Ye Gods ! -A CORRESPONlDINT Of the Cin cinnati, Enquirer reports that Joe McDonald said recently that if Cleveland were nominated for pres- 1 idente, he would take the second place on the ticket, if tendered him by the convention. This would make an exceptionally strong tick et. Cleveland would carry New York, and all the soap Republicans could rake up could not carry Indi ana from McDonald. --WHAT is good enough for the Louisiaria Democrats is good enough for the Louisiana Republicans, so far as the tiirff is concerned. They stanid shouldcr to shotilder,in sweet juxtapositiof-, jn sugarV'union, as it wiref upon the pittectivte principle. Yet the resolutions of the Demo c:atic convention and the Republi can State committee, do not. repre sent the opinion of a majority of the State, and we are willing to huatd the:opinion that after the D)emoscratic Ni.tional Convention the miaiiageir of th:e tw6partiestwill not continue in such sweet accord. -[New Orleans States. THE STATE NIVRSVI ITY BILL. B' Thursday's papers we learn that the House of Representatives, by a vote of 55 to 34,. passed the University Bill, which provides for Li the removal of the- Louisiana State University and Agricultural and Mechanical College from Baton TM Rouge to this Parish. For weeks past our people have watched this question closely, and relying strong ly on the promises of Hoii. Robt. P. Hunter and Ifon. 8. F. Meeker, their Representatives, knew full well that their wishes would be fufilled~, These gentlemen deserve our heartiest thanks for their ac- U tioni in the inaiter, and if the Sen ate" will only do as the House has, the restoration of the University here is. a fixed fact. In regard to the $25,000 which onr Parish is to place in the State Treasury there 1 is no doubt but that our people will - subscrtbe it. With both thie Hospital and Sem r nary our Parish will be benefitted. - The vote in detail on the Uni versity bill says: B: s YEAS - Armstrong of Sabino, a Armstrong of St. Renard, Bank ston, Bath,'Bourgeois, Brovn, Bul n ger, Cage, Carpari, Cassidy, 'Cay ole, Coulon, Darier, Davis of De Soto, Davidson, Dickerson, Down ing, Dudenheffer, Ewell, Feehan, a Fitzpatrick, Foster, Garder, Gex, d Gibson,.
