DATVXS. Mr. Dawes, of Mass., addressed the Houso, and said this was a question that demanded the im mediate attention or the representatives or the people. The people are demanding action and the President and Secretary or the Treasury had both called attention to the Importance or the subject. All recognize the necessity or action, and the whole auestion Is whether the bill herore the House will remedy the evils complained of a lack of money and the Inability or the people to rbtaln employment. The great question Is, why Is it that labor Is out or employment, and that capital is sot willing to put Itself In the hands of labor? His colleague Gen. Butler says it is because you can borrow money on call at three and four per cent, but cannot borrow It for a longer period (or business purposes, and he Gen. Butler said this was be cause there was a fear among business men that Congresswould contract the currency. Mr. Butler, Interrupting, said that his proposi tion had sot been fairly stated. Mr. Dawes objected to being interrupted, and he disputed Mr. Butler's proposition. What capitalists were afraid of was expansion or the currency, and not contraction. Mr. Butler again wanted to protest against being misrepresented. Ho would content himself with that protest, and Mr. Dawes might stake as many misstatements as he chose. Mr. Dawes repeated that the country was afraid ot inflation, and not contraction. That was the reason money could sot be obtained, because the lender was well aware that an Inflated cur rency was not as good as a contracted currency, for It would not In any case purchase as much. His colleague Mr. Butler complained that his position had been unsettled. He then read from Mr. Butler's peech,wbereln ho stated that while money could tie obtained on eall at 3 and 4 per cent, by giving bonds as security, that it could sot be obtained on time on commercial paper ex. eept at a greater rate of interest. The reason Is that the lender rears he will get his money back In a depredated currency. Mr. Butler said he was afraid he could not get it back at all. Mr Dawes replied that that was risk all men ran who loaned money In any case. The proposi tion In this bill was to make that which was a vrar measure of the country a permanent part of the currency or the country. It Is a departure from the entire policy or the Government. It has always been a question whether there Is any power under the Constitution or the United States, except under the war power, to issue Bapermoney. So little did the framersorthe lovemment expect that it would ever be done that they did sot provide ror such Issue at all, and the Supreme Court has said In recent de cisions that great doubts exist whether there Is any power to Issue paper except In the exigencies or a war. That paper was issued at a time or great exigency, all admit, it came out or the groa'ss ana burdens or a life struggle, and It was never Intended that It should be recognised by the country In Its normal condition. He held In his hand the autograph letter or the late Secre tary Chase, In which he transmitted to the then Committee or Ways and Means the first lezal tender bill, and giving his reasons tor the Issue. But Mr. Chase never expected that the Issue would be permanent, but that It would be with drawn as soon as tho condition or the country would admit or it. The country looks to the representatives of the people now to do something to get rid of this paper. He rejoiced that the voices of the Presi dent and Secretary of the Treasury camo up to their aid and demanded ait agghessive roLicr toward these Treasury notes. He was glad their hands were held up to bring this country back to the natural laws or trade. The effect of the bill before the House was to perpetuate this paper currency. Another argument that bad been used by his colleague (Mr. Butler In favor or the bill was that It would save the Government Interest abroad. He Mr. Butler proposes to make the Government a depository, a great national sav ings bank. As the proposod bond Is a bond on call, the greenbacks must be In the Treasury to meet tho bond on demand. The Government Is made a sale depository ror tho Individual, and pays the depositor Interest for the privilege of hplding his money In safety for blm. Tho gentleman from Pennsylvania (Mr. Kcl ley) proposes In his amendment to the bill that of the money paid In ror the bond the Treasury shall take seventy-five per cent, and redeem other bonds or the Government, This would leave Dut about twenty-five per cent, to redeem the three-sixty-five bonds. The greenback was now ten per cent, below par, and ir you make it exchange able lor a bond, you suit the bond to that extent. The tendency could not rail to be to Inflate tho currency, because It would be necessary to add so many moro greenbacks wherewith to redeem the bonds. This proposition was a greater flight or political economy than he had ever before heard or. Was there any fool abroad who would send back here a bond bearing five or six percent. In terest In gold, and take one bearlns; throe sixty five interest in currency? Allludlng to Mr. Butler's statement, that It would cost lour bushels or corn to take one rrom the West to the Atlantic seaboard, Mr. Dawes said be had examined the Price Current and he found that statement erroneous. Corn was 75 cents a bushel In Chicago, and It cost but 20 cents a bushel to take it to the Atlantic seaboard. He regretted that Mr. Butler deemed It necessary to lnlorm the servant girls of Massachusetts or the power they held over the business or that State by informing them that ir they would call in their deposits In the savings banks they would jeopardize the business or the State, lie (Mr. ' Dawes) was not an advocate or any measure that i vouia tena to reduce the rates or any or these i usages, wnicn mis oiu wouia certainly ao. ao policy cculd receive his sanction which would fur- 1 ther reduce this abnormal and strange currency. That policy alone would receive his sanction which would bring our mosey nearer to the money standard or the world. The Government has promised to pay cent per cent, for its money, and tho question Is not altogether or the ability to pay, but It Is also whether the Government will pay. This is what Is the matter with the greenback to-day. It would be worth as much money as the gold dollar ir the Government would only pay it. Mako the f;reesback exchangeable for the gold dollar, and t makes no matter whether you withdraw It rrom circulation or not. The United States has not gold dollars jenough to redeem It, and. there fore, it should do the next best thing and say to Its holders, we will give you an equivalent. We will glvo you a bond. If you want to bring the greenback to par you must mako it scarce. The Government made this paper money and has dc- rreclatcd it, and It sow lies with the Government o bring It up to par. With a view or doing this uo uBuaiineiast session miroaucea a Dill to iuna the greenback, but he was not tenacious or that measure ir any one could suggest a better. The Constitution recognized gold and silver as the only currency or the country, and the world recognized It as the only money. The Republi can party is charged with the administration or the Government, and It has no time to lose In the settlement or the money question. The Republi can party must now rise or rail upon this ques tion. Nothing but Itself can kill It. He was earn est In advocating a return to a specie basis, and that must be done by the party. Whatever fu ture awaited that party, whether of lire or death, he hoped It would sot die or a wantorcouraje. THE JIW JERSET 8TATE3 VAN. Mr. Phelps, or N. J., said that. In his opinion, ror more than twelve years the Government had been without mosey. It had a currency, and done what It could to force it as money. He held that currency bad that did not reach In value the money it sought to represent, and a currency that fluctuated like the waves of tho sea was bad. All would admit that a fluctuation In the value or the currency was the cause or Innumerable woes to the commerce and finances or the coun try. Assuming It was granted that the currency was bad. the question was how It could be made rood. It was bad, first, because It consisted or be promises of the Government to pay, and must remain bad until those promises were re deemed; and, second, because in this substitute for money there Is always operating the same law of supply and demand which causes fluctua tions in value according as the supply exceeds the demand or the demand is greater than the supply. These promises.he argued.should be kept. It was no longer an Impracticability. It could be done by borrowing money on time to pay them. It would not be necessary to borrow the lull amount and balance dollar lor dollar lor the currency. The experience ol banking showed that but a small portion or the sum would do It. There was another way. II we are nnwllling to pay all let us pay a part- Do what we easily can diminish a small proportion; say, reduce to three hundred million and. In his opinion, these ?romlses would rise to par, lor three reasons: 'lrst, because there must be some circulating medium, and If there was no other medium the Inexorable demand would lorce them to an equi librium; second, the effect ol the legal-tender act, and third, the showing or an Intention to redeem tbcm would cause confidence to grow In their ultimate redemption. Was It sot, undor these circumstances, the duty of Congress to do all It could to rehabilitate the currency? This was tho natural and only way, In bis opinion, to restore the currency. The gentleman from Pennsylvania (Mr. Kelley) would not re duce It a dollar, but let It stand lorever and ac cept insolvency as the permanent condition or the country. Mr. Kelley sold the question was whether the country would relieve lueir by borrowing to pay present creditors. That was the method or Mlcawber, who paid when he could borrow, and when he could not borrow did what the United States did to save the lire or the nation gave its due bill. He wanted no more borrowing. Mr. Phelps said the gentleman forgot the dif ference between a time debt and a debt past due. ir he borrowed money ror bine years he was not Insolvent, but If he failed to pay one day alter It became due he was in dlsgracoasd In the hands ol his creditors. He alluded to the 3-65 per cent, interest and the 365 days consumed by the earth In Its revolutions areund the sun as a combination ol the banking with the heavenly system. He next contended that so Government should go Into the banking buslnes, and especially onr own, whose credit was already strained. This was sot the normal system or banking, but It was a desperate experiment and a system of banking that had neither money nor credit, and which did not propose to reap the benefit of banking, but allow its customers to do so by borrowing from them when money was dull and loaning to them when Interest was higher than the rate it paid. The cry or the people for money had been heard for SIX THOUSASD TXAEJ, and doubtless would be for centuries to come, for "the poor we have always with us." Attempts had been made and doubtless would be made to make money, but there were only two ways to get money earn it or steal It. In his opinion there was only one way to make currency equal to meney, and that was to follow the straight and narrow way and let the Government make good Its promises to pay as an honorable Individual would do. Mr. 11. B. Smith, or N. Y., said he was opposed to any Inflation or the currency, and, with the exception or the four million bill, his vete had uniformly been In that direction. He favored tho resumption of specie payment at the earliest moment that it could be done without serlois dis aster to business interests. He naturally op posed expansion, but opposed any legislation for national bank currency to exclude greenbacks. On three hundred and eighty million greenbacks the Government paid no Interest, but on three hundred and fifty-six million national bank notes It paid between twenty and twentr-one million Interest on the bonds every year. It was true a part or this was returned in bank taxes, but only a part. He did not think it statesmanship to drive out the greenbacks and substitute these bsnk notes. The greenbacks, being a legal tender, would j uereauer do oi inestimaoie service to the nnances or the country. To Illustrate this he ci"d the case or the Ohio Lire Insurance and Trust Com- Sany, which unexpectedly failed la 1857, and rew down the banks more nearly connected with It, and they in turn drew down those with which they were connected, till nearly every bank in the country suspended. Could these basks have obtained at par legal tenders at the Treasury In exchange for gold bonds, that disaster might have been In a great measure averted. If legal tenders can be sad at the Treasury ror bonds at Jar they would be worth more to commerce and he finances than their race. He would consent to legal-tender circulation only on condition that the notes should be at par In gold at the Treasury. He would make thtm receivable In part ror duties and exchangeable for gold-bearing bonds. He approved some ot the features of Mr. Kel ley's bill, but held that It contemplated expan sion, as the small bonds would be used as cur rency. He therefore proposed an amendment that thelowest denomination be 11,000. Pending further consideration or the bill the committee rose. On motion or Mr. Tyner, of Ind., the House con curred in the Senate amendment to the bill for the purchase of scales for the use or the Post Office Department after the 1st day of January, . On motion of Mr. Negley, or Fa., the Secretary or War was directed to send to the House the report of the engineer appointed to examine the site ror the St. Clair and Carondelet bridge at St. Louis.

IRREGULARITY OF THE MAILS. Complaints have been received from Indlanola, Texas, that the malls are not delivered regularly by the coast line.

Com plaints have also been made as to the malls lying over at Cedar Key, en route to Key West, and this evil Is also In a proper way lor remedy. Tho residents or the country between Tloonderoga and White Hall, New York, have been deprived or their regular malls by a disinclination on the part or the managers of the New York and Canada railroad to accede to a proposition or the Post Office Department to $62.50 per mile for ser vice on the new branch of their road between White Hall and Tlcondertfga.

PLAINTIFF'S BILL OF PARTICULARS AND ARGUMENTS OF COUNSEL. New York, Dec 10. The argument In the or der to show cause why a bill of particulars should sot bo granted In the Tllton-Beechcr suit came up to-day before Judge McCunn, In the General Term Court-room, Is Brooklyn. Theodore Tllton was present in person, accompanied by his coun sel, ex-Judge Morris, while the other side was represented by William M. Evartsand Messrs. Tracey and Thomas J. Shearman. Mr. Shearman opened the argument by read ing the order to show cause, Ac Ho said it was obtained on affidavits formerly used before the court. Ex-Judge Morris then read the following: THEODORE TILTOH'S AFFIDAVIT. Cify Court, Brooklyn. Theodore Tllton vs. Henry Ward Beeeher. City or Brooklyn, Kings county: Theodore Tllton, the above-named plain tiff, being duly sworn, deposes that the sum total ol knowledge sow possessed by him or sexual In tercourse between Henry Ward Beeeher and Eliz abeth R. Tllton, and ol the times and places thereof, consists as follows: 1. Confession or said sexual Intercourse made by Henry Ward Beeeher to Francis D. Moulton, Emma R. Moulton, Theodore Tllton and others. 2. Confessions or said sexual intercourse made by Elizaceth R. Tllton to Emma R. Moulton, Martha B. Bradshaw, Florence Tllton, Theodore Tilton and others. 3. Written and printed papers, documents and letters by Henry Ward Beeeher. 1. Written and printed papers, documents and letters by Elizabeth R. Tllton. 5. Written and printed papers, documents and letters by other persons. 6. Acts, declarations and conduct by said Henry Ward Btecher and said E. R. Tilton, respec tively, tending to prove such sexual intercourse without locating It In any time or place. 7. And various circumstances not amounting to direct proof derived rrom the acts, oral declara tions and written papers and documents or said Henry W ard Beeeher and or other persons com municated to him and admissible against him; and deponent lurther says that aforesaid confes sions were made to others than this deponent, but not to this deponent's knowledge, nor did any other of them specily any time when, or place where, sucn sexuali-tercout.se between the said defendant and the wife or this plaintiff occurred. That confessions so made to this deponent named but two specific occasions, and but two places when and where such Inter course was had, viz: The one at the house or said defendant, In the city or Brooklyn, on the 10th or October, 1868, and the other at the house or the plaintiff In said city on the 17th of October, 1833. But this deponent Is not absolutely certain that the above' are the precise dates given by said con fessions, but Is positive that they were about and very sear to those two days. Nor Is this deponent positive that the places assigned to those dates were as above stated, It being possible that the Intercourse stated above as occurring on the 10th ot October, 1868, may hare been at the house or this deponent, and that on the 17th or October, 1868, at thb house of this defendant, and thl3 de ponent further says that the confessions so made to him admitted VARIOUS ACTS OF ADULTERY by said defendant with said wife ot this deponent, between said 10th or October, 1868, and the spring or 1870, but did not particularize any time or place otherwise than as above stated. That this deponent does not expect to be able on the trial ol this action to proveby any eye-witness any such Intercourse, or to prove any definite time or place when or where such Intercourse occurred, except by the confessions aforesaid, and that Is the only prool or adultery charged by complain ant within the control or knowledge of this depo nent en which ho expects to be able to offer upon said trial; and this deponent Is unable to furnish any further or other statement of particular times or places at which he expects or intends to prove that any such acts of ADULTERT OB CRIMINAL INTERCOURSE took place between defendant and the wife of plaintiff than as above given, and deponent re spectfully says that any order for particulars be passed by. This motion, which shall preclude this deponent from maintaining this action by proofs of confessions, acts, declarations and other testimony tending to prove adultery named In the complaint, although such evidence may not Indi cate the time and place of its commission, would deprive this deponent of material testimony, and, as he Is advised by his counsel and believes, would injuriously and unjustly restrict his legal rights, and he therefore prays and Insists, In ease this court ehould grant any order for particulars, that a clause may be inserted therein to the fol lowing effect, viz: But this order Is not to be so construed or applied as to prohibit plaintiff on trial of this action from Introducing evidence of confessions, acts, declarations, writings, and docu ments which may be admissible under the gen eral rules of evidence, as 11 the order had not been made, and which do not In exact terms refer to any partlculor act or time or adultery, but proving by such evidence the adulterous Inter course charged In complaint, although It may not thereby appear to have been committed on any particular day or at any particular place. (Signed) Theodore Tilton. ARGUMENT OF COUNSEL. Ex-Judge Morris argued that there should be so restriction as to particular days on which the offenco occurred. We alleged, said he, the only two days ol which we have any knowledge. What object, he wanted to know, could the counsel or the other side navo for persisting in the efforts to obtain a bill of particulars but to hamper his client? What was the purpose of this limitation to dates ir It was not to hinder him? He submit ted that with this statement there was no occa sion for a bill ol particulars. Mr. Shearman said that when this subject was first broached to tho counsel on the other side they thought it was a fit subject for jest, but they were now disposed to treat the matter more se riously. We congratulate the counsel on getting ever their delicacy in mentioning the two dates oi October 10 and October 17. He reviewed the reasons for granting bills of particulars and the causes of their ordering. t Ex. Judge Morris objected to this prolonged dls cnsslon. Mr. Shearman read the form or a bill or par ticulars which he had drawn up and submitted to the notice or the Court. Mr. Evarts also argued In behair or a bill or particulars, confining the plaintiff to specific dates and times or committal or tho offence. Ex-Judge Morris said tho purport or this order would be the exclusion or general evidence With this restriction the jury could not give a verdict. ir the jury found that the offence was committed within any part of a restricted time, they could hare a verdict. The first witness they would in. troduce would be the defendant himself, but their evidence would not point to any particular day, but would establish the fact. Was that evidence, therefore, to be excluded? If they established the fact, he argued, they were entitled to a ver dict from the Jury. After some rurther argument by counsel on both sides or like nature, the Court took the papers and reserved Its decision in the matter. The consultation of judges in the Tllton Beeeher case was held this afternoon In regard to the propriety and probability of being able to continue the ease on Monday next. The definite result, however, was arrived at, but It was agreed that the counsel should consult as to the length ol time the case would last, with tho view to reaching a decision as to whether it coal.' be tried within the present term. A definite decision will probably be made In a day or two. THE ERIE RAILWAY SUIT. New York, Bee. lft The State Attorney General, In the suit against the Erie Railway Company, alleges that the notes In question were Issued to President Jewett In part payment of his salary of $10,000 per annum, according to the contract made with him by the company; that the said contract Is Illegal and the salary unreasona ble and exorbitant; that Jewett has thereby un lawfully used the property of the company and suffered It to be wasted, and Is guilty or gross misconduct as director and president, and will continue to abuse his trust unless restrained by the court and suspended from office. The Attor ney General also alleges that tho combination between the Erie Company and the New York Central and Hudson Elver Companies for uni form rates of transportation for the Increase of the same and diversion or earnings Is Illegal and against the Interest and rights of the people, as is also a similar combination with the Pennsylvania Railroad Company; that all these agreements were known to Jewett, who permitted and aided In their execution, and Is consequently guilty of additional misconduct and abuse ol trust; where fore the people of New York, through the Attor ney General, pray the said contracts and agree ments be declared void; that Jewett be called to account for his official conduct and be suspended from office, and that the Erie Company be re strained from executing the said notes and con tract with Jewett, and a receiver be appointed to hold the notes, and for such other relief as may be Just. , The Little Bock: and Fort Smith railroad was told yesterday, under a decree of the United States Court, for one Dillon dollars. It was bought by representatives or the holders of the first mortgage bonds. THE WAR IN MISSISSIPPI. COXTX1CT BETWEEN HIE STATE AND "ZZ. C1TX AUTHORITIES.

Ames' proclamation Mayor O'Lcary issued one as follows: I, Richard O'Leary, Mayor or the city or VIcksburg, do hereby make my proclamation reciting what is known to everybody, or what ever party, color, denomination and condition of life, that there has been no riotous assemblage In this city. .That what seems to have gl ten rise to the uncalled for proclamation of his Excel lency was a quiet and orderly meeting of owners or property and tax-payers ot the city and county who, without arms or violence, requested $the resignations or irresponsible officials from the office or the sheriff and the chancery clerk ol the county who hare railed to ex ecute their bonds as required by law; that the city government or Vieksbunr is amply able to preserve the peace and quiet ol said city under all circumstances; that the laws or the city and of the State or Mississippi have been threat ened, and the recitals in the Governor's procla mation tending to produce a contrary Impression are meretricious and mendacious and unjust to the last degree. I therefore warn all to be guarded, and to preservo good order and respect for law; and whereas said proclamation has excited the citizens or the county, and that I have this mo ment received Information that armed bodies or colored men hare organized, and are now march ing on the city, 1 call upon all good citizens to observe the laws of the land, andl warn all such unlawful assemblages and armed bodies or men to disperse, and to retire to their homes; and for the preservation or law and order In the city I command all cood citizens to hold themselves In I readiness to report at any call 1 may make upon tnem ior tne purpose oi eniorcing inis proclama tion. B- O'Leasy, Mayor ol VIcksburg. Later In the day the mayor put forth a second proclamation, as follows: "Citizens, be quiet and discreet, but firm. Your dearest Interests are at stake All bar-room keepers and liquor dealers arc hereby ordered to close their places or business, and to permit no drinking upon or about their premises until to morrow at 12 o'clock noon." A meeting ot citizens was held last evening, at which the following resolution was adopted: Rttolttd, That while we are fully satisfied who has caused armed negroes to march In the city, and should be held mainly responsible for all the blood that has been shed, we recommend all good citizens to abstain from inflicting any personal violence upon him, and that we use still further efforts to save him removed from office In some legal manner. MOB LAW TRIUMPHANT. Vicksburo, Miss., Dec 10. All Is quiet. The city and county authorities hare burled the bodies or fourteen negroes, and about the same number have been buried by private Individuals. The white citizens still retain possession or the court-house and jail, acting under advice or the county board of supervisors, the members ol which are negroes with one exception. An elec tion for sheriff on December 31 has been ordered, and gives general satisfaction. The mayor will Issue a proclamation In the morning, announcing that peace prevails, and requesting the citizens to resume their usual avocations. In an inter view with Andrew Owen, the negro commander or the negro colnmn which advanced on Grove street, who Is a prisoner, Owen reiterated that Sheriff Crosby ordered him to ceme to the city with all the armed men he could get, and that Crosby gave Governor Ames as his authority for calling out the negroes.

REPORTS FROM THE SEYEr.AL POINTS OF OBSERVATION. New York, Dec 10. A Nagasaki dispatch says: During the observations or the transit or Venus the weather was unusually cloudy and unpromising. The time at which it was ealcu lated that the transit would begin passed away without our being enabled to record the exact moment ot the first contact with trustworthy re sults. After about a quarter or an hour, and be fore Venus reached the stage or her second con tact, the observer at the equatorial caught a glimpse or the sun and planet, and was quite successful In taking several measurements of the planet's cusps during the Interval between the j first and second contacts. The time at which the latter contact occurred was obtained with sue. cess and recorded. Shortly after the second eon tact further measurements of the distance be tween Venus and the tun's western edge were made with the micrometer. In all, there were taken 150 mlcrometrle measurements of the line between the cusps. Besides these, thirty-one mlcrometrle observations were made of the pas sage ol both edges of the-un across the meridian of the station, and similar views of right and left rims or Venus in crossing the same line. Eighteen mlcrometic surreys were made or the respective declinations or tl e ran and planet by observing the upper and lover limbs while pissing the meridian. About sixty excellent photographs or the transit during various periods of its occur rence were taken. Extreme goyl fortune at tended the astronomers, for just as Venus de parted rrom the sun clouds began to gather and threatened rain. SUCCESSFUL OBSERVATION AT VLADIVOSTOK. A dispatch rrom Vladivostok says! "Clouds obscured the sun from dawn, but as morning ad vanced the sky cleared and the luminary was dis tinctly visible through the equatorial telescope His beams gradually brightened, and as the de cisive moment of the commencement of the transit drew near an Image was distinctly printed on the background of the camera used by the photogra phers. The equatorial ran splendidly with the clockwork, and the segment of the sun about to collide with the planet remained fixed steadily before the observer's eye. As the planet ad vanced and touched the sun's limb the moment was signaled with accuracy; but owing to a drift ing haze and clouds between, It was Impossible to obtain good photographs of these contacts. The vapory state of the atmosphere lasted until about an hour after the second contact; nevertheless, the moment at which this contact occurred? was likewise obtained. When Venus had crept nearly half way across the solar disk tht haze disap peared sufficiently to admit or photographic images being obtained. Thirteen negatives, well and distinctly executed, were taken on glass plates while the planet was in position, so that It will be possible to map the planet's track on the photographic Image of the sun after the return of observers home." at hobarttown. A Hobarttown, Tasmania, dispatch, says: "Although the weather was bad, our observa tions at the time of the transit were particularly successful. We succeeded In taking one hundred and thirteen photographs of Venus during her passage over the disk of the sun. reports tbrocqb lodon. London, Dec 10.

NEWS FROM OTHER LANDS. GLRMANT. THE VON ARNtM TRIAL. Berlin, Dec 10. The trial of Count Von Amlm was resumed to-day. The report of Prince Hohenlohe, the German ambassador at Paris, la relation to the decuments missing from tho archives or the legation, was read.. This was followed by the reading or correspondence be tween Von Arnlm and the foreign office In rela tion to the return of certain documents which was accomplished through the Count's son. In a letter accompanying them Von Arnlm said he believed the other documents were not In his possession. Another report of Prince Hohenlohe declaring that the missing documents numbered thirty-six was then read. These documents re ferred to missing soldiers, the HI treatment of German subjects and violations of the frontier. Tho examination of the accused was resumed. He acknowledged the accuracy or the documents which had been read. His former statement that certain papers which he had appropriated were abroad meant that they were not in Prussia. In consequence or suggestions made to him, he has purposely set apart some documents which he considered private property, and which, on ac- count or their tone and language, were unfit to be communicated to third persons, as up to June he had been generally pointed out as an enemy of the empire. He had kept these documents be yond the Prussian frontier. The reading ol the papers In the caso was then continued. One or them was Manteuffel's report concerning Von Amlm's conversation with St. Valller, which was followed by Von Arnlm's re port, in which he admitted the truth of Manteuf fel's asserticn. The prisoner here said he regretted Manteuffel's report had been read, as it laid the first stone or conflict. The reading or documents or the second class was then proceeded with. The most no ticeable one was a reply to Arnlm's report on the German ambassadorial system, in which Bis marck reproaches Arnlm with a defective knowl edge of bis own country. The accused explained to the court that he naturally took grave offence at this dispatch, because It questioned his attach ment to tho empire. The Court granted an application mado by the defence to call Professor Lewis, by whose advice Arnim appropriated the documents. German officials testified as to the mode or conducting business in the Paris Embassy. Count Werdel plen, counselor of the Emoassy, deposed that the archives were complete when handed to Count Arnlm, after a temporary absence. Another at tache deposed that It was not Impossible that a few documents might get mislaid. At the close of the sitting the public prosecu tor complained that the Vou Gazcltt yesterday published the report of the private deliberations of the court, apparently emanating from the counsel for the defeace. He reserved the right to take lurther steps In connection with this matter. ILLNESS OF THE PRISONER. London, Dec U, 530 a. m.
