St. Louis, February 10.?In the trial
of General Babcoek to-day William J.
Bassctt, a gauger in the King, testified as
to the operations which came under his
observation in 1874 and the winter and
spring of 1875. He acknowledged that,
acting under instructions f/orn his superior
officers, he connived at frauds while
at Bevis & Frazer's rectifying house, and
used to find, on Saturday evenings, an
envelope in his ovircoat pocket containing
from $100 to $200 Whisky
barrel heads with the gaugers
stamps upon them were then
produced in court, and' the stub book
from which the stamps were taken. In
: comparison it was shown that in each
case the stamp on the barrel registered
the contents as 40} proof gallons, while
the corresponding stub reported only
live proof gallons to the collector lor taxation.
The witness also explained what is
known among the revenue officers as
Form 122, and told how the disposition
of illicit whisky was covered at the rectify
ing houses.
15assett was followed on the stand by
Abljikh Evernt,
who testified that he became the collector
for the ring in August, 1874, and con|
tii:lied to act as such until the seizures in
May, lt>75; the collections during that
time run as follows, each week: Ulrick's
distillery, $1,000 to $2,700; Bingham's,
$500 to $1,000; Jonett's, $550 to $1,100;
Choullan's, $500 to $1,000; Bevis A Fra*
zier's, $1,(H>0 to $2,700; this was coming
down to the spring yf 1875, either late
in February or early in March. Ever'
cat sa'd Joyce once sent him to the sub|
Treasury with a package of $1,000 in
small bills, to go get two $500 bills.
He brought them back and Joyce
put them on an envelope and told him to
lake them across the street and put them
iu the letter box. Witness said he did
so and was asked if he observed the directions
on the letters. Before he coutd
I answer the defense interposed an objec;
tion, claiming that the prosecution were
I now trying to show that Ba'ncock's name
j wa* in one of these letters and that the
! evidence was not competent. .
A l.oiitc Argument Kiisucrf.
Judge Krum said: This evidence is
incompetent, because it is presumptive,
and is intended to show that the envelopes,
or one of the envelopes, was ad
dressed to tho defendant. At this stage
, ot the case it is intended to establish the
conspiracy between the parties at St.
Louis and the defendant; it is the connecting
link in the theory of tho prosecu'
tion. Thus far, the case is barren iu evidence
to show that the defendant had
any connection with the conspiracy in
St. Louis. The naked question ?is
presented that tho defendant did
receive a letter, containing money,
l from the conspiracy. No such presump'
tion can arise now. The evidence of the
witness has in fact no relevancy to the
question, because there is no evidence to
tollow to show that the defendant ever
received tho envelopes, even ;f they were
deposited in the mail box. There is not
a scintilla of evidence before your Honor
or the jury to show, thus far, that the
defendant ever had any connection what"
1 ever with the whisky ring in St. Louis
Therefore there can be no presumptive
evidence that he ever received the en'
Judge Porter?Will Your Honor allow
me to state specifically the grounds of
objection. The rule of law is tins, '-that
where there is a conspiracy that conspiracy
< an be proved by the confessions of the
i conspirators themselves, but the connection
of another party to
the conspiracy must be shown by extra
mania evidence. The declarations,
* written or oral, of conspira:
tors connot bind a third
party; they cannot prove by their acts
I another man's acts No declaration of
! Joyce is evidence against (ion. Babcock.
i 1 learn from the opening remarks of the
District Attorney that he proposes to
show by the witness that Joyce wrote the
same of (ien. Babcock on this letter. It
Joyce had said I intend to send this money
i to Babcock it would be inadmissable;
but this evidence is only a written declaration.
Joyce is no agent of ours. He
i is not entitled to act for us, and no act
! or declaration of his* can bind us. They
cannot give secondary evidence without
| proving the destruction of the primary
| evidence. The question is, is this compc>
j tent evidence? If they had found the let1
ter in General Ba^coek's possession
: the law would not charge him with a
knowledge of its contents, unless he acted
on it. But this is not the case. It is a
letter we never saw, never heard of until
we heard these rumors here about it.
When it is made an act of General Babr
eoek, it must Ihi proved by some other
act of his antecedent to the time it was
1 sent- The evidence is irrelvant on its
i face; there was only a naked inclosure,
but is it clear that the mailing of polluted
' money to your Honor, or to myself would
made us a member of the conspiracy?
We submit that it would not have, and
. we hold that the testimony of the witness
! l- totally irrelevant. Colonel Brodhead,
for the government, said; It is not a
* i question a.- to the conclusiveness of the
i testimony, but as to its competency, and
? that i* all wo claim for it. We claim that

Very strange indeed that he could not
perfect his own iriwithout going
through the motion of sending some of it
to (General Bak. o. k. That theory ol
the defense is decidedly tar fetched.

to show that that money that was
ever placed in those envelopes
might these not have been a dexterous
manipulation through which the witness
was induced to believe the money was put
into the envelopes, but which, in fact,
might have passed into Joyce's pocket,
or else where there is an utter absence of
proof to show that the money was ever
sent for a corrupt purpose. Men cannot
be conjectured into thegallows orjguessed *
inlo the penitentiary. The principal question
is, does the deposit of this envelope
into the mail box prove that it
was ever received?
Judge Dillon?I understand that the
prosecution hald that the deposit of a letter
into the mail box addressed to the
{lereon raises the presumption that the
otter reached its destination.
Judge Storrs?That is what they claim
but we deny that there is auv legal presumption
ot such result.
Judge Dillon?In order to have this
properly put to the jury I would ask the
witness "were there two envelopes?" <
Witness?Yes, sir. <
Judge Dillon?Were they prepaid?
Witness?Yes, sir. <
Judge Dilllon?You say you don't i
know whether they contained ^letters or
Witncss?I should say they did, but as
I saw only the paper and not the writ
ing, I cannot say defini.ely that they
were letters. I

veUpcsin the mail box?

Iho <lii<>Niioii Dlnponcsl OT. j
On reassembling the court tor the af- I
ternoon session, Judge Dillon said: i
The court is prepared to dispose of the I
question raised in the objection to receive
certain evidence. The Judge then re- t
lated the objections as made on theargu- <
ment of counsel for defense, and said: 1
I'pon review of the authorities relating to t
the subject of the admission of letters by i
one person and addressed to another by
name at his known postoflice address, j
prepaid and actually deposited in the
pogtotiice, we concur, both of us, in the
conclusion of adopting the language of j
Chief Justiee Bigely, to wit: "This is ,
evidence tending to show that such letter |
reached their destination, and were re- ,
eeived by persons to whom they were j
addressed.' The Court then proceeded,
i Lis is not a conclusive presumption, j
and it does not even create a legal pre- (
sumption that such letters were actually >
| received. It is simply evidence tending, j
it credited by the jury, to show the re- j
' ceipt ot such letters, a fact in connection ,
with other circumstancer to be referred |
' to the jury, under appropriate instruction,
as its value depends 011 the circumstances
of the particular case. It
is objected also that the ev- |
idence, even if admissible, as |
tending to prove the receipt ot the
money, should be rejected as immaterial
or irrelevant, as having no probable force.
If it was admitted here by the counsel
for the government that this whs all the '
evidence which they expected to produce '
for the purpose of connecting the defen- '
dant with the alleged conspiracy; its eon- '
elusive character standing alone in a case '
where the defendant's mouth is sealed, '
would doubtless lie such as that the \
court would be bound to say to the jury
that it could not he safely made the basis '
ol a conclusion in inculpating the dc- *
i I...).4?ni It iiihv not have la-en actually 1
received. The writer may no', have been 1
known. 11 it* purpose may not have been '
known, or the person who received it 1
may nut have known why it was sent, or
may not have invited it or have
known thitt it was in any way
connected with the guilty purpose
ascribed to it by the prosecution, or any 1
illegal purpose or plan; and as men act 1
ditlcrently under the same circumstances, 1
it is for the jury, under proper instructions
by the court, to look at the letter, 1
if it was sent and received in connection
with all the other evidoncc.
Mr. Everest was then recalled to the 1
stand. lie testified: Col. Joyce handed
me two envelopes, and directed rne to
put them in the letter box, which
1 did. Joyce watched me from the window i
of his otlice. I was fearing him. I could

city and front there to Liverpool. I left
Liverpool last Christmas and arrived in
New York on the 7th ot January. I
never saw General Babcock before this
trial began.
Cross-examined bv Mr. Storrs?I have
been in this city s.nce January 20th. I
cannot tell the month in which 1 mailed
| the letters. It was in either February or
j March, 1875, but I ain't positive.
1 ttiink it was in the latter part of KebI
ruary or early in March. 1 got the
money first from the supervisors office;
Colonel Joyce stood in front of h;s desk
when he put the money in the anrelopes;
the envelopes were on the table when 1
, handed him the two $500 hills; I then s t
i down to his left; I was watching him
attentively; he first took the two.

out of one of the envelopes and

am not positive that he did put it in;
' whether it was the letter directed to
Babcock or Avery that that he put the
bill in 1 can't say; when 1 went to Liver!
pool, 1 had no special business there, except
to get out of the way: I knew I was
j in the whisky ring and w anted to keepjout
| of trouble. I went to London and l'aris
after leaving Liverpool; then went to
| Borne, where 1 received a letter from my
! brother to return home; he did not tell
me it was >afe for me to come, and I did
i ! not think it safe. I mot Col. McKal!

meetinsr was accidental. From New

3 j met District Attorney Dyer; he came

1 I have testified to; I told
3 Col. Dyer since 1 came here
. what 1 would testify to on the stand; I
) told him that I could not be positive as
- to which envelope 1 saw Joyce put the
r $300 bill in. Theie has been no pressure
? to make me remember that there was a
i $500 bill placed in both envelope*. When
r 1 was before the grand jury and on my
> 1 direct examination, 1 said I presumed
31 the second $300 was put in the other en- j
wnisky frauds.
On redirect examination witness ex- J
plained that Joyce was standing up at '
his desk when he put the money in the 4
envelope, and after placing one bank note 1
in one envelope he turned partially *
round, so that the witness saw only part c
of the ether envelope, and did not see ?
the other bill put into it.

identify Ernest as the person, to whom s
he gave them. In fact he rather thought \
Ernest was not the man. t
Edward B. Eraser, of the distillery of
Bevis & Eraser, then took the stand, and r
for the fourth time told his story of the i

cross examination of this witness, and e
nothing whatever relating in anyway to
Babcock. (

During the examination ot Ernest,
particularly when he was tet-tifying about t
the placing ot money in the envelopes (
addressed to Babcock and Avery, there (
was a great sensation in Court, and - the j

but when the cross-examination revealed \

jreemption and homestead claims were
nitiatory on private entries,and locations
urere followed upon lands embraced in the

hat this act shall, as well as the charter |

lready cancelled, aid upon which purhase
money or other consideration has

Whole. Mr. llaskins, of
Mew York, in tho chaij, on the
'oiisitlxr hiiiI Approrin'
(Ion Kill,
iiid was addressed by Mr Hale, of Maine,
lo began bp showing the importance on
he past history of the country, of the
Maintenance of foreign missions, partieuarly
the missions to England during the
ebellion. He alluded to the fact that
loins* than presidents had experience in
he diplomatic service, and it would not
lo in the light of all history of the past to
ast slurs upon diplomacy as a thing
u>t needed and as a thing which should
?o given up.
Mr. Hale was followed by Mr. Lynch,
if Mississippi, and at the conclusion of
lis speech Mr. Blaine arose and addressed
he committee. Every seat in the House j
ind in the gallaries was occupied.
Mr. Tarbox replied to Blaine. He
aid Blaine had shown the spirit of
i savant, still defending criminals. The
peech was intended to vindicate the
inancial policy of the party which has
uled the country, without let or hind ance,
since the flowers of peace liHd
blossomed on the couutrv, arid was an at- i
.erupted impeachment of the political
icts of that party, which, since that time, {
las had no power at all in the councils
of the nation. The substance
I'd marrow of the speech just delivered
lad more relation to a near political j
jvent of great importance to persons
md parties than it had to the elucidation
jf any problem of public policy, needful
in the aid of legislation. He proceeded
Lo defend the Democratic party from the
charge made by Blaine that that party in ,
ln?18 bad proposed an almost illimitable
issue of lcirai tender notes, and he said
that that charge was so unjust, so monstrous,
and >o unoandid that be did not
tare to characterize it further, lest be
should exceed the limits set by decorum
r?f debate. The allusion he supposed
was to a resolution in the Democratic
national platform in l&f?8, in regard to
the payment of certain parts ol the public
debt with greenbacks, and be proceeded
to explain the meaning of the
resolution, and to defend it by the p?!it- j
eal record of events. As to the charge
made bv Blaine, of there being an alliance
between the Democratic party of
the North, and of the .South, he admitted
that there wa? such an alliance, and
he asserted that whatever peril that alliance
might threaten to the liepubl can
party, there was linked with it
,"o l.leiucnt of Evil to Itar Public Wrl
fn rr
of the country; that alliance hai no
meaner object than the restoration of the
Union on a basis of loyalty and constitutional
law. The representatives of the
South were not invited here as interiors,
but as peers and equals; equally honored
and equally respected in the council
chamber of the common government.
That league of amity was so firmly seated
that it was beyond the power of political
ambition or political malignity to
break it. So far as the future of the
country was concerned, and so far as
their future action went, the people of
the South were as loyal to the flag
and as loyai t-< the government
as either the gentleman from Maine or
RY II. 1876.
himself. In conclusion he substituted
the following
Problem In Arithmetic;
Gold being at 1 09inf70aud at 1.13 in '76,
how long would it take at the same rate
of progress to reach resumption?
[Laughter.] "When the gentleman from
Maine could elucidate that problem satisfactorily
and snow specie payments as
the result then he [Tarboi] would consider
his proposition, but in the meanwhile
even though Democratic hearthstones
should grow cold, there
was for Democrats no hospitable
warmth at a fireside under his [Blaine's]
political roof tree.
m Uan^ull ohoirman r*f _
mittee on Appropriations, defended the
action of the committee in reporting this
bill. The committee had in no degree
interfered with any of the commercial
interests of the country. The committee
had given more consideration to this flill
than had been given to any similar bill
during his term in Congress. So far as
he was himself concerned, he had given
much more time to its details than his
other duties would properly have permitted.
As to the diplomatic portion of this
bill there were two questions involved.
First, the reduction in salaries. The
other, the abolition or consolidation of
the missions. In regard to the first, he
defended the Committee on the ground
of the necessity of economy, and frugality
as to the consolidation of the South and
American missions. Hero he called attention
to the fact that in 1809 a Kopub
lican House of Representatives had voted
for like consolidation which had only
failed to become a law because of the opposition
of the Senate. As to the mission
to Greece, the Committee had been
informed by the gentleman who had held
the office under Lincoln, that it was utterly
valueless either in a diplomatic
or commercial point of view, and that
there would to as much reason in sending
A minister to Dahomey as to Greece,
The committee had not proposed to interfere
with the mission to Portugal, as
it was necessary to maintain a representative
there for reasons which are manifest
to anybody. He closed by defending
the action of the committee in regard
to China and the South American consulates.
The committee then proceeded to consider
the bill by sections for aniendmonls.
Mr. Crittenden moved to strike
out the paragraph making an appropriation
for the salaries of ministers to
Prance, England, Russia and Germany.
Ho claimed he was as good an economist
as any man on the Democratic side of
the House, but ho believed it would be
more honorable for the nation to abolish
these high offices than to degrade tbem
The salaries of these ministers had been
fixed under a Democratic administration
at $17,000, and certainly no one would
say that the cost of livir.g had decreased
since then. He wacned the gentlemen
on the other side that if they expected to
conciliate the American people by that
kind of economy, they were mistaken.
Congress had been in session for over two
mouths, and what had Congress done? It
had stopped the building of a hospital at
West Point; had taken the additional
rations from three hundred cadets, and
had reduced the compensation of half a
dozed of professors. It had also introduced
a tariff b 11 so radical as to lie
more complicated, vexatious and vicious
than any of the tariffs of the last thirty
years. The motion was rejected.
Mr. Hale moved to amend the paragraph
by increasing the salary of lhuse<
ministers from fourteen to fifteen thousand.
After discussion by Messrs. Hale, Hassan
aud Hoar, the amendment was rejected,
and the salaries of those ministers
are left at $14,000.
No amendment was off-red to the next
paragraph fixing the salaries of the ministers
t<> Spain, Austria, Brazil, Japan
and China at ten thousand, and they
remained thus fixed.
Xlr. Hassan moved to place the Minister
to Italy, whose salary the bill fixed
at $8,000, to $10,(XX). Rejected, and the
mission to Italy stands at $8,000. An
Interchange ?l Clvlllliea
Of debate took place between Mr. I
Springer and Mr. Hale, based on a remark
in Mr. Hale's speech this morning,
at which Mr Springer took offense, and
he intimated, in the course of his comments,
the fact that Mr. Hale <rode on
the avenue with men in high places, or
was the recipient ot the hospitality
of those who plundered the
District, was no evidence
of manhood or integrity in
asmuch as certain persons wno had enjoyed
the same honors were now in the
penitentiary or on their way there.
Mr. Hale explained the remark complained
of, and justiti<-d it on the ground
of Mr. Springer having told yesterday,
an apocryphal anecdote of President Lincoln,
which he [Hale] deemed unfit for
repitition in this House.
M r. Hanks moved to restore the miss < n
to Greece, and spoke in favor of his motion
and in cefense of M r. Head.
Mr. Banks' amendment was rejected,
and there is therefore no provision in the
bill for a mission to Greece.
At this point of the bill the committee
rose arid the House adjourned.

and jurist was found dead this evening

Johnson was tne guest of Gov, Carroll
and dined this afternoon with other gentlemen
at the executive mansion. lie
was found dead in the yard by a servant
Annopalis, February 10-?Mr. John,
son came here last night, to argue the
case of Baker vs. Frick, argued in the
Court of Appeals to-day, and by invitation
of Governor Carroll he became his
guest at the Executive Mansion to-day
Th? Governor invited Chief Justice Bar
ton, of this State, and several other gentlemen
to meet Mr. Johnson at dinner.
They dined about 5 P. m . and
Mr. Johnson appeared ia excellent
spirits and bis usual health, and entertained
the company by his conversation
and relating anecdotes. At dinner he
took one glass of Madeira, and refused
any more. After dinner he suddenly
asked the Governor to take him into the
parlor. He took the Governor's
arm and walked in there and
sat down on the sofa. At
the request of Mr. Johnson theGovemor
rejoined tho guest* at the table. Shortly
alter a servant appeared at the door and,
beckoning the Governor out, told him
Mr. Johnson was lying in the yard on
the stones. Gov. Carroll went immediately
to tho place and faund Mr. Johnson
lying on the cobble stone carriage
way that passes under the porch of the
mansion, close up ta the wall and near
thedoor leading to the basement. He had
evidently gone down from tho steps
and around to the side of the house and
fallen, where be was found. This was
about 8:16 P. If., and the impression is
that he bad been tbere at least half an
hour, lie was then dead, and was bleeding
profusely Irom wounds on the right
side of the head and face. His body
was 11 once removed into the basement
room, and physicians summoned. Dr. W.
G. Tuck was the first to arrive, and after
examining the body pronounced life extinct.
I)rs. Kid.ent and Cloude arrived
afterwards. There are two large wounds
on the right side of the forehead, two
fractures of the skull from the upper
portion of the forehead to the eyebrow,
dislocation of the fingers of the led hand,
and cuts and bruises on the hands and
legs. Physicians are examining the body
to determine the cause of his death.
Mr. Johnson would have been 80 year*
old next May.

Brooklyn, February 10.?At a mooting
of the Plymouth Church Committee
to-night, Henry C. Bo wen, who had
been summoned to appear and testify as
to the fac'.s known to him in reference to
the charge against llenry Ward Beeeher,
read a statement in which he alluded to
the unfairness and irregularities of tho
procoodure, but said that, as he wished to

be would make tho following

appear, with our witnesses, and
beforo whom 1 will consent,
witlieut any reserve whatever, and
as soon as they can meet, to give in
full this evidence, which has led me to
to say that I have no doubt Mr. Beecher
is guiltv of adultery, hypocrisy and purjury.

they shall fully consider the questions
which you seem to have bofo.-e you.

Beecher and whetbor I arn now justified

you call infamous allegation* and insinuations

your demand for a reply to Mr. White's
"grievances," 1 am willing to abide by
the censure or approval of such a bod v
of men, if Mr. Beecher and Plymouth
Church will also submit to their decision.
I reaffirm everything I have stated
about Henry ,Ward Beecher in
my previous communication to
you, and 1 am ready to substtntiate
it before such a tribunal.
Very respectfully,
Henry C. Bowen.
The committee decided not to ac cpt
Bowen'* proposition, because it was not
a case between Beecher and Bowen, but
a case between Plymouth Church and
Bowen, and should not be withdrawn
froin the charch and taken before
Bowen said it appeared that he was
not on trial before them, and protested
against tbe justice of summoning him
for trial and expecting him to answer
on such short notice. He a*k?<J
tor ten days in which to consult tbe proper
diirumenti. data and memoranda
referring to the ease. At the end ol that
time he would appear 'before them and
?n-w< r any questions that might be propoped
to him. He requested copies of
the charges and specification* to be furnished
him. He was ready at any moment
to answer any question which referred
to essential facta, only he was n't
ready for trial. After consultation, the
following resolutions were adopted by
the committee:
First?The committee decline to accede
to Mr. Bowcn's request for further
.Second?That they now urge bim to
; state any facta in his possession in support
of the allegations that he has made
j affecting the character of our pastor.
Third?That if he now decline to
atate such facts, we shall, to morrow
evening, report to the church '.he action
which has been taken and ask for in1
struct ions.
Mr. Bo wen then said that as the eamrnittee
refused to giye him the necessary
time to prepare a reply, be must witfcdraw.
He then read the following paper:
"Hal you adopted my answer to Mr.
White and then invited me as a fellowmember,
in the interests of the purity of
the Cburcb. to state the facts to which I
referred, that you mignt know
whether or not the puv>r was a
