The House of Vogel to co., of Hong Kong has done u Large business in hemp silk and Lother goods Between China and America and Europe. Very recently the English and French consignees of the Terni received Sev i eral cargoes of cheap fourth rate Silks in place of first class goods which iad been ordered and paid for. Hardly had an investigation been begun when the arrival of the ship Richard Robinson in new York Satur it May with a cargo from the same House exl posed an exit if Ive fraud of tie same nature. Several new Yirk and Boston arms received consignments of hemp As they supposed by the vessel.

What we will lose 1 do not know but of course will the firm of Burgess a co., owners of the vessel refuse to a anything about the matter further Ihan that they knew Vogel amp co. To have been engaged in a somewhat similar crooked train Sacidon in december Llast and they were sati tied this last Busi iness was fraudulent. Liston april 10.�?the firm in this City mentioned As having been victimized by Vogel it co. Is that of Cyrus Wakefield amp po., dealers in East India goods washing Street. This firm had a consignment of 12.500 Bales of hemp by the Quot Richard Robin Ison Quot but owing to the Lack of knowledge As Ito what proportion of ther consignment is Limp and what matting they Are unable As 7et to give a statement of their losses. Boston april 10.�?the journal to-Nior-5w a morning will say concerning the China raids the firm of Vogel Bros., Hong Kong had succeeded in making for itself quite a reputation in ithe general Trade Between China and America land Europe often cutting under the Market but prose Vvong the strictest integrity in their dealings until within a few months. Tie ii it instance of Sharp practice brought against them is the exp i pediment they adopted last year. On be or two of Sions they bought in Lump vessel and cargo d immediately offered to sell in new York the Siple goods the vessel contained at Cost and freight. Such offers were of course is quickly snapped up and new York oae chants awaited the result of their bargains but when the vessel arrived they were to aimed upon to pay As freight a sum almost Large enough to buy the ship and certainly sufficient Ito bring the con of the goods up to full Market rates. More recently the firm adopted methods Imore frankly illegitimate. Dealings in a tidiness Trade we made by of letters of credit. The importer retains a letter of credit from some Well known banking Bouse. It is sent to Hong Kong and cashed by the local banker when to com Laaied by proper vouchers of shipment. The e merchandise shipper thus receives payment As soon As the goods Are put on Board the vessel late in Lasi the new York sugar refinery ordered by Cable from Vogel Bros a cargo of sugar stating telegraphic letter of credit would be sent As soon instruction could reach its London Bankers to at effect. Vogel Bros immediately shipped a a Ergo of chinese sugar of Quality it is stated and the local banker paid them the Price of the Able order. With the Bills of lading ten Days Ater the telegraphic letter of credit was received from London whereupon vog Lebros. Immediately shipped a second cargo and successfully negotiated the real letter of credit with another Hong Kong banker. Meantime the telegraphic order and Bills of lading were sent to for collection and the Bankers knowing the cargo had arrived cashed it bul by the next Steamer came the real letter of credit which the banking House was obliged to Cash it by ing genuine. The loss therefor fell upon the , the consignees refusing to accept the second cargo. The next victims Are european silk merchants. The English and French bilk Trade with China is Large and the Field for Vogel Bros operations was quite extensive. They received in All during the Glrst two i of the present year orders for about 16,000 Hales of first Grade silk. Payment we received before shipment in All cases the value of the goods being 8300 per Bale. Within a Short time the Roods reached their destination and the Hales we found to be made up of an outside freeing of Xoanh Grade silk filled with Sha valued iat about 810 per Case. The estimated to English and French merchants by this fraud amount. To $4,000,000.

Boston april 6.�?a remarkable conspiracy to extort Money from Charles Francis Adams and blackmail his family has just come to Light. The first intimation of the scheme was a warning receive i by Adams clerk on Friday last that Adams account at his Bank had been overdrawn. This was considered very surprising As he Vas known to have $18, j0o to his credit there. An investigation was begun and it was found that a Check for $17,-500, regularly endorsed and signed by Adams but filled in by another hand had been deposited in the Meic hauts Sank some time previously and had in the due course of business come around to Adams Bank. To Day j. S. Morrison was arrested on the 10 o clock train for new York. He made a statement that the Check represented Money Adams bad loss at gaming.

Adams was confused and did not seem to know what he was about and the sharper finally induced him to sign and endorse three checks one for $17,500, and one for $1,000, and one for f250. Morrison frankly said he did not believe or. Adams knew what he was doing and As he saw him after the swindle coming from his Home without any apparent agitation he supposed the game had sue needed and Adams had concluded to allow the Check to be paid. Another Man j. F. Norton is implicated but has not yet been arrested. Adams clerk on discovering this Check had been deposited had the account at the merchants Bank trusted and the Mather placed in the hands of detectives with the above result. Adams who is seventy six years old has been somewhat ill for two years and his mind is at times affected. He does not yet seem to realize the extent or nature of the transaction.
