THE CONSTITUTION OF C'-'R FATHERS.
W.P.WILLIAMSON, - - Editor,
JAS. C. CHARLES, - Associate
TAltriOHO', . o.
Friday, : : January 22, 1S75
PLEASE EXPLAIN THIS, GEN.
It makes all the difference in the
world whether it is your bull that
was gored, or my ox. When Mr.
Kellogg chose to superintend the
organization cf the Louisiana Legi
islature the other day, and to do
termine who had a right to sit in it,
he had no trouble in obtaining the
services of the United States anuv
to expel the persons whom he
judged not to be members; and the
President emphatically approved
me transaction until rne lnuijjnauon
of the country and the threatened
uproar at Washington forced him
to acknowledge that its propriety
was 'perhaps a debatable question.'
But it may be as well to rcmom
ber that three years ago United
States marshal Packard and other
representatives of the Federal pow:
er at New-Orleans arrested Gov
Warraoth on a charge of interfering
with the organization of the L
laturc in other word-?, doing jus
what ivellogg has new drne wit!
the aid of United States troopy
The right of the Governor to inter
ferfi with the organization of the
Legislature did not seem to bo
debat. 'able question' then, did it 't
The only difference between the
two cases is that in 1872 the Gov
ernor was opposed to the Custom
house faction, and in 1875 h? i3
sustained by it.
What a gigantic fraud and iiil.se
pretense the connection of the
''Washington government with this
Louisiana scandal lias been from
! he first. Warmoth and his sun
porters were arrested in order that
'.he Custom house party-might get
possession of the Legislature dur
ii:2 their absence: and while Packed
v is thin pretending to protect the
iieneral Assembly from outside in-
N-rfercnce, Casey was sailing up and
Sown the river with acargo of Sena
tors on board a revenue cutter,
keeping them out of the reach of
i!ie Sergant at -Arm? so a quorum
ald not be assembled until
;!se Custom house had secured a
TE3 W02LD IN ASMS.
It is now confidently asserted by
;!ie leading English authorities says
:'te Petersburg yews, that a first
class European war is now irnmi
iont. Germany is sai l to be arm-,
i-igen masse, and that all tho sur
v Minding powers are compelled to
lo likewise to meet tho approach
ing issue. What Germany has won
in territory ;uvl power, has been
won by armies, and her statesmen
and rulers know full well that, like
all military conquest, they can only
be successfully held by thi same
We have a pratica1. illustration of
this truth under our eyes in the
case of Louisiana. The Kellogg
government was won by the federal
bayonet, and it is confessed by
even leading republicans, that usur
pation can only he upheld by the
presence of federal tools. Take
away Sheridan and his military
and the government of Louisiana
would at once fall into iightfnl
hands, and peace be restored with
out disorder or the shedding of one
dropofblx'd. A government in
augurate'! by force, is the most
grinding of despotisms.
And now it appears that the
President has placed troops at the
disposal of the Piadical Governor of
Mississippi, and that Sheridan re-
cognises Crosby as the rightful
sheriff of Vicksburg. So we go.
Troops will soon be stationed in
every Southern State before the
next Presidential election.
Tho seizure of a llomari CVholic
seminary by the Prussian autho:
ties and the severe punishment of
the bislr.-p and ; lorgy of the diocese
will add still more to the hatred felt
fur Bismarck. He is making mar-
tyrs of his opponents, and martyr -
dom never fails to strengthen the
cause in which it is endured.
Instead of the
io vote bein close
in Pennsylvania for Senato., Wal-
lace, Democrat, was chosen ou joint
ballot by a majority of eight.
THE LOUISIANA SITUATION IN
The report of the New Orleans
comittce proves beyond a doubt
First That the last election in
Louisiana was, in the words of the
committee, 'full, fair, free and
Second- That it resulted in the
election of a democratic majority of
twenty nine in the lower House of
Third That the report of the
Returning Board was fraudulent,
unjust and contrary to the very law
under which it acted.
This carries us to the assembling
of the Legislature. Here we find
these facts undisputed :
First The Returning Board had
prepared a list of one hundred and
six members, of whom, under its
manipulations, flftjnthree were re
publicans, as was supposed, and
fifty, three democrats. Thu3 this
Board attempted to set aside the
will of the people of tho State.
Second One hundred and six
members met on the 4th of January
and proceedod to choose a Speaker,
the republicans present actually
taking part in the proceedings by
nominating a candidate for Speaker
and voting f.r him, by accepting
appointment as part cf a Committee
on Credentials and orjranizins with
this committee and by their votes in
the House on the Speakership giv- '
in a ouorurr, which the democrats
then present wc-M not alone have
had. Wilt:; received fifty-five votes
Ilahn (republican), two, and one
was blank: fifty -six being the
constitution -i! quorum. When the
members were sworn in, fifty or.o
democrats and five republicans took
the oath, making an indisputable
and regular quorum of the House.
Third The Legislature was
thereafter dispersed by United
States tnnq ?.
Fourth The republicans pro
ceeded to organize, but here is the
important and vital point they
had and have no quorum, and can
not, therefore, act as a Legislature.
They may adjourn from day to day;
but. under the Louisiana constitu
tion, can do uoiio of the acts of a

Sixth Hence the pretended
election of Pir.chhack is a fraud and

constituting of a legal House ex-'
cept federal bayonets. If Congress
will remove them the Wiltz House,

Synopsis of tho Report cf the Con
gressional Sub-Comaitteo on Louis
The report of Messrs.Fostar, Eep ,
Potter, Dem., and Phelps, Eep., be
inz tho subcommittee of the congres
sional committeo on Louisiana affairs,
has been published, after it was im
possible for tho Radical leaders to
prevail on these gentlemen to longer
witliold" it. It is a fair and hon
est report, tb.9 effjet of which the
whitewashing report of the Radical
tnombers of the large cotnmittoo now
in New Orleans will be totally inade
quate to impair. Tho points of the
sub-commit.ee s report are these in
First That the last election in
Louisiana was in words of the corn--
mitteo, 'full' fair, free and peacoable,
Sneond That it resulted in the fc-
lection of a Democratic majority of
twenty-nine in the lower house ot the
Third That the raport of the Re
tuminer Board was fraudulent, un
iust and contrary to the very law ud
der wliicn il acteu.
This carries us to the assembling
of tho Legislature. Here we find
thosa facts undisputed :
First The returninc: Board had
prepared a l;6t of one hundred and
eix members, of whom, under its
manipulations, fifty-three were Ko
Dublicans, as was supposed, and fifty
threo Democrats. Thus this Board
attempted to set aside the will of the
people of the State.
Second One hundred and six
member met on tho 4th of January
and proceeded to choose a Speaker,
the Republicans present actually tak
ing part in the procedings by nomi
nating a candidate for Speaker and
voting for him, by aecepting appoint
ments as part of a Committeo on Cre
dentials and organizing with this
ccmuiitte and by their votes in the
Ilonso on the Speakership giving a
quorum which the Democrats then
present would not alone have had.
Wiltz received fifty-live votes, Ilahn
(Republican,) two, and one was blank
and fifty-six is fhe constitutional
xuorum. When the members were
amorn in fifty-one Democrats and
live Republicans took the oath, mak
ing an indisputable and regular
quorum of the house.
Third The Legislature was there
after dispersed by United States
Fourth The Republicans proceed
ed to organize, but here is the im
portant and vital point- they had
and iiave no quorum, and cannot,
therefore, act as a Legislature. They
may adjourn from day to day ; but,
under the Lot isiana constitution, can
do none of iho tuts of a Legislature.
Fifth lie: ce Louisiana has to
day no regularly organized and com
petent lov.fi- House of Legislature,
it cannot have a quorum, even on
the report of the Returning Board.
Sixtli Hence the pretended elec
tion of Pinchback is a fraud and
Seventh And finally, nothing is
tho wav of t.ha assemblim? and
constituting of a legal House except
Federal bayonets. If Congress will
.remove them the Wiltz House, the
only regular one, would at once as
Washington specifcl says of the
Louisiana report :
'The report of the sub- committee
on Southern Affairs in Louisiana is
a terrible blow to the Administra
i t; n and to the carpet-baggers and
Tho more it is reudy
the wonder that it
should ever have been permitted to
see the li-r ht. lnd all statements
I to the contrary not withstanding it
I i i,t i r i .
i is an undoubted iact that it was not
I i ir n -i i
made public until all possible means
hil l t.non rpsnrtfii tn inr ita Bnn
prtssion. Now all that the Radi-
I ca.s can uo is to attempt to throw
! 1 1. -
uiscreuit upon it, an undertaking in
which they are not likely to meet
with much success, and to bring in
another report, such as Kellogg
may dictate. The latter duty may
devolve on Messrs. George F.
Hoar, Frye and Wheeler, who, in
compliance with the demand of Kel
logg, will leave for New Orleans at
anearly day. Ivellogg and Packard
are already preparing the evidence
and picking out the swift witnesses,
upon whose testimony their report
will be based. Jt is fortunate for
the reputations of Messrs. Foster
and Phelps that they went to New
Orleans when they did, and made
such a report as is now before tho
It h a hopeful indication of tho
change for the better iu public eou
tiinent, that Harper's Weekly, .whicu
has been heretofore a most uncom
promising organ of the administra
tion, sharply criticizes and condemns
tho uso of tho military to disperse
tho Legislature of Louisiana. Mr.
Curtis is plain spoken in the expres
sion of his disapproval, and warns
the President that such high-handed
usurpations will only tend to the dis
ruption of tho Republican party.
Grants message on the Louisana
question was such a concoction, in
our opinion, of falsehoods, that we
were not disposed to publish it. We
consider it a square "back down"
from his policy. We refer our
readers to the opinions of the New
York press on the message which
appears on our first page.
The radical administration at
Washington only calls for $50,
000,000 more of revenue or taxes
upon the people to carry on their
military government. What will
the people say of that new piece of
