:In order to couiteract and defeal
if possible, the efforts of the Northerr

the existing tariff on foreign sugar
imported to this country, the Louisi

committee to Washington to repre
sent the initerests of this State in
volved in the conlroversy. This cow
mittee is composed of Messrs. Duncan
F. Keuner, John Dymond, John S
Wallis, Timo. M. Cage and TayloI
Beattie, all extensively engaged ii
carne culture and thoroughly conver.
saut withl the details of the impor.
taut subject with which they are re.
quired to deal.
The committee is at the national
capital actively engaged in the per
fouranee of its duties, and there it
much reason to anticipate the success
of its mission. The vital bearing ol
the sugar tariff upon the welfare ol
Louisiana and her people has been
forcibly depicted before the Ways
and Means Committee of the House
of Representatives, and our members
of Congress, acting in concert with
the eminent representatives of the
Sugar Planters' Association, will no
doubt exert their utmost energy and
influence to prevent any revision of
the tariff hurttul to the producers of
domestic sugars.
Such revision would be an act of
grossest injustice on the part of Con
gress-an oppressive discrimination
against our own people in favor of
foreigners, and a blow at an inpor
tent American industry that even now
tests upon a basis none too firm and
is deserving of greater protection
rather than a diminution of that now
The extent to which the belief in
Voudooism prevails among the col
ored people of this part of the coun
try would scarcely be credited by
those who have had no opportunity
for practical observation. Nearly all
these people attend church and peo
fess faith in the doctrines of Chris
tianity, Ibut the precepts of religion,
though decidedly opposed to such an
idea, seem to have no effect upon
the absurd conviction so many of them
entertain that certain persons- gen
erally some old " Guinea nigger " or
morose alln or woman associating
but little with their neighbons-are
endowed with the power of inflicting
injury upon those whom they dislike,
by means of the incantations and se
cret influences pertainiug to astrolo
gy, witchcraft arnd such tomfoolery.
Anu illustration of the widespread
prevalence of this foolish belief is fur
nished by the following card, which
appeared in a recent issue of the

On Tuesday last I was sent by the
Mount Zion Church of N. O., to Franklin
for the purpose of ascertaining if possi
ble the causes whilh led to the mental
derangement of Rev. J. Hayward. After
diligent search I discovered that he was
a victim of Voudon practices, and in the
presence of several citizens of Franklin I
removed from the ground fronting the
church, of which he was pastor, a pack
age containing hnumnli bones, a curious
ly knotted string, hair, silver money, a
sock and several other articles. I feel
certain that the Rev. gentlemnan will
now recover. DR. X. McKAY,
Astrologer of the 19th century.
Rev. James Hayward was at one
time pastor of the St. Peter M. E.
Church at Donaldsonville, and he
has many friends here who would be
glad to hear of his restoration to rca
son. Should this fortunately trans
pire, however, the connection be
tween that circumstance and the ex
cavations accomplished by the won
derful astrologer of tile current cen
tury will be too remote to be dis
cerned in the light of reason, Chris
tianity and enlightenment.
The CHIEF takes pleasure in ac
knowledging receipt of a copy of the
admirable report, for 1879, of Hou.
Win. O. R .gers, Superintendent of the 1
public schools of New Orleans. Mr.
Rogers gives a concise yet exhaustive I
review of the progress and condition
of the school work under his super- I
vision, and the showing is eminently
satisfactory in all respects save two: :
1. The revenues available for the
maintenance of the schools were inad
equate, leaving the Board of Direc
tors without the means to pay the
salaries of their teachers for the last c
tour months of the year ; 2. A marked
decrease in the number of pupils at- I
tending the colored schools, owing
lmainly to the children being required c
to retmain at home and assist their i*
parents in household or other work. u
The new sternwheel steamer Char- P
nier, Capt. Scovell, lecently built for h
the New Orleans and Red River trade, d
took fire and burned to the water's b
edge, on Sunday, the 24th ult., at at
point five miles from the mouth of e
the Atchafalays, on Red river. The f
passengers and officers all escaped, n
but eight of the boat's employes lost
their lives-two chambermaids, two i4
cooks, two cabin boys, a fireman and o
a roustabout. The Charmer's cargo
cousisted of 2105 bales of cotton, and "
was nearly all destroyed. The fire
broke out about 11 o'clock in the a]

national convention which will assem
ble at Chicago, June 12. The dole
gatiou was instructed tostipport Grant
for Presidential nominee and vote as
a unit upon all questions before the
conveution. The New York Repub
licans hold their State convention on
the 25th of t;is mouth, and it is al
most a foregone conclusion that a
Grant delegation will also be chosen
by that body. With New York and
Pennsylvania in the van of the Grant 4
column, it may be expected that many I
of the smaller States will fall into line
in quick succession. The Grant boom
centainly has " the bulge" on all other
booms at this stage of the game. i
The Republican members of the I
Louisiana General Assembly sent a I
telegram to Senator Don Cameron of t
Pennsylvania, congratulating him up- I
on the redemption of his promise that
a Grant delegation should be chosen t
from his State. Just how this action I
is regarded by the Shermauites of the F
New OrleausCustom-House, who wear I
Grant colors to curry favor with their I
constituents, and shout for Sherman I
to keep their places at the public crib, t
is one of the mysteries of political life I
at the metropolis which can not be e
divined by country folk as far from
the metropolis and so completely out
side the ring as we are.
A reliable young gentleman who e
tas just returned from a trip through
the Florida and Red River parishes,
writes us a letter confirming the re
ports which reach us of the revival of l
the Kansas fever among the colored p
people. He says a great many have t
left East Baton Rouge owing to fear
of persecution, and many more are
preparing to go. " Secret organiza- h.
tions in the interior are sending is
anonymous letters, notifying them to
leave the community in twenty days. di
Prominent Democrats are discussing ti
the situation and steps will be taken hi
to suspend these reprehensible pro- pr
ceedings. Planters in West Baton cC
Rouge are offering $20 per month to st
lalorl"rs, an inducement which hash
been accepted to some extent." Our aI
correspondent also reports that de- W
partures from Livingston, Tangipa- s
Ioa ad tihe adjacent region are tak- he
ing place, the movement having beenS S
accelerated by the recent lynching of di
foura colored prisoners at Amite City. ti
Accounts published by the Baton
Rouge papers are clonfirUlmatory of
these advices and show that the cona- of
dition of lhe colored laborinlg classes so
in that section is one of utfer anad no tri
pecedeutedl deamoralization. Witness St
the following from a recent issue of by
the Herald : of
The exodus movement, initiated in our
parish during the last summer and con
tinning quietly up to the present time,
has been renewed. Hundreds have al
ready left since its commencement, and
hundreds more are preparing to follow
at an early period. Some of the largest
and best plantations in the parish which,
in previous years, have always had an
ample supply of excellent labor, are now
without a hand, and their owners are
unable to procure any from any other
quarter. Not alone are our agricultural
interests threatened, but the interests of
our merchants, mechanics, and other
classes of our city. Some of the smaller
retail stores, on account of the loss of
trade upon which they depended for pat
roniage and maintenance, have "shut up
shop " and others who have conducted a
more extensive and important business
are seriously considering and coming to
the conclusion to discontinue here and
seek more inviting and prosperous local
ities. Let this emigration of the labor
inug and productive class continue with
out any rational and judicious effort to
arrest its progress, and another year will
reduce, not only the population, but the
business and wealth of our parish fully
fifty per cent. For all this, the restora
tion of the State Capital and the fabulous
prices that we will receive for cotton, in
the South, when the "darkies" are all
gone, will be but a meagre compensation.
In another article on the same sub
ject, the Herald says:
We are informed that two colored men
living in the vicinity of Jones' Creek, in
this parish, were waited upon last Thulrs
day i.ight, and ordered away from their
homes. They are reported to us as in
lustrious, peaceable and law-abiding cit
izens. And still there are persons who
profess to be ignorant of the cause of the
present and prospective wholesale emi
gration of the blacks from our farms and
parish. It must certainly be admitted
that such things have more to do with
the exodus than the pretty pictures of
Kansas which are said to be distributed
among them by Western land agents.
The one is a tempting invitation, which
may, or may not be accepted, while the
other is a compulsion. Our attention
was called to two similar cases last week,
but refrained from commenting thereon,
preferring to let it pass in silence, as it
is of but little credit to our citizens that
such occurrences should take place under
our present strong government. The cit
izens of this parish may rest assured that
nothing will be so effective in driving,
not only the 40egroes, but capital and
prosperity away from our land.
The politicl status ofithe Herald
bas not been f a very certain or well
defined cha scter, hence there may
te a dispositi n, in certain quarters,
to discredit'its representations in the
exodus question to some extent. The
following gentle suggestion from the
more orthodox Advocate, however,
will go far towards dispelling any
dea that the Herald has been guilty
)f exaggeration :
We would suggest the propriety of a
nesting of merchants and planters of
his parish relative to the cease of a re
'ival of the dissatisfaetion existing
mnong the colored people in some of the
ountry wards. If prompt and wise
aeasures are adopted by the combined
iforts of the merchants and planters, we
elieve confidence will be fully restored

Sl wo.rth.
Can 0 t poaible bthat w hitve
reached th tthauig pd i tin `the ing
series of outrages pe4wetriated in this
State by bloodthirsty bulldosers, and
that henceforth this class of criminals
are to be placed on a par with other
murderers and outlaws and their
crimr.es made equally odious? This
query is suggested by the reports we
reand in the Baton Rouge papers of
public meetings being held and activ
ity being disph~yed by the officers of
the law to unmask and punish the
bulldozers wholhaie recently resumed
operations in that region. It is re
corded that two men who engaged in
the erstwhile patriotic occupation of
burning the cabins of Negroes and
warning the inmates to leave the par
ish under pain of death, have aetually
been arrested and remanded to the
Baton Rouge prison, without benefit
if bail, to await trial before the Dis
trict Court.
It remains to be seen whether the
righteous work of visiting retribution
upon this lawless class has been in
augurated soon enough and will be
prosecuted with sufficient vigor to
nssure protection to the colored peo
le and check the tide of emigration

Hon. Robt. M. Lusher, ex-Superin
endent of Public Education, has our
ranks for a copy of his last annual
eport to the General Assembly, an
hbaustive and admirable document
hat furaishes additional evidence of
Ie fitness of Mr. Lusher to occupy
he position which lie has recently re
inquished to Mr. Fay. The more im
ortant of Mr. Lusher's references to
lie educational work of 1879 and sug
estions for the future are thus briefly
Laimarized by the Opelousas Courier:
As a general thing, the schools have
een better attended, and with more sat
factory results than for many years
ast. Mr. Lusher deplores the insuffi
ieacy of school funds provided for nn
er the new constitution, and its restric
ousupon the maintenance of a liberal
ad efficient system of education. Among
is many valuable suggestions to the
resent Legislature, he recommends the
nutiuuance of competent school inspect
s throughout the various parishes; 1
sting that those parishes that employed
sad teachers or inspectors made a far
otter exhibit of efficient managemnent e
ad progressive improvement than those I
hich failed to do so. And in order to .
rovide a sufficient salary for competent
iperintendeuts in the various parishes,
recommends that the Legislature as

Abe Rotschild, the alleged murderer
of his mistress Bessie Moore, at Jeffer
son. Texas, has been granted a new
trial by Ihe Court of Appeals of that
State. Out of 118 exceptions taken
by Rotschild's counsel to the rulings
of the lower court, only two were con
sidered tenable: 1. A juror was per
mitted to sit in the case who acknowl
edged that lie had formed and ex
pressed the opinion that accused was
guilty, and that unless there was evi
dence contradictory of what lie had
heard of the case, he would still hold
to that belief; 2. The County Attor
ney was permitted to be present dur
ing the time the Grand Jury was de
liberating on the indictment.
Some time ago the editor of the
Ouachita Telegraph deserted his post
and meandered off into the woods,
where he remained several weeks,
ostensibly engaged in the innocent
pastime of hunting and fishing. We
felt confident there was some " she
unauegan " about the matter, and our
opinion is now confirmed by the in
telligence that revenue officers have
discovered several illicit distilleries
in the vicinity where the crafty editor
was wont to pursue the festive chip
munk and angle for the confiding.cat
fish-on paper.
The distress in Ireland is fearful
and daily increasing. Tabular state
ments published in the New York
Herald show that 300,000 people are
in a state of utter destitution, with
no hope of relief save the charity of
the rest of the world. The Herald
has started a relief subscription list,
heading it with $100,000 as its own
contribution. The New OrleansDem
ocrat and Picayune have also opened
lists, each paper giving $500 to begin
with. Similar relief measures are be
ing taken in all parts of the country.
The Donaldsnville CHIEF editor says
he is sorry Hyams was defeated for

Our Vienna friend has erroneously
attributed to the CHIEF a paragraph
which appeared in our columns cred
ited to one of the Clinton papers. We
have expressed regret that Grand
father Hyams failed of an election as

and regard for him to question the
sincerity of his political opinions.
