I seriously alarmed at the increasing
prospect of an overflow in Red River,
The news from above by the latest
boats down is very discouraging in

as low down as Grand Bayou, and
some Fay the Couslhatta, are now
entirely $ubmnerged. We are also
informed that there is another heavy
rise in upper sedt River, which, if
true, will in all probability, prove
disastrous. We have reason to
believe, however, that many of the
reports which reach us of such ex
traordinary judications of overflow,
are exagerated. We know that there
is some danger to be apprehended ;
an immense quantity of rain has fall

believe that the water will be as high

of quiet manners, ihe is not general

steady habits and sufhicient knowl
Sedge to enter at once intelligently

Sbeen admitted to tihe bar by the Su
Spreme Court in 18(0 or 1861. He
was also in the 2d Louisiana Infan.
try and lost his right arm in the battle
of Mine Run, in Virginia. Ile is in
every respect qualified for the office
he seeks.
Mn. CEO. W. KEARNEY, Candidate
for Recorder, was also in the 2d Regt
La , Infantry, and has lost the use of
an arm, by wounds reccived in bat
tle. His education, gentlemanly
earning and experience as deputy
1 Clerk and Recorder, qualify him for
the position sought.
Then Ict every voter, though loyal
to the government., as it now exists,
yot, not forgetting the glorious though
unfortunate phast and its heroes, come
forward on the 7th day of May next
and cast his vote for the three gal
lant and wounded soldiers of the 2d
La., Infantry, anid thus compensate
them in part for the service rendered,
in "a time that tried men's souls,"I
to the cause once dlear to all of us. I
Renmember that not only their servi- i
ces and their misfortunes merit this r
reward, but their qualifications en
tile them to at least equal considera- I
tion with their opponents-and let
the names of tihe three, be borne up
on your ticket-HAMuLT(,N, for Clerk,
BROWN, for Sheriff and KEARNY, for

The labor question is fnst aidjust
ing itself, and less anilnmosity exists
betwees the blacks and whites than
N ortlhern peolple geinerally suppose.
As an evidlenIce of this lie cites the
fact that the eCorgia Legislatire
passed an act irovidui-, in a few
words, that thle freedmen shall have
the right to coiitraict andl enforce con
tracts, to sue and be sueil, to testi
fy in the courts, to be submiitted to
the same l)lllpunishmlents, for like of
fenses, as whites.
The same statutes apply to blacks
aniid whliitces, and the salme courts take
cognisance of the ofifenlses. No dis
tinction is made on account of race
or color; so that all stand equal Ibe
fore the law. Beyond this, however,
Mr. Stevens asserts that the rpeople
of Ge( rgia desire nothi'ng' so mnIch
as their practical restoration to tie (

to adapt themlselves to the new cm (
