1R1DAY ....MARCH 10, 18TL
FROM WARHISGTOX. (Corr -^tpondcrce oi the Ulclimond Dispatch ] W AsniNOTOK, March 8, 1871. Vhere are strong intimations that Senator ?Aimncr will bo relieved of his position as ?chairman of the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations. This means war, and Ma vsnc-husettscan but- resent the additional indignity visited upon her, and the result \vtti 1h) that Grant ean never get that State's support for renoml nation. Sumner is in \-*?rv bad odor with those who truckle to The" Administration. His entire record does not sutttee to shield him from their insin uation* and unfriendiv treatment. If he loses the power he holds in the Senate asj chairman of the Foreign Relations Com mittee, ho will he as helpless as a log upon the ocean. In that case the question will l>o paramount. Will not Mew Kngland aiisc in its strength and resent the insult? Time nmst prove. There are some very positive ideas entertained that the original Al>olitionist could wage a very successful war against the latter-day Republicans. I'tThaps Sumner will cot a* nomination for the 1' residency as well as Grant. This is not considered improbable. In that case he would have ample opportunity to ex hibit his strength in the Radical party. The appointment on the Southern Claims Commission oi two ex-members of Con gress? Ojo Senator and one Representa tive? -.,nows that the Administration is wjH.ng to respond favorably to the wail ^ nich comes up from tho-e who have been repudiated by their constituents for ap poiutmeut to* ofiice. The public is now u Waiting the next turn. There are ex members of Cougress around Washington hoping for a better phow than was made in the two appointments to-day. Several of them have longing eyes upon foreign mis sion*. even if some of the officials now in other countries roust be forced, a la Mot ley, to give way for them. Although the Joint, ili^h Commission are as -ilent as the grave on all subjects wbieh have been before them, there begins al rea'.'iy to be felt a feverish anxiety eoncern Ir.g the consultations. It is not unreasona ble to suppose that we may hear something from England, where the Government and people are equally as sensitive as our own, to enhance the feverish state of the public pulse. In many quarters there is an unde tined fear that our claims will fail to meet voucessions requisite thereto. The Admin istration, however, still have high hopes and sanguine expectations. Iimon. Annual Tax Assessments ? }\'(u<hinfjton, March 8.? Under the act of Congress of March "J. 1867, all annual taxes are to he assessed in the month of March of each year, and assistant assessors are required to complete their assessments and place the same in the hands of the assessor on or before the last day of that month. The assessor is then allowed time to hear ap peals or complaints, but the complete list must be placed in the bands of the collector Jor collection on or betore April 30th. During the month of May the taxes, in cluding those on incomes, must be paid. The Commissioner of Internal Revenue lias recently sent out seven teen tons of blank-, ft is made the duty of any person of lawful age, whose gross income during the year preceding 1870 ex ceeded ?2,000, to make and render a re turn on or before the day designated by law to the assistant asses-orof the district in which he resides of the gross amount of his income, gains, and profits; and of every guardian and trustee, executor or adminis trator, and any person acting in any other fiduciary capacity, or as resident agent for or co-partner of any non-resident alien de mine incomes, gains, and profits from any business, trade, or profession carried on in the I'nited States, or from rents of real es tate situated therein, to make and render a return to the assistant assessor of the dis trict in which he re-iiles of the amount of income, gains, and proiits of any minor or person tor whom he acts. The President has appointed two ex t'ongressmen ? Howells of iowa and Feiris ot New York? commissioners to audit the claims of southern loyalists. The Iiukiiix ntiU the Cut ted KtnteH Mail tu Kentucky- A Colored MiuN Asc.it TlirenteneU. I ' iOnlsvllie Cor. "i the Clnciana't Gazette.] About live weeks ago Mr. Gibson, a col ored mail agent, was placed in charge of the United States mail on the Louisville, Frankfort and Lexington railroad. On his I second trip he was attacked at North lien- 1 son, a station only a few miles west of Frankfort, by a baud of armed men, out? of whom entered the mail car, grappled with the agent, and tried to eject him from the ear. In this he did not succeed, however, and, after beating the audit. over the head, the scoundrel jumped from the car. Threats were made that if Gibson returned to that section in the capacity of mail agcut he would be summarily dealt with. On the following day the superintendent of the mail service of this district placed Colonel Green, a white man, in Gibson's place, but in a day or two Gibson was returned to the route with a squad of ten United States soldiers, armed and equipped, as a body guard. Since that time Gibson has con tinued in charge ol the mail between Lex ington and Louisville, the soldiers accom panying him every day. Yesterday it was rumored in Frankfort and vicinity that another attack would be made upon the mail ayent to-day by a party strong enough to "cleau out "the auent* and his body guard." This rumor earned credence, and Gen. E. H. Murrv, United States Marshal for Kentucky, who was in Frankfort last night, telegraphed the fact to C ol. Mark land, superintendent of the mail service, suggesting that a strong guard be placed upon the train to-day. Col. Markland, by the authority of the I'ostmaster-General, ordered the mail dis continued on that route until further or ders. So the train went out at the usual time this morning, but without the colored ageut or his guard, or the mail for the peo ple living along the line. This arrangement leaves Frankfort without any mail facilities either from Louisville or Lexington, ex cept by old round-about stage-coach routes, it is conceded that this will bring the Legislature and the citizens to their senses as quick as any other practicable plan, li is a matter of regret that tin- mail from Louisville to Frank fort can be sent daily, by way of Shel bvville, on the stage, but other towns between Lagrange and Lexington will be less fortunate. The train from Louisville to Frankfort yesterday was boarded at Bagdad by three men, who were evidently members of the gang which was to iuak<- the assault to-day. They were per fect ruffians in their appearance and be havior, and were unreserved iu their denunciations of the Government. They hurrahed for Jell. Davis, and otherwise offered insults to passengers on the traiu. They got off at North Benson, the scene of the ioruier attack on Gibson. It is stated on good authority that the same band of mt n who released Scroggins were in Frank fort last night, ready for any duty, and that the fact was known to the citizens and authorities ; yet nothing was done topic vent them trorn carrying out their evil de signs. Atlanta, Ga., is a prosperous place, evi dently. Last Sunday a new church was opened there. Rev. t)r. Brantly preached. It was announced that the sum of $7,500 was needed to finish paying for the house. Ex-Governor Brown gave $1,000, a Mr. James ?1,000, others $o(M), others $200, and others smaller sums. Jn a short time it was found that the $7,500 had been rnised, and the clerk paid they wanted no more subscriptions. The Nathan Mcbder.? A'eto York , March 8.? Superintendent Kelso, of the police department, in a conversation this evening with representatives of the press, stated that from about six weeks subse quent to the murder of Bonj. Nathan the detectives were convinced that VVrm. For rester was the perpetrator of the crime. A proclamation describing Forrester, and of fering a reward of ?2,50o for his arrest, has been issued. Illinois State Dkbt.? L'hivago, March N.? ]>uringa recent visit of the Illinois State Treasurer at New York, he paid over ?2,COft,000 of the Illinois State debt, which no iv i^nounta to only ?2,400,000, KmrnaBmrnrnrnrnmrnm^mmmmmmamtaimm LOCAL tfXfTEKS. ? ^ . is ? rv The (kuiamMlve C*aeoa I*?t FfJght Senntor Johnston the Konrt^ce. After a protracted and exciting debate in tbe Conservative caucus last night, Hon. John W. Johnston received the nomina tion. Quite a discussion arose on a motion of Mr. wall to change the rules, so that a mnjoritv present should make the nomina tion. Jfris proposition was agreed to; and thereupon Air. Zoph. Turner, 8peaker of the House, moved to proceed with the nomination. Mr. LaVcson, of Tsle of Wi^ht, nominated Mr. Johnston; which nomination was sec onded bv Messrs. Mahood and Turner. Mr. A"bel T. Johnson, of Accomac, nomi nated Mr. rendleton, who was supported by Anderson, of Rockbridge, and Bagwell. Mr. George Walker, of Westmoreland, nominated Mr. R. T. DanleL who was seconded by Messr*. Poore, Hudgin, and Guy. The first vote, which was not an nounced, stood as follows : Johnston, 63 : Pendleton, 22; il. T. Daniel, 20; and Goode, 1? Mr. Segar voting for the last named gentleman. It was evident from this vote that Mr. Johnstou was to be the choice, and consequently many votes were changed. The tinal vote stood as follows : Johnston, 80 : Pendleton, 16 ; Daniel, 10? 106. An ineffectual attempt was made to make the nomination unanimous ; after which the caucus adjourned. Memorial op Foreign Bondholders.? The following memorial of foreign bond holders was presented to the Senate yester day : ifTo the Honorable the Senate and House of Delegates of the Commonwealth of Vir ginia : IJumoly pboweth your petitioners, for eign holders of the bonds or the State, who have already appeared before your honora ble bodies at your present session in this behalf, beg now humbly to appear to pro test against the adoption" by your honorable bodies of any principle of action which in fact repudiates the present obligation of the State? action such as is suggested by the Committee of Finance report of March 2d instant. Your petitioners respectfullv submit that uiy arbitrary reduction of their bonds as a condition to any payment, is, in fact, a violent sequestration ot their property, and such a palpable violation of the present plighted faith of the State as necessarily renders any new promise of butlittle value. Your petitioners bee humbly to suggest that the arbitrary decision of Virginia to assume only two-thirds of their claims is as indefensible in principle as to fix any other proposition? and, that if the present State constitution and the past action of the Legislature are thus summarily disregarded, it will be difficult to feel any confidence in the future. Your petitioners see with alarm that in the above-proposed plan of the Finance Committee, the deferred portion of the debt is not even covered by any distinct promise that such deferred portion will in fact ever be paid, since a settlement with West Virginia may never (practically) be reached, or if reached, what shall be "con sidered a "Just settlement" is to be de termined by the same authority which now arbitrarily reduces the debt by a third. Your petitioners must humbly beg also, to protest against any action of the kind proposed, as inexpedient, unnecessary, and not desired by your petitioners nor (in their opinion) by any other interest in volved. They would suggest that such a sweeping measure in no wise aids a settle ment between the two States; that it works no relief to Virginia, since the amount of interest to be paid is not less than by another plan, whilst the direct injury to the value of the bonds is great and lrieme. (liable. That, in fact, it is needlessly harsh and unjust to creditors, and ruinously hurtful to the crcdit and prosperity of the State. And your petitioners humbly beg that the expression of their views may be par doned, in consideration of the alarm felt by them at the suggestion of a plan which really sequestrates more than a third of their claims? claims which they have never supposed to be open to question. And, as m duty bound, will ever pray. J. B. Swasey, for himself and others, as named in me morial alreadv before the General Assem bly ot 1871."' The Mahone Investigation Committee This committee met yesterday afternoon, and examined Mr. Mahood, of the Hou-e, From this gentleman's testimony nothing further was adduced. He had had conver sations with Gen. Mahone, and expressed his opinions, hut he had not made, nor did lie know of' any proposition made, to the effect that if General Mahone would cease his opposition to the Pennsylvania bill he would he secured the control of the Peters burs road. Thus far this committee has accomplished nothiug, and we are inclined to the general sentiment that, even were the fact to be discovered that a proposition had been made by the " invaders," and indignantly spurned by the " Kaiser William," nobody would be either benefited or harmed. We would therefore respectfully suggest that if the House should have nothing else for the committee to do, they would instruct them to abandon this subject, and inquire into the next most important subject, which is agricultural in its nature : " Is cats to be trusted?" 01 else, " Which is the most useful about a farm? a swingletrce or a plow-handle?" The solution of these ques tions would shed light upon the inquiring people, whereas the committee now labors in vain. A Man Falls Down a Stairway and Breaks His .Neck.? Jacob Dillman, a dealer in oysters, who resides in Hog alley, south of Cary street, betweeu 17 th and ISth, met with his death yesterday I evening, about G o'clock, by falling down a flight of stairs, in the* fall breaking his neck. From the account which we had of the affair, it seems that Dillman has been addicted to hard drink for a long time. Yesterday he sent for and drank a pint of whiskey, aud, indeed, a bottle-full was found by his side. Dillman had been un well, and attempting to come down stairs, he fell from the top to the bottom, and broke his neck. His wife, who works in the cotton factory in Manchester, and his son, who is employed at Rocketts, were both absent at the time. A little boy \n hom I he had employed came t hroiiyh the alley, ; and found him lying on the ground at the foot of the steps. He at ouce gave the alarm, and Coroner Trent was summoned to view the body, and an examination being had, he deemed an inquest unnecessary, as his death was accounted for. He could hardly have been lying there any length of time, or the discovery would have been sooner made. In his room a sum of money amounting to $28.20 was found. The Bbibkry Investigation. ? The read ers. of the Dispatch have been kept fully advised of the developments before the House committee, who have the investiga tion ol the charges of bribery under their supervision. There was a session of this committee yesterday afternoon, at which Mos>rs. Baitlett, the member from War wick county, aud Teamoh, the Senator from Portsmouth, were examined. A num ber of questions were propounded to both of the witnesses, but they were as ignorant of the matter under consideration as those who were examined the day before. The | examination was concluded early in the afternoon, and the committee aro3e, to meet agaiu on Saturday at 4 P. M. Theodore Thomas.? The announcement that this celebrated leader will ere long be in our midst with his splendid orchestra will surely give pleasure to our lovers ol music. His orchestra is the finest in the country, aud he will be accompanied by Miss M'ehlig, a musical prodigy in her per formances on the piano. Assembly Hall has been rented, and our people may look forward to a magnificent musical entertain ment. Executive.? Governor Walker on yester duy appointed Austin Gray and Parker Crittenden Commissioners of Deeds for Virginia? the former to reside in St. Louis, and the latter to reside in San Francisco. A lire on Tuesday at Leavenworth, Kan ' gas, burned five buildings on Delaware street, involving a loss ot about $25,000 ; only partially insured. The JTew York Assembly has rejected, by a yote of three to one almost, a biu uiaking decoration day and St. Patrick's ! day public holidays. ^VtkanrtA-X*!?.? Tho bid wheeling in* V irginia keeps back the new crop, and prices in consequence remain unsettled : still the spawn is how so far advanced that the pre vailing uncertainty must soon give place to permanent quotations, and the fignres ruling thirty days hence will, In sD proba bility, rule throughout the summer. At present the manufocturersare paying hlgHer S rices than the dealers and speculators are. Is posed to give until they see more of the crop, and their way clear to certain profits. In case of a sudden decline the manu facturer has, of course, the best of the speculator, as he can work up his supply of leaf while the latter must sell again at some price or other. As to the future course of the market, there are two opin ions, at the existence of which we have he fore hinted. The first, held my many who . have l>een, or assert that they have been, throughout the interior of Virginia, and closely scrutinized the crop in growers' hands, is to the effect that the supply of wrappers, either bright or black, is com paratively small in proportion to the total number of hogsheads raised. It is also contended that, owing to the brisk de mand from the West and Canada, prices for the most desirable leaf will be kept ? well up throughout the season. Those holding the second deny that enough Is yet known of the character of the new crop to warrant these conclusions, and are patient- ' ly waiting to see which way " the cat | jumps." Whichever of these theories may . be correct, it is certain that while black wrappers may be scarce and bright high, certain inferior grades of leaf were never so abundant and cheap as they are at pres ent. As we have said, by the early part of April the question of high or low prices will be settled, and it will then be safe to invest either for speculation or consump tion.? New York Tobacco Leaf .

The circumstances becoming known to the neighbors, the police were sent for, and the doctor taken into custody. The event has caused great sadness among the acquaintances of the family, by whom the doctor and his wife were highly esteemed.
