It is becoming more and more apparent that however oplposed the loyal lovers of State Cnstitutional Rights, may be to national intuirference in the conduct of affairs in any of the States, circumstances of no grave and momentous a character are taking pLice in many of them, that there is no alternative left, but to invokS the powL,'f l arm of national strength and vit:dity for the preservation of pec-e ;nd order, and for the secuiity and pre tection of lije itscli We approve of State ,Rights, but the State has no right to neglect tle e.tabli.shmcnt of a com petent and efectice police system, and abandon her citizos to the "tender mer cies of the wicked," who scrifioe life and prolperty, inflict injuries of every descripti i on her helpless citizens in her very face, if not with her consent When a State through her Representa tives, so Ltr abaudo:cs her duty the obli gation cannot but be transferred to the 1'edcral lt'.p,rescntative. Congress has been slow to wake up to the recognition of the full import of the relation of the Feder:al Go,vt rnrment to the States in an emergency not threatening the national life. And alth:ugh the fourteenth amnendmraent to tho Constitution of the United Status conferred special power to enforce its provisions by appropriate le gislation, vyt for nearly two years have the StateLs Ctequiri:g, iand the people bc see&ching anmd deserving Congressional in terfercnce, and the protection of the Governanent,been loft to endure the long cat'dbt e of aelll essi and numbeiless wrongs at the hands of every murder ous orga:nization1 springing into exist ence, and increasing at every turn by the forbearance, if not indifference of the only power competent to effectually res train and punish. This is happily pas sing away now. Congress is fully aroused. The violcuce, thp boldness of Ku-Klilux organizations, the flagrancy of their crimes, :an:d the open undisguisel insu':t andl hostility to the Government, have at last reachexi Congressional ears, anl toullche.l C.onre.-sinal hearts, and now they ''"will u," aol exercise the power in them vested to insure peact and se curiLtv t,life and l.roserty, and resplect to the n.tLional administration. 'The President has asstuned the exercise of supreme power in one place, and given the murderous organizations twenty days to disperse and retire peac ab:y to their homes; and Co:ngress is di~scas.sig a stringent measure for the enforcement of the fourteenth constitution:d amend meat. Thus may we hope that ere long, the wicked connivance, or apathy of those in authority in so mauy of the Southern States, will be superseded by the honest and vigilant defenders of the Rights of man, which take lawfal prece denco over any fictitious or even real right of 4tates. We shall hail as one of the most salutory of Reconstruction ad juncta, the passage of this meaure, ren dered nece-eary and prerepiptorily de manded by the needs of the times. Expectation is on tiptoe all oyr the country, looking for the report of the Commissioners of the San Dpmingo business. In the meantime Senator Sunner is losing no opportunity to ar raign and condemn the entire policy y the Federal Government in generl, pd the part being enacted by Presi4ent, Grant in particular. The Senators series of resoluticons, which he introduced in the Senate, recites ms reprehensibie, the alleged acts of the administration in menacing San Domingo by the presence and cruining of a naval force ; and from the attitutde assumed, and the vebhmene with which the acquisition is oppaed by him, it is becoming evident that trouble boles the PrcsIdents' scheme. The Ex-Emperor, Napoleon le pli, as Victor Hugo calls him, ' England, the general refugee asvl and h had interview with Queen .ttoria,o hour' length. Of course be denouui eve thing and everybody engaged i. endeav oring to establilh a Republic 'in France and in this course he will naturally be encouraged and sustained by the Mon archial and Imperial Governments around A late dispatch makes him say: "All siyeforts shall be nceasingly directed against the rebels who have conspired for the ruin of France, which ir the only hope to them of carrying out their sinis ter designs. These men I will force to make amends to my poor people, which they can only do by asking directly after their will, and then submitting to it-with out opposition." In the meantime, efforts at the forms tion of a new ministry are going on in France. Thiers has addressed the Na tion:al Assembly and pledges himself not to betray -the Republic. Whether it is possible for the factions which now dis tract France to quietly compromise their grievences, appeal to the popular voice, and abide by their decision, is a problem which nothing but time can solve. That there will be powerful, if not extensive, efforts made to restore the Empire, we have no doubt, and we believe that ere long Napoleon will endeavor to prove that the French are "my poor people." The New Orleans Slandrd of yester d y ir' awfully wrathy r g inst Governor V;rmoth. It goes for rim from begin ning to end. Give the "struggling young man" a chance, brother, and wait till he gets on his feet again. There is every probability that the work of constructing levees for the pro tection of property in the rear of the city, and for the reclamation of swamp lands in that vicinity, will soon be com menced. At last the lovers of law have cause to congratulate the community on the vin dication of justice, in the prosecution and conviction of burglars. The verdict of the jury, in the case of the State against Capdeville, Bertin, and others,en gaged in the Rochereau robbery, is re ceived with heartfelt thanks by every law abiding, honest citizen. A writer in the Ni'w Orlenns R4epul'ican of Tuesday last, makes an unseemly ani unreasonable attack on the Superintend ent'of Public Education, attributing all the failures in the carrying out of the Common School System to this fuuction ary. We do not profess to be the cham pion of Mr. Co:way, but we are av r-e to laying on a man's shoulders mere of a burden than he shou:l bear. It will be remembered that the School law of 1570 was not dMr. Conway's. The complicated machinery which entanglel the working, o, that measure grew out of the amend ments made to the Bill by the Senate at the suggestion and under the influence of arguments by Senators Campbell and Eagan. The present measure, as amend ed promised to redeem the system from rmany of the embarrassments surround ing it, and doubtless would have considera bly done so, but the law makers by sub sequent legislation limited taxation to two per cent on property in the City, while the School law required the City Council to levy a tax for the support of the Public Schoolas. Parties not in sympathy with the school system and eagerly watching every opyo=tunity to oppose its action imme diately recognized the legal grond offered for opposition, and forthwith exception was taken, and the City Council declined to assess the tax. The matter every one knows is before the Courts. The Hon. H. C. Dibble, the chairman of the City School Board, has appealed to the supreme Court; and this is the posture of affairs at present Under this condition of things we cannot imagine with what justice, the accusation against the superintendent of Public Education is made. SThe official printer has trn-ed out a very creditable pamphlet containing the report of the Department of Public Accounts of the city of New Orleans for the six months ending December 81, 1870, and we tender Amlinistrator Shaw our thanks for the copy sent us. Ax Ixa;uso aaswr D~Iu--A correspondent of the Tribune in gosiping about Stevenson's bookltore, Edinbulrgh, tells of a wager laid there which called out a letter from George Crau~bkank, under date of Nov. 12, 1870, as to his share in the illustration of Diclkes' works. He said that he did much less than was generally supposed, a mistike atrising from the imitation of his style by "Phia" (BPblot K. Browne) anpd other artists He continues : I Was, however, the fir artist to illustrate any of Mr. Dickens' wdtinp and the earliest of these was the first volume of "Sketbee by Boa"' J~JwM 1836), and the next was the second volume ,mder this title, $he 6e of whi4 were r n fr hinj Sie time after thM *. Bent staied his ?ielleny, poisntin Dickens as editori and myself as ills trator ; and the first plate in that work is a design of mine, which Mr. Dickens wrote up to. Therl was also a wood-cut of a Beadle, &c. Then followed  "Oliver Twist," which was entirWy my oers d sd- i a s-g.anm' -wuu 4 and a t Mr carmler are mine. And this will s un for the fact of "Oliver Twist" being eory different from any of his oler writings. When Mr. MeCrone, the publisher, Ailbd (he having published the ' ketch.b til Bos"), a volume was brought out fot the benefit of his widow. Mr. Diekebs' wrote some part of this, which I illustrat ed, and these are all the designs and these are all the designs ,and etchings thlt I did to illustrate the orks of that author. I am preparing to publish an explanation of the reason why I did not illustrate the whole of Mr. Dickens' writings, and this explanation will not at all redound to his credit. GOIAa, Pan.-ProL Wlecox, in re calling an interview with Prim, in Appe Ion's Journal, pays him the following tri bute: "Like Lincoln, Prim falls just as his work is doune just as he has guided the State through a great revolutirn. Both *were hated alike by tories and dreamers; both were upheld by masses. Like Na poleon in Franoe, Prim had the rare union of judgment. and nerve that en abled him to see' and to do what each in stant needed. Whether his aims were unselfish de pends on definitions. In a land where the army is everything. he, thirty years ago, saw that the future belonged to liberal views and cautiously so said The only general of known progressive feel ing, the progrewsiste' hopes centered on him. While that party was down, he spoke and acted with great care, so as to win the love of the troops, keep the par ty's favor, and retain his rank. When the three liberal parties of Spain came into power, Prim came back from exile at their head, and during the trying and eventful two years since, has toiled 'to found freedom of thought and expres sion firmly in ruined Spain, and at the same time to keep himself in power and fill his purse. All three he has some what done; and, having led to the estab lishment of the new order of things, he passes from the stage as the king he has made steps on the soil he has helped to free. [Prom the N. Y. World.] BLOODSHED IN PARIS. Another terrible tragedy was enacted in Paris on Wednesday evening. A procession of citizens bearing a banner upon Which was inscribed "Hommes d'Ordre," was marching down the Rae de la Paix, when the insurgent troops stationed in the Place Vendome fired into it, arusing a dreadf t slaughter. The soldiers continued firing into the crowd as it ran. People were killed in the streeta at the distance ofa mile. The Rue de la Paix was one pool of blood. As soon as the news of the mnsesase apead through the city the e citemmnt was at fever heat. A prodls mation was plawarded, signed by the Paris deputie.asaling for vengeance "for this tremsendous outrage" At the latest advices the insurgents sil held the city. No man's life is consideed safe. The Bourse is deserted, the citizens stre gloomy. It is reparted.that another "general-eeral ,Baphael--has been assassinated. General Chansy is still a prisoner. The insmrgents have organized a government of their own They have a minister of war and a minister of foreign afairs, and their new general-ine-*Irf is ofne Lirier. Of course the vagabond cslatan Choeret, has turned up theus mad figures as a minister.

Promptly did (averi or Clayton respond to the" ll' for pro teetio, 'and as result ' this auihan ance of the laws of the State by troops of the State, tranquility and obedinee: to the eanstituted authorities hasdeter since prevailed in Arkanas. The' elee tion of last year is still fresh in the minds of all, but despite the bold, compact re sistance of open enemies, and the insidi ous wiles of place-holding and pretended Republicans, the Repnblieb party was enosesesiil, and by a lnre majority the people indorsed the State administr&tivn.' In aeoordanes with this popular indorse went, the General` Assembly :iterated the people's will by electing Governor Clayton to the Senate. Then came the effort to impeach the Gonnor, and de spite the strenuous endevora'of his per sonal and political enemies to setMtanti ste the infamous charges that thr pre ered---the committee appointed to con duct the prosecution reported that it qould -not prevail, for the reason that no evidence existed, whereapen the Home of Representatives, by asvote of 49 ayes to 18 nays, ordered the pro secution to be discontinned, and directe'l the cancelation of all its previous action in the case. Then followed the second Senatorial contest, and matters having been so arranged that the Gubernatorial sucoession would devolve npon one wtibo would enjoy the confidence of Republi cans, the name of Governor Clayton was presented to the Legislatdre, and sixty members thereof--- majority in each House, and all of them Republican- voted for Powell Clayton as United States Senator for the ensuing six years Governor Clayton leaves the State in. a prosperous condition--within'it art two. railroads nearly completed, and tour more in the course of eonstructioi.
