On Thursday next, September 14th, will assemnble in this city, the parish Couvention of the Democratic-Con servative party. The duties of this Convention are of great importance to the whole peo ple, and we may say that the suncess of good, honest loeal government de peods upon its action. It is well to i'lly understand tlu' situation before we enter into the battle-it is wise we should know the ground before we advance, and we propose therefore, to be plain and em phatic in our views and statements, regarding what we consider the duty' the delegates owe the people and the party. Natchitoches parish, in the first place, ca s be carried for the Demo cratic party ! how? The record of the Radical party, and the effect of its rule with us, is against it; the leading Radicals are, without an exception, men of worth less character-the whir are rene gade Democrats, indicte thieves and known pluhnderers. The colored peo ple know this well, and have either joined our party, or held off to see what we propose to do to better their condition and ours. That is the situation-now comes the remedy, and the Howl In your parish platform make the issue sharp and distinct between ourselves and the Radicals. State what you propose to do in no ambiguous terms or well turned phrases-let it be said in good old Saxon, which all can understand. Now this is not all. You must nominate men for local office who are COMPETENT, HONEST and AVAILABLE. None other can hope to win, and with one man on the ticket who does not comprehend and embrace all three of those requirements, our de feat is certain-a defeat lasting and vital. Delegates, you have in your keep ing a fearful responsibility. Upon you rests the liberty, the honor and the property of your fellow-citizens. We hope you realize your c,ndi tion and your responsibility. With a wise selection of men for official position, yon insure good gov vwn'.m.&, colmrient onlsclas, honest administration of law, and the asnsu rance of peace to all-you bring by your action, health and vigor to a drooping and tottering people. With an unwise selection, what are the eonsequences? We leave that to your imagination to picture, for pen or tongue is powerless to write or express the condition to which we will be re duced. Let %s then act patriotically this time, when every tlhing we have is at stake, and we are held to such fearful responsibility. Come to the Convention forgetting every thing but the honor and sue cess of your party and people-de termined to do nothing that will re fleet Upon the one or endanger the othler. You lose money by not goinog at oncee to MeCOOK & BRO'SQ., for cheap Boots, Shoes, HIats, and Cape. We now must insist that tlhose who owe.a. uwill come forward and settle up. Many of our people were unable during the year to pay fir the paper, which they were bound to ihave. We have, by contracting debt, done ont part of the bargain in carrying the VINsDCATOr into the honsehold of every perso who dQsired il I our. parish-all at oar own expense. (ot ton and produce are now being har rested and brought to market, let every one who owes us a cent come 'forward and pa up. Do this with ot fail the l at thing. We have supported youa and now comes your fatra to support us.

Dnring that period we, as a people, took charge of public affairs; made and published ourselves responsible t' for the protection of life and proper e ty; how well we kept that pledge can be judged from the fact, that not a single lawless act occurred during that memorable winter. The causes that then required us to "take charge" of the government i of our local affairs; to preserve law and order, exist now to a ten fold' greater degree. Our success depends (and success with as is rehabilitation, defeat death) upon the impossibility of the Radical emissaries in our midst being fur nished a pretext to manqfacture out rage from-to construct the "bloody shirt," to flaunt in the face of the American people, and to "fire the Northern heart." We should then he prepared to pre serve thq peace, to be cool and dletr mined, to accept every species of outrage without resorting to violence, consistent with personal safety and tihe protection of our homes and families. We must all be willing and anxious r to defend those colored people from violence, who go with us in this work of redemption-all we hold dear is at stake ln this contest-life, liberty, Sand property ; let us, in God's name, not submit their loss to the folly of I "an outrage." "There is a time coming" when popular vengeance will overtake those who now but blaster and bully in the I attempt to force you to a suicidal ae tion.

We desire to enter a few figures in I this contest and we hope our people will look closely and see what rad icalism has cost them directly in hard dollars in nine years: Total amount of parish' taxes paid since 1867....... 32.....33,93 06 Decline in the assessed val nation of property since'67 4,013,00000 I Amount of "ndebtedness due the Prish as per report of Coummittee in 1874 ....... 126,0000 Total........ 294,4 2.06 O Four million four hnadred and sixty two thousand two khundred ind tinety three dollars and six cents is what rad icalism has cost Natchitoches Parish alone since 1867. There as in this parish a total pop. ulation of about 18,000. This would he at a cost of two hundred qndfort4j; seven dollars and nineity cents each, that radicalism has been sustained here in the way we name. Tl'iere are about 3000 colored and white voters in the parish-they have each paid one thou sand two hLdlred and thirty nine dold. lars and fifty cents to suestain this monster radicraism; or one handred and thirty seven dollare ild erventy two cents per year each. Think of these figures ye overburdened, an[ ask fthe rulicale to dare deny them. This does not include your Stiate tax payntents nor your lose inhebsiness &c., &e., but what is brought direct ly home in direct loss.

As they appraehi ed the man he began to mount his horse which was standing at the edge ° of the road : Dobson went directly to e the road, Dinkgrave leading his horse i outside the road and about thirty " yards distant. Dobson states that when hlie was about fifteen feet from the man lie threw down a shot gun and ordered him to stop there (the man was an entire stranger to Dob. son and to Dinkgrave), and throwing his gan, a large doible barrel shot gun to the right, having halted Dohsoi on the left, he pulled trigger and Dink grave, who was trying to place ilis I horse between himself and the man received the contents of the gun in ei the left side, just a4bove the hips, fall lug at once. The man rode in a slow walk about forty steps and saw that )Dinkgrave was mortally wounded and hearing Dobson say lie is shot through and through, spurred his horse into a rapid gait saying, "I am gone," lie rode furiously up tie road reloading as he ran. Dobson describes him as a man of dark complexion, rather spare made and very cool and rean f lute with a deep voice and no dis guise, except long shaggy black whis. kers, reaching nearly to his eyes. He knew neither the man nor the horse. Several persons have seen the man during the past three days and be was t furnished with water several times by l Dinkgrave's cook. Dinkgrave told Dobson the man had been lying around his house for two or three days and thought he meant to kill him. Some six years ago Dr. Diukgrave rwas compelled, in self.defense, to kill a man named Wimberly, who had many friends, and the impression is that his death is the result of an old feud. Prominent Republicans say this is their supposition. The tragedy has created much feel ing, but it is clearly disconnected with politics. The sheriff with a posse of armed white men have gone in pur suit, but with no expectations of cap tare as the man had two hours the start. The murderer was dstessed in a semi-genteel suit of brown color, wore ' a black slouch hat and was of medium `height. He did not conceal himself and was laying down at the time Dinkgrave turned back. Neither Dob. son, Dinkgrave nor Beuoit, who cor roborates Dobson's statement, recog nized the man. Dinkgrave had im mediate snrgical assistance, but his wounds were mortal and he died within an hour. These particulars come from witnesses themlselves. Boss Packard Resigns his Mar shalship. New Orleans, Aug. 31, 1876.

O. iyate.i We have grown so accustomed to u the inspiring threats or rreseuce of e United States soldiers as a factor in our elections, that we will be tolera Iºbly atble to support them the coning t fall. howsoever much they may ont o rage the popnlar sense of constito 1 tional right. Setting aside thile shal liw pretense of Plesident Grant in attempting to juslif. hrs order to Secretary Came'ron on the Lord rnso Intion, which merely declared the, Spropriety of punishing throught the court, ofthiseCs comnnitt.d against tle exercise of popular suffrage, and did not contemplate the alticipation of a those ofenses by providing for mili i tary galrisons within the suspected States, let us only face the bare fact that the "soldiers are comning" and resolve in our minds the most becom Jing manner of re'ceiving them. The order is before the country, (and let I us remark parentlhetically that the country, which does not emlhrace such subsidized organs, as the Chicago In i ter-Ocean, has formed a very emnpatic opinion of that order) and the troops will be down on us after a little time. The desired pretext which Gen. Grant yearns for will not be long forthcoming. We have four or five goivernors de facto and governors pros pective in the South, and it will not take any extraordinary exertion of their political intellects to manufac ture the coveted excuse. Let us then understand that they ame coming and fortify ourselves accordingly for the advent. Of course, the intention is, on the arrival of the troops, to excite local turmoil and thus afford a quasi occa sion for the interposition of the Fed eral arm. There will probably he some arrests of prominent citizens in the country immediately preceding the election. In addition to the gas tomnary supply of deputy marshals every apervisor of registration will be a deputy marshal, with power to I call in the troops when he, "in his judgment," shall deem uecessary. Wholesale arrests at the polls are therefore not improbable. and it would hot be at all inconsistent with the past reerlrd of the Administration party to incite riots whese troops are imost convenient, and there and then proceed to arrest. All these things and many others mar be anticipated, and the Conser vative party must prepare the counter tactcls. In successfully resisting the artful designs of the opposition much will depend upon each individ ual. Our people must etelse a wise forbearance even tinder goading pro vocation. The stake to he played fotr will be worthy of a great sacrifice of personal feeling. Let It be remem bIred that the struggle will be of short duration, and the exercise of an ohvious prudence will be crowned with unqutestionable triumph. Come and see what bargains at McCOOK & RRO'S.
