JIane SIly. , The Colored People and the White Radical. There is a.very signiclcmt and in strnctive lesson to be fcand in the discords and feuds now breaking out among the Republicans everywhere within' the State. The recent faction riots in St. James and Plaquemins are only straws. The great wind has blown thenm to us as evidences of its power and direction. Plainly the crisis we have all fore. seen and anticipated is approaching, if not actually at hand, The igno rance and credulity and prejudice by imeans of which a mere handful of white :adventurers have arrayed the colored people in blind and bitter hoe ti!ity to us, moderates under the in. fluences of time and experience Com mon misfortune, the stern arguments of poverty, lack of employment, gaunt aid visible depression, threatening rain-these have touched, the negro as no words or protestations ever did ; taught hint the folly of the course he is pursuing: warned him of the cet tasn result thereof. Perhaps the pro .ess of the awakening was quickened more than we suspect by the 14th of September. It must have been a se- 1 rious appeal to thee colored people's better, sense to find, after so many years of fear and suspicion, that the whites, flushed with victory and unrestrained in their power for good or evil, manifested not the slightest enmity- towards, them ; developed none of those murderous and revenge fol instincts which they have been taught to believe were latent an only awaiting an opportudity for display. One canuot well doubt that the con. viction growing out of -this testimony did much to vitalise the discontent felt by the colored people with their pretended friends and self-imposed raleisi 'They had taken up these men because they were persuaded it was necessary in order to preserve themselves and perpetuate the pri leges accruing from the war; yet here; by one supreme flash of. truth and enlightepnment, they found they had beenfalsely persuaded, and that the danger they were guarding against sopaiunally had no exigence cave ini theearpetvbagger's unleaen facy I .. It seems likemnpgie, the madden out- I croppiPg of independence and rebel lion among the negroes in half the pariskreA of the State ; "and like poetic r justice, tile carpet-bagger's growl and a menase, which keeps even pace every.

"Lord, what a tPhQW wus te p prvlng.remark O h5tO judge of t a glass of milk. . . ' From the Shreveport Times we extract the following Which contains sound sense. Let our people read it to the negroes and ask them the question,| if this thing will pay them in the long run. Now that troops are here and wholesale arrests have been made, is there not a rebound in all this which will hurt some one and that seriously: The stake we are playing for is the redemption of Louisiana. If we lose, we lose everything. The triumph of the radicals in November insures the permanency of the Kellogg usurpa tion ; it means, too, the persecution of the taxpayers of the State with re. hewed energy, and the ultimate Afri canization: of Louisianaspr the anaili 'lation of the negro power through blood. We paint no fancy picture; the history of Martinique, of San Do mingo and Jamaica illustrates the truth of what we say; if we are heat en in this election, the whites will have either to abaidon the State or resort to arms, aye to a fierce war upon the negroes to protect them selves and their property, The North ern fools who are urging on this issue by encouraging the organization of the negroes against the whites, know nothing of the native brutality of the negro, nor of the desperate straights to which the whites are driven, nor of the terrible crisis they are urging on-a crisis which troops cannot con trol-because. troop cannot control desperate men who are resolved to venture their lives to redress their wrongs. There are two-other classes who do not seem to comprehend these things -a small class of white men who re fuse to register and aid their people in carrying the election and avoiding this crisis, and the negroes who are again rallying to the support of the thieves they have put in power and thus invoking upon theirlheads a ter- I rible and bloody rettibution. A IRISHMAN's Larnm'-Here is an Irish gentleman's letter to his son in college.: . My Dear 8en--I write o6: send you two, pair of my old breeches, that you I may 'have a new coat made out of I them. Also some new socks, ihich yourmother hasjust knit by cuatting down, some of mine. Your mother 1 sends you ten dollars without msy knowledge; and for fear you may notuse it wisely, I have kept back l half and only send you five. Your mother and I are well, except that your sister has got the measles, which we think would spread among the other girls if Tom had not had it be " fore, and, he is the only one left. II hope you will do honor to my teach-t ings; if not, you are, an ass, and 1 your mother and myself your affec. tionate parents. KRa IuT To YoYasaLr.-YoU have trouble--your feelings are injured, your husband is unkind, you wife frets, your home is not pleasant, your friends do not treat you fairly, and things in general move unpleasantly.

[ nia for biblical comparisons, says the Cincinnati Commercial, seems to Jave broken out to au nnusual extent since the recent publication of the Republican Congressional address, which was full of them. On Wednes day last the Tribune said that Beech er "preached in the most famous pul. pit the world has ever seen since Pati preached on the Hill of Mars." On Friday it said chloroform was the "greatest boon to suffering humanity since the stars shown over Bethle hem." Now, why not carry out this sort of, thing all through I Lydia Thompson is the most remarkable dancer since the daughter of Herodias danced before Herod, and Was re warded with the helad of the Baptist. The horse lster, surpasses any spe cimen of its kind since the Apocalyp tic horse. The wine at last night's feast was the best that has been serv ed since the marriage in Cana of Galilee.. .The. falsehoods expressed by Parton are the .moet, appalling ,known since the days of Ananias and Sapphira. The recent hurricane re minds as of the tempestuous wind called Euroclydon, mentiuoned in the Acts of the Apostles. The mourning over the lost child in Philadelphia re sembles the lamentation heard in Ramah over the lost children. The removal of Collector Casey would be a more wonderful thing than has ta ken place 'in that line since the remo val of Levi, the son of Alpheus, sit ting at the receipt of customs. But those. who are so fond of Scriptural comparisons should see that there is some sort of 'sense in such as they make. Ax INxAMoUS CHAaGS.--A special dispatch to the Chicago Times, dated Kankakee, Ill., Oct. 8th, contains the following : Kankakee, Ill., Oct, 8.--The Inde pendent Reform Mass-meetiug to-day was largely attended by. the farmers from all over the country. . ' ... After dinner, W. A.' MeKeighan, of Pontiac, made. one of his .character= tstic, speeches, forcible, tratbful; and convncluing. In the course of his re" marks lhe Rterred to the carpet-.,b administration in Louisiaina, And asp'ke of Willian Pitt Kellogg, not 6nl as a usurper of t(hat power, butso ablack leg and a thief, stating that he went to school ta Kellogg, who at one .time borrowed MeKeighan's father's watch and forgot to return it. Thisis simply awful, and demands an immediate answer from Kellogg. We have believed a great deal about the usurper, and after his tremendous crime overthrowing; the legitimate State Government, we ought,,perhaps, not to be surprised, at aanything that he may have done, or may do ; but stealing a watch is a trifle lows' than we thought the man lad ever fallen. Mr. Kellogg should: hold Mr. Keighan to a strict accountability for the in famous charge.--~ 0. B Ehslses " -----** ~--- A new muddle in Louisiana has arisen out of the, addresa of the Con servativp State Committee, which hlia provoked Gov.

Farm, and Household Column. CHEAP VINEGAR.-Take a quantity of common Irish potatoes, wash them until they are thoroughly clean, place them in a large vessel, and "boil them until done. Drain off carefully the water that they were cooked in, straining it, if necessary, in order to remove every particle of the potato. Then pqt this potato water in ajug or keg, which set near the store, or in some place where it will be kept warm, and add one pound of sugar to about two and one-half gallons of the water, some hop yeast, or a small portion of whiskey. Let it stand three or four weeks, and you will have excellent vinegar at a cost of six or seven cents per gallon.-4our. hal of Chemistry. TAKE TIME FOR MALS.--A very bad, and probably the most injurious habit the American people have-es pecially mechanic--ia that of rapid eating. We should eat slowly, and give our victuals more time to digest, and we would find it much better for our health. Germans do not rise so hastily from the table as we; for time with them is not so precious; life is not so crowded; time can be found for after-dinner talk. The cigars and coffee, which appear before the cloth is temoved, keep the company to gether; rind in that state of snffused comfort which quiet digestion creates, they hea without anger the opin. ions of antagonists. To Dr Pr uxs.-Gather the plums when no too ripe. Prick each one with a drning-needle in several pla ces. Taie half a pound of sugar to each pound of' fruit. Melt the sugar with a little water; skim it thorough ly ; then add the plums, and boil for half an hour. Lift out the plums, and boil the sugar -for twenty minutes longer, or until it nearly candies, which you can tell by taking up a small quantity in a spoon and letting it drop down until It threads out in strings. Turn it over the plums, and put them to dry tin a cool oven, stir ring them up every few minutes. When candied, put them into boxes. ENGLISH JUiaET,-Tike one wine. glass of lran4y,and, twq tablespoon fulse of moist sugar. Mix well these ingredients, then our upon this mix ture one quart of, milk warm from the cow.
