Our friend, Cosgrove, of the Natch- aV itoches Vindicator has "liberalized" w so much, that in our opinion, he ,has fe fallen in the nine hole. We'll reconnoitre the positions he to has occupied and leave it to our read- d ers to decide for themselves. 8 In his Vindicator of the 16th he says: ci Our esteemed friend Jastremski, of tl the Baton Rouge CAPITOLIAN, seem- t( ingly so anxious to convict those Dem- I ocrats of Louisiana who advocate lib- it eral ideas, liberal tenets and liberal ( conduct in the party, ofa bearing to- fi wards and a coalition with Republi canism, has jumped to a conclusion, in the matter of the Louisianian's (Rep.) invitation to us to enter the c Republican ranks which our answer a to that expression of hospitable wel come does not warrant. We only ask our friend to simply give the public 8i our answer. We have never asked the youn/01111 men to "uificate oi a J)olificall C 1platfJimorm 1 of oro. a If he hasn't, what did he mean by sa saying in a previous issue: b There is no reason to believe that the Democratic party with its present a leaders and tenets can ever hope even to be clothed with supreme power in the nation, while it is equally true that we can gain nothing as a people ( with a party in power such as the f present Republican party is.

With regard to the "political plat- 1 frmi of our own," he says :r Much of our friend's aii ticle, is in t great injustice to 11s. If we are to discuss the question we do not pro pose to misquirote ourI confrere, and now that hie may not misunderstand I our position, we reprint, for the thir/ I I time, our platform. and ask himn in all seriousness to address himinself directly -to his ptositioi thereto. 1 Here it is.

If Democracy means a fo coutinuation of the strtiggle for these Ti Ethings, then wedo not inderstndthe a, tenets of the party. If it does not, th we submit the following as our opin ion of what it should struggle for. al S(For further particulars see our plat form.)a Gen. Cosgrove coolly makes the to startling statement, that though he a carried a musket in. the Confederate w army, he never yielded to the perni- D cious doctrines of State Sovereignty and t slavery. yi What an admisiont I Iere was ai Cosgrove,-against his convictions,- d, a volunteer Confederate soldier- o shooting down the Union boys in 81 blue ! tl We'll now explain our Democracy o01 and let our readers endorse it or Cos- la grove's: We supported heart and soul the Confederate cause, for which we Sfought, and believed it a righteous P one. SWhen the Confederacy went down, 7 we understood that the right of se I cession and slavery were dead. R We believe though, that, while the e States have, by the decision of arms, lost the right of secession, all the other sovereiCIlf rights of a state inder 5 i the conslitution still remain, for the d ° very wen who lhal fought for the l 1 reservation of the Union, such as r 1 Hancock and others-with the entire 1i 1 Democratic party of the North-have 1 stood shoulder to shoulder with the a people of the South on that issue. One pjla/rom is the olne which the Sl)iemocratic party in Convenition as semblledtl, issues fromn time to time. and the i)emocratic platform, which i, ours, is not in accord with C I i pnu wi can't see how our fti end Cosgrovei will dii to get along comn fortabily in the I einocratic wigwam. t S Gen. C(osgrove has been a true sol o diet and was an eloquent and daring e supporter of the Democratic party in the days' that trieidl lilen's souls. His adv ice was listened to and followed I i_ much b the peoplel of a large section y of the country. F'or this reason do 1 awe feel that his startling atterances should not be allowed to pass unno lh ticeld. .n Cosgrove's anti-States' r'ights doc e trines place him in a Democracy that -has never hIeen and never will he ours! t Whenever the Democratic paity 3 accepts such doctrines, it will sound LV its death-knell and the end of the j.. Republic contermnlated by the framers of the American constitution. IC If Gen. Cosgrove wants toA remain 11l in accord with the l)emocracy, hle fi. must cease ti) saii at the foundations of the plillars of its temple-State t'S Sovereignty. ks Writing on the subject of the South; the Boston Commercial Advertiser has the following: "Again is the of South ' solid,' but this time in a way or to persuade the American people that rs, they are not divided in their sympa fit thies, or in their love for the republic of and its institutions by any sectional lie lines. In this hour of trial and afflic tion there has been no manifestation of grief monre profound, no expres :a- sion of sympathy more genuine, than that which has come from tile South eet ern States. After all, in baptism by rid such suffering great souls are deve! fa oped, and.. we believe that after thei tor shock of this calamity is over the ng American pCeopl(e will be united in l( closer bonds than overi before," rist --- - (ov.

Hanging of Smith. o0 Cuvl:rTro, July 1r.-Hermy S. Smith who killed Jamnes Burt in april, 18 80, ,c- four miles north of Burnsville, Miss., at was hanged here this afternoon. he Smith, who had been confined in jail at Tupelo, Miss, was brought to tAy Corinth Saturday, at 12:30 P. M. A nd guard of twenty-five men, armed ;he with shotguns. conducted the prisoner ers from the jail to tihe gallows, where fully five thousand people had assem uin bled. Smith ascended the scaffold, ihe read several chapters from the Bible >ns aloud. Ministers sang hymns and ate prayed, after which the black cap was adnjusted. Before having his hands tied Smith raised the black cap and ,th; said: I want to see you all once ser more and bid you good bye. I hope the to meet you all in heaven. Sheriff Say Williams then exclaimed : May God hat in heaven have mercy on your soul; pa- and immediately afterwards cut the blic rope. Smith's neck was broken by nal the fall, and he died anlmost without a lic- struggle. The body, after hanging ion twenty minutes, was cut down and ·e- buried by the authorities. The mur ban of Burt was most cold-blooded; lie th.- and Smith were comrades, journeying by to Tennessee, when, wihout cause, so ve!- far as is known, Smith struck him the with an ax several blows, then threw the his body into a stream.

Uider date Jfe 30, bit the correspondent says : About Wednesday of last week the `old th ma mountain was observdk to be more than usually active, the whole asumit oth of the crevasse pouting forth immense volumes of smoke. By Friday noon the three southern arms all joined Bi into one, rushing down the gulch in a rapid' flow. Saturday noon it had run a mile, Monday morging it was a Y reported to have reachd the flat bank I of the Halai hills. The stream was to * entirely confined to the gulch and no intensely active when about half a gei mile from the flats. d The flow on the average is seventy d five feet wide and from ten to thirty 0 in depth and filled the gulch up level Or with the banks. The sight was grand. so SThe wihole frontage was one mass of irc Sliquid lava carrying on its surface mi [e huge cakes of partly cooled lava. an r Soon after we reached it the flow wl reached a hol e some ten or fifteen feet to 3: in depth, with perpendicular sides. , The sight as it poured over that fall 9" in two cascades was magnit cent. it The flow was then going at the rate' g of about seventy-five feet an hour. t About midnight we boticed a diminu at tion in the activity of the gulch flow, si, it, and soon saw a bright glare above m ad the trie-tops, and presently were R is startled by burning "gas-bursts," and at the crackling and falling of trees ev erywhere above, The whole sky was t at lined with the light of the burning - of trees and shrubs. About 2 A. M., We a- made an attempt to reach the scene ry of the great activity !and succ eded by going up the south side of the it gulch a quarter of a mile. The on th coming overflow had swept over the tr O, banks of the narrow gulch, and was w s., flowing like water into asdense grove 1 on. of neneleui and guava trees. There i ail they stood in a sea of liquid lava k to over a space of more than an acre, tj A while the fires werie running up their fc ed trunks, and burning bianches and " ier leaves overhead. The flow was so re rapid that the trees were not cut 1. m- down for more than two hundred feef Id, from the first of the low. In one ble place we saw a huge dome of half- a, ,nd melted lava rise up fifteen or twenty vas feet high, and twice that in diameter,r ide and apparently remain stationary a ad while the fiery flood went on, we ' Sce watching this for about an hour, see >pe ing how rapidly it was advancing.
