For want of space, we defer some
unpleasant talk till our next issue.
Speaking of Independents the St.
Landry Democrat says: "Beware of
'wolves in sheeps' clothing !"
We would suggest to the Meridion
al that it either take the Democratic
ticket down from its mast-head, or
cease its unjust and unwarranted
thrusts at the heads of the party.

The knife-grinder in Mr. Canning's
"Auti-Jacobin," when asked for his

GOsING FOU LOUItIaa
Every indication points to a fresh
onslaught upon our State by the Re
publican party. They can't afford to
let it go just yet. The solid South
must be broken if possible, and Lou
isiana is the first among the phalanx
that affords anything like an opportu
nity. Speakers are to be sent in our
midst so it seems and Kellogg too is
coming with "barrels of money."
We have no objection to jeither.
The appearance of Blaine and com
pany will only serve to arouse our 1
people to the necessity of coming to
gether to resist this attack on our
As to Kellogg's barrels of money
why we'll take those in too as a resti
tution in part of his stealings and of 1
those of his pals.
Poor Louisiana has had a hard time
in coming out of the woods; eleven
years of radical rule, and everybody
knows so well what its effects have
been, that it is superfluous to describe
them; added to which came the yel
low fever epidemic of last year. And
now-right after the September hur
ricane-borne by the frozen winds of
the North, we are to have in our
midst not pestilence, but far worse, a
lot of merciless and cold-blooded cbn
spirators, who will not hesitate in
using any means to throttle our peo
ple once more, in order that the Hayes
usurpation may be continued after
They believe that the Democrats
are so disunited that a stealthy and
sudden attack may be successful at
this time, and like a lot of midnight
house-breakers they've come to see
whether we have forgotten that "eter
nal vigilance is the price of liberty."
It will be well for these adventur
ous excursionists to know that the
Democratic party, or rather all the
people who have some love for Loui
siana, intend to keep the scallawag
and the carpet-bagger out of our pub
lic affairs. To fall back into their
clutches at this time would be
worse than death itself. Conse
quently the greater the danger 'the
more will all our good citizens rally.
In a word we want peace, order and
freedom for every man, blue, black
or white, but we will repel the polit
ical buccaneers at all hazards. Down
with Beattie, the renegade! is the
cry that we suggest until the victory
shall have been secured.
The Summit, Miss., Sentinel very
sensibly remarks, that our merchants
should quit dealing with the city of
Cincinnati until the papers of that
rotten city cease to slander and villi
fy our people. Some parties urge
that the papers there do not reflect
the sentiments of the people, but the
point is not well taken, for a commu
nity will not long sustain a paperthat
fails to reflect its sentiments. The
people of Cincinnati cannot be such
fools as to believe tihe lies that are
published in their midst every day,
and if they know them to be such they
are recreant to all the trusts of human
integrity and morality in snstfaining
the guilty perpetrators, and should be
held responsible. No, merchants of
the South, the people of Cincinnati
despise you and delight to see you
slandered. "Self preservation is the
first law of nature," and it behooves
our people of all shades and classes to
turn their trade into other channels,
and show a Cincinnati drummer the
door when he has the cheek to enter
domicils or business houses.
The result of every election in Cin
cinnati shows that that city hasn't a
single sympathetic throb for the long
oppressed people of the South.
The fight is now hand to hand and
hilt to hilt, and the most tellingthrust
will be--at the glittering blood money
in their pockets.
Let the papers all over the South
take this matter in hand and keep) it
before the people until a thorough and
complete revolution is worked. This
is merely the opening shot for the

BATON ROUGE, Oct. 29, 1879.
W. L. McMillen, New Orleans, La.:
The mass meeting here was a grand d
success; about three times as large as Is
the Wiltz meeting. Beattie's speech 14
was unanswerable and very favorably fj
received. He spoke two hours, and b
was enthusiastically cheered by white -I
and colored. Kennedy and Burwell- t
gave complete satisfaction. Appro- n
priate resolutions were passed. Be- ti
attie is perfectly satisfied with his a
meeting here. The party is in good e
spirits. . a
The truth is that the meeting was J'
called for 10 o'clock, when owing to
the scarcity. of listeners it was post- tl
poned till 2, when not over two hun- s
dred people gathered around the
stand. Many of these were Demo- e
crats who had come to hear what the v
scallawagian canvassers had to say. c

The Pierce rounded to, tai alongside of,

about five years old, and the young- I
eat at the breast, were huddling 1
around and symathizing with the in
jured woman who had just been ra
vished.by six brutal andvillanous ne
groes. The secondrels had first shot
the woman's husband, three buck
shot having struck the back of his 1
head stunning, but not otherwise in
juring him. Thinking they had kill
ed their victim they completed their
work of deviltry, plundered the boat,
cut her adrift, and went away leaving
the supposed dead man on the riter
bank. Among the articles carried off
by the scoundrels were a rifle, a shot
gun and $62 in money.
Captain Watson, of the Pierce,
sent for the wounded man, took the
boats in tow and left them at Law
horn's Landing, some distance furth

the matter and were at last accounts
endeavoring to find a trace of the
perpetrators of the diabolical act.
