The Republicans have at last Ii
done a supremely idiotic thing. el
They have nominated for President, i t
James 0(. Blaine, of Maine, and to
for Vice PreKident, Jno. A. L.og. i
of Illinois. Mr. Blaine is the man'
with whom .we have to deal. I.ogan ,
is a bloody shirt shrieker, at all
times, and on all occa'ions, and c
can be dismissed with that record.
Blaine is a different sort of a man.
He is ready enough to wave the
bloody shirt at the proper time,
but he Is not all the time flaunting a
it, and it is probable, that that sub-L
ijet will appear only incidentally in
the campaign. Mr. Blaine's weak
point is his record, which is a sort
of a charcoal sketch, in that most
of the marks he has made. are
black marks. In the next few
months, Mr. Blaine's misdeeds
will be Ilioned -from" Maine to
California, and from the Canada
line, to the Gulf of Mexico. Hiss 0
own party will contain many of his
bitterestassailants. The New York
Timne ha already announced th
it will nt pport him, as has the
Bostoe'Coumerncial Advertises. .

There is a popular superstition, t
to the ets that there is ncbh a law t
. in this Parish. It is possible that ti
there is such a law, but Talluah
derives very little benefit from it.

are zealously guarded and the stock t
herded away from it, but a clild's t
life or a womans fears are not con- a
sidered and the town is turned in- t
to a pasture. What is everyone's ?
business is no one's business, and ,
I the evil is tolerated: i
Just here is an argument in favor t
of incorporating the town. If the I
town was incorporated it would be t
the busimness of some one to pre. i

I said four years ago, in accepting Ij
the nomination: "Knowing as I do fu
I therefore, from fresh eperience, how i
Igreat the difference is between gliding ie

Such work of renovation, after many B
years of misrule; such reform o sys.

rrange~r ,n :hIq.i'hle of the- ref, wm- to F
whicah, ac a :private..itiz,.u. I hwal given
three years of my life. I aceeltted the
nominaZtihn for the presidency in 1-'6
bec.anse of a general convytctiou that my
caudidacy would beat pre4ent the
issue of reform which the Demlo
ratlic majority of poop.e desired. to
have worked out in th,. Federal
ie,\nl.lilUent as it hatd been in that of I
the State of New York. I belic d that
I had etrenyth enough then to renvate
the aduinistrttuon of the tivernruentI
of the United States, and at the close of,
my term to hand over the great trust to
a successor faithful to the lame policy.
Though anxious to receive the repose
of private life, I nevertheless actetd upon
the idea that every power is a trnut and
involves aduty. In reply to the address
of the committee communicating my
nomination I depicted the difliculties of PE
the undertaking, and likened my fee.l
ina in engaging in it to tlhese of a sol
dier entering battle, but I did not with
hold the entire consecration of my pow
ers to the public service. Twenty years
of continuous maladministration under
the demoralizing iunfluences of intestine
war and of bad finance have infected
the whole government system of the
United States with cancerous growths
of false constructions and corrupt prac
tices. Powerful classes have acquired
pecuniaryinterests in oficial abuses and F
the moral standards of the people have
been impaired. To redress these evils
is a work of great diieulty sad labor,
and cannot be aecomplished without
th$ most enaegetic sad efcient sad
personal actionon thepart of the chief
executive of the republic. The eanvass
and administration which it is derived
that I should undertake would embrace I
a peaiod of marly five years. Three
yearn of experience in the endeavor to
reform the municipal government of the P
city of New York anad two years of ex- I
perience in renovating the admainistra
tioa of the 8tate of New York have
made me familiar with the requirements
of such work. At the present time the
consideration which induced my action
in 180havehbecome imperative. I ought
not to assume the task which I have not
the physical strength to carry through.
To reform the ad ministration of the fed
eral govemamemt; to realise my own idrea
sad to fulfl the just expectatione of the
people would indeed warrant, as they
,ould alome cempensate, the sacrfices
which the undertaklng wWuld4avelve;
but in my colition of advancing yemu
and declining strength I feel o aurm- u
dace of my ability to aecompliah thee
objects. I am, therefore, constrained
to say definitely that I cannot now ai
sme thelabers of a adminlstration o
of a canvass, undervaluing in no wise
that the best gift of heaven, occasion
and' power is sometimes bestowed upon
a mere individual, to communicate an 7
impulse for good. Grateful beyond all v
weLds to my fellow-oouetrymem who
would asiga such a hemllet fuaetios
to me, I am commled by the reflection wb
that neither the Democratic party nor Co
Republican, for whose future that party ri
is the best guarantee, is now or ever can
be dependent upon any one man fur
theaiz.mpsemsm tpgrein thnMe path of P>
noble destiny. Having gives to their be
welfare whatever of hitltltt £b strength ah
I possessed or could borrow from the -
future, and having reached the term of
my capacity for such labors, as their
welfare now dellands, I but submit to ma
the will of God in deeming my public 1
career forever closed. ing
