The Alexandria Democrat, of the 9th,
says in regard to the drouth:
The drouth continues, and no ohange
appears probable. The sky presents the
same unvarying aspect--eloudless and brass
like. There are dark days ahead of our
planters; and gloomy forebodings fill the
breast of all. Nothing short of a long con.
tinued rain will save the crops, especially
that of corn; and in view of the fact that
a very, large amount will be required to
make up the deficiency of last year, the pres.
ent prospect of a second and more gener
al failure is most serious indeed.
The Concordia Intelligencer states that
a few drops of rain had fallen somewhere
in that section of country recently, and that
a day or two of chilly weather had been
The Bayou Sara Chronicle, of Saturday,
says: At the present writing there is not
the least indication of rain. Dust in abund
ance. In some parts of the country the
wells and springs have almost been exhaust:
ed, and planters have to drive their stock
six or seven miles in order that they may
procure water. Cotton that is up has not
suffered for the want of rain, but the corn
crops needs it badly. The cane crop is
suffering material injury from the drouth.
The last Shreveport Gazette says: Not
withstanding the dry weather, the crops
look well. There is now a prospect of rain.
On Tuesday night there was a thunder
c~oud west, and there must have been a
The Natchitoches Chronicle of a recent
date has the following:
The fatal effect of this protracted dry
season are plainly visible in every planta
tion in our parish, and justify the most gloo
thy forebodings as to the future. .This un
towardu state of things, superadded to the
c:ontinued low water, gives to the people of
Northern Louisiana, or at least the Red
River country, the utmost depression of feel
intgs. We speak truly when we say that
in portions of this and the adjoining parishes,
actual want and destitution prevail.
Among many poor families. there exists a
want of the necessaries of life, arising from
thet suspension of navigation, and conse
quutnt general scarcity of supplies, while
the drought has cut off vegetation to such
zut extent, that these people are deprived
o,' mucn which might afford them relief in
thuelc " hard timcs."'
TnTl: PIII' AI IELlPIIA ELECTION--The vig
,,rm' .editor of the Pennsylvanian thus an
,nies'(ls the defeat of the Know-Nothings:
The Monster which was born in iniquity
d1,,, in despair last night at 8 oclock, of a
,uease which always killed traitors. Nurs
,,d by the spirit of fanaticism, its growth
wam as rapid us its death was inglorious.
Proscraiptiou in its worst form ravaged the
city for a year, and sought to drag down the
intelligalt, the honorable and manly, from
their high estate, to grovel in the mire
which the Secret Order had created. Base
in its conseption--luser in its birth-and
basest in its manhoodl-the Know-Nothing
Order struggled with a courage incited only
i,v crime, and after a momentary phrenzy,
perished like all other ephemera, in the hour
of its greatest strength. Who will hereaf
ter doubt the patriotism and integrity of
the high-minded citizens of Philadelpha?
Meni may be proscribed for their birth place
and religion for a season, but the sober
second thought of the people, who Osteem
the rights of conscience and kindred too
highly to let either perish, will speedily
restore them to their constitutional privil
cges. The death of Know-Nothingism in
the first year of its power, should teach
every other miscreant organization, that
the soil of liberty is not adopted to their
' his is, indeed a glorious victory. Let
our friends be watchful, until the official re
turn is made, or they may yet be cheated
out of their election by Know-Nothing Re
turn Officers, who regard the oath they
have sworn before the Lodge as paramount
to any other obligation which can be impos
ed upon them.

'rThe following, fromthle oston Post, is com
mended to the careful perusal of southern
"The New England know-nothings are
coming out officially upon the anti-slavery
platform. It is stated that at the recent
meeting of the Massachusetts council in
this city resolutions were passed in favor
of the abolition of slavery in the District of
Columbia, and in all the United States ter
ritories, and declaring that no more slave
States can be admitted into the Union, but
that slavery may be unmolested where it now
exists. The State council for New Hamp
shire met at Concord on the 1st and 2d,
and adopted resolutions protesting against
the repeal of the Missouri Compromise,
and against the Nebraska bill and fugitive
slave law, and pledging the party to resist
the further extensions of slavery. These
facts will show the southern' brethren' the

TEI) STATES REVIEW, we intend to republish all
the state papers extant on the question of state
rights as announced in the Virginia tResoiutions
of '98 andtl '9. The publication will emnbrcne
also the works of standard writers, such as
John Taylor of Caroline, whose works are now
nearly out of print. These valuable political
data will be carefully collected, and when com
pleted, will furnish a complete constitutional
history of our Federal Union. The subscrip

prospectus of which was issued under the ap
probation of the Democratic members and
senators in congress) will he furnished regular

It is time for us to go go back to those pure
prilciples upon which the great fibric of lde

that the friends of state sovereignty should ral

wild latitudinarianism of the age, and evident
tendency of the republic towards concentration
-to end at best in a mixed monarchy. It is
time for each states-rights mian to feel that he
