THE MOLINEUX TRIAL. Negress Formerly Employed hy Mrs. Bell On the Stand. NEW YORK, Jan. 15.—In the Moli- neux case to-day, Rachel Green, ne- gress, now living in Washington, tes­ tified that at one tim e she had heen employed as a servant at the house of Mrs. Bell, at No. 257 W est Sev^nty- I s ixth street, this city; this was some 1 tim e previous to the marriage of Moll- neux'and Miss Ohesebrough. The man, however, whom she to-day identified asM olineux, lived there with Miss Ohesebrough, they passing as man and wife and occupying the sam e room. Molineux was known as Mr. Chesebrongh.

It is necessary to believe the un- ~ ted stories of the Boers being in confirmed full reti'(eat has been leannarned • from Colenso, because it le time, crei ___ ' different sources indlsputabl. , the momentous changes in the disi tion of the Boer forces. Advices from Pietermaritzburg, dated Saturday, Jan. 13, say that since their defeat January 6, the Boem have been removing their guns from positions south of Lady­ smith. The same dispatch confirms the report that the thirteenth Hussars reached Groblei'skloof without meeting any Boers. As the trenches a t Gro- hlerskloof were, perhaps, the strongest position held by the burghers, their vacation has considerably astonished the British. The merchants of Pietermaritzburg have received a message from Lady­ smith, saying, \Bring up jam,” etc.; indicating that their Ladysmflth agents anticipated the immediate opening of communications, while Ladysmith heliographed the belief prevalent there January 13 that th e Boers were mov­ ing and concentrating their forces elsewhere. As corroborative of the British activity i n the direction, of the relief of Ladysmith, the Associated Press i s able to, say that a dispatch has heen received in London from General BuHer to the effect that he expected that all dispositions for a synchronous movement of the various columns \ against the besoigers would be com- J pleted this morning. Under these cir- \ cumstances it is considered quite? proh- I able that a n advance on che beleaguer- i cd town has commenced and that flght- ‘ ing is progressing. Optimists go so far as to say i t is expected Ladysmith will be relieved to-night if all goes APPROPRIATION BILL. Reported to the House by Chairman Gannon To-day.

MONTREAL, Jan. 15.—There Is fear of the Canadian Indians in the Northwest rising owing- to the withdra.wal of some of the mounted police for the Transvaal.

The greatest Interest of all the mem­ bers and the politicians generally is cen­ tered in the expected nomination by the governor of a successor to Superintend­ ent of Insurance Louis P. Payn. Al­ though the governor has given no inti­ mation of his purpose a general Impres­ sion prevails that the nomination wijl be sent to the senate a week from tonight. Out of the gi-eat number of names suggested for this place no one has been able to secure the slightest intimation of the governor’s choice. Superintendent Payn was conspicuous about the corri­ dors of the Ten Eyck hotel during th« evening preceding the assembling of the legislature and conversed with many senators. He is, however, as persistently silent as the governor, and no one h been able to draw from him any poi live information as to his expectation policy.

Most conspicuous of all the proposed legislation thus far presented are the nu­ merous and varied propositi* organfza'tlon of the New York city school department, and these promise to occupy much of the time of the early days of the session.
