THE OM AltNOl.H HOUSE AT NEW
New Haven Despatch In the Boston Globe.
An interesting discovery has been
mado by Thomas Ailing nt tho old
Benedict Arnold house in Water street.
In tnkiug out u portion ot tho garret
lioor Jin lound a vault which is taippos-.
ed to havo boon used by Arnold dur
ing tho wur of tho revolution ns n hid
ing placo for suspects or lugitives
whom ho wished to befriend. Tho
lifting of sorao of tho garret floor
planking revealed the pocket or vault
underneath. It is about four and one-
half feet deep and six feet square, nnd
is plastered on tho aides. Two or more
persons could remain in concealment
thoro without being crowded.
Tho vault is located by tho side ot
tho large old-lashionod chimney. Un

ly stood a largo bookcase, and it is
supposed that through this cnlrnnco
was obtained to tho hiding place, in
dido the vault aro plain evidences of a
former staircaso extending to a small
enclosed space on another side of tho
$180,100,477.01. Mr. Allison stated
that tho total amount for this year at
5rJii,2Ul,US7.13. Tho discrepancy be
tween Mr. Randall's total and that of
Mr. Allison is accounted for by tho
fact that Mr. Allison assumed a furth
er appropriation for tho narv to cover
tho last six mon'.hs of tho current fiscal
year. Adding this amount, which is
nearly $8,000,000, and tho S0G.O0O,
000 unexpended balances of former ap
printions for pensions reappropriated
brings tho grand total appropriated
for tho fiscal year already entered upon
to $250,201,087 as stated by Mr. Alli
and tho courage of men who lovo their country
accepted the verdict of tho fraud and were grand
er to-day In their retirement than the men who
profited by the fraud. Tho democratic party
would bo In power to-day but for republican gold
and notes, notes fresh and uncut from Washington
the money ot the Star routes attesting to the ve
nality ot the republican party. Tho speaker
went on to denounce tho administra
tion ot publJo affairs, glanced over the work of the
Springer committee, pictured tho reforms which
would follow the re-entry ot tho democracy to pow
er and In concluding urged that when the commit
tee on platform reported they have no doubtful
oracle, speaking with doublo tongue upon the
great ls3ucs ot the day, but such a platform that
tno wayranng man, tuougn a 1001, nugnircaa aDa
a sort of a closet. Whether Arnold
used the vault for secreting Tories or
tho patriots, or built It to afford n 10
treat for himself, uo ono knows. That
it should have remained undiscovered
until Mr. Ailing accidentally found it
shows that it was well designed for the
purpose which led to its construction

HIS 1101.1) AND COMMENDABLE SENTIMENT
CONFLICTS WITH FACTS.
From tho New York Sun.
Our esteemed contemporary, tho
JSeening l'ost, in a series of articles
in which candor and acuteness have
kent oven sten. brinirs out verv clearlv
tho tact that Air. Ulaino told nt (inter-
cut times two entirely different stories
about his connection with tho Little
ownership of tho Ltttlo Rook bonds
nnd if our recollection is right this very
statement was subsequently incorpora
ted at his own request into his sworn
testimony buforo tho invcsllgatlhgcom
mltttco ho had no renson to supposo
thnt his own letters to Mr. Wairen
J. Fisher, jr., would uver sec the light
ngain, or that tho memorandum ot Mr.
Fishers bookkeeper, air. Juullignn,
would ovor bo produced for the infor
mation of n committee of congress. Ho
theieforo took high ground. Tho ru
mor that ho whs tho owner of of $150,-
000 or more of theso bonds was absurd.
Ho had bought somo of tho bonds
not a very largo amount pnying mon
ey for them precisely as overy other
investor did, nnd at tho market price.
Had it como to this, he demanded, thnt
nu American citizen was to bo exclud
ed from n perfectly honorablo nnd open
business investment merely becnuso ho
happened to bo n representative in con
gress f Mr. Blaine's indignation wns
ns lofty ns tho sentiment which ho ad
vanced wns virtuous : "Whero conceal
niont is desirable avoidance is advisable."
Yet it w&s destined thnt within six
weeks Mr. Blaino should bo forced to
read in tho house a letter written and
signed by himself showing tho exact
sizo of tho "small amount" of his hold
ings in Littlo Rock nnd Fort Smith
bonds n small amount, ns ho said,
paid for in cash nt tho market price,
nnd magnified by absurd rumor to
something ovor $150,000. On Octo
ber I, 1871, ho wroto to Mr. l'ishcr:
1 have befn treated with positive cruelty In re
gard to tho bonds. I have your poslllvo written
contract to deliver mo 153,00O land bonds nnd Ms,-
500 nrst mortgago bonds, ot this whole amount
of bonds duo mo I havo received but .'o,oco land
grants, leaving JTS.OOO of thoso nnd JOJ.M) nrsl
mortgage ttlll due."
It nppcars that tho "absurd rumor"
ns to the amount wns nbout right. But
if Mr. Blaino hnd paid in cash for his
$lo7,000 of bonds, just liko overy oth
er investor, and nt tlio open market
price, how was it possible for Josiah
Caldwell nnd Warren Fisher, jr., to
defraud him of his rights? How did
it happen that tho Boston capitalists
wero in a position to trent tho innocent
nnd simple-minded legislator with
positivo cruelty 1"
1 ho nnswer is aflorded by tho mem
orandum in Mr. Blaine's handwriting
showing thnt ho did not pay n dollar
for his Jiittlo Kock bonds, but receiv
ed them as .1 gratuity or commission ;
and further light is allorded by Mr.
Blaino himself in 0110 of tho Mulligan
Mr Drak Mn. FisnEH : Your offer to admit
me ton participation In the new railroad enter
prise Is In every respect as generous as I could ex
pect or desire. I thank you very sincerely for It.
'I do not feel that I shall provo a deadhead In

In the warm summer weather mr.ny per
sons feel an Irresistible craving for some
thing sour and often gratily this deslro by
free Indulgence in pickles or vegetables
made acid with vinegar. This demand for
acids Indicates a deficiency In tbe acid bc-
cretlons of the stomach, and tho demand
for an artlllcial supply Is a natural one,
but vlnegnr Is not tho best substitute.
Lactic acidity is one of tho chief agents
that gives ncldlty to tho gastric juice of
the stomach in health. This Is the acid of
sour milk, and therefore one of tho best
summer diet drinks that we can use Is but
termilk. It satisfies the cravings for acids
by giving to the stomach a natural supply,
and at tho same time furnishes In Its
cheesy matter n good supply of wholcsorao
nutrition. A man will euduro fatigue in
hot weather better on buttermilk than on
any other diet drink he can use.
