UNITED STATES CIRCUIT COURT. The Hank of Kngland Forgery?The Case of George McDonnell?Important Deci sion by Judge Woodruff?The Prltoner Kemlttrd to the Custody of the Marshal ami Confined In Castle Pinekney. Yesterday ihe case of George McDonnell, who Is charged with complicity in the alleged forgeries upon - the Bank of Eugland, and for whose extradition to Lon- j don to tie there tried apou that charge, a warrant of commitment has been made out by Commissioner Out- ? man. cania before the United States Circuit Court, Judges Woodruff and Blatclilord presiding. Counsel for the prisoner liaJ, as already stated in the Hkbalp, sued out writs of habeas corpus and certiorari for the purpose of redwing the proceedings had before Mr. Outman. | It must have leaked out in some manner that the conn sol inr the prosecution would not be called on to reply to the argument of Mr. Brooke and thatthe Court, on taking its place on the bench, would deliver its declsiou, for Mr. Judson ilarvU and a posse of deputies from the Sheriff's office were in attendance, evidently with the object of hearing what decision might be arrived at, as Judge Kancheir, of the Supreme Court, is to hear an argument lietbrc him on a writ of liabcus corpus sued out by the prisoner. Mr. C. A. Seward and Mr. C. M. Da Costa appeared as counsel tor the Hank of England. Mr. P. F. Morbury for ( the British government and Mr. Brooke aud Colonel Pel- ! lows tor the prisoner. At half-past ten o'clock the Judges came into Coort; and while the shorthand writers were expecting counsel ' ior the prosecution to rise and proceed with his argu- i nient, Judge Woodruff began to deliver his opinion on the CHi?e. Below we give the main points of it. TIIK HKCISION. Judge Woodruff, In delivering the opinion of the Court, observed that the question they had to determine was a nave one, and they had considered all that seemed to I theui ncessarv to arrive at a right conclusion upon the question* involved, liuving due regard to the rights of the citizen and proper r sped lor the foreign government making theslemand lor extradition ot the prisoner and tlic gunil laltli thai belonged to the government of the United States in the execution of the treaty. The result was that they did not think it necessary to hear counsel lor the prosecution on the question ot law and ot tact, which had been discussed by the prisoner's counsel. Nor did they think it necessary on those questions to consider the grounds on which the Court was moved, on the part o; the prosecution, to quash the writ of rrrtimari. The conclusions reached on the points submitted on hchalt of the prisoner rendered It unnecessary to say anythuv In reference to THK POWKlt or TH* COCBT to issue a writ of certiorari lu a case of this kind, or of the etfuct ot the mandate or the President for the sur render ot the prisoner upon proceedings altera writ of rtrl'ornri had been quashed. It was, however, proper to ; yay that the |K>wer ot the Court to Issue such a writ in a ease of this description had been frequently affirmed and exercised, and that a warrant of surrender issued bv the government ot the Unlted stales for the delivery of an I accused person to the agents of the demanding'govern- { mcnt had not, so far as they could discover or were ad- | \ised, been heretofore held to be a bar to lurther Inquiry | on any questions which might properly be raised on the return to the whole proceedings. On that subiect they j went no further, because, u. inning that the writ was properly issued and that the warrant lor Me surrender of the prisoner should have no effect to preclude i ftirtlier Inquiry and no effect to render vali 1 pro ceedings which could not otherwise bo sustained, their conclusions t* ere that the ^rounds on which the J discharge ot the prisoner was sought under those writ* ought not to be held. Without discussing the questions that had been raised by counsel at great length, or at tempting to review the arguments, or scekin/ to array I against them the material details of the case, as reasons ! for not giving them the force they seemed to possess in the mind of counsel, they merely contented themselves bv disposing of the objections raised by counsel in the order stated by him. The first objection, as expressed tiy i counsel in the course of his argtun nt, was whether the 1 arrest of the prisoner in this proceeding was an illexal arrest The tacts out of which this question arose appear bv the return to be these That a complaint hail been made at an early day In which a charge of forgery by the prisoner was stated, that charge being particularized bv the statement that lie had been GUILTY or rORIiKBT in the making of two certain bills of exchange for ?1,000 each, w Ith intent to defraud the governors and company of the Hank ot England. The objection was, that upon tin proceedings ha<i upon that complaint the Commls* ?toner, ami the marshal who executed tho Commission- ' er's warrant, acted Illegally. The prisoner was bruuxht I under judicial Inqulrv. as had been pronounced bv one of fie Judges of this Court, alter full argument; and,enter taining the views which governed their decision, tbey were bound to pronounce that A Kith ST AMI) D*TK!?TIO!? LBCAL, legal then and legal always; so that ou the Hthdayof | April, and before the discontinuance of proceedings under that arrest, or, to use another tonn oi words, lie lore the prisoner's discharge Iroui that arrest, lie was ; held In legal custody. While In that custody the war rant oi arrest now in question was placed In the hands of I the Marshal, and thereafter, on tho follow ing morning, on the .suggestion ol the prosecuting counsel, they having 1 no lurther evidence to ojicr In ?upport ot the charge (ana fila.uiy, upon the lacc of the proceedings, because the ! evidence produced did not establish the charge satisfac torily to warrant any other result), the <'oinmisi.ioncr discharged the prisoner Iroin that arrest. It was now urged that by soino legal retroai tlon, the Uncharge of the prisoner from the arrest established conclusively that be was. up to that tune, lnld under that illegal arrest That reasoning they could not stbrin All that it did affirm was that all that had been urged against the prisoner falls.l to establish the charge, but down to the time of his discharge his arrest was i h kaI, and now to hold thatthe discharge of tin- prisoner i for the want of sufficient evidence operated retroac tively, to make the preceding arrest illegal might be ex tended to other kindred eases, that whenever parlies < were arrested on a charge and then discharged, whether lor informal!!) or want of prool, oil verdict or bv direc tion of the Court?that ls,v<?o facto? all other arrests were illegal, and the parties causing It trespas-ers, as il all the lirst prosecution -.ras Illegal Such a doctrine they thought would be productive of mischief. The) said that TUB AOBKST ON Tint I'RKSRNT WAHI ANT was not illegal. It was. however, suggested that the ; prisoner, being in custody on the warrant of arrest, it was illegal to Issue another warrant to the Marshal, and that If proceedings were t? be Instituted aguinst him on another charge it should be done by detainer lodged with trie Marshal and not by warr ant ot arrest as counsel said. Without going Into that question ol practice they were or opinion thai such technical oblections had no iilace in proceedings for the execution ot this treaty and iad no application to this subject It was Insisted that a former decision of this r'ourf involved this proposition.

The City's Title to Parts of Atlantic Avenue Disputed?The Heirs of the Coweahoven Kstate In Court. Before Judge Gilbert. A suit Involving the question of the city's title to cer tain portions ot Atlantic avenue was before Judge Oil bert yesterday. The plaintiffs in the cane are Margaret Kedniond Cowenhoven, Kathcrlne R. Heard and Maria Louisa Strong, who bring suit against the city of Brook lyn under tho following circumstancesThe plaintiff* are the only surviving children and helra-at-law of John Cowenhoven. who died Intestate In thia city on the 18th December, i851, and Eliza, his widow, who (lied on tho 9th of October, 1853. On tho 15th of August, 1823, John Cowenhoven couveyod the properly known as the "Cowenhoven Homestead" In this city, which was conveyed to Leflert Lefferta, Jeremiah John son and John Torgeo. in trust, one third ol the Income, after paying nis debts, to go to his wife, should she survivo him, during her life, and the fee of the remainder to the persons entitled thereto as his helra-at-law. During the lifetime of Mr. Cowenhoven. anil during the continuance of his trust tho Brooklyn and Jamaica Railroad Company was incorporated by act passed April 25, IM32 Under proceedings following tills act of incorporation appraisers were appointed to assess the damages which owners might sustain bv reason ot the appropriation ol their land* for the construc tion ot the railroad. The Cowenhoven Homestead con tains 44 acres, 1 rood and 2 perches, bounded southerly by the old Jamaica turnnikc, northerly by lands ot J. lack son, easterly by lunds ot Vunderbllt, Hyerson and Van Cleefs, aud westerly by the road from Klatbinh to the Brooklyn terry. Of this homestead a strip ot eighty feet was taken for the puiposes ot tho railroad, and on tliu 11th of May, 1835, the Vice Chancollor confirmed the re port of the appraisers and assessed the damages ol the Cowenhoven Trust Estate at $10,907 60, which sum was duly awarded. The railroad company laid their railroad tracks ou this property and operated their railroad thereon until tho month ot April, 1836, when the Brook lyn and Jamaica Railroad Company and the Long Island Railroad Company, their lessees, removed their tracks therefrom, but made a deed conveying the land to the city of Brooklyn for the purpose ol adding the same to tho width of Atlantic avenue. The consideration* given by the city for this conveyance was the right to use steam on Atlantic avenue. The city ha* graded, flagged, paved and guttered the land in question. The plaintiffs now seek to recover possession of the land taken, and claims that the city wrongfully holds possession of it: that the railroad company only acquired an easement and right ot way for the fitly years to which Its franchise was limited, unless it should sooner aban don and surrender the same, und that this abandonment and surrender occurred when the company removed their tracks, as previously mentioned. ...... . Corporation Council Dc Witt appeared for tho city and arKr?f?That in August, 1855, the Brooklyn and Jamaica Railroad Company conveyed to the city all its right in the land in question, and eveu If Its right was merely a right of wav, that right ha* not yet expired, and will not cx I pire until 1-85, fllty years from the time It was taken. .Second?That lor more than twenty years past the land has been thrown open to the public and tho city us a public streot?>rt Harden, paved, curbed, guttered and flagged, and lb all fespecU treated us and ruade a public street of the city, ?hd by virtue of such uses and dedication the laud has bocome a public street of this cit v.

On account of the numerous fires which have re cently lateen place on board American steamers, causing such terrible loss olllle, Captain Addison Low, United States Supervising Inspector of steam Vessels, resolved to give a "surprise party" to some of the principal stoauislup lints plying ont of this port. The first line lie resolved to operate upon was the Old Dominion, and the steamer selected the Old Dominion. During the voyage to Rich mond, while the crew were distributed about the ship attending t<> their various duties, the alarm of fire was given, and in less than two minutes uver.v pump was in use, with hose leaning to every part of the ship. When the pumps wrre stopped the crews lor the boats were detail d, and all went with admirable precision, subsequently the lire

alarm was sounded during me night-, and with a similar result. Captain l?ow states that he intends to pllt numerous steamers to the test in a similar manner, so that he can learn by practical experi ence which vessc<s are wed manned and disci plined. By tills energetic coarse of conduct it is to tie hoped that loss appalling disasters at sea Will have to be obrouidcu, CITY WAMAITS PUD.

YAUm\<, NOTES. The second annual reception or the Pavonla Yacht Club was held last evening In their Club House, near Pavonla ferry. Long Dock, Jersey City. Thero was a large attendance or the members of the club and the boys had a Rood time. Commo dore Kremeyer and Vice Commodore J. L. Cleary, were Indefatigable In their attentions to their guests. The attention of the members or the New York Yacht Club Is called to the lollowing notice:?"ir the wind serves, the yachts will dp started promptly, and persons intending tn go on the club steamer are notified to be punctual." A match race between the sloops Meta and Vision Is talked or. Such an event would excite considerable interest In yachting circles as both yachts are remarkably fast. The steamboat Twilight, furnished ror the exclu sive use ot members or the New York Yacht club and their guests, will leave the Erie Kallroad pier, foot or '1 wenty-thlrd street, North Kiver, to morrow morning, at ball-past nine o'clock pre cisely; pier No. 1 North Kiver at ten o'clock, and quarantine landing, 8. I., at hair-past ten o'clock. In the sloop race on Thursday the old antago nists, Vision and Oracle, will meet. The former Is the favorite, as the canvas or the latter has been cut down. Messrs. Edward Arnold, J. Lawrence Marceiius, William 11. Davenport, H. K. Valentine and Sidney W. Knowies, the Regatta Committee or the Atlan tic Yacht Club, have issued a programme for their regatta, to be sailed on Tuesday, June 10.

Mr. BtUhkrt'i ??w Picture To-D?f. When Lord Chesterfield *u dying he U said to hare remarked. "If Mr. Selwyn should call show him up. If I am alive I ahall be glad to see him; If I am dead he will be glad to see me." This, aa the reader knows, was la allusion to George Selwyn's notorious penchant for viewing dead bodies, and may be aald to hare been the last gleam of that cold wit whloh occasionally sparkled in his lord snip's conversation. The same spirit?that of reoetvlag or giving pleasure, of being the means of more enjoyment existing for some one than pre viously existed?animates almost every artist wlio paints what be considers a good picture and Is will ing to give the dilettante an opportunity of judging. If tue picture pleases, he will be glad to have seen them; If It displeases, they will rejoice to have seen It. For (we blush to own It) there Is nothing your art-smatterer covets more than the oppor tunity of saying something malicious, in the guise of criticism, that shall be colored by the facts of the case. Well, Mr. B. F. Reinhart Is beforo the public with a new picture, as fresh as the Ideal June bud would be If It were only here. It dropped from his easel yesterday, and may be seen to-day at his studio, room 12, Dodworth Hall, 806 Broadway. It Is eutitled "Welcome Home," and greater sim plicity of theme and lovlincsa of treatment would be difficult to come by. It is, indeed, lull of bright ness, breezlness and sweetness. Vou loci agaiust your cheek the tender breath of the clover Held, wnich forms a portion of the background, as much as you feel tne delicious Innocence and huppluess of the two little ones who constitute the theme. In every cup of enjoyment we drink there is one precious drop which gives tono to the whole, and the name of that drop Is Sadness. Whether Mr. lteiiinart recognizes this or not, such Is the senti ment his picture illustrates and eniorces. As there is no happier or sweeter sight than that of two pure children londling each other, so there is none winch is so finely touchlug. We are not surprised to learn that George Stlnsoa A Co. have desired to engrave such a subject, lor it is handled with an atfectionateness, a sweetness of feeling and a lov ing solicitude lor which, we are free to acknowl edge, more ambitious efforts of the same artist had unprepared us. If it be a fact that the true ideal Is the expression of the specific characters of an object In their perfection, then in "Welcome Home" we have somebody very near the true Ideal of ohildhoud?pure, radiant, healthy, happy, ingenuous, self-unconscious child hood, sparkling with the sportive animalism which makes ft something to be tondled and kissed, yet raised by a spiritual touch into something better than m?;re earth. In "Welcome Home" two little girls occupy the centre of the canvas. The large child, evidently about six, Is coming down a couple of rustic steps which bring her irom a clover field belilnd. She has just returned irom a visit, lasting perhaps a day, and is received by her sister, a couple of years younger. The difference in dress Is a sufficient in dication that tho elder child has been away. .She wears stockings and shoes, a neat frock, a clean white aprou and a pretty pink sunbonnet. Tne younger sister is the personification of infant des liabille and abandon, with its rogulshness toned and softened by the Joy of welcome. She has bare arms and leg*, ana seems quite Indlflerent to the comparative finery of her siBter. The merit of these two children is their exceeding naturalness. It is impossible that they should have been drawn irom the same model, as most studies of children are. They are veritable children, children that you can pinch and kiss, and roll and tumble with, and not minute adults with cheeks like rod apple dumplings and curvilinear limbs. We remember children by Meyer von Bremen that we think there Is reason to like less, it Is easy to perceive that the two are sisters for .the family likeness shines through the variegation, and kinship is expressed not less in the varied ideutlty of leature than in the lovely contentment of the eldest child and the clinging joy of the younger. Who nas not beheld pictures of children which tempted him to doubt the immortality of the soul? Tiielr little forms and faces were ol so woodeny a type th it if tnese were to be accepted as emblems of humanity then the spirit within them seemed scarcely worth the saving. But, as there are some physicians by whose hands we had rather die than live by those of others, so there are some artists wh > vvi' preler snould spoil our portrait in prefer ence to having it succeed under the touch ol an other. We can imagine Mr. Keinhart belonging to this stamp of artists; because If he fractures the ideas which other people manufacture for him he more than compensates for such havoc by sub stituting others or his own which are truer more beautiful and more valuable. We believe that there Is not more Joy lu heaven over one sinner that repenteth than there Is among the hierarchy of just critics and broad-brained connoisseurs to whom a new and good work of art is submitted. Whether "Welcome Home" a flt subject for such rejoicing we now leave them to determine. The Clinton Hall Sale To-Nlght. The very valuable art volumes, ball literary and half artistic in interest, to which we referred yes terday, will (a portion of them at least) be sold at Clinton Hall te-nlght. it is the last sale ol the kind of tin season, and is superior in its claims to auy New York has thla year had. _ ... TROTTING AT FLEETWOOD PARK. Two trotting contests came off at Fleetwood Park yesterday afternoon, which were witnessed by about fifty persons, rank and file. The first trot was a match for $600, between the sorrel gelding Star Henry and the black inare Gertrude, mile heats, best, three Injlve^in harness. Star Ileury was the favorite, at sfighro?tdsljefore the start, but alter the first heat at 5 to 1. The driver ol Star Davis nulled the horse on the second heat so bunglingly that every pei son on the track, judges included, saw it, and he lost the heat, but not a word was said about the affair; yet Instead ol altering the betting fl to I was then offered on Star Davis. Probably the reason lor not changing the driver of Star Davis for throwing the heat was that $j0 would have to be given to another driver to take his place, and there was not that amount taken at the irate; and therciore it "couldn't be done, you know." Star Davis won the race easily afterwards. The second race was a match for $'200, mile heats. >,pHt three in nve, in harness, between W. E. Weeks1gray gelding Tom Wonder and D. l'tlfer's bav gelding Bay Billy. The latter was the lavonte at i to l before the start, but was beaten very casllv in three straight heats.

Irishman's Daughter scored the second heat, when complaints were made against Nellie's driver, when the judges re moved iilm and substituted Hiram Howe, the latter obtaining flity dodars under the rules of the Trainers and Drivers' Association for nis services. Rut the change was of little service, as the Irnli nmn's Daughter scored the third and fourth heats with ease, thus winning the race. The following is a BUM M ART.

Great Crowd. The parade of the First Division of the State National Guard took place yesterday afternoon. Governor Dix reviewing the troops at Union Square. The day was, beyond compare, a gem * of beautiful weather. A stiff breeze, cooling arid heats of the day before, had prevailed all the morning and noon, and had moderated with the declining Hun at Ave o'clock to the consistency of ? pleasant zephyr, which might cool the brow without ruffling the bonnet. It raised no dust and whirled no atoms down the general throat. The tired sol dier had no discomforts of the broiling sun or the embrowning dust to tear. The day was as rait- ?' able to the occasion as if the god of day had com menced his round early in the morning with espe cial reference to a flue parade. As early as three o'clock the streets adjoining v" TltK OK AND PLAZA OP UNION SQUARE were thronged with expectant spectators. Along Broadway, Fourth avenue and Seventeenth street men, women and children nad massed themselves to see the division as it passed the reviewing stand* and throughout the square itself, perched on the benches, In the trees and among the Idle machin ery, and a few nestling even under the protecting toga or the lamented Lincoln's Btatue, were the more hopeless and less patient public, who felt con tent under pressure to catch a passing glance of the division, unembellished by the visible presence or the Chier Magistrate or the State and hlB aids. The houses racing the pol nt of review were crowd ed with a luckier set of seers, who could gaso above the heads of the pressing crowd immediate!! down upon the soldiery, and from under the arch- , lug window shades of the Evorett House hosts of fair ladles were enabled to look down right into the face of Governor Dlx himself. A large detail of police served to keep the plaza clear and to pre vent intrusion upoa the reviewing stand, which was Indeed Ailed to repletion by gentlemen and ladies to whom Invitations had been extended bj General Shaler and the Park Commissioners. Flags were flying from the peaks or the Everett House, Westmoreland House, Arcadian Club and a number ol the edifices In sight. TDK DIVISION WA8 FORlfED at four o'clock In close column of companies, with the front resting on Filth avenue, in the following order:?The Second brigade on West Ninth street. Battery B on East Ninth street, the Third brigade on West Tenth street, Batteries 0 and G on East Tenth street, the First brigade on West Eleventh street and Battery K on East Eleventh street. The separate troop of cavalry which led the way and formed General Shaler's bodyguard, formed on East Thirteenth street. At hair-past tour the column moved, General Shaler in command, up Firth avenue to Fourteenth street, through Four teenth street to Broadway, up Broadway to the Grand Plaza. . ON THE GRAND STAND. c As the head or the column reached Fourteenth atreet aud Broadway tbe Governor took his place on the stand erected ror the rovlewing officer. It was built on the northern end or the little Gothic cottage, and fronted the broad street with Belgian pavement (Seventeenth street originally, but now widened and phllologtcally harmonized into the Grand Plaza), and it was decorated with a pro lusion or flags aud banners. The Governor was dressed in the ordinary blaek attire or tiie citizen. He was accompanied by his entire staff, Major Genoral Sanford and Adjutant General Rathbone leading, and was immediately supported on the reviewing stand by Vice Admiral Rowan, of the United States Navy, and Major General W. S. Han cock, of the reuular army, each in tne fun uniform or his rank, while Just * behind him were Lieutenant Governor Robinson, with nothing of his soldierly attire about him but ? bis crutches, and Major Geueral James W. Busted, of the Firth Division or the State National Guard, resplendent In lila brand new legislative uniform, sword and epaulets. Among the other distin guished people on the platform were general Mor ris, Captain Herrera-Davila, or the Ordnance De partment ol the Spanish Army; captain GaRton, of tho Pay Department or the same: Lieutenant Fish, son of the Secretary of State: Peter Cooper, and Al'Jertaan Vanc^, While in the sitting room of the a Gothic Cottage, too weak from his long Illness to trust hlm?ell to the pressure of the crowd ou the platform, though still looking nearty lor bis great age, sat. Thuriow Weed, attended by his devoted^ 11 A*Kr&i Sliai?r reached the reviewing stana tie saluted anu toot fltongnlde the stand, hi* staff and body guard ran^ng in Une on his right. Tne regiments then commenced to move paat tne Governor, and became at once the object of the at teutlon of the vast body or onlookers and or the military celebrities wiio stood by the Governor's ? side. TfTE MARCHTNO IN OENERAL was excellent, the Seventh, as usual, carrying ofl the palm lor excellence in everything pertaining to parude. Cheers were freely bestowed upon this model organization when Its head of column turned Into the Grand Plaza, and were kept np until they disappeared beyond Fourth avenue Into Seventeenth street. The perfect alignments were almost marvellous, in view of the seem ingly unconquerable desire of voung mi litiamen to look upon a distinguished individual reviewing them. The step and bearing were most, soldierly, and the saluting of coinmis- / sloned and non-commissioned officers was uni rormlv gracetul. The Ninth regiment followed the Seventh In the column, and presented a very un commendable contrast to that handsome com mand. The alignments of the Ninth were usually faulty; too many "private" eyes were glaring upon the Governor Instead or the gnlde, and many ol the men carried themselves with a gait that was rather shuffling than soldierly. One captain, while engaged In the duty or saluting, had his company ? stumbling over his heels. The unliorm or the regi- ' ment., once too gaudy ror beaury, has now had its gaudiness ground out or it., and Is slouchy rather tuan handsome, serving with unrortunate pre cision to expose a wearisome unlionnlty of round shoulders. TltK TWENTY-SECOND REGIMENT appeared In handsome style, and was the recipient ais'o of heartv cheers. The hero of "Humpty Dumpty'? was descried at his post, as zealously performing the duty of parade as he does the pantomime, and was cordially cheered by the gods of the gallery as he strutted by. TIIR SIXTY-NINTH AND SEVENTY-FIRST were cheered for their handsome marching. The latter t arries a war-worn flag which should nave rest. It hangs in mere strips from the staff, and, unless care is taken or It, mav not survive many more campaigns. We commend the otllcers to lay It away and provide themselves with a newer and brighter oue ror the grand parades yet to come upon the Grand Plaza. The artillery was well manned In all instances, the guns looked tinglit and ferocious, and the artillerymen hore themselves like the grim men or war they are popularly supposed to be. The cavalry was all In excellent trim, though some or the companies were ratiier thin. One lieutenant In the Washington^ Grays commanded a platoon or Just four men, who rode at wide intervals as ir to spread out to save appearances. The police arrangements were very excellent until the eud, when, beiore the First Battalion of cavalry, which brought up the rear, had passed the stand, and while Governor Dlx stood bareheaded, acknowledging the salutes of the officers, the crowd of men and bovs directly opposite broke through the police, scampered between the platoons of cav alry and Immediately assailed the platform whereon the (tovernor stood, some or tho more irreverent , among tliem, carried away probably by associations ' connected with the recent political campaign.
