Inst, the )emocrats of St. Martin began to rally in town to give a grand and cordial re ception to Mr. Andrew Price and party of distinguished speakers who were an nounced to address the people of this pa rish on that day. About 12 o'clock 200 mounted men proceeded down town headed by tihe Breaux Bridge brass band to meet the standard bearer of the Third District and other distinguished gentle men wh*, accompany Mr. Price in the campaign. Tile procession formed a file on each side of the road, and as the dis tinguished gentlemen passed through they were given a grand and enthusias tic ovation. They took tle head of tile procession and marched to tile grove where a stand had been erected for the occasion, while the cannon was boIoming forth with his iron mouth, a hurrah for Price and party. At the place of the meeting there was a congregation of ladies and pedestrians awaiting tihe opening of tihe meeting. On the arrival of tile procession at the grove the splakers ascended t he stand and tihe formality of organizing by electing a President, Vice-Presidents and other of ficialsand the umeeting formally opened by the presentation of liou. Andrew Price, who addressed the meeting. his speech was a beautiful one and left a strong inmpression upon tile mind of his hearers. ir., Price was followed by Lieutenant Governor Clay Knoblock, of Lafourche, who spoke in French, and de lighted his audience by his funny compariscons. lhon. N. C. Blanchard, congressman from thie Pourth lhistrict followed and made a lengthly address, and touched sev eral points -,f interest. The next slpwaker introduced was T. S Wilkinsonm ongressman from the First district. His address was to the point, and goodl, and was highly appreciated by I tie audience. A call front the public was thlen made r for lion. ('has. helhmllt mer, of Breaux I Bridge, who came forward, and however not prepared for an address, only made I a few remarks in Frencl:h, after which tie t fmeeting was adjouned. The speakers dined at the Castillo Ho- . tel, and at half past six oclohk departedt ror New Iberia to take the night train for t Lafayette. Show Your Reasons. o The meeting of the Parish Executive c 'onmmittee called at Breaux Bridge last ti unlday, which failed fit want of a quo- Ii um, was we are informed, for the pur- - sase of asking Governor Nicholls to re nove M.r. A. V. Fleming, who by the way c s a memler of that committee, as Re- ri urninug Officer, and to recommend a can- a, lidate to the Governor to fill the office. We were exceeding surprised to learn inch a report, as every one knows, Mr. rleming is an honest and upright man a ndl as good a democrat as any in the I arish, and better than many of those B rho think they are immaculates. The el Dnly reason we can see to ask tihe rearov Li of M1r. Fleming is that he is too honest w nd cannot be made the tool of some a reedy politicians who would like per- st aps to control 3Mr. Fleming in his offi lal capacity to suit their own purposes. ci We do not know, and have not the al east idea of who the agitators of this move are, and we do not believe that the " lemocratie Parish Committee will take t my such more under consideration gainst one of its members, to please and B nit few politicians, who will never be ir atistfled until they hold all the offices nd control thie parish at their own free is nill and reign supreme. .t The lDemocratic Committee shlould not rI et their action be influenced by, anti in he interest of a few, they represent the emocracy of the whole parish, and their uty is to consider in all matters, the in 'rest of tile whole LDemocracy of tile he arish. The dlemocracy of time parish be ave no reason, to demand the removal of til Ir. Fleming as Returning Officer, and E he committee, it any such motion is ill sade, should reject it without considera- W ion. cr The Greatest Anti-Periodic. Known to the medical profession is quinine, the base of whith is the ('alisaya bark of conmmerce. This bark is gathered by the natives of South Amercan countri es and exported to all parts of the would for the manutactu: eof quinine. "The se rvant is not greaterthan his master." and it stands to reason that the extract has not the curative powers of the original. There is nonmore effective remedy for ma larial disorders known to the world than Dr. Westnaoreland's Calisaya Tonic witch contains a sufficiency of the purest bark and all disorders of the system ari sing fronm a diseased liver readily sue umb to its influence. This great medi cine is for sale by T. J. Labbe. A Foolish Action. The Republican meeting which was announced totake place on Tuesday the 20th inst., did not materialize for the reason, it is said, that the Re gulators notified all the negro leaders that if they attended any meeting, it would be at their peril. Bands of Regulators are also reported visiting the counatry during the night, fring their weapons in the air, and thus created a general panic among the blacks and Tuesday, the day fixed for the mee ting, not a single negro was to be seen in town. About twelve oclock a band of about 550 or 70 Regulators made their appear ance in town and proceeded to the court House square, where they remained ul til about sun down. The Regulators in this parish have male some serious blunders, but we be lieve their last demonstration is the nreatest mistake they ever made. It is generally believed and admitted that Major Price has the advantage over the Republican in this contest, and would rohably be elected without any cause if coute't, while the bold and stupid le noonstation made in this parish uarnishes all the ground necessary ,or a contest by the Republican audidate in case of his defeat. The Regulators should have considered hat the national admninistration is in the Lands of the Republicans, and both Hou es of Congress are also in the hands of he Republicans, and a contest on the lightest ground will be enough to over hrow the Democratiec candidate if re urned electced. But we are inclined to elieve the Regulators do not care about Ir. Price. Whether he goes to ('ongress r not is the least of their trouble, and heir only object in view, is to keep the arish in such a state terror, as to make t an easy job to place their leaders in ilce. We believe this campaign should be unducted by the Democracy, in the in !rest of the Democracy and not by Regu itors in the interest of a limited few -the leaders.

SI Several of our cotton pllanters are pre paring themselves to use Paris green as soon as the caterpillar ma:kes his appear annce. but we would not be surprised to see the crops of sonie planters entirely --cleaned up" for the lack of energy. It only costs a few cents to spread or sprin kle Paris green on ain acre of cotton and very little labor. The process is very simple. No man should lay and see his crop destroyed when it is in his power at a small cost and little exertion to prevent It, and save his crop; the labor of a whole year. Use Paris green and save your cotton. The sawmill of Messrs. Guerinuere and Broussard commenced operations Mon day, and will probably run for the bal ance of the year. This will be cheering news to many of our citizens who for the last few months were compelled to send elsewhere for lumber, and when only a tew hundred feet were needed the freight was so high that they had to do without it. 'T'hose who are in need of lumber of any kind and dimension can send their orders to the gentlemen na. iled above and they will give you entire satisfaction in quality and price. The prelimary examination of the ne groes Implicated in the shooting of Mr. IC. . D. Dchamp, which was to take place Tuesday, was sent before the grand jury. The charge against Celestin lionoat was which drawn. The other accused through their counsel James Simon, waived ex amination, therefore noteetumony was taken. When Celestin Honoah was dis charge there happened to he quite a crowd of Regulators around the court house, whose appearance scared this big preacher who refused to go out, and ask ed to remain in jail, which request was granted to him. The bond of the others is fixed at $1(0. Increase of Crime. The Shreveport Times gives the fol lowing very wise thoughts on the in crease of erinie which we heartily en dorse: "Newspaper are indulging in theories as to the increase of crime. The laws, if interpreted with common sense and administered fairly but vigorously, will deter criminals in their evil propensities. The trouble lies in the disinucliatism of respectable citizens to perform jury ser vice and to legal technicalities, which too often operate a release when the cri minal has been found guilty. The manu dlin sentiment that makes a hero of the coldsblooded and cowardly assassin, is responsible for the increase of crime. More sympathy for the victim and a higher regard for law and order will operate a wholesome reform. In cases of murder, legal hangings rob the erimi nals of all hope of escape or release from imprisonment thro.egh a pardon. Cri minals are persuaded by the terms of the Iaw.--Baton Rouge Advocate. A writer in the Lafayette Advertiser in commenting upon the recent lynching of Felix Keys very truthfully says From past events it is safe to say that if Felix Keys had escaped the gallows md been sent to the penitentiary, in six months from the time he arrived at Ba ten Rouge, one half of the mob who hung tim would have signed a petition for his ardon; because there was a foul murder committed on our streets a few years ago ind the man sent to the penitentiary, inll some of the very men who hung Fel x Keys signed a petition for the pardon f that murderer. Felix Keys deserved o be hung. but he was safe in one of the east jails in the State and should have seen handled by the law. The new law requires the different •roprietors to work the roads along their ront. In a short time, the Police Jury mill appoint road overseers, who will dir et when and how they are to be worked. Like all new laws, it will reqlulre some ime before it gets to working smoothly. then it does, the roads will Is eomewhat ike they were in the old days. Heavy ane wagons in the wet weather destroy irt roadls about as fast as they can be tade. The planters ought to be eonsi crate in this matter. Of course, the oads are public, and no one can prevent heir legitimate use. But we snbmit to he owners of the wagons, that as the ifferent proprietors will hereafter have t keep up their roads, they will save a iod deal of exaspieration, if they will do heir hauling in lry weather. It doesnt't a yto haul in wet wesather an'sway. t. Mary Banner.
