WASHINGTON, October 24.
There are jost now an unhappy family at
the White House, and an unhappy official
family In the Cabinet The President bi fo rely
grieved that he has been "taken in and BO
handsomely done for" by his brother-in-law,
A. R. Corbin, who is sowell remembered in
the days gone by as a famous Washington lob?
byist, and whose recent complicity In the gold
ring in New York has made him still more
notorious. Whatever may be thought of Jay
Gould and Fisk, Jr., no one can Imagine
that they entered apon that gigantic Septem?
ber speculation without the most positive as?
surances from high officials here that tbe gov?
ernment would do nothing beyond its ordi?
nary sales of gold to depress ;he market, and
therefore leave the field clear to a rich
?Di powerful combination to put np the
price before October 15, so that large
sume .could be realized. They are men,
true, who speculate among the uncer?
tainties, but they do not risk all they have
only on a certainty; and in that they had the
rinnnMni support of Corbin and the Assis?
tant Treasurer at Kew York, General Batter
field, and, besides, the direct and indirect as?
surances of the President, that there was no
danger of interference. Bnt fortunately this
supposition is sustained very tully by the evi?
dence coming to light, and is bringing out the
names of all connected with tbe great gold
combination. Notwithstanding Mr. Corbin's
denials and General Butterfield's denials that
they were In the ring, the corroborative testi?
mony, oral and written, contradicts them.
Gould's check to Butterfield, the latter's sub?
sequent transfer by deed of bis property-to
cover bis losses, Mrs. Grant's letter and the
gold purchased, for General Porter, the Presi?
dent's private secretary, form a chain of evi?
dence that cannot be very easily nega?
tived. Mr. Grant is very much excited
over , this; ?aya he does not remember
his conversation with Gould at Corbin's
bouse, but is positive that there was nothing
slid looking to any speculation. In brief, he
blames Corbin for the whole thing, and says
that either Gould or Corbin bought bonds and
gold for the members of the President's family
of their own accord and without the knowl?
edge of said members. This is all very well
for Mr. Grant, but there are facts he cannot
answer, and which are decidedly against him;
and one is, that he ordered Mr. Boutwell, on
the day of the panic, to sell the government
gold; and another is, that he saw Jay Gould's
and Corbin's special messenger during his
j visit in Western Pennsylvania, and received
by him letters containing information of the
combination then forming. And above and
beyond all this is the avaricious disposition
shown by the President in accepting presents,
all the way from houses in Philadelphia and
Washington to bottom lands in Jersey. He
ought to remember this, before he casts the
first stone at his brother-in-law. Mr. Corbin
may be sinful enough, but how stands Mrs.
On every hand one can hear of the lobby
schemes and corruption and jobbery arranged
for the coming session of Congress. They are
almost without number. The purchase of San
Domingo and its annexation to the United
States, with a territorial delegate, the estab?
lishment of a national bank, and an interest in
the salt deposits there, form one of the jobs
that some of the Southern carpet-bag Con?
gressmen and a Hebrew lobby firm here have
already got up. It seems that if the island Is
actually purchased it will throw half a million
dollars into thc hands of a New York company
owning the salt deposits, which in turn is to
be distributed among the lobby. The President
has announced his opposition to the purchase,
and with a little exposure, Including the names
?of the Congressmen pledged to support it, the
bill will rall through. Then the whiskey men
are announced as desiring to get the tax
raised to one dollar a gallon, BO that by pur?
chasing a large portion of the stock on hand
they can realize a handsome sum. The pro?
position to tax ' cotton again is nothing but a
job. No one supposes that it will ever go
through Congress, but it gives a pretence to
the lobbyists to go South and raise a fund to
defeat lt. The Northern Pacific Railroad, the
Washington International Exhibition, even an
air-line railroad to New York, a railroad weet to
Cincinnati, and other BChemes almost too nu?
merous to mention, to say nothing of the tariff
and other old standing jobs, are matters in
which the cormorants, carpet-baggers, adven?
turers, bogus newspaper correspondents, clans
agents, State agents, 4c, already have their
General Belknap, the new Secretary of War,
19 expected here to-morrow, and will illustrate
in assuming his new position the versatility of
General Grant's most remarkable Cabinet. It
consists of seven members, and since the 4th
of March he has made eight changes. Secre?
tary Fish first relieved Washburne, Rawlins
succeeded Schofield, who was in turn suc?
ceeded by Sherman, who is this week suc?
ceeded by Belknap. A. T. Stewart was fol?
lowed by Boutwell, and Robeson succeeded
Borle. In all, counting Belknap, there have
been thirteen incumbents of Cabinet positions
since Grant was inaugurated. It is not un?
likely that before January another change will
be made, as Attorney General Hoar prefers a
judicial seat to that of a public prosecutor.
A very decided movement for a change in
the offices ol the Senate ie on foot. The com?
bination by which the present officials got in
last spring has fallen through of its own cor?
rupt weight. Judge Bond, of Baltimore, is a
a candidate for the secretaryship, and a New
York man for sergeant-alarms. General
Clarke, the old executive clerk, is likely to be
restored to his did place. Very Just complaint
is made that the present officials are engaged
in outside business. Gorham is said to have
an Interest in the Central Pacific Railroad, and
Morris, the Executive clerk, is publishing a
Radical sheet in South Carolina, and living off
of government advertisements, thereby draw?
ing, virtually, two salaries in violation of law.
He will undoubtedly be k ~ed sjit of office.
There is a vast deal of manufactured Cuban
news sent from here. The Baltimore San
seems to print, unknowingly, a good deal of
it; but you may rest assured that all reports of
Cabinet meetings favorable or unfavorable to
the Cuban question are bogus. *The adminis?
tration has sent the whole matter over to Con?
gress, and will develop its views only la the
annual message. Caleb Gushing, who is high
authority in matters of international law, and
who is suspected of writing many of Secre?
tary Fish's dispatches^has just given an opin?
ion which dampens the ardor of thc friends ol
Cuba very mach. He objects to recognizing
them because their constitution was made m
the United States, and because of their open
attempt In fitting out expeditions to embroil
this country with Spain and prematurely force
i recognition of Cuba.
The old saw that "uneasy iles the head that
fvears the crown," is most apt for Grant, now
known as the great American traveller. He
lad not been home from the springs two
weeks before he tramped off to a fair in
Northern Maryland, and now that be is back,
ie has decided to start off West again and
?ke a look at Kentucky. Jnst before Congress
meets he will probably go South, through
Charleston, Augusta and Mobile.
Two WeBtern members write that they have

and proceeded to quiet his excited assailant
by arresting him and putting him in the guard?
house. Sunday morning he was released at
the usual hour. Threats against Elliott con?

THE GOLD CONSPIRACY.
ITS DETAILS EXPLAINED BY OSE OF THE
BoutwelTs Complicity with the Bear
Ring-How he Sent Bank Inspectors to
the Tenth National to Create a Panic
And Succeeded in Helping ont the
"Loir* Short Interest.
Yesterday morning TUE NEWH printed cer?
tain important statements, showing the com?
plicity of members of the President's family
with the gold speculations. TIKJ New York
World gives an account of a further interview
of one of its reportera with Mr. Jay Gould,
in the course of which the fact was developed
that Secretary Boutwell has ?Uso been playing
his game; and that his actual operations have
avery different aspect when viewed in all
their different relations from whut has hitherto
either appeared or been suspected. What has
hitherto appeared has been mainly a clue to
the operations of the bull clique. Bul from
additional Information it looks as if the origi?
nators of the panic were the members of the
tear ring, with Secretary Boutwell as prime
THE BEAR RING.
But to give Mr. Jay Gould's own words :
You understand that there were two parties op?
erating. We know all about what the bull party
diu, for so far all the talk has l een about them,
and, in order to get on the right track of it, we
must loos at ine iwo fanes <u mc m-.-. j
no doubt that we have been overtrading,

ducts of the country. Now, we raiso
things-cotton, wheat, corn, butter, che *
great staples of the country, however, are
wheat, corn and tobacco. In cotton we c
toa certain extent with Egypt and India,
have a far greater competition in corn and
That competition comes from the Black a
Mediterranean seas. The competition ls s
between those countries and America tha

Mr. Goold. With gold at about l

THE BEARS FRIGHTENED.
Mr. Gould. The bulls never expected to c

that point the Radicals got frightened; beet
you see, Boutwell was unable to sell gold i

But now you can spend money because all

Mr. Gould. And lt was not that alone. '

loss of confidence. When the finance ministe:
a great government steps In to interfere ii
movement of the market, first on one side f
then on the other, he loses all respect. But, t
was saying about the bears-they were joined
the Radicals and the programme was to get Bc

Frank E. Howe was sent down to act as gui
over Boutwell. The Radicals invited parties M
were short of gold-there was Mr. Low, the
merchant, he was short. When he got up a
made a speech calling on the Secretary to i
gold, every man round the table was Instruct
to make a tremendous clapping of hands. I
after this meeting with Boutwell, the bears beg
to get discouraged, and endeavored to coi
their gold contracts. That made the panic wh:
carried up the price of gold. It was not t
balls who commenced the panic. I co
menced Belling gold at 137, and Bold up to 162.

you take 160 millions of short interest, with oi
16 millions of actual gold in the market, y
may soon get the bears frightened, because th
know the gold isn't there. They have sold wt
they have not got. So, as I have said, lt was t
bears who got frightened. There is another eic
of bears that took another way of getting out
the difficulty, and saved themselves from loi
They formed a combination here to make mon
scarce, and in that way to depress the price
gold and stocks. They went Into the market bu
lng all the morning, and, of course, in the arti
noon they wonld be the parties who had mon
to loan. Accordingly they did go In and sell, ai
they were the persons who produced the panic.
The reporter inquired whether they were aid
tn that by the Secretary directly.
HOW BOUTWELL CREATED THE PANIC.
Mr. Gould. When they were all ready for the
operations, they telegraphed to Washington
Mr. Boutwell to send on some bank inspecta
and put them into the Tenth National Bank. Jfi
intention was to break that bank. They did n
send the regular bank examiner, Mr. fallende
who knew that the bank was in a strong and sa
position, but they sent men from Washlngto
utter strangers-thc object being, In fact, to bret
the bank and create a panic. They knew that
was largely interested in the Tenth Nation
Bank, and that seems to me to show Boutwell
complicity in producing the panic. Certainly, tin
was the object.
Reporter. But what did the bear ring gain c
Mr. Gould. Why, or course, lt knocked dow
the price or gold. You see there was a spilt I
the ranks of the bears. The one party was di:
courged that Boutwell did not help them, for li
had at thc first told parties that he would not ii
terfere In Wall street, JTIe other party got pa
session of hinx, and he helped them to make
pa nie in the street. So you see there were tw
bear parties, both fighting to get possession c
Boutwell, but only one succeeded in weaning hli
over. I u'so hold that the government, in sellln
gold, has violated an express statute.
THE VIOLATED LAW OF 1862.
The clause In the act or 1862 says:
"And le it further enacted, That all duties 01
imported goods which shall be raid in coin or ii
notes pa va Me on demand, or in notes nercafte
authorized to bc received and by law recslvabl
lu payment as public dues, shall be applied tu
"First. To the pavmcnt in coin as the Interes
on the bonds and notes of the United State?.
"Second. To tbe purchase or payment or OIK
per centum or the entire debt or the Unitec
States, to be made within each fiscal year alte
the first day ol July. 18C2, which is to bc set apar
as a sinking rund, and the interest, or which sha!
in like mann, r be applied to the purchase or pay
mont or the public debt, as the Secretary of thi
Treasury shall from time to time direct.
"Third. The residue thereof to be paid into tht
Treasury of ttie Uni ted States."
Then, you see, it Ls to be "paid into thc Treasun
orthe United States"-not used in any gold specu"
latlon. What ls lt to be paid Into the Treasury o:
the United States for? Why, tor the same pur
pose that England and Frauce keep large reserve;
of bullion and coin in their vaults-to gu?rante?
the pay meut or their notes. If the Secretary
wanted to do a good thing for the country why
did he not sell gold at 160, instead of deferring
sales till the next day, when the price had sunk
to 130? There was just a difference of thirty pei
cent., which amounted to $1,200,000. I say thal
was a dead loss to the country.
BOUTWELL A CANDIDATE FOR THE PRESIDENCY.
Reporter. What could be Boutwell's motive in
all this ?<
Ma Gould. Undoubtedly political. Corbin told
me that Boutwell was to be the next candidate
of thc Republican party; and Boutwell was try?
ing to build himself up among the Radicals by
helping their bear interest. I don't think he had
any money in the affair. I think he was work?
ing for individual political interest. There ls no
doubt that whatever ht has done since he has
been Secretary or the Treasury has been knewn
to certain parties in Wall street. He has been
seeking to build himself up with the Radical
party. You rem mbcr how the Tribune caliei
upon him to help the Radicals.

-A correspondent of the Spectator thinks
the Dean of Carlisle a very unfit man to start
a crusade against science, because he is so ex?

Catholic and a priest The Revell and the
Avenir National see in this matter only a
family quarrel. One has faith or he has lt not;
there ls no middle ground possible. Every at?

morial, and thank you for it; but do you not
know that there are two kinds of vandalism,
the one of destruction, the other of restora?
tion ? Never has the Coliseum been more
beautiful than in the moving contrast of the
splendor of its past and the magnificence of
its ruins. To restore them would, lt seems to
me, be an artistic sacrilege, and would anni?
hilate the work of ages, only to produce a
poor and colorless counterfeit. Think no more
of it. caro mio." And the Baron thought no
more of it. .

of a deeply seated disease sf the Lungs by your
"ROHADALIS," I feel lt my duty to make the fact
known to you for the benefit of others. She suf?
fered nearly two yeare wita a hard cough, which
troubled her day and night; at last the emaciated

cough, told too plainly that lt was Consumption,
beyond question, eating at her vitals. Our physi?

vised to try your ROSADAMS as a Tonic, which she
did. Imagine my surprise and gratification when
I found ber appetite returning. Slowly she re?
gained her strength, her cough and night sweats
gradually ceased, and she is now, after taking
Ave bottles of your medicine, apparently as well
as ever. Yours, respectfully,

Their time has come and die they must. It bi
otherwise with man. For him the means of rein?

science. To recruit his exhausted energies and
fortify himself against the disorders generated
by the sudden depression of temperature and the
un w noisome exhalations of autumn, let him tone

give edge to his appetite with HOSTETTER'8

have no power to make him shiver and burn, to
affect bis Uver, to disorder his stomach or bis

tem active and dangerous. To the sufferer from
general debility, whether constitutional or aris?
