We thank our coteniporary for thl very apposite expression we have quo. ted. The thought has bccn uppermost in our mind ever since the Republican party in this State began its war of fac tions, commencing with the August conventions of that party, of last year, and since carried on with a bitternesz hardly to have been expected. The first disturbance of the conserva tive elements of Louisiana, was created Iy the Fifty-one reformers of New Or leans. Up to the publication of their call for a State convention, the ])emo eratic. State Central Committee was agreed to hold still, avoid entangling political alliances, and call a State con vention only when the people desired it. But the new movement, from the position of its authors, demandled a re spectful attention, and the i)emocratic State Central Committee, therefore, called t...

.,MONIRO, LA., .MARCLI 30, 1872. Educatiag the Little Folks. ' It is because children are not educated in human feelings that we have the brutal teamsters and heartless butchers who make societies for the provention of cruelty to animals necessary. Little folks learn cruelty easily, but they learn kindness easily, too, if pains are taken to teach it. "Froebll, to whom the world owes those suggestions of geniuseinbodied in the Kindergardlen, recommends that every school hlouse be surrounded with a garden, where the little children can cultivate their flowers, and where pet animals can be kept, of which the children are to have the sole care. " Whatever Ipan takes care of, the object or being for which he works, he loCves. The child who has never owned a pi.ce of land, inever worked it in thne sweat of his brow, never has taken loving are of lants and animals, will always have a baink in the development of his soul. lie will never have the perfect gift of tak ing care of human beings...

G. W. McORANEI. Uditor. MONROE, LA., APRIL 6, 1872. END OF THE FARCE*--THE TRA4AEIIY BEGINS. The rivalry between the Radical fac tions,tose whichone of the two should be beaten in November by the Demno crats, is about to close. One after another of Warmoth's sunny-day friends are desertinig him, to join his mortal foes, the well-fed custodians of the New Or leans Customhouse.. The star of Prince Hal is fast setting in darkness and gloom. Word has probably gone forth from the White House that decisive measures will be taken to counteract the power of the Governor under the State registration and election laws, by invoking the authority of the Federal laws in reference to the same subjects. From the sudden collapse of these late notorious rebels against the Adminis tration, it may be safely assumed that the President has been compelled-very reluctantly, of course-to pledge him self to Interfere in our State canvass and election, and this pledge has spoilt all the nice calculations for...

MONROE, LA., ARI' i. , 1872. Roy's New Sallt. One morning at breakfast, Itoy's mother said to his papa, "It is time Roy was put into pants. le is getting too tall to wear dresses." Roy's eyes opened wide with sur prise, and then sparkled with delight. He had never thought of that before. Of course, he was too big to be dressed like a girl. lie must have some pretty pants just like papa's. Papa smiled at his eager little face, and said, "Shall we have all those long curls cut off too?:" Mamma sighed a little as she said, "Yes, I suppose so. We can't keep him a baby always." It was arranged that R1oy should be taken to the city next day, to be mr.eas ured for a suit of clothes. And as maitl ma was not very strong yet, she asked A\unt Grace to go with papa to see about it. Rloy felt very grand all day. lie made his best friend, WVillie Hlollis, quite envious by talking of his new pants.

MONROE, LA., AIRPIL 13, 1872. THE PARTIN(I HOUR.

MONROE, LA., ARPIL 20, 1872. BEAST AND MAN ARE BROTHERS. BY BAYAIID TAYLOt. Little one, come to my knee, Hark how the rain is pouring, Over the roof, in the pitch-black night, And the winds in the woods a roaring ! Hush, my darling, and listen, Then pay for the story with kisses, Father was lost in the pitch-black night. In just such a night as this is! High up in the lonely mountains, Where the wild metn watched and waited, WVolves in the forest and bears in the bltsh, And I on my path belated. The rain and the night together Came down, and the wind came after, Rending the props of the pine-tree roof, And snapping many a rafter. I crept along inl the darkness, Stunned, and bruised, and blinded- Crept to a fir with thick-set boughs, And a sheltering rock behind it. There front the blowing and raining Crouching I sought to hide me; Something rustled; two green eyes shone, And a wolf lay down beside me. Little one, be not frightened ; I and the wolf together, Side by side, through the...

As the time for the meeting of the Democratic Convention of the State, drew near, reflecting people, who saw the weighty interests at stake, grew nervous and were inclined to close their eyes, lest they should witness a failure upon the part of the several par ishes to participate in the Convention and lest the leaders who might assenr ble should terminate their labors in sundering, instead of uniting the people so earnestly enlisted in the re demption of the State. It was, no one can deny, an important Convention, whose deliberations and actions were to control inevitably the destinies of the State, and the anxiety of tile peo ple all over the State to be informed as to what the Convention was doing while it sat, and what it has done, now it has adjourned, proves counclusively how deep and profound was their in terest and how solicitous they were for the success of the Convention.

MONROE, LA., ARPIL 27, 1872. THE LITTLE BOY THAT CRIES. I know a little dumpy boy, He's almost five years old. And he is but a baby yet I grieve to have it told. His eyes are black, but often dim With tears that freely fall; We've other babies in the house, But he out-cries them all ! Sometimes we have a doleful wail Before he's out of bed, And while he's dressed you'd be surprised To see the tears he'll shed. Ilo hurts his finger-thenou le screals, Falls down-screams ten times louder; And if you laugh, you might as well Set offla keg of powder ! lie cries for bread, he cries for cake, He cries when some one teases; And when he's washed, you'd really think He'd cry himself to pieces ! But I must say-to speak him fair He is not always screaming; His black eyes often shine with fun, His face is bright and boaluing. Alid he can laugh, and julll, and sing, And I am glad to tell you, His lips can smile and kiss as \sweet As any little fellow. And don't you think this little boy Should tr...
