THE C ASE OF f. H. MARSHAL LAM05. The i'nlted States Marshal for the District of Colombia, Col. Ward H. l,aluon, has been as wuea upon me noor or tne senate with caarges t ending and iuterded to injure birr, as an officer, and bring him into disrepute among hi* fellowcitizen*. For such wrongs no redress or remedy can be obtained by tny legal process. He stands In 'he attitude of a man struck at without being allowed an opportunity to repel the blows. He is e.(titled to be heard; and it is our object to do ?imple jistice to a popular and efficient public otfi^er by the presentation of f.icti in our possession which entirely vindicate him from all the preferred, and exhibit the malignity of tUCl CUlUUil, Thtse charges wer? made by Senators Grimes, of !owj, iinle, of New Hampshire, and Wilaoo, of Massachusetts. With the motives of these > naMri in in;-king this attack we have now notblng to do The first speech of Mr Ha!e in refw rrence to Col. Limon indicated that the purpose wai to strike at Homebody?anybody connected with the adaaiaiatntion who it not -too high or too low," and the Maribal of the District was selected is an initial point, with the hope of eventually bitting a lit'ie higher and a little lower to reach *otne others '' The charges against Col. Lamon can be shown by indisputable facts to be not oniy unjust and unbailed f->r, but absolutely without foundation. Thev were doubtless preferred by Senators on Information thev believed to be correct, but the j;eiji'-?ncn who pronounced them in the Senate chamber are censurable at least for making an assault upon a Federal rfficer without notice of the barge* or atfotdlug him aa opportunity to repel them, and to (how conclusively that they were without a shadow of foundation, and pure fabri tuuu? ui pci?uuai enmity a nil u:a* lvnant envy of bis oi&cial position at the Federal k tap.id. This assault was begun oa tbe 10th day of Jannary last, by tbe Senator from Iowa, with tbe declaration that a white man bad been committed to the jaii and was unable to ascytain the reason of bis incarceration, and that a session of the Urand J ;ry had intervened but tbe man was still In jail. The Senator added "upon going to the record 1 1 found that an order had been entered in that case, dated oa the 6:h of D^pember. directing that the prisoner should be discharged; yet the order had not be?n carried into execution He should have been sent to the: alms house, which we have providrd,"' Ac. The 41 white mm'' here alluded to }? Robert F. Bealc, whose fol'owiiig tifidavlt will fully eip aia the reason why he remained in ths prison : District of Columbia, 1 Vmhiiigion County, to irit :?I. Robert Beale, a native of Essex county, in the State of Virginia, but for several years 1'ist residing in the Cltv of Washington, do. on mv oath sav, that lome time in July iaat, I wa? committed to the jail In thla county under a fa!s? . harge of larceny, and being unable to p roc n re bail, wa? detain-d until tne Grand Jury met In December lait. I was than Informed tnere was no charge against me, and diacharged from jail bat being then aick, Laving no home or frieuds, or any one to whom 1 could go, and on whom I had any claim, the Marshal permitted me to remain In jail, and I have ever since remained here dependent entirely oa his bounty, but at libsrty to go when and where I please. 1 am still unfit t> go out, aid have no clothing except what has v b^ea furnished bv Mr. Lamon. the Marshal, and other charitable persons. R. F. Bsalk. ^ jbacribed and sworn to by aaid Robert F. Beale. !n the jail of Washington County, D. C., this 10th, February, 1S?2 W*. R. Woodwaiid, Justice of the Peace. Ttis is all sufficient, but we would ask the Senator, \Vh?re is the almshouse 44 ire have provided !" Is there any such Institution in this DU* t.-fct* We are ignorant of its locality. Senator, wu?re Is it * Among other charges against the Marshal, the Senator said : "Mr. Lamon has paid no attention to it (the jiil) until cf late, and now only to make an order prohibiting th? admission of all persons, tic. In all candor, we aak the Senator if the Marshal wns not right In making this order ? The ?afe*y of the prisoners and the public good required it. In the present insecure condition o the jsil, no precaution should be omitted to prevent escapes, and to exclude i.nproper intercourse with prisoners charged with treason, mur ? d' r. and otb?>? crime*. it cannot be assumed that the guard* of the j*il should know every Senator and Member of Congress. At such a time as thia the keepers of the public prison in which are prisoners charged with the highest crimes,should look well to the i^curitr of these criminals. Besides, the military authorities have given orders to the Marshal to allow no one to converse with military prisoners, without a special permit from the Secretary of h War, Secretary of State, the Commanding General, or the Provo*t Marshal, Whea it la remembered that previous to the adoption of the measres of the .Marshal complained of by the Senator, files, saws, knives, chisels and other Implements to aid in escaping from thw jail, bad been fouod in the cella and In the possession of prisoners tte teceasity will be recognised for the prison guards to be furnished with some means of ident.fvi.ijf th penoM wt0 ?"gbt to be admitted to '.the prisoners, and no more appropriate or effective regulation for this purpose could have Kaan Kv t Kp Mftrihlll Witk^ ll ronillrlnn ?rcti u vj ?mv * ? ? ?> iv?|'?:i iu^ every one. without distinction of person*. to procure a pTmit from himself. This regulation Ira regard to the admission of SenMors and members of Congress wa? made for the purpose ?f facilitating their accesa to the public prison, (not to ob-?truot It,) and to enable the guard to recognize '.lie official standing of such visitors It ia Indeed questionable whether int .H4I1US1 waa uui iu nivi in uigno^ IUJS fzception la larvor of {Senator* and Representatives. I ndsr existing circumstances be should require all peraoa whatsoever to procure a permit from himself While the country Is involved in civil war, and the military prisons are in his charge, it may well be doubted if he has any right to give even members of Congress indiscriminately ac' ess to the prison. Ia bis desire to accommodate these public offl-r?f he has assumed a Dower and sranteri nH*<. lege* for which he la liable to censure by the military authorities, and by the public whose interests he Is delegated to protect. Under the existiag state of affairs in this District, having been ?rdered by the military authorities not to permit any one whatever to converse with military prisoners committed to his keeping, the admission of even Senators or Representatives in Congress vanJ.vs htm llaku Ia trial in<l nnnlaKm?n? k? V >M*lltVU * WJ VliV military powers Net long since Charles ismes Faulkner was * mong the prisoners ia this Jail. The Marshal would have been Jnexcusab'e, and even liable to be shot, for allowing even members of Congress to have free acceas and conversation with such a pr scner. Vet thfc Marshal la violently assailed dint Lis removal frotn oAce urged, simply because he require* a certiBcate from some authentic source to enable 'he prison guards to Identify in th? nr'anri n/4 i. ...... ?? r "?* ?v g UB|aatee A* propriety of their admission to free and l ud s:riaiinste intercourse with It* inmaUs Such charge* are frivolous, u*d Col. Lamon tired* no defence from tl^ia, we take it, ia tbe estimation of persons of co imon sense and calm minds. Unlortunatsly for Colonel Lamon, he has g; vet employment to one or two men, whose effort* bave be?o constantly and unscrupulously directed towards ths removal of the Deputy Marshal?Geo X*. PbUllpe?aniverstlly acknowledged lobe one of the bwto Beers of his class In the failed States, s td t gsnUemau who, from long, fclthfsl and efficient service, has won the confidence, not only of the bench and bar of the Supreme Court of the United State* and all the District courts, but oi the entire business community. Coming a stranger Into the cilice of Marshal, Colonel L&mon was eminently rigkt In selecting as hla deputy and confidential friend, for whose acts and emoluments he alone is responsible, one who had proved himself in every way worthy of tbe trust. Mr rnmips, it teems, bad earned tbe enmity of an Individual Ammon Duvall, a subordinate at tbe Jail, who abused the kindness of the Marahal In Riving him employment, and with poorly simulated philanthropy and devotion to Republican party principles, aaaaila Mr. Phillips through the Marshal himaclf. The aHimus of this man's letter is patent upon its facc. The source of the letter is too contemptible to be mode the basis of a grave assault upon a public officer on the floor of the United States Senate. This Mr. Duvall was appointed by Col. Lamon uiiq ui iuc ^iivuu guaiva, upva hid icpir^uiauuu thai be ?u m consistent snd meritorious member of the Republican party. He was soon afterwards removed on account of his relentless villiflcatlon of Deputy Marshal Phillip* Subsequently, upon his voluntary premise to behave blmself more becomingly, and on account of the Alleged suffering ' condition of his family, he was reinstated He was again displaced on account of the conviction cj I Unaukal V> t Ka Vttti) Koah i>niTBiro/f in (K a ... v ur .'lonuai iuai u t uau v\ vu vuj^ w;; v m m ?uc fJT V~ curt "lent of ike arrest of negroes a? fugitive slaves, for the pnrpow of realizing the apprehension fee*. The following la one of n. aerlea of commitment* exh.blted in this counection : "The Marshal of the District of Columbia will receive Into his charge aud custody George Lee ?.-d Henry Lee.

"Given under my hand and eeal tLis slh dny of August. 1861 (Signed) Tboj. C. Dosjt, J. T." But bere it another similar commitment, enabling this same Individual to clutch fees for arresting fugitive slaves District of Columbia. County of WaiMngton, to icit: To the Marshal of the District of Columbia: Receive into your custody the body of Robert Brooks, herewith ser.t by A Duval, Constable of said county, brought before m?', Charles Walter, one of the Justices of the Peace in and for sold couuty, and charged before me with beI*ig a runaway slave?him therefore safely k?ep ia your nsld custody until be shall be discharged by due course of law, and for ao doing tbla aball be your sufficient warrant. Given under my band and seal tbia 17th day of S j trmber, In the venr of our Lord one thou>and eight hundred and 61. (Signed) I'Hii Walter, J. P. [l. a ] And atill another: " The Marshal of the District of Columbia will receive into hla charge and custody Cecilia Bell acd child?herewith sent per A.

(Signed) " Thomas C. Dour, J. P., [t. s.]" And yet another. The Marshal of the District of Columbia will receive Into his charge ar d cus'ody George Lee and Henry Lee (negroes), herewith sent per A. Duval, charged with being runaways, and no proof having been adduced to ine that said negroes are not runaways, tb*m therefore you will ?afe keep until discharged by due course of law. "Given under my hand ana seal this Slh day of August, 1061. (Signed) Thomas C. Donw, J. P." To this last commitment we append the release nf fh<> npcrrrp* f.*>pAnrl H?nrv 1 . whlrh will more fully disclose the nature of the transactions in which Mr. A. Duval hag been engaged " The Marshal of the Distriet of Columbia will release Henry Lee and George Lee, negroes, who were committed to jail by me on the Hth day of August. Is6l, charged with being runaways. Them release upon payment of all legal fees. " Given under my hand and seal this 21th day t>f September, l&ttl. (Signed) " Thomas C. Doss, J. P." "Mr Wise: These men were committed In the name of A. Duval. They are willing to pay what Is right. You had better receive his fee." (Signed) " Thomas C. Dokn, J. P." We are assured by Justice Donn that the negroes memionea in meic several commitments were brought to him and committed to prison a* runaways at the request of this **me Duvall, then a prison guard, who now parades bis mock philanthropy and love of Republican party principles In an attack upon the Mar. thai, who dismissed him from office for bis alleged misconduct, not only In arresting negroes for the apprehension fees, but because he believed blm guilty of receiving money from secession prisoners confined in the jail, a* a fee for procuring their release. This is the character of the teatimony upon which all th? charges agai nut Marshal Lamon are based. The reputation of the Marshal as a man and a public functionary is made to'shlne only the brighter by such attempts to asperse and injure him. His assailants should blush at the exposition of tbegroundlessnessof their complaints and their reliance upon such trashy and really contemptible evidence. The reader will naturally inquire why Senator* assan pumic omcers upon me testimony or aucb persona as this Mr. Duvall* We refer him to the following extract from the editorial columns of the Washington Republican for the answer to that question : " Mar*hai. I.a mom as an Exbcdtionkb ? We understand that Marshal Lamon yesterday cnt etr the Lead ?I Mr. Duvill, one of the keepers of the slave pen, or, as it la sometime called the District jail. Mr. Duvall has testified before the Potter Committee, and as he la not disposed to _i i ?? ? * conceal me miquiuea 01 me prison-bouse, It may be annoying to the Marshal to have such a person a out the establishment, especially ax beta opposed to slavery, slave stealing, and slave catching Slavery Isa beautiful Institution?It dies bard, bat It mutt go. and with It, all Ita lovers and snstalners.
