The Removal or Governor Wells __The
special Washington correspondent of the
New York Un-aid sends to that paper the
following gossip about the action of General
Sheridan in removing Governor Wells. We
do not attach much importance to the con
jectures of the Washington dispatch writer,
bat pa fetish them as we find tbeti:
General Sheridan is believed to be guilty
of disobedience of orders In removing Gov
ernor Wells after having received the dis
patch from Secretary StantoB, directing him
to suspend all further action in the ease o
the levee commissioners. It is reported
that General Grant and Mr. Stanton had an
Interview to-day. in which Grant favered
reprimanding Sheridan but not removing
him.
On the other hand we find the following
in the late northern papers:
A special Washington dispatch says : The
story going la some parts that General Grant
and Secretary Stanton have been in consul
only returned this afternoon. What his
▼lews are may perhaps be Inferred from the

t*ucial Longsiieet us a soldier proved j
himself abundantly able to tight his own
buttles. And the Blanket. which affects 10
sneer at him for not being u politician, is
unable to destroy the effect of the plain,
manly. and straightforward letter in which
he demonstrates the truth of his assertions
that there should be but one party in the
country, and that the interests of every
Southern man will be best subserved by
affiliating w ith t!m Republican organization.
In its anxiety to lessen the effect which
this declaration of General Longstreet will
have upon the mind of every one who reads
it, it forgets its usual caution and makes an
admission which, when followed to its
legitimate conclusion, not only proves the
perfect truth of General Longstreet's argu
ments.' but unveils and discloses to the
light the wicked purpose of those who seek
to controvert them. What this purpose of
the unrepentant rebels is has long been
suspected, but we did not expect that it
would be so soon confessed by one of their
own mouthpieces. General Longstreet's
battery shelled tiie woods where these
"people were Iring in ambush ; lie drew
their fire and enabled us to see just what
is their position. And it is simply this—
what they failed to accomplish by war they
now seek to accomplish by political strata
Never were the secret plans oi a hidden
and treacherous enemy more effectually
and opportunely exposed. Never were
ma-ked batteries more skillfully uncovered.
A politician General Longstreet may not
be: but his strategy has proved too much
fur the genius of Camp street. The time
lor the Illavi. et to show its hand had not ar
rived- its game should have been to keep
quiet until after the elections, if General
Longstreet never does anything else to
serve the Republican party, he deserves
thanks for thus compelling its foes to
disclose their purpose and to come out
from behind the ambush in which they
have thus far lurked.
" hat is it, then, that the Blanket has
confessed Controverting General Long
street's argument that older cannot be or
ganized so long as opposition is made to
the principles that were declared triumph
ant by the issue of the war. it asserts that
the war settled nothing except that the
Union could not be divided. The great
issues that brought on the war are
yet undecided. The arbitrament of the
sword did not settle them. Let us
quote its own words, " the defeated party
only staked the practicability of dissolving
the Union : the result involved only an
abandonment of that purpose." Nothing
else is given up. Wc go back to the con
dition we were in in 1360. All that we
claimed then, except the right to go out of
the Union, we claim now, and will laborto
accomplish it. When tile conquered peo
pie of the South, it goes on to say. " were
reinstated in their rights, they became in
vested with the lull dignity and independ
ence of American citizens," and when we
obtain our owu State governments again
we can and will re-establish all those insti
tutions that we are now unlawfully de
prived of. The result of the war only de
cided that we should remain in the Union.
It has not decided on what terms we shall
remain in. That is a matter for our own
decision. General Longstreet's idea that
the war decided anything else, is falla
cious. It did i.ot decide there should be
no more slavery. We will re-establish it
if we please—virtually, if not in name.
It did not decide that one class of citizens
should no longer have rights that another
class may not possess. We will build
again Ihe partition wall between ourselves
and the negroes. It did not decide that
all men should be equal in the eye of the
law. We will re-enact our former ordi
nances that recognize and perpetuate ine
quality.
Could anything be more plain? Could
anything be more opportune than this con
fession of the schemes entertained by the
men of whom the Blanket is the organ ?
Daily are its columns filled with appeals to
fiouthern men to register their names -as
voters, and now we see for what purpose.
Not to honestly accept the situa
tion in which the result of the
war has placed them, and to unite with
the Republican party in reconstructing the
State upon the basis of equal rights and
universal suffrage, but of voting against a
convention to frame a new constitution,
and postponing the work of reconstruction
until, as they vainly hope, a Democratic
Congress may repeal the military bill and
permit them to come back under the old
pro-slavery constitution. That this is the
programme of these men is daily becoming
more and mow. apparent. The Louisville
Democrat the other day boldly announced
it. After urging Southern men to register
and then voto down the conventions, it
says : ".The only answer to this is, that to
defeat the convention is to perpetuate mili
tary rule. But is not the rule of white
men. soldiers though they be, preferable
to that of negroes f" To be in a condition
to vote is not lo surrender anything, and im
plies not the slightest aseent to the recon
struction scheme. If, under Mr. Stanbery'a
opinion, the men of the Blanket class can
register in sufficient number to control the
election of a majority of the delegates to
the convention, they might vote for one,
and, when it was called together, employ
it to draw up a constitution that would
exclude ail bat white men from ail the
rights of citizenship; but the more probable
decision would be to vote against any con
vention and keep the State in her present
condition.
When General Longstreet declared there
should be but one party, be might have
gene a step farther and said there was but
one party. The Republican party is the
enly organization in the Union that dares
to avow tie principles. There is not a
Democratic or Conservative journal in the
land that dares openly to attack one
of the principles of the Republican
party as authentically defined in it*
platform of 1866—the last official declara
tion of Its principles. Even the Blanket
will not do it. What one of them will it
data to controvert T That platform con
tain* eleven planks; which of. thejn will
the Blanket spit upon?
duty of every Amerieea is to
the integrity of the
t
l**
to b
arll;
soldk'
thonty t>l the laws ; the war is not
end* >1 till the rebels lay down their
slavery is to be extirpated ; the
t* ol the I'nion are to be honored ;
the emancipation proclamation is to
he ~ -rained; harmony is to prevail
in the national councils: all men em
ployed by the government to bear arms in
its defense are to be protected alike, with
out regard to their color ; foreign emigra
tion is to be encouraged ; three or tour
Pacific railroads are to be built; the pub
lic debt is to Ik* kept sacred, and the Mon
roe doctrine is to be maintained. We do
not doubt that the Blank*!, and all ita
kindred spirits, heartily hate every one of
these principles, but they will not dare to
say so.
These were the principles that the result
of the war caused to triumph; these are the
doctrines to which General Longstreet now
assents. and what the Blank'd dare not de
nounce. Secretly it hates them—openly it
dare not say a word against ihfitn. Neither
dees it venture to attack the additional Re
publican principle of universal suffrage
that will be incorporated in the Republican
creed when the next national convention
assembles. It hates it also—but the game
of deception that it is playing will uot per
mit it to say so. Ii did not see the trap
into which it fell when it attempted to de
nounce General Longstreet. It dare not
openly declare its opposition to Republican
principles, neither does it venture openly
to avow its own. It is only when its anger
gets .the better of its discretion that the
truth peeps out from under the Blanket's
covering-. There i* not an anti-ltepub
lican journal in the South to-day that will
fairly avow the ends at which it aims by
opposing the Republican party. They
will all regret that the Blanket should be
so indiscreet as to disclose the secret they
keep so jealously. There is no party in
the country but the Republican party : but
there is a faction of men North and South,
who secretly cherifch hopes they dure not
avow, and who think that the war did not
settle the principle that perfect political
equality was henceforth to prevail in the
United States. General Longstreet thinks
this principle was settled and that every
one should yield to it. The Btankd thinks
the very contrary. Which is right?
REPUBLICAN WAR PLEDGE?.
About a year after the caving in of the
late rebellion, some a-tutc logician con
ceive! the brilliant idea that the Repub
lican party had given pledges—to whom not
stated—but at any rate had promised some
body that in case the rebels would lay down
their arms they should enjoy certain advan
tages, among which were State rights, am
nesty, and the " Union as it was." Even
President Johnson has taken the trouble to
copy some resolutions which were passed
by the; senate in one shape and by the
house of representatives in another, but
which, not being passed in a constitutional
manner, were never sent to President Lin
coln for his approval, »
coln for his approval, »
None of these expressions of opinion or
resolutions can b« regarded as a binding
pledge, because they were uot accepted by
the Southern rebels. On the contrary they
w'ere used by the newspapers and stump
orators of the South as evidences of the
weakness of the Union cause. The people,
already taxed almost beyond cndurauc
supply the depleted armies with troops find
the commissary department with provisions,
were urged by Jeff Davis and his satellites
to put forth one grand, united, vigorous
effort, and the North would yield. The only
pledge the North made during the whole war
that had any Influence in closing up
the contest w as the pledge of men aud money
enough to command success. That is the
only promise the Republican party
made that the rebels accepted; and they did
that only after our brave troops had shook
the musket- and knapsacks off the backs
and shoulders of rebel soldiers. There
really no communication between the United
States government and the vigilance com
mittee set up by Jeff Davis iu Richmond
The people of the North conquered a peace,
and wrung from Lee, Johnston, aud others
an unconditional surrender. There was not
a single pledge made by General Grant that
could lie construed to apply to any man
not on the battle-field at Appomattox
courthouse. We do not know how many
were there. The rebels have made estimates
on the subject which vary from seven thou
sand to about sixty-five thousand. But sup
pose the whole army of northern Virginia
comprised the higher number, it would by
no means follow that immunity from present
punishment fir these could be extended to
the eight or ten millions of enemies (sec
rebel speeches of three years ago for popu
lation statistics) who were not on the rolls
of Lee's army. There Is no pledge, promise,
or offer to compromise made by the Repub
lican party prior to the Rre&t tumble that
began on the 9th of April, 1865 that sur
vived the day it was made, except the pledge
to conquer the rebellion and save the
Union. The former has been accomplished!
and the same forces arc now engaged in
taking measures to complete the latter.
WAITS OF THE SOUTH.
1. Do you want to got rid of martial
law, so repulsive to every American-born
citizen, and dangerous to the liberties iff the
people ? Then vote with the Repnbiicau
party and send tried Union men to Congress
next winter, and your wishes will be ac.
coni pushed.
2. Do you want to sec commerce, trade,
manufactures, and agriculture revive aud
flourish all over this broad and beautiful
land of the South f Then vote with the Re
publican party and all these and more bless
ings will be the result. Your now desolated
fields and waste places will be repeopled as
by magic with a hardy and industrious race
of men from every quarter of the globe in a
very few years.
3. Do you want to reclaim the millions of
acres of the finest lands that "e'er the sun
shone on" west of the Mississippi and save
the millions you have already invested in
their improvement and your levees rebuilt
and maintained forever ? Then vote with
the Republican party. They alone can do
this.
4. Do you want education and Chris
tianity more widely diffased throughout the
South, and the school-house and the
church to crown the top of every hill,
and nestle in every lonely valley of your
favored land ? Then vote with the Repub
lican party, and your wishes will be grati
fied, for this party is for progress in all
that elevates the condition of man, and
believes in the true doctrine of moulding
institutions and constitutions, to
meet the demands of the ago.
6. And, finally, do you jou want to see
this Union restored to all ite pristine
strength and ptonperitT. with not h star
obscured nor m stripe erase*I from her
glorious fl?ig t a bright and flashing beacon
to all the nation?, aud an example of uni
versal freedom, imverued by the* will of
the.people aud regulated by law ' Then vote
w ith the Republicua Union party and you
will see all these fuWiled, if there i* virtue
and patriotism enough in it (and we cannot
doubt it) to keep .down the unruly and un
holy elements which seek to control, and,
if permitted, will blight all these high t*dur
ances and honest purposes of the party.
THE (STY SURVEYORS DEPARTMENT.
This important department of the city
government is one of those things that de
mand immediate attention by the proper
power*. The draining machines are silent
aud still. So far as we can learn none of
them have been running with any regu
larity for mouths, and latterly all connected
with them appear to be off on a "rand holi
day. Were it not for the regularity with
whir-hall hands draw their pay, from the
surveyor down, no one would suppose that
the department was any longer in existence.
The canals and ditches iu the rear of
the city are reeking with decaying
animal and vegetable matter; the water
that runs down the streets ia suffered to
evaporate and leave the channels filled with
sediment. When it is known that the city
pays nearly a million of dollars a year to
have this work performed, the question is a
very natural one why is it not done?
This is the very season of the year when
the seeds of disease are sown to ripen in
August and September, and experience lias
amply f-hown that nothing short of the
most energetic and faithful efforts can avert
it. If we have an epidemic this year it will
be our own fault.
COLORED CITIZENS. BEWARE OF ALLI
ANCES WITH DEMOCRATS.
Mr. Charles O'Conor, the brains of the
Democratic party, has, according to Lis
opinion, re-established slavery in the United
States.
A dispatch to a New York paper an
nounces that in the Maryland constitutional
-convention on Tuesday. Mr. Peters, a dele
gate, said that he had received a letter from
Charles O'Conor, of New York, in which lie
expressed the opinion that slavery has never
been lawfully abolished, aud that the
amendment to that effect lias no place in the
constitution.
REBUILDING THE LEVEES.
We are gratified to find that the move
ment started by the Nkw Ohlbans Repub
lican to rebuild the levees of this State by
national aid, through an appropriation by
Congress or an indorsement of State bonds,
is approved by nearly all our Republican
exchanges in the northwest. The Demo
cratic party and papers signally failed in
similar efforts, because their motives and
their honesty were distrusted ; but the Re
publican press having taken hold of the
subject, there is now but little doubt that
early next winter we shall have a large ap
propriation for repairing our levees, pro
vided we send from this State a strong Re
publican delegation to Congress.
The Chicago Journal, in the following
words, states the question clearly, and
gives it the weight of its strong indorse
ment :
ment :
The New Orleans Republican estimates
the value of the crops destroyed in that dis
trict at thirty millions of dollars. This on
one tract ot levee land one hundred miles
long by fifty wide. During the yen** 18fi5
and 1806 more than ohc-haifthecultivatuble
lands in the .State were submerged at the
time of the annual rise In the Mississippi.
The value of the crops and other property
along the banks depending upon the proper
maintenance of these levees c annot be less
than one hundred and fifty millions yearly.
Some estimate it still higher. As a matter
of internal revenue to the United States gov
ernment the tax on this amount of crops in
the market would be a very good investment
for the government of the money which the
State asks to rebuild her levees, so that,
granting the inability of the State In its
present impoverished condition to rebuild
the levees, it becomes a matter of high na
tional interest to assume the expense* aud
do this for the State.
In a former article we based an argument
for this course outlie purt of the govern
ment on the fact that by legal decision in
what is familiarly known as the Hudson
river case, navigable rivers were declared
to be the property of the nation. Now the
laud on their bauks being the property of
the individual, the nation or government
is bound to provide against destructive
overflows by confining the national waters
to national channels. This conclusion is
irresistible upon the common-law principle
in regard to trespass.
The petition to the government to rebuild
and maintain the levees is virtually the
same as the petitions which from time to
time go up to Congress for appropriations
for harbor, rapid and snag, improve
ments. It is based upon the same great
fact of a national interest to be pro
vided for by the nation in a case
where private enterprise caunot under
take tne expense. The circumstances
of each particular case are to decide wheth
er the appropriation a*ked for ought to be
granted or denied. In the case of the levees
on the lower Mississippi the argument is
very strong in favor of the government
assuming the expense of building the
levees—or at least of loaning to the State
of Louisiana the funds necessary for their
reconstruction. The consequences of the
rebellion harts beeu most disastrous to the
financial interests of the State, as well as to
individuals, and neither or both are able to
build and keep in proper repair these great
public works, and their only reliance is the
eneral government. Wc trust the fortieth
Congress will at its next session appreciate
the importance of rebuilding the levees of
Louisiana and make the necessary provis
ions therefor.
THE QUE8T10X OF DUTIES ILLEGALLY
PAID.
Iu connection with the recent movement
on the part of the officers of the treasury
to compel the payment of customs duties
alleged to have beeu paid to the Confed
erates, the following decision of the supreme
court of the United States, rendered in 1819,
has been published. We can bardly see a
parallel In the two eswea. The customhouse
aiCtallne, Maine, wsa taken possession of
by the British officers under the authority
of a king against whom the United States
Congress had declared war. The New Or
leans customhouse was seized by an unlaw
ful assemblage of citizens of the United
States, many of whom have since registered
themselves os voters without taking out
naturalization papers, which they certainly
ought to have done If they ever have been
foreigners or enemies of the Unites States.
The firm at Caallne paid the money to the
British officers under protest, and reluc
tantly, while the New Orisons merchants
entered no protest, bat acquired a good deal
of ephemeral celebrity for the promptnoss
with whioh they tamed over to the support
of the rebellion money that belonged to the
United States treasury.

AMBITIOUS.
It seems that General Beauregard, not sat*
isiied with running the Jackson railroad
against the wishes of a majority of the
stockholders. Is looking sharply after the
Carrollton road. He has offered the gov
ernment about fifty per cent, of its value,
which Uncle Sam seems to be indisposed to
accept. Unless he knows of another national
bank that can appreciate the necessity of
"reconstruction," and has special use for
"overdrafts," it islikely he will he unable to
raise the required amount just now. Here
is a chance for some loyal capitalist.
Kesiobation of Loyal Judges in Texas__
The following order, issued by General Sher
idan yesterday, comes quite up to the stand
ard the loyal people of the nation expected
him to attain. It will be read with delight
by the residents of the district to which it
applies. General Griffin will no doubt see
that it is promptly enforced :
In June, 18GG, Judges Thomas H. Stribliug
and W. P. Bacon, strong Union men, were
elected judges of the fourth and eleventh
judicial districts in western Texas by large
majorities. The legislature of the State
afterward passed an act approved October
11, 1866, to take effect December 31st, 1866
abolishing the fourth and eleventh judicial
districts of the State by consolidation with
other districts, thereby creating districts of
such extent as to make it impossible to
administer justice within them through the
courts. The sole object of this act, as pub
licly stated by its advocates, having been
to get rid of the before mentioned judges,
on account of their political opinions, re
gardless of the public interests or wishes
said act wiil be considered us null and void
and the numbers and boundaries of these

Tirx Rioters.— Tbe Chicago Tribune, of
the 6th instant, closes a lengthy article on
Louisiana affairs thus :
Now that General Sheridan lias shown his
willingness to take the responsibility of re
moving officers, when in Ills opinion tiie
public interest requires it, it is to be hoped
that the chief of police who led that body
on the day of the massacre, and those mem
bers of tbe force who engaged in murdering
Union men, will be promptly displaced by
loyal men, and that the men who were
known to have committed murder on that
day will be arrested and made to answer for
their crimes.
