The convention of radical Republicans
now in session at Mechanics' Institute is a
body whose acts cannot fail to interest
every thinking mind in the community. It
may be called the first State convention of
the Republican party in Louisiana; for at
the time of holding that of lf<65 at Economy
Hall there was no organization of the party
extending throughout the State. To this
body, therefore, we may look for a formal
declaration of principles, the platform on
whch the party is to stand during the
coning contest. What that platform will
be there can be little doubt, for there is no
division in sentimept among the Repub
licans of Louisiana.
We acknowledge but one banner, and on
it aje inscribed those well-known Republi
can principles in whose truth is our strength:
" The government of the people, by the
people, and for the people,' 1 " Equality be
fore the law practically carried out,"
" Universal suffrage—the only guarantee
pledge of universal justice," " The State is
bound to educate its citizens." Besides
these general maxims there ore local wants
which cannot be ignored, viz : the revision
of the State laws, so that they may be in
harmony with those of the United Slates ;
a declaration of the views of the party on
local matters, such as the rebuilding of the
levees by national aid, the abolition of the
cotton tax, and the protection of the sugar
Interest. Now is the time to take our stand
on all these important points ; and the radi
cal Republicans who have been chosen to
represent the party interests are just the
men, in our opinion, to do so boldly and
It is an encouraging sign that the '-con
servative" papers have recently ceased
their boasts of t'uo influence which might
be expected from members of their party
over the newly enfranchised citizens.
They are beginning to learn the futility of
such hopes, which could have sprung only
from the same spirit of self-delusion which
counted on European support during the
late war. Failing in the design of drawing
strength from that quarter, the "conserva
tive reconstruction Democratic party"
have taken a new tack, and attempt
now to represent the Republican party as
composed almost exclusively of blacks.
They hope thus to rouse a spirit of race,
and to do the very thing of which they ac
cuse us, n. mcly, to divide the State into a
black and a white party. In this also they
will fail. Of the twenty-five thousand vot
ers now Registered in this city we have no
hesitation in saying that at least twenty
thousand are radical Republicans, and, un
less the convention now in session makes
some fatal blunder, (of which there is no
danger), that number will be greatly in
creased before the election.
As we Baid the other day, we shall be
glad of such accessions,and have no fear of
being demoralized by weak-kneed recruits.
Where there is so much enthusiasm in the
rank and file falterers will be carried
along in spite of themselves, and though
lukewarm converts do not strengthen the
cause they join their loss weakens the
enemy. However, we have no fear of
being troubled with such. No weak
man would leave tiis other side to join us
now. It requires, on the contrary, great
moral courage to a man of any standing to
make such a change at such a time. We
repeat, therefore, that we welcome ac
We also welcome opposition, and trust
that the papers that have charge of the in
terests of 'the " conservative, national re
construction Democratic" party will exert
themselves to their almost to promote those
interests. Nothing strengthens the streng
like opposition. If our opponents should
losSe heart and leave the field clear We
might be tempted to do as ethers have done
in like circumstances—turn onr super
abundant fighting .flower against each
other; but while we have an opponent ever
on the watch there Is no such danger.
We commend our opposing cotemporaries,
therefore, for their seal, and hope that they
will not abate it.
The convention having made so ju
dioious as choice in It* presiding officer
will no doubt soon complete its organiza
tion and get fairly to work. That the
result of their labors will add greatly to
the efficiency of the party there can be no

Tlie people of the nation, in congress
assembled, declared last winter that no
legal State government or adequate protec
tion for life or property existed in Louisiana.
If it did not exist then, does it exist now ?
This question we propose to answer by sim
ply stating facts, aud in stating the facts we
desire to be understood in advance as iu no
way censuring General Sheridan, who, we
believe, is now fully aroused to the neces
sity of exerting all his authority to protect
the loyal people of this State. What we
write now, and what we may write here
after iu reference to this department, we
write for the eye of congress, to whom we
look for additional protection the moment
it assemble?. .
Section three of the military bill says it
shall be the duty of each officer assigned to
duty under it "to protect ail persons in
their rights of persons and property; to sup
press insurrection, disorder, and violence;
and to punish, or cause to be punished, all
disturbers ol the public peace and crimi
nals." Now, it is beginning to be asked in
every parish of this State, except perhaps
the one in which we are now writing, do
these agents of the government—for the
time being our only lawful rulers and pro
tectors—nreau to be faithful in the discharge
of the duties assigned them, and where the
disposition exists have they power to exe
cute the law as it is clearly laid before them
in the United States statutes'
Iu New Orleans around the headquarters
of the district commander peace and pro
tection are enjoyed, but in the distant
parishes it is well known that lawlessness
is the rule. The pigeon holes of o*r desk
are full of reports of outrages perpetrated
upon the persons of both white and colored
loyalists, aud it is purely in obedience to
the demand of the loyal people of Louisiana
and not through a love of fault-finding that
we give publicity to them. Ouc correspond
dent writes: "In Monroe freedmen came to
the registrars complaining that threats and
blows had been freely employed to keep
them from coming." "Upon hearing their
complaints the registrars very properly sent
them to the freedmen's bureau; the agent
of the freedmen's bureau sent them to the
justice of the peace, and the justice of the
peace sent them to the devil."
Another one writes: "The freedmen in
Rapides have been shot down in the field
for going to register,*' and what i3 of fre
quent occurrence in that pai isli we hear of
in others by almost every- mail from the
Red river section of the State.
In the parish of Rapides a newspaper of
considerable influence and circulation
boldly declares war against the United
States government, missing no opportunity
to malign it and excite animosity against its
policy and its officers. A recent issue de
votes a large space to the abuse of one of
the registrars in Ouachita for daring to tell
the freedmen that congress is their best
friend and that the Republican party de
serves their assistance. In that and neigh
boring parishes the Republicans are not yet
organized, simply because the protection
they have a right to expect is not sufficiently
pronounced to warrant the risk of becoming
prominent in the new party. "The people
speak with bated breath and gather with
caution," writes another one. "The mad
dog cry of incendiaries and disturbers of
peaceful relations between the races, etc.,
is raised on all sides and we are hunted
down almost as closely as we were by con
script officers during the war."
From Shreveport a valued correspondent
writes: "We are unmolested in our organi
zations simply because only colored iqen
have become members of the clubs. Our
white friends are waiting to learn whether
they are to be protected or left to the mag
nanimity of disfranchised and illegal State
and local authorities. The military com
manders in some cases not only fraternize
with known rebels and shame us by their
social irregularities, but refuse to notice
cases of outrage even when brought before
them officially by bureau agents and others.
Complaint after complaint is made at the
bureau office iu .Alexandria and sent thence
to the civil authorities. * 'Colored men crawl
wounded and bleeding to Alexandria aud
lie all night weltering in their blood at the
headquarters of this great government and
in the morning are told to leave the city
under threats of being locked up as vagrants
if they do not."
True tb its instincts, the Democratic organ
inAlcxandria fills its columns with low abuse
of its political opponents, styling them idle
radical vagrant*, worthless scamps, and
stigmatizing as "an ignorant old hypocrite"
the devoted minister of the gospel who has
won the respect of all the community by his
labors among the colored people. Mainly
by his efforts a lot of ground has been pur
chased, a school-house, parsonage, and
beautiful church edifice erected and a day
school kept up. On the sabbath crowds at
tend his preaching and attest his faithful
ness. The Democratic editor is exercised
because, for vhe want of a better place, the
school-house whs opened to the Republican
In Natchitoches a disfranchised rebel
judge sits upon the bench in the sacred
robes of justice and boldly casts contempt
on the United States government and defies
its power. Is such a man fit to be intrusted
with the lives and liberties of the loyal peo
ple of the State ? If this is protection it is
the protection that wolves give to lambs.
We believe General Mower to be at heart
one of the soundest radicals in this military
district, but is he aware that his late order,
closing the mouths of all the officials in hiB
department is construed in some places to
mean school teachers, clerks, orderlies, and
all who are in any way connected with the
freedmen's bureau; to forbid attendance
upon any meetings of colored people or con
versation on politics with them.
We know General Mower too well to be.
lieve that he is willing to join those who are
making war upon free speech. Upon'the.
question how far the restriction of free
speech may be proper, good and wise men
may differ, but *'

It is impossible to read without emotions
the proclamation of the ex-Emperor Maxi
milian that we published yesterday morn
ing. We never had and never can have any
sympathy for this fallen man a:, a usurper
or a ruler—but the misfortunes that, havo
now fallen upon him are heavy enough to
awaken our pity. The crown which has
just been torn from his head was dearly
purchased. To obtain it he renounced his
claims to the right of eventual succession
to the throne of Austria, and gave up his
portion of the family estates in that king
dom, valued at twenty millions of florins.
He abandoned a career in which he had
already won honor and distinction aud in
pursuit of which he was happy. He sacri
ficed brilliant positions and still more bril
liant prospects. In the three-years during
which he has worn the crown thus dearly
bought he has seen rivers of blood shed in
its defense; he has beheld his wife whom
he teiiderly loved bereft 'of her reason; he
has endured all the torture of uncertainty,
fear, distrust, and remorse.
Finally, all is lost. Conquered, not by
by the valor of his antagonists, but by the
treachery of one of his own officers, whom
he had loaded with favors and in whom he
trusted, he was stripped of all his power
and confronted by death. And then, in
words not without dignity and power, he
vindicates the purity of his own intentions,
perhaps with sincerity and truth, and hurls
at the nmu who lured him on aud then
abandoned) him to his fate a denunciation
that will ring throughout Europe and shake
the throne of Louis Napoleon.
The terrible words that Maximilian ad.
dresses to the French emperor will fall like
a thunderbolt among the crowned heads
now assembled at Paris. The fates appear
to have selected the moment for this grand
denouement in the Mexican tragedy with an
especial eye toward its dramatic effect.
For the first time in fifty-two years the sov
ereigns of Europe have congregated in the
French capital.
There has not been such an assemblage
there since 1815, when Alexander of Rus
sia, Frederick William of Prussia, aud
Francis of Austria, the uncle of Maximilian,
met there with Wellington, Blucher,
Schwarzenberg, and Metternich, to con
gratulate each other on the fall of Napoleon
I. Now the sovereigns of almost every Eu
ropean kingdom are congregated there to
do honor to his heir and nephew, Napoleon
III. It is probable that by the time
these solemn aud terrible words of Maxi
milian, uttered as he stands on the brink of
his grave, reach Paris, his brother will be
among the guests in Louis Napoleon's
palaces. Will ho turn to that man of desti
ny and ask him, " What have you done with
my brother?" and wilt Napoleon reply in
the words of the first murderer, ''Am I
your brother's Keeper ? "
It is not difficult to imagine the consterna
tion that the receipt of this appeal from the
betrayed Maximilian will create at Puris. It
is a cry for vengeance that will not fall
upon dull, or unwilling ears. ''All the
monarchs of Charlemagne's country will
demand of the Napoleon dynasty an ac
count of my blood, and of the German,
Belgian, and French blood shed in Mexico,"
exclaims the fallen Maximilian. " Then
will he the end! Soon, before the whole
world, Napoleon the Third will be covered
with shame from head to foot."
It is, indeed, almost certain that events of
a very grave character will result in Europe
from the downfall of Maximilian. There is
not wanting some reason to believe that
Louis Napoleon has foreseen the storms of
indignation that would arise against him so
soon as it was known that his abandonment
of Maximilian had resulted in his death.
Notwithstanding the peaceable settlement
of the Luxembourg imbroglio, Napoleon
has not ceased his preparations for war.
Secretly, but not so secretly that indications
of the fact have not been plainly visible, lie
has continued his concentration of military
supplies, his manufactures of arms, his in
ventions of new artillery. The friendship
that is manifested toward him by his fellow
sovereigns he knows is artificial, hollow,
and insincere. They distrust, hate and fear
him, aud secretly regard him as an upstart
and an usurper.
It may be that the appeal for vengeance
which Maximilian, one of their own class,
has sent across the seas, will be seized
upon as the pretext for forming another
" holy alliance " against the present Napo
leon, as there was one established against
his uncle. The next news from Paris will
be of grave importance. If Louis Napoleon
can subdue and control the storms of pas
sion that will soon burst about his throne
he will achieve a triumph more wonderful
than any of his former successes.

Editor Republican :
Your correspondent new closes his analy
sis by the following summary of points
covered by the publications of May 30, June
4, and June 7:
First—That the State governments or
ganized since the cessation of active hostili
ties in the ten rebel States are only de facto
governments, congress having solemnly de
clared " no legal State governments exist in
those States."
Second—That de facto applies to each of
the co-ordinate branches of government,
legislative, executive, and judicial. Good
during sufferance.
Thinl—That the State governments or
ganized by President Johnson in said rebel
States were so organized by him without
authority from tho constitution or any law
of congress.
Fourth—That said attempt to organize
State governments iu the rebel States by
President Johnson was a palpable infringe
ment on the plain prerogatives, of cougress,
wherein the constitution lodges the power
to declare war aud make final and perma
nent adjustments upon the termination
Fifth—That it was the plain duty of Presi
dent Johnson on the cessation of hostilties
to have convened cougress in extra session,
to lay the ground work of final adjustment;
and his failing to do so, but undertaking it
himself, was reprehensible and unwar
ranted ou his part.
Sixth—That congress has wisely and just
ly set tho president's work of reconstruction
all usidd by this " military bill, 1 ' and prop
complete restoration in a manner akin to
territorial organizations.
Seventh—That the military bill plainly
and unmistakably points out the president's
duties beyond which he cannot go, aud that
It is manifest that cougress jealously guarded
against him, that they predetermined that
war nor the attorney general who are
power to peremptorily instruct the district
commander iu matters plainly within the
sphere of his duty laid down by the law.
Eighth—That the military officer after be
ing assigned to duty of district commander
under the military bill has a new orbit in
which to act, distinct from the ordinary
army routine, not being however entirely
severed from the latter.
Ninth—That when the
Ninth—That when the supplement to the
military bill declared it to bo tho duty of
the officer in command of the district to
"cause a registration to be made," con
gress did not mean that the president
should again have power to intermeddle, by
np.nemntnrilv dirpetinn? and insiriwtimr wyii/r
peremptorily directing and instructing who
shall be registered or how registration shull
be conducted.
Congress predetermined that matter them
selves, leaving much to the good sense and
discretion of the officer in command.
This docs not preclude the idea of sug
gestion, counsel, and advice.
Tenth—In this matter of reconstruction
of rebel States the district commander does
not render an "account of his steward
ship " to the president or secretary of war,
or even to General Grant.
He accounts alone to congress by show
ing final results in tho formation of new
State governments, to be submitted to the
final approval of congress where the para
mount authority rests.
Eleventh—Thisjbrings us tolthe point bofore
asserted, that the district officer must con
sult the will of congress alone, as to be un
derstood from laws enacted.
Twoltith—That each district ofllcer in his
orbit created by the military bill is superior
to any de facto rebel State government, or
any bmnch thereof over which he is
placed, and that he can permit the
continuance of any branch of such gov
ernment or tribunal, or he may remove,
suspend, or displace any de facto offi
cer of State government within his district,
upon such causes as he shall deem Batisfac
Thirteenth—That it is highly improbable
that the secretary of war trill counsel in
terference by peremptory instructions; he is
himself too good a lawyer for that.
th-Tha' " ........
Fourteenth—That the military bill does not
mention that it shall be any part of the
duty of the officer to revise or modify any
decree of any civil oourt adjudicating pure
ly civil matters relating to collections, etc.,
bnt by virtue of the inj auction of the
law that it shall be his " duty to protect
the rights of person and property;" in order
to perform such duty he may suspend or
annul the execution of a pretended judicial
writ issued in pursuance of a colorable
judicial decree founded in fraud, collusion
or political prejudice, and made to subserve
the petty spleen of some Individual or indi
viduals,and that the execution of such color
able judgment or deOree would result in
trespass or other tort to the rights of prop
erty of any individnal or Individuals.

moval of officers, etc., to of coarse oon

not meant to ffiiply to the United States dis
