Tbe investigation of Mr. Blaine's connec tion w.tn toe I V'eRockand Fortfcmlth railroad tord ma.ter was resumed before tbe tub-Committee on tbe Judiciary this morning. Jmines Mulligan was recalled, but before giving additional evidence asked to make a statement. Ke said as coon as be arrived In tbls city he and Mr. Flsber received a writ ten Invitation from Mr. Blaine to call upon him at bis liouse, but be declined to do so. Mr. Flsber. however, did go and saw Mr. Blaine at bis house. Yesterday afternoon Mr. Blaine called upon witness and asked to see certain letters In his possession. He (Blaine) begged hard to see tbem, speaking of tbe fate of bis wire and his six children. He almost went on his knees, and said he contemplated suicide. He offered wit ness a consulship. Witness let Mr. Blaine look at them. He took all the letters and read them over. He asked witness what he proposed to do with the letters, and .begged that they be turned over to him. He asked for one of tbe letters In particular. Witness said be would not publish them nnlets it bccame necessary; that be had heard that tbe Blaine party Intended to try to break down his evidenoe given yesterday, and that if such an attempt was made he would publish the letters to substantiate his own statement. Mr. Blaine came back again to bis room at tbe Riggs house soon after wards?about 5 o'clock?and asked to see tbe letters again, promising to return tbem as soon as he read them. Witness agreed to let bimdoso, and Mr. Blaine followed him up to bis room. Tbe letters were banded Mr. Blaine, and he refused to return them. What be (tbe witness) wanted now was. that the cx nimittee demand that Mr. Blaine be made to return the letters which be holds and refuses to surrender. Mr. Blaine admitted last nlglit In the pres ence of several persons that he bad the letters, but said that be would not give them up. Wltnessdld notget the letters surrep titiously; Mr. Fisher handed tbem to him to make any proper ute of tbem, and if neces sary to produce tbem before the commttt.' 9. He wanted to say that he bad no unfriendly feeling whatever towards Mr. Blaine. Wit ness surrendeied 18 or 19 letters to Mr. B'.alne and one statement In relation to the North em Pacific railroad, all signed by Blaine, Addressed to Mr. Fisher. Messrs. Atkins and Fisher were present last evening when Mr. Blaine called npon witness. Blaine also f ok the memorandum tbat witness bad made of the contents of the letters. There was no person present when he took them except witness and Mr. Blaine. Blaine wrote on Monday evening for witness ?o call upon him; witness refused logo. Mr. Blaine called upon him tbe next morning, and said be heard that witness had been sub p<enaed before the committee. Witness an swered "yes," and showed him the subpoena. This conversation was in the barber shop. Blaine said be heard that witnos was un friendly towards him. He askcJ witness what he was going to testily to. Witness told him tbat be deciinr 1 to tell him, and tegzed him not to ask witness anything In rtlaMon to the matter. Witness said that be wanted to go before the committee un inmmekl Fisher came to the hotel three ln:ea fiom Blaine's bouse for witness, and asked that be let Mr. Bialoe see the letters in question; but witness decilncJ to do so then. Witness said he knew the contents or the whole letter, and was going on to state It. abeu Mr. Blaine aro :e and paid be objected to bav'ng the witness bay anything lu egard to the letters. Mr. Fry, counsel tor Mr. Blaine, also ob jected to the witness stating anything kn regard to the letters, a iding that Mulligan nad taken tbem frora the safe or Fisher; !hat there was nothln? 'n any of let'ers in rela'<on to any bonds eold to Fisher, Caldwtll, Tom Scott c ? the U. P. R R , but 'here mlgbt be a re4"erence to the Little Itock and Foil Smith railroad. MR. BLAINE DftSIRKS TO MAKB A STATE MENT. Mr. Blaine said be desired to make a state ment in regard to ti e matter, that he thought it was unjust to proceed further without let ling blm be heard. The matter Is now going all over the country to the afternoon papers, and be desired bis statement to go also. A discussion followed upon whether the witness should be allowed to relate the con tents of tbe letters from memory. Tbe cbairmau of the oommlttoe said that as Mr. Fry bad admitted that Mr. Blaiae bad tbe letters, abd as be was apprenslve tbat garbled statements wsuld be male about them, that be should produce the ori ginals; that the remedy was In his own bands, and be should apply it. Mr. Mulligan stated that Mr. Blaine said to blm yesterday that if tbe letters were published it would rain blm. Mr. Blaine asked witness if he invited a consulship, and witness replied "no." Mr. Blaine.?Who was present then?" A. No one but you and I. Tbe committee then, without taking auy action at that time on the statement, began an examination or the witness Sullivan. He produced the original memorandum book of the sales of bonds. In reply to a question as to what kind of bonds did he (Blaine) get, witness said *130,000 in land bonds a id * 2 500 of first mo. tgage. Tbe Maine men wbo bought bonis paid their money to wit ness. Tbe bends were seut by express to the Maine parties. Witness gave *40,000 lu bonds to Blaine and paid tbe rest. THE MAINE SUBSCRIBERS.

BLAHTE'S STATEMENT III BtPLY TO MULLIGAN. Mr. Blaine, under oath, made the follow ing etatmeni in reply to the testimony of Mmilgan. . Mr. Blaine:?This witness opened his state ment tbls moinlng by detailing some facts In regard to the possession by him or oertaln letters which came into my possession. To begin where he did, I received through a third party a telegram on Monday stating that Mr. Fisher and Mr. Mulligan were on their way as witnesses, tbe latter unfriendly. Just at tbat time mv mind waa ooislderably filled with tbe story about the Northern Pacific matter which had come out through the letter of Mr. Aquiiia Adams who waa formerly connected with Mr. Fisher in business, and whan ascertained on what train Mr. Pisher was coming, I sent a servant with a note to his hotel, saylrc tbat I would like to have him aDd Mulligan eall at my house at their leisure, in relation to the Northern Pacifie matter and Mr. Adams' letter. Mr. Fisher called; Mulligan was not willing to ca<l. I called at tne Rlggs House, and I foand Mai llgan sitting lu a barber's chair. I shook bards wltn blm?we are not new acquaint ances, I have known him 23 years?and I said, addressing him as I had been In tbe habit or doing," James^ they report that yon arebereaaeneasyormlna." He made aoms Joenlar or rather evasive answer, and than said that tie didn't want to eome to my house bseanae ho didn't wish to oooveree with me here In any way about toe matter before it* testified- I had a little Mulligan bad a good many of my private letter*, that be did not know, or did out think, that they hore upon the ?abject of In vestigation, bat that they embraced a large portion of the baslnees which, for a number of yean, had been going on between Mr. Fisher and my self. Mr. Fisher has been an Intimate acquaintance of mine for more than twenty years. He waa for a considerable period associated with my wife a brother. In business In Boston, and Mr. Mntllgan was the confidential clerk for many years of another brother of my wife's in busi ness, so that 1 know the parlies intimate ly. Mr. Fisher Intimated that Mulll gan bad these letters, and, without distinctly saying so, be gave uie to under stand that he was not the least reluctant to get them all out, whether they bore upon the matter under Investigation or not. 1 did not converse with Mnlllgan at all until yester day, when I discovered, I thought, a very great readiness on his part to travel out of the record and tell a great many things re. lating to my private business,and which did not belong at all to the subject of Investiga tion; and seeing that, I did not want htm to go Into those matters nntll I could have a little conversation with him on the subject of the private letters. I thought It was highly Improper and urjust that he should do so, because ft broadened the field or examination and prevented my having a report or verdiot upon the case particularly In band. So the committee was adjourned, by Judge Lawrcnoe's request, af ter I bad spoken with him. After the ad journment I called on the three gentlemen Mr. Atkins, Mr. Fisher, and Mr. Mulligan? at the Rigg* bonse, and in the parlor of Mr. Atkins 1 had some conversation with Mulli gan about these letters, an 1 asked him to show them to me. lie did show them, with some apparent reluctance. I said to him, "Why, you are not afraid or my keeping them, are you?" and he said "Mo," and banded them to me. I looked them all over, and discovered that there was only one letter in the list that at all bore upon the question before the committee, and even that, only b>a forced construction and not In reality. I handed tnem back to him. The conversation tnen became some what geneial between the four gentlemen, Including myself, In the room. After a little while Mr. Mulligan went up stairs to Mr. Fisher's room, right over head. I was talk ing with Mr. Atkins and Mr. Fisher for* few moments, and then I started up to Fish er's room and knocked at the door and was admitted, and there I talked with Mr. Mul ligan for some time. I may have been there, I think, the better part or an hour, but the form that he gives the interview about my offering him a con sulship and about my being ruined, and all that sort or thing, li mere fancy. Nothing ot the kind occurred. 1 talked as calmly as I am talking this morning. Very soon I said to him, "1 would like to see one letter among those." I wanted to see the letter on which he based his testimony. He handed me the package. I looked them all over, aud I said to him, as I said afterwards in the presence of Mr. Fisher and Mr. Atkins, "Now yon keep that letter which you think bears on this matter (that Is, the letter that he has testified to this morning) I am per fectly willing you should keep that, out here is a mass or my private correspond ence, covering many years, and detailing matters that have nothing to do with the subject of the Investigation, which It would probably be embarrassing to me to have published, as any man's private cor respondence would be and I don't want It published. You ought to give me those let ters; you have no right to them. Taereare only two persons In the world that have a right to them; one is the writer and the other the person to whom they were written. Now, If you will give those letters to Mr, FUher I will be abundantly satlsfed. They will then be In rightrul ownership; they will be in sare hands.-' Mr. Fisher hal before, himself, in my presence, requested that they should be given to him, in the first conversation In the lower room. Mulligan refused, lie said he didn't know what might transpire In his examination to-day, and he said, with a good many "By Gods" that he was going to bold those letters for his protection, bis vin dication. I said, "when you get through the examination, will you give them to me then?" Ue said no; it anybody "Impaua" my motives (he pronounced it la that way) <>r in any way questions my veracity, In the papers, 1 shall publish these letters." I said, "Yoa do not think 1 would attack you in the papers'/ There is nothing to make me attack you in the papers." He said, well, ir anybody did, he should publish them. I bad been running over the letters for some time. The first time when he handed them 'o me be showed reluctance, and, aa I have stated, i remarked, "You are not arrald or my keeping them, are you?" and he answer ed, "Oh, no;" and handed them to me. but he eave them to me the aeoond time without any assurance at all, and without anything being said about it, bat I had no Ilea or lolng anything elae than banding them t>ack to him until be announced bla purpose and determination that no matter who should (juettion his tes timony or impeach or "lmpaa" bis veracity, be would pabllah the letters. I said: "These are private letters; these are letters that relate to matters that have no more connection or relationship with the examination now going on before the Judi ciary Committee than the man in the moon, and It would be grossly unfair that yoa should treat my private correspondence In ibat way." I then said to him: "Will you ring the bell for a servant and tell him to *end Mr. Fisher ap from the lower room." He did, and very soon Mr. Fisher came up, and we bad a little conversation, in which I repeated, before Mr. Fisher, what Mulli gan bid said-his declaration, or rather bis menace, and I said: "This is very grossly unralr, Mr. Fisher." I then said ibat I would be glad ir Mr. Fisher would take charge of the letters; that they were rightfully in bis possession or rightfully In mine, but not In any third person's. Mulli gan repeated again in Mr. Fisher's presence this declaration, that be woald feel himself Hi liberty to pabllsh those letters at any time he saw fit ir anybody should provoke blm unto wrath by any comments on bis testimony; and, owing to the somewhat en larged racilitles in the American press for making criticisms upon everybody, I found that my private correspondence hung oy the thread or his taking offence at any of the thousand and one paragraphs that might be set afloat in the papers, and I said to blm, ??Under these circumstances I will not give those letters up." And in order that he vr ifcbt not be mistaken as to the ground or ray action I called Mr. Atkins rrom the lower room, for I wanted to tell him toe ground on which I stood. I said, "1 will not return these letters because yoa threaten to make a use of them which is Illegitimate, which Is unfair, which Is entirely unjust, aud I have no Idea that any man shall take my private correspondence and hold It as a menace over my bead, to be used at his beck or option for bis own purposes or ander somebody's direction." We went down stairs, and be repeated and reaffirmed his statement with very great emphasis and I said,"Very good, I will retain the letters." When I went home I sent tor two Meads, one a member or the House of Representa tives and the other a lawyer in this city, and 1 laid every on* of those letters before them? these letters whleh would "disgraoe me for Ufa," and "send my children sorrowing to the grave," and "deprive me or polltioal honors." and all that?I sat down and read every one of them Just in tbe order in whlon they were marked and numbered by Mul ligan himself. I tben said to these gentle men, after consultation, "I am going to sub mit these letters to two of the wisest and best counsel that I can find In the eity or Washington tomorrow, (that la, to day.) snd 1 will be guided entirely by them m tbe action I shall t?ke before tbe Jadletary Committee. If they say that any of tbose letters I should be in dnty bound to deliver; if they intimate to me that there is anything In tbe letters which bears remotely or otherwise, upon the subject of this Investigation, tbose letters shall be delivered; bat I eball wait and be guided by their opinion as to wbat I ought to do in tbe premises " As to tbe balk of those letters, yoa might last as wall send to my boose and take any pack age from my flies of oorrespondenos for tbe last five years and put it in here as evidence in this Investigation, liany of them relate to business transac ts s which are passed and settled up, and which I do not want revived?not that there is anything In them whleh Is la any degree embarrassing. I have read ttkem over freely to those two mends, and as I say, will mad them over freely to tbose two eopneeL There is nothing In those letters that I shall have oooaalooto blush over. Tbe remit Is. that I postponed my action nntll I eoald have thia eoofceooe InJJjy* It. ^ mage 1 and I, after very long and, In them *ln. very pleasant busings relations, extending back I to a period when I wm a very young man, bad a final settlement, In whlcb we ex changed receipt*In full. I think the precise data wm September 21,1*72. It was then ?aid that all latter* on either side, and all paper* and scrap* of papers suould be given a, and I supposed they were given up aaa letter* bad been written carelessly, as business letter* often are. I got a great many letter* from blm.and I gave up all U?at I bad. Mr. Mulligan claims that Mr Fi*ber gave these letter* to him; that ha has a right to them, and that he has tbe right todl* poee of that correspondence, which 1*.all of it, private. Wben I said to him that it was all a private correspondence be sail, "Why a public man has no private correspondence? can have no private oorraspondauce.*' II* says, "the letter of a public man is public.' That was the ground he took In Conversa tion, and especially if a letter was not marked private. Some of these letters, how ever, are marked "private," some are marked "personal" and some "confidential." I Insisted that It was tbe grossest possible outrage. I said, "You take tbese letter* be fore the oommlttee, without the committee designing me any wrong; they go out to the world, and then when It is seen that they have no possible relevancy aM that there Is objectionable In the publication has been achieved and accomplished, and it will be too late for me to Interpose any objection then. In other worils tne very teat of their admtssablllty Involves all that I myself protest against which Is the use or entirely private letters whicn have no relevancy whatever to the case In haad. I took that ground, and on that ground I stand now. I Justify myself for not return ing tbe letters. It was he that was la unlaw ful poesesslon of tnoee letter*. He bai no right to those letters. I take that ground most distinctly, that there are but two men that can possess a rightful Interest In a pri vate correspondence?the writer and the per son written to. %nd on that right I stand. Now 1 shall produce the letter with great freedom on which Mr. Mulligan baa based hi* testimony, that 1 acknowledged having received the KH.OOO, and I ahail show you that It haa no relation to that subject. ? By Mr. Frye.?Do not some of those letter* relate to matter* transpiring long before you became a member of Congress? A. Yea long before I became a member of Congress for the first time. Tne Chairman:?A* 1 understand you and a* I especially understand from Mr. Mu 111 gan you bad possession of these letter* on two occasions? Mr. Blaina?Yes. Tbe Cbalrman:?On the first occasion you promised to return tbem. Mr. Blaine?It did not assume so formal a shape as a promise. I thought be exhibited a little hesitancy In handing the letter* to me, and I said, "You don't think I would keep them, do you?" It was rather an Inter Jectlonal remark. I do not know whether Mr. Flaber or Mr. Atkins were in the room wben I first got tbem, but bom of them came in while 1 was reading and looking over tbe letters. I handed them back to Mr. Mul ligan. Tbe Chairman.?Why did you have tbe second Interview In Mr. Mulligan's room la the absence of these two gentlemen? Mr. Blaine.?It was Mr. Mulligan who had left the room, not I. I wanted to satlsry myself with respect to a specific letter. Fif teen letters make a rather volumlnou* cor respondence to remember all about. I went and told him I should like to see a specific letter, and he handed me tbe package. Tbe Chairman?Wben you got the letters the second time it was your Intention to re tuna them to Mr. Mulligan? Mr. Blaine.?Yes. The Chairman-You changed your inten tion upon his declaration that if bis veracity were assailed be would publish tbe letters? Mr. Blaine.?Yea?that he sboull attack me If anybody else attackel blm. Tbe Chairman?I ask at your bands the production of those letters for the perusai of the committee, (and not for publication,) that the committee may see for themselves whether they bear upon the question. Mr. Blaine.?In private? The Chairman ?No, *lr, with no privacy; but I certainly will uot make tbe.n public unless they bear upon tbe question. Mr. Blaine ?I will take occasion to con sult my counsel in regard to it. Tbe Chairman.?You decline then to pro dee* them? Mr. Blaine.?For tbe present I decline. Tbe Cbalrman iben askel Mr. Blaine to ? rod nee me memorandum made by Mr. [uUlaan containing a summary of me let ters. Mr. BlalLe teplled that If Mulliga* bad no right to the letters he had no rlgbi to tbe memorandum?if he haa no right to a private letter he had no right to a copy of it. Mr. Lawrence.?You havesa'd mat certain statements of Mr. Mulligan were "fancy." Mr. Blaine.?Yes, I will explaiu that. The conversation was a long one. I have known Mr. Mulligan a long time, and we have bad a good deal of conversation at various times. On mis occasion we got to talking about public matters, and be spoke of me miseries of public life, and said he did not see how anybody could be Induced to enter it. He spoke at me same time about going abroad, ?tatlng that be had been here some twenty odd years, and thought or going abroad to vialt his friend*. I said, "I wonder you have not got tired or me humdrum or tbeoount lng room," and I Jokingly remarked whether be would not have liked to go abroad in ?ome official capacity. A* Mr. Mul"gan haa presented It here, It would acem mat I had aaked him to accept a consulship. There waa nothing or mat kind whatever. Mr. Lawrence? Waa anything said about suicide? Mr. Blaine?Not a word in me world. Mr. Mulligan aakrd Mr. Blaine whether, on hi* oath, be would say mat be had not used the word auiclde. Mr. Blaine?I do. most decidedly. The committee adjourned until ?\ to-mor row morning. FORTY-FOURTH CONGRESS.
