To what do you attribute this in very sudden change in the feelings wI and relations between the races ? th A. I just think that the White wi League were playing a political trick M to get control, ansd if they failed one IH way they would get it another. They be said that openly. TI Q. Was that on account of any al- th leged grievances they had ou account cc of any mismanagement of affairs t d! A. They alleged it so; but they V could not allege that; it did not come fo from the Republicans. P. Q. When did the Republicans first H get control of the parish I In 1868. th Q. How long did they retain con- to trol t Ie A. Up to 1872, in December, 1872, te all the officers claimed to have been at elected by the McEnery or Walsh If Board and went and took the offices. I The Sheriff is a Democrat, the Re- pl corder is a Democrat; and there was SI a majority of Democrats in office in th 1873 and in 1874; there were three th Democrats put off the Board. th Q.

I could not give it to you now. tr Q. Do you know the amount of the th indebtedness of the parish before '68 ? sip ' A. I think is was about twenty-tire m thousand and some hundred dollars. bJ f Q. What is the highest rate of tax- W' ation before 1868 ? cs A. I could not give that. I never w did trouble myself about the parish cc debt. If I was summoned as a wit- us t noe, I never even asked for my scrip. cd Q. You cannot give these figures do then ? t A. Icould not. hi Q. How many pounds 4o you put in in a bale of cotton ? hi 1 A. As a general thing they put five eh hundred or five hundred and fifty tl 1 pounds in a bale ; and some as low as lib four hundred and four hundred and o0 e fifty. di Q. They average about tivehundred he - poundst A. Yes, I guess so. t Q What is the worth of a pound in that parish t e A. At this time, I think, about fif teen or sixteen cents. I have known i it down as low as twelve and a half cents. SQ. Now, if the colored people ware o usually laboring there on shares al hi it is the general practice to swindle It them out of the result of their labor, di how do you account for the fact that the colored people are getting along a* better than the white people ? w t A. There are colored people who have been able to rent places; they i hiteo rented lands and have taken others witl them and have made good crops. They got what they did in IBhat way and have accumulated t means in that way. A ood many of Sthem have homes of their own, Q. How did they first accumulate 0 means to acquire those homes ? A. In various ways'; some were Ssmarter than others and started cou ight lafter the sarrender and as they , gote on they lifted others by hiring them and pying them for what they worked. SQ. Are not the tsy-playgs, black o and white, complaining of High tar nation? •, A. The people as a people cosu plain against taxation.. ,o q.

(Paris Letter to the N. O. Times.] A very singular exhibition was giv en yesterday at the Jardin Mabille. thi There has been performing hero at its the Folies JBergeres a man named Holtum, an American, who has a can- br non fired at him and catches the ball br in his hands. This prodigious feat fal was witnessed nightly, and, a although wi theactols present avowed that there an was no trick, Pierre Veron, of the an Monde Illustre, would not believe it. an He said that the canuon-ball must ap be thrown to !iultum from tihe stage. di The latter miade a bet of 5,000 francs (hi that he would perform the feat under as, conditions which left no room to gel doubt, and, when the bet was taken, col Veron designated Mahille as the place cal for the trial. All the journalists of thi Paris were invited, and they found ac Holtunt there before his cannon. It TI was examined with minute care, and Co the heavy ball was passed from hand if to hand. "I am no longer in my own en house," said Holtum; "you are Imas- we ter here, and you must watch over ho all the arrageiments." Having cave thi I fully aimed and lashed his ca:uon, it nit was charged, and Ilolttun took his an place against a plank'target some ten yards away. This was to show that tel t the ball was solid, and the force of pil the puowder great nuough to send it til through the plank. Holtuim got the tlhe i aim of his gun, and then placed his de head in a certain position against the acs plank, giving the command to fire. tll The ball just grazed the hair and to broke the plank, rolling sonie twenty Ilh a yards further on. The same ball io was picked up by the journalists, who pe f again charged the cannon and sent home the ball, and this time Holtuin ac r caught the ball in his hands as neatly rai as he does nightly upon the stage. ed r He won his bet, and no one seemed disposed to accept his offr of 3,000 fri trance to any one who would perform co the same astonishing feat. The phy-. fii º sical force required. must be enor- dii ,mons, but foltum showed his strength ne by tossing up cannon-balls as if they rit were so many oranges. The only pre- in, cautions taken are very simple; he po r wears very thick, leather gloves, and pi covers his breast with many thick- wi nesses of thin paper to form a sort of be ceirasse. This looks to nme like a very w! dangerous teat, and particularly the fei first part of it, where Holtum places his head against the target half aul th inch below where the ball will proba- of bly strike. If the powder should in Schance to be defective, some day be 1 there might be an accident. It is Al a like the foolhardy trick of putting of I one's head into a lion's mouth. One at day I fancy that ball will snap his all I head very nearly off. w A RunRAL CKITIC-WHAT r II E THOUGrT Or MME.

Harris, one of the best sit thorities, thus discourses upon tfhis important subject: What do we mean by an improved breed 6f pigs ? Usually we mean :. breed that has fine bone and little of fal. A breed that is very quiet aunt will turn the food it eats into flesh and fat. It is a breed that will eat and digest a stomach full of rich foodt and assimilate it. As a rule the weak spot in all high bred pigs is thait their digestive powers are not as good as their assimilating powers. They can assimilate more food than they di gest. On the other hand, our con common, course, unimproved hogs can usually oat and digest more food than they can assimilate. They are accustomed to forage for themselves. They have plenty of exercise and comparatively little food. Now then. if you take such a breed of hogs and endeavor to push them rapidly for ward with rich food, it is easy to see how their blood could be poisoned by the excess of material whichi the ani mual is not able to convert into flesh antd fat. My remedy would he to raise a bet ter class of pigs. I would raise such pigs as would stand high feeding un til they were fat enough to sell and then I would dispose of then without delay. If you take pigs that are not accustomed to mature before they are three' or four years old and endeavor to so feed and force thlem that they shall be ready for market at twelve months old or less, what can you ex pect but hog cholera. On the other bhad, a bleed that is accustomed, and has been for gene rations to mature early, can be push ed forward rapidly without injury. I should expect the best success fromn pigs raised from a large, healthy, t common sow, sired by a highly re fined thoroughbred boar, as a breed distinguished for its gentlenem, fine ness of buone, little offal, early matu rity, and fattening qualities.: The .mother would furnish the digestive powers and the sire the assimilating powers. These qualities eombined with an early maturity, flaueesa of F bone, and high qualities of meat, woul4 give you precisely what a good feeder wants. A simple method of determining the quantity of cream in any seantle of milk consists in agitating the milk in a graduated glass tube with its bulk of either for four or five minutes. Add alcohol in volume equal to that of the milk, and shake for five min utes. Place the tube vertically and ' allow it to rest for a brief period, when the oily matter will rise to the surfaee so that its amoant may be read off on the scale and'the percenat age easily computed.
