Mr. Murray moved a substitntethat the committee on District officers consult the Governor and ascer tain what officers can be dispensed with without det riment to the public service, and also that the com mittee on ways and means wait on the Governor nn<l ascertain how the expenses can be further decreased. Mr Dyer urged that the original resolution be adapted, acd, quoting from the Governor's message, said that he bad called attention to this subject, and it war proper for the House now to inquire how his sntrgestions can best be carried into effect. Mr. Brown thought that there should be no deli cacy on the subiect, and favoted the idea of Mk mat ter being placed in tbe bands of a committee. Mr. Olsgett said that he was satisfied from inter \ lews that lie had had with ths Governor that he would cheerfully take tbe subject in hand M r Shepherd favored the original resolution, and thought if it wat passed they would accomplUu the object. Mr. Murray sail that if the information was asked direct, the Governor would report the name* ot gen tlemen who would be looked on a? having tilled sine cure positions. Mr. Smoot urged that they were obliged to cm down from the word "go." The Controller's esti mate of ths expenses is 02.214.400, and the estimated revenue from tazss, at tbe highest rate uud'-r the law, is il^lOj?J0, and it is necessary to re:r.-nch. The Governor is the proper party?the responsible head of the government?and it was his duty to iu forrn the House how they coald cat down sonid of the expenses. Mr. Murray r"m*rked that his rssolntion went farther It was not only the cutting off of otiicers that was r*<inired, but other expenses should be re duced, and he had therefore included work for tbe committee on ways and means in hi" resolution.

This Afternoon In the Court in General Term, I General Albert Pike mad* the concluding ar gument n the cane of Wallach a?t. Van Ris wick. 1 his cam comes from the Equity Court, and the Vact* are as follows: The complainants, R. 8. Wallach, C. M. Wallach, atKl J. M. C. .Wallarh, Mate, that on the 25U> day or Septem ber, 1854, their father, Mr. Charles S. Wallach, executed his promissory note to Henry N. Lans dale for *5,000, pa v able fire years after its date, aad on the same day he and his wife, Mrs. Susan L. Wallach, executed a deed of trust to Mr. James M. Carlisle, as trustee for the prop erty now in litigation, subs. 15, 16, and 17, square 533, fronting on Indiana avenue, with certain other pieces of property, to secure the payment of the note to Mr. Lansdale. That on the 9th day of June, 1862, a sale was made by Mr. Carlisle of the other pieces of property em braced in said deed of trust, with application by liim of the proceeds arising therefrom, being 94.500. as a credit on the note. That on the 1st day of December, 1862. the defendant, Van RiswickP purchased from Lansdale the note and security of the trust deed. That on the 29th day of July, 18?3, a decree of condemnation was entered agasnst the proper ty in controversy by reason of Mr. Wallach > continuing to be, from and after the 17 th day of July, 1872, an officer in the army of the Con federate States. That on the 9th day of Sep tember, 1863, a sale was made in pursuance of the decree, and the property purchased thereat by defendant Van Riswick. Price, 12,300. That on the 3d dav of February, 1*166. Mr. and Mrs. Wallach executed a mortage with piw.sr of sale, o* certain terms, on the property in controversy, to defendant Van Kiswick to se cure the payment of an alleged indt l.tedn -ss of *12,000. That on the 17th dav of August, 18?>7, defendant Van Riswick sold tne property under the mortgage, which was struck ort to J. J. ?Johnson, Esq., as attorney for defendant Van Riswick. at a bid of ?11,o*jd? the sale being ob jected to by M r. Wallach. That ontheivfdiy of February, 1*72, Mr. Wallach died, and the deed of trust to Mr. Carlisle remains iu t\ill force, being uncancelled. The complainants tiled a bill for a discovery and an account, and to recover from Van Ris wick such sums a-< may be found due them. To this bill the defendant, by his counsel, Messrs. T. J. Purant and T. A. Lambert, tiled a demurrer that the said complainants have not, by tbeir bill, made snch a case as entitle tlnm, In a court of equity, to any discovery from the defendant, or any"relief agaiust him. The case was then argued on the demurrer, atid the court (Judge Wylie) allowed the same and made a decree dismissing the bill, and from tills decision an appeal was taken. The principal point made by the eomplain ahts is that Mrs. Wallach having joined with her husband in executing the trust deed of September 28th. 1854, to Mr. Carlisle, and that trust deed remaining outstanding and uncan celled at. the time she executed with him the ?mortgage of February 3d, 1866, and at the time of the sale of August 17, 1*?7, under that mort gage. she had no dower right to dispose of, or which the defendant could acquire at siid mortgage sale.
