New Orleans *cachet*
The report of the Military Board of
Commission appointed to_ investigate
the causeseof the New Orleans massa- 1
cre, is at Last beforethe public, furnish
to the Tri b une, exclusively, from our 1
Washington bureau, and obtained with
much difficulty - . The President, in
spite of the universal demand for its
publication, has kept this extraordina
ry aocumeut secret, and there was l
eon to fear entire suppression. It
will easily be seen why he dared not al
low it to be published.-
The whole responsibility of the mas
sacre. is placed upon the civil authorities
of New Orleans, and through them up
on the President, who sustained their
course. The Radical Convention is ex
onerated from the charge of inciting the
negroes violence, and it is proved that
the negroes who paraded were generally
unarmed, and could have had no hos
tile intention. When the Convention
was attacked, it is established "beyond
a shadow of doubt that, except the two
or three pistols in the hands of the pro
cession of negroes, the besieged party
were totally unarmed."
On the other hand, the Commission
found that the Mayor expected an or
ganized attack would be made on the
morning of the massacre, and he with
drew the police from the streets, armed
them, and held them to await orders.
. The city was left to the mercy of the
rioters. The first attack was made by
ex-rebel soldiers upon the negroes, and
011ie was foileied by the advance of the
police in three columns, firing on the
negroes and the Convention. Organi
zations of rebel soldiers joined in the
attack. The alarm bell gave the well
known signal which during the rebell
ion summoned the rebel soldiers to the
defence of the - city against a federal at
tack. Sweeping through the streets, in
answer to the tolling bell, came Hay's
brigade and bodies of men bearing the
insignia of rebel troops. - They fell up
on this helpless Convention, this poor
procession of negroes, who, carrying
the Bag of the United States, blindly
trusted to its protection, and "pursued
the work of massacre with a cowardly
ferocity unsurpassed in the annals of
It was not the duty of the Commis
sion to describe the scenes that ensued,
but the report gives startling evidence
of the fiendish spirit_of the police and
- mob, and state, as a firm conviction,
that " but for the presence of the troops,
fire and bloodshed would have raged
throughout the night in all negro quar
ters of the city, and that the lives and
property of Unionists and Northern
men would have been at the mercy of
the mob." They also declare that Ma
yor Monroe knew what the action of
the police would be, and " intended the
inevitable consequences of his own
acts." Yet this is the man, and these
the men, that Andrew Johnson defend
ed as the friends of order.
In his speech at St. Louis, three days
after the date of this report, when the
substance of it had in all probability
reached him, and when at least the
main facts were known to the whole
country, Mr. Johnson declared " every
man in the Convention to be a traitor,"
and the Congress of the United States
, to be the cause and origin of every drop
Jot' blood that was shed. As in the first
'place, he gave full power to the civil
government of New Orleans to do as it
pleased - with the Convention, and refu
sed to take any steps for its protection,
so he has since been the consistent de
fender of Mayor Monroe and his police,
and the traducer of the loyal men they
killed. He has denounced Congress.
and the Commission, by the same im
plication, has indicated his own policy
as the cause of this massacre. Between
the two the people will not find it hard
to choose. There is Sheridan, Baird,
and a Commission of American soldiers,
on the one side, and on the other An

But this great scourge of our rich allu

an antidote which effectually neutral

rarely, or, as some of our neighbors say,
never fails. It is reliable both for pre

We ask such of our ladi readers as
have unsteady nerves not to take our
remarks as too literal. Yet we say to
every man, woman, and child:
" Beware of the dog behind the door !"
Not that some ill-natured cur crouch
es behind every door in your respective
dwellings, awaiting your passage only
to grip you by the heels. We do not
mean that, of course.
But the avenues of life are doorways,
and they who cross their thresholds are
menaced there by a danger akin to
what you would recognize were a surly
dog to lie in wait behind your doors.
It so happens that men and women
tread most of the avenues of life ere
they count forty years. To them the
tinsel glitter of temptation has become
a dull tarnish; the false and the true
are separated, and the mirage which
dazzled and confounded inexperience is
resolved into its poverty-stricken ele

have all this to experience. They have
many doors to pass through, and every

.To the young man who drinks beer
or whisky, not because he likes it, but
because it is companionable ; who gar
nishes the puffs of his cigar with oaths;
who carries more gold on his fingers and
shirt-bosom than he does in his soul;
who looks upon men of principle as slow
coaches; to him we say—" Beware of
the dog behind the door."
To the young woman who regards labor
as something to be avoided; who des
pies the kitchen-maid because she
washes, irons, and cooks for a weekly
stipend; who patronizes the dancing
master more than she does the school
master; who regards her heels as sus
ceptible of greater culture than her

To the young man who regards it as
a disgrace to bezcert in the streets with
the marks of daily labor upon hishands

The Republicans of New York are

Fenton's re-election as Governor, cer

gives him 40,000, the balance of the State
will go 20,000 better. But the Fenian
vote may not go for Hoffman, in which
case his majority in the city cannot
New Jersey will go Republican we
guess. If so, then every Northern State
will have gorie dead against " my poli

to close 'up the campaign.
There is a speck of war in Maryland.
Certain charges having 'been preferred
against the Baltimore Police Commis
sioners, appointed in pursuance of an
act of Assembly, Governor Swann has
summoned them to Annapolis. The
question is one of jurisdiction, and will
probably be decided by the Courts, tho'
the Governor threatens to employ mili
tary force to compel their obedience.—
The case is simple: The Police Com
missioners are loyal men, and Governor
Swann is a Coppeilohnson. The Reg
istry laws of Maryland disfranchise
rebels, and the Governor wants to set
the laws aside.
