The Bulletin say» no new eases of small pox hare been discovered in Monroe, and no fears are euter tained of the spread of the disease. The cotton crop in Webster pal ish is not looking well at present, but the Tri bane hopes that a good crop will yet be made. À bill has been introduced In the Legislature donating all lands purchased at tax sales by the State in the parishes of Morehouse, Richland and Franklin, the condi tions being that tha railroad com pany shall pay the taxes and com plete the road in Ave years. A heavy frost visited Washing ton, D. C, on the 30th May, being the third in successive nights. Heavy damage was done to corn, oats, potatoes, garden vegetables, and especially tobacco» A freez ing temperature was also expe rienced throughout Western Penn sylvania, Ohio, Indiana. Illinois, Michigan and Wisconsin. We have been receiving lately as ah exchange "Figaro," an Uhr*' 1,rated paper on the stylo of Puck It is published in New Orleans, Mr. Richard Weightman, formerly of the Tiraes-Dcmocrat staff, being its chief editor. Its cartoons are well executed, and speak volumes for tue energy and enterprise of the publishers. Success to Figaro, A bill was introduced in the State Senate the other day to abol ish Article 167 of the Constitution, relative to lotteries, and received the necessary two-Thirds vote, but when the question eaice up in the House it failed to get the sanction -uf two-thirds of the members (of t^-t frflt<*J* 'flMw» n.f usual, voted to snstaic the lottery «WMttttoaaaa. The sugar aad rice planters of tkxitfaem Laeiriaua will make an effort to «ead a delegation to the National Democratic Convention pledged to advocate a protective tariff plank in the National plat lena. This being a fact, it be hooves the people of this section of Louisiana to send only such men to the State convention who will reflect the sentiments of their constituents on this important question. This sentiment is al most unanimously in favor of tariff reform. (tar. McEnery issued seven par dons in one day last week, five of those pardoned having tain con victed of murder. Among the lat ter were the three DeRance broth ers, of New Orleans, who were sen tenced to the penitentiary for fire years for killing Edwin Mix sev eral years ago, and who had served out about one-hatf their time. The Governor may have good and sufficient reasons for thus using executive clemency so lavishly, but to those who are in the dark as to the "whys" and "where fores" connected with this busi ness, it looks as if he might be over-doing the thing. A bill has pasted the Louisiana House of Repre s en tatives appro priating 130,000 for the relief of the overflow sufferers, fiepresen tfttive Williams, from this parish, opposed the bill, and properly, we think, on the ground that the wa ter a short time the people would be able to make a living for them selves. These free ration» have demoralized the labor to an alarm ing extent In some of the parishes, and their promiscuous distribu tion should be discontinued at once. There are probably some people in the overflow districts that are really objects of charity, and their wants should be sup plied, but the issuing of Ave rations by the wholesale to a lot of laborers who could find employ ment in other sections that are free from overflow is altogether unnecessary. We are satisfied our Representative's vote on this question will be endorsed by his constituency in Morehouse. was rapidly falling and that In. inrÉilmA Ik* iwmln amnli ka Waldrop in Texas. A ustin , T exas , Juue 2, '84. Editors Clarion :— I let't Baton Rouge last Tuesday in a jiffy. I had a row with a »täte Senator on the lottery bill. He and I got up a heated discussion respecting the monopolistic features of Howard s Lottery, aud 1 blurted out au opin ion which I have entertained for years, bnt which the aforesaid Sen ator did not relish. I simply re marked that I considered the legis lator who opposed other great and good lotteries in Louisiana merely a hired puppet and a truckling tool of C. Howard's. This remark kin dled the Senator's ire, brought down upon my bead and face the very fiercest volley of clean-cut pro fanity and provoked him to extend to me one of two desperate alterna tives, namely; cith"r to fight hiin on the spot in Suïlivaun stylo or else meet hiin at the earliest possi ble period on the "field of (ilisj honor." I was amazed. Tite man is double my size. He tips the avoirdupois beam at 193. His arms are prodigious piles of firm bones, tough muscles and sound meat. These powerful muscular appendages are healthy, active, strong, having been thoroughly de veloped through the "art" of sling ing a seven-pound ax and swinging a massive mail in converting huge legs Into instruments of tence building. In other words, this in censed and berculjan Senator Is fresh from the rail-producing for esta of Louisiana and I wan afraid of hin. I durst not stand in front of his gigantic carcase simply to be "sausaged" in the defense of an honest, correct, deep-seated opin ion. Therefore, I told him to re main within the folds of his »taichedfroet garment and I would endeavor to "see him later." He insisted that I there and then name the time, place and weapons. I asked tor an "extension." 1 went off to consider, and was not long in arriving at the happy conclusion that I bad business in Texas. So here I am in the broad domains of the Lone Star State—a State so large that myself and forty mad Senators could live in it for years without a collision. Here in Texas differs from Raton Rouge. In that little village a man of my active habits is likely to meet the men during the same day ford Comfortable qui ood-ciass circus, £he citizens Baton Rouge know what all their neighbors nave for breakfast, din ner and supper. I determined to remain no longer in. a town of such diminutive dimensions, especially siaoe I had aroused the blood thirsty cravings of such an im mense Senator. Henoe I left. I took the first west bound trainband followed thevagely admonition of the illustrious founder of the New York Tribune—-I came West old man. I brought my opinione as to C. Howard's plan of perpetua ting the lottery monopoly with me however and it will require stronger argumente than the menacing atti tude of a Senatorial rail -splitter to gouge those opinions eat of my stubborn head tea "Fixed opin ions" are atnMmrm things, and looked in a stubborn head, are aa imattvabie aa a male with the "studs** 9 I am delighted with Texas. Her towns ail lock fresh and healthy. Her people look strong and hearty. Along the railroads innumerable places of liquid refreshments are found and in them the traveler can find the festive hero of the plains with broad-brimmed white bat, keen-rowelled spurs and glittering barrelled six-shooters. At those places do congregate the bone and sinew and silver quarters and hardy mustangs of Texaa prairies. The riders of these tough equiues quaff Kentucky juice, spin Texas yarns and "chaw" Virginia twists with all the relinking energy of second ward log rollers. Si nee I left home I have met no class of people In such complete consonance with toy habits, cmtoflB« ana "raising. 11 ' Wîlôn I first went to New Orleans, immediately after my defeat for the Legislature, I endeavored to knit friendly relationship with the men I met b? dividing tobacco with them. My generosity was Invari* *• * V JL .as * . * tempt. I next offered my aaaoei *tes—and I bad many—a "nine fWV* hat still I waa acornfuUy re pulsed in my eiferte tobe "friend *»d U» gifted Todd, who gracefblly adorns one of the highest judicial aeata known to Louiaiana jurispru dence, waa the first and only in New Orieana who stooped to Sake a anifter with me." Judge Todd la a friend of mine and fee enjoys my complete confidence. So does Blaine, of Maine. He grate folly sipped with me and I proudly sipped with bim on the boulevards of Washington City. But here in Texas people "divide tobacker," swap pipes and "get on tears" with a unanimity of jocase sentiment that is truly refieshing. There is no cold, formal, aristo cratic reservation. There is no balderdash damphoolishness about matters. Everybody is easy, "dry" and libera). Even the Governor, who is not aa Irishmao, but whose name iß Ireland, will take a drink in a minute. He keeps a long, slick, black bottle under his desk and it is common property with all his friends. I was not long in gaining the confidence of and cementing a friendship with, Ireland. He is a genial,Jovial, amiable fellow ancl expressed great delight that 1 should have called to seè him. 1 hastened to inform him where I was» from (I did not stop to tell him why 1 was from where I was) and boie him the regards and com pliments of our great Governor. This voluntary and wholly unso licited act upon mv part reminded Ireland that Sam McEnery and he had recently been engaged in some epistolary quarrel, which the Texas Governor regards as having been precipitated by the Louisiana Gov ernor. But before J was through chatting him I extorted au admis sion from him lhat our Sam can at least d^Tfa the Texan in the mauu faciare of trong, civil, chaste, cor rect coi-position. In other words, I forced John Ireland to admit that Sam McEnery can wax him to death with a pen;"but," be added, "I can beat your Louisiana shrimp eater all hollow riding-a mustang and winging an Injun " This 1 admitted and John and I parted on the most friendly terms. Austin is a gay town, full of red face men and pretty women. The State House compares with ours at Baton Rouge something like New York does with Bastrop. The streets here are broad, smooth and beautiful. Magnificent "drives," are kept in splendid order and these Texane can make their prairie pin« fairly whiz along the public highways. The Texan« are tireless gam blers. They'll bet on anything and on either side. They'll even give a "stranger" chotee of aides of any disputed question and bet with him just ftr fun. Jo the presence of three or Your men the other day I casually Remarked that the "Cap ital of Texju is a pretty city." A bystander ^answered by asking me if I had evfer been in the Capital of Texas. "Certainly; I am in that city now,"; I said. "I'll bet you drinks for the crowd and leave it to the first; man that comes along," be bantcritjgly remarked. "Good." In a moment a man came lumber ing along, and I said to him, "My friend, isn^t tbis the Capital of Texas?" ^No you dard-blasteJ, pale-faced gal loot you; this is the city of AuSting!" Of cours4 I set 'em up, and also resolved to abstain from gambling with Texans in the future. » » lam looking for a good town in which to start a paper. 1 thin k I'll self my bogs and otber^stock in 'the sc ond ward I think this great State will be my future home. A man here has plenty of elbow room, a want long felt by me, m the sec ond ward. But let what will come, survive or perish, sink or' swim, starve or fatten, I shall ever cherish a warm and tender feeling lor the brave, bold, good people of the sec ond ward.

Hen derson saying he would not accept nomination if offered, or serve if elected. When the name of Blaine was alluded to a storm of applause broke oat on the stage, floor and gallery which lasted five minutes. Contests in Alabama, Georgia and Virginia decided in favor of Arthur. Delegates from Illinois favor Logan, liai lot ing will not commence Wore to-day, and it is claimed that delay in proceedings is unfavorable to both Blaine and Arthur. It baa been decided that after committee on resolutions re port roll of States will be called for presentation of candidates. No division in committee to cre dentials. The platfora. haa been adopted. It reeomamnda each revision of the tariff aa will protect American interest» and American labor. The Importation of foreign labor, either from China or Asia, la deno unced. A cremation company, with a capital of ftOO.OOQ, haa been or ganized in Philadelphia and the business of burning tbe bodies of fered will soon be begun. The movement is endorsed by nearly all the leading physicians of that city» The United States House of Representatives, on the 27th ult, passed a resolution appropriating $100,000 more for the relief of the sufferers by floods on the Missis sippi.

The Webster Tribune says tbe heavy rainsthis spring have caused no little damage to farmers, and made it necessary to plant cotton over from two the three times. 1 A Starkbville; Miss., correspon dent of the Vifcksburg Herald, in reporting the death of Mr. Wm. F. Watt, says: M'\ Wm. F. Watt, an aged and respccted citizen of this place, died this evening of bronchial affection. He was formerly a citizen of Louis iana, where lie now owns consider able property. He moved to this place about three years ago, where he invested considerable money, endeavoring to improve the town by building stores and an opera hail,and othei improvements. His death is greatly regretted, as the town has lost one of lier most en terprising citizens, — .«a* Tbe Natchitoches Review thinks some amendments should be made by tbe Legislator* to tbat portion of Act. No. - of 1880, which dis criminates most unjustly against witnesses living within five miles of tbe court house, denying them remuneration for their attendance. They are certainly entitled to their mileage and per diem as other court witnesses, and their business at home is as important and pressing and their time as valuable as those who may chance to reside further. The law is a bungling one and the objectionable clause sbonid be re pealed. The World's Industrial and C otton Centennial Exposition at New Orleans, says tbe Times Democrat of last Saturday, will be the most coloeaaS and significant event in tbe history of tbe nation'« development. Its success la as sured. All of tbe carefully laid ami boldly conceived plans are now to be put in force- ail those Ideas which at one time seemed almost audacious in their magni tude and their ambition, are to be realized. Even now we can scarce ly realize tbe value and tbe signifi cance of it all, but most of those who read these lines will live to thank the inspiration tbat sug gested the New Orleans Exposi tion, and to honor aud celebrate the genius, the energy, tbe skill and the devotion that gave it form and substance.
