Lay Instruction In tho regular school, which Is /infallible, was, In the estimation of tho learned .doctors forming tho Btato Medical Society, most Intolerable and not to bo endured. No Knowledge must bo Imported to the benighted and consequently murderous homeopaths. So the Society at Its session at Ann Arbor, a few flays since, passed resolutions severely censuring tho regular faculty for not resigning rather tlum Import the true and Infallible medical knowledge to tho homeopaths, so far as these students would receive It. Tho design, manifestly, Is to force tho Professors, under penalty of the pro* fcsslonal bon, to resign, thus breaking up tho medical school of tho University. What reflects most the narrow prejudice thus displayed is tho fact that It Is conceded by tho most advanced men of the allopathic school that In nearly all that relates to remedies their whole knowledge Is theoretical. Old remedies ore constantly be ing abolished from tho materta medlea , and old theories of treatment of disease discarded, only that experiment may be made with new reme dies and of new treatment, of which, because new, still less, If anything, Is known. Next to nothing definite bas yet been established os to the actual full effect upon tho system of more than nine-tenths the drugs enumerated In the pharmocopcetaa. Of the remaining one-tenth, very little Is certainly known. The whole sub ject belongs to the domain of tho experimental, ■conjectural, and unknown, so Unit every physi cian has his own theories absolutely Incapable of demonstration, which (s precisely why doc tors disagree. And yet because these thco .ries cannot bo dogmatically crammed Into the homeopaths, but these are still allowed to go on teaching their own theories, tho Michigan Medical Society ■would break down the University medical school by forcing the regular Professors to resign rather than Impart to homeopathic students tho Infallible regular truths as to physiology, etc. ■That sort of narrow Intolerance, it seems, ob tains In tho Michigan Medical Society to bar the progress of tho edcnco. It is to bo trusted that it does not obtain elsewhere In respectable cir cles In the profession. At all events, it cannot succeed In this ago In an Institution of learning maintained by the people, and If tho Michigan University School Is to bo either closed or given -over to such UUbcrallsm and dogmatism as pro posed by the Society, by all means let it bo dosed. A letter received from Memphis by the edi tor says: “Our Republican State Convention meets to-morrow. I think Bristow's friends will secure half the delegation, and Morton’s the other half. Tbo blacks generally are for Morton, and all the whlto Republicans, except some office-holders, are for Bristow. The lat ter has been gaining strength In this State very rapidly during the past few weeks. If the Mob ton delegates sec no chance for him, Uicy will all go over to Bristow as their second choice. A good many of tbo more Intelligent colored men begin to see that the true policy Is to nominate Bbistow, os thou sands of old Whigs and Unionists will .support him, while not one of them would touch Morton or Conklino. It would be rash to assert that Bristow could carry Tennessee, but I assure you he would come so near it that the Confederates would have to hump them selves to beat him. He can get 20,000 more votes than any Republican candidate ever before received In Tennessee. I hear old Whigs and former Union men every day declare that If Bristow Is nominated they propose to pull'out of the Democratic party, os they have had enough of State Sovereignty, and secession, and fire-eating, and won’t train with that crowd any longer. Tennessee Is full of this feeling.” Don Carlos will not stay suppressed. lie Is once more at work, having advised his partisans to return to Spain and form a coalition with tho extreme parties, so as to render the position of the Government untenable. With reference to this advice tho Espana tenders Don Carlos the following counsel: If Don Carlos know what was now tho opinion nf those who were a few weeks ago his followers, he would carefully abstain from addressing to them any kind of advice. The 50,000 Hpanlards who fought beneath his flag are now bis irrcconcll ble enemies, and it Is only natural that such should be the case; for Don Carlos, owing to his military and political incapacity, inflicted Irreparable In jury upon his party. It is of little consequence, therefore, what advice Don Cantos may give to those who formerly served his cause. If bo coun sels to do one thing, wo may take It for grunted they will do the very contrary. The minds of the friends of order may then rest easy, for civil war will not again be waged on bebalt of Don Carlos, The Rev. Philip Brooks, an eminent Episco palian clergyman of Boston, is likely to under go the experiences of Prof. Swing, not exactly for heresy, but for an offense against ecclesias tical orders. Tho deadly crime which tho Rev. Brooks has perpetrated Is In permitting an un licensed clergyman to assist him In performing a marriage ceremony, and for this tho heinous wretch Is to be dragged before au ecclesiastical tribunal'for trial. The dispatches do not state who the unlicensed clergyman Is. lie may have been a deacon, or an unordolncd clergyman, or a clergyman of some other denomination, but that la immaterial. It Is a question out of which a very fierce quarrel may grow, and the Rev. Brooks 1s likely to be tho centre of a great dotd of Interest. Who tho Patton will bo re mains to bo seen. One ot the planks of the Ohio Democratic platform reads: 7/*That public policy and a sense of common Justice requires that tbe silver issued by tbo Gov ernment should bo a legal-tender in payment of ail debts, nubile or private, and that wo demand tho unconditional repeal of tho ao-callcd Silver act, so ferae the same limits tho amount for which said silver coinage shall be a legal-tender. This reads In curious contrast with preceding and succeeding planks in the some platform, which propose a currency to consist exclusively of Interconvertible 8.C5 per cent bonds. What do they want with silver, if tho currency Is to be rebound and back-action bonds! Tbo first resolution of thu Ohio Democratic plalform reads: "The immediate ami uncondi tional repeal of tho Republican Resumption law." Against this resolution 800 delegates Voted and 803 for it. Tito ouly comment that need bo made Is, that lb Is ratber late to call thu Resumption act a Republican measure, seeing that half of the Democrats in Congress support It. No bill or resolution to repeal It has received even a serious consideration from tho Democrats In Congress, including tho Ohio delegation therein. Hardly had the Democracy of Ohio taken up* on themselves the filial exaltation of tbo vcner able septuagenarian patriarch, Dill, than Ute other branch of tbo family, la Indianapolis, have raised tho banner of the oven more ancient octogenarian, I’etbr Cooper, of New York. Can it bo that thcso people think that In this Centennial year the country must elect men horn In the days of the Revolution, ami that wo must have a worthless paper currency now be* cause we had such currency wheu Alxbn and Cooper were boys!

Tho New York Herald publishes an editorial par- • ograph vaguely hinting at the possibility of tho « death of Stanley In Africa. Nothing had been , heard from the intrepid explorer since April, 1875, until Tuesday, when a cable dispatch brought news . of an envelope received by Col. Gordon bearing tho direction of Stanley, but containing only a I scrawl in a strange band, the purport of which is not known. It is thought that Stanley mayhavo : sent this envelope to Gordon as on eloquent sign of his inability to tell more of hisdesperato circum- , stances; or, on tho other hand, U may bo that tho Herald, according to Its custom, Is trying to work up a small sensation by telling half-truths. I “Roddy,, the Blacksmith," tho must and unrelieved rulllau Now York City has seen for ! a generation, had a beautiful funeral last week. ! The body was dressed In whito satin (os a token of 1 tho purity of the deceased). Tho coffin had heavy silver ornaments. Not less than 3,000 persons, of ’ all classes, and composed of all grades of society,, viewed tho remains. At tho head of tho coffin stood an anchor and cross of tuberoses, resting on a bed of violets and moss, with the inscription, 11 At reel, " artistically worked in violets and pan sics.

On the opening of Conrt yesterday morning the usual time was spent In disposing of somu prosaic civil motlujis, after which the Court or dered the ease omtrlal to proceed. Ex-Dlstrlct- Attomey Ward was called again. The Court said he adhered to his previous decision,—that the defense could not bring out what was brought out on iltftr cross-examination. They could not Interrogate Mr. Ward os to the alleged payment of §SOU to him by llehm, because it was brought out -on their cross-examination, and not on the direct. Mr. Ward woa then cnoos-ExxsnwßO by District-Attorney Dangs. It was a spectacle seldom witnessed,—an cx-District Attorney being held over tfic Urc by his successor. Mr. Ward testified-: I am a lawyer;! came here*twenty-three years ago. I havo known Rolan, but 1 cuu’tsuy 1 have been on Intimate terms with tlilm. I first began my political career here In 1854. I never en gaged In u campaign actively with him. 1 have been with him, os I was wIQi other men, sup ported tho same ticket and was at the some meetings, bat 1 never traveled much with him nor was Intimate with hfan. I was first made Alderman, iu 1856, ran for City Attorney and was defeated; then was Alderman again. 1 next ran for State Senator in 1803, after I was liy tho oxmy, and was elected'lor four years; ran a second time and was re-elected, W hile a member, and L think before in y second election, I was a candidate for nomination for Congress man. I think Rchm did not actively co-operate with mo In those campaigns. 1* don’t recollect visiting his house, or having any appointments with him. Ridun got sick when 1 was a candi date before tho Convention, and I may have said that his sickness hurt me with tho Germans. But there were other reasons fur my defeat. We have not been frequently companions. We were not in the same districts,- but I saw more or less of him. I imd no private Interview last October with hhu ut Powell's. Became to my house once or twice. I had no Interview with him j»t Powell’s in Juue, 1875, when the.subject of TUB DISTILLERS’* ROOKS cnmc up. TJichc boots wcrc mot In my custody. They wore kept In tho Marshol’« office. They were brought Into my office for ommlnntlon because the room wasnnoru HtiUablc for Chat purpose. Thu distillers came to my otllce, Commissioner Hoynu wm notified, ami they were allowed to examine them. I don’tknoav tluU any of them mysteriously disappeared aflcrwunla. They were removed Into tho Mondial's office. I uwer told Rchtn that Junkorcould come and see tho books, and I never told him that if any of the books were missing I couldn't help It. 1 think Rohm's being called be fore the jury was one of tho imbjccw they discussed, and I discussed It with them among tho first things. I may have eng. gested it, und certainly was in favor of it. I dldirb say to him he needn't have any concern, and that all I was going to examine him on was his malt* house books. I may have sold "I wont to exam ine you about your mult-books." lie asked me at the door, “ Wfmt do non want of mo heroT" and so I told him. lacked'him a good many questions, and so did Mr. King. Mr. (lodge, Mr. bamnsun, and others. I was interrupted while in attendance on the Jury. I DELIBVBD JAKE KNEW ALL ABOUT THIS CROOK EDNESS, and I asked questions In accordance with that Idea. There hud been no squealing then, and all we rot was a few hints from the detectives. Brooks. Tutton, and others. I rememlwr lulling Illuford Wilson, Yoxyun. und others about this, and I think I told Mr. IJnrko of It I can't say I told Col. Matthews tiiu&l thought Itchm was In the Ring. I think I talked with Mr. King about It I spoke with IHoford Wilson before the Grand Jury mot; it was fu tho curly part of the summer. 1 guvo my suspicions abont it I don't remeudwr saying anything about it to Mr. Ayer or the others, for they were doing one kind of work and I another. I never met the distillers and retailed testimony to th m. niLDRBTII met mo here onwmnrnlng and said George Miller was a good fellow, and ho felt sorry for him. So dull. I always felt sorry for anynodyln trouble, oven before I got into trouble myself. Hildreth wanted to know if the thing couldn't be made more easy, but 1 said it would have to tuko its course llko every other nmttcc. I never kept my thumb on thu Investigation, .or tried to smother things, I recommended SLIGHTER, and believed him honest. 1 didn't hear his Integ rity questioned. He was well recommended. I" stioko to Mr. Wlmdow. the Department reporter, about HUchlor, and he recommended him. IF knew tho reports got out. Any material J fact before your own Grand Jury was* known to thu public. I have discovered thatu. Grand Jury is not so secret us It Is supposed tube before the law. I simply got a caution in relation to HUchter, hut lie denied everything In such» strong terms that I believed him more than ever. I am certain that Ruhm was before the Jury twice; I could not confound him with Dnrphy. 1 think 1 asked him If be knew any thing about this crooked business; I commenced several examinations, and tbe Jurors interrupted mu, and 1 always gave np of course. Tam pretty sure ho was asked these ■ questions, and 1 think 1 asked him thu tlrat time. I 1 have known Powell for fourteen years; never] communicated any testimony to him about bis case. i By Col. Ingersoll—No regular order won ob* served In examining wllnevdcu; tbo jury asked ! 3ueatlons when they nlcami. I resigned, and udgo Bungs was appointed in tny place. 1 never thought Dexter or Ayer worked to have mo nut out. My relations with them were on the most cordial footing. I never subpectcd they were work* lug against me, nor do 1 think differently now. I haven't uny doubt they wore my friends. I had no object in keeping information from them of any* thing Important to the Government, ami I did not, either. They were kept pretty well informed by the re|>ortur mill Mr. Ulesoo, ami. then drew up the bills, which was (heir regular business. I did not endeavor to screen Jake Holim, ami be hud no information in hi* possession against# mu of which I was afraid. 1 did not stifle any lu* vestlgatlon in any wuy. I performed my duty faithfully and honestly. By Mr. Ayer—bitchier did not write out all hi* notes and furnish than to the Jury. You ami. lloulcll drew the big whisky indictments, and llurku drew the rcet I staid one night and helped you, os you remember. You bad llrooks with you constantly, and be knew more about the business than any and all of the witnesses before the Jury, and I thought bis knowledge wua of more value than the reporter's uotes. MINOR WITNESSES. 1. N. BUCK, Deputy United fitutes Marshal, was tho next witness, llu sworo to serving subpoenas on Jacob Rchm twice to appear before thu October Urand Jury, and recounted the difficulties which ho had lu finding and getting Juko before that body. In cross-examination, by Mr. Ayer, witness said Jako was found tho first tlmu at tho City- Hall. Ho did not suu him go Into the Grand Jury room. Tho next time, alter looking every where, Jako was met ou tho street and served with tho paper. Witness summoned a good many witnesses It 'ore that Grand Jury, but could uot say how many. Mr. Rohm cams with him to the Jury when ho served tho subpoint*. CLINTON BRIGGS was next placed on tho stand. Ho deposed: I was a member of tho October Grand Jury, and recollect Jake Tlchm being before us. My lin presslon is that he was asked whether ho knew nnything of tho crooked whisky business, and that he answered In the negative. CROSS-EXAMINATION. Hy Mr. Ayer: Mr. Durphy was examined twice before tho Grand Jury In relation to the ISO barrels of whisky, tho receipts of which were sup|M>6cd to be in Itnlmi’n name. Tho first time Rehm whs before us bo wus (picstioned about his malt books. I ilo not know who put tho ques tion In regard to the whisky frauds. A short hand reporter was present, who look down the tes timony. (The report of the evidence of Juke Itchm before the Grand .Jury was then rend to wit ness. 1 According to my recollection, that Is a fair report of.the testimony. 1 do not recollect any other point* not appearing In the report. by Mr. lnperson: After hearing tho evidence read, 1 have still the hoprcs-lon that Mr. Itchm was asked generally About crooked transactions, and that he replied “No.” Mr. King brought In a slip of paper with Itohm's signature nn. but that was after the examination now in question. CONKLIN. Hy permission Mr. Conklin was recalled, and ex amined bv Mr. Ingenious 1 was In this city in tho spring of *1876, 1 then saw n man named Dan K. Tenny, with whom I rode from here to Cedar Rapids. <b— Did yon on that Journey say to him these words: “ Munn Is nu honest man. The distillers have tried to capture him often enougli, but they never did it. They cannot do It. 1 know that ho Is iticorrupilblot" A.—l don’t recoiled having any conversation on that subject. If I did have any, I spoke of Mr. Munn hlgfily. Col. Ingcrroll, after dismissing this witness, caused a flatter In the court by Inquiring: “la A. C. Hosing lo the hoosol” There wan no response, and the Court directed Mr. Ilcaing to bo sent for. In the meantime, OIL O. OSGOOD was called. He testified; I know Conklin and Munn. I waa present In Munn’s office when they spoke of Mturn's removal. In the talk tho question cume up, and the remark was made by Conklin, while two or three were In the ofllco, that Mnmi was out of office, flat on hls backside, or something like that, but that opportu nities had been presented to make money, and he was too pious, or conscientious, to uvuil himself of it On the crow-examination witness raid Mr. Pope nml Mr. Almond, und perhaps Mr. Bridges, were In esent nt the Interview referred to. Tills was after I unit's removal, but lie was mill about the ulllco. TIIO9. H. M’CLBLLAN, tlie lawyer, was called. Hu testified: I was In Canada in March. 1 was introduced to Conklin. Thera he sit* (pointing him out). Iluasid Homebody had been there to see him relative to the Mnmi indictment. lie told mo lucUuci that be knew yiotliing uguliist Mmm. CROSS-EXAMINED. % think he said ho knew no more abont Mnnn than the person did who asked him. I w ent over to see lli'ldges at Windsor, and saw him nt u hotel. By Col. Ingcrsoll: Minin had nothing to do with my going, and I thluli ho knew nothing of my Ingcmoll offered a certified copy of the In dictment against Mr. Conklin in Wisconsin, and the record of' how it was dispoeed of, with a view to contradict tliat witness on lhai point. Tide was objected to hy Mr. Aver, who was sup ported by thu Court. Conuscl, however, were di rected to examine the documents during recces, and see whether the objection should be pressed. Co). Ingcrsoll then proceeded to call Dim K. Tenny to prove the conversation with Conklin which the latter dld-not recollect. Thu Court thought the evidence inadmissible. 11. M. MUNN, brother of the defendant, was the next witness. After some preliminary questions, the witness said 1 know Jake Rehm. unu remember meeting him, about the time of the imUclmeuls on Jlouroo struct q._Di,i you at Mint time ask him if ho knew of anything against your brother, D. W. Munn? A.— 1 did. sir. o.—What did he reply? A.—He replied to me, “ There Is nothing agafnfilMunu that 1 know of. Tl«ry have not gut anything against Dau; you need noOiKJ alarmed about it" Was that the time some little things were appearing In the papers to the effect that they were in pursuit of D. \V. Munn? A.—lt was a very few days before it was rumored that Bridges and Hoyt hod ‘ * skipped out," as they call it, and it was Just upon, the eve of the squealing by Mr. Rehm. Q,—Were you ever in the office of Jacob Rehm whonyour brother, the defendant, was there? A.—Yes, sir, about a year ago. I recollect that Dan came in; I think he said lie was going to Wis consin. S.— Do yon remember whether at that time Mr. ,m handed your brother anything? A.—l rec ollect of his giving him a letter—l think it was a letter of Introduction—to thu Superintendent of Police at Milwaukee. I saw Mr. Rehm take half a slmetof paper out of drawer, and sit down and write a short letter, which he gave to my brother. TlioCourt Mien took a recess. On the reassembling of Court In the afternoon, Mr. D. W. Munn was again placed on thu stand, and, undunCul. Ingoraoll's examination, testified ns follows: Thin Incident at Rchm's office was op the let or nth of April.

Hcbm ant down, wrote the letter, ond gave It to my brother. I think my brother went to Milwaukee that day. Tie wan ttoneonlyvi very abort time. This could not have icon as lau> as the iitlth of April, for I bad no more business with Rehni after that time. When 1 met Jake on Moiwoo street I said, “Jake, they're af ter you pretty hot, but you’ren politician, ami may be you’ll pull out. There are Intimations that my brotiker is likely to he involved. Now, do you know anything against him?" Jake replied: ** There Is nothing against him. I know of noth- IngngnlnstUiin, and you needn’t lake any trouble tthontil." A. C. lIESING. TUB DIRECT EXAMINATION. A.*C. nosing was then placed ou the stand, bis ap pcaranco creating quite a sensation in the court- room. Col. Ingcrsoll examined him as follows: Q.—-What Is your namel A.—Antony C. Hca- Ing. Q.—How long have you lived InChlcogol A.— In Chluigo and the neighborhood since 1654. Q.—Airoyou acquainted with u mau of the namu oflJucob Kelim? A.—l am.

When the news cumo from Washington that Muun had been superseded or dismissed, 1 asked him “ Jukjj, did Munn have anything to do with tills 1 ” ' Bajn ho “ He didn’t.’ 1 Q,—Do- you recollect the Kmc In October, 1675, when Deputy Collector Hoyt endeavored to gut before the (Irand Jury to make certain iHM'sonu] explanations t A.—l recollect that he intended to go to the Grand Jury—yes, sir. Q.—Did you«al>out that time have a conversa tion with Jacob Kuhm relative to Mr. Hoyt In which he Haldtltero was nothing against Iloyt aud .Hint he couhlTiut bo Indicted? * Mr. Ayer oldoctcd to the question. The Court—why, Mr. Ayer? . .Mr. Ayer—lt is Immaterial, your Honor. Mr. (Hoy l Is not indicted here. The Court—No, sir; hut the evidence on the part lof the prosecutlou from Mr. Itohio brought Mr. Illoyt into the conspiracy. Ur. Ayer said thu prosecution had elicited noth , flag from Mr. Itchm Involving Ur. Iloyt. Cok Ingoreoll pointed out Uint Itchm had stated that lur paid money to the Collectors, Judge Uoolltlie read from Tub Tiunrars's report of Juke's testimony to show that he had aieutlunod Iloyt among others as one to whom he had paid mouey. It was perfectly legitimate, undar the cir cumstances, to fmiulro tutu this matter. After further discussion thu Court all cured the testimony. Thu question was then repeated to witness* when he answered: 1 hud a general CONVmUTION WITH Wit. ÜBUU IS RBOija* TO UOVT. Q.—At that time? A.—At that time, imd'ho'dld state that Ur. Hoyt woe Innocent, or, as Ur. Uoiuu ulvvaye used to say. ’• he was not in itthat Ur. Hoyt would demand admission to the Grand Juryu that he would produce there correspondence be tween him ami Ur. lingers, a Treasury ofllcer aU Woalitngtou; that he hadnollfltd Mr. Hogera about' crookedness In Chicago, and demanded on Investi gation,; andtliatUr. Hogera had answered that hot would eend somebody down here. (i,—And that this correspondence would clear* Ur. Hoytr A.—And this comspoodcucu would' clear Mr. Hoyt. Q.--HOyou remember the time at which the. motion to quash the Indictment against Hoyt ww» arguud In tula courtl A.—ldo. Q. —l)o you recollect of Col.

Hebm in regard to the quashing 1 of tbe.indictuent, os well as with Col. Juesouo, Ur. Ciunpbell, and Judge Doolittle. It wans agreedtupon among the lawyers that they should! 1 nut uni)’argue the quashing of the Indictment,, but also the separation of toe defendants,—Ur. Hoyt and bit co-cousplrator. I think he was In-* dieted vilth another gentleman, but forget who it* woe. JudgoTDoollUle—Ur, Hebm and jrouraelf. . Witness (laughing)—Ob, yes. There were two* Indictments, If i racoltach_a|ih»f Hoyt—one aep-- orate and one Jointly with Ilcnm sipd myMlf. ■' Q.— IwOlgsß you If at that Halt Jacob Baton said to yon that TToyt was as innocent as a child. A.—Cob Jnessen, Mr. Kehm, and myself came ant of tho Court-House together, and I think we went to Lndwlg's and took dinner. On tho way there Mr. Rchm said it must be “ pushed that Mr. Hoyt gets n separate trial; tho man la Innocent; he hs« not had anything to do with a conspiracy in Chicago,” mort emphatically, In the presence of Col. Jnessen and myself. Q.— I will ask you If, at tho same time, he told yon to tell Doolittle to hare Hoyt tried; that ho had nothing to feart A.—No, sir; not at the same time. O.—When was that. Mr. Hcslngt A.—That was at the time, I think, that Hoyt was called up for trial,—when his cose was called up for trial. About two or three days t>cfore that trial Mr. Itchm told me. I had a conversation In regard to this coming trial. Tt was at that time Mr. Hoyt’s cose was to tie called up In tho Court here. It was the time that Itchm and myself pleaded guilty; I think the same morning. If I am not mistaken, the trial waa to come up or was called. If I recol lect right. I may vary a little, but I think that was before the time. A couple of day* before that 1 had a conversation with Mr. Itchm, and bis argu ment was this, and that wan before be had pleaded guilty, of course. Soys he, “Mr. Hcsfng. wu must not let Hoyt go to trial. The whole thing will come out at present, and I at least can’t aflord It," and then asked mo to go to Mr. Hoyt or to go to Mr. Dow or to Doo little and tell them that If ho was called upon the stand against Mr. Hoyt, bo would have to testify that he paid him some money. Thstwaa the first time lie told me almut paying him money. I thereupon met the same day young Doolittle. ({.— No matter about that. Had he told you before that to tell Doolittle to havolloyttrledf A. —Yea, sir. (i. —There was nothing against hlmt A.—Nothing against him. And I went over to Mr. Dow and told him that he'd better tell Mr. Hoyt to go away If he didn't want to be sent down. (£. —That was after the second time? A-—That waa after the second time. That was when Uehia bad assured mo he paid Hoyt some money. O.— Did you bare a conversation with Jacob Itchm In the fall or winter of 1874 In which lie said to you'that be Intended, or won going to try, to have A MAN BY TIIB NAME OP BECK APPOINTED Commissioner of Internal Revenue— 1 mean Super visor T Did yao or not T A. —I did. ti.— Did he, In that conversation, tell yon that he was wanting to liavc a man by tho name of Itcck appointed Supervisor of Internal Revenue t A. <£.—Did he In the same conversation tell you that It was bis Intention to have Mr. Munn up pointed Commissioner of Internal Revenue, or wus there any such talk? A. —lie did. PARWKLL AND WAtJJI HE3INO. Q.—-Well, sir, you may state now that conversa tion. A.—lt was during the campaign of Mr. Far well when he mn for Congress, and tny son was also a candidate. There was a great pressure brought to bear upon roe to use my influence with my son to got him to retire. One day Mr. 11. B. Miller came to my office and Bays he, “Mr. lies for.

Mr. lleaing,is your son going to moke the fight?" bays I: “He is," Soys he; “Can’t you get him off the track!" Says 1: “Mr. Itchm, I have nml all possible means, all the pcmuoslon 1 am able to, also of his mother, to get him off the track, hut he is determined to run. ‘ “Well,” says he, “It will cost you a great deal of money." Says I: “I know it will, and which 1 cannot atford to pay. Yon know my circumstances, and to run against Mr. Furwell it will cost mo money that 1 cannot afford to pay, and Washing ton also," lie then sold: “Mr. lleslng, 1 have advices from Washington City that in a short time charges are going to be made in the Revenue De partment.

That is the expression he used. 1 said to him, “Mr. Rehm, you talk about Mr. Munn. You have always told me that Mr. Mmm was not in this arrangement Whenever 1 nut the question to you you always denied it How Is this!" • ‘ Well," says be, “I know he Is out In It, but when I try 1 VERT SELDOM FAIL OP CORRUPTING A MAN, or using a man, or getting a man.

'When he went, or tried, he didn't very often fail? A.—l said. “Mr. Rehm, no money would In fluence me to sell my sou. He is too dear to mo to sell him for a consideration." Then I told, again continuing thu conversation, “I am in a financial distress, 1 know. If you will cash my paper you cun accommodate me. 1 will not give a note to pledge my eon on that account, nor will I pledge the paper to support Mr. Parwell." He cashed my own paper at 1U per ceut interest, which is to-day out. 6.—With collateral security? A,—With some collateral security. Q.—You may say, Mr. lleslng, whether you se duced Mr. Jacob Rehm? [Laughter.] A.—That is too ridiculous; no. o.—Do you not admit you are the father of the child spokufi of by him? [Uproarious laughter, checked by the Court, who bad to smile himself. 1 A.—Not much.

CROSS-EXAMINATION, A LITTLE IH3TOHV. By Mr. Ayer: Three ludletmunts have been found against me in this Court. On one of them 1 pleaded guilty, and no dlsposltlou had been made of the others. 1 have beeu connect ed with a newspaper here since 16G1 Before that I was Sheriff. 1 havo not hod any other of fice In this county. I was a candidate for Coun ty Treasurer last fall. 1 bought a tliinl interest In the Kellogg Distilling Company in 1870. Col. Ingcrsoll objected to the cross-examina tion going into these matters. Witness hud pleaded guilty on ouo Indictment, and other charges were peuding against him, and the an swers thus obtained might be used to his preju dice. The Court sold no such use could bo mode of them. Witness continued: When I returned from Europe, In November, 1871, the distillery was burned. I was not Interested In a distillery with U. B.

There was an incumbrance on the property, the Connecticut Mutual Life-Insurance Company hold ing a mortgage for $20,000. ThU covered the ad joining property, and It became necesary to have the promises released. I gave Powell a check on the Fourth National for SU.OOO. Powell learned Unit the Government had to have a clear title, and wanted mo to get tho mortgage released. The In surance company agreed to release that portion for SO,OOO.

I got the check back after Powell paid Hoyt the check. It was not presented for pay ment, but woald have been paid. 1 don't know who sent It back. It came through the mall. Pow ell since said be conld get along without Rohm,and I asked how. Ho said I'OPR HAD ARRIVED. I never told Rohm that Pdwell had an arrangement with Pone or Muno, but I might have said 1 thought he had another arrangement, but didn’t muullon any names. 1 was a nicmlxr of the Oppo sition at that time, but I did not favor my son’s running. I made no arrangement to have my bou withdraw for a monetary consideration. My son did withdraw. I got $25,000 from Messrs. Harwell and Ward, fur which 1 gave notes. My sun w orked day and night In opposition to Mr. Harwell. 1 worked against Mr. Ward daring that campaign. Mr. Rehm and myself have been members of the same political party, and have been very intimate. I had a conversation with Mr. Hchm in my office about Mr. Hoyt, when be slated that Hoyt was In nocent. No one else waa present when we had this conversation. This was during the time when the fraud Jury wan In session, and a lung lime before Mr. Hoyt left the city. I have had runyuENT conversations with mr. rehm about the officer*, and he never would admit hav ing any understanding wlUi any of them until ho was about to lav down. 1 bud serious doubts in my own mind whether he )md such Influence as he now claims. Mr. Fredricks has never spoken to me about Mr. Munn or any of tho other distiller*. When he came he used to present a detailed ac count of the month’s tran*acUon, and pay roe my proportion. I never beard from any one that Mr. Matin had anything to do with the matter wliat ever. 1 was at the Chicago £ Alton depot with Rehm during tho session of the Leg islature, but did nut in my presence scud Adolph Mueller to warn the distiller* that Mann was about to visit them. On that occasion Mr. Rehm look the gentleman to one side and told him something, but 1 don’t know what Uy Mr. Ingcrsoll—As a matter of fact, was there any fraud In tho burnlng-fiuid transaction?

I made up my mind long before that 1 was ready to plead guilty, if they would let me, and Mr. itehm and! had several conversations about it. O.—Was that the first time “he ever told you be had paid money to any officers ? A. —Yes. This concluded Mr. Ucslng’s evidence, and the Court adjourned to this morning. IN GENERAL. MILWAUKEE. JONAS—SOME PHILOLOGY. Special Dispatch to The Tribune. Milwaukee, Wlb., May 18.—In tho conspiracy trial to-day tbo whole of the morning was taken up by a discussion of the accuracy of the trans lation of on article In tho Chicago Utaale-Zeitung written by witness Grimm, which article was put in by tho defense, and has an Important bearing an the cose as going to establish tho theory of this being a conspiracy on tbo port of tbo Whisky Ring, assisted by Mr. Me- Kenny, to punish Gen. Hedrick, which fell short of the General and stopped short at the Intended tools, —namely, these de fendants.—witness Grimm having detailed in bis correspondence a statement to the effect that he heard Rlndskopf state it was Hedrick,—not the defendants,—he was after. The discussion lasted till the dinner-hour, and simply estab lished the fact that various persons have various views as to the correct English rendering of a German word. MR. UDCRLRT, DEPUTY MARSHAL, was then called by tho prosecution and proved that he was in charge of tho defendants on their being arrested and brought to the Newhall House, this city, and never beard Louis Illndxkopf mention Hedrick’s name, or say onythlngof the kind spoken of in the accounts given by witnesses for the de fense, of the NewhaU House Interview. In cross-examination, witness said be was em ployed as Deputy-Marshal in both tbo Western and Eastern Districts of this State at one time, and acted as detective and guardian of McKinney’s papers, and getting up evidence In these cases. Did notbelievo Hludskopf spoke os testified toby witnesses Grimm, McOprigk, andMahr; If he did it must have been after witness went up-stairs with his prisoners. JOHN tIOEKB, DEPUTT MARSHAL, was the next witness, and detailed in a very dear and distinct manner tho circumstances attending his detail to the Nowhall House to assist Uuckley in the charge of tiro prisoner* there. He could swear positively that Louis lUndskonf did not say anything of the kind sworu to by Maur, McGarlgie, and Shipman. In cross-examination, witness qnnliflcd this posi tive statement by saying he did not hear such con versation, and believed It could not have taken place without Ids hearing. The testimony of these witnesses, as opposed to bis own. bo said, did not shake his confidence in his own memory, hut did shake his confidence In theirs. This was tho whole of the rchnttal evidence of the prosecution. DEFENSE RECALLED LOUIS COHEN, but the first and second questions were objected to, and considerable time was lost. Finally witness was allowed to answer, and said, with reference to (be statement of witness Herxoff, the Detroit Con stable called to Impeach his (Cohen’s) character, that Big Cohen kept a faro-table, that said Cohen never kept a faro-table, or bad any connection with a faro-table in his life. WILLIAM BTAPLBDON, a reporter on the Sentinel, was next sworn, and testified to the fact that the defendants at tho Now 'ball House were scattered, and never fur any length of time In one place, within distinct hearing either of Hucklcy or llurko.

London, April 22.—The acquisitions constantly* made by the authorities of the British Museum threaten to compel tho enlargement of the already vast hells of tbo edifice. During the last year Ihor* were added to tbo library,—well, now, guess bov# many volumes? Think of it a moment. The li brary is already immense; when one enters It fot* the first time bo is overpowered by a sense of tbo ' vastness of Us contents; but of tbo making of book* there is no end, and of tbo discovery of old book* and manuscripts there seems to bo no limit. However, there arc only 305 days In a year, Sundays Included; and now guess how many volumes tho library added to Itself every day last year, taking one day with another. Ten, perhaps, or twenty, or, as an ex travagant guess, fifty.

Out of these, no less than 45, - 337 were acquired by purchase: tho rest were re ceived under tbo laws of English copyright or un der tho international copyright treaties, or were presented. The number of readers in the library daring the year was 105,310, or 300 every day; and tho number of volumes consulted by them wo* 1,404,000. Among the acquisitions of the post year are six copies of "Indulgcnclcs" printed) on vellum and of very great rarity. One of theta. Is a copy of the "Indulgence” granted by Popo* LooX. through Albert, Archbishop of Hcuti, to, those of the faithful who, after making a good; confession and obtaining absolution, shonid con tribute to the building or Bt, Peter’s at Homo.
