"Nay, verily, I shouted not!" quoth I, "my speech is mild; But thine-I grieve to say it-with falselyHxl is defiled. Thee ought to be adm6nished to rid thy heart of guile." "Bee here! my lively moke," said he, "you sling on too much style I" "I've had these plain drab garments twenty years and more," said I "And when thee says I 'sling on style,' thee tells a willful lie!" At that he pranced around as if "a bee were in his bonnet," And with hostile demonstrations, 4nquired if I was "on It1" "On what? Till thee explains thyself, I can not tell," I said. He swore that something was "too thin;" moreover it was "played I" But all his jargon was surpassed, In wild ab surdity, By threats, profanely emphasized, "to put a head on" me! "No son of Bellal," I said, "that miracle can do!"

ITHE RETfURWIl BOARD, INDICTMENTS The Wonderful Stories Afloat ';i Wash InlCton Circles. [(inoinnsti Bnquirer.] Hayes still endeavors to impress the oorrespondents of the hurdy-gurdles with the idea that he is not at all con cerned about the indictments of the Louisiana Rdturping Board, and that he has spoken to no one on the subject of their escape from prosecution. To offset this alleged fact, it is positively known that Pitkin had not been in Washington over two hours on Sunday morning last before he received a mes sage from the White House inviting him to call and see the President. Pitkin declined the invitation, and has not gone near the President, nor will he. He left here to-night for New Orleans, and proposes to take a hand in vigor ously pressing the prosecutions. The latest advices received from New Orleans are to the effect that the prosecutions are to go on to the end, and it may be safely assumed that the secret history of the manipulations of the electoral vote of Louisiana will be brought to light. Although the two colored members of the board have been included in the suit, it is well un derstood that there is no desirb to punish them for wrongs in which they were no more than passive accomplices, and it is thought an opportunity may be offered them to turn State's evidence. When the evidence that the Electoral Commission would not receive is given to the world, it will- inevitably produce a sensation. It is very likel. that, as has been stated, proof that Tilden car ried Louisiana will not invalidate the title of President Hayes. This is the legal aspect of the case; but it is the moral features that cause apprehension just now to close friends of the Presi dent. There have been various rumors cir culating of late in regard to the man ner in which the Presidential Electors of Louisiana cast theif vote. Judge Levissee, it has been charged, did not sign the certificate. He denies this re port. It was, however, asserted to-day most positively, by one who claims to *be familiar with the whole proceedings, that two of the Electors voted blank on that occasion, and that their names were forged. He says that Packard was acquainted with this fact, and that H. Conquest Clarke, Private Secretary of Kellogg, will have to testify to it under oath. He declines to gve the two names, but predicts that the fact will be developed in the present rosecution. In reference to the al ged proceedings against Sherman and others of the visiting statesmen, it is asserted that when the Supervisor of Registration for the parish ot East Fell ciana was asked about the amount of bulldozing done by the Democrats he replied that he did not believe over ffty or seventy-five negroes had been intimi dated in the whole parish. To be on the safe side, the Republican authori ties fixed the number at eighty, and this the supervisor signed. When he next saw the paper he observed that the number had bean raised to 1800, and it is claimed there are parties ready to testify that Sherman was a knowing witness of this forgery. The universal hand attachment is adjustid to all kinds of sewing machines, without any ohabge In the machuin. C.ll &ud ezamieit. 6 Qhartrbe atreet. . THE COUNTRY PRESS. Iberville certainly has a model police jury. The South publishes the proceed Ings of the June meeting, by which t appears that the offices of constable and parish treasurer were abolished, the sheriff doing duty for the former at a salary, and the clerk being also the treasurer receiving a small salary (no fees) for performing the duties of both offices. The criminal fund puzzle was unraveled and one blow out the gordian knot in which the receipts of all parishes are tied up and nothing left for school, road or any other purposes of improvement. In Iberville no officer receives fees. The sheriff, clerk of the court, all the jus tices and constables receive small sal aries, and no matter how many cases are tried the compensation is not in creased. The sheriff receives six hun dred and the clerk four hundred dollars, the justices average forty dollars and the constables about sixty-five dollars per annum. The sheriff receives also three bits per diem for boarding each prisoner.-[Baton Rouge Advocate. It has been the special desire of the largest part of the intelligent and prop erty holding classes of this State for a Constitutional Convention. This desire was a silent factor in the ladt campaign and a great incentive to the energy and activity which conducted it to a success ful issue. The defects of the present constitution, framed under the auspices of carpet-bagism and the most illiterate element of the State, may be satisfac tory to some of our people, but it can never satisfy the bulk of them. It is, in fact, not the constitution of the peoole of the State, because at the time more than fifteen thousand of the best citizens of the State were disfranchized by virtue of what the Federal government termed a rebellion. Whatever may be the vir tues of the constitution of.1868, if they are of the most brilliant qualities this fact alone in the minds of all fair minded men should of itself alone de mand that the entire voice of the people of the State should be consulted in the formation of a constitution or funda mental law. If we desire the memories of the revolution to be obliterated from our future history, we should remove all sneering indidental allusion to the fact from the fundamental law of the land. It is a stain upon the memory of our dead as well as upon our honored living, who will in time be numbered with the dead to allow the sniveling and satiri cal blot to remain engrafted in the con stitution of the State.-[Mansfield Re porter. The effect of white labor is seen to ex cellent advantage in the size of the cotton crops of late years. Some ne grophilists have argued that the negro works better in a state of freedom than in a state of slavery, and, in confirma tion of this theory, point to the fact that there is not only no diminution, but an actual increase in the amount of cotton produced now over that produced when slavery flourished. Even the least observant who should go through the large plan tations in the far Southern States, and observe the efficient labor of the men and the almost total abstinence from labor of the women who are fond of playing "the white lady," would soon discover that there is something wrong in the induction of those who reason in this manner. Let any ordi nary planter take the statistics of his plantation now and compare them with slavery times, when the same number of hands were at work, and he will soon see how much less cotton is produced by free negroes than by the same peo pie when they were in a state of slavery. The trth is that the increase in the production of cotton is caused by white labor. The war left the white peopl of the South in a state of almost abject poverty. They had to betake them selves to labor or starve. Those who had land worked it with their own hands. Thousands of little farms throughout the uplands, which had never before received a cotton seed, were planted in cotton, their owners being stimulated thereto by the high price of cotton which they obtained immediately after the war. Each small farmer raised his one, five or ten bales, as the case may be. Hence it is that while the amount of cotton raised on the large plantations was diminished, the general crop was augmented by the increase of acreage in the hands of small proprie tors.-[Shreveport Times. The bayous and bays in the rear of Pointe-a-la-Hache, until quite recently, teemed with the finest red and other salt-water fish in the most profuse abundance; but since the advent of gangs of Spanish fishermen from St. Bernard, who use immense seines and capture vast quantities of fish therein, our fishing grounds offer no attraction to citizens who are permanent residents here, and who fish in.the ordinary man ner with hook and line for their own consumption. Most of our fellow-citi zens love to fish and find it both pleasant and profitable, and some of them fish exclusively for a living, and think it very hard and unjust that strangers should be allowed to come here and by a somewhat unfair, murderous and exhaustive process strip and rob our bayous and bays of their scaly wealth, which rightfully belongs to the citizens who live in its immediate vicinity, and who only, capture it in a manner that leaves it always abundant andvirtually intact, whilst the strangers referred to, with seines of immense ca pacity, throw away, waste and kill half they capture to enhance the 'ylue of the remainder, which they sell at exor bitant prices along the coast, for money which they spend in another pariash; thus not only robbing us of our prop erty, but depleting the country of the cash it so sorely needs. We trust our police jury will attend to this matter, avohg fulljurisdiction in the premises, and make these Spaniards, who are depredating on our property and privi leges, pay a license which will be tanta mount to a prohibition.--[Plaquemines Observer. Farmers throughout this parish are awakening to the fact thatsheep raising is one of the most profitable branches of their business. But many are de terred from embarking in it, because of the swarms of worthless curs that roam at will over the parish and frequently destroy sheep. Within this week some of our most enlightened and en ergetic farmers have 'told us that they would turn their attention to sheep raising on a more extensive scale were it not for this pest. As it is, they say, it is impossible to protect the sheep from dogs. Searcely a week passes but we have complaints of sheep being killed by dogs. Will not our farmers take this matter into their own hands, and, if th law will not protect them, find s~o to rotect themselves? I Till th fourths of the ours are exter munated, and the other fourth taught. that they must not molest sheep, the farmer cannot safely invest his capital in this most profitable and pleasant of all the branches of his business. Instead of our Legislature enacting laws for the protection of dogs, it should impose a heavy tax on them afl, except sheep and stock dogs, and make it the duty, under penalty of all officers of the law to destroy those on which the tax is not paid. It is full time that some action be taken in this matter. The hill parishes of North Louisiana are well adapted to sheep, which could be made the source of immense wealth were their owners secure against the depredations of dogs. But so long as this destroying canine army is left un molested to prey upon the sheep, so long will this mine of wealth remain undeveloped.-[Columbia Herald. SGeorgia Is to have a constitutional convention and a constitution framed in the interests and for the protection of her people. That is what Louisiana very much needs.-[New Orleans DxmocarrT. The idea of such a convention for this State is one which is rapidly taking po8 session of the public mind. The great marvel is, that the question of holding such a convention has not before this assumed greater significance than it has, and particularly in the public utter ances of the press. Even the New Orleans DEMOCRAT, which is always able and outspoken, and leads rather than falls in with the current of opin ing, while advocating the measure, touches the subject apparently in a gingerly way. But it need indulge in no misgivings; the ground it breaks is patriotic ground. A constitutional con vention in this State has become a para mount necessity, and the public are awakening to the fact. On all sides complaints are heard which, without raising it, go to the very marrow of this question. It is said, for example, that while the Legislature has cut down the salaries and perquisites of the ininor offices, the greater ones have been left untouched. People inquire as to the origin of this discrimination, and ask is this the idea iniplied by reform ? And when they are told that this is a matter beyond the power or competence of the Legislature, but is one of those things that can only be reached by the people in convention, they ask why such convention is not called. And these people, representing the tar-pa)ing class, mean just what they say. They are determined the burdens of government shall be lightened. Another class, and by far the more thoughtful, casting aside the economic, take a broader and more catholic view of the question. They see in the un bridled power and license of the Legis lature the parent source of all-our past troubles. As long as the present Legis lature continues to exist they feel safe because of their confidence in the integ rity and conservatism of a majority of this body. But they are sensible this is a reliance it will not always do to de pend on. Another election might place | them under the iron heel of such a Leg I slature as that from which they have just escaped, which they feel would be far worse to them than moral death. These people feel that it will never do to entrust their liberties to the law making power any further than may be absolutely ! necessary for purposes of public order and the common good. They saw with their own eyes Legisla ture after Legislature crushihg out the most vital rights of the citizen, and they saw subservient courts carryihg out the behests of these corrupt and irrespon sible bodies. They are heartily tired of license, and demand that the law-mak ing power be placed under increased subjection and control. And this re straining authority they know can only be had through a convention by a mod iflcation of the organic law more clear ly defining and narrowing legislative power. Tim press may remain silent, but these ideaa are quietly germinating in the popular mind, and will soon find utter ance. Certainly there is a feeling of strong anxiety among thinking men with regard to the future. They see possibilities and embatraisments ahead, much like the troubles from which we have only so recently been delivered, and they feel it a duty to provide against their possible repetition as far as human foresight can do so. In this patriotic work we are willing to join hands with them. We believe that the remedy, if it exists anywhere, is to be found in a convention of the people. We say, then, let "us imitate the example of Georgia, the most conservative and progressive of Southern States, and .frame a consti tution "in the interests and for the pro tection of the people." By all means let us have the convention.-[Nlansfield Bulletin. Our prediction, often made, months and years ago, that as soon as our polit ical troubles were settled, Louisiana would receive her full share of immigra tion, and thus be permanently redeemed from political and financial ruin, is about being verified. Almost every mail brings us letters of inqury from persons in distant countries who desire to come to Louisiana to locate, and we shall hereafter always answer such epis tles, either privately or through the columns of our paper for the informa tion of all. As samples, before us lie two letters of this class, to which we now reply. Just such men as our first correspond ent are in demand on almost every sugar plantation in the State. A mechanic who can thus make himself generally useful would always be given the prefer ence. He could make a small crop, also, under the advice of the planter, on shares, and, by industry and economy, soon acquire means enough to purchase a small place of his own. Take our ad vice-come to Louisiana without delay, apply to any large and intelligent planter, and you will secure just what you want. Price of cane in the field varies ac cording to proximity to the sugar-mill. Small cultivators, having no sugar houses, can always readily sell their crops to the nearest sugar planter at from $40 to $75 an acre, according to "stand" of the crop. However, a new and more just system of purchasing cane is being introduced by the ton. As some large planters, having idle en closed lands, are giving the use of the same and furnishing houses to tenants, who raise cane for them at $3 per ton. we presume it should be worth $4 per ton when grown elsewhere. Here is a great field for agriculturists, for the tendency now is to make sugar manu facture and cane culture distinct. Wages usually paid in the sugar mak ing season is $1 per day and fifty cents a watch-or one-half of the night. All hands are expected to work eighteen hours a day during the "rolling" or sugar making season. When the immi grant arrives, however, we would advise that he seek to work on shares or on the tenant system instead of by the month. Few planters are properly sit uated to hire by the month, and the other tnode of working is more profit able and suits the whites better. As to our correspondent's query, can a man without capital make any clear money working on sugar plantations? we again say, yes-more money than with any other crop or in any other country. A knowledge of cane Culture is easily gained;. the crop is worked much like corn, and is usually "laid by" or cultivation finished before the hottest weather, when those with mechanical knowledge, like these two gentlemen, can get work making repairs about the sugar house and the others in the woods cut ting fuel. Come on, then-come by thouaands-for we have millions of acres of the richest land in the world that awaits you, and a climate most health ful and pleasant will render your homes here all that you could wish. Colonies should organize and those who have a little means could unite and purchase large places and divide in tracts to suit. -[New Iberia Sugar Bowl. JUDICIAL ADVERTISEMENTS. AUNCTION MALFM.
