The standard remedies for all diseases of the lungs are Schbncr'b Pulmonic Syrup, Schknck's Sek Weed Tonic, and Schenck s Mandrake Pi li,,s and if taken before the lungs are destroyed, a speedy cure is iffcted. To these three medicines Dr. J. H. Schenk, of Philadelphia, owes his unrivalled gucess in the treatment of pulmonary disease. The Pulmonic Syrup ripens the morbid matters in the lungs; nature throws it off by easy expect oration, for when the phlegm or matter is ripe a slight cough will throw it iff, the patient has rest and the lungs begin to heal. To enable the pulmonic syrup to do this. Schenk's Sea Weed Tonic must be freely used to cleanse the stomach and liver. Schenck'8 Man drake Pills act on the liver, removing all obstruc tions, relax the j bladder, the bile starts freely and the liver is soon recieved. Schenck's Sea Weed Tonic is a gentle Btimulant n d alterative: the alkali of which it is composed mixes with me rood una prevents sonring, it as siHts the dilution by toninfr uj the stomach to healthy condition, so that toe fond and tbe i'ul monic Syrnp will make good blood; then the lun heal, and the patient will surely get well if care taken to prevent fresh cold.

Ten to fifteen thousands citizens went into Lafayette square and the following was adopted: ve, citizens ot isew Urleans, in mass meeting assembled, representine, as we firmly believe, the sentiments of a large majority of the people of Louisiana: pro claiming anew our devotion to the consti tution of the United States and unquali- nea acceptances all amendments thereto: asserting that iu loyalty to our reestablish ed union and id tone of national patriotism we ao not yield to the people oi any sec tion of our common country, as we stand ready to prove by any test; declaring our earnest desire to obliterate the feeliDgs of sectional bitterness which were left as the result of the late unharpy war; and to reunite the whole people nf the United Mates in one common bond of brother hood; equally aesirous cf breaking down the barries of prejudice and distrust which desiemng political tricksters have lroui bae motives reared between the white and colored citizens of the itate and to reestablish relations of the two races upon a basis of just laws, equal rights, common protection and harmonious and kindly sentiments towards each other; profoundly impressed with the gravity oi the crisis through which our state is pas sing, and feeling that we should publicly proclaim our sentiments touching the same, do hereby adopt the lollowlng reso lutions: First, That the right of local self gov erument is the fundamental principle of our liepublican system; that it is the in alienable privilege of every state in thi union, deprived or which the state ceases to exist as such in a constitutional sense and becomes a mere province of an alien gov eminent. Second. That for four years the people of Louisiaua have lived under a usurping government never elected by the people and never voluntarily acquiesced in, which was established originally r.nd maintained throughout its career, ty the military power ot the federal government, and dif fering iroui a direct military government only in name; and the particulars ot its creater extravagance and unbridled cor ruption, and the utter unfitness of the per sons entrusted with its administration its Notwithstanding his extreme penurious neBS, he did not hesitate to spend money freely for his own enjoyment He kept a yacht, fast horses, and dogs, and was a generous liver. These char acteristics brought him into collision with his partners and he received their remonstrances in anything but a friendly spirit. The breach thus formed was con tinually widening until, four years ago, ou the occasion of the annual settlement. there was an open rupture, caused by a demand that Orville should change his course or leave the firm. This was set tled, however, at the time, but without producing any alteration in the relations of the members of the concern. Orville constantly grew more insolent and inde pendent, and. finally, about four weeks ago, forbearance ceased to be a virtue and he was informed that his connection must end without further delay. Heretofore his uncles,pre8uming on their relationship, had taken upon themselves the duty of chiding him, which produced a feeling of intense bitterness against them in his breast, but now Dean added the weight of kis outspoken determination to theirs and Orville saw he must go. He made a stubborn resistance, however, but one day last week he went to Dean and, begging his pardon for any thing offensive he might have said to him m the past, told him he considered him his best friend and if he wished to buy out his interest he might have it at a lair price but he would not sell to his uncles on any terms. Dean to'.d him to name his own price. He said he would take $200,000, but would require that the papers Bliould be drawn by his own lawyers. Deau replied that he did uot care what lawyer drew up the papers. so long as he was respectable; all he want ed was a receipt for the money which he would pay over. Ihis was the understand ing arrived at, and Orville went to Johu L butherland, 55 all street, his attorney, and employed him to draw up the papers. Sutherland said, yesterday, they were all ready, and were to be signed, by appoint ment, at 11. 1 he money consideration, all in cash, had been provided, and a happy ending to the long-continued troubles of the concern was promised. I he reporters, in a desire to obtain par ticulars that would enable them to account for the presence of tho pistols and knife, carrried the news of the terrible affair to the relatives, who nearly all resided out of town, aud who hurriedly came to the city. Mrs. Jewett, aged 85 years, mother of Or ville, was informed of the tragedy while at her nephew's, in Brooklyn, and immedi ately went to the hosptial where her son was dying, and as soon as he saw her bend ing over him, he breathed forth the woids 'orod bless you. New igrk, Atnl6, A, M. ihe rave ning Post reporter visited Mr.' Dean, at his residence, to-day, but was unable to gain any information about yesterday's explo sion. Mr. Dean is better, and talks clearly. Mrs. Dean knew nothing of the New York or is in any way connected with his presence here. As I said yesterday, I consider him to be simply an utterly broken man. The World supplements thisdepatch by saying there is a theory connected with Hall's disappearance, which, on a close examination of the facts, seems to cover all the circumstances of this otherwise incom prehensible affair. It appears that Hall had an insurance of some $60,000 ou his life. To his friend Douglas Taylor he said, only a few weeks before his flight; 'My family would be better off if 1 were dead " And there is much to prove that he meant to convey the belief that he met his death that Friday night after he left his office, H0WL1NBS OF THE LOUISIANA CARPET-BAGGERS, Packard Publishes an Insulting Letter to R.

The Times to morrow will publish from authentic sources the true story of the terrible explosion, revealing tbat a diabolical crime was per petrated. Orvil D. Jewett was admitted to the firm, of which his father, when alive, was a member, six or seven years ago, simply because of that relationship. He has been somewhat wild and paid little attention to the busiucss, which seems not to have been to his taste. He has been absent last winter yachting at Bermuda, and on bis return recently expressed a de sire to withdraw from the firm. His part ners did not wish to make any change in the firm and opposed his retiring, but be per sisted iu the determination and finally be came so disagreeable that they conceded his request and agreed to pay him $200,000 tor bis interest, ine necessary papers were drawn up and were to have been Bigned to-day. Young Jewett, probably crazed with liquor, came into the office with a hand crenade, a pistol and a dirk Some angry words passed and he pulled the erenade from his pocket and threw it on the floor. The explosion followed. The uncle was killed and his own legs broken and he received thiee terrible wounds in the abdomen. He then drew a pistol and attempted to shoot himself through the head, but the aim was ineffective. He died this morning in the hospital. Dean, who was injured by the explosion, is under stood not to be in a dangerous condition. THE LATEST. New York, April 6. The tragedy in the office ot Messrs. Jewett, yesterday, is an absorbing topic of conversation to-day. The thousands of people who cross every morning from Brooklyn to New York, by iVin Vnltnn ferrv. all turn this morning into Burling slip, and linger for a while at Front street, looking up to tne second noor, at the windows of the office in which the calamity occurred. The building is closed. and the police, 60 ncedtul yesterday to keep tbe crowd from pressing in. have been withdrawn. In addition to the story credited to the Times, this morning, that newspaper also publishes the following: "All the members of the firm bear the highest Dossible reputation, not only for probity but for amiability of character and charitableness, except Orville D., who was of a close, surly disposition, Orville's or iginal interest was f 150,000- tie never got along very well with his uncles.

Broadford and along tbe line first, which is the legal government enti tied to recognize; second, which is the legal judiciary; third, docs domestic vio lence and insurrection prevail within the meaning of Section 4, Article 4, of the Constitution ot the United States? On the first of these points the instructions say: ine service desired ot na en trusted to this Commission does not include any examination ioto or report upon the facts of the recent state election, and of the canvass of lha votes at that eleetiiu. This prohibits the commission from all in quiry as to who are entitled to the offices of governor and lieutenant governor by virtue of the late election and a canvass of the votes by the general assembly, and also as to who were dieted to the other uip;tted state fTioi-s. It is my desire that a search ing ats i sa'iMa.'tory investigation should be ni:Je up. n this important point. Piickyrd closes his letter as follows: I earnestly ur-c that the investigation by the commission be not confined to the narrow inquiry of how Nicholls can Le sustained and Packard starved to death for lack of money to support his gnvern ment. If the inquiry be thus restricted, a grave wrjng will be doi'e to those by whom I was called to the executive chair and whose votes cast,often at the peril of their lives, have elevated your excellency to the presidency of the American people. In their name and on their behalf I ask tbat the instruction given to the commission may be so amended and enlarged that the right can be ascertained and that the gov ernment thus found to be Republican in form and to have been chosen by a tna joiity of the people, according to the legal methods sanctioned by the constitution and laws, may Le recognized and sustaiued.'' S. B. Packard. the- howl op Packard's congo senate. New1 Orleans, April 5. Packard's Senate adopted a series of resolutions de nouncing the pledges of Stanley Matthews and Charles Foster for the withdrawal of troops as a corrupt and dishonorable bargain; say they are slow to believe Pres ident Hayes a party to such bargain; call on the Presideut to furnish the assistance necessary to protect against domestic vio lence and put down the Nicholls insurrec tion: assert tbat the legality of Packard's election cannot be questioned by anyone who does not question the title of Presi dent Hayesi that both titles are the same; recommend f ackard to organize the mill ita in every parish to meet any emergeny which may arise in the future; if the Presi dent fails in his duties, which we do not believe ho will do, let the responsibility rest where it belongs, In conclusion, the resolution expresses unabated confidence in the patriotism, firmness, wisdom and forbearance ot Gov. Packard. TheCommisioners have arrived at the St. Charles Hotel, their office io a few days and never expect to ask the suffrages of the people again. That the city needs a market square is true; but for it to involve itself in debt to the amount of even four thousand dol lars for such an improvement when it owns a lot in every respect superior to the one projected and said lot lying idle would be, to say the least, an act of inbecility. The lot north of the engine house, which belongs to the city, is larger, the locality better, because it is not near any saloon, and because it will take the coal haulers away from the principal thoroughfares; and. above all, it will cost nothing, Every one knows that the foot of Lyude street,the present market square, is unsafe for ladies to travel, in conse quence of the Coaltown roughs who make that their headquarters; and if the market is placed where those petitioners wish it, the corners of Salter and Main, and Salter and Wells streets will soon become a terror to puaceable citizens. As stated above, tho engine house square would bo out of the way and have the ad vantage over tho other places of not being surrounded by saloons. Several good busi ness mens' names are on the petition, but it is noticeable ithat they are all men around those corners who are laboring under the mistaken idea that they will be Denentea- Opening'. On Monday next. April 9th. the new European Restaurant, Main street, near Rodman avenue, will be opened to the pub lic. Mr. Epp, the proprietor, has been to a heavy outlay in preparing the new place for public favor, and will be assisted by Y ill Hawthorne, who formerly kept a res taurant here, and was known in the three cities as the caterer. The room is large, and has been elegantly frescoed and paint ed and a kitchen built in the rear entirely separate from the dining hall. This alone is a feature to commend it In addition to tbe regular dining hall, a room in the rear of the store has been elegantlv furnished. and will be reserved for private parties, la dies and children. The new proprietors will, at all times, keep the bill of fare up to the best the market affords, and care will be taken in the eudeavor to suit all tastes. This is something Moline has long felt the need of. 8nd in his new enterprise Mr. Epp will undoubtedly receive a liberal support. One of our most obliging citizens, and uni versally liked, be is bound to succeed, and it will be no fault of his if the new Euro pean Restaurant is not at all times first- class in every respect.
