The similar quotes a number of newspaper articles from tha New York Sun, Evening Post, Times, Herald, and other newspapers 187am which thu acquittal of th. sirters published, and a letter of Mrs. Woodhull tc tbe editor of The Sun dated April 14, IhWi, aL tending to the accusations mad against two ladies. It was only much persuasion that Hi and Mm Martin could be induced to spea about the. matter, although they had them selves made it public, but they wer. flmiMj prevnili-d upon to reveal mob information lu would not tend to defeat tbe ilisi-ovcry o tht-ir trndnooi-s. Martin evidently intends tc make it very warm for Homebody.

Th( motive of it han not yet 'oeen discovered. Tlio first clue to unravelling the mystery was ol tainwl through Mrs. Clara B. Warner, who that she is a female physician of lieth, N. J., and was an inmate of a teinjx'i-- hospital in Hainstiad road. Word was brought to Mrs. Martin tlmt this woman had mtorcd the grossest liliels utxmt her and, with Martin, she culled upon lu-r at the b pita] Mrs. Martin discovered that Mrs. Warr was lalxiring under tlm impression that Vic- toria had nlicnatwl the afl'eotiom of her husband, and when she gave her grounds fm- this mimes wore mentioned that corroborated some suspicions of Mrs. Marl in's and furnished a clue to work upon. Mrs, Warner, feeling that she had done Mrs. Martin wrong, made a full confes- n, implicating many pennon who were prominent in the Beccher triul. This con- fession Mr. Martin now holds. Mrs. Martin, who wept while her husband told Ibis story, declares that she never knew Mr. Warner, nor ever saw such a to her knowledge, ihiougli Mrs. Warner, Mr. Martin was able- trace a woman who has confessed that she was hireil to coma to England and traduce Mrs. Martin and Lady Cook, and gives the names of her employers.

Nome rime ago she to a benevolent sioio'v and represented that Mrs. Martin owed her nyi-ar's salary undnr all agres- ini-nt. Thi-ru was nn tnith in this statement, and Mr. Jlnitin was greatly annoyed through the letters hu received from the secretary.

She acknowledges an thin-ship ul several articles which have ap poared from time to time in various Amur! cmi newspapers, and which were designed t. ruin the reputation of tlie sisters. These, Ii says, uero written under instructions of bn. ompli.jeis, and sometimes tliny were retumei to her for alteration on account of nut strong eluiugh. The latest outrage which these alleged long suffering uunien have to complain of is th dissemination of a leaflet entitled "Kexua Problems.'' This leaflet contains what pur port to lie extracts from six-echos deliverer by Mrs. Victoria Woodlmll, and containing utterances of a gross and inuuoral character The language attributed to her was never used by Mrs. Woodhull, nor did she ever speak on such subjects. The copy of this graceful publication was forwarded to tlie secretary of tlio hospital of which Mr. Martin is life governor. The leailet bore tho nai and proper address of Mrs. Martin, with whom the rrirtprs were invited to raitimuni- and it was by this means tbnt tlio oiis- tencc of the tract was made known. Mr. Martin and Kir Francis Cook are both very wealthy men and are in for a light to a finish. They advertise through their solicit, for Mrs. Warner, who has left the hospital, and that she will furnish them with other valuable clufis. Mrs. Murtin is greatly broken down in health, and is only now con- valescent aftur nn attack of congestion of lungs. nisnop o'noxxELL ASSAILS DAVITT.

Loxnrw, Jan. heavy gales pre- valent m England for the p-tst two days have ncrensod in violence, nnrl a liurriL-ana is earning much damage in tlie southern portion 'f tho isl-md. The Meniu strait is impassible owing to the furious gain. Many sailors have been blown -jvcrboanl nnd drowned in attempting the vissnge. The parade ground at Sand Hate uis abuost ruined by the storm. The hip Irex from CSreenock, for Rio, was wrecked on tho Needles Saturday and several of the crew drowned. The survivors clung o tho riggings twenty-four hours. The life inat.s made several daring but fruitless at- cmpts Ui rescue- them. Finally a rocket was firod over tho wreck, and by hi' line 'hns convpypd the man wore brought u-slvire yi-terday afU-rrioon. The steamer Yorkshire, which lias arrived at Liverpool rom lite .ton. had a tempestuous voyage. Three of her seamen were blown from the into the sea, and two were drowned. The steamship [Jmbria from New York re- lorts the voyage the roughest ever experi- ni-til by her oiTieers. Passengers were In-own down and some were badly bniisod. nhu oflicers prohibited any one from coming on deck for several hours. Ktoting In Portngal.

Klirvpyor and naval officer of the port of New York. In tlio naval aflice, under Mr. Hurt, ho found that the law was observed ab- solutely, both in letter and spirit. There were no collections nmdo for political poses, in any or lonn, and nothing like >oiilVal awn-ion was tolerated; each em- Jloye was left entirely free to contribute to "hichevcr political parly ho desired, or not x) contribute at all, if lie did not wish tu. TRIED Tf) EVADE THE LAW. In the colli..ctor'.s office, under Mr. Magom 10 says, them was apparently widespread but. not universal, and by no means always umKsful efforts to evailu the law by per- uading or forcing thu Republican clerks to ontrilmte. TOHC'EI) Tl) PAY IT. Ill the surveyor's olllce, under Mr. Beattio, he contributions, as far as is shown by he testimony of tlie twenty-eight witnessi-s xammeil wera universal The Democrats generally gave their money of their OH n ac- cord; but all the Republican clerks wero practically forced against their will to pay what were in reality political ass-cssmentj, for tlw benefit of the puny to which they wore opposed. This, was aiiximplishfld by a very ingenious and wide-spread system of veiled threats and covert intimidation, so we.il ear- ned out that it WHS completely successful, livery method was resorted to to oxUjrt tlio contributions, whilo nt the sam., time avoid- ing the actual demand Of money, liy these various means so much prussuro was brought on the employes t.hat in the end they all suc- cumbed and paid thuir money. A LACK OF VIGILANCE. Mr. Iloosevclt, while not charging the head of the office, Mr. Beattio, with complicity in this wrong doing, says tho fact remains tlmt these acts wero i-ummittnd in the ollice under his control. Kiich wid.-spivad and far-reach- ing ovasion of the law, hi. observes, but ill for the vigilance of those whose duty it was U) see the law enforced. The contrast in this between thu surveyor's olllcu under Mr. lleuttie. and tin, naval oillco under Mr. Hurt, he adds, reflects credit on the tat, ter and doos not reiletjt cmlit on thu former III some general observations on the col lye tiim ol political assessments Mr Koosevc.li says: MR. nOOSJSVELT'd COSCLfSlONft. "It if worth while saying at the ontKct that a number of investigations of tins sort bos mo tlmt the talk sc often heard iilmut injustice of not. allow ing clerks to mako 'voluntary contributions which the law in no wise, prevents, is all non- sense. Government employes do not as rule contribute simply to holp the political cause in which they beli The so-called voluntary contributions' aro nine times out of ton made from either tli hope of being retained in office, or else with the object, of gaining some advantage ovet the other clerks. In other words the em- ployes are coerced into making them for fear their positions will be jeopardized if they fail to doso. It is probably safe to say that pe cent of the money collected for political pur- lioses from minor governmental employs rep- resents simply no much blackmail. "This purticular species of robbery is mea enough ut best; wid one of its meanest feat UI-M is tho fact thnt the men most apt to con- tribute money, tha men most susceptible to iressure are those of opposite political faith to tha dominant party. Those who agree in politics with the party in control foci some assurance of protection if they refuse to be coerced into parting with their money; but Jie unfortunates of opixwito political t'nith filling they have no power behind the throne on which to rely, are nervously afraid of giving iffonsoand yield helplessly when threatened.''
