t
. SPEECH OF OYV. McENERY.
At the large meeting of tax-payers
held in Monroe on the 19th inst., Gov.
McEnery spoke about 21 hours. We
can only give a short synopsis of his
sabech.
The Governor said that he had not
come among the people to indulge in
the flights of fancy, or to deal with the
flowers of rhetoric, but to speak plainly
-to state the practical means of pre
serving constitutional rights and Amer
clan freedom. The contest in Louisi
ana is not localized. A sentiment of
patriotism is stretching over the land,
and the Louisiana contest is becoming
national in its character. Men, irre
spective of party, are watching with
interest our actions here. Democrats
and Republicans are looking at the
Issue as being above party strife and
party bilkerings. They feel that if free
government is stricken down in Louis
iana that it is only a question of time
when an imperial despotism will
throttle the liberties of the people eve
rywhere. Hence, he had the most
hopeful view of our case. We are con
tending for a great principle-whether
free government and republican insti
tutions should be perpetuated, and
every citizen in the American Union
was alike interested in the result.
The history of the Louisiana case was
given in detail. After a fair election
--probably fairer than in many of the
States of the Union-it was shown by
the officials records in his possession
that he had been elected by more than
10,000 majority. The victory of the
Fusionists was acknowledged every
where; by every intelligent voter in
the State; by the universal sentiment
of the country, and the result given
publicity everywhere as an acknowl
edged fact. Even Kellogg had ac
knowledged it and was seeking new
avenues of preferment for admission to
the U. S. Senate by bringing about a
union of opposing elements in the Fu
sion Legislature, but in this he most
Ignomineously failed. A plan was de
vised to defraud the people out of the
result of the election. Kellogg, Beck
with, Casey and others organized the
conspiracy against the government of
Louisiana at the Custom House. The
official returns had 'shown that lie was
elected, and to get over this fact puz
zled the conspirators. Kellogg at last
said: ,"I have it. We have a U. S.
Judge who is a partisan, who is with
us. He will give us relief on any show
ing." A bill In equity was filed osten
sibly for the purpose of perpetuating
testimony to be used in some future
action which Kellogg alleged he inten
ded to bring. The whole machinery
was put in motion, and at the dead
hour of night, after Durell had reeled
home from his cups, from a feast to
which the conspirators had invited
him, in his chamber, his mind and
body paralyzed and unfitted by intox
ication, by one stroke of his pen, at
tempted to sweep away the liberties oi
the people of the State of Louisiana; to
degrade the proud State; to drag her
down, and place her people under the
Iron heel of a stranger, a usurper. Tl'his
act is without a parallel in history ; is
unequalled by any act of the notorious
Jeflries, vhose name has come down
to us for more than a century loa~nded
with infamy.
Heo was not afraid of investigation :
he courted it. Kellogg had alleged
fraud in the election. He had Iropo.'d
togo into the court of his own selection
--before Durell, whoseo partizanship and
corruption was well known to the
whole country-and :'y this question
of fraud, in every parish and precinct.
Kellogg had shrunk from the investi
gation, choosing rallier to rest his
claims upon force, Federal power and
perjury. What was the irresistible
enclusion? That the a:llegations were
untrue, and lhe knew he would stand
convicted before the American people
of having committed wilful ,perjury.
He was not afraid of an investigation,
and he had great faith in the future
action of the Congress of the United
SLates and believed that they would do
the people of Louisiana full justice.- I
The people of Louisiana, the people
of the United States, and the public i
press generally, had stamped the Kel
logg government as infamnous, ats an I
usurpation existing without the shadow
of right, aud only held together by
Federal power and support. The com
mittee of the U. 8. Senate had plro- 1
nounced his government a fraud and a
usurpation, and only upheld by Federal
Re said he was not an agitator. He
was working for the interest of the peo
ple. As for himself, if he thought that
there had been fraud in the election,
that the ballot-boxes had been so ma
nipulated in his favor as to elevate him
Into office, that the people had been
swindled out of the result of the elec
tion, he would not contend for the posi
tion, even though it were the high
position of Governor of the State of
Louisiana. He would not be a party
to any fraud upon the rights of the
people. He was in receipt of commu
nications daily from all sections of the
country, from people of every color,
and from representative men every
where,appealing to him to be firm,to the
people of Louisiana to be firm, and that
all would yet be right, and Louisiana
would yet have the government of her
choice. Hence, the necessity of the
people to be united; to be firm and
confident, and in no way to recognize
the Kellogg government, but to resist
it by all constitutional and legal means.
We are engaged in a great moral battle
-probably the last that may be fought
for American freedom-and if we suc
ceed, to Louisiana would belong the
glory of having been the battle ground
and it will redound to her everlasting
glory. He was conscious that in this
contest he was upheld by the universal
public sentiment of the country, and he
relied upon the intelligence and virtue
of the people of other parts of United
States. to do Louisiana justice, to hear
her cries of distress, and to release her
from the polution which was upon her.
He referred to the riotin Grant
parish,and stated that it was the direct
result of the usurpation of Kellogg. In
less time than three weeks four sheriffs
had been appointed in that parish. The
rioters were permitted to hold violent
possession of the parish site and Kellogg.
was powerless to afford reliet. Had lihe
been permitted to exercise the functions ;
of his office, supported and upheltd by I
the people, the riot would have been
stopped in its-incipiency. In fact, there
would have been no riot--would have
been none in the State. White and
colored citizens would have been in
amicable relations everywhere, and no
such thing as bloodshed would have
been known in the State.
Tlhe opposition to the Kellogg gov
ernment is not because li he is a Itepubli
can-not because he is personally ob
noxious-but because his government
is not the government of the people;
it is in opposition to the popular will;
was never elected, and was never pro
r nounced so by y ny legally constituted
authority. It had been so characterized
everywhere, and all of its pretensions
rested upon force, fraud and perjury,
and as such is an insult, an indignity,
to the people of thisState,and an insult
to the whole American people. It is a
pure and unadulterated usurpation.
The citizens of the parish of Ouachita
had assembled here to-day to place
themselves in unison with the people
of other portions of the State to devise
some means of peaceably and legally
I resisting this foul usurpation; to devise
I somIIe meanits of preserving themselves
iand their posterity from degradation.
i The object of the Association of Tax
I Payers had been explained to them.
Imagine all the tax-payers of this parish
united firnlly and solidly to resist the
payment of taxes to the Kellogg col
lectors; and now inllagine the whole
r people of tihe State united, what will
Mr. Kellogg do . Ilis government will
s go down in thirty days. There is to
be a grand central coluncil in the city
of New Orleanls, with a council in each
a parish, governed by such rules and reg
I ulationts as will suit their several local
ities. The courts will . be resorted to,
and able counlsel will assist you, free of
ost. The attorlleys are always found
on the side of right, in great political
contests, when the lilrtihs of thi !,o
plc are involved. It i. a dti.tig ui-hito

length the means of resisting the pay

cidtd thot aln excuttive officer attempt
ing to excercise authority under a gov- I
ernment undertook to guarantee the
authority of the government underl
which lie actedl. iIence, K:llogg's ap
pointecs wore ttreslpasser.
It had been said tlhat the Kellogg
governurmtent wasa adt- fefo goverllnl.ent.
That was a- legal, a cnistitutional ab
surdity. Tile government of the United
States in treating wvith foreign govern
inents, only looked to th :authlorities
in power, and have always treated with
a de facto government without going
into the inquiry of the de jure govern
ment. The States of the American
Union are not foreign States, and to
tate that one of them has a de facto
government is to state that she is out of
the Union-in hostility to the general
government. The Constitution of the
United States guarantees to every State
a government republican in form, and
any de facto government in opposition
to the dejure government is a farce and
a fraud in direct hostility to the general
government. It does not rest for its
authority upon the will of the people,
and this is the only government inl this
Union that the Constitution of the
United States recognises. Ie was the
de jure, the rightful Governor of the
State, having been legally elected and
so declared by competent authority.
The Governor in conclusion made a
strong and eloquent appeal to the peo
ple, and said that his course was mark
ed out; he knew he was right and he
would not abandon the contest until
it was finally determined that free
government had to give way to force.
SHe was prepared to risk everything in
the contest-life, liberty and property
-and would do his part if the people
would do theirs.
He concluded his remarks amid loud
and prolonged applause, and the intel
ligent portion and the tax-paying por
tion of this parish recognize him as the
only Governor of the State of Louisiana
and as such are prepared to sustain him.
SENTIMENT IN JACKSON AND ILICH
LAND PAItISIIES.
The TELEGIRAPHI is unable to tin
space for the lenghty procoedings of the
mass meetings in Jackson and lich
land parishes which it has been request
ed to publish. As indicative of the
feeling in these two parishes, however,
we produce the following resolutions
adopted among others equally as strong,
remarking that at both meetings there
was a large number of lending citizens
of the two parishes and that the pro
ceedings were responsive of the views
only of the very best men:
RIESOLUTIONS Of JACKSON.
Resolved, That we, the citizens of the
parish of Jackson, do solemnly protest,
in the name of American liberty, and
our time-honored institutions, against
the usurping government attempted to
be forced on us at the point of the bay
onet.
" Resolved, That we will resist by all
means in our power the usurping gov
ernment headed by ,V. P. Kellogg,
and will yield obedience thereto, only
when forced to do so bysuperior power.
Resolved, That we will pay no taxes
whatever to the usurping governmeut,
and that we do now publicly denounce
any nman as an enemy to the liberties
of the people, and the best interests of
the State, who will attempt to collect
from our down-trodden and oppressed
people, taxes to support and foster upon
us a usurping government.
"RESOLUTIONS OF RtIC'ILAND.
Resolved, That we stand by our Con
stitutional rights, our legislative and
executive bodies in maintain ing them.
Reolvecd, That we will not yield obe
dience in any respect to t he Kellogg gov
ernment, until the contest between the
two rival governments be finally deci
ded by the lawful authorities, believing
that any revenue placed at the disposal
of the Kellogg Government would be
embezzled andi fraudulently used to the
prejudice of all good interests to the
State of Louisiana.
Re'solred, That we urge uponlo l the good
people of Louisiana, calm and discreet,
but firm and determlined action, in the
support of our rights.
Resolrcd, That wo urge upon all men
to abstain froni violence and give their
in iflune and action to thile preservation
of pea:ce and harmony, believing that
the great triumph of constitutional
rights, as it stands emblazoned upon
the results of the last November (elec
tion, aided by the resistless dlcianiil.

varnultlisi the :assimnilated claim,; of

The Assassination of General Hindmlani
at Helena, Ark., in 1868.--Lewis
Vaughu, the Accusedl.
JMEMPIrIS, April 19.-Lewis Vaughn,
alias Frank 13urdett, charged with the
assassination of Gen. Hindman at IHel
ena, Ark., the night of September 27,
1868, was brought before Judge lHalsey,
of the Second Circut Court, to-day, on
a write of habeas corpus. J. D. Adams
appeared on behalf of the prisoner;
Judge Chas. W. Adams and Col. Cayce
Young for the prosecution.
Mrs. Mary lindman, widow of the
deceased, was the principal witness.
She identified the prisoner as the man
calling himself Flrank Burdett, claim
ing to be a son of the former Police
Commissioner, and who had written
her several letters asking her to come
to Memphis, and he would reveal the
whole plot of the assassination of her
husband.
On the night of the 15th inst. he came
to her room at the hotel, and told her
in presence of Judge MIangum that the
party who killed Gen. HIindman was
hired to do it by Jhon II. Moore and
Dr. Linthicum, of Helena; that his
motive in disclosing the plot was part- I
ly from conscience, but principally from
revenge, as l)r. Linthliieum had tried to
poison him last summer when he was'
sick; that on the night of the assassina
tion lie and the man who fired the shot,
after loading a double barrelled shot
gun in a blacksmith shop near the Gen
eral's house, went into the yatrd, leav
ing Linthicuma holding the horses out
tcide; salw the General through the win
.dow sitting in a large rocking chair
with his feet on another, smoking his
ipe. illis back was to them, and they
went to the other window, where they
had a view of his side face. When the
gun was fired lie heard her shrieks, and
would have given the world to recall
ten minutes; he then mounted his horse
and nmade his way to Marianna and
thence to Tenlness;ee. Also stated lie
haid a photegraplh of her liouise, and all
the parties conerned. When asked
vwho lired the shot, said l:e would get
Capt. Cleni. Daring, and return in two
hours, and she should know all. IHe
then asked her if she had told any one
in regard to his letters. She had, and
itold lhir she canle near lmakling a con
fident of Linthicunn, and lie exclaimed:
My God, if you had, he would have me
umurdered, lLsLinthicurn had taken him
to Helena to kill Ilindman. The let
ters written by Vaughan were shown;
witness, and identified. (On cross-ex
amination, said Vaughan told Judge
Mangum he did not want money; re
venge was- what lie wanted, and lie
Imeant to have it. Witness was thellc
questioned in regard to the assassina
ation of her husband, and was mnuchi
affected in detailing the bloody work.
She was accompanied by her little son,
who had just gotten out of his father's
lap,when the fatal shot was tired. Chief
of Police Atheey identified the letters
and said Vaughan told him they were
written at the instance of other parties.
S\When asked why lhe did not return to
! see Mrs. liindiau as lie promised Sat
urday night, he said because the police
chased himi when lie went to the Appcal
office to get a letter. tIad known the
prisoner for eight months; first as Flow
ers, and then as Vaughan; had proffered
his services as as detective, when the
safe in the police oflice was robbed, but
lie had .,no confidence in his honesty.
When lie arrested himi last Saturday
Vaughan remarked, ,'you have pulled
mie about these Ilindnmnn letters."
Detective ilarry Crallmner testified to
about the same; had known the prison
er by his differenlt tliases; that when
Vaughan wai arrested, told himl he lhid
written the letters, but was reticent
about the matter.
Mrs. Qutckenbush, of Nashville, tes
tified ashe was the mother of the prison
er, anld hi-i name. was I cis Vatuýiha .
Sevieral otheir viitnlle-s.S were intlroduc

elicited.
Several tldepulsitions were ofiered to
prove prisoner was at swork at the
Sailor's lestt, in-ar ('Cltrksvillc, Te-n., at

ruined, contested the validity ofthlie acti
of the legislature, hlafore the Simprenie I
Court of he Statc, presided over by
that great and good muiii, Joh T. Lutde
ling, of Ounchita. Chief Justice Lode
ling gave his endoreinent to the mon
opoly, whereupon the case went up to
the supreme tribunal, which has prac
tically sustained the decision of the
lower Court, by refusing to take juris
diction of purely State affairs, the Chief
Justice and Associates Field, Bradley
and Swayne dissenting. The point
made by the butchers was that the law
is contrary to the Thirteenth and Four
teenth Amendments of the United
States Constitution, in this, that it
creates involuntary servitude, abridges
the privileges and immunities of citizens
ofthe United States, denies to the plain
tiffs the equal protection of the laws and
deprives them of their property with
out due process of law. The Court de
cided that the State government was
clothed with ample power in the prem
ises and that its action could not be in
validated by the Federal Government.
In settling this question, the interpre
tation of the three new amendments to
the Constitution was involved; and also
the question whether tr these amendments
changed the previously existing rela
tions between the State and Federal
Government. The Court very properly
decided they had not; that the amend
ments must be construed in the light
thrown by our history, on the intention
of the people in adopting them; that
the general purpose of the amendments
was to protect the rights of the freed
men. To this end slavery was abolish
ed by the Thirteenth Amendment. The
servitude so done away with was per
sonal servitude. It was the kind
which would include penal servitude,
if that had not been distinctly excluded.
It-was not and could not be subordina
tion in matters of business and profit
which is not in the province of the
national constitution to regulate, and
which the people did not intend to
bring within the jurisdiction of the na
tional government. To sum up the
decision is that the three amendments
merely relate to the civil and political
status of the African race, guaranteeing
the negro equality, but leaving the
Constitution, in other respects, unchang
oed-or, in other words, leaving the re
lations of the States to the Federal Gov
ernmaent on the old basis, and the gov
ernment of the country in all other
respects precisely the same as if the
Constitutitution had stood as first adopted,
and no negro had ever left his native
soil. -- ies'bgsr If-ertahll.
INEW1 OIILE ANS TELEtGRAMS.
Ns- ORILEANS, April 21.-The
steamer II. L. loge departed Saturday
night with United States troops for
Colfx. A special dispatch announces
the departure of the Kellogg officials
from St. llarys parish. The impression
is gaining ground that the presence of
United States troops will be required
in every parish of the State to enforce
obedience to the Kellogg government.
A special dispatch announces a large
and enthusiastic meeting of property
holders of Ounchita and adjoining
parishes at Monroe Saturday, which
was addressed by Gov. McEnery. The
meeting resolved to pay on taxes to the
Kellogg government.
It appears from correspondence be
tween Actng Secretary of War Robe
son, Gen. McDowell, commanding the
Department of the South, who is now
at New York,and General Emory,com
mannding at New Orleans, that there
was some difflliculty in obtaining trans
portation for two companies of Federal
troops to Grant parish. The regular
boats refused to carry the troops, as it
would ruin their trade. Application
was made to Collector Casey, who had
no neanlles of transportation. Finally
Emory succeeded in chartering a ves
sel for the special service. The corres

the troops are to do when they reach
