Among the many utterances of the
press bidding us urge that the Con
vention ratify the majority vote given
in favor of Baton Rouge for State
Capital, none are more appreciated f
by us than those coming from our old I
and tried friend, Addison. We have
been enlisted in that righteous cause ]
many months, and mow that we are c
backed by the unmistakable will of
the people, we mean to stand to it ,
until the representatives of Louisiana 4
shall have obeyed the admonition ex
pressed at the polls in November last.
Aye, the politicians must not look to
the maintenance of the Capital, amid
the pleasures and the luxuries that
the Crescent City afords. The hum
ble oelmen Who bears the burthen of 1
taxation imposed upon his all for the l
sppptot of our State govbrnment, de
nsands that while, hq labors at his _
plow or in the workshop, his repre
sentative will have the patriotism and
public, spirit to diminish the charges
that weigh upon the commonwealth 4
by every meas"tr that will afford 1
It is no new experiment; with the
Capital at Baton Rouge a class of
men will come to the General Assem
bly who are not seeking a sixty days' t
frolic, They will come to work for
Louisiana, outside of the corrupting i
influences of a large city, and the hun
dreds of thousands of people who stay
at their country homes the year 'round
will no longer have their interests sac
rificed in order to afford one hundred t
and twenty men, and Messrs. the State 4
officials, a luxuriant sojourning place.
The time has come when every man
will be expected to do his duty, and t
in order that this may be done, all t
selfish motives must be thrown aside. i
Every patriotic Louisianian must i
remember those days when our sol. I
diers marched to the battlefield bare
footed, ill-clothed, half fed, and with
out pay, offering up their lives to
maintain our liberties, and the honor c
of our State. No such sacrifices are
demanded of the representatives to
the State Convention. They are ask
ed only to frame a constitution that t
will restore good and economical gov- t
ernment, in order that the march to- f
wards our common happiness and
prosperity may be taken up at the
very earliest day.
The very first reform measure to be
adopted is the restoration of the Capi
\ tal to the place designated at three
different periods-AT BATON ROUGE.
The people of this parish, on last ;
Tuesday, honored the editor of the a
CAPIotaO , by electing him as one
of their representatives to the ap
proaelhing Convention. We frankly
admit that it is becanse of our known
seal in the causnee of this resetoration
that we have been selected. Yes,
friend Addison, with Messrs. HIERRON
and Youro, we all be Mhere, ready to
remind any representative of the peo
pie who i$lght so far forget his duty
in this particular, that Louisiana has
decreed that the Capital must and '
shall be removed to its ancieht site.
We do not expect to find a single
man opposing the insertion of the
clause affirming the verdict rendered
at the polls, for we believe tlat the
people throughout the State have
elected none other but those who will
fearlessly obey all their wishes.
We go to New Orleans confident of
successe, Addison, and we expect to r
find among those fighting at our side
the worthy delegates of "old Vermil
ion," whose views we know that you h
A widow intenhing to succeed her i
husband in the management of a ho- I
tel, advertised that "the hotel will be I
kept by the widow of the former land
lord, Mr. Brown, who, died last sum- li
mer on a new and improved plan." 1
A coroner's verdict reads thus: "The ti
deceased came to his death by excess- it
ive drinking, producing apoplexy in ti
the minds of the jury." A country rl
paper says: "A child was run over ft
by a wagon three years old, and cross- g
eyed, with pantalets on."
Whenever a man begins tofeel that
he is so great that the country .is
standing in the middle of the road ,
waiting for him to come by, it is
about time for his friends to look up
some soft place in a lunatie asylum to a
lay him down in. r
& young man who has tried every
thing else and failed, writes to the
Vickaburg Hemrad to inquirehre therequi

answer: "A bottle ofwhistky, a lead

he For some time after the call for a
at Constitutional Convention, aand so
e long as the names of the candidates
4. mentioned were of the class that
would be acceptable to the majority
of the people, and so long as it ap
I1 peared that the Republicans would
n- make no regular nominations, the Pat
m iah Central Committee of the Demo
te crate party, was inclined to leave the
dl field open to a free competition for the
Id suiftges of all voters.
re When it became apparent that the
le Republican party was in process of re
ro organization with the view of drawing
of the lines; it became necessary to arrive
it at some plan through which the votes
ia of, all those desiring the election of a
I- good representative ticket' might be
t. concetitrated on three among the sev
1e oral candidates who were spoken of.
Id The Parish Committee was assembled
it to deliberate over the situation, when
i- it was deemed inexpedient to call a
f party nominating convention for the
e following reasons, vis:
- The short space of time intervening
is until the day of election, coupled with
a- the fact that some disaffection had ex
d isted during the late campaign, when
a number of good and tried men had
bh espoubed the Independent or Green
d back cause, hi opposition to the reg
ularly nominated Democratin ticket.
1e The probability that many of these
men would remain aloof, and thus
'withhold their support from the selec
leons made under strict party rule,
r and thus imperil the success of desira
Inasmuch as nearly all the gen
t tlemen whose names had been spoken
d of had manifested a willingness to
submit their claims to a fair arbitra
tration, the committee, after mature
deliberation, resolved to adopt the
plan of recommending the candidates
n from among those who were willing
d to withdraw their names in the in
11 terest of harmony and unity, and thus
Sin an amicable way dispense with the
it holding of a party convention calcu
Slated to encourage the formnation of a
' regularly organized opposition.
* The wisdom of such a course be
Scame apparent as soon as the names
r of Messrs. HeTrron, Young and Jas
e tremski were presented for the tsup
port of the people. While many citi
zens expressed their disapprobation of
t this course, a larger munumber accepted
" this ticket and gave it their unquali
I fled support. Independents, Green
d backers and many Republicans gave
0. in their adhesion to the "Capital
Democratic ticket." In the mean
Stime, the Republicans held a conven
tion and nominated a colored man,
" Louis Francois, for Senatorial dele
gate, with 8. H. B. Schloonmaker,
another member of that party, and
e took up to complete the ticket for rep
resentative delegates, the name of Mr.
8. P. Greves, who had declined to
Sabide by the plan of the Democratic
n committee. This list composed the
Sopposition to be encountered by those
Srecommended by the committee.
lThe personal friends of Mr. Greves
gave that gentleman some votes while
giving their other ballots to the two
on the "Capital ticket," and the bulk
d of the Republicans supported Mr.
Greves on theirs.
Despite the above opposition the
regular ticket of the Democratic com
mittee swept its opponents from the
field, and routed them, "horse, foot
and dragoons," after a lively and spir
