THE VAOANT OTA. It appears from an editorial article in the Picayune, of yesterday, that Judges Rogers, Tissot and Bightor, and Mr. E. Bermudes, as chairman of the examin tng committee of the Supreme Court of Louisiana, have recommended Mr. W. H. Hunt to the President for appoint. ment to the vacant seat on the United States Supreme Court bench. The very bungling manner in which our contem porary refers to Mr. Bermudez in this connection as an appointee of "Chief Justice Manning and his associates," Is calculated to convey the impression that the Chief Justice was in some indefin able way responsible for Mr. Bermu des's action or a party to it. Any such impression would do Judge Manning, we are sure, great injustice. In the first place Mr. Bermudes was not appointed chairman of the examining committee of the Supreme Court by "Chief Justice Manning and his associates;" he was the appointee of the late court. But even if Mr. Bermudes were the appointee of the present court neither the Chief Justice nor his associates could pos sibly have any responsibility for his ac tion in this matter. In the general criticism, passed by the Pieayune on the course of the pub lic functionaries who have in their offi cial characters recommended Mr. Hunt for this high office, we cordially con our. All of these gentlemen owe their positions to the Democratic party and they must know, as well as we do, that Mr. W. H. Hunt is not only not a representative of our people, but that he is more repugnant to them than any other man in the Republican party. He has pursued the same end that Pack ard, Kellogg, Wells and Anderson pur sued, and he gave to their wicked schemes what no other man of the party could give, the prestige of his high social position, his almost historic name and his very large abilities. He was indeed the Moloch, if not the Lucifer, of that Stygian council in which the Mammons, the Belials and the Beelzebubs of Radicalism debated and organized their war upon the best inter ests and most sacred rights of Louisi ana. fl.nº "1... ..Ls.ousel... 1.. M..* tr....4 l.. AU But the objection to Mr. Hunt is not only that he has been, or is now, a . Louisiana Radical. There are graver ee offenses resting upon his head, which f we wish our legal friends who recom is mended him had called to mind before m they gave him the high indorsement of ir their official signatures. There is now *. standing against the tax payers of ) Louisiana, as part of the funded debt, nearly a million dollars of console for . which the State of Louisiana never re c. ceived one cent of benefit. o These console represent the bonds j. which were unconstitutionally and p fraudulently issued to the North Loui ie ans and Texas Railroad Company. Part of these bonds were issued by Warmoth when he was in the wildest era of his it reign of corruption, plunder and de. r- bauchery. Toward the close of his Ad ministration he even refused to eisue the residue of the bonds. When Kellogg a entered upon his term, Ludeling and his associates demanded the balance of the r- plunder. Kellogg hesitated and asked . the opinion of Mr. Hunt, who was, at n the time, acting as Assistant Attorney h General, and Mr. Hunt advised him e that he was compelled under the law to o sign and deliver the bonds. n This is an imperfect history of the . transaction, but it gives a correct idea of its nature. Kellogg immediately oem ,e plied, and that debt stands against the 1, impoverished and plundered taxpayers e of Louisiana now. We dely any living man to show that the State ever derived one cent of benefit for the bonds Mr. e Hdnt stiffened up Kellogg's backbone k to sign and deliver, and we defy any living man to prove that the whole p. transaction from the appropriation to i- the final delivery of the bonds was not . a flagrant fraud. l1 We have no right and no desire to i- arraign Judges Rogers, Tissot and a Rightor and Mr. Bermudez for signing n Mr. Hunt's petition or recommendation, i- as private gentlemen; that is their y privilege, and neither we nor others have any right to question or criticise it; but we concur, with the Picayune, in k the opinion that they had no right e to give to his recommendation the e weight of their judicial signatures. e They owe their positions to the final d triumph of that spirit of reform, which e for nearly a decade had wrestled with B the iniquities, and with the bayo T nets which upheld the iniquities, t of the party of which Mr. Hunt was perhaps the ablest leader, and - they had no right to use the p influence of their positions to aid in t placing him, as a representative of Lou. V isiana and the South, in a position of I honor and trust far beyond his original s aspirations. , If the President should appoint Mr. i Hunt to the Supreme Bench, we do not hesitate to say, that he will go very far . toward exterminating what of the t kindly feeling for him in this State the appointments of Wells and Ander son has left. Indeed, he might realize something of the displeasure Mr. Hunt's appointment would create in Louisiana if he knew that even the I Picayune, which has never yet had the spirit or temper to denounce any one, = and which has been the warm eulogist even of the odious Billings, grows in dignant at the rumor of this appoint ment and actually verges upon a de nunclation of those of our judiciary who recommended it. Matils, the SouthOsarolisanegro Orn die wiht. ha i! .~s tai~ fr &a- a who ran the teamer Puanter out of Charleston and delivered her to the blookadinag squadron outside the bar. Well, he is about to be taken care of at the expense of the State, and who shall say then that "republics are ungrate lfatl." MATTHEWS AND SHERMAN. There has never been any very cordial or friendly feeling between the two Ad ministration chieftains in Ohio, Stanley r Matthews and John Sherman. What i then must be the state of the relations of these two conspirators and plotters of the Louisiana fraud. since the Water loo result of the-election in their State ? Matthews, who was actively engaged in the canvass, discovered at the very be ginning that the Louisiana fraud was I an awful handicap for even his vigorous frame, and that Sherman, to make it heavier, must go and afford to the world the palpable proof of the bargain and fraud by the installation of the Returning Board villains in the New Or leans Custom-House and in the control of the Federal patronage in this city. We can imagine Stanley in the sacred retirement of his closet, or perhaps whilst drowsily affecting to hearken to the somniflo tones of his preceptor, but with always a mental eye upon the can vass which involved so seriously his po litical fortunes, thus venting his wrath ful reflections upon this conduct of his co-conspirators: "I always thought John Sherman was an ass and had no loyalty to anybody but himself. Here, after seeing that he has no chanceq for the Senatorship, and after coming here and making a speech, which was enough to beat the party, he now appoints those miserable tools of ours in the Louisiana fraud, thereby confirming the bargain w, Ich has been charged against us and bringing ridi cule and contempt upon the civil serfvice reform idea. And this he does to beat me for the Senatorship and to gratify the spite, which has never died out of his bosom, as an old Whig against an ancient Democrat. Why, didn't he bilk Ander son and Wells, having got all that he needed out of themJ We can never work through this campaitgn under such a load of infamy as this. John Sher man and I are utterly extinguished po litical leaders by this accident. It is some consolation that, to reach me, he has had to plunge the knife through his own meagre body. After the elec tion in Ohio a photograph of John Sherman would sell like hot cakes, over the title of the Lize Pinketon of the Louisiana case. It would be the best pictorial embodiment of the natu ral product of the most stupendous political fraud ever consummated in this country." CONSPIRING TO ROB THE STATE, Senator Patterson, of South Carolina, has been indicted and a warrant and requisition have issued for his arrest, on the charge of conspiring with other carpet-bag offlcials to defraud the State and to bribe and corrupt legislators and other offlials. This case suggests not a few similar grounds upon which certain of our own carpet-bag ex-offifial might be held to a like liability un ler the criminal law. We have frequently in these columns propounded the liquiry, whether the notorious diversion of the public funds and defalcations of public officers, pro cured and counseled by higher officials, does not subject the latter to some criminal responsibility. When the de faulters are held to indictments, is not something to be done with the higher officers who were privy to, and coun selors, aiders and abettors of the offenses of these subordinate officials ? Are they not in like manner with Sena tor Patterson subject to the charge of conspiracy to rob and defraud the State ? Thus two of the tax collectors in this olty have been indicted, arrested and held to ball for large defalcations. One of them, probably both, aver that they were induced to divert and misapply the public funds by the late Governor. One of them declares that he was a merely nominal official, was absolutely con. trolled in all actions by the Governor and a special agent or friend of his, and that he never received or disbursed the moneys of the State paid into his office, and is not responsible for their disap pearance. There is much other evi dence extant to bring home to the higher officials of the State a criminal participation in the defaults and delin quencies of their indicted subordinates. In view of these facts there is a very natural inquiry, whether there is not.as much rigor and power in the law of Louisiana as in that of South COrolina to bring to justice those who have con spired to rob and defraud the State, and if there is, why may it not be put in ac tion as against a claimant to a seat in the United States Senate as well as against one who already holds a seat in that august hody? TRUE CONOILIATION. "Let us have r ciprocal reconcilia tion," says the Washington Nittonal Republican, and then it aesks that the charges against Patterson, Smalls and the other South Carolina R uiwal rogues and thieves be dismissed. Thts it asks, because Gov. Hampton req iested the President to have the nr.secutloa of "the Ellerton rioters" dismissed which, by-the-by, was not done. As those engig el in the Ellerton dif ficulty are murderers, in the eyes of the Republican. its pmoposition of "reeipro oat reoonolltatiou" is notb ng less thaa a propoei tiL to swap aurderer.' fur: &ýkhw. , - lia want qny system of reconcillation which inoludes the exemption of orlii nals, be they Democrats or Republi cans, from prosecution. It the Federal authorities believe that the so-called Ellerton rioters are guilty of murders, let them go on with the proseoution, as the State authorities of both South Car olina and Louisiana are bound to pro ceed with all their energy, ability and resources in the prosecution of the po litical thieves, forgers and perjurers, who are at last in the power of the law. In both States we have legitimate gov ernments and honest courts. We are willing that the charges of murder and flolence made against our fellow-oiti zene shall be tried before such courts; if the charges are true let the criminals be convicted and punished; if they ate false the accused will be acquitted, bnd this is all we desire. Our people never advocated or justi fied murder. But let the Returning Board, the defaulting tax collectors, and all other Radical officials, in both States, who are charged with perjury, theft, forgery and peculation be also put on trial, and if guilty, convicted and punished. Conciliation does not mean the com pounding of felonies. Its true mean ing is, the impartial and rigorous en forcement of the law and the aggressive and unrelenting prosecution of all crim inals. The officers who best perform this duty are the true and only con ciliators. A strange confession is that made by the Treasury Department in reference to the counterfeit $5 notes on the Tam aqua (Pa.) National Bank, that are now widely circulated throughout the coun try. The workmanship on the counter feit note is much better done than the Bureau of Engraving and Printing can possibly do, and the note much prettier and more perfect than those manufac tured by the government. This the treasury officials themselves readily ad mit, and declare that the counterfeit note can be easily told from the true one by its superiority and excellence. If Sherman could only be persuaded 'to suspend civil service reform for a day or two and put that counterfeiter at the head of the Bureau of Engraving and Printing, it would prove of real benefit to the country. There isan unwisual, an unprecedented show of steamships now in our port. They have somewhat anticipated the receipts of the crop, but nevertheless are rapidly securing freight, and will have quick dispatch. Their places will be promptly filled by other steamers which are on their way to our port. At present the following steamers of the largest size are rapidly loading: The Muriel, Hannover, the Junlata, the City of Brussels, the Sumatra, the Oberon, the Memling, the Olive, the Carolina and the Chilian. Several of these ships have received already their loads of grain at the elevator, and oth ers await further receipts of produce which we are gratifttri to observe are rapidly increasing. They will not have to wait long. This is an unusual show log of steam marine for this season and is an encouraging proof of a revival of our commerce. DIED.
