S. farsha's Report on Ouachita. The Cincinnati Commercial, of the 31st, published the following report, telegraphed from Washington, of one E. Shearman, a deputy U.S. Marshal, made to Marshal Wharton at New Or leans, and to be submitted, along with other documents, by the President to the Senate upon the re-assembling o1 that body. It will be seen that Shear man speaks of men and transactions in this parish as if he had been here. Perhaps he has, but we are constrained to say we did not see the man, or learn that a man of such fertility of imaglna* tlon was within our borders. Elimi. nated of its falsehoods, his report could be reduced to twenty lines. He was,ac cording to his own ptatement, a skulker and a sneak, and of course could flnd out nothing. But, it is not our purpose to particularize his misstatements, or to refute the charges of this hired spy, but simply to re-produce his paper for the gratification of a number of people who are curious to see what the man Shearman's report really is-and heat it is, as made to Marshal Wharton: Sir-In obedience to your instruc tions, I left the city of New Orleans, La., on October 22, 1878, arriving al Delta, via Vicksburg, on the twenty. fifth instant; called on Mr. Dinkgrav in reference to the business in hand. He told me I could accomplish nothing as the whole northern portion of the State had been terrorized to such an extent for months before the election (by the bulldozing element of the White League party)and s proven by the recent murder of Daniel Hill and Herman Bell, two colored mechanics of Monroe, who were murdered in Oc tober because they were Republicans, as well as numberless others who have laid their lives down for their princi ples. Notwithstanding Mr. Dinkgrave's admonition, I arrived in the city of Monroe on the third of November, and went to the Ouachita Hotel, kept by Mr. Julius Ennemoser, telling him I had a letter for Judge Ludeling, which I wished to deliver. He told me if I was in any manner connected with politics he would prefer that I would not stay at his house, but that the son of the judge would be at the house some time during the day and he would inform him that I wished to speak with him. In the evening I met the judge's son, and with him called upon Judge Ludeling. After making a detour of considerable extent, to avoid observation, we at length rehched the home of the Chief Justice of Louisi ann, and there I found the Judge, guarded by a few friends, brought to gether by the common danger which menaced them, afraid to venture abroad for fear of being assassinated. Aftei having read my letter, Judge Ludeling informed me, as I was subject to his orders, he ordered me to leave Monroe, Ouachita parish, Instanter, as I could accomplish nothing in the presence of an organized bodyof the White League, that every stranger who arrived was watched, and that if my. presence there was suspected (as it doubtless was) it would only add to the embarrassment of their situation, which I soon found was true, for upon returning to the ho tel and retiring about 12 p. m., a friend who had been out visitingsomo friends called at my rooms and asked me where I had been. Not wishing to in form any one of the purpose of my visit, I replied that I had only strolled out for a short walk. He replied that there must be some mistake, as some gentlemen who called at the residence where he was visiting stated that a stranger answering to my description was seen going and returning from Judge Ludeling's residence, and told me to be on my guard while in Mon roe. I was followed, whenever I ven tured out, by two men ; one of them I found out to be named Buck Goodman, of Richland parish. The leading spirits In the organized opposition to constitutional law are Capts. Theobalds and McLeod, to gether with Phillips,Judge Slack,Jessie Warmack and McEnery, brother to Gov. McEnery. Those men are the moving spirits of the organized oppo sition to constitutional law. It is these men who caused the killing, as I have been informed, of Daniel Hill, who, being shot in October, called in a physi clah, who, upon extracting sixteen buck-shot from his body, told him, as others, that he would live, went to his house at night and killed him in bed, wounded as he was, and then took his partner in business, Herman Bell, and killed him. It was they who caused, as I am lnformed, the four men inear cerated in the jail to be taken therefrom and hanged. Iwasinformed by a per son (whose name I can give if necesa ry) who was acquainted with two of the victims, Beatty antd Brown, and saw them the morning of the hanging, after death, that oakum chloroformed was stuck into their months, and a wit ness. can be produced who will testify to a knowledge of some of the persons who committed this hellish deed. The person referred to has been informed that-he will be killed if he says any thing about It. Bob Logan told a cer tain person unless they left he would have them killed, giving as a reason that the person referred to-knew too much about the hanging aforesaid. Having heard that an old man, sixty years of age, who lived at or near Log town, a place some distance in the country, had been very severely beaten by bulldosers, I hired a horse and rode out in the country to find the old man. My search, however, was fruitless, as he had secreted himself in some out of the way place to avoid subsequent visits of the bulldozers. Just as I left to return I was met by a body of seven men, who, after passing me, turned around immediately and followed me to the city. Before leaving I received a note telling me to be on my guard, as the writer overheard a conversation in which threats against my life were made. Such are the completeness of the organization at Monroe, as I am informed, and have reason to believe, that any one suspected of being a Re publican cannot send a telegram or letter without the contents thereof be ing known by others than those for whom the message is Intended. Nota bly is this the case in the postoffice, where the clerk, one Morris Hayes, exercises a general inspection over the contents of suspected private commu nications. In conclusion, I beg leave to state that the condition of the coun try is such that I found it impossible to get any information of importance, as the law-abiding people are afraid to give any testimony as they would have to leave their homes as soon as found out, and those who commit the greatest crimes are never brought to trial, especially if the victims happen to be opposed to the bulldozers. 1 remain, very respectfully, E. S1IEARMAN. November 16, 1878. LOUISIANIA RADICALS FEEDING. A Gay Old Time-All Serene. We find in the Louisianian, edited by Pinchbeck, the following account of what transpired at a complimentary dinner given Senator Kellogg in New Orleans a few days ago. Our readers rarely ever meet up with intelligence such as this, and will, probably, be in terested in reading Pinch's recital, and Instructed in knowing that all the leading Radicals are apparently recon eiled and Jolly. The Louisianlan thus tells the narrative: Senator Kellogg was the recipient of a complimentary dinner last night ten dered by the Union Club at Antoine's Restaurant. The affair was in every way a success. It has seldom been our pleasure to see a more tastily and elaborately deco rated table than presented itself to view when the guests were ushered into the commodious dining-room used for the occasion. The dinner, accorUing to the invita tions, was fixed for six o'clock, a little after which hour Senator Kellogg ar rived, and the guests, about fifty in number, were-seated with ex-Governor Hahn at the head of the table, flanked on his left by Senator Kellogg, Gov. Antoine, General Souer, Judge Marks, Collector Smith and Dr. Roudanez; on the right by ex-Gov's. Warmoth and Foote, Col. Lewis, Mr. Joubert, Gene eral Anderson and Col. Weeks. Col. Jack Wharton was placed in charge of the foot of the table with Judge Dumont and the editor of the Louisianian, facing each other and sup porting his wings in company with Senators Stamps, Harper and Blunt, Hons. Wm. G. Brown, Desmarlas, In galls, Morey and others. Besides these gentlemen, we recognized among the guest Messrs. 3Bonzano, Shaw, Mer chant, Casanave, Herwig, Kenner, Woodward, Judges 1'ardee, Fontelien and Cullom. The dinner was excellent and well served, and judging by the way course after course. disappeared in the capa cious stomachs of the guests was highly relished. At the proper time Gov. Hahn, in his characteristic manner, alter a highly eulogistic speech, pro posed the health of ", our distinguished guest," to which-after it had been drunk standing--Senator Kellogg re sponded. le acknowledged in suitable terms the honor conferred, plead for harmony and unity among RepublI cans, and pledged himself to an honest and faithful discharge of the trusts committed to his hands. The Senator was vociferously applauded, and was followed by Gov. WVarmoth, who made a very happy and neat speech, in which he predicted that with Grant as the national standard bearer in 1880 the Republican party of Louisiana un der competent and energetic leaders, and a ticket representing character and intelligence, would again, as of old, march to victory. The utterance was received with enthusiastic applause. Geov. Foote was the next speaker; he believed in the supremacy of law and declared the constitution, as amended, the most perfect piece of work ever per formed by man. At the conclusion of his remarks, Col. Lewis proposed that the other end of the table be heard from, and called upon the editor of the Louislanian,who expressed his pleasure at witnmssing such a truly representa tive assemblage. Itremind him of the early days of reconstruction, and ar gued well for the future unity and harmony of Republicans of the State; he attached special importance to the presence of Dr. Roudanes, so long a stranger to such occasions and expressed the belief tlhat it, more than the pres ence of any other man, demonstrated the possibility of Republican unity. This brought the Doctor to his feet; he feelingly acknowledged the compli mentary allusion made to himself, and spoke at some length ot his aims and purposes in the early days of recon struetion which had ever been to elc vate the oppremed, and to educate and advance the interest of his down-trod den people. The Doctor was given the closest attention and frequently Inter rupted by applause. At the conclusion of his remarks he shook hands with Gov. Warmoth as an evidence of his desire to let the past be forgotten. The call for our representativye being renewed, he resumed his remarks and stated that no man should make greater sacrifices for harmony and unity than he, but admonished his hearers that all efforts of his and theirs would fail to accomplish the result, unless accompa nied by the fraternal feeling which characterized the early days of the party. Colored men did not expect nor desire social equality but they did expect on all such occasions as these semLiqo.ial in their character-to re ceive such considerations as the nature of the case justly entities them to, and the recognition of this fact and its ob servance in the future will enable us to work harmoniously together. Judge Dumont was then called for and made an excellent speech, in which he declared he would never stand in the way of unity; his highest ambition was to serve his party, and if need be to fall in its defense like Gair and others. Speeches were made by Judge Cul lom, W. B. Merchant, Esq., and others. Col. Lewis, also, made a very happy speech, defended the ins and sympa thized with the outs. Col. Jack WVharton closed the speak ing with an able and eloquent speech and, at a late hour, the party dis persed. REPUDIATION. [Alexandria Democrat.] Almost every day this word is heard on the streets and in the conversations of gentlemen who are the leaders of public opinion and whose views ere worthy of serious consideration. The management of the State government, under its present officials, is anything but satisfactory. While discontented murmurs are heard from the best citi zens almost every day, against those who control our financial affklrs, this is not the worst, as the Democratic party is seriously affected by their conduct. Unquestionably a large majority of the people of this parish are in favor of re ducing the debt or, at least, the Inter eat thereon, and if the present state of taxation is kept up, the disposition will be to scale the debt, or repudiate it altogether. Such men as Judge Black man, Capt. Jeffrles, James C. Wise and others, who have the respect and confidence of the people, are openly in favor of reducing the interest on the bonded debt to one-half of the present rate. How much further these gentle men are prepared to go we cannot say, as they are discreet and look well to the interest of the State and the people. The idea that the Board of Liquida tion is ready and willing to pledge all the taxes due to the general fund to any bank which will advance the money to pay the interest on the bonded debt, to the exclusion of all other creditors and constitutional officers, Is unjust and will not be acquiesced in by the people. If the State is bankrupt let us so declare it and settle as this class of unfortunate debtors usually do. If not, let the taxes be collected by a strict ad herence to law, force every one to bear his burden, and not rob one set of creditors, who are working for the State, to pay the interest on a fraudu lent debt. Before this there has been an honest division of opinion on the best method to revise the constitution, but now all, it seems, are in favor of a constitutional convention, in order to rectify the abuses of the government. The present State government, to say the least of it, Is weak and does not meet the wants and demands of the people. A new deal, without embar rassing alliances or promises, is the only hope of change. We say now to the members elect of the Legislature that a very short session is expected, and, if the whole sixty days is con sumed in useless debate and unneces sary legislation, that the Democratic party will be hopelessly injured. Fif teen days, at the outside, is long enough to do what is required. Give way to a constitutional convention that will have power to repudiate the fraud ulent debt, or, at least, cut down the interest. This Is what the Cincinnati Commer cial (Rep.) thinks of the Grant move ment : The people have abundant time to consider the proposition that we have but one man fit to be President, and he our most distinguished military chieftain, whose most commendable quality in civil office was that of ad hering to his friends, who were chosen without special regard for the general interests. If we must have Grant for a third term, we must have him for a fourth. If he is a necessity to the country in 1SSO0, he will be indispen sable in 1884, and, indeed, we shall need him during.his life. The ten dency on this policy is perfectly plain. The American people cannot fall to understand it completely and reject it accordingly. We shall not be at spe clal trouble to stop the Grant move ment; it will stop itself long before the meeting of the next National Republican Convention. The United States Treasury has on hand a coin balance of $226,000,000 with which to undertake and maintain the resumption of specie payments. Of this sum, $2.0,000,000 is gold and $26,000,000 silver, besides subsidiary coin amounting to $12,500,000. With such a stock of specie on hand the problem of resumption may be consld ered as solved, and note holders will be in no hurry to exchange their paper currency for the more bulky and less cov-cnient coin. THEI PASUHK. st. Lanadr.I Mr. Joseph Froasrd, of Prairie Bfsme, near Grand Coteau, last week killed a hog of the Berkshlre-Chester breed, which weighed 555 pounds and gave 38 gallons of lard. It *as raised by Mr. Frozard, was only about 2j years old, and shows what may be done in St. Landry in the way of hog-raising.. -Opelousas Onrter. Orleans. We are reliably informed that con tracts have been made and signed for the completion of the Morgan, Louisi ana and Texas Railroad to Orange, Texas, by the first of January, 1880. N. O. Democrat. A disease somewhat like leprosy ap pears to be developing itself amongst colored people in the upper portion of the city, and already has created some alarm. If the disease be indeed iep rosy its spread should be carfully guarded against.-1V. O. City Item. Morehouse. The house of Mr. Wm. Humphrey, in the second ward of this parish, was the scene of a terrible tradedy on last Friday night, which resulted in the death of a young man named Sims Ste venson, at the hands of Willian Steven son, a cousin to the murdered man. I The former was the son of R. W. Ste venson, Esq., and the latter a son of Mr. Sam Stevenson, both residents of the second ward. A dancing party was In progress at Mr. Humphrey's on the night mentioned, at which were gathered the young people of the neighborhood, among them the two Stevensons, between whom a feud of long standing had existed; they had not been on speaking terms for several years. They renewed the quarrel at this party, and after exchanging a few harsh words, William Stevenson drew his pistol and fired two shots at Sims, both taking effect, causing death in a few minutes. The murderer fled and is still at large.-Morehouse Clarion. New Iberia. On Christmass eve, about 10 o'clock p. m., upon his return home, Mr. Glon soulin discovered his wife dead. Mrs. Gonsoulin was burned to death. Her remains were so charred and blackened by the action of the fire, that she could be scarcely recognised. Mrs. Oonsou lin had been for many years affected with fainting spells, and a species of epileptic fits. She was alone in their home, near the lower limits of town, at the time of the burning, her hus band being up town. It is not known In what manner she caught fire, nor whether while sufferring from one of he spells or not. There are reasons for believing that she had been dead some time when her husband came and found a corpse instead of a living wife whom he had left in the evening. The fire in the chimney-place was burnt out except a few coals, there were no coverlets left of the bed, a pile of ashes on the floor indicated that the poor woman may have wrapped herself in the bed-clothing in order to extinguish the fire.-&tuga Botowl. Calcasien. Considerable excitement was created in our town on Sunday night, about dark, by the escape from the parish jail, of one of the prisoners therein con fined, under sentence of death, for the I murder of Dr. Jos. Bazee. It appears, -from what we could learn, that the two prisoners, who were confined in f the dungeon of the jail, built a fire of old rags and other material, which caused a great deal of smoke. One of the prisoners, Absolom W. Ford, had, meanwhile by the use of a plank torn from the walls of the Jail, managed to climb up to the upper room of the pris on. Having concealed himself by the door, the alarm of fire was given. The jailers upon opening the door, were met be a volume of smoke; and believ ing that there was really danger to the Inmates of the jail, devoted their whole attention to the extinguishment of the fire. Profitting by the occasion, when all were thus occupied, the prisoner jumped suddenly from his place of con cealment, into the crowd standing about the door; and in the confusion that ensued, succeeded in making his escape. The night was so dark that is was found impossible to follow him, after the start he had. The sheriff has sent out deputies, we are informed, to attempt his recapture; and offers a reward of $250 for his rccapture.-Cal casieu Gazette. TELEGRAP'HIC ITEMS. Louisiana Legislature. NEW ORLEANS, January 6. - The Legislature convened to-day. J. C. Moncure, of Caddo,was elected Speaker, and C. M. Pegon, of Natchitoches, was elected Clerk. The Senate re-elected the old officers.

Ray, counsel for Secretary Sher man, filed a communication setting forth that he had no intention of offer ing further evidence on the subject of intimidation in the elections of 1876. Ex-Gov.

L. Smith for use in the Fourth Con gressional District. Hahn at that time was State registrar of voters. The wit ness testified that while Superintendent of the Mint he appointed Thos.
