BY TELEGRAPH. MATTERS IN MAINE. Annual Merlins of Ibe Portland, Saco A Portsmouth Railroad Company. Portsmouth, N. H., June 5.—The annual melting of the Portland, Saco & Portsmouth Railroad was held at the company’s hall at Kit' tery this morning, President Wooldredge call ing the meeting to order at 11.30, and after reading the records of the last meeting, the President read the report of the directors to the stockholders, which showed that the future div. idends are to be three per cent, semi-annually, and the Eastern is to pay all taxes. The report gives a statement of earnings or other statis tics and states that the claim of the Boston & Maine is without validity, and recommends that the amount of mortgage be $500,000. A stockholder wanted to know if this mort gage was to aid the Eastern road, and proposed a committee to nominate a ticket for directors and also inquired if the present lease of the road is legal. The President replied that he was advised that it was legal and ex-Gov. Goodwin then ex plained why $500,000 were asked for. The motion for the appointment of a commit' tee was suspended and the report of the direc tors accepted, after which the committee was appointed. Mr. Thnrndikeoffered a resolution authorizing the isrue of $500,000 in six per cent bonds, se cured by mortgage to three trustees, to run for twenty years, to pay all the outstanding liabili ties and to provide funds for contingencies. The meeting then proceeded to ballot for di rectors, and the resolutions authorizing this . issue of bonds were then passed. A stock vote was demanded and a committee was appoi nted to receive the votes, which resulted in 2270 in the affirmative and 162 in the negative. The state of the ballot was as follows: S. Lo* tbrop Thorndike 2597, John B. Brown 2587, Charles E. Barrett 2596, George E. B. Jackson 2538, Nathaniel Hooper 1927, William H. Y. Hackett 1927, Samuel C. Lawrence 2591, Chas. J.

Elmira, Jnne 5.—There was a terrific rain and wind storm at Starkey, Yates county, on Saturday. Trees were blown down, telegraph poles upset, a number of barns unroofed and thrown over, and two dwelling houses demol ished. The Presbyterian church at Edgtown was unroofed and three Methodist church steeples at North Hector were blown off. The storm was about 2J miles wide and lasted three quarters of an hour. There was no loss of life. THE KERR INVESTIGATION. Attempt Impeach tlic Character of Harney. Washington, June 5.—The committee today continued the investigation into the charge against Mr. Kerr. > Testimony of Mary Murray. Mary T. Murray testified that she has been tesiding on Capitol Hill since 1805, and has kept boarders there. In December, 1805, Law rence Harney fa ired a room at her house, and in 1866 he also had a room there with his wife and they both took their meals there. Danford raised a point as to how far the com mittee would go into this part of the matter, taking the ground that the witness could not be contradicted on an immaterial or a collateral question. Elliott, counsel for Kerr, replied, taking the ground that it was proper to show by the an tecedents of the witness that he was not a com petent witness. .a! J a 1_i • r rr _ • is — •• uau uciiuci ately sworn falsely as to his married life, the committee were entitled to know whether such was a fact. Danford repeated his objection and asked whether this committee was not bound by the same rules that a court would enforce, and whether a witness would not be entitled to protection, and , Blackburn replied that the committee was not bound by the strict tech nical rules which govern courts. The ques tion was as to the date of Harney’s marriage, and i f it could be shown that he perjured him self, it would impeach his credibility as a wit ness. Elliott referred to the testimony taken on the 2d inst., in which Harney said that he was married in July, 1867, to Annie Prior, and that he had no wife when be was here as an assis tant doorkeeper. He quoted Judge Story to show that if the witness does not testify cor rectly in relation to a fact about which he could not be mistaken, he is not entitled to credence. Clymer also took the ground that it was com petent to pursue the question so as to show the character of the mas, for if Harney was not married at the time he boarded with Mrs. Mur ray, be lived in adulterous intercourse with a woman there. Clymer asked Mrs. Murray, “Did you have any doubt whether the woman who lived with Harney at your bouse was his wife?” and she answered, “t would not have boarded them if I bad thought they were not [married, and if I had found out that they had deceived me, 1 would have got rid of them.” Teaiimany of Green and Moore. A. P. Green was recalled and contradicted Hirney's testimony in sever hi particulars. He said that he did not believe that Harney ever paid Speaker Kerr a cent of the money paid to Harney by Green. J. S. Moore testified to the interview with Harney in New York, in regard to the anony mous letter sent to Mr. Kerr, when Harney said that George Bliss was crowding him, that Bliss and Johnny Davenport wanted to make political capital out of the charge against Kerr, and that they were both bad rascals and scoun drels. It appeared from Moore’s testimony that Mr. Kerr, through the advice of friends engaged Sidney Webster to find out the writer of the anonymous letter so as to have the writer pros ecuted, it being thought that bringing the mat ter before the criminal court would have the effect of punishing a conspiracy. Speaker Kerr’s Statement. A written statement from Mr. Kerr was read by Mr. Elliott in the presence of the Speaker. He repeats that he never consciously knew Harney, never talked with him on business matters, and that Harney never certainly offer ed or gave him any money, and explains at length the circumstances attending jbe ap pointment of Green. Crimes and Casualties. Thomas Quigley, a fireman at Crocker, Bur bank & Co.’s paper mill, Fitchburg, was found drowned in the river Sunday night. He was with a drunken party in the vicinity when last seen on Saturday evening.

A Notable Day in The House, Mr. Blaine Rises to a Per sonal Explanation. Anti * Reads AH the [Rulliffan Letters. A Scone of Great Excitement. Knott Confesses to Suppressing a Telegram From Mr. Caldwell. Which Exonerated Mr. Blaine. Washington, June 4—In the House this fore noon Mr. Blaine of Maine (rising to a ques tion of privilege) proceeded to address the House on the subject of the investigation into the Union Pacific and Northern Pacific trans actions, in which his narco had become involv ed. The Character of the Investigation. He read the resolution offered by Mr. Tarbox on which the inquiry as to the connection of the Union Pacific Kailroad with the bonds of the Little Rock and Fort Smith Railroad was commenced. The author of that resolution had at the time disclaimed any particular allu sion to him (Blaine), a disclaimer he (Blaine) regarded at the time with some little incred ulity. It soon became entirely obvious that the resolution vas solely and only aimed at him and that the Union Pacific matter or any other incident to the investigation was secon dary, insignificant and unimportant. He did not complain of that, he was ready to meet it. The gentleman on whose statement the accused rested (Harrison) had been the first man called and stated what he knew from rumor. Then Mr. Rollins, Mr. Morton and Mr. Willard and T. A. Scott were examined and their testimony was complete ond conclusive in disproof of his (Blaine’s) having had anything whatever to do with the transaction. He had expected to have an early report from the committee, but it had been prolonged and prolonged and prolonged,-and he had been somewhat surprised last week at being told the committee would then turn to investigate the transactions of the Northern Pacific Railroad Company on a newspaper report that there had been somo effort on h's part with a friend in Boston, to procure for him some shares of that company, which effort had proved abortive. He had asked the gentleman from Virginia, the chairman of the sub-committee (Huntou)i under what authority ha proposed to make that investigation, and had been told that au thority was the resolution offered by Luttrell on the 31st of Jauuary. He thought that that gentleman (Luttrell) would be surprised to find out that the first thing done under that resolution was to bring its whole force to bear on the little transaction in Boston, which had proved no transaction at all. That investigation was begun and three wit nesses had testified just precisely as the circum stances were. He had no sooner got through with this than in another part of of the capitol, without the slightest notice or warning to him, the committee on the real estate pool had en tered on an investigation specifically aimed at him, so that there were three investigations go inrr An of tlio ooma fimo trifliAnf onir AF tlinm beiDg completed. He understood tbe gentle man from Virginia (Hunton) proposed this morning still another inquiry about tbe Kan sas Pacific Railroad Company, a transac'ion which was fifteen years old even if it existed, and this was also aimed at him. A Rebel Assault. Row he would say, and say it boldly, that under these general powers to investigate spe cific railroad companies, the whole inquiry of tbe committees was aimed personally at him. Why did they not organize a committee to in vestigate James G. Blaine? He wanted to meet the thing squarely. He did nat wish to stir up any biood on this question, but he would say that ever since a certain debate took place in the House in January last it had been known that there were gentlemen here whose feelings had been exasperated against him, and it was to he remarked that while there were seven Democratic members of the Judiciary Commit tee, the chairmau ot that committee (Knott) selected on the sub committee to which these matters had been referred two members from the South who had been in the rebel army. Knott of Kj—One word. Blaine—After a moment. Knott—Allow me a word now. Blaine—Well, go on. Knott—Tho matter of that railroad investi gation was referred to the sub-committee be fore I ever heard your name mentioned in con nection with it. I had no act or part in in citing any investigation implicating you at all. Blaine—Then the gentleman from Virginia (Hunton) insisted under that resolution which was obviously on its face limited to the $75, 000 bond transaction with the Union Pacific Railroad Co., going on into all the affa:rs ot tbe Little Rock & Fort Smith Railroad Co., and incidental thereto, and pursued it to such an extent that finally I had myself, through my colleague (Frye), to take an appeal to the full committee and the full committee decided that tho gentleman (Hunton) bad no right to go into it, but when he came back he resumed the examination exactly in the same way till he was stopped by my colleague (Frye), acting not as my attorney, but as my friend, and when finally the witness, Mulligan, came here loaded with information in regard to the Fort Smith Railroad, the gentleman (Huoton) drew out what he knew had no reference what ever to the question under investigation, and then and there insisted on all my private mem oranda being allowed to be exhibited by this man. Mulligan, which bad no more connection or relation with this investigation than the north pole. Tbe gentleman tried his best also until I believe that idea had been abandoned to capture and use and control my private corres pondence. This man had selected out of a cor respondence running over a great many years letters which he thought would be particular ly damaging to me. He came here loaded with them. He came here for a sensation. He came here primed. He came here on that particular errand. I was advised of it and I obtained these letters under circumstances which have been notoriously scattered through out theUnitedStates and are known everywhere. 1 have them (holding up a package). I claim that I have entire right to these letters, not only by natural rigbt hut on all the precedents and principles of law. The man who held them in his possession held them wrongfully and tbe committee which attempted to take these letters from this man for use against me proceeueu wroogiuny. it proceeueu id the boldest and most defiant violation of (be ordin ary,personal and private rights that belong'.to every American citizen. I am willing to meet the judiciary committee on that point. 1 waut ed that committee to introduce it. I wanted the gentleman from Kentucky (Knott) and the gentleman from Virginia (Huntosjto intro duce that question on the floor and they did not do it. Knott (in his seat)—Oh, no, you want to be made a martyr of. Blaine—Yes,and you did not want it. There’s the difference. I will go a little further and say you did not dare to do it. Knott—We will not talk about “daring.” Hamilton of New Jersey—I rise to a question of order. Is the geutlemau’s language parlia mentary? Blaine—Yes, entirely so. The Speaker pro tern, Mr. Cox of New York, in the chair—It is for the Chair to decide. The Private Correspondence. Blaine—I understand the judiciary commit tee to have abandoned that issue against me, but there has gone forth the idea or impression that because I would not permit that man or any man (when I could prevent it) from hold ing a menace over my head by private corres pondence, there must be something in it most deadly and destructive to my reputation. I would like any man now onjthis floor, and all of them are presumed to be men of affairs whose business has been varied and whose In tercourse has been large,ito stand up here and say that he is williDg ana ready to have his private correspondence for the last ten or twelve years handed over aDd made public. Does it imply guilt? Does it imply wrong doing? Does it imply a sense ot weakness that a man will protect bis private correspondence? No, sir. It is a man’s first interest to do it, and it is the last outrage on aoy man to violate it. I have defied the power to take these letters from me, I do it still. I speak with all respect to this House. I know its powers and I trust that I respect them, but I say that this House has no more power to order what shall be done or shall not be done with private correspon dence than it has to order whati shall do with Lhe future and admonition of my ch'ldren—not uuo panicle more. The Liltera Produced. But I am about to show the letters, (holding them up in his hand;. 1 thank God Almighty that I am not ashamed to show them. There they are. There is the very origiual package. With some sense of humiliation, with a moiti fication which I do not pretend to conceal,with a sense of outrage which I think any man| in my position would feel, I invite the confidence of forty-four millions of people and I will read these letters. (Applause which the Speaker pro tern endeavored to suppress.) Many of these letters have not the remotest bearing on the subject, but some of them will require a little explanation. Some of them may possi bly involve humiliation,but I would a good deal rather take that than take the evil surmises and the still more evil inferences that might be drawn if I did not act with irankness. Mr. Blaine Reads the betters. Mr. Blaine thereupon proceeded to read and to make passing comments upon the explana tions of various points in the several letters. Augusta, Me., Aug. 31, 1872. Mv Dear Mr. Fisher,— I have been absent so much of late that I did not receive your last letter until it was several days old. When I last wrote you I expected to be in Boston on a political conference about this time, but found it impossible to be there, and it is now impossible for me to leave here until our election, which occurs on Monday week the 9th. I will try to meet you at the Parker House on the 10th or ltth, availing myself of the first possible moment for that purpose. I can not. however, allow a remark in your letter to pass without comment. You say that you have been trying to get a settle ment for fifteen months. You have been trying to induce me to comply with certain demands which you made upon me without taking into account any claims I have of a counter kind. This does not fill my idea of a#ettlemcnt, for a settlement must in clude both sides. No person could be more anxious for a settlement than I am, and it upon our next interview we cannot reach one,why then we may try other means. But my judgment is that I shall make you so liberal ou otter of settlement thet you cannot possibly refuse. As one of the elements which I wish to take into account is the note of $10,000 given you in 1863 for Spencer stock, I desire that you will furnish me with the items ot interest on that note, which you still hold, that you did not charge me interest on, possibly omitting one or two years, I will be obliged if you will give me information on this point, tor I intend to submit to you a full and explicit settlement, and in making it up it is neces sary that I should have this information. Please send it as promptly as you may be able to give it to me. In haste, Very truly yours, W. U. AJli.ll.> I-. Warren Fisher, Jr., Esq. The allusion to the Spencer contract he ex plained by saying that in the summer of 1861, two years before he first came to Congress, he had been asked if he could not get an oppor tunity for the inventor of the Spencer repeat ing rirle to bring that new arm to the attention of the Secretary of War. He said he thought he could and he had come on to Washington and had an interview with Secretary Cameron. Mr. Cameron had given orders to have it tested by the ordnance bureau. It had been thor oughly tested and the experiments were so sat isfactory that a preliminary order for 20,000 rifles was made. The company had immedi ately proceeded to erect an armory in Boston. He bad been paid not an extravagant but a moderate fee for his services, which he had just as much liberty to take as any lawyer or agent had to take a fee. Subsequently he had taken and paid for $10,000 of stock in the com pany which had since been merged in the Man chester liille Co. That was the whole story. There are five letters. There are the whole of them and here is Mulligan’s memorandum. I keep it as protection for myself to show the identity of the letters in every respect. Augusta. Me., July 2,18G9. My Dear Mr. Fisher,— You ask me if lam satisfied with the offer you made ot a share in your new railroad enterprise. Of course I am more than satisfied with the terms of the oft'er. I think it a most liberal proposition. Ifl have any hesitation at all it is from consideration no way connected with the character of the offer. Your liberal mode of dealing with me in all our business transaction of the past eight years has not passed without my full appreciation. What I wrote you on the 27th was intended to bring Caldwell to a definite proposition, that was all. I go to Boston by the same tram that carries this letter, and will call at your office at 12 m. If you don’t happen to be in, no matter. Don’t put yourself to any trouble about it. Yours, J. Q. B. Mb. Fisher, Jr. AUGUSTA, Me., Oct. 4th, 1871. My Dear Mr. Fisher.— You must have strangely misunderstood Mr. Cald well’s statement in regard to his paying me all but $2500 borrowed money which I loaned the company through him and you last January. Mr. Caldwell paid in June $3500 and in July $2500 more, accept ing at the same time a draft for $2500 July 10th, on ten days, which draft remains unpaid. Therefore I received hut $6000 from Caldwell, leaving $19,000 besides the interest due me todoy. For that $1900 1 am individually held, and considering all the cir cumstances I think that you and Mr. Caldwell ehould regard it as an honorary debt, ami you should not allow me to suffer for money which I raised un der peculiar circumstances, and then again I have been used with positive dmelty in regard to the bonds. I have your positive written contract to de liver me $125,000 land bonds and $32,500 first mort gage bonds. The money ane you on tbecontract was all paid nearly a year and a half ago. Of that whole amount of bonds due me I have received but $50,000 of land grants, leaving $75,000 ot them, and $32,500 of first mortgage bonds still due. I know that you are pressed and in trouble, and I do not wish to be exacting. Bather I wish to be very liberal in settle ment. Now I make this offer. Pay mo the cash due on the borrowed money account, call it $19,000 in round numbers, and $40,000 in land bonds and we will call it square. Mr. Caldwell has repeatedly assured me that 1 should be paid all the bonds due me uuder centracts with you and outside of that $25,000 due me from him now. I voluntarily offer to make a very large reduction ifl can have the matter closed. I am without doubt the only person who has paid money for bonds without receiving that and I think you will agree with me that I have fared pretty roughly. It would be an immense, immeasurable relief to me if I could receive the money in time to pay off the indebtedness here within the next six weeks so I can go to Washington this winter with the load taken off my shoulders. It was placed there in the fullest faith and confidence that you and Mr. Caldwell would not let me suffer, and I still cling to that faith and confidence- You will much oblige me bv showing this letter to Mr. Caldwell. Your’s truly, James G. Blaine. Washington, May 14,1870. My Dear Mr. Fisher,— I think on the whole that I had better not insist on the $40,000 addditional bonds at the same rate. My engagement is not absolute and I can break out of it with honor. I would rather do this than seem to he exacting or indelicate, besides, I have always felt that Mr. Caldwell always manifested a most gen tlemanly spirit towards me and desired to treat me handsomely in the end. On the whole, therefore, I shall better oft perhaps to let things remain as they aro.butlwill follow your judgment in this matter, if I can find what it is. Yours, &c., J. G. Blaine. Augusta, Me., Aug. 9, 1872. My Dear Mr. Fisher,— On my return home yesterday I found your favor of the 6th, from Stonington. asking for my notes of $6000 on account. It seems to mo that a partial set tlement of our matter would only lead to future trouble, at all events, to mere postponements of our preseut difficulties. I deem it highly desirable that we should have a conclusive settlement, and I have been eager for that for three months. The account which you stated June 20,1872, does not correspond precisely with the reckoning I have made of my in debtedness. On the note you hold you credited me April 26,1850, with $125,000 dividend from the Spen cer Company, but there were two subsequent divi dends, one of $3750 the other of $5800, of which no mention is made in your statement, though I receiv ed in June, 1870 your check for $2700 or $2800, which was a part of those dividens. I believe. I think mv cash memorandum of Jnne 15,1869, for $2500 with which you charge me, represented at the time a part of the dividends, but being debited with that I am entitled to a credit of the dividend. In other words as I reckon it there are dividends amounting to $9550 due me with interest since June, 1870, of which I have received only $2700 or $2800, entitling me thus to a credit of some $7500 besides the cash memorandum of Jan. 9,186*, for $600, which, with interest, amounts to $904.10 included in the consolidate note which was given to represent all my indebtedness to you, and which you repeatedly assured me would he met and liquidated in good time by Spencer dividends. You will thus see that we differ materially as to the figures. Of course each of us is aiming at precise ly the facts of the case, and if l am wrong please cor rect. me. I am sure that you do not desire me to pay a dollar that is not due and I am equally sure that I am more than ready to pay every cent I owe you. The Little Rock matter is a perpetual and never ending embarrassment to me. I am pressed daily almost to make a final settlement with those who still hold securities—a settlement I am not able to make uutil I receive the bonds due on your article of agreement with me. That is to me by far the most urgent and pressing of all the demands connected witti our matter and the one which I think in all equity should be first settled, or certainly settled as soon as any. If the $6000 cash is so impOTtant to you I would be glad to assist to raise the same for your notes, using Little Rock bonds as collateral at the same rate they are used in Boston, four for one. I think I could get the money heie on four or six months for these terms. If I had the money my self I wotlld be glad to advance to you. but I am as [fry as a contribution box, borrowing indeed to de fray my campaign expenses. Very sincerely yours, J. G. Blaine. Warren Fisher, Jr. Esq., Boston. Augusta, Me., Oct-1,1871. My Dear Mr. Fisher: 1 am doing all in my power to expedite and hasten the delivery of stock. The delay has been occasion ed by circumstances wholly beyond my controj, but I shall reach a conclusion within a few days and make a formal delivery of them. It will be an im mense relief to get it oft my hands I assure you far greater than for you to receive it. You must have strangely misunderstood Mr. Caldwell in re rraril tn hio niuiinff ttmeo Tintpe' Ho Viuu T.airl mo mi. ly just $6000, leaving $19,000 due, which I am carry ing here at 8 and 8$ per cent, interest, and which ombarrrasses me beyond all imaginatiou. I do not really know which way to turn for relief, I am so pressed and hampered with the Little Rock & Fort Smith matter, and if you and Caldwellibetween you cannot pay that $19,000 of borrowed money I do not know tohat I shall do. Politically I am charged with being a wealthy man, and personally and pe cuniarily 1 am laboring under the most tearful em barrassments, and the greatest of all these embar rassments is the $19,000 which 1 have not received of the $25,000 original debt. Mr. Caldwell has paid $6000 and $6000 only, Can you not give me some hope of relief in this matter? It is cruel beyond measure to leave me so exposed and suffering. Youi’s Truly, James G. Blaine. “The next letter I hold”, said Blaine, “is dated Augusta, Me., July 3, 1872 The wit ness said there was nothing in it about the Pa cific Railroad.” Augusta, Me,, July 3, 1872. My Dear Mr. Fisher: 1 was detained tar beyond my expectations in New York and Pennsylvania, being there quite a week. I was in Boston on Monday en route home, but I was so prostrated by tbe heat that I had no strength or energy to call on you. It seems to me as I review and recall our several conferences that we ought not to have any trouble in coming to any easy adjust ment as follows: First, I am ready to fulfil tbe memorandum held by you in regard to the Northern Pacific Railroad, as I always have been. Second, You are ready to consider the land bonds in my possession surrendered on payment of tbe debt to which they were originally held as collateral. » Third, I am ready to pay you the full amount ot cash duo you on the memorandum held by you, pro vided you will pay me half the amount of bonus due me on the memoranda held by me—the cash to be paid and tbe bonds to be delivered at the same time. as to the further sale of the share in tbe Northern Pacific, 1 am ready to do all iu my power to oblige you in the matter. If we can adjust the first and second points herein referred to, the third might be left if you desire, to tfie future. Hitherto I have made all the proposi tions of settlement. If this is not acceptable to you please submit your views of a lair basis in writing. J. G. Blaine. Warren Fisher, Jr., Esq, Tbe next letter was one of July, 3d, 1872, giving further particulars of the deposits. The next letter read was dated April 2Gth, 1872, and it Blaine answers Fisher’s request fora letter of credit of $10,000 on Jay Cooke & Co. Tlie liftli letter referred to a decision made by Blaine as Speaker on the last night of the session in 1869, in ruling out an amendment offered by Julian to annex the Memphis and El Paso bill to a bill re lating to the Little ltock road. Mr. Blaine then read from Logan’s speech in the Globe, showing that the Speaker sustained Logan’s point. Mr. Frye interrupts Blaine and asked him whether at that time he had or expected to have any interest in that railroad? Air. Blaine—Never. What I did was to help members; this is always done by the Speaker. Never heard of the road before. Iu another letter Blaine is ready to settle about the Northern Pacific Railroad and other matters. He invites propositions from Fisher as to a settle ment. Blaine wanted to go to Washington this win ter with the load off, wants the letter showu to Cald well. Date, Washington, April 13,1672. Blaine is una ble to send money. Wants copits of his notes. Claims that uisher still owes him $101,000 in bonds, for which he paid three years before. Refers also to $25,000 borrowed which is still carrying. Mentions also $6000 in land grant bonds of Union Pacific Com pany he had left with Fisher, which Fisher had ex changed tor Little Rock. These Union Pacifies only belonged in part to Blaine. Blaine wants copies ol all his notes, and does not wish any of bi9 notes put out as collateral to third parties. He explains that a lady member of his family had bought these $6001 Union Pacific bonds on the stockholders’ basis upon the representation of Samuel Hooper. These belong ed wholly to this lady, well known to be Miss Aba gail Dodge. Blaine refers to the North Pacific matter and tc the memorandum held by Fisher. Blaine is willing to settle and sacrifice much for a full settlement Proposes Ward Cheney as refered. Alay 26, 1867, Blaine refers to the fact that Gov ernment has decided to take all the Spencer rifles that can be made, and sends a hill pending before the Senate, with information about including a state ment that Blaine had suggestod one amendment, The provision had reference to the fact that Govern, ment stood losses on certain taxes. Washington, April , 1872. Refers to Fort Smitl matters and sale of Little Rock bonds; Blaine hail kept the money but 48 hours; bad labored and suf fered much to save iunocent holders; was im measurably worse oft than he would have been had he never coveted them; is not willing to make t partial settlement. Again suggests a referee. Blaine prefaces the letter by referring to the fac that some legislation was had for the Little Rod road in that ses-ion, but he himself at that tinu knew nothing of that road and those associated witl him did not. Blaine again refers to his ruling, which saved th< Little Rock bill, and refers for the first time to Cald well and Hersey; hopes he will be pleased. Augusta, June, 1867, Fisher had offered him an interest; Blaine will go to Boston aud see Caldwell Glover of Mo.—Will you have that memo randum read? oiuine—i will oo so. Hale of Me.—Does this exhibit cover every paper that came from Mulligan? Blaine—Every solitary secret. Glover—Let that memorandum be read ai the clerk’s desk. Blaine (sending it to the clerk’s desk)—Yes 1 will be glad to have it read. The memorandum was read as follows: mulligan’* memorandum. The following is the memorandum of Mulli gan: 1— October 4th, 1609, relating to debate in Housi and Blaine ruling, also Globe,land favors he was ti receive from C. for pressing bill. 2— October 4th, *69, on same subject. 3— June 27th,’69, thanking Fisher for admittini him to participate in L. & F. Railroad, and urgin; him to make Caldwell say how much he wouli give him, and for that he knew he would he no dea< head, but would render valuable assistance. 4— July 25th, ’69, on the same subject. 5— September 5th,’69, contract with different par ties. 6— Contract with Northern Pacific,. 7— May 14th, *70, Caldwell designed to treat hio handsomely. 8— October 21th, ’71, Fisher to Blaine, urging set tlement of Northern Pacific Railroad account, $5, 060. 9— October 4th, 1871, Blaine admits that there wa $6000 paid on the $25,000 loan and to having receive! $50,000 from Fisher. 10— October 1st, 1871, admits being paid $6600 ot account of loan. Mr, Blaine sold sundry partie $125,000 first mortgage bonds and common stock $125,000 preferred do; $125,000 tor which paid b them, $125,000 cash, and Mr. Blaine was to receiv for his share of the transaction $125,000 in land gran bonds, $32,500 first mortgage bonds. mr. Blaine’* Comment. Blaine—Now I would be obliged for any geu tleman when he reads these letters to see thi obvious interest on which that memoranduu was made up. I desire also to call attention ti the fact that these are the letters, for which I wa ready to commit suicide and sundry and diver other desperate things in order to acquire them 1 have one or two more observations to make The specific charge which went to the commit tee was whether I was a party in interest tc that $(14,000 transaction, aud I submit that U| to this time there has not been one particle ol proof to connect me with it. These letters weri picked out of my correspondence extending ove fifteen years. The man (Mulligan) did hi: worst, his very worst. They were picked ou of the most intimate business correspondence of my life. I ask you, gentlemen, and I asl with some feeling, if any of you could stand i closer scrutiny and a more rigid investigatioi of your conespondence. Now there is hut oni piece of testimony wanting, there is but oui thing to close the complete circle of testimony, fflr. Koolt Charged with Suppressing i Telegram from Caldwell. There is one witness whom I cannot have, but to whom the Judiciary Committee veto ti send a cable despatch, Josiah Caldwell. I ask the gentleman from Kentucky if that cable despatch was sent. Knott—The gentleman from Virginia (Hun +rvrv\ orwl T -_X* _ Caldwell’s address, and have not yet got it. Blaine—Has the gentleman from Kentucky received a cable despatch from Caldwell? Knott—I will explain that directly. Blaine—I want a categorical answe r. Knott—I have received a despatch purport ing to be from Caldwell. How did you know 1 got it? Blaine (advancing down the aisle)—When die you get that despatch? Knott—I want you to answer my question first. Blaine—I never heard of it till yesterday. Knott—How did you hear it? An Exciting Scene. Blaine—I heard that you got a despatch last Thursday morning at 8 o’clock from Josiah H, Caldwell, exonorating me completely and ab solutely from this charge, and (with great ve hemence ot manner) you have suppressed it. (Loud applause and cheering on the ltepubli can side of the House and in the galleries, which caused the Speaker pro tern, to lecture the galleries and- to direct the doorkeeper to clear the floor of all unauthorized persons. After some time spent in having order re stored Blaine again returned to the charge and demanded of Knott an answer to his question. Knott (contemptuously)—I will answer when I get ready. Ho on with yonr speech. Blaine—I offer the following resolution: A Resolution Calling for its Production. Resolved, That the Judiciary Committee be in structed to report forthwith to the House whether in acting on the resolution of the House ot May 2d rela tive to the purchase by the Union Pacific Railroad Company ot 75 land grant bonis ot the Little Rock & sort Smith Railroad, said committee has sent any telegram to one Josiah H. Caldwell in Europe and received a reply thereto, and if so, that committee report said telegram and reply, with the date when said reply was received, and tne reason why the same has been suppressed or whether the committee has heard from said Josiah Caldwell in any other way and what. The Previous Qu&liou moved. The gentleman (Knott) intended to convey the idea that I had some illegitimate knowl edge of how that despatch was obtained. I have had no communication with Mr, Josiah Caldwell and no means of knowing from the telegraph office when it was received, but I tell the gentleman from Kentucky that “mur der will out” and that “secrets will leak”. 1 am prepared to state to this House that at 8 o’clock or thereabouts, last Thursday morning, the gentleman from Kentucky received and re ceipted for a message addressed to him from Josiah Caldwell in London, entirely corrobo rating and sustaining the testimony of Mr. Thos. A. Scott, which Caldwell had just read in a New York newspaper, and entirely excul pating me from the charge which I am bound to believe from the suppression of that des patch, gentlemen are anxious to fasten upon me. I move the previous question on the resolution. Holman of Indiana suggested that the reso lution could only be voted for under suspension of rules. Blaine—Not when the resolution embraces the highest of privileges and involves the good faith and honor of the Judiciary (Committee? Jones of Ky—The question put by the gen tleman from Maine to my colleague is a prop er question and ought to be answered, and 1 have no doubt will be answered. Blaine—I thank the gentleman front. Jxeu tuck v. ■UK. RENTON’S REPLY Mr. Hunten of Virginia, chairman of the committee, stated that ho would make a short statement of the matter to which the gentle man (Blaine) had alluded, and he trusted tint he would do it calmly, dispassionately and fair ly. The Honse had witnessed this morning a remarkable, not to say an unexampled scene. Dnrincr this SAKsmn twn roshlntinna been adopted by the House, each of which or dered an Investigation, each of which had been referred to the judiciary committee by the House, and each of which had been by that committee referred to a sub-committee, con sisting of Mr. Ashe of North Carolina, Law rence of Ohio, and he himself. Before that committee had reached any conclusion or had finished taking testimony, an effort was made by the gentleman who was supposed to be most deeply concerned in these investigations to take the consideration of those questions from the organ of the House and to report upon them in person. He need not remind the House what sort of a report would come from that commit tee if the gentleman troin Maine were allowed to make it After the House had ordered an investigation it was not only unexampled but entirely against legislative practice for a gen tleman to rise and undertake to anticipate the conclusions of the committee or to state what the action of tho committee had been. When the sub-committee was organized the gentleman from Maine had expressed himself uot only satisfied lut pleased with its person nel, and now that gentleman complained that two members of the sub-committee were ex coDfederates. At the instance of the gentle man from Maine, a day had been appointed on which the sub-committee was to euter upon its duties, and now the gentleman told the House that he had learned first from the sub-commit tee that he was the party to be investigated and not the Union Pacific ltailroal Company. So far from that being so, the first that he (Hun ton) had heard from any member of the House or committee on the subject was from Blaine himself, to the effect that the resolution offered by Tarbox attached to him, and that he wanted the investigation commenced on a given day and proceeded with with as much dispatch as possible. On the very daj fixed the investiga tion had begun, and from that day to this every hour that the committee could devote to it had been devoted to it except when the gentle man himself had prevented it. More than two weeks had been lost to the committee because of the conduct of tho gentleman from Maine, and now that gentleman tried to make the im pression that it was the purpose of the com mittee to prolong tho investigation for some • sinister purpose. He might just as well have said it was the purpose of the committee to postpone it until alter the 14th of Jane. Every member of the committee would bear him witness that the committee had worked in season and oat of season, sitting on one occa sion nearly the entire day in order to get through with the investigation prior to the 14th of June. Every delay which had occurred was either because the gentleman from Maine was absent or had requested an adjournment. In regard to the Northern Pacific aud Kansas Pacific railroad investigations, he had told Mr. Blaine that the committee would take up first the matters which touched him if he desired. Blaine had desired the committee to do so, and yet he seemed very much surprised now to find that an investigation was to be undertaken by the committee that involved an examination into those Pacific railroads, and it was pro longed, and prolonged, and prolonged, while the committee had agreed for his sake and purposed to skip all other inquiry under Lut trell’s resolution till the committee disposed of that which seemed attached to Mr. Blaine. krye—Did not Mr. Blaine object that under Luttrell’s resolution the committee had no ju risdiction of a stock transaction between two individuals? Hunton—I think very likely he did and think that if the question of jurisdiction was sub mitted to Blaine there would be a great many questions ruled out, but the committee had to decide the question of jurisdiction for itself aud it had decided that it had jurisdiction. Coming down to the Mulligan matter,Hun ten spoke of Mulligan as a Boston gentleman whose character was unimpeached and unim peachable. He said Fisher had been asked the question on the Btand what sort of a man Mul ligan was, that his reply was substantially if not literally that Mulligan was as good a man as be ever knew if not the best man he ever knew, and Mr. Atkins, another witness, had made substantially the same auswer. Mulli gau had mentioned when under examination that he had certain letteis and the mention of those letters had seemed to have an immediate effect upon Blaine who immediately whispered to Lawrence to move an adjournment, and Lawrence had got up with great solemnity on his countenance and said: “Mr. Chairman, I am very sick.” (Laughter.) Lawrence rose to explain. Hunton—I hope the gentleman is better to day. (Laughter.) Lawrence—I ask my colleague whelher. when I went into the committee room that morning, I did not say I had beeu exceedingly sick. 1 was so sick that it was very difficult for me to sit there at all, and at about half past twelve, at the time the committee usually ad journs, I said I was quite unwell and moved that the committee adjourn. I have been quite unwell ever since. (Laughter ou the Demo crat side.) Hunton—That is exactly as it occurred. The gentleman from Ohio came in the morning sick, but he went to work in the most vigorous style, aud when the letters came the gentleman became sick again and- somebody else became sicker. (Langhter.) r.'XvinnPO_T f nnnhk Ku onl.l !n Lmtlnn 4.. Mr. Blaioe that as to his indicating his purpose i to me to move an adjournment it was not i because of any tear of what was going on. Hunton—I never intimated any such a thing. (Laughter.) The gentleman is raising a man of straw just to knock him over, but I do say that after those letters were mentioned in l cidentally the gentleman, on suggestion pf Blaine, moved an adjournment and put it on the ground that he was sick. An adjournment was had, as we .did not like to keep our col leage in mysery and address. When Mulligan was put on the stand the next morning be proceeded to make a personal explanation. Hunton here recounted Mulli gan’s explanation substantially as it has been already printed. Hunton resuming said: Who ' has a right to complain? The gentleman from Maine or the committee, the gent'eman from Maine or the House. Here was a witness sum i moned from Boston who did not appear as a voluntary witness, but came uuder the com ' pulsory process of the House. He was entit ' led to the protection of the House. This is a ' question which concerns the House more than the committee. I claim according to well set tied principles of law those letters belonged to Warren Fisher from the time that he received them till he delivered them to Mulligan and from that time forth Mulligau was entitled to the ownership of them. Blaine had no more property in these letters than he had in my watch or any other piece of my property. Frye—Did not Mr. Blaine offer to submit those letters to be examined privately, and did not Hunton say that he would not examine them privately? Hunton—I refused to receive them privately. I said to Blaine over aud over again, “I do not want to see your correspondence, either public ly or privately. I hav< got no right to see it except as a committee man and those gentle men who sit on either side of me have the same right as I have. 1 do not mean to receive any papers which my colleagues on the com mittee cannot see aud inspect with me.” Then J had the honor of ah invitation to Mr. Blaine’s house to rdad those letters, but I re plied in the same way; “I have no right to go into your house as a private citizen aud read your private correspondence. If 1 have a right to look at it at all it is as chairman of the com mittee. If 1 have no right to look at it in that way I have no right to look at it at all and 1 shall not do it.” It is for the House to de termine whether the committee did right or wrong. It I have erred it has been an error of the judgment and I say today that it is a job that I never fancied. Blaine—Does the gentleman from Virgiria know of a despatch received from Josiah Cald well from London? Hunton—My friend, the chairman of the Ju diciary Committee, will reply to you in full on that subject. Blaine—Then I ask yon to state whether on Thursday morning last the gentleman from Kentucky (Knott) did not call you out of the committee room and acquaint you of that fact? Hunton—If my friend from Kentucky does not answer you in full I will. Blaine (contemptuously)—Oh! MARINE NEWS. The Wrecked Steamer Oriental. Boston, June 5.—The steamer Oriental, Capt.

London, June 4.—The Daily Nows’special dispatches from Alexandria, Berlin, Vienna, Borne and Paris sound more than usually alarming. The Alexandria correspondent says that Mourad Effendi is an old enemy of the Khedive of Egypt, and it is not likely that the Khedive will risk his life by personally present ing himself in Constantinople ta do homage to the new ruler of the Ottoman Empire. Serria R-fusc to Recognize the New Mul tan. The Berlin d;spatch says that Servia will not recognize the new Sultan. The British Attitude Unpopular. Vienna papers say that Gortscbakeff is great ly irritated, attributing tlio Turkish revolution to English intervention. From Vienna comes a report that the British government recently suggested that the warfare being waged against the Turks in Servia and Montenegro should be treated as a breach of the peace of Europe com mitted by Bussia.

The stomach is the grand supply depot of the hotly, upou which it draws for all the elements needed in the composition of bone, muscle, brain and blood. The liver is an important auxiliary of this mighty organ, and the two are most intimately connected. Nothing so certainly ensures the harmonious action of these viscera, and so completely removes the dis orders which simultaneously affect both, as Hostet ter’s Stomach Bitters, the most popular American specific for all complaints to which the stomach, liver and bowels are subject, and the foremost tonic on this side of the Atlantic. Indigestion, costiveness, inactivity and congestion of the liver, poverty of the blood, debility of the bladder and kidneys, and many other ailments produced by or causing weakness, are entirely removed by its use.
