Mr. Duwes, (rep.) of Jlns., from the
CoinmitU'u of Iuvc-tigiuiim on Govern
inent Contracts, in resuming hi.s reuiarJf.'s
commctic d on Friday lust, said S'f. I
hiivti titt failed to nolico, and 1 believe
tliu committee of which I am a mpinber,
have not failed to notice , in comm iii with
the whole country, that for tome account
able via on tlie charges upon the
national treasury at this time of
war, have been such as li teach
nearly tho bottom of the public ehe-t.
During our investigation staitling facts
have como before the notice, of this co'ii -
uiittce, and to tho notice of the whole
country, touching the modo and manner
of the expenditure of the public money.
Some of theso items I propo-e to call pub
h'c attentieii io, and thun to ask gentlemen
the plain question, when they propose to
ur-.l tl,io ipic.-tiOii, if r.i ail, and if so, how,
when and whero '. The very first contract
entered into by thi-s governmcn,, after the
trooys hid left their homes to come ln-re,
in April last, to defend the Capitol, by
which they weio to be fed, was a contract
entered into lor cattle. It was not made
with n man whoso bu-iuts-. it wa to sup
p'y cattlo to tho maifci-t, i et with a man
who knew the price of beef in the market-,
of the country, but was entered 'into by
the government here with a man we. I
kit 'Wn in t1 is, ami the other branch of
Congress, for the lust ten years, as uu old
political stipendiary one of thu class of
, men who, in times past, made their money

eates of iiiembcra for books ut a discount
and then charged the full amount. 'J his udveitiseuieut, uot made with the kuowl

tho first fruits of one of those contracts.
A regiment of cavalry lately reached Lou -

female. On further search a quantify of
miscellaneous proporty, including some
valuable jewelry, and a few pounds iu
money was missing. But no trace of do
mestic could bo found. Police detectives
were iminediatly sent for,and ou examina
tion of tho premises circumstances came to
light which tended to cast suspicion on tho
scrvau', which wan confirmed on discover
ing that tho bloody pokor was an artifice,
and that tho hair had been glued on.
They next ascertained that a cab, contain
ing a gentlemen with a good sized box,had
left the house that evening for tho Eastern
Counties railway station, and at tho sta
tion that ho had taken a ticket and pro
ceeded for Brentwood. The officers fol
lowed on to Brentwood next day, nothing
doubting that tho gentleman and the gcod
sized boz were tho servant in dis-niiso and
tho stolen property. At Brentwood they
earned that a gentlemen and a bos' had
paired tho night at the White 11 art, but
had l..ft that morning by tho down tiaiu.
Detective Sheen fol'owed the other detec
tive returning to London. Ho traced the
gentleman and box until it reached Yar

ance o" Sergeant Berry, and both spent
the whole of tho day in fruitless inquirers.
Next day, however, they ascertained that
a gentlemen and a box had takcu lodgings
with an old lady in Bow, 130, and ou
proceeding there were told that a young
gentleman answering the description given
with a box.had lived with her since Friday
but h e was then out taking a walk on the

might possibly bo one of her own sex, tho

The Domestic Tyrant It is 0 mo
a disgusting sight to see, as we sometimes
, do, tho wife and children of a family kept
' in constant terror of tho selfish bashaw afc
the head of the houso, and ever on tho
! watch to yield in every petty manner to,
i his whims and fancies. Sometimes, whero
, ho is a hard-wrought ami anxio.ui man,
' whoso hard work cams his children's
I bread, and whose life is tho solo stay, it is
needful that ho should bo deferred, to ia
' many things, lest the overtasked brain,
' and the over-strained ucrrom systerr,
j should break down or grow unequal to tho
I task. But I am not thinking of such casei.
I I mean caso3 iu which the head of the
family is great, fat, bullying, selfidh
scoundrel, who devours sulloiilv the cnown,
dishes at diuner, and walks into all the
fruit and dessert, while his wifo looks or;
in silence, and tho awo-strioken ohildroc
dare not hint that they would liko a littlo
o.f what the brutal hound is devouring. I
moan cases in which tho contemptible dog
is extremely well dressed, vehils his wifo
and children's nttirc is thin and bare, in
which ho liberally tosses about his money
in the billiard-room, and goes off in ai
tumn for a lour on tho continent by him
self, leaving them to the jobless routine of.
their unvaiied life. It is sad to see tho
sudden hush that falls upon tho littlo things
when he enters tho house; how their sports
; aro cut snort, and they try to Btcal away
, from tho room. Would that I were tho
