Political News. The New York Tribune says that Don Cameron hail no idea he was a man of so much influence till ho read the returns from the Western Conventions. {Even yet he doesn’t quite see how he did it. The Rochester Express: Some one has said that Governor Tilden is popular at the South. Well, he ought to be popular there, if anywhere. The South was popular with him—during the rebellion. Some enthusiastic Bristow men lately re ported that Bristow clubs had been started at Augusta and other places in Maine, but the Kennebec Journal has been looking around and can’t find them, and rather guesses they are an imaginary quantity. The New York Evening Post remarks that “whatever the Democratic leaders mean to do about a hard-money candidate it is becoming more and more probable that they do not intend to have a hard-maney national platform.” The Augusta (Ga.) Chronicle has this as sertion: “With a single exception every Slate which has instructed its delegates to vote for Tilden is conceded to the Radicals x.. "■ntion is New York, and New York will go Radical if Tilden is nominated.” With a good deal of confidence, the Mil waukee Sentinel makes the assertion that two-thirds of the Democrats of Wisconsin are opposed to the Resumption act. and that nearly the same proportion are soft-money men with all that term implies. The Lowell (Mass.) Courier sees that the Republican party is gradually eliminating the soft-money heretics from its ranks, and says that in New England especially no man who is anything but an out and out hard-money man can expect to carry the standard of the party. The New York Mail: The practical ques tion is as to the agencies and methods by which Reform is to be carried out. We rec ollect that a “tidal wave” of Reform swept over the land two years ago, and the present House of Representatives is the result. We have had enough of that sort of Reform. The Indianapolis Sentinel says that its editor has been shown by the proprietor of one of the leading weekly papers in Indiana a communication from a New York adver tising agency, in which editorials from lead ing papers favoring Tilden are sought to be reproduced as reading matter for the pay ment of a stipulated sum of monev. from now until the convention.

May 28.—The latest developments in the Foster murder case have been carefully fol lowed up by Detective Sargent, assisted by C. F. Rowell of Keene. The suicide theory is discredited, and the affair is as great a mystery as ever. The clerk at Walpole who sold the chloroform was confident the bottle found was the one which be filled, and traces of a drug gist’s label on the bottle correspond with those used at that place. He was carefully examin ed, and his description of the customer was not like Foster, and in being shown Foster’s picture was positive he had never seen him. The woman Cram, who is or affects to have been greatly infatuated with Foster, appears to have been intimate with him but a compara tively short time, and his mode of living does not indicate that much money has been squan dered by her. She claims her intimacy with Foster was not disreputable, but purely a case of true love. NEW YORK. Pursuing Secretary Robeson. New York, May 28.—Some 1400 pounds of old telegrams recently disposed of as waste pa per by the Atlantic & Pacific Telegraph Co., were yesterday obtained by a Congressional official, and go to Washington for the use of the House Naval Committee. They are said to contain the original telegrams of A. G. Cattell and George M. Robeson, as individual and as Secretary, Jay Cooke, McCulloch & Co., and individual members of that firm during the months of September and October. 1873. Reduction in Rate*. The New York Central & Hudson River Rail road will reduce their passenger rates tomorrow to the following figures: New York and Chica go, from $25 to $17; New York and Cincin nati $15; New York and Indianapolis $1G; New York and St. Louis $22; New York and Louis ville $19; New York and Detroit $13. It is un derstood the rate to Boston via Albany is one dollar more than the above rates. The alleged reason for the reduction is the rival lines out of Boston have been running first class passen gers on emigrant tickets to the detriment of Boston and Albany travel. A similac reduc tion has been ordered by the Pacific road. The Erie company has made a still further reduction in passenger fares to the West, to take effect tomorrow. The new rates being in each case one dollar less than those announced by other,roads, viz.: Chicago $1H, Cincinnati $14, Indianapolis $15, St. Louis $21, Louisville $18, Detroit $12, Cleveland $11. Rates to Buf falo and Niagara Falls are also reduced to $8. nETEOKOLOtilCAL. PROBABILITIES TOR THE NEXT TWENTY FOUR , HOCKS. War Dep’t, Office Chief Signal) Officer, Washington, D.C., J May 29, (1 A.

Mr. Blaine and the North ern Pacific. Another Unsuccessful Attempt to Smirch His Character, A Prompt nud Satisfactory Expla nation. New York, May 27.—A letter D printed here from J. G. Blaine, dated Augusta, Me., Nov. 25th, 1870, informing Warren Fisher. Jr., how the latter could purchase an interest in the Northern Pacific Railroad. As Mr. Blaine could not purchase any himself, Fisher with others bought 825,000 worth of stock, for which Blaine, in trust, gave him a receipt Dec. 1, 1871. A year afterward, Fisher informs Elisha At kins, who went into the speculation with him, how to address Blaine to getthp money return ed. The information is furnished by Aquila Adams, under the date of Boston, Massachu setts, May 25th, 1870, who says he also invest ed 85000, but received his money hack from Blaine. Washington, May 27.—Ex-Speaker Blaine in reply to inquiries today said: Some six or seven years ago some friends of mine in Boston desired to make a small invest ment in the NorthemPacific enterprise, and as the vice president of the road, Hon. R. D. Rice, was a near neighbor of miue in Augusta, it was thought I might find out how and where the purchase conld be made. In one or two instances I heardjof interests being for sale,but nothing was done. Finally in the autumn of 1870 a definite interest was for sale, and it was brought to my attention with glowing and extravagant accounts of its prospective prof its. As it was a road chartered by Congress, de riving its franchise and grants directly from Congress, and liable at any time to apply to Congress for future favors, I did not myself en tertain for a moment the idea of becoming in terested in it, but as these friends had been wishing such an investment and they had the right as aD.y other private citizen to own in the enterprise I communicated the facts to them precisely as they had been given to me. A few days after I was notified that they would be glad to purchase, and a certificate of deposit or cashier’s check for 825,000 was placed in my hands, in trust, as the receipts show, to hand over to a person proposing to sell, who in due time, will doubtless speak for himself. The certificate was to be taken in the name of Eli sha Atkins, oue of the most prominent and honorable merchants in Boston. It was soon found, however, that the North ern Pacific interest was in some way pledged or hypothecated or embarrassed as to title, and matter ran along for over a year, and finally came to nothing. The money in full, with in terest, was returned to Mr. Warren Fisher,with whom negotiations was had, and the holder of the Northern Pacific interest retained it, or possibly, found another purchaser, of which I know nothing. This is simply the whole of a transaction out of which a sensation is attempted. My con nection with it was purely of a friendly oharac W- a I -»- uau uuu VUVJ lotuuicoi/ 1II LOI CBli III J L [[] any shape or form, and no intention or under standing that I should become interested in it. The transaction was, of course, regarded by me as in every way proper; otherwise I should most certainly never have received and receipt ed for the money to hold in trust until the transaction should bo consumated between the parties. “I am very glad”, continued|Mr, Blaine, “that my letter, which the Sun publishes, proves on its face that I would not myself touch the investment. I could easily have pur chased it had I been willing, but I did not deem Buch investment advisable for me to make. From first to last, in all the legislation touch ing Pacific railroads, I never had an interest of a penny in one of them, nor in any of their branches directly or indirectly. In a private letter, if anywhere, a man will speak unregard edly, and this letter, written with no expecta tion of its ever being published, proves conclu sively that when a Pacific railroad was offered me with brilliant promises of great profits, I declared that I could not touch it. I think the Sun, in publishing this private letter, has sup plied a valuable proof of my official integrity in the matter.” ‘tA.ll these attacks,” resumed Mr. Blaine af ter a slight pause, “are intended to impress the people with the belief that I have large wealth, and that it has been acauired since I eutered Congress.” The moderate property which I own wasjal most wholly derived from fortunate investment in coal lands in my native Monongahela valley in Pennsylvania, made some years before I first ran for Congress. I notice many papers whose editors never saw me, and know nothing of my affairs, glibly put my property down at a round million. The utmost my property would bring today would not amount to a fiftu part of that sum. I can say with the strictest truth that all things considered, I am not today as well off pecuniarily as I was the day I entered Congress, in December, 18G3. Had I not re mained in Congress I would today, in my judg ment, have had a large fortune, as business en terprises which were at my command, if I couldjhave attended to them have resulted most favorably. But every friend who knows me knows that neither my iucome nor my expenditures, nor my habits of life imply or suggest the possession of a fortune, or of anything indeed beyond a moderate competen cy. *_ WASHINGTON. A Charge against Speaker Kerr. New York, May 27.—The Herald says Cly mer’s committee is about to investigate the statement that A. S. Green was made a lieu tenant in the regular army by President John son at the request of Mr. Kerr, now Speaker of the House, and that Green was introduced to Mr. Kerr by doorkeeper Lawrence Harney, to whom Green paid 8GOO. Harney states that he paid Kerr for having Green commissioned. naruey is now employed in rue appraiser s office in New York city, and the matter is op ened to-day in Washington. The committee this afternoon examined in secret A. P. Green relative to the charge against Speaker Kerr. He merely confirmed the state ment already published that he expressed to Lawrence Harney his desire to obtain a com mission in the army, and that Harney said it would cost money and arranged an interview with Kerr, through whose influence a commis sion was obtained. Green also testified that he paid Harney $G00 for his services, but be yond this he knew nothing. Speaker Kerr does not seem to be disturbed about the mat ter. The Nnral Investigation. Washington, May 27—Members of the House committee on naval affairs say they have only two more witnesses to summon be fore they complete the testimony in their in vestigations, namely, Secretary Robeson and Admiral Porter. The Secretary has not yet, however, signified his intention to appear as the committee have not complied with his re quest to conduct the examination with open doors. Senate Amendments to the Legislative Appropriation Bill. The Senate committee on appropriations made over a thousaod amendments to the leg islative appropriation bill. Among them are the following. Clause reducing the compensation of Con gressmen stricken out, leaving the compensa tion $5000; salaries of various clerks and other employes of the Senate and House restored; providing that the architect of the capital shall have the care of the building instead of the Commissioner of Public Buildings. Another amendment appropriates $15,114 for compen sation of the Congressional printer and clerks and messengers in his office, and $2500 for con tingent expences; compensation of Libraiian of Congress restored to $4000. The House in serted a provision that from and after March 4th, 1877, the salary of the President shall he $25,000, but the Senate committee struck it out leaving the compensation $50,000. The appro priations for various departments are restored and increased. The Alaska Company The sub-committee on ways and means has prepared a report on the testimony taken con cerning the Alaska Commercial Company, and the manner in which it obtained a lease of the Fur Sea islands. They arrived to the conclu sion that Secretary Boutwell’s award of the lease was properly made and that it should be sustained. The report was prepared by Fer uuuuv/ m uuu uu\* u j i ill, auu Olf^UCU cklBU UJ Burchard, Kelley and Chapin. It exonerates the Treasury department and the company in very emphatic terms from all charges of im proper conduct, fraud or mismanagement. Secretary Robeson again Demands n Hearing. Secretary Robeson has written in reply to the recent letter of Mr. Whitthorn, chairman of the House Committee on Naval Affairs, as fol lows: May, 27,1876. Hon. W. C. Whittborne, Chairman of Com mittee on Naval Affairs, House of Represen tatives. S.ir:—Your letter of the 24th inst. has been received. In reply I beg to say that the de mand to be heard contained in my letter was founded upon the reasons therein fully and spe cifically stated; that said demand was not made in response to the resolution of your committee which you say was adopted on the 17th inst., “as a mere formal expression of the purpose entertained by them from the institution of the investigation, if such a course should become necessary,” for the very conclusive reason that that resolution had not been made public, and was, of course, unknown to me. Nor am I even now advised that the terms of said reso lution apply to myself, because I have never iniormed that lam implicated by any proof taken before tbo committee, and because, as I can learn, of alii the witnesses examined in se cret by your committee (more than 500 in num ber) not one has been found bold enough to say a single word against my personal honor and good faith. But Eot being willing to stand upon any question of feeling or ceremony in this matter and knowing that any attempt to give to my appearance before your committee a different character from that whicli properly belongs to it will fail in the judgment ot a fair minded public, I hereby reDew my demand for a speedy hearing in justification of every matter charged and in refutation of every false inference that can possibly be made, and 1 desire that the committee will be pleased at as early a day as possible to fix the time and place where such hearing can he had, I also again call the atten tion of the committee to the other demand of my letter to which no reply is made in your’s, namely, that this bearing shall be had in open session of the committee, and I beg hereby to repeat that drmand. I regard to the additional resolution recited in your letter, saying in effect that permission will be given to any officer in the Navy Depart ment to have re-examined “any witness whose testimony may effect his,” I confess that I fail to see the value of such permission while such officer is kept iu ignorance of the points upon which he is supposed to be affected and even 1 of tbe names of the witnesses who have testi* 1 fied upon them. Again calling the attention of your committee to these matters and suggest ing that a disregard of them is a disregard of the ordinary rights of an American citizen, I i still await the action of your committee. i Your obedieht servant, i George M. Robeson, Secretary of Navy. Fort} •Fourth Congress—First Session ' SENATE. Washington, D. C., May 27. Senate resumed the consideration of the im peachment question with closed doors. It was decided to vote on the pending question Mon day. At 6.23 the doors were reopened and the pres ident pro tern, announced Mr. Patterson as member of the board of visitors to West Point in place of Clayton excused.

Bill to reduce expenditures for public adver tising in the District of Columbia was passed. Bill to promote efficiency in the army, to pro vide for the gradual reduction and to consoli date certain of its staff departments was taken up. It reduces the cavalry regiments to eight and the infantry to twenty, and provides the reduction be made by merging enlisted men into other organizations. It repeals the law requiring enlisted men of certain regiments to be colored men. It abolishes regimental organ izations of artillery, and provides it be known as corps of artillery, to consist of live batteries of light artillery and fifty-five batteries of ar tillery, one chief of artillery with the rank of brigadier general, 2 colonels, 4 lieut.-colonels, six majors, GO captains, 120 first lieutenants, and 62 second lieutenants.

Section 10 provides for the merging of the quartermasters’ and subsistence departments into one organi zation, to be kuown as the department of sup plies. Section 22 provides the headquarters of the army shall in time of peace be at Washing ton. Mr. Banning, chairman of the Military Af fairs Committe, reviewed the bill in det ail, and explained and justified the proposed reductions. Mr. Hurlburt spoke against the bill, and characterized some of the statements made by Banning as gross and extravagant exaggera tions. He intended to offer a substitute to take into consideration the question of the reorgan ization of the army, to report next session. He gave it as his opinion that this country ought iu uavo au aimj auiij uuibcicu, ut uui less liiiau thirty thousand men. On a preliminary vote there was no quorum voting. Mr. Hurlburt then suggested the bill be re ferred to the committee of the whole and set dowu for discussion and action Wednesday next, to which proposition Mr. Banning, who had charge of the bill, declined to acaede. Thereupon a motion to adjourn was made by Mr. MacDongall, and this was followed by oth er dilatory motions. Fillibustering was kept up until finally, on motion from the Democratic side the House adjourned. Crimes anil Casualties. James Dodmouth of New York, aged GO, murdered his wife Friday night.

New York Stock and money market. New York, May 27.—The warlike aspect of for iign advices this morning advanced the gold pro mum to 113, a rise of 1 per cent, over last night’s >rice. The news had no effect upon the stock mark it of a depressing nature, and the general list of secu ities was strong, and in some cases higher. According to the first London tele-Sram received here was a decline in British funds of about * per cut., but later there was a recovery of * per cent. Iflie greatest decline was in 10-40 bonds, which fell iltogether one per cent, in the British market, and n new 5s, which lell J per cent., afterwards reacting [ per cent. The American 5-20s of 1865 and 1867 did lot share in the decline and were reported steaJy at >revious quotations. On the first call Michigan Central was strong, and ulvanced to 47 upon the reported appointment of Jr. Sloau to succeed Joy as president of the road. Western Union was firmer at 66|. It is reported Mr. f>rton has resigned his position as president of the Western Union Company, and it is thought A. B. Cornell, first vice president, will succeed to the pres dency. Eries were heavy upon a fall of l per cent, abroad. \t noon the stock market was dull and steady. Gold ivas quoted at 113. The market for Government >onds was generally steady; where change there was i slight decline. The Chicago markets were tele graphed about *c lower for wheat at 107* tor Juno lelivery, and 1078 for July- Corn was weak at 432 for June and 44§ for July delivery. The city banks weekly statement is again a favora ble showing. The reserves have increased $2,323,500, ind the amount of funds now in vault is in excess of legal requirements to the extent ot $14,414,225, The stock market was weak and heavy this after noon, being considerably affected by sensational des patches from Europe in regard to the depression arising from the disturbed political affairs. The Lon don Globe, not the very best authority, is reported to have publshed the statement that affairs at the Brit ish Stock Exchange are but little better than in a state of panic, and that the Rothschilds have recent ly sold consols to the extent of a million pounds sterling. There were also rumors current in Wall street again that Commodore Vanderbilt was much worse, hut this report was denied. Lake Shore fell to 52, Western Union fell to 65*, Michigan Central sold down to 46, St Paul sold at 36J and Northwestern at 39*.
