"FfTciaI JOURN AL OF THE U NITED STATES OFFICIAL JOURNAL OF NEW ORLEANS Tlic Time!< nnd the Tuiiminuy Kisg. [From the Chicago Trihuue.l New York. July 24.—The exposnre of tLe outrageous* and unlslusbing Tammany frauds by the Times causes much excite ment here, and is opening the eyes of even purblind people to the extent ol swindles by the ring. To day it lias another revela tion of plastering and repairs claiming to have been done to the new courthouse by Andrew Garvey, a notorious member of the Tammany ring. The Times says Hall and Connolly had no hesitation in signing the warrants for the work supposed to be done by Garvey. The same carelessness with reward to dates shown in these accounts extends even to the persons in whose names the cheeks were supposed to be made out Thus, on December 28, 18t>0, a check was drawn for 833,283 in favor of one Philip Donarnmma. This was indorsed by Philip F. Duumay, probably a name which wras much more appropriate to the transaction than that of Douarumma. Three days af terward another check for £33,129 8.> was made out for Donarumma, and this time it was indorsed Fillip Duminin. The eonl'usiou in the minds of Connolly and Hall with regard to Donarumma or Rumrney, or Dunimiu, was of little conse quence, seeing tae checks were indorsed by Garvey, s:> that one may conclude the money found its way into the bands for which it was intended. On one day, July 21. 18(0, Garvey received for plastering ami repairs no less than £45,986 89—that is to say, warrants were made out in his name for that amount. His total receipts, that same month, from Connolly and Hall were £i53.75o 14, not a had month's return for a plasterer. Ho beat that, however, in May, 1870, when he was lucky enough to receive £394,614 50, all for work done on the new court house. He beat that again in the following June, when his work tor a part of two months ap pears to ha ve been worth £945,715 11. June being thus pretty well played out, the signers of the warrants deemed it best to jump back to April, a month which they ap pear to have thought that they had neg lected. They began by paying Garvey for two days' repairs thus: April 9, repairs ou coun ty buildings. December 20, 1869, £66,118 31; April 12, repairs on county buildings, De cember 21,1869, £67,068 89; total ,"£133,187 20. A plasterer who can earn £133,187 in two days, and that in the depth of winter, need never he poor. Altogether he received in two years, or some one received in his name, the sum of £2,870,464 06. In answer to the Mayor's statement, the Times declares it is no paid of the business of a newspaper to prosecute public otiieers; that it is the duty of the community which is defrauded. It adds that it does not believe the Board ©1 Supervisors, behind which Mayor Hall attempts to shelter himself, ever saw the accounts, and if it did, the Mayor and Con troller are not bound to pay any accounts passed by the Supervisors. The effort of the Mayor to relieve himself and his asso ciates from the position in which the Times lias placed them, is a melancholy failure, and is so acknowledged to be by everybody not partisan in feeling. The Business of Beer Brewing;. The report of Mr. Louis Schade, of Wash ington, who was appointed bv Commis sioner Pleasouton to make an otiieial report of the Beer Brewers' Convention held in Pittsburg last month, has been tiled in the Internal Revenue Bureau. It touches upon every subject concerning the interests of lu-ewers. and gives some interesting statis tics relative to the amount of business car ried ou in that branch of trade. He states that the Beer Brewers' Associ ations extend over every State in the Union and that they receive support from their friends in all sections of the country. The Beer Brewers' Congress, which is to be held in Dresden on the twenty-seventh of this month, is expected to be largely repre sented from America, and as the congress that was to come off last year was post jioned on account of the war. business of great imjiortance to brewers is expected to be transacted. The brewers announce their intention of renewing their efforts to de crease the tax on fermented liquors. They hold that the interests of the country require that the taxing of malt liquors should entirely cease. They claim the exemption on the ground that malt liouors are known as temperance bever ages. nourishing and healthy, and that, by abolishing the tax thereon, the govern ment would beueiit the people and assist the cause of temperance. They regret that the United States has paid so little atten tion to the collection of correct and relia ble statistics relative to their trade, and claim that the want of such information in the halls of Congress, and of the apprecia tion of the necessity of the same, is the principal cause of the present unequal and, consequently, unjust taxation. They assert that they are the heaviest taxpayers in the country, and there was, for the previous year, taxiug the whole population, one brewery for every 13,467 persons, or 2862 breweries in the United States. Florida was the only State without a brewery, but there having been one estab lished during the present year, it extends the realm of King Gambrinus over every State and Territory in the United States. The report states that the tax paid bv orew ers for the fiscal year ending June 30, 1871, amounted to over $7,300,090, or about twenty per cent more than last year. The Jeff Davis Scandal. The Louisville Commercial of Monday, which originally published the scandalous story about Jeff' Davis, publishes the fol lowing ou his denial: As Mr. Davis passed through Knoxville ou the tenth instant, on his way to Memphis, he has taken the earliest opportunity to make the denial which he found upon his arrival there was "deemed necessary.'' As he has met the question like the "gallant gentleman which we have never doubted him to be, and has given the story as promptly as he could a denial in the most em phatic and judicious language, we hope the scandal will be consigned henceforth to the limbo reserved for such stories upon men who are called ou to bear the burden of unenviable conspieuity. No feeling which wo have toward Mr. Jefferson Davis, is tinged with any shade of malice, and it was no disposition to do him injustice which led us to publish an item of unpleasant news about him, which to us was apprentlv well authenticated. If the story is founded on malice, as he asserts, we take no part in the iabrication or the spirit which prompted it. Shirking Duty. We copy this from the Houston Times: Our friend W. B. Sbattuc, Esq., general agent of the Erie and Atlantic and Great Western railroad, iu Cincinnati, is an honorary member of the Ninth regiment, of which Colonel Jim Fisk, Jr., is commander. When the regiment was ordered out on the thirteenth instant, to aid iu suppressing the riots in Nev York, Sbattuc received a dis patch from Fisk ordering him to turn out for duty immediately. He was iu a quan dary. Over'S thousand miles from the scene of the bloody strife, and no way to get there in time. Besides, he really didn t want to go, he being a peace man. and op posed to all warfare. After thinking the matter over, he sent the following reply: Cincinnati, July 12. Colonel James Fisk, Jr.: Would rather lose a half day. W. B. SHATTUC. We presume our friend will be lined for non-performance of duty. This is Washington gossip, dished up by the special of the Louisville Courier-Journal: Washington, July 24.—Advices received here to-day mention a serious disaffection iu the Republican party in Louisiana, aris ing out of an attempt to use the money and patronage of the government in the Cus tomhouse and Postofliee at New Orleans in the interest, it is intimated, of the Presi dential succession. The Collector (who is a brother-in-law of the President ), the Marshal and Postinaster are said to be engaged in a movement in opposition to the State Repub lican authorities, and are making numerous fU'Pbiuiuwuis uu<4 vrs^aiiii's duks tv GVtda control of the State government next year. Complaint is about to be made to the Secre tary of the Treasury of the excess of ap pointments which are being made in the S'ew Orleans Customhouse under this new political movement. The Collector is at present at Long Branch with the President. We copy the following from the More house Conservative : (>n Sundav night last we had another successful jail delivery. The parish is doing as well as could !.e expected under the cir cumstances. The parties escaping were two of sundry and divers Rileys, convicted be fore Judge Bussev of hog stealing, and sentenced to the Penitentiary. But strong in the persuasion of their guiltlessness, they appealed, carrying their cause before a higher and less prejudiced tribunal. Iu the meantime, [lending the full assertion of their innocence, they pined for liberty—for a more active life. And though securely locked up in strong iron cages, in the centi of the ground floor, by some hocus poem unlocked .the doors, pned out the iron bars and made good their escape. One of the trio was left to pine in loneliness the flight of his companions—their combined skill failing to open his cell door. In all seriousness, Morehouse had just as well have no jail at all. Prisoners make their escape almost at will. The parish is put to a heavy expense in trying precious thieves and rascals. They are justly con demned, put in jail, fed and fattened at the public expense lor weeks—and then get out at their own option. Is there no remedy ? A committee appointed by the Governor of Georgia to attend the examination in At lanta University, admit the fallacy of the idea that the African race are not capable of high culture: "The rigid tests to which the classes in algebra and geometry, and in Latin and Greek, were subjected, unequivo cally demonstrated that under judicious training, and with persevering study, there are many members of the African race who can attain a high grade of intellectual cul ture. They proved that they can master intricate problems in mathematics, and fully comprehend the construction of difficult passages in the classics." A lady calling herself Mrs. Hortense Wat son. alleged to be the wile of Judge Watsor of California, was prosecuted in New York by Coleman Macy. the proprietor of the Coleman House, for a hotel bill. Her eouuj sel produced letters to prove that she was the wife of Judge Watson, and said that she did not intend to defraud the hotel peo ple. but that she was disappointed in a re mittanee from California. Justice Shand ley sent her to the penitentiary for two months. She swooned away when removed to prison. THE NEW ORLEANS REPUBLICAN Has the largest circulation of any Re publican paper in the South. It is de voted to News, Literature Commerce, Ag riculture, the Mechanic Arts, and the Dis semination of Republican principles, and gives particular attention to all matters affecting the interests of the South and Southwest. It is the earnest advocate of the poor man's rights, as well as a guide to the young politician. Its character as an earnest Republican Journal, should commend it to the support of every Union man and industrious citizen in the coun try; and not only should they subscribe for it themselves, but urge others to do so, thereby assisting us in its circulation, and thus contribute to secure the proper re sults of governmental and material recon struction. It is the medium by which the State and National Governments make known their laws to the people of Louisiana.
