TAXPAYERS' R TOUTS. All taxpavors iu this city who hnvo h id occaslou lo ?all at the Tax Office In relation to their property need not to hare described to them the system pursued in that asylum for superannuated *ud decayed politician*, or the manners or want ihereol, or the efficiency or In" efficiency of those employed therein, such taxpayera will be Interested to know, however, that a case has Just I tee 11 decided in the courts which establishes au Important right in their favor, in opposition to the fantastic tricks heretofore born of tho stupidity, lari ncss and arrogance of tho beneOclarle* of the Tax J Office. It appears that Mr. David Dudley Field ! had for m.iny years regularly paid taxes on j * house and lot on Sixteenth street be longing to his daughter. but about a year sgo he was astonished to di.-covcr that this property had been sold lor non-payment ol taxes lor the yesr lsft\ th? purchaser, a Mr. I'tnckney. claiming possession under * tax lease b>r 1.000 years from ihe ctly Know ing thai tie had paid his laves on the properly for the year ls?iS and all oilier years as such taxes became tue Mr. Field In iituied an investigation, which resulted In the discovery that Ins tax receipt ?or that v?Mr contained th ? proper number of and its me of the street, ihe ward in which It was situated , in i tbe valuation ot ibe property, but ihe wrong ward number, and that the ward number to which payment j was credited was that of an adjoinlne lot. The man on I whose lot Mr Field's taxes were credited refused to pay his taxes, claiming that they were discharged of r cord, ?nd the city authorities reiused to set Mr. Field right, claiming that it was through bis lault In not giving iho rnrret-t ward nuiulcr that the m stake occurred, and lhat he must look to nis neighbor who got the benefit nt the error for such reparation a* he could get. Mr. Field then Instituted a suit In the Supremo C 'iirt in the name or Mr. I'lnckney, who got the a< the result ot the Tax Office error, to have the lease vacated and set aside, the ground on which the suit was ba?ed being that when a taxpayer stales In the Tax office to tho proper official the wnrd in which Ins property Is situated, tbe street and number ol tho street and the distance from tho e- rner of the next rross street, lie has given them all Iho information that can be legitimately within Ins knowledge and all that to necesserv to ermble iliem to Identity the prop erly; that If they choose to have in tbe office nnv other (abaiistlc sign identifying the property, such us a map number on tho war<l imp. they and not the taxpayer hold the kev to th" cabala, and it l? lor them to In terprrt IU On the part of the city :t was claimed In the Mid lhat the tax|>aver is bound logo into the | tny.-teries of the Tax office and find out tbe ward ii,ap number of his property at hi* own ri"X nnd that the overworked clerks in the lax' offi.-o aro not bound to March for It ?v<mi alter the owner has given such a description of the property as to make It easy lor any person of or dtnary intelligence to fix Its Identity with the cabalistic Sigh which they have attached to It. Judge Van \ orst, liowever, who has now decided the case, took a dllTer- | ?nt view'of the extent ot their duties from that enter tained by the tax officials for themselves. Ho hoi s, ^ with Mr. Field, that the description be gave of ln< ] prnj>erly Is all that sny tsxrayer i? bound to gi?e. and , sufficient for lis Identification, and that It I* lor tbe tax | clerks, from that description, to ll\ the number ol the . property on tbe ward map at their risk. The result la j ? judgment annulling the le iso to Mr. I'mckney and dl I recline mat tbe lax records he corrected iu Mr. Field'* favor, with com* of tho action against the city. TITF.

Tbelr counsel, ex-Judge Dlttenhoefer, asked that tbo prison ers lie discharged, aud said that there is ue evideuco against (hem to ?bow why they should be detNined. The Commissioner then adjourned the ense until Mon day. June 5, at a quarter-past three 1*. M., when Mr. Solomon will sum up on tho side of the i\ustnan gov ernment. SUMMARY OF LAW CASES. The receiver of the Security Savings Bank yesterday flled bis report in the County Clerk's office. He has paid oat during tho month of May 83, and tor sundry expenses be has paid $i!91 03, leaving a balance in his bunds of $i:$, 067 15. In the County Clerk's ofllce yesterday judgment under foreclosure was entered against Henry Hilton, Mr. Butler Duncan and others for JOO.fttKJ 00, at the suit of Augustus Scbell. The property affected is the Manhattan ( lull, on Fifteenth si reel, near Fifth ave nue. The judgment wus entered by default, the action belug brought to change title. Judge ISarretl yesterday denied thu motion lor iin extra allowance to Mi. Wliltney, the Corporation Coun sel, for defending the suit brought against the city by the widow of John Kellum, the architect ot the new Court House, to recover $190,000, being three per cent on tbe cost of the building. The ground of denying tho motion was that Mrs Kellum had a fori? rusa ngmnst tbe city and was therefore justified in bringing the suit. TIIE KLEY CASE. Some time ago the papers published numerous refer ences to Mrs. Amin C. KIcy, who, It wus charged, was accustomed to operato on false pretences, and was, in fact, a confidence woman fall of devices. The charge upon which Mrs. Kley was arrested was made by a boarding house keeper, whose house is on Lexington avonue. Very soon after her avpearanco in court it bognn to be rumored that Mrs. Kk'y was a profesilouaj confidence woman, and a lawyer appeared with a long list of charges, which, he said, he would press as soon ns the prosccutlou of the original complaint was ended. That conip'atnl seems not to have been well based, for although Justice Buffy sent the papers re; lating to it to District Attorney Phelps oHiee, it was there passed over, aud yesterday lhe counsel tor thu bourding house keeper stated to the writer that It was not tenable. He also said that lie bad investigated the other charges agamst Jrfrs. Kley aud found that lhey were equally without founda tion. Those lutter charges were not pressed by tho lawyer w ho declared thai be would preis them This fact was prima facto evidence that thev were not strong. Another phnso is now put upon the rise of Mrs. Kley. She has begnn a suit agalnsi one John W. Healey, aliening that ho conspired to rain her character, and thu In furtherance of his scheme lie procured of a list of her creditors, and then asserted, through counsel, in court that >lie had contracted all the debts throuuh false pretence", for which criminal J suits would t>e brought aualn^t her. Tbe origin of this | riithcr mixed case is thus told;?Severul years ago Mr. Healey became indebted to Mrs. Kley. and she began a ' suit for liquidation. She procured a judgment, atijl then Healey appealed to her to satisfy it without con sideration, .sa.vms that if the foci of its existence be came known to the other members of a firm in which he was he would be dismissed and rutne<t. Mrs. i Kiev listened and attended to his appeal. She sails- ! fled the Judgment, but soon after learned that Healey was not a member ot tbe firm mentioned. She then beuati a suit to set asidu the release of judgment on the ground of iraud. This action was progressing when Mrs. Kley was arrested, and to complicate her affairs and injure her chance of recovering from himself, it is alleged, Healey conspired as above mentioned. POLICE COURT NOTES. Andrew Johnson, a negro, of Na 48 Baxter street, who ' speuds ten mouths yearly on tho Island, was arrested by Sergeant Kyan. of the Sixth precinct, for breaking into tho prointse.s No. (.6 Park street, owned and occu pied by Benjamin Wood, and stealing $20 worth of i brass mountings.

The case of The People against ex Collector of Taxes Isaac liadiau, of Brooklyn, wag finally and cfTcctualty disposed ol yesterday. There were two indictments njfnlnst him rhargiug him with the embezzlement ?f city money. lie was tried once before Jndgo Nell son but the Jurv disagreed. Since that time his coun sel havo scoured Now York and Brooklyn lor evidence, and facts hare been to light which they claim prove conclusively that whoever else may have embezzled money In that office, Mr. Badeatt did not Checks and other vouchers have also been found which tend to prove this The city has, how ever. obtained a judgment against Mr. Ilndeaa, and ho ha* al igned over all his property to satisfy It. In view of this fact, and of (be action of the Common Council on Monday, since approved by the Mayor, District At torney Britton appeared belore Judge McCun in the City Court yesterday and moved that a nolle pro-equt be entered on both indictments against Mr. Itadcnu. Mr. Patrick Ready appeared for Mr. Iiadcau and said that since the previous trial he had found evidence which. In his opinion, would satisfy an v court or jury of the Mr. Itadenti's innocence, and tills would have been produced had the case been tried again. Mr. Britton said the prosecution had now no tnoro evidence tlian they had at the time of the first trial. Judge McCu*? {(ranted ttie motion, and a nollo was entered in both cases. Tho civil matters now pending will l>e settled In a day or two, and this will end tho whole case. POLICE COURT REVELATIONS. CnABOE OF ATTEMPT TO BIltnE COUWHEIi AGAINST a roucE ootnvr ci-f.bk. Sevo'al mouths since I.ouiaa Stork, of No. 08 Eighth street, caused the arre>t In Ksaex Market Pollco Court ofHoswell I* Colt, of No. lftj We-it Forty-third street on a charge of bastardy. Her Object was to get support for her child Irom Colt, whom she claimed to le Its father. Colt lives on the interest of his money, or his father's, and he keenly ielt the disgrace ot his position. Several examinations were held boiore Judgo Kasmirc, but ihe greater part ol the testimony was taken by Wiiliam Hlley, one of the clerks of the Court, the Judge being called in only to decide technical points. Tne Cominl-sioners of Emigration were the prosecutors, the girl Stork having only recently arrived from Vermany, and had become a domestic in tho Colt family. Tho testimony of ibe girl a? to the paternity of tho child was moat positive against Colt, but ho made desperate effort a to disprove tlic main points. When Judge Kasmirc was recently assigned to the Kilty seventh Street Police Court the case <>t Stork vs. Colt, whicii was in an itniinished state, followed him, nnd some further t< siimonv was taken In the mean time, however, Mr. MeAdam. counsel for Colt, had ? nhdrnwn from the case. nnd Rufus K. Andrews took Inspliee. At the first or secOnl examlBatton iu the Kilty seventh Street Court a revelation was mule which caused i sensation, but good care was taken lor the time being ibai it did not bei oine public. Piinng one of the examinations at the Kilty-seventh Street i otirl Judge Kasmirc received a letter irom Com missioner Forrrttt, ni the Knilgnnt Hoard, calling Ins attention to an alleged attcmi>t on ihe part of Mr. Illtcy, the clerk at Essex Market Court, to bribe Mr. McCaho, the <oui>-el for the Commissioners, to settle the case. Mr. Met abe was call-d upon by Judge Kas mire lor a statement in regard to the atxKoicn matter, winch he gave, aiil it was .-uhnilttcd In writing and ?worn to. He said 11? t on one occasion at Essex Market Court Mr Ifilev took him out of court aBd ?ild that il he <ot:-cmed to a settlement in favor ol the defendant they could make f I e.n li, and that there would be no dilhrulty in obtainn l' a rent let III the defendant's favor, becaase Juifge K.i-niire would be guiiled hv bis repre-eiitations of the evidence ni deriding the i i-e. rhe offer was rejected by Mr. McCabc, who inlornied corporation cobiisel Devlin and Commissioner I orrest regarding the matter Mr. lliley, who ?a< pr sent when Mr Mct'.ihe formally made his charge oetore Judge KaMRtre, nested the aileg<ttna nk?i emphatic ally.

Mr. You ure heraby notified that viror investment in the lAiulnville (Kj. I Library (iilt Cuueort boa retailed In your drawing onu of tlm unclaimed pnxei, valued at (NOG.

The reporter first made a xlsit to No. 14 Park place to net a glimpse of the ofAco of A. E. Allen k Co. U covers the first story of I bo building and is divided into departments Inlwllea "Manager," ''Cashier," "Secre tsty." Ac., and to tho rustic eye might give an impres sive appearance of business. After leaving lie was satisfied of its status and called on Captain Saunders, of the Twenty-seventh precinct and banded him tho clrcu* Isr. The captain placed tho matter in the hands of Detective Vulvev, who proceeded to worn it up. A mild looking iriend of tho detective visited the office, takiug with liim the circular and $10 to draw ibe $'.'00 pri7.?. The detectlvo wailed outside and In a few moments his Iriend returned with tbo deed of a lot in ltowou county, Kentucky, tor wbtcb bo paid tho $10. The deed was given "for and In con sidcratlon of tho sum of $200,'* and wu signed K. W. Wood, President and Trustee of ibe Queen Cuy I.mid and Building Company, which, according to s circular. Is duly incorporated somewhere in the State ol Ken lucky. TUe dclectivo then went in and arrested the mnn who took the money and brought him to the sta tion, where be was locked up on a charge of violating the lottery law. He gave Ills namo as William H. Kvclelh. and stated he was only acting for Allen k Co. and knew very liitlo o.' their business. He knew enough, however, to tulco the $10 and hand over tho $2)0 prize (?) in the shape oi an Illuminated deed for certain real estate therein described. The document is dated December 2, 1H75, and has been walling for the lucky winner ever since. There is no doubt the vholo concern Is a humbug. The unclaimod prises, amount ing In value to $137,000, aro Mt'StinooM LOTS OCT WKST, which are probably dear at a dollar an acre, and Iho dupe who sends on his $t0 to get $200 in return is presented a deed for 2.ri\100 of this valuable prop erty. Although perfectly satisfied tho scheme was ono of the many swindles gotten up every day for Ibe benefit ol' verdnnl Individual*, the only charge that could so j fur bo preferred wns lor violating the lottery law. und : he was accordingly locked up to auswor. The papers | and letters found on his person when searched indic ate his connection with numerous enterprises of a doubt , ful character. In one of them lie Is put down as the secretary of the Mutual Mercantile Agency, a most ex raordlnarv concern, as will be seen from the follow ing inducements set torth in its printed prospectus? "The policy of tbe Mutual Mercantile Agency will be to build up, not pull down, tho crodlt of mcrchautg and manufacturers, and to give lull weight and credit to their own statemeut or their affairs in making up their credit rating. " It iurtber promises -'certain ben efits which in value cannot be estimated," all for tho small consideration of $5 per year in advance. It culls , attention to chnnges constantly made in tbe comnier cial standing ol business nieu by other agencies, and nrtes tho necessity of immediately remitting the small suin before mentioned In order that you may appear good before th? world for nnv amount you may choose to name. In fact, they promise to put vou down in their report book, "which is soon to be published," with as much credit as you wish lo have, and to do Just the same lor those who may want credit from you. It would have delighted tho heart of MicavVber to meet with such a chance and would have saved him the many little difficulties bis wnnt of credit caused him. The manager of tho concern, D. M. Oazloy, is described ns a man of ripe commercial experience, who lately vacated the managerial cbalr of a promi nent journal to accept his present position. In addi tion to all this, they have correspond*! ts all over Iho country, "to whom you can refer and regelate nnd ex- 1 lend your credit" the principal object of this latter , provision is, no doubt, to enable you to havo yonr creditors at conveniently remote distances. Another loiter in his pockot was addressed to Squandorph k ! Co., datod at Waco. Texas. It complained of the re celpt ol watches which were "strictly brass" and not \ in accordance with an agreement on which money was forwarded. The writer demands half bis tnoney back and agrees to lose the balance, nnd threatens to expose Squandorph A Co. il lliey do not come to time. As it Is bur to presume he did not got his half back this will probably save him tbo trouble. GOING TO SING SING.

He made his headquarter* st tfce Westchester House, corner of the Bowery and Mroome street, and hud for hl? associates George Davis snd Tom Reynolds, since dead; young Charley Matthews and Jimmy Dodd. It was seldom that ? woman conld pass by withoot being in?ulled fcr ihia gang oi blackguards. Whenever ? woman stopped to apeak to them, either from curiosity or carelessness, Harney was Introduced to her a* Cap lain Willoughby. Among the ninny dodges worked by the party to eke out a precarious living was ttje print Ini? of bogus tickets lor disreputable picnic*, which they sold to foolish young men In liquor saloon*. It was a mistake to cluss Harney as a sporting mnn or n gambler. Ho was regarded by them only as a nun U? bring in a pigeon to b? plucked, or a "enter* charmsr,'' to borrow from a successful player. He wu well known in this regard by the habit*** ofthe ??old Smoke House foro game," kept by Kliaa Randall, and after ward by Frank Brown, at No. HO Bowery, and also at the old games In the Crystal and Gotham a i loons Tbo war broke ont and llnrney went into the enlistment business, putting immigrant* iliroturh and pocketing their bounties. Tha close of Ike war lound him again a faro bank steerer and a "lover" in the Bowery. At that time the Davis girls lived in the Tenth ward. M iry was married to Carl Hemricb Newmann, better known as '-Dutch Heinrlcb," the bank robber; Henrietta was the wife of "Shceney Tieruoy," the pickpocket, and Sally bad * lover named Kramer Huruey held at this time a sinecure position as collector of murket rates and was a heuchman of Tweed. He was removed by Comptroller Brcnnun, and the man who sorved the notice of removal lound Har ney living with his root wile and two children in a house in Filly-second street. This was In lKW. | Shortly alter Sally Davis told Fra.ser that she waa going to leave him. He said, "Whnt lor ?" She replied, , "lam going to bo tnarrlod to Captain Willoughby, a wealthy army olllcer, who resides in Washington and Is A IAHTICCLAR FUIKN'0 OF MR. WILLIAM A.

Ho said, *'ls this your husband?" Sho on fwered, "Yes." Fraser said, "Why, yon , how did you come to bo Captain Willoughby?" Harnoy ran away. At this timo, which wns the date ol tho alleged 1 payment ol the $460, Harney bought Sully a silk dress and jewelry. Ho took her to Washington, roglsteiod her thcro as his wile and Introduced her as his vlfe. She is now In this city. An cx-Cougrosainau yesterday made a most Impor tant statement to a IIkiiai.o reporter regarding tbe Harnoy matter. Ho said:?"Mr. Nelson W. Taylor wus the Congressman from the Seventh, Tenth aiid Thir teenth wards. When 1 arrived in Washington Mr. Taylor said to ino, '1 um In a Ux aud I want you to aid me by giving ine your army appointments. I asked him what was the ? rouble, and be said In reply that ho bad sent In Green's name to the secretary ol War, and hud since found a young man named Jumes Whelan who was far morn deserving of tbo appointment I told him I could not give up my privilege, bat advised bin to call on Socretary Stuuton und obtain permission to withdruwdreen's name. He did so; Green's unrno was withdrawn, ami Whelan received the ponllion. Soon I after Harney spoke to me and asked as a personal i favor to hliusell that I should appoint Green. He did ; not ofler to pay mo any money, aud If be had I would ' have knocked him down. I appointed a very deserving ! young man, then working in Chester's' telegraph tactory, who now holds a captain s command in !

The siory ; told by this purty is substantially us follows:?"Just ; alter ibo close ol the war a large number ol commis sions in tbe regular army were issued by the War De I part meat. This man Green, who is said to Inve fur nts^ed the money which passed into Harney's bauds, was a warm Iriend of William A. Darling, then a Representative tn Congress. Green wauled an 1 appointment and applied to Mr. Darling for I H, but Darling was unable to a?eisi him directly, as he hid but recently secured a commission for another friend. He was, however, very friendly to Mr. Strauss, of Philadelphia, and to Mr. Kerr, nnd, or lie desired to help Green, he went to < those gentlemen and requested tbem to use their In fluence with Mr. Stanton. Mr. Strauss was first np- : p led to, bnt It soon transpired that ne had little or no influniico with the Secretary. Theu Mr. Kerr was sought, Harney going with Darling to see him. To ue- 1 comodate Darling Mr. Kerr went With tireen to Mr. Sinnton ami secured ihc courted appointment. I know ! that <!recn did pay Harney M-'i" to get the appoint- ] meiit, but I also know lliut Harney put tnut money iu 1 his own pocket as he hud there put money strangely procured before. 'Why, sir. the very night that Harney says ho paid I hat money to Kerr he was blind, blazing drunk, unu 1 took hiui home, only to get a blowing up next day from his woman. The next night, nud tho oue following that, and, indoed, for many nights, ho was so drunk that he oouldn't tell his own namo." "You s?v Harney has lieen known to improperly re ceive and keep money in a similar manner before," remarked the reporter. "Well, I will tell you what I mean by that In 1861, Mr. James Kellv, who was then Treasurer of tbo Re publican General Committee in ttn* city, agreed to give us #500 up in this Assembly district to help elect Denis McCabe to ihe Assembly. The money was to have been paid to me, but I was anulile to go* lor it at the time named and sent Harney. Mr. Kelly paid bun tho amount; but, when Harney catno up town, he handed me f.iH), saying It was all he bad received. I was very busy with the oicnuon just then, but as soon as thai was over I went and saw Kelly and asked why ho had not sent up f-WO. as per agnement He was greatly surprised at iny question, and replied that ho had SKNT THAT AM Or XT HT HARXKT. McCabe and I then went for Harney. We met him In a saloon up town, and, biking liitn into a back room, askeil him again bow much money Kelly bad paid him. 'Two hundred dollars' was his reply. I then said, -hook here. H irney. Kelly hia just told nio that he gavo you $.'>00. Where's ihut other |Joo' llarncy was very much em barrassed, and. seeing we bad him dead to rights, ? owned np. He hud spent #fc>, he *uid, for private pur poses, and tbe other tM>0 he still had. .-eetig matters were uVut lo be made pretty lively for him, he agreed to return the $.ToO in the course of a month or s\ Ho did return thai sum." "What is Harney's general reputation among thoso who know him l>o.-t V nsked the roporier. "It is not good, I can assure you. He used to bo a shoulder-hitter and was nt one time the terror ol every gin mill in tbe ward.

Mo.ide, hn* remained iu tills citv, chiefly lor the pur pose ol taking the supreme control ol the investigation in Speaker Kerr's ense. aud as a consequence ol' di recting ihe accumulation of evidence iu ibis city io lest Barney's reliability. This wns not lound mi ea?y duly, as It proved lo be dilllcull lo secure such testi mony as might l>e docenUy pro.-eu led to a Congres sional commit Ice. I be associations ol Harney were of that peculiar sort which in themselves were evidence ngainst his integrity, and vet, for reviewability sake, could not t>e brought to light lor the purpose oi testi mony. M/. Meade ha*, honrevor, through the agents lie employed, secured a sufficient number ol respect able witnesses who are familiar with Harney's ante cedents to prove| beyond u doubt to a Congressional ciMum tlce that Speaker Kerr's High character cannot be tirnislied by the avtcrtlons ol a man whose life has been so strangely removed ? Iroin such a course of rectitude us would command either respect lor liiuisell personally or any belief in acrtisnlion-ho might choose to make against others.
