AN IMPORTANT PARAGRAPH.
Tho following section of a law passed
by the Legislature before its adjournment is
one of much importance, particularly to
printers, nud is. calculated to prevent impo
sition and coircct abuses which have here
to fore been practiced to a great extent.

actually paid for printing said notice; and if
said olhccr shall charge any other or great

seldom that we perceive in the proceedings

persons holding the same opinions relative

oppose every thing, could not live. The
members of tho Louisana legislature, fur a
wonder, however, were recently entirely
unanimous in voting on a subject which
came before them a circumstanre which
has hardly a parallel in the legislation of this
country. The proceedings upon the ques

"There was no dodging; no requests to
the honorable gentleman to postpone his le-

forward to servo a political purpose; no a

suggested; no constitutional objection w as
raised; no one said he would oppose it as a
whig measure, no one as a loco fuco; no one
called it a humbug, a wooden horse, a blind

dissenting voice it was a" "perfect straight
shoot." If there was any delay at all in driv

that one gentleman was not fully awako at
