they should organize aud shoot down any man who worked for less, or any roan who attempted to tnko thuir places. This was tho platform laid down, aud no alternative allowed. Tbo bosses, however- wore ntt conferred with. As slated in yes terday's Triucnb. the men held a meeting on Sunday, end there resolved upon bload or $1.75 a day. This Journal gave fair warning of what was coming, hut no one could have foreshad owed tho Immense number of men who took part lu yesterday's riot. Precaution must have been taken during tho night by tuo notors for their action iu the morning. They piled up atones on Latlm and Loomis streetfl and along tho railroad on Twenty-second. These they intended for missiles to carry on their work, TUE FUN COMMENCES. At about 7 o'clock the mob commenced to gather from all direction*. The ranks swelled in numbers very fast, until at 7:15 over 2,W0 men had formed en mssso and commenced to move eastward in a solid body It should ho taken into consideration that over half of this rabbis were loungers, who have no work to do, a majority of them being termed “dock-loafers.” It was the intention of this immense, yelling mob to sweep everything before it. At about 7:510 o’clock they commenced to move. They first called at the mill of Hair ii Odiouo, on Twenty-second street, between Loomis and Laflln. Here they cumiwlled the men to quit. By this time Hurst Veioy, oftho Hiumanßlruet Btallou, had tele graphed to Beret Hickey for assistance. He then went out with his own squad, numbering some fifty men. to grapple with the rioters. He massed bis force near the corner of Loomis and Twenty-second streets. At this point the mob attacked the men at work at Lange’s mill. Btouca, bricks, baudy-blUlea, and other missiles, were used In remarkable quantities. Every rioter bad a stone in each band, and every mo tion would sby VAI or 400 at the police, who dodged thorn with commendable alacrity. It was now ulu and luck. Tho mob was swelling in proportions, snd Ibey seemed to have the field to them solves. They felt emboldened by ths handful of po lice which appeared before them, and they thought no more were coming, aud that they could sully wipe out the Ulnmiu street squad. A CHARGE. Tho rioters found thatthey wore mistaken lathis. They were booting, yolllug, snd throwing stones, and defying tbs police, sudmovlugouPoud&ltoper's mill, corner of Lstltn snd Twenty-second. By this time 'BergusnUVesey, and O'Donnell deployed thoir force aud determined that s charge upon tho mob should bomsdo. It was a terrible odds.—2.oUo against fifty men,—but the oua waa unorganized, aud the other tolerably well disciplined. It was now about h:3O, and a charge was mado on tho mass of rioters, They buried stones end bricks, hut they fell short of tbeir aim. Thun Sergeants O’Donnell and Voiey ordered the men to draw their revolvers, and fire into tlie alb. The Sergeants fired first—into the air—hut some of tho men shot lower, and a result waa that some Bohemians suddenly sat down on tho grass, but soon got up again. Such a scattering as now ensued was never before seen or heard of. The 3,000 rioters fled in every direction. A flock of wild antelope never ran swifter. The poKco were now masters of the sit uation for the time being. REINFORCEMENTS. The force tent Vo aaalat Hergt. Veaey amounted to About VO men, In charge of Capt*. EUla, Johnaon, •ud Dudley, Bergta.

Instead of the rioters going to their homes quietly, they LINGERED ABOUND BALOONB, and gathered m knots, boro and there, discussing t> , situation.
