The ToC.rin of «.>r.
A ynimodest looking little Ipr itaman tfm :a.sigtlCed to tlh advertising columns of tihe evening papers and signed by Johnl McEu`ry,phliili and Ample, callk upon ..slk titizei' f 1f tile pari:h' ot Or(lca::-. bet wt .n tii ag;o of eighteen and tort y-ti tý" report forthiwith for ihit t duty.I *"This looks relbtli,.i" It i:ll I noticed, and no doubt appr,,tr:l. y, that no dUltinetionl on ac-'',;It of race, color or previous cotanlui,,ln i.' made in this calt. f'r :te a"m. Hence, it will be a very Itrre ;ar.i of martial forces. Ttletall does ii,: state what is the naiture O the dItr . to be assigned to tlj"iiihlttrledi hosts, but as. those under _-£lght lten and over forty-five, as -1t1 as the females, are excepted. it looks to us as though there were about to be an onslaugh made oi the wonien a;ind children and old mien. "Person having arms will have the pr-fer ence," which means, we suppo.se, that there will be other duties he side fighting, else it would he dis tinetly stated that no person \\ io could not raise a fusee ot some sort need apply. All this parade and pinup of wa'1". on paper, is made for the alleedt. purpose of :reinstating three or hour gentletirae in judicial positions whoI have been pronounced byw col'mpe tent authority to be no juldges, or whose valuable1 services have been dispeus' d . itll by ther State. Now, let the issue be mnadei lI here. Let 31eEnery cal out his militia, and if hlie has iiuie ,' in this busin-s.A than , Glcuatl ,.er did in calling spirits fr-om Ihe v:i " " deep, let him set them to wk-.. iFor the past te l da:iy. the ebett, earnest aippeals have Inetn ltatl; -. the yontg aletl of this c it v to tlIro( as privates under the i-i'in hi a,; ners. They were tokld that, all the officers had been appolinted flroii among the "best peJ l," illld all they wanted to completete armyn was enough privates to do 11s tight ing, stand guard, an4 be shot, if necessary, for the glory of Lounisi ana in general and the Fusion cause in particular. These appeals have been met with the contempt they deserved, but got no omn. And nOW resort is had to pro(lamlation. Mr. McEnery will iin d out :at I- it that there are no persons in :thin city who wish to go out and fht1t the Radicals, though doabtles Iherze are thsisands who are hurniing to have others do it. For in the first place, these Radical are n,'inlrousi and determined, and not ofthe kind of stuff to be drivenr off their own ground unless they know the reason why. Again, it is generally sup posed that behijnd theam stand cer tain blue-coated bo3 s in serriedl ranks, whose actions are abl)tlltel* conrolledl by a elear-leaded, just mninded mant in \V shingtoni-a nmin who has on more than one occasion proved that he hna no nonasense in him, and who has beeni twice cheat ed out ol the vote of this State once by a system of ;rnuta:l terrIor isn, aid l oottaer time lyv 'lori:ni zed trand." It is to realp the friit:s of the last iiamled wrong that this call for the militia is nlow made, and it will be the duty tf thll State anid police forces to ait-t a1iitl tbhe-k it. Or if they 1fal from any cause they imay call in tlhar allies.-[ Y. 0. Republica,,. This is an extract from an editori al in the Shreveport Times: We have heard it said that New Orleans did not taror railroad con. nection with Shreveport l)(.ause tlta latter was regardled, in some sort, a. a rival-as very much of the \We tern produce brought to this mar ket is shipped direct from St. Louis It ooeurs to us that this is a very narrow view of the case. It a cor rect one, it would be, by a l)lrit3- ol reasoning, imlpolitic for Shreveplaorl to desire railroad connection witl this great .'rival." That we earnest lydesire such connection is a mat ter beyond all question. The tradt relations of our merehants withl those of New Orletas have evem been of a pleasant character, antl ii only needs that the latter shall offei equal facilities with otber cities t< insure a monopoly ofthe ttrade o this region. As it is, some of on leading merchants purchase excin sively there, and, ot course, ar prompted to do so by the convictio tha it is as good, ia not a better mar ket than any other. -- - __ Says the Dubuque Telegraph ofe recent date: An lowan man named Carr, O Borlington, has gone to New Os leans to negotiate lfor the sbippina ot Iowa corn to Euirope.

THE ASSAS~I'TED TExAS RE ,tPB rS8NTLTL.-The a sasiniation has been stated by telegraph ot Hon. aiLo·ui* Fanktee, o( Texas, on the gnineteenth instanat. It was one of the moset appalling outrage~s and i bold-blooded murders ever perpetra. t ted asywiero. Mr., Frankee was . learihsl the House to attend a corm Ii mittee meetinlg in the Land of81ce, it "a te capeitlJ, tand while descenlld ing tb- flight of seeps, was struck by ~bi murderter and kPocked to the .

SucceCbssul Imumlrratioin utcr prise. Can not the cxamnpile of Mr. Shakcklford, mentioned in lihe sub- vo joined article from the Galveston of cs, he imunitated in Lottisiana t it We have had the pleasure of a ti call from Mr. Levi Shackelford, who erl has wen engaged for over a year rv past in britnging immigrants front is thet Southern States, chieyti from th .labaum. He arriv d by yesterda. 's al steamcur with about one hundred st. more. Ife informs us t hat he has now ex brougrit over about 30110 men womlen ant children, all of Sbhom are fBrm- t era and mechanics, anud are, though at generally poor, industrious hard- h. working people, and are a great ac quisitiou to our State. It is sow do thirteen mouths since Mr- Shackel- of ford undertook this important en terprise. His plan of operation is as tl follows: He first contmacts with the ti tarmers of Texas to deliver them a fo certain number of laboring men of good character with their familie. tl The former, on his part, agrees to t furnish a certain number.of acres, I say twenty, of good farom land, one tl half to be plated by,3 the imtfligrant Dl in ctorn and the other hall in cotton, tl the formuer to turnish a comfortable house to each family, also teams f i and all necessary farming inmple- F nlenuts to make a crop ; also feied for the teams during the cropping sea- L son ; pays all blac:ksmith hills, anud fumrnishe-s tle laborers with lrovsiou t during the first year. The crop is di- a, videcd equally Ittweent the furumer tl the laborer, and the latter pays the fo. mcr out of his hall for the provis I ions furnished, and for any advances , it made to pay his passage here. These it advances are made by Mr. Shackel- tl fotrd before coming, for which the immigrant gives his note, payable tl to the party for whom he contracts to farm on shares, andl to whom Mr. thackeltord turns over the notes, 11 receiving fronm him the money ad- tl Vaneed. This plan has thus far prov- n ed to be very successful, only two b or three among all the immigrants it he has brought having failed to comi ply with their contracts, and take it up their rnotes from the proceeds of o their shafr of.the first crop.. d The value of Mr. Shackelford's en' it terprise may be understood whetn h we bear in mind that under his con- e tracts some 15,000 or 20,000 acres I t will beadded to our cultivated lands, and the amount of our cotton crop increased by some 4000 or 5000 bales. t There are certainly very few, if a any, private citizens who have done so nimuch to add to the wealth, pope- t lation antd p)oIperity ot the State. t Indeed, we doubt mluclih % hether he has not done for the State as much as the immigration bureau itself, d though we can bear wituess that t Ssonme of the officers ot that bureau have labored faithftuly and zealous Ily, while we comnsider the salaries paid to others as but little better - than so much money thrown away. ,But men who have labored as Mr. - Shiackelford has done, without re ward, eminently deserve the thanks of the citizens. D is a short article we find floatiting around on the sea of journalism that t ianny men should paste in their hats and ladies on their bhninets' if room i can be. fumuct on" the little duck ofa thing. " These people, liable to quick ! t emotions. with sense, but not rea It soft showing their nature in their a colteni..ance, aid oftetn nt-rilig re pose and frieiidship by unlwarran ted snspicion, are found in all our cities. Let them ~read anud profi8t by t this. S " There are some people, yes, e umany people, always looking out a for slights. They cannot carry on i the daily intercourse of the falhnily without some offense is designated. Is If they meet an acquaintaice on the n street who happlen to be pre-occu I. ielu with business, they attribute 1. hisabstricetion in some mode person is al to themlselves, andt take umbrage if accordingly. They lay on others the :h fact of their irrittbility. A tit of in sf digestion makes them see imlx rtin u- euce in every one they come in con r- tact with. Innocent piersons, who nd never dre4mne(l of giving offense, are t- n~onished to find some unfortuniate ts word or momentary taciturnity mis Ie taken ftr an insult. To asty the least, the habit is unfortunate. It is far I- wiser to take the more charitable vg view of our fellow-heings, and not r. snppout a slight is intended unlesslc at the neglect is open and direct. Af g t!er all, too, life takes its hnes in a id great degree from the color of our mitd. If we are flank and generouR, thie worki treats as kindly. If, on E- the contrary, we are suspicions, m men learn to be cold and cautions n. to us. Let a person geIt the repulta le tion of boing touchy, and every of body is under more or le I coDstra:nt, 4 and ma this way the chance of an a. inagtmarv effeuse is vastly inreas as ed."

A Message l'ihrt Means Ac- St. lion. According to the organ of the re- No. volutionists in this city, the message of President Grant means just what it denies. That is to say,the declara tion of an intention to uphold Gov ernor Kellogg and suppress McEne- tior ry by the President, means that he i is afraid of McEnery, and is anxious mit that Congregs. shall relieve him from all dtangec froml that redonbtalle up- w start. This s is iesuring the federal sh executive in the 1Fusion half bushel. the McEniery spreads his messages not aroundl like a big fog, and they last about as long and are just as forci- Fe tile. He sends out his proclamations, and they fall upon ns as the gentle dew, giving and receiving the wages of wonderment, but they never amount to anything. Now, because their bogus executive does these things, and is applauded to the echo for doing them by people who have j ruined themselves by too much talk, the Picayune pretends to believe that General Grant is guilty of the same nonsense. It will find out to the contrary after the fouth day of Si March, for we assume it to besa fact B3 that Congress will do nothing in the premises; and we know it to be a fact that the government will do Bi nometlhing when the national legisla r ture has almost directed it to do so Lyv not moving in the matter itself. The action of Congresas is, or will be, to this effect, that the policy already adopted in relation to Louisiana is r the best that could have been, devis ed for the occasion, and there is no q way of altering it that would amend it. The people of Louisiana have involved themselves in trouble' and the best method of curing the evil is to let it wear itself out. When - the men who organize deliberate plans to cheat their way into office, as was.done in Louisiana, find that their schemes and speculations fail - them, they will then cease to rely i npon rascality, and the nation w'ill be annoyed with their aplpeals no S longer. This is what Congress will F say, in effect, to the President when e it adjourns withouthavin disposed of the Louisiana case, and the Presi dent tells us in his message what he intends to do. The bogus affair that has no title to authority in thie State, except the impudence of its origina ltors, will be required to sulside. General Grant means just what he 0 says. He is putting himself on re 0 cord as to what he intends to do in the event Conigress does not act, and as there is no probability that e Congress will move in the matter, there is evp-ry probability. in fact el there is a certainty, that the nation e al authority will put a stop to the h Fusion nonsense after the fourth , day of next March. We-need this in t terference. and we heed it promptly U and forcibly because the State is suffering orom the prese it unsettled condition ofaffairs.-[N. ). a epubli.
