CLAIMS OM MEXICO.-It is stated that
American claims against Mexico, to tho
amount of 800,000,000, xviii be presented
before the commission appointed to ad?
just" such claims. No doubt this amount
will bo vastly reduced, yet a good many
millions aro certain to bo allowed, enough
unquestionably to bo considered by tho
Federal Government ns authorizing a
demand on Mexico for the transfer of
any portion of her territory that may be
demanded. How many .slices of Mexico
will tbo Government take? And from
what portions of her body will it carve
thom? asks the Louisville Courier-Jour?
nal. Will it cut off a few rump-steaks,
or be satisfied only with "the pound of
flesh nearest the heart?" General Rosen
Bcranz, our Minister to Mexico, proposed
?ki a lute communication to the Govern
Kaent at Washington that we should ne?
gotiate with Mexico for a couple of her
States, paying her a few millions in gold,
' which she grently needed. Tho worthy
old General didn't seem to know how
easily wc could take whatever of Mexico
we might want without the trouble >of
raising the gold. Tho General is an old

T>ecial to the New York Times, a radical
frgnn, says that Secretary Boutwell, of
tao Treasury Department, proposes to
order the returns of the sales of confis

the United States officers have pur?
sed such property sold nuder their
"Viority at low prices and then neglect
Ctlo account for the scauty proceeds.
W\havo no doubt that official villainy

Washington has the virtue nod the nerve
to make or bring about an exposure of
the rascality and tho rascals. It is be?
lieved that a large amount of peculation
iu that lino could be discovered in South
Carolina with but little trouble.

Radical Stato Convention in Tennessee,

This is one of tho representatives of
what calls itself tho "decency party."
EXPENSIVE ITEMS FOB A REPUBLICAN
COUKT.-Modern economy is un expen
sive luxury. Just examine one speci?
men. Under Andrew Johnson there was
a very clever official, named Cushaw,
who acted ns grund usher to the Presi?
dent. For Si,OOO a year ho consented
to take tho whole White Hou.so on his
shoulders. For that modest sum be was
content to bear tho abuso of countless
vis tors and to repay all with uniform
politeness aud courtesy. How is it
under President Grant? There is Dent,
full Brigadier, with a salary of $5,000
per annum; Crook receiving Si,GOO;
Price, likewise, $1,0 )0; young Douglass
$2,500; Adams (not George NV., but un
Other man.) $1,G00; and Sitnmuods, a
gentleman of color, $00 per month for
simply bearing eards of visitors from thc
eminently polite Dent to the President's
private office. All theso officials com?
bined discharge tho duty which Cushaw
monopolized under President Johnson.
In other words, it now requires
$13,380 to accomplish the laborous busi?
ness of attending tho White Houso visit?
ors, while it only cost $1,000 under
Johnson. There is nothing like econo?
Not long ngo, in ono of our New Eng?

Mn. EDITOR: On tho 4th of Juno, tho
anticipation of Governor Scott's visit to
Greenville, for the purpose of inaugurat?
ing tho recently erected college, gave rise
among the colored sex to the expectation
of ono of the grandest and sublimest
jubilees and feasts of the present day.
Even as far as fifty miles around the
whole raco was over-joyed at tho idea of
such a treat. However, on tho appoint?
ed evening, tho colored bund, followed
by numberless crowds, approached tho
depot, arrayed in nil tho grandeur of a
kiug. After impatiently wuiting for
some moments, the train arrived-un?
fortunately, not baviug had tho honor of
bearing the Governor's person. At this
news, the whole crowd was struck
speechless with disappointment. lu a
few moments, as tho crowd dispersed,
among the rnuny ngouiziug cries of the
multitude, was heard tho oath and
damns of an aged uucle, who was shout?
ing aloud his much lamented loss, de?
claring that ho was a poor, hard-working
negro, and that he had but one turkey in
tho whole world, and to think that he
had plucked her from thc nest of four?
teen eggs, ou which she had so faithfully
sat for three long weeks, and prepared
her for the sole purpose of tho Governor
himself; and he had so sorely disap?
pointed him. In this death-like horror,
he could only be calmed by the soothing
voice of his dear wife, who, amid these
shouts, had chanced to fall in his arms,
telling him that, as Sunday was only one
day off, they would invito their good old
pustor, and partake of the feast which
the Governor himself might havo so
easily enjoyed. S.

In the case of James Weaver, a citizen
of Texas, tried for murder, convicted
and sentenced to bo hung, by a military
commission, Attorney-General Hour
IIUH given au opinion, in which he re?
views tho reconstruction laws and the
duties of commanding officers, and says:
"As the State of Texas had not, in Sep?
tember, 1868, and hus not since, adopted
a constitution in conformity with the
provisions of tho Act of Congress, und
has not become entitled to representa?
tion in Congress, tho Act was operative
in Texas nt thc timo the military com?
mission was orgaui/.ed for the trial of
Weaver, and tho commanding general
exercised tho discretion entrusted to him
by tho third section, by deciding that it
wus necessary that a military commis?
sion should bo organized for the trial.
If, therefore, tho statute of March 2,
1867, is u constitutional and valid
stat nf o, it theu appears that the jurisdic?
tion of the said military commission was
complete, and that there is no legal ob?
stacle to the execution of the sentence."
The Attorney-General maintains that tho
right of war did not necessarily termi?
nate with tho cessation of activo and
actual hostilities, and not until the work
of restoring tho relations of peace shall
have been nccorapished, can it bc so con?
sidered. It is for Congress to determine
when the war has so for ended that the
work can be safely and successfully com?
pleted. Tho Attorney-General sees no
reason in law for withholding the Presi?
dent's approval of the findings. During
Iiis argument, tho Attorney-General
said: "Jt is obvious that Congress, nuder

Sewers of New York-Recovery of Vs?
la?bl<j Property-Horror? ander tb?
In ibe Nineteenth Ward, bordering on
the East River, cnn bo seen a very neat
little two-story frame bouse, covering
almost un entire square, surrounded by
a beautiful garden, tho occupant and
owner of which, though a German, ie
what we call one of tho self-made men
of Now York, and ranks among the
wealthiest. Though n man of little or I
no education, it would make one's blood
ran cold to listen to his daring exploits,
and the many adventures that ho hos
passed through under the streets of our
city. Some fifteen years ago, he landed
in this country, u perfect stranger, and
with but little money. This he had the
pleasing satisfaction, if such we may call
it, of being robbed of on his very first
night in the city, at a German boarding
house in Greenwich street. His vocation
at home was that of a night-scavenger,
and ho was not long in procuring a situ?
ation in the sumo business in this city.
For fivo years ho followed the same as au
employee, which enabled him to ?avo
considerable monoy. During tho time,
he had frequently found many valuables,
and so persistently wero applications
made to search for lost property, that ho
conceived tho idea of working the sew?
ers of our streets in its search. Ho had ;
also become quite accustomed to sowers,
as ho had frequently beeu compelled to
clean them out, and was as much ut
homo in these narrow and filthy passage?
ways as upon tho streets. The leading
contractors in the above business found
bim so valuable aud so daring au ex?
plorer that they wore continually calling
his services into requisition. There is
hardly a sewer ou tho island in which ho
has not been; and ho seemed to take a
great interest in watching the building
of new sewers and drains. He knows
their size, length, every turn and crook,
their inlets and outlets, and claims to
have many haunts below the ground,
where, by the force of water, vuluables
that aro lost arc sure to settle oro they
eau bo carried out into the river, lt will
bo remembered it was but a few weeks
ago that a man was arrested iu Hoboken
with quito a number of valuable articles
in a basket, and it was discovered that I
bc had got them out of the sowers of1
New York. Now, many presumed that
this was a new business, tho like never
having boen heard of before, yet this is
:iot so. There are quite a number,
mostly Germans, who follow this same
business; but they aro very careful not
to divulge thu same, as it is saul they are 1
making an independent fortune, lt is a
regularly established business in Frauce j
aud Germany, and in many places they j
pay so much for tho proceeds of the
sewers. It is said that there have been
those who have tried to accustom them?
selves to the business, but who were un
allie, in many instances, to endure thc j
unhealthy odor aud poisonous gases.
Tho first trip ever taken by our in?
former along the sowers of the city was
on Conrtlandt street, iu search of a
pocket-book that had been lost ia tho
sink of one of the prominent hotels on
that street, and which contained if 1,350
in money, and' drafts and notes to the
umouut of $23,000. Tho sink had beeu
searched, but all efforts to recover the
lost property wore fruitless; it was evi?
dent that it had been washed out into
tho main Bewer, and the owner offered
the whole amount of money iu cash,
?1,350, should it bo recovered. Her?
mann, for ns such he was known among
his associates, concluded to work the
street sewer that night and seo if it was
possiblo to find the same. That night,
accompanied by two others, ho equipped
himself in a full rubber suit, a revolver,
a hook, a dark lantern, nud a sieve'
shovel. Descending, at tho first opening, '
which was about a block below the hotel, i
ho set out on bis journey on his hands
und knees through the dismal passage
way. He had no sooner got well under I
way, the powerful light from the dark
lantern affording him plenty i f light,1
when he carno face to face with ono of'
tho largest dock rats that ho had ever
seen. Tho power of tho light seemed
to stagger the rat for a moment, when
Hermann drew his pistol aud shot him
dead. Ho then resumed operations, and
sifted after mud and filth as he went
along. Thc first thiug of note that he
found was tho body of a still-born, about
i three or four months old. On lifting it,
I it was so much decomposed that it fell
l apart, A little further, bo picked up a
silver watch, with a common cord tied '
to it, and it had evidently been some
limo in the sower. Keeping on, bo soon
picked up two silver table-spoou.s, one
bearing tho word "National," and evi?
dently belonging to tho hotel of tho
samo name, which is located on the
samo street; ho also picked up part of
i an old silver urn. As ho lifted tile piece
of tiru be felt something heavy against
it, which ho nt first imagined to bo a
pieco of board; but when taking it out,
lo and behold 1 it was the identical lost
pocket-book. All was found safa within;
but wet through and through. Being
unable to turn in tho sewer, ho was
forced to back out; and in n sliort time
be was at the opening, and in if few mo?
ments found himself safe on terrafirma.
Returning home, ho dried tho bills,
notes and pupers; and tho following
morning handed over tho bookand con
tents to their owner, who fairlj jumped
with joy at their recovery. M?ien told
how it had been recovered, ho could
hardly believe it. The $1,350was paid
over to Hermann, receiving, besides an
order for a new suit of clothed from the
proprietor of the hotel.
Th? most extended journey iver mads
by Hermann was through Viney street j
sewer to Broadway, thence td Barclay, j
und down Barclay to tho outlet at the j
i river. On Vesey strcot he picked up
' numerous spoons of every description, j
? especially in tho vicinity of tho Astor
House, and tho case of a gold watch, j
I Ho also found a broken bracelet, a dirk- ,
; knife, and a pair of gold spectacles. Oil i
j Broadway ho found a neat oVoss-branded .
' dirk, und on Barclay street picked up :
. V. : \
over forty dollars in money.* Some two
years after the aboVo journey, ho made
another tour over tho sarno route, and
found a lady's purse Wntaiuing $107 in
gold, also an old pocket-book, with
eighty-foir cents in it\
. ?n the spring of 1864, ho was cnlled
upc to recover a heavy gold wedding
ring, that had been dropped down a sink
by a Indy, and who seemed almost dis?
tracted over its loss. Money was no ob?
ject if the ring could bo recovered. Tho
sink was cleansed, but no ring could be
found. Tho sewer was accordingly
visited that night, and after a diligent
search of the passage-way leading from
tho dwelling to tho main sower tho ring
was found, after nearly two hours' hard
work. Ho was made a present of $200
for hil trouble, besides what was awarded
During the ten years that Hermann |
followed the above life, ho states that, nt
times, ho found over 300 still-born in?
fants in the various sewers of tho city.
As a general thing, ho would bring them

[JVCM? York Sunday Mercury.
X writes from Washington to tho Bal
tiioro Gazelle the following:
Tho onslaught of tho Third Auditor
i iou whilom Confederates, for old nc
( Mutabilities, threatens a singular de?
filement. Like tho appointment of
:ewart to the post, of Secretary of the
reasury, it is now seen that many up
j 3?ntments of our excellent Excellency
ave been made in tho very teeth of
ositive enactments. I consequently have
j> say that tho zealous nnd punctilious
iiireuu officer has been advised to be
nore particular hereafter, and seo that
ie treads on no radical corns. The case
>f Longstreet is in point: There is a di?
rect law of Congress (which I hopo no
me at this late date will dispute) that no
iefaulter of the Government shall be
eligible, while such, to uuy office what?
ever, civil or military, under tho General
Government. It is beyond question that
General Longstreet left the Government
service abruptly, and in its debt, ns
shown by tho books of tho accounting
officers. At tho time of bis late appoint?
ment, ho was, therefore, a defaulter. It
has been tho practice, heretofore, to ex?
amine such records before appointment.
Tho question now presented is whether,
under tho tenure-of-oilice Act, tho mis?
chief dono by tho Third Auditor can be
remedied, lt is admitted on all hands,
that tho appointment of the General as
Surveyor at thu port of New Orleans, is
void, under thfe circumstances. What
tho Attoruey-Giuerul will have to decide,
(ho will shortly dtuve his hands full,) is
whether the President has the power, j
under the Act referred to, to "suspend" 1
for a period, beef, but sufficiently long
to enable a mau to "pony up," and then
re-appoint the same person; and if so,
whether tho Confederate General must
not necessarily disgorge tho salary for
pay ho has alrealy received.

The cuso of the United States against

adversely to tho lluited States in a lower
