The ()nachita parish Teh'lra ph tell us that .Jlilge 1,aker, a noto rious Iadiea] of tlhat section whomi decent opinion expelled fr' a time, has returned with a view to then rgaizatioll of the ll"Workinig man's Party." We suppose the idiots, even of Louisiana's "patriotic hamd" unn derstand what that means, andl who working mieni are in a negro parish. We have warned our people all along about these Illows, and our warnings have now proof that t they shouil. have been heeded. t The moment these fellows were assured of protection for past crimes ; the very hour they were convinced that the Courts might con,,viet, but they would never be punished, to work they went in order to retrieve that which they c had lost by a united opposition of the whites of the State. Is this so of any other South- e ern State i Wade Ifamilton of South Caro lina is a man of too much brains t to he caught playing a desperate t game, when the degredation of his people was in one end of the bal ance, and the posibility of the success of a sickening, maudlin policy, which achieved will tl iamouit to nothing, in the other. tl lIe went to work to clean out the n Angean Stable; to purify politi- p cal morals by punishing political be malefactors, and lie is succeeding, Oi and will leave his people free from the danger inl future of such gov ernments which, in the past, well nigh ruined them. T Hampton does not desire a State Convention at present to frame a State Constitution, because he J, desires first, to make official mnal feasance feel the rigors of out.- P raged law, so that other "states men" will find it in the end cheap er to be honest than otherwise. How is it in this Statei tli Our officials are of the maudlin v sentimental stripe, (we will not a" say they are Uriah Heapish, al- iU though they look like it) and when honest Courts attempted to do their duty in one instance, there was interference at once.

A people can lose liberty by yea trusting it to the keeping of a dot weak man, and Louisianian's had better arouse to a sense of their danger at once. the The questions asked by those ical who have brains to see the danger is, as to the conduct of those of -im ficials whom they elected. Is this IIic conduct the result of idliotcy, or s of demagoguery? There can be lars some forgiveness extended a fool, lars but to a demagogue nothing is a dleser-ved but the scorn and ex ecration of mankind. cent and Act No. 80 of the Acts of 1877- goo SE'TIonS 3d.

A home in which they can safely raise their t profit children, which they can embellish m1i m iake comforitalde, and have a rest ga cot- ilg place in old age. This law is, no st doubt, a wise one, and cannot act an invjn,'y to th (credritor. lie knows t, but bef:e hand, at the time he gives le short credit, that hle cannot look to the There Ieal E-state for payment, but must pounds rely on other resources, or the hon est v of his debtor. erecl in But while our I,egisl;tors have ijuarter passed these protective laws for the farmuer, what have they dBon for the merchant?

Suppose a tetr chant in the montih of February ad as not vances snpplies to a farmer to aid will be nim to make a crop, and keeps on supplying until May, at the end of that time another merchant makes scrage advances, and after awhile still an if fully other advances ; the law makes their I yield. privileges concnurrent. Where is the lied in first merchants protection, if the cropl is not sufficent to pay themi all ? ii, and Now, there is anotlier case: A m vere merchant advances supplies to a d atnd planter, the planter pledges his whole crop to hpay for said supplies. The crop is made, and enotugh of it to pay the debt, suppose the farmer instead is hill of delivering up tihe whole crop as Is per his agreement, to liquidate his debt, dout i- dlisposes in some other way a portion or the whole of it, and tihus fails to cd and comply with his contnact, where is cotton tlie uerhants pro-tection 'I Where is his renmedy It is tal,. those cases is re- are not of frequent inttiirenltce, but ad they do oc-cur, and I think, as the fa mer is protetected in his llormestead. better so should thle merchant be protected f corn in his capital. Since the war the merchant has done much to rebnild the country, which was left nearly a desert after the retreat of Banks, he generously used his eapital, credit L and energy, to pIroduce again large crops, rebuild fences, repair nhouses, , ae cut and bring about an era of compara live prosperity. Therefore, wlhile approving the protection given to round tfarmers as a wise measure, I think c it would not he out of place for or next Legislature to devise some law nicest to guard agninst the above contingen cies; it is hiol,td that this matter will ined receive their serious attention, andt that our law-givers in their wisdom loyed. will find a way to protect all citizens or in- witlout creating injury or giving of at of uce to any. i.
