Some tiuoe ngo tho Post published a list of the " special cases" tliat had been brought to tho attention of Mr. Hayes, and disposcd of by him or his aseociates. Tliis list was far from being complete, as it ineluded only the most prominent of tho box stuffers, return forgers, and the thieves who had been rewarded for their peculiar services, but the following is what might be styled a more anibitious effort. Doubtless it is yet far from being complete. Doubtless thero aie hundreds of petty crimináis, such as manufacturera or forgers of affldavit3, and manipulators of small election precincts, who have been shoved into out way places, of whom the uation is as yet oblivious, but the following enumeration will answer all practical purposes. Of course the man wno is indebted to this worthy crowd for tho office he holds has no object in lifting them from the mire into places of emolument, of trust, and of power. It was pnrely accidental, of courso. To believe otherwise ia to believe Mr. Hayes privy in some moasnre to the frauds of which he is tho beneficiary, and that will never do.
