The CHIEF having recently repro duced from the Sparta Times a syn opsis of a speech made by Hon. T. J. Butler, Representative from Bienville parish, in which very severe reflec tions upon Speaker Ogden occurred, we deem it only fair to publish the following card from Mr. Ogden which appears in the New Orleans papers of yesterday : New ORLEANS, Sept. 1, 1880. To the Editor of the Vindicator: My attention has just been called to a speech made by Butler of Bien ville, and published in the Sparta Times, in which, without cause or provocation, he assails my personal character in language consonant with his breeding. Under ordinary circumstances, I should leave him unnoticed; but the unfortunate prominence the good peo ple of Bienville have given him, to getiler with the fact that respectable journals are publishing his billings gate, render it necessary, in justice to those who do not know mile, to brand him as a malicious liar. The charge that I was in the habit of inebriating myself when presiding officer of the House, or that lie ever plopounded any questions to tme, is absurdly false. Were it necessary, I could call on honorable gentlemen, members of the House, who, while they differed from me on many im portant measures, are too knightly to degrade themselves by slanderous fal.ehlood, to prove that I presided always withl dignity and fairness. The only time lthat Butler ever saw me touch a drop, and then of wine, was while lie was enjoying my hospi tality, at my own table, with my own family and friends. He will recollect the occasion as the one from which a "private" conversation was betrayed and misrepresented by him for the purpose of cheap notoriety. He was compelled afterwards to explain his misrepresentations. The resolution comlliulentiug 1ne for my dignity and impartiality as the presidinlg officer of tahe house, inltroduced by the Honl. John S. Ililliu of Lafournchei, a gentle ma of the highest character, and nilm opponent for the Speakership, anad unaninmolusly adopted, as will be seen by reference to thile journal, refultes the charges on this point made by Butler. His statement in reference to the renmaldk said to have been uttered by Gen. F. N. Ogden, derogatory to me. is aisfalse as his ,tlthr assertions, and I hIla V Geni. O)gden''s " oini a" suralice that no such language was ever used by hilu in clinnectiii with miy name. Butler is ioni-' of those who under stanids the safety of distance.

Acklre, New Orleans, La. Dear Sir-Since our return from I Morgan City, my mind has become possessed with some incontrollable in Stfluence, prompting me to study what I had done, and urging on my part, serious, very serious, reflection, before proceeding any further. I have pondered and pondered over our action ever since, only to realize the silent whisperings of my cons cience-that we are bolters. In the excitement and first flush of the moment, acting under a misappre hension, I deserted the floor of the rightfully constituted Convention, and followed the bolt, for bolt it is, my dear sir, and nothing else. In so doing, I have committed a grave and serious error, the enormity of whicn has become to my mind per fectly awful. As humiliating as it is, I feel that a candid confession is the only course now left for me to pursue; and regarding candor the true basis of friendship, it becomes my paramount duty to say to you that I cannot follow your lead. That Gen. John S. Billiu is the party nominee,I now appreciate fully. Whatever may have been my misapprehension at Morgan City, my entire support must now be given to Gen. Billin; and on account of the very error I have committed, it behooves me now, more than ever, to redouble my zeal and energy in his behalf. Can you not my dear friend, do like wise I Can you not, also, acknowledge the influence of some infernal passion that led us to such a course ? Your true friends are all pained and I must say, greatly disappointed at the course you have taken. While it is yet time, sacrifice a little ambition and abandon a fight that can only tend to disintegrate our grand old party and divide your friends-such a course will reflect credit and honor on you and revive the old enthusiasm. And in order to place myself right with the Democratic party to whose principles I have always adhered, and always expect to, I have concluded to make this an open letter, so !hat my motive may not be misconstrued. V Very respectfully yours, A. JOLET, Ju. - nam a Physicians and Druggists. New York Times. According to the Medical and Surgi cal Reporter, of Philadelphia, the Me dico-Legal Society of this city has recently issued a report which should be read and pondered both by phiysi cians as a profession and by public spit ited citizens throughout the coun try. Some months ago the society appointed a committee to take into consideration the relations between medical men and druggists, and sug gest, if possible, some remedy for the existing frequent usurpation of the function of the doctor by his coadju tor, the compounder of prescriptions. The result has been a very brief but lucid and practical disclosure of the sour,'es of the difficulty, concluded with some remedial suggestions that are eminently sound and feasible. By their professional patronage of drug gists physicians have uncousciouly cultivated and promoted popular con fidence in the discretion and training of their coadjutors, thus leading their patient to ask the advice of the latter in cases of not serious indisposition, and depriving themselves of a large source of income. By this means the importance of the physician as the primaly authority in medical matters has been diminished, his business im paired, and the prestige of druggists increased. That this statement of the case is true every accurate observer well knows ; it is even truer of New York than it is of Philadelphia ; but it is true of every town and village in the United States, and a more flagrant abuse in small towns than in large cities. On occasions even in smaller cities the doetor finds the druggist to be master of the situation, and is com pelled to submit to any humiliation rather than offend him and lose the practice lie is able to influence. So the druggist begini by offering the physician a snmall percentage on all prescriptions sent to him, and ends by exacting of the physician a commission on patients. Cases of this percentage business are nmore common than the public suppose; theie are many phy sicians in this city to whom the drug gist pays a portion of the receipts on every prescription sent to him and is compelled to charge accordingly ; but, of course, such facts did not conie within the scope of the -Medico-Legal Society. There is a source of abuse by druggists, however, which is too general to pass without comment, and that is the substitution of drugs for each other. The Doctor prescribes quinine; the druggist substitutes the less expensive quinidia and charges for quinine, or uses an inferior or adulterated article. This practice is quite extensive. Diluted tinctures are employed: bismuth adulterated with arsenic is made to serve for pure bis tmuth in infantile troubles; the child dies, and thle doctor gets the blame. The committee suggests as a remedy for this state of things that physicians shall unite in demnianding that drug gists shall cease to sell quack nos trliUns, to prescrihe, and to renew pres criptions that have been placed in their hands, and shall withdraw their patronage fromn those who refuse. If the refusal is general, then the prac titioner must resume his dispensing funictioi, provide himself with tie necessary druins, and furnish his pa tients with such medicines as they re quire. The movement thus initiated by tilhe I'hihadellia Medico-Legal So ciety is one of the highest inomlenl, not only to practitioners but to the Ipublic, andl if our medical associations take hold of it in earnest, as now seemns likely, patent medicines, adul terated drugs and apothecary advice to patients will soon be driven from the market. Inlentors employing attorneys famil iar with practice in the Patent Office, rarely fail of securing patents.
