Ificcessful Landing of Gen* Walker in Nicaragua* ATTEMPTED SEIZURE OF THE FASHION, & c., ic., Ac. Nbw Orleans, Dec. 12, 1857. The steamship Empire City, from New York 2d tout, via Havana, is whore at the Balize, but will probably be got off to-night. She connected at Havana with the steamship Star of the West, from Aspinwall, with the California nails and about two and a quarter millions in trea sure for New York. The mails per Empire City will not he up to-night, bat in their absence we have the following abstract of ber news, which is highly important, by the Balize telegraph line:? General Walker, who it will be recollected took liia departure from Mobile bay on the 13th ult., in the steamship Fashion, landed at Punta Arenas, in Nicaragua, on the 25th November, with one hundred and fifty men. Not the slightest attempt was made to prevent the landing, and in fact the purpose of the expedition appeared to have not even been guessed. The United States sloop-of-war Saratoga was lying in the harbor, and the Fashion passed under her ?tern at full speed, with only ten men on deck. The whole party were landed at Scott's wharf. Gen. Walker had, it seems, sent fifty men up the rtrer by other entrances, before making his appear ance at Punta Arenas. After landing the expedition the Fashion took ber departure for Asp in wall, where, at the depar ture of the Star of the West, she was taking coal oa board. Commodore Paulding, of the United States frigate Wabash, attempted to seize her at Aspin. wall, but, on examining her papers, found them correct, and consequently could take no further steps against her. The British and American naval forces had sailed from Aspin wall for San Juan, and would very probably take part in the scenes in that vicinity, ?r at least prevent the landing of any more filibusters. It was supposed that the difficulties between Cos ta Rica and Nicaragua, alluded to iu previous ac counts, would be settled without a resort to hostile neamiree. The news from California by this arrival embrace t no points of special iuterest. The public wore much excited with regard to the seaworthiness of the Pacific mail steamers. The following vessel* had arrived at San Francis co from Atlantic port- since the departure of the steamer of tue Stb Novemlier, viz.:? Sierra Nevada, Aurora, Old Colony, (ioddess.

Mr. Buchanan is already opening the eyes of mem ben of Congreiw to the fact that in him they have a President who, having a mind of his own, has the frankness and manliness to avow it, and adhere to hw views despite all outside demonstrations. In fact the President is developing a trait in his character for which he has not heretofore had credit ? firmness and decision. In this respect, since he has been in the executive chair, he more nearly approaches the JackFonian standard than any President since that day. Mr. McKeon and Mr. Stanton have already dw covered it; and a few more of your New York office holders will be apt to participate in this species of information, unless they can show a clean bill ot health. On Thursday a deputation of New York members and others called on the President, principally to talk over the position of the New York office holders, and the rumor (at that time, but since a fact,) that Mr. McKeon'a removal was con templated. Mr. C , an amiable gentle man, but somewhat inexperienced as a politician, undertook the task of deprecating the President's wrath against the late District Attorney. Mr. C. good naturcdly suggested that the election of Mayor was not viewed by some democrats as a party mat ter, and that perhaps Mr. McKeon, in the active part he took against the democratic nominee, was not aware that the President felt any interest in it. "Sir " said Mr. Buchanan, "it is useless for you to h?v 'anything to me on the subject; my mind is made np. A municipal contest in the great com mercial metropolis of this country cannot be con founded with the bickerings of a village or hamlet. It wa? a political contest, and a? such 1 will permit no officeholder of mine to set an example of disor ganization and violation of party rules. As for the plea of ignorance you setup for Mr. McKeon, it is not sustained by the facta. He knew very well I had written a letter expressive of my views on the subject, but because. 1 supi>ose, it was addressed to Mr Richard Schell, he saw fit to act contrary to my wishes." Mr. C. replied that he only appeared as a mutual friend, and he supposed the would like to know the feeling of the de legation and have their endorsement. The President at once straightened himself up: "Sir, lie rejoined, "1 alone am responsible for the removal and appoint ment of my officials. 1 do not shrink from that re sponsibility. nor do I desire to share with anv one a duty which my office and the oath I have taken 1m ?,,M's on me. 1 have decided upon removing Mr. McKeon. and I shall not hesitate to remove any offi cer of the government who, ii? my judgment, is guilty of insubordination.'' The effect of this decla ration on the bystanders was electric. It at once proved that In Mr. Buchanan there was different material from poor Pierce. . . The conversation then was directed to the choice of a suaaessor to Mr. McKeon. The President said he would tender the position to Judge Sutherland, H,, a* to publicly mark his reasons for removing McKeon. Mr. James T. Brady's name was sug gested. Mr. Buchanan remarked that he had no objection to Mr. Brady if that gentleman a friends could show he had actively exerted himself in Itebalf of the democratic nominee for Mayor. Ut course this ruled Brady out. , . A question was a?ked as to Rynders conduct during the election, and in such a manner as led to the inference that the Marshal would probably never reach the Senate, unless he could furnish some un doubted proof that he was among the faithful. 1 trust that any apparent impropriety in thus pub lishing an account of the interview will he more than compensated by the motive which leads to it. It is but proper that the people of the country should knew that the President is no puppet to be pulled back and forth by the -uncalled " leaders here; but a live nmn, who. having l?een elevated to the highest office in the gift of his country, is determined to act up faithfully to his oath and the requirement* of his position. ______ Washington. Dec. 12. 1M57. The Congre** Printing -Some Light upon the Subject, and upon the ljjbby Gambler*. The world outside of this city knows very little of he inside history of the recent struggle for the printing of the Honse of Rcpn-sentatives. It is generally and correctly understood that the printing is very lucrative, amlthoae so fortimate aatoaecure it can take care of themselves and their friends. But it Is not as generally known that the combination which defeated Wendell Is composed of an organized band of hungry fellows, who, after In vain offering to hell out their pretensions to Wendell, set to work and successfully joined the incongruous material representing their friends, and thus secured the whole plunder, which up to the last moment they had Wen willing to share with the old printer. The whole manoeuvring is disgusting in its details, and should of itself is1 a sufficient reason for a change in the mode of printing and the establishment of a government printing office. I^et us particularize. Steedman and Banks, who have been elected, are both adventurers, without a cent of money of their own- without any material necessary to do the printing and who are obliged to a ?k Wendell, the old printer, to do the work Tor them and share the ?profits. Steedman is from Ohio, where he was con nected at one time with some country pa|ier. When Mr. Buchanan was Inaugurated he was an early applicant for a bureau in Washington, but fail ing to get it he went home. There the peoi.te con nected with the Cincinnati Inquirer got hold of him and Induced him to be put forward ac a candidate for the public printing. A league was formed with Forney, and the support of Judge Douglas secured. Thus prepared, the parties presented themselves in Washington a week or two Wore the opening of the newiou and commenced their work. Meantime. Banks, a very young man- but a Vir ttinian. and a Ikihoiii friend of Rojcer A. Pryor, the conceited editor of the Richmond South was cast ing about for any "Way plunder which might be floating around. He liad been a candidate at the Laat Congress for Clerk of the House. The fact that a Southern man would be elected Speaker at this Con irrew rendered It certain that a Northern man would be selected for Clerk, so Mr. Banks. Micawber like, had to look alx?ut for something else to turn up. With the aid of l*rvor and some other hungry Virgi nians he succeeded in getting the pledges of a num ber of Southern men in his favor; for he It remarked, n ? po???n/. Southern representatives are only as a general thing rigidly honest when a person from their own section ia not the recipient of the large??e, Besides, office seeking is a chronic disease in Virginia. Thns all the Virginia members with the exception of Faulkner, went in for young Banks a Is-ardle-* boy. who has never done the slightest service for his party, and who* greatest exuloit was the presentation at Tammany, by him. of a cane which had been presented to Brooks for his assault on Sumner, and for which even Tanimany-not con sidered remarkably nice -deservedly hi wed him. But neither Sti-edman or Banks separately had strength enough to secure the nomination and they, therefore, n-paiatelv jwoposed to Wenrtell to sell themselves and their friends for #20,000 apiece. Wendell, too sanguine by half, declined the offer. They, therefore, combined their forces, and Wendell was laid out in short metre. Now Wendell, whilst public printer, has succeeded in establishing the fine?t and largest printing office in the country, at a cost, it Is said, ot nearly two hundred thousand dollars. The whole amount ot the printing for the House, exclusive of the cost of paper ! tor the last Congress, was about $400,000, and an equal amount for the Senate. Bv an arrangement with the Senate printer. Judge Nicholson, formerly editor of the I'ntoti, and now a Senator elect from Tennessee, Wendell also executed the Senate printing, and. hy combining the work, was enabled to make it pro4 table. But for anv man to ?ro to the expense of buying a printing office at a cost of t'JflO .000. In order to execute the House printing for two years, wonhl be certain ruin. At the end of the time he would find all his profits more than swallowed np in an investment of old types and printing presses, which he onuld only riispose of at a *aorifice. which must necessarily place him on the wrong side of the ledger. For this reason Steedman and Banks have !>een obliged to make term* with Wendell, and so the only effect Iim been to divide the plunder amongst a larger number of cormorants than before, and Las will I l*s seen to In crease the probable sum which will he wasted in printing useless numbers of still more worthless H The nnhHs printer, nnder the law which established n suiterintendcnt of public printing, has nothing to do with the purchase of the paper nscd. He receives a certain specified sum per page for all matter set up. and so much a thousand for the number of pages piintctl IT* pricc? were fixed a pretty tho rough investigation, and, it fa said, are not higher generally than ia paid for similar work in New York; hut where the same printer does the same work for both house**, he charges each with the coat of netting up the type? and here in one great source of profit. It it) auto said that a large profit is made on the " long " numbers of copies printed. It is for this reason that the friends of the .public printer upon every occasion try to get the greatest number of copies of every doctynent printed; and hence the va.-t accumulation of worthlesH documents which cumber the rooms of the Capitol, Hood the country, and give the grocers and needle and thread store* of Washington such an inexhaustible quantity of cheap wrapping paper, in the shape of useless public | documents. A committee to investigate the present system of public printing has been raked, and they have it in their power to inaugurate an improvement by which a great leak in the public treasury will he stopped, and at least one sourre of corruption dried up. Let them report in favor of the establishment of a gov ernment printing office. There is no good reason why the government should not do its own printing. Government builds its own ships, makes the muskets and munitions of war, erects its public buildings and does its own clerical duties. As well might the argu ment be used that the work in the departments shall be done by private individuals ? that the duties of the several bureaus should be let ont by contract to irresponsible parties? that the navy yards, arsenate and workshops of the government should all be abandoned, as to pretend that government should not do its own printing. Let a national printing of fice be established, and the motive for oraering vast quantities of useless documents will cease, the cor rupting bait of what may now be justly termed an eleemosynary fund for broken down party hacks will be withdrawn, and at last government will have its work done creditably and equal to the public print ing of other countries. England and France both have their national printing offices, and the system there works well. The United States, on the con trary, leaves it at the mercy of private cupidity, and the works generally are as disgracefully executed as their contents are trashy and discreditable. Under a system of government printing we would hear no more of such unmeaning trash as "Gillis' Chile Re port"? a quarto work in two volumes, containing not a single item of valuable information, interspersed with colored pictures of parrots and monkeys, each one of which cost the government almost enough to stock a managerie. Wilkes' and Perry's rej>orts, though a little better than Gillis' unmitigated trash, are also instances of wasteful extravagance for the benefit of the public printer. All this would cease when it wa* no longer the personal interest of any in dividuals to have the work done. A national printing office would at once take away the temptation. There is a strong feeling in Congress at this time in favor of its establishment; and there is no doubt, if the Herald will press the subject prominently and continuously upon the public attention, that its efforts will be crowned with success. Meantime, mark the members who propose to print large num bers of documents, and it will be found in every instance that they represent the interest of the pub lic printers, who thus manage to fteece the Treasury. RttralUng for the British Navy? Kidnapping American Citizens. The following particulars of an attempt made to compel an American seaman to enter the British navy were furnished us by two of his mates, named John Clarke and Henry McDonnell, who were his companions during a voyage from this port. James Doyle U a native of this country, and resided in New 1 ork for a period of eighteen months immediately preceding his shipping in the ship Ca roline, as seaman, on the 14th of last September. The Caroline was bound for Glasgow, and eight days after her arrival in that port, Doyle proceeded to a pnblic house in which the rendezvous is held for shipping sailors for the "British navy. Doyle went in for the purpose of having something to drink, and meeting with some of his acquaintances. Having called for some whiskey, the proprietor of the house informed him that he must pay for it l>efore he should put it to his lips, and. to make his words more em phatic. added an oath to the insulting olmervation. Upon Doyle's resenting the insult, tome sharp words followed, and the matter passed off for the time. A few evenings afterwards Doyle went ashore again, and was this time arrested by the police on a charge made by the landlord to the effect that he'was a de serter from the British navy and that he fully identi fled him as a sailor whom he knew to have been in the navy some twelve months before. Doyle was forthwith whirled away by the police to prison . where I he was kept for some days and then placed on board the receiving ship at Greenock? the principal naval station for the English fleet on the Scottish c<?ast. The last that his companions were able to learn of him was. that he expected to be sent to London in order to be tried for desertion, although, to the per sonal knowledge of the other two seamen, whose name* we have mentioned, he is entirely innocent of the charge, having actually hoarded in this city at the period it is alleged he was in the service of the British government. Clarke and McDonnell, being the only friends he had near him. represented the case to the American Consul at Glasgow, and also to Captain Lather, commander of the Carolin, but lw>1h these gentlemen took little notice of the matter, each stating that he could do nothing towards effect ing Doyle's release. Thus the matter stood when our informants left Glasgow James Doyle's fata being now, as it probably ever will continue to be, unknown. Is this a solitary case of this description? Affairs of Uie Central Park. WHAT COMMISSIONER ORKKN AND THK SI PEKIKTEN DKNT HAT. The Committee on Lands and Places of the Board of Aldermen met on Saturday -Alderman Wilson in the chair? to further investigate the affairs of the Central Park. Mr. Hooo declined answering any questions rela tive to the resolution referred to this committee on the 11th inst. He said he never asked parties inside of the Park to vote any particular way, n >r used any influence with the workingmen in regard to their political predilections. Avpksw G*n*, one of the Central Park Com missioners. said the first appropriation was $.10,000; that they had never had hot $W>,000; $58,000 had t?en paid to laborers and gardeners and none of it to salaried officers . $1 ,W0 has been paid for tools. We snpply the tools. They are purchased by the Executive Committee? Dillon, Buterworth and Gray. Miller delivers the tools. He is the property clerk. He is responsible for what becomes of them All bills must tie certified and properly passed the Audit in* Board and the Commissioners, and then I pay it. Twenty five thousand dollars have lieen appro priated for trees and plants. Me??rs. Hogg. Elliot and Graham are the Committee on Trees and Plants. Buildings have been taken from the Park and sold, the proceeds of the sale being deposited to the credit of the Commissioners. Every dollar drawn from the lank is signed by the Commissiohers and the Comp troller; their signature is actually necessary. The vouchers for payment la properly endorsed and tiled with the Comptroller. Tne lal*>rcra are employed by the superintendent, and if tfcey are derilect In duty he discharges them. The foreman makes an affidavit as to the amount of time the laborers are engaged. Messrs. Mcintosh and Miller pay the men. The Executive Committee are generally in the Park more than any other committee. Individual mem bers of committee^ are on the ground more than committees as bodies. There are from eleven to twehe hundred men employed on the Park now. The smallest number of men employed at a time was twenty: they were gardeners, tfnder the first appropriation about 700 men were employed; in get ting that appropriation $7/>00 was lost. It is the in dention of the Commissioners to keep as many men to work as possible. No single member of the com mission receives any compensation, but earh man is allowed $.100 for carriage hire, and not one of them has drawn a cent of it. There is a fortnight's pay due the men, which will exnaust the $12,000, ana then we cannot employ any more men until another appropriation. The cash on hand will be exhausted this payment; it might have been a week ago. He (Mr. Greene) never asked a man as to his vote. Mr. 0!.mst*a?, superintendent of the park, said there are 1.120 men employed; the lalstrers receive $1 a day. the foremen $<< per week, the stone break ers !i cents per cubic foot. The way they ascertain ed the amount of work done by stone breakers was by measurement. He desired that they too should have $1 per day. The man who made the lowest wages. 10 cents ji day, has returned and begged to be set to work a'gain , so he is now at work. There are many men making $1 a day breaking stone; the majority of the men breaking stone make $1 a day. When the Commission decided to give nine cents |>er nrhic foot they calculated the men could make a dollar a day. Nine cents a foot for breaking stone is higher wages than any one else pays, but our stone is broken smaller. Men are paid by the day when building wall; building wall will last all win ter. No political influence with men came under myobeervation. The committee tben adjourned , subject to tbe call pf tbe cbair. IMTE1EOT1HC PROM KANSAS.

" We shall see what we shall seo." [From the St. louts Democrat, Dcc. 0 ] IMPORTANT FBOM KANSAS. A gentleman who left Wyondott, Kansas Territory, on the 4th instant, reached this city yesterday morning, and says that just before starting for the East ho saw a l.aw fence paper of the 3d instant, which contained a proclu tnaiion from the acting Territorial Governor. Stanton, call ing for a meeting of the recently elected Territorial legis lature, to bo held at Iecompton on the 7th. This move ment is, no doukt, made to anticipate the proceedings of the self constituted provisional Governor, Calhoun. A letter from a merchant at Leavenworth states that should there be any interference with tho meeting of the free State legislature H will be the forerunner of hot work in Kansas. If tho information given above should provo correct it looks as if a eollision between the I'nited States authority uml the bravos of Calhoun might take place Mnrdeii In New York. LIST OF THOSE CNDKK SENTENCE OF DEATH AND CON FINED ON TBI! CHAKUE OK MlTKDEll. The ap|ialliiig increase of crime iu this city can not be more fully exemplified than by the fact that there are now confined in the city prison, on the charge of murder, und under sentence of death for that crime, a larger number of persons than has been known for several years. In order to give an idea of the numlter and character of these crime* we sub join brief sketches of the various cases:? TUB MtTtDKK OF POLICEMAN ANDERSON. The sentence of death having been passed by the Court upon Michel Cancemi. convicted on his second trial of the murder of Eugene Anderson, a member of the Fourteenth ward polios, there is no hope t hat he will eecape the penalty of the luw. He is con fined in cell No. U on the first fioor of the City prison. He seems to fully realize his situation and the fact i that bis life is to be forfeited as inevitable. His manner, however, is cheerful aud kind, aud there is nothing in his personal up|>earunce to indicate that be is a man wh? would be guilty of taking the life of a fellow being. He is visited al most daily by Padre Sanguinetti, an Italian priest he Wing a devotee of the Romish religion. Our re porter has obtained from an intimate friend of Can cemi, the following brief statement of his history.-? Michel ( "ancenii was born in the year 18l!?, at Palermo, in Sicily. His parents were in #<**1 cir cumstances and moved in a high circle among the Sicilian families. He was early placed under the tutelage of the l<e*t educational institutions of the Sicilies, aud was taught the usual branches studied by gentlemen's sons. When be became of age, ho entered into the busitie-sof a money broker, at which he continued for several years with good aocceiM, until the breaking out of the revolution- in IMS. Atthe|io pular uprising in the Sicilies in favor of republican ism, be took u prominent stand in favor of the re i public, and so highly did he commend himself by I hi* social status and his intelligence and bravery. that he was made n captain of the Municipal Guard I of Palermo, and during sul*se<|uent struggles he dis Unguished himself by his bravery and judgment; but when the reaction again ->t republicanism took place, and the authorities had regained their power, he was obliged to save himself by Might, and in I860 he came to this city Irorn Palermo; hut after remaining a few days, be Left for New Orleans, where be en gaged in dealing in fruits for nearly a year. Find ing his ignorance of the language a liar to the sue few be desired to achieve, he took passage for Mar seilles, in France, where be remained several months, living on the means he bad been enabled to save on bis tiight Irom Palermo. He then went to Genoa, and began business as a dealer in fruits, wines and provisions, where he met with fair success. He remained in Genoa until 1M3. At that time, a Proclamation was issued by the King of the Two Sicilies, commanding all political fugv tires front Sicily who were tb< n rem.iining in any of the Italian States to leave Italy, under severe penal ties in case of non-compliance; and as by the comity of the States this proclamation was acouie*ced in by the other Italian rulers, Cancemi liad no resource left but to leave the country. At that time a large number of Italian refugees were shipped on Iswrd of a vessel and sent to New -York. Ad attempt was made to force him to leave the country on that re? I. He refused, however, on the ground that be had means of his own. and was not compelled to acc ept of a pa?<age under condi tions *o degrading to what he conceived to be his dignity as a man. He accordingly took fsissage on board of a packet shin, in the cabin, and arrived in this city a little over tour years since, lieing joined at (teuoo by N'uuzia Km met i. who for fourteen years hsd been living with him in the relation of a wife, though not legally married. Soon after ar riving, seeing that his limited means would soon tie exhausted, except he availed himself ??f some indus trial occupation , lie made an application, through an Italian bookbinder. who was employed in the es tablishment of Mr. Shaw, on Fulton street, for an opportunity to learn the bn*inc?? lieing highly re commended, Mr. Shaw gave him employment, at which he continued, with but few interruptions, *nd these mused by the slackness of work, until the time of his arrest for the rnUrder of Anderson. The witnesses for the defence, upon his trial, testified to Cancemi's uniform good character, to his prover bial industry and attentivene?? to business, be being always the first to arrive at the shop in the morning and the In ?t to leave it at night, and often taking work with him to hi" house to do in the night. He still denies, emphatically, his guilt . though ap preciating the fact that he must forfeit his life. He holds to his original statement, that he went early in the morning, as was his usual custom, to Centre market to purchase provision*, and was midway across Grand street, on the w?>st side of Centre, when the nl?tol was fired and Anderson fell; and that, frightened by the occurrence, he ran rapidly to his home, taking the course through <>raml and down ram. in the confusion of ideas which presided in his mind at the moment. W hen his counsel were con sulting as to the line of defence that slionld he followed in his case, and having in view the inte rests of their client, it was suggested whether it would not l>e hetfer to donv entirely his presence at the scene of the homicide; got he said that he should permit nothing of the kind; tin* if he could not he acquitted with the whole truth of his connection with the aflkir known, lie would prefer to abide the result, however fatal it might lie. thitrnth Avntv mmn. James Rodger*, the boy who ia under sentence of death for the murder of James Hwanson while the latter was walking with his wife in Tenth ovenno, is confined in cell No. 5 on the lower floor of the Tombs. He is ?mall In stature, not weighing over 1 15 or 120 pounds. He has fullness of form, and a well developed muscular temperament; his forge eyes are of a grayish hue, and hi? hair is inclined to lie sandy. There is nothing in his appearance to in dicate a vindictive or revengeful disposition, and his retiring manner rather evince characteristics direct ly tbe vppovit?. II? eflttjtgiws hope of a cviwuuU . tion of his sentence t<> imprisonment, the genera) feeling being opposed to hisexccution, in view of hin extreme youth. Rodger* wan ls>ru in Ireland in 1840 and at the time of the murder of Hwsneon waH not yet 17 years of age. Hi* father in Htill living, ami maiden with his wife at No. 24 Went Twelfth street, in thin city, lie luw four dis tent, one younger than himself, u very attractive young lady, ami who feels deeply interested in the fate of her brother. He has also an elder brother, residing on Tenth avenue near SixU ?>nth street. The three elder sinters are married, one raiding in New Jersey and two in thin city. The elder ulsters and brother came to thin country (trot, and were followed bv the parents, who left James and a younger bro ther and sister in the care of some acquaintances in Ireland, where they remained until 18M. At that time James and his sister came to thin country, the brother having died in Ireland previous to their departure. On arriving in the city, they joined their parents, and soon after James went with them on a visit to Woodhridge, New Jersey, the residence of one of his elder sisters, who had been married. After remaining there a short lime on a visit, he returned to New York. He wan then sent to school nearly nine months to a Mr. Quinn, and was regarded by him as a quiet, peace ful boy. Rislgers himself says that he never had it quarrel in his life. His term m school being finished he went to Woodhridge, where he was employed by his brother in law as a teamster, and there he re mained nntil about five weeks previous to the mur der, when, lieing taken sick, he came to the hooee of his parents In West Twentv-fifth street, that ha might t>e cared for and nursed by his mother. When be had sufficiently recovered he sought employ ment, and on the second day he succeeded in getting a situation in the tin store of Mr. Hines, No. l.l Howery. at a remuneration of three dollars and i half a week. Ah tins was not enough, however, t<* enable him to do anything for the support of hut father and mother, he stated that if he could not get more profitable employment he would go back to Woodnridge. He remained with Mr. Hines abont three weeks. Boon after leaving him he states that he WM informed that he could gat a job on the cor ner of Hammond and Bleecker streets, and on the Saturday the murder was committed he left his mo ther's house to visit the place and ascertain whether he could obtain employment. While out he states that he met MeOivney, who importnned him to drink, which he did several times, and after that he has no recollection of anything that transpired. I Ate that night he found himself at his mother's house, and his mother and sisters undressing him and putting him to l>ed, which is the first circum stance that he can call to mind alter the drinking with Mctli vney. I>uring Sunday lie was quite ill from the effects of the debauch. TnK ORKKNWICH STREET Mt'RDF.K.
