LOUISIANA. Senator Carpenter’s Speech on the Situation in Mew Orleans. Vbe People of Louisiana Given Some Good Practical Advice. Mr. Carpenter Reviews the Durell and Kellogg Usurpation. Kkw Orleans, May 20.—Despite the terrible weather, which completely flooded the streets, at least 2,000 people of all shades and politics assembled in Exhibition Hall to hoar the address of Hon. Matt Carpenter, who bad been request* «d by many citizens to speak on the political Bituation. On being introduced by Judge llowo, Bonator Carpenter spoke substantially as follows X Within the last week I have breathed the fra grant gales of the South, and for the first time eoon this beautiful, teeming soil. lam proud to do so, and greet you as follow-citizens. lam proud and happy of this. Your soil, climate, and facilities, X boast of, too, as mine. I sympathize with your sorrows [cheers], and 1 desire to say that I know you believe a mutual interchange ol sentiment between the two sections will much conduce to Iho harmony of both ; therefore, I will speak my jmind on the subject. I trust that the gontlo tnen hero—and yon all think more of mo than to ■fluppose that I would do otherwise—enters tain Southern sentiments, while I entertain senti ments that may be different, and that any real good may arise wo must have a fair Inter change between tbo two sections. Send your Southern speakers North, gen tlemen, and they will be heard in respect and silence; therefore, even if I speak In opposition to you, I oak your silence. The Mississippi River is the great road of the future. There are eleven States looking to it for commu iiication to the sea, The Western States, who wave not this, are endeavoring to abtam artifi cial water communication, but our groat artery hero will do away with thorn all, and wo of the West boliovo that ibo acquisition of Xouisiaua to this Union was a great thing, not only for yourselves, but for ourselves, and, gen tlemen, when the groat war came, the West was moved amongst other things to keep this, and they wore willing to ride in blood boforo this Mississippi Valley should become foreign soil. What does the Northern visitor boo? A teeming soil, oven in your swamps, your highways, and every foot of ground, and ho sees your plantations deserted and mills abandoned l>y man, and coming boro to this metropolis of the South, ho finds all the energies of man chocked. What is the causo of this? If a trav eler could laud on the shores of Now England, barren and sterile, yet green and productive, ■every industry in full blast; and If ho should travel on to the West, whore forty years ago there was hardly a white man, but which is now covered with wealth, if ho should go to Chicago and soo its risen splendors, if ho should see our pooplo'contonded, our industries at work, and everything in peace and plenty; if ho suould see that comparatively unprofitable country, and should come to this garden of the world, this City of New Orleans, and boo what you boo every day, don’t you think bo would ho astonished at it ? Don’t you think so ? What would ho say at the sliriok mgs of despair of this people; of their desola tion and rum ? And, now, gentlemen, lot mo say what 1 think are some of the causes of this, and suggest my views on tbo subject manfully. There is a groat deal more about this than the mere question whether the Republicans or Dem ocrats carried this State in the last election. This may he one of the causes, but. not the only one (applause). If I should ask any man had slavery been abolished, ho would say “ yes." and if ho had been raised to equality, etc., no would bnvo said “ yos." If I had asked whether any Stake would curtail those rights, ho would say “no but I want to know whether you have taken those facts to your heart. You must do this, and lot it bear fruit in your lives. I must say hero, gentlemen, that slavery here is not abolished. Slavery is the dominion of one race over another, and docs that exist here? I know it does not in your mouths, but I feel convinced that in some definite manner it exists as it did twenty years ago. I was intor ’ viewed yesterday by a largo number of colored men, and I learned there was a fear of the white man, indefinite yet existing, and they said they wanted protec tion. They are protected as much as I They are under the same laws, and they should not telegraph to Grant, but. as individual citi zens, stand up for their rights. They are as much protected as I am. or any one. The law is open to all reached by the United States Govern ment, bat outside of tbis there is tbo law of self defense. Now, don’t let it bo undorek. .ul I have come to stir a war of races. ‘ God forbid. But, idnee I have talked with the colored people, and I know that no such thing is contemplated by them, but what I say is this, that the right of self defense is the guarantee of every man. If u man comes to burn my bouse, I shoot him. You would da it as well as I; bo should every man, —and this is not confined to race, color, or condition; gentlemen of the’white race of Louisiana, when will the peace of this country bo restored? Only when all understand this thing. It is believed at the North that a great many Southern men, young men, instead of 'leading the colored men hero by the hand to mutually benefit each other, loaf around whis ky shops all day and employ themselves at night In shooting at negroes. When a man is compelled to do a thing, he docs not do it with a good grace, and maybe, gentlemen this is the way with this people. The colored man has hia civil rights,and lot mo tell you. gentlemen,nothing will over prevent him from having them. You lot the ola issues die. Never mind them, but accept the now ones, and carry them out. [Ap plause.] Stop any lawlessness that exists. The negro has at feast a right to live, and if he can’t live one way he will another. Now, if you will take tbo colored man by tho hand and act right towards him,and Couvnico tbo Northern people of this, all will bo well. [Enthu jaetic applause.] Now, gentlemen, slavery hav ing boon abolished, you have lost its advantages, and have not yot had time to tako advantage of Your system of largo planta tions is a bad one. You must cut them up, un der tbo present system of labor. If you do so. tbis tenantry becomes thrifty farmers. I do not know a man In the North who owns a thousand acres. Each man has a imall farm, and ho will give it his entire heart, There is not a man boro but who will acknowl edge this, but lot them act on it. [Applause.] Now, would not tho aggregate wealth of tho I country in ton years bo greater for it? Just ask the question to yourselves. Another idea of tho North is, that it is pot healthy for Northern men to come boro, and I dare say some of those who have come are not very agreeable. [Loud cheers] Now, you must not judge tbo many by tho few. Wo have got some clever men in tho North. [Cheers]. They will fight for their own rights, and will protect others. You must not judgo tho many by tho few. I had a friend who came hero and made money, but that season was enough for him. For twelve mouths not a white man crossed his threshold. We are all carpet-baggers in Wisconsin, and we have a good State. \Ve have an idea that it is good to have folks come, and we don’t carewhero they come from. In fact, if wo could not get them in any other way wo would help them in, If Jefferson Davis, or any one else, come North we give him the hand of fellowship. We don't force him to leave because he is op posed to us, but we help him on. Now gentlemen, you have soil, climate, everything to back you, and tbo question is, “Are you going to ait still and seoeverytliing slipping away, or are yon going to rise up, be enterprising, help your selves, and be great ?" You once set up a lino and protected it by bayonets. This was over come by the like, and why can't you consider the pastas dead? If you are going to keep this up, tho North and West must wait; hut I tell you some day it will pass over, and the wholo country will bo ono of universal peace and har mony. Now of yonr own particular local political af fairs. [Applause.] You had an election hero last fall, or pretended you bad one, and both Kellogg and McEnery claim to have been elected. This was hold under tho State laws. You pad an Election law, which wan in rpposltion to tho Constitution; your law was unconstitutional, and, after all was fixed, you could not decide who was the Election Board. One had no returns. (Applause.] One hid returns which were declared frauds, and another had returns which wore, as you tnlnk, legal, and by which McEnery was declared elected. To decide these, the United States Court took the matter in band out of tho Stats Courts, and attempted to settle tho question. If this could bo dono constitutionally, a more Judge could any timo turn over a State, [Applause.] Tho MoEuory men did not believe lu this. There wore two Legislatures, and consequently two Senators,—Messrs. Kay and McMillan. "Wo took un both of those cases and made a full Inquiry. We wanted to boar from everybody, and every body was hoard, and the Committee was satisfied that, if the election had really elected anybody, McEnory was olecod. llmmouso enthu siasm and applause.] But we wore not well satisfied of this, and that iff what is tho matter. If the returns were truthful, Mc- Euory was elected, but as the case was present ed to us wo wore satisfied that tho election wan not fairly hold. Tho question then was, what could bo done. Kellogg was not elected at all, and McEnory was elected, if at all, by fraud. Tho logical course, then, seemed to us. that there had boon no election. Wo know not how to settle the question. We, therefore, said tho only way to do It was to send it to tho people, and have a now election. (Applause.) Wo wore all States Bights mon. I liave been one and will always be. Therefore, tho United States Government could uotgive this State a Government, and thou the only way for us to do leave it to tho people themselves. But' Mr. Mor ton said wo had no right to inter fore with what had already boon dono, and tho election hill was defeated. Tho question again arises, “What is to bo dono?” I think Congress should settle the matter. Now, can there ho an honest election in Louisiana?- I don’t know but Congress will establish a gov ernment some way, and If there cannot ho an honest government established, Congress will give her a Territorial one. If the people refuse to recognize a State government, Congress will have to give them one. Now, to my colored friends—They are, they say, afraid to vote. Well, if they are from cause, then a government will have to bo furnished which will allow them to vote, and. gentlemen, if the Kellogg Government cannot snow that tho election returns wore fraudulent, I believe Congress wiU order a now election and put him out. [Applause.) What you must do in tho meantime is this: As tho President must see tho laws are executed ho must under the decree of tho United States Courts support the Kellogg Government, and you cannot help yourselves. That Duroll’s con duct was outrageous, 1 have not a doubt, [ap plause] hut Oou. Grant must support him un der the law, until Congress settles the matter. But you must keep tho peace until this outrage eons conduct of Durell is sot aside. It is not Kellogg that governs the Stale; it is not Grant, but tho law. and to it you must submit. Con gress will doubtless correct It, and I pray you, gentlemen, for God’s sake, do not injure your cause by any disturbance, and I fool convinced you will bo sot right. Turn your attention to your trades and com mercial enterprises. There is Mexico below you teeming with wealth, and open before you. There are the West India Islands, all for us, if wo do not allow Europe to stool our trado. Spain is committing tho outrages on our trade with Cuba, but wo will In tho end secure it. With those there is tho North and tho West imploring you, for God’s sake, to do something. Why don’t you lot politics alono ? Attend to your business. [Loud cheers.] The nation is wasting for you, and I implore you, sot your bouse in order that wo may bo with you.” [Cheers.] The audience then adjourned with throe cheers for “ Senator Carpenter, tho orator of tho • West.” Ho then returned, and stated that bo had not voted to defeat tho election bill in Congress, as reported, which announcement was received with loud ap plause. The assembly then dispersed. RELIGIOUS. Tlio Presbyterian Assembly at -Haiti* more •-Proceedings Yesterday* Special Dievatch to The Chicago-Tribune, Baltimore, Md., May 20,— 1n refusing, to-day, to approve tbo plan of a Central Treasury for all Boards of the Church, tbo Assembly apparently itself to an anomalous policy. Two 'financial systems are to bo maintained,—that of one treasury and that of several district treas uries, tbo churches to have option of sending contributions either to tbo Central Committoo or to tbo Special Board. This was tbo arrangement last year when tbo Central Treasury sobemo was yet an experiment. Now its friends arguo tho Church should approve olthor ono system or tho othor, and not undertake to pay tho costs of both. There are yot to be considered plans for con solidating tbo bonds, and somo of those may cause a reconsideration of to-day's action. A reconsideration of tbo centennial matter was moved this morning, and lacked only ton votes of tbo required two-thirds. It is still tbo pur pose of its opponents to defeat or modify tbo essential provisions. Herrick Johnson, of Phil adelphia, who was yesterday a strenuous advo cate of tbo project, said this morning that bo regretted its approval. A reconsideration would undoubtedly have been ordered but for the sharp parliamentary practice by which dobato was cut short. Southern men are much cha grined, but not disheartened, and hope to roach tuo question in another day. It was said to-day that tho Assembly has a vast amount of business to transact. Less than half the standing committees havo reported, and that on Bills and Overtures has propositions to submit which require careful consideration, and cannot bo properly disposed of in loss thau three days. Tho adjournment will probably oc cur on Wednesday, next week. This evening the Committoo on Homo Mis sions reported facts of general interest already sent The Tribune. Tbo reason for designating St. Louis as the place of noxt meeting la said to bo that efforts are now making to conciliate a small faction of tho Church in Missouri, known -as “Declaration aud Testimony,” It is hoped these will bo suc cessful, and that tbo reunion will bo celebrated at tbo mooting of the next Assembly. The “Declaration and Toastimouy” Church has 10,000 members. This evening tho Committee of Arrangements reported that a personal friond of President Grant had inquired if bo would receive tbo As sembly. and if so, what time would bo conveni ent. An answer was returned tbat tbo Presi dent would bo plesod to see tbo representative body of tbo Presbyterian Church on Thursday afternoon at 2 o’clock. Tbo Assembly agreed to postpone its regular business, aud accept the in vitation. [3b the Aisociated Prese,] Baltimore, May 20.— Tbo General Assembly of tbo Presbyterian Church continued its ses sion this morning, ami resolved that tbo noxt General Assembly shall convene in tbo First Presbyterian Church at St. Louis, and that tbo “ sessions ” of the churches of St. Louis shall be a Committoo of Arrangements. Unfinished business of yesterday was taken up, and tbo con sideration or tbo roport of tbo Special Commit tee on Bonovolonce and Finance was resumed. That particular feature of tho report which has given riso to such protracted discussion is that it proposes a radical obaugo in tho benevolent and financial system of tbo Presbyterian Church, in creating a permanent Central Financial Com mittee, who shall receive all benevolent contri butions and pay out or distribute tho samo to tho several Boards, who havo heretofore each levied and distributed them according to the direction of the donors, or proportionally, ac cording to tho sum determined to bo raised by tho Board.

During the session, a telegram of fraternal erecting was received from tho Association of United Brethren, In session at Dayton, Ohio, which was received with manifestations of ap £ rotation and good will, and the Moderator was [reeled to reply. Dr. Smith, from tho Committee of Arrange ments, submitted a statement in regard to ino proposed excursion to Annapolis and Washing ton. Tho Assembly decided to visit Annapo lis on Monday next, where they will bo received by Got. Wbyto, and Washington, including a call upon tho President, on the Wednesday fol lowing. After recess tho discussion was resumed on "Benevolence and Finance/’ and finally the report was voted on seriatim, and, with a few unimportant amendments, the principal one giving the churches permission to contribute through the permanent Committee on Benevo lence and Finance, or directly to tho Board, was adopted. The subject of the publication of a free pe riodical was referred to a committee.

Ho passed quickly to tho other end, and tho train at that instant mov ing, ho Jumped off, peering eagerly into the windows as the train passed. Ho was a wild figure, standing, revolver in hand, scowling after us as wo loft. Nobody knows what his true object was. Tho laborers said that a man was murdered in that district a few nights before, and that this man's sister had boon out raged. Either case might justify this curious intrusion. ** The programme bore will bo hurried through with all decorous haste, aud wo shall next and finally bo heard from at Now Orleans, when tho party will immediately break up.
