glish words. Most of them are so poor and ignorant, so vain and shifty, that Kellogg dares not trust them in the streets and grog-shops. New Orleans, a gay and rattling town, is rich in drinking-bars and galling hells-places in which men like Pinchback serve apprenticeships. These bars and hells have dangerous fascinations for Mose and Pete, Negroes fresh from the cotton-fields, and eager to enjoy their freedom in a great metropolis. Spies bring in news to the State House, that clever and ur. Some others, heated by spiced liquors, say they ought to pull down Kellogg and set up Pinch. Ole Pinch is some Nig, cries one of his tipsy partisans. Guess dat true, hiccups his no less tipsy comrade, Ole Pinch some Nig. Bravo Pinch! Pinchback is with Kellogg, Hahn, and Campbell, waiting in the cabinet for a chance. If six or seven Conservatives, led by curiosity, should happen to drop in, a legal quorum would be present, and the roll might be called, Hahn voted to the chair, and Vi

urse, we suffer by delay; but we should suffer more by violence. The gentlemen sitting on these benches either own, or represent men who own, nearly all the stores and ships, the magazines, hotels, and banks, of New Orleans. Can you fancy they have any interest in disorder? If a pane of glass is broken, we have to bear the loss. The scalawags have nothing to risk except their skins, stand they are careful not to risk their skins. What can it matter to Kellogg and Packard, Antoine and Pinchback, whether property declines or not? We stake our all on peace and order; but our brethren in the northern cities have yet to understand this fact. Events are teaching them, and teaching them very fast. In crossing the French quarter we meet Senator Trimble, a Republican of local name.- A Southerner and a Republican? Well, answers Senator Trimble, like many of my old party, I am becoming rather cautious in my theories. Events are shaking my belief in platforms. An American has

o the Upper House, we find a tall, pale Negro, with a small head and dissipated face, presiding over fifteen Black and thirteen White senators, who are debating whether they shall or shall not read the Senators in Washington a lesson by sending Pinchback up again as State Senator for Louisiana? This pale and dissipated Negro is the Hon. Caesar C. Antoine, Lieutenant-governor of the State, sitting in the chair by virtue of his office. No Conservative senators are present. Caesar C. Antoine trutting and sniggering through admiring crowds. Dat Nig is sole, one fellow cries. You bet? asks another. Golly, says a third, dat Nig is ole Pinch! And so the dusky hero vanishes from our sight. It is a farce, says Governor Kellogg. Pinchback is no more senator now than he was before. He goes on a fool's errand, but these coloured children must be humoured. When he reaches Washington they will find out their mistake. Governor Kellogg is courteous, grave, and self-possessed. It

l gensdarmerie instead of a civil police! The Legislature of Louisiana is as much a part of our Government as the Legislature of New York. Men who have never before this moment mixed in politics, leave their books and join these enemies of President Grant. Here is an act done in a time of peace, says Curtis, so dangerous to all civil freedom, so bold and reckless a violation of law, that men who have condoned everything else are compelled to speak out. Kellogg and Packard, Antoine. and Pinchback, are forgotten in the fury now being vented on the great criminal at the White House. Impeachment is demanded in a thousand voices. Resignation is suggested, and in fact announced. The country seems aflame, the whole White family rallying to the defence of outraged law. Yesterday the President seemed resolved to back his lieutenant. He was asked by the Senate to state what is passing in New Orleans, and how he means to deal with matters; for the reports of Foster, Phelps, and Potter

bayonets, they might set up Negro judges, sheriffs, and assessors, as in Louisiana and Mississippi, and might send up Negro senators to Atlanta, if not to Washington. Lee County might have her Antonie, even though Georgia failed to achieve her Pinchback. At present most of them are busy on their farms and homesteads, leaving politics alone, though every word from Vicksburg and Jackson, Shreveport and New Orleans, is apt to rouse them like a cry of fire. The session for 1875 is opening unde, at Louisiana and Mississippi! There you have Negro sheriffs and assessors, judges and legislators. In New Orleans and Jackson you have Negro Senators, Negro Lieutenant-governors, and Federal armies keeping down the Whites. Louisiana sends Pinchback, Mississippi sends Rush, to represent the coloured people in the national Capitol! Why not unite and carry your own candidates? Fired by such visions Sam begins to dream of running for the State legislature. If not so lucky as Pinchback h

which the figures count up to four thousand. Four thousand! exclaims the President. Yes, four thousand; and the list is growing every hour. Nothing is easier than to make such lists. You have only to ask for ten thousand; Packard and Pinchback will be able to supply them in a week. You think the figures incorrect? The figures may be true enough. Violence is common on the Gulf of Mexico, where a civilized race is fighting with two savage races; but the question is-how far theo dine at a common table in Boston and Chicago! I tell you we shall get on better in New Orleans when we are left alone. On coming from the Senate, where the Members are still flaming out against the President's policy in Louisiana, we meet Pinchback in the lobby. Cheated, sah, he bawls at me; cheated, sah. The Senators reject my papers! It is all dat Kellogg, sah! Has not Governor Kellogg signed your papers properly? Gubnor Kellogg! He gubnor! Dat Kellogg is a rascal, sah. H
