L Since the time newspltrers were first ostb
liabed, the rule of cu.tom, if not the role of
law itself, acknowledges and grants the right
of a man to defed himself in a pullic news
paper, over b as own signature and ntpin his
owa respoo'ibility, even t. the defamation of
the character of another, and to the ent!re
ot exoneration from ali blame andtl fam all ree
po.nsibility in the matter of the editor or pub
Lisher himself. This has been the lsw of so.
.th eiety, if not the law of the cou)rt, ftr ages.
nal When, therefore, lonk'n nn'y to the gooi
of society, and in oppocition to our pecuniary
interests, we resolved tII discontinroe the pre.
ay ltice of insertng personal card, of a defanme
m- tory character, we nenrt ezxactly what we
ssal: but we dia not caleulaate th" di'flcu t
--of confronting the ol'Inion-s of imen whon
behleve that the editor of a pol!,': n'ewipepr
ought not to refuse thts right to the citzl.r-
of combattung the argutments and solicitt one
of influential parties sail tther frornIs, rn1l
i the friends and powerf(u supp.rtcrs. perhaps,
of the paper itself.
When, therefore, the card of Mr. Dupny
was handed us, we at once seaizid the dell
rate position in alicn we were placed; bat
the extreme mildness of his remarks, seeming
balt a simple explanation, (-ave what mnight
have been offensire ,n a bare allusion) we
at once assented tr, its publication. But in
doing so, after the avowal made by us, we
desire distinctly to be ,nderstood. that we
were prompted by no feel:ngs of part;ality on
.o' side, nor influenced by those of prejud;ie
on the other. And having admitted one rile,
we were bound to admit tlh, other, which
will be seen in this day's paper.
We are no Reformer. To he such reqI:res
a man of sterner mind and len+ feehlng than
we posses.. It is surprising then that we
should have thought of eff-cting so great a
reform as the one eonteml'ated, by the mere
'- dash of a pen l Rht had we d'n.e at first
what we not do, we wouhi have done the beit
r- to effect our purpoise. If a portion of the
for community corntnd for tl.e right of the citt
Sen to dekrd himt;u f through t'.e ntewspaper,
none can deny our aighut to ( harge for it wlhat
J. we think proper, which chlarge will be seen
R. at the head of the tiet column of this page,
which will dosabti'es have the tendency to
abrtviate if not abolish the practice.
uC i WrlarrrR . ('roets, &c.-We regret that

but the b!essed rain can wash away. Between
i. our teeth, in our eyes, and up our nostlri,
is du.st, dust ! Such a time has an affect upon 1
- the spirits of us al'. But our auffrings in
town for want of rain, are ae nothing com
in pared to those of our planters, who are reaiy
a the natural bankers of us all, and when any. i
thing of this character occurs to rn:n or in- º
:- jure their crops, and they fail in their usual '
income, the whole enmmunity fraeels the pecu
niary shock. It is then with feelings of real I
d condolence for the plnterseon the part of the
t community that we learn their cane is now
t being greatly injured for the want of rain.-
That extent of injury may be imagined ihe.n
we state that we were informed that, in a ds
trict in our parish which generally makes a
good crops in the worst of times, several of it
me oer planters wall be thankful this year if they p
save enough or rais enough cane for seed a
at next year! That there will be a short crop "r
is this parish this year, of sugar, is the Suet t r
favorable, from what we have ascertained
Sthat Ua be said aboot it.

to front Franklin, St. Mary's parish, thus a'!udes
re to the speech of Mr,. Snete at that pltice:
,l Bitt the most amusing dis.play of Mr.
SSoule was the "Farce of $aving the Ur;i
I ,n," in his new rule of th,:"Uniun-Shrie'
ker." It seemed to str;ke him as ra
thor too ridiculous a part of him to play i
t-.fore his audience hi-re, who had heard
him ton i 52, in the nr;Ller character of t
t the dctnd.er of the equality of the States

11 change of dress, or rather, in a semei
i seriouts tone denrying that he had chang- 1
ed his'dress at all, he labored in the
I most approved manner on the stage to I
i pump up tears for the endangered Union.
It was funny to be sure. Poor Sould, I
yon will never be able to play well the a
t part of the Uition Shrieker-the joke is t
too broad to take well in Louisiana.
SThe thing partakes too much of low ,
comedy for an actor of your tragicj,

Scal than to hear Pierre Sould hurling his ,
