- We are sorry indeed that oar Demoera
cy does not line with that of our a
teemed friend JaaTumaM , 'of the Capita
eim. We are not prepared, however, to
IR. weep over the lamentable fact. Come to
think of it the chasm is neither wide nor
is bloody, which arates us. State Sover.
r eignty is all. Well, General, we can
aford to let you leetare us; but we have
read all that "State SovereigPty" argu.
Sment in the books of the period for forty
years preceding the war-and it all re
salted in war!
We are glad of our friend's good opinion
of our conduct in "the days that tried
M men's souls." Our advice was good then,
but the fact remains, that it was a hard
on matter to get the Democracy of this State
e. to believe it. Vide, the Democratic press
i- of 1874, and 1875, vs. the Natchitoches
d VINDICATOR, the Shreveport TIMES, the
be New Orleans BuL.rIs and Alexandria
CAUCAsIAN. The trouble was with our
bourbon friends then as now, that it was
he too far in advance-and we meant what
of we said in all our promises; they did not!
tt, Perhaps after all, we may be right now.
P At least, we shall entertain our opinioas,
all the same, and it may be that time,
mu with its fullness, will show our friend that
, Cosonovn's Democracy, although devoid
Pe of the Confederate war with its numerous
,n- needy warriors; although lacking a just
appreciation of the beauties and christi
anising influences of slavery; although it
a- falls to appreciate the pith and point to a
"t logic that would spread a defence of dis
, union over two volumes of hzir-splitting
de sophistry, and end in admitting secession
of "impracticable," sad therefore wrong;
we eay, that very likely, after all we may
Iwr friend has no objection to our be
t (with all these sinse() upon us) a
we will do so. If, however, he
read us out (as he assumes such
Ve, and it would be treason to
whenhe says, nay!) willhe give ns
an a' ter," vouching that we are a good
e- fellow, but a little too fast.
- A New Comastltutiom.
b. If the people who clamor for a new con
SI stitution, even thus early in the day, would
. Ibe more specific, and'nbt so general in
their sweeping denunciation of the "prs'
7y eat instrument,n there might be some
l hope of ealm reason in advance, even of
" modifieations in our organic law, which
are admitted to be necessary. No matter
[ what may be said of the constitution, it
- possesses many good features. .Its tax
n limitation, its legislative restrictions and
Y, many other articles, are a vast improve
ment on the constitution of 1868, and the
,r low salaries, the pitiful salaries were but
.. the result of that demagogical ery of re
Sform, which no doubt many of these same
SJournals now clamoring for some more or
Sgani law helped to swell. We believe
[ with the Shreveport 8t.dard in one ree
a. poet, that a better body than the late
, Constitutional Convention, as a whole,
could not now be selected, and we believe
further, that the agencies which provoked
so "signal a failure" by that body as the
Sconstitution is clamed to be, those es
" teemed eontemporaries who want a "new
a onen are yet alive.
o f we are to have another four month's
Sdebate over repudiation-the repudiation
of Stte, paribh andmanlcipahldebt, let au
Snot, in God's name, call another Conven
Stion. That we will have that ame ery
and crowd, there ean be no doubt.

To the music of the stirring drum,

Very glad to see him looking so robust.
