THE P lMi)SB* Wednesday Morning, March 13, 1867. A I-'* o-i'll islaiui-e. [t used to be said of old that “whom th®, gods would destroy they first make mad.*- If this i«' true to-day then certainly the higher powers must have decreed the total destruc tion, of the boulltern political kaiders, for it is plain that they have gone stark, staring mad with arrogance, folly and spile. A sug gestive illustration of the tenqier they mani fest may 1$ tound in the recent aetjbn e»l the 1 xrnisia iu Legislature. That laxly has now be iore it a proposition to declare its on n uncon stitutiouality as at present organized, and the inefficiency of all its acts. It has passed, over the veto ol Gov. Wells, a hill providing for the e’ection of delegates to a Gonvention to form a (state Constitution, the voting txiwer to be in the hands only of the “qualified voters of ihe State,” thus excluding entirely the en franchised freed men. The deliberate and avowed purpose of this bill is to defy the acts of Cougress, to set at naught the military au thority prescribed by national law, aud to make up an issue on which to try then strength against the national government. In prool that this and nothing but this is what they mean we subjoin the following from the New Orleans Crescent: “For several days the bill has been pending and, during those several days, the members no •louht, deliberated freely among themselves the important question Indore then, as to its expe diency. The legislation adopted by Congress w as of a character to demand mature reflection before the adoption ol a measure which many liersons supposed might bring the State into conflict with tlie Federal Government. A de cent respect lor public opinion required that, time for such reflection should be taken. But a decent respect for public opinion likewise re quired that, alter due consideration, the »>ill should he passed. Perhaps the very threat ol conflict to grow out of it confirmed the already determined sentiment in its luvor, because such a conflict could not he the kind ot collision dangerous to the peace and order of tlie State; hut simply a judicial issue which will hasten tlie decision of the questions involved iu the unconstitutional legislation of Cougress. The objection urged by the oppoueuts ol’ tlie meas ure, that the (.1 uited States military author ities will not Kiifler it to be carried iuto effect, is invalid in every respect. Even if we were very sure that there would be such military iutei volition, it would not become us to shrink from the exercise of our constitutional lights in advance of the unconstitutional interference with which wc are threatened. Such a course would he an abandonment of our position*—u concession to the pretension of supreipe au thority over the States, set up hy the Radicals, and tuc lirst step toward an acceptance of the programme of Radical reconstruction ostensi bly contemplated by the Congressional act." A man who in tlie excess ol his impotent spite dashes his bead against a stone wall is hardly likely to be applauded for his wisdom, but he Is a shining example of good sense jn comparison with this Louisiana Legislalui-e, or the newspapers which sustain its action. The harm he may do is limited to the knocking out of Ills own brains; for them to jiersist in tlie course on which they have entered is to pre cipitate a conflict which will not only result in tlieir own destruction but Involve iu new bloodshed and In deeper ruiu not tlieir own State only but perhaps a large portion (1 t ie South. A contemporary of the Cresco t always friendly to the class it supports, thus otters to that paper a word of serious wanting: if there were any chance of advantage from the judicial issue ou which the Crescent dwells, the act might admit of palliation. But there is no suen chance. Assuming that a case lor an ip}H*;d to tlie Supreme Oourt may he made up, that cannot save the State from the opera tion of tlie new law. Before a decision can by any* possibility lie rendered, the present Legis lature of Louisiana will lie swept out of exist ence; the qualification for voters which it recognizes will be set aside: many of tlie men who, by this Gonvention Bill, determine wlm shall be voters, will he themselves disfranchis ed , aud instead of the projected Convention in the interest of rebels, another Convention will be held, with delegates clouted iu part by ne gro votes. These results will assuredly Is brought about—by military intervention, it necessary. It is to be hoped that, these, hot-headed madmen may yet take counsel of reason and eoinmou sense, and abate something of tlieir presumption. The temper of the country will not patiently tolerate a renewal of the bloody scenes of last summer. An attempt on the part of these “reconstructed ' rebels to revive the reign of terror by which they were then enabled to compass a temporary triumph will be inet^n the part of the military author ities with a stern and unflinching exercise ol the |«nver iu its bauds, and that |x>werisover wheltuingly competent to ileal with the mat ter as ii deserves. To Vox Populi sm: As you liavc chosen to cuter the fiekl with a mask, you will allow me to call you V. 1*. It will save some writing. You prefer to be on the side of a just cause—a cause so just and so reasonable that, by implication, they Who differ from you, are no better than knaves or fools, deficient alike both in “head and heart.” If honest and sincere, why get behind a mask? That prohibition and license have both been tried, aud louud to be ineffectual, I acknowl edge. Aud what then? Have they been tried in the best way? Go to Massachusetts, read over the names of witnesses who have been be fore the legislature, clerj men, mayors of cities, police officers, &e., all temperauce men and friends of temperance, who have been hereto fore the friends of prohibition, and what is their testimony? That prohibition is a dead failure; that intemperance is everywhere in creasing; and that now they are in favor of a strinyent licence law; not of a nominal license law. Rut, you say “if the sale of intoxicating li quors is an evil, and productive of evil—it be comes a crime"—others say a ein. Hove is a begging of the question. Extravagance is an evil—surgery is an evil—medicine is an evil and law itself is an evil; aud all are productive of evil. Arc they crimes? Are they sins? Or will you not look to the motive? A surgeon cuts and slashes to save life, not to destroy— Now I say, if a license law will lessen tltaevil complained of, then why not have such arlicense law? And then you ask Iriumphanfiy—why not li cense houses of ill fame? To which I answer, why not? II licensing will lessen the evil,ami nothing elsecan, why not license them?- or in other words, why not rryulutc them, aud sub ject them to the constant supervision of a com petent and faithful police? Do not mistake words for things. If an ulcer can Ik- appeased by plunging a knife into it up to the hilt—why shrink from doing what would he evil in itself apart from the motive, because your short sighted or weak-minded neighbor says that you must uot do evil that good may come of it. 11 your object in licensing lie to lessen the evil, al ter diligent inquiry and long experience, then your motive sanctifies t]te act? "Aud why not license murder, theft, bur glary?” This wo do now by authorizing war; by allowing life to he taken under tho law— Rut perhaps you will say this is not murder. It is only homicide. Be not deceived. Defini tions do not change facts. By war you author ise the killing of innocent persons' You au thorise pillage and bnrglary. In other words you license all these crimes! Aud why? Be cause on the whole, you believe, or pretend to believe that good will come of it -greater good on the whole. And yon set aside the laws ol God in the hope of that greater good. Yet war “is an evil, and productive of evil,” and there fore, according to your argument, a crime. Do you uot see, that by this course of reason ing, my good friend, yon arc not touching the ••ore of the question? If the “sole of intoxicat ing liquors is an evil, and productive of evil" so as to be a crime, how dare you countenance the liquor agency? or the apothecary shop? Would you license crime? Tile questions, after all,are only these. On the whole, does the evil of liquor selling overbal ance the advantages? Anil then—if it does, what is the surest and speediest way of curing I hat e vil ? These are the only questions; and I must beg my friend V. J". to weigh them well, and to believe that others may be as honest as himself, and perhaps as disinterested, and a* well-informed, even though they do not agrw with him on the subject of prohibition. JoUN .N KAL. —Henry Ward Beecher insists that the onlv “eall” a man needs for the Christian ministry, is “to want to preach and to be able to do it successfully,” and says, “if ten thousand apostles in rows as long fts from hero to the celestial gates should refuse to give a man per mission to preach, yet if ho has the desire and ability,he is called, and li ‘ is ordaiued, to be u preacher.” — 1 here is,” says Victor Hugo, "in Napole on s table, in bis study, a drawer, frequently half open.
