CORRESPONEDNCE. Note From Jihljcc iVrifflil Carteksville, Sep. 10, 1874. Hon. A. Wright: Dear Sir —We, the undersigned, your personal and political friends, would request you to make a few speeches in behalf of Dr, Felton, thereby serving his election to Con gress. The opposition will import speakers into the district, to advocate the candidate of the Calhoun Con vention. Dr. Felton will be unable to do all the work, and if you can help him, “beginning at Rome,” the people, your friends, will remember you kindly, and some day will reward you with their confidence. Yours, Jno. A. Erwin W. G. Williford, Jab. G. Lowry, J. J. Howard. The original letter, of which the above is a true copy, is oue of several which I received upon rny return from Summerville.

It is well known that I atn —I have been for sometime —wholly opposed to these conventions, believing that they have ceased to he a fair representation of public opinion, and manipulation ia favor of rings and corrupt politicians. But if organization is to he kept up by these conventions, must they not he fairly conducted?

When the county of Fioyd is made after a declaration of the vote, to nom inate the candidate against the ex press pledge of one of the delegates, ought it to stand ? If so what fraud would be sufficient to set aside a nom ination ? — A. R. Wright. Editor Commercial .’—lnstinctively averse as I am to uewspaper notoriety aud controversy, in connection with my name, the above fling made by Judge Wright against the integrity aud fideJity of my action in the Cal houn Convention, leaves me no alter native other than silently to submit to au unqualified slander, or to repel it, as I now propose to do. So long as these reports charging me with treach ery to my constituents, were peddled through the streets and in the coun try, by a set of sore-heads aud whip per snappers, I was content to leave their correction to private explana tion, so far as it would accomplish that object ; but when this charge of treachery is heralded to the public through the|newspapers over the signa ture of the Hon. A. R. Wright, it assumes an importance that not only forbids silence, but imperatively de mands refutation. In order that there might be no misunderstanding as to what “Floyd county delegate” the above thrust was made at, I called on Judge Wright in person for information, and he very frankly stated to me that I was the delegate to whom he referred in his extraordinary communication. To vindicate his own desertion of the Democratic party and its principles, which has never been strong enough to satisfy him, he seeks to justify his own treachery to party feality, by dragging before the public, a private in the ranks, whose inconsistency, as he would have it, fully opens the door to let him out of an organization, the harness of which never was strong enough to hold him when not in his own persoual interest. Such a puny argument might perhaps befit the mouth of a shal’ow-pated gasconade, but for a man of Judge Wright’s ac knowledged intellect and statesman ship to come before the public over his own sign manual, aud plead such an excuse (even if true) for an aban donment of his party, and his allign ment with traitors to it, would baffle the most profound logician to account for it, other than upon the hypothesis of political .dementation, or a cun ningly prepared pill to administer to credulous patients as weak in the Democratic faith as he is himself. To my mind it only convinces me of what I was satisfied before the assembling nf lKa flftlhmm jL'nnvAuiiAn LKoLKa BATTLING FOB THE RIGHT. was trimming his sails for a bolt from the Democratic party, for some time before that convention assembled. All that surprises me is, that Judge Wright’s prolific brain did not suggest to him a more plausible pretext to justify his last political summersault. The truth is, however, that political summersaulting is a disease with Judge Wright, and like a Texas mustang which periodically vamoses the ranch, his time had come to again vamose his party, and it would have required supernatural agency to have held him in Democratic harness longer. But when he seeks to kick out of his traces and charge his defection upon me, he mistakes his man,if he supposes that he can, with the mere dash of his pen, make me the scape-goat of his abandonment of principles which ought to be sacred in every true Southerner’s heart. So long as the Democratic party could be worked iu the interest of Judge Wright, and he could be selected as its honored standard bearer for congressional and other honors, we heard of none of his wars upon wire pulling conventions, but on the con trary his eloquent voice was every where heard shouting, “Great is our Diana!” but now, when the people have retired him behind “Lincoln’s proclamation,” and other lights have loomed up before them, and not a sin gle Wright delegate could be mus tered iu the District, then presto, change —“down with conventiono and convention candidates.” Let us now examine Judge Wright’s manifesto against both myself and the nominee of the Calhoun convention. He charges that the nomination was a fraud, because, as be says, the “county of Floyd ia made, after a declaration of the vote, to nominate the candidate against the expressed pledge of one of\the delegates.” This is put in the form of an interrogatory by Judge Wright, and iu it two incorrect as sumptions are made—lst, that Tram mell was nominated by Fioyd county, and 2d, that that nomination was against the express pledge of one of the delegates. lam the delegate he had reference to. Now for the facts which Judge Wright could have avail ed himself of, n it bad suited his pur pose as well to have used them. First; as to the pledge. In the Couveutiou which elected me a dele gate to the Calhoun Convention, t//<- on my own motion, the nominees were aiked to define their positions as to candidates, the motion was sustained, aud I announced myself for Col. Prin tup, and stated that if chosen as a delegate, that I should stand by him as long as there was any hope of suc cess. I further stated that Lester was my second choice. I further volunta rily said that it was reported T wo- : - 1 ‘ nomination ot Col. 1 ram med, which report I contradicted, and added that he was not my first, my second or my fortieth choice; but I made no pledges that I would uot sup port him “under any circumstances.” The convention demanded no pledges further than au expression as to the first choice of delegates. So much, therefore for my “express pledge.” Now for the sequel. The proceed iugs of the convention show that there were seventeen ballots; and the entire vote of Floyd county delegates upon every oue of the ballots, was given against the nominee. On the seventeenth ami last ballot, Col. Fou chfc', Judge King aud myself <voted for Col. Printup, ami the balloting as published shows it. Upon the an nouncement of that ballot, declaring Col. Trammell the nominee, he having received a majority of the votes of the convention (not oue Floyd dele gate having up to this time voted for him) I arose aud moved as is usual iu nominating conventions, to make the nomination unanimous, which was car ried. Afterwards a dispute arose as to the count of the secretaries, some as serting that Trammell had received only sixteen votes. I knew the con trary to be the fact, and knowing as I did, that Col. Trammell was fairly nominated, aud believing, as I did, that the questiou was sprung in order to break up the convention, I so stated to Judge King, aud we agreed to si lence the clamor by transferring our votes from Col. Printup to Col. Tram mell, which gave the nominee 20 votes instead of 18, the requisite number. Now, with this plain statement, I am willing to submit to any fair-minded man how much truth there is in the assertion that Col. Trammell was “nominated by Floyd county.” He was fairly nominated, aud so declared, before Judge King and myself changed our votes. I will merely add, that at one time I was very much opposed to the nom ination of Col. Trammell and freely expressed myself as such. At that time I was prejudiced against him, on account of the rumors against him as a lobbyist, but upon an investigation of that matter, which I was requested to do, I became fully convinced that he had been grossly calumniated, and my feelings towards him underwent a change. Upon one other subject also my miud underwent a change. Though an out and out Printup man ; up to the time of the assembling of the Cal houn Convention, I had but small hopes that he stood any chance for the nomination ; but upon as close a canvass of the delegates, as I wa3 able to make at the Convention, I was led to believe that Col. Printup’s chance for a nomination was second best in the Convention, and that if Trammell failed *o secure a nomination, that Printup would succeed. Hence my principal reason for holding on to Col. Printup through the whole of the 17 ballottings. Now my action in the Calhoun Convention is fully before the public, and my vindication I leave to the sober judgement of the public. I have no “pardon"’ to ask of anybody, for my action in that Convention, nor shall I cower under the lash of sore heads, renegades, false-friends, open enemies, kuklux witnesses, Civil Rights allies —etidomne genus. “Lay on McDuff and woe be he who first cries hold, enough.” P.

New Orleans, September 14. —1n res ponse to a call for a mass meeting in Canal street this morning to protest against the seizure of arms of private citizens, people began to assemble about 10 o’clock, and by 11, the great throughfare was fill ed for several squares, many stores were closed, and there seems to be a very general su pension of business at this hour, 12 m.

A mass meeting on Cana! street, adop ted resolutions requesting abdication of Gov. Kellogg, and a Committee con sisting of K. H. Marr, chairman, Jules Tuyes, Samuel Chapin, Sam Bell, J. M. Seixas to wait upon the Governor, and the meeting is awaiting the report of the Committee. ANOTHER DISPATCH. The Committee of five appointed by the Canal street mass meeting, called at the Executive office about noon. The Gover nor not being present, Brigadier-General of the Goveytor’s atari received the dele gation. Air. Marr, as spokesman, said they had called as a Committee to inter view the Governor. Gen. Dibble said he would convey the intelligence to the Gov ernor. Alter a brief absence he returned and made a reply, which at the request ofMr. Marr was reduced to writing as follows; ! I have communicated with the Gov ernor. and he directs me to say to you he miiit decline to recieve any communica tion from the Committee appointed by the mass meeting assembled on Canal street. He does so, I nm instructed to say, because he has definite and accurate information that there are now several large bodies of armed men assembled in different parts of the city, who are met at the call which convened tbe mass meet ing which you represent. lie regards this as a menace, and he will receive no communication undersuch circumstances. He further directs me to say that should the people assemble peaceably without any menace, he would deem it one of his highest duties to receive any commu nication or entertain any petition address ed to the Governor. •T have received and answered you, gentlemen as a member of his staff. ‘•(Signed) Henry C. Dibbi.f, “Brigadier and Judge Advocate Gen- ernl. Ljiaic iailliu ’ To which Mr. Marr replied the follow ing : We repeat that there are no armed voters, there are no armed men in Canal street, so far as we know, we came on a mission of peace, and we believe that if the Governor had acceded to the propo sition we brought to-day, which was to abdicated would have pacified tbe peo ple ot Louisiana, and might or would have prevented violence or bloodshed. 8o far as we are concerned, we are pre pared to pledge to him no violence in person or property, and we feel no dispo sition, on the contrary, to assure him that there should be perfect immunity to both. The substance of the foregoing re ply, was subsequently, by Marr’s request reduced to writing by the Governor’s pri vate secretary, aud banded to him to be read at the mass meeting. Gen Dibble, on the part of the Gov., replied: I have to repeat what I said be fore, that while there may not be armed men on Canal street, there are armed bodies within a short distance assembled on the same call as your mass meeting. The committee then retired, and soon after reported the result of this interview to the meeting. The people were then advised to go home and get their arms and ammunition, return and assist the white leagues, who were then under arms to execute plans that might be arranged for them. The people then quietly dis persed, and afterwards quite a large number formed in procession and march ed up Camp street. New Orleans, September 14.

About 4 o’clock yesterday the Metropolitans were stationed on Canal street, one wing, 250 men, with one gun, were stationed on the north side of the Custom House, commanding Tchoup iteulas street. Another division, 300 strong, commanded by Gen. Badger iu person, with four guns, occupied the south side of the Custqm House. At a,quarter past four Badger, with his men and guns, marched forward on the levee. The other body of the po lice prepared to support him and fired on the citizens. The latter filed a volley and compelled the Metropoli tans to return to their old quarters near the Custom House. Badger’s army kept on until it had almost reached Gravier street. Suddenly a dozen volleys were fired on them, some from buildings and some from the streets. Three companies of White Leaguers, headed by Gen. Og den and Captains Buck, Gallegher and Pleasant, charged upon the Met ropolitans iu the most gallant manner. They received the fire of the Metro stright on the charge. The Metro poAans rushed off towards the Cus tom House and a volley from the cit izens brought down 18 meu at the first ire . On. Badger was seriously wounded tv'o sergeants, one corporal and four oAter officers were killed aud 37 men wouided. The pursuit of the Metro politans was kept up almost to the door of the Custom House.

A dispatch lias been sent to President Grant requesting him to recognize the McEnery and Penn government, which is in quiet and peaceable possession of this city and State. Grant issued a proclamation ordering the Patriots to disperse in five days, but no attention was paid to it until after they had accomplished their work. Within the five days allowed by the proclamation it is supposed that the gov* eminent under the new auspices will be fully established. The best opinion is that at the end of five days, finding all quiet, the government will let things rip ple. No one knows of any constitutional machinery by which the Kellogg govern ment can he restored. THE WAR DEPARTMENT NOTIFIED.

Washington, September 16.—After the adjournment of the Cabinet the President stated to the agent of the American Press Association, that he had nothing to make public just then, but during the after noon he would give to the press whatever news the government might have, and also any change of action on their part. At the cabinet meeting this a. m., the Attorney General was instructed to pre pare another document on the situation in Louisiana. The nature of these docu ments will not be made public nt present. By some it is thought that the document will be a proclamation convening Con gress in extra session, others, it is thought, say that it will simply relate to the general situation, and counsel moder ation. The Attorney General aud his as sistants are engaged in preparing this doc ument, which will be submitted to the President at an extra cabinet meeting, which is called for 3 o’clock, this p. in. If the paper is approved it will be given to the public immediately after the ad journ meut of the Cabinet meeting. A dispatch received here this a. m. states that the Lieutenant Governor has issued a call for a meeting of his Legislature to convene on the 20th The opinion is ex pressed here that if this Legislature shall assemble before the expiration of the live days mentioned in the President’s proclamation, will doubtless render an extra session of Congress inevitable. This is the opinion of the President and officers of the Government. District Attorney Beckwith and Sena tor West have had several consultations with the Attorney General this morning. They are confident that Kellogg will be maintained. About a year ago an order was issued, directing General Emery to pravant any interference with the Kellogg government. Timorderwas in the evi dence on Monday at the time of the Penn demonstration, but owing to insufficient troops was not enforced. Yesterday an order was issued by the President direct ing the 3d Infantry to proceed to New Orleans from Holly Springs. General Emery, who was there when the order was received, accompained the troops to New Orleans. Other troops will be im mediately sent there. A dispatch was received there this morning, stating that Kellogg had taken refuge on a revenue cutter with all his papers. The Louisiana revolution has staggered the administration and they will do noth ing within five days. There can be no doubt that it is their present intention to restore Kellogg It is said that Grant is very angry. The tone of the Northern papers is per plexing, many of the most ultra Republi can papers arguing that Louisiana has ex ercised the divine and conceded right of revolution. During the five days it is both hoped and feared that the white peo ple of Louisiana will “not dull device by coldness or delay.” LOUISIANA. What the Government is going to do-Kellogg Must be Sustained —5,000 Soldiers en route for New Orleans. Washington, September 16. —This morning the Cabinet session lasted only half an hour, but at it, it was de* cided that the. KELLOGG GOVERNMENT MUST RE SUS TAINED, and that the power of the government should be reserved for that purpose, if necessary—when the cabinet separa ted for the purpose of allowing each member to study the question more thoroughly, to prepare some sugges tions as to the best practicable method of arriving at the determination. Upon separating, it was agreed that another meeting should be held at 3 o’clock p. m. At this last meeting, which lasted over an hour and a half, a long and earnest discussion ensued, as to the best means to be adopted for restoring the Kellogg government to power. Each member of the Cabinet presented his own views on the sub ject, but no final conclusion as to de cisive action wa3 reached. It was, however, decided to notify Gen. Emery that on no account could THE PENN GOVERNMENT EE RECOG NIZED ; and that at the end of the five days, mentioned in the President’s procla mation of yesterday; that if the so called insurgents had not dispersed, and left the Kellogg power in peace able possesion, such action would be taken by the Government, as in its judgment, the emergency requires. This notice to tien. Emery is not meant to clothe him with any authority to restore Kell.igg iu power, but sim ply to convey him the determina tion of the authorities here. In the meantime the President and his Cabinet will consult from day to day and perfect a plan of action to oe carried out. After the expiration of the five days, should the Penn faction in the meantime not have dispersed, the President aud all his Cabinet will not hesitate to express their utter con demnation of the course pursued by Kellogg in surrending at the first sign of danger, and flying to the protection of the United States troops. They also state that in deciding to sustain Kellogg, they do not undertake to de cide the question as to who 13 RIGHT AND WHO IS WRONG in this business, but simply to main tain a decree of the United States Court, which decree has never been reversed by a higher tribunal, and also to preveut the establishment of a any day be followed by other States in the Union. The President this afternoon direct ed Gen. Emery to take measures ;to prevent the Penn government from drawing or using any portion of the State funds, and to carry out this or der at all hazards. OVER FIVE THOUSAND TROOPS have been ordered, and are now en for New Orleans. Rear Admiral Mulaney, command ing the North Atlantic station, has been directed to proceed to New Or leans with the available force of bis fleet, which is, perhaps at most, only three vessels. The action of Penn has created considerable excitemeut throughout the North, and is cou dr'O’ued by the leading papers. THE ATTORNEY GENERAL’S VIEW. Attorney General Williams to night, in a lengthy interview with a representative of the New York Asso ciated Press, said the so-called Kel logg government has been established and in full operation for about two years. It has been repeatedly de clared by all the courts of Louisiana to be the only legal government of the State. It has been repeatedly re cognized by the President, and implic itly by Congress. The President, in a special message, called the attention ot Congress to the subject, aud stated that if they took no action, he should feel bound to regard the Kellogg or ganization as the lawful government of the State. Congress declined to legislate about the matter. The question is now whether Kellogg or McEnery ought to he Governor or whether or not. There were frauds or irregularities about the electiou, but the question is whether a State government that has been fully organ ized for nearly two years, and recog nized as such by all the departments of the government, State and Nation al, can be properly overthrown by the armed populace of a city in which the seat of government is located by means of violence and bloodshed. Admitting all the wrongs charged upon the Kellogg government, can these proceedings be permitted to stand as a precedent ? Are the gov ernments of the States of this Union to be determined by promineiameutos and violent and bloody outbreaks as they are in Mexico and South Ameri ca. Ido not see how this can differ iu principle from tin: Arkansas case. Mr. Brooks claimed that he received a majority of the votes at the election, and I always believed that he did. Baxter, however, was the duly install ed Governor of the State of Arkansas. Brooks relying upon the claim that he was elected, displaced Baxter by a coup d’etai, but the President refus ed to recognize his right to hold the office obtained in that way; that was a decision against the Itepuhlicans and in favor of the Democrats. Fol lowing this precedent, I do not see how the President can recognize Penn. To do so would be to hold that a po litical party defeated or claiming to be defeated by fraud at an election for State officers, might, if opportuni ty offered, take possession of the State by force, and so substitute violence and anarchy for law and order. I believe it is the duty of’ the general government to put down the lawless ness, whether committed by Republi cans or Democrats. The President has not been governed by party con siderations in these quarters, and has oftener decided for Democrats than Republicans, in respect to Southern difficulties. Whatever may he said of men aud things in the State of Louisiana, the proceedings of the President in respect to that State have been from the beginning in conformi ty to law. His course in my opinion will not now he changed. There is not a sensible man iu the United States who does not kLow that the seizure of the State government of Louisiana by Penn and his adherents is in utter violation and disregard of all law. Cau any reasonable man expect the President to become a par ty to such a transaction? With res pect to the election, it is impossible to determine who was chosen. The returns have never been canvassed, and they were made up in perjury, forgery and fraud. I have never be lieved that the McEnery ticket was elected. It is absurd to suppose that when Virginia and North Carolina, and nearly all the Southern States, including those that are generally Democratic, went for the Grant ticket, as is pretended, especially when the candidate for Governor on that ticket was an unreconstructed rebel Colonel. But it is too late now to go back to that questiou The issue now is between law and order on the one hand, and violence aud disorder on the other, and upon that issue the po sition of the President is now a satis factory oue.

Bloodshed in Alabama. Armed Negroes Fire on Unarm* ed White Men —A Party of Whites Rout Them., September 15, 1874.— The Sel ma Times has the following special dis patch : Dkmopolis, Ala, September 15.— A difficulty took place in Greene county, be tween this place and Forklaud, this morn ing. Dr. Miner, of Forkland, on visit ing a patient on the Rowe plantation, six miles from here, found a large party of negroes in arms and drilling. When asked whet they meant, they told him that negro blood had been shed, and that they were determined to have white. On his return to Forkland, Dr. Miner report ed what he had seen, and the citizens seat two unarmed white men to pacify the negroes, and to let them know that the report that any of their race had been killed was false. Upon approaching the negroes, these white men were tired upon and both wounded, one seriously and the other mortally. This morning the whites to the number of thirty or forty went down and dispersed the armed negroes, killing and wounding several of them. The negroes numbered two hundred. They are the same negroes that stopped the government rations and have held armed posession of the public highway ever since. When tired on this morning they dispersed, but they are reported to have reassembled, and declare that no white man shall pass the road on pain of death. The county commissioners’ court of Dallas county, composed of two negroes and two white men—all Republicans— adopted the following resolution .• “Asa court we are unacquainted with any vi olence used toward any citizen or any person in this county, in consequence of his political opinions, expressed or enter tained, as an American citizen.” Crime and Casualty.

As the canvass opens in the Sev enth Congressional District, it is be ing clearly developed that the Radi cals are playing a deep game to insure the defeat of tho Democratic nominee. It is true they are making some show of nominating Maj. Zack Hargrove, or some other pronounced Radical, witli the hope that Felton will carry enough disaffected Democrats to se cure the defeat of Trammell; but the indications as to what their real inten tion is that they intend to vote solid for Ihe “independent” candidate on the principle ibat “a half loaf is bet ter than no bread.” This view of tbe ease is strengthened by the declara tion ot Mr. Akerman, the “Ajax” of the party, corroborated by the posi tive statement of ex-Beuator Walter Brock, who is in power in Haralson county, that the Republicans are sat isfied with aud will vote for Felton. Now in view of these facts, how can the true meu of the District aid aud abet in this nefarious coalition by voting for a disorganizer ? Shall the unsullied patriotism of the people of the “banner District” of the State he besmirched in the filth of such an unnatural association ? We cannot believe it! and will continue to hope that all their personal preferences aud prejudices will he yielded cheerfully to the judgment of the Convention composed, as it was, of the true men of the party. A reporter of tbe Herald hunted up William D. Goodwin, cf Bartow county, who will be remembered as a Radical member of the Constitutional Convention of 1868, and of the suc ceeding Legislature. Reporter.—Mr. Goodwin; what do you think of the political status of the Seventh District? I think it splendid. To use an old expression, without meaning to be disrespectful, the “rogues seem to have fallen out; honest men stand some chance now to get their rights.” Reporter.— Do the Radicals intend to run a candidate in that District? I do not know, sir. I can answer for myself that I am in favor of one running, and a simon pure Republican at that. I am a Republican from principle, and want no half-way man to run, if any one man is run. Reporter. — Who would you desire to run ? I want Walker, Harvey, Akerman or Dever. As matters now stand, I believe we cau elect either oue of the four. Reporter. —Will either of them run ? I do not know, but hope they will. Reporter—Suppose no Radical does run, what will the Republicans then do ? Vote for Felton, of course. Reporter.—But why vote for Felton sooner than Trammell ; Feltou says he is a Democrat? Because the electiou of Feltou dis rupts aud disorganizes the Democrat ic party; it produces and encourages splits in the party, that will break the back of the ku klux Democracy. I am the enemy of the Democratic par ty as such, and because it is the ene my of free speech, and ostracizes a man for his political opinions. I be lieve Felton an instrument in the hands of Providence to tear down that infernal organization ; but, understand me, I am for a good Republican be fore Felton.
