. W. IlMOANll . dtter. MONROE. LA.. JANUARY 15, 1875. A NEW ELECTION. . Indications ot a rather reliable nature polpt pretty clearly to the holding of a new election in this State, under such r-lepaqd requirements as the present .Ongr-ea may prescribe. Perhaps the bbbtiesbtnafor believing that Congress iýl his i/ manner finally dispose of ~e I ul[tan troubles, is, the fact that i-tr 4lee alsof Louisiana have been Imdly wdrated before the people, and that the Republican party is in a hope e'~ tutrl -and confusion from which tbhq is no escape but in a "new depar ture"-a fresh shuffle and a deal of the cards. The-condition of affirs in this State has become the scandal oel the nation. The Reeublican leaders agree only in an earnest remonstrance against indi vidual responsibility for the existence of this scandal and an equally earnest deslve to be rid of the whole business. There is certainly, since the November elections, no willingness with thinking Radical leaders to shoulder the u...

NIONROE, LA., JANUARY 15, 1875. River Itemnu. We direct attention to the joint card of the steamers Ouachita Belle, Gov. Allen and Lcssic Taylor. These are line pa:ssengcr packets, will run up to schedule time, and are oflicered by gentlemen well known on the Ouachita and with whom it is a pleasure to travel. The steamer Trenton brought up Wednesday Capt. John Morris's new wharfboat for Trenton. We have had no opportunity to inspect the boat, but as she passed up we could see that she is of large capacity,handsome in appear ance and well arranged. The Belle passed down Monday with about 1600 bales on board, but with hardly half-a-dozen passengers. She reached Camden,found plentyofcotton, but the merchants not disposed to ship. The Lessie Taylor went out with a full load-even the boiler deck was crowded. Passengers were scarce. Since the arrival of Rev. Dr. J: Glueck the interest of the Jewish congregation of this city, over which he exercises spiritual control, has been greatly in c...

QRANTS LOUISIANA MESNSAE. -I In, answer to thetenate's inquiry the President has addressed a lengthy ones sage to Congress concerning the political troubles in Louisiana. The informa tion thus tendered is mainly such an aggregation of Democratic outrages, so mdlled, upon Republclans, as one would expect to find nowhere else but in a letter of the paid correspondent of an organ. like the Inter-Ocean, Forney's Press, or Washington Republican, of whiclh style of literature and romance, inj'ustice to the average Radical corres pondent it may be said, the President's attempt at imitation is but a weak, clumsy-fisted effort. Our readers by sitnply recallingto mind what has been salf by Radical newspapers and starv ing officials time and again of the in tolerance and violence of the whites in this State, will have about as true a conception of the pith and tone of the message, as if the whole document was laid before them.

MONRHOIE, LA., JANUARY 22, 1875. Cotton sold yesterday at 13tl cash, andi rather a poor quality at that. How tios our ain;ablld neighbor like I Judge Ray's ''insinuaition" that he as 1 Distrlet Clerk approved a worthless bond ? The situation in N2ew Orleans lhaus undergone no change since our last. Theo Radicals, however, are in evident trepidation. Their perplexities are too plain to be whistled down. Gold in New Orleans, Tuesday, 1121; low middling to strict low middling cotton, 141@141c; corn, 85c; clear sides, 12c; choice flour, $6®6.25; prime nmo lasses, 54c; common sugar, 5t1C,6c. The Republican, of the 19th, says the t proceedings of the two (Kellogg) houses yesterday were "very brief." In the eternal fitness of things two such pig lnies. ought to be "very brief" in all they do or say. A motion in arrest of judgment hav- t ing been refused, Ailsy Harris and c Toney Nellum, convicted of the nlur der of hIenry Harris, will be sentenced by Judge Iay to-day. We learn that their c...

Pat ee- and persistency being clearly the Strong point with the Dem o&&a& In their contest with the Kellogg usurpation, we are pleased to find the Democrats In the legislature manfully mnintaining their independence of the maiufactured General Assembly run by Mr. Kellogg. The Democrats, as we learn, meet daily to discuss the sit nation. Kellogg's two houses meet daily also at the State House, go through the prescribed preliminaries and make feints of legislation, but do really nothing in the way of practical law-making. The so-called House is evidently incapable of meeting the objection that it is without a legal quorum, and hence dilly-dallies from day to day, deeply concerned with insignificant trifles. Privately, we gather the information that the whole concern is in the worst possible odor with all the Republicans who claim any respettability, and it is evident that ...

narchitadt graaph. MONROE, LA., JANUARY "2', 1875. During athe twelve days" there was not a single fair day. About 4500 bales of cotton have been sold in this market this season, being an increase of 1500l bales over sales of last year. Business on the railroad has sensi bly declined since the advent of the boats. Very little cotton leaves this point over the road. Dr. Dinkgrave has not as yet taken possession of the office of tax collector. The bond, we believe, is $30,000, and must be accepted by the Auditor. Notwithstanding the rainy weather and miserable roads there was a respect able showing of cotton on the market last week. Price yesterday 1:3ec. G. B. Hamlet has been formally installed as sheriff of this parish. The deputies selected are J. H. Ilanna and Stephen Wood, the former having been designated by Mr. S. Whited, the principal bondsman.

[Louisville Courier-Journal.], WAsrHNaTOr , Jan. 26.-The House of Representatives, by an emphatic vote set its seal of disapproval this after noon upon the third term project, and, what is at once strange and significant, it was brought about through the agency of Gen. Butler, who has hitherto been regarded as the emrbodiment of Grant ism in Congress and in politics. He, as chairman of the Judiciary Committee, had the floor: and after the presentation and passage of three or four bills of a miscellaneous character, he quietly yielded to Clarkson N. Potter, of New .York, who.immediately presented a resoltion providing for the reference to the people of a new amendment to the constitution, to be known as the sixteenth amendment, limiting the Presidential and Vice Presidential terms to six years, and prohibiting a re election.

ANDREW JOHNSON. [Ihe New Orleans Picayune.] The presence in the Senate of a man who has been President of the United States has never before occurred in our history. John Quincy Adams was for many years a member - of the House; but he has hitherto been the single ex ception to the custom among our ex -Presldents of exchanging the highest dignity of the Government for private life. This abandonment of public affairs was not in all, or even in a ma jority of cases, compelled by the weight of years,but seemed to follow naturally from satisfied ambition and the belief that it was beneath the dignity of one who had wielded Executive power to accept a minor station. John Adams lived for nearly thirty years after leav ing the Presidency; Mr. Jefferson for more than twenty; Mr. Pierce was still a young man when he retired, and he remained for nearly twenty years a passive spectator of the rapid changes in politics and the revolutions in civil affairs which marked the stormy period subsequen...

G. W. MaGiRAtAN . Uditer. MONROE, LA., FEBRUARY 12, 1875. COMIIROMISING PRINCIPLES. *For some time it has been apparent that the COnservative members of the legislature were not indisposed to effect an adjustment with the Kellogg legis lature. This feeling has culminated in a formal agreement, on the part of thirty-eight Conservatives of the House, to enter the State-House, with a Conservatfve majority of the House, but with a promise not to interfere with the present political status of the Senate, or to inquire into the conduct of Kellogg Or his administration of the State government. We publish elsewhere the utterances of several prominent Conservative leaders at a meeting held in New Or leans to protest against the proposed arrangement. Weeks ago, in anticipation of this very trouble, we emphatically con demned any backing-down on the part of the Conservative members of the legislature. We believed that Kellogg and his adherents, being clearly in the wrong and in the minority, w...
