Mention is first mado of tho connection
of 11 lady in French arms sales by a Mr.
Mackenzlo, who recollected that ho had
been induced through Schonck, n b.'okor,
and l'ock ndunlur in armr, to writo a let
ter to Mrs. Davis, promising to purchase
arms by tho hundred thousand if sho
could got thotn. Tho connection of n lady
with arms salcJ having thus been brought
upon tlio tapis by ono Now York witness,
auotlior proceeds to inform tho committco
that the Mrs. DuvIh In question was n
Mrs. Mnson of Washington. This ho
could do, a woman being in tho question,
and yet withhold tho namo of tho man
who hnd placed him in relations with hor.
Pock nnd Wiard tell how they woro be
guilod into tho belief thnt Mrs. Mnson
could uchlovo for them what othcrwlso
they had failed to clfect, and in this con
nection conveniently forgot to, mention
that thoy had Involved tho supposed all
potent iutlucnuo with tho government of
no less h porsonugo than tho American
minister to Kngluiid. That is to say that
thcro was two Schcncks employed In tills
affuir as well ns n lady ; n fuct apparently
not convenient for either Peck or AVIard
to recollect. Wo And, moroovor, that
theso witnesses forgot anothor important
matter in their rolatlons with tins lady,
whom thoy huvo brought Into such morti
fying publicity by revealing her namo as
connected witli their ell'orw to purchnso
arms without a cent of capital thoy for
got to toll thnt they failed to pay her ho
tel bill on that visit to tho Hoffman house,
or woro unnblo to do it, much less pav u
bonus of 25,000.
WHO IS MRS. MASON?
Hut, turning from Peck nnd Wiard to
the lady whose nmnu thoy huvo made so
public, it may now Interest tho general
reader to know thnt sho was born in Vir
ginia, somo thirty years ago, and grow to
womanhood thoro and in Baltimore, in
which last city she bocamo engaged to bo
married to a distinguished California,
who wounded Brodcrick in a due), and who,
dying bofore their marriage, loft her a
handsome incomo, of which sho was de
frauded. Her family having rcmovtM to
Washington, sho resided them for several
yoai'i before tho war. and until sho wn.
allowed upon a pass snoclallv crantcd bv
Gen. Scott, in tho full of 1801, to cross tho
"lines" into Virginia upon important
fumily affairs. Crossine tho Potomac in a
small, frail boat, linr Jnurnoy to Wuhmond
was full of hardships and romantic incl.
dents, for sho was suspected by tho rebel
authorities, who for some time regarded
her as a spy. Her atny in tho south was
snort, however, tor she was taken under n
" (lug of truce, " to Norfolk or Fortress
Monroe, and turned over, according to tho
newspapers of tho day, as an "alien
onemy" oxpofled from tho confederuoy.
It is ullegod, howovor. that this was n
moro cloak to conconl nn important mis
sion with which sho had been intrusted at
itichmond, and for which her peculiar
talents, studies, and inclination appeared
to fit her. Ono thing is certain nt least.
Sho did not onter Virginia on any other
errand than personal business.
itoturntng to Washington, sho resided
apparently at one of tho principal hotels,
attracting a good denl of nttcntion from
prominent military inon nnd politicians
until nniuiy arrosioa aim turown Into the
Old Unpttoi prison" upon tho charces of
being in direct communication with the
robel authorities and having beguiled
Information from n high staff officer.
Curiously enough, it is thoueht she owed
hor arrest to a rival emissary, tho famous
jirs. urconouirn. After sevoral months'
incarceration no proof having bcon found
against her, she was released, but required
to roturn to the south, prosontlng in tho

tho escort of an officor to tho confederate

As nn illustration of hor clovcrnoss. it is
told on good authority that, liavinc a

of my old frlonds ns may have heard tho
announcement you we.-o authorized to
mako, that I would not be u candldato bc
toro tho republican stnto convention for

ity to know tho reason for my conduct,
nnd 1 know of no medium so proper for
giving them tho Information as tho col
umns of tho newspaper established by us
In 1850, when tho republican strength in
Macoupin county amounted to eight hun
dred votes out of a voting population of
nearly four thousand.
The stulo convention, which tins been
called to meet ut Sprlnglleld on May 22d,
will bo controlled by men whoso leading
object will bo to iccuro tho renomlnntlou
and election of President Grant, nnd they
will muko nil tho nominations of statu of
ficers subordinate to that object, and will
huvo u right to expect that tho candidate
for governor thoy select will sympathize
ill thoir favorite object, andunderlukotho
canvass of tho stule topromolo Its success.
I do not bolievo President Grant should bo
renominated by tho republican party, und
will not suy so, nor will I consent to can
vass tno state to promote ms ro-clectlon.
unless tho candldato placed in tho field
ngainst him is moro objectionable. I
supported General ttrant in 1808 with
grout chcorfulness. Then the issues
which followed tho war wcro of trans-
cendaut importance. It was then no
cessary to provido complete guarantees
for tho liberty, equality and protection of
all. anu in coiuuaruon wun tne unrroct ac
complishment of those fundamental objects
of government measures of administrative
reform were of smalt fmportance, nnd in
fact, from tho state of the public mind, wcro
then impossible. Now tho most important
public questions aro such as relate to the
enforcement of tho laws, the administra
tion of public provision for tho care of the
liolploss clusscs, tho reduction of the bur
dens of taxation, the enforcement of official
honesty nnd responsibility, und tho prose
cution of tho liberties of the people
As nl) who aro fumilllar with my opin
ions know, I bolievo tbut ail reforms and
improvements in tho direction indicated
rau.t begin in tho sluto, and the first step
towards success must be to win back to tho
government of the states tho confidence
und nlfcction of tho people. No man need
oxpect reforms in the administration of
tho federal government until tho pooplo
assume tho government of tho stato and
enforce honesty and good government
thoro. Tho president und congress nro
too romote from tho neonla to nav nnv
great degreo of attention to their wishes.
Thoy must bo impressed by tho action
nnd example of tho states. Willi theso
views I cannot dofend or
justify tho opinion noted upon by
Ucn. Urar.t when ho ordered four compan
ies 01 iniuntry into tins state to act as
police, and thut dictated bis npprovul of
tho acUof Gon. Sheridan in raising troops
uy nis own autnoriiy in tins statu subject

fully killed. Theso lawless and and dan
gerous assumptions of authority cannot
lio defended or apologized for bv mo
wiiilo tho obligations oi an oath to sup
port tho constitution and enforce the laws
of this stato rest upon mo. If tho

tho president in theso instances
oxlst in him, tho stato of Illinois
is hut a dopendoncy of tho govornmont
at Washington, nnd tho lives nnd liber
ties of tho people uro subject to tho will of
tho president. To defend theso acts of th
president, Is to concede thut tho powor tho
claimed exists. Such u concession by tho
governor would bo u crimo against tho
peoplo of tho statu. Nor could I, if 11

that President Grunt has tho inclination
