NlV ORLEANS, April 1.-Gov.
Hamilton, of Texas, made a speech at
Austin recently, in which he opposed
spme ordinances passed by the Conven
tion as not being Republiean or meeting
the necessary demand made. They had
Passed but one ordinance which accord
fully with the President's policy, and
that Was declaring the war debt null
aild void. He appealed from the ac
tion of the- Convention to the people.
The' Convention had passed an ordi
nance exemptirg all persons who, under
authority of civil or military power, had
inflicted in.jury upon persons during the
war from being .held accountable, such
an ordinance would not and should not
shield them. He called upon the loyal
people of the State to work together.
He believed provisions should be made
to admit the negro'to vote if he becani
elevated and came up to a certain stan
dard. The Convention had refused to
give the blacks any quota of the school
fund, or make any provision for their
education. They had, however, boen
taxed to assist the whites in sending
their children to school. He intended
to announce to the people those who
had worked against the interest of the

as ever, makes the following sensible
remarks in relation to what constitutes
"Wo would confess'o'urselves under
obligations to any one competent to in
form us who would tell us in what loy.
alty consist, and to whom fealty is due.
Unless the teachings of the greatest
statesmen ofthe country were wrong,
there can be no allegiance due from i
citizen of the United States to any per.
son, but only to the Constitution of the
United States, and that loyalty consists
solely-in obedience to the laws, and res
pect and reverence for the Constitution
of the United States, and secondly, to
the Constitution anq laws of whichever
of the several States any one may
chance to reside in.
"Such, at least, are our opinions upon
this point, and we are unaware of any
constitutional . provision which makes it
necessary to curse.rebels-in order to es.
tablish our own loyalty. In point of
fact, we deny~ that there are now any~
rebels. Certqinly those who engaged
in the rebellion, bdt yvho acknowledged
its defeat, and are now using every en
deavor to sho* themiselves good citizons,
are not rebek, and, if they have done
wrong previotiely, it wvould certainly bo
more sensible to encourage them in -their
present wel-Joiog than to berate them
for their for er errors. .
