Ilill*, Editor of the Kotr Orient** Hr*i, id the Con*tituiivti Con vention, on the Siavtfif Duration, Mb. Pbesiiib.vt:—In the National Convention of France, lu 17M, a proposition was made u> abolish slavery iu that American colonies be longing to France. A member of that body arose nud proceeded to defend the principles of universal libeity, whereupon he was interrupted by another member, wbe exclaimed: “President! do not suffer the Convention to dishonor itsall by a protracted discussion !*’ It seems to me , that for three days we Isrve been witnesses of s i most extraordinary speetacle. A body of men assembled on mu avowed principles of univer sal freedom—elected on a platform of imme diate emancipation, accepting seats in this body ui'der the proclamation which declared the ■lave laws in Louisians inoperative and void, because they did not apply to any class of per sons m this State—I say, a hotly so elected un der that proclamation nud upon that platform b compelled to listen fur three days, to one of its memtieii standing up here »nd defending the accurst-d system of A tiler-lean slavery as it exis ted before this war. f said in Biy previous re marks, we could not do anything to perpetuate slavery without committing iierjury before God and man. For that remark I have Wen ar raigned here as attempting to menace tide Con vention by some authority of the comnif iding Genera!. 1 repel all aucli insinuations al false and groundless, but I repeat, that in my otyniou, gentlemen, members of this Convention Annul stand up here and argue in favor of slavwy iu any form, without committing moral pwjnry. This is what 1 said, and to that 1 shall adhere. (Applause.) Mr. President, the gentleman from the Fifth District [Mr. Abell] has seen fit to go through a long argument to overthrow my aswrtiou that slavery does not exist iu the State of Louis iana. 1 say that assertion is literally trus, that there is nor u slave iu the State of Louisiaaa to day. There is no slavery, and can be nonehvith out the presence of physical power to elforce the obedience of the slave to Lis master. That is an indispensable element of slavery, w iihout which it cannot exist. 1 ask the gentleman where is the force to-day to compel the labor of the slave m this State? Where is the auction block? where is the lash? where is the power of the master to whip his slave and to euforce his will? The auction block has disap|teared iu the light of tbs new (uviliz ilion that hat dawned upon us; Oie slave marts, when' human Ixings warocrowded together like cattle, thank God, is no more among us; and the lash has been abolished—first by the great law of necessity , and secondly by the proclamation of inilitaay power. It the gentleman thinks slavery still exists; let him attempt to sell a slave within the Federal lines. Suppose he advertise* a slave for sale at auction to-morrow. (>u the way the slave says, “1 wish t* cross the street." He goes, and the gentleman from the Fifth follows and attempts to seize him hy the collar and drag him to the auction; what is the rrsut ? The gentleman from thefifth is arrested for a breach of the peace.commuted tor assault and batiery (laiigh terj alidbroughl into tbecourt, uud uuder the present laws of the State the man lie has at tempted by force to take to ttie auction block stands his equal, as he does in the sight of that almighty law of justice which has overthrown slavery in this State forevermore. (Applause.) There is no slavery here, and never can be. If all the thunder bolts that are supposed to have been hurled by Jove could l>e IT at based gtTgr thrr and discharged at once, Lous' C.mjd not shake the earth enough to awaken from its eternal sleep the care i«s of this miserable institution The gentleman hits at tun pled to justify slavery from the example of the Egyptnuu. 1 admire him for it It is most fitting and projier that the man who stands up in this day and age to justify such a system, should go bock to the Egyptians whose religions altars smoked with human sacrifices, and whose idols were the most gross tud obscene of all the pagan nations of which we have any historical record. 1 intend no durr-j>ect to the gentleman. He is much my senior in age, and my superior in learning; but I say if the gentleman were to die, I should ex pect to see him burial in an Egyptian sarcopha gus, sitli a hieroglyphical inscription upon his toiot), which iff were Jiermitled to suggest, Would fa two words: “Old Bogy.” (Laughter.) Let him if> buck to the Egyptians; that is where slavery belongs, Let hitu go hack to the Unmans and Creeks; that is where it belongs. It be lougt t i the rude ages of mankind, before the light af Christianity and civilization had fallen upon the human family. Has he forgotten that these very men whom he holds up as models for us to follow and copy, had gladiatorial shows, aitd that under their institution* men were thrown into the arena to be devoured by wild beasts? He can justify that as well as slavery. He can just Jy poly gamy by the example of the anoieiit nations, and every other species of vice and crime. Rut 1 supposed we had grown up beyoud thfc Greeks, Romans and Egyptians. 1 thought we were free-tioni aniT enlightened Americans, living in u time of revolution, to be sure, but still adhering to those great laud marks of freedom that were so dear to our ♦ fathers and which, 1 believe, are dear to the ma jority of this Convention. Jfot satisfied with attempting to justify shivery hy the Egy ptians, Iuricvfcs uim uuiuaue, ui- uua uiveUJpitu lo <lu BO by the Scripture* anil Christianity. Now, Mr. President, if yon go back in the ecclesiastical history of the world, you will find every infamy that has been perpetrated, has beeu done in the name of some religion. It is not the first time that men have stolen the livei y of heaven to serve the devil in. How many wars and massa cres have been committed iu the name of Chris tianity ! l>oes that prove that Christianity countenances massacre, butchery, rubbery and crime' Not at all; it only prove* that they were done hypocritically .in iu uauie. If the gentle man w islics to go into an argument in favor of fraud, tic might distort some parts of the Scrip ture to prove it was right. die might take the case of Jacob and l'lsau where the formercljarly swiuilled the latter out of his birthright, to prove that swindling is * proper and div inc in stitution, and ought to be incorporated into the Constitution of Louisiana, which we are here to frame to-day. I am ashamed that any man iu the latter half of the nineteenth century, with so much learning and ability, should spend time iu attempting to make us believe that shivery is iu acoor lance with the precepts of religion. Sir, that Divine living, who came down to teach us the right path, gave us one commandment, one precept, which blasts Ibrever the accursed insti tution of slavery, as itdom h stuau wrong and injustice of every kind: “All things whatsoever ye would Jjhat men should do unto you, do ye cveu so unto them.” 1 say that iu this precept he blast ; I forever this institution of slavery, wjiich is essentially uujust in itself, and fmlltni ill piracy and robbery—a system of violence and usurpation from loginning to end Not satisfied with the Egyptians, Greek*. Ro wans and religion, the gentleman j,;t> LirouajUt to kiss nut thu illuistriuujj names of American II story-th' -e men who founded our institu tion He has told U3 they were slaveholders, but very judiciously has lie refrained from tel ling us what they thought of slavery itself He has referred lo Washington, but forgot .o fell us what was the dearest wish of his heart. Washington said: “fhis is among the first wishes of my heart to see some plan adopted by which slavery iu this country may he ubolislwd by law.” Henry Laurens, of South Carolina wrote to his son, in 177ti: “I abhor slavery” Jefferson has been quoted here. In ipeskin* of the slave lie says: “We must await withi«itience the working of an overruling Providence, and hope that it is preparing the deliverance of these r, our Buffering brethren.” “liretkren,” is the &SS{ word wliich Thomas Jefferson applied to the*e 9 men. "When the measure of their tears is full —when their groans shall have enfolded heaven rV jtself in darkness, the God of Justice wdl awa. Ikeu to their distresses, and by diffusing light 1 anil liberality ae.oug their oppressors, or at least by his exterminating thunder, may mani fest to the wor Id that they are not left to the guidance of blffld fatuity.” Mr. 1*resident, the exterminating thunder ba» eome! The meuiuulatcd wrongs which this people bare helped upon an unfortunate race, brought it down from high Heaven, and it has blasted this aecursed system in l-oui-imua, as it lias blasted it throughout the whole laud. (Ap plause.) Now,I propose to let Mr. Abell answer Mr. Abell, byrdbrring to different portions of bis speech. I Will put the gentleman from the Fifth Distrfet against the gentleman from the Fifth District and L think it is lietter eo than to answer hill myself. He tellstis with a great deal of flourish that the nature of the negro is idleness, that he will not work unless compelled to under the lash of the driver. In the next breath he telb us he believes,if these same laxy, idle, good-for-noth ing, rngabnnd negroes are set free, they will come in competition with ttie white laborers, who will stand noclmnce at all. There is Mr. Abell against Mr. Abell. (Laughter and ap plause. ) In the same strain he boasted that the Ameri can people, beluga mixture of all the blood of the world, was the greatest, the most powerful, civilised, and altogether the smartest race ever existing on the face of the earth. He boasted wc had whipped Knglaud. two or three times, anil that we could thrash France, and were never whipped ourselves and never could be in the nature of things. The next moment he lays, if the slaves are freed in Louisiana they will rise up and imbue their hands in the blood of bi| posterity. Though not at all afraid of Kng land, France or any white nation, he is much afraid of the negroes ! Another instance of the geutleman answering himself is where he says the whites never would labor for ho small pay as the negroes. Then he asks whst we are going to do with the negroes if we set them free. I think he gave a good answer to his own questiou when he said they would work for less wages than the white man. lie any* again the negroes are perfectly miser able —are in a most degraded condition—en tirely incapable of taking care of tliomselves, when he states that slavery is a civilising and elevating institution. Now I want to know how inauy centuries it takes to elevate a race so that it is capable of ,taki«g care of it self T This institution whieh the gentleman would have us believe it so benignant and elevating to the blacks, lias been in existenoe in Louisiana from the earliest period of her history down to the moment of rebellion, and yet, according to tbe same gentleman, to-day this race has be come so degraded that it is utterly unable to take care of itself. Another instauce of this logic. He says the bone and sinew of the country would be driven out of the State by tbe emancipation of the slaves, in the next breath almost, he tells us that negroes, organised uuder slavery will work a great deal better than if they are free. Now, then, if the negroes are going to work more in slavery than when they are free, I wish to know how freeing them is to drive the white tailoring man out of Louisiana ? If the tiegro will not work when free, and will work as a slave, I think the white mau has less chance of employ ment under a system of slavery ! Tlie gentleman, in the course of his remarks, has seen fit to speak of the people of Louisiana under the Presidential and military authority as an “oppressed” people. If the people of Louis iana are oppressed, as the gentleman would hate us believe, 1 wish him to tell us by whuiu we arc oppressed ? He seems to forget that three years ago tbe rchvlliuu was forced upon tlie country by the slaveholding oligarchy; that Louisiana was m the full enjoy incut of commercial and agricultural prosperity, and that under tbe pro tecting tegis of the Union, her slaveholders were in secure possession of their slaves; that it was the rebellion that interrupted this pros perity, destroyed slavery and plunged the State into tlie condition m which we now find tier. I would like to have him point out in what man ner the military authorities have ever oppressed the (copic of Louisians—to point out to us how this Convention would have been called together but tor these very authorities. Mr. President, 1 could but feel as I have lis tened to this discussion, that we see here at last some uf the fruits of the efforts of our noble soldiers who have fallen iu the battlefield fur their country. Let me ask the gentleman if 1 had stood upon this floor, or any other in Louis ians, three years ago, and said what I have said to-duy, what course would have beeu pur sued by this slaveholding oligarchy he stands up here to defend ? The halter, sir, was the (tenuity for free speech in Louisiana tbeu. Does not the gentleman know that intellectual bond age is inseparably connected with slavery every where ? ljoes he not know that as the must gross and loathsome productions of nature flourish only in her darkest recesses, so tbe loathsome and hideous institutiou of slavery can grow only where the light of civ ilixatiuu and free spe ch are carefully excluded 1 He knows that before the Federal Hag came up the river on the flagship of that gallant old tar, F'arra gut, to stand up in this hall and sjieak as I have spoken and as others have spoken, would have liccii met with the penalty of instant death. Talk to us of oppression ! Let him go hack and read tbs amints of slavery, and nr" T~ •* mitSderv Ipiva hew IL lvk behalf and smtrr ffa shield. There is no crime against free ipeeub, free conscience, fire opinion, that has not beeu |ierpetratcd iu behalf of lliis system; tnd yet the gentleman stands up and calls the !>eop’le of Louisiana oppressed ! How many rights would ho-enjuy if the Federal flag were uot here ? He has told us lie thought civil government in laiuisiitiia would be detrimental to the people. I ask the gentleman why he is here? If the mteivets of the people are opposed to this Con vention, why did lie come here ? If tbe Federal lag was to be displaced by *iiat bastard banner, Lhe flag of the < onlederscy, the gentleman might escape the halter for having so ably de fended tbe rebellion here, but even that might not he sufficient to save his neck. Mr. Abell—1 call tlie gentleman to order. Mr. Hills—1 assert that tbe gentleman for three days has defended the rebellion on this floor. (Applause.) Mr. Abell again called Mr. llills to order. The Chair decided that the sjieaker was in or fler. and Mr. Abell appealed from the decision of the Chair. The Chair was sustained by the Convention. Mi. Hills—I trust tlie interruption will not he deducted from my half hour. I asserted with a full knowledge of the meaning of tuy words, that for three days tlie gentleman has defended tbe rebellion on this floor. I will now explain what I meant. I say that any man who vt inds up and defends slavery defends the rc beUion, for they are syuouy inuus terms at this moment. (Applause.) The geutlemau has laken, I suppose, the “ironclad" oath of the President. If so, he has sworn allegiance and obedience to the proclamation of the President, tml to all the laws of Congress framed on this mbject. Tlie rebellion is the legitimate child of davery. Slavery was sure to bring on rebel ion iu this country, and the wisest men in the ami foresaw it years ago. The prophetic words >f Jefferson, which I repeated, foreshadowed it me n amei .s oi our uonfcuiuuon uiu uoi ueiieve hat it would long remain iu existence in the Uuitcd Stales, and carefully avoided all direct illusion to it in the Constitution, because they regarded it as a disgrace and a system that .mglit to be and would be abolished. if the gentleman will take the trouble to ex amine the debates on the adoption of the Con stitution, he will find that such is the fact. All the wise men who helped to frame that Constitu tion believed that slavery was an evil, aud would speedily die out. lie has mentioned some illustrious names, bet me ask him if he knows the opinion of Ben jamin Frankliu uu the subject. I beg to remind him he was the President of the fir,-<t Abolition society cvciforgautze 1 iu the United States. Does be know the opinion of Judge Jay? Can he bring forward in the annals of our country the name of one great man of the Revolutionary who said a single word iu defense of slavery ? The President’s hammer came down at the expiration of the half hour. Mr. Terry uiovod that Mr. Hills have leave to conclude his remarks, which motion was secon ded aud carried; but Mr. Hills declined to pro ceed further at present. It was moved that the Convention adjourn, and that he have the door on Thursday morning, which motion was car ried. FANCY GOODS HOUSE, Wholesale, H.

S. 10-40 BONDS. Theeo Bonds are issued under the Act of Congress of March 8th, 1864, which provides that iu lieu of so much of the loan authorized by the Act ef Marcb 3d, 1864, to which this is supJementary, the Secretary of tho Treasury is authorized to borrow from time to time, on the credit of the United State*, not exceed ing Two IIrm>a*i> Million Dollars during tho current fiscal year, and to prepare and issue therefor Coupon and Registered Bond* of the United State*; and all Bonds issued under this Act shall he Ex kept from Taxation by or under any State or munici pal authority. Subscriptions to there Bonds are re ceived in United States notes of National Banks — They a eTo be udkkmkd in coin, at the pleas ure ot tho Government, at any period not less than ten nor more than forty years from their date, and uutil their redemption five pee cent interest will BE PAID IN coin, on Bonds ot not over one hundred dollar* annually, and on all other bonds se mi-annually. The interest is payable on the first day of March and September in each year. The semi annual Cou pons are payable at those dates, and the annual Coupons on the 50 and 100 dollar bonds are payable on the first of March. Subscribers will receive either Registered or Cou pon bonds, as they may prefer. Registered Bonds are recorded on the books of the U. S. Treasurer, and can betranferred only at ihe owner’s order.— Coupon Bonds are payable to bearer, and ar£ more oouvenient lor commercial use. Registered Bonds will be issued of the denomina tions of Fifty Dollars (950). One Hundred Dollars (9100), Five Hundred Dollars (600), One Thousand Dollars(9l.00Q).FJveThousand Dollars (95,000), and Ten Thousand Dollars (910,000); and Coupon Bonds ol the denominations of Filly Dollar* (960), One Hundred Dollar* (9100), Five Hundred Dollar* ana vine i nousaus uonars (V1.UW).

As these Bonds are exempt from Municipal or State taxation, their value is increased from one to three per oent p*r annum, according to the rate of tax levies la various parts of the country. At the present rate of premium on gold they pay over eight per cent, interest in currency, and arc of equal convenience as a permanent or temporary in vestment. It is be'ieved that no securities offer so great in ducements to lenders as the various descriptions of U. 8. Bonds.
