The ltelzebub that sat high upon his thloni

while in the minlsLors about him we ricognised
eouutenances that told too plaat;ly the theme of
the satirical god.
DOerTO entring upon rte manore uuev5ar ui e
representlatou, it may be of interest to the read
or to learn somtthing of the gentral design. as
well as the sourco from which it wrsa drawno. I)e
monohkgy plays a prominent part iu all the old
religions of the East. More ancient in India than
the Vodar, it hase maintained itself alike in Brah
mlhiam, tudubism and lalamism. It is also
found along ail the nations of Northern Europe,
and traces of it are founl ov. in among the Chris
ilans. Ililtatn and Goelthe, in Paradise Lost and
Faust, avaiied tihiuvolves of its weird and fan
tastk legItnud. Iudred, it is only within a very
lbw yeat, tih t dcnunology has ceased to com
mand th, flith of tuen of education and Intellect.
taainlt old far on, hho wrote in the beginning
of ithou vcut ,thll century, has letf a long dis
quisitoln upon the nature ant power of demons,
in which he esa s in all serioneness, "flow far the
power 'f rp,rits an·d devils otli extend is a se
rious quletur, iaid worthy to LC considered "
But he was ntt the last solemn but learned an.
thority upon this queer superetition. Almost
within our own day witches wore burned in pious
and godly New England for being possessed of
these evil sprits. Indeed, the epiri!ualism of
the prest: it day i .scarcely anything more than
a species of demonology.

THIRD OAB.
Grand Counhselors.
This ear was an immense lurnace, on which
Moloch.
Prince of the realm of Tears, who assumed the
genial countenance of that scientifio sinner, that
venerable and Jocund iniquity,
bimon Cameron,
By his side stood, distinguishable by his insig
nia and those wonderful "saaelege,"
Leviathan,
LIrd Admiral and Knight of the Fly, impersor
sting that jolly old tar, him who bath witched
the world with noble seamanship,
Geo. A. .obeson.
In this group also stool the warlike
latnl,
Commander-in.-Chiel of the Infernal Armies,
assuming, of course, the general feature andl
the eye that threatens and commands, apper
taining to one
Tecumnela ~lermau,
brother of J. kn, a train-band captain, and other
wise a citizen if credit and renown. In front (ot
them all stood
Chamos,
Grand Onamberlain and demon of Flattery. We
did not exactly see the point of the satire which
made this mise impersonate that curled and per
funmed da.ling of the honeehold,
Master Freddy Girant,
by the grace of his pa, Lieutenant Colonel o: the
staff, banker sed broker. Yet there Freddy
stood, his identity in no wise hid by tile impish
ooatume of lis impersonator.

SFIFIll CAR.
Cuonidential Nterelary.
Upon this car was to be been a:l the apparatus
belonging to a tirst class distillery, vats, worms,
fttunels and casks of the "crooked." The pre
siding genius was
laelberlth,
Master of the Alliances, Grand oSecrtary and
Keeper of toe Archives of Hell. What use Bald
berith had for these queer nttnslls it would have
been hard to imagine, in the light of other days
than these. Their nse and appropriateness toa
scribe has been but recently developed by that
original genius,
Setn. 0, 5. Babcock,
a gentleman who has proven beyond cavil that he
knows "vat's vat.". Uaelb rith, with a genIih
manly respect for genius in adapting heni, ar
sumed the semblance of the o lginal adapter of
these novel convenicnces.

with the expulsion of Solomon from his empire.

Fr.,l. IR. Wright, Packard's tax col
lector for T.rrc:bonue, is trying the
samnet boll gamno that Packard tried
here ittd faihled on so d(isastrously. The
l~ulp lhas been :'ing for money;
money it, mins get oir it is lost, and
Wright hls IOten prnr)noising to provide
this. (n }ritday morninig he notilied all
Ihe merc.hanlts onf ]I:.inu a, ill that par
isi, that they would have t) pay their
licenses over to himu, and threatened
that if they did not do this in ,a very
short tiuim, hu woulId shut up all their
stores.
The imerchant., of Ilootmna have been
unnecesa.rily worried at, this threat,
anti want to know if it is not a breach
or the stat,.s quo ; whether they can be
compelled by a tax corllc'tor or an;.ybody
else to recogn.z tlie Packard govern
tment and jisi.r, it with money against
the true government of the u State.
There need he no fear. It
is not in Terrehonne alone that this
trick has been tried. The Radical tax
collector of Lafourche tried idenaically
the same game there, and proposed to
shut up and sell out all the merebants
who refused to pay their licenses over
to him. When the appointed titae carne
around, not a single merchant l;pa, and
not a single store was closed..
The action of these tax collectors
are but imitations of Packard's cele
brated proclamation, and etLually worth
less and Ineffectual. They desberve no
attention, still less any fear.
Yesterday was the beginning of a new
era in life of our friend, Mr. John B.
Wisendorff and her whom he made his
wife, Miss Muggie S. Bealle. Rev. John
Mathews. of the Carondelet M. E.
Church, offlciated, and as by authority
he gave the blessings of God, so by ex
tension we tender our best wishes of
haupiness and whatever blessings &in
fuil man can giv!.
