Manpay, No. 70 Gravier Street, New Orleans, who has for sale the celebrated Manpay Garden Seeds, which he will sell wholesale or retail at rea sonable prices. Merchants still contend that four million bales of cotton were made in 1870. And it is generally admitted that white men made more than half of this immense crop. Negro labor in the South is on the walne, and white labor is on the increase. Our friends Fotsacher :and Virgin are busy from morning till late in theevening, putting up garden seeds for the country. These have become two standard seed stores. Their in tegrity in all their dealings is unquestionable, and those who trade with them may rest as sured that they get what they bargain for. We reccommend all country merchanta to make the acquaintance of these gentlemen who are doing so much for the prosper ity and independence of the State. This year will be pretty severe on most people, but there are better times ahead. People are learning how to economize, from a stern master, necessity. They are learning the true value of a dime, of gardens, of home made provisions, and half-worn clothes. They are now on the true road to indepen ence. Were it not for that abominable state debt, and our erushing taxes, and our inta mona State Legislature, our State would soon be out of the wilderness. The Legislature continued to appropriate the credit of the State, until the last hour of the semion. They ran the State debt up to twenty-fve millions, the utmost limits allow ed by the Constitution. Men elected princi pally by negroes, men without property, and who do not represent property, have voted away the credit and money of the State, other people's money, as though it were Confeder ate money, worth about ten cents to the dol lar. How long will suchabominable proceed ings be toleratedi The Chattanooga Company were favered with another legislative smile. The 'hungry boys" voted, in another shape, which was as good to the company as a subsidy, of twaid a half millioas, to the three million ' ebsidy given the company last winter. That eompa ny would not take ten millions of dollars for the favors they have received from the city council of Ne'r Orlean and the J Le .:ial -. - --r .., ssrWrUUWI Wds0nn gry boys fed them out of the same trough. Taxpayers, look ahead for breakers! YealO soon be on a reefst! Thomas. odey this week has s new ad vertisement in our columns. He has for sale machinery agricultural implemeats, engine-, pumps, sawmills, shingle machines, cotton gins, plows, corn planters, cultivators, mow ing macbimes, cane mills, evaporators, et., etc. Mr. Bodley does an extensive business, and takes a lively interest in introducing the latest improvements in agricultural imple ments, and such machinery as is most needed in this country. Give him a sail. See his advertisement for farther partieulars.

As we caime on a flying trip to go ibek I a day or two, we do not expect to gather much news of ilmportance for our readears. THE LEGISLATULRE. The Legislature closed its session last night in confusion and disorder, such as was never before seen in any legislative body on this continent. The city papers for the credit of the City, and the State, tell but a part of the disgraceful story, of the last honrseot that in famous body. God save the State. STATE OF THE PUBLIC MIND. The public mind in Louisiana is chafed and irritated almost beyond endurance. On the surface all is quit. Long winded complainmts against the political wreckers of the State have almost entirely ceased. A growl, a mut ter. angry eyes, and scornful countenances, are the faint indications of the righteous in dignation which the l.eople smother, like vol caui fires in the bosom of the earth. Here in New Orleans the taxes are crushing the life out of the people. They drive many to intemperance, and almost to madness, des pondence, and suicide. For every five dol lars taxes wdich go for thegood of the wreck ers. And property is seized and sold if these crushing and disheartening taxes fail to Ibe forthcoming on demand. Carpet Baggers, Scalawags, and negroes put the screws to the tax-payers in the most heartless manner, and draw out taxes, as dentists draw sound teeth; but they draw these taxes for the benefit of those who make infamous laws, and enfomce them. How many mothers and children in New Orleans, live on half rations of food and clo thing, and of the common comforts of life, that these cormorants may grow fat on others toils? Could the distress which our rulers and lawmakers have brought upon New Or leans, and the State of Louisiana be corructly and generally understood, the people would rias in their might, and with thongs, would drive our heartless oppressors from the State, as the Savior drove the money changers from the temple, which they had profaned and turned into a den of thieves. The people, the honest, thinking, industri ous white people of Louisiana were never more united in feeling andsentiment on pub lic matters than they now are. They all say, give us honest men, men of sense, and men of hearts, to rule over us. We are sick of party deceit, and of fossil, and new fangled corrup tions. MONEY PLENTY. SBankers and brokers say there is plenty of money in New Orleans, but nothing but the Sbeet of paper can call it out. They have no money to loan to the country; except to such as will shiptheir crope,andgive largo consider e ations, besides the interest they pay on loans. f Enterprise and honest industry in the country 0 cannot get favors from the money lenders of New Orleaas. For such classes three per cent 1- a month will not secure loans. Enterprise in 1 Louisiana eannot borrow money, unless it will Susbmit to a tax of twenty per cent, on the r loan. The banks loan no money even to planters. - The commission merchants borrow of the I banks, and loan to planters, and it is to their interest for the planter to makelarge crops of corn and home supplies, because they get a commisiion on all they sell for the planter, f and oa meat that they bay for Jaim. Can a State ever be prosperous with so many dead weights upon its enterprise anul in Vu t-y? To us it mdems impossible. The whole system needs revising before we can be c eome an independent and prosperous people. RA .RD crUP. nir, rll y is ple-itll1i for Thi--~ lhol have good paper. Country merchants have trusted negroes extensively, and have lost by it. They have also credited white people ex tensively, who couldn't pay up. The country merchants are unable to pay the city mer chants, and this accounts for the pressure up on some of the old and strong houses in this city. There is no money in the country. When the planters pay off their hands, overseers. and mechanics, pay for their Western mules, horses and provisions, and pay for the use of borrowed money, they are short, and cannot generally pay their store accounts and home expenses. The ceuntry is drained of money, and there is none left for anybody. These big crops of sugar and eotton are de coeiving. There is no money in them for the country where they are made. The West and New York, get all the profit on Southern staple rops. When we make home supplies of provisions, and raiseour own horses and mules, we will not need New Orleans and New York money, to ran the plantations ol this State. There will then be plenty of money in Louisiana, in 1 the country parishes. FIREKMN'M CELE. B ATION. I The Alreume's celebration .was a grand street dispiay. As usual on such occasions, their engines were magnificently decorated i with wreaths of flowers, bouquets, and besa tlful devices, the turn out having more appear. aoe of a portable jeweller's shop, than of a e machine of power and utility. The Hook and LLalder omapanies were out in all their glory. The firemen were neatly and eompletely uni forn.ed,tbey are men of medium else, no large or small men among thens; their discipline i and deport.ent were exceilent, their bands in keeping with all the other arrangements, eity. SCanal Street was so packed with crowds of men, women, and children, that one could hardly make his way through in any direo tion. Bt ordler reigned everywhere so far as we could observe. TUE DIAYHA %BRASS BSAXD. A brass band from Indiana was in attend anuce, and wq at the headof the procession, which excited much interest. They were paid i six hundred dollars and expenses to attend I the eelebration, and play on that occasion. I They are a flue body of men, and addel much - to the interest of the day. IIARDIB's MAPS.

Though the soil of this place is capable of producing a great variety of valnatle crops, for some unaccountable reason, sugar is the all absorbing crop in the lower portion of the State, and cotton in the upper portion. This undivided attentionl to sugar in the lower part creates a great demamnd for staves and heading for sugar hogsheads and molasses barrels, and for picux, posts, and sawed lum her for lencing and Uililding I urposes. So great is this dema;td, that ann extcnsive trade is carried on in thant lille, and it constitutes the chief business of a large class of operatives who go by the mIune of "Swampers." These are gecleally lumeU who have ispent a great portion of their lives in the great for ests of the North and West, and who can handle the axe with the same facility that a weaver can handle his shuttle, or the editor his pt. The bu-iiness of the wamlulpcr is rather la borious, but it lhas charms which beguile the adventurous spirit, aund is not without its agreable features and sunny side. Tilie SWAMIPEIIS' CAMP. If tile reauler will accomnptny me, I shall in troduce him to the Swampers' Camp. It is situated half a mile from the west shore of Grand Lake. It Is loosely constructed of cy preas slabs, the ridge pole being supported by two ilnmense gumn trees,one of which answers the double purpose of chimney and back log. In the front end, near the fire place, on one side, are stored the groceries, meat, flour,etc,, and on the other is situated the table, which consists of an unhianged door, takoen from somne mule stable, and placed on two cross pieces, which are supported !.y four crontches driven into the gronnld. In the rear cands the tleds are placed, inll the same elevated style. They are made up of cypress slabs, paluiettoes, moss, and regula tion blankets. On account of its surround ings, this was nanmed "Camp Palmetto." As we writen the tenants of this camp are at their work. We will step down and see how they appear. TIIE sWAMPERS. That mild lookint, square built man, whom you see elevated on that scaffold board, chop ping down the cypress tree, is W. J. P., the contractor, than whom no better or fairer "Boss", nor one better liked by his men, exists. Notice that young tanu who has just paued f us. What a well adjusted frame! Notice >is se round but goodlooking dark complexioned o features! Look at his mischievous, hazel eye! h He is the wit, and life of the Camp. His r name is B. S., and he is a native of Virginia. s. He is on his way to camp, to cook supper, it v being his tour of duty for that interesting of part of a Swamper's life. t And here comes L. B., a native of Ohio. HeI in is my swamp partner. Though a Swanmper, I he is one of nature's noblemen. He stands six 1e feet high, weighs 190 pounds avoirdupois, has brown curly hair and light complexion, his s fine countenance never bereft of a pleasant e smile. Look at the sinewous motion of his ir limbs as he comes towards us! earrying the , cross-cut saw, which I suspect the Boss wishes a me to sharpen! "WVell, Cap.!" he exclaimed, as he approached, "how do you wake it?" Pretty fair Lima, I replied; what are you do , tag with that saw' "Boss wants you to file _ it,, and I'm going to get somse wood for Bird," se said he. - Now we will more back to camp whore I must invite you to take a seat, until Bird .ro vides supper. In a short time the Boss ire eupper, anu we ga'tn~ l a.onnll tL'ta'ble. - "Stranger, What shall I help you tot ;ali '|I give you some of this dish, sald bean gam beo It is wade of boiled beans. giblete ofbork, | squirrel, coon. and rabbit. And here is some •' "jambolia" pie, which is a Jumble of all the - raps and fragments of the preceding day, - mixed up with corn meal, and fried properly. ! Then here we have some of Bird's sla.gacks, which by the way are likely to be tough, and to try your digestive organs. L The meal being over a large fire is built, ' and all seat themselves around the cheerful blaze. Jokes and stories are the order of the night. Time passes pleasatly. Bird tells of the apple paroingk pumpking cutting, and bean stringing parties on Big Sandy, sad ad vises me to get posted beforehand, if I ever - go there, or the girls may make me the sub -ject of special conversation. As I was in the act of pulling off my Jsoots two coons commenced a quarrel near camp. Seizing a boot-jack, I rushed out, followed by Bruce, who had snatched up a hatehet. After a lively chase, at times tangled in vines and falling over logs, the coons are treed. The Boss, who had stopped to load his rifle, then came up, wfth nostrils dilated with the excitement, and shooting wild by moonlight, he missed his game. "My turn next," cried Bruce, glancing at the rifle, and at the coons which he saw in the limbs of the trees. Bird a then appeared with a lighted candle, and the old trick was resorted to, one holding the s candle, anotier shooting over his shoulder, a shinisg the coon's eyes. One coon was shot between the eyes, and E the other thsough the head. The Company | then retired to camp, and to rest.'

The representative of the Picayune ha:v called ths morning nupon Mr. Graham, State Auditor, found him at his desk li engaged in making out, in l'mngb, an es"in of the State debt, from data before hiim. Mr. Graham states that he h:ad refuse pay the claim of Mr. Nixon, and would r to pay all claims against the State, acer from the acts of tihe last legislature, e. those necessary for the current expen. the State Government. Concerning the claims against the not embraced within its current e'xpe should require the decision of the h tribunal of the State b.foire he would att to pay them, as he was in doubt cence what might Ibe uousiderel the State d though he is of the opinion that it has alre: exceeded the constitutional lumition by sev' eral million dollars. The following is Mr. Graham's estimate, in rough, of the State debt, present and event n al, up to the 1st of January, 1871, a detaik list of which will be published hereafter: Bonds actually issued..........22,5C0.233 Miescellaneous Indebtedness..... 867,533 96 Outstanding Warrants.......... 1,300,311 81 Outstanding Certificates of In debtedness............... - 93,655 62 Obligations of the State to issune Bonds (about) .............. 10-l,),smOw 00 Grand total................36,021,734 62 Sir.co the above was in type, Mr. Graham informs us that the obligations of the State to the New Orleans, Baton Rouge and ViekF burg Railroad, estimated in the above as $1,000,000, is, as first ascertained from its ofli cers, :i,220,000, increasing the outstanding obligations above enumerated $5,250,000, and inereasing the grand total to over $40,(.00,000. Mr. Graham states that he was acting in this matter not only upon his authority, but by and with the advice of the Governor of the State, and thohgh it was not his province to go behind the acts of the Legislature in Spasing upon the legitimacy of claims allowed by it, he had determined to he guided only in the mode of payment by the opinion of the final court of arbitrament, the Supreme Con rt I of the State of Louisiana. He wants that conrtto settle,beyond ques tion, what is the actual debt of the State, and whether the constitutional limit has, or has not, been reached. Our readers will nniderstand that the items º in the appropriation bill, lately passed, will all be wai"f3ed for by the Auditor, with ta exception of special claims against the State, in which is included a claim of over - $90,000 allowed to Wm. S. Pike EMq. [N. O. Picayune. Springs.ei-rsld, of the 28th ult., says thaflint I the hogs in the neighberlumod of that place are affected with a disease, most of the symp toema resembling triclina. They are first attacked with severe heaving and oughing. from which they ssum die, when the curcase is found to be a liviug mass of worms, while the flesh crumbles off in little hard Iarticles tab t the size of a buckshot. This sa fearful disease, the more so, as it is frequently communicated to the human system, by the use of meats which 're affeo with these parasites.
