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

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.

of its energetic owner, Dr. Ji. 8. Fish.
One of the most important of these is

lower part of the ld ice depot into a
large, lofty and elegant room, to which
has bees added, by taking down the

has also put up one of poor Flanmery's
splendid billiard tables, merely at

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

sad also his laudable sad deserving of

And the end may possibly be, that
like the boy, they will be heartily sick

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.
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

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.
