The Philadelphia Press of Iho 10th
says t Yesterday Treasurer Mackey
was pertniltod to be henrd in defence
of himsulf and tho Cumerons in the
column " of iho Tress."" To-day wo
make room for another documont
which has been put forth in behalf of
the Uarrisburg Ring. This is a com
munication signed by Messrs. Edwin
M. Lewis and W. L. Schaffer of this
oity, and purporting to give the re
sults of an examination of "the cash
account of the Treasury Department,"
and certain specified bonds of the
Sinking Fund Department. Such ex
amination, ' it appears, was mode in
compliance with a letter addrossed by
R. V. Mackey to E. M. Lewis, Esq.,
undor dute ot June 29, wherein he
wrolo : "On Monday lust a long com
munication appeared in the Press of
your city,muking very serious charges
against tho management of the Treas
ury of the Stato, and alleging, among
other things, that tbe securities be
longing to tho Sinking Fund of the
Slate wore being used for the benefit
of individuals, and that an examina
tion would provo thut thore was a
largo defioncy of tho publio funds."
Mr. Lewis was therefore asked, in
connection with three other bankers,
lo moot Mackey in Uarrisburg "to
examine tho affairs of Iho Treasury of
the Sinking Fund." We proposo now
to show, first, thut Mr. Mackey has
not only evaded the main points at is
sue, but falsely stalod the charges
mado by a correspondent of tho Press,
and, second, that the communication of
Mossrs. Lowio and Schaflor in nowise
weakens Iho case against the Ring,
but on the contrary sustains diroclly
and by implication somo of tho princi
pal chargos ngainst them. "
Ordinary thieves wilt always lie to
conceal thoir guilt. Extraordinary
official roc ueo and swindlers are
equally roady to dony thoir malversa
lions. , Indood, we havo noverfor one
moment expeoled Iho leading mom
ber of tho Uarrisburg cabal to come
forward and confess. But we did
suppose thoy wero too orafty lo mako
so weak and clumsy a defence.
But lo tho work. Tbe communica
tion in the Press referred to by Mack-
ey in the above note did not charge
"that the securities belonging to the
Sinking Fund of the Stato wore being
uoed for the benefit of individuals, and
that an examination would prove tbsl
there was a large deficiency of the
publio funds.", .No such statement
was mado. , It was charged, howevor,
in that communication, that the pub
lio money for which the Treasurer is
responsible is deposited in certain fa-
vorite banks, a large portion of it
being loa with certain banks at Uar
risburg, Miftlinburg, Northumberland,
Lewisburg, Lancaster, &o., which are
either owned in whole or in part by
some' of the Camerons, or controlled
by them j that these Cameron banks

Those wero lbs charge mad by
our Uarrisburg correspondent In that
particular communication, and most
of them ar abundantly confirmed by
Messrs. Lewi and Sobaffer's report
of their examination. They say tbsl
they fouod by the cash account that
"Mnckey was responsible July 0 for
$2,129,1 18.68, and that $2,063,159.74

Lewis and SchsfTer naturally have
nothing , to say about these little mat
tors. Do u III eos they found the cash'
account apparently square. They
could not question the bank report. .
They also certify to having exam
