Our subscribers will confer a favor qpon us by reporting at this office every lltlure In the delivery to their address fo the DiMOCRAT, as we are particularly dlsirous of achieving absolute exacti tude and punctuality. In our news columns we publish a dis patch to the Chicago ittnes, stating that a member of Hayes' Cabinet was credited with the theory that all the trouble in Louisiana comes from the fact that a portion of the people of the State are of the Latin race, and therefore not in ' sympathy with the political methods fwd ideas of the rest of the American people. The Timuu', commenting edi torially on the absurd hypothesis, says: With all due deference to the member of the Oablnet the T'ismes begs to stg get that the Latin race has nothing to do with the matter. It isn't a lae question et all. It's thieves. Durell wasn't a Latin race, so far as beard from. Neither was Kellogg nor Wells. And Packard's Latinity isn't half so deserving of hanging as his rascality. When the carpet-i)ag brigands are eradicated the Latin race will not trouble Louisiana. In its article yesterday morning, be wailing its failure to secure the public printing, the I'ica.oite says: The I)IMOCRAT avers that "the Leglslature paever intended that the uubltl prinnUtu ýhould ge ýawardid to the lo.i.,slt bidder.' aundl It I very p.wslble that the DEMtwRAT spDeak by the a nr: b ut it is true that other jou-natn wore invited to tamtt tproP:its, and thie Inferenee is that the D5rt.RAlT was underbidden. The Printing bill under which the DlmoorAT was awarded the printing does not provide for bids. The bill fixes the rates of different classes of print lag, and directs the Board to contract with a responsible party at rates not higher than those mentioned. The members of the Board satisfied them selves by inquiry that the prices in the bill were just and fair; that they insured 4Q.ly a moderate profit. The Board invited no bids under the bill; S one were made, and the Deu ocRT was not underbidden. The lhuocasT was awarded the con tract because the Board, knowing the fates to be fair, believed that the DEMO eRAT deserved the contract. For weeks past the country has been in a state of apprehension and uncer tainty. No one, not even those highest a In position, know positively anything of the future. The situation teems with conjecture, but there seems to be not one certainty in it. The President and his Cabinet evidently have no fixed pur pose, and yet every member of Congress, every newspaper and every politician in the U-on --is-trying to work out the problem that is involved in this curious and extraordinary situation. The people are told that a written agreement exists under which Southern representatives permitted the count under the electoral bill to go on, and by which Mr. Hayes and his friends were bound on his inauguration to withdraw the Federal troops from the support of Chamberlain and Packard. A remarka ble mystery has surrounded this agree ment. No one connected with it feels .uthorized to make it public, and yet it is a matter in which every man, woman and child in the Union is deeply con serned. Mr. Charles Foster and Mr. John Young Brown have made state ments in relation to that agreement, i .d some vague and indefinite letters have been printed purporting to be the substance of the contract. It is pretty certain, however, that what hat' been to the public was only prolimi ' rto the final agreement. T This agreement should be made pub Solie, without further delay. Its publica gO. will quiet, in a measure, the country, and show to what extent Mr. Hayes pledged himself to a policy of amtiac to Louisiana and South Caro i n, and to what extent he has violated ledge or the pledges of his repre y frbydelS.. We have no idea iso anytri dlgboearle in ' ad iial. pblcs The Pioayutte has not yet roovereod from the blow it received in its failure to secure the State printing. Three days have elapsed since the contract for that work was awarded to another pa per, and we have given it a severe but just castigation for its violent temper and impertinence; and yet it continues to scold, and fume, and fuss like a virago. It has evidently, since the opening of the canvass to the present time, been possessed with the idea that the whole policy of reform con sisted in the i'icaluflc obtaining the State printing. It has failed to get that printing; there were not a dozen members of both branches of the Legislature who desired that it should get it, and in a printing board composed of the Governor, the Lieutenant Governor, the Speaker of the House, two Senators and two Itep resentatives, it did not receive a single vote. This being the case, the cause of reform, in the opinion of that great and disinterested journal, is a dead failure. The cause for which we have all strug gled for eight years is lost; the inter ests of eight hundred thousand people; the cause of civilisation and Christianity, have all been sacrificed, foully betrayed, according to the )'lcaiynne, in the defeat of its proprietors for the office of State Printer. This is sad from the Pl'canoie's stand point, but we do not see how it is to be remedied. We fear the P'icayune must stand it, and we promise it that the people will be able to do so. The distressing part of the business is the bad temper, bad breeding and weak intelligence our contemporary has ex hibited over its defeat. In a column and a half of the most pitiful spiteful ness and imbecility it has ever been our lot to poeruse in a respectable journal, the I'i+r'arune, forgetting all sense of propriety or decency, yesterday morn ing essayed to represent to the public that the DEMOCHAT was "a perishing enterprise, an "unsuccessful newspa per." "Thle DEtuoCrAT, however," saidt the I'ieayune, with an indecent dis regard of common courtesy, and a grossly immoral disregard of the truth, "is a monumental refutation of the proverb, 'Nothing succeeds like suc cess,' for its very failure was the occasion of its reward. 'Give it to the DEMOCRAT; it can't live without it, and we must have an organ.'" After other observations of a similar character, it is alleged by the I'icayune that the DEMOCnAT has no circulation, and that the laws might as well be pub lished in Choctaw or Coptic as in its columns supported by the bounty of a State Board of Printing, There is very little to be said In re sponse to this sort of insolence, and we shall not waste much time on it. The assertions of the Picayune in relation to the DEMOCRAT are simply wild and Irre sponsible statements. It knows nothing of our business nor of our circula tion, and therefore, in both in stances, it has spoken an un truth. It uttered an untruth when it charged that the DEMOCRAT was a famishing enterprise, an unsuccessful newspaper, and dependent upon the bounty of a State Board of Printing; and it uttered an untruth when it attempted to underrate the circulation of the DEMOCRAT. Upon what authori ty, indeed, does the Picayune so imper tinently venture to discuss our private business affairs in its columns ? It has not been the custom heretofore among gentlemen in their controversies to drag such subjects into their discussions. Up starts, vulgarians, with more money than brains or manners, resort to this rude and silly method of argument, and it only serves to make , them ridiculous and contemptible. To the public we will say that the pub lication of the DEMOCRAT did not depend upon its receiving the State printing. If the Board, in the exercise of its judgment, had given the contract to another paper, the publication of the DEMOCRAT would have continued, for, so far from being a famishing journal, it had reached that stage in the for tunes of a ygung and vigorous jour nal at which, without being profitable to its proprietors, it was self-sustain ing. As to its circulation, perhaps no persons in the State knew better than several members of the Printing Board, who canvassed the State in the last campaign, that the New Orleans DE-vocaT circulates in every parish, and that in several large sec tions of Louisiana it is the only New Orleans paper that circulates at all. The Picayune, having exhausted its genius for attack and invective by charg ing that the DEMOCRAT was a famishing enterprise and without circulation, turns to a pathetic and extraordinary defense of itself against the crushing indictment we preferred against it Ihursday morning. It affirms that it is an old paper; it concedes that it has been, in times past, guilty of bad practices, but offers to reform, and, finally, indignantly denies that Mr. Howard has any claims to its proprie It is a matter of little concern to us whether Mr. Howard has any claim on the Picayune or not. The point we made was, that the title of the paper was in litigation, and that it was impos sible for any one to predict in whose favor the judgment of the court would be rendered. The suit is a matter of public notoriety; it has been discussed in the newspapers, and the complica tions in the Picayune's affairs which gave rise to it really originated in the controversies, quarrels and combina tions of men, good and bad, who have attempted to swaythisState. It would, tin our opinion, have been quite impru ln the prt of the Pintitan Berd I institutiont ths situiated and with ao Soertsin ownership. The l'Icrllne has been so long ad dioted to flopping and to the other bad practices to which we referred Thurs day,.that the public are justifiable in not being over trustful of its promises to reform. It tells us it hras grown old; p indeed, that it is In lts fortieth 6 year. That is very old for a newspaper, we admit. ulit, after all, old age cannot make vice, gar rulous imbecility, bad manners and bad temper respectable, nor can youth and vigor detract from the considera tion and respect which are due to honor and patriotism. The I'icutmuoe Is old, it is true, but It, seems to have had in crease neither of wisdom nor virtue. Indeed, from its recent conduct, it seems that its vices, its garrulousness and,bad temper have waxed in violence and sapped its vigor as it has advanced in years. The i'inra!rn', In this discussion, has boasted loudly of the valiant work it did in the last and previous canvasses; and yet, before the smoke of the battle has rolled away, nay, before the fight has been completely won, we find it quarreling and growling river the spoils. It reminds us of Thenard the camp-follower, in " Len Miserables," who hung on the roar of the army to plunder the battle fields, and, when the war was over set up an inn, which he dubbed the Inn of the Hero of Water loo, where he boasted to his credu lolls customers of the valiant deeds he had done on stricken fieolds. C(ONFI,'('TL.1 TIIEI)IlIiE OF lOtVERN. MEN r. We hope that, pending the arrival in this city of Mr. Hlayes' I1gh Commis. lioners, we shall not hear any more of the senseless talk which has heretofore been indulged in by thou htless people about a "Returning Bo 4rut quorum" of the Legslelature. Such talk is simply nonsensical, having no foundation either in reason or in law. We can un derstand that the leaders of the Radical party In this State should continually harp upon the findings of the Return ing Board ; their object is to mislead the people of the country into the belief that that body possesses unlimited jurisdiction in the matter of counting the votes and declaring the result or all general elections, and in this aim they have certainly succeeded to a great ex tent. During the sixteen years In which the Radical party has hold sway over the Union there has been witnessed such a perversion of the letter and spirit of ' constitutions and laws, that the funda. mental principles of Republican rep resentative government have almost been lost sight of; at any rate, they are practically ignored to such an extent that the public mind of the North receives, without that shock which would have been oc casioned by the mere suggestion at the time when Democratic teachings and doctrines prevailed, the unrepubilcan Idea that the organization of the Legis lature of a sovereign State may be con trolled by a board of canvassing officers who are the mere creatures of a pre vious Legislature. The people of the Southern States have a much clearer conception of the true character of re publican institutions, and of the real sources and nature of the powers vested in legislative bodies, and of the powers which these may confer upon public officers, than the Northern people. The bitter experience of the last twelve years, the constant shameless violation of what instinct and a natural sense of right and justice led, them to consider as the Inalienable privileges of free men, has driven them to a careful study of the Federal constitution and of the constitutions of their respective States, to which they felt they must cling as the only anchor of safety within their reach. Circumstances have given them a clearer knowledge of the theory and practice of constitutional government than is possessed by the people of any other part of the Union. The most superficial observer would be impressed by this fact from a mere casual perusal of the political journals of the North and South. Ho would notice at once to what an extent the teachings of the early apostles of Radicalism, like Sumner, and Greeley, and Seward, the founders of the "high er-law" party, have bred in the North a contempt for the forms of the Federal constitution-without a strict observ ance of which the National Republic cannot possibly exist in its integrity and a persistent disregard of the re straints and limitations imposed by that constitution upon the exercise of Federal jurisdiction over State affairs. The great majority of the people of that part of the country, even of the most intelligent classes, are controlled in their views and discussions of politi cal questions, not by the law governing I any particular case, but by sentiment, that is to say, by their individual no tions of what the law ought to be. In deed, it is a common remark among them that the war abolished the consti tution and made of the Federal Union 1 a nation every portion of which is sub ject to the almost unlimited jurisdiction and control of the central government. STh3 people of the South, on the con trary, abhor and reject every principle Sof government which tends to the con tralization of power in the hands of the Federal authorities. They regard the - written constitutions of the Union and 1 the several States as the source of all • governmental power. In this they fol - low in the footsteps and obey the teach . ings of the founders of the American R1 epublic, who knew full well that the - Union of the States ,ooald not be ma.t 1 ania.i without premrvIm ta m they know that in the atrioot ber oa. of the limitations of the Federal con stitution lieu their only hope of escaping molestation and oppression on the part of the dominant seotion of the country, incited do hostility.and prejudice against them by the bitter memories of the late war. This being the case, and more partic ularly in Louisiana than in any other State, we are naturally surprised that any Louselanian with the least claim to intelligence should be guilty, in dis cussing the composition of our Legisla ture, of so gross a solecism as to speak of a "Returning Board quorum." Under the constitution of the State the RIe turning Board has no more jurisdiction or control over the Legislaturqthan has the Emperor of China. EaRch house of the Legislature is the solo judge of the qualilloations, returns and election of its members: the Legislature conslets of the persons actually elected to the two branches thereof, and a "constitu tional quorum" consists of a majority of the members so elected. The I'icnalune tells us and the public, in a column and a half editorial, that it has abandoned the wilkedness of its formter ways, and the wind blowing toward reform, it has reformed. That is just what oe said, wherever the wind will blow, thlere will the I'icavune go. That is what may be called a straw paper which Is very useful in its way. As a weathercock the I'icayul is cer tainly a success. I~ nllfIOkIAIlt. IN tviKjIOIAlII. Ilesroaliosi on Ihe I)eath ofr hlary (e.na I|( OrAN1 C(oor,uAVal Ni, 4:.
