This evening at half-past four o'clock as Mr. Kel logg was coming out of the office of the Morgan Steamship Company, corner of Natchez alley and Magazine street, he was accosted by Mr. Charles K. Bailey, a prominent merchant of this city, who ?aid:? '?Are you Mr. Kellogg?" Kellogg stared at him, but did not answer. Mr. Italley then said:? "If you are you arc a cowardly, swindling scoundrel, and if you will stand like a man I will treat you as you deserve." Mr. Kellogg made no answer; but, turning pre ternaturally pale, sprang into his carriage. Juut at this moment A riSTOL SHOT was heard, and Mr. Kellogg instantly placed his hands to his head and cried out, 'Take me home! I'm shot I" The carriage immediately drove off. We havo round It impossible to ascertain who flred the shot. Several people saw the smoke, but no one saw the shooting. AN EYEWITNESS' ACCOUNT OF TIIB AFFAIR. Mr. Hutchinson, of the Arm of C. A. Whitney A Co., said:?"This morning a detachment of police took charge of and picketed the wharr of the Texas Railroad Company. They Interfered with busi ness to an unwarrantable extent and created con siderable alarm. I rebuked Captain Flanagan, who was in charge, and sent word to Mr. Kellogg, expressing my disapprobation of their conduct. ARRIVAL OF KELLOOO. At hair-past rour o'clock Kellogg called at the office In his carriage, to explain the matter. While doing so his carriage at the door was imme diately surrounded by A LARGE AND KTCITED CROWD, who commenced Jeering and denounring him. Just as the negro was driving off some one In the crowd flred a pistol, wounding Kellogg, it Is said, in the neck. The driver Immediately piled the whip and drove up Natchez street at a furious pace. The crowd lingered for some time in the neighborhood and the utmost excitement pre vailed. TflE SnOOTINO DON* BY A DOT. A bystander who witnessed the whole affair called at the HernUt ofllce to state that the shoot ing was done by a boy about sixteen years of axe, who escaped at a rapid pace down Magazine street. Mr. Kellogg was taken to the St. Charles Hotel, where he arrived very badly frightened, but uuhure. KELLOGG'8 STATEMENT. Immediately on learning of the shooting we despatched a reporter to Mr. Kellogg's residence, on Prytania street, just above Clio, presuming that he would be taken home at once if injured as reported. On arriving at the house he found that Mr. Kellogg had not yet arrived, and the inmates were entirely Ignorant of the affair, as no an nouncement had as yet rcacbed home. From Mr. Kellogg's residence our reporter went at ouce to the headquarters of Oeneral Emory, corner of Camp and Delord streets, where he arrived just in time to see General Emory dismount from his carriage. Engaging that gentleman in conversation relative to the shooting and the rumors concerning it they entered the building, and tn a few mo ments afterwards Mr. Kellogg himself entered the door, looking quite natural and smiling. He shook hands with Oeneral Emory, who Inquired If he had been hurt. kei.logo?<Oh, no. Some foolish fellow shot at me as I came out of Charles Morgan's office, but did not hnrt me. The whole thing, you see, oc curred In this way. I rode in my carriage, accom panied by Captain George Norton, round to Mor gan's office to see Captain Hutchinson on somo business. Arriving there I jumped out, and told Norton he need not wait, as I should be detained some little time. Ho thereupon left, and I entered the office to see Captain Hutchinson. I remained there about twenty or thirty minutes and when I came out I noticed quite a crowd of persons standing on the >aiiquette, out did not attach any special signifi cance to that (act. Just ?3 I was on the point of entering my carriage a gontlemau whom 1 did not know approached me and asked if my name was Kellogg, on my answering in the affirmative he began cursing me. I do not remember what he said, but I replied, "I don't know you, sir," and stepped iuto tne carriage, as wc were turning into Natcliez alley, a moment after, a pistol was fired by someone unknown to me, and Instantly I felt a peculiar SENSATION IN TXIK BACK OF MY NECK. I think the ball cut through my hair and must liavo come through the back of the Carriage top. At any rate, for some reason I do not now under stand, I fell forward on the front seat and the carriage dashed forward at a rapid rate. The driver evidently being scared, I found It impos sible to restrain him, and wc dashed along over toward Carondelet street, and Into the stable. There I got out and came up here. That is the whole story.'? - kkllogg congratulated. While Mr. Kellogg was narrating the incidents of his narrow escape quite a number of persona dropped in, having heard the flying rumors, and when he closed Ids story they stepped forward and congratulated him. Dr. Kellogg, Judge Howell and others of Kellogg's adherents were among those who first offered their congratulations. ANOTQEB STATEMENT. Another eye-witness made the following state ment:?"The young man who fired the shot was about three paces behind the carriage as it | turned into Natchez street, followed by a loud and | Jeering crowd. The shot penetrated the back of the carriage. The man was well dressed, very j quiet and very collected." MORE OUTRAGES. W. R. Pish, editor or the New Orleans Republican, and S. C.

The troops will not be able to leave for Brashear till one o'clock to-morrow. They will arrive at New Iberia at twe o'clock on Friday morning. They then have ten miles to march to St. Martins ville. DANCING CNDER difficulties. A ball was given at Brashear City to-night, to which all the United states officers were invited, hut all the Metropolitans were excluded. COLONEL DE BLANO in command or the citizen forces was regularly commissioned by Governor McEnery last winter as a regular colonel or mllltla, and the forces were organized by him some time ago under his com mission. They have, however, been largely re cruited by volunteers. ACTION OF THE GRAND JURY?KELLOGO k CO. IN DICTED. The Grand Jury or this parish have been looking Into the matter closely, and after having critically and profoundly weighed the Indictments which were severally made, both against McEnery and Kellogg, have presented William Pitt Kellogg and all those aiding and abetting him in his usurpa tion of the government of the State or Louisiana. The Grand Jury proclaim that the right or seir. government is guarnnteed to us by the Constitution of tne l.nlted Slates, and declare that in their opinion the Metropolitan police should be regarded as criminals for abandoning their post or duty. They request Judge Abell through the Attorney General, to summon William Pitt Kellogg, who claims to be Governor; James Longstreet, who claims to be Major General or the mllltla, and A. S. Badger, Superintendent or Metropolitan police, to answer by what authority the police are sent, rrom the city. The Grand Jury farther declare that Kellogg has violated his oath In sending the police into the country, thereby jeopardizing the lives and property or the citizens of New Or leans. They are of the opinion that the usurpers should bo criminally prosecuted. Judge Abell ordered that the report be filed and subpoenas Issue for the individuals named in the report to appear before the Grand Jury to answer the [ charges made against them. proclamation BY M'ENERY?OrrHAUK.* denounced. The sacking of the /uu shops la.it night hod aroused public condemnation, ami U utterly repu diated by tue citizens. In relation thereto Gov ernor McEnery has issued the following proclama tion To THE people ok Nhw Orleans:? 1 cannot permit the events of yesterday to pass by without calling your attention to a certain transaction that can only bring down reproach and Hhamo upon the good name or this great city and its people. With the object of tho meet ings called yesterday and last night, which was to give expression to onr sympathy and perhaps extend material aid to the heroic Deblanc and his brave people, who are baring their breasts in defence of the integrity of their homes and against the infamous usurpation which to-day affects to govern the State, I most heartily sym pathize. These brave men deservo the active con tenance and support of every honest man in the State. Hut the disorderly tumult and riotous action of some of the residents of this city, who after tho adjournment ol the meeting last night broke into and sacked the gun stores of Messrs. Mudge A Folsom, cannot be too severely condemned. 1 hereby, in the name of the good and truo men of this State, characterize such ucts as dis graceful and calculatcd on!y to bring down disaster upon the cause for wljich we, in common, are struggling, and I do sincerely hope that the plunderers may be detected and punished to the full extent afforded by our criminal Conrt3 and the law. The cause of honest and Just government in this State can hut be subserved by peaceful, honest, determined and lawful resistance upou the part of Its good people. If war Is leucd and armed attacks matte, we can but resist. Hut If no: attacked, our true policy is one of pcace. JOHN McENEItY. INTERVIEW WITH GENERAL EMORY. As there were flying rumors on the street to the effect that United States troops were to be for warded to the sceuc or the conflict a reporter of the Herald at New Orleans couclnded to see what authority there was lor them, and proceeded at once to General Emory's headquarters, corner of Delord and Camp streets, about half-past live o'clock this evening, but found that the General was not In. Not to bo baflled, our reporter proceeded to the St. Louis Hotel, only to meet with another disap pointment. The General was not ihore, and no body could tell where to And him. Helieving tho surest place to And an ofllcer is at headquarter , he wended his way thltherwaid again, ;mi thin time was rewarded for his trouble. Immediately ou sending In his name the General ordered him to be shown tip to his office, where he received him with military politeness. Reporter?General, I have called to see you to ask whether or not there has been any requi sition made upon you lor troops, either by Mr. Kellogg or Marshal I'ackard. General Emory?Yes, sir; Marshal Packard has made a requisition upon me for troops to act as a posse comliatiis to execute writs ol arrest against certain parties In St. Martin Parish. I shall send a company off to-morrow morning. Now, sir, 1 have answered yonr questions and shall ask you some. Is there to be a row to-night ? Reporter?I think not, sir. I have no Idea that any serious disturbance is meditated, though the people are naturally much excited. General Emory?If you know ol any Intention to have a riot I tliltiK you ought to tell me, because It can do your people no possible good, and It will be my duty to put It down with a rough hand. I am determined not to permit any riot, and It Is strange to inc that your people can't see that every act of violence, every dlsturbauce, every negro that you kill, only tends to strengthen the government that you desire to overthrow, and to render your case more hopeless before Congress. Reporter?They are mily aware of that fact, General; they fully appreciate the force of your reasoning. But what would you have them dor Submit quietly and pusillanimousiy to a govern ment they do not recognlzo as having any founda tion in right or law? General Emory?Submission does not necessarily imply pusillanimity. You can maintain a resist ance before the Courts. Reporter?The Courts of the State are effec tually closed against us, and arc notoriously in the interest of the Kellogg government. General Emory?There are the United States Courts. Reporter?They arc closed too to all intents and purposes. The Supreme Court has postponed the consideration of our case expressly, as It seems, to remit the whole question to Congress. General Emory?Well, sir, you will And that Con gress will not bo Inclined to take your case into consideration if there are any more Collax affairs. Reporter?The Collax affair, General, was re garded as having been extremely unfortunate through the necessary result of the condition of affairs existing in Grant parish. At tills moment visitors were annonnced, and our reporter, thanking the General for his cour tesy and candor, bowed himself out Just as District ' Attorney Bcckwith and Mephistophlles Bcckwlth bowed themselves In.
