SSt^sss Tisr^X'sn^ as stair stfssas sgr, taia report, bat the principal actor In ot ben of wbicb a fraudulent conversion of the funds to his own private use is one, and for which be merit* and should receive punishment. He, It appears, was actually turned looee upon the rands and assets of the bank with out even being bonded, though perhaps that devoted Institution was not much be worse off for that, seeing that to nearly all cases where the trustees had taken bonds of their officers and agents they proved either to be Informal, subject to tome technical objection or otherwise worthless wh< n the time came, ?s It did come in several Instances, to put tbrm In suit on account of the delinquencies of their makers. In the case of the A. C. Bradley transaction, ten, he and ?*ie presi dent./. W. Alvord, were parties toaa st ?ted transfer of property held by the as security for a debt of some #10000 arxl tome few hundreds of accrued intereit, wfceieby the bark wai treated to a lot o; notes given by Bradley and payable one gw.->. three, four, and live years aiter date, whilst the vender, (or rather his princlpa1, for be was merely agent) A. R. Shepherd, entered at o> ee into the erjoyraent of an annual income of ?1,200 lrom tbe rent of the property to the Post Office department What Is still mire singular the contract ot lease was made be tween Bradley and the depart meat tea days before he obtained a transfer of the property from the aforementioned officers of the bank, and the whole was done for the special bene fit, delectation and behalf of Sliephew who nevertheless Is not seen In the transaction. Not until the processes of a court of Justice were retorted to by the original owner, one Mrs. Louisa McGban. to set aside the who?e proceeding tor fraud, and permission given ber to redeem the property by paying the back, did the fket herein detailed come to the surface and to the light of day. For such an Inequitable, unjust, and to the bank In jurious disposition of Its assets It Is hard to believe there was no consideration given? but allowing Alvord and SUckney the full benefit of the presumption of law In favor of Innocence. It shows them to be wholly un worthy the high trust they held, and Is a striking example of the actings and doings -whereby the credit of the bank was destroyed and Its depositors (plundered and ruined. In the Juan Boyle business too, ?le same Mr. Bttckney and Mr. Leipold, one of the present commUsloners, acted a part the reason for which are best understood by themselves, but one resulting to a total lose both to the bank and Its debtor Boyle.I though the evidence establishes the fact that Boyle was offered a credit of ftil.OOO on his liabilities, (Leipold to take the property consisting of certain houses on M street, in the city of Washing ton), ard that subsequent sales even uader the prevailing depression and shrinkage in values proved that they were worth under each unfavorable conditions nearly the wbo'e amount for which they were encumbere i. Very soon after this negotiation failed, toe property was sold under a deed of trust which StlcKuey had given upon It, while holding from Boyle fbr the benetlt of the bank, and be, 8tlckney, bought it to for bimhelf at the price of ?11.000, there being no one present to protect the bank, and little or no competition among the bidders. (See Bojle's testimony given In the presence of Btickney and Leipold, and not contradicted In any material point of fact as above reci ted.) There were also a great many small ?peculations by which toe bank was drained of its funds, the aggregate of which as far as ean yet be ascertained amounts to the sum of * This sum Is in part represented by checks and drafts without collateral of any kind-In part by nothing but the empty coffers of the bask, and are neither more nor less than a steal perpetrated ou the bank by the officers or others through their conni vance. Add to these forgery, as in the case of Boston, teller of the Washington bnr <?**, and the way Uiefieedmen's money went Is nit difficult of comprehension. And now taking a retrospective glance over the events of the last ten years, to which this Freed rein's bank looms up conspicuously, we are led ta believe that no race, or kindred among all the generations of men have so thoroughly sounded the deptns of the philosophy ex. pressed in the prayer, Save me from my frlsnds, as those ?? persons lately ueld to slavery at the south,"?a people over whom more crocodile tears have been shed, on wbcm more imposition practiced and /ur whom less real sympathy felt by their pro fessed friends than any other known to his tory?a people almost littera'y stabbed nuier the fifth rib with a hug and the salutation, "How is it with yoa to day, my brother?"' In regard to this bank the grossest deception was pra> Used upon them. Many were told it was a government Institution, and its solvency and safety guaranteed by the United States. Missionaries, of whom the chief was Alvord, perambulated the south, mixing religion, politics, education, and teactung the blacks bow to toil and to save and then trust their bard earned savings to Alvord and his as sociates to Invest for them, not until, how ever, they bad levied toll for their servlses In bestowing such inestimable benefits, and lor their disinterested labors and sacrifices. Full of gratitude to the government for their emancipation, the negroes were easily apprcacheu by, and gave unheeding cred ence to, any adventurer wbo declared him self bis friend and professed a desire to aid his moral intellectual and so cial elevation, provided he belonged to the party of the administration. He believed and was deceived,?trusted and wis be trayed. Taught to his ruin and that of the whites among whom he lives and moves and has his being, and between whom and him self there most be mutual trust and confi dence before prosperity can be restored to bis section, to bate and distrust "the old master classes," he is now derided by bis old friends for bis credulity, (see Sanders How ell's statement about a conversation with Leipold,) and told that those who dragged him out of slavery have by that one act can celed every obligation to deal with htm 00 principles of common honesty. I'pon no one of the originators and trustees or the bank did so great a responsibility rest as upon J. W. Alvord; but yet he permitted all the mis doings described to this report to go from year to year without any vigorous protest or effort to correct them; and, so far from giving warning to those who had so trusted The concern through his persuasion, he helped to keep up the delusion by praising it?eiilaaglng upon Its beuefits?glviug as surance of its stability, ami soliciting in crease of deposi tors and deposl is. When the ruto of the Institution was already past rem edy, an amendment to the cnarter was ob tained, to 1KT4, with provisions limiting the amount to be loaned to any one person, and making any emt>eszlement or misuse of tb" funds by officers or agents a criminal ot fence. This should have been done at the beginning. Sow, it was like lock ing the stable door after the horse wss stolen?It neither saved the prop erty or caught the thief. It was a thin veil to the plunge into actual bankruptcy, and tte banding the defunct remains of the once vaunted "Freedmen's Savings and Trust Company" to the undertakers?the Commis sioners to c!ose op Its affalrs-.which speedily followed the enactment. Having Incident ally pointed to the parties chiefly responsi ble tor the final catastrophe, whilst describ ing the causes which led to It, your commit tee have as far aa practicable and f jr the present discharged tae duty assigned to them, snd respectfully submit the ,-esult to the consideration of the House without far ther recommendation than that already em bodied in the pending bill to amend the legislation of 1*74 to regard to the Commis sioners. W bether It will be necessary to sub mit any report upon the condition and man agement of the bank since it went Into liquidation Is reserved for future considera tion. I Signed 1 -B B.

The Committee on the Expenditures of the Interior department held a brief session this morning, and heard tbe testimony of Sur geon General Barnes In favor of Dr. Nichols' management of tbe lT. 8. Insane asylum. He always fonnd the building clean and well attended to. Tbe laundry was tbe best ap para ton possible. He thought tbe large farm attached to tbe asylum was necessary. Tbongbt tbat It would be very bad to make any obange in regard to tbe management and system of tbe asylam. He considered Dr. Nichols peculiarly fitted for the position from bis long experience. Gen. Barnes was cross-examined briefly by Mr. Mutchler, the chairman of tbe com mittee. He said he never saw any vermin on the patients, and never got any on blm while going through the asylum as one of tbe board of visitors. He did not think it possible for vermin to breed from dirt. Or. Nicho's is looked to for the management of tbe farm as well as the any 1 am; to make all the purchases, Ac. Thought It was done as well now by Dr. Nichols as any three men could attend to It. The committee then adjourned, with tbe understanding that tbeotber members of tne board of visitors will be examined to-mor row. AN Interesting Law Point?In the ' Supreme Court of the District, in General Term, yesterday, an interesting case was I amued and submitted. An action tD recover : ?ir,0 having been brought before Justice i Hyde, by Fitzgerald against D?ism?u, the i plaintiff askeJ lor a trial by Jury, an i on be 1 ig empanelled tbe case was given to them, neither party having noted an exception. 1 The jury fonnd a verdict for S50 for plain ? t'.tT, and defendant prayed an appeal, which ' was refuspd by the jastlce on the ground that an appeal wonld not lie from a Jus I t ce's J id* ment. based upon the verdict of a jury. Tne defendant sned out a writ of cer tiorari, which w as called up lu the Circuit Court. On motion to dismiss tne writ, Jndge Cartter, holding the Circuit Court, declined to decide the question involved, and certified i the cause to the General Term. The plaintiff ! contends tbat the law does not authorize an I appeal from a judgment entered In a jus ' tlce's court, upon the verdict of a jury; for j by tbe several acts of Con grew in force in this District a justice of the p?ace has Jurls I diction to try the issues of law and fact, where the sum In controversy does not ex ceed ?10n. By tbe same acts, either party to ? toe cause can demand a jury, to whom the Issues must be exclusively submitted, en tirely Independent of the Justice, and tbe act of the justice In entering judgments is pnrely ministerial, and therefore not appeal- | able. Also, that the seventh ameudmeut to the Constitution of the United States de clares that, In snlts at common law, no fact tr'ed by a Jury shall be reexamined In any other way than according to the rules of the i common law, and sections 774, 775,776 and 1,027 of the Revised Statutes create no gteater right to an appeal than that which existed under the act of March 1,18U. Mr. H. B. Moulton appeared for the plaintiff, and Mr. Thompson for defendant. The D. C. Oamr Protective Associa tion met last night, Col. J. O. P. Burnslde in the chair and Mr. M. A.Tappan secretary. Tbe chair stated that he had, with other members of the committee on securing grounds, visited several places In the suburbs of the city. In prospecting for the proper srot, and the offer made by Major Brltion, ot Bright wood, seemed to be the beat ooe, and ' It was probable the committee would accept It. They were not, however, ready to report, and asked for further time, which was granted. Tbe committee on gun trial re ported that arrangements bad been made for Elgeon matches, gun practice and other ex lbltions. Some sixteen entries bail been made for tbe trial of breech-loaders and rifle match, also for tbe bench show of dogs. ? A Popular Mote The opening of Mi* h?rney's new Hat and Sboe Store in South Washington Is a decided convenience to res idents in tbat part of the city. His stosk is new and well selected, and as he proposes to sell as cheap as anyone in the trade, his enterprise is almost certain to be a sucoess. The great R4CE day of the meetings'. !

The national greenback convention of Indianapolis concluded its labors yesterday i by the nomination of Peter Cooper, of New York, for President, and Newton Bcolh, of California, for Vice President, as state 1 in ! The Star. The platform advocates the repeal of tbe resumption act, the issue of United States legal-tender currency, con vertible at pleasure Into government bonds, bearing low Interest; the extinction of bank paper, no further Issue of gold bonds for foreign markets, no sale of bonds to buy sil ver tobensedas a substitute for fractional currency, "which, although well calculated to enrich owrers of slver mines yet in opera tion, will Btill further oppress in taxation an already over-burdened people.'i. A resolu tion sgalnbt railroad subsidies was also adopted. KENTI CKY REPUBLICANS POR BRISTOW. Tbe Kentucky republican convention at Louisville was presided over by Hon. James Speed, Attorney General under Lincoln The usual republican platform was adopted together with a resolution declaring that "as Kentucky gave Abraham Lincoln to bis country and to mankind for the great work ; performed by him, she now presents Benja i mln H. Bristow to complete the correction of Ills ever incident to war." The resolution 1 was received amid shouting and tossing o ; bats In the air. Nospeclal Instructions were ; Klven, however. Tbe delegates at large are { John M. Harlan,W. C. Geodloe.W. H.Wads worth and Robert Boyd. Twenty district ! delegates were also chosen. All are for I P.rlatow. KANSAS DEMOCRATS POR HENDRICKS AND SOFT MONEY. The democratic state convention met at Topeka, Kansas, yesterday. The committee on resolutions reported tbat no banks of issue should be authorized by the United States or the state authorities; tbat the gov ernment should supply the paper money needed, in the shape of greenbacks; demand the Immediate repeal of the act providing for tbe resumption of specie payment, and Instructs tbe delegates to vote for Hendricks j at St. Louis. No subject whatever is touched upon in tbe platform but financial. At 11 p. m. a vigorous fight was being made against the platform and instructing tbe delegates I for Hendricks, but the resolutions would be carried, it was thought, by over a three j fourths vote. MR. BLAINE ENDORSED IN MAINE. The republican convention of the third/ Maine district (Mr. Blaine's) yesterday was marked by strong resolutions endorsing Mr. I Klalne, and also by the speech of Hon. Mr. Stearns, In which, as a fellow-townsman for tbe past twenty two years, he reviewed bis business career, and particularly defended blm from the charge of having besome sud denly rich since entering Congress, claiming that In 186$, when elected to Congress, Mr. Blaine In business had accumulated a for tune of *75,000, and that his gatns since that time have been greatly exaggerated, and have been far less than other men of ordi nary business capacity had acquired by le gitimate investment. DELAWARE POR BLAINE. Tbe Delaware republicans chose a delega. lion Instructed to support Mr. Blaine so long as there is any chance of nis nomina : tlon. The New York Printers' htrikb Scc cihsKCL?The Typographical Union gained a decided victory yesterday In their strike against a reduction of wages. Lange, Little A Co.. of No. 10 Astor place, one of tbe larg est Arms whose men are on strike, seat a communication to President Dalton yester day containing an agreement to pay tbe rates established by the union. As the. firm employs 150 men tbe union feels confident that the strike will now be ended in its fa vor. The cause of Lange, Little & Co-'s con cession to the Union was the Inability of the flrm to get ont of the city Directories which It is to print. It Is understood that tbe firm agreed to pay the Union prices temporarily, In order to Insure the early publication of tbe work; but this concession, it Is claimed, is only on the Directory. Tbe Executive Com mittee of the employers say that It la utterly impossible to pay tbe old Union ratea lu these depressed times, and are certain that the journeymen themselves have given up all idea of trying to so force their old scale of prices In future? f JT.
