We heard a very startling report on the streets yesterday, and experaced such a thrill of delight in listening thereto that we cannot refrain from pernlitting our readers to share our pleasure. We were gravely told that there was a movement on foot, the object of which was to induce Mir. Kellogg to resign his position as de facto Ex ecotive, a position which he usurped, anltd which he has so flagrantly die I graced and the duties of which he has I administered with so little discretion and judgmenlt as to plunge the State into virtual bankruptcy. This movement, we are assured, had its inception among our very best and most conservative citizens and tax payers, members of wealthy and respectable mercantile firms, presi dents of banks, insurance companies and other corporations, and that it has been brought about not only by the fact that Mr. Kellogg is. distaste fuil to the people by reason of his hav ing usurped a position to which an oh ther was elected, but by reasan of ' the disasters which the usurpation has brought upon the State au:l city, - and the ruinous effect which it has ", had upon the credit bf the State. Boeads, that even under the Warmnoth administration brought, readily, eigh ty cents in the New York mmarket, to ea, day are shunned by capitalists at 20 and even 15 cents on the dollar. He hasplaced over the people Ip the par ishes a set of thieves and low: fellows who have plundered right and left in the most barefacted and shockisg inap-. ner, and so far 'froni restoring peace, and quiet has really been the cause of most of the trouble in the country, and in one notable instance was the prilme mover in a dreadful riot in which numbers both whlite and black were killed. He has failed to iilspire confidence in anybody and stands to day dete~ted by the more decent men , in his own party as well as bythe Swhole 'white population. . He lobbies lhroigh his mongiel Legislature, acts which are oppressive - and outrageous, and which never can Sgain the sanction of the people. He has, in short, exhibited neach a mark ed incapacity for the office and de veloped so many objectionable traits, l and has succeeded in so brief a time in making Louisiana a byword and reproach, not only among the States of the Union, but abroad, that we conceive there can be no impropriety in asking him in the name of the peo pie to "step down and out.n The admirable results which have' attended the action of the people in ' the parishes, and the readiness with which the objectionable'ofticials hitve handed in their resignations, leads as t to hope that Kellogg will follow the t excellent examples set' him by his own subordinates, and yield a cheer ful acquiescence to the v rv reason able demand for his resigantion, when it shall be presented. The absence of ,eBveral promipent ' men from the city 'at this tBnie is t thought to bhe significant. Sonieiave pgne to Washinglton 'to bolster tip Kellogg, while others bhave go to show the ruin he has wrought and the ablsolnte'netessity fir a change. 'We wduld suggest to the persons I who aay have this matter io charge, the advisability of asking not Qomly · Kellogg lbnt ill the objectionable men whb hold appointments under'ipt1 to'reitire.l, Ov JBaleti.. .

Grant as es to how this intellectual personage it managed to put in his time. Our by friend replied slowly, as if trying to . remember between sentences : "Well, lie rises about 9 and smokes. n- Then he breakfasts and smokes. Af of ter, his secretary opens his mail; and )D the President smokes." , "Does he ever read the papers ?" as "Oh, no; his secretary reads them e. and when he sees at passage or para tl graph likely to interest the President li- he marks it, The fles thus marked o- the Presidedt sonetimes- looks into, but he seldou l gets beyond one, and le thishe does not kbeep long unless it r- happens to be a sporting journal. Af vs ter this iutellectual effort he has via- i in stors." ''"And ,the President listens and e smokes t ' , "He smokes certainly ; but there is a popular delusion anent that silence. l Among his iqtimate friends and tiuui in ly he talks incessantly-that is, if the lk subject is n::t Iilitical. When p11 ities are touched he suddenly grows . reserved and sinks intosilence." I "And after i" Is "Well, tlhu comes an early dinner I and more smoking. After dinner I PI there Iis a drive of two and sometimes ,d three" hours. TThen tea and smoke. I After tea more company and more I [ ecigars. Sometimes he indulges in a walk, and then he is accompanied by a friend and a cigar. After a nighlt U cap and bed, e "Why, does he give no time to af , faire of thne government t" My dear'riUend; he gives air his e time here, as in Washington, to Gov ernment matters. This is done by " talking. Our Government is carried on through talk, in a social, pleasana t Sway. Every man, and sometimes the n woman, Itas an office to be got, either for himself or fridod. That is Gov- e e erument business, and hie or she talks i it at the President. Or there is a con tract in question. This is Govern- t iment bustnees of course." "And so we pay a hundred thiens. and dollarsa year directly and indi rectly, to have a man talk politics. However, that is a very inoffensive j t sort of a way to put in the time. How are his habits P' e ' "Not so good as his occupation. p They. talk abost a third ternm. -The t 1 way his Excellency is drinking and Ssmokin it.is not likely that he will live out llhe seed ternn.

Is the North 1ntera3tad. We copy the following from the New York Sus, which is a full answer to the question, whether the North is anxious for us to have a good, honest, capable government in the South : The people at the North may im agine that they are not sufferers by the atrocious robberies which have been perpetrated upon the people of the reconstructed States by the hlu man vultures who' have represented the Administration there, receiving the support and encouragement of President Grant; but if they think so they are greatly mistaken, for one part of the United States cannot be brought to ruin by misgovernment and excessive taxation without the rest of the country suffering thereby in many ways. There are many manufacturing cities and towns in the Northern States whose future prosperity largely depends upon a restoration of the Southern trade which formerly gave employtient to numerous mechantic and flactory ope ratives, but which has been greatly decreased or entirely lost, owing to the impoverished condition of the I Southlern people. Millions of dollars in Southern Stpte bonds are held by Northern capitalists. which yil;ld no income because the funds of these States have been stolen to enrich corrupt politiciaus. And failure of such States to meet the inutrest on their bonds held in Europe is proving ruinous to American credit abroad. The present scarcity of money throughout the country is owing, not to a lack of currency sufBicient to t meet legitimate demnands, but to the fact that the management of public i affairs in Washington, and in most of the Southern States, has been cor rupt and inefficient, the great aim of those intrusted with the highest pow era, having apparently been to accu mulate wealth for themselves, their I relatives and thleir personal friends, regardless of the interests of they,ieo pleat large. In order to afford ille gal gains to comparatively a few per sons, the whole country is exhOrbi tautly taxed, and its best interests are mercilessly sacrificed. Confide in Your Children, In American society there is an I amazing separation of old people from young. It comes, as we believe, of the lack of family intimacy be tween the old and yqung. To most parents children are incapable crea tures, to be taught, provided for, rul ed, disciplined, mentally condescend ed to, from babyhood to that aston ished morning when they discover I that the babies are young men and women in whose plan of existence ' they have little vital part. The moth er buys the daughtes's handkerchiefs and pins, up to the time her troussea is hmeeded.

They are not expected to bear their part in the entertainment of guests or cast a vote in the household commit tee of ways and means. The deep social questiou of the time, she does not discuss with her daughter. T'he issues oif war and peace, of politiei, t of hard tinra, private st raits or pub- a lie dangers, the father talks over with his st4ipid neighbor, but not with his quick-witted, eager smos. Not i.ak ilg their children their companions ' and'friends, parents are yet smitten C with pain and hitter sense of Ingrati- . tede, when they find that their holdl- ' dren, young men and women, do not a care to make companions and friends ti of them.

Farm and Household Colum.. e I'L.OWIN OUCUAIWS SAtLLOuW.. - r If the land is plowed near large fruiti trees the plow should be adjuted to run only a few inches deep. The , ost plausible argument that can be advanced against the practice ,f plowing the ground arouad fruit tree, of any kind is the fact that evezy tree will send out a system of coruon al roots just beneath the surface of the soil, whichwill again throw *.ut 1 branch rootlets in a horizontal dizec tion, all of which will continue t.o f multiply until the entire surface of the ground is completely occupied with open mouths of hungry rootlets, ready to drink in the first supply of t nourishment that is dissolved by the falling showers. It is as muuch a legitimate habit of a fruit tree to provide a close network of roots near the suffice of the ground as it is to send other roots downward into the earth. Every fruit tree, most decid uous oruamental and timber trees, Sas well as evergreens of all kinds, when growing on dry upland, will send down a long tap-root, for the purpose of reaching moisture to sup. ply the growing branches during a dry period in the growing season. Let the tap,-root be removed, and the tree will make but slow growth, be cause its habit has been interfered with. The same is truite touching the ,upper system of coronal or secondary roots near the surlface of. the ground. These are what are 'ronperly called the fieeder of tlhe parent stein. They should not be antilated nor remov ed, as they usually are cut off and turu away by the plow. All vegeta tion should be kept down around fruit trees as fair from the body as th e extremity of the longest branches by hoeing the surf ce over frequently, or by the application of a few inches in depth of a mulchh. Fruit trees maiv bear \well when cvery coronal root has been removed with the plow; but if those roots had not been removed the crop of fruit would have been more abundant.--New York Paper. SHOULD HORSES WAR BLINDERS We never could see ' ahat vice or de formity lay in a horse's ey4 that should make it necessary to cover it up, and shut out its owner from at least two-thirds of its rightful field of vision. The poets say that old ago looks backward; but we never heard such an idiosyncrasy charged upon the horse. The theory that a horse is less apt to be frightened when shut out from everything behind him, we suspect to be a fallacy, else saddle. horses and war-horses would be duly blinded. Every horse is as familiar fith his own carriage as with his owua tail. and, as far as his "personal" fortitude is coneerned, is no more disturbed at being persued by one than by the other. As for the other scare-crows th;at come up behind, they are mostly so familiar to the animal, that, the more fully the horse can perceive them, the more quietly does ,he. submit to their approach. Then it is such a pity to ove~ eup one of the most brilliant features of this most brilliant creature. The horse has borne such a hand in the civili zation ofthis rgh-and.tumble world, that it seems not so mnosh a etruelty as a dliIcorurtesy, as well as adisgrace, to hide his form with emlbarrassing toggery. No wonder we estimate the force in the world as bhorse-power; no Wonder the Roeinus and the Germane, each in their own languages, desig nate their aristocracy as ridegs; no wonder their deseandants made ehiv. airy a synonym for their highest vir tue.
