' OUT OF THINE OWN MQoUTH WILL
I CONDEMN THEE, THOU Wtaos.
With his natural and care
fully cultivated disposition to
pervert and misrepresent
facts, E. L. Weber, who has
so gallantly won the spurs as
the CHAMPION LIAR of the
times, and has been, more
than once, so proclaimed by
his own brother ; with a low
and artful cunning peculiar
alone to himself, attempts in
the last number of his paper,
to fasten, by the cowardly
method of inference, the
crime of murder upon some
white citizen of our parish.
He knew when he penned the
article in quimstiou, that it was
a tissue of falsehoods; he
knew full well that it was the
emenation alone of his own
malicious heart; that heart
that would not scruple to cast
the suspicion of so dark and
damnable a .deed upon his
neighbor, to purchase a mor
sel of political capital for the
base, venal and unscrupulous
party of which he is so worthy
a representative. But his
venom, like that of the slimy
reptile, of which he is so per
fect a type, has poisoned his
own blood-the projectile he
aimed at a fellow-creature
has recoiled upon himself, and
he stands to-day, publicly con
victed by one of his own par
ticular followers, a negro of
unenviable reputation, as a
base, cowardly and unmiti
gated misrepresenter of facts.
The subjoined testimony, tak
en before the Coroner's jury
of inquest, will exhibit this
man in his true character. He
says Joe Armstead told him a
certain thing-he sh ears to it.
Armstead swears he said No
sUCHn IsNG Here is a ques
tion of veracity between two
delectable gentlemen, and
while we have no confidence
in either, we incline to ac
cord more credit to Armstcad
than to his white chum.
We know that though the
Coroner's inquest has elicited
no information leading to the
dissolution of this mystery,
that there are clues which
may be worked up, with pa
tience and ahppv!'-_on, and
which may, sooner or later,
establish the guilt of this das'.
tardly act right where it be
longs. The following is Web
"Ephraim AJrmstrong, another
colored man, was shot near Gas
per's Branch by an unknown per
son, (so it is said) and instantly
killed. From the most reliable in
formation that we could get, it is
said be was shot by a white man
who bought a horse from Mr. Leo
We invite the attentive pe
rusal of our readers to the
testimony that follows:
A. J. Reynolds sworn, says : I
am publisher ot the Fcliciana Ledg
dr. Know nothing about the kill
oing of Ephraim Armstrong. The
article in the Ledger saying that
"from the most reliable information
received, Ephraim JArmjtroog was
killed by a white man who had
bought a horse from Mr. Leonard,"
,as hnqded him by the editor, Mr.
E. L. Weber.
T. L.ouard sworn, says: Isaw
the arflcle in the Feliciana Ledger
in 4hich the murderer of J.rmm
strong was said to have bought a
horse from me, I here state that I
save not sold a horse in six months
to either white or black.
E. L. Weber sworn, says : I
am the editor of the Feliciana
Ledger and wrote the article refer
ed to, as to the murderer of Eph
raim Armhtrong. I got my inlor
matisao m Joe .Armstead, who
said hdb~5o his information from
French Jim or some other person
who had heard Wash Walker maker
that remark, who1, Armstead saidi
would have testified to that act i
he had not b~Jn afraid.
Joe Armstead sworn, s : I
don't know anything a out the
killing of Armstrong. . Web
er was in the crowd when the re%
mark was made about th urderer
of Armstrong and the horse having
been bought from Mr. Lefnard. I
don't know who made the remark.
I don't know, from any r able in
formation as to the killing I did
not tell Mr. Weber A t Wash

HAYES AND WHIEELER AS
The recent action of the "Amer
ican Alliance" in endorsing the
Republican candidates for Presi
dent and Vice President, no long
cr leaves it a matter of doubt as to
the position of these gentlemen on
the question of the rights of our
fellow citizens of foreign birth and
those who hold the Catholic faith.
Indeed, although their proclivities
towards native americanuism have
been undoubted, yet we were not
prepared for so bold and emphatic
a declaration of the fact as their
unqualified endorsement by this
The position of our Catholic and
foreign element, in the approach
ing election, is very clearly stated
and defined in the oath of the
"Alliance," which binds its mem
bers to labor for "'An amendment
to the naturalization laws, limiting
suffrage to persons born in this
country, or of American parents;
the election of American-born citi
zens only, to official positions in
this country; opposition to the
interfercnce of Roman Catholic'or
ganizations in the political affairs
of this nation, and opposition to
the formation of political organiza
tions composed exclusively of for

of Rutherford B. Hayes, of Ohio,
for President of the United States,
and William A. Wheeler, of New
York, for Vice-Prcsident e; the
same, are hereby indorsed by t:ie
American Alliance in conference
assembled, and we earnestly advise
all who go in favor of American
principles, as advocated and set
forth in these resoiutions, to give
the-e nominees an active and de
"As advocated and set forth,"
viz : that the right or suffrage be
limited to persons born in this coun.

shall ie denied the right of holding
office, and that no Roman Catholic
organization shall interfere in the
political affairs of the nation i
Here is your asylum for the op
pressed of all nations 1 Here is
your land where no man shall be
interfered with in the free exercise
of his religious opinions. The re
lations between Knowoothingismn
atnd Hayes and Wheeler are so
conclusively established by this al
liance, that further comment is un
necessary. Suffice it to say, that
no foreign-born citizen can vote
for Hayes and Wheeler without
self-stultification, and no~,iel"ic
can render them counteasance or
support without virtually adjuring
his religion. There a4 a few,
(thank God, very few), editors that
we know of, who will be terribly
cramped by thie latter proposition,
or elseotheir professions of Cathol
icism 'has been a mighty sham.
