Concealed from the Sherlft's officers Until new bondsmen come forward to save him Irom Imprisonment this statement of the Trib une it seems is UASed on tbe fact that Terrence arley is reported to have given notification to the Sheriff of his withdrawal from bail bond Also that neither Hugh Hastings nor Jay Gould would attempt to pass the examination re quired and justify in the sums in which they have offered themselves When Tweed learned of ar intention it is said that he disappeared im mediately or ho' would have slept last night in tbe county prison He was at office in' Duane street at
