TRACING THE BOOKS.
Mr. F. N. Sholtz, formerly chief

Johnson, has returned from a visit to
Eniope and testifies before the Audi

the books removed from the office
were packed up and taken away by
direction of Mr. Johnson. The wit

movement to be actuated solely by a
desire to protect valuable public rec
ords fro11 the possible depredations
of a mob. Mr. Sholtz denies the tale
that he left for Europe either to screen
himtself or others, lie having no knowl
edge or suspicion of an intention to
destroy the missing books or withhold
theim froui the custody of the proper
oflicial after the settlement of the gov

A HANDSOME CORRECTION.
In the Carroll Conserratiie's issue
of July 2t appeared the following
paraglaph, referring to the anony
mnous tirade directed against us in
the first miumber of a local journal
The attorneys of Ascension are getting

paper, to the prejudice of the attorneys.
they think; and unless lie quits all such
idolittiy they, to all appearances, propose to
make their tmarks upon hint.
The manifest injustice of this com
ment, and the seeming ill- will which
prompted it, annoyed us considerably,
and it was only press of matter more
important to our readers which de
terred us from taking our Carroll
contemporary to task last week. Iu
his last issue, however, Ike makes
such a frank and haudsome correction
that criticism is disarmned and grati
tude takes it place. The Coiiserratire
Tle Donaldsont jile CHIEF has a lear',
iiaiily :ntd sensible reply to the letter of a
correspondent which appeared in the Triune
Dewowrau. Last week we made a playful
notice of the letter, but find by the reply
that the whole thing is begot inl any thing
but llay fuiliess; therefore, we think it right
and proper to say that Editor Bentley's
reply to- has the necessati V cool clear
lieadediess to carry coaviceion to the mind
of every one. And lie is " plague on " close
to right in what he has said.
The nature and status of a difficulty
between Messrs. E. L. Weber and
Felix Reynaud are quite clearly indi
cated by matter published elsewhere
in our paper at the instance of the
parties principal. We have not deemed
proper to mitke mention of this afiuir
pending its attempted settlement by
the method usually adopted in such
cases, nor do we think it necessary
now to give any further statement
than is afforded in the publications
above referred to. We will simpiy
remark that the present aspect of the
matter is, that Mr. Reynaud regards
the propositions 4r an amicable set
tlenient submitted by the seconds as
binding upon both principals, while
Mr. Weber and his friends repudiate
this view, and are seemingly sustained
in their position by the statement of
Mr. Reynaud's seconds. We trust the
affair will be .ldjusted amicably and
One of the few Conservative papers
in the State that oppose the prosecu

THE DEMAND FOR A CONSTITU
BY EMERSON BENTLEY.
The proposition to convene a con
stitutional convention is generally
discussed by the Democratic press
with warm approval. The fact that
the present constitution of Louisiana
was an offspring of the reconstruction
ergt is treated as self-evident condemn
nation of that instrument. There
seems to be little faith exhibited in
the probability of any thing good
having its origin during that odious
period, when the present "ins" were
out of power. There appears to be
more of partisan feeling, or destrue
tive motive, in the appeals for a con -
vention, than of clear judgment in
behalf of reforms required. This as
a general rile, of course has an ont'
sional exception, as examnpid by men
of ideas who sincerely labor to ii
porate theni into the organic la:.
Many opponents of the existing c *u
stitution are content with the riser
tioi that it is a " partisan document,
but fail to specify the distinct features
which deserve that classification, or
to attempt to enlighten the geieral
public as to the feasibility or in prac
ticability of the power of amendiuent.
These eininisaries of fart and argu
ment deprive the opposition of a prlt
tical force their efforts might other
It is undeniable, however, that the
demand for a convention has grown
to respectable proportions, and merits
earnest consideration. It is not im
proper to suggest the thorough Lead
ing of the State constitution, and its
comparison v ith like instruments of
other States, having in view the for
mation of intelligent opinion on the
coliing issue. Begin ni hg with the
next session of the Legislature it ity
be ended at the polls.
It is the prov iice of the people to
change their organic law for any rea
sons sal etioned by the tuajolity, in
conformity with the National consti
tution. A constitution, however.
ought not to be set aside for trivial
reasons, for stability is nccetsar-y to
ensue a familiarity with its provisions.
or a thorough administration of thun.
A convention too, is al Ixpenlsive
affair. It has neither nmore discretion,
nor the clearly defined limits of a
Legislature. It Will i be chosen by the
salme influences which create legi-la
atuors, and may sit indefiitely at the
public expense. This objection might
hold good at the present jimct ire,
when the cry comes iiji fromlu heavily
taxed and inisgovernied colmmi1nities
for relief, and when the revenues of
the State are strained to the utmost
toi meet its bonded obligations.
If the generosity of the salfeiing
tax payer is such that lie man con
sent to overlook the item of expenise.

more potent. It is the deiire of the
great mass of the people to rest I rina
the strife of the politicians, vi hich
they were promised should be real
ized after the inauguration of the
Nicholls government. For no. sane
man doubts that the convention btsi
ness means literally another elec

partisan discussion, the fteqouency of
which have proven to be Louisiana's
TIhere are grounds for suspicion of
this constitution movement. It is
founded, in the main, in the extreme
wing of I)emociacy, already chargid
with a lukewarm support of Governor
Nicholls. It may prove to be the
Trojan horse in the ianks of the lib
edal element. Caii atl one fix a limit

Let it le remembered that the set
ting aside of a State govein thent llay
accompany the verdict on the consti
tution, as was the case in 1bti3.
The Republican voters of Louisiana
will contend that the constitution of
18G6 was framed in a catholic spil it;
a majority of its provisions were
modeled from its predescessors atd
coitentmporaneots doctumetits ; a few
amend ments have been easily mane
as public interests demanded ; and
amendment is an effective revisory
method. The legislature may author
ize a vote on such pressing amend
ments as may be urged, and submit
them at a regular election. Great ex
pense, and perhaps politictd excite
mncut will be saved to the State, and
the planters profit by the quietude of
pestiferous politicians. Let the con
vention matter 1e postponed utttil
time has healed the grievous wounds
of both political parties of Loisiatia,
their prejudiies are less kecti. toil
when the judicial mind shall control
the framing of new orgtlnic la'.v.

as the renlezvous;.
The seconds on the first part aver regret
fully, that their principal was arrested
(against his will and desires) shortly after
his arrival in the city of New Orleans. Which
the said secoIds on the first part, declare on
their honor to be the truth; and said seconds
further declare and pronounce any thing
said to thiie contrary to be a imailieius anti
base falsehood: and further, that they he
noance tiie party who brought about the
arrest to be a pirt} to whom honor is but
an iinsignificant item.
T'he seconds on the second part also aver
that their principal was arrested as iie was
asienii~ng the steps of the train. (contrary
to his wishes anid desires); which the said

ther declare any thing said the contrary to
he a malicious and base falschood; and fur
ther. that the piarty who brought about the

a poor opinion of the "code of honor."
Inasmuch as the principals have been pre

raitu corn ntering each other. we, the said
