THE LOTTERY (U: FS'TIO..
Some of our country trethren of the
anti-administration persuasion charge
that S. D. McEnery is thl candidate of
the Louisiana State Lottery Company;
but the Picayune as we said last week
does not do it, and is not going to.
Why? Because it cannot do so with
out either at least indirectly attacking
the Lottery Company, or endorsing
McEnery-and it i., not going to do
either. That Mel.nery has" friends of
the lottery among his supporters we
will not deny; but we do assert-and
challenge the Picayune to deny it
that there are lottery men among the
combinationists-the ( )gden men,
Nicholls men or whatever they call
themselves-and now what have our
country brothers to say ?-ltiercland
B.( '(co0l.
Say? They will accept IIoward's
double-column advertisement and at
less rates than they will charge their
own merchants or -chouls, and will
purchase lottery tickets, perhaps on the
sly. If there bhe any one ,f them who
will not, we here plehdge the T'I':it:

The To:Ia.:LuiAmi was undoubtedly.
liut Gov. McEnery, voting on a tic
vto in the Senate, on the question of
increa-ing the number of lotteries
illimitably, voted nay, because, as he
stated, a contrary vote would neces
sitate an extra session of the legislature,
Swhich he,.no less than the people, did
not desire to see called. There are
thouulaids of good people in the State,
who may not now be supporting him,
who yet will maintain that he did
right from another reason, namely,
that one lottery was one more than
enough, and two would nave been:un
endurablle. And the TElI,:Gca..'i is
not sure but what it erred in sup
porting an augmentation of the
number of lotteries, since just at this
time, the influence of one becomes
matter of such moment, whereas two,
or ten as there would have been,
would not have left us a printer's quad
to space out this line.
There may be, and no doubt is, some
real virtuous supposition to (G'"). 31e
Euery because of his opposed willing
ness to see the monopoly teature of the
Howard lottery maintained ; but we
undertake to say that if the people
will elect members of the legislature
who will enact a law abolishing that
concern, it will be returned approved
by MclEery within ten minutes after
the Act is enrolled. But the trouble
has been and the truth has been-a5 it
was in the Constitutional Convention
the people themselves seem to be utter
ly unable to choose from among them,
selves mene with sufficient manhood or
utelligence to represent 1them, and to
give eif'ctual force to their wishe:s.
A thundering lot of absurdity it
wOtltl elnM to he to talk of eleetilng
one man in a whole State to oppose any
lileaure w hatever, whlen the lpeople of
a single lharislh out of the i ay-eight
comprising the State cannot clearly uand
explicity carry out their purposes.
