The tmil and smet of our rare have enriched its oppreseori, our blood and tears have kept civilization afloat, and our physical vita.ity along with our natural imitativeness have triumph ed, over prejudice and proicription to such an extent that they now claam us as their chi'dren, iustea. of recognizing us as th-lr v:ctis.

I The democrats must fight us, it is a political necessity.

Political measures, passed under exigencies which none understood pae better than those who passed them, tho legislative measures enacted as safe guards to previous legislation, with the full understanding that tim they were to meet a political crisis, are now assailed by democrats who ati( nee I texts for reactionary sermons, :and these sermons are endorsed by ach m.uubitious men in our own party who drii e home a democratic wedge without seeing they mntst inevitably can in ike a republican split in the effort. e' It srenis to us that those who at cir his time forget their party in re- th :nembr:nce of personal dislikes, or mi in cherishing personal preferences, lht 1:ue such as realize the adage of al •"bitIng off one's nose to spite his lik face." What does a democrat care for a republican if he be a false one? int He knows that such a man can have m no, power in his own party. What ac can he do, with a true republican?- tu l:,tthing.

B.maf NEW NATIONAL nA, Ad Ou highly respected centempo- the rary, the iae Natiooal Era says: fro "THE NEW ORLEANS 8EMI WEEKLY LOUISIANIAN. "lThi is apolitial newspaper, own- it ed, edited, managed, and publish- n ed by colored men. Its proprietors it are Hon. P. B. S. Pa'cisacuEC. C. e. AsTOINE and GEORGE Y. KELso, and Es its editor is WuLIua G. Baowx. J, We have be:ore us No. 46 of the first volume of the Louisianian, and have been greatly cheered in peru- ic sing its contents, not only by the or wisdom and justice" which as a gen- the eral rule characterize its colums, en; but by the neat and elegant appear ance of the paper itself, evincing the presence of taste, industry, skill ability, and last, though not least, 25 We unierscore money. Nearly ;11 the failures in newspaper entaer prises among colored men which we fez ihave been called upon to deplore fry during the last thirty years (and they by are imany) have been due to the fully of startiug them without money and delpending upon the p .plle to come to their support in every time of need. A netlsplper, like a man, will be helped up if it can get up; and if it cannot help itself up, it wil iu due sea son be helped down. The managers tel of the paper now before us seemn to un- of derstand this essential condition of success, and are laying out money liberally. We observe with satisfaction Al that Mr. J. SaLLa MARTLN, formerly editor of the NEw Ens., has been et tac/ked to the editorial staff of the Lou- Ik isiuien. Mr. Martin is a brilliajit writer :.:n4 a elohuent speaker. If he n I can only IJe conteUt to pull st aily ill this new harness for a few years we fe' have no doubt that both the paper and th the man will become powers in the ha sunny Sauth. Mr. Martin loses no . more in dignity by consenting to be an uaWche of the Louisi, niea than the in I editor of this paper did by going to I we Santo Domingo as amsistaut secretary e of the Commission. When two men rile a horse one must ride behind. %Ie certainly wish the Louisiani'u de every success, and shall watch its as course with a .incere and friendly in- in teret." fa We have to say by way of correc tior, that this paper is founded up- cm onaba ;is of ssured su:e Es, which n( depends upon no one man in the is concern--our enterprise is not of the in Washington type. The LouisrmxA.z 1 was a success before it secured the invaluable contribution* of J. Sella C .Martin Esq., and we intend to make bý it a continued success even though there should occur the misfortune cl of losing Mr. Martin's assistance. C The New National Era is right when C it underscores "money"-it is a tre nmend.us power in this world; and a had there been more of it in the h S -w E'.a we doubtlees would not have its first editor in our corps of a ~ontributors. As to Mr. Martin "pulling stead- I ily in his present harness," that is I u.is own affair. But we may say in passing that whatever harness he has pulled in he has at least pulled d up to a point where he has secured I t,. the cnfidence and respect of his " race, and if there be peculiarities S.,f character in lim in dropping thing, ia his own way, they are ? , such as so far have prevented him from rotting on a deadlevel of worn- I ; out experuiments. r We feel sure that the insinuation Sabout Mr. Martin's instability could not have Leen made by the Editor of the Nery National Era, for no one . knows better than he that MIr. Martin's peculiar talent ha', as is . usual, been associated with a dis position according with it, and what 1 :s better, both talent and disposi r's tion seem to have accorded with i providential decrees since Mr. Martin has done better by moving than the New Era has done by 1. standing still R Itr/ REvouxiosNR Faz IN FuNcr.

These questions are the non-existence of the constitutional rights of secession, the abolition and perpetual prohib- a ition of slhvery, and the equality of wit all men before the law. Republic- suil ans have furthermore urged on them the propriety of acknowledging the si validity of the public debt, and the elef duty of the nation to discharge it in ae coin, according to the terms of the contract, and in accordance with uxq the good old Democratic doctrine tins that there was no money known to the GovernmeLt qf the United wit State except hard money. Ha For six years the Democrats have .ts, resolutely refused to do any of thes- no things. They have encouraged the tifi South in the belief that the war had of settled nothing except the momen- a tary superiority of the North in bu strength. They have denied the All validity of the three amendments ant which put into legal form the de fac- lu to changes effected by the war in the status of certain classes of citi- Sp zens, and provided fresh securities of against unequal or discriminating an legislation ; and they have persis- wil ted in denying the validity of the an assurances given by the Govern- ftil ment in the hour of its extremity to occ the persons from whom it borrowed att money as to the amounts they would receive in payment-or, in 'ni other words, have stoutly mai'- hr tained that if one borrows money um when his credit is very low, heiany. ob afterwards, honestly repay it us if th his credit had been very good when It lie borrowed, no matter what the - terms of his contract were-a doc- to trine for which it would be difficult la to claim any higher source than the mock-auction shop or the faro bank. They have fought tihrtugh two Presidential campaigns ou thi o i policy of negation, and have failed miserably " in both. They coulti not get the country to acknowledge r tlhat nothing was changed by the war. Sand that the one business of sensible mecn was to get acrk as fast as lpossible to the point from which we started in I 1il1. What hasre made their peisis- C tence all the more extraordinary wia- i I the pLdinne.as with which the Repulmb- tI Slicans were profiting by it. There hji rarely Ieeen a party in power which. Ssince 1865, has offered so mny te:npt ing points of attack to an able and energetic opposition as the Republican " party. Its legislation for the South, e n ,nl its fimancial and foreign policy, although, perhaps, far better than the e Democrats would have furnished in I< , its plaee, and asgood as we had anSD re right to expect, were neverthelese fuli i. of imperfections of the grseesest and a most glaring kind, ont of which an Soppesition which was as numerically strong in the tonntry as the Delmocra tic oplposition was, might have made formidable use. The result of re~ons traction legislation at the South have 1 been pitiable; the manipullation of the ge 8ipreme Court has been shameful; Sthe debanucheryof the civil service-- I debauchery continued, too, most barefaedly in the teeth of strong pro feemsa of sel for reform - has been agrant, mad ilthree have appersant raorded asterial for an overwheIning Demoratic victory; yet thDem o ot crats have made nothing out of them whatever. The addreem of their mem bers of Congrems, at the close of the last session, read not like the indiet e- ment of eager and triumplmantameusers ed as itmight havebee made to red, but like the mbject apebg of men who have failed misrmbly, and do net know why.
