Party Names. The absorbing opic seems to be the ammo, undr whbich the whate peo ple of this State. 'iBall do battle for their constitutigeql righlts, for their liberties as freemie; In the great 'vic tory to be won in November next. For ourselves we are not choice, and are willing: perfictly, to take any ti tie that will bear with it any certain ty of success, although we fail to see what good use there id iu party ap pellations, unless a fixed andi broad set of principles be enunciated which will command the respect, attention and support of the white citizens of Louisiana. In the issue now before as we have butone object in view, as have all men, no matter what particular preferences they may have for this political or ganization or that, who are seriously interested and really in earnest, and are actuated by that one patriotic motive; and that Is the redemption of our fair Stats frojm the misrule of the Radieal and Negro party, who feast among the ruins of our once proud prosperity.' This great problem con tains not one. spgle question f. the success of. any great Nationalt , , and is in fact utterly foreign to them, as parties. What ire desire is, that we should not be misunderstood in this canvass as advocating ' Demo cratic or Republican principles, and therefore we'ap people consider the Democratic party as a party, as a National organization; have no more right to demand our support pr die tate'; line of polie .to us than the Repubicean party,~a a party have. We are tryinag to redeem Louisiana, and in so doing, ask the formation of a 8tate organization having a plat form broad enough l prineiple to admit of. ,bom for all classat and shades of politiil 'opinioa; of aien who Id ld estly iqseers I their 'de, sire and d64tailamtion to rid the Stateda badgovoernment. a ..

CLOUTIERVILLE. Ignorant or Criminal. The New Orleans I.7plics takes a very stinPglarow ol the action od our people, in renovimg certain ish offlers; and in i:article inwto1 ia of altk inst., It trays a willfal criminality or a wanton ignorance of the whole matter. Its idul of the 1 "basis principle of Republiman gov einient" is well worthy the consid eration of some despot, for, the con ception of Democracy theraeaaneia ted, could be imitatld 'with good ef fect by the Khan of Tartery. This I. the first time we hboar that, law is the "basis principle" of Republies, and still notwithstand so good an an thority as the New Orleans Republi can, being the olcislamoutlh-piece of thbee whom, either self constituted or , not, have the bsnor of expounding4 the Constitution, we beg leave in our humble ignorance to differ... It has the candor to admit that 'ire have among as, however, a doctrine that whenever a ,law of taation 'repre sstation," mark, well, "ftaxstio or reprmestation," is opprelres upon those trio disapprioe "of it, thelps a reserved ad irnalienable i gbt to evade or resist such law." The above clause we think seotains all'ie "ba eis of Republics, and certabily that of the United States, for it was i on that principle and in direct ltieo of the ,laws of England,. that the Colopist's,revolted against, not only the wll of the mass of the English people, kat against the wishbe of the mass of the (kmbist's tA seduew; for we are well' aware that datiog the dark and trylpg days of the Revola. tion, the patriot Colonist's were af flicted with just such trimmersas the Republica., and jast ph . inebnsist ant reasoners existed.' It was upon this doctrine which is garbled in its meaning as expressed In the Repaubliea, but' whid, a peo* pli determined; to be free perfectly understand, that the people of this parish ",praded and resieted' the law and law-lvers of this sectiu.o ahet 27ta JuRE last. SNow somes the quostin i' who are the people of Natchitolhes par ish? And we' am again at eutremes with tht journal. Does that paper argue .tht the ignorant iegro, not repreenting ne dollar in poperty, pging not even his peol-ta, :e' to :,clae. ue "'the people," and to whom as a majority we murstelbmit; we who own all the property sad pay all the tbzs. 'Does, it aagide that we do.at know that this principle, thids "mhomat right, of .evasion or rlistanee," means oppoetilon teo >bo tyrauyh is well as foreign, and is as ,eplicle to as as .o he Cglo~st's.

We suppose this tsate government, this Kellogg mon strewlty, is one of the "Federal bene fits" we have aecepted. We of Natchitoches, understand as well as the Rpblicn, what a gor ernment "republican in form" is, and are fully prepared to take any conee puences which may follow the putting In fores, the d~parine of "evading or resiting" opprmesion, nor will such implied threats, deter us from acting as we consider a people worthy of the name of freemen should act; as those indulged in, that may "eome.up in an unexpected imanner." We trust our Parish Convention, which meets to-day, will .have the mianlines to meet tiebmlssuafirly and I aquarely.

Truth Harms no Man. - The vietory of Pindabsck, the ad voae of his race eptd d.he Africni aten of oar State+, 4fraello and Pdikard, the whinldg fallowers and the white-livered fhinkies, who are willing, and do sarifice their honor and the respectability of their race for gaie, is, we think, enough to sat isfy those who would longer wish to deal in 'this wishey-washey never-to sdcdoed policy of open affiliation. Here is the question brought home and we cannot iee for the life of ui, how" the honorable white man can possibly shirk the lesse. Pinchbeck declares the colored man in the ma jority, and for that reason and that reason alone, he should assert his right to control the, State. For turn sad twist, dodge It as you may, there it stands staring you in the face. PAite. me, of Loansioan will or rse fuse to accept th gae Ie We were stunned, utterly astonish ed, 4bat some leading men in our parish were advpcating the same old want-of-candor policy, that has mark ed our "course in our political can vas for the past, six years. T'hat we find among as men, who have been tried in a thousand ways and found puare, who would desire that this "cup might pass from their lips," is not at all singular. No man who has the best interests of his country at heart, would wish to array one race against the' other, but ft hi beet done without our consest and we must meet the issue, or no more boast of our superiority. The question of the white man's party hue been ably ar gued, and In all it lights and bear. ligs we have been unable to see any semblance of ostracism, prsoriiption or disfranehisement, as some have discovered.' We do not object to the negro ea joying amy right, any privilege, that we enjoy, if he can attain that right or prievi through is.mw superior edu eatioa and d*arekr, but we distinct ly declarethat he is not fitted to en joy ofeial poeiiam now, from the fact that his mental ealiber-that his property identification is not at all suffiient to entitle him to such mark ed eooaideration of being constituted the repilents of ocill positions at our hands We propose to be "frk" witrtheir na farther, ire will not say anathlmg of them, of their ca pacity and representative qualifica tions, which they #hbeelves will not admit.
