HENDRICKS, of Irdi ana, are elected President and Vice President of the United State ! ! This is the Centenniai crow that pur old game rooster, who has been coop ed up for twelve long years, now sings in clarion tones to the farthest confines of old Rapides! We have been waiting for it for many long and weary years, we have been strug gling for it hard and patiently, we have been praying for it fervently, and at last that silver lining illu mines our heretofore dark cloud and we are once more a free and di4en thralled people. We can now shout and join our anthems of joy with our whole people, and glory with the victory of our time-honored old par ty! Hallelujah! and Democracy'i Te Deum to one and all! -WE publish in to-day's Demo crat, a full, complete and official ta ble of the vote of the Parish by Pre cincts, and assure our readers they will find it a most reliable one, cor rect in all particulars, and we advise one and all to preserve it for future reference. -Two good and instructive letters will be found in our columns, this is sue of the Democrat, from our gifted Washington correspondent. ihey will bear reading just now on Ithe heels of the Democratic-Centeninial victory. -In our official table of the Par ish vote we do not include at lhast thirty-five votes, scattering so-called for D. C. Paul. They were not c un ted, and in our table figures we lhave followed accurately the officlal cont. -IF you want to know the re ult of the Presidential election, take a good glance at the young man nd the Government boys around the Post Office. -SALT river is over crowded itb Radical pap suckers and cormorants, the young man will soon cry "di in feet" there. -L. V. MARYE and John P. Gro gan are elected Magistrates for the Alexandria Ward, and E. Vallcry and E. V. Maryc, Constables. OUR HOME ELECTION. The campaign just closed was one of the fiercest in the history of Amer ican politics, and the election just held was the inost hotly contested and has resulted in the closest vote in our parish, in the State, and in the Nation that has fallen under our ob servation. We recall a contest for the Legislature in 1840 between T. J. Wells and C. H. Blanchard in which the vote in this parish was a tie, and was decided by the Parish Judge, but since then there has been no election decided by 90 votes which is Pack ard's majority over Nicholls. W e lay the situation in the State and Nation before our readers elsewhere and propose here only to discuss our home affairs. We had in this parish at least three hundred white voters who were registered, and who after taking that trouble failed to vote, when the fate of the State and almost of the Na tion was trembling in the balance. If these votes had been cast for the party of honesty and reform wc would have carried this parish by two hun dred majority. There were two rea sons for this fall off of the white vote. The first and most important is, that one of our white voting precincts was abolished entirely and another abol ished'and put where we lost nearly one hundred votes. We refer to the Big Island and Paul's Store boxes. There is no doubt but tha:t those two changes lost us more than a hundred votes and that the establishment of the "Burnt Down" poll for their especial benefit gained the Radicals more than a hun dred votes, in a Ward which had reg isterd more fraudulent young ne groes than any other. This manip ulation of the polling places made a difference of at least two hundred against us. Another, and fruitful source of the loss of white votes was the disaffection produced among the hill voters by the Independents, so called who sowed dissensions where all was united and by disparagement of our local ticket, lost to Tilden and Nicholls two hundred votes without gaining any benefit for themselves. Out of a registered white vote of about 1950 there was cast for Nich olls 1639 votes, against a solid negro vote of 1729 for Packard. The hon est, true people of the parish know where the blame lies for their defeat by so insignificant a majority, and they will not fail to visit their dis pleasure upon the heads of those who have aided their enemies directly or indirectly. They have watched close ly the actions of the croakers and of Lice seekers in this the hour of their sore trial and they prefer to form their opinion of the status of tl.eie gentlemen from their actions rather than from their empty professions of loyalty to their cause, while their sympathies and their aid were both given the enemies of the peace and prosperity of the country. A day of reckoning has come, when social re cognition and business profits will be given by the people to their true and Stried friends alone and when are those t who were not ofand with them, heart Sand soul, must look to their new al lies for the comforts of society and Sremuneration pecuniarily. The fight was too fierce, the contest too close, 0 for the people to tolerate those who , imperilled their success and assisted in the triumph of their enemies. We have learned another lesson from the campaign just closed which nothing but an actual trial and fail Sure would have made us believe. r And that lesson is that all our pled Sges and promises, all our guarantees of protection and peace, and all our appeals to the reason of the negro were made in vain and that the base lies of the designing carpet baggers Sand corrupt negro leaders were eager ly swallowed by them and were ef fectual in uniting them against us. Tliey stamped a blue cross with a ring around it on their ticket and told the negroes that it was "God's eTicket." The horrible blasphemy was not condemned by their preach ers and numbers of them have been s heard since to boast that they voted - "God's" and "Christ's" ticket. They I told them if the Democrats won, the y negroes would be put down and pad e dled as they used to be in slavery I times and they were fools enough to beleive the lie notwithstanding our aisertions that all their rights would be protected. Appeals to the pas sions and fears of the negro may be made the means of moving him, as the radical leaders have demonstra e ted, but arguments addressed to his reason and dependent upon his faith Sin the words of the white people are Sfruitless and fall upon barren ground. dThis does not, of course, refer to the Snoble and brave colored men who vo ted with us in spite~ofradlcal lies and negro intimidation. They deserve aid, protection and especial care at our hands and it will be readily given them. The frauds and irregularities in the election will set aside the small majority against us, and legal contests will be made in nearly every case which before honesi tribunals -and impartial juries will give the t fices to our apparently deated candi- T dates, and if their opponents think that the fight is over, they are much mistaken. Suits and notices of con test will disturb the equanimity of I the radical candidates somewhat this week, and ere long they will vacate I their fraudulently got and undeserved offices. We say to our friends be of good cheer, the victory will yet be ours! An Election Item. The allowing of the negroes at Alexandria and Pineville to vote, when their names were not on the poll books, took away from us the only check we had upon fraudulent voting on double registration papers. We reiterate our conviction that not ten negroes in the parish had lost their old papers, yet over six hun dred of them got new ones. There were over 600 negro votes cast at the two Alexandria boxes, and we pro pose to show how every one of them whose names were not on the books, could have and doubtless did, vote on both papers. Let us suppose that John Smith, a negro voter, presents himself at Poll No. 1 with his old paper, and neither his name or num ber are found on the poll book, but still he is allowed to vote. He then goes to Poll No. 2 with his new cer tificate and no matter whether his name is on that poll book or not, he is allowed to vote a second time. He has now cast two radical votes, and if he has in his pockets the certifl cates of four or five dead negroes or of those who have removed from the parish, he can go at different times to the same poll or change about and vote all of them also. There was ab solutely no check at the time to pre vent this fraud and the only way to discover the fraud now, would be to compare the two lists of voters and find the double names. This even s would be without result, as the com missioners did not keep the numbers of the certificates and the fact that two of the same names had voted would prove nothing without the numbers also. Protests by the U. S. Supervisors were entered at the time but overruled by the Commis sioners under instructions from the Radical Supervisor, and if these two ° boxes are thrown out for fraud, the radicals have only themselves to blame. ' --.-. Intimidation. o The Radicals have for years been r talking about intimidation of Repub lican voters and making a big to do about it. We have clear proof of a r number of cases where colored Dem o ocrats would have voted our ticket e but were intimidated by colored r Radicals before the election and have f been threatened :ince from the same r source. The Radical negroes and Sleaders may as well understand right I now that that is a dangerous game f for them to try to play in this Par ish. Every white man is the friend e and protector of every colored man d who voted the Democratic ticket and e if they harm A hair of their heads a tswift and certain punishment will - follow the act. The negroes may as d well understand another thing-that It they have the right to live here and , if they choose, to vote the Radical o ticket, but they cannot rule this d country nor can they impose on ei ther the white people or their color n ed friends. The negro who on Sat h urday packed a shot gun to Town - and on the road tried to raise a row -with a colored Democrat is courting 1- a disastrous termination to his brag s adocio and the others who are at r tempting to take possession of the ' country will find themselves faced e with difficulties that it may be un 5 pleasant for them to meet. The r- white men own this country-it is - their heritage and they do not pro i. pose to give it up to Radical negroes a .nor to allow them to intimidate, d harm or molest any of the brave and a sensible colored men who voted with y them to secure peace and order in - the country. We give this warning n in time and if some negroes we know d don't heed it they will find that in y timidation is a game that two can e play at. -W. J. CALVIT, J. A. Calhoun, G. SW. Bolton, Thos.

WASHINGTON CORRESPONDENCE. s WASHIN'GTON, t Oct. 30, 1876.1 @ EDITOR DEMOCRAT- k When I closed my last, I then ex- r pected to leave at once for the Cen- j tennial, but meeting with a near rel- r ative, I concluded tosvisit for a day, at least, my native land, and in four hours after my determination, I was in the very house that gave me birth, upon the theatre of my juvenile i amusements, and amid them, who i were even willing to rejoice, when I t rejoiced, and to weep with me when I sympathy demanded a tear. This morning as I stood holding my son by the hand, by the side of the grave of my sainted mother, he asked me what other grave was that, which "was so well fixed up" (I use his language) "that is" I replied "the grave of my black Mammy." You cannot imagine what mingled feeling passed through heart and brain. Way off in Louisiana, perhaps at that very moment, when the Virginian stood dropping one tear over the grave of her who gave him birth, and another over the last resting place of his black mammy, who had nursed and cared for him in the days of helplessness and innocence-for Ire peat, at that very moment, sob weet, so hallowed to him, some accursed carpet bagger, was then pouring into the ear of the child of my black mammy, whom I left 'behind-the most most monstrous of lies-lies, that would blister the lips of the devil himself, in order by this ladder of infamy, he could climb into some petty office. I told the people of Washington-I told my Virginia friends, and I will tell it to vast crowds before the election in Penn sylvania and New York that the first, last and only curse of the South, is I the dirty, stinking, lying and thiev ing carpet-bagger. Relieve us of him - and the whole South within less than Sa decade, will blossom like the rose. t On my return to Washington, a party i of us concluded to "do" Mt. Vernon 0 at once before leaving the City. So on the beautiful little boat City of B Washington, we started passing the - ancient town of Alexandria-that e spot where Washington so often vis D ited and which he loved so well. e Here is the church where he wor e shipped, and Pew No. 11 is pointed out to the visitor as the one occupied by the Father of his Country, at a cost of £30 a year ($150.) It was in at this place that Jackson, the first martyr of the South, displayed the first Confederate flag raised on 17th of April, 1861. Col. Ellsworth in attempting to haul it dawn was t killed, and Jackson lost his life, for what he honestly beleived, duty and e patriotism. The house which was e the old Marshall House, was busned a few years ago, leaving only its t walls, but it has been recently re e built, and the Hotel has been re placed by two splendid stores. Few cities of the Union have more Revo lutionary reminiscenses than this Sgood old town. It was here La Fa a yette had his headquarters; the house I being now occupied by a stone dealer. Just above this is an old brick house It which was used as a hospital. I was d pointed to a house, just across the I street from the Mannon House where Washington presided at a Masonic Banquet. Leaving this ancient town around which hover so many scenes connected with Washington and the Revolution, we continue our route to Mt. Vernon. Having passed above Alexandria, the U. S. Arsenal with Sits beautiful grounds, and great piles of ordinance, where the judicial murder was committed by Andrew d Jehnson, in the hanging of Mrs. Sur ratt, for being a supposed accessory, to the murder of Abraham Lincoln. We come to the St. Elizabeth Insane Asylum, which belongs to the Gene ral Government. From this point far off to the North, can be seen d Georgetown, and the large brick b structure so prominent near that Stown, is Georgetown College. Just over the North East end of the Penn R. R. Bridge, Arlington Mansion, the Shome of our belbved Robt. E. Lee, n looms up in melancholy grandeur. This Pennsylvania R. R. Bridge is Uhe connecting link of Rail Roads :. between North and South. After . leaving Alexandria, the first notices e ble point, is Battery Rogers on a Light bluff, erected during the late "unpleasantness." The next is Fort Foot, an earth-work erected in 1863. e The next is Fort Washington on the Mn aryland shore, an extensive fortifi cation, designed by Washington, and Scompletely commanding the Potomac Sriver. This is the most curious, as i well as the most impregnable For tress on the American Continent. Looking back from this point, the 7 beautiful and magnificent Capitol ri d sing in the distance, seems "to shoot its spire in the thunder's home." d Turning a sharp point Mt. Vernon is seen at a distance of four miles. Arriving at the American Mecca, we )r were put in charge of a genial gentle man Col. J. McEnry Hollingswortb, whoacted as our Asmodeus during is our brif stay of four hours. Lead ing us up a pebbly path towards the summit of the Mount, we passed el three weeping willows, taken from C the grave of Napoleon whilst that C great soldier, slept the sleep that knows no waking" amid the Niobe tl rocks of the island of St. Helena. r Just above these willows, we ap- t proached the tomb of Washington. ii The simple inscription: d Within this Enclosure V Rests The Remains of General George Washington e is found over the gate. To the right C is found the sarcophagus which con- 1 tains his remains. It is surmounted by a handsome shield of the United I States. Below the shield is d Washington. t On the post By permission of t Lawrence Lewis The remaining Executor of George Washington This Sarcophagus Was presented by John Struthers, A. D. 1837. On the left side of the vault, is the other sarcophagus, which is of the same material, though perfectly t plain. Martha Consort of Washington I on the foot is inscribed Died May 21, 1801, Aged 71 years. Through the grating-for you have to read through :iron bars, the key to open them having long since been thrown into the Potomac-on a mar ble slab, over the door of the vault, the visitor reads the 25th and 26th verses of the Book of St. John: "I am the resurrection and the life, and whosoever believeth in Me shall r not die." a On either side of the front of the f t&mb, stand two tall monuments en I 0 closed by iron railings. Turning to t the right with your back to the - tomb, is the monument of John Au ,, gustine Washington, the other mon s ument to the left is that of Bushrod Washington and his wife. Just to a the right of the vault are the hand n some monuments erected to the . memory of Mrs. Charles M. Conrad, y grand niece of General Washington, n who died at Pass Christian Septem o ber 21, 1839, and that of Mrs. Elea ,f nor Park Lewis, niece of General e Washington, and mother of Mrs. .t Conrad, who died in 1852. Leaving ;- this sacred spot we approach the 1. Mansion, a description of which I r- will give you in my next. d AU REVOIR. a WASHINGTON, 5 Nov. 5, 1876.1 e EDITOR DEIMOCRAT d I cannot leave Mt. Vernon without ' giving you a few more detcils con 1i cerning it, particulaily, as my letter 5 will reach you after the election, in r all probability, when it will be a sort d of doceur to irritated and lacerated Is feelings. Leaving the Mansion at d the rear or West door, the beautiful ' lawn containing about 20 acres, and e- garden are brought in view. The e- flower garden is to the right of the w lawn, and contains a green house )- which were burned down some years is ago, but which have been rebuilt by i- the Government, at a cost of $7,000. ie Just before we enter the flower gar r. den gate, we find four beautiful trees e planted by Washington, two are ash, 5 and two are poplar. These poplars e resemble very much our cotton-wood e trees of Louisiana, and I suppose be c long to the same family. Entering n the flower garden, we find the beds 5 all bordered by boxan evergreen, e over 100 years old, planted there by O the old pair. The only thing re re maining in the green house, that be h longed to Washington, is the stalk of it the sage palm, now 130 years old. al Just Inside the garden gate, are four V calaoanthus bushes, presented by r- Jeflerson to Washington and named V, by him, after his four friends, Madi a. son, Monroe, Adams, Jefferson. 1e There are two trees of much inter e- est to the pilgrims to the tombs, be 't tween the garden and the Mansion, m Magnolia Grandflora and the Ken k tucky coffee tree. Owing to the vigor t of the climate you would hardly re st cognize the Mnagnolia, as a member in of that grand Magnolia, which along ie all of our rivers'and bayous of the e, South "moves its branch of endless r. green." Thus I have, in a rapid, is concise and rambling manner given s you a general view of Mt. Vernon sr and its enriroflts. a Washington was not born here, as a many suppose, but in the County ef te Westmoreland, Virginia. The house rt in which he was born was burned, 3 and his father removed, while the e hero was yet a boy to "Rappahan - nock Farm" near Fredericksburg, ad and which he left to Washington in iC his will. Thb:late George Washing is ton Park Curtis had erected in 1815, Sa piece of free stone on which was - engraved: Ce Here ri- On the 11th of Feb. 1732 ot George Washington was born The record of his birth, in the is hand writing of his father, as found * fn the family ]4ible, is as follows: e "George Washington, son of Au Sgustine and Mary his wife, was born ey 11th day of February 1732, about S11 in the morning, and was baptized be the 3d of April following. IMr. Ber arly Whiting and Christoper Brooks, i God Fathers, and Mrs. Mildred Gregory, God Mother." You and your readers will think that there is here an apparent anach ronism, but if you will remember, that it was twenty years after Wash ington's birth, the Gregorian Calen dar was adopted, the inconsistency will be at once explained. The 22d of February was first cel ebrated in Alexandria, Virginia, at Codsbey's Tavern in 1778 in which Washington participated. The Mt. Vernon Estate (200 acres) now belongs to the "Mt. Vernon La dies Association of the Union." On the 17th of March 1856 the General Assembly of Virginia granted a char ter to Mrs. Cunningham, and other devoted women, under the above title giving them power to purchase and hold the Mt. Vernon Estate fbrever; but preventing them from selling, or otherwise disposing of the property, without the consent of the Legisla ture. The ladies paid the purchase money, $200,000, to J. A. Washing ton, by small contributions but most ly through Edward Everett's lectures which amounted to nearly $100,000. The officers of the Association are a Regent, Vice Regent, Secretary, Treasury and Superintendent, and they meet once a year in the Council Chamber already described for de liberation. Then it will be seen that Mt. Ver non to-day, is dedicated by the lov ing care of women, to the memory of him, who loved it so well, but who was ever ready at the call of duty, to sacrifice were it necessary, even life itself for duty. And is not the na tion willing to leave it in the hands of their countrywomenP For one I speak for the South, emphatically, YEs. And now the Pilgrim's mis sion is ended. Go, go, proud Ameri can to that humble Tomb and gaze upon the last resting place of George Washington, and your soul will be filled with an awful sublimity, for that humble tomb is not awakened by the kiss of the sunbeam, like that of the tabled Memmon statute, to speak his praise, yet, you have but to turn your gaze to your country, and "you read h:s history in a na tion's eyes." Rest there! Great Patriot! in the keeping of those within the still deep chambers of whose hearts lie, the pa. triotism and religious faith of the world. Women's tears will keep green the turf around thy sainted urn, and the same gentle hand that received donations, to secure thy last resting place for a nation of free men, and decorates the social temple with the Corinthian graces of pol ished life, will twine les inmfArtelles an amaranthine wreath, around the Patriot's Tomb.

NOT A FAIa DEAL.--There ar causes sufficient to invalidate' th election in this parish, and we do Spropose to submit to a result achie Sed as was the radical victory here b r ninety votes. If Hayes and Pac ard had been elected we would hay Shave been without a remedy, bt with Tilden as President and Nich ols for Governor, and the assurance of fair play thus given us, we do no Spropose to give it up so. Th S'Burnt Down" poll which gave. tw hundred majority against us can ~ thrown out on good and suffiien ,grounds which will be developed a - the proper time. The negro riot an& e tumult at the two Alexandria box] t and consequent intimidation of col ored Democratic voters, will thro~ out a majority of over three hundre& a against us. Many of our white voter~ Swere not permitted to vote because their names were not on the poll ebooks and at the two negro polls in Alexandria, negroes were allowed to vote whose names were not on th poll books. This worked both ways e against us, and more than madeup I for their small majority in the whole parish., It will be ascertained Jus g how many white voters were dis e franchised by the poll books furnish f ed by Woodruff, our Registrar, and* f how many negroes were allowed to> *vote, who by the same rule should> also have been disfranchised. We( did not have a fair deal and before aanother tribunal we will seek t Y justice and fair play which was de-. d nied us at the ballot box under radi~ k cal manipulation. -A negro riot n Alexandrl election day was the result of our . forbearance and earnest desire for e peaceable election. -How do 'ou do President Tilden ? re crN-- c~ru " --BY the results ot the late ele,. c- tion we gain a Democratic U.
