The Sheriff of St. Landry.— The Opelousas Journal of last week contains an interesting ac count of the recent capture by C. C. Duson, sheriff of St. Landry,-in the Indian Territory, of one Louis Rousseau, charged with the mur der of Cyriaqne Brignac, in St. Landry, last Februaiy. It says that sheriff Duson made the flip— over twelve hundred miles bv rail road—at his own expense, without any reward having been offered for the arrest, and w hen the parish treasury was without money to jeppy him; and concludes by say ing that St. Landry never had a better sheriff. It might well have said that a better one was not to be fonud in the State. Strayed or Stolen.—Ten Dollars Reward. Strayed or stolen, » large creole sor rel horse, gentle to harness and saddle.

On Sunday, a young man connected with the Morguu Railroad, in the cattle transfer department, whilst engaged in unloading, ordered a negro man who was interfering with him in the dis charge of Ids duties "out of liia way.'* The uegro became boisterous and ob streperous, and advanced to attack the vonug man, who drew n revolver and fired once, wounding the uegro, whether seriously or not, is not known. The negro** of tha town and the negroes in the neighborhood, healing of the affair, gathered in numbers and congregated around the depot. The people of Brnahear assembled — the negroes liecomtng boisterous- aud a rencontre took place. Several shots wer« fire»!, and one man was wounded, hut the negroes were driven off.

SUBSTANTIAL RIGHT AND GENUINE LAW. Extract f rom a late s}xtcch (Jov. Tilden, of New York. •'If our legislative bodies and public officers full short of their duty, the pco pic can recall tlio powers they hav delegated, and c»n renovate the admin istration of justice, until those eyes represented iu Roman statuary as blind will be made to see substantial right and genuine law." The a hove words of Gov. Tilden aio "like apples of gold set in pint aces of silver." For nearly fif teen years the American people have become so aceustomed to substantial wrong and genuine contempt of law, on tho part of those whom they elected to be their servants, but who became their masters, that it is really re freshing to hear the chief m agistrate of theEinpireStatefpeak hopefully of a time wheu they may expect substantial right and genuine law. Under the degrading reign of the Republican party there is branch of the national govern ment, nor a single State in the Union, which has not been pol luted with fraud and corruption. Even the langnage of the people has become perverted. A man who takes bribes, is " influenced." An official who steals public money, commits " irregularities." A Judge who prostitutes justice to Yhe de mand of a political party, " tran scends his powers." The Pres ident of the United States spits upon the Constitution, and his vast army of office holders applaud his " nerve." He oveithrows the rightful govern ment of a State, und testais a usurpation iu its place, and those who dare to murmur at the out rage are styled " banditti." His appointees are compelled to pay a certain per cent, of their salaries to raise a fund to bur an election, and it is only " a contribution for political purposes." Law isfibought and sold like meat in the market, on the floors of Congress and of the State Legislatures, and it is merely " lobbying." The most notorious scoundrels iu tho country are appointed to the most responsible sta tions of trust and power, and capacity, honesty and morality, are thrust to the wall. Rag paper becomes the circulating medium, and gold and silver, be causo they are true vaines, are banished from sight. The public treasury is robbed by its own guar dians, and the people are taxed the heavier to make up the loss. The whole country, north, sooth, east and west, languishes under an unparalelled commercial pros tration, and the chief magistrate of the country abandons his post at the national capital, and seeks only his personal ease and enjoy ment at Long Branch. All de partments of legitimate business are more or less paralyzed. Evil communications have corrupted good manners, and brazen impu dence stares modesty out of coun tenance. Incompetency is a sure passport to preferment, and the surer if coupled with notorious dishonesty. There is but one remedy for these frightful evils, and that is the destruction of the moustor which has spawned them. The re publican party or the American republic must die. Every man, white or black, who is known as a supporter of the republican party, must be known as an enemy to the Constitution and the Union, and to substantial right, and genuine law. Though his creed is de structive of liberty and property, hie own person and property must be safe from vipleuce, because tioleuce is incompatible with right in to of and law ; but he must be made to feel the soom aud contempt of every true man and woman. The name republican, as a party desig nation, must be made a synonym for infamy. The people must work out their own political salvation. Mark Gov. Tilden's words. " If our legisla tive bodies and public officers fall short of their duty, the jtco pie can recall the powers they have delegated, and renovate the admin istration of justice." The people must understand that they, and they alone, can restore the reign of substantial right and genuine law. They, and they alone, are tho source of political power. They, and they alone, can relegate to private life, and to merited ob scurity, the dishonest servants who have robbed them, and the incom petent servants who have ruined them. They, and they alone, can crush the republican party, and restore the Union and the States to the control of the democratic party—the party of the Union and the Constitution—the party of sub stantial right aud genuine law. Telegraphic Brevities. The Georgia's Troubles. RECENT OUTBREAK, TURNS OUT TO HAVE BEEN PC'BTION OF AN ARRANGED NEGRO UPRISING IN NINETEEN COUNTIES. Augusta, Aug. 23.—Several of the prominent negroes connected with the troubles in the counties below hero have made confessions. Jake Moor man, First Lieutenant of a negro com pany, testifies on oath, that nineteen counties were to be embraced iu the insurrection, aud last Friday was ap pointed for the uprising. All the white npen and ugly white women were to be killed—the pretty white women were to be spared, and the lands and spoils were to be divided among the negroes. All who have so far confessed testify substantially the same as Jake Moor man. Gov. Smith arrived here this after noon from Waynesboro. He is deter mined to preserve the peace, enforce the laws and do justice to whites and blacks. A most unfortunate affair oc curred last Friday morning, the 13th test., at Barry's Landing, in this parish. In a rencontre be tween Messrs. D. P. Suizan and Raymond Doshotels, who, it is said, had been on very bad terms for some time, tho latter was killed. Mr. Saizan immediately came to town and surrendered himself, and a preliminary examination of the case was begun last Thursday be loro District Judge Morgan, and was not yet concluded when we went to press.—[Dpelousas Cou rier, August 21.
