the men and the ight.
Warmoth is a native of llinois, and was
elected Governor of Lomisana in November,
1868. He induced the colored idembers of
the Legislature to believe that, by enacting
laws which would give him the power of a
king, he could protect the colored men of the
State against the enelty and oppression of
the white people. Whey gave him the laws
and the power, and he then displayed to
Lieut. Governor Dann and his party his
cloven foot, and venal and ambitious designs.
Be proposed to the Democratic party that
betray the negres, and give the
S to the Demoerals, if that party would
send him to the U. 8. Senate. They Iejected
Wanmoth in three years has ran the State
in debt free m teM millions to over forty one
millions of dollars, though the constitutional I
limit is twenty-five millions. He has been c

ministratiss the city debt has been increased A
nearly ten millions of dollars And he is I
said to have made himself a millions dollars n

the corrupt laws behind which he is en- c

arroganee, have simply become intolerable. t
G. W. Carter is a native of Virginia. Before I

and stood so high withthat denomination that i
he was considered, both in point of ability and I

He became Colonel of a Texas regiment in t
the late war, and acted, we believe, with ,
strict fidelity. to the Confederate cause during
the war. -
After the warhebecame demoralized, drank
to excess, became a gambler, and was utterly
reckless in regard to reputation or life.
From that time out his friends would wish to
draw a veil over his history. They offer for
him no apology. It is hardly conceivable
hew a man of his splendid abilities, his elo
q.emoe, learning, and standing in society,

But we believe he (never became very im

The lasteession of the legislature brought
him in open opposition to Warmoth with
whom hehad been acting. In dedance of all

Irelo . lBditmss:
Tr eit pqem r omplain, and justly, too,
r that some of the co euntry post-o®oes are mis
F erably managed. The interests of the city
journals sad of many other journals suffer
everely by these irregularities.
8rme letters have been delivered in Franklin
from three to six days after they were mailed
in l prleans. We have a daily mail at
Fran. . The mail bags leave the New Or
leans pest office at 7 o'clock in the morning,
and usually arrive at Franklin in from twelve
to fifteen hours. Why are our letters detain
ed which should go through without deten
tion, and be delivered when called for at the
post office the next morning 7
We have had letters opened by somebody
on the route, we do not pretend to say by
whom, because we don't know who opened I
them. We lace had our envelopes saved to
be critically examined. Letters that were
mailed with neat envelopes have been deliv- t
ered at Franklin with dirty envelopes, after
several days' delay, with evident proof of
having been opened and resealed. We have
directed letters to New Iberia, which have
been delayed on the route, and some of them
sent weeks since have never arrived at all. r
What does this meant We speak what we a
know. We have been watching these move- f
ments for weeks. v
There is foul play somewhere. Some of 1i
our postmasters are violating their oaths, n
much to the annoyance of the people. Let
h' or anything
the peto ce. ever
complaint against postofces and postmasters q
than lately. People have access to mail mat- a
ter in postofies who have no legal right to
handle the mail. Newspapers are stolen or
given away, and regular subscribers are often a
in this manner robbed of the newspapers they t
have paid for. This has become a great and t1
crying evil Some of the postmasters are 3
perfectly unscrupulous in such matters.
We do not say who is to blame, but we say
somebody is criminally to blame, and ought
to be punished. The loud and continual o
clamor of the people is not on account of a
Imaginary evils. The press and the people
are right on this subject. g
We hope all who have suffered by the n- g
glect or criminal acts of postmasters will t
make a note of these abases, write them
down, with names and dates. Set traps for i,
these culprits, play the detective, get evi- a
deuce against them, and prosecute them. Cor- a
rapt, bad men in public offices have wronged t
and insulted the people too long. Reaction
against corrupt public officers is going on in
New York, the West, New Orleans and else- t
where. Let the people everywhere follow o
it up. We can only punish wrong-doers and o
secure our rights by eternal vvilance and v
untiring perseverance. We must watch, as o
well as work Let every honest man do his t
duty, and public officers will be compelled to
do theirs, or to suffer the consequences of
wrong-doing. ARGUs. d

MIssouri Democrat Sore at the Treatment
Received by Douglass.
Editor. Planters' Banner :
The editor of the Missouri Democrat,
whose astute logic has long since engen
dered the opinion that he was fast verging
into lunacy, has fully demonstrated that
supposition beyond question, by his article
on the 24th inst., titled Fred. Dougi sas and
the Plauters' House.
Now, this composer of local bo~sh has be
come mortally offended at the I'ianters'
House, Mr. Cunningham, or some other
man, for refusing admissi,n to the dining
room and presencelof the lady guests, his
sable friend. We nev.r doubte-d his pre
ference for the essence of Africa, but such
a conglomerated mass of indignation at the
gentlemanly proprietors of the Planters'
House. and such eu!ocy to the negro,
sounds like "Peel Gautl " when about to
tike up a collection in church :
FRED. DOUGLASS AND THIE PLANTERS'
Hon. Fred. Douglass, in ability, culture
and gentlemanliness, everywhere recognized
as among the foremost of Amnericans, ar
rived in our city yesterday morning to
spend a few hours, in visiting some old
friends, before proneediug by rail to Green- I
ville, Ill., where he had an engagement to
lecture in the evening. He registered his
name at the Planters' House, and left to call
upon his friends, and after a couple of hours
returned to the Planter to dine. When
roceeding to the dj II, he was in
questioned, the book referred to, and it then
appeared that his name had been scratched
of. He asked for the reason, and the per
sonage confronting him declined to give 4
any. After several inquiries for the cause,
and being at last told be. Douglass, ought
to know, the latter in substance replied that
the very fact that the reason was refused
showed it to be an infasatous reason, and
with remarks to the effect that he ,nrely ex
perienced such treatment, and expected to
live to see the day when those who now ad
ministered it would themselves be ashamed
of it, he withdrew to look for a dinner else
During the conversation a large crowd
gathered about the speakers, and several
gentlemen exhibited their synatlathy with
Mr. Douglass, oue declaring, as he retired.
that it was " a daunued outrage," and
others, that instant prooc'edings ought to be
instituted to compel the Planters' Hou-e to
open its doors, as long as it pretended to be
a hostelry, to all gentlemen, iIrespectivelof
the color of their skin.
Mt. Douglass, whose princely bearing and
gentlemanly demeanor are as well known to
the public as his eruditfn and scholas ly
tastes, is received in other hotels through.
out the country without the least show of
objection, and is entertained gladly in pri
vate by the most cultured and refined people
of the land. This is the first difficulty of
the kind he has received on his present leo
ture trip, and it is a s Jsa ul reflection on
St. Louis' hospitality that it was permitted
tooccur here. At Dunkirk, where he was
denied admission to the- leading hotel six
years ago, he was received last week with
pleasure, and courteously entertained. A
few days ago he was at the Michigan Ave
nue Hotel, Chicago, ..which had not
been more honored by the receut presence
there of Alexis of Russia. At Springfield
he was offered the gratuitous hospitalities of
the two principal hotels, and at Jackson- I
ville he received the same marked attention.
Whatever may be a sid of his race, Fred.
Douglass is a gentleman, so far as brains and
culture and refinement can make one, and c
is the peer of any of the guests of the first
hotels in the land. Yet it seems his name
is unfit for the Planters' House register, and
afford him the dinner he wed afor. r r '
Now.,to those who have read this article of
lot the Denmecrat's, we ask: was ever demoraliza
*, tion so fully depicted as is the author of this
l,_ brainless harangue ? No doabt his soul ever
-s rises in aid of progressive nigge.rism (so
