The serious charge made against Speaker Kerr, that in 1866 be secured the appoint ment of an army officer, for which he took a pecuniary consideration, after careiJl in quiry through the bfst sources of lnforma tion within reach, develops the following in regard to the matter: ?The direct charge made is that A. P. Green, of New York city, was appointed a first lieutenant in the regular army In the summer of 136<>, on the recommendation or Speaker Kerr, atd that Kerr received *?i00 for Influencing President Johnson to make it. The state ment to corroborate the charge Is that G?een had served in the volunteer army daring the war as an officer in the 15th regiment of New York engineers. He was desirous aft?r its close to secure an appointment In the regu lar army. He came to Washington for the purpose and called on Lawrence Harney, a triend, who held a position as doorkeeper of the House of Representative*, having been appointed to the place ou the recommenda tion of Congressman Darling, of New York. Green made known his aspiration to Har ney. and the latter introduced the former to Mr. Keir, who then represented an Indiana district in Congress. Mr. Kerr interested himself in Green and secured his appoint ment. On the day of his nomination ne paid *r,oo to Harney, whlsh Harney says he paid to Mr. Kerr. The story of the charge and its statement fot out in this way. When Congressman idrllng was appointed appraiser of inerchan I dise In New York city he gave Harney a subordinate position In his office. A number of weeks ago Harney, in talking with some of bis associates in the office, made the state ment that he had at one time paid Speaker Kerr o to secure an army appointment. Some one to whom it was repeated male it known to the head of the appraiser's office. An Inquiry was made, when Harney told the story substantially as above stated. Green at tae time was iuN'ew York. He was sought ani corroborated Harney's statement, to the I e'.tc t that he paid ti e latter the mjoo, but he I knew nothlrg of how Harney disposed of It. I s on after the Committee on Expenditures in the War Department was made a;qualnt I ed with the facts. At the time the committee were first ap. I priced of the startling allegation, Mr. Kerr I w s absent, and it was deemed best not to p oceed with an Investigation until he I stould return. Upon his return, however, I ast week. Green and Harney were sumnun I e l to testify. Green came day before yes I terday. and went Informally before Messrs. I Cljmer, Danford and Bass, and in t ie the I statement that he had paid Harney ?600. I Harney has acknowledge! the service of his I subj o-na, but is sick in New York, aud has I nr.t vet reported. Yesterday Chairman Clymer went to Mr. I K^rrand made known to him the terrible accusation against him. He replied that he had heard of it some weeks before through I an anonymous letter, and had taken means to trace the source of the letter and the cir cumstances connected with it. The record of the War department shows that Green was appointed on the recotn* I meudatlon of Mr. Kerr. Among other pa pers ia a letter written by Mr. Kerr on the day of the confirmation of Green to the Sec retary of War, asking that "the commission of Lieutenant Green, Just confirmed, and who was appointed on his (Kerr's) recom mendation, be forwarded to Green's address, in New York city," which was given. The charge is made by a Baltimore paper that the republican members of the com mittee disclosed the testimony. This Is pos itively denied, and it Is stated on the other hand that it never would have gotten out at all had not Chairman Clymer told It to some of bis democratic friends, who In turn told It tootners. The friends of Mr. Kerr believe there Is no truth In the charge, and that If any money was paid In the matter it never reached him. Speaker Kerr declines to make any state ment at the present time concerning the ac cusation. His friends, however, say that Green came to blm highly recommended by personal friends in New York city, and that in the end Mr. Kerr will completely demol ish the charge.

TheCommittee on the Expenditures of tb9 Interior department resumed their lnvestiga tion of the management of the U. 8. Insane Asylum this morning. 1H?. ( fiaat atul C. MtrreU, assistant pbyai. elans of the any Him Were recalled ana gave additional Uslimony in regard to the treat of Dr- * ? I^utcr, of New York city, while at the asylum. Dr. Chaae said he never saw a more lnaane man than Dexter in hie life. Dexter Imagined he was a see. ond Chlrat. He always hal a Bible in his band, end said be intended to convert the whole ot New York city. He never com plained or any bad treatment on the part of the attendants. Dr. C. II. JHeMa, superintendent of the asylum, was recalled, and give additional testimony in regard to Dr. Dexter. He said Dr. J. E. Dexter, of this city, called upon bim and asked him to treat hie brother, Dr. B. F. Dexter. He thought that restraint was necessary to save his life. He insisted that Dr. J. E. Dexter should have the formal pa. pen made out. Drs. Dexter and Dare signed the certificate of Insanity. Dr. Darefex amined bim in regard to his sanity after he had been admitted to the asylum. Witness gave the case special supervision, having been requested by Dr. James E. Dexter to do so. Was cognizant of his dally treatment, and made tim many special visits. Had a distinct recollection or bearing Dr. Dexter complain of his detention, that his libera. tion was great deal more important than that of an ordinary man. Hal no recollec tion of any complaint of ill-treatment or blows, though he did not like to be forced to take medicine. In regard to the case of George Bontz, Dr. Nichols said be bad a distinct recollection of tbe date of bis admission to tbe asylum. Dr. Earle had c'aarge of tbe case. Tbe con dition of Bontz was that of a patient who had gradually declined from cerebral dis ease and an exhaustive form of decided mania. The watchman's book discloses tbe tact that the bed occupied by Bontz was not clean. Had no reason to believe that be was infested with vermin. Knew Jacob Thomp son when Secretary of the Interior, and do not believe that he would punish a man for making a complaint against tbe manage ment of the asylum. Had no recollection of any specific complaint of tbe treatment of Bontz. Mrs. Bontz Impressed bim as a very afli ctlonate mother, who could not be recon ciled to the fact that her sou waa Insane and was gradually declining, and not competent to observe the habits of a gentleman. Hi* want of nourishment had nothing to do with bis decline of fieah or strength, though wit ness did not mean to say that bis removal from the asylum was not beneficial to htm. Dr. Earle's standing as a medical man, and for the treatment of the insane, is secsnd to none la this country, and perhaps not to any body In the world. Cannot conceive It was possible that patient could get In the condi tion testified to by Mrs. Bontz. Tnlnks that there must be some misapprehension. Have known "old Jimmy" Price, the attendant, ??icce 1^0; first at the Bloomlngdale asylum, New York. Never knew a man more ho 1 est. Do not believe tbat he ever told an uu trnth. The colored man. Samuel Johnson, Dr. Nichols said, was admitted on December 13, 1KT0. He was in a state of high maniacal excitement: delirium tremens did not cover the case. He was put in one of the rooms in ihe "iron ward." Oa the Sunday morning following his admission he complained to witness while making his rounds that his feet hurt him. Examined them and found that they were frost bitten. Told him It was impossible for them to be frosted in the hos pital; that he bad not been long enough in the asylum to have them In tbat condition. He left the asylum February 14,71. Have ntver known that ice formed in a basin of standing water in any of the wards. By Mr. Mutcbler.?Has no clear recollec tion of the particular reason why Bontz was taken away from the asylum, except that his mother thought that he would Improve uncer her care. When he was brought oack he tad greatly Improved in straugth aod 3esh. It may be possible that he hal vermiu on him while at the asylum, but has no ra Collection of It. His assistant physician then, Dr. 8tevets, has since died. It is r.o dkely that witness saw him more than once a week, when he was making his Sunday ti.urs. Has no di.stirct recollection of the mother and sisters asking to be allowed to remain by the dying patient's bed side. The rule Is to allow friends of patients to attend during their dying hours. Mrs. Bontz was a very affectionate mother, and very frequent ly visited her son. Johnson was put la "the iron ward" be "ause he was considered a violent and dan <erous patient. He had mind enough a cou ple of davs after he was admitted to com plain of his treatment, and say that his feet osd been frosted. The committee then adjourned until Mon day morning. Tbe 164,000 Bond Investigation. ? TATt.MKJST OF MR. III. A I NX AHoOT THAT CALDWELL l'ACKAQE. Hon. Jamea U. Blaine made tbe following statement yesterday before tbe sub Commit tee of tbe House Judiciary, investigating wbat is known as the Blaine $61,000 boud transaction: It is entirely true that in tbe spring of Inl and Mr. Uoblu8on, I believe, gave the speci fied date from hia diary?be delivered to me in the Speaker's parlor a package. 1 should think tbat the pacMge was about is or jo inches long, and about 4 Inches in diameter. 1 received bis card while sitting in tbe Speaker's cbalr. As soon as it became con. venlent I went out and met htm In tbe Speaker's parlor. He banded me the pack, age, ard said: "This is a package which Mr. Caldwell banded me for you." The package was done up carelessly in brown paper, the ends tied down, and tied, I ahould say, al though I cannot tell precisely at this date of time, in a very loose manner. I chatted with bim a moment about the condition of tbe Fort Smith road, and somewhat about the coal lands in tbe Arkansas valley. He then wanted to see some member of the House, I have forgotten whom. I told him that be could have tbe privilege of the floor, and he went in with me. As I passed up to the cbalr I threw the bundle down oareleesly. It lay there until the House adjourned, and I took it down in the lower private room that I had. It lay there for mouths. It was a package or maj>s, some tbe descriptive pamphlets and some of tbe deecrlptive sketches?1 mean some of those made by la. | dlvlduals and not published-showing the coal fields in tbe Arkansas valley. It was considered at tbat time, by Mr. Caldwell and oihera, tbat there would be quite a specula tion in buying those lands, and tboee allotted off to show how much could be got in one body. As the sections were taken alternately, it was very bard to get a large tract together, and a very few thousand dollars >rouid buy a considerable quantity of them. 1 think tbe company ottered them at five or six dol lars an acre. This was sent to me as a pros pectus and a general setting forth of the merit* and virtue of tbe speculation. I did not give a great deal of attention to it. I had some compulations made as to the cost of hauling to the river; bow far It would be from the Arkansas river, and how mucb It would cost by tbe time it got by rail to tbe Mississippi. The result of tbe wbole thing was that I did not embark in it. That te all there waa in the whole story of tbe package. There waa nothing any more mysterious In it than if I should band thia book to tbe chairman. It was delivered In a crowd, carried into tbe Houm and thrown down without care, and it lay in my room with a miscellaneous lot of papers, probably for a ar, I referring to it every now and then. Mr. Robinson never delivered me a bond of the Fort Smith and Little Rock company, either in Washington or any other place. I d"sire to make tbat statement as broad as It can be made. In every shape and form, both inclusively and exclusively. Mr. Chairman, while I am here, I desire to repeat under oath, in relation to this entire ?CI,000 charge, the statement made by me on tbe floor of roe House, In all its parts, without mental rea ei v 1 tion or purpose of evasion, as tbe Iron clad oath says. Pkhsioxkd. ? Among the private t>ni? passed yesterday by the House was one placing Emerlck W. Hansell on the r?"i*?" list. Hanaell was formerly a messenger In tbe State department, and waa in attendance on Secretary Seward on the dIAi of tbe 14th of April, i860, and received anoh woanda at tbe haLda of the aeaassln Payne while en deavoring to save tbe life of the Secretary aa have since incapacitated bim from ordinary labor. Thb Pops waa 84 yeara old on the 13th lnat. Tbe Wth anniversary of hia priesthood occurred on the 12th of April, and if be lives until the 16th of Jane be will have occupied be pontifical throne Just thirty yeara. The K?? Charge Af?lut Blaise. The following la the correspondence In the New York Sun of to day, referred to la our telegrams, covering another effort to impli cate Mr. Blaine in railroad matter*: To the Editor of The 9un-Sir; I enclose to you copies or a letter and receipt, the ori Jlnala of which were signed by the Hon. ames G. Blaine, which he will Lot deny. In consequence of Mr. Blaine's letter, I in vested *5.000, which formed a portion of tae amount receipted for by Mr. Blaine. For some reason Mr. Blaine was unable to de liver the stock and bonus according to hi* contract,and. after more than a year, and with some difficulty, I succeeded in recover ing my proportion of the contribution. 1 do Dot wish, however, to And fault with Mr. Blaine for the failure of the Northern Pacific scheme. It was well arranged, and if Jay Cooke bad been able to sell toe bonds at i'0. those who controlled the franchise would have got the government lands lree from Incumbrance, which, ai Mr. B'alueex pressfd It, would have been a "splendid thing'' to do; and I have no doubt of the sin cerity of M r. Blaine's assurance that "at the worst" it wr.nid have been ' far more valua ble than the Union P?clflc;"and weall know how "that would leave it.'' As it has r?suited, however, the credit mo bilier operation was the better one, and Mr. Blaine'a sagacity was at fault lu uot foresee ing the sad fate of Jay Cooke. Mr. Blaine, in his recent very satiafactory vindication of himself in Congress from charges which. It seems, falsely connected him with Mr. Caldwell, uttered the following moral reflection: " Whenever concealment is desirable, advoidance is advisable; and I do not know any better test to apply to the honor and fairness of a business transac tion." When I read this sentence it occurred to me that I bad been concealing my share of this transaction already too long, aud I felt an almost Irresistible Impulse to obey the wise precept of this teacher of ethics. Hence this letter. " Keef) my name quiet, mentioning it to no one unless to Mr. ValtlutU.'' who seems to have been selling some other -small flyers" of this eort to that sagacious financier, CoL Scott. Very truly yours, Aqci^a Adams. Boston, May 25,1876. MR. BLAINE OFFKBIIIU TO FILL A JIOBTH EBN PACIFIC 1NTKKKST. [iYtrafe ] Augusta, Maine, Nov. 25,1870. My Dear Mr. Fisher: A year a^o and more I wrote to you about purchasing an interest in tbe Northern Pacific railroad for your self and any you might choose to associate with yourself. The matter passed by with out my being able to control It, and nothing more was said about it. Since then the Jay Cooke contract has been perfected, the addi tional legislation has been obtained, and 2:50 miles of ihe road are well nigh completed, and the whole llDe will be pushed forward rapidly. By a strange revolution of circum stances, 1 am again able to control an Inter est, and if you desire it you can have It. Tbe whole road is divided into twenty-four shares of which Jay Cooke <fc Co. have twelve. Tbe interest I speak of la * of 1 24, or 1-192 of the entire franchise, being that I roport Ion of the eighty-one millions of stock that are being divided as tbe road is built, and a like proportion of the Land Company stock, that is formed to take and dispose of the 52,00.1.000 acres of land covered by their grant as amended by the law of last session. The amount of stock whtcb this 1-192 would have in thd end would be about <42.r.,000. and tbe number of acres of laud it represents is nearly 275,000. ihe road Is being builton the 730 bonds, *25,ooo to the mile, which Jay Cooke takes at 90. Instead of mortgaging the land, they make a stock company for its ownershtp, dividing It pro rata among the holders of the franchise. The whole thing can be had for *2-5,000, which is less than one third of what some other sales of small interests have goue at. I do not suppose you would care to iuvest the whole *25,000. I thought for a small flyer ei^ht er ten of you in Boston might take It, each; for *:,500 thus lnter ?sted you would get ultimately #42,000 stock and the avails of some 27 000 acres of laud. Five of you at S5.000 each would have a splendid thing of it. The chance is a very rare oae. I can't touch it; but I obey my first aad best im pulse In offering it to you. All such chances as this since Jay Cooke got the road have beeu accompanied with the obligation to take a large amount of the i>onds at 90, and bold them not less thau three jcars. I will be in Boston Tuesday noon, and will call upon you. Of course if you don't want it, let it pass. You will receive an immedi ate issue of stock to a considerable amount, a: d certificates of land stock also. Of course, tn conlerrlng with others, keep my name onief, mentioning it to no one unless to Mr. Caldwell. I write nnder tbe presumption that you have returned, but I have heard nothing. Yours truly. (Signed) J. Q. Blaise. This stock will be far more valuable,at the uortt, man the Union Pacific, aud see wnere that wonld leave It. The 81-ikited bidding and very lively competition at yesterday's dry goods sale give pleasant aud trustworthy indications of a revival in business. Tae prloes ob tained for cotton goods, though from 2j{ to 10 per cent, below quotations for private safe, we.e higher than bad been expected, and it Is a general belief that if twice tbe amount of goods bad been offered they could all bave been sold. Two such sales as we have now bad In one week are something, we believe, entirely unprecedented In the dry goods trade, and tbeir results are In the high est degree surprising and encouraging.-! n Y.

Eleveh Cikcinitatiahs Killed bv I* diabs ?A Chicago Times special from Lin coln, Neb., says private advices received there announce that the company which passed through Lincoln a mouth ago, known as Col.

They went on a trip more for the frolic and sight-seeing than anything else. Tbe remnant are expected here in a few days. The report appears to be well founded.

Judge Buckner, chairman of tbe District committee, has proposed to bis committee ta it* report a most bitterly partisan tludlug as the result of the examination into Dis tnct affair?. Tbe committfle, we believe, liss not adopted the report. In addition to the national Interest, we or Colnmbus have some local interest in this matter?an emi nent citizen, ex Governor Dennlson, being one oi the District Commissioners, sought to besmirched hy this partisan finding. K.i Governor Dennison needs no delense here, where he has been prominent iu affairs for nearly a life time, and has escaped even slander Itself bythe uprightness or bis life and conduct. The point of Interest Is to know what Insinuation an Ingenious parti san malignant bas been able to frame against such a man, and so gauge from our personal knowledge of him, how much faith may be given generally to the insinuations made against nearly every prominent man in offi?e, this winter. It is extremely difficult, on examination, to And any reason in tne report itself for the vindictive tone adopted, it has no support in reason. Tbe real and only question be tween tbe report and the Commissioners is as to the <-onstructlon of tbe act of June J<>, 1*74. under Which the present Commission government was organized. The Commis sioners have shown l?y their published an swers to interrogatories of the committee, that their construe' ion of the act was adopted on the advice of their legal counsel. II correct, each and all their acts are wholly legal. If not correct, some of their acts are of more than doubtful legal authority. Whatever mistakes they have made, it any, grew out of the construction or the law. hon estly made. This is not denied by the chair man In his report. Now, why has Judge Buck tier aioptei ?och a style or comment, on a mere differ ence or opinion as to the construction of a law" It Is within the discretion of tbe Com missioners to construe the law?they did rot do so without the best legal ad vice?and their construction is indorsed In written opinion by Lyman K. Bass. Jeremiah M. Wilsou and Jay A. Hubhell, who were mem. hers of the investigating committee of last Congress which prepared and reported the Mil to Congress. Wby does Judge Iluckner villlfy the Commissioners, In his libelous report, with no other foundation than this? He \illlfles tne Commissioners, as other committees have vllllfled other men on even worse ground, solely to make party capital. Judge Buckner would not voluntarily go upon the 6treet in bis town, perhaps, and charge that the best man in the town was a thief and a scoundrel, because they hap pened to differ on the question of inlaut baptism; but he will do his best to smirch Uie reputation of the purest and best of men, on the pretext of difference as to a question Of legal construction, because the democratic party may be a gainer by it. Iu the same way, bis fellow members on other commit tees, will put the inventlo s of cheated thieves and perjurers and forgers, against the best evidence ever produced, in order to make a point against tne republican partv. Tbe most monstrous injustice to individuals is perpetrated iu cold blood, without re morse. because It is "for the good or the par ty."? yjhw Suut Jouriutl. The Jat Cooke a Co. BA.iKitjprcT.? I Mr. Edwin M. Lewis, trustee or the estate of Jay Cooke a Co , says tbe Philadelphia Led ger, has made a supplemental report for the benefit or creditors, in which he details the legal proceedings that were followed by a decree or the U. 8. Circuit Court, command ing him to pay over to the United States certain moneys that were due. He had paid or the claim ?6X8,763 81, the sum or $3:38.201 2s on account, and since the decree haa banded over a ruriber sum of *350.000. "Under these circumstances." the trustee aays, "it is im possible to make a furthur cash dividend at the present Ume." "The trustee and committee i-egret that they have been compelled to use the cash fends In tbe manner above stated; but iu their Judgment the plan adopted has been au imperative necessity. It was obviously Uie Interest of the Orm creditors that this coarse should have been pursued to prevent the Inevitable result or Ue total destruction or the values of the inllvidual estates. As they wish to keep the creditors rally advlsod or tbe progrecs of the affairs of the estate tbey have deemed it proper to send this cir cular. It is proper to add that the general aspect, so far as tbe value of tbe real and peri-ona! property ard stocks and bonds ol tbe estate are concerned, seems to be im proving."
