Blesides th ttaking posseedon of the halls of the General Assembly by the Legislature yesterday, the Governor's omoe, and those of the Secretary of State, State Auditor and of other offoes, were occnpied by Gov. Nicholls and the 8tste offioers without any incident worthy of notice occurring, the oooupation taking place by the simple open lng of the doos by the polioe on duty. In the Governor's omoe things looked to be in olufficent order, the only person in the neighbor hood that recalled the Inoambency of Packard being his colored porter, who was there possibly to take away, when the time came, some artioles of furniture belonging to his emplorer. The nterior of the building is so thoroughly impregnated with carbollo sold as to be unoom fortable. Many portions of the building are still inaecessible, the oity police being in charge of the doors and ball-ways, to prevent possible incur lons of the light-flngered gentry who generally Improve sunch occasions. The walls of the oorridors are pretty well writ ten over with choioe selections of Billinggate, aimed at the President of the United 8tates, among which may be read: "B. B. Hayes, the traitor of 1877; sold his country and God." "lutherford Bastard Hayes," "Judas Isoariot ls. U : Butherford B. Hayo" and others, not Af for polite cars. Evidently there has been an extensive orema Soo of documents made by Packard, ncoluding ti all probability the returns of the commission ee of the late electio, for charred remaidoof papers were found is and around the furnasoe or the hotel, on the ground foor, Indicating that much work of this kind had been done. Care lesseue on the part of the individual intrusted with the duty of burning up some of the papers, however, was manifested by the fact that a por- * tion were found to be euffiently preserved to be of use in ease of need. The occurrences relating directly to the re spectin houses on the eventful day will be found to a report of the proceedings of the Legislature. I AN INICIDENT. Inesue Ideas Propogated by the Hap pily Defunct Carpet-lagger. One of the ncildents attending upon the oocu potion of the 8tote.House (otherwise etyled the St. Louis Hotel) by the legitimate govornment is not without its point of moral. A DnnoonAT reporter overheard a conversation between two colored women who appeared very nervous about Packerdt' discomflture, not that they entertained any tender feelings or personal siffetion for the defunct BDos, bat inasmuoh as in their guilel sanes they imagtned that the change would affect thelsetatus as independent iAteenth amendments.

The Sheriff's Imbroglo. It appears that there has arisen between the city of New Orleans and the Criminal Sheriff a question relative to fees. It seems that Mr. J. D. Houston, the Oriminal Sheriff, presented a usual his bills for January, February and March, and the bill was refused. Hearing this Mr. Houston offered a propoeition to sumit it to arbitration of the City Attorney sad another attorney to be appointed by him, aad in oase of disagreement they to appoint a third, or if this failed he was willing to submit the whole question to J. Ad. Boslier. How these proffers will be met remains to be seen. If they receive a negative response, it is prob. able that Mr. Houston, through his attorneys, will apply to Judge Whitaker for a rule for con tempt against the City Administrators. The following communoiation from Sheriff Houston in this connection explains itself: New Oaltaxs, April 25. 1877. To the Honorable Mayor and Administrators of the clty of New Orleans : Gend, men -Hoping and believing that it is not the Oestro of the OtCity Council to subject the city of New Orleans, or me, to expensive and useless li'igation to determine the legality and correct ness of the bills for fees, as We ented by me, for the months of January, February and March, 1877, I hereby respcotfully submit the following propositions : 1. That the disputed amounts be refrred for arbitration to the City Attorney and attorney to be selected by me, and in case of a disagreeme, t the two attorneys to select the third. Or 2. If In your opinion the above will not fully protect the city's interest, let the disputed amount be referred for arbitration to the City Attorney, an attorney to be selected by him and n attorney to be so looted by me, or let the wh " matter be referred to the Hon. i. F. Jonas, 1 , Attorney. Beole-v ing every eharge claimed by me to be sir otly within the law, 1 am willing to agree to any mode of arbitration that you may consider calculated to promote the city's interest. I sincerely hope that your honorable b dy will accept one of the abore propositions as an act of justice to the tax pacers of the city of New Orleans and myself.

MAUBERLRET' BENNFIT.-At the Academy of Music tc-morrow night Mr. Mauberret, the affable and efficient treasurer of the house, will be tendered a complimentary benefit by his associates of the Academy, and his many friends who desire to evince in positive terms their appreciation of his courtesy, as well as the valuable services he has performed. During his long connection with this theatre he has de served the commendation of both the manage. ment and the public; it is therefore eminently proper that this benefit should be tendered to It may be presumed that with the attractive entertainment he offers, the success of the un dertaking will prove conclusive of his popularity. We trust also that his many friends will not be unmindful of the beneficent effects of co-opera. tion, and wilt assist in verifying our anticipations. The performance will begin with the comedy drama of "Don C'sear de Bazon." with a fine car', including Mr. B. Onorsto, who has Lindly volunteered his servio s. Then wf.l follow an entertaining and amusing olio, introducing sev eral novelties. After which the roaring farce of "A Manager in Search of Talent" will be pre sented, to close the evening's performance. We anticipate a full house on the occasion. THE SPRIxo SBASo .--It is S seldom the case that after the close of the regular theatrical season we have the opportunity of seeing a first class performance until the succeeding season, we are glad this year to thank Messrs. W. H. Power and Roland Reed, of the late Academy company, for the promise of a series of tri weekly performances at the Academy during the spring. These performances will occur on Sunday and Wednesday evenings and on Sat urdays at noon. Messrs. Power and Reed have secured the co-operation of all the mem bers of the late company, as well as the ser vices of the orchestra and attaches of the Academy, and feel, we think Justly so, that their scheme for catering to the wants of the public will receive a substantial acknowledgement, which they are determined to deserve. Mr. Power and Mr. Reed, in inaugurating these entertainments, bplieve they will have that sup port in recognition of their earnest efforts to please which they have shown in the past. The play selected for the opening perform ance-Saturday matinee--is the drama entitled "Sweethearts," by the chaste W. 8. Gilbert, the author of "Pygmalion and Galatea," who ranks among the leading play-wrights and literateurs of the day. This will be the first performance of "Sweethearts" in New Orleans. An olio, varied and entertaniing, will follow, and the performance will conclude with the clever farce of "A Trip to the Lake.

State of Louisiana, tor New Orleans. April 25. 177. . To the Republisass of Louisiana : _- On this day. the fifteenth anniversary sy of the surrender of New Orleans to the ea forces of the United States, it becomes my duty to announce to you that the aid and countenance of the National Gov ernment has been withdrawn from the be Republicans of Louisiana, and that a a government revolutionary in form is D. practically on the pointof usurping con trol of affairs in this State. I recall the circumstances of the last d electoral campaign only to thank you )n for the fidelity to principle you then of displayed. The Republican party, as be you know entered upon the canvass a united and stronger than before. It . had enlisted under its banners an influ ential class of native born citizens of old Whig antecedents, (who to their honor be it said, still remain faithful to the principles they espoused and the b. government they supported.) It was ', further strengthened by the absence . from the State of the opposition to that element, whose previous adherence to a the party had brought it into disrepute. These causes combined to bring about the remarkable success achieved by the Republican party in all the doubtful Df parishes, with one exception, even where the white population preponderated, t and which gave us a majority in the SLegislature. Except where organized violence prevailed, our State ticket car rled every Republican parish, and also a number of parisbes which, in the last g Legislature, were represented by Dem ocratic members. tr I briefly summarize the historical 0 events that have since occurred. The i General Assembly met on the first of January last, organized with a full legal d quorum in both Houses, passed laws which were approved by the then execu tive of the State, and on the 2d day of 1 d January last canvassed and declared t the vote for Governor. ' At this time the nation was agitated d by doubt as to the result of the presi dential election. With the expectation t that Samuel J. Tilden might possibly t become President or the United States, and with ho hope of success otherwise, a my opponent in the late campaign established amoot legislature, and went t through the form of an inauguration in order that there might be a semblance of a government, which Mr. Tilden, if t inaugurated, could possibly galvanize into lite. In a few days that followed. Gen. Nicholls and his adherents were en couraged by the unexpected refusal of i President Grant to recognize the State government, or to respond to the con- r stitutional call of the Legislature, though he questioned the legality of t neither. On the 9th of January, when ti I had scarcely taken my seat in the r executive chair, the White League rose n in armed insurrection and, by a coup de main, took possession of the Supreme 0 Court, the arsenals and the stations of " the Metropolitan Police, all located at n the capital. Then came orders from U President Grant, establishing a status C I quo, the practical effect of which was to confirm the insurgents in the advan- g tages they had gained, and to prevent C any effort to dispossess them. On the " inauguration of President Hayes the P State authorities made preparation to organize a militia force for the defense w of the State government. Gen. Nicholls' police seized upon the recruiting offi cers and imprisoned them for treason, without benefit of ball or writ of habeas corpus. I telegraphed this fact to President Hayes, asking if this was a violation of the status quo, and if not, Whether the a release of these men by force (all civil remedies having been exhausted) would Y be so considered. The President re eiled : P t "Youwrdispatch of the 2ith is received, The Secretary of War has telegraphed e to Gen, Augur: 'A Commission will shortly visitg Louisiana. In the mean time the President desires that the situation remain unchanged.'" Th' Commission came. In the mean time he Nicholls Government had crys talizd,, into shape. So far from permlt ting " the situation to remain ud. changed," it had broken into the tax colleectors' offices of the city had taken forcible control of State institutions and had strengthened itself on all sides. Notwithstanding this, however, the Commission found the legal Legislature still in session at the state-House, and my title unassailed and unassailable, except by force. The result of their labors during the two weeks they re mained here is known of all men. They induced a number of the members of the legal House of Representatives to take seats in the Nicholls House, thus giving it "a Returning Board quorum." Prior to the meeting of the Legisla ture the Democrats claimed to have elected only sixty rnembers-dne less than a quorum. One, at least, of the members so claimed by them was ab sent on the 1st of January last. No Republican or independent mem ber would consent to act with the Nicholls House, and consequently, in order to obtain even the appearance of an organization, they had been hom pelled to call to their aid three men, de feated at the polls, whose election had not previously been claimed. The inquiry, therefore, seems perti nent in this connection, if a "Returning Board quorum" was so effective for the Nicholls claimants, why was it that such quorum was ignored while it remained faithful to the legal government of the State? That government held a Re turning Board quorum from the day on which the General Assembly convened, and the Legislature, duly organized, remained in legal exi'tence till disin tegrated by the direct act of the Com mission. This result having been achieved, it is a matter.of record that congratula tory messages were exchanged between the President and his Commission. On the following day the President, by a formal order made public through the press, directed that the United States troops, occupying a building in the vi cinity of the State-House, should be re moved to their barracks. Those troops had been placed there by President Grant, without formal call of the Gov ernor, to protect the Returning Board while the vote for President was count ing. .firmly believe that, had the legal gov ernment been recognized, it could have sustained itself without the intervention of troops . But the order for their with drawal, isued under the oiroumstances and -In tb.msane tI bt wa issued t ii·esý tide t·,-sct og WHOLEALE CONFECTXONEpR , CANDY, Lemon Sugar and Fruit Syrup Manufacturers.

Had the General Assembly continued in session at the State-House I should have deemed it my duty to have asserted and defended the government to the last, notwithstanding the withdrawal of the troops. But, with the Legislature disintegrated, and no prospect of pres ent success, I cannot task your tried fidelity by asking you longer to con tinue to aid me in the struggle I have thus far maintained. I therefore an nounce to you that I am compelled to abstain, for the present, from all active assertion of my government. I waive none of my legal rights, but yield only to superior force. I am not wholly discouraged by the fact that one by one the Republican State governments at the South have been forced to succumb to force, or fraud, or policy. Louisiana, the first State re habilitated after the war, is the last State whose government thus falls, and, I believe, it will be among the first to raise itself again to the place of equal and honest representation. I advise that you maintain your party organiza tion and continue the battle for the rights of citizenship and free govern ment. We strive for these, and not for man or rule. It grieves me beyond exprese sion that the heroic efforte you have made and the cruel sufferings you hare undergone to maintain Republican principles in Louisiana, have had this bitter ending. To those who have so gallantly stood by me in the long con test we have passed through I tender my heartfelt thanks. To all I counsel peace, patience, fortitude and a firm trust that eventually right and justice will prevail. S. B. PACKRD, Governor. - ---- + .... A DASTARDLY MURDER. One Husband and Two WIves. [ lagnolia Herald.] Two weeks ago we published a short account of the murder of Mrs. Eliza Magee, a young woman about nineteen years old, wife of Monroe Magee, nine miles below Tylertown, in Washington parish, Louisiana, on the 12th day of March. At the time she was murdered Mrs. Magee was separated from her husband and living at the house of her mother, Mrs. Whittingdon. Immedi ately upon the perpetration of the crime the whole community was arous ed and steps taken to ascertain the guilty parties. Dick Smith was arrest ed, circumstances having pointed to his guilt. He was carried before Judge Bradford, at Franklinton, Louisiana, and finding that he would not be allowed bail, confessed the crime. He said he had been hired by Hugh Magee and his wife to do the killing, and that they were to give him fifty dollars in money and a suit of clothes thirty dollars in cash and the balance after the work was done. Hugh Magee was then arrested as accessory and put under bond for his appearance at the district court. His wife, who was a daughter of Thos. King, remains at home. The negro, Dick Smith, was sent to the parish prison in New Or leans, for safe keeping. The perpetra tion of this horrible murder, it is said, grew out of the suspicion of Mrs. Hugh Magee that her husband was intimate with Mrs. Eliza Magee, and being di rectly charged by her with infi delity, in order to appease her wrath and give color to his own innocence, ie conspired to have the un suspecting woman murdered. As pre viously stated, Mrs. Eliza Magee was sitting at her supper table and the negro slipped up in the dark and shot her through the heart with thirteen buck shot, killing her instantly. She was about nineteen years old and is repre sented as being a very handsome woman. The murder created great ex citement all over the county. Several white men, as well as negroes, were ar rested on suspicion. After the confession of the negro and his charge against Mr. i Hugh Magee of complicity in the crime, it is said that the people could hardly be prevented from mobbing both of them. --- * - HOTEL ARRIVALS.
