Some one proposed to dam up Cane river for one hundred and fifty dol lars; we know a man that will damn it up and doan, for fifty cents. No work, no pay. It is quite amusing to hear the "faithful press" of Louisiana heaping all manner of odium on Messrs. Foster and Phelps, who were received but a short month ago with shouts of glory by the radicals of New Orleans. But they are determined not to overdo the thing this time, for we fail to see .abe round "shining virtue" in the new Committee. "A burned child dreads fire" and- our loyal editors will await the report this time to give their opinions upon the personnel of Messrs. Hoar & Co. When a Republican fails to steal or lie, he is immediately charged with being a Democrat ; and we hope those Democrats of the North that gave aid and comfort to Radicals during our late "unpleasantnoess'" are well satis fled with the "glory" they are now receiving. RAIN-Rain, when will it cease We have had but two or three clear days in several weeks. Cane river continues to rise at a rapid rate, and in a few days we will have steamers at our wharf. Our latest from the SL.ma serves but to confarm the frst reports we had that the boat will prove a total los. This has been an unlucky win ter for Red River boats, four having met their fate in the muddy and tortu ous stream. Demagogues of the Republic. We fail to see that the modern fa natical Republican, have lost any of their blood thirsty ferosity since the days of Robespierre and his cut. throat Jacobins of the French revo lution--an occasion, seems all that is required to have a renewal of the hor rors ýf the "reign of terror." We have in our Republic villains only too willing to play the part of Murat, and who publicly proclaim their desire to emula:te the example of those inhuman savages, rendered more brutal by contact with intelligence, who have in all ages well nigh rendered the name of Liberty a by-word and a reproach. In the halls of Congress we hear men bellowing war and extermina tion against ia people whose only crimeo is a simple difference of opin ion as to how the citizen shall enjoy liberty. Morton and Logun are the grand re.servoirs from wll hom the les ser vessels obtain their supply of venom and abuse. Upon the simple request of Senator Thurman of Ohio, for the authority he must produce to sustain his conduct in dispersing the leg:l legislature of Louisiana, these worthies assail the Southern people with all the bitterness of nature, and endeavor to sustain the acts, totally without warrant of law or facts, of Gen. Grant their President, and Slier idan their Lieutenant, of whom we shall speak herein, by a wholesale abuse of a people already driven to dispair by bad government and robbery. This style of "spread ea. gleismn" has become of late to be re garded as "sound coin," and vitupera tion and foul-mouthed falsehoods are to a certain class of the North-evi dences of logical statesmenship and pure loyalty. What a scene this must present to and European monarchist, an example well calculated to con vince him of the utter fallacy, save in theory, of our modern form of gov ernment; government that preaches brotherly love, but conceals under the cloak of civil liberty, the drawn dagger of extermination to those who would enjoy freedom as they desire not as they are told. It is the repe tition of the acts of the demagogical puritan, who canted upon religious freedom with their lips and acted in burning, slaying, and cropping the ears of Quakers, Catholics, Baptists and others, with their hands. Phil. Sheridan, whose acts are not only a disgrace to. his country, but whose demand to be allowed to exterpate the white people of Louisiana, are re volting to the civilized world, is a hero to the easilysatisfied, sanctimo nious Caligulas. Even Democratic New York is in a measure imbued with respect for these cheap military Gods, and enacts a resolution of faith in little Phil's patriotism. Ye Gods! what patriots are we to be blessed with nowadays-the murderer of Pie gan Indian women and children, and the insulter of civilized humanity is manufactured into an American pa triot. How long does. it require to convince the true feeling citizen of the North, that they are being made the dupes of a set of as villainous dema gogues as ever existed 9 Will it be when to late to save even the form of our freedom For we assure them that the citadel of our liberties is be ing assailed, while its guardians sleep in the fancied security of the patriot ism of Grant, Sheridan and their fol lowers. The Natehitoches Repsulican, in speaking of the enjoining of V. A. BarrOen sheriff elect by his competi for, intimates that such should not be allowed. We are at a los to un derstand such statement~d Mr. Hyamas who ran against Mr. Barron certainly has a right to contest the validity of aim in theourts of the State esresto do e, in-wog-j-j'-i- to6 see what the Repumicsa has to do in thie matter. These "pap sucking" shbeets have of late become so sanctifed as to io agine all ofices in Louisiana were ex- i pressly made for their benefit. While on this subject we would advise W, H. Tunaard to put his name at the head of its columns as Editor, for any one with a grain of sight can see his handwork in its few sqalbs. We volunteer this advice in advance of some effusion he migkt publish for which no one would appear respon sible.

As an evidence of the extent to which f facts are perverted by the President I e and his friends in and out of Con. I Sgress with regard to Southern mat- 4 ters, and particularly that of Lonisi- I s ana, we have to refer only to the - threadbare story of the "thriving vil. SIlage of Counhatta," and the sad fate u of the "'cealthy young men from the 1 North who came there to build up the 4 n prosperous place," and were outrage- I Soutsly murdered for their pains.- I 1 Twitchell, the surviving nice young I e man from the North, with his friend e and fellow looser Dewees, must feel I s proud of the honest distinction thatI their brothers won for the name, when r they yielded up their lives "for po. i - litical opinion sake," for had these F men lived that virtue (which lives - only in epitaph at best) which death I earned them, would never hlave been ; B acquired. A. careful study of the - facts of the case will at once dispel I f this beautifully wrought vision of the e Radical leaders, and the tears which I , seem to flow and the grief that har rows up their souls at the death of i B these worthy young emigrants, will B be found a grief that reminds one of B the lachrymal efforts of the croco I dile. F The formation of Red River parish f for political purposes and to furnish 1 a "home and field" for destitute and R clamorous radical officials, is a mat- E e ter ot history, and was fought against s by the conservative people of this 1 parish to the last. Dewees and " Twitchell came to Louisiana with the I same intent of all the Carpet-bag gers, only they hoped to make their I plunder by a different mode, and in a more genteel (?) and braver manner. i 1 The capital (I) brought by these "two 1 t enterprising young men . from the i ,North," as our (f) gracious President 4 terms them, consisted of a complete i e set of burglar's tools, and the photo- 1 - graph of E. W. Dewees proceeded I 5 him to New Orleans, and was dis- I r played in the rogues gallery by Gen. I i Badger, then Chief of Police of that i 3 city. These burglars tools were stor- I - ed by Twitchel and Deowsees in the warehouse of Lisso & Bros., and there I captured by the officers of the law some time after, who being of the I 1 same party as these worthies, hushed i B the matter up. Every dollar owned ( I by these men, and every restage of pub. I lic improvement put up by them, which I I consists onlyof residences for themselves I 9 and families, was paid for by plunder- I SIs the other white citizens of the Par- . ish and State; Dewees in the capacity I of Legislator and Twitcheil as Sena- I tor, have the reputation all over the SState of being two of the grandest I and most cheeky villains in the Gene F ral Assembly. They came to ourI b Stats to follow their calling, that of burglars and thieves, and finding a I better and less dangerous field in the - Republitan party for their purpose, I they at once joined that "noble hand" " and have at the expense of lhonor and - law, acquired a fortune, and il tmhe * opionion of the Mulnhhaueen Presi B dent, are heroes and aartysj to tihe B holy (?) cause of republicel princi Sples. SWe demand, for a susttioing of f these charges, that the conIumittee of a Congress now in session id New Or - leans call upen the leading (ititens of p IRed River, to testify to the facts. - The following gentlemen Save been summoned to appear in Neu Orleans, to testify before the Congressional .

This individl h,as lately combined that of :1 witness and an object of in . timi hation to his other numerous qualities. Sheridan, we understand from private sources, places great faith in the truthfulness of this holy (?) Judge and holds up the statement of Myers' treatment by our people, as strong evidence of our "bandit" pro clivities. Unfortunately for Sheridan this evidence upon which he relies so much won't bear handling, for no man that knows Myers would believe I him on oath; he says that "we ran I him away from the bed-side of his dying father, and ostracised him on account of political opinion only." It is notorious that Myers neglected in a shameful and heartless manner his aged parent, and that kind neigh bors fed and cared for him while his son izerer called to see him at all, du. rinig his long and last illness. Peter Robinson, a worthy colored man, tes tifies on oath, that Myers employed him as nurse to old Myers ; that he continued as such for more than four months; that Henry C. Myers never cai lled to see his father during the whole time, and that often in his walks, the son passed the house of his father and did not even stop to enquire of his I health; and said Peter Robinson states, that the father was fed, medicined and nursed mostly at the expense of some of the Israelites of Natchitoches, and that he, (Robinson,) would not continue longer to nurse, because Henry C. Myers, this lovely son, re fused to pay him. While here from boyhood, we chal lenge him to prove even when he was a Democrat that he ever entered de cent society. lie has been a thief and a vagabond all his life, and it is but reasonable to suppose that the fact of his becoming a radical, in no way injured his social standing, for to the knowledge of the oldest inhabitant he never had any. His respect even for the memory of the author of his being, is exemplified by .the manner in which he uses it, simply to gratify his inordinate taste for lying, and for "party purposes." We sick and tire of such men, but when they villify a whole community by such slanders as this, we cannot Irefrain from expressing our feelings. Our witnesses just gone to New Or leans, will tell the Commnittee and Gen. Sheridan a tale quite different to that of Myers' in relation to himself, and if all are not convinced that My ers is a puppy, thief and liar, then truth and the English language have lost their force-and "With all the tokens of a knave complete, If he be honest, his is a tkhv'lish cheat." ThIe Northern Rtalcals seem to have become suddenuly self-complaia cent when thie President in his late message on Louisiana washes his hI ands of the responsibility of the ac tion of Federal troops, and think the American public are to be satiseed with thie worn out verdict of "nobody Ito blame"; but we would inquire of Ithese complacent patriots, if this use Sof troops was all wrong, was illegal Why repeat it at Vicksburg and why not undo what has been done in Loa isians by placing the eonstituents in s tatlu guo ? Or has the declaration of certain radicals become orthodox that I "when once a ruler does a wrong he must not correct it 9 It may be to certain people that this concession from the President that he did an un constitutional act in dispersing the legal legislature of Louisiaina, is a point gained in principle, but we think that this repentance without restitution is all bosh. The better way for the President to shoiw his '"faith is by work," the fruit of which should be the withdrawal ot his sup. port and allow the installing of the legally elected Speaker, Wilts, and his memibers of the neeral Assembly, until which is done, we will conceive all this twaddle in the late menssage rabout "responsibility and orders," to .amount to nothing. ,The President has overstepped law Sin twenty instancese in the South, and .he has never yet corrected it. If this . "I don't know any bettern excuse is 1to pass current always, we would ,like to knhaow it. As long as Grant Sruns in this line, he can expect noth Siug but oppesition from us, and as he Iseems determined to keep up his Sviolence, we suppose the resistance will be perpetual.

Sheridan can now make his report, and we defy him to point to a single instance of the ki;ihig i,. man for political purposes. ,We conclude this with an :tt:a;' coppied from the La.
