0. W. I cOaAWIU. Ilditor. MONROE, LA., MARCH 2,1872. TtgE POLITICAL SITUATION IN LOU ISIANA. The calling of two State conventions next month and the rapid political formatioen taking place in our State, suggest a little calm, deliberative in quiry concerning the political condition in this State and the nature of the strug ,le before us. We hope to bring to our .portlon of the investigation a spirit of candor,' fairness and common sense, eatirely free from partisan bias or fool Ish prejudices concerning names and patty affiliations. If there be one soli tary aim we hold sacred above all others, it is that of disenthralling the people of Louisiana and restoring to the responsible, working elements the rights and immunities to which, in a republic, they are indefeasibly entitled. That we are in honest in this declara ration, we confidently summon, Las ,proof, our past course and the tenacity with which We have adhered to a cause, whlch, 4n a time of unparalleled cor ruption and licent...

We examined, some time ago, thd question of the legality of the exemp tion of this road from taxation, and came to the conclusion that the exemp tion given in the new charter of 1868, was palpably illegal and void. Article 118 of the Constitution, adopt ed March 7, 1868, reads as follows: ART. 118.-Taxation shall be equal and uniform. All property shall be taxed in proportion to its value, to be ascertained as directed by law. The General Assembly shall have.gower to exempt from taxation property actual ly used for church, school or charitable purposes. * * * The General Assembly of 1868 enacted a new charter for the N. L. and T. Rail road, one section of which exempted the road, its stock and property from taxation for the period of ten years. Manifestly, the legislature, under the Article quoted, could give no such ex emption, unless it was for "property actually used for church, schoot or char itable purposes." The property of a railroad belongs to neither of these classes. By re...

Kiss mine eyelids, beautiful morn, Blushing into life new-born I Lend me violets for my hair, And thy rustic robes to wear, And thy ring of rosiest hue Set in drops of diatuond dew ! Kiss my cheek, thou noontide ray, From my love so far away ! Let thy splendor streaming down Turn its pallid lillies brown, Till its darkening shades reveal Where its passion pressed its seal. Kies my lips, thou lord of light, Kiss my lips a soft good night I Westward sinks thy golden car ! Leave me but the evening star, And my solace that shall be, Borrowing all its light from thee ! -OLIVER WEiNDLL HOLMES. "CRUTCH." One of our Fature IUtileasiros. ru From the New York Democrat.

a. W. McaRANIE. Editor. MONROE, LA., MARCII 16, 1872. OUT FOR 4OVER(OOI. Two or three weeks ago, the Shreve port Times contained an editorial de claring a decided preference for the Hon; J. C. Moncure, of that city, as the next candidate, D)emocratic or Con servative, for the office of Governor. The Times, no doubt, reflects the pref erence of Caddo, and, probably, other contiguous parishes; and it is not unlike ly that some of the parishes below Red River would he pleased to honor Mr. Moncure for his course in the legisla ture, confessedly the mlost upright and unassailable of any member'.s in that body. But we do not suppose that this is the only claim which can be urged in that gentleman's interest, since he simply did his duty and did no more than legislators did before the war, al most without exception. Mr. M., we know, to be a high-toned genitleman and every inch a good Southerner. of" his public career, we know but little, and believe, in fact, he is only a begin ner In poli...

MONROE, LA., MARCJf Ici, 1872. The MaII Without ai Counltry. Perhaps you never heard of the lman without a country. There was such a man; he died not many years since. I-tis name was Philip Nolan; he had been, when a young nmau, a lieutenant in the United States army-a gay, dash ing young fellow he was, and had got some way involved in Aaron Burr's treason, and was court nmartialed and found guilty, and when the presiding officer asked him if he had anything to say to prove that he had always been true to the United States, this hot headed young Kentuckian cried outi, inl a fit of frenzy : "Curse theUTnited States!I I wish I ii ay never hear of the tUnited States again." And he never heard of thernited States again. From that moment, September 23d, 1807, till the day lie died, May 11th, 186:1, he never heard her name again. For that half cenlitury and mllore, he was a- man without a country. I cannot tell you the story. Mr. hlale has told it as no other liviug man could tell it. HI...

. W. .oAIWIm. dits.' MONROE, LA., MARCH 23, 1872. BACK-SET OF TIFE FIFTY-ONE, AND THEIR RALLY. When the fifty-oine leading citizens of New Orleans, comprising eighteen voters and the "overplush" of twenty three non-voters, commenced to organ ize a party for the State, they held a mass meeting in New Orleans, and the next day announced in the public prints that a number of colored men, sixteen in all, acted as vice-presidents of the meeting. The speeches and res olutions made and adoptbl at the meet ting, pointed to a fusion of the disaffec ted colored Republican element with the Reformers represented by the Fif ty-one, but were rather of a pale blue instead of a dark color. The sixteen highly favored colored leaders took a week to digest the bait held out, and then came out in a card, which we published at the time, in forming the FIfLy-one, in terms more conspicuous for directness than concil iation, that they could not accept the positions assign them, as they were in no humor to...
