The mass meeting called for Ward 3,
by a vote of 38 to 37 was adjourned
from Thursday to Tuesday, 11th inst.,
on account of inclement weather. The
attendance was ample for a ward meet
ing, but many of the conventionists
thinking that a fuller expression of
opinion can be had on Tuesday voted
with the anti-conventionists on the
question of adjournment. It amounts
to nothing--the ward was ours Thurs
day and it will be ours next Tuesday;
it was merely staving off the dreaded
moment. Every ward in the parish
will be in line before next Saturday,
and certain men who consider them
selves the parish of Ouachita will be
politically at rest, to the peace and
well being of her inhabitants.

The river continues to fall rapidly,
having fell no less than two feet since
our last report. Owing to the heavy
rains of this week It is probable that a
rise will soon set in here, or at least
have the effect of checking the rapid
decline, but up to this writing there
was no perceptible change. Neverthe
less, there is plenty of water still left,
and the prospects for a late closing of
navigation are very good.

fall she will relieve the Ouachita Belle
in the Bayou Sara trade, and then we
suppose that the familiar and welcome

The New Orleans Delta calls our at

75 of the State Constitution. On the
22d of March we published the amend
ments, and at the foot of number nine
was "strike out art. 75;" at the foot of
eleven was "strike out arts. 83, 85, 86,
87, 88, 89, 91 and 133." The Baton
Rouge Herald is now publishing the
amendments substantially as we did.
We have examined the journals and
the acts of 1878 and find that our pub
lication and that of the Baton Rouge
Herald do not correspond with them.

following delegates were chosen to at

The question of the expediency of
calling a convention to frame a new
constitution resulted in the affirmative
by a unanimous vote.

THE COINING PRESS.
The coining press is a massive engine
of mirror-like steel and brass. It is
fed with the blanks through a verti
cal brass tube in the same way that
the milling machine is fed, and a very
charming young lady satisfies its ap
petite, which demands eighty blanks
a minute. Its power is that of the
toggle joint, and it moves with the
soniferous rock of a baby giant's cra
dle. As the blanks reach the bottom
of the tube they are seized singly by a
pair of steel feeders, similar in motion
to human fingers and thumbs, and
carried forward and lodged in the col
lar between the upper and lower dies.
At the same motion the lever is de
scending, and, by the timne theplanchet
is in position, the toggle-joint, brought
into a vertical position, imparts to the
piece a pressure which, within the
narrow limits of its motion, is almost
incalculable. The immediate relaxa
tion of the joint causes the upper die
to be lifted, when the feeders, coming
up with a second planchec, push away
the one already coined. The pklanchet
before being struck, is slightly less in
diameter titan the steel ring or collar
into which it drops; but the pressure
upon the dies causes the piece to ex
pand into the collar, and takes from it
the reeding or fluting of its edge. The
tinkle of the falling coins and the
measured swing of the machine are
musical, and would interweave with
other instruments in a miser's sym
phony. Do they awaken far-reaching
thoughts in the girl who fills the tube,
and sees the insensate press casting off
the coins at the rate of more than
fourteen millions a year? Every time
she hears the tinkle in the box near
her feet an inestimably powerful agent
is entering the world, and from the
machine to which she is so carefully
ministering come the multifarious evil
and good of all civilization.-Apple
ALABARIIA IEMHOCRtTIC TICKET.
The ticket nominated by the Demo
cratic State Convention is in every re
spect an admirable one. WVe spoke
yesterday of the merits and strength of
the distinguished gentleman who is
named for Governor. A man of great
- prudence, a wise legislator, a lawyer of
a distinction, a citizen of unusual energy
Sand success in business, Itutus VW.
Cobb has shown himself in every rela
tion of life the possessor of those high
qualities which will adorn the position
Sot Governor and render service to the
people whom he is called upon to gov
ern. Familiar with the wants of the
people, by a service of eight years in
the State Senate, Mr. Cobb will bring
to the office of Chief Magistrate that
information which is needed to guide I
the ship of State safely and surely. As
successor to Houston he will carry out
the measures of reform which were
happily inaugurated by the new con- 4
stitution and the Legislature of 1876.
He will preserve and advance the
credit of the State, as he has preserved
and advanced his own personal for
tune. The man who is a success in his
own business affairs may be safely
trusted with the graver affairs of State.
The great hope of society is individ
ual character, because it not alone af
fects the individual himself, but also
the society in which he lives. Emer
son says that the characters of men
make the conscience of society in which
they live. Benjamin Franklin attri
buted all his success among men to the
character he established for himself
and not to any brilliancy of intellect.
Character is capital in itself. It is a
victory organized, and does not do
pend upon birth, fortune or influence.
There is no capital goes so far or pays
so well, and bankruptcy in character
is seldom repaired in a life time. To
establish character, feelings have to
be disciplined, habits moulded and
controlled in obedience to reason and
moral conscience, and when properly
fashioned make the surest passport
through life. We find in everyday life
that when a person of doubtful charac
ter circulates a piece of news it is re
ceived with suspicion, whereas, when
it is attributed to a man of character
people listen with eager Interest and
conviction. The best time to test a
man of character is when the tide is
against him. George Washington
was a true example of a man of great
character, who showed in times of dan
ger and difficulty a force of will, a
tenacity of purpose, that have never
been surpassed. It is a loss of charac
ter that has filled prisons, poorhouses
and lunatic asylums, and only when
people appreciate the true worth of
character-how jealously it should be
guarded and transferred as a precious
heritage to their offspring-w-ill the
world furnish fewer causes of human
misery, sorrow and degradation.
Ben. Taylor, a colored man living
in this place, has lately returned from
WVashington, whither he has been to
secure a patent for a new steam engine
which he has invented, and which,
if the judgment of many experienced
and scientific men to whom he has
shown his model is correct, is calculat
ed to revolutionize the present applica
tion of steam. The engine is rotary,
having the steam applied at the cir
cumference of a wheel, giving this
treble the force of ordinary engines,
with no distinguishing of power at
the various stages of the revolution
of the wheel. This invention dispenses
with all the machinery except the one
wheel, which answers at once the pur
pose cylinder and driving wheel, and
two steam boxes through which the
steam is applied. It is estimated that
engines on this plan can be manu
factured at one-fourth, or less, the cost
of those now in use, and their sim
plicity and the possibility of making
them of extremely light weight will
extend the use of steam engines beyond
the present limit. Ben. Taylor, the
inventor, is a sort of mechanical
genius, having before manifested an
insight into mechanics of no ordinary
degree. His invention, if nothing fails
-and the probabilities are in his favor
-will rank him among the first in
ventors of the day.-Rosedate, /Miss.,
The Supreme Court of Alabama
holds that the marriage of a white per
son with a person of the negro race is
a punishable offense, and that the law
which provides for such an offense the
penalty of not less than two nor more
than seven years' hard labor is not in
conflict with the act of Congress known
as the civil rights act. This is a re
versal of a decision by the predecessors
of the present Supreme Court of Ala
bama, to the effect that the civil rights
bill conferred on the negro ,"the right
to make and enforce contracts, among
which is that of marriage with any
citizen capable of entering into that
relation." The court holds in the
present case that the law making such
marriages punishable is valid because
no discrimination is made in favor of
the white person, either in the capa
city to enter into such a relation or the
penalty, and that, moreover, at the
time of the passage of the civil rights
bill ,"similar laws to that of Alabama
existed in several, perhaps nearly all,
of the Northern States whose represen
tatives in Congress voted for that act."
In view of the previous conflicting
decision, the court recommends the
pardon of the person upon whose case
Quite an important and rather queer
invention was explained to the IHouse
Committee on Commerce the other
day, by Mr. 1. J. Adams, of St. Paul,
MRinn., designed to establish perma
nent channels in rivers. Hie asks for
an appropriation to thoroughly test the
usefulness of the invention, although
It is said to have already been tried by
the English and French governments,
and proved successlul. The invention
consists of a line of tubes, with valve
openings, laid in the centre of the bed
of the river, from one end to the other,
irrespective of distance. This pipe re
mains permanent; into it water is
forced by a pump at its head, while a
gate at the extreme end secures the
pressure. This invention acts some
thing like a submarine battery, the
opening of the valve at any place
needed forcing the water out with
such power as to abrade tlihe sand or
mud in the neighborhood of the tube,
keeping it in suspension until the cur
rent carries it away to low places or
sloughs. The committee took great
interest in the invention, and reques
ted Mr. Adams to again appear before
It. He has been engaged on this sub
ject for the past nine years, and has
obtained three patents.

A Novel Feature
Presents itself to those who use Parker's
Hair Balsam, in the discovery of its
rare and remarkable merits. Many
have written us expressing their de
light in the fact that it works like a
charm. Its disinfectant properties in
chemical combination rendering it
healthful, cleansing and healing are
bearing fruit, and the beautiful hair
it produces, with the clean, healthy
scalp, entirely freed from Dandruff
and falling hair, are achievements for
which we have reason to feel proud.
A patron assures us that he has used
twelve different Hair Preparations and
that Parker's Hair Balsam surpassess
them all. To hair that has become
gray or faded, it restores that beautiful
natural color of youth, and produces a
vigor and luxuriance that surprises
every one. Buy a bottle from U. W.
