the dark waters flow on.
STHE STATES, Major Hearsey's new
daily is before us. It is a handsome
six-column paper well printed, filled
with carefully selected news and lit
erary matter. Its editorials are vig
orous and manly in tone, in every
respect characteristic of the man of
earnest convictions who pen them.
Its success is assured before hand.
On the day after ,phristmas, Ed
ward Generes, a promising young
citizen of Avoyelles parish, was shot
and killed on Bayou des Glaises by
an old man named James Sutterfield.
The murder was unprovoked, and
Sutterfield came near heing lynched
by the infiuriated people. Tile mur

victim only twenty.

that city, has been canvassed on the

themn declaring itt if they had to
choose between Grant and Bayard
they would vote for the latter.
The Meridional was behindhand
last week, not owing to delays that
occasionally invatde a printing office,

a reference to the death of Irwin

At the time of his death he was only
twenty-six years of age, but had won
by his wonderful genius a high place
in the Southern literary circle. He
was an Ihonor to his native soil, and
his early death fiunishes cause for
regret in every Southern household.
Who will suffer by the exodus
First, the poor darkies!-then the
hand ofjnstice falls like an avenging
demon on its Radical promoters by
way ofa terrible financial crisis. The
iunerring finger of reason points to a
dark day in the fiuture of tile Westernf
producer. They diik it themselves,
and having done so with the view to
inllro the South, can ask no sympa

Bro. Ilyaims, of the Sugar Planter,
has of late been attacked with the
idiosyneracy that Capitolian punch is
the root of all evils in Baton Rouge.
A French writer asserted that a wo
man was at the bottom of every crime
and every wrong committed by man.
Hlyams, as a devoted admirer of the
fair sex, gallantly relieves them of
thie charge, and bears down with per
sistent and tremendous force on whis

loves dearly," is the maxim that oar
genial confrcre has evidently taken as
his giide-substituting things for per

THE EXODUS RENEWED.
As we had reason to expect it, num
h bers of the colored people who have
- saved their earnings during the past
year, are hleaving our neighborhood
to seek "new fields and pastures
green" where their ambitious dreams
are to meet a complete realization.
To those whose minds are set on go
d ing away, we have nothing to say,
other than the sooner they go the ear
lier will experience teach then that
they've jumped from the frying pan
t into the fire.
e To those who remain, we would say
a that this is above all other sections of
Is this Union, the country for their race.
They know its soil, climate and the
cultivation of its products; they are
here in such large numbers that po
litically their votes will always secure
to themn the exercise of their rights,
and more privileges than they can
obtain when isolated in a strictly
"white man's country." : Let them
r look around: In New O'leans, for
instance, the colored element have
1 become the stevedores, i draymen,
f warehousemen, laborers, etc. Their
r women are everywhere employed for
housework. On the river ;steamers,
colored men monopolize the labor as
deck-hands, waiters, etc., and this
t at wages that cannot be obthined for
I such occupations any where else. In
5 every other town or city the same
thing can be said. On thle plntations
B the colored race again has the mon
r opoly. They can find emnlloyment
Squicker in the South than tlh whites.
On the other hand, transpbrt them

State, and what do they en4ounter I
White competition in the wlieat and
tithe cornfields; the same in the work
shops and thehouseholdis in the cities.
The monopoly there is for the whites.
1 Here they live together: among
t friends and relatives. They have
their churctRs, schools, amusements,
societies, and in fact, everything that
binds their race to our soil.
Why is it that the far West and the
State of Texas are filling up \iith em
igrants from tile old world I It is be
cause a ship load of Germans, for
example, can find room sufficient to
colonize in a neighborhood, so that
they may preserve their language, cus
tomus, faith and social intercourse.
The colored people are just trying
to do the opposite; they are isolating
They must understand that, in the
white settlements of Kansas'and the
other Western States, where they go
to compete with white labor and in
dustry, they will meet with a rivalry
that does not exist in Louisiana.
There will be less social equality
where they are going than at home.
They won't become Senators and
members of Congress there any more
rthan here. Thatis sure.
Then thie question resolves itself
Sinto this: Is it better for the colored
man to remain in thie South and mnon
Sopolize tile labor, or is it to his advan
tage to go elsewhere in competition
with the whites ?
As to the effect on the South, we
can't well see that the colored exodus
will be but a temporalry elbarrass
ment. Asthey go West to raise the
produce at cheaper rates for the South
to consume, cotton and sugar raised
in smnaller quantities will bring better
prices; so that white men will find it
remunerative after awhile to come
here and cultivate our lands in small
farmsand otherwise. The white steve
rdores, deck-hands, laborers, draymen,
who, since the abolition of slavery,
have been compelled to abandon
these pursuits to the colored people,
will return and thie whole trouble ar
Therefore the colored people have
I it in their power, by leaving and dis
seminating themselves, to make Lou
isiana, as well as Indiana or Massa
chusetts, a "white man's country."
By remaining they can retiin tile bird
in hand. Will they seek hle one in

Mr. Witter that George Bessellien
' had given and was giving them
e considerable trouble by cursing and
f bullying around their tables and in

protect them as they coulddo nothing

About 2 o'clock last Sunday morn
ing a thick volume of smoke was dis
covered issuing from the parish jail
I in this place. The alarm of fire was
º raised, which soon caused a crowd to

proved to be the work of the four
I prisoners confined in the lower cell

for the floor is so thick that the whole
i building would have been in flames
and the inmates would have died from
suffocation and heat before the fire
burned at hole through it. By the
