Strike out the first part of article 1.1
of the constitution of 1878, which reads i
" A university shall be established and
maintained in the city of New Orleans.
It shall be composed of a law, a medical
and collegiate department, each with alt:
propriate faculties. The General Assent
bly shall provide by law for its organiza
tion and meutenance;" and insert :
"The university shall be nmaintained. It
shall be composed of a law, a medical andi
an academical department, and such olth
cr departments as may ble established hb.
law, each with appropriate faculties:
prorided. that the law anid medical depart -
muents already organized shall continui,
in the city ot New Orleans, anid the ac:
deotical and other departments may 1,6
located elsewhere in the State."
A SPLENDED SUGGESTION;
In Dir. DennitL's Agricultural
column of the N. O. Picayune wv:
find the following admirable sug;
gestion :
In these times of poverty in the:
South few that have hearts to feet
for the distresses of the large num
bers who are suffering by the epi -
demic have money to send to lthe
distressed in those cities. W..
have a suggestion to make whichi
may d3 much good, and we 'op(r
the benevolent who can will act
upon it. No money necded in thii
case. In Southern Louisiana there
are innumerable orange trees;
and many children and young la
dies. These young ladies and
children, and older persons, could
gather million. of orange leaves,
put them in paper bags, holding
two, or three, or more quarts, and
direct them to the yellow fever
patients of Grenada, or Vicksburg.
or Canton, Port Gibson, 4Memphis,
New Orleans. Thousands of suclh
bags could be lorwarded to the
Howards of New Orleans, who,
would send them where most need
ed at no cost in money to aoy one.
Who will send the most and the
soonert ~
A month and more ago-takingi
time by the forelock, as we
thought-we ordered from St. Lou
is, a supply of paper for four
months. The yellow fever was not
then talked of. When the excite
ment began, we relied upon getting
paper through from New Orleans,
New Orlcans was closed, :nd then
we turned to Vicksburg. Commu
nication was stopped with Viclks
burg, and then we learned that the
paper ordered from St. Louis had
been landed at Vicksburg by the
City of Helena.
Immediately we telegraphed to
the editor of the Shreveport Stand
ard to send us some paper by the
Monroe and Shreveport stage.
Yesterday we learned that the
Monroe stage is not permitted to
cross Red river and enter Shrove
port. It is highly probable, there
fore, that we will not issue a paper
next week, as we have not a dozen
quires left, and unless we can'
smuggle some paper through the
quarantine the Teleraph will dis
appear until the next killing frost.
