The commission was called to order again
at 2:10 o'clock, and was addressed on behalf
of the Democrats by Senator Kelly, Repre
sentative Jenks, and Judge Hoadly,

because it was wtthout judicial power,
said without the exercise of judicial power
you can not deprive Hideo andrlendricksof

Senator Mitchell and Mr. Lawrence
sented objections on oenaii oi the ttepubl
cans, arguing tnat mere was no law
Oregon authorizing the Governor to
a minority candidate elected, and that
maior nart of electors Dresent is a nnornm.
Stanley Matthews opened the argument
when the Commission met on February
and spoke for nearly two hours in opposi
tion to the Cronin certificate. He said
the law of Oregon required that the votes
Electors should be given, received, returned
and canvassed, the same as for members
Congress; and in the caseof members
Congress, it was made the duty of the Secre
tary of State to canvass the votes,
and there the statutory directions
end. The statute in relation to Elec
tors further provided that the Secretary
of State should certify two lists, showing
who had received the highest number
votes, and there the canvass ended. The
Constitution and law stamped that record
the legal and constitutional result of the
election. The certificate of the Governor
was sought to be intruded here aa a substi
tute for the canvass. It was signed by the
Secretary of State simply as an attesting
witness, and not as a canvasser of
votes. The eertincate oi tne uovernor
of Oregon did not conform to the statues
of the United States or of Oregon.
Mr. Matthews combatted the proposition
that the ineligibility of Watt made a non-
election, or that the votes cast tor an ineli
gible candidate were void. He also con
tended mat tne r.ngnsu aecisiona, wnica
declared the candidate who was eligible
bnt received a less number of votes
than his ineligible opponent elected, had
not been adopted as the American rule,
wnicn was that, when sucn a case occurred,
neither was entitled to the office.
When Mr. Matthews concluded, inquiry
waa made as to whether tne rostmaster
General was present in response to the sum
mons, with papers and records regarding
Watts. Mr. Tyner was not in the Court
room, so a recess was taken until a quarter
to one. The Democrats expect to prove
that Watts acted aa Postmaster on the day
he voted in the Electoral College. Com
mission took a recess. After recess, proofs
of Watts'a resignation as Postmaster were
placed before the Commission. Speech's
were made by Messrs. Evarts and Merrick,
and the Commission adjourned till neatt day.

Commission Report on Oregon.
The report in substance is as follows
The Electoral Commission havinz
certain certificates and papers purporting
be the certificates of the Electoral vote
the State of Oregon, and objections thereto,
report that it has dnly considered the same,
and has decided and does hereby decide
that the votes of W. H. Odell, J. C. Cart
wright, and J. W.' Watts, the persons named
in the certificate of the Secretary of
State of Oregon as the persons receiving
highest number of votes fer Presidential
Eiectois, are the votes provided for by

The! report further sets forth that
election of Watts by the other two members
The grounds for this decision, so far as
concern tne engiointy ot watts, are
the certificate ef the Governor so far as
same is not founded npon the action of
canvassing or returning authority, provided
for by the laws of the State, which authority,
in tne case oi vregon, is neia to oe
Secretary of State. The report
takes the ground that it is. not
sential to snow tnat an Elector
eligible on the 7th of November,
providing it be shown that he
eligible when he cast his vote in the
College, and the fact appears that
alleged ineligible Elector, Watts, was chosen
to fill a vacancy caused by his own absence
from the Electoral College, and that he
not ineligible at the time he cast his vote.
Report of the Commission to
The Electoral Commission having received
certain certificates and papers purporting
be the certificates of the Electoral votes
the State of Louisiana, and certain papers
accompany the Barae, and objections thereto,
report that it has duly considered the
and baa decided and does hereby decide,
lhat the votes of William Pitt Kellogg,
U. Brewster, A. B. Levisse, Oscar Jefi'eries,
Peter Joseph, J. H. Birch, L. A. Sheldon,
and Morris Marks named in the certificate
of William P. Kellogg, Governor of
State, (which votes are certified to by
persons as it appeara by the certificates
submitted to the Commission
aforesaid and marked No,
by said ' Commission, and here
with returned,) are votes provided for by
the Constitution of the United States, and
that the same are lawfully to be counted as
therein certified, namely, eight votes for
Rutherford B. Hayes, of the State of Ohio,
for President, and eight votes for Wm. A.
Wheeler, of the State of New York, for Vice
President. The Commission also decides and reports
that the eight persons first before named are
duly appoited electors in and by the said
State of Louisiana.
The ground of this decision, stated briefly,
is substantially as follows :
That it is not proper to go into evidence
aliunde as to papers opened by the Presi
dent ox tne senate, in tne presence oi toe
two bouses, to prove that other persons
than those regularly certified by the Gov
ernor of the estate of. .Louisiana in ana ac
cording to the determination and declara
tion oi their appointment, in outer woros,
to go oenino tne eertincate oi tne uovernor,
so far as it is founded upon the action oi
the Returning Board.
The report also states that the Commission
could not receive any evidence to show that
anv Elector was ineligible on the 7th of
November, the day of the election, on the
ground thatit was not essential to show
tnat an JMector waseiigioie on tnu uay, ao
long as he was eligible when he cast his vote
the Electoral Colleee. and the fact
appears that the alleged ineligible Electors,
Brewster and Levisee, were cho: en to fill
the vacancies caused by their own absence
from the college, and there was no allegation
of ineligibility at the time they cast

A Hawk Among Hens. History of a Picture.
Two of the most celebrated artists the
world has ever known dwelt in the same
city. One delighted in delineating beauty
in all its graces of tint, form, and motion.
His portraits were instinct with the charm
of physical vigor. The graceful, half-volup-tnous
outline of form and feature harmo
nized with delicately blended tints. On his
canvas, the homeliest faces had an almost
irresistible charm. - The other found pleas
ure only in depicting weird and gloomy sub
jects. Above all, did he excel in painting
tne portraits ot the dying, xne agonizing
death-throe, the ghastly face and form, were
all deDicted with marvelous fidelity. There
existed between these artists the most in
tense diBlike. At length this dislike cul
minated. The beautv-loving artist had been
engaged in painting the portrait of beau
tiful woman. Connoisseurs pronounced it
the most wonderful piece of art that had
ever been produced. His brother artist was
iealnua of his fame, and eoneht revenge.
Rv bribine the keeper of the studio he
gained access to the picture each night At
first he was content to only deaden the bril
liancy of the complexion and eyes, efface
the bloom from cheek and lip, and paint a
shadow on either cheek. Later, his strokes
rrrw bolder and freer, and one morning tne
rtiat awoke to find the entire outline of
the portrait changed. He coma scarcely
recoenize in the emaciated form and hag
gard countenance tne glowing mju;epuuu
Ka had embodied. The pallid face and ex
pressionless eyes he had attributed to a lac a:
nf rannineness in his materials : but when
the outlines were changed he suspected the
cause and indignantly dismissed the keeper.
What the revengelul artist marren oy a iew

no less than the human form divine; Dis
ease, the dreaded artist who revels among

and Carelessness, the keeper to whom
Health often intrusts his portraits. And is
it not the beauty of woman, the most ad
mired of all the works which adorn the
studio of Health, that Disease oftenest seek
to mar? The slightest stroke oi his Drusn
upon the delicate organization leaves an

The popularity of Messrs. James B. Kirk fc
Co.'b soaps,manufactured inChicago.is shown
by the unprecedented sale wnichtneir goods
have reached during the year 1876. This by far
is the largest soap manufacturing concern in
the United States, producing and selling in
all parts of this country, from the Red River
of the North to New Orleans, and from Port
land, Me.,to 8an Francisco, 25,000,000 pounds
annually. JNo so-called greases enter into
these soaoa. Onlv Dure refined tallow and
vegetable oils are used, containing no adul

liable. This is why their soaps are so popular
witn all good and economical nouseaeepers.
