The city wan thrown Into extense excitement on Sat arday evening by a report that a murder had been com mitted ia Went Chapel street, under the moat aggrava tin# circQmiUnMi. Bene two years since, Mr. Willard Clark, now 27 yearn ef age, who baa for the last four or five years been tue proprietor of a email grocery, on the corner of York and (ietrge strte'.s, bacauie acquainted with, and shortly after commenced paying attentions to Mil* Henrietta M., daughter of Mr. John Bogart, now reaident at 18 Weat Chapel street. The young lady was then fifteen years of age. After tome months an engagement of marriage wax concluded, but a year since this engage ment waa breksn off by mutual consent of the parties, Mia* B telling him that she did nut entertain affection ?sough for him to become hia wife. Notwithstanding this rupture, Clark has since been hi the habit of occasionally calliog upon Mias Bogart, who received hia visits against her inclination, although ahe treated him with politeness. This breaking of the engagement, afl we understand, was not only in accord ance with Miss Bcgart'a own preference, but with the wiah?s of her friend?, her family being advised by rela tives to bave Mr. Clark discontinue his calls, on account ef his lack of moral and religions principles, of which we shall apeak hereafter. Seme year and a half since, Miss Bogart formed the acquaintance of Mr. Richard W. Wight, now aged 29, who tad then been In the city two years and a half, *sd was. np to Saturday last, employed in the lock fac tory of Menus. Davenport & Mallory, on East street. During the present year, this couple contracted an at tachment, and were united in marriage by liev. Mr. BUott, of this city, on the 12th of Marcn. The rise and prwgrtes of tneir intimacy was carefully watched by Chirk, who, since their union, has had some words of dita-Bsion with Wight, and intimated that he, Wight, ?? would gee trouble." Notwithstanding this, no suca itaue as has occurred has ever been looked for. Matter* ?attaining to the family were in this train until Satur day laet, in the evening of which Mr. and Mrs Wight were intending to remove from the house of Mr. Bogart, and cemmence ooar ling in a house adjoining. At one o'clock Saturday afternoon, Clark went to the hanae of Mr Charles Beers, No. 41 York street, adjoin hg his store, and on Mr. Beers' coming to the door, re qaented to s?e his son, Mr. W. A. Beers, who is proprie tor of a eity deguerrean establishment. H? was inform ?d that he was not in. Ciark turned to Wave the steps, when Mr. lleers asked him what be wanted. He repliei. MI want to borrow his pistol, to shoot a hungary cat that steals my meat." Mr Been informed him that he conld loan him the atol, and proceeding to his son's room, brought to the ir u revolver and a common "stub" pistol, with a le ver hamper or trigger, the barrel not over four inches In length, and the bore, we shouldjudge from examma tion, thret-e ghtbs of an inch in diameter Clark was affered his choice of these weapons, but said ? "1 think I wil take the little one, for I am not familiar with the wee of a revolver." Mr. Beers informed him that he bad no balls to fit the smaller one, and Clark took from him two balls, fitted to the revolver, much smaller than those belonging to the other. With these he left. Buring the afternoon, he called on Mr. Wm. Dicker man. of No. 11 West Chapel street, to borrow some p r His oD caps. Mr. Diekerman opened his vest pocket and raid to Clark ? * 'There they are, put your hand in and take tome," and Clark did so. We learn from a 5nt)< man to whom Ciark himself gave the information, at these caps old not Qt the pistol, and that at a later period, be purchased some ttiat did, at a shop in the atty: where, we did not asoert&in. At 4 P. M. on Saturday, Clark visited the house of Mr. Bogart. Neither Mr. nor Mrj Wight were in, and he saw only Mrs. Bogart. Wo do nr>t leirn that he ap- I we&rtd at nil different in manner frcm what he had be- | fore exhibited. He then told Mrs. Brgarl that Mrs W. should never leave her father's bouse to live with Wight. Mra. Bogart replied that he must not come there again. After a brief conversation, Clark went from the bonne. At 7 P M Mr. and Mrs. Wight had nearly completed their preparations for leaving their father's roof, lheir good- we.-e packed, and they were sitting in a back room with Vr. and Mrs. Bogart. and a little child belonging to the famMy. At this time the street door was opsned by (Bark, who walked in, passed through the hall, and en tered the room. He said nothing more than "Good evening." but we do not learn that he was answered by Mr Wight In a half moment Mr and Mrs. Wight arose and passed through a sbort spaceway into the parlor, where some of their things had been placed, CI irk folio wing a'ter them. Mr. W'ght kne*led down near the door through which they had just entered, with bis face from the street, to wick up or tie up a bundle, and Mrs. Wight was at his left band, with an infant brother in her arms While in this position, Clark, who had walked into the Middle of the room, and paced it across two or three times, stepped behind Wight, who had not arisen, and placing the pistol he had borrowed of Mr. Beera just above Wight's right ear (the end of tho barrel being witbin a foot of his head), he tired. He was seen to B?ent. the pistol by Mrs. Wight, but tbe Sring thereaf wss instantaneous, and she could give no alarm Wight immediately fell down upon his aide, incohe TCBtlv groaning. Mrs. W. burst torth into a scream, and fled at once to the ba?k room. She yesterday as sarted that after Clark had fired he took hold of her and shook her violently; but the shock to her system was si>"h as almost to render her incapable of preciso knowledge at that time, and in this the may be incor aaet. Mr. Bogart at unce entered the room, but the hall and street doors were open, and Clark had gone. THB AIIBKBT. l.*aving the house of Mr. Bogart, Cl?rk walked quietly down Chupel street, and arriving at York street, turned down In the direction of big store. Two young men, Messrs. Dibble and Muntion, who were panning ta> koune at the time of the report, entered, and ascertain tec what bad taken place, immediately started for a policeman. Officer I<ce Dunning, whose beat includes Vest Chapel street, was found, and at oace pro ceeded to Clark's store. On tbe way tbitber, it fs now ascertained, Clark him Mlf stopped at Mr tleors', wbere be bad borrowed tbe pistol. Mrs. B. came to tbe door, and Clark returned Jt. Mr*. B. asked him if be had shot tbe cat. He re plied, "I have shot a two leggfd cat, instead of a four legged one; yo u will bear mure about it to morrow, if joc do not to-night"? left ber and passed int> his store. Ia a few moments ofliccr Dunning entered, and the ?flowing conversation ensued: ? , "Good evening, Mr. Clark. '' '?Good evening, air. " " What have you been doing t " " I don't know." " Well, I want you to go with me " "Certaiuly, I suppose I must." Clark then took some money from his pocket an1 gave it to bis partner, with directions as to the manner in which it should be pud ?at, appearing perfectly cool and collected. He ttieu took tbe officer's arm, and the two started for th? jail. We learn that although policeman D. expected and was on the watch for a struggle with bis prisoner daring the whole walk, be neither made any attempt or manifested the slightest desire to escape. He camel himself like a man who wan goirg about his unial employment! During ^ walk the officer inquired and Clark responded as ^Wb^r did yorf do tWs for, Clark t" " I don't know." " Was it premeditated f " "No, not exactly premeditated; but 1 thought I might have trouble with him, some time, and that I would be prepared for him. Arrived at the jail he was received by Mr Bryan, searched, and In half an haur after he shot Wigbt be was lodged in cell Mo 16 ? ihe one occupied by the murderer Jennings, after his condemnation and up to his execu tion. Here for the present we leave him, and return to the scene. Mr. Wight Wan immediately raised and planed on a Mt bed in the parlor, and llrs. W. removed to another room across tbe ball, where, during the evening, the wild laughter she at times indulged in seemed to de mote that her brain was turned by the horrible ca lamity. Contrary to onr expectations, on visiting Mr. B'igart'* at 10 o'oiock yesterday A. M.. we found Mr. Wight still Iviag. His wile was by bis bedside in as quiet a mind as could be expected. Her husband's eyes continued atoned, but just previous to our entrance, he had opened them for a moment at Mrs. W. 'a request, and also had taken ber hand. Physicians bad been in attendance and probed the wound, but had not found tbe ball. At IX P. M. we again visited the bouse. During the forenoon a lady, in combing Mr. W.'s hair, discovered a clot or blood on tbe back or bis bead, a little above tbe ttne of tbe place where the ball bal entered, and wash ing it away, found that the scalp at least was broken there. Dr. Punderson was at once called in, other physi cians eame, and it was then concluded tbat the ball, -which had not yet b?en found, probiMy passed out of th? bra.n In tbat place, though this was not certain. Mr. W. was in the same condition as in the morning, and hopes were held oat that if he were kept quiet, he might recover. Mr. Bryan says tbat Clark ate one of the heartiest breakfasts he ever furnished a man, and appeared g< ne ?ally cneoncerned. In addition, we have direct reports of two different conversations held with Clark yester day, by a gentleman connected with Mr. Bogart's fa mily, well acquainted with the prisoner. At 10 A. M. he entered the cell, and was greeted with considerable cordiality by the prisoner, who, however, was somewhat agitated. The gentleman Mid ? "Clark, 1 am sorrr to Me ybu here. How came you to shoot Wight?" Hie reply was to the eflect that he did not know. He Mid he borrowed 'he pistol? tbat he " had no idea of shooting W. wnen he borrowed It." ne Mid the ao* was not premeditated. **^7 10 * question as to whether he carried the pistol JjJh him when be went to the house at four o'clock on nwnrday afternoon, he said that he'dld not. "Why not?" *hy, I did'nt know what 1 might do." "Why did yon ?jm it with you when you went up at seven o'clock ? whlkt you should do then4" M ont" mj P??ket> an<* thought I would not take '?Didn't yon eon template shooting Wight*'' I expected to have trouble with him"? the prisoner ?onid not directly admit premeditation.

CLARK'S AND WIGHT'S FHIKND8 ? INC 1 DINTS. C'ark has long been an Inhabitant of th* city. His mother, now deoeaaod, kept a boarding house on the corner of State and Court stieots for many years. He has been regarded a* a generally good natured man? although he was known to be very troublesome, and somewhat dangerous, when occasionally excited. Wi|ht has no mother. His father resides in New York city. Bo baa a sistsr her*, from whom, up to last night, moat of the facts in regard to her brother's terriola con dition were sedulously reserved, as she nearly went into paroxysms when informed that be had been shot, and had not recovered at what were then our 1st* at accounts. His father waa telegraphed Saturday evening, and again on Sunday, and was expected to arrive la last night's mail train. Clark is a stout, burly young man, with a head whose mullah obstinacy cf purpose i* aaid to attract the in stant attention of the beholder. Wight is amall and spare, of a wiry make, and we judge of a very tenacious hold on Jlfe. Since his marriage, Wight had told Clark hat he did not like to hare him call upon his wife. DURING LAST NIGI1T. Aa we learn from a viait at IX P. M. to-day, Mr. Wight waa restless, and it was evident that conscious ntss was slowly returning. His father reached the city at 0 o'clock last night, un.l at once went to his son's bed side, where lie (the father) manifested mu 3b self control, although deeply moved. This morning, his sister, whom he had called for at intervals, and ins father came to him together. The sufferer raised his arm and threw it over his father's neck, exclaiming, " Father ? cornel" The scene is and to have beggared description, both father and sister be ing unable to renrain compoaed. Dtb. Knight, Beers, Klakealee, Punderson, Hubbard, Lloyd and Downes, visit* 1 Mr. Wight this mornin?, and made a very minute examination of the wounds on his ht-ad, shavng off th? hair from its bask part, and care fully in?pet ting it. Inoir general op r iou now is, thit the ball doe* not remai.i therein. Dr. Blakeslee is Arm in tbis belief. He ha* bean engaged this m >rning in ex periment* ? firing ball* through the head of an animal ? and convinced himself that the orifice through which the ball emerges instantly or soon after closes, and gives no ea?ily dlacernabie mirk of having buen opened. Ihe tact that hitherto none of the physicians have succeeded in opening the wound on the back part of Mr. W.'s skull, baa been th* reaaon why some of them were unwilling to believe that the bill passed oat there. The experiments of Dr. B at least afford tome reason to think that it may nevertheless have don* so The wound on the bacx part of the sku 1 set ma also to be in an X form, identical with that assumed by the brain, in Dr. B.'s experiments!. In case t^.e ball is out of the head, it is thought that Mr. W may recover. To-morrow and Wednesday will be the critical periods, ou account of the apprehended setting in of inflammation and fever. Mr. Wight has taken tome nourishment, and ka<< drink occasionally given him. This morning he called for re freshment, but when it was offered him, declined tt. His treatment is simple, little moie being done for him thin to bathe his head with cold water. He appear* to be in some pain, and occasionally utters feeb'e moans Mrs Wight ia more calm to-day, and was with her hnftbi.nl when ve w-re in the room. Mrs. Bojart has been force 1 to yield to the excitement of the occasion, and is mw confined to her Dtd. Mr. Wight's sistsr is alsj in a very feeble condition. CLARK I. AST NIGIIT AND TO-DAY. Drs Knigat and Punderson visited CI irk last night, to ascertain whether there were wads in the pistol. Clark freely told tbtm there were two, or rather, that th re wan one, and that be wound paper around the ball, to make it St the barrel To-day, lie man'fetits, as <v? learn at the jail, the same feelings as yester.Ky, beinj ratr.t-r indifferent than otherwise to his condition. H? has been visited by but few persons. FUHTHBK VAETICUL1RS. [From the New Haven Journal, May 1.] At a late hour ?n Sunnay evening, the father of Mr. Wight, who resides in Sew York, arrived in the city, and reached the house of Mr. Bogart about 10 o'clock, lie bad expected to find his son a corpse, aa the tele graph despatch Renounced to him that his death was huurly expected. He a tempted to embrace the pale aud bleeding form of hi* son, upon his arrival, and trixd in vain *o obtain a recognition. Young Wight remained unconsciom, aud at times delirious, anl did not sesm to recogniee his father until Monday morning, when he sud denly cried ont? "Papa, come to tne !" and threw his arme around his neck and kiseed him. Ihisacene was tri.ly affecting. The pale and haggard appearance of the poor aut'erer, clasped in his father's arm*, seamed sug gestive of a lust and ttnal embrace before his departure to another worid. His ever loving wife remains by his bed-side, watch ing every favorable or unfavorable symptom, with an eagerness ana affection unparalleled. He raised him*elf up in a sitting posture during the day, and exclaimed, "Henrietta, are you somfortabla I" and then sunk back again upon his pillow and remained unconscious forsome length of time. Itoctnra Knight, Punderson, Blakelee, and Beers, were in attendance at intervals throughout the day; yester day, aud the wound was probed. The instrument was thrust into the brain about three inches in a direct course, thus indicating that the ball passed from rig it io ieft, in a cireo.t, and not in an angular course. Upon the top of the head, where it was supposed that the ball passed out, it has been atcertained that the skull is fractured, but there ia no aperture remaining where it ia possible for the ball to pass out. But in many case i the skull closes up, or a fracture upon the skull is healrd in an incredible short length of time, and it is possible that such may be '.he case with Mr. Wight. He seems to feel more pain from the wound on the top of hiB head than from the one where the ball passed into his brain. When his Attendants were washing and bathing his heal, at the time the wound upon the top of his niad win discovared, he remained unconscious, bat suddenly exhibited higns of consmoui;nesn and rose up from the bed, wtcn one of his attendants placed her hmd upon the newly discovered wound. He seemed desirous to impress upon the minds of bis attendants the idea fiat they had made a new diieovery, anl took this method of informing them of tlie fact. During tium'ey niglit he was unconaciuus, bnt bsgan to speak at intervals, anl finally became quite talkative, though not rational. His mind seemed particularly occupied with military matters, and he talked consider able upon this subject, and at timet* quite rational. He is a number of the Governor's Guards of this city, and during the night called the names of nearly every mem ber of that company, occasionally making sympathetic and thriil'ng appeals to tbem for aid and comtoit, having a maria of mind, and a morbid idea that they could alleviate his suffering. Dr. Knight visited Clark at the jail yesterdav. and ascertained of h-ra the position in which Mr. Wight ap peared at the time he shot him, and various other par ticulars. Clark answered all questions put to him with candor and oincerity. There has been an intense depire manifested by our citizens generally to ree Clark, and a large number have visited him, nud he haa appeared as cool and deliberate as ever, except when a gentleman viewed him in the afternoon yesterday, who wai a par ticular friend of Clark's. It is reported that lie s bed tears qui'e freely during this interview, and seemsl considerably affecied. A report has gained currency in the city that he Is laboring under temporary insanity, but this is wholly untrue. He appears as Arm and decided In mini and action a? be ever appeared in his lire. H? eats heartily, and exhibits no sjmptom of insanity or aberration of mind. Thi exclt?m?ht in this city concerning this brutal af fair !s constantly increasing, and every particular con cerning it is eagerly read by the public. POSTSCRIPT. Monday Evening, 9 o'clock.? Our reporter has just re turned from the bedsido of Mr. Wight, anl brings the cbeti irg though unexpected news that he is much bet ter. His pulse is quite good, his skin seem) to be grow ing moist, which is a favorable symptom, and he Is more conucious than bo has been, and exhibits no unfavora ble symptoms up to this bour, but appears to be gra dually improving lie is constantly Cklling for water, and appears to b? extremely thirsty. His wife happened to have a glass of water in her band this evening, when he seized the glass, and immediately drank every drop of the water with great avidity. Foctors Kn><ht aad Punderson give it as their opinion that the ball is still lodged la the brain, while Doctors Beers snd Blake>lee are of the opinion that it nas passed out. Who shall decide when doctors disagree ? The Praplt'i Proclamation In Kanana. GOVERNOR KKEDER DETHRONED ? A NBW GOVERNOR TO BB El.KCTED. The citizens of Knn fas Territory, after a more than reasonable prriod of probation, have been emphatically convinced that the presettGovsrnorof Kansas Territory, A. H. Reeder, is positively unfit for and incompetent to the duties of this high and responsible position. This asser tion is demonstrated to universal satisfaction in a want of acquaintance with and interest in the people, an Igno rance of their character and general neceasities, and other important points of view, as shown in every offi cial step which ho has taken from the time that he com menced acting in the capacity of Governor of this Terri tory. These Inconvenlencles, arising in the appoint ment of an Kaslern man, necessarily Ignorant of our Western country and all Its characteristics, whose com petency would have consisted in the possession of the very qualities, the absence of which, in th? gubernato rial composition of Mr. Reeder, establishes bis incom petency to the duties of the office which he now holds. The citizens of Kansas Territory regard the appoint ment of any roan as Govern crr>of a people, without refer ence to the cboiee of those who are of necessity to be come subject to hie administration, as an exercise of arbitrary power , unsti stained by any sanstlon of repub lican form, principle or precedent. Therefore, the citizens of Kansas Territory have re solved. for the purpoee or remedying the evils aad in oonvenienses Inflicted upon them from the executive chair ;of Kansas Territory, to hold an election at Leaven worth City, on the 28th day of iprll, (present month.) for the purpose of electing some suitable person to succeed the present Governor, whose reaioval from said office will be solicited at the hands of the Presi dent of the United States by the citizens of Kansas Ter ritory. It f?, therefore, earnestly enjoined upon the citizens of the different districts throughout the Territory to ssnd one delegate to I>eavenworth City on the 28th of the present month, (April,) for the pnrpoee of conferring upon this subject, and to seleet some suitable and com petent citizen of the Territory to Oil this office, whose appointment by said convention, at Leavenworth City, shall be sent, or cause to be sent, to the President of the United States, as may be determined by said conven tion, requesting the removal of the present Incumbent, and an appointment as his successor of the person who may be selected, in the manner above described, as the eholce of the people. It Is earnestly requested that the oitizens of every district In Kansas Territory will give this sabjeet their undivided attention, and not fail to be represented in this eonvention. CITIZENS OF KANSAS TERRI TOR V. April 8, 1865. The settlement of Grldley Hollow, In Cortland county, N. Y., has been almost entirely swept away by a flood IB a saa#U stream called the Big Brook. Alleged Corruption In PMuMflvukb m BsroKT or 'tbm ooumrra or toe fknwstl TiliU UQIBfATCmi ON TU ALXBQKD BBIBIBY CABS. Pbiijloelpbia, April SO, 1869. The mountain that <ru ?o long is labor at Harrisburg upon the alleged briber/ and oorrupboa in connection with the Senatorial contest, haa at least brought forfi a move. The object of the report appears to bare been to whitewash Uie member* ot the Legislature tram the imputation* to whiob they are open. l be intimation on the part ot the committee that if Doctor Jay no had come before them, aad made a candid statement cf the facts, they would bare been more kind ly disposed, looks very much as if they too shared in the tailing so common to legislators or the present day, snc were uisaptomted that be did not attempt to con ciliate them in the usual mode. lhe more prominent candidates for Senator come off scot free in tbe inferences and conclusion* of the com m.ttee, which is a most reasonable fact, and eonflrms the general belief that the scapegoat haa escaped Into tbe wilderness with the sins of the whole pack, expiated by tbe process common under the old dispensation, and renewed now under the ru'e of Know Nothingism in Pennsylvania. To the Senate and Howe of Repreientativei of the Com monwealth of Petintylvania. Ibe committee of the Senate an! House of Bepre sontatlveH, appointed under the joint resolution of tbe liitn of lebruury last, to inquire whether any corrupt or improper influences had been used, or attempted co be used, to effect tbe election of Un'ted States (Senator, with power to send for peraons add papers, beg leare to tubm't tbe following report: ? ^Youi committee met on tbe same day it was appoint ed, aiid cganited. It immediately commenced the ex amination of witnesses, and from tbe Kith of February to tbe 22d of March last met almost daily, Sundays ex ? eepted. One great difficulty in the way of successful and speedy inquiry was tbe fact that Dr. David Jayne, his son-in-law, Isaac S Eshelmtn, and Michael Piper, all of whom were ascertained to be 'mporUnt witnesses, could ?ot, after the most diligent search, be found. In tbis connection it is deemed proper to add that the Commit tee notified tbe friends of Dr. Jajae that he was impli cated by tbe testimony taken, and that his character was so involved as todemanl his personal attenda ace and explanation before tbe Committee. His refusal to appear, under tbese eircuir stances, is hardly con<iist*nt with any other hypothesis that that of a consciousness en his part that his conduct was incapable of explica tion, and justifies the inference tliat he so considered it. It is proved by the testimony that John P. U.-rr, a mem ber of tbe House of Representatives from Luzerne coun ty, wsh corruptly approached by Ir. Jayne bimself, and also Dy his fi tends, Kshelman and Piper, and that the only rest on why said member was not bribed to vote for Dr. Jayne for United Suites Senator, w,\s essose hi promptly and firmly resisted and resented the attempt to seduce him from the path of rectitude. It may be suggested, in palliation of this manifest attempt at corruption, that Dr Jayne was inexperienced in politics, and was bctrsyed into this violation of both law ann morals, in tbe excitement of a heated contest, and acted under an impiession that rival candidates were u?ing the sime means. However this may be, if he had appeared before your committer, cindidiy stited tbe facts, and thereby t ho wn a disposition to tedreHS, fo far ub in his power, tbe wrongs committed, an i to remove tbe unjust and prejudicial suspicions and injuries inflicted upon the character of ' the Legislature by his conduct in tbe premiss, your commif.ee would have felt much more kindly disposed, and inclined to a more charitable view of his case. Us has not done this, however; but, in his zeal to obtain an honorable office, lie inflicted serious wounds upon the reputation of the legislature and the chiraster of the comm ttee, and then escaped from its jurisdiction, like a fugitive from justice, acxious on'y for his own safety, and regardless of the wiongs done to others. Tlio Hon. Lewis C. Levin was also a candidate for the United States Senate, or at least intended to become our, upon a certain contingency referred to in the evi dence. I* stems by the testimony, he intended to raise some thirty or forty thousand dolUrs, partly In con nection with this object, and partly for other purposes; hut how much of tbe fund for each, does not appear. Railroad bands to the amount of $4,000, and letters of credit for other and less sums, were raised by him prior to and not long before the time fixed for the election of United States Senator. The railroad bonds were taken in payment of a debt he had a right to contract, but was received with declarations referring to the contingency of hii becoming a candidate; but there is no evideoce that any portion of the fun1 so raised was used cor ruptly by bim, or that any attempt was ma.de so to use it by any one. except it may be inferred from wbat is said to have transpired at the appointed inter view between John P. Htrr, of tbe House, and Dr. David Milling er. of the Senate. To say the least of this matter, it is exceedingly unfort.inate that such eiTorts were made to raisa this large fund at tbe exciting time of the can vass for Senator; for not a few of the injurious suspi cions and reports bad tbeir origin in this very transac tion, and by it several members of the House became apparently involved. Your committee take pleasure in hereby nnanimouily declaring, that, after as thorough an investigation as was practicable, the evidence on tbis part of the case, taken together, does not criminate any members of the liouse; nor does it even justify an infer ence that any of tbem bad acted Improperly in the pre mises. This, teo. ib aaiU,'witnout intending any reflection upon the veraciiy or character of tbe witnesses who testified before the committee on this subject. It is be 'leved they acted from ijojd motives and ia geed faltb, but were deceived by statements made to them by oth ers, and which were subsequently fonnl to be incorrect, ir at lea?t incapable of substantiation. With these re mark s, the testi mony of Messrs. Levin, Tucker, Ash mead, Ccunelly, Nelson. Sanderson, Cooper and others, s submitted, that the Senate and House may form their own conclusions in relation to this fund, and all persons in akywine connected with it. As to tbe other candidates whose names were bolcre the I-egielature for the office of l\ S. Sena tor. there la no evidence calculated to implicate ? ither of them in the fairness of any efforU tint may have been made by them in connection with thia high and honorable office. A hasty perusal of the teatimony taken in the course of the investigation might induce the impression that it reflected strongly on Jacob S. Haldeman, tbe Senator fiom "Vork. This is especially true of the letter purport ing to be written by 1). A. Paxton to said Haldeman, re qu ring bim to refund ceitain monejs, kc. Injustice to that Senator, your committee deem it proper to sty that tbe whole teatimony npon this transaction, taken together, not only fails to prove anything corrupt or improper on his part, but ha* satisfied the committee that a base attempt was made to extort money I'rom him under false pretences ; and vety probably a conspi racy concocted for the same purpose, it muat be borne in mind that one E. M. Paxton, Esq., is the recognized Attorney of Dr. Jayce, and was at Iltrrisburg with tbe doctor during ths canvass, and had left only a few day.* before the date of tbe letter in question. Assuming tint Dr. Jajne or some one for him, had placed $900 in tbe hands of Mr. Haldeman, and alleging tbat he had abused a pretended trust, the letter was a palpable endeavor to lev? black mail and ex'ort from him $500. The evidence clearly shows tliat A. J. H?rr, Ksq , was instiumental in getting up this letter and forwarding it to Mr. Haldeman. and your committee, after a searching investigation, wat unable to com* to any other conclu sion than tbe on* here Indicated, Your eommittee would direct the special attention of the Senate and Houfce to tbe testimony of Mr. A. J. Hen, not only in iroof of tbe correctoera of the conclusions arrived at, but also as a specimen of prevarication, contradiction and attempted concealments, rately to be met with. Tier' is a contradiction between the testimony of Senator Veiling* r anl Mr. .loo. F. Herr, the member of the House heretofore al'nded to. Tbe latter states tbat at the request of the former tbey bad a private interview, in which Mr. Mellioger told Mr. Herr that if he (Terr) would vote for L. C. l*vln, and would persuade Senator Shuman to vote for bim; he (Ilcrr) would be substantially rewarded. Mr. Herr further states that at tbe same interview, Mr i Melllrger offered to introduce trm to Mr. Levin, with an assurance tbat the lattor would eater into an agreement with him (Herr), to any amunt he could reasonably ex pecter demand. In Mr Mellmger's testimony he ad mits the interview, bnt denies all recollection of the part of tbe conversation here mentioned. From what has been said, as well as the testimony herewith submitted, it is manifest that however much certain outsi<!e parties may be implicated, your commit tee has been uDable to discover anj thing of importance in relation to the members of either the nenateor House, except as hereihbefore indicated, or which wouli at all justify tbe general stisp'c ons of corruption and charges of bribery ho prevalent about the time thecommit.ee was appointed.

FINANCIAL AND COMMERCIAL. lOlET liKEKI, Tuebdat, May 1?6 P. M. At the opening the stock market was quite buoyant, but before the adjournment of the board there was a downward tendency, and at the close lower prioes ruled. Notwithstanding this heaviness, which came so suddenly upon the market, a slight advance was realised, com pared with yesterday's prices. Virginia fl's improved }? per cent; Illinois Central Bonds, Cumberland Coal, X; Harlim, }? ; Michgan Central Railroad, Mishigan Southern Railroad, 2 ; Panama Railroad, ; Cleveland and Toledo Bailroad, Jf. Reading Riilroad declined X per cent, with only moderate sales. The market was not at all active, and operations were undoubtedly unfavor ably affected by the reported Urge shipments of specie by the steamship Pacific from this port for Liverpool to morrow. After tho adjournment of the board, the following sales of bonds and stocks were made at auction by Si meon Draper: ? *1,170 Mercantile Mutual Ins Co Scrip, 1853 .11 277)* do do do 1*62 11* 2 fioo Chic & Miss BR 1st mort. .. .Int added. 76J< a 70 )i 100 sbs Ward Mining Co, Alleghany, Md 2 10 Pacific Mail Steamship Co., Aspin wall's 30 At the second board there was no material variation In quotations. No demand of consequence existed for any of the loading securities. It is estimated that about one million of dollars will be shipped to morrow, and that it will bo about the last largo shipment for tho season. The Nicaragua steamer is over dueat this port, with eight days later news front California. Her arrival 1s anxiously looked for ; bnt those who expect she will bring a large amount of gold will be disap pointed. We look lor about three hundred and fifty thousand dollars by her. She may bring government drafts enough to make tho aggregate half a million, but that will be the utmost. Until affairs in California be come settled, and the movements of gold get again into regular channels, the Panama line will bring the bulk of specie shipments. Gold dust will come to this port with the mall, so that the aseans can get to band before the drafts are presented. We have not the slightest doubt but that California will bring up the shipments of gold to the usual average aggregate before the close of the year. That production is going on more rapidly than ever there is not tho least doubt, and that it will ultimately reach this market is equally true. By tho time tho current of gold begins to set pretty strong this way from California, tho flow out wards on the Atlantic site will have ceased, and the ac cumulation here must be rapkl. The returns yesterday from the banks showed specie on hand amounting to $14,282,424, and returns from tho Assistant Treasurer of the United States at this port showed on hand, in gold, the sum of $8,888,302 08. These Items make an sggre^e of $22,670,786 08. With suoh an Immense amount In hand, with weekly receipts from California ranging from a quarter to a million of dollars, we ean spare a few minions for export without feel ing it. There is every reason to believe that our next harvest will bo most abundant. Tho weather thus far this season has been all that oould be desired, and in about sixty days tho wheat crop of tho oonntry will be secured, Om good rop will put as right upon our pics again, and place us in a posi tion to fe?4 tho wiofc of furop? tf necessary, U tho w in Strop* wiUmm, af whiah than is at pnant a fair probability, *? ihtU tad before the laps* of aaothsr twelvemi nth a chan f* ia the goU enrront.

The receipt! for the first fooi montha of this year amounted to $1,187,694 40, against $1,760,190 17 for the cam* time in 1864, showing a decrease of $572, 601 77. The Boston Journal says The Governor of Massachusetts has vetoed the bill which pasted tbe Senate and Assembly, for loaning the credit of the State to tho Vermont and Massachusetts Kailroad Company. The aama fate evidently awaita the other bill* loaning a credit to the Western, the Norwich and Worcet-ter, and tbe New York Ceatral companies. The Legislature have the power of passing this bill over the veto of tbe Governor, rhe bill paaaed both branch es by a vote of more than two-thirda. In th* Senate tbe vote stood 22 to 6, and in the Houae the vote was 183 to 77. A aimiiar vote in both branohea would paas th* bill over the Governor 'a veto. The Anatin State (Texas) Gazette has left its ruinous repudiation doctrines, and finds a safer and more pro" fitable course in following in the * ake of Gov. Pease, in the advocacy of a scheme of " internal improvements," in which tbe large landed interest of Texas is eminently involved. The amount of duties on imports paid at th* port of Bt. Louis, Missouri, for ths quarter ending October 31, 1864, was $262,660 38. During th* same quarter in 1S66 tbe amount paid amounted to only $2,643 24. This is a very respectable increase in a few years. In relation to th* issu* of an unsecured circulation by tbe Government Stock Bank of Ann Arbor, Michigan, the Detroit Free Vreu of 28th nit. says : ? The overissue is an andaeious fraud, the porpetratora of which, and their aiders and abetters, before and after tbe fact, no measures should be ltft untried to expoBe and puni.-h. To expose and bring tbe guilty parties to ponubment is the especial sworn duty of the Attorney General Tbe friends of that officer must exceedingly regret tbat. having so long ago b'en made acquainted with the Iraud, he has thus far failed to take official cog nizance of it. Such failure, under all the circumstances, certainly wears a bad appearand*. It appears to us that tbe late Stafe Treasurer owes it to himself and the pub he, to ? i plain, so far as he is able, the facts of thin over issue. That he is entirely innocent of misconduct in tbe matter, we have the fullest confidence, and tbat he is innocent of carelessness in the exeention of his duties towards tbe bank, we xineerely hope. But since there is no longer any question about the fact of an overissue, he should take an early occasion to tell the publio all he knows about it. Tbe earnings and expenditures of tbe Morris Canal and Banking Company for the fiscal year ending December 81, 1864, were as follows: ? Morris Cjlnal and Banking Company. Income for tolls $245,481 54 do. rents 1,184 00 Total $246,016 54 Expenses. For repairs of canal and worka $53,618 23 Operating canal 28,767 41 &a)ailes, office, law and travel ling expenses 14 556 30 Transportation account 1,273 32 Interest on floating debt, and exchange 0,098 04 $104,203 30 Balance, profit of the business Dec. 31,1864 9142,412 24 The report for the year says the reselpts from tolls and other sources daring the year 1654, amount to the cum of 9246,616 64, being oyer thirty per cent advance upon the income of the previous year. The current expenses for the year have amounted to 9104,203 30 ? in this, however, is included the cost of repairing two breaches in the canal, and other damages occasioned by the severe storms of Maich and April. There baa likewise been expended in the permanent improve ments of the canal and works $22,666 16. The balance of income has been used in the payment of tbe Interest on the bonded debt, dividends on the preferred stock, and the floating debts of the company. Tbe expenditure for peimanent improvement of the canal and works, was made necessary by the large increase of business, and by guarding against interruptions in tie navigation by such disasters as are incident to canals. And the board of directors are now able to say that at no period hitherto bas the canal had as much capacity for busi ness or been in a more substantial condition than at present. Tbe financial condition of the company at the close of the year cannot fail ?o gratify the stockholders and all friends of the canal, and inspire increased confi dence in its futnre prosperity and usefulness. The earn ings of the canal were sufficient to pay all eurrent ex penses of the year, the inttrcst on the bonded debt, dividends on the preferred stock, and for the permanent improvements as above stated, and also to extinguish entirely the floating debt of tbe company. The prospects of business for the ensuing year are encouraging. The amount of tolls received on the Morris Canal in each of the ten years has been as follows .?1846, 913,007 46; 1846, 951,212 30; 1847, 967,687 GO; 1848, 965,631 75; 1640, 900,220 48; 18(0, 908,224 26; 1861, 9110,780 66; 1852, 9140,202 28; 1863, 9117,440 71; 1854, 9846,420 25.
