No party ever before in the history of
this country endeavored to hold on to the
government when the people had given
It notice to quit. A party of "moral

When he was announced at a candidate

Then they predicted his defeat. He a?
elected by over 54,000 majority. Then
they predicted that the delegation from
bis own state would not support him for
the presidency. The delegation was
unanimously instructed lor him, and
unanimously voted lor him. A disas

was the next prediction. He was nomi

defeat was the next prophecy. lie re

two hundred and three electoral votes,

after that the Republicans recovered their

THE II EG BO DEMOCRATIC TORE
Various ingenious Republican writers
ore endeavonng to show that the number
of Republican votes ought to hare been
greater in certain portions ot the south'
era states, because the negro population
is greater than the reported Republican
vote. They assume that the census re
porta tell ti3 exactly what the Republi
can vote is. Their error Is in supposing
that the negroes are unanimously He
publican. The truth is, that the negro
Democratic vote i growing every yesr.
The negro is finding out that his inter
ests are better guarded by his former and
present employers than by carpet-bag
thieves. He I finding out that the south
-rn whites arc honest, and mean to deal
l:urly with him. He is finding out that
the carpet-baggers and the general run of
the Republican politicians in the South
arc thieves. The Frccdman's Savings
Bank failure opened his ryes, and the fie
uncut confiscation ot colored men's prop
erty for taxes stolen ' by the carpet-baggers,
has served to keep them open. The
spectacle of a poor negro going about
with a subscription paper, asking for
small sums to keep his little patch of
ground from bring sold from under him
lor taxes, has been a familiar one in
South Carolina in the past year. The ne
groes know who levy these oppressive
taxes, and who steal them, and they have
ceased to be solid tor the Republican
party. This is what the election ot Wade
Hampton and the electoral vote tor Til
den mean In South Carolina, and what a
Democratic victory In Florida means. As
or Louisiana, that -has been Democratic
for lour years, though it has been counted
Republican. So, when your Republican
friend talks negro census to you, tell him
that the ceusus was taken six years ago
and that fcin.-o that time the color line
Las been broken. a it nhouM bo.

THE IIAVKI.OAT I.OIISJIASA.
The Louisiana correspondent of the
Xew York Trihun tells tho whole story
when he says thal'thc Republican do
not deny that a majority of the votes ac
tually polled arc against them, but they
srt t that uihW i he In w they will be
able to prove that several parishes were
can led by the Democrats by Intimida
tion nnd violence, and that when the
votes from these pari.-hes are rejected, as
they will be legally, Hayes and 1'aekard
will be found to have carried the state."
In other words, history is to be com
pelled to rcicat itnlf. In 172, "a ma
jority of tho votes actually polled" was
gainst the Republicans ; yet the Repub
lican ticket waa counted In. In 174, 'a
majority of the votes actually polled''
was again against It, nnd again it was
counted in. The Independent press of
the north each time denounced this out
rage upon the suQrage ; and the United
States senate, servile as it is, refused to
admit any of the senators elected by the
legislatures that were the creatures t
this shameless fraud. Even Matt Car
penter exposed it. denounced ir, and
made the senate ring with his invectives.
Now this great crime is to be committed
a third time, In order to count in a Re
publican president. The sme machi
nery that has been twice nsed to defeat
the will of the people of Louisiana Is
now lo be used to defeat the will ot the
people of the whole country. Do Mr.
Chandler and Vr. Diaine suppose that
ti j.coplo of ettner section will submit
to it They have elected Mr. Tilden
president, and they expect to see the
office vacated to make room for him at
the time prescribed by the constitution.
Do Mr. Chandler and Mr. Blaine sup-
rose that the great northern common
wealths of New York, Indiana, Connec
ticut and New Jersey will not do all that
they cau legally do to see that their elec
toral votes arc not nullified by fraud at
the south? These gentlemen do r.ot
seem to be satisfied with the thundering
rebuke they got at the polls. Wo warn
them against provoking another. When
tho people say a thing by 400,000 ma
jority and bv 2t'3 electoral votes, they
mean it. '

Before the election, Gov. Chamberlain
demanded troops of the president on the
ground that their presence was neces
sary to a tair election. They were sent
to him, although his request was not ac
companied by any adequate proof of the
statements of violence he made in sup
port of it. The troops were stationed in
every part ot the state where the gover
nor, himself a candidate for re-election,
decided that their presence was necessary.
hat has been the result? A majority
In the state for Tiluen and Hampton,
which, though not large, Is a preat gain
on the former large Republican majori
ties. The election was peaceful. N'o
one has asserted the contrary, nnd the
Republicans dare not assert it, because
their own soldiers were on the ground
rue election was lair and lionett. No
one has asserted tho contrary, nnd the
Republicans dare not aert it, because
their owu loic prevents. They asked
for soldiers that they iiiirlir lure a mil
election ; they have had the soldiers and a
fair election. Now they cannot question
the result, because all the precautions
wmcn tncy tieinanueii, unjustmable as
they were, were take. The state is for
Tilden by a vote cat peaceably under
the very shadow of Federal bayonets.
Gov. Chamberlain is "howt with his own
petard." When he ma lo the call for
troop he did not reflect that ho was
making it impossible to set up the cry of
fraud, should the result be unfavorable,
which we hear now in Florida and Louis
iana. Chamberlain has outwitted Cham
berlain, and the vote which was cast
against Chamberlain in the way that
Chamberlain directed must be counted
against Chamberlain, though Chamber
lain is crushed thereby. Gov. Chamber
lain has put Gov. Tilden election be
yond the reach ot question.
Tut ring were in favor ( Gov.
Hayes' election before his defeat, and
they are now la favor of counting him In
in spite ot it. Does any one suppose that
there is a corrupt organization In the
country that is not working and waiting
for Gov. Hayes' election by count. In the
taceof Lis defeat by ballot 't Tho rings
know that Gov. Tildcn's accession lo the
presidency means political death to
them, and they, having failed to prevent
It by lair means, will do their best with

Ge,itUi,H : We are In receipt of your
answer to our letter or the 14th Inst., in
which you iulorui us of your determina
lion not to coufer with us tor the purpose
of exerting sueh inilucnee as wo may
posM-is In behalf of such a canvass of the
votes actually ca,t at the election lu Lou.
Uiana as by lu fairness and lmnarthilitv
shall command tho acquiescence and re
siHJCt ot ill parties. We sincerely regret
this fullure of an attempt to secure the co
operation of the citizens from other States
lu furtherance of the purpose which as we
suppoed had brought the m hither at this
juncture. We regret it all the more be
cause your refusal to confer and co-opc
rate with us appears to be based upou a
serious misapprehension of the language
no leas than of tho spirit of our commuLU
cation. It can hardly Lave escaped vour
1 "jtl thut our statement of the rv?ult to
be attained by the co-operative action
which wo (ought to bring about was a
simple reproduction of the language of
fresldent Grant, at whose rrqnesl we un
derstood you were here. In Lis recent
order to General Sherman, that language
was deliberately used, no doubt. In view
of I he fact, about which as wo eoncclve
there can be no dispute, that tho lirst and
most essential requisite to an honest and
Ju't declaration or the recent election In
Louisiana Is a fair and Impartial canvas?
of the votes actually cast, and it seems to
ns that yon do the president great injus
tice! in supposing that In speaking of the
'votes actually cast' lie meant to include
otcs Illegally east, as you e-ertainly elous
Injustice by the imputation ot a desire to
Insist upon such a narrow aud vicious In
tetpretation. In our judgment, the ex
pression "votes actually castv necessarily
designates votes legally cast, and a-s a
csnsequence, of such vote's only did we
desire to secure a fair and impartial can
vass. We beg leave to say, therefor, that
vou are mistaken in the belief that we
sought uuduly to narrow the basis on
which we invited your co-operative ac
tion, and you ure no less in error In at
tributing to ns a purpose to interfere with
the legnl arthorities of the State in tho
discharge ot their duties, to claim rights
and to arrogate to ourselves powers which
we do not possess. In writing our let
ter, we were fully aware that both the
organization ami otior wheitierjudlci.il
or ministerial, oi the returning board ot
Louisiana, were beyond any authoritative
control from without, and that it would
be the height of arrogance and folly to
attempt to alter the laws ot a state ot
which we are not citizens, or to obtrude
our interpretation of these laws upon
those whose duty it is to administer them;
but we had supposed ; nevertheless, that
there was au influence which might be
rightfully exerted, even by citizen of this
republic wbo are strangers in this state,
and we had taken it for granted that your
presence here In response to the sugges
tion of the president was a recognition of
this tact. We bad supposed that it was
not improper for as to remind tho authori
ties or this state, by our mere presence at
least, that there are certain rules of fair
ness and justice which underlie all con
stitutions and laws, and upon whose ob
servance must depend the acquiescence of
the people of all parties in the declared re
sult of the Louisiana election rules, such as
these : That no one ought to be iudge
in his own case ; that the decision of any
contest ought not to depend upon the
mere arbitrament of one of the parties
thereto; that, before such a decision is
made, both parties ought to be fully nnd
fairly heard ; that all questions of law
ought to be decided in conformity with
its established general principles, and all
questions ot fact upon evidence duly pre
sented and weighed under the rules
which are of universal recognition in all
the states of this Union ; that the trial of
all causes involving public interests, at
least, ought to be public, and that all the
proceedings resorted to for the purpose
ot determining the issues in the present
electoral contest ought by their manifest
Impartiality to disarm the suspicion that
the forms of law have been perverted
into internments lor the violation ot its
spirit. In this connection wo may be
permitted to observe that while undoubt
edly, as you soy, a sedulous inculcation
and cultivation of the habit of obedience
to the forms of law are vital to the preser
vation of constitutional liberty, it is not
less imjwrtaiit that a refusal to yield
such obedience be not provoked by using
thec form as means for subverting the
very ends for which they were designed.
Without undertaking to question the
sincerity of the belie f. which you arc at
pains to express, that you know of no
reason to doubt that the Louisiana re
turning board will make a perfectly hon
est and just declaration of the result of
the recent election in Louisiana, we deem
it not improper to remind you that the
presence in this cily of 60 many citizens
from all parts of the Union ut this mo
ment seems to be evidence of a widely
prevalent distrust of the action of the
board, and that such distrust has this
foundation at least, that the constitution
of the board has not been changed since
the returns was et aside by a congres
sional committee, of which the Republi
can candidate for the vice-presidency was
a member. This distrust Is not unnat
ural in view of the fact that, as we under
stand, one ot the members of the return
ing board is a candidate voted for at the
recent election ; another the holder of an
office of profit and trust by appointment
ot the present executive of tho national
government, while ull tho members of
the board are believed to be In affiliation
with but one of the parties to the present
political contest. In view of all this, it
is hardly necessary to add that the terms
of our letter were not designed to pre
judge the question whether the functions
ot the returning board were judicial, or
ministerial, or both, but simply to Invite
you to see with us that, whatever may be
the character of these functions, they are
openly, fairly and honestly discharged.
And while we thus refrain from any at
tempt at stating or constructor the laws
ol Louisiana, we deem it equally irrele
vant to thesubirct ot our correspondence
with you to allude to the duties devolv
ing upon ofllcers other that) the constitu.
cuts of the Louisiana returning board
Under the laws and constitution of the
United States, whether, as you observe
by the way of Illustration, under the con
stitution the president ot the senate both
counts and deeurcs the voles of the elec
tors of the several states, hU duty leliig
purely ministerial, and not subject to the
control cf congress, or whether, as haa
Deen the practice Inaugurated
oy men, some of whom had
been among the framers of the, constitu
tion, the votes are to be counted under
the direction and control of the bouse ol
representatives and senate, ie a ouestion
upon the discussion f which we deem It
no part of our duty to enter.
In couclubion permit us to say tliat uot.
with.tan dlug your refusal to co-operate,
we still cherish the bone that the retun
tog toarJ, warned by t!iC history vf the
past, and conscious that iT acllonj arc
being observed by the whole nation, atM
discharge its delicate duty with such cir
cumspection, fairness and impartiality as
will giro satisfaction to the American peo
ple. To this end we will continue to la
bor. Should different result follow the
action of the board, we shall have the sat
isfaction of knowing that while you have
taken the responsibility of re-fusing to act
with us, wo have done all in our power to
avert the consequence which may' fol
low. Very respectfully.

New Orleans, Nov. 13. At 12 o'clock
there wfs quite a gathering at the room
of tho returning board. Messrs. Casan

There were a number of Republicans

of the absence of Me?rs. Anderson and
The board met at 12:30, and authorized
the Sergeant at-Arms to procure a room
for the meeting ot the board.

said there were a good many distin

which were adopted without dissent, and
orelered spread opon the miuutes.
The sevrotivry of the boar J reporte J
that electiou returns Irom elilrty-flve
parishes bad been tiled with him. There
are yet returns from thirty-six parishes
The question was raided as to whether
the board could begin the compilation
and canvn until all of tin1 returns had
been received. It was determined, how
ever, to commence on Monday, the 20ih
Inst., nnd to Utke up tho parishes cither
alphabetically er by coiign--ioiiaI dis
tricts. Col. Zuchuric, chairman of the Demo
cratic committee; on elect ions and re
turns, requested to know whether the
presence ot counsel representing Demo
cratic candidates would be allowed dur
ing the deliberation of the board.
The president replied that only in
cases where deputed points arose would
counsel for both parties be called in. He
added that counsel would be pe rmitted
to inspect tho returns when they were
opened in order to sec whether they had
been tampered with.
Col. Zacliarie, of counse l for the Dem
ocratic candidates, tiled a plea against
the constitution of the board, and a pro
test against certain action.
Tbe follow ing grounds were set forth :
1. By rection 2 article 04, 1872, creating
the hoard of returning officers, there is
no term fixed for the teiniro of ollice ;
and, by the sime section, it is provided
that, In case of any vacancy by death,
resignation, or otherwise, by either of
tbe board, then the vacancy shall be filled
by the residue of the board, thus creat
ing a board with the power of perpetuat
ing hselt Indefinitely, and conferring
power in certain contingencies uon a
singlu persou; that raid board Is author
ized to canvass and return as elected
members of the lcglslattue, and said
members are alone authorized to partici
pate in the organization of either branch
of the legislature and said lrgirthiture so
constituted under article -IS, title; 'i of the
onstitutiou of tho ttato of Louisiana,
shall examine and count tho the votes lor
governor and lieutenant governor ; the
direct and immediate tllect of all ot
which U to place power lu tho hands of
nve persons, or ultimately In one person
and his appointees lor ull time, to deter
mine of what persons fchall be constituted
tho executive and legislative branch of
the state government ; that said act in
said respect is In direct conflict with the
constitution ol tho United States and of
tne state of Louisiana as creating u gov
ernment not Republican In form or eduir
acter. 2. By the act under whieh suid hoard
claims to proceed, the said board is vested
with powers Judicial in their character,
nd In that respect the act is In conflict
with article 01 ot the constitution ot tho
state of LouUiima.
3. That If the constitutionality of tho
law were estubllahed beyond question,
we agulu object, and protest and except
to the manner In which the present act
