Wiltz's circular letter to the sheriffs, assessors and tax col lectors of Louisiana, refers to one of the most umnanageble obstacles in the pathway of the administra tion. The Democrat 1ms on many occasions discussed the cumbrous and unwieldy nature of our finan eial methods, and shown how im possible it is for the State, under existing regulations, to properly utilize its resources and realize its legitimate revenues. The defects are radical. They cannot be rem edied by any application of the law, however ingenious. The law itself must be overhauled and the evil attacked at its source and fountain-head. To that end it was peculiarly appropriate to call to gether those officials whose expe rience has shown them the char acter and extent of the question at issue—whose familiarity with the practical operation of the law will ha ve prepared them to devise the suitable corrective. The Goveuor has asked the sher iffs, assessors and tax collectors of the State to meet him in the Senate Chamber at tlie State-House, on Wednesday, October Iff, and we sincerly trust that these officials will honor his request with prompt and cordial response. The finan cial embarrassments of the State are not essential. The resources of Louisiana are abundantly ade quate to its liabilities. But so long as the existing processes are ad hered to, our finances will remain crippled and our delinquency will increase. A full and free discus siou of the subject, and an inter change of opinion and experience and suggestion by those officials who for years past have had the workings of the law constantly be fore them, should evolve a practi cal and permanent remedy. We re peat our aspiration that tlie coufer enee may he universally attended and that a stop may he put to the blundering methods which involv ed us iu 8ucJi unfortunate contu sion.

Louis man had been up to Dead wood and left, owing a man several hundred dol lars, which was to lie paid as soon as he got home. Manning met the man in Ht. Louie, and he said he would hand him the money next day, hut days passed and the mon ey did not come, though tlie man was amply able to pay. One morning Maiming inserted a personal iu one of tlie newspa. pers to the effect that if the man who left Deadwood between two days did not pay tlie money he forgot to pay, before night, the whole circumstance would he pub lished the next day, The notice was signed, ''John Manning, Hher iff of Deadwood." Before il o'clock a young man called at Manning's Hotel and said be had come to pay he had borrowed to get out of Deadwood. Maiming found out who the money was borrowed from and took it to carry to the Dead wood citizen, remarking that he was not the man referred to, but it was a mighty mean Hheriif who would not carry money to a frieud. The next man to call was the one he wanted, and he paid the money and apologzied, and begged tlie Hheriff to say nothing about it During the day seven citizens of Ht. Louis called on Maiming and paid him money for citizens of Deadwood, believing the Hheriff' had reference to them in his no tif e; and after he had gone away, another eitizeu ««died and asked the clerk tor Manning, but the clerk said the other fellows had all been there and paid up ? and this man had better keep his money. The Hheriff'said he always thought advertising paid, but he never had it deruonsG ated to his satisfaction before. iu at be its ter at his and and of of left the on : \ The Dead President. [N. O. Democrat.] James Abram Garfield was born on the nineteenth of November, 1831, at Orange, Cuyahoga county, Ohio. He was the youngest of four children, and soon after his birth his father, Abram Garfield, died, leaving his mother with a hard prospect in life. She is a wo man of strong character and won derful energy. When James was quite young he was of service to the struggling family, and by the time lie was 12 years old helped considerably toward its comfort and support. The Garfield house hold endured the trials of severe poverty, and the early days of the future President were passed in such privations as have fallen to the lot of few tenions men. At sixteen he was a raw country boy, full of vigor, and already remarka bly well educated for his opportu nities. He hud a boyish idea of going to sea, but was dissuaded from doing so by his mother. He was then serving as a common ca nal hand. When he was 18 he was enabled to attend school by the industry and privations of his mother. He taught school and saved $300 with which he started to Williams College in 1854. Finishing a bril liant course there, he entered Hi ram College as professor of ancient lauguages. His first appearance in polities was in a Htate campaign. In 1830 he was elected to tlie Htate Benute us a strong anti-slavery man. He attained great influence in the Leg islature and was considered one of the readiest speakers and strong est debaters in the body. When the war began, he entered into it with great enthusiasm. He was appointed by Gov. Dennison lieutenant-colonel of the Forty second Ohio regiment, but was made colonel as soon as the regi ment was organized. He rose to the rank of brigadier-general, and was made chief of staff of the Army of the Cumberland. At Chicku mauga he rendered distinguished service. This wus the last active war duty he performed. Soon af terwards he was promoted to the rank of major-general of volun teers. In 1803 he resigned his com mission to accept an election to the Thirty-eighth Congress from what is now the uinetecuth Ohio district. He served successively iu every Congress until he was elected to tlie presidency. In 1877 he was a member of the Electoral Commission. Before his nomina tion at Chicago he wus elected to succeed Judge Thurman iu the United States Senate, but on the day that he would have taken his seat iu that body he was inaugu rated President of the United States with the grandest cere mo nies ever known on such an occa sion. Tiie congressional career of the Pxesident is fr esh in the mind of the country. He was one of tlie most prominent figures that has appeared in Washington since the war. After Mr. Blaine went to tlie Senate lie wus the acknowledged leader of the Republican party iu tlie House. It was bis eminent service iu this field us welt us his great popularity in the doubtful State of Oiiio, which caused the anti-Grant factious to unite on him at Chicago. In tiie canvass lie de veloped fine powers of political leadership and created great en thusiasm throughout tlie South and West. Of his administration little need be said, as it has been so brief and its every important fact is so well known. Garfield when 27 years old mar ried Miss Lucretia Rudolph, daugh ter of a Maryland tanner, whom lie had met when both were students Hiram College. lie was a de voted member of the Christian or Camhellite church and frequently appeared as a lay preacher iu its pulpits. One singular incident of his life was that widie spending a vacation iu North PownaJ, Vt., he taught a writing dass iu a school where Chester A. Arthur had been principal a year before. Tjie Presi dent was a man of fine physique and just in the prime of his power. Personally he was very attractive, and was notable for the simplicity his manners, which the honors the White House seem to have left entirely unaffected. a a so ful a a the So life ted ced an to Indianapolis is agitated over the enfrircerujiint of tire Sunday law, the Police Commisstowers having ordered tire saloons to lie closed that day. up me a \ The Sew President. [N. O. Democrat.) As to the birthplace of Chester Allan Arthur, there has been a dis pute, which, during the late cam paign, attained considerable im portance. It is generally conced ed, however, that he was born in Fairfield, Franklin county, Ver mont, October 5,1830. His father, William Arthur, was a Protestant Irishman. In America he became somewhat famous in the ministry of the Baptist Church. Young Arthur had good advan tages in early life. At the age of 18 he graduated at Uniou College and began to teach school. He ceased teaching and spent two years in the study of law at Balls torr Springs. Again he taught school, until in 1851 he had $500, with which he went to New York to practice law, entering the office of Erastus D. Culver, and was soon admitted to a partnership, Iu 1857 he went West, but soon returned to New York and resumed the practice of his profession. His most notable case was the celebra ted Lemmon suit, where he was as sociated with Mr. Evarts, in which tlie validity of the fugitive slave law iu Virginia was destroyed. His only service during the war, outside his profession, was for a brief period on the staff of Gen. Hunt, in the army of the Potomac, as inspector of New Yor k troops in the field. Mr. Arthur's car eer in polities has been very short. He was a member of the Saratoga conven tion that founded tiie Republican party in New York. He has fig urged conspicuously as a local politician in New York city, andin 1871 ho was nominated by Presi dent Grant to be collector of the llort of New York. This valuable position he held until July 12,1878, when he was removed by Presi dent Hayes for alleged use of the oftloo for political purposes. He returned to the praetiee of law as member of the firm of Arthur, Phelps, Knewal Ä Ransom, in New York city. t'hlcago and the Michigan Sufferers. [Chicago Tribune.] The inhabitants of Chicago should be interested in the fact that when a beggarly contribution of $500 for the Michigan tire suf ferers was received at a little town known us Ray City, to be forward ed thence to the afflicted people, meeting of the citizens was at once held and the sum of $2,500 subscribed on the spot. And so it goes out to all the wofld by the tar-reaohing voaceH of the tele graph that Chicago, which received six or seven million dollars in con tributions when similarly afflicted, now gives $500 for the sufferevs, by one of the most appalling visi tations of the age, while Bay City, with a thirtieth or our population, gives five times as much, Some thing has been done to improve the exhibit thus made of Chicago's lib erality, Imt tlie whole business ts tedious and so inefficiently managed that it is siuudy disgrace to the city and to all coifcerued' ——— »» » ■— While iu Chicago recently a cit- izen of Jackson, Mich., was paid trade dollar iu u business trans- action, which afterward, on close examination! he found quite de- fective in weight.

They had a dispute to which was the tatter man, Arthur or Garfield, whidi led to a challenge to fight. They repaired a shed where King struck Ham ilton twice in theheail with an axe, inflicting mortal wounds. With pleading eyes she looked from the piano and sang, "Call your darling again." Rut he refused, as there is wo telling whew rwaw will be introduced to a breach of promise suit in these days.
