[SPECIAL TELEGRAM TO THE NEWS.]
COLUMBIA, Auguet 18.
The delegates to the Radical State Conven?
tion have already begun to come in. Some
arrived yesterday; more this afternoon. Quite
a number ot county delegates are quartered at
the rooms bf the I. 0. TJ. B., over which a flag
ls flying, and around and about which are con?
gregating the bummers and henchmen of the
various aspiring candidates. The rival chief?
tains from Charleston, Bowen and Mackey, are
quartered at the Columbia Hotel; their names
appearing In dangerous Juxtaposition upon
From the beat information I can gel, and I
presume lt may be relied upon, the struggle tor
the office of Governor ls pretty well narrowed
down io Moses and Chamberlain. Such is the
invariable opinion of the delegates and resl
dt?it Republicans here with whom I have con?
versed, and lt may be safely regarded ns the
true reading of the political horoscope at the
time of these presents. Chamberlain Is the
choice of the financial ring-Scott is his most
prominent supporter, and Neagle will lend
him what countenance be has. Hones ls the
choice ot tin lobbyists and the bribe-taking,
thieving legislative crew; "Honest" John Pat?
terson, of Blue Bldg?-, notoriety, Worthington,
Hage and the bummers generally rally around
MoBes. The Chamberlain combination ls,
perhaps, the most respectable, and thereiore
the more dangerous. They wonld do their
spiriting in a financial and dignified manner.
The Hoses craw is a heterogeneous mass, com?
posed of ali of the corrupt elements In and
around the legislative balls, from the pusil?
lanimous rogue who wonld sell Ms vote for
whatever lt will bring, (a drink, If nothing
else) to the committee manipulator and legis?
lative schemers of larger ambition.
H?ge, Worthington and Hoses dined with
Patterson to-day. Instead of Patterson buy*
lng Hoses off, as was tbougbt to be the cass a
few days ago, lt appears rather that Hoses bas
captured Patterson with the promise of the
United States senatoreblp.
The Bowen faction, lt is very generally be
llved, will support Hoses. Uackey is appa?
rently treating with Chamberiain. They were
oloseted together to-day. The oplulon now ls
that Moses has the Inside track. Money was
all that was lacked, and that be will now get
In abundance from Patterson. Nothing much,
however, can be ascertained until more of the
It 1B reported here that John Cochrane has
the Anderson and Pickens delegations lu tow
for Hoses, despite the efforts of Orr, Earle
and the other Reform Republicans in that sec?
The question now is what will the Orr-Cor
bln party do about ic. Neither Orr nor Corola
can hardly support Hoses or Chamberlain, and
they claim to represent Grant and the National
The county nominations here, with the ex?
ception of that for clerk of the court and tor
sheriff, are as bad as bad can be. Hiller is
nominated for clerk. Swygert, the nominee
for probate judge, knows nothing of Webster's
elementary spelling book, much less ol law.
The school commissioner is even more igno.
rant than the present Incumbent, Edwards.
There ls strong talk among the darkies of
holding another convention. It they do, the
candidates will propably be no belter, proba?
bly worse. There was not a single white man
In the late convention, and the blacks even
commenced quarrelling bitterly with the mu?
Senator F. A. Sawyer ls registered at the
Columbia Hotel. He takes no stock, 1 under?
stand, in either Hoses or Chamberlain. It ls
believed he will work with Orr and Corbin.
Lively times are anticipated in the conven,

THE WORM AT WORK.
DISCOURAGING REPORTS FROM THE
"Liverpool and New York had Better
Shorten their Estimates."
The following extracts from leading papers
show the present condition of the cotton crop
in Mississippi. Alabama and Louisiana:
Raymond Gazette, 7th: The fears enter?
tained tor the last month as to the early ap?
pearance of the enemy of the cotton crop are
about to be realized. There can be no doubt
now but that the cotton caterpillar has ap?
peared all over the Southern States. They
are not as yet In such numbers as to desolate
the fields, but lt must be borne In mind that
the hist crop IB always In limited numbers,
and that the damage ls done by their progeny.
The rains have continued so long that lt Is be?
yond doubt this pest will destroy a considera?
nte portion of the orop. Should the weather
be favorable for their propagation, even a
short time longer, there is great danger we
may not only see small patches here and there
stunted by the worms, but whole districts
swept cleao, and but one quarter or one-third
of tue average yield obtained.
Woodville Republican, 6th: The worms are
through this county on every plantation. The
crops will not come up to anticipated results.
Columbus Index, Sh: Rust has appeared lu
many places, the worm has announced bis ar?
rival, and the heated term ls causing the
squares to drop off.
Mead ville Journal, 8ih: The prospect fora
Kood cotton crop ls still very dutering. No
further reports from the cotton worm.
Natchez Democrat, 8th: Prospect for the
cotton crop In this region continues to be
more discouraging. Worms are apnearlng in
large numbers on some places on both sides
of the river.
Yazoo Banner, 9th : Captain Z. B. Stutts, a
respectable planter In the Yazoo Swamp, near
Ibis place, brought in a sialk of colton on
Monday last, which was completely ruined by
worms. He also brought in some of the
worms, which the planters pronounce not to
be the caterpillar; but if lt destroys cotton
more effectually than that peBt, lt ls at least as
much to be dreaded. Every form and boll
were eaten off the stalk exhibited, and nota
leaf disturbed. The ends of the limbs were
cut off. As this worm does not contine Itself
to cotton, but eats grass, we hope that the
damage il may do may not reach the polut that
some men greatly fear. We also hear ot the
caterpillar on several plantations, but thus far
have done but little harm.
Enterprise Courier, 10th : Though we hpar
of the appearance ot the cotton worm on many
plantations in this section, our reports as yet
do not represent them as doing any considera?
ble damage. The next two weeks, however,
will tell the tale. Aside from ibis worm, the
cotton prospect at presenr, we think, ls decid?
edly the finest since I860.
Liberty Herald, 10th: Reports of the cotton
worms come In from every quarter of the
county. As yet they have not appeared in
sufficient numbers to cause any serious alarm,
bul a few days eunice for them to bring up
reinforcements without number. Should they
begin their ravages In earnest any time during
the present month, the damage will be almost
Union Spring Times, 7ih: It ls difficult to
estimate the injury already done to the grow?
ing cottou crop or the probable devastation of
the caterpillar, which abounds In every por?
tion of the country. Allowing for rust,
drought and floods, all of which have affected
and are affecting the cotton crop, and that, in
addition, the worms will pretty effectually
clean the Held* within the next three weeks,
it ls believed that there will be a somewhat
larger cotton yield in the county than there
was last year. Reports from almost every
section of the colton belt confirm the presence
of the caterpillar, but generally they have not
been verv destructive.
Montgomery Advertiser, 9th: The army
caterpillar, that pest ol' the cotton lands, has
made its appearance in Macon County, and ls
vigorously at work on plantations near Tus?
Greenville Advocate, 9th: The recent pro?
tracted rains have injnr the cotton crop in
this county very materially. The stalks are
rapidly shedding, and should the worms prove
as numerous and disastrous as nome predict,
the crop In our county will fall far below the
expectations of the planter.
Greensboro' Beacon, 10ib: As a natnral
consequence of so much rain in July, the cot?
ton worms are appearing in large numbers.
The army worm appeared some two or turee
weeks earlier than usual. South of this, on
the black lands, they have already done seri?
ous damage. The cotton crop on the rich
black lauds of this section will certainly be
materially Injured by the worm, and the yield
tall greatly below the estimate made two
weeliH ago. As yet lhere ls but little com?
plaint of the worms on the sandy lands; but,
with the weather we are now having, and
have had for ten days past, there ls strong
reason to apprehend their appearance ROOD,
and In large numbers, on the sandy and all
other kinds of land?.
Greenville South Alabamian, 10th : That most
destructive worm, the caterpillar, ls ruining
the cotton crop in this section. Since our last
Issue we have heard at leasl of twenty planta?
tions which are almost totally destroyed.
Tuscaloosa Times, 7th: Reporis of the cot?
ton crop still continue favorable. In this
county the yield, lt is believed, will be an
average one, but the aggregate crop ol the
Stale, it ls thought, will fall much below an
Demopolls News, 10th: We learn from a gen?
tleman living in Linden that the colton worm
has made Its appearance In that vicinity also.
The Monroe Telegraph of the 10th says: A
friend writes from Columbia, on the 6th In?
stant, that the "cotton worms have appeared
In large quantities throughout our parish."
Louisiana Farmer (Ouachlia Parish) 2d :
We regret io learn fsom nearly every quarter
that the caterpillar has made his appearance.
As yet no damage hos been done by them; but
great fears are entertained that they will at
their next webbing do much Injury.
Rayvllle Beacon, 10th : Crops are still very
good In this parish notwithstanding the coin
plaint of the worms. Ii ts not a fixed fact
yet that they will injure the cotton much.
Vernon Standard, Jackson Parish : From
the best lolormution that we have been able
to obtain, the cotton worm has made its ap?
pearance In this paush. It is In very small
numbers thus far, doing but little damage,
and nobody appears lo be seriously alarmed
at its presence.
Maust5 el d Reporter : On account of tho co D -
tinned dry weather the prospects for a cotton
crop In this section are not as flattering as
we had boped for. The cotton . orin has made
Its appearance in some place-- \n the parish,
but not yet In sufficient force Lt do any very
Claiborne Democrat, 6th: There Is no shut?
ting our eyes any longer to the mournful fact
that the army worm ts in our cotton fields. A
field near Fort Hudson, on the Norwood place,
ls eaten so badly as to begin to look ragged.
Some confidently assert that the worms can
be found In every field in the parish. They
came in 1867 about the 1st ot September, au l
before the 10th of that month Hie crops were
Alexandria Democrat: Our reports of the
progress of the caterpillars does not vary
much from our last On the several places on
Bayou Rapides which were much damaged,
they have continued their work of destruction
and nearly cleaned them up. They seem con?
fined pretty much In one locality, that Is In a
ravaging form, but they are everywhere In
some state, more or less". The majority of
accounts alill have them webbing up, and will
do no harm until the 15th or 30tb.
Madison Journal, 6tb: We have no chance
to report In the cotton crop this week. We
hear that the cotton worm has been lound on
all the back plantations of this parish, except,
perhaps, on a few small isolated places; and
the crops generally are in such a backward
cond 1 lion-necessarily from the fact that a
great deal of lt was planted late-that worms
will doubtless prove very desiruclive. Opin?
ions vary as to the condition of the early crop,
some protesting that lt ls indifferent, and
others that it Is likely to be as prolific as cot?
ton planted early In the season.
Shreveport Telegram, 7th : We learn from
an agent ol the Telegram, who has been irav
elling extensively ihrongn several of the neigh?
boring parishes within the past two weeks,
that the cotton crop is now suffering terribly
from the drought and that shedding has set
ID. He says tbat the prospect for a full crop
has been Badly interfered with, and that un?
less there ls a timely rain and a late fall, the
crop will lose over a third ot Its fruit. From
various sources wo hear tbe same report, and
we take lt that lt ls true. Liverpool and New
York had better shorten their estimates of the
growing crop In consequence. We are not
near out ol the woods yet, and we very much
mistake ll these authorities have not got their
estimates entirely too high. The crop through'
out this dlHtrlct will be cut short fully one
third by the drought.

TETE PEABODY EDUCATION FUND.
Proceedings of the Sixth Annual meet?
ing of tue Trastees.
The Hon. William Aiken has sent to this
office a copy of the report ot the proceedings
ot the sixth annual meeting of the trust ees of
the Peabody Education Fond, held at Boston
June 25, 26 and 27. The following ls a sketch
ot the report:
Of the board or sixteen persons appointed
hy Mr. Peabody In 1667, two have since died,
Admiral Farragutand William C. Rives, whose
places have been tilled by the election ot S.
Watson, of Tennessee, and A. H. H. Stuart, of
Virginia, and Mr. E. A. Bradford resigned,
and his place has been filled by th? election
ot General Richard Taylor, of Louisaaa.
Twelve trustees were present throughout the
meeting, three of the remaining lour belog
now absent In Europe. It was ordered that
the annual meetings be held hereafter In New
York, during the month or July, the day to be
fixed by the chairman, Robert C. Winthrop,
and the general agent, Dr. Barons Sears, after
consultation with the members.
The long and Interesting report of the gen?
ni ageot was read. It ls dated at Staunton,
Va., June 24th, 1872, and reviews the educa?
tional work of the year In the States where
t he Peabody education fund is applicable. Dr.
Sear's i ravels and correspondence give him an
Intimate knowledge ol the legislation and the
practical efforts at organizing public Instruc?
tion In the Sonthern States. He says that
though the practical application of the princi?
ple of general education by public authority
and the adjustment of plans ot operation to
the condition and wants of the people ot each
State are susceptible of great improvement,
and require mucb consideration, the principle
itself may be considered as pretty well settled.
It is only a question of lime, then, until the
South shall have a system of public Instruc?
tion, of which ihe whole couutry will be
proud. As Dr. Sears very careluliy points
out, there are many difficulties yet to oe over?
come. The legislation in many ot the otates
ls cnide; the scnool fund in some bas been
plundered by carpet-baggers; la some places
suitable taxes cannot be levied, owing to uu
peneaiwi matutes; in others the Influential
lawyers andousiuees on*, nf vu? couuiry uguu
the fax levy for this purpose. Despite all
these drawbacks, the general agent ot the
Pdabody education fund takes a hopeful view
ot the matter.
The total amount appropriated lo aid ol
public Inst ruction lu the South since February,
1871, ls $141,350. Dr. Sears estimates the
amount contributed by the people themselves
at about $700,000. It should be remarked in
passing that by the terms ot the bequest no
moneys can be and none have been appropri?
ated to any college or academy or to any pri?
vate, pay or sectarian school. Only those
public schools In operation under the superin?
tendence ol State and county officals can
claim any assistance from this fund. The
superintendents of public instruction lu the
various States act as agents of Peabody's do?
nation in their respective Stales. The follow?
ing Is the scale accordlnz to which appropria?
tions are made: For well-regulated public
schools continued about ten mom hs of the
year and having a regular attendance of not
less than 100 pupils averaging 85 per cent., the
agent pays $300; 150 pupila averaging 85 per
cent., i he agent pays $450; 200 pu pi. s aver?
aging 85 per cent., me ageut pays $600; 250
pupils averaging 85 per cent,, the agent pays
$800; 300 pupils averaging 85 per cent., the
agent pays $1000.
Virginia has 411,104 children between the
ages of five and twenty-one years; of these
130,460 attend the public schools winch have

.A Gallant Fight
The New York Herald gives Ihe following
account of the discussion In that city, Thursday
night, between W. U. Saunders, of Baltimore,
and H. H. Garnet, ol New York, colored
champions respectively of the Greeley and
One of the most extraordinary meetings
ever witnessed In any city was held in the
Cooper Institute Thursday night. Four thou?
sand colored people gathered together, not?
withstanding the Intense heat of the night, to
listen to a discussion between the Rev. Henry
Hlgnlaod Garnet, of this city, and W. ?.
Saunders, of Baltimore, Maryland, both col?
ored, upon the relative merits and services of
TJ. S. Grant and Horace Greeley. The debate
has been much talked ot and long considered,
but after sundry disappointments and much
correspondence the preliminaries were finally
arranged. Cooper Institute was engaged, the
expenses were guaranteed, and the colored
orators were afforded an opportunity of talk?
ing the matter out, much to toe satMaciion of
the negroes In particular and the public gen?
A BRAVE T?JK.
Saunders, who, when the task he bas
undertaken to convince a half-clvllized peo?
ple, may be called the leader of the forlorn
hope, espoused the cause of Greeley, and Mr.
Garnet, the distinguished pastor of Shiloh
Presbyterian Church, had the much more con?
genial task ot presenting the claims ot General
Granito an audience who were In entire sym?
pathy with him and his principles.
When eight o'clock came it was evident that
the audience was entirely one-sided, and that
the Liberal orator had not the slightest chance
of getting a lair hearing, the feelings ot tue
negroes being evidently wrought up to the
highest pitch of excitement by ibe Influences
which have been brought to bear upon them
since the discussion was announced to come
oft the narrow minds ot the great majority
present being evidently unable to comprehend
what an orderly debate meant.
THE GLADIATORS APPEAR.
Punctually to the hour the colored gladia?
tors came upon the platform, amid enthusias?
tic cheering for the Rev. Henry Highland
Garnet. On the motion of the Rev. W. Bm 1er,
the chair was taken by Mr. I. J. Yullie, cashier
ol the Freedmen's Bank, a bullet-headed
negro, who presided over the meeline with all
ihe Impartiality lt was possible to exercise In
an audienoe which acted like a gathering of
Mr. Halton, a colleague of Saunders, was
appointed secretary. Tne articles of discus?
sion were read-whether the ascendency ol
the Liberal Republican party and the election
of Horace Greeley, or the re election of Gene?
ral Grant, would be most conducive to the
welfare of the country and the proper admin?
istration of Justice, without distinction of race,
color or party. The chairman announced ihe
terms of the discussion, an hour for Saunders
In opening, an hour and a half for Garnet, In
reply, and half an hour to Saunders to close.
PANDEMONIUM BROKE LOOSE.
But the colored rowdies took no heed ol the
action, and one hideous looking ruffian struck
a policeman for a simple remonstrance.
Saunders went on to show what the past re?
cord of Mr. Greeley had been, and how, In
conjunction with Sumner-[terrific groans for
Sumner]-he had borne the brunt aud heat of
the battle against slavery, when lt was a
crime to be an abolitionist. [Cheers for Gree?
ley, counter cheers for Grant, cat calls and
waving of handkerchiefs by the ladles and
flags by the visitors.] In striking language
Saunders showed the incapaoity of Grant, his
neglect of the colored men and his Democratic

ence would have nothlog against ?traut, and
any statements mad? concerning him were re?
ceived with derisive laughter, ihe while
men In the hall made a good show for Saund?
ers, and fer a time succeeded In securing for
him a partial hearing; but the wild blood of
the Africans was aroused, and they soon burst
through the little decorum that had hitherto
According to the terms previously arranged,
the opening speaker was lo be allowed an
hour, but more than half Ibat lime was con?
sumed lu wanton and uncalled-lor Interrup?
tions. As an instance of the discernment dis
filayed, the following will suffice: Uaunders,
n the course ot bis speech, alluded to tue fact,
which might be apparent to all, that God
freed the slaves, but this sentiment, lu com?
mon with everything else uttered, was cor?
dially hissed. Had saunders been a Demos?
thenes, be could not bave borne up against
such a torrent of opposition, and before the
close of his hour he was visibly exhausted. Il
was only by aa extraordinary exercise of
lungs that he could make the closing sen?
tences ol lils first address audible to ihe re?
porters, and he resumed his seat amid ap?
plause from the few irtends he had in the
hall, and a babel of shouts ot opprobrium
from the large majority opposed to him.
Rev. Mr. Garnet, a lull Hedged African,
wnose blood Is uncontaminated with any
white mixture, and whu has the reputation of
being one ot tue ablest men In the elly, rose
to reply, aud was greeted wi iii enthusiastic
cheetlug, clapping ot hands and waving ot
handkerchiefs, watch were again and nguiu
renewed, mingled with counter cheer? for
Greeley ana Saunders. Mr. Garuet com?
menced by saying that no matter what the
result of the discussion would be, he should
always treat Mr. Saunders willi the respect he
entertained fur him as a friend, and iu the
same breath proceeded to give a scathing pic?
ture of his motives and character, to the In?
tense delight nt the grinning ..niggers," who
thought the jokes of the gentleman replete
with wit and uumor. Garnet showed an ad?
mirable knowledge of ihe audience he bad to
deal with, and, in a speech replete with sar?
casm, oratory, mimicry and u tincture of buf?
foonery, held up Saunders to the ridicule or
his congregation, whose delight knew no
Tne reverend gentleman called frequently
for cheers for Graat, the Freedmen's Stvings
Bank, the memory of Lincoln and Stamou
and John Brown, whose soul ls m irching on.
He did not attempt to answer the arguments ot
Saunders, but treated him in a manuer which,
considering the audience he had to deal with,
was simply admirable. It ls ea<y lo under?
stand how bis reputation as ar. effective minis?
ter and revival stirrer up is so good, and his
political effort was In the same railo of excel?
lence. Ol course, ll it was addressed to au
audience capable of measuring ir, it would not
go for much, butas an appeal to heated pre?
judices coming fiercer has ever been uttered
in Cooper Institute. Mr. Garnet has not much
oratorical style, but his powers as a mimic
and his earnestness amply compensate lor the
deficiency. He spoke for upwards ot an hour,
recalled the spirits of the Republicans gone to
glory, exhausted the great names which the
parly still contains, and after an eloquent
peroration sat down as much exhausted as a
A WILD SCENE.
Long belore Garnet had concluded it was
apparent that the feeling ot the negroes was
worked up beyond the power of control, and
when Sauuders rose to make ihe flual speech
ihe audience ran at him, many of them rushed
io the door, and Hie balance who remained
yelled like demons. Mr. Garnet and the chair?
man endeavored to secure order, but their e!
fort was unwalilng. The undaunted Saund?
ers, however, would not be conquered. He
threw off his f-hirt collar, flung back lils coat,
and advanced to the iront of the platform tu
encounter a scene which would bo a discrace
io a party ol'cannibals. The police, seriously
alarmed lor his gaiety, grasped their clubs
more firmly and ranged themselves around the
stage. Every moment the situation became
more perilous for Saunders, and grave fears
were entertained that he would be taken
bodily from ihe platlorm and mobbed. He
succeeded In giving utterance to a few dis?
jointed sentence?, atid after a forcible rebuke
to the uncharlty of Rev. Garnet, whom he ac?
cused of using his profession as a cloak for his
foul play, resumed his Bear, having elicited
the admiration of every Impartial mind in the
audience for his coolness and daring.
When the closing scene of all came, a rush
was made for the platform, and, in an instant,
lt was crowded with a demonstran -e group,
some congratulating Saunders a"d others
manifesting a strong determination to go lor
bis scalp. All this time cheering was going
on for Garnet and Grant, the reverend gentle?
man being fairly embraced by his admirers,
male and female, after their kind.
CHARGE OF THE POLICE.
The policemen eventually had to clear the
stage, which was done wlih difficulty, a num?
ber of bullet-headed ruffians showing a e t nong
disposition to resist, but a vigorous use ol
muscle and clubs finally cleared the hall of
whai was probably the most unruly audience
lt has ever contained, and thus ended the
great colored political religions discussion.
The feeling was overwhelmingly with Garnet,
but Saunders has gained a moral victory whlob
should be more gratifying to him than the
senseless yells and fiendish applause which
were given to bis opponent The arrange?
ments of Captain Byrnes for the preservation
pf the peace were admirable, and lt is entire?
ly owing to his own precautions that no dis?
turbance took place. After leaving the ball,
the combatants were lollowed by their frlendB
and enemies, who made the vicinity ot Eighth
street melodious with unearthly music.

CHARLESTON, S. C., August 16.
TO THE EDITOR OP THE NEWS.
In your issue of this morning you give the
opportunity to such persons as have drawn
money from the appropriation for the armed
force to come forward and explain.
I am charged with having received tbe In?
significant sum of forty-eight dollars, and sub?
jected to the inquiry If I, wllh others, who
have drawn very large amounts from that
appropriation, am a member of the armed
force. I am tree to assert that I have never
performed aoy services that could be legiti?
mately charged to the "armed force," nor have
I any knowledge ot ever receiviug a single
cent from that appropriation. If the amount
of money charged against me, as having been
received from that source, has been received
by me at all, it has been tor services rendered
ot another character, and paid out of that ap?
propriation without my knowledge; and I do
not believe even that.
I would bit very glad if the parties who have
rendered this exhtoit would State the lime
and other facts connected with the payment.
Respectfully. W. J. WHIPPER.

THE TRUTH LEAKING OUT..
I PRESIDENT GRANT AS THE PATRON
OF FORGERS AND SWINDLERS.
The Way the Military liing Plundered
the Publie and Choked Off Investiga?
fFrom tbe New York San.]
i Wheo, by an arrangement with President
Johnson, General Grant displaced Hr. Stanton
and became secretary of war ad Interim, en?
tering upon the personal control of the war
department, he at once gare peculiar atten?
tion to three objects, as follows:
I. Paying In fud large sums of money,
amounting In che aggregate to half a tuniloa
or more, which had oeen retained by Mr. Stan?
ton on account of frauds In mixed grain fur?
nished for the army of the Potomac. The
frauds having been detected and part of the
money restored by the immediate agents o?
the fraudaient contractors, in whose hands lt
was, Mr. Stanton also withheld farther sums
which would have been due bad the frauds
not been lound out and proved. These sums
Grant paid in full.
II. Tue secoua of Grant's three objects was
ihe transfer to a ring of speculators in Cali?
fornia-a certain military ring hud become In?
terested In the affair-of a tract ol land
known as Military Reservation No. 7, com?
manding Mare Island Navy Yard. This prop?
erty, whose possession was essential to the
military safety ot tbe navy yard, was worth
$10,000,000. Mr. Stautun had sternly re?
pelled aud resisted every overture looking to
its traorier; but Grant, after he became sec?
retary ot war ad interim, promptly surren?
dered lt, the government receiving between
$3000 and $1000 only.
III. xne intra uoject to which General
Grant especially devoted himself wheo he be?
came secretary of war ad Interim was the pro?
tection of hts old associate and crony, Pay?
master-General Brice, in carrying through
and concealing the payment of a large amount
of public money upon forged bouuty claims.
Tuese forged claims bad been got up by a
claim agent in Washington, named .Lowen?
dal, wno bad presented them to Brice, Irom
whom he had recelveO various payments, one
ol wnlch, and not the only one, bad been
proved before a committee or the House of
aepresentatlves lo a m ou Lt to about lorty
seven thousand dollars.
Grant was exceedingly Intimate with Brice,
and they were bom members of a coterie
mich met habitually for toe purposes of re?
creation In the rooms of General a. Ingulla, on
Pennsylvania avenue. Brice being paymaster
general of the army, had embarked extensive?
ly In me business oi paying out the money ia
bis charge upon Lowenthai's forgeries. Ii tb?
fact mat they were forgeries had not been
known to him be tore the papers were first pre?
sented at bis office, lt bad certainly been dis?
closed io him and established by tbe moat con?
clusive evidence shortly aiterward. Toe clerks
through whose hands these forged papers had.
passed bad reported to Brice that they weie
forged, aud had been rebuked lor their offici?
ousness. An agent appointed by the defraud?
ed soldiers-ali of whom were colored men
bad come to Washington and bad exhibited
to the paymaster-general clear evidence
ot the crime oi Lowe nt hal; but some con?
venient friend had notified ihe forger, and be
had gone to New Orleans, where he had es?
tablished an office lor the collection ot new
discharge papers on which to base more
forged Dounty claims. Thither the agent of
ihe soldiers followed, and the fact that Low
enthal was engaged In the preparation of
forged claims for bounty money was duly re?
ported by General Sheridan at Washington.
More thau this, a subordinate paymaster, dis?
covering the fact that checks to a large
amount bad been issued from the paymaster
general's office upon forged papers, hastened
io stop the payment of mese cbecks at the
New York sub-treasury. General Brice learn
fissue ane w ro"r?^r"re'mov?ng1 the
1 directing the payment of the checks to go on.
The affair got partially Imo me newspapers,
and having now oeen brought to the notice of
Secretary Stanton, he Induced some of his
friends in the House of Bepresen tail vee to
move an investigation by a committee of tbat
body. The committee was appointed, and Mr.
Stanton detailed clerks who were familiar
with the pay department to assist in Um In?
quiry. Evidence of the most damning chanc?
ier was taken, and though the Investigation
was not completed, the report of the commit-'
lee was partially prepared. Hereupon Grant
came into office as secretary of war ad interim,
and his first act was to dismiss from me ser?
vice the clerks whom Mr. Stanton bad detailed
to aid the committee. At the same time his
friends in the House of Representatives got
through a resolution, whloh, without mention?
ing this committee, effectually stopped Us la?
bors and prevented me printing of the evi?
dence it had taken and me presentation of Its
Upon this occurrence two of me members of
the committee waited upon General Grant at
ihe War Department, to urge bim io withdraw
his opposition and allow the Investigation io
commue. Tney represented to bim plainly
the nature of the testimony already taken.
They told him that lt established the faa tbat
forged claims had been paid by Paymaster
General Brice, be knowing them io be
forgeries. Tney represented to bim the duty
ol'ihe Republican party and of all the officers
of the Government to arrest such lrauds and
to make the Administration honest. To all
this Grant turned a deaf ear, rudely rebuffing
the gentlemen who made the appeal, ana
stolidly evincing his determination to sustain
Brice in the paying ot these forgeries, and aa
tar as p o ss i ole to conceal me laces from public
Baffiea m their attempt with General Grant,
the gentlemen Interested in the investigation
at ter wards went to President Johnson. It was
near the close of his term of office, and when
he had heard the facts, Mr. Johnson told them
that the only thing he could do in tbe prem?
ises was to retire Brice. This be did,but ten days
later, wben President Grant was inaugurated,
his very tl rsi act, performed before the appoint?
ment oi his Cabinet, was to issue a new order
restoring Brice to the office of paymaster?
The tte ts in this case, with the official docu?
ments, are tully set forth In tho letter ot our
Washington correspondent, published this
morning. That letter Includes also the. sup?
pressed report of the special committee cf me
House of Representatives, precisely the same
in form and language as the committee lett lt.
