Hamilton's ipeech, Texa'" se'ems from the following to be in the condition of Bill Arp's wife's lisband - not yet harmonized. NlV ORLEANS, April 1.-Gov. Hamilton, of Texas, made a speech at Austin recently, in which he opposed spme ordinances passed by the Conven tion as not being Republiean or meeting the necessary demand made. They had Passed but one ordinance which accord fully with the President's policy, and that Was declaring the war debt null aild void. He appealed from the ac tion of the- Convention to the people. The' Convention had passed an ordi nance exemptirg all persons who, under authority of civil or military power, had inflicted in.jury upon persons during the war from being .held accountable, such an ordinance would not and should not shield them. He called upon the loyal people of the State to work together. He believed provisions should be made to admit the negro'to vote if he becani elevated and came up to a certain stan dard. The Convention had refused to give the blacks any quota of the school fund, or make any provision for their education. They had, however, boen taxed to assist the whites in sending their children to school. He intended to announce to the people those who had worked against the interest of the State LovAaty-W -rAT IS IT?-The edi. tor. of the ohAttanonga Union, who fought four years in the Federal armies, and is still,as much attached to the Union as ever, makes the following sensible remarks in relation to what constitutes "Wo would confess'o'urselves under obligations to any one competent to in form us who would tell us in what loy. alty consist, and to whom fealty is due. Unless the teachings of the greatest statesmen ofthe country were wrong, there can be no allegiance due from i citizen of the United States to any per. son, but only to the Constitution of the United States, and that loyalty consists solely-in obedience to the laws, and res pect and reverence for the Constitution of the United States, and secondly, to the Constitution anq laws of whichever of the several States any one may chance to reside in. "Such, at least, are our opinions upon this point, and we are unaware of any constitutional . provision which makes it necessary to curse.rebels-in order to es. tablish our own loyalty. In point of fact, we deny~ that there are now any~ rebels. Certqinly those who engaged in the rebellion, bdt yvho acknowledged its defeat, and are now using every en deavor to sho* themiselves good citizons, are not rebek, and, if they have done wrong previotiely, it wvould certainly bo more sensible to encourage them in -their present wel-Joiog than to berate them for their for er errors. . "For thosq who are still striving to stir up seditin and revolution, no mats ter whamt side they may have espoused during-the late war, we have nothing bSut blauie ; but those who now respect ,thQ Oonstitutioti of the U1nited States as the siupreme law of the lantil; who are willing to ober all the laws, and who are strivmpg to 'do their duty in that state of life to wvhich it has pleas ed Gcd to call them,' we say, with out caring to' examine into the record, you are now thie loyal men'of the coun ery stn,ts firmly upon the platform, that no ot ier test of loyalty caiq he right[tly .d9manded of any man ti to ackbowhledge the Constitu tion o(the United Stqites as the supreme law of,thei land1 and to obey all the laws of his cotntry.

The Governor of ' the State of South Carolina and the late Provisionial Gov ernnor, Mr. Perry, ha:ve represen,ted1 to the President that the Superior Coiurtp of that State wvil not adnminister justice under the State laws, even -against white men who weJre crimninals, because of the interference of the military an thority, under General Sicles. It seems that, by the criminal code of the State, white men are liable, for petit larceny. horse-thievin,g, &c., to the penl alty of thirty nine stripes, laid on tbe bare back. There is no pLenitetitiary'in the State, anid the Legislature adjourned without creating that institution, which is so necessary for all the purposes of' civilization. A case camne to the State Court, sittitg 6:m Charleston, of aggra. vated crimep, and, upon conviction, the criminal, wno was a 'white mni, anid to the manior bore, was sentened to re. cie ine-and-thirty lashes. . Thie cere mony was about to be performed, when Ma.jor-General Sickles forbade it in an oflicial order. As the matter nmow stands, crimmnals of the white and native race cannot be* punished in South Carolina according to her own laws, and, as the Legislature is not in sessiOn, no other code cans bepro vided. The President, in this emergency, is urged to abrogate General Sickles' or der. What the.President will do in the case 'is ydt linknown.'
