the four chiefs of Sioux" tribes who were

An the day wore on they began to long lor woods

They wondered, and well they miiriit, for
this was civilization. It showed th.-m a type of progress;
It spread before their eyes 500 years of enfuhtenuicnt

la a Confidence Game or a Trick ef Spanish
Agente?Senor Bum to Be Examined
at Hia Own Requeat-Apprehended
Disaenaion Among Bepublican
Leaders-The St.
Domingo Wrangle.
Wabiiinoton, June 11, 1870.
A pretty lively sort oi week baa it been here on the
whole. Tho Cuban Dona lobby mare's neat, the
St, Domlugo wrangle, tfceoity elections, the arrests
ot two people for contempt of the mighty House of
Representatives, and an unusual quantity of un
pleasantnesses, large and small, nave nerved to keep
the public Hero in a high state of delicious excitement,
and afforded a relishable novelty in the midst
of the dreamy monotony of Congressional proceedings.
The Cuban lobby sensation gtows small by degrees
and beautifully less. The more one pierces through
Its stunning looking shell the more one becomes
oonvinccd or its almost complete emptiness. What
at ibe first examination promised to develope into
something which would involve members of Congress,
Cuban envoys and well known characters
about town In a most disreputable scheme of bribery
and corruption, has dwindled into a very insignificant
affair Indeed; a mere lobby trick
at the most in which certain confidence
men got possession of a quantity of valueless bonds,
for what precise purpose does not appear, or possibly
a not very honorable ruse ae guerre on the part of
the Spanish Minister to strangle the growing sentiinedt
in lavor of Cuba and defeat in advance the
contemplated effort appoluted for next Tuesday by
the House of Kepresentatives.
Ben Butler ilgures very curiously in the
whole of this proceeding, lie claims to be
on both sides of the question. Loud in
his declarations of sympathy with Caba, he
nevertheless js laboring very earnestly to develop
nvaiivMiinir tn InitirA hoi* /Miliar lTrwlnv*
viwjwjjun iwvumvvM w i?ju<v v?wv# ^??w.
authority from the House to investigate how the
gold conspiracy testimony got prematurely Into
print, he 1ms expanded bis Inquiry until It seems to
take In nearly everything In ami out or Congress.
Instead of reporting what was expected of him?
namely, how General Garfield and his clerk came to
hire out the testimony taken before the Gold
Conspiracy Investigating Committee?he has
apparency forgotten ail about that subject, and
bulled himself in summonina Tom, Dick und Harry
to know how the lobby is conducted, Uow many
members have been bribed and how many newspaper
men have lent themselves to Jobbery. Ho has
employed detectives, it la said, to dog people about
and listen to their conversations. It is said he wag
privy,to a scheme to kidnap the fellow D. B. Taylor
from Canada to the United States, so that the whole
story about the Cuban lobby might be disclosed.
But Taylor was too smart to be caught
that way, declining all suspicious invitations
to fishing pat ties, and other traps laid to get him
outside the sacred limits of the Dominion. Had it
hf?An for thin Intiruiiinnrlan invpsttirntinn nf Rut.
ler tlio Cuban lobby story still would have been en
tombed among the secrets or the Grand Jury room.
Butler is, therefore, responsible for the whole of this
6udden flood of false light upon the Cuban question.
It Is his Iault if, as a result, some votes that
before were sure for Cuba are found on the
other side when Banks' resolutions come
up for discussion next Tucsdar. Indeed
Butler, though pretending to be working hard lor
Cuba, does not hesitate to state that Banks'report
is a lallure; that it shows no such condition of belligerency
as is recognized by the law of nations, and
that when the question conies up members will disappear
from their seat3 rather thau give their consent
to support a movement which is suspected of
bavin* bribers and swindlers for its advocates.
In one of my recent despatches I called attention
to another peculiarity of Hit* investigation. It has
been entirely ex partp. Seilor Uuiz, than whom
there is no more respectable man in this country,
who has been mentioned i? one of the leaders of the
bribery conspiracy, lias never been examined,
though he has asked General liutler to summon him,
declaring that he could clear up evetyth.ng
that lias been said abont him. He
states that it is utterly false from beginning
to end, the whole story, so
far as fie Is concerned. His name, he states, was
not on any contract, agreement, or memorandum, as
either principal, accessory or witness, aud lie is ready
to swear to all this and more. Now, after having
thus applied to be examined, why has General
Butler failed to giant the request or Seflor Ruiz?
AVhy not give him a chance to explain under oath?
Why not give both sides an impartial heanng ?
1 learn that Seflor Ruiz, despairing of getting jnsticc
at the hands of Butler, has applied to Judge
Bingham, who is chairman of the Judiciary committee,
aim it ts probable he will be granted his long desired
opportunily to make an explanation.
With all Butler's admitted si.rewdness and cunnlntr.
it ja evident he troes on a wild croosn
chitsu once in a wlitle. Thus, in this very
investigation, when the name of Mr. Far.
sons turned up as that of a person who 1
had procured bluff old Ben Wade's Influence for
Cuba; Butler forthwith jumped at the conclusion
that; Marshal Parsons, of the Onltcd Siaies Supreme
Court, was the individual, and actually had the innocent
Marshal laid out for execution in his report.
The |Parsons referred to, as your correspondent
assured General Bntler, was an entirely
different man. Should it turn out i
that the genial and good natural Sedor
Roberts, the Spanish Ambassador, is at the bottom
of this movement it is generally admitted that he
will lind himself In a very unpleasant fix. It would
be u serious charge against a foreign minister, and
how It would affect lus relations with our government
is being seriously discussed. It is generally
thought it would result in Ins pa-sports being
handed to him by Secretary Fish. For a minister
to eugago in the business of trumping
up charges of bribery against Congressmen
is no slight offeuce. it is no joking
matter, as Air. Roberts would could soon discover.
Ilut, of coursu, 1 am not alleging that the story is
true; I am only stating the theory, and explaining
that, ii I'orrect. the Spanish Minister would, in all
probabillty.be Invited to return to his native country.
William L. Marcy gave John Crampton his
walking papers for an offeaee or not nearly sui.li
large proportions.
The indications In the Senate for the past week or
two point to a division among what are termed the
leaders of the republican party. It looks veiy much
as if the old condition of affairs that existed during
Andrew Johnson's ad minis! ration was about to be
repealed, one nart of the party going with the President
and another onnosini/ him. In the nresent In.
stance the radical republicans will go with the
administration, while the conservatives will try. to
form the nucleus or a uew party, atllliatlng more
or less with tho democrats to break down government.
The debate on St. Domingo has developed
this feeling to an extent which was not anticipated
by either party, certainly not by the administration.
It is said that the President himself expresses surprise
at the hostility oi such men as Ferry, Sumner
and Schura towards him. His friends have advised
him to draw the reins tightly on these gentlemen,
so as to make them work within ttie party traces.
Grant, however, Is nut as <uick tempered as Johnson
Was, neither Is he quite as hold, ills inexperience in
public affairs makes Him more or less timid, or at
least tolerant of the opposition of such men as Sumner.
The old Jealousy of the military power, which
cropped out to such a degree when Grant was
elected, has not quite died out. In the Executive
session, the other day, It is said Sumner accused the
President of endeavoring to set up a military despotism.
For one, if this was contemplated he
wanted to know It. The effort to prevent military
officers from holding civil positions was another
ebullition of this same feeling- The Cuban
question is another rock upon which tho republicans
are likeiv to snllt. There Is known to be a lauro
majority in the House, made up of republican# and
democrats, and a respectable minority, It not more,
in the Senate, that favor the recognition of the
Cubans as beliigi'rents. The administration, uuder
the guidance of Mr. Fish, stiil holds to its old position,
and already a prominent lawyer naa been engaged
to wrlto down Bants' report lor the newspapers.
The fact that thLs gentleman is connected
with the State Department as counsel is supposed to
show thai the administration is disposed to continue
to pursue the policy heretofore adopted towards
Cuba unless Congress should decree otherwise. The
financial questions are another source ol division,
the Western republicans being antagonistic to those
from the East on all questious of currency or bankIn
y. Altogether ttio councils uf the party ate by no
Means hurmouious, uud the bicacti is widening
The Hoiue has made sad havoc with the Senate
amendments to tlie Legislative Appropriation
bill, the tirst that has come back after
going through the upper House. The Senate
piled on amendments to such an extent
that all the economic ideas of Mr. Dawes were upset,
and the sum total of tho appropriation was half as
much more aw agreed upon by the House. The
Hou^e Committee on Appropriations lias gone to
work ami cut out nearly all the amendments, and
now the bill, goes to a conference committee, where
It will be wrangled on by the coti/rires of tlie House

IjmC evening, on the forty minutes past five
P. M. train from Washington, Senator Cameron's
fishing party left the national capital on tlieir
Ions talked of piscatorial excursion into the moua- '
turns or Northwestern Pennsylvania. The party
witch left Washington consisted of the President
or the United States, Mrs. Grant, Miss Nellie Grant,
Master Jessie Grant, Postmaster General Creswell, q
Senators Edmunds, of Vermont; Howe, of Wisconsin,
and Robertson, of South Carolina; Representative
Hooper, of Massachusetts; Generaf Porter, Private
Secretary to the President; Marshal Sharp and
Wife and son, and last, though not leabt, General
Cameron, the host.
A special car had been secured for the occasion,
which added the extra comfort of seclusion. The m
weather at the tune of starting was anything but ji
encouraging. Not satisfied wltii fifteen days of rath, u
after an Intermission of one day the floodgates were p
again opened, and the well soaked face of nature ri
was subject to another drenching. When the Presl- tl
dent arrived at the train with his family, the rest of f<
the party awaiting him there.lt was just finishing t
np a very severe shower^ Arrlvlnz at Baltimore the u
party took carriages across ttie city for the p
depot of the Northern Centra! Kalhvay p
for Harrlsburg. Hero tlic palatial Presidential car p
of the Pennsylvania Hallway was la readiness. The n
party immediately embarked. The gorgeous saloons, t,
commodious staterooms, silk trimmings, mirrors j,
and numerous lighted candles were rather more a
suggestive of tbe journey or a royal family titan of a n
plain republican President, attended by a few of the p
higher officers of the government, on a Uniting ex- p
curslon. ri
t forty minutes past seven P. M. we left Haiti- n
more, our car being attached to the regular train a
for the North. A sumptuous lunch was now spread c
in the main saloon, and was much eojoved by appetites
not only whetted by tbe absence of dinner, but 0
as well by the ride. o
At midnight we reached Harrlsburg. The train
was halted near the residence of General Cameron,
where the party disembarked to pass a few social hours
while awaiting the departure of the Erie train, ?
to which it was proposed to attach our car. The a
spacious parlors of the mansion occupied by General ?
Cameron were thrown open with their usual b<?pl- ?
tallty. Mrs. Cameron, assisted by her daughter, ,,
Mrs. Wayne McVeigh, and by Mr. McVeigh, her t)
son-in-law, the newly appointed Minister Rest- 0
dent to Constantinople, received the distinguished t
guests. After some minutes passed in conversation ti
the party were entertained at supper. "
(Shortly alter two o'clock me car returned from tho :]
depot. We once more embarked and turned in for fl

breakia-ted at Willlamsport. The clouds were not vj
promising much of a piscatorial success. Still we hi
pursued our way, determined to uy a haori a< least, ei
At precisely noon to-day we reached tliiahainlet, a oi
station 011 the Krie Railroad about, iuu milS east of
Krie. The surrounding scenery is wild and mouu- rl
talnons, A narrow denle here passes between two
ranges of hills. Kettle Creek here finds a rat>id y(
course towards the broad bosom of the Susqueliati- ai
na, and drains a number of small mountain stroanu m
abounding in front. Here we have joined a party t(;
which lett Uarrisburg in advance, arriving yester- ?
day. This party, made up by Don Cameron, Is composed
of Dawson Coleuian, of Lebanon: General a;
Kane, of Kane; Ceneral iteynoidsand ill'- Hiestand, y<
of Lancaster: Messrs. Colder arid McCornilck, ?'
and Dr. Charlton, of Uarrisburg; Mr. Her- ol
dick, of Willlamsport; Mr. \Vist;;r, of Duncan- J)
non, and Mr. Duffy, of Marietta. They have brought w
with them all the convenio cos of living and sleep- yt
luu, a hotel on wheels, saloon. dining and kitchen rt
cars. ' At one o'clock the PresidMit, accompanied by y*
General Cameron and several 01 he.s, visited the reeldonee
of Mr. Noyes, a prominent citizen of West port,
and was eutertalned by an old fashioned Peunsyi- n,
van I a dinner. The rest of the two parties were ?:
feasted on the train. Later in the day those who in
felt disposed to tisti set out, and were requested to
report and in cose of success it was proposed to
make a general demonstration. Senator Edmunds, tt
alluding to our appetites and sport, remarked that
It was a war of iho lluns against the Fins. lr

The continued appearance of rain debarred the ^
President from indulging at all in the angling sport r<
it VVestport. This was a disappointment, as the
success of his tvout Ashing experience last year had
excited his desire to try ajraln. Yesterday aiternoon w
a small party having started returned alffer a brief P'
stDsence on account of the rain. Notwithstanding "
this fact, however, there was no lack of trout, and
tho culinary accommodations on one of the cars E
enabled ?il to Indulge their taste for them, If they hi
could not gratify the.r tiisie for the sport. After darlc m

In view of the prospective rise in the streams, at six l,

this morning we again set out, but had proceeded
but a few nnlea when the train was brought to a 1?
short stop by an enormous landslide which covered 01
the track to the depth of twenty feet and a width ai
of at>out 200 feet. There being no prospect sf
of getting tho track cleared the party walked over ui
the immense pile of earth, rocks and trees to a train h
on tho opposite side. On this train we rode as far as hi
Wililamsport, where we dmed. Thence the train

lie axle of one of the trucks and tue Hoor of the car.
i'lio boy was routed out of his place and quite a

iisp'.sc'i to be gaiicy. and said he had no favors to
