The name of Laurent J. Sigur-the lear- that
ed and eloquent advocate and tribune, the unlot
fearles and pure minded politician, the just ed p:
and generous citizen-will ever remain among Le
the brightest in the esteem and honor of those us u
of his native parish who admire superior ge reare
nius, wisdom and worth. No man in his the d
State among its private citizons, and few if of Dl
any in a public capacity, ever had a greater stitu
c!aim or reputation for high statesmanship tenac
abilities, for political foresight, and for all the i teet
qualities in fact which shed lustre on man tic.-s
and his memory, tihan did Laurent J. Sigur.- in i
In all the walks of his short but glorious ca- actic
reer, whether in public or private life, it was patr
as evident and inelfaceable as the impress of
the anvil, that principle, and principle alone,
above all feelings of sellishness or of grovel. A
ing ambition, was the guiding star of his life, thre
"come weal or come woe!" Iton,
These remarks were induced from the cir the
cumstance of this lamented citiz'n being p,
again brought to our nind in conseqtuence of reru
the course he took in 18.57, in defence of the by t
very principle for which the friends of Breck- whi
inridge and Lane are now contending-whiclh prei
was the cause of the Constitutional Democ- preo
racy of the South withdrawing itself froi the day
abolitionized Democracy of the North untler beyt
the lead of Doug!a.--and which, if he had con
lived, would have placed the gifted Sigur, to- to
day, alongside of the equally gifted and pa- to
triotic Yancey, in battling for Southern Rights i m
and the E(quality of the States. cur

S "Yesterday was the day appointed for the
e reception of Mr. Yaneey; and I never saw
such a cr of people as that which flocked
by to the i. O. end Jackson Railroad Depot to
the met him; and when he wa seen, such a
p a- burst of applause I never heard in my life as
us! was that which greeted him.
"From the Depot Mr. Yaneey wasu ecorted
as to the City Hotel by the various clut4qlith
m. their banners and music. A friend beckned
p of me out from among the ruaks of the Yoag
Mo's Breckinridge Guards, with whom I had
been marchiag in prncession; and following
0 him up stairs, I was introduced by him to
5 Mr. Yaneey. I must aver that I was never
2 so proud in my life as I was at that moment
--seeing distinguished gentlemen waiting for
3 oan introduction, while I, a poor butcher's boy,
was admitted to the honor of a few moment's
eonversation with the most distinguished son
of the South. It was an event to be forgot
ac ton only with the loss of memory and of life.

papers. The crowd present was variously es
timatei from twety to forty thousand. At
his conclusion the shout that went up was
enough to animate with life the bronze orator

'"I go from here to Paincourt, in Assump.
tion, where I am to speak, and, you may be.
liter, I will do my best. I had no amusement
in the c:ty. My time was almost wholly oc.
cupied in reading and writing. To Mr.--
of Ascension, under whose patronage I was
the receiver of so much that was gratifying,
I owe a debt of gratitude I cannot forget."
