TOM ANDIIRM4ON'W I TOWN, AND HOI.i. A COUNCIL WITH WRLI,. But It will Avall Nothingr, al tihe 'ollector i IBacked bi HayeLs anId ahermean. Tomanderson'd here, sure enough, now, having put in an appearance on Tuesday morning with Mr. Oantt, of St. Landry, and went immediately to a private house, from where they afterwards vislted J. Madison Wells, not at his office in the Ouutom-House, but AT Ills PRI\IATIF 'ROO on Oustombouse street. This was thought perhaps to be the best plan to secure an undisturbed tr -ft..·r, the Oustom. House being rather too public. They were in coneultation early in the morning, and by the time the "oiBoe houre" began at the Granite Building the prominent arrivals, with the hote above stated, were talked of, and later in the morning THE "OUTS" Wlal IN OOUnOU, In groups of from four to ia baker's dozen, won dering if the atack on the Odlleotor was to be reopened, or whether the trip to the Iigolets, (?) made by Wells, had resulted in a general com promise and the formation of a new mutual ad miration society by the es-Returning Board ohlefs and the Collector. Some thought that the "cruel war was over" while others considered it certain that Tomso dereon's thirst for Custom-Honse scalps had not ceased in the least. The same parties had it too that he was to leave for the North on Wednes day. A.rIng the mreing Tomanderson, unecoom pO ed by his fried Gantt, paid a friendly visit ,a.a Collector AT HIN HOTEL, 1td had quite a lengthy chat, taking in various questlons, including patronage, but he did not make any demands. Nor is it likely that he will, as he, with others, has ascettained that the Col lector is supported in the most substantial man ner by both the Seoretary of the Treasury and the President. The "outb" might as well glee up the fight now and seek some legitimate employment, as their chiefs have lost the battle, and neither Tomanderson, Gantt, Wells, Kellogg, Morey or any of the rest can REMOVE THE COl.LICTOR'S SCALP Sa affect his status with the National Administra. Wton, no matter how many letters are written to Washington with complaints; nor will he be affsoted by personal visits to the Capital by those representing the Liberal-Oonervative press, who seek influence and, rumor has it, position. The visit referred to was, so CaOtom-House rumor says, made in the personal interest of the LIberal-Conservative press of this city, and before the gentleman had hardly time to get settled .down Barr, the agent of the New York Asso dlated Press, had him LUNOtPIROG WITH THE PRESIDENT, Ibtowing that came some wild prlognostia the BSureme Bench vacancy, the not being sent to the Senate by Iht' the civil service reform rules would be applied if the Ooileetor was not con Armed, ete., and how Deputy Ohamplin would ameseed the Collector, and all thaete rt ofstuff, all of which at the time was quoted by the DmeroATr as emtrmelmy wild, and sure enough it has now urasplred that the "prognostlestlons" were more thata wild, and the Returning Board raid with the prognostioationo HAVE COME TO tiRIEF, as rerstary Sherman and President HItye have made up their minds to u.stais Collector King against any and all combinations, cliques and Mr. They are satisfied, as was stated in yes 's DEotenrAT, with the course pursued by the rector, and will support him. That being a rather broad assertion, it is only aeessary to add that the writer has meen a letter of recent date, from Hoeretary Sherman to a gen tleman in this city, announcing the determination named in words too explioit to be misunderstood, and commending the uolloetor's course In the bIhest and most flattering terms, both for him and the President, and informing the Collec tor that he need have no fears as to his appoint amtat, as they had been carefully scrutinized, WERE EMINENTLY VATI.FACTORT to the President as well as the Seoretary. From other sources it is learned that, in some mysterious way the Preeld'ent and lSeoretary Sherman have been fully advised from day to day of the progress of the raid, and by different parties; and these reports coorrouora tug letters written by the Collector himself, it was perfectly clear to the Administration that the raid and the row kicked up was for the purpose of monopollaz ing CuOnstom-House patronage without benefting the service or the g ,vetrnmunt, and for that rea son perhaps the Administration put ITS NUMBER FICTILN IiROOAN on the raid and the raiders, and quietly squelched both at the same time. Winformation from Washington, by the grapt vine, is to the effect that alter Mr. Gantt threat ened some time ago to withdraw from thu, eol lector's bond, that ollicid addressed the depeot ment a letter r, 1it tillig that he might be p -r mitted to s:r.tgtnon his bond, or give a now one altogether, but Lic tiocretary of the lreasury did not see any n ccaeity for such a Course, and ae ootdingly inftutted a genthman that the Col lector's twnmd "was good enough as it was." All this will be sad news to Kellogg's list of twenty-nine, and Kallogg himself may be now FXPCCTED TO FLOP at any moment and declare that he was "always your friend, you know," and to assert, too, that he taa never attempted to bullyrag the Collector or thump his clenched fslat down upon the doek of the -pecial Deputy, and swear that he would have hi, men in positions. He cannot let himself down very gracefully, however, and to recede from his former p sition, he will receive as his reward of merit the curses of those whom he promieednustom-House positions for their votes, and those of their friends who tried to make him the long term United States Benator, and It is a question of doubt whether be does not get the ersee anyhow, as it is clearly showt? now that he CANNOT KEEP HIS PROMIszs wven if be would, and if the truth were known it Is possible that Kdllogg did not think of his pledges or promises after he had shaken Louis. tana'a dust from his slippers. Last evening Collector King received the fol lowing letter from fpecial Agent Barney re lative to the Bradley charges, from which it wtil be seen, as was anticipated by the DEMooRAT, that .the charges have not been proven nor sustained. OFFIce OF THE SPECIAL AGENT, United States treasury Deprtment, New Orleans, Aug. 14, 1877. Sir.-Referring to your letter of the Bth inst. direciung my attention to the publication in the k)aily City Iteat of the 7th inst. of two letters over the etauature of Peter Bradley, wherein he I absrge oertain -ndivi unls, now or recently con nected with tre cuntom service at this port, with having perpetrated frauds upon the revenue, and requesting an unvestigation to the end that the lcers be exonerated or disecharged, I have to elate that a thorough exauunation of all persons named by him as being in possession of knowl edge or ev deuce of such frauds has failed to I elicit any information tending toorimiuate in the t least aty of the mdividuals or officers as charged.

Boylau, the Chief of Police, has sent a communication to the Mayor, informing him of the appearance in this city of a paper styled the ltlldmzer, which he says is libelous and obscene, and asking his honor as to the advisability of suppressing it. Mr. W. A. Freret. the architect to whom the matter of repairing the McDoncgh school houses was referred, having completed his exam ination of the schools, has r, p'r ed to the Mayor, with accompanying specifications, that THE OILLOWINO SUMR will have to be expended on the MoDonogh soliols, viz: McDonogh School No. 1, $1000; Mc Donngh School No 2. $225: McDonogh School No. 3. $100; Mcl)D.ogh School No. 4, $ 9!: M' Donogh Bobool No. 5, $250; Madison School, $2100; Mcl)onogh School No. 6, $55. There are two other of these Meloonogh schools to be ex. amined. The total amount caid to be required to put all the schools in repair .s $82,405. The McDonogh schools alone, however, can be at tended to for the present at least. THE RTnEET CARS. Admlnistratr Oavrnae is preparing a com runication to be addressed to the New Orleans City Rdilroad Company, requiring that the Canal street trains shall stop at such points along their line mentioned in the placards posted in the carn, without the necessity of being hailed or the conductor being informed by passengers to do so. It seems that the Administrator himself had been inoon venienoed on several ocoasions by the direlictions of the company in complying wi b the rules they have established themselves. When President Win z has been appliedto for a remedy he has LAID TlE BLAME on the conductors, who, he says, ate instructed to stop at the intersection of Canal street with Bampart, Claiborne, Galvez and other streets. The conductors, on the other hand, tell a differ. ent story, and it is with a view of settling the question definitely that the communlc.ition of Mr. Oavanao will be addressed to President Wintz. This matter has suggested to the same Ad ministrator the propriety of inquiring into the charters and contracts or all the street railroad oompanies, with a view to seeing that they are run in the interests of the people, and not en. tirely for the benefit of the corporations owning them. TO POUND DRIVERS. Administrator Diamond publishes a notice in this morning's DEIMOCRAT addressed to the cow catchers, instructing them that they must not drive animals to the pound which gras on the greens in the suburbs, but only such as roam at large op the thoroughfares. This order is in ac cordan6e with the views of a majority, at least, of the members of the Council who appreciate the usefulness and necessity of cows in all communt ties. AT THE COUNCIL, MEETINO( yesterday very little outside of routine business was done. The report of the committee ap. pointed to inquire into the accounts of Mr. Piper, collector during Mr. Cavansc's administration of tite wharves and landings, male a report entirely favorable to Mr. 'Piper, which was adopted by the Council. Whereupon Mr. Cavanac offered a resolution authorizing the oomrmittee to fnrther investigatethe charges o.ntained :n the "Sweeney card" by inquiring into the manuer in which THE LANDINGi DUES were collected during the preceding administra tion. When the question came up of the encroach. ments of the Pnoochartrain Railway on ENysian Fie de street, Mayor Pilebury stated to the Coun cil that IT WAS SHAMEFUL how the company had treated the street. He had investigated the matter himself, and thought all the Council had to do was to instruct the proper authority to notify the railroad company that they must putt ho street in a condition to meet the convenience of the pub ic and remove all ob structions which they had put or contemplaterd to pult upon it, other .ist the City Attorney should proceed legally against th, company. T'le pr,,positiou of Mr. I ,boer C. Wood toerect a market at the intersection of Napoleon Avenue and St. Charles Avenue cinme up and w.i refer red.

Yesterday altern on, shortly before 2 o'clock, DRputy Marshals Steele and 'Michel arrested Lewis Davis, aged about forty tears. The charge was selling and disposing of about 2000 canceled United States Internal Revenue Stamps of two cents' denomination. The prisoner stated that;f it was any Offense he was guilty, but he was informed by Special Agent D. Hutchinson that it was not a crime. When cautioned by the Commissioner that he need not criminate himself, he said then that he was not gumilty. Special Ilternal Revenue Agent Tompkins was called to the stand. He testified that the prisoner had sold him the stamps now in court. Davis is a waste paper dealer, an I these stamps were taken off old b:oke and papers. The stamps show that they were washed off. Saw Davis yes terday and I paid $15 50 for the stamps, and if they were genuine the 2000 are worth two cents each here. The reason he worked up this case wae this: We received letters from the depart ment that this thing was going on here, and that stamps used had been disposed of, and I came down to ferret it out. C. C. Tracey, cashier of the Internal Revenue, was next sworn, who said he c uld not swear all the s'amps were not legal; some had certainly been canceled. Daniel Hutchinson, next sworn, said that Davis came to him cue d ,y and witness told him all stamps never used could be redeemed, but never said illegal stamps could be used. Davis gave witness uncanceled stamps but no canceled ones. Commissioner Southworth said the testimony was very damaging. The see ion 3429 of the Revised Statutts provides that if any person sh ll have in his possesein wabhed stamps, such person shall be fined $1000, or be sentenced to five years' imprisonment, or both, and the burden of proof is on the person to account for the pres ence of the stamps. Tt e bond was fixed at $20.000, and the prisoner remanded to toe Parish Prison, failing to find a surety. Davis is a waste'paper dealer on Peters street, and it is alleged he has f r come time past been in the habit of buying no old receipt books and eauci led checks, and washing tnererrm the can e, led stamps and then renrovine the iuk marks. Those I ffered in evideuce were tied up in little ,quare bundles of 100. ant it w's with the utmost dificulty that it could be de'ected they had ever been need were it not for tLe absence of the mu ci.age on the back.

Opening of Dr. de Zayaa' Establlishsnent on Careondelet treet. For some time past-since the reorganization of our State government-Dr. de Zayse, a dis. tinguished Cnban physician who has resided in this city for several years, has been endeavoring to Introduce among ut vaooination DIRECT FROM THR COW. To that effect Dr. de Zsyas addressed a lengthy communication to the Board of Health, setting forth the necessity of such an institution here, and laying before that body a plan to carry out his proposition. The plan, involving an outlay of six thousand dollars per annum, although it met with the favorable c nsideration of the board, could not be adopted on account of the expense. Undaunted, Dr. de Zayas, who is a gentleman of means, determined to make the experiment at his own expense and with no object of gain, but purely from humanitarian motives, and his es tablishment at No. 1 Oarondelet street is now in full operation. On la nrday last a large number of persons visited his office, including many professional men, to whom he exhibited the tibde o(ljternllti of vaccinating direct from the cow, of w'hich he has made a study for niany years. It is simple in the extreme, ani for the benefit of those of our readers who do not belong to the profession, (who, of course, know all about it). we shall en deavor to explain the process. It requires iLe possession of \ T \(T('INATED HEIFRi, which in Europe costs $4000. and in New York is valued at (1(1,000, anti in order that the vaccine v ru" shall be maintained fresh and vigorous it tnas to be constantly transmitted from one animal to another. the conditions required being that that the heifer shalh be from eight to fourteen months of age, experience hav ng taught soei-n taiste and medical men that at this period of the life of the animal it cannot communicate disease to the human body , that the virus is In its great est state of intensity after the fourth day of the vaccination and until the seventh. Under the ironmestanees it will be readily seen how LAiORIIOCl AND hXtI'ENiITE must be the task of keeping on hand vaccinated animals. hbe animal exhibited by Dr. de Zayvs on Batur day was a heifer ten or twelve months old (laid on an operating table specially arranged for the purpose), with seventy vaccine pustules, fully de veloped, above the udder, from which he demon strated the process of transmitting the virui to the human body,,sand its preservation It glass tubes in its liquid form. We need not dwell upon the objections to vaccination FROM AIRM TO ARaI, owing to the terrible danger of transmitting with the virus some constitutional disease from one person to the other, the truth of which Is uni versally admitted. Our purpose is to give to the public Dr. de Zavas' reasons for the necessity of doing away with all forms of vacoone virus, except that which is communicated direct from the cow or from the diminutive glass tubes in which it is confined in its liquid form, and by way of preface we will say that he maintains .thes it requites the entire inooulating liquid of one postule from the cow to act as a positive preventive against small-pox. We can do no better than quote from the com munieation of Dr. de Zayas to the Board of Health to convey his doctrine and that of thi, most eminent physicians of the old and neW' worlds. The preventive virtue of the vacoine matter, says Dr. de Zayas, is absolute in the case of the greater number of those vaccinated, and temno rary in that of the smaller number. Even among this latter class, it is almost absointe until the age of adolescence. timall.pex rarely attaoes those who are v iin ated before the age of ten or twelve year. ti is from this age until 80 or 35 that persons ARE MOffT EXPOSED to the contagion. In addition to its preventive virtue the val'cin. matter introduces Into the system tan cflt-out, which mitigates the symptoms of m.n.!l-,t ., shortens its duration and diminishes ior'e.l, i ably its gr.vitc.

Revacciation' is the only test within the reach of science for distinguishing those who are PERMANENTLY IPROTECTED from those who are so only in a degree more or less prow unoned. Statistics indicate for this lat ter class a proportion. Dr. de Zavas intruodces besides, other propo si ions, whth, hý,w ver, are addressed more per ticularlv to the Dedical profosei )n. He aided, in eonversation with us, that according to ita'ti tics the propnrtion of those permanently prttected by direct vaccina'ion is abu 91 per cent, whilih, aa compared with other methods, shose a vast differeuce in favor of the direct system. Our special interest in Dr. de Z cyas' vaccine in. stitutlo- is, we wish our readers to clearly under s'and, not due to a desire of attributing to him any invention or new discovery, but to b ing the system prominently befre the public, and lIVE DUE (REDIT to the eminent physician who has. regardless of the griat expense and labor which it has en tailed upon him, introduced it among us. For six o- seven years small pox has been alarming. ly prevalent among us, and during the past few monthA (until recently) had acquit-ed the propor tiens of an epidemic. Any effrt to put a check to the loathsome and fearful malady, all of our readers will agree with us, should be oommendd and enoouraged.. In h:s sommunioation to the Board of Health, Dr. de Zrysa speaks as follows: "If then vaccine matter, that precious gift with which Jenner has endowed humanity, has diminished the number,of the blind, preserved beauty, prolonged the mean term of life and contributed powerfully towards the increase of population, what is there strange in the welcome and favor *bich have been accorded to it by all civilized peoples?" We can find no better expressions to close our reference to h,7 instilution of Dr. de Zayas, which we hope sincerely will become a permanent one among us. THE LOG CRUSADE. The Marshal has received a letter from his deputy, J. J. Gainey, dated Orange, Texas, stating that he had just arrived at that point after sta tioning deputies along the Sabine river at differ ent points, each being furnished with two keep ers and a guide and necessary horses to enable them to get over the work more rapidly. The ground each has to hunt is about twelve miles square. The deputy states that the timber to be seized extends to Cameron and Vernon parishes, (seven thousand will cover the number). with about two thousand railroad ties. Very little was found on the Louisiana shore, but a great amount was run up the bayous on the Texas side. Some question has been raised about the Mar shal's right to seize logs on the Texas shore of t'ie SabinA river, as it was not known whether his jurisdiction extended there. The following dispatch was received by Col. Wharton: ORANOE, Tex, Aug. -.-f-an seizure be made of logs on T xas shore of Sabine. There is a large number of railroa 1ties cat fr m govern ment land. Will I seize them also? GAI Ez". The question was submitted to the United Btates District Attorney, whohas at as yet given an opinion. It appears before Texas was admitted to the Union the boundary line was the Texas shore of the Sabine river, and Louisiana'sd urisdiction ran up to that point. If the cession did not change this the Marshal would have control over the logs on the Texas shore. If the boundary be tween the States is the middle of the river he would not. MItW. GAINER A£GAIN IN COUItT. A'New Suit Institutel and An Inunction Issued. It would appear that we were never to hear the last of the Gaines case. After the litigation in the United Stites court had been brought to a close and the matter referred to the master in chanoery to make computations, Mrs. Gaines was oongratulated through the press on her emancipation from court, but it appears all this was a little premature, for yesterday, in the Sixth District Court. Manuel de Ltano filed a suit against Mrs. Gaines in a measure reopening the old case. It will be remembered that there was a tract of ground included to the old Gaines claim, situated at the corner of Perdido and Circus sheets, in the immediate neighborhood of the Poydras Market. It is regarding this tract that suit has been en tered. De Limao alleges in his petition that it was on the seventh day of May, 11477, he entered into a written contract or agreement with Myra Clark (iines cv WAY 01 COMPt'IOMITNG a suit of Myra Cark (I tines va. flanuel de Liano for the sum of $70110, by which he was to have the full title and ownerehip free from all incnom brances of the property then in dispute, situated, as has been said, at the corner of Perdido at d Circus streets. The petition goes on to state that the number of said suit was 2734 of the United States District Court. Further, that prior to the making of the agreement of compromise, before r.ferred to, of the 7th of May, 1877, a judgment had been rendered recognizing Mire. Gaines as the full owner of the property before describod. and that the terms of this decree declared that Mrs. Ga(nes was entitled to all the rents, bent fits, etc.,belonging thereto. Petitioner now alleges that the contract of compromise he had mide wan intended by both parties thereto as an adjulst ment and settlement of all claims and in full of all demands. That he has ever been WILLINCt TO OARRY OUT in full the terms of his agreement, and that on the 10th of August he made a legal tender to Mrs. Gaines the sum of $7000, and he asked that this agreement she made be carried out, The petition goes on to allege that be has good reason to fear that Mrs. Gaines is about to disturb him in the possession of said property, and he asks his affidavit and bond being con sidered, that an injunctioo assue restraining Myra Clark aliues from in any manner interfering with him in the p Isessiou of his property; and, further, for a judgment declaring the agree ment entered into on the 7th May, 1977, of full force and effect. The writ was issued on De Liano'e giving $1000 bond. THE HAlD-iUP ONES. How They Are Gettlng Notlees to quit From Landlords. It needs only a cursory glance at our streete and the number of idle men upon them to con. vince one that there must be much sllfering amonset the poorer clasres. Around the Cnu tom-House, about the City Hall, on Canal street, all day th, re lingers a crowd, whose very anxiety of countenance betokens their unfortunate situa tion and the pressing demands of those at home. 8eldom, if ever before, have we had so many poor women-some of them, it is true, impos. tors--begging for vctualse, and never has the stroller on the boulevard been so importuned for nickels, "For the love o' God, sir, only a nickel!' In the rear portion or the city there are many families whose sole subsistence is WHAT MAY hE I;iit.lIrlIT IN by the chil.lren after a day's tramp with the di lapida.ted market IutBket, and in the more thickly 'ettledl equrl want prevails. All this is not occa ,toned by any peculiar dearth of business, but is ie natural result of the season here, for during tie summer months labor is always reduced to a minimum, and naturally more idle men are seen. ItBt this year several causes have united to bring about these results to a greater degree. The description of the Packard dynasty was one of these. During Radical domination in Lou. isiana the offices had been multiplied to such an extraordinary ex ent that, whole battalions of men found in them their livelihood. All of hbie army went by the board WHEN TII EIt ('11E" FEIL, and after having luxuriktoe for so long a time in the enjoyment of official rosis they now find themselves at a loss what to do. Pack rd's ptlico, too, contained about five hun dred, who are all now, or nearly all, withou, work. Then there was the Cuetom-House filled with nolitical strikers and ward men, who are on the streets, to say nothing of the one hundred decap itated wi hing the lacs few weeks. What first attrac ed the attention of the DE.Mo. CRAT reporter t,' the above condition of thirgs, was the fact that in the justice of the peace courts there have been filed lately a large in crease of landlords' notices to their tenants to quit premises on account of non-payment of rent. All over the city constables are serving these notices, and Tide lARDaIIIP TO RESULT from such action ma) be ea'ily appreciated. In one case a man of fine education, a writer of more than ordinary power, who has been strug gling for some time against adversity, with a sick famdy on his hanaes, met the reporter and re lated his case. "I've got a little house," said he, "jdUt barely large enough to shelter my little ones, for which I pay $10 per month. No! I should hive said, I don't pay, for I can't. To-day I got this paper; look at it," handing over a legal notice to quit. "Now, I can't get the money. I've tried to do everything to get it, bu, failed. I don't drink, yet I cannot get work. God knows what will be come of me when my furniture is put into the street. I can't raise money enough to hire even a hand-cart, and have hardly had food enough for body and soul, Tell me, now, WHAT's A MAN TO Do? 'Don't you think the landlords ought to be more lenient during the midesmmer witn tenants they know will eventually pay ?" This is only one instance that the reporter happened to come across, but is a fa.r sample of others. As a rule, it has been said the landlords of New Orleans have been pr verbially lenient, but for rome reason it seems there are a large num bar who are exceedingly exacting. If the notices to quit were all the evils the impecunious tenants were annoyed with it woul I be hard, but yet not entirely demoral'zing, bat what follows is much worse. Immediately up ,n the debtor's furniture reaching the street a vi-it of provisional seizure is levied upon it and every ar tiole not specially exempte ! by law is hurried off TO TEE CONSTABLE'S WAREHOUSE, there to be sold. With the dull serason upon us. with so many out of employment, and with the brightest proe petes for a winter when everybody can find work, there ought not to be too much squeezing. The crop outlook is a source of coougratnlat oa by our merchants, the reduction of taxation under the stable government of Gov. Nicho Is, the perfect quiet everywhere, ought to wviah a ,metbking in the scale and create more confidence to the property hollers. The Yacht Regatta.

A FEW NOTES REL tTIVE TO ADBCOTllW ING1 TAX COLLEL'TORN. Dulnclet neenles Fulton'a Assertions as to HIs Headiness to Receive Packard Warrants. Canezt, Theophilus T. Allain's ex-ltadical tax collector for the parish of Ibervilhe, has made his appearance at THE AUDITOR'S OFFIOE, and squared his accounts to the tune of $4000, which he has paid into the treasury, preferring that course to a civil and criminal trial which was about to be brought against him. Interested parties wanted $1300 or so of his moneys "held bacL" by the Auditor, but he wanted the full amount paid into the Treasury, and in it went without any holding baoc or time deposits. Other ex-collectors are expected to sorape together such Iunds as they can com mand, and "walk up to the Captain's office and set tie" shortly, as the filing of suits against them will be commenced at once, and while some may wait until the district attorneys got after them, others will not run the risk of a prolonged visit to the big hotel at Baton Rouge, and will not be back ward in coming iorw rd. The Adjutant General is employing his leisure time now in scanning TnlII MILItC t,IAV.R of Eastern, Middle and Western States, with a view of preparing a Nhil to be presented at the next session of th·I Ligi.la tire, and which it is ,xpeoted will, if paPsed, p ace this State on an equtal mililia footing with ony Bate in the Union. Considerable was said about the Slate-House during the day about tx-Tax Colletolor Fulton's oase and his claim that he owed the State but t21,000 instead of $5',,000). In connection with this claim, it was said by some that tihe warrant stub books found in the the Au litor's oftice could not be wrong and it was thon.ght strange, too, that Fulton totk the trouble to have nTI OWN HtO)(tK RE .tV1:tD and put away out of Fight the moment there was a prospect of success for the Nicholls govern ment. T ie books referred to have not yet been pro duced, and showing, as they must, Fulton's ac counts, it is a-serted openly that there must be crookedness ill them somewhere, else he would not have taken the tr'nble to smuggle them out of the way, as was Johnson's. It is hinted, too, that James [. Clark, or "Big Rix," as be is called, might figure in some way in the books with his friend Kellogg, and to cover both, the books of the First District as well as the Auditor's are retained. Kellogg's operations and functions were not, as has been repeatedly asserted by the DEMOcRAT, confined to executive duties, but he made himself THlE flBes BLACKMAILER to make "calls" on tax collectors for money, and in one known instance compel'ed Carey. of the Third District, to give him $500 cash, which is only an irolated instance. He must have been after larger hauls than that, too, and would use his power to rake in s'amps, one of his intimate friends oflTr ng at one time to secure a tree and full pardon of a convicted murderer FOR THE RNUti SUM OF TWENTY 'Tit'ICtAND Dp)LIARR in greenbacks. This proposition was made and the pardon guaranteed upon payment of the money, and the circumstances attending are well known to at least a halt dozen pereons now in the city. If Kellogg would pardon a murderer for $20,000 he would undoubtedly divide profits with the average tax collector, and that i, the argument used by those who seem to think that Fulton is endeavoring to cover Kellogg's operations. In con nection wrth Fulton's assertions relative to tote State Treasurer tha' official denies that he ever said to Fulton that he would receive his warrants as cash, but says that he told Mr. Fulton that he would receive as cash only such warrants as were l'kally receivable for taxes; that be was ap proached time and again to receive similar war rants in settlement and refused, and that he refused to receive any settlements until the bar ri^adea were taken from his oftice doors. Packard, he says, offered to remove th*m long enough to permit Fulton to make a settlement, but tte treasurer refused, unless they were re moved permanently. Mr. Fulton has already been subptmnaed to ap pear BEFORE THE AUDITORAItL COMMITTEE, and will have an pportunity to explain thewhole matter, and Po-karkd may also be summoned at no early day. It is said by those who ought to know that 'nliron is miotakakn when be rays ho I,tend, d to return here from Calif rnia., or woul I return if a telegraphic commone waa sent him, antd the records of the telegraph office might. if produced, prove that the contrary was the case. He contemplated at one time A 'fRI 'TO EI OPE, and was to have goI.e from Hani Francitco to Niw York, where he was to meet "td.g ihx," and after bor,,g jril id by his family, was to have le.t the ,culntry and remained until the "storm,' as they called It, blew over.
