Election of Health Officers.—M r. Pen

of health, gave notice at the last meeting
that he should at the next session of the
board move to go into an election for
health officers for the foui- municipal dis

cumbents were elected have expired. The
following is the ordinance providing for
the appointment of health officers, ap
proved August 2, 1866:
Section 28. For the purposes of the ordi
nance the city of New Orleans Hhall be di

Powers' Statue or AVu.hIngtos.
We learn that Governor Flanders has ap
plied to the secretary of the interior for the
return to this state of Hiram Powers' statue
of Washington, which was taken from Baton
Bouge by General Butler in 1862, and sent
north for safe keeping. The original inten
tion of the general was to send this work of
art to New York; but the ship on which it
was placed became disabled at sea, and put
into Chesapeake bay. The statue was
finally sent to the patent office, where it
has been kept ever since, waiting for the
proper time to reship to New Orleans.

ness." From the constitution the following
was struck out: 44 Ever; citizen owes para

The recent letter latetly addressed by
General l'ope to General Grant points out
in very clear and forcible language the
daiger that is to be feared from the old
political leaders of the south, who have
learned nothing and forgotten nothing, and
who still cherish the hope of regaining their
former influence over the minds of the peo
ple. This is a theme that we have often
dwelt upon in these columns, and all that
General Pope says in his last letter we
have said again and again, with all the
earnestness that the importance of the sub
ject demands. It is not from the soldiers
of the late confederacy that the friends of
the reconstruction of the south have any
thing to fear. The nonsense has been
whipped out of them. In the sharp school of
war they learned lessons that they will never
forget. But the old politicians of the south,
ihe men who brought on the war in the first
place, and who hid themselves in soft and
sate places while it was being waged, areas
dangerous now as they were seven years
ago. and no permanent peace will bless the
land until they are placed in a position
w here they can (lo no more mischief. The text
upon which General Pope wrote the letter
we have alluded to, was a speech delivered
by B. II. Hill, of Georgia, a man recently
pardoned by President Johnson, and who i
a fair type of the southern politicians who
are doing ail in their power to impede and
prevent the work of reconstruction, and to
build up the reactionary party in the
south. We have many of this class of
men in New Orleans, and they are
far too plenty all over the south. They
are daiigerous ; but when properly on our
guard against them we can render them
powerless. It is fortunate that they have
already commenced to propound their
theories, and to enunciate what they call
their principles. And here we may see a
fresh illustration of the good that always
attends the exercise of the privilege of free
speech in a republican community. It
would be very easy to find in the speeches
and writings of these anti-reconstruction
politicians of the south, abundant cause
for silencing them. In no other country in
the world, under the same circumstances,
would men guilty of the blackest treason
against the government, be permitted to
assail its acts, abuse its officers, and de
nounce its measures. But here the widest
liberty of speech and the press consistent
with law and the preservation of the peace
is not only permitted but is encouraged.
The evil designs of the reactionists are
dangerous only so long as they are not
brought to light. When thus uncovered and
displayed they will be quickly disowned and
repudiated by the people. 44 Vice is a
creature of such hideous mien that to be
hated needs but to be seen." The preg
nant source of many of the woes that have
befallen the south was the restriction that
was placed upon free speech and a free
press in the old days of slavery. The ex
istence of slavery and the peculiar system
of polities that grew out of it. engendered
in the south a sluggishness of mind and
body, and a disposition to assail by vio
lence the right of opinion and discussion.
This mental and physical disease
is not wholly eradicated among the
whites of the south. There is little
doubt but that every Radical news
paper in the south would be sup
pressed by mob violence to-morrow, if the
fear of the military arm of the government
were removed. But, on the other hand,
the Radical party desire nothing more than
that the utmost freedom ot discussion
should prevail; and it will be seen that
when the new civil governments of the
southern states go into operation, adminis
tered by the Republican masses, the same
freedom ot opinion and discussion will be
guaranteed to every citizen that is now
enjoyed under our military government.
There is no bigotry in the mind of a Radi
cal Republican He knows that he is
right, of course ; and he is so firm in this
conviction tiiat he is not only willing, but
anxious that his political adversaries should
have full freedom to attempt to prove that
he is wrong; satisfied that, as truth is
mighty and must prevail, the effect of all
such discussions must be to vindicate the
soundness of his own taitb, and to demon
strate the unsoundness of the theories ot
bis opponents.
For these reasons we are always pleased
when southern politicians like B. H. Hill un.
veil their feelings and declare their purpo
ses. General Pope expresses the same
idea when be says that no reconstruction
can be satisfactory, or at all reliable as to
future results, unless these men are per
mitted to discuss openly and according to
their nature the issues presented. In this
state, and perhaps in nil of the states now
under military rule, it may be considered
certain that the work of reconstruction
will go forward without impediment, in
the manner prescribed by congress,
until the new constitutions have
been framed and adopted, and the new
civil governments set fairly in motion.
Until then the old politicians will wisely
keep themselves, for the most part, in the
background, although we must expect to
see their fingers occasionally thrust into
our pie while it is being baked by the new
cooks selected by the people. But no
sooner than this work is accomplished they
will be found laboring to regain their
former ascendency, with appetites for
office and honor sharpened by their long
continued deprivations of these luxuries.
It is a grave question whether the white
people of .these states will have the good
sens' to withstand the influence of the
leaders who have in former years controlled
•hem. It may said that as these leaders
are themselves incapable of bolding office,
and as the whites over whom they would
have any influence are in a min"' tty it will
be a matter of very little importance what
they do or say. The Republican party will
oontrol the political affairs of Louisiana,
and perhaps of all the southern states for
many yean to come, and the schemes and
plots of the unrepentant and reactionary
political leaden may be safely disregarded;
This, however, is rather a narrow way of
looking at the subject. The Bepublicaa
party of Louialana does not desire always
to keep Ns present enemies uMer its that.
It prefers rather to convert these enemies
into friends, and to sit down with them in
peace and brotherly love, in the shade ot
the great tree ot liberty that they are about
to plant. We are about to establish here
a republican form of government, beneath
which every man shall be entitled to equal
rights, and we wish that every man in the
state should show by his actions that it will
be safe to confer upon him the privileges and
rights that we intend to secure for ourselves.
The Republican party ot Louisiana would
be glad if to-day there were not a disfran
chised man within her borders. Just so soon
as the public safety will justify such an act.
the Republican party will labor for the re
moval of political disability from the class
now disfranchised. The state can never be
wholly prosperous, and our people can
never be wholly contented so long as one
half of our citizens are shut out trom the
exercise of the franchise, and are aliens in
the land of their birth. For the present
this exclusion is absolutely necessary. It is
not yet sate to entrust any politcal power
in t he hands of the men who have been
disfranchised for participation in the rebel
lion. We must exclude them, and go for
ward with our work of reorganizing the
state without their aid. But as soon as we
fit them for the intelligent discharge of po
litical duties, and are satisfied that they
are wholly converted from the error of
their ways, we will admit them once more
into the political fold. But they can never
be thus converted so long as they listen to
the teachings of their old leaders, and con*
tine their reading to the columns of their
old newspapers. These men look forward
to the coming of 44 a reaction" against the
spirit of republicanism that pervades the
land. When this state is readmitted into
the Union, and the military power is re
moved, they hope to build up for them
selves a party that will insidiously seek
to undermine the new government, and to
drag the stale back into the condition it
stood before the war. It may be said
that this will be impossible. We believe
that it will be impossible, but we also be
lieve that the attempt will be made, and
that it will be productive of much trouble
if into it the white people of the state per
mit themselves to be drawn. It is useless
to attempt to persuade ourselves that the
majority ot the white people of this state
are any more favorable to the principles of
the Republican party to-day than they were
seven years ago. If they knew what these
principles were, they would embrace them
gladly, but they are deplorably ignorant of
them. It is upon this ignorance that tire
old political leaders base their calculations
for their future operations. The moment
reconstruction is accomplished, these lead
ers will commence the work which they
now foreshadow in their speeches
and in their newspapers. They
will foment dissensions among the
Republicans, and harmonize and con
solidate their own ranks. The practical
administration of the government ot this
state upon the principles of Republicanism,
will inevitably be opposed in every possi
ble manner by tbe reactionists. If those
old leaders are permitted to regain their
influence over the minds of the whites, we
will have in Louisiana what they have in
Tennessee ; and instead of being able to
devote our time and energies to the work
of building up the material interests of the
state, we will be compelled to carry on a
warfare, perhaps for years, with the party
that seeks to stem the tide of republican
progress, and restore as far as may be the
condition of things before the war.
Files of the Galveston Bulletin from
the 15th to the 21st inst. have reached us.
The total deaths by yellow fever for the
week ending August 15th were 147. Total
for the season up to that time. 251. Among
the incidents ol the day on the 14th inst.
was that of a frail woman, who left a house
of infamy and devoted herself to the duty
of a nurse without unequaled devotion.
There, the Bulletin says, she is wiping out
the sin of her life.

The Bulletin says the fever has exhibited
a marked preference for that portion of
the city whose centre is in the second ward
market-house, where there are local causes
of disease that might be removed.
We are informed that at the special
meeting ot the executive committee of the
national reconstruction party, held last
week, it was resolved to bold no more meet
ings of thst party, and to put no ticket into
the field. Every member of that committee
pledged himself to use his influence and
money to elect only colored men to the con
stitutional convention. They also resolved
to lobby among the members of the con
vention when it met for the purpose of
persuading the convention not to insert in
the constitution any clause disfranchising
those who are not disfranchised by the
military reconstruction bills.
Death at MaJ,
A dispatch from Galveston announces the
death by yellow fever of the chief of police
of that city, Major Raymoud H. Perry,
whose appointment to that posi
tion by General Griffin was published In
the BarusLiCAK on the 8th Distant. Pre
vious to going to-Galveston, Major Perry
was employed by General Sheridan as a
detective in this city. His predecessor also
died of y ellow fever. _

suppose that the interest on the United

usual charges of rent, clerk hire, etc.
In addition, however, are the following

With trumpet's cry aud roll of drums,
This way the title of battle comes;
All the vast spaces of the hills,
The thunder of the cannon fills:
Nearer it comsc! And who are these,
Like broken wa/cs of stormy seas,
Lon.:* lines of shattered blue, that meet
In rout, confusion, and defeat?
Up the long road the columns fly,
Aud still the fierce triumphant cry
Pursues, and yon dark cloud of gray
Comes surely, swiftly on this way.
Its rolling thunder louder grows,
Its deadly lightning leaps and glows,
And these who fly our lriends, and those
who chase— our foes.
Now' for that crushed and ruined host
Is victory forever lost!
Northward it flies, and nortward come.
The roll of Karly's rebel drums:
Our banners in his ranks are flying,
His march is on our dead and dying:
Northward he comes, and who shall stay
His swift, resistless lines of gray ?
But one stern face is southward set:
But one man is not beaten yet:
Not yet, though all besides should fly,
Not yet, though faithless victory
Perches on rebel flags forever—
The corps is whipped—the general never!
Lo! *ti.s an army that hath fled,
And none are heroes but the dead,
When riding down the valley far
He brought a soul into the war.
Swift came the trampling steed, more swift.
The rider's spirit; as he came
His voice went forth before his sword,
And slew the fears of men with shame.
Then when lie met the mighty rout,
What was his order ?—" Face Auoit!"
As flame through flame the order ran:
Southward they faced, yea ! every man
Faced south- then cheered for Sheridan.
Ah! right well Jubal Early knew
Who hurled that avalanche of blue;
He knew whose hand had turned the flight,
And struck full in the face his van:
Too well he'd felt in many a fight
The strong right arm of Sheridan.
And he who led our legions onward,
Aud bore their darkened banners sunward,
Not less in peace than wrar was great.
But as he marched an army, ruled a state—
Straightforward, pausing not, nor turning,
All his great soul within him burning,
To do the right thing, and to do it well.
What mattered it to him who should op
pose ?
He loved his country better titan his place,
And those who hated hei '—he held his foes.
This was your crime, O Sheridan ! that you
When bad men traded tu their country's sin,
Maintained her honor, and enforced the
To hold the victory yon fought to win.
Defeated ? Yes, but glorious such defeat.
Conquered? Aye, only when the Right is
Thou art become a principle to us,

The rallying cry of millions who maintain

Some person signing him3elf "Johu" ad
dresses us a letter on behalf of the " re
spectable young men of Port Gibson," Mis
sissippi, for the purpose of denying a state
ment recently made by one of our corres
pondents that they had joined the Republi
can fparty. "John" tells us, in no very
polite phrase, that tho report is false. He
evidently imagines that he himself belongs
to the class yclept respectable young men
of his little village, but his style hardly
sustains any such pretensions. We know
very little about society or politics at Port
Gibson in detail, but, arguing from ab
stract principles, wo can assure "John"
and the young friends whose cause he
espouses, that the sooner they come out
squarely and honestly on the broad Repub
lican platform, the sooner they will find
themselves on the road to respectability,
and their success in obtaining that honor
able distinction will depend entirely upon
their honesty and perseverance in their
effort to place themselves right upon the
political record. It is no good evidence of
respectability, "John," to declare yourself
and friends hostile to the principles of the
Republican party. We hope to hear of your
speedy reformation.

The Chicago Ti'ibune, which has strenu
ously opposed the impeachment of the pres
ident, now breaks gronud in favor of this
measure. It gives its conclusion thus:
The country has endured Andrew Johnson

virtue. There being reasons now in law,
as well as In fact, why he should be im

and the latter highly Inexpedient—arc
conclusive of the fact that Mr. Johnson in
tends to stir up anew all the bad elements
in the south, aud make as much mischief as
possible during the remainder of his term
of office. His term should, therefore, be
made as short as possible.

Fortunately there is a remedy. That
remedy is impeachment. Congress meets
again in November. There should be no
u a necessary delay. There is no occasion
for a protracted investigation. There is the
law, and there la the evldance of its viola
tlon, with the motive, intent, and purpose,
glaring in their criminality. The president
will stand red-handed before the court,
whose conviction and sentence should be
prompt and unanimous.
Adoption o' Resolutions.
A mass meeting of the citizens of St. Ber
nard and Plaquemines parishes was held at
the courthouse of St. Bernard, at Terre-aux
Bu*ufs, at 12 o'clock on Sunday. Consider
able preparation had been made by the lead
ing citizens of the two' parishes to render
the meeting an occasion for the interchange
of views, and information for the people.
Judge E. Hiestand, of New Orleans, had
been invited to go down and deliver an ad
dress, to which he had promptly responded.
At the hour above named, about one thou
sand people had assembled at the court
house, comprising voters of both colors, aud
different shades of political sentiments.
The meeting was called to order by Mr. F.
Morales, who nominated Judge P. H. Rous
seau, of St. Bernard, for president, and Mr.
Warren Johnson for secretary, which nomi
nations were unanimously approved. The
president, on taking the chair, made a short
address, in which he stated the objects of
the meeting, and concluded by introducing
Judge Hiestand as the principal speaker for
the occasion.
The judge then addressed the meeting in
a speech of some length and of great inter
est. He especially warned the Republicans
against those men who are striving to fo
ment divisions in the party merely as a
meaus of gaining their own selfish ends.
Many of these men, although now claiming
to stand squarely on the Republican plat
form and to give a hearty support to the
plan of reconstruction proposed by congress,
were recently quite active in the per
secution of Union men. They may be sin
cere in their present convictions, but they
certainly have not been members of
the Republican party long enough to make
them discreet or safe advisers. The
true friend of our party is rather diffident
in urging his personal claims upon the
party, and those who wish either to rule or
ruin are not entitled to the appellation of
frieuds of any party. The judge also allu
ded incidentally to an idea that had been
promulgated by the enemies of the colored
people that congress would confiscate the
property of rebels, aud give it to them. In
case congress should pass a measure of con
fiscation it would result in benefit to the
United States treasury, and not to that of
private individuals. The safest course for
all to pursue is one of industry and economy,
and these with the enliehtenineut to be de
rived from education will make any people
happy and prosperous. This speech was
listened to with great attention, aud seemed
to produce a good effect on all parties.
At the close the following gentlemen wore
appointed a committee on resolutions:
Thomas Ong and A. G. Thornton, of St.
Bernard, anu S. W. Sawyer, of Plaquemines.
The following resolutions were reported by
the committee, and unanimously adopted:
liesoleed, That in the opinion of this
meeting a convention of delegates of the
Radical Republican party of the parishes of
St. Brrnard and Plaquemines ought to be
held at an catty day, for the purpose of
nominating two candidates for delegates to
the convention at the election to be held on
the twenty-seventh and twenty-eighth of
September next; that the delegates of said
nominating convention should be chosen
by the different clubs of each parish on the
basis of one delegate lor each fifty voters,
and one for each fraction over twenty-five
of the Republican voters in each of said
dissolved, That in our opinion, the longer
continuance in office of any person who is
disfranchised—who cannot or will not take
the oath required by the reconstruction act
is inconsistent therewith, and detrimental
to a proper reconstruction of the state,
and the longer continuance of any such
persons in office is an impediment" which
ought to be at once removed.

fying themselves with their clients by speak
