When the legislature of Louislana 'ants ad vice ali.tnde as to whom it shall select to roepresent this State in the United Ltates HSnate, it. will call for it. } The New York Tritbun, has not the lear of Packard before its eyes. It says that if his "Legislature" keeps on dis Integrating as it has been doing, It will soon consist mainly of absentees. The same journal remarks that, while Crazy Horse bonds to the inoevitable and wants to surrender, Bitting Bull and 1ackard are slll dleflant. In the coming struggle between the ' President and Jim Blaine & Co., backed by the "stalwart Riepubllcan feeling of .New England"- whatever that may anean-woe stand by Mr. Hayes. It is, to say the least, rather doubtful at this moment whether Mr. Hayes' Commis loners are doing more to strengthen Shis hands or those of his enemies. How ever, it is not our funeral. Shake not thy presidential locks at us, friend Butherford. Thou can'st not say we asked for this Commisslon. Eurekai The State of Louisiana is found. A few days ago the Commission intimated that they saw here a dual ex eoutive and a dual judioliary, but that all parties agreed that there could be but one legal Legislature, and that when they succeeded in finding that, they would consider that they had found the State of Louisiana. Well, we are glad to be abe to announce that their search has been sucnessful. They have pro posed to the l.egltlature sitting at Odd Fellows' Hall theo lectiou of Pack ard to the ilnited States S.nate. Leaving out. of view the political im moralit.y involved in the suggestion, this.slinpltn proposition Is equivalent to an adnilssain by the Commission that, the Legislature sitting at Odd Fellows' ]call is the legal Legislaturo of the State. Such being the case their oceu pation here is gone. and there remainsne nothing for them to do but to report to the President that they have found the State of Louisiana, and that it can get along very well without Federal assistance. The Tim'ts has the following: "The other dlay Commissioner Mo Veigh suggested a little blood letting, as a relief for the Louisiana distemper. We can hardly credit the verity of this statement and trust that the Times may discover that it has been misin teormed. Mr. McVeigh came to us with the repute of a conservative, high-toned gentleman and lawyer, and was selected by President Hayes as the representa tive of a polley of pacification to assist Kr. Hayes in smoothing his way to a satisfactory realization and redemption of the pledges of his inaugural, which were to recognize the au'onomy of this State and restore peace, order and good government. It can hardly be con oeived that a Commissioner, to whom the President confided so delicate and Important a duty, could be guilty of the truculent flippancy of the remark attributed to him by the 2imes. If it should prove true, we have little doubt that such utterance, even it jocu larly made, will be promptly repudiated and condemned by tile President. The dis.ltowmlper with which Louisiana is filicted does not demand blood-lettiog, and the good andt peaceful people re gard a presumption of that sort as ema mating from no friendly source and in dicatltg a uminchievous and vindiotive Seellng. All that t lsl people demLand, espetially ft' strangers aud outsiders, is to be let alne to determine their own domestic dlfficultest. Whilst ready to shed as umuch blood and make as many sacrtiflces to defend their rights and liberties as any other people, not even excepting the heroloaud Spartan popu fation of Pennsylvaniat they have no desire or aspiration for so desperate a mode of solving a questlOn whclh they believe tg bs determined by peaceful ivlI ,aat*l. tbhq !W MR. PACK&RD'AI' TITLE. The New York Tribune's New Orleans dispatches credit the Commission here with holding "That the Packard govern ment has the best if not the only de jure title." The opinion, however, the Tribune correspondent credits the commtoi.oners with entertaining of the power and Irresistibility of "the de facto" or Nlcholls government, so olear ly indicate that their report will confirm the President in his purpose to with draw the troops and leave Gov. Nicholls master of the situation, that we are not at all disposed to quarrel with the singular theory of thecase advanced. Neverthe less, in the interest of truth and the good fame of the people of Louisiana, wedeem it proper to point out the fal lacy, if not the absurdity, of the assump tion that the Packard government is the dejjury government of this State. 1. The right of election by the quall fled voters of the States is the very es senee and fundamental principle of the American constitution and of the con stitution of every State in the Union; and to transfer that right to any board, committee or other set of men, is a stop leading to the destruction of ourtwhnle system of Itepuollican government. The Conmmisstoners, we think, will not dis putlo this irrefutablo proposition, nor den.y that, thne oflhlalsl composlng the Nih.hdtll4 governmernlt., in a general el"e Lion, hold on the 7th of November, 1871, unter the laws of Louisiana, received a )olpular majority, averaging eight thou ~rand votes, at the Illr. To h11I, then, that P'ackard and his offllcire, who were "counted in" bIy the Returning 1lhoard tlrough processs arbit.rary, irre sponsithl and irregular, and by which tie expressedu will of the I people was annulled annd actunlly reversed, constitute the dle jutre gov ernment of this State, involves the t grossest confusion of ideas, "making I the same proposition which is false in theory and argument, true in fact." 2. The only claim that Mr. Packard has to the omoe of Governor, and the title of his so-called representatives and senators, grow out of, and are based on, the action of the Returning Board by I which the will of a majority of the peo ple was annulled. A strong effort has been made to give to this lawless and I corrupt action of the Returning Board I the character of indisputable legality by affirming that the act of the Legis lature creating the board had been de-o. clared by the Supreme Court to be constitutional. But, a few days ago, we printed the decision of the court re lied upon to sustain this position, and all who can read may see that that court, corrupt as it was, and consti tuting as it did, part of the conspiracy against the liberties of this peo ple, did not dare to affirm that the Sact was constitutional, but dodged the issue. Thus, the act creating the iniquitous board, on whose actions and decisions the Packard govern s mont bases its claim to legality, has not even the poor merit of a decision of a corrupt and partisan court affirming t its constitutionality. Indeed, the most · corrupt court that has oxisted since the time of Jeffries dared not perpetrate the lnfamy of declaring that act consti e tutional. The board, then, from which l the Packard government draws its life, is the mere creature of a corrupt, igno rant and partisan Legislature, and is j viol ltive of article 48 of the constitution of thle State, which is as follows: Tie qTualiflho eb ieur' for lpI"prosenttives shall votoe or ( verrr ' i d LiiuntenaiL t (},v roor at' Ith time i tl d placet of volting for tlprouelltat iv. e; 'he retslrl a or rvily clh olrlsl bsba b eaasid tip and Il ainl iti tl d byl the ir.-per rt,rlltlllg l ul. r ito the Ni, ret.ry of His r, who shal du r ivr Itioii to ile Mlpeakon r ,of tih IHolu o f 1 ,preerntatve. ,n tIhe; ruo,' dI day of L.io tlile. il of the (tenusrt 'o.ntmbly sheie tio Io holdrln. 'I he mrembers of thn (1 ntoral A..embhi Mthall meet in tie II' u.e II Itiiproell' uti ivenl to exn S ,i anld j.ollt It voIf .o.' a And of article 34 of tile constitution EIL(ch house of ItO (1 ln rall Aswfmbll y shall jidteO of thel a nIIfll 'ttioHn Inoll oliool Iand rn turntl of its llollll llr The act ci eating the Returning Board delegates to the board the very author ity to count and canvass the votes which the constitution in these articles con fores upon the General Assembly of the State. Thus, before the commissioners can maintain before the country that the Packard government is the de jure government of Louisiana, they must bring arguments that will reverse all the theories, doctrines and settled prin ciples of constitutional law, and oon vince the American people that a mere act of the Legislature is not only sn preme to the constitution of the State, but may even destroy the right of elec tion, and transfer the power to choose Governors and Legislatures from the qualified voters to three or four indi viduais. 3. Since a dejure government in a free country must necessarily be the choice of a majority of the legal voters ex E pressed through the constitutional and legal methods of election, it is utterly Spreposterous, utterly absurd-a confu sion of ideas and a contradiction in terms I to affirm that that is the de jure govern a ment of a State which is inotrenched and a barricaded in a single building; which is a fugitive from the wrath of the peo pile; which cannot exercise theslightest authority over any portion or in any neighborhoodl of the community; Swhich canuunot collect a dollar of taxe3s; which is the bitter and vindictive oon rlily of the public luterests, and which, a in a populLaion of eight hundred u thousand, does not h:Lvo the active y recognition of five hulldred people out l side of those ilenotifitd with its i fortunes. The Packard government was installed behin, the barricades of o the St. Louis Hotel, under the protec a tion of the Federal troops. and in the y presence of a handful of offile-seekers at and adventurers. Its first utterance Swas a threat Oftsf m. il.t, W -Q whole life has been, to the public inter ests, a living threat of robbery and op pression; civil discord and servile In surreotlan. To affirm that such a gov ernment Is the de jure government of a free people, we repeat, Is a monstrous absurdity. The Packard government is neither a de facto nor a de jure government. It is a wicked sham; an iniquitous treason which has worked inoaloulable loss and suffering. It was never elected by the people, and therefore lacks the first and principal requirement of a government in a free country. It Is the enemy of the State, and is abhorred by the people and cannot therefore be the government of a free and civilized community. It has, indeed, not a single quality of a de jure or a do facto gov ernment. It is the nmalevoleont creature of the perjury anld forgery of a lawless board created by an unconstitu tional and scandalous act of one of the vlliot, most Ignorant and corrupt Logislatures which ever assembled even under the damnable regime of oarpot-baggery and reconstruction. If the gentlemen composing the C(onmi - sion can refute a single one of these statoments, we stand ready to concede tlat the Pa~ckard government Is the de jure govern rnmnt of LTruiiana. Kellogg has asnumnedl the charicter or i bulllozor. ltndeed he essays to frighten the l'resihent and afl'rm the whole country by hIs relation of the terribleo war Packard will open and the horrible deeds lihe liz:A J.'inkltons of the T.l di- e cal party will eorlpetrato if the troops cl are withrlrawn fro m polioo dutlty in the t rear of the St. Louis Iotel. lPackard, h the ferocious Kellogg ItaIaros the lullihc, c will, so soon as tile troops atre with- e1 drawn, retlro into the parish of PlINque mines, set up there the standard of the ti usurpation, rally around him twenty or thirty thousand negro patr iots and war riors, and proceed with hei playful busl- 1 nres of war, bloodshed and devastation. While this gallant army from its base of operation in Plaquemines, occupies g the attention of (en. Ogden and his T White Leagues, the negro wenches in the cities and towns, armed with kero sene oil lamps, Kellogg says, will set fire to the houses and work a general ruin of the property of the d-d white aristo. orate. Kellogg is either a fool or credits the country with a very i small store of intelligence. A coward, r however, always makes a ridiculous ass of himself when he attempts to play the part of a desperado. Kellogg t I and Packard both would as soon jump d into a lden of wild lions as to face the White League in hostile array. There was a time in this State when cowardly rascals like Kellogg and Packard could delude the ignorant country negroes into organizing armed mobs against the white people, and using kerosene oil and other villainous instruments in the destruction of property. But that time has passed. Packard could not, in Plaquemines, nor in any other parish, even if he had the pluck to attempt it, assemble two hundred colored men to fight his battles. Withdraw the sup port of the federal government, andi fuss and fume as he and his henchmen might, Packard's whole sham govern ment, less substantial than that of UChaim berlain, would flzzle out in half a day, and the country would see how miserable, rotten and contemptible a sham has been. through the support of the army, oppressing the interests of this Sante and keeping tlho whole coun try in a condition of anxiety and appre r hension. The nwxt timue Billy Pitt gushes in Washington about Packard, the I'laqu.inie c(arnlpai gn, the negro r wonies and their keroeno oil laimps, lot, somloenterprising reportler say "boo" to him and the snivelling rascal will jump out of his hootts. The next time Packard's Rump loses I its quorum it is dead indeedl. It has displayed as much vitality as a cat; no 1 sooner has it been ruined, its quorum - gone, its organization broken, then, by Icounting in defeated candidates, after the style of the Returning Board, it has t created a new quorum and a new legis e lature; but, at last, it has reached the t limit beyond which it cannot go. The I next time its quorum is broken it can not count in defeated candidates, be cause there are no more defeated e Republican candidates to count in. It has completely exhausted the appar , ently inexhaustible supply of Radical candidates for the Legislature. e There were elected to the Legislature, e at the late election, 60 Republicans; I- the Returning Board threw In 14 more, defeated candidates; in addition to this, e the Rump has counted in 16 additional e defeated candidates. The Rump ought, therefore, to consist at this day of 60 d Representatives and 30 defeated candi r dates. However, 10 of these have gone over to the true Legislature, 4 have re a signed their seats, and 13a more have gone home in disgust and from impecu d nlosity, thus leaving behind a bare h quorum. SThere are 120 members tof the Legifsla t ture. The RIdicals. hot ever,dtl not y run candilatu s foral Ilthose s.,ts. They bhad no cnnlihatles tor t.e L·,lglat ure in (i Cmeron, Cal.at.leu, 'abhin,, Lvi gstott, Utjiin, C'liibtrie, E ,tEt "Felicaiata, a II I In numie(rous ot ilier Jarishes.

Aud 1o show tile great luck of Hadictl candidallite 90 out t of those 93 candidates Obtaited tiheir f seats in the Legisalature, the other three Snot getting theirs, because they did not e care to ask for them. So zealoux indeed a was the Ramp ain this matter that it s went directly back on the Governor. Fa4 surprem. ~~q .u4 election in Grant parish, by seating the Republican candidate from Grant. The Rump, however, has at last reached its limit. It has exhausted the material from which it has been making legislators, as it has counted in every Radical candidate in the State. The next time, therefore, that one of its members is locked up in the calaboose, its quorum is indeed broken, or it will have to count men into the Legislature who never even ran for the office. The meeting of the mechanics and workingmen of New Orleans at the hall of the Washington Artillery last night was large, and anirnated by a very earnest spirit. The object of the moot ing was to appoint a delegation to vislt the Commissioners and represent to them the wretched situation in this Htate from the stand-~olnt of men who labor with their hands for a living, and who, by the stagnation in business and all enterprises and the withdrawal of capi tel, have been redluced ul tmost to want. We take ocoasion to say to the gentle men colrnpolrig the comnrnmison that the commrnittoo which will call upon them to-day on behalf of the mechanics and worki ng men, represen tan edlucated, In telllgemnt, patriotrIc and invaluabld por tiorn of this commn nlunity, and their views and opl,llnis are deserving the high est, respect eand onsideration. lkom theme gentlrmonrn the cornrinlslon will obtain a view of the sitlwitlen they have not yet had, anri by wh ifh they will see that the mechanics and working rrnen, not less than thie pr perty hollers, mrr chants anid profemsionil minor, stanl by the Nicholls goveiirnment anid re.st their hol.s of rolie from their present diffil cullt io and sufferings upon Its inal full establishment. Mr. Kidri, of Jackson, yesterlday, after the usual vote for Hnat.or hadl bren taken, notilled the joint session that to-day he would call for a second bal lot; in short, thiat he proposed to press the election of a Senator. We are very glad that the member from Jackson proposes to take this step; he is on the right line and tile people as well, we trust, a majority of the Legislature, will sustain his action. As we remarked yesterday, the elec tlon of a Senator will narrow the discus sion of the Loulelana case and eleminate one fruitful question of discussion from it. The idea of electing any one except a representative Democrat, if It was ever seriously entertained, has been aban doned, and the people may feel assured that the Legislature will discharge this duty by the election of a man who will represent their sentiments and interests and who will do honor to the State. It seems that we were mistaken in stating yesterday that the Senate In March passed a resolution (ldelaring vacant the seats of Senators who are supporting Packard. Such a resolution was introduced by Gen. Goode and re ferred to the Judiciary Committee, but never finally acted upon. The Senate was not, therefore, inconsistent Wed nesiday last, as we charged yesterday, in passing the resolution cordially invit ing the conspirators to take their seats. The fault of our Senators was not in consistency, but a superabundance of the Christian virtues of tolerance and forgiveness. It',ferring to an article in the Minden Democrat, the Natchitolihes V'i,dicator very forctbly stales the question the peolhle of L iiulsian as ouil pilause and consgiie'r slIII1 an 'effort Ihe nade to set, up the Packard g',vrrl ni',nt.
