A VIsrroR.-Yesterday, white sealted in our sanctum inhaling the fragrance of a de licious havana, our extremely pious and well beloved friend, JeaNNINu of the Iberville Gu:cite, popped in upon us without a mo ment's warning. The Major was as usual in a good flow of spirits, and his cheerful smiling face satisfied us that he was " sound in wind and limb." And long may you re main so, friend J., for 'tis not often we find a brother quill-driver, ornamnenting the profes sion with the same fearle:!sness and straight forward behaviour as yout do. What's the price of Drugs ! Tna NEW LATONA.-Tlhls favorite steamer still makes her regular trips, arriving at Bat on Rouge on Thursdays and Saturdays, and we are happy to see that her popular officers receive-more than a full share of public pat ronage. Travel once with Capt.Gross and Henry Kerr and you will always select the Latona as a medium of travel. Inferior to none, both in point of substantial accommoda tion and polite uncringing attention on the part of her officers. 1=They have funny scenes sometimes in the precincts of that old edifice, the Baton Rouge Court house. Thursday last the amia ble Bob White, Esq., was tried by a jury of his countrymen, and on their honorable acquital of him, the following little conver sation took place : Said the Foreman-"We find the the C1l. not guilty!" Upon which glad tidings, the Col. responded-"good as -grass!" What the Judge said we will not repeat but suffice it to say, the Col. spent the next four hours in sol itary musings within the square walls of that sanctuary of the afflicted, the Parish Jail. DrETISNrY.-We paid a visit on yesterday to the rooms of Dr. J. A. TROCSDALE, Sur geon Dentist, and wereshown some peices of dental plate work, which for ingenuity, solid ity of construction, and beautiful finish we think cannot be surpassed in our State. One peice of work in particular, composing near ly a full upper set of teeth, attracted our at tentionI from i~l extreme simplicity and the manner in which it fitted the mouth -being held by an air-chamber. Judging from the numerous specimens we saw fin ished and finishing, we think the Dr. is reap ing the reward of his skill and ingenuity. To any of our West Baton Rouge friends re quiring dental operations to beperformed, we cordially recommend Dr. Trousdale to their attention, as his workmanship is of a superi or order-his charges moderate and he guar. anties satisfaction in all cases. 0 -The American Party of Baton Rouge have nominated the following ticket for city officers, Election to take placein April next.

With an exultant heart and nerves which thrill in common with those of every true American throughout the Union at the good tidings that MILLARD FI.uaMocE is our chosen standard bearer-we hoist his pure and un polluted name at our mast head, resolved to urge his claims and battle to maintain his cause-our own-and the cause of every true American, until the people gather in their might and by their ballots reclaim our coun try from misrule, and place a IlAN at the helm of the battered and plundered old Ship of State, who once before guided her crer the s urken rocks that ei.langered her progress, and brought her into the wide ope I sea of safety. "The darkest hour is always just be flre day"-and in the gloom of defeat, when the murky cloud ot despair had closed and settled upon our people. one star still hovered over the horizon, cheering the faint-hearted andl encouraging those who saw no means of disentangling our Union from the many for eign and domestic troubles into which it had been plunged by the reckless hand of Pierce and his crew-but in the person qf him who knew no North nor South, but whose heart beat for the Union.

PnHIr.n.LPrTrA .Feb. ~5.-The National American Convention. now sitting here. agreed this morning to proceed to the nomi nation of Presidential candidates. Consider able exciteme nt, however, subsequently arose. and the consequence of the differences and discussions which were elicited was that the delegates from Connecticut. Massachn seats, Rhode Island. Ohio, lllinois' Iowa and Pennsylvania withdrew from the Conven The Convention nevertheless continued in session, and it became quite manilest that it the nominations were not postponed, Miliard Fillmore wonld be nominated for President. andl Andrew Jackson Donaldson, Vice Presi dent. In the afternoon the Convention accord ingly again proceeded with the business of making the nomination, and, as was expected Fillmoreand Donelson were triumphantly and enthusiastically declared the Presiden tial candidates of the Am es ican party. The vote stood : For President-Fillmore. 175; Law, 24: Davis, 10: Husted, 3; Radner, 14 ; McLean 13; Stocton 3. For Vice President-Don l]son, 181; Ray ner, 12; Smith, of Alaban.a S ; scattering 9 Mr. Donaldson made a very eloquent speech. in which he warmly advocated and illustrated the American cause. He said that he owned a hundred slaves, and loved the constitutions of his country, whether North or South , East or West. Several others de livered addresses, after which the Conven tion adjourned sine die. Tnu CLAY MoUMENTr.-We are gratified to see says the N. O. Bulletin, that the Clay Monument Association are determined to fril I11 the pledge solemnly and formally made by them some years since to erect a monument to the greatest orator and statesman of modern days. No patriotic citizen whoa appreciates pubLic and private virtue, and forms a dte estimate ot the imperishable services of the illustrious CLAY, will hold back from his share in the great work of perpetuating his name by a statue which will bh the gloryand honor of New Orleans. Convi lIoss--The American Almanac for the N. Y. Journal of Commerce, contains a statement collected from the returns of the clerks of the courts, under the head of crime from which it appears that of the 14,988 con victions had before the courts of the United States. from 1841 to 1854 inclusive--a period ot fourteen years-9548 were natives of. the United States, and 5450 foreigners. As the native population, except slaves, in 1840 was 17,957,184. while the foreign population was 2,241.648, it follows that the same ratio of con victions among the former, as took place among the latter, would give 48,600 instead of 9,348; or 4j times as many as actually oc curred. In other words, the number of con vietioms among foreigners was 4t times as among native A naericans. in proportion to the .w.lst, s : lass.' The Concerts. During the past week the good citizens of Baton Rouge have been favored with two concerts ; one on Tuesday last by the ladies of St. James Church,and the other on Thurs day night last, for the benefit of Mr. Tar.nxx the blind pianist. The concert of Tuesday was creditable to the ladies of that church, and shows Mith what perseverance the fair sex will labor when. they undertake anything. The music, both Vocal and instrumental, was in extreme good taste, and judging by the ap plause bestowed upon the performers, was highly appreciated by the audience. Unfor tunately the inclemency of the weather was such as to prevent many from attending, and we think had the concert been postponed until the following night, the Hall would have i been crowded to its utmost capacity. On this occasion the Glee Club didt well, but a little more practice would have much im proved their singing. The " Sexton '! by the Admiral, and the " Norah Bray " of Mr. R H-, created quite a sensation. The per formances concluded at an early hour and the audience retired well pleased with their eve inng's entertainment. 'The concert of Thursday evening by l'rof T'rrux, was not as well attended as we think it ought to have been. Tie Professor is an accomplished musician an!d his perirman;e, I upon the piano was highly applauded. The quickness aind delicacy of his tu,tch is surpri ing, as lhe has been blind sirnce he was teti years of age; yet he seems to lind the keys of the instrument with the samie facility as ift possessed of sight. We nrderstand he r·ni templates giving another concert shortv. when we hope he may have a larcer audience -and thlse of our triends who il.edl toi it ness his first performance would be doubly repaid by hearing his executn ion upon the piano, besides contributing to the relief of the afflicted. For the remainder of the affair we carriit say much, as we believe there never was anl audience so bored with dialboical attempt. at singing as that which eilured the atllictions of' Thursday right. Excepting the solos of Messrs. "lMasur., MAIrRKx.u, and Ir: nDeesRn., the balance were deficient inl evervthir".. WeV vainly tried to reconcile the beautiies of " Sally Shilly-Shally,:: atwl Smna,r"ne my last cigar, with the dying groans of t!lly Dale and the last expiring kick of a " Young mani who had to oirin the tempjranerr societ--ri too-tol-de-rol-da,7' but all to no pu rlo.. We couldrttt discover the,', '. *dy, which was probably omitted in the hurry; so we had to imnainm it. The aiuience seemed hirh"l, de lighted when the affair was ox er, and twe were for one. While ripon this subject. it seeti to us that a better place for rrconcerts roudi he , l ,tod Baton Rouge than the Hani of th:e House, as its size rrutiers it almorst irmprpsible for the loudest voice to fill. and its pe, rliar con struction renders it entirelyv unfit for eitther vocal or instrumental mtu.sir.

The American party" invites the attention of their fellow citizens to the recent acts of the Anti-American mongrel-D,:nmocracy of the State Legislature. The American Party view the removal of Messrs. Burke, Michel and Burthe. from their seats in the Senate. and the substitution ,f Messrs. Hyams. St. Paul and Withersin their places as a violation of the Constitution and laws of the State, a clear audacious and un principled overthrow of the principle of pop ular representation, The removal of these men were effected by the illegal admission of depositions taken by the contestants ex-parLe before Judge Rey nolds, without authority of law. Judg s Kennedy and Cotton had been applied to by the contestants to take testimony in their case under the Act of 1814 relative to elec tions. Those Judges declared severally, that the law had been expressly repealed by the Act of 1855 relative to elections, and that the testimony could not be legally taken. Judge Augustin had made a similar decision upon an application to him, and refused to give his official sanction to a proceedure substantially torbidden by the repealing law. Judge Rey nolds was more pliant-he took the testimo ny. It was taken ex-parte-the returned members not participating in it, but protes ting against it, The testimony consists of deposition pre pared in advance by Messrs. Hyams & Co., and printed. The facile witnesses had noth ing to do but to put their names to the for mula, and to swear lip to the anti-American standard of proof. In the absence of usual safeguards for the truth of testimony, two dozen persons might, by the fraudulent use of the names of others have subscribed all the depositions, without much danger of de tection. But any number of witnesses no doubt were at the command of the party con testants. Under similar circumstances, an army of witnesess can always be had by the party after an election, to effect by fraud or management, as it is called, what cannot be carried by law. This testimony thus taken undera repealed law, was admitted by a majority of the com mittee of the Senate to whom the case of the election was referred, and was reported to the Senate. The Senate received the partial re port and refused to allow the sitting members the right to send for persons and papers, to rebut the testimony of the contestants. The repealed act of 1814. which was ille gally admitted to give lile to the printed de positions, provided that th: sittismembers should be confirmed in their seat . C that the election should be sent back oo the people. This was the only alternative under the -law of 1814. But the idea of sending the parties to the people, although suggested by the re. pealed act, was not p tid'to influence the minds of the majoriy. Predetermined and reckless they removed the sitting members, and placed the contestants in their stead. The will of the pople as expressed at the polls, was set aside, tfbr. ot the will, but the paper manufactured votes of a self-declared ntimidated host of mean, not one-fourth of whom could probably be now fobund in New Orleans. The fraud on the popular will of New Or leans was perpetrated in the House of Rep resentatives with still greater aunacity and contempt for the (Cnstitution and the law. No evidence was taken in relation to the contested seats. The ea tIle testimony ta ken under a repealed law, in a case between parties before the Senate, was by an easy cdisregard of law and of justice, applied to the cases before the lloure. The right to be heard, to oiler evidence, and to delend their own claims andl the rights of the people, was practically refr-ed the sitting members. A pretence of violence in the city was made a justification of the denial of all right anrid jus tire an the Legislature, and a tyrannical l)em ocratic anti-? rierica.i majority dislosied of seats as of their own property. The Armeri can Representative., elected and returned to the House. were deprived of their seats and I)enmocratic favorites substituted for them.

Ight to act. to acui that the evide:ce didt not support the vc:rtict. I''he address speaks of 1300 votes as de itrcc-ed, and says that the whole population of: \ew Orleans bears testimony to the fact. The American party while denouncing and reprobating all violence and illegal conduct deem it proper to say that the whole popu Sltion does not bear any such testimony. 'That ifarty were contrent to leave that mat ter to the decision of the jury t,, whom it pro!erly belonget. T.he action ot the Legis:ature is a had pre celent. In times of party excitement, it ,will lead to injustice and oppression. The address was passed masifeatly at the instigation of the Governor, and it must be regarded as a party act to punish an eneniy and reward a friend. The nomination of Mr. Bell aggravates the injustice of the removal. The citizens of New Orleans have not forgotten that Mr. Bell, many years ago while enjoying an office of profit under the General Government, re tained through party support. a seat in the State Senate, for the purpose of voting in vi olation of the Constitution for an U. S. Sen ator. The American party perceive in the pro ject of a Registry Act, introduced into the Senate by Mr. hyams, of New Orleans, an insidious effort utnder pretext of complying with a requisition of the Constitution, to leave a wide door open for frauds upon the elective franchise. The project is a mockery intended to delude the confiding and un wary. The object or the Registry Act is to pro tect the elective Jranchise against fraud by requiring the registration in legal formr of the names of all qualified voters. The propo. sition of Mr. l1yams is to admit to registra ti-n the name of any person who will swear that he is a naturalized citizen and. has lost his naturalization papers, or that the papers have been destroyed, and who will give any plausible account of the loss on destruction of them. This proposition removes the best proof of the right of the natuialized citizen, and the only safeguard against the frauds of the unnaturalized alien, viz: The production of the naturalization papers. Nor would the exaction of this proof impose any hardship upon the real voter. Communication with the different parts of the Union is easy, rapid and certain There will be ample time before any election for such comm. nication. Ev ery citizen who duly appreciates his right, will take care to secure it. The project is further objectionable to the American party because it proves a partizan appointment of 'the Register and increases Executive patronage. It provides a large salary for an Executive favorite, and takes away from the people their just voice in the selection of art officer to whom a duty-affect ing their dearest uights is confided. This ob. ection is strengthened by the hostile attitude which the Governor has assumed towards the American party, and by the maiignhnt and unfounded denunciations in which he has indulged against their objects, motives and conduct. With this exposition, the American party of New Orleans feel it their duty to denounce and they do now pblie de ce course pursued by the Legislature uas the stitutioral. unjuot and t- ranni -cal adto claim, as they do now publicly propnrdo charges made against them by G 'o Wick. liffe in his message, unfoundeda " lelk. ous.

The remedy consists in a revolution, and a new declaration of independence, to be sigp. ed by every farmer in the Union. Let there be formed, without delay. anAg. riultural Society in every County in ach State. arid State Society, composed of dele gates from the County Societies when these are formed, let there be a general asesably, composed of delegates from each State sea ety. Let the general assembly enact laws. to govern each and all, and fix a standard permanent value on each staple production; tie value to be reasonable, and at the same t!ne remunerative. For instance, wheat 1.!',; per bushel; corn 60 ets, wool fr. m.3 to i60 cts.. according to the quality i cotld from 10 to 1. cts. Let the general assembly also causeeppl to be made by each State Society, these re ports to contain accurate statistics of the amount of each staple raised in every 9Stae. l'his scheme may at first sight appsr vi-. ionarv. but we think we can meet eteryob jection, except such as may be bhrotgLtby the courtiers of the commercial king. For example, they wi!l say that it will pretv their pocketing all the profits made oni era' produce; but we do not carea ataw If tt does. It is high time that the farmers were wes kimr from their Rip Van Winkle sleep; it high time their eves were opened. and thi energies taxed, to overthrow the monster wh;o has fattened to such huge proportioi: in the profits or their toil. I> it not absurd and cowardly feathe ftal. ers to allow merchants, whpodepend o thea Sor their lio<l and living. to sett the price os their produce, ari at the same time fix the saitte of their own merchandise? Why not trarde fairly; at least to allow the farmer to price his own commodities ? Or,iftheywjUl. not allow them to do it. we say, farmnes charge a ju.st srise,.andstarve them into sb iection. Yes, it is in the farmer:s power, If they will unite in one harmonious wholefto control those merchants and mannfactrsm ' who are doing all im their power to crmk them to the earth See the effort being unts by the nraaafacturers to annihilate the. ta'f on iwools. The "'wool, gnower' asks. "What is to be done "" We say, let a new party of Ameri can patriots be !ormned, to be composed qfthe honest farmers and mechanics, and let their motto be, Union and our own rights. tLb them crush the factions and isms of the day. let them elect such men to Congress as will" bind themselves to protect American indi. try, whether mechanical or agricultural. Our ceantry never will be superlatively prosperous until a high tariff is imposed iat all foreign articles. We are independent. d England and the rest of the world: therefor let us make our own iron and clothes,.anm protect them. so that the foreign cannot coen pete with.the domestic; and we will git tee that the farmers will thrive, themeel.s its will thrive, and we will permit the merchants and the manufacturers to thrive too, although they want to rob us of all we raise. it is to our own interest to lettlem thaive, for the more we have to feed and clothe, the more profitable our manly calling. What would the farmer do with his; surplus 'wheat and corn, if all were farmers?- We want as many mechanics as we can get; thi more the better. Whatif we do have to pay more for manufactured articles? Why, we can afford to, if we have a pocket full o "rocks.' Farmers, wake up, and keep awake. Do not let this plan fail for the want of energy. Do not read, and then forgot, but go to. wnrL Now is the time. Form societies as fastat you can, make yo.ar resolutions, and let a losnger be said that you are blind and asleep, and slaves of the rest of mankind. This is a charitable plan. as well asa plan to secure yourown rights; for it will preqt that monopoly which starves the poor. 1" merchants wish to speculate on our grs5,\ let them. do so in foreign lands,but notiq this. We request other agricultural journals to copy this for the benefit of their patronsasl that the ballt may keep in motion.-The Plough, Loom and the .nvil. TassMs.-Borrowed garments seldomm t well. Haste often tips up its own heels. Men often blush to hear what they arenet ashamed to act. Pride is a flower that grows in the devil's garden. More are drowned in the wise ctpthan in the ocean He who buys too many supefluities, may be obliged to sell his necessities. The heart of the miser must be touched with a hot iron before any warmth be pro duedd. He who talks most has often the lees brains. Never patronize a spendthrift; bettel let thy silvear and gold rs in thy till.
