IMarksvillo Bullotini But a few short weeks will elapse Ibefore( the Lgislature meet,s, and an interesting sessin it promises to be in view of the grave matters which will then and there be discussed. Ac trdling to the generally declared wish, both of the public and the pres.., the flrst duty to which the Logislature will probably address ltself will be the consideration of the very grave and Important question of the revision ot the State constitution. To this all minor questions will have to be postponed, all others elbordinated, if the Legislature hopes to .rry out in a spirit of fairness the views of It represents. There is no doubt that the people of this Htate favor a revision of their constitution gand there is no doubt that they have indicated sclearly as such a thing can be done, that revision to be at all practicable, can only e effected thronugh the agency and instru maentality of a convention. Whatever differ eale of opinion may have once existed with Sserence to the mode in which this revision ihould be effected, this difference has long mines disappeared and passpd out of view in t Ue light of more recent discussion. All par Sare now in accord that the present con ftitution is too defective to be reached by amendments, and that we have no option, if we desired one, but to call a convention and fr me an entirely new constitution. The Legislature has thus a duty before it, 1nd it is a plain one. Neither ofllclal blan dishment in high places, nor the Ilatteries and najolery of the capital, must be allowed interfere with this high and patriotic duty. The people are in no mood to be trifled with. The votes of their representatives wilU be Olosely scanned, and a rigorous accountabililty enforced. The representative who expects to lsiJty his trust and yet escape punishment, grosly deceives himself. There will be no mercy shown to recalcitrants. Nor is it to be eredited that any such will be forced Into the trnks ofa paty whose watchword is reform. The duty of the Legislature, in this view, we repeat then, becomes an exceedingly plain lne. % firsot act, after voting the appropria U f, should be to order the convention. Its st, if t carries out the will of the constitu wt, will be to adjourn. , Against. [Lincoln Sentinel.1 Thetime Is now near at hand when the con ta convention question must be set and we hope it will be in the negative of Sproposition; for we believe that a consti S btona! convention held at this time would trove detrimental to the well being of the e and good government of the &ite, We Sinstl of calling a convention that otah prudenoe and economy will constrain the z t~-aelilature to propose amendments to Oonsitution that will inimediately, when pted, ourtail governmental expenses remove the heavy burden of taxation M the shoulders of the people. A reduo Sof taxation is the all-important matter ch consideration at this time. But in our ts to bring about this desiratum we must careful not to make any false step. There are other questions than that of economy to consildered before the policy of calling a tutlonal convention can be doter miln ed. The whole state of political mattrs must be weighed in the scale. The political sentiments of a majority of the voters of this State are by no smeans settled and who knows what the re sult will be if we hold a constitutional con wentlon? To attempt such a thing in the present juncture of affairs would certainly place a very dangerous argument into the mouths of our adversaries, and, we fear, re ault in the defeat not only of the roplosed constitution, but of the Democratic nominooees uor the next general election. But aside from all this, we believe that it would be cheaper, wiser and better, at this time. to reduce taxation by amending the con stitution than by calling a convention to frame a now document and submit it for rati "'""l.(toan. A constitutional convention will o0st the ieple not l.es than two hundred aid fifty thousand dollars, besides a great eal of excitement and unnecessary trouble. When we consider the uncertainty of the result of a constitutional convention and the general confusion that will inevitably follow whether the new instrument be adopted as our organic law or not, we enter an earnest roitest against the movement for a constitu convention to be called by the next W Lgslature. By proposing amendments to lthe constitution the most objectionable fea t tes, expensive provisions of the constitution ,aln be changed, giving great relief to the tax payer and at no more cost than will natural incurred by the next session of the egilatMre. Most of the arguments we have seen in favor of a constitutional convention have been addressed mainly to the prejudices and passions of the people, and not to their reaeson. The question to consider is, not when the present constitution was adopted, nor who by, but what are its objectionabie features, and how can the necessary changes best be made. If the people of Louisiana were to have a thousand constitutional conventions, the greater part of the present constitution uld be engrafted into each new constitution. The objection has been raised to proposed amendments by the Legislature that "the people" should say what the constitutional .aw should be. In answer to this it is only aaeessary that "the people" have just as 7much voice in adopting amendments as they fould have in adopting a new constitution. The convention would be composed of del aates from all parts of the State, and its polil Ucal complexion would be similar to the pres ent "make-up" of the Legislature.
