Tba Loni aluna Prot co t.
We have received a copy of this
able document. It covers'very much
the same ground aa the remonstrance
appeal sent forth by our state Cen?
tral Executive Committee. It is a
manly protest against negro rule and
negro tyranny. As the Journal of
"The Louisiana constitution has
the same features of negro suprema?
cy and tyranny as the South Carolina
pattern. All the new Southon; con?
stitutions haye a family resemblance,
proving that they originate from one
or two busy brains at the Washing?
ton headquarters. Every negro
over twenty-one years of age is al?
lowed to vote, while the following
sweeping disfranchisement is leveled
at the whites:
A?Th08e who held office, civil or
military, for one year or more, nuder
the organization styled 'The Confede?
rate States of America;' those who
registered themselves as enemies of
the United States; those who acted
as leaders of guerilla bands during
tho late rob elli on ; those who, in the
advocacy of treason, wrote or pub?
lished newspaper articles or preached
sermons during tho late rebellion;
and those who voted for and Hi'gned
an ordinance of secession in any
State. No person inoluded in these
exceptions shall either vote or hold
office, until he shall have relieved
himself by voluntary writing and
signing a certificate setting forth that
he acknowledges the late rebellion to
have been morally and politically
wrong, and that he regrets any aid
and comfort he may have given it;
and he shall file the certificate in the
office of the Secretary of State, and
it shall be published in the official
"Negro supremacy is further as?
sured by this oath (required to be
taken by officers of militia as well as
'all other officers:'
"ABT. 100. Members of the Gene?
ral Assembly, and all other officers,
before they enter upon the duties of
their offices, shall take the following
oath or affirmation: 'I (A. B.) do
solemnly swear (or affirm) that I ac?
cept the civil and political equality of
all men, and agree not to attempt to
deprive any person or persons on ac?
count of race, color or previous con?
dition, of any political or oivil right,
privilege or immunity enjoyed by
any other class of men. That I will
support the Constitution and laws of
the United States, and the constitu?
tion and laws of this State, and that
I will faithfully and impartially dis?

cumbent on mo as-, according

OniTUARY.-Two continents will
minglo their tears with Virginia as
she bends above the grave of her
young and gifted son, Barbee.
Death has of late years been busy
with the scythe, und many a noble
form has bowed to its gleauing hand.
Has a moro devoted child been
snatched from Virginia's embraco, or
a brighter jewel from her crown than
William lt. Barbee? The artistic
world had already luid at his feet tho
homage ot its admiration. The ?'Co?
quette" and "Fisher Girl" sufficed to
assure the generation iii which he
moved of a genius rare among pro?
fe8sional aspirants. His devotion to
his profession was second, only to
his intense, trusting, child-like'love
of Virginia. His State was to him
his mother.-Petersburg Express.

COTTON CONVENTION.-A Conven?
tion of cotton plantera and manufac?
turers met in Boston on Wednesday.
Amos Lawrence was put in the Chair,
and made a speech, in which he
recited some of the, facts concerning
the production and tho .manufacturo
of cotton, which foreshadowed dis?
aster, he said, to those engaged in
manufacturing. Yet the failures had
been few-tho imruenso profits made
in 1864 giving strength to withstand
losses. There are now 6,400,000
spindles in the United States, which
cost $25 each, or $160,000,000. The
'capital employed to work them is
$80.000,000, or $12.50 per spindle,
making in all $240,000,000-to say
nothing of shops for making machine?
ry and produoing supplies, which
may be estimated at $20,000,000.
Sevon years ago, one-seventh of
the cotton produced in the United
States was manufactured hore. Now,
we manufacture" one-third of the
product. In 1851, the price of cotton
waa 12 cents; in 1864, $1.90; in 1865,
40 cents; and in 1867, 15>? cents per
ponnd. These variations were most
unfavorable; but, as said above, tho
immense gaius of manufacturing of
1864, bolstered up the manufactur?
Mr. Lawrence then gave au expla?
nation of the objects of the associa?
tion, viz: reliable information to the
manufacturer, protection against
unjust legislation, increased capital
to tho cotton grower, and improved
instrumentalities for cultivating und
clearing the crop.
He asserted, what all know to be
true, that tho United States has a
greater capacity for tho production
of cotton than any other country,
and that the markets of Europe could
be regained. He further affirmed
that the heavy staple goods could be
manufactured at the South and on
the Western thoroughfares cheaper
than they could at the North.
To the two classes embraced in this
ootton interest, the chief difficulty
that presents itself, is the abominable
and unconstitutional reconstruction
measures of Congress. The unex?
ampled and mad revolution whioh
has placed tho black slave at one leap
into the political arena as the equal
of the white man, has inflicted an in?
jury upon this cotton interest which
years cannot repair. If manufacturer
and producer would unite in an effort
to redress tho outrage by which this
injury was inflicted, they could
achieve more for their mutual good,
as well as the good of the nation,
than they can in any other way.
THE RULERS OF THE SOUTH.-Let
any one look at the character of tho
white radicul leaders of the South
who have banded tho negroes to?
gether in secret, oath-bound league
organizations, says the Norfolk Day
Boole, who have, without provocation
or decent pretext, arrayed them in
hostility to their former'masters, and
who, in fact, own them body and
soul, and control their every thought,
sentiment and motion. The radica]
party South of tho Potomac-tho
white portion of it, at least-is infi?
nitely meaner, moro unprincipled,
vindictive and brutal, than the same
party ot tho North. Thore its lead?
ers, at least, are men of talent
and of social influence and per?
sonal respectability. Hero, on the
contrary, they are the very scum
and dregs of society. There the hate?
ful and dangerous dement of race
antagonism is absent; here it is a
prevailing and dominant influence.
A few mean, selfish, unscrupulous
white men, having separated them?
selves from their race, and pl need
themselves ut the head of the blacks,
brandish their weapons, and urge
them on to a crusade against the
white race, just as we have recently
seen a few white men of the samo
class leading tho savage Indians
against tho whites, and encouraging
thom in their brutul excesses.
The French Emperor seems to find
it hard to snit his homo critics in
these days. When he makes a po?
litical 'speech, they scout him; when
he avoids polities, they scorn him.
His late speech at Orleans was skill?
fully confined to general topics and
such glorious historical reminiscences
as Joan of Arc, the gallant muid who
shed lustro upon tho nnme of tho
city, To tin's, the Journal des D?bats
says, most unappreciated : "If we
might ask Heaven to guide the rulers
of the world, wo should pray, for our
part, that it might direct them a little
more in conformity with tho line of
A copy of Eliot's Indian Bible, a
work which no living man can read,
was sold at auotion in New York,
recently, for the extraordinary etiin

for a printed book In this country.
MENTAL DEPRrosSIOX.-Mont al div
pression ia & disease of tho nervous sys?
tem, mid of all tho ills flesh is heir to it is
tho one that excites'tho least sympathy.
It is a subject of frequent josts, and is
called by various derisive torms; but, al?
though it is often laughed at, it is not
easy to laugh the patient out of the belief
that his ills are all roal, for it is a real dis?
order-tho general features of which aro
constant fear, anxiety and gloom. Tho
external senses, as well as tho mont ul
faculties, ofton manifest symptoms of de?
rangement. Moise, as of falling water,
and ringing in the ears, arc complained
of, while black specks and fiery sparks
frequently flit before tho vision. Admoni?
tions liko thoso should not bo disregarded,
as they may, if neglected, terminate in
insanity. The seat of the disease is in tho
brain and nervous eyatom, and to control
the malady it is necessary to use a power?
ful tonio and alterative, which will correct
and tono thoso organs without inflaming
the brain. This is the secret cf the suc?
cess of HOSTETTER'S STOMACH BIT?
TERS in cases of this kind, for which it is
thc safest as well as tho best of restora?
In fact, it is the only pure and reliable
tonic stimulant known. Many nostrums,
purporting to be tonics, are puffed up from
timo to timo in the newspapers, but the
sufferer had better let them alono. Hos
tetter's Stomach Bitters has proven itself,
by nu.ny years of trial, to bo in every re?
spect what it is representod to bo.
