Hughes - baa forward tie 43dclis hchb to th nns Martin Law. The tpleqraph informs as that eitiea" a New Orleans have appltid at Washstosi Sfor the proelamation of martial law ia thl eity. The grievasnees that have led to th eidstene of such a desire infa ouar midst an truly seriouas. Year by year our eity asi our State arefallnginto poverty. Proper ty is steadily depreelatingin value. Place that were mortgaged-several years agp amr not now worts the amount of money thme loaned upon them with a imargin at tha time, which it was thought would make the loan perfecotly safe, and in many.instance the lenders waould probably not be willing to aecept the property on condition of re lesaing theb debtor. g1n every street one see numbers of buildings for rent, while fie after fieldon our plantations is throws out of cultivation. Laborers discharged is some neighborhoods are erowding-ink others, and a scarecity of employment ii gaining headway where lately the great demand was for laborers. Every one knows the constant cry that has goon forth from our population thua far this winter that there is no business that there is nothing but lethargy and in activity, that mu dull a season was never be fore known in the history of New Orleans Commerce and industry sink hand in hane to the depths of ruin. The shipping that used to crowd our sis or eight miles o levee front now contents itself with an ooc cajional wharf here and there, and fiat bats are broken up in front of the Frencu Market instead of three miles below. The cause of all this paralysis that iS creeping over us with its fell spirit of deso lation is simply the withdrawal of foreige capital. "Money makes the mare go," ii an old saying, and means that the augas house, the eotton gine, the saw mill, even the woodman's axe, will cease their noiay activity and lapse into the silence of nature unless kept going by money. Foreign capital built a large portion of this city, and inda itself bitterly disappointed in the investment; it has sustained our agricultu ral efforts, and in many cases struggles in vain to retrieve itselt from the enauing embarrassment. Foreign capital appears to be steadily retreating from our Joan market, and domestic capital, is becomaing equally timid. The consequence of all this, as long as it lasts, will be the con. tinned decay of our every interest, and the continued spread of that thriftless air of ruin which evidently pervades the whole State. Now, the question is, what is it that thus frightens capital away; to which the reply on everybody's lips is, misgovernment. There is always an Insecurity of property, and of capital invested in property, where the governing power Is alien to the inter esta of the people, and intent merely on their plunder. This disposition of a gov ernment is easily detected. For Instance, in this State, an issue of bonds in two or three years increasing our indebtedness by thirty millions of dollars, a city and parish increase of perhape as much more, a system of granting monopoliem to private corpora tions, of dona'ing public property to pet railroads and canals, sanitary dodges,-lot tery privileges and every acheme of money extortion that human Ingenuity can in vent, are enough to showeapital that it is in the position of ,the bhare before the hounds. As if this were not sufficienlet, direct and Indirect taxation in multiplied enormous ly. The profits of real estate investment are eaten up In tax bills, greatly augment ed by costs and damages which the laws are cunningly framed to create. The land swarms with tax collectors, and yet the people cannot And oat what they owe or whore or when they must pay it. Hun dreds and thousands of taxpayers are re turned from the various parishes as delin quents, simply because nobody ever called on them fir their taxes, and why !-be cause for each and every delinquent re turned on the list, one dollar goes to the parish recorder and two dollars go to the State Auditor. Why, the government treats the people as publio enemies and as the legitimate victima of extortion. And all this comes upon a community just re coveriog from the complete prostration of a long and unsuccessful war, eandtrpgling with the dificulty of a rew and very Im perfect labor asstem. frutrse than all the license system is invented and applied like the torture. The bonds flnally sell for little or nothing, di rect taxation, no matter how enormons, yields too little to satisfy the greed of our despotie masters, and they are actually ashamed to lIcrease it In the face of the civilized world. What then? Money must be had In some way. Licenses! Ltcense them ! Every poor teamster of the pine woods, with his yoke of oxen or span of lean mules, must pay forty dollars for the priviloge of doing the few jobs that may yield him one or two hundred dollars in course of the-year; a little neighborhood grist mill must pay two hundred dollars per year; the, lame for a little saw mill run by water power, which does the sawing for a backwoods neighborhood whenever the little stream on which it is located is not too dry ; the same for any poor colored man who bas two or three children to help him and can make a few bricks as the only pro duct of the miserable land on which he is leate.d. Y,:twi buaadred dollars a JAw he muatpy les pfor lhs auing a piee a lead which he auet postsibly sell for thai muhel money. " But they keow how to apply the screws and they get the moeey, hiougn i 3 are gradually LtAe the.geoese that lays the goldena eggs. People vefase to haul fol their nelighbors, littl* ~shoo shut up, little mills hbaush up, little briekyards break up, little plantations grow ap (in bushes) and the eesntry gets to looking so lonesome sal woibegnea that capital becomes frightened and seanmpers o Now, it Is naturally painful to our peo. pie to fee a magnfleenat country like this, with fa glorioaus climate, falling- into decay and lapsing into a wilderness. They know full well that all tbe elements of wealth and prosperity arehete and that they do not need even encouragement, but only to be set-stone, In order to bloom forth in every form of national greatness. It is no won der, then, that they want to get rid of a government which causes all this rain, which plunders our people, represses every industry, destroys every source of credit and drives away capital. They have no hope of getting rid of the Governor by their own strength, considering the legal fortificeations he iss built around himself, and-the Governor Is the Government. They therefore, say to the national power, Protect as with martial law. We are tired of self-government when one man does all the voting. We welcome the mus ket so long as the butt of it is on his neck. We do not fear the sword, for it is not as sharp as carpet-bag canning, nor the bayonet, for it is not as searching as the tax-collector's signature. The Situation. The great and practical question of the situation is whether the, general govern ment can n *any shape interfere to relieve our community of the incubus of misgov ernment which weighs upon it so fearfully. The old man of the sea who rides on our shoulders woot get drunk and be shaken of because he drinks nothing bat money and his appetite for that is insatiable. How then can General Grant get us rid of our Governor. It is evident that he most, in the interest of the Republican party, be extreznly-anx Ions, nearly as much so, indeed, as we our selves are, that we should be rid of War moth, for any further tolerance by that party of such outrages as have marked his reign in Louisiana, would throw upon it the moral responsibility of that whole crtmlnal record. Martial law is called for and, would cer tainly afford some relief, but that cannot be a permanent arrangement and would leave the same civil officers in position. A reconstruction of the State, placing it un der a military governor, would be still much better, but that would require an act of Congress and another reconstruction would fad a very unfavorable current to counteract. Certainly if it could be done, it would go far towards re-establishing the credit and }*etoring the prosperity of the State. The military supervision and con trol of such a-man as eitherGeneral Canby, General Hanoock or General Emory would insure honesty and economy in the dis charge of publio functions. We can scarcely hope for such action, however, under the worn-oat name of reconstruao tion. But cannot something of a similar nature in result, though based on a differ ent principle, be effected The Constitution of the United States,' guarantees to every State a republican form of government and, we boldly and cofdently say that Louisiana has not a re publican form of government. She scarce ly has it in name and not at all in sub stance. The constitation of the State pro vides for the exercise of the right of asuffrage by its citizens and the elec tion law of the State deprives thei of it. The Governor has the right to ignore and reject the vote of any citizens, of as many of them as he may choose to reject, of all of them if he so wills it. Is that a right to vote when your vote can be thrown out at the mere caprice of another man ? It follows then that one man who has this right to manipulate the votes of the people and reject them If he chooses is really the only voter In the State. His one will may elect to every ofice. He is, therefore, more than dictator, more than Emperor, more than Czar or Sultan. There is no despot In the world whose despotism is confrmed to him by voluntary written law, made by the people themselves. We should say no other despot, for virtually and practically there is no other ruler liv ing in the civilized world who rules auto cratically and singly of his own will so completely as Governor Warmoth of Lon Isiana. Look at the case of Wheyland, the per son who was killed the other day. This individual was a creature or tool of War moth. He was sent to Sabine Parish sev eral days before the last election, seven days it is said, as registrar of votes. He was an utter stranger, but boldly announced himself as candidate for election to the legislature. His-pponent, an old citizen got nearly all the votes, yet he returned himself as elected, and Governor Warmoth manipuiated rte votes so as to suoetain him. It was, therefore, Warmoth who *lsleed as; h ear "66 Waii h, i.t i ais satd sar'wen be ippr e, eteored to i the legslature of his owa sole willha total costempt of the popular ete, a sseaslent number of his pereonal frieads and retatin ogive hr i oleos majority in the legislature Mir ibe pattleg threoth of any scheme. The legislatare is, therefsre, bet a retea of his will, with merely a su- ient element of opposition to keep np ap pearance. Ours- ia, therefore, essential lyr one man government. Now we contend in all earnestness, that this Ida mere -socketiy of representative or republican government. It is the car case without the spirit, retaining nothing of the original structure but the offenlsive ness of Its decay. If the Federal Govern ment really means to guaranty the republi canism of our State (Government, let it Im periously demand that the suffrage of the votes shall be respected and their votes counted ; let it disperse the miserable throng of preteufis and hypocrites who meet here and call themselves a legislature by the grace of Warmoth, and let it de clare that the election law whieh provides for such a frand is a disgrace and a nullity. A military government could then re appropriately establishecd here until an election should have been held under proper anspices and until a new legislature should have repealed that obopxious and unrepublican act called the election law. Hibernian Benevolent and Mutual Aid Astociation of Louisiana. The new delegates elected by the several Branches of this Association to represent them in the Central Boa during the coming year, met in the Mornink Star Hall last Monday evening. An organization of the new Board was effected by the election of Frank McGloin, President; D. A. Mullade, Vice President; John C. Murray, Secretary, and Eugene Snlli van, Treasurer. The committee appointed by the old Board for the purpose of preparing a report of the condition of the Association for and during the year 1871, submitted a very clear and con else statement, from which we make the fol lowing extractaiý On the let of January, 1871. the Association was composed of six Branches, with the fol lowing membership: No. 1, 202; No. 2, 91; No. 3, 126; No. 4, 79; No. 5, 79; No. 6, 41 making a total of 618. The increase in the number of Branches and members during the year was so rapid that on the 31st of December we find that there were eleven Branches, with 1085 active and three honorary members. The numerical strength of each Branch is reported as follows: No. 1, 248 members; No. 2, 106; No. 3,187; No. 4, 103 active and three honor ary, 106; No. 5, 131; No. 6, 114; No. 7, 61; No. 8, 35; No. 9, 31; No. 10, 39; No. 11, 30. The deaths were as follows: No.1, 6; No.2,1; No. 4,,1; No.5, 2; No. 6,2; No. 7, 2-total, 14.

A man who has no enemies is sel domn good for anything he is made of that kind of material, which is so easily worked Ii that every one has a hand in it.

The New York Tablet announces the death of Dr. F. lHolahan, one of Daniel O'Connell's in timate friends.

A late Chicago Poet says: "Ourlynx-eyed assistants report this morning that 1743 people slipped down yesterday on the perfidious side walks. Of thbese 1140 were men, 403 women, and 200 miscellaneous. The table shows that over 300 landed on their elbows, the others sat down. Of the entire number, 1742 of them swore-131 audibly." The total number of deaths from smallpox in London during the last year was eight thou sand. The average ef the thirtyon. years preceding last year Is six hundred. The medi caljournals call attention to the alarming in crease of the disease, and they warn the public to take all preosution, and they appeal to the Government to interpose in aid of the sanitary regulations, and to establish special hospitals and carefolly quarantine all infected districts. The Cincinnati Gazette, in commenting upon the resolution of the Chicago Common Conncil directing the Mayor to withhold licenses from newspoys and sboebhcks, except those who can produce certifcates of good moral charao ter, says: " It is a shame to require neoaboys 'of good moral character to sell such papers as those of Chicago represent each other to be. Let the Council require good character of the editors, and suppress the Chicago newspapers altogether." Unsophisticated male editors in St. Louis express astonishment at the diabolical inge nuity of a lady witness in one of their courts who is reported to have said, " Give me the least grain of truth for a basis and I can ruin the character of any woman in the world."
