THIE PILOT.
The following poem, written by a
Shrevepnot lady, originally appeared in
the Louisville Journal. At one time it
was "ascribed to Poe.
On .the bosom of the river
VWhere thie sil I unloosed his quiver,
Or the staurlight streamnedforever.
Sailed a vessel light :anl free.
Morning dew-drops Ihunlg like umzanna,
On the bright folds of her banner,
While the.zephyr rose to fatn.her
Softly to the radiant sea.
At hem prow, a pilot beaming
In the flush of youth stoml dreaming,
And lie was in glorious seeming,
S Like am.ange1lfrom above.
Through his hair the breezes sported, .
And as on the wave ho tlotted,
Oft that pilot, anlgl-throatedl,
SVarbled lays of hope and love.
Through those locks so brightly ilowing
uinus of laurel bloom were o~owing,
And his hands anon were throwing
Music fromn the lyre of gold.
Swiftly down the. streamt.lie glided,
Soft, the purple waves divided,
And :a rainbow arch abided
On his canvas' snowy fold.
Anxious hearts with fond devotion.
~\tfheled him sailing to thli o'e'an,
Praying that no wild commotion,
Midst the elements might rise.
And he seemted sonme young Apollo
Charming sununer winds to follow,
While the water-flags' corrola
Trembled tr, his music sighs.
lint, those purple wlaves enchanted
Rolled buside a city haunted
By an awful spell that daunted
•Evory comset to her shore.
Night-shades rank the night encumbored,
And palo nmarle statls lunllbered
Where the lot ols-eaters slumbered
And awoke to life no more.
Then there rushed with lightning quick
IletSS.
O'er his face a mortal sick less,
And the dewxvs in lfearftl thickness
Gathered o'er his temples fair.
And there swept a dying murmur
Through the lovely Southern summer
As the 'eaultteouis pilot colmler
Perished by that city there.
Still rollson thalt radiant river,
And the sun unhimnds his quniver,
On the star-lit stream forevcr
On its bosom as before.
But that vessel's rainbow banler
Greets no ilore the gay sav-anna,
And that pilot's lute drops muannta
On the pirle wav;es no more.

POTTER'S RESOLUTION.

PUIILICA,5S ABANDON THEIR FILI
BUSTERIING TACTICS.
Special to N. O. Democrat.J
WASHINGTON, May 17.-Potter's pre
amble and resolution have just been
adopted, the Republicans not voting;
yeas 146,snays 2-Morse and Mills. In
order to obtain a quorum, the Speaker
had to vote.
There is little to be said concerning
the investigation programme, beyond
what has been anticipated in former dis
patches. The Republicans did not tili
buster for reason that they could not
agee upon a programme of action. Many
of them in their hatred of Hayes were at
heart indisposed to do any thing that
,would severely embarrass the in''esti
gatidn. Hence, 'the oinl thing they
could agtwe on,was th refuse to vote and
let thePetter resolutions go through by
defael. ,.
The work will begin, imttetiltely.
I 8he committee will u·IdUalJtidly We'

tatilty at 'his writing. I may ascertain
-more later. No Republican who was one
of the visiting statesmon to either Flori
da or Louisiana will be allowed to go on
the committee.
sCOPR' OF THE INQUIRY.
As to the scope of investigation, iti may
properly be stated, thatit will begin with
an inquiry into the action of Noyes in
Florida, and John Sherman, Garfield and
ýtoughton in Louisiana; "proceeding on
the theory that. they were guilty
of transactions which would disqualify
them for the offices they hold. From
this point the investigation will procoed
to ascertain what were the connecting
links between Hayes and these men,
with the view to establishing that they,
were simply authorized agents of Hayes,
in the procuration of the frauds by which
the result of the electfon was set aside.
From this the committee will proceed
to investigate the interference of Hayes
and John Sherman with the processes of
justoee in the trial of Anderson, and the
naegotiations that. led to the rescue of
Anderson by the Supreme Court of Lou
isiana will be laid bare. If Hayes ap
pears guilty on these counts, or imuplica
tedain these uouspiracies, he will be im.
penched.
This is a general outline of the pro
gramme. Of course subsequent details-i
way m;dify it in minor particulars, but
it will in. the main be followed out as
above indicated.
* Certain parties here have protesed
against the appointment of Gen. Gibuton
as one of the members of the committee
on the ground tuat he will be likely, on
account of his relations with Nicholls, to
obstruct afull inquiry into the negetia
tiors which led to-the rescue of Andei
son by the Supreme Court, but it. is be
lieved that Speaker Randall vill put him
on anyhow.
It is needless to say that the situation
here is one of great excitement. All talk
of an early adjournment is now ended,
and there is every prospect that the re
mainder .of the session, be it long or
short, will be full of political interest.
Hayes now tally realizes his desperate
situation, and it is not impossible that
he will, if he is crowded to 'the girth,
make a diversion that will throw the
administration into the hands of the
Democratic party.
THE POTTER RESOLUTIONS.
The following is the full text of the
resolutions looking to an investigation
of the presidential frauds in Florida and
Louisiana, which were introduced by Mr.
Potter of New York and passed the House
on the 17th inst :
Whereas, the state of Maryland has by
its legislature formally declared that due
effect was not given to the electoral vote
cast by that state on the ith day of De
comber, 1876, by reason of fraudulent re
turns ot electoral votes from the states of
Florida and Louisiana ; and
Whereas an affidavit by Samuel B. Mc
Liln, chairman of the board of state
canvanssers of the state of Florida, tor the
election held in that state in November,
1876, for electors of President and Vice
President has been made public alleging
ftase and fraudulent returns for votes for
such electors in that state whereby the
choice of the people of that state was an
nulled and reversed and that the action
of the board ot state canvassers in mak
ing such returns was influenced by the
conlduct aind promises of Hon. Edward F.
Noycs, now a minister for the Govern
ment to France ; and
Whereas jt is alleged that a conspiracy
existed in thie state of Louisia a whereby
the republican vote in all the prucimcts
of the lparishl of East Feliciana atnd in
some prkcincts of WVest Feliciaina, m.t the
general election in Novembcr, 1876, was
purposely withheld from the poles to af
tord a pretext for thie exclusion by the
returning board of that state of the votes
cmt in those precincts for electors of
Preaido't anud Vice residuent and that
James E. Auderson, the supervisor of
registration of East Felicianua, and D. A.
Weber, tho.supervisor of registration of
the lparish of West Feliciaes iu that
state, in furtherance ot that conspiracy,
falsely protested that the election iu such
precinctolad not beenu fair and free, and
that the said returning board thereupon
falsely and frandulently excluded the
votes of the said precincts and by means
thereof and other false and fraudulent
action by the said returning board, the
choice of the people oft that state was an
nulled and reversed and that such action
of the said Weber iand Auderson was in
dlAced or uencouraged by tihe assurances of
1lion. John hurmeman, now Secretary.of
thq Treasury of the.United States; and
Whereas the gravity of these charges,
the nature of the eviqenceo upon which
they are reported to be based and the of
fcitl dignity and position of the persons
named In conn6ctjoi -ith th t said frauds
make it propr the sane should be in
:qniied into to the end that the hono' of
,the'natiofi MIty be vindicated and' tile
trnth as to ei/ch elections made known;
thbrrefe,' 'ý'
Sle it rd.abi&1, That a select committee,
iconsitinglef eleven memlers of this
House, be.appointed by the Speaker to
inquire"into the-adlre.nid allegatien us to
.the.tteplqpctftlhe pe ns inh officeufore
said in rcspect, of the said election, and
into the alleged false anti frudulent
canyass, and return of votes. by State,
count3, parish and precinct otlicers in the
said states of Louisiana and Florida, and
into all the focts which, in thejudginent
of the said committee, are connected with
or pertinent thereto; and that tlih said
corinittee, for the purpose of executuig
this resolution, shall h:ave power to send
for persons and' papers, 'to administer
oatlis, and to take testimony, and in their
disdretionn to detail subcommittees, with
like fill authority. of staid committee in
every pdrtitular, and with power torsii in
Florida and Louisiana, which snbcom
nuittees shall be committees of this House;
and the chairman thereof shal be author-.
ized to administer oaths; that the said
committees and subcommittees may
entploy stenographers, clerks and mes
sengers. And ,be attended each by a depu
ty sergeant-at-arms, ;nd may sit during
the sessions of this House and during
the vacation; and that said committee.
do forthwith proceed in this inquiry and
have leave to report at any time.
REPUBLICAN. FALSEHOOD AND
AUDACITY.
iN. O. Picayune.]
The political history, of this country
does not ,show a, more insolent
attempt to falsify notorious facts than
that embraced in the resolutions of the
Reipublicau caucus at Washington. It is
an eftort to take the intelligence and the
onumou sense of thie country by surprise
b, means of the audacious assertion of
extravagant falsehoods, and to justify
a disreputable violation of parliamenta
ry law by mnqaus of unfounded "chirges
against the majority. It is absolutely
false, and Garfield' and Haile and Conger
and their followers know it to be . false,
that the resolut io pending in the Hiouse
is, either in form or intent, an attempt
"''t re-open the qu-estion of the Presiden-'
tal title." Ou the coutrary, everybody
knows that a movement to -vitiate Mr.
Hayes' title to the Presideucy, if. it could,
unite the Democratic vote, would have
assured a large Republican support.
The unanimous opposition of the. Repub
liocinus to Mr. Potter's resolution results
from the rage and disappointment of the
howling mobof machine politicians who
have beeu, for at least a year, workiung
vigorously to undermine the President
in his own party, and who deluded them
selves with the notion that the Demo
crats would act as their auxiliries in the
kind of warfare which they were wag
ing on the man whom they had thrust
into the Presidency. It is because' the
Democrats have wisely resolved to ab.
stain from tuconstitutienal and revolu
tionary piolects that these statesmen
are so bitterly disappointed.
Every sensible aman in the country
sees the absurdity of denouncing as rev
olutionary a proposal to investigate and
report upon the historical facts of a Pres
idential election. Everybody temoem
bhers the enthusiastic zeal with
which .Republicau majorities in Con
gross lavished money and committees on
the investigation of past elec
tions; how they investigated
the XNew York election of 1372,
and the Louisiana election of 1872, and
the Mssissippi election of 1d74, and t he
Louisiana election of 1874 ; and how
whilst Democratic Hlouse conmmites
were searching for the fgets of the Flori
da and the Louisiana and the South Car
olina elections of 1876, Reoublican senu
ate committees were pretending to exam
ine the same questiouns. Nobody thnought
it revolutionary oi those occasions to in
quire into the facts of stalte cletions.
'i'lThe ropublicauns only discover it to bi
revoluitiollnary low beeinlso they know
that a tnir inquiry would cover with ob
loquy and disgrace the men who no w oc
cupy the highest , positionns in their lparty.
Inn their second resolution the repubili
cans declare that thie Potter rcsolutiomn
'has been devised by individuals for pri
vate party enua,' and that it ,should be
resisted by all the meaun which are a.u
thorized by the rules of this liousu.' Tie
stupid person whno drafted this resuolhution
did not see the absurdlity of confisling
' lprivato elnds' with 'party cnds.' l Par
ty ends' may be gdo:l or bund-if they "re
republican they are generally bad; if an
ti-republican they are generally good
but whether good or had they are pub
lic and not privateo ends.
It is equally stupid to speak of the
mniuner in which thie resolution is resisa
ed ais a process authorized by thIe irules of
the House. In fiact tllrefnusal to votelsa
violatiuon of the fundamennntal principles
of all parliaoiuenary Iodics. 'Ine refusal
to vote for the purpose of breakiug aqnIo
rtoum is essentially ia r.volutionary act;
amld it is the-only act of a vetdiftoarr.
character that has been committed du
ring the progress of the controvrsy. To
speak of such an expedient as a, metlptd'
authorized by the rnles of the House is
not only an lbuse of language, blrt it ist
a flagrant and reckless attack on the"
common sense of the eonntry.
THE RED FLAG IN NEWYOIK.
NEWm YORK, May 5.-The ei 4,t. au,.
nual convention of the America. Ltbr
Reflorm L~ague was commenced l to4ya.
E. H. Haywood presided, and madldg
the opening address, saying that.; Nb,
League seeks liberty to. assert thp pa4,-a
ral right of all people to do their best et:
their own risk, and to repeal all laws
recogn izing property and to abiolish all
monlopolies against labor. Tha following
resolutiolns were adopted:
Resolredl, That since capitalists take
life and destroy propo" ty to retainu their
power to steal, the Kearney men whoin
voked the halter in. *California and tile
Mollie Magudires, reported to have kidlled
coal bosses and railroad tstrikens,
are morally lawful belligerents, justly
exercising tile same rights of defensive
warfire applauded ill tipping British tea
in Boston Harbor, in John Brown's march'
on Harper's Ferry, and in tile killing
of pro:slavery Southerners by Northern
Unionists.
.Resohred, That the chief mission of the
silver bill greenback movement is to has
ten repudiation when debts paid once
in tile form of interest will to paid for
ever, and all hail the growing and ir
resistible tendencies South at d West to
second the purposes of the New England
labor reformers by abolishing all power
to get pay for loans, stocks or other val2
uables more than once, and to make it il-.
legal, disgraceful and impossible to' prey
on other people's earnin lugs.
.Resolved, That the National and Work
ingmlen's parties, like their older breth
ren in sil, the Republicans and Ddrno
crat", by sustaining usurpation, enslave,
defraud andl despoil woman; thiit de
manuding for her equal pay for equal
work with man, we seek indusirial equi
ty, to erase sex lines as well as race aind
color lines from labor reform.
At the afternoon session fi Mr. HIoywood
made an address on labor, greenbacks and'
free love questions. George Madox said
New York ought to issue its own money,
build markets, docks and other improve
ments, and he hoped, "By the Eternal,"
that people would starve in order to
awaken them to these facts. He said if
these things could not be got by the bal
lot-box, then he favors getting them by
the cartridge-box. He world make it a
State prison offence for any man to hold'
nxpre real estate than was necessary to
his support. 'The laeorer makes wealth,
and it should belong to him. Similar
addressds were made by others.
At the evening session Mrs. Anna M.'
Middleton, of Connecticut, spoke on wo
man's rights, ;abor and pdpulation.
Other addresses were also made.
THE CHARGES AGAINST SHERMAN."
THE EVIDENCE AT HAND TO SUPPORT'
TIIEIM-MRS. JENKS AND THE'
SHERMAN LETTERS.
W-AslsxGToox, May 14.-The particu
lar evidence on which John Sherman is'
indicted in the resolution is a photogra
phic copy of his letter to Weber and An
derson, the supervising inspectors of
East and West Feliciana, Louisiana. This
letter authorized them to make out the
protest against the results in those par
ishes in which tile returning board threw
out the Democratic votes. These men at
first hesitated, and it will be remember
ed the delay caused an open and flagrant
violation of the lan' on the part of the -r
turning board in receiving the protests.
Mrs. .Jcks, a friend of Mrs. Weber, was
