MR. ANOUEW CURRIE AND THE

an eamest prota agais the adop

and Benjsmin's) report recommend
ing the purchase of Mr. Cu rieds lad '
for $1 for a eemetary site, and
in the course of it argument inei
dentally mentioned the name of that
gentleman. Evesy woman, man end
child who read or heard of it, snd
was poswtsed with sense above im
beaility, knew that no reteetion was
ceast upon 0M: Or is at all, and that 1
the article was directed against
Maura. Toombs and Benjamin in1
their oical capacity is public cr- 1

ishment of the ballot box at Jewells,
brought on a conte3t in which we, as
chairman of the executive committee,
might have been a very important
witness. A day or two before the
S ate convention was to meet at
daton Rouge, the anty-lottery State
committee met at New Orleans, and
Yrr. Cridies, doubtless thinking that
our testimony before this committee
might be vey essestial in preparing
our side for the coming fight on the
Caddo delegation, offered to pay one
balt of our expenses if we would go
with him, asking, with that smile of
his which means much or nothing,
as he chooses, if we didn't think that
it would be beneficial to our health.
This, b3oause this writer had been
i for about a week previous. As
we had neither the wealth nor the
wonderful resources of Mr. Cur.ie,
and having had our business prac
tically closed for the period of our
ee sickness ( I'u Pnocrzes was not then
ain existenee), we felt unable at that
t time, to spend money for a mere
pleasure trip; and being neither a
: member of the State committee nor
E a delegate to the convention, there
baeing noth'sg obligatory ous to go,
d we asooptcd Y. Curri's proposi
P tion, beleiving it was offered from
,s patriotie motives (assuredly he had
o me partierlar fiendship for this
ºd writer), to fr,'ther the interest of the
id anti-lotter.,- eause. 'As a - per
. sonal matter we would not have lis
at temed to such a pxoposition and no
d one knows it better than Mr. Carrie
Shimsel. But we will now tell some
athig about that trip, for now most
* esatainly the bars to delicacy have
t been thrown lwn by Mr. Cuom.
