U r In fixing the date of our paper, on the outside, we made a bad blunder. It should be July 19, A¥o. 1, instead of July I. No. 19. The mistake, however, was noticed and corrected, before many of the papers were "worked off. Salutatory. It might be considered a deviation from the immemorial custom with the "corps editorial," were we to go to press without having first formally introduced ourself to our readers. A lapse of over seven years brings us back to the scenes of our early associa tions: to the Lafourche country we are indebted for all of those early impressions which we have imbibed, and whose bene. .ficial effects have been so advantageously felt by us. We can, without vanity, claim the proud I privilege of having been the foster son of/ our sister parish; because, when a mere youth, emigrating among them, we wereI the especial object of t...

Our Modern Politicians. We are peculiarly blessed in our coun try with a class of political pigmies, who, in the inordinate estimate of their own self.importance, not only proclaim them. selves profoundly wise in the political his tory of their own country, and the policy of its government, but are particularly pro phetic in regard to the political destiny of the entire world. These are the men who are perpetually laying down political the ories, and afterwards making facts to suit them. To these gentlemen nothing is difficult-the most intricate questions in foreign and domestic policy are unraveled with a wonderful facility at all the loafing corners, and fashionable Pot Houses in town, and that, too, without scarcely an effort, though they may have occupied the attention of statesmen for months and ...
