MISTAKE. AtoiUT A IEr.R. --IThe tfpli
made us say last week that a monster bear
weighing about G00 lbs, was shot by an ama
teur hunter from Kentucky, a patron of "hea
vy weights," in a hunt that lately took plice
on the Marangouin, when in fact this .giant
specimen of bruin succumbed to the unerring
aim of our friend C. I). IouncrrrsoN, who lives
in a bear country. Hlunters, like politicians,
don't like to be robbed of their well-earned
laurels.
SAI.UTE I. liN ,nR of TIlE SECEDING
SrTAzs.--On learning last'Saturday of the ar
rival home from Charleston via Virginia, the
evening previous, of our fellow citizen lion.
A. TALBOT, his Democratic friends aidl admi.
rers got out "Black Betsey," and after send
ing eight reverberating blasts (one ftr each
State) up and down thq Fattier of Waters, aIl
ded five more in honor of our own delegates
and the return of the above gentleman.
A. S. G l-.t;ORY, 1t,, ..l if. --It wiil Ise
seen by his card in ant.ther columot that this
gentleman is here on a professional visit.. (n
his arrival, we took occasion of a previous
acquaintance to call at h.s room, and must
acknowledge that we were highly pleated in
feasting our sight upon the various admiiable
productions of his brush, both in landscape
and portrait.painting. It is seldom that a first
class artist visits our town-Mr. (tP.ERo's
stay is limited-and our citiziins shou:d take
advantage of an opportun;ty which may not I
occur again for a long length of time. The
public are invited to call and examine b:s
paintings.
HRausoM, DENTAL t R\oKR.--e have '
bees cown by a friend a beautiful piece of t
deatalerk-two front teeth encased in gold t
-made for him by Dr.'Jesls of this town. t
They me aserted on the section principle- .
feel perfectly easy ee a~eold,,t firm c
and solid. They look weedins w ith
this difference, that they are whlter and rath. I
er better looking than the thpr teeth. I
CILBnERT & AxES' SirAx Ta.st.-We ti
invite the attention of our readers among the a
planting community to the advertisement in
another column of the above Steam - Train, I
which possesses superior advantages and faci.
lities, , perceive, which are expressed in the e
advertisement. "
li"Iu another column is the card of
Gao. L HILL, Esq, Attorney' at Law in Mar
shall, Texas. If any of our reades hould have at
business in the Lone Star State, requiring the
services of a gentleman of his prof
one in whom activity and faithfulness would
be desirable, a long acquaintance authorizest
Ss to guarantee the most perfect satisfaction fr
in any business which Mr. Hus. should under. T
take to perform.
"RAL.Y, DtMOCAUTS I"-Such is the
Ileading of .blue handbill we see stuck up be
around townicalling for a Mass Meeting of re
the Democracy to assemble to-day at Bayou
Goula in the lowecr part of this parish, 'to
approve or condemn the action of the "Seee-.
dse" from the late Charleston Convention,
and to termine what course shall be adopted
in the comnadphridentia contest." These y
are its words, si~, "MiaaLf Democrats," and he
concludes by reastit..aLDeaissl to be
present-whether of yd4OW] lW the pa.
seh, is not stated; if the latter, ue think bat
a more central point for the meeting-. the at del
of government of the parish has alhays',e
coasidered the proper place in such cases- Ins
would have been desirable, if "'fair play and ,
as. iin," were the words. mef
m we think we "smell a mie." If thisle
maeeting had been the result of formal and dit
correct Democratic action, we think that this th:
establishment or journal, as the only reo C:
nized Demoratic organ of the perish, wou
have known something about it I There is, pi
beel4, a regulau ly appointed Executive Con
mitte of this parish, whose business i is to th
attend to calling of Democratic Meetinpgs; wet
have no qestion but that it id Uas mach in the
idark as we ar about the getting e it up. 6
The whole fact about th matter is  -
this, without doubt: The meeting is fortbe

ýý In the majority report of the Committee on
Platform, at the Charleston Convention, the
bIoIN following appeared among the Resoiut;ons,
but was voted down. This was the cause of
8. our delegates and those from the other States
who agreed with them, to leave,'which was
I very gracefully and emphatically done in a
sI hort bet decided declaration on the part of
the lion. A. MoUroN:
" i aolced, That the platform adnpted by the
ean- lenmocratc party at Cincinnati, be alirmued
r w.i th the foliowing explanatots resoilt.ons
"anl Firit, Tihat th' ;overnlmenit of a Territory
iorganizedl by in act of ('ongress, s provii, n
at aril d tenporarv: and during its existrnce all
c liz.ins of the olaitcd States hi ave an equal
rglht to i-tile wilth Iheir prulpeirty in the Te-
ritory. withoutt their rights, etither of person
or property. besing destinyed or imUpaired by
Conreiogresional or Territor.al legislatiun.
Second, That it is the duty of thie Federal
I" Governments, in all its departmentr, to pro
bear tect, when necessary, the-rights of persons
ama and property in the Territories, and wherever
'hea- else its constitutional author.ty extend.
ialce Third, That when the settlers in a Territo
r.y, in lursuance of proper Ihgal authority,
iant ihaving an adequate population, form a State
ring C'onstitution, the right of sovereignty comrn
livre' ences; and being consummated by admission
into the Union, they stand on an equal footing
n* with the people of other States, and the State
ned thius organized ought to be admitted into the
Federal Union, whether the Constitution pro
hibits or recognizes the institution of slavery.
Isv Is there a Louisianian-any one who be
t ar- lieves in the equality of States, or has some
the idea shat pertains to the rights and obliga
Ion. tions of our Giovernment and people-any
Imi. one who loves what is r.cIG because of its
nd- ho!y origin, and detests waosNG as the foulda
ach tion stone of error, corruption and dissoliuton
a't -morally, physically and politically-who
ates can censure our delegates for tile part they
acted after the refusal of the Northern lb ,no
cracy toldmnit in the platform the above clear
11I , and uiqueationable bill of rights, in accor
this lance with the constitution and law..
On Remaining in the Convention after such just
ious principles as contained in the above re-o'iation
just had been voted down, would look something
d in Ike acknowledging their absurdity, or would
ible be yielding to the influence of weaknes-, or
ape to policy for the sake or hope of power.
Irat Perched high above such cowardly or sel.
'"s fish considerations, the desire f,r otllice, and
eke everything that follows the triumph of a great
not pas ty, our delegates looked but to Ite question,
The then and there to be "or not to be" stamped
h:s into the creed of tbe Democratic party-into
the creed of every man a ho favored equal
rights and privileges among the States-and
ave which is plainly and decidedly embraced in
of the above resolution-the question, whether
old the South wa to have the same national pro
rn. tection of property as the North, in all pos
e- sessions of Governmental domain, till they re
rm ceive the seal of separate or State sovereignty
isk by~ e rules as provided in the Constitution.
A- If rwied in the atlirmative, our just rights
otId na beans acceded; and theA traom
North 8. oe from East to West, the Na.j
Ve tional Democracy would have stood together
She upon the glorious platform of the guariateen
in of tse Constitutioa!
in, But we are pained to acknowledge that our
ci- Democratic brethren 6f the North have deem
he ed it prudent, if not right, to veto so clear
and unquestionable a principle as a plai.k of
the platform, as at is already shown to the
of world. Having their faith and their support
ar' fixed upon a man whose past acts, speeches
'we and principles all ran counter to the right of
hi Southern equality in the Territoriesa-or which
ý.4 vored a course of action termed "Squatter
id ObAvereignty" which amounted to the same
" thing, whereby Southerners were debarsed
a from taking their slave property into such
r' Territories-or part'y through fear of the
prejudices those .Gthern delegates thought
might infuence the masses if principles as
tI bold and clear as those laid down in theabove I
>f resolution were embraced in the Democratic I
platfrrm-or (which is moat likely) knowing _
tnat their Sqoatter Sovereign King (Douglas)
would not mount a platform with any atach ii
I plank as the above resolutiqn inserted in it- e
d deemed it proper and advisable, rather than
Syield or sacrifce the man, to bow to the be
hests and hopes of aelfishness, policy and n
i avallabihty, throw iaiple "to the dog," ie
Sand discard the resolution which called for I
equal rights.
t What then was the course proper for the
t delegates of thos States to pursue which bhad
lnsitedupon the above resolation I Principle (I
d regardless of coesequences, demanded they a
ahunld utih. Po.licy might have advised a es

I, It was but a few months back that certain
journals and their backers in this State--who
of sing the same tune, wheel oa the same heel
es and light upon the same foot-took upon
is themselves to proclaim theirs as the only tho
a rough-going States Rights' principles among
of those claiming to be of the Democratic party.
This faction consisted, and still consists, of
e three or four newspapers outof thirty or more
i in this State devoted to the old and regular
Democracy, sustained by about the same pro.
Y portion of followers. We call it a ftcti,,i,
1l because any shoot or branch from a great
Il party aiming at power or popularity by laying
clairp to principles denied to the parent trunk.
or which it is accused of want of courige to
advance,-is nothing less than an attempt to
I overthrow it. The principles thus laid claim
a to by this faction-and this attempt we may
1 say at a new and separate organizatiori of the
it enocratic party--are what may be umrnme'i
utip utd.r t,.- hiead of "extrenie" State or
, Sout!,,o i I Rgits (if any one can explain of
, what they cinsiit) or going fr the t.iinth in
a political ense, "'finrt, last and always." But
g their articles upon this .ljerct always seemed
e considerably "mr.dly" to us; we could'nt ex
e artly tell , after al', wht srt of princeplte
i thAir States" Rlghts pninciiles were. The
old Deiiucrqcy, accordling to their say, never
was. Southera enough fir them-it yielded
e too ntuh'to the No th, both in sentiment and
intrest. Iti tine, this factron to which we al
' lu.e endorsed the Mi.sissippi disunion senti
met.ti--,-'as "down" upon the platform upon
which (;tor. Mlore .nd the balance of the late
hl inocrati,. State t.ckpt was so gloriously
elected--is "down" upon Senator Slidell and
the balance of the leading men of the DIenio.
crltic party, not to mention I)eneocratie jour.
r nals--"down" upon the complexion of the
late State (',nvention, upon its platform and
the principles of the great majority who con,
pu-c l it; it would be singular indeed if it
were not also "downv upon the delegates
a hith said Conveit on sent to Charleston.
Fur ther, so very Southern and sectionali
patriotic in feeling was this a.Moo to which
we allude, that t e of the old Demsocracy were
twitted about our "'sstional Democracy," as
akuowlrdgnv our indi·btedness to; and our
detcrniination of co-operat.on with, Northern 1
Demtocrats--this being the basis of our Nao.
tional Democracy. In fact the old Democracy
and its organs were so rery national in their
I feelings, according to the opinion of the far
tion, that they were derisively termed "the I
Union at any price gentlemen " .
Now, everybody who reads the newspapers
know that these remarks are applicable to the
faction to which we allude, and which would i
disorganize and destroy the party whose name
it dates a.-ume.
SBut now mark the posnition inta which it
has cot itself: From being etlln iaetically
Southeri it has leaped at one jump to the side
of thie No thrn l)emocracy, and in-etedem. I
Snation of the course of our delegates in their I
struggle to maintain the very principles which t
were the boast and pride of thbis New Line t
I)em-ocratic faction ! From being Union menri t

mocracy, its journals and leading men arei
rampant Disouionistt, partieularly our dole t
garte to Charleston, who would paralyze the nI
country an diisolve the DTemocrat c party, v
because of aeir personal hostility to a man it
who has suddenly (here in the conlmtry at tl
least) become the faction's favorite States'
Rights candidate for the 'residency. What it
man do we mean but Douglans And yet, it
was but but a few weeks back, that if any a
one of this New L ne faction had been accused at
of favoring the "Little Giant," it.wouid have ai
been considered nothing less than calumny!
Mark what transpired with reference to the ti
late Parish Conventioripind our remarks in tii
reference to it. Do the gentlemen who op. i N
posed Douglas then, who ('oark!) took upon s
themselves ao broadly to contradict thd "soft
impeachment," and who were o very incen-e

supporters of his, oppose him now I
Why ask we the questionl Who has not
