THE PRESIDENT'S TITLE. A Northern exchange before us reiterates the statement that Mr. Hayes cannot set Packard aside without im peaching his own title. It is hardly credible that Mr. Hayes will waste his opportunities in vain and idle efforts to anre the defects in his title to the Presidency. The world is too well acquainted with the detects of that title, too familiar with the mass of political fraud in.which it is based, for Mr. Hayes to hope to give it even an air of fairness and lagality. He cannot make one crime rightful and innocent by perpetrating another; he cannot make the perjury and bad faith through which the whole country was defrauded in the matter of the Presidency, right, anal just, and logical, by now using the power of his high office to defraud the people of Louisiana, in the matter of their State government. Mr. Hayes' title is already impeached by the whole country, and it will be condemned by posterity. There is no law, human or divine, that can make it good. The establishment of the Nicholls government cannot damage it, nor the recognition of Packard improve it. Its weakness is in the fact that it exists in violation of the constitution and laws of the country, and the only strength it em acquire will be in such tolerance as, Sty wisdom and conciliation, its posses. Sor can secure, for it from the people. wr. Hayes should, therefore, if he Wrishes to strengthen his title, so shape the policy of his administration that it will secure peace to the country and give every section and State an interest In the success of its measures; and if he hopes to escape the most shameful and humiliating judgment of posterity, he must bestow some blessing upon the country,which impartial history may set against the crime by which he acquired his high place and authority. So far from Mr. Hayes being logically bound to recognize Packard, such a course on his part would be the height of unwladom. If he were to attempt to Justify the course of the rascals who Stole the Presidency by recognizing the lniquittlus pretensions of Packard, he would whiten not a single stain upon , their records, nor add an iota of legality to his $tle, while he would plunge one 1 State ihto bloodshed and ruin, likely sonvulbe the whole country, wreck his administration and cover himslf with i faamy. . W e hvre no idea that Mr. Hayes will I ike any silly effort to validate his i 4le by recognizing Packard. The issue 1 a $10o longer one of title. Nothing the .isidemnt may do can change that. The * ily question is, has Mr. Hayes the sa gacity and honesty to attempt to pacify the country, heal its dissensions, and gtie the South peace and a new career rOt prosperity ? SWe can conscientiously say tlhat we be Shes this is Mr. Hayes'purpose, and that Ae e will carry it out. __;r Major Burke telegraphed yesterday * to a prominent gentleman of national putation, who is thoroughly con t with Louisiana affairs, and ya the very best facilities for in atlon, stating fully the apprehen in the minds of the people as to the t of the Commission, and in reply S irved the following dispatch: WArmHINGTON, March 23. Oi F. A. Burke: I have the best reason to believe ything will come out right, but it is impossible to hurry Hayes. There is lo thought of any attempt to put in Packard, but the exact contrary is the e tled purpose. I believe the best ,tlaoy is to wait. has seriously blundered in IPoderal help. Waily toight. While w had rsgreetted as keenlyas our fellow oftizens generally, the delay in the final dispoaitfon of the little band of insurrectionists which must be inci dent to the visitation of a new commis sion, we have felt no disposition to judge the action of the President in the mat ter very harshly. Subjected for eight weary years to constant deceptions and disappointments, our people have nat urally grown morbidly suspicious of the Federal power; and when the "new Southern policy," which was expected to break upon us like a revelation of peace, was inaugurated by a resolution of the President and Cabinet to send acommis sion here, an apprehension seized the public mind that the Administration had abandoned "the policy," and gone over to Morton, Blaine and Packard, or that the President, taking advantage of pur supposed helplessness and depen dence upon the mercy of the general government, proposed to exact from us degrading and humiliating concessions in considaration of the recognition of Gov. Nicholls. We have participated to but a limited extent in these apprehensions. The legal government of the State, indeed, has appeared to us so firmly rooted, so fully established, organized and recog nized by the masses of the people, that it seemed impossible to overthrow it without provoking a terrible clvil con vulsion, and we could not believe that Mr. Hayes was so deficient in wisdom as to provoke such an issue for the pur pose of maintaining the miserable and disgusting remnant of carpet-baggery which holds its last lodgment in this State. That we have been treated to the ap pointment of a commission to visit New Orleans, instead of a prompt order for the withdrawal of the troops, is certainly to be deplored, since it prolongs a sit uation disastrous to business and indus try. But let us not yet denounce President Ha;es as recreant to the noble sentiments of his inaugural and the pledges of his nearest friends, nor assume that we are to be required by this commission to purchase exemp tion from Federal interference by a de grading and ruinous compromise. The Southern policy which Mr. Hayes has promised the country is a great and wise policy, but it is in direct antago nism to the antecedents, traditions and policies of Mr. Hayes' party, covering a stormy period of seventeen years. It is, in short, a strictly Democratic and constitutional policy. To inaugurate and carry out this policy is an infinitely more difficult task' for Mr. Hayes to accomplish than it would have been to a Demo cratic President. Early in the can vass Senator. Morton uttered a practical political truth when he said that no man was stronger than his party. Occasionally there appear in public affairs men of power and intel lect so great that they become excep tions to this rule. But the average poll tician or statesman is never stronger than his party; it is an extraordi nary event that we have fallen upon an average \statesman whose purposes are better than those of his party. We have much to be thankful in that, and instead of striking at him when, in wrestling with the wicked ele ments of his party, he falters, we should rally to him and strengthen him. We stand by President Hayes yet. The DEMOCRAT was the first paper in the South which came up to the sup port of his policy. We believed at first that he was sincere, and we are entirely confident that he is sincere now. We are opposed to the commission; we re gard it as a violation of that principle of local self-government to which the President has pledged himself: we know that in prolonging the period of uncertainty it is causing our fellow citizens the loss of thousands of -dollars daily. Yet badgered by Blaine, Morton, Sherman and that class of men, the ablest and most powerful leaders of his party, we can realize the tremendous pressure and grave dificul ties under which Mr. Hayes is prosecu ting his Southern policy. The majority of the people of the whole country; those representing great commercial and industrial interests, and even the Conservative Republican leaders, are all backing the prompt enforcement of the Southern policy. But t;ere are Blaine and Morton and Sherman, backed by the fanatical crowds who constituted the army of the bloody shirt, moving heaven and earth to defeat it. Let us, of the South, then be patient with the President; let us uphold and strengthen him, until it is clear that he has succumbed to the bad counsels and influences of the worst men of his party. That he will succumb, we have not the slightest apprehension. We are entirely confident, and our confi dence is based upon reliable informa tion, that Mr. Haye's commission will dispose of Mr. Packard, and that no compromise is expected on the part of the Nicholls government. We are con fident that Mr. Hayes will carry out his pledges to establish in this State and South Carolina local self-government. But in the meantime, let our people stand firmly and unfalteringly upon the grounds they have assumed: That the Nicholls government is the legal government of Louisiana, and that they will sustain it to the last ex tremity, with their fortunes and their lives. That they will enter into no bargain or compromise for the adjustment or satisfaction of any of the pretensions of S. B. Packard and his gang. That we are a free people, with a well organized republican government, and I we deeiifatý *o v ia ; º9 E the 7.gea 4*Q OOE represent us in Oongress. That in carrying out his Southern polioy, and in all other wise and just public measures, we will give the Presi dent a cordial support-holding our selves ready, if he attempts to impose upon us another usurpation, to protect ourselves against the foul wrong, even if it plunges the country into civil war. COU 10N EXCHANfGE. The meeting hold at the Cotton Ex change yesterday at 3:30 p. m. was the largest ever held in this city. The object of the call was to express the sentiments of all the operators and dealers in this great commodity, of all who were connected with a trust and interest of the value of one hundred millions of dollars, in regard to one of the most brazen falsehoods ever dis patched from this city. This was the statement telegraphed by Packard that his miserable fraud of a government was recognized by the representatives of the commercial classes of this city. The answer to this atrocious false hood will be found in the very emphatic resolutions published in another col umn, which were unanimously adopted and ordered to be telegraphed to the President of the United States. There was an earnestness and enthu siasm manifested at this meeting which cannot be fully described in words. The idea that so shameless a falsehood should be sent forth in the presence of a sentiment so unanimous, and with a knowledge so universal that not a sin gle person of any standing or repute in the mercantile classes has any other feeling but that of the profoundest con tempt for the gang of vagabonds and bummers collected at the St. Louis Ho tel and salling themselves the govern ment of Louisiana, gave peculiar force and effect to the deeol . tions of the Exchange. The Chamber of Commerce and the Merchants' Exchange will hold meet ings, and give utterance with like unanimity and vigor to the same senti ments. In addition to these manifestations, a list of the leading merchants of the city, representing many millions of capital and property, was made up in a few hours, subscribing to a telegram to the same effect as the resolutions adopted by the Erchange. The Nrew Orleans D6uoRAT and also the r'wa yuweseem to be ot opinion that the Goneral Asseni bly have performed a most wonder full feat inl the pas-age tf Morgan's Louislana and Texas Itlilrd. ad and Steamship Company bill. It does look a litil,, s.tpendons on paper, and smacki very strongly of a sale of the Mta.e to Mr. Charles Morgan. We presume, however, we had as well g.ve Mr. Mor gan a bill of sale of onrselves, as any other mil lion lre and bond holder. It smel a like a job, but, of course, we cannot say positively. [ lans field Reporter. We would be much indebted to the astute editor of the Mansfield paper if he would point out the section of the bill which "smells of a job." It is the mis sion of the DEMOCRAT to oppose all "jobs," and we believe that the mem bers of the Legislature who managed the bill are incapable of jobbery. We may remark to our snarlish contempo rary that the highest virtue does not seek its constant manifestation in sus picions of the integrity of others. DILD.
