The Trial of George Shefflin, Indicted for the Murder of ills Wife? Particular# of the Alleged Murder?' Ten Juror* OI? talncil- l'anva*?in|S the Subject of Free Love? Intimity from Jealousy the De fence. On the reassembling of the Court of Oyer and Terminer yesterday morning? Judge Brady on the bench? the room was crowded. The case or George Shefflin, indicted for the murder of his wife, had been set down for trial, and this was enough to draw together a large und curious throng, who aeem to reliBh nothing so much as supping on the borrors incidental to a murder trial. Shciliin was brought promptly into Court. He is a large man, and decidedly unprepossessing in his appearuace. The FACTS OF TUE Ml'KUKH. The offence for which he is indicted is still fresh in the public memory. He and his wife oc cupied apartments at No. 414 Fast Eleventh sjj?et. The statement Is that when the police entered the place on the morning of the 14lli ol January last they found Mrs. She HI in lying dead in a pool of blood, auti near her the mother ui Mr. shefflin and a sister, in a state at beastly intoxication. On ex amination Mrs. shefflin was found to be dead, her skull fractured and her tody covered with bruises. Meantime She ill to had ran away, but Detectives Bennett ana Clupp speedily tracked the fugitive to Ms hiding plait; and arrested him. On his arrest be confessed to killing his wlic, but stild that lie did it In a lrenz.v of jealousy, having found another man In bed with her. Oil being brought into court be was given a seat in the rear ol his counsel, Mr. William F. Howe and Abe H. Hummel. The prose Cation was represented by District Attorney Phelps and Assistant District Attorney Lyon. lhe first thing, of course, was GUTTING A JURY. This was but a repetition of the preliminary scenes in most murder trials. Mr. Howe, who was assisted by Mr. Hummel, questioned t lie jurors with his accustomed skill and judgment, as also did the counsel for the prosecution. The circumstances of the killing being of the peculiar kind described, Mr. Howe questioned cacn one particularly on the ?uoject of their views regarding "iree love." The answers of some of the Jurors to these uuestlons were of an amusing character and greatly served to relieve this part oi the ease from the dull tedium that otherwise would nave ensued. Such was the rigidnesH of the questioning, however, that from the panel of one hundred jurors summoned only ?ten Jurors were obtained. Tlie following are the names of the Jurors:? Martin Briggs, Uebert F. Cook, Francis A. Murdock, Hugh c<>ckraii, Henry O. HFentworth, Frederick W. Hand, Henry D. Ryder, ileury Klennor, Eiuil F. SchaifT and Joseph Ewing. AKOrilKR I'ANKI.

He ordered another panel of ! oo for to-day, and meantime cautioned the jurors already obtained against talking about the case or reading anything regarding it. in the newspapers, I and then adjourned the Court till half-post ten o'clock this morning. THE CASE 0F CARL V0ST. Th? Prussian Treaty of Extradition? A Very Nice duration of International law? Wrlti of Habeas Corpus and Cer Itsrarl. Yesterday the case of Carl Vogt, alias Joseph Sttipp, came up liefore Commissioner Kenneth G. White. The prisoner, it will tie remembered, who Is claimed to lie a Prussian subject, is charged With having committed the crime of mur- , der at Brussels, Belgium. There is a- law tm existence in Prussia which declares that if a Prussia* subject commit wur der In n foretpn h? may ** tried for that otlenee li V?nn<l or brought within the hirl*- '? diction of I'.ngsia. The latter country now forma part oi Vne Nortli German Umpire, un?l tlie authori tics of that Kmpire have made a demand uj.on the government of the United Htaiea for the extradi t'Ou of v?gt to Germany, w that he may be tried ; mere tor the crime which, it in alleged, he pas com i mittrd in Belgium. There in no extradition treaty between the United Mates and Bclgiuu), and hence the government of the latter country could mute no application to the United States for the extra dition of Vojrt that oonld be attended to by the Secretary of State. When the case was called yesterday the prlsener, accompanied by some friends, rut in an appearauce. lie was represented by his counsel, Mr. W. T. Kint/.lng. Ex-Governor folomons at tended as couusel for the German government. Mr. JohauneA Koesing, the Consul General OJ Ger many, was also present. Mi. KlntziUK said he was not ready to no on with the examination, as he had that morning made an apulu alion to J udfe liiatchford lor writs of habeas corpus and certiorari for the purpose of deciding tlie first and great question In the case? whether or not, admitting all the facts to be true as set forth in the complaint, the Prussian govern ment had any right to claim the extradi tion of the accused under the treaty of 180'J, as tins treaty provided only lor an odcnce committed wi;hiu the Jurisdiction of Prussia, and this Juris diction, he maintained, was confined to the ter ritory of that couutry, while the offence charged was committed in the kingdom of Medium. He cxpccted every moment that Judge liiatchford would grant the writs. Kx-Govcrnor Selomons approved of the sugges tion of Mr. lilut/.iug. It was not necessary to go into any lengthy examination oi the testimony until the question was first passed upon by tlie Judge whether this was a proper case to be brought within the treaty. The Commissioner said lie was perfectly willing that thiB course should be taken and then ad journed the case for a week. ?Subsequently Judge liiatchford granted in tlie above case writs of habeas corpus and certiorari, returnable this morning at eleven o'clock. BUSINESS IN THE OTHEB COTJBTS. SUPREME COURT? TRIAL TERM -PART I. Merchants Hunt Know to Whom They are Selling Goods. Before Judge Davis. In i860 Mr. L. S. Lenhelm ran tlirec stores? one In Great Bend, I'a. ; one in Ulngbamton, this State, and the third in Mcadville, l'a. A brother of his liad charge of tlie latter store. Mr. Lenhelm bought largely of Clafiin A Co.. of thlH city, and hla bills were all pretty promply paid. A lire reduced to ashes the Meadvllle establishment, and as there was no insurance ou the place the loss lell heavily ou Mr. Leuheiin. This caused some delay in the settlement of the latter's accounts, but they were finally adjusted. Meantime, plicenlx-like. another store reared Itself Irom the ashes of the Meadvillo store, and Messrs. Clatlin k Co. sold liberally to the brother of Mr. Lenhelm, supposing, however, as had been the ease previously, that the purchases were on account of his brother. Finally, when the bill ran up to $3,354 78, and finding that Mr. L. S. Leuheiin would not pay, suit was brought to com pel the latter to pay. The case was tried yesterday In this Court, and resulted in a dismissal of the complaint, the moral of tho suit being that mer chants should Know to whom they sell goods. SUPERIOR COURT-TRIAL TERM-PART I. Concerning Land In Virginia and the Practice of Law on Original Princi ples. Before Judge Friedman. Johu O. Clute was, and is still, for that matter, owner of 1,300 acres of land in Kanawha county, Virginia. Understanding that Mr. Clinton Roose velt, owning land in the vicinity, proposed visiting the locality, ho wrote him a note, stating that if, after set-lag the laud, he desired to purchase It, he would let him have it at $3 per acre. Mr. Roose velt did not go, but a nephew of his did, and he re ported is Juvor of tho purchase. The fact was, and It way be true, that oil had beefi discovered em bosomed in the rocky strata, but or this fact Mr Clute had meantime been informed. The result was that when Mr. Roosevelt came Hind tendered him $9,:ioo for the land, w hich was the price agreed upon, lie refused to accept it. Upon this suit was brought against Mr. Clute to compel compliance with the contraot, and a referee te whom the matter was referred reported m favor of dismissing the complaint, which was done. The particulars of this suit were published in full at the time in the Herald. The cuse came up, however, yesterday in a new phase in this Court. Mr. Roosevelt assigned his claim to David Grosbeck, and the latter brought suit for damages for non-fulfllment of the con tract. This suit was also dismissed on the grouud that the previous action was a l>ar to its prosecu tion. Among the witnesses called was Mr. Clinton Roosevelt, a portion of wIiobo examination was as lollows:? "Arc you a member of tbe bar, Mr. Roosevelt ?" "No sir; but 1 practise law lor all that." "Uow does it happen that you practise law if you v ere never admitted to the bare" "The Courts allow me to practice." "So, thcu, you have studied Mrot',L. ??Oh yes.sir^'i, _ "Why wfcri you never admitted to practice?"

Interesting Reading tor Taxpayer?? fluent toning the Validity of Law* and the Actions of Public Officers. Befere Judge Pratt. Judge Pratt yesterday denied tho motion of Thomas Prosser for the continuance of the injunc tion restraining the Board of Education Iron ap plying a certain sum of money, 141,000, to other purposes than the erection of a public school house in the Twepty- first ward. Mr. Prosser contended that this amount had been appropriated by tho joint board for the erection of a school building iu that ward, and that, therefore, tlte Board of Education, who had determined to make school Improvements in other wards? had no right to exjvjud it for any other purpose. The case has excited considerable comment in official and private circles in Brooklyn, and the decision of the Court was looked forward to with interest. In his decision, Judge Pratt says:? It is unnecessary to examine the merits or this contro versy, as it appears from the complaint that no private right of the plaintiff Is mooted or injury threatened to him, which is not equally a grievance to all the other taxpayers in the district de scribed. No injury peculiar to the plaintiff is threatened, assumiug that all that is stated in the complaint is true. In a greater or less degree every person In tliat part or tne city is interested in having a school established upon the lot designated, and It may be and proba bly is true that a (allure to build a sciioolhouse iu that locality will be a serious injury to all the in habitants or the neighborhood. The rule Is well settled that for wrougs against the public, whether actually committed or only apprehended, the rem edy Is by a prosecution Instituted hy some officer authorized by law to act in its bchair. Any otker rule would Involve the community in excessive litigation and harass public officers with vexatious suits, if every taxpayer had a right to question th* validity or TnE law or tub action of a VPblIu officer in the Courts in respect to his rights in common with other taxpayers no law could be executed, no tax collected and no officer permitted to per form bis duties. When an act of the Legislature or the action or a public officer affects the private rights of a citizen he has his appropriate remedy I by suit, but If his grievance consists in a wrong, | not an Jnjury to his individual rights, hut in one, he suffers in common with his fellow citizens, he must in\oke the action of the officer or party empowered to sue In such cases. These views are only applicable to the cases where a private person, or a number of persons, assume in behalf ol the public, or in their own names, to challenge publlcoffleers to meet thetn In the Courts to doiend their olllclal duties. Every citizen is pre sumed to be Interested in having the law faithfully executed and is thereby qualified to be u party or relator to a suit, proceeding in behalf of the peo ple to compel public officers to perforin the duties imposed by law ; but there is a wide distinction between the latter proceeding and a private suit to CHAMPION TnE HtfHITS OF TI!F. COMMUNITY, and It is one rounded on reason and public policy. Neither will the assumption that the deleudauts, the Hoard orF.ducatlou, are officers ol the city ol Brook lyn, or a bureau ol the city government, change the aspect of the case. Section 21 or Title 11 of the charter of the city of Brooklyn does not describe the defendants uor apply In any manner to the property or funds iu the possession ol the Board of Education. It is Immaterial te t lie decision of this motion to determine whether I he Hoard ol Educa tion is a quasi corporation, created hv statute, in dependent, otthe control of the Common Cornell, and placed in charge ol the educational interests within the territory of the city, or t at the mem bers thcreorare city officers exercising the luuc tlons prescribed by law. Subordinate and respon sible to the authorities or such affairs as the plaintiff by his bill of complaint appears to have n? standing in Court to maintain ills action against the defendant Board in either capacity. The mo. tlon to continue the Injunction is therefore denied, with f 10 costs. The Third Avenue Sewer Assesments. A motion was made yesterday for the vacation of the assessment for the Third avenue sewer on cer tain property of John G. Leeds, in Prospect avenue (Middle street), between Filth and Sixth avenues. The petitioner claimed that alter the original con tractor for the work had failed, the Water and sew erage Hoard gave the balance or the work, without advertising lor proposals, to one Keener, at an ad vance of f 120,0 0 on the original contract job. Counsellor De Witt held that, in accordance with a clause 111 each contract, the Board could, titer an original contractor had failed, give the balance of the work out without advertising. The original contractor weuid be charged with the deficiency. Mr. Leeds only objected to being assessed for'the excess allowed the second contractor. Judgo Pratt intimating that he would decide to that effect, counsel arranged to agree upon a state ment of lacts to be presented to t tie General Term. Divorcing a Colored Mlnlater. Rev. Alexander H. Newton, a colored clergyman, brought suit against his wire, Vlctorlne, an oc toroen of about twenty years, for an absolute dl. vorce on the ground of adultery, and the case was referred. Yesterday tho referee reported in favor of allowing the divorce, and an appli'-ntion for the same was granted by Judge Pratt. Pli;; divorced couple lived In Pineapple street. COURT OF SESSIONS.

I received more than the alluded to, but I cannot say how much ; it wns all used to pay for my legal services for thcco ol other counsel und tor up pearances before the legislative committee; during all n?y five yi urs1 connection with the Krie (Company I never spoke to a member of the Legislature concerning legislative matters outside of the committee rooms; 1 do not recollect seeing Mr. Uutcher since latt Winter. To Mr. Jlabcock? I niny have paid out some ol this amount lor election purposes in lHtiH, and possibly in 1H69, bui never to be used in Senatorial or other legisla tive elections; It was for a genorul election; I was at that time chairman of the Republican General Commit tee. and (lOUI.n CONTRIHUTKD SON* TO TIIK KLrCTION Kl'NI", about five thousand dollars; I received about fifteen

received ilnce 1870 have been tor mv own professional thousand dollars per year tor my own services ; nil I have services; I have no knowledge of money being usea to Intlucuce the Legislature nor ol lis being used to elect Senators or others. Mr. l.incoln examined the witness; ho reiterated his statements. To Mr. Carpenter? There were besides me acting as counsel tor the Erio Company Mr. Onager and Judge 1'iuker, us I thought; but he denies it, and therefore ho must have acted lor Mr. Uould personally; 1 ACTKI) BKKORK TIIK LKQ IS LATUM in matters in which tlie Krle Company was alone inter isted; cannot tell of any else here In Alhiny; Van Vccluenctid not act In such capacity ; do not remember of his appearing before \he Legislature ; I practice In the courts In this city and district; don't rccollect of Van Vcchten ever appearing In the courts here as practitioner during the last lour years in any of tlx se Eric sui's; still he may have done so; don't recollect of Harbor doing so; dou't know of Tweed appearing as u practitioner In any oi these suits ; nor Mr. Little. To Mr. Btiekney? Tweed was a member ol the Senate from 1WS8 to 1872; don't know particularly how ho acted concerning Erie matters; in lHbH 1 believe he was opposed to them; utter that I think lie acted favorably in them; (iould made donations lor the rcpuldicun ticket on two occasions when elections wore coming on; don't knnw of any professional services rendered by Senator J. Wood or an v other member of the Legislature ; think I paid re tainers to counsel in bank bUls, but 1 huve no recollection ofnarticular cases. To Mr. Wright? My own services were solely in ap pearing before the legislative committed ' and ihitking up a pa'mphiet; don't romember ol Van Vechten or Sur lier aver making arguments before u committee; 1 know Van Vechten has done services for tlie Erlo Company ; he has drawn hills, amendments, counter bills und propo sitions; cannot now, from recollection, state what I ills, hut know that bills drawn tiy him havo been submitted ; have often seen him In conversation with Gould ; don't know of sny service Barber has performed for the Erie Company. To Mr. Stlckney? I understand that Barber Is not a law yer ; cannot undorstund what legul services he per formed calling tor pay to the amount of S4i>,u00 to 930,000. This ended the examination of Mr. Harris, and JOHN V. U I'RUVN WAS CAI.LKD. He affirmed and said I am a director of the Eric Rail way Company; I voted against tlio dividend on the com mon stock; I objected to it because I did not think the Jionrd was sufficiently Informed as to the true amount of tlie earnings'. Witness then stated his reasons for his vote. He wanted the company to wait till It became stronger; there were a great many objections to tho act. in his opinion; oao director, Mr. Ollphant, ho thought, ob jected qji the ground that ho did not think the equipment had been kept up ; the sunt of 2>? per cent was paid for nonotiuting the bonds; that was a laive percentage, but my Impression was, dealing with the firm ot Hlscholfs lieini A Co., who took the contract: it was a very good one ; under ordinary clrcnustances one or two per ccut ought to be enough. To Mr. Lincoln? The argument in the Board in favor of a dividend was that the English stockholders wanted the amount earned, whatever it was, divided ; In u general point of view it was not proper to reimburse BiseholTs nelin A Co. for the expenses in effecting the oiup d'etat which out on the cloula directors; that wan not a legiti mate charge upon the company. The committee tUen adjourned till to-morrow afternoon. THE JPSTH CASE. > ' ~Nkw York, April 14, 1873. To tite Editor op the Hbraij>:?
