The Legislature of the Stute of Colorado, which was brought into existence before its limo, has, in addition to choosing threo Hay and Wheeler electors, elected two Republican United States Senators. New York, November 26. The Tribune soys In his Interviow with Governor Tildon last evening Gor- cruor Hendricks said that public sentiment in the western States in regard to the election was so strong that he was impelled to oome cast to ascertain tha condition of the public feeling here. He expressed his admiration at the conduct of the southern Democrats who, With out the loast mauifestntiou of tur bulence, had appealed everywhere to tho courts ; and was glad, both iu the west and on his journey hitherward, to uotico the disposi Hon of all parties to have matters ' 3,655,086 amicably and lawfully settled. He felt that their cause was just ana would ultimately triumph by tho will of the American people. Gov crnor Tildcn fully concurred with all o Governor Hendricks's re mark, and there appeared to bo a perlect accord of ideas in regard to the questions of the hour, while there seemed to be a lack of con fidence in the doings of the return ington by the Presldout on the e of tho assembling of Congress, an. act calculated to throw diserod tt upon the disposition of the peo ple to obey the law and submiuo the results of the Presidential elec tion as legally ascertained, Slid to excite unnecessary alarnvaa to the stability ot the Republic, thereby periling peace ot home and public credit abroad Resolved, Thai wo' recommend to the Democratic Central Com mittee! of the Stato to correspond and confer with other State" Demo cralio Committees nf iVe country, with the view to a full nnderstauA. Ing of the facts aud perfect con cert of action,' in maintaining the Itrhia of the tMJOhle In tho late rs , Presidential election, as determiu ed by proper legal aothorlflos. We make the iollotiug extract from tha speech of Gcn'l Kwingt The worst thing tluU has barn uttered in thil crisis was the dec laration of President Grant,4hat if the roturnlng officers roturr.cd votes enough to elect Hayes, he should be inaugurated, and that a judicious use of the army In ad vance, by way of preparation would prevent any question or dis turbance as to his right to take the scat. Now, if that means any thing, it moans that no matter how fraudulent the action oi the n..in i-i.i nir Him rl h In tlioso States . n g mfghf be, he would have the army III WaBllinifion in numoern buuivv ent to prevent the House cf Bep esentatives from calling In ques tion tho validity of Hayes's elec tion. He has already brought the troops there, knowing that while all eves aro fixed on Louisiana, Florida und South Carolina, tho concentration of troops in Wash ington Would attract but little at tention, whereas, If ho postponed it-a month hence, tho eoncsntrw lion of troops then would W con sidered to mean a menace against tho House,- but thev aro there la advance But let them beware Ho is not dealing wjth a subjuga ted Southern State, but with the American people . He may dis perse tho Legislature in far-off Louisiana, but lot him keep his Shcridans out of the Capitol 1 Prolonged applause, and a Voice, "Three cheers for TotnEwingl" Also cries of " Go on."
