A HAVANA BEPOBT OF CUSTOM HOUSE FRAUDS IN THE ANTILLES. Washington, Feb. 14, 1S76. The following is tho translation of a letter Irom Havana, published in the Epoca, of Madrid, on the 3d of January, on the subject ol Custom House frauds in Cuba: ? Wo immediately throw a veil over a picture the contemplation of which causes us to blush; lor the causes which are dragging us toward ruin are not natural oues, but rather arising from the spirit of peculation which lias infiltrated our social body through all lis pores. To ascribe exclusively to tho Insurrection onr very bad " economic situation, is nonsense; to say that it is due to the tr dllo in gold is to iguoro tho rules ol economic science. Tliero were already indications of foul play In the matter of collecting tolls, though no one thought it was a cancer which tbreatenod to dc- j 6troy tho whole social body. But the j groans ol tho latter finally made known ; the gravity of the disease. Let u.s own it at once and j wituoui circumlocution ; immorality una spread on uu i sides, and the considerable incomes ol the treasury they had cast into their own coders. Facts came to confirm the belief of the public, thanks to the administration ol the justly lamented 1). Cayetano Bonafax autl his worthy successor sorlor Suare/. Vigil. It was first in M.atanzas that a journal (La A urora <Ul Gnmur<j) was about to raise a voico unauthorized by the local authority against the results ol' an immorality much ' more prejudicial than any insurrection, a thousand times more potent than tho one which drags its miserable existence through our forests and mountain ranges. There, with much indignation, were made public tho ' abusos which were committed, incuutestably revealing the causes which made the resources ot the revenue appear 10 nave dwindled. Here is one of the cases cited, amoug many others, by the journals of Matan zas ? We are assured that tbo American bark Wclden, which finished unloading on the 8th inst. in this port, according to her manifest of cargo made on arrival, would have had to pay Jo the revenue the sum of $6,300. but according to a comparative stutoment made by tne Custom House, owing to the direct intervention of His ICxcollency the Governor General of this dislrict the Weldeu has rendered the amount of $3?J,50l, showing against the manifest of the vessel cited and in (aror of the State the sum of $2G.20l.

ANOTHER ACCOUNT. THE ARGUMENT AND DECISION ON ADMI8SIDn> ITT OF THE DESPATCHES? PROVING THEIR DEI.IVERT - PRESIDENT GRANT'S DEPOSITION? ! HAS DABCOCK A SPT HERE FROM NEW TORE? St. Locis, Mo. Feb. 14, 1ST8. The event of to-day was the reading of the much discussed telegrams after the decision of the Court admitting most of them, but still excluding some on technical objections; as, lor instance, one because the handwriting of Joyce, the deceased dooi keeper at the Executive Mansion, who rocetptcd for It on the telegraph book, was not recognized by his numerous follow doorkeepers who were put on tho stand, and had not been proven. It has been a matter of general comment that th& defence, whilo combating the admission of these telograms with such a display of legal Ingenuity, should | themselves have quoted them In their arguments; but this ! manoeuvre has been construed as designed to break their i force before the Jury. Tho argument, which lasted till one o'clock this afternoon, was not only for tho ex| elusion ot the telegrams, but also to show that tliey were utterly irrelevant and worthless. After tho Irony sad aatiro which tits Uumuipua Starrs lud on S nurds* StTPPmfENT. expended on theso telegrams, the ponderous Porter d to-day crushed them out completely, so that if they bad ( been sentient beings, instead of smeared old plocea of i paper, they certainly would have withdrawn their tl diminished heads into the waste-pajier basket. w Babcock's counsel received the decision ef Judge tl Dillon, admitting the tolegrams, with evident disap- P pointment, and Babcock himself again evinced signs of e great nervousness, which did not leave him all day. r< Dyer's last frantic effort to prove Joyce's handwriting ft ham, clerks at ilic Planters' House, In this city, test! j lied to bavin* received anil receipted for sovoral of despatches to McDonald and Joyce in 1874, mostly in j December, among them ono dated December 5, sup- k, posed to be the one asserted to have been sent by | liubcock to McDonald, and to which such objection I has been made. > j; K.

Your correspondent has been allowod the privilege of glancing over the President's deposition, which fi arrived this evening. Its main points, not previously communicated toany nowspaper. aroas follows :?When , jasktd in regard to the suspension of thd Douglass or- i dor, whether Babcock had over miltionced him, the j o President replied that Babcock liad never taken enough hi Interest in too matter to make hitn remember, and although ho could not recollect that Babcock spoke to J> him on the subject of the suspension of that order, the President said on cross-examination that ho did not I know whether Babcock had spoken to Douglass or not. Douglass testified that Babcock did. The President has never seen Anything to shako his confidence In I* llabcock. Bibcock bad satisfactorily explained j tho telegrams to the President, after his indict- ! 1 mont, but he coald not remember the i explanation of any particular telegram, nor could he ??

The President's testimony on ihla point was particularly significant as regards tho despatch?meaning | the dispatcn recommending McGuire:? "We mean It M-I'M." For this telegram ho never raw The President, It I appeared ?n croas-oiatmnation, had never received the j" two protects signed by Carl Schurx, I). P.

Dyer read the despatches In a grimly si*niOcant manner, and ltabcock's bunds, which toy.d K with hie mustache, trembled nervously during thoir *' reading. When such expressions us mum," coohu cc hangs ultitudilum," "matters are hunkey," Ac. | occurred, there was a suppressed tutor every time. Bat even during the reu.ling tho defence It' kept objecting, colloquially, until Judge Dillon rebuke 1 ft them, and suid they must either object formally or not cr at all. Whcu Kruin attacked Dyer, sayiug, during an th argument at the olose ot the proceedings, that tie (Dyer) su did nut understand the law in the case, the Court ad- y ministered a mild rebuke to Kruin, and said such per- w Banalities were nol permitted. Judge l'orter, in concluding his argument against li the admission of the telegrams in the Babcock trial, occupied nearly all tho morning Session to-day. His conclusions wore that they were writings, and whother proven to be what they purported to be in origin and destination, it was still a question of law whet hoi they could he admitted as evidence. He said ho did not by any means admit, however, that this proof aud identi- W llcutlon had been shown. To tho great majority p of those telegrams there were produced no answers at all; such wero morcly hearsay; merely D1 letters relating to lactsor making inquiries which dul nol convoy the slightest hint of u conspiracy; but none T| of these, whatever might bo shown of them, whatever construction put upon them, were admissible as testi- c( <inony until by intrinsic evidence it had been estab- c< fished that General Babcock had know ledge of the ox- l0 istence of a conspiracy. That must first bo provon, ? and it had not been proven. lu Aftor Judge Dorter concluded, Thomas T. Walsh, brother-in-law of Genornl McDonald, chief clerk in his |,j odlco when Su|>orviBor, was called, ami identillod sev- lv oral letters aud despatches written by him at the dicta- fl tion of McDonald, und also identified several signatures \v of bimsolf and Joyce affixed to receipts for telegrams CJ to McDonald, Joyce and others. p. On the opening of the afternoon session Judgo Dillon ic. read the decision of the Court touching tho ADMISSIBILITY OF DKSI'ATCUBS, JJ as follows:?"Respecting the objection against the c., admissibility as evidence of certain despatches p, the Judges have united in the conclusion as p, respects all except two despatches, respec- tp lively dated tho 3d and 5th of December. Wo an reserve the questions arising upon those despatches, tu which aro somewhat novel and peculiar, for further (j, consideration. All the others odored meet with cer- ,,,, tain objections, which we proceed to state and notico cj, and decide. We are of opiuion that the objection to jr, tho desjiatehes, based upon tho ground that ihey aro < (ir not relevant or niateri.d, is not well taken. The jury .)r Is tho constitutional tribunal to determiue controverted questions of fact uuder appropriate advico fr un the <.< ' Court to assist them in tho disrhargo of this duty. If the evidence offered tends in auy degree to cstubllsh the existence ot any material lact, it cauuot lie objected to as irrelevant, but must be received and submitted to the consideration ot the jury in connection with all the facts and clr- ' cumstunccs of the case. To reject the despatches ol- ini fered on the ground that they were irrelevant and im- wi material would bo a decision by the Court tbat such despatches had nothing to do 'with tho alleged con- wi spirucy, and would take that question, which I- a ques- au tiou of fact, from tho jury, whose exclusive province it l" is to decide questions of fact. We do not deem It ex- "" pedieut or proper to romark upon the several dc- ?'; spatchcs, or to say anything in the prosouco of the jury as to tho views of the Court upon tho force 8il and effect of them. It is not to bo inferrod that In admitting the despatches the Court holds that they do or do not connect the defendant with the alleged conspiracy. As to the objection that some of ( tho despatches addressed to the defendant wcro unanswered, wo aro ot opinion that under tho circumstances 'C1 ot the case this alone docs not constituto a sutllcient A! ground to exclude them. Such despatches aro to bo ri. viewed in connection with all tho circumstances of the case, Including the nature of tho despatches, as calling Fr for an answer or otherwise, and tho situation and W relations of the parties, ^nd tho effect to bo given ro to tho circumstances that no answers were returned, if the despatches were received by the de- b? fondant, is to be determined by the jury u|>oa tho Br whole evidence under tho rules of law to bo given in < charge of the jury bearing upou the subject. As to tho despatches botween McDonald and Joyce, confessed con- Vr spirators, such despatches aro admissible as statements ]'o or acts ol conspirators among themselves in further- H. ance of the conspiracy. But as to tho defendant, they <;, go for naught unless ho Is shown try other ovidence to tb be connected with tho conspiracy charged in the indictment." PROVING TUB DESPATCHES. Mr. Kennedy Dufl, manager ol the Atlantic and Pacific Telegraph office at Washington, was called and ex- , plained the manner of handling despatches in that office. One of the despatches in question, and to W winch the defence made most strenuous objections? tho one dutud December 5, 1374, and aascrlou tb havo , boeu sent by Babcock to Joyce?could not, bo found, the package of telegrams ol that day having been lost, and only a copy was pro- re duced. Tills despatch is alleged to have been an answer to one sent liy Joyce from lit. Louis to Babcock and was traced into ibe hands of Uoorgo i Joyce, a doorkeeper at the White House, but.foyco's | eiguaiure had not been idontilled by the prosecution i ? aud therefore its delivery was only inferential. The Court decided tho record and register of tho tolograph odlce did not rcmovo the difficulty tu this j case. | T Those despatches arc tho ones referred to in Jud;e i Dillon's decision given above, and about which he ro- i ' served an opinion.
