Correspondence of the Franklin Reflositorr.
WaseiNATOT; CITY, May 7,_1864
Tile last week has been,one of great excite
ment in this communftry":caused chiefly by ru
..morii of misconduct among the 'officials and
lewdness of some of theinele and female clerks
of the Treasury, and of the movements of
Grant's army advertising upon Richmond.
Of the Treasury= matter, I have to say: All
the posted residents of Washington are aware
, that for a year past numerous stories have been
afloat of the unchasteness of our public men
bothln and out of Condess who have been
said to have recommended Women of immoral
ano disunion tendencies for positions in the dif
ferent departments of the government, and that
some"women. of chaste character have had im
p roperprOposals made to them by those through
whom they sought position. There is some
foundation for these statements, but not to the
extent to which they have been currently re
A squabble having arisen in Congress last
week respecting some matters in the Treasury,
same of thcr copperheads openly declared that
there were transactions transpiring there which
- it was indecent to detail in the presence of the
ladies in the galleries, .and a committee was
appointed to investigate the charges made
chiefly against S. - M. Clark. Pending this in
vestigation. Col: Baker,• the detective of the
War and Treasury Departments, elicited Some
statements, which he assumed amounted to,the
charge of attempt at abortion,- upon the person
of Mist Maggie A. Din'all,'against a'oung man
named Lewis (who was said to have seduced
her) and Miss Ella Jackson. Beth the young
women have ,beenl until recently, and the young
man formerly wad employed in the Treasury.
On Wednesday Miss Duvall, Who had been
confined to her residence for nearly two months,
died. Inimediately Col. Baker entered com
plaint against theiaforesaid parthis, Miss Jack
son was arrested,!butl.ewiti coulcimot be found,
and a post moricni examination of the body of
Miss Duvall was . ! ordered. , This examination
resulted in a verdict that she had died oful
monary consumption, and that there were no
indications of her having been ancients, or of
any attempt at abortion having been made
upon her. •
Miss Jackson is still held in custody, and
the investigation -has not yet been concluded.
This is indeed' a sadJcase, pandering as it does
to the baser passions of many, and sorely dis
tressing the better portion of those who appre
ciate its most deplorable features and shudder
at the thought of its effects upon the thousands
of unprotected females in this city, as well as
upon the smaller circle of those whose reputa
tion and feelings are directly assailed by it..
• The evidence seems to indicate that Leivis
and Miss Duvall were guilty of criminal inter
course, and it is said there is other evidence of
similar transactions. I have no doubt that
this is true. Indeed so generally is this matter
credited, that many women who should un
doubtedly be above reproach, find it difficult to
obtain social. recognition or tolerance in some
: circles, and I am free to say that I think
ho one who has any regard for a young female
friend should allow her to come to this city to
~reside or seek employment in any of the de
partments, unprotected. Of those already here.
and especially of those old enough elsewhere
to occupy an independent social position, I
• have to say; in the language of one of the city
papers; " it is the duty of the public to refrain
. from stigmatizing any against whom no proof is
• adduced . of complicity wifh this deplorable af
fair, or any similar, with suspicions of impropri
ety of conduct. And all, both male and female,
who are conscious of entire personal freedom
from any grounds of such suspicion' should feel
steeled against the shafts of slanderous words or
thoughts by the armor of their own rectitude."
The publicity-which was given to the Duvall
• affair I regard as premature, unnecessary,
and wholly unjustifiable. But it is entirely in
accordance with the general conduct of this de
tective Baker.. I hope that he will pie as
ready, and more - Successful than he has been'
(notwithstanding the terrible expose) in this
case in ferretting out the guilt of parties more
• prominent, and whose offences are more heni
. oxis than those of the parties implicated in this
affair of criminal passion.
Young Lewis, who is not to be found, is said
to have been residing for some time in Arkan
sas, and "was formerly an racer, brave and
faithful, ins Pennsylvania regiment. Should
there, be no. further evidence of seduction, or
attempt at abortion than has - been thus fur ad
duced, he will not,be punished legally, if found,
But the sad fruits of his criminal indulgence of
' passion Will haunt-him through - life and embit
ter the closing years of his father's most hon
orable and eminently useful life. s. c.

Correspondence of the Franklin, Repository.
- • WASHINGTON, May 13, 1864.
The week about to close has been one of the
most exciting that I' have ever experienced,
and in listening for further news from the front,
answering telegrams, helping.the wounded, and
hunting after the fate of friends, we were not
idle, nor will we be for some time to come.—
Already 10,000 men from the battle field have
been brouiit to our Hospitals and more than
that number still remain beyond. - Of the first
few thousand that arrived, at least one-half
were "skedadlers," embracing officers and men,
who represent themselves as wounded, but upon
:examination are found to be perfectly sound,
and who are . only trying to get away from the
:smell of gunpowder. Already over 1500 of
these have been picked up bythe Provost Guard
to be forwarded to their regiments, and the Bur-
Weons are initking an elimination throughout
the IlospiOs toy the balance. Oa one boat
yesterday forty were arrested, and on another
aane hundred ar.d . .thi4pgjx, It is an • tainting

of detectives and examining officers are 4ation.
ed and see thein overtani..dad ventilate -the
decePtinnspracticed by these weak-kneed "like
&Akre." . A private in a New York'regrinent
amputated the left leg of his pants an ban
daged his ankle, yet while hobbling along the
wharf he was "spotted" and invited to show
hisi wound. On the removal of the bandage
he had not even a scratch. To-day a Captain
in full uniform was picked up with his armban
daged up, and after the removal of an enormous
amount of dirty linens from the armn of a single
mark' of a wound could be found. Another
regular army officer had a slight scratch on his
leg - as if done 'perhaps by A briar. Upon his or
"der he was furnished with an ambulance to coa
-1 vey him to the Aquia Creek landing. While
on liis way. the ambulance was fired into by a
party of guerrillas and the officer received a
seriou woundin. his neck:
It his been very amusing to go rounnown
and see old men and young men with canes and
umbrellas making maps of Lee's position and
Grant's movements in the dust, with which the
pavements and streets of this city usually abound.
Before the late rain these lines could be found
before every doggery and on every 'corner from
one end of the' city to the other.
The secesh, as a general thing, are very
gloomy and despondent. I accidentally heard
one of oar large fashionable jewelers tell
another , prominent dry goods man,t hat he should
only wait a day or two, and- he would see the
tables turned. You can tell a secesh now as
far as you ean'See him by the way'he stands and
reads-the bulletin hoards: •
A rebel Lieutenant happened to be in Fred:
erieksburg on leave of absence at the time our
first wounded arrived there, and thinking of
doing something smart he rallied the citizens
and'captured several hundred of our wounded
and stragglers and did not discover the "error
of his ways" before he was overpowered by his
prisoners and hung by the neck to the nearest
- Grant's losses are being made up rapidly by
reinforcements. Lee's army, say the brave
fellows who have been borne hitherwith evident
marks of having combated them resolutely,
are getting "groggy,?' and it•is confidently be
lieved'iby these who have witnessed the last
two days fight, that the hour is close at hand,
when Lee will fail tto come to time'
- The reports of the past week, until yesterday,
were very much exaggerated, but now there is
no need for imaginary doscri tions—the fights
,Wednesday and Thu ha ing made
of history, w,prove the ld adage that
"truth is stranger than fiction." It is positive
ly certain that Leo can ne each'Richmond
by railroad,, , without leaving his army to the
tender mercies of Grant, and that determined
executioner of rebels is in no mood to temper
justice with much mercy. The black troops of
Burnside's command have seized an early bp
pprtunity to retaliate for the'slaught4r of their
brethren at Fort Pillow. In the fiat of Tues

number for such retribution, without taking any

a voice which speaks to us of those who once
breathed those melodies—of what they now are,

kAN ANECDOTE OF GEN. GRANT.—Itis said
at when Gen. Grant was going down from
Wdellington to the front one clay last. week, the,
train having attached to it the - special car stop
ped at Brandy Station. Some soldiers who
were waiting to go down asked if they could get
into the car., "No," was the answer of an offi
cer; "this is Gen. Grant's special car." Gen.
Grant, who was sitting by the window, prompt
ly thrust out his head and said: "Gen. Grant
occupies only one seat; the soldiers can ride."
THEY have swept ladies down South. They
are snuff dippers and they chew. A. Tennessee
writes was helping to play one of the "kissing
games" at a house warming, and he says: 'After
a lively , chase I caught her, and when, just as
was drawing the little angel into my arms,
preparatory to embracing her, she said., Hold
on a minute,—wait till I take my tobacco out
of my mouth."
