The conservative element discredited by by compromise, Liberals are taiated with a Warmothean past, old line Whigs a score of years ago were en tirely too virulent, and, all things considered, it is deemed best that the " Narrow Gaugerse should form in a compact phalanx. It is true that many enthusiasts who thirty-five years ago paraded these streets with the typical raccoon and log-eabia, lowg ago took a final journey .out Girod street, but the leaven of their heresy remains, and to quote a very violent metaphor, " stinks in the nostrils of Democracy." The pha lana alluded to, will no doubt be very compact.: It is anticipated that the grand demonstration which is to in dicate an unqualified endorsement of the movement will be at least half a square in length. That trade will in any way be disastrously affected bly their enthusiasm is scouted as a base invention of the enemy. Upon see ond .thoughts they way be right in this conjecture. So compact seems the proposed ,organizatioa destined to be,'that few if any of those inter ested ir. material affairs will find a place within that sacred seclusion. Being a close corporation, with alim. ited number of participant*, the prizes in.this political lottery must of course fail to every member. The vote of Louisiana in the Rlec toraul College has never been estima ted of great importance and rarely effects the national issue. It may be best to divide the Collectorships, MarshalIships and Postmnasterships between the gathering. Including the deputyships and fat clerkships, there would be a place apiece, and for four years at least we might look forward to unalloyed harmony. Goy. Kellogg has been fortusate recently in waking olgcial appoint- t meets that have met with general sat igfactiou awwng both political parties. Whether this arises from the im- ( proved state of public feeling engend ered by the compromise and the cheer- I lug agricultural and commercial pros pects which exist all over the State, or from the really superior character of recent appointees to office, is an ,ppen question. The fact, however, ,is undoubted. The Morehouse Cla?- ~ ,ion of last week-a Demoeratic paper --says: Mr. Samuel W. Belly received last week his commission as Tax Collector of Morehouse parish. While we would liketo see a Democrat in the office, at the suwe time as we can not get one, we can express our satisfac tion with Mr. Rieily. We know that lie is an honest man, and we feel full conidence that under his manage ment the affairs of the Tax Collector's I office will be conducted squarely and safely. The appointment of our old I friend, Maj. E. K. W. Ross--a man universally esteemed here for his cor rectness and upright character-as deputy Collector; gives additional as surance of the future safe manage ment of the business of this office. SAVED THE MULE.-On one of the t Anchor line boats the other day was a young man of decent look, but a i good deal the worse for whiskey. He I persisted in singing at the top of his voice, and it was the poorest kind of singin g. After a brief pause lie removed his hat and said: " Now I'm going to sing something sad." Hadn't you as soon wait until we get to Vicksburg I" inquired a pass coger. " Wh--what f'r I " gasped the yotng man. Because, I've got a young mule on the lower deck, and if lie gets an idea that lie can sing as good as you do he'll never be worth a nickel to bray ! " 'Tihere was no more singing. -1.c.
