Some very curious testimony wm given before the Special Congressional Com mittee on Louisiana Affairs yesterday, by Major Seeiye, an ex-United States marshal, to tbe eflect that Congress Morey bad sug gested to blm to steal the bond of t^e de biting Postmaster Lowell at New O.leans as the easiest way to settle that matter. He also said that, besides directing him In tbe j? rformanee of outrage* apoa ihe liberty of citizens for electing purposes, Moray na?l )i.strncted him to take a rerialu Isaac New ton Glover in tbewo^i* aid kill him. Glover coui<J Lot conveniently be arrested,however, tut be bad uo intent >?a of Killing him, tl ough be left Moray under that Impression. Representative Moray was present before the committee with counsel. He Indicates that he 'can destroy the value of Seelye's testimony. Seelye is at present employed In the New York custom-bouse. Tbe commlttec met to-day and eon tinned the examination of Selye, who testified tnat he bad made arrests at tbe Instance of Moray, on blank warrants, of persons guilty of no crime, exeept that they were demo crats. When he left Louisiana he went to New York, and had with him documentary evidence to injure Moray.

He gave them up. bat Sept copies, and because Moray failed to pay tbe three notes last doe be considered that be bad violated an agreement both bad entered Into that be should say no more concerning the Matter. The War in Louisiana?Srri<ms Cm ill ti'<n of Affftir* ? A dispatch from Lieutenant Governor and Acting Governor Antolne, of Louisiana, thin morning, sets forth a most a-r1on? condition of affair* In the parish of Went Felt Plana, and all along the Ml<slsslp pi line. Much blood has alrealy been abed, and mncb more will be sbed unlesa prompt action Is taken. Gov. Antolne Is unable to respond to the call of the sheriff for military ai<l. since tbe last legislature failed to make an appropriation for mllltla purpose*. Conkling vs. Edmunds ? Quite a shtrp and somewhat acrimonious passage took place between Mr. Conkllng and Mr. Ed munds In the Senate to-day, whlcb created for tbe time something of a sensation. li grew out of a motion of Mr. Sargent to refer bis Chinese bill to the Committee on Cajn inerce. Mr. Conkling, who Is chairman of that committee, suggested that If It met with ihe wishes of the Senator from California the bill bo referred to the Committee on For elgn Relations, to which be tbought it should go. Mr. Edmunds Interposed an objection, cr ntending somewhat sarcastically that It shonld be referred to the Committee on Com merce. Mr. Conkling in reply, in his pecu liar manner, arraigned Mr. Edmunds as a chronic objector, and intimated that since Mr. Sargent was willing to allow the bill to go to the Foreign Relations Committee be (Mr. Edmunds) has been guilty of adiscour usy. Mr. Edmunds made a mock apology for havlngoffended tbe gentleman from N-iw York, and promised never to do so any more. Tt>e matter ended by the reference of the bill to the Foreign Committee, as Mr. Conkling desired. The War Department Investigation. TBE KENTUCKY CENTRAL RAILROAD CLAIM. The Committee on Expenditures In tbe War Department met to day and resumed their inquiry Into tbe matter of the Ken tucky Central railroad claim. General W. M. Dunn, Judge advocate gene ral of tbe army, testified that during tbe years 1870 and 1871, while assistant Judge ad vocate gene, al, he was on duty as law offi cer of ibe War department, and in the fall of 1873 this claim was referred to him by the Secretary of War, In the ordinary course of business, for examination and report. The papers remained in bia office from some time In November until tbe next May. and n ceived a very careful and thorough exam ination at bia hands. As tbe result of tbis examination he was clearly satisfied that It was a Just claim, and therefore he made a favorable reporf, which being approved by the Secretary of War and afterwards by the 3d auditor and 2d controller of the Treasury, procured its payment. No effort was ever made in any quarter to influenoe his Judg ment. The Secretary of War requested him, a hen he received the report from tbe Quar termaster General on the subject, to forward a copy to Mr. Pendleton, who forwarded an argument in reply. Pendleton never tried to influence him except by one brief oral statement and a written argument. Tbe matter was then left to take its course. Wit nets bad served with Mr. Pendleton in Con gress, but his acquaintance with that gen tleman was limited He had no reason now to change his judgment as to the claim being a just one. In response to further ques tions Ger eral Dunn presented a written ab stract of the chief points of his rep jrt on the claim. Quartermaster General Meigs, who was present, was asked by Mr. Clymer wnether he desired to say anything in regard to tbe testimony of General Dunn, lie replied that be did not consider it necessary to do so, as bis c (tidal action concerning the mat ter was fully set forth In the record. Tackling "Johnny'' Davenport Again ! The Committee on Expenditures of the Dei artment of Justice this morning resum ed the examlLatlon of Mr. John 1. Daven port, who produced the law showing his au thority for getting pay lor indexing his books. In the index books there are, inclad it g Ean.es, nearly eight million words, and witness charged for these words tbe sums allowed by law. This index was simply a I ci py ol the registration lists alphabetically hi d orderly arranged. In all his charges for tbis index witness never made a charge not warranted by law. Tbe Indexing be con. ceived to be a necessity. The indexing dl I m;nished the labor of the office very ma I terially. I In reply to Mr. Meade, the witness said I that prior to May, 1871, be was a member of I a law firm In New York. Tbe first work be I did after the dissolution or the law firm was I to take a copy of the census. Question. Where did you get that copy of I tbe census, for as I understand it tbeoensus was not then printed? Witness could not answer that question as I put, unless he was permitted to make an ex I planation. Some charges had been made against blm of wrong-doing in connection with that census, and be would not answer unless be could explain. He was willing to I say, bowever, that be got the copy of the I census from Marshal Sharpe. After some discussion by tbe committee he was permitted to explain that be made his compilation in a room of the United States court house, and when be said be got the pa pers from the U. 8. marshal, he meant only I so far as his clerks were permitted to handle them. His compilation was not made from tbe regular June census, but from a census taken in October, on acoount of a feeling that tbe June census was incorrect. Witness was examined at some length In relation to his compilation, the manner of doing it, 6 c., but no new facts were elicited. ? Conventions tmis Wiik?Several im portant political conventions are to t* held this week, besides tbe conference of reform republicans in New York city, at thesugges gestlonof Messrs.

IHTCBSSTIHG TESTIMONY. After our report of the Blaine Investigation closed yesterday, Mr. Harrison was recalled, and having been asked the question by Mr. Hunton whether he could tell tbe proximate value or the seventy-five bonds, replied be bad heard them spoken of as valueless bonds. When he made a motion In the. board of directors for an Investigation be believed them to be valueless and thought It strange they should be Jonnd among the assets of tbe Union Pacific Kallroad Company. Mr. Blaine called Mr. Harrison's attention to a point in tbe latter's testimony which Mr. Harrison explained by saying that after wbat Rollins had told him be aszed Mr. Mil lard " to stick a pin there; thai such an In vestigation as be had propoMd would Involve Mr. Blaine and might come up in future." He meant come up in Congress. Mr. Harri son said that when Mr. Rollins was on the stand before the Credit Mobllier Committee he telegraphed to Jeremiah M. Wilton, tbe chairman, to ask Mr. Rollins certain ques tions about the seventy-live bonds, but the questions were not asked. MK BLAINE COK.tKKS MR HARRISON. Mr. Harrison, In answer to a question by Mr. Blaine, said: "80 far as the books and papers of the Union Pacific Railroad Coin pan; are concerned, yonr name is not con nected with these bonds." Mr. Blaine?Have you any reason to be lieve that I was corruptly associated with them? Mr. Harrison ?Only from what Mr. Rol Uns stated to me. Mr Blaine?Have you not said that yon held something that would blow Blaine sfty hlgh whenever you chose'.' Mr. Harrison I only repealed what Mr. Rniilns told me. Mr. Blaine.?You did not speak of having dynamite that would blow me up'.' Mr. Harrison.?Nothing of that kind. I have always had a friendly feeling for you, and hope tnat you will come out of this m it ter satisfactorllv. If you bai written to me I should have told you In reply that the books of the Union Pacific Riliroal com pttny did not show your name In connection with the seventy-five bonds, or In any trans actions or.tbat kind. All my information came from Mr. Rollins, who said an Investi gation would ruin you and defeat your elec tion to Congress. Mr. Blaine When 1 had been elected two days before? Mr. Harrison That's wbat Rollins told me. In further answer to Mr. Blaine's ques tions Harrison said be told tbe editor of the iLdiabapolls Journal that If Blaine was a candidate for the presidency thU matter ought to be cleared up. Mr. Blaine replied that Mr. Harrison bad never afforded him an opportunity to satisfy him of the truth. Mr. Blaine, addressing Mr. Hunlon, said that although the resolution of the House under which this investigation was held did not refer to him by name, the proceedings had been conducted as if he had been on the stand Mr. Huntoa said that while It was true thai Mr. liialue's name was not mentioned in the resolution, there was not a man, wo man or child but knew tbe investigation was designed for him, and so Mr. Blaine mast understand it after his conversation with him. Mr. Blaine thanked Mr. Hunton for his (?curtesy and kindness In opening doors to ibis investigation, and said that on Colonel Sctt'.'s testimony this case must stand or fall. TESTIMONY OF COL TH08. A SCOTT. Col. Scott said he came before the commit tee according to the summons, and not on anybody's 6ide. While here he hal heard evidence on points Implicating his own per 8od, and therefore he wanted to testify; he could explain not only all transactions with reference to himself, but everything about the 75 bonds; this was a correct and proper transaction, based on equities due to him i>elf, and with which Mr. Blaine hal nothing to do; he desirtd to be a witness in this case, so tLat bis testimony might go to the coun. try In connection with tnat already laken, Hud pei baps after his testimony thera wjuld ue no reed of other witnesses. After a recess of an hour and a half Col. ?Scott was sworn, and on being examlnM b> ! Mr. Hunton testified that he formerly owned these 75 bonds of the Little Rock and Fort j Smith railroad company, and boo?ht them a year and four months previously to bis selling them to the Union Pacific railroad company. He bought them from Jo?iab Caldwell, Who was negotiating bonds for that company. Caldwell belonged to Bos ion, but he did not know where he now was; he understood, however, that Caldwell dur ing the panic of 1373 went to Euiops after his railure In the west, and was there now. He gave Caldwell ?0 cents on the dollar for the bonds, and paid him In currency or chesk or draft; he did not remember which; the pur chase was made in 1870, when he had nothing to do with the Uulou Pacific railroad com pany; he gave *00,000 for the bonds and sold them to the Union Pacific railroad company, through Morton, Bliss A Co., for nearly *64,000. When In March, 1871, he entered upon the duties of president of the company the stock was low down and everything con nected with It depressed, but it was not long before there was a marked Improvement in all Its affairs. He had believed the company would give bim a liberal compensation for his services. He was pressed for money, which he wanted more than the mere salary, and it was finally suggested that tbe company should buy these seventy-five bonds of tbe Little Rock and Fort Smith railroad company. He was to have the op tion of buying them back. Tbe executive committee agreed to buy tbe bonds at the price fixed, throngh Morton, Bliss & Co , and tbe bonds went to tbe Union Pacific railroad company In this direct way and in no other. His year's salary had never been paid; that would be (8.000, with Interest If the Arkan sas road bad been completed the bonds would have been worth from 90 to 100 cents on the dollar. He bad rendered the Union Pacific railfoad company a service for which there vA no market value: be was satisfied that If the Little Kock and Fort 8mltb rail road bad been built its bonds would have been as good as those of the Union Pacific are to-day. He repeated that this purchase of the 75 bonds by the company was In con sideration of valuable services rendered by bim. Tbe investment In these bonds was because tbe company wanted to do an equit able thing Tor him. The company did not display the transactions on their books, and never expected that it would become the subject of Investigation by a Congressional committee. _ q. Do you know whether Mr. Blaine had any part in lbese transactions? A. 1 never had any relations with Mr. Blaine in Little Rock and Fort Smith rail road bonds, directly or Indirectly. By Mr. Lawrence:?If I understand you correctly tbe sale of the bonds to the Union Pacific Railroad company was adoptei as a means to compensate you in part tor extra-' ordinary servloes? A. Yee. Q.' How does the compensation you re ceived compare with tbe compensation ot other companies for similar services? A. Tbe Reading Railroad oompany gives Its president jwo.uoo per annum, the Pnlla adelphia, Wilmington and Baltimore S31.000, and the Erie *40,000. but when you come to consider how low down the stocks of the Union Pacific Railroad company were when I became president, and the prosperous con dition of tbe oompany goon afterwards, my compensation was worth double tbe value erf tbe .5 bonds of the Little Rock and Fort Smith Railroad company. The reason wby compensation was given In this form was the exeeatlve committee did not wlsb to In terfere with or disturb the fixed salary of 98,000 to the president. _ o.

Never before in our history has the public mind been so pro- | foundly agitated by an apprehension of the dangers arising from TBI rUYALUCI or CORRUPT TENDE5- 1 CIRS and practices In oar political life, aud never baa there been greater reason for it. We will not display bere in detail the lug catalogue bt the which for | several years have followed one another in rapid suoeesslon and seem to have left scarcely a single sphere or osr political life untouched. Tbe records of ojurts, of state legislatures, and of the natloual Congress 8PBAK WITH TRRRtBLR PLAIN 1*RS3, and still they are adding to the scadalous exhibition. While such a ttate of things would, under any circumstances, appear most deplorable, It is peculiarly so at the present moment. We are about to celebrate the one hundredth birthday of our national existence. We have Invited the uatlons of earth on this great anniversary to visit our lard, and to witness the evidence of our material progress as well as tie working and effects of that republican government wbicb a century ago our fathers founded. Thus tbe m"sl Inspiring memories of our past history arc rising up before us In a new glow of life, lorcing upon us the comparison of WHAT THIS RKPUBLIC UNCI WAS, what it was Intended to be, aid what It now Is, and upon this we have rballenged the Judgment of civilized mankind conjointly with our own. There is much of wbich every American citizen hat just reason to bepioud?an energy and thiitt, a power of thought and action; a progressive spirit, which in magnificence or result have out stripped all precedent and anticipation; a history abounding in Illustrations of herole patriotism, fortitude and wlsiom; a greater freedom from foreign wars nnd revolution ary changes of government than most other nations can boast of?our rep lbllc but a cen tury old. and just ls-ued from the only great civil conflict we have bad to deplore, so strong In resources and organization tha* it stands In the foremost ranlc of tbe great powers of tbe earth; and yet with all ibese splendid results on record it cannot ee de nied that at no period during the oentary behind as the American people bare been less satisfied with themselves and that THI CKXT1RNIAL AMUVRRSART of the declaration or ladependence In so many respects to all Americans a day of slneerest pride and rejoicing, 1s felt to be in other respects not without self reproaca and bamUlation or the corruption revealed in our political life is the cause.

Bow ean we avert such danger* and wipe off soeh shame? By proving that although tbe grrernmsnt math nery has become oorrupt, tbe great body of the people are sound and strong at the core, and that they are honestly deter mined to reform tbe aouses of our political lire, and to overthrow at any oost the agen cies of evil that stand In tbswar.
