1W noticedia :e last number of theSt. Landry
Whig, a veryjudicious article on the Bard of
Commissioners, created by the last Leg iature. to
supersede the present organisation of the Police
Jery. We regard the measure as one of great inm
portance to our Parish; we hope, as our neighbor
does, that intelligent, enterprising and energetic
Vfen will show their public spirit, in permitting
their names to gobefore the people sas candidates
for thi highly important ollice.
We ihlly agree with the editoisfthe l1hig, when
"While on this subject, we would suggest, that a
Convention be c #ed as soon as practicable, compo
sed of thecitizedns St. Landry, indiscriminate of all
parties and sects; the object of which shall be to
nominate suitable candidates for this office. By
this means, oaio and incompetont aspirants will be
kept at home, and proper persons elected..
And in order that these incompetent aspirants
tmay not obtrude th lelves ugon the public too
early in the action, I0ould suggest, as a preven
tative, that the meeting spoken of by the Whig,
tihe place at some early period in the month of Au
gust next,-a t the ticket thus formed by a friendly
mderstanding ofall parties and sects, will receive
the combined support of the voters of the parish
of St. Landry--"ndt littld we'll reck" vhat be

These pleasing figments of the imagination
ilhplinated with joy the visage of Young A
merica for about twenty-four hours from the
time of the reception of the Telegraphic ad
vices. Nothing could be pleasanter than the
idea of our getting into a muss with somebody
-Spain, Cuba, or Mexi o. It just suited
Young America, and gave that chivalrous
paAy an exalted estimate of President PIER
CE, leading them to the conclusion that he did
not intend to suffer his policy to be control
led by such superannuated rapresentatives of
obsolete i as Cass, BUCHANAN and the
like, but w alved to adopt the novel, bold
and vigourons doctrines put forth by those
later interpreters of Democracy, who flourish
in the pages of the Democratic Review--scri
bes who impart to their pens the keen edge
of a genuine Toledo--and who, albeit beard
less as a youthful[DAvID, are sages as any
SOLOMON. The quiet and seemingly pacific
course of the President from the time of his
inauguration, had somewhat disappointed and
grieved Young America, and the chivalry of
the party had began to fear that FRANKLrN
PIERCE was little better than an Old Fogy
in their eyes the nec plus ultra of political
antiquity and hopeless prejudice. But the
despatch from Washingion sassured them,
and once more they were cheered and encou
raged by bright visions of manifest destiny and
Alas for thejnstability of human expecta
tions. e facts given bythe Tele gapli were
probably correct but the conclunms were
the mere inventhons of the operator. The
danger of war existed no where but in the
mind of the framer of the, dispatch, who pos
sibly added his wise conclusions to stirte
the lblic apptite and furnish 'a :ezet his
news. Foilo and behod ! the very next day

purcbase 1ir the United States an additional
sti. of land, which will take in the whole
valley of the Gila river.
We are cadly afraid that Young America
will blaon tra wait a while longer for
a 4ght. We den"think it will fleslits mai,
den swoedr n Mexican scalps thistilte. The
President appears thoroughly to understand
the advantages of goI will and peace with
the natiorcontinent, andhile firmly
asserting, 1ndtppared to maintain our own
rights) is not disposeo p*at by our strength
and the weakness oflur neighbors, to force
them into degrading concessions, or compel
them to enter upon a contest from which they
can reap nothing but disaster. It is an evi
deopw of real patriotism ael statesmanship to
exhibit rbearancepwardsfeebleness. What
ho could we gain by another war of
quest and'annexation with Mexico? To

HARRIET BEECHER STOWE.
There are few of our readers who will not hearti
lv join in the remarks below. upon the character
aThe unwomanly author of"Uncle Tom's Cabin,"
which we extract from the May number of the
',SouVtERN LADIES' BOOK." They are fromr the
penai from the heart ofa true'woman,-4he Editoir
s($i Magazine.-and are a just and withering
rebuke to one who has degraded herself in the eyes
of all her lovers of truth, peace and brotherly union;
"The name of Benedict Arnold is branded to all
coiting time; his memory is that of a traitor andhis
epitaph a living curse; but no epithet can be found
in the langnage of mnan fitted to scar the name of
IHarriet Beecher Stowe. As a woman she has an
sexed herself -as an advocate. she has stooped to
falsehood.--as a witness, she has perjured herself.
-as a mother, left obloquy to her children,--as a
sister in one great rtional family. vilely slandered
her own sister.-and as an American, expatriated
herself by her own act. She has thrown a fire
brand into, he homed of her own people, which she
designed should set at nought the great measures I
of peace and unity, which cost our beloved and
venerated statesman, the master-spirit of the age,
five years of his natural life ! True, such means as
she has used, may never be able to overthrow the
tree of our Liberty, or sap the foundrstions of the
tenipleof our Uniou;-yet we would to well to re
member that the purest souls are oft' times sullied
by the vilest agencies; that the fall of the whole
human racel-that "Sin, the wages of which is
Death," came into the world by the inluence af a
reptile, he very lowest of the "creeping things of
the eaith." An old lady friend, possessing much
knowledge of the world, once remarked to us
"Trhere's much fewer mean women than men, in
this world, child, but when once a woman is mean,
bless you, honey, the men ain't a circumstance to
'em for meanness!" Probably she was correct.
Arnold was atraitor. but the treachery of Mrs. Stowe
is a thousand times more black and bitter: the guilt
of the former was the revenge of a defeated ambi
tion, that of the latter is the cold venom of a nature
naturally and irremediably vile.
Ir The old United States frigate Constel
lation, has been nearly torn to pieces, pre
paratory to the rebuilding of the new "Con
stellation at Gosport Navy Yard. The old
battle-worn servant was built in. Baltimore,
in the year 1796, and has seen years of active
service. The pieces which will compose the
keel of the new ship, and which are being laid,
have been buried in mud several feet under
water for over seventeen years. They are
perfectly sound, and look as though they were
but recently taken from the forest. They
will be made worm proof, as will all the tint
ber composing her frame.
THE CHINESE REBELLION.- Trouble be
tween the French and English.-The edi
tor of the Philadelphia Inquirer has seen a
letter from on board the U. S. ship Plymouth,
dated Hong-Kong, March 24th, in which the
writer states that the most universal topic
was tha Chinese rebellion. The rebel army
was much larger than the regular army, and
the head or chief represents himself as a des
cendant of a former Emperor. At the last
accounts they were surrounding Nankin, and
greai*rs we~e ent.rtained that that city, as
well asPekin, would be destroyed. The wri
ter also says:
In conformity with the request from Chi
nese authorities, the British had dispatched
two steamers and a brig of war, to assist the
troops of the Government. The U. S. stea
mefrSusquehana had been sent to Shanghai.
Capt. Kelly was the senior officer of the sta
tion, in place of Com. Aulick. The Missis
sippi was soon expected, and great impatience
waau.maaifeted' for l~ arrival. Q ex
eitement revailed fin consequence of an af
fair at ~anton between the French and En
glislh The French Consul undertook to raise
a flag.pole or the parade-ground occupied by
foreigners. The English prevented them,
i~ereupon the Consul wrote to the Captain
of a French , stating the whole affair 1
thEhim. He t Lieutenant and a draft
marinesao Cantoni,to protect the flag. ThI
Lieutenant first civility requested the Eng
lishman to desist, and on reusing, he,'in con
nection with his men, drove every opponenit
from thqe. uare, and immediately proceeded
to erect g-staff.
The wrier adds, that it is doubtful' if the
United .tates expedition *rill go to Japan this
season. The squadron will not reach Hong
Kong before July,-and will not be ready be
fore August. The coast at that time is very
dangerous, and a delay may be deemed in
SWrrT TRAVELING.--A gentleman arrived
in this ity yesterday, who had left Liverpool,
England, on last Saturday week, the 14th
inst., occupying barely thirteen days in the
voyage. The Atlantic steamers cross over
now in a few hours more'than ten days, and
sixty-six hours are sufficient between the sea
board and this point. This is certainly uni
ting the centre of the American continent
considered but a few years since as too re'iote
for any one else than the curious trqveler
with the shores of the old world, in a proxi
mity so close that it even startles us ia this
wonderful age of wonderful performances.

IT is a fact, established beyond the shadow
of doubt, by the experience and testimo.
ny of the most eminent physicians, more than three
fourths of the diseases with which children are
afflicted, are caused by worms, and thousands of
children die annually from those diseases, when the
cause is either not known or attributed to some
thing else. Various are the preparations which
have been recommended as remedies for worms,
but experience has proved them all more or less
ineflectual: the end however has at length been at
tained, and a remedy found which has never failed
to destroy worms, wherever they have existed.
This assertion is supported by the testimony of the
most eminent physicians and respectable individu
als in the country. The remedy is
WARRANTED PURELY VEGETABLE.
It is safe in itsoperation, and more easily admin
istered than any other. Some of the symptoms
which indicate the existence of the worms in the
bowels, are as follows: the countenance is pale, of a
leaden color, and suff'used with occasional flusheit
the eyes are heavy and dull. the breath fetid, the
upper lip swolen, itching in the nostrils, which
cause the patient to pick his nose: the sleep is dis.
turbed, the patient often awakening in great fright,
and is liable to starting and grinding the teeth: the
