LOUISIANA.
Washinqtdn, D. 0., Fob. 23.—Gov. Warmoth,
of Louisiana, is out to*day in a column-and,
o-balf review of tbo majority report of the Son*
ate Committee on Privileges and Elections, rela
tive to affairs in that State. Ho impeaches tbo
evidence of tbo Kellogg witnesses who appeared
before tbo Committee, and shows that at homo
many of them have a disreputable character.
Most of tlio affidavits aro based upon more hear
say statements, or tho belief of tbo party
making them, which in nine coses out of ton
amounts to nothing. With regard to tho as*
sortion of the Committee's report that
in .Louisiana tho blocks outnumbered
tbo whiles, and that In tho State election tho
negro, voters wore unanimous in support of tho
Republican ticket, Warmoth says there aro two
errors : First, there is a majority of white peo
ple in tho State of Louisiana. The
census of 1870 Was taken in tho
summer, when thousmds of whlto
people wore absent at tho North, as is annually
tho case* Tho rates of deaths and births, and
other statistical tests of population, show
the population of Now Orleans to bo 2C0.000.
instead of 100,000. There is not 1 per cent
of tho forolgn-bom population included iu tho
census who aro not citizens and entitled to tho
right to vote. Yet, notwithstanding tho foci
this census was taken under the circumstances
referred to, tho white male population of tho
State above tho age of 21 is returned os number
ing 163 more than tho colored, but further,
it was in proof before tho Committee that sev
eral thousand colored men voted tho Fusion
ticket. Armsteod, tho colored Fusion candi
date for Secretary of State, expressed his be
lief that over 2,000 colored men voted this
ticket in his section of tho State; that ho was
present and assisted in forming throe colored
Greeley and Brown Clubs iu Caddo and two in
Bussicr Parishes, and ho saw 800 colored men
vote tho Fusion ticket in tho Parish of Caddo.
Gen. Sheridan, who made a thorough canvass of
tho State, gave it as his opinion that from 8,000
to 10,000 colored men voted tho Fusion ticket,
and while Messrs, Pinchbock and Packard!
Lynch and Barce do not thiuk that any
largo number of colored men did voto
that ticket. It must ho borne In mind
that neither of them was a hundred miles from
Now Orleans during tho whole canvass. War
moth contends that there is no reliance to bo
Blaced8 laced oil tho evidence, which trios-to provo that
lerowero enough fraudo committed by what
are styled tho Fusioniats to invalidate tho elec
tion. Taking out of tho evidence all that is in
tended to establish frauds on tho part of tho
Fusioniats, Warmoth still thinks that MoEnory
was elected by over 3,500 majority: or, giv
ing Kellogg the largest Republican voto
over cast in tho Stato, and yot Mc-
Enory would have a majority of 871.
Ho concludes by urging on Congress to recog
nize tho McEnery Government, a stop which ho
says would bring peace to tho Stato of Louis
iana.
CALDWELL.
Tbo resolution reported from the Committee
on Privileges and Elections, declaring tho float
of Senator Caldwell vacant, will come up in tho
Senate to-morrow. Tho dobotoon this roaolu
«on promises to bo both oxciting and important.
Tho Democrats generally will bring into tho dis
cussion objections to tho action propoaed, baaed
mainly on the theory adyauood by Caleb Cush
ing, that tho’ Senate can go no further
than to Inquire whether thoro woa a
regular and legally-organized Legislature : that
tho election took place at the time provided by
law, and that tho votes wore given m tho legal
and prescribed form. Some Senators hold that
it is not competent for tho Senato to inquire into
tho motives and incentives by which legislators
woro influenced In casting their votes. • Cald
well himself will raiao tho point that ho received
a majority of 25 votes on joint ballot, and that
as only two instances havo boon alleged whoro
money woa used to procure votes, thatshould not
be allowed to vitiate all tho rest; that tho more
fact that ho had ouch a largo majority is ‘con
clusive evidence that no money was used in thoao
two instances.
' TUB PACIFIC MAIL SUBSIDY,
Tho time now remaining before the closo of
tho present Congress will not admit of a full in
vestigation into tho monnorxjf tho passage of
tho additional subsidy bill, passed last month in
aid of tho Pacific Mail Steamship Company.
The Ways and Moans Committee, however,
which has the matter in charge, will at
onco enter upon, tho inquiry, and will
push it os far as possible. To this
end, tho Commlttoo havo decided to summon
Wm. 8. King, Postmaster of tho. House of Bop
resontatives, who is said to havo had a vorv
large sum placed in his hands for tho purpose o*f
buying influence in favor of tho increased sub
sidy. Mr, King has boon in Washington vorv
little this season, and it is intimated that
as soon as tho resolution of inquiry was adopted
ho took his departure from tho Capital, but has
boon discovered in Now York, whoro tho sum
mons waa served. The officers of tho Pacific
Mail Company havo also been summoned, and
have boon directed to fetch their slato.
POMEROY.
Senator Guerin, of Kansas, arrived yesterday
with the original package of $7,000 bribe money
which was surrendered to the oaro of tho Sec
roturv of State of Kansas by Senator York dar
ing tho joint convention to elect a successor to
Senator Pomeroy, lie comes In obedience to a
■ summons from Senator Frelingbuyson's Com
mittee. 001. Johnston, State Senator, yesterday
received a dispatch that tho Kansas Legislature
had adjourned till tho 14th of March.
S y t th «°i * Constitution of tho State
the Legislature cannot ‘receive pay for more’
than ilfty days each session, and their adjourn
ment at this time, to moot again on tho 4th of
March, is construed to meau that thov exnoot
Senator Caldwoll will bo un.sStod. ASa tbSt 5
now United States Senator will have to bo elect
ed at that lime.
UTATt,
Tjio President and Attorney-General are very
anxious that Congress shall take some action in
regard to Utah matters during the pros
out session, and are bonding ev
ery effort ‘ln that direction. Thoy
say that with Mormon juries there is no hope of
punishing the offenses of Mormons against tho
United States laws. Tho Attorney General, it is
understood, is not in favor of such rigorous
measures as tho President, and ho stated,
to-day, that all ho desired was to prevent tho
Judge of any inferior court from Issuing a
habeas corpus, and tho summoning of a jury
composed exclusively of Mormons. It was in
ferred from his conversation that ho is in favor
of a mixed jury, or at least any jury in which
tho Mormons have not absolute control.
ARTICLES OP IMPEACHMENT.
It is tho intention of tho House Judiciary
Committee. on Tuesday next, or tho first day ou
which tho lloor can ho obtained for (hat purpose,
to present articles of impeachment against
Mark if. Dolahay, United Btafos Judge for tho
District of Kansas. Proceedings against tills
ofllcer were begun hi tho House of llonresonta
tivoa Fob. 0, Idy2, by tho introduction by Mr.
Hoar, of MaeflcohuHotts, of a petition
from Eldridgo, Dunham «k Co., and of
other merchants of Wot? York, for tho
Impfcaohrtiont of Dolnhay for corruption, irial
foaenucoi and iucompotonoy in office. Tlio pe
titioners prosontod thoir allegations, giving
facts, dates, etc., and Ihoir documents wore re
ferred to the Judiciary Committee. A prelim
inary examination scorned to warraut a further
investigation, and, on March 10,1872, Mr. Under
G resented a resolution extending tho power of
io Committee. A great number of witnesses
wore examined during the present session.
Thfi tobllmobjr was pflvatblv printed for
tho use of the Committee, malting over 800
pages., Nearly 6Vmy Vruiionn Otviioil ioS!’uCd tq
tho Bhamolosß intoxication of Dolshay, both on
the bench and in his private capacity of citizen.
Witnesses testified that they had taken him
from the gutter, and had frequently soon him
so much Intoxicated on a public street as
to bo scarcely ablo .to Walk, and that
ho had frequently been taken homo in that
condltiom As In Williams) tliO Altarnby
Oobtlrttl of Kansas, whoso father at the time of
bis death hold tbo office now filled by Jndgo Dol
nhay, testified that ho had known tho Judgo
since 1803, tho time of hia appointment s that no
was unquestionably given to tho uso of intox
icating liquors to a groat extent, both during
tho sittings of tbo Court and during
tho recess j that ho (witness) had
delayed tbo bringing of clients in Court
for several days la order to have thorn sentenced
bv a sober Court. Tho witness, being preened to
state tbo circumstances And occurrences regard
ing Judge Dolabay’s intoxication bn tho bench,
mado tho following statement i Aporson wos:
convicted for forging Government Mauds such
as Arb Used lii tho QUartormastcrV Donarthiont
for branding bbrsca and mules. His rosl
donco was in Balt Lake Valley, on'
tho stag© routo between that and Leavenworth, I
Ho hod been convicted, and was standing up
for sentence. Tho speech of tho Judgo was
substantially to this effect: X havo known you,
Mr. (calling him by name), for a number of
years, and I fool very sorry for you, very sorry,
I could send you to any penitentiary in tho
United States, I could send you to the District
of Columbia, but I shall scud you to tho Peni
tentiary in Illinois for this reason j Tho
Warden in tho Penitentiary there is an
old friend of mine, and I will write to him, and
ho will treat you like a gontlomani” Tho next
instance that occurs to mo in point of timo wrts
Within some two yearn Tho gontlonion of tho
Committee will probably recollect that in tho
revision bf tho Revenue laws, in ono clause the
penalty fpr ono offense made tho minimum im
prisonment for two years, and tho thousand
dollars fine; In passing sentence on
some ono convicted of tho offense, it was said
that tho party had no property, so that no flno
could bo collected, ana the Judgo, who was in
toxicated at tho time, fined him SI,OOO, ond re
fused to fix any other penalty, and after having
done so. turned round to tho crowd and
said: “You havo boon a long time ira*
peaching tbo old man Dolahay, and now
would bo a good time to do It?” That
was tho language substantially. In a groat num
ber of instances his charges to grand jurors and
petit jurors wore very facetious. Ho would say
to them: “If any of you have any potatoes to
dig, bring them along and the Court will dig.”
Tho Mayor of Leavenworth testified that ho had
picked the Judgo auf of tho gutters of tho
streets during tbo past year, and tho officers had
prevented him from holding Court on
account of his Intoxication at tho timo. Tho
cases of Corruption and malfeasance in office
aro not so clearly proven, but it is thought they
are sufficient t9 cause his conviction, particu
larly in bankrupt cases. An interesting por
tion of tbo testimony is that of John J. Ingalls,
tho Senator-elect from Kansas to fill Pomeroy’s
place. Ho was a lawyer practicing in
Dolahay s Court. Ho had some clients of largo
wealth, and in a particular cobo -which involved
$40,000, and perhaps {double that amount. Mr.
Ingalls was very anxious to have tho speedy ac
tion of iho Judgo in order to protect his clients.
Tho Judge was drinking heavily at tho time.
Ibis is tho substance of Ingalls’ testimony; Ho
was in tho habit of coming into Court in tho
morning and adjourning without permitting any
business to bo dono. It was necessary
for Ingalls’ purpose that ho should in
u P on Court sign certain processes
or legal documents, and Ingalls was at a loss
to know how ho was to obtain tho action. Ho
asked tho olflcors of tho Court and many other
persona what woh to bo dono, and tbov all ad
vised him to employ Thomas A. Osborne, son
in-law of Judge Dolahay. and now Governor of
Kansas. Oaboruo and Ingalls mado an
arrangement by which the former was to receive
$5,000 if ho was successful in getting tho
action necessary. Tho next day after tho agree
ment tho Judgo wont to tho Court-house and
opened court after dark, and aimed tho papers
required by Ingalls for this service. A sixty
dava draft was given to Osboruo, but when it
fell duo tbo clients of Ingalls refused to pay it.
and it was protested against Ingalls, and suit
was begun. He refused to pay tho amount
Tho following question and answer will give
some idea of Mr. Ingalls’ idea regarding tho
matter: 0
Q; - You havo stated that a suit was instituted
against you on that draft. Did you notify any
one, and if so whom. What dofonso would you
sot up to that suit if it woro pressed ?
A.—-I addressed two notes concerning thomat
tor. ono to Thomas A. Osborne and oao to Judge
Dolahay, notifying him, in substance, that suits
bad boon brought against mo on that draft; that it
was unjust, as I had no personal liability in tho
matter, and that I hoped tho suits would bo
withdrawn. In conversation with Judge Horton,
who was ono of tho attorneys forOsbomo in tho
matter, I stated to him that I was not personally
liable, and did not propose to pay it if I could
avoid it by any local dofonso, and that I should
defend against it by every means in my power.
It does not appear that tho draft was over paid.
Another member of tbo bar, W. G. Glide, tos
tifled as follows, referring to a case that had
been argued s Tho next morning ho camo in
Court aud opened Court, and decided tbo case.
Ho did not give any particular reasons for it,
only stating that ho bad examined tho author
ities. and tho Western authorities, and ho de
cided to bo governed by thorn, and while
tlioNowlork authorities woro entertained by
boiuo. Ho considered that tho Supremo Court
of that State did not amount to much, as it was
composed of carpenters, shoemakers, and tailors,
and such follows did not amount to much. Ho
gave no reasons except that for his decision.
Ho thou asked him for timo to prepare a bill of
exceptions, and ho said ho would give us
time. It was arranged between Judge
Dolahay and tho attorneys that instead
of copying all tho papers that had
boon offered in evidence that they should bo filed
as a bill of exceptions, by giving a proper head
ing and conclusion, and they woro to bo filed as
tho bill of exceptions. On Saturday noon, ho
came in, and wo told him that tho bill of oxcop
tions was ready to sign. Ho looked at it, and
shoved it back. Bays ho: “Do you suppose I
am going to sign anything of that kind?”
I explained to him that ft was all documentary
ovidouco, end presented in tho bill of exceptions
just as it had boon offered in evidence; that wo
had numbered each particular document, and tho
other party had admitted that it was correct.
Ho shoved it away and said: “lam not going
to sign any such thillg. ,, I then turned to tho
statute, and reached that which pro
ves ,n^ m £ Judge should oxamino
iVi , °* exceptions when presented to
him, if ho found it correct, sign it; if not cor
roct { ho should correct it, oxamino all such cor--
rootions, and thou sign it, and he shoved it
away, and says ho: “If Law rend that statue
to mo again I will send Law to Jail."
Tho action of tho Judiciary Commlttoo has
boon deferred in tho hope that tho Judgo
would resign, but thoro is no prospect
of it unless hois allowed to control tho appoint
ment of liis successor. His friends and tho
friends of his son-in-law, Tom Osborne, havo
appealed to him to save himself from tho im
pending disgrace by resigning, but ho has thus
.far disregarded their advice.

lars of two most atrocious hitlrdora; tho victim
In each case being an old and woll-knowil 6ltf
zon. Their assassins wore undoubtedly high
waymen, who oomlttod tho crime for tho purpose
of robbery.
Tho victim ot Burnside, Conn., ia Ira Bliss,
72 years old, blatlon-maotor ou tho Hartford,
Providcnoo & FlsliklU Railroad, At he did nob
return homo at tho usual hour on Friday night,
his son went in soatou of him. Ho found a
bloody trait, and, soon after, discovered, his
father lying pi'ostralo in tho snow, covered
with blood; dnd partially froaorh Ho
had lain there four hours. His bond wfisbridiy
gashed and his skull and jaw fractured. TbO
: search for tho assassins led to Hartford,
four railos distant, and two young scoun
drels woro arrested, who confessed their crime.
'Their names nro John Dyro and Oscor
Graves, agod 18 and 17 years, respectively.
When Graves first saw an officer coming toward
him, ho took to his hods and throw away a watch
and a sum of money ho had taken from Mr.
Bliss. John Dyro says in his confession
that ho and Graves have lived at Burn

sticks of wood. They intercepted Mr.
Bliss, and ho -said “ Good evening,”
to which they responded by boating him furious
ly over tho head with their clubs; They robbed
tho unconscious old man of his tin box and
pocket-book, but found, on dividing their booty,
that they had loss than sl2 oach. They
took an early train to Hartford, where both
woro arrested In loss than twenty-four hours.
Both mado full confession as soon as they
reached jail;
Tho murdered rtan at Bethlehem, Po., Is Jion l

Mr. Snyder was respected by all. By

a fortune estimated at 8100,000. On Friday
morning last ho camo from Bothlobom to New
York to consult a physician regarding a growing
deafness. Ho loft Now York Friday evening at
6:80 o’clock. A suspiclous-looklng-black
boardod ruffian sat in a scat behind him.
■When ho got off tho train at Bethlehem,
at 9:15 p. m., tho ruffian was observed to follow
him. That was tho last soon of Mr. Snyder un

Bolow this point, and ou tho crook bank, is
measured in tho snow a man’s form, the spot
whero tho • body struck when rolled over tho

Thb opinion of tho Court is that whilo tho

says the Samanjv Bay Company is partly a politi

prominent members of the Company have boon
holding mysterious consultations at the White
House recently, and find Gen, Grant as strongly
in favor of annexation as over. The American
colony, which the Company propose to establish
at Samana Bay, will bo used as a
cover under which future political
movements ore to bo carried on.
It will also afford the Administration a tangi
ble excuse for keeping a naval force in the
waters of San Domingo, nominally to protect
increasing American interests, but really to act
as a moans of overairing tho people and keeping
Baez in power. President Grant will have ex
tended what is virtually a protectorate over San
Domingo (Baez included), and this protectorate
ho' will continue until ho gets a Congress that
will favor annexation.

Railroad Noivn.
Cincinnati, 0., Feb. 23.— Recent intimations
that tho Columbus, Cleveland, Cincinnati & In

hands of tho Erie interest, has excited interest
in railroad circles here, though comparatively
little appears to bo known definitely of the mat
ter. This now project consummated, would lot
the Erio interest into tho city over tho Dayton
Short Lino, or Plum Street Depot, instead of
over tho Cincinnati, Hamilton & Dayton Rail
road, os at present. Though tho termination of
tho arrangement with tho latter road might not
follow at once, it would probably bo only
temporarily postponed. Tho effect In those
events on tho Cincinnati, Hamilton & Dayton
would, it is believed by persons In the
interest of that road, not necessarily bo unfa
vorable, as it baa been claimed for some time, by
persons prominent in its Interest, that its pres
ent arrangement with tho Erie has not been
Srofttablo. The question is asked as to what tho
bw York Central ia to do, which now enters by
tho short-lino road from Dayton to Cincinnati,
which has boon constructed in its Interest, but
tho Opinion prevails that a bettor understanding
exists between tho parties than appears on the
surface.

f/fcrnW Cable Dispatch.}
Londok, Fob. 23.—1n tho considerations that
inclucoa Amadous to abdicate, tho possible dec
laration of a Spanish Republic was never for a
moment contemplated. It was a complete sur
prise—a veritable coup d’etat. Amadous would
not have abdicated bad ho doomed ..this a conse
quence of bis act in any degree probable, inas
much as <ho two Latin Nations—Franco and
Spain—having each a Rcpuelican Government,
would havo enormous iulluouco on tho third
Latin Nation, thus directly endangering hia
father's throne. Amadous abdicated in expecta
tion that he would bo recalled by tho army,
whoso side bo has taken against tho Ministry.
For this he remained in Portugal. Tho artillery
officers are all monarchists, all members of old
families. Qo believed that, as ho cast away tho
throne, rather than act witu tho Ministry, who
determined to humiliate tho army, they
would pronounce in his favor, and ho
would return at their head, his hands being
then free from constitutional trammels.
But ho was completely checkmated
by the turn of events. Apparently it was some
suspicion of this that induced many members of
tho Cortes, not Ropubiicans, to vote with tho
Republican party in order to overreach tho Roy
al maneuvros.
The Spanish Republic is tho source of unoas-.
inoss at Berlin. Tho Emperor now regrets his
false stop in Franco, and is sorry ho did not re
establish Napoleon or some other Monarch, and
accept tho payment of a slight indemnity, rather
than lot things take their course. Ho regards
tho Spanish Republic as a consequence of tho
French Republic, and is uncertain where this
desire for Republics will stop.

The excitement is increasing, particularly among

Curious Case of Second. Sight,
It is a historical fact that tbo Rev. Joseph
Buckminster, who died in Vermont in 1812, just
before hia death announced that Ida diatin-
Suishod eon, thp Roy. J. S. Buckminster, of
ostou, was dead. It afterward turned out tuat
the son had breathed hia last about tho moment
that hia father made tho announcement. Tho
Eaton (0.) Telegraph , of tho present week, tolls
tho following incident, which may bo taken as a
parallel to that of tho Buckminsters:
On Wednesday morning last, at 1 o'clock. Gon.
John Quinn broathod hia lust. But a few minutes
after that Joseph Boom, who also died on tho
14th, aroused fx*om hia sloop and said to his
son, John, who was at hia side, “John, Gon.
Quinn is (load." To thia John said. “I reckon
you aro mistaken, father; you havo noon dream
ing ; I guess Gon. Quinn is not dead. Ho
is not oven sick, but goes down town regularly
every day for hia mail." “Yes,” said Pother
Boom, “I know ho la dead,"ami lie had scarcely
IhiibhcdapoaklngtillßonJaminllomau walked in,
about 6 o'clock, as was his habit, and said to
them, “ Gon. Quinn is dead I" What ia strange
about it ia that Pother Boom did not know of
Gon. Quinn’s illness, and, in all probability, had
not hoard bla name mentioned. Was it the freed
spirit of Gon. Quinn, on its llrst mission out of
the body, to cam’tho nowa to an old and dear
friend also near the portala of death ? Or, was
It n wider vision, a supernatural sight given to
Pother Boom, so that. as ho stood on tho coniines
of the unseen world, ho took In tho scope of his
sight things unseen to tho natural oyo ? Bid he
eoo with the freed spirit's oyo ? However this
may ho answered, it is full or interest to ovory
Inquiring mind.
