The votes cast in the Senate by Senator
l.ewis in the interest of the extreme Radi
cals has teen a matter of mystery, especially
in view of the liberal elements by which he
was elected to represent the Mother of
States. The story is here that the Senator is
like other mortals human?that he is ai
fected by selfish considerations, and that his
brother (Charles) was appointed to a for
r gn mission as a consideration for the votes
of thg senator in support of the "intolera
ble Radicals."
The senator has been tugging away at the
public jug unite vigorously, and is very ex
,*! -ling in his demands for official patronage.
I ik> new converts generally, he is among
the most ultra and intolerant, and his vote
in > }?? found in the list of the most radical
. ! Radicals. His compensation is tube in the
distribution of official patronage, and at the
. ml of his term of the United States Senate
be will be retired to private life, never
more to he heard of.
Tlic Baltimore and Ohio Railroad.
Some time since Commissioner Delanore
i l ived from John W. Garrett, President of
the Baltimore and Ohio railroad, a propo
sition to arrange the amount due by the
roinpauv to the Government for taxes, etc.,
Mi l the proposition was rejected. Several
?l :\sagoanother offer of compromise was
made by the company to pay ?110 to the
Government as the five per cent, tax ou the
?i,200 surplus earnings ot the company,
which amount they had used in adding to
their stock, etc., and which had been
charged to construction account.
This proposition was accepted to-day, and
the company is to pay the money next week,
and !*? credited with settlement up to Ja
nuary i?t, 1*70. The commissioner will hc
. ? pt no compromise where the eorapany
holds as trustee $T),000,000 of bonds issued
by themselves and endorsed by the city of
Baltimore, and has ordered suit to be
brought against the company for recovery
of tax of these bonds for 18b-} to 1SGD.
Tito Itoport on the Tioo Metro.
The report of the Commissioner ot' Inter
im! Kevenue sent to Congress yesterday on
the Twe metro is conflicting us tot lie merits
the machine. Snueof the tests to which
it has been put show that the metre is ut
terly worthless, whilst others, and very
critical ones, show that the instrument
??ailed the sample metre can he relied upon,
and may he gotten up for about ?5<>0. and
Mr. Tice abandons his other machines.
The report shows that Congress is re
sponsible lor tin* adoption of this machine
in the revenue service, and the Commis
sioner sends it hack to its home to he tos
tered and eared for by its legitimate parent,
linrefnccd < orru5??ton.
An effort is made by a portion of the
pre**, subsidized no doubt by the man
Mullock, to show that he and his conferrees
are pure, unselfish, patriotic citizens, and
haven't been using their funds or the funds
of the railroad owned by the State of Geor-.
g;:?. to support the seallawags and perpetu
ate themselves in office. The proof before
the Senate investigating committee will l>e
ample to show the opposite, and that Bul
lock, Blodgett & Company are the most cor
rupt politicians that have ever been tole
rated in a community, and that their course
hep- has been of the most barefaced charac
ter. Never in the history of political cor
ruption in the Capitol has there been prac
ticed by a sel of political scamps and
schemer's such unblushing impudence and
effrontery to influence the votes of members
of Congress. The committee in the Senate
will make all this apparent before they got
through the investigation.
Miscellaneous.
Commissioner Delano decided to-day that
cigar-boxes on which are discovered spu
rious stamps arc liable to seizure, and has
?o instructed the assessors and collectors
throughout the country.
A dispatch was received at the Revenue
Bureau to-day announcing that John J.
Bobbins has been convicted in Cincinnati,
Ohio, on six counts, for selling tobacco

The following figures are collected from

but the Treasury uow holds bonds

April 1st, 1970, with accrued Interest
i hereon '. *105 229,307 86
In consequence of the payment of the an
nual taxes under the internal revenue laws
for the next three months the Treasury will
be in receipt of a larger amount of currency
than during the past three months. Com
missioner Delano estimates his collections
for April, May and June, of 1870, in the ag
gregate, at about $52,000,000. Therefore,
unless expenditures largely increase (which
is not probable), or the .Secretary decides
to increase his purchases of bonds, there
must inevitably lie an increase of currency
balance in the Treasury for the next three
mouths.
The coin balance and currency balance in
the Treasury, on this 23d day of April, are
each greater by $2,000,000 than they were
on the 1st instant. Wallace.

? This country during the last thirty or
forty years has produced some of the most
remarkable cases of insanity of which there
?is any mention in history. For instance,
there was the Baldwin case, In Ohio, twen
ty-two years ago. Baldwin, from his boy
hood up had been of a vindictive, malig
nant, nature. He put a boy's eye out once,
and never was heard upon any occasion to
utter a regret for it. He did many such
things. But at last he did something that
was serious. He called at a house just after
dark one evening, knocked, and when the
occupant came to the door, shot him
dead, and then tried to escape, but
was captured. Two days before he
had wantonly insulted a helpless crip-,
pie. and the man he afterwards iook
swift vengeance upon with an assassin
bullet knocked him down. Such was the
Baldwin case. The trial was long and ex
citing: the community was fearfully
wrought up. Men said this spiteful, bad
hearted villain had caused grief enough in
his time, and now he should satisfy the law.
But they were mistaken. Baldwin was in
sane when he did the deed; they had not
thought of that. By the arguments of
counsel it was shown that, at 10:30 in the
morning on the day of the murder, Bald
win became insane, and remained so for
eleven hours and a naif exactly. This just
covered the case comfortably, and be was
acquitted. Thus, if an unthinking and ex
cited community had been listened to in
stead of the arguments of counsel, a poor,
crazy creature would have been held to a
fearful responsibility for a mere freak of
madness. Baldwin' went clear, and, al-J
though his relatives and friends were natu
rally incensed against the community for
their injurious suspicions and remarks, they
said let it go for this time, and did not prose
cute. The Baldwins were very wealthy. This
same Baldwin had momentary fits of insan
ity twice afterwards, and on both occasions
killed people he had grudges against. And
on both these occasions the circumstances
of the killing were so aggravated, and the
murders so seemingly heartless ana treache
rous, that if Baldwin had not been Insane
he would have been hanged without the
shadow of a doubt. As it was, it required
all his political and family influence to get
him clear in one of the cases, and cost him
not less than 910,000 to get clear in the
other. One of these men he had notoriously
i}?e-&-threatening to kill for twelve years.
The poor creature erest
f)iece of ill-fortune, to come along a darkaP
ey at the very moment that Baldwin's insan
ity came Upon him, ahd so he was shot in
the back with a gun loaded With slugs. It
was exceedingly fortunate for Baldwin that
his insanity came on him just when it did.
Take the case of Lynch Hackett, of Penn
Slvania. Twice in public he attacked a
erman butcher by the name of Bemis
Feldner with a cane, and both times Feld
ner whipped him With his fists. Hackett
was a vain, wealthy, violent gentleman,
who held his blood and family in high
esteem, and believed that a reverent respect
was due his great riches. He brooded over
the shame of his chastisement for two
weeks, and then, in a momentary fit of in
sanity, armed himself to the teeth, rode
iuto town, waited a couple of hours until
he saw Feldner coining down the street
with his wife on his arm, and then, as the
couple passed the doorway in which he had
partially concealed himself, he drove a knife
into Feidner's neck, killing him instantly.
The widow caught the limp form and eased
it to the earth. Both were drenched with
blood. Hackett jocosely remarked to her
that as a professional butcher's recent wife
she cotud appreciate the artistic neat
ness of the job that left her in a
condition to marry again, in case
she wanted to. This remark, and an
other which he made to a friend, that his
position in society made the killing of an
obscure citizen sirnplv an "eccentricity"
instead of a crime, were shown to be evi
dence of insanity, and so Hackett escaped
punishment. The jury were hardly in
clined to accept these as proofs at first, in
asmuch as the prisoner had never been in
sane before the murder, and under the tran
fiuiliving Cttfccl of the butchering had im
mediately regained his right mind} but
when the defence came to show that a third
cousin of. Huekctt's wife's stepfather was
insane, and not only insane, but had a nose
the very counterpart of IJackett's, it was
plalil that insaiiity was hereditary in the
family, and Hackett had come by it by 16*
dtimate inheritance. Of course" the jury
then acquitted him. But it was a merciful
Providence that Mrs. Hackett's people had
been afflicted as shown, else Hackett would
bhrtainlV have been hanged.
However, it is not possible to accoliht for
all the marvellous cases of insanity that have
come under the public notice in the last
thirty or forty years. There was the Dur
gin case in New Jersey three years ago. The
S%rvi?ht girl, Bridget JDurgaiij at dead of
night invaded her mistress's bedroom and
carved the ladv literally to pieces with a
knife. Then she dragg'ed the body to the
middle of the floor and beat and banged it
with chairs and 6uch things. Next she
opened the feather beds and strewed the
fcoiltfents around, saturated everything with
kerosene and set fire to the general wreck.
She now took up the young child of the
murdered woman in her blood-smearing
hands and walked off throqgl} the snow with
no 6hoes oh, to a neighbor s nouse a quarter
of a mile off, and told a string of wild, inco
herent stories about some men coming and
setting fire to the house; and then she cried
piteously, and without seeming to think
there was anything suggestive about the
blood upon her hands, her clothing, and the
baby, volunteered the remark that she was
afraid the
iese meb bad murdered her mistress I
Afterward) by her own confession and other
testimony, it was proved that the mistress
had always been kind to the girl, conse
quently there was no revenge in the mur
der ; aud it was also shown that the girl
took nothing away from the burning house,
not even her own shoes, and consequently
robbery was not the motive. Now, the
reader says* "Here comes that same old
Slea of insanity again." But the reader* has
eceived himself this time. No such plea
was offered in her defence. The judge sen
tenced her, nobody persecuted the Gover
nor with petitions for her pardon, and she
^Therb?1asyt& yotith in Pennsylvania*
whose curious confession was published a
year ago. It was simply a conglomeration
of incoherent drivel from beginning to end?
and so waa his lengthy speech on the scaf
fold afterward. For a whole year he was
haunted with a desire to disfigure a certain
young woman so that no one would marry
her. He did not love her himself, and he did
not Wont to tnarry her* and yet was opposed
to anybody else's fesfeorting her; Upon qM
Occasion ho. declined to go to & wedding
With ber> and when she got other
eompany; lay in wait for the couple
.lit; ~ ?nt,. ?t.nm mi
by die roadi intending fcq mak^. them gp
>r kill the escort, After spend3
hack or
ing sleepless nights over his ruling de
sire for a full year, he at last attempted
its execution?that is, attempted to dis
figure the young woman. It was a success.
It was permanent. In trying to shoot her
cheek (as she sat at the supper-table with
her parents and brother and sisters) in such
a manner as to mar its comeliness, one of
his bullets wandered a little out of the
colirse, and she dropped dead; To the very
but moment of his life he bewailed the ill
luck that made her move her face just at the
critical moment. And so he. died appa
rently half-persuaded that somehow it
was chiefly her- own fault that she got
killed. This idiot was hanged. The plea
of insanity was not offered.
The recent case of Lady Mordaunt, ill
England, has proved beyond cavil that the
thing we call common prostitution in Amer
ica is only insanity in Great Britain, ? Her
husband wanted a divorce, but as her cheer
ful peculiarities were the offspring of lunacy,
and consequently she could not oe held re
sponsible for them, he had to take her to his
bosom again. * It is sad to think of a dozen
or two or great English lords taking advan
tage of a poor crazy woman. In this coun
try, if history be worth anything to judge
by, the husband would have rented a grave
yard and stocked ityfaryi then brought the
divorce suit afterward?in which case the
juiy would have brought him In insane, not
his wile.' "
Insanity certainly is. on the increase in the
worlds and crime is dying out. Ther.e are
no longer any murders?none worth men
tioning, at any rate.. Formerly, if you
killed a man, it was possible that you were
insane, but now if you kill a man it is evi
dene* that von were a lunatic. In these d
__ jK$f|MNpGqsp
too, if a person of good family and high so
cial standing steals anything, they call it
I kkptom&ds; and send fetal to the lunatict
aiyiumr If .a person of Wgfe sending
aquandeni Ms fortune In dissipation ana
closes his career with strychnine or a bul
let, "temporary aberration " is what w*#
the matter with Awn. And, finally, as be
fore noted, the list is capped with anew and
curious madness in the shape of wholesale
adultery.
Is not this insanity plea becoming rather
common t Is it not so common that the
reader confidently expects to see it offered
in every criminal case that comes before tbe
court*/ And is it not so cheap, and so
common, and often so trivial, that the reader
smiles in derision when the newspaper men
tions it ? And is it not enrions to note how
very often it wins acquittal for the pris
oner ? Lately it does not seem possible for
a man to so conduct himself before hilling
another man as not to be manifestly insane.
If he talks about the stars he Is insane. If
he appears nervous and uneasy an hour be
fore the killing he is insane. If he weeps -
over a great grief, his Wends shake their
heads and fear he is " not right." If, an
hour after the murder, he seems ill at ease,
preoccupied, and excited, he is unquestion
ably insane. "
Beally, what we want now is not laws
against crime, hut a law against insanity.
There is where the true evil lies.
And tbe penalty attached should be im
prisonment?not hanging. Then it might be
worth the trouble ana expense of tiying the
General Coleses and the General Sickleses,
because juries might lock them up for brief
terms in deference to the majesty of the
law; but it is not likely that any of us will
ever live to see the murderer of a seducer
hanged. Perhaps if the tauth were con
fessed few of us would wish to live that
long.
? If I seem to have wandered from my sub
ject, and thrown in some surplusage," what
do I care ? With these evidences of a wan
dering mind present to the reader, am I to
be debarred from offering the customary
plea of insanity ? Hark Twain.
A Novel Musical Instrument.?A musi
cal instrument called the " German Chime
Bells" has just been received here from
Germany. It is the first of the kind ever
imported into this country, though it has
long been used in the bands of the Prus
sian and other armies. The instrument is
made of brass, is about two feet long by one
and half broad, and resembles a lyre in
form. The foot of it rests in a socket at
tached to a belt passing about the waist of
the musician, and held at the proper angle
by a cord extending from the top to the
neck. The upper projections of the in
strument are ornamented with plumes, and
'jjyhole makes a very novel appearance.
T^fT|o "Vl.|fHht^xeprcsentations of lyre
strings are horixontolhKaWa^fl-ifffe a
number of steel bars, tuned to the va
notes. By striking the several keys with a
hammer, the sweetest music is produced,
which can be heard clearly in connection
with the other pieces in "the band. This
instrument was manufactured by E.
Kruspe, Erfurt, Prussia, and will appear
for the first time in Brown's Brigade Band,
probably at the May training of the Inde
