GOV. PALM EH BEFORE THE COM
MITTEE. New York. July 29. The Potter Com
mittee met at No. (il Wall htreet, a 2 p. m.
Gov. Palmer was first examined as to his
connection with the army, lie then said he
was one of the Democratic visitors to New
Orlaens in Noveinlicr, 187H. After their ar
rival there ho was chosen chairman of the
Imaril of visitors. They met at the .St.
Charles hotel. After the organization they
called upon Governor Kellogg and had
a free conversation with him. lie enid
the apparent returns showed that the
state had gone tor Tilden, but that, in
consequence of intimidation, five parishes
would be thrown out and this would give
the state to the Haves electors. Thev went
to see Ciwsanave and Kenner. Pinch back
came in during the conversation, which was
qr.iU) tree. Then they called upon Gov.
Wells and afterwards, when Gen. Anderson
arrived, called uivm the committee. The
conversation was quite free. Cassanavc and
Kenner gave the same information that
Gov. Kellogg did. They knew my sympa
thies for the colored people. I gave the
best advice I could, but Mr. Cassnave, who
was the most honest man on the returning
board, said the Democratic party could not
be trusted with the interests of the colored
people, and that they must be kept out of
power. The general feeling with all the
parties with whom I conversed was a feel
ing of distrust for Democatic politicians.
The examination of ex-Gov. Palmer was
continued until half-past 5 o'clock p. in. In
response to questions put by Congressman
Iliscock, he said that next to emancipation,
the greatest blessing the colored people re
ceived was their being mustered out of po
litics, which he considers to be virtually the
case. The Republicans iu Louisiana had
Used the colored people as monkeys to pull
their chestnuts from the tire. He found the
returning Ixmrd as partisan as he expected.
He tnkl Well and Anderson that
the Tilden electors in his opinion were
fairly returned, but that if they decided
otherwise they should bo supported by
evidence which would satisfy the country
at large. He believed that the Democratic
party in Louisiana would have submitted
to the Packard government if they believed
it had been honestly elected, but they felt
that they had been cheated, and would
rather have federal administration with a
military governor in the charge of the
state, lie had no douot that the state
authorities could readily discover the state
of tlie Elizabeth Piiikston outrage, for he
had satisfied himself on the subject.
HOW YOI NO NEW Y01IKEIIS DISPORT THEM
SELVES IN THE WAVES IN" Fl'LL HIOIIT OF
LADIES IS Pflll.IC PLACES.
New York. July 211. Yesterday after
noon a number of young men went bath
ing at pier four North river. They made
no pretense of donning anything in tho
shape of u bathing suit. They acted like
wild savages. The neighborhood is thickly
populated, and the travel on horse cars was
almost unprecedented with excursionists go
ing to Stateii Island and other ferries, Thu
young men in the face of women and chil
dren has not a thought of propriety, and
their actions were viewed with disregard
and indignation. One of the party who was
conspicuous among others for his indecent
behavior, finding himself headed olV from
the river, made a dash for the atreet and ran
into a W. atreet car, the officer ut his heels.
The car was crowded, and there was general
consternation among tho passengers at tho
shocking sight of a naked man running pell
mell through a public thoroughfare and
through a crowded car. He was hemmed
in between tho passengers, many of whom
wero ladies, but before the officer could
have laid hands on him he got out on the
front platform and made for the pier again.
Ho dashed headforemost overboard. They
still kept up the chase, jumping into thu
water after tho fugitive Thu excitement
of the closo chase did not end here; the two
men struggled desperately in tho water, hut
handicapped ua tho officer waa
with thu clothing ho held on manfully to
his prisoner, and pummelled him aoundly
to reduce hint to nubjection. Hergt. Gatlin
threw a rope to tho ornccr which the latter
tied alwut the 'prisoner, and by this means
the man was hauled on shore, like a c.uiiou
monster of the deep. He gave his nuiii)
as Daniel Morrison, aged twenty-two years.
In a similar manner six other bathers were
subsequently arrested and imprisoned.
They will be arraigned in court to-day.

OEN'ERAL BELIEF OV MACKENZIE'S RAID INTO
MEXICO STEWART'S CASTLB CONVERTED
INTO A CHINESE HEADqi'AHTERS NOTH
ING DONE IN ILLICIT DISTILLERS' CASES.
Wasiiinoton, July 29. Crowds of idlo
people, mostly tramps, are gathered in the
vicinity of the various government works,
but no disturbance has taken place to-day,
Thu police, are out in full force and tho men
at worn are iuuy protected. It Is rumored
alwut the streets that the disturbance has
been organized for 1 o'clock to-day, but the
police authorities discredit the rumor.
No official advices have been received
here continuing the report that Colonel
Mackenzie has again crossed the hue into
Mexico, this time with a large force, in
pursuit oflndi'ina ami Mexican thieves.
Olliciala at thu war otllce, however, do not
doubt the report, and expect to hear from
Gen. Ord on the subject as soon as Macken

One of the finest residences here, built by
Ex-Senator Stewart, of Nevada, and known
to at least local fame as Castle Stewart, will,
it is said, become tho headquarters of the

THE ILLICIT DISTILLERS.
William Earlc, sjiecial counsel for the in
ternal revenue officers now incarcerated in
the Greenville jail, says that after several
consultations with the attorney gen
eral and other memlers of the cabiuet, no
definite course of action has yet been deter
mined tipou, and that it will be difficult to
say what will be done in advance of the de
velopments of the case. He i of the opin
ion that the great mass of the people in
South Carolina favor the observance of the
revenue laws and that it is unfair deduction
to assume that the clamor of a tew interest
ed parties should lie taken for public opin
ion throughout the State. Mr. Earle furth
er wivs that he has a high opinion of Judge
Kershaw, regarding him as a conservative
and conscientious nun, who has often ex
pressed himself in favor ot the enforcement
of the revenue laws, and that the point is as
to the power of the general government, and
tiiat a decision by the United States supreme
court on the question as to the jurisdiction
of national and statu courts is earnestly
desired by many prominent jur
ors in the state who entertain thu same
opinion on the subject as the judge, that
illicit distilling is ehiclly confined to thu
mountain districts on the northern Itordor
where the inhabitants are ignorant and un
cultivated, that he has never had any diffi
culty in securing a jury to punish an illicit
distiller, as the farmers outside of n certain
portion of the state find the tralh'c hurtful
to their interests. Mr. Earle expects to
remain here some days. Officials of inter
nal revenue say there is not the slightest
fear of any trouble in the event of aspecial
session of the federal court to try the case,
efforts being made by tho department to
encourage the establishment of legal dis
tilleries, which the commissioner tlunks
will go far to put a stop to all troubles with
