In JLeuigiana the regular legal and consti tutional elections for the munioipal efwea of New Orleans were stopped by a Btilitarv ediet. This was the inaugura tion of the KadWl plan in that State. The next stop of. the Brigadier Governor was the arbitrary removal of the Attor ney Genoral of the State, the Mayor of the city of New Orleans, and the .Judge of the Knt District Ctiurt in that city, and. to appoint their sueeessors respec tively. It was, doubtless, deemed im portant that a precedent should be at once established, showing tho military absolutism over the civil administration, both general and munVoipdL No. ground is urged, no reason alleged ; but the order is simple and imperative it is the will of the mWltary irnperator, responsible to no one but himself, and is so proclaimed as to appear as a wanton exercise of power, beaus&the power was possessed under the law. As a pregnant fact in the cur rent history of the .subversion of rcpub licHn landmarks nnd institutions, we bring forward the order from the tele graphic columns of yesterday, and place it where it can be more fully inspectod and admired. Here it is : Gknirat. Obder No. 6. Andrew J. Ilerron, Attorney General of thef?tate of Louisiana, Jno. T. Monroe, Mayor of New Orleans, and Edmund Abel, Judge of the First District Court of the city of New Or leans, are hereby removed from their re spective offices from 12 Jr. to-day. The fol lowing appointments are made, lo take eilect at the samo date : B. L. Lynch, At torney General of the State of Louisiana, Edward Heath, Mayor of New Orleans, and W. W. Howe, Judge of the First Dis trict Court of New Orleans. Each person removed will turn pver all books, papers, records, etc., ncrtaininjr to his office, to the appointed thereto. The authority of the latter will be duly respected and enforced. By command of Maj. Gen. P. H. SriEninAN. (Signed.) Geo. L. IIartsufk, A. A. G. In the very midst of profound peace, when there is not an arm raised against the civil authority of tho government, a military ruler, sustained by bayonets, is silenoing tho people and displacing the agents of their choice from the rights and Amotions of their official positions ! For the time-being and as long as this state of things continues, it is nonsense to talk of civil liberty, or of constitu tional guaranties. It is a despotism ns absolute as could be possibly devised. Nay more : it cncouragcs.usurpation and tyranny on the part of the little military subalterns who assume the role of dicta tors at pleasure, and without the author ity of tho "force bill" itself This fact is amply illustrated by the officious and unauthoriied interference of an inferior post officer at Augusta, interdicting the regular municipal elections in that city. Wull might the President exclaim, as lie does with taitriotie indignation in his Inst veto message: "It is nbsurd it is pre posterous it is u 'scoff and satire on constitutional liberty for forms of govern ment to be prescribed by militury lead ers, nnd tho right of suffrage be exercised at the point of the sword." And he never uttered n more solemn truth than, when he says in the same document : " When I contemplate the millions of our fellow-citizens of the South, with no alternative left but to impose upon them selves thix fearful and untried experiment of complete negro enfranchisement, and white disfranchisement, (it may be almost complete,) or submit indefinitely to martial law, without a single attribute of freemen, deprived of all the sacred guarantees of our Federal constitution, and threatened with even worse wrongs, it seems to me their condition is the most deplorable to which any people can be reduced." Yet, tinder theso fierce persecutions, tho people of the South, relying on the ultimate triumph of themmutablo prin ciples of human right, liberty and jus tiee, arc postiing through the ordeal with an elevation of spirit, of dignity and courage worthy of them and of the cause of freedom. They do not quarrel with fate; but are uniting to a man in the only course possible under tho circum stances. Under the guidance of the wisest nnd best among thorn they aro acting thoir part to save the temple which totters nmid tho revels of tho sacrilegious mockers; and should Constitutional lib erty nurvivo in this country it will owe its preservation to tho wisdom, patience, virtue and patriotism of tho South. The stone which the builders have rejected will become the chiof cornor of the tample, if we remain a free people. But should liberty tvipirc, thon tho ruin will include the faithless persecutors, as well as the persecuted. Evidkxtly, from the imperious tone of the Press and Times, thoro is troublo brewing in the Radical camps horeabouts. A seat in Congross from this distriot is to ba a bone of oontontinn. A nominating convention is called to nssemblo some time in May to sottlo the dispute. Simul taneously with the appearance of tho oall, the Radical organ hoists the name of Mr. Trimbh?, and launches its dark anathemas at Hie disturbers of the Radi cal peace, denounces the later converts t the oligarchic ohuroh, and puts in n few sturdy blows for thos who "prowl around Union Leagues" to gain a footing to sh1wv personal ends. Let the trumput sound and tho tournament begin. It will be observed tlmt the Radi cal Republican distriot committee, in their call for a congressional convention, omit to mention the colored voters. The organ attempts to amend this lapse by saying that it was intended for voters without distinction of color." The offi cial call, however, does not include them. The Radieal Republicans of Tennossae ave hitherto taken their official eue frem their brethren in the Northern States. Their anxiety to carry the elections in Uits State in Adjust led them to enfran chise the colored people, but as their friends in the North hesitate to sanction this measure in their own States, the wire-pHlW.ru here seem to lie puzzled in regard to unreserved committal to it They are betweea the devil fend the deep sea. They want negro rotes, but they are afraid to run counter to that party to which they bare looked for counsel and wtpport, Rnd on whose moral nnd material id thev relv Car nimnurt Kntil thn Itadical Republicans of New Ynrk.

When the question of calling a convention to amend the con stitution of New i,ork-was before -the Legislature of that State, negroes not possessed of the property ualifjcntion now required by law, were not allowed to vote, though the Legislature is strongly' Radical. At the meeting of tho Repub lican State Central Committee of New York, held at Albany, on the 21st inst, Mr. Spencer, of New: York city, offered the following resolution: j Resolved, That this, the State Commit tee of the Union Republican party of the State of New York, recognize as one of the doctrines of the tiarty whose representa tives we are, the right of every citizen to equality before the law, and congratulate the country upon the action of many hitherto prominent Rebels in the Soutli- tjiatrn ill iucii iclvuoiuji hi imvb.iu..- i nn.1 .winiajfMinM tl.a t.t!nn nf ' Congress giving to the black man a vote. SjThero was great anxiety, in view of the recent action of the Legislature, to secure the adoption of this resolution, but a mnjority of the committee refused to endorse the doctrine, and the resolu tion was lostjby a vote of eight for to ten against it. Inajtho South the Radicals, where they are in a great minority among the white people, regard tho negro as entitled not only to "equality beforo the law," but to the ballot. In the Nortn where there are very few negroes, so few that their votes could not influence any election, and where tho Radicals and Re publicans are in the majority, they do not think it at all expedient to trust the dark "man and brother" with the ballot The Radicals of the South need the no gro vote to onable them to carry tho elec tions and get into offices, and the Con gress ordains that the negr65shall v6te in ten of the Southern States, and hold office, if they"cnn be elected. In Ten nessee, where the Radicals, although greatly in the minority, have obtained power through adventitious circum stances, the negro vote is wanted to help them retain this power, but with a ma jority in both branches of the Legisla ture, they persistently refused to allow the negro the privilege of holding office. They are desired and. expected to vote to continue in office Governor Rrownlow, who has de clared within two years that they aro 41 ignorant, docile, easily. led by- design ing men, and not safely trusted with po litical power," and who did nothing to change the purpose of his party to dony the negro the right to hold office. Eigh teen months ago he declared that "negro voting cannot suit his natural prejudices of caste;" that "it would be bad pol fey, as well ns wrtmg in principle, to open tho ballot box to the uninformed and exceed ingly stupid slaves of tho Southern cot ton, rice nnd sugar fields." Now ho fears that he and his Legislature cannot get white votes enough to continue them in office, nnd they appeal to these "unin- formed and exceedingly stupid" negroes to save them from the indignant but iust reward of nn outraged people. If the Radicals could have retained their lease-hold upon office through white votes, they never would have conferred the right of suffrage upon the negro. This is fully established by the fact that in tho North, whore they do not need his vote, they steadily refuse to confer (he right of suffrage upon him. PROMPT ACTION. The Conservatives of Bradley county have held a meeting and appointed dele gates to the State convention to meet on tho 10th of April. The resolutions adopted wore earnest, patriotic and evince the right spirit. The meeting ex pressed a preference for that fearless champion of constitutional liberty, II6n. Thomas A. R. Nelson. CoL Jl. M. Ed wards, well-known ns a fighting friend of the Union, came out boldly and em phatically for the Conservative cause and in opposition to tho present revolutionary oligarchy. All is going well in East Tennessee. Tuk Radicals manifest an intense in terest in tho elevation and prosperity of the colored people especially the veteran soldiors. The genuineness of these professions is amply illustrated by the treatment of them whcnlhey were mustered out of tho service. Large numbers were dis charged bore in Nnshville. Their pay was generally offset by bills for clothing, etc, brought in by their white officors, nnd n majority of them were left penni less in tfle inidtt of n population who, the Radicals have lied themselves hoarse to prove, was hostile to 'them. Compara tively few rocoivcd their bounty, nnd found thomsolvos no better off at tho end of their service thau when they left their old homes. This was the treatment ac corded by their peculiar friends. What then occurred? Their so-called enemies took them by tho hand and gave them employment, and many arc now on the high road of prosperity. Thousands of men in Tonnasseo who were in the Confederate service have and are em ploying blaok nson who eerred in the Federal army, and are paying thorn good wages, this is the uiuerenco between real nnd pretended friendship, and the negro will do well to cherish it in his memory.

The Senate agreed to a conference call on the Senate contingent deficiency bill. On motion of Mr. Trumbull the Senate proceeded to the consideration of a resolu tion for adjournment. After some dthate an amendment was offered by Mr. Edmunds, and adopted, that they adjourn on Saturday to the first Wednesday in July then, unless other wise ordered, n die by a vote of 23 to 14. The projiosition as amended was passed and returned to the House. The House bill for the monthly payment of salaries of Congressmen passed. Mr. Sprague called up bill to fix the lime for the bankrupt law to go into effect on first of June, which had been referred to the Judiciary Committee and reported adversely. Mr. Conness moved to strike out the proviso that nothing in the act shall be construed to invalidate any conveyance made in good faith prior "to the taking effect of this act Pending discussion, the Senate went into executive session and soon adjourned. House. The Speaker presented resolutions from the Maryland Republican convention. Fernando Wood remarked that he had in possession the proceedings of an- indig nation meeting recently held in New York with reference to the refusal of the Repub licans in the Legislature to grant suffrage to the negroes, and asked whether, if sent to the Speaker, they would be submitted to the House. The Speaker declined to an ticipate the question. Ir. Thomas, spoke in support of the Maryland resolutions, but utterly denied there was a republican government in Maryland. It was an engine of infamous tyranny and opposition, which no free people submitted to, he believed. Congress had the power, and should pass an enabling act giving equal laws to the people of Maryland. Mr. Eldridge argued that the same ine quality complained of in Maryland ex ited in Maine. Mr. Conness, of Pennsylvania, said a real republican government existed in no State but Tennessee, and Illinois was no core republican than that which existed under the Pacha of Egypt or the Sultan of Turkey. The Senate was a body existing in utter defiance of all republican forms of government, for Nebraska had equal rep resentation there with Illinois, Ohio, Penn sylvania and New York. The proposition of the gentleman from Maryland would amount to the subversion of the whole structure of the government, and a consoli dation of despotism of the worst kind. Mr.Robinson denied that the constitution gave any such power to Congress. After further debate, the resolutions were referred to the Judiciary Committee. After various propositions looking to an adjournment of Congress, the House finally agreed to adjourn until the 5th of June. Mr.Ingersol introduced a joint resolu tion proposing an amendment to the consti tion of the United States; providing all male citizens over twenty-one years, having the qualifications of electors of the most numerous branch of tho State Legislature in their several States, shall be entitled to vote at elections without disqualification on account of race, color, or previous condi tion.

The committee on resolutions, appointed at the afternoon session, has reported reso lutions appealing to Congress to grant the request of tho memorial of the Republican members of the Legislature, and to protect the loyal mnjority of the people of the State of Maryland, white and colored, and give them a State constitution on the basis of inanhcod suffrage; opposing any consti tution in subversion of the present one, which does not express the will of the peo ple, without regard to color, as revolution ary usurpation, and that we will take no part in the approaching election ot aeie- gates to the convention, further than to re commend the Republicans of the State to vote against a call for a convention, and use all lawful means to defeat the call. They propose independent, separate action in case the legislative constitution is sus tained by a -majority of the voters of the State, and that a convention of its oppo nents bo held in Baltimore, on the first Wednesday in June, to proceed to form a constitution on the basis of manhood suf frage. rii !..;-. --1 .i.t J.UU tugiuu rtwiiuiuu urciurw uiu wis dom and courage are all that is necessary to success, nnd calls upon the veteran soldiers of the State to aid in accomplish ing the victory.
