An almjst irrcsistib'e itujuhe to

"Iteeeived your card ten minutes asro.

ty band-shaking lten drew bis friend
into tbe bouse and presented him to

sweet face, who welcomed him most
cordially. His name was a familial
one in the household, for Hen was
never tired of dwelling on the good
qualities of "Urowuing." and Leila
bad more than once declared berself
"sick of his very Dame."
Half aa boar was spent in

guns, when the dmuer hell summoned

went to his cabin after as is stated,
having held a consultation regarding
tbe election with a number of Repub
lican leaders. He was known ia tbe
parish as a atetdfasi and s.tmewbat
demonstrative Republican, but fear
ing lor bis life, he had recently join
ed a Democratic club. According
to the sworn sta'emeut of his wife,
Klita Piukston, which is now before
me, he went quietly to bed oa the
niht ia question, uot fearing or ap
ptvhetidiug any danger. At ab.iut
3 o'clock tbe next (Suad iy) moruiog
a uumber of mea, wbo from tbeir
voices were kuowa to be white, came
to the cabin, and, kax kiug oa the
door, said, "Come cut here, Pinkston,
vour Vankee fneoili want to take
You to Moiiroe."
To this Mrs. Piukstoa, who thought
she recoguized the rmce of the speak
er, replied. "Vou are no Vankee
you are Dr. Vou ig." A maa named
Goi:n, wbi) was af.erwards reeog

answered. "Dr. Young is not ia ibe

no importance had ps.Md between

door of ihevdliia, and a Dumber of

Billy Parks, G 'f.'''- Frank Durham,
' Buck' R.tker and o'bers, rushd iu
to Ibe room Tbey weut up to the
bed where Piiikston was ivinz, and
twenty white men present when her
husband was killed, aud that Dr.
Young was one of tbem. Tbe body
of tbe child was found ia tbe lake
lour or five daye after the murder of
Piukston. Dr. Youug and Mr. Logan,
who are mentioned iu Mrs. Piuksiou'a
affidavit, are here, and say tbat tbey
can'prove alibis. They also say that
Mrs. Piukston was a rabid Democrat,
but ber busbaud was a quiet man
wbo bad little to do witb politics.
Another most important vitness
was Benjamin James. He was oue
of tbe constables appointed for eleo
lion day in Ouachita Parish. He
said tbat bo s arted from bis borne
near Monroe at about 1 o'clock to take
ibe ballot-box to Logtown. When be
bad gone about two miles be was
stopped by men who took him to a
headquarteri. which had been estab
lished in the road. He saw seventy
or eighty men armed. Tbey look his
pistol away from him, aud iheo told
him to go on ahead or them. He
dismounted, and after going a few
steps, supposiog that he was to be
murdered, be started to run. Theu
tbe men began to shoot at him. After
he had ouce been shot and bad fallen,
as be laid on tbe ground one of the
men placed his pistol against James'
temple and fired. The shot stuuued
bim but did not kill bim, as it ooly
grazed his terpole. Of course no
election took place at Lotitown, and
James said tbat he has not yet re
covered bis borse, saddle-bags or
pistol. This is an undoubted case of
an election outrage. Tbe testimony
to-day has caused great excitemeut,

Another feature of American char
acter is tbe fussy and restless pursuit
of personal prominence or notoriety.
There being do formal distinction of
rauks in tbe Republic, we see every
human being there st-iving as tbe
great end of existence to perk bis
heard a be can above bi neighbor's.
I'bere is do country which i bo bro
ken up into sets and clique, eacb
-cbeniiug to find something to give
it a pretext for affecting an individu
al superiority. Thus it appears, tbat
auioug tbe watering plaeos, Cape
May looks down oo Atlantic City
bat Cape May i looked down oa by
Loug Branch, and tbat Saratoga
tbiuks itself decidedly above Loug
ttrancb, wbile Newport, on the
strength of its blue blood, assumes to
be an aristocratic eyrie percbed al
together above the rest of tbe world.
It i mucb the same ia ordinary so
ciety. .New 1 ork professes contempt
for bostomaa priggish ness. Boston
retaliates on New York witb scorn of
shoddy," and twit Philadelphia
with provincialism. And so it goes
on through every grade and section
f tbe community. The quiet occu
pation of a settled and acknowledged
position witb which tbe occupant is
content is starcelv known in tbat
land of freedom. There i room for
very bodv to aspire, and everybody
doe so. Tb easiest platform to
mouut upon in sucb a state of thing
is money or tbe sbow of money ; aod
thus the American ambition becomes
mainly fixed on it acquisition. Per
haps, however, what is most wanting
io tbe American character, or at least
to it peace of mind and happiness,
i self confidence and self respect.
It may be thought at first sight that
ibe Americans are especially of a
conceited and confident nature; but
be extreme sensitiveness which tbey
display in regard to almost every
kind of criticism shows that tbey are
uot at beart thoroughly at ease a to
heir own pretensions, at is hardly
possible to say auytbiog to Ameri
cans about tbeir country without
jarring on some lender point. Tbey
canuol bear to be told ot tbeir faults,
and tbey smart under anything like
praise as if it were an assumption ot
upenoriiy. Ibev are inclined to
ride themselves on their sense of
uutnor, but on this particular point
beir sense of humor is very dull.
The sort of banter or caricature which
people of other na.ions, firm in tbeir
wn faith in themselves, only laugh
at, seems to irritate an American exc
lusively. He is like a man with a
aw skiu, to whom a midge is torture.
fclveu .Mr. Lowell once lashed out in a
latuphlet, (hi a Certain Condeven-
ion in i oreif.er.s, and threatened
Euglaud witb war as a punishment,
jot for hostile acts, bat for ber "airs
t patrouage" toward America.
Every seuible person recoguizes
nut the I uited States are a great
eople in iheir way, but they t.re not
i.-youd the reacb of criticism, lbey
.re wbal the conditions of tbeir ex-
teuce bave made them. Tbey bave
iiiber'o eujoved the material pros
perity which lay at tbeir bands in tbe
.sources of a vast and virgin terri
orv ; but ibev bave not advanced
AUti equal success iu othe' directions,
ior perhaps could it be expected tbat
bev should do so, considering ibe
H-cubar character of the population,
aud the work lbey had immediately
io do. There are, no doubt, faulis,
.weaknesses io old States, consequent
on their course of development; but
o there are in new ones, and the
great mistake of America is to fancy
tsclf full grown. It is still, in many
respects, ia a cradle and loosely com
pacted condition. bat is mainly
