At a "white man's convention" in Dover, Delaware, the other day, only twenty-five persona, all, it is reported, Democrats, assembled.

Judge Richardson, of Massachusetts, whose resignation as assistant secretary of the treasury has not been accepted by Mr. Boatwell, and consequently not by the President, will return iu a very short tine and resume the duties ot that office. The Natchitoches Tinits is glad to learn that the planters of that parish have good stands of corn and cotton, and prospects of a bountiful yield. The hope is expressed thaf "enough corn has been planted for all the demands of home consumption. The address by Dr. Robert T. Creamer to the John Brown rioueer Republican Club, last evening, was listened to by a very large audience, and there were frequent demon strations of approbation ot the sentiments he uttered, which were iu perfect accord'with the principles of the great Republican party of the nation. Mr. Brewster of Ouachita, aud Messrs. R. 11. Isabelle and A. E. Briber also spoke. A large number of ladies graced the meeting by their presence. Such ot our readers as iutend spending the hot mouths across tho lake will be glad to learn that the Crescent Hotel, at Bay St. Louis, is to be opeued with new aud supo rior accommodations, aud under the man agement of those popular caterers, Messrs. A. Pino aud G. Battero, of this city. This announcement is sufficient to draw a large number of boarders, for, under its new aus pices, the Creeceut Hotel must prove t.n agreeable resort for our citizens. In the Supreme Court yesterday, Mr. A. A. Atocha, counsel for Alexauder Gratvofli, made a motion for the release of his client, whose case is ptnding in that couit on ap peal, the grounds of his motion being the taws that went Into effect on the first day of April, 1S70, and the decisions of the Suoreme Court in the twelfth and thirteenth Annual Reports, Tho object of the motion by Mr. Atocha, who is counsel on behalf of the prosecution in many cases, aud also ou the side of the defense in a large number of caee6, being to have a determination of the question in proper form by the tribunal of last resort in the State. The court took the motion under advisement, and it is presumed will decide without delay. Capt. Dan Hickok had a cluster diamond pin snatched from his 6hirt bosom, on the fair ground, during fair week. He declined offering any reward, and said nothing of bis loss, except to relate to a few friends a little joke connected with the theft. On last Sun day several ot these friends had au elegant dinner at the Carrollton House, and upon •eking for and receiving the bill, it w&6 carefully folded and returned to Capt. H., with a suggestion to examine it again. Upon doing so, he discovered his pin in closed. Mysterious! wasn't it? The return of the pin was wortu the dinner. No ques tions were asked. Wo know one o r two ■ others who have suffered similar losses who would like to fall in with such a little " din ner party," and who have offered sums as a reward sufficient to pay* for half a dozen J inters. THE LATE FAIR. I .During the continuance of the late I State Fair the KEPimLicAN' devoted mnch I of its space to the dtacrip'ion of the many I valuable articles placed there for inspec- j lion, and competing for the hanisome I premiums distributed by (he Aw arding I Committee. We previously had occa- I rion to give vent to our g'ratified feelings I upon viewing the beautilul and well arranged grounds of the Fair, and had spoken in teims of just commendation of I the gvn.leuien, who, at an auspicious lime, I wisely conceived the purpose of founding an institution that is well calculated to stirrur' tc- and assist in develop-1 .ng tlio wmks ot not-unly the agikultur-1 Ft8, man. Tacturers, , artizms, mechanics I and stout raisers, but of tho artists skilled I i.: the fine arts. In former days the short road to wealth, improvement and distinc- I tion was thought to be through the culti vation alone of the leading staples of the I Gulf States—cotton, sugar and tobacco— and. in rigidly pursuing this thought, all things elte were neglected; and the const'-1 qucuce was, our people were dependent on other sections of our country and Eu-1 rope for many things that should have I been raised or made at home. We were [ deprived of that great variety of business | that is essential to make a people truly prosperous aud great in all the depart- J mc-nts o! trade. The inventive genius of I our people has been also sadly neglected through the all-absorbing passion to make I cotton king, and in works of art the iSoutb I is also very deficient. I very From the grand display witnessed at the I Fair Grounds of things worth Beeing, many of them the products of Southern I skill and labor, we are convincd that a I wonderful change has been wrought in j the minds of our people, and that they are I in the future not to be confined to the raising of two or three articles. That, in-1 stead of making the Sonth into a few large cotton and cane fields, it is their design that it shall be cut up into fields of all kinds that can be made productive—into flourishing farms, as we find them in the | Northern, Eastern and Western seclions of our country. With free labor, it will, eventually, become necessary to abandon the old plantation system entirely. In do ing this the lands will be cultivated in smaller quantifies, and, perhaps, with I much more care. They will fall into the hands of the actual tillers, who, as the owners, will feel some pride in making home comfortable. They will not be con fined to one idea, and that to make cotton. It is more than likely that farmers will find it profitable to cultivate everything ihit can be grown here; and it may be wise to change (heir crops. They will also go more into stock and fruit raising. We are convinced of this by what was seen at I the Fair, and we devoted mtteh of our I space in describing ILicgs worth seeing I ihere, in order that the Reitjblican might I do its whole duly iu helping to carry out I the evident design of the gen lemon who compose the Fair Association of this State. I The Premium List made out by them was I one that embraced all things that are useful and that can be produced here with profit. We feel, however, that the South j is pre-eminently an agricultural country, I and therefore revert with pride to the | premiums that were awarded in depart rnent A for the best farm products, cereals and cereal food, fruit, vegetable*, seeds, canned fruits, meats, fish. etc.; pickles, confectionary, sweetmeats, cakes, native I wines, spirits and malt liquors. Among the cereals is included rice, which in cer-1 tain sections of our State is becoming a I most profiiable ar,d easy crop to raise. The articles above enumerated, most of them coming under the head of farm pro-1 d icts, are things that have been almost I entirely neglected in the past—so much so that we have been almost de- I so that we have been almost entirely de pendent on other sections of our country lor meat and bread, and many other ar tides that can be produced here with little or no cost. Among them may be enumerated butter and cheese. The dis-1 play in Department A was not as good as I could be desired of articles that have I been produced in our own State, but the ] fact that our people are now stimulated and encouraged to go into all the varieties I of farm and stock raising, as well I a3 works of the manufacturers, artisans I and mechanics, leaves but little doubt but I tlaat our State will go on improving in this I respect until it will bo able to compare I favorably with the older free States ot the I Union; for it must be acknowledged that I slavery in the past has had all to do uitli contiuing our people to the cultivation of I cane ar>d cotton. The very fact that a j silver medal was given for the best speci- I men of batter made in Louisiana, and I tbe same for the best specimen of specimen cheese, is indeed significant. Und the relorm ol the labor system and the cul liva ion of moderate sized farms, the rais of stock, fruit, and the making of butter, cheese, and the raising of vegetables for home aud ether purposes will be more practiced than heretofore. Under the old plantation system everything had to be neglected for cotion and sugar. It is be lieved uow these articles can be success fully raised at the same time that fruit and stock are produced. Stock will in crease and fruit orchards give their Yield, while the husbandman is engaged iu tilling the soil, or is rapt in refit shing sleep. Cows calve and give milk, from which butter and cheese are produced, and these productions help to swell the profits of the farmer, while they do not necessarily absorb much of his time. The same can be said of poultry and stock cf all descriptions. Fheep are profitable not only for their meat, but for their wool; and bogs are profitable to raise; so are hones and mules. Every thing cf this kind help to swell the wealth and commerce of a country; help to make busine&s for men. The putting up of honey, dried fruit, preserves, pickles, canned fruit, etc., must become profitable in this State at no distant day; for these are also articles that can be had without mnch labor. Although we are particular in reverting to all things that appertain to the agricul turist, we do not mean to neglect the MHMMNffS I cbanic. Their works were fully repre I sented at the fair, in every branch, and I we were glad to perceive veiy many I articles claimed to have been manufac tured in this and other Southern States, The large amount of horse power ma chines for plantu ion Use; power machines for gathering ciop=; machines for prepar iGg crops for market; firm and plantation machinery and implements; machim ry c! every description and of the heave.st kind, most of it coming from distant States of the Union, and much of it exhibited art the Fair Grounds, must serve a useful purpose. But these are only a lew, comparatively, of the maoy in teresting things that were placed there for ic-pec!ion. Among the work? of art there were many things to admire. Among them was a superb paint ing, large s ! ze, representing General Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson, mounted on their horses. There was also an "Original Design," clissed as the best specimen of ornamental penmansLip; water color drawings, and infl ation of manuscript combined. It made quite a large picture, handsomely framed, and was pronounced a work of much merit, It was executed by Mr. Frank Liard, of this city, J FEOPLE'S PARTY, I ^ dozen or fifteen editors of con THE dozen servative papers have recently been hold I a convention for the purpose, as ihere I shows, of forming a new party, I Within tlle P a 't ,en or a dozen years these I ^ en *' emen have been attached to ihree or M our different organizations, called by as I man ^ different names, such as Democracy, I Know-Nothingism, Southern Bights, Se j cesa,on ' Conservative, etc. All these hav I had the same object in view—the at ta | nment of political power—have been re 3 ec ®d by the people, and the dbtim be recognized as leaders gnished leaders are left without followers. They propose now, therefore, to sponge the slate and start anew. They wish to organize a People's party, of which they Silence is to be invoked for the past, as the new party is to be formed "with out reference or regard to antece dents, political or legal.Probably an exception to the rule would be udnflt * n castt were proved that the appli Cftnt hadalwa . vs beea a consistent Repub lican. This old cry ot '-let bygones be bygones" is generally raised by those who are ashamed of iheir record, have nothing in their past history to be proud of, and fear to have their acts testify against them. They are unwilling to abide by the logical results of their own doctrine for the last ten years. In the formation of the new party, I therefore, they are met with difficulties I an( i perplexities at tne very threshold, I As the record ot the parlies they have I heretofore controlled and ruined presents I nothing useful, popular orvuluable, they pray for the charity of oblivion and tacit I ly promise to do better in ihe ftiture. I They wish to throw their promites, extoit ed from them by their hapless situation in the balance,against the recorded acts of the Republicans. They accuse the lat'er of hypocrisy; of ptofessing correct principles without in'ending to carry them out. This charge implies that the leaders of tl 1 ® People's party, if taken ou trial by tb® people, and given a chance, could and would carry out the Republican principles with the utmost zeal and sincerity. These me I 1 who have fought agaisnt the priuci P'® 8 °f Union, freedom and equality all t ^ e ^ r lives, now set themselves up as more proper champions than those who tave contended for them, fought for them sacrificed for them and triumphed with ^® m - The late Democracy, of which the loaders in the new movement have bitber *° b een regarded as the shining lights, is no * amenable to the charge of hypocrisy toward the colored race. The ora tors, newspaper writers and members generally of that party have ridiculed villitied, imprisoned, enslaved, Elur dered and denied the political and c l v l* rights ot that race all their lives with mos t refreshing frankness and sincer 11^ Nearly every member of the late convention represented a locality where I convention represented a locality where I political zeal and directness of action I ^ as boca practiced for many years, wiih I a PP iren t fall concurrence or co-opera I ** 011 these assailers of Radical sincerity, I But these are the acts for which they iui I Pl° re forgetfulness. If the people I them ano'her trial, they promise to do belter, not better than the Eepnbli I cans bave done, but they will behave iu j ^ ie future better than they have in the I P i8 t- It is difficult to see what the colored I race > or uny other element of our pop | ulation is to gain by changing their long tried friends; the party that is justly proud of its record, for men confessedly ashamed of theirs, and over which they seek to draw tLe vail of for getfulness. That accomplished fact, the Clteenth amendment, will long stand as a monument cf what the Republican party has done for the colored people. To charge the earnest friends of that measure with hypocrisy, and at the same time offer their bitter opponents as specimens of laudable sincerity woithy of confidence, upon a vagne promise of doing right in the future, is to make a burlesque of his tory no less than to suppose the colored people to be wanting in common sense. Let the new party leaders thoroughly purge themselves of their antecedents, cease to ridicule and abuse colored men: let them come out and join in celebration of the fifteenth amendment in all sincerity, and they may be received as recruits into the great Republican army that has been for years waring for the common rights of humanity. For they may depend upon it that until they have shown that they are truly penitent, their former errors, blun ders and crimes, will be remembered to the last day of their lives. Not to punish, bat to watch and avoid, will these men be held in remembrance by all Union men and Republicans. Since they have been hulred from power, our political, finan cial, commercial and social affairs have been slowly but surely improving. The people dread a relapse, and are not likely 0N THE LOOKOUT. The press of the Sonth need fear no danger. The editors may safely relax iheir proverbiil vigilance, and sleep in peace, for "G. It. Reynold*, press repor ter," is on guard on the western confines of civilization. He stands perched upon his observatory at Austin, with one eye on the rascally Uni^p leaguers, aud tho other on the uiuin chance Happening io look ov r toward the State Journal c 'fico the oth**r night, at the doleful hour of twelve, he saw a fearful sight. The doors were lockt-d, barred ami guarded. Insi ie they were printing someth mg. Such a tliiog has happened in the Republican office during the session of the Legislature. But according to the astute Richard, the work was no innocent legislative bill or report of a committee, bat a veritable in cendiary circular, signed by J. G. Tracy, Grand President, and George W. Honey, Acting Grand Secretary. Ttis incendiary document calls the attention of the Union leagues to tho fact tiiat^ the Fifteenth Amendment has been adop'ed, and some modifications are required in the organiza tions of the State Councils of the League. Therefore, says the vigilant sentinel, who has apparently just awoke from a nap, "I warn you ot (his effort to enforce negro social equaliiy by means of the L agues." We accept the warning of the friendly press reporter. We thank him for making us feel thus unpleasant, for we are hor ribly scaied. But we don't know what we can do about it. If the leaguers, with their grand officers, will do such ihings at midnight under the very nose of the self-constituted guardian of the South, and the modern Lochiel of the press, how are we to prevent it. It is all well enough to warn us, Mr. Richard, but we would at the same time be glad to have you show that it is any of our or your business at what hour the Austin Journal prints circulars, or what regulations the leaguers make in regard to the fifteenth amend ment ON CARONDELE! If there could be such a thing as com parison between one of these dull busi ness days and another, the remark might be hazarded that yesterday was the slu pidest day of the season; but there have been ot late so many days remarkable for their superlative inertia, that it would be folly to attempt to award the palm. The most interesting topic afloat yesterday was the approaching "mill." Stock iu that enterprise did not go begging, though excursion tickets were nat placed upon the list at the brokers' board. Mace was the favorite upon the street, standing with reference to histcotr.pe'itor as 100 does to 70(g80. Many diguifi.-d individuals, with a good many whose claims to deportment would not be universally acknowledged, will witness the end of these (abstract) speculations tbis morning, and then this last "fancy" investment will disappear from the market inslanter. There is very little to report of yester day's transactions. There was some stir in Slaughterhouse, which improved slight ly. The decisions delivered by the Su preme Court in the morning may have con tributed to this advancement. The highest State tribunal refuses to al low the fra ternily of butchers to any longer contest the monopoly, and it would seem as though the company, by the use of ordi nary business skill and enterprise, ought to be able to conduct a very large and very profitable business. The shares sold as follows yesterday: 200 and 129 at $29 25; three lots of 100 each at $29 50; 100 atSliO; 100 at $30 25; 50 at $30 50: 100 and 300 at $30 75, and, alter the board. 100 at $29, and the same amount for June 1, at the last named figure. At the board 50 and, 100 shares brought $29 25, and at the last call $29 was asked. Ship Island has revived a liltlo also. During the morniDg two parcels, of 500 shares each, changed hands at $1 37$ and $1 42.1 respectively. At the board 200 shares went for the last named price, and after the adjournment $1 45 was accepted for 1000 shares more. At the board $35 was bid for Louisiana Lottery, wish no takers. For to-day we can not predict a large busine-s. The stock of tho New Orleans, Jackson and Great Northern Railroad it is supposed will soon bo pleasantly elevated, in consequence of the patronage of the immense number of excursionists who propose to avail themselves of its accom modations for a scientific and pleasure trip to-day. This fact, however, had no appreciable effect upon its market value yesterday. m The following exhibits prices and trans act. ons at the Brokers' Hoard last evenin' 1 ' Orescent City Slaughterhouse and J anat Company. as?-'ed.
