[hL'oAg0% Timor.] As ex-President Grant and President Hayes were leaving the inaugural pro cession after the ceremonies at the Capitol, this afternoon. to enter the grounds of the Executive Mansion, a little incident wholly unimportant, ex cept as showing the intense nervous ness of Mr. Hayes upon the subject of assassination, occurred. A crowd of hard-looking bystanders had scaled the iron fence separating the grounds from the treasury front, and were standing immediately inside the carriage gate way. When the gates were thrown open, the mounted guard of Metropolt tans, who were accompanying the presi dential party, were obliged to fall be hind temporarily. As the leaders of Grant's fiery team passed through the gates, one of them, champ ing with restraint, reared upon its hind feet and startled the group of by standers into some sudden gyrations. Hayes had tot observed the rearing of the horse because he could not see ahead, but he saw this sudden and sin gular movement among the knot of spectators. Quick as lightning he ducked his head and threw himself partly over upon the ex President, and uttered a low excla mation inaudible to the Times repre sentative, who stood on the. sidewalk outside the gates. Grant gave a sharp, short order to the driver, and in a sec ond the four horses sped up the grav eled circle at a keen canter. Stopping at the rotunda the gentlemen alighted from the carriage and walked with much haste into the building. This in cident doubtless heightened the appre hensions of the President's family, and the exclamation of one of the ladies of the household to-night, elsewhere noted, was but an expression of the fear thus created. A QUO WAIKrANTO CASE. The St. Louts Charter Contest Decided. [st.

President Real Estate and Taxpayers' Union: Dear bir--Having read in the morn.

I find, with regret, that you have fallen into an error common to all uninformed writers upon the subject. You assume all the expense connected with the maintenance and keeping of prisoners in the Parish Prison to be the purchase, at large contract prioes of the raw material of food. An examina tion of the bill now before the Legisla ture will show you that the 8herli, by its provisions, has to feed, guard, clothe and transport to Balton Rouge prisoners, purchase beds, bedding, blankets, handcuffs, shackles, fuel, medicine, brooms, buckets, sand, disin footants, dishes, stoves, cooking uten slls etc., for the Parish Prison, and feed and pay thirty-one officers con nected with the prison, provide for the slok in the hospital, and moot every other expense connected with the proper keeping of a prison, all for for v cents per day for each man. It you, or any other gentleman who desire to, write fairly and understandingly upon I this subject, will call at my oliclo, I will furnlsh a dlotailod staternmet-such as I t have furnished the Mayor and City Counell and the 8pe(olal Committee on lty Affairs of the House of ltopresen tatives, and the C(ommittee on tetrench ment and Reform of the teunate -of the t ex ense incurred In keeping and main. tahing prisoners in thle Parish Prison.

Hewitt resigned his p)ositlon as chairman of the Demo cratio National Committee in a letter of considerable length, in which he asserts that the result of the Electoral bill has disappointed the hopes of every lover of the country, and that the grievous wrong has been perpetrated of award ing the presidency to a candidate who has no just title to Its honors. HewItt defends ris action upon that bill. Reo gardlng his assen' to the completion of the count, he says that, as an honorable man, no other course was open to hilm ; but, if honor had permitted other wise, his judgment was that it was the wisest course for the country, as well as for the Democratic party, to pIroceed in accordance with the law to the orderly completion of the count, although they knew it would result In the installation of Hayes. He recited his opinion that disastrous consequences would have re suited from the defeat of the count, re sulting eventually in civil war, and to him appeared on one side anarchy and civil war, and on the other peace and order. He says, in the conclusion of his letter : "Under the circumstances, I could not hesitate as to my course. I felt that as a patriot and trusted servant of the Democracy no other course was left open to me, and 1 feel sure its wisdom will be viudicated by the early and tri umphant success of the Democratic party, standing as it does tpon the rock of justice ani patriotism, from which no amount of passion or provo cation has been able to iovo it. For myself, I feel that I have now comple ted the duty which was assigned me at St. Louis. The result of the campaign was the unquestionable election of our candidates. That they and the people have been defrauded of their rights is true; but for this result I do not hold myself any more responsible than any other member of Congress upon whom rested the duty of counting and de claring the votes." TIlE EX-PRIIEII:DENT. Grant's Review of lls Government. [N. Y. Herald.] Reverting to the eight years of his exercise of the executive functions of the Government, President Grant said that the question upon which he most rested the place of his administration in history were well known and had already stood the test. When he enter ed the Presidential office he said, he found the condition of things most un satisfactory. Taking a retrospect of the success which attended his efforts in this direction, the President said that he was satisfied with the result accom plished. In regard to his Southern policy he said that his wish was always to secure a free exercise of the election franchise to every class of citizens, and to sup press every kind of violence against the rights of every citizen within the South ern borders. In this he admitted that there was still much to be done, and he felt that there was much to perpetuate the state of feeling which has existed in 1 the South, but that he could see even A now in the near future wiser counsel prevailing in the Southern States than had the ascendancy during his adminis tration. This was evidenced, he e thought, in the action of the Southern i Democrats of weight and influence in the disposition of the presidential ques tion. BOTH blDE% HAPPIER.

The Republi cans rejoice that they have tided their man over the rough ways and have him safely in the city. He and his family ire the guests of Senator and Mrs. Sher man. C The Democrats are cheerful because t they think that, though defeated, they c coupy a higher position than the suc- p iessful party. Ben Hill and other t. Southern statesmen feel that they can p sow cry quits with their former adver- v caries, whom they have laid under deep c )blgation. 11 t-is due to the wisdom and patience f ft the Southern men that a deadly oon h hot is not now raging, instead of the a ae that all hope to keep. _Not all d -that wue m l o NEWS BY MAIL.

After tendering their respects, the club assembled in the main corridor, opposite the door of the Blue Parlor, and sang a number of songs. At the close of the second song, Mrs. Hayes made a special request for several of her favorite songs. Among them was " Let the Lower Lights be Burning," written and composed by the late P. P1.

This song was exquisitely rendered by the club, and elicited loud applause from the guests assembled in the Rted Parlor.

In respect to Louisiana affairs it is probable that nothing will be done till after the new Cabinet shall be selected, and that then there will be a committee of competent gentlemen sent down to Louisiana to examine into the condition of affairs there and to report thereon to the President. There is no danger of such a committee favoring the recognition of Packard but there Is danger that, being hlopublloan politicians, they I will endeavor to extort concessions t from the Nicholls Legislature in re speot to the choice of United States Senators, in return for favoring the Nicholls government. Such conces sione and stlpulations would be alike improper ant unnecessary. All that the people of Louisiana have to do is to stand firm, and it is certain that the I Nicholls government will be recognised. C Public opinion would never sustain the I use of troops to uphold Packard and ' the carpet-baggers, and it is certain v that President Hayes has lately ex- t pressed his purpose, in the most ern- , phatic manner, to disca rd the bayonet 0 policy, which has been Packitrd's chief H support. b Tle Nilholml GoEvernment 3l stre to 0 tave U~ltimate C;ontrol.

I What a Part of Mr. Hayes' Inaugural Ad- c dress Means-A Sop to the boath. n WASHINoTON, March 5. - The com- ' ments made upon the inaugural address if of Mr. Hayes by Southern Democrats o vary as the members are affected by the fi subsidy question. It is evident that the ti subsidy business is to form an impor- c' tant part in Hayes' Southern proselyt- h ing scheme. The following paragraph w at the close of that portion of the ad- b dress devotes to the Southern question o is an open bid for the support of the h Texas Pacific Railroad and Brazilian u steamship subsidy jobs. He said : bi "In the important work of restoring i the South, it is not the political situa- o0 tion alone that merits attention. The P material development of that section o0 of the country has been arrested by the iT social and poll ical revolution through 1f which it has passed, and now needs and hi deserves the considerate care of the na- in tional government within the just limits ni prescribed by the constitution and wise ci public economy." be If this does not mean a hundred mil- w lions for Tom Scott's job, and big ap propriations annually for all other o schemes, like the Brazilian steamship O, line, the Mississippi levees, and river .a and harbor improvements, it does not Ie mean anyhng. The paragraph abou - bie aoeris iaMGt~~i9Pyruniut or o, certainly big bids for the Southern Do m. e ocrats of the jobbing class. But will if they take with the body of the 0ours o era people?

WASHINGTON, March r.-The condl tion of Louisiana affairs remains I= r status quo so far as the action of the / new administration is concerned. The Louisiana delegation of Demoorait seemed to be waiting for the inaugura. address before making any effort to eb tain any conference with Mr. Hayes. They will visit him to-morrow howevr The tone of the inaugural has gltve them and other Southern Congress men great encouragement. Interviews were had with about twenty.fire South. ern Democrats since its delivery and they all concur In'the opinion that it Mr. Hayes adheres to his indloated polloy, hisle Administration will meet the approval and support of the Southern people. Mr. Ellis. or Lulslana, said to-day that if the President carried out these pledges, and did not interfere be. tween the two governments of Lsulsl ana and South Carolina, the Nicholls and Hampton government, would pro. vail. He was strenthened in the belief that Hayes would not change the po licy, by the indications that Hayes intended to gather about him as mem bers of his Cabinet such men as Evarts, 8uhurz, MoUrary, and even Sherman, and to give to Bristow the vacancy made by Judge Davis, all of whom hal favored a conservative policy toward the South. Mr. illis did not expect that Mr. Hayes would take so decided a step as to recognize either Government but believed that he would simply reakirn G(en. Grant's position, and let the State governments alone requiring the troops to preserve the peace in case of any attempt at violence. "Home peo ple, said Mr. Ellis, claim that Hayes cannot recognize Nicholls, and that he must sustain Packard, be cause the same hands that conferred eower upon him, the Returning Board, have also assumed to confer power upon Packard. I believe that Hayes will answer tles by saying that he finds the Nicholls government to be the defact, government, the government which commands the loyalty and respect of the malority of the people, especially the taxpaying portion of them. He will say the same thing of the Hampton gov ernment." A REVIVAL. S A REVIVAL. n The Carpet-*Baggers eMpondesnt and the (Coluntry Expectanst. 1[ (Correepondenoe New York Herald.] o WAsuIIIINTO, March &.-The carpet 0 baggers are in a dolorous mood, but not ,. entirely without hope. They have lost, d their best friends, which makes them 1. sad. They see that they must lose Louisiana and South Carolina and per haps a great deal more; but they mean to drive a bargain, upon condition that. ' they shall be taken care of. Mr. Kel logg expects Mr. Packard and himself, and a good many others, to be "taken t- care of." and in short, they hope to have At other offices if they must give up those *. they have too long held. I In one point the President seems curiously enough to have spoken the d mind of almost all Northern Iepubli. I cans, and that is in the matter of a t change in the Southern policy. It Is a surprising to hear how general is the approval here just now of such a change. , atatesmen who were supposed to have viewed with the greatest favor the 3 maintenance of the Chamberlain and I Packard governments are found to have of late studied this question deeply and to have come to precisely the Proel Sdent's conclusions. The carpet-baggers have lost many of their oldest and best t friends within a few days, and go about In Ihourning. On the whole there is a more bracing atmosphere in Washington than for some time past. People , talk as though they were returning to reason on several subjects. One hears that a resumption of specie payments would be a good thing-and hears it in unex pected quarters-and there are even people who confess that "the best civil service on the planet" has been a little run into the ground, and might be irn proved. How long it will last no one can tell but for the present it looks as though virtue and good sense might even become fashionable, which they have not been for some time. But there is more or less growling in private which is not unnatural. A sudden sad violent change in habits cannot be en tirely pleasant, even if the change is for the better. VETERISA R.

Tribunes.] The excitement whieh was aroused in the stables a month ago by the appear ance of a new horse disease with some thing of the nature of cerebro-spieal meningitis, has been greatly allayed by the uncontagious character of the com plaint. In most of the rarge stables in New York it is denied that any of the horses are sick with this disease. The Broadway street car line has had five cases, but the horses were attacaed a. month ago, and are now convalescent. The other car lines have escaped, but a few oases have been heard in their offices of private horses suffering from the complaint. Outside of this disease, there has been considerable suffering among horses. Tne heavy snows of the past winter, which made necessary "don bling up"-much dreaded by the owners of horses-have made it a peculiarly hard season. The reason why doubling up" comes so hard upon the horses is because only a few drivers can properly manage four horse teams, and the strain of the load falls upon thb most honest pair, who suffer accordingly. Officers of the street car companies declare that in this way the wear and tear in 'horse flesh was almost incalculable during the heavy season, and the horses are suffer ing and dying in consequence in great numbers. The veterinary surgeons de clare the cerebro-spinal complaint tA. be the effects of the severity of the winter. fWhe give thanks to Dr. Warren Brike a or shazitr nospioul Mssel (osese ewr Orlbeanso in taons t stsead h ng amen irsst las de.
