t The Visit of Gov. Nicholls to flaton Rouage.
[Baton Rouge Adv oate, July 2.]
I The announcement that Gov. Nich
oils would arrive Sunday morning on
the steamer Bart Able attracted a large
r number of citizens to the landing at
quite an early hour. A goodly number
of ladies was also present to witness
the arrival of the Governor. When the
Bart Able came in sight Mayor Jas
f tremski, with the City Council and In
dI ependent Silver Cornet Band, started
down to meet the steamer and escort
the Governor to town.
At the landing the Governor was met
by the eitizens with a spirit of enthu
slasm that has not been witnessed here
at any time within our recollection. At
the landing the Governorand party took
carriages, and in the midst of peals of
artillery, martial music and the hearty
cheers o the people, started up Laurel
street to the Veranda House. At the
1 Veranda the party alighted and were
escorted to rooms set apart for them,
when the crowd dispersed.
At 3 o'clock a large number of gentle
men, including the United Statesofficers
at the garrison, Col. A. S. Heron, Mayor
Jastremski, Major John Preston, and
others, dined with the Governor and the
gentlemen who came up with him.
During the evening the Governor and
party visited the University, and at
night Independent Silver Cornet Band
serenaded the Governor. A great many
citizens called upon the Governor after
his arrival.
The object of his visit here is to
attend the first meeting of the new
Board of Trustees of the Agricultural
and Mechanical College, and to look
into the affairs of the State Prison.
We learn that Messrs. T. L. Grimes.
1 W. H. Sandiford, W. H. Harris and Dr
Taylor, of the Board of Trustees, arrived
Sunday, and that the other members of
the board will arrive to day.

WASHINGTON, June 27.-A formidable
movement in favor of the annexation of
Northern Mexico is organizing. They
propose a high joint commission for
he purpose.
Bou d ro's.
Now that the excitement of the glonous fourth
has subsided it would be well to call the attention
of our citizens to the may good qualities of our
fI riends Jury & Hausse, proprietors of that well
kLown retreat, Boudro ~ restaurant, situated, as
everybody ought to know, in a beautiful spot on
the beach at the Old Like End.
Thes, gentlemen have on hand all of th' delica
) cies of te season: soft hell crabs, fish of all sorts,
3 game, etc., which they serve up to their patrons
m the best of style, and we advise those who have
3 not the means to get out of t~wn and who desire
to have a pleasant tim" to make a trip wi h Their
1 famides to Boudro's. There, we are satisfied, they
l w1 rcceive every c.rZ a41 attoein.,
Our Dutfy to Ourselves and to Our FP.
Edior l)rnmoera_ .Our streets are rife with
ep1ninrulats on the sublject of the proeosed in
dictnment of Wells, Anderson & Co. or vilola
tion, of law in their late capacity of members
; of the Returnng oaIkrd. We are told that
the (iraned ury ought f to take co.nizanee of
the~ofhlal atr. of thes tilne, and thhen, againl
we Iear (lark whisperings that to do so would
be unpleasant to t'r.idelent rHa es and our
o.executive, thie Idea being that before
the former would releasen our State from
the point of the bayonet. the latter pledi.lI
himniself that these suipp'osed violators of lw
Sshoull go "Hcott free.,
1 say there is a gosl deal of street corln
meont. Perhaps there is more. There is pro
Sound thoughtt, and pretty free expressirm
Sgiven to that thought. The lunbjet Is a
gravo one1 and all men should look It square
ly in the l.cs. As mPiatters stand the over
-wlelming lpublie slrntimtnmt Is that Wells,
A nderoson ~t Co. houllld be dealt with j1st as
are all other suplposed violators of law. I
bllleve this sentl, ent is propelrly founded,
antd I propose to say brefly wh 1 think so.
Wells Andersool l, o., as the Rleturnlng
I Jolard, lou1l offcl(al charge of all the election
returns lif this state. T'hey clani that they
discovered illn these returns the election of
the Hiayes ele.ators and Itepubltlean State of
ficlais, alnd they " retqirnsl " ruccordlngly.
The J.emlnowratic Coe ( rvative party claini
that the official returns showed clearly the
nletlion of Tirluin and the l)en,.cratlc Con
servhtlve 8tate oTfficals by seven to ten thou
sltal niajorlty. They also claim that the
'roof Is positive . that absolute alterations of
the, ofic'il retlurns were Inadul after the same
fell into the ollecial hands of Wells, Anderson
& Co.
Now, what question is so important to us of
Loluisiana-yv,, to our children and our child
ren's children- -as this very one as to wheiher
this Itetlrning Board dll or dld not mae
faithful and legal ttnlin ? And if they dl
not make a faithful and legal finding, what
thief, what burglar, what seducer, what
murderer has committld so great a crime
nganinst thile tate and the country at largo ?
On the other hand, If the Returning Board
have fairly and faithfully adminlstered the
law, as in duty bound, what man among
them should fear to go with the oflicial re
turps before such a Hupreme C(ourt its ours
and usk the fullest Investigation ? Do my
fellow-men suspect me of arson or murder ?
Am I spllrned of minn because thereof ? Are
0my wife and children talooed because of my
supptose iniquity ? Is all this greatl burden
existing on a soul that is absolutely con
scious of innocence ? And do my follownmae
propsen to carry mne before the courts of jt$a1
fio? I will go with them; I will outstrip
them In their 'iel ; they shall not drag me;
I will throw mn self at the feet of juiitice In
advanc. of their corming, and I will confocild
them with the judiclal declaration of my In
lice ine.
Much is the inevitable impulse of a man
,onscious of his integrlty. When a man
shrinks from investigation, when he would
pvold it by taking to any of the by-paths
known to the lawyer or the politican, he tr-t
flxes In the public mirl the conmviction that he
Is guilty of all that Is charged against hibn.
The way is clear to Wells, Anderson &A o.;
they are guilty or innocett; If the latter, they
have nothing to fear from grand juries and
Mtate's attorneys.
But hlue there been a bargain to shield
them from the power Iof the law? And if yes,
who has mrinle it?
If there has been, then law, common sense
ari morality have been outraged. No man
ofNt of lnen who hold either directly or in
directly the reins of State government had
the shadlow of right to agree with any other
man or set of men that criminals before the
law should be held Intact in consideration of
any political arrangement. In view of the
great excitement consequent on the terrible
suffering to which our people had been for
years subjectled, It may have been wellto
promino exemption from persecution of the
mlserable wretches who have preyed upon us,
but no more than this.
Commonon sense should have taught that any
such bargain was the sheerest political folly
Imaginable. All this IReterning Board busi
ness is simply part of the current history of
Louisiana, and history Is not made for us
alone whoto-day lartleipate in its making; it
is the inheritedl property of our children and
our children's children, alnd they will realize
it mnore than we do if it is reputable, infinitely
le4ss If it is disreputable.
Did Wells a nd Anderson faIrlf count the
returns and declare the electio() Yes. Then
what Is the position of our Executive and
people? Why, they are revolutionists of the
worst order, and destroyers of the funda
mental princlples of republican government,
On the ninth day of January, 1977 they sub
stitutted the bayonet and bullet for the de
crees of the ballot-box ; they overthrew legiti
mnate' governlment, and they deserve bangin
Did Wells and Anderson fairly orunt th.
returns and de(l're the election ? No; a
thousand times we all say no. Then dkli
they violat, their official oaths and enter into
a conspiracy to crush out the will of the pe
plo, as expressed at the ballot-box; and h
did this not as men, but as public offlci
formally commissioned as guardians of the
expressedr will of the p ople, and they deserve
to he hanged as high as Hfaman if the law
permits it.
If the Exeotntive shields Wells and Ander
son, even by a look, he vitiates the history of
his own administration while he steps clear
beyond any official line of power. If he
sanctioned any agreement to shield these
men from the law he did wha tbe had no right
to do.
And s, with President Hayes. If he bar
gained >or the safety of Wells and Andersmn,
either directly or indirectly, and now fears to
see them tried before an incorruptible bench
the proof is clear that he kunew beforehamn
that he was not elected -awl that he knows
and feels it now.
I say, then, that any such arrangement as
that said to have ben nmade by our Execu
tive and the President is toeo absurd to talk
about. It violates commrnon sense, and neither
of these parties could afford to deface his ad
ministration in that way.
That any such arrangement could be made
without violating ordinary morality now san
will assert, and I am cirtain that our Efuea
tive will be found on the right side in ques
tions if that nature. Hisf whole character
proolA ms it, and his ptlace in our history dle
mands it.
Let Wells, Anderson and every other pub
lie malefactor stand up before the law and
take the conseriquenets. If I steal or murder,
and am caught at it, I must sufler. I have no
patent for immunity. The poor devil who
steals a loaf of bread for his hungry children
is hurried off to the penitentiary. Let the
greater villain, who would rob a whole people
of what is far more valuable to them than
brea. and that when clothed with the garb
of o , be dealt with at least as fairly. But,
more than all, let us be true to the escutcheon
of our Htate, and let us prove to the world now
that we have not hieen,and are not now, the un
civilized banditti we have been proclaimed.
Le/t us opein up the infamous history of the
villains who have persercutedl and defamed
us these eight long years, and thus
vindicate our whole cournse of opposi
tion to and aggresion against our oppres
sors. Either Wells, Anderson, Kellogg,
Packard, and all the rest are good and in
nocent men, and we the reverse, or we are the
innocent and they the guilty. Even now,
Blaine, Chamberlain & Co. are denouncing us
over the North and our defamation will be
their shibboleth in and out of Congress from
this time to p188. Our silence will be a stick
furnished to break our own heads.
Go on, Mr. Attorney General, and do your
whole duty. The people are with you.
