- Hok. C. Foster will except our
thanka for important docnments.
Thi Governor's Inaugural u sliort
and will not weary the reader. Its
brevity is wonderfal.
The GeYer.1 Aasembfy cunrussed
the vote of tbe State on the 8th, and
found it fubnantially the eame u
heretofore reported.
Sktbiff Bkekkak, of. New York,
nd his Deputy, have each beo
fined 1 25a and sentenced to im
prisoment, one month, for complicity
in the escape of Genet. Very good.
but should have been more.
The Cincinnati, Sandusky and
Cleveland B.R, have petitioned in
the Superior Court, for an attach
ment aeainst the property of Rush
E. Sloan, of Sandusky, on a claim of
50,000 received by hinas agent of
tne company.
SzXATCRTHrjRMA.il was re elected
to the United States Senate on the
ltth. He received the full Democra
tic vote. Noves receiving the fall Re
publican strength! One Independent
TOtedforCox. The new term Degins
March 4th, 1875.
Thb name of Attorney General
Williams for Chief Justice, was with
drawn at his own request. The
name of Col. Brestow for Attorney
General was also withdrawn by the
President, Williams consenting to
remain as Attorney General.
However appropriate the appoint
ment of Cushinz to the Supreme
Bench might be, public opinion is
setting strongly against it, and his
confirmation is scarcely probably.
While the talents he possesses may
fit Mm well for other positions, his
age and his heretofore unreliable
character as a politician, are against
nim. From evidence produced up
on his political record, now being
daily more and more exposed, he has
baen "all things to all men."
Withdrawn.
The pressure was too great,
Cushing's name was withdrawn on
the 14th. He will not be Chief Justice
but "can gOto Spain." His "goose was
cooked" thusly : Among the rebel
archives in Washington was found a
letter written by him to Jeff Davis
in 1S61, which was not congenial.
It don't hardly do for la man to ac
enpy both sides of a fence, nor be on
all sides of all questions, as he will
suffer embarrassment sometimes.
A Meeting in favor of cheap trans
portation was held in Washington
on the 10th, in the room of the Ju
diciary Committee of the Hoase. It
was attended by numerous Repre
sentatives, all of whom favored ac
tion, and generally Bpoke In favor of
improvements in rivers and harbors.
The meeting adjourned for two
weeks, and will meet in the room of
the Committee on Railroads and
Casals, before whom there are al
ready projects which will involve an
outlay of $130,000,000, if they
should receive favorable considera
tion by Congress.
A Correspondent to the Cleve
land Herald, under signature of
"Madison," gives the following crop
statistics:
The potato crop this year is 17,
000,000 bushels short of last year,
while the corn crop is 213,000,000
bushels less than last year, and
wheat only 4 per cent, better than
crop of 1872. Last year the oat crop
was about 265,000,000 bushels. It
is 8 per cent less this year, leav
ing a deficit of 21,200,000 bushels.
It is possible there may be a slight
mistake in "Madison's" figures, al
though oats, corn and potatoes are
not so large a crop as last year.
Thb Hocse ob the 13th, took up
the Senate substitute for the Saluy
bill, and strange to say accepted it
without a fight. Huribut, who intro
duced the House bill which the Sen
ate rejected, had evidently been to
see his constituents, and concluded
to accept the substitute without ob
jection. How much more honorable
it would have been for the members
of the House to have come promptly
to the work, in the first place, instead
of placing themselves in an equivocal
position, from which they have only
extricated themselves in a suspici
ous manner at best Possibly they
will soon learn that the voice of the
people is potent and requires will
ing obedience.
We last week gave the report of
the defalcation of the Richland
County Treasurer. Since then an
investigation has been made by L.
J. Tracy, appointed by the Court for
the purpose, and his report is as fol
lows, showing a defalcation of $111,

Mansfield, O., Jan. 6, 1874.
n the 8th.. the Sen-
ate had the Salary Bill badly, but
aside from defeating several propos
ed amendment, did aothing but lay
on the table a telrgram from the
McEncry Legislature of Lousiana.
In the House the Naval Appropria
tion Bill took up mofct of the day.
The bill appropriates $16,505,856,
which Beck and Archer thought was
not sufficient that a deficiency
would be created. It is probably
as much as ought to be expended.
On the 9th., in the Senate, memo
rial and petitions to amend the
Bankrupt law were received, and a
bill to relieve aged and infirm pre
emption settlers passed. . An appro
priation of $2,000 for Legislative ex
penses of Colorado tas made. The
National Bank Billwai debated, and
the salary Bill " drew it slowr length
along." In the llue uothing
special was done, except the pro
nunciation of eulogies upon the
death of Hon. John Brooks, by Cox,
Wood and others; and ou the death of
Hon. W. D. Foster, by Waldron and
Williams. The 10th., was debate
day in the House.
On Monday the Senate went to
work on the Salary Bill in earnest
and after rejecting other amend
ments, finally came to actjon on
Conkling's substitute for the House
Bill, which was passed by a vote of
50 to 8. The substitute is as fol
lows :
"An Act Repealing tie Increase in Salaries of
Members sj Vongress sma outer opicers:
Bb it exactsd, c laat to much of the
act of March 30,1873, entitled "an act making
appropriation for the Legislative, Executive
and Judicial expense of the Government for
tbe year ending June 30, 1874," a provide
for tne increase of compensation of public of
ficer and employe, whether Member of Con
gress, Delegate or others, except the Prasi
dent of the United State and Justice of th
Supreme Court, be. and th same is, hereby
repealed; the salaries, compensations, and al
lowances of all said persons, except the afore
said, shall be fixed by (he law in force at the
time of the passage of said act, provided that
no mileage be allowed for the first session of
the Forty-Third Congress; that all money ap
propriated as compensation to Member of
the Forty-Socond Co ogress in excess of the
mileage aad allowances fixed by law at the
commencement of said Congress, and which
shall not hare been drawn by the member
of said Congress, respectively, or whioh, hav
ing been drawn, have been returned in form
to the United State, are hereby covered into
tbe Treasury ef the United States, and are
declared to be the moneys of tbe United States,
absolutely tbe lame a if they had never been
appropriated a aforesaid."
In the House the most important
acPwas tbe passage of resolution of
fered by Mr. Holraan, who moved to
suspend the rules and adopt a reso
lution declaring that in the judgment
of the House there is no necessity
fr increase taxation or to increase
tbe public debt by a further loan, if
there shall be economy In public
expenditures; and that in view of
the condition of the National finan
ces, the House will reduce the ap
propriations and public expenditures
(o the lowest point consistent with
the proper administration of public
affairs. The rules were suspended
and the resolution adoted yeas; 22,
nays, 3.
In the Senate on the 13th, the
question of preparing for a resump
tion of specie payment came up and
Frelinghuysen addressed the Senate
upon that subject. Senator Gordon
introduced a resolution inquiring in
to the expediency of a reduction of
the salaries of all officers of the)army
and navy, receiving over $5000 per
annum.
In the House considerable discus
sion occured on an amendment to
the Naval Appropriation Bill, which
prohibited any one in authority from
authorizing or contracting for ex-
penditmtres beyond amounts appro
priated, or in other words to avoid
deficiency bills. It lies over for fu
ture action.
The Register's Figures.
A few weeks ago the Sandusky
Register published the following
article:
The total expenditure of Sandusky county,
for printing and stationery for the year end
ing September 30th, 1873. were $5,589.01, The
total amount for Erie county, for the same
time, wa $1,636.69: Ferhape the Messenger
can infers us what causes this extraordinary
difference. Take another item: Sandusky
eounty paid it Prosecuting Attorney and for
extra legal service the sum of $1,483. Erie
county paid for the aaane service tbe sum of
$176.08. Take another item: Sandusky coan
ty paid $3,100,93 for juror in both courts,
Erie county paid . $1,963.94. Take
another item: Sandusky county paid
$660.25. Election fees; Erie county
paid $348.60 Election fees. Take another
i-em: Sandusky county paid $1,318.96 Justice's
costs; Erie eounty paid for similar service
$414.1L Take another item: Sandusky coun
ty paid eenstable' fee $1,401.50; Erie eounty
paid $182.00. Take another item: Sandusky
county paid for janitor $500; Erie oonnty paid
$155.60. Take another item: Sandusky coun
ty paid $1,427.72 for boarding prisoner;
Erie oonnty paid $479.05. Take another item;
Sandusky eounty paid hrifTs costs in crimi
nal cases $8SS,7l; Erie eounty paid $191.89.
Take another item: Sandusky county paid
clerk' cost in criminal cases $1,626.80; Erie
oounty paid $179.16. It cost Sandusky county
$905,03 to heat and light it Court House
Erie eounty $354.76. These are suggestive fig
ures tor the voters and tax payers of Sandusky
county. They may be oil right, bat they have
a suspicious "look" which tax payers will no
tice. The difference will be seen when w state
that th total expenditure of Erie county for
th last fiscal year were $13,759.28 lee than
the total ordinary expenditures ef Sanduiky
county. Another fact 1 significant. The
population of Erie county by the last census
was 2,685 greater than that of Sandusky oonn
ty. Are we to account for this large difference
in the expense of the two counties by the fact
that Sandusky county is under the control of
Democrats, and Erie under the control of Re
publicans It is, to be ui not fashionable
to talk of these little affairs which come imme
diately home to hi own pockets.
We have waited several weeks in
order to give our contemporary an
opportunity to reply to the Regis
ter's article, but as he has not done
so we submit it for the consideration
of the Commissioners. But while
we are about it propose to look at
our neighbor's figures just a trifle.
The figures for printing and sta
tionary are large, and should receive
attention. By a comparison with
the previous year we find thpy are
less by 1572.79 cents than they were
in 1872, but there is room for more
cutting down, ahd the Commission
ers should apply the pruning knife.
By a comparison of Erie county's
figures, for the same two years, it is
found that Erie has increased her
figures 1320.97.
The fees for Prosecuting Attorney
ia Erie county are very low, so low,
in fact that we wonder they are able
to secure a lawyer of any ability to
fill the position ; while ours are too
high. Erie paid $100 for assistants
for the Prosecutor, while Sandusky
paid $646.50, all of which shows
that the assistants here are men of
ability.
In 1872 Erie county paid $2,820.05
for jurors or nearly $1,000 more than
in 1S73, which shows that in differ
ent years there will be differences iu
cost.
There is considerable difference in
the cost of election leturns. In this
county, however, there were special
railroad elections in four townships,
which no doubt, added to the cost
Erie had those in 1872, wheu it paid
out only $172 10. In 1873 it paid
for the same service $348.60, or
more than double what it paid in
1872, which would lead to the inter
rogatory why is this thus ?
There is a great difference in the
amount of Justice's cost9, which in
dicates that our Justices must have
had something to do, while tbose of
Erie had nothing, comparatively. It
may speak well for tho morality of
Erie or ill for the morals of ban
dusky. The Commissioners should
look into it. But Erie paid $149.52
more in 1873 than in 1872, an indi
cation of improving business on the
part of its J ustices.
The difference in the cost of keep
ing prisoners may have been owing
to the number kept, or the superior
accommodations. And the difference
in Clerk's fees nity have originated
in the number of cases tried. But
this is not so clear. Erie paid
$765.25 for witness fees in criminal
cases, while Sandueky paid $935.67.
Looking at Erie's account for 1872,
we find it paid $93436 for fees of
witnesses in criminal eases, yet did
not, according to that exhibit, pay
any fees to either Sheriff or Clsrk.
Did it havea Sheriff or Clerk that
year ? Or, did they work for noth
ing? Or, did they get their fees
under some other head ; or. how
did they manage it ? Our Commis
sioners should obtain the secret
The account shows considerable
difference in the heating and light
ing of court house and jail. The
difference in lighting is occasioned
by the fact that night sessions have
been held at every term of our court,
while the gas bill of $27.50 for Erie
would not indicate that their court
held any night sessions. In 1872
our fuel bill was $374,10. - In 1873
it was $595.50, which shows too
much difference.
And now, having examined the
Register figures to a certain extent,
let us go a step further. In 1872
Erie paid $543.98 coats in lunacy
cases, and in 1873 $773.21 total
$1,317.19. Sandusky paid in 1872
$391.60, and in 1873 $408.55 total
$700.15, but little over half paid by
Erie. Take another item : Erie
paid to her Infirmary Director
$500.01 in 1873, Sandusky paid
$18.50. Take another item. In 1872
Erie paid her Board of Equalization
$192, Sandusky paid $50. In 1873
Erie paid for same service $218, and
Sandusky paid $175. Take another
item : - Erie County Commissioners
were in session forty-eight days, in
1872, and drew $657.15. In 1873
they were in session forty-two days,
and drew $837.05, or $180 more for
six dys less service. For thirty
nine days which our Commissioners
were ia session, in 1873, they drew
$SS about tbe same rate of their
Erie brethren ! Take another item :
In 1S72 Erie paid its Coroner
$570.10; in 1873 it paid him $304.87.
Sandusky paid nothing either year.
We would not intimate, however,
that the Erie County Coroner did
not earn his fees. Take another
item : In 1872 the total disburse
ments of Erie county were $190,454.-
80. Ia 1S73 they were $268,448.69
showing an increase of $77,993,89
In 1872 the total disburements of
Sandusky County were $195,697.29,
In 1873 they were $177,720.40
showing a decrease of $17,976,
We will not repeat brother Mack's
argument, but simply intimate that
it is not always safe to stir up
figures. Had he pursued his inves
tigations further he would hardly
have ventured on a learned contrast
But now as to his statement " that
the total expenditures of Erie
county for the last fiscal year were
$13,759.28 less than the total ordin
ary expenditures of Sandusky coun
ty." He is certainly an able mathe
matician to make so great a disco v
ery. Let us see. The total receipts
of Erie county for the fiscal year
ending Sept. 16th, 1873, according
to Auditor Merry, were $289,767.33,
Of this amount there were left in
the treasury $21,218.64, showing the
total disbursements to have been
$268,44S.69. Tbe total receipts of
Sandusky county for the fiscal year
ending Sept. 2, 1873, according to
Auditor Gurst, were $195,793.23, of
which there wis a balance of $18,-
072.S3, showing the total disburse
ments cf Sandusky county to have
been $177,720.40 or instead of be
ing $13,759.28 more than Erie,
the expenditures of Eric were
$90,728.29 more than those of San
dusky county. As Mack's figures
have gone the rounds of the press to
the disparagement of this county,
he will probably be honorable enough
to make this correction.. He may
aver that he meant that the county
fund showed that difference. It
does not, though it ebows too
much difference. The expenses
of the county fund of Sandus
ky were $31,799.23 ; those of
Erie $20.829.76 a difference of
$10,969.47 against Sandusky ceunty,
But as he said " the total expendi
tures of Erie county," he must ac
cept the result, and it is a rather
bad showing for his county, and
rather too great a difference to be
accounted for by those 2,685 inhabit
ants. .

know that of the $17,976.89, de
crease in ur county expenses dur

It is also encouraging to know that)
the city ana village mm-uieuucoo w ;
our county has been reduced $20,000
In the meanwhile Erie county n
increased her indebtedness, in that
respect, $10,833.34. Ttke it all in
all we do not see that Mack has any
thing to gloat ever, and we .would
suggest that if he can manage to
run hi9 own county successfully he
had better be content, and allow ;he
rest of the district to lake care of
itself. The field is too extensive for
him, and when ever ho attempts to
straddle it he tpliw.
The Register's Figures. Inauguration of Gov. Allen
A Gala Day for the Democracy
Columbus, Jakcart 12. The day
opens auspiciously. Great multi
tudes are aheady crowding the
streets.
When the procession from the
Senate reached the terrace, it was a
solid mass of humanity, packed jam
med, ground together, and the
police lost all control over the peo
ple. The seats for members of the
Legislature, etc., had nearly all been
gobbled, and but few succeeded in
securing seats.
Some time was spent in waiting
for Governor Allen. It was impos
sible to force a way through the
crowd, for him. It took a dozen
police fifteen minutes to hew a path
in the crowd, but at last he was seen
coming, and the policemen in front
hammering, crowding and pushing;
the Judges of the supreme Court fol
lowing, Allen and Noyes surrounded
by friends, Allen's white head tower
ing above those around him, around
his neck a red bandana handkerchief.
They finally reahed the platform
amid the shouts of thousands. Sen
ator Potter brought down his gavel,
gorgeous with ribbons, and cal led
the great assemblage to order, but it
did not take to order worth a cent
Rev. E. L. Roxford, a Unaversalist
minister, then made brief prayer, the
multitude the while shouting and
talking and swaying to and fro.
GOVEHSOR NOTES' INTRODUCTION.
Governor Noyes then came for
ward and said :
Gentlemen and Fellow Citizens:
I have the honor of introducing to
you a gentleman long distinguished
in the history of his eountry and now
called upea by sovereign people to
preside over the interests of this
State the Hon. William Allen.
Applause.
THE INAUGURAL.
Governor-elect Allen then took the
oath of office, it being administered
by Chief Justice White. He then
proceeded to deliver the following
address in a very labored and slow
manner:
Gentlemen of the General Assembly.
The events of October have made
it my duty to appear before you, and
in your presence, to take the oath
prescribed to the Cbicf Executive
officer of the State.
I have taken the oath, and shall
earnestly seek to perform the prom
ises it exacts.
At the opening of your session, my
predecessor, in his annual message,
submitted to you a general statement
of the condition of the several ex
ecutive departments of the Govern
ment He likewise made such Bug
gestions as seemed to him necessary
and proper.
If at any time during your session,
tbe public interests should in my
judgment, require me to do so, I will
submit to you some additional Bug
gestions in the form of a special
message.
The Constitutional Convention,
now in session, will no doubt com
plete its important labors and sub
mit the result for ratification by the
people during the current year.
Should such ratification be ob
tained, your next session will be one
of extraordinary labor. You will
be required to revise the whole body
of the general laws of the State, and
by appropriate modifications, adjust
those laws to the requirements of the
new Constitution.
For these reasons, you may deem
it unnecessary to alter in any very
material particulars, the existing
laws, at your present session.
But there are some legislative acts
which will, -! believe, attract your im
mediate attention. These are the
acts by which taxes are imposed and
appropriations made. Jven 11 yon
were now convened under ordinary
circumstances, you would, I believe,
feel it to be your duty to reduce ex
isting taxes and appropriations; for
it is evident to all men that the in
crease of taxes and public expend!
ture has for some years past been
much beyond the actual and rational
necessities of the public service.
But, gentlemen, you are now con
vened under ordinary circumstances
A few months ago, that undefinable
but tremendous power, called a mon
ey panic imparted a violent shock to
the whole industrial and property
system oi tne country.
The well considered plans and cal
culations of all men engaged in active
business or in the exertion of active
labor, were suddenly and thoroughly
deranged. In the universal business
anarchy that ensued, the minds of
of men became more or less bewil
dered, so that few among them were
able distinctly to see their way, or
know what to do or what to omit,
even through the brief futurity of a
single week. All values and all in
comes were instantly and deeply de
pressed. There was not a farmer, a
manufacturer, a merchant, a mechan
ic or a laborer, who did not feel that
he was less able to meet his engage
ments, or pay his taxes, than he had
before. The distressful effect of this
state of things was felt by all, but it
was more grievously felt by the great
body or the laboring people, because
it touched them at the vital point of
subsistence, many or these men
were unable to find that regular and
remunerative employment so essen
tial to their well-being, while some
of them, especially in the large towns
and cities, would have suffered for
the want of the nutriment upon
which the continuance of life de
pends, but for that prompt humanity
and charity so characteristic of, and
honorable to the whole American
people. -
It is in the midst of this condition
of things that yon are now convened
and it is manifestly the duty
of the Legislature of the State
to afford the only relief which it has
the constitutional power to afford, by
the reduction of the public taxes, in
j
proportion to the reduced ability of
the people to pay.
Yet, this cannot be done without
at the same time reducing the expen
ditures of the state government down
to the very last dollar comparatiblc
with the maintenance of the public
credit of the state, and the efficient
working of that of the state goven
in en t, under tbe ever present sense
of necessary economy. I do not
mean that vague and mere verbal
economy which public men arc so
read y to profess with regard to pub
lie expenditures I mean that earn
est and inexorable economy, which
proclaims its existence by accom
plished facts.
In tho prodigality of the past, you
will find abundant reasons for frugality
in the future.
I close these brief observation by
returning my thanks to the people of
tbe State for that expression or their
goods will and pleasure which brings
me before you.
I thank you Geutlemen ol the Gen
eral Assembly, and our fellow citi
zens here convened, for the respect
ful attention with which I have heard
and I thank my predecessor for the
courtesy and urbanity which he has
extended towards me since my arri
val in this city; when the first time
had the pleasure ormasing his per
sonal acquaintance.
A DISGRACEFUL INTERRUPTION.
During the progress of its delivery,
Allen was interupted by a man, a
member of the Constitutional Con
vention, in a sadly intoxicated con
dition, coming out or a window in
the Senate Chamber and waving his
hat to the crowd and yelled in thun
der tones. "Governor Allen!" The
Governor stopped, and for once the
crowd became 6ilent and the unhap
py man smiled and said: "Governor
Allen, it must be done. men ioi
lowed shouts of "Take him out," and,
"Who is he?'' There was danger for
a moment of his falling out of the
window, but several men made a rush
for him and by force pulled him
down to the Senate floor out of sight
and the Governor continued and
closed.
THE GRAND FINALE.
The Democracy let itself loose for
a while, then went up cries for rtoyes,
This gentleman then came forward
and said: "We are in the habit of
carrying out the programme here,
and I am not down on it tor a speech,
lam the retiring, not the rising sun,
of the occasion. I Great merriment
The new Governor then went through
a painful process of hand shaking,
and tbe crowd began melting away,
Allen then went to the Governor's
t'Uieo and took formal possession
The Senators and Representatives
adjourned to the senate Chamber,
where the oath was administered to
Lieutenant Governor Hart The
Treasurer, Attorney General and oth
er officers elect took their oath of of
fice in their various ofices, and the
grand inaugration of a Democratic
Governor was at an end.
The nomination of Hon. Caleb
Cushing for Chief J ustice, was alto
gether unanticipated by that gentle
man, and as may be supposed cre
ated quite a sensation in tho Sen
ate where it had also not been ex
pected. Mnch objection exists as
to his confirmation, in the Senate;
and throughout the country, while
he is recognized as a man of great
ability and great learning, he is re
garded as too old for the position,
being 73 this month. The press
generally think him better fitted for
Attorney General or a Foreign Min
ister than for Chief Justice. His
confirmation, however, is probable,
As specimens or tbe feeling upon
the subject we give a Washington
special to the Chicago Times:
The nomination was received with disgust
by the supreme Court J ustices, and the mem
ber of the liar aeciare tnat Mr. uu&bing was
interested now in oue-third of the eases that
wauld eome before him for argument. The
President, it appear, was so nattered by the
war Cushing's name was received for the
Spanish mission, that he thought the country
would De quite as weu ucceied by lurtnerpro
motioe him.
Although be voted for Grant last fall in Vir
ginia, and claim that state therefore as hi
residence, he is not Tegarded altogether as
iiepnbucan el gooa standing in th true party
seiue. Almost any one of those named by
current gossip for the position, would haT
been more acceptable to tne leading senator.
Still, th imprenaion seamed to be that the new
situation would be accepted, and Ur. Cushing
confirmed. Hi nomination was subsequently
referred, ia sztcutire session, to the J udiciary
committee.
A special to the Cincinnati Gazette aayc
When the Senate went into Executive ses
sion there was a desire on the part of a few
Senators to con&rm him without a reference,
but this proposition excited so much oppoaiUon
that the nomination was referred to the Judi
ciarr Committee, and members of this Com
mittee were immediately assembled, and after
a abort, consolation reported the nomination
favorably. There was then a move to secure
his immediate confirmation.
Mr. Sumaer favored thi. together with
some of the Bepnblieans, and nearly all the
Democrat. There wa however, not strength
enough to carry the matter through, and th
case was zoroeo over nu Monaay. mere are
a number of Semite: who voted to confirm
Mr. Cushing as Minister to Spain, and who
thought him admirably fitted for that position
who consider his selection a Chiet justice as
a very grave mistake. The chances seem to
be, however, that he will be confirmed early
next week, though his friends to-night consid
er the postponmect of th caa a a very unfa
vorable sign.
Swindle Unearthed.
The latest method of using the
Postoffice Department as a medium
for light in isew lork is by special
Agent Anthony F. Comsiock, of the
Postoffice Department A firm of
swindlers known as 'J. Wright & Co,'
have been advertising extensively
that they kept a store at No. 609
Broadway, New York, for the sale of
"Geneva" watches, which, owing to
their peculiar relations with the
manufacturers, and to their aversion
to charge more than a fair profit up-
on an article, which other -watch
manufacturers did, they could sell at
$4.00 each, or, including a mag
nificent chain, at $5.00. But it is
almost needless to say that for all
money sent to them no watch of any
discription was ever returned; and
"J. Wright df Co" never could be
found by their numerous patrons.
Therein lies the modus operandi of
their swindle. Complaints were
made to the Postoffice Department,
and to Mr. Com stock was assigned
the task of ferreting out the swin
dlers. After nearly a year's work he
has just exposed and arrested the
scoundrels. According to the cir
cular issued by tbe firm all remit
tances were to be sent to "J. Wright
fe Co. jewelers, No. 909 Broadway, or
No. 1 8 Bond street." In all cases
where money was sent them its re
ceipt would be acknowledged in a
lithograph letter which stated that be
ing overrun with orders the customer
must await his turn to be supplied.
The letters of the firm were received
by one William Robinson, at No. 599
Broadway, who had a power of attor
ney from the firm to receive all letters
directed to them. Ia addition to Rob
inson several persons and a small boy
were employed to watch for detect
tives. Bobinson would receive them
from the carrier and immediately
hand them to the boy, so that in case
of an arrest no evideace could be
found upon his person. He would
then proceed to the basement of No.
49 Amity street, the hoy following
him at a distance, and here the let
ters were delivered to " J. Wright," a
floor walker in the Dollar Store,
when these facts had been ascertain
ed, the Postmaster was ordered to
give no more registered letters to J.
Wright ds Co., and the premises No.
49 Amity street were seized, where
ample proof was found to convict
all the parties concerned in the swin
dle. Unlike the victims of the lot
tery and oilier similar swindles, the
dupes of such fellows as these are to
be pitied but for their stupidity;
for did they possess the sense of an
average donkey, the cheat would be
as transparent to them as glass.
Hurlbut's Railroad Bill.
Representative Hurlbutof Illinois.
from the Committee on Railroads
and Canals, will probably, to-morrow,
introduce a bill, the feature of
which he foreshadowed at a meetinz
of the friends of cheap transportation
last night, for the construction of a
double track freight Railway from
New York to Council Bluffs, with
branches to Chicago, and St. Louis.
the Railway to be constructed and op
eraieu unacrtue auspices of the Gen
eral Government, and controlled by
a Board of Government Commission
ers,the rates for the transportation of
cereals to be fixed at five mills per
ton per mile for any d istance over 750
miles, the entire length of the Road
being 1,500. For a shorter distance
than 750 miles, the rates are to be a
little more than five mills per ton per
mile, ine ltoad is to be operated ex
ci usirely as a freight Road, for cereals,
stock and otber productions." Trains
will move at the quickest but most
economical rate of speed, which will
be at least 10 miles an hour.
The cost including the Road is es
timated at 4175,000,000 including the
necessary rolling stock. The Gov
ernment aid suggested is a guarantee
of five per cent interest on $30,000.
000. The capacity of the Road will
be 60,000 tons a day each waj The
Commissioners are to fix the various
rates of transportation, and to make
suitable provision for the care and
safety of freight carried. When the
Road shall earn beyond what is nec
essary for the payment of interest on
capital stock and eight percent div
idend, the rates of freight originally
established are to be reduced.,
