Consxcnow.--In our editorial reference
yesterday to the Opelousas Railroad suit now
pending in the United States District Court,
we inadvertently used the expression "suing
debtors," when "suing creditors" would
have expressed the idea. The error, though,
was obvious, and could have deceived no
The many Miends of Mr. Sam. J. Carey
will be interested in the fact that he has re
eently made a change of base. For fifteen
years Mr. Carey has been general ticket agent
for the Mississippi Central Railroad, and
while in that position not only achieved an
enviable business reputation, but won a host
of firm friends. He has recently aooepted
the same position-that of general ticket
agent-for the Jeffersonville Railroad, be
tween Louisville and Indianapolis. This
road is a very important link in a quick route
to New York, and as it proposes shortly to
put on a through line from Louisville to New
lork without change, wil afford an oppor
tunity to go hence to Ner York by rail with
only one change of cars. We trust that Mr.
Carey will find in his new position all the
kindness which he deserves, and that it will
not be long ere he can count as many
friends in his new home as he has left behind
PzasowL.-L-st evening we had the pleas- 1
ure of a call from our esteemed old friend,
Captain E. Jeff Kenedy, of the celebrated firm I
of King, Kenedy & Co., of Brownsville, Texas.
Captain Kenedy is an old resident of the Rio
Grand. country, and is well acquainted with
the distracted state of affairs on the "other
side" of "that lone river." He oonhrms the
late telegraphio report of the defeat of (Gen.
Vargas by Gems. Martinex and Obrtins, and
the triumphal entry of San Louis Potosi, by
" Los doe Bepublicas" is the name of a
paper printed in the Spanish language in
this city, and devoted to the interests of free
Cuba and Mexico. Los dos Republicas is a
very lively and well conduoted paper, and we
wish it success.
Mr. and lrs. scott Siddons resohed our
city direct from Indianapolis by rail on Wed- t
esday, and are at the Bt. Charles Hotel, Mrs. f
Siddons beizig engaged to appear at the St.
Charles Theater in a to-weeks engagement, i
eommencing on Monday night. The hme of I
the Mir English actress, who is said to inheret
with the name the talent of her great name- t
ake, has reehed us in advance of her com
ing, and ansm es a to look forward with anti- ,
cipatiom of no ordinary pleasure to her perfor- a
sanees. We were the realpients of a visit
from Mr. and bMrs. Siddons yesterday, we
trust not the last during their stay.
No act of the Legislature indioates the
perverted views which the Radicals hold of the
powers and duties of governments more than
th..t which imposes what is called a' 'license"
on professions. The real functions of gov
ernminent involve the protection of property;
and property, in its widest sense, includes P
the right to labor, or to exercise any trade, t
profession or ealling. The Radical idea f
seems to be that the right to exercise such a
trade or calling is conferred by the State, and
that the State has the right to prohibit it at
any time. The taxing power should be exer
cised for the purpose of protecting labor and i
the rights of labor, and to pervert it
to the purpose of destroying such
rights, is essential despots. To say ~bt
no lawyer or physician shall practice his pro
fesion until he pays a license is to say that he
has no nRatursl right to sircise his talents
and his acquirements for the sake of gaining a I
livehbood but that he derives such right from
some supearior power. It is upon this fallc y
that the absurdities of the so-called 'civil d
rights" act are founded. It is a fallacy that
permeates radicalism, and crops out on all
occasions--a fallacy which, indeed, lie at the u
owundation of radical policy, mnd direots the v
tone of adIcal thought-a fallacy whiohshows
that radlsli is at war with true liberalism
and that it is really rmestrictive, retrogressive,
and tyrannical. It is to be hoped that the
time may msoon eaem when the judiciary, re. t
cognizing the eterls truths of government f4
and the inalienable rights of the citizen, will l
refshme to enforce legislation bansed upon as. y
sumptions so oonfondsd and so destrutive

The United ates BSuprenme Court is Wadn
ally stripping the greenbacks of the conditions
necessary to give practical elect to the legal
tender acskt. eferring to the decision in the
ca of Bromaon vs Rhodes, daeplaia that
this law has no retroactive application, and
that it does not invaidate gold contraets, the
New York Tribune says : "We have little
V. doubt that this decision foreshadows an ulti
- mate determination that the entire legal ten
der provision is uneoostitMtioal. Indeed, we
- think that the Supreme erst is seeking, by
this and simiY deeisioe, to prepare the
country for its final disposition of the whole
subject And prudent men will hasten to
put their business upon suobh a footing as will
enable them to meet such a decision." In
our opinion, the question can be of no practi
cal consequence as regards future transactions
of business. It is not to be supposed that
debts now contracted on the basis of a depre
ciated paper currency would be enforced by
the judiciary to the full collection of their
face in gold. The same eqmty that forbids
the retroactive operation of the legal tender
act, would forbid the like operation of a de
ci ion pronouncing the act unconstitutional
Gold would remain the only legal tender, it
is true, but the aa.ount of gold equitably exi
gible for the payuent of a debt estimated in
greenbacks, would be less than this estimate
to the extent of the depreeiation of those
notes below the per of gold at the time the
debt was contracted. No proposition could
be clearer than this. To discuss it contra
dictorily would be as preposterous as to argue
shant the mnfhplietion table, or addition
and subtraction. If, thee, principles of equi
ty are to govern hereafter in adjusting the
relations of debtor and creditor, these rela
tions eannot be seriously affected by the ulti
mate declaration by the Supreme Court of the
unconstitutionality of the legal tender act.
Some of our contemporaries have wasted a
good deal of speculation as to the m.nner
and the measure in which future transactions
of business would be affected by the two deci
sions of the Supreme Court affirming the
principle that the greenback dollar was not, in
fact or in legal intent, the equivalent of the
coin dollar. The inexorable laws of trade
had already decreed that greenbacks should
be legal tender only to the extent of their
market value; and no legislative ingenuity or
rigor, nothing, indeed, short of downright
plunder of property and the annihilation of
commerce, could have nullified this decree.
Greenbacks had no real value imparted to
them by the legal tender provision; they
would lose nothing in point of real value if
that provision were repealed by Congressional
enactment or judicial decision. As one of
the forms of the national debt their current
price throughout has been measured by the
market value of the national credit; and in
the nature of things it must continue to be
thus measured whether the legal tender pro
vision shall fall or stand. Deprived of its
retroactive quahty, it is simply a legislative
superfetation, and it is immaterial whethe
the judiciary sha', hereafter pronounce it
dead or alive. The apprehension that green
backs would cease to be available for buying
and selling purposes, although needed by the
business of the country, if their legal tender
faculty were destroyed by the Supreme Court,
is altogether fallacious. There is no reason
why, in seh a sass, they should not still be
taken in trade, as they are now taken-if
needed. Their discount would be no greater
if taken from their face, instead of being
added to the prices of commodities which
they should be used tc purchase. But if
longer needed as currency, the- would, oi
course, pass outof circulation aw., . resolved
into the mass of the national aeut, rising or
sailing in value acoording to the fluctuations
of the national credit.
Governor Warmoth has appointed the State
school board, and the act of the Legislature
requires the State board to appoint a Board
of Directors for the city of New Orleans. If
the board to be so appointed attempt to en
force the peculiar views of the Radicals in re
gard to mixed schools, they will simply
break up our school system. The people of
New Orlesns support their own publio schools.
by money appropriated out of the municipal
taxes for that purpose. They have a right to
the control and direction of the money thus
raised and appropriated, and the interference
of the Legislatue is only another act of
tyranny added to the many which that
body has already perpetrated. The peo
ple of New Orleans simply will not sen.
their children to school with negroes. Th.
may be prejudice or it may be natural repul
sion; or it may be anything else you please;
but it is a fact-and a fact which cannot be
suppressed or overcome. The white people pay
nine-tenths of the amount devoted to school
purposes; but they are willing to pay for
the education of colored children ; to
furnish them with equal facilities
and equal accommodations, provided
that the two races are not mingled
in the same sohool houses. If education
is the object desired this should be sumcient ;
if it is not sufficient, then education must be
only a pretext for forcing a distasteful asso
ciation on the white people. Should it come

The white people can take measures to assure
the education of the white children, without
the intervention of the intrusive State boart
and its creatures, and the Badicals will have
the satisfaction of finding that they have
deprived the colored people of the facilities
and privileges which the latter now enjoy.
Scehenck and Butler have had high words in
the House. The enoonter was no doubt
very fierce between the hero of Big Bethel
and the hero of Vienna. Schenck charged
Butler with saying what he knew to be un
true, which was true for Schench, but not at
all re-sarkable for Butler; and Butler said
that Behenck had high conrage to stand up
for the whisky ring, thereby intimating that
the hero of Vienna had not displayed much
vaor on that stricken field. All of which
was very interesting, although it did not dis
lose say new phase in the character of either
of the antagonists

a1 (; , -,..:, :. !-esds upon terribly delicate
* gr,: I ', 'truly loyal" Radical
t fee ; . - "t Cubans are rebels.
d Ye. ;~ , : e a.asked, do we not
e den.; . Sidid ,;othenr rebels ?
e Why 'to e icoess of theformer,
having Li: r tiL- defat of the latter?
For the Lc-t of rasons. It is not rebellion
e that we are opposed to, but rebellion without
Y sufficient eause. The South rebelled against
e a good government (good, so far as the whites
e were concerned); the Oubans are rebelling
o against Spanish rapacity." We deny that the
I seceding Souther' States rebelled. Never
2 theless, suppose, for argument's sake, that
their secession constituted rebellion. Against
a what, and for what, did they rebel? They
t sincerely believed that they had sumocient
cause, they had no doubt of their abundant
Y right, to take the steps which they did.
r Morally, then, they were justifiable, since
5 moral questions turn upon convictions and
r motives. If the inquiry is carried further,
- it will t f,::in that the seceding States had,
to say the- ..r. 'r-st, fully as much tangible
reason for tLU r so-called rebellion as the
-American co; ties had when they revolted
1 against (; r ,: Britain. In each case, the effort
to obtain independence and self-government
was induced, mainly, by a vivid anticipation
a of wrong and oppression yet to come. Of
I course, we will be told that this anticipation
was unfounded. The adr v -' es of loyal ad
3 heaion to Great Britain alged the same
I argument against the pF·~ci dings of George
Washington, John Adams, Patrick Henry,
Thomas Jefferson and other rebellious
worthies of 1776. But let us also grant, for
argument's sake, that, in the first inst i-e,
the Southern States had no sufficient casie to
"rebel." Then we come to the Tribune's
t definition of what constitutes a sufficient
cause of rebellion. "The Culas," says our
Radical contemporary, "are rr olUing against
Spanish rapacity." Rapacity ou the part of
the existing authorities will, thereore, justify
rebellion, according to this Radical organ.
Well, where has such rapacity been more fla
grant than in this and of or 8tates under
carpet-bag and scalawag rule? The Tribune
itself has often denounced the unscrupulous
and plundering crew who, under cover of
federal protection, have been preying upon
the substance of the Southern people, both
black and white. Hence, if we follow the
Tribune's logic, the South, though it " re
belled" before "without sufficient cause,"
would now be amply justified in rebelling. It
is always dangerous for an orthodox Radical
to. express sympathy for populast. ~ strug
gling for liberty anywhere. Our cvr, but
too impulsive, contemporary should take
warning. It cannot openly advocate the
cause of the struggling Cubans without utter
ing heretical doctrine and exposing its loyalty

equivalent, of all the obligations of the United

expressly provided that the same may be paid in

and the United States solemnly pledges its faith
to make provisions at the earliest practicable pe
riod for the redemption of the United States notes
Not to put too fine a point on it, this act is
simply nonsensical. The declaration by the
Forty-first Congress that the bonds are pay.
able in gold does not bind any sueeding
Congress. The Forty-second Congress may
declare that the bonds are not payable in gold.
Whether they are payable in gold, or in
paper, depends on the nature of the original

or in paper depends on the public opinion
and the legislation of some future day, and

Permit me, while thanking the Cuomss for its
paragraph of this moruing, whish was no more
than was to be expected from its uniform coar
tesy, to enter a caveat again st the assumption of
the G;alveston Bulietin that the proposed paper, to
which it refers, should it begin life, would be con
duoted on a '"' quasi pious plan," as wus at first the
New York World. This is a mistake; it wll be
simply a cheap newspaper; and if it gives more
religions news thaa is usual. It will be only in ad.
dition to the ordinary secular news. The Bulleti
was led so to think, probably, from the fact that
such a paper found favor with eminent clergymen
and in a church journal.
Let me also msay that while this one is not to be
per se a religious paper, I fad no reaso for be
lieving that such a one would not suceead heres, in
that one did not do well in New York; since
here, where mere " literary" and " fain1" wHe
teas 5. -, w.sres, the ethocist
"Christian Advocate," of Dr. Keener, and the
"Mornlng Star," of the Roman Cathollo Church,
both able and well supported religios journals,
prove that religion bears better fruit here than
there, in proportion to the numbers and resources
of its professor. Respeotfully,

Tai VAnrurt.--There was another fine house
at the Varieties last night, to witness the fourth
drawing of Brougham's Lottery. The piece is
evidently "taking" well, and the whole town will
doubtless ne It. Some of the soenio eficts are
very fine, and show how thoroughly nature may
be imitated by art.
There is, however, something else now on the
tapiL at the Varieties, to which we wish to direct
particular attention. It is nothing more nor less
than the benefit of Mr. Vining Bowere, which Is
fixed for Monday evening next, 22d inst. The en
tertainment will be a very attractive one, for it
will embrace no less than two new pieces.
Buckatone's "Married Life" will be one. This
is a superb play, and will receive full justiee
at the hands of the Varietles troupe. A new
farce entitled " Jones's Baby" Is the second of
the novelties; and In addition to these will be
played the Immortal "Toodles "-Toodles, the
farce that will last as long as the power of laugh
ing remains In the human frame. But setting
aside the splendid bill which is announced for the
occasion. Mr. Bowers per se deserves a rousing
benefit from the New Orleans publio, which
during the past winter he has done so much to
amuse. Let, then, every friend and admirer of
Mr. Bowers consider it his hboundes duty to be
present at the Varieties next Thersday evening.
If they do, not a seat will be vacant.
