"Traods on the Federal Treasury.
"Tn* ft armn ksi The following ar
ticle frflta the Democratir Monthly Kxritic,
pare 79. exhibits tho sir*** rtardiner case in a
light of much interest and local curiosity.
I he author u no friend of Gardiner, and
merely writes what he regards as his duty as
an American citiled. Hisviews are, there
fore entitled to peculiar consideration as a
disinterested observer of this case."
. The above is the introduction given by
the New York National Democrat, on
Thursday last, to its republication of the
article therein alluded to. Having a few
words to say about that article, aud the
nany similar ones which have been pub
lished over the country, we, perhaps, had
better take this opportunity to say them,
as follows, viz:
It is an ingenious attempt to paliate the
Gardiner fraud, written, not by a "disin
terested observer," but by a party on
whom we can place our finger, who now
seems only to breathe by and through
connection with the accused. It is filled
with misrepresentations of the testimony
on the part of the prosecution, slanders
upon the witnesses, and palliations of
Irauds on thetrovernmcnt generally. This
Gardiner case is in a nut-shell. A man
obtein? more than four hundred thousand
dollars from the Government of the
United States, upon papers alleging that
very recently he was so extensively en
gaged in working silver mines, (employ
ing so many hands therein, dealing with
so many parties in the course of his busi
mag. Ac.,) as that on being driven from
the works, his loss was a half million of
dollars. After being paid nearly that
amount, it is discovered that some of the
papers on which his claim is based are
forgeries. He is prosecuted for the crimes
of perjury and forgery, and some $200,000
of the money paid to him is so attached
as that it will probably find its teay back
into the National Treasury, unless Gardi
ner is acquitted of the criminal charges ,
hanging over him. i
Does any man, with an ounce of brains, *
believe, that if it were possible for the ac
cused to place in the witness box any of
the hundreds of persons who are alleged j <
to have worked for hi'ii so recently at 1.
mining, he would have (ailed to have some ,
of them there ? Can any one believe that; i
if it were possible for hiin to have pro
duced in tkmrt a single man of the hun
dreds with whom lie must have traded in
carrying on the business, he, too, would
not have been brought on the stand ?
No?common sense teaches that, when by
so doing he could at once have saved him
self from further molestation by the Gov
ernment. and have forever secured himself
and the other parties to whom portions of 1
the attaciied $200,000 nominally belong,
in the possession of this money, he would
hove produced such witnesses, if any such
exist. Does any man in his senses be
lieve that he could have worked such
mints, in such manner, so recently, as al- i
leged, without its being jtossille to find <
some such witnesses of the fact ?
We take it that no man lives who has
attentively read or heard the testimony j
in the case, without having come to the J
conclusion that the abstraction of tho ;
large sum from the Treasury paid on this I
claim, involves bold and shameless fraud, j
Bow happens it that the jury failed to
orivict at the recent trial? We
point, i? the first place, to just such pub
lications as that noticed at the head of
this article. We are satisfied that per
sons in Washington connected with the
press, are paid by the accused to represent
the case as this infamous article presents
it to the public. We know, too, that the
potion in society of those who stand in
the background in this atfair, is having
undue weight; there being not a few j
around us who conceive that in aiding j
anJ abetting this transaction, they deserve
#mlit for adroitness, rathor than to be j
kept (at the cost of the Government) from |
doing more harm, which we at least con-i
ceire to be the reward to which more
than one of them is fairly entitled. Un
fortunately* we are without space in
which to point out in detail the infamous
points of the *rtlole, the publication of
which induces us to write on this suty#ct. I
We may, however, idd that the J
point which p reventafacoriri ction|kt the\|
late trial, was fff Wtf*underftand w cor
rectly) the Government's failure to pro
d\?? testimony proving that a certain
mine claimed by Gardiner as his, (only
after the trial commenced,) was not his.
The court, or at least the jury, gave him
the benefit of the possibility that it might
be his. So no verdict was obtained. The
Government subsequently sent out a com
mission to ascertain whether Gardiner's
witnesses are not mistaken in their loca
tion of the mine in question; and, if they
arenotmistaken, then to ascertain whetht r
Gardiner has, or ever had, any connection
with or title to it. This commission will
soon return, when the case will be again
tried, with what result no man can fore
tell. )
Tub Grammar of Tire Nbw York
Collector for tub Washington' Nation
al Movtmbnt.?"W.," in the Intelligen
cer of this morning, makes a fling at the
Star for copying the New York Commer
cial Advertiser's joke over the grammar of
the Collector aforesaid. We have only to
say, that we trust, hereafter, that in se
lecting agents to make such advertise
ments, our great National Monument As
sociation will not aid and abet the diffu
sion of a taste for bad English. By-the
bye; writing of this little affair, reminds
us that years ago there was much said
about the way in which some of the funds
collected for the monument had been
used. Can any one enable us to en
lighten the public on this head ?
Complimentary.?We have thus far
failed to notice the thousand and one flat
ter ing notices of our journal, appearing
in every section of the Union, but the
following from the Duy Book, the liveliest
of all the New York journals, is so well
written and bo heartily expressed that,
with all our modesty, we are induced to
republish it:
" The Washington Star is just such a
paper as has been long- needed in that
city, and we are right gl id that the vacu
um made by the old heavy political
papers, is now filled, an d the want of the
people of Washington, for a sparkling,
lively, gay, rich, and itkcv daily paper,
fully supplied. We wis h the Star all the
patronage it merits?and. it certainly will
never need more."
Sad Cask of Drown ixg.?The Balti
more American of to-day says:
On Saturday morning last the coinposi- ,
tors of the Sun office, to the number of
twelve or fifteen, repaired in an omnibus
to Whitehall, on Back river, aborat seven
miles from the city, to xpend the day in i
fishing, bathing, ac. The early part of
the day passed off very pleasantly, the
company separating in parties, amusing |
themselves in various ways, until about 1
o'clock, when Mr. James Walker was
missed, and search immediately made for (
him. His clothes were finally found on .
the beach, and on wading out his body '
was discovered in quite shallow water, <
perfectly dead, having probably been in j
the water a half hour. it is supposed .
that he was taken with a fit or the cramp,
and was unable to reach the shore. He 1
was about 30 years old, a native of < Jreen- -
castle, Pa., where his widowed mother <
resides, and was universally respected and .
esteemed by all who knew him. His
remains were brought to thi - city by his
sorrowing friendx, and an inquest held, 1
the ooroner returning a verdict in accor- i
dance with the facts. He was buried (
yesterday afternoon, and followed to the
grave by the mei nbers of the Typographi
cal Society and of the Iris Lodge of I. o. ]
o. f. together with a large number of ]
personal friends^ I

Strike of Women Laborkrs.?a late
English paper says that " the women t?f<
Stokesley, Yorkshire, who go out to field
work, (weeding, spreading manure, pull- '
ing turnips, <fcc..) recently struck for an
increase of wages. They sent a crier f.
round to announce that instead of receiv- V

The Unton offic^Ry announces an ap

torney lit Law, of Ne# York city, to be
Secretary of Legation at London, of which
we notified our readers on Saturday last.
Our neighbor goes into ecstacfes over his
selection. The same paper continues
its manipulations of the affair of the
party in New York, trying as it were to
whistle the N. York National Democrat and
Albany Argus back into the party ranks.
It seemsthatthe clique? the Democrat and
Argus clique?in the Legislature repu
diate the recent Legislative Democratic
address, not because it fails to go in for
the platform, &c., but because it endorses
the Administration. as well as the inaug
ural and the platform. The organs of
the clique above mentioned, assuming to
speak for half a dozen legislators whose
names are appended to the address, de
clare that they did not authorise their
signatures to be put to it. The Uniim
praises the address, and contends in
soothing tones that it is not fair for the
Democrat to take the grounds that it is re.
pudiated by the gentlemen in question, un
less they are willing to do so over their own
signatures, which they have not done.
For the life of us, we cannot see that the
Union has made the slightest impression,
so far, upon their factious in N.York by so
industriously tickling them with a straw.
The Union further quotes a recent book
on Turkish law, by Francis Davaise, late
American consul at Constantinople, to
show that Austria perpetrated an illegal
and atrocious act in recently arresting
Costa, the Hungarian refugee, in Smyrna.
The Union also contains an interesting
Paris letter.
The Republic's leader discusses the pro
posed Norfolk and Louisville Railroad j
scheme, upon the theory that railroads
are Union-preservers. The article is as
interesting as the subject, ^hich is saying
much for it. At present the whole of the
line between the points named, east of the
Kentucky line, is under construction or
already finished. It is not to cost more
than an average of $20,000 per mile, is
to have no grade against the current of
the trade of more than sixty feet to the
mile, and its whole length?from the
ocean at Norfolk to the falls of the Ohio?
is to be but seven hundred and nineteen
miles. In Scott county, Virginia, the en
gineer has located the road through a
natural tunnel in which a creek courses
under a little mountain for five hundred
feet. This mountain must be passed, and
this tunnel, with trifling cost, is to fur
nish the means of passing it. The same
paper quotes the Boston Transcript, to
prove that T. Butler King cannot possibly
be a defaulter.
The Intelligcncer contains a letter from
Colonel Benton, transmitting one from
Mr. Harris Heap, companiou of Superin
tendent Beale in his central route expedi
tion to California, in both of which the
peculiar virtues of the Fremont route for
the Pacific railroad are set forth. The
Intelligencer's London correspondent dis
courses foreign affairs gent Tally, and the

1. Soldiers confined by civil authority.^are
not entitled to pay during such confinement,
unless discharged therefrom without trial or
by trial and acquittal, and commanders of

state explicitly upon the muster rolls of their

confinements, and whether the soldiers so
confined were discharged without trial, and if
tried, whether they were acquitted or con

II. The following remarks in relation to the
proceedings of the General Court Martial con
vened at Fort Leavenworth, pursuant to Or
ders No. 2, dated Febiuary 1, 1K53. from the
Head Quarters of the Western Division, have
been received from the War Department, and
are published to the Army.
At a (General Court Martial hold at Fort
Leavenworth for the trial of Major Howe. 2d
Dragoons, an erroneous decision was made, to
which the attention of the service should be
directed, in order that alike error may be, in
future, avoided.
The accused challenged a member for "bias,
prejudice, and malice. ' The member " then
stated that he had no prejudice or bias against
the accused which could in the remotest de
gree interfere with his doing justice in the
case;" but "?being challenged, he requested
to be relieved from sitting on the court;"
which the court refused, and overruled the
challenge. The accused then requested that
the member might be " put on his voir dire in
order that he might examine hiiuas to the ex
tent of any prejudice he might entertain
which ftpplicntion the court refused.
The ground of thedecision is not expressed.
Whether it waa that the court considered that
the member ought not to be examined, and
that the cause of challenge must be shown by
other proof; or whether, thev thought the ex
planation already made by him sufficient.
It was never doubted that a juror moy be
examined as to his bias or prejudice, or his
opinions in the matter for trial; except that it
was at one time held that opinions formed and
expressed, as they may be proved by extrinsic
evidence, ought to be so proved.
Lut that distinction is not now maintained
in the courts of this country ; and an accused
is now allowed in all cases, for the better se
curity of an impartial trial, to show the mind
of the juror hy examining him before the
court; and the only exception is, where the
cause of challenge goes to the disgrace or dis
credit of the juror.
In regard to the sufficiency of the explana
tion made by the member, the court ought to
have considered that it was not a denial, hut
in some degree nn admission of bias and pre
judice. qualified by the member's opinion that
it could not influence his judgment in the
trial. This, however, was the matter of which
the court were to judge after enquiring into
the nature and grounds of his feelings to
wards the accused. And as to the proof in
this regard, the law allows the accused the
testimony of the member in the mode he de

Bathing in the Canal.
Washington, August 1, 1S53.
To the Editors of the Evening Star,
Gentlemen : Is there no law prohibiting
the practice of bathing in the canal?at least
during those hours of the day when ladies and
gentlemen so frequently cross and rocross the
several bridges ? The locality of 10th street
bridge has of late (and particularly on the
Sabbath) presented a scene not at all in ac
cordance with the refinement of Metropolitan
society. If this exposure of person, so near a
prominent thorougfare of our city, is not in
violation of law, it is certainly opposed to
every rule of decency, and as such deserves the
severe censure of the community.
