Judge Davis, in passing sentence, said that he himself did not feel quite easv in his mind as to the guilt of the Erlaoner, and tor thai reason would not linoosc the ex reme punishment defined by statute. Out of re?pect for the verdict of the Jury he could not fix the lowest term, which waa seven venrs in State Prison.

COURT OF CCWON PLEAS?SEWERAL TERR. How ? DloneyLendcr Overreached Him self. Before Judge* Daly and Larrcmoro. Mr. Andrew Bowne sought a loan of #6,000 from C. B. Le Baron upon a mortgage on the premises SO* Spring street, executed by himself and his mother, she being possessed of a life estato and he of the f?e In remainder. Finally Le Baron, in August, 1870. gavo Bowne two cbeeles, one for $2,000 and another for $600, and Bowne and his mother executed a deed of tho property to Le Baron, and gave him possession. Bowne reccired the money upon the $2,000 check, but was required to endorse tho other over to Le Baron, who retained $340, ot which $290 was to be used to>pay taxes and assess ments upon the place, $S0 to pay Le Baron's lawyer, and ! $40 to cover other alleged expenses. In December Bowno tendered Le Baron $2,S00 and demanded the property, claiming that the conveyance was inadc as a mortgage, and that upon tho money being repaid in four months, with interest, the property?on whlcn Le Baron was meanwhile to collect Ihe rents?was to be deeded back. Le Baron refused, though in this way his gain wns 100 per cent, saying the property was absolutely his. Alter fruitless negotiation, Bowne, in April, 1871, brought a suit in tho Common Pleas to compel Le Baron to loosen his gripe. The following Novemtier, lust as the case was to be called tor trial, Le Baro* came to terms, aud tho suit was discontinued, on his written stipu lation to make reconveyance. Alter ho had done so, the $3,fiOO having been repaid him, it was found that the taxes and assc-snouts, contrary to his assertion, had not been paid ; but he refused to refund the $2S0 retained for such payment because not mentioned in the stipulation. Mrs. Bowne sued him for tho IWIIu the First District Court. Judge uuinn there held that m far as the subject matter of the stipulation was concerned that paper was conclusive, but that conversation, though bad before it win made, as to other matters, was admissible, and allowed evidence that Le Baron had then asserted that tho taxes were paid and that the stipulation wns thereupon mailo on that basis, and gave ludgment for Mrs. Bowne.

UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT. ^ - C'T jf*? V. ? .. Alltged Violation ot the Bankrupt Act, Before Judge Benedict. In the cato ot John Christman vs. Stephen llaynes. Judge Benedict yesterday rendered the following de cisions? The present Is a clear case. A bankrnpt, Annie Hen tall, within lour months before the tiling of a pctttiou in bankruptcy agulust Iter, suffered her property to be seized on execution by the defendant, with the Intent to give the defendant a preference over the other creditor!*. Rhe was thou insolvent, and the defendnnt hart rea-ona lie causes to believe her to be Insolvent at the time. When chargcable wit!) such knowledge he took the proceedings which resulted In a Judgment against the bankrupt, a sul> scuuent transfer to nim by the shiriff, through tlie ma chinery of a sale under his execution, of all the property of the bankrupt, to the exclusion of her other creditors. The evldeuce brings the case fully within tlio decisions of tie Circuit and Supreme Court* of the United state*, nnd entities the assignee to a judgment against the defendant for the value ot the property bo recelvod by him In fraud of the Bankrupt act. The testimony does not*how clear ly what that value is. It is at least the sum of $1,202, for toe defendant when he received the property endorsed that sum upon Ins execution. The bankrupt says it was worth more, and if sold at retail would have realized as inuoh as 92,340. But I do not feel justified upm her evidence as shegtves it to give judgment against the de fendant for the mm she states as being the value of the proporty received by hiin. Upon the evidence the judg ment against the defendant must he for $1,206, unless the plaintiff elect a rofarence, at his own expense, to take fur ther evidence as to the actual value of the property of the bankrupt taken by the Sheriff and delivered to the defendant ~ CITY COURT?SPECIAL TERM.

The Invincible (I) Philadelpltlan* Van. { quislied??'Tlie Couqnerors of the Red Stockings Ajjaiu Victorious?Phila delphia Disconsolate and Brooklyn Jubilant* The game on the Union Grounds yesterday after nooo, between the Philadelphia Club?the White Stockings?and the Atlantlcs, attracted an au dleuce of about twenty-five hundred persons. ? : more singular contest than this has not been ! witnessed by anybody for many a long day, and it j is to be hoped will not be repeated this season at least. From first to last it was full of most abomi nable plays, intermixed with others of a highly brilliant natnre. An execrabio muff was at once followed up by a magnificent piece of fielding that would instantly "bring down tho house" in tu multous rounds of applause. From the first to the eighth Inning the I'hlladelphlans maintained the lead, but, by fine batting, assisted by glaring errors on the Dtirt of too I'hlladelphlans, the Atlantlcs pulled up their score from one run at the beginning oi the seventh inulug to thirteen at the close of tho ninth, making twelve runs in three Innings. In the field all played magnificently, and all muffed most outrageously. I'carce, Deblman and Fergu son did the best batting for the Atlantlcs, while Meyerle carried off like honors for the White Stockings. Tho umpiring gave universal dissatisfaction, and the sporting men who took the long eml oi the betting?the odds were 100 to 60 In favor of Phila delphia?came away groatiy dejected and very much impoverished.

The Last of the Nominations Under the New Charter. A Brilliant Day in the City Hall?"Alter Many Daya"?Nominations for Folieo and Park Coamimonen, City Chamberlain, Com minioner of Jnrora, Inspector a of Weight! and Meaanrea and Minor Offices. SKETCHES OP THE NOMINEES The Dock Commissioners Confirmed. The political excitement about the City Hall cul minated yesterday, when the Mayor sent in the last of the batch of nomination* for city otllcers under the provisions or the new charter. The Hoard of Aldermen met at eleven o'clock, three or four hours earlier than their usual time, and for a fall hoar before they assembled the corridors were filled with Jostling, buzzing and Interested crowds cf mea. It seems that at least one-hair of the army of expectants that has camped about the wards during the past two or three weeks was not aw art that the hour of meeting was so soon alter lireaktut, for the reporter encountered scores of persons about three o'clock, who inquired of him "When docs the Board meet?hair-past three?" If all those who were desirous of being present had contrived to be among thoso who wcro there the result would have been a very large concourse of politically anxious people. There was a whole universe of "talk" going on, but It amounted to nothing. Since tho nomina tions have been under the Mayor's consideration the predictions as to who were to be the luefcy men have taken an extremely wide range, and yet they have not averaged more than one accurate prophecy out of every four candidates. Politicians and reporters have pumped every source of infor mation dry In tho endeavor to learn something as to Mayor Havemeyer's iutontlons, but the Mayor kept his own counsels to such a peculiar extent that It is sale to say that thero was not a man in New York wlio could at any time have asserted with the certainty of subsequent proof that he knew who the selected men lor even one board of appointees wore to be. Some of the most Intensely "sure things" ever whispered by a politician into a newspaper reporter's ear have been dropped confidentially Into the IIerai.d reporter's memory and have remained there with out being committed to paper, and It is fortunate that they were not written, for, like the lew "prob abilities" that were given, thoy, too, would have beon wrong. It Is now reduced to a certainty, however, who most of the appointees are, and only a few nominees remain to be confirmed, as they In all probability will be to-day, to complete the record of the "ins" and fill tho cup of misery for the "outs." immediately upon the assembling of the Board of Aldermen yesterday, all the members being present a communication from tho Mayor was received asking permission to withdraw the nomination made on Friday last of Thomas McGrath for City Marshal. The Mayor stated that it was not in any wise a reflection upon the character or ability of the nominee, but simply for the reason that his name was presented under a misapprehension The request was acceded to. On motion the Board proceeded to confirm the nominations for Dock Commissioners sent in by the Mayor on the l0th ultimo, and Jacob A. Wester velt, William Gardiner and William Budd were each confirmed by the unanimous vote of the Boq/d. The Board then proceeded to confirm the nomi nations for Citjr Marshal*, and Adolf Bernbaum Albert Weber, Levi Llppmann, John J. Murphy' William A. Hendricks, Henry Boss, Slgismund Leversou and Joseph Wallace were confirmed, to hold office for three years. ' j Christian Sutter, nominated for the omce of City Marshal, was the subject of Borne little discussion on the motion to confirm. Alderman Otj-endokfer vouched for him on the representation of personal friends who were ac. quainted with Sutter, and as soon as he had taken his scat Alderman Keitr rose slowly from his seat, and said that tho confirmation of the candidate would be neither proper nor Justifiable. He made a state ment at some length, and insisted that he was speaking from his personal knowledge of the nomi nee s character, as well as from tho rcurcsenta tiotis of friends who knew him well. presenta Aldennan \an Siiaick expressed surprise that there should be any objection to the confirmation ^T,L^r?lDnC w",?.m the Ma*or should submit to this Board. (Laughter.) After some discussion the case of Sutter was laid over by a vote ol o to 6.

The Hoard then, at a quarter past twelve, took a recess until one o'clock. After Heeeifi The Board of Aldeimen reaaaembled at one o'clock, President 8. H. H. Vance In the chulr. A communication was received from the Mayor nomi nating Joseph B. Varnum as a Commissioner of Jurors, ta place of Douglas Taylor. The Board iraa asked to lay tbe nomination upon the table, as It was an open question as to whether the appoint ment should go for confirmation to the Board of Aldermen or tne Hoard ol Supervisors. If the Com mlsslonerHhlp or Jurors be declared by the Corpo ration Council to be a county otttce, this nomination must obviously ko before the Board of Supervisors; but U It be a city omce, the Aldermen will have full power to confirm. Tbls being the present status of the controversy and the question being in the bands of the Corporation Counsel, the Mayor asked the Board to table the nomination until the legal opinion should be delivered. In another communication, the Mayor presented tne name of George W. i.anc for the ofilce of City Chamberlain. This nomination was laid upon tbe table and the communication of the Mayor ordered to be printed. Alderman Billings called for a vote npon the name of Christian Sutter, nominated for City Marshal, and declared that this caudldate was uot a tit person to hold office under the city govern ment. Several Aldermen asked that Judgement be suspended regarding the man's character, until tiicy had bad time to make further iuqulrles. The motion of Alderman Billings, to take the name from the table, was lost, and If Mr. Sutter's name Is not withdrawn before It Is again called up, there is every probability that his past character, good or bad, will then get a thorough overhauling. The Mavor. in another communication to the Board, nominated the following gentlemen for Commissioners ol the Public Parks:?l'hillp Hlssiu for, for four years, term to expire May J, 1877; lavld B. Williamson, lor three years, term to ex pire May 1, 1870; Salem H. Wales, lor two years, term to expire May 1, 1876; and Fred. K. Church, for one year, term to expire May 1, 1874. The communication took the usual course and was laid over until the uext moetlnir. The Hoard then adjourned until two o'clock tins (Tuesday) alternoon. SKETCHES (F THE NOMINEES.

THE POISONED FOOD. Dr. Harris' Theory of the Poisoning?Ha Ut-llcves It To Have Been In Corned Bref?'fhe Chemist's Statement?The Case Not Kept Secret?Who Sold the Meat 1?1 he Poisoned Servants Con* vale scent. There were no new developments in the poison* lair of the six servants in the Blatchford mansion yesterday. Whether the placing; of the poison In the food of the servants was simply an accident or was done with intent is still unknown, and as no suspicion uttucties to any one in the household It will probably remain so, as the place whence the food came has not been dlscovei ed. BTATEMENT OF Pit. IIAKHIS. Dr. Harris, tho lamiiy physiclau, states that ho miltlo no seoreoy about the atrttir iroui the flrst, but, on the contrary, told It to every one lie knew. Nor wus there any attempt on fho part of the match, ford family to keep it secret, l'rom the iirst not only he himself,.but Judge Blatchford and the faintly had all interested tliomsolves to find out how the affair had happened. All the drug stores in tho city had been visited on Thursday Inst to And out whether they bad sold any arsenic, but none had beon sold by any one of them. No traces o! any suon sale could be found. It was the same piece of corned beef that was eaten on Sunday and on Tuesday. The second time the Influence war most severe. When he visited the people on. Wednesday he thought that some of them would die, bnt on Thursday be had become satisfied that uil would go right by the influence of the drugs he administered. Tho cook was still quite sick, but would probably be up to-day (Tuesday). Margaret, the woman who had been In the lamiiy thirty-four years, had been taken away in a carriage on Mon day and would be ail right very shortly. In (act, all were convalescent, unless something very extraordinary sueuld occur. The Doctor said that tie had become convinced that the polsenlng was done by the corned beof, because the swill man, Mfller, had taken away the remain der of the beef, but nothing else irom the house, and his family, all but tho wile, who had not eaten It, had been taken sick with violent purging and vomiting. On Sunday morning he wont up in a carriage with Mrs. Blatchlord to Miller's bouse, at Ninth avenuo and seventieth street, aud had taken away the bono, with a little meat still adher ing to it, or tho corned beef, which he was certain had caused all the trouble. This had been tciven to a chemist, who was analysing it. The result will be seen In a few days. AH the other articles ol Ibod analyzed had fulled to reveal the presence of any arsenic. The faully of the Blatchfords had already suffered by the excitement attending the case, and Mrs. Biatchford was sluk in bed. The family tor a week past had been eating at the houses of friends and at restaurants. The Doctor Buid that Mr. lilatchlord was a gentleman ol almost eighty years ot age, and that his memory was very poor. He had been on the day when the meat was purchased to three grocery stores in the neighbor hood, and to Fulton and Washington Markets, but he could not recollect whero the meat was bought. He (the Doctor) had been In the morning to the three stores, but found that the corned beef had not been bought in any one of them. On Wednes day last he bad suspected one of the Inmates ol the house, and had told a detective named Frank Mclutyre to hold hlmBell In readiness on the case, 6ut that he had become satisfied on Thursduy that is suspicions "were wrong, and had not employed the detective. He had not gone to the polio*- about It because they were thick heads, who would only have mixed up the case inextricably. THE CUIMIST'S STATEMENT. Dr. Neergaard, the chemist, who does business In Broadway and Twenty-eighth street, said that on Friday Dr. Harris had come to Ids store and had asked him to examine some tea. He (the chemist) had said that he had no conveniences nor appara tus to do this, but the Doctor insisted and one of his clerks had undertaken it. No arsenic had been louud in the tea. On Sunday Dr. Harris sent the piece of corncd beef. He (Mr. Neergaard) would not undertake to analyzo tho meat for the Bame reason that he had not touched the tea. He would, however, go to Dr. Schangler, of Columbia college, and would endeavor to get him to oxwnine U analytic-lly. It would take several days to make the examination, aud then the result would prob ably be made public by Dr. Schangler. The clerk who analyzed the tea said that It Til perfectly good In every way. A gentleman familiar with the facts of the case said tuat he did not be lieve the corned beef had been poisoned at the butcher's, lor if it had the remainder of the meat In the tubweuld aiso have been infected with the poison. It might possibly have come In contact with poison in the express wagon in which It went heme, but in that case the inside nieces would net have tieeu poisoned, so that even this last suppo sition was improbable.

Joseph Waltz, in hts confession of having mur dered llulcher, the scissors grinder, states that the deed was done about ten o'clock P. M., on the 1st or May, or a little later. He went to tile room oc cupied by Hulchcr, whom no found asleep and struck him three times with the hatchet, the first time with the blunt part ami twice with the sharp side. He only groaned and all was over. Walts then took the body to the stone wall, where the traces of blood were found, and covered It up. There he left It until the noxt night, when he took it down into the orchard and bnrled It.
