itese people say. to expect war in the autumn or

in rcent leadnit editorials in the Consttittioti
urging the claims of the Empress Eigelle to
regency. It is argued that such claims would not
te put flrth at thia time, were it not anticipat d
that the emperor might hope to lead- an army and
be expowed to the perils of the field ; on the otb-r
hand are the , ficial pledges of peace daily made,
the sdvice ofBacially given to act as if assured of
peace and the argument so frequently urged by
the French governmest that the very complete.
ness of armament is a guarant; of peace. Recent
and sadden changes of policy on the Bourse and
the variations in rentes are explained as results
of the alternate ascendency of these opposing
views at the flain iatl center of France.

Murselles, Mr. Behie assured his hearers that the
policy of Irat ce was for the preservation of

would make peace sure.

Will confer a favor upon the editors of this col
umn by sending to the CRascswT office after each
meeting of the several clubs which they represent,
a synopsis of the proceedings. We are oom
pelled to ask this from them, as the rapidly in
creasing number of Democratic clubs in the city
render it impossible for a local force, however
large, to attend every meeting. We wihh tomake
this column a complete compendium of local
political intelligence, and, with the aid of our
friends, will certainly do so. But sueach assistance
is ne-eseary. We trust that the Democrats of the
city wtl give it.

This band of sterlug gentlemen on Saturday,
befre the procession, sere honored by being
made the recipients of yet another token of the
este, m and admiration in which they are held by
our ci'izens. Their former gifts, however, have
come from the ladies; this time it wai from the
hands of the sterner sex that the tribute came.
Messrs. Gueble and Nippert, the well knowao "o
( upants of one of the i'oaro buildings, made last
week a magnificent U. S. flag. It is a very large
one, made of double silk with heavy gold fringe,
gilt etsrs. and is attached to a haulsome staff, sur
mounted with a silver spear point. Knowing how
safe it would be In their hands, Messrs. Gneble
and Nippert tendered this handsome standard to
the Ciescent city Club, who, flattered by the
compliment, were not slow to accept it. Accord.
ingly on Saturday just before the procession hbed
formed, the club marched to the store of Meears.

tation at the Varieties-in behalf of the above
named gentlemen, with a happy speqch presented
the flag. Col. Fred. N. Ogden. president of the
Crescent City's, responded In his usual able style,
when the club, every man it a trifle prouder
for the event in which he had just participated,
marched off to join the procession.
Messrs. Gueble & Nippert are not, we are in
formed, cit zeus of our town. Hence the lively
interest they have thus displayed in our well be
ing is all the more praiseworthy. We commend
their example to others.
The Scymour Soutbrens.
Again it becomes our pleasant duty to record
another tribute of beauty to chivalry, in the pre
sentation of a banner ny the fair ladies of the
Garden District to the Seymour Boothrons. The
banner is one of exceeling riohness, and does
honor both to the fair dono,r and the re:ipients.
Its front is of pure white silk, borded with gold
lace, with the name of the Beymour Southrons
d lvo e l a homes" Inscribed open it
with silver lace, opohtt
by the ('onstitutiou." For etbgance of design
and exqn.siteness of taste it eeipaned with any
baLner which was that night borne in the pro
cession. In kindly consideration of the long
march before the BQuthrops, the presentation
took place at the residence of Mrs. Rice No. 13
Prytonia street, Capt. Samuel Flower, in a spir
ited address, tendering it on oehaif of the ladies,
and the Hon. M. A. Foote responding in behalf of
the club in a happy manner.
We congratulate the Southrons on their guidon.
for there are tow clubs that can boast of as beau
tifnl a banner as that wh.ch they so proudly car
ried on last Saturday night. We have no doubt
that on the ides of November their lady friends
will find that the Sounhr ,us' banner wil be among
the first to herald the victoiy of our cuam
Immediately after the presentation the club,
under the guidance of their marshal. MI. McNa
mars, proceedqd to the reel fence of Mrs. M. E.
Royes, on Baronne street, where the apprecia
tion of the ladies w's again manifested in the
crowning of their banner by a wreath, whose
elegance drew forth the admiration of all; and
from thence to the residence of Mrs. McEuany,
on (antp street. where they were again honored
by the ladies with another wreath, expresalve of
their admiration of this unexcelled organiration.
Hurrah for the touthrons and their lady frienis.

T the Editor of the O. O r..eent
In conversation with a friend the other day, I
expressed astonishment at the fact that :Gen.
Gsant bhad not made a single speech durnug the
present campaign. " Why," aid he, "it's all quite
natural. Iid you ever hear the story about the
California miner and his educated frog ?" " I do
not remember that I ever did." " Well thea,"
said he, "unoe upon a time a Californal miner, who
worked in a gulch far off from all companlonship,
found a large toad frog in his tent, and being of a
kindly disposition, he determined to tame an
make a pet of it. He found that the frog was very
intelligent, and soon made such progress that be
appeared to naderstand every word addressed to
him. But he espeially showed his extraordinary
efficiency in the art of jumping. His leaps sooa
grew so astonishing that it occurred to the miner
that the animal wiuld prove a profitable thing to
exhibit. Be tried the experiment. and every
iminer In the next town as well us those (tram the
neighb.rio. ciggRus, came to see the 'learned
frog.' So successful was he, that a party of
friends made up a purse of fire thousand dollars
to pay his expenses to the states, where
it was expected his froguhip weuld exole
such a furor that a fortune cou d be made. Vuoa

their usual custom, they asked him a thoeuand

frog-and, seising so favorable an opportunity he
began to expatiate upon the wonderful soqatre
ments of his pet. His hearers laughed In his face
when he stated that his frog could outjump any
frog in the world. Be offered to bet a hundred
dollars. They contemptuously refused, then one
