who prepared tho Louisiana case for
Oov. Palmer and Judge Trumbull who
went to New Orleans to witness the
couutfugof the votes by tho returning

scntation before the electoral commis

cept the collectorship or the port or New
Orleans is probably correct. Packard
ha frequently asserted that lie could not
consistently accept any office offered
him by Hayes, but his struggle to hold
on to the governorship ot Louisiana has
cost him hi. fortune, and it is asserts J
that he is now a very poor man. When
he entered the campaign last tall ho w as

War between Russia and Turkey Is
now a settled fact. The Czar's mani

The I'.ev. P. Harrison ot the Metho
dist Episcopal church South, stationed
at Atlanta, Georgia, is now in Chicago.
In an interview with a Timrt reporter
Mr. Harrison made the, tollowiiig statc-
l. lent concerning the condition of the
blacks of South:
He urged the necessity for tome
change, the establishment of some social
ties by hleh the decrease of Hie race
coulil be checked, and the nation saved
the curse of a gigantic pauperism. "No
nation, ' Kiiid he, "can have a heavier
curse Hum tin expiring race thrown nit
on its hand. To that condition vill the
black of the south be reduced unless
something is done to stay the waste.
1 need only go back a little wuy to illus
trate the point. Between the btoppuge
ol tke African slave trade, in Isos, and
the outbreak of the- war, in 18D, the
number of blacks In this country
increased 1,000 per cent. In lOS there
wro -JUO.000 negroes in the south. In
1SH) there were 4,000,000. From 1800 to
l!r70 there was a loss or 400,0. Not an
ajgregate loss, but a relative loss. The
increase tell that tar short or what
t should have been In accordance with
the tatlo previously established. The
normal proportion or males over 21
years or age In a population Is 20 per
cent. In Massachusetts, where the pop
ilation is, to all Intents and purposes, all
white, tho proportion or males over '21
years of age is 20 per cent, or the whole.
That Is abnormal ; yet in tho Southern
states, It is found that the males over 21
years ot age constitute from 20 to -10 and
as high as 45 per cent or the population.
Wherever such a state of things Is found
in a country liat U Fettled, and whore
the usual Jaws of civ'zulioii and society
are recognlzed.it is a sign ot decadence

tho necessary care is not
taken of the young the children are not
coming forward; tnat social anu
family ties are lax. U radii
ally the number or children lessens
and tiuuiiy tne nation is caiicu upon
to support a large proportion of the old.
I say the nation, because their main
ti nencc falls upon thu resources ot the
people. Poor houses and charitable in
stitutions tuust increase. It becomes us
of the south to stop this decay ot the
bltcks. It is our interest aud our duty
our interest more clearly than our du
ty. No seiftible man regrets the emanci
pation of the . slaves, and no one wants
slavery re-established. The system was
a great curse to the master. Hut we
must take care of these people. He
have got to be with them, to have them
about us all the time, to deal with them
in every usual business relation. It will
not do tor us to have half our population
In a stats ol semi-barbarism. We must ed
cae and cleyate them. We want a chance
to do it. It is hard for us to occupy the
position into which the carpet-bagger
lias thrust us as relates to the blacks. It
has been drilled into their minds that so
soon as the federal army is withdrawn,
or so soon as the Republican party loses
control f the government, slavery will
at once resume possession of them. The
matter Is an extremely dangerous and
delicate one. The blacks believe and
trust us in everything except that. Ills
hard that oar words the words of gen
tlemen art outweighed by the malicious
inventions or these men from the north.
But the slacks are so easily alarmed
upon that point that all appeals to their
reason and to their experience or us since
the war is in vain.
Southern Republicans are preparing to
adapt themselves to tho new order or
things with the best grace possible; and
' it is now giren out that the much-talked-
or revolt in the Republican party w ill
not be s rious. The leaders of the party
in the South are reconciling themselves
as fast as possible, and are preparing to
support the administration in the work
of pacification. This change is perhaps
easily accouutcd for. Southern Republi
cans are, as a rule, a class of men who care
nore tor the fat offices at the disposal of
the administration than they do tor the
i rinciples ol the Republican Iparty, 'and
taey would willingly sacrifice tho one to
ojtain the other. They are well aware
that to light the president is to surren
der all claims upon him in the bestowal
ot patronage, aud that the loss of power
to control appointments iu the south
is to them political death. To
this cause perhaps more tlun to
any other may be attributed the haste
w ith which .Southern Republicans arc
preparing to swing into line and londto

have written a letter to Senator Mor

for surrendering to the president aud giv

it isjow probable that when lilaioe and
Morton come to count their forces lor the
flgh; against Hayes, they w ill lind that
the? have been deserted by tho great
mass ol Southern Republicans who in

THE CZAR'S MANIFESTO.
The lollowiug is the text ot the czar's
Our faithful and beloved subjects know
the strong interest we have constantly
lelt In the destinies ot the oppressed
Christian population of Turkey. Our
desire to ameliorate and assuage their
lot has been shared by the whole Russian
nation, which now shows itself ready to
bear tresh sacrifices to alleviate the po
sition ot the Christian iu the Balkan pen
insula. The blood and property ot our
faithful subjects have always been dear
to us, and our whole rei?n
attests our constant soliciting to pre
serve to Russia the benefit ot peace. This
soli-'ituJe never tails to actuate us during
the dplorablc events which occurred iu
iierex'govina, Busnia and Bulgaria.
Our object before all was to effect amel
ioration in thu position of christians in
the Fast by means of pacific negotia
tions, and in concert with the great Ku
ropean powers, our allies and friends,
for to years we have made incessant
eflorts to Induce the ports to ctlect such
reforms as would protect christians in
Bosnia, llerezcgovlna and Bul
garia from the arbitrary mea-ure of local
authorities. The accomplishment ol
these reforms was absolutely stipulated
by Interior engagements contracted by
the porte toward the whole of Lurope.
lOur efforts, supported by diplomatic
representations made In common with
other governments, have not, however,
attained th ir object. The porte has re
mained unshaken in its formal refusal of
any effective guarantee for the security
of 'its Christian subjects, and has rejected
tho conc!u.-ious of the Constantinople
conference. Wishing to essay every pos
sible means of conciliation in order to
persuade the porto, we proposed to the
other cabinets to draw up a
special protocol comprising the
most essential couditions of the Constan
tinople conference, aud to invito the Tur
kish government to adhere to this Inter
nationa! act, which states tho extrume
limits of ourpeacelul demands. But our
expectation was not fulfilled. The porte
did not deter to this unanimous wi-h of
Christian Kurope, and did not adhere to
the conclusions ol tho protocol. Having
exhausted pacific efforts, we are com
pelled by the haughty obstinacy of the
porte to proceed to more deci.lye acts,
leeling that our equity aud our own dig
nity eujoiu it. By her retusal Turkey
places us under the necessity ol having
recourse to arms. Profoundly con
