WfE FAG END OF JOUVI l MLIM Since the elevation of Senator Pinchbeck to the position of Lieu- and tenant Governor, the VIationid Fag wil that disgraces the name of Repub- s lican has poured forth a torrent of tiv abuse and vilification against the a new Lieutenant Gozernor unwar- dim ranted by facts and unjiistified by pla the ethics of decent journalism. In that sheet falsehood has followed ezx misrepresentation, and searcely has kn one calumny gone out before an other slander has followed it. Silent fall contempt must cease to be dumb in the the midst of such outrageous per- ten secution. No one with manhood beating at the heart can stand for ever the rheum of a set of sneaks who s whipped out of the Republican party nor have found their only resource to d consist in the vilest display of col venom compatible with the viper, p nor can reason produce silence, the though its pure light shows us all, I that personal vituperation is always pe the low resort of those who have no a other argument at their call, and is me a characteristic of a blackguard. th From the time Mr. Pinchback was of pronounced Lieutenat Governor th: until the very hour at which we wl write, the Fag has not ceased to H snarl and show its teeth which, in making evident as it does that the Di Fag End of the Republican party ro have been so soundly beaten, that pitching dirt is now their last hold, : yet calls for a rebuke from every Pt man, interested in the extikpation , of all barbarism. The writers and ti( , promoters of such emanations live li, in a glass house. W e know their i record. If such were not the , cace t'ie great zeil in be half of their present affiliation at . would lead, of itself, to suspicion. , Whatever Mr. Pinchback may have tL done hastily, he has never sacrificed 11 his principles, his country, or his j kind. Nor has he sold out his ad- al herents or his friends. True he had el always a contempt for a set of mean be white men, who, while they curried hi favor with him to procure political w influence, at the same time would hide to walk with him in the street. He has even now a loathing for a h hypocrite that disguises his malice h in a fawning cant, and who only ii shows the devil in his heart when a E. it will no longer serve his purpose to play the saint. Though willing ri a to acknowledge the Providence of God, Mr. Pinchback never carried a the politician and the preacher un w. der the same skull. A Republican of a the straitest sect now, he was one in t the past. He has never left his home for a place which his people i. refused to accord him. He is not disappointed, nor is he suffering e from a sad attack of veto. His ] policy ii "reform" and already he t has severed, pulled up by the roots the "dead beats" of journalism in this State. He would not entinue c such an outrageous nuisante in the premises of the Government. Here is the cause of the whole business. These journals so ruthlessly cut off in the prime of life were the pap upon which these people of the Fag - subsisted. As to any and all asper ts sions on the ofticial conduct of Mr. to Pinchback, we cast it in the teeth of ry thosewbo utter it. The editor of the he Fag tannot prove himself honest by calling every other man a thief, nor is it possible to show he ii right by denouncing his opponents, as, in the wrong. "He who first loses he his temper has lost the battle also," the and if "gentlemen"' are made of such material as showed itself in the e colums of the Fag let us all travel et in the opposite direction. If "the Pinchback supporters rep resent nothing in Louisiana," whom do the Carter men represent? A fugitive from his adopted State, this Swould be Governor, aeording to lew the Galveston papers, "l'eft his coun Stry for his country's good." At Shome he cannot command a corpo Sof al'sb guard, and could not be elect ed an acting sab-assistant deputy i- constable. By his own confession a heis "Jack of all trades, master of m none." In the ecurse of a few years ret he huaasuceeively appered as a we psalm-inging hypocrite, a pettifog ill ger, a false friend, a obbyia poli ith tician and a newspaper alng-whan dget. In all of these apacities the a personal charaster of the man u a traculent lick-piatt has ~aopped [his out from hLe mnasktf a ~god per dies pseee which fits him so badly that like the jackaes who wdald wear the lions skin, he cannot hide, do what me he will, the as's ears. ent Under wilful and peuaietent mis of representation, distortion of the - truth, warping of published state t ments and direct mainntions we e have remained almost silent.

The most amusing and exhibition of the deplorable lack of shei knowledge he possesses, or the chat depth of depravity to which he has mat fallen, occurs in the latest effort of not the Grand Err, at satire on Lieu- Is b tenant Governor Pinchbeck. mai Mr. Pinchback on assuming the he position of President of the Senate, beo said with reference to his predeces- clai sor, "I am led to believe that Oscar Rig J.

Great heavens, how, roe e when and by what means, was J. Pi 0 H. Hurch ever authorized to speak ert ', in a representative capacity for Mr. the e Dunn ? But his presumptuous ar- lice t rogance is. fully eqtalled by his I ignorance of facts. sa We are not aware how long the ele y public men and the politics of spi n Louisiana have engced the atten- set d tion of this Apollo, but this de- for e liverance betrays either an utter hit ir ignorance of the earlier political re- pit ie cord and connexion of the twt, magnates referred to, or a wilful ' attempt at the falciScation of the n record. It is well known that in `e the Republican party convention of qu 1868, Mr. Pinchback nominated O. is J. Dann for Lieutenant Governor, en and in presenting to and urging his sit claims on the consideration of that go botdy spoke of his choice in the in Id highest terms. In the Senate over Pi al which the late Lieutenant Governor id presided, Mr. Pinehbaeck never lost so an opportunity to support or to de a fend hini, and the record shows 0e how frequently, and in what flatter- in ly ing terms he referred to him. We in en admonish this raw and rash recruit se to the ranks of the villifiers not to °g rush so madly, so blindly, so innn- a of cenly on the bosses of the buckler pl ed of trth. 2- But "dying men catch at straws," f and we find apt illustrations of this t truth in the despairing manner, o is and the convulsive grasp, in which at le Burch, Carter, etc., attempt to e lot destroy the confidence of the color- o ng ed people in Lieutenant Governor o [s Pinchback, than whose efforts in h4 he the interests of his race and the it ) Republican partyt none of the ear- e in lest, the most staunch, the most t ne consistent, are more brilliant and it be creditable.
