Tasx NorTlc.-A meeting of the Baton Rouge Light Artillery, is called for Monday night, the 18th inst. The members are requested to be punctual. t'We have been compelled to bring out our paper in large type this week, in consequence of the severe storm on Mon day and Tuesday last, preventing our crossinpthe river. We have had to compress six days work into four. For the same reason, we are unable to pup lish the procetdings of the Police Jury this week. S The attention of planters and thers is respectfully called to the notice of a teacher, to be found in another col umn. The lady is a Louisianan, and is at present engaged in teaching at the North. but disgusted with the calumnies I heaped upon the institutions of the South, she, ardently desires to return home. She offers the best testimonials as to ability, &c. For further information apply at this office. .MCol. S. W. .OAEEY, an old and highly respectable citizen of New Or I leans, died it that city on Wednesday last; A good man gone ! TiE' STORM.--Our exchanges all note the efects of the late disastrous storm. The damage along the sea coast must be immense judging by what has taken place in the inte rior. In our parish among the crope the effect has been fearful. We have conversed with our residents frodr different portions of the parish and they all tell pretty much the same story. Cotton is completely ruined. On some of theplantations, the water from the swamps has backed up into the fields-break down levees and completely covering the cotton, and resembling minature lakes. Corn his fared little otrno better, and in many places itis entirelyidestrdyed. The cane has also sufered to an extent that materially effects its growth,.and it is otherwise injured. This is by far one of the severest storms we have ever experienced, and its effects have beep pmst, terible. So fa r, in the coun. try, we have heard of no loss of life or limb. .That Mr. Buchanan is in favor of the ex tensiov of slavery, or, if elected, "will . o for the 'extensilt'bTf laver ," no honest, intel ligent man believes.--ibany 4.rgus.

'The duty of tlh South in the present " Crisis. We believe all adurit withoutdistino tiou of party, that the contest now go ing on for political supreluacy, lies be tween FR~nMOxr on the one hand and FI.LIMORE or ]tc'(IIA.aN on the other. The struggle is no longer between two great national parties a-s heretofore, but between sectionalismn and nationalismI- in other twords, bets elen fanatici-nm of the North and the COlnserVatistil of the whole Scounit rv. I The causes that have produced these results, so pregnant with fearful conse quences, it is not our purpose niow to discuss, it being sufficient for the present that the fact is not disputed. In such a contest, it is clearly evidenit that the North has nothingl to lose, while the South has everything-her dearest rights her very existence even, dependtling Iponl the issue. What then,.is her dutlly i such a crisis ? The answer is very plain. She should, as one man, unite in sup. port of the safest and most available of the two candidates opposed to Fulr:ulo r and Bllack JRepublieanisnl. Thlus far there can be lno difference of oppinion ; but at this joint a divergence takes place, the friends of Mr. Filu.LaloRl and Mr. ICCHSANAx, each contending that their own favo:ite candidate is the safest and most available man for the emergency. hence, it becomes us to investigate dis passionately yet thoroughly, the merits and chances of success of these two can didates in order that we may decide cor rectly, whom we should support. We have already referred, at length, to Mr. BeIcn.iAN's political record, andl conclusively proven we think, that there is nothing in his past history, to show that he has been personaly lpolitically, or in any other way, friendly to the South. It is true he has never allowed his prejudices or animosities to lead him into open and undisguised warfare against the rights of the South, as such a course would be likely Lo defeat his aspirations for presidential honors, never theless his opposition to slavery exten sion has been firm and persistent. And here we would be willing to let Mr. H1 cInANAN's claims upon the South, rest, were it not for the fact, that his iedas, ignoring his past history, base those claims, in a great measure, upon that "Sam hatch leap" which placed him up on the Cincinnati Platform, and sundry other small leaps of the Bull Frog species which placed him-nowhere. Admitting say they, that Mr. BccrtANAN's course, hitherto, has been a little devious, lie is all right now--he stands fairly and squarely upon the Doemocratic platform which garantees to the fullest extent protection to Southern rights. Well for the sake of argnment, let us grant that this Cincinnati platform contains a full guarantee of the rights of the South -what then I Has a mere endorse .nent of that platform any binding force? None, whatever. All experience shows, that these platforms ara nothing but clap-traps to gu!l the dear people-use ful'perhaps during a canvass, but of no eartl y use after an election, Why just look at the Baltimore Democratic plat form. Did that precious instrument, though most cordially subscribed to, by Mr. Pierce, bind him after his clevation ta the Presidency I We find inothat document, that the Democratic party were absolutely and unconditionally op posed to the agitation of slavery in any form. Mr. Pierce said, "that's my hand exactly-no more agitation of the slave, ry question." Very good. This was be fore the election. But how was it after wards? Why the first thing the Democ racy did, was to give the lie direct to their Baltimore pledges and Mr. Pierce swore to that lie, by aiding and lending his signature to the Kansas-Nebraska bill. So it has been and so it always will be, with such pledges. But we de ny that the Cincinnati platform contains any such guarantee as that referred to above, and cite the Van Burens, Coch s ranes, Dixes, and Bentons, Democratic authority in proof of what we say. Does any one suppose for a moment, that such men as the bone and sinew of the Free u soil party of the North and West, would support either Buchanan or the platform on which he stands, if either favored the extension of slavery 1 There is no man r in the whole South so profoundly stupid, as to suppose any such thing. We know s it has been said, that these Freesoilers r have repented and like prodigals have returned to the Democratic sty, but such is not the case. There iL no evidenee of the h tfatL-O tie t u Ui. , we hat the ir written declaratious to tid ellect, that they sacrifice none of their F'recsuil plin ions, by .upporting Mr. ]hichanan, platform and all, whil.' Princ' John goes ono step farther :anI n *,'r; a: reward to rny ot will poiiint Iout to himl "a lice, or a sentence in thi Ci t iiniati pla'form which Iooled to, or encoura ,igl the ex tension of slavcrv to free t,.rrlit .l . \With the fllowing extract, from the i Proildence Post, a thorough going it channa paper, pulblilsl in I'ro, id,.oe, ;Rhode Island, we p:ias to a more inter esting tiheiui: Mr. Ithchanlan n&errr udlerod a word in de f,enrc of shIre y, or whispered a Tleteitnce in lavuor of its extellce.or rolt i 4rlt rol, rhur/ any /whult ni,1 1 would runstr.llrue into a sllh to ,uIp port the 'alltiatwn, LIt u3 now briellv refer to Mr. FILL .u.I.:'s clhimns not only upon the South, but the entire cotuntry, and in doing so, iwe need go no firther back tlhan the o ',unieiiiiment of his Administration of lie Genieral (;overnment. \\hen he succeeded to the Executive chair, affairs were in ali. st a hope,!less ruinous en ,lition. 1ifliculties i,;t him at every step. ''The country was convulsed with sectional strife, and there was little pros pect of peace, except through the in terpositioil of soiue divini a)lecy. lie felt that he lacked the confidence of his Southern frie'hnds, who sup'ported himi 'fr thle Vice P'resiilency, vet ini the face of all these lifficulties, he grasped the reins of Govcrnment pith a firm hand, leterlminoed to conquter the approbation of a whole nation, and he succeedlel. The first step of his aiuinjnistration proved his superior wisdits. Instead of retaining the Cabinet or his prede cessor, which was wanting :n that unity of sentiment ind lpurpose, so necessary to the effectiveness of the Executive de partment, lie called around him the ablest and most conservative men of the country-men whose opinions upon all the questions of the day correspond&l with his own, and thus avoided those jars and discords in council, that so often weaken the Executive arm. His next step was equally full of wisdom. IHe removed from office in the North, every Freesoil or Abolition incumbent, in the South, every fire-eater or secessionist and! appointed in their places none but con servative men, thus infusing sitality anId strength into every delpatmnt of the govermiicnt. We have not the space, i: it were necessary to review ever'y act of his administration. When we say, that as a who!e, it met the approbation of every portion of the country, North,Sut b last and West, we only say what we ,can prove. His aarm support of the C(lmru rornise measures, and particularly of the Fugitive Slave law and his strict ex:cution of that law, proved to the South that in him, it had a trusty frienl. lie retired from oflico leaving the country in a state of proprlity unparal led in its history. It was the proud boast of the ncat AcCi;esrts, that lie found Rome, a city built of bricks, and left it built of marble; well may it be the boast of Mr. FILLM.ORE and Ihis friends, that he found on assuming the government, the country convulsed with sectional discord, and threatened with civil war, and on retiring, left it peace ful, prosperous, and happy. Were any other evidence necessary to support Mr. FILI.oIRE's claims, we light refer to his course since his return from Europe. Instead of closing his mouth and refer ring all enquirirers into his views upon the great questions, that are agitating the country, to the American platform, for an answer, he boldly and manfully -rpeaks out his sentiments, and well may he utter them, for they are the senti ments of too lofty a patriotism to require concealment. lie beards the lion of Northern fanaticism in his strong hold and magnanimously defends the rights of the South. Such conduct is without a precedent in the history of our coun try, and yet it is in beautiful harmony with the whole character of the man. With such facts as we have here pre sented, can any one for a moment, hiesi tate to decide which is the safest man for the South, MILLARD FILLMORE or JAMES BUCHANAN I That MS FILLMORE is the most avail able candidate, we have as little doubt as we have that he is the safest man. His chances are good for carrying one half at least, of the free States, while Mr. BucHANAN is not sure of carrying a single one; hence the only possibility of defeating FaEMONT, is for the South to give her support to Mr. FILLiMORE. That she should do so, not only duty, but self preservation requires, that she will, is the province of others, not ours, to de cide. Ilorriblte 4'aa tri 'opi4e. Last lbl nll iundatuI d.t.
