C.: Dear Sir : Your letter is jnst received. I thank you for the confidence reposed in me, and will gladly re eive any monies or contributions you may receive for the relief of the destitute. I would prefer that other srentlemen should be associated with me as trustees, and would suggest that If the tunds come in too late for the relief of the present prepsing destitution, it will be better to devote the fund?. or a portion of them, to the education of any and all classes of the poor, for except in casesof famine, the ordinary poverty in any section of this country can easily be met by the communities where it may exist. But in no case can too much be given for the all important work of edu cation. Very respectfully your obedient servant, O. O. HOWARD, Major General, Commissioner.

Mr. Tomeny immediately appeared before Jnstice N. H. Miller, and the case was set for bearing at bait-past five o'clock on Saturday afternoon?Messrs. Riddle and Saffold for the prosecution, and Mr Cox for the defease. Tbe first witness put upon the stand was L. B Roberts, wbo stated that be arrived in Wash ington between tbe 12th and 16th of June, ie<>0, and put up at Willard's Hotel; that be brought with him certain papers relative to alleged frauds practised on tfte Government in Alabama in relation to cotton, together with certain informal vouchers, (al ready described above,) about five dollars' worth of revenue stamns, and affidavits rela tive to tbe alleged cotton frauds to be laid be fore the Treasury Department; that on or about j tbe 25th nay of .lune, 1-66, he left bis room abont 3 o'clock and returned about 7 o'clock; tbatwhen he did so he found his apartment bad been entered, and tbe tin box containing tbe aforesaid papers cairied off; that on the 26th of June, 1F67, in the custom-house at Mo bile, be was informed by one (lager, deputy U. S. marshal, as to who it was wbo had en tered bis room and stolen the papers; that on getting this information be followed certain parties to Memphis, Tenn.. where he remained till tbe 6tli inst., when, in company with War ren Carpenter, be started for Washington. Upon cross-examination by tbe defense, wit ness stated that while acting as special agent for the Treasury Department be had rendered an account to Tomeny of certain moneys spent by him in investigation of cotton claims; that Tomeny relused to allow the same, and that be had nothing to do with him since January, 186t>; that he (Koberts) waa before tbe Federal grand jury at Mobile, and laid before them the facts telating to Tomeny. referred to in the papers, reports, and affidavits in the tin box which bad been stolen; that ne (Roberts) had charged Tomeny with defrauding tbe Govern ment; was informed that tbe grand jury had found a bill In May, 1866; had since learned that tbe Attorney General for tbe United States had entered a nolle jrrosequi; he had made com munication to the secretary of the Treasury in January, 1866. that Tomeny was In collnsion with one Winston: on the 15th or 16th of June, had made other statements cf a more general obaracter. unfavorable toTomeny; that he had been pursuing Winston, and wbile doing so received a telegraph from Tomeny that he desired h>m to come to Mobile te consult with him. Iiureply to a direct interrogation; he said that he did make a proposition to Tomeny to have tbe military seize Wmton. and himself and Tomeny would divide about 450 bales ol bis (Winton's) cotton; that in reply to his suggestion Tomeny's remark was, "All right, 1 will trust that to you." At this juncture, Tomeny excitedly remarked in the ear of his counsel, but loud enough to be heard over the room,"Thai's ad-d lie;" whereupon tbe counsel for the prosecution made objection to Mr. Tom eny's maniifr as insulting to tbe prosecution, and tbe Justice remarked that he must avoid all occasion of offense in the futnre. Roberts, resuming, said that nothing was done in per suanc* of his suggestion apd that no attempt was mane to get tbe cotton from Winton. lnre j ly to an other direct interrogatory, Roberts stated tbat be bad appeared before a sub-com mittee of the Retrenchment Committee appoint, ed by Congress, and had charged Tomeny with detrauding the Government, Thinks that some ot the affidavits in tbe stolen box concerned Tomeny; that the parties wbo made them are still aliv . Most of tbe affidavit had been en closed to tbe Departments at Washington, and he supposed they were on file; did not know Tomeny knew the contents of ".he box. and had reason to believe that Tomeny wish?d to get bold oi tbe box. }\ arrt i> Carpenter sworn ?Stated that in the latter part of 1^5 he was at Gainesville, Ala , with Roberts: engaged in picking up cotton: tbat he was there till 1st of January, 1!-<J6, when he went to Mobile and stayed till June, 1S66: be knew of Roberts' loss of box; tbat wbue at Mobile a man named Rockwell came | to see him about copies of cer:ain depositions; didn't know what Tomeny h ad to do with the papers, or of what value they were to him: Rockwell told him (Carpenter) tbat if be would steal tbe papers be (Roekwell) would see that Carpenter was paid handsomely; his ! ieply was tbat be wonld do bis best to get them, but tbat it would tak? money: tbat he made a key to fit Roberts' room at the Battle House in Mobile: tbat be had tbe key in Tome- j ny's office at Mobile, and supposed he (Tome- j ny) knew all about it, because witness used to j talk about the matter in Tomeny's office; that i soon after, say May, 186?, Roberts left for j Washington; tuat Tomeny had already left Mobile: that he (Carpenter) got $125 from a ; man named DuBois after Tomeny left. DuBois | saving tbat Tomeny had gone to Washing- I ton and lelt no money for Carpenter to ' prosecute his design of stealing Roberts' , papers: that be (witness) came to Wasbiugten i and registered as Wilson and DuBois as Mor gan: that a man named Ruter roomed with j Roberts at Willard's; that a plan was fixed by which Ruter and Roberts snould leave their room, and while they were ab*ent he sbonld enter tbelr room by a false key already pre pared: tbat he opened Roberts room with his lalse key, bolted tbe door after bim Inside, then turned everything inside over on the floor, opened bureau drawers and upset things generally: opened Ruter's trunk, put his papers out cn the tloor, opened the wardrobe, found papers and took them out: rode to his hotel, saw DuBois, and put the papers into bis (wit ness') valise, and then took tbe first train for Philadelphia; on arriving tbere took out the box and fonnd papers and revenue stamps: tbat next morning be started for DuBois' house in New Jersey: that he left the papers relating to Tomeny with DuBois; then went to his home in Micbtgan, and when be came back te New York met Tomeny in ibe dining-room of tbe Brevoort House, that Tomery asked him the news, wheu he told him tbat Robert's goose was cooked: that he afterwards explained to Tomeny more fully what he bad done; told him he was out of money and wanted $300: that Tomeny let him baveSlsO. with which be returned to Michi gan and came back to New Jersey on the 4th ol July; subsequently met Tomeny at various points. DuBois' sold the revenue stamps in the box lor $3; there were no papers of money value in the box, and had never heard Tomeny sav anything its to the value of the papers to himself; that on his last interview with T<meiy heat first appeared to be satis fled with the papers, but after looking at them was dissatisfied because tbey were copies and not tbe originals, and on that account refused topaybimtor them, alleging ttjat Mr. Win ston. for wbese benefit tbey were Intended, said th?y were of no use to him; that be was induced to come on here as a witness on tbe assurance tbat if be turned state's evideneeit would mske Tomeny guilty and he wonld es cape prosecution. Here the evidence for tbe prosecution closed. Mr. Cox, counsel for the defense, stated tbat he did not Know tbat it was necessary to in troduce any witnesses on tbeir side, as the prosecution had utterly failed to make out a case against Mr. Tomeny. The evidence showed ?hat these parties had never seen Mr. Tomenv between the time of bis leaving Mo bile in May and meeting bim in New York in July, while tbe theft was committed in Wash ing ion in tbe middle of June.
