LOUISVILLE, September 5-Evening.
The following is the oommuuioutiou in
full presented by the Louisiaua delega?
tion to the National Democratic Con?
vention: As repr?sentatives of tho De?
mocracy of tho State of Louisiaua, the
solemn duty is imposed upon OH, at this
moment, of voting unanimously fur
Charles O'Conor as the caudidatu of thu
Demooratio pnrty for President, aud for
John Quincy Adams for Vice-president.
We believe that we represented, so furas
individual opinion oan be reproseuted in
the aggregate of a political body, the
trae principles of u republican govern?
ment. It came on us us an inspiration
that Charles O'Conor aud John Quincy
Adams might save the republic O'Conor
h*s refused to be our standard-bearer.
History must pass ou his reasons. We
believe him to be a citizen eminently
pure and devoted to a republican govern?
ment, as contemplated by Jefferson und
by Jackson, and without ostentation,
when occasion required heroism in asser?
tion of principles. With profound re?
gret, we huve heard epithets applied to
him by members of this Contention,
sinoe his absolute declination bas been
made known, which could only be ap?
plied to the basest of men. Hypocrisy
and cowardice were attributed to him.
We believe that the lust bopo of the
republio rested with this Convention.
To us it is a mutter of utter indiff?rence
whether Grant or Greeley succeed.
With sad hearts, we fursee the death of
Democratic principles aud a republican
government. Let us pray to God that
the impending revolution muy be with?
out blood. We came here in a spirit of
fraternity, nnd in that spirit we part from
a majority of you. The Convention,
before the deuuueiatious of O'Conor
wore uttered, had not, iu our opinion,
exhausted ult becoming means of pre?
vailing on hun to accept the distinguished
honor tendered him. Gentlemen, we
leave yon, with the painful conviction
that wo eau no longer serve our common
country, our State, our principles, by re?
maining with you. Signed David Scully,
E. C. Kelly aud J. H. L iir, on behalf of
the delegation from Louisiaua.
Immediately after the adjournment ol
the Convention, the delegates re-ussem
bled in mass meeting, with S. J. Bayard,
of Now Jersey, in thu chair. Mark M.
Pomeroy, Golladay, Wot?ins, of Georgia,
and others, made speeches, uud a tole
gram from Atlanta was. read anuonucing
great enthusiasm in that city over the
action of the Convention.
Tho following despatch was read:
QUINCY. MASS., September 5. - Colonel
Blanton Duncan, of Louisville, Ky : 1
will gladly servo as vice-President with
O'Conor, but will uccept nothing else.
O'Conor must positively stand.
(Signed) JOHN Q. ADAMS.
The following is Goodlett's resolution
Resolved, That it is the sonBe of this
Convention that Chas. O'Conor, having
fully aud heartily approved the objects
and purposes of this Convention, nod
having been unanimously nominated for
President, and John Quincy Adams, of
Massachusetts, for vice-President, that
the delegates of tho Domocratio party,
here assembled, are unwilling to make
other nominations in their stead; and
that the Democratic party will give them,
in any event, undivided support.
The Conveution refused to allow Dun?
can to cast thu vote of Maryland and
Texas. Goodlett's resolution was adopt?
ed by yeas, 554; nays, 30. After the

He gave his narnu as ?'anzey, aud said

child. The parties he had murdered
were five in number-a man with his
wife and two children, aud another mun
who wus unmarried. He said they were
traveling in a lumber wagon, uud that
they wore returning from Kuusns to their
home in Minnesota. He met them first
on Thursday, the loth. Having no
money and traveling iu the same direc?
tion, they kindly asked him to join them,
whioh he did. The wagon being large,
they all, six iu number, slept iu it. Tho
married mau, his wife and two children,
slept on a platform raised ou the frout of
thu wagon, while the remaining two
slept in the bottom of the bed below.
Last Sunday uight they camped within
half a mile of a house near Burr Oak
Grove. At this place the wretch con?
ceived the plau of murdering them and
making way with their horst's aud wagon,
their cu'?'e, (three or four iu number,)
and wb&w 7er mouey they might have in
their possession. After having murdered
them, be intonded to secrete them in the
brush on Clear Creek, near by. That
Sunday night, little dreaming of the
black hearted wretch they had taken
under their shelter, uud the awful fut?
that uwaited them, they laid down in the
wagon for the night, and all nave thc

FOUB HJZAOLESS MEN DANCE A QUA
UUU.UK IN A BRIDE'S BED CHAMBEE.
Thu following grotesquely horrible story
is translated from tho Paris Figaro:
This day eight days a wedding woe
ceiebruted ut A-. A merchant's
clerk named Marius Crumpin married a
young girl of eighteen, culled Auna
lt-. Auna U-wus au orphan
from childhood, and hud been educated
by au old priest dead six mouths ago.
Though sho was vory attractive and had
a dowry of 50,1)00 fraucs-i respectable
sum for u Bingle clerk-Crampiu was far
from jubilunt when be left tho church.
Some of his friends, in fact, on hearing
of bis murringo, hud sneered at tho mat?
ter in rather u singular manner, without
offering ?ny explanations, und bad de?
clined to be present at tho wedding.
Besides, when the sacrifice was consum?
mated, Crampiu felt tormented by sus?
picions which before marriage be re?
pelled with contempt. lu order to dis?
pel them, he drank deep, and toward
mid night he was pretty mellow. It was
now time to retire to rest. The bride
weut first and extinguished the taper.
Five minutes afterwards, Crampiu iu
turn arrived. "Hallo!" bu exclaimed,
stumbling, "my wife pretends to be
asleep. We must light the caudle again."
But just us hu was about to strike u light
with a match, he heard a rustling of cur
tuius, aud a mau appeared-a mun of
grout height, wrapped iu a white shroud
that was spotted over with blood, aud
without a hoad. He carried a red lan?
tern. Crampiu uttered a still.-d excla?
mation, the bride rosa hastily, und the
two remaiued spell-bound by terror at
tho frightful spectacle before their eyes.
For, from the corners of the room,
emerged other three headless persons,
ail clothed io white but blood-bespat?
tered winding sheets, each with a red
lautere in the oue hand, nud bis bead in
the other. They stationed themselves
in front of the fire-place and saluted the
young couple ic u ceremonious manner.
Then, strange to tell, they spoke.
Crampiu, in bis terror, knew not whe?
ther the voice issued from the budy or
from the head. "Good-day to you,
Citizeu Crumpin," said oue of the head
leas beings; "I am Joseph GrigoiB, a
client of my wife's great-greatgraud
futhtr." "Give mo thy baud, Crampin,"
said the other, sneeringly; "Madame
knows me too. I lost my bead in 1838,
at tho hands of her grand-father." By
this time, Crampiu was down on his
knees, uud his bride was moaning iu a
state of distraction from fear. But they
were alone in the house, which was situ?
ated at the gates of the town, und no?
body came near them. The third phau
toui then advauced. "Little one," he
said, in au amiablo tone, "thou cam-t
buust of having hud a grand-father who
did his work admirably. I, too, passed
through his bauds!" "Good God!"
groaueil Crampiu, in despair, "the man
without o head speaks through his nose!"
"Step out, children," called out tho
fourth spectre, "the nuptial ball is about
to begin. Forward both!" xVnd the
fonr guillotined persons tukiug their
plaoes, bioko iuto a dauce-a supernatu?
ral can-cau that frozo the blood in the
venn of the young couple. They leaped
up and down, backwards and forwards,
spread wido their winding sheets like
great white wings, and played like jug?
glers with their heads. It was frightful,
uud ull the more when suddenly they
burst out in chorus und sang some staves
of u horribly grotesque song. Then, all
ut once, opeuing tho door, they disap?
peared in the dark lobby, ufter having
deposited the four heads ou the knees of
tho bride. "Merciful heavens!" gasped
the latter, with horror, "the clients of
my family 1" "What family, madame?"
yelled Crumpin, horrified, in the midst
of his terror, by the exclamation. "For?
give me," supplicated the bride, throw?
ing herself on her knees before him;
"Grand-papa was au executioner." The
wretched Crampiu sprang to his feet und
then fell senseless. As soon as he re?
turned to himself, without taking time
to pack his trunk, be precipitately left
the town, and has not been again seeu.
The investigation of tho polico into the
mysterious affair resulted in tho disco?
very that the four gnillotiued persons
were none others than the friends of
Crampiu, who had learned, one knows
not bow, of . tho unfortunate connection
of the bride. Their four heads were four

THE SOUTH UNDER MILITARY RULE.
Seven years have elapsed since the Inst
hostile shot was fired in the American
civil war, and tho shadow of the bayonet
still lingers over the South. It is the
bayonet upholding in power the carpet?
bag regime which hus robbed tho im?
poverished people of over 8200,000,000.
The re-election of Graut means the per?
petuation of these cruel outrages. It
means poverty, despair and death to a
third of the Union. It means loss of
trade, derangement of business, and
eventual bankruptcy to tho North. Tho
South cannot be plundered and ber in?
dustries paralyzed without corresponding
sufferings at the North.

Row AT PriiOBTU CHURCH.-On San
day, the 25th ul ii mo, Pilgrim Church,
on the Western side of the County, wt s
the scene of a riot and tumult disgrace?
ful to the congregation, and exceedingly
annoying to the surrounding country.
This is au African church, presided over
und ministered unto by Rev. Sauoho
Sanders, ono of the Hubie legislutors of
the State. Ou this occasion, as we aro
informed, one Raymond Wright, co?
lored, presented himself at tho altar,
asking to be taken into membership with
tho church. In putting him thiough the
preliminary examination as to hiB fitness
for a seat umong the faithful, it leaked
out that he had always voted the D?mo?
cratie ticket, und that he had not re?
pented of this sin. The order was given
ut once for him to ho cast out as an un?
clean thing, and in pursuauce thereof,
he was marched out of the church and
out of the yard. Somehow or other, a
collision then occurred between the po?
lice, detailed by the Rev. Sancho, and a
portion of the congregation, and soon
the fight became general; men, women
and children participated, and continued
the riot during the greater portion of the
day. Sancho is a burning und a shining
light in the pulpit and in the halls of
legislation, and keeping, as he does,
both the religious ?nd politicul con?
science of his race, will, uo doubt, be
returned again to the House of Repre?
sentatives this fall.-Chester Reoorter.
A COLORED CHDRCH IN AN UPROAR.
The oolored Baptists in this oity have,
we understand, a pastor who preaches
religiou and not Radical politics on Sun?
days. Saturday night, loose who knew
his Conservative sentiments, without
consulting him or informing him of the
mutter, elected him third Vice-President
of the Greeley and Brown Club. Well,
ho went to church, without having seen
tho paper, and prepared to preach. He
was met by an angry Radical ignorant
oro nd, composed of snob bullet-headed
durkies as frequent Radical meetings.
Tbey told him he could not preach, and
some even threatened to turn him ont of
the church, erase his name from the
roll, aud u motion was made to that
effect. All this was because they thought
hu dared to think for himself and have
principles of his own. His assevera?
tions of innocence finally quieted them.
Ho had to swear on the Bible that he
knew nothing about the meeting, before
they would let him go into the pulpit.
