Fur '.lie m i olei lime since the formation
of the Fcdi ral I'nion ,ur ( low -rniiu-nt is
co. iip, -lied to ileal with a revolution. Dur
i ii tie: last ;i mouths active preparations
huc been i'oiur on in Louisiana for the de
posing ot the Jcllo;;; aiiministration by
force. Tim moveiii. nt. was aimed not only
ul the S.ate allleials, b:;V was intended to
include all the county and municipal olli
cers who a llu red to the Keilo faction.
A military organization was formed under i
the name of the "Wliite Leatiue," ostensi
bly fo.- the purpose of coiiilue'iiua political
c.iiu iain, but only lliose who were will
fully blind v. ere deceived by this pretense.
Some f.mr weeks ao the involution was
inaugurated in the northwestern s a t ion of
the Suite. The colored people are laii:i ly in
the majority in the parishes bordering on
the Ked I.her, and the local oilieers were
1'epuhlicaiis. Annul bauds of "White
Leauuers" suddenly appeared in tie- parish
towns, and den. ruled the resignation of all
the eftieers, threatening death in c:ise of re
fusal. In this way cieht or ten parishes
were captured. No doubt many persons
were murderid while these violent procccd
int:? were in proi.-s, but the revolution
ists havim; entire control of Ihe agencies by
which news is transmitted to 'he Xorth re
ported, tie ir ietorii s as bloodless.
Fed llieei Pari.-li was the last one at
tacked. !iecai:e a lar'e majority of the peo
ple are. Ie'puhlicans. and it was supposed
tir.it some of the parish ojlieers were reso
lute men. A face of live hund'ed men
was raised in ihe. ii' ihbariuL' parishes, and
the ttiwn of Coushatta was surrounded.
The officers made a feeble attempt at le
sistanee and th. ti surrruden d. Tl-.ey jiro
iniseil to leave the State if their lives wore
spai.-d. While heiiiLT taken to Shrev. port
they were murdered. ':'( account says
that the horrible massacre was perpetrated
by a bam! ofTexans, while the most pro
bable story i that a body of horsemen,
who rode out from Shr. veport on the day
before the murder and returned on the fol
lowing day, are re-ponsible for ihe bloody
deed.. This ended the revolution in Xorth
ern Loiiisana.
The I,ca:;nes in Xew Orleans were anxi
ous to W-.-jin the war two weeks ago, but
the leaders w ere not ready. MT.nery was
timed and hesitating. The New Orleans
l',rliiii,i pulihshed several i'.amhig edito
rials urging immediate action, and intimat
ing lhat the LeatMi'Ts of the city were not
so courageous as their country brethren.
In the meantime the Leagues kept on re
cruiting, arming and drilling, and if the
contest had not been precipitated by an in
cident which was trivial in itself, probably
nothing would have been done until M'-Em-rv's
return from his stumping tour in
the upper I'arishes. Three or four boxes
were lauded on the wharf from one of the
Xew York steamers, which were marked
"Ladies and MissV shoes."
.V detective who happened to V about
the wharf '.'nought the boxes mlber heavy
to contain nothing but shoes, and ordered
ihemlobe taken to police headquarters.
Two citiz' lis ajijH-ared and claimed the
boxes, but inasmuch as they were filled
with muskets the police authorities refused
to give thrin up. Then began a litigation
which ended in sending one of ICcllogg's
judges and two policeman to jail for con
tempt. Kellogg pardoned them, and arms
were not given up. The Hntfid'n again
Bounded the war not", and a tall was issued
f r the mass meeting, at which the demand
was made for Kellogg's abdication. It was
given out that the meeting was to vindicate
the t ight of citizens of the Tinted States to
bear arm. Ten thousand le aguers en
rolled in companies and n-giments, as mili
tia, held themsejvees in readiness for the
signal to inarch. A man named IVnn, who
claimed to have licen circled Lieutenant
lovernor on th" M'Enery ticket in l-To,
took direction of the movement. Speeches
were made at the massmeeting denounc
ing Kellogg as a tyrant and u-urpcr, and
resolutions were passed demanding his im
mediate resignation. A committee was
appointed' to wail on the .ovcrnor and ap
prise him of the action of the meeting.
Through a member of his stall' he 'gave a
peremptory refusal. The ten thousand
leajm rs immediately marched into Canal
stru t, where they encountered a body of
the Metropolitan police. A light c nsin d,
in which about thirty persons (mostly po
licemen! were killed and one hundred
wounded. The Metropolitans lied in con
fusion, and the leaguers took po-sr-sion of
all the stalioii houses. Finding resistance
tisele-s, the whole police force surrendered,
and were paroled. This ended Monday's
work.
in Tue-day morning Governor Kellogg,
apprehending violence, lied from the hotel
temporarily occupied by the Executive
Departments, and took refuge in the Cus
tom House. The Leaguers too!; possesion
of the di s.oied building, an I 1'eiin pro
claimed himself Acting Covejuor. No
sooner h id tin- been done than the League
authorities at Shp veport telegraphed that
the officers voted for on the M'Encry ticket
in ls'T:; would be ina'tgura'.ei in all ihe
northern parishes immediately. Jt i- pro
bablv that they were Installed yesterday.
This appears to be the whole story of ihe
revolution, as f ir as it has been reported
by telegraph.
When ties" thing- became known hi
Wa-hiiiglou President (.rant, after due
cclisultatio'i with such of bis Cabinet olli
cers as weir within reach, issued a pro
clamation w ami tig t he armed organizations
lhat bad deposed Kellogg to de-i-t from
their unlawful proceedings, and lodi-prr-e
within live days. From the tenor of this
proclamation, il seems to apply to Petin
and all others who have violently forced
themselves into oillee. A direci i--uc has
been made between 'lie insurgents ae.d the
I'nited States lioverntnent, and unless
everything is restored to the old s'"'"s
wiltiin five days there will certainly be
trouble Tlx' gushing disjiat' hes sent to
Ihe President by the ne.v officials, assuring
him of the completeness of the revolution,
the part p't ie designs of those who partici
pated, and their heroic purpose to protect
lb" colored people, will hardly save them
from '"the wrath to come." The Peisident
is represented as being exceedingly indig
nant, and has freely expressed his deter
mination to drive the usurpers Irom the
ollices into which tbev have forced them
selves bv viol.-nce.

The public debt statement for August
shows a decrease of only t l.l'J'vf.O. This

In: the ri best men in the world. For cer

always ends badly, could not but pay large

The piice is at the rate of 17".(HM for a lot

stances. The Germans have a society for
doing p way with all this. They hav; taken
up tut, itiea of cremation, and propose to
bring it into vogue. They are building a
hali i;ix 3-i feet, fitted with an altar at w hic'o ,
religious ct lemonies may be had. Hack of j

this can be done for S;-:, which is bringing j
burial expenses within reach of the poor

act upon it, for this people have not the
rcverei.ee for ancient forms that the
Americans possess, and the form of dis
posing of remains is in entire consonance
with their ideas of the fitness of things.
And who knows but after it has become, a
common practice among the Germans it
may be adopted by the rest of mankind 1

Tilton's last statement, which appeared
Friday bus stirred up this mess once more.
Public opinion in the city has once more
veered to Tilton, and it will probably stay
then: till Peeeher makes a statement, when
it may shift to him. Tilton gives the world
nothing new in the matter, but he explains
the why of very much of it. For instance,
in answer to the question why, after per
mitting his wife's infidelity to remain a se
cret with him four years, he gave it to the
world, he says that had Elizabeth remain
ed with him, and the church had let her
alone he never should have divulged it.
But she k-ft him for the purpose of testify
ing against him, and in sheer self-defense
ho was compelled to give the terrible truth
to the world. Moulton's statement is a
crusher, and has produced a profound im
pression. He fastens his former statements
and makes his case very cleverly. Xow
what will Heccher do? Ate we to have
more statements 'i He has said that he
will not open his mouth or put pen to pa
per on this subject again, tut "rill trust to
the courts to clear his skirts. Thank
heaven, for no matter who is in fault the
people art: tired of the whole matter. Let
us hope it will be. settled one way or an
other, and lhat quickly.
Speaking of this affair, it is gratifying to
notice the frankness ami fairness with
which the l)ubj (!iiihh- has treated this
matt'-r. Without disguising its own con
clusions, from the reports of both side-,
prescribed in its co.ums with an enterprise
which made some of the slow-coach papers,
in self-defense, profess old ueen Anne's
j horror of gossip, it has commented on the
j sad affair in a tone befitting gentlemen, an
j example which some of its unsuccessful
contemporaries might have followed with
j much credit and more grace.
The way in which zealots on both sides
have carried on th.i skirmih renders it a
' sure Miing that nobody comes out of the
scrimmage with a clean coal. That the
: ; riij liir hns. shown more wit and Itss teni
; p.er in its share of the sport may be charged
' to the fact that its editorial columns are in
; tlie hands of gentlemen, made such by
i virtue "f breeding and sympathies, as well
; as position ; who know how to hold liberal
views and express them fully, while keep
; ing them out of the mire. And I may say
that it is the controlling force of this quiet
genllcmanhood which makes the G'"'o'c
J such a favorite fimily paper both in and
; out of the city. The rare ability of D. G.
Croly, its managing editor, and the enter
i prise and tact of the P.rother.s- Goodse!!,
have made, the GYye a great success.

j Docs not pick up as I (and everybody else)
hoped. The city is full of merchants ; the
i hotels are not only crowded but over
' crowded, hut they do not buy. The South
is paying smalt scou.. Ver s.u, i.ut the
j West, so far, is only sorting up. The mer
i chants all say they intend 10 buy largely,
but they are waiting to see what the con
dition of things is to lie. In short, with
wheat at the price it is, they are afraid to
venture. Possibly they nre right ; but the
importers and jobbers, w ho have stocks on
hand, don't see it. Au.l the summer has
slipped away, we are fairly into the fall,
and the goods are all in the "original pack-
i ages.'1' I am speaking now of the whole-
sale trade. The ictail business in this city
looks somewhat hopeful this month, and
will keep its cheerful face, for the people
have money, if the trade only have sense
to adopt the rule of the leading house in
America, namely, to do away with fancy
prices for any class of goods, however new
j or fashionable, and bring the most tempt
j ing articles at once within the reach of
ordinary buyers. The novel and nice im-
pollutions of dress goods, camel hair cloths,
j quilted silks, and fancy fabrics of the latest
Parisian fancy are accordingly put on the
! counters at juices which compare with
j those of the old-fashioned standards, neri
I no, and Hritish cloths, in the eye of careful
J purchasers. This idea of selling stock but
once, as merchants express it, will result
in clean counters and equally clean balances
t next spring. Even India shawls are no
exception to this rule, for the largest im
porters in this line have determined to put
them on the same footing with other goods,
and estimate their value according P their
worth, without paying l'im) or .'KM) per cent,
tribute to fashionable caprice. One hears
of sucli comfortable orders in the trade as
SlUMi'i worth of American shaw ls for one
customer, and S.".,imh. worth of piintssold
at retail at one counter ir. a single day.
Stewart's house sold oil" all its first stock of
fall goods before the first of September, ami
were obliged to order afresh by ocean e!e
graph to supply at that date.
Nevertheless, the city will see a great
ileal of distress this winter. There has
been no building and labor of any kind this
summer, that the working-men have not
been able to keep anything ahead, and
when the frost puts its embargo on out
door woik there is going to be an amount
of destitution and actual .-ulfering that the
city never saw before. Heaven help the
poor this winter. And let me put in a
warning here to young men keep out of
New York this fall and winter. There are
thousands upon thousands of unemployed
men in eveiy possible department of labor.
Theie art! one hundred applicants for every
vacancy. Except upon a sure thing stay
where you are, it you can earn bread ami
