FROM OUR SPECIAL CORRESPONDENT. Washington, Feb. 29, 187H THX LEOALITT OF THE I.EQAL TENDER ISSUE IX TIME OF PEACE?A NEW IDEA FOR THE SETTLEMENT OF THE CUKHEXCT QUESTION. Some observers hero havo come to I ho conviction that, although no further Inflation of tho currency is to be dreaded, on tbo other hand thcro is no apparent prospect of actually restoring tho specie standard by positive legislation, aud they aro, thoroforo, of opinion that it is tlmo to tiring this legal tender question before the Supremo Court upon a new Issue that has not yet boon passed upon. Tho Court has determined that tho tssuo of tho legal tender notes was lawful in time of war to meet the exigency of war, but this original act provides that they ahull only bo reissued while the exigency remains in force. It Is hold that tho exigency was tlio necessity of collecting a forced loan, and that when a legal tender note Is returned to the Treasury In liquidation of a tax It has ended Its functiou; that In being relumed to tho Treasury lor such a tax it conveyed to tlio government a title to tho thing borrowed by Us Issue. In tho Treasury it is therefore not money, but only ovidrnro of a debt paid, as much ts a receipted bill. If reissued it works tho collection ol a now forced loan In time of poace, when no exigency exists, and it Is insisted that such reissue is unlawful upon the very reasoning by which tho Court Justified the original ssuo in time of war. It is believed that Iho politicians of all stripes would >o much roller cd if the courts could tako lu i question >ut of their way, and that fho common senso of thapoo;ilo would support the Supreme Court in a decision that would forever bar tho use of irredeemable government lotos in timo ol peaco and plenty. It is not Improb mho mat mo question may no Drought bolero the Su- ) ;>retno Court very soon by the refusal by citizens to receive In payment of a uebt logal tender notes recently ssucd from the Treasury, and bearing a date which is itsell sufficient evidence that they tvoro issued since the exigency for which thoy wcro allowed has ceased. THE LETTER TO THE WESTERN DISTRICT ATTORNEYS IN THE LIGHT OF THE INSTRUCTIONS FROM THE TREASURY DEPARTMENT. The general anxiety that Attorney General Plerrepont should "expose" tbo facts which, as he asserted In hts letter to tho HKRAt.n, required the letter to the district attorneys, will be increased when the following Instructions by Secretary Brlstow on tho same subject, Issued last October, Is read. Mr. Pierropont'g letter to the district attorneys and also his letter to tho Hkrald havo been understood In some quarters as imputing blame to the district attornoys and to the Treasury Department, under whoso Instructions hy law they art In rnvciitio cases. The following telegram Irom tho Secretary of the Treasury shows what tlieso instructions were:? Trkastoy DsrARTWRRT, Oct. 12, 1875. BtrriiRD Wilson, earn United States District Attorney, St. Louis, Mo.:? It Is not easy at this distance to say what, If anything, should bo roncedcd by tho government in particular rases In order to reap greater benefits in others. Tbo District Attorney and associates, being on the ground and 10 possession of all the facts, are bolter j qualified to deride such questions. I would say, generally. however, that unless Important ends are to ho j gained In other cases 1 would make no lorms with any indicted party. Tho question In hand does not relate nlono to the amount of money Involved In these particular cases, but nflocls the integ. rity of the revenuo, and eotnpleto success in these prosecutions would be of great value to the government hereafter. Thorclore, I would say to the parties w ho oiler to surrender and ask lorms, that they should H'illiT tu lliu I.IIWIII.-, or HI SUCH Ol Ilium as HIP}admit to bo truo, mako tlioir statements to tho Court, throw themselves on Its clemency and subniit to sui'h puuitibmRnt as tho Court may'pronounec, I would make no agreement in advance lo'r suspension of judgment, nor would I ask tho Court, after plea of guilty, to susoend sentence In any case unless, upon hearing llio statement of the parly In o|ien ronrt. It should be deemed proper to use him as a witness ncntnst a greater otlender The conviction anil punishment of corrupt and guilty officials are of the first Importance, and all proper means to this end should be used. Tbc Attorney General and Commissioner of Internal Revenue concur in tbts view. B. U. BRISTOW, Secrotary. It Is interesting to eotuparo this with tho Attorney General's letter. run transfer or tiie Indian bureau? TRADERS AND PHILANTHROPISTS WORKINO IN CONCERT. 8'rong efforts are malting to provent tho transfer of Indian affairs to the War Department. It Is curious that perrons supposed to be profitably engaged In Indian contracts and others known as philanthropists unite In this opposition. A proposition has boon ijnletly urged to create a new Indian bureau, with a retni-independent position, and amonablo partly to the Interior, partly to the War Department, and partly to nobody. It Is en-tain, however, that the members of the Indian Ring oppose the transfer to tho War Department, and will tight it hard, and the measure, acknowledged to be nccesfary by every ntan who has stsdied tho Indian question, will have great ditflcnlly In passing. General Grant urged it In tho first years of his Administration, and It Is hoped by some that he will bring his potent Influence to the help of this reform when ihe time comes. A member of tho House remarked on tho Indian ptesllon that he wonld he willing to settle It so far as Arirona IS concerned, hv giving overy white Inhabitant ?f that Territory $fino por annum to livo somewhere slse. lie thonght It would be a measure of economy.

HOW A DISTINGUISHED SENATOR 18 UOKEU. Senator Thurman says that he is overrun with letters and pamphlets on the finances. Every man has some pet schemo for paying the national dclit and flooding the country with cheap currency to be quoted at par. lie receives what would make a hundred printed pagos every (lay. One reformer wrote hint tho other day that the government ought to adopt a financial policy so that a poor man could borrow $100 as easily a tnlllionnalro could borrow $1,000. He asked that Mr. Thurman get Congress to pass a law making It thg duty of the Secretary of the Treasury to loan money to any person who might apply. To have the spirit of tho proposod law fully carried out he would have postmasters appointed as loan agents and authorized by law to leud money to any citizen on renl estate, personal property, rattle, horses, Jackasses, sheep, sw ine, Aro. In fact, to take uny kind of property us security for such loans. During n former session of Congress, when tlio finances were the chief subject of discussion, he received a communication from a Westorn man whlcli began with these words, "Mrhy don't you Congressmen stop talking and pass a lawgiving American alliens $20 apiece ?"

THE INDIAN INVESTIGATION?DAMAGINO FACTS AGAINST EX-COMMIKSIONEIl SMITH. | The Indian investigating sub-committee, with Judgo Wilnhlre ns chairman. Is developing sotno Important evidrnce against cx-Commlssioner Smith and tho Kings. Mr. Eby, bis former clerk In tho rocord department of tbo bureau, has been before tho committee with damaging facts, which are supported by documentary evidence. Congressman Page appears as Smith's counsel. nosier, the beef contractor of Carlisle, Pa., has his agents at work here, and ho htrnneH makes frequent trips to tho Capitol to see his favorite Congressmen. Tho committee Is working very hard and at a disadvantage, because some of the most valuable witnesses aro In the far West and In Europe. GFNFBAI WiFH INtTTflM nfCPiTrtlCC WAsnmr.Tos, Fob. 20, 187(1 TOE EMMA MITE INVESTIGATION?CONTINUATION OK LYON'S TESTIMONY REGARDING GENERAL BCHENCK'S CONNECTION 'WITH TIIB SPECULATION. The Committee on Forelgh Affair* this morning resumcd tho Investigation of tlio Emma Mino speculation. Senator Morton Appeared, and having boon sworn at bis own request, mario bis statement. Mr. Lyon then resumed his testimony from yesterday, saying, among other things, that General Scbenrlc received 300 shares in addition to the 600 previously owned by him, which sold for ?2.7 a share, or ?3 premium after the quality of the mlno bad been magnified. Professor Slllimon was at Salt laike City with Williams, an English director of tho Emma Mine Company. Stewart left the session of tho Scnato In the winter of 1872, and soon thereafter the famous telegram, signed by Sllliman, Williams and Hu/sey, was sent to l.ondon, representing that largo beds of ore hod been discovered at the Emma Mine. This was considered very rcmarkablo. Tho telegram was made public on the morning of tho 0th of April, 1872. The new discoveries were represented as 8,000 tons, worth $2,000 a ton, or $10,000,000. The witness related that In a conversation between Park and himself, Park said It waa hard for Gcrferal Bchenck to live on $17,000 a year; he had to bny dressea for members of bis faintly which cost $700 apiece to go to Queen Victoria's drawing room, and tho dress nould be worn only onco. Park did not blame General Schrnck for wanting to make money. At another time Park said ho was going to liavo a little game with the General, who waa a good ^oker player. The witness testified that Albert Grant, tho promoter him that be gave Scnetor Slowart 2,000 shores of tbn stock to become a director himself and to assist In getting Mr. ftehenek's name on the Board. I'arko Informed Hie witness tbat Kisher, of Vermont, an Intimate friend of his, owed General Pcbonek ?3,000 sterling for services rendered In a land grant which, perhaps, was disposed of In Holland. I'arko wanted Bchenck to give Kisher an opportunity to make aomethlng, and Se.henck afterward said ho fonnd Kisher a very valuable man. Klsber wrote articles lor tho Is> n don Mining Journal, paying wry large price* for their publication, and they were extravagant In pralae of tho nehneoa of the Rmina Mino, and of n most extraordinary character aa to mtarepresentation. On June 4, 1872, the Kmma Mine literallyfcnvcd In or collapsed, and has not been since repaired. When Stewart was asked how they could satisfy the Kngllsh stockholders for the non-production of oro, he replied that waa easily managed. They could say that the snowa of Utah were so deep as to prevent hauling, but they oould make up for lost time during the summer. Patke wrote to Anderson, connected with the company, on the 24th of July, 1*72, after hi" return from 5alt Lake City, that, while De expected to see In the Kmma Mine large bed* of ore, the eight of them went far above hi* expectation* There wax no report concerning the vaet product* of the mine bet what fell ahort of the truth. On euch f?fc? repreaentatlona the atock, a* a oouiequenoe, advanced. The committee, at twelve o'clock, took a rcceu until half paat twe. [_ The oomaittec not la Ute afternoon and dncMtd to %, ' continue the investigation. They hare summoned e* Senator Stewart, who is now In California, and T. W. Park?, who is In South America. Tno.con>mtttee will examine In a day or two tbo testimony of General Schcnck, taken in Kngland, concerning his Km ma Mine connection. The investigation will he thorough, and a full opportunity will ho given to General Schonek and bis friends 10 bo beard on the subject. Mr. Lyoo, the witness before the Committee on For eign Atluirs did not say in bis testimony yesterday, at tias boon erroneously reported in some of the newspapers, that benator Morion agreed to the proposition of ex-Scnator Stewart to accept a lee of f20,000 to assist in the removal of Judge McKean from the Utah Bench and in the case genorally. The witness merely spoke yesterday of the offer being made to Senatoi i Morton to assist in the suit, but did not say It was ac" I copied by him. MKKSAGB FROM TUB PRESIDENT REGARDING I THE DEFICIENCY AT RED CLOCD AGENCY? EORSTABT CHANDLER IN EXPLANATION. The President sent tho following special message t? j Congress to day: Executitk Maxsiox, Feb. 28, 1874 To thk Senate and Housk or Kki'ukskjctativks:? i 1 lay l)ifore you herewith a commuuiration from ths . Secrutary of the lutorior. of date 28th Inst., upon ths ! subject of defleieucy of supplies at the Rod Cloud Agency, Nebraska. This matter lias been already presented to you by .the Secretary, and the House ol Representatives has requested nn investigation bv a ; tniiitary ofheer of tho cnuso of the deficiency. I 1 have taken proper steps to comply with this request of the House, but the present need of supplies is not disputed. A proi longed delay in furnishing provisions to these Indians will cause groat distress, and be likely to provoke raids | on white settlements, and possibly load to a general ; outhroak of hostilities. I therefore deem it proper to I invite vour attention to Iho Importance of early and I favorable action upon the estimate* heretofore and ! herewith submitted. These osttmalus and the views ol | the Secretary in regard to this emergency meet with ! my (till concurrence, and I recomtnerid tliat tho appropriations asked lor bo tnado at tho earliest dav practicable. l\ S. GRANT. Secretary Chandler, in the communication referred to, states tho reasons for tho existing deficiency, which, in substance, aro:?First, tho diminished appropriations mado by Congress last year, and, second, unusual issues to Indintis visiting tho agency to raoet the lJInck IIills Commission In September Inst. Ths Secretary says Iho case has additional urgency, from tho tact that over 1,000 members ol Silting UuU's band, horetoforo dollant and actively hostile, have come il to the Rod Cloud Ageucy in compliance with messages previously sent to them, aud it is Important that any measures looking to the disintegration of this hereto fore unitod band, and tbo destruction of Sitting Bull'i authority should bavo proper encouragement. In view also o( the probable submission of SlUin| Hull's bund to tho government, and their possible arrival at au agency where supplies aro lacking, Soeretary Chandler indorses a recommendation of Commissioned Smith that an appropriation of $50,000 bo granted, In addition to tho amount of $225,000 already asked tor last month. FAILURE OF THE CAUCUS COMMITTEE TO AGRKH ON A FINANCIAL MEASURE?TWO REPORTS TO BE MADE. The r.ontorenoe of the democratic caucus committee Inst night developed the tact of the Impossibility of arriving at a unanimous agreement on the financial question. Kight of tbo thirteen members favor tb? amended proposition for an annual three per cent coin rcserroby the national banks and the Secretary of the Treasury, and for the repeal of so much of the Specie Resumption act as Jllxcs the time for that purpose, namely, tho 1st of January, 1879. The other five members of the cominlttoe present tho single proposition for the ropeal of the clause in question. Being thus divided, two reports will ho submitted to the caucus.
