Col. Irvia recalhd: After! left the court
room, yesterday, I examined toy papers,
ana i lonna mat, on the sum ot ilay, 1864.
Mr. Henderson male the proposition to me
to lurmsn l.uou mules ; bui tbii l reiected.
because he required that he should have
tbe control of tbe market. On June 1st, I
received aaotner proposition irom bim jn
tbe shape of a letter, relative to tbe (urn
ishice of mules. The letter was returned
to Mr. Henderson with an indorsement
(Demand was here made for the letter by
tbe Judge Advocate.;
Got. coyi rcpiiea inai me letter was
merely for tbe purpose of showing that the
mules wee not intended tor tbe rebels. He
says that the letter iu question is not in his
possession, and tberelore bo cannot deliver

of the letter in my po-session. (He then
banded tne Judge Advocate tbe copy in his
possession.) ibe Judre Advocate then read
the letter, which proposed to furnish 1,000
serviceable mules, at least lourteen hands
high, to be serviceable, and to bo delivered
wubln sixty days. The copy was sworn to
by tne Colonel.
J ne indorsement on tne back is an ac
ceptance of the proposition.

was the private brand of Mr. Henderson,

Cross examination : 1 recollect that Mr.
Henderson had had some difficulty with
Mr. GalHgar, but can't lay that the loiter
written to me was the result of this dis
agreement. Mr. Henderson continued pas-
luring the mules some lew days alter the
acceptance of his propositiouliy me. The
agreement was closed as soon as he furnish
ed the required iiUinbt-r of mule, though 1
kept no track ot the agreement, at tbe
time, as 1 was then wanting some 30,000
mules for the army.
Tbe receipt for mules, given in the epec:
ticat.ons, could not be secured in voucher,
as it did cot stt lortb tbe height of the
mulos in question, as the prices of different
sized mules did not agree. The receipt set
forth becomes worth, ess on tbe face of it,
or at least, it would have been referred
back to Mr. Bruner for explanation, before
vouchers could have been issued on it. The
document, however, would have come into
tbe bands of the voucher clerk, to be pas-ed
on. J he clerk was o. ji. uouid, ot Carlisle,
1. It would have been difficult for any
one to have pas&ed a detective receipt asd
obtained a voucher, for tbe clerk had to
follow his instructions. Ho lnicht have
referred it back to Mr. Bruner for explana
tion, or he might have referred it to me. I
would only be authorized to issue a voucher
on a receipt giving the size of the mules.
Without the details on the kuuject it would
I never bad any contract with Mr. Hen
derson except for lueding mules, and the
one for furuiching 1,000 mules. This con
tract was fairly and honorably carried out,
and I had no knowledge of any transaction
not strictly in accordance with justice. No
comilnints were cut-red regarding it. fco
fur as I lind, he has always acted in an hon
orable maimer' with me.
(TheJude Advocate objected to this,
and the Court sustained the objections. )
The vouchers were made out in the names
of parties who preBeuted the receipts for
mule, etc. The vuuche s were often given
to parlios who did not themse' ves put in the
mules, but to those who had bought memo

them in, anil this l consider periectly right
and proper. 1 made tho arrangement to
break up a monopoly by large contractors,
and the moihod ot giving these gave ma

cases this consis'ed in changing the size

for more mules than delivered. On these
transactions I received considerable money;

There is no law prescribing the form by
memorandum receipts, nor is there any for
even makmg them. 1 merely prescribed
the form myself. When an informal receipt
came to tbe office, either a new receipt
would have been required or a full explana
tion ou the back of tbe old one.
I have no record of tbe names of parties
obtaining vouchers, except the journals,
which are in the poitession of the Judige
Advocate. I have ft book (abstract D,)
which will show the names of any parties
who bought up receipts and got pay, or
vouchers, tor mules doiivered by others.
AfUrMr. Henderson had furnished the
number of mules proposed in his letter, he
furnished othera, which I bought.
Wo. McKay Hogo Sworn i I was em
ployed with Mr. Bruner at the corrals, near

and the giving of receipts lor the same.

known him about three years. I formed
bis acquaintance in Nashville.
(Here Col. Cyle moved his seat to a po.
sition near the witness, to which the Judge

Colonel why be seated himself there, and

Examination Continued : 1 kept Mr. iiru-

tractors. Ail receipts in Kroner's name
were sijrned "II. B unerby Hoge."
An arrangement existed ueiween myseil

Objections by Accused : Col. Coy 1, for Mr.
Henderson, objected, unloss tbe allegations
corresponded with the specific allegations
in the charges. Sustained by the coun.
lo ft more specific question, the witness
said : I agreed to make ft false report as to
tbe size ot the mules, inskiug more of ft
large size than there really were, as the
larger the mule the higher the price paid
by the Government. The arrangement ftlso
consisted in giving receipt ior muies never
nut in. I gave such false receipts to Mr.
sham Henderson, at different times some
before I went home, iu July. 1304, and one
after I returned.
I had some conversction with Mr. Isham
Henderson, regarding the matter, but I
reco lect very little of it. Mr. Henderson
always insisted on my giving receipts for a
larger number of mules tiisu ho put in. I
remember, on one occasion, he remarked to
me that it was honorable to delraud the
Government out of ft lsrge amount, while
t was dishonorable to do it for a small sum.
We never had any positive agreement as
to my sha.e of the sums obtained fraudu
lently from the Government, but I gener
ally got about half. Tnis arrangement ex
isted for some time between us, but I cannot
state exactly how long, though I think it
was several months, perhaps all the time I
wss at the corrals. I left the corrals from
the 12th to the J5lh of Auguit, 1865. The
hole amount of money received by me
from Mr. Henderson I cannot recwiect
positively, but on ono occasion, he gay nie
Sumner's Compliments to
Soldiers and .Mechanics.
I a the Senate. few days since, the
bill to indemnify certain naval con
tractors ior losses sustained in build
ing iron-clads being under considera
tion, Mr. bumner delivered himself,
according to the official report, as fol
I hope I am not indifferent also to these
national creditors who have supplied the
means which helped our triumphs ; nor
yet again to those soldiers, whether on lan I
or sea, who havo so powerfully served the
national cuue. But there is still another
class, for whom no one has yet spoken on
this floor, who have contributed to your
success not less than the soldier or the
creditor; I was almost about lo say not less
than the frccdmen; I mean the iuchanics
of this country. They, sir, have helped you
to carry on this war to its victorious close.
Without the mechanics where would you
have been? What would have been your
equipments on tbe land? Where would
have been that marvellous navy on the sea?
It was the skill and labor of this country,
coming so promptly to the rescue, which
gave you that powei which carried you on
irom victory to victory."
The mechanics of the country had
contributed not less than the soldiers,
and not less than the creditors who
lent the Government money, fifty cento
for the dollar, and took bonds ex
empted from all taxation, and, be "was
about to say," kot less than the freed
men!" The white soldiers and mechan
ics had done very well for their coun
try during the war, nearly as well as
the freed men ! lie could not bring
hi aiself .quite to the point to declare
that the mechanics and soldiers had
done "not less than the freedmen," for
that admission might have conveyed
the idea that a white man was as good
as a negro. We turn Mr. Sumner and
the parly he leads over to the consid
eration of the soldiers who marched all
over the South to establish the su
premacy of the Government, and who
know just how much aid they received
Irom the freedmen in their great worn;
and to the consideration ot the me
chanics of the country, with this esti
mate of the results of their skill and
energy in comparison with the dusky
shades, stirred up by the whistles of the
ironclads they built, or who ran away
from ;the noise of the cannon they
made. Soldiers, mechanics, in the es
timation of Mr. Sumner, you are almost
as good as a nigger. tree J rest.

New Yost, Msy 1. Tbe Ilerald's special
says a casual conversation to day between
Secretary Seward and ft rentleroan from
v irginia may throw some light on the for-
mr s opinions concorning reconstruction
and Mexico. Mr. Seward said he had late
ly received ft letter, which had been forty
days on the way, advising him to act cau
tiously in the French and Mexican embros
lio, because of a strong probability of a re
commencement of hostilities between the
North and South. The writer assured Mr
Seward that so far as Virginia was concern
ed he need have no apprehensions. The
Secretary replied, nor so far as any part of
the country is concerned. The country has
bad enough to last it for a long time. An
intelligent and virtuous woman who has
taken the first step in a life of shame never
cesses lo deplore her misfortune; but an
indolent, ignorant woman will continue to
take many such downward steps aa long as
she lives. Such a country as Mexico may
be given over to political revolutions and
war, but a virtuous, enlightened and exem

Up to the night ot the 20th the belief in
a pacific adjustment of the German diffi
culty grew ationger. A telegram spoke of
concessions by Austria, and there wero
other rumors leading to a conviction that
peace would be maintained.
Funds in -Loglahd and on the cont next
had materially improved under pacific influences.
The London Times of the 21st, however.
announced that cn the previous day the
Emperor of Austria and the Count Menz-
dorlf, against the advice of some other Min
isters, resolved lo withdraw Count Karalore,
the Austrian Ambassador, from Berlin,
which decision being made known to the
Prussian Minister at Vienna, it was ex-
rected that he would depart imnndiately.
t is added in explanation that Count Menz-
dorff, on receiving the Prussian answer of
tbe loth, telegraphed to Berlin a repetition
of tbe Austrian demand of the 7th, and re
ceived a fresh refusal on the 19th. llenc
a council was held, and a bold course adopted.
The Times believes this action to be fol
lowed by significant military movement,
viz: The withdrawal of the Austrian troops
fiom Holslein, where tbey are held in
check by suierior Prussian forces. This
wouid enable Austria to assume the offen
sive; and tho Times says the abandonment
of Ho'stein by Austria will be regarded as
an act in anticipation of war, and cause
general alarm. It does nut, however, con
