IN NUBIIBUS.
Mr. Evarts, the new Secretary of
State, has the reputation of a great
lawyer and advocate. We will not pre
sume to question the correctness of this
general judgment. Likewise he is said
to be considerable of a wit, a reputa
tion which, In the dryest and least
humorous of all professions, is cheaply
gained, and, as Sam Weller said of Lon
don muimlus, "very filling for the price."
The severe logic and servile stereoty
pism of your old lawyer are not very
favorable to the development of the
organ of "wit and humor."
In our large and very respectable
bar we have known but two of its
members who ever essayed with much
zeal and earnestness to win this very
rare reputation. Of both it is generally
conceded that their efforts in that behalf
serve to illustrate their faith in the pet
legal maxim of "stare deoeis," rather
than their ingenuity or capacity to
promote the legitimate results of such
essays.
Joe Miller has long since hived all the
donations ever made by the (reenbags
to their encyclopedia of witticisms and
puns. And when his voluminous record
is drawn upon by any aspiring humor
ists of the bar the guffaw or smile
evoked is a courteous recognition of
that compiler's fidelity and industry,
k and of the smiler's retentiveness of
memory and the evoker's accuracy of
narration and capacity for reproduction.
Not daring, however, to ask for a writ
of error to the general judgment of so
awful an authority as the bar, and con
ceding the prima faice title of Mr.
Evarts to the fame of a wit and great
lawyer, we beg leave to enter our hum
ble protest against the additional claim
set up recently for this very omnivorous
person to equal eminence as a states
man and publicist. And this protest
is fully vindicated by the perusal of
his letter of instructions to the
Presidential Commission to this State.
Not since we strove in our callow and
sophomoric days to thread the laby
rinthian sentences of Butler's Analogy,
of Jonathan Edwards on Will, of Reid
on Dreams and Brown on Mental Phe
nomena, in pursuit of the idea or mean.
ing thereof, or of Fearn's Contingent
Remainders in the desperate and Slay
phian search for the solution of the rule
in Shelly's case, or the difference be
tween a contingent remainder and an
executory devise, have we encountered
a more vexatious and sterile task than
in the effort to capture the idea or sense
of the following vaporish and verbose
sentences of Mr. Evarts' letter of in
structions to the Louisiana commis
sioners:
But it is most pertinent and important in oom.
nlg to a decision upon the precise question
Mon of executive duty before him, that the Pres
ident should know what are the real impedi
ments to regular, legal and peaceful prooedure
under the laws and constitution of the
State of Louisiana, by which the anomalies
in the government there presented may be put
in course of settlement, without involving the
element of military power, as either an agent or
a make-weight in such solution. the sucoessful
aseertainment of these impediments the
President would confidently expect would
indicate to the people of that State the
wisdom and the mode of their removal. The t
usual circumstances which attended and fol- I
lowed the State election and canvass, from its re
lation to the excited feelings and interest of the
presidential election, may have retarded within
the State of Louisiana the persuasive influences
by which the great social and material interests
common to the whole people of a State, and the
pride of the American character as a law-abiding
nation ameliorate the disappointments and dis
solve the resen ments of close and zealous polit
oal contests; but the President both hopes and
believes that the great body of the people of
C e° laisiana are now prepared to treat the unsettled
- = estes of the Stats election with a calm and con
tory spirit.
ISit be too much to expect a complete concur
rence in a single government for that State. at
least the President may anticipate a snbmiseeion
to the peaceful resources of the lawsn and the con
etitntion of the State, of alt the diesensions, at
' ane relieving themse'ves from the reproach, ancd
*..~r fellow citiz:ne of the Initod Rtatoe from thr

half or one of them at least, who is a
journalist, we set up the demurrer that,
without the employment of an interpre
ter and experts, it cannot be expected
or required of the general mass of the
speakers and writers of the English
language to penetrate through so dense
a vapor of sesquipedallanism, and bring
within ordinary and general oomprehen

of State is struggling to convey to a be

Business is better in Grant parish
than it has been for some time.
All the country parishes complain of
a lack of meat, and bacon is their only
hope and dish.
Seven prisoners are now confined in
Bossier parish jail-five whites and two
colored. The former are all charged
with capital crimes.
Some smallpox prevails at Breaux's
Bridge. St. 4Martin parish; Baton Rouge,
Lafayette, in fact all other the parishes
deny the charge of smallpox most em
phatically.
David King plead guilty of man
slaughter, in Baton Rouge parish, and
was sentenced to twenty years in the
Penitentiary. The next time he is up,
(1897,) he says he will not plead guilty.
There have been more rogues punish
ed in East Baton Rouge and Ouachita
since the installation of Democratic
judges and sheriffs in these parishes
than in the whole eight years of Radical
rule.
The fog was so dense at Colfax one
day last week that a flock of wild geese,
flying through the town, were utterly
bewildered, flew close to the ground,
and beat themselves against the chim
neys.
Since the installation of Democratic
officials in Morehouse parish and the
consequent end of cattle stealing, stock
raising has grown a popular industry in
Morehouse, and many farmers are try
ing it.
The police jury of Grant parish will
levy a tax of only 4 mills on the dollar.
This is the smallest parish tax heard of
yet. Grant deserves a compliment if it
can only stick to this 4 mill tax and not
run in debt.
Two colored prisoners escaped from
the Parish Prison of Morehouse parish
last week by cutting through the wall.
They sought refuge in the swamp, but
were caught by the Constable next day
while engaged in a game of cards, and
looked up again.U

The'election for a Mayor and Board
of Aldermen of Farmerville, Union
parish, was held Monday, March 20,
and resulted in the election of D. Arent
as Mayor, and W. R. Rutland, D. Stein,
Geo. Fenton and I. C. Lewis as Alder
men. There was no oppgsition to them.
Burch, who plays Senator in Packard's
caucus and who is very loud-mouthed
in his declarations of fealty to Packard's
cause, Monday last recognized Judge
Charles McVea, of East Baton Rouge,
as the legally elected Judge who sits
and dispenses justice by authority from
the State government of which Francis
T. Nicholls is the head. This was done
in a confession of judgment in a suit
brought by John O'Connor, Esq.,
against Burch.
The Thirteenth District Court for the
parish of Concordia, Judge Wade H.
Hough, convened last Monday.' Hon.
H. R. Steele, District Attorney was
in attendance. An effort will probably
be made to reopen the case against
David Young, Thos. Reber et ale., in
which a nolle prosequi was entered last
term by District Attorney, pro ternm.,
Austin, under instructions from Kellogg.
It is probable that, after all, Concordla
will get her school money again, and
the penitentiary a Senator.
The condition of affairs in Plaque
mines parish must be very bad indeed,
if the Observer does not exaggerate. It
declares that thieves are so numerous,
and larceny so universal that many of
the largest property holders in the par
ish have seriously proposed to raise a
vigilance committee to do what the law
seems powerless to do-bring these vil
lains to summary justice and hang a few
of them, "pour encourager les autres."

On the arsival of the Grand Republic
at Greenville last Saturday, Mr. Howe,
a clerk, and two of the porters of the
boat were arrested, to be investi
gated as to their knowledge of the dis
appearance of Mr. Tim. O'Connor, of
Greenville, who when last seen alive
was on that boat on the 23d of January
last, a passenger to Arkansas City.
After a patient and thorough investiga

were honorably discharged, there being
not the slightest evidence that they
knew anything in regard to his dis
appearance. So his fete must still re
