There is no disguising the fact. The people of Louisiana are thor oughly aroused and fully deter-1 mined that they shall not be de frauded out of the fruits of the political victory they have achive ed. Onr country exchanges from every quarter of the State give evidence that can not be mistaken that the Returning Board will in cur a fearful personal responsi bility if any member attempts to throw out the votes of a parish or change the result of the elec tion, and make it different from 1 that of the count had âtsTio polis | on the day of the election. On. the assembling of the Legis iatnre in this city on the Snl by law, the eooehy members who have been fairly aid legally elect ed, will be attended by sneh .. escort of citizens from the differ ent parishes who will see that their Representatives are seated in the Legislate™, the action of the Returning Board to the eon trary notwithstanding. Swindling our people out of their jnst rights, by base and corrupt oÆoiaia, like Ihose who compose tbe Returning Board, can not be repeated with impnnity again. It «L done sue ceas fully in 1872, but the 14th of September demonstrated to the I horde of Radical hirelings and cowardly minions of tho Kellogg usnrpation, that the people of thii city were determined to be run over, rough shod, no longer by the leaders or followers of athiev ing and bare-faced fraudulent government The people are fearfully in earn estin this political contest. will brook no fraudulent count, no illegal condnct. and no high-1 no illegal condnct, and handed measure. We have m«t the enemy fairly and given hfm a square fight, with all the odds against us. The whole power aud machinery of the registration and election laws was under his con-1 trol; our advantage was only in the justice of our cause and the rectitude of our purpose. Will. a-srii,«? ä verted his allies, that desertions were reinforced, until from a*com paratively small brigade, as the Republican would say of us, we have swelled to dimensions so strong as to have enabled ns to sweep, not only the State of Louis iana, but the whole country, and to consign to perdition the whole Radical party of the United States. Onr success is attribnta success attribnta bie, in a measure, to the deser tions from the ranks of onr ene my. The vote of the negro was divided, and thousands of them voted Ibr the Democratic ticket, thus giving to ns an undoubted and emphatic majority. This being tbe case, we can not and will not be defrauded out of one jot or title of our rights; and the individual or board that at tempts anything of the kind will undertake the most stupendous contract of the age, apd one that will require more backing than the Racfioal party can furnish at this time. From the Shreveport Telegram we learn that a contract was en tered ou the 6th instant, between the South western and Rio Grande Railroad Company, of that city, and Messrs. O'Connor & McCabe, for the grading and bridging of the first ton miles of the road ; the work to commence at the Shreve port terminas between the 15tb and 20th of November. Th'e con tractors are reported to be old hands at railroad construction. They have telegraphed for their wagons, teams and working im plements, at Denison and Sher man, Texas ; and are confident of being ready to begin by the 16th. _ ÊN. <>. Times.

A4 the commencement oi tbe new era which seems drawing upon onr people, we wish to assure you and the people of the United W. Zacharie, Committee. Tbe Emperor of Germany an nounced to his Parliament, a few days ego, that it was the design of tbe Government to thorough! v arm, equip and organize the Land strnm so as to have the whole tn/ile population fit for active ser vice. France took the alarm, and a Government decree was issued, ordering an immediate increase in the effective strength of the army. A Paris dispatch of the 5th says that in consequence, great activity is now observable in all the French military departments; inspections are going on everywhere with marked activity and energy, and staff officers are kept as busy as can be. Tbe dispatch closes with this full-of-meaning paragraph : If war comes, France means to be ready, was the significant re mark of an officer of high rank." Gonb Up.—T he American Mu tual Insurance Company, says tho New Orleans Bulletin, domiciled at No. 26 Commercial Place, between 'Camp and St. Charles streets, New Orleans, which has for some time pest been staggering along through difficulties and un der many mais and tribulations, recently threw np the sponge. There was a large meeting of tlie stockholders, and the company was pat into liquidation. It is believed that the only losers by the suspension will be the stock holders, who, it is expected, will make the liabilities of the com pany good to the amount due oa their stock notes. The man who has nothing to boast of but his illnstrious ances tors is like a potato plant—the only good belonging to him is un der pound.
