Th Com ni it tee on Commerce was instructed to inquire into the caus of depi-erslon in ;th shipping interest.

In the Louisiana Convention a resolution to organise a civil government was laid over, and another making th Constitution of 1864 th ba is of th proposed Constitution, referred.

Dis pitches from all parts of Ireland give acoounts of th exhibition of popular sympathy for Allen and company. In a number of towns and eitlos there have been funeral processions, in which tors: multitudes, wearing national emblems pertHr-atcd. Ita? The case of process for contempt issued by Judge Hunter of the criminal court against Messrs. Galloway, Rhea & Cluskey was heard yesterday in argu ment by Messrs. Ed. Yerger and E. A. Becher for tbe defendants. The argu ment of Mr. Beecher wat a clear and forcible presentation of legal proposi tions and that of Mr. Yerger, an able, eloquent and exhaustive demonstration. We do not Bee how the case can be de cided otherwise than favorably to the accused. It is a delicate matter at best for a judge to decide an issue in which be has a personal interest and in which he will necessarily be suspected of a de gree of prejudice difficult for men of the utmost self command to overcome. A judge d high character will, in such circumstances, be careful that he acts in accordance with clear and indisputable and not doubtful law ; for he will rather let his own injuries go unavenged than incur the suspicion of using hit office for" the redress of mere private griev ances. And this seems to ut clearly a case in which a mere personal indignity has been offered to en individual, but no offense coming within the purview and meaning of the law, hasbeen committed. The court, as such, has in no wise been treated with contempt, and the course of justice bat not been clogged or impeded. The constitution of the State pro vides that "Tbe printing presses shall be free to every person who undertakes to examine the proceedings of the Legis lature, or of any branch or officer of Government; and no law shall ever be made to restrain the right thereof." The Avalanche has examined the proceed ings of an officer of the Government, to-wit: Judge Iluiiter. How are its publishers to be held responsible when the Constitution forbids ? Judges are not, like Congress, greater than the Constitution, and to keep their oaths, they must obey its mandates, mod the in ferior judges are bound by the decisions of tbe higher courts. The Avalanche baa committed no contempt in the presence of the Court, and has not ob structed the administration of justice It has simply made a publication which the law guarantees the right to do, sub ject only to indictment for libel or action for damages, if any untruthful publication bat been made. There it no authority fur treating this as coming within the definition of a contempt of conrt; and it it not "any other act or omission declared by law to be con tempt" No clause of any statute can be named by any member of the Mem phis bar which declarei a publication of this tort to be a contempt, and no au thority of the common law since the revolution, or decisions of the American courts, can bo found fur it And if such authi,;:j could be found, it would be subversive of '.he spirit and principles of Repub'ican institutions. It would endanger liberty to require the sentinels on ill watchtowert to speak in constant fear of punishment at the will, and by a law concealed in the breast of any tingle man. Our fathers would not give it to Washington or Marshall, and they would not now give it to Browolow or Ilunter. When the press warns against a juMic danger and denounces crine and summon all good nee to the rescue attaints ccmiog mischiefs, it it doing what may be a great public good, which, tbertfure, nseritt cnccurtgenient W.

Without this, crime miut never be exposed, and corrupt judges never could be punished, That Judne Ilunter, whatever may be his private and personal feeling, will too much respect the law and the dignity of hit official position to sustain a construe tion and policy so pernicious as this, we 'II . a ' 1 .. y ftmr-if It .... nit l.A rlnnA ifftt ill .

Jadge Hun- ter hat doubtless acted hastily under a sense of injury porsonal to himself. But upon reflection, and the irresistible force of demonstrative argument by counsel, we trust he will find himself able to eay to-day, with the great Marshall, that he wat wrong on yesterday; and that, in pronouncing the law, he will liiroself honor, instead of bringing into contempt bit own office, by ehowing that bit judg- ment at a judiciul officer it incapable of rising above the personal feelings and passions of the man. , ItaTA meeting was held at Little Rock on the 2d inst, for the purpose of co-operating with the Democratic party of the Union in the effort to save the country from negro supremacy in any of the Statea of the Union. The following resolution wat adopted and tbe commit tee appointed : n I J T, . 4l. .Knot.,! committee of five members to present to I a future meeting tome plan for the or- I iicautvcu,. 1 IIBt IUV i.

The meeting of citizens having been I adjourned to tho 8th, egain assembled on that day and received the Committee's I report - A State Central Committee of I nine was appointed, and instructed to urge county meetings, clubs, associa-1 tions and committees, and providing for tbe reception and circulation of informa tion, newspapers, etc., among the people. The assemblage then resolved itself into a permanent county convention, having first adopted the following additional resolution: Resolved. That this meeting recom mend to the Central Committee the con sideration of the propriety of requesting county conventions to select at once delegates to the general convention to be convened at Little Rock on such a day as the committee may designate as soon as may be after the adjournment of tbe Constitutional Convention. ISjr The majority of the Northern Republicans would now gladly shake off the negro incubus to which they have been bound by their more extreme leaders, hut it has become impossible, and they are fated. They are so com- mitted to extremes that they have not a popular issue, either on the great cur rency question, or on their own long- cherished hobbies. Their antagonism to Johnson, and their antipathy to the the South, have driven the leaders to positions from which it is impossible to retreat. They have been eminently sue- cessful in embittering, by heaping wrongs on the Southern people. And , they have been equally so in creating disgust and antagonism among their own people at home. Tbe Northern people have just declared emphatically against negro suffrage, and yet they are compelled, for consistency's take, to I endeavor to establish that suffrage by an amendment of the Constitution, which . ' they have just proposed. They are crossing tbe stream, and cannot swap horses. The party is now doomed, and ., i ., t. the more moderate of Us members are beginning to stand from under. We oubt whether they will be able to make I nother enactment. They are only to be feared from their desperation in the throes of death. Latest from Washington. Srecial to the Louisville Courier.
