The skirmishes and slighli engage ments now being fonght: by the dem ocracy with republicanism, in the Northern, State and manicipal elec. tions, all tend to encourage the dem ocracy in a high degree. New IHanipshire, although the third term and Southern outrage business were serverely denounced, and the contest made squarely anti-adminis tration, the republicans lost when it came to National aflhirs, and in the State election, had nothing to brag of. But Connecticut, swamped as it were, the entire concern, showing that the mighty tidal wave was still sweeping on, notwithstanding inde pendents and others, whose hate for Democracy in the abstract would make them almost lose their liberty before they would acknowledge the justness and patriotism upon which those principles were founded, made haste to tell the world that the over whelming victory of the Democracy could not be attributed to the "sound ness of the doctrines they enuncia ted," but that the people were "tired of the rule of radicalism." Even so, bjpt at the same time why has not this movement, this "tire some affair," been checked ? Still the mighty wave rolls on and threat ens to ingulf all parties, all men in its march; the march of the bone and sinew of the country, tired of the worship of false Gods; tired of jack a-lantern patriotism; wearied and worn out with jobbery and thieving in high places, to a return to first principles-those principles for which the founders of the Republic con tended, and which they left for our enjoyment. Much has been said and much more written about "progressive par ties"-'+men of advancing ideas;" in fact of all those new theories, whose practice for the past few years have wrought such a mighty change in ,hu man affairs, and this pet parhj of the American people has been extolled to the sky, as a part and parcel of the mighty dreams of Mills Vaughn and Huxly.. This republican party has been shouted over, praised, and even worshipped by Americans in the madness of the hour, as a thing of God-like attributes and power. How sad must be the awakening from this rose-tinted dream; what must be the feelings of those whose faith led them to prostrate themselves in the dust before this bright shining idol, to see it stripped of the thin painting with which human imaginatioq, human bigbtryhad enveloped it, and it stood forth to'the gaze of the common horde in nll its naked deformity, reeking in tlie oon-day sun of honest, healthy public opinion, the thing, that like the wooden horse of Troy, we were upon the point of demolishing our walls to admit within the citadel of our liberties. All the good the Republican party has done this country has been more than reqmted by thie horrors of its reign-by the indignities, outrages and debts it has heaped upon the people. The genius of the age mighlt have dema'nded the abolition of slave r, but nature itself would., shrink with horror from the murder andpil. hlag of the Southern people, and the destructiqn of the lierties of the iahites of 4he entire Union to accomplish it.. History will accord no blame to Robespierre and Danton, for their sac tlom iU demaniding and asserting, the lib~rty.0f the French people; but all cehristians consign the memory of these men aid their followers, to eternal obloquy for their reign of blood and terror; no matter what causes might have existed; no mat ter hiow muich Frenchmen might have suffelted,' pi the moral world must ever be shocked by snch barbarous retribution as that which was meeted out to Louis XVI and his nobles. Will impartial history not consign, to the same fate those, who,from a false spirit of philanthropy, augmented by a bitter hatred to the South, wouald cosign to a worse fate ten millions of widtes, tieir own flesh and bleed, in granting freedom to four millions blacks t : i The bitter and malignant per~sen * Tfostered and. kept: 8live in ;he breast of the American people by this Rhpublican:party, has spent it self, and the eyes of all, now being oijan behold the 'yawning chabsm of dse.sptlsm at their feet. T'e folloi fuittt thle mandates ,of p i part' and theo dictates of ihts leaders, is to Splunge tlzneselvs into slavery. This is sfle r~Casn for thi'mighty reaetion ;~ it ip but history repeating i~tlfi; tliht the.

' The iighL r of t...e i . n, -vit o troy the enemies of country and in dependence, who have so long used and shamed Aiuerica nnd the world, under the guise of the Republicanl Be United-Be Firm. Never before in the history of Lou isiana has an occasion existed when the patience ot a people was so rude ly tried as now ; and where fortitude and forbearance was so greatly de manded. After being tried in the furnace; passing through such times, the thoughts of which are enough to make one shudder a greater selfdenial than ever, is now required, of our peo ple. The motto of "try, try' again," will now become us:properly. We think much over this when we hear so many of our friends speak despondingly of the situation and so hopelessly of the future. This, to us, is childish, and unbecoming the pa triot sons of Louiaiana ; heroes of the suffering rule of radical thieves, and plunderers for seven years, should not be cast down whn when we 'are upon the eve of success, although, through mistaken judgment, our friends should have caused us, by false 'promises from our enemies, to pause in our .advance to victory. Now is the time to try pure patriot ism; the time when we should be more united, more determined than ever to secure the boon. foi which we con tend. Individuals, pure and.patriotic, may, from mistaken policy, stray off in search of succort' for our people, thisjs no reason we should ,denounce them or dispair of ultimate victory in the end. 'The great cause for which we contend should ever be in our minds. Tioe grand prineiplcs, the success of which should eves animate the bosom of all who desire to be free 'must over lie our gniding star. Prin ciples% not men, are whait we contend for and no one should despair of gain-, ing ultimate success. " Examples are not wanting in his tory to show how perseverance in the end achieved success over almost hopeless obstacles; but .with us, the prdspbits, although Beoemingly gloomy, are brighter and more cheer ing titan for any time: within, the past eight years. Our ranks are solid and determinationi fird ; the 'cause for which 'we contend, is hnorable and just and we. have the. approving aeelamatioh' of our fellow-citizens all over the Union. Look theda to what our enemies contend for ; 'iothing save a continued reign of plunder; their ranks are shattered andl broken; the are convicted"' and :bctdemned by all honest -men; our banne1'is planted upon .the outer works .apd with one more charge the citadol is our own.' "" Let no one iatternpt to divido us, such would be fatal; let therebe no murmuring, such gives assurance to our foes; but let all be united,' be determined to achieve for ourselves and our country that liberty which the God of nature.has planted in our bosoms arid which the principles of true government demand. When Vice-President Wilson via its the South, or "al3r' "ther man" North' say. anythfbg im! comhdiment to us, not in. complimoent, '.but. the trunth,,e tee that some, and we are pained to say many, begiti the "slob' bering'business--coxaxapplamdefai'i on-the-back style way of sioiying. to. those:peeple hormnch we love t!hem and their trays.

At a very e rly age ho gave prom ise of a futui life Mf extraordinary brilliancy amn usefilness, for at the tender years f eighteen, he could have graduate I at Center college with the first how lrs, but was persuaded to postpone t e takink of this degree for two year . Soots after leaving college lie he wa admitted to the Bar, and directly quired a large and lu crative . pract ce in co-partnership with another distingiished member of the prof ssion,f Slack Kinkade. Shortly after his he ;vas put forward by the democ tie party to represent the Ashland District in Congress, from whence o denoocrat had been sent for many years. The old Clay whigs at that lime, thonght it was a piece'of temez ty on tbh part of the young demoer t, andi laughed at the idea that he c uld thiclk of defeating them in their stronghold, but defeat them he did, a d serv d his two years with fidelity nd ability in our na tional Congr s, anui was again re nominated for re-elec.ion. This time the whigs put forward their best man, and as, before, Gen. It eckendrige was returned with an ingeased majority, and from that time hIs popularity be came national, for at the next Presi dential election he 'is placed on the democratic ticket for hezo second place, and was agaii elected, and all of us can remember with v hat dignity and distinction hb perfoimed. the fuuc .tions of so exhalted 4 position incum bent on him 1s President of the Sen ate of the 11nited States; At the unext eledtion he wjs placed on the ticket of the Statees Right party for the highest place. But alas! the dark clouds of revhlution obscored the star of his destiny, as likewise the fate of the So4th, whom he so gallantly served bath in the field and in the Cabinet, and they have gone down hand anal hand together, he to an untimely` grave, and the Solith to a degradction worse than death. !"All cold, the hand !hat soothed Wo's weary hepd!

The love and veneration for laws I enacted by Kellogg, now that he has Sbeen "recognized" and goes swinging '"around the circle," by the people at large, in poor, piti'ol Louisiana, we fear is sadly lacking. Kellogg must do something to "'stir us up"-some thing to give ns a kindly and wer-] ;shilping feeling for the Codes enact ed.

A member of the Cincinnati press, writing from Kentucky, represents Mr. Beck, M3. C., as expressing his opinion on the ditltereut Democratic candidates for the Presidency, a Il lows: "The way the tide has set in every thing seems to be directed toward one man. You have Allen and Thurmaan anl Pendleton up there in Ohio. and Hendricks in Indiana. Hlendricks ruined Pendleton's chances in 'u;d, so I that both are out of the question. Thurman has been distanced by Al .len because Allen canme in at the right 'ime .and rescued the Democratic party from complete annihilation. You will nominate him for Governor again this fall, of course, and if you elect him by a good maujority-say forty thousand-all hell itself couldn't defeat him for the Presidency. I can I ot say he is my choice for the place. II would rather have a younger man chosen, not because Governor Allen is not a hale, vigorous man, and per fectl3y competent to discharge the duties of the office of President, but because, if elected, he would be apt to gather around him a class of ad visers who are old like himself, but who are not content to let the dead past remain buried. lie would call in, I am afraid, the mean of reminis cences, and would have this or that wrong to bring up from their memo ries. That is not what we want. The Demnocratic party must look for ward, not backward. It must grasp the future time instead of recalling the past if it expects to have its lease of power, now just commenced, con tinned. Allen is an able mant, a man without stain, and in all respects, save this, a suitable one. And if he is elected Governor this fall by a good majority, he can't be beaten next year for President." "But how about Tilden 1" "Oh, he's out of the question. The Southttnd West will have the*unam ing of the candidate-you can't keep it from them if you want to-and no Eastern bond-holding candidate will stand any show whatever." The question of Railroads in Lou isiana is now assuming some definite shape. Heretofore large and extrava gant State aid has been offered and accepted by corporations, with no practical result save to swindle the people of the State out of millions in Bonds. We see now that New Or leans; its merchants, bankers and capitalists, agree to subscribe and pay $1,500,000 to complete the Mobile & Texas road, and also the road from New Orleans to'Shrevdport. When this is done, we look for a rail read and with it the usual pros perity attendant upon such improve ments. We are pleased to note the im provements going on upon the farms in our parish, which have, in fact, sprung up within the past twelve months. Plank fencing, substantial ly built, is rapidly superceeding the old Virginia rail; frame houses, neat and comfortable, with brick chimneys and glazed windows, meet the eye every where, and they are with white and green paint a pleasing contrast to the break down log cabin with stick and mud ehialoney. The laborer is more out of politics now than at any time since "freedom," as they say, andl the most sensible of them 1 will tell you that they "have had their eyes opened." Bad government Sand ruinons taxation can be demon strated to colored men as well as white, and when the "shoe begins to pioch" they are as ready and willing Sto kick as any. Crops, although Sbackward, are in flne condition, and our farmers generally hopeful,. We again appeal to our white citi zens throughout the parish to fail not Sin filling out and returning the blanks - to the Census taker appointed by SGov. ellogg. There is a deep laid Splot to swindle in this matter, whieh Sthe whites ean thwart by not being Sremiss in their duty. By making up a negro majority, which will be at I tempted, and nothing left untried to effect, the Kelloggites hope to pro duece an impression that they are re r ally in the majority in the State, thus I viodicating the crimes and outrages I of 1872 and 1875. SWhen you refuse to ill out the blanks handed youa you do just what the Radicals desire you to, and as the old adage goes, "bite your nose - to spite your face." [ Capt..Eads and Col.

S Leaving aside the fact, that "threats Sare idle" in agreat measure, we would beg to state to many of our people, that what they say, in an agry and un agarded moment, is often repeated t to persons who are not of no, by t those who, too eowardly and pusilan t imous themsaelves to meet a foe, are i ever temporizing; ever ready to see I quarrels and difficulties in tolhicl they - wil itake o part.

John C. Breckeuridge, of Ken tucky: "'Frol dispatches received Wed nesday night we learn that the last hours of tihat noble soldier and chiv alr'ous gentleman, Gen'l. Jolhn C. lBrcke'nridtge, are fast approahing. lie has been ill for some time past, and the real cause of his sucllr'ing has been a matter of much debate. Au importanlt surgical operation lately perfoirmed by I)r. Gross, of Philadll phia, and Dr. Sayre, of New York, served to convince these gentlemen a that the true secret of his sufferings is that it is the sequence of a blow I received from a fragment shell during the war. The fieeble condition of Gen. Breck- I inridge prevented the completion of º an operation which might have been i productive of the most satisfactory I results, and now the melancholy fact stares us in the face that the South era people will, in all probability, t very shortly lose another of the most I zealous patriots and warmest friends that ever lived within the borders of their sunny Southl;and. Indeed, it is more than probable that before our readers have perused this brief notice the soul of John C. Breckenridge may have taken its flight to the land be yond the grave. It is not alone the State of Kentuc ky that will mourn his death, for it was not alone for her he exercised his great talents as a soldier and orator. He doubtless dearly loved his native 1 State, but hig great loved encompass- 1 ed the entire Sonth, and for her ihe Slabored and tought, and it is from the entire South that a requiem should be chanted to his memnory, or let us hope a prayer of thankfulness be breathed i for his recovery. Dissipation brings its excuses as I well as regrets, and we often smile I at the sly dodges that' are every day practiced by.those who are its vota ries. "Dining with a friend" (hic) is a played. out tnorceat in. this quiet town, and a patent right is claimed by more than one,. for sprained an kles, slight fevers, sick headache, billious attacks, and ouionuiMydlear. Well, men will be men, 'whether whis ky is good or bad, and to drink it is a human weakness that all love, not "too wisely but too well." From present indications a monument of blue-mass and crutches the "cure all" of "fevers and sprained ankles,' to say nothing of the pedestal of on ions, sWill- soon be erected in memory of departed drunks, not with the hope, we trust, they will retuln again. Is it not remarkable what an effect the administration of a slight dose of pap' has upon the tone of such journals as "live by the fraud." We could name more than one .who were wont to give a "Kellogg's minions hell," so, to spak, in times gone by, who are a now as meek and lowly as lambs. a The truth i's, the3y have come to lie I with a small animalwith long earns that is clothed in a skin bearing I the semblance of a mane.

Of all the exchanges that comes to 1 us froii New Orleans, thf2uaie suits us best. For tone, sound judgment and reliabilitycoinmend us to its col urns.
