Washington, Jan. 21.—Mayor Mashy of C'iiK’immti testified liefore tho bouse committee investijilting tie* Ohio ballot box forgery yesterday. He produced a numU r of letters from prominent Ohioans indorsing Wood for ti* smoke iinqiect*>r*hip. Among these were several from Governor Foraker and one from Dowell, law j no t net of Refwenentative Butte rworth. After it became known that the Im Hot I tor pa|#r WU* a forgery, Wood came to the mayor and explained that tliere were always three or four ch ques working to get a bill through congress aud it #as ii«*c*»hkaiv to have certain j«|m to nhow some of these cliques by other [#*r»son# who were interested in a bill in order to shut them off. John Sullivan, a wholesale liquor dealer of Cincinnati. testified that Wood had called on him and left a letter bi lie given to Frank Kelly, secretary of the Democratic canqmign committee. (kiveriKir Foraker, who examined the wit-Bes#, said (lie object of tile testimony was to show that Wood was in communication with tile Democratic cninpnign committee and with Mr. t’auipkell. Ho would en* lea tot to show this connection Ibrough oilier witnesses. Frank J. Kelly of Ciucitinati, secretary of the Democratic canqmigu committal’ during the last gulicrnat* trial ranqioigu, testified that he wa# given the letter left by Wood with Sullivan. Ile found tliat it wa* a letter from Governor Foraker to Governor Luo* of Michigan. He sent it to Mr. Campi**)! thinking use might I#* made of it. Wit news had given it to Lewis J. Ba ii ta id of the Democratic rauqiaign commit toe to bt* given to Mr. Campln’U. Governor Foraker, at this point, said he wanted Mr. Barnard sulqiccnaed and a tele graphic summon* was act-on tingly sent to bim. Wood wa# again calli si to the stainl. In ammer to question# from Mr. CogsweU he said Governor Foraker'# brother Jim had first suggested to him to apply for the smoke tn-M|Ns*n>rship. Tile governor wanted a certain kind of ]ia|ier and he trust to till the order. HE FACED THE MUN ATU REN. Frank L. Mil ward of Cincinnati, a mechanical draughtiinuui, was the iM*xt witness. lie was si rn wn tile forgtsl p»js*r.

W(hk! wanUsl Uh* witneriN to do the tracing and azured him it would do no harm. Wood 1 told him a very plausible story about the imper, stating that it w as to be u#*sl only to j obtain j* is session of another jmjier from the Democratic canqsUgn committee. Witness true*si the lianu**. Wo*xl t*«>k the paper away alai the witness licgan to get worried. He tilt] Mr. Murray, who informed Judge Ha rn lait, ami through him the matter came out:    TIm* witness had gone to Mr. Hal- Ktend after the publication of Uh* paper and told him about tin* whole matter. Mr. Halstead did lait bulievo him. He received no money for the w<irk. Witness is a young limn alioat 20 years old, ami hi# testimony was given in a straightforward manner. lewis M. 11u<id* iii of Cincinnati was the last witness.

Washington, Jan. 21.- The feature of yesterday'# senate pm**eedings eras the MpeHchcs and political deflate of Kenabir# I’asco** ami < 'handler on tile paragraph in the president's message n*s|meting federal «xmtrol of elix’ti*#!#. After n Hit ire business the intro*Imdion of bills anti favorable i*e}Hirte from committees on billa pruvuling for the a«lniission of Wyoming and for a temjxiniry form at government for Oklahoma, Mr. Paaooe n*l*ln*ss(*d the w'liate on the *ubj*s-t of feiieral control of cks’tioiis. Reconstru<*tioii measures and Hie work of army olH**eiii, freedmen'# bureau agents, camp followers ami stragglers, lie said, were effort*, of the Republican {tarty to Imild up a southern “annex” to their {tarty and thus pi-* dong its lease of power. It turned out to be a ro{ie of sand, and now the attempt wa# to Im* made to seize the electoral machinery of the states. Tile message of the praddeut, he said, had contain**! no syllable in favor of free ami hon**st election*, ex****jit as to the stqiprmdon of the v*it*■# of poIoidI j#*oplo at the South. There was m> evidence Iv fore Ut** c* nm try of any such suppn-xsion. Nom* had lieen tsuii-muiii*Tted t*> congress. It was simply a matter of ii if CT** nee. Ile presented some electi*m statistic* from lj»st**m. Western and S*iuU»-eru states to |ir*»ve that “the silent voter is increasing in every section of tile country." In txHiclusion tie stated that his voice and vote would b** given in favor of standing by the method# of election w Inch liad come (low n from the days <if Washington and Jefferson. LR. CHANDLKR’H HKTLV. Mr. Chandler followed Mr. Pascoe. That senator, he said, had complained of the cliar-acter *if soim* citizen# of the South who had come north a# witnesses coo*vining political outrag**s in tliat section; an I alsti liad something to say alniut t ie silent voter. Then* was one citizen of Fl<>ri<iu. said Mr. Chandler, who will not come mirth to testify concerning p’litical *»utrages, and who might be termed a “silent v*der.” Tliat man was John Burr, a colored citizen of Madison oountv, Florida, who in October last, having been to Jaduonvilfe as a w itness concerning political outrages, was killed ou his return to Madison county by the vicrat* of that county on account of th*- ^alimony w hich be had given. Mr. (’handler also reforrel to the driving by masked Democrats from his home in Jefferson county, Fla., of J. G. Cole, lieeausa he was a prominent K**|>ubli<*an; ani he read extract# on tile subject of the outruge from ar-ti<i**s in the New York Tribune, the Monticello, Fla., Constitution, the Gainesville, Flu., Advocate and the Milwaukee Sentinel. He hoi-si the senator (Mr. Uas.'oe) would inform the senate whether be did not consider such transactions as these reasons why it would be wist* and judicious for the government of the United States to {ass some law for the protection of Republican voter* and for fair •lections in the Neath for representatives in «nngrem. He also reminded Mr. Pascoe of other po lit bal murders ami outrage* in Florida, going as far lack as IWL If tber# was any one -tate that needed the benefit of a federal election law, in <*ounectRm with congressional elections, it was the state of Florida. He submitted to the senator (Mr. Pascoe) whether he had not latter, under the circumrtanoe**. waive hi# objections to national interference in election-and to the (sissage of a national election law that would at least secure ©lee tions in Flonthi that would lie (for once in the history of tliat state) both honest ami peaceful. M • «£ iscne, in a rejoinder, said he would not to. .ow Senator Chandler in his ramblings from his scrap book; hit expressed the lie-lief that the election# in Florida, ever Mace the memorable one in 1H7W, were as fair, a* Iteaccful and as quiet as they were in New Ungiand. It was not surprising that there were some irregularities then, tie**ause tile senator (Mr. Chandler) liad been one of tile princqiul agent# in tho Florida election fraud in I HTH, aud tile demoralization resulting from that had not entirely disappeared The allusion to his course in Florida inlSTfi brought Mr. (’handler to his feet again, and he denied the charge that he had then a{»-pmached th** chairman of the state canvassing Guin! and had promised that if tile state was canvassed for Hayes the majority of the returning I # si rd wrould Is* taken care of. He denied that statement atnoiutoly and d*s*lared that the fronds of Mr. Hayes had n“Sorted to rn* extraonlinary means . -n that orotxiuo. Mr. Pius'*«e said that the <‘barge had l**en often made and printed, and that this was th** first time that it hail lieen denied. Mr. Ingalls said that it had lieen his {Hir-|s»s** to address the senate to-day on th** general siibjer't dis*-uss*sl by the senators from Atalanta (Morgan), South Carolina (Butler) an«l Florida (Pas*1*#*), but lie was suffering from the consequence# of the prevailing malady to such an extent that he would lie unable to do no. He gave notice, however, that on Til un# lay, at 2 o’clock, he would move tin* consideration of Mr. Butler’# bill for the pur Is»se of making some observations thereon. The senate then pr***eeded to ties consideration of executive business and at 4 p. in. adjourned. THE NKW STATE PRISON. IN TDK HOUSE.

Cornwall, the Princeton college exjiert, who examined the st* en Ach of Mrs. KnilTen, testified that Hie examination did not develop any poisonous matter. The analysis hail develo|ied a slight trace of morphia. but not in suflicieut quantities to enable him to assert its presence. After the examination of several other w itness*** the coroner's jury adj*Hirne«l for the wi'i'k, thus throwing the resqMinsihility of the case *N» tin* grand jury.
