William Hepworth Dixon, White Conquest: Volume 2, Chapter 1: Louisiana. (search)
ey say, two years ago, on the receipt by Stephen B. Packard of a telegram in these words : Washy-General. This message was a riddle. Stephen B. Packard is a carpet-bagger, whom the President hthe Department of the Gulf. But who were Marshal Packard and General Emory to fight? No mandate o Why, then, was an inferior officer like Stephen B. Packard, urged by Attorney-General Williams, Prel McEnery could make it out. Against whom was Packard to march the Federal troops? Time solved the mystery. Stephen B. Packard got his telegram on Wednesday night. Next evening, Durell sent for hr, which the judge explained to his visitor. Packard was to ask for troops, to march on the State executive office and the legislative hall. Packard was to oust the Governor, seize the archives,ings had drawn and Durell signed his warrant, Packard left the two lawyers, ran to the barracks, goder of Durell lawful, or those proceedings of Packard just. Durell had his reward. Casey withdr

Chapter 2: reign of anarchy. On Monday morning, Packard, having the Republican writs in his hand, the Federal soldiers at his back, arrse articles read and passed. The Federal troops were handy, under Packard's orders, so that things were done as easily as they were said. PPinchback, and Pinchback was puzzled how to act even though he had Packard and a guard of honour in his ante-room. A duellist, who shoots hi cover his illegal acts. Yet Warmoth stood unmoved. Pinch ran to Packard for advice, but Packard was afraid to speak. Every lawyer in New Packard was afraid to speak. Every lawyer in New Orleans told him the warrants he was executing were illegal. No one in authority recognised Pinch; and Packard, brazen as he was, declined tPackard, brazen as he was, declined to stir one step unless supported by a message from the White House. Unable to move without Pinch, as Pinch was unable to move without PackPackard, Kellogg threw himself on his patron, President Grant, and wired this message to Attorney General Williams:-- New Orleans: Dec. 11,

in favour of his enemies, and would weaken his hold on the Federal power. In spite, therefore, of having the support of Packard, the countenance of Pinch, the salary of a Governor, and an official residence in the State House, William P. Kellogg fomen, accompanied by a menace. The crowd in Canal Street were not armed, as Kellogg and Billings knew. An hour later, Packard telegraphed to Attorney-general Williams: The people assembled at the meeting were generally unarmed. This talk arr. Provide yourselves with rations and blankets, and assemble at two o'clock, when arms and leaders will be ready. Packard, feeling uneasy about the mass meeting, had telegraphed to Jackson, in Mississippi, for troops, and early in the day a ceneral Emory interfered. At five o'clock the four companies arrived from Holly Springs, but were not placed by Emory at Packard's disposal. Longstreet held the State House, which was not attacked. By six o'clock the firing was over, and the victo

afford to wait. Of course, we suffer by delay; but we should suffer more by violence. The gentlemen sitting on these benches either own, or represent men who own, nearly all the stores and ships, the magazines, hotels, and banks, of New Orleans. Can you fancy they have any interest in disorder? If a pane of glass is broken, we have to bear the loss. The scalawags have nothing to risk except their skins, stand they are careful not to risk their skins. What can it matter to Kellogg and Packard, Antoine and Pinchback, whether property declines or not? We stake our all on peace and order; but our brethren in the northern cities have yet to understand this fact. Events are teaching them, and teaching them very fast. In crossing the French quarter we meet Senator Trimble, a Republican of local name.- A Southerner and a Republican? Well, answers Senator Trimble, like many of my old party, I am becoming rather cautious in my theories. Events are shaking my belief in platf

hese enemies of President Grant. Here is an act done in a time of peace, says Curtis, so dangerous to all civil freedom, so bold and reckless a violation of law, that men who have condoned everything else are compelled to speak out. Kellogg and Packard, Antoine. and Pinchback, are forgotten in the fury now being vented on the great criminal at the White House. Impeachment is demanded in a thousand voices. Resignation is suggested, and in fact announced. The country seems aflame, the whole rior, and some of the leading journals are demanding that Grant shall retire from the White House, leaving his powers in Wilson's hands. More than all else, Hamilton Fish declares that if the President sustains Sheridan and justifies Durell and Packard, he will resign his post as Secretary of State. This menace tells. Fish is not only the ablest man in Grant's Cabinet, but one of the ablest men in America. Bristow, Secretary of the Treasury, takes the same line as Fish. Without these gentl

Orleans. The state of things in that section is unbearable, says the President, brightening up. Here, in this cabinet, I have a list made out by General Sheridan of three thousand murders and attempts at murder in Louisiana. I have seen a later list, in which the figures count up to four thousand. Four thousand! exclaims the President. Yes, four thousand; and the list is growing every hour. Nothing is easier than to make such lists. You have only to ask for ten thousand; Packard and Pinchback will be able to supply them in a week. You think the figures incorrect? The figures may be true enough. Violence is common on the Gulf of Mexico, where a civilized race is fighting with two savage races; but the question is-how far these murders and attempts at .murder have their sources in political passion? Why, puts in Colonel Grant, there were three thousand political murders in Texas last year; three thousand murders of Negroes in a single State in one year
