The Republican says that the Mayor is a Democrat and is responsible. be According to this admission the Ma ex- yor, who ever he may be, is respon sible-the Republican plainly and un quivocally admits that fact. The Mayor of this town is P. A. Simmons -such he said he was in his own tes t. timony bofote the Congressional Committee at this place. P. A. Sim mons is a republican, belongs to that sweet party of which the New Orleans Republican is the mouth piece, con sequertly Simmons, the Mayor and a republican, is responsible for this last outrage according to the reasoning of the Republican. We fastened this thing where it belonged the moment it was committed. It is no use, there fore, for the Republican to talk about _ Mr. Dranguet being the Mayor-it is ends not so. True Mr. Dranguet was stly equally true that Wells and his Re The turning Board have not to this mo the ment acted upon the case and con this sequently Simmons holds over under the law. We have been abused for a long mall time by this sheet in New Orleans, that how many times we know not, for it has adcopted the plan that to ex change with journals that represent has people it lies about and slanders would give them an opportunity to tier disprove and it does not therefore ex re- change with them. however, this last lie we take as a good specimen, the and its editor, whoever that may be, is what e say. 'ill None but Reformers can Reform. ng We find no diversity of opinion as to our dluty to the present order of e, things.

The condition of those officials who the were elected upon the Radical ticket, and whlose tenure no mant thought of questioning, but who were not satis fled with their own success and went into the conspiracy to deprive others, as legally elected as themselves, of ed their rights, is truly sad.

Parties owning bodies of land which they wish to dispose of to IMMI GRANTS, will do well to avail them selves of this splendid offer. LAND OWNERS IN RED RIVER, SABINE, WINN, VERNON OR NATCHITOCHES, who desire land advertised for sale to immigrants, can have the same done in the VINDICATOR-STATING LOCALITY, CIIARACTER OF SOIL, IM PROVEMENTS, WATER, QUALITY AND PIucE, on the co-opperative plan, I. E. we will charge regular rates for the advertisement, and take pay as fol lows; ONE IIALF CASH, the other half when the land is sold. By this moans we become interest ed in the sale of the land with the owner, and will give our personal at tention to answering all inquiries re lating thereto. We hope our friends throughout the section named, will give their at tention to this matter. The great need of Louisiana at this time is Capital, Immigration and Intclhgent Labor. Capital, to invest in our Mineral and Agricultural lande, " .. .. . ."IwUalwinrIu perniln - nently settle thereon, and Intelligent labor to develop our resources. Why cannot we compete with our sister States in inducing the one and the locating of the other ? Our lands are cheap, rich and productive, pro ducing the great staples of the world, viz: cotton, sugar, tobacco, and all the small grains. Nowhere on the continent does fruit conic to such per fection; oranges, apples, peaches, pears and grapes, together with all the smaller varieties, are produced in abundance. Our climate is healthy and salubrious; our seasons are mild and even. Nature has been kind to us in all ways, and all tlhat remains now to be done, that oui land may prosper, is that Capital and Labor may be induced to come among us. The first will find a rich field to re ward it, and the latter will be hearti ly welcomed. We conclude that all will see the great advantage of advertising, in order to lay before the people of the bleak North, and the barren Atlantic board, the elysiuP that awaits the hardy, industrious immigrant, in Louisiana. Let land owners show faith by works and give as a trial. BUIST'S CARDESII SEEDS. FIULL supply will he on hand soon also onion sets and early rose potatoes. Janl. 13-tf. J. C. TRICHEL.
