The varous badges or distinguishing marks tesited as borne by citizens on that day are First, a irescent and a a cross-cannon badge, known to be that of the Wasahigton drtillery; third, a white handkerchief tied raound theneck and fourth, a blue ribbon in the buttoni hole, though there is some reason to suppose the latter to have beenthe markrof supernumeraries or ununiformed pblice.

Many of the police were members, and such expressions as "There goes Dayes's Brigtne:" 'D--n yon, you are fighting Hays's "aIs all Hays's.

The chief engineer testifies that he lad been warned on the day previous that such would be the signal for a concentration of police in caae of a riot. The signal isnot a fire alarm, as there are but nine districts in the city, and for a general alarm the number of strokes is- twenty.

Nevertheless. two engines turned out and repaired to the scene ti of the riot. Fitemen were seenacting os and with 'c sthe police, and'tendihg the aseisthnce of thleir iron wrenches in the congeniat occupation of dispatch- tI iog the Whether this wasin pulsuanoce ti ofay previous ouders, private or otherwise, the board regard as immaterial. There osa be no doubt thathesignal was recog. nized throughout the city ts indicating that.

It is'in evi deoice'thatin oag instance orders were given, to stop a st.y-mill oshearing a'sigoal. "It is nndef. to stood that during Confederate occupatioh this id number bf strokesawas the alarm signal to tle military incase of anticipftedattack, and 'e almost seem that the.

The police testify that fire was onened upon them first, in every instance, but without considne ering that any different testimorly vold have 'the cm effect of trimihating themselves, anil regarding ise their credibility as equal to that of the'other witil, nesses, yet the mass of opposing testimony is considered as so that the board ete feel pcompelled.ngon this point to reject the police 'I. evidence as invahldated and The get. ay eral value of tieir testimoss may be estimsted by irethe fact that, out of the large nnmber examined he as witnesses, but three are willing to admit hariog actually seen fire-arms on thar day carried or scoedhby the police. he A WHITE FLAG.

at- A some point of time not definitely filed, durhe ing these charges into the hall, a while flag was no disonlayed from one of t-he. windows. This dues nos, however, seem to-have thle effect of chlecking the fire from the.outside, and according to the tes. in- timdny of the witness O'Connell and another, the police, obtaining seaccess to-the roonm on the prom. iso of protecting inmates, deliberately opened lire it on the -survivors as before.

'The police themt a silves state, as above, that on this.occasion, aos behe fore, they were first fired on from the hall.

On the subject of the character of the negro proceseion, whose ill-timed and unfortunate pearanee was the immediate occasion of the outbreak, the board are unable to 'see any evidence in support of the hypothesis that it was anything deserving the name of 'an armed organizatiou. Most of its members had such canes and clubs as negroes carry on all holiday excursions, and pertaps a dozen had pistols.

No doubt imuany of these were carried the idea an 'attack upon themselves was by no -means improbable; bit that the processioneitself could be regarded as u-body erganized to, fight would seem to persons of military expprience to have been disproved by events, over thirty negroes being uhot dead during tile firing, while tile supposed organizatifn eannot succeed ja killing in return a single ts. sailant-young only man hilled on that tide, being supposed to ldhave received a stray shot from his owrn party. It is true that; acuording to one vitneso, armed brganizatious arealluded to as exictjng by Dr. Dostie; but if this tb considered fair specimen, t.e board canuot consider the civil government of: Ldnisiana as in much danger eof being overtuirned thereby. The only evidence tending to show a previous hostile intent on the part of the tneroes is thalt ef Mer.

Sauve, the planter, who, by the way, is the only switness who liears the screams of "murder the white men," testifies to having been told by-one of his servants that a white mats had been on utle plantation taking names anud telling the negroes to "prepare, for war;" and that the negroes of the procession said they hadtlbeen ordered-to come to defend the convention. Whntever the purpose with which these negroes came, it 'is evident they intended no offensive action. Rev. Mr. Henry is told by the procession of negroes that they are pledged to have no trouble on their part.

INSPECTION 'OF THE HALL. On the personal inspection of, the hall by this 'board, there were found o. and around the door, the marks of six pistol shots which had been fired by the besieged upon their assailants. That tthe arms were of small caliber, appears from the fact that of two whiclh strelt the pine panel df the door, but oneb'had sufficient force to enter it. On the oppOsite wall which received such bhllets of the assailants as missed their aim, tweiity-two shots were The fact repeatedly testified to, tnat the pnlice, when enptying their revolvers, wete attached with chairs and driven from the hall, the boaud considers as establishing beyond the shadow, of a' doubtthat except the two or three sistols in the hands of the procession of negroes the besiefced'party were totally unarmed.

TREATMENT OF THE WOUNDED. Of'the fuither occurrences of tile day ef riot, the'board nould respoectftllly call' attention to the brutal treatment anddalmoet inhuman neglect of the and dead prisoners at the various htatiOn-bohses, before they. were, byt'ilitary to the hospitals. The evidence of Mtajor Sheridan and Dr: Avery on this pointshows as horrible a sce'e of sufforing and neglect as could have been presented on a lost battle-field. Tlhey woald also call attention to tle evidence on the subject of the renewal of the attack on' uegroes, and tile shooting of thet in their dwellings by both citizens'and police; late on.

the same Victory street. PEsENiCnE OF vTE TROOPS. The board will state it as their firm conviction, that but for' the declaration of martial law, and thetpresesce of thle troops, fire andt. bloodsled voold'have raged throughout the night it all uegro quartrrs throughout the city, 'and that the lives and' property; of Unionistsl and. Northern men would have been at the mercy of thle mob.

The conservators of the peace being for the time the instigators of Siofinue, notlhing would have remaine bat In narming for self-defense; and at scene might have ensued unparalleled itythe bislcy of the age. As in thle Gordon London, and the more recent 4raft-riots in.New York, thesaffair would have passed beyond the power of he'origiiatoro, into the hands of that class whose only objeqt would lhvdo been plunder sand dehtruc-, iion irrespective of party. In the 'board's opin luin, th property of the Souathern merchant, ntot les than the life of tlis tlgro antd the Unionipt, was that night under of thefederal bayonet alone.

His appointment of Luicicn AdSn ams at a Sergeant, is considered by the chief as ice oitraging the feelines of the community. But the of Board ore compelled to slate that, ini their optsnti- ion, it is the party to which such men an Ladien Adass were leaders, that Mayor MIonrot owed Isis Fre-election.

THE CHIEF OF POLICE. In regard to the chief of police and his share of responsibiity for the riot, it will be remarked that ht was but a subordinate, carrying out the orders of his superior. The board are inclined to regard him as well disposed in the main, and only regret thathe should have thoughtit his dty to resignrathercthan to aid in executing a programme of which he must have forseen the result. There is but one point fn which his testimony may be regarded li invalidated. In common with the nmayor and t2' police generally, lie denies the giving of any orSders to arm.

If tle evidence of the policeman Dorsey, and the clerk and telegraph operator Cageaux, is to be credited, such orders were sent by a ithe mayor, through the chief aund subordinates, on Sunday. CONCLUSION. In conclusion, the coard will state thlat it is by no means their opinion thlt hostility to Northern and Union men so prevails in tihe Ccmmcnity at large, as of itself either to endanger their life or property, provided they refraic frmc claiming fieedom srpeeclh concerning snubjeots oa which. like that of slavery beforel thie nwar. no difference of opinion is tolerated.

But in regard'to thi party wh sh elected Mtayor and whichl thcough him, now controls in a great measure the mntuniipal government and city this party the board do coneide' as most thoroughily imbued with ithe spirit hosltility alluded tol, andl so son 'thie lapse of suffiiciept line shall ihave convinced them that no punislmncr is to be anticipiated for past offenses and that they noed he no longer "on 'their goodbehasior," then, in tire board's opinion, a period of insedurity for Northern life and property will recommence. Tile recent success of tthis party at tihe polls, is, in the Iboard's opicnioc, due, first to tihe fiact that its candidate was pesuliarly identified with the Confederate cause, and, secondly, to the unfortunate apathy of the best classes of th community on the subject of inunicipal elections, which appears to ha the curse of large cities, and results, in tlrowing the governtment thereof into unworthy hands. The commission have 'taus endeavored to give, as concisely as possible, tihe ronoluoins at which they have been compelled to arrive on tie subject of the causes of and the responsibility for the recent bloodshed. What, if any, aetiou is called for is for the decision of Iigher authority. JOSEPHr A MOWER, Brevet Ma.

This.called forth a letter of censure from Gov. Andrews, who protested against using for any such Iurpose troops raised in lmInasschueetts.

The reply made by Butler was regarded his friends as the hiest Sproduction of iis life, nod completely silenced the clamor of the governor. re declared that it was his prrpose'to enforce the laws, asnd not alone against white mlen in rebellion, but against blacks also: that to seek the aid of negroes against the Sorthtern popunlation, would be a disgrace to the Seivilization of the age; tlhat theactinr of Britain In using thi lndian tomahawk and scalping kmofe against thle Coloies, would he rendered respect. able hirtiory by the inlamy whiclh would attachl to tihe North if it placed tihe dbfenseless swomen andchildrel of tie South'at tihe mery iof tire gro.
