In the Justh scandal case, on trial before Justice Bncdeker, in the Jamaica Court House, Queens county, a session was held yesterday. Most of the brie' session was taken up in a passage of words between counsel, and consequently of no mortal interest to anybody but themselves and whatever friends they may have that might be effected by tbe billingsgate tourney in which they engaged. The case of the prosecution closed with the privi lege of calling the notorious Dr. Grindle and his wile on Friday next, to which day the case was ad iourned. Application was made yesterday before Judge Barrett, at Supreme Court, Chambers, for a manda mus directing the Comptroller to pay various par ties who had acted as clerks of the Board of Super visors.

Dross-Examination of Sbefllin? He Ad heres Tenaciously to His Original Htory a? to the Killing of Hli Wife Close of the Testimony and Summing Up by Counsel? Judge IJrudy'i Charge to tlie Jury. The fourth and concluding day of the trial of Beorge Kheffiin on a charge of murdering his wife on the 14th ol last Jauuary, in the rear tenement house 414 East Eleventh street, drew as large a crowd yesterday in the Court of Oyer and Ter miner, Judge Brady on the bench, as on the previous days. Prompt in their places were the prosecuting counsel, District Attorney Phelps and his assistant, Mr. Lyon, as also the faithful and ontlring counsel of the prisoner, Mr. William F. Dowe and Abe H. Hummel. CROSS-EXAMINATION OF TUB PRISONER. It will be remembered that concluding the pro ceedings of the previous day was the testimony of Bhefflin in his own behalf. Directly after the Court was called to order he was ngaln placed on the witness stand Tor cross-examination by the District Attorney. This examination was a long and searching one, bnt, as will be seen, be adhered tenaciously to his original statement. He said that he had lived only six weeks with his wife since their marriage ; she had got beastly drunlc two days after the wedding ceremony, and had ; been alnio&t continually Intoxicated since i that time until the day of her death; I when he went into his wife's room the 1 man ran out of it ; so that he could net see who he j waa; nis wife was lying in the bed naked when he v:atin; he tried to raise her up, but found she waa too drunk; he did stand her on her feet aud ?lapped her on the lace, alter which she fell on the Door, falling against the edge oi the stove ; he saw no blood then, and sat down to tn<>urn over his mis fortunes; alter a while he went, to bed, hut got up ?ran to look alter Ids wife; not finding her in tke room he went out into the yard, and found her body lying in the snow ; his sister Mary t old him Maria was dead, which was the first he knew of it; this wan in the morning; lie had a drink that morn ing; his mother gave it to him as lie was In bed ; bis mother, Mary and he all .irauK ; this was before be knew Maria was dead; he told Mary to get up and dress herself, and she cume and told him Maria was dead; he then sot up ami examined her, and lound she was dead; he then went out and told a lager beer saloon keeper about Maria's death and how it happened; after this he went to an undertaker's; he did net tell his mother or Mary or any one about Maria iielng out in the yard in tt-e cold lor an hour; lie s&t up that night lor three hours; the cold drove him to bed: he did not think there was a tire in the stove: all he said to Maria was, "You blackguard, I have caught a man In bed with you;" he swore before God and man that he only strHCk her one blow; he did not kick her or treat her with any other violence. CLOSING TESTIMONY FOK THE DEFENCE. Patrick Hadden, undertaker, testified that on the morning of the 15th of last January Sheffllu came to his place and told him lus wife was dead and the circumstances of her death ; ne advised him to go to the Coroner's office: he saw his wife once; about three years ago he furnished a coffin ?or axhild of hers and the prisoner. Q. What was the wo?au's condition? The question was objected to. Mr. Howe said he wished to show that when the child was in the coffin she lay beastly drunk on the floor. The question was ruled out and then Mr. Plsher was recalled, who stated that the prisoner asked him to go to the Coroner's office and give lnforma liou of nis wife's death, which he did. REBUTTING TESTIMONY. Mr. Howe stated that he rested here, and there upon Mr. Phelps called Mary McGulnn. She testi fied that she lived at 414 East Eleventh street, in January last. u. were you in the yard on the morning of Mrs. gjhefflin's death? Mr. Howe? 1 object; it is leading. Mr. Phelps? How so? Mr. Howe? You have taken Mrs, McGinn into the trard. The question was put In another form and wit ness proceeded to state that she went into the yard on the morning of the 16th of January, to not some water at the hydrant; she ran against Mrs. Kheftlln and said she was afraid she hurt her; Mrs. bhefflin said she had more trouble than that and told her her son had treated his wife horribly ; Mrs. bhefflin had a pan In which was bloody water. Cross-examined by Mr. Howe ? .she slept in the house that night and heard no noise. Redirect? Hne lived two flights of stairs up; about six o'clock the evening before she saw the prisoner's wife: she seemed to be ail right and was nice and tidy. To a Juror? She had never had any difficulty with the family? Roundsman Riley, recalled, testified that oM Mrs. Hhefflin to.d him, "George did this;" he asked her where George was and she said he had gone away. StTMMINO PP THE CASE. The above concluded the testimony on both sides and Mr. Howe proceeded to sum up to the jury. His address, which was most attentively listened lo, occupied considerably over an hour, and, con sidering the desperate case he had to deal with, was most ably managed. He was thankful, he said, that he was not the advocate of a man who had committed murder. The simple Issue was whether the prisoner should be acquitted alto gether or he convicted ?( vue oi the uouui degrees of manslaughter. As he stated in bis open ing, there was so element of murder in the case. He defined murder and then applied tbe definition to the caae of the prisoner, and alter this read tne indictment and urged that the alle gations In the indictment, carefully, elaborately and astutely as it was drawn, were not proven. The question was, whetner George Sheffiin lulled his wife, and to make this question clear be read from the statutes definitions of the various grades of manslaughter, elaborating at eloquent length upon the differences in these grades, and showing, as be urged, conclusively, that tne prisoner could not ne round guilty of anv oi them. He referred most feelingly to the good character of the pris oner, to bis untiring industry in his occupation aud to bis tender care of his aged parents. Here was a hard working man, a good citizen and a loving and dutiful son arraigned for murder. When he (Howe) thought of his sainted mother he could hardly Induce himself to speak un kindly of any woman, bnt the great and sad misfortune of this man was to marry a woman utterly devoid qf every fine and beautiful womanly Instinct; a woman of most de praved appetites and passions: a woman lost to all sense of shame and decency. Holy Writ? a higher than all common law? had declared that a woman caught in adultery should die. They were asked to estimate the prisoner as less than human ; they were to deprive him oi every sensibility ; they were to reduce nim to a stoic ? to a stone. Had Sheffiin killed his wile he would have been jus tified ; but the fact was, he urged, that he not only did not kill her, but that the evidence utterly failed to show him guilty of any such crime. He was himself impetious. and confeased that he felt augrr because h's client would not plead to man slaughter. The testimony since adduced, and par ticularly from volunteer witnesses of wealth and stauding, had placed the matter in a different light. The crowning triumph ef tue defence was the statement of Sbctnin himself? a statement simple, plain, straightforward and every word vital with the power oi bold and invincible truth. He admired George Shefllln to-day? admired him lor his self consclousnesM of rectitnde and sole reliance ou the justice of his defence. After various apt citations from the Bible, tbe statute books and from Pick wick and Scott's "Ivauhoe," he proceeded to re view at length the testimony, and particularly the medical testimony, which he gave a most scath ing overhauling. The doctors had disagreed, as tbey usually do, but it was evident, he insisted, to men or common sense that this woman had been for years a confirmed drunkard. Her drinks had beeu or the viicnt concoction, and In the end she hud died tbe drunkard's death. He dwelt, in con clusion. en the lact that when persons commit crime they do not parade It but conceal it, whereas in this case .Shettlln showed no concealment. He closed with a most eloquent and pathetic appeal, asking and demanding an acquittal at their bauds? a request and a demand carrying with it, as he claimed, simple justice? "this and not hing more." Mr. Phelps next Hummed up on behalf oi the people, aud that, too, In a strain or like rorce and eloquence. Alter alluding to the growing fre quency of murders in this city and the importance of something being done to stay the terrible tide of crrnie, he entered upon a discussion of the salient points of the testimony. The prisoner's statement to the proprietor of the lager beer saloon was enough, he insisted, to convict him of the crime of which he was accused. He said there that he had "licked tier In the house and out or it." He told a policeman that the bruises on her body must have resulted rrom his kicking her. It was evident violence had been committed, and this violence must have been at the hands or the prisoner. He drew a painrully eloquent portrayal or tne scenes in that unhappy home? scenes of drunken debauchery hardly paralled In their character. This woman lay naked, and cold, and bleeding, and helpless, an* yet, during all that long and terrible night, he could sit there aud not lilt a finger for her aid. Ill the weakness ol despair and in the wllducss oi that night she crawls into the yard, according to his story, and there he leaves her to lie in tbe snow. When he drags her into the house and throws her down by the cold and flreless stove to die in the morning, where they find her dead, they send out tor whiskey and celebrate the event ol ner death. He Insisted that her scalp could not have been removed, as it was, by tailing agaiust the stove. The plain lact was this poor, uulortu nate woman received untold blows at his hand, aud fell a victim to his brutality. As to the charge of a mau being found In bed with the wife of the prisoner, he urged that there was nothing to sub stantiate the accusation. The trouble was that they uudertook to prove too much. No provoca tion could justify such brutality as was evidenced in this case. The prisoner's wile died unquestion ably irom the results or protracted violence. The means of death were cruel and unusual. They were simply to determine whether her death was the result of premeditation on his part or from vio lence at his hands without the intent to take her llle. This was all there was in the case. He sub mitted it to them as Intelligent and conscientious men, and to give their verdict upon their con sciences and their oaths. JLlKiK BKADY'S CHAKUE. A long but most able and perspicuous charge followed from Judge Hrady. lie gave a verj clear statement or the evidence and or the law in ref erence to the various degrees of murder and man slaughter us applicable to the case. '1 he woman was at home wlien the defendant came there, and, so far as the evidence disclosed, her scalp was lu its place and her head unimpaired. The defend ant arriving, a change occurs, caused by what means it was lor the jury to determine. The evi dence was that delendant had told the lager beer man that he had licked her In the bedroom and out ol it and in the yard, and lie told captain Bennett that he had gone too far and had asked the advice of the lager beer man. As to the cause of death, Drs. Jaueway and Leo had testified that there was nothing about the internal organs to produce it: that it was not from delirium tremens, ami that tr there was a great deal or blood it resulted Irom hemorrhage. Mrs. Shettlin testified that she bled horribly. The statement or tlio prisoner was that be found a man In bed with her, and he struck her on the cheek with his open hand. She fell agatnst the stove, then went out and he took her back agalu. It was in sisted by the delence that death resulted from her Intemperance aud exposure. Evidence as to her intoxication was admitted as It bore on the cause of death, but not by way of justification or excuse. He had no right to oecome her executioner. Kven the great State of New York had 110 power to take her life. This was not a case of great excitement caused by the Invasion of marital right, bat of simple punishment, the delendant deny ing anything more than a blow. In considering whether the defendant killed the deceased the jury were to consider all the circumstances disclosed. If she did not die from the injuries received at his hands then he must be acquitted. If she did, then they were to consider the degree of the offence, whether murder or manslaughter In some of the degrees. On these questions tne prisoner's character was to be considered. Good character was not only sufficient to protect where a doubt exists, but If wittyout it tne evidence would slightly preponderate against him, it was sufficient to turn the scale in bis favor. Confessions were to be received with cau tion, but when deliberately aud voluntarily made and clearly proved they were to be consid ered as high ami satisiactory evidence and the pris oner was entitled to the benefit of the rule. Judge Brady defined the several degrees of murder aud manslaughter and charged that the jury might find him guilty in any of the degrees. As to tne third degree of manslaughter? the killing of another I11 the heat of passion without intending to effect death? courts have looked leniently upon a man who slays his wire caught in tbe act of adultery from the excitement consequent upon the discovery and momentary deprivation of con trol. But In this case the defendant denied the killing absolutely, or any violence other thau the blow. Did they believe his statement ? Was he under excitcment T Was he sustained by the evi dence ? Did he strike the deceased only, as he stated, or did he beat her as stated by him to the lager beer man t If he did, was it with the intent to kill, or was it nnder such circumstances as to make the killing wlthla one of the degrees of mau- < slaughter? WAITINO POR THE VKBDICT. At half-past three o'clock the jury retired to de liberate npon the verdict. Most or tbe crowd still lingered, or course there were all sorts of specula tions as to the verdict. About tbe most Indifferent person present was the prisoner, who chatted quite gayly with various friends gathered about him. At five o'clock the lury returned Into conrt, having sent word to Judge Brady th'at they desired farther instructions rrom him. Tie roreman stated that they desired a more roll and explicit explanation of the different grades or murder and manslaughter. Tnls explanation the Judge proceeded to give at more elaborate length than in his charge, and the Jury, Having expressed themselves rully and clearly eniightene* on the aubiect, again withdrew ror further deliberation.

The cor poration, for answers, contended, first, that Sweet nad no authority to employ plaintiff, and that Sweet represented to the President or the com pany that HiUier was his own private assistant, and paid by Himself; that the $500 was converted by said Sweet to his own use, and that lie swindled other young men iu the same way; that the rogue was now iu prison doing penance for his crimes.

STOCKS "UP." Rapid Recovery in Prices at the Stock Exchange. SECOND FAILURE OF L0CKW00D & CO. The Feeling in Wall 8treet Yeiterday? Inter view* with Mr. Legrand Lockwood? His Story of Hia Failure? Hiitory of the Honae? The First Failure the Cause of the Sec ond?What Further Mr. Brownell Had to Say? The Money Market and the Stock Exchange. It would not be too much to nay that yesterday, In Rome respects, was as trying a one to tho finan cial mind as the two days which preceded it. Things were unsettled to a great extent, and

much distrust was felt all over the street. On the whole, however, it might be termed an improved feeling were it not thai every man distrusted his neighbor more or less and sought security in a prompt adjustment of accounts. THE MONEY MARKET, on opening, was tight again, and many loans were effected at such interest as 3-16 to '4, under the fear of the settlements to be made in the afternoon. The anxiety to get money was as strong us ever, and this accounted of Itself for the tightness which was felt. As the day wore on, however, the mar ket declined, till towards evening some loans arc said to have been effected below the legul rate. THE STOCK EXC1IANOE was also the scene of great activity, and at the beginning of the call it was found that the market had become less feverish than the evening before, and there was a continued upward tendency. At an early hour, however, it was announced that the firm ot Lockwood A Co. liad suspended. At the time the announcement caused a decline generally, but as soon as It was reported to be a bear and not a bull failure a reaction set in and the higher prices resumed their sway. It might have been supposed that some Uttlo excitement reigned in the street at the announcement of the failure of a house once so famous as that of Lock wood & Co., but, strange to say, the announce ment was received with considerable indifference, and men when tbey met simply mentioned the fact to each other in a passive sort of a way as a bit of stale news which possibly subjected the man who gave It to the imputation of being a bore. The failure, therefore, was devoid of all sensational bearing as well as of any infiuence on 'Change. It perhaps, however, made men look after their own concerns a little more closely than they had done before and for the moment made business a matter of a little more vital Importance than It is to men in Wall street at all times, but there was no great talk about the matter, and a very small amount of sympathy shown. Perhaps this was owing to the times, for when times try men's souls they have but little spure feeling to sympathize with others. The house of I.EAR AND LOCKWOOD t CO, is one of the oldest in the street and one of the most respectable. It was established iu 1842 and was managed for many years by the late Legrand Lockwood and Henry Keek. It prospered and those two names were amongst the most wealthy In the street. W lien the schism of the open Board of Brokers crept into the street, and oia George llenrlques went around from one to another soliciting them to secede from the regular Hoard, Lockwood A Co. was one of the first, by Its presence, to lend strength to the movement. The house went on in this manner prospering, and when the coalition ffAH formed it went in again to the Stock Exchange. Then came the dire, dark day known so well In financial history as "Hlack Friday," and here, after battling against the terrible movement, the fine old man, who had borne such an unsullied reputa tion for a quarter of a century, had to give in to the pressuro and announce his suspension. Legrand Lockwood, however, endeavored to re habilitate himself, and succeeded so fur that he made a settlement to his creditors und resumed business, and was rapidly recovering from the blow which had struck liliu when came a sudden attack of pneumonia, lrom walcli he died, but many said it was broken heart more thau any thing else which killed Legrand Lockwood. Since that time the house has been managed by the sous of the deceased gentleman ami on the basis of settlement which he had made. It is true tne firm never u?sume<l the same importance In Wall street affairs as it had done, but waa doing well until the sudden suspension yesterday, which was quite unexpected. INTERVIEW WITH Mil. LOCKWOOD. A Hekald reporter called upon Mr. Legraad 'Lockwood, the sou ol the foamier ol the house and the principal purtuer, shortly after the failure had beeu announced, aud had au interview with hiai. Jlr. Lockwood was very willing to state the causes which led to the disaster, und said he had nothing to conceal. "There was a report around the street to-day, Mr. Lockwood," said tke reporter, "which gained great credence, and which gave It to be under stood that your unfortunate suecuiatieus during the past few days led to the suspension." "I know what you mean," rejoined Mr. Lock wood. "I have heard the report and read it in one of the evening papers, that I was 'long' of stocks aud when the decline came 1 sold out and went 'short' of them, thus losing doubly by the sub sequent rise. This I can state is totally un true. The recent panto ami operations in stocks have had nothing to do with my suspen sion. The two causes which have led to the failure on our part to meet our engagements have been the stringency in the money market dnrlng the past few months and the excessive stringency for rhree weeks past; and aguln, our old engage ments on the lormer failure alter Black Friday. We have been clogged In our movements by these causes, and fcave had to pay out money constantly on these old engagemeuts. I need not explain to you how hard money has been to get. As lor my self I found it perlectly impossible to get It inside of the rates which I thought possible to pay. It was no use my continuing to pay one-half per cent a day, at the rate of lHO per cent per annum, for money. I have done It until I found It was ouly MAKINfi MATTERS WORSE for me. I have values winch are worth money, but on which it was Impossible to raise cash." "1 understand you to say, then, mat you needed money all the time to pay off old calls of indebted ness, and that you could not get this monev?" "No, we could not. In the settlement oi' tho old accounts was all the trouble, not In the new. These were ail rlgut and very prosperous. If the new house had been lert to Itself without the Incu bus of the old debts upon it we mignt have ao ooanted ourselves most prosperous aud suc cessful." "Did the fall Hi stocks and subsequent rise not hurt you at all ?" "No, not to a great extent. Only to a trivial de gree and mainly with our customers who have had margins wltn us. With these the constant paying out of interest for money has been most severe." "What hope have you of resuming t" "We have not the slightest idea how matters will turn ont. You see we must first see our creditors and find what arrangement they are wi U?g to eome to." "Have you many depositors f" "Oh yes, a goodly number." "Do you know how much you had on deposit f* "I really cannot tell, not even approximately. Their loss will not be severe, for we hope to be able to settle up on a good basis." "Have you seen any of your creditors-*" "ies, a good many, and they have treated us with the greatest kindness and consideration. They have shown us. Indeed, great sympathy. Hut what arrangement we shall r>e ante to make with them 1 cannot as yet tell. Hut please bear in mind the one fact that It is not our speculations which have caused our failure." i A>>OTHEH INTERVIEW WITH Hfl. J. I.. BROWNELL. The reporter called upon Mr. J. L. Brownell dur ing the afternoon to hear any. further news he might nave to tell as to his failure. Mr. Brownell was in much better humor than the nay before, and was sinwug very pleasantly when tho reporter en tered. ??Von seem to have Improved prospects to-day?" said the reporter. "oh, yes; I think matters look very favorable for me. i had thought, for one thing, yesterday, that my failure was worse than it is. In the hurry of the moment I had estimated my entire losses at about |ioo, itoo, but ou looking more closely into matters I don't think they will be more than from $iu),ooo to |7ft,ooo. I find, on examination, that many of my customers' margins had t>een cut down oy continued high Interest being paid from them? much more than I had expected, and this has, of course, reduced my Indebtedness a great deal." "I presume yon can very easily make this sum good?" '?I have no doubt of It. I have property worth many times that amount, which Is at. the disposal ofmy creditor*. There Is not a dollar of what I own ia my wife's name, and tboy are welcome to all of it until they pay themselves, and did my wife own anything she would also add it to tne pile linui Uic UQUlWftf WV vmd. um J gWiNlUCiDtft. they will be very bard on me. One of oar cus tomers even OKFHRRD TO LRND MR MONEY to-day. I think 1 have enough ttrst mortgages to pay my liabilitieH-, all I want is to get a meeting of hit creditors, anil to talk to them and get their assurance that if 1 open my doors again they won't rush in and swamp me, and cause me to close up agtiin. Home people laughed when (hey read in the Hrrald that I said my liabilities in the street were not more tnan $3,000. But when I told you that 1 believed it. I know now that my liabilities in the street will not be as much as $6,000, and these will lie settled as soon as 1 can do it. I don't think any of them would annoy me it 1 wanted to open agnln." ")ou intend, then, to resnmef" "If the creditors do as I expect they will I shall resume inside of a week. Many of them have not arrived yet, and 1 expect a good many to be hero to-morrow. They have not had time to reach here yet. The report that I own land near Engiewood is correct. I have no Interest iu the I'allsade house, lint my lands are near it. Much sympathy has been expressed (or me. and I thank the 1Irkai.ii, as well as my brother brokers, for the way in which they have treated me in this trial. THE GEB1DAN REPl'BLICANS. The German Republican Central Com mittee and the New Charter? A Mil lennium of Reform Approaching. The German Republican Central Committee, William Gellm&nn presiding, held a meeting at :t40 Bowery last night, when the Executive Committee, through Gnstave Beyerle, submitted a report, from which It appeared that remonstratlons were made, which were addressed to Aldermen Kehr and Koch in reference to the Mayor's nominations for a Board or Excise Commissioners, on account of his omission to nominate at least one German citizen a member or the Board. The committee has also recommended to Governor Dix Consul Frederick Kuhue, a candidate lor a Commissioner or Emigration. The report, in substance as above, was adopted, including a resolution hailing with satisfaetion the final adoption or the new charter for this city, as a means of uprootiug and removing the last remnants oi the old rammany King rrom the adminlst ration of our municipal affairs, and expressing tlie hope that under the new riginw to bo introduced under the new charter the long-desired rertrins in the ad ministration of local affairs will lie Anally accom ilished. A resolution was also passed, congratu atlng the German republicans of this city that tli".v have had their share in bringing about this reformed state of affairs bv a vote cast in the in terest of reiorui at the last election to the number of 10,000.
