To Tan PATRONS OF THE SUOAR PLANTER.
-Having sold our interest in the SugarPlan
ter to Mr. H. J. 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Jooa and GaRnNER have withdrawn from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.
M7 Admiral MAsxaax hps placed us un
der obuhgations for late New Orleans papers.
Many thanks to you, Diox, and may you al
ways weather the storms of adversity-and
the river !
7"Thanks to Hon. G. A. 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

vocate 29th nit.
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

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.
Commun icated. i
The Fairs.
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

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

moments paid half a dollar fine for laughing

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. I heard you had
been making extensive purchases that even

the babies !- [No such thing-a vile calumy.

Extiact from a letter by the Rev. Mr
Churchill of Boston, who is now travelling
for his health in the East.
"It gives one an ever present idea of the

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.

BY P.. L. H.
In the calm shadow of this Sabtath night,
liesa ainin. vLscious thoug'lts and vain desire,
I Fit with sober, bet unseen del'ght.
I- the b!ithe p" esence of my ficl:e:tlg fire;
Ieca'1 my strugleso witn the Wo mly past,
And wonder how my hea.t w'thsood the trying
blast.
And yet. it heats within my quiet breast,'
As warmly, not as wildly, as o. old;
Perchance a little better for he test
Or human sorrows, mixed and manifold;
P:rchance more fitted to repel or bear
The now familiarstings of poverty add care.
Books are about me, full of glor;ous things,
Left by the good and gifted of the earth
Pearls, shaken like the dews, from Fancy's wings,
Burnings of pathos; scintillings of mirth
And, what is nearer unto heaven allied,
The Christian's treasure page, and comforter, and
guide.
Beings, how dearly lovedl are circled round,
Talking together in an undertone,
Of pleasant voices, lest to rude a sound
Should wake the dreamer from his musings lone:
While the old cricket, in his corner dim,
Pours on my passiv6 ear his undisturbing hymn.

- 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."

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.
