I ii!, I'tiN'I'IRIT IIIl,. Neither lithe 'im..s nor the l'ie·(ntnile is satisled( with the printing bill which has passed t he House and' is now await ing the action of the Senate. The Tirnmer states two objections. First: it thinks the journals of the two Houses should not be published. Secondly: it thinks the printing should be awarded to the lowest bidder. In this latter ob jection the 1'ia/itnce concurs, and objects generally to the bill. As the bill in its present shape con forms very nearly to our idea of what it ought to be, and the views expressed by us when we first suggested that the old bill should be repealed and a new and more econolilcial one adopted, we feel disposed to sustain the action of the House. The 7lnWsC d(oes not maintain that the journals of thoe houses should not be published because the public do not re quire the information they give of the proceedings of the Legislature. This objection, if it were true, would be a good one; one, in fact, conclusive against the publlcatlon or the journals. The Times objects to the official pub lication only because the daily papers make up and publish as news the pro ceedings. This argument is entirely fallacious. No special responsibility for errors in, or perversions and misrep resentations of, the proceedings attaches to a newspaper publishning them as news of its own accord. The papers publishing the proceedings thus, are at perfect liberty to publish as full or as meagre reports as they please; or to tinge them with their peculiar political or personal views. The Legislature would, under such a system, have no authority to insure the correct, regular and impartial publication of its pro ceedings. If, therefore, the public requires the publication of these journals, they should be published officially. This is the only question to be determined. If their publication is not required, then let the officilal publications be suspended and leave the different papers to give such versions of them as may please or proAlt their proprietors. In relation to the secoond objection, we entertain the same views that we previously expressed. A bill giving the State printing to the lowest bidder is not necessarily an economical measure; indeed, it proves, in the ma jority of cases, a very extravagant mI-aurl'e. measure. The prices fixed in the present bill are fair to both the State and the printer. They insure the latter a fair profit for his material and work, and, if the print ing board award the work to an honest man, the State will receive a full equiv alent for what it pays. The present bill indeed, if the work is awarded to men who will deal honestly with the State, will reduce the cost of the public printing many thousands of dollars. This is what we call a measure of re trenchment. No bill can accomplish this saving which does not rest the power somewhere in the State govern maent to select its printer. Were a bill enacted, providing that the printing be given to the lowest bidder, who would get the work? What inspired prophet could estimate what it would cost the State in the end? We presume, if the bill shall be amended to this end, there will be no bidders excluded; that all parties will be at liberty to bid, and that he who bids lowest, and gives his bond, will be asoorded the patronage of the State of Louisiana. The experience of mankind is, that in contests like this, where it is a cut throat business for public patronage, the party who can organize the most unscrupulous ring, can and will make the lowest bid. But thees sort of bidders always make' anm eyout of the job. There is no one -A< easy to swindle as the State, and ;r iss noi ing in which the State or har g a large and va r liit nt do, ta be so easily and egregiously swindled in as in printing. Were the public printing of this State awarded to the lowest bidder, we be lieve it would cost the State fifteen or twenty thousand dollars more than ft will cost under the present bill. And who would be likely to become the beneficiary of this business under the theory of the Tim,'. and P'ieall.une ? More than likely Messrs. Fish, Tracey, Ilerwig and Geo. L. Smith. These no ble patriots owe the most extensive printing establishments in the South; for years they have dlone the public printing; they have made hundreds of thousands ot out it; they have all the machinery, etc., for the work; they have a nowspaper which has been con dueted with more vigor and ability than any of the Conservative papers of the city; they would not have to lay out a cent to carry on the work, and they can give as large and as good a bond for the proper and honest performance of the work as any newspaper establishment. in New Orleans. If the printing Is to be awarded to the lowest bidder, Messrs. Fish, Hlerwig & Co., of the New Orleans Itepblican, have as much right to bid for it as any body else, and if they bid the lowest and offer the bond their bid cannot be re jected. It may be said that the politics of their paper are so objectionable that the people would not suatain it, and that, doing the printlng under ihis bill of re trenchtnent and rctfrm, tlhey could not carry out their contract. Those who may take this ground forgot that Messrs. Fish, Ilerwig & Co. are gentlemen of elastic integrity and ductile polities. Tiheo w rth i's, uild cr a chatnge of politlical ct,,nditions. , would have nIo motre dilf11ulty or hesitation in advancing to the political po sition held by the Times and Picafrutne when they were advocating the organi xation of a third party, than our es teemed .I servative contoemporarios had in advancing from that position, under the lead of the DEMOCRIIAT, to the standpoint of a united Democratic. Conservative party in the last can vass. Assuming this position with their paper with its unquestioned vigor a nd ability, Messrs. Fish & Co. could readily assumo a standard of respecta bility and hold a position in which they coald do the Democratic party inflnite ly more damage than they were able to do it while on the line of IRadicalism. Their ductile politics would enable them to do this, while their flexible morals and skill would enable them to wring many thousands more out (,f ', the low est bid " than any honest paper will ever get, out of the prices fixed in the present law. Under the present law, the printing, we have no doubt, will be awarded to responsible parties, who will deal hon orably with the State, doing their duty and receiving fair compensation for their work. Those of our friends who fancy the lowest bidder plan necessarily the cheapest one, should boar in mind that contracts, like laws, are good or bad, rather in their execution than in their forms; and that it is safer and cheaper to contract for fair prices with those you know than to be subjected to the mercy of doubtful characters. ONLY SIX IEIPUBLICAN ELECTORS FROM LOUISIANA. If the Electoral Commission should refuse to go behind the Governor's cer tificate in the Loulslana case, the elec Lion of Gov.

WM. P. KELLOGG. By the Governor: P. G. DesIost.E, Secretary of State. It will be observed that Mr. Kellogg certifies that 0. H. Brewster and A. B. Leviseo were dults, and in accordance with law, appointed electors on the seventh day of November, 1876. It is a notorious fact, admitted by all par ties, that Brewster and Levisee held offices of trust and profit under the United States on the seventh day of November, 1876. The constitution of the United States says: " No person holding an office of trust or profit under the United States shall be appointed an elector." Then there were but six electors appointed. The proces verbal of the Louisiana Republican Electoral College admits and shows fully the ineligibility, on the 7th of November, of these two electors, and that proces cerbal accompanies the certificate. Is it necessary to ask the question: "Could the people of Louisiana appoint or choose an elector who the Constitu tion of the United States says shall not be appointed ?" Hardly, even under the present loose construction of the fundamental law. Then what was the effect of votes east for these Ineligible would-be eletqorsa In legal ootea plation these voteWStr el) t all-suoh Is the general ruling-and under the law of Louisiana these eleo tors cannot be considered as having been duly voted for. Such, is the statute law of Louisiana, that au. ineligi ble elector, t'oted for nL fact, in law is "consilered as trot +dulj coted fer." I quote from the act of 1864, section 2828, Revised Statutes. Every quillltitni voter In thn lt.o shllll vlit', for ]Elctitorns si follows: 'T'wo porti.,ons shtll till sinitml froml the i}t atl at. largo, arnd one tiari nn rict inl the .tat'l,; anll In ease any ticket shiall llontai ntwo or or names olf p.trsons r.sidiltng in tlhe uanllll disRlrit (i'vx'opt, tllhe 1w , ho- .rn frol tin lhmati ut i trg'.), tti, first of si.,'h iamsiri' inlv If an elebtor, made Ineligible by the law of Louislana, is considered as not duly voted for, a fortiori, all eloctcrs made ineligible by an absoluto prothibi tion of the constitutlon of the United States must ble considered as not voted for. Then the Republicans, In the eye of the law, had but six electors in the field, and but six wore chosen by the people. On the 61th of 1)ecnmber the Ieopubll can Electoral College met, with but six constitutional electors; they could cast but six votes; Loulashna Is entitled to eight; the college Is incomplerte; how could it lie cofmpleted ? IL ,t us now refer to the Statutes of the United States, volume 5, page 721. I quote from the act of 1145: ITh'ni i.l or , of itl l l'roei .ntl , ' i nd Vin w 'uri ,i.i door sh.lhi l tun a.pqinte h in wi' M InIn n the Inl'u d v i n'xt l!r rt the first Mondiay in tlle In th ol Novonaii r of i us a iin11 wiichiv thi or s t w nppoit.I ; i'rln,ird.

This law, it is clhear, ful ly protivde for vacancies which might have occurredi an between the election (Nov. 7, 1576), when the electoral college was created by the votes of the people, and the sixth of December, when the co.llage m et to cast its vote, and comes fully ortlln the forst prviso of the vent of Cof a ngress; l-ut does it touch the difficulty in law question ? Does it prbooksvide a way for mpleting an electoral colleg whereovso o the people havet 'rot cho,.en electors ? Its words are,; "f f any e or mteor of the lcc atrs hn irreut a the people" etc. * * 'Then we must look further in to e law of thouie State for our remey on; but, unfortunately for the hopes of this inompleto Electoral College, our lawmakers seem never to have contemplated the event of a fail ure to make a choice upon the part of the people, and there istn r i non the statute books of Louan elecana tonal tel under the second proviso of the act of Congress. It may lbe stated then. as an irrefuta ble fact, that in the State of Louisiana, if, at an election for presidential elec tors, the people fail to choose electors or an elector, then there 1: no law by which an electoral col lege may be created or an incom dolete electoral college completed. The Republican electoral college was composed of but six members on the sixth lay of Decembor, andl there was no law, national or State, under which it could be completed. Out Washington correspondent (to votes more of his letter to showing how deograted a creature John Sherman is, than the importance of the subject here requires. This com munity, some time since, made up their opinion of the United States Senator who came hero as the aider, abettor and accomplice of forgers and perjurers. Our correspondent suggests that Sherman has not resented the charges he has preferred against him, because he (Sherman) thinks he has a senatorial dignity to sustain. Probably our correspondent is correct, John Sherman has a senatorial dignity, or something else, to sustain which seems to prevent him from sustaining the dig nity and character of an honest man and a gentleman. Some ourious compiler of statistics and geneal ogies has discovered that eighty-nine descend ants o' the Huguenots banished from France by tbo revoeation of the Edict of Nantes returned to that country in 1870 as officers in the German army.
