The Court of Claims to-day delivered
on opinion in 'the cose of Alexander L.
P. Green, who, in 1802, was domiciled
in Nashville, but just before the capture
of that city went further South, taking
with him a large amount of money of a
flrni for whom he was an endorser.
When leaving, he was possessed of cer?
tain buildings in Nashville, which in
1664 were seized bv the Supervising
Treasury Agents as abandoned property.
The claimant averred, in his petition,
that he was always a loyal citizen, but
this, the Court said, did not strengthen
his case, as he voluntarily entered the
enemy's lines. The act of seizure of the
property was a war measure, and it made
no difference whether it was seized
by the enemy or by a Treasury agent
The claimant sought to recover on the
ground of an implied contract and the
liability of the Government for the acts
of its officers. The court say no action
can be maintained on that ground, and
that if the claimant was entitled to re?
cover, he ought to have prosecuted his
case under the abandoned property Act,
which he failed to do. The case was
dismissed. The court also decided the
case of the Corlies Steam Engine Com ?
pany. The claimant had contracted
with the Navy Department for the con?
struction of steam engines;' subsequently
the Department decided not to complete
the engines, and in accordance with a
written agreement, the company de?
livered the boilers, engines and appurte?
nances At the Boston Navy Yard in their
unfinished condition. The court,
through Chief Justice Drake, said
the agreement between the claim?
ant and the Navy Department was
singularly clear, and altogether free from
taint It was the duty of the Govern?
ment to comply strictly with its obliga?
tions to the contractor. Judgment was
given in behalf of the claimant to the
amount of $257,688. A motion was made
by the Assistant Attorney-General for a
new trial in the Elgee cotton case.

Lottery Swindle.?The Postmaster
Generol issued the following order Fri
[day: "It having been reported to me
that a certain L. D. Sine, of Cincinnati,
in tho State of Ohio, is engaged in con?
ducting a gift enterprise and scheme for
the disposal of money and personal pro?
perty by lot, chance or drawing, thereby
to obtain money through the mails; and
being satisfied from the evidence before
me, that the said L. D. Sine is so en
gaged, I do hereby forbid the payment
y the postmaster at Cincinnati to the
said L. D. Sine of any postal monev order
drawn to the order of him, the said L. D.
Sine; and the said postmaster is hereby
directed to inform tho remitters of tho
said postal money orders that the pay?
ment thereof has been forbidden, and
that the sum of said money will bo re?
turned on the presentation of a duplicate
money order applied for and obtained
under the regulations of the department.
And upon the same evidence, tho post?
master at the city of Cincinnati is hereby
instructed to return all registered letters
which shall arrive at his office, directed
to the said L. D. Sine, to the postmasters
at the office at which they wero originally
mailed, with t!*e word 'fraudulent' plainly
written or stamped Upon the outside of
such letter."
The Rev. J. M. Dawson, a Presbyterian
clergyman of San Francisco, has been
dismissed from his charge by his presby?
tery, becauso he has been caught dab?
bling very extensively in stock gambling
and flirting with the girls. Late de-'
velopments of the case show that a num?
ber of other clergymen made him their
agent to pursue the 'ujnis futuuH of bo?
nanza wealth. Invariably, the money
?laced in the gambling clergyman's
ands failed to produce anything to the
owners, and the reverend speculators arc
said to have "squealed" considerably.
Dawson has made about $100,000 by his
stock speculations.
Charles E. Lawrence, ex-Revenue In?
spector, who was brought back from Eu?
rope tho other dav, charged with smug?
gling silks into New York, is suffering
under the weight of 130 indictments,
upon which he will require $500,000 to
secure his release from jail. His frauds
were perpetrated- by entering cases of
valuable silks as corsets. Tho cases of
corsets were sent to tho public stores for
appraisement, and tho remaining cases,
which contained the silks and laces,
were delivered to Lawrence and his
partners. It is estimated that by their
arrangements over $1,500,000 were lost
to the United States Treasury.
Very probably the unwillingness of
Governor Hartranft to send the military
into the coal district of Pennsylvania, to
suppress tho lawlessness of the miners,
arises from tho fact that these people
have all threatened to vote against him
at the approaching gubernatorial elec?
tion, if he rann, and it is considered
certain he will. They are very much
disgusted because Hartranft showed n
disposition to coerce them. There are
25,00 ' voters among these banditti, a
large number of whom are Radicals, and
if they all go against Hartranft it will
have a powerful o fleet upon'the result of
the election.
The free zone of Mexico extends from
the mouth of the Rio Grande 800 miles
up that river and about six miles inland
on the Mexican side. It is the home of
lawless men and free lances, and appears
to owe no allegiance to any flag but that
of the free-booter. Foreign goods are
admitted free of customs duty and
thence passed into Texas and portions
of Mexico. It is by these bandits and
smugglers that the recent raids into Texas
for plunder have been made. It is a nest
of foul birds, and if the Mexican Govern?
ment will not or cannot break it up, the
United States Government should do no
at once and decisively.
Mr. Dendy has been arrested. Just as
we expected, upon the appearance of
Uncle Joo Crews in town. We saw him,
and in a very few words it was discovera?
ble that he was up here for no good pur?
pose. Wonder if he accomplished his
purpose? Mr. Dendy is at large on bail,
and the prosecutions against Uncle Joe
for his many sins are likely to proceed,
notwithstanding his procuring the arrest
of Mr. Dendy. Uncle Joe has opened
the fight, ana we can tell him that every
track he makes now, or has made, is
being looked after.?QrtenvtUe Xeu>$.
Col. R. S. Duryea, of Charleston, died

and highly respected.
I' The* Pxawttno.?It is said that when a
Spaniard eats fruit he always plants the
seed thereof for the benefit of posterity.
As a result no country is ko beautifully
blessed with fruit as Spain. The Mayor
of Topoko, Kansas, appears to be im?
bued with a similar unselfishness. One
afternoon last week, at his request, all
business was suspended in tho town and
the whole population went to work and
planted in the town about 1,000 shade
trees of several varieties. This is better
than "spelling bees."
Win. Russell, a widower, aged thirty
years, living at Nowbury, Mass., quar?
reled with a younger brother in his
father's house, yesterday morning, and
his mother, aged sixty, interfering, he,
seized a shoe-knife and nearly severed
her head from her body, killing her in?
stantly. He then attacked tho father, and
would have killed him but for the in?
terference of tho neighbors. The younger
brother and father were both badly
wounded?the former, it is thought, fa?
tally.
Alas! alas! for the colored Republican
of Kentucky. He cun got no high seat
in the temple; he can get no place on
tho ticket. When he tries to speak they
put him down, they sit on him, they
squelch him and make his life a burden
to him. He is slaughtered in the house
of his friends. Yet ho and his colored
brethren constitute five-sixths of the
Republican party in Kentucky. Is there
no way for the poor colored man to get
his rights??Louisville Courier-Journal.
The Boston Xeim says: President
Grant has fixed his mind upon doing
what no other President of the republic
ever did, to wit: Getting 0 second en?
dorsement of the people; and while he
keeps his square jaws set. speaking no
word and making no sign, he has entered
upon the campaign with the same dog?
ged pertinacity which, as a soldier,
made him successful. This has a long
time been apparent to those who, having
eyes, made use of them.
For the first time in fifteen years reli?

Washington. During the late war it was
occupied by Union troops as a stable,
and fell into dilapidation, until last
{fear, some gentlemen of New York,
earning the condition, had it rebuilt in
handsome style.
The investigation into the construction
of the Chicago Custom House building,
which is partly finished, shows that the
contractor, Mueller, put a quantity of
rotten Cincinnati stone into the walls,
which is now crumbling like brown
sugar. Ex-Supervising Architect Mullet
allowed this stuff to go in, and $1,000,000
worth of work will have to be demo?
lished.
The turbulent miners in Pennsylvania
seem to have plenty of means at their
command, in spite of their assertions of
wrongs and impecuniosity. Last week
the total amount received by the strikers
from their brethren elsewhere was $T>0,
000. This is raised by a heavy taxation
on the men who are at work, and it goes
to keep these brigands in bread and
butter and deviltry.
