T',' ih; ' Edl',' , f I I e,, ý,io Fh.iroidc : An editorial which appeared in "Le Louisianais" of this date contains certain elanderousstatements respect ing the undersigned composing the law firmn of Sims & Poche, which it becomes their imperative duty to no tice and refiute in as public a manner as they have been made. The article in question states that the Supreme Court, in a decision re cently rendered, 'refected upon the conduct of the undersigned as coun sel in the case. We desire to state explicitly that that article, from beginning to end, so far as it contains any allusion de rogatory to the undersigned, is a vile tissue of falsehood and misrepresen tation. The statement that the Supreme Court ree!,cted upon tihe undersigned in iany i:unner or in connection with any I, hing litigation, is notably false tand iwas made maliciously. The litigation referred to in "Le Louisianlais' article, is still pending and yet undetermined in the Supreme Court. A decision in the case was prematurely rendered through inad v'ertcncte or a mistake of a ministeri al officer of the court and the court has granted to our client, Mr. Felix Falgoeust,who has not been heard, additional delay to file his briefs. The true mission of the person who amow controls thle destinies of"Le Louisiannis" appears to be solely to disseminate falsehood and calumny, and his course in the management of his paper has been marked by an ut ter absence of the observance of those rules and amenities which distinguish and should always govern in the con duct of decent and honorable journal is, R.

Reed's Gilt Edge Tonie Restores theI 4ppetite. A Baton uge ,'tI 'other dad, w enthused by Coniling'ý exhtibition of offended pride said self respedt, brought those conimnenddabe traits down to a fine point by endeavoring th to imagine a supposable circumstance which would bring about the resigna- p tionr of our :delectable senator, Kel- th logg. Among the suppositions he named, there were included mass meetings all over the Stator of the people, irrespective of raei, sex, Ielli gions aind political opinions, color or previous condition, trade, occupation, and profession, age, origin, state of T health, education, social standing, habits, infirmities mental and physi cal, dress or style, whether in liquor or sober, at which resolutions would be unanimously adopted declaring U him, Kellogg, a first class dead beat h and shameless fraud and interloper, a F liar, scoundreld and Melican man of the Worst type, winding up by an ur gent demand that he wash off the b stain which' his presence makes on Louisiana's escutcheon and to abate the nuisauce he beau idealizes in the k U. S. Senate, by tendering his rbsig- t nation. tl The judges decided that the do monstrations named would have as much effect on Kellogg as a flea bite a on the neck of a rhinoceros. o "Suppose," said our Baton Rougean, "that in addition, the meetings wvould tar and feather him in effigy, hang him toea sour apple tree, and then and then---set fire to the manned q un ?" The judges declared that the sup- t position in effect would be as potent as a blister on a wooden leg. "Suppose, then," said the pertina cious Baton Rougeai, "that a dose of tartar emetic would be put in every U. S. Senator's whiskey, one day, and Kellogg pointed out as the man who had it done, and thoun the Louisiana resolutions would be readl out uy tie clerk,--and the Scnators in a body would endorse every word they con contained, " ' * and in addition unainiously adopt one askinig that ,"rooster" Kellogg to resign. Wouldn't that bring him ?" It wouldn't help the case any more than a bob-tailed bull can help him self in fly time, said the Judges. `'Snppllose tihen," attempted the ir reiressih, Baton Rougean, tl ' " but betbore he could lrocced i any further the Judges walk eed away, shlruggiug their shoulders, one of them rentai'ing: "''The poor fellow will I, go crazy trying to solve that problem. 'Thre'Pl no resign in Kellogg, under no possible circun istainces. FTHE WARWICK OF TIlE REPUB LICAN PARTY. T. he latest advices from New York nare to the effect that Coukling will resolutely enter into the Eon.test for ',lcction n.ud the cndorl',ment of il. coms. bfoe her d General As sembly of that State. As the quarrel is altogether within the Republican camp, we feel at per t feet liberty to pat on the back whom soever we please, Mr. Garfield or Mr. Conkling. Between the two we can't help but believe that Mr. Conkling occupies Bthe most loyal and honorable posi tion. Mr. Conkling was the leader of the Grant forces at Chicago. He there made a stubborn fight for his candi Sdate, who was finally defeated by Mr. Garfield. He loyally accepted the result and threw himself in the lbreach to save his party fromn defeat, Sand by his powerful appeals to the Sprejudices of the masses and his well Sdirected efforts, he wrenched the Em pire State from the Democrats and made Mr. Garfield President. SIf any one man turned the scale in favor of the Republican party at the t late election, that man is Conkling, the proud Senator of the most pow Serful State in the Union. We contend that Mr. Conkling's a services to his party had placed Mr. 0 Garfield in his debt. The man who 'had carried New York had the right to obtain of the President the ap Spointment of the Collector of the Port i of New York, an office which wields a tremendous power in sustaining any political party. Mr. Garfield proved ungrateful by disregarding the claims of Mr. Conk ling and nominated a Garfield man ' simply. ' Mr. Conkling with a pride and self a respect, which many politicians could Stake pattern from, would not consent Sto sit down alongside and on the o same plane almost, as a Kellogg. He d- resigned his position and aks his . constituents of the Republicha party of the State of New York, who have made Mr. Garfield President, to say which one of the two has proven reo asy to p "r r vert than an oft f oldC We dtla:e! a suit of this contest and. bt tev t the country will be as well bo if ; • Conkling's course is :iºt p - d or "4 pudiated; but we cer'lAnly applaud iD the precedent which he inaugurates y that a representative -should, under certain circumstances, refer his con .dut td o t th, approval ofthis ,efstita ents. A CHILD OF THE STATE. The Connt de Serrant sent up for 0( Five Years. :N. O. Thimes. " Some time ago there arrived in b this city a young man who gave his name as Walch de Serrant. He said t he was a count, all the way from a France, and as his manners were very smooth and ingratiating, his story 11 obtained wide credence. He full into 9V ` bad ways, however, and in conse- P quence became intimately acquainted f with the criminal laws of Texas, Ar 0 kansas and Lopisiana. The editor of the Little Rock Gazette "wrote up" the count in a very laughable manner, and the victim swore that he would be avenged upon the writer as soon e as he had righted himself in the eyes I of thy public. Circumstances inter- ( ' veneod, however, preventing the exe Id cution of this laudable resolve. A ig very short time after his arrival in the Crescent City, he indulged in one of e- his peculiar pranks, called in legal phraseology grand larceny, ,ad was t li taken before a court, tried, found I ut guilty, and sentenced to five years in I the State penitentiary. ( a- His counsel took an appeal to the t of Supreme Court, and yesterdaV the IY verdict and judgment of the lower id court was allirmed. Justice Todd, o who read the decision of the Supreme 38 Court, took occasion to say in the course of his remarks : 13' We have closely scrutinized the proceedings pertaining to this prose- t e)n cution, and we cannot filild a single lt right or privilege guauanteled to an 't accused by law that was denied the defendant, but on the contrary that ve Ivery means of defense in the power `- of the court was atfforded him, and we find no error or irregularity in any ir lpart of the proceeding. The count will take a % isit up the river as fair as Baton Rouge, where in the privacy and reclusion of the peni jn tentiary or work on the rodt hie will have ample time and opportunity to It per feet his bellicose arrangeulmets for the aiuihilation of the Arkansas edi tlor who gave, himn such a 9autiful ,rj Med1 off in his paper. The Spartl; Kl'r:al Times givei the fol k lowing account of the killing rf the col S ored, boy who raped and miurderjl a lit the colored girl sonee weeks ago: "Hlefore for our last Saturday's paper coltaining an of accou, t of the, ho,)rrill: td.ble ,'o me L conlOmitCted il our plrlish last Sunday week, had time to reach its readers, the n perpqrator, Cherry Nichols, was dang Slingbetween earth aund heaven with sev eral bullet holes in his body. 8atur'ay m- night last, at about 11 o'clock, Mr. Whit gr low, the sheriff, was aroused by a party of six men who informed him that they ut were new comers in the lower part of ies this parish and that they had a hog thief, si- who they called D)ock, in their posses sion, and wished to put him in jail, he Not suspicioning anything at all, the sre eheriff went at once anid unlocked the di- jalil(l ordered Dock, who by this time r was all in tears at the idea ,of going in prison, to walk in. lit Dl)ok wonhli't hwalk worth a cent. By this time n.a pler tbe feet little armuy of both white and col it, ored men, who had concealed thelmselves the in a clump of woods near the jail, hadl ell completely surrouinded the jail doors m-when Mr. Whitlow, was told that, i)ock nd was one of thelir 'iizens--thlcey wantled Cherry Nichols, and (Cherry Nicihols they ill wolldl have.
