THK SUNDAY MORNING APPEAL-MAY 1870.
m bonds issued in their room and stead are, and the State is now liable for that amount. It is evident that no one concerned is an innocent pur chaser, consequently the committee would urge that the said bonds, num bered as aforesaid, be rendered null and void, and for nothing held, and that the General Assembly take eueh other and further steps in the matter as tbey may deem necessary. With reference to thedeposits matte in the Tennessee National bank at Memphis, the matters pertaining to the so-called school fund left with said bank, the committee have thin to report: That the object mma not so much to prove any one's criminal con nection with the manipulation of the assets of Tennessee National bank, or what is generally known as the school fund, but their primary object has been to secure to the State whatever of money or valuable securities way have been left from the dehris of the Tennessee National bank. Whatever may have been developed in the direction first indicated, has been in cidentally so, as the committee were of opinion that, no matter how much of corruption aud criminal cupidity indulged In to the detriment of the State financially, and to the tarnish ment of the Bute's honor, that the people of the State are tired of listen ing totaleaof rottenness upon the part of those who should have been the protectors of the State's interest. There was tttt.OOQ in 7 I'nlted States bonds, returned to the Comptroller from the Tennessee National bauk ; these were first deposited in the Na tional bank ol the Republic and after ward chaneed to the Fourth National bank of New York, where they are now subject to the order ot the Treasurer. The interest on this -,-000 of bonds has been used in payiug the interest of the State debt, but this can be bufcter understood by a state ment furnished the mmittee by the Treasurer, to-wit: Collected from the Tennessee National Bank, $50,100, in bouds of the United States in the Fourth National Bank, New York. The sum of tH,02 72 in currency, used, as was the interest on the ', OHO in bonds, in payment of inte-pr-t on bonds of the State, said interest amounting to $i3w M. Net amount, rw .Iwlii. timr attorney's fees and expenses, and used in the payment of Htnte ckims and memlers of the With General Assembly, $51, lis sU. These amounts, in the aggregate 4os,;j:S 13, is what has been received from the Tennei' National Bank and from intercut on bonds leaving f 3W,72S 7 of the MBVSS obtained by the bank. From testimony the committee learn that the very best quality of assets of the Tenueasee National Bank were turned over to Mr. T. W. Brown, of Memphis. From the last statement of said Brown, now on tile in the Treasurer's office, the committee find that the majority of these assets, consisting of first class bills receivable, notes, etc., have been ftolierted, or are in a tair way forcol teetaoa. These assets, would go far toward indemnifying the State tor the losses sustained by tbe State at the bands of the managers and manipu lators of the Tennessee National Bank. Yet, a suit is now being prose cuted by said Brown against the State, and in the event of a decision against the State, these assets will then go to indemnify the fiscal bonds men of George B. Butter, the Presi dent of said Tennessee National Bank. The committee would respect fully suggest the propriety of look ing into this matter and see that the State is protected. The committee herewith give a synopsis of the re iort ( said Brown, in order that the Itenwal Assembly may see wnat as sets properly Uikoging to the State, a the committer; couqef ve have been rolteued and are now held bywaid Brown .twaiting the issue of the suit referred to now padding n the courts. Th statement is as billow ? Collected, $l,b30 & ; ood and will be collated some in judgments and some se cured by die-to of trust and wort gagtx on property $ik,HS 15; besides some notes, the amount of which is pot earned. The Committee would refer to said report tor more particular informa tion, which is filed with this report. The Committee were led, from a letter fumkshed them, to believe that George B. Butter was still in posses sion of information that would be beneficial and would lead to substan tial benefits to the State, information that no former investigation in this behall had developed. Consequently a summons was sent to New York for Mr. Rutter, which was obeyed, and the committee, alter quoting that por tion of his bkter referred to, and whk-h led us to the inferences spoken of, desire that the testituouy of Mr Butter go, together with his written voluntary statement, as an entirety to the people ol the State. The tetter iipoVen of contains the following: "I am, and have beeu, desirous of securing to the State ail the informa tion in my possession relative to the Teunessee National Bank, but I must have some legislative protection in this matter, as J have cause to fear the machinations of those who fear the result of my statement,."' The committee, without altering in any way either the statement or testi mony of Mr. Butter, herewith give them in lull. TESTIMONY OF MR. Kl TTKR. George R. Rutter, being duly sworn according to law, deposed and said: 1 am thirty-nine years of age; 1 re side in Memphis, Tennessee. The Tennessee National Bank was organ ised in latta. at which time I was elected prestueut of said bank ; subso il aently the bauk became the depos itory of the Hindi of the State, through political iufiuences, with the under standing among the leading Radicals ul the State amoug whom were Sam. Arnell, Jan. Muliins, w. J. mun, D. A. Nunn, Senator W. K. Hall, John Eaton, Barbour Lewis, and others that thi- bank was to support the Badical party, and be their financial agent and furnish money to "run the machine" wben ter (hey wanted It. This was the general understanding, and was talked over prior to and subsequently to the passage of tho bill making the Tfeouese- National Bank the fiscal affwut of the State. This bill was passed with the understanding that the Treasurer of the State was to be influenced to designate the Tennessee National Bank as the depository of the State, and Messrs. Aroell, MulliiiH, Richards and Wines, and others, did so advise the Treasurer of the State (to wit, Stanford) to make this bank the depository. The influences brought to bear on Stanford wers v aria us. About the time the bank was desig nated as a depository Stanford and inystoll were initiated into the Loyal 1eague, iu the basement of the Capitol building iu Nashville. About this time he (Stanford) was advised to deposit what was known ns the school fund with the bank. At the meeting of which 1 speak, the Loyal League voted me a vote of thanks for what I had done, and speeches were made by various par ties. And the election for Governor and members of Congress coming on about that time, or soon after, the necessity for money was made known in vigorous language, and I gave be tween $-juo and $1000. They said that they (the Radicals) had everything they wanted but financial headquar ters. All the deposits made by the State in the bank were general de posits, except the State bonds, which wen? special, and were returned intact, and could not be other wise considered, under the law making this bank the fiscal agent of the State. One line school fund) of was in United States 7-.J0s. history of which appears In full in my deposition taken in 14(M. The various sums paid to legislators (or loaned) came out of the general assets of the bank and my personal funds. Some of the persons who received money from me to conduct the passage of the bill and to manipulate the a flairs of the bank were: 1. Mr. Arnell, who received a great deal of money over and above the $5300, which to gener ally believed to be all he got. On the $5500 which Arnell got, he paid, as a credit, Hwo.i tile received monev at other times, the amount of tvhkh , there was no an ountkept; butatcorl- ug w jwugmwii, some vuo or deposit so the sack. fcsjoo were paid to Arnell-glven to him bv Farham and others. One case that I remember, I gav to Mui lins some money ($500) to give Mr. Arnell, not being able to see Arnell personally. This money was given by Muliins to E. P. Gone, who, I afterward learned, gave it to Arnell. Arnell was afraid to receive the money direct from me, on account of Its being found out on him. !fr receipt ever was taken for this money, not even a iii'-iuorandum. J. Mr. Muliins received money to defeat a resolution Introduced in the House of Representatives by Elliott, I believe, "to convert the ,-:. not or bonds into State bonds." MuUins went actively to work to def-at the resolution, bemuse, he said, that if the 7-30's were converted into State tiauds, that I would he called on for them, and that be wanted money to defeat it, and I famished him money. No receipt or irott was given for this money. I will here state that I lost a lot of letters and lar-r ami receipts (mm various persons, acknowledging the receipt of money by letter and re oeipts which have never been found. S. Mr. Richards received money also that has never been accounted for in any way. 4. Mr. Mr El wee received some money that has never been accounted for. Also, Spence. W. J. Smith, and various others. What I mean by no account being taken of the money mentioned In this deposition is, that the bank does not, nor ever did, hold any evidence of indebtedness for this money, disbursed as mentioned above. Owing to the pressure brought to bear uoou this bank bv various Individu als it was not able to meet its obliga tions. Mr. Lowenstein came out to Memphis as the special examiner of the condition of the bank' under the provisions ol the national banking law, with power to damage and other wise injure the institution if he saw fit. I paid him money (black mail) to let the bank and Its atfitirs alone, and not to meddle with it. I have not heard of Lowenstein since, I know of $500 paid him. The capital was but $100,000, and to discharge all the indebtedness of the bank occa sioned by the draws made to meet the obligations to pay members of the leglslature and others mentioned hi this deposition, the funds of the bank were used indiscriminately ; also my personal funds. GEO. R. RITTF.R. ADDKNDA. toestion What time did the Ten nessee National Bank become the de pository of the State, and when were the first funds received as a deposit by the bank? Answer At the time of the passage of the fiscal agency bill. May -X, ft), and soon after, 1 received deposits from the State. Q. What amount of funds did you receive, and how were they depos ited? A. We received revenue (I do not know the amount) and $618,250 of bonds, generally known as the school fund. Q. Did you have any conference with any State omcer in regard to the failure or suspension of the bank and the loss of the school fund; if so, what officer? A. I did, with (jov. Brownlow, in Knoxville, Tenn ; and in that con versation he favored the continuance ot the bank as the fiscal agent ot the state. I had fmjuent conversations with him before and after the suspen sion of the bank, and referred me to Judge Norman as a man who would do me good in any of my transac tions. Brownlow at all times favored the bank. Q. Did you receive any communi cation from G v. Brownlow in regard to your fiscal agency.of the State? If nr. pinna file any such communica tion as partof y answer to this question. A I did. I received tetter ft-m ( iov. Brownlow, dated January ,u, In;:, and filed ro4 marked " ExhibTl A." EXHIBIT A. Stats or Tkxxbssm, ) Executive Peprtmk.vt, Know ilxb, January 7, 1867. ) ueorgs.R. Rutter, Esq.: I have your esteemed tavor of the id, and hasten a brief reply, being pressed with letter-writing. From the first I have uot blamed the bank; it did what all banks legitimately do, procured all the binds it cvukvlaw tulry to operate npon. Stanforsis to Maine; for he knew that he end no right to meddle with the school rand. And let me advise you, once for all, not to confide in Stanford. He now iitates that when he gave you a second receipt, authorizing the fund to be re turned iu greenbacks, he was uuder the influence of liquor, and did not know what it contained. He is believed to have received pay for depositing alone in one bauj mst Middle Tennessee. A committee wifl be called for to investigate his entire conduct. I think the same meu will be appointed who went to Memphis. Those gentlemen are kind in their feelings toward you and your bask. Tbey were all favorably impressed with the honorable and fair manner in which yon acted. They are, more over, quite disposed to indulge and favor the bank and enable it to meet its engagements rather than injure the institution. We all feel so disposed, but we feet outraged by Stanford, and we are disposed to look into his con duct. ery respectfully, etc., W. U. BROWNLOW, Governor uf Ton mum o. O,. Please state why it was that Governor Brownlow warned you against Treasurer Stanford, and what connection had Dr. Stanford With the deposit of the school laud in the bauk ? ZA. He said that Stanford was an old Johnson Democrat, and was not to be trusted under auy circumstanobs. and I think another reason tor it was that he thought Stanford might turn upon the party and "blow'' on them and "show them up" iu their true light. Stanford's connection with the deposits in the bank was honorable; he did what he conceived to be kis duty under the law creating this bank the fiscal agent of the State. Q. What parties were chiefly in strumental in making the Tennessee National Bank the depository of the state, or Sscal agent, and what means was used to secure their influence and co-operation? A, Sotnc of the persons who re ceive ;attoaay connected with the passage of this bill, and to manipulate the affairs of the baukt were Sain A.r ueli, James Muliins, Wm. Spencer, T. B. McElwee, Gen. John Eaton, jr., James D. Davis, Senator W. K. Hall, Wm. Wines, J. fit. MuUoy, K. 8. Rich ards, Wilson Duggan, Harbour Lewis, - Hepburne, John Martin and W. J. Smith. With the exception of Bar -our Lewb, Martin and Hepburne, lt were members of ihe General As sembly of 1S65-6. -i Were the sums paid or ad vanced to the members before or after the passage of the bill ?

Q. Do you know any other or further feet of interest or benefit to the State In connection with the subject of inquiry before the committee? A. In answer to that, allow me to ale the following statement: GEO. R. Rl TTER. STATEMENT OK O. R. Rt TTER, G1TR! WY HIMSET.K. N asiiv ii. i k, Tkiii., April , 1870. Hon. Wm. limn, Chairman, etc.: In compliance with the request matte by Hon. , I hereby give you a brief statement ot the deposit called the school fund in the Tennessee National Bank of Memphis. This bank was organized in January, lfertt, under favorable auspices, and at the time received the State deposits; was making money, but as soon as it be came the victim of political manipu lation its future became sealed. It was agreed among tending Radical politi cians of the State, among whom areS. M. Arnell, James Muliins, Gen. John Eaton. Jr., Barbour 1 . -wis. Smith A Co., that if this bank would stand up to the Radical party ail the weight and power of the party would be brought to bear to favor it by any and ail means. Twen ty thousand dollars was advanced to tbem by which to perpetuate their power in Memphis through the Me tropolitan Police ot that city. Con stant applications and assessments were made npon me for money to support the party in its manipulation of State and local politics. A good deal of money was used by the agents of the bank and myself among lead ing and prominent members of the Legislature ot lst56-7, as also among leading and prominent Radical poli ticians in utter sections of the State, in the appointment of this bank as fiscal agent. Some of these men, among whom am Spence, Mc Bhree, Muliins, Arnell, Eaton, Lewis, etc., when I bad become so completely mixed up in the filthy messes (meshes) of political cor ruption, became so persistent in their demands for money, that black mail and every species ol fraud was resorted I., by some of tbem to obtain money, which was districted among Ioyal Leagues, paid out for the sustenance of negroes transferred by General Suatf) and Sam. Arnell to send them to Congress. Money was paid out to sustain and support Gen eral Eaton's paper, the Memphis Pott. The Prefi und Tinus, the Rad ical State organ, was paid money to assist us in the passage of the hill. Richards, Speaker of the House, was furnished with money to pay his wat rimonial expenses to Chicago. Ck -side of my own statement it will be seen by reference td the last report, that not only did leading men of this party vote for the bill creating fiscal agents, but advised the Treasurer to deposit this fund in this bank, which was fully covered in this bill. I am satisfied that their secret purpose was to take this fund from the hands of the Comp troller, Secretary and Governor, and place it where they honed to manipu late it. Col. Bosson. I foel satisfied, introduced a bill in the Senate to es tablish a State National Bank for po litical purpos, but it laiied, and the Tennessee National Bank was used in its stead. It appears that Arne'l wanted to nonconcur in the passage of the forty-third section. The reason was that he wanted to Insert the name of the Tennessee National Bank and &z it as the fiscal airent bevond doubt. lor I ?at lie- UiU! during its discus sion. The written testimony of all the witnesses is now in the hands of the committee, subject to the order of this General Assembly. And your com mittee, having fully, fairly and im partially discharged the duties as signed to them, without any wish or desire to criminate any one through malice or ill will, and with the same desire to array ail the facts iu the case without any alluring taken from po litical taste or feeling, ask to be dis charged from t he further consideration of the matter referred to them.

Orrirn or thb Dailt Appeal, 1 ManraiB. May 28, 1870. f FINANCE. The money market; m quint and ex change is irregular, both buying and selling, though there ia some disposition to harden on the uheokiug rates, owing to the scant supply eastern bills are taken at par iu one or two caaoa, but generally ' , iliseoual is the rate, while banks check at 'i$'-i premium. Then, again, we heard ; some who wanted currency and offered to sell wxchauge to their neighbors at par or nearly so. The exchange mar ket is oertalnly very much unsettled and no fixed rate can be given. Ranks bay and sell, just as they happen to need the I'urreocy or the exchange. County Warrants are dull; $2500 were taken by a dealer at 7..,.-. City Scrip ia weak and Tennessee money is offering in considerable (nantitiea. We do not learu of any deuiaud and dealers could buy at 65906c. There is no demand whatever tor gold, except jroiu brokers, who buy to ship at 113(114, and the o;iaiu are very light. The New York weekly bank statement Is favorable. The Increase in legal ten ders is quite a noticeable feature. The statement is as follows: Loana decreases' f 710,334 01 Specie decreased 1,:I8,!W0 00 Deposits increased. 1,486,419 00 Legal tenders Increased - ,' 70 Circulation decreased &8.170 00 . OOTTOS. The sales to-day did not foot up more than 200 bales, at about yesler-lay's clos ing tlgurea. The purchases, however, were all in small lota, and were hardly fair indications of what a table woukl bring. Buyers ooinain that there is nothing on the market, notwithstanding the running account of the Chamber of Commerce report soma 14,000 bates on hand, au4 many brokers are getting their offices in order to vacate for the season.

As telegrams from London now frankly admit, one-half of the cotton that ia asnt from India to K a rope already passes through that new channel of trade. Week ago we had occasion u note the wonderful rapidity of the transit by which the raw material from Bombay reached Liverpool via Sues, was manufactured into cloth and was resbipped for the re turn trip within the lapae of forty days from ita first embarkation. But now ap pears another remarkable feature ia this atfririiug change. By lb admission of the Britiah merchants themselves not one-half of thi cotton now goes ail the way to England, but is taken up aud con sumed m ruitU at the Mediterranean porta. We feel safe in quggusling that the Adriatic cities Anuona. Venice and Trieste also come in for a goodly .-.hare. The Italian and Austrian merchants were in the field at the first moment, and have established regular lines of trading steam ers between tueir poit aud tue mgyptian entrepot at the mouth of the canal. The Itsliana, particularly, are exhibiting un expected enterprise in this matter, and the new-born activity of their manufac tures assy be inferred from their ready and large consumption of the raw mate rial. Palermo, Naples, Leghorn Stu Ue nos are regaining their old prosperity and enenry, und thus we see commerce and industry going band in band with science and free institutions. t TRADE. The weather is warm and In every way favorable for the crops, so far as our own section of country is concerned, but from s few other regions the want of rain is a serious drawback. From gentlemen who have traveled through N'et Tenueasee we learn that the prospect was never bet ter. Cultivation is well forward, a well aa the crop itself, which has not been usual since the war at tni season, ff rasa ha been well kept down, and, with a la vorgbiq season, we may look, torward to a bountiful har -.st. 'Throughout iforth Mississippi and Arkansas the same may be said of the fields, which are generally clean, and corn aud uetton have, so far a human ken can discern at thi early stage, a good prospect ahead. The trade of our city is not active. To-day, usually a one. much ie same a yesterday. ItSW WHKAT. We yesterday saw a sample of new wheat, raised in Panola county, Miss., by W. J. Wil banks, Esq. It was consigned to Routes, Vance On,., of thts city,' and was shipped to st. Louis. The grain ia small, yet hard ami plump. This i tj' lirst wheat p,f hj oHl jgMj iil no doubt bnijg a ittUC2f Rrf. The Little Rock (;. ..-in- of a late date contains a t immnjctiun in reference u steam naiee and their influence upon the prosperity of Arkansas, and two of the lines alluded to below have already suc cumbed to fate, but the impetus they lent to our city while they lived only show what we migui ao. TUn article aaya. The trade o( Arkansas Is esgerly sought by many competing cities on the Missis sippi and its tributaries. St. Louis, Lou iavtlle, Cincinnati and Memphis each baye packet line aaoeuuihg ana u)esuenuing our rivers. Freight charge are reduced to a minimum, and the people of Arkan sas are the more enriched by their own prosperity. The greater our devotion to industrial pursuits, the greater the in ducement lor the eatabliabment of uheap mwiuumw wn.u our towiis ayu villages Memphis, just now, outvies all rivalry! Packet lines from that city compete with one another, and even now the rales of charges on freitrbtq aud passengers be tween tnts cUy and Memphis are so re duced that rival companies reap little -prout troin their expenditures. These chargea, when the Arkansas river becomes unnaviganle, will be still further lessened. The railroad com pany baa great advantages, which its managers wilt surely employ in organising a through iiue tor freight and passengers. The contest has already be gun iu the Memphis papers between Adams' White river line aud that which runs In connection with the railroad Adams has pluuk, psrsistensy of purpiate sad capital. We wish him and his rivals great success, aud ouly hope that the op position lines will be so managed that Uoth will be perpetually self-sustaining. The greatest triumph Memphis haa achieved cousisU in the construction of two mighty steam bouts tje Wicks and the Church Whiuh a. e really great barges, capable uf trauspurtimr enormous quanti ties of freight at the greatest spaed and with the least possible cost. They have made the Mississippi another Erie Csual with which railway lines compete in vain. Tbey can transjort hoar, at a freight charge of ten c-duts per barrel from St . Louis to Memphis. From that paint Ar kansas must rely upon smaller boats, built for shallower stream, The saving iu freight charges from St. Louis to Mem phis is greater ihiiu the cost of transler troui the steam barge to the Arkansas river steamers. It thus result that St. Louis, Louisville and Cinaiaaratt are belp leas. Steam barges from thoaa sitles cau uot ascend our rivers, and those cities will be forced to make Memphis the great depository of their products, whence they may ha distributed along tne tributaries of the Mississippi. While Memphis ia thus aggrandized Arkansas in enriched, and on every hand there are wntnintaks bia indications of progress sad prosper ity, which must bless the people of Ar kansas.
