WHAT HAS BEEM FROVED SO FAR BY THE POTTER COUMITTIE. ' From the WasblOfton Post.) The l'ottei committee have proved beyond suocesstul rebuttal things be lieved to be true, bat not absolutely provoo to be true before, to-wit: That tbo electoral votes of Florid and Louisiana, which were given to Hayes, belonged to Tilden. Leaving out oi consideration the State of Florida, which no honest roan will. deny to have been stolen, we will take up Louisiana. As to this Stato the Potter Committee has clearly proved : 1. That a conspiracy was entered into by certain Republican leaders, the objeot being to hold no election in East Feliciana, Grant and other par ishes. 2. That the fact that no Republi can votes were cast in East Feliciana was not due to intimidation, as alleged, but was owing to Anderson's advice to the Republican leuders not to vote, as it would hare a better effect than all the affidavits that could be produced. 3. That for a period of two days after the election the Republican lead ers admitted that Tilden and Nichols had carried the State by a heavy ma jority. 4. That when it became evident tbrt the election of Hayes depended upon tbo result of the state, deliberate preparation were made lor the pur pose ot defeating the will of the peo ple as expressed at the polls. 5. That iu pursuance ot this plan, protests, forged and altered to suit the occasion, were made far the parishes of East and West Feliciana, whereby a Democratic majority ot over 2,800 was changed to a Republican majority of 500. 6. That the supervisors of the above named parishes were preveoted by promises of reward made by John Sherman and others from exposing such forgeries. 7. That on the 26th day of Nov., when the Returning Board proceeded to sum up the result ot their labors; it was discovered that while Packard and n Republican Legislature were elected, Hayes was defeated. 8. That after the above date, and in erder to secure tho electoral votes for Hayes, forged protests weie made for Riohland and other puritiheH so changed as to increase the Republican vote. 9. That affidavits bearing fictitious names, and the names ot deud iih:ii, wore manufactured in the custom house, and upon such uffiduviis vari ous Democratic polls were ihrowu out 10. Thatthe act above recited were known to some of the viuitiug sintt- men and leceived their approval. 11. That the electoral vole of the State, as counted before the two houses of Congress, was a forgery. 12. That John Sherman, now Sec retary ot the Treasury, aud at the time the personal representative of Mr Hayes, was guilty of subornation of perjury. 13 That the leading parties neces sary to a completion of the fraud were promised by him protection and re ward. 14. That the fraudulent President in fulfillment of Sherman's and Moves' promises, has rewarded with office every scoundrel connected with the great crime in both Florida and Lou- iaiana. 15. That Stanley Matthews, a Re publican Senator from Ohio, and Jus tice Uarlin, a Judge ot the Supreme Court, bad guilty knowledge of the fraudulent transactions by which the ToU of Louisiana vis stolen, and personally interested themselves to re ward and protect tbe criminal.'. 16. That Secretary Morton and General Garfield, both Bember of tbe Electoral Commisaion, knew when they voted te count tbe vote of Lou isiana for Hare that it was both fraud ulent and a for eery. 17. That Seaator Kellogg, who as-1 slated at tbe forgery of the Louisiana returns, has since keen guilty of seoret in the witoesses. 18. That not one ot tbe criminals who assisted to perpetrate lb colossal crime of the age bat been puoisneu ; but that all but two numbering over 100 huve been provided with offioe by Mr. H.ves dirtot order or reauest, add ia aokao coses by and through bis continued and persistent interference. With few exceptions these fact are proved, exclusive of the testimony of either Anderson or Weber, notwith standing tbat the committee baa only fairly entered upon its task. Th. AdYiinlitlteei ot'IewapaBer AdreralMlnff. Messrs. Ivison, Blakeman, Taylor & Co., school book publishers, say : "We bovc tried almost every sort of medum in advertising, and long ago became convinced that tbe results were largely in favor of tbe fresh and varied columns ot the nowspaper." TE8TIM0NY OP AN OLD AND WELl KNOWN FIRM. An experience ot many years has demonstrated to us tbe great value and benefit derived from the carefully pre pared and properly displayed ad vertigo moots in well-established and and in fluential newspapers. JfltiN Dunoan'8 Soxb. Sole agents for Lea ft Perrius's Worceatetahlr. Ssuce. Messrs. Isaao Smith's Son & Uo..( the well-known umbrella house, ex press themselves us follows on the val ue of newspuper advertising: "If what you have to say be strictly true, say it in a good newspaper. Its readers are intelligent, will appreciate a bargain, and of every such customer you make an advertiser. For forty seven years nine tenths of our odver tising has been done on this plan, and of the whole expenditure, all that we regret is contained in the other ter.th. At a recent convention of tho stuve manufacturers, held st Detroit, Mich., the president Baid : "If ve would make the best possible use of our money, we should patronise ably conducted and responsible newspapers. The newspa per is immeasurably the best medium pp3Q to our trade; the most liberal aud expert advertisers testify to its value, and in the employment of its columns we would find a means of es cape from wasteful, undignified and in effective methods." The Wheeler & Wilson Sewing Ma chine Company states : "In no department of business is there probably so much money wasted ns iu advettigiDg, and in no department are good judgment and experience more riquisife. Twenty-five years experi ence has clearly demonstrated the su pcrior advantages and economy of newspaper advertising over all other mediums offered for that purpose. Messrs. Lord & Taylor, the eminent dry goods house, regarding the value of newspaper advertising, ssy : "Of all the methods open to tbe merchant for advertising his business, ao experience of Dearly half a century enables us to unhesitatingly declare in fivur of the newspaper. It is, without exception, the most economical, per sisteut, painstaking and successful can vasser any business firm can secure for the purpose of bringing their goods to the attcotion of the consumer. Kl Espejo de Taos aays tbat the Pueblo Indians were greatly alarmed by the recent eclipse, regarding it a sign of the anger of God, and to ap pease bim tbey ordered al! the virgins of the Pueblo to divest themselves of every portion of their attire and in this state of nudeness tbey bad to run races two and two until the eclipse ended- - A lady writing from one of the fashionable watering places declares that "tbo low-necked dress is ao abomination into which it ia tbe dnty of tbe prcas to lock."

About Women. Miss Sue Harry Claggett, daughtor of the late editor ot the Keokuk (Ia.) Contitutiony succeeds her father in tho editorship of tbat paper. Women are becoming more numer ous among the Btock speculators of San Francisco. They are said to be. more eager and reckless than men. A book written by an America a wo man, Dr. Mary J. Stud ley, is meeting with great success in Europe. It is called "VVhat Our Girls Ought to Know." Madame D'Apparce, better known as Olive Harper, has becomo aisociate editor of The Globe, a weekly paper published at Philadelphia and Wil mington. There is an awful rumor in London tbat an audacious young besuty slip ped a piece of ice down the back oi II. R. II ., tne Prince of Wales, and made tbat amiable young man mad for once. Blanche Tucker, the Chicago music al prodigy, who weut to Europe a few years ago and destroyed ber career by getting married, is now writing unin teresting letters to tbe Chicago Time. "I'm sitting on your crinoline, mad ame," ssid an elderly man to a fash ionable iady in a street csr. "Oh, it's ot no consequence," she politely re plied. "But I think it is," answered the man, "for it hurlt me.' Old Deacon Pilkins said to himself: FslsUff auks, 'What's honor?' as though it was hard to tell. But let my wife sit behind soother woman in church and she'll tell what's on ber ia less than two minutes." Hood called tbe slamming of a door by one in a passion, a wooden tath.
