THE DEBT QUESTION. Remarks of Colonel Robert IH. Todd, of Morelouse. In the Constitutional Convention, Col. Todd, delegate from the 22d Dis trict, made a speech favoring the ma jority report on the State debt. The Times furnishes us with the following synopsls of the Colonel's remarks: Mr. Todd, of &Morehouse, opened the debate, supporting the views of the majority. He had given the subject, he said, almost painful consideration. He was anxious that justice should be meted out to the creditors of the State, as well as to the State itself. Discussing the question of the power of the convention to pass upon tie question, he said that he differed in tote from the idea expressed by the gentleman from Et.Mary (Mr. Caffrey). He considered this body fully compe tent to pass upon the question. The convention was a body similar to the British Parliament, and held the same powers to some extent. The speaker quoted from Cooley on Limitations. The actions of the convention were t subject only to the laws and constitu. tion of the United States. The con vention was a supreme power compe tent to pass upon the acts of the legis lature and the decisions of the courts, and he hoped the convention was about to exercise that power. lie had shrunk from interfering with the debt, and would have pre ferred an amicable adjustment, but it was presented to the convention now in a iight which made an examination Imperative. The people desired relief and they were entitled to it, and delegates bad been sent hero to carry out their plans; there should be no shrinking in the task. Governments were organized for the benefit of the people to be gov erned ; taxation was a contribution to support the government, though the legislative power to enforce the rate should be limited, and this could not be done unless the debt was first adopt. ed. The question presented for con. sideration was both a legal and political one, and the power of the convention to pass upon it was ample. The speaker, quoting from the con stitution of 1852, read the sections re quiring an adequate provision to be made for the payment of bonds in the act authorizing their issue. In the issue of the railroad bonds which were put out about that time, these require ments had been totally disregarded, the only provision being the pledge of the stock of an experimental road. In issuing the "redemption bonds" the same legislature had considered the article, and made the necessary pro vision by levying a special tax. Referring to the issue of the levee bonds, the speaker said that the securi ty in this instance was a pledge of swamp lands which no one would have taken as a gift; which were valueless and valueless now. He denied that their legality had ever been passed up on by the courts; the direct issue had never been made. He believed that the funding act was passed with selfish interest, that its acts were not valid, and that there was no estoppal of appeal from its acts and decisions. He considered theboard merely a board of experts without ju dicial power, and liable to certain pen alties for a violation of the act under which it was created. The speaker quoted at length from the testimony taken before the com m~ittee appointed to investigate the acts of the funding board. ''he history of the board'S career was one of scoun drolism without parallel, and yet gen tlemeh no this floor had said that they must be recognized as valid. Sir, must this convention legitimize the acts of these scoundrels? [Applause.] He did not believe that these consti tutional amendments had been adopted by the people. The election returns had been manipulated by the return ing board. When he came to this con vention he had hoped that the ante bellum debt might be retained, but he was disposed to wipe out every debt created after the adoption of the con stitution of 1868, and the usurpation of the State. Was there any lawyer on this floor who would contend that the recon struction acts of Congress wore any thing but null and void? Could it be contended that we, the people of Louis iana, were to be held responsible for the acts of a government foisted upon us by Federal bayonets and without the agency of the people? Better had it been for the people had they been decimated after having been conquered than to have been turned over to adventurers from other States, and to a race newly enfranchlisedo, and who had julst experienced a sudden transition from the ignorance of slavery. To sanction the acts of these govern ments the people had to pa-s over the enormities of the reconstruction acts. In supyiort of their belief that tile people of this State were bound to ac knowledge the debtcs of the Wnarmoth and Kellogg governments, gentlemen had quoted the historical instances of the acknowledgement of the debt cre atedl by the Cromwell government by the people of Englandr, of the debt cre ated by the BIourbons by the people of France. True, but these governmenlts were indisputably supplorted by popu lar choice. Could anyoltc say that the Warmoth and Kellogg admlnistrations were supported bIy the people? No, sit ! He was in favor of repudiation; yes, of repudiation to thisextent-a re pudiation of all the obligations of those r infernal administ ations. I No one could ever forget the deeds ! of these usurping administrations. No 8 one could ever pass them over. The t remembrance .f the uprising of Sop- c tember 14, 1874, was too strong, and a the memories of its heroes too deeply a cherished. [Applause.] Ii TIE NEW BISIHOP OF MICHIGAtN. (Now Orloaua Picayune.] t1 The intelligence of the selection of h Rev. Dr. Sam'I Harris to fill the vacant ft bishopric of Michigan, was received in this city with sentiments of pride and n pleasure on the part of the members of Ii his former congregation and the large v circle of his friends and admirers. As b the rector of TrinityChureb,Dr. Harris o gained for himself the affectionate re- ii gard and profound respect of the meom te bers of his church and the Episcopal at clergy. Possessing those qualities of v mind and heart which adorn and ii dignify the profession of the ministry, a the career or this now eminent divine 1l has been a continued progress toward r the realirzation of the lofty ideals of the evangelical mission. n Born in Alabama nearly forty years 1 ago, Mr. Harrisgraduated from college el with high honors when still very b young. He studIed law, and was ad- C mitted to the bar in 1860. Endowed p with abilities of no common order, a thoroughly educated, and eloquent in o speech, he was well fitted for success n in the sphere he had selected. During I the war Mr. Harris did his devoir, and 3 served with credit in the Confederate e ranks. ti After the cessation of hostilities he roe- b moved to New York, practiced law, n and subsequently studied theology un- c der Bishop Potter, commencing his Is duties In the pulpit. From the rector- tl ate of Trinity Church In this city he a was called to St. James Church, Chica- I t go, where he presently became as o much beloved by his new as by his old I congregation. As Earnestness and zeal, enthusiastic de- h votion to duty, and moral force of char- a acter, have marked Dr. Harris's career, t whether as advocate, soldier, or preach- I er, and his selection by the clergy of s Michigan as their eeclesiastlec head con- t fers honor both on the Diocese and the I Diocesan. THE QUININE SWINDLE. t The Medical and Surgical Reporter, published at Philadelphia, the head quarters of the quinine monopolists, says: The fortune of the late Thomas H. Powers is estimated between five mil lion and ton million dollars. Very much of this was made on quinine, and the movement to repeal the duty on that drug is one which should meet I the approval of all unbiased physl clans. At present the sick are obliged to pay more than twiceas much for this medicine as they would were the duty removed. The excess goes into the pockets of the already enormously rich manufacturers. In fact, it is encour aging a monopoly of the most unfair description. The story told by the correspondents about Mr. Thurman finding but one b Senator present on Friday morning, a and opening the session of that body by saying, "The Senator from Georgia j will please come to order," is paralleled t by an incident related of Dean Swift. a While the Dean was officiating in an b Irish parish, he entered his church one I morning at the usual time for service I and found not a soul present but the t parish clerk. He waited awhile, and a then commenced : "Dearly beloved f (naming the clerk), the scripture mov- t eth you and me in sundry places," etc. a Josh Billings says: If anybody has 1 hard work to please most people, it is c an editor. If he omits anything, he is 1 lazy. If he speaks of things as they ii are, people get angry. If he glosses I over or smooths down the rough e points, he is bribed. If he calls things t by their proper names, lie is declared i unfit for his position. If he does not b furnish his readers with jokes, he is a v mullet. If he does, he is a rattle-head, I lacking stability. If he indulges in f personalities, li he is a blackguard. If he does not, his paper is dull and insipid. I The eruption of Mount Etna contin ucs. A considerable part of the bed of the Aleantara river is covered by the lava. The destruction of property is immense. The Commune of Majo has been obliterated, and Cassello is threat encd. Many large and valuable estates have been destroyed. Thu four main craters continue to pour forth streams of lava, while many of the smaller ones have become Inactive. The stream of lava which has interruptol the rgead at l'assa Pescaro is half a muile wtde and one hundred feet deep. An Jrishman, at the imnmediat9risk Sof his life, stopped a runaway horSe a - few days ago. Thie owner came up f after awhiie, and quietly remarked: , "Thank you,sir." ,An' faith, an' how are ye g,ilt' to divilel thlIt IhtWa'n two Sof us?" reiplited Pat. LAAR vS. COIKLINIO. I [Chicago Ti'ss.] f Mr. Conkling in the opening of his i remarks had alluded to the fact that he had yielded time during the earl 'part of the day to an appeal of the I Senator from Mississippi (Mr. Lama) I to allow the Mississippi levee bill to I come up. That had taken time, anil I several Senators on the Democrat I side had nodded when he (Oonkln.)I had suggested that more time wouels be necessary for the army bill. HI thought the attempt now to cut off I debate an evidence of bad faith. I When Mr. Conkling had finished 4 there was a scene, the like of whlih I has not been witnessed in the Senate I for years. Mr. Lamar arose, and said he was S not aware of any such understanding. t He stood in the front row and his I voice trembled while he handled the back of a chair nervously. He did not l often deal in personalities, he said, but I if theSenator from New York intended a to impute any bad faith to him per. aI sonally, he pronounced it a falsehood, iL which he repelled with all the unmit- lt igatod contempt that he felt for the a author of it. As he said this, Lamar ti shook his fist savagely, and stopping ti forward pointed directly atOonkling. S Mr. Conkling was on his feet in a C moment and his voice trembled, butlI Mr. Lamar appeared to be more ex- C cited than he did. He tried to speak, h but Mr. Lamar Interrupted him. Mr. C Conkling did not notice him. Lamar a persisted, but Conkling had his place a and looked straight at the presiding d officer. The latter finally rapped La. I mar into his seat. "Whether I am willing to respond to the member fromn t Mississippi," said Conkling, "depends r entirely upon what that member in- s tends to say and did say. For the time I being I do not intend to hold any comn- s munleation with him." The Senate chamber was silent. After a pause ( Mr. Conkling continued: "I have only t this to say : this not being the place to .[ measure with one man the capacity I to violate decency, to violate the rules I of the Senate or to commit any of the t improprieties of life, I have only to I say that if the Senator (eorrecting a himself) - the member from Misels- e slppi did impute, or intend to Impute, C to me a falsehood, nothing except the fact that this is the Senate would pr vent me from denouncing him as a blackguard and a coward. [Appliase'1 in the gallery.] Lot me be more ex plicit, Mr. President. Should the I member from Mississippi, except in the presence of the Senate, charge mnie by implication or otherwise, with a talsehood, I would denounce him as a blackguard, a coward and a liar, and understanding what he said, as I do, the rules of the Senate are the only re straint upon me. I don't think I need say anything more, Mr. President." Mr. Lamar arose and said : "I have only to say that the Senator from New York understood ine correctly. I beg the pardon of the Senate for the un parliamentary language. It was very severe. It was such as no good man would deserve and no brave man would wear." This ended the scene, and the f11l1 busterlig went on. JOHN sHERMAN AND THE IDECLINE OF TIlE GRANT "BOOM." v [ShrovoporL Standard.J . It must be evident to all that there has been, within the last few weeks, C a perceptible subsidence of the Grant "boom." It requires all the puffing and blowing, yelling and whooping, of all the Grant organs, big and little, and of all the Grant statesmen, white and black, to keep its head above water. The nearer the time approaches for the C Radical hero to make that landing on the Pacific coast, which the Grantltes affect to believe will be memorable in future history, the more rapidly does C the Grant boom subside. A few weeks ago the whole Rtadical world was to go to the Pacific, meet the advancing hero with palm trees in their hands, crown his brow with oak leaves, strew flowers in his pathway, and lead him In triumph across the continent, pro- I paratory to a still more triumphant entry into the White House for the third teram on the 4th day of March, 1881. But now, alas, a roll call falls to bring together the patriots who are willing to make the Journey to the Pacific at their own expense, to per form the appointed acts of Radical obeisance and keep the boom up until it shall' have landed its hero in the Presidential chair. And the reason is plain. These men do not exactly see how they are to get their money back. And the fict that they cannot see this demonstrates that the Grant "boom" is about "played out." And the cause of this, too, will be foundi in the fact that while General Grant was exhibiting hiramseIf to for eign courts and potentates in diPlerent parts of the world another formidable candidate for presidential honors was quietly but surely alpropriating to himself thie strength on whichi he mainly relied to secure the nomination beforo the IRepublican National Con vention. That candidlate is Geonoral SGrant's ilearly belovcl friend, the pink a of his 'visiting statemen," Mr. John SSherman, of Ohio, Secretary of the STreasury of the Unithei States. It h:ts never been contencki that I I' ,Gnortl (iranit Ihms any ',trengtlm in tlh, Silt.be whtehl are certain to vote for the Republican candidate in the Electoral Oellege-in Vermont, Has. sachusetts or Iowa, fr Instance. His maln rellance In the nomlnstlag con vention has all along been held to be on the delegation from the Southern States, whiMeh ast no Republcan vote, and miare wht olonel Benton not in yptd called tartt o Gght delega tiona. Heun'ti diierian allowlg a man In the pesBdetal chair to be a candidkte for the msceedlag term, sla he can easily manpalima theme delegates, by a ibtributn of ptrtmo age, and secure the notdnlatln flo himself. Hence the danger of General Grant's third term raplrtions while he was enjinlag his mecond term. ]Bat when he failed to secure the omlna tion then he loat his chance. His main engine has passed Into the hands of those who are as ambitious of wilod lug it as he. The patronage of the admlnltration will be used against Gen. Grant, and in favor of John Sherman, who is the administration eandidate. Already tile mahebnery has been set at work, and It Is working rapidly and effeatvely. In none of the Southern States is there any Iepublican organisatlon outslde of the customhouses and post-ofmoes. All these offce-holders have had the wont given to send Sherman delegates to the Coaventlon and they will obey lastruc lions to the letter or make way for those who will. Go into the custom house At New Orleans to-day, where thenamofOrant sorecently resounded and you will hear' the name of no one mentioned In connection with the Presi deney except that of the Secretary of the Treasury. This Influence will put Mr. Shorman tar ahead of Gen. Grant or any other man whose name has been mentioned as the probable eandhiate of the Repub lican party for the Presidency. The straw delegates from the Democratie States of the South will cast 188 votes. Only 47 more will be needed to secure the anomination. Of this number Sher man will eertalnly get 2S Afro Ohio, because he is an Ohio man, and he will get them on that eioount whether Pet. ter carries the State in October or not. Penasylvania would give him S9 more, or four more than necesary, and be can get the vote of Pennsylvania. The Caserons will control that vote. Sen ator Cameron mamrred a nlece ofJohn Sheaness, anl It trhit of the elan 'Ca on torek te their elan, .their relatives ~.theirleads. It has been snpposed.thtthe CamPens were Grant men, - bu t t not a eharacteelstic of the Cameron magi to mlnister at the altar of a setting san; and that Grant's sun will set when he loses his carpet bag support, must be evident to every one who is as astute as the Casmerons have ever shown themselves to be. We have thus shown what It was that has so esectually extinguished the Grant boom. Whether Mr. Sherman would make any ietter run than Gen. Grant, or any better President, if elect ed, Is beyond our present enqualry. I the Democrats are wise they will have no reason to fear the candidacy of either. CONSTITUTIONAL C ONVENTION. The ordinance reported by the Cotn mittee on Taxation was takon up: Article 6. The following property shall be exempt from taxation and no other, viz: All public propel ty, plnces of religious worship or burial, all char itable institutions of purely public charity, all property used for college or other school purposes; the real and per sonal estate of any public library, and that of any other literary association used by or connected with such library, all books and philosophical apparatus and all paintings and statuary of any company or association kept in a pub lie hall; provided, the property so ex empted be not used or leased for the purposes of private or corporate profit or income. There shall also be exempt trom taxation household property to the value of live hundred dollars, and manufactories of textile fabrics for a period of teo years from the date of their commencing operations. Article six was adopted, save that portion referring to the exemption of manufactures from taxation, which was referred to the Committeoo on Mann factures. Article seven was taken up. Art. 7. The General Assoembly shall levy a special school tax upon every mate inhabitant in the Htitot over the age of twenty-one yenrs, which Hlaill never be lhes than one dollar nor ex coeod one dollar andl a half per capita, and said tax whel collected shall Ie paid by the collector of tiax, into theo treasury of the parish where collectedl, and be applied nxclulsiv-ly to the pub lic sch0ool fund therein.

The portion of the nrticle reading: "The payment of thie Htate taxts l gally levied under this constitution, collectiblo provious to the year in which the election takes place, shall be a pre requisite to Ule right of voting," was deferred until Tuesday, when the re port of the CoNommittee on Elective Franchie lshall be consideredl.
