As an indication of how tbe "Old Southern Whigs'' intend to coroe up to the help of tbe administration against tbe mighty Democratic party, it may be remarked, that old Alec Stephens one of tbe oldest and much tbe meanest, of the Old Southern Whigs says he will be carried into the House on a shutter if necessary to rote for a Democratic Speaker. JIarritburg TelegrajA. Now that the President's policy has been fully inaogurated in South Carolian and Louisiana, and tbe work so far accomplished that it cannot be nndone, there is a general disposition exhibited by the Repub lican press to silently abide the re sult and await the bearing it will have opon the material condition, and political future of that eectiou. The adage that "there is no use crying over spilled milk" is just now very apropos. Tijere is much gratulation among Democratic journals and politicians over the extirpation of carpet-baggers in the South, and yet Willard one of the Judges of the Supreme Court, who served Wade Hampton best, and is therefore to be rewarded by a re-election, is a native of New York, and Spofford, tbe newly elected Senator from Louisiana, hails origin ally from Connecticut It is only the Republican carpet-bagger that is odious in the eyes of the Democracy. Is tbe Louisiana Legislature, in joint session to elect a United States Senator, ex-Governor Wermoch for dally announced the dissolution of the Republican party in that State. As reported in tbe regular dispatch be "said that the Republican party was now disbanded and there was aly one party." Judge Spofford, tbe Democratic caucus nominee, re ceived the entire rote of tbe 153 members of both nouses present ex cept one rote for Wilt, Democrat and twelve blanks. Tbe Republican claimant is Kellogg, wbo is not like ly to abandon the contest It has become necessary to post pone tbe sessions of tbe U. S. Courts all over tbe country for the want of money to pay the expenses, and now it is ennouced that tbe Post-office appropriation is exhausted. Tbis is the fruit borne by the so-called eco nomical measures of tbe last Demo cratic Congress. For tbe purpose of bowling "retrenchment and reform" during the last campaign, they so cut down tbe usual appropriations, that many branches of tbe Govern ment are crippled for want of funds, to carry them on, and now an extra session of Congress has to be called for tbe purpose of passing deficiency bills, to supply tbe necessary means to pay current expe nses. The ra of perfect reconciliation ts not, as yet, struck North Carolina bard enough U gire any one a shock ; as witness this simple tale. Tbe Internal Revenue officials lately mado a successful raid on illicit distillers in the Tar-Heel State, and bagged a number of tbe gang. Their trial is ooa to come off before tbe United States court at Greensborougb, and the chances of tbe culprits getting off on tbe evidence is very slim. But elie Siate courts bare kindly come to tbe aid of tbe law-breakers, and tare issued some fifty warrants for tbe arrest of witnesses who had been onMBoned on behalf of the United States. A 'loyal proceeding truly )" A xew point of danger in view of tbe peculiar setUemeet of tbe Louis' iana and South Carolina cases is the not unlikely supremacy Democratic party in tbe Senate. The present complexion of that body Is, Republicans 33, Democrats 34, Inde pendents 2. 'The election and ad mission of two Democratic - Senators from Louisiana, and ooe from South Carolina, will gire the Democrats And Independents a majority. ' The ' Independents, however, may be counted oat to join ia mo ache me ftgaiast tbe country, so that, eieept ia cases of racancies In the Repub lican ranks by death or otherwise, tbe danger is not immediate. That the change wilt soon come, however, . nd the Senate pase from tbe power of tbe Republicans, seems hardly to admit of doubt. Alabama, Arkan sas, and Mississippi are each Demo cratic, and each bare one Republic aa Senatorwbose term expires it i little orer a year.

There can be no doubt that the conflict will be a . tremendous ooe, end that it will exert a power-; ful influence upon the. whole of Europe. It will affect tbe markets of the world and particularly that for provisions in this country, as it. is highly probable that all tbe other European nations will be drawn into it, and millions of men be taken away from productive industry. Russia is tbe giant among nations, and therein nothing before Turkey but hopeless defeat if she is compelled to fight her battles unassisted, but tbe jealousies and interests of tbe other powers will surely include them in tbe etrifo, : and a general European war of vast magnitude is anticipated. ' The Indianapolis Journal, com menting on what "purports to be an interview with Secretary Thompson,'1 wherein he is supposed to advocate the resurrection of tbe Whig party, declares that Mr. Thompson has drawn too many Republican plat forms for it to hare any faith that bis ideas are fairly represented by tbe alfodged interview. The Jonrnol adds: : . The lU'iuiblicaiuiof tbecmiutry are not asleep. Many of them are getting very tired ot the "new party twaadic, ana ii it was believed that President Haves en tertained tbe remotest idea of the forma tion ot a new party on any platform or prclenbe whatever lie would soon find himselt without a following among He publicans. The party would drop him as quick and decided by as they did Andrew Johnson. There is, howevrr, no room tor such an apprehension This is a day of trouble, aod we shall have to abiJo our share ot it. , , . . r , - L That there is "no rom for tech apprehension" Is pretty near the truth.

The New Tort Times does not appear to be highly gratified with the orcrtb'jw of the Packard Gov ernment in Louisiana, resulting from the efforts of tbe Commission ap pointed by tbe President. Speaking of the report of tbe Commission it says: ; 3 . n' ri '' ' The report o-f tbe Louisiana Com mission is simply aa acknowledge ment that the result of tbeir labors has been a surrender, not .a compro mise. All tbe legal arguments are on tbe side of the Packard Govern ment. The kernel of the whole controversy is to be fonnd in tbe rela tive positions of the Reluming Hoard and the State Legialature, The Commissioners cite the law wbicb requires tbe returns fjr Governor and Lieutenant Governor to be sealed up and transmitted by the proper Re turning Officer to tbe Secretary of State, wbo shall deliver tbem to the Speaker of tbe House of Represen tatives, by whom they shall be sub mitted U the General Assembly for tbe purpose of beiag counted and the result declared. Tbere etn be no question that the Returning Board were tbe only legal returning officers of tbe State, that they transmitted the rotes for Governor and lieuteoant Governor as required by law, and that these rotes were canvassed by a legally constituted General Assem bir Dossessinir a quorum . for tbe 1 T transaction of business, with tbe re sult of 'declaring Packard the duly elected Governor of the i?tate.

Tbe resic nation was placed at once in the. hands of tbe Democialic Lieutenant-Goversor, who accepted it without fir laying tt before the Senate.

Each was required to apolo gize before taking the oath tor having con tumaciously relused to recognize the Wal lace (Hampton) House. A lew more will he admiusd to-morrow.- It was dennilelr i determined in the Democratic caucus that 29 Ilepublican members are to be ended i cd.

Turkey '8 military force is far infe rior to Russia's in numbers, let alone discipline. , Her military system comprises three classes, tbe active army, tbe reserve, and the "sedenta ry army." Tbe soldier serves six years in tbe active army, then be comes a member of the "reserve" for six years more, aod for eight years alter that is member of the "sed entary armr," liable to be called out only in case of extreme need. Leav ing tb- "sedeutary army" out of cal cula'iviu, as needed for borne control, ibe total military force, ' active and renerve, using tbe official estimates of I87G, aud mcluding auxiliaries and irregulars, is 453,300. The Russian army has also three divisions, the Regular army, tbe ar my of tbe first reserve, and tbe army of the second reserve. Tbe two first are in perfect state of discipline, and the latter can quickly be made so. Leaving tbe last class out, as in tbe case of Turkey, we find in tbe regular army S0S,G70, and in tbe first reserve 127,928 a total of 93G.593. And even this leaves nearly 300,000 good troops of tbe "second reserve" for borne dutr. Russia's preponderance, it will be seen, is immense. In naval matters Turkey is as far superior to Russia as she is inferior in military force, lij this, we mern the force which can be brought to bear in the present conflict. Russia has, in all, 103 men-of-war, of which 29 are iron-clads. But of these two tbirds are on tbe Baltic. It is a long trip thence to tbe Black Sea, even it they could get past tbe Dardanells in to that body of water. All Turkey's naval force, on the other hand, is available for immedi ate action. She has 90 men of war, of which twenty are powerful iron clad?, tbe best of tbeir kind in the waior. ' She has spent $15,000,000 on her navy in the past five yeara. But tbe most Binguiar feature of ber naval strength is that the force ber ressels carry. Russia's whole nary. 108 men-of-war, carries but 1,477 of ficers and 7,21t seamen less than 9,000 in all. Turkey, witb but 90 re?e!s, has 30,000 seamen and 4,' 009 marines, fcne can do pretty much as she pleases on the ' Black Sea, and Russia will hardly attempt to compete witn ner mere.

Probably no more shameful slan ders were ever circulated about aor body of men tbeo those wbicb hare pursued the Southern Republicans throughout tbe whole period of re construction.

J To tkt trptbUctnt IommUsc- On tbis day tbe fifteenth anniver sary of tbe surrender of.New Or leans to tbe forces of . the United States, it becomes my duty to an nounce to you, that tbe aid and coun tenance of the Nat ion ! Government has been withdrawn from tbe Repnb licans of Louisiana, and that a Gov ernment revolutionary in form is practically on tbe point of usurping tbe control of affairs in tbi) State. I recall tbe circumstances of tbe last electoral campaigu only to thank you for tbe fidelity of principle you then displayed Tbe republican par ty, as you know, entered upon the canvass more united and stronger than ever , before. It bad enlisted under its banners an influential class of native oarD citizens, of old Wbig antecedents, wbo.to tbeir honor be it said, still remain faithful to the prin ciples tbey espoused and tbe Gov ernment tbey supported. It wss further strengthened by the absence from the Stale, or the position, of the element whose previous adherence to rty bead brought it into disre pute. These faupes combined to bring about tbe remarkable success achieved by the Republican party in all the doubtful parishes with one ex ception, even where the white popu lation preponderated, and wbicb gars us e majority iu the Legisla ture. Except, where organized vio lence prevailed, our State ticket car ried every Republican parish, and aLo m number of parishes which, in tbe last Legislature, were represent ed by tbe Democratic members. I briefly summarize the historical events that have 8i'a?e occurred. The Qeceral Assembly met on the 1st of July, last, organized with a full legal quorum ia both Houses, passed laws wbicb were approved by tbe Executive of tbe State, and, on tbe 2d of January last, canvassed and declared tbe vote for Governor. At tbis time tbe Xatlon waa agita ted by doubt aa to tbe result of tbe Presidential election, with &u expec tation that Samuel J. Tildes might possibly become President : of tbe fruited gt&tcs. . With bo hope of success otber wjse, my . opponent in the State campaign established a mock Legislature, nod went through tbe form of an inauguration, in or der that there might be a semblsua of s Government wbicb Mr. Tilden, if inaugurated, could possibly gal raoif j witb vitality. In the few days that' folio wjd, Geg.

Notwith standing this, however, tbe Commis sion found ft legal Legislature ati'l in session at the State-house, asd my title uo assailed, and unassailable, ex cept y rareer " - Tbe result of tbeir labors, during tbe two weeks tbey remained bere i known of all men. Tby induced a number: of t members of the legal House of Representatives to ' take seats io tbe Nicholls House, giving it a Returning Board 'thus ' quo- rum.--. J t'' Prior to1 tbe meeting ef the Legis lature, the Democrats claimed to bave elected only Bixty members of the House, one less then a quorum. Oue at least of ' the members so claimed by tbem was absent on the 1st of January , last, Xo Republi can or Independent member would consent to act - with Nicholls House, and consequently in order to ' obtain even tbe appearance of an organiza tion, tbey bare " been compelled to call to tbeir aid three men defeated at tbe polls, whose election bad not been previously claimed. The in quiry, therefore, seems pertinent in tbis connection. ; If ' a Returning Board quorum was so effective for Xicholls claim, why was it that such a quorum was ignored while it remained faithful td the legal Gov ernment of the State t That Gov ernment bad a Returning Board quorum from tbe day on which tbe General Assembly convened and tbe Legislature was dnly organized, aod remained in legal existence till dis integrated by tbe direct action of ibe Commission. Tbis result having been achieved, it is a matter of rec ord that congratulatory messages were exchanged between the Presi dent and bis Commission. Oh tbe following day, tbe Presi dent, by a formal order, m ido pub lic through the press, directed that tbe United States troops occupying a building in tbe vicinity of the State bouse should be removed to tbeir barracks. Those troops had been placed there by President Grant without a formal call of tbe Govern or to protect tbe Returning . Board while counting tbe vote for. Presi dent. I firmly believe that had tbe legal Government been recognized it would bare pitslained itself . without tbe intervention of troops, but the order for tbe withdrawal issued un der tbe circumstances, and in tbe manner that it was Usued, clearly indicated that even tbe moral sp- Sort wbicb tbe legal Government of lOuisiana should bave received from the National Administration would be denied. , Had the General . As sembly continued in session in. the State-house, 1 should bave deemed it my duty to bave asserted my Gov ernment to the last, notwithstanding tbe withdrawal of the troops. But witb the Legislature disintegrated, and no prospect of present success, 1 cannot task your tried fidelity by abking you longer to continue to aid me in tbe struggle I have thus far maintained. . . , ..: . ' ; I, therefore, announce to you that I am compelled to abstain: for tbe present from all active assertions of my Government. I waive none of my legal rights, but yield only to su perior force. I era not w holy dis couraged by tbe taet that one by ooe tbe Republican, State governments of tbe South bave been forced to suc cumb to force, or fraud, or policy. Louisiana, tbe first State rehabilita ted after the war, is the last State whose government thus falls, and I believe it will be one among the first to raise itself again to the plane of equal and honest representation. I davise that you maintain yenr party organization, and continue to b.tila for the rights of citizenship and free government. We Strive for these, and not for man or men. It grieves me . beyond expression that tbe heroic efforts you bave made and tbe cruel sufferings you have undergone to maintain Republi can principles in Louisiana have had tbis bitter ending.

Our desire to ameliorate their lot baa been shared by tbe whole Rossisn nation, now and shows it self ready to bear fresh sacrifices tj alleviate tbe positions of tbe Chris tians in tbe Balkan peninsula. "Tbe blood and property of our faiibfol subjects bave always been dear to us, and our whole reign at tests our constant solicitude to pre serve to Kussia tbe benefit of peace. 1 his solicitude never Tailed to actu ate Ud during tbe deplorable events which occurred in Herzegovinia, Bos nia and Balgaria. : One object before all was to effect tbe amelioration of the condition of tbe Christians in the East by means of pacific negotiations, and io concert with tbe great Euro pean Powers our allies aod friends. "For two years we bave made in cessant efforts td induce the Porte to effect such reforms as would protect Christians in Bosnia, Ucizeguvinia and Bulgaria, from th' arbitrary measures of tbe local authorities Tbe accomplishment of these reforms waa absolutely st -pulated by interior engagements contracted by the Porte toward tbe whole of Europe. Our efforts, supported by diplomatic rep resentations, made in common with other governments, have not, howev er, attained ibeir object. The Porte bas remained unshaken in us formal refusal of aov effective guarantee for the security of its Christian subjects, and bas rejected tbe conclusions of the Constantinople Conference. "Wishing to essay every possible means of conciliation in order to per suade the Porte, we proposed to tbe Cabinets to draw op a special proto col, comprising the most essential conditions of the Constantinople Cenference, and to invite the Turk ish government to adbere to this in ternational act, wbicb states the ex treme limit3 of our peaceful demands, but our expectation was not fulfilled. Tbe Porte did not confer to this unanimous wish cf Christian Europe, and did not adbere to tbe conclusions of tbe protocol "Having exhausted pacific efforts, we bave, by tbe haughty obstioacv of the Porte, to proceed to more de cisive acts, feeling that our equity and our dignity enjoin it. By her refusal, Tnrkey places us under the necessity ot having recourse toarms. Profoundly convinced of the justice ot our cause, and bumbly committing ourselves to tbe grace and belp of Uod, we annouce to our faithful sub jects that the moment bas arrived when we pronounce tbe words to which all Russia responded with complete, unauimity wben we ex pressed our intention to act indepeu deutly wben we deemed it necessary, and when Russia's honor should de mand it - ; "In now invoking tbe blessing of Uod upon our valiant armies, we give tbem tbe order to cross tbe Turkish frontier.

OCR WASHINGTON LETTER. Washington, D. C, April 19, 1877. BETIBEMESTOF ISCAfABLES. In our references to propesed re forms in tbe civil service, we have contended that, for the purpose of. securing capacity, the examination should extend to iocombeats as well as to applicants. It is not to be de nied that there are many holding clerkships in tbe Dopartmeuts wbo are wholly unqualified tor tbe dis cbarge of tbe duties of tbeir respect ive positions. If tbe civil service is to be improved, it is as important to weed out incapable as lo app.iiut on ly competent applicants.
