Prof. Wilcox has now entered upon the
labors of the tenth year of his connection
as President, with the Homer Masonic
Female College. During that time the
rango of studies has been as extensive as
any institution of the kind, and the mode
of Instruction has been to impart athorough
knowledge of those studies. The discipline
in the Collego and Boarding Department has
been iirml, constant, but parental. The
health of the pupils has been invariably
good. In confirmation of the above, refer
ence is contidently made to the patrons of
the Institution and former pupils scattered
throughout North Louisiana.
Additions are being made to the Boarding
house, so that a large number of pupils can
be accommodated in the family of the Pres
ident.
We, the undersigned, having been ac
quainted with the workings of the Institu
tion during the time it has been under the
management of Prof. Wilcox, very cordial
ly reconllnnd it to our friends as a suitable
pilaco to send their daughters.

SENATOR BOOTH TO USURPER KEL
LO(GU.
PAIRSII PRIsox, NEw ORLEANS,
April 18, 1873. 1
VWno P. uKellogg Esq., Acting as if Governor
of Louisiana:
When I had the pleasure of address
ing you a letter, on the 12th inst., in
which I expressed some doubts as to
your being a Governor at all, I did not
think that through your agents you
would have given me so speedy an
answer in a mode and manner so per
suasive. And yet, when I remember
that line which spoke of our bringing,
by discussion or your right to be called
Governor, unquestioned right in pres
ence of undoubted force, I cannot be
surprised that you have taken me at
my word, and under the thin pretenses
of the mere agent of your tax collectors,
that I owed your government-which
I say is no government-the sunm of one
hundred dollars, you have brought into
requisition the machinery of force, to
prove to me, at all events, that sitting
on bayonets you are determined to rule
by terror.
I say nothing here of your reprehen
sible and utterly unconstitutional at
tempt to collect a debt by imprison
nlent.
I say nothing here of the nameless
and shameless one who, having just
changed masters, cheerfully eats yours,
as he did his former owner's toads, and
having engorged himself with the ven
omous dish, struts his petty hour at the
bar, as he has upon the bench, earning,
as he thinks, the reward of his super
serviceable zeal.
I say nothing here of the touching
and noble sympathy of an outraged
people which found utterance in the
court-room, and accompanied me to
this Parish Prison. But I will say here,
that if this is the style of your Govern
ment; if, as I now charge you a letter
about you on the 12th is to be followed
by an injunction from your agents on
the 14th, a motion to fine and impris
on for contempt on the 16th, and the
Parish Prison itself on the 1Sth, we can
see in it the assimilation of that on
coming period when life itself shall
be enjoyed only as you shall permit.
Two of the three principal objects of
existence you have already stricken
down. Property, Liberty; gone under
your pretended government. What
remains now but life to our poor people
of Louisiana ?
"Stands Scotland where she did ?"
"Alas poor country, almost afraid to know
herself."
And yet, sir, can you expect to sit
and reign in peace while you destroy
the people?
"Had Zimri peace wiho slow his mas
ter?" Can you arrest, and fine, and mn
prson dissentients, simnply at your own
sweet will, and escape that mental tor
ture which fastens upon a self-conscious
usurper, and bids him, like the skulk
ing criminal, see ill every bush an
officer'?
I am well aware, sir, of tile nature of
the garbage that will be served upon
the talle of thle ''New Orleans Corlno
rant," ill defense of this or any other
act of its present idol. Skilled in the
viler arts of traduction and calumlny,
and well supplied with pulblic pluler,
it will natually see wisdom and dignity
in every act of your infatnilous opplres
sions. It will applaud vwhat it will
call your firmness; it will urge you to
greater outrages; and yet, I will add, it
is ready to sell you, when occasion
serves, as it has alreadty sold a forler
master, Judas like, for thirty pieces of
silver.
Do you think that a dose of lParish
Prison is a good prescription for a case
where the 'a'Prdee'' comlpronmise hias
failed to cure? Are you prnactising oi
the IIahlnueman doctrine that ''evils
cured evils," and that were Louiisiana
is as sick of you as sire evidently is, you
will restore her political Ilealth by put
ting her Senators il jail for terms pro
portionate to the virulence of the dis
ease? Let me assure you in advance
that your present course is bound to
end in failure. The people of the State
are not ready for your heroic style of
treatment for political disease. Your
panderers, personal orjournalastic, mray
cover you with the slime of a fulsome
service, but the people, cormpulsorily
dosedl with you, vomit you Lup as they
would a nauseous emetic, and lno quan
tity of political dissenters or lopponents,
converted by your iahyonet (.overn
mint into parisih prisoners, can ev'er
make you sit as other than a siek'naing
nmass of corruption upon the publici
stomachll. If this language is strong, it
is not stronger than the walls of this,
prison. If it should involve rle ill
what the ,"Cornrorant" regrets I have
not already incurred, an action for
libel, I can only say that being tihe
captive of your how and spear you must
excuse imy tongue until you can get a
gag law passed throughi your Bayonet
Legislatutre. Burt, sir, prisoll or no
prison, freedtlomr, like truth, will live
when you hIave gone. Louisitlna will
survive you. I suspect your dleep lairl
plot to ruin us, and with other citizerns
will ende'tvor to thlwart you. In fact,
it is chelaper to resist your than to sulb
nit to you. out propslose to charge usi
all we are worthl for yoar isels'iss servi
ces, when the truth is, you wouli he
as a CGovernrrr ldear at iany price.
If I tdo not get out of your prisoun t,
morrow, I will write yoru again.
Romainirngat your order, I :amr, et.

RIESOLUTIONS TO TIE POINT. I
At a large meeting of the people of
St. Helena, presided over by Judge
Muse and addressed by Gov. McEnery, 0
Messrs. Waggaman, Ellis and others, t
the following resolutions, reported by t
Judge Carter,were unanimously adopt- o
ed amid cheers: C
Resoleed, That in strict loyalty to b
the government of the United States,
in all its departments, and claiming its 0
protection while yielding obedience to I
its authority, we, the people of this r
parish, withhold solenuly and deter
minedly our recognition of the Kellogg
government until it shall have been S
tinally recognized by the sovereign ft
authority of the United States. u
2. That in our judgment and solemn Y
conviction the said Kellogg govern- 0
ment can exercise no righlitfl or consti- P
tutional authority over the citizens of 0
the State, and that we will continue to P
regard it as a usurpation until the sov- o
ereign authority of the Ui.ited States h
shall have pronounced otherwise. I1
3. That we will yield it no voluntary ti
support, nor countenance or respect its i
authority any further than compelled a
so to do by the military authority of v
the United States. s
I1. That we owe it to our country, to 1
her laws and liberties andt her Consti- 11
tution, to our children, and all who e
shall follow us, to resist the lawless Y
usurpation by all the means in our d
power. 11
5. That inasmuch as it must depend f
upon the final recognition of the so- s
called Kellogg government, whether t
the payment of taxes to said govern- -i
ment would be any protection to the c
citizens or tax-payers agailist a second t
payment in the event of the constitu- 3'
tional government of Louisiana being L
finally recognized, and the payment r,
would be in the meantime a voluntary b
support of the usurpation, we, the citi- f:
zens of this parish, are resolved to pay a
none, at whatever cost, peril or sacrifice i
the resistance may be made, so long as i
the authority of the so-called Kellogg
government is alone invoked to enforce ij
the payment. sI
6. That we regard with repugnance c
and unqualilled condemnation all at- to
tempts to obtain authority under the c
Kellogg usurpation to till and exercise C
the functions of the various civil oftices o
in the State, and that the attempt to do s'
so must lie regarded by every good II
citizen as an attempt to trample under d
foot the vital principles of a free and 1
Constitutional government. 1i
7. That we regard the act of the Kel- 3
logg government which has organized tI
the Metropolitan Police of New Orleans n1
into three brigades, under the command 0
of the (iovernor and otlicers :iappointed
by him, with full authority to order C
thenm for duty to any part of the State, '
as no more nor less than an overt act, 9
anld a tlagrnit attempt to establish at
standing army in the State of Louisi
ana, in a time of lprofound peace, and it
thus brilg time people of the State into I
subjugation to an armeid despotism in I
open andul palpable vilation of the ('on- I
stitution of the United States, section t
10, article 1, which declares that no t
State shall withouit Ilile consent of ('on
grtss ''keep troops or slhils of war ill
tinme of peliace."' itegarding the rabove 1
nnmed military organization as utterly r
slllurvrsive of lthe rightts and Iilberties of
the Ipeople', we are resolv.ed that while I
we ido not piropose to oltiler any resi.s
tane( to thile military autlhority of thie
United States, we arle irmly resilved I
to resist with a:ll our enercies as free- V
ine'ln the armned j:ullisaries of this faul .
Ilusurpationll. * *

RACY SPEECH IN THE PENNSYLVANIA
LEGISLATURE.
On the evening of the adjournment C]
of the Legislature, on motion of Mr. a
Brockway, of the House of Represen- a
tatives, Senator McClure was invited "
to address the House on the condition a'
of political parties. The Colonel dis- it
charged this duty. Although the merm
bers appear to have treated his remarks i
with levity, he said many things that b
ought to have made them hang their is
heads in shame. These State plunde- Ji
rers made nothing by that investment.
lIe addressed thelm as follows :
"M-,r. Speaker and Commoners of the
State of Pennsylvania: 1 thank you b
for the distinction you have conferred
upon rile by your Invitation to address
you upon the subject of reform. I know
of no other body of men, either of the I,
present or past, that needs instructions d
on the necessity of both public and ti
private morality, so much as the llouse
of Representatives of this State, now st
hbtore mte [laughter], or that has so tl
bIro~adly and deeply experimented in at
the line of individual and official pro
fligacy. [Laughter and applause.] 1
anl not surprised, however, that it Is so 0
when I consider that of the members
serving in this Hlouac fronm my imme- 1
diate locality, manly were not even
.nominlated, and few, if any, were ever
elected. [Shouts of laughter.] I sent
you reform bills that cost tie many tl
days of anxious thought and labor to
perfect, but you danced not when I
piped to you, neither did you weep re
spOllsive to my mourning over the de- Ii
generacy of the body politic. I must
admlit, however, that you were prompt
executioners, for every bill that looked a
toward refornl was negatived vitlh au
yell as fast as the rules would allow.- ti
But in political, Its often in moral and
religious cycles, the darkest hour is just sI
before the datwn of day; and it is grati
fying that after you have consummatned e
all the harm you can possibly inflict
tlpoal the State, you halve by aI unanli
moas resolution called for a conlfessor.
[Laughter.] It was well to pause thus, 0,
just for the sake of novelty or reLerence
so that wlhen the tempest bireaks you ft
canl point to this becoming act of con
trition for the wrongs done to your
constituents atnd to theCommnonwealth.
[Apiplause atnd sarcastic shouts.] Most
of you who have for three tonths beeoon
serving in the placces to which other
amen were elected by the people, have
discounted the retributive wave of
popular reprobation by creating ofliccs 0
Ly legislative enlactmnents, to whicht
you hope to retire; and those unparovi- i
delt for lhope to be placed on the ilndeil
nite pay roll of the pasters anci folders
of the HIouse, itsll cordance with the
Prevalent customll here to pension de
cayedt statesmen. [Shlouts of laughter.]

CAPTAIN JACK AT HOME.
The correspondent of the San Fran
cisco Chroniclo writes from the Modoc
camp: The principal portion of the
camp is situated in a huge opening or
widening in its ravine, of perhaps an
acre in area. On all sides of this open
ing, which seems more like a hugo
wash bowl than anything else, the nat
ural wall rises a hundred feet or more,
but it is easily scaled, for the inner side
is inclined, and the rocks are sharp and
Jut out all over it. Once in this basin
there is but one open way out, and that
is by the trail by which we entered.
There are other ways out, but they are
by tunnels leading to the many caves
or sink holes In another part of the lava
bed, and which will be more fully des
cribed further. On the outside of the
basin there is a succession of ridges as
high as that which encloses it, but these
do not extend all the way around. To
the west of the basin is a flat, table-like
surface of lava, extending-from the very
summllit of its rim clear back for more
than a mile. In this level placeare the
sink-holes or caves formed thousands of
years ago, perhaps in the cooling or this
immence body of molten earth. The
openings of the holes are very small;
indeed, one does not see them until he
has almost fallen in. But they widen
as they go down, and their sides being
sloping- one can pick his way to the
bottom without difficulty. Most of
these eaves are connected with each
other and with the larger basin by sub
terraneous passages, so that one can go
for half a mile in the bed without com
ing to the surface at all. This is of in
calculable benefit in defending the
stronghold, for one man can keep 100
at bay almost anywhere in it without
fear of being smoked out or having re
treat cut oil.
After supper, which, by the way, was
shared with a keen relish by about a
dozen naked babies, 1Bogus Charley
cante and said ho would conduct us to
Captain Jack. So the whole party
gathered up their blankets and follow
ed. Charley led the way right up one
side of the basin, through a little trail
not easy of ascent by unpracticed
feet,and a cross the levIljplace about fifty
yards, when we catme suddenly to the
mouth of a pit hole, at least forty feet
deep. The hole inclined as it led down
ward, and at the bottom widened and
formed a perfect cave, extending under
the rock at least fifty feet. At the
mouth of the cave proper, butyet thirty
or forty feet below the surface, a piece
of canvas was stretched.
This was Capltain Jack's front door,
and the cave behind it was his abiding
place--lth lpilaco of the Modoc king.
IRETI IREMENT OF' IEFOIRM CURTIS.
The Christian Union has this concern
lbg the rctiremcnt otf Christian Curtis:
\Ve do not go too far when we say that
thousands of the most intelligent citi
zleis, in voting for the re-election of
General Grant, were intluenced mainly
by the earnest and eloquent assuratuces
of r r. Curtis that the 'roesieut was
devoted to civil service reform, and
that his continluance at the head of the
gc.vtermntlnt liar another terml would
put an allnd to the wretched anltud delmor
alizinug l,ractice, heretofore in vogue
with all Ipartics, of bestowing oilkce as a
revward of panrtisan service. And now,
within at itimonth of (Uen. (traunt's rein
:auguratioul, Mr. Curtis halss felt himself
couliselled, Iy consliderations affecting
his own' self-respect, and In disgust on
ac',ount of promnises unfulfilled, to with
draw fronl tIhe Civil Mervico 1Board.
We fear we must accept that withdraw
ial as the end of all our hopes of civil
service reformli during the present ad
Iliuistrationlh. The politicians and
ollhlce-nnongors have i victory, but the
etnd is not yet.
