It is proper you should es. the ercise justice, moderation, and virtue e- in the framing of our organic law. Grave questi¶s will arise; ques tdoes which wil require all human skill and knowledge to properly con sider and intelligently determine. We have for the past nineteen years s wandered far from those handamen. of tal truths to which a frequent tecuor k a recse is necessary in order to preserve free government and the blessings of rill liberty. We have seen with sorrow precepts depagaed from which cost as blood and treasure to secure, and it of has been our pain to behold the gov m" ernment of Sovereign Common. on wealtbs, wisely founded by our fore ar fathers, well nigh swallowed pp in an m. awful, a tyranteal enatralisation.

Our sufferings are not so e much from extravagant salaries as 1 from the horde of officials created by t the bapMet rulers who have afflicted Susn.

If this be done, the living will bhail the Convention of 1879 as the rja. nivators of Republican freedom in Louisiana, and posterity will embalm in song and story, the valor and vir tlg of their fathers and bless them fU -spriots and sages worthy of oem latioa. eoIsse. While the Detoeratie party was floundering in the Bark, as it were, hunooting for an issue Louisiana pots, one in its bands which ljika out of I sight and bearing the clamots of tie currency reformers as well as the ansioue appeals of Tom Scott and ible Brazil subsidy lobby. That easun is the personal liberty of the citisen-the subversion of the fundamental principles of our repub- 4 lic through the forms of law. Quick to grasp principles whiebh commend themselves wittout argu ment to the American heart, Thuor-. man, of Ohio, and Blackburn, of Kentucky, seized upon the banner of Gqoieracy and moved forward to the rescue of those rights more dear to Slbhan blood or tressure. True to their instinets Republicans antagoni zed popular sentiment at onee, and for 1880 they must stand upon the defensive as the champions of oppres. sion. Weak Indeed must be the states man who would refuse such gage of battle. Nay ; infamous most be the party that would turn back from the vindication of such cause. The sky seems brighter to as now than for toen years past, because we believe that the democuatie party has at last shook . of the "old men of the sea" ; that the I weak eounsels of weak men no longer 4 afflict it, and it now rises from a "party of opposition,'" servile and contemptible, tos party of allggressive principle. The Republic is not yet loot. We rhave weary steps to retrace, and fM I must b rettrned, before we can can i sider sure thbose heritlages of freedom oorforefthersleft am to enjoy.

W We Can't Rule We'll Leave. A Special to the Cincinnati Enqtir er from St. Louis. conveys tihe follow lug intelligence relative to the Exo dus of negroes to Kansas. It seems d that with all their experience tie ne * gro prefers to follow the teachings ,linstilled to him by Radical bum Smer, if ho)catenot rule the country he will leaveit. The special says : This city is at present the objective point of vast numbers of negroes " from Southern points, principally the d plantations of Louisiana and Mississ y ippi. Every north bound boat brings up a cargo of pllanlation hanmds anmlI their famnilies, and tie levee is in points their camping ground, the vast mnajority being too poor to pay 't for even the meanest lodging. Some,. parties down Southl have started the story that extraoidinary inducements are being offered colored people to - settle in Kansas, and that any one a landing in St. Louis will be provided t by the Railroad Company with free pass for himself and family to Kan sas, food on the way and farm and II money to live on when the railroad lands are reached. The people who have already arrived are in a most wretchled condition, devoid, as a rule, of food and money, and not in the f least cast down by their mmisfortunes. f With the characteristic easy going B nature of the plantation negro, they smile when asked what they are go. 3 ing to do, and aver that at any rate tihe authorities here can not throw them into the river, and one or two t have remarked that they would pre fer that fate to being sent back to the homes they have just left. It is I supposed that the canard whmich in n duced the stampede was originated by schleming white people in the South, in order to get the colored residents to leave tile little properties I which many of them possessed. Muchl indignation is felt at tile steamboat men for not checking the folly, and Mayor Overstaltz has determined to enjoin the boats from bringing more negroes to the city, by virtue of an ordinance which prohibits the bring ing of paupers into the city. The Mullanplmy Board, an institution which controls the charitable bequests of a gentleman who died some sears . since, today set aside a sum of muon ey in aid of the stampeders, but if tihe immigration is not at once check. ed, the city will have to provide for a small colony of utterly helpless citi, zens, as these plantation hands are perfectly unacquainted with city ways, and unable to make a living in-almy other way than by agriculture. In the mean time, the Southern planters are doing their best to check the movement, which threatents to de prive them of their means of raising . this year's crop. The Work Laid Out. That the Demosrats have resolved upon the repeal of time odious statutes is Sdelnitely settled and this fact is causing r the adlniuistratiomn io little nuaoabiness. It has been stated that Hayes would re sist to the bitter end, but with au army ofofflice-holders clamoring for their pay Sand who will most assuredly give their - support to the D)emocratic sile at the ap. proeaching Presidential eleeti m, should they be in the leant discommoted, may eause him to think aud act didlerently. Speaking of the work laid out by the IDemocrate a Washigton special to the New Orleans Time says: The firSnt thing to be delone will be the repeal of the United States etatutes, in eluding the test oath and other kindred objectionable fetnres, posse comitatus .Isat, or elarse ia the statutes allowing the nuse of the army at the polls. These will be repealed as separate measures, and senmt to thie President for his signature. If he vetoes them, they will be tacked ou to the legislative, ex ecntive and jndicial applrlri;ntion bills, which authorizes the salarieeof Congress mea,judges, the President and cabinet, amd eumployes in the various departmeuts to be paid. If the President vetoes this bill Con grew will adJourn amod go home. No Congressman can get a peany of pay until the bill is passed and approvedl, nir can any employee of the government from the Iecreltary of tt ,e down, be paid after June 30th. As the vast force here, and in all the Spublic oleers of the conutry is lepubli can, there is sone equirusing under tihe preposed applcatiom0 of the screw, The Democrats say that ifthe President is disposed to to shut up all thie custom houses of the country, aid throw out of empltoymont 102,OUO leials,just becanse he wiahes to continue in force the obnox. ions logslation of the Republican rgi4e, hy very gogd. If he thian the way to make his party solid is to starve out his friends in soft places all over the conuntry, he is at liber. ty to go ashead. But not one aent will be or hie party get until these statutes are wiped out o9rpistance. Upon this the majority in both honesg are unchangelable. The power of public patronage will be taken away from the Republican party whemmever its emnployee cease to draw their salaries, anud as there is an election in Ohio this fall, it is thought the Republeanm will certainly lose the State nmless the great army of 4ce-holders there can get there monthly pay, so they canu be asseessed in aid of tihe Th admainistration is uneay about them resuwlt. Chandler and others have been telling the President it is for the good ofthe party to stick it out; but the 102,00 oSe-bolders will not appreieate the heroism which deprives them of their monathley stipend.
