The Report of the Sub-Commit tee on Louisiana. Washington, Jan. Il.-The state ment telegraphed from the Republican that the whole committee hadl started for New Orleans was wild. There is, however, undoubted discon tent. It is stated as indicative of the character of the report, that Mr. Potter, the Demooratic member of the committee, has been selected to phrase it. The Star says the full committee on Southern affairs met this morning to confer with the sqb committee who went to New Orleans to investigate the condition of affairs in Louisiana. It is indicated', through the evidence submitted, they will re port. 1. That at the late election in Lou isiana there was no intimidation of colored voters. 2. That the White League discus, sed but voted down a proposition to discharge servants who voted the (Re publican ticket. 3. That the Returning Board was a fraud. 4. That the United States troops executed orders issued by Marshal Packard on election day. 5. That the disorder in the Legis lature had ceased and the meeting was entirely orderly and quiet at the time Gen. De Trobriand entered the Hall to arrest the members, 6. That the onty request Speaker Wiltz made of Gen. De Trobriand was to keep order in the lobby out side of the Hall. 7. That the people ot Louisiana generally have no sympathy with the Kellogg Government, and that the colored men who say they are Nation al Republicans proclaimed themselves as State Democrats, in order to get rid of Kellogg. 8. That the police force in New Or leans is demoralized. The Cabinet meeting to-day was for the consideration of the special message on Louisiana affairs; but not being ready, the session was de voted to conversationover events there. The message will be consi dered in the regular Cabinet meeting to-morrow. " The Kellogg crew calls loudly for another committee to thoroughly in vestigate our condition, lnd when we know thatthe gentlemen who report as above were demanded by the same authority, it seems strange to us that Kellogg could find one partizan to defy public opinion further. It is useless for them to attempt any more investigation dodges as we perfectly understand their motives. Time is all they desire. The "hand writing on the wall" is too plain to be mis understood and the enemies of free government in Louisiana see their downfall full well, and this cry for other "investigations' is but to keep Congress from immediate action in the matter. They desire but one "more blow," and as soon as that is accomplished, we will be troubled with these men no more-and that is, to fund their illgotten and illegal bonds and warrants under the new consti tutional amendments. This they will attempt, and we can at this moment see nothing to deter them from doing so. The Kind of a Man Sheridan Is. A reporter of thie St. Louis Repub. lican interviewed the General of the armies of the United States on the morning of the 6th inst., and gives in his paper a very full and e.nter taining acconnt of what the General had to say of'matters and things in New Orleans, arid what hIe thought of Generals Emory and Sheridan. What Gen. Shermnan, the comman der of the forces of the United States, may think of the nature of the con flict which has been unceasingly wa ged by our people, for years, against corruption and oppression, can be matter of small moment to any one, inasmuch as hle is a soldier, and it has come to pass in these latter days that soldiers know nothing but their orders, and that whether those or ders look to the bombardment of a city full of women and children, or the dispersing of the Legislature of a State, they must be enforced. What Sherman thinks, however, of two of his subordinate officers is of more consequence, and hence we note spe cially what he said of Emery aud Sheridan. The former, hlie thought, was "a good man, an excellent officer of the old school, but perhapa a little timid in interfering in the civuil afairs of the State." The italics are ours. Sheri dan, he said, "is a kind-hearted, no ble-minded man, accessible to any who may have a suit to urge. But he is a soldier also, and does not hes itate to do his duty. If he thought it necessary, and believed it a matter of douty, the city of New Orleans would be no more regarded than an Indian village. He would not hesi tate to level it. That is the kind of a man Sheridan is. But be is also prudent and discreet, and will do nothing to complieate matters or pre cipitate events." Poor old Gen. Emory, snubbed by the President, insulted by Gen. Sher man, over-slanaghed by Sheridan, and doomed to attend the whistle-call of the most abject human being in Chris. tendom, his fate is a sad one indeed, and there lave been times in the his tory of this country whe an officer so sat upon, so grossly and flagrantly maltreated, would hlave torn his coln mission into tatters and retired from a service in which lhe could only reap di honor. The statement that Gen. Emory was, "perhaps, a little timid about interfering in the civil affdirs of tihe State," has been proven by Enmory's snbt/qnent conduct and ready sub serviency to Kellogg to be entirely unfounded; in fact, a base slander, for hle supervised tIe disposition of the Legislation, and in every way proved his readiness to commit any act of outrage upon thie rights of the people's representatives. Sherman will, no doubt, be delight ed to learn that Emory was altogethl er underserving of the censure imu Ilied in his remark. However the commanding General may have erred in his estimate of Emory's character, there can be no question of his correctness as regards Sheridan. The notorious barn burn er and butcher of Piegan women is evidently a man of his own heart, a large-hearted, noble-minded fellow, who would not hesitate a moment to level New Orleans, or to treat it "as an Indian village," wlich, being in terpreted, nleans that the leveling process would be accompanied with the indiscriminate butchery of women and children. A large-hearted and noble-minded fellow, truly ! Qaite a soldier, and in every way worthy of his military and civil chiefs. The time is coming when the sol dier who dares to utter such senti ments, the officer who dares defy the civil authority, will be hooted at by citzens everywhere. The time is not far distant, thank God ! when the soldier, be lie the General command ing, or his meanest subordinate, who dares intrude upon tihe floor of the House of Representatives of a State in the Union, for the purpose of in terrupting its proceedings, will be visited with the sultmary and con dign punishment he deserves. Un less the genius of liberty has indeed departed front our once happy, pros perous and fair land, the doom of such traitors as Slheridan, Williams, Grant and Morton is sealed. Benedict Arnold was a gentleman and a pure-minded patriot compared with any of the lot.-N. O. Bulletin. The- Denunciations from the States. THE FRIENDS OF LIBERTY. Gorernor Gaston, of Massachusetts, re fers to Louisiana. BosTon, Jan. 7, 1875. The following passage was added by Governor Gaston to his address shortly before its delivery : The presence of an armed force of the United States in a Legislature of a State for the purpose of setting an election contest between political parties is matter of great concern to all people of all States, more especial ly in a case were the possible effect of such presence may be to subvert tihe popular will and impose upon a people rulers whom tlhey have not selected, l invite the immediate at tentiou of the legislature to this sup ject. Goversor Alle, of Ohio, on the Fed eral Outrage. CoLUMDUs, Jan. 7, 1875, Governor Allen has just sent the following message to the General As sembly, whlich was referred to the Comnittee on Federal Relations: I desire to call your attention to the grave circuumstances of the inter ference of Federal troops in tihe or gaeniuzation and proceedings of the Legislature of a sister State. If the reported action of the military in un seating persons elainming to be menm Ie's of tiee Louisiana Legislature and giving tlheir places to persons contes ting thIe same is true and is legal and proper, then the same interference would be legal and proper, here, and it seems to me to be the duty of the representatives of the people of this State to at once enter a vigorous pro test against an election that may be made a precedent at some future time for the overtlhrow of efvil govern ment here. If there is a law war ranting thile settiog of contested elec tion cases in State Legislatures by the use of Federal troops, then, in my judgment, you should request its immediate repeal; ff there is no law for it then your indignant protest should beheard at Washington, in sisting upon such action by Congress as will prevent in the future such fla grant outrages against civil liberty. Governor Brows, of Tennessee, mon the Trampled Liberties of Lomuisiana. NASHVILLE, Jan. 7, 1875. Governor brown in his message to day refers to Louisiana matters as fol lows : Permit me to express my congra tulastionsa that, unlike the Legislative Assembly of our sister State, you hlaie been' allowed to anselmble peace ably ad Iperfect you organization without intimidation. No mllilitary force surround, your Capitol or dri ves from their rightful seats the re piesentatives of tl e people. The edict of a petty tyrant does not here avail to disperse the State Legisi;l ture. Yet, your immunity fron such I anll oltlrage is just nlow l;llae mlore conIspicuous by the spectacle of Lou- t isian.i tranpled illunder oot and des. poil'd of her liberties. If we may credit thit reports, thilt,; reach us through the dalyiiy press and wlhich seem to have the sanction of official althority, the power of the national government through its nilitary itrln is being used for the sualversion of tile liberties of the pl'eijle of Louis iana. Possibly it is not in your pow er to do more than interpose a sol estn and earnest protest against this gl;arlng crime. Yet if this be all that the representatives .t'? so valorous ai State as Teunessee may do, I trust that your protest lmay be made with l such emphlasis ind earnestness as to arrest the stteition of every patriotic I citizen in this Republic and awaken I the people everywhere to a sense of i danger that threatens our constitu- a tional liberties. Missouri Legislature-the? Gorcrnor's Messale refers to Louisica,a. St. Louis, Jan. 7, 1875. The Legislature organized to-day. Governor Woodson's Message is at lengthy documeent, devoted ahlitost exclusively to State affairs. Touch ilng the Louisiana question the Gov ernor takes strong ground agaiinst the Kellogg goverlnmlent andll federal in terl'ence, and urges the Legislature to adopt resolutions expressive of the inldignationt felt by the people of Mis souri at tihe policy pursued by the President and the radical party. Virginia Assemblymen preparing an e-. pression of views on Louisiana. Richmond, Jan. 7, 1875. A caucus of conservative members of the General Assembly will be held to-morrow night to give expression regarding the Louisiana affairs. The State Senators were in caucus last night on the same subject, but decided to postpone action till the general caucus. 'cennsylrania Legislature-p r o t e st against the Louisiana Indignity. Harrisburg, Jan. 7, 1875. The condition of AFFAIRS IN LOUISIANA among prominent politicians now as semtbled here is a subjlect which is creating grave excitement. A reso lution denouncing in bitter language the outrages committed there by the adminstration was prepared by sere ral members of the House, which ad journed to-day, however, before it could be. rewritten and put into pro per shape. It will no doubt be read as soon as the members reassemble, when an .expression is likely to he given that will be stern and decided. ~-----*-~·~-- ] Texas Legislature. Galveston, January 13.-The News' I Austin special says Senator Hobby i introduced the following resolution : "Whereas, It is the right and duty I of the States, on appropriate occasions 1 to give express!on to their sentiments I on all questions seriously affecting the integrity of the Ullnion and gen- 4 eral government ; therefore be it Resolved, That we recognize. in the late interference of the general goverument in the domestic nffairs of Louisiana and its distribution of the State government legally establilshed by thie people of that comnonwealth, I a manifest intent on the part of pre- , sent Federal admiiuistration to des troy the republican formn of govern uemit it the States. Section 2.

That to our sister State, in this hour of oppression and wrong ful afliction, we extend the deepest ' sympathy, and our .firm assurance that the American people will crown the presenit usurpers of power et the ( Federal government with just opin ion merited by the insult offered and a danger threatened to the entire nia tion. Action postponed until to-mor- a row. The St. Lounis ~imes says: There can be no doubt of thie President's complete success in destroying the sovereignty and prostrating the liber ties of Louisiana. With an acquies cence in the course pursued by the Federal authorities in New Orleans, I the American republic sheds the mask 4 of free government and enters boldly on the path of unadulterated des- 1 potism.

To Corn Beef.-Pack the beef, cut into pieces weighing not over six or eight pounds, into a cask, usiny two, pounds of salt to one hundred po:leulds of beef. In from two to four days the meat will be nearly covered with a brine composed principally of thi, blood which was in the meat, and which was drawn out by the action of the dry salt. Then take out the beef, rinse it well to remove all the blood, and repack, using four pounds of salt to the one hundred pounds of beef. Then take for each one hun dred pounds of meat three ipoundl' of salt, two ounces of saltpeter, two ounces of cloves, one ounce of ea\ - enue peper, and three pounds of clena light sugar or three pints of Inollsses. If the beef is not from a yolung anli mal add to the above two ounces of saleratus. Dissolve the ingredients in water, boil and skim, then cool and pour over the meat, adding wa ter enough to cover all well. A stone should be laid on the meat to keep it beneath the brine. The "drying" beef and tongues must be taken out in four weeks, washed and hung up to dry. Beef cured in this way will keep into hot weather. If the brine is drawn off in May and new put on, with five or six pounds of salt to the ihundred pounds, adding also one fourth of a pound of black pepper, the beef can be kept all through the hot weather, though it will not be so ten der after the second brine is put on. -Country Gentleman. A Red ink for marking clothes, which is not attacked by soap. alka lies or acids, is prepared by Welger as follows: Enough finely pulverized cinnabar to form a moderately thick liquid, is very intimately mixed with egg albumasn previously dilated with an equal bulk of water and beaten to a froth and filtered through fine linen. Mlarks tormed on cloth with this li quid, by means of a quill, are lized, after they have become dry, by pres sing the cloth on the other side with a hot iron. The ink will keep in well closed bottles for a long time without separation of the suspended cinna Ibr. A Good Salad.-Here isa salad tllhat will delight those who eat cucumber withl bread and cheese: Take a to mato not over-ripe, and cut it into slices, as yon would a encumber; take a small onion, and cut it uip as fine as you can, lsprinkle it over the tomnate slices, add salt, pepper and vinegar at discretion, and you will have a salad which, as a relish, puts the cucaober to shuame.-Gardiner's Chronicle.
