He refer to the appointment of Colonel Merritt and others in the rece of Congress, and to the reforms which tbv have alreadv in-augnrati d. and say the restoration 0 Arthur and Cornell would he a serious injnrv to the public service, involving loss of public revenue and an incr-as of expenditure. It would establish coitant irritation and struggle between old abuses and reforms that are sought to he accomplished. It would be tmjtirt to tho president and embarrasr-ing to the secretary of the treasury. General Arthur's term of service expires Le- j cernber 17, 1870, and his restoration would be ! but temporary, even if the incsident should j not avail himself of bis legal power to send i another name to the senate or to SJfpend him after tNe adjournment of congress. Every marked success (,f the administration of Collector Merritt and Naval Officer Hurt would seem to entkle them to recognition by the senate, and to their confirmation. Accompanying this letter of Mr. Sherman's are statistical tables showing the operations of the port of New York, and incisures containing the reports above referred to of special agents, and also the report of the Jay commission. UEI'LIES OV J -K ACCUSED. General Arthur Kipl Jes the F1e Charges sod Kiplams the true Outs. Tlie letter of Collector Arthur is dated January 21, 1879, and is addressed to the Hon. Koscoe Conkling. He says he thinks he w.U have no difficulty is satisfying the senate that, if, as is presumable, the cate of tlie serretarr of (lie troasnrv presents all thatcaii be said against bis administration of t lie office of collector. His superinteiideiicy was in direct accord with the laws, uud tint the act of the administration in removing him was an indirect violation ot every principle of ju-tice. He says that removal is a stiuma on the removed otrieer, even if the first notice of remov al is accompanied, as was the case with him, with the offer of a foreign, appointment under another department. During i he period of nearly seven years in which he occupied the ioI-lector's oltice, there was much less complaint against tho administration of the New York custoin-hoiise than for many years before. It is impoitaut that the circumstances of the appointments and the methods of action of the Jay coin mission SHOULD BE KNOWN TO THE SENATE, and ho refers to his letter of November 23, 1877, in which he described the methods of that commission. If the scnato will take the trouble to examine the testimony of trie Jay commission thev will come to the conclusion that there is but little to he ir out the general allegations contained ill its report. Jn reference to granting free permits for imported goods without the authority .of law, Mr. Arthur savs he can trace it back eighty years. It wis reserved for Mr Sherman tu u. like the discovery that this, practice oi eigbtv years' standing was without authority of law; and, ascertaining i he fact, ho calls for my leuioval. This did not stop it, and still the practice continue in full force, unchanged and uncontrolled under tho acting collector, and Mr. Sherman continues to furnish to him the very blanks used in making these permits out. Since the acting collector came into ollice not ltrt than l.SOOtiee permits have been used. In reference to Mr. Sherman's charges of the practices of the custom. clerks in commission caes of receiving gratuities of attorneys, Mr. Ar; bur defends the pi active as inaugurated upon i he advice of a law otlicer of the government to save government revenues, and denies any fraudulent intent on the part of tho employers. The practice prevailed long before his incumbency. Mr. Arthur refers to Secretary Sherm,iu's charges of the diminution of customs receipts under his administration, and says he does not quite understand whether the .secrelary proposes to hold him responsible therefor, and savs it was due to several acts of congress, including that repealing the duty on tea and coffee. With reference to THE EXPtiNSKS OF HIS OFFICE, . Mr. Arthur says they were increased year by year, because they were improperly if not illegally charged to the expenses of collecting rev enue. A largo amount of the expenses lie had no control over, and claims that be cannot ho held exclusively responsible for any increase of expenses that occurred. He proves e reduction of the clerical force to the extreme limit, and ho has been informed that the force, since his superinteiideiicy, has been increased. In ferring to tho special report of Messrs. Meredith and others concerning Heimty Collector .Lydecker, he says tho charges are based on occurrences which took place ten years ago and shown to be w bully unfounded. He says that Meredith and oihers went to New York avowedly with the determination to make charges against the New York custom--house, ami especially against Lydecker, but could lind nothing, and were compelled to revive stale charges refuted more ttiau ten years ago. The letter of Mr. Cornell denies any allegations of neglect of duty during his service as naval ofli er, and claims that the determination to suspend him undoubtedly bad its origin in his refusal to surrender his perioual and political rights. GENERAL JAMKS SlIUXDs. The Hero of Two Wars und the Serin tor from lltree Sintes lteeeivcs the Coujrratulatlons ot Hosts ol I'rleiids. Special Despatch to Tho Boston (ilobe.1 Washington, I).

Keall v, 1 think if I have desired anything, it is to be placed on tho retired list; and such a recognition of my services would be much more satisfactory tu mo lhau the highest political honors which could be bestowed." lie says of his election to the senate that it is, of course, a great honor, und he appreciates it, but that it was entirely unexpected and unsolicited. He spoke in high terms of his friend. Senator Armstrong, whom be succeeds, and says if he bad been a member of the legislature he should have voted for him. Li theh. A SUIT AGAINST GEXEKAL. IlCn.Eli.

THE SMALL-POX IN CANADA. Its It a v aces Anions the French-Cunadims Inexcusable Apathy of the Authorities. Special Despatch to The lio-tou Globe.l Montreal, Canada, January 27. Smallpox of a very bad type i prevalent in the villages of Longueuil aud Laprarie. At the former place it is supposed to have originated in a French-Canadian family, and through want of proper precautions in the matter of isolation and vaccination the disease is spreading to an alarming extent. In a family named Goyette several children have died, while iu other families adults have succumbed to the dreaded disease. The authorities have shown considerable apathy iu the matter, but are becoming aroused to the true state of affairs, and are alarmed at the manner in which the disease is spreading. Among Erench-Canadian families, where the disease is most prevalent, the people are reported to be in very destitute circumstances, and are opposed to having their children, who are suffering from the disease, removed from among them. The result is that bakers, butchers and grocers visit the houses where the disease exists, totally negligent of the barm they may be doing by spreading this loathsome disease. At Laprarie several young men have died. THE MEXICAN EXHIBITION. It is Opened with Appropriate Ceremonies A Beautiful ;i t to Prestdt-nt Oiaz.

Not Much About the Ciphergrams, But Sweet Samples of Republican Strategy. Political Bargains with Prominent Hoosiers. Several Witnesses Unwillingly Unveil the Troublesome Trath. Special Desontch to The Boston GlobM Washington. D. C, January 27. The de-xeloumeuts before the Potter committee today were the most important of the session. It was brought out that despatches had passed between Tyner, then pc3tmaster-general, and now first assistant, who was Morton's chief henchman, and Foster, minister to Mexico. Foster proposed to contribute a certain sum of money to the Kepublican campaign fund in Indiana if Tyner would appoint a certain man named to a certain office. The proposition was accepted, the appointment made, and the money deposited in an Indianapolis bank to the order of the Republican executive committee. It also appeared that Tyner became alarmed, and in an order from President Orton withdrew certain other despatches he had sent, and hich he did not want published. The report of the entire proceedings of the committee, which, were of unusual interest throughout the entire day, will be found below. POTTER'S PROGRESS. What a Day Developed An Unusually Interesting Session Sui pies of Modern Civil Service Reform, as Practised by the Party of "Hibo Moral Ideas" W. E. Chandler to be Examined Today. Washington, D. C, .lanuary 27. The Potter commKtee commenced its investigation of the ciphers ihis morning. The first witness examined was Mr. Carey, the general manager and attorney of the Western Union Telegraph Company in New V'ork. He stated that in January, 1877, he was directed to bring all despatt hts relating to the political campaign to WashiugtoD. These despatches were picked out by experts arid brought to Washington by witness in a trunk, and hy him turned over to Mr. Whitney, manager of the telegraph company in this city. 'J he latter genilenian delivered the despatches to the joint coiumitiee of congress. Mr. Grant, another employe in the New York office of the Western Uniou telegraph Company, was next examined. Witness came on with Cirey, the attorney of the company, with the despatches, and saw them delivered to Wnituey. The witness paid the cipher despatches between New York and tU-soutu were some 300 in numher. and that about au equal number were sent by both political parties. Witness stated that uhile the numoerof cipher telegrams were anoiit evenly divided between the two parties, as regards those sent to Florida, he thought the ltepuuncan ciphers were in the majority. Mr. Wlutuey. manager of the Western Union Telegraph, iu this cuy, testilied that he received the truuk eontainine the depat.-hes from arey in 1877, and delivered those called hy the different suhpjeuas to ihe proper committees. He received ail the despatches back that be delivered to the Morrison committee. The remainiua despatches nt called tor in the subpoenas were replaced in the truuk and locked up. This trunk was delivered to the senate committee on privileges and elections, tie received the trunk hack aud forwarded it to New York. At this point he was asked by Mr. Ueed whether Mr. Morrison rilied the truuk, and the rest ot ihe Kepublican inttubeia uuid ihat there was no cause tor inquiry, as none on that side ot the table believed mat Mr. Morruon look them. As ili Baygestioj of Vjenerai Butler, Professor Edtvard J. lloldeu of tho naval observatory, the expert who is to decipher the telegrams, was sworn to tail hf any perform that serviee. A letter from Dr. Green, declaring that he bad no peisonal knowledge ot the ciphers, but expressing his willingness to appear, was taen read; alter which his sou, DR. J. O. GREEX, WAS SWORN. He testified he was present when the trunk was hrst packed, when it was sent to Washingto , and alao saw it when it returned, aud superintended the burning of ihe despaicLes in New York. As far as he kuew the contents of the trunk were the same as when sent, and uoihing had been disturbed. The key was kept in his father's desk; if the runk h'ld heeu tampered with he knew noth-ing of it. The ciphers were burnt ou his susires-tion, and not particularly because of a desire to keep any one from them. Witness stated that his lather is president of the Western L niou Telegraph Coa.pany; its former president died April 21. 1878, aud the despatches were burned after his aeatb ; he thought Mr Orton took au aciivepart in tne campaign that year, a d was a supporter of .Mr. Haves; Mr. urton's letter ordering these despatches was destroyed; there "was some telegraphic communication between Abstain Postmas er General Truer and .John W. Fosier; it related to the sale of a political ouice in connection with this election; no price was named; had no way of ascertaining the buyer or the seller, but inferred it, was Mr. Tyner,who,being iu a goverument ollice, had patronage to dispense. Thought it was au nppoiutiuent. With reference to Tbe expenditure of money lor eleciion purposes, tho transaction related to (he October elections. The collection of despatches was ordered beiore the presidential election. 'Ihoi-e not embraced in the subpoena were returned or destroyed, roster's despatches were returned to him at Indianapolis. Tbe witness had the impression that the funds were to be paid to the credit ot the REPUBLICAN CAMPAIGN COMMITTEE OF INDIANA. There was nothing to indicate whether il was a large or a small post office that was to be given in return, or whether it was a post office at all. Leonard Whitney was recalled by General Butler. Ihe witness did de.iver certain messages to Tyner. The oruer allowing the withdrawal of the despatches caiiw from Presi lent Orton. They were despatches which passed through the office here, and were taken from the ollice files. President Oriou was here during the mouth of December, 187ij, attyr congress convened and prior to Christmas. Witness had a distinct recollection of returning ten or a dozen despatches to Mr. lyner. J. L. tvani, member oi eonaress from Indiana, was tho uext witness. He testnied unit he knaw Bullock, who nave him a package lied up in a newspaper, when he started f;r Coiogue, saying it contained papers which uad been about ihe commi'teH room and which in in he be ueeaed gome day, tnd which he tiSuilock ;. luilit be h. ld responsible tor, aud uske i toe witneas to k-eD the p .ck-aj;e tor him. vv intend aiterwards ave the package, to Assistant I'ostmas er-Generai Brady, not knowing what it contained. He asked Brady i! he had a g' od piace to keep them, at the same uruj leiliug him what Bullock said, and left them at the posi odice department.

An Interesting: Story of Elizabeth Curtis' Art ventures Her Trial oa a Charge of Polygamy. Special Despatch to The Boston Globe.! Pittsfield, Mass., January 27. The superior court this afternoon took up the case of Elizabeth Curtis, charged with polygamy. The defence was that her marriage with Perry-Curtis, who instigated the prosecution, was illegal or not valid. She married Curtis in Cnaan, N. Y., in 18G8. and lived with him nine years, having one child which he keeps. In 1877 she left him, came into this county and married Ephraim Tubbs of Windsor. Elizabeth gave her version of the Curtis wedding thus: One day in 1868 Curtis came to our house in the morning with a quart of whiskey, and we all drank from it, she taking four or five hot "slings." The next morning when she awoke she found Curtis in her bed and was told they were married. She declared she had no recollection of the wedding ceremony, though it was shown that the marriage was performed by a local minister; had never seen the certificate, and prior to the wedding day bad never seen Curtis, nor had he ever seen her. Her father testified that she was insane from liquor when married, and her mother swore that she was not in a reasonable frame of mind when she was wedded. Lawyer W'olcott ably pleaded that such a marriage was not valid, but the court instructed the jury that, though she might not have understood it when the wedding was performed, the fact that she afterward, for nine years, lived with Curtis as his wife, was enough to ratify the ceremony and make her his wile. The jury is still out. GOTHAM GOSSIP. A I-CElslative Petition to Con stress A Newspaper Libel Suit Various Items. CspeciHi Ueapatcn to Tbe Boston Ulobe.t New York, January 27. A special to the Brooklyn Union-Argus from Albany says: "A petition is in circulation which will be signed by the majority of the Republican members of the senate aud assembly, requesting the United States senate to confirm General Merritt as collector of the port of New York, General Graham as survevor, and Colonel Burt as naval officer. This is looked upon as a notice lo Senator Conkling that the Republicans of this state, and especially those who elected him senator, desire that he shall cease his opposition to tbe administration." Judge Pratt of tbe supreme court today called the case of William 1). Hughes vs. the New York Evening P'-xpress Company. The action is for $20,000 damages for an alleeed libel. Hughes has similar suits against nearly all the New York journals, claiming trom $10,000 to S50.000 from each, as they published articles not unlike that whicb appeared in the Express. In opening his address, his counsel said it was not true that the office of his client was a resort of thieves. A number of witnesses were examined by the counsel for Hughes, who testilied to the character of Hughes. Immense fields of ice from the uprer Hudson covered the surface of the North river from shore to shore this morning, materially interfering with ferry traffic. It is reported that a gorge exists opposite Port Schuyler, which has partially sealed the river to sloops and schooners, and acts as a formidable barrier to large steamers. But little ice is floating in tbe East river. It is said that the anthracite coal market here is bare, and that a rise in prices at the Lackawanna saie this week of forty or fifty cents per ton is probable. The steamer Britannic, from Liverpool, which arrived at her wharf, this afternoon, experienced strong westerly gaits during her entire passage across the Atlantic. She passed an Inman'steamer, yesterday, bound west, with rudder disabled. This is supposed to be the City of Montreal, which is announced to sail hence next Thursday. An order for book-binding machines was received in this city, Saturday, to go to Persia. The order came through an American missionary, and is the first ever received for such goods in this country Manchester Items. Manchester. N. H., January 27. On Saturday evening Captain Joseph II.

The Murderer Subsequently Meets the Fate of His Victims. CSpecial Despatch to The B-wton Globe 1 Bfxfast, Me., January 27. One of the mngt horrible tragedies that ever occurred in this state was perpetrated in the little village of Montville, some fifteen miies from this city, last Saturday evening ; not so brutal, however, as some have 'been, for the bloody work was the result of an insane man's frntik. The lunatic's name is Row ell, and his victims comprise three members of oue family, by name McParland. The husband. John McParland, was a staid ai.d respectable farmer, much esteemed in the community. His brains and those of his granddaughter were beaten out with a club, while Mrs. McFarland met tbe slightly less terrible fate of being killed by a bullet. The fiend, proceeding in his murderous career, next attacked a neighbor, who instantly shot and killed him. GONE TO THE SUMMER-LAND. Mrs. Mary Hardy's Second Husband Dies in North Carolina Hia Financial, Matrimonial and Bpiritualistic Experiences. Ezra G. Perkins of Concord square, Boston, but formerly of Hy da Park, aied at KattreU's, X. C. yesterday morning, after a short iilness, resulting from lung, and it may be brain, disease. The body, accompanied by his widow, the third wife, will arrive today, and will be inferred at Forest Hills cemetery, between the bodies of his first and second wives. The deceased secured a remarkable prominence in Spiritualistic circ es. He was born in Jackson. N. H., and ws fifty-three years old. During his early youth and after-'ite hewas engaged iu railroad work, at hrst iu New Hampshire. His father was killed on the Manchester and New Hampgf. re railroad. Coming to Bo-ton in 18o5, he was roaa-mnster ou tbe Boston and Providence railroad, having charge of that seenou of the road between Sharon and Boston. In 1859 he but It a portion of a road tor the Old Colony, aud in 18i0 secured a contract to till lauds and other work on ihe Boston ana Providence railroad, lie, iu company with Mui.sou, tilled the Back buy territory, having a lnrge tract of land at Canton where he secured his materia!. He ulo did a part ot the work on the Hoosho tunnel, fie lived at Hyde Park wnb his hrst wife and only child a daughter. Klia and served on the board of scle --t ineu of ihat town force year, it w s alter tue de..Ui ol his hrst wile that be be nine interested in Spir.tualism. She died at Hyde Park, January 20 1875. Receiving a "communication ' from her at bis hrst se .nces, he attended otheis, until he became acquainted with .Mrs. John Hardy, who was tiving test circles aud Showing Spirit ilxnds at Concord Scj'iare. He consulted her every day. She always hid messages from his wife. She visited his Hyde Park home, aud he became infatuated with her. Jlra. Hardy informed him that his wile desired that he should marry her so ps to have constant communica ion with her. The fact that .Mr. Johu Hardy lived with hi? wite was no obstacle in the way of the consummation ot Ins wile s desires, for upon John's receiving a consideration, perhaps iOUO, Mrs. Hardy was permuted (o obtain a wes'eru divorce, and on the loth of May, 1877, she was united in marriage to Mr. I'er-kms hy the Lev. -Ur. Van KiecK. "rec'or of the Fpiscopal church at Hyde Park, who also gained no.oriety by oniciating at ihe Lord-Hicks marriage at New York. Matters did not programs so smoothly with Mr. Perkius and his daughter Klia after his second marriaue. According to the w.U of his first wiie, who died possessed of all the property, El;a was to have the life-use of a set of diamond jewelry, a lare portion of the income of the es'ate. aud if Mr Perkins were to marry a second tune, the proper, v was to revert to the daughter. I pon his second marriage the daughter endeavored to procure the jewelry and o'Lei portions of tne estate throu.'h the probate court, and this matter was pending when ou Janu iry 14. 1878. Mrs. Hardy-Perkins died from consumption, inductd by a severe told she had taken while attending a Mt.ody and Saukey meeting at the iabernac: . Mrs. Hardy-Perkins had made a will in the presence of her second husband, bJ-qneating to him the house in Concord square, a farm iu New Hampshire, upon which Mrs. Hardy's parents resided, and about SoOOi) iu person .1 property. Shoitlv after her death Mr. 'Perkins presenied the will for probate, and was isiouished to lind a second will of his wite, made subsequently to tne one Mr. Perk us had. in win h uearly' all of the property was bequeathed to a sister and parents of ,.rs. Hurdy-Perkins. A lengthy hearing took place over which of the wills should be a lowed, when suddenly John llnrdr Arpeared Upon !' Scene by petitioning that both wilts be set aside, and that he be allowed charge of the estate as the husband of Mrs. Hardy-Perkins. His claim was disallowed, j he second will was allowed, and Mr. Perkius appointed executor of (he estate, but, of course, had no other cluim. Ibis decision by ouage McKim was rendered on July . 1878, and ou the afternoou of that date Mr. Perkins was united for a third time iu wedlock, this time to Miss Mav Carlton of Lowell, by rhe Kec i t. A. A. Miner at Concord square, ihis 'auv was a medium, and had become tAquainted with Mr. Perkins a short time previous. She had given him many messages from the spirit laud; and it is said that one of tnem was a command from Mrs. nardy-Perkins that he should marry Miss Carlton. At all events she sat beside him during the hearing at the court, and looking through a horoscope gave him po nr.s from above the clouds. Mr. Perkins' health has failed for i be past six months. About two months ago. accompanied by his wife, he went to Non b Carolina, to endeavor to regain his health. As a miter of law. now that be is de id, Hie estate ot toe lirso wile reverts to the daughter; that ot the second wile to her relatives, and the widow has her right to a third of his estate, as at present: but it is thought that the latter will not be of great value, though there is a tract of land at Canton, aud perhaps some other property. His brother resides at Hyde Park. As a man, Mr. Perkins was na xceptiouable. and had many fiiends. who will regret the. announcement of Lis tieaih. He exposed the famous west end Spiritualistic frauds. THE L.OCAL. K:COItD OF A DAY.
