Most e-f the m-mbi-rs were poor men, and those who were able assisted them. Gen. Morgan commenced tue cross examination, when the committee ad journed.

In tiie post tradership 'examination James Trainer testiii-d tnat he ap plied for a teadershrp at Fort. Concha, Texas, and Belknap referied him to Gen. Hedrick. who wanted 6,000. Trainer gave Simon Wolf 250 and gave Congressman Clarke of Texas money, not because be did anything pa-1 ic.i'iir, but because lie was poor and needed it.

Washington, April 7 Houss -The committee ou military affairs reported the bill to ailow Gen. Godfrey Weitzel to accept tho office of tru-tee of the Cincinnati Southern Railroad, pro vided that it do not interfere with the performance of hi1 official duties in the army. After a good deal of dis cussion the bill was rejected yeas 80, nays 128. The'snb committee on naval affairs was ordered t) proceed to Philadel phia to inquire about the alleged frauds m the Philadelphia and League sland navy yard. Forty privaff I ills-were parsed, in c!udinr one relieving the widow ot G-u. L-'Vc'tU'iiuCiin and granting th ri'ht of way to the Hot Springa rail road over tho Hot Springs reservation.

Oonnery, iu charge of the New York-Herald, was before Clvmcr'e committee on the .subject of Bell's tes timony. Bell had a conversation with him, but declined to answer the committee's questions until he had consulted Mr. Bennett, for which pur pose the comm'ttee gave him leave of absence till Tuesday. The sergeant-at arms of the House sent a note to the warden of the jail advising Lim to furnish Hallet Kd bouru'meals at a cost not to exceed one dollar per day, and charge the same to. tho Lou3a of Repreeenta tives. ' ' Tiabcock, in his evidence, stated tnat he saw Bell first at headquarters seek- , ing employment as a detective; he h ard of him next wheu Luckey re turned from St. Louis and uonf for him. He got much information from Bell, which, at the suggestion of his (liabooek's) counsel, Brfll reduced te an affidivir. He gave Beli about one hundred dollars.

The foreign committco have not de cided whether to confine the investi gation of the Emma mine to Schenck's connection with it. Meanwhile Parke's testimony regarding its value is pro gressiug. Washington, April 8. Night The safe burglary examination is be coming very exciting xuis was a conspiracy to rob the safe ol the dis trict attorney an I place the contents in the possession of Columbus Alex ander in a way to connect him crimi nally with the transaction. It was a mock robbery, and the papers taken to Alexander s house were worthless, some ex-official. Those who escaped by a hung jnrj two years ago are teiling the whole story. Whitly im plieates Gen. Babcock. It appears from Whitley's evidence that Columbus Alexander only es- cap ;d hy tne niocK ourgiars mistaK ing the house. They were directed to do their work at 10 o clock but read their instructions 1 o'clock aud could not get any oue at Ah-xai der's house awake to receive the stolen papers. Gen. Babcock gave Whitley assurance of protection should anything ugly happen. Whitley was afraid of the j-jU. Wtutiey uuderstooa tnat the proceedings against himself a-id Har- ingtou after the piry disagreed were dismissed bv order of the President. At all evonts Gen. Babcock iu person took an order ostensibly signed by President Grant aud addressed to the Attorney General directing him to have all proceedings ptopp mI. Ex Attorney General Williams 6utnnioned Mr. Riddle who prosecuted the case as special attorney. He states that the developments made correspond with what was and if Ids theory of t te case. The bill extending the limits within which iudictments may be brought sons to cover thee c isn has passed Cemgress and is in the hands of the President. Wild rumors are in circulation that Bristow has resigned in consequence of Henderson's testimony, in which Brh-tow is niide to say that he had no confidence in the administration. Bris tcw :eft suddenly for Kentncky a few days ago. Some of Bristow's friends say be is only gone for bis he dth, but it is singular he had no idea of such a trip before Henderson testified. Great loose less, to say the least, is developing ir the management of the government printing office. Assistant Secretary Burnham snys Bristow will be here Monday or Tuesday. He went v,est on pressing private business. Secretary Robeson uas bet n in Philadelphia since Thursday. The navol investigation commenced Mon day with closed doors. The committee ou military affairs of the House have called ou Secretary T'lt't for uaw estimates for the ensuing fiscai year. They have Belknap's figures but do not trust them. The committee on expenditures in the Department of Justice unear bed the following: The Solicitor Genera! has a man named Butr in his office v, iio is mainly relied upon in consulta tions. Burr, before the committee, tes tified that when the Parknian-Bropk case wus referred to him he made an adv-rse report aud said the claim should never be passed. Jim Roddy. afe;,t for the claim, came to Burr afterwards and said this claim- must pass; that the President wajuts it to !e done. "How is that,'' said Burr. Roddy took a docnm nt from his pocket igue 1 by U. S. Grant and ad dressed to "Whom it may concern," and gave a good character to Roddy, saying he was a man iu whom perfect trust couid be placed. Burr did not kuow Whether this was really writteu by t-e Prebident or not. It was be lieved by the committee that it was. The subsequent hitory of the claim, it is alleged, shows that it was ouly by the co-operation iu some way cf ex-Assistant Secretary Sawyer that it was finally passed. Sawyer denies that when indicted for complicity in the Parkraan-Brooks & Co. claim he stated that he actrd in the case by the express orders of the President. Among the notable speeches in the House to day was one by Williams of Alabama in favor of the Texas Pacific r lilroad. Clapp, the Con rressionad printer, states that on stcount of theinsutB cienfc appropriation for printing the C. ugies-.ional Records he had avaiied hinist If of the legal privilege to draw from th" Treasury to the amount of fv -f ir 1 of bis bond aud, foliowiuK th" practice of his predec jssors, had nsed the proceeds of sa.es to supply the deficit as the ouly means to pre vent stoppage of the work. CALIFORNIA. San Francisco, April 6 Noon Ten thousand persons attended tho anti Chinese mass meeting. Gen Irwin presided. Resolutions denouncing the recent evils flowing from Chinese im migtatiou were adopted aud local me isures for relief failing the only resource was an appeal to the treaty making power. A delegation was ordered to Washington- to urge immi -diate action. A cordon of police was placed around the Chinese town dar ing the meeting. The Chinese have made large purchases of weapons. The city is quiet. The Ben wood (W. V.) nail ?7orks were burned yesterday, and 500 men were ousted. A fight at a New Orleans republican club meeting resulted in three persons being shot, cne fatally. WILMINGTON, N. C, FRIDAY, ''tie Voting- liawfcr. The tie which bound i c.jrt.i'i De iroiG youiu ro a la vver s omce was served yesterday, ai d his paren s were happy. Thny wanted th j ooy to make a great lawyer. But lm was-getting along too fast.. He pursued his studies with an arder which cast a judicial shadow o'er tho household and cre ated considerable neighbrhood talk. He got trusted for candy and repudi ated tho bil'- on the ground that he was a minor. Ho b.-nght a dag and went into biukruptcy. He borrowed a pair of skates Paul defied the owner ;o get out a writ of lepleviu. He borrowed fifty cents and then made the lender his assignee. But the worst of it was in the fam ily. He had a legal name for almost everything. ar.d his desire was to prove to his pa ents that ho was just absorbing dead loads of law. If he wantml a potato at the dinner, he wouid r maik: "Father, file my claim against that baked poiato, aud 1 It prove the in- d bteduesi tbi afiernoon." If he wauted bread he s.tid: "mother, get on a writ of attachment for ; piece of broad. " it was expected of bun that he vould build the morning fires, but no sooner had he gained aa insight into law tnan tie said to his father: 1 m going to move for a change ol venure unless soma other arrangemtnt ih made. lie moved for a stay of proceedings wheu asdted to go to the grocer, aud if eluded for being out nights he re plied: File your declaration and give me a cnance for a jury trial. When he was in good humor he would sit and regale his mother with stories how Oid Chancery was going up town one night .;nd met Old Equity aud asked him how Decree wan getting along. Oid Pleadings and Exceptions camn along just then, and there was a big fight, and the young lawyer would slap his leg and add: If Indictment had only bc-eu there he'd have whnlcd the whola crowd ! The other day the long-sufferi ig father severed the tie. He was trying to bear up, hoping for reform, but as he sit down to tha tea table his son brightsned up aud remerked: "The defendant will now take the stand and be sworn. Now, sir, did you or did you not come out of a Griswold street saloon at 11 o'clock this morning, wiping your mouth on the back of your hand? Tell the jury all about it sir!" It was a little too much, and the boy doesn't studT law anv more. He plays with a wood vile in the back yard. Connecticut. b'romtha Uo:ton Pc t. It is a cl"au sweep. A political vic tory was never more honestly won or more thoroughly deserved than that with which the democrats of Connecti cut open the centennial campaign. They fought it boldly on a platform embodying tho distinct principles of ha d money and purity iu administra tion, making the issues of the canvass national in their 8cope, and they have ga ned a success encouraging to the party and the people throughout the country, as well as honorable to them selves. The resu ts of yesterday's elec tion, as given in our telegraphic rep:rf, are full of present gratifi cation and of grand promise for the future. The endorsement of Gov. Inger.soir.s administration was expected; the virtue of government conduct' d :n strict democratic priu ciplas of hone-ty and economy has has been sj evident as to gain the empuatic and increasing approval of the public. E'en his opponents ou oedej tee probability of bis re-e,ec-t on, aud the strongest effoits were directed toward influencing the choice of members of the 'Legislature. But here, too, the strong good sense of the people has stood well for the Sta iue uemocratic majority iu that body is increased from last year, and the election of a demo, ratic United States Senator is assured. The simple facts of yesterday's vote speak for themselves. It was the first fair contest of the year over those it-sues which are to come up in the national canvass, aud iu this the de mocracy has won a clean aud complete victory. It announces with such em phasis the popular condemnation of the party whoss iniquities are a daily national disgrace that no comment is necessary. It strengthen? the hands of the party in Congress that is now engaged in the long delayed duty of uncovering the gross corruptions of a republican administration ; and it pro claims the purpose of the people to keep the work of reform iu the hands of tbo.-e who are earnest and hone.-T iu- purpose.

He was n j lly, genial fellow, meant wel1, but had sold too re tiy goods mdow cost nnd to poor customers. His list of debtors dis closed a number that we all kuew had been tabooed from the books of every prudent house in our line, and. with Splnrjit's long experience in the em ploy of one of tho best housed in the trade, we were surprised at this evi dence of fool hardiness. But then he was ' young," i-.nd w -.s 'struggling along," aud tho philanthropic spirits iu our maetii'g thought it best to "give him another chance." B wauted to take back allSplurjit had of his goods unsold at what he, B, had charged him for them. C, D aud E objected that B's goods had advanced iu price, and all the creditors ought to have the ad vantage of that rise, nnd on this em phatic statement twelve of the number at once decided to accept from Splur jit ten cents ou a dollar. This settled that proceeding. Four daj's aftorwareiB, who hafi a large order in hand, receives word to box and ship what is finished and under way, but get out nothing further. Iu vestigatiou discloses that Splurj t hati been to B's customer and underbid him, using the goods lie paid ten cents for, which B wai ted to take back at invoice value as the basis for his esti mate. Spiurjit is a "jolly fellow," you see, and B well, be "ain't up to the times," or else he'd be starting afreuh.with a ten cent scock himself.

From the Saa Francisco Ca.l. As an illustration of th manner io which this people are rap dly usurping nie iraues, it may oe mentioned that a .aember of the firm to Tong Wo, au intelligent Chinese merchant .and a prominent member of the 'Yung Wo Compauy. informed our reportei but a few days ago that the company Lad twelve thousand coolies nuder its charge, five thousand of which num ber were engaged in cigar-making three thousand are boot, shoe and slipper makers, two thousand shirt and clothing makers, and the remaining two thousand are composed of laundry men, domestics, fishermen, vegetable peddlers, &e. A good story is toid of a man who resided here a few years ago, and who had never studied political economy. He ooened an establishment for the manufacture of bird-ciizes. and after a whil did a thriving business. Soon after smart looking Chinaman came alons' and solicited employment, off.iriug his services nt (J cents per day Je.'.s morie3 thau that paid to the white then iu hi employ. Th cage maker and politi cal economist jumped at t!i,j offer, and discharged the white man, satisfying whatever icruples of conscience he might have by making the Chinaman dance around .and make things fly. When the meek-eyed Celestiai had mastered the mysteries of the trade, he astouished his employer by de manding a salary equal to tha received by his predecessor, the white man. The demaud wa3 denied with tome show of indignation, aud the cage maker showed his contempt Tor Chi nese labor by kicking liim - nt of the shop. Within a week afterward an establishment similar to his own was opened ou the opposite side of the street by his discharged coolie, and Dird cages were soid very cheap. The cage maker became a bankrupt, as did several cigar makers who tried the same experiment and met the same fate. Senator Faton'M Speech. United States -Seuator W. W. Eaton spoke in Hartford, Conn., on Friday before last. He is reported as follow?: "He believed but a single departmett of the general cr jvernment ("that of State) had baen administered h, estiy. One of the ablest men iu Washington says He would like to take a contract to carry ou the Treasury Department with 1,500 clerks, instead of 4,000. There are hard working, honest men in the department, who are entitled to our thanks, tho drones are those who bring discredit on the public service. He desired the reporters should say that when they get hold of the whisky ring in New Orleans, and they are after them now, tho White House will be touchel. If one place is rot tener than another it is that depart ment called the Department of Justice he called it the department of injus tice. He knew that no man living could perform all the duties devolving on the Secretary of the Treasury. In his opinion there should be two de partments formed from this one one of public works, one of commerce. Corruption creeps in there without knowledge of the head of (he depart ments, but not iu the State, War and Navy Departments. The head of the Postoffice Department, Mr. Jewell, had got into new business. The de partment had not paid expenses, bnt there were expenses it had paid sending men to Connecticut, to Mis sissippi and Alabama to aid iu carry ing elections. air. Jewell might not know everything that took place in his department, but he ought to. Investi gations are going on in the War and Navy Departments. Oue of the high officers of this Republic is accused of t-elling post traierships. God S'ind him safe deliverance of the accu 8ation if he is fa'sely accused. But look at the influence of such a charge. The eh irges made agains; Martin Van Buren when he was President of the United States did more to break down the Democrat!, party than anything else that had before occurred, b-Cieuse the people began to think their public servants were not holiest. What do they think cow ? One thing is sure the 'third term' is dead. The Democ racy of Connecticut Cf - best punish fraud by putting their strong right hand upon it next Monday." I"i regard to the currency question, Mr. Eaton said: "Iu 1865 we came out of a civil war under a great debt. For eleven years the Repub lican party had the administration of the government, and. it never struck a blow for a convertible currency.

Stories, tnat You Needn't Kelieve Speaking of shooting ducks, says Dr. F. , puts in ; its mind of the great storm that occurred when I lived ou the island. As vou are all well aware, - . i - s our island was near t;asco oav; an awful storm arose, aud was 60 fierce that it irove all the ducks iu the bay into a pond, covering about an acre, near ray house. In feet, bo many ducks crowded into that pond that I could not see a drop of water. Shoo, sa d Smith, didn t yo shoot any of 'em ? That s what 1 was comiug at. x went into the house and got my double bati-eled shot gun, and dis charged both barrels right into the mi ist of theui, but to my astou.shment they all arose into the air, leaving not a solitary duck on the pond. Good gracious ; ion don t say so, said Smith. Di in t you bev any shot in yer gun, or what in thuuder was the trouble ? Well, I was coming to that, said Dr. F. It astonished me at first; but as soon as the ducks rose a few hun dred yards in the uir, and commsuc-'d to separate a little, ducks began to drop, and, whether you believe it or not, I picked up twenty nine barrels of ducks, and it was a poor season for ducks, too. Yon see the ducks were wedged in so solid on the pond that when they arose they carried the dead ones in the air with them, and when they separated, down came the twenty nine barrels of dead ducks. Oh, says Smith, I'm not surprised at that at all, or of the big lot of ducks yer bagged, for it was an awful storm. I remember it well, doctor. I had at that time a corn barn full of corn; on one side of the barn was an open win dow, and on the other side was a knot hole; and during the storm, the wind blew so fierce that it blew every ear of that corn right through the knot-hole, and the hole being just the size of the cob only, theresult was that it shelled every ear, leaving the corn in the barn, and the next morning I found my barn half full of ehelled corn and not a single cob. I had a curiosity to know where the cobs had gone to. I went to the rear of tho bara and followpd the line of those cobs over eleven , miles, and at a distance of about live irtrii u in si in in APRIL 14. 1870. miles a large first-growth pin stood in the track, nnd darn me if wind hadn't driv the colvj into 'ere tree from top to the bottom doctor, that was a- awful ptorm.

Olive L.ogaii Visit to the IVbltt lioilke, Olive Logan, who accompanied Mile.

I have seen ooth your Houses of Par liament here, said Mile. Titiens, soon after her arrival iu Washington, and now my greatest desire is to pay my respects to the President and his fam ily before I return to Europe.

Titiens on Sunday eveniug The Viuger was cordially received by the President aud his family, and after a little chat, Mrs. Col. Grant seated herself at the piano, and accompanied the diva in her varied selections. Ti tiens sang thrice, and her noble voice never rang out with better advantage j thau in the lofty halls of the White House. Everybody waa delighted, and not the iess so because mere was no silliness, no formality. There was one joke during the evening whioh is considered too good to keep. Sail Mrs. Grant to the prima donna: "It must be a proud moment when ati artiste feols that she is holding a great audience enthral'ed banging speli honudon her magnificent utterances." ' Yes, yea," answered Titiens, warm ly, "it is grind; for iustauc , iu 'Norm v tm-ro are certain mo ments when I tWl that the peaple are listening almost breathlessly for the next phrase.

"Woy, my oratory" satd he, and without adding another Word, he broke into a ripple of laugh ter, in which uli joined except Titiens, who seemed va-s'ly puzzled.

Richmond Koqmrer 8 wcia!. NoBFOitK, April 7. Hon. L. H Oiinndler mysteriously disappeared irom ma residence here yesterday morning, while in a state of mecta aberration. It is believed that he has committed 6uicide. Thursday, a ton of Mr. Chandler who holds a clerkship in the office of Collector O. H Russell, in this city Richmond, received a telegram summoning him to Norfolk, as his father had returned home from Wash ingtou in an alarming condition of mind. Yes erday Mr. Russell received a letter from Miss Chaudler who performs the duties of the office of United States pension ageut. of which her father is incumbent announcing the same facts and stating that her father had left his bed Thursday eight in uis nigut-ciocuini?. and Had not since been heard from or found. Aa Mr. Rvusell was one of hia-lbondsmen. she mcidentallv remarked that all of tbe affiirs of the. officn are .correct which Mr. Russell is perfectly satisfied is the case. A. abort time since our Washington telegrams stated that there were in ex istence proofs of defalcation ou the part of Mr. Chondler in his official capacity. An investigation of the matter developed that in the Rose moiety oase. btfore Judge Hughes, the moiety had boeu allowed, and that Mi. Chandler not ouly received his f 66 out of the funds, bat harrowed a por tion of the money from his client. This decree of the court was made under a misapprehension, and Judge Hughes' subsequently made an order rescinding it, and ordering the money to be refunded. Barry, of Norfolk, who received a portion of the moiety, complied, but Mr. Chandler was unable to do so. His friends say that being a man of high sense of honor and of nervous temperament he was stung to desper ation by the publication of articles intimatiugor chargiug him with mis- uppropnatiug funds that came into his hands in the course of practice, unable to refund the amount of the fee, wheu ordered bv the court, his mind was dethroned by the imasinarv disgrace and lie sought relief in self destruction.

Resolntions of the State Committee In the late meeting at Raleiuh of the State Executive Committee of the Conser vative party, the following resolutions wei e unanimously adopted: Eeolved, That this committee in issuh g the call for the State Convention cordially invite the hearty co-operation of all, with out regard to former distinction or per sonal estrangement, who are opposed to the reckless extravagance, glaring corruption and dangerous usurpation of the Radical party. Resolved, That the chairman of the different county organizations be requested to put themselves at once m correspond ence with the Central Executive 'Commit tee, and where there are no county organi zation, prominent members of the party will notify the committee of the fact, and recommend suitable persons to constitute such committee. Resolved, That the basis of representa tion in the State Convention, subject to its ratification, shall be the Merrimon and Caldwell vote, and and that one delegate be allowed for each 100 Democratic votes and an additional one for each fraction over 50 votes. Resolved, That the nomination for offices should be made at a regular convention, cillea tor that purpose, to meet at some central point, of which due and timely notice shall be given. Resolved, That the accusation against W. R. Cox, chairman of this committee, of conspiring to deprive R. M. Norment, of Kobeson county, of bis rights as a citizen at the election for delegates to the consti tutional convention, is, in our opinion, utterly groundless, aud that the institution f proceedings for bis arrest so long alter the alleged offence, and on the eve of the meeting of this committee, is a wretched attempt at intimidation, and but an illus tration of the vile prostitution of law and legal process to the purpose of manufac turing political 'capital, so generally prac ticed throughout the South by the Republi can party. Kenotoed, That we doubt not that all good people of whatever party affiliation, will see tlie base purpose of this unfounded prosecution, and that its investigators, whoever they may prove to be, will receive their reward of condemnation and con tempt. Resolved, That tlie good of the State and interests of the party, which are identical, demands that the personal warfare between the Sentinel and Daily News of this city shall cease and their efforts be united for the overthrow of Radicalism in this State; and that copies of the - resolution be trans mitted by the Secretary to the editors of those papers.
