The New Orleans IHeayune, apeaking
of the necessity of some national senti-
inent to unite the whole country in
one harmonious purpose, remarks:
The South, we Itelleve. is for its part ready
t«> make every reasonable concession to de-
monstrate its loyalty to the one groat purpose
of the Union, in return it asks only common
justice and reciprocal good will. It will be
true to the Union if the Union will be true to
it 1 «ct the uominatiug couvuntious which are
to meet »t Cincinnati and St. Louis bear this
in mind. l*ot them give us candidates whose
record gives assurance .not of partisan fidelity,
but «»f devotion to the great fundamental
principles of the government established by
the fathers of the constitution, and, whatever
the result, we pledge a peaceable acceptance
and hearty support on the part of our people.
We can never arrire at the desired
diminution of sectionalism from poli-
ties by starting upon the assumption
that there are scrtional divisions, more
or 1<antagonistic and warring towards
one another or towards the Union,
which must lie recognized in politics
and somehow reconciled. If the as-
sumption is fallacious, the tlrst step to-
wards getting the people of the United
States blended in community of nation-
al sentiment is to stamp-out the fallacy.
If it is not fallacious, the task is self-
evident ly hopeless. For our part, we
can not tell what meaning now attaches
to the word South, or to the word
North, as a distinctive political expres-
sion. Wo can not see, for example, that
Texas and Kentucky have any peculiar
interests and institutions in com-
mon as Southern States. or
that New York and Illinois have
any peculiar interests and institu-
tions in common as Northern States.
We are nevertheless aware that dema-
gogues and bigots, on the one hand and
the other, have constituted a most per-
nicious power of ignorance and noise
by declaiming about the South and the
North as though they were two sepa-
rate counttics in mere geographical
contiguity, not in constitutional cohe-
sion. There is but one way to com-
bat this mischief successfully. It is
to ignore both South and North.
It is to assume that there is
no set of States bearing a sectional de-
signation which have anything to con
cede in testimony of their loyalty to the
Union, nnd that there is no set of States
bearing a sectional designation which
have a right in that character to demand
concessions of any kind from any other
States. Let the people of the country
at large come to a quiet understanding
oil this footing, and the baneful reign of
ignorance and noise will be at end, and
t he demagogues and bigots of sectional
discord will howl and rant in vain.
The Moral of Fitzhngh.
It really seems har.l that the author
of the ingenuous letter descriptive of
oilicinl grandeur and beatitude at Wafih-
ingion, which has tilled half a continent
with laughter, should have to defend
himself against "charges of arson, theft,
perjury and blackmailing." He lias ex-
culpated himself entirely, we arc told,
"but his unfortunate letter remains."
Well, ought not litis incomparable effu-
sion to have set him in the tlrst place
above vulgar attnek, as an object sacred
to philosophical curiosity and analysis?
To thoughtful contemplation the letter
ischielly interesting as far as it gives, in
an unconscious and guile lees way, a
glimpso of the true inwardness of con-
temporary politics. We can believe
that the Democratic majority in the
Mouse of Representatives are ashamed
of the ludicrous aspect in which Door-
keeper Fit/.hngh is presented. It is
something to their credit that they are
not callous to the satire implied in the
spectacle. But it would lie infinitely
more to their credit if they were heartily
ashamed of the system of official patron
age of which Mr. Fit/.hugh, in his vain
and boastful garrulity, is only a gro-
tesque personification. As a repre-
sentative of this unprincipled en
gine of party warfare and party rule,
lie could say tlrnt he was " bigger than
old Grant" and still keep within the
bounds of credibility. Grant, in the
early stage of his presidential career,
proposed to take executive patronage
from the hands of the politicians and
dispose of it under regulations suggested
by some of the enthusiasts of civil ser
vice reform, who had persuaded him
that he might thus gain a peculiar and
lasting glory for his administration.
Hut, with all his obstinacy, he proved
no match for a system which could
cause a previously unpretending person
on Itecoming one of its favorites
and not an eminent one cither, to
feel, in an experience of only
a few weeks, that he was
lord, a power in the land, a bigger nun
than the President himself. Is it won
derful that principles and policies Sink
into Mihordinate places in the presence
of such a system? Is it rather not won
derful that they should receive any con
sideration at the hands of parties who
engage in a periodical struggle for the
privilege of distributing the patronage
of the government? Politicians can af
ford to have no defined opinions on cur
rent questions of public policy, when
the real stake in the political game is
the power lodged with an army of of
lice-holders. Is it not time for the in
tclligcnt and patriotic voting masses to
demand from all parties an uncondi
tional pledge to abolish a system which
continually operates to make the most
sordid considerations the controlling in
flaence in'politicsV So much for the
moral of Door keeper Fit/.hugh.

What «e- THE NEWS FROM AUSTIN.
The Legislature, April 24, 1871,
passed a law, levying a tax of seven-
eighths of one per cent, for support of
public free schools. rl he act was
thought to be unconstitutional and pay-
ment was resisted in different sections
of the State. The then Supreme Court,
when the causes came up for a hearing
before it, held that the law was in
accordance with the constitution and
that the tax must be collected.
A number of suits were instituted in
Galveston county, under ruling of the
Supreme Court, by District Attorney
Gresham, and tire sum of $74,1)9!) 1)4 100
collected, and paid into the county
treasury. DeGress, who was Superin-
tendent of Public Instruction under the
administration of Gov. Davis, brought
suit to get possession of the fund that
had bcon collected, but only a part of
the colloctious passed through the
hands of the directors or trustees of tiie
Of the whole amount paid into the
county treasury by the District Attor-
ney, summing up $74,909 94, Col. Pat-
toy, one of the trustees, expended in
support of the schools $8430 97-100.
The balance, f6C,578 97-100, was ex-
pended by Gen. Waul, who was Presi-
dent of the Board of School Directors,
and Col. Yard, who was one of the
trustees of the schools for Galveston
In March, 1873, the present Supreme
Court decided against the constitution-
ality of the law of April, 1871, and no
collections for account of the school tax
of seven-eighths of one per ccnt. have
l>con made since that decision was ren-
dered, and no money from this source
was expended after the decision of the
old court was reversed.
An effort will, no doubt, be made dur-
ing the present session of the Legislature
to get the amount paid under the tlrst
decison of the Supreme Court refunded.
It is a matter that can only be done by
legislative sanction, and it remains to
lie seen whether that can be obtained.

Proceeding* of the Convention at
Richmond, May 15.—In the Southern
Baptist Convention to-day, Professor N.
K. Davis, of the University of Virginia,
presented a report on Italian Missions.
The report congratulates the conven-
tion on the hopeful condition of the
mission. There are, besides the church
at Rome, eight Italian churches at
other points. " The report would have
the convention instruct the board on
two points: 1st, There must be no cur-
tailment of work of the board, but an
enlargement as far as possible; 2d,
means should be taken at once to double
the Rome chapel fund by earnest efforts
within and without the convention. t
The report approves the wisdom of
the board in the management of this
fund, but would urge that the time has
arrived when the fund should be com-
pleted and the chapel built.

necessity, but approving the policy of

New Orleans, May 15.—A New Or
leans Times special, dated Summit, Mis-

here last night of a row between lie
groes and whites at Laurel Hill, West
Feliciana parish, near the Mississippi
line, on Friday night. About thirty
negroes went to the store of a white
man in this vicinity, called him
to the door and riddled him with
bullets. A posse from Bayou Sara went
out on Saturday for the body. . The ne-
groes would not give it up and a light
ensued. Three negroes were killed and
two white men are missing. The ne-
groes are gathering; 1100 are said to bo
under arms. Whites are going down
from neighboring counties in Missis
sippi. A serious fight is expected.
A spccial to the Republican, from
Bayou Sara, La., says: This is what 1
consider as reliable as to the result of
Saturday night's doings: Eight colored
men have been shot dead, four hanged
and about twenty wounded. No whites
killed. Persons just from the scene
report sixty blacks killed, but
that statement I consider exag
gerated. Twenty eolored men are
reported to be held as prisoners, and
tlioir fhtc is uncertain, but the supposi
tion is that they will be killed. Also,
that the number of negroes killed will
never be ascertained.. Precautions have

Bayou Sara, to-day:
"In reply.to your telegram, I have
to say that seventeen colored men were
killed, and many wounded, on the line
of Mississippi and Louisiana. A large
number of armed white men are ap-
proaching this town. I can not sum-
mon and secure a posse oomitatuslor
support of the civil authority, and sup-
pression of the evils and prevention of
further bloodshed. Nothing but mili-
tary authority will keep peace here. I
therefore respectfully request that mili-
tary be placed at my disposal."

THAT POLITICAL CONFERENCE.
Nrw York, May 15.—The Presiden
tial Conference assembled at the Fifth
Avenue Hotel, pursuant to call, Carl
Schurz and others, about three hundred
delegates, being present. Secretary
Lodge called the meeting to order and
read the call. Thco. Woolsey was
elected president, who said for eight or
ten years past the country was growing
politically worse, and strong men of the
Republican party had made the country
to blush with shame, and now thi:
meeting was called to decide what was
best to be done to remedy matters.
Carl Schurz thanked the audience
for such a large attendance. It was a
good sign when the men came forward
and showed their political independ
ence; that every citizen should see that
the party he belonged to is a good one.
None have been invited here but men
not overawed by any party, and such as
are known to have the best interests of
the country at heart. He said they are on
the fence, but it is owing to the vast
quantity of mud on both sides of the
fence, and tlicy arc afraid to' descend
The object of this conference was to
promote and further tho general inter-
ests of the country. On motion of Mr.
Schurz, Park Godwin, Judge Foster,
of Connecticut, Jno. W. Hoyt, of Wis-
consin, Martin Beijamar, of Massachu-
setts, and Carl Schurz were appointed
a committee to draw up some definite
plan of action, and take such other
measures as are deemed necessary.

gle, under these sad and distressing cir-

Parties from New York represent the
feeling there regarding the jetties as en-
tirely confident. Commodore Garrison,
who has been watching their progress,
with a view of placing a line of steam-
ships between New Orleans and Brazil,
liaa made no halt in his preparations.
Dom Pedro has" been approached, and
there are assurances that his govern-
ment will pay onc-lialf of what may be
necessary to carry mail, and move
mentsare on foot to secure a contingent
contract from our government for car
rying the mails.
The Attorney-General informed coun-
sel for McKee and McGuire that lie will
recommend that the law take its own
New Orleans Rascality.
Maj. Seelye was before Gen. Gibson's
committee to investigate Federal offices
in New Orleans. He refused to testify
regarding payrolls in the Custom-house,
as he would criminate himself.
A resolution was adopted directing
the chairman to apply to the Attorney
General for a paper like that issued in
the case of Wliitcly in the safe burglary
investigation. He testified freely on
Among other things he testified that
thore was a defalcation of $68,000 in
the New Orleans postoffice during Low-
ell's administration. Lowell, his deputy
and cashier were arrested and held in
$10,000 each. Lowell turned over to
his bondsman about $20,000 worth of
property, which, however, was after
wards returned to him. The defalca
tion was finally compromised for $7000.
Morey told witness the easiest way to
settle the matter was to steal the bond,
and requested witness to do it. There
were a number of bondsmen, who were
assessed some $2000 each to secure
Seelye testifies that Jeanette, then
Commissioner of the Circuit Court
gave him a warrant in Morey's district
against twenty men. Morey erased the
names of all but four, whom he in
structed Seelye to take to Monroe and
keep them in jail till after the election.
A warrant was also given Seelye for
Isaac Newton Glover. Verbal instruc-
tions were given Seelye in the presence
of Jeanette; he was to take him into
the woods and kill him. Glover was
not arrested l>ecause a writ of liabeas
corpus required Seelye to remain with
other prisoners, which writ he did not
obey. Seelye says he did not intend to
kill Glover, but left Morey under the
impression that he would do it.
Infantry and cavalry in the district
moved by Morey s direction. He fur
nished a list of his appointments and
ordered troops to be at such points the
day before he spoke as he was afraid to
go without such a guard.
Seelye sold to Morey his orders and
telegrams for $200 cash and five notes of
$100 each, two of which were paid, two
overdue and one not yet matured
Seelye retained copies.
The testimony was scattering, but the
witness claims that he has memoranda
by which he can tell perfectly connect
ed stories, time and place, etc.
Judge Wilson appeared for Morey
who was also present, and wished ap
plication postponed until after they had
examined Seelye. The case should be
decided by tlie courts. If Seelye se
cured a safeguard, Morey would be
without means of proving him
infamous. Morey will be heard
to-morrow. The committee have
rescinded the resolution to depart for
New Orleans to-morrow. Major Seely
was special agent of the postoffice de-
partment and afterwards Deputy Uni
ted States Marshal.
General Morey expresses himself
confident of pYoving not only that
Major Seelye has committed perjury
but that he has approached friends of
Morey's with propositions to give such
testimony as might be required for
certain sum of money, which proposi
tion was declined and the money which
Morey paid to Seelye • was paid to
avoid the prejudice that would result
from Seelye's false statements, and
would affect the contest that was pend
ing for Morey's seat. That Morey -re-
fused to pay him anything after the
committee decided his case, and wrote
to him he would prosecute him for
blackmailing if he annoyed him fur-
