The Seereasses or Demoereate Clubs
Will confer a favor upon the editors of this col
umn by sending to the CRssacln office after each
meeting of the several clubs wh!ch they represent,
a synopsis of the proceedings. We are com
pelled to ask this from them, as the rapidly in.
creasing number of Democratic clubs in the city
render it impossible for a local foroe, however
large, to attend every meeting. We wish to make
this column a cimplete compendium of local
political Intelligence, and, with the aid of our
friends, will certainly do so. But such assistance
is nee'r~ary. We trust that the Democrats of the
city will give it.

who, at the first report of the pistols, had surged
towards the scene of the affray from every direc

their default two young men, wa'll known in the
city, arrested the disturbers of the peace and dig
t.ity of the State of Louisiana. As soon as they

thrse two hot-blooded belligerents are reposing
within the classic precincts of the calaboose, Im
patiettly waiting the coming of their deliverance,

r bidren's hands were not made to scratch out
each other's eyes out."
e beore we close we wish to call the attention of

at first glance, would be taken for white. When
the thing began, an immense crowd congregated,

the colored people and those from the whites
were encouraging to either aide. After the affray

this tine are good, and although we occasionally
hear of injury by the worm, it is not of a charac
ter asyet to produce any alarm."
The Shreveport South Western of August 26th
says: " The weather for the past week was very
a favorable for cotton picking, which, we lear,
has become general, both on th- hills and In the
bottoms. Cotton hbaopened suffimently for good
hands to average from 150 to 200 pounds per
day. On some plahtations the ravages of the

material damage has orccrred. We hear of a
good deal of comp'aint of the boll worm Is places,
but their appearance is not general. The proe
