very much excited tc-duy over tbe hap?

which ever ocourred iu Maoon, and
which will probably cost two men their

Abell and John J. Cherry were playing
a game of cards in Vannuok's saloon,

of the game a qanrrel arose between tbe
two men, and from high words tbey
finally oame to blows. Abell knocked
Cherry down. Dr. Cromwell W. John?

volver and fired at him, bat the ball
struok a button on Dr. Johnson's coat
and glanced off without doing him any
damage. Tbe next shot was at Cherry,
and took effect in his bowels, inflicting
what will probably prove to be a mortal
wound. Before any one could stop or
disarm him, Abell then pointed tbe
pistol at bis own breast just below the
heart, fired and tbe mau tell heavily iu
his tracks. Thore is some slight chance
for Cherry, but Abell'* case is clearly

has sued Caleb Cashing for $200,001)
?be). In a despatoh in Sunday's N*'w I
Orleans papers, tbe word "she qnotes"
was made "be qaotea." Tbe following
fanny thing is from the New York
World, in regard to Mrs. Gaines' charges:
"Tbe writer, yesterday, called on Mr,
Gashing, and asked him what he
thought about tho quasi charges brought
by Mrs. Gaines against Judgo Duiell.
Mr. Gushing said that his position as
counsel in the ease prevented bim from 1
revealing professional secrete; but be
felt at liberty to state that be knew of
nothing in Durell's conduct in relation
to Mrs: Gainea that was dishonorable or
unbeflttiug ^-upright. Judgo. fie won?
dered that any importance- had been
placed on Mrs. Gaines' statements. It
was a mistake that she bad any money
in her control, and all her story amount?
ed to was this: Stone, who had no
money, told Mrs. Gaiues, who had no
money, that unless tbey put tbeir purses
together and gave Judgo Durell the
money which neither of them had, Mrs.
Gaines would lose her ease. Tbey did
not attempt this rather impossible feat.
There was no proof that if tbey bad of-1
fered a bribe to Judge Durell, that be
would have taken it, and Mrs. Gaines
won her case, despite Stone's prognoe-!
tioations that bribery was tbe .line qua
non of her doing so. Clearly, according
to Mrs. Gaines' story, the only guilty
person in the matter was Stone, who
proposed purchasing justice und sub?
orning the judicial ermine. Mrs.
Gaines' reasoning, whioh induced her to
bring tbe charges she bad made against
Judge Durell, was a specimen - of wo?
man's logio. Stone told her to bribe
Durell. If sho had been in a position
to take Stone's advice, which she was not,
Durell would have fallen, like another
Adam to the temptation of another Eve.
The only possible tequitur, of course,'
was that Durell was even more guilty of
malfeasance in of?oe, from the very fact
that he did not take a bribe whioh was
never offered him, than he would have
been had he accepted one. As to the
alleged statements of Mrs. Gaiues, that
he (Mr. Cusbing) bad also advised ber
to bribe Jadge Durell; tbey were an en?
tire fabrication, fie never thought it
necessary, nor oontemplated any such
j arrangement, and he certainly would
never have advised her to put what she
did not possess where it would do the
most good. When C3ked whether be
bad beon or would be summoned as a
witness in tbe impeachment of Judgo
Durell, Mr. Cnshing expressed great
alarm at the prospect of taking tho two
days' journey to Washington, but com?
forted himself with the assurance that
us his testimony would bo iu favor of
tbe Judge, tbose who were conducting
tbe impeachment would take good care
that he was kept out of the way."

Tbe Senate considered the liquor
traffic commission and transportation
question. No action. Carpenter beat
Camoron, who wished to push the cen?
tennial bill, and after bearing tbe Loui
elana cleotion bill read, Wast asked
Senator Carpenter if bo proposed to fol?
low up bis speech by a motion to refer.
Carpenter replied that be was well awurc
of tbe fact tbat tbe Seuntor from Louis?
iana wanted to speak, and he wonld not
deprive bim of that privilege. The mo?
tion of Carpenter to lay aside all pend?
ing orders, and take up the Loumuuu
bill, was agreed to. Carpenter said he
proposed to go directly to business, aud
not to waste the time of the Senate in a
glowing speech. lie would repeat no?
thing he bad said on former occasions,
but bo would endeavor to single out
matters in oonnoction with tbe Louis?
iana oase, upon which both himself and
I tho Senator from Indiana hgreed, and
would endeavor to show tbat all tbe cir?
cumstances requirod tbe passage of tbe
bill proposed by bim. He reviewed tbe
election returns, and said it was clearly
shown that MoEeury bad received 9,960
majority, though bj did not bold the
election was a fair oue. As Congress
had already authorized ao investigation
into Louisiana affairs, it seemed to him
as if it had gone so fur in those, tbat it
must proceed and settle them. lie re?
ferred to tbe argument of tbo Senator
from Indiana, (Morton,) as to tbe Su?
preme Conrt of tbe State .having de?
cided in favor of Kellogg, and said the
testimony before tbe Senate oummittee
showed such a state of fraud as would
set aside the decision of any tribunal.
The Senator from tbe Committee on
Privileges and Elections, in bis report
iu relation to the Presidential electors in
Louisiana, had stated that the Lynch
board, in making tbo count, and de?
claring the election of the Presidential
electors, had no legal evidouco upon
which it could count the votes. The
Senator bad shown that no validity at
tached to the action of tho Lynch board
in tho count for Presidential electors,
and both houses of Congress acted npou
tbut report. Tbe Senator (Mortou) now
claimed that the Supremo Court of the
State had decided tbat the Lynch board
was tbe legal board, but he (Carpeuter)
called attention to tbo fact that tbat de?
cision was made before the report of tbe
Seuator from Indiana above referred to.
Ho regretted tbo Senator (Mortou) was
not iu his seat to-day, and would puss
from that brunch of bis urgumeut,
omitting many things which he intended
to refer to. How would Congress look
before the country, after deciding that
the cleotion was void as to the Presiden?
tial electors, but legal as to tbo State of?
ficials? Tbe Senator, (Morton,) having
led the Senate through tbe first phase,
now seeks to lead it iu a counter move?
ment. The Supreme Court of Louisi?
ana was part of the Stute Government,
aud when Cougress was to inquire whe?
ther tho government of that Statu was
republican or not, tho Supreme Court
could no more settle it than tho Legisla?
ture could. Tbat power was vested ex-1
clusively in Congress.
Again, tho question was not a judicial
one at all, but u political one, und must
j be determined by the political depart?
ment of tho Government. Thu Su?
preme Court of the United States itself
could not Bettle it, uud the decisiou of
the Supremo Court of Louiituuu was
not entitled to a moment's considera?
tion. The courts bad never attempted
to decide the question directly, but all
it did say, in ellcat, was, that the Lynch
board wus the legal board, but it never
said whether that board acted honestly
or corruptly. The Senator from In?
diana (Morton) had rested his case upon
i two points?tue decision of the Slate
Supremo Court and the reooguitiou ol
the Kellogg Government by tho Presi?
dent of tbe United States. Ou a for?
mer occasion he (Carpenter) had sluted
that a proper case bad never been made
out for the President's uctio.i, und the
Senator from Indiana got on bis high
horso to illustrate bis fidelity to thu
Adraiustration, stating it was entirely
unnecessary for him to bolster himself
up in executive favor by denouncing
somebody else for fulling short. Sup?
pose General Grant did miscontrue u
statute; did it muke him a worse man?
Not at all. He (Carpenter) protested
against tho Seuator, (Morton,) declaring
ttiat there bad beon an attack upon tbe
President, when he (Carpenter) pointed
out a misconstruction of a statute,
ouch justices ua Munsfied, Siory aud
Marshall would sit and listen for days
to an argument to show them where
they were in error; while a justice of
tbe peace would knock you down for
suggesting that ho may huve erred. He
(Carpentei) denied that ho had made
uuy attack on the President. Referring
to tbe argument of tbo Senator from
New Jersey, (Frolinghuysou,) as to tbe
power of the President to act in putting
down insurrection, wheu he was satisfied
himself that it existed, Carpenter said
there was but one man in tbe United
States, except Frelingbuysen, who en?
tertained such an opinion, und that was
Andrew Johnson. He maintained that
ho was tbe United States; that he was
the power to interpret the Constitution.
Frolinghuysou said thu Senator's
(Carpenter) information was very limit?
ed, not to know thai, the President had
Carpenter said oue of tho groatc.it
pleasures of his life was to add to his
store of information, und ho would
listen, as a faithful disciplo ut the feet
of bis master, wbon the gentleman from
New York would undertake to show him
that, nndor tbe Constitution, tho Presi?
dent, of his own volition, and without
proper reoord from tho Stute, could de?
cide that an insurrection existed iu tho
State, and proceed to put it down. A
court of justice could not decide a case
between tbe Senator aud himself of $200
without a record. Why? Because it
was a court of record, and had a seal;
und certainly the United States was a
court of reoord. Tho more cry by tele?
graph to the President, "come aud help
us," was not sufficient for his interfer?
ence. He believed tint if tho Federal
troops were withdrawn from Louisiana,
Kollogg's Government wonld not stand.
There were two questions iuvolved as
to the passage of this bill?first, have we
the power to paes it; second, tho expe?
diency of passing it. Tbe Constitution
provides that euuh State shall have a
republican form of government, and
one of tbo first requisites of a republi?
can form of government is that its
offices shall be tilled by persons elected
by tbe people. The power of Coogress
was derived from tho Constitution, not
from tbe tumults iu Louisiana, or
tho frauds of D.urell, or tbe Lynch
board; and he asked every Senator
within his hearing, if Congress bad uot
tbe power to give the people of that
State what they had been cheated out
of. namely, the right to eleot their own
^officers? ^Should our Government be
overthrown, it would be by these steady
encroachments. Congress shoo id see
at all times tbat each State had a repub?
lican form of government; and auy Se?
nator declaring tbat Congress had not
tbe power to interfere now, would de?
clare to Kellogg and his followers, "You
can repeat this thing in 187G, iu 1880,
or iu 1884; Congress has no power to
sot a right." If Congress had no autho?
rity to iaterfere, then the MoEuery Go?
vernment could set itself up also by I
force. Violence was as good n title us
fraud, and a little more manly. When
a man skulks beneath the soiled robes of
a Federal Judge, he has not tho manli?
ness of the one who goes out with sword
in hand to maintain his position. There
was no question, in his mind, as to tbe
power of Congress to tuko up the Con?
stitution of auy State and declare whe?
ther or not it was republican in form.
Tbe power of Congress was supreme.
Ferry, of Connecticut, said be muit
differ from tho geutleman as to tbe
power of Cougress.
Carpenter said ho was sorry tbo Sena?
tor would stand in bis place, und virtu?
ally say, if Kellogg and bis friends
joined bands and defied tbe people of
tbe State for fifty years, Cougress could
uot interfere. Did bo mean to say, if a
baud of ruffians should seize the State,
tbat Congress could not then interfere?
Ferry suid be meant to say, tbat under
our system of government, tbero is
within tbe State a remedy for usurpa?
tion of the government, or else a repub?
lican form of government is a total
Curpeuter said, suppose tbe people of
Couucoticut should declare they would
have u monarchy; that tbey were sick
and tiled of a republican government,
aud that their Governor and Legislature
should remain -in office for life, would
Congress then havo power to interfere?
Ferry said there wus a remedy for
thai. Where the whole people of u State
professed a monarchical government, it i
was an entirely different thing, lie
heartily concurred with tbe Senator
from Wisconsin, (Carpeuter,) that the
State Uoverumeut aud its laws, root uud
branch, were a usurpation, but could
not ugrto with him us to tbe remedies.
Carpenter said, iu a debate of this
kind, he was in the position of lighting
iu tbo open field against an umbuscude.
The gentleman had his views, but would
uot lot tbem out. If bo has a plan, why
uot let it bo known? lie (Carpenter)
was like McClolIau in oue tbiug?not
wedded to any particular plan. If tbe
Seuutor bad a plau, aud it was better
than the one bo (Carpenter) proposed,
be was ready to support it, as soou as
the Senator would remove tho seal of
confidence from it. The Senator (Ferry)
concurred with him, tbat tbo preseut
Government of Louisiana wus no go?
vern ixibul at. ad. but was USUrticd bv
Kellogg. He (Carpenter) believed the
Kellogg Government was held up by tho
bayonets of the United States, and was
sustained ut this hour by the troops of
tbo Uuited States, aud bo wanted to
ebow what remedy there was for tho dif?
ficulty. Tho Supreme Court of tbe
State was in conspiracy with Kellogg,
aud would not inaugurate any move for
reform. The State Legislature wus iu
tbe conspiracy, aud it would not do si.
Tbe Governor would not; and the peo?
ple could not, because tbe Federal bayo?
nets were leveled at tbem. Tho powers
of tbo Federal Government were as so?
vereign, except as limited by tbo Con?
stitution, as those of tbe Czar of Russia.
Congress could declare war to-morrow
j against uuy nation, with or without
cause. It could tax the last dollar from
tbe pockets of tho people, or establish
female suffrage, aud put the womou iu
tbe army. The grout argument made in
tbe press particularly, was tbe inexpe?
diency of ordering u now election, on
tbe ground tbat it would bo u dangerous
precedent; but tbat was not sound logic.
Calomel wus a dangerous medicine, und
as well might it bo said that because
doctors gave it to grown men, they
might give it to infants. Look at tbo
probable effect of Congress Baying it
could do nothing; look at tho present
oondition of thoBO Southeru States,
having just emerged from a oivil wur;
would it be safo to say to them, "When
you bold your elections next fall, gel in
by fraud or any way; tbero is no power
to put you oat?" What greater license
could be given to tbe lawlessness of tbe
laud? That element would say, "If that
is your game, we will play it;" aud they
would play it undor tbesunctiou of C >'.
gress. Such aolion, in tho present con?
dition of some of tbu Southern States,
would bo the most dangerous tbiug
tbat could bo said. Senutor Morton
bud said puss this bill, and there would
bo bloodshed in Louisiana. Ho said
tbo Republicans were all in favor of
Kellogg, aud tbo respectable. Democrats
were all iu favor of him. If they are,
who is to came tbe bloodshed? Ho
could be elected fairly, uud Congress
would sustain him iu his high office.
The speech of tbo Senator about blood?
shed exceeded any thing be hud beard
siuco be had loft tho nursery. It re?
minded him of the old song: "Fee, li,
j fo, fttml I smell tbo blood of uu Eng?
lishman!'' lilood, blood, blood, blood!
j Did tbo Senator expec*. to iuflceuos the
Sonate by any such argument? There
would bo no bloodshed by a new elec?
tion. The Government could euforco it
by tbe army aud navy, if necessary. Ifj
not, this nutiou had butter furl its ban-;
ner, aud put its sffjirs in the hands of a
Carpenter then rend from a speech
made by Kellogg in ibe Senate in 1868,
iu which ho saiil all tbe people of the
Stato wanted was a fair election; and,'
whenever uny thief wa9 in office, under
tbe guise of being a Republican, be
should be put out. Tbe people wanted
a fuir election, even if it be by Federal!
In concluding his argument, Carpen?
ter said Congress was iu a predicament'
where it could not stop. Louisiana had'
but one Senator here, aud the Oonstitu-j
tion says she must havo two. Tbe Se-j
nator from New Jersey (Frelicghuysen)
bad said be would not Tote to seat
Finchback, and by that ho" declared
there was no Republican Governmentin|
Louisiana. By seating Pinobback, tbe
Senate would have recognized Kellogg.
By seating McMillan, it would have re?
cognized McEnery. Bat by refusing to
seateitber.it declared there had been,
no election thore. Was it wise to ad-|
jonru this troublesome question into,
the troublesof the Presidential election?,
It was not probable that there would be'
tho same unanimity then that there wasi
hist time, for as he saanned the politi-j
oal horizon, he thought he could see
more than one candidate; and it was not
probable that the vote of Louisiana!
might change the whole thing. The
question should be settled now, und put
out of tbe way, as it was neither wise
nor prudent to adjourn it. He had no
personal feeling in the matter, his re?
lation with Kellogg having been of tbe
most friendly character; but he wanted
the Congress of the United States to do
its duty, and order an honest election,
so tbut the people could have their
Freliugbuyscu said he desired to speak
on tho subject, but yielded to Cameron,
who moved that the Senate prooecd with
the consideration of the centennial bill.
Thnrman said he also desired to speak
on Louisiana affairs, aud hoped the cen?
tennial would go over till to-norrow.
Conkliug said Senator Cameron was
anxious to get nway, und it was due him
to take up and dispose of tho centennial
bill, to-day, if possible. Cameron's mo?
tion to take up the eeuteuui.il wus agreed
to. A motion was made to refer it to
the Committee on Appropriations.
Thurmuu spoke against referring the
bill, and said if it went to tbut commit?
tee, the understanding would be tbat
there should be an appropriation for tbe
celebratiou, and this be opposed, on the
ground that Congress bud no power,
under the Con.-t is alien, to vote money
for such purposes.
