HrIas, we have to return you our thanks for the kindness which you have so treely extended to us. Mr. HYAxs is now proprietor of the paper, and from what we know of him, we are sat sied you will be pl eased with the change. Mr. H. is a young gentleman worthy of your patronage, and by giving him a full subscrip tion and advertising list, you may greatly promote your own interests, while you ren der him a great service. JOSEPH JOOR. J. S. GARDNER. By the above it will be seen that Messrs. Jooa and GaRnNER have withdrawn from the S.gar Plaster, and that I have become sole proprietor. Upon retiring, these gentle men carry with them my best wishes for their prosperity and success. Having started in life upon "my own hook," I shall spare *nr e.liu ons to make my paper worthy of tz i..t, : aI support heretofore extepded to it. HENRY J. HYAMS.

PICx for a copy of his bill "To amend the several acts of the Legislature; entitled 'Acts to regulate the Pelice and Government of the Town and City of Baton Rouge.'" Mr. 'P ike has shown himself an indefatigable member, of the House and is justly entitlad to the thanks of the entire community, forhis energy and perseverance. 0I7The New York Express says that Gar rison and other "friends of freedom" have is sued a call for a convention in that city, to meet in May next, "to dispute the Divine au thority of the Holy Scriptures." What next will these fanatics seek to abolish? Tax OPELoUvsA PATRIOT.-This sterling journal comes to us this week considerably enlarged and improved- The "tolk" of St. Lands y should be proud of having a newspaper in their parish that does them so much cred it. Our old time friend, Awr. LirvroSTow, is just the man to conduct a paper properly and if he does not succeed in his enterprise, the fault is certainly not his own. g* A mania for statue erecting is prevail ing in New Orleans just now. The good people of that city having erected an eques trin statue to Gen. Jackson, and ate about raising means to erect one to Henry Clay, a ;thivd proposition has been made in a commu nication to the True Deta, to do the like honor to the illustrious Jefferson. A good move. We would like to see, these projects carried out. Some years ago a large sum of money was raised for s stat' of Franklin, to be placed in Lafayette Squgae, but what became of the money, it is rather hard to tell. New Orleans will make a splendid statue city. C[ The Havana correspondent of the Tiue Delta, of Feb. 16, says it is of some con sequence for your folks to know that we are to have a small crop of sugar this year.

It seems to us, that our people have lost all feelings of pride and bend with suppliant knee beneath the villifications and tongue lashings of the Sparian band, now in power It hasbecome common-common because we have hitherto passed their taunts in a!most silence by, to hear the American party de nounced as "traitors," "brass-knuckle assas ins," "affilliators with Abolitionists," "fire brands between father and son,"- "murderers and slanderers," until the vocabulary of foul mouthed locofocoism is exhansted and needs replenishing. These vindictive terms are not alone bestowed upon the rabble of our cities, but they are lavished with open hand indiscriminately upon all who have stepped forward in the proud consciousness of right, and dared to avow themselves members of the American party. You, gray-haired sires who upon the loved a oil of Louisiana, have raised sons to tread in your footsteps when you shall have passed away-you are an as. sassin I You, young man, who looked ever with a freeman's longing, to the time when you could cast a freeman's vote--you are a cowardly brass-knuckle desperado and mid night thief! You, sir, with nature's bright est gifts stamped upon your brow, must stand back, and give way to the demagogue, whose thanksgiving prayer, is, that he is a dema gogue-and thank God that the arm bf loco foco justice falls not heavily upon you-for you are a disgrace to your count'ry-you are athag and a murderer! You, Planters of Louisiana, who own a hundred slaves, and whose very existence is'bound up in the laws that protect your property to you-you, who have shown by your devotion to the South and her institutions, that you are inseperably blended with them-youare worse than Abo litionists, for without cause you affiliate with them! Ministers of the Gospel,and peaceful members of the Church, pride not yourselves any longer, upon your faithtul adherence to the teachings of the gentle Master whose doctrines you follow with humble step-the blessing of the peace-maker is torn from you by your thus voluntarily assuming connex ion with the American party-fire-brands you are between father and son, and living refutations of the precepts you pretend to follow-and are violators of the amenities of social life! How dared you all to raise your voices against holy democracy ? Did you not know you were Helots, slaves, and you had no right to think for yourselves? The caption of this article is brit a sample of the opinion your Democratic adversaries entertain of you, and whatever may be your station in life, remember you come under the gentle benediction of those who now arrogate to themselves the once proud title of Democ racy; Treasure these things up, members of the American party, and when next the time comes to decide at the ballot box, who shall preside over the destinies of our beloved country, show them that you remember deep ly these calumnies. YouNG MEn's Lycraa.-Some little dis satisfaction has been created in Baton Rouge in consequence of the failure of two of the lecturers, before this institution, to deliver their lectures at the time appointed. It is certainly not the fault of the Board of Direc tors, that these failures took place. but we think they should have provided against tLe.u by having substitutes ready to lecture in the event of the non-appearance of the regularly appointed lectu~er. The citizens do not rel ish the idea of going to the Lecture room with their families, and, after waiting an hour or two, to be told that the lecturer was not forthrcoming. On Monday evening next, \Ir. S. S. HALL, will deliver an address before the Lyceum upon Ancient and Modern Science; a subject, which we feel assured, Mr. Hall will do justice to. We have his own woad that there will be no failure upon his part. A BaIOWT LEGISLrTOR. - The House on last Satbrday had under consideration, An Act to provide for the Licensing of Physi cians, Surgeonsiand Apothecaries. Mr. Rob inson moved to strike out the enacting-clause When a member from one of the north west ern Parishes, called for itereading. Our good looking friend; the Chief Clerk, ver-gravely read-"Be it enacted by the Se,sate and House of Representativesof the Stete of Louisiana in General A.ssembly conted" and stopped to the no small amusement of the House, and the bright member fin.d that he had shown his ---- gnorance of parliamnentary practice. MILLAieD FtLLxoaz.s-The able and elo quent editor of the Princeton Kentuckian has set the proud name of Fillmore upon the flag at his mast-bead as the American candidate ,for the Preiidency. In speaking of that great and honest statesman he makes thee just remarks: - . Millard Fillmore is to-daythestar towards whose cheering light thousands of eyes are turning for deliverance from our preseht trouoles. He is astatesman of high intellect and film resolve, a patriot pure and incorrupt ible. We have tried him in the time of dan ger, and he has proved himself worthy of his trust. Like the heroes of Buenat Vista "he was baptised in fire and blood and came out steel." His uptriotisn is bounded by no Mason and Dixon line: itis broad' as the prairies andforests; the lakes and the rivers of our contineat, cenmprheading 'l is com mon brotherhood.

Thi.fiir given by the Catholic Ladies is represented to me (for I was not present) to have been perfectly succesful ; the Ladies hSving realised $560. 7he Catholics of our l community are apsong our most enterprising 7 Iud public spirited citizens as is evidenced lib the large and beautiful church which they have built and the Benevolent Societies 1 they support. On your side o( the river, they form the community almost altogether, and the miser-. able spbterfuge that the American Party is opposed to their religion, received its final contradiction (we hope) i, the triumphant magority Catholic West Baton Rouge gave to the Amercan nominees. The Fair of the Presbyterians Ladies was thronged with pretty women and the usual concomitant, ugly mtes; money flowed freely and many a young gAnt got up the next morn ing-shook his unmentionables and finding no gingling sound rewarded his watchful ear, exclaimed with us and Shakespeare "Oh chari ty ! Oh Benevolence ! thou art a great insti tutition, and I hope you cover a multitude of sins." The besuty',that shone resplendant that night was perfecty incomprehensible-I can not imagine where so many pretty women sprung from and really felt pround for the time, of Baton Rouge. There was the Tableaux Vivant (pronounc ed by the fashionables Tablox Viwyfan.es) and as Iwas determined to see every thing scroug ed in and saw nothing. After indomitable exertions, I got squeezed into a corner of the room and formed the base of a pyramid com posed of two boys and four fat men. I t must have been beautiful, however, for the old gent that formed my apex almost suffocated strata no 3 with his feeling exprcsdions of ddlight I got out, however, paid half a dollar for the privilege. Twas a halfa dollar to get in, half a dollar to turn round, end half a dollar to get out again, and then half a dollar to go in again and hear the angels sing. I listened awhile until I felt so sweet, I felt like eating ice cream-paid half a dollar-went out paid half a dollar to see eighteen men eat ice cream-went to the post-office paid half a dollar to get a valentine with some kind re marks in it-heard an awful sneeze turned round and was just in time to see "Things' repeat the sneeze and pay a dollar apiece to four ygung ladies who applied a boquet to his olfactories as a restorative-read our Val entine-re-enveloped it-directed it to afriend -pre-paid it with halfa dollar and in a few moments paid half a dollar fine for laughing at him pay halfa dollar for the complimen taty missive. Oh it wao glorious amusement, and I went to sleep that night and dreamed it was raining pretty girls and half dollars. The net proceeds of the fair we understand were 860. By the way, Mr. Editor.

Mr Churchill of Boston, who is now travelling for his health in the East. "It gives one an ever present idea of the expansive enterprise of h;s countrymen, to find their commodities of commerce con tinually in his Bath wherever he goes. I have not visited any considerable city of Turkey, where I did not find the Medicines of my country represented by AYEas CIER nY PECTORAL.

I was told yesterday that tle Cherry Pec toral had been presented to the Sultan; and is new in constant use in his harem, and in the Hospitals of the Empire.' A NEW isens oF SLAVE TRADE.-A letter from Callao, (Peru,) says The only business transacted at present is the sellingof Chinese slaves, landing from American and English ships. Language is inadequate to express the horrible condition of these miserable wretches. Stolefi from their homes and families, smuggled on ship board without their consent, on the passage treated like brutes, they are brought to this coast and sold to men who have no mercy, for a nominal term of eight years, although in many instances the term is not mentioned. An American ship sailed from China with six htndred and five Chinese, and landed four hundred and four, leaving two hundred and one, who either died or drowned themselves on the passage. The average price realized for this cargo of human flesh was $?50 per head. The horrors of the African slave trade in the palmiest days, were nothing to be compared to this; for in other countries the:e are laws for the' protection of the slaves, but here the master is clothed with absolute authority, and can govern his slaves as he sees fit. 07 We perceive by the last number of the Houma Ceres, that Mr. 2W. R. HaYNEs has become a partner in the concern. The improved appearance~of the Ceres, is a prac tical evidence of the typographical skill ot Mr. Haynes. Io" The river is risang rapidly at this point.

BAeOx ROUGE, March 4th., 1856. Q We are not in the habit of complaining when our contemporaries make selections from our paper without the usual credit, but we do most solemnly protest against giving other paperstlhe credit for our arti~les. - A Large Defalcation. W. H. GARLAND for several years past Treasurer of the city of New Orleans, has turned up defaulter to the city for amounts variously estimated at from $100,000 to $300, 000. The N. N. Ddta says: Nothing could exceed the astonishment the easy-going, believe-everything and do nothing portion of the citizens of New Orleans yesterday morning, on evading the astounding developmlents made on the previous night in the Cormoni Council, of the defalcations of Mr. Garland-the gentlemani who for the last eight years, has, iu a financial point of view, controlled the destinies of the city of New Orleans. At many a breakfast table the question was fully discussed. and before twelve o'clock mrualy a street corner group was engaged inl speculating on the singularity of the Treasurers conduct; andeven the pul pit we understand, was not free from the ex citing topic of the day. Many had the har dihood to say that they had long expected such developemelnt, and among "these many" we recognized not a few of the late Treas urer's best friend:. They had all along been I surprised that a man should grow so rich in a short space of time on the paltry salary of three thousa lnd live hundred dollars per annum. That he should be able to spend so much mloney at election times; speculate so exten s.a ely in lands and railroads ; buy town sites, have the entire council at his beck and nod; start a savings bank; live a life of luxury; Setc., etc. T hey were really astonished at this; and yet there was, ill every group, many anll U believing Thomas. "How could such a fine sp' !: in gentleman as Mr. Garland do this . 1 I, very thought of it was monstrous; they would out believe until they had seen more. They had read the newspapers in New Ol leans durilm the last twelve months ; they had seen in them repeated warnings to be ware of the Treasury department; they had read and were perfectly familiar with the-ac I tio of the Council in regard to the Trust Funds, and knew that an order of the Court had been found necessary to force him to sur render a portion of these sacred funds to the Citizenls Bank. Yet they believed that all was right: that the Treasurer, so far as in tegrity was concerned. was.t saris reprcche. But we cannot complain ot the blindness or obtuseness of these unsuspecting citizens, I when we reemmber that the Common Court I cl. Finance Cotmlrttee and all, were success t fully hoodwinked and failed to act for the protection of the city.s interest, until the al leged defaulting Treasurer had an opportuni ty to make good his escape. whicir. we are ciediblv inlfrired, he did at 9 o clock on Saturday nirht. ou boa'rd his own schooner tihe Elizabeth lane. while in secret sessionthe Common Council was deliberatnug the pro priety of havisng him arrested-and choosing a successor fronm their ow'n delectable body to take charge of the small remains of the treasurv. Col. Garland's defalcations we understand from good authority, will not fall short of :510 li)0O-lhut it is thought by many that the city has surtered during his administration. financially. ex',cntively and legislatively.: to the extent of at least ti,000.000 ; for God only knows, though the people have a pretty good idea. what has occurred in that Treas urer:s otffice during the last eight years, that has never and perhaps never will transpire. It is said that soon after the books and pa pers were taken possession of by the Finance committee on Saturday, and the office closed. Col. Garland made hasty preparations to leave for parts unknown; and to this end had the fast sailing schooner Elizabeth Jane, of which craft he is owner, htted up in hot haste and cleared at the Custnoni-house, for Sabine in Texas. or Aransas pass. In the evening. while with closed doors the Council was dls cuasing the propriety of impeaching the great , nanreer. accompanried by asrmgle friend arl i;is well packed trunk. the Col. repaired on board the schooner. and at ten o 'clocal the Elizabeth Jariu wcighed anchor. and,attached to a tow-boat, went --staving" down the river with her precio:us cargo, the defaulting Treas urer of New Orleans. In the morning, when this fact was made known, the officers of the police repaired to the Balize telegraph station, in order to tel egraph the officers at South-west Pass; bqt the Col. had not worked the wires for so mIany years to no purpose,and the police were met with the response. "the wires are down!"r Of course they were-the police might have known it. In this dilemma, recourse was had to the Common Council and that body at once placed the mea;is at the disposal of the Chief of Police to charter a steamboat to go in pursuit oftthe fugaciousTreasurer ; but we tear to no purpose, for by ten o'clock yester day morning the Elizabeth Jane was out to sea, and with a fa;r breeze. far on her way to parts unknown., or a market. She is a fast sailin craft, and we defy even the Grape shot, George Law's great yacht, to overtake her, were it possible to send that redoubtable vessel in persuit. Thus stands at present the excitement. We expect a terrific run of poor laborers, washer women and servant girls on the Louisiana Savings Bank this morning, and shall have a '"chiel there to take notes." The afternoon edition of the same paper announced his capture and confinement in the Parish Jail: Col. William TI. Garland, the defaulting Treasurer, who fled from the city, per schoon er Jane Elizabeth, on Saturday night last, has been arrested, and is now in the parish prison, awaiting the action of the authorities in his case. It appears that the telegraph wires were not, as supposed, cut, but, the line does not work on Sunday. Capt. Maoynan made every effort to get a despatch through, and finally at 7 o'clock last night, succeeded in finding an operator. The fact of Mr. Garland's flight was telegraphed to the tow-boat Anglo-Nor ma,, lyiig at the Balize. To this despatch no answer was received-hence nothing was known of the arrest till the arrival gl the distinguished prisoner this morning on the Anglo-Norman. So soon as the despatch from Chief Moynan was recieved by the officers of the Anglo Norman, they informed Mr. Bowditch, the officer at Pass a l'Outre, of the fact, and took measures to intercept the Jane Elizabeth and her precious cargo. The schooner'fortunate ly had not reached the Balize yet, and when she did arrive half an hour later, she was im mediately boarded by Mr. Bowditch, who at once arrested Mr. Garland. With downcast countenance and prostrated hopes he left the schooner, and accomp.tnied the officer on board the Anglo-Norman, wpich staunch vessel at once got up steam ann .returned to the city. The Anglo-Norman arrived at 9 o'clock this morning, and tae Chief of Police wt.nt on board, received Col. Garlund, and escorted him to the Parish prison. He appeared to be in a very bad mood, and not disposed to be very communicative. He walked silently in company with the Chief to the Parish prison, where he is now securely lodged. Mr. Garland was under the impression when he fled that a warrant had.,been issued at 5 o'clock on Saturday night, when the fact was that it was not. issued until ten o'clock. The N. O. Bulletin publishllhe following items, already discovered: of 1% late Treas. urer's defaleation. The use of the public money to the amount atf $27.884. from 11th April, 1855, to 26th of January, 1856,. A deficit of Sl,940,received in 18,4 from the State Treasury, has never been accounted for. The use of $18.209, received from the wa ter works. from 27th March, 1855, to January 2:th, 1856. A deficit of 18.200:received in December, 1853, from the same source, not accounted for. A balance against the Treasurer of 35,000 belonging to the "Trust Funds"-this deficit dates back to 1S54. A balance of $57.231, in the hands of tba Treasurer. which shoud lhave been deposited with the Fiscal agent on the 23d of Februar but which has not been accounted for. From the above resume it will appear that the City Treasurer is in actual default to the amount of $1:6,000. XEW ADVERTISEMENTS.
