' CUBE BEATS IN THE UNITED STATES SEN
ATE. Whatever may bo the public estimate of
the swearing capacities of the average Lou
isiana politician, the following testimony
given by the Sergeant-at-Arms of the House
of the Packard Legislature, will scarcely
fail to carry conviction. It is direct, Bharp,
vigorous, and so directly in harmony with
the methods of tho Mirage carpet-bagger,
that it seqms unassailable. Who that reads
and believes will dare to 6ay that the un
conscionable rascal that misrepresents Lou
isiana in the higher branch of congress
should not, fcy the vote of every honest man
of that body, be hustled out of his seat, a
aisgraceti and dishonored man ?
Before the Committee on Privileges and
Elections, Thomas Murray, the 8erj?eant
at-Arms aforesaid, testified that Col. Souer.
the man who handled a goodly portion of
the Kellogg corruption monoy," occupied a
mom next to his, and that Gov. Kellotrf.
on a number of occasions, directed him to

Souer's office which he did.
