Stanley Mathews and Charles Foster then and since then his closest ' mends and most authoritative representatives: that said Brown and his associates had been elected as adversaries of the incumbent, but separated from the great body of their politi cal associates in the house of representatives to carry into effect such arrangement ; that at the time of entering into it they were leading advocates of a bill then pending in said house to grant a large subsidy to the Texas Pacific railroad company, to which the President elect was known to be opposed, and it is a just inference from all the circumstances that while they were willing to deieat his inaugu ration, for this reason they could not venture to act with their political opponents for that object, if such co-operation involved also the surrender of the local governments of the States in question, as well as of their electoral votes to their political opponents; that to re move the obstacles it was stipulated in effect that the incumbent should treat the returns as fraudulent, so far as they affected the local governments of said States, by withdrawing the United States troops, the presence of which alone, it was known, gave them any force; that it thus appears that the constitu tional question so gravely and elaborately de Dated in congress, before the electoral com mission, and in the public press as a question on which the Presidential contest hinged and with which the public mind was so long exer cised, had no part whatever in determining the contest, but it was in tact determined by a body of men elected by one party, but openly acting with their opponents in the in terest of certain railroad corporations at the decisive moment; that every interest of the country is greatly prejudiced and its most vital interests are put in jeopardy by suffering the people to be superseded as the political power, and substituting for them such mon eyed organizations as will pay for defrauding tnem ; that in the opinion of your memorial ists the continued prostration of the business of the country is largely due to the fact that the confidence of the people in the conduct of their public officers is shaken ; that an irresponsible executive of the administration has been installed which has not the support of the country, or either of its great political parties: that this is in conflict with the whole theory of oar institutions, and of those of the mother country, whence they were de rived; that to carry it on so as to get posses sion of the government, the incumbent must seek support from those elected as his oppo nents; that this relation is in ite:t corrupt ing is shown by reason as well as by experi ence; that no useful pnbhc service can be rendered by an administration whose title to power rests on fraudulent election returns manufactured by its own partisans, and made effectual by an agreement with the subsidy and jobbing men of the opposing party; that an indispensible first step to any reform of the public service is to restore the government to the p!Ople: that it is ooly by men who have been elected by the people, and who are free from all entangling alliances with the job bing interests, from which a'l the great abuses have sprung, that any reform can be effected. Your memorialists therefore pray that the needful legislation may be adopted to ascertain, judicially, who was elected President at the recent election, and to give effect to the will of the people, and will ever pray, etc. Mr. Blair advocafed his memorial, urginur its adoption and reviewing cenerallv Presi dent Hayes's title to the office.

January 8. Commander Radgers, commanding the United States ship Adams, writes to the secretary of the navv from the Sandy Toint, straits of Magellan, giving the particulars of the revolt of the gar rison there. The first murder committed geems to have been that of the captain of the company of soldiers, numbering about one Hundred, who were regular artillery troops. They mutilated the captain in a most horrible manner, and then opened fare with artillery upon tiie governor's house. The governor.ou making bis appearance, was knocked in the head and left insensible. He, however, recov ered after sometime and made his escape; his family also escaped almost naked to the woods. The mutineers then released the convicts, and altogether numbered nearly two hundred, armed with rifles. The follow ing day the mutineers committed the most incredible excesses in the way of wanton killing, burning and sacking. Next day the mutineers deserted the place, carry ing off all the public fund and much private property. They burned all the public prop erty and a number of storei; in fact, the best part of the town i in ahes. The streets were strewn with the dead bodies of the killed. Most of the killed were soldiers who had been hootmg each other indiscriminate ly. It m estimated that at least fifty people I were killed, and many of th dead and wounded were burned in the buildings. The hospital was burned with five wounded toen. in ii.

Special to the Appeal. a Jacksotti Mrri., January 6. The third Democratic legislature of Mississippi since reconstruction met to-day, with a very full attendance. There were absent only eleven out of the one hundred and twenty repre sentatives, and five out of thirty-seven sen ators. There are hot two Republican (one colored) senators. Both were elected from districts where the Democrats and Repub licans had fusion tickets, or rather ran only one ticket. The house has six whites who were elected on Independent tickets who classify themselves as Democrats, One whi'e Republican two independent colored Re publican", and trvo fusioii colored Repub licans. The remainder are straight or regu lar Democrats, of which three are colored. The senate organized by electing R. O. Rey nolds, of Monroe, president pro tern. D. P. Porter, of Hinds, secretary; S. W. Langley, of Hindsi sergeant-at arms, and Henry Tay lor coIored), of Panola, doorkeeper. The house elected W. A. Percy, of Wash ington, speaker; George M. Govan, of Marshall, clerk; W. T. Hol land, of Hinds, sergeant-at-arms, and Gilford Vaughan, colored, of Panola, door keeper. The latter was & Democratic mem ber of the last legislature. The contest for speaker was very spirited. Messrs. Tucker, of Chickasaw, Whittaker, of Lauderdale, and Tison, of liee, were the opponents of the successful candidate. Upon the fifth and last ballot the contest waB between Mr. Ti son and Mr. Percy, the vote standing 50 to 58. The impression is general that the ses sion will not last longer than six weeks or two months. By Mail. Occasional Correspondence otthe Appeal. Jackson, January 7. The legislature meets to-morrow. As early as last Sunday morning the members, or, as they are called nere, the "clan, began to trather. and at this writing they assume the appearance of a respectable mob. The grand jury has been in session here for the past several days, and consequently the bar-rooms were closed on Sunday, it being against the statute of the State to sell liquor on that day. This waa a "misfortune" not anticipated by the law makers, and, as I heard one of them say, "a great hardship." To-day the municipal elec tion took place, and the bars were closed again, making two days in succession that no whisky was sold. The town began to sober up. it put on tne appearance and respecta bility ot (to use the expression so often used of late by commercial men) "a good town." But that appearance was deceptive. M'Gill waa elected mayor, and to-night, at eleven o'clock, the whole town is on a bender. It is a frequent occurrence to see the side walk fly up and strike a man on the back ot the head. Several men have shared a like iate since the bars were opened. The mid night revel, carouse and drunk are indulged in by a great many, but it is due here to the we s, or law-makers, to say that they are not a part of the crowd. I have not seen a single one of them drunk have not seen one take a drink. 1 don t know the cause, can t say what it; but I have heard that it is be cause drinks sell for fifteen cents apiece, and there is no credit. I think this is a slander a base slander. It is not only a slander, but it is ungenerous, and decidedly in bad taste for men to speak in this disrespectful man ner of a Democratic legislature. I am almost tenanted to say it is a lie. The nroof ia only circumstantial; I did not see them drink, but some of them have got the strongest breaths of any man 1 ever saw they smell exactly like cloves. There are several distinguished gentlemen in the city. 1 have met General Lowry, Gen eral Tucker, Colonel Stockdale, Judge May ers, Colonel Steel, the speaker of the last house of representatives, and Lieutenant- Governor Sims. I found them to be all clever gentlemen. General Lowry was a candidate before the convention for governor, and came near being nominated. He is the most popu lar mau to-day with the masses in the State. His defeat, so 1 am informed, is in no small degree attributed to the false, malicious and and willful slanders published in a letter by that dastardly coward Josh Morris, alias "Blue-Mass Morris, a gentleman! r1) who affiliated with the Ames-Cardoza-Shaughnes-6ey-Davia, etc., element; but this, I think, is a mistake. Morris, even if he told the truth, could not get an honest man to believe it. As soon as the legislature meets, and there is a bill of importance before the house, I will write you. w. k. 8.

THE LONDON BUDGET. In Constantinople a cry is being raised for the recall of Midhat Pasha. The occupation of Sofia is of great advan tage to the Russians. It gives them a base for operation in Roumelta, opens up the re sources of the country around and makes them, to a certain extent, independent of sup plies from Rou mania, despite the pressure from the palace and threats of dessolution. the Turkish house of representatives have been assailing the government with great freedom and bitterness. They probably have the population of Stamboul on their side, and it ia doubtful whether they would obey a de cree of dissolution even if the government ventured to take such a step. The Standard says the correspondence be tween London and St. Petersburg, respecting the point raised by the British government, has not yet terminated, and we shall proba bly have to wait until the opening of parlia ment before a full explanation is' given of the subjects which have been under discus sion between the two governments. Ihe Dauu iV ews says the Earl of Carnarvon has not resigned the colonial secretaryship. we presume ne nas no present intention oi resigning. Midhat Pasha left Paris to-day for this city. The Times says a rise of prices at the close yesterday was in consequence of a ru mor that an armistice had been concluded. The details of the story were of a very im probable kind, but it sufficed to frighten speculators for a fall into repurchasing to some extent, consequently all stocks rose sharply. United States funds coutinue firm AFFAIRS IN FRANCE. Paris, January 8. The triennial muni cipal elections were held throughout t ranee on bunday last. The delegates of the municipal councils will have a preponderat ing voice in electing senators next year. In Paris seventy-three councillors out of eighty are republican, four are conservative, and three second ballots are necessary. Previ ously there were tefi conservative councillors here. In the provincial towns the republi cans generally were successful, including Marseilles, Rennes, Dijon, Bordeaux, Mont pelier. Rouen. Nancy. Ac-en. Amiens. Ansou- leme, Arras, Booiougne, Bel fort.

As far as heard from, the country districts show con siderable republican gains. it is reported that on the return of M.

It is also reported that the conservative senators intendjto endeavor to elect M.

Colonel Shafter'a Statement Concern ing; Affairs on the Klo Orande, as) made before the Sub-Committee on Military Affairs. Washington, January 8. Colonel Shaf ter was again before the subcommittee on military affairs to-day by request of the com mittee. He produced two letters from Gen eral Naranjo, commanding the Mexican troops on the Rio Grande, addressed to him last August, showing the most friendly feel ings toward him. Lieutenant Bullis gave a circumstantial narrative of the results of his raids into Mex ico in the pursuit and punishment of Indian thieves. The total number of depredating Indians is about two hundred and twenty-live, divided into four tribes. In reply to the ?uestion as to whether it would be possible or a sufficient force to annihilate them, he answered that they were very cunning; they hide their families in their fastnesses, and it was almost impossible to reach and strike them ; there were no offenses to bring on a con flict between the two nations; the thieving In dians have no fear of the Mexicans ; they go in to the towns and openly trade with them. The lieutenant never knew the Mexicans to take any pains to return Btolen property. Ii waa in the power of the Mexicans to punish or exterminate these Indians, who are the source of almost all the troubles. Washington, January 7. The sub-committee on military affairs, consisting of Rep resentatives Banning, Marsh, Bragg and White, this evening examined Colonel W. R. Shatter, of the Twenty-fourth regiment of infantry, commanding the district of the Nu eces, Texas, in relation to affairs on the Rio Grande border, with respect to raiding parties. The colonel mentioned cases of six or seven persons murdered by Indian and Mexican raiders in 1877, and said the num ber of raids was much smaller during the past two years than previously. The object of the invasions was plunder, not to make war. The colonel said his troops first crossed the Rio Grande in May, 1876; be was in search of Lepazes; was seven miles from the town of Saragossa, and forty-five miles from the Rio Grande. The result of hia expedi tion was the killing and capturing of nine teen Indians, the capture of stock and de struction of a village. He kept up his expe ditions all the time with the full consent of the local Mexican authorities. T'ie well-disposed Mexicans were anxious to be rid of the Indians. The first square co-operation of the Mexican troops with the United States troops was under General Falcon. In answer to the question what number of troops .would be p.ebessary to p'rotact Ameri can cituens, he said that if the Mexicans would exert themselves in that direction we have more than enough troops, but if we cross into Mexico for that purpose we have not troop enough. In his expeditions into Mexico he had always been treated with great cordiality by the Mexican officers and by the respectable citizens of the frontier towns. Before the issuance of the order of the war department to cros6 the Rio Grande there did not appear to be any objections on the part of the Mexicans that this should be done, but when the formal order was issued it seemed to the Mexicans an assumption on our part to dictate to Mexico... The order was, however, modified in July, 1877, so as to pro vide that when Mexican troops were pre pared to go in pursuit of raiders ours must stop. The bitterness of feeling expressed on the frontier was by those who nave been robbed of their property. Our citizens on the border are opposed to war; they want protection. He knew of only two instances where the Mexican authorities have returned stolen stock. In one1 to ft Mexican who had ranches oil each side of the river, and In an other to an American. He knew of no in stance in which the Mexicans have refused to surrender stolen property on application. As a fgenfal thing those who have property on this side do not go over lor mat pur pose, saying that it was useless. Ho did not think theie were any persons on our side of the river who assisted the thieves. The Mexican trjops expressed a strong desire to put a stop to the disturbances which pro duce so . much bard feelinr on both sides river. The Mexican troops, on two or three occasions, have started in pursuit of the raid ers, but their" 'niov'ements were s6 taiuj that they were not attended with success. cen eral Banning inquired of Colonel Shaffer whether there would not fce danger of a col lision resulting from obedience to the order of the war department to pursue, overtake and punish the raiding parties, as well as re take the stolen property, on the Mexican side. The colonel replied that if in pursuance of that order it became necessary to follow the In dians or Mexicans into a town garrisoned by troops in sufficient number to successfully re sist American interference, or if the citizens were strong enough to offer resistance, it would result in a fight; but in this opinion he might be mistaken, Before taking the re sponsibility of producing hostilities; he would prefer to let an unimportant stealing party go. He repeated that the most f riendly and cordial relations existed between the military officers on both sides, so far as professions go. General Dias was trying to prevent the raids and be a good neighbor, but his practice has not amounted to much. WASHINGTON.

At the cabinet session to-day it was deter mined that the secretary of the treasury should as soon as practicable invite further subscriptions to the public loan of four per cent, bonds, and so. conduct it that all sub scribers in all - parts of. the United States shall have a free and easy opportunity to subscribe to bonds of any amount authorized by law, through the national banks and bankers of established credit, and to give every facility allowed by law to convert postal orders, certificates of deposits and United States notes into coin for the payment of bonds, and where necessary, to sell coin to facilitate subscriptions, and to favor any legislation that congress might see fit to adopt to promote the deposit of savings for funding the national debt. The cabinet also discussed the report of the board of engineers appointed by the secretary of war to examine into the Eads improve ments of the mouth of the Mississippi river, and approved the same, whereupon it was decided that Eads shall receive the amount of money appropriated by congress for his payment, upon compliance by him with the provisions of the law. TIIK DAIRY Discussed by the Dairymen In Thir teenth Annual Convention, at Cleve land, Ohio The Dairy, its Uses and Abuses. Cleveland, January 8. The thirteenth annual convention of the American dairy men's association convened here to-day, with a large attendance of dairymen from the dif ferent States and Canada. The first session was called to order at eleven o'clock and S. D. Curtis, of Utica, New York, vice-president of the association, presided. The forenoon was occupied with butter and cheese talk by different members. The afternoon session was given up to the discussion of oleo-magerine against butter, and the coniition of the fat in milk, and the changes by which they are converted into butter, by Dr. hi. A. Malt, ot New York. The evening was devoted to the discussion of the refuse of the dairy, its use and abuse, by J. H. Wanzer, of Elgin, Illinois, and J'.S. Vanduzer, of Elmira, New York; and the manure and drainage in dairy farming, by VY B. Straight, of Hudson, Ohio. Mr. J. H. Reall, of Philadelphia, addressed the convention on the present, past and fu ture of cheese and butter, in which he con trasted the prosperity of the dairy industry with other branches of farming business an d manufacturing, which had outrivaled cheese and butter, were now bringing rela tively higher prices than ever before. The exports last year to Great Britain, our chief customer, had amounted to one hundred and ten million pounds, worth over thirteen mil tion dollars. A large increase over the past, and susceptible of still greater enlargement. Butter Lad also been exported to the amount ot fourteen million pounds. Francis D. Moulton, of New York, spoke at length on the manufacture of dairy salt. The committee will be in session Wednes day and Thursday. Hystertoas Disappearance of J. C. Fryer, Manager of the Pappenhelm Opera Troupe. St. Louis, January 8. The disappearance of J. C. Fryer, manager of the Fryer-Papen-heim and Adams opera companies, now at DeBar'8 operahouse, in this city, causes great anxiety to his friends. He was last seen by members of the company at the Louisville hotel, Louisville, on Friday evening last, just before retiring for the night. Next morning his absence was noticed, and very diligent inquiry was made all that day and until the departure of the company for St. Louis, Sunday morning, and has been kept up ever since, but without finding single clue to his whereabouts. A telegram from his family, in New York, says he has not arrived heme. He took no baggage with him from the Louisville hotel, but left there a carefully-packed trunk and valise. His dis appearance is entirely unaccountable to the members of the company. The State of New Jersey. Trenton, January 8. The legislature or ganized by electing George C. Ludlow presi dent of the senate and John Fagnn speaker of the house. The governor's message shows the State finances to be in good condition, and says: "I anticipate no embarrassment in confining the ordinary State tax to one mill; that rate will produce five hundred and sixty six thousand two hundred and fifty dollars, -which will be the only revenue raised direct ly from the people for ordinary expenditures. The net earnings of the State prison last year were twelve thousand one hundred and twenty-nine dollars. The whole expense tf the fctate on account of the riots was fifty-fivo thousand dollars." The governor recom mends that the Stevens battery be tendered to the United states government, proviatu the government will reimburse the State for all expenses and complete it, or that it be sold at public or private sale.
