" tual to the time selected, whites an.
Id blacks, orators and all, filled the exten
sive grounds of the Court lHouse square
We did not, nor any one else, anticipate
- so large a crowd would be in attendance
Iy but they were there by hundreds. In
ir deed, so surprised were we, that for:
re timo all felt puzzled to know how the
were to be fed. Many went away with
out even getting a " bite," for which we
n were not to blame, but rather themselves
for not letting us know they were comn
. ing in such numbers. Several hundred
loaves of bread, two oxen, two sheep and
a couple of porkers were missing jusl
about as quick as we ever saw food die
iappear in the hungriest days of the late
" so-called." But we have begun at the
'e wrong end of the report.
e At 12 o'clock, the meeting was called
's to order and organized with the follow
ing officerse : President, Raphael Hebert
vice-Presidents, Joseph Brand, LBelesaire
Landry, Adamis Hebert, Tom P. Vaughn,
V. Dubrooa, Rich'd Ilanrahan, J. V. Du
raldo and W. C. Clark. H. J. Hyams,
Col. J. O. Fuqua, of Baton Rouge, was
I called for, and responded to the appeal in
one of those eloquent addresses which
a have made him so popular in this section
h of the State and in fact wherever he is
I known. To follow him through the ex
tent of his remarks so as to give even
the substance, would occupy more space
and time ,than we can well afford to
spare in the present crowded condition
of our columns. We will only say his
, efforts were productive of much good
among the colored people as many of
them testified after the close of the meet
Major Herron was the next speaker'
and for nearly two hours he kept his au
dience spell-bound in the masterly man
ner in which he dissected the mischievious
tendencies of the Radical party. He ex
t plained to that portion of his audience to
which be particularly addressed himself,
I how, why and wherefore their interest
r lay with their Democratic friends. That
he was fully understood was shown by
the many rounds of applause and cheers
from them. As in the case of Col Fuqua,
we cannot afford a synopsis of Major
IIerron's speech. It was certainly one
of the most telling we have heard dur
ing the campaign. After Maj. Herron
had concluded, dinner was anouoonced and
the attack upon the eatables commenced,
which resulted as described in the first
part of this sketch. However, the best
feeling prevailed between all shades of
I color and classes which we were much
pleased to see, and hope to witness a
similar disposition at our next barbecue a
couple of weeks hence, when we shall
be certain to feastably entertain all who
honor us, though they come by thousands.
Dinner over, the crowd again assem
bled around the stand to hear the address
of Scott Gordon, Esq., a colored speaker
from Baton Rouge. Scott has a happy
knack of speaking which invariably tells
well with his audience. He brings in
more aneodotes and witty points in his
argument than any man of his color we
ever heard speak before, while the more

T1:r. )ATON ROUGE JU..IAIC, iL.ilE; IS
-Last Saturday eveniing, prolmpted by
an ardently curious feeling we could not
account for, a trip to Baton ILouge was
conceived and immediately excxncutcd.
After wandering through the mazes and
lahyrynths of that compound of bricks,
mtr tar and other building materials, for
an hour or two, we snddenly encountered
a Radical procession of the blackest hIe
we ever saw in a dark night before. Ilow
many gentlemen of African persuasion
and American adoption were in the line,
all yelling and shouting like so many
madmcu, could not exactly be determin
ed ; but they were enough to wake up
all the drowsy citizens of that little burg,
even though they slept as sound as the
fabled seven sleepers of yore. Music they
had-after a fashion--torches in profus
ion and transparencies ad libituml . The
display was grand in the extreme to all
the Radicals in town, and excessively
delightful to all those who participated
in it. The crowing feature of the evening
was one not soon to be forgotten by all
who witnessed it : A magnificent skifl,
fancifully rigged to represent some vessel
unknown to naval architects, mounted on
wheels, was drawn by several horses and
mules of the most lively colors and at
tractive appearance. Seated within the
nondescript, were thirty or forty young
and gushing damsels who were supposed
to represent the present and perspective
States of the Union, most tastefully attir
ed in immaculate white, with the emblems
of innocence wreathed around their deli
cate brows, the lovely cherubs of all
shades from chrome yellow to sooty black,
seemed like angels dropped from Para.
dise and bringing with them the sweetest
perfumes which dispensed their fragrant
odors for squares around. It was a sight
to be seen once in a lifetime ; but should
stern necessity require a repetition of
that gay and festive spectacle, we shall
be on hand though it oost the last dime in
our strong box. After marching some
thirty or forty miles through the streets,
the procession dissolved and the fete was
accomplished. Overcome by the gay
and sublime pageant, we wandered into
Charley Wiek's and partook of some re
freshment, and then to Steve's for downy
SKYMOUa CENTRAL CLUB.-A much Jar.

bled at the Court House last Monday for
the purpose of organizing a central club
for the parisbh. The meeting was called
to order 1,y Joe. N. Young, Esq., ,iho,
after stating the object for which it was
held, proposed Capt. W. B. Robertson,
Jr., for President. The nomination was
unanimously adopted, and Capt. Robert.
son returned thanks for the compliment
in a neat and tasty address. James L.
Lobdell was unanimously elected vice
President, W. B. Chamberlin, Treasurer,
and A. D. Barrow, Secretary. The Club
will meet regularly every Saturday morn
ing; at 10 o'clock, and comprises all white
voteir residing in the sixth, seventh and
eighth wards. We anticipate much good
to the cause from the formation of the
Central' Ulub, composed as it is of many
of our best citizens, and the hardest
workers when work is to be done.

PICT5 NoiRTr AND SoUTI..- WtasMlnyton,
Aug. 23.-All the advices received here,
recently, from the South, represent carpet
bagism as on its death-bed. With the
exception of Florida and South Carolina,
all theo Southern States are conceded as
certain to go for Scymour and Blair. The
Itadical ;organizations in the reconstruct
,ed regions are dwindling away rapidly,
andt defection has reached their very
:itronghold with such alarming results
that the carpet-bag heroes see nothing
but ruin ahead. They have discovered
their weakness in the very spot where
they looked for an impregnable tower of
strength. The negroes, whom they relied
upon as their right arm of power, have
become disgusted and proclaim that the
white Radical is a greater enemy to them
than the white rebels who were lately
their masters. The most intelligent blacks,
therefore, have determined to join hands
with their old masters and drive the car
pet-bag adventurers from the South to
their native element. This repudiation
of Radicalism by the colored citizens is
overwhelming the Republican leaders of
the South, and consequently they are be
ginning to realize that they have been
caught in their own trap. Several shrewd
,Republicans who have just returned from
dilferent parts of the South admit that
Sambo has turned the tables upon them
completely and that now their only hope
of success is in 4he North. This last
hope seems not to have a very firm hold
of them either, judging by the manner in
which they write to their friends in this
city. The correspondence sent here from
different States in the East and West by
ltadical stumpers and managers is of the
most desponding character. They admit
that Pennsylvania, Indiana and Ohio are
lost to Grant and Colfax without redemp.
tion, and one of them declares that illin
ois will go the same way unless the
strongest efforts are made to save it.
Logan's defeat as Congressman from the
State at large is spoken of as certain, but
the electoral ticket, it is urged, may be
carried by clever engineering. The most
sangnne Republican I have seen here
from Colfax's State only figures up a ma
jority of three thousand in Indians. In
fact the impression is very general here
now that Seymour and Blair will be elect
ed by a very decisive majority.
SThe following items are from the N.
, O. Bulletin of last Monday :
The Bag organ complainR that a col.
ored waiter has been discharged at a
hoardin house because heo urned out
with th " (Grant Invinciblt'e," anf advis

well for the Democrats to "severely pa

white trash to pieces, and lay the city in
" Another riot in New Orleans would
elect Grant President." This Radical
keynote seems to have been struck again.

street quarrel ; the Grant Clubs are al
