What gold can result froth the investi

cuase" this point which is foretbly :.sta
ted in the following extract from the
Baltimore Sun : "The very fact that
Mr. Hayes cannot, as we believe, be law
fully disturbed in his offico, and that
it would be unwise to attempt to dis
tnrb him, makes it only more important
that the umenus by which he was induct.
ed inso the presidency-the frauds. by
which the office was given laim-should
be thoroughly exposed. The disgrace
which will follow, and which will inuvii
tably attach to every man who had part
or lot in these frauds, or who h:*s con
sciously or knowiiglyleen benefitted by
them, will morally speaking, be worth
all the trouble of investigation, if Con
gress can spare the time for it. Even if
Congress should.so far neglect its duty,
which we will not anticipate, as to ad
jouru without making proper provision
by legislation or by the submission of a
goatigonuta. g syt, if n'? , g i gyAry
for preventing and determining future
controverisies and difficulties in regard
to counting theuelectoral yotes of the
States and ascortnaiing the result, the
tmere exposure e ott3j thtauds which at
tended the last election will have a
wholesome effect in detering from any
attempt at their repetition. Tihe pow.
ers and duties of.the two hoauses of CVu
gress and of the president ot the Senate
in regard to the returns ought to be so
clearly distinguished and defined by
law as to leave no room for future con
troversy upon these points. How far it
is necessarry or wise to clothe any offi
cer, or any tribunal, outside of the States
themselves, with power to 'go behind re.
turns,' and decide upon grounds and tes
tiumony dehors, or, to use Justice Bradley's
now famous word, 'aliunde the returns,'
is a separate and independent question
in regard to which there is a great deal
to be said both ways. Meantime, how
ever, as we have said. investigation,
properly conducted can do no harm. If
there is a disposition in both parties,
among Republicans as well as Demo
crate, to order such investigation, so
much the better. The investigation will
be less partisan in its character. No
doubt much of the testimony will be that
oi accomplices and participants in the
frauds -prompted to their disclosures
by disppointment and chagrin at not ob
tainiug preferment from the present ad
ministration. Such is usually the na
ture of the testimony in such cases of
conspiracy. The public will know how
to make due allowance for the motive of
the witnesses, and well weigh their. teas
mony for what it is intrinsically worth.

sWe oohy :
Sr4st or LoUISIANA, EXECUTiLVE DP'T.
New Orleans, Oct.e16, 1876.
To the lion. R. C. McCormick, Secretary
National Republican Ceioumitee,
MWn Dear Sir-I wrote you last week
regarding the importance ofgiving us
some assistance both in money and
speakers. A few thousand dollars in ad
dition to what we can raise here (and we
are striving our utmost in this regard)
judiciously used eight or ten days before
the election, in my judgment will enable
us to render the carrying of.this state al
most certain. If we had eight or ten
thousand dollars it would make a differ
ence of bive or six the thousand votes. To
understand this, you must remember that
in this state there are few. telegraphs
and fewer railroads, and half adozen'mon
Isent out at the proper time audlin the
proper way to certain parishes, would
bring out votes which otherwise would
never be cast.
It seems to me that as far'n as the North
is concerned, the battle ground is con
finned to the states of Califorr in, Connec
tieut, Indianna. New Jersey, New York
and Oregon, and in thit South to South
Carolina, Florida and Louisiana. I have
so faith that any other southern state
can be carried for the republican party.
These umay be saved. It seems to me that
SCaliforniia, Lonidiana, South Carolina,
Florida and New Jersey, or Connecticut,
SLouisiana, South Carolina and New Jer
sey, are essential to thIe success of the
ticket, unless you are certain of New
sYork. I assume in these calculations
that Wisconsin may be classed as safe for
SHayes. I; appears to me from every
I .point of view, true policy to direct every
- energy to carry South Carolina, Florida
u and this State.
f I wish you would lay this matter be
Sfore Mr. Chandler and your committee. I
- wish also you would write me conifidenti
Silly it you agree with me :hat it is ofvery
I great importance that the electoral vote
Sof Louisiana % secured- to say nothing
bof the two senators. We had assurances
Stlhat Grierson's Cavalry (colored) would
Sbe sent into this state. If we could get
- two or three companies of this cavalhy
and distribute them over the disturbed
parishes in North Lonisianna, this in ad
f dition to the other help I haveo request
ed, wou aid remove the'question of our car
f rying the state beyond the field of porad
I venture.. Verytruly, yours,
SV. P. KELLOGG.

WVAsiuxGTO, May 21.--There is no dis
guising the fact that Secretary Sherman
is badly trightened. He has.o employed
Shellabarger aaWilson as his attor
neys, and they have searched the offices
of Newspaper Row trying to find out
what the Democrats have against him.
The case against Sherman must be strong,
for Clarkson N. Potter, who has the rep
utation of being a very conservative law
Ser, obtained a large number of support
ers upon the Democratic side when men
there were wavering, by giving personal
assurances that he knew in advance evi
dence enough to impeach Sherman. Mc
Mahon, of Ohio, of the committee, is
credited with a much stronger statement.
He said to a Democratic friend to-day
that there was evidence enough already
gathered to warrant the statement that
John Shernuan will be inside ofa peniten
tiary within sixty days. But rich offi
cials of the John Sherman pattern, if con
victed of murder, could hardly be rail
roaderi off in that style. All of the stong
talk made in private and not intended
for publication foreshadows a strong case

This act must remain a marvel of mys
tery. By the human law crime consists
in intention. Criminal intent is often,
inferred from some known motive. All'
fact and phylosophy prove that without
some motive men do not commit crimes.
Sometimes habitual depravity supplice
a motive in the love of crimes. But
this assassin is himself a child. He can
not have learned to love crime from bit
terness, enmity, illfortmo in thie world,
wrongs or rough usago that lead men to
harbor revenge against thle h tman race.
