LONDON DOCUMENTS INJURE HIS PROSPECTS. Special Ditpateh to The Chicago Tribune. Washington, D. • 0., April 25.— The House Commute# on Foreign Affairs received through the mail to-day au important package of docu ments from tho flies of the Emma Mining Com pany of London. Those were forwarded by McDonald, at tho request of tho Committtoo. and in accordance with tho promise which ho telegraphed about two weeks ago. After exam ining them, tho Committee agreed to keep their secret until nftor Gen. Bcbenck baa had an opportunity to soo and explain them. The most important of those papers is understood to ho tho original letter of resignation, which Gen. Bohonck for warded to tho Directory of tho Emma Mining Company, in December, 1871. It may ho re membered that James D, Lyon testified before the Committee that Trenor W. Park ebowod blm a letter of resignation, purporting to have been written by Bcbenck, in which llttlo or nothing in regard to his continued faith in tho Company was contained, and Park at tho timo remarked that ho would bo more use ful to tho Company; that subsequently Park showed nlm a letter which was finally submitted to tho Board of Directors, and tbat tho copy which be saw was in Park’s handwriting and sicood by Schenck. This story both Schenck tfnd Park ABSOLUTELY DENIED. Oeu. Schenck said that tho nroparation of his letter of resignation was his own work, and that Park had nothing whatever to do with it. It was possible tbat. after it was prepared, ho might have handed it to Park to deliver to tho Board, but ho was not certain that bo had even done tbat. Park denied that ho had over soon but one letter of resignation prepared by Bcbenck. The original of this document, which is now in tbo hands of the Foreign Affairs Committee, is IN PARK'S HANDWRITING, and signed by Qou. Bcbenck. This fact goes a long way to corroborate the lontimony of Lyon, and places both Bark ami Bchonck in a very unpleasant position. Tho other documents re ceived to-day are communications between Oeu. Schenck and Ids Secretary in Pans, and Trenor W. Park in London, in regard to tbo stock in tbo Emma Mino hold by Bclmnok, and about which there Is a conflict between tho testimony of bcbenck and Park, and statements mado to the Committee by letter and telegraph by Mc- Donald. AKERMAN’S STORY. TOE CONFEUEUATEH AGAIN DISAPPOINTED. £'ixcinl Uxevatch to rhe Chicago Tribune. Washington, D. 0.. April 25.—The Committee on Expenditures in thp Dopartmout of Justice bad before them to-day ex-Altorcoy-Gouoial Akermau and no other witness. Most of tho session was private and was unimportant, Akor mau, at his examination yesterday, declined to betray conversations between himself and tho President on tho subject of tho Society for tho Prevention of Fraudulent Voting, and asked (or time. Ho was given until this morning, when, on being again colled before tho Committee, ho (till declined, unions the Committee should de ride by vote to compel him. A recess of tho Committoo followed. Another session was tailed, amotion made to compel him to answer forthwith, arid a vote iu tho affirmative was de llarod. After all this ceremony tho Committee, hopeful to a degree almost merudiblo. learned Kith sorrow that Akorman knew nothing, and had NEVES TALKED WITH TUE PRESIDENT rery much ou tho subject, uot oven remember ing its purport. T{m Committoo this evening, having nothing bettor to do, aro collingbim Peck sniff. Akorman did testify, however, that ho know very littlo about tho work being done by Davenport iu Now Y'ork: that pis first infor mation was by totter from tiro President by tbo hands of Gen. Porter, iu tho summer of 1871, tho Prcidd.epA being then at Long Branch. Ho had tal'A'- u '^- > “ Gift President several times, but bo could in ■remember anything particular that Iho Prub.otnt said. Ho hoard that groat fraods bad been committed in Now York in tho elec tion of Co.igtossra#n and other officers. Tho President nod first directed payment of money onder tho laws, but ho assumed the whole responsibility. Ho had withdrawn money from the Hccrot Service fund aud converted it to tho payment of Davenport, but most of It bad passed through Whitley's hands as the head of the Seoiot Borvico Division. Akermau said, in reply to questions, that ho bad never iseuod instructions to Davenport, nor had the latter made any report to him aa to bow the money was spent— A HATTED OP OQEAT BUnPHIHE to the Committee; but Akorman explained tbat it was impossible to mako a report every day or two on such cases, aud, had bo staid m tho Cabinet, no doubt he would have required re ports aud issued instructions at tho proper time. The Democrats acknowledge to-night that they were completely surprised at tho old man’s Shrewdness aud smoothness of tongue. He con tinued to talk, they say, for more than two hours, warding questions and talking so plausi bly that they could neither interrupt him nor tot any information from him. Ho is, if possi ble. less satisfactory as a witness than Daven port. UTILS JOHNNIE DAVENPORT ■ expected to-morrow to continue hia sketch of Ihe Tammany frauds, which ho is reciting to the Llaulfleld Committee. Tho attempts to prove lhat Davenport has made targe sums of money tat of hia efforts to suppress the Tam many election frauds will bu fruitless. The truth is that Ida enthusiasm on tide subject was to great that ho borrowed large suma of money to carry oat Ida preventive echome, and now is personally indebted to the amount of $225,000 on this account. Among other persona who are Jew carrying bis paper on account of these in livldual loam are Jackson B. Bohulta and Clin ton Wheeler, of New York. [2b Ike AuoeuiUd PtcmJ _ WIIAT AKEUMAW SAID. Washington, D. 0., April 25,-rEx-Attorney- Usneral Akerm&n to-day asked tbe Committee bu Expenditures in tho Department of Justice to consider whether they would demand of him an ananer to the questions propounded yester day, whether he conferred with tbe President before paying certain moneys to John I. Daven port. The full Committee not being present, a recess was taken till 2 o’clock. On reassembling, tbe Committee decided to Require the answer from Ur. Akermao, who then Eut to a protest, on tbe ground that it was both legal and prohibited by tbe statute that such communication with the Executive should be toade public. He tbeu testified to conversations •miliar to those narrated by ex-AUorney-Qeu •ral Williams with the President. Mr. Akerman stated that aome time In 1871, *hlle the President was at Long Drench, and ho (Akerman) was in Washington, he received a letter written by Gen. Porter in accordance with •be direction #1 tbe President, stating that Ur. Davenport was engaged In searching out frauds WMnat naturalization snd registration In «• YetJ t, sad iaggatlng to him (Ak sioan) that he could usefully employ a portion of the money given to him by Congress to sup proas tho election frauds In this Now York case. Witness was at that time engaged in an Investi gation in Kn-Ktnx affairs In Uto South, am! ho replied to tho President's suggestion that ho had already appropriated his monoy in that di rection. Ifo wan told In a subsequent commu nication from tbo I’roaldout that tbo funds could bo naed with an groat advantage in Now York City as In tbo Booth. After full explana tion be authorized tub payment to davenport. Theio conversations with the President extend ed through the fall of 1670 and soring of 1671. The frauds in elections wore matters of frequent consultation, and witness recommended tbo em- ployment of special counsel, and among others who were omptoyod In tho Now York cases wan Caleb Cushing. lie could not stnto any specific case in which tho frauds wore committed ; but bo knew they wero general. Mr. Cushing was paid for bis services out of what was called tho Judiciary fund. Witness never thought the President wan influenced in hie action by any partisan motive, 110 wanted to prevent frauds, and ho did not caro wbat party they af fected. no could not recollect that auy portion of this money wan used to delect frauds In Philadelphia. Tho latter was a Ilopnbllean city, and Now York was Democratic, but that did not influence the President in his action. Tho frauds in Now York seemed to bo systematic,— that was the field of Davenport's operations, and tho President was of opinion that if bin system could bo of advantage thoro it would bo else where. Tho President never for a moment thought ho was acting m a partisan manner. Adjourned. _ APPROPRIATIONS. DEMOCRATIC ECONOMY. Special Ditpateh to The Chicago Tribune, Washington, D. 0., April 25.— 1 n the House Randall was successful, so far as tbo question of precedence wont, in putting aside the elec tion case of Lo Moyne and Farwell, and in again bringing forward the Legislative bill. As an argument for proceeding with tho bill, Randall made an assertion which cannot bo sustained, and which is an index of tho inability of tho Appropriations Commlttoojto do anything toward fixing tho time of final adjournment. He said tbat tho Legislative bill could bo finished in two or three sessions, while tho debate of tho whole day succeeded in passing over but two or throo pages of tho voluminous bill. Mr. Ran dall was unable to bold tho House on the hill to-day as as ho has done on most every other occasion. Notwithstanding the opposition blth* to in tho reductions proposed by Democrats* tboy have been directed to cutting down salaries of 111-paid clerks, - and to crippling tbo Govern ment, but to-day Randall reacbod the appropria tions for various localities. Hero at almost overy Important point TUE API’UOPBIATIONS COMMITTER WAS DEFEATED. The Democrats proved that they are for econ omy as a principle, hut opposed to its enforce ment in their own districts. A log-rolling com bination was formed by tbo members in whoso localities mints are located, and tbo combined action of tboso Democratic representatives suc ceeded in forcing tho Coaimictoo in nearly every instance to rccodo from its position, and to adopt tho recommendations made in tho original estimates to Congress. Every member had road a latter from Dr. Liudermau for every change ho desired In the bill. Judge Kelley, wbo retire sonts the district where tho Philadelphia mint Is located, was an exception to represent atives' similarly situated. Ho said that all the money appropriated for mints was to please politicians in tho cities where the mints are located. TUE MOST SIGNIFICANT CHANGE in the hill, as loportod by the Committee, was the adoption of an amendment by a largo ma jority which pioposos to re-establish tho assay office at Now Orleans. This action raised an ex tended debate, in tbo course of which tbo Ap propriations Committee entirely lost control of tbo House and was signally defeated. If tbo ac tion of tbo House as to affairs of local interest upon this bill is a typo of what Us' action will bo on all similar hills, tbo boasts of tbo Appropriations Committee os to the wholesale reductions in national expenditures will prove idle. The Houso also adopted the amendment to continue the Assay office at Charlotte, N. C., which the Appropriations Committee opposed. In tbo debate upon tbo appropriations for sal aries of Territorial Judges, Mr. Hoar offered an amendment, which was adopted, providing tbat no Judge of any Territory shall receive any sal ary in addition to that allowed by law. IMPEACHMENT. THE HOUSE HEJOINDEQ. Washington, D. 0., April 25.—1 n the House this morning Mr. Lord, Chairman of the Im peachment Managers, presented a rejoinder to the demurrer filed by W» W. Belknap. Tbo paper was read, and is to tbe effect that tho House of Representatives, iu the name of itself and of all tho people of tho United States, says that the firm replication to tho plea of Belknap to tho articles of impeachment and the matters there in contained, are in matter and form sufficient in law for tho House to maintain ita articles of impeachment, and that tho Senate as a Court of Impeachment hna Jurisdiction to hoar, trv, and determine tho same, and that as Belknap bos not answered such articles of impeachment or in unv mauner domed tho same, the Uohso of Representatives prays judgment thereon accord iu to law. As to tho first and second subdivisions of the rejoinder to the second replication of tho House to the plea of defendant, wherein de fendant demands trial according to law, the House, in behalf of itself and of all tho people of the United Slates, docs like, and as to tho third, fourth, fifth, and sixth subdivisions of tbo rejoinder tho House assorts it ought not be barred from having and maintaining tho ar ticles of impeachment against defendant be cause it denies every argument in ouch rejoin der which denies or traverses tho acts or in tents»hargod against defendant, and it roaQirms tho mtth of tho latter, aud therefore tbe House of Representatives prays judgment acoordlug to law. Tbo paper was adopted by tho House, and the Clerk was ordered to file It with tho Secretary of the Senate. Tho managers of tho impeachment trial have summoned Marsh and wife: Nall, tho Cashier of the Bank of Commerce, New Xork; E. T. Bartlett, Now York, a lawyer, and Qon. Custer. Mrs. Marsh is ill. WOOD'S FUNDING BILL. • TUB FINANCIAL OUTLOOK. Special Vttpalch to The Chicago 'Tribune. Washington, D. 0., April 25.— Tbe Committoo on Ways and Moans >lllll proceed on Thursday next to the consideration of tho hill introduced by Fernando Wood, which, it is understood, has the approval of the Secretary of tho Treasury. Tho Committoo hae boon urged to take immedi ate action ou this hill, that the Government may avail itself of tbo favorable condition of tho money market in Europe for tbo placing of a first-class Government loan, aud the groat amount of capital, especially in England, now seeking investment In a security of this kind. Senator Boutwoil, in conversation recently, expressed tho opinion that to allow tho present opportunity to negotiate a loan at a low rate of interest to pass without taking advantage of it would bo hardly lesa than crimi nal, aud called attention to tbe previous experience of the Government in soiling Its bonds, aud the great expense in which the conn try bad been involved by delay on former occa sions. In his annual report au Secretary of tbo Treasury, dated Dec. 0, 18C9, Boutwoil urged very strongly tho passage of a Funding bill, and recommended that TUE ESSENTIAL CONDITIONS of the now loan should be those > First, that tbo principal and interest should ho made oayable in America. Second, that the five-twenty bonds should bo received in exchange for new bonds. Third, that tbe interest should ho made payable either in the United btatea or Europe. Fourth, that tho rate of interest should not exceed per cent per annum. “ Should our success in ne gotiating a new loan," he said, “be equal to my expectations, based upon this fact, the ability and disposition of tho people of the United States to pay the public debt are sufficient to Justify ns In assuming that the bonds of the United States will command tbe highest rates in tbe markets of tbo world. Wo shall then be in a condition to enter upon tbe work of reducing taxation at the commencement of tho next ses sion of Congress." A FCNOINO HILL was introduced early lu that session of Congress, but Us passage was delayed ptlueipally on ac count of tbe belief of Gen. HcUeuck, Chairman of tbe Ways and Meana, who bad recently re turned from Europe, that bonds bearing a lower rate of interest than per oent could be sold at pa In tbs English and German markets. Tbs THE CHICAGO TRIBUNE: .WEDNESDAYS , result of this delay was that the Funding act of 1670 won not approved until July 11. Tliis was the verv day on which Prussia withdrew her representative from tho French Court, and before any provisions for tbs sale of our now bonds could bo modo tho groat Frnnco-Prussiau war was actually in prog ress. This mado tho sato oven of per cent bonds in Europe impossible, and at no time during the past five years, UNTIL VERY RECENTLY, has the market rale of United Stales securities in Europe been such that a bond bearing a loss ralo of interest than 6 per coot contd bo sold thoro at par in gold. No ono can predict, of course, wbat events may occur in Europe within tho next year to affect tho negotiation of a loan by tho United States, and it is tho opinion of those who havo given moat attention to tbo subject that Congress ought to take immediate steps to authorize the Secretary of tho Treasury to re fund a cdhßidorabio portion of our outstanding 6 fior cent bonds in those bearing a lower rats of Dterest. THE TERRITORIES. TWO PROMINENT MEASURES. Special Dispatch to The Chicago Tribune, Washington, D. 0., April 25.— Tbe House Committee on Territories agreed to-day to re port favorably on two of the most important measures tnat havo been submitted to it: The establishment of a Territorial Government in tho Indian country, and an enabling act for the admission into tbo Union as a Btato of Now Mex ico. From tbo former of tboso bills havo boon stricken by a vote of the Committee all parts relating to railroads which now extend into or across tho Indian Territory, and also provisions touching tbo distribution of lands among Indians now residing there. The intention of the Committee is to leave (ho Indian land question just where it is now, and to pro vent tho present Indian title from being ex tinguished, or railroad companies from obtain ing land which bos been granted to them. As tbo ultimate effect of the bill, which provides for tbo establishment of United States Courts in the Indian Territory, and for the aoqnißitlon of United Slates citizenship by Indians themselves, will bo to DESTROY THE TRIBAL ORGANIZATION cf the several Indian nations, and as the cove nant of tbo United States with these nations la to continue only so long as tbo tribal organiza tion continues, and tbe land now bold by tbo Indiana rovorts to tbo United States whenever that organization Is broken up, it is difficult to see bow tbo most important objection to Ibis bill can havo boon removed. A motion to reconsider tbe Committee’s ac tion on tbe Now Mexico bill was entered to-day, so that there may he some delay in reporting it. DEMOCRATIC COMMITTEEMEN TUE POSTAL SERVICE. Special Dttpateh to Tht Chicago Tribune, Washington, D. 0., April 25.— Tho Stone Committee on Post-Office Expenditures to-day further examined Davis, of tbo Post-Office De partment, with respect to tbo Bafoly method of weighing mails. Davis produced additional records from tbo files of tho Post-Office Depart ment to show tbat tbo weighing of tho moils on all tbo groat roads running West from Gbicago was mado simultaneously in tho month of November last, and not at different times, as has boon alleged by tho Opposition. An attempt was made in tho Investigation to obtain an admission tbat on some of tbo aldo roads during tho weighing month largo amounts of froo matter was sent over tho roads several times in order to increase the weight. There was no actual proof of this charge. Stone goes to Pittsburg to-night to obtain additional witnesses, and may possibly extend his visit to Chicago. Charlie Walsh, of tbo Chicago office, when boro, testified that tho malls were not all weigh ed at the same time, as is testified by Davis, and Stone hopes to obtain additional witnesses in Chicago to break down tho testimony of the Post-Office officials. MISSISSIPPI. Tho Senate Special Committee to investigate tho alleged election frauds in Mississippi in ac cordance with tbo Morton resolution will hold its first meeting daring tbo present week in this city. Ex-Gov. Amos, now on his way hero, will ho tho first witness, and it is easy to see what character his testimony will bo.. The Com mittee will next go to Mississippi diroct and hold sessions at tbo various places whore tho alleged outrages occurred. OPFEUINO WITNESSES INDUCEMENTS. Another glaring example of the infamous manner iu which testimony la worked up for and by members of House Investigating Committees came to light last night. For some days there has been a story whispered around among do toctlveu that Secretary Bristow bad been caught in retaining money collected by him as District- Attorney at Louisville. No one gave the least heed to the story further thau to wonder which sot of detectives now at work hero had sot it up. Yesterday a witness who had been sum* monod and " examined privately by Judge Bright, of Tennessee, who, as a Com raUloman, has been very forward in his efforts to investigate Secretary Bristow, made an athdavit in regard to to induce him to testify against Bristow hv Bright and a Washington blatherskite named Thornton Smith, who has been exceedingly busy about the investigations. Marks, wbo was a partner in a Louisville brewery formerly seized by Bristow, ami made to pay uoavily, makes alfidavit setting forth tbat Smith waited on him upon his arrival hero, and said bo (Marks) had stated not long since that 81,500 had been paid Bristow for a compromise, but that it had never reached the Treasury. Smith next introduced Marks to Judge Bright, aud tbe lat ter asked him to call at his room tho next morn ing. In a talk with Smith tho same evening tho iattor said TUB? HAD “got" DIUBTOW Id this matter, aud continued, “ Here's tho thing about it. Bristow, Blaine, and Morton are can didates for tho Presidency, and if wo can gob this clow on Bristow wo bar him out at least." Next morning Marks wont to sco Judge Bright, and found Thoruton Smith there. Bright asked many questions about Bristow, and said ho would no doubt have the witness summoned. The affidavit thou close* as follows i Smith, In tba presence of Bright, a aid: “ Now, Mr, Marks, if the Democrats coma Into power, no doubt you can My you assisted aome, and no doubt you would be entitled to office." Judge Bright answered : •• No doubt; if he Is worthy of auch an otQce, be might take hit chances as well as anybody else." A gentleman, wbo has made a careful compu tation of tbe present Democratic method of in vestigation. estimates that the total expense of all the Investigating committees will not fail much short of $500,000, tub ooveunment fcinting office. The llouao Committed on Printing have com pleted tUo investigation of tlio Government printing ollioe, and will proceed at onco with tlia preparation of their report. Clapp, tbo Con gressional priuior, haa sailed for the privilege of appearing before the Committee by counsel. The Committee, at its meeting to-day, author ized a letter to be written to Clapp, Informing him that it had cloeod the testimony in the caeo; that all tbo witnesses whose names he had sug gested lied been called and examined, but that tbe Committee had no objection to hia appear ance by counsel or otherwise, and would ex amine any further witnesses whoso testimony be might desire to have taken. It la reported this evening that Clapp haa engaged the services of oz-Bouator Matt u. Carpenter for hia defense before the Committee. FOREIGN RELATIONS. TUB WINSLOW CASE. Special Dtipatch to The Chkauo Tribune. Washington, D. 0., April 26.—Representative Faulkner, of Virginia, to-day called at tbe State Department to inquire as to the status of tho Winslow extradition case, and had a conversa tion with Mr. Fish. Tbo Secretary read to bis visitor his last latter to tbe English Government on the case, and Faulkner, a gentleman of wide experience in diplomacy, and long in high pub lic position, says it is one of tbo strongest let ters be bas ever seen from ooe Government to another. It recites tbe precedents, principles, and practices of tbe two Governments for tbo past thirty-five years, and Jo the opinion of Faulkner it Is conclusive, and bovoud answer. The letter was long since brought to the attention of the Queen's Government, and, although time sufficient has elapsed, no response by mail or cable has boon received. Mr. Fish regards this aa a good omen, and yet hopes that tbe English Government will A MEW TUEODT of the reason why Winslow bas not been extra dited has recently been broached hers, and is believed by persons high in authority. It is that there is a confiiot between tbe Home and Ihe Foreign Office, and that tbe Foreign Office is exceedingly anxious to surrender Winslow, and to preserve ihe extradition treaty,, In eon finnaUon of this theory, attention to sailed to tb« fact tbat witbln tho pant year or two very serious complications havo arisen be tween the Homo and Foreign Office, from which the Foreign Office bos. with groat difficulty, ex tricated tho Government, it appears that there is a groat jcalousv between those two branches of the Government, both an lo Jurisdiction and prerogative, and that the Homo Office frequent ly taken an Iniliatlal which tho Foreign Oilice is compelled to follow to eecure the united action of the Government. Tho present instance is cited aa ono of them. recede moil its determination lo release Winslow. The Foreign Committee will delay action until tho 2d of May, tho dale fixed for tho release, and, if information arrives at that time that tho forger in not free, and no further news is received from the English Gov ernment, the Committee will recommend serious action on the part of Congress, Tho papers called for by the House on the Hlelnhcrger case, relating to intercourse between the United Slates and the Samoan Islands have been prepared, and will bo sent in to-morrow or the day following. DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE. TUB INVESTIGATORS RNAUOED. Special Dupateh to The-Chieago Tribune. Washington, D. 0., April 25.— The Cabinet meeting of Friday last came to a decision not to aitow tho records of tfio Executive Departments to go out of responsible hands, and Secretary Rriatow, in responding to & request of tbo Committee on Expenditures in the Department of Justice, refused to give the vouchors showing the expenditures of the United States Marshal’s office at New York. Caulfield has replied. His Committee is duly empowered by Congress to send for persons and papers, and tbat if hia request for lbs documents is question is not acceded to be will be compelled to resort to tbe subpoma duces tecum. Sbonld Secretary Bris tow continue to resist, ho may precipitate a controversy about as puzzling in its presenta tion of tbo question of relative authority as tbe dispute between tho House and tbe courts over tbo witness Kilbouro. Parnell Munson, in tbe investigation of the Marsbalahip, has testified as to tho amounts of money bo received. The object of the investigation is to show tbat whero Deputy Marshals have only received 81,OIK),vouchers and receipts have in some canes boon turned into tho Govern ment covering an amount as high as £IO,OOO. It is alleged that a subpusna and like official papers wore sent by moil to distant towns and places, and tbo foes for mileage and per diem allow ances charged up as if tbo papers wore served personally. It ia said tbat Messrs. Bridges and Tourtololts will testify to this, and will state tbat a vast amount of improper management, as well as corruption, was connoated with it under Campbell. _ , YOUNG DELANO. don’t remember. Special DitpaUh to The Chicago Tribune, Washington, D. 0., April 25.—Tbs examina tion of John Delano, bod of Colnmbtiß Delano, ex-Socretary of tbo Interior, proved that bod John bad much too weak and defective a mem ory to bo intrusted with tbo execution of tbe management of v&lnable Government contracts. He bad not tbo Bllghtont recollection of a single one of tbe facts of tbe several charges which have been made and proved against him. He could not remember what contracts, If any, be was a party to or bad, or tbo time be became a party to them, or why or bow be bad an inter est, and it was only after an hour of close cross-examination that bo linally re membered that Gen. Babcock probably showed bim tbo first charges presented against him at tbo White House. Those charges, it will bo re membered, wore presented to tbs President as a confidential communication, and wore by no moans intended for the eye of young John Delano. [Tothe AitoeMtd muA ' Washington, D. C., April 25.— Tbs Committee on Expenditures in tbo Interior Department to day examined Jobn Delano with reference to tbo land-survey contracts. From bis testimony, it appears that bo bad an interest in tbo Hammond contract, though bis name did not appear. Col. Jobn L. Morriam was bis partner. Tbo witness did nothing hot furnish money. Tbo witness received notes or cbocos from Col. Momam, who made tbo checks payable to bun. He made no attempt to conceal tbo receipt of money, nor did bo tbink he acted dishonorably. His recol lection was that be did not receive over $3,000 from all bis surveying contracts. Tbo witness was asked whether bo told Dr. Hoed, in April, 1875, that tbo President bad evidence of bis in terots In such contracts, and replied that bo did not recollect. Being closely questioned, ho said that according to bis recollection the evidence was shown to him by Gen. Babcock at tbo White House. He never bad a talk with the President about tbe matter.

After some discussion, in which fow of tho Senate Democrats were found who would sup port tho House, it was decided that the Senate should not recode from its amendments to the Diplomatic bill, and that a Conference Com mittee should be appointed. This was done. By this action tho Senate has shown a mark of courtesy to the House which tho latter body has recently refused the Sonata, in declining to ask for a conference upon this same bill. TUB TKXAN DODDER. Representative Schleicher, of Texas, has pre pared a resolution, which ho wilt introduce at an early opportunity, directing the troops along tho Rio Grande to cross the Mexican bolder in thoir discretion whenever necessary to prevent cattle-stealing, or the imposition of forood loans upon Ameilcau residents by the Mexican revo lutionists. Tho resolution is, in some of its features, like a declaration of war. Tho Pontmaator-Geuoral has directed that the J/afrtmomal Bazaar, a newspaper whose name sufficiently indicates its purpose, publiahod In Chicago, shall not be allowed transmission through the mails, Tho proprietors of this pa per, through their counsel, have applied to the I’oalmaster-QoQOMI for tho revocation of this order. Accompanying this application is a voluminous petition from tho owner of the Ba zaar. setting forth that tho objects of this novel journal are entirely pure and legitimate. In support of his position, the petitioner submits a series of advertisements from too daily press of Chicago, and maintains that his Journal is purity itself compared with those daily papers. It ta not probable that the Postmaster-General will reconsider his decision. WILL DECLINE. All the lowa Congressmen, with tbs exception o!
