MONROE, LA., MARCH 29, 1873. 0. W. IooallANl , Bditor. THE CRUCIAL TEST. When the United States Senate de cided, a few days agoand after Congress had, in effect, agreed the President should sustain the Kellogg government in this State, that the claims of Pinch back, as the Senator elected by the Kellogg lesislature, should not be de termined before next December-a de cision made by the unananimous con sent of all the Administration Senators -it was then virtually decided to leave to the action of our people the final deter mination of the question, vwhich is the rightful government in Louisiana. It is plain to our understanding that the Radical Senators were unwilling openly to sustain the Kellogg fraud, but, desirous of sustaining it, they took the "roundabout" plan of leaving to the slow process of cooling-down by the people and the corrupt process of buying up by official appointments, the solution of our troubles by the action of our own people themselves, who, thus acquiescing ...

ua*chita aegXraxpb. MONROE, LA., MARCH 29,1873. ELECTRIC FISHES. The action of electric fishes may be likened to that of lightning, in being independent of our intention. The shocks of the gymnotus are particularly formidable. Alexander Humboldt re lates that, having put both of his feet on one of these fish, just taken from the water, be experienced so violent a shock that he felt pains in all his joints the rest of the day. These shocks throw the strongest animals down, and it is necessary to avoid rivers frequent ed by the gymnotus, because, in at tempting to ford them, horses or mules might be killed by the discharges. To capture these fish the Indians drive wild horses into the water, stirring the eels up out of the mud by their tramp ling. The yellowish, livid creatures press against the horses under their bellies, throw down the greater part and kill some of them, but, exhausted in their turn, they are then easily taken with the aid of small harpoons. The savages employ them ...

MONROE, LA., APRIL 5, 1873. G. W. McORGANE, Editor. A LITTLE PLAIN TALK to THE PEOPLE Attention was directed last week to the importance of maintaining actively an opposition to Jthe Kellogg govern ment, on the part of all th6so who sup ported the Fusion ticket and who be lieve that the prosperity of the State, the purity of elections and the right of the mpajority to govern will be perma nently endangered, if not blasted, by the ultimate success of that usurping government. The idea we would im press upon every such citizen is, that Congress has virtually sent back to the people of Louisiana the solution of their own troubles, by its deliberate non action in the contest between McMillen and Pinchback, (the House deferring to the Senate in the decision of the matter in controversy,) and, that, Con gross has, in effect, said to Louisiana, You are expected to present yourself at the next session of this body with such evidence as will warrant us either in upholding, or abolishing the ...

M.ONROE, LA., APRIL 12, 1873. i O. W. MISOR*lMAi, Bditor. PRACTICAL RINTS ABOUT TAXES. If Kellogg's tax collectors shall proceed to advertise for sale all the property in thisState returned for non payment of taxes to them, we guess | that of the 89,924 square miles compri soed in Louisiana, 20,000, at least, will I be offered for sale. As nearly every I man in the State is already land-poor, and would be obliged to Mr. Kellogg if he would sell their lands for them at equitable figures, it is not very clear to our mind where purchasers are to be found, especially when Mr. Kellogg's title is the only reliance for future security. Two things are very important in effecting a sale: one is a market with buyers, and the other is the capacity to make a good title. Buyers of land in this State, even at taxes and costs, is a thing out of the order of probabilities. A people who can't buy a year's supply of bacon and corn are not in a condition to expend much money for land. Besides that, th...

MONROE, LA., APRIL 12, 1873. MISCEGENATIONISTS AT THE INAU GiURAL BALL. The Washington correspondent of the Paterson Press, in a sprightly letter, gives the following gossip about the in augural ball: -There was the exceeding dark Rep resentative in Congress from a far Southern State, in Irreproachable even ing costume, and with him a quadroon woman-his wife I heard. Her fea tures were regular and fine, her figure graceful and well poised, her complex ion scarcely darker than a Spaniard's; yet we were told she had been a slave. And, again, there appeared a white man of pure Anglo-Saxon type, blonde of hair and bheard, escorting two colored damsels, one of whom, report said, he was engaged to marry. Stopping awhile in one of the dressing-rooms we noted the alacrity with which thesable dress ing-maids turned after performing their duties toward the fidr beauties of the ball to render a similar service to their darker sisters, buttoning their delicate kids, and adjusting their silken t...

MONROE, LA., APRIL 19, 1878. G. W. McIOANi, EBitor. IELLOGG'S PERJURY BEARING FRUITS. The disturbance in Grant parish has culminated in serious results. This was to have been expected from the moment the colored people of that parish, heeding the few partisans of the white race who were bent upon tramp ling down the manhood of their parish in order to possess themselves of office, organized in an armed body, seized the Parish site and forcibly entered and sacked the residences and business houses oflaw-abiding while and colored - citizens. Whatever may have been the the aggravating cause, that induced the supporters of Mr. Kellogg to take the initiative in hostile measures, there has not appeared a sufieient reason, any where, for the taking of the matter in dispute from the province of the law, and settling it, as the negroes of Grant parish proposed to do, by a direct and unauthorised appeal to arms. Looking upon these ignorant negroes in every way as good as white people, and awa...

ýuarcthxt ? dd raphb MONROE, LA., APRIL 19,1897. THE pAnXRB IN THE FIELD AT LAST. The Chicago Tribune publishes a list of nearly two hundred farmers' Clubs in Illinois. These clubs have from fifty to three hundred members each. In Arcola Township, Douglas County, there are nine clubs, one of which has fifty members. The farmers are indeed earnest, and the movement is spreading far and wide. The Trib one says: "It isa very moderate etalimate to say that eight hundred townships have alreadyorganised clubs,or havetne field occupied by the lodges of the Patrons of Huabandry,"which are called 'granges.' Some people, whose means of informa tion are excellent, place the number at one thousand; ethers say that there are not less than twelve hundred. The number is certainly far beyond com putation from any means now at our disposal. A few counties have more than twenty of both associations. The average membership is about one hun dred male adults,and increasing. The combined membership of th...

MONROE, LA., APRIL 2, 1871. '. ------ ·--a-l G, .W. lCaRAtIE, Editor. t . SPEECH OF OYV. McENERY. At the large meeting of tax-payers held in Monroe on the 19th inst., Gov. McEnery spoke about 21 hours. We can only give a short synopsis of his sabech. The Governor said that he had not come among the people to indulge in the flights of fancy, or to deal with the flowers of rhetoric, but to speak plainly -to state the practical means of pre serving constitutional rights and Amer clan freedom. The contest in Louisi ana is not localized. A sentiment of patriotism is stretching over the land, and the Louisiana contest is becoming national in its character. Men, irre spective of party, are watching with interest our actions here. Democrats and Republicans are looking at the Issue as being above party strife and party bilkerings. They feel that if free government is stricken down in Louis iana that it is only a question of time when an imperial despotism will throttle the liberties of the p...

Previous to the engagement they had entrenched themselves and thoroughly fortified their position. The battle with the people of the ad joining parishesslastcd about four hours. At one time it was most severe. It is believed that there were about ten white men killed and wounded. The whites, before the fight took place, endeavored to avoid bloodshed. They raised a flagof trusee. DMr. Nash, the Sheriff of Grant parish, sent for IL. Allen-a leader of the negroes-and begged him to disperse them. The reply of the latter was they would fight to the last. The white people then gave them an hour for the women and children to re tire from the place of conflict, which they did. Whilst the negroes were in possesion of the town of Colfax, they committed many cruel acts against people of their own color. They sent different bodies of a...
