THE COURTS. A COHSTO OEHESAL IS TROUBLE. Mr. X. 0. B. Garsia, Consul General of Uruguay, Charged with Misappropriation of a Large Bum of Money?A History of the Steamship Ti?The Accused Held to Answer?The Other Side To Be Heard from. A CONSUL GENERAL IN TROUBLE. The Consul General of Uruguay Sard In a Civil Bait?He la Arreated on a Capias laaued by the United States Dla trlct Court?'litatory of the Caae. Yesterday Edward C. B. Garsia, the Consul Gen eral of Urngaay to the United States in this city, who had been arrested on civil process lBsued from the United States district Court, was brought before Commissioner Shields* Mr. Garsia is sued oa the common law slda of the Ceurt by Mr. Nathaniel McKay, of Boston, to recover the sum of $11,568. This money, it is alleged, lie received from the l*ontn American Company of BuenoH Ayres In payment of tne balance of the price of a steamer which the firm of McKay A Aldus, of Bos ton, had built for that cempany, and it is farther charged that instead of paying over this money to that tlnn he converted it to his own ubc, and lost It, or part of it, in stock speculations. We give the tacts of the case, so far as they ap pear in the papers filed In the matter. The affidavit of Nathaniel McKay states that he is the plaint iff in this action, and that lie has a good and valid cause of action against Edward C. R. Garcia, whs resides in the city ef New Yorfc, and wa? at the tuae of the racts stated in the com plaint, and is now, Consul General lor Uruguay to the United States at ttie city ol New York. On the lid of June, 1868, McKay and oae George Aldus were shipbuilders at Boston, Mass. Belore that date and In the Fall of 1867 that firm had con tracted with the Hetith American Company ef Buenos Ayres to build for that company a steam ship called "VI." On the 2d ol June, inhh, the steamship was rsady for delivery to the company, but the company was then unable ta pay the balance due McKay A Aldus on the steamship. This balance was made tip of $9,000 then unpaid out oi $158,000, the amount f>f the contract price, and of $2,668 71 alditional expense which had been incurred in tha building nud in connection with the ste: mer. Garsia was then in busi ness at No. 19 Broad street, in this city, and McKav, Garsia and one Flora, who was then agent of the Bnenos Ayres Company, agreed that that company should lorward to Garsia for McKay k Aldus the balance of $11,668 71 due that lirm on the steamship from the company and that Garsia, who so personally agreed, would receive this money for McKay k Aldus and would there upon pay It over to McKay ?V Aldus, or in payment of drafts, amounting in all to the sum of $11,5<JS 71, which the Arm should draw on Garsia. It was then agreed that drafts should be drawn on Garsia for the amount named, payable at a future day, and that Garsia should accept the drafts; that at their maturity on the receipt of the money from the company Garsia should thcreupou pay the pro ceeds of the drafts, or in case the firm should be compelled to take up the drafts (Jarsia should pay them over to the tirm. Under this agreement the steamBhlp was delivered. The drafts were made and accepted by Garsia, and a receipt of payment was executed to the company, based on the under standing that the money should be forwarded to Garsia for the firm of McKay k Aldus. The dralts having matured, were renewed, and Garsia agreed to receive the money from the company for McKay A Aldus. In this arrangement it is claimed that Garsia acted as agent for that firm to receive and pay over to them the money; that he subsequently received the money; that lie did not pay It over to the firm as agreed, but that he embezzled it and fraudulently converted it to his own use In stock speculations. These are the principal allegations in the com* plaint. The defendant, Mr. Garsia, had succeeded yester day in procuring one bondsman to give security for him, but at a late hour last evening he had not completed the required bail. He will, of course, put in an answer to the complaint, and, as soon as he does so his side of the matter will, in justice to him, be presented to the public. BUSINESS IN THE OTHER COURTS.

Broad way, commenced In January to steal neckties and laces, the value of all stolen amounting to $600. He was detected and arrested, and Informed his employers md the police officer that he <li8po?ea of them to Sparenburg. A search warrant wan procured, and Mr. luslee, oie of the firm. Hendrlckson and Ofllccr Uolaa proceeded to tbe defendant's place.

The thief swore that he bad sold neck net- Hnd laces to Sparentxirg fifteen times; that he did not pawn them and never received any pawn tickets from liirn. On the contrary, the de fendant with equal posltiveneas testified that he never bought any ties from hint and that the laees were pawned and regularly entered on his books.

The Appearance of the Wretched Man in the Tombs?Clinging to a Delusive and Uncertain Hope?The Friday that la to Come. Micbael Nixon, lately sentenced to death for the murder ol Charles 1'hyfer, will be hanged next Friday. He is now confined in the Tombs, and scorns to have recovered from the fright which took possession of his so il immediately after the sentence of death was pronounced npon him in Court. A reporter of the IIkkald spoke to him yes terday in company with Warden Johuston. Nixon is a low-sized man, without any distinc tive mark of manhood in his features, lie lias black whiskers, and is dressed in a sort of shabby genteel suit of black cassimere. When we approached he was sitting by the big stove, in the corridor which runs between the two rows oi cells, known as "Murderers' Row," and talkiug to one of the Sheriffs deputies, two of whom are now guarding him con stantly, and will until the latal mement comes when he will have to expiate nis crime on the gallows. The hardest heart would be moved to pity alter looking at the poor wretch as lie sat by the stove, without hope, money or friends, knowing that he has but one more Friday to live, in speaking to the reporter he declared that he had nothing to say. and that, he did not wish to bold a conversation with any person on any matter that might be made public through the press. The keepers declare that his appetite and spirits have improved, and that lie seems to be clinging to some delusive and uncertain hope, which will never be realized. THE EIGHT-HOUR LAW. Resignation of the l'reiident?The Con stitution and By-'aws. The Eight-hour Enforcement League held a meet ing at the Germania Assembly Rooms last night to take measures to enforce the Eight-hour law. The President, Mr. Maddux, called the meeting to order, and after the reading of the minutes by the Secretary, Mr. Ward, of the Internationals, arose and said that as his work and that of his brothers was now done?they having organized t tie body?he would withdraw, owing to the prejudice entertained by some ot the working men of America to the Federal Council of the In ternationals. He offered his resignation, as lie thougnt it would be best for the organization, M he was confident his presence kept many working men away. A committee irom the League was t nen appointed to conier with the Federal Conncll and request, the withdrawal of the resignation. Mr. Connolly, the chairman of the Committee on Constitution and by-laws, read part ol the consti tution, wbicn was adopted, and on motion the committee continued in power, with instructions to draw up a request to the several labor organiza tions to join the League. The League will meet again on the second Friday in June. THE BBOOKLYN BRIDGE BOTHER. Report of the Special Committee of the Board of Aldermen. The Special Committee of the Brooklyn Hoard of Aldermen, which was appointed some time since to investigate the affairs of the East River llridge Company, have made a very careful examination for the purpose, if possible, of detecting any fraud which might exist in the management. They had a number of contractors anil others before them, I and took a large amount of testimony. Now tney | have completed their investigation and have drawn up their report, which they will submit to the Aldermen on Monday. They held a private i meeting on Thursday lu the Corporation Counsel's ofllce, in the City llall, where the report was rare ! fully read over and signed by all the members present except Alderman Wylle, who propose* to submit a minority report. The majority report sets forth that the worn has been done In the most I economical manner, and they are unable to detect | the existence of anj iraud. The report entirely I exonerates all ttie managers from any blame. j Alderman Wylie's report is to the effect that tho J management has been of a speculative character. TYPOGRAPHICAL THIEVES. Mr. Rowiav, the foreuiau of Mr. Frank McElroy's printing establishment, 09 and 101 William street, has for some past been missing types and brass rules. Suspecting some of the employes of dis honesty, he set awatchforthe "artful dodger," and on Tnursday the vigilance of the watchman was rewarded, for he captured Henry Kirchhoff. aired twenty, and Eddie Hart, aged fourteen, walking out ot the establishment with their leaden load. They were brought before Justice liogan yesterday morning, who committed Kirchhoff. but listened to Mr. M< Kirov's prayer for young Hart, who, Mr. McKiroy thought, ought to l>e let off on account of 'ins age. A SERI0U8 RAILROAD~ACCII?EUT. Watkrbtht, May 9,1873. An accident occurred to-day on the II. P. and F. Railroad,- by which one man was killed, two aovcre ly and eight slightly wounded. The accident wan caused t>y the rciW car of the freight train leaving the track. , LIBERAL CLUB LECTURE. Or. Frederic II. Marria on Epidemic Delusions, Normoalim and 8plrttn?l lira?A Vtgoront Expose. Dr. Frederic R. Marvin lectured last evening he fore the Liberal Club, at Plimpton Hall, on "Epi demic Delusions." He said:?It Beems to have been the peculiar mission of modern science to demonstrate tbe permanency and universality of law, to drive from the universe tbe very thought of caprice and to introduce Inviolable harmony where was the wildest discord, rudest fancy and merest Action. To modern Bcience noth ing Is more impossible than miracle, nothing more absurd than accident. The rational phi losopher recognizes no causes but such as are re ducible to law, and all causes are natural and im mutable. He discovers the play of law not only in the motion of a planet and tbe falling of an apple, but in the prevalence of a crime and the rise or a religion. All tilings have causes?all are In their turn causes and governed by perfect and consist ent law. The thoughts we think, the emotions we feel and the acts we perform are links In a chain no effort can break, and that will endure when we shall have crumbled inte dust, and In our graves we shall still be governed by a law we obeyed before the cradle of infancy received us. There Is no escape, no truce, no delay. Science has torn the mask or lable from the face of Nature and re vealed the marvellous features that no skill may In terpret Of all delusions that have spread themselves over the earth, making and destroying the phllose pliy of the world, none are bo thoroughly disinte grating as that of MOKAL A(1 EN or. The philosopher now detects the working of nat ural law as much in the rise of a religion or the growth or a crime ob in the revolution of the sea sons and tlie flowing of the tides. The modern his torian seeks lor law in the rise or a kingdom and the murder of a prince. The theologian finds in cli matic causes the secret of a religion anil In the topograpny ol a country tlie cause of a revival. The psychologist sees in the tides of crime that rise and la.ll century after century?now overflow ing the banks ol civilization and now receding al most iroui view?the working of natural laws tliat cannot be circumvented nor successfully resisted. A word or two as to what is meaut by the terms moral and CRIHINAL EPIDEMICS. Crime moans violation of civil law. It may or may not be sinful, but It is always illegal. Crime is one tniug and sin another. Crime depends on civil law for its existence, and If there were no law there could be 110 crime, since crime is a violation of law, and non-existent laws cannot be spoken of as violated. The Creek word "epidemic" means common to many people?seizing on many people at the same time. Morality I apprehend to consist in obedience to natural law, a violation of which may or may not be sinial. A moral epidemic, then, aiguilles vice seizing on many people at the same time, while a criminal epidemic signifies crime seizing on many people at the same time. In the one case we have crime and in tlie other vice as suming an epidemic form. The subject of moral and criminal epidemics Is one of Immediate and vital Interest to the age In which we live. All around us, at home and abroad, lor good and evil, the subtle laws are at work, and their invisible fingers forever weave the wondrous web 01 events; and It Is your duty, as students of science, to understand those laws and guard against their abuse. We need not go back a single century for Illus tration of the subject. LOOK AT MOKMONI8M, with its thousands 01 saints assembled in the val ley of Salt Lake. If ever a religion was estab lished and a people gathered on a basis utterly shallow and fictitious, that reilglou was Mormon ism and that people the Latter Day Saints; and yet never was there a creed more enthusiastically embraced or bravely defended. Look lor a mo ment at the ongiu of the lalth. Joseph Smith, a man or prodigious personal magnetism, but an audacious liar, a bankrupt and a murderer? a man whose character Montesquieu naively describes as "not possessing precisely the innocence ol a virgin"?this man sud denly, and with no reformation of character, becomes an interpreter of Cod's will to man?the inspired discoverer and translator 01 a book he had the audacity to call divine. On the word of this utterly abandoned and profligate man, and with no guarantee whatever for his sincerity, thousands deliberately forsook their religion, turned their backs on their native land and followed the for tunes of the Dretender to a new and Western world. The age In which we live Is not free from epidem ics or a moral and criminal nature, i might in stance religious enthusiasm, political excitemeuts anil social frenzy. 1 might speak ol TUK KISS OK Sl'llUTl ALlSSf, the revival ol Materialism and the new impulse given to socialism. How will you assist in tne production of such a public sentiment us sluill uiake moral and criminal epidemics impossible? You will all assist in your several capacities; but in general, I may say that it is your duty to withhold your sympathy from all such'movements as either result from or contribute to superstitlou. Preserve a calm, intelligent and unwavering allegiance to rational science, and in whatever way opportunity may indicate, whether on the public platform, In the printed page, by the bed of sickness or in the seclusion of private life, always teach, both by precept and example, a quiet irame 01 mind, sell-control and an uuwavenng faith in ucleuce. NATIONAL TEMPERANCE SOCIETY. Annual Meeting of the National Tem perance Society?The Work of the Or ganization Daring the Year?Resolu tions in Reference to Kecent Legisla tion. The eighth anniversary of the National Tem perance Society was held last evening in Associa tion Ilall. The night was stormy and the attend ance was limited. The lion. William E.

Meeting Lait K<rrnlug In the Anthon Memorial Church?Addresses by lilsliop | Potter and Other*. A missionary meeting, under the aus; Ices of what Is called the Auxiliary Committee, was held last evening In the Anthon Memorial church, In Forty-eighth street, near Sixth aveuue. There was but a slim attendance, owing; to the Inclemency of the weather. The A/rlcan Mission was the theino of the speakers who addressed the meeting. There were present the UlKht Kev. Bishop Potter, Chairman of the committee; the Right Hev. Dr. Auer, the newly consecrated Hlsop of Cape Paimas, Africa, besides the Rev.

After him tbe Rev. Mr. Newton, rector of Anthon Memorial church, made a few appropriate re marks. and called for contributions for the, African mission ol his church. EXPLORATION OF TBE TERRITORIES. An Interview with tbe Chief Geographer of the United States Surrey of the Ex ploring Expedition?-What Hai Been Done and What la Likely To Be Done by the Expedition?The Beauty, the Value and the Wealth of the Terri tory of Colorado. Mr. James T. Gardner, tbe chief geographer or the United States survey or the exploring ex pedition, is In the city, and a reporter or tbe JIbkald called upon him yesterday to Inquire as to tbe progress or the expedition. In reply to a general inquiry or the reporter Mr. Gardner said ' that he would prefer making a statement to an swering any general questions, which might take

np his time in going over a general field or Inquiry, the answers to which would only render a reitera tion or statements that wero already well known to every one who took any interest whatever in this exploration question. The reporter therefore took down the statement of Mr. Gardner as he dictated it. TilK ORGANIZATION OF TUB EXPEDITION. The Department or the Interior ordered a geo logical survey of the Territories, under the charge ol Professor V. B. Qaydcn, who has, for several years, been conducting expeditions in the region of tbe Yellow Stone Park. lie ban made an Interesting and extensive set of reports or tbe wonderful geyser region or Montana, those gey sers being by rar the most remarkable In the world. His extensive collection ol photographs taken in this region bave made its wonders known in all parts or the world. This survey was re organized * by the laws of Congress and named "The Geological and Geographical Surveys of tbe United States Territories." Congress wished the topographical work to be conducted under the influence and direction of geologists, and also wished the survey to become a more permanent organization. It was round neces sary, In order to conduct this work properly, that the assistants should continue from year to year In their several localities before being formed into a permanent corps, as the work required great ex perience In order to conduct it successfully. The reorganization that has been effected to tills end, a* ?t present organized, consists or a corps or gcol ogtxts lu charge 01 tbe staff and three geological assistants, several eminent palauntologists, several naturalists, photographer and artist; a geogra pher and a staff of tbree topographers, three as sistant topographers, several metallurgists and draughtsmen, a quartermaster and assistant quar termaster. PRESENT FIELD OF OPERATION. The field or operations ordered by Congress tor a general survey arc the mountainous parts or that part of Colorado lying to the west of Denver, and thntpart of Utah which lies east of the Green Kiver. This region includes the most remark able and the most extensive group ol high mountains in the United States. It is vet junexplored, but it is expected that the highest peak yet measured on this Continent may be iound in tbe group or mountains lying west of Soutli l'ark. The system or narrow guage railroads now being built in Colorado will bring the whole of this region within four days of >'ew York, and will soon become one of the lavorlte resorts ol Summer tourists seeking health and novelty ol scenery. It is considered exceedingly desirable that accurate maps ol this region shall be furnished as soon as possible, so that a lull knowledge ol its beauties and its resources shall be given to the country. J'HK MINERAL WEALTH. Tlie region includes also the gold and silver de posits oi Colorado, and certainly some of the moat extensive gold fields of the Continent. OBJECT OF TUB SURVEY. The object ol the survey 1h not only a general description of the resources of this country, witn photographs to show itB physical features, but also carelul, scientific examination of the mineral wealth of that part 01 our country. It Is to l>e hoped that the present organization, under the In terior Department, will be able to satisfy these de mands for accurate knowledge oi our Western re sources at an early date. It Is fully expected that the reports oi the surveys in Colorado will pro\ e as interesting to the country as those already made by Dr. llaydeu upon the wonders ol Montana. MINBKAL DEPOSITS. With reference to the mineral deposits, the gold and sdver mines are not quite so productive as they were, attributable probably to the careless, profligate and unscientific maimer of working, The country is, however, very rich in mineral de posits, and there is one curious fact in connection with this which is probably wortny of noticing? that there are two cities ol Colorado, each twenty miles apart, in one of which the mines produce only gold aud In the other silver. The value ot the coal deposit will be very great. There is a new mining region developed in the west ol .South I'ark that may prove of vaiue to the old mlniug region of Colorado. Central City and Ueorge Town have proved eminently productive. aoricultuhal prospects. The agricultural development of the country has remarkable matures. At the base oi the Kocky Mountains there is a strip of pasturage land boo miles long and 100 broad, that is available all the year round. Inasmuch as the mountains protect It irom the storms of Winter, for the pasturage of cattle. Three hundred miles ol this is already used for this purpose; the remainder goes into the lu dian country and has not yet been used. The cattle speculators meet the cattle men from Kan sas, alter a long Summer drive of cattle, and pur cuase these cattle, put them on the pasturage land, and the result ol their cattle Investments Is a profit ol twenty-five per cent. I know of an instance where, out of fioo head of cattle placed on this land throughout the Winter, only six had been lost. Therelore the agricultural resources of the country are unquestionably attractive. THE POPULATION OF COLORADO.

BEECHLR'S FRIDAY NICBT TALK. A (fillet Hour in Plymouth t'hurcli?The Unity and Brotherly Lore of the Con grrgntlon?Young People'* Moderation with Regard to AmuitmtnU. The hour of meeting.sit Plymouth Church on Fri day evcnlugs lias i>een changed to eight o'clock, but apparently many (lid not know of it last night, for they were looking anxiously for Mr. Beecher. He came lu a few minutes oeiore eight o'clock, and, ; In reply to the inquiring faces which greeted him, said, "Eight o'clock, you know." Mr. Beecher gave out a hymn, which the presid ? lng genius at the piano endeavored to convert from common metre to sevens, which made rather a mixture of it. Alter going through one verse Mr. Beecher announced the mistake, and said he guessed they would try another, but Anally suc ceeded in singing the first one. After the other usual preliminary services, Mr. I Beecher said that nothing tended to draw men together by their best feelings as laboring in a common cause in which self cannot enter. It is trno that'in society at large one may chance to meet a very pleasant friend, but these are single Instances. Where can you find such friendship as that of brother anil sister as where there is the spirit of Christ? There are no enjoyments that have inch fragrance, such perpetual youth us those which come lrom religious laltor. oiten people are ho lull of care that they carry the burden without knowing it. With us we are Bl.ESSKl) OK T1IK t.ORD. We are drawn together by common, serious, earnest lat>or. In this large congregation oi 2,300 or 2,400 members most of them have their sphere of labor ut home, but a lew hundreu of them have their parishes, as it were, in which they visit weekly, giving comfort and consolation. It has produced a contentment a satisfaction, aud there has been little trouble as to the amusement lor the young people- To be sure we have had a 'large toleration; but In so large a congregation it is remarkable that there have been so lew large and expensive parties aud so little call for doubttul amusements. I see many persons who would have been fair, bnt there Is a larger stature in them from this dis interested labor in the cause of Christ. Now, it would hardly do for mc to ten wnat I kuow about different meml>ers, but I could take a score of them and tell them what they might have been, nut 1 spare their blushes. When we huvo t? go apart you will look back to your experience, when yoo sang and wept and prayed and worked among us a blessed experience. Brother Bell sails to-morrow for Kurope, to recruit his failing health. It is oar pleasure to express our gratitude to him lor the work he has done among us, and our sym pathy for his state of health, and we hope he will come back to us able to carry on the work which be labored at la jrears gone by. <a?BSEY CITY'S DB8P0TS. H^tc the Taxpayers Any Blgkti,t)tf(Uli , Arc Boaod to Rwpeet !-Wh?t Govern ment by CmunUiIihi Hh Brought Fortk. Among the rules and regulations of the new ad> ministration in Jersey citj In reference to the Water Department la the following The Commissioners, and every person delegated by thcui fur the purpose, shall have accent at all times to all parts ofall promises or vessels where Pat?alc water Is used, to Inspect the condition and use of all plumbing. Tne flrat taxpayer who protested against this arbi trary regulation waa Dr. Hadden, of Grand street, who la determined that It shall not be carried out In his house, at least. There la hardly one house in ten In the city In which the execution of this rule will be tolerated, it opens the way for burg lars and sneak thievea, who may, if the prize be worth the attempt, employ iorged certificates. The words "at all times" woulu be not simply Insulting, but essentially tyrannical, were it possible to carry out auch a pro vision. By night, as well aa by day, according to this, the doors of taxpayers must bo thrown open to "delegates." The terms In which Hie rule is framed show but too plainly the cali bre of the officials to whom the administration of the affairs of Jersey City is entrusted under the im proved (?) system of government by commissions. But this is not all. The new Assessors Intend to Sursue a similar course. A gentleman who resides 1 the Third district presented himself at the City llall a few days ago to make an affidavit as to the value of his personal property, when he was in formed by the Assessor (Tom that district that such a course was wholly unnecessary, as he (the As sessor) would visit every house and see lor him self. Thla announcement Is all the more surprising, aa notices have been posted up calling on taxpay ers to appear at the City Hall and testify as to the value oftiieir personal property. The administration of last year, with all Its faults, never descended to absurdities, and though the taxes were heavy be yond expectation most of the taxpayers felt that there was comparative fairness. People are look ing tor a reduction of taxes this year, but the first movement of the administration augurs poorly for such a result. One thing Is settled beyond ques tion?namely, that if any delegate, emissary or ?fflcial shall attempt to carry out such a rule as that given above Jersey City will furnish hundreds of Vvat Tylers. A 11 kkali) representative Interviewed Dr. nad den, the flrst gentleman who protested on the subject, and he declared emphatically that any mau entering his house without permission will do so at the peril of hla life. A man's house is his castle and domiciliary visits would be tolerated only under a despotism. The Doctor's sentiments are those ol mauy other citizens who were Inter viewed on the subject. Home were not disappointed, as they say that this arbitrary rule is the legitimate offspring of a government in which the people are not allowed to select the officers who administer the Subllc affairs, as Is the case In Jersey City. It may e necessary for the grand Juries and the canrts to interfere onoe more and crush, not simple corrup tion, but petty tyranny.
