E Om it , Ht-n , K'htor Is fv Ier: Dear Kir: 1 feel obliged to call your atten tion to an editorial In the Lsru! r of May 0 Id whir h jcu defend Mr. Blaine Irom toe PUttit LenUr. In the zeal of yonr defense you, too, dls egaid tbe dead, and seem to have forgot tei at least one of his survivors, who should t>e spared encn a blow at your hauls. I do Lot refer to myself. As jour paper Is daily read by so many of my dearest friends, fie only favor 1 can re ceive at your hands Is to ask an lusertioa or this note. You say that J. W. Knowlton told Mr. Gibson "that he had seen Mr. Stewart hand a bundle of bonds to Mr. Blaluo la the offi ;e of Stewart & Kiddle." I assure you this is utterly false. Knowl ton did not say this to Gibson, nor has Gib son ever said he lid. No one but the Lcxlet ever so said. Gibson overheard some part of private conversation betweau Knowlton and Boynton In the fall of 1372. from which he coined his falsehood la the 8i'n of Febru ary 1.1?73. This is the tale which Knowlton contradicted. As ho did uot tell, so be never retracted It. As Gibson's article referred to him, he could but deny It, and did aid to suppress It. This la the story lie denied the authorship of to Blaine, and no other. MacFarland did not Introduce Knowlton to Blaine on that occasion, nor did he ac company him. I have already proved that Blaine himself said It was another man, whose name I can give. Blaine and Knowl ton were then well acquainted, and K had been Invited to his bouse long before. I have also proved that Blaine wai at the office of Stewart & Kiddie while Knowlton was there. To fix his charge of false accusation upon Knowlton, Mr. Blaine uses the mouths of others, no one of whom was or Is a friend of Knowlton. The deceased did not tell and retract a damaging story upon Mr. Blaine. What be did bay, 1 am prepared to show, and Mr. Blaine will continue to live under what ever shadow it may cast upon him. I hold Mr. Blaine responsible for stories he pro cured and published. The public will soon have an opportunity to judge of the "embarrassing position" of the principal parties to this controversy. Very sincerely yonra, A. G. Kiddle. MC'Kee and Magcire.?In the U. S. cir cuit court at St. Louis, yesterday, District Attorney Dyer called the attention of the court to the effect that the lime for a stay of execution of sentences In the cases of Con. Masulre and Wm. McKeehal expired. He read a telegram from Magtiire, stating that tbe latter had missed connection at Rich mond, ind., Tuesday night, while on his way home from Washington, but would arrive yesterday (Wednesday) afternoon Julge Treat etated that It was not necessary either party should be present In court, and or deted that commitments for both persons be made out and placed In the hands of the U. P. marshal. On the arrival of Miguire yesterday afternoon, both he and McKee were taken In custody. Thoy were spar.^ l the humiliation of being escorted through the streets to the Jail by the marshal or ["other officer, and were permitted to go un attended except by one or two intimate friends. Counterfeit Railroad Tickets?Jef ferson A. Brolaski, a clerk In the Illinois and Ht. Louis Bridge Company, bas been arrest ed at St. Louis for uttering counterfeit rail road tickets on northern and eastern lines. One Edwin M. Baker Is Implicated, but has eluded arrest. In their room was found dies, plates, and stamping machines, and ?10.000 wortb of bogus coupon tickets from Lawrence, Kansas, to New York, over the Missouri, Pacific, Chicago and Alton, Lake Shore and Michigan Southern and Erie roads, and from Topeka, Kansas, to Phila delphia, over the Atchison, Topeka and San ta Fe, Missouri Pacific, Ohio and Mississip pi, Little Miami, Columbus and Pittsburg and Pennsylvania roads.

A Suicidb Sensation at the Cbnten nial?Tbe first sensation at the Centennial grounds occurred yesterday in the shape of an attempted suicide by poison on the part of a woman who gave her name as Mrs. Bo gardus, and claimed to be tbe wire of one of the Centennial guards on duty near the spot. Her actions were observed, however, and prompt medical skill prevented the consum mation of her rash purpose. She states she Is from Auburn, N.

Mr Morton submitted a resolution In structing the select committee on Mississip pi affairs to Investigate the alleged killlngof people near the Mississippi and Louisiana *lr ?, He read a dispatch received by Gov. ke.logg late last night from his private sec retary to the effect that late arrivals from Feliciana reported a horrible conditlo-i of !?! .**60 negroes were reported killed ar,(i 400 white men were underarms; and also ?i f*.,0 *r ' eta'ls of the outrages. The resolution was then adopted. ??. . Tburman cal'ed up the House bill au thorizing the appointment of receivers ofna tional banks, and for other purposes: which was variously amended. Mr. Sherman explained that the main ob ject of the bill was to extend the cases in which receivers may be appointed. The bill had been very carefully prepared at the of fice of the controller of the currency. The bill was passed. Mr. Sargent, from the Committee on Na K?a.i ^,ralrf; reP?rted adversely on Senate 'V.1, which was placed on the calendar with the adverse report. r..M.r Wadleigh, from the Committee on Ualms. reported favorably bill for the relief of Nathaniel P Harvey, of -jleorgla. Legislative and executive business wa? tl ea suspended, and the Senate, with closed doors, proceeded to consider the articles of Imp* achment agalrst W. W. Belknap. HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES. The Speaker pro tem laid before the House a communication from Hon. George M. 4<'amp. Clerk of the House, in which he quot's an extract telegraphed from Wash tl-U?M ,0 tllC ^'tlicago ^'l'cr-Ocean statin? MK ADAMS IS TTTE XFXT MA* TO BE IS VE8TIOATED, ard charging him with having sold h's ratroi.a^e for sums ranging from *1.10 to f "? Mr. Adams then says that he regrots o intrude this matter npon the House, hut ii affects his honor as a man and his con drct as au officer, ai.d le^t silence shoali bf> wrongfully construed. he asks the House to order an Immediate investigation, and de sires ell who profe?s to have proof of the cbanremay be summoned to appear i'i or dertbat the truth or falsity of tbechargfc may he ascertained. He would add that a'l > ich charts are Infamous slanders, ttiere being rot a shadow of foundation on which to fouud them. Mr. Brown i Ky.) offered a resolut'oT di recting the Committee on R iles to invent I gate the matter. He said he had no doubt the Hf u'e would accede to the r^-ou^st for a^ Investigation. Tbls scandal had heen spread all over the land, aDd It was due to the C erk that It should be investigated. He had ki own Mr. Adams for years, and he ha* alwavs ej Jcved tbe confidence of those who ki.ew him. He believed Mr. Adams to be a eer tleman of Integrity arid honor, and that bHief was entertained by all his friends. Mr Adams was for eight years a member on tbls llcor. and ecjojed the confidence of all. and he wonld come ont of this inquiry without a st adow on his name. Malignity has gone on Its hunt along the gutters, hoping to kook up acme filth against this man. Mr. Adam* defies his accusers and demands the proof, so that the instigator of the slauder may staod cordcmr.ed and despised before the country. Mr Banks (Mass ) hoped the matter would not be referred to the Committee on Rules The Speaker, as well as tbe Speaker pro /em were members of that committee,end it was manifestly improper that they should Inves titrate an oilicer of the House. He suggested the reference to a special committee of five. Mr. Brown (Ky.) accepted the suggestion, but hoped nodemocrat from Kentucky would be placed on the committee. Tne resolution was then adopted. THE GOVERNMENT PRINTING. . The regular order having been demanded, the Speaker said that was the report submit ted yesterday by Mr. 8lngletou, from the Committee on Printing. m#Th? Speaker decided a point of order that Mr. 8iDgleton bad the right to report this resolution at tbls time. He reviewed the decisions of ex-Speakers Winthropand Cobb on the like subject, and said tbe committee In this case had a right to report. If a point had been made on Saturday that the reaolu tions contained new legislation It would have held good, but the point was not made at that time. The resolutions submitted by the commit tee were then read. They request the Com mittee on Appropriations to inquire into the propriety of inserting sections in the sundry civil appropriation bill to change the mode or appointing the public printer; regulating the manner of printing, and making a con tract with Franklin Rives for printing the Congressional Record for sIe years. Mr. Randall (Pa.) objected to Incorporat ing a contract In general legislation. He wanted the subject thrown open to competi tion, and he would therefore offer an amend ment providing that the printing of the liccortl for tbe second session of the Forty fourth Cor gre?s, as well as for future Con gresses, shall be by contract and subject to competition. Mr. Eailon (R I.) charged that the investi gation or tbe public printer had not been conducted with fairness. His enemies were permitted access to the committee room, acd he was not permitted to croas examine witnesses, a privilege that was accorded to U'e meanest criminal in the land. He be lieved Mr. Clapp was an hvieu man, and so far as he had a seat on tbls floor he would defend the rights of the humblest American citizen. .Mr,Vance (Ohio) denied the statement that Mr. Clapp had not had the opportunltv of cross-examination.

Tbe last information as to Sitting Bull's force places it at 1,500 lodges. This estimate would enable him to put at least 3,000 war riors Into the field. By t-ome this estimate Is considered large.

Wltb or without tbe act of KO the same objection would apply to tbe sur render of a person not duly declared extra ditable by tbe magisterial dixit of an Eng lish court having jurisdiction over extradit able offences. The came profess of law as is observed now was fo'lowed In tbe extradi tion fugitives bt-fore tbe law of 1^0 went upon ttie British statute books. Tbere Is no r?a?on for varying from wbat was custom tbeo. In pursuance o' tbl* llneol argument It Is nrged thst tbls must evidently be tbe rate, because heretofore do sucb exception lias been taken as is now Insisted upon by Secretary Fish, whose objection now is re garded as a mere technicality. More espe cial emphasis Is lal<t upon tbe provision of tbe treaty in rrgard to the extradition o lerrons charged with political crimes as to whom end Its provisions Secretary Fish makts much to do. But It Is argued If per sons charged with crime, and the ofletice rcay be political only. are to be extradited, who Is toiudge whether tbe crime U political or not. When Great Britain is to deliver up a prisoner shall it rot in sucb case be Great Britain and shall It not b?- through magistrates and critical examination of law. But Secretary Ki<*b seems to question If Dot to deny tne right of magisterial Inter ference and Jidgment, and claims tbat as Secretary of State he must decide. The po sition taken by Secretary Fish in tbls re spect is regarded as untenable. Sucb an attempt to construe the treaty would lose not only men but also tbe treaty. Emphasis is laid on a similar misstep wben Cut was Secretary of St*te. After a treaty bad been negotiated between Great Britain and tbe United Hie tee Cass objected to Its submis sion to Parliament, and thus lost tbe whole treaty. It Is further maintained tbat Great Britain, Id her disposition to serve tbe ends of law and justice, was disposed to extend tbe limitation of tbe class of cases to be com prehended In the treaty stipulations wltb this country so as to take in all crimes, while the interpretation of American offi cials has inclined them to them by technical analysis and dissection. The attitude of the United State* govern, ment and its recent treatment of the extra ? dltlon provisions are not regarded as fair or equitable to England nor within tbe provis ion of either an exact or liberal meaning and Interpretation of the treaty and Its pro visions. fOREIVX HEWN.
