' - --- -'pse P.ht. mnstead of temperately discussing the po litical questions which interest the people, the Times and Picaynne are engaged throwing stones at each; and each in hunting pedi _rrees for the other. The proprietor of the Thi7sr is accused of having been "a hewer of woodd and a drawer ar water, and a maker of barrels and hogsheads in the days of "mild aug syne.R 'Twas a grievous crime thus to steal into the confidence of a too confiding people wearin.g a pedigree that did not be long to him; but griavously has the Timet man sufered for it. When he came among tts, and by his efforts raised himself to a po sition well calculated to win respect and per haps fame, to see his idol thrown from its pedestal and broken, ani to feel that his ambitious aspirations have neon in vain, be cause an enemy has said his lienage is impure because the blood of a mechanic, courses through his veins and makes him unclean. Perhaps he made good barrels and hoghe.dads; if he did, the crime is robbed of a shade of its blackness, but of its heniousness none can doubt, and of its deserving of punishment, none deny. The Tiues by way of defense, calls the editor of the 'peoples paper' "the young editor from the country." The Chief editor of the PickacNy e did certainly once edit a country news paper, a crime equal in hue to that of making barrels for a livelihood, in the estimation of the Times man, and if the people's paper man, once stooped to drive bulls in the Attakapas country, he. probably was iguorant that he was transgressing the law. The people's paper man is accused of quot i ecripture, too. We would like to ase the n's catalogue of or ruies; they would h a curiosity to an editor from the first op the list we pre ts.

Lad in order to facilitate the movement, as ird party has been, with great psia and broungt into existene~ to sfy the " u with the strange device" -"reform"- en. graved upon its mysteriom tolds. What the sineesm of this "third party" movement will be, cannot, perhaps, be foretold with any de gree of certainty. Its mission-that is, its o.tedsible mission-is a noble one, and worthy the support of all good men. But sinee even the party of whisk WQameth is the acknowl edged leader, is gathering recruits with the samedesige.aod while the "bolters" led by Carter join in thegeaeral cry of reform, we cannot seethe neesity of the " third party." Where are its supporters to come from f We do not wish to throw cold water on any movement looking to reform, for we know reform is sadly needed; that our body politic is covered with putrid, festering sores from soleto eown; that every stinking cere-pool within and without the State has been sifted, and the dregs of corruption have been foist upon us to steal and eat up the little left by spoilers that swarmed over our fair la in the late war, like the plagues in Egypt and left is desolate and blackened. If all parties are, as they pretend, in a "melting mood," and desire reform, why isn't the work com eneed? If they are re pentant, why don't yhey give some evidence of it b1 wr ins_ of( words? If tbW are couverts heLre l --i-.r Wlif- is1o hinder their baptis* ) When we see all these radical changes we will begin to have faith in their hled proteesions, but not till then. We do not question the sincerity of the " third party," that undertakes to make the rough places smooth and the crooked straight, and purge all the State, parish and municipal offices of fraud and corruption, and after sweeping, and a season of purifice tion, to fill those offices with honest men; men of capacity, men enjoying the confi dence of the people and chosen by the people. We say we do not doubt the sincerity of this party, but it requires faith, of the sort that moves mountains, to believe that from a little ward meeting could spring up a po litical patty of such inlnence as to bring about the grand result it has essayed to pro duce. Its efforts to roll away the stone that has been crushing aus so long, reminds us of the efforts of the frog to swell to the size of the ox. We hope, however, that 'the same dire consequences may not follow. As for tshe promises of reform by Warmoth and his party, we think they are .entitled to about as much credit as would his Satanic Majesty, were he to come up from the bot tomless depths, where he and his legions dwell, and with hypocritical tears in his eyes, and with countenance long drawn, sanctimonious and *lemn, promise faithful allegiance to the Meet High, if.released from the terrible damnation to which he and his angels of darkness had for so many thousand years been condemned, sad permitted to dwell where he onceaang pans around the throne, and whence he was hurled by Michael and Gabriel. Satan would only sue (or favor be cause he might think that in a second en counater with the powers of Heaven, he would be more successful, and with these "' prom ising " leaders of the Radical party they feel that there is nothing left to steal, and that if they come with repentant tears in their eyes, sorry for their past transgressions (but more serlously grieved because there is nothing -sernemy, mea fewmg mrmarui anegmoes to the new reform movement, that the people will not let them suffer and fill their bellies with husks, but will bid them come and be clothed in purple and fine linen, and partake of the fatted calf with those that went not astray. But will any sensible man have any faith in such professions of men :who have beoeme rich by prostitating the offiees they hold? No! HIav8 no dealings with them. They only make these hollow promises of reform in order to deceive you.

But his Excellency uotwitnstauding the crimes unrepented of which blacken and tarnish his past career, and whilst he clutches, and scarce attempts to conceal the spoil he has wrested from this people, still has the daring effront ery to ask us to pin our faith to his skirts; to tell us to join him in the cry of reform; "to turn the other cheek;" to give him our cloak also; and instead of going with him one mile to "go twain," and be grateful that he demands so little. THB OLD BTORY. SATAN REUIKING SIN. In a two column editorial the sneaking cur who edits that lying, incendiary sheet, known (to only a few) as the Uttakapas lRegister, howls over the imaginary crimes of the good people Sof .a. lin, in lannuuer iikth e , iering of an umo.br tf1 tnedh .Fi nga' a madman. True to the instincts of a carpet bagger, this lying scoundrel vilifies all of the honest, and respectable people in that section and implicates each and every one of them in the killing of his and Satarn's brothers in iniquity, Pope and Chase. He speaks with "fond rapture," of the cowhiding he received at St. Landry, and knowing that the cowhide was wielded by an honest hand, and an enemy to carpet-baggery, Radicalism, hell, and cor ruption, he wishes to keep the stripes upon his back before the eyes of his hell-born brethren as a fondly cherished relic and proots of his devotion to the cause of Satan and his kinsman, H. C. Warmoth, and as one of his strongest claims to the patronage of the Radical party. (Ho may get another recommendation from St. Mary's parish if he continues in the course that he is now pur suing. As to his qualifications for office, he can perhaps, next to his master, H. C., show as dark a record as any other villain in that Radical "cess-pool of iniquity,' called the legislature, and can prove to his brethren that he has broken every commandement save the one which says, "thou shalt not kill." Oh. no ! this young man will never be ac cased of killing anybody; he will submit to a great deal before he will kill anybody, (L e. cowhiding.) He is opposed to it, for two reasons; first, because he knows he is an ar rant coward, and, second, because he knows he deserves killing himself. We don't think he is opposed to it on principle. If he ever kills anybody, it will be a cripple or an old1 woman, under the cover of darkness, and with the assurance that he will be protected by Yankee bayonets. He refers to the chastisement received by Jack Moore, the nigger member of the legis lature from St. Mary, was caught in the act ofstealing. J ing from the "Legislater," and in," but not being as much ot H. C., or the editor of the lying he is sup ported, he got bi I sniveller, "by se oflice." What a the editor of the believes his best "gone back on hi Tbis prince of carpe thieves liars this man, in comparison with whom the vilest wreteh ever consigned to the bottomless pits of hell, would be a saint, calls the Bºx.xnr the Black Flag. Aye, it has been a black flag to Radicalism, "lo, these many years," and, God willing, it shall continue to be so. Though this jail-bird, this editor of hell's organ, this representative of "hell's choicest corruptions," instead of the best people in the State, may, from his stronghold in New Orleans, pen such base, lying articles as that which appears under the head of "Innocent Nonsense," he must not " lay the flattering unction to his heart," that he will escape tse awful retribution which await. him. He must not think that beounse our people have borne his insults with the patience of Job, thatit will endure always The time will come, if it has not alrelly arrived when it will not be safe for him to show his face among the people he pretends to represent. Down deep in the the hearts of our people there is a feeling ,of wrong sustained at the hands of these heartless wretches which was but a spark at first; but this seoundrel has been constantly adding fel to the fire within, and smne day it will burst forth is all its fary, and if it does come to that, we pray that he sad all of his brethren, the devil's imps, io the Stite, amy be male to feel the ven geance of a wronged and down-trodden people-when they will be made to regret that they did net sooner take up their earpet-bags and hie them to their homes in Yankeedom. Bat what can we expect from men of that stripe. It would be as absurd to leek for anything good in SAn asin them. They are, like all other carpet-baggers, villains from cadle, and, to use the language of t Le litar(Mo.) 5sepiras, we W 8tbe depths below the lowest diptha ia hell's Yhbbtlg eludoe n of slimiest rottenness for forty asilion yeses; elaw out, one by one, with Satan's steel-pointed digits, every par isle of festeringflth ia the great oat-hams pitsof the lurid city of Pandemonium; ash forever for lost putrid souls in the yawning abyes of despair, with barbed hooks and a patent twist from the devil's red-hot talil," and we could not "fish up" another War moth or another egister man.

The iaethusa New Orleans correspondent of the Cincinnati Osaems eia perpetates the fol lowing, whlablgood, whaever may be facts. The truth s that Mr. Rice, in common with other New Orleans managers, extended the usual oourteeis to the Grand Duke, which invitation was accepted with unusual prompt ness, and the distinguished guest, with his sanite, rode six miles to Jefferson City to at tend an American circus. Alexis was accom panied by the Russian Admiral, the Russian Consul, Gov. Warmoth, and Gen. Custer and lady, the General attending, as he stated, to see the man who years ago gave him his first experience in acircus. The Grand Duke was highly pleased, particularly with the wonder ful exhibition of trained horses, and joined heartily in the enthusiasm which greeted every act. It is worthy of mention that his Imperial Highness sat through the entire pro gramme, a fact which did not occur at any other place of amusement in the Crescent City. At the close he requested an introduc tion to Mr. Rice, and in the course of conver sation, remarked that it was the first Ameri can circus he had visited, and the only areuic entertainment he ever attended where he was not bored. Later he sent an invitation for Mr. Rice to dine with him at the St. Charles' Hotel, and a press of business alone pre vented its acceptance. But here Jenkins' version of the story : There isa good story told here in regard to - tle ieee of strategyperformed by the euvel'r- aqxiau to have an interviewf the Duke, and per sonally invite him to attend the "Great and Only Paris Pavilion," came one of his strate gic moves on the guards at the door of His Highness' reception rooms. Dan, with his noted enterprise, by mine called under the head of "cheek and Lrass," sent his card up to the Duke's room, with instructions to the waiter to "hand that to Aleck." Of course the card was handed in, and an answer re turned that the Grand Duke Alexis was indis posed and could hold no public levee. Dan said nothing more at the time, but finally, after smiling behind several tumblers, con cluded to make another eflirt. So, with the same independence, and giving the wink to the hotel people, and the waiter some small change, word was sent to Admiral Poisset that there was a countryman in distress anxious to see him. Imagine every one's surprise when the answer came to admit him. Dan immediately entered, and began with one of his droll stories, stating that he was a countryman, having farmed in Pennsylvania when a young man, and that he felt distressed to think His Imperial Highness had not at tended the Paris Pavilion, of which he was proprietor and clown. Dan's story was taken i good humoredly, and some acquaintances present introduced him to Alexis. He then tendered him'admmssion to the pavilion, which was accepted, and to-morrow set as the day to visit it. There will undoubtedly be a! great rush there, and Dan's receipts will he large.
