J When it becomes unsafe tor a member ot the police force to ialthfuUy perform bis duty, lest by so doing he ahould incur tho displeasure of a judicial incumbent and expose himself to insult aud degradation, it also becomes the duty of the executive officer of the department to exercise his authority for the protection of the men aader his command. Two patrolmen have already been committed to prison, wa a frivolous charge of assault and battery, mode by a liquor dealer whom they had arrested, in tho proper dis charge of their duty, for a violation of law, and this eourse having been takon under tho advUoiuent of a person who recently appearod as counsel for a liquor dealers' society, it is presumptive that a similar course In intended to be pursued towards all other faithful ?Ulcers. Wherefore, until further orders you will refrain from taking or sending any persons undor arrest before Mr. Twice Justice Michael Connolly, or to any court where Re may preside in the character of Justice ot the Peace, for examination or commitment. The Twelfth, Nineteenth, Twenty-first, Twenty-second, Twenty third, Thirtieth, Tbirty-Urst and Thirty-second precincts will send all persons whom they may arrest to these headquarters at all times when it is known that Justice Conuoily is presiding at the Fourth District Court, for special orders as to the court they shall be takon be fore.

The Justice at first refused to receive such e charge, assert* nig Uteru was no law to sustain it. The sergeant then referred him to the ordinance, ami after the J ustice had read aloud the sections applicable he said, "Well, that was not known to too before, and If I am ignorant of It it canuot he expected that hacktneo should know it" Ho then discharged the wliolo seven, although throe of the mon were charged with infractions of other pro visions of the ordlnauces. i'atrolmau Algernon 8. Rose arrested a man named H. Knul> l for selling liquor on Sunday, May 8, 1966 (document K), and took him before Justice Connolly, whew be made the appropriate charge. 1 be Justice, as soon as the charge was made, threatened to put the po liceman under hail for making the arrest, as well as the prisoner whom he held. On the satoo Sunday, May 6, 1966, patrolman John Mclaughlin arrested Dennis Byer for selling liquor (doc ument L). and took bun before Justice Connolly. In this case the Justlce required the policeman to givo ball In #300, on a char e of encouraging Byer to sell llquom, the policeman having tasted the liquor to enable him to testify in the ,-ase. The Justice on this occasion gdems to have felt it necessary to assure the accused of his sym pathy, by requiring bonds from the policeman, and at the same time he privately informed the oillcer, "It shall go no farther; it will not amount to anything." And it has not. Patrolman Patrick Oatls arrested John Moore on Sun day, May 8, 1866, in the act of selling liquor In violation of law (document 11). The prisoner was taken before Justice Connolly and the proper charge wastnado; t.vo witnesses testified to the tacts in the case, and it ap peared that the ofUcer had entered Moore's barroom by the hack door, in tho same way his customers want in. The Justice then announced that "Moore had a right to shoot the officer as a trespasser, and h? would have been justified In knocking his brains out." Again, on Sunday, May 6, 1S66, patrolman Jeremiah P. (iillen arro.-ted tho bartender of John Mason, a. licensed liquor dealer, for selling and receiving pay fori liquor on that day. (Document N.) The prisoner was taken before Justice Connolly, and the proper charge was made against him. The Justice discharged him forthwith, and then said to Mason, the proprietor of the liquor store, " Club that officer out of your pLico if he comes there again.'' Patrolman William J. McMurray, on Sunday, July 1, 1866, arrested Joseph Hill for violating the Kxciso law. (Document O.) When the prisoner was brought bciore Justlco*Connolly and charged with the offence the Jus tlco mado tho following declaration:? "Citizens ought to protect themselves. If some of you ofllcors had your brains knocked oat the parties who did it would be justified. How long hate you b. ou on the police? Yon are one oftho.se smart, efficient offi cers, looking for promotion. Now, I shall discharge the man, and if you bring any more men here on such a charge as this ( will lock you up, If I were this man I would sue you for false arrosi." ? The affidavit of patrolman Almas B. Stoddard (docu ment P) shows that on July 3, 1866, be arrested one Reardon for violating the Excise law, by selling liquor without a lie nse-, that ho took his prisoner before Jus tice Connolly and made the appropriate complaint; after bearing which the Justice used the following lauguage to the officer:? "Most horrible crime I most horrible crime! flow dare you bring a citizen before me oa such a complaint ? Don't you know that tho Recorder has given hie opinion that the law is unconstitutional? Now, sir. if you bring another person buforo me on a similar complaint I win oominit yon to a cell. You have your choice, to obey mo or t.< obey the Superintendent of Police. Now, sir, go to the station house and tell yonr captain wuat I have said to you." Then turning to the prisoner, the Justice used to him the following language:?"You go home, open your place, and sell liquor to whom you please." Patrolman George H. Irvine, on the 4<h of July, 1868 (document Q), arrested the same man, Keardon, for the violation of the Excise law on that day, and took him before J ustiou Connolly and made the proper cliargo. Tho Justin- discharged tho prisoner and then Invited him to make a charge against the policeman for assault and battery in making the arrest, which Reardon re fused to do, saying be hod come along with tho olllcer without force or violence. Tho Justice then told Rear don to resist in caso an attempt was made to arrest him again; and, addressing the policeman, he said:?"Now, if you or any ether officer bring any rooro persons here on such a charge as this, I will discharge them and lock you up." This threat tailed to prevent the officer from performing his duty, and during the same day he again arrested Reardon for a similar oflence and again took him before Justice Connolly and made the proper charge. Tho Justice at once exclaimed:?"Didn't I tell you not to come here again with that charge? What do you mean? This is clearly a contempt of court. Now, I will look you up." Then, turning to Reardon, lie re quired him to make a charge of assault and battery against the policeman for tnakiug the arrest, winch seemingly be complied with roluctanjy, and then ho ro Suired the policeman to give bail iu $300 to answer at le Sessions. e On July 4, 1806, Sergeant Barnott a Phillips arrested John llil.er tor a violation ot the Excise law. (Docu ments R and a) He took him before Justice Connolly and made a proper chargo against him. The Justice forthwith discharged the accused, and then urged liim to make a charge against tho Sergeant, saying, "If you will make a charge of assault and battory against Ser geant Phillips 1 will lock him op." The man declined to make the charge. On July 9, 1806, Patrolman Patrick Oatls arrested Francis Gross while In the act of kloklng a man In the head, whom he was holding down on the sidewalk. (Document T.) The prisoner was taken before Justice Connolly and a proper charee made. The policeman waa examined on the facta of the case, and when that was through with, the Justico exclaimed, "You saw too moob. You are a damned nuisance. There has not been one day's peace In tho Twenty-second ward since yon have been there." AfldT the policeman had been that addressed the offender wae discharged. Patrolman John Smedick, on September 12, 1866, ar retted John McCarty for disorderly oondoot and assault and battery? (Document U.) He was taken belore Justice Connolly and the proper charge made against him. The prisoner was at once discbarg. d, and the Justice made an announcement thus:?"I in sorry 11c Carty did not take^onr club from you and break it over your head." Oa September 26,1866, patrolman Cornelias Mahonv and two other officers arrested James Cullen, Daniel Looney and Patrick Looney lor a felonious assault and battery on a Mrs. Russe in a stable (Document V.) They were taken before Justice Connolly, and the charge made by the woman supported by other testimony. Two ot the prisoners were held and ona discharged.' After having made this disposition ot the case the Just.oo reprimanded the officers for making the arrest without s warrant. Roundsman Alfred P. Schultz, on the night of De cember 20, 1866, hearing a female voice cryiug murder, help, he., In a brewery building, called lor assistance and then entered the place, where he found the woman; and she pointed out the person whom she ohargod bad maltreated her. (Document W.) The officer prooueded to arrest the man, when two other men Interfered, and endeavored to effect a rescue, which made it necessary to arrest them. Those prisoners were taken before Jus tice Connolly. Tho woman testified against the man who had caused bur to make the outer?; but before the policeman could testify against those who bad attempted the rescue the Justice, in a very strong manner, repri* mandid the officers lor making the arrests, telling Ihoui, "You might have been Instrumental In destroying a wbole browing of ale." The three prisoner* w?ro then discharged. On January 9, 1867 patrolman John Qolnn arrested a man named lllsbback for throwing ashes In tun street, and took him before Jasuce Connolly, where be mado the charge of violating the ordinances of the city and of tho code of tho Metropolitan Board of Health, (Document X. | The law of the ctato makes this offence a miadomoaoor. (dee chapter 377, boasiona laws of I860.) The Justice reprehended the officer lor being too efficient in small things and neglecting more important matters; then referred to imaginary omissions of duty on beats several miles distant from the precinct with which Qutnn was counocted, and told hltn vo go thsre and per form duty. In ridicule of the officer and of the ordi nances under which be acted, he tauntingly said, "It is a pity that you officers hadn't the city ordinances aud lbs health ordinances pinned to yonr snlelds." On January 18, 1867, patrolman John McLaughlin ar rested lienry Hughes lor violating tho Excise law. (Doenment Z.) The prisoner was taken before Justice Connolly to hate the proper charge in ado against him; but before the policeman was allowed to make the cliargo he waa subjected to a long and irrelevant exami nation, and whcuuhui was turough the Justice refused to allow the officer to make o com plaint and discharged the prisoner. Patrolman David Slovene entered the liquor store of Mrs. Saul on -unday, Jnnuarv 20, 1867, and round her son, a lad of fourteen or nltceu years of age. engaged ia selling liquor to customers (Document A A.) The boy was arrested and taken before Justice Connolly, wboie the proper charge waa made; he was promptly dis charged, and the officer reprimanded by the Jasitce, he using among other expression* tb* following:?"Mrs. Haul had a perfect right to spilt your head open; and wonid have served yon tight If she bad." On Sunday, January 20, 1807, Captain M. B. Wilson arrcnti d John Mas .n. a licensed liquor dealer, for Viola tion of lbs Excise law. (Document BB.) He took the prisoner before Justice lounully, and made tho proper charge. After besring it the Justice discharged Mason, and Instructed him to resist any polio* officer who at tempted to arrest him again for such an offence, rising also tho following words:?"II you are brought before me I will commit the Captain or any other police officer who may arrest you." Roundsman Eugene T. Woodward arrested a drunken woman namod Margaret Powers on January 26, 1867, she being at the time very disorderly in the street. (Hocumeut CC.) While detained at the station house she continued noisy and disorderly, and warned the officers there that ir taken before Justice Connolly he would not hold her; that he was ber relative and if taken In his court she would be back again before Ihs officer who should take her. After being detained so as to be come somewhat sobered, as required by a Mlo of the police Justices, she was taken before Justico Connolly, and the proper charge made. Without takuig any testi mony in tho car# the Justice discharged her, and repri manded the officer for tusking such an arrest. #he wumar, as she had foretold, retrnea to Fort Washington on the same conveyance with the policeman who had taken her bet ore the Justice. On .Sunday morning, January 20. 1867, Patrolmen Thomas Levins and Richard Van Gleson arrestod Thorns* Gregan fur violation of the Excise law, and Allen Wot ford lor Interfering with the officers while in the dis cbarge of their duty. (Dooumeats DD and KE.) In this caso the officers bad been wlinueslug toe conduct of the prisoner Gregan and his customer*, In Ms barroom, for more than half an hour belore thesarrsnt took place: that when arre ted Gragan gave Wolford a key and directed htm to get pistols for lnm out of a safe; that It tbsa became netes-ary to use foroe In order to take the prisoner to the station honse; while this mm being done the other prisoner followed the officers, and as the officers had reason to beilsvs with the design of aiding in a res cue should opportunity offer; and he was not taken Into custody until he reached the station hawse, when It could be done without hazard to thn surety of the prin cipal prisoner; during the morning the tw > prisoners were taken bet ore Justice Connolly and the proper chargw ma^y, Tb? Justice discharged the oomplaintg, the tamo time announcing that "Gregan b?8 a right to keep hie place open for the accommodation of hia cus tom rs, and that he had a right to resist the arrest; that he would have been JustlUod in shooting the ofilcers for attempting te make it; that they bad gone too far; that they were carrying tlila thing with a high hand; and that before long they would find themselves locked up." Eight days after this arrest tho parties ugaiu appeared before Justice Connolly and mado complaint against tho jKilieeraan who had effected the arrest. Regarding the proceedings against the policeman as merely vexatious, and designed to overawe the officers and deter them from properly and faithfully performing their duly, wheuthey were required by tho Justice to furnish hall in three huu. tired dollars each, I advised them to decline offering any hail except themselves. Justice Connolly insisted ou the officers furnishing satisfactory bondsmen, and in default thereof he committed them to prison on Febru ary 8, 1867. Such a course of conduct on the part of Police Justice Connolly, so long and so persistently continued, appeared to me to require me to take such action as the statutes authorized, as well with a view to the duo administration of the criminal laws as to protect the officers and tneu under my command, and to enable a proper discipline and performance of duty to he maiutaiue<k and 1 issued General Order No. 489. On tho 3d of March inst. the general order was somewhat modiffed by special tele graphic orders, copies of which are herewith appended. Very respectfully submitted. JOHN A. KENNEDY, Superintendent.

Wright it at. vs. Arthur Leary.?This was an action brought by tbe plaintiffs, who are residents of New Brunswick, N, S., against the deiendaut, a well known shipping merchant in this city, for the balance of an account From the statement of counsel in open ing the case it appeared that in the spring of 1802 the plaintiffs were own re of a steamship, the Princess ltoyal. which they sent to this port ior sale, consigned to tho defendant. X!r. heavy eilocted a sale of the vessel, as the counsel supposed, for the sum oi $20,000, and made up on uccouut and rendered It to the plain tlfls, stating tbe sale was partly for cash and partly on crcd.t; and u portion of the purchase money was paid, leaving a balance of $6,$94 77, for which sum the pres ent suit was imtitutod. This case commenced on Monday, nod yesterday tho plaintiff's counsel put In evidence tho account ronderod by the defendant and then rested bis case.

Her machinery was also found to be bad and it be came necessary to return to New York, and it cost $12,000 to make her again ready for sea. Mr. George Leary was placed upon the stand, and tes tified he was a clerk to his brother, but on being ques tioned with respect to the condition of the vessel, the plaintiffs control objected to his answering, on the ground that Mr. Leary was tbe plaintiff's agent and sold the vessel as their agent.
