lt ia gratifying to seo the great
iiuauiruity with which thc prominent
loaders und public men givo Iho
benefit of (heir counsel to tho people
of these States in thc present condi?
tion of their publia depression. We
have already published tho opinions
nf Generals Lice, Hampton, Beaure?
gard, Longstreet and others. Wo
have now before UR an address from
tho Legislature of Louisiana to tho
peoplo of that State, which will ap?
ply witli equal force to tho peoplo of
all tho other Southern States winch
como under tho operation.'! of thc
reconstruction billa of Congress.
Thc Legislature, in this address,
says that tho measures of Congress
precipitate upon tho people of thc
State tho consideration of moment?
ous questions, affecting not merely
their present and futuro welfare, but
involving the very political existence
nf tho State. Tu this emergency, the
Legislature says that it becomes abso?
lutely necessary for the people to
determine forthwith what lino of eon
duet it is most proper for them to
pursue. Thc address very properly
says to tho peoplo that tho subject
matter is placed beyond tho pale of
legislative action by a power over
which they havo no control; but
after referring to tho measures, and
after giving them sober and serious
reflection, thc members concluded to
give their constituents tho benefit of
t heir advice.
We make tho following extracts
from tho address, and commend them
to the consideration of our renders:
"Wc exhort tho people to organize
thoroughly, and take au active part
in all elections, under whatever au?
thority they may be held. Avoid all
semblance of opposition to the free
and fair suffrage of every man having
tho right to voto under tho authority
"Let thcro bc no collisions or con?
flicts of any kind.
"Avoid discussions among your

zens in whose wisdom, discretion and
courage you can place implicit confi?
dence, and whose qualifications shall
conform, ns far ns practicable, to thc
requirements of Congress. Suppress,
ns far as possible, the consideration
of all questions which may lend to n
division of opinion among yon.
"Look to the characters nf the mell
whom you elect.
"Do not seek to bind them in ad?
vance by any particular courso ol
policy, tho wisdom and propriety ol
which must at last bo determined bj
t ho "logic of events," but leave them
freo and un tn mmelcd to act as theil
judgments may dictato, for thc into
rest and honor of tho State.
"Let moderation and temperance
guido you in counsel and conduct.
Restrain nivl "onfroi tho ebullition1
ot inconsiderate, rash and turbulent
men, who may precipitate collisions,
from which nothing but injury to thc
State and peoplo can possibly result,

prevent tho power of tho State iron
i'alliug into unworthy hands; but a
tho same time, be sure that youi
choico shall bo respected, and thai
thc men so chosen shall be clot bei
with authority which nono eau quos
From t' . friendly and temperate
tone of all tho orders issued by fbi
Generals commanding tho militan
districts, so far as they have beet
published, wo aro of opinion that, i
such counsels ns tho above and thost
of tho Intent leaders of tim people
are acted upon and followed up ho
nosily ano faithfully, the work o
reconstruction will proceed withoul
let or hindrance, and the State Go

gross of events under that law, if tin
peoplo will aid tho authorities in car

ito divisions among tho Southern peo
plo nt this time, and any effort ti

naneed. Tho peoplo of tho State ar
all on hoard tho saino craft, and ti

MASS MEETINU or FREEDMEN.
About 'M)\) of the freedmen residing
in tho village audits vicinage, on last
Monday night,, convened at tho
school house, for tho purpose of or?
ganizing a political party. Tho plat?
form of the Union Republican (radi?
cal) party, which was ratified in
Charleston last week, was adopted,
and most of the freedmen present
seemed willing to pledge it their
support, though we are certain that i
not more than half a dozen (if that
many) knew what they were voting:
During the meeting, a collection
was taken up to assist in thc publica?
tion of a radical journal lr. Charles?

sensibly remark'.".1, that tho times
were hard, and charity begins at
home, ninny hard-earned shin plasters
were doposited in the collector's hat.
Fanaticism does not caro for the
starving of its votaries; its leaders

We have better hopes of the apple

Lt was a maxim of Hobbs (wc bc
i liove) that "?i state of uni uro is a
state of Avar"-that by a law of their
existence, when in a primitivo state,
men would prey upon each other.
Civilization only altered tho modo of
manifesting this natural instinct. It
introduced trickery, cunning, chi?
canery, hypocrisy, or, as it is politely
designated, diplomacy, ns a substi?
tute in most eases for violence; but
civilized peoplo still do not hesitate,
when diplomacy fails, t<> resort to
violence, if it will accomplish their
ends. In a state of nature, weak men
do nob make war on the strong, nor
do they in the civilized state, 'lo
uso thc modern phrase, they restrain
the natural instinct if it don't "pay."
Wo are prompted to this train of
'.nought by thc announcement, which
we see in an exchange, that lately in
tho French (..'bambers the Duke do
Pcrsigny reproached England with
having tried to break up the Ameri?
can Union during the war; where?
upon tho London Times asserts that
England declined tho invitation of
the French Emperor to Join him in
recognizing tho Southern Confede?
racy. The New York Times is en?
joying this mutual recrimination, and
thinks the truth as to tho conduct of
foreign nations during tho war will
come ont after awhile. Wo think it
a capital subject for tho satire of the
American press. Tiloso two nations
occupy tho position of two boys who,
seeing another whipped by a bully,
meanly try lo curry favor with the
bully by charging each other with
having taken sides against him. Now
that the United States has succeeded
in tho war and developed n strength
which terrifies Europe, tho efforts
which England and France both
clandestinely made to aid tho Con?
federates aro denounced by both UH
crimes, while each meanly denies its
guilt, and accuses the other. Of
course, both bitterly regret that they
did not unite in favor of tho South,
but their regrets have not the virtue
ol" repentance in one respect, at least,
for they come too late.
The Fn nch Emperor had the sa?
gacity to foresee what would bo tin
result of the success of Hie United
Sillies., aud knew that tho disruption
of the Government wonlu strengthen
the monarchies of Europe aud ht
particularly beneficial lo his own in?
terests, mid therefore he made tilt
proposition directly to England earl;
in tho war to unite with him in rccog
nizing Sont bern ii.dependence.
The I3ugli.su Cabinet, equally aux
ions to seo disunion successful, ant
clandestinely endeavoring in even
way to promote it, was, nevertheless
afraid of the partnership, undaban
of thc United States besides. Si
neither interfered, and now thej
amuse the "Yankees" with thei
united laudation ol' thc greatness o
the United Stales and their mutua
belittlement of each other. Tin
"so-called" can heartily help tin
"Yankees" to enjoy tho fun in thi
matter, and fully slime with them th
contempt which nil Americans feel fo
the result of European diplomacy n
regard i<> our Into civil war.
