three of her children with strych

A 8octor was fortunately nigh and
saved two of the luilren, but the
youngest one died ailut half ai
hour after taking the poison. It is
supposed that the medicine was
left on the place when the war
broke out, and- had been kept for
quinine by those who found it.

column letter to Hoer1 1 .k..
To use one of Mr. Carter's roe'
slightly modified, the letter ýh re
the Lieutenant G(rerpot a"s r
manner to be a first-class success."
Mr. Dunn starts out with gravity,
gets fecetions in the middle, makes
fun of Horace aý an agriculturist,
and finally gets mad, hurls defiance,
and tells the whole journalistic world
to mind its own business, in this
fashion: "And with alldue respect
to you- (H. 0. ; andl your journalis
tic con /reres permit me to say that
we know our evils and their reme
dies, and are competent to attend
to our owti polit ical interests, and
we intend to do "o without regard
to " outside censure or dictation."
If matters continue to run as badly
throughout the State as they have
begun in Tt rri vie and St. Charles
parishes. Messrs. Dunn and Co.
will shortly have no "political inter
ests" left to atwnil ti. Roat beef
and brass bands wan; muster them
a corporr.l's giuird. And Mr. Dunn
unkindly overlooks the fact, in slur
ring Mr. Greeley and his confreres,
that but for such men as he and
them, the possibility of a colored man
occupying the Lieutenant-Gover
norship would e ot be an impossi
The writer goes for "carpet-b.ig
gers," especially Gen. McMillen,
Lynch, Gov. Warmoth, Herron,
Southworth, Conway, Dibble and
West, but modestly intimates that
if they will abstain from politics
and "invest their caffital," they may
yet be "cordially welcomed by the
native population!' Why Beaure
gaud, Forrest, or the editor of the
New Orleans lToe t himself, could
not offer more flattering induce
ments for soldiers of the Cnion to
"locate" among us!
Mr. Dunn then proceeds to in
struct the President that "if he de
sires to strengthen our confidence
in him and increase the successes
of the Republican party in Louis
iana, he will not only continue these
faithful servants 'the Gatlin gun
ners) in their positions, but give
them his warr:.est commendation
for their condnct." That is, unless
tije President keeps these men in
othee, and stands by them, notwith
standing the unqualified and uni
versal condemnation of their action

in this State, but by the prtes and
people of the entire count'ry' with

With reference to two Cl'nven

Does Mr. Dunn not kmow that

tell him now, that Senator Pinch

Now we come to a very queer
cir'cumstance connected with the
publishing of this voluminous epis

specific and numbered charges

IThe Guard had no cireulation
here, but it is suspected
that. a lot of extra copies .t this
dlosing number were struck off to
circulate this letter at the North.
But to give it circulation at home,
Mr. Dmmnia procured iis insertion in
the leading Democratic organ, the'
Thmes, after first carv'fullydeiminat.

which really constituted the chief

better for us.
There is one little fact that thq,
President mentioned, which tou thes
t(le corn s of Marshal Packard again.
Not only does "the highest su-,
thority" repudiate for himself all
knowledge and authority for the
use of the Troops at the Custom
house, but he says that "General
Reynolds when he tilled the requisi
Lion of Marshal Packard did not
know they were to he use4 4 a
Political Convention." This is ap
other step towards stripping the
bayonet rulers of authlity or sanc
tion for the use of troops, and re
ducos it to the position in which we
first placed it, yiz, that it was the
bull headed exercise of "a littlebrief
authority' and that conferred for
entirely dillerent purposes.
It reumain.i to ho seen whether,
apart from all the outrages which
Republicans here bave puffered, a
United States marshal, aided by
other Federal employees, will be
permitted with impunity to prosti
tute the services of the soldiers of
the lnoted States army, for the
furtherance of purely partizan pur
pose.; whethor this is to be done
without even the knowledge of "the
highest authority," and by imposi
tion on the crodulity, of and misre
presentation to, the oThier in comn
uantd.of the troops.
It were uuhesM to say to men
capable of such impxostitionis that

3 . Editor:- A feeling of sympa
thy (owing to a want of knowledge)
appea revail j some, of the
parishes, among our people, to
elh ycamz minre :.pr~n Lt.
I Go, Dnmr fr the nisimatm for
Gev. of the State in 1872. Yet
*b n aded, 'wtty they neglect their
bent in ti to sympathize with
the Lt. .thir reply is, "that
they intin& to nominate him, be
roese he .i a, colored man," and
that enough has already been told
Stjwem by that fsctien that they
are sure to elect him as Governor
of thState of Soaisiina in 1872,
no mntter who the candidate may
be against him in the nomination."
This then is the reason why the
Customhouse faction were sn eager
to control the State Convention
which asasebled on the 9th of last
August in the U. 8. Courtroom, in
U. S..Customhoi e, whose entrance
was guatded by 9. Deputy Mar
shals, who were supported by U. S.
soldiers obedient to the command
of U. S. Marshal Packard, President
of the State Central Committee.
We admit that they were nibbling,
and would have rested more con
tented, had they been ineceesful in
admitting one-third of the number
assmbmbd as duly elected dole
'gates from the different parishes,
even if they were friends of Gov.
WVmoth, so that they could have
had some claim on the intelligent
Republicans throughout the State
as to their actions being legitimate.
i But in this they have failed. And
now, like the "wolf and the lamb,"
who clainied to have sustained an
injury from his grandsire, ho the
lamb must answer for it; their chief
aim is to deceive the tineducated
masses, of our people with th< cry
that Gov.. Warmoth has imposed
on Lt. (lv. Dunn, and has treated
him with contempt and in fact he
has treated Lt. Gov. Duna most
horrible; simply because Dunn is a
negren and Warmoth don't like a
"nigger" anyhow. -
INow sir, I ask, what is the great
wrong that Gov: Warmoth has been
guilty of doing to Lt Gov. Dunn 4
Was it 'beeame of the interruption
that he is reputed to have given the
Lt Gov. in those "little printing
'dntrea3t," or was it on account of
the disappointments he gave to
some of the Lieutenant Governor's
appointments ? If not either of
these, 'why then does the Lt. Gov.
hold 'IIe peace and refrain from
satisfying his constituents as to his
reason for this outburst against
Gov. Was'moth and the State Ad
ministration, of which he is a sub
stantial mshiber ? Can Lt. Gov.
Dunn expect the intelligent classes
of his race to sacrifice their inter
est; to be eamnered by the white
Republieen throughout the coun
try; denounced by all Republican
Governments as en ungratshul race,
by supporting 'an, ambitious or
ebaceited individual simply because
hele i colored man ? Is it not a
elear guin to earrace to drop such
leaders *nd filll their vacancies with
men who are more conciliating,
more comnptent, and .who would
h~sitate betore committing so gross
ani orror as has, been done by the
(Oisteohbouee faction of the Repub
licdh'phrty, said to be led by IlL
Gov. Dnan, in the attempt to gain
control of the Republican party in
this State for self aggraudizemeut ?
The clique say that Lieutenant
6overiho Dunn is about the beat
qualified man of color in the State,
Atting for the position of Governor;
and that be isathe representative
man of our race. What then has
become of some others we might 4
nam.'? Has the Customhouse fac
tion forgotten that they are still in
existence ? For instance are they'
noit aware that State Senator P. BR
8. Pinchbaclc in as popular a colored
man ah there is in the State of Lou
isiana? "Does not even Lieutenant
Governor Duna know that the poli
tical canreer of Mr. Pinchbaek has I
met tlse approbation of not only his
constituents in this State, but his
fame as £ representative men of his
race, reverberates throughout this~
eniet? This them should have

yet he claims to be working for th
good of the party and the walfam
of his race.
"The evils that men do, live after
them" and in this ense, we will end
that the Democrats when once in
power will undo in one seesion of
the Legislature what it required the
Republicans years of toil, suffering
and bloodshed to accomplish.
Yes, they would soon change our
status in this State And they wouki
not only neutralize our votes by
specific ordinanes, but then will
enforce political tortures upon ts
that will compel a great many, to
seek shelter outside of the State di
Louisiana. But I hope this will
not be the case; and unless our peo
ple have more enlightenment on
this subject, there is no remedy that
will save us from a Democratic de
feat in the election in 1872.
