l A special supplement of the Official Gaaetfe,
issued this evening, announces that all tele
grams' from Engineer Melvi le, of the lost
Arctic exploring steamer Jeannette, will be
forwarded to their destinations aa promptly
aa possible, and that the most energetic
measures will be taken for the discovery of
the remainder of the crew of the Jeannette
and those left on the ice at the mouth of the
Lena river.
Engineer Melville forwarded by natives
long dispatches to Mr. B nnett, of the New
York Herald. For want of funds they have
been forwarded by post, addressed to Genera
Iwaatiaff. October 29th Nindeman and
Noras, two seamen who were -in boat
No. 1, ' joined their comrades, and
stated that DeLong, Dr. Ambler and
twelve others had reached the northern
mouth of the Lena, and were starving. An
expedition was at once sent ont to rescue
tbem. The survivors lost everything. En
gineer Melville says that money is urgently
needed, and should be sent by telegraph to
Jakutsk. He haa urgently requested that
6000 roubles be tvansmitted immediately to
the Governor of Jakntsk for the return and
care of the shipwrecked men.

London, December 20. A telegram from
St. Petersburg says it is believed in that city
that tbe information bronght by the Governor-General
of Eastern Siberia, of the discov
ery of a steamer in the Arctic ocean refers
to the Jeannette. The dispatch adds that
the crew have suffered loss.
' The finding of the Arctic exploring
steamer Jeannette was reported to the meet
ing of the Royal Geographical Society to-day.
Engineer Melville haa telegraphed to the
American Legation at St Petersburg that
the Jeanettn was surrounded and crushed by
ice on the 23d of June, in latitude 77, north
longitud 157 east, and that the crew left the
vessel in three boats. About filty miles from
the mouth of the Lena they were separated
hy violent winds and thick fogs. - Boat No.
3, commanded by Engineer Melville, ar
rived on the 29th of S.-ptember at the eastern
mouth uf the river Lena, where it was
stopped by blocks of ice, near the village of
Bolenenga, inhabited by idolaters. Koat
No. 1 afterward reached the same spot. The
occupants of these boats state that Lieutenant
DeLiong and Dr. Ambler, with twelve oth
ers, landed at the northern mouth of the
Lena, and that they are in fearful condi
tion and Buffering from frost-bitten limbs.
party of the inhabitants of Bolenenga
started immediately to their assistance.
Nothing ia known of boat No. 2.
A dispatch from St. Petersburg says that
news has reached the government at Jakutsk,
Eastern Siberia, that on the 14th of Septem
ber, three natives of Orelonsv, near Cape
Barhay, 140 verata north oi Cape Bikofi. dis
covered a boat containing eleven men, who
stated that they belonged to the Jeannette,
and bad undergone terrible sutleringa. On
hearing the new the District-Deputy-Gov-ernor,
with doctor and medicines, was imme
diately dispatched to help the shipwrecked
sailors, ana was instructed to bring them to
Jakutsk. The Govenor was also instructed
to do everything in his power to recover the
remainder of the crew, 500 rouble being
given him to defray the first expenses.
The Sta dard says: "Though the Jeannette
has suffered destruction, the Americans have
added additional glory to that they have al
to Irkoutsk, and thence overland to St, Pe
tersburg. They will have no serious diffi
culty in getting home from the month of
the Lena. The journey np the river from
the Arctic sea coast to Yakoutsk will be a
hard one, on account of the great sever
ity of the climate in that part of Siberia,
but it ought not to occupy more
than a month or a month aad a half, and ia
not attended with any danger to men of fair
powers of endurance. It is, in some respects,
an easier journey than that from Nixhni
Rolyma to Yakoutek, which ia performed by
scores of Russian traders every winter.
lhe news received to-day was bronght
from, the mouth of lhe Lena by a special
messenger up the river to Yakoutsk on dog
sledges, thence by a Cossack courier travel
ing day and night, with relays of horses, to
Irkoutsk, the capita, of Eastern Siberia, and
thence by telegraph to St. Petersburg. The
news has been fully two months, and per
haps more, getting from the mouth of the
Lena to Irkoutsk, and it is more than possi
ble that the next information we get will be
that of the arrival of the shipwrecked crew
at Yakoutsk.
The Governor of the sea coast province at
Yakoutaka is a man of cultivation and re
finement, and, if I mistake not, a member of
the Siberian branch of the Imperial Geo
graphical Society.

Lieutenant DeLong ani the survivors of the
crew of the Arctic steamir Jeannette recently
landed, say tbat where the Jeannotta was
lost is 150 miles northeast of the island of
New Siberia, 300 miles from the nearest part
of the Siberian main land, and a little more
than 500 miles from the mouth of the
Lena. It ia probable that Lieutenant
DeLong, after abandoning his ship,
made for the nearest point on the Siberian
coast, passing to the eastward and southward
of New Siberian Island and striking the
mainland between the mouth of the lndigir-
ka and the mouth of the Lena. If he reached
the coast early enough to the summer he
ought to have found Russian and native fish
ing atationa at the mouths of the
lodigirka and xana and other smaller
streams which fall into the
Arctio ocean in tbat vicinity,
and thua have obtained succor much nearer
than Lena. It is possible, however, he did
not reach the main land until after the fish
ing stations had all been abandoned and the
fishermen had retreated np the rivers to
their winter Tillages, which, as a rule, are
situated some distance inland. At the mouth
of the Lena there is, I believe, a permanent
settlement, and this seems to have been
appointed as a rendezvous lor all
the boats. If the tnird boat failed
to reach the rendezvous agreed upon, the
conclusion by no means follows that it is lost.

There is some stir among newspaper men
and quidnuitc in Washington to-night over
the interview published in tbe rhiladelphia
Prew, purporting to be the conversation of
General Joe Johnston respecting Mr. Jeffer
son Davis. The so-called "interview" under
takes to give an account of some $2,500,000
n specie bemr carried bv Mr. Davis to the
South in his flight, and never accounted for;
tbat General Johnston, on hearing of it, ap
plied to Mr. Davis for a portion of it to pav
hia troops, but that, beyond acknowledging
the letter, no answer was made; that the
banker ot rtichmond placed Z360.000 in
specie in the hands of Mr. Davis for the de
fense of the city, which waa also conveyed
South, but that a larger part of it was seized
by the United States, and the balance not ac
counted for. . The direct implication of the
whole article is that Mr. Davis either appro
priated to himself or squandered a large
portion of the specie of the Confederacy.
The relations of Mr. Davis and General
Johnston are not friendly, but there is no
reason to believe that General Johnston
would lend any countenance to these un
worthy slanders. As a matter of fact, the 1
only specie carried South by the Confederate
government was some $2,000,000 of silver
coin, which was appropriated to varies cur
rent expenses ot tbe government, lncludins
the pay of the officers and soldier of tbe
Confederate army, until, at the close, what
little remained was divided np by the vari
ous military organizations which had it in
barge, they feeling that they had a right to
ppropriate it to their arrears ot pay. Mr.
)awia was much of the time not alonr with
this specie train. A the carriage of so onlky
and heavy an amount devolved upon a num
ber ot treasury and military omcers. tbe ac
cusation is a slander upon them mnch more
than npon Mr. Davis, who waa captured not
long afterward. None of hiaslanderers have
pretended that when taken he was loaded
down - with treasure, though they have
coined many other fabrications. The money
the banks was their own specie, which
they conveyed South in charge of their own
bank officer in the vain endeavor to protect
it from seizure and appropriation Dy the
United State authorities. The correspond
ent who gave this interview to Hjb press is
one who has been long engaged in systematic
defamation of the Southern people, and it ia
not to 09 believed tbat Uenerai Johnston
would make a change which is ridiculous in

The Supreme Court of the United States.
yesterday, in the case of Wm. Libby et at,
survivors of A. T. Stewart and Francis
Warden, against Lewi C. Hopkins et at.
brought there from the Supreme Court 01
Ohio, affirmed the decision of the latter
court, Thi was a suit to foreclose certain
mortgage npon, real estate in Cincinnati,
payment of promTworV nbleS
Hopkins sent Stewart & Co., before he be
came insolvent, money, enough to pay these
nou and release the real estate from the
lien ot the mortgages, and gave specific di
rections that tbe money should be so ap
plied. " Stewart & Co., however, used the re
mittances to pay another and unsecured
debt of Hopkins's for merchandise
bought of them, , and . then, after
Hopkins became insolvent, sought to
have the mortgages declared a tint lien npon
the property which they covered. The court
below relused to allow this to be done, de
claring that Stewart & Co. had no right to
set off the unsecured debt due to them from
Hopkins against the funds intrusted with
them for an entirely different purpose. The
Supreme Court of the United States affirms
l,A i.,nn,A., f e -t
and holds that since btewart & Co. relused
to apply the money as Hopkins directed,
they held it subject to his order and continue
so to hold it until the righta of the trustee
in bankruptcy were attached. - If. therefore,
btewart & Co. enforced the hen of mortgage
they must satisfy the counter claim of the
trustee in bankruptcy of Hopkins to the
money which they wrongfully applied.

J. M. Fowlkc,
linois. This waa a suit uno
. ot 11-
a series ol bonis , "Po.
Clav v iasued by the Louisville
. . .upanv, Illinois, ia accordance with
a vote of its citizens, taken July 2, 1870, aa a
subscription to the capital stock of what was
then called tbe Illinois Southeastern Bail
road company. The corporation afterward
merged into . the Springfield and Illinois
Southeastern Railway company. The prin
cipal reason assigned by the corporation lor
its refusal to pay the coupons, and the main
points nt its aelense is, that on the days when
the bonds were authorized bv the vote of the
people of Louisville a new State constitution
was adoped by the people of Illinois, making
it illegal for anv municipal corporation to
subscribe to the capital stock of any
railroad, or to make a donation, or to
loan or credit in aid of any such
corporation, except in case where such de-
nations or subscriptions ha I already been
authorized under existing laws by a popular
vote of the municipality. In a lone and
carefully prepared opinion by Justice Har
lan, me bupreme Uourt holds tbat in the
sense of the State constitution, the Louisville
township election of July 2, 1870, was held
prior to the adoption of the section forbid
ding municipal subscription or donations in
aia ot railroad corporations, and nnder au
thority of valid enactments in force whtn
such election waa held, the bonds and cou
pons of which are in suit were consequently
unaffected by the prohibition of the State
constitution. For decisions upon other points
of municipality defense, the court refers to
its opinion in the similar case of Uarter t.
Kan inch an. The Judgment of the court be
low is affirmed, Justices Bradley and Miller
