staple» by say twenty per cent. If so, and if jou tlius awmallv add fifty million dollars to onr supply of gold ; and if a rigid eoonomy be intro, duced and observed, bo as to reduce onr national expenditures by forty or fifty millions more, our financial questions will ba solved. Gold and silver will accumulate, the difference in commer cial value between them and our papsr currency will rapidly decrease, and with a stable currency commercial confidence and confidence in useful ente rpriscs will be restored. It is onr duty and our safety to give proper hoed to the opinions of men of experience iu financial and .commercial matters, but the wildest theorist would hardly a-k us to base our hopes of a return to specie payments on a courphcated and ingénions pian of borrowing gold. Tint would be sure to disap poiut us, and would very probably lead us into still mort/scrious perplexities. I can not avoid the conviction that, a ptréunent improvement in our financial condition requires a closer economy especially in public expenditures, and an increase of our valuable exports, and your relation to this snbject is of the nightsl importance, because of the great value of your staples, and the constant demand for thorn in the markets of the world. This I do believe is coming to be understood and properly appreciated by the people of the North The hard limes following the panic have made them fool that you and they have an interest and a welfare in common. And in any just cause in volving your prosperity, you wiii find a reliable snpport as sell in the self-interest as m the jus tice of tho North. Who among you can best help in the great work of buiiaiug up oar national prosperity? All elatsos can be helpful. The mechanic who contrives and constructs a plow which, with the same draft, will run eue inch deeper than the plow you have been using, or whose honest work will make the old plow last a season longer; the chemist wfio teaches you the c-uisti tuent ele ments of soils and plants, and the conditions of fertility io any plant on aav soil ; tho editor who gives his daily or his weekly column to the re cords of experimental husbandry by which the scientific few help to enriefi the many ; the intel ligent experimentalist who tries the theories of students by tho patient teat of practi cal experience ; the nusbandman who does an honest «lav's work in a fair day's time; tho oarufui housewife who may possibly appear to make but utile, but who can and does save much; tho upright legisl : tor, who looks rather to the honor of his country and the interests of his constituents than to the exigencies of hi« party, and by righteous laws protects your persons and propartv; the pure and just judge whose heait ana hands are clean from ad corruption, and whoso authority shelters rich and poor and weak and strong alike ; the unselfish and laborious c xecutive, who administers the laws for the hap piness and well being of tne people of the com monwealth; all those can help you, but above all others tu ose who make the laws, and those to whom their interpretation and execution are con fided. Gambling speculations may indeed be pros perous when the foundations of society are all unset'led ; but not so with fhe houest pursuits and productive arts of life. The agriculture and mechanic can not prosper under bad laws, wr under laws which are dishonestly, unrighteously . or partia'lv administered. They can not bear the burden of taxation which inevitably falls upon them when self-seeking and corruption oontrol public p flairs. 1 b lieve that the stability and sense of sagprity which are essential to perma nent prosperity requin s that onr political institu tions shall be entirely restored, as well in their spirit as in their form. Our experience has established the fact that they are peculiarly adapted to our condition and wants as a people. It must be settled so that it shall not again be questioned thiltliu powers whidh belong to the btates under oir form of government shall be exercised by the Btates without anafaterferenoA intimidation or control from witb«^ sion which has brought yomtoget sped political or partisan,whd I would j single word violate its proprieties.

We are entering upon m hundreoth year of national existeuoe. Until ft be our year of ju bilee ? Though debts be not released, nor lauds restored, yet past oontrovmpiee may be laid aside, and dai gérons je alignes may he sup pressed. Oar development and progress have been wondetfuL Onr troubles, I believe, will sooa be over. Shall we not then joj fully repeat the old commandment to "cause the trumpet of the jubilee to sound ?" This year defines and marks a period. Hence u forth the centuries will measure and define the * stages of American preferess, as the Olympiads jma the fifties did among the ancient Greeks and Hebrews. • This Centenary will be crowded with appro priate expression* of i numerable happy memo ries reaching back even beyond the contury. Gen us, learning, Wealth and enterprise are now engaged jp making prepawiiion to exhibit our progress in population, wofith, intelligence, in the arts and sciences, in mechanical skill, in manufactures, mining and agriculture. Your Exposition is the first for 1876, and as I have approve«! its purpose, so I mast, congratula e you upon itB success. I trust that in tho Na tional oelebration .the States here represented will be present by appropriate delegations, and that amidst the evidences of the wealth, the greatness and the glory of our common country, at the oradle of our liberties, and by the altar or the Constitution, we may once more pledgo our lives, our foi tunes and our sacred honor, to the glorios* declaration the father«. to H.

To be itate and yonr If ience THITVI8IT0BS . present numbered probably about eight°hundred, many of whom were drawu thither by the pros pect of witnessing the pigeon shooting. Those who did visit the grounds were mostly strangers, and after passing the entranoe were first intro duced to the display made of improved A0RIOULTURAL IMPLEMENTS. Under the spacious shed used for that purpose, reapers, sowers, cotton planters, plows, end s host of other instilments of improved husbandry ( were arranged here, each baring its appropriate place. Farther along stood a ponderous sugar mill, from Leeds & Oo., ready for the application of power to roll out the saccharine juioe, beside which were tho latest improvements in saw mills and eastings, entered by W. L. Cashing, Esq., the well known agent for such machinery here. Entering MACHINERY HALL the stranger was at first puzzled at the apparent confusion. Huge pumps, heavy centrifugals end humming circular saws made the room not a little noisy, and it took some moments' consider ation and n flection before a choice of roflte down the hall could be determined. On the left,entering, «here was a handsome dis play of the Baxter Portable Engine, where all the engines were at work. In this hall Hr. W. L. Cushing seems to be the principal exhibitor, for on all sides we found ootton gins, shafting, pumps, and a long catalogue of other work in the same line with hu card upon them. The ma chinery was not all placed in position, but before Monday will probably be. " DEPARTMENT 0 presented a more pleasant appoarance. The en tries here were more numerous, and tho style of goods of a character more pleasiag to an ordinary observer. On the left of the doorway, neatly ar ranged, we« the shoe mamilactory of L. Cabanl and P. Parti where tho inysteriee of sorew sew ing were seen. Nearer the center of the hall 8. G. Kreeger has E very large display of kid gloves, and near him Messrs. Blackinar A Finney have a rich display of pianos an 1 organs. Next were the entries of Mr. Grünewald, where was to be found overv variety of musical instrument from a Jew's harp to a piano. Messrs. B. T. Walabe, Moody, Nugent A Rillieux, Chittenden, Bice Bros., Sul livan A Bulger, Kursheedt A Bienvenu, E. C. Palmer and J. 8. Aitkens were also represented by an elegant display of goods. DEPARTMENT B was well filled. Messrs. Geo, W. Dunbar A Sons bad on hand, as ever, a choice selection of pre serves, etc., from their extensive establishment. Adjoining, J. H. Iii- lier displayed a perfect moun tain of choioe soaps, all of delioious fragrance and eolor. L. C. Arny, the well-known ale and porter dispenser to his Majesty Uex, showed samples of his beverages next, represented by Mr. James A. Roberts. His display or bottled Philadelphia ales was quite an attraction, and many pro nounced them unsurpassable. Near Mr. Arny'a was exhibited the home vintages of the Kelly Island Wine Company, also presided over by Mr. Roberts. Mr. Ed. Yorster's bottled lager beer, tastefully arranged, «atme next, and the canned goods of that well-known house, O. H. Lawrence A Oo., adjoined. Rareshido A Maes exerted their well known energies and presented to the appreciative eye of all one of the u- fitst selections of Acme whiskys, . jou onr our and and of of the of Gou'et Champagne and Crosse A Blackwell' pickles and sauces that has ever been shown here. Their Cognac brandy. Eagle gin, Sootch whi-ky, Alsop'g and Bass's alee were enticing even to the ladies. Paul Gelpi and J. J. Martin, of No. 5 Camp afreet, Miller A Dielman and a boat of other firms, had on band also a general display of their s'ockg. D. L. Uanlett showed some choice speci mens of his rope and cordage ; and Bonnebel, always public sp rited, was represented by his bi-sulphate of-lime. Up stairs visitors were at once attracted by the display of racing and other boats. Onr old friend John Mahoney, of Algiers, made an un usual exhibition of b<a skill as a builder and marine architect. Among other entries no con noisseur could fail to notice the beautiful 30-foot gu?, lap streak, built for the St. John Rowing Club out of choice Alabama juniper. It weighs less by sixty pounds than New York boats of the same dimensions. Mr. Mahoney had also other samples -or bis handicraft on èxh'bitiun —all models of delicate workmanship and building. With the above was a single scull shell built by Master Chas. R. Ma honey, who is only 17 y« ars old, and a "chip of the old block," John. It is worthy of the atten tion of onr boating men, and being of Spanish cedar, is as light as a feather. At this, the mere opening* of the fair, it is im possible to do justice to tue exhibitors, but we will, when space permits, notice all. THE TOURNAMENT. The inauguration yesterday of the grand pigeon snooting tournament, held ander the auspices of the Crescent City Rifle Club, was a great success. There was a large attendance of spectators to witness the shoo ing, and it was evident by the inter« st displayed that the visitors to the grounds considered that the pigeon shoot ing was one of the features of the Fair. Among those who took part in the contest were some of the best wing shots in tho country. Below we append the scores made in the two matches: TRAP 8IÏOOTINO. Turne No. 1—$1000 cash—Entrance $20.

Reports of the Committees. The following majority and minority reports were yesterday received by the House from the committee appointed to investigate the official conduct of Gov. Kellogg: THE NA.TOBITZ REPORT. To the Honorable Speaker and Members of the House of Representatives: The special committee appointed tbe Honso to investigate the conduct of Wm. Pitt Kellqpf to ascertain whether he has committed high crimes and misd-meanors in offiie while dis charging the duties of Governor of the State of Louisiana, respectfully beg leave to report: That they have found upon investigation that the said Wm. Pitt Kellogg, while acting as Governor of the State of Louisiana, has committed many vio lations, in his official capacity, in exercising the foncions of Govern« r, of the Constitution and laws of the State of Louisiana, and do submit tbe following preamble ank resolutions for the con sidération of the House, and recommend their adootion: Whereas, testimony taken by a committee of this House discloses the fact that Wm. Pitt Kel logg, while aciingas Governor of the State of Louisiana, and exercising the functions of said office in the month of October, 1874, and in the month of January, 1875, at and in the par ish of Orleans, did aid and abet, and was accès sory before the fact, to a double crime against the State of Louisiana, tne law« and Constitution thereof, in procuring the withdrawal of money from the State Treasury without any 'lawful warrant for so doing, and in causing i to be taken from a fund set apart by the Const! tut'on and laws, to pay the interest on the con solidated bonds isbued by the Funding Board,, which the faith of tbe State was solemnly pledged to maintain sacred and inviolate, and that this felonious tampering with the honor of the State and its bond-holding créditais, was accomplished by means of the power which his official position as Governor gave him over the State Treasurer who, as the evidence shows, was very reluctant to violate the law, and only did so at the press ing instigation and importunity of the said Wm, P. Kellogg. And, whereas, many of the Democratic and Conseivative members of this House feel bound in good faith by the terms of the adjustment known as the Wheeler compromise, not to dis turb the said Wm. Pitt Kellogg for official miscon duct occurring anetrior to the 14tli day;of April, 1875; and, whereas, your committee find upon investigation that said Wm. Pitt Kellogg, in dis regard of the high duties imposed Un him by the Constitution and laws of Louisiana, while discharging and exercising the functions of said office of Governor, and in violation of the Cons|i|ution mnd laws of the State of Louisiana, and nn official oath as Governor of the State of Louisiana, since and subsequent to the 14th day of April, 1875, been guilty of many and divers high crimes and misdemeanors in office against the laws, the Constitution and the people of the State of Louisiana. Hesolvei by the House of Iiepreseniatices of the State of Louisiana, That William P. Kellogg, Acting Governor of the State of Louisiana, be and is hereby impeached for high crimes and misdemeanors in office, committed against the Constitution and laws of the State of Louisiana. Resolved by the House of Representatives of the State of Louisiana, That a committee of the members of the House be appointed by the Speaker to go to the Senate of tile State of Lou isiana, and at the bar thereof impeach William P. Kellogg of high crimes and misdemeanors in office, committed since April 14, 1875, and acquaint the Senate that the House of Repre seutativ.s will in due time exhibit particular articles of impeachment against him, and that the committee demand that the Renate take order for the appearance of said William F. Kel logg to auswer to said impeachment. Resolved, That a committee of five be appoint ed by the Speaker tnereof to prepare and pre sent for the consideration of the Hou-e articles of impeachment against William Pitt Kellogg, acting Governor of the State of Louisiana, for high crimes and misdemeanors in office, and that they be»aulhorized and empowered to send for portons and papers in furtherance of their inves tigations.

New Orleans, Feb. 26,1876. To the Honorable the Speaker and Members of the House of Represents'ives : Just previous to the adjournment of the House yesterdav the undersigned were designated by the Speaker as members of a committee appoint ed in pursuance of the following resolution by Mr. Kidd : "I move that a committee of seven be ap pointed by tho Speaker to investigate what charges, if any there are, against W. P. Kellogg, deminding his impeachment, and that they re port as early as practicable." Late last evening we were informed that the committee would meet at 9% o'clock this morn ing sharp In the mean'.ime the Governor ad dressed to the committe in writing the followicg request : I respectfully request to be informed when your committee proposes to enter upon this in ve'stigation, in order that I may appear in person or by counsel, as provided by section 1739, Re vised btatutes. Very respectfully, your obedient sevrant, W. P. Kellogg. The majority of the committee refused to accede to this request. As members of the committee we demanded an ODportnnity to investigate the charges made. This has been denied us. The manner in which the resolution for the appoint ment of the committee was sprung yesterday in the House and forced through without the requi site suspension of the rules, and all the proceed ings had thereunder appear to us altogether un justifiable and as in-'mating a determination on the part of the majority, without regard to pre cedent, parliamentary law or Constitution of the State, or common justice, to attempt to inaugu ate revolution in order to subvert government. The resolution adopted on yesterday calls for an investigation as to the charges against W. P. Kellogg, but no investigation has been had; not one word of testimony of any kind whatever has been adduced. Nevertheless the committee have determined by a majority to make a report to the House, -charging the Governor with high crim- s aDd misdemeanors in office, and asking for the appointment of a committee to report him to the Senate for trial. In the opinion of tho un dersigned such haste is unbecoming the dignity of this House and operates injustice to the ac cused. We therefore protest against the action of the committee and demand of the House what the committee have denied us, the right to hear the witnesses and evidence on which so grave charges are based, before they shall take any action on the report presented by a majority of the committee.

REOPENING OF A FAMOUS SUMMER RESORT. It has often been the cause of remark among visitors froô a distance to the Golf Btates, that the residents -in this section of the country should And it necessary te| visit the North in eearch of watering places and summer resorts while there were so many splendid localities in the immediate vicinity of their homes that only require a little attention, and a comparatively small ou lay, to make them equal to any of the most popular seaside resorts of the distant North With the Gulf of Mexico and Lake Pontchar train washing the shores of five Southern States, and offering the most flittering inducements to enterpr sing men to build up a Southern summer resort, our people have been compelled|to seek elsewhere for pleasure and health during the tedium of the summer months. The only place that has ever made any pretensions to supply the want was the famous old Point Clear Hotel, which burned down many years ago. This was at one time a very popular watering place, and was frequented by large numbers of visitors from all parts of the country every summer. It not only affords splendid surf-bathing equal to the favorite seaside places of the North, but it has the advantage or being only a few hours' run from several large i-ou'hern cities, thus avoiding the great inconvenience of long travel which frequently mars the p ensure of a trip to the North from our own far 8-mh. The troubles of war, and the consequent hard times and gen eral disarrangement, prevented the rebuilding of the hotel, and the place haH been for many years sadly neglected. We are glad to learn, however, that, lately, a magnificent hotel has been erected at that piace, and that every effort has been made to make it worthy of the patronage of the public. The building is 385 feet long and contains 160 rooms, it has attached toil all the buildings necessary to provide comfort and pleasure for guests, such as billiard room, pistol galleries, livery stables and Datn-hoiues. A regular band of music has been engaged at the entire summer, and will provide all the music needed for balls, picnics and excursions, whenever it is the desire of the guests to have their services. The surf bathing at this point is excelled by none any where in the country, and it is the determination of the management to spare no trouble or ex pense to cater successfully to the pleasure of visitors, and to make their place in every re spect a first class summer resort. Boats wiil run daily between Mobile and tho hotel, and will make the run in one hour and a half, thus making the trip from New Orleans of but small moment, either in the time involved or hu expense necessary to its accomplishment, the hotel is situated on a point, one side of which is lapped by ihe waters of Mobile Bay, and the surf of the Gulf of Mexico dashes and splashes merrii and invitingly upon the other; ail the favorite fish of our Southern waters are to ll as no ___ ________________________ __ _____ „ is found here in abundance, and there's life and ^ strength in the bracing salt sea air and the in fl vigorating waters of the Gulf both of which com bine their advantages for the summer residence on Point Clear, Capt.

He announces that on the 1st of June he will be prepared to leceive guests—everyihing will be readiness, tbe hotel and buildings, and all the furniture and accessories new and elegant. We wish the Captaia every success, and take pleasure in heartily recommending his hotel to the generous patn.nage of the public, assured that they will find the place equal to any they hav eve- visited. the the to of Treasurer New is evidently not very wel verged in " addition, division and silence," as we see that since he has been in office he has drawn $3800 cf his salary, and paid into the Treasury $3000 to make good the sum3 of money which have mysteriously disappeared.

Col. Robb, of the late Texas Border Investi gating Commission, has been summoned to give information to the committee. Washington, Feb. 26 —The Republican Sena tors c«*curred yesterday over the Dill to restore persons stricken from the pension rolls for dis loyalty. The caucus decided as the bill allows the pâyment of arrearages for fourteen or fifteen years, amounting to several million dollars, it ought not to pass in the present condition of the Treasury. Washington, Feb. 26.— The departure of the steamer Colon, with mails for Central American and Central Pacific por.s, has been postponed to March 2. It is understood the Republican caucus oppo sition to the bill restoring Southern pen Toners to the rolls is confined to that section which pro vides for arrearages. Hon. Frod.

The Links in the "Devil's Chain" being the harrowing inci dents that mark the successive p h ases in the drunkard's downward career. The work, though markedly inferior to its predecessor, will doubtless attract much attention, and as the author says in his preface: " It is a greet thing done if we can get people to think [ about the reality, bearings and size of an eviL * * * I have, therefore, tried to bring into one small piotuie a somewhat comprehensive view of these evils."

If 1 I . 1 1. a ... . . m a a. -a February 23, at Minerva Hail, and having set» in the columns of tho mormug Democrat, Feb ruary 24, headed Auxiliary Ciuh, " A large and enthusiastic meeting of the voters of the Second Ward for the purp.se of arranging a Democratic and Conservative club," we, as citizens of tbe Second Ward, denounce that meeting as not ft I Democrat and Conservative meeting. Iu the first place the Democratic party do not keep closed doors, becoudly, the Democratic party do not issue private postal cards. Thirdly, said party do not have door-keepers to prevent citizens to aud from entering ana voting for the officers they wish. If we understand the meaning of Democracy, it means a government by the people, a form of .. D „. government in which the supreme power *- -----* lodged in the hands of the people, collectively and not privately, or in which the people exercise the powers of legislation; and such was not tho case of the little ring meeting of February 23, st Minerva Hall. In presence of over one hundred citizens, Mr. Louis Sincer, a member o( our State Central Committee, elected by the people in open meet .1 i - g, from the Second'Ward, was refused adn^t 1 tance ; and, also, Mr. R. H. Wilile, a member of our Parish Committee, elected by our peqple in open meeting, was refused admittance on the grounds that it was a private meeting, and tuat they (that ring) had to pay for the hail, and that after the offiers were elected, they (that riog) would advertise and all parties could join the club. We also notice in their resolutions, that an invitation is now extended to all citizens of tho Second Ward, without distinction, who ad« here to the princ.pjea of the Democrat ic-Con» servative party. We don't think it Démocrate to have officers of the Department of Improvements as doorkeepers, also street gangs marched up by their foremen for the purpose of carrying out their pirns. We think it an outrage, although some of our good citizens were «inveigled to the meoting through: private printed invitations, and went there more through curiosity. It was also resolved tha£ the Parish Commit fee be and is hereby earnestly requested to fix a uniform day and hour in reorganizing the cen tral clubs. We can not see where the Parish Com mittee could entertain any resolutions from such a burlesque club, where one of their body (Parish Committee), representing this, the Second Ward, was refused admittance, which I hope wiil be denounced by him before said Parish Com mittee. The resolution also states that the object for calling the reorganization was to prevem any at , c . - , » ----- a . nd t0 the prejudice of the business portion «if tempt of any person to vote in other wards than his own.gBut the meeting consisted of a great many from other wards now employed by the city. It was also resolved that any reorganization of the central clubs prior to the month of May negrt would be, in the opinion of that club, prematMte community, whose engagements at the pres ent would not permit them that time to (Imrnfo 4 a mosrl mbi. 1 . - ___a____ _ _ waiting untü'the month ôf D Jfiay! catche « the worm, and we don't devote to ward politics which their importance demands. We wonld state that all good Democrats and business men are always prepared to lend M help ing hand to assist i'< restoring our State at any moment when called upon, fl'he Dsmooratio party of the Second Ward are always prepared to do good. We think there is somas" ' * m in Ihe early bird .. ----desire to allow the enemy one minute to fortify themselvee. Re organize immedia.ely—the Radical part/ is always organized. It is a wa' ning to the the voters of the Second Ward. The absurd idea of refusing over one hundred citizens from participating in a ward meeting ! If they mean right, why exclude the known emocrats. We say fair play to all— bone, sinew or wealth, or the poor laboring man—open yonr doors ; name your club ; do as Dem worsts gen erally do ; this is a poor man's fight as well as rich ; Democracy maxes no distinctions, we want no splits in our party.
