Ricuston. April 17.-Genesal Schofeld viaite in
and addressed the conventioa this morning. In
the course of Iis remarks he usaid that tthe ir-o. I
clad oath of office in thtOaetitution was ex
tremely objecttoeable. He had adnmiriatere1 the c
reconstruction laws in the State mare than- a
year. srad stated as the result of his experience e
that it would be practically impossible to carry
on the government of Virginia on sach a basis. i
]n appointing registering officer he had found
one, perha,.* twu. capable persons in a county
who could take this oath, and yet there were
thirty civil (fficere in these counties. In his
opinion the oath would be fatal to the Coatito
tion; in otter rr-eSpctA the Coostitution was t
Petbher better nor worse than those of other
Statesa, but much depended upon the men first
elected to carry it out. and that oath restricted
the rage necesary fur the selection of the best
men. Au a party measure it would be fatal. a
Appleuase followed the addrees, and after Gsn.
Schofeld left the hall a heated debate co-n
rnenced in eflorts to reconsider the vote adopting
the oath. II

Toe ELECTION YESTERDAY.-B- far as could be

vesterdmv's balloting. Matters passed off very

knock-dwns. buot fewer of these than in ordinary
elections, and the police books Indicate remark- tb
ably few arrests. A general spirit of forbearance
seemed to he exerci'ed, (with of course an ex-ep

ih-T'rinI;NtieS IN (gRETN& AND CARRoILTON. C
PSore trouble occurred at the p Its in Gretna yes- d
terday, from what cause we did not a.certiin.
Tue connmissioners inmmnediately closed the othce.
lowever, and dispatched a messenger to military
headquarters in this city. General Buchanan or- tl
(nrred a company of the first infantry over at n
omn c, but before their arrival the ditflcul:y had
ended, and voting was resumed. c
A t Carrcll'on, a more serious diffi u!ty occurred,
reculting probably in the death of a colored i in. t:
(lur informant states that one Stchwab, late a dele- d
gate to the reconstruction convention, and now
tl.e radical candidate for sheriff of Jefferson, was
arrested in front of the court bouse upon a charge
, f carrying concealed weapons. An attempt war e
malde to rescue him from the ofticers. whereupon ii
a mele ensued, in which a negro, named David
llutchensin, was shot through both jaws, c
and so seriously injured that his ree overy is im
probable. The ball after leaving hlr lacerated h
tI:e hand of ano'her man standing close by.
ichwab was retained in custody by the officers,
and three revolvers were found on his person.
Ithere is a considerable number of colored men
in the parish of Jefferson, who have their own A
views o(,f the bituatlon and support the Demo
cratic ticket. As we have been informed, these
thoughtful and respectable colored citizens, re
,i~lved to maintain t:eir rights at the polls, in the
fpce of all opponents and a struggle ensue], in II
awh ,h, two radical colored men were badly hurt. t

wts purposely creating a disturbance, took her to
the station house. The captain in command sent
her to the thirteenth precinct station to be loeksd
up. The sergeant in the latter place wasahooked
at the idea of imprisoning the woman with the
dead body of her child, which she refusetd to gve
up. and telegraphed to the captain, askIg ti he
was aware that the woman he had seat had a
dead child in her armst To whisch he replied in
the affrmative, directing her to be loeoked up and
a notice given to the coror. The sergeant

exchanges no words with his legal brethren. If
