On Wednesday Mr. Carpenter occupied the
cutiro session of tho Senate in an effort to
niako it appear that his client was simply a
victim of political perf-ceution. In other
words, that when a Cabinet officer is caught
in corruption and bribery, and lending -his
high office to avarice, and brought to tiial.to
answer to. the country, this, is isjlitieal perser
cutinu. There was n time when tho Senate
of tho United State would Bcarooly have lis

anxious to co if they have .suflicicut liackbojio

Grist from IhTVutrago Mill. '
A correspondent of the New York World,
writes from Memphis. Tennessee, under date
of July Vi, says, two days ago n warrant wa
issued for the arrest of "Frances Thompson,"
foremerly.n witness before a congressional in
investigating committee and more lately the
most infamous procuress iu Memphis, Dr.
J. II. Nuttall, u well-known Memphis phy
sician, having been iu some wiiy advised
that there was suspicion as to the ti ue sex
of this vile creature, she was summoned be
fore tho recorder who ordered an investiga
tion by four of the most prominent physi
iu ihe city. These physicians fame into
court and testified that this pseudo. woman,
is really a imlii and iu iu no respect it woman.
Tlio court then imposed a fine upon ,-l-'rau-ces
Thompson," in default nf which tho (lie)
was taken with the chain-gang to tlie city
rockpile, after .having been stripped of fe
male attire and endued in the garb appropri
attto her (his) sox. Such is tho character
of the witness on whose testimony and that
of a negro named Lucy Smith, who lodged
nnd slept iu the same bed with "Frances
Thompson," Messrs. Washburn and Hroom
all, Republican members of a congressional
investigating committee to inquire into cer
tain alleged riotous proceedings, in tho city
of Memphis, iu tho year 1S0U, made report
that "the crowning nets of atrocity and dia
bolism committed were the ravishing of five
colored women." Tho rape of "Frances
Thompson," Messrs. Washburn nud Hroom
all go on to say, "is one to which reference
is here made." After starting, nccording to
the testimony of "Frances Thompson," that
seven men, who had policemen's stars on
their breasts and who were "all Irishmen,"
had on a certain night entered the house of
said "Frances Thompson," Messrs. Wash
bum nnd Iiroomall declare that "tho woman,
Frances Thompson, wns then violated by
four of the men, and so badly beaten and
bruised that she lay in bed for three dnys."
Tho testimony of "Frances Thompson," on
which Messrs. Washburn nnd Iiroomall
base their statements may be found on pa
ges HIG and 11)7 of their report. Thus the
evideuce of this perjured, negro, scoundrel,
dressed in woman's clothing, was mndo thu
thread of n horrible narrative, authenticated
by tho signatures of two leading Republican
members of Congress, printed ul the govern
ment expense and sent out by tons thrr ugh
the mniU under tho then existing franking
privilege, The vile fabrication served, its
purpose. Hut tho people against, whose
good name itnvns jlirected have lived down
the. base calumny and it is now their turn
to laugh. Probably there nre.two men why
by this fimo art) fuly impressed wilh the
truth pf the ndago that "ho laughs best who
laughs last," and those two are Eliiu H.
Washburn, Minister to France, and tho
Hon. John M. Urooiuall, of Delaware coun
ty, Pennsylvania. Republican luembers-of
Congress and Republican newspapers nt
present engaged lu grinding out u uew crist
from the "outrage mill" may profit by their
experience." VolttiiUle Slandared.

HoKie hnd Sonato linvo'jjecif.agreed to dur-
ing tlio wepk, ami five Mill; remain to be
compromised. Four of tlieso'aro before con
fercuco comiulttees nnd tlio oilier, the river
and harbor bill, Is yet being discussed by
the Senate. It was understood on Friday
tliatapartl.il agreement upon tho toughest
niul most hopeless one of tho.lot tho legis
lative, executive and judlcinl tins been" partially-
compromised, and it is confidently ex
pected that it may to-day be entirely disposed
of, rendering tlin'e"renValn'fng comparatively
easy of adjustment. Tho Senalo committee
to which wa referred tlio river and haibor
bill mndo a litlio cheap reputation by cut
ting nil ninny or tho appropriations grnnlid
by (lie House; but if the Housn committee
and the House were obnoxious to thechnrgi!
of jobbery and log-rolling in icportlng nnd
passing Mich a bill, tlie Senate has inclined
a greater weight of odium In restoring nil
the jobs eliminated by Its committee, nnd
adding other of its own. One substitute
and many nniendmcnls hnvo been inconti
nently voted down in that, body, nml tho
mil still remain, a monument ot folly nml
extravagance. There appears to bo 11 grow

The Ilclknap ense hnngs fire on account
of tho Indisposition of 0110 of tho managers
nnu 01 uarpenter or tho defense. Tlio testi
mony of Evans, wnlch was deemed of so
much consequence that tho trial was adioui li
ed to await his coiulng,did nnt really change
tbe(bcarings of thocaso In any particular.
It only wont to confirm Marsh, nnd might
liavo been dispensed witli without detriment
to Justice. Tho evidence is all in and it was
voted to rcstmio tho consideration of the case
on Wednesday. Mr. Illnir lias already made
a portion of his opening argument, and it
does not seem that it will occupy moro than
a very few days more, nlthough it if general
ly supposed that tho defendant's counsel will
make elaborate nnd protrncted pleas. What
those benntors who volcd against their juris
diction are going to do when n final vote is
reached is .1 conundrum npt easy to solve.
Tho lolief is'unhisitntincly expressed in
Democratic circles that'tho evidence against
Kobeson, mountains high, warrants his im
peachment, and it wns supposed thnt imme
diate steps in that direction would hnvo beeu
tnken. Hut prompted by judicial fairness,
the testimony ns taken may he submitted to
tho judiciary committee for tho opinion of
tho eminent lawyers partly composing it ns
to that ollicial's amenability to that method
or punishment Tor violation of law. Two
members of the Cabinet on trial nt the same
time would bo a refreshing spectacle to the
members of the party of "moral ideas."
The matter of making silver a legal tender
is being warmly discussed here nt the capi
tal anil the disposition to restore it to its old
placo is wide-spread.
The House committee on mines and min
ing has reported .1 bill providing for the is
sue nf coin notes for $50 nud tho multiples
thereof up to $10,000, to be redeemed by the
vnrious'mints and assay offices by the silver
and gold bullion on deposit there. Section
4 of tlie act provides "Thnt the coin notes
issued under the provisions of thin net shall
bo a legal tender foi all debts of the United
States, public and private, not specified to
be paid iu coin." Tho prospects for a re
peal of tho resumption net are brightening
with the discussion it provokes. Ono of tho
members of the committee on bnnking,lrere
tororo opposed to its repeal, is now counted
among those in favor of tlio measure. Should
this prove truo it is believed the currency
reformers have suflicieut strength in the
committee to report a bill fcr its repeal. This
will put the party representative, in Con
gress in harmony with the declarations ot
the St. Louis ronveiilion ami compromise
the only real ilill'ercnce.s between members of
tin- party iu dill'ereiit sections of the coun
