XJU From the Radical having failed
to secure an effective majority in the re
cent eirction in Louisiana, and, proba
bly, also, in Alabama, it by no reeans
nec'fs?ari!y follows that on effort to
forcibly and fraudulently enrry said
election was not made. When it is seen
by the census of 18C0 that Louisiana had
within her borders not exceeding 70,000
black males above the age of twenty-one
years, and that her registration returns
exhibit ?2,8G5 negro voter, it quite
cease" to be a matter of surprise that the
returns of her late election do not ap
proximate the registration figures. There
is every reason to suspect fraud and un
lawful procedure throuzhout the State,
from the opening of the registration to
the closing of the polls, and innumera
ble facts are adducable to confirm the nu
prehension. The treacherous memories
of the negroes at the polls', in their ina
bility to recollect the names by which they
registered, is, to say the least, an intima
tion that some of the " new sovereigns "
may, possibly, have registered under
more than one name. Their failing
memories may have been overburdened
with patronymics, and bewildered in a
cognnmenous mist. To recollect his
real name we cannot think would puzzle
the brain of the most stupid and tliitkest
iknlled of the race, while to call at will
to memory the election nom de plume,
put in his mouth by the aspirant for his
ballot, would be quite another matter,
and might, we dare say, be at
tended with greater difficulty. That
inndreda and perhaps thousands under
age were permitted to vote in both
States there is every reason for believ -ing.
Little challenging, if any, was
done anywhere, and, as white men held
themselves aloof, the " purity of the
ballot-box " was a matter solely intrusted
to those anxious and, du ply interested
in seeing the vote sw piled to as large
numbers as possible. Eow all this must
necessarily Lave operated can very well
be imaziued by these who were witnesses
to the late farce of a Bimilur character
in Tennessee, which was limited in its
duration to a single day.
Truly, when thec facts ire considered
the ui. scrupulous au l determined effort
to foist, hy force and fraul aa obnox
ious form of government opon resK'.less
and powerless communit'ie of white knd
intelligent m"n (V'nsrvativs in
Tunisians. Alabama, and wherever li-
ral and magnanimous views trevail,

A TWO-FOLD GOOD.
Memphis, preoccupied with ill com
mercial distriiinl upon her cupilul and
effort, has, during thu year just passod,
permitted her railroad energies to sleep
only to sleep, and not to be paralyzed,
at a friend at onr elbow suggests. The
Little Hock railroad has dragged its alow
length along, weighted to a damaging ex
tent by the incubus foisted upon it by
Fremont and lisrand project of El Pao
notoriety. That has, however, passed
away into bankruptcy, and fittinly, too,
in the very city New York where it was
conceived, and was born, it was said,
amid much jingling of specie and loud,
loud promises, and baptised with high
sounding title. All that has been " used
up," and the nursling of so much pro
mise has been gobbled by that giant with
awful appetite for failure the Commis
sioner of Bankruptcy. That has all
passed away, leaving the fathers of a
more reasonable project and a more
modestly named pet to indulge their
fancy, and push to what, for Memphis
will prove for the present a more solid
conclusion. Tha Littlo Rock rarlroad
will be rapidly, as the means at hand
will permit, finished, and so bringing
our city nearer a broad extent of country
hose people are our kindred in sympathy
8nd desire to aid us. And better still, tho
Memphis and St. Louis road, so littlo
spoken of lately, is immediately to be
commenced and pushed rapidly to com
pletion, levying a large and productive
section of alluvial land, which will thus
be brought into usa ; a now almost inv
nenetrable swamp be reduced to tho
sway of man and brought into subjection
to the kindly influences of high culture.
The Memphis and St. Louis railroad
s no longer the myth that for so many
rears men uavo tamea aoonu it
has actually and in fact, been initiated,
The contrucls for grading have been
"let," and a few days at farthest will
find the hardy laborers at work with
pick and spade, throwing up a roadway
for the iron horse, and at the snmo time
levy for tho reclamation and ultimate
protection of thousands of acres of land
now lost to use. Quietly indeed, but
none the less quickly and energetically,
Col. Porter lifts prosecuted his work, and
n the face of daring opposition from the
friends of the Fulton and Cairo railroad,
and the friends of the Helena branch,
nd at las: has the satisfaction of wit
nessing a commencement of a scheme of
ucb merit and to be the source of
bundant good for Memphis.
Commencing nearly opposite this city,
making a curve at a point half way from
Mound City and Marion, the Memphis
nd St Louis railroad leaving Oldham
on the right will intersect a lake and
avoiding the deep elbow of the Missis-
ppi above Cat Island, mako almost a
straight line to the Iron Mountain.
Looking at tho map, the reader can
form no adequate idea of the number of
acres thus to be rescued from overflow.
It is an already well settled fact, and
one that has time and again been urged
as showing the inexpediency of levying
as far down as Memjus or below, that
nearly all the overflow that occurs comes
from above; and thatx this overflow,
paesing-into the St. Francis river and
its hundred little and big tributaries,
gorges their channels, and in time is
thrown back upon the low lunda whence
it was drained, there to remaiu until the
Mississippi below falls sufficiently to
raw upon its southern tributaries for
sustenance, limes out ot number trie
States above, as on the Mississippi and
below Cairo, have been cal!cd upon to
levy ; but not convinced that they could
erive any immediate advantage there
from, they have been slow to respond,
nd, responding, have done their work
n so slovenly a manner as not to afford
the relief desired by their more southerly
hbors. The " National " (aa it has
ome to ho called) Government has been
petitioned; but Its attention being ex-
usively given to North and - north
western improvements, we have little
to look for or hope for from that quarter,
unless indeed it be proven that levying
is necessary for the immediate benefit of
the negro.
What States have failed in, and the
" noylional '.' folks won't "hear to," the
Memphis and St. Louis Railroad Cam-
will give to the owners of and
pany
squatters upon the now swamp lands of
Crittenden, Mississippi, Greene, Craig
head and other counties of Arkansas
protection against the fluodj that threaten
and so often destroy the results of t'eir
labor; and that, too, at the sirae time
that they bridge, by a good railroal, the
country through which this grand levee
will pa; les.sei.inz the distince, and
making tributary lu u a people whosa
interests are now and have been com
pelled in other channels by season of the
difficulties of intercenrnunieation that
have intervened between
It is s'jmethinjj to have thii3 much of
improvement to chronicle, especially in
these days of despondency and political
gloom. It is an iplmtion almost; at
least it is . an encouragement, reding
upon which we may take freh hrait and

there, is "life in the oi l land yet."
congratulate Calonid Porter and
his coadjutors, end hope for them pro
pitious weather and help sufficient for an
early fiuiji of the road.
The Cincinnati Cummercial baa
a correspondent in this city, who, what
ever may be his otlur acquirements, is
evidently but poorly p:siH as regards
the corisii'utional law of Tcnne.iee. In
a letter of recent dale he writes that pa
per as follows :
Tennessee, is nut only a nrgro
State, but must remain as it is, sub
ject to negro d -mi'ialion,. until a new
Constitution is framed. A Convention
can ii'it be callod tor th purpose of re
tnodoiire the con-l I'll ion without the
aMTt of the IHis'ft'ure, and this can
not now be ccrd. l'.rownlow and oro
nif;..tent extreme's w ll never const-M to
the c'-nvorst.on of th tns,s of 1 en
ness t-at.s fur ti e jurjse ot reforming a
code which iuny i " ,,i,B
equal rights.
For the butler information of the au
thor of thil bit of fallacy, and others who
may, with him, be perplexed with doubt
upon the subject, we reproduce so mut
of the organio law of Jennessce
touches the authority of the peoplo, in
dependent of the Legislature, to call
.n...,imn xiul in that convention
modify, change, amend or abolish the
form of government, as their judgments
may dictate. Article one, section on
of the Declaration of Rights reads
Tki .11 nnurar ! inherent in the peo
ple, and all free government are founded
on their authority, and instituted for
their peace, safety and happiness ; for
the advancement ot tnese enas mrjr um,
at all timet, an inalienable ana inae
b..;hli rlirht tn alter, reform, or abolisl
the government in sih manner as they
mar think proper.
' The eleventh article aud twelfth sec
tion of the Constitution further says :
The declaration of rights hereto pre
fixed ia declared to be a part of the Con
stitution of this State, and shall never be
violated on any pretense whatever. And
to guard against transgression of the
biph nnwnra wa have dolegated, we
declare that everything in the bill of
rights contained is excepted out or tne
general poweig-ot government, ana sou
forever remain inviolate.
We might pause here, as no comment
or elucidation could possibly render
moro clear or unmistakable the purport
and spirit of the law clothed in the
lancuace Quoted. We bclicvo we have
discovered, however, the basis on which
tho Commtrciat correspondent and
others with him havo rested an impres
sion of the necossity of the . assent
of the Legislature in the calling
of a convention to reshape or reform
the organic law. Article eleven,
and section three of the Constitu
tion, provides that "Any amendment,
or amendments to this Constitution may
be proposed in the Sonata or House of
Representatives," and such amendments
being proposed, it further provides how
and under what forms they shall he
made. But how this provision can in
any manner affect tho right of the people
at all times to alter, reform or abolish
the Government, ' we cannot discover
any where ia the context. The right of
the Legislature as expressed in the pro
vision, that they "may propose, etc.," ia
simply tub modo and permissive, while
that of the people on the other band is,
by the very language of the section, ab
solute, and indefeasible. After having
pointed out these clauses in the instru
ment, we feel assured a doubt can no
onger exist in the mind of any one as
to the right of the people to call a con
vention and therein modify the organio
aw of Tennessee, bo as to " give all
white men equal rights" and that too
without the assent of the Legislature."
We again suggest the calling of such a
convention, believing -no constitutional
obstacle or hindrance exists to its assem
bling, and that it would not only not be
revolutionary, but in strictest conformity
to organic law and to the cardinal prin
ciples upon which the Government is
bused.
Kji. Some idea of the manner in which
the courts in the Fifth Military District
are being run may be formed from the
following, which comes in the shape of
a telegraph dupatcb from New Orleans
to the morning press :
Jadce Abell, counsel for Ilenry Smith,
accused of perjury, filed an exception
yesterday. The case is being tried before
assistant-Recorder Dunn, of the Second
District Court. Dunn is a negro, lately
elected by the new Council. Judge Abell,
n bis exception, sets forth that Uunn
being a negro, not recognized by the laws
of Louisiana as a citizen, is not legally
an officer. Dunn overruled this excep
tion, tried the case, and discharged the
prisoner. Ihe prosecuting witness re
fused to take the stand or be sworn.
The negro acting Recorder asked him if
he intended to insult the ennrt. He
replied he did, and was fined $25.

the Pott from Washington says rumors
of Cahinent changes are current, whether
thore is any truth in them or not. It is
known at least that one officer of the
Cabinet Gen. Grant anticipates being
relieved from the duties of his position

A prominent official of the War Depart
ment stated to-day that the General has
held himself in readiness for a week
past to surrender his portfolio to whom
soever might be nppointed to succeed
him.

London, October 4. The following
paaticulars of the recent movements of
Gen. Garibaldi have been received from
Italy : While in a passion at Alexandria,
Garibaldi persistently refused to give his
parole not to engage in any hostile enter
prise ugainst tho papal States. Mean
while the Italian government, hoping to
liny the excitement which was caused by
is arrest, gave orders for the transfer of
the prisoner to his home at Cdprera, with
out insisting upon a parole. The Goneral
was accordingly taken to the island,
here he was apparently set at liberty.
Soon after his arrival he suddenly disap
peared from the island, andsucceededn
reaching the main land ; bnt his move
ments had been carefully watched, and
e was again arrested and sent back to
aprera, where he now remains, under
guard a prisoner lu his own home.
