Warren, Ohio, Sept 10. The anti-
Garfield Republicans of tbe Nineteenth
Congressional District held a convention

a renort obtained circulation that the r".

three Trumbull countv men admitted, and
it was there that - the final shape of the

Then aP things, apparently, being ready,
there was a filing out of tbe Probate ol-
lice. and a'climbing op tbe hack stairs in
to the court room, where the man from
Ashtabula county and tbe several other
gentlemen found an abundance of empty
benches. There were eighteen persons
Dresent. including reporters, spectators.
and tbe gentleman from Orwell. One of
tbe party from Lake county, named Tut
tie, was called to the chair, and Jerome
Bonaparte Phillips, tbe party from Or
well, was chosen scribe. Then came tbe
appointment of two committees, one on
resolutions and tbe other on nomination.
These committees were not made up with
out a struggle not to get on them, but to
get off. For instance, the lone individual
who was responsible for Ashtabula coun
ty, asked to be excused from the commit
tee on resolutions, his duties as scribe be
ing too onerouB to admit of bis dividing
his time with other engrossing cares.
Capt. Dyer, who was named as a mem
oer of tbe committee, arose and explained
ibat for reasons best known to the friends
of the movement here he should be ex
cused. Mr. Dyer, thought that it would
i-e quite as well for Judge Yeomans, who
was also named lor one of the committees,
to ' stop a little." Judge Yeomans then
arose and said that be thought it wonld
be better to have the movement appear to
have existence outside ot Trumbull coun
ty; that it had been charged that the ami
uarneia movement was connned to a
clique in Warren, and if Trnmbull county
men should take part in this meeting the
same charges would continue to be made.
This led Capl. Burrows (Greeleyite) to
propound as toiiows
"Well, Judge, there is tome opposition
to Garfield, in Trumbull county, ain't
Judge'Y. "O, yes; I know one . man
standing now belore you. It is not that I
am not in sympathy with you, bnt don't

Hendry, of Lake, didn't think it was

should not stand up to the rack, "fodder

Wednesday last three thousand saloon
keepers met in council, and resolved that
the license laws must be repealed, and
that tbe traffic in beer must be treated
the same as any other business, and also
that tbis question must go into politics,
and be made an isssue. The beer inter
est iu New York is one that has positive
power, and of course politicians will be
found who will recognize it. The Ger
man element is immensely strong here,
and on the question of free beer and tbe
right to drink it Sundays as well as otb
er days it is almost an unit They do
not like to be driyen out of the city for
their Sunday recreations, and they will
make a vigorous fight for, what to them
is a vital matter. This question is one of
the disturbers that come up every little
while to vex the souls of politicians. The
American religious element is inflexibly
opposed to the violation of the Sabbath
the German is as inflexibly determined
to spend it as be pleases. Imaginge tbe
perplexity of the ambitious politician . in
whose district these elements are about
' Under the present system, it costs from
$50, to $150 to bury a corpse in tbe most
modest way. The most exorbitant prices
are charged for coffins and tbe accompa
niments, all ot which are paid without
a question, tor no man can ask prices
over the -dead body of one loved and
lost. . Then comes carriages, price of lot.
etc., all of which makes a sum that
oppressive to a poor man or one even
in moderate circumstances. Tbe Ger
mans have a society for doing away with
all this. They have taken up the idea of
cremation, and propose to bring it into
vogue. They are building a hall 60x40
feet, fitted with an altar at which relig
ious ceremonies may be had. Back of
tbis altar is to- be a furnace capable of
being heated to 1,000 deg. which melts
soft plates in the metal coffin enclosing
the remains, which heat will reduce tbe
remains to ashes in an hour and a half.
And all this can be done for $8, which is
bringing burial expenses within reach of
the poorest. Tbe Germans will take this
idea and act upon it, for this people have
not the reverence tor ancient forms that
the Americans possess, and tbe form of
disposing of remains is in entire conso
nance with their idea of the fitness of
things. And who knows but alter it has
become a common practice among the
Germans it may be adopted by tbe rest
of mankind t

Tilton gives tbe world nothing new in
the matter, but he explains tbe wby of

to the question why, after permitting hi
wire's infidelity to remain a secret with
him for four years, he gave it to the
world, be says that had Elizabeth remain

New York, Sept. 15. 1874.
The Louisiana Revolution.
The people of New Orleans are
in an open revolt against the Mate
municipal authorities. The scenes
described in the dispatches on Tues
day morning are of an appalling
nature. The speck of war has
broadened out into a black and low
enng cloud that hangs over the
whole State of Louisiana and threat
ens dire disaster. New Orleans is the
scene oi a new revolution, lhey are
backed by what they hold to be the
genuine and only estate liovernment
They are gathering as militia, and
under orders of Fenn, who was elect
ed Lieutenant Governor with Mc
Enery, and who, in the latter's ab
sence, issues his proclamations and
commands as Governor of Louisiana,
There is revolution in Louisiana, and
New Orleans leads the van.
The people have been ripe for
revolution these two years. At no
time, however, has revolt appeared
so formidable as now. Ihe imme
diate provocation of this ourbreak
was the seizure of arms consigned
to private firms in New Orleans.
Three citizens were arrested on the
charge of having in their possession
stands of arms and quantities or am
unition to be nsed in assisting the
secret organization known as the
White League and against the Me
tropolitan Police. Subsequently
Gen .Badger, the Chief Police, Mr,
Curtis, the Clerk, and Judge McAr-
thnr were brought before Justice
Houston. They were commited to
jail for contempt in refusing to de
liver over the arms that had been
seized, but they were immediately
pardoned by Gov. Kellogff. The
jearch and seizures were continued
throughout last week, and Sunday's
papers contained a 'call, signed by
fifty merchants, for a mass meeting'
at Clay Statue on Canal street( to
protect aeainst - seizures and other
outrages. This call had a response
in the gathering of an immense
throng of people, filling the .streets
for several blocks around. The
meeting passed a resolution calling
upon Kellogg to resign, and a com
mittee was appointed to wait upon
him for his answer. -- He declined
to receive any communication on
tbe ground that it came from an
armed and lawless mob. When his
answer was received, the word went
forth to disperse for arms. Men
went to their houses only to return
with rifles, shot-guns, and small
arms, and to proceed against the ex
isting Government. The Mayor's
office was invaded, and the Mayor
had to give way. Penn, as Acting
Governor, issued a : proclamation
calling upon all. citizens between
the ages of 18 and 4Q to join the
militia. He set forth that this was
not war upon the negroes, who
should be permitted to pursue their
avocations in peace, but against the
thieves, plunderers, and spoilers who
had oppressed the people for two
years. .Then came an order from
the same source conferring the chief
command upon Gen. Jred IN. Ogden
lbe first conflict between the citi
zens and the Metropolitan Police oc
curred on the- levee. Gatling
guns and Winchester rifles on one
side and motely arms of a mob on
the other were sufficient to make
a list of dead and wounded variously
estimated as high as fifty. Ihe Me
tropolitans are said to have suffered
most severely, which was partly
owing, perhaps, to the desertion of
the negro portion of the force; and
Gen. .badger, their Chief, was badly
wounded. Keport has it that Mar
shal Packard and Attorney-General
Dibble were killed or wounded, but
this is not confirmed. United States
troops were at the Custom House,
but took no part in tbo fight. Rein
forcements were expected. At last
accounts the citizens were throwing
up barricades in the "streets, and the
revolt threatened to assume some of
the fierceness and wildness of a rev-
lution in Paris.
Later. The struggle in New Orleaus
had but a short duration. The Kellogg
rule is ended, andthe M'Enery supremacy
