L 8., of Kenlucky, per haps one of the beat card players in that State, would never play a hand or risk a dollar if there was a black cat. in the room. . Ez-Governor B., from one of the Western States, an inveterate gamester, would never sit down to a table in a room where there was a looking glass. Some gamblers refuse to play if, on entering lbs room, the left foot crosses the thres hold first, and no persuasion can induce them to do so until they leave and return with Ibe rieht foot foremost. To put yoor foot on the chair of a player is a sore premonition ot oaa iuck. some men will never play on Friday. In 1849 I was a passenger on the steamer Star Spangled Banner, from New Orleans to Louisville. She was crowded with people, and an hour after leaving New Oilcans found twenty card tables drawn out, and three or four score of passengers deeply absorbed in tbe mystery of "old sledge," enchre and poker. All that night and the next day the game went on. As fortune, however, soon singled out and made victims pf the poorer and less skilled players, so the number gradually decreased nntil the fourth day nut, when only one table was running. Uld Hob Brasher, a negro trader, young Hen oandtorn, a norse trader, and two planters from Lafourche, still kept on. Although they had played almost incessantly for four days and nights, yet iuck bad favored neither par ty, and they were within a few dollars of even, The "bucking" had been princi pally between Brasher and Sandford, but heretofore they had kept themselves ithin the "centlemaa s limit lire hundred dollars. After leaving Memphis tbe game was renewed, and the bystanders observed " that big play ws on the tapis," as young Sandford was considerably under the influence of liquor, and when in that condition be was known to be a heavy player. Late at night tbe two traders came together; both had ' backing hands, and Louisiana and Kentucky bank notes soon almost covered the table. Tbe margin of five hundred dollars bad hiwn forgotten, and one, two, three, five hundred totter r?r'' passea oeiween them. At last Braiher Wei ba"k from the table, unbuttoned P l0? , from around bis boo'y A belt filled with' told pieces. Living it down upon" bank note la reclaimed, "Three thou sand dollars better!'' Saaford became speechless; bis face turned deadly pale; be called for a glass of liquor, which he drank, never once taking his eyes from the belt of goU. Be bad exhausted his means in the former Lets f all his money lay upon the table. At last a thought stroci him, " Bea I here, sir I" he exclaimed. "Yes, mats," and Sandford's body servant, a fine, athletic, pure-blood, cam to his side. "Get upon the table, sir!" Not daring to disobey as he knew well la that moment of frenzy hi young master wo'jU send a bullet through his brain did be refuse the slave trem blingly stepped pn the table, crushing the hank notts and geld bjnjatb his feet. " For the good Lord's sake-, masta Ben, don't bet dis nigger off I What will the old misses say iLo yon go home T Oh, masia Ben, please dou'l," groaned the boy, but ia vain. " Call you, sir!" shrieked Sandford, at the Jims time laying down four queens and an ace. "An invincible, sir I" said Brasher, with a sneer, " fcur kins and an ace I" And, as Brasher reached for his belt of gold, young Sandford fell to the floor, tbe blood gashing from hi month, nose and ears. With one spring, the slave started from the table! dashed through the thin folding door of the "Social Hall" out on the boiler deck, and, with a half-uttered prayer for the "old missus," he threw himself into the dark waters of the Mississippi, and was seen no more. Death prevented Brasher from claiming bis spoil. Sandford for weeks lingered on a sick bed, but at last recovered, and fqrever renounced the gaming table. He " made good," however, the money worth of the negro to tbe winner. Paris Letter-Fine Times In Paris. Conespondenee of the Richmond Dispatch. Pieis, May 19, 1869. During the week there has been a lit tie "playing at Revolution." The trouble may be said to have commenced on the evening of the 12th, following the meeting held in the Chatalet Theater, and which was convoked by M. Emile Ollivier, a moderate Liberal, to discus politic with hi opponent, M. Baucel. It is between these two candidate for the third electoral district of Pari that all importance i centered. It is a trial of strength between tbe moderate party, aided by tbe Governmeot-as it has no other choice and the revolutionists, rep resented by M. Baucel. Upwards of fif teen thousand persons besieged the above theater for admission, broke down the rail- logs, forced the doors, and rushed in. All order disappeared. With great difficulty the orator of the evening was heard, Finally tbe meeting had to be , dis solved, it became so boisterous and disloyal The crowd moved towards the Bistile, yelling seditious cries and singing the Marsellaise. Some sixty arrests were made. On Friday evening a political reunion took place at the Ma' poleon Circus. Iaside, the crowd was great, but outside still greater. Ulti mately, both crowds met and swept down the Boulevards, tearing down railings, trees, and uprooting stones. Shops were closed as Quickly as possible. Revolu tionary songs and cries became general. The police were maltreated with stones and life-preservers. One inspector is re ported to be dying, and several of th: men are more or less injured. Cavalry quickly arrived, followed by tho City Guard. These cleared the roadway, the police charging the side paths. All was soon over. Succeeding evenings wit nessed bands of young men marching through the streets singing prohibited songs and expressing illegal epithets. The students had a little affair of their own. The city is now calm. The right to hold these publio meetings expired on Monday night. Five days will elapse to allow excited passions to cool the news papers alone having the privilege to write warmly and on Sunday morning at eight the vote by ballot opens, ending on Monday evening at four. Some allow ance must be made for these disturbance;; it has been tbe first exercise of the right of electioneering nuder the second em pire. The French press is oorreot in say ing there baa been nothing in these ex cesses like what takes place during elec tion in England, America or Switzer land. Vsrytrrja; but there is this diner ence, that in France an election riot may end in a revolution in placing a bonnet rouge on the head of tbe sovereign sacking the Tuilerie and gutting tbe Palais Royal for "auld acquaintance" sake. Of course, Frenchmen still want the compliment of liberty they have a right to ask tor more; but et it be done in a constitutional manner like freemen. What i atill their due, it ia certainly not worth while overthrowing a dynasty and delug ing streets with blood to attain. It i a more prudent policy to give cautiously national characteristics remembered than to give all at once, and then be forced hereafter to recall. It is this latter course that bai orer proved moat disas trous for all governments in trance- republics included. It is tb)S ponditional instalment-riving of liberty, tbe natural conseqaeBCo of an individual system of government, that meets with most ap proval by those who know France best, and which the general election will un donbtedly ratify.

Several of the leading theaters have not paid eipeneei, and it is hinted that the influx of Esglish theatrical perforscrs ts this country will next fall be greater than ever. Tennessee Kepnblleanlsin-Ils Fnne ral About to Start. From the New Tork World J Tbe Times at last admits that the Re publican party in Tennessee and other Southern States has been conducted on tbe proscriptive and intolerant policy. The acknowledgment is also made that the party in those States " has cultivated a bitter and intolerant spirit," and "made blatant 'loyalty the sole condi tion of political privileges." This is the admission of one of the papers which has heretofore npheld and lauded this very policy, and joined with the other Radical paper in denouncing those who opposed this mode of governing tbe Southern States. This eonfession of that error comes at a late hour, but better even now than not at all, and we trust will open tbe eyes of those who have given the party which has been committing these outrages their support- The truth is, the management of polit ical affairs in Tennessee by the Republi can party has not only been a disgrace but a mockery upon our form of govern ment. There ha been neither freedom of speech in that State since the advent to power of Parson Brownlow. All man ner of crimes have been committed, in tbe name of liberty and under pretense of law, not only against the rights and liberties of the citizens of that State, but also against their persons, and the State kept thereby on the verge of an archy. All this has not only been up held by the entire Republican press, but the Times admit that the proceedings in Tennessee have been taken as a model for the management of the other South ern State governments. It has been worse than a despotism, exceeding in its intolerance and proscriptiveneas that of any of the monarchist governments of the Old World. The reign of Republicanism in Ten nessee has partaken more of the fnnati cism of the French Revolution and Reign of Terror than anything else. Yet it baa been upheld by tbe entire Republican party press, and all who protested against it denounced as traitors and copper heads, while such as resided in that State were disfranchised and often compelled to submit to the bayonet- Tbe Republican party, having done nearly all the damage that it was possi ble in tbe enforcement of this policy, and seeing that the people are rising up in mass agBinst the authors of these out rages upon liberty, is now endeavoring to make a virtu of necessity by confess ing all that has been charged against its course, in the hope of thereby obtaining a new lease of power. The leaders and organs of the party are pretending to ad vocate a more liberal policy. In the anxiety for further control in Teneessee, thy are compelled, aocerdiog to the Times admission, to acknowledge that the policy of the party in Tennessee ha been that "of hate;" that the Governor hns heretofore " been vested " with power fatal to tbe freedom of eleotioos; that the work of reconstruction has tended to ward anarchy: and that the measures adopted by the party heretofore have been mere contrivances for the gratifica tion of enmities and the furtherance of selfish " ends," In these statement are admissions that all we have charged, in connection with other Dsmecratic journals, against the Republican party in its treatment of the South, is true. These confession came at a late day, and, accompanied as they are by the announcement that a change of policy is required to save the party from defeat, they look very much like a death-bed remorse, we mistake the sentiment of the peoplp of that ftate if they are cajoled by those confessions into giving the Republican party another lease of power there. Qo the contrary, it show more plainly tbe necessity, if they wish to maintain their political freedom and desire to secure their politi cal and personal rights, of repudiating all who hare bad any part or lot in en forcing the proscriptive and intolerant polioy in that 8 tat. Roehcfert-Hls Last Appearance. The Public, a French journal in the Imperial interest, writes: "Messrs. Rochefort. Baacel and Baudin, the re- etntiy ieieC40iJU, Lave ta'a.n the prescnoea oaiu, wnioa is to mie rueci ; Whence to tbe Constitution ..j fioiiT-i tn ib Emneror.' This i a i swear - very plain promise, and would eem to need uo eoieasnUrf' or eplanaton. Every oath is an engagement of honor, but will Messrs. Rochefort, Btacel and Baudin so understand it T" To this th Ketf.il, a French R,epublipn paptr, thus pertinently retorts: "0 the 2g:h of December, 1848, the citizen Lcuis N, Bonaparte was elected President of the Republic and took th oath prescribed by the Constitution, which was to (hi effect : 1 In th presence of God, and be fore the people of France, represented by the National Assembly; I swear to be faithful to the Democrat! Republic, one and indivisible, and to perform all thj dulie imposed upon nt bv tbe Constitu tion.' Perhaps the Public will tell us' whether thi was an 'engagement of honor f t 1p Kffre Baot. The question bow at issue before th people of Pennsylvania is not sierely whether twenly thousand negro ballot shall be added to tbe Radical vote in this State, but whether th ignorant field hand of Georgia, Alabama and Loaiai tna shall make law (or the intelligent white men of Pennsylvania. The que tioo is whether tbe ignorant and brutal Voudoo worshippers of the South, teuo rant of the ballot, and careless of it privileges, driven to the polls in herds by carpet-bsg masters, whom they have ex changed for their overseers, shall dictate constitutions and forms of government for Pennsylvania, It is hot so much whether neeroes shall vote in Pennsvl- ' vania as it is whether the voice of ber citizens Bhall be overwhelmed and their constitution abrogated by burling the ig norant blacks of tbe reconstructed States on the ballot box at the bidding of their Radical owners. If republican govern ment can stand this shock, in conjunc tion with the corruption of the Legisla ture, who sball say that our political in stitutioos cannot defy every assault T One of the schemes by which enemies of free government seek its destruction is to degrade the ballot by putting it into the bands of ignorant negroes, who are at the mercy of tbe designing and corrupt. w oen the people shall grow weary of the evils thus engendered, the Radical ene mies pf the republic will be ready to pro claim the failure ot popular government. those who seek to destroy tbe constitu tion of Pennsylvania by invoking the aid of the negroes of the South are not the friends of equal suffrage, but they are the enemies of tree government. Patriot, Tbe Imperialist. We have scarcely noticed this Impe rialist aspirant for public favor, not be cause it is not conducted with ability and propriety, but because its fuactioa is supererogatory, for as a simple matter of fact, more than balf of the journal of the country, the government, army, navy, all the power's of tbe ruling faction for eight years past, however blindly, have constantly labored to establish monarchy, and the problem is now to be solved, shall we restore our Democratic system now in ruins, or march on in pursuit of imperial ism, until the whole land is a vast pande monium of horrors? We say in pursuit. for tbe all-sufficient reason that mon archy is as eternally impossible in this country as is Democracy on tbe princi ples of the ruling faction there can be nothing but anarchy, that same chronic anarchy that we witness in Mexico and South America, until the anarchical ele ments are sloughed off, die out, become extinct " like the Indians." Monarchy consists in tbe rule of classes that is, in artificial distinctions in our own race, and Democracy is based on the natural distinction of raoe, and which necessarily prevent the former. If, therefore, the natural and eternally ordained rule of the white man over the negro be abolished, ignored, debauched, lost sight of, and tbe American masses distorted and degraded into a common citizenship with negroes, of course we must drift back into mon orchism just to the extent that that be come practicable with uoh material. But, we repeat, monarehiiai, as it proved in exicn, is as impossible as Democracy on a Mongrel basis, and therefore the Imperialist is fooling awty it time. There i one cure for the nation Resto ration of the Whits Republic, or death death to our civilization as well as liberty, and every man in our midst that assents to. Mongrelism, is a traitor to Democracy and a fool tn boot, yf neces sity. New York Day-Book. Shipments ol Arms and Hnnltlona ol War lo Cnbav.
