The upper Board did not accept the amendment,but offered one of their own, to which the Council did not assent The amendment by the Council gave the old salary and a uniform, the cost of which shall not exceed $50, to the police and deputy marshals. The amendment by the upper Board was an increase of salary of $50. Other salaries remain as last year, except the salaries of members of the lire department, which were raised $16 each, making $66 per year. The following communication and an accom panying order, were presented by the Mayor and referred. To the Honorable Board of Aldermen and Com mon Council of the City of Portland: Gentlemen—Section 3 of the City Charter prescribes among other duties of the Mayor, that “He shall from time to time communicate to the City Council or either board, such infor mation, and recommend such measures as the interests of the city may require.” In accordance with" previous notice given you, I would now most respectfully urge upon the attention of the City Council the importance of providiug for a re-valuation of the real es tate of the city, the last valuation having beeu made in 1860. Twelve years have now elapsed without any readjustment of values, which I am satisfied from my own observations is much needed. The present Boatd of Assessors have devised a plan for making a new valuation which I have carefully examined and believe it to be not only feasible, but a plan which will commend itself to each member of the City Council as being just what is needed at the present time, and can be obtained at a small expense to the city. At my request the As sessors have submitted to me the plan and the following statement, which I now lay beiore you, viz: “A new valuation, partly to correct inequali ties in the old, and partly to obtain a more con cise and perfect description of the parcels of real estate, is greatly needed. We are fully of the opinion that the most effective and available way of recording such a re-valuation is by divisional plans of the streets whereon each lot is plotted, its size and owner ship designated,and the street numbers marked, as. in the accompanying chart, these to be bound in book form. With the plans at band when property is sAd, the name of the pur chaser could be entered under the previous own er’s name and thus, the identity of the lot and its ownership could always be easily traced. Such plans would likewise be almost invalua able for future reference in tracing titles to real estate in the city. Furthermore a permanent record would thus be obtained of the street-numbers of each build ing and lot and the confusiou in this particular now existing would lie forever avoided.” I have become satisfied that a re-valuation can be better made and at less cost to the city by the Board of Assessors than in any other manner. We have within our limits 461 miles of streets It will require two hundred sheets of drawing paper. 24x30 inches, each sheet con taining eighteen hundred lineal feet of streets, plotted on a scale of twenty feet to one inch. I am informed by the City Civil Engineer that the work can all be done in his office in connec tion with regular duties and without any in crease of office expense. The skeleton plans when completed are to be delivered to the As sessors and they eutcr on each lot the name of the owner, its size and street numbers, ia order to perpetuate these numbers and have each building to correspond to the number on the plan. It should be their duty to prepare suitable paper numbers which should be pasted on each building now built, which will enable its owner to make it permanent, and thereby relieve the City Council from the flood of peti tions annually presented for the re-numbering of our streets. In accordance with the foregoing views I have prepared an “order,” which, if accepted by you, will enable the Assessors to commence their labors at an early day and we may hope to 'nave the new valuation go intu effect in 1874. Very respectfully, your ob’t serv’t, ucu. i- . w escott, mayor. The following order came up from the Com mon Council: That on and after May 1st, next, the city shall he divided into two Fire Districts, to lie called the First and Second Fire Wards, and shall be bounded as follows: AH that part of the city lying east of a line run ning thro’ the centre of Centre street and Preble street, across the city, and taking in all the alarm boxes numbered below 31, to be called the First Fire District or Ward, and all that part of the city wost of the aforesaid houuds, and including all the boxes from 31 inclusive, upwards *o be be called the second Fire Dis trict or Ward, and that all fires occurring in the First Ward or District shall be answered by the steam tire engines stationed Herein, and that all fires occurr ng in the St cond District shall be answered by the steam fire engines stationed therein, and that no engine shall leave the en gine house to answer an alarm in another than iheir own district until a second alarm shall have been sounded, and they shall be in readi ness to attend such alarm as soon as given.— A"'sorder shall have no referenco to any Hook ,derP°-> or Hose Carriage whatever.— Referred. Adjourned. IN COMMON COUNCIL. A special meeting of the Common Council was held last evening at which papers were passed in concurrence, and the salary bill was discussed. Adjourned. A New Object.—The Advertiser understands that a new project is on foot among our mer chants that if carried ont will prove of vast im portancc. If the reader will take the map o P irtland he will see that the line of the wharve and of Commercial street, from Railroad whar to the Great Eastern wharves, is arched like ai angry cat’s back. It is well known that w have not half enough wharf facilities with ou growing busine s and trade—the publ cation o the statist c of which,.abolished since the fire would astonish th# leader, and wh ch th Board o . Trade propose to resume—and th new proposition is to cut off the ends of th projecting wharves and build out all the others so that all shall be flush with the Harbor Com missioner’s line. It is then proposed to build : new street parallel with the new wharf line south of Commercial street, which w„uld thei be used for tbe railroads, while Commercia street would be retaiued for business purposes or vice versa. The project is a most import an one. Portland lnitiint* and Public I.lbrarr. The annual meeting of the Portland Insti tute a nd Public Library was held at their rooms at four o’clock yesterday afternoon, the presi dent, Hon. W. L, Putnam, in the chair. librarian’s report. From the renort of the librarian, Mr. E. A. Noyes we learn that the circulation of books during the past year lias been very little larger than the year previous, showing 33,730 volumes issued to borrowers from April, 1872, to April, 1873, against 32,531 for the preceding year. The issues would doubtless have becu very much larger but for the fear of infection during the winter, which caused a markod falling off in the issue of hooks. For the same causes the number of yearly subscribers has fallen from 390 the previous year to 375 in the pres ent year. The free list of teachers aud mem bers of the City Government has ruu up from 110 to 133, all hut two of the teachers in the public schools availing themselves of library privileges free of charge. The totol number of volumes added the past year was 1245, 098 vol umes being received from the library of the late Hon. Wm. Willis, completing his bequest. Of the remaining 546 volumes received and pur chased during the year hut 127 were works of fiction aud the remainder, with scarcely an ex ception, were valuable and desirable books, some of them very costly. Accompanying this report is a classified statement of books receiv ed in each department. All these books have been catalogued aud entered in the accession catalogue, and the Willis await only labels and shelf numbers. lutbe periodical department, “Nature” and “The Engineer”—Englit h specialities — have been ad ’ed, and the committee have ordered the extension of the list of Religious and Theo logical Reviews, and ordered the denomination al reviews of the leading sects throughout the country. Experience has shown that 82000 a year will enly purchase the publications of the day, without procuring the desirable publica tions of the past, and the librarian has only purchased such hooks as would supply the pressing demands of the public. Many scien tific works recommended last year have been purchased and the others can be by using strict economy in other departments. Shelf room will be provided in the main library room by removing the departments of religion and the ology to the periodical room. Slips are already prepared for a supplement to the present cata logue, (which will be nearly as voluminous) and only awaits funds to be printed. The repoit closes with a tribute to Mr. Arthur H. Brown, assistant librarian, who in a few months of evening service had developed a true love for and appreciation of his duties. LIBRARY ACCESSIONS.

Messrs. John Neal, S. E. Spring, G. F. Shepley, Israel Washburn, Jr., A. W. H. Clapp. The presi dent was appointed a committee to procure an appropriation from the city. The clerk was requested to inform the city that 'they should appoint two directors for the ensuing year. The directors re-elected W. L. Putnam, presi dent; I. Washburn, Jr., vice president; E. A. Noyes, librarian, clerk and treasurer. State Street Church.—The Annual Par ish Meeting of State Street Church was held last evening. Eben Corey was elected Moder ator, and A. F. Gerrish Clerk. It. M. Kich ardsou, Eben Corey and W. F. Milliken, were elected Parish Committee; Charles Payson, Treasurer and Collector; and C. E. Milliken, I. T. Dana aud ,1. E. Blabon, Music Commit tee. The salary of the pastor was fixed at 83,500 for the present year. The salary of the Sexton was fixed at $350. The matter of bringing Sebago water into tho building was left with the Parish Committee. The sum of $600 was voted for repairs and improvements. A vacation of four weeks was voted to the pastor, and $200 was voted to supply the pulpit during his absence. The commission of the Treasurer and Collector was fixed at 5 per cent. The whole sum voted to be raised by taxation on the pews was $7,500, being on assessment of 30 per cent on the present valuation of the pews. The officers of the church were made the committee to supply the pulpit during the ab sence of the pastor. More Contributions,—Dr. Gordon, who has just returned frem New York, announces the following contributions from Maine men resident in that city: Horace Waters & Son, 481 Broadway, manufacturers of pianos, etc., one concert parlor organ; Augustus W. Paine> $100 cash; Dexter A. Hawkins, $25; John E. Dow, Jr., $25; Herman Gruntal.a large contri bution of valuable go jds; Augustus F. Libby, of H. J. Libby &Co., a lot of valuable shawls. The ball is started in New York and good re sults may be expected from that quarter. Dr. Gordon received a great deal of assistance from Mr. Clinton Furbish of New York, who had the matter of New York contributions left in his hands. Mr. Erastus Brooks wrote a powerful article in favor of the Fair in the Express. The Allan Line —The main features of the mail contract with Allan’s line submitted by the Dominion Government to the House, arc the payment of an annual subsidy of a hundred and twenty-six thousand, five hundred and thirty-three dollars, payable quarterly. For this, Allan’s line is to carry a weekly mail twenty-six times each way to and from Quebec, with vessels no smaller nor less powerful than the Hibernian. They are never to approach xbuuc w lit?Li ib is uiuiyeruus lur lueui iu uo so The Allan’ line incurs no liability if the mails are lost by legitimate dangers of the sea. When vessels sail from Portland they should call at Halifax. The contract is from April 1st, 1873, to the same period of 1878; a year’s notice to be given of the abandonment or continuance of the contract. Bloodgood.—A fine audience greeted the Harry Bloodgood troupe at Music Hall last evening, on the occasion of the benefit for the Maine General Hospital. It is needless to say that the performance was an excellent one,and scrupulously carried out, for this troupe always promises well, and always fulfills its promises. The “leap for life” by La Bello Celeste was a most extraordinary and terror-inspiring per formance by an extraordinary athlete, and was in itself well worth the price of admission. This evening a very fresh and attractive pro gramme will be presented; a programme that no lover of music and fun should fail to witness. The “leap for life” will be repeated, and the capital farces, burlesques and character songs, will be brought out in most amusing style. The prices of admission will be the same as on Sat urday night. Payson Litehahy Society.- The memoria exercises of the Payson Literary Society wer< ■ liela last evening at the Library Boom of lilt , Army and Navy Union, before the members E and a large number of invited guests. A , sketch of the history and purposes of the So j c‘etl’ was given by Bey. E. P. Thwiug, followed by an exceedingly interesting address upon th< f a,Rl character of the Eev. Edward Payson by President J. \v. Stevenson. The exercises , closed with brief and practical congratulatory . remarks by Kev. Dr. Carruthers. Two duets were performed during the evening in a very 1 pleasing manner by Mrs. Chase and Miss Mum 1 ger. The first public exercises of this vouuj and vigorous society were a very flattering sue cess, and it is to be congratulated upon th< promising career before it. [ This afternoon at 2J o’clock, F. O. Bailey 8 Co. sell to the trade a large line of crockery di rectfrom the manufacturers; at 12 m., thi real estate No. 28 Adams St. Beard of Trade. A special meeting of the Board of Trade was holden at their rooms last evening, President T. C. Hersey, presiding. Records of the previous meeting were read and approved. The following gentlemen were elected mem bers:— Ja“es H. Smith, William A. Winship. Ed ward T. Patten, Daniel W. Ames, Micah Samp son, William W. Thomas, Jr., George E. 13. Jackson, E. T. Elden,James T. McCobb,Simon Cole. A communication was received from the Sec retary of the National Board of Trade, suggest ing the subjects to be discussed at the next meeting of the board. Referred to the board of managers. Mr. Shurtleff, from the committee ou ways and means, reported that Hon. W. W. Thomas had reduced the rent of the Board of Trade rooms S100 per annum. At the last meeting the subject of inviting the committee authorized by Congress to in quire into the subject of transportation of pro ducts aud commodities between the interior and the seaboard, was introduced. Last eve ning Mr. G. W. True stated that he had receiv ed a letter from Mr. Windom, chairman of the Senate committee, saying that they had not yet decided what places to visit, but would be happy to include this city in their tour. Mr. True then read the following paper: Mr. President,—Much earnest and consider ate attention has been given by this Board to the subject of cheaper transportation from the West and its consequent cheaper bread. Indi vidual ci izens and Boards of Trade have peti tioned, legislatures and city councils have me morialized the law-making power, and the President of the United States has urged upon Congress the immediate consideration of this important question, and it is at length moving in the right direction. The Judiciary Commit tees of both Houses during the last session were charged with the duty of investigating the powers of Congress in regulating commerce be tween the States with a view to ascertaining whether it has the right to regulate the rates of transportation, and to authorize the construc tion and operation of railroads passing into, or through two or more States. A bill was intro duced into the House. Decembertth, to provide for the speedy construction of a ship canal of large capacity around the Falls of Niagara, on the American side. On the lfith of December the Senate by a vote of 57 to 3 adopted a reso lution for the appointment of a committee of seven of their number on “Transportation Routes to the Seaboard.” Messrs. Windom (chairman), Sherman, Conkling, Ames, Lewis, Casserly and Norweod, were appointed. The subject was fully discussed at that time and it was admitted by all that the facilities for the interchange of commodities between the interi or and the seaboard are totally inadequate. On the closing day of the session the subject was again brought up iu the Senate. Messrs. Mitchell and Davis were added to the Commit tee and the following resolution was unanimous ly adopted: “Resolved, That the Committee on Transpor tation Routes, &c., be authorized to sit at such places as they may designate duriug the recess and to investigate and report upon the subject of transportation between the interior and the seaboard • that they have power to send for per sons, &c.” It is the declared purpose of the Committee to hold sessions at various points through the country, with the inteut to make thorough work in their investigations, to take evidence touching all que tions at issue between the peo ple and the transportation companies, from the leading officers of those companies who control the rates, and the leading business interests of the countrp. As the result of their labors, the committee will be able to place before Cougress in an au thentic form, the necessary information to en able it hereafter, if deemed practicable, to legislate on the subject without delay. In the issue of this investigation and the consequent legislation ui v/uugress, we nave a ueep aim abiding interest. We are consumers and want cheaper bread. We are carriers upon the sea and want more employment for our ships. Of the one hundred and fifty million bushels of wheat imported annually by Great Britain, we, with a surplus of nearly two hundred million bushels, without a market, are able to contrib ute only about ten per cent. And why? Be cause of the exhorbitant charges for internal transportation. It is the purpose of tne special committee to investigate the whole subject, as certain the extent of the evil complained of,and if possible recommend some specific remedy at the next session of Congress. Mr. Chairman, I offer for adoption by this Board the following resolutions: Resolved by the Board of Trade of the City of Portland, That we recognize the importance of the work imposed upon the special committee of the Senate on “Transportation Boutes to the Seaboard,” aud learn with lively satisfaction that the grave and important questions involv ed in the investigation upon which they are about to enter will have the careful and consid erate attention of Senators distinguished for their nroad statesmanship, practical knowledge of business affairs and devotion to the public interests. Resolved, That we most cordially invite the committee to include our ciiy in their tour of observation, and to hold a session of their board here at such ti me as they may be pleased to designate, pledging them, for ourselves and our associates, much valuable information upon the subject of their inquiry and a hearty wel come to our city. The subject was then discussed by several speakers, and the unanimous wish expressed that the committee could be induced to visit the city. Mr. Hersey said it would bring our city into more extended notice and our future pros pects are such that the visit would prove bene ficial. Mr. G. W. Woodman thought cheap trans portation one of the most important of sub jects—one of the true subjects of th„ day. After further remarks, it was ordered that a copy of the resolutions be forwarded to the com mittee. Mr. Hersey said that the subject of statistics in relation to our business and prospects had been brought to his notice frequently of late, and the necessity of some such information, to be furnished abroad, was very apparent, if for no other purpose than to counteract the impres sion which had been created in New York and other places, by men who called themselves cit izens of Portland, hut who were continually telling abroad that Portland was dead, that she had no importatious, no manufactures, aud lit tle jobbing business. Mr. Hersey said Portland is certainly progressing, and our population is rapidly increasing. The lumber business with in a few years has increased enormously. Mr. G. W. Woodman stated that moro dry goods were handled in the city last year than ever before, and every year added to the vol ume of business. He wanted the statistics pub lished. People from other cities are coming here and hiring our stores and building up our trade. The remarks of the several gentlemen show ed that all departments of trade and commerce were increasing, and the speakers held the most flattering views of our future prospects. On motion of Mr. Hersey, the following was adopted:— Voted, That this matter be referred to a com mittee of three, with power to make all the necessary arrangements to carry out the views expressed here. Messrs. True, Woodman and Pierce were ap pointed as the committee. The proposition in regard to harbor improve ments—to cut off the ends of wharves project ing beyond the harbor commissioner’s line, and building out others—came up, but owing to the lateness of the hour, the whole subject was laid over until the next meeting, and the board ad journed. ferry Village. By a special act of the last Legislature the County Commissioners of Cumberland county, on petition of one hundred of the legal voters of said county, were authorized to lay out and construct a ferry landing into tide waters in the city of Portland. In accordance with said act petitions are being circulated throughout the county. Some of the heaviest firms in Port land have already signed in favor of a landing. One hundred and fifty names are on the peti tions that has been circulated in this village. The petition will be presented at an early day, as the Commissioners are required by law to give thirty day’s notice to interested parties. As the justice of our cause is acknowledged by all those immediately interested, we are begin ning to hope that the day is not far distant when a permaneut ferry will be established. Saturday afternoon, as some workmen were taking down the Republican flag staff in front of the postofflee, one of the guys slipped and the mast fell across Sawyer street smashing all before it. About six feet of the top was brok en off. A sign board on the corner of J. H. & F. H. Harford’s was smashed into kindlings, and a four wheel baggage wagon reduced to a two wheel gig. Jamer Starap, who was tend ing the guy, showed good pluck. He held on until his hands were badly burned by the fric tion of the rope passing through them. Form nately no one was seriously hurt. Mr. John Brewer of this village has been assigned to the steamer Falmouth by the Cus

tom House department. Having the baggage inspected before the boat arrives in Portland facilitates the business so that passengers car make a connection with out-going railroad trains. —_____ A.

New York, April 7.—In the opening of the April term of the genera: sessions to-day, Re corder Hackett charged the jury in strong terms to deal severely with offenders against the usuary laws. He said: “Theft of industry and of regular profits by means of immoral and unlawful machinations of capitalists or moneyed institutions, ought to command your attention much more than ordinary larceny of the prison calender.

Supreme Court Decisions. The Supreme Court has decided in the case of Havener vs. Woodruff, that a promissory note given for a consideration in war bonds issued by the Arkansas secession convention is void and illegal. The Court also decided in the case of the United States vs. the Baltimore & Ohio Bailroad that it is not within the power of Con gress to tax the property of a municipal corpor ation, viz., the mortgages held by tl e city of Baltimore on said road for security of bonds is sued in the aid, and also that it was not the in tention of the Internal revenue laws to tax the property of such corporation. THE ATLANTIC. Proceedings of the Investigation. Third Officer Brady’s Testimony. Halifax, April 7.—The investigation was re sumed pursuant to adjournment, at ten o’clock this morning. The first witness called was Cornelius L. Brady, third officer. The first part of his testimony was simply a repitition of what has been previously printed. During his statement he produced a diagram of the inter nal arrangements of the ship, and showed that there was nothing to prevent the steerage pas sengers from getting on deck. To my knowl edge nothing was said or done to impede any of the passengers in coming on deck. The statement that has been made that there was is absurd and incorrect. The steerage passen gers were well acquainted with all the ways of ingress and egress. During the time that I was on the watch, she may have been going faster at times than at others, but the speed was pret ty uniform. I do not recollect what ihe speed was before we bore up, but it was increased after that. X don’t know what the speed was when the vessel struck. The captaiu did all that any officer could possibly do to save life. Cross-examined by Mr. Kitchie—The dead reckoning was always very accurate. During the first watch on that night, after we bore up for Halifax, the speed was from eleven to twelve knots per hour. The quartermaster generally tnrew the log under the superinten dence of the officer of the watch that was on duty. During my watch that night the log was thrown either by Quartermaster Speakman or Owens, and reported to me. In making up the distance run, as directed by the captain, a' twelve o’c'ock that night, I used the ‘ scrap log” and stated every time the log was thrown It\vas entered in the scrap log book, I was satisfied of its correctness and that tho dist inee was made up correctly. [The sailing directions of the Admiralty were here introduced and the sailing directions for the Nova Scotia coast pointed out to the court. It is related that Sambro light should be visible at a distance of twenty miles south cf Sambro. Soundings would give a depth of at least forty-five fatn oms.] I went down to the wreck in a tug boat on Thursday and last night, X saw the light (Sambro) from the tug and from the deck of one of the schooners, but when I got about quarter of a mile from the wreck, Pennant Point just shuts the light iu. I did not notice this fact so much last night as I did on Thursday night. The captain was. one of the most competent and efficient officers that I ever sailed with. 1 know that the provisions were inspected by government officers. Begarding Mr. Allen’s statement of the condition of the crew, I may state from my knowledge and experience of crews that that of the Atlantic was far better physically and fully as well disciplined as the SVGrE^G. Be-examined by Commissioner McDonald— me captain, bUC LUlOl UUIUCl ttUU ixijeinn. vwmm. the solar observations on Monday at noon, and we all agreed in our results. We had a well defined horizon. In estimating the deviation caused by the current I did not know its title course or force, hut the captain allowed for a northeast current. I do not know what rate of speed the captain allowed for the current I knew that the currents on this coast vary in force and directions. No means were taken to ascertain the force or direction, so far as I know The lookout men were stationed at numbers one aud two houses, and on the bridge on the opposite side to that on which the officer in charge stood. I do not know whether any one was sent aloft as a lookout At the close of his examination, Mr. Brady stated on oatli that the stories of robbing the dead that it has been attempted to contradict, are entirely true. He claims to be in a position to bo certain in this matter, having been on ground the entire time. The court then adjourned until 2.30 o’clock. The balance of the testimony is a mere repe tition of previous statements. Mere Radies Recovered. The divers at work to day report the vessel most awkwardly placed. Two of them went into No. 4 hatch, but found no light on upper deck. The passengers and cargo are so m.xed that the bodies can uot be got out. Two girls were found lying in their beds in the lower af ter steerage. Holes will be blown in the ship ta facilitate the recovery of bodies and cargo.— Eleven bodies were got to-day: 226 have been recovered. None of those found recently were cabin passengers. No Light at Cape Prospect. The reports in the press respecting the liglil at Cape Prospect being mistaken for that ol Sambro are false. There is no such light al Cape Prospect. Nobody on board the Atlantic saw any light in approaching tho coast. The Modoc*. Yreka, Cal., April 7.—Mr. Koseborougl reached Tule Lake Camp this morning. Or Friday the Commissioners met Capt. Jack ano other Modoc chiefs in council, when Gaptaiu Jack aud Schogan reiterated their dctermin - tion to remain in that country or they wou k a reservation in this State. Mr. Hoseb 8 thinks Capt. Jack is frightened and will sm render. The troops are closing around the Mo docs, — Sadden Oen«h. Thomas McMillan, the medical ol the expe dition, died suddenly in camp this morning.

IngcrsolTs Majority About 4000. The Legislature Close. 1 Hartford, Conn., April 8th.—Gen. Hawley runs about ItiOO ahead of the Republican State ticket in the district and is elected by about 1300 majority. Last fall lie had 033. Ingersoll is elected Governor by the |>ebl)lo by from 2000 to 3000. The Legislature will be close. Hartford county,with Hartland to hear from, gives Haven 11007, Ingersoll 9330, Smith. Tem perance, 283; Hawley for Congress l)77r>, Ken dall 8835. Hartford gives Ingersoll 433 majority over Haven and the temperauce candidate. The majority against Hawley in the city is only 23, a gain of 580 over last fall’s election. Hawley’s majority in the district will probably reach 1400. 1 At midnight the Evening Post has returns from 151) towns, which show opposition gains over last spring of 7 585, of which 1837 are for Smith, temperance candidate for Governor. Ingersoll’s majority will lie about 40U0. In the second Congressional district Kellogg has £55 majority, with four towns to hear from. In the first Congressional district Hawley has 1288 majority, with five towns to hear from, which gave a Republican majority last year of four. In the third Congressional district Stark weather is re-elected by about 1200 majority. In the fourth district Barnura, detn., has 124!) majority, with wo towns to hear from which gave a Democratic majority last year of 47. Middlesex comity gives Ingersoll, dem., a very small majority. Kellogg, rep., for Congr-ss, has about 300 majority iu this county. The county elects two Republican Senators, a gain of one. Later.—The Senate is probably 11 Republicans to 10 Democrats. The House will be very close, the chances being that it is Democratic by a small majority. Three Republican Congress men are elected; Hawley in the 1st. Kellogg in the 2d, and Starkweather in the 3d District. Barnum, Democrat, is elected in the 4th Dis trict. .Hunicipnl Election*. Cincinnati, O., April 7.—Election returns are coming in very slowly. The impression prevails among the Republicans that sufficient gains cannot be reasonably expected to secure the election of Davis, Republican for Mayor. Cleveland, O., April 7.—Charles Otis, cit izens caudidate, was elected Mayor by about 800 majority over Jno. Huntington, Republi can. The balance of the Republican ticket was elected. Columbus, O.. April 7.—The indications are that James G. Ball is elected Mayor. Anapolis, April 7.—The entire Republican ticket for Mayor, Recorder and four Aldermen were elected by majorities ranging from 100 to 350. Confession of Din. Workman. Chicago, April 7.—A private despatch says parties from Medona, 111., state that Mrs. Workman, wife of a Methodist Minister, has confessed the murder of Mrs. Hedges at Eure ka. She says she did it iu self defeuce. The general feeling is that Mrs. Workman was driv en franticc by the discovery of her husband’s too intimate relations with the widow Hedges, and in a fit of desperation killed the supposed cause of her domestic misery.

FOREIGN. The B London, April 7.—Tn the House of Commons this evening the Budget was presented by the Chancellor of the Exchequer. The floors were well filled with members and privileged per sons, and the galleries were crowded with spec tators. Mr. Lowe, on rising, was greeted with cheers. He proceeded to make his statements of the budget,and said that the government had some propositions to make. It had to provide for the Geneva award and proposed to pay half of the amount out of the revenue of the present year without the addition of a penny to taxa tion. He next surprised the House by an nouncing tha Government was enabled to pro pose a reduction of fifty per cent, in the duty on sugar, and to take oil a penny from the tax on incomes. 5 r. Fawcette complained of what he termed a cowardly way of partly paying the Alabama claims by borrowing from the income tax and from sugar and other duties. The budget was approved pro forma and the House adjourned till April 21st. MINOR TELEGRAMS. The Republicans have carried the municipal election in Nantes and Marseilles, France.
