New Orleans and a Constitutional Con
IMarksville Bulletin I
The New Orleians DEMOCRAT has beOn giv
ing its metropolitan reamehrs some very se(si
ble advice, and if tthy listen to it they will
not be apt to go very far astray. There are
two things which evidi lntly disturb the mind
of the average citiz .n of New Orleans. The
removal of thel State capital is one of these;
a supposed disposition to tamper with the
public .'bt the other. The DEMOCRAT inti
mates pretty plainly that if the city would
preserve the one and softtn alleged hostility
to the other, it must quit thwarting the efforts
of the people at constitutional reforms.
Truer words than these were never spoken,
and no other paper in the city but the DEMO
CRAT would have dared to utter them. As
long as New Orleans capital manifests a dis
position to intervene between the people and
their just reforms, just so long will it continue
to provoke hostility. Had the city spoken
out in tones of thunder in favor of a constitu
tional convention, instead of egging the advo
cates of this pipular measure on one of its
most noted thoroughfares, the capital ques
tion had never tuen agitated. Had the com
mercial classes evinced more conlidence in the
people, and seconded their efforts to obtain
needed reforms instead of trying to frustrate
them, the people would have been with and
-wt against them.
-These are solemn facts, and we tell the
solid men of New t)rltns it is not txoo
late to utilize them. We assure them that
there is quite as much honesty and good
faith to be found in the people as there ever
was in the money changers of the temple.
But they must act, and act on the side of the
people, who are not their untural enemies, but
their friends, if they will permit them to) re
main so. There is such a thing, however, as
driving a people to the wall.
One thing is clear the commercial classes
will not be allowed to stand in the way of
seeded rerMums and the more strenuous theiri
opposition, the more determined the resist
ance will be. We tell them in truth and
sobernese, the people are determined to carry
out these reforms. Nor will the agitattion
cease until they are carried out. There It
going to be no compromise in this matter.
Legislatures may be put up and knocked
down to the highest blidelhr, conventions
packed, but it will avail not hing. The hand
writing Is on the wall. The bayonet consti
tution of '68 must give way to a constitutIon
of the people.
rlf New Orleans is disnosed to* co-operate
with the country we are willing to riiur.t her
half way, and to act with her in a spirit of
truth and justice. Stheweed have no, misgiv
inlgs on this head. If, on the contrlarv, she
pirefers an alliance with the ilonopolists and
those who have cO ,mbind together to e'at out
the silthstanlce of the people, she is welcoinue
to all that she can make out of it. We w),ul d
he glad to have her on our side in this great
tight. But if she spurns our allianre',, It it,
I,h so. We shallat )at leshave the satisfactilon
of knowing we sought what, she d*'li'eil, arid
for the rest we will endeavor 1o take care of
LETTEIRS FROM THEl PEOPLE.
(The DEMOCRAT is responsible for none of
;he views expressed iIn the e·ollliunlelatioIlu
itrdr this hetl; but no earnriuniications will
e printed except from responsible parties.]

One other matter, said Mr. Stephents, hii
wished to refer to. ieo had see.n Itsltted that
Mr. Hill had taken exceptions to It remark he
(Mr. Stlephens) had made in his Augustai
speec('h, about tihe part ho (Mr. S.) acted in
framinig tihe platformi of principles in 1571i,
ilrndr which tile Slatea was rescued from irlii
rule and re-ostabllshed i i tIhe iexrctire of its
coinstitutional rights. He said, itn referrirng to
the part he tuook in making that platfornr,
ihe simply stated a fact as an evide~nce of
the charac'tr of his Derrocracv. It was not
with a view to putting In any claim a.s one of
the saviors of the Stite. lie thought the
State neiedod a good deal of saving ye.t. What
he said was strictly true, nor dloen Mr. ilill
successfully gainsay It. What he says about.
his preslding over an organizartioin inl I)De.nm

ganization was not )emocrratlc. 'The party
there forlmd was characterizedl as "the Con

(Mr. Stephens) simply statird a fact its evi

as 'Mr. Stephens ever heard, but, just before'

appeal to te t peopile of (Ge nrgia., ill which
he utter) ly repnlriattil tihe plrinciples of
that platform, and placedl himself enrrtirely
outtside tile I)Democratic ranks. This wis il
the early Ipart of lDeceeiiter, 15711; tihe thrii

The use of poisons for the protection of
gr'owing crops against their cinllrnni llrlmy,
the fly anil beetle, has btecotme so frel'iquent
that fiLrlli.ers lare apt to forget tilhe properties
of tihe article they are han(dling, and serrious
resullts often follow its ca.reless use. Frori
malny places we hear of large nrrmbers of
feathetred beauties dying from thle eating of
the potato vine upon which Paris green has
been dusted. Quail, orioles and robins suffer
severely in this way. Dead fish are found
floating upon the surface after eating tilhe
bugs washed into the ponds and streams. A

The San Antonio authorities are taking
steps toward the identification of the graves
of the heroes of the Altino. Thie Galveston
News says Col. King will also attempt to save
what remains of the ashes of the heroes of
tihe Alamo. In 1837, a year after the massa
cre, Capt. Juan Seguin hadi the charred and
mutilated relics gathered together and placed
in a large box, the names of the victims be
ing inscribed on the inside of the lid. The
box was interred at a triangular piece of land
a few hundred yards from the Alamo. Col.
King is sanguine of discovering this very box,
which will be guarded from further neglect
We were last night sent a specimen of the
worm which is now found in the cottom fields
in this vicinity, and we are reluctantly coln
pelled to believe that it is the genuine cotton
pest. The worms sent to us are from the
Horme plantation of Mr. Oliver Wilds, and
with therm was a cocoon, which is certainly
that of the Simon pure cotton caterpillar.
We fear that the chances are in favor of the
early destruction of the cotton crop.-[Natchez
