We present herewith in extract from a.reoent editorial article which r appeared in the Shreveport Theea and which has excited moth comment from tho press in all sections of the countr, as exceeding in venom and lyirbaric instinct any thing yet pee po posed by the oigens of the White Leanie fqr, obtaining supremacy in the Louisianagoverneiento Such out, so vice to the cause. of Republlicanlsm D0 than the most elaborate arguments in ita A*tApk tand defease eould se cowplis4 ghe cannailojistic Ziq a says: We have no appeals to ma'e to our fellow-citizens of New Orleans; we ar know that the men of the fourteenth of Septetiiber will do their whole duty )o as freemen and Louisianians zealous wo of their liberties. But throughout A the country parishes there should be w concert of action, and that action io' should be prompt and emphatic. In JO every parish where the officers elected by the people may be counted out o by the Returning Board, the people should use hemp or -ball on the do feated caudidates counted in. To lo calize the proposition: If George L. h Smith is counted in over W. M. Levy, or if Twitchell is counted in over ,g Elam, lot Smith and Twitchell be killed; if Johnson and Tyler, in De Soto, are counted in over Scales and A Schuler,.as the New Orleans liepub licaa thinks, or if Keeting, Levisee and Johqgsin', in Caddo, are counted in over Vanglan, Horas anid Laud, then let Johnson, Tyler, Keeting Le visee and Johnson be killed; and so let every officer, from Congressman down to constable, in every district and parish in the .,State, be served whom the people have defeated and whom the returning board n may " cottat in;" Commenting upon the above, the I Cleveland Leader, ay s There is an editor in Shreveport who should have lived in the Canui- 1 bal Isliumas 4uring some generation i far back in the uight of time. Lou isiana and the nineteenth century are 4 neither uis place nor time. He should I hayveliv.d hieqgetfos ae,1g lye q 1 apd wherethe hoarse raven -coukldaa*w crtede his fittul emtratdt* ''itflWI household. He is pot 4gle, of j-our there `nigger" siiooers. He takes a higher kind of, ame and roposes thes s overy id Rdl" '+ b hip a .I elared elected to Congress be assas sinated. If the New York Her1o41 i could only get this editor and turn r hinuloose upon the people it would make a far greater sensation than was i uitade by letting loose the wild ani ,.e*lanpon the populace. The Chicago Inter-Ocean also has something to say upon the subject: If the State Board of Canv;.saea, sitting at Sp$iuiileld, shouhi reitniu Caster IH. HM..fi on and Barney Caal, field as elected io the Forty-fourth Congsaes,ywhat wild file people of Illinois thinh of a proponition to kill those getilemen ? Don't bualpimed. We are nor. se8 iousl v suggestieg the assassinaatiou of the eminent patriots above referred to. But suppose for a moment that we weae. And sup pose that, there were fools and cut throats enough in Clicago to follow our advice. ° WiAt then ? Ndw let us quote from the Shluveport (Lou isiana) Theses of Noven ber 15th: " We should simply give the meem lrws of that board (tile Returning Board) to distinctly naiderstand that, unless they return the elections a. they wele retucred at tlhe polls, they and those that seeu to ' count in ' will lrty the forfeit with their lives. To ,localize the proposition : If George L. Smith is counted in over W. M. Levy, or if Twitcbell is counted in over Elam, let Smith and Twitchel le killed; ifJohnson and Tyler, ,iv I)e Soto are countted in qver Scalsa 1 and die Ier, its the ?e*' Orle;ans RejJblican thinks, or if Keeinmg. Levisee and Johnson, in Caddo, are counted iii over Vaughan, Horan and Laud, then let Johnson. Tjlsr, Keet ing, Levisee and Johnson be kiilld." 'lihe immnedse cause of this ;great is the rumor imat the Returning Board will throw oat some precincts on the ground of fraud. Of course, it wrongfullv rejected, the caunddates affected have their remedy in the 1 courts ; lms instead Mf this, ear while I confessing that intimidation was ex ercised at the polls, *he- raes advises reprder if these frauds ate taken no-.." tite of try tie Returning Board. . We suppose there are laws in Lou isiana to punish those who thus con nive at murder; and this fellow ought to spend a couple of years with a fall and chain attached to his leg, and for the first time In his worthless life be made to do the State some service. Rut iW ¶ife :statates f t.m:'t Sta.e afford no iehef, or If, as is no. e pr@1lb'e, an attempted prosecutiom in the State corrts would be resisted, then we call attention to the nine- , teenti section of the enforecwent art, which this writer is violatirg, and suggest his artiesf and punish inent, tuifer it. This is a duty which the authorities owe to order I and law everywhere, and it should 1 not be delayed. It is, besides, the 1 only argument which such men can 1 I appreciate.

Hearty Suppers. Eating a hearty meal at the close of the Cay is like giving a laboring man O tMgll.day's Work to do just as night sets in; although he has been toiling all- day. The whole body is fatigued when night sets in, the stom ach takes its due shire, And to eat heartily at supper and their go to bed is giving all the other portiops and functions of the body repose, while the stomach has thrown upon it four or live hours more of additional work, after having already lathored four or five hours to dispose of breakfast, and a still longer time for dinner. This ten or twelve hours of almost inces sent work has nearly exhausted its power; it can not promptly digest another full areal, but labors at is for long ioris together, like an exhausted galley-slave on a newly imposed task. The result is that by the unnatural length of time which the food is kept in the stomach, and the iwperfect manner in which the exhausted orgtan ihanages it, it becomes more or fess acid; this generates wind, this presses up itself against the more yielding lungs, contining them to a largely diminisred space; thence evere' breath taken is insufficient for t)e wants of the system, the blood be comes toul, black, and thick, refuses to flow, and the nan (lies, or in delir iurn or fright leaps from a window, or coimiits suicide. Let any reader who follows an. in active life for the wmot part, try the expeliuent for a week of eating ab solutely nothing after a one or two o'clock dinner, and see if a sounder sleep and a vigorous appetite for breakfast and a hearty dinner are not the pleasurable results, to say noth ing of the happy deliverance from that disagretcable fullness, weighty oppremion, or acidity which attends over-eating. The grat reonoating and vivacity which a longs delicious, and connecting sleep imparts, botl tU. mind and body, will of themselves more than conpensatq for the certain ly short and rather dubious pleasure of eati yg a supper with no special rel ish.-Seieuce of healti,.
