The career of the He publican party. piiard from its inception under the eyes of ths present generation, presents a political study replete with interest and instruction. "When we consider that its first victory ushered in one of the most terrible wars of. modern times ; that two of its chiefs havs fallen at the band of the assassin, that third was arraigned before a court of impeach, menr, that yst another was oounted in by the novel contrivance of aa Elec toral Commission; last daring its as cendency the Union baa been rent asunder and re - established and. finally, that millions of slaves have beenSemancipated and enfranchised, ws begin to realise that ws have had before us a bistorio movement mads brilliant snd memorable by every element of drsmatlo . effect. "The whole story of this party is to bo told in four chapters : I Its rise as an anti - slavery party ; II. Its four years of struggle, aa a war party, far ths Union; III. Its experience as a reconstruction party ; IV, Its deterioration Into a mechanical organization for the pursuit and re ten tion of offloe. No one will contend that the party of abolition was originally a Union party. It waa mads np of men who measured the indignity of slavery from the standpoint of their own manhood, lien of liberal culture, endowed with the social capacity engendered by a high ci tills t - tion, jumped to the conclusion that the right to liberty was universal, and their conviction was ao intense that it glowed with the white beat of fanaticism. Their ideal was not the material grandeur of ths nation, but the freedom of the human race. if. tho permanence of the Union meant the perpetuation of slavery behind ths shield of tha Federal constitution, then, in their judgment, it followed that the Union should be do stroyed ; f or if secession was treason against the - nation, tho Union was itself a coalition against tho rights of It - was not easy therefore, to - indnce these . sxtrsmists to content themselves with aa organisation that looked only to the reetrietion of slavery within certain prescribed limits. On the other hand, it was as dificult to convince tho Southern people that the Republican party as a whole would not ultimately fall" under the control of its more radical wing, and that all the muniments of their vested rights were not aoonex or later to be swept away. . Bnt when tha debate led to war, and . when the .war led to the emancipation of the slaves, tho Republican party was at peace within itself. : At the end of the war. however, men began to understand that the destruction of the Confederacy and the restoration sf the Union were two different things ; for the latter . consummation meant aomething more than the integrity of ths national territory. Henoe arose the problem of reconstruction. Tha Republican party assumed that It was its duty not only to effect the original purpose cf the war, but also to rn petals certain incidental results' of the war. Host important among those incidental results was ths emancipation of ths slave population of the Bout, and it was contended that eiifranchiscment leiBZ el J. tcccxJIrz to tla American irecry, the ballot la both tha sword and shield cf citiren&hip. - Bnt la order that the newly mads citizens should enjoy their rights fully, and more especially In order that the Republican party might be reinforced by their voting strength, it was deemed necessary that ths Southern States should be admitted to actual and active membership in the Union.' . . . ; - ,:' - 7 So far the Republican .party waa in earnest, and ita greatest men went with it. It remained for time to. disclose the sad fact that enfranchisemet carries with It no helpfulness unless nature and education have anticipated the civil law giver. Political competency cannot be created by - a scratch of the pen. . The enfranchisement - of the negroes in creased ths strength of the. South in Congress and in the electoral college. The Republican party derived a temporary advantage from that increase, it is true ; but In a little while ths dominant race in this section reasserted itsancisnt snd natural supremacy, and the solid South became the backbone of the great rival of the Republican party. f For a long time Republicans were un willing to concede this practical demon stration; but there are now probably very few, if any, of them who look to the re - conquest of the South by means of the negro vote. At this point ths party reached the proper limit of its history as an aggressive power in poli tics. For some time 'prior to the late" Chicago Convention lis wisest advisers hoped that it - would place Itself upon souxd conservative basis as the cham pion of the country's credit, and pro tector of Us industries. If ths issue be tween free trade - and a ' protective tariff could be sharply defined and made paramount in the ooming contest, " ' they thought that . they might see - their way to another victory. Democratic dissen aiona open the subject rendered this a by no means unreasonable expectation. but - the Chicago nominations have altered the whole face of ths situation. The main issne now is not ons cf indus - tiial policy, but of personal fitness. Republican orators and organs will vehemently insist, no doubt, that their chief concern Is still ths credit and pros perity of ths country ; but they will not be able to explain why they have pre f erred a discredited leader, after having Ignored tho claims of men of better re pute, and or men certainly equally devoted to the best interests ef ths country. - We have said that the fourth snd, - . last - .. chapter - of ths history of the Republican party will deal with its deterioration into a mechanical organisation . for the pursuit and retention of office. At the present time it is Only in ths current that moves in that direction. It is not yst a lifeless mechanism ; for it is still capable of en thusiasm, air. Arthurs nomination would have been the work of the Re publican machine; Mr. Blaine's nomi nation was the expression of the will of the 'majority of the Republican party. But when a party has fallen into a con dition of blind favoritism, when it will risk a principle for ths sake of a person ality, it is moving fast towards tho last atage of its existence a stage of Implicit aubeerriencv to demagogues. - Mr. Blaine's weakness and his strength are both the result of bis personal qualities, and it is inevitable that bis indi. vidusl record, rather than ths general policy - and purpose of bis party, shall now become the subject of dabats, The publio acts of public man are justly aiPtiTjpvMa to criticism, and Mr. Blaine has been himself too hard a bitter to ex pect quarters now. He is getting, the hardest blowa from his former allies. . Death, of Charles TronUy. . On Monday morning Mr. Charles Trou - Illy departed this life, after a long and painful illness. 1 He was a native of St. Michel, Department of Muerthe, Franco, and bad been a resident " in this city for the psst twenty - two years. Daring this long period of time he was engaged in the hair gocds and fancy article busini as a direct importer from Europe, and bad - acquired - a - great - reputation in thia line of trade. The house Lad , also become distinguished for its beautiful etyle of hair dressing, all impressed ' npon it by the good taste of Mr. Trouilly : and his long practical knowledge of the art. ' He was, at the time be was taken sick, arranging for a trip to Paris, to make special selec tions for the Exposition. ' Ho bad been ailing for some years with an affection of the liver. From this last attaok be expected to rally, as be bad often done before, but the hope proved vain. The disease set in with ' malarial fever and oonld not be . controlled, despite every effort that professional skill could make or - sood nursing render. He was attended in bis last illness by bis de voted wife and affectionate daughters. who are left to mourn bis untimely de mise. ... " .' Mr. Trouilly was still in the prime of life, being 49 years of age. . He had been a great traveler in - his dsy, and at one time was a resident merchant cf St Petersburg. Everybody liked him on account of his genial good nature, and his intelligent knowledge of men and things mads him a most agreeable com. panion. ; . .' - , New Orleans loses an excellent citizen. in the death of Charles Trouilly. The community that knew him so wall will deeply sympathize with his bereaved fsmily. , . - ? . , . Cbxat Taxm bt Kail. K. D. Mann's Gen eral - Ballroad Ticket Offloe. lsa Oommoi street, opposite Bt.

The prospect undoabttsliy is "more gloomy than - at any preoedinK period In - the history of tfce State. If the present down grade is followed, even without the present scceleration of descent, ths force of gravity will draw the political autonomy which is sup posed to be a Government of the people. ioto such bankruptcy that ths people will secede from it. Ths first remedy for the unfortunate Inadequacy of revenue is the readjust ment of assessments. If nothing better can be done than to continue the present system, most urgent seeking out of new objects of taxation la unavoidable. : - From the Auditors report it appears that ths M cash vslne of railroads with! a this State or partly within this and anether State," for 1883, was ft4.933.8S3. We do not care to enter into an ex amination of the diesrepant valuation in different parishes ; ths general . position is - auits apparent without. . Ths railroads are actually worth oa aoash valuation f4O.0O.0OO or more ; their stocks amount to S29.S01.CS5. and their bonds to S23.557.107. as the reader will see below. On what principle these roads. which have been so largely assisted by Louisiana and her eubordinate political autonomies, should be let off with shamefully nominal aasessment - of ted per centnm, on which to be taxed mora lightly than the needs of ths bugs r auire. we cannot disoover. The favor j which they received nave been as large ly negative aa positive ; in other States they are not only required to pay heavy rates on true asseesments. but are also rigidly limited .in their charges. The complsinta of the people in Louisiana at high rates .of fare and freight have been met by the representation that we need more railroads nere - ana must not dis - oourage capital from coming in. But if thia argument ia to be carried to the extent of pretermitting 00 per. cent, of their tsxes which is the - real and true effect of granting a 10 per cent, as sessment it becomes so manifestly un fair and burdensome to tha people that it will be rebelled against. It would be better to excuse them altogether, rather than to excuse such false assessments. But ths right plan is to tax them on the same basis on which ths taxation of other property reata.

The bills, if passed, will deoieass the license tsxes now paid to the par lsnes and Estate dv tne auctioneers. - 4. Titles to property will be more dif ficult to trace, inasmuch as all deeds will be paseed by the Sheriff, and it is well known that the original deeds are frequently lost while authentio copies are seldom kept. - 5. Auctioneers get better prices fox property than Sheriffs, and their oom missions are smaller. Under 'the proposed Jaws there will not be as much to distribute in the settlement of estates st would be the case were the sales made bv - the auctioneers. - 6. Ths Sheriff now has an equal ehanoe witn tne auctioneer, it sales conducted by him brought better returns or were better in any way or gave greater satis faction, he would receive the largest snare oz tee Dusinsss. - un tne oonjrarr, nine - tenths of the business is siven to the suctioneers,whlch shows the opinion of the community at large aa to their relative meritr. 7.
