The sorrow-stricken family of tbe late Chief Jus tice Chase continued to receive telegrams of con dolence from all parts or America throughout yesterday. Many of his distinguished friends and admirers In life called to view the remains at the bouse of Mr. Hoyt, In West Thirty-third street, but were not permitted to see the body, as the process of embalming had not been completed. Mr. Jus tice Field and Mr. Justice Hunt were tbe only representatives of the United States Supreme Court bench who paid their rtspects yesterday, and they will probably be the only Justices who will be present at the funeral totday. PRESIDENT GRANT telegraphed to Senator Sprague that he desired to be present at the funeral rites, but when he for. warded the despatch It Is probable that he was Ignorant or the fact that the main services would be held In this city.

But few people have called at the Hoyt Mansion durintr the last two days, and those were Intimate friends of the family of the deceased. Mrs. John J. Cisco sent a beautiful floral ottering, consisting of rare exotics, tea roses, brier and laurel*, and this, with others of che same nature, was placed upon the coffin. DESPATCH FROM (JENEBAL DIX. Among the numerous despatches received yes. terday by Senator Sprague was the following from General Dix Senator Spragpe:? ^ . You have my sincere sympathy in the loss of ytrar distinguished father-in-law, and my regret, that pressing official duties will not permit me to be present at the iuueral services to-inorrow. JOHN A. DIX. TUB FORTUNE OF THE CHIEF JUSTICE. Mr. Uoyt stated to the Herald reporter that no authoritative statement could be made regarding the late Chief Justice's fortune, as uone of hlB pri vate papers had yet been examined. lteqneit of tlie Mayor. Mayor Havemeyer requests that the flags throughout the city and those of the shipping in the port be displayed at half-mast during Satur day, the lOtn lnst., as a mark of respect to the late Chief Justice Chase* Action of the Chamber of Commerce. A special meeting of the Chamber ot Commerco was held yesterday at ene o'clock. The President* Mc Wm. E. Dodge, In opening the session, said Gentlemen?This special meeting baa t>een con vened at the request of a number of our nuiubers, who no doubt represent the leeiings of ail, a? we sympathize with our entire country in the great loss wo have sustained by the sudden death in our city or the beleved and honored Cblef Justice of thu United States. It seems appropriate that we should take special notice of the death ol one so Intimately connected with the finances of the country at one of the moat critical periods of our national Idstory. To &Un more than to any other one man do we owe a debt of gratitude for organizing our system of na tional currency and national banks, by which we have a currency ot unliorm value in all parts of the oouotrv, and which now, In the absence of a BDecle currency, Is of vast convenience to the commerce of the country. But I will not longer vccupj the time or the Chamber, but wlU invite you to proceed at once to the duties for which we are convened. Colonei P. A. Conklino then offered the following reflations The Chamber ot Commerce of the State of New York, convened an the Oth day ot May. 1173, in a apeclalmeet ing to take action ia reference te the death iu this city on the 7th in*t of the Hon. Salmon P. Chase, Chief Justice of the rlilted states, unites with the (treat body ot citi^cn* throughout our country !? the universal ex pression of ?rlef and sympathy called forth by this sud den national bereavement, and dasirea to place upon record its separate and distinct tribute of respect to the memory of the departed jurist aud statesman; there fore, Resolved, That the retrospect of the life and public services of Chief Justice Chase exhibits a career ill which great uatural abilities, unsullied purity of character ami lofty devotion to the cause of human progress and the equal rights ol man combined to lit him for pre-eminent usefulness as a trusted leader of public opinion, an iutru put champion of the oppressed, a wise administrator of national atTalra and an able and impartial Judge in the supreme tribunal of which he was the honored head: faithful to every trust conAded to hint, tearless In the discharge of every duty and ter tile in the resources of statesmanship, tho weight of re sponsibility which he boro in the time of our great na tional peril as Secretary of the Treasury In the Cabinet pi Abraham Lincoln served only to stimulate his patriot ism and to nerve hlin for his great task of providing (he financial means by which the cause of the Uniou and of tree government was sustained ugainst all danger and discouragement from the first shock of arms to the final triumph of the right. Kesolvud, That the representatives of the commercinl interests of New York owe a special debt of gratitude to the memory of Chief Justice Chare, in view of tho wise and liberal spirit which marked his official action In ref erence to all public measures affecting those intercuts, it.is .most fitting that this conimcreial metropolis, which responded so olten to his appeals for aid in the dark and stormy days ol the war, should at the peaceful close of his lite, crowned with tho hlghust honors ol judicial station, be privileged to pay the last offices ol reverence and love to his lifeless form, and to surround his blur with the tokens of public sorrow and veneration which are reserved for those who have been the bene factors of their country and of the human race. Kesolved, That a copy of this minute be published under the direction of tho secretary and couiiuuulcated to the family of Chief Justioe Chase. Mr. Gkorge Opdykb said that for a quarter of a century be had enjoyed the friendship and con fidence of the late Chief Justice, and he had never known a man more worthy to fulfil the highest public trusts. He first met him just twenty-five years ago, at the buffalo Convention, where they were fellow members of the Committee on Reso lutions which adopted the Buffalo platform. These resolutions were dratted by Mr. Chase, and served as the bond which united all opponents or slavery?the free sollers, the abolitionists and the liberal party. Mr. Chase was the head of the last named, but be yielded his views to those of the free sollers to lay the oasis of a party which should at least confine slavery to the States where It then existed. The resolutions were adopted unanimously, and they were the groundwork of the republican party. Alter further referring to the conflict with slavery in which Mr. Chase exerted such influence, he spoke ol his career during the war In which that conflict resulted. If a man of less power and purity had been at the head of the Treasury, it is a question whether we should have succeeded; but the people had confidence in Mr. cnase's Judgment and integrity, lie had left behlud him a name and history oT which any citizen of the United States might be proud. The resolutions were then adopted. Mr. Doimus said that although the meeting had been called for a special object circumstances rendered it firting that the members of the Cham ber should also take some action In regard to the death of their esteemed associate ami late Vice President, It. Warren Weston, whose funeral will take place at 17 West Sixteenth street, at ten o'clock to-merrow morning. Mr. Opdyke offered the following resolutions:? Resolved, That the Chamber of Commerce has heard with sincere sorrow of the death ot its lortner vice presi dent. R. Warren Weston. Resolved, That in the death of Mr. Weston the mer cantile community has lost a most estimable and valu able the Chamber of Commerce an active, effic ient and faithful member, and the city of New York one of the chief supporters ol its commercial greatness. Resolved, That as a merchant Mr. Weston was distin guished tor his probity, his iutelllgcnce, his unostenta tious lltieralltv. aud as the worthy successor of the firm of Uoodhue A Co. Resolved, That we tender to the family of our la mented iriend our protound sympathy In this their hour of bereavement, aud that trie Chamber ol Commerce will attend the funeral in a body. Resolved, That these resolutions be entered on the minutes ot the Chamber and published, and an authen ticated copy be transmitted to the family of Mr. Weston. The resolutions were adopted, and the Chamber then adjourned. memorial Meeting of Oltloana In New York City. In response to a call signed by S. 8. Cox> Whitelaw Held and U. L.

Upon the meeting being called to order, Hon. S. S. Cox was appointed President; deneral II. L. Burnett and Hon. R. C. Parsons, Vice Presidents, and Mr. Whitelaw Reld, Secretary.

They honor him as their former Uovernor and Senator, who as executive and legislator never tailed to vindi cate tatr uud mst and far-reaching policies of govern ment.

Meetings of the Bar were held yesterday In Brooklyn to take suitable action in respect to the memory of the late Chief Just ice Chase. A meeting was held shortly alter ten o'clock yesterday rnorn iug In tbe Brooklyn City Court room, Judge Neilson presiding. HKMAHK3 OV DISTRICT ATTORNEY BRITTON. After the calendar had been called, Mr. iirltton, the District Attorney, rose and moved the adjourn ment of the Court out of rcspect to the memory of the deceased. He said II It please the Court, there is no more fitting occasion for the liar and the Judiciary to demon strate tiy the usual token their respect lor the de parted than pronents itseir to-day. There lias been taken Trom us suddenly and un expectedly the head of the profession In the United scales, he who occupied the highest Judi cial position in the land. It Is not possible for iiie , to reler in fitting terms to the character and j capacity of the great man who has thus gone. ] Those who have occupied that position, and they have been few, have always occupied a commemo rate position in the view of the world, and the de cisions or the United states Supreme Court have everywhere commanded the highest respect. Among those who have adorued that bench Chief Justice Cha*e, who has jnst taken his departure, was not the least. Although com paratively lew year* in that position his de cisions have challenged comparison with those of his eminent predecessors, as it is, having been but a few years nn that position, probably his greatest fame will be associated with other posi tions which he has occupied in this country. Mr. Ilritton hero briefly reviewed the career of Chief Justice chase in (its several official cauaci ties, speaking of his character in terms of the highest pr&Ue. REMARKS or JTTDOK NEIL80N. Chief Judge Neilson then spoke as follows:? The Court entirely concurs with what has been said, and recognizes this motion as eminently proper and becoming. We thereiore graut the motion and direct that an entry of these proceed ings be made 1r the minutes of the Court. We have before us the retrospect of a great lire turned to great account, it is not Bimply that the deceased had keen a distinguished member of the Bar, had been Governor of his fritate, had been Senator, had been, at a trying time in our history, Secretary of the Treasury, but, bringing It more nearly home to us, that he has been the Qdief Justice of the United States for a period oi about clgin years, and that only the other day he perlormed his last official act by adjourning ins Court. Although wc represent State Interests, yet, as the profession feel, and as liberal statesmen well know, we have a very great and immediate In terest in the decisions made bv the Supreme Court of the United States. We find In the decisions of that Court the leading discrimination and large generalization so needful to a wholesome culture, and the late Chief Justice took high rank in that field ol service. In tne condition of tiis health for some time past he may have had mercilul admonitions that his Hie might not long contiuue, and there is reason to hope that his death was peaceful and serene. Ills last hours were the more tranquil by reason of the presence of his loving family. We have a mote tender regard for his mem ory to-day, because he was a devoted Christian, exemplary and pure, In his life a man of tender atlectlons. It is well known that his associates on the Bencb held him in great regard, the members of the liar practising berare him in great respect. His letters to his friends disclose a foumtain of kindness and affection, anil his life contributes a bright page to our judicial history. This Court will now adjourn. A meeting was also held at hair-paBt twelve o'clock in the United States Court Building, corner or Montague and Clinton streets. The bench was occupied by Judge Benedict, of the United States Court; Judge Gilbert, of the Supreme Court; Judgo Moore, of the County Court, and Judges Nlelson, M'Cue and Reynolds, of the City Court. DISTRICT ATTOIINNEY TKNNKY'S REMARKS. When the meeting had been called to order United States District Attorney Tenney said The sad Intelligence has reached us, by telegram and otherwise, tnat Salmon P. Chase, the Chief Jus tice of the United States Is dead. And as a recogni tion of this sad event, and a fitting tribute of respect to his memory and his worth, I do now move the ailjournmeut or this the Circuit Court or the Eastern District of New York, and that a record or such adjournment be entered by the clerk npou the minutes of this Court. It seems peculiarly fitting and proper that we, who are still returned In the trial of life, should pause in the conflict to do honor to our rallen chieftain?he whose record has oeen closed, whose brief has been ended, who has moved back from the tableand passed on to that Grand Assize?the Court or Last Resort, where justice is judge, and "where the wicked cease rrom troub ling, and the weary are at rest." This bereavement strikes not at the ledeial courts aloae, but it reaches the State courts also; and I, therefore, in the name of tho legal fraternity, most cor dially welcome to these rooms and these exer cises the judges or our State courts, whom it is our pleasure to see among us. It is customary, I know, on occasions like the present, to speak of those whom we would eulogize as the foremost Individual or his time. Yet of a truth can this be said of Chief Justice Chase, lie was, indeed, a peer among his peers. However distinguished ho may have been as a jurist, a financier or a statesman, yet his true greatness, it seems to me, Is to be found in the purity of his lire and the nobility of his manhood. No man can be really great from external circum stances alone. True greatness must come lrom within, rrom tho heart and soul or the man; and this was peculiarly the case with Mr. Cliase. He was great In thought as well as in action; greut In honesty, great iu his fidelity to principle, to country and to man. These are his jewels and credentials. His whole life seems to have been anchored on the side of right. Throughout the entire period 01 his eventful career he seems to have been actuated by that one sublime idea, that duties were Ids, while the re sults were with God. Mr. Chase, by his life and by his death, has personified more emphatically tban any other American, 1 think, what the poet has so fittingly said in words, that? Donor and fame from no condition rise: Act well your part?thure all the honor liea. The District Attorney spoke for some rurther length upon tho lire and official acts of the de ceased. Ex-Judge Bccbe, Mr, R. Q. Huntley and General Catlln also spoke. BKMARKS OP JUPdK b8nkdict. Judge Bkneuict said Intelligence of the Tact which Has caused this motion to be made was received by this Court with profound regret, and the presence of so many members of rtie Hur and the Judges who preside over the tribunals of this city attests that this regret is universal. With respect to the deceased, it is sufficient lor this occasion to say that when that portion of tho history of this country Is read that narrates the great moral revolution on the subject- of slavery, there will be fonnd the name of Mr. Chase us a leader. In the history of the war of the revo lution that followed, Mr. Chase will appear at the head of the department of government which was required to furnish the means wherewith to prosecute that great war; and when the ju dicial history ol the year subsequent to the rebellion has been examined, Mr. Chase will appear as the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States, the court of last resort; as one by reason of whose pre-eminent genius the questions arising from that eventrul epoch were satisfactorily settled. But few men have been called to the position of Chief Justico of the United States. The flrst Chief Justico was Jay, who held the position for six years. The next was Kutledge who heid the position (or one year; the next was Ellswworth, who held the position for Ave years; the next was Marshall, who held the position for thirty-five years, and the next was Tanoy, who hold the posi tion tor twenty-eight years. The last was Chase, who held the position for nine years. The de ceased was one of those men who have been called to this position, perhaps the high est in the land. No ordinary man could discharge an office so high and so full or responsibility. It is due to the memory or the matu and in this Court especially It is proper, out of rSspect to the high office which he held, that the motlen of ihe District Attorney should be granted. It is, accordingly, ordered that the District Court or the United States do adjourn, and that it stand adjourned until the close or the day of his burial, and that the clerk outer a minute or the proceed ings on the records of the Court.

FOBGEBY AND FBAUD, Soma Ugly Revelations that Wefe Hade at the City Hall Yeaterday, Implicating Aldermen and Aaaistant Aldermen and the % Clerks of Both Boards?How the Servants of the People Discharge Their Du ties Themselves. There has long existed beneath the Mayor's office, la the City Hall, what is known as "THK BUREAU OK PBRHIT8." Under the old Tatnmany regime It is alleged that It was run In the Interest of certain sinecures of William Marcy Tweed, and little revenue was re turned to the city. Within a few days the Herald has published an exposare of this bureau that has created a lively sensation in certain circles, which Anally culminated yesterday, when the word was whispered around the City Hall that the Herald exposure had eventuated In the ventilation of GIGANTIC FRAUDS AND FORGERIES in the issue of permits for street incumbrances. These most seriously implicated certain clerks of the Assistant Board of Aldermen, who, It was said, had resorted to forgery to levy a tax of from $1 to $5 upou each applicant lor a permit. Tho reporter of the Herald who had written up the Permit Bureau, over which a German named Weiss presides, heard these rumors, and with a viow of ascertaining Information he called upon Captain Wendell, chief Clerk for Uayor Have meyer. Mr. Wendell is one of the non-committal gentle men In the Mayor's office, wto* endeavors to shift THK RESPONSIBILITY POR A SENSATION from his own shoulders to those of a reporter, and when the Ulrald reporter, after Alderman Fal coner, who bad had a long confidential Interview, retired, put the question:? "Mr. Wendell, I understand that you have dis covered frauds and forgeries in the applications for permits in a bureau over which you preside. Is there any truth In the report?" he responded "1 have given It to ' 's boy,' andlsupposo you have learned all about It." Herald Kbi'Ortkk?No, sir, I do not know " 'a boy" nor Giuxj' baby,1' but I know the Aldermen ana their assistants, and I do not pro pose to apply there for information. Tou are tno authority for this rumor, and I come to you, as chief clerk of the Mayor's offlce, for Information. Mr. Wendell, somewhat alarmed, lifted his eyes, after Alderman Falconer had retired, and in a low tone communicated to the Ueuald reporter the fact fUat In the Bureau of Permits several ap plications had been made to Mr. Weiss In which FORGED SIGNATURES OP ALDERMEN had appeared. The little Captain brus hed up his hair, and finally said, "The ordinances provide that all applications for permits shall be signed by an alderman and the assistant alderman of the district where the applicant resides. We nave knowledge that the names of assistant aldermen have been slgued by clerks or officials In the Clerk's office of the Assistaut Board, and MONKY CHARGED KOR TIIE APPROVAL." "Do you pretend to tell me," asked the Herald reporter of Captain Wendell, "that approvals of permit applications arc signed In the Clerk's office oi the Assistant Hoard of Aldermen by clcrks who use the names el their aldermen?" Captain Woudell hesitated a moment and finally said "1 learn that certain persons have^ppplled for permits In theolUce or the Board of Assistant Al ueriuen, and have, by paying a dollar or more, secured the names of the Assistant Aldermen to their papers." "AND ARB THEY FORUBRIES?" asked the reporter. Mr. Wendell leaned back In his chair and hesi tated. Herald Reportkr?Can you give me cases In point? Are all the clerks of the Board of Assistant Aldermen implicated. Mr. Wendell was again silent, and Anally sug gested that the Herald reporter might play the part of detective, apply for a permit and learn the modiut uiwrawli. The reporter approved the suggestion aud declared that he would work upon It Turning to leave, Mr. Wendell said that he had no personal knowledge that the deputy clerks of the Board of Assistaut Aldermen were parties to I the fraud, but he had knowledge that u man not connected with the Hoard In a.iy official capacity had a desk in the offlce and charged certain sums for the signatures of Assistant Aldermen, "And," said he in conclusion, * "1 learn that thore 1b in that bureau A DRAWER FULL OF BLANE APPLICATIONS. I may say, however, that I have no knowledge that justifies me in charging forgery upon any Clerk of the Assistant Board of Aldermen." The reporter at once repaired to Clerk Moloney's quarters In room No. 10 aud discovered that he was absent. From Assistaut Alderman Foley, who was at a desk, he learued that that gentleman nail long been engaged In signing recommendations; but he and the deputy clerks DENIED TUB CIIARGB that any charge had been made for signing per mits. one ol the clerks, however, when Informed of the exposure of the lUng became excited and said:? "The same thing is done In the Clerk's office of the Board of Aldermen." "With the concurrence of General Plnckney, Clerk," queried the reporter. "Oh. no! perhaps not," said be: "but Mr. Garry signs the names of Aldermen Keilly and Fluuagan us Aldermen apuroving the application." "l)o they do it iu biabk ?" asked the reporter. "I do not know. You can quietly 00 IN AND FIND OUT," the deputy clerk said, with a peculiar wink. As the reporter entered he encouutered Alder man John llellly going out, and remarked :? i "Mr. Rellly, may I ask If you have ever given any body permission or a power of attorney to sign your name In approval of application fbr permits lor street obstructions ?" "Never," responded Mr. RelUy. "Why do you ask ?" The reporter took Mr. Heilly aside and explained the difficulty, wheu he most emphatically denied that he had ever delegated any authority to any body to sign his name, and, stepping up to Clerk Samuel M. Slater's desk, Mr. Keilly said:? "Has anybody been in the habit oi signing my name to applications for permits r" Mr. Slater quickly responded:? "Ves, sir. Mr. Garry lias doue so, and I HAVE SIUNKD ALDEKMAN FLANAGAN'S NAME." "Have you a power of attorney to sign Alderman Flanagan's name?" asked the reporter. "Yes," responded Mr. Slater. "Will you show it to me?" asked the reporter, In the presence of Alderman Heilly. ??Not without Alderman Flanagan's permission," said Mr. Slater. "The applications have been so numerous that no Alderman can sign them all, and 1 have authority from Alderman Flanagan to ap prove them. Hut," added he, "there Is not a clerk In the Hoard of Aldermen wUo has profited a ccnt in this matter." At this jtiucture CLKRK (1ARRY CAME IN, and Alderman llellly asked him ir he had signed his (Itcllly's) name to applications for permits. Mr. Garry quickly admitted that he had, and told Alderman Itellly that he had authority to do so. Alderman Rellly responded that he had sufficleut education to sign hlsowu name, and informed Mr. Garry that lie had never, verbally or otherwise, delegated to hlin any power in the premises. Mr. Garry insisted that Mr. Keilly had done so. and the question of power remains between Clerk Garry and Alderman Rellly. While the above interview was progressing Alderman Flanagan came in, and. IcaruUig of the excitement, stepped up to the Hbrald reporter aud politely said:?"If there is any blame attaching to my anproval of applicatiens lor permits 1 will assume It, as I authorized this gentleman (Mr. Slater) to sign my name." This declaration of Alderman Flanagan was made In the presence of an immense lobby, and there was at onco a scat term ir of the crowd which had gathered to witness TIIK CI.KRl'S DISCOMFITURE. later the Herald reporter conversed with As- I slstant Clerk Tuomey, who stated tliut the prac tice lor years had been for Aldermen and Assistant i Aldermen to sign their names through a clerk, but he had warned the clcrks against committing tho Indiscretion. As far as the Investigations of tho Herald reporter were pushed, he is satisfied that the names or Aldermen and Assistant Aldermen have been rorged (and Mr. Wiess hua the evi dence), but so far there Is nothing to implicate tho clerks of the Hoard of Aldermen, General Plnckney and Messrs. Tuomey, Garry and Slater, in the charge of receiving money for the nnauthorl/.ed use ol the names of Aldermen In whose Interest they acted. A day or two, however, may result in some ugly developments. RAILROAD MATTERS IH JERSEY.

Another Busy Day About the City Hall. nominations of City Marshals and Mem bers of the Commission of Public Charities and Correction?The Aldermen Lay Them Over. SKETCHES OF THE NOMINEES. Another day of exoltement waa anticipated about the City nail yesterday, and In a measure the ex pectation was fulfilled. Dp to about four o'clock there was a hurrying to and lro and a bustling among the "boys" that was plainly Indicative o* the deep Intorest they feit in the coming events. The Mayor was to send lu more nominations to the Board of Aldermen for confirmation, and next to the anxiety of the men who hoped to be nominate* was the deep concern of the men who expecten small positions under the nominees. Of course every man had a theory as to the probable action of the Board, and had It "straight" from an tnaiae man who were to be the nominees and what par ticular commissions were to be the subject of Mayor Havemeycr's nominating communication. "The Mayor is goln' to send In nominations for Police and Fire commissioners to-day." "Is that so?" "That's fact. I got It from Alderman Bo-and-s?. He was In to seo the Mayor about an hour ago." Walk to the middle of the vestibule ana ask an other </uid nunc what the Mayor was going to do, and he "gives away" something like this:? "Well, he's goln' to send in a nomination for Chamberlain. But, mind, Johnnie, don't give It away, because I got it In contldence." Inquiring of the next of the "knowing ones" en countered would probably elicit the fact that the Fire and Charities were the only commissioners to be named at this meeting of the Board, and another would tbll it in A WniSTBH that the Dock Commissioners were to bo sent in. Then, changing base, the reporter was enabled to learn that the Aldermen were going to confirm the names sent In without laying them over. That, indeed, was the opinion exprossed to the re porter by one of the members of the Board. Half an hour afterward the reporter was informed that the Aldermen only confirmed the nominations on Thursday so as to mislead the Mayor Into thinking they were going to rush things straight along for him, and in the event of his sending them in a complete batch of nominations for all the offices yet to be filled they would then hold on to them and exact terms. This, however, seemed rather "thin " as the game was not deep enough. 0?*" ever, 'these rumors were Just as good as any, for of tliem all none was right.
