Fkoh lhi Washington correspondent of the Cincinnati Efjuirtr, we learn that some days ago Garfield wrote a letter to Kwett, of the Pittsburg, Pennsylvania, district, stating that he waa a candidate tor the ujeaker.ship; that he was the choice of President H.iyes, and that it was among the possibilities to or ganize the house on a Republican basis; that he indors.il th io!i'-y of Hayes as to south ern pacification and civil service reform, and ie should be pleased to have Kwett 's vote. "J'he Litter replied in due course of mail, stating that inasmuch as the President i de sirous to liave the house organized in a man ner that will not handicap him in the admin istration of his southern policy, he shall cast his rote for the speakership for Samu .l J.

Vtrion Theories The Coroner Thinks that Dean Knows More than he in Willing to Tell Hi Son's Testimony. His Clerk, Ilrown, States Positively that he is .Not in any Sense Responsible for the Wounds on the Younsrer Jewett's llody. Nf.w Yoke, April 7. Charles II. Jewett called, last night, at the resilience of Joseph A. iJean. and informed Nicholas 1.. Roose velt, a relative of the latter, that Orville 1. Jewett had undoubtedly committed suicirle. The fact was communicated to CharlcM H. Jewett by Char leu Tamtor, managing clerk, who told him, on Tuesday af ternoon, that the moment the explosion occurred, he (Tain tor) was in the middle ofhee, in full view of the private cilice. He heard George W. Jewett call him, and he immediately entered the rxm, and when the smoke had partially cleared, taw rvi!!e I . Jewett lying on the iiody of George V. Jewett. Orville held a Sharpe's pistol to his breast, and fired four shots in rapid suicession. He then rolled from oil" the body of his uncle, and lay wnth intr on the tl'Sjr near it. Taintor then ran down stairs, and raise, 1 a cry of alarm, and subsequently went to Staten Island to ac quaint the elder Jcwelt's family. Another conference at the coroner oKice to consider the manner in which Orville I). Jewett came to his death was held to-day. Thecoroner and his deputies decided that the wounds received by Orville I . Jewett were inflicted by some one else, and that the report circulated that he him-elf fired the weapon which inflicted the wounds was impossible, as the course of the bullets and the position in which the person must have stood to re ceive them, precluded the oss.sibil"ty of his inflicting them with his own hi-Jids. "There is no doubt,'' said the coroner, "th t Mr. Dean knows more than be will tell." The coroner also said that M r. beau was a good man to watch, and that he should not be per mitted to leave his house as sxoii as he was able to leave. The house will, in all proba bility, be placed ander surveillance. The jKilice all adhere to the same theory, that the wounds received by t irville Jewett cruld not have been inflicted by himself and, in their opinion, the mystery will soon be unraveled. Mr. L'ean is not able to sit up, but he is making favorable progress toward recovery. In regard to the thtory that Mr. Dean him self fired some of the bhots which proved fa tal to Orville Jewett, his son said that in his father's present condition it had been deemed advisable to keep him in ignorance of the fact that such a theory had been broached. He said that he never knew his 1'ather to have a pistol of any kind in his possession, and that he was a man very unlikely to ever carry one, as he was not only unfamiliar with fite-arms, but he had a positive aversion for them. Young .Mr. Ian also said that he did not think it singular that Mr. Taiiitor's account had not been made public sooner, in asmuch as the latter had not left Staten Is land, where he had lived with his father-in-law since the day of the fatal event; he said, however, that his father's memory of the terrible affair was no clearer than before, and the latter was still unable to remember even the relative positions occupied by per sons in the office at the time of the explosion. Robert Ilrown, shipping-clerk, said to a Post reporter that at the time of the explo sion he was on the first floor of the establish ment; he ran into the street, saw the office window broken anil Bmoke issuing from it, and then ran back to go up stairs, where he met another clerk and also Air. Dean. He continued on his way up stairs, and was joined by the hreiaen. Before reaching the bead of the stairs he heard a second report, which is lR-lieved to have been from the dis charge of a large revolver. This makes him certain that this weapon could not have b'.'en fired by Mr. Dean, who was then at the bot tom of the stairs. When Mr. Rrown reached the back office he saw George W. Jawett iy- uig on ins ua'.'K wun ms ieei towaiu me grate, and Orville D. Jewett, also on his back, with his shoulder resting on his uncle's breast. both wee writhing with pain. Ihown also says that ten or twelve days lje fore the explosion Orville Jewett called him one side and said privately, in an impulsive manner, that, he wished him to take charge ot his desk and see that it was not moved, as there was sometliing in it which might break in consequence. Ilrown warned all the Krter8 not to touch Jewett's desk. This statement, it is thought, may throw light on the question as to the length of time that irville D. Jewett had the hand-grenade in his possession. The offices of what was the firm of John Jewett A: Co., Front street and Hurling slip, are closed to-day. The extensive factory at Port RichmonfT is silent, and ovi r the entire town hangs a Sabbath stdlnes unmistakably funereal in its character. All the nags in the town and on the ferryboats are at half-mast, and the houses of the Port are draped in black and white, for on this day takes place the funeral of the late senior member of the firm, whose life was trasically ended. The funeral services of the late George W, Jewett, one of the victims of the Hurling slip tragedy, took place to-day at the family resi dence, Staten Island, and the body will be interred to-morrow at Greenwood cemetery, where also will be placed the remains of Or ville D. Jewett, ami at the same time. LADIES' CHRISTIAN' ASSOCIATION.

We ho,d that all christian work done in the church r out of the church should be work 1' t Christ, and not for the church. Do not misunderstand us. The church, as an or g.wiation, is the great christian heart or center that sends powei through all the ram ifications of the great body of believers, but not to be turned back on itself, but to revivify the great world, in which they are com manaed "to go and compel them to come in." Christ says to believers, "Ye are the salt of the earth," "Ye are the light of the world" not of yourselves and when a body of christians sit down to take care of them selves, you may expect spiritual leanness. MEXICO. The Keartlon axainxt IHa has Met lo in Karnent, and Another Revolu tion id Certain. Matamokas, ri'a New Orleans, April 7. The Mexican war steamer Libertad, arrived at the mouth of the Rio Grande yesterday with General Rasilio Garza, commissioned by the supreme government to take General Cortina to the City of Mexico. General Canales, wfho commands this city, and who is governor of the t-tate of Tamaulipas, has not yet determined to surrender Cortina to the general government, as he is held under sentence of death under the State laws. Con siderable excitement has been created by the demand of the general government for the delivery of Cortina, and it is believed that if Genera! Canales persists in refusing to sur render him it will precipitate a conflict be tween the State and Federal authorities. The Libertad brings news from the City of Mexico to the twenty-ninth ultimo. The day previ ous George Ainslie was arrested on the rail road cars between the City of Mexico and Vera Cruz with important documents relating to a conspiracy in favor of the restoration of Lerdo de Tejada as president, in consequence of which Senator Yiilada," General Fueros, General Regules y Hernandez, together with several other prominent persons, were arrested and imprisoned in the castle of San Juan de I'lua. The JCepublican also an nounces that several pronnnciamentos had oc curred in the interior of the country against General Diaz, among others Scnor Olvera, on thenoiuitains of Overetiro. The Carro del Xorle. of this city, to-day, commenting on the news brought by the Libertad, says that the reaction against Diaz has set in in ear nest, and that the whole country will soon be involved in another revolution. F.DIMlOItO I1KY. A Ore at Rasral Canslit at I.att Having Hold Xrw York, he Tried it On in I'biladeiphia. and Sold liimweir Cheap. New Y'okk, April 7. Another Edinboro Bey, purporting to lie an agent of the Turk ish government, has been the rounds of sev eral large mercantile houses here and in i neighboring cities. About two weeks ago the newspapers announced tliat tne agent re ferred to wanted proposals from the manu facturers at Pat rson for fifty locomotives for his government. About the same time, the market reports had it that fifty tons of buffalo hair had Ijeen sold to make coarse urmy blankets, as was supposed, for Turkey. Meanwhile, the bogus agent was busy in Philadelphia, where he invited proposals for two hundred thousand pairs of army shoes and one hundred thousand saber bayonets; also, tents, knapsacks, and other military stores. As part of the dodge, a party went around among the shipping houses to charter a steamer for Constantinople, and some per sons were so far imposed upon, as to go to much trouble on his account. At last sus picion " became aroused, when the so-called agent attempted, without success, to borrow one hundred dollars from, a bayonet man in Philadelphia. Moreover, it was remarked by others in the trade that his blankets could not be made in competition with the wool felt blankets used by the Turkish army, which are the cheapest known. The Turkish minister at Washington, also the Turkish consul and others, knew nothing of the agent, and pronounced him an unmitigated fraud. It is telieved that some of the victims lost money. XEW YORK. Kedurtion of Prieen of the Wewtern 1 oion Telesraph Company!. -Johu'H nild Children's fold MrandaL New Yohk, April 7. President Orion, of the estern L nion telegraph company, said to a reporter, who was inquiring about a prospeebve cutting of rates, that his company was no: a public lieneht society. It purported doing a fair legitimate business. On Mon day next the rates would be lowered to meet the reduction ot the Atlantic and racihc. After some comments on the published re ports of the competing line, Mr. Orton said that it is at present losing a thousand dol lars a day. The Western LTnion's prices are put down only to competing points, and the losses consequent on these considerable re ductions he estimated to be about twenty-five per cent of I hose of the Atlantic and Pacific company. The commission of accounts, which has been endeavoring to investigate the financial affairs of St. John's guild, reports that no uooKs nave ueen Kept tor in ree years, anu uie moneys received have been deposited to the private bank account of one of the managers.

A fitory not Borne Out by Cireui HtaneeH Froliaule Horrible Butch ery at Mea for .Money. Boston, April 7. The Herald will pub lish to-morrow to the effect that there are grare suspicions that Wru. M'Guire, the sole survivor of the brig Roanoke, did not tell a true story, llis statements to the captain of the schooner which rescued him were contra; dictory, and gave rise to suspicions that the crew mutinied and perhaps murdered the cap tain, his followers, and also the passengers, and thit the vessel became unmanageable after they yot jo,;se?sion. It does not seem consistent that the pa-ssengers vould have deliberately drowned themselves while there was the least hope of leing saved. In the safe, which was locked up in the captain's tabin. were lift v thousand dollars in gold a sufficient incentive lor uprising of the crew It is surmised that the crew drank freely of lager-beer, and while drunk went below to get the onteiits ot the safe, and had a tight with the captain and the sailors who remained faithful.

The I'residential Commission Taking Soundings or the Political Chan nels Committees of Various ltodies, Social and Political, Aiding the Work. . Fixed-op PaiHT In the Interest or Kellogg, Packard Co. The .Inter view with Judge Hunter, the Renegade Etc. New Orleans, April 7. According to an appointment made on Friday night the joint committee from the Democratic legislature waited upon the Presidential commission Saturday morning at the parlor in the St. Charles hotel. The consultation lasted two hours. It was secret, and nothing was gleaned further than the fact that the mem bers ot the commission were propunding nu merous questions as to the state of atfairs. The committee made a detailed verbal state ment of the tt tit us of the government, giving the number of parishes and officials that had acknowledged the Nicholls government, and will, at a future interview, present document ary facts. The commission will, at an early day next week, visit the legislature and vari ous State officers. When the Democratic committee retired, Mr. Packard's supreme court judges were ad mitted to the parlor and began their argu ment. Uhief-Jussice Luduling and Associate Justices King and Leonard, of the K"rllocrg supreme court, had a lengthy interview with the commissioners, and laid before them an elaborate printed brief, showing their title to the office, irrespective of the question us to whether Packard or Nicholls was the rightful governor. At three o'clock, District Judges Marks, Cole and Hunter, of the fourth, fifth and ninth judicial districts of the State, each elected on the Republican ticket, hail a long interview with the commission, and em phatically declared the sentiment of their districta to be in favor of the Packard gov ernment. These districts embrace eleven parishes, with a total population of one hun dred and tliirty thousand six hundred and ninety-four. An exciting interlude in the in terview was the cross examination of Judge R. A. Huater, who was asked "who did vou vote for for governor?" "Nicholl's." "Who did you vote for for President?" "Tilden'' "How long have you been a Democrat?" "All my life; I was born a Democrat, right in this State, and expect to die a Democrat. " "Why do you now desert the Democratic party and support Mr. Packard?" ' IJecause the Democratic party has left me, and does not protect the rights of citizens, but advo cates murder, and 1 do not approve of mur der; and because I believe Packard was squarely elected, and a majority of the white people of my district Rapieds, Grant and Vernon parishes prefer him for governor." General Harlan had a long private interview with Governor Packard in the evening, the DurDort of which has not transD:red. Lieu tenant-Governor Wiltz, the president of the senate, and Hon. Louis Bush, speaker of the Nicholls house, with the members of that as sembly, presented an invitation to Hon. S. S. Cox to address them. Mr. Cox replied that he would be glad to do so, but in the sensi tive condition of the public mind here, which a breath might disturb, he preferred not to discuss public matters. As he believed the affairs of Louisiana can be settled by her own people, he declined to speak. The corre spondence waa complimentary to Mr. Cox, and regret is expressed at his declination. At five o'clock the members of the Nicholls supreme court, by invitation, called on the commission, but the consultation was entirely informal. STATE MEDICAL SOCIETY.

The following report was made by the com mittee appointed last year to investigate the Rutherford snake case: "At the last meeting of this society, the undersigned, having been constituted a committee to reconsider the case of a snake said to have been extracted from the throat of a woman in Kutberlora county, and reported on by S. XI. Burger, M.D., a member of this society, beg leave to state to this meeting that their endeavors to collect additional tacts relating to this particularcase have leen unsuccessful, while, at the same time, they found no one willing to impeach the veracity ot tne reporter; anu iney, mere fore, submit the following considerations for the adoption of the society: First That according to the rules of a sound philosophy it is not admissible to lay down the line of the possible in natural phe nomena by a priori reasoning. Second That we know of no yalid reason why a living reptile or many of the lower forms of animal life could not exist a certain time in the human stomach. Third That instances are on record, ap- Earcntly veracious, where such living animals ave been the occupants of the stomach ot man for days and month.. Fourth That we are bound to accept the statements of Dr. Burger regarding what he saw and believed until positive testimony to the contrary is adduced. Fifth That the reception of the report of this case by the society does not commit it to apy new or erroneous theories in medicine, and that the whole subject belongs rather to the domain of the natural sciences than to the department of medicine proper. Herewith is presented to the society the statement of Dr. J. M". Berger himself, and also several instances of living substances f6und in the stomach and bowels. All of which is respectfully submitted. J. B. BnsT, M D. W. K. BOWLlNi. 51. I). J. B. LlSDsLKY, M. I. K. D. WLSriETT, M. U. The report was received and referred to the committee on publications.

In reply to addresses of the friends of edu cation, yesterday, President Hayes said he acknowledged the importance of genenil ed ucation, and that he appreciated the difficul ties in the way of establishing a general school system where none existed. It should be a State institution, but the general gov ernment should render all the aid it could legally. Nothing gave him more pleasure than to contribute, as far as in his power, to further-and elevate the blessings of educa tion in the south, where they had been put back by war, the loss of school funds, and a general derangement of their finances. He believed there was no greater guarantee for the advancement and preservation of the country thanfthe intelligence of her people. The subject would receive his attention.

A circular letter has been addressed to all United States district attorneys, by the attorney-general, in which he says he finds the appropriation for the expenses of United States courts for the fiscal year rapidly ap proaching exhaustion, and that congress De nied all application for an increased sum to bear these expenses. The duty is thus forced upon the officers of this department to re trench all possible expenses. To a great ex tent the attorneys of the United States are responsible for expenses incurred, and natu rally the call is made upon them to stop ail expenses that cau with security be stopped.

Inauguration of the Idea of I'reventi ve Medicine in Tennessee The People Must be Educated to a Knowl edge of the Necessity for Public Hygiene. Nashville American, Weduesday. The newly appointed State board of hea'th met yesterday in the office of the superinte: d ent of public instruction. Colonel Tronsd.de having tendered it for that purpose. Ail ihe members, were present, as follows: Drs. J. D. riunkett, R. B. Maury, E. IT. Wright, J. M. Satford. and T. A. Atchisoi . Dr. Plunkett, on calling the board to oiver, addressed it as follows: Henti.kmkn At the nesiuest of the governor of our commonwealth. I have called you to meet at this time tor tbo putikms of promptly completing the organization of "the istate board of health of the State of Tennessee," and upon entering upon the duties pertaining thereto. To be thus charged with Inaugurating the idea of "preventive medicine' in Tennessee. Is to lie assigned a position which I con sider it Is no exaggeration to say. Is second to none In the State, and in proisirtion as we appreciate the dignity and iniortaiiee of our jiosltloiis and the great responsibility attaching thereto. In that same degree wlil llie exalted aims andends contemplated in the establishment of such a board be realized. The Held which legitimately falls under the Jurisdic tion of such an organization Is an exceedingly com prehensive one. as In the language of the law w hich gives us existence, "the State tward of health shall have the general suiiervlslon of the interests of health ami life of the citizens of the state." and with us ft will also lie found an esiiecially diltlcult Held to till proiierly. arising principally from the crude legislation, or rather, I should say, the ab sence almost entirely of any legislation to bs found upon our statute books touching this department prominent among which I iiiaycitetheabsenceol any law looking to the proer collection and preserva tion of social and vital statistics in the Slate. As these statistics are always necessary to the success ful study of sanitary science, it liecomes apparent that some means must bedelsed by w hich this great need can In some manner lie supplied. To that end 1 would suggest that we secure at as early a day as is possible the services of one or more leading prac titioners of medicine in encli cauiity of the State.who shall hold the oiliclal relationship to this board of correspondent, through whom he may obtain regu l.irlv information of a statistical or other character either of their immediate neighborhoods or respect ive counties. As lids lioard Is the result of patient and persistent eHurf on the part of the medical pro fession of Tennessee, as expressed through their State society. Is It not eminently proiier and just that we should now, in turn, look to them. Indi vidually and cnllectivciy. lor such assistance as the board may reyulre iu the proper discharge of its duties? For will It not le the carefully recorded facts, as they occur In the unify routine of each physician's home duties, which shall constitute, when consolidated, the reliable data upon which the board will found llie ih iMicuons and suggestions of their reiHirts? Yes. It is principally upon the faithful and cordial co operation of medical men throughout the state thai the success of this all-important and highly lienevoient cnterpiise will de lend. The observance of sanitary rules In some manner by the human family, though often crude and meagre, is a kind of Instinct, and while exist ing from the beginning, yet those laws were not formulated until they were made a part of that re ligious di.siiensatloi. promulgated by the inspired law-giver of Israel, and since it is, therefore, not a new or unknown science which we are called upon to announce, but rather a neglected one that we are exiected to elaborate, consequently It becomes our first great duty to revive among the people the knowledge of hygiene -to edfteate them In resiiect to "the nature and causation of disease, and esiie cially regarding the means for its prevention " The ijuery naturally arises, how can these ends be best and most speedily attained? In answer, the follow ing suggest themselves to my mind: 1. By having our common schools and other Insti tutions of learning throughout the State Incorporate Into their resectlve curricula, such works upon physiology .mil public hygiene as tills board may approve. 2. By the publication of short, pithy addresses on various seclal subjects connected with public hy giene, such as ventilation, and building and location of houses; on various well known diseases capable of luirtial or entire prevention um)ii the knowledge of causes being given. :!. By holding meetings in various parts of the State iiniler uuliiatice of members of the lioarti or some local ph. slclan siiecially selected, for discus sions on the subject-meetings analogous to those now- held on education, agriculture, eto. Such meet ings properly conducted would not only attract the attention, but greatly Interest the public in this mat ter. It has been wisely said that "the sanitary care of its citizens is the Prt duty of the Stare, hence It Is tiatiiyingto sve Tennessee thus promptly wheel Into line to lYnitintiiiii of that advanced sentfmeiitwhich regards public sanitation as the greatest and liest gbr a government cAu bestow upon Its people. But eight ears ago the first State board of health was organized I" Ameriea;to-dny we number the twelfth, hence it requires no prophet to predict that the day Is nigh at hand when similar organizations will ex ist from Maine to Texas. and from Florida to Alaska, and thus as a Wind of noble, devoted philanthro pists, they will move forward iu harmonious, ea-n-est, faithful elfort in this cause to the achievement ot victories of far grander proiiortions, and of broader and fore vital interests to mankind than any that have or may be attained in medicine as a strictly healing art. In the language of one of the leading men of the nation, "the patient, peaceful worker who shall call forth and so marshal facts and generalize the scattered forces of knowl edge as to iead to a victory over any one of the promi nent causes of death which now annually destroy our citizens by hundreds or by thousands, will be ac corded u higher promise of humanity and be assigned a higher position iu the temple of fame than the most successful military chieftain the world lias ever seen." Allow me, then, gentlemen, in con elusion, to bespeak for each member of this board In the discharge of his duties that free exeicise of Industry, perseverance and judgment which knows no failure, ami as a consequence this board will be come a real blessing to bur State, not only so for the present, but also to Its citizens !n all future time, I therefore welcome you to this self-sacriliciug and sublime work.

Wright, by the Hritish gunboat Rocket, the following press dispatch hits been received from Victoria: "The most sorrowful page in the story of the wreck of the G. S. Wright, in 171, remains to be written. The Colonist has a few additional particulars of the mas sacre of a portion of her pa-s.-engers and crew by the Indians, and the destruction of an Indian village. The olficers learned enough to convince them that several shipw-r.-cked persons got ashore and were murdered by the i.atives. llie story , to the purport that a number ot white men came ashore in a lxiat lhey had with them many papers, ;md a large sum of money in gold and silver. They bargained w.t'i a party of Kinegut Indians, who were bound to Victoria, to take them to Port Hupert, lor seven dollars each. The white men were without arms, and when night came on, and all the men were asleep, the Indians murdered them and threw their bodies into the sea, after stripping them of everything of value. The money in the bag was divided by the savages, who came on to Victoria and spent the coin. An Indian woman ays she picked up the head of a white m:in on the beach at Cape Caution a few months alter the wreck, and was told to put it down again an 1 suy nothing about it. l'lie officers found no property belonging to the Wiiglif. except portions of the wreck which probably oriifi.-d ashore. With respect to the destruction of the village, Sergeant Bloom field, with thrve others from the Rocket, went ashore and demanded (our men who were suspect. d of complicity in the murders, when the Indians came out armed and refused to give up the men. The party then secured two of the suspected savages and made for the boat, when they were fired on. but got back to the ship safely. Captain Harris then gave the tribe six hours in which to surrender the other two men. After the lapse of the six hours, he extended the time tliree hours longer. He then fired blank cartridges, and the Indians ran away. The village was then shelled and afterward burned. The two men were secured, but no one was killed." Fine Stationery.

At the session of the New England (Methodist) conference to-day, a special commission, to which was referred the resolution protesting against the Presi dent's policy, reported tne following substi tute therefor, which was unanimously adopted : "First That the warm practical sympathy of this conference for the oppressed of our land is a history of too long standing and too outspoken to need any re-affirmation by us at the present time: and now that legalized slavery has leen forever abolished in this country, we feel equally des-irous that they who, having been victims of that oppression, were deprived of their civil rights and means for intellectual and moral culture, may have secured to them all the rights and privileges that their changed relation to the country, and their consequently increased responsibil ity so imperatively demand for them. "Second That we are glad to recognize in the inaugural address of our present chief magistrate, and in other words and acts of his, a clearly-defined purpose on his part so to administer the government of the.se United States as to secure to all classes of our citi zens the full and free exercise of all their rights and privileges, and we p edge to him, in the execution of this purpose, our hearty sympathy and support, and we will earnestly pray that God may give to him and his ad visers wisdom to guide them in their import ant and difficult work, and we sincerely hope that our too-long disturbed country may again enjoy an era of good feeling, p--ace and prosiierity." llie adoption of the substitute reported was received with applause.
