The Alaska Purchase.
If the rumors which arc now circulat
ing iu Washington re true n lingo por
tion of the moticy voted by Congress In
July Inst for the purchase of Alnskn, lmv
found its wny into the pogkets of the
" lobbyists." The Treasury Department
records show, according to "Wnsliingto
corrcspondcnts,that the warrant of seven
million two hundred thousand was
drawn in favor of Baron Stoeckl, who
gave it to G. W. lllggs, the banker, ol
that city, Mr. Rlggs went to Secretary
'McCulloch with it, and had it made
payable in Washington. He then asked
for tno loan of $200,000 in legal tenders,
as he had somo payments to make out
of it at onco, and could not or did not
want to wait until ho could send the
gold to New York and sell it. Mr. Mc
Culloch at first refused to have anything
to do with such an arrangement; but as
Mr. Riggs was urccut, lie got Gen.
Spinner to consent, and the legal tenU
rs were loaned on the gold, and were
subsequently returned and the gold all
released. The first check given by the
Treasury was dated August 1, and was
inaJo payable to the order of G. W.
Jtlgga, for seven millions of dollars in
coin. It was endorsed by Mr. Ri'jgs tt
S. G. & G. C. War'i, of New York, and
by them endorsed and the money pain
to II. F. Vnllle, of the Bank of Com
merce of New York, by the Sub-Treasury,
on August 4, three days after il
"Was given. Upon August 1 the next
check was given for one hundred thou
sand dollars coin; and made payable to
Itiggs & Co., and was paid to W. L
Jenkins, in Now York, on August 4.
The next one was upon August 3, foi
twenty-five thousand dollars coin, and
Vaa paid from the same source. The
next one was given upon thesame date,
but late iu the afternoon, for $35,000 coin
and pas&cd to Van Dyck's Sub-Treasury
through the same channels as the two
previous onc3. No cail was then made
upon Gen. .Spinner lor any more until
Sept. 9, when a coin check for $20,000
was issued, and was endorsed to Rlggs &
Co., and receipted for by J. Panuctt;
and the last was lor the balance, $20,00-'
coin, upon Sept. 1J, and passed through
the same source as the previous one.
No one- connected with Congress or
with any of the newspapers who are al
leged to have received these checks cvci
endorsed them, and there is no possibil
ity of Mr. Spinner being in any way
cognizant of the use to which this mon
ey was applied. By many these rumors
are regarded as false and gotten up for a
eensation. But so much has been said
about him that tho House will be likely
to appoint a committee of investigation.
An investigation certainly can do no
harm and we hope it will be made.
Commissioner of Internal lievciue.
Mr. Rollins, who lias made up his
mind to quit the olllce of Commissioner
of Internal Revenue, is, we aic told, be
ing daily importuned by many of the
most prominent Republican Congress
men to withdraw his resignation, but
thus far their importunities have not
availed anything. Mr. Woodbridge, of
Vermont, has been mentioned as a pos
sible successor of Mr. Rollins, but we
fear he will havo to leave Washington
without tlis honor, as much as he may
desire It. Col. Cummiugs, collector ot
the IV District of Pennsylvania, it is
thought, will receive the nomination.
He was nominated for the place in July
last, and while the Senate was acting on
the nomination, the tine of the ad
journment arrived and no voto was tak
en. Th3 West, a correspondent of the
Tribune says, is making a strong cfibrt
to control tho appointment, and the
friends of the Hon. R. C. Parsons, Mar
shal of the Supremo Court, iV2 urging
him la allow his name tj be used. They
say that if Parsons will consent he cun
be appointed and confirmed.

The Lytic., iny of flu Evpress
A dispatch from Louisville gives the
fjllowing particulars of the hanging of
the Rono brothers and" Charles Ander
son the cxpro.-s robbers, in tho jail at
New Albany, Ind., en Saturday, by a.
party or men f.om Seymour :
"About three o'clock this morning
Luther Whitten, one of the outside
guards of the jail, was met at tho cii
rance by a party of men, who presented
pistols to him, demanding his silence or
death. Whitten shouted, however, but
was sjized, knocked down and informed
that if he shouted again he should die.
By this time the jail olllce was filled with
men searching lor tho J-eys. SlierilTFul
len'ovc, understanding the situation,
came down from his sleepingapartinent
and gained tho door leading to the
grouni son the westside of thejail. Here
he meta number of men aimed with pis
tols, which were directed at him. lie
exclaimed, 'Gentlemen, don't shoot me,
1 am tlie.SherinV But one of the band
tired a shot, which took cil'ect in the
Sheriff's riglit arm, inilieting a serious
and painful wound. The keys were de
mandctl, but lie positively refused tosur
render them. About a dozen cf the band
then ciiicred Fullcnlove's loom, where
His wife lay in bed, and demanded tho
jail keys of her, but she refused to sur
render them. They succeeded in find
ing them, however, concealed in a draw
er. Thomas Matthews, one of tho inside
guards, was then compelled to open the
cells of the men, whom the mob had de
termined to hang. Frank and William
RohD were the llrst victims. They were
dragged etit and hung alongside of each
other, on the eanie pillar. Simon Reno
was then brought out, but he fought the
mob with great desperation, knocking
one or two of them down before he was
overpowered, and left suspended between
the ceiling and the floor.
Charles Andouson, who was tho last
.victim, was 'heard to beg for -tho piivi
lego of.praying, but this request was re
fused and he was hung at the southwest
orncr of thejail.
After a further threat to k'll tho shoriir
the mob proceeded to the train, carrying
with them thejail keys. Armed men
stood guard to. prevent any alarm from
being given. At four o'clock the train,
with the entire party, consisting ot from
seventy-five to one hundre l men (started
off. They came well armed and equipped
for tho work. They intended to lmng a
man named Clark the murderer of Geo.
Till 3 but they concluded not t do so,
Tearing to remain any longer. Th j band
came from Seymour, Ind., in a ear by
themselves, which was attached to the

Important, to Railroad Travel
ers. The following "rules of the road"
are based upon' legal decisions :
Tho Courts have decided that appli
cants for tickets on railroad crs can bo
ejected if they do not ofljr tho exact
amount of their fare. Conductors are
not bound to make change. All railroad
tickets arc good until used, conditions
"good for this Jay o ily," or otherwise
limiting tlmo of genuineness are of no
account. Standing on the plntionn or
othcrwiso violating the rules of the com
pany renders a person liable to bo put
off the train. No one has a right to mo
nopolize more seat than ho pays lor ; any
nrt.clo left in a scat whllo tho owner is
temporarily absent outiths him to his
scat on ills return.

Death of Jcrrmlali French, Kit.
We announce with sorrow, the death
of our townsman, Jeremiah French,
Esq., which took place, from, consump
tion, tins morning, mv. l'ronen was
the fiflit of the late lion. W. H. French,
formerly for several years Judge of Pro
bate of this County. He wast born in
Williston In 1835, and was educatou at
the Academy in that place. Ho early
selected the law as his profession, and
studied first in t lie office of Underwood
& Hard in this city, and afterwards for
a few mouths, with Judire Wales, lie
Mien went, in 1854, to Cambridge Law
School, from which lie graduated in
July, 18T0, taking the second prize in
his class. Ho then returned home, was
admitted to the bar, opened an oflice in
Burlington, nn. commenced practice
alone, but soon after entered Into part
nciship, first with Hon. Levi Under
wood in 1S37, andsubse uicntly, for four
years fioin January, 1S58 with lion. E.
11. Hard, and afterwards lor a short time
with Henry Dana.
From Dec. 1800, to Dec. 1802, lie was
States Attorney for this County. Of
late years he has been in practice by
himself. In 1851), tie married a ne.co ol'
Hon. Josiah Tutllo of Essex. He leaves
no children His hcalt1' began to fail a
year or two since, and admonished by
tnc advances ot nm uiscate to snun lie
rigors of our Northern winters, he spent
the last winter in Florida. Ho re urnc.l
in tho spring, f-omewlial benefitted;
but it was 0011 evident to all who saw
him, that his days were numbered. lie
Continued to decline through the sum
mer, and for the past month has been
conllncd to his bed. Shortly after 8
o'clock this morninc, ho was seized
with sinking and distress for breath,
and. passed away at half past eight. .,
Mr. French was beyond doubt the
most talented of tho youngor members
of the Chittenden County Bar. He had
genius in his profession, seizing legal
points with remarkable c'ciirness and
force, and maintaining them with an
ability which always commanded the
respect of Courts and Juries, ai.d which'
generally secured the highest proof of
ability, in success in his cases. Ho was
genial and generous almost to a fault,
and all in all, had qualities of mind antT
heart, which witn application 'and con
tinued health, would beyond question
in time have won him rare and high
distinction. He had no personal qne
mics, and none will follow his mem ry
with aught but kind remembrances.and.
regrets at the untimely close of a career
which might havo been one of such use

New Orleans, Dec. 12.
An important mlsundcrstttndiug has
occurred between tho officers and crows
of tho ljeruvian llcot recently fitted out
in this city, to which Gen Rousseau,
commanding tho Department, paid Ii'b

the crew mutinied and refused to work
on the ground that they were no longer
under the protection of the Htnrs and

by main force to compel the crows to
work tin ve'sels to sea; the ere vs re-
liised, and all commit icalion with the i
shore at New Orleans was cut off. The
crew. then threatened that t'hould an
a'tempt bo made to force them to sen

This had the desired effect, and the
officers at once appealed (o the police
force of city for assistance. The police
olllcials declined to interfere on the
ground that they had no iurisdlctlon,

But as that failed to catch a beau,
I donned a M-fk and ' let him go."
This was deemed neither rude nor rough
In my day but "quite up to snuff."
Long years ago, one festal day,

But Mine is precious now to mo.
And doggerel not much prized by thee.
