KELLOUG'S MIERCENARIES IT AMITE 'J
CITY.
What Thoy Did and What tho Pooplo Say.
From the Amite City 1),cmocrat of 2
the 26th we obtain the following account
of the proceedings had in that place to t
install the Kellogg oflicials. If we are a
lnot mlistaken, someC of our Union parish a
readers will recognize nn old acquaint
ance in the 11ev. Elia tcGeorge who
ligured. in the installation. The Demo- d
crat says: t
On Sunday night the mail train of t'
the New Orleans & Jackson IRailroad,
landed at this place about seventy 3e- d
tropolitan Policeenln, arnted with rifles. 1
They were condclicted to the Court
1 louse, it is said, by C. 1. Bradley, who
was defeated for Parish JIudge, ini No
tvetllbcr by over 250 majority, but who
has found favor with Vice Roy (Kel
logg, and has a dis(honest c'ontitni--ion
for said oflice. They took possession of
the public oftices. an Court 1 [onue, and a
oeeupied them during the night. On
Mondatl-y they formed ia line around that a
building and within it wore gathered
the Sheriff, Lanier, radley ll and the 1
RIe•. liais ;corge, who wba dtefeated d
at the election for Ileceriler, but who
has, like Bradley, a lellogg appoint- I
Inent. iBradley and (ieorge, after their
defeat at the polls, acquiesced in the re
sult and their suecessful oppiolnenlts,
Messrs. Addison and Cooper, \vere co in
mn issioned in December :and 'enterel 1
upon theicr respective oilicial dlutices. In
tFebriiary, after Cooper and Addison had
been in ollicofur mnore than two months
George anti Bradley received Kellogg
.Oinisiis-it5ll and sot iip ('aliiis to thlse
olli(es, not by ldematnuls uponct he ill
cumbents, lnor a resort to law, billt by
assutintng to discharge oflicial duties in
the guerilla style, a:way front tilht, pub)
lie olics. To install llradley and
George was the (ld''ai'ied obje'ct of this
police expedition.
)n Motlnday, thli regular term dlay: of
the i'Prish Court, lit 12 o'clock, the
Ipolibcenenl were put in line, :tlII ral:
icy, with his Sheriff, entered the court
room, ind lprohlhail7ed the court ini
session.
Judge Adtliscon then called on theconl
lianding officer, claiming the right to t
hold the termn as P1'arishl Judge, and
was told that he would bu pirevenlted
by force from doing so. I'Unabhl to a'
resist this force, the Judge protested
andl retired for the day.
Jas. F. Ard, IE:sl., l)cputy Sheriff,
was ealled to act as officer of the court'
but nobly refusedl to obey the usurperl t
1Vm. Duncan, Els., the District Attor
neaty, pro toent., of thl parislh was c:ll',l
but al-o refl-ted to respe.t or notice' the 1

TILE STATE MALADY.---TIE REHEDY. ,
Flromle the N. O. Pic:tyune.]
It cost just about a million dollars,
after the war, to bring to this State over
20,000 colored immigrants. That is
the rock on which Louisiana split.- - l
Every State in the South that has a
brought from Virginia and other States I;
a large number of colored Immigrants C
since 1865 has boon made poorer, and r
its government has been made more t
oppressive than before.
Louisiana should now spend a million t
dollars In bringing to the State multi- a
tudes of white farmers and mechanies, a
to settle in the Stato permanently, and i
own houses here, anti who will feel a
deep interest in supporting whllesolne c
laws and a good government.
If the State of Louisiana and the city I
of New Orleans a're worth saving, why a
not at once agree upon a i,..t of salva- r
tion, and then all haumd- t. . hold and il
help carry out the plant
Saving Louisi:anl is ioe, mlerely a I
buintlti : transaction. It w\:ill lake ahout
a mnillion dollars ito do tIo , ork tef tct
natty andi llt to la3 th doctto : bill. If wo a
allow the State to etxpire, it will cost at
vast. stun of money to pay Ilneral ex
pe'nses. It would die all iltnsolvelt i
debtor. I
As the natural incrt a- of our coloredtl I
pliontlation is ltss than the mortality
atmong that race, ourt agrietilture ustl t
yearly retrograde, tlil ltiln-teotthsl of
the tillable lands must remtain unttilti- I
vated for an itltin ite period iof tilmie, t
iperhaps hailfta century, if we tido n ot
tbring niultitudles of itilnligrants to, cil
tivalte thlise idle lands.
I t is doubtful if'l'exas or \'irginia hias
spent mor10e thn a million dollirs teatch,
sincel' the war, in inlnigratiion, anti yet,
'l'exsas hits added over .10i,t0i0 to hI er
population siniei 1101, and V irgini:1 las i
greatly strengthened hter rtural polttila

AN HIOUR IN TILE ROOM OF GEN. LEE. '
His O1ae Habits.
[Front the Lexington (Va.) Gazette.
In strolling around the first spring
day we stopped at the Memorial Chapel
and passed through the rooms particu
larly associated with the memory of n
Gen. Lee. The guard, a student of the o
univorsity, walked with us through G
the apartments.
Over the marble slab in the contre of
the room are wreaths of flowers, crosses
and crowns of immortelles in a circle of a
autumn leaves. The marble is inserted p
in the floor and over the vault.
From this room at door leads into the P
oflcoe once used by tile secretary of the h
faculty. This is now bare and empty. ti
From this apartment a door opens into IS
a small hall, and then into "thle Gene. s
ral's room," as it is called. It is alld. wol
known that its furniture has never been '
clhange tI. It reillains us left by (eit. It
Lee. tl
'l'ho round table in the centre of the ti
.,,rnt is still covered with his papers, c
a!l ot.i.rly arranlgetl. 'Tho scraps ot u

THE NEW YORK PRESS ON LOUISIANA.
The New York WVorld holds General
Grant responsible for the disorders in
Louisiana; be sowed the wind when he
set the example of lawless intervention
in the affairs of that State. Imitative
ness is the most notable characteristic
of the colored people. What the Boss
Grant does, must be a good thing to
follow, of course:
"LetGrantlookat hiswork inLoulsi
ana. It is heo who has interposed to
prevent the will of the people of Loti
siana from having its legitimate and
peaceable sway. He has put forth his
hand to hold in power the representa
tives of a miserable minority of white
and black rascals of the State. The re
sult has been what it was sure to be.
The rascals, flown with Insolence and
whiskey, confident of immunity and
help from tWashington, have set upon
the decent citizens, and in thoseparishes
where rascality is strongest chaos is
conto again. Ve need not step to pick
up the threads of this trangled skein
evon if it were yet possible. But for
every item of this villiany the Presi
dent cf the United States, who has set
it on foot against the desperate protest
of every Louislanian who had a char
acter and standing to lose, is ultimately
responsible. Let Louisianians whom
ies has exposed to anarchy, and all
Amoricans whom he has disgraced, re
tmentmber this responsibility and hold
him to it."
The New York Herald, referring to
the subject, says:
''The mistaken policy of GCon. Grant
in behalf of peace in Louisiana has been
produltive only of mischIef, confusion
and ditsordler. It is but justice to hin,
however, to say that he appealed to
(ongress at the lato stssion for a settle
Iment of this imbroglio, and that Con
gress, lacking theo moral courage to sot
tie it, left tihe whole subject, to the dis
eretion of the I'resident, as the two
hItouses left the M\oritonl tdificulty, and
that the Plresident, adhering to the Kel
togg goverlmntliiit, Its lhe had notified
Congress he should do, if left to his dis
cretion, has nutado it def/uto the ,tate
(iovernolntt.'"
The Now York Commncrcal Adver
tiser says:
"T'le bloody entcute in Louisiana
shows one thing very plainly, to wit:
That whent blacks attack white, whito
will unite with white, without distluac
tion of party, to put down black. Hore
is the great fact of race antipathy do
monstrated by the irresistible 'logic of
events.' Amtong the whites of Colfax
thero were mlon of various political
opinuions, but they sunk all such differ
tollnce, alti hid anded together as against a
icO1liiimon Cot_. ile is noI true frlend of
the iiegro who teaches him ll ither to
utneorvatlue or dlisllievo thogreat truth
which this conllict hlins so terribly Illus
tralctl."
