I slout an hour loncer. until he
learned that the military was about
to enter under Gov. Kellogg's or
ders. The do-'ngs in the State House on
the 4th of January, as seen by the
committee, or subsequently in evi
dence were substantially as follows:
At 12 o'clock noon, "lyiljavn Viger
the clerk of the last House, called
the Assembly to order, and proceed
ad to call tho roll of members as
made up from the returns of the re
turning board. Tnis roll contained
the names of 10C members, classed
by Gov. KellogT as fifty-three Re
publicans and fifty-three Democrats.
But it is claimed that ono of tho
Democrats was not a starinsr Demo
crat. :, .

their members,, Mc.t A. G, Cpusin,

the Democratic counsel and admitted
by the Republican counsel .tb.at jhe
arrest was under legal process, ju;d
by tho hands of tJjesWinT, It -was
! further claimed, $nd npt denicd.that
the privileges o hia. oEce did not
shield him from arrest. The charge
was embezzlement. The full House
would contain 111 members, ot
which .r6 would,. be, a quorum. On
the finjt ctj'l, othp roll 102 answered
to their paints, It, .is claimed by
the R public pp, and we believe con
ceded by the Democrats, that fifty
of those answering. to .their names
were .petnperats, and fifty-two were
The instant the clerk 'finished the
roll-call teveral member rose to their
feat, but th floor was successfully
held by Mr. Billieu, who said that
he nominated Jj. A. Wiltz as tempor
ary chairman. The clerk suggested
that the legal motion was to elect a
speaker. Mr. Billieu himself, pay
ing no attention to the clerk, pro
ceeded hurriedly to put his own mo
tion, which was received by loud
yeas and followed by loud nays, and
declared it carried. Mr. Wiltz
sprung instantly to the platform,
took from the clerk the gavel, was
quickly aworm in by Justice Hous
ton, who followed him to the plat
form, and. then rapped, the House,
which during this time, had been in
great confusicn, into a temporary
quiet. Mr. AViltz, as temporary
chairman, administered the oath to
the members en mass? , who rose to
receive it. Some member made a
motion to elect Mr. Trezevant clerk,
Mr. Wiltz put the 'motion, and de
clared itcarried. Trezevi&t at tttco
came forward and took tto clerk's
chair. Immediately after, and with
the same haste, Mr. Flood was
elected sergeaut-at-arras, and nt
once, whether on motion or not,
your committee do not remember, a
number of assis'antr sergeants-at-arms
were appointed, M.ho romptly
appeared, wearing badges on which
was printed "Assistnnt Sergeant-at
Arms." While the ajjove mentioned
motions were being put members ob
jected and call fcr the yeas and nays
all of which was disregarded and
and pronounced out of order by th
acting chairman. Col. Lowell, u
Republ'cau, made a point of order
j that the constitution of the State al
i lowed any two members to call for
the yens nd nays on any motion ;but
the temporary chairman decided the
point not well taken until a motion
for permanent organization was
Next a motion to go into election
for permanent organization was of
fered and declared 'prmature. Against
this ruling tho Republicans pro
tested. A motion to seat tho Demo
crats all egad to have been elected in
the four parishes, whoso election
were referred to tho legislature, was
immediately made and carried. Dur
ing this stage there was much dis
order. The Republican members
protested, but their protests were
disregarded. These gentlemen then
appeared and wtro sworn in. A
motion to adjourn was then put, and
dcclaicd lost. Jtfr. Lowell, Repub
lican, then moverl that the House
proceed to a permanent organization
and that the vote be taken upon the
roll of the returning board. This
motion was declared lost, Mr. Low
ell protesting. Mr. Matthews, Re
publican, then nominated Mr. Low
ell as temporary cl airman and put
tho motion against great confusion
and disorder, and. declared carried.
Mr. Lowell declined. to serve. The
House then proceetledi . to. elect a
a speaker. The roll .was called by
Clerk Trezevant, who, i reported 55
votes for,Wiltz. 2 for llahn nnd 1,
Mr. Wiltz's own, blank.. .This re
sjuJit was ascertained bydhsicicik. by
simply keeping a tally of tin., mem

speaker,. and, proceeded to swear ia

: o Republicans who were returned by
the returning board, and tlo 5 Dem
ocratic members who had just been
admitted. Oulside of the bar of the
legislative hall in the State? house
there were a large number of police
supported by the Federal troops.
No peraon was permitted to enter
the Str.ttv beuse, through tho orders
of Got. Kellogg. Within the bar
of Jho House were permitted only
the ijentlemen returned by the re
turning board, and the clerk and
sergeant-at-arms of the former legis
lature, ten persons allowed to the
Conservatives as messengers, who
suddenly becaxno their assistant sergeants-at
-arms, and a few other per
sons'such as were admitted by cour
tesy to the floor. Without the bar, in
the public part of the hall, stood the
contestants and other ..persons ad
mitted. They numbered by actual
count 127. Besides these the door
of the hall was kept by twenty-seven
. Wiltz maintained coutrol of the
Assembly until some timei. after he
whliobosen speaker. When the Re
publicans undertook to withdraw
from the hall, Mr. Wiltz gave in
structions to the sergcant-at-nrms
not to allow any one to pass our or
enter the hall. Then the disturbance
without the bar at once increased,
and pistol were' displayed, when, at
this juncture, a Conservative mem
ber moved that the speaker be re-
quoted to ask Gen. de Trobriand to
preserve order. A committee was
appointed to wait on Gen. de Tro
briand m retjuost nis compliance.
Gen. de Trobriand soon came to the
bar, unaccompanied, except by one
aid, whom he left- there, and then
alone approached'th speaker. The
speaker requested him to ask for or
der in the lobby. Gen. de Trobri
and did so, and order was then re
stored. The speaker thanked him
in the name of tho House for hip
courtesy, and he then withdrew.
The action pi' the body proceeded
for an hour or tn without interrup
tion, during which time a committee
on coutestod seats were appointed,
and debate had, but no message was
ent to tho Senate or to the Govern
or notifying them that that the
House was organized and ready to
proceed to business, and at lenght
Gen. de Trobriand returned and
stated he had orders to remove five
members sworn in who had not been
returned by tlxi returning board, and
after tho prote and resistance of
Mr. Wiltz to the persons referred to,
and after Gen. Campbell had been
sent for to point themfout,they were
removed by tho United States sol.
diers. Mr. Wiltz then left the chair,
as Mr. Vigers, to organize the House,
began to call the roll made out by
the returning board, and two Demo
cratic ruexnbefts had answered to
their names, wten;MrJiWiltz inter
rupted the clerk, as d called -upon the
conservative members to refuse to

HOW TO CURE A COLtf.
Tho first timo I bogan to sneeze, a
friend told mo to go aud bathe . nly
feet in hot water and go to bed. 'I
did so. Shortly after, another friend
told me to get up and tako a cold
shower bath. I did that also. With
in tho hour another friend assured
mo that it was policy to feed a 'cold
and starve a fever. I hud botli. So
I thought it best to fill myelt;Vp
for a cold, aud let tho fever kttarva
nubile. In a cao of this kind I sel
dom do things by hulves; I ato pret
ty heartily. I conferred my custom
upon a fctranger, who bed :just
opened his restaurant 'on Corthgidt
street, near the hotel, that'.inonij&g
paying so much for u full meal. -,. Ho
waited near mo in respectful ..ailenco
until I had finished feeding my cold ,
when ho inquired if tiiopeoplo about
New York were much afllicted with
colds. I told him I thought thy
were. .Jle then went out and took
in his sin. '
I started up toward tho oflico, and
on the way encountered another
bosom friend, who told mo that a
quart of warm 6alt water would
came as near cm ing a cold as any
tiin in the world. I hardly thought
I tr.d room for it, but I tried it any
how Tho result was surprising. I
believe I throw up my immortal
soul. Now, as I g.ve my experience
only for tho benefit df those of your
friends who are troubled 'with dis
temper, I feel that they will seo ti e
propriety of my cautioning .them
against following such portions of it
as proved inefficient with nio, .and
acting upon this conviction I warn
them againet warm suit water.. It
may bo a good enough remedy, but
I think it is rather to sovcre. If J
had another cold in the head, and
there was no courso left uio to take
either an earthquake or a quart of
warm salt water, I would take. 'my
chances on tho earthquake. After
this everybody in the hotel becarao
interested, and I took nil rorU of
remedies hot lcmonad. cold lem
onade, popper tea, boneset, stewed
quakcr, horehound svrun, onions
and loaf sugar, lemons and brown
sugar, vinegar aud laudanum, fire
bottles fir balsjm; eight bottles cher
ry pectoral, and ten. bottles Ucle
Sam's remedy, but all without effect.
Ono of tho prescriptions, giveu by
an old ladv.was well, it was dread
ful. She mixed a decoction com
posed of molasses, catnip l( .pepper
mint, aquafortis, turpentifco, kero
sene, nnd various other drugs, and
instructed me to tako a wineglaseful
of it every fifteen .minutes. I never
took but ono dose; that was enough.
I had to take to my bed, and re
mainder there for two entiro dars.
When I felt a littlo better, rpora
things wero reommended. It. was
dospcrntc, and willing to taker any
tkiug. Plain gin was recommended',
then gin, nnd molasses, thengin
and anions. I took all thrco. j I de
tected no particular result, hawerer,
except that I had acquired a breath
like a turkey buzzard, and had to
change my boarding piace, At4ihis
new place they suggested a, differ
ent remedy to any yet tried. lA sheet
bath was recommended. I had never
refused a remedy yet, and it seemed
poot policy to conimenco thei;Uic;o
foro I determined to tako a sl'ieei
bath, tuough I 'had no idea what
sort of arrangement -it was. It4 was
administered at midnight, and jib
weather was very frobt'. ' 3iy ;baciv
and breast were stripped, nnfl'-a
sheet (there appeared to be aVthous.
and yards of it) fcouked in icb water
was wound around mo until ""Z, re
sembled a ewab for i columbiad. It
is a cruel expedient. When tho
chilly raj touches one's vfarm"ilesh
it makes him start with sudden .vio
lence and gasp - for breath, , Jua as
men do in tho death agony.' It froze
the marrow in my bones and stopped
the bealing of my heart. I thought
my time had .come.'' WhenJTt re
covered from this, a friend "eipbm
mended the application of ; V' njus
tard plaster to my breast.' I bHov
that would have cured me cfleclnsl
