Heavy Defaleatkin—Riumered Expedition
to Cutia-rEast River Bridge—Forger
Arrested—Union Pacific Railroad UV
[By Telegraph to the Pltteborgh eszette.l
NEW 'form, April 17, 1869.
Intense excitement was created at Pro
.duce Exchange this evening by the di&
covery of a defalcation amounting to
more than 5160,000. The defaulter is Mr.
Peck, of the firm of Packer, Peck &Ca,
owners of aniron elevator at the foot of
Degraw street, Brooklyn: Four of
five firms doing business on the Produie
Exchange placed in the hands of the
firm at different times, beginning with
last fall, produce amounting in the ag.
- gregatti to as fbilows: corn, 113,754 bush
ebs, oats, 70,454 bushels, and rye,
7,561 bushels. Thie, it 'is allege&
Peck disposed' of a market rates,
amounting to about 5160,000. Yes
terday Peck could not be found,
and an examination of the books re
vealed the fact of the defalcation. Al
though the Most diligent search has been
made, no trace of hie whereabouts can
be found. Report.says he hat sailed for
Europe; Mr. Packer, partner of the
defaulter, la lying sick at his residence
and much sympathy is felt for him by
those who have had dealings with the
firm. It is due to the Warehousing As
sociationto say that the firm of Packer,
Peck & Co. was not a member.. It is ru
mored .on 'Change that one or two of
'the firms who have suffered by the de
falcation will be obliged to suspend.
This is the heaviest defalcation- in pro
duce ever committed in this city.
Ccinsiderable excitement was caused
by the report that a strong expedition
was about to sail from New York, with
the tacit approval of the United States
authorities. This is ascertained to bent
least inaccurate in details: Numbers of
mail; it is true, are being drilled in vari
ous parts of• the city; arms are being
bought in large quantifies and storekin
convenient depots; but still the metropo
lis will not be the point of departure for
any, large expeditionary. force. For this

sand five hundred 'persons, thO greignr.
portion of them colored. He
calved with - enthusiasm and app
throughout- He said he had not smarts
insult any, one, or to injure any le'S
feeling& He had come dmplylovi
cafe the purity of Congress, uptin which
foul aspersions had been cast by Andrew
.Toluison, in his speeches- at Knoxville
and this place. He. showed that Con
gress had .never transcended the bc•tai.
daries Of the Constitution. In;passing
acts over the veto they had exercised 110'
power not granted by that instrument: He
accused Johnson ofhaving been the cause
of all the troubles InTenneesee; of having
stirred up bad feeling, nest by giving
Brown:low Instructions to call ..on. .the
United States for troops. He took: un
Johnson's statement , that he freed the
negroes Tennessee,and showed that
when 'Lincoln hull announced his inten
tion to proclaim freedom to the slaves,
Johnson went to Washington and '
veiled upcm the President to eaeept Ten
nessee, and he only declared them free
when they were so in fact.. He went
-through Johnson's Knoxville speech,
and showed how unreliable were- its
statement* of faots. He`would not cbarge
Andy with insanity, but he would say
he believed that if Johnson would retire
to his home stGreenville, the gnawing('
of his conscience would give him no
peace, and he.,wonld soon die. He ac
cused Johnson of having deceived every
party and everybodywho had ever heisted
him; as having been an inebriate and
profane man; said he exceeded- his au
thority undOr the Constitution impris
oning citizens of Nashville in the State ,
prison, and in assessing special taxies on
others, whilst MiUtary'Governer. John
son was prating about, the Constitution,
and yet he had declared in a public '
speech in Nashville "Show me a man
that talks about the Constitution, and I
will show you a traitor." He warned the
people in beware of Johnson. He was
on a dark mission; plotting to disturb
the peace and perhaps incite revolution.-
In conetualosi he urged the disfranchised
masses to cease making incendiary
speeches, to abstain from murder and as
sassination, and they would very speed
ily be given the right of the ballot. So
long as they indulged in acts of lawless
ness, and were prolifid of threats,
- they never would.get what they desired.
He said he intended be a breakwater
in the path of Johnson, and would ex- -
pose his\ dark and damning record to the
Yotiblic gaze. The speech was about
three and one-half hours in length. He
made no reference to the gubernatorial
canvass, but accused Johnson of plotting
in oonnection with the election of Su
