The correspondent of the Now 1 York Herald, writing from Havaon, says that the students who were coln demned to the chain gang for parttii pation in the Castanon affair are to be pardoned. We are glad to observe that the New Orleans Senti- Weekly Louisianian enters upon its second volume much improved typographically. We wish it the long future of prosperity its merit deserves. We acknowledge the receipt of a specimen number of the Weekly l'it ness an eight page paper, Mr. John 1 l)ougall, publisher, New York. The Witness is an excellent; paper. Sub scription--two dollars per annum. The question as to who is editor-n chief of the New Orleans daily organ of the Custom-house faction of the Republican party, has been definitely settled by a card of retraction which appears in that journal of a rec'ut signed, " G. W. Carter, Edit or National Republican." 6' Smart Aleck," of the Iberville Pioneer, pinched for subjects, amuies himself and nauseates his half-dozen readers by getting off a score or two of bad puns, for which Lieutenant Governor Pinchback's cognomen furn ishes the material. Wonder if " Aleck" thinks such things have any weight as political arguments ? Mr. T. G. Compton, in former years editor of the Opelousas Sentinel and of the Courier of the same place, has taken charge of the editorial chair of the Rapides Gazette, and we shall expect marked improvement in the paper under his management. Mr. Compton is a recent convert to Repub licanism, and as such we wish him god speed, and will not call him ttrn coat as we have been called by same for deserting a rotten cause. The January Number of Harper's I Magazine offers fresh and unusual at tractions to the numerous reader: of that periodical. Its poetry, its stores, its illustrated papers, its miscellan- f eous articles, and its editorial depart- t ments, this numbier reaches the high est standard of excellence. Of its twenty articles, eight are illustrated, the number containing altogether t sixty-eight eugravings. A glance at the table of contents discloses avariety of attractive, instructive, and inter esting matter that is almost bewilder ing. The Custom-house Republican says that several of the Senators who voted for Mr. Pinchback in the recent extra sension of the Senate " offered themselves for sale to combat War moth, but were contemptuousiy dis missed from notice by the Reform Republicans "-meaning the Curstom house malcontents. Those statemrents are composed' wholly of the same article which we use to wash ink from our type. In the first 'place, no such offer was made by any of the Senators referred to, and secondly, they would have been jumped at by the malcontents if they had been madle. ADDRESS Of the tepublican State Central Com mittee of Louisiana. RooMs OF THE COMMITTr~.. ew Orleans, December 22, 1871. To the 1 ppublicans of Louisiana : The ratifying intelligence received from .I parts of the State of the unanil. )us endorsement of the action of the Senate in the recent election for Lie tenant Governor, induces this conlmmi Ce to pleselnt to you a resume of the ets precedent thereto: Luri g the two campaigns of 1870 a few ambitious mesn, principally federa 'office-holders, organized a holtin' faction in our ranks. Not withst ading an overwhelming de teat, t use dissentionists determined to r le or ruin," industriously sought to spread discontent by assert ing th t the policy of the State ad ininist" tion would be to exclude from thee every colored man, and graden ly transfer the government to the c@ trol of the D)emocracy. Un fortunm ely, the bolters obtained con trol o the late Central Committee, and uir or their auspices a convention was ca ed to meet in New Orleans in Aungus last. It is, perhaps, needless to ree r to the outrages then and there perpetrated. T'his so-called conver ion met in the Federal Cus tonm-ht ise, outside the jurisdiction of Louisie ia; the legally elected repre sentati es of the people were excluded by ar ed federal deputy marshals and fe eral troops, and a bogus organ ization Ift'eeted, although not a quorum was p nseat until sixteen additional bogus lelegates, principally federal emplo, 's, were appointed, on motion of at f eral office-holder, to fill the places )f excluded regularly chosen mimii. *s. 0 The ,gross ursupations necessitated I d the holt ing of the Republican Conven- " tion a Turner Hall, not a secret con clave, narde(d by armed sentinels, but oI n andl free to the whole peo ple. '. le proceedings of that con ventio were spread broadcast, and everyv icere met the full and hearty approl ttion of Republicans at home and th aughout the nation. Con ug to the next scene in this politic I drama. The outcry against i the St e administration was vigor- In ously ulintained by the factionists, gi but how much truth there was in Iw the el rges of antagonism to the col- P ored 1 aple, and secret afttiliation with t' the I) mocracy, can be best deter- cm mined by the events of the sixth of sl I)ecenxer. Upon both parties a prac- tI tical t-at 4 their sincerity was snd- Ii denly nif ulexpectedly forced. The " lamen tble death of Oscar James Dunn I "eated a vacancy in a constitu- a tional 'iflte, to fill which the State pi Senate was convened. The cloven cl foot . treason could no longer be t, hiddeln Their mask of deceit and d dissim lation was ruthlessly torno away, ..nd the bolters exhibited in to their t. e colors. Ohe of the foremost i' colore mmen in the country-one ai excepl :onal devoted to his race and e advam ed Republicanism-becalne the n candi ite of the party for the vacant Ih Lieu .ant Governorship, and receiv- b ed th. earnest support of the State j admitstration, while the Custom- t< house faction, to defeat him, and f. further their secret aim to irrevocably 0 divide the Republican party, boldly a enter4l into litgue with the Demo- fi crats, oho, true tp their proscriptive t preju ces, exacted (the only qualifl- u cation they demanded), that their a candi ite should be a white nmn.! ! a The, traditions and platform of the i Republican party of Louisiana pledged d its ao.ierents to " an equal distribu- 1 tion tong white and colored alike d of all cfies." b Thi, the bolters deliberately ig- J nore thereby betraying the claims R of niuety thousand Republican voters, and exhibiting a treachery unparal leled in the history of political organ- a izatic :as. The Custom-house faction t even sorted to threats to intimidate r Seua rs, as in the case of Senator t Buttlc, of Plaquemnines p)arish. The i federl Marshal, S. B. Packard, as- ' sertet, to him that the State would be (3 put under nmartial law if the coalition, c of which he is the leader, did not I win in the contest. How abased they t feel at the fruitless results of all their f trea erous ant nefarious plottings t we Uve r.o means of judging, but s the l.st commentary that can be given on this contest of L'oyalty vs. Treason 1 is ci tained in the vote which gave to the Republican party a glorious I victory, and drove its leagued enemies beaten and dismayed to their haunts. a 0" call of the roll for election of t Lieetenanut Governor the Senators re- i spol ed as follows, each candidate vot for his opponent, according to culst m and courtesy: F P.

An dernh, Antoine, Blackman, Bowmana, Daiele, Futch, Herwig, Ingraham, O'Hara, Pinchback, Ray, Smith, Sy pher, Thomas, Thompson, Todd-six teen, including seren Democrats and six 'ustom-house employes ! lpublicans! if these men, on an occ on of comparatively inferior im po mnee, can so vilely betray your ,pa ad its solemn pledges, will you trust them in the great crisis of 1872, whil: your liberties-aye, even your liv--are staked upon the issue of º thtraggle I Fortunately,the victory of the sixth of December positively i demonstrates that the Rtepublcan par ty can carry Louisiana against the Custom-house fiction and Demnocracy combined. a One particular point it is desirable should be made clear. The whole po litical capital of the bolters is founded on wanton mendacity. Assuming, by a virtue of occupancy of federal posi tions,. to be the direct representatives of'the national administration, they t have, with a persistency equaled only e by its falsity, endeavored to instill in the public mind a belief that the 'State t administration is antagonistic thereto. I This is not true. The Republican t party, of which this conunittee is the head, and to which the State officials give allegiance, will, under all circum stances, stand tiim and true with the national Republican organization, andl I guarantee Louisiana for Grant if it is the expressed desire of the party, in convention assembled, that he be re elected to the Presidencv. Finally, your Central Committee regard the action of the members of the Senate, in extra session convened I on the sixth of December, 1871, in I giving full recognition to the claims of the colored people, of such impor tance as to justify the declaration that I our party has again been consolidated, and that with measures of retrench ment and reform in all branches of the government which the party pro 1 poses to carlry out, and your earnest co-operation with this committee, de feat in 1872 is an utter impossibility. Let there be no compromise with trea son, but, with the watchword, Eter nal vigilance is the price of liberty," emblazoned on your banuers, press on to a glorious triumph that will overtop in benefits to humanity even those 'past victories which have ren dered our beloved Louisiana truly "the hlaund of the free !" THE COMMITTEE. Last of the Commune. The Shooting of Another Insurgent. The correspondent of the London in Daily Echo says: fo Gaston Cremieux was shot this rit morning at Marseilles. The follow- at ing details have reached me by tele- th graph : The condemned communist, C( who was contfined in the prison of St. aI Pierre, was informed of his fate at tip two o'clock. He appeared calm and of collected, and replied, firmly, " I will m show you how one ought to die." He Ci theu put his papers in order, dressed re himself, and got into the wagon that ni was to conduct him to } oot St. to Nicholas. Arrived there, Cremieux asked for a few minutes to finish a piece of poetry; having done this he charged M. Vidal, the Jewish rabbi, cl to beg M. Esquiros to complete a drama lie had begun. At seven o'clock a cart drove up, nud he wasn taken in it to the platform of the l+ Pharo. The sentence was then read, ti andt Cremieux appeared to listen to every word. After spending a few ri minutes with his religious consoler, tl he approached the fatal post. He E bore a kind of ring in his hand, with 1 which he intended to attach himself to the post in the event of his courage i ftiling him, but lie did not make use of it. He prayed the soldiers to aim o0 at his heart, and not his face, as his . family desired his body. He then f took off his hat, coat and waistcoat, 1 undid his cravat, opened his shirt,and tl standing firmi.and erect, with no band- tl age over his eyes, cried out : "Now, tige! Vire Ia R1epb"- . He fell c (lead before he could finish the word. The public numbered about five hun- ti dred. The body was afterward taken h by the family of the deceased to the Jewish cemetery. Tile execution f passed off quietly. ti 4Wti A paper by Dr. Cheron on medical , art in relation to military organiza- v tions, gives some curious details iun regard to the period of growth in p the human being. The average num- h ber of Frenchman liable each year to e military service is 395,000, but about 1 61,000 are exempt from various causes, a of which deficient height is one of the b most frequent. This, Dr. Cheron t thinks, is not a sufficient ground fi for exemption, as the time required l to reach the full development of the e stature varies considerably in ditfer- t4 ent races. The population of France o being composed of mixed races, pre sents great differice as regards . height, and the time of growth varies greatly from one region to another, according to the origin of the inhabi- ; tants. The descendents of the abor- r ig iual Gauls, occupying the central zone of France, from the Alps to the o Atlantic, are remarkable for develop ing so slowly that they scarcely reach their full height before the age of twenty-six. The inhabitants of the south-sprung from Greeks, Romans and Gauls-attain their complete stat ure at twenty-three years of age. In the northwest of France the descend ants of Belgians, Northmen, Flemings and Germans, are not fully grown until they reach the age of twenty six. Dr. Cheron thinks the 18,000 or 19,000 persons exempted yearly for Sdefctient height might well pay their i debft to the State, apd quotes the opinion of Dr. Larrey, a great author- 1 3 ity in such matters, to the effect that a low stature is more often coincident r with a strong constitution than a very t high one. r Colds should be warmed over fre f quently, and sore throats taken in be r fore sun down. Difficulty Between the United o States and Spain. o A special Washington dispatch of lt a late date furnishes the following: : ()fficial advices received by the v government recently indicate that we i are involved in no inconsiderable! difficulty with Slpain, whose officials in Cuba have for sometime shown an n utter indifference to the protection of I the lives and property of American citizens. The Cuban volunteers there " have maltreated Americans and driven them within a recent period out of t Havana. This government aware of this, has repeatedly represented thei condition of afihirs to the anthorities at Madrid, but without any other result than promises of early action which were never fulfilled. As affairs became so threatening at Havanathat the United States Consul General telegraphed that American citizens and officials needed the immediate protection of the government. The matter was brought to the attention of the Cabinet, and an armed fleet of four or five vessels have been ordered with all possible dispatch to Havana, to be placed in immediate cominun .cation with Consul (general Biddle. The commanding officer has received C instructions in case the Cuban voltn teers strike down the life and prop erty of American citizens, to ilrst demand an apology and reparation. If they are refused then he is required to open his guns ont the city of Havana. The gunhoat Nipsic, now at Pensacola, will leave, while the Terror, at Key West, undergoing repairs, has been ordered into com mission, to be dispatched at once to Havana. Also the Kansas has been ordered from the Brooklyn navy-yard to the same destination with all pos sible dispatch, while the Severn and Natasket are already oni their way to the Cuban waters. Admiral Lee, commanding the Southern Atlantic squadron, is now in Washintgton, but was active by I orders of the government in dispatch ing his vessels, sq as to be ready for any emergency. Owing to the rigid censorship over the telegraph at Havana, but little is known here of the inmmediate events which have compelled Consul General Biddle to appeal for assistance, but the condi tion of afftirs with Spain, arising out of the Hornet difficulty and the treat ment of Americans in Cuba, is suffi ciently shown by the diplomatic cor respondence to warrant the govern ment in the startling course it has taken. , -.:= ", 0 I Liberia. li We clip the following from an ex- u change: The British steamship Loando has arrived in the Metsey from the west coast of Africa. Affairs at Monrovia had assumed a serious aspect. Some t time ago a loan was negotiated in En gland for the purpose of constructing t railroads, &c., in Liberia, by which the country could be opened up to C European trade and native enterprise. I When the Loando left Monrovia it y was currently reported that the Pres- t ident and his son were in jail, charged t with having misappropriated upward of £40,000 worth of Liberian bonds. t The following extracts from a mani festo issued by the chiefs of the Exec utive Committee will tend to show the nature of the offense with which 1 the President is charged : " He has contract d a foreign loan, contrary to the law made and provid ed ; and without an act of appropria tion by the Legislature le he has, with his officers, been receiving the pro cceds of that loan. He has ignored a i fundamental principle of the Consti tution, making the executive, legisla- t tive and judicial departments of gov 1 ernment distinct and separate. In vading the courts of justice, h he ha f assumed to dictate the selection of I jurors, thus interfering with the even handed justice of the judiciary. Every Seffort to induce him to desist from his unconstitutional course has been un availing. Threats and entreaties have e been alike lost upon him. He has n turned a deaf ear to the remonstrances 1 from all the counties of the Republic. He has declared the people in a State e of rebellion, and attempted to escape to foreign countries with the officers e of his government, clothed with full power, in order to wield in other Slands a power which at home he had s employed in vain to crush the liber ties of the people." It is added that " the sovereign people did by their resolution in the city of Monrovia, º 1 joined to the resolutions from the e other counties of the Republie, de pose President E. J. Rove from his h l igh office of President of Liberia, and did decree that the government e shall be provisionally conducted by a i chief executive committee of three - members, until the arrival of a consti n tutional officer at the seat of govern - Ineut." A Russian Heiress in Bad Cornm r pany. 3r [From the Albany Knickerbocker.] ir Among the distinguished personages lc who visted police headquarters at Al r- bany on Monday was Mr. Soldatalkoft, at m Russian, who is one of Prince Alexis' nt party. While viewing the objects of ry interest about the rogue's gallery the distinguished foreigner was struck by the face of one of the fbmales in the e- frame. If his recollection served him e- right he knew the woman, and of i course instigated some inqutiries. lp on consulting the book containing the names of the persons represented, it was found that the face identitied by the stranger was set down as Madam Gratowski, which was an alias. She was arrested on the charge of shoplift ing at the stores of several of our mer chants, and after trial was sent to Sing Sing prison for three years and six months. The stranger said the wo man was a native of his country, that her name was Radetsky, and jhe was the daughter of one of the first families of the empire ; and what was more, since her departure, having, by the way, eloped, her farther died, leaving her in immense fortune. Chief ;Maloy and Capt. Hale both recollected the woman well, and her general de scription given by the stranger corres ponded with their impressions exact ly. These officials also assert that the woman served out her time at Sing Sing, but has been arrested within a year, and is now at Sing Sing serving out another term. The stranger made a memorandum of all that the Chief and ('apt. Hale said, and informed those otticers that he would make the fact known to the Prince, who was acquainted with the circumstances connected with the case, and between themn an ettoit would be made to se cure the p)ardon of Madame 1iuletsky. .. . . . - ,,, I. i i, ,i i. . Carpet Baggers. co What the Liberal (Alexandria Va.) m; Citizen says of them :li We have heard much and read much, h] within the last three y(gars, about it "Carpet Baggers," " the Northern Scum," the " gaunt and cadaverous Yankee," and the "bloated and be sotted German," and we have taken a deep interest in the matter, and made B a careful investigation in order to as certain to a certainty at what time, re and fror what country, and from ot what cause this remarkable personage sli originated, and why it is that "' the Southern gentleman ($) elevated in B his instincts, and honored in his line age, looks with inexpressible contempt hl on the New England worshipper of the Almighty dollar, and the pesti ferous German scum, which pollutes t' our laud!" (Extract from a Georgia Democrat paper.) 1I But for an eminent London pub- s lisher, this interesting fact and record of " elevated instinct" and " honored lineage" would have been lost, lost T forever to the world! But thanks to Mr. John Camden, who has made antiquarian works a speciality, and has just published a volume entitled-The -Original List' of Persons of Quality, Emigrants, Re ligious Exiles, Political Rebels, Serv ing Men, Sold for a Term of Years, Apprentices, Children Stolen, Maidens b Pressed, and others who went and who were sent from Great Britain to America in the 17th and 18th centu- c ries. The Work gives the names of i the ships, and other interesting facts compiled from British publhc records; they are of course authentic. From the record we find that, in October, 1732, 68 men and 50 women, " Carpet Baggers," were carried from Newgate to Black Fryars and put on [ board of a lighter to be carried down I the-river to be shipped on board the C('esar, off of Depford, for transporta tion to Virginia. o In January, 1736, 140 " Carpet Bag- d gers," from Newgate and 18 from the t jail at Southwork were sent over. In t May, the same year, 1(06. In 1738, at .n one time. 126. In 1739 were shipped i 127. In 1741 a whole ship-load of c " carpet baggers" were transported. 1 In May, 1747, several large ships I sailed from Liverpool, carrying if all c 1000 " carpet baggers." In 1749 the i ship Laura sailed with 135. In 1754, t Mr. Stewart made a regular contract I to transport " carpet baggers" to c Virginia. e In 1758 were shipped to Virginia, Sfrom Newgate, 63 men and women, ( f and 45 from Southwork; the sanme - ear, also, came 35 men and 50 women. In October, same year, 27 women and 18 men from Newgate. In 1762 were shipped 36 women and 5 men. 1766 Sir Edward Sandays says the British I Governnent sent over 100 ; and S speaking of Maryland and Virginia, he says: " Several of the best plant- I ers, or their ancestors, have in the two colonies, been originally of the 1 (carpet-bag) class." 1 It Mr. Sumner's proposed anendmen to the Constitution, enforcing the One t Term principle, is presented in such la form that a fair discussion on its merits, and not on personal considera ' tions, can hardly be avoided, even by the most perverse. He carefully i guards against any complication, on account of G(en. Grant's aspirations it for re-election, by providing that the amendment shall not take effect till 1873. It being thus plainly impos sible to silence discussion by the able i_ argument that this is the mere trick of Republican traitors to stab the President, we mnay expect to see Mr. Cameron, Mr. Conkling, and Mr. Nye show the folly of the Whig and Demo cratic parties, of Andrew Jackson, Henry Clay, Daniel Webster, Harrison, is Beni. F. Wa(le, and the whole line of 1- worthies cited in Mr. Sumner's learned Ft, preamble. Let us see them grapple is' with the case, and, forced out of all of side issues and personal dodges, go he fairly upon the record. We thank y Mr. Sumner for presenting the issue ie fairly before the holidays, and appeal in to the people to noty the case anmd of keelp wateh of the Sea.aors.-N.. Y. Matilda Heron, The Sad Story of a Woman's Life. Matilda Heron, in the very greatest brilliancy of her career, jbeaicame fas cinated wjth a man who hau gained some reputation as a musician, a conm poser, and leader of an orchestra. It was his music that won her. She loved him and married him becaus,, she loved him. He had other mao tives. It was not her talent, it was not her personal appearance, it was not her kind heart, or good reputa tion which attracted him. It was th, money she had earned and her ability to earn more. It did not take long for the loving but deceived wife to discover this. Harsh things and sor rowful things are quickly forced upon our comprehension in this world. Matilda Heron no sooner became convinced of this than she set about to do what only her own generous, but peculiar, nature could have sug gested. '' He mnarried me for my money," she said to her friends, " and he shall have it." She at once pro ceeded to make over to him in legal form her house, her wardrobe, her diamonds, everything of value which she had in the world. It was in vain that her friends attempted to dis suade her from a course so absurd from a utilitarian point of view. She was obstinate in her purpose, and completed the sacrifice by paying this man $1800 a year rent for the very house which she deeded to him, and which she had paid for with her own hard earned money. Of thishusband, it a sufficient indication of character to say he accepted all this. Matilda Heron had no heart for the stage after this. Shc determined to earn her living by teaching elocution. But pupils were few for the woman who was now poor and obscure. She remnioved from one residence to an other trying to live by economy when she could not work. It was of no use. She was again forced to try. the stage. But grief had made sad havoc with her spirits, time dreadful inroads up on her attractions. "You can never please the public with that figure," said one manager to her. " The public will look only at the heart and brains of Matilda Heron," she said confidently. But her confidence was misplaced. d The public had found new idols and neglected its old favorite. Then she wrote new plays in which she hoped to attract with novelty, One of them a it is remembered, was called "The Belle of Somewhere." " It is an excellent play," said the manager who produced it for her, " but it needs a belle2' ' The next that is heard of this poor R broken-hearted woman is the laugh ing stock of a St. Louis audience, be cause of her misfortunes and the neg f ligence of her manager. They speak ,of her now as '*c.razy," and perhaps they are right. She has certainly had trials and grief enough to make her so.--Ex. 41 -' ,.1., A Scoundrel Well Punished. [From the Lafayette tInd.) Journal, Dec. I2.) From an eye-witness of the later part of the transaction, we have some particulars in relation to the attempted outrage upon the person of the little daughter, seven years old, of Mr. Bush, the Marshal of Attica, on Friday af ternoon. A youug man named Hard man, about twenty years old-a clerk in the employ of Mr. Yerkes, a mer chant of the town-was the criminal. The facts becoming known to Mr. Yerkes, he at once discharged the at- cused, who packed his trunk and had it taken to the depot. About the time the train was due in the evening, Mr. Bush put in an appearance at the depot, armed with a good and sub stantial horsewhip. Meeting the young man, he ordered him to take off his coat and vest, which he did without a word, whereupon Mr. Bush proceeded to lay on with all his might with the whip, every stroke counting and cutting through the shirt into the flesh. Hardman bore the punishment like an abject hound, never opening his head nor uttering a complaint. After becoming tired out, the enraged farther rested and demanded to know why the culprit had done what he did to which the latter gave only incoher ent excuses. Mr. Bush then took a second tilt at him with the whip, which lasted until his strength was again exhausted, the culprit taking it as it as he done before; at the end of which he was ordered to put on his coat and vest, which he did. The felh low's shirt was cut into thin shreds, and the skin of his back was terribly cut and mutilated. The farther's feef: s ings again overcame him, and iae or dered the young man to takle off his 1 coat and vest the seeped time, which She did in abject submission. The e swift and hard blows of the whip this time overeame diin, and he bellowed e like a child,' and finally got down on his knees .p his tormentor, and beg e ged 'formercy. After tiring himself - out the third time, Mr. Bush desisted, ,apd the young man was alloyeil to dress hiuiiself hand go on about hjs bus f ine.s. According to our informant, d the well-merited punishment was wit e nessed by ouite a number of persons L1 ip the depot building, each and every. o one of whom decided that Mr.. B. had k done just right. 1 A lady sometimes keeps charms up d on her watch guard; but it is more important that she jkeep watch an guard upon her chlirms,
