When it it is remembered that any member interested in tiiis companv" had the ower of directly influencing by hie vote the spending of public monev in its aid. Vll Ulr doing: umiieu win 1 manifest. The testi mony of Oake- Ames, a member of ongre.s during the greater part of the scheme's niani illation and its prime plotter, is highly interesting. The un ernng sagacity which led him to "ap proach men of influence on public opiniou." naturally selected his fellew uieuiliers a- appropriate subjects for his lilaudisiiuiinte. He put the bait into swallow able form by making it a pur chase and not an out-and-out sift, w ith also the w condition that ifeould be old back at any time. It may, per haps, bo some tribute to Congressional self-respec t to say thattliese precautions were adopted, just as Rochefoucauld de- i finer, all hyocrisy to lie a tribute to vir tue. Are we, however, called on to be-! lieve that the keeu-eyed members who 1 bit ' were the gudsreous which an ig norance of something bevond what "a i 'roito na both sulietantially airree that Senator naaru nail stock offered him, Amesde- . nies that stock was subsequently given ! to Benator "oukling, as asserted bv Mo Comb. Indeed, it is evident that the only question now remaining to be aet-j tied is. Who corruptly obtained Credit Mobilier stock? At this state of the 1 pr.-.dlngs It would 1-e unfair to do any tfaing more than point to the testimony, and endeavor to elucidate the obscure hr conflict :ng points therein. It is a niat l ter for profound reirret that some of the j gentlemen who have heretofore made j The I llioil Pacific Kailroail Invert sucn oroad assertion- of their utter free McComb j dom from all complications with the t "sjn Alolnlior sclieme, should sn soon 'oe obliged to face positive evidence to the contrary, from both sides of this un happy case! It is likely that a stronger attempt than that "of Mr. Alley's in the committee will be made to inval idate McComb's testimony. Whether this lie successful or not ' and invalida tion is only nei-esaary so far as the de tails are concerned the main facts are already established. With real sorrow, we must admit that both Ames's and HcComb's (worn testimony show that Credit Mobilier stock has been used cor ruptly in Congress, knowingly, success fully and more generally than manv have iielieved. That it was used to in- Mucin e legislation We mav believe won i thouirh we may not receive the story of McComb that Ames jiointed to one of the rulings of the Sjieaker as an evi dence of the persuasive influence of Credit Mobilier stock in Congress.

There a marked contrast in the I characteristics of the two narrative-; McComb's story is ingenious if not a j plain recital of facts and is full of points which are too aptly corroborated ! oy external evidence. Ames's lestimo- j ny, which was m a written document. is a plea iu extenuation ; it is parrying and defensive. It would appear that the !:,',. ! .. certain ( ougre.-smen to the Credit Mobilier scheme was effected in some such way as this: Ames desired to place certain shares of the stock where it would bring influence to the I'niou Pacific railroad enterprise, then in a feeble condition. This stock, the exact amount of which is in dispute, was set apart to Ames, with the un derstanding that he was to use it at dis cretion. Mh Wiui. was asked to sign a jiaper agreeing to the transaction; be at tirsi refused, but sulisequeutly signed a paper which he did not read. Out of that transaction grew a dispute about thediiosition of the stock. McComb says he did not approve of placing it among Congressmen without a fair eqjivaleut iu money. Ames say bedid place the stock : but he is not sun how mauy Congressmen agreed to take it aud as he supposed iiostpoue paym ..' But that the stock was distributed anion: the 'oiigreasincn there is now no dispute. Ames, who placed the shared, used every argument to persuade mem bers that it was a tin investment. McComb says that the stuck was held by Ames -'in trust" for the investors in many instances, and that the investors did not generally pav cash down for it; nut tuey let bauds until the lated enough to meet the cost price of the shares. This view of the transaction is not controverted by Ames. y.,T i.sstam, in the case of Speak. 1 1 olfax, Mr. Ames says : " I know hi- Mr. olfax wanted to get some stock, aud 1 am pretty confident he has paid mo for it, though it was never transferred to him, nor can I re memkicr having paid over to him any dividends," In these general particu lars, then, the sales of Ames and Mc Comb agree. From bis point of view, Mr. Amen saw uo wrong in disposing of the siK-k among Congressmen. To quote his own language: "I intended nothing that ought to brand me with disgrace." It should lie observed that only in a few particulars do Ames aud M.s oaab di-agree as to the equivalent which the Congressmen rendered for the stock which the received We come next to the exact disposition of stock auioug Congressmen, 'lhe ieu ciled memorandum on the Ames letter, so often referred to, gave the liat of names to which the shares were allotted by Ames. The memorandum was writ ten by McComb while Ames read the names 1 roin his own private memoran da. There is some dispute about this, as Ann- (sisitively denies "dictating names ' to McComb. But McComb loet not pietend that Ames dictated anything, ou the contrary, he leaves the impression that he made the memoran dum furtively and rapidly while Ames was lea line Use list, without suspicion i ug that a copy was lieiug made. Further, MctVmb doclares thai there were some allotment of st-. -k which were not in that list; aud thfse that were there were afterward changed. For instance, he says that certain stuck which he (Mc Comb 1 had solicited for Senator Bayard was afterward .according to Ames giv en to Senator Conkling. There is also some confusion as to several other names am1 there in a decided argument as to mil ri. Senator Wilson's being OIK Hi wlneli liolli agree. As to the I deat) point.- up ii which A mo and MeCotnh j He decide ii.v lake issue Uirther evidence whin must be required. For instance, while) fense man struck him with a id ihat he tired in s,-lf-de- James Brooks was then re-examined 1 and ma lea lengthy statement. The following is the statement of Mr. ; Brooks: Mr. McComb having sworn iu the '. early part of this investigation that I j was the only member of Congress with in bis knowledge to whom had lieen given Credit Mobilier stock to influence or bribe other members, and that fifty shares had thus been given me without consideration, I naturally enough, wheu thus outraged, felt indignant, and de nounced him as a perjurer. Mr. Alley having since sworn that there is not one word of truth iu this part of McComb's fabrication, and this having beep con firmed by fc:eiiator Ames's mony, t ought, perhaps, to let the case rest; and I should let it rest thus but for the jrsisteut efforts here to impair the testimony ot both. The fol lowing letter from the Aeting-Searetary of the Interior shows my first official re lation with that road: Washington, .laiiunry 3D. 1S73. To Hon. L. I'.PoLtud.CtMunnan : S 1 k Hon. James Brooks, of New York, was 'commissioned Government Director of the I'nion Pacific Railroad for a term of one year from the third day of October, 187, and the oath of office filed by him in this department was ta keu by him MaR-h 23d, 1868. 'Signed P. K. fMWEN. AclinK-S)ci-relur . It will thus Is? seen that for nearly six months 1 declined to lake the oath of office. My hesitation aiose mainlv trom me lacl ttial mere was discord in the Board, and while that existed. I did not want to be in it. Wheu this discord was over, in compli ance w ith the promise I had made to act, I took my seat in the Hoard, to the apparent satisfaction of all hitherto dis cordant parties. The sacrifice was something to me, for in this official po sition I could not he a sockholder in the Cnion Pacific railroad, and, if 1 became a stockholder in the Credit Mobilier, through another cortoration, iu another State. I subjected myself to misconstruc tion. Hence I was compelled to re nounce a right to purchase at par, from T. C. lmrant, two hundred shares of Credit Mobilier, a right belonging fo me, as testified by him in lSfi or early iu 1867 before I was a member of Congress, and which did not become valuable until Decem ber, 1W,7. I said, therefore, to Durant, as he has already testified, that as Gov ernment Director, I could not and would not exercise my right to purchase two hundred shares, then above par, but would transfer my right to C. H. Neil son, my sou-in-law, to .whom, as a stock operator, the right would lie valuable. Durant made uo objection save as to the number of shares to lie transferred, and he has stated that he compromised on that by selling to Neilson a hundred shares w ith a few Union Pacific bunds ill addition and a certain uumlier of shares of I'niou Pacific stock which were immediately entered upon the books, as shown by the records, in Neilson's owp name. I tint not then receive, aud have never since received, one cent of profit from the transaction in my own or any other name. I have never receipted for nor had any dividend or allotment in any form from any shares entered on the books iu Neilson's name, either di rectly or indirectlv. I did not give Neilson the money to purchase the stock, deeming it wiser to make him pay tne than to give it la him. I ad vanced the purchase money as a loan, as he testified, and only as a loan, and held him responsible for its payment as soon a he could hence; probably, as Ames tes tilies, although I have entirely forgot ten the transaction, I acted for Neilson in paying Durant, in part three thou sand dollars by a draft, to lie deducted from a loan due me January M bv Durant, and iu part seven thousand dollars by check. If there lie any error or wrong in so public and natural an act, T am incapable of seeing it. If I hail been plotting for concealment, as insinuated, it certainly should not have given my right to purchase to a son-in-law, but to some dummy ; to some Juo. Doe or Richard lioe, whoso con nection Wy marriage could not lie tracedto me iu all the books of the great national cororatiou . The fifty additional shares purchased by Neilson himself, on or about February ii, 1S68, were necessarily sold to him by virtue of my agreement with Durant, and upon a statement of the tact to the company it was couceded that fifty shares lielonged to him iqion his paying their par value, with interest from July 1, IMiT. I never poke to Alley nor he" to me, upon this subject, as sworn by McComb; our 10- lations were never confidential, and he never gave me these flftv nor auv other shares, with or without considera tion, either for mvself or to bribe Dem ocratic members in Congress now. In setting torth this statement of facts, I do not w ish, apologetically, to convey the idea that I declined the ownership of the ( 'redit Mobilier stock because I was a member of Cougress, for if 1 had uot been named a Government Director I should probably have been the owner of a large amount of that stock to this day. I have-as much right to own paper stock as live stock as sheep, or spin dles, or lead and iron mine, or bai ley, or ti mlier, or foundries with two or three thousand tariffed articlts largely indorsed by Congressional legislation, and no constitutional quorum can ever be got in either House of Cougress if the members are to own no species of stock, alive or de id, agricultural, manufactur ing or commercial, wheu their interests are to lie legislated upon. From April 6, lti, to March 4, 1867, I was not in Congress, aud during that time, as a pri vate citizen, whenever I had leisure, I exerted all the influence tongue or pen could give me to interest capitalists in the building of the Pacific road; bor rowing money for it, and loaning it (money at great risks, too, which led 1 when I was not a member of Congress, as Durant shows) to his promising me the right to purchase some of his shares iu the Credit Mobilier; and what he states I here reiterate, that the business transactions between us were in no way intended to influence Congress or legis lation. They were natural business transactions between man and niu. Now 1 have only to add that I have uover lieen asked to give, nor have I giv en a vote in Congress that was unjust to the oi eminent, or for profit to the Union Pax ifie road; nor have I, as charged by McComb, asked Democratic members of Congress to vote for the road, and I do not remember even to have spoken to any Democratic mem ber upon any legislation relating to the road. AH I have done was, when not a member of Congress, to accept an offer Durant made to sell me at par certain shares of Credit Mobilier stock, and wheu not a Government Director of the road to transfer to Neilson the offer made me wheirUot a Congressman. If this 1 a wrong, morally, socially, politically or constitutionally, it is not written in any code I have ever read or heard of. Referring to his ex planation iu the case of Brooks, he con fessed himself fifty snares, and said nothing about the hundred shares, as Met omb bad charged specifically; that all they had given him were those shares; besides, he had consumed the hour allowed him, and could not say all he wanted to. Witness felt enough interest iu the matter, after he became Government , Director, to see that bis son-in-law should get his fiftv shares, which he wai eu- i titled to. The first impulse of witness ,J when he becomea Government Director in the road, was to sell all the ( redit Mobilier stock be held and pock et the proceeds, hut subsequently he thought he could transfer it to his son-in-law. Mr. Niblack Well, to lie frank with you, Mr. Brooks, I think it would have been better in you to have retained the stock iu your name thau to transfer it thus to your son-in-law. Mr. Brooks I think not. Let me ask you, Mr. Niblack, was it right for me to hold Government boudsduring the war ." Mr. Niblack Oh, well, I don't want to go into that subject. It is ar gued that we should hold nothing which can be affected by legislation. As to myself, I have always made it a loint never to hold any kind of stock. Mr. Brooks Oh, well, if we are to own nothing in this world I fear the Democratic party will never get auy votes. Laughter. What would you have done, Mr. Niblock, had you owned a valuable right that Mr. Niblack Well. I don't know; I never was so fortunate. Mr. Brooks Well, I supiiose I have done my share in abasing people in newsiiapers, and I am getting abused now. The newspapers hurt themselves, however, by circulating ' ' -se scandals, as they forfeit that respect which they should maintain. 1 have tu-jney and must invest it. I never let my money lay idle; if I should only get two per cent, a year I would invest. I invested in United States stocks duriug the war. Some people thought it patriotic; I did not, but did it as an investment. By Senator McCrary Never received anything, from Nelson growing out of the Credit Mobilier transaction, except ten thousand dollars which he advanced him. Senator Patterson again apieared vol untarily before the Committee. He said the only legitimate inquiry before the Committee was whether the legisla tive action had been improperly influ enced; what property, or how much he might purchase, was uot open to legisla tive investigation. His object in coming oeioro tne Lommiuee was to explain more fully a point ou which he differed from Ames's present position. Having some money to invest. I placed it in the hands of Amos, without thought that this Credit Mobilier stock, represented as so profitable, was in the market, and with no understanding en my part certainly that he was to secure for me stock or bonds in the Union Pacific Railroad and dispose of this sum 111 sucn lime and way as ho could realize most for them t -. w . cm one occasion 1 nave no recollection of anv other, he paid me some money, which I then and now be lieve came from the sale of stock or bond- w hich he had purchased and hel ior me. . day or two since tie came to my room and said he had again been called before this eommittee.and showed me tor tne nrst time a memorandum 111 which ne nau credited me with thirty shares of stock in Credit Mobilier and two dividends on the same, supposing I was to receive stock or noting, or their proceeds, and nevei h nving received anything else. I (bought I had got what I paid for, but -Ames, u seems not wishing mo to suf fer from my ignorance of the mysteries of the Pacific railroad management, bad put me oown ior stock in tn Credit Mo bilier. and assigned me what I received as dividends on the same. So far as thi- investigation is concerned, it is a matter of indifference to me whether his understanding or mine is correct, for in either case it was simply an invest ment ror profit, and had no connection, in thought or act, with legislation, but, 11 ne is rigin, someooiiy owes me a tew thousand dollars, which, if they will have the goodness to cash, I shall find my venture more profitable than I had any reason to expect. man, and there was no chance of elect ing a Democrat. It was the general talk in Topeka that money was being used, but he knew nothing of any im proper inducements being accepted or offered for votes. On the day when the first vote was taken, he intro duced a resolution directing the Speaker to administer to members an oath that (their) votes had not been, and would not be, influenced by any money consideration. The resolution was adopted, and about two-thirds of the members took it. One of the argu ments which was used against the aJoption of his resolution was, members had taken an oath when they took their seats, and that was " swear enough." The votes of those who refused to take the oath were scattering. He intro duced the resolution because of the general rumors of corruption that prevailed. 278.

Senator Essex testified that a stranger came 10 nun wune ne was in one ot the caucuses, aud. alter a little conversation left on his desk a paper upon which was written ""tnree hundred dollars,"' w hich tvssex construed to mean a bribe to vote for Mogv. Mr. Wade, from Scott county, testi fied that be bad been told that anv member could have his excuses during me wiuicr pant, uy vouug ior ijorns. Mr. Molleucott, of St. Louis, testified that M. C. Smith informed him previ ous lo the caucus, that there would be no caucus nominee, in which case there would be a chance for him Molleucott 1 to make a thousand or fifteen hundred dollars. He pointed out two members of the House who then had two hundred dollars iu their pockets and would get three hundred more after the caucus, that they were to vote for Bogy, and that the money was to be used to elect Bogy. Mr. Smith further stated that the roll was kept in Bogy's room, and every man who accepted the proposition had to sign the roll and reoeive his money. Witness understood from the interview with Smith that Bogy furnished the money, and that as manv votes as could he got, both Republican and Democratic, were 10 oe oougni ior Bogy. With the exception of the testimony of 1 ..inkers, regarding the changing of large bank hills Into small drafts aud notes, ail evidence so far has been hear say, or second-hand. Bankers think that about fifteen thousand dollars were in circulation during the contest. THE CALDWELL. JCLE4TIOS FRAVD. Washington, January 21.

The question to Le determined is: Does a marriage in Mississippi protect persons who live together in this State in violation of the act of the General Assembly of June 27, 1870? (This act makes the offense considered punishable by imprisonment in the State prison .J For the defendant the case of Morgan vs. McGee, t Hum., is relied on. That case only decides that marriages solemnized according to the law and usages of the country where made, are good in Tennessee. It was the manner and form of marriage, and not the capacity of the parties to contract the marriage, which was passed upon by the court delivering the opinion. The reason for such rule is readily seen. Each State has its peculiar regulation, some more, some less strict and fortn&i The general rule resulting from all this, that a marriage, good in the place where made after the forms and usages of that place should be good everywhere, is tutended to prevent a mischief that would otherwise grow out of a difference of formal and local regulations. For instance, iu some of the States a license is uot absolutely uecessary. Aow if in one of such States a marriage is solemnized without license, being good there, it is good in Tennessee where a license is uecessary, aud where a marrying and living togethei without license would subject the parties to in dictment for lewdness. A respect for and recognition by each State, in fact nation, ot me legal ceremouial of mar riage in another is all that is meant or intended by the rule. All standard authors declare that the rule comes not et conutati, but c.r achilojwstitivt. Were it otherwise, each State would lie de pendeut upon the concurring legislation and adjudication of every other for the permanency and efficacy of its own Each State is sovereign a government witntn, and of itself, with the inherent and essential right to deelare and main tain its own oliticaI economy for the good 01 its citizens, and cannot be sub jected to a recognition of a fact or act contravening its public policy and against good morals as lawful lcause it was made or existed in a State having no prohibition against it, or even per mitting it. Extending the ride to the width asked for by defendant, and we migfit have iu Tennessee the father liv ing with the daughter, the son with the mother, the brother with the sister, in lawful wed lock, because they had formed such re lations in a .-state or country where they were not prohibited. The Turk or Ma homedan. with his numerous wives, may establish his harem at the door of the Capitol, and we are without reme dy ; yet none of these are more revolt in;;, more to lie avoided or more unnat ural than the case before us.
