The I'Lcayune has been seized with a sudden and severe attack of morality, and howls for the suppression of the gamblers and gambling saloons by the police. We wish that we could believe the pious old fraud of Camp street is prompted in its feeble crusade by a sincere desire to correct a great evil and a oeurageous purpose to perform a pub lie duty. But we cannot do so. Every good citizen must desire the discovery and adoption of some plan or policy which can utterly break up gambling saloons and prevent men from Indulg lag in the violous and dangerous pas. time of gambling. But the evil cannot be eradicated or even abated by spas modic outcries against "the sports," nor by occasional raids of the police upon their dens, The passion for gambling is deeply seated in our natures, and it can only be repressed or regulated by a healthy public opinion which severely condemns Its excesses and punishes its licentious exhibitions. Those who feel a sincere desire to abate this very great and grow lng vice, if they have any knowledge of human nature, or any acquaintance with the history of the efforts to repress the evil, will not base any very sanguine hope of success on a demand for its sudden and violent extermination. We believe that the police should, as ar as practicable, en force the law against gambling; indeed, whenever they fall to do so they are unfaithful to their duty. But any raid they may make now or in future will do very little toward repress ing the gambling houses of Now Or leans unless the Legislature or the courts of Louisiana shall annul the charter of that iniquitous preparatory school for the faro banks, the Louisiana Lottery Company. No one has a live lier sense of the debasing influence of gambling than we have; but we know at the same time that the Louisiana Lot. tery is an infinitely greater curse to this community than all the taro banks, keno shops and bunko dens that exist in this city. The gambling saloons are at least con cealed from public view; they can only be found when those who desire to gam ble seek them out; their keepers can not advertise them over whole pages of leading newspapers, nor can they own or influence public journals. The law denounces the faro dealer as a criminal and he is forced to retire from the pub lie gaze to ply his tradq. The law may not be able to utterly destroy or sup press him, but it keeps him in some sort of subjection and affords the youth and the women of the community protection against his cunning and his art. Not so, however, with the lottery. It too is a gambling scheme pure and sim ple; the men who run the lotteky are in every sense of the word as much gam blers as the faro dealers; the managers of the lottery make their money by the same means and through the existence of the same passion that the keeper of the roulette table does. The single dif ference between the lottery dealer, the iaro dealer and the roulette player is that they play different games, and the lottery dealer plays the most wicked, debasing, fascinating and ruinous game of the whole fraternity of gamblers. Yet, through a corrupt Legislature the lottery dealer obtained the sanction and protection of the law for his game, and he opens his tables, his dens, his schemes atevery corner; he establishes his cen tersof operations in every village of the State, on every streetof the city, and ad. vertises his schemes in the public jour nals; he tempts the boy; he encour ages the youth; he teaches the women and even decoys ministers of the gospel to gamble with him. Will any intelli gent citizen of New Orleans deny these tacta, and can any conscientious man deny that an institution which leads and educates men, women and children to gamble, and tempts servants at every oorner to steal money for a stake, is a far more dangerous, degrading and ini quitous gambling scheme than the faro bank or the i'oulette table ? And yet, when was the voice of the virtuous Picayune raised against this great, this shameful, this iniquitous curse of the community. Nay, when has the Picayune been free of its power and independent of its influence ? That pretentious sheet calls for'the extirpa L-on of the "gambling hells" of New Orleans; it taunts the police with their negleet to pursue and hunt down the lgamblers; it threatens to convulse so l.ety with the thunders of its wrath at iaro, keono and roulette; it eagle eye has even penetrated some of the dens of Iniquity, and it directs the police where to find them. Wonderful and startling display of virtue I But is this transport of righteousness, this ex tatic virtue sincere ? Alas I we fear not. The old PYi0 is only blowing; It grits its snaggy teeth; slams its fist down on the editorial table, and shrieks for the scalps of the gamblers, and when the old ladies and the ncle plous young men are overcome with admiration the old fraud snickers in its sleeve and begins to cogitate as to what Will be the next best dodge to catch a little popular favor. We have no objection to the I'b'. Lunue'n war on the gamblers. We hope it will succeed; but if that journal is sincere, if its courage is not of the Fal staffan order, if it will dare provoke the ire of the Louisiana Lottery Company, let it join the UDMO.nAT in a vigor ous effort to destroy the great pre paratory school of the gambling hells, demanding of the Legislature an nat to repeal the charter of the Lottery Company whlih was procured by brib ery and corruption. If the Picayune and t.nes will engage in this good obtrk with the DaMOrnAT the days of the Lot tery Company will be numbered, and an institution which is the shame of our civilization and the curse of our State will be swept out of existence. Until the c'airyune joins us in this fight no man of sense will believe that its anti-gambling crusade is aught but a catch penny piece of business, MR. RANDALL ON TiE SUBSIDIES. It seems to be a very difficult matter to arrive at the true position of Mr. Randall on the question of the subsl dies asked for by the South. We see no complioations or subtleties in this very plain proposition to justify the ap parent nebulosity of Mr. Randall's con victions in regard to it; and in all this mystery, which he appears to have no intention of dispelling, there is a sus picious eagerness to secure the Speak ership by indirect and disingenuous concealments which are not calculated to commend him to the Southern Dem ocrats, without whose. support he cer tainly cannot attain the eminence he has fixed his hopes on. The question is such a simple one as to necessarily sub jeot the man of Mr. Randall's emi nence who has not open and pro nounced views upon it, to grave charges of trimming and in sincerity for purposes of personal aggrandizement. If this is Mr. Ran dall's idea he may as well abandon it at once, and we are only astonished that so shrewd a pliticlian as he is accounted should have failed to realize that the day of politic reticence and double dealing has parted by, at least for a season, in American politics. If he ex pects to come the "slippery Sam" over the Southern Democracy he will find himself a most contemptible failure, with scarce vestige enough of reputa tion left to preserve his self-respect. We would dislike to premise such things of him, but he will certainly go to Wash ington to enter the canvass for the Speakership under just these imputa tions if he fails to come out before the meeting of Congress in an open, manly and perfectly ingenuous declaration of his views upon these subsidies. This is a question in which the lwhole country is deeply interested, and about which the people of all sections are profoundly excited, and it is the merest folly for any man who hopes for preferment at the hands of the next Congress to at tempt any concealments or insinceri ties with regard to it. Mr. Randall, then, may as well come out at once and let the world know exactly what he thinks and precisely what he will do, or he had best abandon his ambitions for once and all. What the South will ask she does not yet know herself, but we are disposed to believe it will not be as much as the people of the North seem to apprehend; but one thing is certain, and that is that no man not fully committed to the pro tection and development of the interests of the great valley of the Mississippi, which affect the West not less than the South, can ever secure our support for anything. As for ourselves, we are wedded to no favorite, certainly to none from among the Southern members, and while we may prefer Mr. Milton Saylor, we would readily yield him for any other man from his or any other section of similar convictions and sympathies. We are certainly prompted by no per sonal preferences or prejudices in at tracting attention to Mr. Randall's sus picious silence, and the diverse reasons given by various papers in different sec tions of the country for urging his claims. The St. Louis Republican writes him down on "both sides" of the question, because the Richmond Dispatch sup ports him for favoring the "Pacific Railroad, Mississippi levees, and any other good thing desirable to the South west," while the New York Sun sup ports him for being opposed to them. The Republican also refers to an inter view with Mr. Randall at his home near Philadelphia, reported to the Southern people through the Galveston . News, in which he is represented as an earnest supporter of these measures. It also cites the following from the Memphis Appeal: "With Sam Randall in the chair as Speaker, all neededl legislation for the South is sure of speedy action." The Syracuse Courier, in calling at tention to these discrepancies, surmises that either the Sun, or the Necws, Dis patch and Appeal must be wrong, and says: "It is now in order for the Sun to revise its list of reasons, why r. -Rndall .Sould a ala bs Hpmiaker, Wc are curVous to rene tnh re vised dlithon.

This thing will not begin to do, and we are astonished fhat it should be attempted by such an astute polI tician, that Is if it has been in accord ance with a preconceived policy, and there Is but one way for Mr. Randall to avoid such a presumption, and that is by a very outspoken candor between now and the meeting of the extra session. There is one provision of the (icorgla constitution, that relating to the law of divorce, which must he commended for its pleasing contrast to statutes of this State and several others farther North, where the matrimonial noose Is tied as loosely and undone as easily as a lady's shoe-string. There was a strong feeling in the convention against allow. ing divorces at all, except for Infidelity, but this rigid sentiment finally yielded to the provision flnally adopted, which permits divorces only after they have been granted by iwo decrees obtained from separate jurtles, at successive terms of court. These difficult provis ions will greatly discourage divorces for trivial causes, and afford the parties an opportunity to become reconciled to each other, as well ls invest the obliga tion of the marriage vow with a sanc tity It has in a great measure lost in this age of loose ideas on all social questions. It is very similar to the law in this State as it existed prior to the enactment of the Radical Legislature which was engineered through by John Ray, and which gave an immense stim ulus to the divorce business in this State, but which was repealed at the last session by our Democratic Assom bly, which revived the old law.
