The Rfiwt* committee on tkr District of Co
lumbia h<*l?l a ?TTi?l MMon thi.? morning to
brat arguoi' nu in favor of and against the
plan of the board of nrTey. of which Ca|i'iii
Carlisle Patterson, United Stat* coast surver,
is < hair rami. lor the improvement of th? river
ai <1 harbor at Washington.
?'ol. W. A. Cook resumed his argument in
lav or of the improvement, and showed br legal
ret* rences and numerous derisions of the ITsited
titaUri) SiiprtJM Court that the
( Ub-il'lAKl asbohiocahal company ha*
!*?> TAUD CLAIM
to Und formed by accretion In the Potomac.
He claimed that the original act authorizing
the construction of the canal gave the company
only the right to the land through which it was
to pas*. and did nut confer riparian rights. Be
sides, if any farther reason wh? the company
is not entitled to such rights 1? necessary, it is
found In the fact that private wharves have
b? n built between the canal and the channel,
and until ww the company has never asserted l>
claim to the accretions. He further claimed that
it wat the duty of the canal compauy and not
of Washington citr. to keep the canal betwoen
17th street and Rock creek in navigable condi
tion, and that havii.g failed to do Uu? they have
forfeited their charter. Touching
THE CLAIMS or PRIVATE WHAKf-OWSIIW,
he took similar grounds in regard to accretkms.
He >lw reviewed the claims of the Washington
and Alexandria canal company, and held that
the government has a clear right to carry out
the pre>|?>*cd improvement, notwithstanding tlw
claims of this company. He clos> <l by saying
that no individual or 'artificial claims sln'mltl
stand in the way of the improvement of the
capital.
Col. Cook subsequently said he was re<|uest'-d
to say l>v several claimants ot" "vested rights"
on the river that they are not opposed u> the im
I roveinent of the river, but claim compensation
for any damage which may ensne to them in
carrying out the im|>rovement.
1'KoMiSSOR EAMTMAB, OT THE IAVAL OB*KB
VATOHT,
testified as to the unhealthfulness of the observa
tory. and said that several persons had died
there?their deaths being superinduced by tlie
malaria arising from the caiual and river. He
himself had had malaual fever, and no one on
?lutv at the observatory is safe from it. The su
I>erintendent cannot live there. Several persons
connected with the observatory are now sick
with the chills and feveT, or 'malarial lever.
The unhealthfulne*< of the location is well
know n among the officers on duty there, and no
one can live there either night or day aud retain
bis health. Were it a healthy place, the ofilcei*
could do six hours' work tier day, whereas ttu-y
now cannotdo more than fonr. It is usually fog
?v everv morning. The tilling of the go-ttrilfld
lidwclf Meadows might partially remedy this.
A railroad built along the canal below theobacr
vatory would interfere with observation*.

THE BILL.
Mr. C. R. Church called attention to the fact
thAt the plan of Improvement contemplates the
closing of the westers channel of the river,
which cohUI be done in ten days, and that is>
provision had been made for the commerce of
Washington, which won Id be entirely suspend oil
bv the closing of this channel. He believed that
this matter had been overlooked, and urged an
additional provision in the bill to secure the
commerce of Washington front interruption.
CAPTAIJt TATTERBOB El PLAINS.
Cat-tain Carlisle Patterson, chairman of the
board of survey, explained to the committee, by
means of maps, the various reasons which in
duced the board to recommend their plan for the
improvement, and answered a number of ques
tions relative to the course of the river, the tides,
high water, accretions, Ac. lie stated, as he did
before the House District committee some time
since, that be prefers the government bill, a is I
thought it singular that individual* should in
trrpose objections when it is well-known that
the government always eompensates the owners
of property taken for public uses.
Mr. Horatio N. Easbv asked Captain Patter
sou if he did not thlni Lieutenant Rives' plan
for the improvement of the channel (which pro
pose s to close the western channel and bring the
main channel on the eastern side of the river)
conld not be carried out with as little expense as
the plan of the board of survey. Capt. Patterson
replied that in his opinion the cost would proba
bly be about the same as that of carrying out the
plaa of the board of survey, but that lie 6 utterly
oppoxed to the Kives plan', liecause its execution
would Involve the creation of a large marsh on
the west side of the channel, whereas the plan
of the board of surrey, if carried out, would
reclaim sllthelow lands or marshes on the river.
.Mr. Eaety asked Capt. Patterson If lie did not
Im licve, in case Rives'plan is carried out, that
the intervening channel would absorb the rna
iaria from the marsh on the west side of tke
channel liefwre r< aching this city. Capt. Pat
terson thought not, but said tha' is a medicul
qui stion f*>r the doctors to determine.
The committee adjourned, subject to the call
of the chairman.

about the business of the eoneem; that he had
made * careful examination at the books anJ
found it impossible to reconcile wbc serious dis
crej?uclcs, and had reluctiantly come to the
conclusion that there must be in their employ
ment no roe unfaithful servant, and desired the
service* of that officer to hi* discovery.
Mr .8argent consented to a trial of working np
the job, and after Informing himself fully as to
the number of hands employed by the firm,
their names, residence, pecuniary condition,
Ac., ami obtaining a detailed statement as to
the manner in which the business of the lwmber
vard was conducted, he concluded that the fore
man of the yard (whose name it is deemed best
to withhold) was the man he wanted. After
acquainting Chief Clarvoe of the case, he took
Infective McElfrtsh in to assist him in the exe
cution of the plans which he proj>oaed. Thr
manag* ment ot the lumber yard for some years
had been entrusted to this foreman, a steady
ami industrious m;in, and so great was the con
fidence reposed in him, that all cash sales of
lumber made at the yard for some time past,
during the absence ot the firm, have been left
entirely in his hands, an account of which, with
all money*, was required to be rendered at the
office at the close of each day.

was to engage a countryman with a four-horse
team, and to furnish him with money to pay for
lumber to be bought at the yard. Each note
they took nod care to mark in such a manner
as to be able to identify It. The conntrvman
was then dispatched with his marked notos late
one afternoon about one week since to this yard
with orders to purchase a load of boards, and
!>ay tike cash down without requiring any bill <ir
receipt. It was planed for the purchase to he
made late In the day, so as to preclude the pos
sibility of the money being given out In change,
and stationing themselves convenient to tlie
office 'of the yard, alter the foreman had turn
ed in the receipts of the day, and took his de
parture for home, they quickly stepped into the
??ffice. when the package of money turned in by
the foreman was handed them. Glancing over
.t, not one of the marked notos was found. The*

Both being strangers to him he demanded what
right they had to interfere with Mm on his way
tohis home peaceably, but was told that Major
Kichanls and Chief 'Clarvoe desired an inter
view with him at police headquarters. He, with
Ktme hesitation,went along with them, and soon
Has closets! with these officers, who were not at
t.ll slow in telling him why "this was thus." On
fully learning how it was, he stoutly denied the
charge, but 011 searching him upwards of ois'
hundred dollar* In greenbacks were found on
his person, and among them every one of the
marked note* paid by the conntrvman tor the
lumber, corresponding to the list of said notes
which the officers had retained. At first lie did
not understand why the money was so closeh
scrutinize-d bv the" officers, but it soon became:
apparent, and he declared that It wa* his inten
tion to turn the money over to his employers ties
Lext day, and that he" never dreamed of appro
I riating it to his own use. This statement the
officers considered
TOO THIS,
and his asseverations of honesty went but a little
way with them, they all being convinced tint

charged upon him by the officers, who told him
that he was in a fair wav to the penitentiary,
and must be locked up. At this he became weak

covering a term of nine years and amounting to
about 930,000. He was completely nnnorved,
and expressed his willingness to make all the
reparation in his power, offering to turn over all
his |>o?Nessioiis anu leave the city If they would
consent not to prosecute hiin. pleading that he
had a wife and family deluding noon him for
support: that his wife was in sucn a state of
health that his incarceration in prison would be
the cause of her death, Ac. The Intense distress
manifested by their old foreman so wmught upon
the junior members of the firm that they soon
relented and finally consented that if tlie proper
officers would coiisent to a settlement without
criminal prosecution they would agree to it.
District Attorney Harrington was sent for, and
after a recital ot what had transpired, he con
sulted with Judge Fisher, and together with
Major Klcliards, they went before Chi f,Justice j
Cartter and laid the' whole matter liefore him,

wife, the earnest desire of the firm, aud all

? l<;ainred the guilty man of the conclusions ar
rived at, alien it was arranged between l?oth
parties to the case, that a list of the effects of the
? !ishonet>t foreman should be made out then an>1

The list submitted showed tlie man to be
srner of three houses valued at #12,000. a fnnn
worth #10,000 and other smaller effects. The
losers expressed their desire rot to he too exact

that deeds to the city property should be turned
over to the firm, together with his notes for
*3,000 to the firm, the farm to be retained by the

the firm, and the affair wis thus settled. This

Handkfrekieh.
In judging of p?ople by their belongings, th*
pocket-handkerchief gives a wonderful cine. A ,
hat is not wholly without a kind of human ex
pression. It piits on something of its wearer's j
manners: it may be pert. gra\e, or apologetic.
One has been seen before this, the yep turn-up
of whose brim insulted every other hat within !
"ntbestTeet.
and again a coat is mot with that has
something decidedly characteristic in its
wrinkles. Boots betray disjosition; they turn
up at the toes and swav dewn at the heels, till
you could identify their owners from them, lint
tlie pocket-handkerchicf is the visible emb sli
ment of its user. Watch n man handling it, and
you know his character at once.
To some nervous men the pocket-handkar
chitf is really a sort of other self. They arc for
ever putting It forward; they mori about be
hind it; they pass through the world partly
under cover of it. It is a semi-disguise, a shel
ter, without which they could do nothing com
fortably. Have they to enter a room, out comes
the pocket-handkerchief, and the tir?t thing
vMbie of their entrance is its appearing through
the doorway.
Another very different class there ;c ?-*ir) ef
fectively display their harsher disp it- by
continually ill-using their pocket-handkerchiefs.
If they have to put th? m into their jswkete
they crush them In; if tliey have to pull tliani
out", tliey drag thein forth. They savagely
crumble them up. they positively make hard
balls of tliem, or else thev will shake them out
with a fillip that gives a crack like a horsewhip.
Others will weakly betray their characters bv
a neglect of their "|>ocket-handkerehiefs. At
times they allow the unaiipreciated article to
draggle out of the tail-pocket, part wav to their
heel*?limp, helpless, ruined; or they may show
no signs whatever of having such a treasure, it
being burled a wav at the very bottom of the
i<ocket; or they will let it drop loose from the
Land on scat or floor, actually losing it. A man
who exhibits such a want of appreciation of a
pocket-handkerchief as this is not to be relied
upon. He will just as easily pass over, forget,
or drop you.
A different kind of man there Is who, without
l?eing either a tyrant or a slighter of his pocket
handkerchief, is never upon good terms with it.
A perpetual tiff seems to exist between them;
they are always visibly at cross-purpose*. The
handkerchief will not come out as it ought to
do; it will not unfold properly. It will not go into
thr pocket again without compulsion.
Hut worse than any and all of these, a few in
explicable people are to be met with who pro.
duce their iiocket-hsddkerchief* hesitatingly
from unexpected places about them, and i-e
them hastily, apologetically huddling the pockct*
handkerchief away out of sight, as If ashamed of
being seen with It.?Journal.

whereby he should he Induced to bribe one of
the ot.p<?itioik who could !*? d.-^ n.I^i on to ex
{?osehlin. At a council of war hel<i aliorllv af

Colonel A. M. York. Senator from Moutgom >rv

shuttle as lie always does, and trial to work it
with York through third parties. York, how
ever, refused to negotiate with the third parti?>
at all, and insisted on doing the businem exclu
sively witli the Senator himself. At la?t Pome
roy susjiend^l the by-law* of liia caution and
Ins piety, and entered njnarcly into
KK?OTIATIOS8 WITH YOBK.
The latter wan none of your ten-cent fellows.
He tokl Pomeroy that his constituents threat
ened to bang him if he voted for the old man
awl so it would be necessarv for him to tell out
lor enough to insure his neck. He further said
that If he voted for Pomeroy he shonM never
dare to live in Montgomery county again, ami
hence he must sell out for enough to enable him
to remove to some other locality, and to indem
nity him against any sacritic*: of property he
might have to make In disposing of his effects in
Montgomery. This recital harrowed up the old
man a boweb of Christian compassion, an.I lie

but Dually effected a compromise 011 thui basie'
to wit: 22,000 down, ?r.,000 within fortv-ei^ht
f.nd the other *1,000 after he was elected.
JJell, ^ ork took his #2,000 and attended the
Pomeroy caucus, where he made the speech of
a iiroeclyte, and was among the humblest of the
late aiid contrite convert*. The next dav he
went and got liU $3,000, which he quietly put in
liw pocket along with the other 82.0M. and hav

house and senate went into joint ballot to-dav
i there was no man in the entire hall whow face
had in it so mncli of the lurking devilment of
wnspiraey as glittered in York's eyes, aud bale
I fully lit up his pale face. It was not long after

the presiding officer rapped order w ith his gavel,

DR. BENIOSi S practice ia moatly diaeaaea of a
Chronic nature, aad caaea given up aa incurable. H.a
treatment ia peculiar to himaelf, although there hav*
been men in all agea who have had the aaiao Mag
netic Power over tlie diaeaaea of the body aad mind.
Some call it the "GIFT OF HKALIKG," yet few
have poeeeeeed it to au< h an extent over nearly all
diaeaaea and persona. The practice ia baa?d up- u tlie
moat atrict principlea of acience; there ia nothing
miraculone or aupernatural about u; ia in karmjc>
with all natural laws.
By thia treatment it take* bnt a few minutes for
inveterate caaea of almost any curable Chronic dia
ease; and ao sure ia the effect that but few diaeaaea
require a second treatment.
