Tim GRAND JURY cQUESTION.-The 58
New Orleans Timesu has the following in l
relation to the grand jury question in
the parish of Orleans:
The Grand Jury of the parish of Or- n
leans, selected from a registry of voters
provided for by the laws of the State of
Louisiana, recently indicted Chas. Jor
gau and Sam.n Nelson, colored men, for tl
Counsel for defence moved to quash
the indictment upon the ground that the
inquest which had found the indictment
had not been chosen in accordance with
the provisions of the acts of Congress
providing for the reconstruction of the
Judge Howe, presiding in the crimin
al court, and before whom this motion
. was made, decided that the Grand Jury
which brought in the bill against Mor
gan and Nelson, was a legal body. This 1
a decision is based upon the ground that
. the laws of the State regulating the ew
e paneling of grand juries has not been
1- affected by the acts of Congress men
e tioned above, and are therefore, still in
. force, and will be in force until altered
a or abolished by the department which is
alone antlhorised under our republicad
r. syEtefn of government. This decision is
e- also supported by the order of the Com
it imanding General, which order stated
ie thant to determine who shall or who shall
not be jurors appertains to the legisla
tive powers of the State.
he The motion to quash the indictment
was, therefore, denied.

FIDELITY.l)esert not your friend in
danger and distress. Too many there P
are in this world whose nttnachlminet to
those they call friends is confined to tlh N
day of their prosperity. As long s g
that conti'lntes, they are, or appear to
be, affectionate and cordial. But as
their friend is uuder a crowd, they begin
to withdraw and separate their interests
from his. In friendship of this sort, the
heart assuredly has never had much
concern. For the greatest true friend- r
ship is constancy in the hour of danger
-adherenco in the season of distrI s.
When your frend is cultivated, then is I
the time openly and boldly to espouse
his cause. When his situation is chau. 1
ged, or misfortunes are fast gathering
around him, then is the time of afford- 1
ing prompt and zealous aid. When
sickness or infirmity occasions him to
be neglected by others, that is the op
portunity which every real friend will
seize of redoubling all the attention
Swhich love suggests. These are the im
portaut duties, the sacred claims of
friendship, which religion and virtue
enforce on every worthy mind. To show
yourselves w-arm in this manner in the
" ause of your friend, commands esteem
even in those who have personal inter
t ests in opposing him. This honorable
zeal of friendship has, In every age, at
