Senator West presented the creden tials of P. B. S Pinch back as the senator fleeted from Louisiana for the term ex piring March 4, 1879, and they were .read at the clerk's desk. Senator Stierman moved that the cre tlcc'ialsand all accompanying papers us retorrtd to the committee on privi leges an"' elections. Senator Thurman said he wished to know the scope of that motion.

Wlltz, as a crime, was more dantrernns in Its consequences thau the murder of one uunureu or a thousand men. It was me um time In the historv of th"n country' where the minority had usurpeJ me iiitais oi jue majoriiy m mis man ner. The signal gun of all this trouble was tho usurpation of Mr. Wiltz. But ror ins conduct there never would have been any Interference by the Federal power in t'ie Louisiana legislature." Senator Schurz said if the senator was willing to take the report of the house sub-committee which visited New Or leans as true, then he must admit that the grossest frauds were committed by the returning board. Therefore that board -was tbe cause of the trouble. Senator Sherman said he would refer to the returning board, afterward. In bis judgment Wiltz would have been overthrown by revolutionary force had not General DeTrobrland Interfered, and there would have been a scene of blood shed in that hall. Senator Bayard said Wiltz had admin istered the oath to the members who were present, hence the legislature was a lawful body. Senator Sherman said the roll-call bad been denied in that legislature bv the Democrats. Suppose the roll-call had been denied in the house of repre sentatives when General Banks was elected speaker, did any one doubt that there would have been bloodshed? There bad been half a dozen times in the history of tbe country when a re fusal to call the yeas and nays would nave resulted in bloodsbed. with re gard to the five men (whose seats were contested) excluded, uo one can doubt that a majority of that legislature was Republican, and nothing could excuse or defend the lawlessness of Wiltz in this matter.

They had rather win by force than gain by fairness. iie sent to uie clerk's desK and had ; secure the people of Louisiana the right . of self-government, but they must them selves respect the rights. ! Senator Johnston said there had been j much general denunciation during this debate of southern people, and they had .been assailed with tli nimnxr liittornet State i He was willing to compare Virginia with any of the other States in the Union, north or south, in respect to obedience to law and observance of the rights of Jaw, and he doubted the sin cerity of those senators who. made so much here of what they called attempts io stir up a new rebellion.

Stouehton. a Carpenter received 40; Washburne, 12; took an unprejudiced view of the whole matter. It was the duty of Kellogg to put down that Irregularity iu the legis lature. Iho oath which he had taken compelled him to interfere. He could not do so by calling upon tbe State militia, because his call would not have been obeyed. Underall the diillcultics which surrounded him he was perfectly right in calling on the military power of the general govern ment. General DeTrobrland went into that legislature without any intention to trample on the liberties of any one. He went there to put out five men who had Rublee, 2; Dixon, 2; scattering, 3 On the first formal vote Carpenter received 44; Washburne, 13; Rublee, 1; Fair child, 1.

His appearance was greeted with tremendous applause. He made an address. The Democrats had a caucus, but adjourned without making a nomination. NEBRASKA. Omaha, January 22 Judge Lundy witnarew irom tne senatorial contest at no business there. His colleague fThur- . ten o'clock this morning and the oppo- man had asked him if he approved of sition to General Thayer then agreed that. He Sherman approved of it as the President of the Cnited States did. To call this Louisiana trouble a great historical outrage where the rights of the people had been trampled upon, was simply making a mountain out of a mole-hill. Governor Kellogg had un doubted right to call on the President to put down domestic violence. The legis laturc was not in session, and the consti tution exprjissly provides that the gov ernor in that case may call on the Presi dent for aid. What was the result of that Interference? No" blood was shed, but five men who had no business there were excluded. The legislature would have acceu on mo cases or tnese members He had seen a Republican house seat Democratic representatives, and a Dem ocratic house seat Republican represent atives. He had no doubt tbe legislature would have performed its duty accord ing to law. Senator Thurman asked if his col league did not know that the body claim ing to be the Louisiana legislature seat ed live men in place of five put out, wuuoui any invesugnuon wnaiever. Senator Sherman said he did not know it, bnt if it was so hehoped con gress would do Its duty when the ques tion came before it in the admission of a senator. Continuing his argument he said he had never voted yet to recognize the election of 1872, but Kellogg had been installed as governor, and recog nized as such by tbe local antborities of Louisiana, by the supreme court of the State, ty the President of the United States, and by the action of the house of representatives. Whatever might be the opinion of senators as to the rights of Kellogg, no one would question bis power to act while in possession of tho office. He next referred to the tele grams of General Bhridan. and said the senators on the other side did the gross est injustice to that officer and General Grant. When all the facts In the case became known, it was asctrtained that General Grant knew no more about ' what took place in New Orleans on the fourth Instant than the senators them selves. Genera Sheridan was there and saw these disturbances, and in the ex citement of tho moment sent the tele gram so much complained of. This was all the gallant soldier did to bring down all this denunciation on himself. THe upon Hon. A. S. Paddeck. Republican. formerly acting-governor of Nebraska, when a Territory.

The many mineral springs in Kentucky are not the least surface indi cations of mineral deposits. In this county they are numerous and abuu daut, but comparatively unknown. Jef ferson county furnishes hydraulic ce ment, which is widely known as Louisville cement; the Mam moth cave contains saltpetre enough to supply the whole country; the Blue Lick spring water has a world-wide rep utation, and is sold everywhere abroad. Other counties furnish crystal and me dicinal salts, oil, and superior sandstone for building. It is computed there is more iron and coal in Kentucky than in Pennsylvania, which from these pro ducts has mainly derived its wealth and power. "In addition to these attrac tions for capital, skill and muscle, more lucrative and still greater mining in dustry is springing up in Livingston and Crittenden counties. The centripetal force of an inland watershed here pre sents the Cumberland, Tennessee, Green, Barren, Wabash. Ohio, and those other navagable rivers, rolling their waters from every point of the compass to.this common basin, whence they are discharged south by the Mis sissippi. We here find igneous stone, tne n?sure vein, witn waii-rocc, stand ollkial report of General Sheridan that i iug at a dip of forty-five degrees, and three thousand five hundred murders had been committed since 1866.

Ho r viewed the working of the electoral college for the last fifty years, and in r jjclusion, said he gave bis cordial as pcut to this important change, which Senator Sherman, on resuming, said that if General Sheridan was to be pun ished for the bad advice given to con gress, then, Lord, save all the people of mis country who bad sent thousands of Impracticable tchemes to congress. Gen eral Sheridan had not declared that the whole people of Louisiana were ban ditti. He said that the leaders of the White League were.

The resolution was tabled and the con vention adjourned to twelve o'clock to morrow. During the balloting Messrs. Wynn and Peters of Shelby voted seven times ror btepnens. Tne former also voted for Bate. Tho excitement continues high, but no opinion can yet be given. I think Johnson's chauces are better, as he re ceived the votes of forty-one different members to-day, but not on any one ballot. His friends are elated to-night, and predict his election. I do no: think any of tne present candidates can effect a successful combination. The con test will be prolonged till Monday or Tuesday, maybe longer, unless a de cided strength be developed by some candidate to-morrow. This is hardly probable. Ex-Governor Harris will be nominated wnen tnere is an assurance i of his receiving a general and decided ' support. None of the candidates will i withdraw, and unless there be a change I on the part of the members much time will be wasted to defeat Johnson, whose j strength is greater than his opponents j expected. LATEST DISPATCH. j Special to tUo Appeal.) XT . tn . .... - ' iAaivxi.x.E, tesk., January zs, I a. m. The senatorial excitement is great. Johnson's friends bellevo he will be elected to-morrow. The opposition has not been able to unite against him, and the indications are that he vill be elect ed. Judge Houck, a member of the last legislature, was before the investigating committee to-day. He was questioned as to the reason of his voting for the funding bill, and asked if Horace May nard aud Brownlow did not advise him to support it. Witness stated that he was opposed to the original bill, as it might admit war bonds and others deemed non-obligatory, but conferred by telegram and mail with Maynard and Brownlow, who fa vored the bill after it was amended, the former recommending tho funding of the school bonds. The Republicans held a caucus aud agreed to support the bill after it had been amended. This was tho reason of his changing his opin ion not for a money consideration. Wm. Rule, of the Knoxville Chron icle, testified that he did not know of any money being paid to members of the last legislature. John M. Frierson, of Colurubia,arrived to-day and testified before the Hobb3 in vestigating committee to-night that he understood that Hobbs and House had made an asreement to divide the nrofits 3f the office, whereby tho latter was to So chief clerk. He denies Hobbs's state ment that he (Frierson) paid him the money for the office, or had anything to do with the transactiou. House told him he was to bo chief clerk; Hobbs spoke of House, but did not consider that any agreement existed between them; told him Duncan offered him five thousand dollars for the office; Hobbs thought it worth moe, and figured it up to twenty-six thousand dollars; witness exone rates Governor Brown and Colonel Burch from all knowledge or complicity in the transaction ; he absented himself because he did not wish, by his evidence before the committee, to violate the con fidence reposed ,in him by House and Hobbs; he did not know of any money being received by members of the legis lature to vote for Hobbs, or of any moneyed- combination to induce his or anybody else's election.

The programme was entirely new and comprised many sparkling musical gems, wliich were ad mirably given by Messrs.

Mr. Barlow appeared as "Old Black Joe," and created such a furore as to receive a triple encore. Mr. George Wilson's ballad of pathos was pathetic in the extreme, and was heart ily encored. Primrose and West danced, aud saug capitally, and the entertain ment concluded wi'h Mr. D. L.

A member who had favored the ad. journment of the convention because the house bad adjourned, when his name was caller wanted to know where his vote would be recorded, to which Mr. Noblett lesponded by requesting that it New Orleans, January 22 Messrs. Hoar, Wheeler, Frye and Maishall, of the congressional committee, arrived last night. They had a primary meet ing to-day and counsel of either side submitted the points of their cases as follows: Points submitted BY THE REPUBLICANS: First That we propose to show that there were over ten thousand Republi can voters intimidated from voting tlie Republicau ticket first, by the Colfax massacre; second, by the Coushatta massacre; third, by the White League conspiracy; fourth, by violently depos ing parish officers throughout the State aud installing illegal M'Enery officials; fifth, by general proscription and perse cution of Republicans; sixth, by the in surrection of September 14th. Second That the White League is an organized conspiracy against State gov ernment, and confederated with kindred organizations through the south, and that its object is the overthrow of the reconstructed government and virtual annulment of the constitutional amend ments, and that one of its dangerous results is au extensive revival of the old hostility against the United States gov ernment. Third That the pretended Wiltz or ganization of the house of representa tives on January 4th, was a revolution ary mob and entirely destitute of legality, aud that it was part of a conspiracy to revolutionize the entire State govern ment. Fourth We desire to submit evidence upon political assassinations and mur ders, proscription in theaters and other places, and the expulsion of colored children from schools ly mobs. POINTS BY THE CONSERVATIVES: First That the election of 1874 was a free and fair, as well as a peaceable elec tion, on the part of the Conservative party, and that the Conservatives car ried the election, procuring a majority of twenty-nine in the house and ten senators, and their 8tate treasurer by four thousand and odd ma jority, and at least one additional mem- ' ber of congress, not returned by the re turning boad. i Second That the returning board fal sified their result by illegal and fraudu lent practices. Third That the only intimidation practiced was by the Republican colored people against the colored Conserva tives by the use of United States troops, under orders of the United States marshal on or about election day to intimidate and deter white Conserva tives from voting. Fourth That there is a general pros tration of the material interests of tho State by a bad and corrupt government, MUNCE Of typhoid fever, January 21, 1&75, I Uenky I.
