A tub- com mitt ee of tbe House Ju<liclary Committee this morning commenced the In vestigation Into Uie *64,000 scandal charged a;alnst Mr. Blaine In connection with the bonda of tbe Little Roc* and Fort Smith Railroad company, of Arkansas. Mr. HarHxofi, of Indianapolis, WJU first sworn. He testified that at a meeting or tbe beard of directors of tbe Union Pacific Rail road company Mr. Rollins, tbe secretary and treasurer of tbe company, bad asked htm not 10 press an examination as to how the iionds or tne Arkansas road were acquire t by the company, for tbe reason that It would involve Mr. Blaine, and future his chance* for re election to Congress. He stated that tbe interview printed as having been ti<*d with blm by a reprtsentatlve of tue ladian a polls S'-nUnel was correct. Mr. Mulard, a government director of the road, corroborates Harrison, butsaia h's un derstanding of Rol tin's objection to the in v?tigation was that It would involve a prominent man, and taat Mr. Blaine's name was not mentioned. /fon. JaiHt* T. nV-ton, another Government director, testified that he had neVer told Horace White, of the Chicago Tribune, or any body else, that Mr. Blaine bad ever made any statement with reference to tbe matter other than that made by him publicly from hla seat In the House of Representatives. F. M. MoUuis, tbe treasurer of tbe company, said that he bad heard that Blaine would be InvolvM by an investigation because be bad beard irom some source, which he conld not, now remember, that he would be. H-? de nt <?d, however, ihat he drew Mr. Harrison asiie to make the statement, becaue the room waa a small one, and he could not well bavedoue so. He ala'? denied that he t<Sld Mr. Harrison that Blaine would be Injured in bla Congressional election by an investi gation, and for tbe reason that be could not have done so because Mr. Blaine had been triumphantly elected In hia district threa days before the meeting of the board of direc tors took place. Mr. Rollins further teetifled that to satlafy bis own mind in relation to the hearsay that Mr. Blaine would be involved by an exam ination of tbe matter, he made a thorough examination of the books of tbe company, and every other aource calculated to confirm or dispel tbe charge, and be long ainee be came satisfied tbat tbe rumor was a mistake, and tbat Mr. lilalne bad nothing to do with tbe transaction. in tbe moat remote or indi reel manner. Witness waa long since of tbe opinion that tbe charge waa a cruel alander on Mr. Blaine. The Planet Mercury.?For the re^t of month the planet Mercury can be seen in our western sky under circumstances un usually favorable. At about eight o'clock in the evening, looking toward the west, where the horizon la nearly clear from ob struction, Venus is seen, nearly at lta great est distance from the nun, and approaching the time of its greatest brilliancy. Below, and toward the right, will be seen two atars; the lower one, shining brightly in tbe twi light, being Mercury, and the upp9r, fainter star being Mars. By watch'.ng these planets from day to day Mercnry will be seen to ap proach Mara until May 25, after which .t will rapidly approach tnc horizon; and soon after Jane 1 both will be lost in the twilight. I will add that just above Venus are Caitor and Pohux, the Twins; toward the right Is Capella, and toward tbe left Is Procyon, all bright etara.?[ Henry M. FarkJiurst, in y. Y. Jhrald. ? _ Extortion on the part of the restaurants ou the Centennial grounds Is already attract ing the attention of the preas. The N. York Tribune puts the French restanrant, the ' -Trols Freres," as oonsplcuous in this course. A late letter of its correspondent says: "A distinguished member of Congress witj a party of friends took a light lunch there. There were five of them, and they drank no wine. The bill was S12. Two bunches of lettuce, that cost perhaps three cents apiece, were charged #1. A Pniladalohla journalist went with a lady to this tempieof high living and paid ?4 for a very email chicken, a little bread and butter, and a bottle of claret that would fcaye ranked in Fiance as vln or.U nalte, and been included In the menu with out charge. A New Vorker went in and, ai tounded at the charge of ninety-five cents for ft cup of coffee and two cakes, refused positively to pay. After a consultation be iweenti.e garcon and the restaurateur the bill was reduced to tb.'rty-one cents." Dilatari for Blaine.?a apecipldis patch from Wilmington, Delaware, to the Baitlmo.e American says: Republican pri maries to elect delegalea to the Slate Con vection, which meets at Dover, next Thura day, were held Saturday afternoon. There was an active contest, mainly involving the selection of the Senatorial delegate to Cincinnati, and the result mean* a Blaine triumph, although the delegation was un pledged. Delaware's three delegates to th? National Convention will therefore, It may be asaumed, vote for Blaine, bnt it cannot be definitely atated that they will be ao In structed. Ait Underground Pipe for Crooked Whisky.?Revenue officials at San Fran cisco have dlacovered an underground pipe from Bayview distillery, South San Fran cisco, to an outlet under the wharf of the es tablishment, aome hundred yard8 distant, whence evidently large amounta of crooked whisky have been ahipped. An assessment or *175,000 baa been levied on the Antloch distillery on account of alleged crooked whisky manufactured laat yean The pro* firletor, Charlea Yoat, claims the aaseaament h in the nature of blackmail, beoause be re fused to Inform on other distillers, and pro - poaea memorializing Congress to that effect. The Sex or the statue or Liberty.? The dreadful oomplalnt la made by the Woman Suffrage Convention that the are?, tion of a statue of Liberty ou Bedioe'a Island would be an insult, because It la proposed "to represent Freedom aa a majestic fena"le form In a state where not a woman la free." Very well, Miaa Susan and Mra. Blake. Aa tbe legialature la unlikely to extend tiie electoral franchise, the only way to avoid this Inconsistency is to make tbe statue of Liberty a man.?[.V. T Herald. Don't Want to re the Custodian or the Beechee Secret?Rev. Wm. M. Tay lor. of the Broad way Tabernacle, New York, declines the proposal tbat he should be pres ent at an interview with Beecher and Bowen to listen to their statements and be bound to secreay, except under compulsion of a court of luatice. He cannot, hesaya, aee any ob ject to be gained by being made tbe "aafe" in which the secrets are to be looked up, while, if It la expected be ahould expreaa some opinion, be cannot accept the respon sibility. A most diploraiiLB afpair occurred in tbe little town of Dahlgreu, Hamilton county, 111.. Friday night. A party of young men gaveJobn Sturman, recently married, a serenade. Sturman ordered the party off, but they not leaving at once he fired into them with a gun, killing Willis Lowery and wounding Bud Burton and Frank Taylor. All tne parties are highly respectable, young Sturman being a eon of Jndge Sturman, one of the most prominent cltlzans of the county. Cowardly Cut Throats?Capt. B. H. Largs ton, Deputy U. S.

The regulation requiring a flity at note or a silver half dollar for aid miss ton now been done away with, and hereafter arty cents of any kind arlll admit a visitor. ? mass meeting was bald Saturday evsning in Philadelphia, which adopted reaotutloas against closing the exhibition on Suaday. ?7*Tramps are sat ta work at Norwich, Cv, ant since the adoption of this systaaa bey do not flock UU than Riddle to Btalae. Mr. A. O. Riddle, of this city, Is out with ft reply to the allusion made by ex-Speaker Blaine to J. W. Knowlton, a deceased news paper correspond en t, and a son-in-law of Mr. Riddle. The latter gives a letter from General H. V. Boynton, in which General B. says of Knowlton that he erjoyed a high reputation among his associates as a man of unblemished honor, was a most careful and exact correspondent, and daring Gen eral B.'? dally and close association with Mm, nothing was ever brought to his atten tion at variance with that reputation. At one time Mr. KDowlton told him, General Boyuton. that be was a law studeat In the off ce of Stewart & Riddle; that one night he wa? sitting In the general room of that offl-*e when Mr. Blaine called and asked to see Mr. Stewart, who was In his private room. He pa*se<l into that room and remained there with Stewart for about aa hour, when Stew art came out of the room with what proved to be twenty-five 81,000 construction bonds of the Union Pacific railroad, eastern divi sion, and asked Mr. Knowlton to sign them, as witness, to a transfer. This Mr. Knowl ton did, ?nd Stewart took the bonds back into the room where Mr. Blaine was, and In a few moments the latter passed out. Mr. Knowlton did not claim to have seen these bonds delivered to Mr. Blaine, or to have any other knowledge of the transaction than that recited above. After this conversation General B. and Mr. Knowlton found that it bad been heard In part by Mr. Gibson, of the New York Sun, then in the f ront office; aud Mr. Knowlton said to Gen. Boynton that he had charged him In the most emphatic man ner cot to use It; and bedld not at that time. The next day after Stewart's arraignment In the House as a contumacious witness, an lccorrect version of Knowltonli statement appeared in the New York Sun. which, after referring to reports io circulation concerning alleged relations between Mr. Blalue and Mr. Stewart, continued: "A clerk In Stew art sofflce tens a circumstantial story about a visit a certain gentleman paid to Stewart's office late one night, and how 821,000 in guar anteed bonds of the Kansas Pacific road passed from Stewart's hands to the certain gentleman aforesaid." NVneu th's dispatch returned, Mr. Knowlton was exceedingly surprised and aunoycJ, and consulted me at length In regard to the matter. Gen. B. ad vised him to print the very exact statement he bad previously given him. He replied, that under no circumstances could he do this, ar.d that he must at all hazards avoid being railed before tha committee In regard to it, for, in the first placc, he bad a friendly regard for Mr. Blaine, and admired blm greatly as a politician, and he would not appear against him- In the second place, bis associations In Washington aud those of bis family, aside from his newspaper friends, were chiefly with the bar of the District, and that his ap proaching marriage into Mr. Riddle's own family would largely extend his associations in the same direction. As what be bad done and seen in the ofilceof Stewart 4 Riddle took place under the privileges and confidences which attach to a lawyer's office, he was unwilling to subject bis friends or himself to the criticisms which would follow him lu the circles wbera they moved, If he ware held up to them as one who bad attacked a public man by violating the confidences of a law office. Ai\er examining the despatch in the Sim, It was fourd that, strictly speaking, it con tained several errors, and Mr. .Kaowlton hen decidcd to go directly to Mr. Gibson and assure him of the incorrectness of his dispatch, and say that, if oalled upon, be should be oblige^ to testify to that efl^ct. Subsequently he, informed me that Mr. Blaine had sent for him, aud thai Mr. Blaine bad further sought to convince him that It was his cousin, Gen. Thomas Ewing, jr., who had legal relations with Stewart, who was in the office with 8tewart on the night In question. Mr. Knowlton said to me in relation to this that, while ue was absolutely certain that It was not a case of mistaken Uentlty, and that mere was a tacit under standing between bimself aud Mr. Blalue ihat it was not, yet in view of the great em barrassment that would certainly come both to himself and Mr. Blaine, If he should tes tify before the committee without qualifica Mon, he would be gl vl, If possible, to let the matter pas 4 there, if he wassummone J. iipm any declaration which Mr. Blalue shoal 1 make that it was a mistake in identity Mr. Knowlton further took active means ?o stop the circulation of the story by assur ing several other correspondents that Mr. Gibson's special was rot correct, aod tha' he shojld be obliged to so testify if called , before lhe con mlttee. As a result of his efforts the story gained no circulation In the press. Mr. Knowlton, however, continue! greatly disturbed over the matter, fearing that If summoned be might be too strictly, questioned In regarltg hl?.T6al conviction regarding; Ihfe tnalter of identity, and so long as there was any probability that the cottitolttee would take up the matter he kept close watch for all indications that tbey would do to, and had his baggage packed for quite a time in order that he might leave the city, and, if necessary, go to Canada to avoid testifying, because, as be declared, if put under oath and questioned closely, he would be obllgri to swear with positiveness that it was Mr. Blaine who visited Stewart's office under the circum stances already related. Io several subse quent conversations Mr. Knowlton went overtbis ground, always affirming the cor rectness or bis statement regarding the night visit to 8tewart, end never, under any cir cumstances, alluding to it as the transac tion which was charged and afterward re tracted in the New York Trib>me of Septem ber or October, 1872. ?.JJ. General R- D. Mussey writes Mr. Riddle a letter, under date of May 8,1876, saying that be was a student with Knowlton in Riddle's office; that he remembers that Blaine was there once, but don't remember the eircum stances; and that Knowlton told him the same story he told General Boynton. Mr. H. L. Brldgman, formerly a Washington correspondent, writes Mr.Blddle, under date of May 4th last, to say that Knowlton also told him the same story be told General Boynton. Mr. Riddle contends that Knowlton's ver sion of the story, as told to General Boynton and others, was correct, and says that though true it does not follow that the bonds were transferred to Blaine or that Stewart deliv ered them to him. Stewart says be did not, aDd Mr. Riddle does Dot intimate that bis is the position of a man wae has received a woman's favors, and feels bound to protect her name by a denial of her frailty, nor does he comment upon the conclaslve nature and value of such evidence. Mr. Riddle gives Stewart's letter to the president of the Union Pacific Rallroid C >m pany, dated April 23, 18?8, In which James jUatne figures an holding fifteen construction bonds, and asks: "Who is this James Blaine? In the absenceof anything I have yet seen, I think he was the man who received the twecty-five construction bonds, and the holder of Stewart's order for their equiva lents in land-grant bonds, mentioned in Stewart's order to Ewlog, and this In the face or the stipulation In reference to J. E. Blaine's fifteen bonds." Mr. Riddle gives several reasons why be believes the James Blaine was really J. G. Blaine, one being that 8tewart in subse quently giving a list of those who had re oelved bonds omitted the "James," writing simply "Blaine." He says: "This omission was by design?purposely made, without a word or explanation then and none now, with all the Intervening time in which to invent one. It was to serve some purpose, shield some person, gain some point desired by both parties to the suit. I quote from a oarefully prepared oopy of Stewart's deposi tion in an abetract mod on the trial of said ease in 1872, at Topeka, In the preeeuoe or the original. In answer to cro^s-Interrogatory 178 he said: ??I further state.astndlreet ex amination, that the president of the defend ant, grljUCTp. Perry. amjJU ?mnsei, Hon. John P. Utter, h*v8 botn repeatedly ?taitd to mi, and 1 teller* Io oUiere. mat 1 was entitled to my hoods sod ought to re eel ?e them whenever I should be able to pro dooe the said series B bonds. Among others, I am Informed and believe that Mr. Usher made that statement to Mr. Alexander Hav and Hon. James Blaine In Washington." On turning to the record, copied from she same paper three yoars later. I find the Hon. James Blaine changed to the Hon. James Lane?not jameaHTXane. There seems no ecd to the so ?*lled mlrtntow in thta name.

Among all the letter* and statements taken fry Mr. Blaine to disprove his connection with this bend story, or all living men, why has he not produced a statement or this John E. Blaine? He knows bow many bonds he received, and when, and whether ha is tbe Jas. Blaine of Stewart's letter. In a seclud ed part of bean ti To 1 Oak Hlli is the solitary grave of James W. K cowl ton.

For a second time during tbe sessiou of the General Conferer.ee or the M. E. Church at the Arsdemy of Music has tbe soene been one which it could hardly seem possible would ever occur In a body of a religious character. The trouble was tbe Western Hook Concern again, and tbe attempt made by Dr. Lanahan to fasten the source of the memorial, charging it with bankruptcy. Ac., presented a week ago by members of the Baltimore Conference, upon statements made by Dr. Nelson, one of the New York book agents, before a committee of the Balti more Conference. Dr. Nflaon emphatically denied tbe charge, and there the matter rests for the present. Rev. Dr. W. H. Hunter, of Central Illinois, acting chairman of the book con cern, requested a suspension of tbe rules for tbe presentation of tbe report of tbat committee touching the memorial referred to them in regard to tue alleged insolvency of the Western Hook Concern. Tbe rules were suspended unanimously and great In terest was Ehown for a bearing of the result of the Investigation or the ootnmiiiee. Tbe secretary read the report, which closed with the following: ItesolxeU, That tbe assertion of the memorialists that tbe Western Book Concern Is " practically Insolvent," and is "in an unsound, dangerous and bankrupt condition," is both unjust and untrue, and entitled to no consideration by the public; and that any member of the M. E. Church who was instrumental in its clandestine publication in the newspapers deserves the censure of this (General Conference and tbe condemnation of every true friend of the church. AW KXCITIHG EC-IKE. A t the close of the reading of tills report, whlth was received with a tremendous burst of applause, Dr. Hunter moved its adoption, and a hundred voices seconded the same. At least a dozen delegates rose in an Instant to express their feelings on the subject, but Rev. Granville Moody, of Cincinnati, with bis usual success, was tbe first to obtain re cognition of the chairman. He said: These memorialists, In my opinion, are mere sinned against than sinning. If they had looked through their own eyes Instead of through those of another, they would have seen things in adifferent light, and I think some Inspiration has led them on. Rev. Dr. Lanahan gained the flior, and said: "I do not desire to prolong this discus sion or to go again into the history of this memorlai, but the remarks made by Dr. Moody make It obligatory upon me to go beyond what I originally Intended. When ever a book concern is touched a volcano breaks forth. For three years I was perse cuted for my expose of the swindling in the New York house." Cries of "Order!" ''Order!" accompanied by very audible hisses, arose at these re marks,and the chair ruled that Dr. Lanahan must confine his remarks to the subject of the report before them for adoption. Dr. Lanahan.?I was only illustrating. 'Laughter.} He continued: Dr. Moo-ly sees lit to compliment these memorialists. He thinks some Inspiration has led them on. I corroborate hit belief, and think I can show where this Inspiration began. Hcthenwent on to charge Dr. Nelson and Dr. Phillips, of tbe New York Book Concern, with being "tbe sonrce of inspiration." Rev. Dr. R. Nelson, of the firm of Nelson A Phillips, the New York agents, said: Tne untruthful and apparently damaging decla ration* made touching myself, by Dr Lana han, would give me some solicitude If they ? ame from any reliable source; but coming as they do fiom a man who is koown as an ?'accuser of the brethren," I care little for them. After further debate, Rev. Dr. J. P. New man moved, under a suspension of the rules of order, tbat as, be said, a discrepancy ap peared between the statements of the me morialists and the statements of Mr Xelfon, a committee of five be appointed to investigate the same. Rev. Dr. W. H. Oltn.of Wyoming, said: I suggest that we proceed about our own bus lncss and not go off on an exploring expedi tion after investigations. [Applause ] This disease is a little oontaglous, especially in the latitude from which the brother comes who makes the motion, and I am afraid he is affected by It. [Laughter.] On motion of Rev. B. I. Ives, Dr. Newman's resolution for the appointment of a commit tee waa laid on the table amid great ap plause. Rev. Dr. Nelson said be desired to express a willingness to appear before the commit tee of the Baltimore conference, and that be bad made no charge of misrepresentation, but of misunderstanding.?I Baltimore Ga zette, 15th. THE CtlBBILAHD AMD PRNW8YLVAHIA Railroad.?The Cumberland Civilian of Saturday says: Yesterday Messrs. Walsh and Cox, counsel for the American Coal Company, filed a bill against the Consolida tion Coal Company to enjoin the Consolida Uon Coal Company or the Cumberland and Pennsylvania Railroad Company from charging a higher rate of freight than that allowed by the amendment to Its charter as made by tbe late Legislature. The oourt has ordered tbe Consolidation Coal Company to show causa by the 30th of May why the in junction should not be granted, with per mission to take testimony previous to that date. The same paper says: Tbe American Coal Company bas resumed shipments by canal, and yesterday sent out a number of boats, as will be seen by our canal trade statement. We bope there may be a oontlnued increase in shipments, but under tbe best circum stances we cannot expect as heavy a trade a* laat year, since the demand bas largely :alien off. ?
