Toe petition for his pardon was not presented to the President until yesterday, and this morning wss rtferred to the Attorney Gen eral. in addition to the petition signed by numerous editors and prominent citizens of St. Louis, tbe attorney General has nume rous letters from prominent individuals else where recommending McKee's pardon. No action has yet been taken, but It Is generally thought the case will be favoraoly con sidered. ______ President Hinckley, of the Philadel phia, Wilmington and Baltimore railroad, was before Congress several years ago to securc additional compensation for carrying the United States mails. Falling In this, he bas from time to time annoyed the PoJt Office depart mem with threats to theeflect that he would not after a certain time allow mail trains to pass over his road. Owing to the entirprise and publicsplritof Col. Scott, id the Pennsylvania roa<l, who stood ready to carry the malls over his own liues, Mr. Hit ckley, finding he could not (as he evi dently hoptd to do) iucommole tne govern ment ?nd the public, and that he would lo?? the CGimtfESiHiOU he ivas receiving alto gether, hnaliy consented to allow the old arrangement to continue. He uow snows the resentment he entertains towards Con gress by refusing to allow Col. Scott's special ttain to convey Congressmen and other in vited guests from Washington to tho Cen tennial, to paw over his road. As Mr. Trots would say, ?'It's not of the slightest conse fiutnce,' since the train will go by w iy of York aiid Lancaster. It Is fortunate for the traveling public that Mr. Hinckley does not control all the railroad highways between Washington and Key York. Death of a Washington Correspon dent?

He still suffered much from pulmonary disease, and was quite feeble. About a week ago be seemed to lose all hope, and going home one afternoon after his labors, lay down upon tbesofaand remarked significantly to bis wife, "Now I have come home to stay." He served with credit some times as chief and sometimes as assistant Washington correspondent of a number of prominent journals, among them the New York Herald, Philadelphia Frew, Philadel phia Evening Telegram, New York Keening Telegram, and Boston Globe. He was the Washington correspondent of the last named journal when he died. He at one time, under Colonel Forney s ownership, was managing editor of the Chronicle in this city.

Mrs. Sara J. Spencer, president of the District of Columbia Wo man Franchise association, *ead the centen nial memorial; reviewed the various court decisions, appealed from their Inconsisten cies to common sense, justice and humanity; showed the desolate condition of tbe much abused District, whose jails and alms houses were her only thriving quarters; reviewed tbe arguments of SeDatois on civil rights and tbe woman fjuestion; reviewed popular objections and theories, an?t appealed with startling power for protection for the pcor, the Ignorant, tna betrayed, the outcast, the downtrodden of her own sex. Miss Lily D. Wood, vice president of the local association, said men should be too brave and courteous to women to treat them as they had the colored men, making their enfranchisement a political neoesslty only, not a question of Justloe and right. Miss Mary Foster, secretary of the D. C. associa tion, gave reasons why women dare not, can not claim tbelr rights as a mass, any more than other slaves. Tbeir opportunity, even to toil, depended on the good will of men their masters. Mr. Henry Wilson, of Eng land, upon inquiry by Mr. Handee, of Ver mont, said that the discussion or the social evil licence laws In England had tended largely to popularise woman suffrage, and ??bat women householders there now vote on the leading issues of the d&y. Mr. Buckner or Ma, asked ir they dli military service. Mrs. Spencer asserted that women, as mothers, furnish the whole army, and that at a prioeless cost,and when men are slain their hearts are broken. Women would vote for peace, not war, arbitration, not bloot shea. Th$ committee asked that Mrs. Spen cer's argument be printed for distribution In the House and Senate.

Tbe Committee on Eipenditures of the Interior Department resumed Its investi gation of the affair* of tbe C. 8. Insane asylum ttals morning: Mil. a. L Kenan text:fled that her eon *M at one time an inmate of the U. S. Insane Asylum. He was an epileptic patient, an I wa? paralyzed on the left side. Had an Interview with Dr- Nichols, when she told him the history of the case. He said he would extend to him a father's care, and that her son would not be put among insane patients, I not among convalescent cases. The only tl 1 s required was restraint. She was show i I a \ e;y comfortable room In Beech ward, an t was told ibst her ron wonld be given quar ters there. After leaving b*r son wltb l)r. Nichols she went to New York, where the wa? taken sick. She then went the fall after wards to California for her health. Her house in Chicago was burned during the Are there. While in California s^e frequently wrote to her son, but did not receive an answer. She then wrote Dr. Nichols, but received 110 answer from him. She then learned that the pension of her son bad been stopned. Asked General J. H. Baker by letter several times why the peaslon was stopped, but con Id get no satisfaction. In ? August, 1*73, she returned to this city and I called at the asylum to see Dr. Nichols, but was informed that Dr. Nichols was on his I summor vacation, and bad gone away with his wife. Asked to see her son. and after waiting at the asylum reception rmm two and a half beurs her son was brought down. ? She did not know him. He wa? looking li ke a haggard old man. He was shivering, and water was dripping from him. She saw that he had been bathed and scrubbed up so that he would be presentable. He said I to her," Mother, for God's sake, take me out of this horrible place!" He screamed out as he saw her. Hi? head and body were tilled with vermin. Kxamlned him in the prej ence of Dr. Morrell. His head was a living mass of vermin. Dr. Morrell a*ked her, ??Do you think your son has changed.'" She answered that she would not know htm ex cept that he was lame. When her son came down Into the reception room he was dressed Jn a new snlt of clothes, the same suit that she bad 6ent him six months before that. Her son, as well as the attendant, told her that he bad never put the clothing on be fore; that he was not allowed. Asked Dr. I Morrell in what ward her son was kept, and he told her Sycamore ward. Her son said mat he had been placed among the crazy patients, and that he had b9en beaten by them, and was all bruised up, and was covered with sores. Dr. Morrell said lie found her son In tnat werd when he came to the asylum, and that be (Dr. M.) was not responsible for her son's condition; asked Dr. Morrell to put bltn In another ward and be said be would. 8he hardly knew what to do. Her son was in such a terrible condition tnat she could not take bim away until he was cleaned. She bronglit a clean suit of clothes to bim a few days afterwards and took bim away. She called upon the acting secretary of the Navy and related the case to bim, who wrote to Dr. Nichols. He answered, denying the mam charges, but admitted that he was covered with venniu. A lady who resides in Wash ington accompanied ber wheu she visl ed the asylum, and with her saw the vermin on her son. He was put there in O:tober. K9, ai.d remained there until Sept, 1^73. Went to see Commissioner of Pensions Baker and was told that he was oh on his summ?r leave of abscnce. AftewarJs went to tie Seaton House branch of pension ofSce, and I there learned that no clothing had been furn ished to her son, when she knew that she furnished it herself. The next day she called and saw Baker and related the case to him, I that her son was a nava! pensioner, and that his pension had been stopped. Gen. Baker said that Dr. Nichols had drawn the pen sion. Baker gave her no satisfaction, and I really n suited her. Tbo reason assigned for I Dr. Nichols drawing her son's pension was i hal fcftd f himself tip as a w.ird of her son, and drew her oeCBlon. She then learned That all of the letters that Kuc had writ ten io Baker had been given Dr. Nichols. She de mai ded her letters, and told Baker that Dr Nichols had them, and asked wdo gave them to him. Baker Mr. Prior, one of his subordinates, that the letters must be returned to her. SLe said she would not I cease to investigate the matter. Baker Anally told her that he would not let her ? have bis pension, and that he would take his guardianship from her; that Dr. Nichols I bad sent In such a big bill for the bjard of her son that It had eaten up her son s pen sion. She told him that she would not pay I Dr. Nichols a single cent, as the government gave her the right. Whoa she left biaa in ihe asylum she felt confident that he would be well treated. Aftei wards General Baker came to the conclusion that there was some thing in her statement, and had the case In vestigated by a physician of the Pension office. This physlc;an reported the facts to Sec mi BAkW.wbo ordered her thai take her son away from the asylum, fey ?ug: ??lam satisfied that r?r. -..Cuols has been traducing vou and misrepresenting this case, and If you "do not take him away I will do so myself, as be Is a ward of the government." She then got an order to take her son out of the asylum. She took him to610 ltth street, where she resided temporarily, and after wards, through the kindness of Gen. Baker and other officials, pnt her son in the Mount Hope asylum, near Baltimore. 8oon after wards she took bim to her home in Chicago, where hs is now. He is very studious and , very fond of reading. His mind is still weak. Afterwards the pension was fully establish ed again, and be now receives a pension of #50 per month. His pension for one year had been suspended. Gen. Baker said this was all brougbt about by Dr. Nichols, who bad maliciously misrepresented her, ana that be said no clothing had been sent to her son, when she possessed letters from Dt. N ichols acknowledging the same, and or plenty of clothing. (These letters and receipts for clothing were presented to the committee by the witness] There was no furniture in her sou's room, although she bad sent some there. I Mrs. Van Kewan then presented to the oommlttee all the papers relating to the case which bad passed to and from the Pension office. 1 There was an arrangement between her father-In-law and Dr. Nichols to get her son's pension money. She showed Gen. Baker by Dr. Nichols' own letters the falsity of Dr. Nich. ols statements to Gen. Baker. Baker said that he intended to take all the soldier boys out of the asylum, and that It was lubuman to keep them there In such a condition. Her son was forced to lie on the floor without a mattress, and was required to sleep In a the roof of which leaked so tnat he got wet while asleep, from which he con tracted inflammatory rheumatism. Hereon was a christian and never used a profane word. He is now'J5 years of age. Attend ants there told her tbat Dr. Nichols did not know anything about tbe patients; tbat be paid more attention to pigs, bogs, tbe farm, Ac., than be did to tbe patients; that be took little Interest in the patients, and visited them but once a week. Her son said tuat the meet was often bad. Mrs. Van Kewau said tbat a man, whom she afterwards saw with Dr. Nichols in conversation, called to see her several times and asked ber how much money she wanted to the city. He called to see ber at 610 14th street three or four times. He said he wanted her to leave the city, and that he would pay ber a good round sum. She ordered him out of ber bouse. Beveral of tbe attendants have told ber tie at they could give damaging facts against Dr. Nichols, but that Dr. Nlcbols' local Influence was so strong tbat be would prevent them from getting work if they told anything against him. [Mrs. van Kewen Is from Chicago, and ap peared before the committee iu accordance with a subpoena ] The committee then adjourned until Fri day next. A Lawtxb Comvict*d oriFOKOcrr.?
