SMotion to Seat Kellogg Defeated by Ten Majority. lsIr aptnre Between Hayes and the Rad , Ical Wins of his Phrty Complete. e Democrats Masters of the Situation. Without their Support Hayes' Ad. mlinistration will eo Hope-, lessly Beaten. [pcolal to the N. O. Domnorat.1 WASTHINTON, March 7.-The Cabinet ate I sent you this morning was right, 4eept that Devins and MeCrary chang ~4d places; tpe latter being nominated forthe War Iepartment and the former jfor Attorney General, instead of nice r.s8a, as stated in my early dispatch. The vbte on the reference of Kellogg's : .redentials was about a fair test of the strength of Hayes' Southern policy in 'the Senate, alid, in fact, a tolerably fair .ut of his general strength. He will -e supported by all the Democrats and lbp six to eight Republicans, and o4ip by the rest of the Radicals, wcth. hwldU give his administra *lon a majority of from eight to waJvo In open Senate. But his Itoh ientirely in the hands of the Dem .serafa. If they stand aside, Blaine and ilgorton would devour Hayes in twenty r:rOU hours. The only possible'danger rist that Blaine and Morton may be able t~ whip their whole caucus strength jato the anti-Hayes traces, in which event they would beat and overthrow baim and force him into compliance with hhetir hellish designs. This, however, is wory improbable. The vote on Blaine's resolution to admit Kellogg was 25 yeas, 35 nays; the vote to refer the credentials to the Com : mittee, after the defeat of the resolu don to admit, was 42 to 21. The 25 to 35 .vote was the test. The caucusses to.arrange the commit toteeo to-morrow will settle the whole &.question. It is not improbable that the . [ayes' Republicans may secede from ° the Radical caucus and join with the SDemocrats in reconstructing the Senate wommittees on a new basis. If this be 'onae, the anti-lHayes Radicals will be i:tat.ntly thrown into permanent and h~elpless minority. The Democrats arc, y at all events, thoroughly masters of the Sasituation, and can either sustain Hayes or let him fall into the clutches of Blsine and Morton, as they see fit. SGreat excitement prevails here, and rupture between Hayes and the Radical wing of his party is complete. L ,+ DUEL. ANO lllER CONFERENCE. iyes Will Never Use Troops t) Put Any Man in a Gubernatorial Chair. The Bloody-Shirt Men Begin a War Against the South on Kellogg's Credentlals and are Bouted. [.peolal to N. O. Democrat.] ' i.. LiOrTON, March 7.-A conference ' r held to-day between Hayes and one 4"the Louisiana Congressmen, at which It is laid Hayes talked at some length a fp his proposed Southern policy, and dolared emphatically that under no Ieumstances would he ever be induced Itoe. d troops to foist Packard or any .other person into office over an unwil M'g-people, and that he should consider .io person worthy of holding the office 4: Governor who could not maintain :idtmat in it and carry out and enforce '~blaws thoroughly. ..here is not the least foundation for Sth rumors that the Republicans lay ~tm to two or even one Senator, as a of compromise or agreement. claim has ever been made by Slass of Republicans-the ultra 4epubleans refusing to enter into any o)rt 4 arrangement at all, and the con 4'rvative Republicans determined to let the case of Louisiana rest on its own ,merits, and not make it a mere bargain The ultra Radicals made a fierce fight t.-day on the seating of Kellogg, be Tieing that if this could be done they ould pave the way to the recognition SPackard, and indeed force Hayes to rxeognize the latter. Their chief argu ~ t was that Kellogg having no con Netant claiming his seat, should be ted on a prima facie case. They ' a attempted to draw a parallel be Lamar and Kellogg, and insisted ~ both should be seated, subject to i: aeo and Morton led the Radical tores and showed a fierce and bitter , adneaPa tion to continue their fight i.i the South and Hayes' Southern d hbinaelft the leaadr an able argument in favor of referring Kellogg's credentials to the Committee on Elections and Qualifications. He was assisted by all the Conservative Republicans-Christlancy, of Michi gan; Paddock, of Nebraska; Booth, of California, and others. Several other Bepublicans, usually believed bloody shirt men, joined in the debate. In their first fight with the Administration the bloody shirt Radicals were badly routed, and Kellogg's credentials re ferred to the committee as proposed, by a vote of 35 to 25. Southern men here are much elated over this victory, as it shows that the administration can command sufficient Senators to enable it to pursue its Southern policy, unchecked by an inim ical and hostile Senate. Conkling has constituted himself the leader of the administration party, as yet, but it is probable that Stanley Mathews, who is expected to be elected by the Ohio Legislature to fill the vacancy to be created by Sherman's resignation, will occupy that position, as he is known to be more in the confi donco of Hayes than any other man.

Weber for the last few days has been walking our streets, armed with a shotgun, and in a defiant way threatening many of our citizens. He was shot to-day and instantly killed, as he was passing the courthouse. The coroner's inquest fails to develop any particulars this evening, and has adjourned until 2 p. m. to-mor row. VIDETTE. THE CABINET. Dissatisfaction of the Radical Leaders. WANmHNOTOw, March 7.-The follow ing Cabinet has been sent in: Evarts, State Department; Sherman, Treasury; McCrary, of Iowa, War; Thompson, of Indiana, Navy; Key, of Tennessee, Postmaster General: Devins, of Massa chusetts, Attorney General; Carl Schurz, Secretary of Interior. Neither Blaine, Morton, Conkliig, nor anybody is satisfied. The Policy of the Administration. The administration leader In the Sen ate is not yet indicated. It may be Stanley Matthews who is to tucceed Sherman. Should hayes, by disregard ing the uledges of his messages, fail to pacify Louisiana and South Carolina, his administration will open with de plorable difficulties. His only safety is thought to cling to the coalition which, having the safety of these States in view, forced the count of the electoral vote to issue before the 4th of March. Honor and safety urge him to fullfil the pledges made for him by his managers. CHAMBERLAIN. lie is Aavlsed to Reulgan. WASHINGTON, March 7.-It is stated that a letter has been written to Gov. Chamberlain by a prominent friend of President Hayes, (Stanley Matthews), and indorsed by another friend, (Wm. M. Evarts), intimating that Gov. Cham berlain's resignation would be accepta ble. GEN. fANKS. His Interview with the President. WASHINUTON, March 7.-Gen. Banks, of the House South Carolina Investi gating Committee, and the United States Marshal for South Carolina called upon President Hayes this morn ing and had a brief conversation upon the political situation in that State. The President stated to. Gen. Banks tihat he would have to excuse any ex pression of views on that subject at this time, as he had determined to take some days for its fulfconsideration, and not to act until conferring with his Cabinet; that he would then deal with the subject in both South Carolina and Louisiana. A BIG FIRE. Half a Million of Dollars of Property Destroyed. NEw YORK, March 7.-Nos. 13 and 15 Bond street burned. Loss $500,000. The whole building was occupied by dealers and manufacturers of watches, jewelry and plate. The greater part of the merchandise locked up in the safes may be safe. The Gorham Manufacturing Company ocou pied a portion of the building; their loss is heavy. - FOREIGN. IGNATIEFF'S ]ISSION. The English Press Disapproves of It LONDON March 7.-The English press of yesterday are unanimous in disap proving of the project which is believed to be the basis of Gen. Ignatieff's mis sion. The prevailing sentiment is, that it would be unwise to purchase the de mobilization of the Russian army by a practical surrender of the treaty of Paris, and concession to Russia of a future right to establish a protectorate over Turkey's European provinces. Even if Turkey were able to work out satisfactory reforms, Russia or Russian societies would not give her an oppor tunity. A Change of Policy. [From the Fost.] The Pope has lately given the clerical electors in Italy permission to vote, " provided they protest in open day be fore men that they will remain faithful to the law of God and of the Church." This is an important concession, as hitherto voting has always been for bidden. The bishops have always been permitted by the office of the inquisi tion to apply for the recognition of their authority by the government. ,The Vatican forbade their doing so, but it hl fauad tespggle nonv s K[rom Our Evening Edition of Yesterdasy.] THE CABINET.

McCrary, the now Attorney General, has already expressed the opinion that the Nicholls Government is the legal Government of Louisiana. The Cabinet will be strongly in favor of us. Pay no attention to rumors. There is not the slightest danger of Packard's recognition. Blaine has broken out against the Administration's Southern policy, but Hayes is as firm as a rock. He said yesterday that his policy was irrevoca ble, whatever might be the conse quences. A big split in the Repub lican party is inevitable. ALIBERT C. JAtNIN.

Iayes' First Appearance in Washlngton. LOhicsgo Times.] WASHIUIGTON, March 2.-Senator Sher man and wife entertained at dinner, in honor of their Presidential guest, to night, a of Ohio people, onaist berger and ladies. Many visitors called at tne Sherman residence, both before and after tea, to tender congratulations. They were nearly all permitted to see Hayes. Some, however, were pre vented by the crowd who thronged the door of the residence. A stal wart policeman was stationed near the front door. Three ushers received the visitors and conducted them into the presence of Mr. Haves. At half-past 8 a large delegation of Illi nois Republicans, headed by Senator Oglesby, called upon the President elect and were introduced. Among this num ber were Representatives Burchard and Hurlbut and Senator Logan. In the re ception to-night Mrs. Hayes was assisted by Mrs. Justice Swayne and Mrs. Sena tor Sherman, Senator Sherman intro ducing the callers. It was entirely an informal affair. A son of Mr. Hayes stated that this crowd of visitors had scarcely been anticipated, but was highly gratifying to his father. On account of the press of visitors, no con versations of political significance, so far as could be ascertained, took place. Senator Sherman had in a side room some wine and whisky of very good quality with which many of the gentle men regaled themselves. The Senator himself drank a little wine only. The President-elect drank no whisky, but, like Sherman. partook lightly of wines. At 9 a special artist of The London Illustraled News made a sketch of this interesting little extempore reception. Hayes kept himself very quiet through out the evening, conversing only in a general way upon political topics, and a little more particularly in a social way. lie plainly shows the embarrassment of his new po sition, and does not trust his tongue as he would at the Buckeye capital or his home town. The manner of Mrs. Hayes is amiable, but not brilliant. She 'is apparently a woman of good sense and winning ways. The most noticeable feature is her matronly and unostenta tious bearing. A number of ladies who have met her since her arrival to-day are much pleased with the social pros pect at the White House in the new ad ministration. Hayes exhibits far greater affability than Grant as a receiver. There is some variety and a small amount of blunt and somewhat coarse wit in his greetings. THE FATHERLAND. The German Government Removiag a Hardhhlp from Its nubjects In Amer eIca. (N. Y. Fnn.] According to the conscription laws of Germany every youth upon attaining his twentieth birthday is required to enter the army and serve three years. This does not apply alone to those re siding in the mother country, but also to those of German birth who have not been expatriated, but whose business or inclination has called them abroad. For some time past many young Ger mans who had not become denational ized, and therefore were liable to con scription, have, upon attaining the re quired age, crossed the ocean and pre sented themselves before their respec tive district "befehlshaber" for enlist ment in the "landwehr," but in many instances only to find themselves re jected on account of physical disability. Thus they had the expenses of a useless and costly trip thrown upon them in their desire to obey the laws of the fatherland. To obviate this, the German government some time since instructed their repre sentative in this country to appoint a medical examiner to pass upon the physical condition of those who should present present themselves for military duty. To this position Dr. Tellkoppf has been appointed. Yesterday, before the German Con sul, Mr. Fred. Hinckel, appeared seven young men ready to serve their time. They were examined by the doctor in the presence of the Consul, as the law directs, and five were passed. They will take the next German steamer for their native land. TIRE REMOVAL OF TROOP8. Our Congressmen Want to Know Why It Has Not Been Done. [Courier-Journal. ] WASHING'rON, March 4.-There has been no change in Louisiana affairs since Saturday. Rumors sre circulated every few hours of violence in New Or leans, and of attacks made on the State House; but all the dispatches from that city represent it as quiet and peaceful, and these rumors are evidently con cocted for the purpose of aiding the opponents to President Grant's instruc tions. Great surprise is manifested that the President should have as sured the Louisiana delegation ex plicitly, prior to the decision of the electoral count, that he would issue instructions under which Gen eral Augur would withdraw the troops from Packard's support, rescind ing the orders preserving the status quo, and that he permitted Augur and others to put a different construction on the instructions which were sent. The President's failure to enforce the action indicated in the authorized statement telegraphed to Gov. Nich lls excites the suspicion with some that the whole matter was a trick. Upon inquiry, how ever, of the Louisiana representatives, they seem to feel assured that the guar antees given will be adhered to. Messrs. R. L. Gibson, E. John Ellis and Wm, M. Levy sent on Saturday the following message to the President: We beg leave respectfully to inform the President that the troops have not been withdrawn from the streets and .vicinity of the State-House in New Or leans, in compliance with his orders. We suggest to the President that it is due to himself and the assurances given to us by him that the instructions, if misunderstood, be made more explicit, so that the troops may be withdrawn from the support of Packard. Pilot Walsh Tenley, of the Golden City, has invented a toe-trigger, which is now in use in the pilot-house of that steamer. The trigger is of great ser vice to the pilot, and an advantage to boats with large wheels, as in crossing from one side to the- other when work ing hard down on the wheel it kee the wheel in elace. until the I o the Ua a ow seham INAUGUItAlION DA)Y. When Muttering Heavens some Sad Drops Wept, etc. The ttrength of the Administration Lies in Rutherford's Household. Deacon Smith Portrayed---.S Word about Judge Black. [Special Correspondent N. O. Democrat.] WAsHINGTON, March 3, 1877. If there is any portent in the sky or augury in the heavens, the advent in Washington of the first President who was not elected by the people must be called inauspicious. The count-in was completed about daylight Friday morn ing, and a little after nine the benefi ciary thereof arrived at Col. Tom Scott's depot. Thursday had been bright and pleasant, as had been twenty or thirty I days before it. To-day, which is Satur day, is bright and joyous too. But yesterday--the Friday which witnessed at once the completion of the long and wicked count-in, the consummation of the most desperate political con spiracy recorded in history since the monsters of the French "Mountain" conspired ninety years ago, and the coming of the Great Unelected to the seat of his ill-got power-this Friday was as dismal a day as is ever seen in the climate of Washington. No one who has ever seen a dismal day in Washington needs telling what sort of an experience it is. But there are those who may like to know: A low, dull, leaden sky of clammy clouds that seem to press the atmosphere close down against the earth and the malaria in through every pore of the system; a fine, dense rain, with a peculiar quality of stickiness and greasiness aboutat, not seen of any other rain that tills upon the face of the earth; so dank that it blackens the asphalt pavements, and so wet that it saturates the brick walls, until the houses actually look LIMP AND BEDRAGGLED. No day is so dismal as a rainy day in Washington in winter time. Well, on such a day, and under such skies, the Count-in was ended and the Counted-in arrived. There was nothing remark able il the scene at the depot. The chief stare of the curious, who had braved the storm, was directed at Mrs. Hayes, who seemed a little flurried by her dreary introduction to Washington, and at the THREE PRETTY CI ILDREN who are to assist in making that great old barn of a White House homelike. It is fortunate for the men who.-e done this job; fortunate fiW who accepts its proceeds from their hands; azd, perchance, fortunate for the country, that the President who was not elected is calculated to disarm hatred by his geniality and to avert contempt by his abounding good tem per while his domestic surroundings will prove among the most amiable and graceful that ever dispensed the hospitalities of the national mansion. People unconversant with the ways of Washington have very little idea what part of the fortunes of an administra tion hinges upon the social flavor and TONE OF THE WHITE HOUSE. This will be the strong point of the Hayes administration; for whatever may be the defects in MtIr. Hayes' title to the occupancy of the White House, there has never been within its walls a more companionable man than he is, in all the best senses of that term, nor has there ever been a woman more thor oughly mistress of the science of mak ing, or of the art of adorning a home, than his wife is. So let me say, by way of warning, to those of my friends who are girding on their armor for a four years' onslaught upon the fraudulent President and a four years' war upon the colossal fraud of which his presi dency is the fruit-that, fiercely as the tempest of wrath may beat against the White House walls from without, there t will always be within them that calm sunshine of a pleasant woman's face which, as the fable tells us, may sub due the tempest; and one of the most unassailable of the defences of this base-born and ill-starred regime, will be the TACT OF THE LOVELY WOMAN upon whom devolves its all-important I domestic responsibilities. To-day I saw in the lobby of Willard's I Hotel a remarkable figure. I at once I discovered that it was a man. The alti tude of this figure was about five feet 1 seven and one-fourth inches. It had I evidently been higher but exceeding ! weight of the cares and responsibilities I which are inseparable from a truly good life in this wicked world, had produced a slight aberration of the lower limbs 1 from the perpendicular, which is fast 4 ceasing to be a mere aberration and is rapidly becoming a pronounced case of curvature. The body of this remarka ble figure was of remarkable length, 4 and suggested that the Creator had found it necessary to locate the dia phragm several inches lower down than usual, in order to afford room for the 4 extraordinary development of true goodness which is known to exist in the bosom of this wonderful personage. The head was of a peculiar cast, being of remarkable length on a line drawn from the chin to the crown, and of equally remarkable delicacy of struc ture on a transverse line drawn from the eyebrows to the centre of the cere bellum. The front view was rather amiable and indicative of true goodness than massive or intellectual, but the .profile was strictly classical-with the singl6 exception of the nose, which was a trifle retrousse. The tout ensemble was that of a sturdy patriot who values nothing e- highly as the rights which have been bequeathed to us by the Fa thers, and whose nature is incapable of a harsh sentiment, except towards those wicked men who succeed by guile. An irreverent and short-sighted news paper man, whobtood near me, inquired, ' Who is that little, red-headed, bow eSir," Ireplied, with as much severity of manner as I am capable of, " that gentleman is - -V..i one of the handsomest, if not the hand somest, man in the United States." "Ah," rejoined the newspaper man, ' I have often read in the Sun that Deacon Richard Smith was very hand some, and that his personal beauty was of the most exalted type, because it was in the nature of a triumph of moral perfection over bodily defects. Now I1 realize for the first time the strength of the Sun's position." "I assured my friend that he was quite right, and left him meditating upon the unrivaled BEAUTY OF TRUE OODNEB.F. I have already written of the philos ophy and the comedy of the situation. It was reserved for Judge Black to give to this sickening picture of fraud ant of rapine on the one side: and of pusil lanimity and surrender on the other, which has just been framed in the White House, those finishing touches of pathos which alone rescue it from utter repulsiveness. Maybe I am too sentimental for practical politics. Maybe the average caucus thimble rieger of the day could not see between the words of the old Judge fitful glimpses of the flitting ghost of a pa triotism that was dead, and could not hear breathed through his passionate elocution the soft requiem of hopes that had fled; but I could. One of these days our great-grandchildren will find that little speech in history. Maybe they will learn, amid new institutions and under other political skies, that JUDGE BLACK was an heretic; for it is not so certain that the doctrines of our great-grand fathers will not have become heresy in the eyes of our great-grandchildren. But you know the sublimest eloquehos which has comedown to us in the Latin tongue di not come from the lips of the conquering Roman. That last echq of despair; that final wail of fruitless pluck and bootless courage on which Tacitus has conferred the immortality of his matchless fancy, came from A victim of Roman rapine: " Ubique sas i:olitudinem faciunt, pacem appellant." Maybe, one of these dafs. the subjects of an empire will read Judge Black's speech as the Romans used to read the speech of Galgacus to that remnant of his Britons who had escaped the sword of Cu.sar and the rapine of Agricola. A. C. B. OU'rtl CAROLINA. South Carolina Must Enjoy the saue Rlghts as the Other states. [Special to the N.Y. Herald.] COLUMBIA, March 3.-Having foward ed to the Herald yesterday the views of Gov. Chamberlain upon the declaration of Hayes as President, Gov. Hampton being then inaccessible, I called to-day upon the latter and propounded to him in effect the same questions that I put to his gubernatorial rival. Hampton having a government and a good deal" of business to attend to, it was some tirs before I could engage his atten tion and even then he reluctantly con sented to a very brief interview. He displayed the courtesy of a gentleman, the bt'usquedeas of the soldier, and tbes ingenuouanesb of a noi'k In po = This was the conversation thabs place: "How will Mr. Hayes' electlbM..1 6 garded by the South ?" "I think that, though disappointed in the result, the Southern people will recognize him promptly, will judge him fairly by his acts, and will not embar rass his administration by factious op position. If he deals justly with t$, will stand on the constitution and will accord us all of our rights he will Ih honestly sustained, and will not be em barrassed either by hostility on thtb One hand or by office-seekers on the other." "Do you expect recognition from him of your government?" "I certainly do, for I claim that mtfia is the only lawfully authorized govern ment in this State-the only one that can enforce the law and give protection.. As Mr. Hayes is pledged to obey the constitution of the country I confidently hope that he will not allow its most sacred provisions to be violated in this State." "What do you think should be his" policy toward the South?" "Strict and impartial justice, placing us on an equality with the other States~ requiring from us a full obedience to the laws, and giving to us the ri .,i possessed by all other States, to reg our affairs without Federal inte..er.. ence. This policy will be in acoordaue:' with his letter of acceptance of the nomination for President, where h K, says 'the great need of the South is fi telligent and honest local government, in which the rights of all will be re spected by all. If elected President I will endeavor by all legitimate ageTees. to further the establishment of hone.rt and intelligent local government in th Southern States.' If he fulfills th. solemn pledge he will do much to comr-. mend him to our people, and he wtlI~ - best promote the interests of the whoin country." country." When Gov. Hampton had said tbhi much, Judge Mackey, who visited MiJ; Hayes at Columbus some months agrE . came in and interrupted the conversa tion. I heard the distinguished Ju$g remark that he was going to Washi. ton to participate in the inauguratle of Hayes, and I believe that he 'asked Hampton for another letter. * A FLORAL EARLE.
