the General Assembly, "as soon as
it is within his power to do so, to
protest against the high-handed
and unparaleledfproccedings on the
part of those who fill the liigh-pfa-ces

Hut on the other hand, should
he fail to do so, it is none the less
tho duty of the members . of the
Legislature to do as their kindred
bodies in other States have done,
and show to the American people
where North Carolina, in her rep
resentalive capacity, stands upon
questions involving the constitu

that she holds dear the sacredness
of Republican Institutions, guaran

Let the protest be sent up.
Eadical Voices on the Louisana
Outrage. Rupture in tho Cabinet
Probable. . - ....
The probability of a rupture of
the Cabinet of President Grant .has
become a subject of common disw
cussioa in Washington, and such an
event is strongly foreshadowed in the
dispatches from the capital in the
last few days. Whether 'the,. cur
rent reports are true or not, it is a
cause for satisfaction that the ab
lest and most respected members of
! the Cabinet are not willing to share
in tho President's approval of the
j recent unconstitutional proceedings
in Xcw Orleans, nor of the blood
thirsty policy recommended by
Gen. Sheridan for the pettlement of
the Louisiana troubles. These
gentlemen may rest assured that the
country is on their side.
In the mean time the latest re
ports Ave have been able to see give
evidence that every effort will be
made to prevent the threatened
breach, tut it is by no means certain
that in the case of Secretary Fish
it will be successful. The Presi
dent is at work upon a long message
in defense of his Louisana policy.
There was a time when Gen. Grant
says he had no policy to enforce
against the will of the people; but
now it appears 'the Presidont wilt
not 'back down,' although the whole
country is against him." The 2W
lime asks arc Secretaries Fish and
Bristow end Postmaster-General
Jewell determined to follow him
and share his burden of popular in
dignation to the verv lasi ?
We append opinions of mem
bers of the Cabinet and voices from
other eminent Radical dignitaries :
'I will not say a word on the
sulject.' Secretary Belknap, of
Grant's oicn Cabinet.
'The Despatch sent to General
Sheridan by the Secrstary of War
saying that the President and the
Cabinet approved of his course was"
never seen by me until I saw it in
the newspapers, and I had not been
called on, therefore, to approve or
disapprove of it.' Statement of
Secretary of the Treasury Bristow,
of Grant s own Cabinet.
f , , tit
I was not consulted, nor did I
see before they were sent the two
despatches of the Secretary of War
to General Sheridan, saying that
the President and all tho Cabinet
approved of his proceedings. I
ncer heard of nor saw either until
they where shown me in the news
papers. Statement of Hamilton
'. ot Grant s own Cabinet. ' ' '
Vice President Wilson did n6t
w'sh to inake an7 statement at this
time. Mle does not attempt, how
over, to conceal his oninion. Hp
deprecates the situation in which
the party and the Administration
are placed by the recent oceorrcn-
ces, and tnniKs tnat a grave mis
take has been made. Opinion of
Henry Wilson, V v:e President of
tne United States.
i!e said that he was unable to
justify the nction of troops in New
Orleans in ejecting from the State
House certain persons claiming to
he members of the House, who were
pointed out to the officer in charge
ot the troops as the persons who
Miould be removed. lie thought it
would have been better in every
way that the democrats should have
h ei the house, whether right or
wrong, than that the military should
have intetierred m any manner m
the organization. He was unable
to sustain, unon any theory, tho ii sr.
, i j j i
. j A the military that had been made.
. ! Opinion of Mr. Dawes, lcader of
i the republican Jlouse of Revrezen-
'I do noi doubt tho legal right of
the President to send troops into
tny tate; hut 1 view with apprc-
oii Tiaicte 1 '' hension any armed interference by
)t ::, -.ilsu, li0 Executive even of a State t
( !,.,. ,!,.,;.' j disperse a legislative body if it has
' K ! net, by violence toward other .citi
1 zens, become a mob. I am no law
yer ; but I had supposed that a
legislature is the sole judge . of the
rights and qualifications of its mem
bers, and that redress for its action
must be sought through the judicial
rather than from the Executive de
partment of the government. I
had supposed that the connection of
t!ie Chief Executive of a State Trith
egislative branch of a State
as to approve or disapprove its
i 'he i rr .
master General Jeivell, of Grant's
Attorney General Williams favors
our correspondent with the wise
statement that lie has as yet 'no
precise orofEcial information in re
gard to tbe alleged interference
with the Legislature.'. This is the
same wise man who on a former
memorable occasion warned a com
mittee from New Orleans that it
would be useless for them to give
him any information, as his mind
was already made up. N. Y.
It is a kind of hand-tc-mouth
policy which President MacMahon
now' follows. All his efforts to
secure a ministry from the ma
jority which recently opposed him
in the Assembly having proved
unavailing, he has concluded to re
tain his present Cabinet until he is
again defeated. What he will then
do we are not told; but it would be
easy to tell him to what policy he
ought to commit himself. English
politicians think that a Dissolution
of the Assembly is now as much a
matter of advantage to him as it is
to the French nation..
We know very little about French
politics, but arc disposed to endorse
any opinion coming from Glad
stone if that Statesman is among
those who so regard a Dissolution
Mr. Butler, of Massachusett, has
introduced a bill for a new election
in Louisana. It occurs to us that
the mere introduction of such a bill
is a striking comment upon th
success of the Radical party in re
constructing the South. Recon
struction, if we understand the
term, is one of the things to be
pointed at with pride. But what
was the matter with the last elec
tion ? Probably Mr. Butler wonts
to keep trying it over till a result
satisfactory to the Administration
is reached. "We patiently await
to see what disposition Congio-ss
will make of the milter which has
so arc-used the indignation of the
whole people. Cisarism or no
Cresarism is the issue.
The ' Washington Republican,
Grant's organ, which claims that
Grant can do no wrong, sees the
disastrous results that will follow
the recent Federa1 outrage in Louii
siana, and thus endeavors to excuse
its party and to throw the blame
clse-where than where it belongs.
Says that paper :
'Additional and haore accurate
information frem New Orleans de
velops the fact that the Democrats
themselves deliberately planned to
have 'the troops called into the
State house' on Monday last. Their
object was, according to the New
Orleans correspondent of the Cin
cinnati Gazette, to gain a point
'against Republicanism in 1876.'
In other words, they desired a con
dition of affairs which required the
interference of the General Govern
ment, and then to appeal to the
Country on account of that interfer
ence, characterizing it as tyrannical
This will not do, Mr. Itepiillican,
says ; the Raleigh AWs. The
wrong ha$ been too flagrant and too
far -reaching in its effects upon the
country to be set aside under any
such flimsy excuses. The whole
country has been outraged, aud the
fact will not out.
Having . demonstrated by hi3
banditti dispatch the- calmness and
good judgment with which he could
describe afiairs of which he profess
ed personal knowledge, Gen. Sherh
dan now undertakes the part of i
historian, and gives a long account
of things of which he has no knowl
edge, save such as the Kellogg party
have abundantly supplied him.
Those who regarded the banditti
dispatch as a good specimen of fair
reporting will now be ready to ac
cept Gen. Sheridan as a historian.
Others will prefer to depend on the
dispatches which they received bo
fore Gen. Sheridan arrived.
Recent dispatches say Butler will
force the Civil Rights bill to an
issue on Monday.
Rip on General. YTou have rip
ped yourself out of Congress, and
will soon, we hope, rip Radicalism
out of the Country, you are just
the man to do such a good thing.
B.vsditti ! That's what Sheridan
calia them. - The best blood of Loui'
biana, Alabama and Mississippi ! It's
wealth, intelligent and v-orth.
What do we keep a military school
for at West point, if not to educate
gentlemen in tbe profession of arms ?
And this Sheridan this desolator of
the fair Valley of Virginia barn
burner and hen-roost robber this
hargman of Louisiana is one of the
Shkrtdak. This brave and accom
plished soldier, enviably distinguish
ed for his high qualifications as a
captain in the field,' &nd unenviably
notorious lor the savage instincts that
so sadly mar his military fame, ap
pears to be: proud of his pre-eminence
in the American army as a merciless
persecutor of the citizens of his coun
