"They Live By Cheating." That is whlat the lVealtlhieRt N'ero in. 1 Northern Louisiana Said, Amton, ret Other 'lhings,. of the Radicals. foll ing (Shreveport (La.) Letter, of the 15th, to Inti Cincinuati Commercial.) on There is a colored man here who )110 has done what not one iu a quarter dist of a million of his race have succeed- on 1 ejn in doing since emencipa- mel t n. Born and reared a slave, he ry has since the war accumnulated about clai twelve thousand dollars' worth of Ste property. The name of this man is ion Abner Hall. lie has the confidence Tre and respect of all classes and colors. not In company with a friend I went mw around to see Hall. lie works at of I the foundry of L. W. Jones as a pat- uea tern-maker, earning good wages and get putting in every day. I asked him ren about the political situation of his cloy race in tihs region, and first as to his the own political views. He said he had Ho always voted with the white people, rea and used all his influence with his Hlo race to get them to do so. "The etc white people own this country," he wh said, "and we must live here if we the live anywhere. A cold country, such poi as up North, dosen't suit us. This the is our home, and te must be at peace otl , with the white people. They will do tin , the fair thing if the colored people do. My idea is that the Conservative par- on ty is the party for us colored people ad; to go into. me ,. "They always nominate the best pri id men for office, and always go for a ed peaceable government and low taxes. tie n These high taxes which the Radicals me put on the country finally come out ral of the poor negro, if he had sense chi enough to see it. A white patty and an a black party, such as we have had iul so much of here, will ruin any coun pre try. Look what it has done for Lou- gri isiana. The Radical party is a cheat- pe ing party. Look how they got us all M( to deposit our money in what they pe called the Freedmen's Bank and then of stole it. Little do they do for the el nigger except to get his vote and Pr steal what little money he makes ap throughl the banks." m( "Did you lose anything by the an Freedmen's Bank," I asked. is "No, sir; but I had a whole year's ka earnings there, and just did get it lal out in time. I smelt a rat, I took it so out and put it in a bank run by men pe who live here, and who I know will ha do right. The next day I tried to lic get out fifty-nine dollars that a friend Ai had in the old trap, but it had done ae shut down, and the money went up be the spout. Al, sir, xou don't know M how muIch worry and suffering the X poor colored men have had about la that bank. Some had in three htqi- vt dred dollars, and from that all the ly way down to fifty cents. re "That, sir is just one of the main pa reasons why the Conservatives car- es ried the election in this parish. The bi colored men voted with them right un straight along. I think I influnenced fI as manny as two hundred myself. I tim reckon more. I worked as hard as I lii R could. I put in my time, for I knew tI I was doing a good work for my race." i "The Conservatives carried the m election, did they " w "Yes, sir, carried it in this parish cc by over six hundred majority, as true in as you and I stand here. Te count- Si ing out of the men we elected to the fa Legislature was the biggest chleat la Sthat ever was. What's the use of t, having an election if they can do tllhatt ir The Radical party live by cheating. L It is all that they have got to go on. Nobody pretends that they carried l' h. the election in this parish. You can't find a Radical who will say it. They ill know we can beat them, and that the ol he Ueturning Board cheated us out of d e what we had fairly worn. The Con servative party, sir, as much as has 3 been said about it, wouldn't do that n mean." "Did the colored men vote the Con- n servative ticket freely and voluntari- ti Sly " "Yes, sir; the election was the p fairest and most quiet we have ever c d had here. Everybody says that. But a the Returning Board counted in the d very men that were beaten. What's p the use of having an election when t 8., they can do that way I" j I mentioned tiht it was necessary 1 to count out a few Conservatives so I as to give the Republicans the Leg islature. But Mr. Hall protested that I it was no fair way to do, and that if 1 the will of the majority can be set aside that way, we had as well abel. ish elections and give the country over entirely to thie Returning Boards. "John Brown," called the janitor, and John Brown carmte out with meas ured tread, while one of the boys hum med: "John Brown's body Is strapped upon his back." "John Browi do you think it is the e of correct thing for a man to go whoop. ing up and down the streot,Aickinf ES att the doors, calling to pedestrians and declaring that he can lick any four men in Detroit?" and "Not hardly," admitted Brown. Lib- "No sir, it isn't.' In the first place you couldn't lick one side of one fll li grown man, and in the next place yon've no business getting drunk and hel0owling around. What would this country have been to-day, Jobhn Brown, ifsnuch men as Washington, Morse andl Fulton had jiamboreed around ?" "I won't do it again." "I know you won't--not for thirty -days. You'll go to-bed at candle-light there, rise with the lark, and the gi nearest thing you'll get to whisky will be beef sop and baric varnish," -Detroit Free Proes.

All of the Senate amendments have been enacted. New Orleans customhomise P gets $75,000. Among the bill which ides remained on Senate calender at the ord, close of the session to-day and which, pro therefore, failed are the following: Ipo House general amnesty bill which Sen reached the Senate in December 1873; met House bill for protection of elections of t etc., known as the caucus force bill, hea which got no further in the Senate labs than its second reading. All various lea; postal telegraph bills introduced in 1 the Senate tailed in the Senate, anid re; others of a similar character origina- dou ting in the House failed in the lHouse. ses The following bills were also left dirt on the Senate calender amnd tailed at ,nei adjournment: Senate bills for pay- the ment of French spoilation claims ; to des protect navigable waters of the Unit- tlhi t ed States from injuries and obstrlc- Del tion; declaring the true intent amnd lBut t meaning of the Union and Pacific of1 railroad acts to pay the two per cent gan 5 claim of the States of Ohio, Indiana of I and Illinois; to establith a bureau of Ha l internal commerce; to, make general Ke, provisions in regard to cable tele- tiir - graphic communication; to grant Pal pensions for service in the war with Ne I Mexico; to ameud an act granting lah' r pensions to the survivors of the war Ma t of 1812; to regulate the counting of gin e electoral votes for President and Vice Fly I President; bill of joint committee of t appointed to frame a better govern- takl went for the District of Columbia ing 3 and many ether Senate bills of minor car importance.

Got too much already fuir dis at niggab." ti "How is that, Uncle Billy ? Is i lil R- not a good thing to be equal before i- the law " . *Now, Marse Boss," grunted Billy be plaintively, "dai's jist whar de misery a er comes in. We're ekal befo' de law, ii ut an' dar yer hit onur weak pint. Befo' lii he do waw, of niggah stole chicken an' t's pig, yerjerked him ip, guy hinm thir- I en ty-nine lashes, an' let him . go.

It's nat'- a or, ral fur niggah to steal pig and chick- a as- en, fryin' size. Yer knows it is, an' m- tain't no use tryin' to stop us. Now we 1 unes are willin' to let you nons alone, a and you all jist let us alone ou dis pint, We're powerfal weak on dis t the pint, Marse Boss." Just here a preverse and disloyal I ' spirittempted me to hint to Uncle a SBilly that the colored people were an indebted to their iepublican friends oy for this change in their statbes. "Well, den, Marse Boss," said he, c'"all Ise got to say is, de laws get to be change, hab a law for de white a man and a law for de black man." d Strange as it may seem, some of this our best citizenis echo Uncle Billy's Ssentimuent, They are inclined to Sview the negro's minor transgressions in a lenient light, and I know that sonme of our Democratie judges im pose lighter penalties upon colored irtsmen for sall offenses than they glt would do in cases where the guilty the parties were white. y Before Lucle Billy left I asked him how he would like to sit down at the table with white folks at the hotels. "Great poddlemighty 1" exclaimed oh the good old man. "'I allow yonse -il tryin' to make fun o' die chile. Why, you know yourself dat no eullad pus son ebber lets a white man see 'rm the|t e of ey kin lielp it 1" rot. Thisis strictly true. The ordinary SorL Southern negro will not eat in. the I / presence of a white sjcctat&r. '"Well, Uncle Billy," I said, "it is! Fa: very evident that you don't want any civil rights." P ''ot anyting ino', I thank you," r replied Billy.

Rural World. The Dressed Weight of Animlals. d Farmers, who have had but little ex Sl perienlce in feeding animals for the f market, are often disappolinted be. if cause their beef and pork does not i, weigh as nuclh as they thought it t, would. They are, likely to overlook i- certain points which ought always to i, be taken into account when estima. t, ting the dressed weight of animals. . . Age. An old animal will not if dress as much in proportion to its t, looks as a young and growing one. Af 2. The degree of fatness. A cres. I- ture which will weigh a great deal of miora than one equally itas large, but r- which has not been well-fattened, of 3. Alnount of grain which has been s, fed. An animal whih:l had twenty or re thirty bushels'of meal will dress muooh heavier than one which was in eqally to good, order when the fattening was r- colmmenced, and which may look 's equally well when it is finisliA, but which has been fed only half as much D- meal. a- 4. Length of tinie in which grain e. has been fed. A creature which has Is been mealed for five or six months will weigh more than one which has n, about the same quantity of meal, but ie has been fed only half as long, ir In all eases liberal and long con. sr- tinned feeding is essential to the at. nt tainment of any great success in fat. n- tening animals of any kind. ill of Protection of Iron from Rust.-The er following mixture is said to be an ex 12 cellent brown coating for protecting b. iron and steel from rust: Dissolve he two parts crystallized chloride of iron, two parts chloride of antimnony, and it one part tannin in four parts water, and apply, with a sponge or rag and to let dry.
