Yesterday, In the United States District Court, belore Judge Blatcuford, in the case of Mrs. Lucy Pish, executrix 01 James Fisk, Jr., deceased, which la an action to determine Mrs. Flsk's right to 20,000 shares claimed to have been held in the Credit Mobiller and Union Pacific Railroad by her late husband, Mr. David Dudley Field made a motion to vacate an order extcuding the time till the 15th of April for Durant, McComb, MoKee, Rollins, Brooks and Williams, co-resnondonts, to put In their answers. Counsel argued that there nad been great delay lu putting in these answers. The bill was filed May, 1871. Tne time to answer expired la June. It was extended till July. It was again extended to August l and to September 4. Then, instead of answering, the defendants demurred. The demurrer was overruled. Beiore the demurrer there had been seven extensions of 181 days, and since the demurrer there had been extensions by consent of the plaintiff extending to 206 days. He would be willing to extend the time for answering to the 1st of May, provided he could now go on and take testimony without prejudice. He (Mr. Field) intended to take a voyage around the world, and it was important that the testimony should be taken while he was in the country. Mr. Stickney, on the part or the defendants, admitted that the extensions of time relerred to by counsel had been granted; but Haid there had been some difficulty in getting the co-defendants named to verliy their answers, as they lived in different and distant parts of the States. He did not think that the testimony could be properly tuken until the answers were verified. The Judge took the papers and reserved his decision. alleged burning of the bark mary m. bird. Viae American Bark Mary BI. Bird?She in Set Fire to In the Harbor of Boeaoi Ayrea?The Suspected Parties Arrested and on Their Way to This Port. The United States consul at Buenos Ayres, under date of February 12, 1873, writes to Mr. William Hunter, Second Assistant Secretary of State, informing him that on a night in the month of December last the American bark Mary M. Bird, Captain Frank B. Packard, was set on fire, and damaged to the extent ol five or six thousand dollars, and narrowly escaped complete destruction. The lives of the officers and crew were also seriously Imperilled. All the persons on board were supposed to have been asleep except one seaman, Martin Cashln, who was stationed as anchor watch at eleven o'clock. He did not call his relief at twelve o'clock, as it was his duty to have done. At about ball-past twelve o'clock an alarm of fire was raised by the stewardess, Anna Erras. The fire was extinguished by the crew, with aid from the English and American ship% Parts of a kerosene oil can were found lis the lazaretto, where the fire originated. This can had been left the preceding night in the pantry, which opens from the inner cabin next door to the room of stMWurilpBM When the alarm ol lire wan given the watchman was found la a stupid and partially insensible condition. He toolc no part In extinguishing the Are, and Bald *'he had got somethlug alt" which had poisoned blm, but exhibited consciousness enough to tell his shipmates to call him before "she went down." The next day, alter he was arrested, he said to the men, "1 have got into a pretty scrape, haven't 1T" Cashin (the accused) informed the Consul that the stewardess came to hlin while he was on the watch, talked to him confidentially, and then told him to come to her window, where she gave him several glasses of liquor, after which he was unconscious of all that occurred until next day. The Consul has decided to send Martin Cashin to New York for trial, nud expresses his belief that Anna Brras, the stewardess, has been connected with the alleged offence. This woman and her husband, Charles Krras, the cook of the Mary M. Bird, arc expected by the bark Isaac Hall in New Vork shortly, and the stewardess will, upon her arrival, be placed under arrest on the charge above referred to. The Consul has taken measures to send Cashin forward, as also the crew of the Mary M. Bird, who are to appear as witnesses for the piosecntlon. It appears lrom the Consul's despatch that of late there has been a good deal of insubordination among the crews of American vessels in the port of Buenos Ayres. The crime charged against the accused is, we believe, made a capital one under aa old law of Congress. On the arrival of the accused the case will he examined into by United States Commissioner Shields. BUSINESS IN THE OTHER COURTS. SUPREME COURT-CHAMBERS. A Life Insurance Company that Don't 'Want to Pay. Before Judge Fancher. In July, 1871, three policies of Insurance for $1,000 each were obtained br three parties, named respectively Beardsley, Haiglit and Wallln, in the Reserve Mutual Life Insurance Company, on the Ufe of a Ms. Coughlin, then a resident of Chenango eonnty, in this State. In October, 1872, Coughlin died of consumption, and npon the allegation that be had this disease at the time the policies were taken out the company refused to par them. The company rnrther charges a conspiracy to cheat the company ont of the amount between the three parties named above and the examining physician. An injunction was obtained to prevent them from fiarting with the policies, and the case came nto this Court yesterday on a motion to continue the Injunction and to prevent the bringing of three different suits. The case was argued at great length by Mr. Wheeler H. Peck ham for the company, and Henry K. Mygatt, of Norwich, Chenango county. Mr. Peckbam claimed that the policies should lie set aside and declared void, on the ground of conspiracy to defraud tne cokipanv, and he cited numerous authorlties on Hie.subject. Mr. Mygatt read a large NEW YORK HERALD, nnmner of affidavits bearing on hi* side of the ra?e, I all set tint; lorth Cougldln's sound physical healtu at the time the policies were obtained. Among I them was the affldavit of his wife, who was mar- j . ried to him, it appears, after the inaurances were effected on his Hie. She states that in January, I 1H72, he caught a severe cold, and that this threw ' him into a consumption. In the course ol his remarks Mr. Mygatt observed that life Itself was hardly less hazardous than getting money out of life insurance companies. The Court took the papers. Decisions.

Before Jndge Robinson. There is scarcely any end to the- suits brought against the city to regulate Irregularities of assessment, and particularly in the matter of street paving. Four of this class of suits?two brought by Currier A Freeborn to regulate the assessments tor repaving South aud other streets, and the two brought by Long A Voorhis in regard to the assessments lor paving various streets, were recently brought into this Court aud Judge Robinson yesterday gave a decision in regard to them. He holds that the act of 1872 covers mere irregularities in assessments, but does not relate to any assessments lor pavements laid prior to January 1, 1872. This act provided when an assessment was raised for irregularities for reassessment, excepting, however, ail assessments for repaving streets where the property had paid one assessment for paving. The decision holds that this act, though retroactive, is constitutional, and that the remedy to be administered must have reference to it, and, though these salts are not abated by it, the injunction in the case of Long A Voorhis will have to he subject to the right ol the city to take measures for reassessment, and as to Ctirrhy A Freeborn if the subject of their assessments is excepted by the terms of the act the injunction is to be absolute.

A SPIRIT " MEDIUM" IN COURT. The Jefferson Market Police Court presented a lively appearance yesterday afternoon,'owing to the announcement thai "Doctor" J. V. Mansfield, of 361 Sixth avenue, known among modern Spiritualists as a "Test Medium," would be brought up on complaint of a number of gentlemen of this city, charged with "disorderly conduct and conduct calculated to provoke a breach of the peace." For some time before the hour designated for the examination the more prominent Spiritualists, whose faces are familiar attthe Apollo llall Spiritual conferences, began to gather, showing a fair representation of that peculiar class which runs to long hair, a careless attire and unsettled manner. Much sympathy was expressed by them when the "Doctor," who, as Is alleged, is threatened with paralysis, entered, supported on either side by the arm of a friend. The prosecutors, numbering some six or seven business men, were also well supported, and a lively fight was anticipated. After a few unimportant matters were disposed of, His Honor Justice Cox called the case of the People vs. Mansfield, and at his suggestion the parties adjourned to the examination room, where the crowd eagerly followed. The prisoner was represented by Counsellors Albert Day and A. W. Tenny, and the prosecution by Mr. McClellan. The proceedings opened by an announcement from Mr. Tenny on the part of Mr. Mansfield that he waived, an examination and was ready to give bail to await the action of the Grand Jury. Considerable skirmishing followed between counsel, which His Honor terminated by deciding that this was a summary proceeding under the statute, the only question being whether the prisoner should be held to bail to keep the peace, and his volunteering bail would be to plead guilty to the charge. A strong effort on the part of the prisoner's counsel was then made to obtain a postponement of the examination, but without success. The prosecution then called Mr. William G. Grant, a well known lumber merchant, residing at the St. Cloud Hotel. Mr. Grant detailed an Interview which he, in company with others, had with Mansfield. He said the prisoner proposed to furnish communications from the departed spirits of trlends of ihe visitor; that he provided the visitor wltn a certaim style of paper, very thin and transparent, upon which he (the visitor) wrote his question and folded it in a prescribed manner: then the prisoner laid his hand upon It, and after waiting Tor a time, us he alleged, for the requisite "magnetism," folded the question in a much smaller compass, sealed it with mucilage, and, taking a pencil, wrote a pretended answer to it. The particular question spoken of had been written by one of the partv and addressed to his brother iu the spirit land, though he never had a brother either there or anywhere else. Nevertheless, an answer was obtained. Mr. Grant explained how a knowledge ot the question was arrived at by allowing "the conditions," us they are called?that is. the character or the paper, the pencil and light? and swore that himself and the other gentlemen with him could do it just as well as Mr. Mansfield, and without any aid from spirits. At the conclusion of the direct examination or the witness the case was postponed for two weekB. BURGLARS BALKED. Arrest of the Notorious Allen Brothers by the Police of the Eighth WardFighting for Freedom. Two notorious characters, named Wesley and Marten Allen, were arraigned at Jefferson Market Police Conrt yesterday morning, charged with attempting to commit a burglary upon the premises of C. Kolilsart, No. u Mercer street. Before being sent to Court the men were conveyed to Police Headquarters, where they were examined before Captain Irving, who listened to the story of the arrest. The Aliens complained of having been beaten by the officers while conilned In the cells. This statement the police denied, and said they only used the clubs In self-defence, when the prisoners attempted to escupe. It appears that shortly after one o'clock yesterday morning, as Officer Kichurd Jackson was patrolling his post in Mercer street, he saw three men near canal street, acting in a suspicious manner, and on going towards them they turned into that thoroughfare and walked towards Broadway. The officer, thinking that they were thieves and attempting to commit a bursriary, concluded to try his doors, and immediately set about it, examining THE LOCKS ON EACH one separately, on reaching the silk and lace house oi John U. Kohlsaat, Nos. u, 11 and 13 Mercer street, he noticed that the padlock on the door, although the sam^Bhape as the one usually useu, was something smaller. Coupling this lact with the appearance of the three men in the vicinity, the officer felt assured that these parties had forced off the lock belonging to Mr. Kohlsaat and put on one oi another pattern. About the time he came to the conclusion he saw one oi the three men, who had In the meantime changed hats with another or the gang, turn again Into Mercer Btrect, from Canal, and as he was about to pass the officer the latter seized him and told him mat he was wanted. On looking closely at the prisoner officer Jackson discovered that it was the notorious "Wes" Allen. who was sent to State Prison some time ago, and hiiw just returned home. The oillcer took Ins prisoner to the station house, where he was searched aijd a new padlock, two keys, a knife and a quantity ol red pepper were found rpox niw. While OfBcer Jackson was engaged in the arrest of Wesley another of the party turned the corner ot Mercer and Canal streets, hnt. seeing one of his partners in the grasp or an officer, agalu timed into Canal street and ran towards Broadway, hut was caught by Officer Moloney, who was patrolling Canal street. The moment that otllcer tain HANDS ON this MAN the latter threw a handful ot red pepper In his face, nearly blinding him for the moment, and, breaking away, ran across Broadway and into the Fourteenth precinct. Maloney. although stunned and pained by the pepper, followed him, and soon succeeded In captnrlng him. While running away this prisoner threw away three lanre canvas bags, which were subsequently nicked up by Moloney, SUNDAY, MARCH 30, 18 and with the prisoner taken to the station, where be gave his name as John 11. Coles, but was subsequently recognized by several officers as "Mart" Allen. It was ascertained that trie third man was Henry Wiley, alias "Shorts," and Officer Wilson was detailed to And him, which he did, about an hour attcrwards, In the house No. 104 Wooster street, and took him to the station house. Upon searching him, the officers found some red pepper and a gustitter's tongs in his pocket, after which he was locked up. Alter a short examination at the police conrt they were committed to await a more extended investigation. LOCAL AND STALE TAXATION. ' Address by Mr. Daw Id A. Wells Before tbe Union League Club. There was a large and distinguished gathering at the Union League Club lust evening to listen to Hon. David A. V\ ells, who spoke at length on local and State taxation. The speaker opened by alluding to the present disgraceful system of taxation in this Htate. The theory in vogue In New York and other States of the Union upon which was laid the basis of the present system of taxation was that it was necessary to assess every item and description of property, real and personal. In the eariy msiory oi ine country, wueu mere was little competition, and when bonds and other like instruments were untaxed, and when property consisted of tangible things, such as ships, slaves, lands and houses, the application of this system involved little difficulty. Fully one-flrth of the personal property oi the United States was held in bonds and legal tenders, notes and money, which were exempt from State taxation by decision of the Supreme Court of the United States. All original packages and property in transitu were also exempt when owned by persons, firms and corporations established and doing business in other States, but only selling their own goods in New York through permuneutly located agents. This property alone in New York State would aggregate hundreds of millions, every dollar of which was exempt from taxation. The laws of this State also exempted the deposits and Burplus of savings banks, amounting to $300,000,000, and justly also the property of its citizens subject to some exterior sovereignty. Another large proportion of the property of the State waB of the most intangible character. He meant bills or exchange, State, municipal aud corporate bonds, acknowledgments of indebtedness. This property constantly fluctuated in value, and was constantly transferred from one localltv to another; hence all attempts to assess this species of property were unsatisfactory, and nearly every civilized community had abandoned the taxation or this kind of property except the States of the federal Union. He relerred to the unjust rule of residence, by which railroad cars, ships, steamboats and immense stocks of raw material owned and held in our great cities were exempt irom taxation. Could New York afford to put her citizens at a disadvantage in this respect? Did we not see Pennsylvania, with her system of taxation, advancing in giant strides in population and wealth, while New York, laboring under old and exploded ideas, developed slowlv? Was there not. a tendency on the part of capitalists to leave a State where there was a discriminating tax levied on its resident citizens? Two-thlidsof the personal property of the State was exempted from taxation by law, with a large part of the other one-third exempted by competing nations or neighboring States. What, then, became of the theory so generally accepted in the United Stales that in order to tax equitably it was necessury to tax everything? In New York the aggregate of personal property fully equalled that of the real property, while the proportion oi the former returned for taxation was not in excess of one-llith of the total assessed valuation. While the State had been increasing in wealth and population the ratio of personal to real property assessed in 1872 was less than in 1869; that the whole amount oi personal property assessed in the Htate was not equal to the capital and surplus und deposits or the banks and savings bunks of the State, and tnat in New York city, with a population of 1,000,000, not two i per cent of the citizens stood assessed lor personal property. He therefore believed the whole system imperfect, a farce, aud an obstruction to material progress. In Massachusetts, where the most perfect system oi taxation on this plan was in vogue, it was also unsatisfactory, and the officials regarded it as a failure. He urged, therefore, that if taxes were levied on a broad basis, like real eBtate, with certainty of proportionality and uniformity on a lew items oi property like the franchises of all moneyed corporations, enjoying the same privileges within the State, and on fixed signs oi profits, as rental values of buildings?they would diffuse themselves with unerring equality, Pirat?That, real estate, lands and buildings should be taxed on a lull and fair market valuation. Stvond?That moneyed corporations and unincorporated deposit bankers should be taxed. Third?W hile under these two rules all property now returned for assessment was included, It was proposed further to correct defective taxation by additional provisions In, which the landlord Is made responsible lor the tax; but the occupant can bo pursued by the law for reimbursement according to the terms of the lease. All other property would be exempt from taxation. Fourth?To provide Tor the appointment of a State officer whose duty it should be to enforce the tax laws. Mr. Wells assumed that three times the rental of a prnpert v Is equal to the personal property ol the occupant; that is, a man paying $l,ooo annual rent must have an Income of at lgast $3,000, which presupposes a capital in some form?property or brains?worth $40,000. Would it be unjust that such a person should pay one or two per cent taxes 011 three times his rental?$3,000, as the representative of his personal property t He also showed by figures liow this system would equalize taxation as between city and country real estate. He spoke against the theory of Infinitesimal taxation and proclaimed that any imposition of taxes, which cannot be finally diffused by the natural laws of trade and dealings in proportion to expense and consumption, partook of the odious character of tax spoliation or confiscation. The effects of this new system would be a natural unliorm law. executed on all property in every lorni used and consumed In the State. Persons must occupy buildings, and business must be done In buildings, and through these visible Instrumentalities capital can be reached by a rule of practical uniformity and by a simple, plain and economical method of assessment and collection. He contended that it would greatlv reduce taxation, promote prosperity greater than could be obta ncd through any other agency, and render New York State the financial centre and commercial entrepot of the Continent. TAXATION WITHOUT BEPBE8ENTATI0N. To the Editor of the Herald:? There are twenty-one wards In this city of ours, only nine of which are deemed qnallfled to have representatives in the new Hoard of Education, as the lollowlng carefully made list will testily One Is a resident of the Fifth ward, two are residents of the Ninth ward, one from the Fourteenth ward, one trom the Sixteenth ward, three from the Seventeenth ward, three from the Eighteenth ward, three from the Nineteenth ward, five irom the Twenty-first ward and two from the Twenty-second ward. That the electors of New York will be satisfied with a system that gives to twelve wards no representation, although they have to pay their proportion of the taxation by which It is sustained. 1 have mv doubts. That the schools of certain localities will be well provided for, there is occular demonstration from the number of Commissioners that have been given to their wards, while those sections that have no Immediate representation to whom they can apply will suffer as they have done under the old King arrangement. The district system was struck from rnc nin hi Ainany to grainy me representatives or Murray Hill, and until It is restored our public education will be an unsettled question with each succeeding Legislature.

HORRIBLE DEATH ON THE RAIL Yesterday afternoon an unknown man came to a frightful death on the Erie road, lie was stepping from one car to another, near the Bergen tunnel, when he slipped between the cars and was crushed to death in an Instant.

Byatem of Miking Awards and AssessmentsHow Streets and Avenues Are Opened?The Labor Done on the Kingsbridge Boad Improvement and the northern Bon* levard?An Invidious Comparison?Heavy Private Sales. A somewhat panicky week in real estate closed yesterday, having been remarkable only for dulness in the public market, while at private sales some very good transactions were had, contrary to general expectations. It is scarcely necessary to repeat here the "oft told tale" why the business of purchase and disposal of property has been more active during the past six days, as this subject formed the theme of this column almost dally. The chance for a general Improvement during the ensuing week, according to the prognostication of the quidnuncs, has almost arrived, this being no less than the anticipated grand balk of tbi post estate, which occurs on Tuesday, the 1st of April, and which has anxiously been waited for by a large number of active operators. This estate consists of 165 choice lots, located on and lronting Riverside Park, also Claremont avenue. Messrs. Muller, Wllklns A Co. have charge of this sale; and, considering the great success these gentlemen met with in disposing of the Oarman estate, a similar result may be anticipated for the ensullng auction. Besides the last mentioned, there will be held at the Real Estate Exchange a number of other highly Important sales, the particulars thereof will be published in to-morrow's (Monday's) Herald. Annexation to the city of the towns of Morrlsanla, West Farms aud Kingsbridge meets with favor wherever fairly considered, (rom whatever point it is viewed. These scattered municipalities

are a part, as it were, of the great metropolis extendlpg into another county, and they are excluded from the city's Jurisdiction not by any natural governmental boundary, but by an artificial one. The Harlem River, which once satisfactorily indicated the governmental limit in that direction as a dividing stream, has now become the most interesting subject of development in our metropolitan system. Our parks and boulevards and palaces are the pride and delight of the city, but tliey are not self-supporting. Their cost and maintenance must be defrayed from its trade and commerce. When we cast our eyes towards the shore of a sister State and there behold a forest of blended masts and spikes, standing as monuments of the improvidence and Inertness with which the public affairs of the city have of late been conducted, we are sensibly admonished that a revival of the wise and liberal svstem of municipal enterprise which established the prosperity now enjoyed is our interest us well as our duty. With tills conviction thoroughly fixed the minds of our citizens fully concur in the necessity of supplementing their present, business facilities by the present improvement of both shores of Harlem River and the periectlng of its channel through to the Hudson. But it is evident that under a single municipal authority only can this improvement be successfully accomplished. Already have the members of the Westchester County Board of Supervisors, representing the agricultural towns beyond the annexation district, succeeded in passing resolutions in opposition to the views and interests of our nearer neighbors "over the bridge," instructing the Senator and members of Assembly representing that county In the Legislature ot the State to vote lor the repeal of all laws providing for bridges or tunnels to be constructed over or under Harlem River. This action of the Supervisors of tub agricultural towns of westchester county reveals the situation as it actually exists. They do not sympathise with the improvement of the Harlem River so long us their pocKets are to contribute towards it to the extent ol a dollar, while, on the other hand, the town to be annexed, possessing, as it does the water front of its further shore, bears with the city a common interest in the matter, aud it is evident that it mustshuro with the city a common destiny respecting it. Moreover, cur citizens liilly appreciate the fact that the inhabitants of these iriondly towns are mostly their former neighbors and fellow citizens, aud that many of them are yet doing business and paying taxes largely within the city's present boundaries. Without other aid, and by means of local taxation and assessments, they have extended over their territories ruuniclnal organizations, with streets, avenues and boulevards well lighted and regulated, presenting, in the aggregate, the attributes ol "no mean city." Following the rise of values, as already exemplified in the city's progress, the annexation and consequent improvement of those sections will, no doubt, enhance the value or Harleru real estate as rapidly us Harlem and Yorkvllle, when emerging from their village conditions, enliurwa/i vahifiu in tlifwiti- holn?f thorn A ml urttli the confident assurance that the towns to he annexed will, through their own enhancement and in business reciprocity, make ample compensation in return, the city cheerfully gives Its approval to the measure. The relative merits or demerits, as the case may he, of the TWO SYSTEMS OF MARINO AWARDS AND AH8F.SSMHNTS in street openings and Improvements, as exemplified In the two reports lately filed in the Department of Public Works by the Commissioners for opening the new drive trom 156th street to Inwood street on the one hand and the Commissioners for widening the Kingsbndge road from lfi&th street to Spuyten Duyvil creek on the other, forms a topic of lively IntercBt and conversation among the property-owners interested in general and the real estate operators in Pine street m particular. We Had that TDK KINOSBHIDOE ROAD COMMISSIONERS are accused of partiality and favoritism in their awards: bnt this may arise from each individual property-holder thinking (as they always <lo) thut ills especial property Is worth far more than his neighbors. The strong point made agnlnst them is in the mode of laying the assessments, which, apart from its injustice, is by many considered to be illegal. In laying the assessments for this improvement the Commissioners have first assessed each lot on the line at a definite fixed sum ($280, we lielieve), so that a party owning a lot at the lower end, worth |4,ooo, only pays seven per cent of Its value, while the holder of a similar lot at the upper end, worth $1,000, pays twenty-eight per cent ot its value. This is so manifestly unjust and unequitable that it Is not to be wondered at if it meets with the most strenuous opposition. Then, again, they have extended their area ot assessment, as is commonly done, over too large a space, assessing lots, lor instance, on and east of Tenth avenue, which can hardly be said to be benefited by the Improvement. Inasmuch as this avenue is the natural outlet to the city. A resident on this avenue would have no more idea ot driving over to the Kingsbrldge mad to come to the city than a citizen on the last named thoroughfare would think of coming to the Tenth avenue for a similar purpose. The assessment is also extended to 145th street, half a mile huuiii 01 ine COMMENCEMENT OF THE IMPROVEMENT, and the resident.* within that area cannot possibly be benefited thereby, except In a general way as the whole city Is enhanced, and as they have to bear their general proportion of what Is laid (one-half) npon the city at large, they feel that they have a right to complain. The whole system of overlapping and interlacing assessments of this kind is lmipfoper and unjust. The Commissioners for the NEW DRIVE, OR NORTHERN BOrLEVARD, divided the whole line of Improvement under their charge into sections of 5o,ooo square feet, or r>oo linear roet; then fixing a maximum value at the lower end and a minimum rate for the upper end, they obtained a regular ratio of decreaso for each section, of which there were twentyeight or thirty; then calculating the area falling within each section us It belonged to every owner, they multiplied the number or square Icet belonging to him by the rates of value per square foot belonging to that section, and the amount made up the award, even to the fractional part 01 a cent. In T.BVYINfl TI1E ASSESSMENTS one half, as In the other case, was laid on the city, and the other half of each section in detail was taxed upon the property fronting or bordering oa that particular section, so that the parties assessed paid in proportion to the awards made for that section, thosereceivlng most paving most, those receiving less paying less.
