CONFAB OF TfHE CUSTOM
A NOISY, INHARMONIOUS CREW.
Their "Convention " a Failure.
In compliance with the edict of the
delectable body of worthies known as
the Custom-House- State Executive
Committee, there assembled at the
National Theatre, New Orleans, last
Tuesday noon, one of the most motley
and disorderly crowds of human be
ings it has ever been the lot of this
editor to gaze upon. To be sure there
were some honorable and notable ex
ceptions to the general rule of rattle
headed and noisy delegates, bet these
were few and far between, and at
tracted little notice among the uni
versal hubbub and racket that pre
vailed during the sessions of the body
which is best known by the title of
Custom-Hounse Convention. While
there is some endeavor being made
among the leading spirits to bring the
noisy lesser lights whose presence
they have invoked down to a point of
quietude and ohler that will permit of
a temporary organization of the Con
vention, let us look around the ball or
theatre and see what is to be seen.
At the back of the stage is tacked up
a large bed sheet upon which is
printed an extract from the well
known letter signed by the late la
mented Oscar J. Dunn, addressed to
HIorace Grecley, and of which Geco. WV.
Carter is pointed out by popular be
lief to be the author. The extiart is
denunciatory of Gov. Warmoth, ac
cusing him of alliance with ])emoc
racy, and declaring that the Itepub
licans of Louisiana would never sup
port him. As we gaze upon it and
our thoughts revert back to the early
days of the present year when the
men who had pretended friendship to
Gov. D)unn and allegiaince to the
party whose principles he upheld
were in infamous league with the
l)cmuocrats endeavoring to accomplish
the overthrow of Republican govern
mnlet in Louisiana, we almost wonder
that the spirit of the dead Hlan does
not appear to rcbuke the assembledi
renegades who are using his name and
memoryto forward their own selfish
ends and destroy the very party to
which he was so warmly attached.
Suspended above the footlights of the
stage is another sheet of smaller di
mensions, upon which is displayed an
accredited utterance of the dead Lieut.
Governor: " Tell the, boys to hohl
together," Aye ! he told them to hold
together, yet here are some of them
under the very shade of his memory
doing all in their power to disunite
the colored people (" the boys a ), and
with his advice blazoned before their
eyes that will not see, their ears that
will not hear. Unfathomable the
understanding which pretends to find
justitication of evil in the very
warning uttered against it! To the
left of the hall, suspended over the
gallery, is another large piece of cot
ton domestic which improperly gives
President Grant the credit of paying
off the national debt so rapidly, and
opposite this still another which more
improperly charges Governor War
moth with the large increase of the
Louisiana State debt. There are men
in the midst of the noisy and turbulent
crowd assembled under these floating
sheets who are members of the Legis
lature and who have voted to pass
over thle veto of Governor Warlnotlh
the very swindling measures that
have contributed most to increase the
burden of State debt and taxation.
Does the flush of shame mantle their
faces as they gaze upon the libelous
ennouncement which lays their crime
at the door of an innocent nan ? In
other parts of the hall are other strips
ofdomestic of lesser note, with in
scriptions as inappropriate as those
already quoted, while over the gallery
hang flags of ditfferent nations con
veniently borrowed from the Custom
Aftef a considerable lapse of time,
and when the members of the Custom
ouase brass band have become i
broken-wiuded from endeavoring to
smake their rmusic heard over the din
mnd hum of many excited voices, com
arative quiet is at last obtaihted and
' F. Ladd, a colored delegate fromn
ne of the wards of New Orleans, is
lected temporary .president by a
eafeiting bowl, according to the cut
.nd-dried programme previously ar
anged, Amid the greatest confusion
fdiscordant sounds a Committee oa
redentials is appointed and retires to
repare a report. A motion to ad
)urn for a recess of one hour raises }
terrible hubbub but is finally de- r
lared to be adopted, when several of I
me more staid and quiet memnbers f
itsh out of the hall to escape the bed- f
m of racket and ascertain ifrtheir t
rs anl yet susceptible of hearing the a
common sounds of the open air.
The hour of recess lliving expired
the crowd is again called to order, or
disorder, rather. The Committee on
Credentials is not quite ready to re
port, so several of the prominent men
of the cab:l are called upon to speak.
Everything is somewhat lovely until
Dr. Worrall, of the Mitraillcuse, is
called to the platform, when objection
decided and vehement is made to him
by a not over-sober member, which
results in a fight and the ejection of
said member. However, the motion
requesting the acrobatic Doctor to
speak is rescinded, and that worthy
retires as gracefully as could be ex
pected under the embarrassing cir
cumustances. The Committee now re
port, their report is adopted, and per
manent organization declared to be
next in order. The inebriated menm
her just spoken of returns and an
nmounces his readiness for a mortal
combat with one of the delegates
from East 1Feliciania, but is subdued,
and permanent organization is eflected
by the election of Hon. C. C. Antoine
president and E. 3. 'Tweed secretary.
(It is a matter of justice to " Boss"
Tweed, of New York, to say that this
gentleman is no relation of his.)
After some fifty members had en
deavored to get the floor and some
thing less than a thousand points of
order had been made which had no
point to them, a resolution was edged
before the house some way, calling for
the appointment of a conmuittee to
confer with the State Committee of
which Lieut. Governor Pinchback is
president, upon some means of uniting
the discordant elements of the party.
Pending noisy and bewildering mde
bate upon this resolution, the Con
vention was declared adjourned until
eight o'clock in the evening, in ac
cordance with a resolution adopted to
In point of noise and confusion the
evening session was not behind its
predeces.or. T'he only business

''This < nie with, debate upon the
resolution calling for a committee on
harmonization communenced and was
kept up till the hour of adjournment,
To describe in detail the proceedings
of Wednesday's session would be but
to give a repetition of what we have
said of the first as regards prevailing
hubbub and confusion, heuce we
shall only notice the actual business
done. A report from the Committee
on Resolutions was received and
adopted, embracing resolutions of in
dorsement of Presideltt Grant and his
administrition, deunciation of Gov.
\Varmoth, suplport of tho Chicago
platform of ld68, and others of minor
import. An elcection of four delegates
from the State at large to the Phila
delphia Convention was entered into,
and resulted in the choice of Colonel
James Lewis, Lou.is Treager, John Ivay
arn E. C. Billings, with G. Casenave,
W. F. Southard, P. B. S. Pinchback
and I. .Jonhlert as alternates. An at
tempt was made by Packard and a
few of his henchmen to exclude the
name of Mr. Pinchback, but it met
with the almost unanimous disap
proval of the Convention. This was
considered a defeat of the doughty
marshal, and still another one was
the adoption of a resolution to hold
the next Convention at Baton Rouge.
'o his immense chagrin, Marshal
'ackard found elements in his own
'lonvention he could not control. A
notion to appoint a committee to wait
1pon Lieut. Gov. Pi' chback and re
unest hini to conic blfore this Conven
ion and give his views upon the best
node of uniting the party was adopt
ýd. Dr. M. F. Bonzano and Samuel
'eters were unanimously elected
'residential }Elcotors for the State at
argci and the crowd dispersed until
ight o'clock in the evening.
The all-absorbing and important
nature of the evening session of
Iednesday was the presence aInd ad
ress of Lieut. Gov. Pimchback, both
wf hich were hailed with the wild
t enthusilasm yet exhibited by the
abitually noisy assemblage. The
iere unostentatious advent of this
stinguished gentleman upon the
:or of the Convention was the signal
r" an outburst of applause that shook
1e building. Governor Pinchback'a
:ldreas was cahu and sensibl.. and
listened to with wrapt attention. He
urged the necessity of harmonization,
and pointed out the proper way in
his opinion to accomplish it to be the
appointment by this Convention of a
special committee to confer with a
like committee to be elected by the
Republican State Convention that
will be held on the 28th inst., the two
committees to agree upon some honor
able plan acceptable to both parties.
This was the only plan the speaker
could propose to settle the differences
among the Republicans of the State,
and his views seemed participated in
by a large majority of the members
of the Convention. However, after
Mr. Pinchback had retired, and an
efflrt was made to carry the plan into
executionnup rose Marshal Packard and
a little horde of his satellites, who, see
ing in such reconciliation the probable
defeat of their own personal ambitious
ends, so confused the minds of the
not very brilliant majority of colored
members with glittering generalities
and nice points of parliamentary
usage, and final:ly appearing but thin
and senseless logic, that the measure
was defeated and the whole matter
left to the State Central Committee of
which Packard is president. This was
the first victory achieved by Marshal
Packard during the session of his con
vention, and it probably sounded the
death knell of all hopes of reconcilia
tion in the ranks of the distracted and
divided Republican party of Louisi
ana. Let it be placed as another item
in the long list of damnable offences
commited to the detriment of Repub
licanism which is tallied up against
him and his clique of ambitious office
seekers. After adopting several unim
portant resolutions, among which was
one denouncing Superintendent of
Education Conway for his manage
ment of the Educational Department
of the State Goverunment, the Custom
house cabal adjourned sine die. With
out exaggeration, this gathering was
the noisiest, most inharmonious and
of less respectable or intelligent conl
pornent parts than any of likepurpose
or kind that has assembled in Louisi
ana since the war. In short, as a
convention intended to represent the
intelligence and integrity of the Re
pmblican party of the State it was a

Latest advices from Cincinnati re

lican Convention, by the election of
Ihon. Carl Schurz as president. The
attendance of delegates is fully as
Inrge as the most hopeful supporters
of the movement had anticipated, and
enthusiasm among them is unbounded.
The greatest unity and harmony of
purpose prevails, and everything in
dicates a triumphant success of the
Liberal cause and the election of its
candidate next November. Who that
candidate will be is yet to transpire.
The nomination, if not made yester

The Sixth Annual State Fair of the
Mechanics' and Agricultural Fair As
sociation which closed in New Orleans
last Tuesday was not such a grand
success as it should have been, albeit
not by any means a failure. It seems
that of late years the public interest
in these industrial exhibitions has
been on the wane, and we are sorry to
note it, for they are in many ways
calculated to improve the advance
ment of our country, especially as re
gards her agricultural interests, and
ought to be patronized and oncouraged
by all good citizens who are in a posi
tion to accord them aid in the largest
or slightest degree.

with the Pelican State, but at the
prospect of parting with their dinners

will never be forgotten by his fellow
passengers. Of the rest, they were
fromt Maine to Texas, from Ireland to

Republican State Convention,
Address of the State Central Oommittee.
STATE CENTRIL COMMITTEE,
Republican Party of Louisiana,
New Orleans, March 18, 1872.
To the Republicans of the State of Louisiana:
The Republican State Central Committee
having, in the discharge of the duties im
posed upon it by the last State Convention,
arrived at the regular period which has been
set apart by the usages of the party for its
State Conventions, and having authorised
its President to issue the usual call, therefore
deem the occasion suitable to address these
brief remarks upon the political situation to
their fellow Republicans. The quadrennial
election for a President of United States oc
curs this ear. The election of this high of
ficer of the republic, whose character and
political views are so important, especially
to the Republicans of the South, and whose
selection almost decides our political fate for
the next four years, and perhaps the whole
future, makes this election one of the deepest
and most vital interest to all our people. We
feel that we speak their unanimous sentiment
when we invite them to respond to the call
of the National Republican Committee, and
adviie them to send our best reIpresentative
men to the Philadelphia Convention, to help
in selecting a tried, true and unflinching
Republican to be our next President. Our
State election is also of the .greatest impor
tance. We have to elect a (overnor, Lieu
tenant Governor, Secretary of State, Auditor
of Public Accounts, Superintendent of Public
Education, Attorney General, a new Assem
bly, and Representatives in Congress. In
tact, this election is to determine a question
still more important to us than who shall be
the next President. It is to determine for
the next four years whether the State gov
ernmuent shall be Republican or Democratic;
in favor of equal rights, or against them; in
favor of progress, education and improve.
ment, for all people, black as well as white,
or in favor only of white progress, education
and improvement, and opposed to equal ad
vantages for the black people; whether we
shall retain all that we have won and go for
ward, or whether we shall lose all and go
back to where we were at the close of the
We wish you to distinctly understand
the fact that all parties oplposed to the 1Re
publicani party, whethey under the anme of
Democrats, Reformers, People's party, or any
other title whatever, are simply the old Dem
ocratic party under a now name, and have
for their object but one thing, that is to throw
the State government out of the control of
the Republican party and into the hands of
their enemies. Our people will also see that
to defeat the strong and determined efforts
of the enemy to again get control of the State,
one thing is the great essential, that all Re
publicans shall he UNITED AND WORK TO*
GETHEN. If we do this, victory is certain.
To this end, we cordially invite all true and
earnest Republicans, without regard to past
differences, to unite in this convention and
to nominate such a ticket and adopt such a
platform as will command the respect and
support of the whole people.
All good Repuilicans also desire that our
party shall, as we are assured it will, declare
itself decidedly, distinctly and definitely in
favor of retreneicment, reform, reduction of
taxes and the removal of all unnecessary
burdens on commerce and trade, and in
fiavor of equal and just legislation for all in
terests and all classes of persons.
