It will bo seen that the President of
the Convention of Conservative Editors,
lately held in this city, has appointed the j
State Board of Commissioners for the !
People's Party of Louisiana. These ap-
pointments are announced elsewhere.—
They include well known gentlemen of
great intelligence and high standing in
the city, who have never been politicians
or partisans, but have a large interest
and will Command a great influence
among /ill classes of people.
Those who approve the movement and
who wish to co-operate in the eftort to re-
lease our State from the great burden and
disgrace of a purely partizan rule, will
give their aid and sanction to the recom-
mendations of the editors, without stop-

And this is the conviction of the great

Tribute to Lieutenant Russell.
Lampasas, Texas, May 17, 1870.
Whereas, on last Saturday at noon,
within twelve miles of this place,
Major Wm. Russell of the Ujiited
States Army, fell by the hands of a
savage in his defense of our homes
against the brutal savages who infest
our frontier. In his death a gallant
and brave soldier died; and may his
name ever remain dear to us: and,
Whereas, We would be recreant to
our duty, and act contrary to our na-
ture, were we not to express, from the
depths of our hearts, that sense of
gratitude which we feel for one who
sacrifices his heart's blood to protect
our rights, especially onr wives and
children, from the scalping knife of
the ruthless savage; and,
Whereas, He was on yesterday bu-
ried in our village graveyard with
military honors. Be it therefore
Resolved, That we, the undersigned,
in common with our citizens, do most
deeply lament and regret this sad oc-
currance, and hereby offer his friends
and relatives our tenderest sympa-
