14TRICKS OF "BRIEF AU
THORITY."
The Committee authorized by
Congress to come to New Orleans
- to institute certain enquiries, appear,
er, from the unlimited range of their
scrutinies, to have formed a vastly
erroneous idea of their legitimate
powers, the purposes of their mis
ig, sion, or else a not very exalted esti
i, mate of the character, respectability
G. and intelligence of the business
It, men and officials into whose affairs
e they have been so unjustifiably pry
ing. Nor is the inquisitorial mode
> of their investigation calculated to
do aught than to compromise the
dignity of their mission, and des
troy respect for their conduct and
all regard for their integrity.
Either they or the public have
greatly misconceived the object of
their mission here. Their conduct
has been of such a character as
rather to impress the observer that
they are better pleased with those
statements which are personal and
: vindictive and for the gratification
of partisan malice, than with those
which show the exigencies under
which the State government re
cently was pushed to the use of ex
traordinary means to preserve its
vitality and existence, and the con
. duct of Federal officials at that time.
And the manner in which they
have been pushing their curiosity
so far beyond the legitimate sphere
of their duty we think justifies this
accusation. Many of the avenues
of their enquiries lead to the con
*" sideration of subjects utterly and
E. entirely beyond the control or en
a quiry of Congress itself and lie
within the exclusive control of the
. State. And the indulgence in
v. the vein which has marked the in
vestigation hitherto is only the pal
pable abuse of "a little brief an
r- thority," which we had not expect
ed from the hands of the gentle
men constituting the Committee.
And, if we mistake not, before they
get to the end of the string they
will be reminded from Washington
of the purposes for which they were 1
sent to New Orleans.
While we have to complain of
this matter in this manner, we have 1
been pleased with the unreserved I
mode adopted by the witnesses, and 1
we say this without reference to'
. any particular class of them. They
have all gone or been led beyond the I
r limits of evidence in such cases and I
e made such statements as they con
sidered damaging to their political I
f opponents, to the evident huge
gratification of the commissioners,
who seem to look upon the whole
thing as a fit subject for their mirth,
and a proper occasion for the indul
y gence of their curiosity or party I
e spleen. It may be advantageous to I
the State and the nation that the
malpractice of their servants should
be exposed and the perpetrators j
- brought to condign punianment, i
I but their are well established and
-definite methods by which these f
Sends are to be accomplished, and
the pursnance of the courses lead
ing to these ends are generally char
acterized by a becoming gravity and
circumspection.
But there appears in all the do
ings of the Committee, since it coim
menced its sittings, a disposition to
Sshow how completely silly and
childish the people are here, how
unnatural Republican institutions
are, and how unfit and unable we
are for self-government, and we
shall not be much mistaken to find
the principal part of their report to
be a delectable dissertation on these
topics, instead of an enquiry into
the causes and conduct of the re
cent imbroglio.
WThe special message of theE
Governor which we print elsewhere, tl
seems to have produced an inspi
riting effect on our Legislators, and tl
since its practicad reminders and
suggestions we find them applying bl
themselves ernestly to the con- ti
sideration a.d passage of such re
form and other necessary measmures
as cannot fail to convince the pub
lic of the honesty and integrity of
their repeatedly declared purposes.
WDid we not say the Carter
coalition were not reformers? Mark a
you. Every movement made to- n
wards the enactment of reform has a
been met by efforts of the so-called or
reformers to stop itinconfusion and th
turbulence. aIi

Q- TIm TO HABMONIZE.
The pseaable election two or
by three days ago of officers, for the en
=s suing twelve months, in the Third
ar, Ward Republican Club of this city,
air furnishes us the opportunity to sug
tly gest the absolute importance of
its hence forward laying down that
is- bitternees and hostility which has
ti- divided our people, and in view of
;ty the great work to be accomplished,
use and the great battle to be fought in
ire November, organize and harmonize
- a!l the Republicans of the Ward.
de No good, temporary nor permanent
to can be accomplished by division
he and strife. Nothing but unmixed
s- evil can come to the Republican
ad party of a split in its ranks. In
view therefore of these facts and
ve considerations let every Republican
of discountenance and frown down
lct any attempt at division in the Re
s publican ranks in future.
at Let the leaders and controllers of
,se the party, give no countenance
ad whatever in the future to the efforts
n of the demagogue and the unscrupu
se lous aspirant after notoriety. Let
er our organizations be preserved in
tact. Each ward with its one
mother club, and every member of
it such club be willing at all times
to sub-ordinate his private prefer
L. ences of one Republican over an
other, to the will of the majority
and for the benefit of the whole.
The time is fast approaching when
ias a party we will need all the unity,
es all the oneness of purpose, and all
the numbers that we can secure and
d command to successfully contend
against the serried legions of our
"well drilled" enemies. And now at
e this early period, at this initial step
n of one of our wards we throw out
these remarks for the consideration
of our friends.

t- ANOTHER FALSEHOOD
NAILED.
'y Dr. Southworth who has been ac
y cused of inducing Senator Lewis to
n, vote for the election of Mr. Pinch
-e back as President of the Senate,
feels that while on his own account
)f he might be unwilling to "notice
e newspaper impertinencies" yet in
d justice to Senator Lewis he writes
d to the 'ltional Republican, from
o whose crowd it originated and in
y whese columnusit has been perpe- i
e tuated, and over his signature re
Spudiates the use of any improper
means to procure, or to change the
a vote of Senator Lewis on the occa
e sion named.
The Doctor says emphatically: i
e "After Senator Lewis had voted for
Pinchtack, andi while Senators and
others were urging him to change
his vote, I approached and laid my
y hand on his shoulder with a fami- t
a liarity justified by our 'long ac
e quaintance, and, in the presence
and hearing of those around, said,
"Don't do it. It is better as it is. r
Don't change your vote ;" and this e
, is the sum of the whole matter.
I Will the Fags stop repeating this i
3 fabrication after this ? t
SThe Governor's testimony
before the Congressional Committee n
contains the distinct charges, sup
ported by documentary proof, that
the troubles and commotions here '
of late are caused by the interfer- 9
ence of Federal officials in the con
trol of the government of the State.
Nor is this charge solely the result
of partisan feeling, it is true. Had
the Customhouse been a Democratic p
stronghold, as it was before the p
war, such conduct could be expect- b
ed, but making a pretence to Re- tl
publicanism and at the same time ii
making an attempt to destroy the p
Republican party is inconsistent and c
revolutionary, and has been the il
topic of universal condemnation. tl
SHad the office-holders, who ordered tl
Sthe military here in August to pro- c
Stect their own crowd and intimidate
their opponents, been removed, no
turbulence would have existed, no la
blood won!d have been shed, no
time wasted and genuine reform a
would have been the result. ci
lci
aiiCarter is a first class reformer. st
Under his administration the State in
spends $700,000 in the House;
$600,000 more than was necessary; 5
and he takes the position of attor
ney for a railroad at $10,000 a year (
as a bribe, according to the Govern-d
or's testimony; $5,000 a year from
the Jackson Raihvad, as a bribe,
and is now stalking about, the re- tu
cipient of an income of $25,000 a en
year at least These emoluments Si
depend on his continuing to be d
speker. It is no wonder he raised w
the devil to try and make th3 trip. im
THU ALABAMA CLADIM.
If the tone of the principal jour
nals of England is a fair indication
d of the popular sentiment of that
country on the settlement of the
g- Alabama claims on the basis as in
of terpreted by the American commis
st sioners there is great danger of a
i cessation of further consideration
of at present and the dismissal of the
d, general conference. In the present
in attitude popular sentiment has been
e aroused by the "indirect claims"
put in by Americans, while the
English only intended to recognize
n and adjudicate on "direct claims."
The London Times the organ of the
In government says "England should
demur to the American claim of
indirect damages, and if the Court
in of Arbitration reject the demurrer
rn she should withdraw from the sit
e- ting and from participation in the
case."
On this side of the Atlantic the
sound has not been disregarded, and
although the Government at Wash
u- ington has received no official noti
et fication of a rupture, members of
m Congress have already taken the
matter up. The Queen's speech,
delivered at the opening of Parlia
ment on the 6th, informs us that
r- "the arbitrators appointed pursuant
to the treaty of Washington for the
purpose of amicably settling the
e. Alabama claims, held their first
session in Geneva. Cases were laid
before the arbitrators on behalf of
d each party to the treaty. In the
case so submitted by the United
States large claims are included,
which are understood on my part
not to be within the province of the
arbitrators. On this subject I have
caused a friendly communication to
n be made to the government of the
United States."
Senator Edmunds has made a
speech, in the United States Senate,
calling for the correspondence on
the subject, and altogether seems
' disposed to abrogate "the treaty of
o Washington."
Diplomatic arrangements will
doubtless induce a happy state of
t things on both sides of the Atlantic,
e and the arbitrament of the sword,
2 which for the moment may he im
5 pending, be averted.
i The Picayune is exceedingly
irate at the Republican for baptizing
it the "Calico Pie" and displays its
r spite in particular anathemas of
Governor Warmoth. Yesterday
evening's issue pronounces on His
Excellency for his cheap patriotism
in recommending the repeal of ob
noxious bills and not signing them
after they were passed.
Does nt the Pic. know that only
the Senate passed the repeal bills
introduced by Senator Thomas ?
Does'nt it know that both Houses
must pass them before the Gov
ernor can sign or veto them ?
Does'nt it know that the Senate
has determined since the return of
the "Wilderness Senators" that
eighteen [the number present when
the repealing bills were passedf do i
not form a quorum ? t
If it knows these things, as it
ought to, where is the sense in its
repeating and harping upon silly
questions put by a Congressional
Committee who may be pardonably t
ignorant of them ?
IThe Fag of Tuesday quotes a
passage from a cotemporary that "a,
parson in" politics is worse than a
bull in a china shop,"and illustrates
the correctness of the position by (
instancing "Parson Conway." Sup
pose we correct this piece of ex
ceeding bad taste by pushiing the ]
illustration a step further and citing
the sad havoc that Parson Carter t
the Editor in Chief of the Fay, has
created in.Louisiana politics.
'A project is on foot in Eng- i
land to cheapen telegraphic com- f

"T$E NATION" ON CIVIL
RIGHTS.
The Nation of February 1, coq
at tains the following article with
reference to Mr. Sumner's supple
- mentary bill:
"Mr. Sumner has proposed an
amendment to the bill for the re
moval of the legal and political dis
ae abilitiee imposed by the Fourteenth
at Amendment to the Constitution,
jo which provides, under heavy penal
ties for opposition or obstruction,
2e for the admission of persons of color
e to all public conveyances by land or
,, water, all theatres and other places
of amusement, and to all schools,
Id churches, cemeteries, and benevo
of lent institutions incorporated by
national or State authority. Now,
there can be no question as to the
it propertyof forcing common carriers
to afford all citizens accommodation
on equal footing, and there is the
ie same thing to be said with regard
d to licensed innkeepers. Men must
travel on their lawful occasions, and
ti- the .means of travel are now, and
of indeed have been ever since stage
coaches were established, great
h monopolies, to which everybody
must resort nolens tvlen. In travel
at ling, too, one must often use inns,
ot and in large numbers of places there
is only one inn, and in most places
there are only a few; and there is
et hardly any place in the country
d which can support even one good
inn for persons of a particular race,
color, persuasion, or other small
class. To allow common carriers,
therefore, or innkeepers to refuse to
afford a man accommodation on the
ground of his color, is to arm them
with the power of inflicting a penal
ty which is sure at all times to be
e severe, and may sometimes be ter
rible, for it may prove one of the
ma ost ingenious combinations of in
sult and injury to which a human
n being can be exposed. In seeking
to deprive them of such a power.
f r. Sumner will have the sympathy
and support of all right-minded
1 men. It is preposterous to allow a
steamboat captain, navigating Amer
ican waters, under the American
flag, or a railroad company owing a
its very existence to the law, or an I
innkeeper carrying on his business t
with peculiar privileges, to degrade
and harass people because their
complexion raises disagreeable as- c
sociations in certain people's minds.
We may add, too, that the prejudice I
against color is supported by restric
tions directed against color. Thou- I
sands of people who could not bear I c
1 to ride in the street-cars with col- I
ored people in this city as long as a
the companies did not compel them
to do so, now that they must do so,
or walk, find no difficulty in it. C
Here we stand on firm ground, d
where there is no room for the play I
of taste." t
But the Niation objects to pushing a
the provisions so far as to secure n
equal rights in schools, theatres and t
cemeteries for all men. It admits e
that the distinction and expulsion
are absurd, but excuses it because
it is "a matter of taste," and al- ii
.though it would like to "see colored ft
people occupying such places in I
every theatre as they are able to tl
pay for, we desire to see them gain
admission through improvement in
the moral sense of the community
and not through the assistance of
the United States Marshal." h
Now, in the name of common E
sense, what is there so calculated to e:
'improve the moral sense of the iT
commuitv" better than such legisla- s5
tion demanded by the necessities ai
of the case, warranted by the high
est considerations National policy? al
It is a prejudice which has nothing S
"social" about it; nor does the fact cl
that a white man and a colored man ti
sit in the same kind of accommo- d
dation in the same church, school be
or theatre necessarily interfere one K
iota in the condition of either. As cl
for the effect of "levying penalties "~
for the display of prejudice in mat- 1
mrs in which the community does K
not believe to be in the domain law," st
we have to say that according to h
this line of argument, enactments tlb
would never rise above the general si
character of a people, whereva> it is h
well known that the laws f a coun- w
try are framed on the requirements Ai
of principles which are just and frI
immutable, and a right ,0pprecia
tion of what communities ought to
be, and not what they wish to be, in
:idnfluencing law makers, they en- hI
courage certain lines of conduct "I
and lay a band on others and in "[
this manner slow as the work may cr
progrem elevate humanity to aime
standard cf excellence, and "im- is
L prove the moral sense of the com
munity" as the Nhlom deserves.
That the present proscription of
q- the negro is palpably unjust and
th absurd the Nation knows, and that
e- it is willing to yield half of what we
claim we are not surprized at, and
in we hope the time is not distant when
e- all over this br3ad land, the entire
is- press will be found aiding to "im
th prove the moral sense of the com
n, munity" instead of retarding it, by
a- pandering to what it knows is an
n, unworthy and unnatural complex
or ional distinction.

W, that overseers' wages are now twice
or three times as high, as before
the war. This, to a stranger, seems
rs odd, since the crops are less profit

le it. Labor is much more difficult to
rd manage, and a good overseer is in
dispensable unless the planter fully
ut nderstands all the details of culti

"JEFF" DAVIS A YAIIEE.
A curious fact has come to light
here concerning Mr:Jefferson Davis.
Evidence has been found to be in
existence that, instead of being born (
in Kentucky, as has always been
supposed, and as he has always
asserted, he was really born in c
Massachusetts, and therefore, in- c
stead of being a pure-blooded son of i
Southern chivalry, he is only a Massa- a
chusetts Yankee. Lanman's ,,Die- e
tionary of Congress" puts Davis t
down rather indefinitely as having c
been born in Christian county,
Kentucky, in 1808. Persons who
claim to be well informed say that I
"Jeff" was born in old Stockbridge,
Mass., in 1808, and removed to t
Kentucky with his father when at
small child. His father is said to a
have been a wheelright by trade, and a
the house where he lived on one U
side of the road and the shop where c
he worked on the other s-le, are a
well remembered by living witnesses. t
