t2 The Tariff Bill in Congress has
been indefinitely postponed, which
amounts to its defeat for the present
session. This is a virtual admission
on the part of the Radicals that they
are incapable of coping with the great
financial questions of the day. After
expending their exertions in so ar
ranging the Reconstruction measures as
to outrage the people of the South,
they have exercised their ingenuity in
a Tariff which shall build up New Eng
land interests at the expense of the
hard-working farmers of the West.
But no sooner do they attempt to form
a Tariffthan they discover that their
work will prove a wedge to split the
Radical party. Hence they would ra
ther admit their incompetency to deal
with the Tariff than run the risk of
disrupting the party on the eve of a
general election. The people will,
however, soon call them to an account
for 'their misdeeds.
M The English have recently been
exercised over the murder of English
travellers by Greek brigands, one of
the murdered men being a IFord and
another some kind of an embassador.
Greece has been famous for robbers
and fleas from a very remote antiquity.
Thucydides tells us that the usual sal
utation for all new comers was "pray,
gentlemen, are you pirates." Mr. De
Quincey saysthatjit is some consolation
to a traveller who has been bitten by a
Greek flea to know that it is a regular
classical flea, and that he may be a
descendant of a flea which had bitten
Sophocles, Pericles or Demosthenes.
It would be very poor consolation, we
think, to the late travellers to reflect
that they were murdered by a classical
robber, a descendant perhaps, of one
who had robbed Socrates or Diogenes
(who, by the way, never had anything
to-rob.)
Tn a WESTMINSTER REVIEw.-Wo
are indebted to the Leonard Scott Pub
lishing Company, New York, for the
April number of the Westminster. The
Westminster is a favorite among Re
view readers, its article on "Contem
porary Literature" affording all the in
formation necessary to be known with
regard to the Book World. Among
the able articles in the present number
is the long promised one on the Care
for 'Protitution. Another brings to
light a number of unpublished letters
of Coleridge. The article on "Ameri
can Socialisms" will be read with in
terest on this side of the Atlantic. On
the whole the iumber before us is more
than usually interesting.
la' On Mbnday next occurs the reg
ilae State `lection in Oregon. The
Democrats, from all accounts, are dcn
ASdent of victory. In fact no one, out
.ide of Louisiana, ever hears a Demo
crat speak despondingly of the pros
peets of his party. It is exceedingly
important that the Democrats should
carry the Oregon Legislature ps a Sen
ator is to be elected in place of the
Radical Williams who has so long mis
represented the people of the Pacific
Coast.
- ' The Supreme Courj has come to
the relief of John Ray and his Radical
mulatto copmmittee who got up the
Civil Codes and the Revised Statutes. 1
It has decided that the Criminal Law I
Sdoes not release all the criminals in the I
State because the Legislature did not I
intfend to release them.4 It is rather a 4
good joke in a Court to decide gravely I
what the late Legislature intended.
They do not know themselves what 1
they intended to do, except to rob the I
people of as much money as possible. I
" WThe "Dead Demodracy" have
carried the State of New York at the 4
recent Judiceial election by the enor- I
mous majority of 88,000. The\election ]
has skdwn that no other party in the
State has more than a nominal exis
tence. T'his result gives a most de
lightful earnest that the Democrats I
will sweep the State at the Congres- i
sionel election in the Fall. And yet
we are told that this powerful organi
sation must have no representative in
Louisiana.
W"The young of both sexes should I
not forget the Grand Tournament and
SBall to be given by the young men of
Alexandria. on Friday next. We are
assured that tie riding will be excel- 4
lent, a'number of the best riders in the (

t  IRfHE FOIURTH DISTRIICT.
. The contested election case from
'OR the Fourth Congressional District
has been decided, as we had no
doubt it would be, in favor of the
sip. carpet-bag candidate. No one who
has witnessed the unblushing
y of coolness with which the Radicals
first voted in the other Radical mem
the bers, or sent a fair election back to
the people, could have had'a doubt
has that the Fourth District would
lich share the same fate. Here is a
sent District in which there'was a quiet
Sion election, and a full vote except in
they those parishes where the dumb cat
reat tie the Radicals lead by the nose
ftcr Cook the silly Radical advice to
esas stay away from the polls, Not a
uth, man remained at home on election
y in day except by Radical advice or
ng- connivance. And even if every
the one who did not vote had voted
t.- and voted for Newsham, Judge
brm Ryan would still have been elected
heir by a handsome majority. As it is
the his majority is nearly seven thou- I
ra- sand, Bat thet Radicals, in order I
deal
k of to give Newsham the seat, rejected
ofa the votes of the large Democratic
will parishes until enough were thrown
,unt out to declare Newsham elected.
Well might Mr. Eldridge, of Wis
consin exclaim "this man is elected s
vln by this House and not by the peo- 1
of ple of Louisiana."
and We doubt not that the people of
dor. Louisiana will endorse fully the
hers course pursued by Judge Ryan. It t
Lity. is probable that, like the election
sal- in the first and fifth districts, he
ray, could have got the election sent
De back to the people. But he scorned
ton to make any compromise which
bya would reflect upon the people who
lr ad honored him with their confi- a
boa
ten dence. He insisted that the elec- a
6 tion had been a 'fair one, that he
we had been fairly elected, and com
lect pelled them to decide that either '
ical he or his competitor had been elec- S
one tel. They took him at his word b
nea and decided against him. Their "
ing decision would have been the same 5
if his majority had been ten times d
We as large. The telegraph informs n
ub- us that Judge Ryan made an able d
the and eloquent speech in behalf of e
rhe the rights of t e people to, elect i
Re- their own representatives, This we W
m- were confident he would do. He 8i
has given his time, money and tal- '
ents to the task of getting his dis
ber trict represenited 'by the man of tl
are its choice. If he has failed it has di
to been through no fault of his own. Pi
era One more district remains, the Si
Sri- decision in which will, *as a matter p
in- of course, be the same as isall the fu
On others. It is evident that the Rad- ci
re icals intend to reward the vaga- in
bonds who come to the South in 8I
Dg- search of office simply because they f

ict MIXED SCHOOLS.
no This is the most important subject .
he now under consideration in our city I
ho and will no'doubt. be brqnght to a I
ng speedy decision. Monday a committee 4
tag of negro men, Pinchbaek and four or I
_ flve Othors, called at the Fish school I
to with their children and demanded 1
ibt heir admission as scholars. Mr. T. W.
Dyer, the principal of the school, re- i
plied that hlie had received no instruc
Sations on thi subject from Mr. Carter, i
let the superintendent, and he would there- i
in fore refer them to that officer. The i
it- appearance of the men was a signal I
se for the boys to seize their books and
to hats and go home. Many of the par- I
a ents came dud took their children a
on home. A large crowd of whites and I
or negroes gathered around the school
and for a time trouble was anticipated, I
ry but the police came and dispersed the t
ed crowd. This it is thought is the open- i
ge ing ball of the war on our Public c
ed Schools and will no doubt be followed I
is up by the negroes until a collison is
u- brought on. Some time, since a gen- I
Or leman in conversation with Parson '
ed Conway, State Superintendent oI Pub- i
Lie lie Schools, told him that the people I
would hold him responsible for the a
d. trouble about the schools, as it is well t
known the mass of negroes themselves t
8s-are not desirous of raising any such is- f 8
sue. Conway replied that the law f
0- had been passed by the Legislature a
and he was only an officer to execute it. ii
of The gentleman replied that it was un- G
he derstood that Carter was opposed to e
It the law, and that its passage had been a
n mainly due to his (Conway a) efforts. S
The general opinion around town is n
that the subject will not be settled d
without serious trouble, as the ne- Ii
groes and their instigators, looking to it
11 the passiveness of the people in the p
tO past, believe that they will be quietly w
l- allowed to put colored children in the p

The great game of base ball between of

deciding game of a series for the cham- or

e for weeks, and has created great ex
l- citemeut which culminated Sunday or
in a crowd of at least four thousand w
u spectators. The game was played with ec
fair skill and resulted in favor of the is
Southerns by a score of 25 to 20. The w

d NEW ORLEANS, May 2.tle 1870. ci
a To the Editor of the Democrat: ri
e A caretul revitw of the political sit- oi
e nation in this State has led me to sus- re
is pect that the object of the prime mov- fo
Sers of the attempt to organize a third i
1 political party was other than that an- g
nounced in their published programme. at
e The time and circumstances at and un- Ie
f der which the attempt was made, Were I
' well calculated to give rise to suspi- pl
cions of bad faith'bn the part of those
who set the third party movement onei
foot. Whether these sepicions are tl
well founded or not, it behooves the om
e Democrats to be actiye and vigilant ti
lest spies and traitors atteppt to intro- tic
duce into their councils a Trqjan horse az
a in this or some other guise, with a view at
to creating dissensions and discord. to
tris a wellknown fact that the ear- ot
pet-baggers and scalawags entered sac- I
Stively into the contest of 1868, and con- m
tinued their efforts until convinced s
that they stood no possible chance of
e carrying the State. This conviction ec
was forced upon them by the returns o
of the registrars and the thorough or- un
Sganization of the Democrats. It was i
I then that the adventurers and reno- w
i gades set to work to prevent a full and Si
fair vote of the State. This they T
sought to accomplish by provoking ci
collisions between the two races, hop- it
. ing by this means to make it appear ti
that it would be dangerous for colored oi
voters to attempt to vote the ticket of m
r, their choice. In
g The object pt tbttajnpt to prevent la
a- full vote was two-foldi First, to af- ai
f ford a pretey't for rejecting thbe electo- or
ral vote of this State and denying seats o0
to those elected as Representatives. 5•
Second to prevent the fact from being w
made unmistakable lmanifest that a w
n majority of the intelligmet voters of
Louislana, without refereae to color or
previous condition, oie^heartily tired l_
of, anddiesgusted with, earpetbg baseal- It
s awag rule. By the aid of a venal sand [

The reristered lthe1Stanti $1 al
$' 1838,as g`ea in. this ausiaa oBt
ed election cascs before 4lgress, prap
146,390. Of this vote 115,385 was cast,
of which the Demnocratic caididates.re- I
t. ceived 79,231; sot only a majority of 4
by the votes cast, but of the registered vo- 1
a ters of the State. These facts not only i
ee clearly prove that the Democrats are I
or the majority party in this State, but I
ol that there is no necessity or plausible I
ad pretext for organizing a third party, i
V. unless the continuance in power of the
e- ruling dynasty is desired.
c- The result of the election in this c
sr, State in 1868, warned the adventurers I
e- and renegades who have so abused and I
ie misused the power they obtained by a
al fraudulent and corrupt means, that the a
id days of their misrule, plunder and op
r- pression were numbered, unless a free I
an and fair election by the people could c
id be 'prevented. Herce we find them a
ol aurging upon the black-and-tan Legia- I
1, lature, under the plea of party necessi- I
ie ty, the passage of a series of measures, f
n- designed solely to retain the political .
ic control of the State in the hands of the
ad party in power.
is The first of these measures was the r
1. postponement of the Spring elections. (
n This was to afford a pretext for declar- g
3. ing the offices vacant that should then 4
le have been filled by a vote of the people
ie and giving the Governor authority to fill c
11 the same by appointment. As a mat- e
;s ter of course these vacancies have been t
filled by the Governor's partisan I
w friends, with a view to securing their
e active co-operation in the next contest, t
t. in order to retain their places. The a
.- Governor has appointed a few profess- 2
4 ed Democrats to some of the parochial y
n and municipal offices throughout the $
a. State, but no one doubts but that in a
[s majority of oases, it was with the en- a
d derstanding that they are to become o
his pliant tools. There are men in our 7z
o midst who offered their lives and their
e property, as a sacrifice in behalf of 14
S what he considered a cause founded on
e principle, who are now as ready and 7;
willing to sacrifice what the high- 51
minded and honorable hold most dear, f
- for place and power.
p The other measures designed to con- $
f tinue in power the ruling dynasty, are aS
I the registration, election, constabulary
r and militia bills, which clothe the act- te
k ing Governor of this State with auto- si
- cratic po\:er. That he will not use p
I this power to the fullest extent neces
Smary to the suceess of the designs of the w
- adventurers and renegades, his past qi
course leaves us room for doubting. 9
First, because lie had to promise to do
a so in order to :give himself from a fate in
sc imilar to that which overtook Auditor 4R
I Wickliffe. And in the second place, he
is interested personally in the soede~a
i of the design to control the result of in
a the next election, as it is to decide for w
or against an amendment of the black- in
I and-tan Constitution which proposes to di
I remove his ineligibility for a second
f term.
SThe registration bill gives the Gov
ernor the appointment of the registrars, m
I who have the right of denying whom- 01
a soever they please the privilege of reg- It
a istering; and as a matter of course be bl
a will appoint none but pliant tools, who pi
a will be wholly subservient to his will tt
b and wishes. C.
a The election bill gives the Governor m
the appointment of the commissioners
- of election, superintendents, returning
a and receiving officers. These all being
r his pimps and panderers, it will be no
Sdifficult matter for them to manipulate
the returns so as to produce the result o
desired by their political triekmaster. O'
It was feared the' people would not of
tamely submit to these wanton acts of
usurpation, and might appeal to th6
civil tribunals for protection of their
rights as freemen, or might rmesort to c
-open resistance. To prevent such a li
- result, the constabulary and militia t
- forces were provided. The former hi
I makes all other depnLents. of te T
- government subservient to the will and ot
authority of the Governor, and the lat
- tIer is designed to subject the people to
Sthese wanton acts of ontrage and op-m
- pression by force of arms. I
, That this programme is to.be carri
Sedout to the letter, there remains lit
Stleroom'for doubting. The Govern
i or's appointments are an evidence
t that ihe intends to per orm his part of w
- the aefarions work as well asathe Black na
Sand Tan Legislatare did theirs. An e
r additional evidenoe of this intention is I
to be found in the fact that the secret at
- organizations among the negroes are"
- being revived and strengthened, .,a i
- militia companies are being formed and
I secretly drilled. 'U
f T'hese facts should arouse the Deom- o0
a crate to the necessity and importance P
s of an early and thorough organization, a
- unless tlhey are content to become the fc
s mere~sexfs of the horde of plunderers d
- who have been lording it over this q
I State for the past two years and more.
r The Deimocrats can organize secret so
cieties for selfprotection and form mil
- itia companies. They can provide o'
r themselves with the necessary weap.
Ions of defece, in casee an attempt is
f made to overrun this State with negro '
militia, as was done in Arka~esas. The
t law provides that none thall., carry
arms on the day of eleetion, either se
Scretly or openly, except the Govern
a or'sappointees. T' provide for any
l emergency that might arise, arms
