Just ore the adjournment of the Senate, March, Morton. in conversation with prominent Loutblana Iepublioan poll lan, said that he should support the laims of lustis when his credentials e up, on grounds cognate to those whtoh he urged the seating of Kel 8. (S ubsequently it transpired that over tares were made to two or three Demo. Dirts, known to be particular friends of uastis, to induce them to abstain from - otnlg and let Kellogg in, the eonsidera (onl being that after Kellogg was seated hbr the long term Eustis would get a 'favorable report from the Committee .bn Elections, and be seated for the short tsrm. This munificent offer was re Je.ted, and a count of noses having Ihown that at the utmost stretch Kel ,log would lack two and perhaps three o tes of being seated. Morton smother -$ the report o ellogg's case. It is not knwn whether knowledge of tlls offer e to Eustls himself or tot, but th .pression is that it did, .dn4 that Eu is dictated the declination -of the ofer, not wishing to mix his case With Kellogg's or be a party to any bar g whatsoever. NTotwitistanding this rebuff, the san g aine Kellogg still belie4s that the g4sheme can be made to work, and that, -by yoking himself to Eustis, he can demoralise the Demooratic vote in the :'aMate sumolently to slide in by the .kilLof his teeth.

T The Brilliant Prospects of New Orleans 01 Viewed from a New York ye--Three Branches of Trade New Orleans Catn Meeure. re [N. Y. -Tribuane. - NEw OnRLaAS, April 13. -It is very b: much the fashion in all parts of the p1 country and particularly in the South, at to speak of New Orleans in a pitying iN way, as though she bhad fallen into a A hopeless decline and were chiefly in- si teresting on account of memories of her Lu past prosperity. L I do not share these somber opinions, o0 On the contrary I think that the city's ti prospects, now that the State is released b from the unwholesome rule of Igno- st rance and greed, are more encouraging oi than those of any place south of St. ol Louis. Her business has unquestiona- tl bly suffered a decline in recent years, tl but not nearly to the extent generally d supposed, and there are many indica- il tions that it has got to the bottom and s: Is beginning to climb the hill. In spite ft of all she has endured from the war it and the misgovernment that followed oc she is still a real metropolis and stands y peerless among the cities of the South. al New Orleans is an Indigenous growth 1i of the sub-tropical civilization of the a Gulf States, and besides, the cosmopoll- o tan spirit which comes of large interests a and extended intercourse with the world v is found here as nowhere else in the i South, and with it a degree of culture c only compatible with tihe possession of s assured wealth by a considerable ele- t ruent of the population. I was preparpared f by much that I had read and heard to I see marked evidences of the decay, if g not of the utter ruin of the old New Or- c leans aristrooracy, but I do not find f them. The best streets of dwellings, such as St. Charles avenue, Camp and a Prytanla streets, and in the French E quarter, the beautiful Esplanade, show no signs of shabbiness but on the con trary the houses look as if freshly painted, and the lovely gardens sur rounding them are well kept. The great number of handsome houses show that the city possesses an amount of accumulated wealth surpassed by c few other places of the same size. The business streets have a brighter and a more lively look than I anticipated, and the levee, covered with cotton bales and .hogsheads of sugar and molasses, e and fringed with a line of steamboats d crowded in side by side with their noses , to the shore lnaves no room to doubt a that the city is still finding an unfailing p source of wealth in the great staples of (1 her commerce. The statistics of the trade of New Or- D leans tell the story of her present con dition better than any surface goner alizations. Last year she handled e a 1,421,000 bales of cotton, net-that is, p exclusive of what came here from ether r delivery ports- a larger amount than in 1 any year of her history except 1860, 0 which was the phenomenal cotton year t all through the South. This year it is J expected that she will handle 1,400,000 r bIhles. Taking the average of the past a five or six years, it appears that more a cotton Is coming to this port annually than came in any similar period prior to 1860. The percentage of the whole crop a of the country that is handled here is f not as great as it was before the war, the j completion of railroads all through the cotton bolt and the great reduction in the priceo of rail transportation having diverted the product of large districts from the old river channels of carriage I to take it directly to Eastern iorts. With the completion of the work of a deepening the channel at the mouth of r the Mississippi, New Orleans will no ,doubt regain something of this diverted trade. ... The most important source of wcalth for the Crescent UOty lies within her easy grasp and cannot be taken away from her I mean the products of the rich soil of Louiseana, which mu4t al ways seek her markets. The magnitude of this source may be understood from the following statistics of the chief staple crops of the State in 1875: C0 t t,n, 425,000 bales, valued at $27,800,000; sugar, 163,000,000) pounds, valued at $12. 100,000; mola4uee, 11,000 000 gallons, valued at $6,200,000; rice, 40,000,000 pounds, valued at $1 706,000. HLere were nearly 1.i8,000.000 brought into the State and distributed among Its people In payment for the year's yield of the cotton and rice plants and the sugar cane. A settled government and amicable relations between the white and black races will operate to increase the product of these staples. Old as Louisiana is, compared with her sister States of the Southwest, there are still many thousands of acres within her borders not under culture that can be profitably worked when her population increases and the labor system is better adjusted, and the present plantation can be made more productive with more thorough culture. If no improvements were made in her commercial facilities, I think New Or leans would hold her own as the metropolis of the region immediately dependent upon her, and the outlet of much of the Mississippi trade, but she has opportunities of greatly enlarging her business in three directions, which her men of enterprise comprehend and are eager to embrace. The first is the increase of the cotton and grain trade, which can be accomplished by a little effort, if it does not accomplish itself as soon as permanent deep-water channel is secured at the mouth of the river. The second is the Texas trade, which can in large part be made tributary to this city by the building of railroads to Jefferson and Shreveport, connecting with the system of Texas roads already constructed. The third direction from which the city will in the near future draw new sources of wealth is the Gulf trade. Her geographical position gives her the power to control the commerce of the wide sweep of continent and islands circling around the Gulf-Mexico, Cen tral America, New Greqada, Venezuela and the West Indies. I believe the time will come when she will be the acknow ledged commercial capital of these vast and fruitful regions-their monetary ex change, their market. for the sale of their varied produdtions and the pur chase of the manufactures of the North and the grain of the. Mississippi Valley: The floor and grain trade has fallen off materially, not as compared .with years before the war, however, for the decline has been very recent, D naong in 1873. Uees again the t odar Can. Texas, connecting with the lines from Kansas through the Indian Territory, and in securing deep water at the mouth of the river. Already there is a marked upward movement in the grain receipts, the grain thus far this year over last reaching 200,000 bushels. The only serious trade loss suffered by New Orleans is in the grocery and provision line. Formerly all of Liouisi ana, Texas and Arkansas, and most of Mississippi, and parts of Tennessee and Alabama, came here to buy plantation supplies which were brought to this market by sea or river; but now St. Louis, Cincinnati and Louisville reach out their long railroad arms, and grasp the lion's share of this profita ble business. The planter who sends his cotton here used to order of1 his factor his yearly supply of provisions, but now the chances are that he is supplied from one of the three rival cities named. Much of the dry goods and hardware trade follows in the same track. The changed labor system has been in some respects un favorable in its influence on New Or leans' business. Instead of the planters coming down the river once or twice a year, and taking back with them the stores and clothing required by their laborers, the wants of the freedmen are now supplied by a multitude of little village and cross-roads stores scattered all over the country, whose proprietors, Jews for the most part, get their stocks in the Northern cities. Besides the planters, no longer supported in idleness and luxury by the unpaid labor of the negroes, are forced to economy. They do not come here to lavish their year's profits in gayety and dissipation, as in the " good old times," and thus the city is cutoff from a large revenue once obtained by ministering to the pleasures of the wealthy classes of a large portiou of the South. .. .. . ..,.im k ( p . ... . .. .

We do not understand that you, in the slight est degree, in this matter abandon Rtepubhlcan principles and your desire to promote the iute- a rests of the Republican party, the legitimate off- r spring of the old Whig party, through which we olherish the expectation that you will' advocate our great internal improvement interest in gov ernment aid fr our levees, the Southern Paciflo Railroad, the outlet to the Mississippi river, and for such other public works as are necessary to 1 assist to developing the resources of our li:ate and of the whole country. I Itolying on your aid In these and all matters tending to produce peaoe, conoord and prosperity in our State, we will give to your admlnistration our cordial support.

Brewster. Peroy Baker, Antd others. Met~lemtent of the tLoulsiana questlon. IN, Y. llorald.] After sixteen years the great war is at last over. The last robel laid down his arms in 1865, twelve years ago, but in t one way or another the constitution has remained suspended since then and the t country has been kept in a condition of n constructive war, until now, at last, Federal soldiers cease everywhere to in terfere in the State governments, and the people of all the States are once more happily to rule themselves in ac cordance with the funuamental organic law of the land, and thus the great war is over; the people of the United States live once more under the shelter of the constitution. The withdrawal of the Federal troops to their barracks In New Orleans will deserve to be remembered as a great event in our history. It signalizes the final and complete return to constitu tional government. When the Federal interference ceased in Arkansas at the command of Congress, in 1875, the peo pie of that State, of bnth parties and races celebrated the event by a day of joyful thanksgiving for the restoration of peace, security an: prosperity; the whole American people might very well mark the restoration of self-government to Louisiana by a similar celebration, for President Hayes undoubtedly, by this last act of his, gives a new lease of life to the Republic, a new feeling of permanence and se curity to all interests in every State; he adds to the value of every piece of prop erty in the Union, because he opens the way to a renewal of confidence and to a revival of business. He has made the future safe, as it has not been safe in all the long weary years since the first gun was fired at Sumter. The President has redeemed his first and most important promise-that he would so govern as to abolish "the South" in a political sense, and make of us all countrymen, equally living under the same constitution, and with no motives to sectional divisions. For the first time in mere than half a cen tury there is no "South." For the first time since 1861 the people of all the Southern States are left at liberty to rule themselves in their local afaig as th4ei own interests and wisdom shall.ictate.
