We are, therefore, not at all astonished to find The Louisiana Democrat declaring that the subject of A Southern University is now engrossing the master-minds of the South, which means, of course, what it modestly declines to express, that it is universally engrossing the attention of the whole Southern intellect; for all Southern minds are well known to be master minds.

In favor of that particular tipple The Democrat is arguing. Where our sons, it goes on to say, may drink deepl
