Washington, Juno 16.—Some timo ago It was charged, and afterwards demonstrated, that the records of the Duoll Court-Martial wore ab stracted from tho War Department. Within a few days it has boon discovered that all tho archives in tho War Deportment pertaining to tho secret history ol the rebellion have boon stolon. When this was done, or by whom, is not known. Tho lato Secretary Stanton, during bis administration of tho War Office, filed away a largo number of private loiters and tele grams, tho existence of which was known to two or* throe persons besides himself. They related to courts-martial, tho conduct of prominent officers of tho army, the intrigues of politicians and military aspirants and tho rascality of Government contractors, and tho ways and moans nsod to influence tho President of tho United States in overruling tho decisions of tho Secretory of War. In those cases,' a gen tleman whoso position made him familiar with those documents, says many men, who woro connected with the army and who havosinco figured in public life, will retain their character more securely with those records out of tho roach of scrutiny. It Is known that they woro all in tho War Office when Stanton retired.' Ho had thorn systematically briefed and stowed away in a safe place, and had ho lived and re mained In public life, they would probably havo figured largely in preventing the appointment of men to office who have since shown that they wero no better fitted for tho Civil Service than they woro for positions of trust and high com mand in tho army. Those private archives cov ered a period of timo from the first battle of Dull Bun down to tho surrender of Loo’s army. They embraced orders for courts-martial, with their findings, some of them sentencing the offenders to be shot, and other records of which tho people woro igno rant. It is said that a gentleman connected with the War Department during tho rebellion, through whoso hands all those matters passed, took copies of them, and will use them in writ ing the secret history of tho war. TUEASUIIV OinoULAB. An important circular will bo issued by the Treasury to-morrow or 'Wednesday to.ofilccre of the customs in regard to reports of fines, penal ties, and forfeitures said to ho mode to District Attorneys under the act of March 3, 1873, amendatory of 800. 7 of tho act of July 18. 1806. Tho Secretary of tho Treasury submitted a draft of tho circular to tho Attorney- General .for hla decision os to the propriety of issuing it, aud roquostod that in tho .'vent of a. favorable decision, instructions bo issued to tho several District-Attorneys, directing them to institute no legal proceedings whore the pen alties insured under tho customs revenue laws, ate voluntarily paid, or in case of seizure of property not exceeding SSOO In value, as pro vided for in tho aot of July, 1866, or in cases of tho seizure of goods nob exceeding in valuo SI,OOO, which may bo released by tho Collector of Customs with tho sanction of the Treasury De partment, under the fifth section of tho aot to prevent and punish frauds upon tho Govern ment, passed Aug. 3, 1863. Simultaneously with tho issuance of this cir cular by tho Treasury Deportment, the Depart ment of Justice wiQ issue one to the District Attorneys, embracing the provisions of tho former, and instructing them as suggested by the Secretary of the Treasury. TUB SHANKING PBIYILEOB. An estimate mako by a prominent officer hero of tbo cost of abolishing tbo frank ing privilege on tbo let of next month, demonstrates tho foot that between $700,000 and $1,000,000 will bo expended in supplying Federal officers with scales on which to weigh tboir mail matter, and for print ing circulars of instruction, and engraving and forwarding postage stamps, etc., to offices at distant points. It is calculated that at most tbo abuso of tbo franking privilege involved an ex penditure by tbo Government of not exceeding $300,000 per yoar t and that, aftor supplying tbo wants of the various Federal departments and such individuals as may bo ontltlod to postage stamps at Government expense, it will be found that there will bo no saving to tho Government by tbo abolition of tho privilege. But ou tbo otbor band, It Is said, there will bo a loss the first year of from SIOO,OOO to $700,000. Groat stress will bo laid upon the above recital at tbo next session of Congress, wbon an effort to rovlve tbo frank ing privilege is to be made. THE HUBS IAN MISSION. Ex-Gov. Jewell is expected boro dally to re ceive his final instructions as Minister, prepara tory to bis departure for Itussia on tbo Sd prox. THE MODOO QUESTION. * No official dispatohoa have boon received at the War Deportment with reference to the Court or Military Commission to bo convened for tbo trial of Oapt. Jack andhia band. Gen. Sherman la of tbo opinion that Con. Darla will order tho Commission to immediately assemble, and that a portion of the troops will bo removed to Fort Klamath, in Oregon, to remain at that poet until the fate of the Modoca has been determined. The remaining companies will bo returned to various garlsona In California and Oregon. It is probable that ton or twelve of tho rod skins will bo executed, as sufficient witnesses cau bo bad on the part of tho Government to prove that ton of tho Modocs participated in the Oauby murder, and throe in tho Sherwood killing. Tho Commission will bo governed by tho military code, which oes not require the proving of malice on tho part of the offenders, nut merely (ho establish mg of the fact that they wore present and aided and abetted in the murders. The sentence will probably be hanging by tbo nook, it not being the impression among tho military men that a soldiers fate of shooting will bo accorded those outlaws. {To the Associated Press,] THE POLARIS EXPEDITION. Washington, Juno 10.—Commander Green has boon ordered to the command of the vessel to be dispatched for tho discovery and relief of tho Polaris, with Lieutenant-Commander White as Executive Officer. Tho Secretary Is making tbo selection of a vessel suitable for Arotio navi gation. Efforts are being made to start tho ex pedition early In July. The Juniata is taking out her guns, and provisioning for a voyage of inquiry, and may leave tho lose of this week. APPOINTED. ’ James Corning has boon appointed Internal Bovouue Storekeeper for the First District of Missouri. TUB TEXAS BORDER COMMISSION. The Commission to inquire into the outrages on tbo Texas border arrived heio this morning, and had an Interview with Secretary Fish during the day. They deny tho reports that tho Toxans make roidadnto Mexico, and say there is noth ing thereto induce them to plunder their pov erty-stricken neighbors. All our citizens care for is protection in their persons and property against invasions from tho Mexicans and In dlwia. £ftor tho Coumtaaioun’B wt Modocs. np the lUo ' Ontario to take testimony, tbo Mexicans on tbo lower part of that river crossed, ami began their thiev ing operations, for whlob they wore pursued and chastised by Col. McKenzie. The Texas Login- Inturo instituted an inquiry into the Mexican and Indian wrongs upon citizens of that State, when some of the moss respectable residents of Nue ces Volley wont to Austin and gave stronger tes timony than they bad previously given before the Commission. Tbo Commissioners represent the amount of damages, diroot and consequen tial, to those who have Buffered by those raids, at between $50,000,000 and SCO,UOO.OOO. Five hundred petitions, in the way of complaint, with spoauloations wbfo presented to the Com missioners, and those wore supported by 1,000 affidavits. Many of tbo petitioners and affiants are represented to bo men of fine education and of the most respectable character. As to the Klckapoos, it is supposed ihoro are not more than 200 warriors of them altogether. One of the old Chiefs, referring to tbo proposi tion of tbo United Slates to the Klckapoos to go back on the reservation, said to a Commisioucr os follows: Wo would have hut a small patch of ground, and could net mnko raids on other rcsorvatious. Hero wo are supported by tbo Mexican Government, which not only supplies n« with provisions, but given us money, ami, when wo wont to go to Texas, tbo Mexican mer chants amt planters supply tui with horsos, guns, and ammunition and provisions, that wo may make our broad, and wo pay thorn from what wo capture. Uo eldoo. wo have a good country aud lino climate, many privileges, and tho whole Texas border to raid on. The Commissiouors think that if tbo captives taken by Col, McKenzie should bo restored to tbo Itickapoos, they would bo no more inclined to return to tbo United Stales than they are now, aud bonce they doubt tho propriety of complying with their requests. Tho Secretary of tho Interior will take no Jircaont action on tho telegraphic request of thb

tickapoo Commissioners, except to refer It to tho Secretary of War, with tho suggestion that ho confer with tho Secretary of State on tho subject. New York, Juno 10.— A Washington special says that the Mexican Border Investigating Com mittee have returned to that oity, to prepare their report. They have been engaged con stantly since Jan. 10, and have hoard evidence in dOO coses, and have received, in addition, 1,800 ox parte affidavits. Several women and children who had escaped from tho Indians appeared be fore tbo Commissioners and told the story of their terrible sufferings. Tho Comanchos are said to bo mainly engaged in tho business of stealing and selling the children and women of tho white settlers, while tho Klckapoos and Lipans, and Mexicans disguised as such, chiefly confine themselves to cattio stealing. The raids of those people are so frequent that stock-rais ing within 200 miles of tho Rio Grande has boon well-nigh abandoned. MADISON. Decision in n Libel Suit—-The Janes villo “ Gazette mulcted in tUo Sum of SI,IOO. Special Dispatch to The Chicago Tribune. Madison, Wis., Juno 10.— The libel suit of Whitney vs. the Janesville Gazette Printing Company ended to-day by a verdict of $l,lOO for plaintiff, a jeweller, of New York, who claimed SIO,OOO. - Judge Davis, in his charge to tho jury, summed up tho article causing tho ac tion as follows : “It sots out with a serious af fray, Inwhicb tho plaintiff and one Tompkins wore concerned, which was not to tho credit of the plaintiff, in tho opinion of tho writer, and which produced great excitement in tho community of Janesville. Tho writer then says that this man Whitney, the plaintiff in the action, has figured rather con spicuously for some timo past to tho disadvan tage of tho business interests of Janesville, and then proceeds to give an account of WUitnoy’a dealings with S. 0. Spaulding, Mr. Doroll, W. L. Gooklns, and Tompkins, upon whom the as sault wus made, aud after stating that Tomp kins, while Whitney was absent, locked tho store door to prevent Whitney from packing up the goods until oomo sort of a settlement was effected, says this was tho occasion of tho assault which produced groat excitement for a timo, as tho sympathies of tho pnblio aro with tho victims of this professional swindler. Tho ar ticle winds up as follows: “ Mr. Whitney is a resident of Now York City, and has his quarters in Broadway. Wo understand that hfs ways aro not os light as are those of good and honest men.” Tbo account given by tbo writer of tbo occa sion and circumstances attending this assault and battory aro not complained of, and the evi dence relating thereto offered by tbo defendant was excluded by tbo Court as not pertinent to the issue. This account is an item of local nowojand, if correctly given, could not bo com plained of. Tbo Judge ignored tbo basto and excitement in which the article was written and printed, and tbo statement on wbiob its charge was maintained was based, and excluded any evidence of an offer to publish any state ment Mr. Whitney obese to mako in regard to tbo matter, and to rotraet any unwarranted charge* Ho says a publication without justifica tion of another by exposing him to hatred or contempt is libel. The effect of words used,. whether they aro criminal or not, if thoy import, or thoy may bo fairly understood by tboso who. read thorn as directly calculated to degrade tbo man in tbo estimation of bis acquaint ances, and to injuro bis business charac ter. they aro in themselves actionable, ana.do not roquiro proof of malico, or that any special damage has resulted from their publica tion. To say of a person that bo is a profoslonal swindler, is actionable, because every ouo would understand that tbo accusation was that bo made a practice of defrauding others by impo sition or artifice. Tbo Judge bold that tbo charge of general swindling ana dishonest prac tices by plantiff has not been sustained,*noitbor has any dishonest dealings been shown with any one, unless with Qookins, in regard to which tbo evidence was con flicting. Plaintiff is presumed to bo of good character until tbo contrary is shown, and tbo burdon of proof is ou tbo defendant. There was conflicting evidence as to his general reputation. It is understood, despite tbo ebargo of tho Judge, that two of tbo jury woro against award ing any damages, believing tbo plaintiff bad no reputation to lose, wbilo,otbors woro for allow ing tbo whole sum claimed as an oxumplo. Tho sum awarded was a compromise. Some of tbo members of tbo jury who bod boon candidates for office, and then suffered by tbo words of tbo press, took this occasion to wreak revenge, say ing it would teach a lesson to tbo paper boro which bad libeled them when candidates by as sorting that tbolr opponents bad superior quali fications. , .. .. This coso, and tbo rulings in regard .to it, will probably rocoivo some attention from the Wis consin Editorial Convention mooting at LaOrosso to-morrow. Wisconsin Stnto University. Special Dispatch to The Chicago Tribune, Madison, Juno 10.— Tho University Com mencement exorcises began yesterday, with a Baccalaureate sermon by President. Tworably, his proposition being, “ Wisdom , demands that life bo developed according to tbo teachings of God," showing tbo advantages of thus govern ing life. lie claimed tbo following: Tho Di vino guidance is tbo highest honor, evolving tbo Divino thought in our characters and lives; makes available to us tho Immeasurable re sources of life.

Tho Commencement exor cises occur on Thursday. There wore twenty two graduates, no ladies. Tltv Cholern. Memphis, Tonn., Juno 10.—Tho weather has boon very unfavorable for tho improvement of tho health of tho oily, ns during tho night mer cury fell 12 degrees, and to-day it was raining. Tho interments to-uay wore nineteen, fifteen of whom died of cholera andoholora-infautum. Tho City Council this afternoon passed an ordinance establishing a Board of Health. Nashville, Tonn.. Juno 10.— Thirty-two in terments aro reported from tho prevailing disease slnoo Saturday. A largo percentage of those attacked got wolf. Sunday was considered uu especially fatal day, as largo dinners aro oaten on this day. Tho deaths aro nearlyaii colored. Cincinnati, 0., Juno 10.—Tho post forty oigUt hours have developed thepccooueo hero of casta resembling cholera. Throe fatal cases, and tbroo ca«6« not fatal, part of which had oil the symptoms of cholera, within tills period, wore reported at the regular mooting! of the Academy of Medicine to-night. The (unonneo mont In tho papers this morning of a fatal oasoi having ohnlora.Bymptomß, created no excitement ' whatever during tho day, tho citizens generally not apprehending tho prevalence of cholera as an epidemic during this season. WALL STREET. Roviow of the Money, Gtolflj flond* Slock, anil Produce Markets* Special Dispatch to The Chicago Tribune,' New Youk, Juno 10.—Money was In oxorsslvo supply, And, Attar landing on call at 4 to 5 per cant, .closed up cany at 3 percent! Prime die counts nro quoted at oto 6 per cent, The banks are buying paper freely/ but confining tboir pur abases to that 'which does not run over four mouths, preferring to lend on call at nominal rates rather than.to tie their funds up through the autumn. Bo general, however, is the foar.of a recurrence In tho coming autumn of the severe stringency which blighted mercantile interests from November up to May last, that every One in business Is pursuing a conservative course, and It Is possible that trouble this fall will be averted by this early preparation. Business was unusually dull ou tho Stock Ex chango to-day, and tho transaotious scarcely up to tho average. Tho changes wore generally very slight, and in tho main lower. Prices do dinedX to In early dealings, and later recovered, but tho market again became weak lu tho afternoon, and touched tho lowest point of tho day. Tho movement in Western union last week, which was attributed to opera tions of Commodore Vanderbilt, doos not con tinue, and there appeared to be no onojn tho market to-day who cared to take tho load.

HORRID TRAGEDY, An Entire Family murdered By the Father’* Brother* Belfast, Me., Juno 10*—Almon Gordon and his wifo and child wore found murdered in bed at Thorndike, 18 miles from here, this morning. A brother of Gordon has been 'arrested on sus picion. A dispute about a piece of property is said to bo tho cause. LATER. Belfast. Mo., Juno 10.—Tho following addi tional particulars of tho Thorndike murder have been elicited; John Gordon, a man 70 years old, had recently convoyed to his sou, Almond M,, his farm, worth $5,000, taking back a mortgage for life lor tho support of himself and wife. Tho other sou, John T., was dissatisfied with tho arrangement, and probably thought that, by tho death of his brother and family, the property would fall to him. This is tho only motive thus fat assigned. At tho time of tho murder the' old people wore absent on a visit. Tho inmates of the house wove tho murdered man, Almon M„ aged 26; Emma A., his wife, aged 22; their children, Ira 8., aged 0 ; a little girl, aged 17 mouths; Anna, a niece, aged 9; John T, tho brother, and a hired man. About 3 o’clock a. m. the latter was awakened by tho shrieks of tho little boy. and ho immedi ately discovered that the bouse was on ilco. lie informed tho neighbors, and tho flames wore extinguished without much damage. Tho bodies of the father, mother, and infant, who occupied tho same hod, wero soon found, man gled and scorched, as to bo hardly,recognizable. Tho little boy, who slept la a crib in tho samo room, was severely wounded, but may survive. Tho bloody deed was evidently committed with au ax, which was found on the premises. The wounds of tho throe murdered persons wore in flicted on tho head, and must have caused in stant death. Tho brother, John T., was arrest ed on suspicion. lie is 28 years old, a farm laborer, and unmarried. Ho maiutalus a sullen indifference, refusing to answer any questions, but saying that at the proper time ho will defend himself. Tho Ooronor held an inquest this afternoon. Tho prisoner will probably bo ar raigned before tho Police Court of this city to morrow. 'JTlie Ucunio Quomion In Waukegan* Waukegan, 111., Juno 10.—Mayor Williams has vetoed the recent ordinances passed by the Com mon Council of this city, fixing the license of saloon-keepers at SOOO, and those of grocers at SSOO. Ho takes tho ground that if liquor-selling is right, and for tho interests of tho city, poor men, as well os rich, should have tho privilege of license, and that tho amoimts fixed in the pro posed ordinances discriminate in favor of those whoso pecuniary ability would enable them to pay for licenses. But ho furthermore takoa tho ground that tho Common Council has tho power to regulate and prohibit tbo liquor traffic, aud that if, as is generally conceded, the traffic Is an aotual detriment to tho peooe and morality of tho community, ho suggests whether It is not tho duty of the Council to refuse ail licenses, and thus virtually abolish tho traffic. This gives rise to the question of License or No License. Telegraphic llrevities* D. O. Mills has resigned his position of Presi dent of the Bank ot California.
