IATIeOA. NMaeeAnT IpAlgfT.
Oi. . . Niaos-cor one, I was truly pleased
to learn from the solom.s of the E oaur that
laniitery skips ed bea takesn with a view to
organise a party in this State under the above
Inme, i whiob it is proposed to embrace aI who
are opposed to radical rule, which includesat least
nlneteea-tweantethe of the bona fide white ale
ltiseas. The aecessity for schk an orgealniiea
at bl time is s apparent, that I was sarpried
that there is opposition to it, mainly on aseonut of
te name proposed. This lq the more surprising,
when it is known that many of the ge6tlemes who
Inaugurated this movement, were formerly violent
opposers of the Democratic party-when only a
diflerence of opinion in reference to governmental
r policy divided the American people into politoial
parties. But now, when they see thecountry In
danger, and republican government about to be
subverted, they readlgesatrie all their past and
long-cherished prejudice. and predileotioso, And
unite with the pery upon the sncoes of which
they have every reason to believe, at this time,
depends the preesrvation and perpetuation of the
government of our fathers, and the restoration of
peace happiness and prosperity to the nation.
Phis is tre patriotism, and should command the
Srespect, confideace and eso e eeonoo t of every
man who has at ea thert good of his country.
It is urged by some that onmeervative, or some
other name of equally general slgniflesaoe, would
have answered as well, if not better, than "N-a.
tlonal Demooratic," particulerly as tae organizt.
tion is only to be temporary i i it character,
decigned to subserve local purposes. This is a
mistake, so far as it relates to to the will and wishes
of the mass of the people. These are anomalous
times, and they will not be content with mere
generalities. They have become tired and dis
guested with temporizing expedients, that seenre
nothing reliable and lasting, even when noceessful.
C'onservatis means nothing definite-Is is a sort
of " betwixt and between" point-a ved to oo
ceal ulterior purposes, to be revealed afer soe
cess is attained. The people desire something
more than ths-something that will afford them
an earnest for the future. .bey seek a standard
arounad which they can rally and do battle against
radicalism with some certainty of sooeess.
Bence it is that the people of the oath-of
Louoisna-desire to unite with the great national
Democracy of the North and aid, to the extent of
their power, Is achieving a national, and not a
local or sectional triumph, over the faction that
seeks the overthrow of republican goverameat
and the destruction of civil and religious liberty.
The fact should be borne in mind that an at
tempt was made In the so-called loyal States to
organize all shades and grades of opposition to
radicalism Into a conservative party. What was
the result? Signal fllure; it scarcely amoeened
to a respectable opposi. Instead of weaken
leg the tfneation it was designed to tterly defeat,
it seemed to atrengthen it. Why? Simply be
csase coaervatl was too ladediite to command
the respect, ooalldeace and nupport of the poLe.S

cracy rallied in Its might and power, sad easn to
the bresee its time-tried banner which had so often
led to victory? Why, radicalism was routed,
" horse, foot and dragoon." in a majority of the
States where it had gained almost overwhelming
triumphs, and even driven from some of its strong
holds. This was owing to the simple fact that the
people knew for what they were contending
when battling under the ample folds of the banner
of national Democracy.
This, then, is the party with whblch the people
of Louisiana-of the !bouth-are invited to unite
and co-operate in the pending struggle, with a!l
the ultrates united noader the name of radical
ism, which is to determine the fate of this nation
for weal or for woe. That all who wish to see
the government restored to something near what
it was in the earlier days of the republic, and
peace and happinees once more smile upon the
land, will accept the.nvitation, regardless of past
political prejudices and preferences, there cea be
no question. Never before was such an issue sub
mitted to the American people to be decided by
peaceful means. In comparison, all other con
siderations sink into insignifcance. But if the
people are true to themselves, victory will cer
tainly crown their efforts. w.
BILL RrLATImx TO AsaNwoo ED LANDS-Relief
Provrision.-The bill introduced into the House eo
the 13th by Governor Boutwell, relating to aban
doned lands, provides for the relief of the suffer
ing in the South to a considerable extent. It de
clares forfeited to the general government all
abandoned lands in the ooth, and says neither
the President nor anybody else shall restore them
to their former owners, and authorise their sale
by the commissioner of the freedmen's bureau in
ten scre lots to worthy freedmen, on three years'
time, the title to remain with the United Sintes
antil full payment is made. It then goes on to
provide that the commiesioner may extend aid In
the way of prevision and graia to farmers ad
planters this yeaur if certaein term specified in the
bll are complied with. Payment to be made oat
of proceeds of crops next winter.
The Herald's Ssntigo specal, of January 6th,
via Bavena 12th, sayse t xhe es here are inmap
portable. Hones owners are abandoninog their
estates, and small farmer are giving up the cOld
vation of the soil. Governmenat educational **
tablishments are closing their doors, their pro
femora refusing to oontione at their poets without
psament of their saluries. Most of the oloers in
the Custom House have been removed. The city
government is 140,.000 in arrears to the gas com
peany for bgbhtng the streets. The police are In.
effective, and the frequency of burglary and rob
bery is unparalleled.
