The Unceastitutional Counentien.
The self-styled State Constitutional
Convention has provided, by ordinance,
that the voting for ratification or rejec
tion of the proposed unconstitutional
Constitution shall take place on Friday
and Saturday, 17th and 18th prox.
This we think was an entirely unnec
essary piece of mislegislation on the
part of that disloyal assembly of irre
sponsible vampires, as the Military bills
under which they profess to act and by
which authority they are assembled,
simply provides that ,"after the adjourn
ment of the Convention the Command
ing General shall order an election, etc."
By whose permission or what authority
do they presume to designate the time
for holding said election? It is not their
province to say anything in regard to
the matter, but simply to adjourn
which is the best thing they can do
and leave the district commander to
perform his prescribed duties without
any unnecessary dictation.
The ordinance also provides that at
the same time and place balloting will be
had for State, Congressional, Judicial,
Parish and Municipal officers, whose
term of service will date from the first
3Monday in November following their
election, but are to enter upon the dis
charge of their duties on the 2d Monday
after official promulgation of their elec
tion. The Legislature meets at New
Orleans on 3d Monday after promulga
tion of official returns. Those who are
disfranchised by acts of Congress are
also proscribed under this Constitution.
Out of 98 members of the Convention,
only 6 voted against its adoption, and
one under protest-WV. Jasper Black
burn, of Claiborne.
There are registered, according to of
ficial promulgation, 127,639 voters in
this State-of which number 82,007 are
colored and 44,732 plain, giving' the
former a majority of 37,775. In 1860,
the State polled 50,517 votes. There
are. we suppose, about 6,000 disfran
chised, and equally as many more who
were entitled to register, but refused to
do so. The number of blacks registered
is undoubtedly largely in excess of the
real voting population, but this deficien
cy will be more than made up by whites
who will vote the Radical ticket. With
the lights-or rather, darkness-before
us, and the military over nd--taking
Alabama as a precedent-we are forced
to candidly admit we see no prospect of
defeating the ratification of that odious
measure. Simultaneously, candidates
for various offices are being balloted for,
who to secure their election will exert
every imaginable influence ts secure its
ratification, inasmuch as their success or
defeat depends altogether upon its fate.
It is evidently the intention of the re
maining portion of a once legal Con
gress to force the Southern States in
this disruptured Union, under Radical
misrule, whether the Constitution is rat
ified or not. If the new destruction 1I
-providing that only a majority of the
votes polled is sufficient for ratification
-becomes a law, rejection would be out
of the question, as a sufficient number
of whites have been disfranchised to
place the blacks, and the Radical whites,
largely in the ascendancy. If said bill
should not become a law, rejection would
not be so difficult, as then, all good
Conservative citizens could remain quiet
ly at home, and their not voting would
count as if they had voted against the
Constitution. But even then, it is ques
tionable whether the same objects would
not be accomplished by our opponents.
If seems as though we have drifted too
far out upon the current to again reach
the shore in safety-if we remain inac
tive, we are engulfed beneath the mad
waves of fanaticism; if we attempt to
reach a haven of safety from the impen
ding storm, a doom equally as destruc
tire awaits us.

The Tenare of OLee Law.
As everybody will likely want. to read
the tenure of office law, in order to learn
wherein President Johnson has offend
ed, if he has offended at all, we publish
the law, which is as follows:
SECTION 1. Persons holding or ap
pointed to any civil office by and with
the advice and consent of the Senate,
shall be entitled to hold such office until
a successor shall have been in like man
ner appointed and duly qualified. The
secretaries of state, of the treasury, of
war, of navy, and of the interior, the
postmaster general and the attorney
general, shall hold their offices respec
tively for and during the term of the
president by whom they may have been
appointed and for one month thereafter,
subject to removal by and with the ad
vice and consent of the Senate.
SEC. 2. When civil officers, excepting
judges of the United States courts,
shall, during a recess of the Senate, be
shown, by evidence satisfactory to the
president, to be guilty of misconduct in
office, or for any reason shall become
incapable or legally disqualified to per
form his duties, in such case the presi
dent may suspend such officer and de
Ssignate some suitable person to perform
temporarily the duties of such office
until the next meeting of the Senate,
and until the case shall be acted upon by
the Senate. Such persons shall take
the oaths and give the bonds required
by law. In such case it shall be the da
ty of the president, within twenty days
after the meeting of the Senate, to re
port to the Senate such suspension, with
the evidence and reasons for his action
in the case, and the name of the person
so designated to perform the duties of
such office. If the Senate concurs the
president may remove the officer and
appoint a successor. If the Senate does
not concur the suspended officer resumes
his office, and receives again the official
salary and emoluments. The president,
in case he shall become satisfied that
the suspension by him of a civil officer
war made on insufficient grounds, shall
be authorized, at any time before re
porting the suspension to the Senate, to
revoke the suspension and reinstate the
officer in the performance of the duties
of his office.
SEC. 3. The president shall have pow
er to fill all vacancies which may hap
pen during the recess of the Senate, by
reason of death or resignation, by grant
ing commissions which shall expire at
the end of their next session. And if
no appointment, by and with the advice
and consent of the Senate, shall be
made to such office so vacant or tempo
rarily filled during the next session of
the Senate, the office shall remain in
abeyance, without any salary, fees or
emoluments attached thereto, until it
shall be filled by appointment there, by
and with the advice and consent of the
Senate; and during such time all the
powers and duties belonging to the of
flee shall be exercised by such other offi
cer as may by law exercise such powers
and duties in case of a vacancy in such
SEC. 4. No term of office, the duration
of which is limited by law, shall be ex
tended by this act.
SEC. 5. Persons accepting or exercis
ing office contrary to this act are de
clared to be guilty of a high misdemean
or, and upon trial and conviction there
of, shall be lpunished by a fine not ex
ceeding $10,000. or by imprisonment not
exceeding five years, or both.
SEC. 6. Every removal, appointment,
or employment, made, had or exercised,
or contrary to the provisions of this act,
and the making, signing, sealing, coun
tersigning, or issuing of any commis
sion or letter of authority for or in re
spect to any such appointment or em
ployment, are declared to be high misde
meanors, and, upon trial and conviction
thereof, persons guilty thereof shall be
punished by a fine not exceeding $10,
000, or by imprisonment not exceeding
five years, or both; provided, that the
president shall have the power to make
out and deliver, after the adjournment
of the Senate, commissions for all offi
cers whose appointment shall have been
advised and consented to by the Senate.
SEc. 7. It shall be the duty of the sec
retary of the Senate, at the close of each
session, to deliver to the secretary of
the treasury, and to each of his assis
tants, and to each of the auditors and

ry, and to the treasurer, and to the reg
ister of the treasury, a full and complete
list, duly certified, of all the persons
who shall have been nominated to and
rejected by the Senate during such ses
sion, and a like list of all the offices to
which nominations shall have been
made and not counfirmed and filled at
such session.
SEC. 8. The president shall notify the
secretary of the treasury when he has
made an appointment to office without
the consent of the Senate; and it shall
be the duty of the secretary of the treas
ury thereupon to communicate such no
tices to all the proper accounting and
disbursing officers of his deportment.
SEC. 9. No money shall be paid or re
ceived from the treasury, or paid or re
ceived from or retained out of any pub
lic moneys or funds of the United States,
