WASHINGTON. Prospects of the Aspirants for Nomi nation at St Louis. THE THREE MORE PROMT CANDIDATES. The Secret Service Fund Investigation tiro wing Interesting. FREEDMAN'S BANK FRAUDS. JUtouuding Developments Made Before the. Special Committee. FROM OUR SPECIAL CORRESPONDENT. Washington, April 23, 1870, 1HK PRESIDENTIAL NOMINATION AT HT. LOUIS? CONDITION AND PROSPECTS OP TIIK MOKE PROMINENT CANDIDATES CONSIDERED?POS SIBILITIES TOR "THE ORRAT UNKNOWN '? PEERING OP DEMOCRATS REGARDING THEIR SUCCESS, Among the prominent democratic politician* hero the three Presidential candidates thought to have the hest chalices of tho nomination at St. l.ouis aro Gover nor Tllden, Senator Itayard and Judgo David Davis. J udge Davis is thought tormldablo l>y his strength in Illinois, Indiana. Tennessee and perhaps Missouri, und he Is believed lo have a jioverlul following In inauy other Western Stales. lie has no strength In the Fust, except in Pennsylvania, and not much In tho South. Governor Tildcu is sa d to havo a largo and rapidly Increasing strength in llio Southern Stales, Which, his lriends say, must lnivc a good deal of In hue net: in the Couvenllou, because the Southern Stales will all, or nearly all, go democratic In the elec tion. The Southern doiegates, it is clanuoU, will huvo therefore a right to make ihoir preference known and fell. Seuator DuyarU is on ull bunds acknowledged to be strong, with nearly all of Tildeu's strength, and lotno oi his own. "Hayard Is Tllden's heir," n shrewd domocrat said. ?'He bAs fewer bittor opponents in the parly than Tll den; ho could, belter tliau Mr. TUdsu, uuite tho dis cordant elements of Ills party in New York; he could carry as many voles in tho Southern States ss Tildcu, und probably more in tho West." Another leading democrat remarked:?"Bayard Is modes). 11 e Is not pushing himself nor does he allow his friends to do so. He bus won the estocm and gratitude of sonic of Mr. Tilden's strongest lriends by his atlltuJo toward their cundidalo, and ho is in a posi tion where the Tilden men, If they cuumit compass tho Governor's nomination, are most likely to fall buck on llu.vard and give lnni a hearty support." Mr. Hendricks' chances are hardly mentioned here now, though ho lias some warm admirers lu tho South ern Slates. Scnaior Tburman's strength has been in jured by an adroit suggestion lluug nut b ' tho Tilden men that the October election in Ohio Is very uncertain, and iliat if Thurmuu, an Ohio man, were nomiuated, and thereupon Ohio were lost lu October, this would he a latal blow to tho democratic side, whereas, II ihe cundidalo wero from soiuo other State than Ohio, the loss of that Stato in October would bo a mere Inci dent In the campaign. Hut this goes also against the lorn in allot: of Hendricks in Indiana, which also is uu incenaiu State. The Davis movement seems to galu itrcugih. There is no doubt a nenoral indisposition tniong leading democrat* to be dragged iuto unolhcr , Sreeley movement. '?Wo ought to nominate democrats on our ticket," I they sav; "good nu-o, i-latesmeu with known priu - ciplcs, ami appeal lo the couutry with these. Then if we are defeated we shah at any rate not be disorganized, tnd If we win we cull hope to uold the country." Hut an the other Laud niauy wise democrats say lhat the war leeiing is so strong in the Northern States and so rasily aroused by the efforts of demagogues that it j will bo difficult to elect a democrat; It will bo hard to conquer tho distrust of tho Northern people, and therefore it would be wisest to nominate a man like Judge Davis or ex-Senator Trumbull, In whoso past record and political associations thore is nothing to excite the prejudices or suspicious of Northern tolers. There is no doubt that this teeling, wolch is very gi-ueral aud growing, and which seems lo be strongest among Western and Southwestern men, jives Judge Davis a very good prospect. Nome of those who advocate lus nomln.ilion desire to see David A. Wells, of Connecticut, nominated as second ou the ticket, and say that Mr. Wells" woll known position on the currency ;.nd tariff (|itestton? and his ability would strengthen such a ticket with the country. There is. however, evidently a chance for an un known at St. IaiuIs, and It Is said here that Senator English, ol Connecticut, is quietly urged, and that he may even decline a renoir.liiat^oii for the United Stales senate, lu \ icw of llio possibilities at St. 1-outs. Among Ibe political gossip acre Is a rumor lhat the Tilden sien ure pushing Judge Davis forward as a tort of lumtuy, whom the> imagine they can withdraw in Mr. fildeu's favor at the proper liuio; but if they really .litbk thus, they are bluudering. Tho flavis move ment has a real base, aud is uot a shaui by any oicaus and if It were not for Judge Davis' relation in 1S72 t<> tne labor reform platform, with its unlimited greenbacks and other communistic ideas, lie would to-day be a very formidable candidate. It is ac knowledged. however, that the rc-ult at St. l.ouis de pends in a good degree upon ovents yet to come. At present the leading democrat* feel by no means certain of carrying lite Presidential election. They adinil that no one can foretell what the temper of the people will be in November, aod it is certain that the uotnliiatious made at Cincinnati w ill affect more or 1c s tho result at St. Louis. Mr. BLAINE TO REFUTE THE CHARGES MADE AOAIMBT IIIM IN THE HOUSE TO-DAT. Mr. Ulalno will to-morrow in tho House riso to a guesUon of privilege and make what is un derstood will be a very thorough refutation of tho rbarges which have lately been made against bun.

MOVEMENT FOB THE INVASTIG.'.TION OF FED ERAL OFFICEk* IN LOUISIANA. Mr. Gibson of Lou is. ana. will offer a resolution to mwrruw tor the appointment u! a committee to investi gate thoroughly ilio New Orleans Custom House and all the lideral officers in l-ouisiana. He hopes that his resolution will pass without objection, but if It (too* not It will be re erred to a committee, and at onee re ported hack, so ua to pass by a majority voto. There I* no doubt that such an investigation w H d.scios# many and great Irregularities and even crime*. The republicans iu Ibe House will hardly refuse an investi gation of o kind similar to lhat w hich the republicans IB tho Senate have just ordered lor Mississippi. Politic* in Louisiana?an old time contest ANTICIPATED- WHAT THE CITIZEN* OF THE STATE I>F.*IEE. The political movements In Louisiana are not very promising. It Is **'d tLat llie republican* will nontl uale a rmg ticket with Warmoth or 1.adding/ ?t the bead, nbd that the democrats arc likely to nominate ruber McKnery or Wilta This would mako a canvass In which tho orderly people of the State would take no Iwietrst. It h*" hern proposed by the hvttsr kind of republicans lo nominate General Hu**y for Governor. Be is a Northern man, mere nan I and planter, <Jrj p.puhir in New Orleans and among t.lio b. at IE the State, and it I* thought Hint if the republi can* plarH htm *t the head of their ticket, with good men for tba other piece*, they might carry the State. The great body of th* people M Louisiana want pesce and ddiet ? renaonnbly honest government, nnd mg ahohl phliUc* than thnv do to *nt rid ol thieves and unust men In offi?o. If tho democrats are wine enough to make their ticket of moderate men and leave out the extremist* they could easily carry the State, tut they are not good politician*, uud there^loea not seem to be much reason to hope that they will use their opportunity. Louisiana politics in both parties are loo touch under tho control ul extreme men. FROM OUR REGULAR CORRESPONDENT, j WautiuiGTOX, April 23, 1876. JOnN I. DAVENPORT GETTING NERVOUS BEFORE THE COMMITTEE -BIS MUCH LAUDED PLAN OF SUPPRESSION FOUND IN THE STATUTE? CERTAIN FEES AS YET UNACCOUNTED 1 OR. It Is said by one of tlw Committee on Expenditures in the Department of Justice that the appearance of Davenport at Ins lost examination was quite nervous, and ihut he was no: it a clear In his answers to questions propounded bv members of the committee. He diluted at great length on the Iruuds existing in New York city daring the Tweed riyiinr, but when interrogated parti cular y concerning matters since that time he was forced to udtull tliut few or no frauds had boen per petrated. As to his claim to the plan or invention to prevent Iruuds in clectious, be was shown tho clecliou laws ol New York lor 1872.und interrogated whether Hint stntute did not embrace the irderul plan lor which he claimed auch credit, and was compelled to admit tliat such was the case. Attention ts called to the fact that Davenport has not accounted, satisfactorily at least, for tho moneys ho re ceived in the slmpo of foes m his eovoral otliees of hujicrvisor una Commissioner. There Is a balance of $10,OUO or $12.0d0 for the disposal of which it fuller ex planation is required. This matter will doubtless he inquired into bj the cotnmitteo ul his re-examination during the course of the weok. THE MICHIGAN SENATORSHIP?A THREE-SIDED CONTEST FOR THE 8UCCE.HSORSIIIP TO SEN ATOR FERRY?A BATTLE OF FINANCIAL TITANS. Governor Hngloy, of Michigan, Is Iti Washington lor the purpose, it is conjectured, of discussing with his friends in the Michigan delegation in Congress tho chances of his election to the I'tilled States Senate next w titer. His presence here reveals the existence of a three sided contest for the succcssiou to Senator Ferry, whoso term will exptro on tho 4ib of March next. Senator Ferry Is a candidate for re-election, but his claims will bo contested by Gover nor liaglcy, wbilo both of Iheso gentlemen will lu turn have to dispute the ground with Mr. /ach Chandler, Secretary of the Interior. Governor Hagloy is very rich, being a rival tu this respect of Secretary Chand ler, and Senator Ferry is also a wealthy man, so that the sinews ot war will not be wanting to make the (all nominations in Michigan and tho succeeding strugglo lu tnc Legislature a most lively campaign. AN AMUSING BLUNDER BY AN INTERIOR JOUR NALIST?SENATOR THURMAN CHARGED WITH THE SINS OF ANOTHER. What is In u name bus been forcibly Illustrated In the case or Senator Thurman, tu i-oniiectlon with tho Presi dential candidacy. Uno of his frieuds brought in a copy of ono of the journals in the interior, In which, lu double-leaded lilies, he was charged as having been louud guilty by an investigating committee of scllicg cudclships and olllces in the departments. The accusa tions were made against Mr. Purman, Representative train Florida, orginully before a Congressional com mittee; hut, by some strnogo mutatiou, tho jouruul in question double leaded tho news as cororing charges acalust Senator Thurmau as ouc of tho democratic can didates for President, and ho was thus charged with the alleged ollonces of another. It was amusiug to see tho vetcrun statesman walk Into the library of ex-Governor McCortnick, his son-m-law, and, speaking about it play lully, ask him to have It corrected by a contradicting publication in tho press, lie said jocosely:? "I am had enough in the Lord's view, but I don't want to be charged with sins I an* not guilty ot THE MISCHIEF OF DI8PLAC1NO THE COLORED REPRESENTATIVE FROM FLORIDA. The unseating of Walls, the colored republican Con- 1 gressmau lrom Florida, has revived the hopes of the j republicans of carrying that State for their candidates I lor Governor aud President. Tbo lavisn professions of lrtendship for the negro on tho part of the democrats of tho State will be regarded sceptically by the negro 1 when he ltnds his reprrsootatlvo in Congress ejected, ; justly or unjustly. Tho concessions lu Jore. Haralson's | case In Alabama will hardly counteract the mischief of Wall's displacement. CARELESSNESS OF THE COMMITTEES Hi TUB TREATMENT OF OFFICIAL BECOUD8. The fact that the ofUctal records of tho Executive Department of the government, when taken to the Capitol in aucwor to tho subpoenas and requests ot the coinmittcos, have boon suffered to remain in the com mittee rooms over night without proper care or have been entrusted to tbe custody of irresponsible clerks, was ihesubjoct ol discussion at tbo Cabinet meeting day ; bclore yesterday, uud a decision arrived at that tbo com- \ mluoes ought to accept certified copies of such records, I and when they found it convenient and not prejudicial to ' the tntorcsts of llio public service to inspect tho books of tho departmental the department olU,cs. THE MARY MEBBITT SCANDAL SECRETARY j BR1STOW TO APPEAR BEFORE THE COMMITTEE. The Cotnmitteo on Expenditures of the Treasury Department will opcu their batteries to-morrow at tan n'clock, when tho Secretary of the Treasury appears beloru theiu for a heat ing as to the alleged irregular practices involved in the release ol the libelled bark Mary Merrill. GENERAL WASHINGTON DESPATCHES. WaauixoTo*, April 23, 1878. THE FREEDMANS BANK?FRAUDS UNEARTHED BY THE SELECT COMMITTEE?HOW THE MONEY I OP THE WARDS OF THE NATION WAS SQUAN DERED?FINANCIAL OPERATIONS OF PSEUDO | PHILANTHROPISTS. Tie testimony taken secretly by the select com mittee or investigation of the Frcedmon's Savings and Trust Company wus today made public The Investi gation was coinmeu' ed on the 17th uay of January, and the flrxt witness who testified was ex-Postmaster Hen 1 oral Creswetl, one of the Commissioners lor closlug the all airs of the company, which waa largely insolvent, the indebtedness t elng over $3,000,000, and ho loared thev would not be able to realizo more than forty pap cent Irotu the assets, a largo amount of the personal securities a; pcariug to be worthlesa. Mr. Sperry, the Inspector of the Kteedman'a Bank, testified to many discrepancies, one of $-0,000, and that by the employment of additional ex|>ert lorce they were never able to reduce this dlfieronce below $40,000; nothing was know n of the pecuniary responsibility of William J. Wilson and Thomas 8. Boston while dls charging their respective duties aa officer* of tho Wash ington branch, nor was anything kuowu about Wil ton's bond, but Boston's bond was for $3,000, and signed by General O. (>. Howard; no proceeding was instituted by tbe actuary or any olllccr or officers ol the bank to recover from Wilson and Button the de latencies appearing in tlictr accounts as managers of the Washington branch. Much other testimony Is given to snow the ignorant, reck,ess and dishonest management of the bank and Its branches. A new feature in tbe Nencca Stone Company was found. It ap;>ears that the first loan to it was $36,o* 0 and that was paid, ao fur at the books show. About that t uie a loan of $60,000 was made to Hallet Kil bourn and John o. Evan*. Among the collaterals was $76. uu) of tbe Seneca 8 one Company's bonds, but there w<-re other collaterals to make it pecuniarily a good loan. The note for $60,000 did not mature for a year. When It did mature and was not paid the actuary, Colonel Eato*, demanded payment, when tbe parties produced a secret agreement, of which the following is a copy;?, Wa.sIiniitm, D. 0., Nov. 16, 1873 Received of the Aetunrv ol tbe Freedmau s Sa"ings and I'ruet Company the within mentioned securities, with exception of the $76,000 hoida of tho Maryland Freestone Manufacturing and Mining Company,' with the understanding that our note lor ?60,0uu is to be re turned to us ou or before the l*th inst. HaLLKf KlI.BOl'R.V. JOHN O. EV ANS. The actoary was threatened by tbese parties with ?u.is, and, alter some wrangling, he tlnally gave up the note and other papers and retained tbe worthless Seneca bonds. The real nature ol tbe transaction waa tho payment of an old loan by .he new one, and a secret sale of the bonds of the Seneca Stone Company to tbe Freedman's Bank. The secret agreement waa made by a majority of tbe Finance Committee?Che sum. i utile and liuatusstoa. Colonel Saioa bold i $4,000 of the Seneca Stone Company** stock, while he acted as actuary of the bank. It upp< ur? from the testimony that a hard working colored man named John Watkiu* dc|H>*ited nearly $1,000, and out ofthat Boston, who was tho receiving teller at the time, drew $1,050 on lorgcd notes, and Wilson, tlio late oaalner, indorsed two of thorn The bank loaned $33,000 to the Young Men's Chris tlan Joint Stock Company. Tbe Young Men'* Christian A-co< lation owns about $15,0*MJ worth of tbo stock out of I'JOO.OOO worth issued lor the building, which, with the exception above stated, was hold by different par ties. A mortgage, or deed of trust, was given to secure the loan on the property ot the Young Men'* Christian Association. At the time tbo loan wa* mad* it was supposed to be good, aud it would have been good if the tttlo had boeu good. Thi* was ihe testimony of (!. W. Stickle))-, who succeeded Colonol Katon as actuary. > C. B Purvis gave the following tostlnionj-:? Q. Do you know uuytbitig of a transaction between Stickney and ? man named Boyle* A Alty Jay Cooke & Co. (ailed we had in our bank $650,000 ol cur rency sixes aud other bonds, amounting altogether to over $500,000; loaned the run made upon us we had to sell our bonds; tlio trustees met every two or three days and authorized the executive oltleers of tlio bank, the president, with his actuary, to sell bonds, $100,0UJ or so, ut u time; the president went to Sew Y ork to sell somo of the bonds, aud, It seems, without any authority whatever, Mr. Stickney sent Mr. Boyle to Baltimore to sell some of the bonds; this 1 bavc only got lrout our inspector, Mr. Sperry; It wus hard to sell these bonds because they were of $1,C00 denomination; if they had been $100 bonds we could have sold them readily; afterward my father licked me in regard to a loan to Boyle, and I told hitn that wo had never made any such loan; on Inquiring Into it I found that Mr. Slicicney, even wbun wo were in such u state in the bank that we had sold every bond except $500, simply on the pretext that Boyle had done Ihe batik good service had loaned him $21,000, on which we hud no security; on the strength of that I called the trustees together for the purpose of asking them to remove Mr. Sticaney from the trusteeship, which he had acquired under the law of June, 1870; 1 there mentioned the mutter, and Mr. l.eipold contradicted my statement ttiat Stickney had loaned the money in the way 1 have mentioned, but he made this extraordi nary statement, that Mr. Boyle had sold bonds for the bauk at different times, and that every time he had retained some of the mouey, so. that in tbe aggre gate he owod the bank the utnounl of $21,000. and that then, to cover up the transaction, Stickney took this note' from hitn, but put tl In lh* shape ol a loan. Boyle has never rendered any account to tlio liank of the amount of bonds that were put into hi* hands by gtlckney. Of that transaction, howevor, none of th* bank officers proper except Stickney bud any knowl edge. Q. This note of Boyle's, according to Mr. Lelpold's statement, wus given by Boyle to the bunk? A. Y es. y. And Stickney took security for it on a house and lot* A. I believe ho afterward got security on a whole row oi unfinished housos, which houses were encum bered by various kinds of liens, and which houses have been sold since and purchased by Mr. Stickney; the bank nevor roalizod a dollar out of that $21,000 loan and never will. q. Wus there not another loan mad* on representa tions or Mr. Alexander R. Shepherd t A. It appears In the report ortho Commissioners that Mr. Vandcnburgh owes a largo amount; these loans never came directly beloro the Board of Trustees, or, at least, a very lew or them did; the Actuary, in reading hi* report to the Board, wirtild say, "City securities (naming the class), so much investod;" some members of tbe Kinanco committee. Including Moses Kelly, Ihe Sinking Fund Commissioner, wero very earnest in the defence of these securities, and Mr. Kelly Invested largely In that kind of security for his own bauk?the National Bank of the Metropolis;! wis very much opposed to It, as 1 was opposed to everything connected with the Board ol Dublin Works; Mr. Stickney stayed at my house, and, talkiug with me one day, he said be had never done a wrong thing In the bank except lotting Vsndenburglt have a largo sum of money one night; 1 asked him how much; 1 think ho said $30,000; that perlectly astonished me, so 1 "went Into ' him and questioned him very closely, thinking that I would have occasion to recollect It and use It; he said that Vandenburgh came to him wanting sotne money to pay off hit hands that night, and that Shepherd said "Vandenburgh's accounts aro approved(this was on Saturday night); ?'I will pay you on Monday if you lot him have the money;" Stickney said that ho would let him have the money,' and he did let him have It; afterward he went day alter day to see Mr. Shepherd and could uot see hitn; when he did sco him Mr. Shepherd was more forciblo than polite, and told bun that l>o was in a damned hurry to get that money; subso. quently Mr, Shepherd said to him, "If you do business iu that kind of a looso way you are a damned fool," and that he told the truth; tins Is what Mr. Stickney soys about the mutter, and 1 presume he t* to be be lieved on thet point. Q. Who is tlio solicitor of the Commission f A. Mr. F.noch Totlcn; all hough Mr. I.etpold's n .me appears on tho docket as associated with hira in these bank cases, ho never appears in the courts in these suits. Q Then he and Totlcn are associated professionally t A. Ye*, sir. Q. Did not Mr. Totten make a collodion for the bank and oiler tul Mr. l.eipold half of his feet A. I cau only answer that In this way:?Mr. Spcrry came and told me that Mr. l.eipold catno to htm und said, -Totten has otlereu me so much money (1 think $700, or half of what he received), had 1 belter take Itf" "No." said Bperry *-you must not take tt;" Lcipold came <to him subsequently and said that ne did uot tako It, but after thai his name appears with Toiten's; rtperry can swear to these facts; tho only hesitation I have in making this statement is that l.eipold is rather a vindictive man and as Mr. Bjerry is a very poor man I-etpold might remove him; in fnct he has been wanting to re move btin ever since he told him about tins oiler. It further appears that l.eipold sought to buy the bauk books of depositors, after the bank's failure, at a nominal llgurc aud prnctise as an attorney. He tinted to Purvl* that he could then make more money than tbe salary he received as commissioner. As the settle ment of the affairs ol the institution Is practically in tbe hands of Mr. I.e pold. an effort Is being made to have hiro removed, and hence the proposition in the House yesterday, offered by Mr. Bradford, a member of tbo investigating Committee. requiring and authorizing the Secretary of the Treasury to a|fiiolDt, w ithout unneces sary delay, a good and conitieieut man to tako chorg* of and wind up the aCairs of the Frcodmon's Savings und Trust Company. During ihe exlstenco of the Kreedmcn's Back from $60,000,000 to $60,000,000 passed through the principal bank and Its branches. The committee say the failure was from bad manage ment. and the frauds began at the comiuencotucut and continued to the end. UNFOUNDED CHARGES AOA1N8T THE DOOR KKEPER OF THE HOUSE OF r.EPRESENTA TIVK8. Charges of arson against Colonel Klizhugh, door keeper of the House ol Representatives, nre revived both privately aud iu prluL Two indictments were found against him in Kentucky in 1871, alleging nrson, but he was promptly acquitted in both ruses, which were gotten up, as gentlemen ol tho h.ghest respectability assert, either through msllce or under misapprehen sion of the facta Another charge against Colonel Fiutiu'gh is that of attempted bribery while he lived in Texas la?t year. This is as equally without foundation as the Orst. Colonel Fitzhugb has sent forortlcial docu ments and other prools which will show Ins ettiir* luuo ceuce ol the imputed crimes, and. if it shall ap|H?*r to be necessary, ho will ask for the fullest investigation by a committee of the House. TUB ISVKBTIOATIONW ?A PROPOSITION TO CON DUCT THBM WITH OPEN DOORS A resolution has boon prepared by a republican member of tbe Houso to bo oilered toward proposing thai the investigations now in progress shall bo con ducted with open doors. Some democrat* are in lavor of ?uch a measure, as, under the present close arrange ment, there la no (air opportunity to present the plain facts to the country, as one soled statements only ?r* procursive sometimes, s x >r seven of the curamutMs perm it tea representatives of vbw press to be present at the examination*.
