G. W. Ic.  RANIE, Editor. MONROE, LA., JUNE 7, I873. MAKING A DE FACTO STATE GOV ERINMENT. The dispute in this State as to the claims of the rival State governments has reachedl that solution which the TEI'ELEoIAAPI indicated was the only peaceable solution. President Grant, accepting the situation in Louisinna convinced that the moral support of his administration was not sufficient to fasten the Kellogg usurpation upon the people of Louisiana-has notified us that he will support the Kellogg government with all the power of the Federal government, and has com manded the resisting clement in this State to disperse, and to cultivate the ways and arts of "peace." It was not the purpose of the friends of the MfeEnery government in Louis iana to resist the authority of the Fed oral government. Its power we have all conceded from the outset. But overwhelming power is not recognized as a principle in constitutional gov ernment. WVe have not conceded, and do not concede, that Federal auth...

"The Man in the Gallery" writes to the Albany Times: A gentleman who now occupiesaseat in the upper branch, but at the time was a member of the Assembly, relates the following : Perkins was as honest a mian as over set foot in Albany. Money couldn't buy him, and I knew it, but I thought I would have a little fun with hinm ; so I went dolvn to his room one evening and said: "Perkins, what do you think of that underground railroad bill ? Are you going to vote for it?" "Well," said Perkins, "I haven't made up my mind yet, exactly. I am inclined to think it is a good bill ; but why do you ask ?" "I thought you were in favor of it," said I, "and as long as you have con cluded to vote for it, I just wanted to say to you that the men interested in it are paying $500 for votes, and as it is coming up on its final passage to-mor row, you can .just as well have the money as not ; you'll vote for the bill any way."

The New Orleans Republican of a late date has the following re-assuring Fusion intelligence : The colored eitizens' committee on election frauds organized yesterday by electing Senator Burch chairman. This committee is not a mere rhetorieal caucus. It means busihess. We un derstand it proposes to extend its rami fications into every parish and to collect evidence to show how not only the col ored but white people voted. If a parish went Democratic they intend to demonstrate the fact and insist that the candidates who were really elected, no matter how obnoxious politically or personally, shall have the oqicLs. Itisail right now. When the colored. citizens' committee on election frauds, headed by Senator Burch, takes the high ground that candidates who were elected ,"shall have the offices," no matter if the candidates aforesaid were Democrats, those oicesr might just as well surrender at once. ...

* *)arliiiat onega MONROE, LA., JUNE 14, 1873. WORK FOR JUNE. The past spring has been most trying to the farmners. Their fiast planting was mostly destroyed by frost, and the Into planting choked with g~as. (JUonz has to be brought to a stand as soon as practicable, if not already done. Sweeps have to be constantly running whenever the condition of the soil permits it, to keep down the grass, and the hoo will be necessary to ro move grass between the plants. Early cotton, which has escaped the frost, will be "laid by" this mouth. This operation requires a great deal of care and goodjidgment. The object is to clean the field thoroughly, at the saute time not to work deep. Deep culture at this period breaking the roots and rootlets of this plant will, with rare ex ceptions, terminate fatally to the crop. brn.--What We have Said labout cot ton must also be applied to the corn.

arachi*ata 1iepaph. 0. W. IMoQRANI, Editor. MONROE, LA., JUNE 21, 1873. -Ii RADICALISM OUTDONE. t Elseowhere we publish at length a basis of unification of the races in Lou isiana, agreed upon byprominent white and colored leaders in the city of Now Orleans. Thedocument Itself furnishes Its own comment, and requires, intrin sically, from us no lengthy disapproba tion. As a specimen of satire, it would rank high in the humorous literature of the day, did not the names of Beau regard, Gibson and other well-known Southern men appear as endorsers, - whose manliness of character lifts this pernicious scheme above the atmos phere of satire and insincerity. But for the names of such citizens and the formal character of the paper itself, we should be disposed to laugh as heartily at Its recommendations as we would at some stray sketch of But Lovengood or Bill Arp. And even with these hon ored signatures, and every disposition to be charitable, we can but receive the Pronunciamento of Unific...

MONROE, LA., JUNE 21, 1871. POISONOUS SNAKES. It comes natural for us to kill snakes whenever met, regardless of kind or quality, and, although it is not exactly right, for generally the non-venomous serpents are usefutl as insect destroyers, etc., still we are not proposing to argue the point at present. But even though we Intend killing all as we go,. it is yet important that we have a knowledge qulifyng. us to distinguish the danger ous llom the harmless. The following simple rules closely obesrved will be found a most important aid in that directlon: 1. Any snake having rattles on its tall and producing with them a dry, husky, rattling sound, is a rattlesnake, and frghtfully dangerous, of course. A rattlesnake does not invarably give warning before making an attack, its is generallysupposed-in the midst of long spells ofwet weather the rattles are often so soaked and softened as to give out but little sound. Last summer we found a very large one in this condition-he shook his ta...

MONROE, LA., JULY 19,1873. LOSS OF THE STEAMSHIP CITY OF WASHINGTON. The Voyage and the Rescue of the Passengers. A letter to the New York Herald from Liverpool, N. S., dated Le Bent harbor, July 6, gives the particulars of the lose of the steamship City of Wash ington off Halifax. The writer says that the vessel started from Liverpool with five hundred and fifty souls aboard. After being three days out they had a fog which lasted seven days. On Sat urday last, at 1.80, the vessel suddenly went full speed on Gull Bock shore. A tremendous tremor was felt, and then she stuck fast. No one on board had the slightest idea of where they were. Efforts to back her off were ineffectual. Fog horns were blown and cannon fired. When the situation gradually became known among the passengers the excite ment was fearful, especially among the women passengers, who crowded the decks, praying and crying. After some time of terrible suspense,they were hail ed by a small boat which came along sideand t...
