Oat Gibson's action is sufficiently .,explained on the ground that, after rnrkling's speech, many who had hitherto believed it, good policy to elect Soenator immediately to contest Kel togg, concluded that, in view of the im possibility of Kellogg being seated, it would be well to wait until the Logisla ture was organized on a basis beyond dispute before electing. It is doubtful whether Senators elected by the Nicholls' Legislature, as at present constituted, will be admitted, even though Kellogg should be ousted. Os the other band, the Democratic Saators here almost unanimously ad. ire the election of a Senator to com plete the record in the case now before the Senate. t The advice for delay comes mainly --om Republican sources, which, how ,er, are friendly to our interests, and -i aeoordance with the President's pol 'etween two such divergent advices .t may be hard for our Legisiture to deolde; but in deliberating, it dhould be borne in mind that if there is a partial danger of Kellogg being seated, it rises from the fact that he-is here with aprima facie ease, and not regularly contested by any Senater elect, holding under credentials for ~the same term.

Democrat.] WAsanroooN, March 12.--There is great ooatfusaon in our councils here relative to the advisability of the Legislature of Louisiana electing a Senator to oppose the pretensions of Kellogg. There have been some remarkable changes of opinion from day to day on this im portant point. Last Wednesday Mr. Eustis, at the seggestion of Gen. Gibson, telegraphed to Gov. Nicholls advising an immediate election of Senator; but later Gibson, Ellis and Levy joined in a telegram ad "i'ing delay. To-day other conferences hAvo been held here, and it has developed that the following Democratic Senators uncon ditionally favor an imtiedlate electron, In older to complete the record in the enufb: Eaton, Bayard, Saulsbury, Wal eoae, handolph, Thurman, McDonald, Lamar, Gordon, Jones of Florida, and Beck.

Denmocrat.] WAsagInoTO, March 12.-The Senate Committee on Elections and Qualifla tlons decided to-day to report favorably on Kellogg's credentials by a strict party vote. The chairman of this com mittee, Morton, was instructed, in ac SRidaace with this report, to introduce the following resolution, to be sub maitted to the Senate to-morrow: A' e dled, That William Pitt Kellogg Is prma facie entitled to be admitted -5_ hisest as a Senator from the State Is L.ouiaiana, and that the oath be now adminaltered to him."

There are now thirty-two Democrats and thirty-five Republican Senators in their seats, besides Davis, who will act with the Democrats on this question. This leaves the Republicans only two majority on a party vote. onkling will vote against Kellogg; this would mtak a tie, and in that event Wheeler is morally certain, in- view of the known desites of Mr. Hayes, to vote against seating Kellogg. The weight of prob ability is, however, that Christiancy, Jones of Nevada, and Edmunds would refrain from voting on the questign at all, or if they did vote, to vote against the seating of Kellogg. This would bring the vote to about my figures; that is, that Kellogg eannot get more than thirty votes at the outside on the direct question of seating him under the resolutions to be proposed by Morton's committee.

Demoorat.1 WAsmrNGTOx, March 12.-The reported resignation of Simon Cameron from the Senate is confirmed. The old man is dlisusted with the present aspect of a.its, and his soe wants to try his h#ad in the Senate Thr awhile; so old Simon resigns and orders his Logisla ture at Harrisburg to elect his son Don to succeed him. Blaine's friends are making strenuous efforts to get him into favorat.the White House. If there is any virtue in dirt eating Blaine will soon be Hayes' chief adviser. The President seems to think, judg ing from the remarks he made to day, that there is a disposition shown to crowd him on the Southern question. He did not manifest any impatience, but said, very decidedly, that he must be allowed time for so important a movement as that of withdrawing troops from Louisiana and South Carolina, and that it was better to be a little slow but sure than to take steps that might have to be retraced. There is no foundation for the rumor that the President intends to appoint Judge Spofford, of Louisiana, to sue ceed Davis on the Supreme Bench. This appointment will not be made for sev eral weeks, and has not yet been even considered by the President. BUELL. [From Our Evening Edition of Yesterday.] HAYES' SOUTHERN POLICY. The Cabinet Unanimously Indorse It. Wheeler and a lixed Committee of Dem. cerats and Republicans to Visit the Southern States and Re. port to Hayes. [Spcial to N. O. Demoorat.] WAsHINGTON, March 12.-The Cabinet held a short session this morning, at which a general and informal discus sion of the situation was had, but no special question was con sidered. The general Southern policy foreshadowed by Hayes in his inaugu ral and intimated by him in conversa tions with Penn, Gibson and others since his inauguration, meets the unani mous and cordial indorsement of the Cabinet. It cannot be accurately stated what specific steps will be taken in furtherance of this policy. It is pretty well established that as soon as the Senate adjourns, Vice Presi dent Wheeler, at the head of a mixed commission of Republicans and Democrats, will make a tour of the South with the view of ascertaining for themselves the condition of the country and the state of public feeling, and re port the same to the President.

WAsnzwOTON March l.-The Republi can closes an elaborate article on Louis iana and South Carolina with the follow ing: " However, the policy of the Ad ministration will soon be made known. As observed above, the matter will be submitted to the Cabinet to-morrow, after which the President will, no doubt, listen attentively to the suggestions of all who come to make them. He will then again counsel with his Cabinet on Friday, and after that take such steps as may be deemed expedient. POUTR CAROeLINA's OVE1RNOR. The Vlews of Ex-Gov. Seolt as to Hamp, tont's Elect on. WASnwNOTO, March 12.--Ex-Gov. Scott, of South Carolina, in a published letter, concedes Hampton's election and favors his recognition in order to secure peace and prosperity. In the course of the letter, (Gov. Scott states that the Chief Justice of the State, Moses, and his associates, Justices Wil lard and Wi ight, recognized lIampton by making requisitions on him for their salaries and accepting the money. Garfield Withdraws. Cor.UuMus, March 12.-A telegram was received here yesterday from James A. Garfield, withdrawing his name as a Senatorial candidate. THE I l'UATION. Editor Democrat-In common with your numerous readers, I fully appre oiate the firm and manly stand taken by you on the political questions of the day. On the present occasion allow me to return you my thanks for your able reply to the sophistical arguments of "A. W." It is jtnt such "exercise of patience and asplrt of tolerance " recommended by "A. W." that has strengthened our chains and left us to the mercy of our enemies inl the past. Promises do not assume performance. Deeds are better than words. As you remark, "the President understands the Louisiana case thoroughly; there is not a feature of it of which he is ignorant." Why then does the President keep soldiers here. He has the power to remove them (since by the grace of Joe Bradley he is admitted to be President) and ought instantly do it. This single step would restore peace and good order to our State and end the farce of a Packard dynasty. If it is the duty of the United States to protect and advances usurpers let, the United States honor and reward Packard. We will none of him. Every honest man in this State sickens at the name of compro mlse. Our Governor has been elected by the people and the people intend to keep) him. UOUTI.iERNItR. TilE ( EO4.IE WA"-lIIINGTON. Strong e.flnpielonI that It was Dehtr.ayed by Explosion. [N. Y. Herald.j Sr. Jon-s, N. F., March 1.-The story of the wreck of the Washington can only be surmised from the data fur nished by the date of her departure from port and the flrding of the debris and mutilated bodies on the coast. Judging from these the loss of the ship was due to causes which the most ex pert seamanship could not avert. On the 18th of January the George Wash ington left Halifax for St. Johns with a general cargo. She could scarcely have been forty-eight hours at sea when a strong breeze commenced to blow from the south and veered in a few hours to the southwest, Whether this wind had the effect of diverting the ship from her course is a question that will remain forever in doubt, as none of her passen gers or crew survive to tell the story. All that is known of her fate can be told in a few words. On the 23d and 24th of January sonm, of the inhabitants of Gulch Cove, neoa French Mistaken Point, discovered oi the bench some articles of bedding and the toilet marked in large red letters, "S. S. George Washington," and about the same time thirteen dead bodies were drawn out of a gulch into which they had been washed by the sea. Later on several fragments of human bodies were picked up--legs, arms and heads bearing unmistakable evidence of hav ing been torn violently from the trunks. The flesh on these dtsjesta membra ap peared in some cases to be parboiled, and over the faces of some of the re. covered bodies hung large pieces of scalp, while the brain protruded from every part of the battered skulls. No more is known of the awful oatasyrophe that hurried the passengers and crew of the unfortunate steamer into eternity. Harvestpllr In Louisiana. While strolling down Canal street, passing before Eyrich's window, our eye ,as attracted by a beautiful painting representing evidently a harvest scene in Louisiana, as could be easily dis cerned by the Creole look of the fif teenth amendments who are pictured as loading carts with cow-pea vines, and the admirably painted cypress trees in the background. Upon closer inspec tion we found out that the painting which had seduced our eye was Mr. Ju lio's "Harvesting Cow-Pea Vines in Louisiana." It was scarcely neces sary for the artist to name the subject of his chef d'oeuvre, as everything is so perfectly natural that there can be no mistake. We particu larly compliment Mr. Julio upon the admirable pose of the mules, the life like holding of the reins by the driver, and the "natural" of the darkey who, pitch-fork in hand, bends down to pick the cow-pea vines. The cypress trees in the back-ground are perfect, and nobody acquainted with Louisiana scenery could fail to be moved by the remarkable counterfeit. We forbear speaking of the admirable management in the coloring, for fear of shocking the modesty ef our artist. Th Q. o -El' NEWS BY MAIL. nseas of the supreme COeue Judges Larns In magry.

[,pecial to the World.j WAssIxNroNT March 8.-It has been reported that Presieent Hayes had de termined to appoint Gov. Noyes, of Ohio, to the French mission, but it is believed by those who should know that the French and English mlselons will go to other States thln Ohio. Gov. Noyes, who has been a staunch ally to Gov. Hayes, will doubtless, however, get some good thing. Gen. Bank. wanted the French mission, but has concluded not to take it now that Mas sachusette has received a Cabinet ap pointment. NEW FISHING GROUNDS. Important Diaeoverlea by Profenmsr ilind on the Coast of Labrador. [Correspondent of the World.] ST. JOHn'S, N. F., March 1.-Professor Hind, of Winudsor, Nova Scotia, visited the coast of Northern Labrador last summer, and on his return drew up a report on the fishing grounds of that region for our government. So much importance is attached to hit explora tions that our government has engagod his services for next summer, when ho will make a tmore ext ented examination of this new region, whiiih promises to yield a rich sea, hIarv t. l~'rm)ll a tah'e inserted l i hi.. reti'ort, t he Professor shows thatt Ihe area of tihe Northern Labrador fishlug groun, Is alone, ex clusive of tho bn:tks, amounts to about, five-sixths of the whole area of tih lritish arid French Iat tishory on the coast of N ewfotundltltnl, being 5200 square milics, the totl(l aret of the New foundland beat-lishery beingt 62041 square muiles. In addititlon to this, the Prefessor show('d that, outside the islands, there are nitueronus banks and shoals which form the great splring and summer feeding-gtounds of the cod. The area of this immense range of banks can not be even approximately stated. There can be little doubt that here will be the great fishing-grounds of the future. For some years the shore-fishery on these coasts has been declining, and even the Great Bank of Newfoundland is not, w~tt it was in former years. The Arctbir ic( which spreads arotlnd the Labrador coast never fails to bring a pirounial supply of fod to toh. coil, so that the fish can never be starved out, as inl other ro gions. PACIK A RIIR. The W.oluld tbe Governor lZa· Got (seek If Nothlngi Else. [.pccial to Vinciiuna, E ,iuircr.] W\ASHINGTON, March 9. -lt seems that Packard has been offered some such position as collector of the port at Now Orleans if he drops his plretences to the Governorship. A telegram to the Herald to-day states that Packard replied to such a promise that with him it was Governor or nothing. To settle the Louisiana case by recognizing Nicholls, Hayes' friends are willing to do a great deal for the Packard crowd in official patronage. Telegrams have been re ceived here to-day by the Louisiana Conservatives asking who Hayes wanted elected Senator by the Nicholls Govern ment. Ben Butler called on the President to day and gave him to understand that the Essex statesman was with him in his new policy. He said that if Blaine, Morton, or any of those who are oppos ing the President, had themselves been elected, they might declare the policy of the administration. Ben says that Hayes is in, however, and his policy must be given a trial, at least. SENATOtt EUATIC. Hile Chances and lr. Hayes' Intentions as to the Interior Department. (Special to the (korior-Journal I WAsHImN(TON, March .--Senator Eus tis, of Louisiana, who.e credentials are now before the Commuittoe on Privileges and Elect ion-. has no) R.publican o,; testant ; and the Senate haviuig dec.idcd that Pincebback, who c.laimedl this seat, was not, cho(sen senator, it would seem that Mr. Ezstis, who was elected by the legislat ure resulting from the, Wheeler compromise, ought to be admitted, but the organizat ion of the Senate commit tee gives liLtle hope of favorable action in his case. It is stated that the President con templates no change in the personnel of the minor offices of the (,overnment, except where such changes would in sure increased efficiency in the perform ance of public business. There will be some changes in the foreign missions, and a few in the consular service. In the Department of Justice, the United States marshals in the South will be most effectually overhauled. This will form part of the execution of the Presi dent's Southern poliy. The Interior Department, whjeh, from the time of its organization, has been a wide held Soorruptio will also receive ad oijjjwith his ftorto in the direction of reform, It is a large field, and it is within his pow er to make for himself a lasting reputa tion.

Pinchback says that not ottly has Mr. Packard no power in Louisiana, but if the President should recognize his government he would have to station troops in every parish of the State to put in the Packard ofit oers, and to keep them in by main force. He says that either the Nicholls gov ernment should be recognized or else the State should be put under direct and absolute military government, and he adds that if the President desires the welfare of the colored people anti their prosperity and contentment, he ought to recognize the Nicholls government. 4|1MON AND JA MEN. The aromer'ss eathere are tuffled and the Latter zlve* Up. i[peoial to Conci na.i Enquirer.] WAsHeNGTON, March 9.--Simon Cam eron is the worst plucked parrot of the lot. He don't say much, but what he does say is acid. A friend asked if he did not think it an extraordinary thing to refer the Cabinet slate to committees. The wily politician bit his lip, and with twist of the head said, " Yes, sir; yes sir; a very extraordinary thing. BuL this promises to be quite an extraordi nary administration." "What do you think of the situation ?" queried a brother Senator. "Think ?" said he " I think it's a hell of a time " This is very much the remark he made one time, when, in going to the executive departments to transsat some busi ness, he found President Grant absent at Long Branch, and all the Secretaries of the Bureau offices away on pleasure trips. Simon was remonstrated with for his harsh feelings. "Why," said a brother Sen ator, "why don't you give Hayes a chance?" "I am willing to give him a chance," was the reply; "but I don't want to see him start off surrounded by a lot of damned rascals !" There are signs to-night that Blaine is scared, and getting ready to make peace with the Administration. Inti mate friends of Blaine have been trying to imnpress leading newspaper corre spondents with t he fact that Blaine did I.ot denounce the Administration or Cabinet in either of his speeches; and Blaine himself has given out the same idea to Senators, and intimated that he was on the best of terms with all the Cainet nominees, and should only op pose) Key, and that because he did not l hiak an ex-Confederate should be al lowed to dispense patronage to the peoollo. THE BALANCE OF 'OWER. The fRepublcean MaJority Now Only Five and Likely to Fall to Two. (L eonial to the Tribune.] \VASmINoToN, March 8.--The Republl. can majority in the Senate is cut down to very slender proportions. There are at. present 38 Republican Senators, 33 Democratic Senators. and 1 Indepen dent-Judge Davis. This does not in clude Mr. Sherman, who by his confir mation to-day ceases to be a member of that body. The election of his succes sor will lncrease the Republican strength t.o 39. There are three vacancies-two from Louisiana and one from South Carolina. Should the Democrats sue coed in putting their men in these places the Republican majority would hbe only 2. This is the lowest possible figure to which it can fall during the present Congress un ess death makes changes: and it can not rise beyond 8 if all the vacancies are filled by Republicans. At present the Democrats come very near having a majority, owing to the absence of 3 fe their opponents. Mr. Cameron, of Wis consin, is ill; Mr. Ferry is away on account of the sickness of his brother, and Mr. Edmunds has been confined to his house for several days, The effect of the nearly even balance new existing between the two political parties in the Senate will be to keep nearly everybody in his seat during the consideration of po, litical queations. Senator Morgan,of Ala bama, got his seat to-day, in spite of an hour's speech read by Mr. Spenoer from printed slips, and of a very vigorous presentation by Mr. Morton of the facts brought out by the investigation con. oerning the way Alabama was carried by the )emocrats in 1875. Mr. Morton did not appear desirous of making. fight against Mr. Morgan's admission, but he did not want to let the occasion oass without showing how the Repub lican party in Alabama was eheated and intimidated into a hopeless minor ity. With the admission of Mr. Mor gan the Democratic claimants are. all in except Gen. M. C. Butler, of South Carolina. THAT LETTER. stanleY Matthews Explains hew heWrote to Chamberlain. [S(ecial to Cincinnati Enquirer.] CoLUMBcs, 0., March 3.-Mr. Mat thews was asked to-day about that letter he wrote to Chamberlain, of South Caro lina, and had some explanations to make of how he came to write it. He s:id that while ho was in Washington Senator Gordon, of Georgia, and Col. Haskell, of South Carolina, called on him to ask his influence in favor of a change in military orders in South Caro lina, so that they should correspond with those in Louisiana. This he de .lined, but at the same.time suggested bhat the proper way to settle the matter was to fix some plan of ad justment that would be satisfactory to Chamberlain and the general gover nment. He had great personalrspect, be said, for Chamberlain, nad d41't want anything done b Admminstra iona that would h mil him. He bad been in berla n Ea to pre teet H.. -· He had simply ritten Chamberlaia a friendly letter asking him if there wee not some plan under which a friendly aJustiment of the political differences in South Carolina could be brought about, in which he (Gov. Chamberlain) would co-operate; and this was all there was of it. POSTMASTUER KIY. What he wll. do ta the South--Inteattea of the semoerats. (Spesial to Ohicago Times.) WAssemowV, March 9.-Key. when he becomes Postmaster General, is to have entire control of the postoflces in the South, for the purpose of organizing as far as be can a conservative party it the South that will support the admi-l istration. In heavily populated negro distri.te, at small postolfices colohed men who can give bonds will be se leoted. Thus, by getting the colored men to serving with the conservatives, it is hoped to bring them into this new conservative party. Mr. Hayes is hold ing out very firmly for hi.i Southern policy. Just what he will do the ex treme Ropublloans are waiting to see. The editor of a Chica-~o itRpublican evening sheet, now her,, says that if Hayes persists in sacrifliing the Repub lican party in the South for the sake of what ho (calls harmony, hsle papelr will come out, against the Adminltration and follow Blaine. Blaine has i st, out upon a course from which he cannot go backward. He is very bitter upon ifayes, and says no man ever nscutncd offico who is more ignorant of its duties than Hayes. That Hayes should have selected a Cabinet without consulting any of the Senators he regards as a reflection upon the leaders of the Republican party. Mean while the oppositioen to Hayes among the Ilepublicans in the Senate is more than made up by the attitude of the Southern Senators. Mr. Iamar said to-day that the solid South in the Sen-. ate would suppeort Mr. Hayes so long as • he gave them the right sort of policy toward the South. IJSt INIVUIANCE. The Uights of the Insured Maintained by the Courts. [St. Iooui Time#.] The trial of the life-policy suit of Klosterman and Haffaer, administra. tors of L. O. BShleich, deceased, vs. the Germania Life Insurance Company of New York, was concluded yesterday in Circuit Court No. 2. The Jury returned a verdict in favor of the plaintiffs and assessed the damages at $2097. In this case payment of the policy effected on the life of the deceased gentle man was resisted by the defend ant company upon the ground alleged, that the policy had been ob tained under false representation, not only upon the part of the deceased, but likewise on the part of Mr. Haffner, ad ministrator of the. estate of deceased, the agent of the company at Cape Girardeau and a practlein:, physician. Mr. Sohleih was reported to the head officer of the company as a man in good and sound health, and he signed the statement himself. The doctor recom mended the life of deceased as a good one, and the risk was accordingly taken. It was subsequently discovered, as thel company alleged, that the deceased had ' contracted diseases, the result of india- * crettons and that ais constitution was undermined in consequence at the time the medical examination took place. The company further allege that Mr. Haffner knew full well the condition of the deceased when he endorsed his ap plication for a life-policy. Evidence was introduced for the plain tiffs to establish the fact that the de ceased had succumbed to an attack of brain congestion and that his death did , not result from any disease undermin ing his system at the time that the med., feal examination was made. The plain tiffs denied the allegation that the was any fraud or collusion practiced on the company In securing the policy. The trial attracted a considerable gree of interest. Mr. Bontly repr( sented the plaintiffs, and Messrs. FI kelnbfirg & Rassleur the defendants. GOOD- ,BYE.
