Correspondence of the Cincinnati Qazotte.
Wasiiikgton, December 21. The Dar
ling Committee, which visited Jew lork
to investigate the frauds upon the revenue,
has returned. It is understood that the
frauds brought to light by only a partial
and superficial investigation, almostcxceed
belief, and the developements are startling
in their character. The single matter of
whisky frauds may thus be summed tip.
Whisky regularly branded, but which has
never paid a -cent of; tar, 4s regularly sold

$1 j(6 per gallon. Distilleries of small ca
pacity have have been Secretly started in
great numbers in all parts of the city, in
cellars and garrel, where from one to two
barrels a day are made. So great is Hhe
demand for these small stills that the cop.
peremiths are overrun with orders, and
some of them had from fifty to one hun
dred orders ahead.

perfect impunity, the inspectors of whisky

many of them have made lortnnes; in
the few months since their appointment
These men were all recently appointed
under tho auspices of the Johnson Club
here, and many of them seem to have
been selected with special reference to
raising funds for political purposes.
One man, who had the disposal of much
of the government patronage, made five
hundred thousand dollars in two months.
by dealing "In illicit whisky, llevenue
agents and collectors recently appointed
and. deeply implicated, had their places
bought for them by dealera in whisky of
the Johnson Club ; and speaking generally,
enormous sums have been paid on one hand
to secure the appointment of men who
would either participate directly or wink
at their frauds, and on the other to raise
money for these clnln. It is believed that
half the whisky in bond in JfewYorl' has
been entered by first securing perraisaion to
withllraw it for redistilling, and Ihen filling
the casks with water instead.
It is understood that the committee are,
satisfied that the present laws cannot be en
forced, and that they contemplate recom
mending a reduction of the tax to fifty cents
a gallon, or the imposition -of a license so
greatas to breakup all small establishments,
Tn the matter of tobacco, large frauds of
this kind were discovered. A man's stock
is seiiod for fake returns, lie is advised to
consult a certain attorney in the ring. The
attorney recommends a compromise and
tho parties divide results.
The romniittoo, in in vestixratinc tho frmula
in the customhouse in New York, .have
discovered still more glaring cases than
those given above, and many leading John
son men, and even the White-house-house
hold, are deeply implicated.
The whisky interest in New York and
throughout the country has been uflingevery
eitort to secure the removal of Commission
er Rollins, as he has constantly stood in
their way. A very large sum was raised to
bribe the committee, but the effect has only
been to increase its vigilance.
Heavy frauds upon the revenue have been
reported at Cincinnati. The committee
will probably visit that place some time
alter the holidays.
The New York Citizen is a little more
explicit about that game of faro in New
Yorklast week. It Bays: "Themost vigorous
