THIE U. LI.'SENATOU.
Our' previous articlees on the claims
of North Leoflslna to the United
States Senatorship have met with a
favor from the press of that section of
wbhih we own we are very proud.
The aoquleseence of such an influential
journal as the Advocate, of Baton
Rouge, we did not expect, but, having
obtained it, we are still more confirm
ed in. the soundness of our views and
thejatgess of our demands.
With other Journals, for which we
have great respect, we have not fared
so well, The Evening Post, of New e
Orleans, opened fire on our position on ,
the 28rd ultimo, and has kept it up
almost without intermission. It cen- I
sures, us. for drawing sectional lines, 1
and Ignorlng great eapacity because it
comem ftom New Orleans. We are not
aware of any such Intendment, and 1
cannot admit so much latitude in inter- I
pretation. Disputtants not unfrequent- a
ly draw upon their Imagination, in I
desperate efforts to bolster up a cause
without merit, or an argument without
t We know," says the Post, "that
there are to be found in the country
parishes excellent and talented gen
tlemen who would f11 acceptably the
position of U. 8. Senator." This is
well said, and it meets our hearty con
currence. What more onuld be requir
ed ? "But," continues the Post, "it
should be upon such claims as integrity,
intelligence and eqpeaence that they I
should be put forward for election, and I
not upon the only point that they come I
from the country, and hence are entl
tled to election." Why we should be a
raised up to be cut down so ruthlessly, t
we have not the astuteness to analyze.
But, a countryman will be at some c
loss to understand how an excellent
and talented gentleman can be without a
Integrity and intelligence. I
As to experience it comes to all alike I
-the story ofPallas Is a monstrous fable. I
Modern times have been denied the o
precocity of the example, and New
Orleans is not an exception. Ab initio
statesmen sounds too much like fiction
to obtain credulity without something
more than a paper declaration.
The same Journal claims that the
city has had no representation in the
Senate since 1861. The inference is,
that our country parishes are to be
saddled with Kellogg and West. If
there be either honor, or dishonor to
the section furnishing these Senators,
New Orleans is entitled to It all, since I
both of them claimed that city as their
home, and West as his birth-place.
And experience does not seem to be
so weighty a matter after all. Mr.
Eustis has served two years, and accep
tably to this people, but notwithstand
ing this advantage, Mr. Duncan F.
Kenner Is advanced at home and
abroad and pledged to be the peer of
any Senator from the beginning, and
why ? Because he could so ably rep
resent the sugar interests of the State.
That Is purely a sectional qualification.
But we do not find fault with it, be
cause it is a natural divisIon of the I
The gist of the argument on repre
sentation in the Senate in the Consti
tutional Convention was that two Son
ators from each State would secure
diversity.of talent and interest. The c
great agricultural products of our State
are cotton and sugar, and divide the
Statealmost on the line of controversy.
Any State could select both its Sena
tors from any city or town in it, with
out infringing upon tie Constitution,
we admit, but if any States do, except
Louisiana, our memory Is greatly at
But a short time ago Gov. Hampton
was urged as Patterson's successor.
ObJection was made, not that he would
come from the same city, but from the
sameDistrict of the State in which
Sebator Butler lives. We have yet to I
learn that anybody in Soath Carolina
has taunted the originator of the sug
gestion with the opproblum of draw
Ing sectional lines. If two Senators
were to be chosen by the people, can
it bedoubted for an instant that the
tcotton Interest and the sugar Interest
would not claim their rights ?
The poeiton we habe taken is lair,
and the only way diversity of talent
and Interest can be secured; it is com
mon sense; it Is the spirit, if not the
lettir, of the Constitution, and It is
bound to have its weight with men
who are above the foolish rivalry of
this or that city, town, or section.
The country parishes can furnish the
man lot the place; he can be found;
he li entitled to it, geographically,
inatellectually and morally, and we
call upon the delegates throughout the
State to give him their hearty and
united support. Who he is, or may
be, we have not undertaken to
say, or even indicate. That matter
we have studiously avoided, in order
that our course on. the main point
should not be subjected to even the
suspicion of a bias or prejudice based
upon personal considerations, and our
arguments to that extent weakened.
MONROE LAND OFFICE.
S New OaLEANs, December 9, 1878.
I read all your editorials with pleas
ure, and when I have time even spell
throughout your well-edited and good
Your article about the removal of the
I and Omfce, or rather its discontinu
ance, is correct. As you may know, I
re-organized the land department in
Louislana as Regleter of the Land Office
in New Orleans after the war, under
the appointment of Andrew Johnson,
and am able to speak on such matters.
The Homestead law was enacted for
the benefit of those who desired to till
the sell; to settle on the public domain
and by the ,"sweat of theIr brow" gain
their daily bread. It never was in
tended by the framers of that law that
a poor man-and only poor men need
homesteads--should either be com
I pelled to travel hundreds of miles
r away from his piece of land and ex
pend more in traveling expenses than
ten times the fees required by the act
for entry, or else to pay to an attorney
nearly the same amount to make up
his papers to be forwarded to the dis
tant land office.
A land offico should be established
in each district, where the bona J/de
homestead settler can go and pay his
fees, prove his actual settlement and
cultivation, and prove up the same
without costs additional to those men
tioned in the Homestead law.
Now that we have a legally elected
delegation to Congress from this State
we can call mppon them to prevent the
wrong to your good, chivalrous and
law-abiding people as is proposed by
the notice that this man Williamson
has published. There is something
under this, because I see that a new
Receiver has been appointed.
This note is hurriedly written, but
as your commentary on this matter is
not only judicious but well-timed, I
feel that it Is my duty to express my
approval of your views.
Very truly yours, J. S. Tirr.r.
THE RADICAL IHOWL.
Senator Blaino has Introduced a res
olution in the Senate of the United
States, of which the following Is a copy:
Resolved, TIhat the Judiciary Com
mittee be instructed to inquire and re
port to the Senate whether at the re
cent elections the constitutional rights
of American citizens were violated in
any of the States of the Union ; whether
the right of suffrage of citizens of the
United States, or of any class of such
citizens, was denied or abridged by
the action of election officers of any
State in refusing to receive their votes,
in failing to count them, or in receiv
ing or counting fraudulent ballots in
pursuance of a conspiracy to make the
lawful votes ofsuch citizens of no effect,
and whether such citizens were pre
vented from exercising the elective
franchise, or forced to use it against
their wishes by violence or threats, or
hostile demonstrations of armed men
or other organizations, or by any other
unlawful means or practice.
Resolved, That the Judiciary Com
mittee be further instructed to inquire
and report whether it is within the
competency of Congress to provide, by
additional legislation, for a more per
fect security of the right of suffrage to
citizens of the United States in all the
States of the Union.
Resolved, That In prosecuting theso
inquiries the Judiciary Committee
shall have the right to send for persons
There is a question that frequently
comes up for discusasion among citizens
of Lafourche, that is assuming such
proportions that it cannot be ignored
much longer with safety. That ques
tion is the incurable and horrible one
of leprosy. Some twenty years ago, as
our information runs, a person attacked
'with this disease settled on the lower
portion of Bayou Lafourche, which has
spread among the people until now
there are thought to be very nearly if
not fifty lepers in Lafourche.
This horrible disease has been one of
the pests that have afflicted mankind
from time immemorial, but which has
, never been prevalent enough in any
Sone portion of the United States to ex
cite any serious apprehensions. But at
' this moment it is beginning to become
e a seriouns matter to the residents in this
a part of the State.
Our Representatives to the Legisla
ture should bring this question up
before that body at its next session in
order to have an investigation, and if
s found necessary for future safety, to
inaugurate proper steps to eradicate 0
that disease entirely from the parish t
and the State. There was said to be
one case In this town, but the yellow a
fever has efbetually banished that from
our presence.-Thibodeaux entinel.

lI SUN FOR 1879.
The San will be printed everyday during
the year to come. Its purpose and method
will be the same as in the past: to present
all the news in a readable shape, and to tell
the truth though the heavens all.
The Sun has been, is, and will continue
to be independent of everybody and every
thing save the Truth and its own convie
tlons of duty. That is the only policy
which an honest newspaper need have.
That is the policy which has won for this
newspaper the confidence and friendship
of a wider constituency than was ever en
joy.eds by any other American journal.
The un is the newspaper for the people.
It is not for the rich man against the poor
man, or for the poor man against the rich
man, but it seeks to do equal Justice to all
interests in the community. It is not the
organ of any person, class, sector party.
Tere ned be no mystery about its loves
and hates. It is for the honest man against
the rogues every time. It is for the honest
Democrat as against the dishonest Republi
can, and ior the honest Repnblican as
against the dishonest Democrat. It does
not take its cue from the utterances of any
politician or political organization. It gives
its support unreservedly when men or
measures are in agreement with the Con
stitution and with the principles upon
which this Republic was founded for the
people. Whenever the Constitution and
constitutional principles are violated-as in
the outrageous conspiracy of 1870, by which
a man not elected was placed in the Presi
dent's ofice, where he still remains-it
speaks out for the right. That isThe Sun's
ides of independence. In this respect there
will be no change in its programme for
The Sun has fairly earned the hearty
hatred of rascals, frauds, and humbugs of
all sorts and sizes. It hopes to deserve that
hatred not less in the year 1879, than in
1878, 1877, or any year gone by. The Sun
will continue to shine on the wicked with
While the lessons of the past should be
constantly kept before the people The
Sun does not propose to make itself in 1879
a magazine of ancient history. It is printed
for the men and woman ofto-day, whose
concern is chiefly with the affairs of to-day.
It has both the disposition and the ability
to afford its readers the promptest, fullest
and most accurate intelligence of whatever
in the wide word is worth attention. To
this end the resources belonging to well
established prosperity will be lberally em
The present disjointed condition of par
ties in this country, and the uncertainty
of the future, lend an extraordinary signi
ficance to the events of the coming year.
The discussions of the rress, the debates
and acts of Congress, and the movements
of the leaders in every section of the Re
public will have a direct bearing on the
Presldential election of 1880- an event
which must be regarded with the most
anxious interest by every patriotic Ameri
can, whatever his political ideas or allegi
ance. To these elements of interest may
be added the probability that the Demo
crats will control both houses of Congress,
the increasing feebleness of the fraudulent
administration, and the spread and
strengthening everywhere of a healthy
abhorence of fraud in any fornm. To
present with accuracy and clearness the
exact situation in each of its varying
phases, and to expound, according to its
well-known methods, the principles that
should guide us through the labyrinth,
will be an important part of The Sun's
work for 1879.
We have the means of making The Sun,
as a political, a literary and a general news
paper, more entertaining and more useful
