Ouachita Telegraph. * GaT.w.McCA1,IA. . J , dit7r. MONROE, LA., JULY 9, 1870. Republioans Oppose Amnesty. It appears to be decided by the Republicans, if the telegraph does not lie--and it never does-that the present session of Congress will terminate, without any gen eral legislation in behalf of am nesty for political offenses ; thus leaving nearly all the -white citi zens qf the South still debarred from holding Federal offices, and several thousands of our ablest men deprived of any political privileges whatever in the gov .ernment called their own-men who are exiles in the land that gave them birth, and the politi cal inferiors .of the menials who bridle their horses or polish their shoes. It is a frequent boast with the Republicans, that of all the crimi nals produced by the "Great Re belliQn," not one has as. yet been punished. Senator Morton, in the Senate, uttered this boast, and added, referring to alleged outrages in the South upon Union men, that only the innocent had be...

THE MEETING TO.DAY.-lt is under, stood that the Democratic meeting to, day will be- addressed by some of the most prominent and talented Demo. crats in North Louisiana, gentlemen who have been called here by busi. eess before the Supreme Court.

Ouachita Telegraph. .. (U.~Ki-oc.RANIC. 3 Editor. ýIONROL ,LA., JULY 23, 18i0. THE L0G ROLL ON THE RHINE. bi"e revolutionin Spain has cul aiinated in a war between France and Prussia. Gen. Prim, at the head of Spanish insurgents, drove Queen Isabella from the throne of Spair, promising to give her lib erated sulbjects a republican form of government. R'ising to the dic tatorship, Gen. Prim falsified his pledge, by retaining monarchy and putting the Spanish throne up at auction. After months of weary crying and patient search, Prince Leopold, a Prussian and supposed to be the agent of Bis nmarck, Louis Napoleon's dreaded foe, was accepted by Prim as the highest bidder for the vacant throne. The map of Europe shows that nearly all the frontier of France lies adjacent on one side to Prus sia, and on the other to Spain. The Emperor Napoleon felt reluctant to see his Empire land-locked by Prussia and Prussian dependen cies; and, moreover, having an unsettled aoount with Bismarek, the wil...

There was go issue of the paper on last Saturday, and publication will not be resumed for a week or two longer. We sympathize with our friends and neighbors in their misfortune. The tone of the paper having al ways been moderate, just and conciliatory with men and mea sures, makes the violence doubly surprising. Possibly partisan feel ings were never more vindictive than now. Every appliance of craft and cunning is allied and grafted upon ignorance and cre dulity. -Legislators sworn to act for the good ol the body of the State, unmindful of their trust, forgetful of theiroaths, but always watchful for the interest of party, have wasted the greater portion of their time in perfecting and in corporating on the Statute books the plan of a political campaign.
