THE CABAL.
The small body of men who have been
secretly working for their own personal
advancement since the election of the
present State government in Louisiana,
have at last thrown off the mask. The
cabal abandons ite dark ways and at
tempts the role of a faction. It comes
boldly before the world and, with the aid
of United States bayonets, in the hands
of United States regulars, it assumes to
hold a convention in a United States Cus
tomhouse—with the doors closed against
the people—and desire to be considered
as fully and fairly representing the Re
publicans of this State. This convention,
that can only be considered regular be
cause it was sustained by the regular
troops of the county instead of the Re
publican voters of Louisiana, has seri
ously assumed to do all, in the name of
the people, that a real com ention of the
people could do. Among other things
that there were done by this bogus con
vention was that of going through the
farce of appointing a committee on ad
dress. That committee was composed of
John Ray, J. Henri Burch, Goorge W.
Carter, James P. Casey and A. Dumont.
In the report of this committee an at
tempt is made to justify the action of the
faction that met in the Customhouse
and, aided by United States troops, at
tempted the perpetration of a huge fraud
upon the rights of the people. It is per
haps well that this report is made, because
it refers to a matter that lies at the bottom
of the rascality of the few men who have
been engaged in the dishonorable work of
attempting to foist themselves in author
ity, and in doing this have made them
selves the authors of whatever division at
present exists in the Republican party of
this State. The report refers to Governor
Warmoth and Lieutenant Governor Dunn
as being "competitors" for the position
of permanent president of the State Con
vention of 1870. If they were competitors
for that distinguished honor, they must
have been made such by the very cabal
that has since grown into a faction, and
is now working to rule or rujn the unity
of the Republican party of this State
Lowell and Packard, conscious of their
individual weakness and the Governor's
strength with the Republican masses,
have undoubtedly sought to ally them
selves with the political fortune of Lieu
tenant Governor Dunn. This has been
cunningly done with a belief that the
colored people would be foolish enough to
make color the only test of fitness for
office.
Messrs. Lowell, Packard, Casey & Co
deliberately commenced this work
1870—the very work that every good Re
publican has firmly set his face against as
something that would not only cause de
struction to the party of freedom, but
bring about eventually a war of races.
Governor Warmoth has never for one
moment pandered to so fatal a doctrine
as this. He has endeavored, in good
faith, to carry out the principles contained
in the thirteenth, fourteenth and fifteenth
amendments to the constitution. And
while he has done this he has been, most
likely, anxious for the time to come when
universal amnesty could be proclaimed,
and every citizen once more invested with
the same civil an I political rights. This
is the feeling of every good Republican
in the land, and we believe it is the feel
ing of every good man who loves hii
country and desires to see the bitterness
of the past entirely obliterated. But this
can not be the feeling of the men who
compose the factiou that recently met in
the Customhouse, and in the name of the
people—the colored people, headed by
Lieutenant Governor Dunn—attempted,
for personal and unworthy considerations,
to concentrate the colored voters of the
State against a Republican Governor of
their own choice. Lowell, Packard, Car
ter, and men of their stamp, may attempt
to rise in this way, but we do not believe
the colored people are so foolish as to fol
low any man—not even Lieutenant Gov
ernor Dunn—in a course that would be so
directly opposed to equal rights to all
men, and so fatal to the continuance of
Republican rule in the United States.
The address that is put forih with so
much assurance by the men of the Cus
tomhouse convention—the very men who
have pitted Lieutenant Governor Dunn
against Governor Warmoth, because they
believe under the load of Dunn the colored
men will follow like sheep—alleges that
"Governor Warmoth has, from the first,
shown the most persistent and determined
opposition and hostility to the State Cen
tral Executive Committee, ever since it
was created in 1870. '' To that portion of
the old State Central Committee that has
attempted to array the Lieutenant Gov
ernor, and with him the colored voters of
the State, against a Republican Governor,
we believe a most persistent and de
termined opposition should be made by
all true Republicans, and, in fact, all men
who desire to avoid the chances in the
future of a war of races. Messrs. Pack
ard, Lowell, Casey and Carter, and all
who act with them in their fight of Dunn
against Warmoth, could not commit a
greater or more dangerous wrong against
society than to continue, with a prospect
of success, the course they have com
menced for political ascendancy in this
State. The great wonder is that they
should have had the co-operation of
Lieutenant Governor Dunn in a' work
that, it persisted in, will inevitably prove
his political destruction. He has in the
past been accredited with more wisdom
than to allow himself to be made the tool
of a few designing white men, who would
make his color the means of their becom
ing the administrators of political power
in Louisiana.
A VOICE FROM CADDO.
A telegraphic dispatch, published in
another column, from Shreveport, in
forms us that a Republican mass meeting
was held there on last Saturday eveniug,
in response to a call made by the Parish
Executive Committee of Caddo. The
meeting was convened for the purpose of
giving the Republicans of that parish an
opportunity to be heard on the subject of
the high-hauded usurpations perpetrated
by the majority of the late State Central
Committee, in their efforts to .prolong
their lease of authority. The extraordi
nary course pursued by them has at
tracted the animadversions of the press
all over the country, irrespective of mere
party considerations. The fact that a
political convention has been called in
the Customhouse, and United States
troops brought there to enforce the wishes
of United States officials, who are them
selves candidates before the convention,
is so novel in its character in this coun
try, and so threatening to civil liberty,
that it has aroused a storm of indignation
against the men who have thus attempted
to introduce a dangerous precedent for
rendering the military superior to civil
p'ower.
The meeting at Shreveport was large,
and enthusiastic iu its denunciations of
•Republicans who have attempted this new
course of conducting the politics of a free
country. Messrs. Armstead and Sterrett,
delegates to the State Convention, elected
by the Republicans of Caddo, made
speeches, explaining and denouncing the
course of the men who caused a conven
tion to be held in the Customhouse, in the
presence of the military.
Forcible speeches were also made by
the Mayor of Shreveport, Mr. H. Crowell,
Esq., and Judge F. M. Smith. Among
other resolutions adopted is one request
ing the Hon. James McCleerv, the Rep
resentative iu Congress from that district,
which embraces the parish of Caddo, to
use his influence to have the federal
officials in this State, who have partici
pated in these outrages upon true Repub
cau principles* removed from office.
The movement in Caddo is creditable
to a people who cherish a proper sense of
free institutions, for while it rebukes the
men who have misused authority tempo
rarily entrusted to their hands, it demon
strates ve.y clearly that Republicans w ill
not countenance wrong, no matter by
whom perpetrated. The indorsement
given to the State and national adminis
trations by the Republicans of Caddo is
satisfactory evidence that they arc iu
favor of the unity of the Republican
party for the sake of Republican princi
ples.
RUSSIA AND PRUSSIA.
That is an extraordinary change of po
litical sentiment, if Russia has grown to
be jealous or afraid of Prussia. We cau
trace the translation to no other principle
than one of vanity, for the two nations
have no conflicting interests that are ap
parent to the general observer. Russia
has been badly governed, because she has
been subjected to the despotic sway of
many weak men. Alexander's friendship
for the first Bonaparte was the cause of
untold calamities, because it gave tlje con
queror of Austria full swing to dominat
Central Europe. It originated in a feeble
suggestion that a great continent, aye,
two continents, would be divided between
France and Russia, which was a vanity
that reason and history should have dis
pelled from any sensible mind. Bona
parte's dream of making the Mediterra
nean a French lake was a personal atnbi
tion which even its great author knew
to be incapable of perpetuation beyond the
term of his own existence; and when
Russia lent herself to this colossal enter
prise on the condition that she was to be
allowed to become the master of Asia,
the home of Romanoff, committed
blunder which the successor of Alexander
made haste to correct. No such under
standing could ever have been had with a
monarch of more reason and less authori
ty. The very absolutism of the Czar pre
cipitated him into the toils of the
meteoric Corsican, and his successors
have even fallen into other errors from
the same cause. Russia is directed by a
purely j ersonal government, the will of
the monarch being the undisputed law of
the State. If the representative of this
august and unquestioned authority is
weak, as Catherine was. as Alexander was,
it is easily to be seen that Russia may be
directed into a line of policy that no
statesmanship can explain. Personal
vanity might prompt the Czar into a war
that all the interests of his subjects would
be opposed to, but which their united
voice could not arrest
If enmity exists between Russia and
Prussia, we can not account for it on any
other ground than that the Czar has fallen
into a jealous mood toward his great
neighbor, whose fame now fills the world,
and eclipses that of all the other Euro
pean powers. Prussia has no ambition
that conflicts with the will of Peter the
Great. Under that instrument which is
said to be the political chart of the Ro
manoff family, the forces of Russia are
always directed to the extension of the
empire iu the direction of Asia and the
south of Europe. Constantinople and
the Caucasus have been the objective
points of Russian aggression for years,
and since Prussia has not at present, nor
ever had, any pretensions iu that way,
the interests of the two States are appar
ently without any real conflict. The
aggrandizement of the latter in the direc
tion of Denmark and the Rhine is not
reasonably objectionable to Russia, since
the Czar can have no hopes of ever being
permitted to extend bis own sway in that
direction. It is, therefore, impossible
account for the present reported
enmity between Beilin and St. Peters
burg on any other suggestion than that the
■imperor Nicholas has grown to be jealous
of the greatness of Emperor William, and
is willing to assist in reducing the power
of a monarch who has suddenly sprung
into the position of dictator in Central
Europe. If this idea is correct, and
jealousy is the root of the trouble, it would
be folly to attempt an explanation of what
probable consequences are liable to spring
from the complication. A vanity which
is so overwhelming as to allow its owner,
iu a jealous moment, to disturb the peace
of a continent, is capable of tbe most ex
travagant efforts, and the great strength
of Russia, which is entirely at the dis
posal of the Czar, may be wielded for the
shallowest of objects to accomplish very
terrible results. As we do not believe
that the Emperor of Russia is as weak as
he is represented to be in tni.s particular,
we can not believe the telegraph when it
assures us that Russia and Prussia are
arming for a war about a cause of quarrel
which is not even reported.
Frank Blair nominates B. Gratz Brown,
Governor of Missouri, as the next Demo
cratic candidate for President of these
United States. As Blair has hitherto re
pudiated reconstruction because it was
revolutionary, and denied the amendments
because they were frauds, and as Brown
has supported reconstruction because it
was wise and wholesome, and accepted
the amendments because they were the
legally enacted law of the land, it is al
most impossible to reconcile Blair's nomi
nation with his principles. If somebody
will explain from the mark of this serpent
whether it is coming South or going
North, a great riddle will be solved.
Oil CAR0NDELET STREET.
The general business of yesterday was
dull. True, there was some nervous agi
tation in gold on Wall street, which com
municated the feeling to Carondelet, out
ot sympathy. Gold tried hard to stand
H2y(5ll2I, but failed to remain at
either station. Here, the rate was from
111 \(ii 111 j ; this was determined by the
sales made. This responsive feeling with
New York also extended to foreign ex
change, which was firm at an advance
rate, and in which no one had any deal
ings except pricked on by compulsion.
In State bonds there have been no sale.s
for sometime—no operations. About a
month ago, a lot cf what are called
"Sixes' sold at a good rate, and we appre
hend this is the only transaction for some
time. The State credit is gooel. The in
terest is promptly settled up, and at all
hazards is not allowed to step over the
day, which method will make any State
paper good.
Money is still easy, and loan.-, on good
collaterals can easily be had at a rate
from 8 to 10 per cent.
But the sole sensation on the street yes
terday was the animation exhibited in
Levee stock. Wild statements went fly
ing about that the stock "couldn't be had
for $11 to S13, and it will be $15 before
the end of the week." Hearing the prices
bruited about with such "a wide margin"
between the fingers, of course, no one
would sell, for fear if a pause was had he
could get double his money in an hour.
So the animation soon played out. and be
fore the close of bank hours nearly every
one was shrugging his shoulders. Such
statements as "the contract's completed
and signed by McComb and Scott," "it
will be promulgated to-morrow," were re
peated on all sides, while out of all the
conversation only these facts could be
gained: that the contract was actually an
accomplished thing, and that the Levee
Company directors would meet on Mon
day.
In the early morning hour a sale of 100
shares was made at $9 25, and scarcely
had the holder pocketed $925, before the
news was in the street that "sent it kit
ing." Then commenced a systematic
game of "bluff" which amounted to noth
ing. Finally, after the close of bank
hours, 100 shares ol the stock were sold at
$10 25 a share, and 100 shares at $10 50,
and a recapitulation shows that the stock
was sold yesterday for the price of $9 25,
$10 2-5, $10 50, and here it stands iu such
au unsettled condition that a smarter man
is required to tell whether it will go down
or up, than to "keep a hotel."
As usual, the "old fogies " are always in
the foreground of any retrogade movement
so to say, for soon as it does not admit
of a doubt that Messrs. Scott and McComb
have bought into the company, than a cry
is immediately raised that "we would have
given better terms." It is probably this
element is working vigorously to make
the terms of the Law nugatory on the
dog in the manger idea, that ' 'what they
can't enjoy themselves nobody else shall
have. "
The sale previously alluded to, of fifty
shares of Fertilizer at $19, was not au
thentic. The holder informed us it was
a sham two days after it had been made,
and had ' ' got in £he papers. "
City appropriation certificates were still
all the rage, and were sold readily at a
good price, their consideration being
based on a faith that the city will soon
pay up.
Other "insecurities," in the shape of
stocks and promises to pay in bonds soon
as au event occurred, were brought up
and put down again immediately, lest the
light should make them useless.
The latest accounts show that flour,
which has got as far as New York, is
firm, but here it is flat and drooping.
As a matter of course, the prices are going
down where they move at all, and when
not moving remain stationary. With a
large stock on hand, the export interest
satisfied, orders having all been filled, it
is difficult to imagine anything more dull
than the flour market.
In cotton there was the same feeling
as iu stocks. No one wanted to sell, and
purchasers were in no maimer particular
to buy. Prices remain unchanged. The
market is tied up and dyspeptic—full of
wind and lead. In New York, cotton is
also very quiet and steady, and our own
market is in sympathy with them all.
In regard to the cotton worm, "opinions
differ:" still we might "a tale unfold"
about this insect that might be true or
not, every one's tongue being weighty
with it. This season of great dullness
and oppression is but the calm before
the storm, aud is the best forerunner of a
commotion in the elements of money
hiaking such as comes now and then to
Show the great law of nature consists in
the "ups and downs of life."
i The United States Treasury was bene
fited last Thursday to the extent of $10,000,

Britain for its share ot the expenses of the
Hudson Bay and Puget Sound United Com

fince. ^__

tbe last ten years has been 360,000, almost

slu-W'e arc much in want of two of your FAMILY'
SEWING MACHINES, and propose to give you iu
exchange for them, one each. Singer and Wheeler
i Wilson. Is you accept our offer it will take from
us the last el' hve of the other patterns of
machines that w T e have disposed of to give place
to yours.
We have had much experience with several of
the leading Sew ing Machines, and feel that we can
sa;-, without injustice to any one, that the
ELASTIC STITCH MACHINE
Of your Company's nink is far superior to
auy tLut we have used. Its simplicity,
small effort required to operate, and the griat
strength aud elasticity of its seam, are qualities
w e have never found equaled in any other. Since
the int rod -ct'.on of your Sewing Machine into our
Asylum, it has always been the favorite with our
children, and often a source of much contention
among them, as to who should have the pri vilege
of its use.
Daring the past two years we have had five ot
your Sewing Machines in constant use, and large
quantities of work of every description for fami
lies has been done on them. We have never had
any complaint from those for whom the work has
been done, but, on tiie contrary, much praise for
the beauty and perfection of the machine stitching.
We most earnestly hope that you will accept our
proposition to exchange and favor us by sending
your maebiues at tbe earliest opportunity.

PROCLAMATION BY THE GOVERNOR.
Stats of Louisiana, )
Executive Department, }
New Orleans, May 25, 1871. V
Whereas, An act of the Legislature approved
March 15, 1355, entitled "An act to establish quar
antiue lor the protection of the State," provides
that the Governor of the State shall issue his proc
