Washington, D. 0., April 20. —A steady stream of applicants for silver currency continues daily at the Trosßory Department, each person pro* sonting a email amount of fractional currency for redemption. The sum already paid out boro, including that forwarded to other points where there la no Assistant Treasurer, by express, ex ceeds 8200,000. The shipments by express will bo small hereafter, as tho Treasurer has begun making remittances by moans of checks drawn on the various Assistant Treasurers, payable hi silver. Tho amount tuns remitted in this way is more than SIOO,OOO. Tho total amont paid oat at all ofllcos to date Is not far from $600,000. This amount has had no perceptible effect in relieving the small-change famine, and the silver tbas far paid out Booms to have been to a considerable extent HOARDED by those who have received it, Instead of having gone Into the circulation. This is believed by Treasury officials to bo the result of tho method of distribution provided by Congress. Tho Treasury Department already finds considerable difficulty,ln getting tho silver com which it has on hand out into circulation, and tho opinion pre vails among officers that tho law would have been more effective had It authorized tho issvo of at least $0,000,000 of sliver at ouco lu exchange for greenbacks, or paper fractional currency, in order to afford immediate relief for tho scarcity of small change consequent upon the two months' stoppage of work at the FrluUng Bureau. Many biiHiui«s-iDcn, who really prefer (taper to silver, ana who desire to obtain the latter only because they are unable to got the former, omnoiZß TUB ItEQUIBEUCNTS OP TUB LAW te very severe. The only way lu which they can ob tain the coin Is by the presentation of the paper frac tional currency, aud If they had that they would prefer te keep It, Instead of exchanging It for silver. The distribution of paper fractional currency hmt ceased, although theca is uo provision of law against its issue, end uo obstacle to its further use except tho want of an appropriation for running tho presses. There remain in the Printing bureau many sheets of fractional currency partially printed, which, In tho In terest of economy to relievo tho stringency of thn small-change famine, might bo finished aud issued, A considerable number of theeo sheets have their bocks printed at a cost of s.ll a thousand by outside bank note companies, and these, unless they ore issued, will bo cut up for money straps, or macerated into pulp and sold at a fraction of a cent per pound to the Georgetown paper-mill. Tho amount of finished paper fractional currency in the Treasury vaults is more than fCOU.OOO, and for this APPLICATIONS ABB CONSTANTLY ÜBOBIVEO. Tbla might be paid out to incrcuo the stock ex changeable for silver la the hoods of the public, sod much of It will, oo doubt, be Issued to disbursing officers, sloes the Treasury Deportment Is nut under the low authorized to furnish silver In the pay ment of their drolls. As su Indication that there sro people who do out suffer for the want of small change, it may be staled that a considerable number of depos itors of fractional currency fur redemption take greenbacks for it instead of sliver. Attention has also been called to tho fact tha the ex pense of Issuing and handling tho paper fractional currency has been Ore per cent; that s five par cent gold bond was sold to obtain the silver with which to retire the paper currency, end that the recent law car ries the paper currency redeemed to tho sinking fund, with annual interest charge* of 0 per cent in gold, until the national debits paid, the latter item of In terest being compounded annually. MISCELLANEOUS INQUIRIES. TUB BOTH KXTEHMINATOB. Bptcial DupaUK to Tho Chicago JVtfttms, Washington, D. 0., April 20.—Uufua Ingalls waa examined this afternoon by tho Olymor- Oommltleoe in regard to the moth contract, lie eald that he had no earthly interest in any moth contract, and he did not know what Don Piatt was talking about. One point Ingalls did not make very clear. A clause waa inserted in au appropriation bill lost year prohibiting the expenditure of any money for any patent moth process, but it.sppesrs that Uufua Ingalls did expend a Tory oonaldersnle sum of money last year for that purpose, charging it to tho labor for pre serving clothing. There was an appropriation for labor for that purpose, and under this comprehensive appropriation Ingalls considered that be had authority to purchase that which waa directly prohibited by law. At least this seemed to bo the inference from his tee tlmony. TUB DBMOCBATIO FBOOBAUMB. A prominent Democratic member of the House eald to-day that their aide will not allow an adjournment before November, unless tbs Republican* agree that CHICAGO, THURSDAY, APRIL 27, 1876. ■lt Investigating Committees which desire to contmni may sU during the recess.

POSTAL FACILITIES. A SCHEME TO CURTAIL THEM. ffptdal VlijxsUh to rhe Chicago Tribune, Washington, D. 0., April 20.— I The House Ap* propriatlons Committee bos decided to destroy all faet*ma(l service, and in ibis respect to en tirely cripple tbe Fost-Offloe Department, and place It and tho Government at tbe mercy of tbe railroads. Under tbe plea of economy, tbe Com* mittoo proposes to deprive tbe people of tho benefit of tbe present mail Byatom, and to give tbe railroads tbe power to charge wbat they cbooao for rapid transmission. Tbs i’ost*Ofiloo Ap propriation bill, so far as It relates to mall transportation, entirely destroys the power of tbe Tort-OfDce Department to secure any portal car facilities on the best trains, and will abolish the fast-mall service. The railroad com panic* agreed to the rales, 6 mills per found per mile, run at a speed less than 25 miles per iour; 7 mills at a speed less than 30 miles; 8 mill* for 35 miles, 0 mills for over a miles, provided the bill went through as referred to the Committee; that Is, the Department assuming all terminal and side service, or the delivery of mails at tho Post-Office. Ihe Committee, understanding fully what tbe conae* quencea will lie, have cut off tbe 7 and H-mlll rate. This throws off all the fast sendee, and will put the Department at tbe mercy of the railroads, who will doubtless refuse to givo fint*ctosß service for 0 and 7 mills. IN CONGRESS. THBASUItT AOENTd. Bpecia Dttpnleh to The Chicago Tribune, Washington, D. 0., April 20.— 1 n tba Sonato, Senator Sargent continued bia opposition to the Special Treasury Agents, by aeoariug the adop tion of a resolution directing tbo Secretary of the Treasury to inform tbo Senate of tbo num ber of Special Revenue Agents, under what section of tbo Revised Statutes they bold their appointments, whether any of them have re ceived any compensation in tbo nature of spe cial awards, and if so, by whit authority of law, and whether any of them are under tbo direc tion of any oflicor nob a subordinate of the Treasury Department. Mr. Morton renewed bia arguments in oppo sition to tho bill which prohibits popniar suf frage in tho District of Columbia, lie said such an act was a proposition to gradually destroy universal suffrage in all Uio Htates. Hu maintained that the peo ple of tbo District at present are taxed without repre sentation, and arc unite as much serfs as wore the llnsriann.* Uoulwoll concurred la very much that Morton said, but was not prepared to carry the argu ment os far. in tho House was (he adoption of two resolutions to investigate two additional officers of tbo llouso. It la ncedlcns to say that these resolutions were offered from the llcpublicau side. This makes eight clerks and officers who already are resting under tome kind of sutplcluu. The Democrats succeeded in creatlnga Special Com mittee to Investigate the Federal officers in Now Or leans, but failed In tbo very purpose for which tho resolution was originally introduced. It was known to bo tho intention of tbo Democrats to aezure this Committee with power to sit during the recess, so that during tho campaign dally bulletins of scandal might bo scut from Now Orleans. The resolution was adopt ed with tbo proviso that tho report shall be made to this session of Congress. THE L7.GIBL&TIVB HILT.. In the debate on the Legislative hill, which occupied tho rest of tbe day, the Appropriations Committee was more successful than yesterday, for (bo reason that tho passages under consideration referred mainly to the salaries of Government clerks. Tho passage re luting to tho. War Department was adopted as reported by the Committee. Western members vainly attemped to secure the restoration of tho clerical force in the General Land Office, and dwelt at length upon tao advantages of that office to tbo Western country, but their effort was fruitless. Judge Lapham, of New York, one of tho impeach ment managers, Introduced a novel Joint resolution proposing an amendment to the Cwustltutlon, provid ing that whenever an appropriation bill is passed by Congress, and Is presented to the President for bis signature, bo may withhold his approval Irom auy particular item lu tbe hill, etatiug his recsou for so doing. , NOTES AND Nf'.VS. . impeachment. Special Ditpctch to The Chicago Tribune, Washington, D. 0., April 20.— The Bcnato and tbo impeachment managers have made full preparation for tbo renewal of tho impeachment proceedings to-morrow, but it is intimated that Bolknap’a counsel may ask for an additional two weeks of delay, and that tbo Bouato is likely to grant it. THOSE MIMING BONDS. Some of the oflicere of tho Union Paottic, now hero, stnto that tho Bovornl stories ia circulation in Now York ond elsewhere, relative to tbo missing Union Pacific bonds, aro nutrne. These officers say that tho bonds have not boon traced to Ham. tbo Treasurer, and that they have not boon traced at all. They givo It, howovor, as their opinion that tbo bonds woro lost about tbo timo of the Fisk raid,and that, having boon deposited a<* collateral with some dishonest broker, tboy wore hold and not returned, although tho notes for which they wore collateral wore then paid and cancelled. LAKE FUONT DILL. Tho Houso Commlttoo on I’ublioßulldingaaad Grounds this morning had anothormootmg unou tho Harrison Luko front hill, wiihuut reaching a conclusion. Harrison has himself moved in tho Commission a snbstitutn for his original bill, which was published In Tun TniuuMt, The Sub-CumnilUeo having ebargo of tho bill reported it favorably to tbo Committee itself, but two resolute opponents aro found in Cook end lloimnn. Cook worn* la consider that tho Government nos nu undeniable title in tbo Unit, and thul the Government is enuthd U be eoa.- pcimatcd for 1U value. Holman .wtoluu tho bill nrro carefully guarded in tbe Interests of those who ac quired lake-front lots at tbo original side of tho Fort Dearborn Addition. Similar objection was hail to tho bill In tbo Judiciary Conimlitoo, Tbe Harrison bill, us It now stands, grants wha'ever title tbo Government may have to all tin uid Fort Dear born addition, with tho rlparlau accretion, to tho City of Chicago without conditions. TUF. LUNATIO WJTNP.SU. Tho President, tn conversation with a gentleman to day, told tho true story of Hid madman wbo has re cently given such romantic testimony before the Com mltteo on Expenditure in tho Interior Daiurtmcut. Tbo President says that ho was conscious for many weeks that ho was being shadowed; that ho could never leave the While-House with out fiudlng tho maniac turn upon him at some struct corner, ana glower upon him with his roaming eyes; that the espionage buoamo Intolerable, aud tho iTcsideut cue day slopped the man and told him that it must ccaao, or ho would nave him arrest ed. It did not cease, and tbe President iu his walks carried a cano. Thu madman •till continued to haunt tbo White-Hours grounds and the streets, aud was finally taken to tbo Asylum. Uu had been there but a abort tune, when bis friends here told tbo au thorities that they would take him to his homo In Ireland if ho could bo released. The requeet*Was Immediately granted, aud be was sent to Ireland. By what means that madman was brought here probably tbe Democratic Investigat ing Commlttoo know moro than the President.

Cox several days ego In regard to the euturtalnmeut of tho Emperor of brazil when lie visile Ihta city on bla return from Californio. Thu Committee have come to the conclusion that, as the Emperor eeoma to prefer to travel In this country as e prtvato citizen, and baa taken i-alua lo avoid as much as possible all public receptions, It will be more courteous on the part of Congress and the Govern tuent to allow blm to visit Waablugton without cere mony. The reiiort wblcb Ur.

Louib, Mo., April 2G.—The lost act of tbo great whiaky drama was presented to-day, when tbs venerable McKee was brought boforo tbe Bar for Boutenco. As a closing scone it was solemn and Impressive. A groat crowd was present. A deathly hash prevailed, and Judge Billon spoke with an emotionUiat thrilled every auditor. During tho delivery of tbo first part of tho sentence, McKee exhibited a marked nerv ousness, the muscles of his face twitching and trembling in a manner that showed an over mastering excitement. As tho Judge proceeded, however, tho defendant's nervousness became less apparent, as, when ho had progressed far enough to indicate the result, the old man’s face began to assume Us usual placidity of ex pression. It was plain that tbo termination of tho suspense which bad overshadowed blm so long would have been a genuine relief, bad it oven brought with it tbe most adverse of lodg ments. He bad, at least, escaped tbo Peniten tiary—tho calamity which be dre&dod with BCCII ABJECT PEAR, and a consummation which bis enemies hod so ardently hoped for. Wbou Judge Dilton pro nounced tbe dual conclusion of tbe sentence MoKoe exhibited a cheerfulness that agreeably surprised bis friends, many of whom thought ha would utterly break down if tho ultimate result was adverse. After the sentence was passed there was a busy stir la tbs court-room, many people pushing out to tell ths news, and others remaining to gaze at the defendant, who oat unmoved near hla counsel. When quiet had been restored, Judge Cram arose and sold: “ If the Court pltaso, wo ask that a suspen sion of sentence may be bad for tbe purpose of ena bling this defendant to obtain, S possible, a commu tation of hU sentence. We think that, under tbe circumstances, when tbe facts surrounding the defendant ore submitted to tho Executive, they *lll not ouly be regarded os proper grounds for Executive clemency, but tbo President will take such action aa will load to a commutation. Wo do not think this request unreasonable or improper, especially in view of the circumstances under which the defendant appears before tbe Court, Judge Dillon—lias tho District Attorney any sug gestion to make in this connection 7 Col. Dyer—No suggestion with reference to (bis matter, but 1 rise to call lb© mention of your Honors to tbo fact that, after your Honor Judge DlUon had left, two weeks ago, an application was made, aa I understand, to secure executive clemency in behalf of Constantino Maguire. I was applied to to secure a stay of execution till this application should be passed upon. Of course 1 bad no power In the premises, but 1 made a request for lb© delay desired, In order that I might not be con* ■ldrrod over-seaious. I bare now waited more than two weeks, and aa the case has not changed Its aspect 1 am unwilling longer to shoulder anymore responsibility hi thn premises. I foci (bat lam but doing my duty in withdrawing that request. Judge DlUon—With reference to tbe McKee caes, we would rather afford facilities than to throw obsta cles in tbo way of application to tho Executive Depart ment of the Government fordcmcncy. Hence we will adjourn court, when wo do adjourn, until two weeks from to-day. This Judgment will not be enter ed on record until that time; meantime tbo dafendsnt will bo required to give an additional recognizance of flii.ooo to that filed to appear hero at that time and submit (a the order of (bo Court. We find, on exami nation, that the recognizance in this particular c&ae Is only |l,ooo. This increase is not dictated by fear of tbe disappearance of the defendant, but by a custom which prevails in nil cases whero a motion In arrest of Judgment nss been overruled. BACK TO TUB UAOITQS CASE. Col. Dyer now entered into a more detailed state ment of tbo fact of tho Maguire case. Ho said that, only last Monday, be had received a circular which act forth that It was a rule of the Executive Depart ment that, before action lie taken on on application for commutation, format nntleu of the time l>o served on tho Court and on tho District Attorney where the raoo wan tried. This circular, thru, wxa the formal notice referred tn, and he (Dyer) acknowledged service, and sent It back to Washington on either Monday or Tuesday, He understood that Mr. Ma guire's friends were still at Washington working In hla behalf, but bn bad determined that It was hit duty not to countenance further delay. JUDGE TDEAT nsld that the counsel for tbs defendant hod Informed him that there was a rule lu tho Executive Department requiring, as stated by Col. Dyer, that notice bo served on the Judge and District-Attorney. lie hod told the parlies, os this was a novel proceeding, and entirely unknown to him during bis long experience on tbe Dench, be do sired to see (bo notice. They showed him a printed circular which road as G6l. Dyer had diacrlbed, and nut desiring totbiow any difficulties lu (he way, yet at (he nme time not desiring to concede any authority on tho part of tbe Executive Department to make him a party to these proceedings, bo hod Indorsed on the bock an acknowledgment that the paper hod been read to him, coupled with a statement that ha did not recognize any effect that such notice might be supposed to bare. This be did os a matter of courtesy to tbs Department, and to avoid giving rise to difficulties. Judge DlUon said that, in view of the fart that these notices ImV yet hardly bad time to roach Washington, he saw no reason why further delay ought not to be granted, and beucs the Court would take upon itself tbe responsibility of ordering that the matter remain lu statu quo until two weeks from to-day. THE eSMTCNCE waa quite brief, the Court coming to the point without much circumlocution, and wasting no lime In a review of the clrcumeUucee of the vase, aa these were deemed to be ao firs* m the mludi of the people as to reuder their narration unnecessary at this lime. Judge OilUou concluded u follow* : It will be observed Uiel, within certain limit*, the aUtuUa glvce to the Court a discretion u to the amount of punishment. We have a dlaeretlott to fix a pocunlary penalty to bo paid In the mm of 9tO,OtMI* There la a diacretlou alao m to tha place of imprison ment. the Uuguag* of the statute being 14 and to Imprisonment not more than two years •’ —this particular atatute not atatlng where (whether In (he County Jail or In the Penitentiary of the NUte) that Imprisonment ahall be bad. If we should con* alder only the magnitude of the alleged frauds in these W **’ If WB BUODLD CONSIDER THAT ONLY (for we must assume tu pronouncing Judgment that the verdict of the Jury is line).—lt would lead lha Court to pronounce the highest penalty and the severest pun* labuieut, bat when vre consider that certainty rather thin severity of puulahmout baa been shown, by the history of criminal laws and Jurisprudence In all countrice, to conduce to tho roost efficient administration of criminal law; that the object of JmUclal eentance la not primarily, U at all, to punish the offender, except eo far as ihu la necca* aary to the protection of society; that there la alao a civil liability for those frauds in actions on bonus or In so action aa at common law to the full extent, or to the full extent of the partloe’ ability to respond to them a# a criminal responsibility! andthal those penal pro* visions are largely Intended to aid ihla civil responsi bility and to prevent those frauds and become the Instrument of reimbursing the Government, that there la a dis Unction taken in the atatute, and one which 1 may remark also exists in reason and to the nature of things be tween official offenders and those who have occupied no official ixwlttous, broken no official oaths, and bo* trayed no official trusts,—thasa are circumstances, en the other baud, to be considered in mitigation ia af* Aung the amount of pumstunent.

I confess to another consideration which has great weight with me,—perhaps greater weight than it should burs,—that Is. the Indelible stain and stigma which attaches to Imprisonment In the Penl* tentlary,—not upon the man alone, but upon bis wlfo and children, and upon the latter after ba has gono from them, it is a terrible consequence of crime, that its dark shadow cover* the unoffending as well as ibo offender, end IT H A TXRtttfiLß THOUGHT that one's children sre likely to be tainted with it in after years,—that their father bae been In the Peni tentiary of the Bute. In felonies, among confirmed offenders, in.crimes Involving great turpitude, such punishment is absolutely necessary often, bat In mert misdemeanors, particularly when committed for the first time, it is to bo avoided where it can be con sistent with a sense of dnty. 1 would rather hare tbs reflection, when 1 Us down at night, that I bs<l erred—lf err I mutt—on tbe aide of mercy than on tbe Bide of undue severity. It wrlft glre sweeter sleep and leave behind It better memo ries. Now, considering all the circumstances of this case, without farther enlarging upon them, our Judg ment is that tbe defendant pay the maximum fine of Ito.ooo, and that be be Imprisoned in the County Jail for the spaoe of two years.

The circular saya i With a view to an honest collection of toe tax upon distilled spirits, and tbs prompt punishment of per sons engaged in defrauding tbo Government, I ask tbo cooperation of honest distillers, rectifiers, ana liquor-dealers. The experience of this office has been that, when fraud U being perpetrated by distillers, honest manufacturers and dealers aro among tbo first to discover it, but have, heretofore, been restrained from giving information to this office through fear oi being compromised in some way. or by ft natural aversion to being termed informers. It Is Li due to honest manufacturers a m well as to tho Government, that every gallon oft spirits placed upon tho market should pay the tax lm-. posed by law, and this result can only be through the vigilance of revenue officers, heartily talued by the honest portion of the trade. 1 there-' fore respectfully ask distillers and dealers in liquor* having knowledge of fraud, or good reason to suspedi 1U existence .to communicate the fact or snitpidon to* this office.
