REMEMBER YOUR FRIENDS AND
MARK YOUR ExaMiES.-There should
be kept and carefully preserved for
future reference, a Black List, or book
of Remembrance, in every parish,
wherein should be inscribed the names
of those white men, who in this emer

and duties of race, and east their lot
with the African. The infamous re
cord should be as conspicuous for all
time tocome as the pictures of noto

not be forgotten. Let their names
be written in the Black List with a
pen of adamant, that they and all
who deseend from their loins, to the

P. A. Smil3oNs,
Platform of the White People's
We, the white people of Louisiana, em
bracing the Democratic Party, the Con
servative Party, the White Man's Party,
the Liberal Party, the Reform Party and
all others opposed to the Kellogg usur
pation do solemnly resolve and declare:
1. That the governmnent now existing
in Louisiana originated in, and has been
mnaintained by force and fraud, in opplo
sition to the will of a largo majority of
the voters of the State; in opposition to
the principles of the Constitution of the
United States and in violation, of every
principle of justice and liberty.
2' That the dominant faction of the
Radical party in this State has, by false
and fraudulent representations, inflamed
the passions and prejudices of the ne
groes, as arace, against the whites, and
as thereby made it neceessary for the
white people to unite and act together in
self-defense and the preservation of white
3. That the rights of all men under the
Constitution and laws of the land must
be respected and preserved inviolate, it
respective of race, color or previous con -
dition, but we deny that Congress can
Constitutionally enact laws to forme the
two races into social union or equality.
4. That the white people of Louisiana
have no desire to deprive the epiored
people of any rights to which they are en
titled, but we are convinced that the re
forms imperatively demanded, can be
effected only by electing to office white
men of known capacity and integrity,
and we believe that large numbers of
colored citizens will vote with us to se
cure a government which must be bene
ticial alike to both races.
5. That we disclaim earnestly any in
tention of carrying, or attempting to car
ry, the approaching election by violence,
and that charges to this effect emanating
from our Radical enemies, are without
foundation and are falsely made for the
purpose ofobtaluing the aid of the mil
itary force of the United States in order
to over-awe the people, perpetuate the
existing usurpation anmd subvert the true
principles of the government.
6. That W. P. Kellogg is a mere usurp
er and we denounce hbn as such, that his
Igovernment is arbitrary, unjust and op
pressive; and that it can mantain it
self only through Federal interference.
2. That the election and registration
Slaws under which this election is being
conducted were intended to perpetuate
the usurpation by depriving the people
and especially our naturalized citizens of
an opportunity to register and vote, but
we announce, distinctly, that it is the
determination of the people to have a
fair and free electiohi and to see that the
result is not changed by fraud or violence.
8. That we extend to all our race in
every clime the right hand of fellowship
and a cordial invitation to come and set
tle among us, and unite their destinies
9. That while we are in favor of meet
ing punctually the payment of the legit
imate debt of Louisiana, we are immo
vably opposed to the recogneitionsle issned
in the name of the State, and we pledge
ourselves to make a searching investiga
Stion in the matter.
SWe advise our people to vote against
i the amendments to the Constitution pro
.posed by the usurping Legislature and
Spledge ourselves on the restoration of the
vemrment to honest hands,.to provide
orthe syment of all honest indebted

The Saturday Evening Post.
The Oldest and Best Story Paper Pub
Founded August 4, A. D. 1821.
For more than half a century the
Saturday Evening Post has been the
GREAT LITERARY WEEKLY
of the Country, and has ever borne a
widespread and unblemished reputation
for the unsurpassed purity, refinement
and excellence of the Serials, Sketches
and Miscellaneous reading matter.
It is pre-eminently
The Best Family Paper
that is published in thisecomtry, from its
never containing anything that would
oftiend the feelings of any one, either in
a religions or political sense, or that
could not be read at any fireside without
objection front the most fastidious.
The circulation of the Saturday Even
ing Post, through not quite so large
perhaps, as its younger contemporaries,
is not, like that of some of then, flnctu
ating, and too often short-lived, but
SURE, SOLID AND SUBSTANTIAL,
based upon the intrinsic meritof the pa
per itself and not dependent on any ex
traneous influences, such as the populari
ty of individual writers, &e.
Good, however, as the Saturday Even.
ing Post has been in the past, it is our
intention to make it still better in the
future, and with this object in view we
will effect a marked improvement in eve
ry department of the paper, and will
call to our assistance writers of admitted
ability and known reputation.
By increasing its former attractions,
and adding many judicious and pleas
ing novelties, by studying how. to please
and cultivate the popular taste, by in
creasing industry anq enterprise, and by
enlarged facilities, we hope to make new
friends with each and every issue, and
continue to maintain the claim of the
Saturday Evening Post to its title of Tun
