MONROE, LA., MAY 3, 1878. G. W. McCRANIE, Editor. TREASON ! TREASON!!I Perpetuating Pitt Kellogg, chief con spirator in ",the Comedy of Errors and Frauds," is about to. undertake the prosecution for treason of Gov. Mc Enery, the man he has outrageously wronged, and with Gov. McEnery, all his aiders and abbettors in resistance to that government, headed by Kellogg, which was created by Durell, whose conduct and acts, even Senator 'Morton says, "cannothe justified or defended," ",is without any foundation in law or logic," and ",can only be characterized as a gross usurpation." "Then said Zeresh, his wife, and all his friends unto him, (Hamlnan,) Let a gallowsbe made * that Mordecai may be hanged thereon. And the thing pleased Haman; and he caused the gallowsto be made. * And Harbonah, one of the chamberlains, said before the King, Behold also the gallows fifty cubits high, which Huaman had made for Mordecai, who had spoken good for the King, standeth in the house of Haman.

The frost has melted from the pane, For rime is not In reason When flowers begin to bloom ngain, And the olear shining after rain Foretells an April season. I know how white the snow-drifts 1ie Against the hawthorn hedges; Ana do not venture to deny That icicles hang high and dry Along the window-ledges. But some have found the flower of life A delicate May-comer ; Some find the winter's storm and strife With more of blooming sweeotness rife Than any hour of suanmnor. And let me tell you why to-day The frost leaves no impression ; And why when all the world is gray, I hold, so confidently gay, The sunshine in possession. An hour ago this very room, That now you find so cheery, Was dull and darksome as a tomb Whereon the flowers have ceased to 1[,I0om, And I was just as dreary.

MONROE, LA., MAY 10, 1878. Q. W. WcORANEI, Editor. PROM COLFAX TO St.MIARTINSVILLE. The plain simple propoitlion Mr. Kellogg has started with is that a gross usurpation in office in Louisiana is to be perpetuated and to become the de facto government against the proclaimed wishes and voice of a majorty of the peo ple. We have never met a Riepublican yet who was willing to affirm that Kellogg was elected Governor. It is not pretended that he was elected. When, therefore, the right of the Kel logg government to rule the people, is asserted, and when it is understood that its ability to maintain this claim by force is to be the real test of the result of the November election before the tribunal of Congress, the majority of 1 newspaper readers will readily under stand the main cause of the existing troubles in this State. The other day we had the news of the first conflict at Colfax. The Kellogg claimant for the office of Sheriff, as one of the leaders of the Kellogg party, has publish...

MONROE, LA.. MfAY 21, 1873. 0. W. McCRANIE, Editor. THE CENTRAL AMERICAN MISSION. Colonel George H. Villiamson, of Shreveport, has been appointed the diplomatic agent of this government for the Central American States. The importance of, this mission to the Gulf States of the Union, and esreelally to Louisiana, is apparent at a g:ance. The simple exchange of productions is in itself an item of magnitude. New Or leans ought to be the focus of a large export and import trade with Central America. Its natural advantages in this respect are unrivalled by any city or seaport in the United States. En couragement by the government and the aid of capital will inevitably give force to these advantages. The selection of Col. Williamson to represent our government in Central America is in many respects a good-one. It is a good selection for the administration, because Col. Williamson has character, pride and position; a good one for Louisiana, because his adhesion to Grant and Radical success ...

G. W. IcORANIE, Editor. MONROE, LA., MAY 81, 1873. TIHE SPECIAL AGENT'S APOLOGY. Room for More Cards! "Major" Edgar Selye's statement, as to the robbery of the mails on the North Louisiana & Texas Railroad, (which we publish elsewhere.) is a lame and bungling piece of composi tion. It is, in fact, just such a jumble ol absurdities and contradictions as must leave the impression that the writer, instead of taking the offensive boldly in a matter of duty, is cowering behind suppositions and unmanly sub terfuges to prevent a clear insight into the great crime committed and which it was his sworn duty to inquire hon estly into. For an official, who has assumed the role of a fearless investiga tor, who thus truckles and shirks, we can feel nothing but contempt. We have patiently read his statement, and we stand amazed at the effrontery of a man and an officer who will endeavor to palm off upon an enlightened people such transparent stuff as that "oscilla tion" will cram a letter thr...
