Myers has essayed an epistle in the "Organ" of this city, and tells us, at some length, what he knows about Railroads.

In order to settle, the vexed differ enes of opinion with regard to the Convention in New Orleans, in No teupber next, for the purpose of or tnanisng the Demoeeratic party, we :re requested to notify the eitizens of this parish that there will be a mass g~.aois f all the ".)aome n c and aflyM e sesau of the parish, he n .., rfall at A Question of Importance, When speaking of railroads and the attendant taxation, to pay in part for tlheir construction, the Natehito clhs Rela?, liran, grows suddenly vir tutons, and decants against this wan ton outlay of the "people's money," alnd begs most piteously, that they will not he asked to incrlease their "already bnrdensome taxation." Our reiaders will pardon our calling their nttention to tihe fact, that the '' 1umrdens,r" so feelingly complained of, are part and parcel of the remains of the legislation of such Police Ju ries, as the Re|publicanl party, in its wisdom (?), sa5w fit to afflict this ioor, pa:rish wtlh; such bodies as were proesided over by Blaekstone, the ale parlted, that "burdened" the taxpayer with debts at the rate (of :4,Pt), for p:laupers alone, for each month, or fifty-seven thousanid six hundred dol laIs per year; payirng twenty dollars per month to the indigent poor, to the number of 240, when hlonst rep resentative Juries fail to find sirfen ; besides, every swindling operation that could he started, met the ready consideration of those bodies, and the "usual" appropriation was voted to such as Immigration bureaus, Gralnd Ecore toll roads, Bridge contracts, &c., &c. Did tile Nat'hitoches ?Replblican put uip a virtuous "lip" when the tax payers in their might struggled under the eight per cent taxes ? When they met and forced off the incubus that was grinding them to the dust, did the 1 epubliaeun raise its voice in fivor of the people ? No! a thpusashd times, No ! We defy a perusal of its col umns to prove, what we say. While the very vitals of the people were being eat out by that "burdensome taxation," it stood by and openly de fended the TAXER ; not one word of sympathy for the TAXEI; not one word of protest against acts they knew to be criminal, but it spent its hours in talking "peace," and clhopping logic. We can assure the Republican anod its editor, whoever lie is, that the people of Natchitoches who pay taxes, have not yet forgotten the coarse of that Journal, and they "well know whom it represents. Besides, the smack of communisom that has been indulged in by the Organ ; its cry of down with the "aristocrat," and the miserable truckling to what it calls the "p-o-o-r m a-n," will hardly finad favor with the intelligent masses, however much it may serve the par pose for which it is undoubtedly in tended, of arraying the negro against the white man. Let this diabolical doctrine; a doe trine in direct antipathy to civiliza tion, and iu direct conflict with the spirit of time age; int once be fncul cated in the negro, and with his teach ings of hate already learned too well from tihe Republicans' cl:ss, we must bid farewell to peace and prosperity. Thie issue will then be unmistakable, and God protect the weaker. These utterances indulged in to an alarming extent by the Republican, are diaboli cal in thie extreme, and -require to be frowned down by every man ot hon eat intelligence., But we deg'ess. After declaring that the railroad tax question is not a political one, the Reputblican whines out that, it is gross injustice to "dis franchise a large portion of tl.e popu lation to determine the matter." It no doubt is-from thie stand-point of the Republican. Thie party which is represented here by that sheet, has been so much in tihe habit, for tihe past 8 years, of voting taxes upon other people's property, that it seems strange they should not be allowed to continue to do so. Thie "gross in juatice" has always been thie other way- nay, it has been the crirn of the Republican party. Tihe land owners expect, or have to pap this railroad tax, if voted, and the "great injustice" comes in when Tom, Dick or Harry, without a cent of property or a thought of interest in the material advancement of the country, comes up and,judges, by bal lot, for or against whait th!e consider to be a borden to them, and in conse quence, to the whole inumaunity. The voting population of the Re publican party in this 8tate, have not to this time evinced much regard for their "future welfare," as is prov en by the average olfce holder of this section, hence, no one looking to benefit the country, eares whether they vote or not, for when they do, their suffrages are generally given for some "whiner" against "aristo orats," as the Republieca terms, we asuppose, every man of average res pectabi)ity. The expression that this New Or. leans and Pacifice Railroad will bene fit no one, save the stockholders of the road, deserves the. severest comment, for the Journal that would attempt asuch a blundering aignment iB the face of facts to tihe contrary, must either take its readers for fools, or be itself demented. What has built up the great West, and made the States of Ohio, Indiana, hlliaole, Missouri, Iowa, Wisconsin, amnesolta, Kansas and others, the richest aind ibost powerful in the S Istas developed their Tg~rea aguicultmaral tb~b~~ - P·i~ cc.~s iilnp ort;'r'e, the great 1metopl,, lis' of the E:st ? lailroads ! Look at Texas, which, ten years ago, was in feri,,r to Louisiana in every respect, ;and is to-day, in lands and minerals, the rival of any State in the West; the home that is sought after by the ''p0OOr Inoan" and the ";lristocrat"~ the refige of the fleeing tmhosanlds of the South, from Radical rnle and Radical plunderers rwho do not iroat railroads. What made her ? Rail ºoads! And in the face of this, the Natchitoches Tel)ublican has the bra zen effrontry to tell us that railroads are for the benefit of stockholders alone. Bah! Ot nlupon such arguments. 1)Do not "tilk glibly," but answer the ar ticles ulpo "Railroad Benefits" which lappeared in these columnts. It were much better, if a desire to preserve something like knowledge or common sense is intended, to refute argument with argument, u,,t slur them over with a poor attempt to he cynical. Let th ie Repiblicain state its reasons for this opposition to the tax--which are plain-so plain that the blind ity read. The tax is not the thing t.lit they are opposed to, feat is only an evasioln; an artifice to conceal their true feeling. The Railroad itself is what they do not want. Wlite immiUrationt is in the dam distance, and death to radical rule and irresponsible party leaders, are the ghosts that haunt the waking dreams of every negro leader on lied river. Come out and express yourselves, don't attempt to hide your thrusts in such niiserahle 'trash as the leader of 25th Septemnber. The advent of "aristocrats"; men with cleani shirts, white faces and easy consciences, is what your average Radical fears, and he feels in his heart of hearts, that the whistle of the lo comotive dooms to eternal oblivion him and his party in Louisiana. Hence all this cry set up by their pap-fed organs, abont "burdens on the peo ple"-burlleus they themselves incur red without cossulting the taxpayer, who, whlen attempting to act for him self, is insultingly lectured on politi cal economy by Radical papers. An apt illustration of "Satan quoting scripture." Our opinion is, that the Repubhlica's articles in opposition to the proposed Railroad, will have about as much force, as Myers' in favor of it. They will both pass by the oter on that question, like the idle wind, which they heed not, and which they are. s...oft It is with dbep regret that we an nounce the death of that good, ven erable man, that pure and upright christian minister, the Right Rev erend Bishop A. I. MAnTix, of the diocese of Natchllitoches. This sad event took place at his residlence in this city, upon Nednes day last, 29th ulnt., at 9 o'clock A. 3i., after a brief illness of three days. Upon Sunday last hie officiated at the ordination of a young priest and received the congratulations of the faithful as well as all who knew him, for none knew Ibut to respect, upon the Fiftiethl anlniversary of his own ordination to the priesthood, which event occnred upon the 26th. Thus are the good called hence, to receive that re'yard prepared for those who love and serve the Lord, from the foundation of the world. rlequiesent in pace.

Willis Holmes, on Front Street. His purchases have shown great taste and good judgment, both in the selection of goods to siit the faney of purchasers' in this market, 'and in pricec, he can suit the means of any and every buyer.

Subsceribe to the Vindicator, What has the Republican Party Done for Louisiana. The self-complacency, cheek, in vulgar parlauce, with which the Radi eal party of this State assumes to be the party3' for the poor man, andi the ;arrogance they assume in qtuoting thie great benefits that have accrued to the State by reason of "Republican ideas anti Republican principles," would be amusing, were it not that it is somlthing like "laughing at a fiuneral." Logically speaking, Satan conld no doult set up a line of argument, whic.h to himself, at least, would ease his conscience for the many sins lie has committed, and when we draw this parallel we -do not mean to in suit his Satanic Majesty, for we think the comparison between him and the Radical party of to-day certainly calls for this apology to him. But to the question-how can they have the brazen effiotry to proclhsim good deeds, when their whole record is one mass of corruption ; of evil legi.Aiatiou. Can they claim to have governed the people for the people's good? The answer is given in ounr ruined Commerce; our great State, parochial and municipal debts; of criminals unpunished, and when pun ished, pardoned by the great (P) Kel logg; why should these pett3 pilfer ers, these small murders, be amena ble to the law, when they, the rulers, had plundered a people and butcher ed a State. In the whole dreary waste of Radical legislation, there is not one g'een spot to which we can refer, or they either, as having for its object the benefit of State or peo ple. Amd why f Because the parties who led and composed the radical or ganization were incapable of the feeling of honesty of purpose, or as a mass, too ignorant to understand the qualities that go to make up a pure statesman. Louisiana has been plundered by these miscreants, inside and out. No scheme could be devised too outra geous ; no act too palpably thieving, that did not at once command their attention and favors. With leaders alive to oar people in both, feelings and principle; with a mass of igno rant, brutal negroes, just relieved from bondage, filed with hatred to those among whom they were born and resrtd, these Radical poured down up on us, committing more ravages than the Goths and Vandals, and have left Louisimia the wreck of her former self. With all these outrageous laws passed and inforced by them for the past seven years, still disgracing our Statute books, they have so little self respect left as to ask at tile hands of tihe people-a people they have in suited, robbed and outraged a con. tinuance of power, under the specious promise of "doing better next time ;" of ridding their party of its "bad elements." The guise is entirely too thin--the promise lhas teen uade too often. Nothing but itsutter distruction will appease all thie true sons of Louisi ana. No flaming protestations; no death bed repeatance, will save them from defeat. ?urify tie Radical par ty of Louisiana to-dog, of all its bad eknment, aml !yos leave not the rttage of a wreck behirAl. There is not, nor has there ever been, any good ele ment in it. It was organised as a party of plnnudr, and such it is to day-distroy thoe cohesion of "swag" and down goes the party-in fact the Radical party lias done for Louisiana what the robber did for the bank; what the radical bank men all over the North are to day doing-it has plundered us of sastenance-piled a debt on our people-murdered, in suaited and tyrasised over our intelli gence and manhood, and it stands to day convicted by its own friends North, as the most consumate organi zation of villainy and ignorance, that ever disgraced a State. ·Nam ego ilnium prise daco, ei gqui dem periit pudlor. --': :---- The Chicago lIter-Oean forgets one thing and that is, that peace and conciliation between Northern and Southern people and soldiers is one thing, but love for radical thieves by Louisianians is another. We commend all this good feel. ing now being cultivated between the two sections, but our peoplek, as we have often said before, have no thought of including Kellogg, Packard and that elass, in the general jubilee. Okiant Parish, to which we al "uded last week, contains many friends of ours and we know its people to be thrifty and honorable as a mass. Let no man entiee them to commit the folly of di. viding the white vote. Such an act would be a crime against the whole 8thte and would certainly bring down the judgment of all good people upon them. Best as sured that it isa trick of the en emy, good friends of Grant; but stand together as you have done' like patriots, apd Louisiana will have cause to be proud of yeou. Willis Holmes, Front Street. Now is the time to subscribe to I the Vindicator. Let the Radicals Show their Game. The folly of wise men is exemplili ed in tho persistent attempt of a fa vored few in New Orleans and else where, to spring the people into a mlovement they hoipe to control ; to force them to a declaration of princi ples which it is expected will bind the party to such a line of policy as may satisfy the personal ambition, and gain the private ends of sonime as piring gentlemen, without regard to the public good. Louisiana has been sorely afflicted with radicals; but, the annoyance which we suffer, from some would-be leaders, is begiuing to be unbearable, so much so, as to al most call for some action to stop them. We desire to treat with respect the opinions of all our friends, and to be personally polite to thenm; but, this thing of a November Convention of the Democracy has got to be mnonoto nous with us, and we beg that a quie tus may be put to it. The radicals and negroes in New Orleans, are showing their hands plain enough, let them have full stwing; their acts are in ridiculous keeping with their declarations, and a few more such moves will effectually kill off the party which proposes to combat us next year. Even this move of Pinchlback's, et sic de simili btus, may be construed into an overt act to bring us from cover, a beating the bush to frighten out the game. How on earth our people can be de ceived by these men, (and we know that the masses are not) any longer, passes our comprehension. Time and time, have these shallow games been played; we say shallow, be. cause they are all seen through in their incipiency, but, it seems to our mind that some leaders are as easily to be gulled now, as in the first in. stance. We fear that there is some "bonanui" behind all this; that the "pelf-offering," seducing, good judg ment and patriotism has been, and is, enough to propitiate past offences; to ease political conscience and make those who would be patriots, traitors sub roes. In all those parishes where the ne gro is largely in the majority, the game to be played by the radicals next year is apparent. Doubts ex ist as to the line of "troop suppling" by the President, as last year, being made practicable again, at least no chances will be taken on that score, as it would be doubtil utility in the face of a Democratic House of Repro sentatives, waless by threats, insults, mobs and demonstrations, sprinkled with the usual amount of false ru more and barefaced lies, some act may be forcedl from the whites, simply iu self defence, to bring about the "third term" eiigency, when we ad mit that the election will be carried, like a fortification, at the point of the ibayonet. The desires of tihe Radicals, in which they should be no way gratified, is something like tihe Indian in war fare; his enenmy has a strong, impreg nable position, and defeat awaits them if assault is attempted, to draw out is the policy, and by jibes and taunts, wh o ops and yells; brandishling swords and beating tom-toms, they expect to gain their end. Our position is one, or should be, of masterly inactivity ; keeping watch and ward over every part of our lines; holding the party well in hind; not going out in vain sallies, hike this at tempted, or to be attempted in New Orleans. Such is supreme folly. Louisiana and her safety apd sal vation is the first consideration; we have no business, no matter how much tihe inclination, dropping our State issues to take up Allen's, or Tilton's, or Hendrick's, or in fact, any one of them, even the National Demtocracy. After we have made our State stand, then we can march up andt assist that great party wffom, we presume, are not opposed to ac cepting assistanee, no matter from what quarter it may come. We repeat, let vs remain quiet within our works, let the enemy show their forces, develop their purposes, and when allis ready we trust to be able to congratulate our citizens upon an overwhelminog and lasting victory. m----. ~ m ....

That Convontion. We :are in reecipt of a cilenlllr a:l dress from lion. R. II. Mlarr, of New Orleaus, favoring this mulch talked of political enterprise. As usual with thal.t gentleman, the resonllnig is sotuntidl and logical, :and tihe clauses i '!hy we lshould thusn meet and reason togetlh er are ably and clearly set fotith. But we are of the opinion that Mr. Mtarr umista:kes the feelings and purljposes of the New Orleans ioliticians, and those of neighboring pari~shes, i sppomsing that the work of this proposed con vention will stop short with the pur poses indicated by him. There is one thing concealed in this call that we connot overlook, and it is the "putting in line with tlhe Northern l)enmcracy" -understand us to say that we are Democrats and have no objections to such a move at the proper time. Now, there does not certainly exist an oc casion for any snclh display of fealty -our sentiments, as a people, are well known to our Northern friends, and a demonstration of them, uncalled for, would be an act of rediculous egotism. If it could be certainly understood that the acts of the convention would be confined simply to local issues matters pertaining to our home gov ernment ; the naming the party ; (a childish thing for men of intelligence to qubrrel over) insisting upon the recognition of the McEnery governu ment ; inaugurating further peaceable resistance to Kellogg and his infamy; denouncing the use of Federal troops in State matters; protesting against aid demanding the repeal of all bad laws; and discussing such other local issues as may arrise, then we would have (nor could we have) bo objections to the proposed assembly that would not be factions. But that line, alas! cannot be fol lowed. We know too well the "bull headedness" of many truly good men in our State; men' blessed with all that nature and cultivation could sup ply, but cursed also with the bourbon fatality "appremire ries et oablier rica." We venture to say, that, the con vention would not be in session ten minutes before some man of "weight" would propose some resolution on currency or tarriff; questions as foreign to the salvation of Louisiana as the antipodes, over which the "wise" Democrats of the North are going foolishly, ridiculously crag. The right of the people to govern themselves; the liberties of the cit izen; the constitution of the govern ment of ours forefathers is at stake, but we find men-men of intelligence higgling over names and crying them selves blind with currency issues, tar riff questions, and the seenming patriot ismt of "putting themselves in line." There seemes to us a blind fatality pur suing the American people, and we are sorry to see that they create many of the evils under which they labor, by blind zeal to departed issues and dreamy Ihopes for impossible theories. Louisiana, notwitlhstanding she has been tried in thie crucible, has not es caped the afflicetion, and we must fear that the unmeaning zeal of a few would-be patriots, will yet lead to our defeat. For God's sake my couna trymen, have done with this unwise, fatal imbicility. Let us not attempt to create division lb ous ranks now. The great majority of the State has pronounced agaiast this convention have done with it then, and let time and the acts of the radical party de velop what line of policy it were best to pursue to insure victory.
