truthful history of that remarkable body that
has been or will bo written. TTaV commend
It to the careful attention of our readers.
mAMAClIUHF.TTH WHEELING IN
Designing politicians, in Congress and out,
have .stated, reiterated, and Insisted that a
corporal's guard of men could not be found
in alt Massachusetts who were in favor of
sustainingthe National Administration in Its
pcjljcy. This is true as the "radicals" have
been pleased to represent "Tin Presidkit's
policy," to wit: that he is in favor of admit
ting rebels into Congress; that he Is in favor
of pardoning all rebels, from Jew. Davis
down; that he Is opposed to giving every
legal protection in his power to the Trced
men; and that he is against granting suffrage
to intelligent, patriotic, and enterprising
colored men of the District of Columbia. To
support such a policy a "corporal's guard"
ol men could not bo found in Massachusetts.
Hut fAe very rewrss of the radicals' syste
matic statement, as rehearsed above, is (rue;
and in Massachusetts there are good men
the noblest sons of the old Bay State her
statesmen, soldiers, lawyers, merchants, ora
tors, and editors who sustain such a policy;
and such Is the policy of the Administration,
soma of the leading doctrines of which are
carefully laid down in the national Union
call for the Philadelphia Convention.
Already the tocsin has been sounded. The
names of the Adamses "noble sons of noble
sires" are foremost on the list. In Western
Massachusetts the Asiixcxs, the Alvords,
the Wrights, the Bowleses, the Stowes,
and others, are in the van. In Middle
Massachusetts we have the gallant Dt
iKna, who, while he was leading his
men to victory before Richmond two
years ago, was run as an independent con
servative Republican candidate tor Governor
of Massachusetts, and polled teventy-tico
thousand votes! lie ia a host in himself. lie
fonght to save the Union, not to divide It
"With , Tin Pbeside.it he believes In the lojal
representation of every State. At the "heart
of tho Commonwealth" there are also the
Lixcouts, an imperishable and glorious
name, made brighter by the irallantrv of Col,
Lincoln in the late war. In Boston fend vi
cinity there is 4 host of faithful workers
the Ccrtrisis, the TnoMAsnt, the Ujtos, the
Halls, the Paiiiu, tho Schoulebc, the
Williamscs, the IIudhoxs, tho Cuildsrs, the
McGabtxeta, tho Swim, the Thai.sh, the
Gordovs, the Kihas, the Andrews, and a
rank and file that will startle the Wilsoxs
and Scmxers by their mighty tread in No
vember next. In Kastero Massachusetts, the
CociaswELLs, the Davises, tho Cl-siirxa", the
C'olhvs, the Morsses, the Vent, the Chases,
the Ulovers, the Browms, and others. On
the Cape, the Davises, Days, Swifts, and a
gallant column of supporters. In Southern
Massachusetts we hear the, names of Iln
rixurov, .Pjiikci, the Ides-, the LovEaivas,
the Coichfs, Ac., &c, 4c.
The Springfield Republican, in Western
Massachusetts; the Newburyport, Herald
and Gloucester Telegraph, in Lastcrn Massa-
chusctts; the Yarmouth Register, on the
Cape; the Taunton Gazette, in Southern
Massachusetts, and the Herald and Commer
cial, in J'oston, are all battling for tho right
against the rColutlonary schemes of the
radicals, and do not couH'cnanco the infamous
misrepresentations that aro .? studiously
put forth in the radical newspapers a"'113'
With this showing we have no doubt that
Massachusetts will send into the Philadel
phia Convention a set of conservative patri
otic delegates that will be equal in ability to
any other delegation that may be present.
THE PRESIDENT AND THE NEW
The venomous reptiles who have seized
upon tho New Orleans riot as a weapon with
which to strike at The President are the
same kind of persons who participated in the
revolutionary work, in this very city, of rc
' calling the Louisiana convention of 18C I as
a means for the accomplishment of their un
constitutional and illegitimate designs.
Homo of them, according to reports, have
paid dearly for their folly.
So far as the conduct of the military au
thorities was concerned, we are of the opinion
that if Gen. Baird had performed his whole
duty, he would not have left the police, com
posed as they are now entirely of ex-rebels,
to iuell the riot before appearing on the
ground with his troops.
Official reports state the number of killed
to be only thirty-men instead of one hundred
and ninety-fie, as originally reported, ap
parently from a disposition to exaggerate the
details of the whole affair.

A RKVIKW OF THE LATE POLITI
CAL HISTORY OF LOUINIANA.
Waibiiotob, D. 0 , Ang, 2, 1868.
lYiiae &llfrqfte JrarfoiMl Jrqmaftaia;
Tho recent bloody and inhuman tragedy
in .New Orleans adds another scarlet infamy
to the career of a city already stained by tho
frequency and ferocity of its riots. Two
communications havo appeared In ) our paper
concerning he late terrlblo transactions in
thlt city, and tho events which led to them.
Without denying tho main facts contained
in the letter of Mr. Kim, of New Orleans, I
do not regard Its temper or tone aa judicious,
and consider Its statements of the original
object of the convention of 1864 erroneous,
and its portrayal of the personnel and pecca
dilloes of that body overurawn. Neither can
I fully endorse the inferences of the letter of
tho lion. Mr. Bakes, of Massachusetts, or
his estimate of tho principal victim of the
unhappy melee- of July 30. To vindicate
justice and present tho truth of history, I
feel compelled to relate, from personal ob
servation, the late political events which
have resulted in tbo outbreak of which the
public ia but too familiar.
I accompanied the expedition commanded
by Gen. Babes, which had for its destination
the Department of the Gulf, as an officer of
the United States volunteers, and hare been
cognitant of both the military and civil con
cerns of the Stato of Louisiana. Upon his
assuming command df that department. Gen.
Banks found that the large proportion of the
people of Louisiana, especially those who
represented the planting and property inter
ests, was In sympathy with tho confederacy.
Their relatives were m its armies and their
hopes were for its success. There was, how
ever, an active and decided minority in favor
of our Government Many of these persons
had undoubtedly become converts to the
Union by the potent Influence of the Fed
eral presence and the Fedoral patronage,
but thero were among them men and women
whose lovaltv was cenuine and unfaltering:.
The loyal element was composed, first, of
those who were conservative by their nature
and convictions, represented by such men as
Christian Roselibs and J. Ad Rozier and
Judge E. II. Dorell; second, those who had
developed their realty during the military
administration of Gen. Butler, represented
by Tuoa. J. Dukant and Gov. IIaiix; and
thirdly, the civilian accompaniment to tho
army, which occupied the prmclpal places in
tne customs ana tne treasury ami me posiai
departments, mainly from the North, all of
them appointees and political friends of tho
then Secretary of the Treasury, the ITon. S.
Tho prevailing and pertinent foreign criti
cism against the chances of permanent Fed
eral success was the utter absence of any
general or significant loyal element in tho
South. It wu Mid that though the armies
of this nation held the territory of tho South,
there was no evidence of any disposition on
the part of j,ta people to return to its alle
giance', Two years of not very successful
warfare; and a total failure to Jucover any
heariv Union sentiment in the South, gave
fearful weight to this unpromising (act. It
was among the chief Jel' Ol til good and
great-hearted President Lincolx to wlu "l0
Southern people back to the old Govern
ment It wa his holy ambition that the
work of suppressing the rebellion, and re
constructing the civil, and favorably Impress
ing the social society of the South, should
go hand in band. It was by the imperative
orders of Mr. Liicoi x oonveying full powers
that Oen. Banes instituted tho proceedings
which led to the reorganization of Louisiana
The method adopted was the convocation of
the convention of 1864, tho solo object of
which was to framo a constitution which
should acknowledge absolute responsibility
to the national Government and adapt its
provisions to the results of tho war. That
convention met with the sternest opposition
from the clement headed by Hr.Di'RAXT and
the men whe had held prominent official po
sitions during tho administration of Gen.
Bctler, from tha custom-house and Treas
ury "wing," with a few exceptions, and from
the conservative loyal element, always timid,
not daring enough to f enturo in this move
ment Mr. Uosemnb was elected a member of
the convention, but refused to sit. The man of
most decided prominence and marked charac
ter who participated In its deliberations was E.
II. Dorf.li, Judge, of the United States Dis
trict Court Judge Direll graduated from
Harvard Collece: was a lawer of npenlmr
ability; a scholar of ripe culture; a man of
coraprenensive rninu, wno unuerstoou uotu
the dignity of events and tho duties of the
times better than any 'other citizen with
whom we met in that State. Ho had been
a resident for many years of tho State, and
understood its people thoroughly. To him
the convention owes Its sanation as a de
liberative body, and the constitution is in
debted to him for its chief features; its value
as an organic act; and its grammatical re
spectability. His principal assistants in
these particulars wero Col. Thorpe, a gen
tleman of education and an author of no
mean repute, and Messrs. SiiAty and Fish,
who had been teachers in the public schools
of tho city. And with these exceptions there
were few who had ever held any legislative
positions before, and in ordinary circum
stances would never be likely to hold them.
They were the best material that could be
procured for the exigency, and though rating
their services at the exorbitant sum of eight
dollars per diem, and prolonging tl,o session
of this convention until tho treasury was
barren; j et os Ihey had in these part'rulars
many precedents in the legislative examples
of older States, and a most peerless Imitation
ui !,l present "historic" Congress, wo do not
think it Tiilr ,r censure too severely tho con
vention of 1864 for tic!: proclivities in tho
direction of plunder. It 'as an earnest and
a loyal convention, and did one thing which
leaves no ground for dispute. It framed a
constitution of most unquestionable alue,
inferior in worth and progress to no other in
the land, and which, first of the Southern
States, Ignored the heresy of secession, and
recognized the extinction of human slavery
Early in the deliberations of that conven
tion an ordinance was passed prohibiting ne
groes from ever exercising the right of sut
fraue. or of holding; offices of trust or honor.
Tho rote on this proposition was nearly
unanimous. It met with the energetic dis
sent of General Bakes, who remonstrated
against its passage, and advised earnestly
that some recognition of franchise for the
blacks might go into the constitution. This
as not done; out the whole question of reg
ulating franchise was left to the Legislature
under the constitution. Tho convention
neither enfranchised the blacks, or disfran
chised the whites ho co-operated In the re
bellion. The reason for this was, that Presi
dential amnesty had been granted to all who
would take oath to obey the Government,
and acqu esce in the slavery proclamation;
and it was then supposed that the whole
Stato would soon be under the Federal con
trol, and the loyal population would be
largely augmented. At that time, though in
actual war, under Abraham Likcoih, It was
regarded as the highest advantage to civili
zation in general, and the State in particular,-
to induce rjoutnern people io resume tneir
national citizenship: and the convention, by
the counsel of Its best and ablest friends,
wisely debarred none from its priceless priv.

Hahn was elected Governor of that Stato.
and J; Madihon Wells was chosen Lien-
tenant Governor. Wills was selected be
cause he was from the Interior, and was a
planter.. For Initiating the reorganization of
Louisiana President Lincoln received abuse,
which for malignancy and venom has' had
no equal, save that which has been heaped
upon his successor for the continuation of
the same policy. For carrying tho project
into effect General Banks invoked an oppo
sition which singled him out as a target for
misrepresentation and the most unjustifiable
comment. The foulest slanders ever uttered
by human tongues, and tho batteries of the
press, shotted with falsehoods and libels, was
poured upon the heads of these men. This
warfare was not directed against the consti
tution of Louisiana itself, for that was con
ceded to be faultless as an organic act; but
tho denunciation was against its military
origin, and its pretence in being tho act of
the people of that State. Mr. Sumner said
of it that it was a "seven months' abortion,"
ushered into being at the point of tha bay
onet by a Massachusetts General, and was
not the work of the peoplo of tho State.
Other Senators called It a "usurpation," a
creation oP'military despotism," and likened
its imposition upon the people of Louisiana
to tho iniquitous attempt to force upon tho
people of Kansas the abominable Lecompton
constitution. But every opponent admitted
at that time that if the constitution had been
made or accepted by a majority of the inhab
itants of Louisiana that nothing would have
been more gratifying than its recognition.
After framing the constitution, the Conren
tien'adjourned, giving authority to the presi
dent to rcconvcnce the Convention in case
of necessity, .'his was understood then, by
every member of that body, to mean that, in
case tne constitution snouiu do rejected, tne
convention might reassemble to construct
another to bo passed upon by the people.
That, and no other, was the intent of the
authority conveyed to tho presiding officer.
When the constitution was ratified, tno work
of tho convention was completed, and that
body exnlred beyond the nossibthtv of lec-al
resurrection. After holding the office of
uovemor nearly one year, Mr. hahn was
chosen Senator bf the Legislature, and re
signed his gubernatorial position. Hero com
mences the difficulties which culminated a
few days since In a frightful riot At the
time of Gov, IIaun's resignation, his personal
and political friends filled tho offices of the
State. Tho judiciary, the parish offices, the
police, indeed every plaeo was occupied by
men who had participated in tho movement
for a free State. From September, 1864, to
April, 1865, Gen. Banks, having been ordered
North, was absent from the State, and his

tentionally or not, ho was assisted by all tho
military power of the Department; to vacate
every person identified with the IIaun ad
ministration, and place his own friends in
power and to create a " Wn ls " party; and
to ostracise all "new comers" who had any
share in the Government, maintaining, in. his
own language, "that Louisiana was for Louls
ianians." Through the co-operation of Gen.
IIurlburt, he first removed Mayor IIott,
tho personal friend and appomteo of Gen.
Hanks; then tho polico went; then the sheriff;
in one word, all the principal incumbents.
Wounded Union soldiers were ruthlessly dis
charged; pur excellence Union men were in
discriminately banished from place and per
sons of doubtful loyalty Installed; the na
tionalization of the schools was paralyzed;
and when Gen. Banks returned In April,
1865, to rcassuino command, ho found the
Union men of his persuasion in a stato of
grief, suffering the hardships or removal from
office, and many desert ing persons out of
cmplo)incnt and in want, lie found that
tho abdication of Gov. IIaiix had resulted in
tho expulsion of the party that elevated him
to power; and we shall net er forget the ter
rible severity of condemnation mth which he
denounced that individual for acating the
power which had been put into his hands at
the cost of such outlays of treasure and
All efforts on the part of Gen. Banks to
rectify tnatters were neutralized by Gen.
Canbt, to whom he was obliged to report as
superior officer. Wpllr, among other high
handed and illegal acts, forcibly ejected
from office the Auditor of the State, Dr. A.
P. Dostie, (killed in the late riot,) because
in his official capacity he was about to coin
menco legal proceedings which would com
pel the removal of Wells from the governor
ship. By the laws of the Stato ho was dis
qualified. Some cars previous bo hqd been
sheriff of ono of the parishes and had delayed
in making his return of moneys, and in the
Auditor's b'ooks there stood against his name
quito a large deficit. This, according to the
statutes of Louisiana, happened to bo ground
of removal. Dr. Dostie being about to en
force tbo statutes, was put out of office by

confederate Louisianlans. Weils courted
and fawned them, at tho exclusion and per
secution of tho IIaun Union men. Theso
men were exceedingly bitter against Wells
for bitraj ing them, and equally moroso to
wards Hahn for deserting his post and leav
ing them to the tender mercies of his heart
less successor. There being no disquahf) Ing
prof Ision in tho State constitution, at the
election in October tho returned Loulsian
ians who had been in the confederate army
voted, and though choosing Wells for Gov
ernor, tho remainder of the ticket was made
up of their own friends, who wcro clothed
with authority. During tho winter the city
also passed by election into the hands of
those who bad come back and who had or
ganized politically as the Democratic party,
and outnumbered those who rallied as con
servatives or Unionists. At the accession of
tho Democrats tho "Weli s" incumbents had
to take their turn at retiring, and were
obliged to make way for tho winners.
The returned confederates not only ac
cepted the general situation, but also ac
cepted the Constitution of 1864, and came
Into power under it. They abide by it. They
have not seen fit jet to amend It, although it
provides the methods, of alteration. They
have come into power under It, and though
it had a military origin, and is of Yankee
construction, they havetakentoitvery kindly.
Tba exodus of tho "Wells" men from office
swelled the ranks of the "outs," and joining
now with the IIaun men, they formed quite
aeyespectable party In numbers. They bad
been voted out of office under their own con.
stitution, but they were dissatisfied. It was
then discerned that the only way they could
ever get back Into office would be to permit

arrangement In which the negroes could do

would regain their lost estates. They sud

After Qor. Ilia, who had been In Washington
do ring tho winter operating with tho radicals, found
tint Congress did not loteadto demand suffrage u
a condition of admission for the Southern States,
be returned to the South; and it wu soon after
his arrival thero that tho scheme to rteonreno
tbo Conreutlon of 18M wu agitated. By corre
spondence with tho radical leaders of tho North,
and tn personal consultation with the radical mem
bers of Congress, It wu understood that tbo effort
to reconvene the Convention would bo sustained.
It wu a well-ooncocted and deliberate plan to
preolpttete a rorolutlon and Inaugurate a war of
rues. It wuVeuoned that. If tbo convention wu
held, Its acts would bo regarded by Congress u tho
only expression of loyalty, and 111 government be
sanctioned by them As faring authority. If the
Conreutlon was euppreised by the clflf power It
would strengthen Congress In Its continual resist
ance to the d minion of Louisiana. If It wu In
terfered with by a mob It would tend to Inflame tho
Northern mind against the State, n would help
the radical oauie fa the MI elections. In any view
they saw ajraaUgei, and tbey determined to reJn
roke tbo Qonrention. Tho President (Judge Do
bill,) upon being applied to to do this, refqied to
Issqo the call, denouncing tbo attempt u wholly
without authority. Then, without any legal as

The Coming Election In Pennjlva;
Tho Philadelphia Convention will probably

opponents of radicalism to stand upon. Its

tho destructive radicals, to whatever party
they may hare heretofore bplongcd or may
Tho object of the Convention being to
concentrate the votes of all who are opposed
to the radical party and the measures whsth
are carrying the country to destruction to
rescue the Republic from the hands of those
who, like tha secessionists of 18(51, mean to
destroy the Union it may be presumed
that its platform will be liberal enough for
all conservative men to stand upon.
The people then will go Into the fall elec
tions to sustain their raiNCirLm. The radi
cals who follow Thad. Stevens in his disu
nion course, will vote for candidates who ap
prove of continued disunion or the doctrine
that twenty-dye States may deprive eleven
rjtatespf tneir right of representatiop in Pon

Men who do not disagree in principle upon
present and living issues, can readily unito

agree with them.
In some congressional districts, candidates
will be taken from the Democratic ranks
In others they will be taken from tho Repub

that they are for the Union for sustaining
the right of representation in all the States

In this way tho country may be rescued
