This will afford advertisers an unusual op portunity of speaking to their customers, and we remiad oar friends of the fact in the hope that they will embrace it, sending in their ad ertiaemeati to at at as early an hour as potwib.a on Wednesday (to-morrow.) It is with deep regTetJthat we announce this morning the destruction by fire of the elevator and the steamer Capitol City, at tended, we fear by a heavy loes of life. The elevator had become so necessary to shippers, was so convenient for steamboats putting off and taking on freight, and. sffbrded such protection for goods, that it is difficult to realize what we are to do until the once capacious and mast ire structure is replaced by one of equal value. It was one of the "institu tions' of the city, an evidence of mercantile progress and growth and a witness to the spirit of enterprise which has in the tea years encountered so It cort one hundred and dollars, and JT was .'not with valuable freights, its many obstacles, twenty thousand insured. Filled destruction will carry loss to freighters and insurance corapn nies of which it is impossible just now to esti mate, but which must be very large. By the lives we fear are lost more valuable than all else who can tell what sorrow and anguish is to be carried to hemes that at the time of the fire were wrapped ia "slumbers sweet,'' no dream of danger or death disturbing. Another sad chapter in the history of our city, let us hope that, as ia the case of all the others, we will rise superior to it. and by the time the fall season sets ia will have made ample provision for the trade which the elevator so well commodated. ac- Rchors are circulating in London that Emperor William contemplates abdicating. Fbom Nashville we learn that the wioter wheat will harvest not more than half a crop The acreage planted in oats ia reported as large. But little damage done from rust. Winter oats promise an average crop. There will be one-filth more corn planted in the State this year than last. Farmers have generally succeeded in securing a good stand. The crop is tolerably clean, and looks very promisine. Early "roaster" ears are abundent; late corn is tasseliog. Crops gen' e rally are very promising. Fruit is a bun' dant, with the exception of nodes. testimony was false; that her htuband was murdered and she wai assaulted, not by Democrats, as she testified then, but, as she has always believed, by a colored man who had threatened -O kill her husband, and that the quarrel had nothing to do with politics. Eliza, it will be remembered, was John Sherman's principal witness. She posed for him on a sofa, and exhibited, under his instrnc- 1 03s. old runninar seres she sid she had received at the hands of the ko klux. Iler prevent husband, Pritcb ard, testifies that the statement pub lished in the Herttld is the version which he has always heard from her. It is confirmed further, savs the Herald, by the fact that though Kellogg remained governor of Lou isiana until the first of January following Eliza's dramatic appearance, and though he had not only his own Metropolitan police to send all over the State, and his own courts, but also the help of United States troops, no attempt was ever made to bring to justice the persons who were supposed to be the authors of a shocking outrage. Eliza Pinkston dropped out of sight as soon as Mr. Kellocg's friends were done with her, as An derson, Weber, Pitkin and. even Mrs.. Jenks did until the red-beaded journalist thought forbearance had ceased to he a virtue, and, because he had not received what had been promised him, he would blow the whole crime and bring Sherman, Mathews and all the rest of the visiting statesmen to the bar of public opinion.

And it ia such people as these perjurers and their principals to whom Mr. Hayes and some of his cabinet have been giving office re deeming, to their own shame, the promises of visiang statesmen that these tools should be "taken care of." - Ajiint the approaching election the ftmrM famished bv the cemus re port for 1870 are not without inter est. and may prove instructive. The ti- tal population is there set down at 40,226, of which number 24,7o5 are given as whites. .ml is. 471 colored. Of Germans we are credited with 1768. and Irish, 2937. If, in the eicht vearr that have pasted, we hava creased at the rate of fifty per cent, (which, in the absence of any direct emigration, is a very large per rentage), the population ought to be about 60,000, of which 37,000 are whites, and 23,000 colored. Allowing for the greatly increased mortality among the blacks, it would, perhaps, be fair to set th? whites down at 40,000. of which the Ger mans mav be out at 2700. and the Irish at 4500, ia round numbers. ' Constantinople, July 1. The Austrian plenipotentiaries in the cotgress stated that Austria sought the co-operation of Turkey, and did r.ot desire the withdrawal of the Ot toman troop. The Porte's representatives did not formally protest against occupation, but only made some observations, which are now being discussed. THS PEACE CONGRESS TO DISCUSS THE SLAVERY QUESTION. London, July 1. The British anti-slavery society has presented a memorial to Bis marck, to submit to the congress, declaring that the slave-trade be henceforth regarded as piracy, and that slaveiy shall not be recog niz?d us a legal institution by any State in the congress. The memorial states that the trade for the supply of Cuba and the Mo hammedan countries causes the loss of five hundred thousand lives annually in eastern Africa. A THREE HOURS SESSION. Berlin, July 1. The peace congress was in session three hours to-day. The represen tatives of Rou mania were present and made a statement of their claims. It is not expected that their demands will be granted. Tne congress will acknowledge the independence of Roumania only on condition that all reli- be granted hbertv ot worship. It 13 nominated that the Question of the occupa tion ot Bosnia and Herzegovina by Austria will be soon brought before the congress a train and carried to a result. All the Euro rwan nowers have instructed their ambassadors ia Constantinople to urge the Porte to vield. It is reported in many quar ters that the Turkish plenipotentiaries have been instructed to offer merely a formal op- nnsition.

The state of chronic disturbance which has prevailed in East St. Louis for months Dast. culminated this after noon in a fight between a part of the metro politan force and the city marshals, organ ized by Mayor Bowman. It appears that last January the metropolitans, under Chief Kensbaw, too lorciDie possession oi on oi the citv entrinehouses and prison-cells, which had been used s police headquarters, and al though Mayor Bowman has regularly de manded that it be vacated by them and re turned to the city, his demands have been re fnaod Atvuit noon to-dav. Citv-Marshal Walsh learned that there were but three ot the metropolitan force in the enginehouse, and thinking it would be easy to capture it, mustered his deputies at ms own neaaquar tera. and a little more than a block away, and made a dash for it. He was quickly seen. however, and the occupants of the engine house. Officers Wallace and Gleyre. and Turnkey Chapman, barred the door and has tened up stairs, and the two nrst namea ap peared at the windows armed with Spring field rifles. Walsh and his men rushed on the crowd with clubs and revolvers, and found Officer Shock near the door of the en ginehouse, whom they assaulted with clubs . and knocked down, and three pistol shots are said to have bea. fired at him, one of which wound ed him in the head. Marshals Wallace and Gleyre then called upon the crowd to dis perse, when more snots were urea. Aiarsnais Wallace and Gleyre then shot into the crowd, and when the fire was returned Deputy-Marshals Newell and O'Connor fell dead and J as. Doyle was wounded. The marshals then re tired, taking with them their dead. Mayor Bowman in the meantime appeared on the urnnnii. and he savs he narrowly escaped, as one of the men in the enginehouse took de liberate aim and fired, but by a quics jump sideways he avoided being hit, the ball enter ing the ground only a few feet from where he bad stood. While tne ngnt was progressing the alarm-bell of one of the enamehonses was rung, and the metropolitans hastened to headquarters from all directions; but the marshals had retired and nothing farther was done. Mayor Bowman immediately tele graphed to Belleville, the county seat, for Sheriff Weber and the county coroner, who arrived this afternoon. Weber went to the headquarters of the metropolitans andarrest ed Officers Wallace and Gleyre, and the cor oner will hold an inquest on the dead to-mor row. The circumstances leading to wis unior tunate affair are numerous and cover much time and many events, dating as tar oaeir as 1867, when the metropolitan law was passed by the legislature. This law nas reen pro nounced unconstitutional several times by the conrt. but the force has man aged some way to exist. It has been totally ignored by Mayor cowman, woo organism a force of deputy marshals under the city ordi nance, and the result has been two distinct forces of police, which have been at sword's points for months past, and conflicts of a more or less serious nature are of daily oc currence. There are, also, two political fac tions in the city, called Bowman and anti- Bowman, which are very miter ana vinaic tive and pp at no means to damage each other. ayor Bowman says that, even granting' the legality ot the existence ot tne metropolitan ponce commi88ioneru;ituu mo fnrr-a tfiA nricrina! legislature SDecially pro vided that they shall be entirely separate and distinct trom the city or Jast ot. jjouis, ana shall not use nor occupy any of the city's property, and that therefore he or any of his officers had a right to dispossess them of the enginehouse.

Washington, July 1. The Potter com mittee resumed its session to-day. Bowles Baker, the Texas gentleman who sent lengthy tele grams to President Hayes suggesting the appointment of a southern conservative to position, appeared before the commission and declined to either be sworn or to answer any questions propounded to him. The chairman stated that as the committee had no power to compel the witness to testify, during the recess of congress, he would discharge him from further attendance. Representative Foster inquired regarding the published statement of General Butler, that a certain well-remembered speech by Mr. Foster had been prepared by a prominent southern Democrat. General Butler assured Mr. Foster that he labored under a misapprehension. Mr. Fos ter was also assured that there was no inten tion to call him as a witness. Hrs. Jenks reappeared, and retired after testifying that she had a brother named Adolph R. Mur dock, formerly a United States mail agsnt, and recently appointed in . the New Orlatmo customhouse, but she had not been advised of his appointment, which he should have had long ago; she had sought his appoint ment, but was unsuccessful. , Mrs. Agnes D. Jenks was recalled, and testified that she had not seen Secretary Sherman since she had been in Washington in attendance upon the committee. The chairman showed the witness a paper, and asked her if it was in the hand-writing of the person who made the first draft of the so-called Sherman letter? Witness I think not. ' In answer to questions by Mr. Cox, witness stated that at the time of the election Ander son had retusea to return to .ast e euciana parish to act as supervisor unless he was as sured of the protection of the Democrats, and that witness then called on Mr. Patten, chair man of the Democratic committee, in New Orleans, and made arrangements satisfactory to Anderson, and he then returned there. He got a guard, and a special train was cent for him to Port Hudson. JTaa. I. Pearson. a printer of Washington, was called, and identified the printed copies made by him of the certificates in the Louisiana case, stating that the original of the same were brought to his office to be printed, by James H. M'Kin ney, clerk of the electoral commission. Mr. Butler said that at the proper time he would call the attention of the committee and of Mr. Boulds Baker, the recent witness, to certain provisions of law coverning his re fusal to testify. He stated that there was a remedy andapunishment under the law for such cases, whether congress was or not in session at the time. Mrs. Jenks Aaaln. Mrs. Jenks obtained permission to make the following statement: In regard to the testimony given before the committee by a reporter of the Baltimore Gazette, pretending to relate a conversation he heard between Anderson and myself, I de sire to state that it is a mi-take on his part; T never acted as a matador in a Spanish bull fight, or said anything about Louisiana mat ters affecting Secretary Sherman, ''like a red rag shown to a bull;" I also wish to deny as untrue what Mr. Glasscock testified to, that I said that I would "make it hot" tor secret- r uuuuic nui'iuaiw. i , . , , .1 n Governor Cullpm. in reply to the dispatehes aermjnoj ur eber ana f once uom- M"u,u"i - " 7fC THE HEAT UACB. One of the worst of the many phases that crime assumes nowadays, is the abuse, the whipping, the outraging and murder of women. Scarcely a day pasws that the tele graph does not bring us intelligence of some noor married or single woman, young gin. or little child who has fallen a victim to the Inst or brutality, or both, of a vile beast who calls himself a man. And theso victims are enerallv of the respectable middle class. To-day we publish the facta cf the murder of two women in Chicago by their nusoanas. nil that of two in Elmira, New York a wife and mother-in-law by the husband and son-in-law. In one case infidelity was charged, but in the other two no reason is ua.tm.ut far tbs annallincr crime.

Thk North Am irican, FmLADKLPHiA, March 25, 1878. f My Dear Mrs. Jenks I have been iu Washington for some days; hence have not answered your last amusing letter. Evidently your visit to Washington caused you to lose your temper. I don't know when I laughed so hearty as I did after reading your letter. Bless your innocent soul, you shouldn t eet mad; it don't do a particle of trood, and spoils the complexion ot women. They do say that Sherman fooled you badly, that you gave hiai that letter on promises to pay, and that, after irettinz it. he told you to whistle for your ducats. Now, I can imagine the "Mysterious Woman of Louisiana." chuck full of damning proofs of the conspiracy, etc., who traveled hundreds of miles for the purpose of straight ening things generally, etc , whistling for her ducats! Gewillikins! I don't wonder you got mad. Sherman is a sly old coon, who knows the soft side of the gentler sex and visions of sinecures, etc., in prospective. I am not surprised at the old sinner's success. And so you are coming up fortified. You have no idea how my hopes revived when I learned of your decision. Come by all means, and send a barrel of dynamite by express, and fortify yourself with a return ticket. You ought to hear M.S. tell how you tried to bull doze him out of a pass. It's good as a circus. I inclose you an article from a Chicago paper, which you can hand down to your posterity as an heirloom, or use all the same. Very truly, yours, jamks e. andkrson. On the same sheet with the toregoing let ter is written the following: Senator I send you Mr. A.'s letter to me and a copy of my reply thereto, which I mailed yesterday. Please return these to me and oblige, , a. d jenks, Lock-box 3556, Mew Orleans. The following also is written on the same sheet: Senator Mathews May I trouble you to explain that clause in that fellow Ander son's letter in regard to my requesting a pass from yon? How did you chance to mention it? Was it necessary you should do sot Not that i care, but knowing that fellow as you and i do, I must say that I am astonished. I deemed whatever I said to you regarding my own private affairs would AT LEAST BE INVIOIATK, as 11 is noi. uiLcn I mention them to any one; but it don't mat ter. 1 wish you to write a definite answer tn mv first letter to you. mailed on the fif teenth, be it pro or con; I wish to know.

Tax North Americas, i Phuadklphia, March 8, 1878. f My Dear Mrs. Jenks Yours received. I inclose you extracts trom the Times. Have New Orleans papers noticed ' and it so, send mn what thev said. You made a devil of a fuss out of things generally in Washington. Last spring, when I left New Orleans, I told you I would help him. Had he and you con- tided and trusted to me, ne wouia wuum mo next two weeks hold a position in C. H. As it is, you have simply made it impossible for me to do anything for him. You had better write to Mr. S., and send such messages as you may desire. Do yon know 1 have changed my opinion of you? You are not even ordi narily shrewd, after all. I have good reason for saying this, and you will too. 1 am afraid, before many days. It is more than probable X may be ia New Orleans next month. In the meantime you can write, should you find it convenient. Respectfully, etc.. IAS. . Anuuiauri. March 14. Mb, Anderson Your favor of the eighth is at hand. Permit me to advise yon to keep cool. Pray have no fears for me. I know how disinterested they are; I am not afraid, being I armed and -well pie pared, tiewy I was not aware that I ever assumed to be a shining light to guide benighted beings like you, though I think I should do so, for really you have -not good sense; you talk far too T It A 1 J much, ia regard to tne CQBiomnouae, anu the mighty ones who make appointments therein, they may all go to his satanic majes- ty. N. B. I have an idea; I will exist with out their aid. Certainly Captain Jenks never requested a favor of those gents of the world I and denagods of fame. They did not do much for yon. though; the fourth of March came and went, yet it was not found practi cable to place yon in any manner poor child. Don t distress yourself about others wno care not a cent which way the wind blows. My compliments to your friend Mr. Sypher. Thanks; I have no message to send at pres ent. 1 11 be nftth ere long, but will have time to hear from you should you make it convenient to write. Adieu. Slim. A. D. JnJ9. Tm North AMXRiCAif, ( Philadelphia, April 10. 1 . Mt Dk-S. Mrs.' Jenks Your last letters have not been funny, as you say, still I laughed heartily over them, nevertheless. And so, you were not mad? How strange, considering you d d Hayes, Sherman & Co., and wished them a 1 to the devil. I natu rally concluded you were mad. And bo, yon would not take filthy greenbacks from my friends? Well, that is good. Why. I dis tinctly understood you to name five hundred dollars as the sum you needed to pay off that mortgage, and after receiving it you would return to New Orleans and forward the docu ments that would carry consternation gen erally to the administration. What in Sa tan's name did you expect to gain by lying in the manner you did? for you did he most damnably. Why, at the very time you were in Washington to sell that document another party was there who had it. in his possession, and he declares that you never saw it; that he does not know you, and never heard of yon until you gained notoriety by attempting to bulldoze S. N. No wonder the old coon got mad. He knew well about it, and knew that you knew nothing. I was not aware of the actual state of things until the day I saw you last. and only the production of the paper,. itself could convince me " you had the narai hcod tooonie on such a fool's errand. There is a building just outside of Jackson to which I think vou had better be sent. And so you want to know how M. S. came to speak of the Dass. for many reasons. Well, if you will state your reasons, and they are good ones. I mav cive vou some information However, I think you had better retire to the shades of private life and meddle no mote with politics. I would recommend a shower bath daily. It sometimes cures in a mild form. Very truly yours, J. E. a. This letter is indorsed as "Anderson's curs injr letter, April 17th:' New Orleans, April 11, 1878. Mr. Anderson Permit me to congratu late you on the discovery of you El Dorado, as I see by your letter, which to long has ex isted as a bright spot in your imagination. Did you exclaim, "Is that the letter which 1 see before me?" or "Ah, there are thousands of them, if you only knew where to hnd them?" Like the Irishman "It's many fine feathers you might have 'got, if they had only been given you." But, alas! there's the rub. Nay, I am not mad, and really have the highest admiration for the adminis tration. I regfet to perceive, my good sir, like many of your brother lunatics' I have chanced to meet, you deem others mad, and only yourself sane a common case; but for bear, I pray; there is a place in Baton Rouge I deem a suitable residence for you. I imagine the regulation customs there' of would well become your : t bright blonde beauty, and in the solemn gloom of that grand old pile you might meditate in peace on the fleeting uncertainty of letters political; any thanks for your disinterested advice, though I am unable to avail myself of it, from the fact that I so much admire the scenes of politics. I feel that I must bask in their sunshine for a time at least. I think a slight shadow of reason might return to you if you would only take a trip through the hills of East Feliciana parish and let the bull dozers get hold of you once more. I imagine your ultimate cure, under their tender treat ment, would be certain, and thereby confer a great benefit on your friends. Your ideas seem very much mixed, judging from the wild manner in which you intermingle my private affairs with political matters. Pardon me, I am too good a Republican to think for a mo ment of my own interest when I think the varv life of the republic and the well-being ol my party are at stake. Behold in me a true patriot. N. B. I would suggest to yo that King, that man with the document, is in the right. Stick closer to him than a brother. Grai. him to your soul with hooks of steel. Let your understanding with him be specific enough. Should you get the document let no man grab it from you, but hold the fort with much dignitude. Hoping you may in time recover your mental disposition and re gain your usual intellectual intellectibility, I am, with much sympathy, .yours, A. D. JENKS. I am not at all interested in aught that Senator Mathews may or may not have said, so don't distress yourself. "swoop." After this word follows the representation of a bird in the act of swallowing a fly. In a letter to J. R. Sypher, dated JNewur leans, April 29, 1878, Mrs. Jenks says: 1 am not aware tnat i ever onerea io sen anything to you for five hundred dollars, as Mr. A. says. Knowing so well his Munchausen proclivity, I doubt you ever made such a statement. In fact, it was quite impossible that you could have done so. To this letter Sypher replied us follows : Philadelphia, May 3, 1878. My Dear Madam Your letter of the twenty-ninth instant is in receipt. Of course, on the strength of the very pleasant and pro tracted interview I had with you at Wash ington, it would have been impossible for me to have named the price at which it could have been obtained. No such thing was talked of, and 1 have never expressed nor even formed an opinion as to whether yoa could, if you were ever so willing, produce the letter on any conditions, or for any con sideration. As to that Weber and Anderson letter, I said to you that it possessed no special value, and beyond the care to know whether it was in existence, or whether it had been lost, I cared nothing about it. J. B. S Tt yfl Ti R. AT XEW ORX.EAIHM. New Orleans, July I. Ihe Potter sub committee met at half-past ten o'clock this morning, Messrs. Blackburn, Reed and Sten- ger being present. esvernor Packard was recalled to produce a number of papers to which he referred in his testimony on Sat urday, including the returns of the election promulgated, joint resolution of his legisla ture calling for troops, etc. Witness said ho did not have a copy of the governor's letter transmitting the joint resolution to the Presi dent; the promulgated returns of the Demo cratic committee did not give the names of the three men from the seventh ward who were put upon the rolls of the Nicholls house, but showed that three Republicans were elect ed; with this change it was essential to make a quorum in the Nicholls house; when Kellogg was elected there were seven senators present and sixty-six members of the house. In reDlv to the auestion bv Mr. Stenger as to when he first heard of the defect in the certificate of electors, he replied: When An derson returned from Washington; was not present during the preparation of the new certificates; was at the Houston house at tbut time, and saw very little of those matters; gave J. P. Harris authority as my attorney to sign the protests for me off of the polls and parishes; think Governor Kellogg signed some protests as elector; cited section third of the election law of 1872, authorizing candi dates to make such protests; described the difference between the protests made bv the election officers and the kind of protest he made, which merely requested the returning board to defer action until he could be heard; he did not consider snch a paper protests; bad a conversation with Marshal Pitkin in regard to the matters to be considered by the re-turning-board; in regard to Anderson's pro test, Pitkin told him that Anderson wished to reclaim the protest, but he (Pitkin) re fused to return it to Anderson; at that time my attorney, Harris, attended to such mat ters for me; ' Kellogg was a can didate for senator several months be fore the election; I suggested him for th lone term; I never made him any promises of support; he never asked me to make such promise; Mrs. Jenks called at his house one morning, and told him she was going to Washington; don't recollect any special con versation with her; when in Washington in February Mrs. Jenks made some reference to the Sherman letter; my impression is she talked mysteriously about it; the impression she made on my mind was that sba- knew nothing about the letter; she would not say who had it, and this made me think she knew nothing about it; the first I. ever heard of the letter was from a letter Mrs. Jenks wrote Governor Kellogg; Mrs. Jenks intimated to me that Jshe wanted me appointed collector, but 1 especially requested ner not to speaa, uj any of the officials on the subject; I did not wish any lady advocates; didn't think such influence would do me any good; she assumed in her conversation that I would give her husband a place in the customhouse if I was made collector. Alluding to the time when the visiting statesmen were here, wit ness stated that he bad no conversation with Sherman in reference to Weber and Ander son, although I talked a great deal concern ing the intimidation in their parishes; I was somewhat uneasy for fear that Anderson and Weber would not stand np to their protests; if the returns from East and West Feliciana had alone been thrown out, I would not have had a majority, but I had a majority, as the votes were actually thrown out; I am not able to atata rhafc T knew before the returnioz-board had begun its session; that the counting of the votes in the State and in the five parishes would result in the defeat of Hayes's electors and myself; I got estimates from Mr. Blanchard and others during the coming in of the returns in regard to certain parishes, but only as a matter of interest; I don't think they knew what result the board would reach, and I don't believe the board went into session to achieve any previously arranged result; I discovered that there were more votes in the ballot boxes for my opponent thau for myself; don't know whether this was before the board met or not; Mr. Blanchard arranged the table of votes in mv office and ken' me advised ; the knowledge upon which I based my protest or request to the board was obtained through mv attnrnev. At half-past twelve o'clock the committee took a recess, and reassemoiea at inree o'clock in the afternoon. Mr. Charles Hill - took the stand, and was examined by Mr. Rfncrpr. Witness testified that he took the second set of returns to Washington at the instance of Kellogg; that the returns were not signed by all the electors; when he went totheState for them Mr. Brewster came in and signed; while he was there Governor Kellogg took the papeia into his office and signed himself as an elector: received lnstruc tiona from Governor Kellogg and two sealed envelooes. one with the elect oral certificates: the other was a note to Mr. Ferrv: I had letters of introduction to Messrs. Hale and Frye; I delivered the let ters, and had conversations with them, but nothing was said about second or corrected r-ertifieates: I suDDOsed they knew moie about it than I did; Mr. Sherman was pres ent when I delivered the returns to Mr. Ferry, I had met Mr. Sherman half a dozen times here in the customhouse: Mr. Sherman told witness that the party would stand by us; we mnst no on and inaugurate Packard; don't know whether Levisse or Jaffrain were in New Orleans the day I left for Washington or not; I paid my own expenses to Wash ington, and have never been repaid. Win. H. Seymear Sworn. In answer to questions by Mr. Blackburn, witness stated that he was commissioner of deeds; knew Thomas H. Jenks; he held office in Feliciana; when giving testimony in Washington before the Potter . committee, witness spoke of affixing a jurat to two cer tificates; thought he would recognize the document if he were to see it. Mr. Blackburn drew from his pocket a paper, and, banding it to vritnsss, said: "See if you recognize that." ' . Witness, examining the jurat, said: I recognize there my seal and signature; I saw Mr. Jenks sign the jurat; the affidavit ap pears to be in the handwriting of J. E. An derson. , ,iT) The affidavit was read as follows: Be it known that on this, the eleventh day of May, 1877, personally appeared before me, Wm. H. Seymour, an acting justice of the peace in tha parish of Orleans, State of Louisiana, Thomas H. Jenks, who, being duly sworn, deposes and says that during the ninth of August, 1876, he was commissioned a deputy United States marshal for the parish of East Voiiniana hv J. G. R. Fitkin. L nited States marshal for the district of Louisiana, and that previous to his departure for the parish of East Feliciana, J. h". Anderson, super visor of registration, returned from said parish and gave his resignation to Wm. P. Kellogg, the governor of this State; and he further states that he has knowledge of the fact that said Wm. P. Kellogg refused to accept such resignation, believing that said Anderson would return to said parish, al though he ostensibly desired to do so; and he further states that it is known to him personally that said Kel logg and other Republican leaders did not desire the return of said Anderson to his parish or the appointment ot any other per son in his stead, the object being to hold no election in said parish; and that said Kellogg and others induced one L. B. Jenks to watch said Anderson, and prevent his return, after ha Vind ni-nmined several citizens of said parish to do so; and affiant further avers that both himself and said Anderson were in said parish on the day ol the election, namely, Novem ber 7, 1876, and the said election was con ducted under their supervision, and was the most peaceable and fair one ever witnessed by him, the affiant, and he further states that the said Anderson made no protest atrainst the returns from said parish, owing to the above-mentioned facts, and that after the return of himself and the said Anderson to the city of New Orleans it was shown then that rh election of Haves and Wheeler depended upon the electoral vote of Louis iana; that in consideration of this fact, and in order to secure the election ot said Hayes, said Anderson signed, in the presence of the affiant, a protest partly in blank, said blank being afterward filled out by parties unknown ; that both he and said Anderson would not have signed and protested for said parish had it not have been necessary to throw out said parishes in order to secure the election of said. Hayes and Wheeler. Signed, Thos. H. Jenks." It was Thos. H. Jenks. Signed and sworn to before me this, the eleventh day of May, 1877. WM.

SAM BAJiUAXL, Honored by a Reception Glten by the Central Democratic Association of Philadelphia, Delivers an Address, REPORT OF THE CONDITION OF THE In which he Reviews the Acts Passed by the Honse of Representatives, and Shows that it is Worthy or Public Confidence. Philadelphia. July 1. This evening a reception was tendered Hon. S. J. Randall, by the central Democratic association of this city. Letters were read from a number of senators and members ot congress, express ing regrets at their inability to be present. Representatives of the best classes of the De mocracy of this city and vicinity were in at tendance. The guest of the eveninar was es corted into the reception room by Ex-Mayor Richard Yaux and S. Davis Page, Esq., the orchestra, meanwhile, playing Hail to ths Chief. After a few congratulatory remarks by Ex-Mayor Vaux, Mr. Randall delivered an address, in which he took occasion to eulo- snze the recent session of congress on ac count of the character of its lee-ialation. none of which, he said, with a single exception, could be fairly condemned. He reviewed the leading acts passed by the house durini? the last session, and congratu lated the country especially upon the passage of the army bill, which he said will prevent a President from hereafter using the army as a posse over a free people of a tree btate. ibe act which secured a settlement between the United States and the Pacific railroad compa nies was also spoken of as a good piece of legislation; also the acts which provides that all southern claims shall be settled by a judicial court. The repeal of the bankrupt act, the remonetization of silver, the financial legislation and other measures. His remarks were listened to with particular in terest. He said the bill was submitted to the presidents of the American iron and steel associations of the country, and he had made suggestions which were adopted. The speaker claimed that the intn rou were practical ly prohibitory. That which Pennsylvania wants now is a market for her productions, the supply being greater than the demand. He did not want anybody to suppose that he had the least idea favorable to free trade. He would candidly say that he. always set down a man who talked to him of free trade as beinir either an ignorant man or a drivel er. Continuing, the speaker defended the Presidential investigation, remarking that, while congress he'd the title of Hayes to be as valid, coming from the electoral commission, as though received directly from the DeoDle. vet congress, sitting as a grand inquest, had an inalienable right to investigate the circumstance surrounding the election of Mr. Haves. The speaker dis enssed the postal bill, and condemned those features of it proposing to re-establish the franking Drivilege. and to grant exorbitant rates to railroad companies for carrying mail matter. Concerning the proposed Brazilian steamship subsidy, he said it would be better to let commerce between nations come by natural causes, and not by subsidies. Condition of tne Public Treasary.
