To any person procuring us six pre paying yearly subscribers for the CHIEF we will send a copy of the pa per for one year free of charge. Pere Hyacinthe Loyson, a Catholic priest of tote, was married in Paris on the 3rd inst, to Mrs. Emilie J. Mer riuan, a native of New York. Francis Kernan and Chauncey M. Depew were nominated for Governor and Lieut. Governor at the Liberal Republican and Democratic Conven tions whioh assembled recently in Syracuse, N. Y. Gov. W1 armoth has severed his con nection \vith the board of managers of the New Orleans Rtepublican, and that journal has evidently taken one of the roads that leads from Greeley to Grant and Kellogg. We have a iavor to ask of the edi tors of the Madison Jmtrial. It is, that when they again pay us the copl pliment of extracting an editorial ar ticle froth our columns they will affix the usual credit and not give it as originaml with themselves. Governor Warmoth left New Or leans last week for Franklin, La., where he joined a party consisting of Messrs. John McEnery, D. B. Penn, George A. lheridan, E. WVaggaman and others, and together they are making %eampaign tour of the State. Evertwhlere Governor Warmoth ap pears he is the lion of the' day, his j presence and eloquent speeches cre- 4 ating more enthusianm among the peo ple than those of all of his companions put together. The G;overnor is sup porting the Fuaiiop State ticket right jewrtily. - e io' the PFusion :Stae ticket i .e be l our c uns this q. rreassas s ati ou es, and we hope 'as much so to Sour readers. In the first place, while the New. Orleans papers are paid for inserting the ticket as fyr an advertisement, t Cinitr~ must do it ratuitously or not at all. We choose the latter al ternatire. Secondly, we intiniated in a pre vious. article, the :ticket is by no inei4n such a one 'as we desired to see chosen, aiud does not represent the intent or spirit of the National Liberal movement, which we support. The CHIEF is, ,a it claims to be, a Liberal ltepublicaa newspaper, and hence can .not consistently lend its undivided efforts to secure the success of candidates who stand upon a Democratic platform of principles enuncia ed by the Democratic Cen t nunnTittee,. The h of our refusing adherence to the F'usi icket as a whole, must not be construe indicating that we X11 support the o ticket. Our Peaon with regir( a l State and pari'5ftairs is aimiag s. There t are nen\,n both tickets , T.er respect anOIIii.e, m we .4 w cl ire, and whose succe 1 for conscientiousty . and heartily, antb ae also nmn i upon both tickets` r should regard as indic. election we a lie good. q ofno pub- a D)uring the present liolit paign the CHuEF will continue am- 1P - herence to the cause of National .a- n Seral Republicanism, as representeor by the Greeley and Brown ticket, but as regards other matters will endeavor to be aln independent journal, impar tial and reliable in all things. Regretting that causes have arisen which compel us to stand upon this comparatively 'neutral ground, we nevertheless occupy it with a firm conviction that ou: course is right. as it is certainly taken in accordanct& with the dictates of our conscience. Lieutenanit GovernorPinchback was so badly beaten by Gov. \Warmnoth upon the railroad that lie has tak;eli to traveling on steamboats. Acconla. nied by a party of eminent Republi can orators, the Lieut. Governor left New Orleans on the steamer Frazer last week, to visit the river parishes of the St'ate and address the people upon the political issues. Mr. Pinch Black is a man of undoubted influence among the people of his race, and wherever he speaks they will flock around 'the standard he upholds. We had hoped, a short time siilce, to see Pinchback stumping the State as the candidate for Lieutenant Governor t or Congressman at large upon a Lib eral Republican State ticket, but des tiny. had not so ruled it. Wherever lie may go, and whatever side of the political questions hei may espouse, c Mr. Pinchback will always possess a fair share of our ad(liration and re- J spect, for he is a man of genius and t talent-as such the first of his race in i Louisiana. - That was a sensible move on the part of the Repubiicau State Execu tive Committee, displacing do-nothing Darrall from the Cougressional ticket for this district and substituting Hon. Thos. Noland of Iberville as the can didate. ,We do not regard MIr. Noland as'eminently fit for the position, but lie is preferable to Darrall. However, as the C'ustom-House element of the Republican party of the district shows some sign of repudiating the action of the coummittee, it is very likely tlht Mr. A. Mouton, the Fusion moInince, will be elected, and" we will then have a representative who is at least nala ble. -------------- Honest old Horace Greeley is mak ing a tour of the West, and is now delighting the people of Indiana with some splendil speeches upon the p1o litycal situation. The hoary patriot and statesman is everywhe re received with splendid ovations and the great est popular enthusiasm. The ladies hug and ksss him, while the mei res pond to :is words of eloquence and wisdom with wild cheers of approval which will Iresond thronughout the nation on the fifth day of November next. We notice that the Liberal and Dl)emocratic parties in many parishes of the State have failed to etft. t a fiu sion upon parish issues anid no)minate joint tickets, each party putting can didates in the field. The consequence of this will be a Republican majority in the Legislatrce bhiyold all hazard. It occurs to us that now is a good time to S11hscribe flo the (' m.r'. lepod's i aga zi ifRt r `ip pears th an enti liy . cl. ad ding eiew tive, an uprof ,e- S ,. aidg am m i hancminer ezu As usual, its contents araefes rightly, and inter oting. "Lo ft bor not Lost" is the first of a si °Es arti cles in which Gail Hamil roposes to discuss the love and hotl d sat rimzoial ·questio- ar Uie world's material work b to man, while its moral work be to wo man. The "Wondilli b er" is a tale descriptive of squatter fe, stock growing and romnance in nustralia. 'An Adventure" narrates thrilling incident of travel in South , be tween Rome and Naples, poious to the establishmeat of railins. In "Something Alout Epidem s," we get an idea of what they are where they come'from, and how the; disap pear. "Only an Old Story" ilhstrates the folly of falling in love wth your mother's summdr boarder, "Poor tlen erhmasett," describes thelife and misfortunes of a man endowed with much money' and little brains. In "'Matrimony," we get an idea of the awful consequences of wedding with out mating-of uniting the hands of those whose tastes and aspirations are incompatible. " Grandmothey.'s Pocket" is always filled with goodies for the children, and its author, Mrs. eyster, is a veritable grandmother, and the stories she tells are mostly lout her own little pets. "A High Aim" is a pleasing story about a very )oor boy who beeamne a distinguished nmil because he had a purpose in life.
