The Gin house and Stable of Mr. st" Richard Flemming, on Red river, were tile entirely distreyed by fire on the night tra of the 15th inst., and their entire con- late, tents, consisting of twenty-three bales foi of cotton and six mules, totally ex destroyed. Eleven bales of the cot- xti ton belonged to the Revels, two lend- ful ing colored citizens of ward 3, of our tia parish, who broke with the Boullt- fey M[yers party on the formation of the ab: Black League last Spring, and have ailt since been untiring in their efforts to til assist the good people in the over- in throw of the villains who have plun- me dered, not only us, but the colored ph people of this parish for the past six L years without mercy. Van Dusen, de the hero (1) of the Colfax raid of 1874, thi and the fligly immigrant of H. C. i Myers, endeavored tointimidate these Re and other colored men in that sec- I tion, and in fact, became on over- bil bearing to them as to force the citi- alt zens into an assistance of the colored Bt opponents of the Van Dusen party. c Threats have been made against the de Revels by negroes for some time past Ct but little attention has been paid to ty their muttering, but alas! we can see n' bow very much they have imblped the teachings of Boullt to "lay waste our to entire parish." In one moment is th swept from' two worthy colored men v the hard earnings of a season, an1, ti the only support of their families-nd- di ring the coming year; Mr. Flem p ming's loss is as serious, as this is his ti all, and the destruction of six finei mules, leaves him totally unable to tf support a large family, by his farm. ti The incendiary Radicals had as meek c animosity against Flemming as the Revels', for he was nme of the leading g opposers to th6 Boulkt gang in tba1t v section of country,. and no doubt the 1 cries of his wife and children for bread, will be sweet music to the ears a ~~ Blunt, 1Myers, and their vile assoi i ilates, but we know that there will C be a debt to pay that "will aake all things even" in the end-a debot which they will acknowledge a "dear one I for the music." Let the "Bandit seek er," Phil. Sheridan, order up his forces and investigate this outrage, and see. ift he can find any "White Leaguer to blame.

In regard to the general conditioli of busilless and society ill that u1nha1111py3 State, they find that Co G.ov. Kello.g is vested w ith a degree. of wr "'scarcely exercisedl by any sovereign in the world," that the Swant of lptpar conlidence in his Ii,.manltie trlud" of a (Govwernorshill is b so general that it "is Iamccollpanliied by F the paralyzation of business and des traction of value"; that houses and fair stores in New Orleans "are to be hadl ' for taxes" ; and that "taxation has a been carried almost literally to the extent of confiscation." The claim that Kellogg has reduced the debt by ea i funding it at 60 cents (which was par- at tial repudiation) is met by the asser- 8 tion that the arbitrary r-owers con- isI ferred upon the Funding Board eC- Tit abled it to admit $6,000,000 of fraud- pe ulent debt, thus increasing the obliga tious of the people, to pay money they did tot owe under pretense of reliev ing them from obligations to pay money which they did owe.. Tlie de- qui plorable condition of the people of io Louisiana, politically and commercial- go ly, has never heen more strikingly I described than it is in the report of this Sub-Committee. Coming to the examination of the Returning Board's action, the Comn- i5 mittee find that it wis "arbitrary, unjust, and illegal; and that this ar bitrary, unjust, and illegal action alone prevented the return by the "' Board of a majority of Conservatives at members to the Lower House." This a conclusion is reached from the evi dence which was taken before the Committee, who examined over nine. ty-five witnesses, and elicited testi mony which fills more than 1,500 printed pages. The original returns te gave the Conservatives a majority of t( twenty-nine out of Ill members, and the Sub-Committee say that there di wan, on the whole, "a free, fall, fair, and peaceable election and registra tion," and that "there was %o evi dence of any intimidation of voters practiced on the day of election." Yet the returning Board, not examining the returns in parishes where there was a protest until after the unpro tested parishes were counted in, re turned an equal number of Republi cans and Democrats as elected, leav ing five vacancies undetermined for the House to fill. The Committee give samples of the pretexts on which t votes were thrown out. In Bapides I 'Parish, three Conservatives were elected aid their election was not Sncontested. At the very. last sesion 4 of tile Returning Board, witioit ogiv- F 1. ing the Democratic counsel time to I coutradict the statements, an affida vit of ex-Gov. Madison Wells, tihe President of the Returning Board, h was introduced ; it set forth that there I me had Ibeen intimnidatioaiu certain parts . lof tli parish, and so the three Repub- I licans were declared elected I " The SCongressional Committee has evi '8 dence before themn showing that ex SGov. Wells was not i tIe parish at all on the day of election, and no otl.er evidence of intimidation could be found. In the Parish of DeSoto, ao Conservative was elected by over - 1,000 nimajority, but the Board refused jto count the votes. The Election law Sprovides that the Supervisor shall make the returns. In this ease tihe supervisor braught them to New Or o leans and gave them to a woman of m bad character who offered to' sell them for $1,000. Thie Conservatives caused the duplicate returns, filed' in Sthe Secretary of State's office accord a, Ing to law, to be produced before tIhe - Board, together with the t!ly-,heets, polii$es,'etc. Tlhse confirmed the Conservative majority, but the Board e, refused to recognize them. Thus a Kellogg official was enabled to un y seat a Conservatire elected by a Sthousand majority by his individual violation of the Eleetion law. Other Sinstances of the same procedure were foundl in other parishes, duly detailed in the roport, in towhich the same-vil te lainy huad been practiced.~" The law it. is such, therefore, that the officials d, appointed by thie Governor, together he with the Returning Board, also ap ointed by the Governor, may at any time defeit tihe Qpposition, no matter ierl wlat majority of the votes it- may ,f have polled. It is only fair to-state that the Kel logg faction in New Orleans have teleigraphed to' the President, and ll ciased to be promulgated throughout the eonatry, that- thie Congressional Sub-Committee heard only one ;side of the.case; amid that they adjourned Ill adleft New Orleans bfore the other i side could get in heir evidence. In e( fairsnes it mustbo .stated that u theob-CCommitteedistinctly declare that "They reeeived all the testimony e that was offered, and -in addition th ey .rcelived ill the testimony that was:,thien on ialdd in4 New (r~lras, . offered by either party, as t~aiethe soa dition of affairs in otlher parts of the SState? The relatlons'of e-iv over " orWell toWard the -ouptie ttee also ot appear to cointrovert thi6 'present c. claim of the Kellogg faction. He was repeatedly invited to appear before Sthe Committee; but declined.' After i the Committee had adjourned, he of ib fered to make a deposition; the Com m mfttee theni reconvened to 'reelve his testimon, but Ihe aa: idelaed Sto come efore them. They also:gave .!' bim the privilege of giving his evi ta decbee before a United States Com *' missioner ; bat this he likewise re fused to do. SCiapt. Matt L.
