The cotton that had come up has
been seriously injured by the cold
weather, and, the cut-worms are at
work on the tender plant. We may
conclude that nearly all the early cotton
will have to be planted over.
Mr. Robert Layton sends us a head
of Hanson lettuce, crisp and brittle,
measuring 16 inches in diameter and
weighing 2 pounds. That is pretty
near as large as some lettuce beds we
have seen. Thank you, Mr. Layton.
The weather has been dry and quite
cool during the week just ended. Not
since the war have we had so dry a
spring. The streets are quite dusty, the
-fields and gardens dry, and the river is
at the stage usually seen in August.
The bayous in the swamp are all ford
able, and the swamps hard and firm.

The District Court opened at Rayville
on Monday. The writer was in atten
dance at the tax-resisting meeting there
on that day, which was addressed by
Gov. McEnery in a speech of nearly
two hours' length. The Courthouse
could not contain the vast assemblage.
It was an earnest enthusiastic meeting
that meant no good for the usurpers.

Arrival of Troops.
A company of U. S. soldiers, from
the post of Jackson, Miss., has arrived
here, and gone into camp below the
city near Mr. Layton's. Capt. Clayton
Hale, the officer in command, paid us
a business call, and from him we learn
that the object ot the assignment is to
furnish U.S.MIarshals with troops, upon
a proper requisition from those officials.
We are wholly ignorant of any act,
thought or purpose on the part of any
responsible citizen of this country to re
sist the authority of the United States.
It gives us pleasure to say that we are
favorably impressed with Capt. HIale
and that hesxpresses himself well pleas

Mail Depredations on the N. L. & T. it. R.
Some time in the latter part of last
year one of the workmen in the shops
ofthe North Louisiana & Texas Rail
road located in this city, in overhaul
ing a mail and express coach, found a
number of letters and envelopes bet wecn
the ceiling and outer plank, which gave
pvery evidence of having been broken
u-,pen and robbed. A list of these letters
with date of maniling, and the names of
- wrsons who witnessed the finding, have
-een placed in our posscsion. Some
of the -Ietters were mailedl here and
others mailed el.ewhere. The post
office special agent ttnd newspaper
dead-beat, Major Edgar Seyle,was noti
tied promptly of this tdelredation, as
his letter in our possession shows, but
no notice appears to have been taken of
the matter, although his acknowledge
ment is dated the 29th of January last. I
The swift-footed Special Agent, who
jwas so prompt to arrest Pipes and Bu
chanan, the small-fry mail robbers, has,
it seems, abandoned his honest purpose
of bringing robbers to punishment, in
consideration of the parties likely to
be brought up in the robbery of letters
on the N. L. & T. Railroad. From
what we can gather only one of the
trains, sent on alternate days- from
Monroe, was subjected to the mail rob
bers inspection, and this was Mr. Iarry
Lewis's train, on which the young
Messrs. Rays were in charge of the
mails. Neither the road nor its officers
have anything to do with the mails,
but these young men had the pouches
and mail matter in full charge, and it
behooves them, now to answer fully this
grave accusation against their fidelity.

Proceedings of Tax Payers' Meeting, at
Monroe, April 19, 1873.
At 12 o'clock, Col. Robert Richardson,
Provisional Presidentof the Association
of Tax-Payers of the Parish of Ouachita,
called the meeting to order; and in a
brief and pointed manner explained the
object of the meeting.
G. WV. McFee, the Secretary and
Treasurer, being absent, D. C. Brown
was requested to act as Secretary pro
Thos. McGuire, of Trenton, offered
the following resolutions, which were
unanimously adopted :
1. Resolvecd, That we, the people of
the parish of Ouachita, in mass meeting
assembled, heartily and fully endorse
the past action of the government of
the State of Louisiana, in its several
branches and functions, presided over
by John McElnery as Governor of the
State, assisted by the Legislature re
cently assembled at Odd Fellow's Hall
in the city of New Orleans; that we
recognize the same as the only true and
legitimate government of this State;
that none other has any civil or mili
tary functions within the linmits of our
2. That said McEnery government
having been duly elected by a majority
of the voters of the State, we therefore
pledge to it our cordial support as citi
zens, tax-payers and organized militia.
3. That we ignore the so-called Kel
logg government as being spurious and
illegal-as the creature of perjury and
fraud-and as dependent solely on ex- .
traneous force for support, it not having
tihe civil countenance or support of the
people of this State or of the United
4. That we will in every legal man
nor resist and obstruct the operation of
said Kellogg government, both as re
gards the collection of revenues there
for and the action of those claiming to
act as officers thereunder.
The following resolutions were then
1. Jlesolred, That this meeting adopt
for the government of the Association
of Tax-Payers of Ouachita Parish the
Articles of Agreement of the People's
League of Louisiana.
2. That the President of this meeting
shall be President of the Parish Council,
and shall immediately appoint two
Vice Presidents from the city of fMon
rooand one from each ward. Aquorum
to transact business shall consist of
3. The President and Vice Presidents
shall constitute the Parish Council, and
shall adopt such by-laws and regula
tions as to them may be deemed appro
4. That the Council shall immedi
ately proceed to organize the tax-payers
of each ward.
5. That there shall also be one Secre

the city of Monroe. The President

G. That the Vice Presidcnts shall
iulmediately take up subscriptions in
their respective wards to defray the
expenses of this Association until an
an assessment can be mnade.
The President introduced Governor
MeEnery to the meeting. The Gov
crnor spoke about two hours, and
ma:de a most able and eloquent address
which was listened to attentively and
At the conclusion of the Governor's
address the meeting adjourned.
