U in but duo lo truth to snV knd
wo admit it with sorrow that for
the) past three years crime has boon
too prevalent lu our ntato ana we
doom it tho primary duty ol all good
citiaeua to ;ivo Uioir hearty au

amount oi criino anu unjusiiy auu
falsely attributing it to tho Conser
vative party ot the btato and to tho
disloyal diHiiosition of our pooplo
and personal animosity to irecuraen
and white radicals.
Tho truo causeH of tho crcnt in
creuso of crime in the Stato ol Texas
aro patent lo every honest mind nnd
will bo readily appreciated when
Btatod. Wo ot our porsonui kuowi
edge aro familiar with tho facts and
causes of ullcged crimes in many
cases and very rarely it over have
political differences hud anything
whatever to do with originating
or perpetuating these uhiiciiiiioh ;
and in this conclusion w.o are borno
out by tho testimony of tho most
reliable uienibers of thin Convention
from (liM'erunt portions of tho State
who bear unbroken testimony to tlio
fact that no one has within their
knowledge been proscribed porso-
cuted or molested for political opin
ions. Wo aimuuto tho increase ot
crime iu our tilalo to tho following
1. Tho general ' demoralization
resulting from tlio war unci tho ab
sence of any government civil or
military for months after tho con"-
clusion of the war and the disband-
mentofa largo number of Confod-
orato and Federal soldiery in our
midst thus suddenly releasing them
from military restraint and being
without tlio chocks ot civil law to
restrain them. In this social and
civil condition it is not surprising
that personal feuds and animosities
should be engendered and that out
rages against persons and. property
should bo frequent.'' .
2. These disorders have boon in
creased by taking from tlio civil au-
thorities in many instances and lo-
calities tho execution of tho laws
without supplying a sufficient sub-
stitnto for such authority. .
3.' Much of tho" .lawlessness and
ctimo in tho Stato has resulted from
tho inefficiency of tho judicial and
ministerial -officers appointed by
tho military authorities of this State.
Many of those bffieors are not only
corrupt ignorant nnd ' inefficient
but having no acquaintance orpym-
Eathy witji the people they have
oen notoriously derelict In tho dis-
charge of thoir duties. In many
of 'the counties tho.intelligont class
of tho peoplo have boon excluded
from service on tho juries and nono
but negroes or such white persons
as could subscribe to the most rigid
tost oaths who in almost every in-
stance belong to the . inferior class
of citizens have been permitted to
sorvo on juries. r. Before such juries
it has been almost impossible ' to
procure a conviction for 'offences
which has greatly tended to incroaso
crimo In; rthe State.- By reference
to the report Qf Caldwell it will bo
seen that ho states with how much
truth we are not prcparod to say that
only 402 oHicos in this State are held
by military appointees.-.'' This may
be true but the unfair inference
Lwhich it was intended to convey
should bo exposed. Of these mili-
tary appointees nearly all of them
hold toe most important qmccs in
tbo State. All of the District
torneys nearly all of the Chief Jus
tices and a largo number y the Su-
preme Judges aro military appoin-
tees. These men aro interpreters
of the laws and tho conservators of
the peaco and upon them devolves
the punishment and the suppression
of crime ; add to these tho Governor
of the Slate and it will bo seen that
ia truth the government is in the
hands of the military' and radical
appointees. By reference to the
same reporj it will be son that it is
stated that tho following number of
homicides bavo been perpetrated in
Texas since the conclusion of the
war viz; 186577; I860 142; 1867
331 ; 18C8 301. Got. Tease took
his seat-as military governor of the
Stale in August 167 and very soon
thereafter anon his recommend-1
tii;n the removal of incumbent offi-
eers crunmctieed and military ap-
pointmcnts were made to fill the
vacancies. It will locn that nrxn

which liiey cannot iNu-aHby ex parte

muses of such increase of crime.
4. Another fruitful source ol crime
licveand chargo it to have beetl tfio
workofluae iiolllioal design. In
soino of lhcs.0 instances tho rashness
of tho ncirrocB in attacking the om
cor. in the dischargo of their duties
has ltrocinitated a conflict which hits
resulted in tho death of sotlto of
tlidtn. In every instanco tho wiiito
pooplo anxious to avoid an dincui-
ty have actod with tho greatest
furbearanco only resorting to torco
whon attacked or when noccessary
to preservo order and protoct iho
oQlcors of tho law and themselves
from violence. As illustrative of
tho truth of this we refer to tho
late riotous and unprovoked demon
stration at Houston Hempstead
Milican Waco and in the counties of
Washington; r recstone and fulls.
Wo have thus griofly and goncrally
referred to thocouscs of the increase
of crimo and lawlessncs In tho Stato
of Texas. Theso goncrul sta'tcmonts
aro based on facts detailod to'your
committee from tho most reliable
sources nnd known to all. To state
theso facts in detail our limited
timo forbids! Wo could-giro many
nstances but loo well known to all
of tho Convention of tlio most honi-'
ous murders porpctratod upon por-
bous of Southern proclivities by red-
oral soldiers and in many instances
undortho sanction of military offi
cers of which no notice has been ta
ken by tho authorities and tlio offon.
dors have ouenpeed puniahmont thus
far. In support of this wo rofor to
tlio following instances: In tho
town of Soguin a crazy negro was
baj-notcd by soldiers whilo tiod to a
tree. Tho Messrs. Burns futhor
and son wore called from their bods
at midnight and shot by Fcdofal
soldiers and thoir house set on nre
Dr. Parkor a conservative negro.
was shot and killed in Caldwell
county by Lientonant Pluraer with
out provocation. JJr. Cunningham
Was taken lrom the hotel at Gon
zales at midnight and murdered
and that by Federal soldiers with-
putprovocalion. Wo could instance
many more such outrages. Had
fjudgo Caldwoll desired to arrive at
tho truth and had his report been
published for other -than political
cnds ho might havo renorted theso
and many others of alike character
in the State. Such 'however was
not his purpose. Tho wholo object
and tenor of his report filled as it is
with misrepresentations and unjust
and dishonest inferences Was to
roach some base political end and
accomplish some socrct design for
the further oppression of tho people
of the Stato and if possiblo her sub-
jugation to the radical rule. ' . .
Your committee solemnly dony
that radicals white or black have
not freedom of speech or that
thore is any systematic effort to
resist the laws among the peoplo of
the State or to persecute radicals
white or black from the State as is
charged in tho report. Nor is it
dangerous as stated by Judgo Cald-
woll in his report for membert of
thef presont constitutional Conven-
tion to return to their counties.
We know of no such instance nor
can we from strict enquiry hoar of
any such except such as are afraid
to meet the logal -consequence of
their criminal acts by a return to
thoir- counties. ' We hnvo already
referred to the unfairness and mis-
representation of Judge Caldwell's
liuiiiiklrution of hi

correctness ot our conclusions we
refer to a report oflhe proceedings
of the Austin Convention of the 6th

Crime exhibit to any member who
may call for. it tho evidence on
which their report-is based: The

Death of an Irish Novel Int.
From the Now York Evening Post July 0
A cnblo dispatoh- announces ll)o
death of Samuel Lover tho well
known Irish nov'brist; Artist song-
writer and lecturer at the age of
Mr. L'dvor was born in Dublin- in-
1797'. and was brought up in a conv-
morcial bouse: but- finding business
an uncongenial pursuit he gave it
up and adopted tbat .ot literature
Mr. Lovor however not only wrote
well both in prose and verso sang
big own 'songs with . unction and
taste and lectured in an otf-hand
dashing way upon topics more or
less humorous: but bo also painted
with no moan skill and somo-of his
miniatures were exhibitod in the
Royal Academy of London to which
metropolis be soon after -removed
and began his litorary career" as a
contributor to tho journals and ma-
gasines.' lo wroto the attractive and wide-
ly known songs of "Rory O'More"
"Tho Angel's - Whisper" "Molly
Bswn" and "The Four-leaved Sham
rock besides many othersxt scarce
ly less popularity. - Mr. Lover also
wrote several capital insn novels
including the inimitable chronicle
of "Handy Andy "Treasure
Trove'! and "Rory O'Moro". which
he dramatized from his song of tbat
name. 'Mr. Lovor came to this
country some years since and deliv
ered a series ot semi-humorous lec
tures intcrspersod with his songs
which were very entertaining as
well as peculiarly successful.
Id 1856 the Kritish Government
awarded him a pensiod of one hun-
dred pounds a year -since which
time he has lived in retirement
though not altogether in idleness
as he has from timo to time given
the publio something from his Pen
through the columns of tho English
periodicals. ' fin private lifo Mr.
Lover was a good specimon of the
genial Irish gcrlticman.'

conflict With tho Constitution.' and
thut Congress has ho more power
to reioct thoir Votes than those Of
tho states which have been unilorm-
ly loyal to tho federal Union. Il is
worthy of remark that if tho States
whoso inhabitants woro recently In

therefore must bo derived from tho
governments instituted beforo that
period? It clearly follows that all
tho Bt.ito governments organised in
thoso States tinder net of Congress
for that purposo and nnder military
control aro illegitimate and of no
validity whatever and1 in that view
tho vutvs cast In thoso States for
President and Vico President ahd
in purstinnco of nets passed since
llio 4th -March 1867 and in obedt
onco to tho so-called reconstruction
acts of Congress cannot bo legally
received and counted.' Whilo tho
only-votes in thosb States that con
bo legally cast ahd counted will bo
tlioso cast in pursuance of tho laws
in'forco in tho soveral States' prior
to the legislation by Congress upon
tho subject of reconstruction.
Tho President proceeds to ttrguo
that whilo tho peoplo in tho boulh-
crn States woro not in rebellion
somo peoplo of tho Northern States
woro in rebellion and that tho net
for exclusion applies logically equal-
ly to Now York and Virginia.
Tho mossngo concludes that if
Congress wcro to' provido by law
that tho votes of noiio of tho StaCes
should be rccoivod and countod if
cast for a candidate who differs in
boliticnl sentiment with a minority
1 K v
of tho two HoimoB such legislation
Would at onco bo condomncd by tho

political preference of a majority of

political preference of a majority of
Congress. Jtfo power exists in' the

The only differences being the one
would be more palpably unconstitu-
tional and revolutionary than the
other. Both would rest upon the
radical error that Congress has the

tions to the right of the people of tho
