PRACTICAL RINTS ABOUT TAXES.
If Kellogg's tax collectors shall
proceed to advertise for sale all the
property in thisState returned for non
payment of taxes to them, we guess |
that of the 89,924 square miles compri
soed in Louisiana, 20,000, at least, will I
be offered for sale. As nearly every I
man in the State is already land-poor,
and would be obliged to Mr. Kellogg if
he would sell their lands for them at
equitable figures, it is not very clear to
our mind where purchasers are to be
found, especially when Mr. Kellogg's
title is the only reliance for future
Two things are very important in
effecting a sale: one is a market with
buyers, and the other is the capacity to
make a good title.
Buyers of land in this State, even at
taxes and costs, is a thing out of the
order of probabilities. A people who
can't buy a year's supply of bacon and
corn are not in a condition to expend
much money for land. Besides that,
the land is not wanted, and unless an
individual wants land, no matter how
heavy his purse is, he Is not apt to buy.
WVe do not know what he might do,
however, just to please Mr. Kellogg;
but in the present rather nervous con
dition of the public mind, one would
have to love Mr. Kellogg very tenderly
and to covet a piece of land very pas
sionately, to hid it in at a tax collec
The tax-paying people are not only
down on the Kellogg fraud, and have
their minds minad up to defeat it if
they can, but they are out generally
with the exorbitant style of tax-gather
iug under which they have groaned
and struggled for four years. They are
restless from being over-crowded by
drones, and they are ready to swarm
in force. It is no respect for the drones
that troubles their meditations and
labors, but a want of concert and unity
in a plan to get rid of them.
HIappily, circumstances conspire to
unite the people and to intensify their
opposition to the Kellogg government.
No parade, or even public avowal by
any prominent citizen, has boon made
of the fact, but it is certainlya fact that
there is a large element in Louisiana
not overly tenacious about paying all
the debt said to be due by the itate.
There is another element--a large
Itadieal element, too- that neither
history nor tradition eulogzies for strict
pecuniary responsibility, or sensible
alpreciation thereof, and which is as
much opposed to paying Mr. Kellogg
at, Mnr. Anybodyelse, and vice verusa.
Another class of people there is, who
are now organizing to stop the payment
of taxes by any one. Without further
enumnmeration, we close the list with
thatt large and sorrowful host of citizens
who are too poor to pay taxes, even if
tIhey were ever so willing to pay.
IHere, then, is a formidable array of
opinions and interests all tending, either
actively or passively, to tile same end.
Does Mr. Kellogg really beliovo that
hin abortive government can survive
the constant pelting and worrying of
suchl an opposition ?
To do it, it must have friendtls,-right
tly ibe out of the question. Who are
tihe Isurpers' friends? Can tihey buy
:iState at tax sales? Can they and will
they defy P'ublic Opinion to the extent
of being denounced, ridiculed and tle.
spised wherever they appear? Will
they attempt to dispossess of their
houses and their cattle and their furni
ture the poor who are .sold out by Kel
logg tax-gatherers? WVill they dare
drive mnlen, women a.I4 children into
the streets and highways?' If not,what
are they going to do with the farms or
the dwellings they buy? If their pur
pose ,he to drive people from their
homes, hlave they considered what it is
to provoke the anger of a fathier and a
husband who finds himself the home
less victim, of avarice ilnd robbery ?
We do noIt believe that urmen are so
thouglhthls as thus to invoke the nmor
tal enmity of their unofiuending fellow
As to Mr. Kellogg's tax titles, we
simply say tllhat whenever they shall be
properly tested, they will be decided to
be worthless. T'ile law does not recog
nite force and might as having the
power to give titles to property; much
less do they sanctify fraud in its suc
cesses, he the victim one citizen or the
citizens of a whole State.
We urge the people to speedy organ
lzation for the maintenance of their
rigllts and the preservation of their
little all. There is no such thing,
-there can be no such thing,-as the
pernmanency of tihe Kellogg usurpation.
* A disgraceful dissolution is inthe'rnt in
its very composition. till the free- I
born people of Louisiana submit to be
robbed and driven from their own
firesides, where cluster all the earthly
joys dear to them, by this usurping, Z.
Assassination of Mr. McDonald. //
Nothing has been developed at
Vernon to satisfy the inquiry as to the
cause of Mr. McDonald's assassination, t
or the individual who did it. Mr. John r
Barnard, whom Mr. McDonald appears e
to have suspected as the guilty party, v
proved an alibi before the Coroner's in
quest, and now demands an investiga
tion by the courts. The Vernon Stan
dard, commenting on the horribleaffair
in a well-written article, is unable to
furnish any clue to a solution of the t
bloody mystery. It notices the fact
that the deceased had strong personal n
enemies, and was at times bitter in ex
pressing his views of politics, and says,
as we know was true, that his family r
were apprehensive that, at some time, t
he would be killed. The Standard con
demns the horrible deced in language
not to be mistaken, and in this reflects
the sentiments of the good people of r
S\Ve do not believe that politics had
anything to do with this aflhir. The
deceased was our preceptor long years t
ago, and we would do him full justice, t
as he then did us; but the reputation of
a whole parish is something of surpass- c
ing value. Mr. John Ray has entered
the list of letter-writers, and, in the Re
publican, has a letter written to his
colored friend and recent traveling
companion, Mr. DeS. Tucker, from
which we extract the following:
You know Mr. McDonald was one of
themost prominent and worthy citizens
of North Louisiana, and thus far I have
not heard that he had had any personal I
f difficulty with any one. It is suspected a
that the fact that he had earnestly
espoused the Republican party-his son
having been appointed tax collector of
Jackson parish-and he being an out
3 spoken and earnest friend of Colonel
r Green and his sons, was the offenceI
i which caused his assassination. I most
sincerely hope that some other solution
of the matter will be had for this most
foul deed. 1
If Mr. Ray really hoped that some
other solution than being the father of
Kellogg's tax collector, the outspoken
r friend of Col. Green and his sons, and
a Republican, could be found for Mr.
SMcDonald's assassination, why did he
not suggest all the solutions which
t might be given ? Is he of opinion that
when a Republican is assassinated, that
the best reason to be given is that he
was a Republicann? Is that a rational 1
reason in Mr. Ray's opinion? If not,
r why should he offer that alone as the
prime and only cause in this sad case ?
Mr. Ray, while well posted in much
of the lamented dlceased's history, is
altogether ignorant, it appears, that he I
was a maln of very strolig projudices
and bitter animosities. The intimacy
t which existed between t te wo and the
r well-known strong personal hatreds of
Mr. McD)onald (which, as we know, in
son01e instances,at least, werejjust) utterly
refute the idea that Mr. Itay, as tlcaes
ed's friend and otherwise well-inforiured
as to his life, did not know that there
r were other solutions which might he
given for the :assassination. \Why (lid
t not Mr. Ray, give, frankly, as we did,
3 all the points ill the deceased's charac
'f tor, whell one as likoly as the other
might have afforded a solution for the
Sassassiin's act '.' The motive is too lchar
e not to be called in question.

More Negro Atrocites In Clalborne--Who t
Is Responsible I
Ho.MER, LA., April 8, 1873. 1
Old Claiborne seems to be getting
ahead of the other parishes in outrages
and crime. It has not been very long
since the outrage upon the person of
Mfrs. Kidd was perpetrated, which
ended in the horrible death of that un
fortunate lady, and we now have to
record another outrage upon the person
of a young married lady, near Haynes
ville, which, fortunately for her, only
terminated in her being frightened
pretty near to death. The aggressor
was a negro of a bad character who was
living at the time with the young
lady's father. He had previously made
the remark that he wondered that the
white women in the neighborhood were
not afraid to be left alone, and Mr.
Thomas, the young lady's father, was
warned by parties who had heard the
negro make the remark, but he told
them he would take care of him in his
own yard. But the negro, taking ad
vantage of 5Mr. T.'s absence from the
house, went into it, and tried to out
rage the person of the young lady. She
resisted him to her utmost, and being
alarmed by her screams for help, the
fiend in human form drew a knife and
tried to kill her by cutting her across
the abdomen, but was prevented from
committing the foul deed by the lady's
clothing, which he cut nearly to the
skin, and then becoming alarmed lie
fled. Soon after, the whole country
was alarmed and in pursuit, and the
news reached here that he was caught.
I hopo that by this time he has met
with such punishment as such a brute
The other case is that of a mulatto,
living about ten miles from here, com
mitting a rape on a little colored girl
ten years old. He violated the little
girl in such a shocking manner that
medical assistance had to be called In.
The negro was brought to town to-day
and committed to await his trial at the
News also conies to us from the Ar
kansas line of a horrible murder com
mitted by two negroes on two German
peddlers. Rumor says the peddlers were
overtaken on the road by the two
negroes, and killed with an axe which
they carried. They were in the act of
concealing tho bodies in the bushes,
when they were surprised by a white
man riding along the road, and who
would have shared the same fate of the
two unfortunate peddlers, had lie not
presented a good navy-six to them,
and, turning the tables, marched them
off as prisoners. An excited people
made short work with them, hanging
theml near the spot of their late horri
ble crime. They had in their possession
about $i500 which they had taken from
the pedlers. Their atrocious deed met
with a speedy and just punishment,
and their bodies are now datngling itn
f the air, a prey for the vultures. .T. s.

FUIRTIIEIi DETAILS OF TIHE ATLANTIC
N:v YoaRKx, April 7.-IIarry Jones,
an Englishman, saw two survivors
lighting for the possession of a pair of
boots on a dead body ; they finally de
cided by the toss of a penny which
should have them. Two Swedes delib
erately chose to die with their wives
and children rather than leave them
and swim ashore. Edward Figgins, a
Hampshire brick-layer, and twelve
companions in the compartment with
him, escaped by stripping off their
clothes and squeezing themnselves
through a port hole.
Richard Reynolds, of Queenstown,
who kept a diary during the voyage,
charges that many of the crew acted
very cowardly; he said that one of the
men who escaped by the port hole was
wedged in for several minutes, unable
to move either way, but finally escap

through a port hole the lad John lien
ly, the only child saved. 'iThe little
fellow cried out through the port hole
that his ather, mother and brother
were all drowned and asked to be
Ilhelped out. The boy was met Ihere by

the observed of all observers at Castle
Garden, thile affecting meeoting between

about forty feet from the rock on which
the survivors first landed. The officers
of the Coast Wrecking Company, who
came over in the forenoon full of an
idea of raising her, at once saw that it
was impracticable. It is impossible
that thile ship could ever have reached
this position without the greatest care
