On roll call, all the parishes were found to be represented. Some com plaint was made on the score of inequi table representation of new parishes, which was conclusively met by Judge Ogden.: "If any increase of representa tion was given to a new parish, the power of the section of the State in which said : parish' was situated would be unduly augmented in the Conven tion, because the parishes from which the new parishes were taken were as fully represented as though their integ rity had not been disturbed."

This report submitted ati ket headed by-Col. Geo. William -son for Governor,which report was im meditely adopted by the Reformers. A minority report was made to the Democretle Convention substantially opposing the ticket agreed upon in committee and asking to be authorized to confer further with other political parties. The majority had previously stated that all honorable efforts toward a fusion had been made and failed, and that In their judgment nothing more in that connection could be aecom plished. The majority report was not adopted, but was rejected. This action resulted from two causes: 1st, the friends of a coalition with Warmoth wanted further efforts at a fusion made, and 2nd, there were some Democrats ...

0. W. MIaB*IW., Ui"tor. MONROE, LA., JNE , 1872 TAXING TUE PROPERTY OF TEE N. L. AND T. RAILOAD. We have been awaiting the very slow development of the purposes and plans of the parochial authorities in reference to the matter of assessing and collect ing a tax of the North Louisiana '& Texas Railroad Company. 3Months ago we proved conclusively that this Com pany, and all other railroad companies in the State, should bear their "equal"-' share of taxation. The police Jury set forward to have the revenue laws im partially enforced. At the session of this body, last week, two reports were submitted, and the Jurors seem to have ingloriously fled the field. They took no positive action on the subject. The Parish Attorney reported that the exemption of the property of the road was unconstitutional, but recom mended delay until some suit now pending, involving the question of ex emption, but, it appears, as an inciden tal issue, should be decided, because a direct suit would involve h...

0. W. MIcOu*Jw , ditor. MONROE, LA., JUNE 29, 1872. UNPUBIJSHED HISTORY OF THE DEM OCRATIC STATE CONVENTION. The June Democratic Convention was composed of delegates having hon. est and sincere convictions. Take it all in all, it was composed of trust worthy, well-meaning men, and in its divisions and diffirences was influ eneed mainly by considerations look ing to defeat or success. Outside of the Convention there were men, and num bers of them, whose main thought and purpose was to secure justification for their treachery, desertion, or contem plated injuries to the people. In the Convention, these influences had little or no weight. Until the last day of the Convention tbhe chances alternated between the Democrats in favor of not making fur ther overtures to the Warmoth Repub leans (alias Liberal Republicans) *"the only solution" offered by them not being acceptable-and those Dem ocrats who favored making further advances toward a Warmoth combina tion.

To be broken so soon, so soon. I passed through all the old rooms, good wife! I wondered on and on: I following the steps of a fitting ghost The ghost of love that is gone.

One always said her lessons well, and was commended; but the other was always getting into disgrace, because she could not say hers. So she went, one day, to her schoolfellow, and asked her how it was that she always t said her lessons so well She replied that she always prayed that she might be able to say them well, and then found them quite easy. Well, the little girl thought this was easy enough; she would pray, too, and then she should be able to say hers well. She did so, but the next day, instead of saying her lessons well, and being commended, she did worse than ever, and could not say a word of them. She soon came in tears to her compan ion, complaining bitterly of having been deceived. Herschoolfellow heard what she had to say, and then quietly asked her if she had tried to learn her lessons.
