Tor ex iiinplc, tho 7uiiiiieof this morning sijs, 5n Its 'Washington correspondence. As to Mr. Nmlamw of Nevada, wlio is one of tho nctle spirits of tho"slIcr committee," which hns been engage 1 for many months In promoting sliver legisla tion in Congress, lio hns shown that n part of tho plan of tho aforesaid commit tee wns to work up "public sentiment," that Is, to manufacture and stimulate it through agents, whose expenses, etc, iTcro raid from a fund of ?10.000 to 1G,000, contributed mainly by owners of Mhc mines and silver bullion. While Jlr.Ntw lands cannot bo described as a communkntho witness, and while ho np rcnrnl to bo curiously ignorant of many iktnlls of tho business of "promoting sil ver legislation," his testimony wns by no means dcstltutn or" iilim ur interest, csjicclally In regard to tho matters nboo inintioned. Tho Xew York Timts also had some Miitlments from Washington of n like nature. Hut nothing lias betn do eloped in tlio way of genulno testimony as to tho nistenco of n "pool" or of any other cor rupt agency in connection with tho silver movement. Mr. Nlwlamh Is tho execu tive officer of a committee which has for its object tho dissemination of silver lit erature nnd tho conduct by legitimate Menus' of tho freo coinage propaganda These Kcntlcmcn hao a perfect right to do this. 'I hey stand in n much better light than the promoters of the shipping nubsldy measure, for they ask the Oo crnment only for tho right to convert tlielr product Into coin at the rate fixed by the (in eminent Itself. They do not apply for help to develop "an infant Industry," or for nlms In any t her form. Yet tho Eastern papers aro ijtilte ns ready to cast imputations against thunnsthcy wcro to wink at tho bold lobby work of the subsidy men. Hut Ur. Xewlamw and his friends have tho ratlsfaction of knowing that the people, or two-thirds of tho country nro with tlicm, nnd will rcjoleo with personal fcr or in their success. f-iATOit rnrcc -allied two recruits 3 (Mutiny, but has failed to plerco tho ranks of tho opposition. It ihtookoo:, tosny exnetly whntnmount of fraud hns been practised in this ncro tolonlzatlon scheme, but It is entirely within bounds to express sjmpathy for the unfortunate ktlms of tho swindle. "IVe obseno that many of those who hao inquired into thecao aro disposed to ro j;nrd eome of tho colored men concerned in It us honest nnd well meaning. That Is iry probably tho case. Thero nro doubtless hundreds of colored men hero In Washington who would cheerfully sxv hullo tho innocent rural ncro, but this plcco of rascality seems to hao beendo Nlscdby whltomcu, who made dupes of their colored coadjutors. All this, howccr, Is mere conjecture at jircint, Tho conspiracy will no doubt bo iimclled In duo time, and wo shall then learn tho whole truth. At this moment itq know little except that n lnrgu number of credulous nigroes luuobciu Induced to part with their hard earned money and to abandon bonus In which they wcro comfortable and prosperous.

'thero Is no muni of a negro's having hem allowed tottniveor to suffer for the necessities of Kfo In any Southern community, Xo Kouthirn planter's door was over closed ii on ft negro who needed bread or cover ing or care. Hut the fact remains that these hapless creatures hao been cruelly deluded nnd dispoilcd, nnd thero should bo soino way of detecting and punishing tho guilty parties. As tho case appenrs now, It Is about ns mean and Inhuman a conspiracy ns wo can recall In our experience. I'vcnts may prove it to have been n blunder committed In good faith, but present Indications do nit point that way nor do wo bcllovo that fliiy future deelopments will. Wo be lief o that somevvhero under this revolting mats of confusion and disaster tho real Ntithors of tho swindle aro Ijlng hidden mid that elTort and Investigation will ills' cover them. It is our ardent hope that this consummation tuny do rcnllrcd with the least possiblo delay and that tho nt most penalty permitted by tlio law will bo Indicted, Ills one thing for white nun to say that they will not penult ne groes to take prosesIon of Um eminent and rule over them, In snjlng tint they have our uniuallllcd sympathy. Hut tho while man who would deciio nnd betray and despoil the slmplo negro who trusted him Is n scoundrel for whom no punish mint Is too severe.

KoMroKTin runs to-day, among them tho JCow York llttahl, express the opinion that Secretary 1'itocmn has blundered In ordering General MiKmm to tho 1)1 IsIon of the .Missouri. In cw of tho re lations said to cxlt between General Mo Kn vi it nnd the commanding olllcer of Hie division, Uincrnl Mm, this may bo to tome extent true. It Is certainly un fortunate. Hut the Jfemltl Is nway out of Its reckoning when Itsajs: It Is nut nn iincnmmnu wnytopunlsli nn nlllier by sending him to a pist be neath his rank mid cnpneltv. The iiltlon Is no be ncnth General Mo Kiiwi.'h rank at all. On tho contrary, the l)h Mon of the Missouri Is tho most ixlinio nnd Important In tho whole military establishment of tho United Ftalcs, and calls for an olllcer of General MiKii.wi.'s rank exactly. After tho trnnsfir from thero to Washington of Ginirnl Wii 1 1 vmh It became lucessary to replace that olllcer w lib some one of equal milk, ns Colonel Coiuiiv although doubt less compitcnt In every other way, wns not considered as entitled to tho promo tion over tho bends of ollkcrs who ranked him In the corps. Thero Is no force, therefore, In tho ar fiiimint that General McKi i wit has been assigned ton position of Inferior and In adequate Importance. Tho fact Is Just otherwise. Ho hns been assigned to nn unpleasant duty, crhaps, though ho has not authorized any one to say so In his bihnlf; nnd certainly the, scores of friends he hns made In Washington will regret Ids departure most unfilgncdly.

Hut doubts as to his genuineness soon nreiso, and tho longer ho remained tho greater they became.
