VOICES PltOI THE TOMBS, ! Interviews with James C. King and John Scanned. ling Dying with the Spectre of the Gallows Before Him? A Heartrending Spectacle. WHAT JOHN SCANNELLSAYS. He Feels Innocent as a Babe and Terj Happy -He Would Rather Hang Than Go to Prison. A Herald reporter saw James 0. King yester day. He was in his cell In the Tombs. where he will probably remain until he dies of consumption or is hanged. What a sad fate ! Young, happy, prosperous, beloved by his children, devoted to his ?wife, with the prospect ol a long life before him, he is suddenly thrown into prison. He is shut out from the pure air of heaven, separated from :hose lie loves, and a terrlDle spectre rises up before blm?tha gallows I No nappy evenings by the fire side, no fond associations with his children, no honorable pursuits that would make him respected among tils fellow men. but death? -ignominious, shameful, disgraceful death. That Is not all. He pines In lila cell? thoughts of his disgrace come over htm. He becomes sick ; he has the consump tion and day by day his vigorous frame is wasted ? away by the fever that consumes him. And no one near. No kind hand to smooth his pillow, no familiar voice to speak to him, no loving arm to STEAL ABOUND niB NECB. Alone, forsaken, forgotten, with but one hope which cannot fail? death. It Is terrible to thin* of dying on the gallows; but die be must, and death will end his sufferings. The coll In which King Is confined Is cheerfhlly fitted up. A handsome carpet, a table covered with flowers, a number of boolcs and magazines, pictures on the wall, all these give it a comfortable appearance. The light that steals through the chink In the wall and slants on the bed is bright, and were it not for the heavy Iron bars you would fancy yourself in some pleasant little room occu pied by some modest young Dachelor. King lay on his bed. His face was worn with sickness. It was white, his lips were pale and teverlsh, his sunken eyes had a wan look that was infinitely sad. He looked thin, weary, heavy at heart. As he spoke his lips shook and his breast heaved, and every now and then he sighed. Never will the reporter forget those sighs of anguish, that must have struck deep at the heart of the most indifferent listener. King was so elck that he was scarcely able to Bpeuk. His utterance was A FEVERISH, FAINT BREATHING, and' it was with the greatest difficulty that the re porter oould catch the sounds. As the reporter uddrcssed him King raised himself slightly In bed. "How are you to-day f" the reporter Inquired. "Very well, thank you," King said, feebly, and casting a long wistful look at the reporter. What a strange glance I It had an Imploring, grateful expression, as though he was thankful for the Slightest mark of kindness. "Tills is a cheerless place to be in," the reporter observed. King looked at him with his wan eyes. "Yes, in deed/' he said with a sigh, which he in vain en deavored to suppress, and he added, with a forced #mile, "1 am, indeed, a warrior. Am I not f" The last auery was addressed to Warden John eon. who stood inside the cell administering kindly, as is his wont, to the needs of the prisoner. Mr. Johnson acquiesced, and asked, "Are you able to drink your beef tea r" ? ? King'* head sank wearily on the pillow. ''Yes,' he said faintly, "I can drink a little." And he 61 "The fair sex have not yet forsaken you," the re porter observed, pointing TO THE FLOWERS ON THE LITTLE TAB1.E. "Yes." King replied, with the same lorced smile, ?'they don't forsake iue." Alter a pause and in a fitter tone, "They have done enough for me? Cn?TT?Hse are luxurious quarters," the reporter BB"yes,l'"SKing answered, trying to look a little more cheeriul; "I lived three weeks at the Grand Hotel iu Paris, and this is almost like it. ??The doctors say you are getting along a little fcetter?" the reporter asked. He answered in the same low, weary tone, ??About the same as yesterday." He raised his head and wrung his nands, "Oh, if I could only get up from this (pointing at the bed) how happy I ?would be!" Reporter? You will probably recover? Kino (sadly shaking his head)? Ob, If one has only health' It's terrible to be sick. What a visitation this is (with a resigned air) t But, per haps, it is all for the best, it might be worse. reporter? You are right. . ... Kino (slowly, wearily)? Perhaps one of my chil dren might die? it might be worse. Providence is Inscrutable. , _ ,, . reporter? You have not lost all hope? Kino? No, ne. I dun't think much about my case (casting his eyes upwards) , I am in the hands of the almighty. The last words seemed to relieve him a little ; his articulation became more distinct. Reporter? You have good lawyers; they will do tfor you &ll they can. Kino (turning to a colored boy In the cell)? E lease to open the window. I want to breathe the esh air again (to the reporter) . I have good law yers and f have God Almighty, and I have a gopd ileal or confidence in both. _ He becamc weak and could speak no more. I ?hall Ue glad to see you again," he said, courteous ly? his manner is that of a thoroughbred gentle man ? as the reporter parted from him. The d?or dosed and King was again alone with his misery. AN INTERVIEW WITH JOHN SCANNBLL. t The reporter turned to Seannel'B celL John Scanned was in his shirt sleeves and just about to ?have himseli. He greeted the reporter cordlailv. "I have been very well, thank you," ne said, In ?ils heartiest voice and with his jolllest laugh; "l Siave read so much about prisons and prison life. *?,ut I'm sure I can't see anything here that would atTect a man's health. I have gained twenty Dounds since I have come here. See how fleshy I ?m netting to be." And he beat his chest. reports*?

The most horrible thing in regard to hanging I ever read was the description of the Jew's last night npon earth in "Oliver Twist.'' Of course, guilty men must have such horrible thoughts; butl have none, and never shall have any, because l HAVE A OL*AR CONSCIENCE.

Tlir Victory Nearly Won by tl\e Com* punv-Thi' Striker* Beeomiug Umpoud dui-Soine of Tlwiu Petitioning 1'? li*> Taken Back? Will the Company He employ Them 1 The inevitable result of the strike of the gas men, which was presaged from the beginning, is about to be realized in the victory of the New York Gas Company over their former employes. This became apparent yesterday, when Captain 1 Tynan, of the Eighteenth precinct, received from a delegation of the strikers a petition, to which was affixed a long airing of names? aev enty-eight in all? asking the officers of the company to re-engage them, at the same rates of pay and with the same time as has been all along conoeded by the other companies to their laborers. Captain Tynan States that from his observations while coming in contact with the strikers he thinks that the ma jority of them are very anxious to get back Into their old employment without insisting any further upon the exactions which they have all along claimed. In conversations whloh a Herald reporter had with certain of the strikers he learned that some of them were almost in total ignorance of the pe tition naid to have been signed and sent in due form to the company through Captain Tynan. They seemed, however, to be in A VERY DBPRES8KD STATE OK MIND and did not know what their future course would oe. It was evident that they were almost, if not quite, on the verge of giving up the battle, and probably would gladly do so If they were assured of being again given employment and their old wages. But they seem now to be impressed with the idea that their restoration to their former positions is no louger optional with themselves, since the new workmen have been Introduced and have proved themselves capable of soon meeting the needs of the public as well as the old. A VISIT TO TIIE GASWORKS was made yesterday, and it was found that very comfortable quarters are provided for the work men when resting irom their toil, and that the ac commodations lor supplying them with food are quite civilized and quite adequate to their wants. The sleeping apartments are well ventilated. Through tlie windows, when they are opened, the fresh air lrom the river blows freely, and they are kept clean and healthy. None o/ the bunks are situated over the boilers. The President of tue New York Gas Company said yesterday that tlie new laborers were becom ing very efficient, some ot them were discharged irom tlie works of the other companies, as is usually the case every year upon the recurrence ol the longer days ot Spring and summer, and, therefore, were already well skilled in their work. He said that the petition above referred to had been received at the office. When asked what would be the action ol the company regarding it, whether they would take back the old men or not, he answered that It was very improbable, as there were now NO VACANCIES IN THE WORKS which required to be tilled, aiul It would be unjust to the new workmen to discharge them to make I room for the strikers. He expressed the utmost confidence in tneir power to supply their customers with a lull quota or gas without any further chauge iu their arrangements. This probable retention of the new workmen produces a new phase of the difficulty, which may possibly culminate in attempts at violence, since the continual and forced idleness of the strikers may make tliem desperate In their measures. The question which will now be most bitterly presented to them to answer is, "How are we to support our wives and children without work?" The conviction now is gaining ground among all interested parties, except a few of the most stub born of the strikers, that the movement was begun without sufficient forethought and without weigh ing the trials whloh it would throw upon its par ticipants. It may prove, therefore, a very whole some lesson to the class ef men who are engaged in it. THE LABOB ftUESTIOH. Renewed Agitation for the Eight Hoar Reform? Meeting of ? General Tradei Delegation Last Night. A meeting of a General Committee, composed of some fifty delegates, representing sixteen or sev enteen different trades' unions, was held at the Germanla Assembly Rooms last night, for the pur pose of discussing certain arrangements for a con ference with the Mayor, the Comptroller and other heads of the municipal government In regard to the enforcement of a certain State law, known as the Eight Honr law. Although the chances of a suc cessful renewal of a general eight hour strike are few this Spring efforts will not t>e lacking on the part of the trades' unions, influencd, as they are by the "internationals," to press their fa vorite scheme of enforcing the eight hour labor system, and they look upon the municipal govern ment as best suited to solve the problem by test ing the matter. The committee, wnlch was pre sided over by James Best, of the stonemasons' Union, was composed of delegations repre senting the following trades and organiza tions The masons, United Bricklayers, United Order of American Carpenters; stone masons, the paper bangers, stone cutters, the painters, the stair bnlldere, marble polishers, the Worklngmen's Union, the Building Trades' Council. Measures were also dlBCtused te compel the Har lam Railroad Company te comply with the provi sions of the above-mentioned State law, the strict enlorcement of which, it is expected, will involve a lasting salvatien and emancipation ?t the work ing classes. Several sub-committees were formed, and received directions to take further action In the matter. A VERY BAD CASE. Theodore Johnson, of 108 Orchard street, and Thomas Costamagna, of 152 Leonard street, were taken before Justice Ledwtth, at the Jefferson Mar ket Police Court, yesterday, charged with stealing two volumes of engravings entitled "Wllkle's Gal lery." valued at $60, Irom the bookstore of Apple ton A Co., on Broadway. Costamagna offered the Books for sale at the publishing house or 0. W. Carlton, in Union square, very much below their value. This circumstance aroused the suspicion of the clerk, and Costamagna was detained while a messenger went down to Appleton's and ascertained that the books had been stolen. Johnson, who was waiting outside the store while Costamagna offered the nooks for sale, was also taken into cus tody. Johnson, when asked the usual question as to his guilt or innocenee, answered, "I have noth ing to say." Costamagna declared emphatically that he was not guilty. The prisoners describe themselves as "journalists." Mr. Johnson is a German by birth, but has been for manv years a resident of this country. He was one time editor of the Cincinnati Commercial, and has for some years back been employed as a magazine wrner and translator. Recently Johnson has been writing some articles Tor Ap pleton's Journal, and it Is supposed that while passing through the store, after receiving a check In payment for hlB work, he purloined the books. Costamagna, wha is said to be an ac complished, but from his habits unfortunate liter ary man, Is believed by Mr. Appleton to be Inno cent of any knowledge that the books were stolen when he offered them lor sale. Both prisoners were committed for trial by Justice Ledwllh In de fault of $1,000 bail each. HEW CATHOLIC PAST0B& Vicar General datnn'a Successor at St. Peter's. The Rev. Michacl J. O'Farrell, pastor at Rondout, has been appointed successor to the Very Rev. William Quinn In the administration of St. Peter's, Barclay street. The very Rev.

At the annual meeting of the Vestry of All Saints' church, held on Easter Eve, a series of resolutions were passed, thanking the Rev. Dr. Dlz and the corporation of Trinity church for the liberal aid extended to them during the passed rear. Were it not for the munificence of the "mother church" the parish of All Halnts would be in a very poor condition; the church edifice was gradually crum bling away, but, now, thanks to old Trinity, it Is looming up again, having been newly painted and furnished. Not only has Trinity repaired the church, but she has also built a rectory on one of the lots adjoining, and promises further aasiat retur? for her liberality, all she asks ia JhiL H V the Gospel preached unto them. ' In deference to her wishes all the pew doors have been taken off, and every man ia made equal before the Lord. VkhtRTMAiT TOE EIII8 INVESTIGATION.

The Erie Investigating Oommitee met yesterday morning at the Fifth Avenue Hotel, a'l the mem bers being present. Tbe evidence, an will be seen from the report, wan or au interesting nature and threw further light upon tbe dark chapters Of the Erie management. THOMAS O. SHEARMAN, of Field * Shearman, waa first sworn? Was as sociate counsel with David D. Field in the Erie directory previous to March, 1873: bad a consulta tion with John H, Corner in the council room, Erie offloea, January, 1872; be came in and stated that Mr. Gould had a claim against the estate of Mr. Flak ; he asked witness whether he was cog nizant of a written contract between them; wit ness told Comer that there was such a contract and that it was Just, inasmuoh as the money had been paid by Gould; witness had no personal knowledge that the money bad been paid to Gen eral Barlow only from secondary facts and circum stances ; was persuaded that the money had been paid General Barlow, but would prefer not to state the grounds. The oommlttee decided to PRESS mi QUESTION, but Mr. Shearman demurred at answering the question when put by Mr. Stlckney, inasmuch as that gentleman was so affiliated with General Barlow that it would substantially be replying to an examination by General Barlow In person. The committee 'sustained the right of Mr. Stlck ney to conduct the examination. Mr. Shearman? Information as to the complicity of the Attorney General was derived from Messrs. Gould, Flsk, Belden, Simon Stevens and several parties, clients of witness, whose names have not been mentioned in this matter, and are therefore MOT AT THB COMMAND OP THB COMMITTEE the Information from Gould came up in this way : Just before the coup d'etat, the Attorney General was about to bring a suit against the Gould direc tion, which witness was advised of; Gould had stated that he would be able to fix matters with tbe Attorney General; that he had been paying him tbe money contracted for, $35,000, at regular in tervals ; the suit was not brought at the time of the coup d'etat; Mr, Gould desired the Attorney General to Institute a suit against the new direc tion to compel an accounting; this was not pressed by advice of witness, but the Attorney General's consent to bring It was given; witness had ex pressed great contempt both lor a suit brought by tho Attorney General and for that official himself; ANOTIIKH STATEMENT, which tended to confirm Mr. Gould's, was made by Mr. Simon Stevens ; at least Mr. D. D. Field had stated it to witness in presence of Mr. Stevens, who assented to the trutb of it; It was, in effect, that General Barlow had demanded $100,000 of Gen eral Sickles as compensation for his services in bringing about the overthrow and In procuring the repeal of the Classification act; he had lobbied very strenuously for certain measures pending at Albany; witness declined to give the conversation with Mr. Belden without the consent of that gen tleman. Mr. Stickney suggested that it was a well estab lished rule that there was no privilege of lawyer and client in legislative investigations. The wit ness having volunteered to recount the features of the contract the question was not then pressed. Mr. Shearman? One day in November or Decem ber, 1871, Mr. Belden came into the connrll room, Erie Building, and stated that Mr. Flsk wanted to make a contract which wonld have to be very care fully drawn; it was that Flsk and Gould were to find some business for Belden and Hayes wortn $35,000 a year, and that until such business was found the first -named were to pay the latter $3,000 monthly in advance ; the contract was drawn, and Mr. Belden ha'd said that it was satisfactory to him, but that he would have to show it to a third party, who must be satisfied as to its binding force; witness had no kuowledge then that that per son was the unknown tnird party; Mr. Gould knew nothing of that part of the contract, and only Mr. Fisk had the management of it; Gould and Flsk both stated afterwards that this contract was really for trie benefit of General Barlow; Stevens afterwards stated that be knew of money coming to General Barlow through Wheeler H. Peckham, whom the General employed; Stevens had sala precisely that, while foreman of tbe Uraod Jury, a person had offered to tarnish evi dence that Peckham had divided the $10,000 fee for the Tweed prosecution with General Barlow; he (Stevens) had gone to look Into the evidence, but when it became known that the Grand Jury were going to inquire into the matter they had been called into court and discharged. Stevens also stated that Barlow knew what dis Sosltlon had been made ot the $1,600 paid to peaker Smith; Smith nsed that money to have himself elected Speaker : tbe fight at that time was very warm: witness had also been Informed by Peter H. Watson that a friend of General Barlow had been to Watson to suggest that in view of Barlow's great services it wonld be proper to give him (Barlow) a general retainer or $10,000 ; none of the corrupt practices of the old directors bad ever been stated to witness before their consummation, hence be had never opposed them ; when Gould had asked witness HOT TO STIR BARLOW CT>, as be was friendly, witness had declined to be boand in such a way, and bad continued attacking him on the ground of Improper conduct In several respects ; these cases bad only come to tbe knowl edge of witness by Information. witness had opposed tbe passage of tbe "Attor ney General's bill Barlow was In favor of the Sasaage of that bill? In public; woald not have rawn any inference of improper conduct from his action before the Legislature, unless it might be deduced from his determination not to bring suit until tbe passage of tbe Attorney General's bill? a measure which had no chance of passing, and which thus became an easy way or escaping bring ing a suit. To Mr. Lincoln? There was no consideration for the contract between Fink and Belden & Hayes ; the only services rendered by them of wnlch wit ness was cognizant was Belden going to Albany to seethe Attorney General and a similar visit in this cttv ; has no personal knowledge that any part of the money paid under the contract had (tone to the Attorney General; nad been so informed by clients, but cannot say that thev claimed to have personal knowledge of it having so been paid; their statements had !>een sufficiently strong to convince witness that such was : the fact; wltnesB understood that Messrs. I BlschofTshelm A Goldschmldt held 66.000 shares of Erie stock at the time of the coup W(tat; witness professed quite Intimate information as to the finances of the cempany, owing to being called upon to defend suits brought by the Internal Hevwnue Department; very complete examina tions of the beoks were made, and ne money was ever collected as tax on unpaid dividends If earned ; If there was such a surplus as has been published, they must have found some source of profit tnat has not yet appeared in their accounts; witness, on the contrary, had received inlormatlon that a less business was done in 1872 than in 1871, while thu road Is not in as good a condition now. W. W. GOODRICH said be wished to contradict a statement made by General Sharpe, that be had received |i,ooo while a member of the Assembly ; no sum was received by him while a member; was In Albany several times as counael and adviser to gentlemen i who were engineering hills; know uf no money being used in Albany in connection with any bills; the fi.ooo received did not come from the Erie Railway; received It from Mr. .swan, agent of tbe English stockholders; I bad my suspicions of money being used at Albany, but have no personal knowledge that such was the case. Judge Joseph Dow imp was next sworn, and tes tified as follews:? I have no knowledge of any money being paid for the overthrow of the Gould j administration; it has been stated that Mr. Kelso 1 and myself received large sums of money; this, 1 am happy to have tbe opportunity to state, is en I tlrely raise ; no affers were ever made to me ; there were all sorts of rumors that Kelso was offered money and that I received money; as far as I am concerned the rnmor was entirely false. Superintendent Kelso said he bad no knowledge or any sums of monev b6lng expended for the over throw of tbe Gould administration ; it has been said that Tabulouft sums were paid to hint; this is entirely raise ; be simply did his dnty in preserving the peace between tbe parties. William H. Uutter, General Freight Agent, of the New Tork Central, testified Was Assistant Gen eral Freight Agent of the Erie Railroad in 1872; knew or the Fro Rata Freight bill which was before tbe Legislature; I was in Cleveland at the time, and received a despatch from Mr. Arcber, desiring me to come to Albany at once; I did so. and arrived late at nlgLt, and round Mr. Archer In Mr. Vandcrbilt's room, at the lielavan House; I was asked by Mr. Depew, who was pres ent, what I thought or tbe bill, and I said It would take the through carrying rrelght business out of the hands or the New York railroads; I afterwards appeared before a committee or the Assembly and testified to that effect; there were qatte a num ber of gentlemen In Mr. Vanderblit's room, with whom I waa not aeqnalnted ; I think Senators Manning and Ohatfield were preaent ; I don't recol lect Mr. Dutcher aa being present; I don't remem ber what waa aald by otier gentlemen about de feattng the Mil; 1 heart nothing of money being | uaed la connection wit* (be Mil at Albany; 1 did not see Mr. Van Veohten at the time ; uiy connec | tlon with the Erie Railroad ceased In J une, 1872; I have reason to believe there was an increase of business and an increase or earnings from March to June, 1872; the Pro Rata hill related to local freight, but it would have affected the through freight business also: I have spoken to Mr, Vauder tult, in relation t? an article which appeared in the Tribune \ the article Htated I had used illegiti mate means to prevent the passage of the Pro Rata Freight bill, and ttiat I was rewarded for my ser vices with a 110,000 place on the Piew York Central railroad; 1 wan naturally indignant at this state ment.. and so expressed myself to Mr. Vauderbilt. 0. 1*. Morosini testified that ho was Auditor of the Erie Railroad from the 18th of February, 1870, until the latter part of 1872 ; kept a book contain ing a statement of the legal expenses of the Erie Kailroad; this was not a regular account book ot the company; 1 kept it for my own use; I made no special list of any other expen.^ea except the legal ones; I kept this account because I was so frequently asked lor vouohers by Mr. Gould, Mr. Flak and others; there were large legal pay ments charged to construction account; I resigned my Dositlon, and was dismissed the day after; the new'management treated ine so shabbily that I re signed: I did not care a d? a lor their dismissal. To Mr. Wright? I never heard Mr. Gould say what the payments to Mr. Tweed were; I saw Mr. Tweed but once In my life; I don't recollect having ever seen Mr. Barber; no one directed me to make entries into my legal account book; I leit the book behind me after 1 resigned ; I tore the leaves out or the book in order to

Prevent a man rrom getting hold ol It; hid the leaves ana put tbem back again when 1 was leaving the company; Mr. Fenessy was the man who was trying to get the book; he was looking after my position with a view or getting it for himself; 1 gave the vouchers to General Dlx, on the 10th of April, 1872, and re ceived his receipt tor them; the book was too large to go into my drawer, and I tore np the leaves. To Mr. Babcock? The business of the road de creased arter Mr. Gould left up to the time I re signed ; the expenses of the company were very heavy, and 1 think it was Impossible to declare the dividend out of the earnings. Mr. Vaiulerbllt bad been subpoenaed as a witness, but as he had not appeared at the conclusion of the last witness's testimony, the committee adjourned. QUARANTINE INVESTIGATED. Overhauling Carnochan'i and Swin burne's Administrations? Some Ugly Revelations?Swinburne's Real Estate and Other Speculations at the Expense of the State? Vanderpoel Compli mented. Mr. Adams, of the Finance Committee of the State Senate, yesterday took testimony, at 00 and 52 Pine street, relative to Quarantine affairs, during which some ugly revelations relative to ex-Health Officer Swinburne were elicited.

Brett, shin owner, testified that as at pres ent conducted the quarantine officers of the port are satisfactory to ship owners; the law, as it now stands, will admit oi all the old rascalities, but, honestly administered, we have no cause to com ?lain ; these rascalities were commenced under Dr. homas, Increased under Swinburne, the screws tightened under Carnochan, and a vast amount of business had beeu driven awav from the port ; he had known of cases where lighters were placed be tween the vessel and the wharf and full lighterage charged, although not a particle of the cargo touched the lighter ; this was in 1809 or 1870.
