THE COURTS. THE NIXON-PHYFER TRAGEDY. Effort to Save Nixon From the Gallows?Ap plication for a Slay of Proceedings? Grounds of the Application and Points Raised in Opposition. THE FOLEY-PALMER CONTROVERSY, The Injunction Against Foley Sustained Probable End of the Legal Wran gle Over the Deputy Oliamberlainship. BUSINESS IN THE OTHER COURTS. Id the United States Circuit Oonrt yesterday, in the matter of the application of N. W. Butler to Intervene as a plaintiff in the suit of Lucy Fink, executrix of James Ftsk, Jr., deceased, against the Union Pacific Railroad Company and the Credit Mobilier of America, Judge Blatohford granted an order allowing the application. Yesterday, In the United States Circuit Court, a kill of exceptions, extending to over 1,100 pages, was Died by the plaintiff in the ease of Bowen vs. Chase, which was tried some months since before Judge Shlpman, when there was a verdict for the defendant. THE CASE OF NIXON. Application to Judge Barrett, of the Su preme Court, for a Stay of Proceeding*? Ground* upon Which the Application la Made?The Argument Agaiuat It?-De cision Reserved. Michael Nixon, the unfortunate man now under sentence of death in Uie City Prison for the murder of Charles Phyler in Chatham square, 11 he has no other friend, has one in Mr. William F. Howe, bis counsel. Unremittingly, sincc the day of the sentence, Mr. Howe has labored in his bahaif in preparing a bill of exceptions, with the view of ap plying for a stay of proceedings, ibis application was made yesterday before Judge Barrett, in the Bnpreme Court, Chambers. GROUNDS OP TOE APPLICATION. Mr. Howe made a lengthy and forcible argument. His first point was that the record showed that the Jury who were summoned and retained on the panel to try the caso were not the jury who ren dered the verdict. His next point wae that the Judge erred in admitting the statements, declara tions and acts respecting the finding of the pistol. He next referred to the relusal of the Judge to charge a proposition affecting the question of doubts to which the prisoner was, as he claimed, entitled He Insisted thai the humanity of the law gives to the prisoner the benefit 01 any doubt, and that was not only refused to him, but the jury might well, lrom the reiusal and the charge, have understood that doubts upon specified questions, no matter how important to the final point, were Immaterial and should be disregarded. It was clearly calculated to mislead the jury. There could be no doubt upon the whole case, unless there was a doubt upon a specific point, und to refuse to tell the jury that doubt upou a specific point was to ?nure to the prisoner's benefit, but that doubt upon the whole would so enure, was to present the matter lu a Unlit well calculated to mislead them and to deprive the prisoner 01 the benefit of the doubt. Each lact necessary to the conclusion ?ought to be established must be proved by com petent evidence beyoud a reasonable doubt. If the gnilt 01 the prisoner is to be established by a cualn of circuinstunces, and the jurors have a reasonable doubt in regard to any ?ne or them, that one ought not t# Dave any Influence in making up their ver dict. If the jury hud doubts as to whether it was mnrder or manslaughter, he insisted that he was entitled to the charge that it should be man slaughter. And that the Judge took away; lor the Judge by his charge restricted the doubt to that which would entitle him to au acquittal, depriving Dim entirely of the benefit of that which would re duce the crime to manslaughter. There was also, he urged, fatal error lu that portion of the Judge's charge in which the latter stated that the design of killing might be lormed on the instant ofkilhug. He insisted mat tnere must oe premeditation?that Is, some time beiore the act, under the law In this Slate. The moment before the act Is sufficient time for premeditation, but not when the act and intent arc simultaneous. The intent must precede the deed, although the deed follow Immediately afterwards. Alter insisting that the law of 1865 gave to the prisoner the right to appeal to Uie Supreme Court, and lrom the Supreme Court to the Court of Appeals, he urged, in conclusion, that upon the points submitted and the questions raised, especially considering that Judges Barrett, Pratt and Davis granted a stay of proceedings in tbe cases of the wealthy prisoners Stokes and Fos ter, and in view of the reasons given by those learned Judges 111 those eases, the same right, the same privilege, should be accorded to poor, poverty Stricken Nixon. TDK OI'POSITION TO THE APPLICATION. Assistant District Attorney Lyon, in reply, said that ho had supposed this application was entirely er parte, and he had not, tnereiore, made prepara tion. lie suggested that this application should Dave been first made to the Court ot oyer and Terminer and to Judge Brady, who tried the case, and tliat his reasons lor refusing should have been given In writing. Mr. Howe said that such an application bad been made to Judge Brady in the presence of the Dis trict Attorney, and he had desired that the appli cation be made to another Judge. Judge Barrett said there was no requirement that the Judge give Ids reasons in writing. Mr. Lyon argued that the objection to the panel of Jurors could only be raised by special pleas; that there was no doubt raised by the testimony ex cept by the witnesses who were ut terly discredited by their own testimony and entirely disbelieved by the jurv; tnat the prisoner's own testimony cured any defect as to the proof of tbe pistol being his; that the charge ot the Judge as to the design was In exact conformity with the rule of the Court of Appeals; and, if not, no prejudice arose, since the definition of the elements of murder was clearly given elsewhere in the charge, and that the same thing occurred in relatiou to the oilier exception to tbe charge. Judge Barrett intimated that he regarded Mr. Howe's request as to reasonable doubts ad l?eing too broad, but reserved his decision on all the points. He added that he did not consider the matter one of judicial discretion, but to be deter mined solely by the law. If he decided that there were good legal grounds for the application he ?kould grant it, but not otherwise. THE DEPUTY CHAMBEBLAXNSHIP. Vint Wind Up of the Polf y-Palmer Con troTtny?Palmer Victorious and Foley Left Out in the Cold* Since the passage of the new cn&rter very slight Interest attaches to the controversy between City Chamberlain Palmer and John Poiey growing out ?1 the claim of the latter to the position of Deputy Chamberlain by virtue of his appointment to this position by the Comptroller. When the fight be gan the legal coanter blows were fast and furious, and the public looked on with no little interest atid was worked up to quite a pitch of anxiety as to tbe resuit. It looked first as though Foley was going to win; but when Judge Barbour, holding Special Term of the Superior Court, granted an injunction interdicting him from assuming the tunctions of the ottlco to which he claimed to have been appointed, or in any way meddling with the ailairs of the Deputy Chamber lain, the tide oi sentiment changed and bets were on Palmer. Hut Foiey, who is a flghtist?legal Bgbtist we mean, oi course?as well as reformer, carried tne case to the Superior Court, General Term, and there sought to have the injunction set ?aide. DECISION OP TTIB CASK. "Oic Judges, consisting of Judges Monell, Curtis and Freedman, listened very patiently to the pro longed arguments of counsel, pro and am, and then as patiently pondered over their decision, having token two months' time In which to give it. Tne decision was announced yesterday, lodge Monell giving the opinion ot the Court. After announcing no adjudication upon the question of title to the office, he holds that, as Walter B. Palmer, the Deputy Chamberlain, is In possesslou, doing the duties oi the otllce, he is in there <le fat'-to under color or title, and must bo considered Of lure Depnty Chamberlain until Mr. Foley estab Itabes his right to the otllce by action or quo war ranto through the state Attorney Uencral, and that ap to that time the Chamberlain has a right to re rrd him as a stranger and to eject him by forco he intrudes npon the office, or. if he chooses to take a more peace mi way, to apply to the Conrtof Eqnity toexercise its old chancery juris diction of restraining Intrusion. Judge Curtis gave a dissenting opinion. He holds that the Comptrol ler has the power to appoint the Deputy Chamberlain, hut that Mr. Foley not having obtained nosacusion of the office, moat establish his right m an action of quo warranto, before be can onst the present incambent, who in now de facto Ueputv Chamberlain; but an it does not appear that Mr. Foley intends force or violence, an injunction should not issue on the mere simpleton of the n.oumbent that be may be ousted. The KFPRCr OK THE DECISION is sustaining the action of Judge Harbonr and con tinuing his injunction. The probability is that owing to the complications that have since arisen in relation to the City Chamberlain's oftlce, through the passage of the new charter, to which reference has already been made, the matter will end where It is, and nothing rurther come of it, except the pocketing of nood round fees by the opposing counsel. BUSINESS IN THE OTHER CJOUETS. UNITED STATES CIRCUIT COURT. The New York Central Railroad Scrip Dividend Tax. Before Judge Woodruff. Jndge Woodruff sat In the United States Circuit Court yesterday to hear a motion on the part of the New York Central Railroad Company why an in junction should not be issued by the Court restrain ing Collector Bailey, of Albany, from collecting the scrip dividend tax claimed by the government to be due by the railroad company. It appears that the Collector has seized certain property, engines, Ac., belonging to the railroad company, lor non payment oi the tax, and has advertised this prop erty for sale on Monday next. Hence the motion of yesterday to restrain the sale. Counsel tor the Mew York Central addressed the Court in support of the motion and urged the non liability of the company to the payment of the tax. Solicitor General Phillips and District Attorney Crawley resisted the motion, urging that they be lieved the Court had no jurisdiction in the matter. Judge Woodruff delivered a brief opinion, lie re fused!!!? motion for the injunction on the ground that, as the collector and the New York Central ltailroad Company were citizens of the same State, there was no jurisdiction in the United States Cir cuit Court to interfere in the matter. The motion lor the Injunction was accordingly denied. UNITED STATES COMMISSIONERS' COURT. The Case of Carl Vogt* Before Commissioner White. Yesterday in the United States Court the case of Carl Vogt, a Prussian subject, wl-o Is charged with having murdered the Count de Bols de Blanco to Brussels, Belgium, was called on before Oommis' aioner Kenneth G. White. It will be remembered that about a week ago Judge Blatchford, on a writ of habeas corpns and certiorari In this matter, de cided that, though the alleged crime was com mitted in Belgium, the Prussian government has a right, under the terms of their treaty of extradition with the United States, to demand the removal of Vogt to Prussia to be there tried for the offence imputed to him The result of this decision was to remit the prisoner back to the cuBtody of the Marshal and empower Commissioner White to proceed with the taking of testimony as to the alleged criminality 01 Vogt. When the case was called on yesterday, Mr. Solomons, counsel for the German Empire, asked tor an adjournment for a week, on the ground that the depositions, which had been taken in Belgium, being voluminous, covering as they did some three hun dred or four hundred pages, had not been entirely translated. He might mention taat the evidence was of a circumstantial character and the exam ination would occupy at least a month, unless the Commisaioner concluded to give up to it all his time. Counsel for the prisoner stated that Mr. Klntzing having withdrawn from the case, and he (counsel) having only recently come into It, he was not quite familiar with the details; but if there was any oral testimony to be given, that might be pro ceeded with now. Mr. Solomons replied that he preferred intro ducing the depositions lirst; subsequently he would introduce such oral evidence as he had to offer. He, therefore, asked an adjournment for a week. Counsel for the prisoner observed that he did not object to the adjournment; but he would like Mr. Solomons to send him a copy of the deposi tions. Mr. Solomons said he did not sec liow he could do that, as it would be uttei ly Impossible to have the translation of the depositions made and the translation compared with the original before Thursday or Friday next. Counsel would, how ever, have full opportunity to examine and read the depositions. The examination was accordingly adjourned to Saturday next. SUPERIOR COUjiT?GENERAL TERM. Decisions.

A new and interesting feature in connection with the State Courts is the recent passage of an act by the Legislature enlarging the civil Jurisdiction of the Superior Court and Court of Common Pleas In this city. This act gives to these Courts "hence forth orluiaal jurisdiction, at law and in equity, concurrent and coextensive with tho Snpreme Court, of all civil actions and of all special pro ceedings of a civil nature.'? The effect of this extension of the power of these two Courts will begin to develop ltseir during the present month. It will serve to equalize the business of the three Courts, and must, of course, be productive of ?;reater despatch In disposing of the ituslness be* ore tne Courts. Grounds for grumbling at the proverbial "law's delay" will not exist certainly to the extent they have heretofore, and, taken al together. the change cannot be otherwise than productive of the best results alike to Judges, law yers and litigant*. Front jpreaept indications the Ku tern oroimaet to be ft busy one In all the Courts, hi the Supreme Court, General Term, which meets on Monday Judges Ingraham, Brady and Davis on the bench? a decision is expected in the Stokes case, and it is barely possible that the case of Nixon may be ar gued before them?that is, if the application for a stay of proceeding meets with a favorable re sponse. Judge i!ratiy will continue to preside in the Court of Oyer and Terminer. He shows still an unyielding determination to fight it out on the line he began in January tr It takes all Summer, and make clear most of our criminal calendar. Judge Barrett will hold Circuit, l'art 2, and Judge Pancher, Chambers. in the Superior Court, General Term, Jndges Bar bour, Freeduian and Sedgwick will preside. Judge Curtis will hold Special Term, Judge Van Vorst Trial Term, Part l, and Judge Monell Trial Term, Part 2. In the Court of Common Pleas Judges Robinson and Larremore will preside at General Term. Judge Loew will hold Part 1, Trial Term, and Judge J F. Daly Special Term. COURT OF SPECIAL SESSIONS. The lion id-Marrln Fiasco. Before Judges Shandley, Coulter and Cex. The Court ol Special Sessions yesterday was crowded with a motley assemblage of lawyers, witnesses, spectators, Ac., all drawn there by the report that the case of Jay Gould vs. Joseph J. Mama was to t>e tried. It will be remembered that on last Wednesday Marrln assaulted Gould in Delmomco's, striking him in the race and causing his nose to bleed copiously. Marrln was at the time notified to appear at the Tombs Police Court and give bonds for trial. After considerable business bad been transacted yesterday Mr. olerk Johnson in stentorian tones cried out "Joseph J. Marrln?Jay Gould." Mr. Gould responded, but from Marrln there was no answer. Mr. Fullerton, counsel for Mr. Gould, then stood up and said:?"Vour Honor, 1 appear here for Mr. Gould in the character of a public prosecutor by courtesy and consent of the District Attorney, our witnesses are all here, and we are ready to proceed In the case." Justice Sliandlev reDlled"The defendant Is not here, as I have been Informed, therelore 1 think the case had better be postponed until next Tues day." "Hut, Your Honor, I cannot come here next week. My business engagements are very numer ous and will keep me occupied during the entire week." "Well, then," replied His nonor, "wait here a little while una perhaps Mr. Marrin will put in an appearance." Mr. Fullerton acquiesced, and, alter a short con sultation with Mr. Gould, concluded to allow the case to stand over until next court day. The distinguished party shortly after left the court room. About half-past' twelve, after the Court had ad journed, Mr. Algernon Sydney Sullivan, accompa nied by Mr. Joseph J. Marrin and the latter's brother, appeared In the corridor of the Tombs. Mr. Marrin was very much excited over the fact that the trial had been appointed and that he bad not been present. After this case had been disposed of a very pecu liar case ol assault and battery came up, in which Counsellor Abe Hummel appeared for the defence. A young woman named Christine Nebel accused an old man named Martin Reed with having assaulted her In the street. Justice shandley?What did he do to you T Christine?Imtn gar nichl.fiir ateyen. Justice shandley?interpreter, what does she say r - Interpreter?She says she don't understand Eng. lisn. Justice Shandley?Ask her what this man did to her V Interpreter fiaighing)? She says he met her In the street and turned up his nose at her. Justice Shandley (as If disgusted)?You are dt? cliarged. Go away. Counsellor Hummel, lauirhingly, thanked His Honor, and the prisoner came around and shook his hand warmly. ESSEX MARKET POLICE COURT Horse Stealing and Money Snatching. Thomas Carrigan was arrested yesterday on com. plaint ol Philip Collins, of 53 Pike street, who charges that he stole five horses from lilm on the 30th ultimo. Collins says that Carrigan came to him In com pany with a friend and bargained for the horses in question, agreeing to pay for them $400. Before any money was paid over, however, Carrigan In vited the complainant into a neighboring saloon for the purpose of imbibing something in the way or refreshment. Collins accepted the invita tion, leaving Carrlgau's friend in the yard in charge or the horses. When the two returned rrorn the saloon neither the horses nor Mr. Carrlgau's rriend were anywhere to be found. Collins at once accused Carrigan of being an accessory to the theit, whereupon that Individual assured Mr. Col lins that If he would come up to his place the follow ing day he would pay him lor the animals. Collins went up to Twenty-fourth street the next morn ing, but Carrigan was not there, nor had he been Seen since the previous day. Detectives were at once placed on his track, and yesterday they suc ceeded in arrestimr him, but did not recover the horses. Justice Shandley, before .whom the pris oner was taken, committed him for trial In the Geueral Sessions; but during the afternoon Alder man Mehrbach, one or the witnesses in the Scan nell trial, walked Into Court and (rave bail In the sum or ?1,000 lor his appearance when wanted. This is not the lirst time Mr. Carrigan has been arrested. A lew flays ago be was brought before Justice Scott, at the Essex Market Police Court, charged with steatlint tl20 from ft Brooklyn party to whom he hail sold a horse. When the man put down the money lor the animal Carrigan grabbed It and then refused to give up the horse. On this charge he was held lor trial in the sum of $5oo. JEFFERSON MARKET POLICE COURT.

Gale, a lawyer, of Nos. 100 and 102 Broadway, about six o'clock on the evening of the 1st of May, came up before Justice Ledwith, at Jefferson Market Police Court, yesterday. The truckman. Michael McGutre, testified that Donnelly got on the truck, telling him that he was going to ride up town with him; subsequently, and when near Eleventh street, the prisoner Lawrence Dines also got on the truck and put off a boy who had been placed there to watch the load, and then cut loose one ?f the trunks and it fell to the ground; deponent jumped off to replace it, when Donnelly seized the reins and drove rapidly off; he followed and at tempted to get on the truck, when Don nelly resisted him and in the m?l?e was pushed to the ground. Dines remained on the load and drove off with it. Mr. Gale, who had followed the truck in a coupe, now came np, and, as special Deputy Sheriff, arrested Donnelly, and subsequent ly turned him over to a police officer.

Scattering of the Societies?'The Pro grammes as Announced. It is almost proverbial that "anniversary week" Is rainy, and the present beginning of May gives just color of truth to the proverb. For a few years past there has been a tendency to discontinue the anniversaries as a peculiar foature of May gather

ings, but this tendency seems to have taken an other tnrn this year, and several of the most promi nent religious and benevolent associations of the country which used to meet in New York havo ar ranged to meet In other cities. The Baptist organ izations, for instance, will hold their yearly meet ings In Albany this month; the Congregationallsts, whose annual gatherings In Brooklyn herctolore were such a leature of the anniversaries, will meet elsewhere this year. Anions those that have arranged to hold their annual meetings here and have announced their programme are tlio following organizations:? Sunday, May 4?Evening.?Annnai sermon before the American Female Guardian Society, in the Northwest Reformed church, corner of Fifty-sev enth street and Madison avenue, Rev. Dr. Uanse, pastor.

Close of a Wetk'i (Stagnancy?May Mov ing Blamed for the Inactivity?Hope* for Bettering?The Stw York Industrial Exposition?Public Aid Requested?An Honest Expenditure ot the Money De manded?The Extension of New York Northward? The Political Lava Beds of Westchester. When on Monday last we published a long array of advertisements, setting forth the sales of prop erty to be held daring the week, tho impression prevailed that the market would be, If not bril liant, at least lively and active; but, alas! for hn man expectations, such was not the case. The various larire parccls offered up for disposal were either withdrawn on account of orders received from tho referee or postponed, or, not bringing satisractory prices, bought by the parties offering the same. The tlrst essay in this lino was made on Monday, when the Ave brick houses, owned by "boss" Tweed, commencing corner of liroadway and Twenty-first street, which Messrs. Muller, Wilklns A Co. offered for sale by order of the Court, were withdrawn that ddy and the sale postponed for two weeks. The property of Walter Roche, to be "auc tioned" off, by order of the trustees guarding the' remainlng assets of the Guardian SaviniiH Bank, brought ior the tlrst lew parcels such beggarly amounts that it was thought u pu ce ot lolly to coiw tliiue the sale under the existing bearish aus pices. Tho combination sale of the C'larkson Estate and others likewise proved a chimera, and so on to the end of the chapter. Thus, taken alto gether, the week's business was a fizzle, und a good share ol the blame lor the result may be laid on the unfortunate 1st of May, a period dreaded and berated by ull who are unlortunate enough not to live in their own houses, and are compelled to be left to the tender mi'rey ol fillt-hearted land lords and bullying truckmen, But the agony Is happily over, and while we take a breathing spell we tnank our stars that another year intervenes before another May Day comes around, and hope for a revival In the tralTIc ol landed property. TilK AMERICAN WORLD'S FAIR. The public meetings for the free discussion of im provements affecting real estate In liarlem and its vicinity, which originated at Mncoln Hall, in mth street, in opposition to all selfish plans anil schemes of "hole aud corner" juntas, signalized their latest effort lor their locality on Monday evening last by the adoption of a resolution favoring the construc tion of an industrial exhibition paiace on the grounds now occupied by the National rattle Yard, and bounded by Nlnety-eiirhth and load streets. Third and Fourth avenues. Tho accessibility of this location by horse cars and steam boats and by more rapid conveyance over the matn route for steam railroad transit through the city, along the westerly boundary ol t ie site, together with its contiguity to the Cen tral l'ark, and its otherwise commanding charac teristics in respect to elevation, view, Ac., renders it eminently suitable for the purpose. The ex ample of the Central Park, as was pertinently ob served in the preuinble to the resolution, amply demonstrates the wisdom of liberal public expen ditures lor such objects in the promotion of the trade and general prosperity of the city; and the citizens ana taxpayers assembled at the meetiug were fully justified, in their lurther statement to their representatives at the State capital, that an Industrial Exhibition, ot the magnitude, grandeur and usefulness proposed, Is worthy of Miei- en couragement by means or appropriations to se cure such a desirable consummation. PUBLIC AID I)ES1HKI>. On the next day a committee from the meeting proceeded to Albany and had interviews with all the city members of the Senate, where the Indus trial hxhibltlou Company's bill for public aid to their crystal palace is now pending. The commit tee ascertained that tl'.ere was no serious impedi ment to aid for such a measure /wr ??; indeed, the idea may be set down as directly popular, so much so that the principal promoters of the pending project in the Senate claim that it will pass that body in its present shape, Jusi as it came irom tho Assembly. But, outside or this liifluence there is a (JEN ERA L DISTRUST of this particular measure as a legacy of the "King" times, and as not offering adequate security for its promised good results it aided at the public charge. Fully appreciating the prevalence of such a Bentl ment, the committee were not Inclined to attempt to dissipate It, but simplv discharged their duty to their constituents in representing their wishes as lavorable to the public patronage of an Industrial Exhibition at the proposed location If managed and conducted in an aud responsible manner. 1 he bill for TlIK ANNEXATION Of TIIE WE3TCnESTER TOWNS of Mornsania, Klngsbrldge und West Farms to the city of New York passed the Senate on Thursday by a vote of at) to 4, thus making, with the three dissenting votes in the Assembly, au aggregate of exactly seven votes recorded against this grand measure of municipal advancement in both houses of the state Legislature. These now historical as well as mystical seven tnav be generously passed to the credit of the doughty ?fcbenezers" or llarlem, who remained truly Implacable even Into their "last dlltcu," while their iesas self-sacrificing coadjutors of the POLITICAL LAVA HBDri Or LOWBR WE4TCH?STER kept discreetly in the background daring the late legislative contest, in the nope of thereby escaping identification as rebels against the popniar will, and have since actually repudiated any counte nance of sucb obstructive movemeata Agauutt an. nexatton as were conducted by the "Ebenozer" brotherhood. In tbw discomfiture and desertion there la some thin* solemn and impressive, an<l even touching, and the occasion Is particularly inopportune for tho application to "Ebenezerism" of the ulting words of a well-known real estate speculator, concerning "local uaaociatlons, mado up only of those in the locality they represent, that are nothing but rln^s lur the burtlieiilng of the whole city with an unne cessary extravagance iu parka, boulevard* and avenues." 'lUere is a lit time for everything; but this se venty of Invective, aa ottered against the Har lem "obstructives," admits or no excuse, w.ile uieir lately accumulated woes and Injuries are yet so Iresh in their remem brance* and so poignant in tnelr impressions. so shall be sacred to silence the sorrows of the Sen ator, whose midden subsidence from the sessions of the Heuatc showed the shocked sensibility of a sensitive soul.
