The Tefrymm ?ays: It is rumored ia shipping circles that one of our railroad millionaires will build a flet of iron sailing ships for the PaciSa coast trade. A Telegram reporter called on W. 11. Starbuck for information regarding the matter. Star, buck said the, story was hardly true, hut probably sprung from the fact that he had already contracted tor one ship of 3,000 tor.s, and hid in contempla tion the building of five more. These ?htDs, the reporter learned, were to be 244 feet loa, 2 feet beam. 23 feet in depth of hold, and were to deliver car goes in the porta of Oregon. They must carry a draught of only IS feet of water when heavily loaded. Their in tended service heavy, dead-weight aroes from this p.rt around the Horn, then witli grain across to Europe and a -enaral cirgo back hei e is indeed of a valuable nature, and no doubt will make tneir probable efficiency something of a problem, financially acd otherwise. WASHINGTON, .Nov. li'.e bsu irr the restoration of Fit-Jon I'orter to the army is set for consideration for the :;rst Wednesday in December, and the nntvst over the case is expected to be renewed at that tim. Morrill will un doubtedly anragvgiize it wi.h his tax -bill, wbieli, in view f toe pcneral clamor o: the jiress to have something done i.i the way of financial legislation, may came the regular order to be set ide. Should such a contingency not arise, a controversy that will be memo rable in the annals of the Senate is ex pected to ensue.

Oa Sunday the faiui;y of Thomas Huhes, living near Spotsville, Kentucky, IS miles from hare, went to church to be jone all day, leaving their infant in charge of a colored girl. The (jit I went to a. neighbor's, leaving the child oa a .a!let ou the & tor, and was also gone a 1 1 dy. When the family returned they found the child dead and most horribly eaten by iat?. WASiriJfUTos, Nov. 3. Folger, in an interview, denies emphatically that has resigned. The matter was never freferred to by the President or himself. 1 ' DimLiy, Nov. 23. Denis Field was set upon ' last 'eight and mortally stabbed. When acting as a juror in the llynes case be handed a note from the box to Goddard, ol the Emergency Committee. The notoriety given by the comments of the Freeman Journal to this incident made Field a marked man, although he explained that the note was of an innocent nature. Field's assailants drove off ia the directum of Tramcoudra. He state! that they tabbed bim in the arm, chest and heek with a sword cane. He seized the weapon and broke it. The men then knocked him down and wcuoded him . in , the back, after , which thry jumped on a car and toid the driver l drive quck, for heaven's sake." A mob last night attacked theervis atreet Hospical, where Dalan, who shot ant killed Detective Gox. ia lying, with the obj -ct. it is believed, of removing him. The mob a!vuted, yelled and triei to break oeu the doors. The in tntes were thrown into a state of the greatest Alarm. The police were tele ftraphed, and a lar'se force arrived on the tirouud at 10 o'clock, armed with word and batons, when the mob re treated, lurking, however, in the vicin ity.

Department oy Justicb. v'a.shisgton, Niv. t'lth. 1 -.To the President of the United State8 Sir : The letter of Gergs Hiim, coun sel fur the United States in the Star-route trials addressed t yon, dated November 11, 1882, was referred to me by yonr order, aud has been carefully considered. The facts set forth in it are not new to me. Frm consideration in a legal point f view, a well as official policy, I have thus far abstained from rldog your attention to thR mtter. I am much better oat ufied that Bliss, acting an onnse1 in the case, of his own mntinu his sitlwnitted to vou the subjects therein dealt with. Ks'nca I received the letter, Merrick and Kerr, the colleagues ot Blip. iive called upon tue and invited my attention to the rtibject, in the same manner that Bliss bas in the letter written by hitn to yon. It is my opinion that, for the mL-ctrmge of jmtiee coraplained f f by Merrick, Jjll.-w and Kerr, the Alarhsl of the rli trict ia responsible. Also formncn of the opposing sentiment to thecaae of the gov ernment that wa exhibited in court dur ing the trial of the Sf.ar-routecasps. This oegligei.t and irregular conduct iu select ine talesmen I stout'y objected to at the time, and so iuf(rined huu in a pjihlic.ip terview. That he wa puilry t-f criminal ner!irence. and it w so referred . to tv Colonel Blisi as an act that must subject hitn to the severest, censure a an officer of the court and an 'officer of the (overn rnent. Lie was guilty in thi of an of fense which hs been punished by court" a3 a gross act of contempt. I rtOL-inineud HIS IMMEDIATE BEMOVAL. Ha is in an unsuitable position, and has injuriously interfered with the proper con duct of the Star-route cases and tiven his personal sympathy and that of iiis cilice to t!ie indicted defendants. Second D. B. Aimer, Pomvtir of th's city, and his assntaTit, M. M. Parker, are j-utiy subject t 'i th charges pre sented by Bliss, and I think they should be removed. No uiea holding public ap pointments should be iennitted to Tine the influence and power f their positions as they have ued thrirs", or be permitted to interfere with such prosecution or auy prosecution urgeil by the government in vindication of the law. Third The man Helm, recently ap pointed to the head of one of the Depart ments in the Public Printing Office, is by l.iw incapable of holding that olfice, in asmuch an be controls a public news paper. But I will further add that the paper he controls ii a paper notoriously acd con lessen iy owned ty or e ot the de fendantsthe most culpable of ail, since it was by his oiheiai criminal uiaifca-tance the corrupt orders were inad and frauds Micct'sr-f ally perbetrated". His paper has been engaged froca the beginning of these proserutioni clown to the discharge of the jury in the most violent abue f all who were supposed to be interested in lriiip- inp, the defendants t lattice. Tli' dudie was not even spared ; the counsel were persistently slandered acd the witnesses openly assailed, denounced and terrorized by oue continuous torrent of personal abue and calu Jiny. I am of opinion that this mtn should be removed, and I am astonished that those who have charge of the public printing, with a knowledge of these facts, should venture to appoint him. He is cot a man to be trusted in the responsibility he hold.'. Fourth Ia conjunction with Bliss I respectfully call your attention to the conduct of George E. Spencer. Upon the day of your djpirtnre from this city, immediately after the adjournment of Consrress, a comoiuDication by Bliss and the other counsel ia , the case was sent through me, lodging with you a com plaint against G?orge E. Spencer. Thoe papers did not reach you at that time. This was during the latter week of the, trial. In fact, the evidence had closed and counsel were addressing the jury. These papers are now before you. Bliss, by hU letter which yon have referred to me, ' called your attention to them. - By them it pears that Spencer is : ' ' ' -j A DKUMJilEJiT ASI ABSCOXPISO WITNESS ; That he could testify to material and im portant facts, aud that be left this city and has ever since snereted himself and avoided the process of the law.- He holds an important public position, and is the last man who should hesitate to be ores en t in court to testify iu a case of this magnitude, and in which the honor of the government and the administration of public justice is concerned; and because of his censurable delinquency I unite with Bliss Mid the other counsel iu the case in akiot; his immediate removal Time enough has been given hini to ap pear and explain, but not one word has Isvn heard! from him and bs bas disap oeared as if he were .dead. I hve di rected most thorough search t' le made for bim. and thus far no trace of hitu cm be found. That search' will be persisted in, and if h can lie ha 1 he will Ite had and brought into court aud made to answer for his act of cross contempt and disobedience, and obliged t- testify to those facts which are within his knowl edge and aT no ewential t sustain the prnecnti'n f the defendants. Fifth Ofre C. Miller, one .f the police of the district in the recent judicial inquiry, with the audacity of a criminal, confessed under oath that lie had been en gaged and retained in the service of the dsfeodaota in the Star-ronte case and had persistently assisted them during the trial. Because of this confession so made bv him I applied to the Commissioners of this district t- remove him. That removal has takeu place. I have never forgotten your instructions mi my first accepting offloe, to putvie this case with vigor and riiror. so that the innocent should be ae- quitted if clearly innocent, and that the cuittv should he punished if ' clearly guilty; that there must be no half-hearted sentiment in the purpose of the govern' meet and its officers in this prosecution. After serious and prolonged deliberation over all the details of the case, my invest igations satisfied me that the men who were indicted WEEK GUILTY MES And, merited the extreme punishment of the law. Ihey had projected undercover of official power and under color of offi cial authority, a systematical plan ot de liberate robbery of the public Treasury. To carry out that plan they had laid their hands upon a fund dedicated by law to a great public service; a service that is conspicnoasiT one of the fruits and causes of our civilization, our social comfoit, our commercial prosperity, our nations! jrrowth, and millions of that money they perverted to their own pirate gain - and divided it for their own private- personal purposes. ' It was the condign act of an iufamous conspiracy, and deserves the severest punishment the law can inflict. bticu men are traitors to social and official duty, and they are public enemies, against whom the authority of the law must be exerted without hesitation or relaxation. The higher their past positions the greater their sin, and the sterner must be their punishment. I desiie to call your atten tion to the fact that the officers of the law, anil those who have been directly aiding me in the discharge of my duties in this business, have been from the first encircled with snares, pitfalls and every species of vile device that could be in vented to harm them, binder their useful n fcs and prevent the administration of justice. Some portions of this community, who surround these defendants and who have enjoyrd or do still enjoy minor offi cii positions, know no aliegi.tnce to any oue but this band of robbers, aud render no fcervica to any but thece evil em ployers, from motives of gain or other corrupt considerations ; they are saturated wilh sfhnitie for these bad men, and they have contributed, by every means in their power, at the bidding of their masters, to obstruct public justice and defame its effioers, with the hope of secur ing the acquittal and escape of the worst band of organized scoundrels that ever ex isted since the commencement of the gov ernment. ' Very respectfully, ' " ' Besjamii Harris Brewstfr, v Attorney General. any more surprised than I am at thia moment, aud I do not think the charg wen Id have had any more foundation." I Myron M. Parker made a statement vary similar to that of Ainger. He at tributes his removal merely to malice on the part of Tidbill and Brewster and Uaineron. and asserts his entire inno cence of complicity in the Star-route rands. i -M. D. Helm, foreman of the Congret- $wiuU Rerord, heard of his dismissal early this evi-mng and proceeded to forestall the action of the President by resigning his position, which be did in a letter addressed to Public Printer Rounds. He considers his removal a persecution and an outrage. He says ha believes that Brady is an inno cent man, and cheerfully sacrifices his position rather than join in the hue and cry against him. There is a rumor that Public Printer Rounds and Burnside. flixburbioK Officer at the Poet Office De partment, will be removed. The reporter of the Associated Press called at Dorsey's residence this evening. but was told that Dorsey would receive no visitors, being confined to his bed with Severe indisposition. Mo (DdDIHIM. AN ENTIBE NEW STOCK OF fill mm CIGARS AND TOBACCO. , THE LETTER OF BL'S. New. Yukk, NoV. 11. 1883. To the President Dear Sir : The second trial of the casa of. the United States against Brady and others is set down for the first wet-k in December, and the, government will then, I believe, be ready with a large number of witnesses and soma new testi mony. It beenis to me iinportiot to the case, and desirable in every respect, that befoie that time .th atmosphere which surrounds the case officially should be in some measure purified, thst every one may know, what I know so thor-.ujhly. that the prosecution is ' in dead earnest," from the President down. To that end I call yonr attention to certain facts, the most of which are unknown to yon. I address von because the statements I de sire to call your attention to concern per- sols in several ot the District depart ments of the government. The Marshal of the District of Columbia is undoubt edly in sympathy with the defendants and does not desire the government to succeed. Without going into further details, be, duriu the last trial, in a public interview, indulged in gross abuse ot the counsel for the United States, and in the declaration that the government had ' no case." D. 15. Ain ger, Postmaster at Washington, was, with his assistant, i rker. deliberately im pugned by the Post Office Inspectors in their report as to the certification f bogus b inds in the Star-route Cases. It was only a question of ross carelessness or bad faith, as there was no doubt of both of the acts alleged. Ainger is pro prietor of a ne,wepa;er iu Michigan. His name appears oa it as such proprietor. During the last trial be wrote to the paper, over his own signature, denouncing the officers who had instituted the prose cution, declnring that the government had no case. Helm had been recently ap pointed by tha new Public Printer as the head of one of the departments of the Government printing office. It was sworn to on the trial, by the editor of the Critic, that Helm was the person who controlled its columns, and on the trial there were produced and proved a se- I nes ot articles gross y abusiire- oT-fhe court, the government counsel and the general management of the case, which was represented as a persecution and without foundation. Your attention was called some months ago to tha case of George E. Spencer, a government Di rector of the Pacifi-: railroad. The police force of the District fit Columbia was un doubtedly in the interest of defendants, and the detectives uoblushinIy did their work. Oiie of'them has admitted that under oath in court. Now I am quite aware that it is very difficult to act ns to all matters to which I have called your attention; but as to some of them you can ac. and it seems to me that the facts onght to be brought to your knowledge. l ou have much to occupy you and much to trouble you, and I would not willingly aid unnecessarily to it just now; but the circuustanC'-s are such that delay seems impossible. Yonr obedient servant, George Bliss. NT r a ire CAPITAL CIGAR STORE, vaho,.
