-~QOl A AND BuR SISTER STATiE.
ddtor of Dsmocrat-While I fully and _ly concur in the adrniration expressed bi our correspondent, W. M. B. for the le of Georgia, I regret to ee him sepa her from her Southern sisters, and ng his comntenance to the stale slanders the Yankee against the latter. I think he in both his inference and his fact. What eant by the following sentence: "It has suffered from abstractions, never been iby partisans, and has always adopted omen of opinion or indlustry adapted to roart objectw of liberty and popular pros toity." What abstractions ? Di(os he mean ill great princi les of liberty, which OIce lay at the foundation of the . stitution of the [Unitel Statres? If so, I link that (Georgia has had her ftMl share of sffering from abstractionls, and cannot doubt t her sons would regard as an insult the lnputation that she hali evadued or shirked it hi any degre. whatever. Abstractions are -erely general propositions derived from a ride and extended field of observation and prporience, and tested under a great variety of circumstances. The law of gravity is an bs traction. All men are and must bhe gov aed by them' and, if they are not comacious of that fact with regard to the highest, it is only because they have not the intelligence to pomprehend them. Wherein have the sys ters of opinion or industry adopted by the people of the South been unadapted "to the great objects of liberty and popular pros perity?" Let him inform us that we may at .leo change such opinions and remove the obtructions to our prosperity. "Georgia has never submitted to the in 1u1seh1es of her more renowned sisters of Carolina and Virginia." If it is meant that she has done so less than the other Southern States, we must take dis tinct issue. She has long and steadily been a SDemocratic State, and the great principles of that party she derived from Virginia. Con terminous and identical in interest with Caro lina, she was naturally one of the first to yield to the infhluence of her great statesman; and where is the Southern man to-day who ldoes not bitterly deplore the tardiness with which that Influence extended itself beyond the Bounds of Carolina ? Had the entire Mouth, forty years ago, been wise instead of trusting, we might to-day have booeen free and instead of having our destiny debated In O(hio, would have held it in our own hands. "It was not uncommon to hear Georgia spoken of as wanting in that high-tonemd hJ tiilyto commerce and manufactures which distlnguished the more extreme class of Southern statensmen." Now, is It not time that we should ceasethis humiliating self-slander? Is it not degrada tion enough to have one Southerner parading aroundl the country as a reformed traitor for the gratification of the vainest and most con celted people on the face of the earth? What Southern statesmen have been hostile to com meree and manufactures? He makes the charge against a class. Will he name an indi vidual? The expression "high-toned hostility" lndicates that It was regarded generally as a mark of superiority; but he could not have Intended that, for he must know it to be in correct, unless he is one of those of whom there are some who rely for their knowledge more upon Yankee books than upon their own observation and thought. Perhaps he regards opposition to a protective tariff as hostility to commerce and manufactures. This is the only way in which such hostility has been manifested in the South, and yet the refusal of special privileges to particular classes is not hostility to them, but simply justice to the people at large. In this view we think the people of Georgia will concur with the other outhern States. For heaven's sake let us stop this self-debasement. When Southern men put pen to paper, let them at least do justice to their countrymen, and not merely parrot the slanders of their relentless enemies. B. THE BARATARIA CANAL. An Invitation to the Board of Trade to Send a Committee to Examine the Proposed Improvement. °1St. Louis Times.) After disposing of the postal business last night, the Board of Trade at the Lindell was requested to ,~amine a new plan for opening a channel for large steamships to and from New Orolens to tihe Gulf of Mexico. The plan Is to open the Barataria canal, so as to form a channel thirty feet deep. Capt. John Cowdon, projector of the plan, prse.ot.ed a map of the country, and explained the enterr s,. A company was chartered by the Louisiana Legislature last April, and the company pro poses to deepen the canal at their own ex pense and charge a toll for vessels corming through. The canal now contains about six feet of water and is navigated by small steamers. The Canal Company has ample means to put the work through, and all they want is permission from the National Government to go on. They prom ise to have a depth of twenty-four feet in one year from the (late of beginning work. The canal runs through several bayous and opens into Barataria Bay; the surface level of water at ordinary stage at Now Orleans is only ten inches higher than the surface level of the Gulf, so that the canal always remains full of water. It will fill with salt water from the Gulf, which is free from silt and sediment. From New Orleans to the Gulf by way of the canal the distance is only fifty-three miles, while it is 126 by the river. Capt. Cowdon requested the Board of Trade to appoint delegates to visit the canal and ex amine the scheme, and if they report it as meritorious he asks a memorial to Congress, not for pecuniary aid, but simply for permis sion to complete the work. About the 21st of this month an excursion party composed of delegations from various Western cities will down to inspect the canal, and Capt. Cow don wants St. Louis represented. On motion of Capt. Silas Bent, who heartily indorsed the project, President Filley, of the board, was directed to appoint five delegates to accompany the excursion. Mr. Filley will appoint the delegates in a few days. The St. Louis and New Orleans Packet Company will furnish free transportation to the excursion party. A ------ HON. E. JOHN ELLIS. [9hreveport Times.] Now that the navigation of Red river, even during the low water season, seems to have been secured, the people are under lasting obligations to the Hon. E. J. Ellis, member of Congress from New Orleans, for his exer tions in getting government aid towards the closing of Tone's bayou. as indicated in the dispatches which we published several (lays since. When the Ganger first manifested itself, Mr. Ellis repaired to Washington, and by his personal exertions with the administration, secured that aid, without which the work would probably have remained unperformed. Mr. Ellis is one of the hardest workers, as well as one of the most eloquent speakers in the House, and the people of Loul Islana, both in and out of his district, should be proud of so able a defender of their rights. His services in behalf of dthe Fourth 1)istrict are particularly "pportune at this time. Our legally elected .presentative has no certificate of election, rcause of the frauds of the Returning ardl, and, therefore, has no voice at Wash Iton; and the fraudulently counted-in car Sbagger has no interest in the district, nor lcinfuence with the administration with .gres., or with any other set of individfials er the sun, outside of the Packard and G 1s crew. j. DUDLEY SELPH AND THE RIFLE TEAM. [New York Herald.] The rifle practice of the British team last )turday was so far superior to any of its evious performances that the eyes of the ýaericans were suddenly opened to the fact ,at they had underrated the skill of our 'isitors. The average then made by the ,rlitish riflemen (203 3-5) is so near to that of the best average of the Americans (205) that the two teams now stand virtually equal in their practice, and the over-confidence in American success which was expressed in many quarters is now giving place to a rea sonable doubt as to the result. Prudence, therefore, dictates that the American team should leave nothing undone to increase its strength between this time and the 13th in *.._, Th.e ~t t step in this Iir.tion shotu be to secure the services of Mr. Dudley Helph, of Louislana, as a member of our team in the international match. Mr. Helph has proved himself to be one of the best shots in America, and has achieved a national reputation. It is understood that the members of our team are very desirous thft Mr.18elph should shoot at (Cromimoor for the championship of the world; but for reasons of his own, he prefors to reserve himself for the inter-Htate match which is to follow. It is of the utmost importance that ,ur best reflmenen should represent the United Itat's in the grand conteit., and Mr. t4ilph ought not to be left out. It is now in his power to rmn der his country brilliant service, and we can see no good rleason why he should refuse the opportunity. The team, no doubt, is willing to withdraw its lowest man to make a. place for this distinguished l marksman of the South, and Mr. Helph should rememler that if he dec linest to serve and the Americans should lose the match, much of the responsibility of defeat will rest with him. Academy of Music. COMMAIaDEUB OAzzznEuvE.-The opening of the season at the Academy last evening attracted a very large audience, who, for three hours, were delightiflly entertained by Mr. Cazeneuve, the conjuror and prestidigitateur, then making his first bow to our public. That Mr. Oazeneuve is an adept at esoamotage he manifested clearly to our senses last evening, the first part of his eor tertainment presenting munch novelty, and com bining the two elements of stage3oonjuring, the meohanical and the sleight-of-hand in nearly every case. Mr. Caseneuve is graceful besides, and there is only one drawback against making his entertain ments perfect, that is that he does not speak English. The interpreaetions of Mr. McOlelland, his agent and assistant, make up, however, for this deficiency by their clearness and facility of delivery. Our new conjuror, besides the pub lished programme, introducoed several other tricks, not the least clever of which was the caged canary trick, surprising the spectator thereby even more than by the others. The remainder of the evening was devoted to his cabinet trick, after the fashion of the Daven ports, and far more mystifying than even the cabinet trick of Prof. Oooke, whom we were wont to applaud at this same place of amusement at the close of last spring, and more difficult we should imagine than Hermann's pillory. Cazeneuve does not use ropes, but simply bands of linen, which, besides securing his arms behind his back, are sewn to the cuffs of his shirt sleeves, and after going through the usual so called spiritual manifestations-some of them quite new-e appears to the audience freed from his shackles, leaving simply upon his cuffs the thread which had attached the bands of linen to them. Mr. Oazeneave is endowed with an extraordi nary memory, as be evidenced with his caloula tions of back dates and recital of memorable events of the past when given the name of the year alone. This was evidenced also by his trick with cards and dominoes. But the double Indian mail trick capped the climax of surprise. The tick consists in taking a lady's trunk, looked, bolted, fastened with ropes and sealed on all sides, which is locked up in another large trunk placed in the cabinet. Mme. GOzeneuve, the charming wife of the Commat dentr enters the cabinet, and in one minute and a half after the curtain is drawn is found cosily ensconsed in a bag (the muth of which is tied on the outside) at the bottom of the well-securcd trunk. not a rope or a seal having apparently been displaced. The Oommandeur remains with us during the entire week, and will each night and on Wednesday and Saturday at the matinees give some of his beat creations and selections of the conjuror's art. Brevitles. The excursion trains on the railroads, and the excursion across the lake by the stermer CaOme lha were well patronized yesterday. It is estimated that no loss than four thonsand of our e tizens patronize these Sunday exoaursions, and that cer tainly should be an incentive to induce the rail road companies to make the Sunday excursions as agreeable as they can for those who patroniza them. The yact rae between the Adella and Maggie will take place on the 20th, A few Federal officals gathered at the granite building yesterday so discuss the probabilities of Tom Anderson being made Collector of the Port. "non a move is contemplated. NEW ADVERTISEMENTS. JERMEY AND ALDERNEY MILK. MILK. MILK.
