I < Ikntu.mks 1 have the honor tiS"
transmit herewith a ropy of the Joint
Resolution* adopted by the tieneral As"
Hetnbly of the State of Louisiana. In ho
1 doing I desire to nay that they express
o not merely alMtrnct ideas, but the conviction
of our people, which will be practically
executed by them through their
representatives, their court* ami their
;? executive government. Ah Chief Magis['J
trate of the State, it will be not only my
? pleasure, but my bounden duty in to give
every assistance in my power leading to
that end. 1 am satisfied. that any course
I'j oi political action, traced on a narrower
line than the good of the whole people,
J regurdlcss of color or condition, must
inevitably lead to disaster or ruin. My
views on this subject were fully slated to
" the convention by which 1 was nominated
is and to the people by whom 1 was elected,
,? and everyday experience fortifier in 'my
belief that any policy founded on these
principles, must necessarily result in the
attainments c?f the end* for which all
, Governments are established. 1 have
|1 earnestly nought to obliterate the color
line in politics, and consolidate the peor
pie on a basis ot equal rights, and
" it in a source of gratification
s, to be able to s.iv that th'n great object is
? about to be realized. I fuel that 1 do but
spetfk the sentiments of the people when

fvrcement of the laws, ?o that nil persons
and property wiil lie fully and equally
protected, andtdionld occasion require it
I will proceed in person where any diuIri
orders may menace the public peace or

!j Washington, April 11).?Telegrams
0> were received by the Pesident from the
Ix>uisiana Commission yesterday after*
noon, last night ami to-day. It is not
considered expedient at present to fur*
nlsh their contents for publication, hut j
'1 assurance in given in official quarters
4. that their tenor warrants the assertion
a that the prospect of a settlement of the
ntlairs continues to improve, and the in*
'** (iterations are thai beyond a douht the
labors of the Commission will have a satisfactory
end.
Nkw Obi.kanh, April ID.?-The Com-)
missioners talked freely to the Agent of
i- the Associated Press this afternoon, he*I
e- lieving that the end of their labors were
i)f near. They have been necessarily more
[i- or less reticent hitherto, tor their etl'orts I
in have been largely through individual!
ir conversation,and to publish their appeals'
b* and suggestions in advance of any evifd
denco of their acceptability would have
it defeated their object. They strenuously,
ie endeavored to secure one legislature by
:v general consent. A reunion would lw
nominal and nearly valueless unless
it* accompanied by a good degree of
I- jeal conciliation and harmonious
>y purpose. They bail constantly urged
-.1 on each side the duty of making the nrop-j
it ositions tending',(o tiie removal of diflicul'e
ties through the work of the citizens of
ig Louisiana. They believe that the Xair
tional government has desired to accept
>r whit Louisiana should have prevented
h rather than dictate what Louisiana
it should do, and that no settlement oflered
id on the State by military j?ower could
it. establish justice and peace. They have
i?f tried not so much for detailed plans of!
le any kind as to soothe passionate feelings
and create a desire for |h?ac:e and union;
they have not believed that mere treaties!
v baaed on an allotment of office could reach
the detfired end, but they found do ^reat a|
diversity of opinion among the Kcpnbr
licans uud Democrats that party lines
a were often invisible. Neither party is ? i
?e unit. They believe that no attainable
>? result, whether enforced from outsiders
rn or brought about by the forces within,
jo could be satisfactory to thp whole of either
? J party. They all 'speak with respect of
m the personal bearing of both Packard
re and Nicholls. The letter of Nichoolfl api\
penrs to please them, and they sjKjak of(
in liiin as an honorable soldier, whose sine.
cerity and high courage cannot be doubtie
ed. Unquestionably he will do his ut*
e, most to carry out the policv to which he'
e. so frankly commits himself, and he is
a, sustained by the best moral and intellect*
?g ual elements of his parly.
ie A large number of Republicans have
i- from the beginning accepted his Govern >|
of orship as inevitable, and said it would
IM not only bring present peace, but make a
| great step forward in the protection of
the people, ami to a reorganization of!
both purlieu, under which all sides would j
an a matter, both of policy and duty, protect
the personal anil political rights of
all the voters. The Commissioners are
in good spirits over the present aspect of i
atl'airs.
WOIIIM OF KNCOt'HAOEMENT TO PACKARD.
A comtn|Uion of colored ladie*, mostly
wives of prominent colored citizens, presented
< lov.l'ackiird nn address commending
his efforts in the maintenance of the
cause of the Republican government ii;
Louisiana, assuring sympathy, and,
through him, tender the memlters of the
Legislature who stood by him every aid
and encouragement iu their power to beHtow;
tender to the needy board and lodging,
and to the nick every attention possible.
Among the signers are Mrs. liov.

Several additiunal members from the
St. Louis Hotel were seated in the Nicholls
legislature to-day, giving them r.~>

ANOTHER CAUCUS.
The Packard Legislature met in caucus
to night and adopted the following,
on motion of Mr. Dinkgrave,of Madison:
The members of the House of Represent
atives and Semite of tin* State of Louisiana,
meeting in caucus in the Stute
House, in the city of New Orleans, tiiin
l'.'th ?fay of April, 1S77, adopt the following
statement as expressing their
views of the present conditioe of a flairs
in this State:
1. They have an unalterable faith in
the integrity an.I justice of the claims of
S, II. 1'ackard ami the government of
which he is the head t<i l?e the legal government
of the Si.ti.' nf l, :tn-iaiia, legally
rt'inrneii legally ir.nt;iiled ami legally
embodying the will m| a majority ot the
people.
~. That the disintegration of the legal
general assembly meeting in the State
llotise, an<l acknowledging the authority
of Gov. Packard, recently witnessed,
has been brought by the direct agencies
of gentlemen, citizens of other Stales,
sent here by the President with instruclions,
which have been only partially
made known, and the nature ot which
can be only inferred by the actions of
said Commission, their expressed opinions,and
the agencies they have employed;
chief among these we will enumerate
the following, on the evening of Tuesday
the 17th day of April, on which day the
pretended house of Kepresentatives,supporting
the claim* of Nicholls to the
Governorship, was without a semblance
of a legal quorum, a* it ha-* continuously
been since organisation. Certain
members of the Commission appointed
by the ('resident,requested a consultation
with the members ot the General Assembly.
Some twelve members of the House
and two members of the Senate responded
to this invitation to them. The members
of the Commission, known as belonging
to the .Republican party, stated that the
terms oll'ered by the Nicholls Legislature,
which included the seating of three Democratic
members from the city of New
i Orleans notoriously defeated even accord
ration oi whom was requisite to give even
a :diow of legality to the organization oi
the Xicholls House, were the bent and
only terniB they could procure. They
distinctly recommended the Republicans
assembled by their invitation to accept
these terms, and Mr. McVeigh, one of the
member* t>f the Commiflaion, whilst re|
{raining from openly endorsing the pro|
position, emphasized it with thin remark :
''If there in any member oi the Legislature
who entertain.* the most lingering
hope that the troops are going to remain,
for (tod's Alike disalmsehim of that idea,
for they are going to be removed."
4. That as a direct result of this intimation
and implied threat of the President's
Commission, several members of
the legal Legislature have to-day ioined
the so-called Legislature of (ieneral
Nicholjs.
?i. We therefore, charge upon these j
gentlemen if, an they assert, they have
acted simply iu their individual capacity,
an unwarrantable interference with the
, domestic allairs of a State to which they
do not l>elong, and of a llagrant violation |
of the principle of local self-government!
of a State. It on the other hand their
action, in the manner set forth, has been
directed by the chief executive of the
nation we leave it to be characterized in
befitting terms by the American people.
They evidently feel that their mission
here lias ended and they have, in all
probability,so reported to the President.

of liirt experience at the lire. Tim

ho wan awakened by thenrream of woiuer
in the hall; got down to the parlor floor
with part of Ilia clothe* on liin arm by
groping through the balls ill tho densest
smoke he ever aaw. There he met twen|
ty or thirty person* in the greatest excitemeiit,
ami :i man, whom he after*
wards learned wiw (ieorgo Darling, wan
telling them that there waa 110 danger;
that there had been a lire in the basement,
but it w:ui all out; that if there wan much
'lire thero would he lew* pinoke. and th*t
they con Id return to their rooms.
The remainder of the morning Betwion
wan taken up in examining the person*
who identified the bodien 01 II..I. Clark
and wife, and also with a lengthy description
ot the tire annunciator in the bonne,
given by Charlen liciider, it* itA inventor.
^lr. Heeler explained the construction
of the machine: It was operated by electricity
and designed to give warning at
theollicc whenever a room or part of the
hoiiiie connected with it reached a temperature
higher than the one for which the
instrument wa? net. It wan very delicately
adjusted and reliable if properly
ne^Uctwl.
Charles %A. Spaulding, manager <>L tho
Olympic Theatre, *wa.i a boarder in the
house; heard the cry of tire; ran out of
the room anil rushed down ntairH to the
parlor tloor, where there were perhaps
100 people in various stages of excitement.
Heard (ieorge Darling try to
quiet the women by telling them that
there was no danger, that the lit e was out
and ho on.
Jos. Crawsham, who put the "as pipe in
the house when it was built, said the large
meter which supplied the main part of
the hotel, was situated vtry near the
freight elevator. If the connections with
this meter were melted oil' during the
lire, there was a volume of yai added to
the tl:uuei sufficient to supply from ~,(M>0
to II,oiID burneiu, The witne. < thought
that all lar^e gas meters should be placed
under the sidewalk.
Chart. E. Barney, of the firm of Senujys,
Vandevoorte iV Harney, had boarded at
the hotel live or six years, and wan
awakened by the cries ?>f tire: he threw
his over-coat over bis wife's head and
started for the lower tloor; at the foot
of tlie stairs, on the parlor lloor, he met
Darling and several others; Darling
said, Don't be excited: there is no danger;
the lire is out. \hout two minutes later
I met Capt. Warner, who said the lire was
[greater than was uppo . I, :tnd ad vised
him and others to leave the houv nt
once, which they did, pasdng out by the
Fifth street or ladies' entrance.
Charles II. Shepperd, caahier and one

| don't know the time; the boy paid there
j was a tire in the store room; told him to
call Kuaacll, the engineer, aud have the
water turned on; started for the office
lloor, and was nearly stilled by t!ie smoke
111 petting then-: on arriving at t!ie othce,
tried to open the nafe, but tliero was so
much Atnoke could not set; combination;
saved Home book* and helped two or
three persona out of the hou-v, gave410
order.-to any one while at tin* oHice to
have the guests aroused and notified oj
the lire; tried to ascend the main stairway
to the parlor lloor, but could not get
up on account of the smoke. The lire
| annunciator had been in use about three
weeks, but it was not regular in itaoperation
and gave false alarms. It gave no
warning that night until the lire was under
headway. 1 had spoken to Air. liessler,
the maker of it, a day or two before
about its bad working and apked him to
lix it. John David, saloon keeper, was
at the lire and assisted in rescuing several
ladies from the building; heard C?eo.
Darling tell the people on the parlor
lloor that there was no danger and-not to
Ik? alarmed.

three of the most trustful otiirers
of the department to make an examination
and to select those who were either
not needed or were lea^t efficient in tin*

the ii*t for weeks, and hsnded it over to
Governor McCormick when he becamn
Assistant Secretary, by whom it wa* rare- ]
fuully examined and held till delay was I
inexcusable. The removals having been \
made with the greatest care, the Secretary
has refused in every case to restore
any one on the list, although some of |
them had been appointed on his recom- ,
mendation ami many of them w ere casts
of extreme hardship. The force ban to

is not sufficient and the supply of notes ,

Comptroller of New York, who has Been
the confession of Tweed as prepared for
and presented to Attorney General Fairchild,
says the liubUcation the other day
was a correct abstract in ho far a? it goes,
with the exception of the reference to
Judge Folger. Mr. Kelly added that the
confession stated that 'fweed gave the
$200,000 to Winslow in 1871, to l?e used
for procuring tjie passage of a charter.
That Winslow afterward told him that
this money waa divided between the persons
named. Tweed also savs he paid
various amounts to Wood, i'roat, Morgan,
Mood, Itevis and the others mentioned.
These sums, I understand, were
exclusive of the $200,000 named above.
In the Assembly of 1871,lie says he paid
various amounts to William 1>. Murphy,
William C. Jones K. Nelson,
ami one Crack, as well as to other members
of the House, whose names are
jiven in the document. These are all
llie natues that are now made public.
The names of between 250 ami .100 period*
to whom he says he paid money for
corrupt purposes are given in thu confession.
They embrace the names of
prominent persons of both parties in this
:ity and in the titate, many of them not
heretofore suspected of any complicity
in the frauds. The confession will enable
the counsel who are defending the
luits against the city to successfully relist
the payment of several claims founded
:>n transactions of the broken Tammany
ring, and amounting to between $25,000,300
and $30,000,000,; one-half of the total
Amount received by the units against
Tweed. ll? proposes to return every
:hing ho holds, but it apparently amounts
:o comparatively little. 1 Ie says his property,
which consisted almost entirely of
real estate, has beeu almost entirely disposed
of by fees to lawyers, the expenses
>f his long imprisonment and escape, and
he depreciation in value of real estate.
He says he transferred a large part of his
property to his son to enable him to go
>n his bond, but he subsequently sold it
in his behalf to pay the expenses enumerated,
and much of it at one-third its

ind over it he has no control, lie cannot
say what the value of the property
vhich he proposed to turn over to the

wan not submitted to b. C. O'Couler
before l>oin?? sent to Albany. Mr.
3'Connes retired absolutely from the case

now rests on the Attorney General,
L'liere is another information that some

every facility for the Russian troops to .
paaa through her Territory, Van must
undoubtedly fall. There is nothing to *,
rirevent the"Russians capturing Eataum '
rom the landside. An attack on the Sea
front is unlikely, because Bataum is considered
inpregnable there and the Rus- c
Diana can't cope with the Turkish Black I
Sea fleet. The Russians haviiu? nosses. d
sion of Erzeroum and Van can easily
advance to Trebinzond. There is a good C
road between Erzeroum and Trebinzond,
thus the chances are decidedly in favor 1
of Rusaia, if she attacks Turkey in Asia I
Minor, as the Turks have not the forces t
to oppose them and are without cavalry, t;
It is to be feared that cruel massacres of n

l?e the moment for Austria to cross Bos- I

would not be an act directed against Russia,
and would be far from being intended \
to impede Russian operations in Bulga- \

the Austrian interests in case Russia c

circumstances in Servia should render it .?
necessary, Austria might occupy Bosnia !
