Kabcock in toruied the Solicitor ot the Treasury I?t part ment of the facta tn the case. The government detective force wa* thereupon set to work to ferret out the gnilty parti *. Their lirst visit was to the house designated in the circulars, No. IJ?; street, at?d there in large printed letters was found the name of the Kev. J. Hale Barney placarded on one of the front parlor windows. The landl.-dv of the house, on being ou est ioned, stated that about the JOth of la?.t March -hereceived a letter ad>lressed from the National hotel, in this city, to Madame , ??landlady, 4JK Hth street/' asking if the writer, who signal himself Kev. -I. Hale Barney, could rent the parlor when vacated by Senator Clay ton. She finally determined that he could. Nhe w a* about goiuf north on a visit, and did so, at>d tor some time heard nothing from him KtV. 4. HALS BAKJEY'S TKT5K. On the 26th of March a small new trunk and a package wac bronght to the house by Adams express company, wnich her daughter refused to receive. Indue conr*e of busincs? she re eeivt'd a letter flom Adams' express asking what should be done. One B. S. Pardee, a native of Connecticut, who had an upper room in her house, advised her by all means to receive the tiauk. and to accept the rent for half a month which had been ten lered, and. taking the advice, the trunk was received, placed in a back comer of the room, and with instruction* in a letter from Kev.??. Hale Barney (who had not yet put in an appearance) that all his mall matter should be deposited In it through a letter hole in the top. In the meantime, by previous aKreement. Mr. I?. S. Pardee had moved down into the bedroom back of the parlor. Kev. Mr. Barney also sent the landlady from Baltimore a sum ot money to nay for registered letters. and< by his request tne' sign above referred to wa piit upon the parlor window, and also on the parlor .loor. The mail matter began to be somewhat liravv. and was duly deposited in tli?. trunk, awaiting' the arrival of Mr. Barney. One ot the detectives rented a room over the parlor iast Kridav. while another was instructed tu watch the house from the outside. From that nw went to that of Pardee's arrest yesterday tiiort ing he I f not for an instant been beyond THE *TH T?-'l -? ItVKILLAJtCE OF THE s t;.

In the meantime afac-simile of the circular an-1 all its contents were printed for decoy let ter* Marked money was inclosed in the letters, and various excuses were made in apparent good faith tor the small amounts. They were signed "A Friend ofthe Cause,"' ??A Sympathi zer." ?'pej.end u|a?n me," &e., Jfcc. Two let ter carrier* were instructed to deliver the let ters at any hour of tiie day. Madame received them and put them'ln the trunk. TH* FIRST ARRKST. Y?strr<lay morning B. S. Pardee left h ? lodg ings about s o'clock and went to Dubant's for hi- breakfast. While he was gone the trunk was examined and the mail found undisturbed. He returned to hi? room, and after remaining a tall hour be again went out. In less than half a minute the trunk was again examined and the letters missing. The officer outside was signaled; Pardee was (jtiietly followed to the l?-t office, and while in the act of dropping a letter was arrested. He quietly accompanied the ?.t:icer U# the headquarters' or the police. His |k r*oii was searched and a |>ortiou of the tends mailtii to him Tnesday evening by the officers wa? totuid on him. and other (etpcrs, confirming the suspicion that Pardee and Kev.

The officers th -n returned to Irs back parlor where a search was made, ami a lot of blank paper, similar to that ou which the circular wa? printed, was found, together with a lot of . nvelopes like those with the printed address. Among other things found was the address of Bai lee. 4ft' Pennsylvania avenue. THE KECOSD ARREST. The third *torr front of 4'2H 6th street was occupied by Mr. A. Schuyler Sutton, and the various observations of the officers led them to the conclusion that he was concerned in iheplot. Tbev had been seen together a good deal, and it was'known that he had been writing more or lew for Paidee. He was at one* taken into custody. but denied all knowledge of Pardee and his operations, until on arriving at the * a'ion bouse he broke down and acknowledged hat he had been employed writing for Pardee, and had received his pay. On bis person was touisl some of the marked money inckwed to Barney the evening previous. He was leiked up and not allowed to communicate with any one. not even counsel, or to know of the arrest ot Patdee. THR THIRD ARREST. Immediately alter thi* an officer returned to Pardee's room, ami when they were about leaving, the door-bell was rung. It was answered t.v the landlady, and a young man Inquired for Pardee, stating that he bad a package for him, and an engagement to see l!m between 11 and 1J o'clock. He reonested Ma-lame to inform Pardee that ne had called, and said his name was W. McKean. The officer followed him up 7th street, and when opposite the Post ^ iffice he stood there for some minutes, atitlous'v looking up and down the street, aa if wa'tingtVr Pardee to come along. Finally he went Into the Patent Office ami was there arrested. It turn-d out that he was a printer, and had been em ployed in the office. 1RS1DR OF rilDR'l OFFICE. Having Dm address of Pardee's office, the officers compelled him to a .-company them there, and with ?h# key* taken from Pardee, the office IH opened. Haif way up the first I f ight of steps the sign "B. 8. Parties" ?U I to a rt?p, At fne tii> of th? ?r>' door lett, Pardee** slfB again appeared, and on ent- ring the room several desks and two new chairs. a store, ooal scattered about, and a pile of torn np paper, and among it a portion of the circulars, were found. There was a sinaT printing press, several new cases tilled with new tyne, two or three oM eases with old type, and a quantity of partial "pi/' which was a portion of a story which appeared not long since in the Sunday Capital, according to the l statement of McKean. There was a new com peting stick set for the width of the circular, a new planer and mallet. new brushes and a new but small composing stone. In the northwest corner of the room a trap under the floor had been constructed, probabry for the purpose of biding the printing material should occasion require it. In the minds of the officers there is no longer any mvstery in reward to the Her. J. Hale Barney; lie and B. 8. Pardee are one and the same person. He is a genteel-looking inau of good address and plausible manners. parhee's aktbcedents. Pardee is said to be the son of a wealthy banker in Hartford. Conn., and otherwise re spectably connected. He wa? a colonel in oue of the Connecticut regiments dnring the war, and since then has acted as clerk to an Indian agent is Washington territory. Since his arrival in this city he has given it out that he was settling Indian claims. He took theofhee at 4?*? Pennsrlvania Javenue soon after bis arrival here, "ard procured tynes and other printing material necessary for the printing of bis circulars, and engaged Mr. McKean to do the work. A* IMPORTANT WITNESS. Mr. McKean, who has beeu released on ?2.000 bail for his appearance as a witness, and against whom no charge is made, states that be has known Pardee for only a few weeks; that he kLewfno other man in connection with il i - busi ness but Mr. Pardee, and was led to believe that he (Pardee) was an authorized agent ot* Cen. Babcock and a personal friend of the President, and Interested in the North Pa ciiic railroad company, and that the most of the work he has done for him has been netting tvj?e for a pamphlet in the Interest of that road, and to print the circu lar* and envelopes. He states that when spiroHched by Mr. Pardee, he told the latter tha. he w as so'engaged that he 1m I no leisure time except nights, and that Mr. Pardee stated tha~ was just what he wanted?some one to woik at night. Another occupant of the same house on Pennsylvania avenue had suspicions that SOMETH1NO WAS HOINO 0* WROHO thei-e, and reported to |?olice headquarters some two week.-* ago that he thought parties were en gaged here in making counterfeit money, but no notice was taken ot the report?at least so far is i> known. At all events, the work went on. THE OTHER PARTY ARRESTED is A. Schuyler Sutton, who is believed to be a nar nerof Pardee's, as the money appear* to have l?een divided between them. Sutton is from Ohio, and was a captain in one of the Ohio regiments during the war, and was wounded in the tace in one of the battles. Sub sequently be held a clerkship in the Census office. Among his effects the officers hive found a large collection of autographs of Seu atois, nu mbers of Congress, and other distiu gniihod men in all parts ol' the country, which, frou letters louisl on him, it appears that he ol'tnined on the pretext of collecting an album ol autographs, but which the officers think was to be used for some fraudulent purpose. THE Dt'PEI> POSTMASTKUS. T ic Postmaster General has telegraphed for sevtral of the jostmasters who were duped by the circulars to come here as witnesses. and it Is rot probable that a hearing will be given until their arrival. THE irrSM STILL COMlN<; IN. T!ie scheme was evidently in its incipiencv, as hi far as known there have been b'lt about ."V5 letters received. Kvery mail, however, brii t:H In more, and on application at the city post of ice at 2 o'clock to-day a Star reporter w as shown six letters which had arrived this morning, addressed to J. Hale Barney?one mai.ed at Paducah, Kv.,oneat Angelica. X. Y., one at Chilicothe, Mo., one at l.awrence btirgh. Kansas, and the other two so indistinct as not to be read. Some of the letters, which have been opened by the officers contain *lo. seme ?3, and ONE POOR POSTMASTER states that owing to pecuniary embarrassm -nts. and his salary being only $ ViO per annum, be could forward only U2, which was all he had, but it was cheerfully given, and he hoped It would be satisfactory. Sonir are returned w ith the simple words "too thin," and others state that if the endorsement of the Postmaster Gen eral was attached to the circular the mtnev would be forthcoming. PARDEE'S PRECAUTION*. It seems that every precaution had been taken by Pardee that ue could think ol, but b>' could not guard against marked money, w hich is the strongest evidence against him. After sending out the circulars and envelopes, in order to test whether or not the scheme had been detected, be sent out decoy letters in tlie ?ame kind of envelopes, some ot which fell into the hands of the officers, ami to keep up hi* contideiice these were all returned to him through the regHlar channel by the officers. The trunk and coriteuts are in the hands of the IMstrict Attorney, and will be produced at the hearing. All the money thus far received, as far as known, is ?79, ?19 of which was recov ered? ?12 from Pardee aud ?i from Sutton. The Colored Public NehooHi. CONDITION OP THE PREPARATORY HIGH SCHOOL. At the meeting of the board of colored school trustees last evening, Prof. Yashon presented the application of Mrs. S. A. Martin for ap (?ointment a- teacher of drawing; referred. Also, the application of Miss .lulia Luekett for leave of absence from May 1st next ou account of ill-bea'th; granted. The superintendent, Mr. G. F. T. Cook, pre sented a report on THE PREPARATORY Hid!! SCHOOL. in compliance with a resolution adopted at the last meeting. He says the condition of the scbool cannot l?e considered fair. Since the month of I>ccember its irregularity and disorder have been a constant source of aniiovauce to the other schools located id the building, and as a consequence have been prolific ot iiuui-ro-.i complaints. The furniture and other S' liool property has not been well cared for. As to the cost of conducting the school, It loots up ?2,994.05; whole number enrolled, 92; average number enrolled, *2; cost per pupil on whole number, $31.90: do. on average number. v.,5.Ti). In school years'71 and *72, the whole number enrolled was-to; average number, 33; cost per pupil on whole number, ?20; cost ou average number, 919.00. From the above it is seen that the cost of conducting this school for th>' cur rent school year, aside from the ordinary inci dental expenses, will lie $2,904.95, which is *2,039.95 greater than that of the previous year. Since, however, the entire enrollment, the"cur rent school year is twice that of the previous year, a fairer estimate will be found in the cost j?er pupil, which, on the entire enrollment, is *11.90, and on the average #x.52 greater than the previous year. Accompanying the re|H>i t is a complaint of Miss Kmuia Y.
