FOR VICE -PRESIDENT,

A meeting will be held at the Court
house, in St. Frnncisville, onj Satur
day, the 20th inst., for the purpose of
ratifying the nomination of Horace
Greeley and B. Gi-utz Brown ; also to
choose delegates to attend the Liberal
State Convention, to convene in New
Orleans, on the first Monday in Aug.,
All who concur in this opinion, ir
respective of previous political opin

"Killed by a frying pan."
Caleb Cushing says the English

Secretary Bobcson has for his chief
messenger in the Navy Department a
man who is denounced by the Wash
ington Republican as a " dead beat"
and swindler. It appears that re
cently he sold a clerkship in the Navy
Department to the son of a saloon
keeper in Washington for $150 ; that
$50 was paid, and a note for $100 pay
able in ninety days was taken for the
remainder. The appointment was
made by the Secretary, and at the
end of the month the broker insisted
that the salary should be paid on the
undue note. This being refused he
had the clerk dismissed. All these
facts having been-laid before the Sec
retary of the Navy, he retains the
messenger, evidently beiag afraid to
A SORRY SPECTACLE.
The " last ditchers" of Louisiana
presented a sorry spectacle at the
Varieties Theatre last Friday night.
They were there as the ghost of the
Democratic party, gravely endeavor
ing to convince the people that they
must accept the apparition as the
substantial being of what was once
a live party—a controlling power in
These " last ditchers," failing to
comprehend the popular will as ex
pressed at Cincinnati, Baltimore, and
elsewhere—virtually decreeing the
dissolution of the Democratic party,
and calling upon the people to rally
under the Liberal banner—went
forth last Friday night five hundred
strong, and with torchlights, blazing
banners, martial music and speeches
the old party would have been proud
of in days gone by, made a desper
ate effort to prove to the people that
wiiat they had pronounced dead still
lived and had a being.
It is impossible for the " last ditch
ers" to conceive how the Democratic
party can be dead while such men
as Judge Coltoo, Governor Voor
hies, Governor Ilyams, General Lew
is, Professor Booth, Judge McEnery,
Mr. Jonas, ect., live. But it is not
impossible for the people to see that
the Democratic party is dead and
buried, while the gentlemen named
are alive and kicking, for the simply
reason that the people know they
aie not the Democratic party, nor
even that powerful branch of it that
once ruled the destinies of this State.
Therefore the people are not a lit
tle surprised to hear so intelligent a
gentleman as Judge McEnery pro
claim, at a meeting called for the
purpose of ratifying the nominations
of the national candidates of the
Lil ieral party, that the ontgnshing
of the honest masses upon that oc
casion reminded him of " the stale,
flat and unprofitable charge that the
Democratic party has ceased to live.'
The outgushing of the honest mass
es in every State of the Union in
favor of Greeley and Brown should
have served to enlighten the natur
ally acute mind of Judge McEnery
upon the real condition of the Dem
ocratic party. These daily outgush
ings have long since convinced far
less discriminating minds of the fate
of that party. But the Judge re
fuses (o see it and says :
We kuow that the action, the final
action of the Baltimore convention
was awaited with great suspense and
great anxiety by the whole Ameri
can people. We know particularly
that it was awaited with great anx
iety and great suspense by the party
which has put Sir. Greeley in nomi
nation, for they know as well as that
we stand and sit here to-night, that
it would have been fruitless, hope
less, to have placed him before the
American people for their suffrage
unless he could have brought to his
aid the Democratic party of the Uni
The party that nominated Mr.
Greeley certainly did await with
much anxiety the action of the Bal
timore convention, for it knew that
unless the people had been success
ful in sending a sufficient number of
delegates there to prevent the nomi
nation of a Democratic ticket, the
cause of the Liberal Republican
party would be less certain in the
selection of a President. The Lib
eral party knew that the question of
reform had been agitated among the
people throughout the country ;
knew that the Democratic masses in
many of the States had determined
to send delegates to the Baltimore
convention pledged to tho support
of Greeley and Brown ; but it was
impossible to know until after the
meeting of the convention what pro
gress had been made iu the interest
of reform in the short time that
elapsed between Cincinnatti and
Baltimore. This accounts for the
anxiety manifested by the friends of
the reform party, and referred to by
the orators at the Varieties Theatre.
Men of Ju<3ge McEnery's way of
thinking did endeavor to nominate
Democrats for the offices o£ Presi
dent and Vice President, and if they
could have succceded in doing so at
Baltimore, it is quite probable that
the judge and his friends xit the Va
rieties Theatre would have been
found, in that event, denouncing in
stead of praising Greeley and Brown.
As it is, we find thein deuouncing
the Liberal movement in this State
and endeavoring, coutvary to what is
known to bo the popular will of the
Democratic voters, to force a Demo
cratic State ticket, thus strengthen
ing the chances of organized ignor
ance to rule the State for the next
four years. And chief among the
reasons assigned by the principal
speakers of Friday evening why the
united Stute ticket should be sup
ported was that of nativity. Mr.
Jonas, one of the principal speakers
aud the candidate for Lieuenant
Governor, would make this a great
consideration iu the choice of State
officials. It was not. enough to know
that a man had been here ten years,
and came here in defense of this
country ; but it must be known that
he was bora and reared here and
had been in the Confederate service
to entitle him to office. We do not
believe the people are prepared to
sanction this narrow, prescriptive
and selfish Know Nothing doctrine
put forth by Mr. Jonas. An equally
infelicitious were the remarks of
Judge McEnery when he said :
There is an element in the Liberal
party which I can address myself to
almost as a matter of light, certain
ly as a matter of duty, fur these gen
tleman who now form an integral
part of that party have stood shoul
der. to shoulder and side by side
with me in many hard fought but
The speeches of these gentlemen
make them cut a sorry spectacle as
candidates for the highest oîlices
within the gift of the people at a
time when the prejudices of the pant
ire to be forgotten and the interest
of society studied iu the broadest,
most, intelligent, and unselfish sense.

Speaking of the new alliance of
the Reformers and Democrats, the
Baton lîouge Gazelle-Comet, says :
The announcement of the combin
ed Democratic State ticket in this
city created about as much enthusi
asm as a first-class suicide would.—
The efforts of political hacks to choke
that ticket down the public throat
will not take. The people have no
objection to the men, but they do
object to the manner in which they
were nominated. The gentlemen
who have been announced on that
ticket would exhibit their good sense,
as others have shown, to withdraw
their names. If they do not now
see that they have no show of elec
tion they will find it out in Novem
ber, when the end sought by the
people will be defeated as well as
they, and who will be responsible for
it ? The politicians who think an
office good for sore eyes—or the peo
ple who think these politicians too
blind to be cured at the sight of an
office ; we opine that the sore eyes
of those candidates will never be
cured if they are depending on the
cream from old brindles milk to do
