SArrival of General Sherman.
Lieutenant-General Sherman, accom
panied by his daughter and Col. Day
ton and lady, arrived on Sunday
morning last on the steamer Lotawan
na and took lodgings at the Ice House
Hotel. We had the pleasure of meet
ing him at the hotel where many of his
old friends called on him and talked
over the scenes of former times. On
Monday the General visited the State
Seminary of which he was the first
Superintendent. He took a view of
the grounds and buildings and inspect
ed the class rooms as in old times
when he was on duty as its presiding
officer. We understand that the Gen
eral expressed himself highly gratified
at the flourishing condition of the In
stitution, so ably managed by his old
friend and colleague. "
We are pleased to observe that Gen.
Sherman is in much better health than
we expected to find him. He shows
signs of having been handled by father
Time during the last eight years as
unsparingly as the rest of us. We
hope his visit to Rapides has been a
pleasant one. He goes down on the
Stonewall to-day.
Departure of Judge Ryan.
Hon. Micheal Ryan, representative
in Congress elect from the Fourth' Dis
triet, leaves to-day on the "Stonewall"
to present himself for admission to the
floor of the House of Representatives
at the commencement of the iession on
the 4th of March next. We shall, there
fore, soon know whether our members
are to be admitted, on whether the
Radicals will repeat the outrages which
have disgraced their legislation during
the present Congress. Of course, they
will not pretend to admit the Radical
contestants, and it would be useless to
send back the election, for our mem
bers would be returned by double their
former majorities. In either event our
members will not be excluded without I
a hearing and if Judge Ryan is permit
ted to present his own case, he will
give the Radicals some valuable in
formation in regard to Louisiana mat
ters which we hope will not be lost
upon tlheni'
As the first session of Congress will
be a short one, Judge Ryan will return
in.time to attend the May term of our
District Court. In his absence his pro
fessional and private business will be I
in charge of James G. White Esq. t
S i" We call attention to the adver- I
tisement of the Carolina Life Insuanrce o
Company of Memphis, Tennessee. ii
This sterling home company comes e
among us recommended by the best ii
merchants of New Orleans; men known a
to as for their Integrity and business ii
qualifications. Their names are suffi- p
cient guarantees for its solvency. Sev- ii
eral of our citizens have availed them- ti
selves of. its liberal advantages by se- S
earing at least a competency for their si
families in the event of death. to
The Company is fortunate in secur- C
ing the services of Dr. IH. St. John as is
local agent at Alexandria, and William IH
S. Maddox, as Solicitor for Rapides, a,
Avoyelles, Natchitoches and Sabine. g,
We hope our people, contemplating in- C,
earing, will see Dr. St. John or Mr. bi
Maddox before perfecting arrangements rc
elsewhere. si

SWe are pained to learn of the n'
death of Professor James Mi. Bpyd, of ie
the State Seminary, on the morning of de
the 15th inst. Professor Boyd was a bt
native of Virginia and was in the thirty- en
first year of his age. At an early age ti
he was graduated with distincth n at u
Washington College and sulbsequcenatly o
at the University of Virginia. During the
the session of 1866-67 he was Professor col
of Natural Philosophy at the State ,o
Seminary and the following session As- ne
sistant Professor of Ancient Languages Ihi
at the University of Virginia. Within
the last few monthls he resumed his hai
chair at the Seminary, but a fatal dis- an
ease, to whicdh hie had been subject for wa
some time paet, has suddenly cut short of
his useful and promising career. Pro- ma
fessor Boyd had few superiors of his Sta
age in variety and lepth of learning, wa
particularly in the department of exact ear
science, and his high character as a ua
gentleman won for him the respect and can
confidence of a large circle of friends.- he
He was a near relative of Col. D. F. ner

nary, and his wife, to whom he was mn
but recently married, is a niece of out guv

. The Sherman-Johnston Plan of
Many have been the regrets, amid
the political troubles of the last four
869. years, that the reasonable and equita
ble plan of settlement proposed by
Gen. Sherman and General Johnston
in North Carolina, had not been adopt
ed immediately by the authorities at
Washington. Gen. Sherman had made
the most remarkable and successful
expedition of the war, had demonstra
ted the weakness and utter exhaustion
of the Confederacy, and left no room
for doubt in the mind of any one that
the end of the war was near at hand.
Still, Gen. Johnston had a formidable
army and was in that desperate condi
om- tion when a fight was necessary if
pay- pushed to the wall. If Gen. Sherman
day had been ambitious of ending his ca
ran- reer by a bloody victory, he had an
mee abundant opportunity for the gratifica
eet- tion of his desires. But he saw clearly
his that the further effusion of blood was
ked unnecessary, and believed that an am
On icable settlement of the difficulties
Late could be made at a time when some
first kind of a settlement was an imperative
of necessity. Happily Gen. Johnston was
ect- actuated by the same impulses. And
mes if Gen. Breckinridge was consulted, as
ing President Johnson afterwards charged,
ren- it redounds to his credit that be, too,
gave his advice in the interest of ha
In- anity and the welfare of both see
old tions. These two great commanders,
therefore, set to work on a plan of set
tlement and in a short time produced
lan one that was as far superior to all sub
DWI sequent plans as they themselves are
her superior in intellect to the,jack-leg
as politicians who have bought them into
We existence. If the plan had been adopt
a ed, the war would have ended with the
the surrender of the Confederate armies,
and the Federal government would
have been as much praised for its gen
erosity and humanity, as it has been
ive denounced for its vindictiveness and
)is tyrannical spirit. The State govern
ments would have been recognized as
the the only legitimate governments, form- I
ed as they were by the people, and the
on State officers, after having taken the
oath of allegiance, would have proved I
as "loyal" as those subsequently el
the ected under the Johnson regime, and 1
ich certainly as efficient as the carpet-bag I
ng governments which are a disgrace to I
leg the age in Which we live.
cal But Mr. Johnson, for fear that he I
to might not be deemed as truly loyal as
m- Sir. Lincoln, refused to ratify the plan I
eir agreed on. The plan having fallen
or through, the Confederates were com
nt pelled to surrender unconditionally
it- and without obtaining any guarantees
rill of safety for their political rights. The
in- question of settlement of the rights of
t- the States was, therefore, reserved, and
st how it has been trifled with, the dis- t
graceful legislation of the past four 8
ll years abundantly shows. Without t
in authority from, the Constitution Mr.
nr Johnson abrogated the State govern
ments and set on foot a plan to restore
them which, whether it originated with
himself, or Mr. Lincoln, or Mr. Stan
ton, was as absurd as it was illegal.- P
r- It gave to the Radicals their first idea
ce of the '- suicide of the States," and this a
e. idea being recognized by both the Ex
es ecutive and Legislative Departments, a
at it is natural that, when a difficulty
rn arose between them, the one superior "
as in strength should have insisted on a
I- plan of its own, and one more in the g
r- interest of the party which controlled h,
- the legislation of tihe country. If the a
a- States had committed suicide then why L
ir should a President have more' power di
to create governments for them, than o
r- Congress with whom rests all the leg- t
is islative power under the government.
n flow this assumed power Ihas been i
a, aubsed let the present condition ot the ti
. South answer. Of course the Radical a
I- Congress is mainly responsible for it, bh
r. but Mr. Johnson, from whom they bor- In
" rowed the idea, must share tihe respon
sibility with them. at
The reasons assigned by thie enemies h
, of the Sherman-Johnston plan for its
, abrogation were as puerile as could m
Ie well be imagined. Mr. Johnson gave o
Sno other reason than that it originated an
w. with Gen. Breckinridge whom lie had lih
t supported so enthusiastically for the ln
SPresidency of the United States. Some t
- of the IRladicals charged that it was in
. tended to reestablish slavery. Noth- II
ing could have been maore absurb.
Gen. Sherman had no desire to rees
e tablish slavery, and Gen. Johnston, if
1I le desired it, know that it could not be P
1 done. Probably the negro was never on
thoulght of by either. They were both lit
- endeavoring to estnlishl such a condi- be
*tion of things as would enable white an
t sIaen to live under and control the State do
.governments as they had done from by
;the moment of the settlement of the c
r country. But the dominant party lhad a
gone mad, and Gen. Sherman's emi- joi
neat services to his country could not in.
•shield him from its attacks. on
Gen. Sherman's only sulperior officer c
has been promoted to the Presidency,
and ie himself, who, eiglht years ago r
was an efficient and respected istructor of
of youth in our parish, is now the com- r
mander of the Army of tihe United nma
States. We know whlat he can do in lng
war; and, taking the North Carolina do
conference as a specinen of his diplo- et
macy, we can well imagine what he oth
can do as a civil officer. If, therefore,
he possesses that influence with the
new President which he ought to have, dy
it camnot fail to have a beheticial effect ing
',n the future administration of the tigh
govetnuent. shir

ties the "Home Institution" was conducted.
,me The Louisiana Lottery company, you

aas our Legislature at their last session, an
tnd act which kicked up quite a dust in our
as public journals at the time, and has since,

ec- panies have got at logger-heads, are pulling
as, each others hair and making the fur flly in
st- all directions. The office of the Louisiana
fed company is in the building built and for
lb- merly occupied by the Bank of New Or

leg streets, and the drawing takes place duly
uto at four o'clock p. m., is the story over the
pt- banking room, When I entered there
the were about two hundred persons present,
ies, some who had come out of mere curiosity,
ald and others with the hope of hearing their
an- numbers called first, and a fortune follow
aen ing. At the end of the room, next to St.
LCd Charles street, there is a platform on which
rn- is placed the wheel enclosed in a glass
as case. A boy blindfolded, and a man stood
m- near the wheel, and the commissioners sat
bhe in front ready to record the numbers as
the diawn. The numbers were put in little
'ed tubes and deposited in the wheel, which
el- was then given three or four brisk turns,
nd mixing the numbers up as thoroughly as
ag the most experienced cardplayer could mix
to his cards by shuffling. The wheel was then
stopped, the blindfolded boy put in his
he hand, and drew out a number which he
as handed to the mann asr him. The man I
an held it up, turned to the audience, opened I
en and exhibited .it, the figures being largell
U. and plain enough to be seen all over theI
ly room. As soon as it was recorded the
et whee! was set in motion again, the boy
he drew another numhor, which was handed
of over and exhibited as before, and so the
ad ,erformance was continued until the t
is. twelve numbers were drawn. There are
nr seventy-eight of these numbers put into i
at the wheel, and some days twelve, and on
Er. others thirteen are drawn out, those drawn I
M. being the ones that determine the prizes.- i
re After the drawing everybody seemed satis- i
th fled, and "retired in good order." While
a- I was on that track I thought I would 1
post myself in relation to the .
and so I called on O. E. Hall, Esq., at the a
St. Charles Hotel, presented my Democrat, t
and was cordially received. Mr. Hall said t
he had many' friends on Old Red, and t
would with pleasure give me all the infor.
)r mation he could. Mr. Hall is one of our
a meot esteened citizens, a man of large
le generosity, sociable and courteous, and j
d has been for many years a prominent man
le as proprietor of the St. Charles and St
iy Louis Hotels. He informed me that the

Sof July, as the tickets, which are sohl at a
ten dollars each, are going off very rapid. 0

counltry and fromn distant esties for tickets U

LI a million of dollars, and is now open doing a

The forenoon passed without much dis
play, a few children in mask and negro or
two, created some sport uas they passed h
along. After that tisme the streets began TI
to 11fill up, the maskes came out strong int
numbers and the fun ran high. Here come,
Humpty Dampty in his little wagon drawn
by a male, not much larger than a New pl
