At eventile when sea winds softly moan t
O'er wimbled rocks and wastes of yellow t
1 love to linger on the cliffs alone
And watch the sea-t-he wide blue sea 11
Where for away alotna the barren shore
The waves go rolling in with sullen roar.
On-tlme.s a maiden with tie sweetest grace I
Comes and waits here wlhen faintly blows
And as I watchl her with her anxious face
I think how often, fr beyond these seas,
I. too, would wait like her npon the shore,
Fbr one that came ss me-nh, nevermore.
Sometimes a pretty child, with prattling
And laughing eyes comses with her to the t
abut. sick at heart, I turn and think of one
Like her who long ago once smiled on me; I
Moan on, 0 sea! moan on forevermore,
I know nmy child lives on a happicr shore. s
Anons there peers up o'er the purple ring
A white ship coming in the golden tide,
Ab ! happy maiden, may she quickly bring
An blseent lover to thy yearning side
Not like the ship that with her burden bore
My life and love from a.e forevermure.
The dying lay burns slowly in the we t,
And lingers long above the restless sea; r
The curlew wails around her rocky nest;
The gloaming creeps up o'er the distant
It closes round the ship and sea oul shore,
Bus still the waves umrua on fureerlre.
I watch the ship down in the offing loom
And anchor safely by the harbor bny; ;
Her sweet bells murmur through the gather
And bear so some the tidings of great my,
Joy hells like these I, too, have heard beLere,
But they brought grief to me forevermore.
0, happy earth, why turn I thus away!
Why well up to my eyes these idle tears?
0, memory, why haunt me night and day!
O, happy sea, why speak of other years?
Roll on forever on thy barren shore,
let sell me nt of years that are no more.

Potter Committee has clearly proved:
1. That a conspiracy was entered into by
cettain iepablican leaders, the object being
o hbold o election in East Feliciana, Gmnt,
and other Democratic parishes.
2. That the fact that no Republican votes
were cast in Fast Peliciana was not due to
intimidation, as alleged, but was owing to
Anderson's advice so the Republican leatders
eot to voe, as it would have a better effect
than all the aeidavita that could be produced.
3. That for a period of two days after the 4
election the Republican leaders admitted that
Tilden and Nicholls bed carried the State by
a heavy majority.
4. That when is beasme evideat that the else

made for tie parishes of East and West

I erroneously state that the rate of i
+ the State tax, under the present con- I
stitution, is 103 mills, etc., and that i
the State and Parish tax is 14 maills I
combined. I was led into this error i
by taking the statement from parties j
who were as illy ilformed as anyself. i
•i I make the correction, that those par
ties opposed to a convention move- I
went may not attribute unfair designs 4
to the advocates of a convention. I
k Yosywill, however, see that the argu- I
a .at based upon these statemenuts is
.ot materially weakened, from the I
tfact that they (the asmendments) do
not guarantee the "retrenchment" t
which has been promised the people. -
The fact will not be denied that "re- t
forUn" and "retrenchment" were s as
clearly and unmistakably expressed 4
in the electors vote for the last State 4
ticket, as it is certain that Governor t
Nicholls was elected.
It is no argumenrt for the opposi
tion to claim that the expenses of the a
State government demand these high
races of assessment. On the contra- I
ry, it is indisputable evidence that the I
constitution, nor the amendmentsI
either, propose, to "cut down" the ex- i
penses of the government so that the
assessment may not be a burden to
the taxpayers. If the expenses of
the State government of Pennsylvania,
Georgia aud Alabema are so small as
* to limit the assessment (in the highest
limit) to five aills, why, we ask, may
not Louisiana be entitled to the same
n (almost) nominal assessment? I

ment is based upon the granite of
* truth and can not be successfully con

Some of the parishes in North Lou
isians are showing a great deal of eco
centricit7 in their mannoer of making
nominations. In Claiborne for In
stance, there will be two primary
e!ections, in which all the voters of
the perish, regardless of politics, will
take a part. Everybody can enter
this first race as a candidate; but at
t, the second election, the names of
1 those two persons receiving the bigh
" est vote for any office are alone to be
ei For Union parish, the Record sug
N gested an even stranger system. It
wanted a convention to nomainate
candidates for the legislature; a meet
ing of lawyers to suggest a candidate
, for parish judge and a scrub race for
r the other oficers.
' Although the Record's suggestion
was not adopted, the mode finally se
y lected by the parih conventien is al
e most as singular. A primary
election is to be held, open to
i all candidates. The two candidates
I securing the highest number of votes
ae t this election are to be considered
,the democratic nominees. That is,
there are to be two candidates for
parish judge, two candidates for aher-.
if, etc. It is dificult to see the prio
eiple upon which this plan is based,
un less it be tha the people of Union

this year, and to shoot down any maud
who attempts to take their cotton.

have even gone so fat as to threaten
to burn up sod plunder the town of

spring-it was resolved that every
thing should be kept a profound secret
until the first of September, so as to
enable the members to get all they.
could out of the merthaats during.
the summer, but an dfort to forme.
