No enlightened, no southern state, can ac- m

contained-nor will we, under any circum- ti'
stances, light under its banner. We are not to
a Catholic--we were raised a protestant-but PE
may this right arm wither, before we endeavor Pt
to strike one blow at a constitutional right In
guaranteed to a catholic as well as ourself.- ti
It will not do to tell us that no attempt Is
made to render this test as against Cathollcs t~
alone. Why did the convention refuse our to
delegates a seatf-because our ritual is found- a
ed ona liberal-a constitutional basisl-and p4
- because we had accredited some Catholic gun- ro
tlemen of American birth--gentlemen who have
met on a common platform-the Constitution tt
I -and repudiate every and any instrument that
would be set up against it as a superior.

son of the mistaken people who have assis
ted in rearing up in our midst this worse
than Lernean hydra, with its many devour
ing heads sapping and feeding upon the
most sacred principles of religion and equal
rights. We repeat that the Exponent and
Bee have acted up to what the good of our
country demands from every individual in
these days of danger; when folly and ab
surdity shine out so conspicuously in the
political firmament. But why did they not
go. further? Why have they spared those
delegates from Louisiana who were admit
ted and took their seats in the Philadelphia
Convention, as represeptatives from this
State, when they must have known that the
people who sent them were averse to the
sentiments contained in the platform they
adopted? Why do they nothold up to pub.
lie reprobation those individuals who took
their seats with a body of men who refused
to receive in fellowship a number of the
first citizens of Louisiana, because they rep
resented in their persons the religions faith
that their sires for ages had taught them to
venerate and adore? Why, we ask, were
those delegates spared by our indignant
contemporaries? Did not the fact of their
holding their seats in the Convention until
it adjourned give an applied sanction to
the action of that body in xcluding their
colleagues from their seats? In all the pro.
ceedings of the Convention that have come
to light we looked in vain for a letter from
Mears, Bunch and Hardy agains this out
rage. They observed an ominous silence
throughout, and in no instance, as we have
seen, did they raise their voices in remon
strance against the exclusion. Who klow*
but they were instrumental in consutpmatJng
the foul wrong? Does the Bee or Elponent.
