Indiana papers tell of a broken hearted
widower who has erected a pine slab over
the newly made grave of his wife, and has
presented a costly piano to a young lady
who "has been very kind to him in his
great affliction."
A correspondent ot the Boston Post writes
from Washington that General Logan has
asserted, in the most positive and emphatic
manner, that he means to go to Cincinnati
and do his best to secure the nomination
of Mr. Trumbull for President.
The merchants of Charleston have pre

Hugh J. Campbell riding in his buggy
along Canal street, accompanied by that
eloquent colored orator, Mr. Frederick

A Kentucky entomologist has kept two
vigorous musketoes under an inverted tum
bler for six months without food, and they
remain in a healthy condition. This clearly
proves that their annoyance of mankind is
entirely uncalled for, and not at all neces
sary to their sustenance.

The ladies of Alaska are said to wear a
body dress of equal proportions of fur and
dirt, arranged to suit the taste of the
wearers. The married ladies all wear sil
ver rings in their noses and needles through
t heir lower lips, while elderly ladies add to
thei r irresistible charms a "stopper," what
ever that may be, in the upper lip.
There is a woman in Springfield who is
determined*not to be cheated. She pur
chased a spool of cotton thread at a dry
goods store the other day and insisted on
having the clerk unwind and measure it, to
make sure it did. not fall below 200 yards.
If this were to become a general practice,
cotton thread would be up in price or the
sale of it would surely become unprofitable.
When a carpet is taken up to be cleaned,
' the floor beneath it is generally very much
covered with dust. This dust is very fine
and dry, and poisonous to the lungs. Before
removing it, sprinkle the floor with very

germs that may be present, and so thor

sweet. ___.

An old building which was occupied as a
courthouse three score of years before the
remembrance of the oldest inhabitant was
sold the other day for $55. It was captured

was all that it was worth.

In describing the origin of the Waterly
Magazine, a correspondent says the proprie
tor hit ujion the ingenious scheme of pub
lishing any composition, prose or verse,
that might be contributed, on condition
that the author should take fifty copies of
the issue. The paper acquired a large cir
culation at the start, and what was better,
the "copy" didn't cost anything.
A laywoman in Providence, a milliner by
trade, but nevertheless a favorite exhorter
at the evening meetings of the elect, thus
gave her reasons for belief in the existence
of a Supreme Being: "Sisters, I am just
as confident that there is a God as I am
that there are bonnets in Paris; and that I
know for certain, as I yesterday received
from there a choice assortment of the
most fashionable styles, which I will trim
with more taste and sell lower than any
milliner in the city."
Ex-Senator Stringer, of Georgia, recently
lost his wife, but in six days he married
another, and she in six more days took
refuge in her pa's house. Poor Stringer is
disconsolate, and immediately in front of
his house has nailed on each of two trees a
plank, on which he has inscribed in bold
letters, with charcoal, these words: "Come
lioufe. come home, my dear wife." There
is a similar placard on his house, bearing
the same inscription: '-Come home, my
dear wife."
The character of the population of the
New England States is likely U> undergo
serious modification before another decade
has passed. In 1870 the excess of births
from foreign parentage over native parent
age was 2776. an excess greater than in any
year since 1865. While descendants of the
Pilgrims are migrating to the Western,
Middle and Southern States, where better
opportunities are perhaps offered for accu
mulating fortunes than in sterile New Eng
land, their places are being taken by Eng
lish, Irish and Canadians. Some of the
oldest farms in New England have passed
into the possession of Irishmen.
Weil may it be said that "time works
wonders." This was never more truth
fully demonstrated than within the past
few years. It was to carry out the ultra
doctrine of State rights, as understood by
Southern slaveholders, that the war for
secession and slavery commenced. The
Democratic leaders of the South led the
Southern people into rebellion against the
national government, teaching them that
their first allegiance was to their State.
This was the doctrine they promulgated
to save slavery, and make it the leading
power of the land. But the people of the
United States—a large majority of them—
were opposed to this interpretation of
State rights, and would not consent to a
peaceable dissolution of the Union. And
the consequence was the Southern Demo
crratic leaders—Slidell, Benjamin, Davis,
Yancey, Toombs, and a host of just such
men, plunged the Southern States and the
Southern people into rebellion against the
national government, simply that they
might be permitted not only to own alld
have slaves in the States where slavery ex
isted, but to extend it into the Terri
The growing tendency of the slave power
before the war was to make slavery national
and freedom sectional; and this was to be
accomplished under the Southern States
rights doctrine, which taught that the
power of the States was superior to the
national government; that the national
government derived its powers from the
States, and that, therefore, the national
government had no right to enforce its
laws against States that refused to obey
them. The people of the United States—
a large majority of them—were in favor of
the enforcement of the laws by the national
government, and the consequence was re
bellion on the part of the Southern people,
who were taught by their Democratic
leaders to despise and rebel against national
authority and uphold States rights and
The rebellion cost the slaveholders their
slaves. And now what do we behold?
Why, these very same Democrats, who
were contending for the right of secession
in 18G1, now invoking the power of the
national government to subdue lawful
State governments! Not only this. We
find them ready to rebel against a lawful
State government, and actually preaching
the non-payment of taxes to the people,
and advising them to join the "Iron House
military organization," and be prepared
to resist by force and violence the enforce
ment of the law! Was ever a people so
humbugged and outraged by a set of
shameless political demagogues, who are
everything in turn for a political purpose.
In 18G1 they denied and defied the authori
ty of the national government, and assert
ed the supremacy of State governments.
In 1872 they advise the people to rebel
against a State government if it attempts
to enforce the law by civil process, and
calls upon the national government to aid
them in their rebellion. It is not strange
that colored men—formerly the slaves of
these inconsistent Democrats—should
worship the power of the national govern
ment and honestly feel it is right to do so.
That is misplaced gratitude on their part,
for if they owe gratitude it belongs to the
American people and not to their servant,
placed temporarily at the head of their
government But the thought can not be
reconciled that the fire-eating Democrat
and slaveholder of 1961 should turn up in
1872 the ally of his former slaves in ad
vocating a total subversion of the rights
of States by an armed intervention of the
national government. We are satisfied
that but a small portion of the Southern
people can ever again be made to follow
such leaders.
The convention adjourned sine die on
Monday night last. Its session was a pro
longed one, extending into portions of five
days and nights, and we are disposed to
think it -will accomplish some good. The
convention has certainly done no harm to
our colored fellow-citizens. On the con
trary, it has proved to every unprejudiced
mind that the colored or negro element of
this country is not without mental abil
ity. We are not disposed, like our neigh
bor, the Times, to view them with a
critic's eye, or depreciate their worth by
making odious comparisons. We are dis
posed to be just and charitable to that por
tion of the population of our country
that springs from African lineage. The
fact that the negro has not improved in
tellectually in Africa does not incapacitate
him for improvement in this country un
der the stimulating influences of Repub
lican institutions and the bright examples
of the Caucasian race. If we were not
convinced that this was the case before
the assembling of the National Colored
Convention in this city, the amount
of intelligence embraced in that body was
sufficient to prove that the negro is capa
ble of intellectual improvement. A large
number of the members of that conven
tion will compare favorably with the ma
terial of which conventions are generally
composed in this country, and not a few
were remarkable for their graceful oratory
and powers of reasoning. Among these,
Mr. Douglass must be classed, in this re
spect, as the brightest star of his race.
He has evidently made oratory a study,
and has achieved a proficiency in it that
has extended his fame not only all over
this broad land, but to nations of the old
world. From a poor, oppressed, unedu
cated slave. Frederick Douglass has risen
to eminence by the force of his own will
and intellectual capacity. He may not be
as profound as a Blaekstone. or a Bacon,
or a Locke, but he lias certainly made
himself an accomplished orator and de
bater, and has been listened to with pleas
ure by the intellectual magnates of the
Mr. Clarke, of^hio, is another of the
delegates recently assembled here who
does honor to his race in the display of a
rare intellectual capacity. He is a fluent,
easy speaker, and a close reasoner. His
conservative tendencies and judicious con
duct in the national convention just closed
mark him as a most useful man to his
race—one who is capable of giving good
advice, and is not inclined to treat the
opinions of others with disrespect, al
though they may conflict with his own.
Mr. Ruffin, of Massachusetts, is another
of the members of the convention just held
who is an honor to his race. He is a gen
tleman of much intellectnal capacity, and
evidently of large experience in public life.
He has served in the Legislature of Massa
chusetts, and we should judge, from his
conduct here as a delegate, with distinc
tion. Mr. Ruifin is an able speaker, and,
from what we saw of him in the chair of
the convention, is an accomplished pre
siding officer over a deliberative body.
Lieutenant Governor Ransier and Mr.
Cardoza, Secretary of State, both of South
Carolina, were also, from their mental
capacity and training, men of prominence
in the convention. There were also other
colored gentlemen of marked ability there,
and not least among them stood the dele
gates from Louisiana. But our object is
not so much to single out individuals and
give them prominence as to establish the
fact that the material of the convention
was generally good—far better than, from
the advantages colored men formerly en
joyed in this country, the public were
led to expect.
If the convention fails to obtain the im
mediate recognition of the same civil
rights for the colored people of this coun
try that are enjoyed by other people it will
not fail to accomplish some good. It will
demonstrate the fact that colored men are
capable of intellectual improvement, and
this will, in the future, have much to do
with removing the prejudice that with
holds from the colored people their full
meed of civil rights.
A resolution passed the convention the
last night of its session authorizing the
president, Mr. Douglass, to appoint dele
gates to a national convention, which is to
meet ^ the call of the president, when he
shall deem it necessary. ID. Douglass
appointed, in accordance with that resolu
tion, the following named gentlemen dele
gates: Pinchback, of Louisiana; Down
ing, of Rhode Island; Ruffin, of Massachu
setts; Gibbs, of Arkansas; Rapier, of Ala
bama; Turner, of Georgia; Ransier, of
South Carolina; Spellman, of Mississippi;
Barbadoes, District of Columbia; L. H.
Douglass, of New York; Seals, of Califor
nia; Langston, of Kansas; Stevenson, of
Kentucky; W. V. Stevens, of Virginia;
George T. Ruby, of Texas.
A momentous and decisive step has been
taken by a large number of the most
prominent, ardent and influential leaders
of our party in Louisiana. Perhaps a
majority of the men whose mimes are in
scribed upon the records of all Republican
triumphs in this State have determined to
attend the Cincinnati convention; and
their reasons for thus departing from
usual party customs are embodied in an
appeal to the people of the country, which,
for terseness, force and conclusive reason
ing, is a remarkable document, indeed.
It will be found in to-day's paper, and its
careful perusal should not be omitted by
any one having at heart a sincere sym
pathy with the effort for reform, national
and State, which is so imperatively de
manded by the condition of public affairs.
The offenses—the crimes—of the Presi
dent's office-holders against the Republican
party are bearing natural fruit in this ac
tion of the men who alone could earn* the
State for his re-election, and naught but
the blindest and most unreasoning par
tisanship can condemn the rebuke thus
given to the unlicensed exercise of power
by which it was designed to control or
overthrow the opinions and actions of our
The list of signers to this important
political paper, not being complete in the
country parishes, has not yet been fur
nished for publication; but it contains an
imposing array of names, both as regards
numbers and rank. Their action can not
fail to add to the enthusiasm already
aroused by the demonstrations in New
York and elsewhere in favor of the Cincin
nati movement.
The Picayune is in profound tribulation
because some wealthy citizens have chosen
to abandon their pews in Christ Church,
and decline paying the taxes levied upon
them. The reason of this is ascribed to
the inability of the occupants to meet the
heavy burden of taxation. This, how
ever, appears to us but an excuse. The
most probable theory is the religious fer
vor of the "wealthy citizens" has cooled,
and the money heretofore devoted to the
maintenance of the Gospel is wanted for
some more congenial purpose.
But aside from this, the practice of the
Picayune of ascribing every incident of
this description to bad government is the
sheerest nonsense. Does it imagine for a
moment that anybody believes the state
ment, or gives the Picayune credit for be
lieving it? The fax upon the costliest
pew in Christ Chnrcljj does not exceed
thirty dollars. A man able to pay $500
or $000 for a pew could feel no pecuniary
distress in incurring this additional ex
penditure. Especially would it be paid
rather than deprive his family of the con
solations of religious service, if he were
sincere and devoted to his religion, and
not a miser with his money.
But this transcendental grief of our
calico neighbor is all for the "wealthy
citizen. " The misery it perceives is all
among the rich and opulent, and none
with the poor and lowly. This is surpris
ing, in view of the fact that it is eminently
the "people's organ." But, perhaps, the
Picayune is not aware of the fact that
nine-tenths of the delinquent taxpayers of
New Orleans are rich people. They have al
ways some excuse to plead for avoiding the
just and necessary expenses of government,
while they use with inveterate vigor every
appliance of the law to wring their high
priced rental from the poor and toiling
tenants who inhabit their inexpensive and
cheaply constructed tenements. To-day
the very richest men in New Orleans have
not paid their taxes, not from inability,
but from sheer reluctance to meet the
honest dues of government. Does the
Picayune wish to know who they are?
They are among its stockholders. But
what drayman or poor man has failed to
discharge these obligations. None bf these
complaiir of taxation. This emanates
alone from the pampered creatures of
luxury, wealth and pride, who extort their
grand resources from the laboring man as
they once extorted it from the slave. It
is for such as these this self-styled and
falsely assumed exponent of the people's
tights makes its loudest outcry. It lives
by catering to their selfish purposes, and
parrot-like repeating their puerile com
True, "the people can reopen all the
avenues of general prosperity, bring into
play all the functions of a healthy, vigor
ous life, and cram State and city with a
destiny of never-surpassed magnificence
and beauty," and the way to do it is
to 'stop the trafficing and intrigues of
party by converting the energy employed
in petulant complaints into commercial
enterprise and a patriotic support of law
and peace and order. It can not be done
by revolution—by compelling the poor to
meet the obligations of government while
thfe rich flaunt in luxury, indolence and
Away, then, with this senseless clamor !
A fig for your threats of violence and tu
mult. There is not a hostile blow or a
loyal fight from the eagle-capped summit
of the Picayune to the curbstone beneath
it. The barking dog never bites. The
Picayune is evidently of the humor of
the man Who was urging, during the
late war, for volunteers to enter the army.
"Go, my brave young friends, " said he,
' 'fight for your country—die for it, if it be
necessary: for it is sweet to die for our na
tive land. "
"But," said one, "if it is sweet to die for
one's country, why don't you go ?"
This was a po3er, and for a moment dis
concerted him, but rallying, he replied
that he, as an individual, teas not fond of
sweet things.
So with the Picayune. It is striving
might and main to stir up a clamor and
tumult it will be the first to deprecate
when the strife is begun.
Mr. Hurralson, who made the best speech
by all odds at the meeting on Lafayette
square, Monday night, said that he had
but one thing to say against Governor
Wannoth, and that was "he disliked to
support a man who allowed the Democrats
to pat him on the back." Has Mr. Harxal
son read the Democratic papers and heard
the Democratic orators? Has he been told
who led the mob that attempted to revolu
tionize the Legislature last fall, and called
upon the President to overthrow the State
government ? Has he had his eyes about
him since he has been in the city ? Does
he know who the supporters of the Cus
tomhouse faction are? If he has read,
and been told, and seen the things to
which his attention is herein directed, his
judgment is greatly at fault if it has not
informed him that the supporters of Pres
ident Grant are the ones to distrust, if
Democratic support Ls to be assigned as a
reason for want of confidence. All the
men who denounce Governor Warmoth at
present were cheek by jowl with the Demo
crats last winter, and they would be in the
same position to-day if it was not that they
are playing possum to catch such men as
Mr. Harralsou in their trap.
The double-barreled organ of the de
mocracy has raised a muss that we shall
take large interest in seeing settled secum
dem artem, or, as the natives say, "accord
ing to Gunter." Mr. Brice has been
elected a delegate to the convention from
Jefferson parish, and General Daridson
from the parish of Livingston. The Bee
says these gentlemen must be denied seats
in the convention; the first because he has
been connected with certain measures that
were passed by the Legislature two years
ago, and the latter because he aided with
the friends of Governor Wannoth in main
taining the integrity of the Last Legisla
ture. It becomes a question whether the
Bee is the Democratic party, or whether
the Democratic voters of Jefferson and
Livingston parishes are capable of de
ciding for themselves who are Democrats
and who shall represent them in ^Demo
cratic convention. Perhaps there is a
faction in the opposition camp that will
attempt to override the party, as Messrs.
Casey and Packard have attempted to
rough it over us.
Delegates from the country parishes to
the Democratic State Convention, which
will assemble here to-morrow, are rapidly
arriving, and the question of immediate
nominatioas or postponement is eagerly
canvassed, pro and con. The impression
prevails that the convention will wisely
determine to delay, many of the leaders
deeming the call and decisive committal
of the party thereunder entirely too pre
cipitate. On the other hand, there are
ardent aspirants for official honors who
think the ticket should be made up and
the campaign opened at once.
Senator Blackman and Representative
Moncure are delegates, the former being
the principal rival of J. B. Eustis, Esq.,
for Governor. Our former confrere, Mr.
Napier Bartlett, is also a delegate from the
land of Claiborne.
The Republican State Committee In
Pennsylvania has imitated Marshal Pack
ard's committee in Louisiana, to the great
disgust of the the Republicans of that
State. Instead of allowing the people at
large to elect the delegates to the Repub
lican National Convention, the State Cen
tral Committee has usurped that right it
self, and the Press says it has selected a
delegation that does not represent the
party and is a disgrace to the Republicans
of the State. Mr. Packard, when his
convention dwindled down to a corporal's
guard by the withdrawal of the regular
delegates, usurped the right to appoint
members to fill the vacancies. Bad les
sons are easily learned.
Lieutenant Governor Pinchback yester
day took his guest, Mr. Frederick Doug
lass, and several other gentlemen, for an
excursion on the river, giving them an ex
cellent opportunity to view the front of
the city and to inspect the national ceme
tery at Chalmette. The trip was greatly
enjoyed by all.
There is a general backing out of every
body from the "Defensive Association" since
the designs of the movers in that league of
disaffection were exposed in the Repub
lican. The Bee says it means to commit
no violence. The Picayune never had a
thought of resisting the enforcement of
the law. And even the low-browed ruffians
who had never paid any taxes except such
as was settled at the lunch table of a
whisky shop, have become the rneekes
followers of the Quaker faith. The sensible
people of New Orleans can not be misled
in'o paying an army of bummers in order
to escape the discharge of their lawful
duty. __
The Citizens 1 Guard is rather nervous
about the reception some of the speakers
met with at the meeting on Lafayette
square. As it fathered and fostered just
such disturbances in January in its at
tempt to overthrow the Legislature and
destroy the State government, it must
needs expect to reap the crop it planted.
The mob it fed then with murderous sug
gestions against the authorities has re
turned to plague its own friends. " They
who sow the wind shall reap the whirl
If the Democracy intend to excommu
nicate General T. G. Davidson for voting
with the friends of Governor 'Wannoth,
what action does it propose to take con
cerning Mr. Blackman and liis allies who
acted with the Customhouse clique ? If it
was wrong to remain in the Legislature
with one set of Republicans, was it not
equally wrong to stay out doors with
another body of the same party ?
The delegates to the National Colored
Convention have pretty generally departed
homeward. They were hospitably and
generously treated by our colored fellow
citizens, and are favorably impressed with
New Orleans, whether their labors here
result in much practical good to their race
or not.
The Agricultural Fair.
At the approaching fair machine agents
will have over two hundred specimens of
their art to dispute for the awards. Sioves
will also be placed on exhibition, bat, as
we are informed, will not compete for the

other branches of the arts will be placed
largely on exhibition, and busy preparation
is now going on to place everything in
readiness for the occasion. Letters are re

establish that the next fair will at least be
equal to any of those which have previons
