BNew Orleans, Sept. 13. -The political
campaign is beginning to develop quite
briskly. The national psrty, headed by Mr.
Frank Hatch, an old democrat, and collec
tor of the port before the war, has tele
graphed to Gen. Beauregard, now in New
York, bfferlng him the place at tbe bead of
the state ticket, in opposition to Major E.
A. Burke, the regular democratic nominee.
The negro vote solid is pledged to Gen:
Beauregard in this offer as there has been
a fusion between the nationals and repub
licans. The republican convention which
meets in this city on the ISth will not
make, it is understood, any nominations.
They will allow the nationals to nominate
the state and city tickets, as they did two
members of congress from city districts.
The number of registered voters Is now
about 12,000. Of these over 5.000 are ne
groes, and the nationals claim 1,500 also.
The fever Will keep, it is believed, a large
number of democratic refuges from regis
tering in time to vote. The registry closes
tbe 20th of November.
KOUNTTS RIVER CONTRACT.
[Helena, M. T„ Daily Herald, Sept 4.]
Commodore Kountz's contract on the Yel
lowstone is interesting. His failure to de
liver 1,500,000 pounds within the specified
time has raised an inquiry as to how much
the government or Kounts is going to lose.
His contract calls for 20 cents per 100 pounds
per 100 miles. Gen. Tompkins has let a
portion of the delayed freight to Charles
and Holder at $1 per 100 pounds per 100
mils*. The Kounti contract will compel
him to make good the difference to the gov
ernment As the water now so low that
Fort Keogh cannot be reached by steamboat
a large fraction of the distance from Bufora
must be traversed by ox teams. The coot
of transportation by land will be at least $2
per 100 pounds per 100 miles, and possiblv
$4 or $5. It can easily be figured out that
Mr. Kountz will be a large loser, and if his
bondsmen are not the best the government
may stand it for a trifle.
