The question who is to be the successor
of Clinton, the Auditor of the'State, has for
a very long time agitated the public mind,
and innumerable have been the conjectures
in regard thereto. j
About every Radical out of office, and very
many in office, havo made vigorous and per
latent efforts to obtain the coveted prize,
until Gov. Kellogg was so besieged and but
change would be mado, and others again have to
betn willing to bet that they could name the
fortunate man. The Radical Senators formed

fortunate man,

cand j da t e was thought to have the least
chance, and it seemed to be conceded re
cently that Mr. Hill, the chief clerk of Audi
tor Clinton, was to be the successor of his
Speculation, however, has been brought to
a sudden close, for Mr. Geo. B. Johnson
holds tho commission, and the Gover
nor has formally announced the appoint
ment. It was never thought that the
new appointee would be selected from
appoilltmen t of a Republican. Inasmuch,
tv. 6re f or A as we were to have a Republican,
' r i •
we are fre0 to say that Mr. Johnson, in our
0p i n i 0Ilj j s by far the best of the many aspirants
for tbe 0 gj ce . He is a young mac, a native of

Radical party was a unit in demanding the

that he shall keep the books and ac

bed of roses.
Mr. Johnson filed his official bond yester

are his bondsmen: W. R. Fish, II. Dottier,

A Report That He Was Seen on
Our Streets.
Tuesday evening on Canal street, there was
here and there considerable talk over what
was there circulated as a well substantiated
report, that Boss Tweed had been seen in this I
city that afternoon. Little attention was given
the subject until this morning, when we were
informed by a prominent Federal official who and
was acquainted with the Boss, that he had j
seen a man so closely resembling the escaped
• j u .1
to a gentleman companion, and both en
prisoner that he could not at the time repress
an exclamation of surprise.
The street at that time was very crowded,
and the figure meandered through the mazes
of the promenaders and in a moment was lost
to the gentleman's view. The official spoke
deavored to get as close a view of the mys- so
terious person as possible. He is satisfied it 1
was the Boss or his Popple-Gauger, or other ®

Plenty of time has elapsed since his escape
for Tweed ts reach this city in easy stages,
topping whenever a stop was required, and
the chase got too warm.
Naturally the report produced quite a stir,
and plethoric old gentlemen are now statea
out of countenance.
A reporter of the Bulletin interviewed Cap*.
Malone, Chief of the Detectives. He stated
that he had already received the report from
several individuals that Tweed was in the city,

He ÎS AlTCSted for Obtaining MOliey
Under False Pretenses.
On the 17th of Dscember, 1875, a young (q
ni. n, well dressed, called at the office ot Mr. |
L. H. Levy, No. 128 Gravier street, between j
St. Charles and Camp. He gave his name as
F. S. Davidson, and told Mr. Levy that he
was an officer in the Ninth Cavalry, Lnited '
States Army, and had called to see him about ' g
selling his time. Mr. Levy, thinking he was !
a genuine officer, edvanced him some money |
b ' , , _ , "M
on bis pay-roll for the month of December,
He returned again on the 20th of the month
and got some more money on the same pay
roll. This amount, together with the first,
summed up one hundrtd and forty dollars.
The broker found out a day or two ago, from
reliable parties, that the said Davidson was
not employed as an officer in the army, hut
was nothing more or less than an imposter,
and accordingly repaired to the First Munici
pal Police Court and swore out an affidavit
against him for obtaining money under false
and fraudulent pretenses.
A warrant was issned for his arrest, and on
Wedntsday morning he was picked up at the
corner of St. Charles and Common streets
and locked up in the Central Station. He was
arraigned before Judge Evans, pleaded not ,
guilty and was remanded to the Parish Prison
in default of $500 bonds for his appearance.
The young man's good looks and innocent
appearanco, with the representations that he
turned out to he a fraud. :

Two Negroes Killed.
A gentleman who arrived yesterday from
Pensacola, Fa., has given us the following
particulars of the condition of affairs there,
and which seem to indicate an approaching
collision between the people of order and ihe
tumultuous negroes of Escambia county.
It appears that Monday last was the day
fixed for the election of a Mayor for Pensa
cola, and both parties had exerted themselves
in the canvass to elect their man.
The election proceeded quietly until the
close, when at one of the precincts a negro
leader attempted to force one of the judges
belonging to his own party to make the count
so as the returns might bring in the Radical
nominee. The judge refused, and the negro
® aUed u P on - hl8 ~ toll ?* er8 t0 eject the judge.
This caused a disturbance, and pistols were
drawn, shots fired, and the negro who had
raised the row was killed. Shortly after this
another negro who was employed as mail
agent by the government on the railroad lead
ing out of Pensacola, attempted to incite his
followers to deeds of violence. A crowd gath
ered on both sides and the man was hilled.
The alarm spread at this, and all day yes
terday the Pensacola Guards and the Escam
bia Guards were under nrms, fearing an at
tack in force from the negroes. When our
j j n f orin ant left the scene the most intense
citement prevailed, and the whites were pre
paring for defense.

Wm. II. Carter Released from the Insane
On Monday last a petition for a writ of
habeas corpus was presented to Judge Steele,
of the Superior District Court, by J. N. Ha
gins, Esq., attorney for petitioners, praying
for the discharge of Isaac Chandler and Wm.
Henry Carter, who it was alleged in the peti
, wore m Uy ccr , fiue d in the Insane
' , . ,
Asylum—they bota being of sound mind.
The case came up before the Superior Crimi
na j (j our t yesterday, and Judge Steele dis
: Chandler until to-day, on the ground that
• there was an order from the Second District
Court in the hands of the Sheriff which had
not as yet been served on the keeper of the
Insane Asylum.
The judge stated that if the order from the
corpus for waut of jurisdiction.
Subsequently learning that the order from
t be Second District Court had been served,
i j. yj. Hagins, tho attorney of Chandler,
drew up a petition for a writ of habeas corpus,
w hich he will present to the Supreme Court
to-day. Mr. Hagins expressed himself to our
reporter as being confident that Mr. Chandler
WO uld be released from durance vile by the
Supreme Court, on the ground that the said
ord erof the Second District Court was granted
, 011 expa rte evidence, it having been decided
b y t be Supreme Court of this State in a sim
! il a r case that " sentence of interdiction can
not be pronounced on exparte evidence."
In the case of Carter it was shown that he
was confined on a ci mmitment issned on the
certificate ot Dr. J. S. Clark, City Physician,
by Judge Miller, of the lourth Municipal
Police Court, on July 28, 1871, and has been
in confinement ever since.
M ijor Andry, keeper of the Asylum, was
examined, and testified that while in his
charge, Carter had never given evidences of

A Case of Stolen Property
It will be remembered that at various times
during the month of September, 1875, nu
merous burglaries were committed in this
city, and among the many the residences of
Mr. Cuggy, No. 388 Magazine street; Samuel
Bell, Esq., on Camp street, and A. H. May,
Jr., on St. Charles street.
In the early part of October a noted bur
glar named Taylor Harris, alias Each Taylor,
was arrested in a room on Basin street, and
all of the property that had been stolen was
recovered, with the exception ot a pair of soli
ttire diamond ear-rings and two valuable gold
watches, that had been taken from Mr. Bug
gy's residence on the night of October 1st.
A few days after the arrest of Taylor Harris,
he sent a note by a messenger to Mrs. Cuggy
fiom the Parish Prison, where he was con
fined, stating that he wished to see her im
mediately in reference to the property stolen
from her on the night of the 1st of October.
Mrs. C called at the Parish Prison and saw
Taylor Hirris. He confessed of haviug en
t-red her house in compauy with two other
meD, and of haviug stolen therefrom two gold
watches and a pair ot diamond ear-rings. He
said he was sorry for what he had done, but
that he would tell her where they were. He
said that the next morning after the burglary
he had disposed of the property to Mr. Geo.
Ritter, a well known jeweler, at 177 lUmpart
street, for $55.
Mrs. Cuggy repaired to the jewelry storo
and found two of the watohes that bad been
stolen from her house ia the show case. She
walked into the store and asked Mr. Ritter if
he had a pair of solitäre dinmond earrings
for sale. He answered no, but that he would
receive some in a tew days. Mrs. Cuggy then
went to the First Municipal Police Court aud
made an affidavit against Mr. Ritter, for re
ceiving and having in his possession stolen
A search warrant was issned and placed in
the bauds ot Detective Cain, who, in com
pany with Mrs. C , went back to the store,
and when they got there they found that tbe
watches had been taken out of the case and
others placed in their stead. Ritter was ar
reste'd aud subsequently released. On the
10th of this month Capt. M done. Chief of
Detectives, received the following note from
Taylor H 'rris:
Parish Prison, New Orleans, La.
To Capt. Malouo :
Mr. Ritter, No. 177 Rampart street, you
give me $55 lor the two gold watches and the
diamond earrings which were sold to jou by
me for the amount, on tha second day of Oc
tober, 1875.
Signed : Taylor Harris.
Witness : T. W. Nickoll. Clerk P. P.
New Orleans, Dec. 1U, 1875.
Oapt. Malone called on Mr. Ritter ihe next
day after receiving this note and informal
him that if he did not return the property
that he would be compelled to make an affi
davit against him. Iiitttr did not deny hav
ing the property, and asked that a few days be
granted him to give an answer about it. The
captain waited on him until Tnesday morning,
and as he failed to come to an understanding
he made an affidavit against him for receiving
and having stolen property in his possession.
The warrant for his arrest was placed in
the hands of an officer, who arrested Ritter at
his store yesterday morning^ and lodged him
in tie Central Station.
Mrs. Cuggy, after making her affi lavit,
called on Mr. Ritter in reference to her
property, and he told her that if she hadn't
been so quick about making the affidavit and
having him exposed in the papers, she would
have recovered her property.
[Special to the Philadelphia Times.]
Washington, Deo. 24. —Gentlemen who are
well informed with regard to the relations be
tween the President aud Secretary Fish assert
that the President has had in bis hands since
the Virginias affair sworn documentary evi
dence to establish the fact that Mr. Fish has,
ever since 188'J, inspired numerous newspaper
articles on our affairs with foreign natious,
which, while they have been uusparmg in
criticism and abn.se of the President, have
also been tilled with praise tor the Secretary.
These articles are said to have been written
for the most part by Sidney Webster, Mr.
Fish's son-in-law, who is the attorney of ihe
Spanish Government, and to have been print
ed in one of the most prominent Democratic
newspapers in the country. I) is also alleged
that other evidences of Mr. Fish's duplicity
have been accumulating in tho President's
hands, aud that he is merely awaiting the
proper time to punish the offender. This ia
one of the chief reasons why the early resig
nation of the Secretary is confidently anti
cipated, and another is that the Secretary ia
believed to be the chief obstacle at present to
the President's purpose to briDg about a war
with Spain on behalf of Cuba.
This discovery very naturally creates a
great deal of talk in diplomatic and official
circles. The Secretary has always been looked
upon as the soul of honor, and mxny of bia
friends scout the idea that he would descend
to such a mean thing as attempting to circum
vent the President in the manner alleged.
Bat those in a position to know boldly assert
that unless Mr. Fish speedily retirés from
the Cabinet, the whole truth will come out,
and that it will place him in a very had light.
The Secretary himself refuses to say any
thing in rgard to the matter. The friends of
"free Cuba" are, of course, jubilant The
dignified head of the State Department has
been an insuperable barrier in their way, and
it is understood that it is owing to their
efforts that the President has had his eyes
Where he will look for a successor to Mr.
Fish is all a matter of conjecture. Wash
burne will be consulted, and most probably
called home to take the vacant seat at tha
Cabinet table. Oar Minister to France is one
of the few men upon whom Grant always rt
lies in emergencies. A crisis in onr foreign
affairs is approaching, and at such a time the
I counsel of a trusty friend is indispensable.
Beside", Washburne is every inch an Ameri
can, and, it is said, strongly sympathizes
with the Cubans in their long aud terrible
, struggle. But whether the Galena statesman
is recalled or not, one thing is certain, we are
all on the eve of interesting developments in
regard to this Caban business.
