The eastward bound passonger (rain bad pnUed out of the depot, and was ratUiug through the yard, the beU riigiag merrily. Major Car panter stood within the depot axi Kr. Hoxsie was watching the tit receding train. The request was suflcleut for Mr. Hoxsie to act upon, although ignorant of the reason, and a freight engine stand lrjnear by, shrieked shrilly at the engineer of the passongor train, and the alarm was taken np by the other engines in the yard, while the train. was motioned down by every employe of the company lu the vicinity, end In thirty seconds It had come to a stop, to the won derment of the passengers and the curiosity of the engiueer.

HTkeCaUrdJadeCrait WiKea," The CSriidre Rrnarks. Washinotox, Iec. The At torney (joueral to-lay seut a tele gram to United Slates Attorney Drer. at St. tout, saving : - "That advices had reached him to the effect that Hoecial Counoel Hendersou had, in the course of the Avcrv trial, made an attack upon the rremident, and aaauring the l ulled mates Attorney that the Department will not continue to pay special couuscl for tbUkind of service." The supponllioa is, that plenty of "this kind of service" can be obtained free, gratis. Special Counsel Henderson was accordingly "dropped ;" he saying that "if Grant conhl stand it, he could ; that he thonght he won sincere when he said: 'Let no guilty man escape.' " It is snpjMMed that U. S. District Attoruoy Dyer, who has unearth- eil this monitur fraud, will likely follow. The following extract, from Mr. ienderson't seech in the Avery , contains the "reflections up- 'resident," to which refor matio in the dispatches from the AttdKpey General ; This Is UieJdot upou our Gov ernment, tliafSt Ih pOMiblo for suen things to exisrm4ia not cxit in englanu, r ranee, or any other civilized Government, but are peculiar to our boasted republic. It is party, party, party that damns our country, and be who has the nerve to resist the be hests of party is worthy of more credit than the bravest of old Ne man soldiers. Under the name of party every fraud and infamy wlthm the range of possibilities are perpetrated. It Is to be hoped and prayed that the time Is coming whea a man who has the imperious force of character to resist the dictates of party will be looked up to as a nero. nut we may go to the bottom corruption may feast In all onr institutions, and our na tion may decay and fall boforo we learn this grind truth. I respect party when It Is composed of hon est men, organised for honest pur poses ; out wnen u is composed of mon bauded toirother to toorncrrnte frauds upon the Government, or to serve mo personal ends of lift leaders, thcu away with all. I'll none of It. What right hod Duhcock to so to Douglas to induce him to with draw his agents?. DouglaKS wa itlacad In his position to sco that tho ruvenuo laws of the Govern ment were properly enforced. What bttfinoM.theii, had Douglas with him ? , When an ollkiul goes Into office, ho should bofieo aml independent of all influences ex cept that of law, and if he reeog-1 nlzo any other Hunter, then this! Government is tumhllntr down. What right has tho President to interfere with CouiiultuiiouerDoiig lass In tho proper dUcharge of hin duties, or with tho Treasurer? none; ana Douglass siiowod n la mentable Wenknexit of character when he listened to llubeonk's dictates. Ho should either have iiiHistcd that bis orders as they ex luted bo ciui'lctl out. or sh'on Id have resigned his office. Douglass now dotormincd thai Ms only course was to change the bupervlaors all over tho country, ana this would necessarily expone frauds. On January 20, 1876, he tolographed Iloag: "Von are hereby ordered to report in per- on to Supervisor Sutton, who supersedes McDonald in St. Louis." This was one of the llrnt moves toward the change. On February 3, 1876, a telegram signed "8ylph'' was sent iroin nere to iiauoocK, saying: "Wo have official informa tion mat the enemy weakens. Push tiling." This was Joyc's writing, and the cnomy referred to were thoso, person i who were favoring the chango of Sttpervis ors. A couplo of days later Dong lass telosrauhed brooks : " Tim order telling you to report to Sut ton Is suspended." Now, whv did Dottglnss bond the supvle hna of the knee and permit any intor- icrenee oy uie rrcsmont r This was Douglass' own business, and he stood responsible for it under his official oah. He was bound to listen to no dictation fVnm thn President, Babcock, or any other omccr, ana it was ins duty to see that order was carried out, or to resign. Independent Bntohfir Chop!
