y07 Hon. TwowAs GaREE DAvIDsox, has
fully explained his vote for Mr. MAnsao,
which has proven satisfactory to the Demo
cracy. He acknowledges to have been "ad.
vised" to do so by several Democrats, be.
cause Mr. M. was aourd, never entered the
Know Nothing party-was very conserva
tive-the Democrats all voting for him, (be
cause he could'nt be elected) and before such
a host of reasons Venerable Thomas wilted.
The same gentlemen would'ut vote for Mr.
O.LaiR, whois equally as reliable and con
servative as Mr. MAYNARD, because he could
be elected. This is the way they show their
Southern feelings.
7 As nearly all readers have been infor
med, personally or otherwise, of all the inter
esting incidents of the Inauguration of Hon.
T. O. MooaR, as Governor of the State, it
were useless for us to tell them what they
already know. But we cannot permit the
occasion to pass without adding our mite to
the well-earned praises of our Baton Rouge
company of Pelican Rifes. For the short time
they had to equip and drill, their performan
ces surpassed the expectations of their most
sanguine friends. Capt. TuxIASD and his of.
ficers deserve the credit and esteem of their
fellow-citizens for the;r efforts in organizing
so handsome a military company in their

Hons Paononcrios.-Those of our read
ers wishing to examine some fine specimens
of paper made from b.gasse, and the banana
plant, can do so by calling at the Baton
Rouge Post Office, also several specimens of
hemp. The white paper, if manufactured at
the same rate that we now pay for rag paper,
for printing purposes,'will undoubtedly lead
the market, for its texture, quality and color.
The banana paper is an excellent article.
The hemp is of good color, strong fibre, and
no doubt equals the best western hemp. The
specimens of Louisiana production are dou
bly interesting from the tact that begasse-a
worthless and troublesome material to plan

a useful purpose, and the wild indigo is a
perfect nuisance to anybody and everybody.

AA; iPt.W PAl'.-*e have frequently
encountered atra.notices gaong the rounds
of the press in regard to ire formation of a
new party to be l.ed the "Union" or 'Con
servative" party. More light has been given
in the following extract from the Washing
ton correspondence of the Delta than we have
seen before. So far as our opinion goes, the
attempt to frame a new party now is worse
than madness. We have no objection to the
formation of a new party in its proper time
and place-when we may have some chance
of corpleting our organization before being
called into action, and hope one day to as
sist in bringing such a matter about. The
present is no time to speculate upon improb
abilities. But to the extract:
Fro the gayeties, I take a long step into
parti4c and the " irrepressible" conflict." A
new p rty is being organized throughout the
States called the Union League. You will
discov r its principles and objects fu'ly de
scribe in the Address of the National Ex
exutiv Committee. which I send you. I
hsat i een told that the Committee will
shdt1 be represented in ail the States of
the U ion. The Conservative merchants of
this ci y furnish "the sinews of war," and
are th ts interested in the prosperity of the
or.pniation. Clubs are being rapidly formed
in dihffrent villages and cities. and the Union
sentinment is rapid'y disintegrating the Re
public n paaty. An attempt is being made
ti re- 4ranize the Know Nothing party-Mr.
Crittenden to run for President-all on a
LTnion!basis. Its success is problematical,
as it is looked upon suspiciously by people
generally, and foreigners especially. The
Union League is entirely destitute of objec
tionable elements, and posseses a..substan.
tial Conservative platform. It will. there
fore undoubtedly carry the Union sentiment
with it. The National 'Committee of 4the
League are now making arrangements for the
publication of a weekly paper, which is de
sigued to advocate its .principles. So you
see, rtes amia. that Northern sentiment is
very far Irom being abolitionized yet.

themselves the "Southern Opposition party."
In an unprecedented short time, considering
the mail facilities between this place and
New Orleans,a new Orleans paper was re
ceived here, denouncing Mr. D. for his vote,
in anything but polite and complimentary
terms. The article created quite a sensa
tion among Louisianians in this city, as the
paper in question is known to be the spe'ial
organ of John Sliddl. But the readers of the
organ of the people, thoroughly acrquainted
as they are with the sharp practices of that
widely known gentleman, ran hardly imag
ine the effect produced by the written ac
knowledgement of John Sliddl ane his partiru

and urged Mr. Davidson to cast that vote.
Comment is unnecessary.
from the report of the Congressional proceed
ings on the 12th inst., that when the excite
ment among the members of the House oera
sioned by the falling of a pistol from the
pocket of Mr. Haskins coat had somewhat
subsided, Mr. Davidson, of Louisiana, gave
notice that when he came again to the Hall
he would bring his double barreled gun with
him ! We earnestly hope, for the peace of
country and the safety of the members of the
House, that the bellicose representative from
the Third District will not put his terrible
threat into execution.
It is much to be regretted that the report
don't say what venerable Thomas intended
doing with that gun. He has been known
to shoulder his crutch in moments of great
excitement, but 'whether he ever shot
killed or hurt anybody by the operation is
ertirely unknown. The "tear quest.on" was
satisfactorily disposed in 1857, by Venerable
Tom out crying a lot of "hardshells" at a X
road meeting; but sometime will be neces
sary to settle the "gun question." What did
he intend doing with that gun ? Perhaps to
make a good report of his actions?
DEATh or W. S. CAMPBELL.-The death
of this gentleman, so long and favorably
known in New Orleans, took place on the
morning of the 21st inst. The Bulletin
The mortal remains of this worthy gentle
man and valuable citizen, who was deceased
on the morning of the 21st inst., were fol
lowed to their last resting place in the Pro
testant Cemetary, yesterday, by a long pro
cession of our most respectable citizens.
Deep; earnest, heart-felt grief was depicted
in the features ofevery individual composing
the mourning cortege. The countenance of
avery one told the sad story that a good man
and a useful member of society had gone to
has eternal rest. An interesting feature of
the occasion, and one particularly significant
was,the appearance of some filty well-dres
sed colored people, who walked in the pro
cession immediately after the hearse. Their
sorrow was sincere, poignant, and decorously
expressed. They having long stood in the
relations of empioyes to the deceased, had
often exprienced the kindliness of his dispo
sition and the benignity of his nature, by
which their servitude had been made light
and easy.

Hon. Joan BELL FoR PassanDR .-The
Nashville papers'come to us with very eCr
thusiastic accounts of the nomination of the
Hon. John Bell for Presitlent by the OpFosi
tion members of the Tenneessee Legisla
ture. The Nashville News says:
Resolutions were adopted expressing a de
termination to maintain the Opposition or
ganization in this State. in the Presidental
contest of 1861 ; recommending the holding
of a State Convention in this city on the 22d
of February next, for the purpose of appoint

we know also he will leave nothing undone
to improve it to the fullest extent of the
means allowed him by the State. Mr. Hata

DonC.Lss AND CarrTsEDE.-The Wahbing
ton Correspondent of the New York Eveersg
Post writer that Senators Douglas and Crit
tenden both take an active interest in the
contest for the Speakership. Mr Douglas is
anxious to secure the election of a regular
Democrlt. If this ever done, it must be with
the contest of Messrs, Clark and Adrian, and
Mr. Douglas will claim the credit of their
repentance, anrid demad the quid proquo at
Charleston. Senator Crittenden; cathe oahe,
hand, opposed to a Democratic success. He
is believed to have used his influence against
the Hamilton projeat, ond is probably able to
break down any such coalition. He, of course
sees that it is ruinous policy for his little
party to merge itself i.i the disunion party of
the South.
Hon. Joa. BRLL.-The New York Tri
bune, in noticing the tact that the Nashville
Banner proposes this gentlemen as the Oppo
sition candidate for the Presidency, reviews
his Senatorial career, and says: " No public
man of our time exhibits a more unspotted
political career. There are thousands of
those who rank nominally among his politi
cal opponents who would gladly see the
affairs of State committedlto his prudent and
judicious guidance. He has been the guid
ing star of all that is noble, and manly, and
sagacious in Tenneessee politics for a quarter
of a century, and that ha should now be put
forward by the Opposition of that State as
their choice for the Presidency. is but a just
and well deserved tribute to his high charac
ter and his treat ability."
We endorse every word of the forgoing,
but could have wished that the panegyric
bad come from a parer soorce.
The Darlington (S. C.) Southerner says:
We notice that advertisements of South
ern houses located in Northern cities are al
ready beginning to make their appearance.
We do sincerely hope that the Southern peo
ple will refuse to countenance any such con
cerns. They are too much like " Northern
men with Southern principles " Let South
ern capitalists establish business houses in
Southern cities: let their capital circulate
there and aid in building up Southern com
merce and trade. andi, in establishing Southern
inldependelce Let us refuse to g to North
ern cities to trade with either Northern or
Sout hern houses.
That's the right talk I There will be an
abunldance of these Southern houses ill
Northern cities spring up on all sides. The
temptation is so great, and the Southern peo
ple so gullible, that the bitterest Yankee Ab
olitionist will for sake of the Almighty dol
lar, do anything to catch the money of the
too-confiding Southerner. Have nothing to
do with such establishments-let us buy only
from home people-and above all suspect
these whining Northerners who come out
here annually to sell their wares and hope
to curry patronage by abusing their Northern
brethren. They are the biggest rascalfof
them all.
St.iscL s DiscoventY.-The Paris corres
pondent of the Boston Traveler says that
Valpanl, the surgeon, has stated that an hon
orable surgeon or physician named Broca,
has made the following experiment:
He has placed before the face ol a person,

to make experimenlts with it, and foun I that
the state of insensibility produced was as

7 Alluding to the " prevalent weak
ness" of buildings in New York, the Express
makes the startling assetion that were it
not for the fact that they mutually support
each other on either side, like soldiers on

perhaps, ninety buildings in a hundred, in
New York, which are used for manufactur

Bill Simpkins was caught by an officer in

was attracted to the spot by the great outcry
of the vi tinm, whom the officer rescued at

wait-lorever wife, tried oysters are a soother
and a sol..ce of unquestionable efficacy. Bring
them home, wraipped in a bit of nwespaper, in
your coat-tail pocket. Don't sit down Pn
the bundlle before you get home more 'an
two or three times. When you come in. go

the brick it may contain.) Then take her
left hand in your left hand, and give it a lov

nonesense! pretty time of night to come
home !" As she savagely utters this remark
her brow contracted, and her lips ptrsed up
and evident symptoms of a faint coming on,
just slowly pull from your pocket this paper
parcel, unfold it and display the "half.dnaen
ried expressly for you. I always think of
you when I'm at businest." Her anger will
subside; the holy calm of love's young dream
will pervade her. features, and appetite for

into bed and be last asleep.
To a heavy, overwhelming wife, vast in
