Dalir or Ex-Gov. Wamxr-.-We yester- al
day reeieved the intelligence of the death of d
Ex.Gov. WAL.EsR who expired at' his resi- ,

lingering illness a
H. M. FavaoT. Esq.-We regret to state
that the Representative of our parish is con
fined to his bed from indisposition. We hope
to be able in a few days to announce his con
valescsce, and the assumption of his legis- f
lative duties.
Com. Yos Enra.--We had the pleasure e
yesterday of fn~.ting our old friend, CoL. Joe. F
E.rrTa of the Ex.Po.aIT, who is on a vist to
Baton Rouge. The Col. looks as hale and
hearty as ever.
Ic.--For some days past the river has
been filled with floating ice.
Mr. Markham of the ferry boat assures us
that the feirry ran against some pieces which
could not have been less than ten feet long, n
and so heavy as to shake the boat violentl3
by the concession. It is somewhat novel to
find ice floating as low down as Baton Rouge.
CoLn WEATHEa R IN MoablL..-Yesterday
says the Alabama Planter, was the most
pleasant day we have had for six weeks., It h
was however, very cold. The fields in the
morning were covered with a hoar frost that
looked like a snow-fall, and all the shallow
pools and wet places were frozen fast.
Youse zLa's Lyrcux.-From the well
kr.own literary character of Mr. BRsuran~,
we may aItbcipate a large audience at the
Christiat Chuts, on Monday evening next
to hear .this geatleman lecture upon a subject
fraught wrihmso much interest to the South
and So qthrn Literature.
MOnaxosMn t; TIlE Honss----On last
Thursday, ia discussing a resolution to invite
the clergymen, to open the proceedings of the
House of of Representatives, (some of whom
are past praying for,) by prayer, Mr. BEECH.
xt waid he supported the resolution, because
it had the sanction of custom, not because he
would be benefitte4 by its aaoption, as he did
not suppose a minister of his church would
ever he invited. Whereupon some member
asked the gentleman what church he was a
member of? Mr. BascuHE replied jocularly,
"the Mormon !" In the same spirit we would
respetflully ark Judge BEECIrEa, if he con
firms to the practice of his Church ?

of their tlecy work we have seen, we have
no hesitation in recommending them to our

Chugl was crowded on Monday evening
last, to hear the lecture of Mr. J.J. JorEs up
on the "~PhCid phyof Hisory." The viewsof

hi the late canwass, the Democratic press
and Democratic 'sators were ilnsparing in a
thair adnmiration of those "gallant WVhigs," I
who forgetful of past differences, united with a
thetAi. for the purpose of defeatin the Amesi- P
can party. Whigs and recreant Know Noth- c
ings. were re'ceived with open arns, and at n
Democratic meetings they were assigned the I
moa' conspicuous places, such asPresident, p
Vice-President, Secretary or orator. On all h
occasions we could read in bemocratic papers n
ail hear from Democriatid speakers the most i
disgustiug fulsome praise of the olle' and r
patriotic WT7higs to compliment whom and by
way of conciliating in the strongholdt of i
Whiggery, the name of Democrat, gave place r
to that of anti-Know Nothing, 'as being less f
liable to call up unpleasant reminiscenses and
aa evidence of adeterminatign tur,make the f
honor and spoils of victory a joint concern. a
During the canvass, according' to Demo- 1
cratic authority, the " Common Sense Epi
demic" raged fearfully, and the Grand High
Priests of Locdfocoism were engaged night c
and day, in the humane task of minisering
consolation and hope to its victims.. Every
man who would say, or allow others to say
for himn, that he had been a iKnot" Nothing
aud'hae litbdrawn ~ron them, was joyfully
paraded in 1)Deocratic papers and placed up- t
on tie calender of politicafsaints, as worthy
all honor and an equal share in the general
distribution'in the "good time comning." It
was really aecting to oiserve how cheerfully 1
the legitimate son of Locofocoism embraced,
as a brother, the orphan children of Whlg
gery, and how willing he was to allow the
tatted calf be killed upon the. return of hi
prodigal brother 1
Hypocritical as was all this, it was not
without its effect. Seduced by the false pro
fessions of kindness on the part of the Dem
ocratic party, and prompted by a hope of an
equal share in the spoils, thousands of hungry
patriats suddenly discovered that our civil
and religious .iberties were attacked by the
native born Americans, and that the Demo
cratic party was the Ark of Safety-hence
at the eleventh hour, in the heat of the bat
tle, the foreign ranks were reinforced and
they gained the victory; but mark the sequel
On last Monday it appears that among those
who asked to share in the spoils. were a
number of old line Whigs and ex-Know Noth
ings, who with proper zeal urged their clain s,
but the old Democrats murmured, saying.
"these last have wrought lut one hoursi and
"we have borne the burden and the heat of
the day," and a voice went forth from King
Caucus, which reversed the teaching of the
t good man in the parable and they that were
hired about the eleventh hour. received noth
t ing whereat there is loud murmuring, much
dissatisfaction anrt sore disappointment.
Without stopping to discuss the justice of
the course pursued by ou. Democratic ad
I versaries, we cannot refrain from profiting
by the opportunity `t affords of giving pub
licity to a lesson which ought to be learned.
It is undeniable, but that for Whig support
the Democratic party would hate encoun
tered a Waterloo defeat in the late election
yet the Democratic party ;by the course pur
sued as before stated, have proclaimed that they
are esttited to nothing at their hands.
We confess that we have no sympathy
with those who opposed us in the late cam
paign, and can scarcely refrain from express
ing our satisthetion at the disappointment of
the defeated Whigs and ex-Know Nothings
who assumed the name of True r4,nmricunu.
P and supported ihe Democratic ticket. Yet
we trust that the ingratitnyde of the I)emo
r crats towardl some of ttheir most actve efl
L ficient allies in the late canvass, will ., i~ c
, without its effect in opening the eyes ot tomue
I whose past political life proves that tL.e
have no feeling in common with the Demo
cratie party with whom they lately acted.
While the American party like Geh.. Tay
lor, has a"o friends to reward and no enemies
to punish" it is ever willing to receive in
full fellowshipthose who will sustain its prin
ciplesand will never countenance any one,
who opposes us in carrying out the sound
doctrine that Americans shall rule America,
unassisted by foreign influence.

New Orleans Jualetiu of the 23d inst., that
some members of the `Spartan Band," as
some of the Democratic presses grandilo

sition to back out and renounce their alle
giance to King Caucus. We learn froruatele
graphic dispatch from Washington to the Cha.

John S. Millson, of Virginia, declined voting
for Richardson, conceiving himself not bound

stated that he would give his vote hereafter
where it would be most effectually felt.

blushing effrontry,in attuempting tou bolster

its iniquitous leaders on the uLcnomplauinc
people 3vho'erpetuate them in power.
We are proud to acknowledge our youth
in politics, if experielnce confers on the aged,
nothing more than has been acquired by our
folly initiated contemporary in the Caiital
hardihood and recklessness. It is a matter
for us to boast of, that our judgment and con
science has pever been chained and directed
by party preference or party ukase, and when
we so far loose our self respect as to sanction
what we know to be wrong, we -vill then
consent to have our case judged and te'nitence
pronounced by the editor of the Baton Rouge
Aidvocrite. ,But until then, we trust to be par
doned for retufing attention to the gratuitous
advice of that or any other censor.
In regard to what we asserted concerning
the accounts of the last State Printer, we
still adhere to; but it was not so miuch the
individual as the sy'strm to w whim we had
reference-not so, much the official under the
law, as the law itsef!i--which the Acdvocate I
admits to be susceptible of the broadest con
struction. We rciierate what we beftire
stated, that the p,.blic printing can be done
at nearly one-third less than the price paid
by the State to the last contractor to exeacte
it; and our assertion is based and! sustained
entirely on our own knowledge of the cost oi
printing, and which we still a:lhere t. In
confirnmation of this assertion. we now have
before us, a circular from the,.Adc:ccate which
proposes to reduce the expenses of the work
to nearly the ligure specified: still there is
no such thing as uinqiualified "Deumocratic,

What we want is an inquiry into the mat

That New Orleans is infested wh!h , rang
of eraceless and unprincipled scoundr,'ls who
stab ill the dark: who sllng-shot men from
behind, and who infest the streets (, that
miserally goverr ed city, renderiing it nnsife
to walk its streets even at uooird v. the dai
ly report of the city papers amply testify.
The ingernity exhibited by our diercratic
friends to assOicate thiese vi :ains wi'tth the
American party, and the tenacity with which
they cling to the viiie calumn:.:. is nworthy of
ai better ranso.

The fact of attempting to a' ribute an im

or s irs Mas ,risser.-r-Senator Brown. ofMis
sissippi, presented the following memorial to
the U. S. Senate, on the 7th inst:
From John A. Ragan, setting forth that he
had discovered a plan to prevent the over
flowing oftlhe Misissippi river and to reclaim
inandated lauds; anti asking a grant of every
alternate section he may so reclaim, in order
to enable him to carry hisplan into execution.
The menrorialist declares his plan entirely
practicable and comparatively, cheap, and
says it can be completed in three years.
The memorialist proposes to turrn the su
perfluons watirs of the Mississippi river into
Hudson's Bay and the Atlantic ocean through
a canal of one mile to the head of the great
Assiniboin river, in Minnesota Territory,
which canal, he asserts, will open steam na
vigation from thbs Atlantic almostrr to the
South west Pass of the Rocky Mourntaine.and
from Hudson's Bay to New Orleans. He al
so proposes; by a thority from Texas, to turn
the superfuous waters of Red river into the
Gulf of Mexico through very short canals-to
the head of the Sabine and Trinity rivers,
which canals, he says, will open steam navi.
gation Irotl the Gulf of Mexico to the gold
regions of Santa Fe.

REiTrRE.CHuaEliTr.--AS an evidence, oathe
part of the present legislature; to curtail the
enormous xpeuses attendiseg upon the annual
session of this body, we may notice the fact,
that the salary-oftbheaofice of WarrantClerk

dollars per day, instead of ten, as heretofore
Indeed as was truely- remarked indebat4on
this subject; there is no provision for sueh
an ofilce it the -General Assembly, and as it
is a mere sinecure it was evidently createdtas
others have been, to reward-partisans for the
services of a season. The duty of the War.
rant Clerk-all told, is,to go from- the State
House to the Bankaasd obtain theperdiem. of
the membersto savethemwthisinmmen.etrouble.
Another movement in ther right, direction, fbr
retrenchment, is the appointment-of a comne
mittee to enquire into the expenditure for
state Priating and other matters -coimeated
with this interesting branch of law-making.
The House has not yet elected the fifth
wheel sinecure office of Reportee,anid it is to
be presumed from the disposition manifested
to curtail eXpeases, thatthio-icer wAilibe'dist
pensed with.' There is not a mermber sfihe
