:i >AILY PRESS. PORTLAND. !i.iUU-(ta.iy Morning, Detember 8, 1866. KeleftM* of llit IIiifiler.-,, ol Vlnitie Sol diem. At I lie caucus ol Republican members of C ingress held in Washington Wednesday t iming, it was agreed to raise a special com mittee to investigate the release of the nuir ilerevs of Maine soldiers in South Carolina.— ’l'uese soldiers were Corporal M. C. Corbett and Privates Emory Smith and Mason Browu, all of the First Maine Veteran Volunteers.— The murdei was committed on the night o* Sunday, October 8, 1865, at Brown’s Fer ry, on Ihe savannah river. The parties im plicated were James Crawford Keys, Robert Keys, his son, Elisha Byreui and F. G. Stow c-s. They were arrested by the military authorities and brought to trial before a mili tary commission. The facts proved on the triai were these.—• The ollicers of the Treasury Department had taken possession of fifteen bales of cotton ly ing at the Ferry and put them in charge ol W.P. Brown, the owner of the ferry, who lived a few rods distant. The cotton was claimed by the- elder Keys, lyho had engaged Stowess to carry it by boat to Savannah. On the Fri day before the murder Stowess informed Brown that the cotton was about to be taken away, and advised him to turn it over to the military authorities and relieve himself of all responsibility for it. Browu thereupon noti fied tire military authorities of the intended removal, and the three soldiers were at once sent to the Ferry. Stowess’s trip to Savan nah was accordingly postponed, on the plea that his steersman was sick. At about 11 o’clock “unduy night lire men passed the ten y gate, in the direction ot the liver. They were seen by Brown and hi: as sistant, named Howell, to go the terry, where an altercation at once began between them and the guard. A voice, identified as Stow ess’s, was heard ordering the guard to lay down their arms. On the soldier.-, replying that they were acting under orders which they must obey , the answer was heard, '“God damn you, we have come to throw you into the river,’ followed by the sharp report of fire-arms, and prestntly the same party oi five men came back past the terry house, three of them riding the soldiers horses. The moon had been up for two hours. Brown swore that he i^yognized Crawlord Keys and Stow 03?. Howe# recognized Keys, his two sous Robert and Peter, Byrem and StowesB. Pe ter Keys, who kept out of the way and was never arrested, ordered Howell back to bed. The next morning the bodies ot our Maine boys, so needlessly, so atrociously assassinated, were found in the rivetva rod or two from the shore, by a detail of soldiers. Each h^d been shot through the head,' two with wounds tliat must have caused immediate death; the third evidently having been drowned after receiving his wound. The hair of each was scorched, showing that the pistols had been discharged close to their heads. The defense set up for the four assassins who were apprehended, was an alibi which proved an utter failure. Every circumstance of their actions riming the day, their meeting and consulting together, their absence from borne at the time of the murder, ail tallied perfectly with the direct and po3 itive testimo ny of Brown and Howell, who were old resi dents of the district aud perfectly familiar with the voices and faces of their neighbors. On the morning after the murder 3towess was proved to have toid his negro servants that the soldiers had been killed; that they would probably all be arrested; aud that ii questioned about htm they must say that they had seen him at home at 11 o’cloek the night before, and had cot tome brandy from him. This was prove! to be false, and further he made uo attempt to show how he obtained his information. The lour prisoners were all found guilty by the commission and sentenc ed to be hanged. This sentence was com muted by Gen. Sickles, in the cases of Byrem aud Robert Keys, in accordance with the re commendation of the commission, on ac count of thc-ir youth, to imprison meat lor life. The two others were ordered to be ex ecuted on the 27th April I860. At this point President Job nson intervened. At the solicitation of the friends of the pris oners, he sent a telegraphic: order on the 04th April, suspending the execution of the sen tence. Afterwards the President commuted the sentence to imprisonment for life, and the four prisoners were sent to ( astle Pinck ney for confinement. Subsequently they were removed to Fort Delaware, from which they have recently been taken on a writ of habeas corpus issued by Judge Hall, and are now at large. It is understood that the removal of the scoundrels was deliberately made tor the purpose of bringing them within the jurisdic tion of the Delaware judge, whose ’‘Conserva tism'’ was rightly regarded as a sufficient guaranty for their release. The disgraceful nature of this transaction is not \ et fully exposed. We have related the facts as they appear on the surface, shocking enough so, but not so black as the rumors which Cougress is called upon to investigate A correspondent of the Cincinnati Gazette, writing from Washington under the date of November 28, say3,— There were two principal actors in the mat ter. One was Wm. H. Trescott, of Soutli Carolina, whose presence here some months since will be remembered, who was paid by the wealthy prisoners to work up their case with bis friend, the President, who had grant ed him a pardon. Tire second ot these advo cates then steps in, in the person of Hon. O. H. Browning, then a claim agent or pardon broker, in Washington, since Secretary of the Interior, and then, also, the dispenser of much of the Government patronage squandered in the late attempts to create a Johnson party. Mr. Browning was re tained in the case, and prepared an argument which he read to the President. Principally through the efforts of these two, the prisoners were brought from Castle Pinckney to Fort Delaware, preparato ry to their release. The amount of money which has passed in this case is known to iiave been very great, though the exact figures cannot of course be obtained. It has been stated by a party who could hardly be mistaken, that one of the chief brokers received 916,000, a- a retaining fee alone, and that $50000 in all has been paid to secure the release. So far as Mr. Browning was connected with the case, his services began before he was Sec retary, although the case has but just been de cided This Trescott is the man who as a promi nent office-holder under Buchanan,played the spy in the Rebel interest till he was compelled to leave the office he disgraced--a fit advocate for fit clients. Mr. Browniug conspired with him, it is alleged, to set at liberty these con victed murderers, and the President of the United States connived at their plot. The blood of our poor boys, swantonly spilled, cries from the gronnd. Congress does well to investigate a case so unspeakably infamous. Slavkby ix Brazil.—The new edition of ‘ Brazil and the Brazilians.” just published, has been so thoroughly revised and enlarged as to give a complete view of the condition of the empire at the present time. The most impor tant point in the later history of Brazil is the gradual decay of the slave syst* m; attribut able, in part, to the suppression of the slave trade in 1850, bnt in a greater degree to eman cipation by will, to the purchase of freedom, and to tho liberation of negroes taken from captured slave vessels and apprenticed for terms of fourteen years. The operation of these causes has produced a marked change in the condition of the blacks during the past twen ty years, and the highest estimates do not now include more than two million slaves among the population of the empire; the total decrease since 1850 being at least one million. “Slavery.” says Mr. Fletcher, “is now mostly confined to the central scacoast provinces:’’ and in anoth er passage he remarks that “slavery is doomed in Brazil.” IomHllMiftHt * nf Inlfrn8| ftrrmNr. Mr. Rollins recommends but <bw chatigeB in * the revenue la*s, and a good phrt of the?? look mainly to relief from proviriQUH "'hose Atlva||* tage to the revenue do not counterbalance their inconvenience aud annoyance to the public.— His suggestions are,— 1. To require returns for the annual list on the tiist Monday in March, instead of May, and to make the tax payable on the 30th day of April, instead of June. 2. To substitute for the 10 per cent, penalty of non-payment of taxes on or before a certain day, a more reasonable penalty of live per cent, for neglect or refusal, anil interest at the rate ot 12 per cent, pci annum iroin the time when tile tax becomes payable. 3. That imprisonment for evasion of the special tax of I be act of July 1:1, l«tiT., except of distillers, rectifiers, aud manufacturers of tobacco, snuff, aud cigars, and dealers in li quors, i>e abolished, and that the minimum fine for failure or evasion of payment be fixed at ton dollars. With this change, relief by posi tive enactment should he given certain classes of persons against whom it lias never been deemed necessary or just to enforce the penial provisions oi the statute. 1. To add to the list of articles which persons 'are authorized to peddle without payment of special tax, fruits, vegetables, pies, cakes, and con Ice,tinner v when sold by persons oil loot, l Inis protecting many poor women aud chil dren striviug to earn a livelihood, and who, in numerous instances, have boqn .subjected to anxiety and cost. 5. To tax liquor dealers, butchers, plumbers and gas-fitters uniformly as wholesale dealers are now taxed, when their annual sales exceed $23,000, and to remove the limit iu quantity for retail liquor dealers. ' 6. To increase the compensation of assistant assessors, and take away the present allowance for rent. t. Ao autuonzc uie collectors loiuicrcuauge the inspectors of the several distilleries within their districts at pleasure, so that several per sons may from time to time, and at irregular intervals, have charge of each distillery, thus to some extent testing the faithfulness of each other, while together they may prevent the consummation of frauds by the manufacturer. 8. To impose, as under the law of March 3, I860, a uniform tax ot ten dollars a thousand upon all domestic cigars. 9. To subject manufacturers 01 turpentine to all the provisions of law in relation to bonds, warehouses, and drawbacks to which coal oil distillers are subject. • 10, That as a solicitor is now employed in the Commissioner’s office, the docket of internal revenue suits should be transferred to bi3 keep ing, and that the Commissioner should be charged with the custody of reai estate pur chased for the United States sales upon dis traint under the internal revenue law. 11. That stamp duties upon conveyances be measured by the consideration, or the value of the property above the incumbrance; and upon a 1 power of attorney for any purpose, be uniform- I ly 50 cents. 12. That the penalty for neglect to stamp a written instrument be graduated to the amount of delinquency; and that assessors be author ized to decree forfeiture of unstamped proprie tary and other articles improperly exposed for sale. 13. That authority be granted to the States lately in insurrection, to assume the direct tax apportioned to them. 14. That one thousand dollars be exempted nom the income tax, instead of six hundred as now provided. Some minor modifications, it is intimated, will be submitted to the consideration of the proper committees, when the revenue bill :omes up. . - Hcpoi-t of the Coiaplrollei' of the Currency. The whole number of banks organized under the National Currency act, is 1663. Of these 16 have closed or are closing, leaving 1647 in actual operation. The aggregate capital paid in is 8417,345,154; bonds deposited, #332,467,700; circulation issued, $292,671,753. The acting Comptroller recommends an increase .f the National Currency to meet the wants of the Southern States, but would have this increase limited so as not to exceed the diminution of the. currency by the withdrawal of legal ten ders. On the use of the United States notes for a permanent currency, Mr. IXulburd says: It is frequently and slrenoufly urged that the government should keep its notes in circu lation, and thus have the use of so much money without interest. It is proposed very briefly to consider this question. United States notes originated in the necessities of the government, not in the necessities ot trade and commerce. Their amount was regulated, not by the business ne cessities of the country,but by th# necessities ol a great emergency, and was only limited hy reaching Ihe maximum of expenditure during a time of war. The amount issued was entire ly arbitrary so far as the business interests of the country are concerned, and altogether in excess of the demands of trade, as is evident by the high prices borne liy every kind of com modity, and from the surplus of mouey sub ject to the control of speculator- This curren cy cannot contract or expand from natural causes, It was issued to save the country trom bankruptcy during a protracted struggle with armed rebellion, and can only be contracted bv legal enactment of Congress. There is no element about it in sympathy with the commer cial and industrial interests of the country. The power of issuing notes to circulate as money is too dangerous to be placed at the mercy of political parties in a government like ours, and is fraught with possibilities of cor ruption and disaster calculated to excite the gravest apprehension iu the minds of prudent men. Having served the purpose for which it was called into existence, provision should be made for its withdrawal. On the other hand, hanks are in direct sym pathy with trade, dependent upon it for tueir profits; they meet its wants by discounts and by furnishing a.circulating medium; if cur rency is issued in excess ni" the demand, it is immediately returned for redemption, and contracts and expands as trade requires. Ill a word, hanks are amenable to the laws of trade, while the government issues arp not. The only amendments suggested to the pres ent act are designed to give greater power to the Comptroller to compel obedience in cases of persistent neglect or wilful disregard of the law, on the part ot the banks. trw Publication*. juvenile works.
