THE POUTIClLITUATIOJLi tcM;
In a doubleJeaded editorial the Louis

ation stf forcibly and so clearly that we
will be thanked for reproducing a great
part of the article. After the remark
that it is one thing to assert a principle
earnest); an another . thing Vto
proceed to unwise, or illegal lengths i in
the execution, of that principle, the
"The Democratic party insists that
certain laws which it finds upon the
statute books ought to be removed. It
removes them by act of Congress, and
sends these acts to the Presidentfor his
approval. ' They fail to meet it, and are
returned with his objections. The Dem
ocrats lack the two-thirds majority nec
essary to set aside the veto of the Pre
sident, and consequently have nothing
left them but an appeal to the country.
Thus far all parties are within the
terms of the constitution, and the issue
is squarely joined. Each party, having
made its record, rests upon the justice
of its cause, and goes to the people for
"The position of the Democratic party
i4 wholly anomalous. In spite of much
misleading and many blunders, it has
steadily, moved up to a majority in the
two houses of Congress, because, in the
first place, the scheme of reconstruc
tion sought to be carried by the Repub
licans was untenable ; and, second, be
cause the corruptions and excesses of
the two Grant administrations made
the North indifferent to the break-up of
the Radical fabric in the South. ; There
is no doubt that the policy of forbear
ance after the election of the Demo
cratic presidential ticket in 1876 great
ly strengthened the hold upon the con
fidence of the country which better
guiding had secured for the party under
the leadership of Mr. Tilden ; and it
may be safely declared that, if the De
mocrats had quietly settled down upon
the issue raised by the Republicans in
the electionat tribunal, resolving to seat
the individual fraudulently excluded by
the action of that tribunal from the of
fices to which they had been chosen, the
political spectacle now presented would
be exactly reversed.
"Extremism in the long run rarely
pays anywhere. But with a people such
as ours, it can only maintain -itself by
fits and starts. The' power and prestige
of the Republican party, come out of a
gigantic military struggle entirely vic
torious, were able to maintain the ex
tremes oapopular leader like . Thad
deus Stevens but a single decade. It is
not conceivable -that an imitation of
this by the Democrats, handicapped as
they are, could by any possibility suc
ceed. Its only effect is to consolidate
the North; and the sooner the counsels
of Senator Bayard, who has shown
himself most sagacious and most
courageous among Democratic leaders,
ara followed, and followed obediently,
the better for the party.
"On each of the issues upon w hich
our appear from the President's vetoes
may be taken, we have the Republicans
at a disadvantage. It is only wlien we
imitate the domineering spirit of the
Republicans themselves that we are
placed at a disadvantage. This we can
not afford, and, therefore, as soon a3 we
have exhausted our constitutional pre
rogatives, we should pass tire appropri
aLion bills and go ' to tft'e'cpnntry.

"The violence of the Republicans-iras
baen artfully contrived tQ excite us to
violence, and it has been top successful
We feel it in ourselves and we see it in
others; -and it is time to; put a. stopper
upon the steam whistle:,The dog days
are upon us and we m list act, not alk.
Those who wish to shine as performers
on the calliope should be sent sum
marily below. The Republicans are
caught in the frap- they set for us and

yntfhe recent 'colored convention at
Richmond, Virginia, ; decided that the
race issue should be the. absorbing one;
so far as they .are" concerned in that
State. It was declared , that the .State
should be organized on the race issue
and that, to aid in its triumph,' the col
ored people must form into : secret or
ganizations. That was the plan adopt
ed by the colored .people of the South
during what 'is.. known as the recon
struction periods The .result, of- that
scheme should deter the colored people
from attempting another of like kind.
It appears that some of the stalwarts
propose to keep npj the irrepressible
conflict." The Indianapolis Journal
thus states it : "The civilization of the
South is essentially feudal and retro
gressive; that of the North is modern,
American and progressive. These two
systems cannot permanently co-exist
The conflict between them is inherent,
inevitable, and must go on till one or
the other shall triumph. There may be
no more war or bloodshed, but the con
flict will go on until it shall be settled
on the enduring principles of right.

Cox moved to increase the appropria

A discussion ensued after which Cox's

SPOFFORD AND KELLOGG AGAIN.
The Senate committee on privileges
and elections resumed the examination
of witnesses in the Spofford-Kellogg
case. The first witness, examined was
Wm. Johnson DeLacy, a mulatto, who
was the member from Rapides Parish
of the Legislature that elected Kellogg.
An affidavit was shown witness pur-
Eorting to have been signed by witness
efore Judge Puisson, in which he states
that Smith, who was afterwards collec
tor of New Orleans, threw an envelope
on his desk, sealed, and that he opened
it and found it to contain money. Also
that members had been offered -from
$200 to $250 for their votes, and that
several who had been so promised had
ot nothing and that he himself got
200 for voting for Kellogg. Witness
denied the signature and the body of
the affidavit in his handwriting. Wit
ness had previously denied that he had
received any money for voting for Kel
logg. The affidavit will be used to con
Welsey testified to making affidavit
in New Orleans at the suggestion of
Ward, acting for Spofford, in which he
alleged an attempt at bribery for voting
for Kellegg. Witness did vote for Kel
logg but never received money. After
wards witness received $500 for him
self and Drew, his colleague. The
money came from Robertson, a
Democratic Senator, through Dimas, as
agent. Spofford had a sufficient num
ber of votes to elect before DeLacy and
his 15 or 20 comrades were bought up,
but the argument used was 'that Spof
ford wanted every Republican member
to vote in order to avoid any cavil in
Washington as to his title. Witness
had never before seen the affidavit be
fore the committee. It was signed
"DeLacey." , lie spells his name "De
Lacy,'' and' claims to be a grandson of
Sir Hugh DeLacy, of Ireland. Charles
Cavanoc identified the affidavit in evi
dence as one signed by DeLacy and
sworn to before a magistrate. Thos.
Murray was re-called and swore that
DeLacy told him fifteen minutes before
going on the stand that he would swear
to the affidavit. Adjourned.
A WITNESS ARRESTED.
Joseph J. Johnson, "one of the wit
nesses in support of Kellogg's case was
to-day arrested charged with commit
ting perjury by swearing falsely before
said committee, among other things
that he did not dictate a single line or
word in the affidavit that was offered
in evidence before that committee.
THE LEGISLATIVE BILL AND FITZ JOTIN
The House committee met. to-day,
but did not conclude the consideration
of the appropriation bills. A meeting
will be held Monday, when it is expect
ed that the legislative bill will be com
pleted and reported to the House for
passage. No contest will arise on this
bill, as no political measures are at
tached to it.
