LETTERS FROM THE PEOPLE. tain a tbe verdict of a petit jury, and it may be said with equal truth that there ia nothing' bo uncertain aa the decision of the judges of the United States supreme court. According to the opinion just rendered, Florida and Louisiana, which voted for Tilden. are to be counted for Hayes, and Oregon, which voted for Hayes, is to be counted for Tilden. This result will inevitably follow the decision that has already been made, anleea tho high com mission organize itelf into a committee of bulldozers, and permit the electoral vote of Oregon to be cant as directed by a majority of the people, while stifling the voice of the people of Louisiana, which SUte gave a ma jority of eight thousand for the Democrat. Accord lag to the decision just rendered in the Florida cate, "no matter how fraudulent the electoral vote of any State may be, no matter how apparent that fraud, nor how glaring the rascality by which the result was obtained, the teoDle of the United States have abso lutely no remedy, but muet submit to be gov erned by a President not entitled to the office. Such a state of affairs was never dreamed of by the founders of the repub lic, else we would certainly have had unmistakable language in the constitu tion bearinar oi the subject. Bat it must be evident to every one not wilfully blinded by partisan prejudices that such a monstrous in' terpretation as tbe Rjpublicivns put upon tbe law is foreign to all iJ--aa of right and justice, and was nover intended by its framers. It is simply Mexicauizing a nation which has al ways held itself up before the world at a model republic. What is the use of an elec tion? Wby should we pretend to be guided bylaw, when suJi scoundrels as Wells can nullify the action of the people and declare who shall be President? The action of tne commission is enough to make well-wishers of oar republican form of government pause and look into the future with gloomy forebod-ina-" The appointment of a committee for ar bitration avert the posaibili ty of war and anar chy, as the decision will be acquiesced in by the people. Bat it is a decision fatal to a free ballot. What has been done in Florida and Louisiana may be repeated in other States. Wells and his returning board are elected for an indefinite term of service, and it is dacided by the nupreme court judges ef the United States that they can cast the vote of Louisiana as they please, although the State mat have given a majority of one hun dred thousand agsinst the candidate for which the Stale is made to vote by fraud.

A Loa-lcal Reanlt. Editors Appkaii Being a member of Mr. DameU s church, I am a little hurt at what he said about women. I think it has a very bad effect on thr worldly oeonle.

Editors Appeai As a lover of peace and good order, and an advocate of strict laws rigidly enforced, I have made up my mind tliat there is an absolute necessity that some body be shot, though I am willing to admit that I prefer that some other party do the (hooting. Either some reckless scoundrel has got to be sacrificed in this manner, or one of these day your enterpnmng reporter will have to record the death of a few good men, women or children at the hands of villainous drivers or the heels of furiously-driven horses and mules. I have been carefully observing this growing evil of fast-driving for a long tiiu'j, and have come to the conclusion that while a few years ago a pedestrian's rights were respected by some, now they are ignored by nearly all of those who drive or ride through the strtets of Memphis. This is the j only city in the country where it seems to be i understood that pedestrians should be "run Ohio and Illinois will soon become democratic. ; down at every street-crossing or corner. But tr. r.revent tliia nothing is'ieauiredbut for! The "jehus" never tighten their reins, but the Radicals to organize returning boar-Li, with powers to make a return of the electo ral vote in accordance to their peculiar no tions as to how they wanted tho State vote. If this be the rule in future elections, there will be nothing to prevent such common wealths as may happen to have Republican State administrations from being counted for the Republican candidate, provided these ad ministrations will it so, no matter what the verdict of the people of such States may be. In other words, the election in the end rests with the canvasaen, and not with the people. Is not that the declaration which the grand com miasion, by a vote of eight to seven, has just maue? Clear proof of fraud, unquestioned rascality amount to nothing, say Evarts and the other counsel for the Hayes electors. Wells and M'Lin have said that Louisiana and Florida have gone for Hayes, and there fore thuy must be counted for him, notwith standing what the equities of the case may be. It is a melancholy commentary on the highest judicial tribunal of the land that its members have disclosed by their votes on the question of going behind the returns that they are utterly unable to rise above party feeling. The only hope of the Democrats, as we have already oen, is in Oregon. If Stearns's and Keliogg's "broad seals," which now seem invested with so much sanctity, give Florid t and Louisiana to Hayes, the same "broad seal" will give the vote of Ore gon to Tilden. It is a strange law which re verses the vote of these three States, and makes the people speak as they never spoke at the ballot-bjx: but the solons of the su preme court have no decided, and the mock ery upon the ballot-box must be observed by the people. The independent Arkantian talks inde pendently and honestly when it advije the people of that State that its "indebtedness " should be sifted. Sweeping resolutions of 4 repudiation will di.grce our State and " people by placing us in a false position be " fore the world. The people will not affix the seal to their chame at the ballot-box; " they prefer to remain poor with self-respect ' than to aid disgrace to their poverty. Ex " amine thoroughly into our bonded indebt- edness, and see what our creditors have to say, before resorting to any extreme meas " uiws. Protect the interest of the State "and people, but do not disgrace it and them." This is both fair and candid. So is the following from the Boone County Record. It say: "If a just settlement can M be had on fair and juat terms, we say let it " be made. These bonds have now but a " nominal value in the market, owing not so "much to the inability of the State to pay, " as to the suspicion of fraud that attaches to " them. They are now worthless in the "hands of holders." We shall, therefore, " expect from the owners of these bonds a very liberal proposition." W understand that the dom, cats and sows are going mad In and around Lagrange, Choc taw county. Tbe orUrta of tbe trouble 1 thus stated too: About six m jntbs ago a Hue dog belonging to a lad was bino by another dog supposed to be mad. Tbe lady being both uncertain about tne re- suit, ana w io Kill so valuable a dog, concluded to mm canueu aiiui conduced aoouf tbe matter. 6be kept blm chained until a abort time since, wben, on seeing no symptoms of hydrophobia, she turned blm loose.

The debate on ths repeal of the dog-law would thereafter be short, sharp and decisive. The poor sheep, who do not now seem to havs any friends would then havs a majority ia both houses' and ths vote would prove that ths dog had lud bisday.

Now all this can be stopped very easily. If one or two reckless drivers are shot, the otb ers will goon conclude that they have no par ticular reason for constantly endangering the lives of pedestrians, borne of our good citi zens will "hoot" at such a suggestion; but their attention may be called to tne fact that several years ago, when the Nicolson pave ment made tast-dnving so deiignuui, two men were run over and killed one Sunday after noon.

Pnrnnu Appeal To extricate the coun- trv from its present great troubles there seems to my mi ad but one course to be pur n4 to-wit; Let Mr. Tilden or Mr. Hayes, one or the other, come out and resign in favor of his greedy opponent. Such a course would add more honor to him exhibiting such lofty Mtm than lieinrr President. While the n uar re Line over the votes of the States of Louisiana, Oregon and Florida, and spending millions of the people's money in a mere farce, let one or the other of them coiae out openly before the country and re sign. Now this would give peace, quiet, and satisfaction to the country. If either of these honored aspirants for the highest office in the giftef the people, and in this age of degen eracy, greed, and thirst for the loaves and fishes of office, it would exhibit a noble spirit of unselfish patriotism that would bury par t saais m in an ignoble grave.

Liggett he puoa. Xenia News the office in which he learned his trade, as a printer. He went to Kansas in October, 1856. He worked at the case in the Herald of Freedom office that fall and winter, untd George W. Deitzler. Lvman Allen, and a few others, thought it time to go west, iney bought a W vandotte 'float. gave Plumb an interest in it, and located the town of Emporia, in the Neosho valley, then tne limn oi somnwestern settlement m h.an sas. Plumb started the Lmporia Xeirf. paper that still lives, and newsy and sharp, editorially. He was a member of the Leaven worth constitutional convention in 1858, and took a very active part in all of the free State struggle. His connection with the Xetca lasted till I860. He was first elected to the legislature in November, 1861, and was the first reporter of the supremo court. On the twelfth of August, 182, he began raising men lor tne n-ieveutn ivaiisaa, in which regi- 1 1 - i . - i i - , . meat uo was a cupuun, major aim neutenant- colonel. Another major in that regiment. Edmund G. Ross, has been a United States senator, and ita colonel, Thomas Ewing, was elected to congress last fall from Ohio. Plumb served in the southwest, in Missouri, and the Indian lerntorv and the northwest, and ui Nebraska and Wyoming, and did not come ia from the plains to be mustered out until September, 1865 after a year's service against Indians. In November, 1866, he was elected to the house, and chosen speaker. The next fail he was again elected to the bouse, and reported the resolutions indorsing tne impeachment ot President Johnson. After the war he formed a law partnership witn Houert XL. nut? tries, and was verv suc cessful at the bar. In 1870 he edited Stran g Onto Juattce, adapting it specially to the Kan sas practice. In 1872 he supported Horace Greeley for President. Colonel Plumb has an abundance of nerve and courage, and will n-t be afaid to vote with the minority if thut sine is ngnt. in is- ne was an unsuccessful candidate for United States senator. He might haye been elected to congress last fall. mm was irenerauy Denevea to nave made a great mistake in refusing a sure thing. We were verv much disappointed in heanno- h: loose financial views in a speech he made last summer, and in his recent indorsement of the same folly at lopeka. But he is still vounrr and bright enough to get over that nonsense. On the whole, Kansas has done well. She has elected a good writer, an apt and ready de bater, a successful lawyer, a first-class man of business, and a young man whose whole manhood has been spent on her soil. He ha educated himself and made his own fortune by hard work and industry, beginning active life on the extreme frontier." A Hew Hplrtt Hedlnm. Okolona (Hiss.) Southern States. "A little over two years ago a member of the family fell ill. A physician was summoned to the bedside of the invalid. This physician took a deep interest in the subject of spiritism had made it a study and had become a convert to its teachings. luring the course of his professional visits to tho house of the family, he became cquainted with the eldest daughter, and he as at once convinced, from his knowleden of psychology, that she was in possession of far more than ordinary mediumibtic powers. She was ignorant of the fact herself, had n .-v.-r r..i ! ):rit-li - in a word, her life liad been, in all respect the Lie ot a quiet country girl. Abe physi cian concluded to teat her mediumistic power, and, with that object in view, he took a table, cleared it of all tho books and trifles with which it was loaded placed it in the center of the family Bitting room, threw a dark shawl over it, and then reiuested Miss to seat herself in a chair about two feet away from it. The young lady complied. The physician then took a large dook, iaia a piece oi white paper and a very 1 L 1 J i, - 1" 1 1 . 1 snort ieaa pencil on tne ua oi it, and witn it thus arranged, he put it in the right hand ot the medium, at the same time requesting hr to noia it unaer tne table, one did so; her lett hand in the meantime hanging at her Bide. Instantly raps were heard. The vol ume was drawn torth, and a message was found written on the paper. As the tnessa: in question referred to family affairs we will not reproduce it here. On another occasion the young lady heard a perfect shower of raps ui the room where she was sitting, and. act ing on the impulse of the moment, she picked up a slate and pencil and thrust them with one hand under the table. . She had scarcely done this before raps were heard, and, look ing at the slate, she found the side of it part ly covered with writing. The phenomenon had taken place in the twinkling ot an eve. Tbe words hod been Hashed upon tb slate. Flhd is the only word that will convey any idea of the rapidity with which the writing had been done. We might par ticularize a number of warnings which the family received, in a similar way, from time to time, in regard to their household affairs warnings which were heeded, and which saved them petty troubles on more occasions than one. It is the sheerest folly to say that this independent handwriting was the result of a trick or a device of any land on the part of the medium. It was a physical impossi bility for her to do the writing while holding the book or slate with one band, while the other was in full view of those who witnessed the remarkable phenomenon. Moreover, the rapidity with which the handwntinc was done was sufficient, of itself, to preclude such an idea. Ovor Prod art Ion In Railroad.

February 10. Representa tives Hurlbut, Townsend, Drnford, Crapo and Joyce have made tleir minority report in the Louisiana investigation, concluding as follows: "For the first time in tho history of t! if country it has been attempted to destroy tho lawful and formal expression of a Stale in the election of a President by assuming power in the house of repreientatives to examine into any and all polls, and to purge the elec tion; to make itself a returning board, and determine by a partaan vote what Louisiana ought to have done. We regard it as the most fatal attack ever attempted npon consti tutional right, as a gross usurpation ot power, and as subjecting, in its natural development, the entire question of the election of Presi dent to the will cr decision of the house of reDresentatives. What has leen attempted wife, on uiu same piuiCrpie, uy "some " trCiiirf dominant party in any other state whose vote mar ue 111 ice way or meir party canaiuate, The cry of fraud is quickly raised, and is readily repeated, and is far too easily be- ueveu. Jiviuence is always ready to sup port mat or - any otner charge, ii any great political advanhie-o is to be cained The only way to preserve the just balances of power is to stand by ana support the formal, deliberate and lawful decision of the tribunal constituted for tho purpose, ordained under uin conHiuuuon oy me nignesr, 5iar.e auinon ty, by laws which have been expounded and sustained by the proper supreme courts. Any o her course is the substitution of gues-work lor legitimate decision, the rule of tha mib for orderly processes of law, the control by the house of representatives, whose days are numbered, for the determination made by tho people themselves, in due and regular form, chosen by themselves. Fassion and prejudice will wear themselves out m time the wild declamations of intemperate orators will soon be forgotten; the rash assertions of party presses will pass from nien'8 minds. and this cuse of Louisiana will, perhaps, be fairly considered, and the verdict of thought ful men will be that the Democratic party of tnat unnappy state are justly to oe neiu re sponsible for tho continuous and organized attempts by force to annul the clear will of the majority. The same calm judgment will declare that the laws of 1870-2 were neces sary safeguards against such organized, ille al forces, and should be approved by all i,u La. lieve in the supremacy of law; that this much-abused returning board acted in the spirit of the law creating them, and that their determination is final in the matter. Holding these views, the minority of the com nnttee submit them, and do not propose to follow m its details an unauthorized dissection of the vote made from. paibVan and biased information by a majority of the commit tee, but prefer to stand upon estab lished law and the deliberate results of the constitutional action of sworn officers of the State solemnly done, performed and promulgated with all the sanctions of the law. rho undersigned submit herewith the reports of the minority members of the sub-committee, which was subdivided, and close this report by offering the following resolution: "Resolred, That the election held for Presi dential electors in Louisiana on the seventh of November, 1876, was examined into, de termined, declared and promulgated by the proper authorities of said State, under all forms of law and in conformity with the con stitution of the United States. ' Florida Investigation. Wasiiinoton, February 10. The commit tee on powers, privileges and duties of the house to-day examined Governor Stearns, of Florida. He stated that about November 13th he sent a dispatch to the President to the effect that prominent men of the oppo site party had arrived in considerable num bers, and he felt he needed the advice of prominent men of the republican party. No reply was received. Question Did you not know that Pierce, at t he time you appointed him, was convicted of felony? Mr. Lawrence objected to the question, saying if no man who had been convicted of felony .verc to tn. ..ppoint-d to office it would thin the ranks of tne democratic party ex ceedingly. He had no authority under the law to withhold upon mere technical grounds a certificate from the etector who had been convicted as a felon and who had been fully restored to citizenship by tree and full par don. Witness telegraphed Secretary Chandler at New York for troops. The dispatch was more in the nature of information, and was sent in reply to a telegram from the Secre tary. Governor Drew, shortly after his in auguration, telegraphed to General Kuger for troops, Louisiana Investigation. Washington, February 10. The commit tee on powers, privileges, etc., of the house inquired this afternoon into Louisiana affairs. John T. Mulherin, of New Orleans, clerk of the returning board, testified: Some affida vits were made by the clerks of the board in the compiling room; don't know whether they were used; nicst any name was signed bo affidavits; witness saw with Little held and Major Eaton slips of papor contain ing tne total of the electoral vote; the ma jority on these of Democrats was about four thousand; saw afterward that a change had been made in the fiaur beard Governor Welle in conversation with Littletfdd in Abell s office; could not hear whut they said; December 4th, saw them again in conversa -tion, in a very low tone, in the clerk's room; saw iaxueneia take from fns desk a paper I ana nuute some erasures; about a quart r of an hour of conversing with Governor Wells; about the beginning of December cnanges were made in the statement of the electoral votes bv order of Judye Davii: Lit- tlefleld told witness that he hadfixed the par ish of Yemon, but he did not say which way or in wiiai manner ne nau nxea it. m ir. T , . ... ao air. lawrence uan t say wnetner any niemoer oi tne ooara knew mat affidavits were being made by the clerks; witness made up some nimaeij, ana signed cross-marks to them; saw Wells and Anderson look at the slips made up by Littlefield, who told witness that he sent them to Governor Packard and Mr. Smith; saw alterations by some of tie clerks on the consolidated s ateuienta from different parishes; changed one himself: the changes were that if the first elector had five hundred and six votes and the third elector two hundred and ten votes, the clerks were directed to increase the latter to tho number of the first vote. Que. Do you know what the consolidated statement is ? Ans. Yes ; there is not a man in the country that knows it any better. J Laughter. J Flanagin and Asbury made changes in the body of the statement. Witness being asked if he was not intoxi cated, repl.ed, "No, sir;" and stated that he drank this morning a glass of ale, a glass of cider, a toddy and cocktail, and also took a couple of cigars. Loud laughter. Witness said that when he first went npon the stand, he handed Judge Cavanee a paper with two questions he wanted asked. They were not asked, and he could not remember what they were. Ques. What was their substance? Ana. That I won't answer. Oues. Why? Witness-Mr. Chairman, is this a proper question to ask of me? Chairman It is, Mr. Mulherin, if you re member, answer the question. Ans. 1 can't remember. To Mr. Field Affidavits made up by the clerks purported to give accounts of violence and intimidation at tho polls; alterations were made in the supervisors' returns, and from these changed statements the final compilations were made.

About elev en o'clock last night, in the billiard saloon of Mr. Evans, an altercation ensued between Mr. Henry Kohn and Mr. Morris Alexander which resulted in mutual blows and the stab bine of the latter, in the loft side with a large pocket-knife by the former. Mr. Alexander was taken to his store, and phy sicians called in, who dressed his wound. Mr. Kohn was taken to jail. Mr. Alexader's wonnd is serious, though not fatal. The cause of the difficulty frrew out of some remarks which Kohn made derogatory to the charac ter of Mr. Alexander's sister.
