The Louisiana Convention baa (lis following resolution (verbatim) before it I lf.r.l., I Ttnr fha lnval neor.la of the State of Lo'iinana. from a Inns: experience) under the while man a bondaie in this Wato, present our thanks to the IWth and 4"lh Congress; and further, that we indorse every deliberation for the cr-pre-eed re-'e s of the State, and we are also tlmnKlui to ine nauicai inrnua lurnumi iiut the United States and elsewhere on the fare of the globe ; wo furthermore pray the Convention seoibled todeliberatethnroughly upon the poor oppressed people under the same baaia of the Congress ot lt-i mat ull men ereatcd equal boretolore be rogardca aJ cm lens. Thomas M. Conway u invited to give in address before the Convention, on the ground that the "Republican" party is "preparing for a Lvt trugnle'4 through the Republican Congressional Committee, of which laid Con way is chief. , A resolution was oifercd declaring that so subsequent Legislature should have power to " amend or annull any article " of the Consti tution or call any convention to do so for the period of seventy years. , General Hnneock hna issued a second and Itateimanlike order, declaring the proper uie ' of the military power to be to protect against foreign nations, uphold the laws and civil government oftheeountry.and secare to every person the enjoyment of life, liberty and prop erty. And it appearing that criminal justice In the State is hindered by an order of his prede cessor relative to the qualifications of jurors, and the decision of that matter belonging to the Legislature and the courts, it will not be interfered with by the military, and trial by jury will be honceforth regulated by the Constitution and civil laws without regard to any order previously issued. The order revoked provides fur the oxcluiion from the jury lists of all persons not registered voters under the te con'troction acts. Brerot Major' (Jeneral N. C. Buchanan re lieves Go.i. Mower as commander ot the sub district of Louisiana and as Bureau commis sioner. 1ST The St. Louis Democrat speak, of the President's message as " pig headed," "conceited," full of "dreary platitudes," "sadly lacking in an under standing of the age in which he lives," and " a labored denunciation of that plan of reconstruction which the repre sentatives of the people after long delib eration adopted, instead of Mr. John ion's scheme of surrender to rebels, and which, in spite of his hostility, is even now yielding Rood results in the States so lopg rebellious and disorganized." Does the Democrat think a falling off of the cotton crop from four millions to one, a good result. Does it f)ory in idleness, vagrancy and crime of every hue as a good result, and expect recog nition as anything but an unscrupulous partizan journal ? With reference to the President's inti mation that he would take the responsi bility of resisting usurpation in a cer tain event, the Democrat threatens him with Grant'as follows : We fancy A. Johntmn "taking the re sponsibilities of his office," and resisting a law of Congress by force of arms; we see him coolly arrested by Gen. Grant and a corporal's guard of soldiers ; we imagine him appealing through grated doors to a nation laughing and much re lieved; and we hear some good old deacon giving out the hymn : ' "With rapture we rejoice. To see the curse roiuoved." The time has cone by when words like these from Mr. Johnson1 can cause alarm, for he has no lpngr supporters nor fol lowers. Morn than once it has bepn in his power to produce a civil war. When he had the power, he had not the courage. And his windy words, now that be is powerless, move to increased contempt rather than to alarm or indig nation. The whole message is bad, and these threats particularly bad; but we can congratulate ourselves that the man who utters them can do little else. Most fortunately, the life of the nation is pro tected by other hands than his lithe time could ever come that the republic would need to be saved from ruin by a man as wicked and as weak as Johnson, then indeed we might prononnce self 'government a failure. ' tST'Vk'e are not even now certainly advised of the result of the Convention election in M'usisiippi. The Columbus Index of day before yeaterday isf still in doubt. It states that the Meridian Chron icle and' Vicksburg Iiepublicdn, both Radical papers, are of opinion the con vention has failed, and call on General Ord to order new election. ' This seems to ns wholly unnecessary, for Gen. Ord may just as well allow a few more to vote to "save appearance," or declare the majority sufficient, and settle the matter by an order. But while the exact vote is as yet un ascertained (there being still nineteen out of sixty counties to bear from), one thing is ascertained, and that is that if do white votes had been cast in the State, the defeat of the Convention would be rendered certain. It cannot bave carried ly more than four thousand Totes, and Cve thousand were polled in Marshall, Tippah anJ Lafayette for Mr. Watson. When that intellectual and re fined gentleman aits down ia Conven tion by the ide cf Sambo, he will need tota'.e Piiichnsan or two along to itnoka for him. And as to exerting any Conservative control there, be will Cn himielf a cipher, aud wish La had staid at home. HaT We see it suggested ia Radical quarters that a State "Republican Convention should be hold on the Hth of January the Nashville JYea an Time, however, suggesting a postpone' ment to the 22J of February, lias M llrownlow ordered his raelish to provid a " coil of rope " and a hangman for th ereat occasion T Will he permit tti " black and tan " portion of his subjects to meet in convention, and lorbid Hi nn.iiu,, in n color T Do n MI'II.Ka" - "- alienable rights" in his dominions bo long exclusively to cullud pussons And is that, which would be a crime i white nersons. a virtue in the black As the negroes are beating their drums pretty heavily, we should like to know i.i : n mnnna.

And how long? Shall the poor white man have no rest from olarms in his sanctuary for his wife and children ? And how long is it proposed to continue this state of things? a 167-We should siiDliose the new Recister in Bankruptcy, Mr. Latham, must be a first-class Radical, in the venomous sense, as both the Radical newspapers cf the city are in favor of him; one especially indorsing htm, and the other, we are told, calling on Con gress to legislate Judge Trigg out of office, if he should not connrm ine appointment. We shall not care to asit after the private views of the appointee in this case, but the fact that he is forced on Judge Trigg with a threat should procure his rejection. It is a very strong circumstance to show an appli cant unworthy, that he should be urged in this manner on a judge, who is liable to suspicion of being adverse to the applicant, only for his high character, mpartiality, integrity and superior capacity to discriminate with justice. Sn The cars on the Mobile and Great Northern railroad were recently thrown off the track, confusion and a smash up being the consequence. Costello's cir cus and menagerie happened to be on board, and also the members of the men agerie, at Montgomery. The scene is represented as being exceedingly rich, and almost equal to our Shaw, Beecher, Blewis and Bowen fandango of last night. The Mobile Tribune has employed an artist to paint the scene, and will soon present it to the public, Mr. Deagle ought to drop the Black Crook, against which injunctions are in the way, and take it up. faT The convention of foreigners and negroes met in Richmond on the 3d, by the direction of the so-called Congress, to legislate for Virginia. On the 11th the white and true people of Virginia will also convene to consider the public welfare. The issues involved have momentous interest Whether the con vention of whites can accomplish any good remains to be seen. It is at least peaceful, and cannot be legally sup pressed. It will be composed of delega tions from every county of the'wisest and most influential men of the State. It is to be hoped some salutary result may be secured by it. ItS" Since the resignation of Judge Randy, the two remaining judges of the Supreme Court of Mississippi have also, and for the same reasons, resigned. So the bench of the Court of Appeals is now vacant, and it cannot be filled again with qualified men, for none, such will take the test oath or be willing to adjudicate cases under the bayonet. The Judiciary is a farce in Mississippi, retained only for the purpose of saving appearances. The contrast between the new appointees and the learned, distinguished and hon orable old judges will be sad indeed. Congress. In the House Schcnck reported a hill repealing the authority of the Secre tury of the Treasury to make any re duction in the currency. The Secretary of War wns directed to communicate the report of Gen. Thomas in the case of Miliken, arrested at La grange, Tennessee, for violation of his parole, and released by Judge. Trigg under a writ ot nnoeas corpus. The Secretary of the Ireasury was rected to communicate as to salaries and fees collected under the steamboat laws, and whether any prosecution had been instituted against any person for lolatinn ot said laws. A bill was introduced declaring that the majority of votes actually cast shall de termine the result of any election under the reconstruction act Mr. Boutwell made a speech, con cluding as follows: Relieving Andrew Johnson guilty of high Crimea and mis- emeanors, I have assented to, and by rection of the majority of the Commit tee on Judiciary, reported a resolution for impeachmeuU In contemplation of law and npon facts I believe him so guilty, and thereon I ask a judgment In the Senate a resolution was adopted calling on the General of the Army for the number of registered voters in the South, and how many of each race have voted; also the number of persons dis franchised. A resolution authorizing the Secretary of the Treasury to issue coupons in ex change for, or in lieu of, any registered bonds. Passed second reading and re ferred to Finance Committee. Mr. Sumner's bill, giving, further security to the negroes in the District of Columbia, was debated at some length, and passed by a vote of thirty ta e ght. This is the bill that was pasted at the last session, but which the President never signed. ALLEN FRANKLIN. At the residence of the bride's father, on the 6th instant, by Rev. Mr. Ceperton. Sir. E.
