Mr. Cousinard has held at various times, the offices of City Marshal, Mayor and Sheriff of the parish, and fulfilled tho responsible duties pertaining to eaoh, to tho general satisfaction of the community. Libérai, and Praiseworthy .—We are ploased to learn, that Mr. J. C. Burden, of this parish, has kindly ten dered to tho State Fair Association, five thousand feet of lumber for the use of the Fair, free of chargo. The Association will be required to pay for such of the lumber only as may be damaged in the using. I jT Fenton's Empire Minstrels and Varieties Troupe which went from here to amuse and edify our Clinton neighbors recently, seem to Lave Bucceedtxl in that respect with a vengeance, judging from the tem per of the editorials on the subject, which appear in the two papers published there—the Democrat and Patriot. After pitching into the troupe for their professional and per eonal shortcomings, in the most ex coriating style, the Democrat winds up by saying : "Tho report is current and gen erally believed that this whole con cern was gotten up as a "sell" by the frolicsome boys of Red Stick. I f bo , it was a most decided failure and if the citizens of that place can enjoy auch representations, let their "Thes pians" hide their heads, aud in sack cloth and ashes weep over their per ▼erted taste." To all of which we would reply, that to our certain knowledge, the "frolicsome boys of Red Stick" had uothing whatever to do in the get ting up of the couceru alluded to, nor do we believe they would be guilty of attempting any such "sell" upon their Clinton neighbors. Neither are we aware that such representations as those given by the troupe afore said, have obtained general favor or popularity among our citizens. The meager patronage extended by them to those itinerant negro imitators would go to prove this. ■ A church in Baltimore has the motto upon the outer walls : "To the poor the Gospel is preached." Une morning these words were found un der it: "Not here though." __"Tho Paris correspondent of the New York World says Louis Na poleon intends to abdicate his throne on the closing of tho great Paris Ex position.

'Rich old men have their easy chairs ; editors have their uneasy ones. In New York city thirty-two papers are published. Migration aud Be-Migration. The history of nations furnishes abundant proofs of that migratory disposition which always seizes upon individuals and families in times of serious political troubles. The same disposition was manifested to a marked degree among many of the people of the South last year and the year before, when doubt and uncer tainty gave rise to apprehensions lest the inchoate movements after the close of the war, aiming at a general restoration of civil government and a return of national amity and con cord, might fail of their object, and a sea of endless troubles be left open to them, which they would fain avoid, if possible. Large numbers emigrated—some to Mexico, others to South America and Europe— forming in some instances considera ble colonies. In the course of time, however, the civil commotions inci dent to some of those countries wherein they had cast their lot, jeopardized the security and perma nence of those self-exiled bands, causing them to break up and dis band. A brighter dawning upon the political condition of the Southern States impelled the adventurers—as many of them as could—to return to their old homes. They came, but only to find that the political skies of their country, which, looking through the dim horoscope of time and distance, they had been led to imagine were clear and serene, were again becoming obscured by clouds of darkness and misgiving. Such a prospect was calculated to excite withiu them a regret that instead of retracing their steps to their old fa miliar places of abode, they had not bent them to some still more distant shores "beyond the main," and sought among strangers a more genial condition of affairs than greeted them here. Rueful in the contemplation of their political surroundings, there are many among the returned exiles as well as among those persons who have continued to remain in the country ever since the close of the war, who would gladly "pull up st aTees" if they could, and seek for those more favored latitudes wherever they are to be found, wherein to cast their lot. We perceive from late European accounts that the migratory and re migratory tides from the States of this continent are fast swelling the already large proportion of American residents abroad. In the metropoli tan districts, where formerly such classes were easily summed up by the hundred, they are now counted by the thousand. In addition to the stimulus given by political agitation and incertitude to the disposition manifested to seek for homes in foreign lands, a great iucentive to such a disposition is to be found in the fact, that Americans are faet discovering the secret, that they can manage to live fifty per cent, cheaper in Europe than they can in their own country. For the benefit of such as may have a hankering after Brazil, we copy the following extract lrom a letter published in the St. Louis Re publican. It is from the pen of a Missourian—who writes from Mo rettes, in the province of Parana under date of October 7th, 1SGG : I spent two months in looking around in this country, and I have now settled down with the determi nation to end my days here. Any man who will use proper industry can make a good living here, and soon surround himself with every necessary of life. Providence fur nishes gratis many luxuries which would be very costly in Missouri, such as delicious fruits, and some that not even Mr. Lucas could buy— perpetual spring or summer and pic turesque and romantic sceuery, with any number of flowers which would delight the heart of Mr. Shaw. With a few thousand dollars capital, and working as Americans generally do, I cannot see how a farmer can help becoming rich. Farms can be had for less than a dollar an acre. Labor is cheaper than in the States. Plenty of horses can be had at from ten to fifty dollars. Corn is worth one dollar and a half a bushel. We are within forty miles of a very good market, Paranagua, and even Rio is as accessible as Nashville is to the fanners around St. Louis. LOUISIANA LEGISLATURE.

L ondon , March 10.—The Sultan has made satisfactory concessions to the peo ple of Servia and has promised to carry out the troatios of 1856. The Cretan deputa tion hos reached Constantinople. Am Anti-gambling Sermon.— The Rev. T. D. Talmage, of Phila delphia, preached a few evenings since a sermon at his church in which lie depicted in eloquent though scath ing terms, the great moral sin of gambling, in its various and de praved phases and tendencies. The following are some of the points touched upon in his discourse : "The Church of God has not been willing to allow the world to have all the advantage of these games of chance. The church fair opens, and towards the close it is found that some of the more valuable articles are unsaleable. Forthwith, the con ductors of the enterprise conclude J that ibt 'y will raffle fot some of the valuable articles, and under pretense of anxiety to make their minister a present, or to please some prominent member of the church, fascinating persons are dispatched through the room, pencil in hand, to solicit shares, or, perhaps, each draws for his own advantage, and scores of people go home with their trophies thinking that all is right, for christian ladies did the embroidery, and christian men did the raffling, and the pro ceeds went to buy a new communion service ; hut you may rely upon it that, as far as the morality is con cerned, you might as well have won by the crack of the billiard ball or the turn of the dice." * • • * • '•The New York gold room, which, during the war, wa&Mbe scene of such unparalleled disgrace, had for its president a minister who was formerly president of a college ; and there are scores of men in the street to-day, on their way to church, whose costly family wardrobes and splendid 'turnouts' are made out of the distresses of'the sewing women, whose money goes into stock swin dles. There is human sweat in their golden tankards—there is human blood in their crimson plush—there are the bones of impoverished labor in the pearly keys of their pianos— there is the curse of an incensed God hovering over all their magnificence." *•••*• Where is the Church of God, that she allows in heig membership such gigantic abominations ? Is sin to be excused because it is as high as heaven and deep as hell ? The man who allows his name to go as President or Director in connec tion with an enterprise that be knows is to result in the sale of twenty thousand shares of an undeveloped nothing—God will tear off the cloak of his hypocrisy, and in the last day show him to the universe a brazen faced gambler. God's anathemas ill flash in his chandeliers, and rumble in his bowling alley, and rat tle in the swift hoofs of his 'silver bitted' grays. If he who steals a dollar from a money-drawer is a-thief, then he who by dishouesty gets $500,000 is five hundred thousand times more of a thief ; and bo the judgment will reveal."
