Olive Logan spoke about "girls" at Richmond, Va., on the 19th. Olive used to be a girl herself, fifty or sixty years ago. None are so seldom found alone, and are so soon tired of their own compa ny, as those coxcombs who are on the best terms with themselves. The "Fat Contributor" and his wife don't live happy together, he Eays, because she won't let hint spank the children with the thick end of the shiagle. The basis of local prosperity con sists in keeping money in circulation at home. This can be best attained by buying for personal and domestic use of hsine dealers. A Washington doctor asserts that "bald-headed men die young." He probably confounds cause- and effect, and means that those who die young ate apt to become bald. When the last "little event" in a Portsmoutht, Now AManephire, liMuse hold was amnanced by the doctor and nurse, the happy father was buly restrained from suicide by the reflec tion that he would leave twenty-two helpless orphans. A young lady of rather exacting manner, dropped into a store the oth er day to get a switch. After pulling sLad hauling the mniniature horse-tails into an inextricable -jumble, she de elared they were not fit to tie a calf with. The young man inocently in formed her that they sold a different article for that purpose. Thirty de grees below freezing point denotes the cooluess between that couple just now. The recent discovery that sweet fern is a more powerful astringent than hemlock will add greatly to the wealth of Michigan. Tens of thou sands of her acres are covered with this luxuriant vegetable. It is said to yield forty per cent. extract where hemlock yields but fourteen, and is superior to the latter for tanning pur poses. " These Fast astringent fern plantations will tempt another class of mechanics to that State, and lumber men will find tanners their rivals as exporters. KIssix G THE BRIDE.-A stalwart young rustic, who was known as a formidable operator in a " free fight," had just married a blooming and beau tifil country girl only eighteen years of age, and the twain were at a party where a number of young folks of both sexes were enjoying themselves in the good, old-fashioned pawn-playing style. Every girl in the room had been called out and kissed except Mrs. B- , the beautiful young bride aforesaid; and although there was not a youngster present who was not "dying" to taste her lips, they were restrained by the presence of her Her culean husband, who stood regarding the party with a look of sullen dissat isfaction. They mistook the cause of his anger, however; for suddenly rol ling up his sleeves, he stepped into the middle of the room, and, in a tone of voice that at once secured attention, said: " Gentlemen, I have been noticing how things have been working here for some length of time, and I ain't half satisfied. I doa't want to raise a fuss.; but-" " What's the matter, John !" in quired half a dozen voices. "What do you mean t Have we done any thing to hurt your feelings !" "Yes, yoP have, all; all of you have hurt my feelings, and I've got just this to say about it; here's every gal in the room been kissed mighty nigh a dozen times a piece, and there's my wife, who I consider as likely as any one of 'em, has not had a single one to-night; anmd I just tell you now, if she don't get as many kisses the bal ance of the time as any gal in the room, the man that slights her has got me to fight-that's all. Now go ahlead with % our playj ! " U. S. Iarskal Packard. [From the Iberville Pioneer and News.] t To S. B. Packard Republicanism in Louisiana owes more.for its stability and progress than to any other man in existence. That the Republican ele ment in the State so believes is attested in the fact that never since the hour Reconstruction was consummated in our borders, has he been permitted to vacate the chair of the Central Com mittee; that the National Government is equally persuaded, appears in his recently renewed tenure of its Mar shalship for a district whose tumults and anarchy are notorious and would long since have ruined the State but for. his firm executive hand. Quiet and almost stolid in manner, none would suspect the great reserves and energies latent in him. He courts no deference from men but unconsciously commands it to an extraordinary degree. Whenever a critical issue has arisen in politics, Republican leaders instinctively have sought him, they make their own sor ties but in the face of a desperate con flict, their faith in a successful result and in his generalship is one. When Democratic Gen. Buchanan strove to obstruct the installation of the State ticket elected in 1868, it was chairman Packard of tim Registration Board that challenged and thwarted the scheme; when H. C. Warmoth sought to win and disgrace the chair of the '70 Convention as he had already dis graced thie gubernatorial chair, it was delegate Packard that resolutely coin batted his pretensions and rallied the Convention to the triumphant election of Oscar J. Dunn; when in '71 War moth, vindictive because of this fail ure and alarmed at the manifest pow er and tact of his antagonist, sought to daunt the State Convention by menaces of blood, it was U. S. Mar shal Packard that threw open the doors of a vacant Courtroom, afforded asylum to the imperiled delegates, again baffled the vicious Governor and rescued not only the lives of two hundred men but the party itself from destruction. Until the retreat of Warmioth to Cincinnati last summer it had been a wrestle of giants. War mroth, quick-witted, unscrupulous and t possessed of extraordinary patronage to tempt apt and numerous followers; Packard, with neither patronage nor mobs at his command and reticent and unpretending; these were the two amen sworn each to end his battle but in the fall of the other-the former's imotives being revenge and ambition; the latter's, the comrservation of the Republican party. W1armoth has been acclaimed by sonime for his political talents, but what should that be 0 called, which despite all his disad vantages, natural and official, could not only smite him down to the dust, g disperse his army of folhiwers and send him skulking into another party, wlihemin another uniform and with Democratic reinforcements he waged again his revengeful contest with as If sorry success? We conceive that after his cha'stisc t ment by Chairman Packard in both the parties to which Warnioth had re e course, the humiliated ex-Governor . must regret he did not surrender all pretensions as a politician, entitled by talent and by claims upon public faith it to leadership in Louisiana, long before he provoked the contest so fatal to him. " Plague on't; and I thought h he had been valiant and so cunning in d fence, I'd have seen him damned ere SI'd have challenged him," said Sir A..dr~rw A msw~hnalr After every victory achieved by Packard, he seemed in his undemon strative way to have concluded a task scarcely more serious than spanking an undutiful boy. The undeniable vigor of the spanking, however, stood disclosed in the painful political wrig gles of the Governor long thereafter. Mr. Packard evidently measured his man, long before the man himself sur mised it; he promised the party to rid it of his pest and he has done this so effectually that Louisiana has morally planted a tombstone over her late re creant steward forever. And here let us say-and our party brethren will concur with us-that Mr. Packard pro mises nothing he does not mean to do. He makes no allowance for breakage in his pledges. And as this noble trait is the key to the honor in which he is popularly and privately held, we rec ommend the example to some others of our public officials as worthy of ex periment. Not to promise and for rea sons that will suffice a reasonable man, may disappoint but does not estrange him nor forfeit his confidence. To pro mise hastily and then deny, does more than disappoint; it sacrifices esteem. The regard with which Mr. Packard is cherished not only by 80,000 Repiub licans but by tens of thousands of Democrats, as an honest man, is a nobler thing to earn than any dozen offices in Louisiana or out of it. But we have reason to rejoice that he is not only the President of our Central Committee, but the immediate arm of the National Governmeut here as our Marshal. In the country par ishes of the State there are frequent outrages upon the rights of United States citizens and we would like to see the warrant which lie will fail upoun occasion to serve. No greater compliment could have been paid him and no more careful Preed could have been exhibited for our interests here, than in his contin uance by the President in the Mar shalship of Louisiana for another ` term. The antgry temper of a certain ele ment of the State and the cruelty it too often practised upon colored men was well known to the administration -fidelity in the Marshal upon the scene was vital and that fidelity Mr. Packard had continuously revealed, and the more carefully for being him self a professional lawyer. Had any 1 other citizen in the 8tate-we care not who-been accredited to his place by the new administration, we are satis fied that the entire Republican party here would have remonstrated ex haustively against such successor. Mr. Packard is of large stature, compactly padded with flesh. He seems just to have escaped obesity, but na ture has distributed his material for a large belly somewhat symmetrically about his frame. His foot falls with a tread that betrays both vigor and will, and we conjecture that a grip of his broad hand would speedily dispel all doubt of those traits. In fact, the man is well symbolized in his hand ; a kind frank hand but capable on demand as an inconvenient fist. There is some thing in his eye that notably eminpha sizes this idea-and we believe indeed that there has as yet been little drain on his wonderful reserves of power, despite the memorable efforts he has projected so successfully in behalf of Louisiana. He is the General Gee. H. Thomas of Louisiana politics, and like that officer has never lost a battle. A Young Woman. The Rev. J. F. Ware of Boston preached about women, the other day. This is his picture of a young woman: Let nme try to sketch the young and simple, unpervertld girl at the point when she begins to live-becomes somewhat her own mistress, law, guide-then show something of the relations and obligations which de volve upon her. Not necessarily pret ty, frank, joyous and warm of heart, life is to her a sunny day. Free from care, tenderly sheltered, inhaling an atmosphere of love, her thoughts come and go unquestioned and un checked. Her sky is clear and she hears no muttered prophecy of storm ; or if, now and then, trouble, like an April cloud, comes up, so like an April cloud it passes, and her day is the brighter for her tears. Thinking in her heart no evil, she thinks there is no evil in the hearts of others, and with trusting confidence and winning sympathy lends herself to the wants and woes as well as to the successes and joys of others, her swift inmagin atioir wearing in the brighter colors where the sober fact would give a grave tone. Respecting herself, she I respects others; and reverencing the truth, she is found its handmaid. Her glad affections run out and embrace I all things, and into what she does she throws a heartiness of will and inter i est that rejoices hearts worn and wea ry with the strivings and falseness of the world. She knows nothing of I proportions, can do nothing moder s ately. Everywhere and about every thing she is the most provoking of enthusiasts, her flashing eyes andm i quick bounding pulse all betraying the earnest spirit underneath. Quick r to feel, she is quick to chasten and I subdue emotion, her smile chasing the r tear-drop as the flashing sunlight cha t ses the summnwer shower, while for in e jury she has swift forgiveness, and o wipes out all memory of evil against t herself; and though in the first vehe n inence of her anger she may threaten e never to forgive, forgiveness conies r unasked and often undeserved. Somne what impetuous, if She would, so gracefully she heals that n.e might ahlost think her wound a trick to show her grace in healing. Daring in danger because ignorant, her foot I will tread where man's brain fails, and she will go intact, because of her innocence, among perils a mature judgment would not brave. Duty" call her and she is ready, not of her self will she think where her afiec tions are, but a very narrow way will tread and a very heavy burden bear. Buoyant in movement as in spirits, her light step, her early song, her merry laugh, make home glad, and over her homeliest duties cast a charm that makes even servile labors shine. As her arms clasp themselves about the forms of those she loves, so her affections and her labors twine them selves about their hearts. She makes all glad, her winning ways, her high morality, her quiet sympathy, her faithful love, revealing the possibili ties of her womanhood, and making one sigh that even .a into paradise there came the disturbing spirit, so too often in among these harmonies shall that same spirit steal. With her, faith is sentiment rather, perhaps, than principle, yet a joy and support. She has her places and her times for reflection and for prayer, and schools herself to the orderings of the higher will. No tender Madonna gaze more pure and satisfying than her upward look of trust; no weeping Mary more quickly, really penitent, more sin cerely contrite. These are some of the virtues, or germs of virtues, better than mere charms with which a young girl emer ges from an unspoiled girlhood, clad in which she stands, drawing all hearts toward her-a creature all loveliness and hope-at the mysterious thres hold of life. These are tmhe advanta ges with which she starts in her ca reer, the means of an increasing hap piness and a constant usefulness. An Ohio man advertises for "a wo man to wash, iron. and milk one or two cows." Rattlesaskes. The rattlesnake is perhaps the most sluggish of all the serpent tribe, for d even the puff-adder of the Cape, which has that reputation in general, is very 3 active when enraged; but the rattle snake, excepting just after and just 3 befaqe its winter sleep, never bites a except in self-defense, and does not go out of its way to attack any one. Unless molested, there is very lige to fear from this snake; but the mW fortune is that you can not tell when you are going to molest it, as in com ing down a bluff, or picking your way in a gully, you may, with the best in tentions in the world, put your foot on a rattlesnake. And then the ter rifle swiftness of a'dart! Not even the cobra, which I had always considered rivaled the very lightning in its move ments-movements which I will defy any European eye to follow-is quick- c er than the rattlesnake in that one deadly act! Yet, to strike, it must I be in a close coil, its head and neck c being erect : it throws itself out about three-fourths of its lenghth, support- e ing its weight entirely on its tail I part. I have, however, known two persons who have trodden on rattle- 1 snakes and have escaped ;' a third, as I will be seen, was still more remarka bly fortunate. One, a gentleman who has killed more than fifty of them, recognized what his foot touched with out stopping to look, and jumped i higher than he had probably ever done before in his life ; the other was not so quick, and the reptile struck him three times with electric-quickness, but his trowsers and long boots saved him. This disposes of a fallacy very generally held that venomous ser pents will not bite twice in succession; I there were the threepair of fang marks quite plainly to be seen on his white trowsers. One young man who was bathing in the river Platte had a more extraordinary escape still, for, on emerging from the water, he sat down being, of course, completely naked, on a rattlesnake which was basking in the grass. Whether lie sat on the rep tile's head, or whether the creature was too astonished by his sudden de scent, can never be known, but cer tainit is that that the affrighted bather I eaped up with a shriek, and escaped unhurt. It is told that this particular ser pent has a very offensive odor when Sirritated, and that Dr. Hamilton Roe owed his life to a knowledge of that fact. The physician having opened a box directed to the superintendent of the Zoological Gardens London, put his hand-most rashly, it seems to me --under the dry moss which appeared, to see what was there. He touched e something alive, and the smell told e him it was a rattlesnake. Had he withdrawn his hand rapidly, he would have been bitten. to a certainty; but ,f he had the presence of mind to stroke ,f the reptile, which allowed him to take his hand gently away. This is a well y known story ; I only refer to it to add ºf that this odor is so powerful and per d manent that lwhen a snake irritated, g and made to bite the rake or hoe with k which it is intended to kill him-and, I as may be supposed, this is very often e done-the implement will retain the same unpleasant smell for months. Once known, it is always recognlliza d ble. As much can not be said of the sound of the rattle. I have been on the t prairie when opinions have been di vided as to whether a certain ominous clicking arose fronm the grasshoppers, I which were there in great numbers, or a rattlesnake. It is not pleasant, I at twilight, to have any doubt on this subject. The chief thing against the rattlesnake theory was that these rep tiles seldom move or leave their holes after sundown. But I would warn the reader not to depend too much on 4 this, as some snakes are certainly of irregular habits, and have been known to crawl into tents, and into beds within the tents. 'This was for the sake of warmth. Very often the rep tiles will content themselves with coming ilside ; and so true is it that use doth breed a habit in a man that I have known men sleep quietly all through the night when they were perfectly aware that a rattlesnake was within the walls of their tent. They rolled themselves tight in the blanket, knowing that the creature would not touch any one if it were not first at tacked, and that, when the light came, it would go away. In one instance a man was bitten at night. He was on the prairie, and sleeping near his horse, which was fastened by a long rope to a log or stone. The horse broke away, and the man feeling after the rope in the grass, disturbed a rat tlesnake, which bit him on the back of the hand. He was cured by a rem edy which I think I have seen recomn mended elsewhere. A friend cut with a penknife the skin around the punc ture, so as to enlarge the wound and make it bleed; then he put on a small heap of gunpowder on the spot, ignited it-no pain attending this-and the man was cured. I would just add here that the stranger must not de pend on always hearing the rattle I when the snake moves; it is violently shaken when the snake is alarmed, or is about to attack, and then the warn ing and assault are too close together for the victim to escape. The rattle has been too often de - scribed to need much,to be said about it here; it is known to consist of a number of bones, looking like small Sknuckle-hones, securely fastened to r gether, yet so loosely that they make a • clicking' noise when shaken. These grow on to the tail of the rep tile; and the popular belief is that the first joint, which is always of a darker color than the others, takes two I years to grow, while afterward the snake has an additional joint each year. Some observers contest this, 7 and argue that the reptile forms its A rattle much faster than at this rate. I The wearing of this rattle in the hat or bonnet is said to be an infallible v specific against the headache and is r frequently worn on that account.- 1 Harper's Weekly. - t Serio-Poltieal Comedy.

We have been t constantly improving on the society and forte of government of our fore fathers, and we have fourth of July orations once every year. The State of Louisiana is located in the extreme southern portion of the greatest re* public the world ever saw, too fir South to grow cold, too far from the cold to be temperate. In tri locality we originate, conduct and 14 an outside power end some of thb most serious political comedies under the sun. If it were not enough to originate i a half dozen wars of factions, with .Governors, Lieut.-Governors, and a 1 Speaker of the House as chief bruis ers, the firing on the Court-House and the late Attakapas disturbance ought to cap the climax. Louisiana has about established her reputation for getting up the quickest, most cause I less revolutions in the world. And the comic part comes in at the close, when a few, funerals, damaged gun shops, ruined railroads and bankrupt smerchants serve to show that our boys still live! It was not enough in Louisiana to be told that all the courts of the State and all the powers of the United States - would be used to enforce the authority B of W. P. Kellogg--just tll that to the - marines. It milht satisfy the ueople - of Maine, Illinois or California, bat r our boys are patriots; they don't be I liove there is any power in existenep to stand in the way of their little frol ics until it throws them postrate as Spancakes on a griddle, which proceed e ing they at once discover to be uneon t stitutional. The Piccayune quotes a a decision of the Supreme Court in the if great case Smith vs. Jones, or proves t that General Jackson didn't say same e thing he did say, and our boys are as I, happy as clams. d The Metropolitans, to the numler d of one hundred and fifty, went over to e Livingston to tight, with, a canoon and d Winchester rifles. They were actually t met by a committee of welcome, and e after the offices were divided to the e satisfaction of all parties, the war in II Livingston died antd cannon, rifles and d police camne home again as from a hol iday excursion. It only cost the State I. $2000 or $3000 to settle the claim to i three offices! Republican officials were returned t as elected in St. Martin parish by both boards. What difference did that make 7 There were some men in St. Martin who didn't get any office, and they knew they were not elected, and not content with a judicial remedy they aroused their friends far and near. 1 Colonel DeBlanc was the commander of a body of gallant citizens on frisky mustangs. General Badger command- i ed Metropolitans with blue coats and remained in possession of the Court- 1 House. DeBlanc was reinforced by more mustangs daily, until he found it necessary to take up his quarters three miles away from Badger, in a small sized swamp with big sized mos quitoes, where nobody could reach him, and consequently nobody could drive him out. And thus the war of vengeance against Kellogg com menced. And the scratching of pens in city editorial rooms, the sparks of electric thought from the country tel egraph operators, was fearful to be hold! The people grew wild. They surrounded Clay statue, they sym pathized with Colonel DeBlanc, they almost burst with enthusiasm. Clay statue remained indifferent, but Laf ayette square shook. The gun shops poured out their supplies, but no rein forcements for DeBlanc. A city dray was mistaken fora battery of artillery, and the last spark of fight oozed away. The United States steps in. Colonel DeBlanc and his associates will be arrested, and no doubt proceeded against under the laws they have vio lated. This could have been seen from the first, for it is the inevitable result of rebellion to authority de facto or de jure, as the case may be. We regret that Colonel DeBlanec is in his present position, for he can't be upheld by any class of men who desire the business prosperity of Louisiana. The remedies for misrule lie alone in the courts, and an appeal to arms accom plishes nothing one way or another except it be to increase the intolerance " of a dominant political party, and to depress every branch of trade and security of the State. It is about time our people learned something from the sad school of experience, and re fused to countenance the shallow plots of wild schemers. It is safe to say that DeBlanc's resistance to authority Scosts Attakapas and New Orleans a round million! Strange that a man's feet should be dry when there are creek's running through his boots.
