TNIE LGIdNLATUltE Faybl 111-- AOVKII.O. We published on Wednesday morning an analysis of the Legislature, showing Its political complexion according to the true returns of the votes actually east in November last, and the present composition of the legal Legislature of the tate, sitting at Odd FeI)lows' Hall. We gave also as an illustration of the Ingenuity with which the scoundrels composing the Returning Board falsiy the results of our elections, the consrd ti tution of what many people have fallen Into the abit of calling the "votes turn ing Board Legislature," though, to our mind, the use of that term, except by way of pleasantry, is sufficient to jus D they e launching of a wrst de unatieo inquralso a against the per lon using it. We might as well speak of a "Ootton Exchange Legislature," or a " Penitentiary Legis latre," as of a " Rteturning Board Leg uulature," since that body has no more jurisdiction in the matter of counting the votes for members of the Legislature than have the two former institutions, and much less control over legislators than the latter of these two ought to have over some of those in hiding at the $t. Louis Hotel. It is most reWarkable and mortifying to find men who are pre sutmed to have some intelligence, since they occupy public positions, advertis lg and proclaiming their dense ignors anpe of the real nature and Eonstitu tional turbwers and prerogatives of legis lative bodes,ince that body rephas no moresent tive form of government, by employing language which implies the admission by them that a boardthe matter of canvassing officers, the mvotre creature of the Legislature, cathn usurp the functions of its creator . and control for all time to come the legislation of the tate. I these peo-t t ple, instead of venting their ignorance, would take the e trouble to turn to their -own written constitution, they would tAnd that each house of the Legislature um to have sole and exclusive judge of the election of its members and that no body else has anything to do with the eatter. This point being settled in their mK inds, they might, probably, without tmuch trouble, be made to understand that a Legislature composed of a mon jority of the persons elected to both boranches thereof isprer as good and legal Legislature as it is possible to create in a State,sinee such a body oannot,under the .onstftution of any country There the lorm and substance of republican and pro sentative government prevail, doyel tm to any board of canvassing officers constitutional duty and power to dreat Sand control its owe organizome th ould Then, perhaps, we should hear i own written constitutiotn, talkhey waboult led that each house of the Legislatures "-a Satter. This point being confuse the publi minds, they mning carpet-robaggeblyrs, wtho Slaugh in trouble, be made to understand e ht thoa Legislature composed of a mrping .*pn oit, the persons electlied nto usinboth 1adoptge thereofit as goodthe equivalent of the iLegislature as it s possif the t reate. It in as sttesid before, reall body mannotunder thfine eetcitutlion of any country a herom thmoe gtathve govternment prevailation of the lon rtes, to theany board of a band of lers o th constitutional duty an they do fower to de dealgue. But enoughlts own othanizt. The an, perhaps, we should heardne Returningday shows that therd Legislature si- :tm invtwenty-three Senators, withe public Sind by nator Allainrpetbger, who took Satb Wedn their sleeves trnoon, andthe seveimplinty -aix edoptreseng it as the equtatives-all elected onf the Sfacegsltre of the returns otes It e, as Ine Representatives are Republicans. $bus it is clearly seen that this Legis ture, so far from being in need of a . 3.organization, is already as legal and prfect as it can be made. and that the SOly strength which could be added to tIs that of numbers. To obtain such th no reorgankation is neces All that is required is that absent members appear and take seats. Why, thee, should there talk about reorganising the with all the enormous a iwhisr sao a ofeot can be attained by the slhple pro oees of admitting to their seats the now recusant members, whose absence from the Legislature during the last three months, it may truthfully be said, has been of far more advantage to the in terests of reform than their presence could have been. The Commission sent here by Mr. Hayes is composed of inteUllgent law yers and statesmen. A stay here of twenty-fbur hours will suffice to make clear to them the utter absurdity and futility of any such scheme as a reor ganization of the Legislature. Their mental caliber must be small, indeed, if they cannot realize at a glance the legality and constitutional completeness of our Legislature and their own want of authority to question it in any way. They come simply on a tour of investiga tion and have no more idea of attempt ing to effect a reorganization of our Legislature than they have of recom mending the recognition of Packard as n(nvnrnnr. THIS MENATOLSHIP. The propriety of an early adjourn ment of the Legislature, and the elec tion of a Senator, are now being active ly discussed both by the members of the Legislature and their constituen cies-the people. We are content to leave the question of adjournment to the discretion of our representa tives; but the rumors abroad, that there is a disposition on the part of some of the senators and representa tives to elect a Radical to the United States Senate, demands serious con sideration. The people throughout the State have very clearly expressed their opposition to any such action, and we do not hesi tate to say that the democratic senator or representative who should vote for any man, for the United States Senate, who is not in full political accord with the principles upon which the last can vass in this State was fought and won, would betray the trust confided to his hands by the people who elected him. The President asks no degrading price for the justice he has promised to, accord us, and deep have we sunk in cowardice and degradation, if we are prepared to confer one of the highest honors Louisiana can bestow, upon any' one of the creatures who have been, in the last eight years, identified with the rule which has been our ruin and our disgrace, or upon any one who at all times, and under all circumstances, has not been in direct and pronounced opposition to that rule. Mr. Hayes has not asked us to de. grade ourselves by perpetrating a bald fraud upon our State and upon the United States Senate. But, if there are any members of the Louisiana Legisla ture (and, thank Heaven, we do not be lieve there are any such,) who are so craven in spirit that they are ready to elect a Senator at the dictation of the President, we would say to them that they can best subserve the wishes of that official by electing a straight out Democrat. If Mr. Hayes in truth means to carry out his Southern polioy, he must prefer, to the election to the United States SBen ate, from this and other Southern States, of Radicals, the election of honor able Democrats. It is the interest of Southern Democrats - especially Louisiana Democrats-to sustain the President in his Southern policy, while on the other hand, it is to the interest of every Radical in the South to defeat that policy. There is no Radical in Louisiana wvho could give President Hayes any iafluenoq or support if elect ed to the Senate, and there is not a straight-out Democrat who has been mentioned in connection with this high office who would not be a tower of strength to him there, so long as he proved true to his pledges to protect and rehabilitate the South. Are Louisianians more craven in spirit; are they fonder of degradation than the South Carolinians? Have we become in the last eight years constitu tional dirt-eaters, that we talk of elect ing to the highest places in our gift some one of the wretches who fpr years have tramped us in the dust and rifled our pockets ? We trust not. But if we have, men who respect themselves had better begin to make their arrange ments to leave the State. Gov. Hampton emancipated South Carolina by his firm and uncompro mising attitude. He refused to defile his soul by having any political associa tions with any of the thieves and rap scallions who have scourged his people. We have no idea that the Legislature will for a moment entertain the thought of making a Louisiana Radical a United States Senator. We know that the Democracy of the State have not elected to the Legislature a set of men who would give such an indorsement to the past eight years of misrule and plunder, and such a refutation of all the charges we have made against the Kelloggs the Packards and their kind. Yet rumors to this effect are abroad and we have thought it proper to set the Legislature right before the public. IUPPLY AND) DBlAND. We make this extract from an obit uary notice in the Iberville ~Souih: A notableold colored woman died on the Cle mtnts plantation, in this pariebsh, on Bunday last. Her name was Nelly Parker. Hho warn born at Mount Vernon, and at hlr death was about 85 years old. 8he -was the lanidr as of the late Mlrs. E. G. W. Buter. Nolly'i mother was the laun ress or irs. Btutler's mother, Mre. Lewis of Wuodlawn, and her grandm ther was laundress of Mrs. Wubington of Mount Vernon. Nelly was the larst of the "old Washington stock" in this pariah, and 1.ke all the servan a of that illustrious famtly, prided herself upon her deseet. Political economists tell us that ade mad for an article is generally, per h wps , y w, followed by an itnorease In hEr event 11atmm .ta thiS d *ro.ng all ktuidi of phbnomena , po1iI oal and social. Some time ago It hap, pended that a man by the name of Johnson was wanted by the police of Boston, or some other Eastern city. In fact there was an active demand for Johnson. Of course it will be at once suggested by the reader who is hasty in jumping at conclusions, that such a de mand could very easily be supplied that the stock of Johnsons in the Uni ted States is large enough to satisfy the requirements of the most clamorous police in the country. But it happened that in this instance the Johnson was to be named Thomas, and that he was to have lost his left eye, in place of which he was to wear a glass orb. Given a left glass eye, and the Christian name of Thomas, as fune tlous of Johnson and the problem would seem to be too hard for the most able-bodied police. Nevertheless the demand produced its natural effect, and notonly one glass-eyed Thomas John son, but, in fact, thirteen of these abnor mal and phenomenal beings were duly forwarded to the Boston thlef of Police, When little Charley Boss disappeared, a vigorous demand for him imme.iately arose, and, In response to it, the supply of Charley Bosses seemed, for a time, to glut the market. All over the country people engaged zealously in the inven tion of Charley Bosses, and the business has *not ceased yet. So, when Tweed disappeared, and there was an active demand for him in New York, Tweeds appeared, almost simultaneously, in different parts of the country. Stout and innocent gentlemen were in conr stant danger of being converted into Tweeds by their enterprising and spec ulative fellow-cljizens. No fat man was safe from sudden arrest and extradi tion; and, in short, the cropor potential Tweeds was something enormous. At one time it was supposed that tie sun, which is the centre of our planetary as em, was a unique and solitary body of its kind. But a demand for suns arose among astronomers, and speedily Birius, and Aldebaran and Arcturus were converted into solar orbs, and as the demand in creased the number was run up to several millions. It is comforting to know that if any accident were to hap pen to our luminary the prudent fore thought of astronomers has provided us with so abundant a supply. So when scientifloc men began to desire asteroids it was found that the four which had originally sufficed to supply a moderate demand were not enough for the times, and, in consequence, about a hundred and sixty of these eccentric bodies have been- brought into the astromonical marlat.k In fact, the Illustrations of the doc trine are, as we have said, conspicuous in every department of human affairs. The obituary notice which we give at the beginning of this article is another confirmation of its truth. Owing to circumstances connected with the his tory of George Washington, there has, for a number of years, been quite a lively demand for domestics belonging to the Washington family. It is well known that the supply has been pretty well kept up. In fact, it must be a very poor neighborhood that cannot produce an aged darkey who blacked Washing ton's boots, or baked the family hoecake. And there is no reason to believe that the capacity for this kind of production has been reached. Indeed, there is no telling how much the wealth of the country might be increased by accumu lating a large stock of this class of per sons. Since the hard times came on, many people have been thrown out of employment, who might apply thqm selves to this branch of industry. The success of Barnum when he undertook to supply the demand for Washington domestics by exhibiting Joyce Heth, is a comforting example of what might be done in this line. A good many posts have not yet been filled. We want Washington's valet, and his coachman, and his cookr-in fact, half a dozen good specimens of each would not overstock the market. Then there is getting to be quite a brisk demand for laundresses, and laundresses' children, which the unfortunate deceased above referred to only partly supplied. Besides these a fine lot of chamber-maids and hair dressers would prove a merchantable article. In short, it would be hard to place a limit to the business, and there is no doubt that if properly conducted it may flourish for another hundred years, so that our posterity, who visit the next Philadelphia Centennial, may gaze with rapture on a lot of lively duo centenarians who waited on Mr. and Mrs. Washington. THIE SOUrHERN APPOINTMENT. The Times, yesterday morning, in an interesting article giving the "real his tory of the appointment of the South ern member of the Cabinet," says, after mentioning several Southern gentlemen who were spoken of for a Cabinet po sition, and giving the reasons of the rejection of some of them: "This," the declination of Gov. John C. Brown, "reduced the list to four men. It was then concluded that as the Mississippi River States would require especial at tention, the man who was to go into the Cabinet should be selected from one of them. This dropped Hancock, of Texas, from the list." The statement of our contemporary does not accord with that of the very intelligent correspondent of the Austin (Texas) State Gazette, who gives the following account of Judge Hancock's connection with this business: The portfolio of Postmasutr General or the UIited state was plac-d at the dipos al of Jdae Hancock. He sought the advis of the Teuas senators and Oo m nd I wa siem4 t.rm lansru, tRw oi set uadat'e 1 outase the diseaseon that enhged, ,nor o sir( the view esarsed by the sgentlome pre.ent, but t will surale for me to may that the deleg tion was dipoed to let Judge Hasooek eterolie his own Judgment, which war in effect to deolls I to advise him s to the course he should purse., When this fact was communicated to Judge Hanoock, the tender of the portfolio was declined, Thus It will be seen that Judge Man cook was not "dropped," but that the portfolio of Postmaster General was offered him, and he declined to accept it. The Western and Northern papers stated also, what our contemporary does not mention, that Gen. Gibson was tendered a place in the Cabinet, but de olined it. TIIE I IADIE$' AUCTION AT I. U.
