It- f s in ifv' tt,V l TOPICS OF THE DAY. Notable Charaetcra in tho Govern ment Hospital for the Insane, MR. MANNING'S HEALTH. Zlemlmsconces of n Famous Conffros BlonnI Reporter. Hiss Louise V. Hopkins, tho Wash ington correspondent of several West ern papers, lately pnld a visit to the Government Asylum for tho Insane and writes It up In a very agreeable, chatty stylo. Referring to soma of the moro notable Inmates of tho Institution she says: Ono of tho most Important personages, "falsely Imprisoned," of course, Is General Herman llucblcrs, who has been there over twenty years. Ho Is good looking, gentlemanly and very particular about his dress, and It Is not until bo begins to talk with you that you discover his "crankiness." no shook hands with mo, urged mo to bo seated, and then I had to listen to tho story of his grievances, and was Invited to read a poem of eighteen verses of his composition, cntltlod "Falsely Imprisoned," and was also commissioned with various messages to his friends outsldo, to como and tako him away. Of course, tkiy havo to bo humondln all their whims, but It Is hard to getaway fiom these Inveterate talkers. Ho wrote mo his full and elaborate address and tho following verse: "His llvcellcncy, Major General and Dr. Herman Iluchlers, Com. niandcr in Chief U. 8. Army and Nnvy, Commander of tho U. 8., Pro fessor of Dental Surgery, owner of tho 8t, r.llzabcth Hospital for tho Insane, etc., etc., etc., came In April 7, 1803." "Llfo Is short. Its days aro measured, Therefore lmvo Tour f arnlnas trca.urod; !Kl one tiny will call yon from here, V lien your botly Ias on tho blor. lien i our soul npixmrs bctore Iilm, Who knows your actions to a i!ul ' I hao messages, too, to deliver to tho Sneaker of tho House from Colonel 3Iorrls Plochovcr, whom wo fouud taking a "constitutional" about tho grounds. Ho Is quite a character, and mado himself notorious In town by his stories of tho vast amount of property he owned and his extensive claims of several millions of dollars upon tho Government. Ho was present at tho opening of Congress ono morning, and forced his way among tho members, boisterously demanding his rights. Hon. J. C. 8. Blackburn was tho only ono who could quiet him, and ho was soon after sent to tho asylum, whero he has remained for several years, and, judging by his present condition, will stay for some tlmo to come; but I gratl fled him with n promlso to sco Mr. Carlisle at onco and havo him re leased. Bays tho New York UiapJUc of Mon day: Justlco Horaco Gray of tho Su preme Court has just gone back to Washington arter n quiet week at tho Brunswick. Ho Is a great, strapping, broad-faced, bald headed man, without tho slightest evidence about him of tho Massachusetts Puritanism from which he sprang. Ho Is tho champion bon-vlvant of tho court and by long odds tho most companlonablo and genial man, not excepting Stanley Matthews, on tho Supremo Bench, llefore ho was appointed to his present place ho was in tho highest coutt of Massachusetts, and many u sudden shock ho used to glo gravo old Judgo Ames and tho now Secretary of War rndlcott, who were on the bench with him. He bad a. way of putting his judicial decisions that hardly com ported with tho views of the solcmn laccd old boys who wero his associates, and ho has brought the custom with him to tho Supremo Bench. Said a veteran of tho stenographic profession to n New York World re porter tho other day : Tho man who Is to-day beyond tho reach of the short hand men Is Congressman W. Iiourkc Cockran of this city, and I doubt if there is a stenographer who would havo tho hardihood to guarantee an ubsolutely accurato report of ono of his speeches. Ho Is deliberate enough at llrst, and tho man who Is green at taking him Is lulled Into tho belief that ho Is going to have a picnic, but when he spreads his wings and Is off on ono of his tilghts of eloquence, tho poor reporter who has attempted to follow him finds his pen brought to a stand still whllo ho looks Imploringly at tho orator, who is fast disappearing through tho clouds, out of tho reporter's sight and bearing. He is lost. Ho says lomcthlng about 'greased lightning,' and gius it up." A New Yorker informs me, says Mocforland of tho Philadelphia Ilccoid, that ex Secretary Daulcl Manning has never recovered and would nover recover from his stroko of paralysis. Ho is constantly under a physician's care. Tho latter will not let him walk for any considerable dlstanco or climb n single flight of stairs so Manning drives all over ton n, and has had an elevator put In tho residence ho has taken on lower Fifth avenue. Ho takes llfo very easily drives down to tho Western National Bank, of which ho Is president, and tho skillful ami energetic ex-Treasurer, Conrad N. Jordan, Is cashier and manager, stays awhile In tho president's room and drives homo, cats simply and sleeps a good deal. Ho Is practically n looker on la busy New York. V Sas a Washington correspondent of tho New York Tribune- Mr. McKlhono enjoyed the most friendly relations with Stephen A. Douglas and John C. Breckinridge, and was a favored friend of Daniel Webster. When John 0. Brccklnrldgo first camo to Washington as a Member of Congress ho brought a letter of introduction to Mr. Mctlhone, and when his son, 0 11, Brccklnrldgo, tauio'to tho last Congress as a Itopro scntntho from Arkansas ho also pre sented a letter of Introduction to tho olllclal reporter, who was holding tho same position os when tho new Con gressman's father first mado his ap. pcaranco In public life. Mr. McKl hono began his Congressional career In tho Senate, whero ho was employed to tako check notes of tho debates When Benton and Pooto had their llttlo un pleasantness on tho llnor of tho benatu, In tho courso of which l'oote drew his pistol, nn Investigation followed to discover who was to bo blamed You will And In tho report of tho committee- that Coloucl Bcntnn declared his belief In and ro Uanco upon tho accuracy of tho uotes of "Master McKlhono." Another friend of Mr. McBlhono'a was old General Simon Cameron. The two met with somo friends over n bottle of rhampagno once, shortly after General Cameron had become Secretary ot War, As ho was about to tako his lcno tho General turned to Mr, Mo Klhnno and said "You nra nn old High School boy of Philadelphia. Ynu havo alwnjs been my friend. What can I do for you ? I want tn servo ) ou. Mot Is the tlmo to speak." "I do not want anything for myself," Mr. SIcKUionc replied, "but my brother Jim would llko to do something for tho country, and I would bo glad to havu him appoloted a Lieutenant." "It shall bo done," said General Cameron. And It was ilono. Flro weeks lator "Jim" was dead from wounds ro eelved In battle. Washington, says a recent letter writer, has been tho newspaper train ing school for many of tho leading editors of the United States. A cor respondent hero has a position Bccond only to that of tho managing editor of a paper, and every year managing editors aro taken from hero and pro moted to the head of tho papers thoy represent. Joseph Pulitzer, editor ot tho New York World, was onco a Washington correspondent, and White law Held, tho editor of tho New York Tribune, represented tho Cincinnati Omctte hero for years. Ho wrolo let ters over tho signature of "Agate," and thcro Is now in tho Commercial Oatctle office an old desk at which ho use! to work. J. II. MeCullagb, editor or tho St. Louis Olole Ifamociat, was considered ono of tho brightest newspaper men at Washington durlug tho days of Andrew Johnson, an I James Omdon Bennett wrote letters from Washington before ho established tho Herald.

Important Letter Frnra the Commis sioner of tho General Land Office, THE QUESTIONS AT IS9UD Wherein tho DIlToronces Arose Ua tween Himsolf and Mr. Lamar. Commissioner Sparks yesterday sent Ills rt&.gnallou to tho President as fol lows: DcrillTMENT OF THE iNTFRIOIl, Unvniiii, Lani OrncG Washington,' Nor. 15, 137, To the VrttUUnf Tho Honorable Secretary ot tbo Interior ailvltes me by letter, ilited tbe 11th Instiot, lo cfTect tbat be ebould, ou tbatdite, pre itDlto you tho alternative ot Belictlug a ntw Eccretiry ot tbo Interior or a now Commie toner ot tbo General Lim Olllee, lnvlewot which I bare f tit call; J upon to atMreea you ibis letter. Under tbo authority vested In tho Com. mlt i loner by the laws and lu accordance with rcBulatloos and practice pursuant to law, by which action la II ret taken luthe General Land Ofllce In all matters relating to public lands, I bad previous to ticptim wcr, icoi, iubuc nujuoinitirnsoi certain rail road land grants, two of which, Known as wie wmaua cneefl, i nan ueec specially ill rtctcil by the Secretary to report. On Ouobcr 7, 17, Uo decisions of tbo Secretary wero rimlired lu tbo Omnbit csets, tion concurring In my adjustments and uerrullnjf the authority on wbkh thoy wcro Lilted. Ho dlrcdtd me at Ihu sumo time to cause tbe craots to be adjusted In conformity wlih anlj decisions. I now Inter from bis pull I (hud letter that theso de cldonowcro not approved by tbeoiIlcUl law adviser for tbo lupartment of tbe In tetlor. inn joists at lssin. Iho point at Isetio related to tbe claim of railroad companies to Indemnity for lauds that, under railroad granting bus, were re served from tbe operation of tboee acta by ciprees terms ot tbo statutes. lrtvious to lb75 lauds that bal been re served by tbe Govern men t for Indian and otber purpose!, and which were excluded from the grants and from tbe oporatlon of tbo granting acts, bad been patented or ctrtliled to tbe companies, both asgrantrJ lands aud as ludemnlty, promlu.uousty MlUi other lands. 'Iblsseims to have be eu done In purstuueo of a practice otglvlo? railroad companies whatever they askud for, apparently without much consideration of tbu restrictions and limitations of tbe grants. lu that year tbo title ton large quautity of cucb lauds In tbe (State of Kansas wblih bad been so erroneously conveyed to tho Leavenworth, Lawrence and Galveston ltatlroad Company was decreed Invalid by tha United btates Supremo Court. Since that date, or for tbe past twelve years, lands that were reserved at date of grant or at date of the definite location of the roads, as tbe case may be, have been regarded and treated In tbe decisions and practice ot this ofllco and Department as excludd not only from all the grants, but from tbo Indemnity bads under all grant wherein such re served lands are by the terms of tho law "excluded from tbe operation of tbe ucts." TUEOMAUi. CASES Tbe Secretary held In tbe Omaha cases that tbe company was entitled to Indemnity for such lands. Tbtsdcslslon, It ad hero J to, will bavo tbe effect to take from tbo people many million acres of land wltblo railroad Indemnity limits, which, by our advice and with your approval as expressed In tbe Guilford Miller case, have been pro claimed to tbe country as restored to tbe public domain Ibe question of tbe correctness of these decisions became, therefore, a matter of momentous concern. It tbey correctly de clared tbe law these lands belong to the railroad companies. If tbey did not cor rectly declare tbo law the lands belong to the people. The Omaha decisions purport to be founded up on the decision ot the Su preme Court In tbe case of tbe Winona and ct. I'tter Jtallroad Company vs. lUrney (113 U. S , t19), the assertion beinu; mado that the ' plain languaso" of the Court In that case teems to bo "conclusive of tho quittlons presented," and al-o upon a cer tain rule of statutory Inter rUatlon relied upon as being au axiom ot construction. Said decisions were further enforced by ref erence to an unreported d tele Ion of tbe United States Circuit Court for Wisconslo, which was said In tbe Omaha casts to baa judicial construction which seems to leivo "no further room for discussion. " unions or law. It appeared to mo that tbe dcchlon of the Suprtme Court In tbe Uaruey case waa abso lutely 6llcntupou tbe que&tlou decided lo the Omaha cases, aud that uot even tbe obiter of tbe court sustained these decisions. It also appeared to mo that the question at leiue was not In tbo case decided by tbe Cir cuit Court for WUconslu, and It seemed that tbo rulo of statutory interpretation adopted lu the Omaha cases was the oppo site of tbo rule of construction adopted by tbe courts and laid down by law writers. I was, therefore, profoundly convinced that tbe Secretary bad been committed to errors of law wblcb, If brought fully to bts per sonal attention, might be corrected. A HE EiAMINATION ASKED, It la the practice of tho Department to permit representatives of railroad com panies and other private Interests to apply lor reviews and reconsiderations ot de cisions wbeu questions are decided against such Interests I believed that, as tho offi cer of tbe Government having Immediate guardianship of tbe public lands, and Imme diate charge of the Issuance ot patents un der all grants of land by Congress, I bad at least equal right with representatives of rrU ate Interests to ask the Secretary of In terior to roexamlne a departmental de cision. And I believed It especially proper to express ray views to the Secretary In these cases becauso I bad not, but would bavo done so, In the original Inatauce, If I bad anticipated a change of ruling and dd clslon upon tho point In question. At car 1 tngly I waited upon tbe Secretary ar I per sonally expressed to him my desire to lute a review of tbe dtclslonsln these cases. He suggested tome to let the matter mt tor tbe present, In w blch suggestion I ot courso cheerfully acquiesced. Tbo formal application for review, couched In most respectful terms, was com pleted about October 20, but was not put upon tbe olllclal records and was not made public. On November 10 1 received a note from tbe Secretary desiring me to present to btm what I bad to say upon tbls subject. My letter was accordingly signed and de livered to LI in ou tho 11th lostaut, with nccesearj change of dato and other correc tions that bad been made. A copy of tbls letter Is herewith Inclosed tori our Inspec tion and for your judgment, both upon aub stance ot matter and upon oQlclal courtesy Of form and expression. Several Important questions wero dec! lo 1 la the Omaha cases other than tbo one re ferred to hereto, which justly call forcoc sldcratlon upon tho point of agreement with or contravention of decisions of tbo Supremo Court of the United (states, but I con lined my application for review to tbo question of "Indemnity for lands excluded from tbo operation of tbe granting acts," that being of ounhadow log Importance. In presenting this application I informed tbebecretary that It would not bo undo public, unlets by himself. Public attention LalDg now been called to the matter, I shall feel at liberty to furnish tbe press with a copy of tbls latter, after It baa been com municated to you, and a copy transmitted to blm, It Is but Just to say that tbe published communication, addressed to me and laid before you, la no answer to ruj letter ap pi) lng for review, 'ibe Issuo raised by ruo was strictly ono of law, Tbo presentation of tbo Issue was strictly lu tbo line of legal argument lu the letter addressed to mo that Issue Is not met, and the clTect has been to create tho erroneous Impn ttlou that tbetouowas one of authority alouo, uul that I had refuted to executo tho Sucre tur's olllclal orders, rilE ltCAL ISSL1S D EUTEU, This diversion of tho Issue from one of legal construction to ouo ot authority and Insubordination Is tbo substitution of force for argument a diversion of the nubile mind from tho merits of thocast,ainl,if nut relisted by mo In tbls presentation to you would bo the suppreislon by that power of a proper aud considerate effort ou my part, as the Commissioner of tbo General LiuJ Ofllce. tn ireuro lo the publle Interest an Injiiillal heating before the Secretary of tbf Irtetlor ou a purely legal question af ftrtlrg Ibe administration of tbu ofllco with which I am charged. 11 e rfllce of Couiuiiislonerof tho General lard Oniee has been one ot Inttnno labor, Imposli g a constant sense of high responsi bility. Ilsvlig sought It at jnur band, I bsVe continued to bold It only out of a senso of duty, with a view of ifTtatlng noma good to the public. I hae endeavored to dis charge rny full duty In It. In tho fjce of many discouragements and much calumny and abuse from tboao whose Interests were to defeat tbo policies pursued 1 bare be lieved my line of action to bo correct, and tbougbtl bad reason for the belief that It raft your approval. If these decisions foreshadow a chango tn official policy on this subject, knowing well what this will mean In practical application, I could not, of course, with my sense of duty, be tbe Instrument to effect tbo change TKRiiftn or nCIONATtOV. llavlrg ever, as now, regarded tbe com mission I hold from youat subject to your recall, and desiring to relievo yon of mi) possible embarrassment, I herewith ten ler jou my resignation of tbe often of Commis sioner of tbe Genersl Land Ofllce, and ask Its early acceptance. Anl In thus severing my connection with your administration 1 beg to assure you of my earnest wish that tbo same wisdom, firmness and Integrity which has thus far so eminently rnarkcl your administration may continue to en hance you In the estimation ot your coun try men. ory respectfully, M.
