Now, under Kellogg and his reign of anarchy, New Orleans was bankrupt in public credit as well as in private means. A mixed executive of Negroes and strangers ruled the city and jobbed the public lands-a Rump Chamber, inators in New Orleans that Kellogg was not the lawful Governor of Louisiana. But how were the White citizens to use such pressure as would c republican institutions. The tyranny would be undisguised, and Louisiana governed like the Duchy of Warsaw. Yet the citizens preferred a tate House of New Orleans, the Republican ticket would be lost in Louisiana. Kellogg assured the President that, with prompt support, the vogg had promised his patron five votes out of the six possessed by Louisiana. Of the six votes only two were won for Grant.

The letter ran: Confidential.War Department, Dec. 24, 1874.

f five members. But the rump cares nothing about legal forms. Two thousand Federal soldiers occupy the posts and arsenals-why should they conform to law? In Louisiana, the votes are counted many times.. The local ballots are first sent to the Supervisors of Registration, who count them up and forward them to the Commissioners the cause of all the disorder seen about the Gulf. With critics so unfriendly to disarm, it is Kellogg's policy to seek some safe and legal ground; but where in Louisiana can intruders like Kellogg find that safe and legal ground? McEnery is not only stronger in votes but in repute and training. Many of his adherents, such as e edifice, standing at the angle of St. Louis Street and Royal Street, this State House was originally built for an hotel, and called, after the royal founder of Louisiana, the Hotel St. Louis.

Though some have slipped away theis armed followers, Vaughan rises and protests: In the name of my constituents, the people of Louisiana, and as a free-born citizen of the United States, I protest against this outrage. Turning tolls the Chamber to itself, and says:-- As legal Speaker of the House of Representatives of Louisiana, I have protested against this invasion of our hall by soldiers of the United States with drawrotested against this act. In the name of a once free people, in the name of the once free State of Louisiana, in the name of our American Union, I enter our solemn protest against all these abuses our officers are prisoners in their hands. Members of the Legislature, I solemnly believe that Louisiana has ceased to be a sovereign State; that she has no longer a republican government; and I call

he sword is king! If President Grant will leave Sheridan as free to act in Louisiana, as he left him free to act in the Blue Ridge valleys and the Peigan hunting-P. H. Sheridan.

Should it appear, Wiltz goes on to say, that this invasion has been madlation for the preservation of peace and equality of rights in the States of Louisiana, Mississippi, Arkansas; and the Executive from much of the trouble heretoforeish origin. What Sheridan asks is nothing less than that the English race in Louisiana, Mississippi, and Arkansas shall be put beyond the pale of law, and handed ov

some free countries, those who cannot read the lists and sign their names, are not allowed to vote. With an understanding of this nature, the Conservatives of. Louisiana would admit the Negro to political rights. You have no fear of educated votes? No fear at all; for educated men are never led by scalawags. Even now, th--ninety thousand against seventy-six thousand--they might elect Pinch for governor and have a strong majority in the Chambers. But we have educated negroes in Louisiana like Tom Chester, and educated Africans are no more likely to agree in politics than educated Anglo-Saxons. When a Negro learns to spell he sets up as a leader.ur. If a Negro owns a cabin and a patch of garden, he becomes Conservative and votes against the scalawags. A Conservative Negro Club exists in every parish in Louisiana; and in spite of Kellogg's promise that every Negro voting the Grant ticket shall have forty acres and a good mule, thousands of Negroes voted with us in the lat

e? repeats General Warmoth, to whom we put this question. Here! The only legal government in Louisiana resides in me. I am the governor. No man but myself has been recognised by Congress as Governor of Louisiana. Kellogg and McEnery are alike repudiated. Kellogg is Governor by grace of General Sheridan. If the Federal army left, McEnery would be Governor by force of the White League. Whenolitician, he was elected by the loyal citizens President of the Grand Army of the Republic in Louisiana. The Grand Army of the Republic is a patriotic association of men who fought in the war; trood General Warmoth turned his openings to such good account that he carried the Governorship of Louisiana under the Reconstruction Act. Of Warmoth's administration every man speaks according to hise settled country, such an act would drive a man from public life; and for the moment, even in Louisiana, Warmouth has become impossible. How long will the ban endure? You seem to think General

Fifty-six answer to their names. 0, Michael Hahn! On passing to theher they shall or shall not read the Senators in Washington a lesson by sending Pinchback up again as State Senator for Louisiana? This pale and dissipated Negro is the Hon. Caesar C.
