HRWkt.........Cameron Parish. & Maion*«» ............ .Mermenlau. The account of a Into visit to ear parish referred to in oar last week's paper, will appoar in our »ext isrue. The recent heavy ruins have swollen the creeks to a considera ble height, and we fear will prove rajarious to the crops. Bead Dental notioe of Dr. P. M. Dee, whom we take pleasure in recommending to those needing hia services. If the Granges of Calcasieu will furnish as with a list of their offi cers we will be pleased to publish them. No news from the Parker guo, which left here a few days ago for Barnes' Creek. As Geo. H. Wells, Esq., is at her breech, we expect soon a favorable report. The balloon constructed for the occasion of the evening of the 14th insU by the indefatigable Capt. Tho». 11. Reynolds, of the steamer Ramos, is 19 feet long and 39 feet in circumference. The connection of 8. T. Grise more os editor of the English de partment of the Tbibodaux Sen tinel ceased on tbe 31st ult. Read notice of the Board of Assessors of this parish. Tax payers may call on the Board, and have the necessary corrections made in their assessment any time daring this month. As the liour approaches for the opening of tho Fair this evening at the Catholic church, we are more thoroughly convinced that it will be a complete success. Tho balloon ascension on Satur day evening nt 5 o'clock, and the concert which will begin nt 8 o'clock of tbe smno evening, will be grand for Lake Charles beyond description. As these entertainments are given for the benefit of the Catho lic church, we feel safe in saying that they will be lilierally patron ized, more particularly, of course, hy the Catholic fraternity of this parish. None, who can, will fail to contribute at least the price of one ticket (76 cents.) Others who are more able are expected, and undoubtedly will, contribute more liberally. Three New Granoks. — The deputy for Calcasieu parish, (8. A. Bailiou, Esq.,) organized three new Grange« in this parish re cently, viz : in Vincent Settlement, on Big Woods and on Sabine. When will Lake Charles boast of a Grange organization ? Terre Hante City, Ind., is the center of one of tbe most terrible and destructive storms snd over flows to crops sod property that ever visited that seetion of coun try, Tbe toes in fourteen counties tributary to this city is estimated at not less than twelve millions of dollars. This terrible destruction of property occurred but a few days ago. The election in Texas for a Con stitatioual Convention, has in all probability,' been carried. A very light vote polled. Kentucky's democratic majority in the State election held on the 'M inst, is probably not leas than 10,000. INTERESTS ALE! Citizens- of Calcasieu owe to them selves for reasons of an economical na ture, the following things : First, find out where you can buy to best advantage, good new artiolee. I have a stock of goods purchased at low figures ; it is only necessary for pur chasers to oome and examine goods and prices, and I feel confident they will be satisfied. Fast colors of calico selling 10 cents per yard ; first class Gent's ready-made Clothing, Notions, Dry Goods. Shoes of all descriptions, Hats, Crockery, Groceries, Clocks, and Fur nitnro ; all selected for this market. and if articles desired are not seen, Ï will thunk customers to ask for what they want, as I purpose to keep what is needed in this market Call and see for yourselves, at ''New Store,*'E. L. lliddick, near the Post Office, nng 12 The contest between the dem ocrats and repnblicnns of North Carolina for the Constitutional Convention, has been very close, with the chances considerably in favor of tbe democrats, having a small majority in the convention. The Beacher trial will probably be re-opened. The Assension Leader, an inde pendent journal, published at Donaldson ville, La., suspended publication on the 31st nit. Alabama is rejoicing and shoot ing her big guns in honor of the people's success in carrying the convention by a majority of 15,000 or 20,000_ Re-orgmiixation of the Demo cratic Party of Louisiana. RECOMMENDATIONS FROM PROMINENT MEN OF LOUISIANA. From the Sunday Delta. The undersigned citizens of Louisiana, in view of the approach of tho Presidential Campaign for 1876, and recognizing tbe fact that in that campaign there can be but two parties, the Republican and Democratic, earnestly recommend and urge the immediate organiza tion of the democratic party of Louisiana, and suggest primary meetings of the democrats of the several parishes to carry out this recommendation.

The democracy of Maryland has made a hickory-planked platform. We congratulate Senator Whyte that when he rises in the Federal Senate to defend the great princi S les of tbe democraoy of Jefferson, sekson, snd Benton, ho can point to the platform of principles of his State, snd speak as becomes a Senator in the American Senate. Tbe " old times " are coming back. Carroll for Governor, ex-Governor Whyte in tbe 8enate of the United States, and an old hickory plat form. Got! bless " My Maryland." Tbe following platform was 'unanimously reported by tbe Com mittee on Resolutions and unan imously adopted by tbe conven tion : First. We do hereby declare our unfaltering devotion to those car dinal principles of republican gov ernment enunciated by Thomas Jefferson in language so clear that it cau uot be improved Upon, to wit : " Equal and exact justice to all men, of whatever state or per suasion, religious or political ; the supnort of the State governments in all their rights as the most com petent administration for our do mestic concerns, and the surest bulwark against anti-republican tendencies ; the preservation of tbe General Government in its whole constitutional vigor as the sheet anchor of our peace at home and safety abroad ; the supremacy of tbe civil over the military author ity; economy in the public ex penses, that labor may be lightly burdened ; the honest payment of our debts and the sacred preserva tion of the public faith ; the diffu sion of information, and the ar raignment of nil abuses at the bar of public leuson ; freedom of reli gion ; freedom of tbe press ; free dom of the person, ander tbe pro tection of tue habeas corpus ; and trial by jury impartially selected." Second. Pledged to this creed of political faith, we do further re solve that we protest against tbe burdens of a high proteotive tariff as needless exactions from a peo ple intolerably oppressed by a gi gantic national debt, and that we insist that the tariff be so regu lated as to provide only a sufficient revenue for general uses and not for the purpose of enriching the few at the expense of the many; that we protest against tbe multi plication of Federal offices, the as signment to them of unusually high salaries, and the abuses of Federal patronage, which tend to corrupt the States and to corrupt free institutions. Third. That agriculture, manu factures, aud commerce should be the equal care of well-regulated governments; obstructions to any of them should be removed, but no favoritism should be extended to either at tho expense of the others; that labor and capital are mutually dependent, and equal justice de mands that legislation should, as far as practicable, harmonize their conflicts, and prevent the one from oppressing or obtaining undue ad vantage over the other. Fourth. That we protest against any increase of tho ffirculatiug cur rency, but demand that such measures be adopted by Congress as will result in the resumption of specie payment at the earliest pos sible moment. Fifth. That we are opposed to at opposed tho granting of subsidies to rail road or steamship companies, or other monopolies, as unwarranta ble in law, corrupting in tendency, aud utterly subversive of the prin ciples of good republicau govern meut. The sixth rosolutiou treats of the administration of State affairs, the admirable system of 8tate public schools, and the good order prevailing throughout the State. Tbe seventh and last commends the nominees to the confideuce of the people, and pledges the earn est efforts of the delegates to se cure their election. Has He a Call 1 Has he a call to be a husband who thinks more of bis horse than of his wife ? Has he a call to be a husband who spends six evenings oat of tbe week away from borne, and com plains because his wife will go Tuesdays to prayer meetings ? Has he ü call to be a husband who spends five dollars a week for cigars, and an occasional glass ; but can't afford to take a newspa per for bis family ?

Has he a call to be a hnsffand who never buys a book or a pic ture to make borne attractive, and still wonders why a woman oan't be contented to stay at home seven days out of a week, and ever sing M There's no plaoe like home ?" Has he a call to be a husband who loses money by betting on elections and horse races, and when he becomes involved attri butes it to bis wife's extrava gance ?
