Onesof ti brightest hghts of I
the century" has at last gone out, C
the great hero of the Lost ('ause c
has flnally fallen, Jefferson Davis
has been gathered to his lathers. t
Ilis ashes rest in peace in a south
ern city, and millions of our loyal c
citizens are ready to bow at his
sepulcher and do him homage. L
The lamentations of the South are
heard all o'er the land, and she a
mourns as she has never mourned c
before. There was perhaps, never t
in all the history or the world, a a
man whose death brought about v
anch sorrow and regret as this s
distinguisbed soldier, patriot and t1
For a quarter of a century the
people of the South, and all lor t
ers of civil liberty everywhere, a
had honored and revered this c
great man. We loved him for his I
high character, for his great wis- I
(dom and for the Justness of the
eaus he h espoused. The prine'. 1
pies for which he fought. and for s
which he was disfranchised and I
branded a traitor and a rebel, are "
as dear to the Southern heart is a
the otlspring is to the parent who c
gave it birth. Then, ask not s
wherefore all this wailing and all t
these lamentations. The heroic a
deeds of the grand old man are t
embalmed in the hearts of his
eountrymien and will live there,
"As long as hearts have passions,
As long as life has woes."
The foul mouth enemy of this
dear Southland, the narrow heart '
ed ingrate in whose bosom still
burn the tres of hatred and see
tionalismn, may scoff at oar pre
tensions, and call the ceremonies
that have been bad over the chiefl
tain's grave, a falso sentimentali
ty, but weo are sincere jn our con
victiso and are joined to our idol. '
The veterans who wore the
gray and fought for Southern
rights, Southier liberties and
eteresl principles, all :ear testa
mesy t the unperiebable virtues
at the departed here. II the
death of the Prssident of the Con- C
federsey, the life of one of the '
greatest and grandest of heroes,
"We tell his dooe withat a sigh;
'Fee te Freedem's noew, ad Fame's
On of ietiw fhmortal ames
That were not brr to die."

ecl there, hut we have never
thought that the blamne resled
upon President Nicholson. We
are infoirmed that the board of
directors are to meet soon and
take same action towards electing
a new president. As lfor our-part
we would like to see ('ol. Nichol
son succeed himself, if he should,
desire to hold the position another
term. Col. Nicholson was raised
in this parish and stands high at
the home of his boyhood. We re
gard him as one of the best dis
ciphlnarianp we ever knew, and
having spent a few years under
him as pupil, we think we know
a Ihereof we speak. As above stated
we cannot believe that he is in
any man:ner blamable for the
University not coming up to the
expectation of the people. The
affairs of the school are in a better
condition now than when he :as.
sumed control,and we are inclined
to the opinion that it wold be
against the interest of Institution
to elect a new man.

On another page of this paper
will be found the story of a con
vict, concerning his treatment by
Capt. Sanchez, who has charge of
a squad of convicts in Catahoula
parish, which If true, is enough to
bring shame and disgrace upon
the entire state for permitting
such treatment as this to her con
victs, The story or the convict
as related to a TimeosDemocrat
reporter, gives an account of one
of the most cruel and inhuman
whippings we ever read of. He
states that it is not frequent that
such whlippi.gs as this are ad
ministered at thi,| camp. It be
comes the duty of the proper
authorities to inquire into this
affair and lf the charges he true to
suspepd this cruel man in charge
of the camp in Cataboula parish,

jury, sad that punishment com.

authorities have not denied it,
this captatn has committed an
offense more grave and revolting
to hsmanity, than til'e one for
which the convict was serving his
sentence. All persons who violate
thelaw should be punished in
accordance with the penalty for
the rne, but it was never in

persons who have ben convicted,
should suffer the sentence of the
