The enterprising editor of tlio Phil

intention of forwarding the labors ol
the Commission has prepared an elab

President Iluyes bus had inllnite vex
ation in his efforts to get a Commission
to hold together long enough for roll
call to go to Louisiuna, to divide wttW
him the responsibility tor tlio inevita
ble withdrawal of the troops Irom that
Slate. The trouble is to gut reputable
gentlemen to accept the position for
tho reasons that commissions leave a
bud titato in the moulhs of tho people
just now, and that tho Sherman re
port made on Louisiuna to sugar-coat
the fraud by which tbe Stale was given
to Iluyes, bus fastened incffuceuhledis
graco upon its authors. It is feared
by the invited commissioners that they
will be distrusted from tho start by
both parties; that if they tell the truth
they must invoke tho assuulu oi men
dicunt organs and thut if they don't
tell the truth, they will bo execrated
by honest men. Apprehending that
the deli"ale und exhausting lubor of
muking a report in the Louisiuna cusu
may deter some good men from ac
cepting a place on the commission,
The Times comes opportunely to the
uid of all such und furnishes the follow
ing as an entirely sale report on all the
disputed points, and it is all the mure
handy as it can us well be verified and
udopteil over a dinner at Welcker's as
in New Orleans. We submit it in de
tail, so that there need be no mistakes
in tilling up skeleton work, viz :
"1. The commissioners appointed to
inquire into tlio status ol the dual
Slate governments in Louisiuna have
curelully investignted the law und the

port thut nobody outside of a lunatic
asylum or a Fuderul or Slute office

Nicholla was honestly vleeled Governor
of tlio Statu by over ten thousand ma
"2. Considerations of delicacy have
prevented tlio commission from pre
senting to the President and the coun
try their unanimous judgment as to
which electoral ticket carried the Stale
by over eight thousand majority.
"3. Governor Kellogg, candidute for
elector, and Marshal Packard, candi
date for Governor, selected tho regis
tering officers for the entire Stute; hud
registered whom they chose to huve
registered ; rejected whom they chose
io reject, and all were absolutely dis
trunchised under the law who were
not registered. They therefore decid
ed, in tho first place, who should and
who should not vole.
"4. The snid Kellogg and Packard,
candidates as before named, selected
the Supervisors of Flection in every
city and parish in the Stato.
5. Tho Kollogg Packard Supervis

officers to bold the election in every
precinct or division of every parish,
and they decided where the elections
should be held, passed upon tbe quali

pervisors, after receiving such votes
as they thought best to receive, count

ered them to the said Kellogg Pack-

"7. Thutlheufurusaid Keliogg-Pack-

fully considered by the commission,
and the unanimous conclusion has been
reached that with two Republicans to

that the aforesaid Kellogg and Pack

ters who were two to one in numbers;
that with overwhelming numerical su
periority and troops and officials
enough to protect every pill and escort

intimidation is quite too attenuated by
a large majority,

from the honest men of all parlies, by

Atler Hayes delivered his Inaugural
address, Bliiine, Cameron, Morton,
Ingersoll, und oilier, showed their
teeth uud growled. They bad expect
ed thut us Iluyes hud made great pro
fessions ot friendship for the poor ne
gro, he would take u rudieul position
towards tho South, and they were
ready, and likely hud prepared speech
es, to sustain him. To their utter
amazement and confusion, ho took tbe
very opposite course they hud nulici
puted. Tbey were thunderstruck, and
ut once counseled opposition to the
new administration. But a generul
public sentiment ut once gave vent in
lavor of the mode 'ato policy ol Mr.
Iluyes, und the Rudieul conspirators
concluded to join ill und suvu thein-si-lves
rather thun bo left out in the
cold altogether. So they suddenly
veered around and announced them
selves in favor of the now policy, und
began to extol it as tho nccessun pol
icy tor these times. If, however, Mr.
Iluyes hud taken the courso they de
sired him to tuke, no other Aug but
tbu "bloody shirt" would now wave
over tbe cupilol, showing themselves
by this sudden turn to be the veriest
time servers, reudy to do uny bidding
so they can keep on the warm side ol
power. Their course depended entire
ly on the course of Mr. Huyes. If be
would be rudieul thuy would buve been
still more so, but as be took a conser

Notwithstanding this provision of
the Constitution, the Radical Legisla
ture and Governor have made a special
law lor Pbiludelpbia, to prevent tbe
Sheriff from appointing deputies on
election day, and to givo that power
to tho Mayor. It is done because tbe
Sheriff is a Democrat and the -Mayor u
Radical. But It was not done for
Pittsburg, where tho Mayor is a Dem
ocrat and the Sheriff a Radical. Can
anything bo more partisan and unfair?
