But through salutary changes 'of the Consti

The present conitutinn is loose, illogical,
contradictory and absurd in many ol iu provis
ions, and it wtrejivell if it could' be entirely re
wriite but this id tMt practicable by the iegis
fative nnxle of amendment. Action will be

tamv particulars, for the present, aud leaving
gonentl'niendnient to a future time.
lit the judgment of the KxecutiveComniittee,
the constitution nhoiild at once be amended in
the following; particulars: !
Seetipn 6 of Article 1 should be so amended
as to strike ont ail thereof that provides the t'art
lubilily of the public debt. ' j
Section 2 of Article 2 should be so anieqded
as to provide that the Legislature shall meet
regularly every two years, instead of everv vear.
and it should be jirovided that the.members of
the legislature shall receive $3.00 per day and
10 cnts mileage, and such pay for no longer a
Ieni jhan 100 days during theif term of ViiTice.
The office of Superintendent of Public Works
should be abolished. ; j
Article 3, Sect ion 1, should be so amended as
the Governor. !aud other (ifficers therein int-n-tionid
shall hold their officlts but two vearts. in
stead of femr years, a now provided.
Seetipn 10 of Article 3 sliould be so amended
as to provide that the Governor shall iioniiiiniM
the offi-ers therein mentioned, by and with the !
u..ivv mm mimcm ui inc cjcuuie, unless omer-wi-e
provided by law.

Section 6 of article 5 should le so amended

' Article 14 section 7, should be so amended
as to providl that no person shall hold any lu
crative oflice under this State while he hohls an
office under the United Slates.
Section 5 of article 2, should be so amended
as to abolishj the provision for taking a census
of the ijiate in 1875, and every ten years there
after.! , . . !
We would; suggest as a further amendment,
that sec. 5 of art. 9. be so amended as to nrovidw
fthat the University shall be under the control
of the General Assembly,whoshall elect a board
of trustees, ol wlueu the Governor shall be ex
officio cliainnan.'anil fee. tlons 13 and 14 of that
article should be stricken out.
Other amendments should be made, but those
suggested, would relieve the people from the
burdensi.me and extravagant State government
that now swallows np their earnings, and fast
ens upon them a Slate debt which they cannot
pay, but of hieh they may easily so compro
mise and adjust the honest portion, as will re
duce it within manageable limits.
We deem' it worth while to notice in this ad
dress, that wicked and interested persons tin
principled and violent radical partizans in and
out pf thU State for sinister purjioses, have
sought) to produce tlie false impression that the
Democratic Conservative party have and elo
connive, at and encourage tlie perpetration of
crmie and outrage. To this detestable end they
have, wherever they could, prostituted the press,
legislative and judicial proceedings, and resort
ed to every . : means within their power. Such
imputation not only groundless, falseand slan
derous, but infamous to the last degree, and be
trays a spirit of wickwluess, we venture to as
sert, without a parallel in political warfare.
The party which we represent has always and
P r-L-ie.itly to.idemncd trim?, by whomsoever
perpetrated, and has repeatedly gone out of the
usual political course to denounce it, and urge
upon the people the high importance of peace
and good order, and the duty of every good cit-i
jzen to be. active "and zealous in bringing of
fenders i to justice. s
The course piirsued by the unworthy persons
to whom we refer is deeply to be deplored by
all good men of, every polititial party. It is not
onlv ignoble, bin it tends to dosiroy the moral
and legitimate effect of the Voice of the press,
Icgislatif e action and judicial determination,
for the suppression of crime their constant ef
fort is to turn such matters to political advan
tage by giving Uicm a jxlitical turn, and thus
they produce the almost inevitable conviction
ori the mind.i of disinterested observers that the
purpose of the press, the Legislature and Courts
isnot lpsupprtjcrimeand outrage, bti!to manu
fdctnr! political Capital and advaiHajfe from the'
very crimes of ofl'enden, and thus eugvn Jer lAt4
ter fetling among thcHonfionentjs destroy H
Cdcnce in the Cour a aid bring them into tlLH
grace and Iconicinpfi ii vi -,ci in- .t-n
We again urge our frind lolset (leir faces
agauit violence and lawlcssnem of all kind:
and to be esiWially a'cfive in preventing secret
outrages .by dMguiaed person. i j L i ; i
It is to lie regretted that the people of this
State have failed to take any very a.tive inlcr-i
est itt national jiolities since the clone of the
late war. In our judgment thia w nnwise. Oub
iKH.ple are of the Union it w our rovernm. i.i
and tnitiwe must jiiok, as w'a hay the riehtl
fri .11l,tU..t .? 1 . ...

olic duty to vield theseit is aa much our dutvi
to join our fellow-connlrym.-n in shaping nnci
controlling the policy and iestinvW this great
conmion national government; Ve1iave all
the rights that any of the American pcopbf havej
anil we are false to the country and ourselves
if wJ fail to recognise, exercise and act npon
them,. The people haye rights; Ut tliem ex
ercise them firmly and respectfully, and when
need be, assert them as freemen and American
citizens in the councils of the nation, in politi
cal assemblages, and everywhere. If we con
sent to be dwarfed and ignored nationallv, then
indeed, we may expect toiie for all time to come.
,Our common ctmntry ia subject to grievous
IoHtical'evits'tf which the comjws of 'this ad
dress wi!'. allow us to advert Very bridly,
Officwl corruption - in high nnd. low places ;
public extravagance; usurpation of great pow
ers not confjured, but denied ami prohibited by
the constitution; high and - oppressive tiirirf
f ster iminense monopolies; prostitution of offi
cial patronage to proimae jmrty ascendency ; a
system of taxation which, brings into active ser
vice iii the interests of the parly in power,
hordes of Internal Revenue officers who oppress;
plunder and out rage , the iieople of the nation,
and under which large "surplus sums of money
are raise'd that ought to remain in the pockets
of! the people; a general syMtern of epoiuge;
si suspension of the liberties of ihe eople hkui
the slightest pretext, in express violation of the
const ituti4n; armed military .interference with
the treedom of elections; a general system of
oiaciai oriiK-ry and party favoritism in every
departnunt, and the administration of the af
fairs of the government are public nationalevils,
the enormity, extent; and danger of which can
scarcely be measured or appreciated by the peo
ple subject to them. That these evils" do exist,
is manifest to everybody. The dearest, highest
interests of a free puoule demand thattliev shall
not close their eyes to such dangers too long, "lest
uie time shall come when they will find their
form of government changed in name a well
as ir fact, and their liberties lost.
Most it not all these evils, are attributable to
the liadical or liepublican party of the nation.
to its doctrines, policy and practices. It is
essentially a party inimical and dangrrous to
the constitution and publicand iersonal liberty.
It is founded ujkiii the despotic dogma that there
is a " higher law" than the constitution; it is
emphatically and essentially a "higher law"
party. This dogma i.s it life and bool, and it
proeeeds on the jesuitical maxim, that "the end
justifies the means." Hence it is, the head of
mis party, (he president, does not hesitate to
send the army to New York and elsewhere at
the orlhta tins State, Texas and all over the
South in violatiuu ol the letter aud spirit of the
constitution, to control the elections and pre
pare the way to his and his party's continued
ascendancy, and his own election. Hence, too.
we find him lor like purposes suspending the
wrtioi lutoeu cot-pit in a tune of protound pe-ace,
arresting the ciiizen without warrant or lawful
authority, but only by lawless force. Hence.
