Leading and strong men of the Republican party had made the country blush with shame, and now this meeting was called to decide what was best to he done to remedy mat ters. scnoiu’s speech. The Timet famishes the following abstract of. the speech of Carl Seburz at a political conference to-day: Mr. Scbnrz rose, and, waiting a moment for the applause to subside, said he had merely risen to submit a motion. As one of the.slgnera of the call ho Clanked the gentlemen present for the favor of their otlendaucc. The sice, and, If ho might say, the weight, of the mooting was far bo fond his anticipations. Ho had been some line in political life, and bad been most accustomed to meeting men who seemed ever on their guard to avoid the slightest appearance of having a will of their own-ln political matters. Ho was pleased to see what seemed to him the most happy evidence that the spirit of independence was rising and daily galnlngstrength. [Applause.] Continuing his remarks Mr. Schurzsald ho had not for some years acted with any political party, and he had been, called foolish and absurd for not doing do. Perhaps he was. We were told thill'the country mast bo governed by parties; that everything must be done by parties, and that parties must exist. This was true enough, but to bis Idea the first requisite a man should make of a party be was to act with was that It should bo good. [Applause.] Wo Independents do not want to camp out all our lives. We should bo glad of some roof to get under, but tbo stress of weather Is not so great as to make us ready to accept any party roof how ever dilapidated it may be. [Laughter. 1 They aay we Independents arc on the fence, but if we aro afraid to step down It Is because wo ace so much mud on either side of It. Referring to the issuance of the call, Ur. Sclmr* said they had sent out their invitations almost by chance. They had only inquired whether the gen tlemen they Invited wore patriotic men, or men who bad the good of tho country at heart.—men who were willing earnestly to work for Us good without being overridden by parly That was their only criterion. In response to this call, the present Conference hail assembled. It was not a packed Convention in favor of this or that candidate, but a conference of gentlemen who had met from an earnest desire to advance tho pnhilc good. They had come to see what could be done. There were two ways of doing this, one by the gentlemen present declaring the thoughts that were in their hearts; tho other, by adopting some definite plan of action. COMMITTEE ON PLATFORM. Parke Godwin, Judge S. 8. Foster, of Connecti cut, John W. Hoyt, of Wisconsin, Martin Rrlra met, of Massachusetts, and Carl Schurz, were ap pointed a Committee to draw up some definite plan of action, and to take such other measures as may bo doomed necessary, and report to the Conven tion. ' SPEECH OP DR. OSGOOD, Dr. Osgood spoke as follows: It Is every man’s dnty to bo a patriot, be he cleri cal or lay. Of late the Government has been sep arated from that high morality necessary, and sporting politicians have crept Into office, whoaro of a base and moat damnable class. Wo do not like tbo White Hoiieo. An unpleasant odor has arisen all around It, and while believing that the present Incumbent Is not a bad man, yet his asso ciates aro bad. He lias placed men in office who have made ui all hang our heads by their misdeeds. We want a man In that office Intelligent, honest, capable, high-toned, and fearless. [Applause.] OTHER SPEECHES. Franklin MneVcagh. of Chicago, said bo came on as ho was interested In Mr. Bristow, and thought the conference was also. He did not know what would be dune, but thought that tho composers of the conference were mere boys In‘politics, that they were too abstract and should get down to lomethlng personal and definite. duties .Francis Adams, Jr., said he would not fire off his cun like Mr. MncVeagh until ho first saw Ills bird. (Laughter.] He preferred waiting for the report of the Committee before presuming that nothing positive would be done. Henry A. Dowen, of Philadelphia, said a rigor ous course of politics in Philadelphia had excluded every man of respectability from office. Public honor was degraded. Office and emolment appeared to bo the atm of life. Money, money, was all the cry. Youth was corrupted and manhood put to shame. We desire to put a stop to these things and preserve oar Government from destruction. William C. Bryant begged to bo excused from speaking. Dr. Leonard Bacon said ho camo to hoar and learn. Tho Issue bofora tho country to-day la o moral one. Will we pay our dobtaT The Govern* dent baa acted In bad faith, and their notes are to* day living Men on their face. Oflicca arc sought solely (or profit, not for honor. Prof. Julius Beelye said he did notbcllovo we had (alien on degenerate times. Cases of corruption u-ero few considering tho number of persons In of* flee. We can reform nil those things by having a President who will think olllco a solemn trust, a self-forgetting man, courageous and above suspi cion, who will appoint men to olllco on merit and re move only fur cause. Col. Hlgginson, of Rhode Island, said tho party Was tottering from Its very strength, hut a little Stirring up would do it no harm, William Welsh, of Philadelphia, said It was a Question whether wo woro slaves or not. Hu thought not. The people woro In hands of wily office-seekers, and required to he shaken over tho bottomless pit before waking up. Wo want good pen in office to «nvo tho country, and must nave them, or we had heller apply fur annexation to brazil. - Mr. Behans announced that the Committee had irduous duties and could not report this evening, hn address was being drawn up to the people of the United States, hud was not ready yet; also Kune resolutions.

Tbo flrst order of business was to arrange some financial matters, oud this being completed, Mr. Fcrrlcr moved that the Clubjirocced to the nomination of delegates to the County Conven tion, to he voted for at the primary election. George Sherwood amended the motion so that tho First, Second, and Third Precincts should bo entitled to three delegates cadi, and the Fourth Precinct to two delegates. Tho amendment was accepted by tho mover of the original motion, and the motion was reduced to writing. FIRST PRECINCT. Tho motion was adopted, and it was deter mined that the nominations should be made by Sredncts, when W. Emerson, A. F. Miner, 8. C. lover, and IL ti. Alvin were nominated for the First Precinct. It was agreed to elect the nominees by a vivo voce vote, when some one urged tbo name of A. F. Miner for adoption. Mr. Carter said he wanted to know how Mr. Minor stood on tho Gubernatorial question before his name was presented—whether no wua far or against Rovundgu.

Kiddle introduced tho following resolu tion: JUtolvtd, That this Club la opposed to the nomi nation of John L. lloverldgo (or tho Governor of Illinois. Willard Woodard was opposed to the resolution.

In answer to calls or Mr. Miner, ho said that If he was chosen as a delegate he would go unpledged. Ho had resided in tho ward some time, and bad a standing In tho party, and would not submit to having hls rights as u delegate infringed on In any way. The motion to nominate A. V. Miner as a dele* gate was then put and carried by a unanimous vote. The name of William Emerson as a delegate was next brought forward, but owing to bis absence, and the uncertainty of his position, hls nomination was defeated by u large vole. On motion, 11. 8. Albln and 8. C. Blorcr were chosen the other two delegates from tho Pint Pro duct with but little opposition. SECOND PRECINCT.

The amendment met with opposition fromC. T. Adams and the Hon. John C. Barker, who moved to lay It upon tbo table, and the motion was car ried. Upon motion of Mr. Barker, the Constitution was acted upon by sections. A brief discussion took place upon tho section on membership, It be ing at length decided by the adoption of the clause that, any resident of Dio Ward, against whom there was no reasonable objection, was eligible. The constitution was adopted as read, and the by laws were taken up, considered, and adopted by sections os written. Cant. Ryan's amendment provided that the Club should, In case It was proved against any candidate in the primary election that be bad used unfair means, or introduced any outside or illegal voters to secure his nomination, declare such nom ination void.

The other clause provided that the Club should “support the regular nominees of the Republican party, whether made by delegates la convention assembled, or at a primary election when so or* dered by the Republican Central Committee."

THE HOUSE INVESTIGATION* Sfitdat Dlrpuleh to The Tribune. Washington, D. C., May 15.—Representative Morey, a Boston boy, who tuu represented the Fifth District of Louisiana since ISGO, has been to-day the mark against which the Louisiana Investigating Committee of the House Ims brought a well-charged witness to bear testimony. Tho name of this witness is Scolyc. lie Is a dis charged special agent of the Post-Ofilce De partment, and he also acted ns n Deputy United States Marshal In Louisiana in 1874. Since his discharge from odlco he has concocted an In genious statement concerning Louisiana politics, with Just enough truth about it to glvo apparent credence to a great deal of falsehood. Tilts he has tried to dispose of to Republicans and to Democrats, and he has used It to extort money from Morey during the recent contest for his scat. UNABLE TO CONTINUE TIIS BLACKMAILING OPE RATIONS, he came here last week, and made nn ar rangement to unload before the Louisiana In vestigating Committee, after the preparation of n c-ureful lino of questions calculated to elicit tho testimony which ho declined to give. The first portion of this testimony was about fraudulent United States pay-rolls in Louisiana, to which Imj could, only allude to in • general terms, as he did not desire to criminate himself. He then pro ceeded to shovy how Mr. Morey carried his election to Congress in 1874, by having a military force subject to his (Moray's) orders and by the issue of Illegal warrants for the arrest of leading Democrats, who were Imprisoned until after election. On ono occasion ho testified that Moray made arrangements witli him to take a troublesome negro opponent In to the woods and shoot him, which bo reported to Morey had been done. Morvy’H friends declare that they will produce witnesses of tho highest respectability and ability, who will prove that Soelyo is an infamous charac ter, unworthy of belief, and that hU testimony is absolutely untrue. To tta Wettem Auodated Free*. SHBLYB’S TAItN. Washington, D. C., May 15.— Tho Special Committee to investigate the Federal ofllees in Louisiana to-day examined MaJ. Seelyc. Ho re fused to testify in regard to tho pay-rolls In the Custom-House at New Orleans on tho ground that he would criminate himself by so doing, and tho Chairman of the Committee was directed to apply to tho Attorney-General for tho necessary papers grunting him immunity. As to other matters, wit ness testified (hat there was of SOB,OOO in the Now Orleans Post-Office during Lowell's administration. Lowell, with bis Deputy and cashier, wero arrested, and held to hall in tho sum of SIO,OOO each, hut were not prosecuted. Lowell turned over to his bondsmen about $30,000 worth of property, which was afterwards returned to him. Thu defalcation was finally compromised for $7,000. Ho further testified that Congressman Mo ray told him (w itness) that tho easiest way to settle the matter waa to steal tho bond, and requested witness to do ao. There were ten bondsmen who wero assessed aomo $3,000 each to secure tho com promise. Seclyoolso testified that Jewett, then Commis sioner of Uiv Circuit Court, gave him a warrant against twenty men in Morey's district. Morey erased tho names of ail but four, whom bo in structed Soeiyo to take to Monroe, and kept them in Jail till after tho election. A warrant was also given to him for Isaac Newton Glover, whom, by Morey’s ver bal instructions given Seclye in the presence of Jewett, bo was to Take into the woods and kill. Glover was nut arrested because a writ of habeas carpus required Beelye to remain with other pris- Seeiye said he did not intend to kill Glover, but left Morey under the Impression that he would do It. The United Stales Infantry and cavalry in the District were moved by Morey's directions. Ho furnished a list of his appointments, aud ordered the troops to bo at such points tho day before be •poke, us he was afraid to go without such guard. Scelyu sold to Morey orders and telegrams re reived from him (Morey) for S3OO cash and five notes of SIOO each, two of which wore paid, two arc over due, aud ouo has not yet matured. Seeiye retained copies. , , Witness claimed that he ban a memoranda by which ho could give the times, places, names, and all details. Judge Wilson appeared as counsel for Morey, who wss also present, and requested that thoap- Plication for immunity from tho Attorney-General a postponed until after the cross-examination of witness. - Moray stated that this evidence given showed that bo or Seolye should go to tbo Penitentiary, and tho case should bo decided by the courts. If Immunity should be granted to seolye. bo could not bo prosecuted, and ho (Morey) would bo with* out means of proving him infamous.

The House adopted n resolution asking tho Secretary of the Treasury to give his views upon the absorption of tho Bureau of Internal Revenue by tho Customs Bureau, also a resolution requesting the President to trans mit the correspondence relative to the dis missal of Henderson as prosecuting attorney in the Bt.

Pending the vote upon tills resolution, the hour arrived when the District of Colombia Committee was entitled to the floor, and the Speaker assigned it to them without concluding the vote. Secretory Bristow says that the published state ment that there Is a letter in St. Louis written hy him In which ho sets forth that lie resigned his Colonelcy In. the army because negroes were enlisted Is unqualifiedly false. He never resigned at alt, hut did change from one regiment to another. Farther than that bo says (hat the question whether negroes should be employed in tnc army or not was for tho Government to solve. HU duty was to obey orders, and be did so. It is romored late this evening that Gov. Jewell will retire from the Cabinet before the close of the r resent month, and a Pennsylvanian he appointed ostmasler-Gencrnl In his place. The Pennsyl vanian's name is not given, hut he is said to be a friend of Mr. Conklfng. IMPEACHMENT. The Senate In secret session heard a number of arguments upon the question of Jurisdiction In the Jklknap case. The drift of the opinion was In favorof Jurisdiction. In the secret consultation. Mr. Thurman made a strong argument In favor of asserting Jurisdiction, and Morton and Frellnghuysen against it. Senator Edmunds has the floor to-morrow, and It Is said he will argue for Jurisdiction. It Is believed Hint Sen ator Sherman’s speech to-day was on tills side, but this was not definitely ascertained. The impres sion Is strong to-night that the Senate will vote in favor of taking Jurisdiction. TO tht Weitem Anocialtd Prtu. NOMINATIONS. Washington, H. C..

THE CHICAGO Jb PACIFIC* There have been rumors in circulation for some time past tliat tho Chicago A Pacific Railroad was financially embarrassed, and that a strike among tho laborers of the road was imminent, because they had not been paid for some time past. The managers of the road deny that such Is tho case, and claim to be financially os sound as ever. The finances of (he road have not been in a very satis factory condition since the panic, hut (he Company has earned enough to pay Us way. Thu road runs now to Byron, and Is In good condition. Efforts have lately been made to bring about a union with the Rockford, Rock Island A St. Louis, In which event It would make a most excellent through line to the Mississippi. Mr. Osterborg went to Europe some time ago to lay the proposi tion before the German bondholders of his road, but whether ho has received their consent or not has nut been learned. As it Is. tho Chicago A Pacific has no Western terminus of any importance, nor has the Rockford, Rock Island A ht. Louis a proper Eastern terminus. The two lines combined would undoubtedly be qnlte successful, but If they ru main divided the end will probably bo that they both will bo gobbled un by tho Chicago, Burlington A Quincy, Chicago, Rock Island «s Pacific, and Chicago A Northwestern Railroads. These lines run parallel with the others, and are anxious to get turn out of tho way if possible.
