He is undoubtedly insane and should have been in tbe hospital long ago. His mania is of a religious character. .He imagines himself a sort of saviour and feels that the sal vation of the world depends upon him alone. At times he is quite rational and seems to rea lize his crime, but says he had to kill the child to keep his family from starving. Accident in Rockland. Rockland, May 25.—Alfred Scott, a lad of twelve, was very severely and perhaps fatally injured while at play yesterday, by the falling of a piece of lumber, which struck him in his back,Jeansing an Jentire paralysis below the wound.

The naan was nearly perished when taken into the boat and received tbe best of care from Capt. Norton, who arrived here this afternoon. Fire nl Fork . Biddefobd, May 25.—Tbe house of Jonathat K. Plaisted at York was totally consu med by fire last night, together with its contents. The fire caught ou the roof probably from a defec tive chimney.

Nashua, May 25.—The annual meeting o tbe Nashua & Rochester Railroad Company for tbe electiou of officers, took place at City Hall this afternoon. The following gentlemen were elected directors: F. H. Kinnicutt, Wor cester, Mass., F. H. Dewey, Worcester, Mass., Aaron W. Sawyer, Nashua, Dunlap, Nashua, Cbas. H. Watters, Groveton, Mass , J. C. East man, Hampstead, N.

Edmands was paying teller of the Second Na tional Bank of Boston, but the sum of $10,000 was missed from the safe and the consequence was bis quiet discharge from the service of the institution, Aug. 15tb, 1874. The directors be lieved him to be an honest man. but the fact stood that there was a deficiency of $10,000 for which he was responsible. They were content, however, with dropping him, taking no legal action for the recovery of the money. Since the severance of the connection with the bank, Mr. Edmands has been engaged in the book business but, through all, he has been a suspected man. Today his deliverance came in a simple way. His successor in the bank, Mr. Henry O. Pul ler. while eBgagfid at the safe this morning, found the identical bills which had been miss ing for two years, in the safe near the jamb of the door, and in such a position that every time the door was opened they were pushed farther out of sight. Bnse Ball. The finest game of the season took place to day between the Bostons and Cincinnatis. The fielding was so sharp that neither side could score a run till the 10th inning, when the Bostons on four single and one second base hit earned four runs and blanking their oppo nents won the game by 5 to 0. Piper's and Frost's Last Hoars. All tho arrangements are completed for the execution of Piper which takes place at Charles street jail at 10 a. m. tomorrow. The con demned man appears calm and resigned. He professes to have made peace with God and ex presses readiness to die and confidence in Divine forgiveness. His family bade adieu to him this afternoon and the scene is described as an agonizing one. Piper, the coolest of all, bade them be calm and particularly endeavored to calm his mother. He ate his supp er with evident relish and afterward passed the even ing till 10 o’clock with his spiritual Jadviser. The gallows on which he is to be executed has done service for thirty years, being the same on which Prof. Webster was hung. Frost, who is to be hung tomorrow at Wor cester, still possesses the wonderful calm and fortitude which he has shown throughout and shows no symptoms whatever of repentance. He is still deaf to spiritual ministrations. NEW YORK. End of the Lawrence Case. New York, May 25.—The case of Charles L. Lawrence, indicted for complicity in the silk smuggling frauds, came to an abrupt termina tion in the U. S. District Court today. When his case was called, his counsel, Gen. Butler, stated that his client desired to withdraw his p'ea of not guilty, and plead guilty to the in dictment charging him with forging custom house entries, covering substantially ali the charges on which he was indicted. The prisoner was remanded for sentence,and bail was furnished for him. It is probable that the other indictments agaipst Lawrence, some 31) in number, will not be pressed, under in structions from Washington. POLITICAL. Dakota Delegate* to Cincianati.

The Blaine Investigation. Washington, May 25.—The sub-Judiciary Committee investigating the charges against Mr. Blaine reported to the full committee to day the fact that objection was made by Judge Lawrence to the admissability of the question propounded by Hunton to the witness Sickles as to what be heard from any parties in Ar kansas on thej|subject of this inquiry. Mc Crary offered a resolution that the sub commit tee in continuing the investigation should not receive hearsay testimony except to the extent of name and residence of any person alleged to have knowledge ot the matters under examina tion. After considerable discussion this reso lution was defeated by a strict party vote. Mr. Hurd then offered a resolution that the resolu tion of the lull committee authorizing a sub committee to conduct the investigation did not authorize any investigation of the question whether a corrupt use of bonds was made to procure legislation unless it related to the Lit tle Hock and Arkansas bonds, which came in to the possession of the Union Pacific Co. This resolution was agreed to. On motion of Mr. Lynde the committee thereupon resolved that the objection made by Lawrence to Sickles’ answering the question is disputo was well taken and must be sustained. This latter action was understood to be based by the Democratic majority on the ground that the matter referred to in the question is not within the jurisdiction of the committee, it not having been made the subject of enquiry by the resolution of the House. The Republican minority voted for Lynde’s resolution, however, ou the gronod simply that it provided for the exclusion of the same hearsay testimony. D. B. Sickelsof Arkansas testified he had do personal knowledge of any connection of cx Speaker Blaine with the Little Rock & Fort Smith railroad bonds that passed to the posses sion of the Union Pacific Railroad Company, O. A. Hadley of Little Rock gave testimony to the same import. The Legislative Appropriation Bill. The Senate committee on appropriations to day struck out of the legislative appropriation bill which is now under consideration by whom the who'e of the sectiou providing for 10 per cent, reduction of all salaries of clerks in all the executive departments and custom houses. The New Vork Custom House. It is doubtful whether the committee on ways and means will make an investigation into the management of the New York custom house recently ordered by the House of Repre sentatives This no doubt arises from the lateness of the session. Scbeuck’s Beply to Cbeseborough. Schenck has sent to the Committee on For eign Affairs a loug letter in reply to Chesebor ough. He reiterates that when he'arrived in Paris from Italy he heard of the alarming news of the probable stoppage of dividends on the Emma mine. Stilihehad no thought of parting with his shares. The action subse quently taken with Cbeseborough was to guard the interest of Gen. Woodbull, who was biB cousin, and himself. Cbeseborough was fully empowered to act and Schenck says, “He knew my views. During the few days that followed there passed between us several telegrams and letters which I regret I did not preserve. Any way I did net sell 2000 shares as was suggested to me to do, nor any other shares except those wh cb were sold io Woodbull’s name for him and myself by Jay Cooke and McCuulIoch.” Proclamation by the President.

At 12.35 legislative business was suspended and the Sena'e resumed consideration of the impeachment with closed doors. Before reaching any decision at 4 45 the doors were re-opened. The Senate then went into executive session, and after a short time adjourned until to mor row. HOUSE. On motion of Mr. Cox the Senate amend ment to bill authorizing tbe appointment of re ceivers of the national banks were concurred in. House then went into committee of the whole on the bill revising and simplifying exiitiDg iaws, imposing duties on imports and to reduce taxation. Mr. Morrison addressed the committee in ex planation of the bill. After speeches on tbe tariff question by Mor rison and Burchard of Illinois, the report of the Committee on Foreign Affairs on the Em ma mine investigation was presented by Mr. Hewitt of New York, who proceeded to address the House. The report is very lengthy, a large part of it being composed of comments upon the testi mony. The following is the summing up. The committee find as to the inquiries announced at the beginning of the report: First—Upon the authority of the despatch of the Secretary of State, that it was not proper for the American Minister at the Court of St. James to connect himself as a director with the Emma Mining Company of London. This position is confirmed by the authority of Phil limore (vol. 2, page 194,) who says: “In truth, every state ought by expressly forbidding am bassadors to combine engagements in private trade or commerce with the sacred duty of rep resentation, to prevent any question of the kind ever arising. The Roman law on this point ought to be imitated.” Second—That the relations of Gen. Scbenck to the venders of the Emma mine were of such a character as to cast suspicion upon his mo tives and subject his action to unfavorable crit icism. But the committee believe he wus not guilty of a fraud or of aoy fraudulent inten tion in connection with the company or the venders of the mine. Third—That his subsequent speculative deal ings in the shares of the company were not compatible with his diplomatic station and the maintenance of a position of honor and use fulness at the court near which he was accred ited. Tbe committee therefore submit the follow ing resolution and unanimously recommend its passage by the House: Besolved, That this House condemns the ac tion of Gen. Robert C. Schenck, U. S. Minister at the Court of St. James, in becoming a direc tor of the Emma Silver Mining Company of London, and bis operations in connection with the shares of said company and the venders thereof as,ill-advised, unfortunate and incom patible with the duties cf his official position. The report went over till tomorrow, and Mr. Hendee. a member of the Committee on tbe District of Columbia, presented to the House as a privileged question, the fact of clandestine procurement of report which the chairman of that committee had prepared, and of its publi cation. As that paper had pone to the country as the report of the committee, he declared that no report had been agreed upon and had not even been discussed for more than an hour. Hp nffproH rt roanltitinn inofruntinn Committee to inquire as to the manner in which the copy of that paper had been obtained for publication, and by whom and from whom it was obtained. House then adjourned. Michigan Soldiers and Sailors. Detroit, May 25.—The sixth annual re union of the Michigan soldiers and sailors was a grand success. Buildings were profusely decorated and the procession was quite impos ing. The banquet took place in the evening. FOREIGN. GREAT BRITAIN. Financial Effect of Ihe Eastern Questions London, May 25.—Uneasiness regarding the ■ Eastern question is affecting securities. Egyp tian bonds today are at the lowest point yet touched. The firmness of late discount is at tributable to the same cause, bankers prefer ring loss of business to the risk of locking up money for a considerable period, in a time of such uncertainty and uneasiness. The supply of money available for short loans is very large, and not in demand at any price. Another Arctic Voyage. The steamer Pandora has been refitted for another voyage to Smith’s Sound, to bring to England auy despatches which may have been deposited there by Capt. More’s Arctic expedi tion. She left Portsmouth today and sails for her final destination on Saturday from Cowes. Why England Bejected the Berlin Pro posal. The press comment favorably upon the atti tude of the government towards the Berlin conference. A despatch from Vienna says that England's note relating to the memorandum agreed upon by the three chancellors, assigned as reasons for her refusal to accede thereto, that the powers were substantially agreed that the original note of Andrassy went as far as it could without the infringment of the Porte’s sovereignty; that sufficient time has not been allowed for the execution of the accepted re forms; that Montenegro’s breaches of neutral ity had prevented the pacification which the powers considered necessary to the execution of reforms; that the proposed military disposi tion of the Turks aud insurgents seems to Eng land a premium for the renewed hostilities; that the gigantic system of gratuitous relief pro posed to be beyond Turkey’s ability to grant and seriously destructive of morality, thrifti ness and industry of the people: that the pro posal to take more effectual measures at the end of a two months’ armistice is sufficient en couragement to the insurgents to continue the rebellion and an inducement to Montenegro to persevere in her breaches of neutrality, hoping thereby to obtain accession of territory, and that the proposal to bring war ships into the Dardanelles amounts to a proposal to vitiate the treaty of 1856, and is directly contrary to the long established custom of preventing vessels of war passing these straits. The Pall Mall Gazette accepts the foregoing as a correct indication of England's reasons for refusal to say it is a reply with which there is every reason to be satisfied.
