The correspondent fired up at what he con sidered the dictatorial tone of Voorheea, and for a moment there appeared to be a pros pect for a belligerent duett, but after talk ing the matter over they got Into a more harmonious frame of mind and buriel the hatchet with a il bat Ion of champagne. The Bill to abolish the Board or Health?The Koine Committee on the District agreed to report favorably on the bill to abolish the present Board of Healtu and to establish a new one.

See. letary of the Interior iu relation to the ap pointment ol Pension Agent Clements, at Slaevu, Mo. He said Clements was ap pointed on bis owu efforts, and not because of the supposed influence that Mrs. Bogus bad with the President, aud that the Slot' per month which Clements paid her was not for her influence, but was his own arrange ment, which related to an altogether dlfler eut matter. It seems to be the general Im pression 1 hat the committee will subp<eaa Hal let Kllbouru again before them, and ask blm the questions which he retused to an swer, and ir he persists In reruslag to an swer to again have him committed to jail for contempt, and then retuse to recognize me court* and !<eep nim tnere until be does answer. Tney argue that unless the House has this power all investigations must coma to a close. ? A Tbfascr^ orricEK's Record.''?A special dispatch to t..<? Philadelphia Pre** fiom this city, April b. says, under the .-??Love beading:? Wn H-mpbill Jones, Dep uty First Coii'rol ? ? ' u rieasury depart ment, is aliegtd to . h ? *r.iteu a letter re commending a person or appointment under the rebel government. In the reorganization of the House of Representatives under demo cratic ruie he was tendered the post of clerk to the House Committee on Appropriations At the time, however, his name was pending for confirmation as deputy controller. Hav li g teen confirmed by the seuate, he de c lncd the proffered place under the House. It is stated that Mr. Jones presided at the deironfctratlon given at the white Sulphur Springs, Virginia, about six or eight years ago. In honor of the presence of the rebel gen eral Robert E. l.ee. He Is also charged with abstracting papers from the files of the Treasury, and placing them In the hands of the democratic Investigating committee; also, with having furnished Information to the sci .-ational press hostile to the republi can party. Mr. Jones' case is now in the baixfs of the Secretary of the Treasury, and is being examined. Tt?e lD?nne A?jlnni The Committee on the Expenditures of the Interior department resumed their investi gation of the affairs of the U. 8. Insane Asy lum this morning: Dr 8 A H. Me Kim testified that he has resided in this city for32years; has practised medicine foritf years, anew Henry M array who died at the asylum; was failed to see Lim several limes before be was sent to the a-ylum. With Dr. Walsh signed a certifi cate of his Insanity, P is wife was not favor able to having him sent there, but finally concerted. He was supported t>y the order of Itechsbites and Brotherhood of the Union. Mis. Murray desired that he should be left, ;<t hoim- as (-he would thus receive the bene tits; be was a memberof other organizations, his wife was not able to lane care of htm Ou several occasions he got out of the house partly dressed. They bail difficulty in going Into the house to see him?the doors and vtindcws were kept locked. Tfiere were times however wheu he was perfectly quiet. He had lucid intervals up to the time or ?.oing to the asylum. No confidence could be placed in him. Heard nothing about htm f!?tm ti e time he was sent to the asylum uutll lnioimed that he was dead and was requested to look at his remains. Mr. McCutchen, a member of trie order, be tboughl, told him of the death. Viewed the remains at the widow's residence. His at tention was called to a scar on the right eye ftoin bruises on the temple, and oue or two b-.uises on the limbs. Subsequently found that the discoloration 011 the litnb3 were not bruises. Toe marks on the face wore not dangerous in character. Patients could re ceive the same bruises by lulling out of bed. In health Mr. Murray whs a quiet, orderly man. Did not notice that bis hands or feet were frost bitten, r or was his attention call ed to It. Is confident there was no vermin on the bc.dy. Visited the asylum the day after ward*; put several questions to Dr. Morreil, aid after receiving answers, reported to Eagle Tent, Order of Kechabltes, which re port he read. It sets forth that thediscolor ations noticed ou the body we re uot bruises, and that the reason why Mrs. Marray had to wait so long to see her husbaud was that he always had to be washed before he was pre sentable. The bruises, according to Dr. Wor rell, may have been caused by striking against the door. The report wa* accsptea bv the order, and they gave up the idea or having a coroner's inquest heid to investi gate the cause of death. Dr. Morreil wrote him that his death was unloosed for, and that he had been struck once by a fellow pa tient who occupied the same room. Witness also received^ a letter from Dr. Nichols stating that he was confident that Mur ray was not struck by any one, aid that be must have received the bruises by strik ing himself or falling down. Rirhar<l U". Henker testified that he wa? an undertaker, and was sent for to remove the remains of General Loomls to his place and prepared the body for emballng and inter ment. Did uot make a careful examination of the remains, as it was unnecessary to do fO to embalm thrm; only bared toe right leg t > make an incision into the femoral artery; did not noilce any vermin on the remains, and made no particular examination of bim; be was very emaciated. ltr. Morreil was recalled and testified fiat during the first four months Mr. M irray was ui derDr. Franklin's care;after tnat witness took cnarge ol him; do not remember no licii g any bruises on his head nor that he told Dr. McKlm that another patient struck bim; might have told him so, however; know of no neglect or unkind treatment to ward him; he had no vermin on him. [This part of his testimony was but a repeti tion of that of Dr. McKim I Murray had been in the asylum a little over a year; this was in l\.'; Mrs. Murray did not complain to him that herhufcbacd had been beaten by another patiert; his hands and feet were not frosted; he was afiected with a dropsy or the feet, which might have been mistaken by Mrs. Murray for frost bite; h's feet aud bands were swollen and were of a purple color; tnought Dr. Nichols notified Mrs. Murray of tuo death u! her husband; have no r< collection o: anyone except Dr. McKlm -?iou.g to the asylum and asking about bis ? eaih; it is not, ^afe to accept the stateraeut of a?v iusan<' person as true, unless it is corroborated. J'iKrtck Keaya , an attendant at the asy lum, was recalled and testified that tie at tended the patient, Murray. It was necei ?.ary to wasn him two or three times a da", ilis rcom was warm an J comfoi tavjle. Nothing could have frozen in that ward, lie never complained of being cold. He was a'ways brought down to the reception room when his wife called upon aim. Do not fcnow that she ever saw the r >om In which i e was kept. Murray hal be--u struck by another patient named Chauncey West. Ih did not hurt him much-Just blaci i his eye a little. This was six months previous to his death. His feet and har.Js were sore. No one was present when he die,1. At 7 o'clock in the morning called upon him and saw that he was very weak. Called again soon after and found tha' he was dead. He fi> ijuently fell and bruised himself. The bruises on his face were about the size of a five-ceat nickel; those on his limbs about the same size. There was no vermin oa him. A. H. Ha "yon, the tailor at the asylum, was recalled, and corroborated the testimony of Reagan in all of its essential particulars. TVm. WhiU testified that he was employed for 3 years at the Insane asylum. Is now a car driver. Was in Beech, (iarfleld, White Ash and Sycamore wards. Remember Henry J. Murray. Was with him from May to January. Do not know of a single case of bad treatment towards him. Murray was as helpless as a child The bruise on his face | came from a fall. Did not notice it until they were laying him out. Do not think that the temperature of the ward was ever so low that anything would freeze there. The night watchman's duty Is to keep the pa tients covered up and keep their bed cloth lug on them. There is one watchman on the male and one on the female side. They go through each of the wards at intervals dur ing the night. Never heard or an Insane pa tient who said he was insane. Had at times seen tainted meat there, but it was always returned and good meat sent up in its place. Gen. Loomls had carerul attention. The committee adjourned until Monday morning. 8TAI.K Ci.aims Mr. BUUor: It is a maxim among lobbyists and claim agents that a musty and fishy old claim against the gov ernment, ir well stuck to, is sure to be paid at last In whole or in part. It is belter than a good new oue. The witnesses are com monly unscrupulous and will swear to any point desired. The government in most cases is helpless for defence; the auditors and clerks who would have laughed the claim out of tbe office are removed or dead, or they have resigned; important aud un favorable reports and papers bave been filched from the files; the new auditors know of nosources of information, no names or addresses of witnesses; and tbe interested claim agent, with his great bundles of per jured ex iHirie affidavits, has everything bis own way. To lobbyists aud claim agents there are millions in the privilege of hunting | up stale claims against the government; for. | strange to say, no length of time bars a claim against the United .States. Formerly, there was a statute of limlta tions, but In lt^44i, when Congressmen were | beglnnirg to find what a bonanza lies in ob solete claims, and that it is more profitable to be a lobbyist than a member, the atalutt imu repealed' Not in a manly, fair way, but j sneakingly and cunningly. The rascals got the repealing clause tacked ou to the civil and diplomatic appropriation act, tsee sec. 5. act of August lOtn. l&k>.) It was a blind clause, referring to the statute or limitations merely by act and section, but not stating either substance or subject matter. Many who voted for the appropriation act were not aware that they were breaking down one of the beat bulwarks of the national Treasury. That unfortunate repeal has cdst millions, and until it is blotted rrom tbe statute book it will continue to cost millions to the gov ernment. Among tne many patriots In Cougresa, is there tot one who will undertake to repeal the repeal? Is there not some candidate for the Presidency who will illustrate bis record by an effort to protect the Treasury? My observation has been lODg aud large on this subject, and I do not think that any honest Claim would be barred by a revival or the statute of limitations. Its revival will be opposed, however, by all claim agents in and out of Congress. Yours, ?tc., April 1#76. AUDITOR. 8U3*DAY AT THE C??T1.*!*I AL.-The cen teunlal commission at their session la Phila delphia, last night, decided to close the exhi bition on Sunday, but as a compromise the grounds will be open to the public on that day free of charge.

The resolution has been reconsidered, and the original one, prohibiting the use of the rod, passed. THE BARQUE NIIRV MERRJTT iWVESTiGATiGN Testimony of an Attorney In the Case. At the afternoon session of the committee examining into the alleged connection of Seretary Bristow wild the MaryMerrltt case. H. / vans, ot Kentucky, formerly a law partner of Mr. * eland, spoke of tr.eir con nect.on with the Mary Merritt case, and gave a history of the vessel. He said he came here In the spring or summer of 1S73 in order to secure the remission of the for feiture of the vessel. Gen. Bristow having resigned the office of Solicltor General w.i< at that time in Philadelphia, engaged in the railroad business as an attorney. He stat?d to General Bristow tbe object of his errand, and offered to give him part of tbe compen sation. General Bristow decline! to take a fee. but said he would assist him in present lr g the matter fairly to the Secretary of the Treasury. Secretary Bristow introduced him to the Secretary, and to Mr. Banfieid, the Solicitor,and was informed it was not the policy there to grant auy remission of for lelturepending litigation. Next year tbe at torr.ej s again came on. The Supreme Court of the United States had sustained Judge I>rummond's decision l.i the court be low forfeiting the vessel. They filed a peti tion for a rehearlDg of the case with Secre tary Richardson, who, until a bearing could bad, directed the suspension of any pr-oceed iegs in tbe Mary Merritt case until further ojilers. MR. BRISTOW'S CONDUCT IN T1IE PRFMI?ES was merely an act of kindness, be having deciined all or any compensation, and was merely serving his Kentucky neighbors. General Bristow, when he assisted ths attor neys. said that the Secretary was required to confine himself to the certificate of ibe court alone. He did not argue tbe facts of the case; the judge In that ca?e sal t dis tinctly there was no wilful negligence or fraud. The witness then rea<l several letters addressed to him by General Bristow, by which it appeared that the latter had uo pro fessional connection with tbe case, and was very careful to have this fact clearlv and explicitly understood. The witness related tbe circumstances attending tbe seizure of the vessel, which was for a supposed viola, tlonof law, and the Judgment of the ciurt was for a bond of ?15,ooo. James Murray, concerned in the vessel, owed Wm L. and Stephen E. Trice, who were part owners *10,??o. Tbe witness was their counsel, and knew that they never received one dollar of the money. Witness, lr answer to a question of Secre tary Bristow. repeated that tbe latter never had any understanding or agreement or In tention, so far as he knew, of re Mverlng any money for advice in the case. Gen. Bristow emphatically declined to have anything to do with a fee. NOT THE MAN. Secretary Bristow called tbe attention of tbe witness to that part of the House resolu tion directing the investigation, in which it is said that "oue of the attorneys for tbe owners of the Mary Merritt applied to B. H. Bristow, Secretary of tbe Treasury for a re mission of the forfeiture, to wulch sail Bris iow replied that lie would do nothing himself, but his private secretary could fix it up, and tbe raid attorney met his private secretary and had the forfeiturn remitted." Tbe witness replied thai the mention of the attorney in the extract rea ? certainly does not apply to him. He was not tbe man. Adjourned. To day. Tiic committee this morning hear! E. B. Northrup, editor of the a?n,nercial Th.icsot Milwaukee, who testified thai be wrote tin article in bis paper against Secretary Riis tow and that a U. S. deputy marshal, either Ed. Simpson or Burke, first called his atien tloti to thefac s and agkeibim to work up the ease. II ts knowledge of the case was de rived from Colonel Goodwin, who received his statement from Mr. Johnson aud from John A. Hinze, a detective, the latter ob taining his iniormatlon from Mr. Weiss. The witness knew nothing of the c?se ex cept what he derived from others and by an examination ol the court records. Secretary Bristow a^ked the witiess a quest.on concerning Colonel Goo 1 win. and he wl mess replied he had for the last eight months been engaged exclusively In THK WHISKY KB A CD TRIALS ?t Milwaukee, *--cwUry Erisfow asked the witness whe Lcr Colonel Goodwin was not bis (Bristow's) < pen aud avowed enemy because of his cor.rse In the whisky trials at Milwaukee. Mr. Bright said the committee was not en gaged in an examination of whisky frauds. Secretary Bii6tow said it seemed to him that it was competent to show the motive '01 the attack. Mr. Bright tbougbt Iho question was ir relevant to the investigation, besides Col. Goodwin was not a witness before the com mittee. He did not consider evidence what Col Goodwin said to a third party. Secretary Bristow remarked, that was undoubtedly so, but he desired to show that Col. Goodwin was incited by hostility in instigating this charge, bee?use of his offi cial course In the wblsky tna.s. Mr. Hartzel thought tbe committee bid better sninmon Col. Goodwin, and he could then be in vest!gated as to his motives. Mr. Northrup. after further examination, said Col. Goodwin did not instigate the state ment against Secretary Bristow. tf. K. Wtiss testified that he was formerly Deputy Collector at Milwaukee, aud stated facts relative to the release of tbe Mary Merritt, which he resisted until he secured the moieties. He paid Judge Hubbell *">oo out of gratitude for not favoring tbe remis sion of the bond in the Mary Merritt case He testified that after Gen. Bristow made his argument before Secretary Richardson he withdrew having said that he merely ap peared In behalf of neighbors and friends, having uo pecuniary interest in the matter. J'AID AN M. C *500. Mr. Weiss also testified that he paid Gerry W. Hazelton, a member of Congress,-"?<>0 for arguing agaiust the remission of the bond before the Treasury department. Mr. Northoup was asked by Secretary Bristow what other position in Milwaukee tcan that of a detective did Mr. Heuzle hold? A. He is president or tbe Central demo ciatlc committee of the city. Mr. Weiss ?Well, to make the story com plete, 1 will state to the committee that 1 am the president. The chairman, (Mr. Ely.)-Well, that is not at all discreditable. I Laughter.) APPROVED THK CLAIM. Mr. Lyman, in charge of the navigation division of ihe^Treasurj de partment, test I fie l I bat when the case was first presented for iemis6iou while Secretary Ricnaidsou was at the head of the Treasury department, be was opposed to it. After giving it further examination iu 1*15 he thought.as tbe vessel was shown to have been libelled for only a technical violation of law, the fine should be remitted. In this conclusion he was en dorsed by Assistant Secretary of the Trea sury Hartley. Upon the recommendation of Lyman and Hartley, Acting Secretary Co nam, in ihe absence of Sec retary Bristow, issued tne warrant of remission.

Boors Bonus?Four years ago a number of bankers and brokers In New York were Imposed upon in sums amounting in tbe aggregate to about *87.000 by means of coun terfeit 7.30 IT. S. bonds.

The late story printed in Pomeroys Mem ocrat tha' John Wilkes Booth and the rejel Captain Beall, who was tried anl hanged at one of the forts in New York harbor, were fast frier.ils?sworn to each other; that Booth beiug at Washington when Beall was con demned to death, and hearing of the sen. fence the night before It was to be executed, went to 6ee Hon. J. P. Hale, then of the Sen ate. at a late hour, and stated his purpose to see the President and save bus friend that night; that they went to the house of Hon. John W Forney and got him to go with thtm to the President; that Mr. Lincoln re ceived them, and heard Booth's appeal for mercy and his confession of the conspiracy between himself and others at M m. Surratt "s hoopc toat>duct the President, Ac., aud that Booth on his bended kneea, and prostrated befmre the President, weeping like a child, besought pardon for Beall. that at last "pity won" the President, and he solemnly nrom lsed the desired pardon, after which BooUi, Hale, and Forney left the President still m tears. Next morning, the story goes, when Mr Lincoln stated his promise to pardon BeaTl to Secretary Seward, that gentlemtn remonstrated against it. and satisfied him ? hat he ought not to keep bis promise to Booth, and that he did not. For this, says me storv, Booth killed the President. Col. Forney positively contradicts this yarn in the Philadelphia Press of yesterday, xu'l says be never saw Booth, to his koowl e. ge, in bis life. He says "Mr. Pomeroj's I democrat, a well Known and highly enter prising western newspaper," is wrong, but tl.inks he may have signed a letter asking for Beall's pardon. He adds that if Mr. Lin Coin had made a promise to pardon Peal', he would have fulfilled it at all hazards, and that Mr. Seward, with his gentle and gen erous bearing to the south, would have been the last to ask him to break bis word.
