WHARTON ft CO., No. 88 Common street, between Cainp and Magazine, New Orleans, are our authorized Agent« for that city. pr Reading Mutter on Every Page« THE ELECTION. Returns from the parishes come in slowly and iqeagerly. The unusu ally large vote polled in most of them and the long array of names upon the ticket requiring so mach more time than formerly for the commissioners and tallymen to make the counts, tended to delay the re ception of anything like definite de tails. At the City Hall precinct in this city the calling out and count ing of the vote commenced after the .close of the polls on Saturday even ing, continued all that night and was not completed until Sunday after noon ; the Bame at the Court House precinct, only the time consumed was Btill greater, the job not being completed uutil late Sunday evening. Yesterday forenoon the report from New Orleans was that the count had not yet been completed, and that up to that time, the majority there against the Constitution was known to be 2,500. Rather a small show ing, which we hope, however, may be largely increased in the full sum ming up. Three preciucts in West Baton Rouge had given altogether a Demo cratic majority of 182 and it was believed that the two remaining pre cincts (Lobdell's Store aud Poydras) would swell this majority to about 200. West Feliciana is said to have gone for the Radicals by 900 ma jority. In East Feliciana, the vote ia caïd tu l/c tween the two tickets. Livingston is reported having gone heavily Democratic, as will bo the case, we presume, with the othor Eastern parishes. Iberville reported having gone Radical. Lafourche, St. Mary and St. Lan dry, all reported Democratic by large majorities. Those who failed to "vote early" at the late election, but worked in betimes, so as to be "bet ter late than never," had the satis faction of "voting often." Each voter residing in either of the city wards had the right to vote three distinct tickets in separate ballot boxes,—one headed "for" or "against the Constitution," as the case might be, and containing the names of the State, Parish and District candi dates, another with the names of the municipal candidates upon it, and another having upon.it the names of ,the Ward candidates for Justice of the Peace and Constable. ■Judge Posey was prompt in his attendance to hold Court in Point Coupee, last week, agreeably to the terms of interchange made with Judge Cooley, but the latter failed to fulfill his part of the agree ment to hold Court in West Baton Rouge. The consequence is, the loss of a term in that parish. Judge Cooley was a candidate for the 6th District Judgeship in New Orleans ; hence, we supposed his time and attention were otherwise taken up. S&F Late telegramB from Wash ington say that the Democrats are offering to make even bets that the Impeachment trial will result in an acquittal of the President. Cause, the demoralization and divisions among the Radicals. — — MP" Massachusetts people deposit in their savings banks half a million dollars a week. NOBLY DONE! The parish of East Baton Rouge has given a most emphatic majority against the Black Crook Constitu tion and the mongrel ticket to which it gave parentage. Look at the figures elsewhere given, and behold how that thing of abominations dignified with the name of Constitution, and the mis erable medley of mean, low white, black and tan office-seeking mendi cants, have been utterly routed,— "horse, foot and dragoons," in this city and.parish. The Democratic Conservatives, true to themselves, to their country, their homes, their families, society, civilization,—in fine, to the instincts of patriotism, respectability and self preservation,—came out in their might, Vtfrked like Trojans, and overwhelmed the carpet-baggers and tfeeir deluded followers and adherents with a regular Waterloo defeat. Considering ' the great disparity existing between the number of white and that of black registered voters in the parish,—the prepon derance being largely in favor of the latter,—the result is no less aston ishing than gratifying, and in this respect our neighboring parish of West Baton IJouge also claims both our admiration aud astonishment. Truly, our people did well and nobly, and not alone to our white population be all the credit and glory awarded for services and sue cess in this heroic contest : a great many of our black friends stood 'firm and true in their devotion to the cause of sound principles and wis dom. Shoulder to shoulder with their old, long-tried and trusty white friends did they go, singly and in bands, to the polls, and vote the white man's ticket,—vote against the Constitution, and agaiust the in iquitous plotters and workers who had all along been essaying to dupe the poor negroes with a view to their own selfish and unholy purposes and to the degradation, abasement and ruin of the latter. -Hut, thank Heaven the negroes were not all so easily duped. They were not all of them such fools and ignoramuses as to sell themselves, body aud soul, to the carpet-b interest. Many of them, as the se quel of the election in this city and parish and W est Baton Rouge has shown, were wise, prudent and in telligent enough to know "on which side their bread was buttered. I hey knew who were their best friends and with whom to ally their best interests, aud having thus proved themselves our faithful friends and allies in a time of dire emer gency, they should be held in grate ful remembrance for their fidelity and friendship. We must cherish, encourage and reward that fidelity and friendship. Carpet-bagism in this region has grown "small by degrees and beau tifully less," and looks as though it was pretty well played out. It must eventually "go glimmering among the thiugs that were." A speedy exit say we, to its itinerant majesty. It will be ''a happy rid dance of bad rubbish," when this community shall look upon its like no more, when our whole State and the South shall be freed from its blighting and unwholesome pres ence. EÛT "Tommy, my son, what are you going to do with that club ?" "Send it to the editor, of course." "But what are you going to send it to the editor for ?" "Cause he says if anybody will send them a club he will send them a paper." The mother came very near fainting, but retained consciousness enough to ask ; "But, Tommy, dear, what do you suppose he wants with a club ?" "Well, I don't know replied the young hopeful, "unless it is to knock down subscribers as don't pay for their paper." t&" All self-made men are not fa mous, nor are they all remarkable for intelligence. For a man may be self-made who has made a goose of himself. ELECTION RETURN FOR EAST BATON ROUGE. namks OF candidates. Against the Constitution For tbe Constitution For Governor.
