BAUNEV’s BLUNDEB, Special JJitpateh to The Chicago Tribune. Washington, D. C.. April 21. —Caulfield's Committeo boa probably stirred up & very lively hornot’a neat in its bungling efforts to convict tbe President of ordering an illegal use of tbs Secret Service fond of the Department of Jus* tlco. Tbe gigantic election frauds which were , formerly perpetrated in the City of Now York in the interest and under the direction of the Tam many Bing have never been seriously denied or defended oven by tbe Democrats themselves. The whole subject baa been one which Demo cratic politicians have studionslv avoided, and no one suppoaed that by any blunder of a Demo cratic investigating Committee the history of tboso frauds would again bo brought oat and spread upon tbe record of (bo House of itepro sentatives. But this seems to be Just what Caulfield's Committee is doing. After a brief and very euporfleiai investigation, in which tbo Committee obtained smTiciont information to bavo given it a oluo to the whole matter, tbe Committee, seemingly without stopping to in quire whether any law had keen actually violat ed or not, allowed tbe MOST'SENSATIONAL AND ONE-SIDED REPORT of Its proceedings to be priutod. Tbs resale was that within twenty-four boars Davenport, Chief Supervisor of Elections at Now York, was on his way to Washington , bringing »»m» mm Touchers and receipts for the mouoy spent, but also tho voluminous pupera and documents showing the extent of the election frauds form erly perpetrated in Now York, aod tho manner in which they were checked, and, to some ex tent at least, prevented. Davenport's examine, lion was begun by the Committee this afternoon in open session. Caulfield, tho Chairman of tbo Committee, conducted the inquiry with Tory little show of courtesy to tbs witness, who scorned to have nothing to conceal, and not only tho substance of many of bis questions, but the manner in which they were put, was such as to bo almost offen sive. After answering a number of irrelevant questions in regard to his ago, former occupa tion, places of residence, political preferences, etc., Mr. Davenport was allowed to begin * A COMPLETE STATEMENT of the manner tn which tho money paid him through tho Secret-Service IJnroau was used. He made but little progress to-day before tho Committee's adjournment was reached, bub ho had sufllcleut time to explain tho character of some of tho frauds which ha undertook to check m tho Now York elections, ilia further examination to-morrow will probably be very interesting. It ts generally conceded in Wauhinglon to-day that there was really very little foundation for (ho sensational writing which has boon Indulge,l in iu regard to (bo ox fionditaro of a portion of tho Secret Service und of tho Department of Justice by Super visor Davenport. This fund was appropriated for the detection and punishment of CRIMES AGAINST TUB UNITED STATES, and if Illegal voting at Congressional or Na tional elections is a crime against tho United States, as it has been made by the elec tion laws, then its detection was a proper object fur tbo expenditure of this money. The reports of the President’s feeling and remarks on this subject, have been grossly oxagoratod. It was said that a mooting of*, his Cabinet was called at an uuusually early hour 10-dnv in order that this exposure might be fully discussed. The (ruth is that tho change in the hour of holding tho Cabinet meeting was caused by tho desire of tho President to go to Philadelphia ou tho early afternoon tram to re ceive the representatives of a foreign Govern ment at the Centennial, and tbo session was one of the shortest that has recently taken place. The Infamously ami maliciously unfair and meanly partisan version of the testimony re specting the President which seems to havo boon given out by Democratic members of tho Caulfield CoaimlUco has at last caused the fair minded roou of both parties in the House to realize tho monstrous injustice which results from secret investigations. In former Con gresses the Democrats in and out of Congress, when tho liopublicana bad two-thirds majority In tho Lower House, thoy not only investigated tho abuses of the Administration, but always did so openly. Tho Democrats havo adopted tho contrary policy, and for tho reason that is admitted, if not avowed, that a legion of slanders may at the oud of tho session be sent to tbu county without an opportunity for rooty. The Democrats have selected tho plan of star chamber investigation as the initial step in their foul campaign of slander. Probably TUB MOST CONSPICUOUS EXAMPLE of this is the Caulfield Committee. The Chairman of that Committee made very loud pretense that no man should be defamed through his Commit tee, and that no man should bo dishonored or condemned unheard, yet tho most disreputable scandal hounds, detectives charged with infam ous offenses and tho vilest passions, outlaws from civilization seeking to oscapo from prisons by pleading tbelr own infamy iu their attempts to ruin others, can bo dadv seen hanging as wilnejscs or as donosltoties of libelous infor mation about that Committee-room door. The ox-parto stories of such persons hav*» been peddled out iu a distorted form iu of half truths, which wore lies, by bom o Pvrsou who must havo heard them, aud t*e loft* pn tense of tho Committee has prove/ a Pbarisaual since the lying (.Ule-tattio of partisan dofamors has boui:l< l? I!"™ * )e fame of tho President of ito United SUUs. Tho consequence of this dlscracoful occurrence was observed in two wavs »t the Capitol to-day. Tho storm of indignation waa so groat that tho Caulfield Committee was COMI’KLLKU TO OltN ITS DOORS, aud tho House, by a vote of 170 yeas to 48 nays in tbs reeolution icapecnug Cats aud Drislow investigation, placed ltn«l( on record against ao fret investigations.

Tbo chief points have al ready bocn ptiblhbed. John 1. Davcnnort teatU fled that In tho New Tork election of 1870 he discovered that fraud* had boon perpetrated, and adopted a oysleti of registration which eventually resulted In tie detection of Uietto frauds. In pursuing tils matter witness had spent 510.000. lie foual that ho was being impoverished, and askoa Col. Biles. (Jen. Arihur, Oen. Sliarpe, Mr. Jfurphv, Jackson S. Hhullz, aud other gentlonnn of Now York, whether the Government, would not pay him for his efforts te detect these frauds. In the summer of 1871 he went to Long Branch to see the President, md explained to Oen. urant tbo frauds ho had discovered, and asked whether some of tho fund in tho control of tho Department of Justice cotld not bo used to pay him. The Prcaidout was Impressed with tbo plan submiited by witness to jkovont frauds in elections, and said bo would rctotnraend tbo !^i to i« tO ,i t I!Sr A j: lorn8 y ,Oenera l' Witness re ceived In all 835,000, part of which cano through Akcnnan and part through Wilhama.

Garfield from all blame. THE EMMA MINE. Mr. Park, in tho Emma Mine inquiry to-day. testified that by tho purchase and sale of stock, in 1872. £1(1.700 sterling was realized, and, ac cording to bis understanding, Gen. Schenck was entitled to ono-balf, but refused to take moro than £1,891. Gen. Beboock was inter ested to tho oxtont of 2,033 shares. Qon. Schenck read a statement showing (hat his investments on account of the Emma Mine aggregated 553,200. To show for (his amount. Gon. Schenck has received dividends, and holds stocks as follows : Dividends, thirteen months in 1871 and 1872. 53.500; 475 original shares, 53,000; total. 511,500; leaving a clear loss, as nearly as can bo estimated, of 512,200, The examination is now closed, with the ex ception of the reception of certain papers from London. BRISTOW. HE INVITES THE INVESTIGATORS TO PROCEED. Special Vuvatth to The Chteaco Tribune. Washington, D, C., April 21.—Secretary Bris tow Unlay called ou the Chairman of iho Com mittee to investigate the case of tho bark Mary Merritt, and requested that ho would make the inquiry special, and push it as rapid!? as possiblo consistent with thoroughness, and hive It con with open doors. He cavo the names of the Kentucky owners and of their attorneys, ana made a full statement as to the whiroabouts of the records in tho Trcasnry, tho Department of' Justice and Courts. Tho Secretary said that it was entirely immaterial to him what members were charged with the inquiry, as a wb-com mitlco. Tbo Chairman promised that the inves tigation should begin on Monday or Tuesday. Cate, the mover of inquiry, objected yesterday to the investigation being open, and voted against It to-day. Thirty Democrats voted with him to keep tho doors closed. Tho majority of thorn oro unknown, and for somo unexplained reason (ho following Ohio Democrats voted to keep the doors shut: Cowan, Hard, Neal, Southard, Vonco, aod Wailing. The records of the Treasury and papers of the Secretary show that the vessel was not charged with smuggling, but with merely a technical violation of tbo navigation laws. God. Bristow was never retained as counsel, never aaltod or received a foe In tho case, presented it on ono occasion to Secretary Bichurdson an a friend for tho owners, who wore his neighbors, and without compensation. On this account he refused to have anything to do with the case when Secretary, and never did have anytnlog to do with its settlement, and the settlement. when made by tho Solicitor and Assistant Secretary, in tho absence of the Secretary, was upon tho recommendation of Judgo Drummond, of the Illinois Circuit, and written opinion of Judge Miller, of the Wisconsin District. who involved himself so disastrously before Caulfield's Committee, In his testimony concern ing Secretary Bristow, has been very busy for the last six weeks talking against the Secreta ry aud the Treasury Department, and giving many vague hints of fraudu lent transactions, which he had reason to believe the Secretary was engaged Id. This talk has excited considerable curiosity in regard to the motives which could prompt it, since every story of which ho pretended to have knowledge was coon found to have no other foundation than malicious gossip.

Snteuil lhtj*Uh to The Chiaujt Irfbnne. Washington, D. C.. April 21 ifr. Lord, (b« boat! of the Impeachment Managers. has made a discovery which bo considers of vital Impor tance to bis case, and it ia at least significant as shotting tho straits in which those managers bare found themselves. lie baa discovered that when Belknap drew his last p*y the Gov ernment paid him for the entire day upon which bo resigned, instead of up to 10 o’clock and 25 minutes, at which time Mr. Lord bolds that his pay should have promptly coaaod with tho date of his resignation; but as ho was paid nntll mid night of that day. Mr. Lord insists that there is m> dnnbt whatever but that bo remained an officer of tb« Government until after the Impeachment was passou by tho House, consequently ho de duces tbs conclusion that the plea of iho ac cused that the Senate has no jurisdiction is without force, and should ho held void by tho Senate. This brilliant discovery and able argu ment is a fair illustration of the entire impeach nitot proceedings on tho part of tno prosecution «p»i. to. and including the date of Mr. Manager Lords important and startling discovery.

Special JiupaUh to The Chicago Tribune. Washington, D. C„ April 21.—Postmaster General Jowoli to-day mado a formal demand upon Mr. Stone, Chairman of iho Post-OfQ» Expenditures Committee, that tho official rec ords of the Post-Office Department in pooeos slon of tho Committee be returned to the De partment. Tide demand waa mado as a conse quence of a decision mado at the last Cabinet meeting. The subject was there fully dtscuss od. and tho law considered, which makes the heads of Departments the responsible custodi ans of all public records, and provides that certified oopice may bo legal evidence. It la not In ti»A ntw.{„,% n n f f|,„ J,!.. , end the Cabinet have decided that no more official hrigioam be famished '.tbs House. If - ihOfvHousq.,'..objects . to this, it will bo very likely to recdivo n lotter.similsr to that of Andrew Jaoksou, which has Just been re vived. The Department authorities maintain that, in the absence of tho Committee from their rooms, it wonld be possiblo for fraudulent bid- - dors to easily change a few figures in some official records, and greatly injure tbs Govern ment. The Postmaster-General has made this demand upon Slone, and the latter has refused to accede to tho demand. alDongli the docu ments have been in the Cormnttoo-room for a mouth, and have not been caod as a basis of any testimony.

A proper enumeration of the In lins, now impossible, could be made, aud all would Je kept on their reservations, thus avoiding one of the most frequent sources of busUUty. There would then be no rondtet of anthoriiy u now, between agents and' army officers, sod no promises would be made (bat could not bo kept. TAml—The best Intercuts of the Indians themselves demand the change. What the ludlaua now need especially la Justice and a firm, uniform policy. lam convinced tbat these nn be secured under army management. Army officers as a class are not un friendly to (bn Indians, aud (hose on the frontier are' good Judges of Indian character. Many of them take a deep interest in all that pertain* to the welfare of the Indians. All efforts to Improve and elvillts the Indiana could l» made even better under army officers than now, and I feel confident that the true interests both of the Indians and the Government would be advanced by the proposed change, 1 remain, with, high rvspoct, very truly yours.
