SOMETHING ABOUT lIF.lt BENEFIT AT THU APEI.PItI. Som* statement" are made In connection with the late benefit of Mrs. Hilly Maiming at the Adel phi Theatre which rofiecl severely bn Mr. C. W. Higdon, one of the alleged proprietors, and If they are true.—and there eccm* to bo no reason to doubt them,—that gentleman must hear thconnaof taking the widow's mile and submit to the uttermost condemnation of Hie public In general and the dramatic nml mimical profession in particular. Last Sunday Mrs. Manning was tendered a benefit by her friends, and the Adelphl was engaged. The house whs crowded, and flic generous people who contributed toward Hie worthy object, rested on the assurance that Hie beneficiary would be In re ceipt of u fair bonanza. The wife of the late lamented minstrel was surprised Monday morning when she called at the hox-otllcn and learned Hint her share, nflor deducting expenses, was S»T. Mrs. Manning is nn esteemed member of the dra matic profession, and she was at once Impressed with tho belief, based upon her experience in such matters, that somcllilng was wrong, Bhe therefore railed for u bill of Hems, whlcu she received yesterday, printing anti advertising are pul down at $lO2, and house rent SflnO, making $lO2 hi all. Tho receipts of the performance were given as Slf.fl. Deducting Urn former total from the latter ami $Ol are lest. Higdon ot.ered Mrs. Manning only $47, notwithstanding. Ho was sub sequently heard to slate Hint the receipt* of the bouse last Sunday night wcreSiO*. which would leave Mr*. Manning ?h74. This matter demand.* the fullest explanation from the Auelphl manage ment. nml the friends of the widow propose to see , her protected in the premise*. ANOTHER DEFAUETER. THE TREASURER OF ST. GEORGE’S SOCIETY. The celebration of the Queen's birthday in this city was slightly sullied by the announcement Hint the cx-Trensarerof St. George's HcnevolentSocfcly wa* a defaulter, and perhaps an absconder.— another demonstration of the aphorism that although the head of a sovereign often uneasy He*. Ho' head of Hm loval subject i* generally in a great deal worse condition. At Hie last annual election, Mr. A. Booth was elected Treasurer, and in tho course of time made a demand upon Mr. Hichard Chester, the old Treasurer, but wa* pul off from time to time. Mr. Booth’* luiHncss required hi* presence on the Pacific Coast, ami n* hi* absence was protracted, the trustee* made a demand upon Cheater for tho fundn. They also were refused, and it was even hinted that Chester was n defaulter. Investigations followed, uiul U was learned that Chester was absolutely worthless, us were also his bonds, ami that in all probability the funds of the Society, amount ing tu f. 1.000, were long since squandered. A special meeting was held last evening to consider the matter, hut inasmuch a* the newly-elected Treasurer was tho only person authorized to succeed Chester, they contented themselves by appointing a committee to investigntu Mr. Chester; And then after that was done u mem ber hinted that perhcpH there was no Chester to In vestigate, and lurlher Inquiry developed thu fact that most of Mr. Chester * property is in ills wife's name, nnd Hint ho himself bus not been in town for several days. Chester formerly had a very excellent business in lamps and oils at the western end of Lake street bridge, hut since the fire it has dwindled Into noth ing. and for some time he has goucially been con sidered ft bankrupt. OBITUARY, HIIIAM M. CHA3U, n well-known lawyer, and for many years past one of the Masters In Chancery of the Circuit Court, died yesterday at his residence, No. 184 West Van Huron street, from the consequence, of a stroke of paralysis. Sir. Chase was born in Essex County, New York, in IbftO, where he was admitted to the Har. Subsequently he wa* elected District Attor ney of New York State, and also delegate! to the Judicial Convention which noml- noted Judge C. L. Allen for the Supremo Court of New York. Hu enmo here in IKVj. and went Into the practice of tho law with ft Mr. Munson. He was afterwards appointed Master oftliu Hecorder's Court by Judge Van Huron, lu 18U8 reappointed by Judge McAilMer, and subse quently appointed Ma-ler in Chancery of the Cir cuit Court, which last position ho held at tne time of his death. Sir. Chase held u high position in Ids profession, and was universally esteemed for his uprightness in the discharge of his official duties, ami for his uniform geniality toward bis brother lawyers. MltS. FRANK I.AWI.OR. The many friends of Aid. Frank Lawlor will be allied to hear of the death of his wife, which oc urrrd yesterday morning after a painful and pro racled illncis of over seven months. The lady ,’as very highly esteemed, und will be deeply lourneu by her large circle of acquaintances. The iDieiiil takes place to-morrow at lU:ftO o'clock rum the late residence, ft?>2 West Taylor street, to lie Church of the Holy Family, und thence by cars j Calvary. THE COUXTY BUILDING. Janie* Sullivan made an attempt yesterday to se cure ids release on a writ of habeas corpus, bnt signally failed, und was returned to Ids cell. Tho nirge against him is abduction. Slate's Attorney Heed was suddenly called tc Dexter Park yesterday afternoon to witness ft bai loon ascension or something of tho kind, and hit chair was filled by tho Hev. Florence McCarthy, who did the best he could toward the conviction u a small line of criminals. The report that the much-tried Kill Wray had been drowned is not credited around the Criminal Court. Ami this brings to mind the fact that, not withstanding his bond was declared forfeited some time since, no action has been taken against Ids bondsmen. The Slierllf says that lie has failed during Ids term of olllce to collect h single dollar un forfeited bunds, so the case of Wruy is uo ex ception to the rule. A note was sent to Tub Tinman a -few days ago inquiring about tbo exact condition of the building fund of the county. A reporter has looked the matter up, ami finds that of the $1,201), OUO tire bonds authorized lo be issued in JK7I for building purposes, oil of the bonds have been disputed of except S'f.’o,ooo, and are now on the muted. Fif ty thousand dollars of these, It appears, nave been taken up and canceled, and some SIIO,OOO now re mains to tbc crcdltof the fund in the County Treas ury, which is likely to bo absorbed by accumulating bills in tlm next ten days. The prospect !s that the bunds unsold will bu disposed of during the year, and will go toward the erection of (he new Court- House. More of the Commissioners were around yrstcr lay than hail been for several days. It was not, lowevcr, because they were feeling good, for such mis not the case, tin the other hand, they met to euson together, audio quietly canvass the slum lon. Mr. Holden was among the mure dejected md angry, but lie attributed bis condition of mind nore to what be claimed to be a misrepresentation in there c olumns than to any fear Iks bad of the Grand Jury. He bad been made to nay that be lud never received any goods from Penulut's store, whereas be really said that ho had never received miy goods from the store of Forsythe A Co., a cor rection which Is cheerfully made to appease his anger mid put him right before the public. |{« denies that lie ever got any of the county goods at the Insane Auylnin or Urn County Huspltul. tih: uitAM) juuv. , The Grand Jury yesterday resumed Its Inquiries into county crookedness, and bad before it Messrs. Heurdtdey, Carpenter, McCleary, and Fisher. all of whom have been In sonic way connected w ith Peri etal lu bis dealings with Hie county, and Messrs. Holden ami Übdmp, county contractors. The ob ject of recalling them since tlm indictment of Perl obit was understood to bear more directly upon tho relations of the members of Hie County hoard to Periolatnnd Kimberly than anything else, which, if thu importance of Hie testimony In to ho meas ured by Its length, must have been exceedingly valuable. Mr. Carpenter, lute shipping-clerk for Forsythe it Co., when emerging (rum the room, said hi) bad bud a sev ere time, and lud been foil ed to admit a great deal of crookedness for Hie reason Hint Hid Jury appeared to Know everything and was inclined lo Use him to corrolwratu other wit nesses. Fisher, a bookkeeper fur Perlolut, upon being dismissed, unbosomed himself lo Commis sioner Carroll, taking far more pains lo tell him what he had kept from the Jury limit what he bad given to it. t)u the whole, the evidence taken was regarded us full of interest, and very damaging to the hoard, or certain members of it. To-day. Mr. Smith, the man who putupafoOO check to be used with the Commissioners to secure u lightning-rod contract, will appear before tbo Jury lu repeat Ids story told lo the lust Jury. His testimony will prove Intensely Interesting to Me- Cntlrey uitd hailitr;\Vllkereoii. if It does not icad lo their indictment. It Is reported, too. that com plaint will be lodged against Dunham, who runs a saloon un Clark street, fur keeping a gambling house. Tlie witnesses mentioned in connection with the complaint arc A. 8. Trade, one of tbo editors of the Titnfi, Aid. Hildreth, Cl-AllL Cor coran, ami other city and county ollicluls.

About noon yctrrdny De tective Klllntt spotted the two of them just ns they were alKint to enter the Tivoli by the alley door, ami at the same time Drew recognized the ofiieer, nml. plucking Id* companion by the sleeve, slunk <>lf In «n opposite direction. Elliott returned to the station and procured Hie assistance of Detec tive* Simond* ami McGarlglc, and the three of them, after beating around for some time, started the game at Mansur's saloon on Dearborn street. Elliot raptured Whit ney. who i* better known aa “One-Armed George," lint the other fellow ran away, yinimids and Me- Gnrlgle follovvcdflnd treed the game in a building on Slate street, near Monroe, which the fellow hud entered, hoping to find a rear escape and thu* elude h!" pursuers.

The two fellows were locked up In the Central Station to await a requisition from Wis consin. Last night flddfd another to the long list of stab bing ntTrav*. and perhajs* another to the array of murders, 'that have taken place within the present year. This time the culprit is a strong, though good-for-nothing, young Irishman named Frank Mianley. and the victim Is a young colored man named Louis Napoleon, residing on Fourth avenue, near Harrison street. The two met In«t evening In Michael Mlley's sa loon. No. 148 We-t Harrison street, and after some rather sullen expressions engaged In n dispute regarding color. The negro asserted he was ns good ns a drunken, poverty-stricken white, which so enraged Mmnley that he violently assault ed Napoleon and heat him badly. The negro fled for refuge to a candy store u few doors away, bnt was closely followed by Slunilcy, who, upon com ing up to him, stalihed with a largo pocket knife. Napoleon fell, and Shanley run away. The wounded man was taken to the ohlce of a medical man, I)r. Hockley, by name, who was inhuman enough to refuse to do anything for him. Another doctor was visited with a like result, tint at last the Good Samaritan whs found In the person* of Dr. Hanks and wife, residing at the corner of Harrison and Desnlnlnes streets. The negro had by this time fainted several times from loss of blond, and if his life is spared Dr. Hanks Is to tic thanked for It. The wound—aft-inch deep gash in the right side of the abdomen—was dressed, and the injured man was taken to his home In a very low condition. The police are searching fnr Shanley, and have ev ery hope of capturing him. Hu is a noted rnfllan and blackguard, and Is said by those who heard the quarrel to have hud no cause for so violent an assault. CASUALTIES. "WESTERN FLOODS.
