The committee refused ".o grant the request. He will be allowed to mak? his statement, however, next Tuesday. Avery and Magdirk.-Attorney Gen eral Flerrepont has received a telegram from U. 8. Attorney Dyer, at St. Louis, in re sponse to the reference of the applioatlor s for pardon in the cases of Avery and Maguire to that officer, raying ttat he would forwa.d by mail to the Attorney General his own views and that of thejudgenpon the subject.

The Committee on Expenditures in the Treauiy department >< iter lay afternoon examined Matthew Prender, of St. Louis, who has made the ridiculous statement that while an employe of the Treasury he aseer tail ed that the debt statements were ficti tious that money was seat for redemption which was never destroyed. He repe.atel ine charges contained in a general statement by him m St. Louis, and telegraphed broad cast from tbat point. The committee not I aving full knowledge of the subject under lnve-tigation. have decided to a>ic for the employment of an expert. Ex Secretary Richardson, ol tbe Treasury, has also been summoned to testify in the matter. Pren der "h examination was conducted in secret ses-ion. The dtmakes tor silvfr coin upon the Treasurer of the United S:a!^s are da ly increasing. Thus far the Treasury has dis '?i.!-ed i<i exchange for fractional notes H^ont a million dollars, and if i'lere w*s a law permitting the redemption of legal t. nder cotes and certificates of deposits in national ranks and other government de po itcrles, tlie disbursements from theTrea snry a lore would have been at least five million. Telegrams are receive 1 everyday by the Treasurer asking if he will a'.lorv sil ver to be paid for legal tenders, very many persons,including bank officer* in various p .rt? e>f the country, not seeming tounlei stai.d that the law Is mandatory in this re. spert, ai d that silver can be paid out In ex changes for fractional currency o.ily. The iMPEACiiMSNT Trial. - The fcenate galleries were well fllleJ aiiiin to-day, ar.d some time before 12 o'clock em ploy is were stationed at tbe foot of tne stairs to prevent any further accession to the crowd. At about 12:25 Gen. Belknap, unaccompanied, quietly entered a side door and took a seat at tbe table, lxiking quite as ruddy a;.d well as usual, and during the proceedings sat upright, and. to a casual ob server, seemed wholly Indifferent to what was passing. Gen. George A. Custer, dressed In light pants, black coat and white vest, sat on a sofa sandwiched between Rep resentatives Robbins, Blackburn and Cly mer. The motion of Mr. Carpenter for a po-t Someraentof the trial of the case until the rst Monday in December nex>, created <iulte a sensation, a hum of astonishment and a ripple of subdued laughter running through tne galleries, and Senators looking at one another with a peculiar smile. The WEDDING of Miss Augusta E. Shoe maker, daughter of Samuel M. Shoemaker, esq., of Baltimore, to Mr. William Cloud Boylston, took place yesterday evening at Kmaruel church. In that city, and brought together a verv large and fashionable assem blage, Including President Grant, ex Speaker Blaine, the Hon. Schuyler Colfax and wife.

The clergy present were the R?v A. M. Randolph, rector of the churcti, the Rev. Mr Holt, assistant rector; the Rev. Win. F. I.ockwood and the R^v. Dr. J. H Kccleston, oi Philadelphia. Tne preliminary service was read l>y the rector, ami the "marriage ceremony was performed by Dr. Eccleston, the utcleof the bride.

In tbe evening the newly married ps.1r received the congratulations of their friends, and afterwards left by the niijnt train for a tour in tLt west. Ti e Massachusetts republican state con vention met at Boston yesterday. Four del egates at large to the Cincinnati con\ ent'.on were selected, namely: Ex-Attorney General Hoar. Richard H. Dana, jr., E. M. Forbes and President Paul A. Chadbourne, of Wil liams college. Judge Hoar favors Mr. Blaine for the presidency; tne other three are said to prefer Secretary Bristow. The district delegates were not chosen. The sentiment of tbe convention seemed to be about equally divided between Blaine and Bristow. The Sl'Nday and Liqoor questions at the Ce>tenniai,.? At the meeting of the United States Centennial Commission in Philadelphia yesterday a memorial was received pjotestlrg against the sale of liquors on the Centennial grounds, and also memorials for ar.d against keeping the grounds open on Sundays. Committees were * ['tiolnted to consider them. An ixplosio* < k nvAi.i.N at the G^r n an mine, Newbury. Ma** . occurred y?s ? i i?y. Miners were e- _'?g?l warming .':in in ashes ? - .sled. Jas.

Mr. John I. liHienport Before the (vmmlilre. The examination of Mr. John I. Davenport was resnmtd this morning by t*ie Commit tee on Expenditures of the Department of Justice. In the absence of Mr. Caulfield, Mr. Chandler, of Georgia, presided, and pro cce<!e<1 in question the witness. Be was ask. d as to money received from the Atr? rnev General in 1*71. and whs pro ceetiin* to say that in that year he had ex. perrte.1 95.1x10 of his own money, and for this he had no Touchers. Mr Cochrane, interrnptins. said hf? de sired witness to confine himself to the mies tl??Ti asked. * Witr,ess rerl ed that the statement as to hN f5,(K0 expended was necessary a* prelim inary to what was to fo!!ow, because the f>,000 might tnrn up afterwards, and some ?luestion might b3 raised In reference to it i e then went on to explain that in IsTi hp r< ceived In all sr.,000 from the Attorney Gen eral the first payment of *_\ooo having been made in Au<ust of that year. In 1*7.! he re ceived f'JO.JHMI; in 1*73, **.000, and In 1874, * (K">. making in ail the sum of *34,000, and for the expenditure of which he had receipts. W Itness sh? asked what he hal done previ ous to August. 1*71, to authorize him Jo re ceive the money then sent him. He replied hy exhibiting a series of boobs which he had prepared for the purpose of DETECTING KRATDS Ore series was what he called block books; others were complete lists of registration arranged so tbat any name could be readily reached, and another series was maps or the city, lncicatirg every house; for which It was occupied; how many stories high each rouse was, and how many males it could possibly accommodate. Before receiving the first amount of ?5,000 he had spenl sums of money out of bis own rocket. This was expended for books, paper, and labor of a clerical character. Money was also expend ed In the detection ol frauds, as for instance he discovered where a large number of 1 RAUDUI.FNT SATURA I. I/ATION PAI'KRs were secreted, and money had to be used to secure them. By Mr. Conger?As I understand vou then you had Incurred large expenses prior to August, 1871, and as the expense was grow ing on yon. you went to Long Branch to see tne President to ask him if part of the fund con Id r.ot be used to continue the work? Witness ?Tbat Is it exactly. By Mr. 1'handh r ?Did you at any time In form the President that this expense had 1 een Incurred. Witness replied that he had explained the ma'ter to the President. He took the books ai d papers to Long Branch witbnim to show the President the class of work he was doirg. The money that was given to him was, therefore, to pay expenses that ha.1 been incurred in the past an<l such as would be Incurred in the future. The money was to pay for work actually done, and not for Information. Whatever was paid for in formation was paid out of witness' own pocke?. Ky Mr Cociraw: I?ld you always in ll cate on your chocks the purpose for wli eh if was given? Answer?I did not,sir. Question.? I And It^re a chec?t paid to a Mr. Pavi-y. Who Is Mr. Pavey? Answer ?He was a cl< rk in my office. The check to him was to pay the clerks uuder him in his room. Witness employed all clerks, but. as they were under Pavey s di rection. I he check for iheir pay was given to him in bulk. HOW THF PRESIDENT I XPER^TOOP IT. By Mr Conger ?Did the President at the time of jour conversation with him at Lin? Branch. or at any time thereafter, in any shape or mariner, late that any portion of this money was to be ,*ed for political nur po'eb? 1 Answer ? He did not. He understood that it was to 1 e ? sed in the detection of frauds at election, and to result iu a.faithful execution of ti e laws When the plan wa? explained to Gov Fislj he said he had examined the plans 10 prevent frauds in Paris and he thought Mr. Davenport's plan was hitler than any plan he had seen. Ily Mr. Cochraue ? Was this extra work done by you uuder any authority o; Una ac:s of l.. I or or any other law. Witness leplicd lhat after an examination lie foULd that in order detect.on of trana it was necefsary lhat one :uau should devote his whole attention to the subject for the purpose o! detecting fraud, especially as tt lee r.r four men were devoting all their time to the perpetration of fraud. He found it necessary to do this extra wor:<, for the law directed the detection of frauds Outdid n?'i lay down the plan. Qutstlon. Vou admit, then, that in this extra wcrlf j ou went beyond tne 01 1C and l-":\ Answer. I admit that the preparation of 1 t! < -e bor-ks and the other extra work was not specifically contemplated by these acts. Q. Was the work contemplated hy aov act of Congress? A. No sir. But it grew out of the necessi ties of the case; I deemed all those books necessary. For, take a convict book on which I had recorded the names of all convicts; the time they served in the pen itentiary, and other matt. rs by which thev were presented from voting. In the case of Terrence Quinn, for instance, it was found that be was a convict. Mr. Durham 'Interrupting) objected to witness going into that matter again In de tail. He had already told the committee of Quinn's case. Mr. Conger thought the witness has an swering in a propt 1 way. He regretted the tendency to stop the witness wuenever he was going ou to show how heexposed frauds Mr. Durham thought that remark was un fair. He (Mr. Durham* was as fair as any man. but he would stop the witness when ever he wanderei oft from the <iaeatlon. The witness produced what he called his convict book and described it. By Mr. Cochrane Is there any act of Con gress authorizing mat book .' Witness. No, sir. Question. Then it is your own idea, and you got it up because you thought it ueces sa ry ? Witness replied that he knew of no law which In precise terms directs the making of such a book: but he found it necessary to prevent frauds. He had also a book in which he recorded the deaths of males in New j York. This wa* also to prevent fraud. Question. Was there any law authorizing thai book? Witness said he discovered that a large number of persons registered and vote 1 in the names of deal men. It was therefore a necessity, jiUt ne knew of no statute that speckaiiy authorized it. i|uestion. Do you know 01 any statute tiiat impliedly authorizes it? Witness knew of no authority except that clause of the law which makes it the duty of the commissioners to use all j>ossible means in the detection ard prevention of election frauds. '-iuestion. Do you know of any statute that gives a commissioner discretion to prepare boons like the^e and do extra work. W ltness knew of no such law except such as was implied. But the President, tne At torney General and tiie witness after a full consultation thought that this extra wurk was necessary. By Mr- Conger ?Was not the appropria tion out of which this mouey was paid made to detect frauds iu elections, leaving its dis bursements to the discretion of tiie Attorney Genera 1? Witness replied that that was it, and it was because of this discretion that the Pre sident aud the Attorney General authorized In reply to Mr. Wait, witness further said that his books had accomplished tne object at which he aimed, and democrats as well as republicai ? cone led tbat Act. Mr. Durham wanted witness to name any democrats who had approved of his mode of ij?-tecting the frauds, and witness named Colonel John R. Fellows, Isaac Sherman who was a Greeley man), James M. Brown j ar.d Foster Dewey, late private cecretary to i Wm. M. Tweed. Dewey told witness in the ' Hon man bouse not long *go ' We in New York know what youraystem has done, aud If any one proposes to buck up against It it will not be New York democrats." Witness did not pretend to say that the democrats approved of getting up the books. He had never told anyone that there was no au thority for tbls extra work. His death re. cord book prevented many frauds. Mr. Davenport was going on to explain his books at some lengtn when Mr. Durham objected, on the ground that he was proceed ing to make a speech. Mr. Conger again objected to the interrup tion of the witness. He believed It thedutv of the committee todiscovei frauds, and lie bad never seen so good an opportunity to have the means of fraud explained. The committee then took a recess till 2 30 o'clock.

II<ni\lin testified tuat he was an assistant physician at the Insane Asy lum: have beeu there four years: have been a practising physician since 1*>: had a I year's experience In an asvlum before he went to the government asylum; after that S?! 12,|e"erai' Puttee; was Introduced to T ? ?T. y 1 r" M?rreli. Mrs. Taylor said she had heard in passing the Institution sounds of blows as if some one was being beaten. She said that thesouuds came from the lower floor on the extreme eastern end ot the building. Told her that It was im yoselble, atd told her that he had adopted means which would prevent such a thing that be had confidence in the attendants' and that they were kind to the patients: thit It any one had been abused they would im mediately be discharged .She said she ha I heard the screams, and witness told her that there were several women in the waras who I-ad a habit ot crying out as if they were be. Ing pcunded within an inch of their lives and screamed so lend that they cojld be heard a quarter of a mile, when no rie was mar them. Have never struck a-j insane woman or an insane man, or ot'jer person who was under his charge. The statement th8t he had ever struck the woman was as foul as hell: treated patients as s:ck people and kindly; always instruct his attendants only to strike a patient. In self-defence, and then only when their life was in danger There are "a) patients there, and as a gene lal rr.le there is oue attendant for every 10 patients. It is a leading feature of meutal ira a 1 to complain of real and imaginary grievances. Have encouraged patients to complain of anything they do not like, and in the vast majority of cases of complaints and that the grievances are imaginary en tire y. Sick parents are visited a i; ;rl i,g and according to tbt grr vity ot By Mr. Mu'cbler ? ?a? Mr. Wr.ite wliei he was t i(.urlit:o theasyiurn, he came tti^re Willi twenty others. Dr. Chase designate-; lie room ior him. .They all ctme from the i^oidieis Home, at Dayton, Ohio, in one piir y- A 1 way s obtain as much of the bis tory of the patients as they can, so as to prmerly treat therr. Are sometimes de ceived by the leprcsecUtions made about tr.e patients. White was not under charu of wilt ess, ai d saw very littleof him. Dr th;ise had chaige of him while Dr. Morreli was away. Attendants are required to fur nlsh recommendations before th?y are em ployed. Attendants are frequently changed ihey are employed on a month's trial' Altendants receive ^20 per month and board ai d lodging. Some stay the.-.- for as !<.:ig as ten .-.ears: frequently three or four yvirs three or iour have been tbpro three vears Only ]j.lo\v of tLe female attendants, or the twei ty-ihiee or twenty /inn- female attend ants now there nine have been there for more than two years. When Mrs. Taylor went away witness went up to the ward to exam ine into the cause of the seeming whipping. Went there in twenty minutes after the fact was reported. Did not discover the cause of the alarm. Went to the ward that Mrs Taylor spoke of. She did not speak ol anv particular room. Asked the attendants.aud received information from them that no oue had been beaten. The attendants could not or would not point out which particular pa tient it was who was screaming. Toey sim ply said that it might be one of several pa tients, but did not state any particular patient. Do not know why the other pi tieuts said, as Mrs. Taylor says, "Put her l-i a strong room." Do not know why the cu* taln was pulled down lu the month or July. 1 W ouid not think from that that there was something wrong. If the patients wanted to, they could pull down the blinds. T.-ie order to attendants is to drive persons away from in front of the windows. If persons want to come in they can do so. If Mrs Taylor was ordered away, it was simply ac" cording to the instructions that are given to the attendants. Find that th s Is necess^rv On the third floor is an excited class or fe male white patients. Mr. Voorhees, counsel ror Dr. Nichols, put in evidence TWO I,ETT*R9 WRITTEN BV MRS. TAYIOR in relation to her brother, Thomas P White The first was written when he was firit sent to the asylum, and the second on July >> 1^.3. stating that she had secured a boarding place tor him in the country, and that shT was perfectly satisfied with his treatment at tie asylum, and that she thought tae chacfce would be benefit ial to h'm. MISS ISA BEr. LOtJI.S A ARMOR testified that she resided in this city and was lor three years employed as an assistant supervisor at the asylum. The duiies of sup< rvisor is tolookafiei the attendants and ratier.1s.and to see that the attendants treat the patients kindly. She also did the mar keting and looteed after the clothing and bed ding. In relation to the screaming spoken of by Mrs. Taylor, she testified that she was in Cherry ward; heard the screaming went to the window, and seeing Mrs Taylor approaching one or tho win dows, told her it was not the place for visitors, but she paid no attention to her. The lady still approached the win dow, and she spoke to her several times frcm the inside, but Mrs. Taylor said noth ing. ATJerwards, when she went to the re ception room. Dr. Hamlin fold her what Mrs. Taylor had said,and she informed him that it came from a patient who was slap ping a shutter in a private room. Have never known of but two attendants striking patients, and they were immediately dis charged. By Mr. Mutchler:?Mrs. Taylor was not alone. The only reason she bad ror telling her to go away was because it was against the rules for persons to come near the win dows. She was not ordered away because *heie was anything to conceal. By Mr. Voorhees:?The rule is for the dou ble purpose or protecting patients and visi tors; the flriit rrom being excited and th? latter from disagreeable sights and soands. Fy Mr. Turts:?The rood was plain, well corked, but very good and plenty of it. Once saw a piece of tainted meat there, but it was sect back to the kitchen. She called Dr Hamlin's attention to It MRS CATHIKIXE Ri'RIWSOlf testified that she was employed in Eim waid-a eolored remale ward. Have been there ror 20 months: before tha*, In Spruce ward. Have never known or patients being whipped; have never struck a patient though often have been struck by patients Have several patients under her charge who are hysterical aEd -given to screaming at times. Know nothing about Mrs. Taylor and never knew that she ever called at the' asylum. By Mr. Mutchler:?Have known of attend ants being discbaiged for striking a patient. Was mistaken in saying that she never knew of a patient being struck; that was the only instance she knew of. The food was very good, but sometimes have bad meat; In the two cases where bad meat was sent up it was tent back and reported to the doctor. Tne c'uti irg was good. as *w also (he b?*J cloth leg. which was always kept clean. MIPS A.1XII CRalOHTO.S testified that she bad been employed in Elm ward for ten months. There are thr?e at tendants for the thirty-five patients in the ward An attendant who struck a pattern was discharged right away; know of bat one case where a patient was struck Once or twee the meat was tainted a little and wa? s? 1.1 back; suppose that the meat that wak sent lip in Its place was good meat. Patients arpear to be comfortably fed and clothed and have enorgh to eat. The wards are kept clean; :<K>k after tlinne who are Incapable oi taklt g care of themselves; know of but one patient who was Injected with vermin, and she had them oil her when she came.

He insists tnat It was Mr. R?l llns that said that an ln\e-tlgatlou might defeat the re-election of Mr. Blame. He says E. H Itolllns, the secretary, took me to one side and told me that 1 must withdraw that motion for an investigation of the bond transaction, as it world involve James G Blaine. He *at<! tlir fnf rlnrtlo?WSTB ? I at liand. and Blaine was a candidate for re election to Congress in Maine. An expr?ure of the transaction Just at that time would be sure to defeat him. With that I wi'hdrew the motion. Subsequently I took J. H.

He repeated that I did.aud that an investigation iron Id be sure to kill otr Mr. Blaine at the ap proaching election. Afterward*, when trie luvestlgating committee,of which Jeremiah M. Wilson was chairman, was in session, ard E. H Rollins was on the stand, 1 tele graphed Wilson to ask the witness certain questions concerning the Fort Smith and Little Rock lionds, hut In noticing the daily repirtsof the core mi tire afterwards. I saw that no such questions were asked. On the 3d of Febiuary, l>-73. I wrote to Wilson. tn? chairman of tie committee, more fully about the matter, detailing the facis I have just stated, but I did not mention Blaine's name. I stated that the transaction Impli cated a piominent memlK r of the republican party. That letter vra^ copied into my regu lar letter book at Indianapolis, aud cau be referred to any lime. I never re-eived any auswer to the letter to Wilson, hut ou the .'tdh of February, just twenty-three days later, Mr. Delano, Secretary of the Interior, wrote a letter to a prominent republican of ficial. saying it was deemed besi, on the part of ttie j;ove-rnment, to change the entire board of directors of the Union Pacific rail road, and that be therefore proposed to ap point some one from Iudianajiolis In the p ace of J. 8.
