550,000, would suffice to cover 113,147
square yards. There ars 85 acre3 in the
City Hall Park, or about 40,000 square
yards. Consequently, the city authori

From the New York Times, July 24.J
Wo have brought very serious charges
against' Mayor Hall and Controller Con
nolly, and iu reply to theui the Mayrr
says that the city ows us a bill for
advertising which we cannot get 1 -This
is tho most remarkable defense ever
recorded in judicial annals. The Mayor
further says that the figures wc are pub
lishing were obtained from a "dishonora
ble servant" of the City Government. In
other words, the Maior admits the truth
of our charges and the accuracy of our
fgurcs, but says it is sufficient lor him
to uiscre-Jit our motives.' Ills defense is
a clear admission of guilt, let the pub
lic judge between us.
When people are accused of shameful
dishonesty, is it enough for them to say,
"I owe my accuser a bill which I will
not pay, and that is why he accuses me?"
In tho face of such charges as we have
made, it would le puerile to expose the
absurdity of the Mayor's defense. Are
the Jigures tec are publishing accurate or
not f If they are and we offer to prove
that they are they show the city official
to be dishonest. Our motives for mak
ing these exposures have nothing to de
with the subject. But we may say this

FA8T Railroading.- The Philadel-
n-ess of Julv 25th says: ;
The schedule time of the fast line east
poD tbe Pennsylvania Railroad,; from
aUmm la Harrisburg.is three hours and
- ' r minutes. On the 19th, the under
Conductor Edward M. Chase, left Altoona
twentythree minutes late, and was de
tained twenty-eight minutes at Hunting

man who is fool enough to sujipoe that
if our attacks could have been stopped
by the city people paying us 151,000 the
money would not have been paid in five
minutes that man, we say, is welcome
to this belief.
The Mayor says that we have obtained
the accounts surreptitiously. We reply
that these accouuts are public property,
and that no matter how they had come
into our possession it was our duty to pub
lish them. Hut as a matter of fact, they
came to us in a proper manner,without any
circuaistanees connected with our mode of
obtaining them of which anybody has rea
son to be ashamed. One word more on
these irrelevant issues with regard to
what the Corporation papers may saj' of
us just now wc arc perfectly indifferent.
We have no time or inclination to follow
them, and we do not intend to be drawn
aside from our main attack. We build
our ca.-e upon the unanswerable figures
which we are now publishing, and upon
them we appeal to the impartial verdict
of the public.
Now to the main point. We yester
day published the records of a series
of warrants drawn in favor of different
persons, but all indorsed by "Ingersoll &
Co." otherwise J- II. Ingersoll, a part
ner of Tweed's, and a well knowu agent
of the Ring. What did these accounts
That for repairs and furniture supplied
to the antortes alone, during 1809 and
1870, the sum of 1,447,909 12 was
paid under warrants signed by Hall and
Connolly. On a single day, June 30,
1870, the following sums were paid on
this account :
Total $200,0C4 70
Is it probable that this amount was
ever actually paid fur one day's work
done to armories and drill rooms ?
But wo have yet the accunfs of other
firms to publish, and then it will be seen
that the checks indorsed to Ingersoll &
Co. by no means represent all the money
supposed to have been spent on armories
and drill rooms.
For furniture supplied to tho new
Court house the total paid to one firm
was 81,476,980 24.
For carpenter work done in tha new
Court-house, the following suuis were

A special Agent of the Treasury sent
out from Washington to the I'uget Sound
region of Washington Territory, has dis
covered certain irregularities in the ac-v
counts of certain prominent Government
officials there. Of course an attemptwas
made to connect the name of Gov, Salo
mon wi;h these transactions, but the
parties making the accusations failed to
make them stick. The honorable and
straightforward course of The Governor
since his appointment, his indefatigable
industry in promoting ith all his power
the best interests of the Territory, give
the lie to all such low a:.d base accusaj
tions. The Olympia Standard, edited
by 13eriah Brown, Esq., a thoroughpaced
Democratic journal, thus speaks of ' the
matter, paying Gov. Salomon a handsome
tribute of respect : :

on tbe 6th inst.; is pronounced the most brilliant
and artistic ever witnessed in that city. Tbe
American and Italian flags appeared side by side
throughout the procession ; there was not the
slightest allusion to the Pope or the Papal ques
tion to be seen, aod no inscription that could of
fend the religious sentiments of any portion of the
community. The highest praise . is awarded to
the Italians for the care taken to prevent offense
to any one, and for the patriotism, taste and
good sense displayed in the whole affair.

Klamath Lake Reservation, the Corvallis GazrH
gets the ' following, fuels : - -Tliev-ReserrationTs
about -fifty 'miles' square, and lies on' the eastern
shore of tho Middle Klamath Lake, and extends
up Sprague's river about eighteen miles above tho
Yuinttx Agenogr, and north to include the tipper
late or umran. . Tbe general appearance or tne
country, except- few valleys, is sterile and. unin
viting, and mostly coverra witu pumice stone.
Tbe country is roiling, the bills neither high nor
ubrupt, and generally covered by a fine growth of
pine timber, tree from underbrush, lue Keser
vation is well adapted to the Indians, so far as
procuring a Kvin- from routs, neb, game, etc., is
concerned, but not well adapted for carrying out
the present policy of the Indian Department.. Tho
country abounds with fine-springs. The one at
the Agency runs a sawmill and supplies an irri
gating ditch, and furnishes besides an immense
amount of water, a portion of which they propose
to uso as motive power for a grist-mill now in pro
cess of erection. As a farming country, the Klam
ath Lake region is not a success.

With the above notice came-two bright -silver

of generosity and liberal-hcartcdness. Our best
wishes go with the newly wedded pair.
