Isubject of the city emency would be much
more reassuring if a portion of it were no*.
conceived in the apirit, and expresad in t'ae
slang of a partisan diatribe. We refer erpeci.
ally to the passage in which he says : *'he
causes of the present depreciation of the city
currency are not difficult to detersuine. It is
well known to me that a class of designing
men, who have been disappointed in their
political aspirations have sought to injure the
city credit, and thereby bring the present city
government into disrepute, and who are re
solved to ruin the city if they cannot ruleit."
The charge here made, though somewhat
iDde fnite, has sufficient breadth of statement
to include (very body in the city who hlss
ctleri.e ed political hoprs which have nit
proepred under the pri'-.gt org inization of
tle city govw-rin,.enL We are not aware of
sLty otlense whiclh th. disappointed men
saguely designated in the lrciamation have
pivn to Mayor Heath, supposing him to
mean a RccmF:rtiv, ly f "i, p litie 11 aspir.nts,
unless it be their undisguised opposition to
the political sentiments and schemes of the
party to which he owes his position. We are
not as are that in relation to injury of the
city credit and to disrepute of the present
city govt rnment, their attitude has been other
than th::t of citizens who were convinced of
the nlititni s, with few exceptions, of the
present municipal functionaries and who have
had grave app,rehensions of consequent mis
manas,..Len:t, ourruption and disaster in the
financial fl .irs of the city. But in holding
such in attitude they occupy by no means an
exceltional position. They can hardly
be regarded, on that score, as con
stitut:ng a class of the community,
inaimuch as their sentiments in respect to the
existin~ icuLicipli administration have been
entertained by them in couimmon with the
great I.uljrity of the community. Hence,
when Mf'yor heath accuses political oppo
nents eo designing to injure city credit, and,
in fact, to ruin the city, his accusation, apply
ing as it does to the bulk of our population,
is equally absurd and unjust. It is unjust,
because it is wholly unfounded in fact. It is
absurd, because, in the nature of thmigs, it is
impossible to be true. The credit of the city
is the credit of the people of the city. The
morty of the city in circulation is the money
of the people of the city. And so, according
to Mayor Heath, the people are bent on de
preciating their own money and destroying
their own credit; nay, more, they are deter
mined to ruin the city that they may gratify
revenge upon municipal functionaries whose
politics they detest and whose administration
they distrust. In other words, the ly, so
Ma)or heath proclains in effect, is reTolved
to commit suicide out of sheer political spite.
The dispositi in whi lh he ascribes to this
community eclipses the story of the man who
burned down his barn to get rid of the rats
which infested it. lie might, with equal rea
son, asr(rt that the citizens of New Orleans,
in order to free their habitations from vermin
and their precincts from filth and putridity,
designed to apply the torch to their houses
and p ytih along with their families in one
universal conflagration. The patience of our
people is sorely tried, indeed, with verminal
invasion and depredation, but they have no
notion of resorting to so absurd and suicidal
a means of deliverance. In other words, they
have no thought of depreciating the city cur
rency, but wish, for the sake of their own ob
vious interests, to enhance that currency and
to promote the general credit and prosperity
of the city.
Mayor heath would put himself much
clearer in his high oflice, if he would only ab
stain from partisan recrimination. An ex
cellent way for him to rise above, and to live
down such partisan opposition as may tend
to hurt the financial prosperity of the city, is
to divest himself of partisanship in his official
capacity, to think only of his official duties
uncomplicated with political schemes, and
thus to commend himself to general respect
and confidence as the faithful executive chief
of a great city.
The fault of Mayor Heath's explanation of
the financial dificulty, supposing it to be
trne, is that it is in the nature of one of those
half tlntLs which are calculated to patch up
an entire falsehood. An impartial and faith
ful esposition of the case would never have
charge dl te depreciation of city money to
desIeratHi pIrti'inship out of the city govern
mnent, and onittedl to mention the dleprecia
ting .d.ects produced by the desperate parti

these things have nothing to do with com
mercird calculations and transactions strictly
as such, any more than they have to do with
a sum in arithmetic or a problem in geom -

the financial difficulty, in the ways indicated

urecke rs who take profit from the disasters
of a storm. Their operations are the signs,
not the causes of calamity.
We must expect the deluroeiation of city
money to exhibit itself in the sharp opera
tions of brokers and others. It is a mockery
of reform to denounce the signs of an evil,
and to take no measures for removing the
true causes of it. And in this case there is
one causewhich lies beyond political and per
sonal conaiderations, and beyond the ques
tion of general financial solvency. If the
volume of the city currency is in excess of
the local need, it will inevitably be at a die
count. There can be no certaintyof bringing
this currency up to par without a reduction
proportionate to that part of its depreciation
which is due theexcess. There is at present
general uncertainty, even in mnnicipal circles
it would seem, as to the real amount in cir

susPicin that the amount is being increased,
and that the municipal authorities do not

The elections of last year were a response
on the part of the people of the so-called
loyal Etates, to the reconstruction policy of
Congress, involving, at that time, only an
anticipated elevation of the blacks to a posi
tion of political supremacy in the South. If
the charges then made by the Democrats had
not b( en founded on deductions so clear that
the popular intellect could not refuse to
accept them, they would have been regarded
as nothing more than the ordinary utterances
of p:,rtiman opposition. If the country had
not thoroughly comprehended the inevitable
results of the congressional policy, and as
thorcuglh!y condemned it, there would have
been no reason to abandon the party which
was in the majority and which claimed to
represent the "ltyal sentiment of the
nation." Put the consequences of the recon
strnction policy were so clearly foreseen that
the current of ol;nion was turned violently
agailst the party by which that policy had
been contrived. The effects on the public
mind ' ere seen in the elections occurring
during the year 1i467, from the opening Dem
ocratic victory in Connecticut to, the closing
triun I1:e in New York and New Jersey. This
expri s-,c n of opinion was a protest simply
ac-uir' t the plan of reconstruction devised by
(',cr:-reps-aguiist negro sutpremacy, military
tl, ,)ti-ni aind liractical di-unioi. If
Congress had regarded these warnines,
and reccded from the objection urle
plan which had been adopted,
it is poss.iblel that the R'pnhl!icans n ght
Lane reccvred their lost ground. But the
radicals had committed themselves to this
plan of reconstruction, not only as a measure
of pufblic importance, but of party necessity.
The logic of the situation required th-m,
therefore, to go forward; I,-cnau.e to go back
would have jeoparded that supremacy which
thety had resolved to maintuin in spite of pub
lic opinion expressed through the voice of the
majority. Such a course implies, on their
part, a continually widening dt5lprturo from
the wishes of the country, and a continually
augmenting opposition on the part of the
public. It involves a final collision, in one
form or other, oith public opinion; because
it Ieads, necessarily, to the adoption of ex
pedie.nts for suppreu.sing the will of the
nmajiaity. Just as the people last year fo. -
saw the consequences of the reconstruction
ac ts to lie negro supremacy, military tyranny
and perpetual standing armies, they now fore
see the consequences of radical party policy
in the erection of a permanent congressional
despotism, contrived by l'-gislative strategy,
and sulpi~ t, by fo-rce. Just as last year the
people responded to the reconstruction acts,
by overthrowing the Republican party in the
elections, they are now responding to the
radical party policy, by electing Democratic
candidates in all the cities and towns that
hold elections. The effects of the Stanton
Grant controversy, and of the flagitions im
peachment of the P'resident, are seen in the
results of more than a dozen elections in as
many cities and towns at the North. For
example, in Troy, N. Y., a Democratic mayor
has just been ciosen by 1530 majority-a
gain of 1200 over last spring ; Utica goes
Democratic by 487. a gain of 2.5) ; Rochester
by bbS, a gain of r12 ; Elmira by 200, a gain
of 2£0. In Lansingburg, Corning, Fulton,
and other towns in New York, and in Port
land, Me., there are large Democratic gains.
All this shows that the division between the
iRepublican party and the people is growing
broader and deeper; and it indicates that if
that party succeed in maintaining their power
they will have to devise some method of sup
pressing public opinion at the North, as well
as at the South.

T- E OPIeIW Or TIu wO.mmLT
The so-called convention adjourned yester
day, after a session of eighty-one days. The
election on the thing called a Constitution
is fixed for the 17th and 18th of April; also
4lections for State officers, parish offaer, etO.
By fixing these elections on the same day as
the election on the Constitution, the carpet
bag vagrant and mendicant "'oyaIats" hope
to get out a vote large enough to ratify their
instrument They go into the contest with
the advantage of Gen. Sheridan's registry, by
which about half of the white citizens of the
State were disfranchised; but they will lose
much of this advlatage when the lists are
opened for revision. To the extent of voting
on the question of the adoption of the Con
stitution the white people will be compelled
to recognize the infamous reconstruction legis
lotion of Congress, and the work of the car
:pet-lag convention; and if they mean to
win they will have to work zealously
and energetically for the next thirty days. It
is not a very pleasant task it is true, but it
must be accomp,lished. Everything practica
ble must be done to avert the calamities
which would fall on the State if scheming
coinpirators and shameless plunderers should
carry their point. Louisiaua would be dis
graced if her people surrendered to such a
bsummLons without a strenuous effort to save
themselves from the degradation of negro su
prenmacy, and vagrant and mendicant mis
rule. The committees must now go to work.
There is no time to be lost. Every eligible
white voter must be registered when the lists
are reopened, and every registered white
voter must cast his ballot when the day of
election arrives. If we do all that is in our
power we shall have no cause to blame our
setes, but it is due to the cause of public
Slerty, as well as to our friends at the North,
that we use every elflrt to dufqat the nefa
rious schemes of the corrupt and tyranni
cal party which is striving to overthrow free
government in America.
