Qf this the Republi cans ave elected 58, the Democrats 59,' a d three are classed ts ipdepend oents. It is assumed as certain that qne the latter will vote with the Sepualicanus and one with the Demo eratsfwhile the status of the third is aot si clearly defined; but as he was elect d in opposition to a Democratic cand ate, it is reqsonabiy presumed that ae will cast his influence against that prty. If he does this, it will ive the Republfcans the organiza tionD he importance of which is evi 4ent jhen it is considered that their Elrogrtmme is to adjourn immediately after,ythus frustrating the dishonest and partisan object4 for which the €qouve tion was called. 1 As lefore reported, the popular ma jprityfor the Republicans was from *15,00(to 20,000, and but for the out irgeop apportionment bill passed by the pemocratic Legislature, they wouhi have secured the decided pitt rality pf delegates to which their vot ieg stengthl clearly entitles them. In tie eletion of last year, the Demo crats aCrried North Carolina by a ma jority of 15,000; there has been a chaung of 30,000 in the popular vote, theref e, in favor of the Republican party, which is an encouraging sign and a kplendid record for a single State.

The Ahline for August (Part 20 of the cur rent serbt), conveys more pleasure to a large cirjle of readers and art-lovers-we lIaiy sayýo many thousands of the former, and the dhole array of the latter in Ameri cn-than has ever been imparted by any previous Isue. Not that it excels all for muer issues (though in that regard it is cer tainly mos perfect and welcome)-but that in its appe~rance, so little while after the time vwheilit would have been in our hands, the late dsamity unknown, we have the strongest meauranee that both the motto on one side ofthe cover : " Ex fume, lucts ! " (" From spaoke, light I") and the defiant tiLme-surnundod figure of the Phosenix on time other, mean something practical and de tprmined, .nd mean that at once. Knowing the necessary delicacy of much of the ma chinery aid many of the arrangements made use of in producing so perfect a work of monthly art as the Aklire, there was great reason to .ear that, if the calamity was not stitlicient to break up thl enterprise, we should yet be compelled to endure some months of interval, or the acceptance for a time of sonething very unlike our magnif icent artJurnal. Nothing of the sort, as the appoerance of the August number, only ten days ehind its time, well assures us.

EgIrou CUIn : 4Th country bummers of Democ racy, like jacks in the box, will rise up when the string is pulled, just to let , otsiders know of their where abonte. Alexandria was the scene of 4 peculiar freak on Sunday, August 22nd. The office of the Rapides Gaz ette was disordered, the type scattered, and portions of the press removed. It is almost needless to state the pol itics of the paper, because only one class of newspapers are ever subject ed to such treatment, and press-de stroying, night-raiding bummers have never been claimed by Republicans, or traced to hiding places in their ranks. It requires an organ of the White.League, a sheet of which the Alexandria Democrat is a specimen, to uphold the cause of the bummers, and to apologise for their conduct at the expense of every decent sentiment proper to the occasion. The Demo crat wants people a thousand miles away to believe that Republicans de stroyed one of their own papers for political effect, and tells its home readers that the Gazette was an insig nificant paper and its loss is a matter of small consequence. It is, there fore, difficult to detef.uine which is the greater outrage-the destruction of the Gazette, or the Democrat's de fense of the White League bummers who took a hand in the affair. It is not probable that any thing in the columns of the Gazette could excuse a midnight raid. Ex-Governor J. Mad ison Wells, the owner, may be ob noxious as a Republican, but he is certainly an amiable gentleman. He needs no vindication, while the brain less bummers who sought to annoy him have but added to the lawless re pute of their section, and covered themselves with infamy. The Gaz ette will continue to be published at Alexandria, as it ought to be, and let it be hoped that the dishonest, con temptible allusion of the Democrat to its unfortunate neighbor will not be imitated by any journal in Louisiana laying claim to respectability. Another instance of indignity to the Republican press, is the sacking of the Louisiana State Register and South wecstern Advocate, both published by Amos S. Collins, in Carrollton, a sub urb of New Orleans. The first was the official journal of Jefferson parish, the latter the organ of the M. E. Church North. Tihe office was en tered on Sunday night last, the type pied, headlines carried away, and portions of the type thrown into the street. It is difficult to ascertain the reasons for this act of vandalism, and they must be developed hereafter. Mr. Collins is on a summer tour in the North, and will be surprised to learn that such animosity could have been harbored against him. He is an ex Federal soldiery, a Republican from conviction, and carries in his body the bullets of an honorable battle field as well as the heart of a true gentleman., He is a property holder and a public spirited citizen, yet this is the second time he has been vic timized by a mob while publishing a Republican paper; the first occasion being the destruction of the Register at Marksville, Avoyelles parish, in 1868. A reward is offered for the ap prehension of the guilty parties, but their prosecution should not end in the courts. A generous public opinion, having no party limits, should find expression from one border of the State to the other in condemnation of this barbarous warfare upon the Re publican press. The mobbing of the Southwestern Advocate will be heard from with effect in the North and West where its editor acquired a fair reputation before he contemp!ated a residence in Louisiana, and nothing short of the arrest and conviction of the scoundrels who wrought their yengeance upon it will be accepted as an atonement for the infamous deed. Let some prominent Democrat, or Democratic paper, give voica to honesty and fair play on this point and be assured that it will be prompt ly credited to that party, which is uu questionably responsible for the mob bing of the Ilonter Iliad, Rapides Ga: ette, St. Landry Progress, Attakapas iRegister, Marksville Register, and other Republican journals of this State. Some of them, as was the case with the Iliad and Attakapas Register, were tluice mobbed, the latter under three different proprietorships. It is use less to throw a partisan cloak over the deeds of such offenders. The mobbing of a press is never, strictly speaking a partisan affair, Ibut a direct attack upon the liberties of the peo ple. It can not he sitffered with im punity in an houtable, law -abiding comilOnUitV. The epemies pf the co.qpromise have 14et with one repulse, but am too ngIny an4 active to remawp silept. To what extest they will saucceed in leavening theDemocratic masses of the State we can only surmise. If held in check the pleasures of peace to a people weary of political agita tion may prove insurmountable. It is noteworthy that both the.BudLetin and the Picayune approve the late ac tion of the Democratic Committee in refusing to call a convention which was intended to re-open the smoth ered struggle. It is creditable lead ership. Why the divisions of the M. E. Church Nrth and M. E. Church South, which originated on slavery and dis union sentiment should continue after the great conflict has egn pd, is a sub ject which has attracted much atten tion in and out of the churches inter ested. It is a disagreeable fact to many that any church should bear a sectional name. Christ and Wesley labored neither for North nor South, but for the world, while here in Amer ica their disciples, founding their in stitutions on the same cardinal doc trines, have separated with geograph ical or political boundaries, as if in quest of political and not spiritual power. They have even become harshly antagonistic - denouncing each other-and refusing-the friendly interchange of pulpits, a custom prev alent among many denominations of Christians. The Methodist Church North is zealous in its labors with the colored people as with all races of the world, advances its organization among them, and accepts the black seeking salvation with a cordiality nearly approaching that extended to the white brother. The Church South appears to have drawn a color line and its labors are confined chiefly to one race, which has from the earliest days of its history received an undue exaltation. It affords me pleasure to chronicle a melting away of the sec tional starch in the bosoms of leading divines, and to believe that is more perfect union is a probability in Meth odism. Some time s:ince Rev. Dr. Palmer of the Presbyterian Church stepped across a chasm-from a lead ing white pulpit into a black one-and with his usual eloquence greatly pleased his hearers. Southern divines have stood in the pulpit of Ames Church (North) and the minister of that Church has been received in cir cles elsewhere. The latest intelli gence is that a colored congregation has extended a formal invitation to a Southern minister to occupy the pul pit at some Sunday service, and it is thought it will be accepted.
