The Spirit of Natchitoches,
New Orleans has its liars and its
thieves, and the New Orleans Rejpubli
Seenr is the champion of both. We
have more than once said that we
have no "era of good feeling" for the
Ji. cpublican and its friends; it has
been no fatult withl that journal and
its kindred, that there has been such
things ais Bunkcer Hill Centennials,'
and had it not been for the plunder
ing of the people of New Orleans by
~ the Rcepublican's followers or leaders,
' the matter of building rail roads
n' would not amount to simple trials.
Mr. Kelly and Vice-President Wil.
son, had their lessons of "blood paint
p ing" at the South, from just such
t sheets as the New Orleans Republican,
f which it very unwisely admits, that
these gentlemen found "not so bad
as painted." The "Artist" in this
case has cause for self congratulation,
if he can find it, in the utterances of
Morton, Kelly and Wilson; it is no
fight of ours, and only goes to prove
that these leading "bloody shirt"
demagogues have found out what we
knew all the time ; that the republi
can journals of the South and the
leading radical politicians had lied all
along, had painted the Southern gen
tleman as a "white league cut-throat,"
which upon close exalinatii n L ""
an,1 uinr-:ý, s.uJnu too igtgly colored.
Thin Republican speaks as if it were
something magnanimous and forgiv
ing on the part of republican leaders
North, to admit the Southern people
to their cen|tennials, their shows of I
patriotism; for our part, we do not
see it in that light, and we must he
taken for the veriest idiots, if it is
thought that we swallow such "soft
saiwder." The aims of Wilson, Kelly 1
and Morton, in their late admissions
that "Southere gentlemen were not,
as bad as painted" are too apparent I
to deceive, but it come too late, the
"Orange blossom decks the brow of
a fairer and nobler bride"-the South
has achieved her own proud position i
in the Union, aided by the Democrats '
of the Norlh, and in spite of kn-klux
laws, force bills and all the powerful t
machinery of a party of hate, aided c
and abetted by radical journals South,
prominent among which is the New t
Orleans Republican, who filled the t
Northern ear with tales of blood and I
assassination. I
The followers and lovers of the I
New Orleans Republican in our midst,
are enough to satisfy us of what it
is, and we have read its columns suf
ficiently to know what it advocates
and the "meat upon which this Caesar
feeds." Does the Republican forget
that not longer than last year a band
of its plunderers had to be shaken
of from this parish ? Has it forgot- I
ten that its friends are the men who I
"where the money went;" that 8per
cent taxes were levied by its "loving" I
republicans in one year j that a Dis
trict Judge to whom we must apply
to suppress crime, stole over $25,000
froli )he public school fund, and is
now in New Orleans the political ad
riser for this section, no doubt? I
There are crimes that the civil law I
does not reach; that the people most
take in hand themselves and correct,
this radical plunadering is one of them;
Kelly and Wilson will neither escape
the condqmnation of the people,id and
the New Orleans Republican and its C
followers in Louisiana, in a few years
will only be remembered as a dream,
hideous, it is true; though not for- *
given, forgotten.
Let the New Orleans Republiean.
choose to defend the political acts of
its party in this parish, and we are
ready to meet them; we do not
think, however, it has the temerity to
lo so, but will content itself with
long-winded abuse at a safe distance.
Thie colored men who will be taken -
in by the resolve of the 4th July
meeting of the negro Blont, which p
occurred on 26th June, are few and t
far between; the peace between the t
colored man and the white man of c
Natchitoches parish b has never yet a
been disturbed, and the only people a
that the white citizens have objected C
to, are those white and black thier- I'
ing politieians. If they think, how- m
ever, that we are to submit quietly I
to such role as they choose to give
os, at the cost of their leaving the j
country; if the peace they desire or I
intimate to desire, and the cultiva
tion of our lands Is to be bought at
the price of our rights and liberties;
that we must take jost such men as
they elect to rule, without regard to
qualifications for honesty or capacity,
then we all say, as many negrees at
the grand gathering maid, "go now?"
There are mhany Southern States, r
twelve offfteen, that are entirely oin
the hands of the white men and have '
been for some time, sad we fail to I
find that oab Jot or tittle of theim rights
of thenaegroes have been taken from
them, or been disturbed. The f.et is,
that these leading nagro politicians are
the worse class of persons to give ad
vise to tbeir fellow-men, they all insist I
apon; ruling, which means ruin, as i
bus been demonstrated in more 8tates
thu one; wihes they fall to rule, a

The Relief Association.
No association among the umany in
the city of New Orleans can go be
' fore the community with better grace
e or a more perfect title to recognition
i than the one which now appeals to
the public for assistance in its noble
work. The good it has quietly done
Ii since its inauguration, the succor it
s, has extended to hundreds upon hun
dreds, who were helpless and desert
ed but for them, the intelligence,
economy and unestentations charity
3, displayed in its management; these
Is constitute a claim on the liberality of
, the public which it would be imper
tinent to ignore and impossible to
deny. We give herewith the text of
the association's call for assistance.
h If anything could equal the lidelity
antid success with which these gentle
men havelabored in their benevolent
eniterprise, it is the modesty with
i which they state their case and the
simple pathos with which they appeal
to the sympathies of their fellow
f citizens:
It is due to the donners to know
something of our movement and of
our object.
We propose to find employment for
the unemployed--to extend relief to
the sick, to the destitute and the help
We have fonnd employment to
about thirteen hundred persons-to
many permanent homes-some of
whom were on the yJ r. I re
,0n reli(ef to about 375 families
whom we found in great distress,
amongst whom were those who never
had felt this burden before, and who
suffered in silence through long and
weary days and nights ere they would
gather courage sufficient to tell their
tale of woe, and then the wearied
father or emaciated mother came not
for themselves, bat for bread for their
starving children. Would either of
your members go with us to these
abodes of suffering, their report would
have more effect than anything we
could say. We only add, relief in
money or provisions is always pre
ceded by personal visits or reliable
reports from those well acquainted
with the needs and distress of the
recipients, and then dispensations are
made most frugally.
We plead for those who cannot
well come to you-for those of our
citizens who by toil and labor have
helped to make success for the fortu
nate; they are parthf us, we ask you
to aid us in the full and proper dis
charge of our duty.
We know misfortune has never
plead in vain our city. We know
that incessant calls are made upon
the bounty of our citizens, and yet we
feel that our own request will not be
unheaded. For it is written-"the
poor you have always with you."
The rooms of the association are

We call attention to the above
appeal, and ask the especial con
sideration of our friends thereto.

part of them have not, it is true,
given satisfaction, but we are sat
isfied that good servants can be
procured by application to the
ReliefAssociafion, and we would
suggest that those in need give
it a trial.
We do not exactly understand what
the Conshatts Citiens means in its
article in relation to this paper, when
it talks of "fingers of scorn,n "Doemo
cratic party," adjustment" and the
"4th Georgia hirt its own." Possibly,
in our ignoranee may lie the fact of our
not being able to comprehbend the
"hash," for it certainly treats of more
sulbjects under one head than any ar
ticle we have pernsed mn some timle.
Now we are not a bit mad at the
Citizen, and if, by a poke of ours, we
have made that animal growl, our ob
ject has been obtained, but we must
beg to be excused from further pokes,
if asih a chrais of yells and rears is
to be the consequence,
What in God's name has the com
promise to do with the democracy, or
the Georgian "that hilt his ground"

article dear Citisem, at once "fills" yonr
motto to overflowaing, for if any man
can Gtd where you stand in a single
line of it, lie must be as wise as Solo

heaven's sake do not

Upon Saturday last, a little girl,
the daughter of G. Rhen, a German
shoemakeri aged about 14 years, was
caught in thie act of attempting to
abstract money from the till in the
store of Messrs. MeCook & Bros.,
Washington Street. She had entered

counter pulled at the money drawer,
it being ose of the patent alarm tills,
the alarm struck, and Mr. J. J, Me
Cook caught her in a moment. He
allowed her to go home when she re
turned with her father, he In a high
state of rage; at the conduct, not of
his danughter, but.of Mr. MecCook, for
attempting to accase her of any neul
conduct, offered to prove that his
daughter had never left the house,
whlere hlie (Rhen) resides, during the
day-thise the girl stoutly eorrobora
ted. More than a dozen persons saw
the attempted theft, and the girl,
when released, ran down Front and
St. Denis gtreets to her home, and
more than tuestg peomu saw her pasu.
The attemps to prove-an alibi was too
palpable, and led to Investigation,
when, lo I and behold, it was discov

since of the $160 mentioned, and for
which a negro hat been imprisonaed.
Rhen had used the money, and it has
been since traced up to him. We
learn that lie (Rhen) severely chastised
the girl for being caught by McCook,
and attempted to resist the deputy
Sheriff when arrested; drawing a
loaded double barrel gun on deputy
