surprised at what we may already
foresee. Communism is hydra-headed,
and its venom has been and is now
being disclosed in places where it was
not suspected. Society has numbers
on its side, but numbers without or-
ganization are chaotic and inefficient.
Communism is constantly gaining or-
ganization, and has all the desperation
of those who have nothing to lose and
everything to gain. It is time that
every State in the Union should go
earnestly to work to prepare for.tne
onset of the followers of Karl Marx,
for they mean business—not m Paris
and Berlin merely, but in New York
COTTON SEED Oil. CAKB
Among the receipts from the interior
yesterday Is noticed the items of five
hundred packages of cotton seed oil
cake and forty barrels of cotton seed
oil, from the manufactories at Hemp-
stead and Bryan, consigned to C. W.
Hurley & Co., and J. N. Sawyer.
Taken as the receipts of a single day,
it indicates the importance which this
branch of trade is assuming and in-
spires the hope that a larger amount
of capital may soon be invested therein.
The most of the shipments from this
port, so far, have been made directly
to the Liverpool market, although a
lively demand reaches us from New
York and other Northern ports.
Affray In Nigger Run.
Napoleon Smith, colored, who has
been confined in the county jail for some
time past for stealing a lot of corn sacks,
upon regaining his freedom, returned to
his old haunts in that odoriferous pre-
cinct known in police circles as "Nigger
Run." Yesterday afternoon he had an
interview with another colored individ-
ual, who handles freight on the steamer
Diana, and answers to the name of John
Bird, during which Napoleon received a
severe gash in the right hand from a
broken bottle, and a stunning blew on
the right temple, the said implements of
warfare being, it is charged, hurled with
sledge-hammer force by the Baid Bird.
Napoleon—who is "childlike," if not
" blaud "—appeared at the Central Mar-
ket Station last night, roaring and bel-
lowing like a bull-calf deprived of it*
maternal protector. His wounds were
dressed by a physician, after which he
was permitted to seek his "little bed."
The great Frogtown case, wherein
it is charged that Mrs. May threatened to
beat the brains out of the head of Mary
Murphy, is set for a hearing before Jus-
tice Hancock to-morrow morning, at ten
o'clock. We hear that most of the in-
habitants of Frogtown have been sum-
moned as witnesses, therefore a good
deal of miscellaneous swearing may be
anticipated. The public is informed that
no extra charge will be made for re-
Communism In the l ulled Slate*.
A number of leading journals ex-
press alarm at the agrarian demonstra-
tions in some of our large cities. The
apprehension Is iiul confined to the
great cities of the North, where the
most threatening demonstrations have
been made, but has extended to the
larger cities of the West, where there
is a large proportion of vicious agita-
tors. The St. Louis Republican meets
the danger, if danger exists, in a calm
and argumentative way, which must
have weight with reasonable men of
all classes. That paper says that when
money is easy, work abundant and
wages liberal, there is no inducement
for the laboring classes to rebel against
the established order of things. But
whenever times change, the agitators
find in the troubles of the people ma-
terial on which to work their perni-
cious doctrines and schcmes ; and
whether designated as the Interna-
tionale, Labor Unions, Protective
Unions, or Workingmen's Societies,
the fundamental principles are the
same, and the ideas promulgated are,
as near as may be, identical. The
Republican is reminded by the temper
and utterances ol the meetings recently
held in New York and Chicago, of the
Jacobin club of the French revolution,
and of the fierce clamors of the faction
which ruled Paris during those gloomy
months which immediately followed
the downfall of the second empire. It
adds that thcjCommuns is to-day what
it was in 1792 and in 1870; it is in the
United States what it was and is in
France; and there is no reason to sup-
pose that its chief characteristics will
ever undergo any important modifica-
tion while it exists at all. The same
Human nature is the same every-
where. The prejudices and passions
which rouse it into activity in one
country and one era, will rouse it in
another country and another era If
certain sharp points are, by a combi-
nation of unfortunate events, driven
into the consciousness of a people who
own the ballot-box, they will respond
as quickly and respond as bitterly and
as unreasonably as if their necks had
been galled for aires by the yoke of king-
ly tyranny. The fact that they are their
own rulers, and can make and unmake
laws to suit themselves, does not al-
ways induce them to guide their zeal
by the dictates of discretion. They
only know that something is wrong,
that they are pinched in the stomach
or in the pocket, and forthwith pro-
ceed to inaugurate measures of reform
without stopping to inquire whether
the remedy proposed is not as bad, or
worse than the disease.
Although less dangerous in this
country than in the old world, it is
alleged communism has an organized
existence and active emissaries here, as
well as there; and even in Galveston
efforts have not been spared to develop
the germs of this social distemper.
Here there has happily been but little
pretext for its manifestation, and no
real danger has been felt; but in St.
Louis the good citizens are tjld by
their leading press that they can not
avoid the danger which threatens
aociety elsewhere, but that they should
be prepared to meet it, and that, if the
lesson* of the last three months have
not taught them the need of this pre-
paration, then they richly merit the
hsnh experience which the future as-
suredly has in store.
The Chicago Tribune speaks in the
same strain, aud says:
If the struggle must come, it should
not find either Government or society
unprepared for it. Organization must
be met by organization and force by
force. Men who have accumulated
property must be prepared to defend
it as well against domestic as foreign
invaders. They must fight for it, if
necessary, with a better organization
and in a more determined spirit than
those who would fight to wrench it
from them. We have already had the
first warning. If it be allowed to pass
unheeded, the second will be lost
upon us, and some day we shall be
Home Insurance and Banking;
We take pleasure in calling atten-
tion to the advertisement of the Home
Insurance and Banking Company, which
has become one of the most popular in-
stitutions of the city, and, under the judi-
cious management of its managers, who
are among our most active and responsi-
ble business men, it is destined to a still
further extension of operations and use-
fulness. The names of officers and di-
rectors will be found in another part of
the News this morniag, to which we re-
fer for particulars.

Persons having business to transact

Phillip Killey was arraigned before
JuotVoo Ur«.tl. Uaucuck yesterday upon a
charge preferred by Edward Welch,
wherein it was alleged that Killey did
threaten |and assault the complainant.
In his defense, Killey attempted to es-
tablish that at the time the assault was
alleged to have Occurred he was not at
the place specified in the indictment, and
so clearly did he make out his case that
the magistrate ordered his discharge
Look to It.
Complaint is made of the condition
of the crossing of the bayou on Forty-
third street. The road, or street, is al-
most impassable, and work on it, unless
protected by planking, will be thrown
away. Persons who use that street, in
coming into or returning from the city,
will be much obliged if the Superintend-
ent of Streets will see that the necessary
repairs are made.
A crowd of workmen are busy on the
Public Square, and are laying it off in
beds, round, octagnal, diamond, square,
etc. Evergreens are arriving and the
workmen are planting a species of palm,
orange, [magnolia, umbrella China and
The Broadway esplanades are being
filled up rapidly, and several blocks will
be ready for paving in a very short time.
Ornamental shrubbery is to be planted
along some of them by the owners of
property along the street, which is cer-
tainly commendable on their part.
All that is asked by those who pur-
pose to decorate the esplanade in front
of their residences is that the city au-
thorities will prevent the destruction of
plants and shrubbery by loose animals.
If the planting of shrubbery will have
the effect of securing the enforcement of
the ordinance regarding loose animals,
numerously signed petitions in tavor of
ornamenting every street in the city will
be the order of the day, for every other
effort has, so far, totally failed to prevent
the dangerous nuisance of animals at
large in the streets.

The Indianapolis Journal says:
"Like the two Democratic Governors,
Allen and Hendricks, Speaker Con-
verse signalized his affection for the
government, during the war, by mak-
ing speeches at anti-draft meetings,
and counseling his Democratic hearers
to shoot down the drafting officers.
In this latter respect he has a better
Democratic record than either of the
others, for they never went quite so
far as that.
The Journal is barking on a trail that
is getting cold. All just and reason-
