-o SeA a class of un ean birds belodgs
lion. T. W,. onway, who, whgq making
his debut in this conhtry, carried the pre
fex of Rev. to his hame. We' ate not
aware what were the t~eological qualifica
tions, nor what ecelesiistical authorities
invested him with the title, any more than
we are of the reasons that prompted him
toptow it away so spe ly in his: orpet
f iwhen his keen nostrils scented the
plunder of the political carcass of Lonisia
na. Perhaps it was convenience, perhaps,
ad more likely, a sense of his utter an
Iorthiness to wear the" soeerdotal robes
while grovelling in the slimy paths of ioli
ties. Certain it is 'that wiith its putting
off, went all dignity, and apparently all re
gard for truth, respect and decency. This I
truant lamb lately made aspeech at a mass I
meeting where, according to our contempo- I
S-Boot-black Row, he romanced as i
folows-:
Mfr. President and Fellow-Citizens:
As I was approaching New Orleans this
evening on board the ears on the Jackson
railroad, I overheard two rebels of this
city in conversation concerning myself.-
One said to the other, as he pointed back
to wherea was seated, "There is that d--d
Conwo y ptpting back there." His friend
said, "eshe Radicasl have a big.iet.
ing in the city to-night, and I only wish
that the train might break doWn so that
be could not reach there." I simply re
marked, "'he cars will do bothing ot the
kind for the reaseon that the iLo,' n
Conway's side and not on yours.' So it
has turned out, and by the aid of His good
providence I am here to witness this won
derful:asemablage of the layal citisens of
New Orleans."
We pass oer'tli ptobabittiee of ejseh a
doubtful occurrenee, out of respect for its,
great antiquity, and its tong service totyro
p ers of all shades of opinion and poli
tics, and simply call attention to the blas
phemous assertion, " The Lord is on Con
way's side." If this' cianmelen Carpet-bag
geria such a favorite of Heaven it is fair,
to presuame that he has been specially
eared for through many jears of service,
and we feel, upon the common ground of
hubamanity, justified :iw inquirieg of Con
Swaywhether he experienced much divine
appport wheo .regulatnt the domeatio
afire of the Zenana on. aroone street
while Superintendent· of te- Freedmen's
Bureau. Were the dusky houris who
hung upon the honeydf his lips actuated
5oi by.. desire to share the reflex of his
divine ef'ulgence ? In Sne, was his grace
so boundless and his surplice so unstained
by arthly taint that be could afford to
leave publie camdal and risk worldly repu
t-tion in the discharge of his divine duties ?
We must believe so., A msa who would
thus associate his name with that of the
Almighty c ertainly do io i*ro ng. He
must be iret among men, yea, even among
angelos.-IN 0. Times;
