A CRIME TO CRITICIO.E TlU COURTS.
NEw OILEANA, May 23, 1978.
Iditor Tho, orat-The. first duty of the e
citisen is tAo obey Lh lair, afterwards to
trit.cis. it. He may then have his re
course. Damages for false imprisonment;
for defamation of character, loss of rep
utation, et,. This is true also of corpo
rations, and of judges of courts, save in so far
that the Supr. me (Court is the ",pr'nme hJudge
of the laiw. The Supreme Court cannot he
held at bar before us, citizens, simply because.
we are not judges of the law. If the Supreme f
,Court decid(es adversely to us, we have our
trecoulre- we appeal; but we do not suppose I
that the court or any member of it has e)on
directly or indirectly prejudiced as against
vu. Now, there is no getting over the fact
that we (arnd I mean the .hole Shiat), have
complete econldence in our Supreme Court.
They believe every member of it to be pure
and above re proach. Yet it appears that the
correspondents of our home papers -papers
supported by ourselves, presume to attack
from their garrets our Supreme Court of
Louisiana. "Antelope" writes to the
Pie"ayunr that the decision in the
railroad ease was made because it was popu
lar in New Orleans---then he says it is not
popular in New York--and foretells what the
New Yorkers are going to do, et.. I've cop
pered on Antelope s telegrams and prophesles
these twenty years, and am not broke yet.
But now cormes Buell, (your own corresipon
dent,) who says In a dispatch of recent date:
"The late action of your $u preme Court is
made to appear in no enviable light, It appear
ing by strong cireumstantial proof, the tert of
n'hich I am not now permitted to give, that
the decision by which Tom Anderson was
rescued from the penitentiary was procured
by intlwn rs which a ladxy like the Supreme
Court of a State should be Independent of."
This is simply wrong; if the Antelopes of
the PiRcagone and the Buells of the DEMOCRIAT
are to have their absurd and unfounded at
tacks on the purity of our Supreme Court
published through the columns of our two
great local papers, it would be well to inves
tigate the court or look into the anitnus of the
The Different Alms of the Party In Differ
[N. Y. Star.)
Although the Nationals of different sec
tions of tihe country are not in accord upon
some things, and hold certain impracticable
theories, there is at the bottom of their move
ment principles and views which demand
recognition, and which our public men will be
forced to reco.gnize sooner or later. In the
Eastern States, a special feature applicable
to that section Is the protection of the manu
facturing laborers and the improvement
of their condition; in New York the
specialty is a demand for work
from the government when needed
and a curtailment of the hours of labor; in
the West. the particular aim of the farmers,
farm laborers and others is for free trade,
cheap transportatlon, and to reduce the pow
er of railroad monopolies; in California, the
main object is to check Chinese emigration,
and hostility to the cheap labor of Chinamen,
which has a very depressing influence upon
the condition of the white laboring popula
tion; in Pennsylvania It takes the form of
antagonism to the powerful mining compa
nies and protection to manufacturing. in
Throughout the different States and sec
tions there are, besides these named, other
conflicting interests of a local character. In
the South there are scarcely any Nationals,
because their system of labor and their pro
ducts for the most part are unique. Nowhere
in that part of the country are large numbers
of the laboring population crowded together
as they are in the cities of the North. There
is no difficulty about getting a decent living
in the prolific and genial South. Hence we
see the movement coni ned clhiefly to the
North, East and West. Still there are some
objects and views of the Nationals which
many Southerners hold in common with
them, particularly with regard to the na
tional banks, railroad monopolies and a
cheap, ample currency.
TEI IINVESTIGATION COMMITTEE.
Personnel of the Petter Committee.-Hew
the Investigatien will be Carried.
[St. Louis Republicani
WASHINGTON, May 20.-The select commit
tee for the fraud investigation was named to
day, and is conceded to be very strong. Mr.
Potter, the chairman, is absent in New York,
and the committee will not organize and get
to work before the end of the week. The idea
is to conduct the investigation here, although
it may be necessary to send to Florida and
Louisiana for evidenee, especially to the
former State, as McLin is there quite ill.
Driggers, the probate judge of Baker county,
where the principal frauds were committed,
is said to be in the city under the eyes of the
Democratic managers. Garfield presented in
the House to-day a cablegram from Minister
Noyes, asking to be suhpcenaed before the
committee. The Republicans are somewhat
reconciled to the minority representation on
the committee although it is not what they
wanted. Jacob D). Cox. of Ohio, is the only
man on the conmmittee who is anything of a
friend of Hayes, and his friendship is nothingg
like that of hloster, (larileld or Matthews, of
the Ohio delegation. Great things are ex
pected of Road, of Maine. He is a new
member; but Hamlin and other Maine
men say he is the stongest man in
the Maine delegation in or out of the Senate.
The Democrats are very well pleased with
their representation on the committee. Three
of the members. Morrison, McMahon and
Blackburn were on the Louisiana committee
of a year ago. None of. the members were on
the Florida committee. Hunter was a mem
ber of the Electoral Commission. Stenger is
at present a member of the Judiciary and,
although young, is an able man. Cobb is a
now member, but is credited with much polit
ical wisdom. Morrison is generally conceded
by the Democrats as being the guiding spirit
of the committee and as such has their full
confidence. McMfahon will conduct the ex
aminations before the committee. Potter,
the chairman, will be eminently fit in all he

Air. Editor- I wish to ask foj a wife through
your paper. I want to get maried. My time:
is nearly out, and I intend to settle in this
country. I intend starting a chicken ranch.
I want a wife to take care of young chickens.
I have got money. My wife will not have
much to do, only milk nine cows, feed six

cook three meals every day, and the rest of
her time she can go out among the neighbors.

At St. Petersburg I had a coachman-a
most respectai-le man. Once a month he used
to make his appearance in my lodgings, fall
upon his knees before me and say something.
I would nod. He would then withdraw, go
and get drunk for three (lays and nights, and
then reappear, kiss my hand and resume his
duties as coachman. Had I not permitted
this safety valve he would have got drunk

A writer in the San Francisco Chronicle
maintains that the resources of Alaska are
abundant in quantity and magnificent in
quality. They are divided between the sea
and the land. The fisheri.es are described as
being among the finest in the world. As
many as 7000 salmon are often taken at a

even heavier, and distance all competition in

near Sitka ten well-developed ledges of gold
bearing quartz have been uncovered and 9
eight mines are already located and will soon
be in active operation. Those ledges, which I
have been followed three miles or more, are I
pronounced, by a competent Russian eni
neer, capable of averaging $3.2 per ton. Ex- C
periented miners who have examined them
think the Alaska yield of gold and silver will -
eventually be larger than that of California
