The crimes of the Louisville defaulter people who knew and or Kaikko silent in kept a accurate account of his thefts what became of the Morey. The courier journal draws some serious lessons from the Jackson Deal cation. It says one of the Wisest of the human race uttered Many spot Helms of rare excellence but among them All Tubero is not Otool greater Worth than that which declare Quot a word figy Spiken is like Apple of Good in Pic Turre of a recognition of this truth would have saved All the ruin that George n. Jackson Baa inflicted upon a lame number of persons who Are now suffering because they ? him to frien red him Van daily and Bourev be knew that he was entirely unfit o be trusted when there was any property lying Loose near him that belonged to other people. The most mysterious thing conceded Wuu to , amounting to upward of $>0 000, brought about by the robberies of Geo. N. Jackson is in the fact i Nat Eyt n in Ducq Ial position in the t ame building in who a Jackson do an official was Zabita to commit this tupe amp Dous robbery Oft re who saw him acting As cab ii a of the Ellec Tiona of this wealthy District and who knew that he was a Tref kept this to themselves. The Deputy mar by who went to Jackson s Hruse of thursday evening to arrest him for this recent robbery is the Allicer who arrested him for forging s voucher while be was a clerk in the quartermaster s department when Gen. Palmer was commander of the military District of Kentucky. The entreaties of Jack Smus Mother and sister wrung from gun. Palmera reluctant consent to Rale Are the w Rete of condition that the Tunney was repaid to the quartermaster. A poor Mao Lent him the Money Aud Long afterwards Jackson swindled him Mil of a considerable part of the amount thus Lent. When Jackson in a state of moral and pecuniary ruin waa Hunting employment in the office of the clerk of the District court of the United states the who had arrested him a8 a forger is Naid to have spoken in severe terms of the attempt of such a character to procure recognition or employment in the clerk s of Bce. But this gentleman saw him installed in col. Buck nerds office in a position to steal thousands of dollars and remained silent. Had he Given the information he possessed to col. Buckner be might have saved that unfortunate citizen and his family from ruin. Why was not this done a word fitly spoken Quot would have Baen to col. Buckner and his friends Many a apples of Gold in pictures of Silver in the office of col. Kelley the pension agent the ebied clerk is a gentleman who was in the quartermaster s department when Jackson forged the voucher. He was thoroughly acquainted with l be whole transaction. From i desk in me pension office he could see Jackson playing cashier in the collector s office. When be saw him in this employment even Lor a single Day. His imperative duty As a citizen Lossy nothing of his official duty was to go into col. Buck nerds office and announce to him in the presence of Jackson this Man was connected with a nefarious crime in Tho quartermaster s department in this City into which Yon should look. This have save col. Buckler from ruin if it had not the Corse men e of be clerk would have Bren free fun it be -1 a very untimely and inexcusable reticence for sorely no one can Presena to it Ai silence in these circa Stancea was a virtue. In addition to these official witness a there Ltd a gentleman of great Worth in this City whose testimony would have been obtained easily he was employed at the Headquarters of Gen. Palmer and was the officer whole tee de the forgery of the voucher. A i not censured in this matter because we have no reason to know that he knew of Jackson s employment in the custom House. Also we have the statement that a member of a Well known firm on main Street was cognizant of a dishonest so on the part of the defaulting cashier made Evl deut some time before his appointment by col. Bockner. He bad proved himself a thief Wilein the employ if this firm yet while presumably known to them a occupying a very resp Inalle position in a Boob he had control of million of Money no hint of his previous character was Ever gov a to the gentleman who has Ike been ruined by his dishonesty. There is reason to believe that Jackson began Hia thieving of the customs As soon a be settled Down to his Busic As and discovered where the stealing could be done with the least Chance of detection. Hia ample experience in bit kind of work enabled him to see that the tobacco stomp were to a ret Field tor a thieving Harvest. The whisky and Beer stamp were armed with checks that showed his experienced stealing Eye that robbery connected with them would Lead to prompt detection. We Hope that the d Sastros resulta of the conduct to have described will be fruitful in teaching that alien is often criminal Especio any when a Man Well known to lie a thief is placed in a position of Trust in which Hie dishonesty May inflict irreparable damage. To Man can be justified in commending a notorious pickpocket to a company of people ignorant of his qualities. Or. J. H. Almond formerly a rep it a on several of the City newspapers a employed during a part of the summer and fail of 1874 by the Secretary and manager of the Louisville Board of Trad to assist him in the accumulation of local manufacturing and other statistical information. Tovac facts were to have Cona Itu ted a part of the Secretary s Anu us report. The work of getting the inform a system Vii rally and energetically prosecuted for nearly three month the different interests being Firat classified and then taken no separately until All of the representatives of each class had been visited. Or. Almond called non nearly All of the tobacco manufacturers and obtained from them a statement under the different beads Quot amount of capital invested Quot amount of Sale per annul Quot Quot coat of product Quot Etc. After getting these state Menta in order to test their correctness be called upon or. Ayres in or. Buck nerds office and asked him to fun Ruisi for the use of the Secretary and manager of the Board of Trade an aggregate statement of the stamp sold from july 1873, to july 1874 the Board of Trade year tor tobacco cigars and ale and Beer. The statement g Tai Given by or. Ayre lied closely with the figures already in s i oases Ion from other sources in every item except Cigar. In the item of Cigar at Arne for the period indicated there was such an important difference that a suspicion of official fraud waa at once excited in or. Almond s mind and at the time so expressed himself to or. J. J. Porter who merely remarked that if there was any stealing going on there the Board of Trade would have nothing to do with its development or exposure. Or. Almond subsequently called opon or. Ayere and pointed oat the supposed inaccuracy Aud the statement waa then corrected by him and made to conform to a result More prob Able than that proven by the first. It is positively stated that Jackson is known to Bave visited a Well known assignation House on Green Street a number of times during the last year. The woman who keeps the House says that be was not in the habit of meeting and one person but that Abe sent out for different women on Hia several visits. It is not believed however that he pet t soy considerable amount of the stolen Money on women. In the House referred to the proprietress Sav that be did not spend More than Foo during All the Lime that be visited her establishment. Neither is there any evidence that he Ever gambled but As yet there is not the least clue of what he did with the Money. It May be definitely a a de that the bulk of the Money probably $75,000was stolen daring last february. The existence of a on federate who has invested the proceeds of Jacksons crime is the most probable the Orvoil How the Money was disposed of. It is said that this self possessed scoundrel Atole $6,000 during the very Progress of the investigation which disclosed i guilt. It is very curious that Jackson kept in by de a a regular account of Bis robberies two full set of Bis to Niblo report were found one set a copy of the fraudulent report sent to Washington the other set containing the exact amount of Hia steal link. Tits looked As if he Felt it Necea Ary to keep an account of Stock in order to know the exact amount of i Prosperity in stealing. Tai amount correspond Tkv a cent with that which he i Vestiga Ion of the Treasury officials discovered in the accounts of Tho Coffta. Or.

In the firs Pla of a Short time alter it came to my knowledge that major Rankin was Likely to be a defaulter in i accounts As treasurer of the Board of trustees of the agricultural a Omega Aud whilst i was engaged in Asci iting tie Board in their Endeavor to secure the funds of the College so far an possible from the property of the major or.
