POETRY. 01 BREAD AND CHEESE AND KISSES. II One day when I came home fatigued, oa And felt inclined to grumble, Because my life was one of toil, f Because my lot was humble, I said to Kate, my darling wife, U1 In whom my whole life's bliss is, What have you got for dinner, Kate r! "Why, bread and cheese and kisses." t( ii Though warm and tired my heart leaped up As those plain words she uttered, i Why should I envy those whose bread E Than mine's more thickly buttered? h I said, "We'll have dessert at raes" "What's that !" she asked. "Why, * this is, u I kissed her. Ah, what sweeter meal b Than bread and cheese and kisses. a I gazed at her with pure delight; She nodded and smiled gaily; I said, "My love, on su h a meal c I'd dine with pleasure daily, When I but think of you, dear girl, I pity those fine misses, r Who turn their noses up and pout At bread and cheese and kisses. And when I look on your dear form, 1 And on your face so homely, ( And when I look on your dear eyes, f And on your dress so comely; And when I hold you in my arms, 1 I laugh at Fortune's misses, t I'm blest in you, content with you, t And bread and cheese and kisses. C A GRAND MAS8 MEETING 0 Governor Warmoth Endorsed A grand mass meeting of the Re publicans of Assumption parish was held on Saturday evening, the twentieth instant, at the tenth ward. There was an immense gathering present, and Warmoth Hall was filled to overflowing. On motion of Thomas Divine, Esq., the meeting was called to or der, and Mr. A. J. Echeverria was unanimously chosen president, with 1 the following list of vice presidents: Anthony Tunson, S. C. Mollere, John W. Hickman, A. N. Sanchez, Joseph Thompson, F. G. Offutt, r Julien McCormick, A. Plasensia, Gustave Steven, John Lane. Secretary-Thomas Divine. The president made a few intro ductory remarks, stating the object of the meeting; gave the Custom house clique a terrible scathing, and r bade his hearers work harmoniously I together and victory would certain ly perch upon our banners. The president then introduced as the first speaker Mr. Thomas Di vine: The Speaker's address was ex ceedingly appropriate, and enlisted the earnest attention of the im mense audience to its close. He gave his hearers a true history of the troubles that have lately existed in the City of New Orleans, caused by George W. Carter and a few Re publicans, aided by a lot of broken down Democratic politicians. Mr. Divine alluded to the record of Governor Warmoth, and also to the past history of Rev. George W. Carter. He told how Carter had disguised himself under the cloak of Republicanism and squeezed -himself into the Republican party, and is now, and has always been, -trying to disrupt the Republican party. Mr. Divine spoke of the necessi Sty of a thorough organization and union of the Republican party, and admxonish themi to be mindful of their duties as good citizens, to sup Sport and stick by the State govern Sment, and denounce any and all at Itempts at revolution. IAt the close of Mr. Divine's speech the assemblage rose en maise and gave the Speaker three rousing cheers. Short and spirited addresses were also made by, Mr. Anthony Tenson, Gustave Steven, S. C. Mollere and Joseph Thompson, all C indoring Governor Warmoth and a the State Administration. The following resolutions were - then presented by Mr. Thomas Divine to the assemblage, and una nimously adopted: W~zUass, The election by the State Sen.. ate of the Hon. P. B. S. Pinchback to the position of Lieutenant Governor has given another proof of the integrity and strength of the Republican party, and of the de termination of his Excellency Governor H. C. Warmoth and his co-workers to pro tect the political interests of all cladses composing said party; and d Whereas, The action of the Customhouse faction in forming an alliance with the Do mocratic Senators, thereby relinquishing the claims of the colored people to repreo sentation, thus disregarding one of the t most important principles that has here- t tofore bound us together, and disregard- r ing party principles; therefore, be it Resolved, That the thanks of this meet ing are hereby tendered to his Excellency H. C. Warmoth, and to the Senators who t have, by their votes silenced forever the li slanderous combinations heretofore re- q feared to, and we hereby pledge ourselves, e individually and collectively, to stand by him in all efforts to maintain the integrity and unity of the Republican party. P Resolved, That in Lieutenant Governor b P. B. S. Pinchback we recognize a talented, g courageous and competent leader of the Republican party, and a true friend and P unlinching advocate of the rights of the race to which he belongs. Resolved, That the thanks of this meet- r ing are hereby tendered to our Represen- I tatives, Hon. HL L Swords and Hon. Geo. Washington, who, by their actions in the General Assembly, have helped to save us from political defeat Resolved, That we denounce Senator Patrick OpHara, and charge him as being malicious, destructive, desperate, nuwar rentable and unpatriotic in his efforts for coalescing with the Democrats in order to destroy the Republican party. Resolved, That we deprecate and disown r any and all attempts to create discord and e dissensions in our ranks, and all persons attempting to create such discord will be regarded as bolters, and not recognized as Republicans by the Republican party of Assumption. a The following resolutions were a s then introduced by Mr. .Joseph C e Thompson, and unanimously adopt- r ed: g Waxzais, In the late attempt made by t 6 the Customhouse faction, under the lead f of George W. Carter, to subvert the gov 3, ernment of the State, and ostracize the administration thereof by an affiliation and combination with the old rebel Demo- t cracy, with intent to destroy the Repub- t 6 lican party and turn over the State to Democratic rule, the Hon. H. L. Swords, one of our Senators, and the Hon. George Washington, our Representative, did stand faithfully and firmiy by the administration and the great Republican party through- t out the terrible struggle with the Custom- t house revolutionists, and have nobly done all in their power to preserve the honor and dignity of the State during the trying ordeal; and Whereas, the Hon. P. O'Hara, also elected to the Senate from our district, d false to the pledges he made to us when ly selected to fill that responsible position, has deserted the administration and the Republican party, and joined with the Customhouse faction and rebel Democrats to subvert and destroy the established 1- goverment, and revolutionize the same for the purpose of destroying the Repub lican party and giving the State into the d hands of the Democrats ; therefore, be it Resolved, That we heartily indorse and1 approve of the conduct of the Hon. H. L. re Swords, Senator, and Hon. George Wash i0 ington, Representative ; and be it further , Resolved, That it is with renewed con fidence we trust our welfare and the wel fare of the Republican party in their hands, feeling well assured that no truer men to the interests of the people and the party r. can be found in this State. Df Resolved, That we cordially approve of e the course pursued by his Excellency H. C. Warmoth, our Governor, in putting down the revolutionary proceedings of the Customhouse faction, and we hereby Lkpledge to him our sincere devotion and ~3and our constant and earnest support. Resolved, That thes conduct of Senator P. O Hara in uniting with the Custom house revolutionists, and acting in concert Swith them, is such as to forfeit all con fidence in hin; and be it further ,i- Resolved, That inasmuch as he has vio dlated every pledge and principle upon dwhich he was elected, and is no longer carrying out the wishes of his constituent., he do immediately resign his seat in the P- Senate. a- Resolved, That a copy of these resoln .- tions be transmitted to His Excellency H. C. Warmoth, Hon. H. L Swords, Hon. George Washington, and that they be published in the New Orleans Reps~icesn dand Lorzswuai. ag After the adoption of the resolu tions the vast assemblage arose en es masse and gave three loud and 17 hearty cheers for Governor War 0. moth, Senator Swords, Hon. George all Washington, the several speakers, id and loud hisses were given for Sen ator O'Hars. ce In the evenng a grand ball was a given at Warmoth Hal, and the a-morning of the twenty-first was far upnisway ere tefestivities of the twentieth were brought to a mn close. he A.

A Graui Mitake of bug Is lia ihelty. t at One of the most serious and ri- w dioulous delusions under which some if young men labor, who cultivate the C! society of ladiep, is the impression 0 that the fair ones prefer to be all t the time laughing during the hours they pass in gentlemen's company. A Their manner of condueting conver- lS sation shows that these gallants con- S( sider everything the stupedest bore I1 to their Dulciness but jokes, white Ji lies and idle teasing, and conee- o quently they grin themselves and b endeavor to keep the ladies con- T vulsed from the moment they sim. h per, "how-d'ye do, Miss Mary Jane?" e' to the crowing of ten o'clock by.the ir sleepy chanticleer. If a stenogra- ti pher could stand behind the curtain e and take down an hour of this wit froth, what a mess it would be to i read! Such puns-such "stories" to C keep the conversation agoing--such 0 bare flattery to make the fair ones 0 blush and flutter-such a misuse of b language-it would be laughable if d it were not so hard on the poor J girls who must gabble with the C geese and be foolish with the fool. ji A greater mistake was never made s by these young men, who, we know, g really mean to be agreeable. Ladies a enjoy a certain degree of pleasentry b and badinage as the spice to social a intercourse; but they do not like iv that conversation which is all non- r sense and levity. By nature most seriously inclined than men, their t choice is the conversation which is s made up mostly of sober sense. a Hence it is they are so often heard v to complain that this visitor "is too d foolish," or that one "such a great t flatterer," and praise in correspond- c high terms the visitor who pleases F their self-respect by leading to t themes better suited to their tastes and education. The man always r stands highest in the esteem of la- j dies who talks to them as if he did L not consider them so many children to be amused with the jews-harps and doll-babies of thought, and makes fun and merriment at the exception instead of the rule. The habit we allude to is notice- i able often in places of public amuse- t ment. Hardly do they get seated I ' before this class of betux commence c their everlasting nonsense, turning r to levity everything on God's green c earth, and rarely giving their un happy companions "a flash of blessed c silence" even when the music sounds I or the programme culminates. Do they think it a breach of etiquette e I to be sometimes silent? Are they r afraid of being called bashful if they I - do not chatter through the play ! r When they learn that their female I friends don't want to be laughing I all the time, but yearn for a sober face at least once a year, their I r chances for preferment will improve, and the poor girls themselves will a bless their stars for the discovery! 4 g There are butterflies, of course, who Bare never so happy as when silly. I T Our remarks apply to the ladies Sgenerally. Be pleasant, young gentlemen; a -have your hearty laughs; ease the e sweet creatures about marrying I (they like a little of that;) but don't be monkeys. Fun is healthy, but Sthere isso muchof it in the world r that is empty, the jaws ache with '. the continual exercise. Be like a Sgood hotel- change your diet. Moonshine and ailly-bub will ruin any table in the world--culinary or Scolloquial.-CoiumbuB lnder. " JUDGB AKIlk'S ADBIESS Y TIE ClAND SUIT. nJudge Allell addressed, this morn ing, the Grand Jury. He stated that since the last meeting stirring ' events had occurred, but as the '~questions were between the mem bers of one branch of the Govern ment and another, the Grand Jury Lehad no control over them, unless ~rthe parties committed some breach f of the criminal statutes. a Judge Abell said that he had con sulted the laws, and as matters stood, they were to be deplored by the whole 8tate; but inasmuch as1 there was no violation of any penal at statute, he would leave the matter he with the Grand Jury. Nevertheless, tr if any breach of the law had been w] committed to the knowledge of the ar Grand Jury, it was their duty to ae take cognizance of it. aq It has been stated, added Judge C: Abell, in the Republican of Sunday M last, that Hon. Thos. Green David- < son had been met upon by ruffans. to If so, it is the duty of the Grand bc Jury to ascertain the facts, to ferret re oat the offenders, and bring them before the bar of the criminal court. m The time has come when it is to be vi hoped that every good citizen of t every party and condition would raise his voice and use his influence ea to suppress, personal violence in el, every respect. on Judge Abell made some remarks in reference to the case of Joel G Cannon, charged with the murder of Martin Bush on the 26th of Do camber last. The Judge said he had been asked by the counsel for the defendant to charge the Grand i Jury as to the character and suffi ciency of evidence required. The jury were the sole judges of the al sufficiency of the evidence. The f general rule is that all witnesses ti who saw the deed committed should li be called before the Grand Jury, or ei at least a sufficient number to sat- p isfy them that they had ft reached the true state of the case. n, If, after hearing the witnesses, ti the Grand Jury were reasonably g satisfied that a homicide had been p committed, and that the accused rV was the party offending, it was their IN duty to indict him; but in all cases p they should be reasonably satisfied E of the guilt of the accused before it placing him before *petit jury of o the country. ui The Grand Jury retired and had a made no report when the court ad- o journed.-Evening Picayune,, Jan- h I uary 26th.

SUnblushing Mendacity. 7 The political adventurer who airs * his crude ideas and exhibits his al ib most inconceivable ignorance in the columns of The Baton Bouge Grand 5- Era has achieved a disgraceful !5 notoriety throughout the State as a 7y gratuitous falsiler, yet in his loftiest 't flights of falsehood he never before attained the sublimeeminence which he has reached in the following ex tract. The brazen coolness with which he assumes for the revolution- T ary Carterites the honor of repealing T certain obnoxious laws would freeze F aquafortia under the Tropic of Cancer.. Listen to the bray qf this Munchausen ass: "The members of the House refuse to give their countenance to the bogus speaker, Brewster, and have to resolved not to submit to any in authority except that of Speaker George W. Carter. The conflict may be considered ended, and the victory ours. Might has given way to right, and Warmoth's bluff game 1A has been defeated Once more we shall have an opportnnity of rigt a eons legislatiou. The a probnouu a election, registration, printing and Wl constabulary laws have been re pealed; the force of public opinion has compelled the action, and The Grand Era is entitled to some re spect for its steady and continuous efforts to acoomplish that end." [lbervi~le News. 21 WARMOTH'S CONDUCT. - b Few men could have met the on- S slaught of traitors with the same - firmness which has characterized ' the conduct of Governor Warmoth. A In his fight against the common enemy leagued with traitors to the party, he has conducted himself in a firm, unfinobing manner, and has never over-stepped the constitu tional limits or exceeded the prero- e gatives of his office. Carter, his op- S ponent, with his characteristic recklessness, has arrogated to him self and destroyed for a time the A powers vested in the Legislature. He opposes the House because it sees fit to change its executive oflosr, and because it could not lie intimidated to act according to his will, he carries off his admirers to > coffeehouse and opens a State Legis lative grog-shop on his own account. After vain attempts to carry the , protection of legality, he tries to b conciliate his Excellency by asking C to be peaceably admitted into the legal assembly. If his be the true p House, why then does he seek to q enter into the bogus one, called so s1 by him. Certainly he makes a false Q move, and concedes the fact that the , one presided over by Speaker Brew- 1 ster is the legal branch of the State Legislature. Governor Warmoth for his zeal and fidelity to the inter- 3 ests of peace and order, and the principles of the. Republican party deserves the thanks of all good citi zens. He is the man for any and all emergencies.-Shreveport Repub lican. irpablesicu in Gergia. Things wear a most gloomy as pect for Republicans in Georgia, nine-tenths of whom are colored men. They seem to be left entirely 1 to the mercy of the rebel Democracy r by the Government-at any rate no Sprotection is offorded them from F any quarter, aM no security of 6 political rights nor to life itself is - extended to them. We have been - shown a letter from one of the best informed and most intelligent col ,ored men in that State to his friend y -a former member of the Legisla e ture of Georgia-in this city, briefly, a but forcibly, &uesribing the condi a tion of affairs there. The Legisla I, ture, heusays, is red hol Democratic -by two-thirds majority, and pre a pared for any measures necessary to secure their ends, as they proved eby authorizing an election of Gov ,ernor tofila vasancy that did not .. exist, or that had already been fIfled, n and therefore in violation of the ll constitution. That instrument pro ,. ides that when a vacancy oceurs in the office of Governor, as one did when Governor Bullock resigned, the President of the Senate should, er-officio, serve out the unexpired ra term. Hon. E. Conly, Presadent of 1- the Senate at the time, had taken to the oath of office as Governor for id the unexpired, and was eonstitu ml tionally the Governor oS the State a for the time for which Bullock was at elected.
