RED RIVER IN LINE !
Largest eetiag Ever 'ield in the Parish. 500 DETERMINED CITIZENS MEET! COMPLETE DESIRTION PROM THE RADI' CAL RANKS OF ALL WHO HONEST LY DESIRE RE'OrM l CAN'T SWALIOW M. H. TWITCIELL i AS A "REFORMER." We had the pleasure of attending the largest meeting of citizens ever held in the parish of Red River, on Thursday, 6th inst., and were truly gratified with the results. Our sister parish has suffered in silence and tears, the outrageous presence and plunder of the Carpet-baqrer Twitch. ell and the burglar Dewoes, and be tween the two she has been left in utter beggery. But the hour is at han, and in the mighty upheavel of the people's movement, the citizens of Red River have shown themselves well worthy of the proud distinction of American freemen. Over five hundred of her true and tried sons werfepresent, and participated in the meeting, and a perfect organization of the parish was effected. D6legates were elected to attend the 'Conventions to nominate State, District, Senatorial and Con gressional candidates. Col. W. I8. Jack ae old war horse from our par ish, addressed the meeting in one of his happy and stirring efforts, and his speech was received with the ut most enthusiasm. All the Republi cans in the parish, except the Carpet bag element, and our Supreme Knight of the While Camelia, Judge Pe'nny, who, taken all in all is a very small coin, and isaunurreat with alliclasses; joined in the great reform movement and proelaimed themselves white men in the true sepae of the word. The cant of reform, with M. H. Twitchell as its head, exponent, don't go down with them, and they believe with us, that no. hope of an honest govern ment, a government for all classes exists outside of the native white citizen of Louisiana. . Red River will win this time cer tain, for her people have become tired of conciliation and compro mise, and are determined to act upon the patriotic and high ground of hon orsble lirinciple, and that in itself is half the battle. Dewees and Twitch ell and such ilk, are not ,the fit poli tical associates of the gentlemen of that parish, and their motives in com promise can only be me1dinary. Fel. low-citizens of Red River parish stand together as omB man, put he honest and espable ticket of representative white men in the field, the colored citizens will come to your nsistance certain, for he can see no hope in the promisees of Radical plunderers who are bent only upoa securing their own ends.

THE M0s a AUtrrIn UL WOM, TO BE AP PROPJAuTED BY THE NGROES. New Iberia, Aug.'7, 1874 A dreadful plot of the negroes has just been discovered here to kill the in' habitants and to set fire to the residenceg and plantations in the parish of St. Mar tilin. The facts were disclosed by a letter which was handed to a prominent white gentlemain by a Republican, who vouch es for the truth of the statement it con tains. The plan was to commence killing and burning at the Lestrapes place and con tinue their wirk of rapine add matler as far as St. Martineville. A recommendation is made in the let ter to set the plantations on fire, in or der tolind where money could be found. The negroes were to keep for them solves the most beautiful women and the parties who were to be killed were men tioned by name. As Mon as the criminals aseertained that their horrid plane were discovered, they del the parish in hot haste. The Featest exoitement' prevails, and the pecile are thoroughly aroused and deteraned to discover and bring to punishnent the villains who have medi tated tlis dreadful massacre and pillage. Eve. A.

The meet ing was irganiedl by calling 8. W. Burkette!o the Chair and appointing A. V. Cater, as Secretary. The objct having been' explained by Mr. W A. Ponder in a short and appropriat speech, aeommittee of five was appoined to draft resolutions ex pressive of he sense of this people. Committe:--G. C. Cunningham, W. A. Ponbr, J. E. Keegan, A. V. Carter and i. D. Scarborough, who offered theofollowing preambles and resolutions, Whreas The state of affairs pre vailing in nisianua for the last six years, havie convinced all unpreju diced men tat this State has been given up to polation and plunder by the masses %f Ignorant negroes in cited and lecon by, corrupt and ras cally white an, therefore, be it Resolved, Wl the citizens of ward six, That we eartestly favor, the organ ization of a prty in Louisiana based upon the priniple that the intelligent and honest pople should rule her destinies, no tatter by what name the party be 0.lled, whether Deiho crat or Whits League, so that its platform of priciples is broad enohgh to give to evet citizen of race and color theirconstutional rights. Resolved, Tht we recognize the supremacy of lhe white man in Louisiana, and think that through his intelligence ed ability is the only way by ieoh the State can be redeemed fronhe grasp of thieves who have proIted her prosperity and every mate interest.

And if all cotgervative voters unite in the selection of its delegates, surely that Convention will fully re present their views and wishes. Here, then, we Aind a Convention called by certainly the meat powerful, ancient and best disciplined party in the State, whee doors are so widely thrown open that opponents of Pad. icalism in Louisiana may enter and express their will... But the address further says : "Recent dissensions among our people, and a deep and abiding de sire to unite all the elements opposed to Radicalism, admonish us not to risk everything upon our own isolated and unaided efforts; although, in this emergency, duty prompts us to exert ourselves as if we were depend ent upon our sole resources." And again : "Therefore, forgetful of past differences, and casting from our breasts all heart-burnings, let there be a cordial union of All the con servatives of Louisiana. "The Democratic party has no en mities to gratify, and holds out the hand of fellowship to all those who are disposed to aid us in this crisls. National politics are subordinate nlu this canvass. The vital issue is re demption from a corrupt State Gov ernment and local misrule." Can any Conservative within the State refuse to meet and confer with men breathing a spirit like this f The Committee of Seventy indorsed that address. It saw in it an opportunity -the best, perhaps, that could be af forded-for union and lagmony. It thought from the call itself that the proposed Convention was to be a convention of all the conservative people of Louisiana, in which all op ponents of Radicalism, of negro so ptemnacy and of the Kellogg usurpa tion could give full and free expres sion to their views. This committee, entertaining this view, could see no use in holding two conventions. It therefore indorsed the Democratic call. It afterwards requested the Democratic Central Committee to change the .place for holding the Con vention to Baton Rouge, which was promptly and patriotically done. This was asked solely for the sake of har mony-as a mere matter of conces sion to the wishes of some of our brethren of the country. And now to that Convention we in. vite and urge you to come. What matter under whose auspices it is called ? True thl there is objection on the part of sotne of the Democrat. ic name. Let such remember that: the Democratic party is a grand na tional organization ; that upon its arm hangs our sole hope for the bve'throw of the national Republican party; that it has been fighting our battles when we have been powerless and voiceless, and that to-day, in its grand onslaught oa the wavering lines of Radicalism i all the States of the Union, its isret battle cry is "Re member outraged and wronged Louis iana." But remember, you who ish,, in this campaign, to discard all party mames, that all the vters of the State who are opposed to the existing uswrpation, are invited, withoit reference.to party aff iations, to send delegates to the Cns vention.
