ftg honnr now nhnnn hint ImlHd of Inlni In Minot* at ValUdolhl, ho deserved to pass hU last r»T« In all the Inxnry the times could afford. He* *llle 1* proud of the possession of hi* remains, and Ino of tue Orel objects shown you on vlnlttnpr her rnlhedrAl la tho spot whore hla boon* are resting, benenth the mnrblo alnh biarlmr (he Inscription, vbleii we may translate an literally as poulblu: Columbus hail given a Now World to im Kingdoms of Cuttle and l.eon. There I* no other armor-ault of Importance In the collection. Botno are finer; hntthoybelonged only to Kings and Dukes, and that aort of follows, tery insignificant parties when contrasted with the dlicorererof America. Just beyond this collec tion. there are several geological specimens from various parts of the cunnlry; and beyond these wo and some oils from run mn.irriNß n»i.ANn9, ■oma mineral and some vegetable. Thera am bills, baskets, and other lhlugn of line grass and other materials, woven sit closely that they will hold water nfter being a lltllo swollen, and quite equal to the Panama hats which have long boon popnlar In this country for Hammer-wear. There are also come clothes from the Philippines; but all arc of light textnro, and evidently .designed for use In a country where the climate Is very worm, and the chief purpose of clothing Is ornamental, or to respond to a certain fastidiousness of society. On the whole. tho exhibit from the Philippines Is rather small, but probably them Is not a very extensive lot of product* there. The Spanish section In Agricultural Hall Is not yet open to tho public, and so 1 am nnahlo to eny what It contains. It may have many things from the Orient which do nut belong In the Main Building, ■nd thus account for the limited exhibit I have Just described. BPANISn TEXTILES. Barcelona and Valencia make the best showing «f all the cities of Spain In the way of textiles, and of these two Barcelona Is abend. Hho has •ome excellent blankets and shawls, made from the One wool tor which Spain Is famous; and the blanket*. In particular, remind yon of those from California which I described In me letter on Ameri can textile* last week. They aro bleached to a ■nowy whiteness, and are evidently softand warm. Valencia has some blankets of the same kind, and innally good; but they art not bo abundant In variety. Barcelona has long been known as one of the most progressive and enterprising of the Span ish cities, ami has a commerce which steadily In creases In spite of the general apathy which 5 retails all over the Kingdom. Her linens and mi cr-clothing have an English Anpearancc, and sev eral coses arc well tilled with them; and there Is a general assortment of cloths, blankets, and other articles from wool, cotton, flax, and other textile lubstancca. Some of the cloths resemble Meltons; but I cannot see that they do so more than to the eye, as they were covered with glass, and I was not permitted to handle them. Close by the cloths, there U a case full of playing-cards. Sirne of them of very curious designs, which would p quite unintelligible to the artists In draw-poker irho abound on Western steamboats and railway train*. Some have theordlimry figures of spades, hearts, clubs, and diamonds; others have an odd lot if dragoons, swords, suns, and other known de signs; while others have some mysterious illustra tions to which it is impossible to givo n name. Let me air a little wisdom of the "notes and queries'* style, and say that the term "spade,” as applied to our playing-cards, comes from the Spanish "tspada," which means a sword, and not the hon est and unphlcbotomlcallnstrumcnt whose use Is as sociated with (he garden or the railway-laborer. The playing-card is a Spanish Invention, and those who win money by its use ought to do iionor to the country whicn has brought them the means of for tune, and consequent happiness. There is a good display of cordage, but not equal to that in other sections belonging to countries where executions are performed with the rope, and not, as In Spain, with the garrotc. An attract ive feature of tue exhibit la a case of fans CUT IN IVORY, tnd some of them very delicately. The prices put Dpou them arc very low according to American no tions,—some very pretty fans selling for $2 or $3 each. 1 presume the ivory is cut by machinery, and not, as in Japan, almost entirely by hand. There are some calicoes and print-cloths from three or fourcttles; and from Barcelona there are lilks woven In colors or plaiu. Some of the pieces ire Intended for curtains, and have portraits aud other designs in the centre; one bears the portrait of Tier Sometime Majesty Queen Isabella, but I tlon’t think any one would set her down as a first tlarc beauty. There is a large lot of shirts of all colors and kinds; Uic colors not only collective, but indlvldu li. as the shirts are much unlike the one to tbo ether, and many a shirt hos many a color. Seville sends a lot of glues, but they aro nothing remarkable. The same muy be said of her pot teries; there I# one specimen of Spanish pottery that would bo excellent for America. I wonder lomebody has not introduced It, and I commend it to the notice of any potter who reads these linos. It is A POROUS PITCHER, »r water-cooler; the same thing is used In Mexico and other SpanlsU-Amcrican countries, and you Ond it also lu Ifgypt, where it has been employed for hundreds of years. Tho earthenware Is uuglazcd, tnd sufficiently porous to allow the water to souk through and keep the outside constantly moist. Fill one of these pitchers, and putln a current of air, •ml you will soon have the contents so cool that it resembles ice-water; tho rapid evaporation reduces tho temperature at a surprising rate. 1 have seen water reduced to sixty degrees Fahrenheit where tho the thermometer stood alclghtyilegrcea in the shade, bldk what a blessing Ibis would be on our Western prairies, where lee Is unattainable, and cool wells and springs are not within reach. Any potter with the usual amount of brains ought to be able to make these things, after u Utile practice. In Egypt they mix ashes of some kind of grass with tbe clay to increase tho porosity; probably any kind of grass or straw ashes woulaanswer. TUB SPANISH TILE WORKS. Is very poorly represented. I have seen in Spain smeb better work than they bars here, ana am very sorry they did not give us something good while they were about it. There is a fine case of inlaid work on steel and it is fashioned Into a great many things of daily use. There is a pialter of repansse work, with delicate figures very closely crowded together, bnt all showing excellent taste and delicate manipulation on the part of the artist. There are some fine old shields from Madrid, in a cose at the entrance of the pavilion, some showing repausso work, and others being traced ana sunk. A very interesting exhibit is of the ore from the Almaden Mine, which formerly controlled the quicksilver markets of tho world. The ore Is the red Cinnabar, and closely resembles that which comes from the New Almaden Mine In California; but 1 believe it is found in continuous veins, where, as the California ore Is in chambers, or pockets, sometimes of great extent. Almaden formerly had the monopoly, and could make the price whatever she chose; but the rich find in California brought her to grief by lowering prices to a non-paying figure. Ibcllovo some sort of n plan was arranged some years ago by which the two coucerns agreed to work together, and so there hat been a fair profit on tbo business In these latter times. Last, but not least, are THE SILK VEILS, which are eo indispensable a part of a Indy’s dress Is Spain, and withal so pretty. They aro of many designs and varieties, are of sombre black, and of various degrees of fineness. 1 know of no head dress eo pretty as this fur a lady, and the first day I was la Madrid 1 sat in front ’of a cafe in (he Puerto del Su). and was sever weary of looking at the Spanish beauties and tbelr veils, particularly the beauties, though my admiration was little more for thu former than tho Utter. But these veils cost a great deal of money, os the ladles of oar party ascertained when they went to buy some of them. ‘ * Nothing fit to wear, " they said, “can be had uuderllOO francs, and we saw tome worth 2,000 aud 2.600 frunes." They didn’t buy at those figures, and I don't think the Spanish veil will ever become popular in America, uulcm Us price is reduced. There is a limit to the prices of foreign things, at least lu soma in stances. A MUSICAL BLOW-OUT. The arrangement of the musical programme for tbu Fourth of July has been put in the hands of Gilmore, the musician of Boston Jubilee fame, and famous ta several other ways. He is at work now on the programme, aud proposes to get up a magnificent affair. Theodore Thomas is angry at the selection of Gilmore, and proposes to get up something on the same day that will take away from Gilmore's glory by being severely serious. Gilmore and Thomas are ooth excellent musicians, and the great difference between Ilium is, that the former understands the public taste, and endeavors to meet It, while the latter endeav ors to compel the public toale to come to his stand ard. Thomas wishes to make Ida programme class ical, and there Is no better Interpreter than ho of classical music. Gilmore can interpret and con duct a classical piece as well as Thomas can ; but lie knows that tho public is not up to it, and demands something of the slum-bang aud exciting order. No be makes Ids programmes, accordingly, partly classical and partly popular, and tho result is, that be geta along more easily than does his opponent. You can lead thu public more readily than you can drive them. Gilmoru has discovered tills, while Thomas baa not; anti on this discovery Is based the Success of tho one and of the other. Thomas es tablished bis concerts in an out of thu way place in few York, on the ground that the public would be compelled to come. Tho public didn't Come in sufficient force to make the enterprise a paying one, although the music was of the very finest order, and received tho unbounded pralsu of tiie most severe critics. Thomas’ Garden no on in this way for three or four years; and when Gilmoru took the old Hippodrome, In tho neighborhood of Madison Square, and gave popular concerts, ha “ knocked higher thau a kite" the Central Park Garden concerts, which worn run by Thomas. Ths attendance at tbe Gilmore Garden was such as to bring a largo profit to the manage (beat wbllo tho other concerts had a bard tlmu to P»y running expenses, and only paid them by gut ting into debt. TUB lIUBIO AT TUB OI'BNINO •I’the Centennial was admirably conducted by Mr. Ihoaus, and brought him a great deal of praise. Boon after the opening-day ho began a series of summer-concerts, which wore so signally uiuuc [feasful that they were brought to an and last week, dbey were given at au out-of-the-way place, the Hid Forrest mansion, corner of Broad and Master • heels, sod the Impossibility of drawing a crowd there was shown ths second or third evening. In tha laesnlime Gilmore bad been giving his con • arts In the mala Exhibition Building, and the luccess of these concerts led the Commission to •loss a contract with him for the Fourth-of-July •flflr, ll# will maks it as much like the Boston • whiles as possible.

The Commission will have to put everybody In handcuffs In order to preserve the articles that cm be Injured by manipulation. A suggestion that I made in these letters ten days ago was taken up by the press generally, to the effect that manufacturers and others employing large numbers of men should send DELEGATIONS OF THEIR HOST INTELLIGENT EMI'iXJTES to study the Exhibition. Notice has been received of several such parties; and 1 was informed to day, by the representative of Fairbanks Scale- Works In Vermont, that they would send such a delegation here next week. The men are to leave Ht. Johnshury on Monday next, and spend several days In Machinery-Hull. I hope to hear of similar parties from the West, and, In fact, from all purls of the country. An intelligent mechanic, who is allowed to use his eyes and brains here for a few days In succession, will carry away the germs that will grow, and blossom, and ripen Into good fruit. It will be of more practical good to the country to have a thousand such men come here, than to have ten thousand fashionable Idlers. Let them come, and tbe more the better. And let me suggest to the Commission to reduce the sOmluslon on Satur day afternoons to U"» cents, and thereby Induce the employers around Philadelphia to benefit them selves ami their workmen by giving half-holidays, ■u that the latter may visit the Exposition. _ T. W. K. BURNETT & CO. THEIR “STANDARD PREPARATIONS." Special CorrerponiUnct of The Tribune.

The back of the ease is draped with rich blue snlln, against which the artistically-arranged bottles of the various preparations show to good advantage.

The Witness Mulligan Makes tho Ex-Speaker Much Trouble. [any Disagreeable Facts Proven by Mr. Illnine’s Own Handwriting. Extensive Dealings in Eailroad Bonds that Require Ex planation, Mr. Blaine Obtains Several Important Letters from Witness. And Declines to Return Them or Give Them to the Com mittee, Admission of a Jocular Reference to a Foreign Tour. THE INVESTIGATION HAS A HAD LOOK. Special Dltpalch to V>e Tribune. • Washington, 1). C., June I.— While It can not bo denied that the result of tu-day’a inves tigation of Hlalne’e connection with the Little Rock & Fort Smith Railroad bauds has been such as to leavcan unfavorableimpruaslou,there urc a few facts which, while they form no part of the testimony, should bo fully taken into consideration in order to arrive at a just esti mate of the case as it now stands. It lias been remarked that during the examination to-day Mulligan evinced a strong feeling of en mity and spite towards Blaine throughout the whole of Ids testimony. It is asserted that Mulligan come here feeling very unfriendly towards the cx-Spcakcr and disposed to do him anything but Justice, and it is even hinted that there lias been a misunderstanding be tween them, and that Mulligan Is now SEEKING REVENGE. Mulligan says that Elisha Atkins told him that Blaine bad disposed of seventy-five of bis Arkansas bonds to Tom Scott on verv favorable terms, but Mr. Atkins, whose word will not be doubted anywhere, Is understood to be anxious to have au opportunity to goupou the stand and to deny ttmt he ever made such a statement in Mulligan’s presence, and that he had any knowledge of any such sale. Mulli gan, it will not be forgotten, has no information on the subject himself, and his testimony on this point is therefore simply hearsay. The in vestigation thus far lias brought to light TWO SETS OP TRANSACTION'S. The first includes those which took place be tween Joslah Caldwell, of Boston, and Tom Scott. Both of these gentlemen, as is well known, were interested in the Southern Security Company, one object of which wan to secure a line of railroad from the Atlantic to tho Pacific Ocean. Thu several links In this road were the Memphis it Charleston, the Memphis, Little Rock <fc Fort Smith, and the Atlantic & Pacific Railroad. In order to carry out their plan, Scott as sisted Caldwell, who was building tbe Little Rock tte Fort Smith Railroad, and purchased of him a number of its bonds. he himself testified, he sold a por tion oi those bonds to the Union Pacific Railroad Company for $04,000, that Company taking this method to REPAY HIM FOR 1118 VALUABLE SERVICES while acting as President. Thosccondsetof transactions took place between Joslah Caldwell, Warren Fisher of Boston, and Blaine. Fisher and Blaine had for many years been on the most intimate terms, the latter’s busi ness transactions with the former having begun when tic wasonly22 yeors of age. Fisher undertook the Rale of some of the Llttlu Hock & Fort Hmith bunds, and was offering to pay a generous commis sion to any one who would assist that company In raising money by disposing of its securities. Blaine undertook to sell a number of its brut-mortgage bonds, and did succeed In placing some of them among his friends and acquaintances in Maine. Fur those services JIB KKOEIVBD 80MB OP TUB BONDS of the Company. Subsequently, some of those who had purchased bonds from Dlninu became dis satisfied with their investments, and asked him to take them back. Although nut obliged to do so, he did accede to this request, and it is understood that Caldwell took the whole or part of them off his bands. Now, in order to break down Blaine's statement In his own defense, it must be shown that the bonds which Caldwell sold to Scott were the same bonds which tho former received from Blaine. This is THE MISSING LINK in the care against Blaine, and without it the pros ecution must apparently fail. That link Blaine's friends say it will be Impossible to supply. On the other hand, they confidently expect to prove that it does not and never did exist. They in tend to show this by comparing, tho numbers of the bonds uuw in possession of the Un ion Pacific Company with the numbers of those which Blaine returned to Caldwell, and hr proving that they are not at oil identical. Blaine's ene mies will, of course, make the most of his inter view with Mulligan yesterday afternoon, the dis covery that Mulligan hud iu bis possession some of Blaine's private letters to Warren Fisher, the man ner in which thu ex-Spcakcr obtained them, and his refusal to return them to Mulligan or to pro duce them before tho Committee. Public attention having beun called to the ex istence of this correspondence, und'Blaine having shown so great anxiety to get and retain control of it. nothing but the fullest and most complete ex planation of the character of the letters, or their itvtuAi production, will remove all ground for a suspicion that they do nut contain something which would not hear tbo light. Such an explana tion Blaino’a friends assert will bo made to morrow. PHNSATIONAL. The scenes In tbo Judiciary Committee room, to-day when thu testimony of Mulligan was taken were highly sensational. Thu story was told with a readiness which seemed almost eager, ami Mulligan’s manner re minded the spectators of thu fluency of the witness Harney. There was about Mulligan's face a vindictive satisfaction which seemed to Indicate exultation over a premeditated deed. Some of the spectators In tho room who claimed to know Multi gun personally insisted timt bo woo such a bitter fanatic in his religion Uml bo would consider that he had done (iod a service to break down Mr. Blaine. Mulligan WAT HAVE TOLU THE TIIDTH in every particular, and In sumo of the Important piirtlculani lie was continued by Blaine's own (statement: but Mulligan's manner could scarcely prejudice an hnimrtlal observer in Ida favor. Blaine woa prompt to reply to Mulligan's allega tions, but the friends of both admit that the con troversy Is not yet settled, Blaine's opponent* are confident that the doings of this day have done much to injure Ids prospects at Cincinnati, while Mr. Blaine s friends insist that Uic Mulligan scan dal will only result, as many others have done, to making Blaine wore popular with the people. TUB TESTIMONY. To tfn H 'etltrn Auociattd Prnt. Washington, I>, c., June I.—The Judiciary Committee met again this morning, and continued the examination of James Mulligan. The witness eald he wanted to make a statement before continu ing his examination. He said when he arrived iiere a note came down from Illalne, requesting witness and Fisher to call at his bouse, witness declined to go, but Flshor went. After witness testified yesterday, Dlulne called upon wlturse, and asked him about some letters which were In his possession. He wanted witness to give them up, but witness declined to do so. Witness said that Blaine almost gut down on bis knees and pleaded fur tho letters, saying they would ruin him for life, and, when witness further declined. Blaine asked him to think of his wife and six children. Hu be sought witness. and almost contemplated suicide. Witness thou allowed Blaine to take them, under pledge that he would return them. Hu looked them over and did return them. This was in tire presence of Fisher and Atkins. Witness then re tired to his room, and Blalnu followed him around and wanted to look at the letters again. Witness allowed Blaluo to take them, and then be refused to return thefn. and still retains them. No one was present at this time but Blalnu and witness. There were about eighteen letters. AIK. KLAIKU BAIILS9. While this statement was being made, Blaine eat St the table, opposite witness, and exhibited con siderable mirth at the statement, laughing outright at the remark about suicide. When the witness closed, Blaine rose at once and asked to bo swum, and be allowed to make a counter statement. The Chairman objected to it at that time, but as sured Bluluu he should have an opportunity. Witness was asked if he know the contents of the letters, and what Ihelr contents weru, as far as they related to Union Pacific bonds. Mr. Blaine objected to the witness giving the contents of the letters until be had mads a counter slatemcut. , . By the Chairman: Q. —1 want you to state whether in those letters which hear upon your testimony of yesterday there la anything concerning lbs Little Bock Si Furl tiullh lUUroad bondi, which you un- drrstood went Into the hands of the Pacific Railroad through Thomas A. Hcolt. A.-In my testimony yesterday ! was asked If I had nny otbf-r te-Uinony than what Atkins hid said shout Ih'wc bonds, and I said yew: that Dialtir had acknowledged It hlmsHf In a letter. Fisher h.icl been writing to Bin! ne for some time ahont a settlement. and Illnine always urged about mine hack bonds that were due blm as commissions on rules of bonds, and saying that he was veryshortof money, and had lost considerable by this transaction, and Hint he would have to take up these bonds from parties who had them, or that he had taken them up. Mr. Fisher wrote him bark that he (Blaine) 11/I) NOT LOST ANT MONET, because be (Fisher) knew where ho had sold the bonds and got this largo amount of money for them. <(.— Whnt. large amount? A.—These $04,000. Illnlnc wrote back to Fisher—l may not give hls exact words, but this is the purport of them—that Die money that he had obtained he did not have in his po»«esslon forty-eight hours; that hr had not mnde It for himself, but that he had turned It over to those Innocent parlies, alluding to the Maine parlies. o. —What reason did Illnine give yon for de siring to suppress those letters? A.—That they would ruin him forever. Mu contemplated suicide, and appealed to mo In every way* he could, mu! he began Mien to talk politics, and asked mu about the nomination, and about hls friends. ■ I talked freely to him. and gave my opinion. Mu asked me If I liked my present position, and I told him no, I didn’t care about it. Me asked me how I should like a politi cal olllco. and I told him I didn't care about one. Me asked me if I would not like a Consulship. liy Mr. Frye: 4.—-Was any one present ul that time? A.—No, air. That I# upon «ny own veracity, r. Uluine is here and listening to what I ray.

At the conclusion of Mulligan's examination Mr. Blaine made the following statement under oath: This wttncsn opened his statement this morning by detailing some facts in reuard U> the possesion liy him of certain letters which came into my pos session. To begin where bo did, 1 received, through a third parly, a telegram on Monday stat ing that Fisher and Mulligan were on their way os witnesses, the latter unfriendly. Just at that time my mind was considerably filled with the story about tbo North ern Pacific matter which had come out, through the letter of Aqnliu Adams, who was for* merly connected with Fisher in business, and when I ascertained on wbnt train Fisher was com* ing I sent a servant with u note to bis hotel, saying that 1 would like to have HIM AND MULMUAN CAU. AT MT HOCSD on their leisure in relation U) the Northern Hucltlc mutter and the Adums letter. Huber culled, Mul ligan nut wanting to call. 1 called at the Higgs liiiuru, mul found Mulligan Hitting In a barber’a choir. I shook hands with him. We are nut new acquaintance*. I have known him twenty-live years, uihl during the period be was associated with uiy wile’s brother In business in lioHton. and Mulligan wan thecuntldential clerk for many yean of another brother of my wife's lu business, so that 1 knew (ho parlies intimately. Fisher Intimated that Mulllgun had these letters, and, without distinctly saying so, Ih» gave me to understand that he was not In the least reluctant to get them all out. whether they )>ore upon the matter under Investigation or not. 1 dldnltconveise wlUiMullignnatull until yesterday, when 1 discov ered, 1 thought, a very great readiness ou hU purl to travel out ol the record, and tell a fgood many things relating to my private business which did not belong ut all to the subject of Investigation, and seeing that 1 didn’t want to go Into those mutters until I could have u little conversation with him on the subject, 1 thought it was highly Improper and unjust that he should do so. because It broadened the Held of ex amination and prevented my having a report or verdict upon the case. The Committee was adjourned by Judco Law rence's request, after 1 hud spoken with him. Af ter adjournment 1 culled on three gentlemen—At kins, Fisher, and Mulligan, at the Higgs House,and . In (he parlor Atkins Inul some conversation with Mulligan ftboullhesc letters,and asked him to shyw them to me. lie did show them with some apparent reluctance. 1 said to him, “Why, you are not afraid of my keeping them, are you)’’ and he said “ No,” and handed them to me. 1 looked them all over, and he discovered that there was ONI.Y ONE I.BTTEH in the list that at all bore upon the question before the Committee, and even Inal only by a forced construction, and uot lu reality. I banded them hack to him. Thu conversation then became somewhat general before the four gentlemen, Including myself, lu the room. After a little while Mulligan went up-stairs into Fisher’s room, right overhead. 1 was talking with Atkins and Fisher for a few minutes, and then I started up to Fisher’s room, and knocked at the dour, and was admitted, and there 1 talked with Mulligan for some lime. 1 may have been there 1 think the better part of an hour, hut the form that he gives of thu interview, about my offering him a Consulship, and about my helug ruined, and all that sort of thing, was mere fancy. Nothing of the kind occurred. 1 talked as calmly as 1 am talking Hits morning. Very suuu I said to him 1 would like to see one letter. Among those 1 wanted lu see was TUB LBTTBIt ON WHICH UB UA3BD UI9 TEST! He handed me the package. 1 looked them all over, and 1 said to him, asl said afterwards m the presence of Ur. Fisher and Mr. Atkins, “Now you keep that letter which you think hears on this matter. (That ts the letter that he bos tes tified to this morning.) 1 am perfectly willing you should keep that, hut here Is a mass of my private correspondence, covering many years, aud detailing matters that have nothing to do with the subject of Investigation, which it would probably be embarrassing to mu to have published, us auy muu’s private correspondence would be, and 1 don't want these letters published. You ought lu give me lh«M letters. You have no right to them. There are only two persons lu thu world that have a right to them. Ouu Is the writer, aud the other the person to whom they were written. Now, if you will give these letters to Fisher I will he abundantly aatlsflad* They will then be La their rightful ownership. They will he In safe hinds," Fisher hud before. hlm**lf. In wy presence, re- 3 nested that they should be given to him In the m conversation In a lower room. Mulligan re fused. He said he didn't know what might trans pire In hls examination 10-dav, and he salt!, with a good many by Mod#, that he was going to hold those letters for his protection, hls vindication. I said, “When yon get through the examination will you give them to me then?" lie said, “No. If anybody Impugns my motive (he pronounced It In that way),or In any way questions my veracity In the papers. I shall publish these Inters.” I said. “You do not think I would attack yon In the papers? There Is nothing to make me attack you In the papers.” Me-aid. “Well. If anybody did, he should publish th-ru.” I had been running over the letters for s-une time. The first lime, when he hud handed thorn to ms, he had shown reluctance, and. ns I have stated, I remarked, “Von ure not afraid of my keeping them?” and he answered. “Oh. no." anil handed them to me without any assurance nt all, or without anything being said about It, and I hud no idea of doing anything else than handing them buck until he announced hls purpose and de termination that, no mutter who should question hls testimony, or impeach or impugn hls veracity, he would publish the letters. I said, “There are private hitlers. These are letters that relate to matters that have no more connection or relationship with the examination now going on before the Judiciary Committee than the man In the moon, and it would be grossly unfair that you should treat my private correspondence In that way.” I then said to him: “Will you ring the bell for a servant, and tell him to send Fisher up from the lower loom?” Me did so. and very soon Fisher t ame tip. and we had a little conversation, in w hlch I repeat ed before Fisher what Mulligan had said, his decla ration. or rather bis menace. I said: “Thl* i«vrry grossly unfair, Mr. Fisher.” I then said that I would be glad If Fisher would take charge of the letters: that they were rightfully In hls possession or rightfully In mine, hut not nny third person's. Mulligan repeated again. In Fisher's presence, his declaration that ho would feel himself at liberty TO PUHLIMI THESE LETTER!) at any time he saw tit. if anybody should provoke him into wrath by any comment on hls testimony, and. owing to the somewhat enlarged facilities in the American press for making criticisms upon everybody, I found that my private correspondence hung fay the thread of bis taking Odense at any of the thou sand and one paragraphs that might be set afloat in the papers, and I said to him, “ Under these cir cumstances 1 will not give those lellera up, ” and. In order that he might nut be mistaken us to the ground of my action. 1 called Atkina from the low er room, (or I wanted to tell him the ground on which I stood. 1 said, “1 will not return those letters, because you threaten to make a use of them which Is Illegitimate, which is unfair, which U entirely unjust, and I have no idea that any man shall take my private correspondence and hold It as a menace over my head, to be used at his beck or option for his own purpose or under somebody's direction.” We went down stairs,and he repeated and reaffirmed Ins statement with very great emphasis, and I said. “Very good; I will retain the letters.” When I went home I sent for two friends, one a member of the Mouse of Representatives, and the other a lawyer In this city, and 1 laid every one of those letters before them. These letters, which “ would disgrace me for life and send my children sorrowing to the grove. ” and all that—l #nt down and read every one of them just in tbeurdcr in which they wero marked and numbered by Mulligan himself, am) then said to these gentlemen, after consultation. 1 am going to submit these to two of the wisest and best coun sel that I can find In the City of Washington to morrow (that Is to-day), and 1 will tie guided en tirely by them In action. I shall take them before the Judiciary Committee If they say any of those letters I should be In duty bound to deliver them. If they Intimate to me that there Is anything in the lettere which bears even remotely, or otherwise, upon the subject of these Interview#, those letter? shall be delivered, but I shall wait and be guided by their opinion as to what I ought to do fu (be premises. A# to the bulk of those letters you might as well send to my bouse uud take any pack age from my files of correspondence for the last five years and put it la here ha evidence In this Investigation. Many of them relate to business transactions which are passed and settled up, and which i dok’t wakt uevivcd; not that there is anything in them which is in any degree embarrassing. I have read them over freely to those two friends, and, us I ray, 1 will read them over freely to those tw o counsel. There is nothing in those letters that 1 shall have occasion to blush over. The result is that I postponed my action until I could have this conference lu regard to It. There was another reason which made it pecu liarly exasperating to me—tbatis, that in the month of beptember, 1K72, Fi«her and I. after very long end. in the main, very pleasant business rela tions, extending back to a period when I w as a very young man, luui a final u tllemcnt, In which we exchanged receipts In full. 1 think the predse dale wits September 21.1872. It was said that nil the letters on either side, and all the papers and scraps of papers should be given up and 1 supposed thco were given up. 'lnese letters bad been written carelessly, as business letters often are. I got a great many letters from him, and i gave np all that I bad. Mulligan claims that FISfIKK GAVE THESE LBTTCItft TO HIM? thnt lie has a right to them, uml that be ban the right to dispose of that correspondence, which U ill of It private. When I said to him that It was all a private correspondence, be said, “Why, a public man has no private correspondence; can have no private correspondence." lie says: “The letter of a public nuui Is public." That was the f:round he took la conversation, and especially if a etter was not marked “private.’ 1 Some of these letters, however, are marked “private," some ore marked “personal. " and some “confidential." I insisted that It was the grossest possible outrage. T said. “You take those letters before the Committee. Without the Committee designing any wrong, they go out to the world, and then when It Is seen that they bare no possible relevancy, all that there Is objec tionable in publication has been achieved and ac complished, and it will he 100 lute for me to Inter pose any objections then. In other words, the very test of their admissibility involves thnt which I myself protest against.—the use of entirely pri vate letters which have no relevancy whatever to the case in band. t I took that ground, and on that ground I stand now. 1 Justify myself for not returning the let ters. It was be that was in unlawful possession of these letters, lie bad no right to those letters. 1 taketlipground luosldfsilnctly that thercare huttwo men that can possess a right!ul interest in a private correspondence,—the w riter and the person written to,—and ou that right I stand now. 1 shall produce the letter with great freedom on which ilulll gau bu luised bis testimony that 1 acknowledged HAVING JIECEIVBD THE JIH.OOO, and I shall show you it bus uo relation to that sub ject. liy Ur. Frye: Q.—Do not some of these letters relate to mutters transpiring long before you be came a member of Congress* A. —Yes, long be fore I became a member of Congress for the first time. The Chairman—An I understand you, ns I espe cially understood from Mulligan, you had posses sion of the letters on two occasions T lUalne—Yes. The Chairman—Ou the first occasion you promis ed to return them* iilnluu—lt did nut assume so formal a shape as a promise. 1 thought lie exhibited a little hesitancy in bunding the letters to me, and I said to him; “ You don’t think I would keep them, do you* ' U was rather aa inlerjcclional remark. Ido not know whether Fisher or Atkins were in the room w hen I tint got them, but both of them came In while 1 was reading and looking over the Idlers. 1 handed them back to Mulligan. The Chairman—Why did you have a second Inter view at Mulligan’s in the absence of those tw o gen tlemen? iilaTue—lt was Mulligan who had left the room, noth 1 wanted to satisfy myself with re* SJR'CI tO A SPECIFIC LETTER. Fifteen letters make rather a voluminous corre siHimlcnco to remember all about. I went and told him 1 should like to see a specltlc letter, and be bundedtuc the package. The Chairman—When you got the letters the sec ond time it was your iuteuuuu to return them to Mulligan? Hlaine—Yes. The Chairman—You changed your Intention, upon his declaration that If his veracity were as sailed he would publish the letters? Hlaine—Yes; that he should attack me If any body else attacked him. PASS THEM OVER. The Chairman—l md; at your hands the produc tion of three letters for the perusal of the Cum mltlee and not fur publication, that the Committee may see for themselves whether they hear upon the question. Blaine—ln private? , ~ The l'tmlrniaii-No. air, with no privacy, but 1 certainly will not make them public unless they hear on the question. , Ur. Blaise—l will lake occasion to oouault my counsel iu regard to it. . The Chairman—You decline, then, to produce themt Ululne—For the present I decline. The Chairman then asked lllalne to produce the memorandum made hy Mulligan coutalug a turn* nuiry of the letters. lllatne replied that if Mulligan bud no right to the letters he hud uo riche to the memorandum. If he had no right to a private letter he hid uo right to a copy of It. M.. Lawrence—You have laid that certain elate* mi nts of Mulligan were fancy. Mr. Blaine—l will explain that. The conversa tion was a lone one. 1 have known Mulligan fora long lime, ami we have hud a good deal of conver eulion at various times. On this occasion we got to talking about public mutters, and he spoke of the miseries of public life, and said ho did not see how anybody could be induced to enter IU lie •poke ul the same time about going abroad to visit his friends, i said, “1 wonder you have nut gut tired of Hie bum-drum of thu counting-room," and 1 jokingly remarked whether he would nut hare liked to UO ABBOAD IN DONE OmCIAL CAPACITY. As Mulllgau has presented it here it would seem that 1 had asked him to accept a Consulship. Ihere was nothing of that whatever. . . Jlr. Lawreuco-Wu anything said about suicide? Ir. Ulalue—Not a word in the world. . Mulligan asked Blaine whether, on his oath, he would say be had not used the word suicide. Mr. Blaine—l do, must emphatically. NOIITHISUN PACIFIC.

I, Parker, been accompanied with the obligation to lake a large amount of the bonds at PO, and hold them not less than three years.” It will be observed there are no such conditions attached to Blaine's offer to Fisher. Tills I- conclusive as to one thing, viz., that the interest he was offering was part of the one-twenty-fourth Interests which the Cookes did not control. Now, how as to this Lake Superior & Puget Sound Land Company? It was an organization with the same stockholders ami the same olllcers ns the Northern Pacific Railroad Company, and with about the same capital. Thu object of it was to take not only all the land granted the Railroad Company, but Co gobble up also all the choice lands not granted. The Railroad Company was to have every odd-numbered section of land along the line of the road for 40 miles wide, -0 miles on each side of tbe truck, and, If any of i these sections had been pre-empted, they were to 1 be made good to the Railroad Company out of any i of the public Lands In any of the Stated and Terri tories through which the road passed. The Land 1 Company had a contract with the Railroad Company U> lake all of the lauds granted to it at a certain price If it wanted them, and in addition to tuts it i located all the town eltes along the tine of the road ami gobbled up nil the good land in the neighbor hood of these town sites. To accomplish this It had a small army of pre-emptors to whom it paid a regular salary and furnished outfit* and subsist ence. Tills business of course required some cup tal. and hence the stockholders of the Fund Com pany had to pay assessments. The manner In ulilch these hired pre-emptors operated was shown in legal contests oetween the Lund Company ami the settlers In regard to the town rite of liieuiarck. Cw t t*p<*n>Uure Srr Y-ik Time*. Wamumitos, May gti.— It I* said that Samuel Wllkesuu. the secretary of the Northern I’acitlc Railroad Company, has loluntcered a statement In behalf of Mr. Ulalne, to the etlect that he has nut. and never did lime, any interest in the original proprietorship of that enterprise, or In lls4>oiiui) or stock. This statement is now before tbc Investi gating Committee, or soon will be. Mr. Elaine. In his letter to Waireu Fisher, Jr., seems to Imre fallen Intou return liable error when he conveyed the idea that the Northern Pacific Railroad Com pany would not mortgage ltd lands, but would create a stock company for their ownership, and would divide the Comjiuny’s land grant among the holders of the franchise. When his letter was written, every acre that the Company owned, or could prospectively acquire under Us charter, was mortgaged to the huldereof its bunds. To compre hend the ramie which any inquiry upon this subject may lake, uud to correct some misapprehensions which the attack upon Mr. lllntnc Las r«*iv~.t, tain leading facts may at this moment be usefully put ujkui record. The Northern Pacific Itaitroad was originally chartered by Congress in July, ISOI. From that time until Jummry. IKIT. tho corporation strug gled for an existence. Its proprietors bad not means to curry it on. They were obliged to inter est capitalists uud Indueutlal men In the enterprise, and finally they sold it to Our. J. Oregorr Muith and three four associates hi the New England States,—W. 11. Ogden, J. Edgar Thomson, Oeurge W. fass. the New York «s Erie Railroad company, the Chicago & Northwestern Railroad Comnany, Edward Reilly, uud the associated express compa nies represented by Fargo, Cheuey. and the Har tleys. These parties divided the property, what ever it was. Into twelve shares. Jay Cooke ac quired his Interest In May, IHbP. when the shares were increased eighteen, he taking six. In Janu ary. l«70. llx more shares were added, and Juy Cooke's Inti rest was Increased to twelve shares. The legislation under which the Company actually went to work was obtained during the ses- , slon of IKTU. It authorized the Company to mortgage the road, to issue Ikuiils, and also to con-tract a branch roud. To obtain cai-h for beginning the construction of the road Jay Cooke, as thu financial agent, projected "u pool” for Sd. tHK). 000, ami to stimulate subscriptions for bonds to this amount he used a large portion of ids own stock by wav of bonu- to the subscribers. In this way lie iloated Sd,IH)U.MUO of bonds at par. The building of thu rood then began. The story that u construction company was formed for this purpose bus no foundation in truth. The road, so far us It went, was budl by contract, and the cbnlractors were paid In cash. Equally erroneous is the statement that a ring, known as the Lake Superior * Puget Bound Land Com puny, was formed Inside Hie Northern Paciilc Com pany, and acquired the control of its hinds. An organization thus called was formed, with u paid up coihb capital of $1,000,000. Its purpose was to deal In towu-sltes uml farm-lands, and lu llmlwr-limds and coal properties on thu Padtic coast. Tins laud company ac ciuired altogether f.T.tHHi acres, only live of which U bought from the Northern Puclflc. The od.liOfi acres were Government lauds, bought from thu Govcrnnunt In the ordinary manner. What lands individual members of thu Company pur chased from the Northern Paciilc is nut known; thu only obtainable information upon this point being that nothing was purchased except In the open market, or without belug paid fur at fixed rales lb cash or bunds. Some three years ago, when suindal first cropped out upon this subject, tin-Directors of tin* Northern Pacific took measures to prevent thu acquisition of town sites by the Duke Superior X Puget Sound Company, and negotiations were entered Into which resulted in the extinction of the latter organization and tin acquisition of its property by and for the Northern Pacific. Tills properly formed part of Hie assets of the roud, and with its franchises, its equipment, and its lands, passed into the hands of (he bond holders at the foreclosure sale, and Ihencu Into thu iHJsscsslon of thu reorganized Company which is now in operation. .... This recital of facts may give some clew to stock which muy have been available for speculative purposes at any Lima since January, lh7o. ine books of the Company, it is understood, show only the holders of the preferred stock, into which ail but a fractional amount of the bunds have been converted. Thu stock referred to by Mr. lilaiuu in his letter to Fisher was thu original common stock, which carried nunc of thu privileges lie claimed for it. The twelve original proprietary Interest* which hnvo been designated ownedone-bulf of this stock, and what they havu done with it. how mucboflt they hold, and how much they have sold—only they cau lull. PEORIA'S TELEGRAPHY. Special DUiHitch to The Tribune. pfonta, 111., Juno 1. —U»t night, in response to a call signed principally by members of the Hoard of Trade, a number of business men assem bled in the Chamber of Commerce for the purpose of taking some action looking to obtaining lower telegraph rates from this point. It is claimed that IVoria Is unjustly discriminated against by the Western Union, which Is (he only Hue here. After dubuting the matter for some lime, it was finally decided (o make an appeal to the Western Union Company for lower rales, and, In case they refused to cut down the tariff, a committee was empowered to enter Into negotiations with the managers of the Atlantic A I’sclllc Company, and see what arrange ments can be made with them to bring tbeir line Into the city. The nearest point now Is Bureau J unction. 40 miles north of here. A statement was made that. In case of necessity, there wers men who would shoulder the expense of putting up a line between Bureau and I'corla. TURPENTINE. Wiluikoton, dune 1.-"Spirit* of turpentine steady at S 7 Vic.

Coalrary to general expectation tlie anticipated furthir rcdtctlon in passenger rtea to the East was not mad« yesterday, bnl thertla no doubt that it will be male within a day or t*o.

Some of tl* other roads rere rolling around the rules yestvday by selling teconucUss ticket# for first-class fries. These tickets are now the same to New York as the reduced l«l-ci 98 tickets, but they are mlimltcd, which U quit* advantage to parties Hio like to atop a*er at vari ous points. The (Jencnl Ticket and Passenger Agents of the roads leadhg from thla city to tho East held a meeting yesterday afternoon (or the purpose of coning to eono agree* ment a- regards the sale of tickets, but nothing could he accomplished. The result of the meellug has been telegraphed to the managers of the roads attho East, and tbeU advice asked fur. An order for another Urge ro* duction is looked for. The present war Is likely to extend to Western oads also. Thu Toledo. Wabuh & Western, and Indianapolis, Illooiningtou & Western Railroads have made a largo reduction frem all tho Western points they reach. Thu Western lines leading out of Chicago have already given orders to follow thu reduction from the competing points. They will, however, have to reduce from all points, if they mean to keep their business, as tbc cross lines are getting waked up; and will try to catch all the Western traffic they can. The Pennsylvania Railroad has reduced the ratea from New York west to Chicago to sls, and all the other roads have followed salt. THE MIDLAND. Special DUpatch to The Tribune. Decatvk, HI., June I.—Surprising develop* mcnte muy be expected soon concerning the atatua of the Illinois Midland Railroad.

These creditors got Mr. Powell, of Paris, appointed Receiver of the Paria & Decatur Road, one pari of the Midland, and commence a suit by tin* people of Illinois vs. the Illlnola Midland Company by quo warranto, charging the defendant with usurping the franchises of the Paris 02 Decatur Railroad Company, and this comes up tc be heard unmorrow. Pending this suit, a few days ago, Receiver Dole, of the Midland, appointed Receiver Powell of the Paris «fc Decatur Hoad as his (ienerul Superintendent, dismissing the old one. This was u bombshell In the camp of the plaintiffs, and equally so In that ol some of (he magnates of the Midland Company.
