a. W. eOlRANIU. dlitor. MONROE, LA., FEBRUARY 19, 1875. THE COMPROMISE. The persistent efforts made by the Consegvattives to effect a compromise with the Kellogites, through the inter vention of congressional committees, have all resulted in failures. .The last proposition made was rejected, with the information that Kellogg must be recognized -us Governor, as a condi tion precedent to any and all adjust mguts. We de atotregret that the conserva tives have shown a disposition to re concile the differences existing between the Repubcans and themselves; nor eaa we regret that the propositions subnlmitted .by the Oonservatives have failed to be accepted. Necessarily, the copaervatives ought to show a willin goade to accomodate themselves to eirennmstanees - if for no better reaseon, -becatse 'the power of tihe Federal : government is against .them ald Northern sentiment is un favorable; but we cannot regret the re jection of the terms proposed by the Conservatives, because the arrange...

MONROE.LA., FItBIRUARY ISa, 1875. ADVANTAQES OF SMALL FARMS. A correstibndent writes to the Depart ment of Agriculture from Van Buren, Iowa, that he is running a small farm of forty acres, with twenty under culti vation in fruit, vegetables, and small grain. "My income varies from $1 ,5i00 to $2,000 a year," he appears proud to acknowledge. The more industry and intellect one puts into an acre of soil,the more money he is likely to take out of it. His judgment shoiuld tell him wheat crope will pay best in the markets within his reach, with a small farm close in hafid, small taxes, and small outgo for labor, feed, and working stock. There' is both art and good sense in keeping down.expenses on the farm, and, in other branches of busi ness. Success in tillage and husbandry depends bio the capacity of the human brain, rather thdn on the size of one's plantation,.

In the next House of Representa tives the Democrats will have a majority of at least sixty-five votes. 2. In the Senate the vote will stand thirty-five Republicans, thirty-one Democrats and eight doubtful, of whom at least six will probably vote against "strong Southern measures," and will, on other questions, hold a balance of power in the Senate. 8. For practical purposes and on the most important questions of therday, therefore, the Democrats, if they should prove wise and Conservative, may be fortunate enough to control both houses. 4. In the country at large the Demo crates have not gained since the fall elections. The failure to re-elect Schurz; the refusal of some other Democratic legislatures to select first class men as Senators; the evident luck of harmony among the party leaders on the currency ahd tariff questions, and the feeling that the part...

k"u aaait ie ý cjafh. MLONROE. LA.. MARCH 5, 1875. The weather for the week just ended has been rainy,cold and unfavorable for planting. The river has been steadily falling since our last, at the rate of an inch or two a-day. The prospects for an over flow are not very good. Sheridan and Lawrence, from this State, were seated by the House in time to occupy their chairs 15 hours, for which they will receive the neat little sum, each, of $15,000, there or there abouts. Planters are not, it appears, in need of labor, but are sadly in want of good weather. The lands in not one place in ten have been broken up. There is an inquiry for mules which is not like ly to be met. Mr. B. Well has changed his place of business to the house formerly occupi ed by Mr. Hoffman. We can give Mr. Well no better recommendation than the simple statement that we purshase all the tobacco we use from him. The Arkansas matter, involving the legality of the present government in that State, has received a quiet...

MONROE. LA.. MAR('H 5, 1875. PINCHBACK LOOSE. [Special Telegram to the Chicago Times.] WASHING TON, Feb. 19.-There was consternation yesterday in the Radical camp ofoffice-holders. Mr. Pinchback, the colored friend from Louisiana, took to a whisky bottle and madness when he learned the action of the 8enate in laying him upon the table-forall time, of course. He started out with the startling statement that hell was full of such Republicans as Conkling and Ed munds. After that there was trouble. Pinchback raved, and swore he would turn Democrat and tell all he knew about Radical misrule in Louisiana. In short he would show up the whole bus iness. He then took another pull at a bottle of cordial always kept in his room, and swore he would smash the present Administration all into bits, until no piece the size of a politician's conscience would be left. Hlie was so angry that he was not clear just how he would carry out his plan. His first idea was to hire a colored hand of music, and ...

0. W. mcORa&NIE. Editor. MONROE, LA., MARCH 12. 1875. SUFREM.E COURT DECISIONS. On the 8th the Supreme Court of the State rendered a number of decisions. From a careful abstract made by the lRepuiblican we cull the following state ment of general principles of law and practice settled by the Court : The order of seizure and sale was a nullity, the sheriff never having posses sl6n. The defendant remained undis turbed. An actual corporal possession is necessary to make a sheriff's seizure valid. The creditors cannot attack a judg ment of separation of property twelve yeast old, 24 A. 46, but a seizure is good f a sale of the husband violates a pro iibitory law. The conveyance to settle the balance of the judgment of separa tion. with the wife's agreement to pay certain creditors was a nullity being covered by neither of the cases of C. U. 2446 and is forbidden by C. C. 1790. The judgment of separationw.as a nul lity because no payment was given, no suit maintained or promptly publ...
