Cincinnati Weekly Enquirer (Newspaper) - August 15, 1877, Cincinnati, OhioVol. Xxxviii no. 3.wednesday morning August 15. 1877. Whole no. 2097. It a a tale of two administrnti0n8. If i in Moore Bay non do a dial on of a Nafa razor Tea having Boer dlr Blancd from the Treuner depart a eat Tolla Nome hard stories about hares friends. Chicago times w. Moore a a uncharged special agent of the Treasury department has addressed to Secretary Sherman the following document. It has already called Forth a denial of one of its charges from or. V. Boynton a newspaper correspondent whom Moore accuses of blackmail in compliance with department instructions sated june 27 last i proceeded to Norfolk vs., to examine into alleged irregularities committed in the custom House at that port under the regime of Luther t. Lee deceased late collector of customs. In an examination lasting from the 18th of june to the 8th of july 1 discovered a systematic falsification of the books and records of the Customhouse running through almost the whole period of Leeds administration. At a rough estimate i should fix these speculations from april 17.1870, the Date of Lee s first appointment to february 11, 1877, the Date of appointment of his successor at cd,000. The falsifications so far As i have examen appear to be in the handwriting of Charles k. Oett Illch special Deputy and Henry Miller cashier and constitute the boldest and most reckless system of fraud when the comparative insignificance of the office is considered on record. Or. 8. E. Chamberlain was stationed at Norfolk in the capacity of special agent of the Treasury during a Large portion of the time that these frauds were going on and there Are numerous reports from him representing that he was habitually examining the office and the records were properly kept and receipts accounted for. The facts Are that there never was a Day during the time that or. Chamberlain was making these reports of the condition of the Norfolk Customhouse that the Cash on hand corresponded with the amount that appeared by the Cash Book to be due and Miller admitted to me that it was rarely that they were Able to balance the quot monthly account current without taking Post dated official checks and raising Money thereon of brokers to enable them to make the necessary Deposit with the United states Treasury. Collector Braxton informed me that when he entered upon the duties of his office As Leeds successor special agent Chamberlain had in his Possession a Large number of original pai>er8 belonging to the custom House including manifests which he had some difficulty in getting returned and it is not certain that All have been returned that much of the confusion in the records of the office arises from the irresponsible action of or. Chamberlain withdrawing so Many important papers without properly accounting for them. The facts show that or. Chamberlain connived with the officers of the custom House in the frauds or was totally incompetent to Cope with the con 3>irators while the latter were stealing the entire duties on whole ship loads of dutiable cargoes and entering the ship upon the impost Book As a arriving in the proofs in my Possession at this Date july 9th establish beyond doubt the criminality of Gett Slich and Miller a is Well As the responsibility of the Bondsmen of the deceased collector for the larger part of the sum for which proofs arc at hand. The two suspicion de officers were at Large and the latter sureties reside out of the la Tate and i deem it important to get the cases in the hands of the United states District attorney at on it a a to assure the government All available reparation. On monday july 9th, i arrived at Washington to Confer with the authorities As to the proper Mode of procedure and while conferring with the District attorney or seeking to communicate with him i was informed that the president at a Cabinet meet Long on Fred by july 6th, had directed the acting Secretary of the Treasury to dismiss me. Hearing that the president had based his action upon representations made by one h. Boynton and others i immediately informed the president that the documents which or. Boynton had Mude the basis of his representations against me were confidential correspondence Between myself of an officer of the government and president Grant that theft letters were referred by the president to the Secretary of the Treasury and became part of tie official files of the department that 1 had reason to believe they were stolen from the files through the Connivance of a l. Sturtevant and others in the office of the Secretary and put in the hands of said Boynton to secure my removal As supervising special agent and reinstate a. K. Tingle Sturc Vantz a brother in Law in my Stead that Boynton attempted to blackmail me by seeking to have me pay a Large sum of Money for the suppression of said papers that failing in this he did use them for his own profit by causing their publication in the new York Tribune and other papers and further used them in the interest of said Sturtevant and others to secure my removal that Boynton aside from his mercenary motive was actuated by the spirit of sex Secretary Bristow and friends and wished to punish me because i had in my official capacity shown to the president that the Power of the United states Treasury department had been prostituted to political purposes in forwarding or. Bristow a candidacy for the presidency. On wednesday july 11, 1877, hon. G. Schleicher carried to the president a letter from judge r. M. Hughes United states judge for the Norfolk District who had arranged to Convene the grand jury to hear the cases i had prepared at once protesting in the interest of the government against my removal pending the investigation on which i w s engaged. The president put an endorsement on the Back of judge Hughes letter virtually withdrawing his order und leaving my Case to the option of the acting Secretary. I carried the document at the request of colonel Schleicher directly to acting Secretary Mccormick. The strikes ensued and absorbed the attention of the authorities and for the time suspended action upon my matter As Well As this investigation. The excitement having subsided. I now bring it again to your attention. When i was in route to the acting Secretary a office with the endorsement the supervising special agent joined me it his door and accompanied me during this walk. I remarked Attiat the result of my investigation placed or. in an unenviable Light whereupon or. Tingle import Ned me to suppress anything reflecting against or. Chamberlain. The fact that or. Tingle has secured the appointment of or. Chambe lain As my successor As a special agent May account for Bis solicitude As the charge involves his own official competency. The rules of civil service demand that i have an Opportunity to meet my accusers. Justice to the president of Well As to myself should guarantee me an Opportunity to expose the a ulisious liars who have imposed upon him in the mutter. 1 beg to Call attention to me fact that in the publications respecting my removal special stress Lias been Given in Cert Niu newspapers to the fact that i am the Only officer in the departments that sex president Grant made a w Ittu request to have retained while in the same connection they intimate official dereliction on my part As the basis of the presidents action. A speedy investigation will at once remove this contemptible Ett Brt to besmirch the sex president and show president Hayes How greatly he has been deceived by pretended friends.

The halt Lake cremation. Detailed report of the few ceremonies accompanying it one Hundred and Twenty Alx pounds of flesh reduced to four Pound for . From tie Salt Lake Herald the cremation ceremonies yesterday Over the remains of the late or. Winslow attracted a great crowd of people. 8ome went of mourners and friends of the deceased others for the purpose of intelligent observation Aud a Large number urged by a vulgar curiosity. About 5 30 of clock the body was brought from 8exton Taylor a to the cemetery and was taken charge of by the pall bearers. Judges Mckean Haydon and Lagan and messes. O. J. Hollister Fred Lockly and j. E. Taylor. these gentlemen the coffin was carried to the rear of the fur name where the last looks were to be taken and tie last ceremonies to be carried out. The silence was impressive the crowd so demonstrative and excited a few moments before standing with uncovered Heads in respectful and reverential silence. The deceased being a disbeliever in fixed forms of religion the usual ceremonies of burial were not observed. No prayer was uttered no Sermon preached no funeral Anthem Sung. Some tastefully wrought wreaths of Flowers were Laid upon the temporary casket and Lent the Only softening influence to the scene yet though the conventional forms of religion were dispensed with one could not help realizing the solemnity of tie Occa ion nor forget that a human being once full of life and intelligence Lay there cold silent and dead a portentous contrast to Trio excited and inconsiderate throng which surrounded his remains. The funeral Assembly if it May ire sgt called was first addressed by or. Hamilton to whose untiring exertions the Success of the undertaking is mainly due. The doctor explained the cremation to be brought about by the desire of the deceased As expressed in his will and Oil previous occasions for tie past forty years and spoke feelingly of his Many Virtues his native and acquired abilities and of the Good motives and Christian conduct which had made his whole existence satisfactory to himself and beneficial to his race. Or. Hamilton on concluding his remarks introduced general Bane who eloquently eulogized the character of his late Friend whom he pointed out As a Model worthy of imitation to the Young. The general then spoke of the sentiments entertained by or. Winslow relative to the subject of cremation and enlarged on the repulsive ass and evil sanitary results of slow decay in the Earth. Or. Smart of Camp Douglas followed and showed himself to ire a Able speaker and a thoroughly scientific inf Earnest advocate of cremation. With regard to tie views entertained by people on this subject he made a division of two classes first the majority who uphold As a result of Early education and inherited sentimentalism tie conventional forms of disposing of the body and who regard cremation As a sacrilegious interference Witla established and divine rules and second the exceptional few who believe in cremation As a sanitary measure and As a natural and proper disposition of the body and who claim that by this process no noxious gases Are evolved no Complex organic substances produced to taint the air and Poison tie water for the living. Or. Smart made a Strong argument against the old of in of burial showing that metallic and air tight coffins and processes of embalming prevent a natural decomposition of the body and retard the return of dust to dust. After the conclusion of these remarks the body was removed from tie casket deposited on a plate of Iron and devoted to the con using fires of Trio Furnace. The time occupied by the process of incineration was two hours and thirty five minutes and the weight of the ashes after a through and successful reduction was four pounds four ounces. His weight had been reduced from about one Hundred and eighty five a it funds at the time of his death to one Hundred and Twenty six pounds when the body was put into the Furnace. The fires had been kept up for some hours previous to the commencement of the cremation hence the Furnace was extremely hot when the copse was placed in the chamber. The Furnace being reverb oratory the flumes passed All around the body which viewed through the plates of isinglass in the sides of the chamber appeared to be a mass of blazing fire from a few moments after the flame touched it until the flesh had vanished and the Bones began to crumble. The Ash is a Clear White and after being removed was reduced in bulk in a mortar. It will be preserved in a Case As directed in the doctors will and sent East to be placed on his wife s coffin. During the burning a most offensive odor escaped from the flues and was observed by people fifty or sixty rods from the Furnace. How winnow wan cremated.

He died on the 7th of july and lire body had been embalmed and the heart Aud bowels taken out. The multitude was permitted to View tie face As tie body Lay in Plain coffin with Flowers strewn on it. Nti arly one thousand persons passed around the coffin rapidly immediately after which tie door of the Furnace which had already reached a read heat was opened and the Nody quickly pushed in on a Iron plate the door closed and the fireman began his work in Earnest. I he Furnace was constructed with double flues so that the flames came directly in Contact with an envelope above the body a Large current of air being admitted. The first appearance As seen through tie Mica apertures was that of roasting but in Twenty minutes nearly All the flesh was consumed and the tames had begun to crumble. Half an hour later very Little could be seen of the form of tire body. At 7 31 of clock or. Hamilton opened the door of the Furnace and Only one or two pieces of Bone could be seen Aud they crumbled under the weight of the ashes. At 8 55 the process was pronounced Complete and successful by drs. Hamilton mid smart. The fires were drawn and the Aslies left to Cool a Short time before being removed. Before the body was placed in the retort Short speeches were made by or. Hamilton and general m. M. Bone and or. Smart surgeon at Camp Douglas. Or. Smart gave a history of the science of cremation and spoke of the system of burial As injurious to Public health saying that the practice or cremation would increase with civilization and the growth of population. No prayer was said nor were any religious words uttered. This was in accordance with the injunctions of the deceased doctor. The fumes from the Furnace were unpleasantly perceptible at a distance from tie scene.

New Mexico and to the chinese Quarter in san Francisco but Quebec is the Strang a a st and Quai test City of them All. It is an american City where All the people talk French. It is in the new world but the houses Are two and three Hundred years old. And look As if they had just come from the South of France. The arms of Georgius Rex and Victoria Regina Are emblazoned every where. There is no Anny but the City is one great fortress with a thousand guns rusting in the rain or half concealed in weeds and grass. It is a commercial City inside of a great fortress a queer quaint strange gathering of nuns and guns. As you sail up the st. Lawrence Quebec looks like a great Rock in the Middle of the River crowned with Stone castles and convents speckled with glittering tin roofs and tin Clad steeples. The Rocky Promontory on which Quebec is built is about 400 feet High Ami it hangs Over the water like the highest Palisade Over the Hudson. Straight Back or South West of tie City a few Hundred cards begin tie famed Plains of Abraham where Wolfe Ana Montcalm both fell when the English took Quebec in 1759. Around High Quebec and separating it from the Plains of Abraham and from Low Quebec is n High Granite Wall full of antique loopholes and bristling with Rusty Columb ads. It is the Only walled cite with Gates on the continent the Only City in which revolutionary and Ante Revolti tonary fortresses and Era battlements Are preserved intact. Through the interest of lord Dufferin who wishes to make Quebec the summer residence of the governor general. All of the old Gates Are to be rebuilt with old Norman Turret and the top of the Stone rank it Art around the City is to be cleared off for a Public drive. It will be a Road up in the skies. 300 feet above the shipping one of the grandest drives on this or any other continent. One Gate is to be rebuilt by Queen Victoria and named Kent Gate after her father the Duke of Kent who used to live in Quebec. Quebec is the a show town of America. In it you see strange religious ceremonies fortifications As curious As the Alamo of san Antonio and a Mongrel French people As strange As the chinese residents of san Francisco. To All this add the Falls of Montra Orenco Lorette and chaudiere each within a two hours drive of the City and a View from the ramparts Down the st. Lawrence As grand As the View from inspiration Point Down into the Yosemite. And think How Quebec must inspire the tourist. A Little below Quebec is tie gloomy Gorge of tie Saguenay with its towering Clits and sullen Depths of water. Who first Quebec the father of Quebec was Jacques Cartier who sailed from Brittany in a Little 120-ton vessel Atn iut the size of or. Astor a new Yucht in 1535. Jacques Cartier went up the st. Lawrence to Montreal hoche Lagather came Back to Quebec which he named Cape Diamond stole a few Quebec indians including the chief Donnacona and then sailed Back to France to shake hands with Charles v. In 1541 Cartier returned to Quebec told the indians the t their captured Brothers had All married into the first families of France and become lords when in fact they were dead. The result was the indians kept away from Post trader Cartier and his friends and let them live on boiled roots and whale Oil till they were glad to go Back to France. In 1608 Samuel de Champlain landed at Quebec. He made gardens swindled the indians Hung one of his men for Mutiny then sailed on up the st. Lawrence to Montreal and marched Down and discovered and named Lake Champlain. Quebec remained a French town till 1759, when the Young English general Wolfe aged Only thirty two and tie French general Montcalm were both Clad to be killed for according to history when Wolfe was struck with the fatal Bullet he heard some one say quot they a who Fly quot asked Wolfe. Quot the enemy a a replied the attendant. To then i die said Wolfe and he died with a smile on his face. When Montcalm was hit he turned to the surgeon and asked quot How Long Cun i survive a quot ten or twelve hours perhaps less a answered the surgeon. Quot the sooner the better quot snid Montcalm quot for then 1 can not see the surrender of there is now a Conjoint Wolfe and Montcalm Monument to the two rival heroes on the place do armes in Quebec. On this Marble Monolith is a Long inscription commemorating their heroism and patriotism. Two Hundred years from now it will be no stranger to see general Grant and quot general Lee joining in one Monument than to see the Conjoint Monument to Wolfe and Montcalm in Quebec. There is another Monument to Wolfe erected on the Plains of Abraham but it is looked upon As a monumental joke. It is a Good Deal lice or. Moody s name in big letters on tie Monument of Bliss. Tie inscription on this Monument reads thus Here pied Wolfe victorious. Sept. 13, 1759. This pillar was erected by Tho British army in Canada a. D. 1849, his excellency Lieut. Gen.

In 177.� Benedict Arnold and Montgomery stormed the British under general Carleton again in Quebec. Since then until Canada became divided into provinces and Cut away from England Quebec has been the military head quarters of the British army in America. The proud British army has been called Home and in their place Are a few falstaff an provincial militia. The Soldier who showed me the fortifications yesterday and explained the Flag quietly asked me for a Quarter for doing it. The population of Quebec la about 60,000, among which Are 3,500 priests nuns and other Catholic officials. Tire Catholic Church holds the most valuable property in Quebec. One Convent has a four acre Garden in the heart of the City. All Church proc Rev is not subject to taxation and thus a Church by placing a Convent on one a Corner of a Large piece of land can escape All taxation. There Are ten catholics to one protestant in the province of Quebec while in the province of Ontario the protestants Are in the majority. Twenty Miles below Quebec we visited the famous pilgrimage Church of st. Anne so the Mother of the Virgin Mary and the grandmother of Christ. It is Here that thousands of lame and sick pilgrims go annually to be healed. The Church is full of crutches left there by devoted pilgrims claiming to have been cured. In the Church is a wrist Bone of st. Ann and Many other relies. A sick Young lady went Down with us to be cured. She was All Devotion spending every moment in prayer. Her father carried her into the Church mass was said st. Ann was appealed to and her Blessing invoked but All to no purpose. After the service the tears rolled Down the Young girls Cheeks As her father sadly carried her out of the Church again. Still the people do not lose Faith in the spiritual Power of st. Ann to cure the army of cripples who make the annual pilgrimage to her shrine. Eur Perkins. A Learned labourer on the irrepressible movement of labor. From a Cor. Of the Philadelphia times your recent articles on the labor question show that you Are utterly ignorant of the great movement world wide which labor is making to emancipate itself and you Are no Prophet and entirely deaf to the sullen murmur of the masses when you say that labor strikes Are Over in this land. The labor movement is communistic but it must not be confounded with the uprising in Paris in 1871. Thut was a struggle simply for local self government it was Paris against Versailles republicanism against absolutism and it necessarily attracted to its rank the Flower of France its Bruin and sinew the men who have made that nation prosperous and enabled it to wipe out its crushing Load of debt to German a first movement for local self government did assume genuine communistic phases and in doing so gave the world tire grandest since 93, when Paris and a mob and Danton Marat and Robespierre took up the cause of Vili station and Freedom it abolished All aristocracy in p Ris it eradicated the blighting evil of prostitution legalized under your very stable govern ment. The Empire which was quot peace a it Mode the streets of Paris As Safe at Midnight As midday it destroyed priest Craft and replaced religion with morals and had it not been crushed it would have revolutionized France and to paraphrase Bulwer from the decrepit and Feudal ashes of the Post would have risen a Structure dedicated to Liberty and Progress which would have Beer the fairest the Sun Ever shone on. Look at its last victims and from their character moral and religious judge its purposes. Rossel the scotch presbyterian who died with the lords prayer on his lips Cremieux the jew and Arnault the free thinker who coolly walking to death smoking a cigarette. These men were heroes martyrs in a cause which is not lost but forever gaining ground. And now for what the labor movement intends to do. All through the world there is a secret All powerful ceaseless organization which can not to suppressed. Two emperors and any number of Kings have tried to stifle it but like Banquo so ho6t and it represents the ghost of starving Mill onit will not Down. It is pledged to the abolition of wealth to the Elevation of the lowly. It wars against the Strong and would protect the weak. Starting Twenty years ago in Germany tie creation of Karl Marx it now numbers four million members As Large As al the standing armies of the world and it is resolved to see Justice done even though the heavens new England.

The ease was then adjourned for one week for the production of further evidence. An awful expiation. A negro in Ark Smas it urn a my at the stake for rape and murder the executioner unknown. Hamburg Ark Monitor on Friday night about Midnight a posse of Between sixty and seventy five men quietly entered our town went to the Blacksmith shop broke it open procured tools and proceeded to the jail and broke open the door. They went to the Ceil in which George Jackson the negro ravished and murderer of the Little girl Corinna Haynes was confined and breaking open Tho door of tie cell they took George out and departed. They carried him South of town about four Miles near the Berlin Road where they chained him to a Green sapling and there burned him. The whole affair was conducted so quietly except the noise made in breaking Oigt in tie shop that very few persons were aware of their presence until they were leaving town. As they were going off they set Upa loud Yelling which was done to prevent the voice of the negro from being heard. Some of our citizens saw them Riding through the streets and learning they had the negro followed them till they came to the place of execution. When they arrived there however the negro was burned to death and the men All gone. At or. Braz Zealey a Tho kidnappers halted and gave George some water and asked j. C. Brazzeall to go with them and hear what George had to say. This he declined doing. We Are told by or. Braz Zeale and others that George a cries were vociferous and were heard by the neighbors As far As two Miles off. While at the jail these men informed mrs. Holmes who lives in the jail and who was no doubt very much excited that she need not be alarmed As their business was to protect females. As to who they were or whence they came All is wrapped in mystery. They were seen in the evening South of Here and with some the citizens con-1 versed and notwithstanding they were undisguised none of them were recognised. Some said they were from Monroe some from Bastrop and some from Vicksburg. These statements As to the localities however amount to nothing.

Among the Hills Are numberless Ponds each one throwing up a Fountain from vits Center. A Small Stone Chapel of tasteful architecture stands on the top of one of the tills and a Tower also of Stone upon another. In the Chapel the last ceremonies Are performed before the interment. The inside As Well As the outside is finished off with Stone and the four Corners Are adorned with the statues of four of Massachusetts worthies a John Winthrop James Otis John Adams and Justice Story. Immediately before the Chapel a great Granite Sphinx has been placed the work of Martin Milmore the Young Boston sculptor. It bears this inscription America co Servata. Africa Liberat. Populo in natio ass Urgente Heron in sanguine Tuso. A it having been erected to commemorate the soldiers who fell in the War. Mount Auburn was of ened in 1831, and the first remains deposited there were those of Hannah Adams the eccentric iii Lorian of the jews. In walking along one of tie hillsides one runs across the Provo of the mathematician Bowditch. Over his Rem los a Bronze figure of himself sits in a chair of the same material with a Book in hand probably his quot practical navigator a and a Globe and other instruments beside him the whole giving the impression that he is still engaged in mathematical calculations. The grave of Rufus Choate is covered by a simple red Sandstone Block and attracts much attention on account of its modesty. Professor Agassiz has a Monument most unique in its character. It is a rough piece of Granite Rock having on one Side his name and on the other these words a Bowlder from the car Glacier a the scene of Agassiz a Early studies. This Rock was blasted out of the Glacier by the peasants of that neighbourhood who cherish very dearly the name of Agassiz and was dragged by them Many Miles of r the Snow to where transportation could be obtained to Send it to this country. A More fitting Monument for the naturalist there could not be. And that it was the present of these pendants makes it particularly interesting. More expressions of Surprise Are expressed at Sumner a grave than at any other at mount Auburn. It is u pleasant spot on a Little path just to one Side of the main Road which runs from the Chapel to the Tower. A great Oak rises a Little before you get to the grave and throws its kindly Shade Over the statesman s resting place. No magnificent monumental Shaft with elaborate epitaph Marks the spot where the great senator sleeps but a Plain White Marble Tablet Only a foot or so in height with the Brief inscription quot Charles sunnier born january 0, 18�1 died March 11,1874,�?� informs the stranger that he stands before tiie grave of a giant. What better commentary could there be on Sumner than his Humble Headstone no Long epitaph could so Well express his a ostentatious manner and tiie Beautiful simplicity of Liis life. No Lover of the american drama can visit mount Auburn without seeking out Charlotte Cushman a grave. A few months before her death miss Cushman was in Boston and doubtless aware by the state of tiie al fiction under a Tiili she was suffering that her end was not fur off went out to mount Auburn and picked out tiie spot where she desired to be buried. The found a lot on the Side of the Hill on which the Tower is situated which Hud been passed Over by other purchasers and immediately bought it. She did so she said because the spot commanded a full View of the winding Charles and of her native Boston which she loved so Well. As yet no Stone is Over her grave. As mount Auburn is quite modern it is wanting of course in stones with the ancient and antique inscriptions such As Are usually found in new England cemeteries. Yet there is one which is Odd enough to be in a grave Yard of a much earlier Date. One lot contains five stones one at each Corner and one in the Center. The four Corner stones Bear inscriptions respectively a my 1. Wife a my ii. Wife a a my iii wife a and a my in. Wife a while the one in the Middle Lias Titis quot our each wife seems to claim tin undivided one fourth of the poor Man. The vaults in mount Auburn Are numerous but a cremation Furnace has not yet been provided. The vaults usually have Marble doors and it is very difficult to pick the locks. In old times when hazing was Rife at Harvard these vaults were used As the receptacle of persecuted freshmen. In the dead of night a Swift but silent procession would carry the neophyte to College customs just aroused from Sweet dreams of Home and often but thinly Clad along the Roud which leads from Harvard Square to mount Auburn and having deposited him in one of these Stone houses would entertain him for some time with moans of r supernatural and infernal character and with figures of ghosts.
