i WALL mm WALTZ. Gold Dances Up to 118 1-2 and Back to 117 1-2. Exciting Scenes Among the Gold Gamblers. Rise of Seven Per Cent in Gold During Two Months. THE MOVEMENT AND ITS MEANING. Gold Bade many men Blek yesterday ; it has been Hint the business interest!) of tlie country sick ?lace lite middle of January. The "bulls" Have succeeded In raising the price of the precious metal in two months over seven per cent, and yes terday they climbed up another round in the lad . der. ? visit to the Gold Boom recalled miiny of those exciting scenes familiar to the seeker of fortunes to a inmpu This royal road to ruin was crowded with the gold cormorants, and the dismal vesti bule, strewn with paper iragmeuts, foal with fetid air, and a shriek-pen of the superlative rank, contained the chieltaus ot the Wall street Vox. It wae a Held day. Ail the scenery of a great gold "spree" was perfect at two P. M. Around the Circular railing enclosing the little bronze fountain whose pellucid jets of water havepo long fallen into muddy spray after gathering the dust of the atmos phere, was a crowd of sellers and buyers; they were of all types? typeB oi that hoarse-voiced, broad-shoulaered, mustache-twisted being whose business is gold. A type enters. Be wears a Bismarck collar, a blue scan and a Spring style silk hat, and, crowd ing through to the railing, exclaims, "A quarter million at 18% 1" A wild roar of voices follow at 18%, and the type moves frantically about the vestibule, notebook in hand, seeking purchasers at his own figures. The telegraph Instrument clicks; those fatal figures which have driven so many men to wealth or poverty change, and gold In quoted at 118%. What a howl follows. The shrickers, rising on their toes, seek for a new note In the human voice. They extend their hands, as if they were expound ing the most exciting passage in war declama tion. while the typical broker puts forward his longest arm and proclaims, "$?276,000 AT 18%!'? fie does not neglect to turn his long white hand over several times, and himself bestow glances of ?ilent admiration upon its form and whiteness, while the indicator moves back to 118%, and he ad vanccs the price of his coin. During this transac tion below two rough, fariner-like men in the gal lery discuss their profit and loss. . "Give orders to sell, 1 tell you, then you'll know how you stand to-night. Don't you see, the price will tumble and fall below 18 to-night ?? "Yen, but it must go up." "Sell, sell, sell, 1 tell you I" Another man staggers into the gallery and begins to defy the ruu-s by smoking, when a peremptory voice iroin the gold pit Issues lorth? "Put out that cigar l" The sliriekers stop? they always stop for a little ftan ? and when the pursued drops his cigar the auction proceeds. There is one tall, smart character there who deserves immortality It he always howls as he howied yesterday? the crier, tie is a perfect artist on calling names, and so are the weary, toil-worn clerks who sit in the tribune and i elapse so hand somely into fashionable lassitude? artists in sighs and yawus. What a wearisome oc cupation is theirs, to listen to the shouting ?1 millions; to witness the momentary transfer of lo i tunes, to behold the poor beoome rich and the hmnble become arrogant; ami yet, like the apple woman In the streets, lne irom day to duy their same routine lives! But ivi'ry interest was represented in the Gold Koom yesterday. The curb stone brokers who are content to accept a com mission of one-thlrty-second oi one per cent lor their operations; the ill-clad countryman who sells out his mrro lor a lew thousand dollars, and oomes to the city witn ail Ins baggage in a small hand parcel, In the .<ope that he may become a Daniel l)rew or a Jim Fisk, as he has read the story of their rise In the vamped-up weeklies; the victim of several failures who goes to "the street" to regain a iortune which he has thrice lost in the counting room; tiie - - heavy, bold operator, to waoni such a clique move ment as that ot yesterday is a mere ripple, and the sile 't, }hougntful gatherer of rich daily balauces, whose capital is his skill in detecting the careless admissions of those aronnd him- these were a lew oi the men who made the Gold Koom echo and ring. It is a study to look down from the gallery during one of these field days and measure the brokers below, wild in their excitement. Irrepressi ble In their fan and quick to catch the bid or offer of every fresh operator who dashes up to the rail ing. their "circus" now; hut how long will it oonti'.u- ? The urst gentleman who expressed bun- -If ? the reporter stood lu iront of the btock Exchange iu Broad street. "What does this movement mean f" ??it means simply this, that it is a clique move ment to put up the price of sold in order to coun teract the moral eflect ol the announcement of the Treasury sale of $8,000,000 of gold." "Then it has no bottom to it r" "None at all, in my opinion. YOu know as well as 1 do about the natter, though." Leaving this highly intelligent and well-informed business man, the reporter called at the house of Jay Cooke A Co., and eujo/ed a brief conversation with a gentleman who has a reputation for rare ?agaciiy iu the street. "\ou believe that this movement is Influenced by the announced Treasury sale r" "Not at ail. ir the Secr-tary had ordered the sale ol four or eight million^ ol gold. Instead of six millions, the result would have been the san e. The clique who have engineered this movement own nearly all the gold In the street, and their ob ject is to make coin as scarce as possible." "Then you believe it to be an artillclal price? US%?" "Purely so! The clique began to 'bnll' gold about the middle of January, when it was about 11, and since that time tbc price has advanced seven per cent. But these evils correct them selves and you may look for an early return to ?atural values." "Of course this is a great public evil?" ??Certainly. They nave taken advantage of the existing state of the market to make the advance of to-dav." "What do you constder the immediate causc of the advancer" "That is impossible to say. They are accumulat ing gold because It makes bullion scarce. Perhaps tbey are largely interei-ted in stockB. 1 notice the market is very weak to-day." "Perhaps we shall have a grand collapse soonT" "Oh, everything must settle sooner or later into Its normal condition." There were those who argued that the rise was due to the heavy Importations and the consequent demand of merchants lor coin to meet their obliga tions. However, this, the present moment, Is no favorable opportunity to en'er upon a career of ' gold speculation for those who operate on "small margins." A season of rnln and disaster threat ens, in which the small fry, as usual, will most cer tainly be cousumed, and in which the heavier operators must make or broak.

The oyster season lias already begun to wane, and those in the trade are able to detect a diminu tion in the demand. The appetites of the million oyster caters of tills city have already become sa tiated. and it will need the interval of another summer to again -render the bivalves appreciable. The month of May? in which name there ia not to be found the cabalistic letter "R"? sees the trade almost at a standstill ; for, strange as It mar seem, there are many persons who will eat oysters up to the night of April aO, but who shun them on the following day. Even those who arc not superstitious bow without hesitation to the generally-received theory that i he uvnter becomes untit to eat after April, and abandon their customary order at the lunch coun ter 01 "oysters on the half shell." Yet those -who profess i<> be the beet judges declare that during no part of the year are the oysters better than In the middle of May. The oyster, is then in the healthiest condition, and, unless the weather is exceedingly warm, they are as solid as during the Winter* lie this as it may the or?termen do not And that it nays to keep their irge stores open, , but devote their attention to planting seed for fu ture crops. During the season about closing the supply has i?een somewhat limited bv the exceedingly cold weather, which has caused heavy sheets of Ice to form over ttoe beds and thus rendered them Inac cessible to the llshermen. It is not believed that the oysters! have to any great extent been killed by the cold weather. The oysters arc planted two years beiore the season for which tliey are to be put on the market. The transplanting this Spring for next season was treble as groat as In auy pre vious year, and the preparations already making for putting down the young oysters are on a Bfill larger scale. The oysters used for planting are about the size ol a grain of corn, and are obtained in great quantities Irorn Great South Hay and from various coves up the Sound and up the Hudson. They average about three thousand to the basket, and at the end of two years have grown so large that not more than one hundred and llliy to two hundred can be placed in the same measure. New York city consumes at present an average of 1,500.000 oysters dally. Fnlton Market alone using '200,000. Nearly three thousand vessels, including those from a sailboat to a schooner of 200 tons burden, are employed in the service. At present all the choicest brands of oysters ior l he country and Western trade are shipped from New York, while Baltimore still supplies most of the smaller and inferior grade of oysters aent into the marker in cans. C01IPETITI0H FOR OFFICE. Practical Civil Service at the Custom Houhc? Farewell to tUe Chairman of the Board. By the grace of the Treasury Department, the good will of the architect of the same, and permis sion of General Arthur, the Collector or the Port, the Civil Service Hoard occupy a suit of rooms lo cated on the top floor or t ha building. Yesterday tuese apartments presented a scene of marked animation, being the occasion of a competitive ex amination for thirteen vacant positions, the ap pointment for which thirty-three candidates con tested. The applicants are mostly young and flne looking men, the major portion or whom appear to have had the advautages of good education. The various problems propounded to them were solved according to their several judgments, and it will be no easy task lor the Hoard to determi'< j upon the "standard of proficiency" among these numerous competitors. During the examination a number of prominent officials visited the rooms. At one time there were present General Chester A. Arthur. Collector; General George H. Sharpe, the new Surveyor of the Port.jvho assumed active duties yesterday ; Mr. Frederick J. Philips, the Col lector's secretary ; Colonel Silas vv. Burt, Special Deputy Naval ottlcer and Chairman or the Hoard of Appeals ou Civil Service, besides the Collector's Board ?f Examiners, consisting or Deputy Collector Thomas L. James, chairman ; Special Deputy Collec tor John R. Lydecker and Special Deputy Surveyor James L. Benedict. This examination was the last over which Mr. James will preside, his term of office as Chairman and Deputy Collector expiring yesterday, while his appointment as Postmaster of the city of New York takes effect to-day. Mr. James has duly qualified, having filed his bonds in the sum or $000,000, and was sworn in yesterday by United States Commissioner John I. Davenport. Alter the examination a committee, consisting of Mr. James' colleagues In the Custom House, waited upon and carried lilm off to where an ex cellent repast hud been prepared expressly In his honor. "Carte Blanche'* was the only fluid used on the occasion, In winch bumpers were pledged to the success or the new ' Post master by his numerous friends and associates present. Collector Arthur was very happy In his remarks touching upon the career or his late Deputy in charge of the Third, the most Important diviuon, and predicted that Mr. James would be as vigorous in the performauce of his new duties as he had been in the old. General Shuipe also spoke with a good deal or vivacity, as did numerous others who were present. Messrs. James L. Benedict and Colonel Edward 9. Burton, having been reappointed, the first as Special ana the latter as Deputy Surveyor, and sworn in by General Sharpe. were alsool the company, as were Messrs. Lydecker, Lounsiterry, Phillips, Joseph Treioar, Assistant Collector Charles V. Clinch's clilei clerk, Captain Seaman, the new Captain of the Port, and others. Altogether It was a very happy leave-taking of one 01 the moat efficient and popular public officers ol our extensive Customs Department. In the interim, au< until the va cancy of Depnty Collector or the Third division is filled, Colonel Robert Des Antes, Mr. James' chief clerk, will act in that capacity. A HEW JUDICIAL DEAL IN NCWAH&. The legislature Does Away with Thirty four "Squireen Lawgivers." Ye?terday, by an act passed by the present New Jersey Legislature, thirty-four expounders and dealers in Buch law as they knew, namely-:? The Justices of the Peace, who have long held Court ? and oftentimes very high old court at that ? suf lered decapitation, officially, and to-day will bring in, with April Fool, the new dispensation In the form or two District Courts, whose duties It will be to bear and try all cases which heretofore have been solely brought forward in the J nstices' Courts. The cause for the abolishment of tbe small Courts was the reckless haste with wbich thoughtless people went to law on trifling matters and the notorious corruption* which had crept into practice at some or the squireens' courts. Some time ago, a scandalous Dog berry?the very worst, as he was the first of bis degraded class In Newark? was fined |50 for extorting illegal tees from citizens. Others have also been lined or severely reprimanded. Hence great discredit was brought on the whole system of small courts, and as In all similar cases, the good have to bear the blame with the bad. The law which goes into effect to-day, establishes two Courts, with a lawyer appointed as Judge in each Court, and the usual clerk, Ac. As a matter of course the old Dogberries do not retire without a growl. They say a blow has been struck at consti tutional rights and that the District Courts are an other step towards the grand rederal scheme of ceotraliKutlou; that they are chiefly la the interest 01 lawyers as they only t an be heard In the Courts: that they cannot do all th6 work, and that, generally, the law is an outrage on the people and the Justices. It will cost the city. It is claimed, uot tess Man $30, ooo per annum to run the Courts. Some of the justices threatened, in spite ol the law, which only applies to Newark, to take offices In the county beyond the city limits aud go on as before. They have power, they think, havlug been elected for the county. On the other hand, It is declared that the new courts will deal out justice fairly, and, having salaried officers, will not be so readily corrupted. Yesterday two chamoers lor the courts were hired In Market street, and to day Judges Stevens and Tuttle will commence business, it is considered a strange oversight on the part of the Common Council Committee that rooms for both Courts should be hired in one building. The growls of the dispossessed justices to the contrary notwithstanding, a great many people are disposed to sing with the English poet laureate Kin* out the old, rlna In the lews King cut the ftilik' , nn? In thr true. FATAL &UN0VEB CASUALTY, Coroner Herrman yesterday held an inquest In the case of John O'Brien, a lad eight years of age, who died at tbe residence of his parents, Eighty eighth street, between Lexington and Fourth ave nues. On tbe 5th of November last deceased was at play ntar the corner of Eighty -slxtn street and Fourth avenue, when he was run over by a horse attached to a milk wagon, driven by William Por ter, who, it Is alleged, was going at a rapid rate. Porter was immediately taken to the station house. b'it afterward released. The Injured boy lingered tin the 18th ult., when death ensocd. It appearing to the satisfaction or the jury that the occurrence wa^ accidental they accordingly rendered a verdict to that effect. BROOKLYN COMMON COUNCIL.

Commissioner Van Nort, of the Department of Public Works, has addressed the following letter to the Common Council in relation to the regulating and grading of Fourth avenue, between 110th and 124th streets Oitt or New Tors, 1 DsrABTMBKT or Public Works, 237 Kroud WAV. > Nkw York, March 31, 1H73. ) To the Honorable tiie Common Council or tub Citt or Nkw York : ? Olnti.kmen? The undersigned respectfully presents to the notice of the Common Council the condition of the ungraded portion of Fourth avenue, between Ulith and 124th streets, In connection with the work now in progress for .sinking the tracks of the New Kork and tlarlem Rail road. Unless the avenue is regulated and graded hetween 119th street und l-'4th street at the .same time the excava tion is made ter sinking the tracks, It will have to lie afterwards don? at far greater expense and with greater risk of lite than It can he done in counccuon with the alteration and sinking of the tracks, as there will remain a very large quantity of rock on tlie west side of the rail tracks Iroin lmth street to 124th street, about forty tect wide mid in some places over thirty seven teet aiiove the grade tor the avenue, and over tlftv leet above the sunken trucks, and Itn removal hereafter will be almost ccrtain to impede or stop travel on the railroad and endanger all passing trains. Anordiuancc was passed by the Common Council in 1863 lor regulating, grading, setting curb und gutter and flagging the part of the avenue in question, but it was found tlist the valuation ot the property was too small to allow ot tlie work being done by assessment. It Is now believed that it will bear the expense of regulating the portion that will be left alter the making of the improve ment now in progress. As the avenue is regulated up to 116th street, and the portion between there und ll0th street requires much tilling, it would appear most judicious to coinpleto the whole length to 124th street in one contract, but on ac count ot the nature of the work alongiilde the railroad it is leared that, if done in the usual way by public letting, interference with tne contractor lor sinking the tracts would ensue, and the work of completing the grading be delayed till alter the radroad improvements were com pleted. The undersigned would suggest that an ordinance be passed authorizing the regulating and grading of such portion of the Fourth avenue, between 116th and 124th streets, as lies on each side ol the improvements uow making tor railroad purposes, and that the work be done otherwise than by public letting to the lowest bidder, if it shall be deemed tor the best interests of the city to do ao. Very respectfully, GEO, M. VAN NORT, Commissioner of Public Works. Collection of Aaaeasmenta. Commissioner Van Nort, of the Department of Public Works, bas transmitted to the Collector of Assessments for collection forty-three assessment lifts lor street improvements, amounting to $35.1,032 17, and Are assessment lists for street openlags amounting to $60,098 28, making an aggre gate Of $403,190 46. REAL ESTATE MATTERS. Public Sales at the New York and Brook lyn Kxehangea. Business at the Exchange yesterday, as a begin ning lor the present week, made a very fair show, the attendance of bidders being more numerous than at any period during tho past two weeks.

Mr. Dexter Hawkins appeared to conduct the in vestigation on tbe part of the Council of Political Reform, and Mr. Rufus F. Andrews for Mr. Young. Mr. Hawkins delivered an opening address, in which he stated that he should submit evidence showing that Mr. Yonng, as Clerk to tbe Board ol Supervisors, had signed warrants to the amount of over six million dollars, and for claims that bad not passed through the proceedings of the Board of Supervisors and were not to be found on the published minutes of tbe Board. As to the division of these proceeds be said he should be able to show that the checks 01 Woodward had been passed to the private banking account of J. B. Young in "the Shoe and Leather Bank," bnt only a twenty-eighth part of that wbtch Mr. W. M. Tweed had received, so that It might be said that it had been regarded by the late "King" that it took twenty-eight "Youngs" to make "one Tweed." He did not claim that there was any criminality on the part of Mr. Yonng, but be did claim that there was gross negligence and such negligence that lia thought it not unlikely that a relorm Board of Supervisors would deem It ad visable to remove a clerk who had been guilty of negligence so gross as that which he should call their attention to. Documentary evidence was given of a very lengthy character, with which the publlo are tamliiar by the Tweed trials, and Mr. Talntor gave evidence as to the correctness of these documents. At the close of this examination Mr. Hawkins asked permission to obtain from the Mayor a document that His Honor hod, and this document wad obtained and read by Mr. Hawkins. It was addressed to the Board ol Supervisors, but as the committee of that Board had this matter under Investigation U was sent ior their une. This document contains the main points of the charges against Mr. Young, aud is given below, with the exception ol tbe details as shown in several columns ol figures and tables which were appended. After the reading ol this document the committee adjourned until Saturday next at eleven o'clock, when Mr. Tatntor and Mr. Earle will be the princi pal witnesses. THE CORRESPONDENCE. Comptboi.lkr's Ofhck, March 29, 1873. To Wiilmm F. Havkmkykk, Mayor:? I deem It my duty to transmit to you a report made to me rotative to certain punt transactions ot the clerk of the Hoard ot Supervisors, whose acts, 1 understand, tire now the subject ot investigation by a committee ot that Board, and am very respectfully yours, ANDREW H. GKKEN, Comptroller. New Yobk, Jan. 16, 1873. Hon. Akprew II. Green, Comptroller:? Hia? I deem it my duty to call your attention to certain facts regarding the adminiitraiion ot the duties ot the Clerk ot the hoard ot Supervisors which have come to my notice during an investigation ol the late lrauds against Uie county. 1 have examined the proceedings in printed form of the Hoard ol supervisors from January 1, 1868, to May, 1870, tor the purpose of ascertaining tbe dates o( action by that Hoard or by any of its com milieus upon the **>,312,5.1 37 of claims passed by the special or interim Board, consisting of tlie Mayor, Comptroller and President ot the Hoard of Supervisors aud paid by the Comptroller, which in terim Hoard was created by section 4, chapter 382, ot the l>awsofl87U. Iliad no correspondence in amount be tween any of the bills purporting to have been allowed by the interim Hoard aud those in corresponding names, to which reference is had In the printed proceedings above referred to, except in the case of about seventy thousand dollars of minor claims. This comparison ol amounts shows that no claims passed by the interim Board of Audit had ever been re ferred to Uie Board of Supervisors or to any member or committee thereof, with the exception of the seventy tiiousaud dollars ol rlulms above rcterred to. The resolution adopted by the interim Hoard directs the County Auditor to collect from the appropriate com mittees ol the Board of Supervisors all bills and liabili ties against the county Incurred nrior to April AS, 1870, ami amounts now due thereon, and ihat the evidence of the same be the authorisation of tbe same by the said Hoard ot supervisors or Its appropriate committees on certificate ot Clerk or President. The remnant ot these vouchers now in the Department of finance show on their taee either the full name of W. M. Tweed or W. M. Tweed, i hairuiau, and E. A. Wooii ward, Clerk of Committees, purporting to certify to tlie correctness of the bills incurred ou the authority of the board of Supervisors. An Inspection of the list shows over ninety -eight per cent of the $6,312,641 37 passed by this inlrriu i Board was for expense purporting to have been Incurred between January 1, ltfctf, and July, 1870. Tbe wurrunts issued in payment of the $6,312,541 37 are all countersigned by J. B. Young, Clerk of the Board of Supervisors. I respectlullv suggest Ihat the gross frauds which have been so successfully carried through in releronce to these claims never could have been consummated had Mr. Young excrciscd ordinary vigilance in signing the war rants. lie had acted as Clerk of the Board ot Supervisors for years, and was fully conversant with all the matters be fore the new Hoard, and must have known thut these claims had never been l>e:ore the Hoard of Supervisors lor approval, and that they had not been "collected from the at proprlatc committees thereof," as provided in the resolution ol the interim Board. Notwithstanding this he signed all tbe warrants tor the claims, withou.. appar ently, one word of objection. Among vouchers certified to and paid under the admin istration of the present Court llou.-c Commissioners, aud on tile in the Couuty Hureau, are the billowing A bill ot George s. Miller, lor carpenter work on new Court t loose, May 5 to November 9, 1870, paid December 22,lh/0 $47,650 28 A bill of George H. Miller, lor same service, Nov ember 10 to December 1, 1870, paid Jauuary 14, 1871 1,876 60 A bill in name of A. J. Smith, for carpi ts, oil cloths, shades, Ac., paid December 27, 1870 39,181 85 A bill in uamo of A. U. Miller, for cabinet work, paid December 28, 1870 38,168 15 A bill of A. J. t.arvey, for mason work, paid De cember#), lt>70 55,661 53 The allidavits upon each of these lulls purport that the respective parties appeared and verilled the same before J. II. Young, ( oiuinissioner of Deeds. This Commissioner of Deeds is Mr. Young, the Clerk of the Hoard bf supervisors. The signatures to the affida vitsot Ueorge S. Miller are believed to be forgeries. No such persons as A. J. Smith or A. O. Miller are known to have existed, at least not lor the purposes tor which the names were used. Mr. Uarvcy states that he never swore to the bill ; that he placed his signature to the affi davit at the time the bill was prepared ; that no notary or commissioner of deeds had signed the affidavit at the time, aud that he never appeared before any such offi cial tor the purpose ol making oath to this bill. None of the blank spaces In the body ot the form of affi davit left lor the purpose of inserting the natne of the partv purporting to make the oath are filled up. Re spectfully, 11. K. TAIN TUB. Hon. Anna*# H. Green, Comptroller:? Sir? Under the date of January 16, 1873, 1 addressed a communication to vou relative to certain delinquencies ot the Cterk of the Hoard ot Supervisors iti the adminis tration of the duties ot his olflce, and in connection with his official acts as a commissioner of deeds, wliieh facts have been brought t<. mv attention during a general and extended investigation of the lato frauds against the county. I hail long been of the opinion that the enormity nnd transparency ol these Irregularities eould not have es caped the notice ol a vigilant and scrupulous official, charged by law with the countersigning of all warrants for the disbursement of money in the department to which his duties were contlned. Various rumors to the effect that Mr. Yonng had shared In the plunder coming to my ears troin time to time, und minor tacts beiBI Constantly brought to light, led to the conviction that the signing of about eighteen million dol lars ot couuiv warrants, involving fraud in three and a halt years, was attributable to some other cause than mere negligence, and caused me about a month since to procure a copy ot Mr. Youug's account with the shoe and Leather National Bank, tor the purpose of ascertain ing whether any ot the moneys stolen iroiii the County Treasury usere traceable to Mr Younf from either of tho two principal distributors tor the "Ring" ? to wit: Wood ward and lnger?oll. The results of this examination are shown In statements sutfmltted herewith marked "A'' and "B" respi ettvclv. Statement "A" shows payments to Mr. Young by Woodward, evidently from proceeds of miscellaneous county warrants. The dates of deposit ol fraudulent war rants or proceeds thereof by woodward, ami those of his payments to Young. are usually Identical, particularly after Mav, 1863, and prior to the ii.trrim Hoard of IM70. These payments, directly traced from January, 186#, to April, 1870, amount to $2U,?oi 6.V Statement "It" shows proceeds of "special audit" (or "county liabilities'') warrants deposited by Woodward between May 6 and Augusts, 1870, and Woodward's pay ments to Mr. Young from the proceeds of these warrants. Woodward's deposits during this period amount to $3,661, IKt JR. of which all hut $11,716 70 are proved to have been derived from the public treasury, and ot this latter ?mount more than one-half Is believed to be from the same source. These payments to Young amount to $27,245 811. The number of deposits of these county ftinds made by Woodward during this period, as shown by the table, Is twentv-tive. and in twenty-three of these eases are there Immediate and direct payments by Woodward to Young. In seventeen out of the twenty three Instances ol pay ment Mr. Young's deposits were coincident in date with those of Woodward, while in the remaining six cases Mr. Young appears to have deposited the day fol lowing except when sfnday Intervened, when the de posits were made the second dav. The amount of the stolen money, shown by tables "A" and "B" to have been paid to Young, Is $56,697 35. I am credibly intit-med that Mr. Young has expressed him -elr as dissatisfied with hU portion, considering all he had done and the responsibilities and risks lie had assumed. Valuing bis ser vices and ventures according to the amount of monev stolen through his instrumentality, and comparing his share ol the spoils <so far us shown) with this amount and with the portions received by his co-eonspirators there appears a reasonable ground tor his discontent. In the case of the payment of $5,708 o7. April 9, 187D, I am informed, and believe It can be proved, that Wood ward Jocularly remarked to an associate at the time "that ho had lust given Young his bone'" referring to snd naming a check for more than $6,1X10 which he had given him. , I have been unable, IVom lack of time, to complete an examination ot payments to Mr. Young fcy J. H. Ingersoll. Respectfully referring you to the previous communica tion above alluded to, f am, Ac., H. F. TAINTOB. Nk?r You.., March 26, 1873 ^ DEIE0T1VB D0IH03. Theodore B.
