The N. O. Picayune pulls off
Its glasses and spits in the face
of the Cincinnati Coipmetciâl in
the following spiteful an<5 logical
style :
"The Cincinnati Commercial
gravely assess that the news of
the chimerical outrages in Madi
son parish, circulated by the re
liable Murre! I, and propogated
through the country by Repub
lican telegrammers and Mr.
Howard Carroll, caused a fall in
State consols to 36^. This is
about equal to the Commercial's
average capacity for judging the
relation between cause and ef
fect. That paper evidently thinks
that all jwst hoes must necessa
rily be propter hoes ; as for in
stance, that tl^i publication of
Tuesday mornfng's Commercial
is the direct consequence of
Monday's rise in cotton futures,
or that the failure of Prof. Proc
tor's meteor shower was caused
by the Ute war. However, ad
mitting that Louisiana consols
declined to 36^ in consequence
of Murrill's Madison parish out
rages, bow is it that they are
now quoted at 48^? On the
same principle they must have
gone up becaose Murrill's Madi
son parish outrages turned out
to be a pure chimera, originating
either in. Murrill's fertile fancy,
or in the invention of Mr. Wood
ford and of Mr, Howard Carroll.
