Old Dr. Brown, w^io some time since committed tho murderous assault ou Sandford K.

Be was found guilty upon both counts in the indict ment?on assault with intent to rob and on assault ?rlrh intent to kill. He was remanded for sentence till next Monday. In the Supreme Court, General Term, Judges In graham and Brady on the bcnch, a decision was rendered yesterday in the case of David Murphy, couvlcted some thirteen months ago of the murder jof David Barry and sentenced to be hanged. The Court refuses to interfere with the verdict of tho Jower Court, but both Judges declare the circum stances of the case to be such as strongly to rec ommend the interposition of Executive clemency In Murphy's oehalf. Patrick Powers, boatswain of the Bteamer On tario, was yesterday committed by Commissioner Shields, in default of $1,000 bail, on a charge of paving badly crushed the hand and arm of Frank ^llver, a sailor, by a blow of a crowbar while the Rressel was off St. Thomas, on the 14tn Inst.

United States Commissioner Joseph Gutman yes terday rendered the subjoined decision in the case Of George McDonnell, the alleged forger on the BanK or England, for whose extrudltion the Brit ish government has made a demand upon the United States. It will be seen that the decision Is ftd verse to the prisoner:? THE DECISION. In statin? the conclusion to w hich I am led by the evi Bciu'f in the investigation, it is unnecessary tor me to discuss again the competency of the testimony. it was earetully welshed bv mo, anil my views thereon given, ?- it was arranged piece by piece by the counsel con ducting 'he prosecution, ana contested fragment by i fragment by the counsel lor the accused with nil the in exhaustible fertility ot legal resource tor "hic.li he is fLiatinguished. on a thorough re-exam illation of nil the egal doidIs raised in that behalf, 1 tlud no reason to Change my views us heretolore expressed, and I think Vial a wider scope of objection has been allowed bv me to the dclence in thlR case than has probably been here totore permitted in Kindred canes. There were, however, advanced bv the learned coun sel for the accused, on the cUksc of the teatimoav, three legal propositions upon which his discharge is claimed, and it is proper that these should lie disposed ol by me ?before addressing mvaelf to the question ol alleged crimi nality as upon the evidence. The lirst ol these is that there is a want of iurisdlction ?ver the person owing to what is termed the Illegality of tlic arrest. This subject was thoroughly discussed and massed upon bv me on n motion made ai an earlier stage fof the proceedings. I see ne ground now for receding from the rule then asserted bv me. The next claim made was that all the duties required ?f the government had been perionued under a former ?nandafe Issued on the 13th ol March, and all the powers exhausted thereunder, auil that there was no right In the government to issue the record mandate while the accused was in custody under the previous mandate Charging the same offence. The reply to this isKirst, the accused is not held by ?virtue ol the mandate, but under the warrant; second, ?1 le issuance of the mandate i* the performance of a po litical act by the Executive, which the Commissioner This no authority to review, question or impeach; and, third, the seconil inundate was not issued tor tiie same Charge'or offence, but upon oiher and distinct charges; anil, again, there tan be no < onceivalne reason lor as Burning a restriction upon the Executive s issuing as many inundates as mav be deemeii expedient. The third legal proposition stated l>v the learned conn acl is that the depositions offered in evidence an not Competent for any purpose herein, because upon their face they purport to emanate trotii n magistrate ol lim ited and special jurisdiclK.il, and there is no proof before the Commissioner of his jurisdiction. It Ls sufficient to nav in this regard thai by the provislous of the act of Au gust 22, i860, it is declared that ull such documents as jlhose introduced shall lie admitted and received in evi dence if properly ami legally authenticated, so as to entitle them to lie received lor similar purposes by the tribunals of the foreign coun try from which the accused party shall liava Escaped; and the certificate of the principal diplomatic or consular officer of the United States rosi (dent In such foreign countries is to determine whether audi documents are so authenticated. The sole question. Itherelore, Ls, Are the papers authenticated In conformity to the requirements ot the act? aud the answer is the Certificate of the United States Minister resident at Lou don, which states that they un and cuch of them Is properly and legally authenticated so as to entitle them and each of them to be received for similar purposes by the tribunals of the United Kingdom of <;reat Hritain and Ireland, and so us to untitle them aad each of tliein to be received by the tribunals oi the said kingdom as evidence ol the crimln ilit} of, Ac., inn ntioning the par tics named In the pa|icr). I come now to the question as to whether in my opinion the charges set forth in ih ? warrant and coinnluim are Sustained by the evidence, ami m view ol the earnestness ?witii which the counsei lor the accused hn? throughout tiic entire proceeding* contended that the e vide no ad duced, in order to hold him thereunder, must be *u< li as Would ensure a conviction If hi- w< re on trial I refer to the act of August li, IW, and briefly quote ir.,m the opinion of His Honor Judge Kiatchlord in the Fares ex ?tradition caw, Section 7 ot the act of August 12, IfMK, provides that the delivery to the demanding government fliull be '-upon such evidence of criminality as, accord ng to the laws of the place where the fugitive or person so charged shall be found, would justify hts ap prehension and commitment tor trial if the crime and nffedee had there been committed." The learned judue tn the Far ex case, alter citing Chief Justice Marshall to tic same purport, says ?"To say that tlia evidence must tie such as to reoulra the conviction of the prisoner if he "Were on trial lierore a petit jury would. If applied to cases ?t extradition, work great imustice. The theory on ?Which treaties tor extradition are made is. that the place ?Where a crime was committed is the proper place in Which to try the person charged with navlng commit ted It; an I nothing is required to warrant extra dition except that sufficient evidence of the fact Df the commission ot the crime shall be produced to Justify a commitment lor trial tor the i:riuii*. This is the e?tal> aislied rule as to the evidence in extradition cases. I ain not u^a.. what would be the effect of the evidence wi re th accused out rial, tint to ascertain If It is ,.t such a ebi.rai ter as should ensure his commitment for a trial on the merits, and applying this rule to this case, after a *erv nsreftil and earnest examination ind consideration Of the IfliMa 1 arrive at the conclusion ibut the docu mentary ami other proofs introduced before me are sufficient to establish ami sustain the charges set forth in the warrant. The accused therefore. committed to the custody of the United State. Marshal of the Southern X>!-trlct of New York, to awnitthe action of the proper authorities. TRIAL OF DE. BROWN. Viae Assault an Gas Collector nrrny Statement of tlae Affair as Told by * Hurray and the Doctor's Version?The Matter's Itarrafivr Too Attenuated and a Verdict of Guilty Rendered Against Ulna. The pubtK have not yet forgotten tile particulars Of the murderous assuuit committed on the 15th of last month on Hand lord E. Murray, Collector of the H'tr York Gat Company, by "Dr." K. M. Brown, at Ihu lat, tor's tio-calied medical dispensary. at 261 William street- The prisoner yesterdsy brought up ftr trial In the Caurt of flyer and Ter miner before Judge Davit. In liis caae the raspcct due ta agv* toftJUkS tulr?,wtw mating, Thtua.jrap. something altogether too repulsively forbidding in his expression to elicit any feeling of sympathy. His previous record?haying spent a term In State Prison upon a charge of causing the death of a young lady through an abortion?did not help him any, and the facts of the assault on Mr. Murray, as detailed at tbe time, were of a character leaving no question of a doubt as to his being guilty of the grave charge preferred against him. On bis head were still visible marks of the punish ment he received at the hands of bin intended victim at tne time of the assault. Mr. Murray was also present in court, and the only surprise was, considering the extent aud nature ol his injuries, that his ltie bad ever been spared to tell the tale. Ho is by no means, however, entirely recovered yet, and still has to have his wounds bandaged. There were two counts against the Doctor?one of felonious assault with intent to rob, and the other of felonious assault with intent to kill. Mr. Russell, Assistant District Attorney, briefly opened the case to the Jury, and then called on Mr. Murray as the first witness. The latter testified that on the 15th of last April he called at Dr. Brown's office, 261 William street, to collect a gas bill, and as he had rat down to make change of a $20 bill the Doctor made an assault on him with a hatchet and struck him twice on the head. Jump ing to his feet he seized the hatchet from bis as sailant, and, after a short struggle, overpowered htm and knocked him over on the floor. He had over live hundred dollars with him at the time. Mr. Muliley, the landlord of tbe house in which the alTalr occurred, testified that he met Murray as he came in, and wont up stairs to get money to pay his own bill; upon his coming down he found the room of Dr. Brown loeked uud heard a row inside, w inch ended In the door being broken open, disclosing the Doctor on the floor and the com plainant standing over 1dm; the latter said that the Doctor had tried to murder him. Officer Harris, of the Fourth precinct, testified to arresting the prisoner and taking him to the sta tion house; both parties were subsequently cou veyed to the hospital and their wounds dressed; he identified a hatchet and another instrument or assault?a slwrt handle, with a two-edged knife blade fastened to the end of it?as having been in the doctor's room alter the assault. Dr. John A. Brady testified that he attended upon Mr. Murray at Ids orother-iti-law's house; he de scribed the wounds on his head; one of them ou the back of the head was two aud three-quarters of an inch in depth and was a very dangerous wound. The above closed the testimony for the prosecu tion. Alter which Mr. George O. Mott, counsel for the prisoner, opened the case on his side and then called as the only witness for the delence the pris oner himself. He testified that he was born October 2, 1802, and bad been a practising physi cian in this city lor about twenty years; he treated all sorts of disease at bis dispensary. About three o'clock In tne afternoon of the 16th of last April a man whom he had never seen before called at Ills office Tor medical advice; he was busy compound ing medicines and had not time to attend to him just then; In a few moments there was a rap at the door and this stranger said, "Doctor, I don't want anybody to see me; can you put me in a private room?" be told him to get behind a tall desk and then opened the door, when Mr. Murray came in; shook hands with Mr. Murray, they always having been on friendly terms, and said, "1 suppose you have come alter your gas bill;" Mr. Murray said he had, and there upon Tie went into a back room to get some money and as he re-entered the room he saw the stranger strike Murray twice on the head with something that looked like a tomahawk; lie at once snatched a hatchet from a kindling-wood box and knocked tbe weapon out of the man's hand; the latter at once made his escape from the room; Mr. Murray turned on him and struck him on the head, leiling him to tbe floor; kept telling blm that it was not he w ho had assaulted him, but another man. This story, he said, was the truth, as God was his judge. On his cross-examination he did not deviate from this story. He asserted his Innocence of the charge upon which he bad spent a term in State Prison. The opposing counsel briefly summed up, when the Judge charged thn. jury. After a few moments' consultation the foreman announced that they stood eleven for conviction of felonioas assault with Intent to rob, and one lor conviction of felonious assault with intent to kill. The Judge said they must agree upon a verdict, although the penalty was the same In each case, aud thereupon they retired, and, after an absence ol forty minutes, returned with a verdict of guilty. Mr. Mott suggested that this verdict was not sufficiently specific. Judge Davis said that it was not ncoessary to be more specific, as it was general and covered both counts. The prisoner was remanded till Monday for sentence. He took the matter evidently very coolly, and manliested no feeling as to the result. CASE OF DAVID MURPHY. Decision Upon the Appeal from the Ver dict of Murder In the First Degrer? Affirmation of the Verdict t>y the Supreme Court, General Term?Recom mendation of Executive Clemency. It is unnecessary to recite the particulars of the shooting and killing of David Barry by David Mur phy in April of last year. As Is well known, lie was tried in the Court of General Sessions before Judge Bedford, convicted of murder in the first degree and sentenced to be hanged. The circumstances were of that peculiarly extenuating character that his counsel, Mr. William F. Howe, appealed from the verdict to the Supreme Court, General Term. The appeal was argued several days ago, before Judges Ingraham and Brady, on the case itself, wnhout any exceptions, the circumstances being that Barry assaulted the prisoner in a drinking saloon and then went out, followed by the prisoner, who shot him. Tlie | General Term yesterday rendered a decision in the case, affirming" the Judgment of the Court below, both Judges delivering opinions. Judge Ingraham states that the Court cannot interfere with the verdict, there being some evidence to support It; but he most certainly, notwithstanding the affirmation of judgment, takes a most charitable view of the case, ah he concludes bis opinion as follows:? "While we think there Is nothing in the case to jus tify this Court in reviewing the judgment, we feel bound to say that we think the clemency of the Executive may be properly exercised In commut ing the sentence to such lesser degree as shall be thought proper ou a review of the evidence." Judge Brady also coucurs with the presiding Justice in Ins conclusions of law, but Is frank to confess that while the testimony shows that a grave assault had been committed on the prisoner, raising doubts as to whether he had time to cooi l>efore committing the deed, he thinks that the offence might be more properly callod manslaughter in the third degree. BUSINESS IN THE OTHER COURTS. MITED STATES CIRCUIT COURT. Ju<>ffD Benedict sat In the United States Circuit Court yesterday and proceeded wltli the disposal of the criminal business. Quashing Indictments. Tho Judge announced that, with respect to the Indictment apalnst Christian Zetta, he would grant the motion to quash It on the ground that three of the lour counts did not charge any offence, and, with respect to the fourth count, there was strong presumption that it did not contain an allegation oi any crime. The Indictment must, therefore, be quashed In its present lorm. In the case of Oscar F. Walnwrlght, who had been Indicted for presenting a false and forged paper to a United States oiilcer, Mr. Samuel O. i Courtney, prisoner's counsel, had made a motion > j to quasu the indictment. The prisoner, it wits al- 1 | le>{ed, was accused ol making a mine, forged and ! counterfeit paper, and presenting it to the District i Attorney lor the purpose oi Hatisiylng that official ! that he was good and sufficient i>ail. The Judge I grunted the motion to quash. It appeared that I the paper presented to the District Attorney was a genuine one, nut that its contents were not true. I The Court ruled, under the statute, that the words I "ialse, forged and counterfeit" were synonymous, , and that, therefore, "(aloe" meant "forged and counterfeit.'* W .tin wright Is in prison, and It Is understood that another charge or indictment for alleged per jury will be preiurrod ugiuust him. Atlantic Hank Defalcation?The Case of Talntor. Mr. John K. lturnll, counsel for Talntor, who is indicted for embez/.mg |4is),000, the property ut/ the Atlantic National Ham, said that ho owed It to the Court, as a matter or good faith, to have a day fixed for the trial. As the motion to quash the In dictment was still under the consideration of the Court, he supposed it would not be possible to go U> trial with the case on Monday. Mr. Itliss, United Mates District Attorney, hav ing made some remarks In reply, stated tuat he would give Mr. Uurrill a bill of particulars in hall an hour, and that if he did not deem the particu lars full enough he might ask, by affidavit, lor fuller details, on the understanding that before making aay request of that kind he should send copies of the aflldav its to the District Attorney. The matter then dropped. Sending Ottscene Literature Through the Mall*?Conviction. Juiots Sullivan was put upon his trial for sending obscene literature through the malls. He was c<m vlcted and sentenced to one year's imprisonment and a flue of $500. Tlie Argument Calendar. Judge Km alley will call the argument calendar in* this court on Tuesday next.

The sudden rise m the thermometer and conse quent discomforts of a crowded court room did uui iu*yuu)* 4m ujuiiii large (Urojur tram ""^m' l'rur yesterday to witness the proceedings In the Conrt of Oyer and Terminer, before Judge Davis. BOW A WIFB'8 LIKE WAS SATED. James Byrnes was tried on a charge of felonious assault with Intent to kill Loots Rockwell. The evidence snowed that on the 11th of last May the Srisoner was In his own house with his wife anil ockwell. The latter owed Mrs. Byrnes sohio monev, and was cautioned not to pay the money to her hushand, as Bhe had had an altercation with him. This enraged Byrnes, and, drawing a pistol, he fired at his wife, but, in his frenzy, he failed o' his mark, and the ball uniortunately hit Rockwell. The defence was that he was showing the pistol and it went otT accidentally. Mr. Nolan, the counsel for the prisone r, endeavored to infuse a good deal of merriment into the case through his peculiar manner oi conducting it; l>ut the jury, as t e result proved, took a sober view of the matter, and brought iu a verdict ?f guilty. Judge Davis sent the prisoner to State Prison for five years. The prisoner was by no means satisfied. As he started to go away under the escort of an officer he tirnea to the Judge and said, "You cutthroat, you brought me to this." Arraignments and Pleas. Absut twenty prisoners were arraigned to plead to the various Indictments brought in against them by the present Grand Jurv. All plead not guilty except Richard Connor, a youth, who plead guilty to larceny from the person in snatching a pocketbook from the hands of a lady. He was sent to the Rouse sf Refuge. The others were re manded for trial. SUPREME COURT?GENERAL TERM. Decisions. By Judges Ingraham and Brady. Fearing el al. vs. Royston.?Order reversed, with $10 costs. Opinion by Judge Ingraham.

The action is brought by the husband for loss o( services and the cost ol medical attendants. Ac.. damages being laid at $1,000, the jurisdiction ol the Court. The physicians called testified that it was doubtful if the lady would ever entirely recover. Kvldence was given to show the unsaie condition of the doors belore tlie time of the action. Defendant's counsel sought to show a contract, with one of the tenanis to keep the doors in repair, which was dis allowed. Deiendaut testitled Uiat lie had the doors repaired from tune to time, as be heard of their needing it, nnd also to there being a bar made for the door, which was lound immediately alter the accldent-ln the back or the cellar, and which was lettoutou this occasion through neglect of some of the tenants using the cellar. It was also showed that with this bar in the doors were comparatively safe. Defendant's counsel claimed that these doors, being within the space allotted for areas, could not be looked upon as the highway, and thereiore de fendant was not liable. The Court charged the jary that this being to ail appearance a part of the sidewalk the defendant was bound to keep it In a perlectly safe condition, or put guards around It in case of any danger.

Assistant District Attorney Levi Farron ap peared in Court yesterday to oppose the admission to ball of the desperate burglar, who was captured after a deadly struggle In the residence of Mr, Dingee, corner of M.v'rtlo and Clinton avenues. Counsellor Kldgeway asked that McHalplne be re leased on ball pending the examination before Jus tice Riley. Mr. Farron stated that the prisoner's real name was McCormack, and that he had already served two terms in State prison, from which Institution he was discharged a lew months since. Mr. Farron contended that as a rule Courts would not admit to ball parties eliarged with a felony. Councsellor Rldgeway cited the cases or Dr. Look up Evans and William M. Tweed, who were ac cused o! felonies, but who were admitted to bail. Judge McCue lemarked that the only question in the present case was whether to exercise such a discretion, if it was a fact that McHalplne had al ready served two terms in the State Prison he (Judge McCue) thought the jail was the only place for him. The prisoner, interrupting the proceedings, said, "I deny the statemeut, sir. I'm not the kind oi a man thev try to.niake me out." Judge McCue intimated that if there were any doubt about it he would allow Mr. Farron a reason able time to prove the truti of his assertions. The case was then adjourned until Monday morn ing, the prisoner being remanded. |Yesterday'a Decisions.

The excitement that has bo long prevailed in the neighborhood of the City nail among local politi cian^ was transferred to the Central Police Office yesterday. From an early hour In the morning crowds of hangers-on and followers gathered in the vicinity of the building. The cause of the unusual interest to many men was the expectation that the new Board would organize at an early hour and proceed at once with the busi ness of making vacancies and appointments. It had been rumored that the movements oi the Com missioners were clogged by legal difficulties ami as soon as these wire cleared awav the business of getting into shape would be at once undertaken. These sensational stones only served to keep the office-seekers in subjects of conversation. They had no foundation what ever in lact. and only readied the ears ol the Com missioners when they had gone the rounds or the i cliques. One of the tales was to the eirect that Mr. Henry Smith was In some difficulty about the presidency ami there was uneasiness In the Board about the matter. Among Til ? COMMISfllONKKS THEMSELVES there was no suspicion of anything of this kind. They made up their minds to clect him their presi dent, and carried out the intention last evening, it was done not ouly as a imirk of recognition | for his long service but as a demonstration or ! the opinion of the Board as to his capability to flu I the place. Mr. Smith did not seek the chair, be cause the duties ol the position are very arduous and keep him almost constantly iti the city. He seemed pleased, however, with this notion of the other commissioners, and the Hoard entered npon Its term of office last evening amid the most cordial good feellnir all round, ihis augurs well for the future, and will, no doubt, tie productive of much good, commissioner Oliver Chariick was made Treasurer, and the other Commis sioners were then allotted their places In the bnllding. Commissioner Hugh Uardner will occupy the room just, vacated by Mr. Manlerre. Commissioner Russell uikes the one between it and that iormerly occupied by Judttc Bosworth, and General Ouryee will use the room from which Judge Bosworth so reluctantly retired. THE ORRAT QtTSSTION of the hour, after the announcement that the Presi dent was chosen, was the Superintendent. Friends an 1 partisans of each of the applicants lor the of fice talked loudly in support ol their candidates, ami but few seemed to know with any certainty who the coming man would t>e. It was well un derstood Mr. Kelso would be dismissed, for he had been requested to resign the day previous, and the man who was to succeed him was the one all eyes were settled on. Inspector Walling had hosts of admirers, and evidently stood well with the public, but Mayor Havemeyer was on the side of Mr. George W. Matsell, and he was appointed to the place. The information of the choice spread rapidly, and Mr. Matsell's friends as sembled in force to congratulate him. Superin tendent Kelso very graciously and politely oon dnctcd his successor to the chair of office and con gratulated him warmly upon his good fortune ami sur?esB. Theso kindly offices were but coldly received by Mr. Matsell, and his man ner In receiving them was anything lint attractive to a stranger. The ffcet that Superin tendent Kelao was dismissed ayd Suwerintemiwit , Mataell pat back Into bin old place was at once telegraphed to the precincts all over the city, and at six o'clock the new regime was In full sway. Weepy sergeants and lounging roundsmen bad bet ter look out now. New brooms have a reputation all their own and there Is very probably a good deal of changing to be dune the next couple of week*. AFFAIRS AT THE CITY HALL Tlw Late "Army of Occupation" Recon noitring the New Department*?Mr. Church ReqaeiU the Withdrawal ot Hla Nomination?The Case of Cornelias Farley Under Investigation. The City Hall was intensely dull yesterday. There was no meeting of either branch of the Common Council, no nominations made, very few talked about, and, In fact, very few people looking for them. All the interest appears to bp centred in the Commissions Just organized or in process of organization, and the small-fry politicians have, as a body, flitted away to Police Headquarters, Firemen's Hall, the Board of Health and the Commissioners of Charities and Correction. A few men lingered listlessly in the corridors and lounged about the Mayor's offices. Some of them wanted to see the Mayor and some didn't. A few of the Aldermen were about and one or two of the new Commissioners. The most interesting item of news prevailing was the fact that the Mayor received yesterday morning a letter written by Mr. Frederick E. Church to a friend, in which the writer requested his friend to call upon tlis Honor aud request the withdrawal op mk. ciii'Rcu's name as a nominee lor Commissioner of the Department or Parks, nils action on the part ot Mr. Church Is unquestionably prompted by the fact that Ills nom ination had beeu discussed tn so very unseemly a manner by certain members of the Hoard of Aldermen on Thursday. Mr. Church Is the famons landscape painter, aud resides principally at Hudson, Columbia county. The office or Park Commissioner is not a salaried position, but some of the members of the Hoard of Aldermen made quite a tough onslaught on the nominee, on the ground that he was not a resident of tins city, and that interests so especially dear to New Yorkers and the subject 01 so much pride to the city should be entrusted to a resident who would be able and willllug to devote the necessary time and atieution to the duties of the office. Had it not been lor the strenuous efforts of some of tne kindly disposed members of tne Board Mr. Church's name would probably have been rejected, but THIS NEEDLESS AFFKONT to a worthy gentleman was happily averted. The Mayor was not prepared to stute exactly what ac tion he would take in regard to the letter, but there is no doubt that he will, at the meeting of the Aldermen on Thursday next, ask leave to with draw trie nomination and that his request will be acceded to by the Hoard. Mr. Wilder, the Mayor's private secretary, yester day heard statements in reference to the charges against Cornelius Farley, candidate for re-appoint ment as city marshal. Farley's nomination has beeu coullrmed by the Board ot Aldermen, but in consequence of a complaint made against him on affidavit the Mayor withheld the issuance of Far ley's warrant. THE CIIAROE AOAIN3T HIM Is that in January last, while in the discbarge of his duty, alter arresting a defendant on civil process, he ottered to allow his prisoner to go t? any hotel he chose lor the night on condition that the prisoner would give him $60 for his indulgence and pay expenses for the two at the hotel selected. Tne party had only $10 about him aud offered that, but his tender was spurned with indignation and the rates were lowered to $23. The individual in custody found a friend who loaned him the desired $13, and Mr. Farley, as is alleged, was paid his demand. on a subsequent occasion Farley arrested the same gentleman on another process in the same trans action, and being unable to meet the lees, he was locked up and subsequently released on $600 bonds. According to the statement of the com plainant Farley took possession of the bonds, and upon the order of the Court setting aside the bonds the complainant called ou Mr. Farley to obtain them, andasked for the $400, which was directed to be returned. Farley abused him severely, so he says, and used the most ln>lecent language tow ards mm, aud he had some trouble in obtaining the restoration of his bonds. As it appears, Far ley had constituted himself the custodiau of tbe bonds instead of paying them into Court. MARSHAL FARLEY'S I)KKENCK is made up of "pooh-poohs,'' denials, shakes of the head and "explanations." Tne Mayor holds the case under consideration. There is no doubt that Farley's case Is uot the only one that ought to be inquired into before the warrants are issued, as the power vested in a city marshal is a very arbi trary one and is often outrageously exerted. A delegation of city officials from Boston called upon the Mayor yesterday to make some lnqulrlos m reference to the operation of the new charter and other affairs pertaining to the municipal gov ernment. They were, of course, courteously re ceived, and the Mayor gave them the information sought, after which they proceeded to visit some of the departments. MARRIAGES AND DEATHS. Married.
