The perish of Red River, of which Coushatta Is the parish site, is situated othe river, bounded on the south by NZtcbitoches parish and on the north bjyBieiville. It is one of those new eishes made by the Republicans for the convenience of Republican office. . seekers, the population of which is Slargely colored, ignorant and easily epntrolled. For some time it has been expected that trouble would spring up between the whites and blacks of this parish, as it may be safely calculated in al the parishes where the negroes, are led, as in that perish, by rapacious and unscrupulous .political leaders whose meat and bread depend upon negro supremacy. The other day, a planter of Red River perish was waylaid and shot at by two negroes on the highway. Up to this occurrence, the relations between the whites and blacks were pacific, if not cordial; but the assault on Mr. Wil liams, the plan...

MONROE, LA., SEPTEMBER 11, 1874. The Police Jury held a meeting last week. Nothing very important was done. The Democratic Club at Logtown, abolishing distinction of color, has received several colored voters into the club. We invite attention to the card of Mr' MI: P. Tucker who abvertises that he will open a male school in the Male Acadehiy on the 14th. The card of Messrs. Stone & Co., of Talulah, speaks for itself. It seems to us the Railroad company ought to an swer a charge so grave. Who will be the first white Republi can in:this parish to approve and en dodse'th e Civil Rights bill? We have interviewed a number, all of whom rculiate such an idea. Our Special friend "Major'?

At twelve o'clock, yesterday, there was a considerable assemblage of spec tators at the sale of the monitors at the Iron-clad station. The sale was ordered by the Navy Department, it having been determined that the keeping of the vessels at an expense ot $1000 each per annum was useless. The vessels have not really been condemned as worthless, but their place can be better supplied by others. They were in perfect order from stem to stern, deck to hold, and turret to lreroom. Every piece of brass work shone, and the engines were as ready for serviceas if in commission. Only a few months ago, when trouble with Spain was threatened, it was announced that time to fill the magazine and store room was all that was required to pre pare.them for sea.
