cmrr, in all respects, is a paper which we offer
as cre'ditable to the literature and journalistic
enterprise of New Orleans. Filled with the
latest news tly telegraph and mail, with in
teresting local events, with a miscellany of
literary contributions original and selected,
and with the latest financial and commercial
intelligence, it is a paper which we
offer to the public with entire con
Idence in its being acceptable. The
Sunday C(aC SakT being carefully and leisurely
read, is a papelr the advantages of advertising
in which are so apparent that nothing further
on the subject need be said.
The Weekly C(mu:s,:NT, Issued every Sat
urday morning, coutauns the news of the
week by telegraph and mail, editorials,
local matters of interest, flnancit and com
mercial summary, state of the markets and
a collection of interesting miscellaneous
articles. It is an an accptalle present to send
to a friend or correspondent in the coun

the mail, can be Lud at our counting-room.
We will receive a limited number of adver

eirculates in all the surrounding States, its
value as an advertising medium is very great.

Grant is running for President on his
military record. '.he people of the United
States are called on to approve the radicil
scheme of reconstruction, the four years'
dislocation of the Union, the disfranchise
ment of Southern whites, the bogus Black
Crook Constitutions, the attempt to remove
the President and to convert the government
into a congressional despotism, because
Grant captured Vicksburg and finally took
Richmond. The New Yotk World finds it
expedient to recall some of the facts in
Grant's military career, in order to sho .v that
he is almost as much of a charlatan as a soldier,
as a failure a statesman. For instance:
Grant en asnnomme command May 4, 15 ;I. had
of etlective men beoides the reserve, when he
crossed the Itapidan. 123 00)0.
Lee at the same date had an effective force of
Grant's reinforcements up to the battle of Cold
Rarbor. Jone 3, were '7,100.
Lee's reltfolcemeuts up to the same date were
Grant's total force, including reinforcements,
Lee's total force, including reinforcements, was
Returns to their respective governments showed
that when both armies bad reached the James,
June 10, the number of Grant's army that had
been put h' 'lv r'oobat was 117,000.
Up to the sanme date the number of Lee's men
who had been put hlrs du, comdl,, was 19,(000.
The two armies then niet in fr,nt of Petersburg.
The World says that it has been at so:me
pains to ascertain and verify these figures.
and vouches for their subitial accuracy.
Upon what authority does the House of
Representatives dare to arrest and imprison a
citizen of the United States for refusing to
answer questions relating to his private affairs ?
Upon what authority does it dare to imprison
a citizen of the Unit d State at all? What
crine has Mr. \Vooley committed ! What law
has he violated"? How does Congress acquire
the right to indict, to try, to convict, to sen
tence, and to inmrison a man. It seems,
indeed, that in this country there are no
longer private rights. ]hctlcr can rob the
telegraph offices with impunity and drag
men before him for examination, and can
persuade his colleagues to imprison them if
they refuse to answer hls questions. How
long shall these persons abuse the patience of
thle country with impunity'.

tattes. Blut, we are not informed of the
nature of these objections. The telegraph
tells us that no fault is found with the Ar
kansas Constitution; and as this i the worst
of the whole, we pr,'sume that the rest will
be considered models of beneficent states
wanaship. What, then, is the difcultty ? Per
hi'ps there is a suspicion that the Southern
States will vote against Grant and that thus
all the radical fat will be pitched into a Demo
cratic fire. This is a sorry excuse to the car
pet-bagjers who tave worked so hard for their
offces, and who really care no more about
Grant and Colfar than about chalk amdhehee.
PRECEPT AND PRACTICL
One of the Chicago resolutions adopts the
Declaration of Independence as a part of the
platform af the Republican party. Another
resolution, apparently intended to be the
logical sequence of the first, guarantees the
right of suffrage to the " trooly loil" people
of the Soutlh But, unfortunately, the same
resolution declines to guarantee the right of
suffrage to the negroes of the North. The
Republican party proclaims itself to be in
favor of the equality of all men before the
law, and officially declares that this equality
has been assured by the reconstruction policy
of Congress. Equal ty before the law is con
strued by the radicals to mean the right of
everybody to vote and hold office. This is
the Republican theory. The Republican pra -
tice is to permit the Northern States to
disfranchise the blacks to their hearts' con
tent, and to allow the Southern "loyalists " to
disfranchise the whites ad lib;l;ta. That is to
say equality before the law means the right of
everybody to vote for Grant and Colfax, and
the right of carpet-baggers to get hold of the
offices in any manner that may be most con
venient. If suffrage is a natural right, why
is It that an essential portion of the radical
scheme of reconstruction is the distranchise -
ment of white people : If it is the duty of
the Republican party to seccre the right of
suffrage to all "loyal people," why should the
loyal b,lacksof the North be left to take care
of themselves? The truth is that the doc
trines of the radicals are inenuted to meet the
exigencies of the political situation, and when
the practical application of their doctrivru
threatens them n ith loss they very qai-etly
drop the doctrine and adopt dittbrent practce.
Thlerijis no man in the country so blind as
not to see that the whole plan of radical
policy is adapted to the presumed interests of
the radical party. In other words, the party
is not organized to catry into effect a certain
set of principles; l-c its professed principles
ere assumed i. order to strengtlhen the party.
They reJatse to admit the natural distinction
exifting between two dissimilar races. as a
test for the exercise of political rights; bat
they have contlived and enforced a ruthless
system of proecription andl disfranchisement,
based on difference of political opinion. If
to.-morrow the blacks of the South should
join the Democratic party, and the white,
should become Republicans, to-morrow ('on
gress would demand the enfranchisement of
tl:e whites and the disfranchisement of the
lint hs. This course would necessarily follow
from the logic of radicallsm. The funds
mental principle is that " loyalty" must I.e
protected, even if the protection of " yalty "
ri quires the suppression of " disloyalty."
Ilut, according to the radical theory,
the test of "lo03alty " is adhesion to the
Republican party, and the test of "dis
loyalty " is opposition to the lRepublican
party. Gov. Frown, for instance, :although
he was once a heretic deserving of condigun
punishment, was recognized as an Apostle at
Chicago, after he joined the radicals. The
New York Tribune, which vigorously sq,
ports the disfranchisement of Southern
whites, petitions plaintively for the rehabili
tation of those Southern whites who announce
their intention to vote the Republican ticket.
Congress excludes Mr. John Young Brown,
of Kentucky, because he once thought that
his State ought not to assist in the war on the
South; but joyfully admits and fraternizes
with Mr. Stokes, who denounced Lincoln as a
tyrant and a usurper.
The Black Crook Constitution of the State
of Louisiana disfranchises certain persons
who took part in the war on the Confederate
side; but restores them to political rights it
they have " aided in reconstruction "-in
other words, if they have joined the radwil
party, and thus given some assurance that
they will vote the radical ticket. These facts
of policy and conduct have already greatly
weakened the hold of the Republican party
on the popular mind of the country; and the
extraordinary inconsistency of the Chicago
platform, in announcing tno idifferent and in
consistent rules for the tre atment of the suf
frage question, must complete the ruin of the
RADICAL RESPONSIBILITY FOR MEXICO.
It may look, at first glance, like a far-fetchedl
propIosition to say that the piresent horrible
state of things in Mexico is chargeable to the
piredominance of radical policy in the gov
ernment of the Unitedl States. The accusa
tion, nevertheless, is one which history will
sustain upon the basis of incontrovertible
ficts. Everybody knows that the French
were not expelled froni Mexico by the IMex;
c:an nation or by any faction of Mxicans.
EI:vt rlody kniiows that their witlhdraw.l, and
the conse-l.lent downt:il of Maxiniulhan, were

lart of the United Stltes. Everybody kso;ws
that it was the invisible arm of this power
ahhch cleared the way for .larel, the nini
nal head of a phantom republi, and for uiiu
versal anarchy and blootdsh.d, as the nre-l:
condition of Mexico. But w'hen tlis event

aho were concerned in the i"-ce and prnor,-s
of that country--in the interest of Mexico

visable on our an account. Th- j,,i ias a
bigger and more costly one than we could
well nndertake, under the circumstances. We
had diffliculties enough of our own,
and could not aiord external com
plications of an equally troublesome charac
tb." leduce these reasons from ginerali
ties nto particulars, and what will be the
plain rnglish of the statement ? Why was
the bumin5s unadvisable, a job too big mand
too costly, "'nder the circumstances ?" What
were the domestic diffcnlties that forbid from
following out tha logic of previous action
with reference to t4e domestic troubles of
Mexico? There was no European power to
oppose or to discourage the proceeding. The
civilized world stood ready, not only to sanc
tion, but to appland it as the only hope of
regenerating Mexaco, and of opening one of
the fairest portions of the globe to useful en
terprise and benefcant progass. Mexico
was prepared to oitr no resistance, physical or
moral, sufficient to eaoe either hesitation or
obstruction. Had military 'occupation been
necessary, an American expedition could
have marched to the Mexican capital and held
it more easily, and cheaply, and quickly, and
with less bloadshed, than the recent English
expedition marched to the capital of Abyssinia
and captured it. If we tarn to the interior of
the United States, we find that the Southern
portion of it, which had been for four years
the seat of war and devastation, was then in
a state of profound peace, and in a mood of
submission to the authority of the federal
government so implicit and unqualified as
not to be disturbed by a thought or a dream
of revolt in any form or in any contingency.
How, then, explain the preoccupation with
domestic difficulties that has tied the hands of
the government at Washington when called to
consider the gravest phase which the Mexican
question has ever assumed? 'The South was
not a source of such difficulties, to be sure;
but her helpless situation was made the
occasion for engendering them to suit the
I urposes of the radical faction, unfortunately
p,redominant at Washington, and which can
not live out of the atmosphere of revolution,
conspiracy and nascent or flagrant civil war.
The South was submissive and peaceful, to
be sure; but there was war against her in the
hearts of that faction, and it has been waged
to the present mouojet by the legislation of
the radIcal majority in Congress. Though
altogether unilateral, this war has been main
tained with an army of fifty thousand men,
and at a coist to the material interest of the
coiutr., outside of military expenses, ten
times greater than would be the reasonable
expenditures on oi',uut of the military occu
pation of a dozen MJxicos. In tine,, thie radi
cals have been too much preoccupied with
i ittating, in respect to domcstic policy in the
United States, the political banditti of Mexico.
to pay attention to the horrors of Mexican
anarchy; too much nbsorbed in squandering
upon their own lusts, and follies and fanat
icisms, the tealtii of their own country, to
think of restoring the prosperity of any other.
