'Globe' of Sunday from Springfield, say
of the late Harpor defalcation
Later developments in tho Harper de
falcation case are far from being satisfacto
ry to anybody. It crowa worse as facts
are arrived at. Whllo the apparent do
floit wai only during the month of August,
It is asserted that the real default dmei
month further back, and that it had been
ceverod and the liabilities of tho collector
to lb government made good by borrowed
money, and tho tlmn came whan thoso
loans had to be met. Disgrace and ruin
stared him in thn face, and government
money was used to make tho payments.
It is thought that a thorough and com
plete examination of tho matter will in
volve several other parties who are as yot
entirely unsuspected, and if tho surmise
ara correct the smual will be only moro
astounding than the first report. A noth
ing haa been done in the investigation, it
would ba improper to mention fully tho
iuspicioni, but the public may inpr-.rtid
ror revelations or aaiariung nature, lion.

FILLET'S FIVE PEK CENTS.
Ohauncy M. Filley, postmaster of
St. Louis, appointed by Grant
and a peculiar favorito of tho
administration and the party, has
been detected in a achemo lo draw "buck
pay," "forward" pay and extra pay for
party and "other" purposes in a manner
which hat drawn upon his devoted hoad
tha flares anger of his fellow Republicans,
and subjected him to tho maledictions of
St. Louisans generally, irrespective of
party. Mi.PlHtj V ,-,iv & mod L
master: according - ji.r-w . r-r
of St. Louis, " he brought new lifo into
' the post office ; he increased tho numbor
of carriers; he made some excellent
1 change in Ibo corps ; ho reviiod tho
'pott routes; be accelerated the transmis
sion of malls; and thus undoubtedly ron
'dared great services to tho commerce of
'St. Louis and the West generally." .Mr.
Filley hu spoiled this good record by ono
unfortunate step. This stop, not a very
recant one, though recently discovered,
was ona to make up funds for party and
"other" purpoaoa, these being, as is all but
proven by circumstancial evidence, tho
expenses of a trip to Washington, Long
Branch, and othor watering places, by as
sawing the employes of his dopartmont
Ave per cent, of their salaries, tho amount
to be deducted and retained by himiolf.
Not to have the transaction made public,
he compelled each employe to sign a
blank resignation the dato of which could
bt filled at any time, which ho held as a
word over their heads, and which had
tha intended effect until one of tho clerks,
whose indignation at the assessment could
not be repressed, made tho matter public.
Tha Republicans of St. Louis claim to
ba outraged by this trick of
their postmaster at a time ubon tbore is
no party excitement and no possiblo po
litical use to which money raised In that
way could be put, and declaro that it is
the duty of Grant to remove him at onco.
As he it an ardent aupportor of the ad
ministration and supposed to bo In favor
of Grant for the third term, it is a doubt
ful matter, as yet, how his case will be
looted upon by the authorities nt Wash
