G. W. MoCRANIE, witer. MONROE, LA., FEBRUARY 20. 1874. NEW TEMPEBANlCE CRUSADE. In portions of the State of Ohio, the women are waging a fierce war against the sale of all intoxicating drinks. The plan is a very simple one, in its way: the women of a town get together and visit, in a body, a place of business where intoxicating drinks are sold. The means of reformation employed, are singing and prayer. These ladies of Ohio enter a saloon, and, if permit ted, begin to sing, and then kneel and pray. If the keeper of the saloon proves contumacious, the ladies then with draw, and begin singing and praying in the street in front of the offending saloon. In Ohio, the plan, judged by results, has worked very well; whole towns are now left without a whiskey shop. In some places, more than twenty dealers in whisky have signed the pledge, not to sell whisky. But will not the lovers of strong drink still indulge their thirst, at what ever cost, or sacrifice it may require? We have noticed that...

WAsmieTONr, Feb. 8.-Sec'y Rich ardson has,i4t appears, again demon strated Jtat -mlives and learns. le now states that instead of a deficit of $42,000,000, which he feared a short time since, he is convinced that It will be safe to drop twelve and call it thirty millions. He sujests that instead of mnakinga loan of any sort, this defi ciency can be supplied by increasing the tax on tobacco of all grades to 82 cents a pound, the present rates being 20, and by raising the tax on whisky from seventy cents to one dolla- pe. gallon. Meantime, the Ways and Mean Committee still hold to their beliel that the deficiency is not likely to ex. ceed $15,000,000, and that the Secretary is merely aztbitious of paying off s part of the debt, and cries ,"deficiency' to obtain the wherewithal. They also continue to assert that an increase o1 tax on whisky to eighty cents pen gallon is all that is necessary to be clone. DAWEB ON TH...

Hayes, of Claiborne, in which he says: ,"If the farmers near Monroe desire the organization of a grange, and will notify me of the fact (I being the Deputy for Ouachita appointed by the Master of the State grange,) I will come down and organize them, and then advise the appointment of one of their number as Deputy for the parish, bywhich means, I think, that not only your parish, but North Louisiana, by the aid of other Deputies, may be pretty well organized." Col. Hayes, himselt a thorough farmer, commends in high terms the objects and workings of the Grangers. Without knowing anything of the inner workings of this Order, we never theless, say to our readers that we believe the purposes aimed at by the Grangers are not only praiseworthy, but stand on the very highest ground in the plan to revive the producing ca pacity of the country and to r...

MONROE, LA., MfARCH 20, 1874. CUBAN WAR. The Cubans of late have gained con siderable advantages over the Spaniads in Cuba. The New York Herald says : ",The decree of the Captain General ordering the mobilization of the volun teers and the enrollment of all men capable of bearing arms is producing the results we anticipated. The Cubans forced to take up arms are flocking to the insurgent standard. Our corres pondent at Manzanillo informs us that numerous desertions of the Cuban vol unteers have taken place from the neighboring camps, and the same re bellious disposition is manifesting itself through the island. So far from the decree of the Captain General securing peace. it will'only fan to fiercer flame the insurrection. The Cuban struggle is only about to become really serious." Some of the refugees lom the Cuba conscription, who lately arrived in New York, were taken out of the port of Havana, stowed away ito flour barrels, headed up and piled up among the other freight,so as to...

Our town has been for the past two days unusually excited over the arrival of the child wonder, in the person of Dero Edward Chambers, who has here tofore had mention in the columns of the Times. Doro Chambers the subject of this notice, was born in Barren county, on Skegg's Creek, on the 11th day of August, 1871, and at the time of birth was characterized by nothing unusual to ordinary children. When about three months old he began to fleshen, and soon began to attract serious atten tion of his parents and immediate friends. His accumulation of fat has been uninterrupted,and now he exhibits an obesity of huge uldermanic propor tions. We visited him on yesterday and made a careful examination and meas urement, which we give to the curious public.
