" New stockings have the stripes running lengthwise," crosswise, and every other way not wise. _ The Largest Load —The James Howard passed Natchez at 11 A. M. yesterday with 7700 bales of cotton. This is the largest load of cotton ever carried by at y vessel. The newest ornament for the parlor is an automatic fountain which is made with an olaborate basin and pedestal, and throws a spray ten feet high. The Sanitary Recorder says that after dinner an hour bhould be devoted to social récréa tion, tor the repose of both body and mind, We hope farm hands will attend to this. " The moon is dead," said Prof. Proctor, Then Murat Halstead took a slice of lemon out of his punch and said to Watterson: "Ice-hay, Henry, how's that fur a moon?" Man (with hands in pockets): "Seenany thing of a job o' work lately, John?" Other man (bands in other pockets): "Stw one t'other day, but didn't like to ask, 'cos they might 'a said yes.—London Fan. The American play-wright, we think, has made his bow. The maiden effort may pos sess crudities, but the "Musette" of Mr. Fred. Marsden is a feather in the cap of its author, and destined to be the forerunner of dramatic works which will challenge unquali fied approval.— New Orleans Times. Miss Lillie Eldridge and even Miss Lotta herseli have been starring for some years in other plays by tbe same author, which are considered excellent, and which were written long before " Musette." We notice that Capt. L. H. Johnson, of the Pullman Palace Comoany, after a short holi day vacation, is again at his post on the Southern Railway route to Baltimore. The Captain is well known and highly appreciated by travelers over this ronte, on account of his great kindness and considerate attention. A venerable lady, a friend of ours, who some time since came alone to this city from Balti more, expresses herself deeply grateful to him for the tender care he bestowed upon her during the journey. The chair occupied by George Washington as Worshipful Master of the Masonio Lodge at Alexandria, Va., is now in the possession of Unanimity Lodge of Ancient Free and Ac cepted M tson-\ at Eienton, North Carolina, whither it was sent during the war of 1812 for safe keeping. It is of massive mahogany, elaborately carved and a fine specimen of antique furniture. Au effort will be made to induce its custodians to allow this memento ot the illustrious "man and Mason" to be placed on exhibition at Philadelphia next year. Things may be and are pretty bad with us; they could not easily be worse than they ^iava been since the war, but then there is a sort of grim satisfaction in knowing that they are not altogether lovely in the North. A gentleman living near New York city—one who was born and reared at the North, and who loved the old Union with his whole heart, writes thus to a friend in this city: " Business does not improve much. Things still look dark, squally and queer. The in fernal politicians ! What can be done to rid the country of them ? Fools and madmen ! thieves aad rascals of all kinds and descrip tions ! Gen. Grant commander in chief. I have not voted since the war, and I see no landmarks which I can yet recognize of the country I once loved and almost adored." Attention is called to the official statement of the Administrator of Improvements rela tive to the estimate of expenses made tor that department, which will be found on page 6. This statement was read before the Council in regular session, on Tuesday, December 2S, and ordered to be spread upon the minutes, It is a clear and concise epitome of facts and figures relating to the imperative expenses which must be met to secure the Rafety ot property and promote the business of the city, The statement contains in a condensed form the kind of information requisite to form a jnst aud comprehensive idea of what is abso lately necessary to carry on that department of the city government through which the largest disbursements take place. M jor Burke, in making his estimates for neoessary expenditures, has evidently called for no more than what he considers striotly a requisite. The amount is small in compari son with the expeditures of former years, and if he could, in justice to property holders and all ether classes of citizens, make the amount Jess, he would doubtless do so at once and «heeriullv. ! ATTENTION TO DUTY. All of our Democratic friends should not ! forget that this is the day on which an election is to take place throughout the city for delegates to the Democratic-Conservative Convention, to be held in this city on the 5,h of January. We have, from time to time, urged upon our friends the importance of electing the best representative men in every . ward. To accomplish this most desirable end, every citizen having the welfare of our city at heart should be sure to be present at the polls to-day and vote for the right kind of men. jf duty is neglected by them, they must hold themselves responsible for every failure or shortcoming of the men who may pretend to represent their interest in this coming council of the people. W bat the people wad is honest, unquestioned and ; manly assertion of their rights and privi leges, and whoever pretends to have a right t0 re P resen f them must show such a record of consistency and moral standing that his purity of motive or integrity of purpose can not be questioned. I It must be considered by every resident voter of the city of New Orleans to be his bonnden duty not only to poll his own vote, but to see that all friends and neighbors ex croise the sime important political function, The day is big with the fate of Louisiana and the Democratic party, and our State has a right this day to expect that every man his duty. See to it that the charge negligence or apathy be not brought against you in this hour, when your utmost endeav ors are required to aid yourself and yonr be loved S.ate. A QUESTION. If the City Council should conform to the request contained in the St. Patrick's Hall resolutions, and refuse to levy and collect the an an a park, police, school and city debt taxes for the year 187G, on the ground of the injustice and constitutional invalidity of the State laws prescribing such levy and collection, what will the Mayor and Administrators do with the unpaid taxas of 1875 and preceding years, amounting to two or three millions of dollars ? Will, or will not, the re fusal to collect or the acknowledged absence 0 f the right to collect such taxes for 1870 be entirely and logically consistent with the per gistent determination and the assumed right to collect by process of law the taxes of the current and former years? City authorities are asked to decllne lev y ,n g and collecting tbe obnoxions and onerous taxes above named ' for the comi "g y ear - because each and a11 of them are wrong or illegal, or unnecessary, or beyond the power of taxed property to pay; now a large proportion of tbe unpaid taxes of this and other years, nearly two thirds, are of the same character, levied on the same property and under the same odious and oppressive Radical statutes. Shall the delinquents of this and former years be re leased from their overdue taxes aud the costs and interest thereto appending for the reason that such taxes were wrongfully and illegally assessed ? But if delinquents are thus release! as a measure of justice, how is justice to be done to those who have already paid all their taxes ? If the St. Patrick's Hall resolutions are acc6ded to b - v the Council and delinquents for old taxes are not released - wil1 not the Coun ' cil appear in the strange attitude of enforcing b * P roc0ss of oourt the ver ? same laws the y refuse to obey ? CONSTITUTIONAL TINKERS. This being the era of experirr entai tinker ing* it is not at all remarkable that politicians who hanker after notoriety should try to in vent new and serious changes in the Consti tution of the Federal Government. One wants the election of the President taken from the House of Representatives in the event of the failure of any candidate to get a majority of the votes of the electoral college. Another wants the people of each State to vote for members of the United States Senate as • they do for State officers. Another wants the people to vote directly for President and Vioe President, as they vote for members of Congress, so that candidates may have the full benefit of each vote cast .or them. Last among the innovators is he who proposes so to change the Constitution as to limit the tenure of the Presidency to a siugle term, but to extend the term to six years in stead of four, and to give to the ex-President a seat and voice in the Senate for life, with pay, but without a vote. In accord .nee with instincts essentially conservative we prefer to adhere to the system as it is rather than to adopt any experimental changes; aud therefore we are not prepared to give a very hospitable welcome to new theo ries which have never been tried here or else where. The one here noted is no exception. A few ntore years will complete the century during which the Chief Magistrate will have been chosen for four years, wi:h the privilege of at least one re-election. Until sectional hate and prejudice took the place of public spirit and a generous patrio ism, from the in auguration of Washington until the retire ment of Buchanan, nothing occurred to make the people, or a majority of them, wish for the restriction of any President to a single term. If other safeguards of the Constitu tion are left unimpaired in their full force and efficiency, we oil know that legislative and judicial authority in proper hands is fully competeot to keep the ablest and most auda cious autocrat in the world from putting the libarty of the republic in peril. With a Congress to check, regulate and limit all ex penditnres, and with forty subordinate repnb lies all jealous of their rights, with an army in time of peace never equal to a two hun dreth part of the armsbearing citizans of the Union, and in time of war made up of citizen soldiers fresh from their homes, the Execa five could not be a source of rational fear to a nation composed of men who know the value of liberty. As long as worthy and honest citizens form a vast and preponderant majority over the base and corrupt, any wise President ambitious of re-election would base his pretensions on the honesty of his Motives and the beneficence of his I acts, and trust to the support of the honest majority, rather than to that of the de not generate minority. As long as the masses of an the people are true and intelligent, and as city long as they cherish the love of political lib e rty, there can be but little danger from the 5,h aspirations of an ambitions President; and when the people cease to be thus honest and of liberty-loving, no written guarantees of sta . tutes or constitutions can long preserve them from confasion, anarchy and final despotism, city j a fan v j ew 0 f the experience of a war such the as need not again be feared in a century, with of all its peculiar and disturbing effects, we are of the opinion that nothing has yet occurred in the course of more than twenty Presidential terms to makes change in the period of office, or in the re-eligibility of the President, orinthe manner of his election, in any way necessary the or desirable. That part of the Constitution has worked welL No President his been so g00 d that we could wish his constitutional powers enlarged—not even a Washington, a of Jefferson, or a Jackson ; no President, not even a Grant, has been so bad that we conld wish the Constitution changed in order that the exeentive power might be thereby curtailed. Let this tinkering and tampering be rebuked by the solid and conservative sense ot the people. If we keep our constitu tional inheritance intact, politicians may play as many fantastic tricks as they please, and our fabric of liberty will still be safe. THE STATE CONVENTION. Delegates from the country parishes to the Democratic State Convention are arriving in the city. Almost without exception they express themselves in favor of a course which will unite all the elements of opposition to i the Republican party, and thus assure the j success of reform measures and the purifiea : tion of tho State government as the result of tbe e * eot ' on nex ^ year. We can not doubt that the Democracy of the city, and, indeed, all voters who are anxious to redeem the State from misrule, will prove that they are influenced by similar considerations. Our city elections for delegates are yet to be held. During the preliminary meetings for the choice of commissioners and clerks there was confusion and excitement in some of the wards; but there is no reason to sup pose that ther9 is any division of opinion such as might lead to dissension in the future. It is to be hoped that there will be an essential agreement among the delegates as to the course to be pursued and the decla rations to be made by the Convention; and i We are sure that wise counsels will prevail if the great masses of those whose interests sre involved in the prosperity of the State will interest themselves in the choice of delegates, The elections should not be left to the man agement and control of a small number, or of a single class. All citizens favorable to re form should participate in them—laborers, artisans, professional men, shop keepers, traders and merchants. There ought to be a full representation of the party, and a free interchange of opinion, if the decisions of the Convention are to ccmmand assent and to enlist that united and earnest support which is the only guarantee or success. a for ' y of A 00NSPI0U0U8 DIFFERENCE. The Republican can see no difference be tween the riotous proceedings of a ward meet ing and the outburst of popular indignation against usurpation and tyranny, against fraud and corruption in office, and against a sup positious government contrived through the prostitution of judicial functions, and sup ported by military force, which culminated in tha revolution of the 14th of September. Both, in the Republican's opinion, are sim ply kindred forms of violence, and the latter was only a persecution of innocent Republi cans who happened to be in possession of public offices. Perhaps the Republican can detect no dif ference between tho faction fights of Donny brook Fair, and the uprising of the English people against James II. Perhaps the whis ky insurrection did not materially differ from the gathering of the New England farmers at Lexington. Perhaps the Republican thinks that the Cen tennial celebration at Philadelphia will com. memorate an act of violence not materially differing from a Know-Nothing riot. Perhaps the Republican is entirely incapable of under standing that there may be such a thing as justifiable resistance to unbearable tyranny, or as the laudable revolt of a people against a usurping government. That the Republican is unable to see a dif ference between a row at a ward meeting and the uprising of the people of Louisiana against an intrusive government, existing in flagrant defiance of law, and living in con tinual violation of the first principles of Ame rican liberty, is quite natural. Nevertheless the difference exists, and is plain to every one whose common sense and c-macitvr for imnartinl indûment aro mt capacity ior imparti judgment are not per verted by partisan prejudice, or suffocated under the weight of olucial patronage. PERVERSION OF FACTS, No one acquainted with the character and proclivities of the Republican will bo surprised at its misrepresentation of the late Natchi toches homicide. To ail such its attempts to picture the unfortunate Pierson as au inno cent martyr to his political faith will appear as they are, merely absurd. The persecution of Pierson anterior to the tragedy which ended in his death is altogether imaginary, The quarrel between him and Cosgrove was a personal affair which, after a long series of hostile acts, messages and remarks, all of un usual bitterness, ended at last in a personal rencontre for which both of the personal ene mies were prepared and had full reasons to the same premeditated collision, it would not have made a case of martyrdom. Tne at tempt to make it appear that a decent man can not be a Republican in Louisiana, and be safe as to life, limb and property, is charac teristically absurd. anticipate. The meeting resulted, as such meetings j , . , ... r.. , . , " often do, in a homicide. To which party the greater blame attaches can only be known when all the facts and circumstances are ascertained.
