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(
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
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
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
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
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
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.

A Graui Mitake of bug Is lia ihelty. t
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
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.

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

Our able and highly gifted Re- k
presentative, the Hon. H. Mahoney E
is most nobly performing his duty e
to the State and to the Republican b
I party of Louisiana, in the hour of n
danger, he is found at his post ever o
ready to maintain the right and si

proud and happy to say, his whole ft
I course meets the unanimous ap- e
a proval of the people of this parish, p
who fully appreciate his eminent d
9 services and whose only embarrass- z
r ment, is how to adequately com- a
r pensate them, for no office in their h
I gift, would be a sufficient reward
a for his untiring and successful ef

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

"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

efforts to acoomplish that end."

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
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

- extended to them. We have been

e ture of Georgia-in this city, briefly,
a but forcibly, &uesribing the condi

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
