THE PLOT OF THE SCHJ:MEKS TO
KEEP UP GOLD TOE CROPS HIE
OPERATION ON THE PRESIDENT
GRANT A STUDENT OF FINANCES
HOW CORBIN WAS MANIPULATED
AND USED HIS RELATIONS WITH
THE PRESIDENT THE PARK FR1
DAY RICH 1 K V K l.o I'M EN 'i Ac.
l WUr0W, Janaary 2B. lfi"0.
Yerterday Jay Gould and James Fiak, Jin, p
iTeared before the House Committee: on Banking
and Currency and gave full evideiK-e in the mat
ter of the faraoua September gold panic In New
York) Each witness -waa before the committee
for several hours, but testified in the mair. to con
details, of Which the following is a re
sume : The committee asked the witneese to go
ahead in their own way, and giv their version
of the cause t hat led to the panic, and as to
whether any Government officials were engaged
in the speculation, Ac. They then commenced
by stating that they were, manager and interest
ed parties in the Erie railroad a forjroraiion
that ought to earn sixteen ear seventeen millions
a year, and which waa one of the principal trunk
lines in moving the western crops to tbe caMaro
market. When gold was high, ate i a,
1867, and 1808, the price of the crop vrar, alao
high, and naturally enough moved rapidly to
market. Last spring they saw that gold was can
tlie define, and looked forward to see whau
would be the result, if it continued to go down,
aa moving the.cropa in the fitlt, s they weie
keroelv intereated to know what kind of a buai
SE their road would do when that time came
aronnrl. They mad op their nrfnd that the
price B gold wwfjM be go-rerrted a good deal by
he financial policy of the Administration ; anrt
to ascertain tbe latter Mr. JayGcaild flm direct
ed his ttlrnttaa They, tbercfaee, eomnsnced
operations oa tbr l.rlh of Jmie, 18C9. when
President Grant wa on board tbe Sound sieam
er of Fiak A Gesild, on hi way to th Boston
Jubilee. The President attended a dinaer at
which seven others we preaemt. L the 8
... .it,.,, ,rna.! mm finances, and it appear-
"to our aatonisnmeni iruu eirani
at 6nc proweedad to the Presi
dent that it wa. bad poBByJl put golu down in
the fall; that !A geVartlh t-rfys worild
not be rrKsred. TM fldrl JhWecretary Mefil
loch was reforred to a lavfKgweeti the true one
in that partienhtr, as hatrya kcf.t ghld htjh
in the fsll to giwe the West a Rood prwe for Its
. . . . lit-,-,
crori. To tnia tne riitwuawi Mnmii .",
.,iin a naiwht aa weB Prick th
now for it ha got to be daaeaorne time." This
was all that took paae iho,a4 the President
was not aoundrd again until be appeared at Long
Branch, in July, when he did not seem to eare
to talk further 'cn the subject. In the mean
lime Mr. Gould had become acquainted with the
President' brother-in-law, Mr. Abel K. Corbin,
and they fro'i-iently talked over the ctteot of tbe
decline of gold on the tnuunesa of the conmry,
and both agreed that no man was then makiw-c
a dollar inleghinmte trade, and that it aroulu
grow wnrae as gold declined, Corbin believe !
with Gould that if this theory were correctly
represented to the President and Secretary Bout
well It might induce a change. Accordingly Mr.
Gould wrote to Mr. Boutwell, and receiver! a re
ply which did not indicate what the Gorero
incnt wraild do in financial matters. This waa
the last of July, and Grant waa Mien on his way
to Newport on board of Fbk A Co, steamer.
Could wrote a letter to the President stating
that he had btforniation that three hundred ves
sel were then on the way to Liverpool, from
Mediterranean porta, ecjrared to move the crop..
in Europe, tiol.l waa then :i 1 ami .J in Stir
York; and in Mending this letter to the Preai
dent by Mr. Eik, liould requeted tlie latter to
aay to Grant that if th Government would de
cide not to sell gold the price could be putuuin
tha market, the crop could b moved by rail to
New York, and thence by . water to European
markets, and thai business would thrive again.
Fisk aaya he had a long conversation with Grant
to thia effect, and the result was that the Presi
dent wrote to Boutwall : but h learned snbee
uueiitlv that the latter had made marie no reply.
The witnesses then detailed how, through Cor
inflnenee, (General BnttertVrld waa- made assist
ant treasurer at New York. It was first intend
ed to make Catherwood iCorbin's aon-in-law)
the assistant treasurer, but it waa opposed on tbe
ground of relationship, and Bittterneld was put
in. This appointment confirmed to Gould Cor
bin'a influence with Grant, and they both talker!
over frequently the financial situation. C'orlun
said gold ought to be higher, and be believed it
could be put up and money road out of the
transaction. Having gut Butterneld in th pro
par office, Corbin said he had conceived the idea
of controlling the Government on theg"ld ques
tion. Gould says that Corbin commenced at
once to interview Grant, and that he (Gordd) af
terward interviewed Corbin. The latter repor
ted that he could regiriat Grant, and On theae
assurance the first tranaaetion - made.
Gould tavtifie that he bo-ight two million and
a half of gold at S7. Haifa million waa for
Mm. Grant, half a million for (reneral Porter,
private secretary to the President, and the rest
wa divided between Corbin and Gourd. Fisk
testifies that Corbin told bim that Mra. Grant's
gold had been sold out, and netted a profit of
S35,0U0, which had been remitted to her at
Waid.ington. Th! wa in tbe beginning of Sep
tember, and it appears from the evidence tliat
Fisk did not step into the speculation until then,
when Gould introduced him to Corbin by letter,
which-wa followed by a three-horn' itiw.
Corbin. said on this occasion to Fisk that every
thing waa fixed ; that tbe understanding with
Crept wa perfect j that no sold was to be sold
by tiie Government, aud that no uneaarucn need
bo felt, and that Fisk could go on and buy. Th
latter says be was inclined to doubt Corbin's
rttaieinawl at grt,-btlt Atn wa so srigfttieit in hi
detnils and punitive of the results that lie finally
belied all besaid. Cotbtn rtjfclWB i "I am right
behind the throne, tllveyoumelfnonnealness.''
Aoiit ptember Corbin applied to Fisk
and I lould for a trustworthy, confidential man
to taU- a letter in great haste to the Iresidt nt,
who wzx then at Washington, Pfnn., and to tel
egraph instantly back hat the President said.
V. ' ). Chpin vr.-w tlie imui eOlected. I le re

Fisk tealiiica lha eoiii tlierca.'ier, they received
Btcicgrani from CLapln sayii., "Lcftcr drltv

preceding the I ridny of the panic. The hert
dav (Thimday) Corbin was interviewed, and
i said to Hsk. "AH is Bow right. That Inter
baa ciiiiclicd )t,"' Fisk and Gould then fay that
on thai state of tacts the Governuient would not
interfere. The afitrnoon of that Thursday Uiey
went into Wall street and commenced to buy
old. When they commenced; gold was 36.
and before dark it was 41. Fisk gives here an
account of the dinner given, b? members of tire
Union League to Secretary Boutwell in New
York on thutycry aftsrnobo, at which the hE-nr-.
failed to get any finaftdal. information, which
caused a split in the ir ' ranks, and comi'ellcd
them to eommenee to cover thdr 'short," there
by adding to the general influence lh.it was sen
ding gold rij ward. This war incidentally, he
adds, a part of tiie coultnation.

He was authorised to aay that the State print

The records of the Court would show that ho
gave a fictitious note for illegal purriosc. If
the Republican party expected to live and thrive
in this Slate they would lutve to throw over
lourd dishonest leaders and show they intended

dishonest purpose of few dishonest men, then
he wished to tee the party die and would help

there had been serious frauds perpetrated in tb
