Grav. a clerk in the attornev sren- eraPs cfllco. He testified that B. G.

Gray went to Senator Carpenter, who recommended Daniels, aud the appointment was pro cured, but Daniels never paid him the thousand dollars. First-Lieutenant Robert G. Carter, Fourth cavalry, testified that General Reynolds sent to General M'Kenzie fifty or seventy-five thousand busbeto of corn, brought from Adams & Wicks, coi'tractois at San Antonio, but General M'Kenzie, who was commander of the post, refused to receive it, on the ground that it was not fit for issue, and too high in price. General Reynolds ordered him again to take it, when M'Kenzie again refused and had an inspection of the grain. It was found weevel-eaten aud musiy, and, therefore unfit for issue. After M'Kenzie's second protest, Rey nold's made a premptory order and the former was obliged to take tbe grain. M'Kenzie represented that Adams & Wicks were bad men; that they were monopolising the contracts of the de partment, aud that other contractors of fered to furnish gocd earn for fifteen or twenty cents per bushel less. Tbe re eult was that Reynolds preferred charges to General Hallcck against M'Kenzia lor willful and obstinate disobedience of orders, but he was never tried.

SCHENCK. Our Late Minister to the Imperial Conrt of St. James Before the Committee on Foreign Affairs of the House. He Presents a Written Statement of His Connection with the Emma-Mine Scheme, and Denounces Tark and Lyon How he Joined the Company, nud Be came a Director HoV he Bought and Sold his Stock-Ills Expe- - riences as n Dnpe. Washington, March 28 Ex-MInls-ter Schenck appeared before the com mittee on foreign affairs to-day, bring ing with him a satchel filled with pa pers. He privately complained of being weaK, not having fully lecovered from his recent attack of slcknes?. Senator Stewart and other gentlemen connected with Emma-mine transactions were present. Schenck read the following paper: "I desire respectfully to state to the committee, that since my arrival in AVashington I have read the printed tes timony of Jas. K. Lyon and Hiram A. Johnson, on which charges against me appear to b9 founded. The testimony of thcee witnesses has been taken in my absence, and without affording any op portunity for a cross-examination. This evidence is croduced to show that tho sale of the Emma mine by Park, Bax ter and Stewart to the Jiimma company, of London, was a fraud, and that to the consummation of such fraud I know ingly lent the assistance of my name and official position. The charge is a grave one, and I ask for a most full investigation of it. For that purpose, although not invited to appear before the committee. I left London as soon as I learned from the newspapers what ac tion had been taken, and came at once to Washington. I might rest my vin dication upon the simple statement of my own congestion with the transac tion in question, which I propose to make, ftom which it will appear that under the sincere belief in the value of the mine, and the honesty of the sale of it, I bought and piid tar tho shares I hold now, and sustained large pecunia ry loss; but as the committee have re ceived the evidence growing out of the previous history of the mine, and in tended to show that it was of little value, and tbe sale of it was fraudulent, and this evidence has been in, it was such that after their interest had been sold and paid for, some of them pur chased largely of stock at high prices, and also loaned the company large sums of money; that the subsequent failure of the mine was owing to mismanage ment in it3 working; that the mine i?, to-dav. if nrooerly worked, in all probability as valuable as it was claimed or supposed to be; and finally, that, so fur as I know or bjlieve, the parties in England who were concerned in the original purchase have never claimed that any fraud or imposition warprac tioedupon tbem, that claim. having been recentl v act ud bv those Wno have bopght stock, sinoo the alleged Jfailpfe ttPHbe mine, at a nominal pricgAvwrwiii ua ap parent to the ccnatMee that this proof must involve tho interrogation of a con siderable cumber of witnesses; that evidence cannot be presented except through the means universally employed injudicial tribunals, the examination of witnesses by competent counsel ac quainted with the ca9e, subject, of course, to such further questions as any member of the committee may wish to put; that to conduct the inquiry by call ing upon witnesses to examine them selves, or by such desultory and imper fe2t examination as must ha made by a committee not informed, would bo urjust to the party who relies upon the testi mony, and would tend to obscure the truth rather than to elicit it. I have, therefore, to request of the committee that the usual privilege of assistance cf proper counsel may be accorded as well as for cross-examination of witnesses who have testified against me. As for the examination of thoEo whom I desire to produce, should the committee be flessed to accede to this my request, as cannot doubt they will, I will be ready to proceed with the cross-examination of witnesses or on my own statement, as the committee may thins most desira ble. I am, gentlemen, very respect fully, KOBEBT 0. SCHENCBT. ' ..... r t . I 1 Mr. FauiKner said mat mr. Bcneucs mistook. It was tbe intention of the committee to invite him to appear before the committee. Mr. Swann also remarked that tbe committee would give Mr. Schenck every facility with the aid of counsel. Mr. tichencK then gave a circumstan tial account of his connection with the Emma mine. After a few preliminary remarks, Mr. Schenck said that in October, 1871, he met at Edwards hotel, London, Ex Senator Stewart and Mr. Park; it was at the table of William M. Evarts, of New "York; he was not sure whether it was at the table or at a subsequent in terview; titewarc said something about the purpose of his visit to London, and informed him that he and Park were interested in the property of the Emma mine, and were desirous of putting the etock on the English market, and they were then engaged in negotiations; in making this communication to him, either at the dinner table or after, his attention was directed to what Stewart called Little Cottonwood canon on Utah; he represented that when at the land office in Washington, just before he left the United States for London, calling there for the purpose of effecting the promotion of a clerk, the commis sioner exhibited some rich silver ore found in Little Cottonwood cauon. Re verting to his sojourn in London and to bis there having met Park for the first time, and after hearing the object of the visit of Stewart and Park, aud their conversation as to the value of the prop erty, the suggestion wes first made by Steftrt to Schenck that the latter ought to become interested in this valuable property, the finest yet brought out. Schenck answered he had no means to invest, and if be had he would not go into the matter unless he could consid erably add to his income by taking a considerable number of shares. This led to a conversation which in creased his interest on the f ubject. He consented to look into tbe matter to see whether it was worth his while to in vest, provided be could obtain means; he thought Stewart web exceedingly anxious ne should have an opportunity to profit in tbe business; he told him Schenck that Park would assist him, and would give him time if he would take five hundred shares or make the investment of some degree of impor tance. Schenck wished to know the value of the property. They gave him diagrams of the mine and showed him statements of the working operations, the sales of 010 at London, Liverpool and bwanzi, and me balance in bans; they also told him they had a report on the mine from Professor Silllman show ing the value of the mine; a day or two after this conversation they showed him Silliman's report, and Schenck finally mode up his mind to invest in tbe mine if Park would let him have money on time, say for a year. Park having many shares, this matter was settled between Park and himself about the first ot November, when their agreement was reduced j to writing and executed; and it was not true, but utterly false, that an agreement was wiitten or exe cuted at any time prior to (lis date It bore. Schenck then exhibited an agree ment for five hundred shares, Park promising to give Ssbenok two per cent, a month on the shares while they should be held by him, or take them back at par. Snbsequentiy, at Park's request, Schenck agreed to a reduction to one-and-a-half percent. Schsnck had given his note to Park for 10,000 for thirteen months, and Schenck. and the other stockholders received orig-and-a-half per cent, a month. At tha ttime he made this agreement there had been no or ganization of the company, and at the time of its execution there was no sug gestion whatever that he should have anything to do with the management of the company. Afterward, however, Park and Stewart thought Schenck ought to be one of the managers or di rectors of the prop&ed company. Schenck dissented fromjthis, but it was urged that they wanted somebody so journing in Lor don to protect their in terest;. This Ccemod to be a plausible reason, but he still objected, savins he doubted theproprietyofhavinganythlDg to ou wun tn9 management wnue in uia present, activo capacity, unless, he could be satisfied there were precedents of this kind It this should Ua done, another condition would have to be complied with: he must know tbe names bf ail the directors, as he bad thiis far heard the iiame or only one person who had -been asked or agreed to become a di rector, un tbe third or .November the names of such persons were furnished him. He was not acquainted with any of them, but he learned that there were among them member of parliament and other gentlemen in high position. The precedent or the foreign minister noiu ing office in a joint-stock company was found in the minister from Portugal, one of the oldest aud most respected of the diplomatic coins, who was prcsldont of a tramway company in Lisbon, the stock of which was being put on the market. Schenck had nothing to do with the preparation of the prospectus of the Emma company. Smenck said that when he went into the business he did not know that there was such a per son as Albsrt Grant, ho not being ac quainted in stock or nnanc:al cir cles. Schenck attended only two meetings of the board, on the twenty- eighth and thirtieth of November. Hav ing reslgneJin Decmber, heneverwent near the board of directors or company again. He tock no part in the manage ment of the company except giving proxy tovo'e sgainst G .miner's scheme. He related how he aud a friend bought 500 shares in open market ai 30 or 31 a share, and arrang' d with Jay Cooke, M'Culloch & Co. to carry that stock, putting as a margin 2000 gained by the purchase and sala of previous shares. Eventually the s iare3 were sold at 14 per share. In a subsequent part of his statement Ganeral e'ehetek calculated bis losses in such spesnlations at $50, COO or $60,000. Of 600 shares that he origi nally obtained from the Partr, he sold 23 shares to Mrn. Bites, receiving 20 a share. He would have sold the remain ing shares but for tbe f et that he had been so much abused and criticised. This determined h'm to retain his shares, which ho now has. In explain ing the settlement with Park, Schenck said that he give to hira the 500 he received from Mrs. Bates, and itm in addition. There was a credit of 2500 on tbe note which he had given to Park, and which note bad been returned to him. Schenok d d not understand this till his final settlement with Park. It seemed Park made soma arrangement with Grant for the payment or the com mission to him on the shares, and that Grant trave Park a commission on the live hundred shate3 held by Schenck, of which Park said tichenes ought to nave the benefit, as it belonged to him. As 13 the payment of the remaining in debtedness to Park, tho latter, told him he need not trouble himself, as he felt as safe without security as, with it, as he knew it would be paid.- Schenck then related how he paid the remainder of the amount due to Park in stocks, etc. Schenck then alluded to other matters of less importance in conneotion with the Emma mine, and rtad a letter from Sir Roundel Palmer, in reference to a lawsuit disproving the etatements made against him. As to Lyon, some of whose statements he characterized as clumsy lies, he did not know he had ever seen him. The committee adjourned till to-mor row, when Schenck will again appear. KELLOGG. Order from Louisiana's Radical Gov crnor In Regard to the East Baton Ronge Troubles. Tlie District Attorney Ordered to Take Prompt Proceedings Against ttaose Charged with Law lessness. New Oblbans, March 28, Governor Kellogg has addressed an order to the district attorney of Baton Rouge to take prompt proceedings in the courts in re lation to the recent troubles there, and says: " I am definitely informed that Geo. P. Davis, parish judge, and B. T. Beauregard. State and parish tax-collector of Ea3t Baton Rouge, have been driven from the parish in open violation of the law. The parish judge is a con stitutional officer, elected by a large and undisputed majority, and up to this time no charges have been substantiated against him which would affect his right to exercise his office; if he has been guilty of any such charge it is your duty to institute proceedings against hfm be fore the district court, now in session in East Baton Rouge. The tax-collector of the parish was appointed by me some three vests azo: he is a colored man, who, before I appointed him, had served, I believe, creditably as United States collector of internal revenue. If he is a defaulter, or has been derelict in his duty, it is also your province to pro ceed against him before the grand jury now in session in East Baton Rouge. The sheriff of the parish, a constitution al officer elected by a large majority, was some time since driven away and compelled to resign, no offense being al leged against him that I am aware of, except that he was a colored man. I appointed in his place a white man, a native or tne pansn, anu 1 perceive that a committee chosen at tbe meetinc recently held at Baton Rouge, while expressing dissatisfaction with him on account ot his political associa tions, recommended that he bs tolerated for the present, thus dlsctosing the ani mus of those who have thua taken the law Into their own bands to be directed against these appointees because they are Republicans this, too, in a parish admitted to be very largely Republican. I do not intend to permit a resort to mob violence in Jast Baton Rouge or elsewhere in this State. To the end. therefore, that I may exhaust all civil remedies, I request you to immediately Institute proceeeuings Deiore tne district court against all persons known to have been concerned in the recent unlawful disturbance in the city of Baton Rouge, and not only against theee persons, but against any officers of the parish who may have been dere lict in the discharge of their duties. Should the sheriff be called upon to ex ecute any process of the court, you will cause him to be instructed to summon a posse comilalus ot good citizens to exe cute tuis process, no mauer uy wuura resisted: and if met with force, you will cause me to be informed immediately of the fact, l request you runner to call tbe special attention of the district judge to these points, and to move in open court for instructions to the grand jury touching these matters." The Republican State committee of Ohio meets at Columbus to-day. A tel eeram last night from that city says 'The hotels are crowded with delegates. There are six candidates for secretary of state, but 11 is impossible to predict who is tbe favorite. There is a nearly unani mous feeling here in favor of instructing tbe delegates to tbe National conven tion to support Hayes for President, and such a resolution will bo adopted to-mor row by nearly if not quite a unanimous vote, CONGRESS. The Question of Pardon in the Senate General Joseph E. Johnston Pre sented by Simon Cameron. Substitute for Sargent's Bill-The Bill to Establish Judicial Courts The Diplomatic and Appropriation Bills. The House Refuses to Surrender Kil bonrnc Punishment of Recusant Witnesses The Steam Vessel Regulation Bill. Washington. March 23. Senator Edmunds called up the bill for the relief or o. j. onoiion, or Mississippi, or po litical disabilities Imposed by the four teenth amendment to the constitution. Senator Cameron moved to amond by adding tbe name or Jos. xu jotinston, of Georgia a mau who deserved a par don just as much as anybody else. Senator Edmunds said that probably the senator from Pennsylvania was not conversant with the method adopted by the Committee in granting thisrelier. The committee insisted upon it, that persons should make application for pardon, and then if the committee found the applicant deserving, and that he bad behaved himself since tbe war, they considered the matter. He asked Senator Cameron to withdraw his amendment, and when General John ston should make application for pardon it might be taken up. The amendment was withdrawn, and Senator White moved to amend by in serting the name of Walter H Jenifer, of Baltimore. Senator Edmund3 said this name was open to the same objection a3 the other. Senator Whyto said tho gentleman had made application early in the ses tion, and the committee had as yet made no report upon it, and it would stay there until the committee got ready to take it up and consider it, and they would not take it up out of their order; when they reached it in the order of business, they would consider tho gentlsman's cae. The question was tabled and the amendment lost and the bill rassed. Senator Edmunds said the application was with the committeo on judiciary. The finance committeereported a sub stitute for Senator Sirgent's bill relative to silver coin. The substitute provides merely that the silver coin of the United States, except trade dollars, shall be a legal tender, at their nominal value, for any amount not exceeding five dollars in one payment. The bill introduced by Senator Sargent and also by Representative Piper, pro pjsed not only to repeal the legal ten der power of the trade dollar, but to au thorize the coinage of a new silver dol lar and make it legal tender of amounts not exceeding twenty dollars; it was also proposed by their bill to doublo the legal tender power of other silver coin. Senator Freiinghuysen called up sen ate bill 13 to amend the fourteenth sec tion of the act to establish judicial courts of the United State:, approved Haptem ber 24, 1780. A debate ensued, but the morning hour expiring, the bill went over, and tho chair laid before tho oenate the con sular and diplomatic bill as in regular order. The senate then proceeded to the consideration of the diplomatic bill, the question recurring, in restoring Italy, which was stricken out by the house, and on a nay and yea vote it was re stored. The next amendment on re storing several posts which had been stricken out by tbe house w&3 taken up, Senator Sargent explaining that in these amendments the committee were onlv conforming to the existing laws. Senators Sherman and Hamlin urged the necessity of conforming to the ex isting law, and spoke against the gen eral principle or engrailing new laws upon appropriation bills, pending which tho senate went into executive session, and soon after adjourned. HOUSE. Mr. Dunnell. from the committee on commerce, reported a bill establishing the Sheboygan (Michigan) post 01 de livery. Passed. Mr. ttoimau ouered a resolution nx- ing the compensation of witnesses sum moned before tne nouse committees, ai two dollars per day and mileage of five cents per mile. Referred. Mr. Hoar introduced a oin to permu the importation, free of duty, of books printed in any foreign language. Re ferred. Mr. Gordon offered a resolution direct ing the judiciary committeo to inquire Into the expediency of preventing the use of the United States mails in carry ing lottery advertisements, which was adopted. Tne speaker laid before the house two communications from tbe district-attorney for the District of Columbia, infoim- Ing the house mat tne grano-jury naa found an indictment against Hallet Kilbourne, the recusant witness in the real estate pool investigation, on five counts; and another from Thompson, sargeaat-at-arms, informing the house that the United States marshal fer the District of Columbia had come to him and requested that Hallet Kilbourne be given into his custody, which he (Thompson) had refueed to do, and asu ing for further Instructions from the house. Mr. Glover offered a resolution In structing tbe sergeant-at-arms of the house not to deliver Hallett Kilbourne to the custody of any person or any tribunal until further orders of the house. Adopted. Mr. New Ind. defended the action of the house in tne case of the prisoner Kilbourne, and said that the answer of congress was as great in that respect as the power 01 any court. The question whether the recusant witness should be re-surrendered to tbe judicial authorities of the district, to be tried unoer inejuagmeni, iounu agaius him for refusing to testify, was discussed at considerable length, and Mr. New contended that the penalty provided un der the revised statutes was additional to the punishment for contempt, tbe right to inllict which wa3 inherent and permanent in each house, and should only come into piayafter the adjourn ment of congress; while Mr. Kas3on contended that whereas congress has provided a certain mode of punishing recusant witnesses, each houee was there by divested of its individual power to in flict punishment for contempt. Mr. Uiover, cnairman or tne eeiect committee on real estate and pool, offered a resolution ordering tho ser geant-at-arms tto retain in custody Kilbourne, and not to deliver him up to any other officer or court until further orders of the house. Mr. Hurlbut offered as a substitute a re3olution directing the sergeant-at-arms to deliver Kilbourne to the mar. Bhal of the District of Columbia for trial for misdemeanor. After considerable discussion, tbe house proceeded to vote on the substi tute offered by Mr. Hurlbut, which was rejected; yeas, 32; nays, 92; and Mr. Glover's resolution was adopted with yeas and nays. Mr. Atkins, from the conference com mittee on the bill to supply tbe deficien cy at the Red-Cloud (Sioux) agency, made a report that the house should con cur in the senate amendment increasing the amount from one hundred thousand to one hundred and fifty thousand dol lars. Tbe report was agreed to, and the house then tooK up the bill reported from the committee on commerce, to amend the law for the regulation of s earn vessels, and an explanation of tho bill wa3 made by Mr. Jtcagan The bill went over tl' " ''trdav next.
