At 11.45 the Senators entered the hall and took »eats assigned them. After all wereaeated the presiding officer called the meeting to order and directed the , , , r * aa *ng or the resolutions of each house favor of counting the vote of Nevada. The teller then announced that the Stat* ef Nevada hail cast three votes for Haye* and Wheeler. Then followed in succession the State of New Hampshire, with 5 votes for Hayes and Wheeler; New Jersey, with 0 votes for Tilden and Hendricks; New York, withSS votes for Tilden and Hend ricks; North Carolina, with 10 votes for Tilden and Hendricks; Ohio; with 21 votes for Hayes and Wheeler. The preei dlng officer then opened and handed the tellers a certificate received from the State of Oregon. It was read by Mr. Stone (Mo.) and proved to be sworn cer tificate of the three Hayes electors Cart wright, Odell, and Watts, executed before a Notary Public. The papers contain a full statement of the doings of the three electors, the res ignation of Watts as Fostmaster, his sub sequent choice by the other two electors, the original ballots cast by the three elec tors, etc. They were read in full. The presiding officer then handed to the tellers the certificate of the rival elec tors, Cronin, Miller, and Parker, authen ticated by the signatures of the Governor and Secretary of State, with the seal of the Slate attached. This certificate gives two votes to Hayes and Wheeler and one vote te Tilden and Hendricks. Senator Mitchell, of Oregon, presented objections to the certificate of Cronin, Miller, and Farker, on the following grounds;— < Firgt. Because neither of said persons was ever appointed elector by the State of Oregon in any manner whatever. Second. Because it appears from the records and paper contained in and at tached to the certificate of W. H. Odell, J. 0. Cartwright,and John W. Watts,that they were duly appointed electors and cast their votes as such. Third. Because it does not appear from the face of Governor Groover's cer tificate attached to the returns oi the votes of Cronin, Miller, and Parker that such certificate was issued to three per sons liavingthe highest number of votes for electors, but was issued by him to per sons whom he deemed eligible, though one of them E. A. Cronin, was not ap pointed thereto according to the laws of the State of Oregon. Fourth. Because it Appears from the certificate of S. Chadwick. Secretary of State, that Odell, Cartwright, and Watts received the highest number of votes, and that the Secretary of State, in pursuance of law, so declared, and that therefore the certificate ofthc Governor, in so far as it omitted to certify the name of J. W. Watts as one of the electors appointed, and in so far as such certificate contained the name of E. A. Cronin as one of the electors,fails to conform to the act of Con gress in such cases made and provided, and to the law of Oregon, and that such certificate is as to said Cronin without authority and of no effect. Fifth. Because it appears from both certificates that Odell and Cartwright, a majority of the Electoral College were duly appointed electors by the State of Oregon, in the manner directed by the Legislature, that their record presented to the President of the Senate, and by him to the two houses, shows that a vacancy in the office of elector existed on the day fixed by law for the meeting of electors, and that such vacancy was filled by the appointment of Watts. This objection is signed be Senators Mitchell and Sargent and by Representa tives Lawrence, of Ohio, Burchard, of Il linois, and McDill, of Indiana. Senator Kelley, of Oregon, then presen ted an objection to the certificate of Cart wright, Odell and Watts. It is signed by Senators Kelley, Bogy, McMonald, Ste venson and Cooper, and by Representa tives Field, of New York; Tucker, of Vir ginia; Dane of Oregon; Jenks, of Penn sylvania; Walling, of Ohio; Clymer, of Pennsylvania; wiggiuton, of California; Poppleton, of Ohio; Vance, of Ohio; Hurd, of Ohio; and Luttrel, of Califor nia. The grounds of the objection are— First. The papeis purporting to be the certificates of the electoral votes of State of Oregon, have not annexed to them a certificate of the electoral votes of the State of Oregon, have not annexed to them a certificate of the Governor of Oregon as required to be made and annexed by Sec tions 13Q and 138, United States Revised Statutes. Second. The papers have not annexed to them a list of the names of Cartwright, Odell and Watts as electors, to which the seal of the State of Oregon was affixed by the Secretary of State, and signed by the Governor and Secretary, as required by section 00 of chapter XIV Lq of the gen eral laws of Oregon. Third. It was the right and duty of the Governor of Oregon, under the laws of that State, to give a certificate of election or appointment as electors to J. C. Cart wright, Wm. H. Odell and E. A. Cronin, they being the three persons capable of being appointed Presidential electors, who received the highest number of votes at the election held in Oregon on November ■ Fourth. Cartwright and Odell had ri"ht or authority in law to appoint Watts there was no vacancy in the olnce ol I re sidential elector on that (lay. Fifth. Cartwright and Odell had no rieht or authority in law to appoint Watts on December 0, 1870, inasmuch as they did not on that day compose or form any r 1 , C ° Uei;e ^ 0rCg ° n " %. C ÏÂ«^OÜ. 1 I 1 no thority toappointJWatts as elector on De cember 0, 1818, because on that^ay Watts was still the postmaster at Lafayette, Ore gon, and was still on that day bolding the said office of profit and trust. Watts, who claims to be an elector in the above-described certificate, was In February, 1873, appointed post master at Lafayette, Oregon, and was duly commissioned and qualified as snch post, master, that being an office of trust under the laws, and continued to be and act as such postmaster from February, 18T3, un til after November 13, 1878 , and was act ing as such postmaster on November 7, 1878, when Presidential electors were ap pointed bysthe Slate of Oregon, and that he was ineligible to be appointed as one of the said Presidential electors. Eighth. When the Governor of Oregon caused the lists of the names of the elec tors of the State to be made and certified, such lists did not contain the name of Watts, but did contain the names of Cart wright, Odell and Cronin, who were duly appointed electors of President and Vice President of the United State in the State of Oregon on November 7,1870. Seventh. Tilden on Horaebaok. HR NEVER LOOKED BITTES— NOT BO THBRND ABOUT THE ELECTORAL COMMISSION. New York correspondent Buffhlo Courier. I had started on again, in a sort of brown study, when a solitary horse man turned the corner right in front of me. I looked up, and behold ! there was the very identical man. I had a chance to observe our ex-Govcrnor's face before he passed, and a calmer or f ileasanter face I have not seen in a ong time. Not a shadow of anxiety there, not a line indicating*iueasiness or concern about the momdntous pro ceedings in Washington. Ho was out for his regular afternoon's ride and so far as any observer could judge he had left all the care of politics behind. 1 have seen Governor Tilden a number of times in the past few years, but I never saw him look so well as be did yesterday, sitting as straight and firm in the saddle aa an old cuirassier, and seeming as fresh and buoyant as a man of forty. I am told that he doea not worry himself at all about the pros and cobs of White House possibilities, and that be heeds but little of what is pub lished daily on that subject. He knows exactly what the situation ta. and he does not want to have his habitual composure ruffled by keeping the run of this, that and the other new state ment and dislosure, so called. At all eveats be won't allow anything in that line to deprive him of his' regular two hours iu the saddle, and he kbeps the matter as far from him in his comfor table home, facing Gramercy Park, as the circumstances will allow. If Con gress and the Electoral tribunal decide the great question against him I much doubt If Governor Tilden will lose one hour's sleep in consequence. MISSISSIPPI AFFAIRS — TES TI MON Y OF HON. E. BARKS DALE f. Feb. 21.—Uon. E. Washington, Barksdale, of Mississippi, Tilden Elector at Large and a member of the National Democratic Committee, testified before the special Senate committee investiga ting the Mississippi election concerning Mississippi aflhirs. Entire good feeliug has been established under Democratic rule; he participated in the canvasses of 1875 and '76, and has knowledge of how they were conducted; the Democrats promised the colored people protection in their make impartial laws, and the prom ise was kept by the Democratic Legisla ture, as was declared by colored Republi can members at the close of the last two sessions. Mr. Barksdale also testified that lie is acquainted with G. P. Lester, of Hinds county, and he was consulted by Lester several times during the late campaign, but he never heard of duplicate keys for ballot-boxes until he read the statement made by Lester before this committee and members of the Hinds County Dem ocratic Committee deny the existence of such keys and have expressed a desire to testify to that effect. Ook Daiby Intbrests.— At the meeting of the Western Reserve Dairy men's Association, held recently at Garrstsville, Ohio, Mr. Sherman Tra cey, of Philadelphia, delivered the annual address, in which he furnished seme interesting statistics concerning the dairy products of the United States. He stated that in 1875 there were in this country about 10,800,000 milch cows which at $45 per head re presented a capital of $450,000,000. in the same year there were manufactur ed 203,868,384 lbs. of cheese, 625,191, 219 lbs, ot butter and 326,500,590 gal lons of milk were sold. Besides this an eno-mous quantity of milk was con sumed in families,of which no acconiit can be taken,but evidently four times the quantity noted as sold, which would make the total quantity con sumed and sold 1,302,002,396 gallons. This would make the probable yearly yield of the cow in butter,cheese etc., as follows: Cheese, 203,689.384 lbs., at 12 cents per lb., $24,440,326; butter 625 191,219 lbs.,at 22 cents per lb.,$137, _ .068; milk, 1,302,002,396 gallons, at 8 cents per gallon, $104,160.191, and 9,000,000 calves, at $1 per head, $9, 000,001). Total, $275,142,585, as the annual product of our dairy inter ests. 541 _,, __ , At the discussions of the Western New ^ a(l i 3 öen muc h more destructive the past sea-son than usual to the apple crop. \y m . otis, of Rochester, said he had not seen a perfect apple this year.

Our Washington Letter* From our regular correspondent. Washington, Fnb. 23,1877. Arbitration, or trial by ballot in stead of by bullet, although its ezis tence lu a rudimental form is almos coeval with man, bas not, untlt modern times, been reduced to form, and made a part of state machinery. In the settlement of political disputes It is a convenience but not a necessity. The opposing parties ins ead of trying to convitnce in the old barbaric bloody way that each is stronger and has a larger number of adherents than the other, make an enumeration at the polls, the dispute is settled peaceably, as the saying is, the minority retiies from the field, and the men and policy of the majority make the history of the state until the nextcompetatlve enum : eration. Doubtless this system Is a great gain for humanity, and, when carried out in perfect faith and fairness it is the humane way for the settlement of differences between peoples. But, it is new. It is,at best,an experiment. It is by no means certain that it will prove universally efficacious. There has recently occurred much, in this country, to bring it into contempt. The very essense of trial by fairness and good faith. F force must be strictly eliminated. But, as a people grows in wealth and popu lation, as the complicatione of modern financial systems, and the conflicting interests of commerce and class in crease, they have a tendency to ob scure the vital questions of the greatest good of the largest number, and class and capital teek at the polls ends that are not national. The party In power controling the army, navy, civil ser vice, and public funds, exercises, in various ways,an undue influence over the ballot, and,awing the recent great ly extended perview of Government, through the enlargement of the civil service, and Illegal use of the army, It has done much to thwart a fair expres sion at the polls. With all these powerful intrenched hostile influences against which it was compelled to contend,how remarkable and emphatic was the recent Democra tic victory. It meant the utter defeat of the Republican party and policy, any effort to keep it in power, no matter by what forms or in what places the effort may be sanctified, is a high handed subversion of the very founda tion of our governmental system—the will of the people making an appeal to the old heroic method excusable, if not a duty. "If there is law for fraud, there is reason for violence." The question of Tilden's majority, both popular and electoral is not a matter for argument, is not a theory upon which honest men can differ. It is a question of arithmetic, and the men who denied it, be they in the Senate, in the Cabinet or on the Supreme Bench, must be called an ignoramus because it would be un parliamentary to oall him a liar. Some superanuated editors of the independent t ress who denounoe the fraud by which [ayes has been counted in, do not hesi tate to advise acquiescence in the resnlt saying that it really matters little whether it is Hayes or Tilden. In other words, that the ballot on the 7th of No vember was a meaningless pastime. If it really matters not whether it was Hayes or Tilden, it is not of the slight est importance that we shall ever ap peal to the ballot again. It ie evident that the old gentleman who enjoy tea, and, prefer above all, to take ease in inns, are more numerous now than they were ono hundred years ago. It has been s aid that it took Rome three hun dred yearsto die, but we live in a fast age, our national exit may be facilitât ed by steam, electricity, and Returning Boards. Certain it is that the politics-moral gan grene that has shown itself to such an alarming extent in the administrators in the Cabinet, and every branch of official and legislative life, has permeated the Supreme|Court, or rather it has been in - oculated there in the appointees of and from the party of moral ideas. It is doubtful what policy the democratic ma jority in the House will pursue. They by a policy of delay, prevent the in auguration of the candidate repudiated by the people or they can permit the partisan commission that has evaded the work imposed by the electoral bill to make a president of the man who with the assistance of the government, the army, the civil service, and the Treasury, was overwhelmingly defeated by the people. The majority is under no obligation to stand by their vote in favor of the bill. Fraud cancels every contract. The crime and tho oonse quence are with the conspirators with Grant, Chandler, Wells, Strong, Miller and Bradley. No people can respect themselves, the respect of other people is a minor consideration and their decay is at hand if they have not the Btomach and brawny manhood to vindicate the ideas, and men they have adopted. Their vindication is a duty they owe to themselves, and to posterity. To shrink this duty is to pave the way to villians bond's, and despot's sway. C. A. S. CARLYLE' ÔN J D AR W IN. ballot is raud and a a 1 I and of I at the not the in r A good sort of man is this Darwin, and well meaning, but with little in tellect. Ah ! it's a sad a terrible thing to see a whole generation of men and women, professing to be cultivated, looking around in a purblind fashion and finding uo God iu this universe. I suppose it is a reaction from the reign of cant and hollow pretense, profess ing to believe in what in fact they do not believe. And this is what we have got to. All things from frog spawn ; the goepol of dirt the order of the day. The older I grow—and I now staDdupon the brink of eternity— the more comes back to me the sen in the Catechism, which I tence learned when a child, and the fuller and deeper its meaning becomes : "What is the chief end of man?
