[74] Louisiana, Mississippi, Arkansas; and the Executive from much of the trouble heretofore had in this section of the country.

Ave Caesar! With the fleet and army now at New Orleans, no White citizen dares to stir!

The White Leaguers to be denounced by Caesar as bandits are the White people-planters, advocates, physicians, bankers, clergymen, owners of the land, the buildings, and the produce-masters of all the liberal and domestic arts. A majority are of English origin. What Sheridan asks is nothing less than that the English race in Louisiana, Mississippi, and Arkansas shall be put beyond the pale of law, and handed over to the military power. Give him free range, and the Executive shall have no further trouble in these parts. Here is no Carnival prince, as people say, in sport. Men recollect the Peigan business. Since Sheridan paid his visit to their hunting-grounds, the Executive has never been troubled by reports from Peigan camps.

The evening papers print the text of Sheridan's telegram. Banditti! Banditti! Still banditti? Yet
