'rldy Morals;, January llh, 1877.
The Situation la Louisiana.
Poor down trodden Louisiana the
home of the oppressed but of the brave
at labt, after exhausting all peaceful rem
edies, about to throw off the shackles
which have so lou mauackled her.
Gov. 2sichols, the Democratic Govern
or, has been inaugurated amidst the
wildest enthusiasm, in the open air, with
his breast bare to the assassin's ball if
such a man could be found who would
dare commit such a deed while Pack
ard, mean, low and villianous, who
proves the truth of the divioe assevera
tion, that the wicked llee when no man
pursues, was inaugurated in the State
House behind barricades and the brist
ling bayonets of the United Htates sold
iers. Both parties organized Legislas
turee. The Democrats captured the prin
cipal 'State offices, organized a 'Supreme
Court, and the Sta'e militia and police
and with the determination of despair,
they have preserved and presented an
uubrokeu frout; on each man's Counte
nance is writteu that determination and
will which only belongs to the cause of
those who have right on their side.
Grant has thus far not formally recog
nized either party as being Gover.ior,
and proposes to withhold bis decision uus
til the investigating committed have made
Forbearance having ceased to be a vir
tue with the noble people of Louisiana,
they are determined to carry out the will
of the people as clearly expressed at the
balletbox, or die in the attempt pre
ferring a military government to one
iorced upon them by fraud and corrup
tion. These heroic people have bo rue
the tyranny of thieves and vampires too
long already, and the whole-country will
rejoice to see them free themselves,
though it i j done by force.
Many important bills have been intro
duced by members this week, looking to
the interest of the people at large and to
a proper administration of the laws. The
preservation of the State credit is meet
ing with prompt attention, aud it is
-hoped that some law will be passed mu
tually satisfactory to the State aud its
'J he election of United States Senator
for the short term, has occupied most of
the time, and has been the all-absorbing
subject. They have had seventy-five bal
Jots without effecting an electiou. This
ca the greatest number of ballots ever cast
for United States Keuator in the State.
Mr. Key was once withdrawn, bat on yes
terday he received quite a handsome vote.
J udge Turuey's name has bceu withdrawn.
Senator Cooper, the ouly Democrat ou
the Senate Committee to investigate af
fairs in Florida, will make a minority re
port to the Senate, bued upon the facts
bs he found them in Florida. Senator
Cooper's legal ability aud his untiling en
ergy, which he has no doubt brought to
bear in this investigation, will uidke such
a scathing report of Republican iniqui
ties and fraud in the late electiou in that
State, that will put to foil the partisan re
port of the majority. Their report will
be as a dead letter, but his will be geners
ally accepted by the people of all parties,
dor it is too well established a fact that
JJr. Cooper cannot be iniliieuced by any
save pure motives. His almost holy rev
erence for the Coustitutiou aud the law,
will make him rise above petty party
i'eeliug. aud a true aud honest report
based upon the facts, may be expected
tither CougrefeS possesses (as Mr. Liu
colu.so explicitly asserted) complete pow
er over the couuting of the Presidents
votes, which ot course includes complete
lower to ascertain aud determine what
are aud what are not votes, or Congress
does not possess such power. If Con
cress possesses such power, then it is i
power exclusively iu Congress; for the
Coustitutiou has not vested the came

organs of the government it creates

ii too well established and too generally
UuJerstood to require any statement of its
reason. It this be so, and there can be
110 denial of it, then the question arises,
Vrill the people prove themselves supes
rior to one man. who proposes to use the
exalted position to which he has been el'
evated, for base aud partisan purposes?
The duties of a Republican government
are the preservation of civil liberty, the
protection of public ana private proper
ty, and a wholesome administration ot
the laws with the least possible expeuse
nd delay; and whenever a government
forgets its duty in these respects, its pers
jnincncy from that moment is eudatiger
e 1. As this oannot be denied, we are to
day upon a volcauoe which is ready to
Lurst forth at any momeut, and sweep our
land with civil war, aud all its attendant
horrors. How to evade this is a question
now agitatiug the patriots of both the
great political parties. "We vainly hoped
ill f rst that there was enough of the leaT-
n of patriotism in the liepublicau party
to make some of its more liberal uicin
Kts rise above party prejudice aud pas
sion, but we have beeu inistakeu. The
more the conspiracy is probed the more
determined we find the leaders to act up
on their past policy, to rule or ruin. As
the forced 'inauguration of Mr. Hayes
over all law and precedent seems to be a
foreuoue conclusion, then the question
aris28,'will the quiet aud tame subiuis
eion of the Democrats efl'cct anything?
Will war be avoided? Will the ceneral
depression in the business marts be re
lieved? Will the grave doubts of the per
rnaneuey of our government be removed?
Vi'e thiuk not, for a party which is so de
has-) as to inaugurate its President, after
he has been proven to have been de'eated,
will stop at nothing, but will go ou until
the people will be forced to rise in their
might and throw off the yoke, which will
be placed on them by submission now.
Tyrants have no generosity nor gratitude,
and are ouly deterred from going lo ex
treme measures by fear. And submis
sion at th'.s crisis will ouly encourage the
conspirators to go further. The conspi
racy must be crushed at its very fountain
3j"ad, even though the people have to re
e.irt to arms. Let all peaceful measures
Xo first exhausted; let tbere be a con
vention of all liberty loving people of all
jiarties iu Washington next month, and
lt there be such an outpouring that will
u ake Grant, Chandler & Co., quake, and
t ? forced by fear to do right, and if this
d 'cs not succeed, then let the curse- which
1) py have called down upon them follow,
ll the liberty which our forelathers fought
lo wrest from the tyrants, who were far
m re generous than the Radicals are now,
w.is worth fightinc for then, it is worth u
t tingle now. Let us inaugurate Mr

Son. W. C. Wfcitthorne.
On the 70th ballot yesterday Mr. Stokes
put the name of Hon. W. C. Whitthorne,
of Maury couuly, in nomination. He re
ceived a good vote ou the ballots taken
thereafter. The .Legislature, it seems,
have grown tired, and have taken up Gen.
Whitthorne so as to effect an election.
There is no man in the State who would
fill the position of Souator with more
honor to the State and more credit to
himself, than Gen, Whitthorne. For the
last six years he has been in the Nation
al councils; and his record there as an
able statesman, has given him a world
wide reputation The pres3 throughout
the land speak of him in the highest
terms, and the Democracy throughout
the Union would herald his election to
to this high position with pleasure. He
belongs not to his district and State alone,
but to the country at large, and he should
be rewarded for his unflinching devotion
to auty. We could say more on this sub
ject, but Gen. Whitthorne is too well
known to need commendation at onr
hands. We heartily hop that he will be
elected to-day, and honestly believe that
he will. With Whitthorne and Harris
i.i the Senate, Tennessee will have the
ablest representation in the Senate of
any State in the Union.
The Celebration of the New Orleans Anni
versary in Washington.
SPEECH OF HESKY WATBRSON.
Henry Waterson was then introduced.
He said that iu his judgment the danger
was real and continued:
Tbere can be satety. nowhere, least ol
all in the national capital, when the
President of the United States, the Sec
retary of War and the Secretary ol
the interior, the two most influential
members of the majority in the Senate
aud the General of the Army are commit1
ted in advance of an undetermined Pres
idential election to any fixed partisan
policy. But when these organize them
selves into a corporation; when they sur
round themselves with troops; when they
use the power lodged with them as a su
preme trust to secure devices and pretexts
tor its perpetuation, and, thus equipped,
when they boldly proclaim their purpose
aud threaten all, friend and foe alike,
who refuse to acquiese, they justify the
ascription of conspiracy laid at their door,
aud furnisb cause for misgiving iu the'
bravest heart. 1 sny misgtviug, but not
lear. Civil liberty cannot be wrested
from the American people at all, either
with or without a tight. They are pa
tient aud lawabiding; they will exhaust
the peaceful agencies placed by God, na
ture and the Constitution of their coun
try in their hands, but they will not sub
mit to usurpation, and, if it should be
come necessary that they should have a
leader, another Jackson stauds ready to
take his life in his baud.and make their
cause his own. 1 trust that no such iner
geucy will arise, but the way to .prevent
it is, to prepare for it. My hope is that
conservatism enough, patriotism enough
will be found in the Senate to dsfeat the
scheme of extreme men. 1 expect to
see here on the day the vote is to be coun
ted 100,000 unarmed citizens exercising
iu their persons the freeman's right of pe
tition, and giving tue honest Itepuoli
cans of both Houses of Congress two
guarantees, one that the people wantonly
what is right, the other that they will
accept nothing that is wrong. In other
words, the Presidential vote shall le
counted precisely as it it always has been,
aud not by the President of the Senate,
who has no power whatever except to
open the certificates. f Mr. Hayes has
a majority, he is the lawful paesideut. ll
neither Mr. Hayes nor Mr. Tilden have a
nmj ority then the House elects. But it
Mr. T'deu has a majority, then and
lhis as ''Old Hickory'' would put it and
mean it by the Eternal he shall be in
augurated. There is no more to be said
on the subject. It is in every way free
Iroui complexity. Compromise is cer
tainly out of the question. We have
bad, or we have not had, au election, iu
either event the Constitution is plain, aud
it must be maintained to the letter.
The Voice of the People.
The voice of the people has made it
self heard. The great meeting in Wash
ington, Columbus and Jndianapolis prove
that the Udmocratic and Iudepeude'4
masses are determined not to abate a
jot or tittle of their just demands. From
the morning alter tue election, wnen ice
corrupt design of the Republican leaders
to count in Hayes was fully formed, until
now, they have r.elied on the acquiescence
of Hie people in their acts. ihey trusted
to their submission to any wrong rather
than bring on a struggle. They believe
that the men whose fathers fought for the
principle of representation with taxation,
would tamely allow a corrupt Adminis
tration to wrest from them the right to
choose their own rulers" By this tune
thev have learned their mistake. Tbe
people have kept the peace, and propose
to Keen it. out oecaune tney nave oeeu
silent they have been by no means iudif-
tereut or unwatchtul. Ihey have pre
served throughout an unbroken front, and
havi8 not yielded a singla inch to the lie
nublicane. .On the contrary, all the
cuius are on the side ci' the Democrats
The number of Republicans who concede
lilden s election is growing every day,
and the time is not far distant wnen
they will he heard from, while the Dem
ocrats are showing every day a more res
olute determination to stand lit) lor tneir
rights. They are not ashamed to meet in
public, discuss the situation, and de
nounce the plot to uianafacture a Presi
dent. Do tbe Republicans n:eef They
dare not, for they know that the tirst step
towards a public expression of opinion
or au organization to support Mr. Hayes'
claims would disclose the tact that a large
proportion of their own party are against
them in this matter. To sound the call
to meet would only give the clonal Jor the
fatal division to show itself. How reso-
ute aud how fired with patriotic zeal the
Democratic masses are, the meetings of
he Mh of January attest. Ihey have
ouly to preserve this indexible attitude,
aud the contemplated outrage on the
people will be frustrated once and lor

The boss conspirator is now on the rag

suffice to give the couutry an idea of the

A Card to the Public
For many years we have made two
medicines suited to the ailments of a vast
class ot sufferers. Thousands of cures
have been made by them, and, in fact,
the word failure could not be coupled
.with them. But within the last two years
counterfeits of our medicines have sprung
up, dangerous in their close imitation of
our Trade Mark. To secure the people
we have placed upon each genuine box
of Hellowav's Ointment the fac simile of
the signature of our agent, Mr. Jos, Hay-
To counterfeit is lelony. we
Chandler before it. Little dreaming the
committee had the edge on him, he came,
and swaggered into tie room with the
brazuu etlrontery of a harlot.He was ques
tioued generally at first, and gave evas
ive answers as to the orders issued- by
him to his associate thieves in the South
ern Staffs to count Hayes in. Then he
was confronted with the following tele
grams, which smote him with the force of
an electric shock:
"NEW Vohk. Nov. 8, 1H76. To Gov. L. M.
Steams, Tallahassee, Florida: Hold Florida
for Hayes and Wheeler. Money and troops
will be sent you."
When Zach was confrontedwith the in
disputable evidence of his conspiracy he
toned down to the level of au ordinary
mortal. Knot had him on the crucible,
and he proposed to keep him there.
"Did you send this telegram to Gov.
Stearns? 'he was asked. To which here
plied that he thought he might have done
so; that he had sent several telegrams to
Next came the question: "Did you do
it ot your own motion, or at the sugges
tion oi somebody else''' This question
he declined to auswer, and claimed that
immunity which should be accorded ou
accouut of being a Cabinet officer. The
committee informed Mr. Chandler that
he held the dual position of Cabinet Min
ister and Chairman of tbe National Re
publican Committee; that his official acts
as a Cabinet Minister would not be in
quired into, but that so far as the dis
patches which were dated in .New York,
auU ra bi' wpacrty" as - chairman, of a
campaign committee, he had no privil
ege he could claim. He still refused to
auswer the interrogation, when the com
mittee excused him at bis own request
until Wednesday next for deliberation.
The examination of Chaudler lasted
an hour. He was considerably embar
rassed and surprised at the hot triral the
committee had Btruck. The committee
had proof positive iu its hands being
messages over his own signature that
he advised the manipulation of the bal
lots iu the disputed States, aud provided a
corruption fund for the purpose. Mr.
Chandler was not shown all the proof in
the possession of the committee, nor does
he know how it was secured, aud whetli

it is inferred that the two branches of
Congress will each be tepresehied ou it

but this ie only a maittr oi inference.
On inquiry of the members of the two
committees to-night, it is learned that all
of them pledged themselves not to speaa

J be liepublicans object steuuously to
tbe proposition of the Democrats for oue
hundred thousand citizens to assemble in
Washington on the llthof February. AVc
have never heard that there was any ob
jectiou in a popular government to the
people quietly and peaceably assembling
at the seat ot government. It is tlieir
government in theory at least, although
in practice the stockholders have been
narrowed to a very close limited corpora1-
tiou. J he right ol petition is one ol the
most generally admitted rights ot the
American citizen. It is regarded as oue of
the main stays ol free government. If
every man in the United States choose
to bear his own petition and make known
his own grievances and his own views as
to the proper remedy to be applied, who
shall say, na? Those who o'lject arj
the coiiipirators who are proposiug to us
urp the Government. Tbey are those
who have no respect for and paj' no heed
to the popular will. They dispise the
people and fear the expression of popu
lar opinion. Iu the wave of popular
oppiuion washing the steps ot the Capitol
and surging about the halls of Coogress,
the' see the destruction of their hopes.
