With a fair registration the Demo crat says that there is no doubt of the result in this parish, test is that the Democratic party wjl carry the ay in the B, thus i ti matizig a ipub pl r te ali fair r. registratler wibe In ia iother r. place bhowrer it says t ther# Wno L doubt at all about the z tbmt mean ing perhaps and indeed almost ex pressly stating that all democratic or liberal voters will havean opportunity 1I of registering and if they do not do so, it will be their own fault. For oar -' own part taking the congratulatory paragraphs .of the Democrat on the S. appointment of the Registrar for this parish, and the declaration of Gover nor Warmoth himself in his speech at " the Ratification meeting in New Or 5 leans, that he would take every means in his power to secure such a registra ,r tion, as would effect the desired end, we can't see any grounds for fear on the part of the Democrat and its par. ty but rather think from present ap - plwarances that it is the Republican e- party if any, who have any cause for uneasiness. We intended examining a fully the official returns of the last election in this parish and comparing O the votes given at each precinct, so as to show what time outght to have been devoted to allow each neighborhood a fair registration, want of time howev er has prevented it for the present but we shall endeavor to discuss the .sub ject more fully next week. We ob serve meanwhile in the list of Regis tration appointments that several im portant precincts hove been Jeft out. Lecomte, Bayou Rapides and perhaps others. Cheneyville and Leecomte which together gave 900 votes at the last election-have only three days to register in, whilst the port of the par ish north of Red River (leaving out Pineville) which did not cast a hundred votes nearly all white, has been ac corded six. This may be all fair on the principle that every thing is fair in politics, as in love or war, which seems to be Governor Wurtmoths sen timents, but it looks sorter strange. We hope however notwithstanding the lost time, which has distressed our neighbor so much, that when the reg istration returns to Alexandria .the lee way will be brought up. ---~- - , ExcaNGuE BtooN.-We alluded l sometame ago to the changes sad im J provemoene, which are guing.ou in the Exchange-otol, under the supervision of its energetic owner, Dr. Ji. 8. Fish. One of the most important of these is just BAished, the conversion of the lower part of the ld ice depot into a large, lofty and elegant room, to which has bees added, by taking down the partition wall, the bar-room in front of it, the whole making one of the most elegant Saloons that has ever been in the place since the closing of the Ex celsior. Mr. A. A. Baillior, the proprietor, has julst received a large and choice stock of liquors, which with the assis tance of his popular and asoeomanda ing aid, Alto, he will dispense to his customuers in the very best style. He has also put up one of poor Flanmery's splendid billiard tables, merely at present for the amusement of his gtii'ts, anil has also aI quiet and re tired room, for-those wishing to amuse themselves witioat observation, on the whole, his establishment might now well take the name om one whose glories have dep·rted NELS TAYLoE.-We copy to-lday, as per instructions from headquarters, the advertisement of that old well known and reliable authority in all homrse and stable matters, Nelson Taylor Esq., annouedlng his "never msay die" motto regarding his business sad also his laudable sad deserving of eneouragement reeolmtion, to cone with the demand and necessities the times, by putting' his prices fo horse feed, horse keeping, horse hire hacking and livery of every kindi the lowest living rates. What Gras knows about statesmanship, or wha Greeley knows about farming ms3y questions of doubt, but as to wha Nels Taylor knows about horses, am all their requirements there esan and is but one opinion, and that i that he knows all and will do all tha is necessary or durable provided he re ceives his very reasonable quidpro que. AM~F;rcN CtoMERCIAL IX.--We write this paragraph with a pen dip ped in Ink trom a nottle made by Mr. E. Vallery of this town, and labeled as above. It flows freely and has every indication of being a good arti which we hope it may prove, and turn out profitable to its inventom. If a man has a great many deb a~r t'.y very" maeh to his crcdit 1" Lzi..waU. and Demcracy. " A Rem by any ether name would amell sweet." It is rather amusing, to see d read from the diferent journals of tate interested in the question, tm esawt aersy that i w gsi g , pgdag the naD he givelt' o the nmw par ty or rt the eld arty% which with the belp of promises and eajolement. easy of eveasion and still easier as it has turned out of eect, has swallowed up one which, a short time since seem. ed in fair way of attaining respectable py9pp4tipns, just as easily as a big fish awallow4d Ittle onebefore he has bad time to grow. Acuarding to the sen timent of the paIrticlar locality in which it is lpulished, each paper op posed to Repulibeaniam, clkaiu to be I)emocoratically Liberal, (the IDroucra tic elemont targely in the asemidancy) or merely Liberal, the "Ouachita Tele graph," 'Shreveport Southwestern," and other .being types of the first class, whilst the "Times" published in Shreveport also, and the "Natchitoches Times," and a few more represent the latter, to say nothing of the city press; the party, in truth being somewhat like the boy in the Pastry Cook's shop, '" Twit pie amd jelly he was loath, Either to chose so took thui both " And the end may possibly be, that like the boy, they will be heartily sick of the bargain. However divided lmblic sentiment outside of Republicanismn may be in this State, and other Southern ones on this issue at present it cannot be de nied, that politics are working back in the purely democratic grove, proving unoontmvertibly the tact, that there is new as betore the war, only two par ties, and that in the event of the elec tion of Mr. Greeley, the democrats ex pect and intend to control his admin. istration. Georgia is a straight out democra tic State, bigoted, sad uncompromis ing to the biter end, refusing even the assistance of the Liberal party, and only-granting them rmaission to act with them, instead oa they the Democrats aeitbg with the Liberals. As the Georgia democrate act, so will the democrats of every State act, whenever they think they have the power, and here is tlh opinion of one the leading papers of the State, as to the course in behooves them to take, and which they intend to take should they have an opportunrity of doing so. "Mr. Sumner makes a very broad mistake when he insinuates that al though Greeley mayr be elected, and owe his election to the Demec:ratic party, still the members ;e that party will in no manner control his Admin istration. amaner admits Greeley may take ifemocrata into his Administra tion, but they will be taken as Repub licans at heart. it is idle to suppose that Greeley can or will reject the counsels of those by whose votes he was elected, or that D)m.ecrts will ease to he Democrats in say sense of the word because .they kave voted for Greeley. Far from it. The Democratic party will after the election reaem bie its cohorts, claim s veoes ni shap ing the characterof Omesyles Admiu istration, and by virtue of their former support and strength of numbers com pel a recognition of this important 'trght. Greeley, i the event of his election, will be toreed to rely upon the Democcatic party to support the measures of h's Administratien, and snuch sqpport will not be extended unu less these measm s ame in acoord with Dewnrtcat pi ncpl.

A. D. 1872, and of the inde. Illudenlce ot the United States the ninety-seventh, By the Governor: H. C. WARMOTH. Y. A WOODWARD, Assistant Secretary of State. lt Our neighbor and cotelnporary the "Louisiana Democrat," hav'iug been invested with, or assumed the role of organ, to the D)emocratic or Liberal party, which ever designation pleases or suit sit beat, of this vicinity, and 'w ing ourselves diaunatrically opposed to it as far as State politics at anL rate are concerned, it is possible a rather probable, tlmt we may have to differ widely from its views, express our de sent and try to demonstrate the falla cy of its arguments, and the danger to the country at large, in the saeess of the political party and policy which it supilortM and advocates. In doing this, however, we hope to avoid and intend to eschew unless forced, upon us any bitterness, personality or acri monyr believing as we have lefore statated, that every lone has a right to entertain his owna opinion, in political and civil matters, and to proclaim and defend theta in a wmoderate and unir ritating way. Tun Feusio TICKET.-We said last week that we did not consider it necessary to give the names of the Candidates on the Democratic and Lilwlrl fusioan ticket but on rllection We consider it best to do so, and it will Is. seen that however desirous a large lportion of the Liberal party were to have a truly liberal ticket nominated and placed in the field they were out generaled in the State Convention as they were in our parish mass meeting here, and only one known libezd re putbeai an nd one colored ma placed on the list the leauder being an ultra old line )eaaunrat of the purest type.

ANoZL.-bAs we annoumnced in our last issue, this gentleman has ar rivedl and opened an ofee in the Ex change Hlotel, and is daly giving our citizens proof ot his great skill, in his protlesion. Bad teeth or none at all, need zhow no longer be an irreparable Imistortute, for you can have them re jmired or repilae d, to be as good or better thath new, or rather rthe old ones, as is the latter instanoe agt certnainly they will never ate qain. Dr. Atagt4rs complete sets upper and tower, are marvels of beauty and efi ciency, as ourselves and othera here are ready to demonstrate from aotual experience of work done. A FAST T'n.,-We observe the last few days that that old and 4e complhhed dispenser otf liquid refresh ments, Levi. Stewart has shown his tamailiar and smihng face behind the bar counter ot Goodman's well stock ed saloon. Goodman's liquors are so gead Iand he is popular that sometimes a thirsty mortal has had to wait his ta. longer than wasm pleasant, but thib will so longer be the case as with the efeicient assistanee he laa now se cured all customers will be esgsed in double quicktime.
