From the Sunday Delta. The people are turning with confidence as the exponent and advocate of their political princi ples and interests, for it is unfor tunately true that, in this crisis of onr affairs, as a State, there is no outspoken daily jonrnal in onr metropolis. The Bulletin, with a record so glorions, up to the mid dle of last wintel, seems to have fallen by the wayside. Those who love liberty and resist usurpation, search its columns in vain for those bold, and spirit-stirring calls, which roused the energies and re vived the hopes of our oppressed people in 1874, and read with dis gust the platitudes aud criticisms which it seems to delight in launching against the platform of the Ohio democracy. Not that the views of the Bulletin upon the question of national finance are erroneous, for the democrats gen erally approve them, but because the question of finance, as an issue in a State election, or even in a national election, sinks into otter insignificance in view of the mighty issues involved, which are no less than the liberty of the citizen and the existence of our system of gov ernment. Suppose that the financial plank of the Ohio platform is not sonnd. does the Bulletin not know that the radical platform is equally so? Does it not know that national finances have no rightful place in State platforms ? Above all, does it Dot kuow that, theoretically and practically, the republican party is the author and advocate of onr greenback and national bauk sys tem, and that the democratic par ty has ever been the champion of a hard money system ? Bat strange, that while assailing the deq|ocraey of Ohio on this is sue, the Bulletin is silent as to alt the other questions iuvolved, nei ther commending what is unexcep tionable in tbe democratic plat form or attacking the imperfec tions and heresy of the radical platform. Does it not know that, on the vital issue of States rigtns, as opposed to force bills, Kellogg's usurpation, tbe attempts against Arkansas, and the general inter ference of Grant and Williams, with tbe afiairs of the States, that the Ohio democracy are sound to the core, and that the Ohio rad icalism is rotten to tbe core ? The Bolietin and Picayune have joined hands on the Ohio platform, for the latter published, with infinite gusto, the slanderous statement that Governor Allen had offered troops in September, 1874, to aid Grant iu crushing the people of Lotfisiaua, thus seekiug to injure Allen as the democratic nominee, while the former, seeing nothing to commend in the action or prin ciples of the Ohio democracy, seems bent ou defeating their nom inees by railing at the financial feature of the platform. This is beautiful work for jour nals which boast of their devotion to Louisiana. In Ohio the rad icals iudorse Grant's administra tion, which iucludes the Kellogg usurpation, the Arkansas infamy and the force bill. In Ohio, Mor ton, the aroh enemy of Louisiana aud the South, is par excellence the expounder aud advocate of radicalism. In Ohio radicalism at tacks freedom of conscience and of religious opinion, for in portions of the State " anti-Catholicism " and " no Popery " are its rallying cries. On all of these issues, so fear fully momentous to the State and the citizen, the Ohio democracy, led by Allen and Thurman, aud Pendleton, take high ground for the civil and political and religious rights of the citizen, aud the rights of the States. They strike not only for Ohio, but for Louisiana. They strike not only for the native but for the adopted citizen. They strike for freedom of oouscienee, aud demand it for the Protestant and the Catholic, the Jew and the Christian—and, notwithstanding all this, and that the people of Louisiana have a deeper interest in tbe result than any other com munity in the Union, we find pub lic journals that have been sup ported by Louisiana patronage, and that claim to represent the people of Louisiana, who, instead of sending words of encourage ment and sympathy to our friends in Ohio are using their great in fluence in a direction that serves« hut to embarrass, impede and de feat them. In the name of the people of Louisiana we protest against this misrepresentation. In the name of the people, we bid the heroic Ohio democracy God speed. In the name of the people of Louis- iana, we assure them that the ef- forts of Thnrman in tbe Senate in their behalf, and the action of Governor Allen and of the Ohio democratic Legislature in de- nouncing the Kellogg usurpation, and in claiming for Louisiana all the guarantees of the Constitution, have not been forgotten, but that onr sympathies and our prayers are with them, and our hopes, as a people who claim the right to be free, and who deserve to be free, are centered in them and in the democracy of the Union. - DEMOCRAT. A Good Precept Well Told. The ingenious arrangement of a sentence is taken from the Caro lina Sentinel, April 4, 1813. It may be read in over two thousand ways without altering the original words, by beginning at the letter R, which will be fonnd in the cen-, ter of tbe diamond : e t eve e v i v e e v i 1 i v e evil&live e v i 1 à t 4 1 i t e evil&tnt&live evil&tnent&live e v i 1 k t n e p e n t A 1 i v e evil&tnepepent&liv evil A tue poRepent Ali e v i 1 Atnepepent&liv evil Atnepent A live evil&tnent&live e v i 1 4 t n t 4 1 i v e e v i 1 A t A 1 i v e evilAlive e v i 1 i v e e ▼ i v e eve e , y* * TO q 11 L tnn* Andrew Jonsou's Widow. Mrs. Johnson, wife of tbe lake ex-President, is reported to be so greatly shocked by ber husband's death as to be in great danger of ber own life. She has been long an iuvalid, and it is bat meet that she should follow the man she loved so devotedly into the spir it nal world. When Andrew Johnson's life shall lie written his wife will be truly pictured as his guardian an gel. She taught him how to read, sustained him in his bitter strug gles, and never asked to share the laurels he won, although they were more than half bei own. No nobler woman has ever adorned American history, and the hearts of all générons persons will deeply sympathize with her in the hoar of affliction.—[Augusta Oonsiitntion. Mr. Zepbirin Hebert, a native of Breaux's Bridge, in the parish of St. Martin, left his native town al the age of 15, lived ten years in New Orleans, and then left for California in 1850, with about $800 in his pocket, where he became engaged in raising stock and speculating iu land. He now owns a farm of 2000 acres in Monterey coauty, valued at $90,000, and about $15,000 worth of property in San Francisco. He recently vis ited hia relatives in Breaux's Bridge, to whom he made munifi cent gifts, and took back with him to California a nephew ot his and two or three other young men of that locality. We gather these I facts from a late article in the j Attakapas Sentiuel, of St Martinz ville.— [Opelousas Courier.
