f the three expedlitionary cl.)lullllins that had

rovince to be invaded is B1 kh, the ancient
aetria, which was con(l·llorel in the seven
nth century by the Great Moguls, in the
ghteenth by the Afghans, and in 1525 by the
kharlans. The rights, however, of the
mir of Bokhara over Balkh woere never ac
owledged by the Afghans, and probablly at

English frontiers of India." This new expe
lition is certainly very significant.

THE RELIGIloUM RLITE OF TIIHE
IIAYTIAN .
A Race Who Eat Chlldren-Their Re
markable Iellers-Primitive
Marriage Cuatomng.
The inhabitants of the mountains back of
Aux Ca(,yes, and, in fact, nearly all the inte
rior of llavti aIl a few in Aux Cayis itself,
adhere stidl to the old African system of
heathenis m called Ohidlismi. They have their
churches in the moiunlain fastnesses in almost
impenetrable thickets, where none but their
own kind dare enter. They are the most de
graded cannibals. Somei of my readers may
Ie astolllshedl to knoiw this, but, nevertheless,
I assure them that such is the fact. Ameri
cans are engaged in mnissionary work in China
anLd Japan, but in this country, so much
nearer home, where actual cannibals exist
even in one of its lariest cities, this work
has been sadly neglected. These people do
not eat adults, but children, which are con
stantl y stolen for the purpose. Last evening, in
the same street where I am stopping, a poor
womalnin went out to a nleighborinlg shop for a
moment and left her child asleep. When she
returned it was gone; stolen by an Obiad for
sacrilice. I am told that the manner in which
these people operate is this: For instance,
at each service inl a temple the priest allots to
a certain person the task of producing a child
at the next reeLting fr sacrilice. When the
child is produced, if it is found to he lean,
they apply themselves to the task of fatten
ing it as quickly as possible before it can be
kuiled. Ailasortea iim 1ets-' rc--esort-cu to by
these fiends in procuring victims. O(no of the
mnost corntmonl is the use o(f a certain plant
which grows here, tie se.cret of which is
known only to these Oliads. One of the
women will come into the city selling cachou
nuts or something of that sort, and as soon as
she sees a nice fat child she will manamge in
some way to embrace it, at the same time
taking its hand in hers, which has previously
been rubbed with the juice of the plant. In a
few hours the child apparently dies, and the
parents wonder as to the cause of its death. It
is buried, and the sane night these people will
come and dig it up and carry it off into the
mountains, and there apply the juice of an
other plant, which arouses it from the stupor
produced by the other plant, and it becomes
as well as ever, and is sacriticed, A story is
told here, and vouched for even by the foreign
merchants here, of a child which died in this
way, and its father was suspicious of the
cause and went at night with four men, all
armed, and laid in ambush and watched.
About 12 o'clock some Obiads came acd com
menced to disinter the body. Soon after it
was brought to the surface it came to life and
walked about, and the whole party were
about to start off when the ambushed party
fired on them, and on hurrylng to the spot the
father was astonished to find among the
slain his own mother. The child lives in
Aux Cayes to-day, and Is a handsome young
lady. I had a man pointed out to me who was
in the grave three days, having incurred the
hate of another man who anplied the juice of
the plant to him. After three days he was
resurrected by his enemy, and the effect of
the plant passing away he came to life again,

The Obiads, when children cannot be pro- 0
cured, sacrifice sheep, and for this reason you ri
cannot hire a Haytian to eat nmutton. The

that at such times they emit fire from their (
mouths.

A Haytian should he be out after 10 o'clock at

Ildd, Col. R. It. Todd and S. D.
McEnery, Enrq.
[CorresDondence of the Democrat.]
MONRoE, August f19, 1578.
There was a large and enthusiastic gath
ering of the Democracy of Ouachita in Mon
roo last Monday evening. to ratify the action
of the Baton Rouge convoution. A great
many prominent gentlemen were present from
the parishes of the Fifth Congressional Dis
trict, convoked to nominate a candidate for
Congress. The meeting was called to order
by 8. D. McEnery. Esq.. Capt. W. P. Ren
nick taking the chair.
Col. Reeves, of Tensas, first addressed the
assembly. tIe took occasion to speak first
with regard to the nomination of Major
Burke, saying that, while he would have sup
ported Col. Richardson, and while he recog
nized in Co(I. Mon.!lre a Iman whorm Louis
ianians loved, a thorough gentleman and a
noble-hearted patriot, he thought Major
Burke worthy of the honor dolne him at
Baton Rouge. He said: "Major Burke has
done us an inestirmable service. Through the
inlluence he wielded at Washington and his
bold assertion of our rights he secured to
Louisiana the blessings of home rule. I fully
and heartily Indorse the nomination of this
able and successful champion of our rights.
"The great question," pursued the Colonel,
"that camie before the convention was that of
instructing for the calling of a cronstitutional
convention at the earliest possible moment.
I thank tIeaven there was a resolut,ion to this
effect. Since the le)rcr'cratic party caine into
power I have thought itincumbiiint on us, both
to vindicatre our self-respect andcm hilrulor ini the
e-yes of the world as well as flrom motives of
interest and Ilicy, to utterly repudliate the
infamous, fore-hbogotten, iei od-dyed wreck
andl ruin cmestitutiion of 1865, and frame a
now organlic law for ourseilves." HIii gave his
reasons in full for his opinion on this subject,
and then proceerldi to discuss national qutrs
tions and our inte-rests in C(Iongress. Ilis
speech was emphatic aunl his views well rle
lined.
Capt. . E. Kidld, of Jackson, was next
a Idtlupon. Hisap l, ra l was greetedi with
hearty applaruise. Ie ber'gain his sfpeedt by nio
tiring thre p iresenrc of srveral ge'ntlim'en who
had this nirerling brrn sacrificed on tirhe altarr

tiheir present enuthusiasml observed that this
seemirdel ti he a feast of the disappointrt ld. He
said he was haippy to rmrannounce that, ars for
himself, "though slightly dilsiguried., h' was
still in thle irng." lie, spoke of the action of
the Bliton Rouge (convention in tihe hig-hest
terms of commrentlation. He said: "The
voice of t.he peorpli his rbeen heard- the i.st
vt'stigr of .l ltadicl misruile shuill be wiped out
forever. The ljudgmient has been ,ndnlered
by the highelst couirt of appeal, It rnds: 'It

('ol. T'odd adverted to national politics, and
nade an able expose of the principles and
policy of the lDemocratic party. ltel.rring to
thei principle; of State rights and horne rule,
said he: "I do not hl'sitati' tl dieclar', that the
only hope of the rnainltillance and perpetiua
tion of republican institi tions and of the lib
erties of our people lies in tIre nforcemernt of
andrl the angtraftiir. on the policy of thei .gn
eral government of those gr'at prir('apl ,es
that cctnstitute the basis aril groundwork of
the Democratic party." Certain ideas, he
said, once fondly cherished had been dissi
poted by the war'. "Buit," sarid he, "I deny
that the rsu lts of(, the war arnd thei adoption
of the anmrldrdlenlts have changel the charac
te;r of ourr governlmerLnt and convertedIL it irtto a
centralize(d dispotisrn, or replublic, if you will.
No! a thousand tirnt's no! T'h:e principle of

before the Fedeer'al constitution was firainxue'
which the constitution was draLired to ce)rtise
erate arnd plerpetuate, which was planted en
ourr shores wit the cerring orf our firs st colony.
'The love of thre people of Louisiana for this.

ceived its greatest ,low, andri he.re, in our Stalte,

when the minions of Federal power'-- thLe paid
janissaries of a corrupt dynaity--invaded'l the
sacred precirncts of our l'gislative halls, and
at the point of thre bayonet drove fronrt their
seats the chosen representatives of the people.
I rejoice in the prospect, nay certainty, that
in a few sihort mIlonths thie ) Drnmocratic part;
will have control of both houseis of Congress;
but notwithstandling this our triumrph will
not he complete, for thil antagonistic iforces of
States' rights and free goverrrnimnt on one,
hand, and c'ntralization and usurpation (,on
the other, will be arrayed against each other
in a mirghty struggle in the lpresid(lential con
test of -18j0. I believe ourir f'eS will ibe led by
that arch enemy of the South and free gov
