REPORTS OF CeMMITTxIES.
By Mr. Bridger of Caldwell, chair
man of the Committee on Elections and
Qualifications-A irepert favoring the
expulsion of Chas. Gaudet, of La
fourehe, as a member of this House.
The report gives as the grounds for the
expulsion the fact that Gaudet, after
having of his own free will taken his
seat and been sworn in in this House,
has gone to the Packard House and
been sworn in there, and has absented
himself from the legal House since the
29th January.
The rules were suspended and the
resolution taken up.
Mr. Sellers objected to haste in the
matter saying that he did so for rea
sons which it was not necessary to men
tion on the floor of the House.
Mr. Sartain, of Carroll, wished that
three or four days' grace be given to
Mr. Gaudet to return.
Mr. Jonas said that it was not desired
that the member should return, for even
should he do so he, Mr. Jonas, would
vote for his expulsion.
Mr. Sellers wanted to know whether
the Committee on Elections had met to
consider the resolution.
Mr. Bridger answered that they had,
this morning, in this hall, and that the
only dissenting vote on the report was
that of Mr. Sellers himself.
Mr. Young, of Claiborne, made a
short and expressive speech on the sub
ject, concluding with the remark that
this house did not wish the return of
any corrupt vagabond.

senting vote.

HATES' MOUTHERN POLICY.
A Warnlng to the Ultra Republicans
from Hayes' Chief Organ.
[Ciocinnati Commerc!l, I
The new departure in national poli
ties, so clearly marked out by President
Hayes both in his inaugural address
and in his selection of a Cabinet, is most
assuring to those who discern most
clearly the true condition of parties and
of the country.
The country is tired even to nausea of
the attempt to maintain unscrupulous i
and corrupt men in office in the South
at the point of the bayonet. The re
suIting good to the freedmen of such
forcible maintenance (which has
always been the sole pretext under
which it could be justified for a
single moment) has been demonstrated
by all the evidence and examination
made, to be illusory. The fact is. the
political adventurers from the North
are not the true friends of the black
man; on the contrary, they have been
in Georgia, in Alabama, in South Caro
lina, in Mississippi and in Louisiana, his
most unscrupulous deceivers and rob
bers. The debts of someof these States
have been vastly increased, their credit
has been utterly destroyed, and their
people, both white and black, have been
taxed to the verge of oppression.
It is certain that an attempt to main
tain an unpopular local government in
any State, by the intervention of the
Federal power, is as unwise as it is im
practicable. Suppose the whole force
of the army were to be devoted, as Mr.
Blaine would appear to wish, to keep
Packard and his company of office
holders in possession of the govern
ment of Louisiana, (it is plain enough
that no mere squad of United States
troops would be adequate for the pur
pose), the army must either be in
creased, or transported from our ill
protected frontiers to New Orleans.
And where let us ask, are the supplies
to be found to recruit or to maintain an
army for any such purpose ?
Besides this, there is a palpable im
possibility for the Packard and Cham
berlain governments to maintain them
selves without controlling the tax levies
in their respective States, and the facts
are that the instruments of levying
taxes are already in posesssion, as re
gards most of the counties, of the
Nicholls and Hampton governments.
The vast majority of property owners
have taken that method of
recognizing the government of their
choice, and which they believe
to have been fairly elected-a method
which consists in refusing to pay taxes
to the government which they deem to
have usurped its functions, and in pay
ing only the tax gatherers of the gov
ernment they hold to be legitimate. Is
it wise, is it expedient, is it even possi
ble for the arms of the United
States to be carried into every county
of South Carolina and every parish
of Louisiana to compel the con
tribution of taxes to sustain what
is declared a usurpation of the gov
ernment at the point of the bayonet?
The question answers itself. And when
to this is added the unquestionable fact
that the sentiment of the country is
overwhelmingly in favor of a change of
policy on the Southern question, it be
comes the duty of those Republicans in
the Senate who would not commit polit
ical suicide to accept the wisdom of the
hour, and act heartily with their own
President and his Cabinet in the admin
istration of affairs that has been deter
mined upon.
