"hKW ORLEANS, FEBRUARY 27, 1876. CAN IMPEACHMENT SUCCEED? If the removal of Kellogg from the office which he has so long usurped were as easy as the first step, there can be no doubt that pub lic opinion would justify and approve the effort If the finding of articles of impeach ment, based upon serious charges, apart from the offenses involved in the act of usurpation itself, were sure to be attended by the sus pension of the Governor, and the restoration of the government to Democratic hands, policy would be consulted, and discretion would not be outraged by prompt action on the part of the House. Are these consequences sure to follow ? Is it not certain, on the contrary, that they will not follow? In the first place, the Radicals claim that there is a law in existence which defines the moment when suspension shall faV« place, under the Constitution, and under that law the Governor continues to exercise his functions until the articles of impeach ment ere presented at the bar of the Senate. It cannot be doubted that the Senate will immediately proceed to the trial, and there is jaat as little doubt that the trial will end in an acquittal. It may be urged that the House may delay the trial by declining to comply with Hi» customary antecedent formalities, but public opinion would not justify a delay so obviously contrived only for political and par tisan purposes. The Senate would insist on an immediate trial; Kellogg would int-ist on an immediate trial, and, in the eye of reason and of law, Kellogg and the Senate would be in the right. In the meantime, even supposing suspen sion to have taken effect, would the govern ment be remitted to Democratic hands ? Not at all. Antoine would act as Governor. It would be one Republican in place of another; one usurper in place of another. Is anything to be gained by su bstituting Antoine for Kellogg V Will the spectacle of a State ruled over by the person who holds his office by virtue of that infamous order, more infamous if possible than the " midnight order " itself, be more pleas ing to the publio, than that of a State ruled over by a Governor whose political offenses at least had been condoned by a compromise and adjustment, accepted by a large majority of tbe Democratic members of the House ? In a purely political and partisan sense tbe Dem ocratic party would gain nothing by placing Antoine in tbe chair, which Kellogg might, for a few daya, be forced to vacate. On the o th er hand, suppose that Kellogg were to refuse to submit to the impeachment. Suppose he were to defy the House and refuse to consider himself suspended from office; how is he to be removed ? He his all the powct of the State in his hands. Is the House prepared to excite an armed conflict in order to consummate a political revolution ? Is it prepared to excite a civil war, only to invite the armed intervention of the Federal Gov ernment, which our own friends in Congress, including the Speaker of the House, assure * We will be used for the . suppression of any attempt to oust Kellogg from his uffioe? Are WCto have another era of fruitless straggle for Htapnes impossible of accomplishment ? Is flc business of the community to be inter ' taplsd, is trade* to be paralyzed, is industry ieba eheoked, only that Antoine may for a or a week oooupy the office of Governor ? , If any one can point out the method where by Kellogg may be awteessfully impeached, and the means wheroby, if impeached, the legally elected offioers of the State may be ip duoted into offioe, the voice of the Bulletin will be, as it was formerly, for active and aggressive war; but, in view of the.great disaster that would result from failure to achieve the purposes of impeachment, and .in view, also, of the certainty of failure—at least, in our judgment—we are not prepared cbunsel or indorse the movement apparent , ip contemplated by tbe House. ' GOV. RENDRIONS AND I HE GERMANS The Times of Friday evening contained the following special telegram : Leading German politicians and journalists •ailed to Washington by the meeting of the National Democratic Committee have been warn ing Influential Democrats iu both houses that the nomination of Hendricks for the Presidency, would alienate the entire German vote of the ooontry from the Democratic party. Their reason far believing this, is that the Germans are very nweh disgusted with the action of Gov. Hen dricks in regard to the liqnor question m the State of Indiana. They say that during the late canvass, in hjs speeches and in private, he expressed himself as opposed to the prohibitory or strict licence law, ■rid after hie election, when the Legislature passed a stringent license act, it became a law by receiving his signature. A German, just re tained from a six weeks' sojourn in Indiana re porta that Gov. Hendricks would not get a dozen votes in that Bute. a. We have the best authority for saying that there is no snffioient fonndation for them statements. Gov. Hondrioks has enemies who are very much in earnest and very in dustrious in their attempts to injure him in toe esteem of (is countrymen. His course respecting prohibition is entirely misrepre ■snted. There is no opposition to him among the Democratic Germans of Indiana, and no complaint against him from that class of Democratic voters elsewhere, on aooount of his notions, speeches or opinions relative to «uoptuary laws. We may remark that the views and actions of Gov. Hendricks, as a cit isen and magistrate of Indiana on a matter pumly and wholly local, do not and can not in the slightest degree, affect his relations to the anti-Badioal party. A man may be a de termined enemy of tbe vioe of inebriety and atilt be a very thorough Democrat He might, although he does not, to onr knowledge, favor stringent laws in restraint of a very great evil, whioh unquestionably results in enormous damage, and yet be as thoroughly a devotee of political liberty, home rule and looal independence as Jefferson or Jackson or day. When tye representatives of the peo ple of Indiana desire to a pnt a check upon the excesses resulting from the alooholie habit they must be allowed to pursue their own way so as to protect the property, the morals and the lives of their people. Good men in that State will consider the motive and the occasion for prohibitory legislation, bat it U a subject with which other States have no concern. What the more intelligent dass of Germans in Indiana may think of Gov. Hen* as dricks, or what they may say witi* reference to his action upon measures intended to check the vice of drunkenness, we do not know and we do not intend to inquire. It is a matter which does not effect the Western champion of sound doctrine and honest action. It is really not respectful to the numerous class of voters of German origin to represent them as a class as turning against a statesman of foremost rank and precedence on any pre text so frivolous. Gov. Hendrxks is not an advocate of inebriety nor a favorer of the vendors of intoxicating liquors, yet is he a fanatic on the subject of tem perance or abstinence. He recognizes the fearful nature and formidable dimensions of a dominant evil, and, like a true patriot and citizen, he may try to check aud mitigaie it. But if he dots he limits his aotion to his own State, and he restrains his official conduct within the limits of the law. The day is not cjistant when truo and faith fnl legislators will be called upon everywhere to do sometbingto check the disease of drunk ennes8, more damaging in its effects upon its victims than any epidemic that sweeps over the land. It is a disease that takes from the patient the power to resist it, and makes him the instrument of his own torture and destruc tion. It descends from fathers to sons with au always increasing hereditary tendency. I is a lifetime pestilence that tortures millions. There is danger that the American people may beccme a nation of diseased bankerers for alcoholic poison, more pitiful and helpless in their dipdomania than the imbecile victims of opium in China. Tbe mere tax paid on distilled and malt liquors amounts yearly to more than it cost to support the government in the days when Jackson was at the wheel. The annual waste is so great that, if the same amount could be saved and invested for ten years, it would suffice to pay all the national, State, munici pal and county or parish debts now owing. In ten years more of sobriety and economy the gain would be sufficient to make our Re pu blic the wealthiest of nations. The abiest and best men, in and out of public position, are using all their strength of wisdom to contrive, and of eloquence to advocate, measures to prevent or cure or check this mast formidable of epidemic dis eases. They differ much as to methods of operation. They have tried many expedients and procured the passage and execution of many stringent prohibitory enactments, often of doubtful propriety and always with un 1 satisfactory effect. In spite of their efforts the disease grows wider and stronger from day to day. A BOLD THIEF. When Discovered by an Officer He Drops His Plunder and Makes His Escape. About 5 o'clock Saturday morning Officer Henechen, of the Third Precint, met a suspi cious looking character, supposed to be Spaniard, at the eorner of Boyal and Custom house streets, with a bundle in his hand. The officer stopped him, and when inquiring what he had in the handle, the unknown man dropped it and attempted to draw a revolver, but tbe cfficer was quicker than he was, and as he retreated down Boyal street the officer pur.-usd him and fired several shots at him to bring him to a halt, but he turned the corner of Bienville street and succeeded in making good his escape. The following articles, supposed to have been stolen, were found in tbe handle and taken to the Third Precinct Station, two bot tles of champagne, three handkerchiefs, two vests, one grey overooat, one alpacca sack coat, one tablecloth and a quantity of cigars, which the owner can recover by calling at the Station and proving property. LATER. The property has since been tamed over to the steward of the Pickwick Club, who iden tified tbe articles as the property stolen from the club-room, corner of Exchange Alley and Canal street, at an early hour Saturday morn ing. The Government Bather " Mixed." [From the New York World.] The government prosecuting officer, nnder the instructions to "Let no gnilty man es cape," is trying to arrest frauds on the reve nue, and convict and punish all who have had any part or lot in the conspiracy to rob the government. In discharging his dnty for the government, he finds tue head of that government, tpith the Attorney General, working against him and doing all witbin its power to defeat the prosecution. The govern ment in this case seems to be both the plain tiff and defendant—the law offioers at St. Louis engaged in the prosecution, while the President aud the law officers at Washington are working for the defense. Carl Schutz, in a letter to tue St. Lonis Westliche Post, writing of Presidential candi dates, says: We believe we do no one injustice if we say, for instance, that those Presidential can didates who try to make the old grndge newly kindled between the North and Soutn an element in the next campaign, ahd by it to divert the attention of the people from the real questions of the times, deserve the most decided distrust of all citizens who honestly wish trne reform and the elevation of the moral tone of our public life. If it is, there fore, of importance to tbe parties, or to one of them, to gain tbe confidence and aotive support of these citizens, this can only be done by nominating candidates wbo, instead of lowering themselves to such strategems, have given sufficient ground for the supposi tion that they are able to strive lor what is good on its own account, and that they pos se is patriotic spirit and moral courage enough to stake their position and future without regard to triend or foe, in order to do what public interest demands."

OUR BOSTON CORRESPONDENT Charlotte Ca-hmia'« Fanerai— Kelley's Re ply te Blaine— Wendell Phillips on B*p»b Uranism and the Presidency—School Mat leu-Artists at the Centennial—The Old Elin Tree. Boston, Fob. —, 1876. J)enr Bulletin —I have just returned from the funeral of charlotte Saunders Cushman, the cele brated actr bp, who for many years held undis p .ted the foremost place among the interpreters of the English drama. She was interred in Mount Auburn, where sleeps Daniel Webster, Edward Everett and Charles Sumner. Her death was not unexpected to her friends, for the had long been suffering from a painful malady, which it was evident would ultimately result fatally. Her soul has now taken its departure from this earthly tenement, and the place she filled will be void, because the • profession she so much loved and so eminently adorned for nearly half a century has not yet produced, one worthy of her mantle. Theie were present at the funeral, beside various members of the theatrical profession, Gov. Bice and other State dignitaries, and a large concourse of some of the wealthiest busi ness men of the city. It was the intention of Jarrett and Palmer originally to charter two palace cars for the purpose of bringing on the company of Booth's Theater, including Lawrence Barrttt, E. L. Davenport aud F. C. Bangs, to gether with other prominent actors and the principal New York managers. Had Sunday been chosen for the obsequies this design would have been carried out. The fioral tributes were mag nificent, those of New York being particularly not ceable. Jarrett and Palmer's memorial was a large and costly one, representing a bed of white ruses, on which were placed the legend in violet letters, " Faro Thee Well," and a column b< aring a crown, surmounted by a cross. The one from Lawrence Barrett represented a sheaf of wheat, the pillar being girded with a vine of autumu leaves At the base were forget-me nots and immortelles. Tue pedestal bore the single word "Bes ." Mr. looker'a tribute was a laurel crown knotted with broad white satin ribbon. lhe reply of Pig-Iron Kelley to Blaine's retump tion speech has created quite a stir in the ranks of tue' Republican party. Hia vigorous dissent from Blame's talk about the Republican party having put its differences of opinion behind it, and united for hard money, would not have any significance if itwere not that they are warranted by fads. Morton and the Western Republicans who turned up as hard-money men in the last campaign, are now leaning far over toward soft money, and a gentleman who arrived here from Washington the other day, says that the Indiana Sena or will, at an early date, mike a speech, in which ho will announce his financial platform for lbTti. His financial opinions have to be calculated anew for each political year, and he is now get ting ready for a reiteration ot r is soft-mouev views or two or three years ago. Kelley is more earnest than ever over h:s expansion theories. He is marling his speech all over the country, and, it is but fair to presume, it 1 will have a very extensivo perusal. He intends, he says, to carry the agitation for currency reform into evt-ry hamiet of Penn sylvania, aud prophecies that the party, whatever its name, which forces resumpiiou of specie pay ments prior to the practical extinction ot the na tional debt, whether that be in ten years or thirty, will be trampled to death under the feet of the people. Wendell Phillips, who has publicly acknowl edged that he never voted in his life, is the laughing stock of New England, going about as h 1 is doing and declaring with all his old accus tomed fire and vehemence, that the American Republic is a failure, and there is but little hon esty left in the laud. He has been accustomed of late to put his foot into so many blunders that he is too old to do otherwise now. Noting more incorrect can be said about the American Repub lic, whether we compare it with other forms of government or look at it alone. Some of the greatest and best of nations hive been Repub lics, and if they failed, that is no more than befell Monarchies of almost every kind, their contemporaries. Athene, that most brilliant of Republics, failed, and men who S*w the beginuing of her greatness lived to see its close ; but thtn her failure was not as complete as that of Persia. The "Great King," if you remember, was cut down and uprooted, whereas the Athenian polity loDg continued to exist, though on a much smaller scale than it had known. The Roman Republic failed, and so did tho Roman Empire. The Republic of Car thage failed, and ss did the Kingdom of Egypt. In modern times, the Republics of Holland and Genoa and Venice were great creations, aud their places are sure in history, but they are no more; and tho same can be said of the Kingdom of Holland and the old French anarchy. If you had read history aright, Mr. Phillips, with all your splend d dioiou and magic eloquence, you could not have helped notice t at a republican, form of government has not failed to do great things in not a lew countries. Will any American d - liberately asse.t that his c.untry is a fSilnre? Certainly not. I grant that a republican form of Government has not dono all that it should lave done in the United States, but it has done much, and it has cleared the way for the doing ot much more. It may become aii instrument of much oppression when bad men are at the helm—men just a trille worse than we have bad specimens of the past six years or more—but it tan not as yet be considered a fail ure. It has no occasion to fear comparison with anything else that belongs to the lists of modes of government, whether it be monarchical < r theore ical. But if our government should pro re a failure, wi l Wendell Phillips tell us what to fall back upon? Does he wish us, in his blind ignorance, to lean, for support, upon the despotism of an individual, or upon that of a latrician class with a king at its hdad? God orbid! But while going about uttering his highly wrought denunciations of our republican institutions, Mr. Phillips spares sufficient time to dabble in politics, and .is now endeavoring to compete with 8am Bowles, of the Baring field Jlepublican, in nominating his man for the Presidency. Wh le it is an understood fact, all over the country, that Cha les Fr mcis Adams 8am Bowles's choice, first, last and aiwavs, you will b< astonished not a little when I tell von Uncle Ben Butler is the man whom Wendell Phillips wishes to see in tbe executive chair in the White House, in 1877. And, as if to heap Pelion upon Ossa, this silver-tongued orator aud fanatic wants Frederick Douglass nominated for the Vice Presidency. I wonder he did not tbink of Pinchback, or your tiny, black faced Lieuten ant Governor, Cæsar Antoine. It is a geuuine pity that the public schools of New Orleans are not fashioned after those of New York or Boston. But how can they be with stich a Board of .School Directors as you have had of late? In Boston, music and drawi"g are made promi nent features of study ; iu 8t. Louis, natural history and chemistry, in Europe, great atte tion is given to school buildings, aud upon this subject our Amertcau cities are, it seems, cousiderably divided. Boston has achieved her present fame on the subject of schools and their government, by a careful attention to ail branches of the sub ject, and a wie poli cy of introducing tbe best features of other ,-ections and venturing into ex perimental paths on her ow n accou-it. Chicago, fct. Lonis and Ban Francisco are closely following in her track, but, unfortunately for those cities, the persons chosen for school directors or com mittee-men, or whatever you may choose to call them, have not always been the wisest and most judicious selections'that could have been made. Here, in Boston, the "sc ool committee-men " only exercise their true functions, and leave the more strictly prof esioHal du'ios of education in the hands of those more qualified by experience and life-long study for i's performance. If your "school directors " could be induce 1 to take a step in that direction, it would be found produc tive of so much good they would feel highly flattered at the re ult. The interest in the Centennial Exhibition among the artists seems scarcely so general as it was hoped would be the case, although it is con jectured that at the iast moment a d eper feeling may be developed. As matters now stand, it is unde stood that there will be 75 c ntributors from this city, which js a fair ^presentation compared with the 150 of New York, 81 from Philadelphia and about 115 trom the rest of tha States. It is underst u d the ccmmitteeof ten on the selection of pictures will visit the prin cipal cities and sit in judgment on tbe local col lections.

Th« finest picture of the lotis "The Boston Boys and General Gage," bjr Henry Bacon. It is s of to a in " tuttpujci * n- -.ri United states Circuit Court was unusu ally crowded Saturday morning, for it was - - large canvas and represents the portico of an old-fashioned m»nsion, with the red-coated general standing hatless on the stoop, surround ed by his officers, listening to the spokesman of the group of indignant boys, whom a soldier keeps from too near approach by fencing in the general with a bayonet. Beside the lads, some ef whom have their sleds with them, are several other persons, who appear as merely incidental to the scene. In the foreground two young women are whispenug saucuv together ; farther off a maid is seen resenting some proffered gallantry of a soidier, and from a window of the honse a servant's black face leers derisively upon the scene. The composition is well worked up, though, as a whole, it is not remarkably effective. The figures are carefuriy paiuted, but those of the children seem the most natural and uncon strfinc-d. The young women, wh se slippered feet seem so poorly protected against the snow covered ground, while their hands are buried in muffs, and the mad dhd.iniug, yet coquet« tiug with the soldier, are altogether too French-liko in style and posture to be germane to the scene. As an entirety, however, the pictuie has many admirable points and is not devoid of considerable of interest, but as a work of art, it will not stand a ghost of a chance along side of some of the paintings which onr French cousins intend to charm ns with. In painting, America is far behind Europe. The great elm tree on Boston Common is now numbered among the things of the past. It suc cumbed, alter an existence it is supposed of two centuries and a half; to a fierce gale which raged with great fury, Tuesday of last week. It is be lieved that it was of respectable growth when* Boston was founded in 1630; aud, if it be true that the early settlers utilized it for hanging purposes, it must have been a stout affair more than two hundred years ago. Its later history is clean and honorable, and is associated with the Revolution, concerning which all school boys are well posted. If it was a tree :n 1630-, it must have dated from the reign of James I, first of the Stuart dynasty, who'died in 16JS, and it ou: lasted dynasties as well as men, but not to emphatically as the still living " Great Walnut Tree of Yustô," which bore that name more than three hundred years ago, aud under which Charles V sat in 1558, aud " which saw the hermit's cell rise iuto a royal convent and sink into a ruin, and has survived the Spanish Order of Jerome, and the Austrian dynasty of Spain." » E H.

Two Cotton Men Seut to the Parish Prison for Contumacy. . reported that there would be a grand charge of the revenue brigade, their commmder, Gen. Brady, having returned to the city. A little after 11 the Grand Jury retired, and ^he first witness before them was Mr. Henry Stein, clerk of the steamer Charles Morgan, running between Cincinnati and this ci:y. Mr. Stein testified at Indianapolis in the Bingham cases, and it is supposed he has been called here to repeat it. The testimony, as published at the time, was that • there was a consignment of whisky taken on rather surreptitiously n o ar Evansville, for Fairchild & Bingham, of this city. That he was asked to put it down on the manifest as 11 >ur, and when the boat reached Natchez, he received a telegram not to land the whisky at the wharf. That parties connected with the house went down to the boat when she arrived here and wanted the consignment erased. Special agents Wheeler and Hill were in at tendance on the Grand Jury, anditissiid there will be some four indictments presented to day. IN COTTON there is also a movement, and Barrett with his assistants are busily engaged preparing papers for presentation in the several cases of fraud against the • government. At 11:30 o'clock District Attorney Beckwith presented the finding of the Grand Jury against Adolph Bouchard and N. B. Lapoint FOR C'iNTUMiCY. It appears that Bouchard and Lapoint htve been engaged in pushing through cotton claims, and had iu their possession certain papers which the Grand Jury wanted. At first they promised to furnish them, but afterwards refused, alleging that the docu ments were lost. The Marshal arrested them, and they ap peared before Judge Woods. The Judge read the charge, and after a short consulta tion with Judge Bi'lings, wbo was on the bench with him, ordered that both parties be sent to the Parish Prison, there to be con fined in separate cells until they produce the papers called for. Deputy Marshal Steele took them in charge, and they were escorted to jail. After the Grand Jury had occupied much time with the whisky investigation, they went into cottOD, and progressed considerably in the Bellocq-Noblom case.

A United Sta'es Sena'or will have to be elected by the Legislature to be chosen this*year, and this is what imp >rts chief interest to the result of the coming election, for it is not probable that either party will have so large a majority in the popular vole as to ind rate any decided political change or reaction .—Columbus (Go.)
