THE NEW REGIME. Cor ^ete List of the New Rulers 6 jjof the Metropolis. Major Htnmajir'i Appointment*?The Commit ?t<mi ?nii Board*?Twins of Office and Sala ries of tho law Official*?Jottings About tho City Hall?Tho Po lioe Justice ? Appointment*? A Municipal Marriage. Tho vicinity of the City Hall waa extremely dnll ma& uninteresting yesterday and there was a plead ing lack o/ place hunters about the Mayor's office. Among those who called on the Mayor yesterday were Mr. James Kelly, his intimate irlend and counsellor; Superintendent George W. Matsell, Simon Stern, Comptroller Green and some other prominent gentlemen, including a number of the new Commissioners. The Mayor had a large ?mount of business on hand, however, much of i t relating to the appointment of Police Justices, which will be "the sensation" probably by the end ?f the present week. Applications for appointments ?till continue to pour in, and the Mayor, it is said, lias received upwards of three handred already. Some of them come backed up by petitions la behalf of tbe applicant, bearing three or four hun dred signatures. As usual, the Mayor keeps his owa counsels, and It is absurd to speculate as to Who the lortunate appointees are to be. Tbe Mayor found time, however, in the pressure of his more austere duties to perform A MARRIAGE CEREMONY for a young German couple, and the ceremony, tbongh plain and brief, was very interesting. The bridegroom was a youag man of perhaps twenty four years, John August Hoffman by name, and the bride a comely peach blonde, of about nineteen? Miss Rese Gassmann. The wedding took place in the anteroom of the Mayor's private office, and was witnessed by two friends of the parties and several gentlemen of the press and clerical at taches of the office. As the Mayor concluded the simple rltnal he shook hands with the wedded pair and said, "and now 1 wish you long, happy and prosperous lives," and the husband and wife went uieir way. The following la a list of officers of THB PRESENT MUNICIPAL GOVERNMENT and of all the nominations, except these for City Marshals, made under the new charter, together with the terms of office and salaries. The officers ami boards marked with asterisks are those that retain office by virtue of election or by assumption of oince prior to January 1,1873, and who were not legislated out by the new charter. The County Court House Commissioners and the Commissioner of Jurors are deemed to be county officers, and for that reason have not been confirmed, as It Is deemed likely that it is not the province of the Aldermen to confirm county officials only when Bitting as a Board of Supervisors THE MUNICIPAL EXECUTIVE.

There are yet to be appointed Two Commissioners of Accounts, at $3,000 per annum each. , , ? _ Also a Commissioner of Parks In place of F. E.

THE BOARD OF POLICE JUSTICES, ten in number, are to be appolntedunder a special tew, which fixes no time wlthtn wMch the nomina tions are to bo made. An opinion has obtained aome currency that within ten days of the pas sage of the act, the President of the Board of Al derman shall cause the Clerk of the Board person Ally to serve, aa goon iu poMitHe,jk written notice npon each member of the Board and upon the Mavor, which notice shall appoint a reasonable day of meeting, not more than ten nor less than Beven days from the date of such notice; that the Mayor's nominations for police Justices shall be addressed to the Clerk of the Board not less than three days beiore any such meeting for mak ing appointments, and that the Clerk shall forth with serve a copy of such nominations upon each of the Aldermen. Yesterday afternoon a Herald reporter called anoa Mayor Havemeyer in his private office, and asked His Honor whether such was a trne lnter Ahf?iet?meesee," replied the Mayor, "I have fceard some rumors of that sort, and I have Just J>een iodklfiff J NP? * ^"rUfled copy of the law, and I have not been able to And I any provision as to the time In which the nomlna tiona are to be made. You can look over thin your self and see whether there la any such provision." The reporter took the copy or tte law and read It carefully from its title to the certification, but could fiud no such provision, nor, Indeed, any thing which seemed to limit tne time of nomina | tiODB. BOARD OF EXCISE. Disorderly Houses M It All Closed Up. I The Commissioners of Excise have at length finished their preparations for business, and are now in a position to proceed in the work of the department. One of the principal things that in terfered with their action upon all the applications before, to this was the measure introduced into the Legislature by Senator Tiemann. The bill Is for the purpose of giving to the Commissioners the power of revoking licenses upon testimony tliat the parties holding them were not conducting their business in a reputable and respectable manner. Under the old system a person receiving a license could defy the Board In the management of his affairs, and the Commlssloneis were com pelled to see him abuse the privilege granted and allow him to keep open house for any class of patrons he shose to cultivate. During an Interview with a I1erai.i> reporter yes terday Commissioner Marshall said tne new Board was anxious to proceed gradually. One of their first steps was to introduce a system into the Depart ment that would facilitate its operations and enable them at any time to see the standing and charac ter of people holding licenses. "Of course," he said, "the old Board had an organized plan: but we were anxions to adopt one of our own and we are now ready. The pollcc have propared for us a set of books wnlch give the location and business features of all the liquor saloons In the city, but we are now having an inspection made of these same places, and when our men have reported, we shall be In a better position to judge of the accuracy or the details sent us by the police. The principal object we have in view is to conduct the department In a manner satisfactory to the people, and we shall try to get as much moral control over the men engaged In tills commerce as possible." "Do you expect, Mr. Commissioner, to use the corrective authority given you by Senator Tie mann's blU to any extent)"' asked the reporter. "Well, we can't say Just yet to what lengths we shall have to go, but yon may rest assured we shall do everything possible to clear away obnoxious and dangerous Influences. 1 do not believe In very stringent ruling, and I think I express the spirit ol the Board when 1 say we shall do nothing unjust or harsh, bat where we find cause to deprive a man of the opportunity of injuring public morality we shall not hesitate t? carry out the law. I have been a temperance man all my life, yet 1 do not on that account object to other men enjoying themselve in the use of liquors if they find pleasure that way. My house contains all sorts of wines and spirits, and, although 1 do not use them myself, I always treat my irlends and visitors." "Then, 1 suppose, Mr. Commissioner, the policy or the Board will no of a more liberal character than many people are Inclined to anticipate r" "That is exactly the Idea, sir, we are Impressed with. People who are inclined to conduct business In a proper manner will receive every assistance from us; but those who will not listen to advice and won't respect the law cannot expect to be tolerated. We will make some slight differ ence In the prices or the best licenses In accordance with the section In the bill just passed, and we will, probably, begin to issue licenses or this class during the coming wee*. We are in no hurry as you see. We want to go on quietly, sys tematically and steadily." "Your method of issuing licenses is to be a very sate one, I understand ?" "It is; and, jealously guarded from ^ny at tempts at fraud, our licenses will be something like bank checks?numbered and bearing on the lace all the particulars of the case. The stubs there will be three of them remaining with us? wUl contain all the facts stated in the license proper, and we shall be able to refer at any mo ment to them lor lnlormatlon." "Yon have not touched the Sunday question yet." "Not openly. We have discussed that question among ourselves pretty thoroughly; but our deter mination will not be given to ttie public for some few days yet. Yon see, our time has been so com pletely taken up with the cares of organization, that we have been obliged to leave some important matters lor the moment undecided." THE REFOBM ASSOCIATION. Important Resolutions on Rapid Tran sit?The City to Construct m Rail road, and the Question To Re Submit ted to tk? People at the Next Election? A Comptroller To Re Sleeted Instead of Appointed?A Sharp Debate. Tbe Executive Committee of the Reform Associa tion met last evening at the Filth Avenue Hotel. There was some dlffioulty in procuring a quorum, and the meeting did not organize until past nine o'clock. Mr. Foley, the Chairman, saidIn com pliance with your direction this Executive Com mittee has been called together this evening to reorganize the "Reform Association" and some other Important business which your attention will be called to during our deliberations. As you are aware, many important changes have recently occurred in our city govern ment, tbe effect of which is certain to advance tbe great work we have In band. The great power vested by the new charter in Mayor Havemeyer has been exercised on the whole well; his nominees are a va*t Improvement upon their predecessors. Home of them, it is true, are untried In the parti cu lar sphere assigned to them, hut taking their past record we are justified In looking for an efficient ad ministration. At any rate, give them a fair trial, tnree months hence will determine the question with justice to all concerned. We must not rest with what has been accomplished. We must take a new departure and press on for still greater im provements. Combined action Is absolutely neces sary to retain the beneflts we secured and insure the gTeater advantage* we desire. RAPID TRANBIT is without question tbe greatest necessity or our people and city at this moment. Prompt action must be taken here to-night to apply at once to the Legislature to pass an act giving Mayor Havemeyer power to nominate five commissioners and to sub mit to the votes of the people at our November election the question of bonding the clt.v to pay the expense. We have waited too long for specula tors. A thotough enrolment of all the reform voters in every Assembly district in the city should be had wlthott delay. These and other Important matters were fully discussed at onr recent meeting and I have to hope are luily provided tor by the committee tben appointed on resolutions, which re port will now be In order. Mr. Koi.ry then offered the following important resolutions:? Whereas the true lnter?<rtn of the ?lty of New York have not been sufficiently considered in training the former charters, which have been created mainly with a view to strengthen ruling political parties, and whereas sight has been lost thereby of the tact that the city of New York Is a commercial metropolis, which utwer wise legislation Is destined to become the central point of the commerce of the world ; thoretor be It Resolved, That we, representing the reform voters of tbe city of New York, respecttully ask the Legislature to pass the following bills tending to secure the sell-govern ment of the city 1. To authorize the Governor to appoint a commission, consisting of ten leading citizens or the city of New York, who (hall draft a charter to be submitted to the suffrages of the cltlsens of the city of New York, which charter, when adopted, shall he s permanent charter. 2. That tbe present charter be so amended that the municipal elections be held In the Spring of tbe vear separate Item political elections, 3. To consolidate the city and county of New York. 4. To restore to the people of the city ol New York the right to elect s Comptroller. ft. Also to pass an act to provide for rapid transit, be tween Harlem and the City Mall, at the expense of the citv, giving the Mayor, subject to the approval of the Board of Aldermen, power to appoint Ave commissioners to carry the same into effect, and that the question of bonding the citv to pay the same be submitted to tbe peo ple at the next November election. Mr. Sbwarim moved to strike out the clause as to the election of a comptroller. Mr. Foley said that all the other county officers are elected; that the present incumbent felt as sured of his popularity, and would be able to test it; that the people could be relied on In electing good officers, instead of allowing so great an office to be an appolntod one; that as long as people were elected by the people they behaved well. The appointing power was a tremendous responsibility and worked badly. Mr. J. D. Williamson thought that the contrary was the case and that the people elected the worst men. That only about twenty per cent of the popu lation were taxpayers, and that the people who paid the least taxes were those who grabbed the charities. Yes, these people were voters, and could be easiiv led to support bad men. Much men sup ported Mr. Tweed and carried htm on In power. We bold Mr. Havemeyer responsible for his appoint ments, and he will be sure to make good ones. Mr. KoKHi.iRsaid that two years ago had not Mr. Connolly been afraid ?of the people, he woold not have smuggled himself Into the Frear charter for appointment. This anpolnting of the whale na .. m?nar<3hical, not republican. The people P?w. L^.fUartes.Of tbe appointees, and they ought ^,e Prtvl'ege of choosing them. ?Jk ... ,,ar(U' amendment the meeting voted to have the eomptrollersnlp an electiveToffice, and the remainder or the resolutions were passed with out trouble. A committee on reorganization was then ap pointed, consisting of the following gentlemen Oswald Ottendorler, Robert B. Roosevelt, John Foley, Myer tttern, Thomas J. Crombie, Patrick ThonJ.Mt> ? f^eeborn, Jacob Schoenhof, J. D. Williamson,JC W. Townsend, Ham. D. Howards. WAGHER, THE ISLE OF 8H0AL8 MURDERER. Alfrbd, Me., May 94,1878.

Interesting Interview with the Hew Siperintendent of Police on the Situation. OLD STORIES. Thieves To Be Cleaned Oat of the City and Defectives Set to Work. To the ordinary observer the scene at Police Headquarters for the past few days presented many curious features for study. The office-holder in every type of varied human nature hung about the place. His lounging, waiting manner became so engrafted on the neighborhood that the very air felt impregnated with it. Sometimes he wan long and lean, but oftenerlBtout and stinted. Be was always well dressed and constantly ate tobacco. The attitude of the man was as diversified as his build or the cut of his hair. At times he would rest his body on a corner or his back against a doorpost or railing. He now and again condescended to stand on his legs, having his hands In his trousers pockets, but the general (and it appeared to be the favorite) posi tion, was a half lying, reclining against the walls. Occasionally he waH talkative, but generally more given to silence than garrulity. His wardrobe was the most astonishing thing about him. Is was al ways of the very best quality, of the very first cut, and marvellously free from dust or soil. It was staggering, too, from the fact that ALL TBS PATRIOTS so anxious to serve their country and the rest of itp inhabitants presented the same well clad, com fortable air. There was a universality about their outline that was strikingly remarkable. No mat ter what the emoluments of the office they filled or were anxious to jump into were, they employed a first rate tailor and evidently engaged him a good deal. Art certainly appeared to play a prominent part In the make up of the enthusiasts, but when one arrived at their physiognomies he found him self entirely oat of the esthetic influences and face to face with very vulgar human nature. To be sure embellishment had done all it possibly could for the countenances, but it fell very far short of making them beautiful or even attractive. The too much shaven jaw looked like the barber, the over dyed moustache proclaimed him, and the oiled-to-wetness of the hair spread an aroma of him that wal anything but pleasant. Nothing conld better indicate the exact position of each public man than the expression of his face. The thin, hungry and nervous one is looking for office, and the fat, busy, chatty, grab every-body fellow Is making or trying to make combinations that will enable him to re tain the place he has already. The first instalment of the political aspirants who have crowded so thickly about Police Headquarters during the past three days was mainly composed of those in office and desirous of remaining. The names of the new Commissioners had not then been made public, and they were hurrying to the old Board to swear allegiance and call to mind their friendship in case any of the members should be able to keep in power. Then there was the dim shadowing of the disappointed and the mournin? and wailing of the K1CKCU OUt. PARCELS WERE PACKED, and they stole stealthily away from the sceae of their pretended greatness. Several of the dispos sessed crept slyly away to tilde their diminished and chopped-olT heads in a well-merited obscurity; but Judge Bosworth would not follow their ex ample. He procured a coach?probably to take a ride for the last time at the expeuse of the Depart ment?packed up his cumbrous luggage on It and started. As he was going the Fire Marshal went to the door of the conveyance and said :? "Goodby, Judge." "No, sir; I'm not going?how dare yon?I'm coming back here," returned the grim caricature of the Father of His Country, and he was driven away. He did not stay long, however, for he was the first visitor to Superintendent Matsell's office yesterday morning. He remained there some time in close conversation with the celebrated superin tendent, and then left as the throngs of friends en tered to pay their respects to Mr. Matseil, He re mained at his office until alter midday and then left on some Important business of the Department. In the coarse of the morning Inspector Waiting stood by the Superintendent's desk and Introduced the various captains who were not already known as tbey went In. This levee-over, the Superintendent made a tour of the building and then went out. He returned to the office in the afternoon and a reporter or the Herald had an interview with him. The Superintend ent sat in his chair with the qniet self-possession of a gentleman thoronghly at home. He has a re markably pleasant, Intelligent face, ami he treats visitors with the urbanity and politeness of a man ot the world. "Mr. superintendent," began the reporter, "you seem to be already complete!? in business." "I am, sir," he answered. "Why, I feel as if I had only gone Into the country lor a couple of months or so. You see, everything is so familiar and natural to me that 1 could not well feel other wise. Here I am surrounded by the old boys (pointing to Inspector Waning, who stood beskle him), and they know my ways so well that there la no necessity for any breaking in. I have tried them and lound them all right, bo that now I can rely upon and trast them." "You have been made the subject of a good deal of public discussion, sir?" "Oh, I expected that. I am a public man once more, and people nave a right to talk about me. Some of the things I have heard abont myself are certainly very amusing, and I'm glad of it; lor a man wants all the rational and Innocent enjoy ment he can get in this life. A great many well intentioned people insist I am somewhere in the neighborhood or two centuries old, and that la a good sign, for it brings respect; but, as far as I know myself, I will be sixty-one next October, and I am not quite sure that I am not stretebing that one year. Now, that's probably owing to my mod esty : but, then, I was always a bashful sort of fel low." "You certainly wear your age well." "Now, don't If Quite a good jet about here yet (putting his hand over his head), and some people who don't know mo will And out before I'm much older I am not quite so black by nature as many or my friends would paint me. It is remarkable the amount of intelligence a man picks up in the course of a lifetime. I'm learning something every day. This morning I ascertained 1 was foreign horn. Now, I have always taken my mother as an author ity on that question, and when she informed me I first saw the light in thia good city of New York I "Have you issued any orders to the force yet, Mr. Mutseilf" "Ah I now you're getting at me In police mat ters. I never was mnch of a hand at talking on those subjects except to the boys, (pointing to In spector Walling;) but there are some times little things I don't mind telling to members of the press confidentially, you know, because I am a Journalist myself." "I should lice to knew what your first order wast" "Well, as you have put it that way, I'll tell fou. When 1 was leaving here last night sent out my first erder since my return from the country (yon nnderstand), and that was to call me up If anything occurred during the night, no matter what the hour was. That used to be a standing order of mine when I was here before, you know, and I Intend to keep it as a standing order now. My age wont come much in the way. I'm not a lean and gone-In-the-shank old fellow, but a rather robust, lively chap, and maybe I shall get around this town yet too briskly for some of the community?may be, you know?for we never can tell what's ahead of us." "You are, Indeed, a wonderful contrast to some of the pictures describing yon." "Well, that makes the pleasure of meetjng gen tlemen like yourseir, who come to me for the first time, all the greater, lint come olten ami look at ua. Yon should watch ne. We all want looking alter, and if you keep your eyes open you will l>e astonished at the number of tricks we old fellows are capable of. To be candid with you, I can scarcely tell when I was young, for they called me "Old Matseil" five and twenty years ago?perhaps before that?the old this and the old that. It was always the same thing. I got accus tomed to it, and 1 like It. That sort of thing was constantly flying around the town almost as rapidly as I could locomote myself." "They bring a charge against von, Mr. Superin tendent, that you violated the law when in office t)?fOT6. "I know they do, but its like many other of the pretended complaint* against me?without much foundation. The whole affair did not la*t five minutes, and if I had not stepped in when I did and In the way I (lid this town wonld have been In a state of commotion never before or since seen In it. At the time of that oceurrence our Governor's name was King. There was a good deal of conten tion among certain of our prominent officials here, and in my wanderings to probe the depth of the dissatisfaction 1 stumbled on a bodv of conspirators who were thoroughly organised and magnificently armed?I know this, for I had all the weapons in my possession afterwarda?and who were provided with badges npon which was printed "No Kino." Falling so suddenly upon such a se cret bana as that made me open my eyes, I can tell you, and I did not shnt them for some time either, but kept quietly watching the movements of the body. Pretty soon tbe trouble dewn town be came hot, and finally an order of arrest was issued frt the MaWj Now, l den t oare atapl the am. It makes no difference to me who la in the chair, but 1 look upou the Mayor of the city or New York as the most prominent gentleman In the commu nity, and 1 felt at that time It was my duty to protect Mm from Indignity. The Mayor is next to the Governor In prominence, and after him to the President, ana I don't know but In our affairs he is more Important than either. Well, 1 objected to his being arrested. There were several otner ways of settling the difficulty besides putting the Mayor into custody, and I was tiylng to throw a little oil on the troubled waters when the crista came. Still, duty Is dutv and cannot be shirked. 1 was never much of a man for getting out of the way when work was to be done, ana If matters were fined down to such a point I would proceed unhesitatingly to my labors. On the day the light took place they were talking so mucn about 1 bad an interview with an official in the City Hall, and was Just leaving that bolldlng when the bloody work was sprung upon me. Weil, I Jumped in ana took a hand. It Just lasted about live min utes and everything cooled down. Now, as a friend or mine says, instead of abasing me for that they ought to give me oredlt for it. But that's the way of the world." ??They say the Seventh regiment waa called out?" ??That's another error. A portion of the regi ment was on its way to Boston at the time, and they happened to pass Jnst as I had toned down the little ebullition. Colonel Dnryee, who is now a member of the Police Board, came towards me and complimented me, and the boys passed on their way after a salute." "Is there anything, Mr. Superintendent, In police matters that Is at this moment specially engaging your attention ?" "Well, yes; the whole Police Department la Just now receiving my most direct consideration. But then it in very plain sailing. We do everything according to rule; the regulations and discipline of the Department are laid down and nothing is left for us but to follow them. Of course, I shall Bee they are attended to. I don't Intend to sit twirling my thumbs myself, Mid you can under stand I won't tolerate It in any one else. A policeman should be alwayB on the alert, ever watchful and ready, and shonM keep at all tlmeB before his mind the one Idea or doing his very best in his place. The most capable officers should have the most consideration, and should be made to feel their services are properly considered. No man can come to mo with a better card than a good record, and I shall not be slow. I promise you, to find out who deserve well of the Department. Toadyism and flattery are two accomplishments I do not admire, and the people whcrwlll approach me must be bad Judges of human nature ?f they adopt such means to win my esteem." immediately alter the interview Mr. Matsell left the building. He gave some orders to the Night inspector, McDermott, and then passea out. Con siderable excitement exists among the detectives, but it ia not likely many of these officers will be dis turbed. It is understood, though, that a general clearing of thieves fa to take place, and the de tectives will In future be responslbe to their cap tain directly, and will not be furnished with any excuses about the Inspector or Super intendent to shirk their work. These little private Jobs the captain will know all about, and the Superintendent will look to him that the public are satisfied with the officers. It is ru mored that Ned Moore, who was Roadmaster under Connolly and Tweed, Is to be placed at the head of the street Cleaning Bureau. Harry Genet is urging his appointment, but it has not yet gone to the Board. The next few da.vs will probably bring about a great many changes, and 1b well known to the office-seekers, for they are more than ordinarily watchful. THE STATE CAPITAL.

An amendment, moved by Mr. Johnson, fixing the timeB for the County i Treasurers te pay taxes to the Comptroller, one half on the 16th of April and one-half on the 1st of May, was adopted. Mr. Benedict moved to in crease the appropriation for the new Capitol from $1,000,000 to (1,600,000. Lost. On motion of Mr. J. Wood, |l,ooo was inserted for General W. 8.

Yonr committee do not deem It necessary to go into all the charge* in detail, but to report only anil briefly on those deemed moat material, which are contained in the petition of mgphen English, and wtui!b contuuMe the chief element of the ubet, if any ha* been com mitted, upon President Wiuston, and to submit for your consideration the conclusion* at which the commitr tee have arrived. . . , The charge that surrendered and forfeited policies on the life ot ('resident Winston'* ion bad been revived after his death was proven to be true. All the policies alluded to had been snriendered and paid for, or forfeited for non-payment ot premiums, nearly two years before his death, and were revived after death to the extent of $11,00(1. The deceased win appears to have been an effi cient and popular young officer, and worthy to have been properly considered : but the restoration ot the policies in the manner aad under the circumstances which it was done was, in tho optnionof your committee, a wrong npon the other petlcy-holders of the company which the offi cers and trustees should not have committed and for which they may bo Justly censured. The illegal purchase, at a higher rate than its surrender valuo. of a policy upon the life of a trustee; Its xubwquent restoration when he was actually moribund and its pay ment as a death claim, was proven. The transaction ap Sara to have been without the knowledge or sanction of e Insurance Committee or the Board of Trustees, and the whole responsibility appears to rest upon President Winston, and the evidence afTordcd to your committee no ground upon which such a palpable violation of official duty can be justified. The manner and apparent object of the purchase of some other policios were such as your committer could not approve, but as they are of minor lmportauce tiiey need not be more fully noticed. The distribution of a bonus of over $189,000 among the officers of the company, in addition to their ample sala ries, and ite concealment from the policy-holders by charging far the greater portion of It to "dividend ac count, " was proven to be true. WhUe your committee fully approve tho giving of liberal compensation for ser vices of faithful officers, thev hold that such compensa tion should be so given that it may bo received as a re ward, without operating as corruption, and that in this view the "tonus" distribution and its concealment from the policy-holders are deserving of serious condemna tion. Some loan* and advance* were made by President Winston In an unauthorized and Irregular manner, but no loss appears to have been thereby Incurred by tho policy holders, and, but for their Irregularity aad the misrepresentation by which it was attempted to conceal them?naturally beget ting suspicion of wrong intent, these loan* would probably never have been made the subject of ad vene criticism and censure. The use made by President Winston unofficially ot over $18,000 in payment of dratts of agents ot this Stale In 18M has been severely criticised and as warmly defended on the score of its necessity and patriotic motive, but in Hie opinion of your committee, the facts and attending cir cumstances disprove Its necessity and Invalidate the plea of patriotism and show it to have been an undoubted vio lation of the charter, and an unwarrantable use of trust fuuds by President Winston to serve his personal friends. Considerable sums of money are shown to have been expended and charged as taxes, office rent, counsel fees, Ac., about which there fairly exists the suspicion of their Improper use to influence legislation at Albany and elsewhere; and of which the unauthorized payment by President Winston of $<1,1100 to Ueorge W. Miller, the then Superintendent ot the lnsnr anee Department, to further the so called "Miller Life Bill," is a notable example, which called forth that just and merited rebuke contained in the report of the Insur ance Committee of this House in April, 18T2, and some of which gave rise to the controversy between the president and the actuary, under whose direction the distribution of dividends haa been acceptably made for many yours, during which the company had attainectaf* great position and about whose capacity and lutegHty no question seems ever to have arisen until the will ot the president was opposed by the actuary under a sense ot duty, which caused the withholding of the usual form of audit to the company's statement of account, which were known to be Incorrect. No evidence was adduced to sustain the cliargc ot an imposition upon borrowers of unlawful and oppressive rates oi Interest, and It Is, therefore, dismissed. The collection of proxies by President Winston and Vice President McCurdy, through the agents or the com pany, under their direction, In numbers amply sufficient to secure absolute control over the election of trustees, is proven, and its justification attempted on the ground of its necessity to thus guard against the intrusion ot' un fit trustees. But to this your committee wholly dissent, perceiving in such a practice a lar greater danger to the policy-holders in thus empowering the officers to select the trustees at will, thereby virtually making the officers the masters, instead of the ser vants of the policy-holders, who do not seem to have fully comprehended that the char ter of the company, in giving them the right, imposed upon them the duty to elect the trustees without defer ence to the will or wishes of the officers of the company, and thus to maintain and direotly exercise the power to correct and remedy detective or unfaithful management of Its affairs. The charges above alluded to constitute the gravamen of the alleged libels by the petitioner, Euglish, upon president Winston, and your committee tcel it incunioeut upon them to slate that whilst the petitioner, English, has been guilty of intemperate and harsh criticisms upon President Winston, others who have not beeu molested, have, in language more temperate, but with even greater soverlty, publicly arraigned President Winston npon the same charges; and as there is much foundation in truth In the allegations of the petitioner, hnglish, it is improbable that a jury would award President Winston damages at all commensurate with the enormous amount which he claims to have sustained, and that, therefore, the ball required of the petitioner, English, is excessive and op pressive; Uiat bis imprisonment Is a just cause of griev ance and a proper subject for relief. And lurther. that as it Is apparent to your committee that while President Winston is nominally the plaintiff in the suit, the pro ceedings are in fact conducted by and at the expense of the Mutual Life Insurance Company, thereby showing that personal liberty may be abridged and unjust and Illegal punishment Inflicted through forms of laws by a {iowertul corporation arrayed against an individual, and n the opinion of your committee demonstrating the ne cessity of such legislation npon the law ot' libel as will prevent the Infliction of punishment until guilt has been clearly established. And your committee would respectfully recommend the immediate pnssage of Assembly bill No. 1,084, entitled "An act in relation to orders of arrest in actions to re cover damages for slander or libel, or on a promise to marry." Ail of which is respectfully submitted. C. W. HERHICK, Chairman. E. 8. WIIALEN, N. A. WHITE, E. TOWN SEND. TROTTING AT FLEETWOOD. The purse of (100 for horses that had never beaten three mlnntes, announced to come off at Fleet wood Park on Friday, but postponed on account of the weather, was decided yesterday afternoon. Entered for this event were John Murphy's black mare Molly, Icaac Paulding's black mare Lady Knox, Benjamin Wilson's bay mare Lottie, and William E. Weeks' gray gelding Grand Central. The latter was withdrawn. There were but few In attendance, yet all took a great interest In the result. Before the race Molly was the favorite, and though she acted badly and was nearly distanced m the first heat, continued to sell first choice until the third heat, when her friends reluctantly dropped her as a poor investment. Lottie, a road horse, be longing to Mr. G. V. Joiiusou, won the first heat in 2:37, but the second, third and fourth were scored by Lady Knox, winning the race much te the satisfaction of those lew who bougut her very low In the pools. A thunder shower came up between the first and second heats, and continued through the latter, which made the track very heavy and drenched the drivers to the skin. John L. Doty was put behind Lottie in the third heat, but it was of little or no service. The Judges 01 the day were' Messrs. Shaw, Van Ness and Ifarbeck. SUMMARY. Fijibtwood Park, Morrisania, N.

President Grant's Determination in the Matter of Departmental Reform. COCKBURN AND CUSHING. England'! Chief Justice ti Reply to the At tack of the Geneva Counsel. Expected Arrival In Washington of the Rio Grande Commissioners. Washington, May 24, 1873. Meeting of the Cabinet with the Civil Serrlce.Advlsory Board. Tbe President convened the Cabinet this morn ing, at ten o'clock, to meet tbe members of tbe Civil Service Advisory Board and talk over civil service reform. All the Cabinet officers, except Secretary Robeson, and five members of the Hoard were present. The President said the meeting was ln> formal and to put the heads of departments and the members of the Board en rapport. A geaeral discussion then followed, all present having some thing to say. The President renewed his assurance I chat he was In earnest and willing to carry Into effect any plan approved by tbe Board, congress man Hheilabarger frankly stated that be was more In sympathy with reform after bearing the President's i declaration and what progress had already been made, and was glad to know the Cabinet was a ?nit on the subject. Tbis brought out Secretary Richardson, who briefly stated his views, m gathered from practical experience, at the head of the department having the greatest number of em ployes in important positions. For departmental , work proper bere In Washington his suggestion was distribution of appointments among the States according to population; competitive examination, us now, with special -regard to the ability of the contestants for the positions to toe filled, character and education?In a word, what any merchant at the head of a great house would do in the selec tion of employes. He was glad to say the system proposed by him did not contemplate any political Interference, and be would be glad If tbe system was adopted. Nothing was definitely a?reed upon, but it was tbe opinion of the members of the Cabinet, as well as the Advisory Board, that the appointments in departments should be distributed over the ceun try. The result of the Interchange of views, whicb was harmonious fn evory respect, will be embodied in the plan to be drafted at their meetings next week, and submitted to the President for approval. It can be positively stated that Secretary Rich ardson's plan will be the basis of the proposed re vision. Sbellabarger Is more zealous than ever In his determination to give tbe reform his best energy. Sir Alexander Cockbarn to Reply to Cashing'* Book. It Is understood that Chief Justice Cockburn will reply to the book written by Caleb Cushing in the same spirit, and give his views of Adams and the American Counsel. Cushing will again reply; and It is said by one or our Counsel- at Geneva that Cashing has plenty of unused material with which to remind John Bull of the determination not te agree to the decision of the majority ol the arbi trators. The only thing regretted by Cushing's associates is bis attempt to belittle Cockburn'a ability. The Mexican Border Commissioner* Ex* pec ted In Washington Shortly. Advices received here to-day state that Colonel T. P. Robb, General T. Osborn and Major R. II. Savage, comprising the Commission Investigating depredations and disorders on the frontier, will ar rive In this city on Jane 3. The Commission has visited nearly the entire extent of the Mexican* Texas line, and taken evidence at many points. The health of the party is good, bat they have en countered many exciting adventures. Some time since, while in camp on the Rio Orande, above Fort Mcintosh, one of the Commissioners, Major Savage, was attacked by what was supposed to ba a large specimen or a Mexican lion, which made a desperate charge at him, but which was shot by the sergeant of the escort before the Major was seriously injured. On one occasion one of the Commissioners was attacked by one of the dangerous lizards peculiar to Texas and Northern Mexico, but succceded in shooting It before being bitten by the reptile. Nothing is said in the letters received about the recent battle with the Kickapoos, but they state that unless authority Is given the military commanders te follow and punish predatory bands on Mexican soil, the constant ruids and robberies cannot be stopped without a force large enough to guard the entire line from the Oulf to B1 Paso Del Norte. The Atlantic National Bank Paying Up. The Comptroller of the Currency has received such information from the receiver of the Atlantic National Bank as to whrrant the statement that In a few days a dividend of forty per cent will be declared, and that in a few weeks another oi the same amount Will be declared, while the filial set tlement will bring the dividend very close to 100 per cent. Affairs In iionlslana. The Attorney General this morning received a despatch stating that the Supreme Court of Louisi ana has just decided two cases of contest for ortlce under the intrusion act, and in both cases the legality of the officers holding office under the Kellogg government was sustained. It is also said that the opposition In Louisiana are dissatisfied with Senator Carpenter's speech. The Minister to Colombia. William L. Scruggs, Minister to the United states of Colombia, Is here en route to Uogota. He re ceived instructions to-day and sails from New York next week. Mr. Scruirgs Is from Georgia, a native of Kast Tennessee, and former editor of the At antic ?to Km. He was a rebel daring the war. A Railroad Land Squabble. The Secretary of the Interior has overruled the application of the McGregor and Missouri River Railroad Company for the reversal of his decision recently rendered against the said company and in favor or the St. Paul and Sioux City Railway Com* pany, involving the title to certain lands covered by overlapping land grants. The Northern Paclte Railroad Company has filed with the Secretary of the Interior maps shewing the deflntte location of its road between the Red River of the North and the Missouri River. This ? a formality to secure the permanent withdrawal of the lands on this portion of the route granted to the company. Signal Station on Pike's Peak. The Secretary of War, at the request of Professor Hayden, has ordered a signal statien to be estab lished on the summit of Plke'a Peaic. A Treasury Correction. The report that the Secretary of the Treasury has ordered the transfer of $2,000,000 ol gold from San Francisco to Washington Is untrue. There is no need of bringing government gold from San Fran cisco or of sending greenbacks there. On the con trary the Treasury to short of greenbacks, and as the government has accommodations for to,000,000 or gold in San Francisco, wnere now there are only some $4,500,000, and the new greenbacks In circulation on the Pacific coast do not require replacement, no present probability exists of any transfer being ordered either way.
