All his boyhood, says "diwede," writing of
Seward, was spent in devouring books. He was
netther a fsherman like Webster, nor a boy of all

against permission, and was nearly drowned for
trying to walk a foot bridge and read a book at

Hobbes pauses in the midst of much execrable
noasense to say, very truly, that "aothin; is so I
much a failure as some successes. People often
think they win when they only lose. Cheating
may seem a gain, but the one who makes it is a
loser. Sucoess in anything that is not clearly fair I
and right is a failure; while every effort in the
right directes is to that extent a soeoess."
A gentleman and his family who, a fortnight I

and the fowl had occupied one of the bed rooms.

Most of the factory girls at Roublax have bee I'

Mass Meeting at Congo Square
MUSIC, FIREWORKS AND
If, after the countless parades, processions and
presentation. of the past two months, after the
ooatiNous outburst of eathesiasm whioh, snce
the sommstloss in July lit, has followed the baa
noan of Seymour and Blair wherever and when
ever they have been borne proudly through the
rreets of New Orlenss, and after all the lavish
donations of time, mosey and labor by
our citizena, there yet lurked in the mind
of any resident a doubt as to where
were the sympathies of this population,
that unreasosable doubt must have been forever
and f, rever dispelled by the overwhelming de
mon istio of last evening, whm tea thboaad
men. a& voters, proud and jealous of their rights
sad privileges, and each one claiming conneotion
with some oae or another independent clab, mst
together on or around Congo Square to discuss
the all absorbing national and local isesus of the
hour. It was a glorious spout sole to any one
having at heart the sfety and welfare of New
Orleans, of fair Louisiana, of the whole country,
to witness those thousands of earnest men, repre.
senting every condition of life, and, by nativity
almost every civilized country on the hee of this
earth, gathered together with se heart to feel,
one voice to speak, and one hand, but a mightier
than all those of a Briareas, to protect and de
ft ad themselves, their homes and their loved oaer.
The meeting had been called for half-past 7
o'clock, but long before that hour the maultitde
commenced to assemble. From every direction,
the populace, men, women sad children, came
po'.ring in toward the great center, where a huge
platform had been ereoted, and adorned tase
fully with flags and transparenciee, priaolpally
contributed by the Hancock C ub and the Broom
Reageis and brilliantly illuminated withal. Dis
aflected colored people, accustomed to " hurrah
tor Grant," stood afar off. and looked with won.
dering yet suspecting glances upon the mo
inentarily increasing sasemblase. Small boys,
bearing flags, or wearing homemade uni
form caps, flitted upon the outskirts of
the crowd, cheaing each other in and
out, with occasional huzrahs for "deymour and
Blair." Mothers pointed out to the bables in their
arms the flag on the piasftre, and a by-stanodng
reporter wondered to hlmself whether those ba
bies, if they live to three oore years and tet, will
see that same honored flag floating above them.
There was an endless chattering, French, German
and English tongues intermingled their accents,
the brass bands kept up an uproar, the rockets
9zzed and burnt, men shouted and cheered, the
tuge bonfires at either side of tae square crackled
and blazed and sent up their black smoke skyward,
and then, of a sudden, all was still, as J. Pmcknay
Smith. Eaq, president of the central committee of
Independent Democratic Clubs, called the meeting
to order, a, d nominated the following officers:

The first speaker of the eveiag was ear popular
fellow-citisen HRe. Ge. H. Braugha. who, from
his seat Ia the Benate chamber. has a a m uststy
upheld and so sealousy guarded the rights of the
people of laoisim. The Brepublesa newspaper
of this city, said he, has for the lass two days se
seoted that the Domocratic party, Ia view of the
recent elections, has become diooeeraged. He de
nled that this was the ease-- dms reatra of
this evenintag was a su aet evideese to the eoa
trary. The speaker then dwelt upon the cooers
of systematic mireprsenttion porsmed by the
Radical leaders., allding too to their partisa
management of local affairs here, as lastaoed by
the appointment of a large propoedersane of ga
groes upon the polio. foree. Bat, be scatl
coed, the news from Pesaylvania sad Inadian
have been growing better daily sane the elec
tions. People at the North are sady mis
informed as to the real ceuditku of adiaks
in the South. Very recently Ge. ilpatrick, now
a prominent adical orator. recently rp d a
Lousiuanoan traveling in the orth, by infomrn
him that the last white Legislatre of thi State
r eryth ls that cases bemn ins to the
rebel, sad some even believe there we are in
league with the devil himselL The New York
Tribone, the other da, had as editerial heeded,
"The New Rbellion." A ralroad disaster ocur
red not long since in Virginia, and it was immedi
ately ascribed to the Ka Klux Klha. If a street
car aocident should happen to-morrow in this city,
fn the same way, It would be the doinage of the Ku
Kloux Klan. Have anay of yeo, my heores, ever
heard of the existence of such as orgalnsation ? I
have not. A wagon train, somewhere in Texas,
was recently reported in a Northern paper as be
ing captured by "rebels." Certainly you never
heard of this. (A volce "a d-d lie.")
But yet, my friends, tn spite of all these mis
representations, I look hopefully forward to the
November elections, and cannot beut believe that
the result will be different from that of last Toes
day. The distingulshed orator then alluded to
Grant's order proscribing the Israelites. In Penn
sylvania, raid he, there are 60,000 Jewish voters,
who, while on local eissues, may have voted with
the Republican party, will be certain to vote
against Grant. There was no caneus to be dis
heartened; but we should rather be cheered that
our Northern friends have so increased their own
strength. We can, at all events, hope to carry
our own State of Louisiana. Bach an aohieve
ment will be a death blow to Radicalism in this
State, and would drive outall the carpe-baggers ;
but we don't mean to let them carry of their car
pet-bags otherwise than empty. (A voice:
"We'll look after them.") I do not acouse them;
they accue themselves suffioeatly by their own
The speaker concluded his brilliant eft by an
e! queut appeal to all citisens to reqter them
relve as voters without delay.
Ex-Lieutenant Governor A bert Voorbles was in
troduored as the next speaker, and addressed the
assemblage in the Fr language. His remarks
were eagerly listen w, and at intervals loudly
cheered, for he spoke with a fire and a fervor
which communicated themselves to his hearers.
Al ding to the news regarding the October else
tos,. he said they should only stimulate to in
creased activity. Compare the dispatches of to
day with thse five days ago and you will only
find cause for encouragement in the reduced ma
jorities of our opponents-in fact, genot men, said
he, in order to arrive at any ecourate conolusaoe
we must waiter the official statements of the re
sults. The music and uproar of a passing club
rendered the speaker's remarks inaudib!e to our
reporter for a time. Then shortly Ulterward came
ano'her club, end a similar interruption. The
po nts that we heard him make were that the two
great questions now to be decided were, first,
finance, and second, reconstruction. Upon these
two topics the speaker dilated, and at the close
of his remarks retirtd amid prolonged applause
and cries of " Steedman."
Roe. eraa B. boaet, of Ca perish, was
next introduoed, and tn plaio.sensl diseorse,
seasoned with much quaint humor, narrated the
experience of his people in the Northern portion
of the State under the present Radical regime.
At his conclusion, there were loud cries for
" Steedman. Steedman," but it being announced
that the general was unavoidably prevented from
being present. M. F. Sibilsky, Esq., of the Ger
man Press, and chairman of the German Demo
cratic Central Committee, was introduced and ad
dressed the audience, speaking in the German
Isoanage. He found before him many earnest
and appreciative listeners, and. judging by the
applause which followed him from the stand,
.poke sentiments which met a cordial response in
the breast of every honest Teuton within the
sound of his voice.
Prof. Dimitry was next introduced and by his
passionately eloquent sentenoes completely en
thralled, for half an hour, his vast crowd of
bearers. We regret that at the late hour of
writing we are compelled to forego the pleasure
of giving a synopsis of his remarks. Other speak
ers followed and it was not until after 10 o'clock
that amid rceers for Beymour and Blair the im
mense assemblage dispersed, each man taking
with him a stouter heart and a refreshed hopeful
ness for the triumphant Issue of the campaign.

was a very lare githering of the mot respecta

in J, flereou City. Hon. B . Tornt ut'l was eath i
siea(ltically called on to act as chairman. Mr.
launhull tendered his thsnks in an exceedingly
neat and appropriate speech. He stated that the

but to adopt ame coorse with regard to measures
wbhlti had cre ted great deal of excitement, and
to stamp the .onduct of the oesu als Jefferson
City. both of the cooneil and on the lice, with
the approbation of the white people a'the parish.
C, I. Parker and & P. Pleming, KIqi.. were
called to act as secretaries. A committee of seven

sad another whore nemse we could not hear.
The committee repaired to the Ctty Hall to draft
the resolutions. During their absence, Judge
Cazabet was loodly celled for. The judge came
forward and delivered a mbort but really
tauotaful addressu, pregnant with wisdom
asnd eloquence. He said the meeting was
not for polical purposes; citizeau had as
sembled as men whose rghts and liUberts
have been trampled in the duet. He advocated
peace, and advertised the Legidslature and the me
tropolitan police that their remedy. if any they
had, lay, not in f-.rce of violence, betin am appeal
to the eourta of justice. Let the people be asure
they are right, and with the right on their side,
they might be confident of justice nader the giorl
oneu of this country, which waved over the
platform. Let the matter be brought betore a
court ou a quo tecarrnto by the funentioarles con
cerned. and let the decison be what It might,
given by Demoorat or Radical, and the people
would abide by it. All that we wanted was to

The mseting was orderly and attentive. Every
