No one is qiprised at this, however, because they are a very hard party, indeed. -Bnsa is the Radical Southern idea condensed-it was "revolution" for the Confederates to leave the Capital, and is "revolution" for them to come back. -Taz Surveyor of the Port of New Orleans was in Town on Satur day, looking exceedingly fine and dressed in the best style of aristo cratic fashion. -Do you want a genuine Wheeler and Wilson Sewing Machine? You must call on T. Moore Biossat, who is the only authorized agent for Ba pides Parish. Beware of counter feits and imitations. --Oua Radicals here are going stone blind, they are so mad at the loss of power. They are really fran tie that the "old falg" is still there, and that appropriations and offices to satiate them are "out of order." -M-s.

Since .the first of January, when the Democracy be gan to "unsettle the business inter ests of the country," refunding has made such a progress as to result in an annual saving of $7,000,000 in re duction of interest.

What judicial system the Conven tion will adopt is very uncertain, if we are to judge .from the great con trariety of opinions expressed on the subject by our exchanges. Evidently this is one of the most important prob:ems to be handled by the Con vention, the solution of which will require great care and deliberation. That reforms are needed in this co ordinate branch of the government, is admitted by all, but the method to be pursued is not free from difficul ties. In discussing the question with some of our ablest attorneys, we have come to the conclusion that the system proposed in the late Con stitutional Amendments of 1878, presents many commendable feat urea, and we doubt if the Conven tion will be able to improve much on them. What we desire is an able, efficient and independent Judiciary, with a tenure of office, and salary sufficient to make the position ac ceptable to our best and ablest law yers. The term of office should not be less than ten years, and the salary sufficient to give the judge a decent living with something to retire on. t Judges, by all means, should be elected, and we doubt very much if the people would ever be willing to surrender the right so long exercised, of electing those who shall adminis ter their laws. The District system is, in the opinion of most of our lawyers and people, the best adapted to our wants. _The Districts should not be so large that the Judge can not conveniently hold four terms of the court for the ? transaction of all business, civil and criminal, in each Parish of his Dis g trict during the year. The Judge should be a practitioner of law, of at d least seven or eight years standing, and of course should reside in his District at least four years before he g is eligible. The District Judges should be grouped into Circuit , Courts, with appellate jurisdictibn in all sums exceeding one hundred and not exceeding two thousand dsl lars. They should hold their ses sions three times a year, in their cir Sculit, at such time and place as may be provided by law. An appeal should lie direct from the Circuit Courts to the Supreme Court, on questions of law only, when the amount in dispute exceeds five hun dred dollars. The Supreme Court should remain as now constituted, a with appellate jurisdiction direct ' from the District Court, in all sums e that exceed fifteen hundred dollars, a and such criminal jurisdiction as the legislature may confer. ' The Supreme Court should be ap 'f pointed for life or during good beha r vior. This would undoubtedly be d .the most economical method that ' could be advised, and at the same time insure speedy decisions of all r litigations. The delay now in the Sdispatch of business is not in the o District or Parish Courts. Appeals are made returnable only once ayear, rand we are informed that the present Supreme Court is two years behind with their business from New Or. leans. With the adoption of the plan indicated, all cases could be tried in the court of original juriediction and be reversed by the appellate courts in less than six months. The only objection that has been orged to the District system is, that the clerk, who is not learned in the d law, will be invested with certain judicial powers which are liable to aabuse. This need not be. The writ d of injunction, of all the conservatory writs, is the one most complained of, but this the Judge can grant. Only such powers could be conferred on the Clerk, as would not he subject to Sabuse, in other words the law leaves .anything to the discretion of the , Judge, in granting writs or orders, Sfixing bonds or dissolving the same, let the Judge alone be authorized to s perform the duty. This system will - give nine months labor to the judges lduring the year, and will secure a e irompt dispatch of all kinds of cases. -Another important feature is, that in several Parishes of the State there are no lawyers, and if the Parish . Judge system was adopted, material .would have to be imported to fill the , positions. By having Districts a lar Sger field will be given to the people t for selection, and secure better SJudges. The Court cost as they now are, lis almost tantamount to the denial I of jaustice. To reduce these within -reasonable bounds, let the Clerk and -Recorder's office be combined, and' Salso the Sheriff be made Tax Colleo-. I tor. The few bills can then be greatly modified, and the Parishes and litigants be saved an exhorbi I taut taxr. Cheaper litigation by all I means, but this can not be.aecom. ,plished by a Judge for each PiriSh. To insure good Judges-have fewer of them and pay them well. -A. A. HAMas, M. D, State As sayer of Massachusetts, pronounces Hall's Sicilian BHair Renewer an ef8. leient preparation f& .leanslng the skin of the head, promoting the growth, and restoring the original color of the hair when it has be. come gray. ELECTIONS TOO FREQUENT. It is very evident to any observer of public sentiment, in our midst, that there is a universal wish that the Constitutional Convention should make the tenure of office longer and prevent too frequent elections. The cost in actual money to the State and Parishes is very great to hold an election; besides, it disturbs our la bor, diverts the time and attention of an impoverished people at the ex pense of recuperating their fortunes and providing for the means of sub sistence. It produces unpleasant feuds and personal bickerings in so ciety, that would be much more pleasant without them. It makes capital timid, for at the present, rev olution of some kind is expected to follow every election. In fact, it dis organizes the usual routine of busi ness, by a strict attention to which, a people grow rich and prosperous. It makes those who temporarily hold the offices unsteady, and often at the sacrifice of duty drives them to court popular clamor, in order to be re elected. To have capable, honest and efficient officers we must fix the tenure sufficiently long to allow them to become thoroughly acquainted with their duties, and put them f above want. This particularly ap plies to the judiciary. Ten years at least a Judge should hold office, with a sufficient salary to support him de cently in the position, and some thing to rbtire on. We hope the Convention will not go to the ex treme of parsimony in this particu lar, as is suggested by some, who do not know what it costs a good law yer to obtain his education and pre pare himself for this position of trust and honor. England has, perhaps, the most ef t cient public service of any civilized nation. The tenure of office is, in most instances, during life or good behavior, and liberally compensated. Such a long time would not, per haps, suit our system of government, but all intelligent men are convinced that our elections are too frequent for the country's good. We protest against any general election this year, and give it as our deliberate opinion that we will be taking a risk that is unwarranted by any necesai t ty for it. The election for Delegates exhibited an apathy on the part of z the people, tired of elections, and we court defeat and disorganization of t the Democratic party in the State, by having a general election this t year. Let well enough alone. Our offices are well filled, the law is well administered, the people satisfied, with the exception of a few mal.con tents that are always ,emplaining, and will complain, unless they get into position. Let the Nicholls gov e ernment stand, with reduced salaries ,t to its officers, if you will, until the general election in 1880. The Con Svention will do an act of palpable in Sjustice to interfere with the present officials, and violate the good faith = of the party, which may destroy the prevailing harmony in our ranks, and t may be the cause of defeat in the fu ' tnre. This is the sentiment of the Democracy of Rapides, as expreesed o in resolutions in the Parish Conven. It ion, and by no means must we vioi late it. DeconATIoN DaY.-Thie day was , duly celebrated in New Orleans, and Sthe Confederate Monument was very e tastefully ariranged with floral o'er · ings. Coloniei York A.

Our old friend, General Dick Tay- r lor has written a book, titled as our r caption, and the Washington Post i thus notices it: t It is an entertaining work of near- t ly 300 pages, mainly devoted to the relation of Mr. Taylor's personal ex periences of the late war, in which he, as Lieutenant General in the Con federate Army, bore a conspicuous i part. Gen. Taylor holds that the war was the inevitable result of cau ses that existed as long ago as the Colonial era. He traces the history of slavery from its inception to its death, and claims that the institu- I tion was not the cause of the war.- Conflicting interests, an immense im migration, vastly in excess of our capacity to assimilate, he thinks had much to do with producing the state of feeling that resulted in the armed conflict. Gen. Taylor's recollections of scenes and incidents during the !ong struggle, are attractively rela ted, and his work is a valuable addi tion to the literature of a period that will always be regarded with pecu liar interest. The Convention - Its President. The names of several distingnished persons have been mentioned as probable candidates for the Presi dency of the Constitutional Conven tion. We have no opposition to of fer to such men as Andrew S. Her ron and others, for they are true pa triots and well wor thy of the posi tion. In the last few weeks, how ever, since- an expression of Lient. Governor Wiltz, at the Fair Grounds, in reference to the true interests of Louisiana and the reduction of taxa tion, the people of this section of the State, hold this bold, young and accomplished leader in high estima tion. To make him President of the coming Constitutional Convention, would give an earnest to the people of this State, that the Convention in tends to carry out those views of re form for which they were elected. Born in, the State, belonging to no ring, with the people as against rings and exacting bondholders, with par liamentary rules at his finger's ends, no wiser, better or more fitting se lection for President could be made than Lieut. Governor Wilts. He is the choice of Rapides. FIGrT THE GOOD FIaGH.-Onward! New Orleans Democrat, in your fight for the people against bondholders and monted rings. Everywhere in the country, your consistent course 'is approved and applauded, mid it r the sentiments of this people are respected, you will not be crushed out of existence as is expected and threatened. Standing by the rights, libe, ties and interests of Lhe people of the State, the Democratic Couven tion would be recreant to the wishes s of the people of the couutry if you were not rewarded with the public prluting o! the Ciiveution, agaiiist -all ,Conservative" organs, that Sspread Iheir sails to catch all breezes.

First and foremost, we jot our si- 2 ren voice of devout praise for the really, fine and much needed rain with which we were visited, on Eas- I ter-day, and freely acknowledge that there was millions in it for the crops, vegetables, grasses and stock of the i Parish. t The river has not;as yet, been ef fected by the big rain, and, as we + w. ite, is really a dead low stream, within two sect of the lowest of wa- i ter in these parts. The past week, a beautiful, temrn- 1 perite one, barring a little too much wind and dust, has been a poor one in the bubiness line, but has emphat ically been "religious week" in Alex andria. Our devout tellow-citizens, according to the creed and tenets of their various "ideas on religion" have made it one of commemoration, and it has been devoutly observed as a such. With the Catholics it has I been "Passion Week," and all thel august and impressive ceremonies of the Church were observed both in St. Francis arvier Church and the Chapel in Pineville. In St. James Church, the house of worship of the Episcopalians, the whole week was fittingly observed and commemorated "as per formula of the Church," and tJie whole imposing ceremonies ter minated, on Easter, with three ser vices,0devoted to the tenets and prac tices of the Church. "'The Metho dist Church, both in hieville and Town, also had their services and sermons, "according to the text of the good book," and we are glad to note that all three of these "religious denominations" were graced with 1 large and attentive audiences. ' With our Hebrew fellow-citizens it has been the week of tie "Pass. over," and as ever they have gath. ered in their beautiful Synagogue I and worshipped strictly in conformi ty to the tenets and laws "handed down to them by Moses." And our colored people, too, have worshiped and glorified it as a week of "prayer and good service," and both the Methodist and Baptist, Churches - of these people were thronged with "the devout and the sinners." Our Baptist friends turn ed out, on Easte', with the largest and best behaved assemblage ever on a "baptizing ceremonial," to the Bayou, which tended to add to the celebrations of the day. With all these appropriate and be litng, religious.ee emenea, which w record withta piasure, and hope tbidie° renewed more anti more, as Utt~e deals gently with us all, we now s toour usual Weekly chat about big . and their RIVER NEws. TI snbstitbhe of the departed Bart. Able, the Yazoo Valley, only left this port,' downward bound, at 6 A. . rhursday, but had a tolerably fair trip for the times. The Jewel was the steamer lear. ing Wednelsday, with the river mail, and reached here, in regular snail :!,e, about 8 o'clock Friday night. The mail she brouglht was delivered to psin the. Post Office oenly five *ur a ead of theone received here Sttnrddy, which left the City 24 hours later than the Jewel's mail. So it will be seen, after all, that the Red River Stage Route4s the sorb, certain and most regu!ar one.

The Silver City is due down, and should be expected at any moment. ..-FEw business men in Alexan dria, have in their charge and handle Iwith such marked ability, so varied a business as Ju!ius Lavin, whose I standing card continually graces our qolumqs, and whose every speciality I isearried to the letter.

Church. - DISTRIBUTION OF PRIZES TO THB SUNDAY SCHOOL CLASSES. The services held in St. James' n Protestant Episcopal Church, on Eas ter Sunday were of a most inter- I eating nature. By II o'clock, A. M., the usual hour for service, the Church ( was filled to overflowing, extra seats t bad to be provided, as the pews were insufficient to seat all who came to i hear. As the intonation of the last bell died away, the choir and organ burst forth with the exalting and tri umphant Easter carol, "The Lord is risen to-day." The Rector, Mr. 0g ben, looking morose and pale from his arduous Lenten services, read the I morning prayers, assisted by Mr. Bar- I rett, in a solemn and impressive man- I ner. Mr. Ogden, who has resigned, I and will shortly leave here in res ponse to a call from Shreveport,- to oe onpy the position lately vacated by f the Rev. Dr. Dalsell, made an earnest appeal to his Congregation, in behalf of the welfare of St. James Church, and proper maintenance of his succes sor. He stated that according to the Jewish Law, a tithe or tenth was the prescribed offering laid upon the altar, apart from the alms giving, and other charities. He eloquently urged upop his hearers not to let those saered doors remain closed, or that bell bo si-! lent, for want of that manliness and sense of duty, needful to keep ap their Church and Snuday Schools-stating that there were no less than sixty con- I tributing fimilies in this care, and sarel7 their Pastor might be generous- 1 ly assisted, without the necessity of humiliting appeals from the ncum bent to remind his parishioners of their duty -or still holding Fairs, and ungodly entertainments to .sup port the house of God. He then went on to say that he verily believed the poverty and distress of this people, since the war, might be regarded s the judgment of God, for their mdi.nd I ference and disregard ot His sacred i cause, and that no worldly prosperity would ever come to them, unless theyS bowed their necks unto the Lord. That this address was not without efoct, may be induced frbom the faet that the writer Was told later in the day by a gentleman, that he felt so deeply the force of these remarks, that he was determined in future to give freely, and all he could possibly spare to the Church. Mr. Ogden then deivereud an ab e and affecting'sermon fiom the apipro priate teet-"Jesu e sMd s~te her, lass the resurrecttopyad the( Ae tAsSt believetk in ms, t Apij& Ah were dead,ytt shalhe live: And who8oever UiNPo ead believeth is mse sha ll ecer die. BM'iPdi thou this t"--an oft repeated theme, yet ever full of mournful and touch. ing interest, as depicting the glorious martyrdom of the Divine Jesus. The morning prayers closed with the Communion service, over one hun dred communicants partaking Ieve rently of the blessed bread and wine, in commeminoration ofthe superhruman history of the cross. At 4 o'clock P. x., a Festival was held in St. Jaieest Chulorch, for the Sun day School children. Theo children of St. Peter's Ciurch, Mr, G. W. Bolton, Superintendent, were-met ia fronteol the residence of the Hon. J. G. White, from the Cliicohby the Sunda i , of St. Jamei, (accomplieid'bt'jhe of ~t. Phiillip'sMrs.'Wllsi, rhu teudent,) with their able Superinten deant, Mr. John M. Barrett, and his ef fIcient aslsistant, Mr. Charles 8.

The Aer~fiee Iopened with the carol "Let the Merry Church Bells Ring," in which all the little voices earnestly joided.
