Uon whether William M. Tweed shall plead or not to the batch ot fifteen indictments found against him by the late Grand Jury did not take place yesterday morning, greatly to the disappointment, doubtless, of the large crowd In attendance.

Patrick Leavy w as tried on a charge of killing his wife, the indictment against Mm tieing iunn-.lauKhP r iu tho first degree. lie was defended by Mr. Abe II. Hum mel, who put In a dctcnce ot insanity, and, as tho result proved, substantiated the defence. A look ut the pris oner was enough of itself to iustity the idea, llisdaugti ter. Mary Leavy, was the principal witness In the caw. tier statement was that she was his daughter by s pre vious marriage ; that the woman be killed was his second wife ; that on the Mb ol last September be was sent to the Lunatic Asylum on Ward's island, where lie was kept sometime und then released ; tliaf until the SOth of Sep tember he behaved rationally enough, but on tho morning ot that day, without utter, ng a word 01 re iiuin. nn provocation, he made un attack on his wife, Sarah heavy, with a handsaw fourteen iuehes In length, and with It Inflicted cuts and gashes ot such severity on her head and face as to produce death the subsequent day; that upon hearing her stepmother scream she ran to her assistance, and narrowly escaped with her life, as the prisoner turned upon her and inNlctcd two deep wounds 011 her lace und cheek with the saw, and that he had three tltucx endeavored to cause his own death bv cutting hi? throat with a razor, but was prevented by her trotn accomplishing his purpose. Drs. Dennis and Dornn, who slgne I tho certificate Upon which the prisoner wa< coin untied to the Lunatic Asylum, were examined lor the defence, md both testi fied thai they hail examined the condition ot the prison er s iuiiiiI anout a year ago. and were con vine, il at that time that he was insane; they nl?o stated that he was laboring under a continual hallucination that s >mc per son or persons hud loruu d a scheme to take his die. The case was submitted by both fides on the Judge's charge. Judge Davis charged brieflv, defining insanity and reviewing some o| the salient points ot tlie c vldcuce. Tho Jury promptly rendered a v< rdlct ot not guilty, on the grouud ? f insanity, without Ic.ivlng their seats. Upon the rendition ol the verdict Mr. Kollins, Assistant District vttoiney, tt-ked thai t!ie prisoner be reuiandi I so that some disposition might be made ot htm tor the future. Mr. Howe said that it would bo an act of nicrcy to u nd the poor immi to an asylum. Judge DavU i alie.l iu Dr. Do run and ordered an exam ination of lyeavy to bo tnade in an adioiiung room. the prisoner ami doctor retired lor the purpose. In about ten minutes the pair entered the conrt room, and the physician pronounced Leavy still insnne. An order was then issued by the Court consigning the patient to the State Lunatic Asylum at I tics. UOStCIOK IN A l.lqloR SALOON. James Lawlor, a young man, was no.\t called tip for trial, lie. is charged v ith having so iniured John Dor rington, on the tftth ot last December, In ?? liquor saloon at the corner of Washington and spring streets, that he died three weeks afterwards. The indictment against him Is manslaughter. Mr. William K. Howe appeared to defend him and Assist,iut District Attorney Kollins con ducted the prosecution. Alter a brief opening bv Mr. Kollins Alonzo Kimpatrick was called as a witness, lie testified that he went into Mr (ilm?tead's liquor saloon between four and Ave o'clock on the morning ol the lOtli ol la-t December ; as he entered tho room the deceased wus lying on the floor and the prisoner was stuiidmg over him; lie heard the deceased say, "Don't kill nic!" the prisoner got up to his feet and, being very Intoxicated, stumbled against a stove and fell, when he clutched the prisoner around the leg; the prisoner seized a pewter pitehcr froui the bar and struck three blows, one hitting the liar, the second the deceased 011 the back and the third on Ills head : alter this the pris oner got up and went out on liic street and ln\ iio?? there some ton minutes, when he was taken to the station bouse. On his cross-examination he stated that the prisoner anil dece??ed had been previously Iriends; that tlie pris oner was sober at the lime of ths difficulty between them ami the deceased very drunk, and that the vesi and shirt of the prisoner were very much torn In tlie struggle t>e tween them. . _ At this stage of the case the Court, owing to Judge Dnvls having to sit In (iencral Term, a Ijourucd till this morn ing, when tho trial will tie resumed. BUSINESS IN THE OTHER COURTS. MARINE COURT-PART I. Action for l?lbel?Definition of "Splts bube." Before Judge Curtis. Samuel Friedman vs. Louis Kink.?The plaintiff and fe/cnrisut are rival artificial flower dealers In Division street, and oclol tbla rivalry the present suit seems to Vave grown. Ths plaintiff claims that In Mav last, in a iviuc saloon ol thai neighborhood, the defeudatit malic liusly uttered of htm In thi German language, In the presence of a number of persons, the lollowlug words ? "You arc a common person, a mean man, a thlet and I can prove it," aud that in consequouce he was greatly Injured In his good uamu and crcdlt. The defendant substantially admitted the use ot the word* charmed, hut under the followlag circumstances:?He says that he Im ported trom Kurope, at considerable expense, a pat tern of flower luid, which wan delivered to one Oealricher, in Williamsburg. as a sample for the mauutacture of otbern that helore their be ing sent home the defendant visited Oestrlcher's place and surreptitiously obtained some of them, with the purpose ot imitating them, aud thai on this lact beintr communicated to delendant he, on meeting plaintiff at the saloon, accused him of it, and added that it tills was so he was a mean fellow and a "spltzhubu." 801110 considerable controversy was had as to the propor definition of this word, but it was Anally set at rest by Dr. Merkle, a gentleman thoroughly familiar with the Ocrmun aud tlie English language, being put upon the stand. According to Dr. Merkle the meaning of the word depends entirely upon tho sense In which it Is used, running all the way up the scale troui "sharpfellow" to "murderer," and touching in Its ascent upon "thief" and "robber," a colebrutod unpronounceable highwaymau of the last century having been eveu dignified by that title. The plaintiff calien h former customer to show that iniurv had been inflicted upou him. while defendant contended that the whole thing was got up to make money easy during the dulness oi trade. After the sum ming up of counsel the Court charged the Jury at length as to the law of HbeL Alter au absence ol naif an hour a verdict was returned iu plaintiff's favor tor $500. COURT OF 6EKERAL SESSIONS. "Wm" Alien Convicted and Rrmandod for Sentence?The Court Adjourns Out of Respect to the Memory of the Liate Judge Strong. At the onening of the Court yesterday ex-Judge Beach and Mr. Charles Hrookc, counsel for William Sharkey, indicted for murder 111 the ilrst degree, moved a post ponement of tku trial In consequence of important pro fessional engagements. Alter some discussion between Assistant District Attorney Russell and the counsel His Honor net the triul down lor the 27th lust. 'I he trial 01 Wesley Allen was then resumed, and. the evidence having been closed on the previous duy, Mr. Howe proceeded to address the jury, fie coutended that If the jury convicted on such slight circumstantial evi dence it would be because of their prejudice against him Iu consequence of his being previously convicted In Brooklyn. Assistant District Attorney Ktisscll followed in as an ef fective an argument as was ever made in the Uenoral Sessions, in whlcii he not only brought out all the strong circumstances established by the witnesses lor the prose cution, but in a humorous aud sarcastic strain criticised the testimony for the defence. Judge Sutherland delivered a lengthy charge, and passed upon a number of propositions which Mr. Howe requested hint to charge. The lury were absent only a short time when they returned with this verdict:? "(iullty of an attempt to commit burglary in the third de cree, after a former conviction of grand larceny as charged in the indictment." Assistant District Attorney Russell requested his Honor t<> remand Allen, as he wished to try him upon another indictment. The prisoner was remanded to prison. The Death of Judge Strong. The Assistant District Attorney then announced the deutli of ex-Judge Strong, who tor many yoars hud tilled the office of Judge of the Supreme Ceurt with great ability and probity, and moved that the Court adjourn out ot respect to his memory. Colonel Spencer eloquently seconded the motion. Judge Sutherland, in directing the Clerk to enter the motion upon the minutes of the Court, said that Judge Strong was un able Jurist, and he never had hcunl the least imputation against the purity of his character. The Court adjourned till this morning. TOMBS POLICE COURT. Robbing a Roommate. Charles Pleraou aud a man named Terence Foley were rooming together at 1,283 Broadway, and onthelltbof May Foley rose at a very early hour and left.

About half-past one yesterday the notorious so-called "Dr." Kdward M. Brown, who has already been ar raigned before Justice Dowling lor an assault committed on Sandford Murray, on the 15th of April last, was brought up agaiu to answer the direct charge of bis vic tim. whose Injuries have hitherto prevented his atten dance in Court.

Preparations for the Execution To-0?y Thc Priuoner's Calm Cheerfulness and Noble Keligious Fortitude?Affecting Scene In the Condemned Cell. Mokuiotown, N. J., May 14, 187;$. The preparations for the execution ol Luigi Luslgnani, the Italian wile murderer, have been all completed, ami everything la In read In cms ior the closing scene In the dread tragedy. The ex citement In the town 10 intense, and among all classes of people tho lntensest commisseratlon is felt lor the fate of the poor Italian. Now that his end is approaching, sympathy ia willingly extended to him, and it is generally felt that the many ex tenuating circumstances which surrounded lus crime should have lessened his puuishment and saved him lrom an ignominious death. To-day. THE I.AST DAY ON EAKTII of Luslgnani, was devoted by him to prayer and devotion. By every means in his power he strives to prepare himself for hia approach ing end, and ho liatened eagerly to the spiritual advico and consolation tendered him by Father Vassalo, an Italian priest Irom Orango, who has, since the death sentence was passed, been unremitting in his attention to his unlortunate countryman. The stories which have been published lu tho local papers about the reckless demeanor and profano language of the prisoner are nearly all incorrect, the bright at taches of the local lights, mistaking the natural gayety and llaht-heartedness of the Southern race lor uucoucern and hard-hearicdness. T1IK 8CKNE IN TUB CELL or tho Italian to-ulght was peculiarly affecting. In company with Father Vassalo the reporter of tho Hekald was permitted to have an Interview with the prisoner, and the calm resignation itud courage displayed by the latter was the theme or genoral praise. Luslgnani was dressed in deep black and wore a white rose in his buttonhole, ills iace was deadly pale, but he displayed no appearance of trepida tion and was more apparently cooler than any other person In tho cell. lie recognized the IIekald reporter, having seen him before, and warmly greeted htm. There was nothing of the bravado about Luslgnani, tils conduct being perfectly natural and self-possessed, lu answer to a question from the reporter ho stated that he was , PERFECTLY RECONCILED TO DIE nnd nad no rear of the future. While saving this he grasped the hand ol Father Vassalo'aud ex claimed, "No one who is a good Catholic is alraiu to dlu." He then stated that the stories which had been published about him in the local papers were entirely false; that he had indulged in 110 pro ranity, and never had any intention or starving liitnseir to death. Tho only objection he made to his food was on last Friday morning, when he objected to eating the half-cooked meat which was set before him. He very naturally reluses to eat the prisou lare so long as he has the opportunity of partaking of the more dainty viands which are freely provided for hhn. This morning Father Vassalo, on visiting the prison, asked Luslgnani what lie would like to cat, and lie replied that he wished to have some Italian soup and beefsteak, which were provided for film, lie ate sparingly, but he was considerably refreshed and talked cheerfully with the persons' who came to visit him. When the reporter was bidding Luslgnani good night the latter was VISIBLY AFFECTED but Showed no signs of .shrinking. Father Vassalo and Father Ifoualdo will remain in the cell with the prisoner all through the night. The last unices of the Church will be administered about nine o'clock 111 the morning, and the prisoner will lie escorted to the scaffold by Father Vassalo and the pastor of the parish. The gallows is erected right in the rear of the prisoner's cell, but a screen conceals it Irom his view. Tho Court House in tho morning will be sur rounded with special constables, and no person who is not provided with a pass will be admitted. About one hundred and twenty-five passes have been issued, but applications by tho thousand have been made, which the Sheriff haa been, of course, compelled to refuse. The execution will take place at eleven o'clock, and, when life Is extinct the body will be cut down aud Interred in the Catholic graveyard. TREMBLING IN THE BALANCE. Argument la the Case of Nixon Tester, day In the Supreme Court, Vcnrral Term?A Decision To Be Given This Morning?Resignation and Demeanor of the Condemned Mail?His Spiritual Attendants?The Preparations fbr His Expected Execution. Nixon's Indefatigably laithrul and persevering counsel, Mr. William F. Howe, is still using his utmost endeavors to obtain for his client a length ened lease oi lire. With this view he made appll cation yesterday before the Supreme Court, General Term, Judges Ingraliam and Davis on the bench, for a hearing in the case. Judge Ingraham said that ir the Intention was to apply for a stay of proceedings the Court could not entertain such application, but that if it was the desire of Mr. Howe to argue the case upon excep tions taken at the trial they would hear the argu ment upon a writ of error. Mr. A. II. Hummel, the associate of Mr. Howe, upon this announcement, accompanied by Mr. Lyons, Assistant District Attorney, at once went beloro Judire. Fancher, sitting In Supreme Court, Chambers, and upon stating the case to the latter Judge he promptly granted a writ of error, Mr. Lyons meantime having moved the preliminary notice usually required in such cases. Mr. Howe announced to the Court the procure ment of the writ of error aud thereupon the Court anil certainly It would seem an act of verv kind consideration under the circumstances-suspended all other business before it aim listened to Mr. Howe s argument. He spoke at great length and most ably ami ieellngl.y. rue points of Ins argu ment were the same, tiiougli elaborated at more e.oqueut length, as 111 his argument before Judire llarrett, which was published in lull iu the IIekald. his exceptions, it will be remembered, were ilrst to the panel; second, to a portion of the evi dence, and third, to the reiusal of Judge Mr nly to charge one of his requests bearing unon the question of doubt as to auy specific facts In the course of his remarks, however, he paid a hhrh compliment to Judge Brad*, and said that no man ever received a fairer trial than that given to Nixon. In connection with his own points he also submitted tnosc given by ox-Major A Oakev Hall in his argument before Judge i'rau*of Brooklyn, which points have likewise beeu t ub. Iislicd in lull in the IIekalp. Tne legal ub'Iiiy di? P'M1} m?86 1 ?lnIS', ( 0U"I not lie gain s&nnssr srsjtaetBSist isaw'i! Mr. Lyons pursued the same line or argument is in his response to Mr. Howe before JudireBarrett At tte conclusion 01 the argument Judge 1 ngra ham saliI that they would give their decisionals morning. l"'3 APPLICATION TO OTHER JI DOE3.

There were present Presi dent lTofessor Chandler, in the chair; Dr. Vander poel. Health Officer or the Port; Dr. Stephen Smith, and Commissioner llenry Smith, President of the Board of Police. After a few moment* were spent in friendly converse the members took their seats and the regular business of the department was proceeded with. Some minor matters being dis posed of the following resolutions were passed :? TI1K NEW REGULATIONS.

TTpen the conclusion of this business Colonel Clarke, the Secretary, was confirmed in his posi tion. Nothing was said of Sanitary Superintendent because i>r. Janes Is to continue in that place, Captain Crlswold is also to retain IiIb posltlou in the Sanitary Bureau. The only changes at present contemplated direct themselves towards the De partment of Records aud some minor officials ol the Health Department. One or the most striking c haracteristics of tke new Board Is its strong con trast to the old one. The members present a l steudv, business air, and go about the work as if they meant what they were at. Each man thor oughly understands the subject of hygiene, and brings to the Board mature knowledge and a practice refined by experience. The low comedy business nas disappeared with the rotten and cumbersome old institution, and laugh ter during the deliberations of the Board is an ele ment that seems likely to bo eliminated by the gentlemen now entrusted with the care ol the city's health. It appear sad that the chair of so clever an acrobat and pantomlmlst as Mr. Manierre should be left without even a gi imace to tickle Its elbows, but such evidently is the terrible and drearv fate awaiting it. The quips aud Jibes of the Presidential Dogberry will lie lamentably missed; bur In view or the additional amount, of serious benefit the people will be treated to, tho calamity can be sustained. YACHTING. Launch of the Schooner Yacht Ariel?Her Dimension* and Accommodation*. The handsome schooner yacht Ariel, built by Messrs. l'oillon Brothers, foot of Bridge street, Brooklyn, for Commodore William L. Swan, of the Seawanhaka Yacht Club, was successfully launched yesterday morning in the presence or a large num ber or delighted spectators. By ten o'clock tho workmen of the yard stood in readiness to com mence knocking away the shores; but the word to tiegln this preliminary business was not passed until several minutes later, when, being continued with alacrity, the gallant, eraft, amul a prolonged shout rrom those on board, gracefully dipped to her proper element at eighteen minutes ol eleven o'clock, a lrlend of the owner naming her at the opportune moment. It will be remembered that the Ariel was con structed after tho model of tne schooner yacht Clio, built at the same yard this season for Messrs. Asten .V Bradhurst, and there Is every reason to believe that she will possess all that Mr. Swan de sires?speed and weatherly qualities. Although before published in the Herald, It is not uow amiss to give the dimensions or this yacht, which are as follows;?Length of keel, 62 feet; lcntrth on water line. 67 foet 0 Inches; length on deck. 62 feet; length over all, "0 feet; breadth of beam, 18 leet 7 Inches; depth of hold. 6 feet. I he frame Is of white oak and hackmatack, the planking ol oak and the deck of white pine. All the materials used In her construction are of the best possible kind, and much heavier than Is usually put, in pleasure vessels of her class. The Ariel Is so far finished that it wtll require but a fortnight or three weeks to complete her, when it Is the Inteutlon of her owner to have a little trial sail with tho Clio, Just to ascertain how matters work. The di mensions of the spars are as follows:?Foremast, 68 feet; mainmast, tw feet; lorctopmast, 28 feet; maintopmast, aoieet; malnboom,45 feet.; foreboom, ID feet 0 Inches; malngaif, 26 foet; foregaiT. l# leet; ilylng jlbboom, 12 leet; bowsprit, outboard, 20 leet. Much of the interior Joiner work Is in position, and, therefore, au Idea can he lormed or lis char actor. Evidently the yacht will be elegantly fln isned throughout. There will be three staterooms with hardwood trimmings, which will He uphol stered it: the prettiest lmairlnable taste. The saloon will also be in hardwood finish and fitted in tne best possible style, while the accommodations for officers and mc'n will not be Inierlor to any boat of her size In these waters. The Ariel, It Is understood, will be added to the New YorK and Atlantic Client Club fleets, and, no doubt, will eon tend for tho prlzo or her class in the coming re gattas or these organizations. nayonnc Yacht Clnh.
