FROM THE L'KKXCII.
At about three miles and a half to the
-est otKoeboUe is situated a dirty and
-iierable village called Laten.' There
are only a iew fbherageti there. The
coast U barren and inhoapi table. The
tea shuts in its whito beh of shingles,
divided from place to place by immense
rocks; and when it is stormy, yon can
hetr the distant rumbling of the "Mon
de Monmuson," an immense funnel,
which suck up thej fishing boat that go
too near it. At low tide, the women go
ftnd pick up shells among the sea-wrack,
whilst the men aid busy in the fields.
The fishermen are some of them stationed
it St. Martin de Re; ethers at La Koch
He, tbat old Hngnmot port, fortified by
towers and ramparts. Along the coast
are vast marshes, overgrown with mush
rooms, and bordered by thyme. I started
one morning in the mouth of September,
before sunrise, with Captain Tailhadea.
We had spent the night at Porlneuf,
where, Heur-Admiral B'urde had" enter
tained ub, and at dawn we had left bis-
hospitable hotihr, wiih our gnus on oar
ihouhlsrs, our game bugs, und our pipes
The lirst rays nf the eun dissipated the
for, and we saw the sparkling ocean
The islands of Re and Oleron were visible
on the horizon like two black spots, and
some sloops were tacking about, their
sails spread to enter Ln Kochelle. After
five bourn of a painful march, wc found
ourselves on the coast ot Li RApentie,
which is the most barren pert of that arid
bore.
Now," said Tailhades, "let ns try to
find oat where we are. Here is the Saot
da Hone; the coata-guard's but ought to
be over there; ami since we are the strong
est, we will m ike a raid on that solitary
official's breakfast. Did I not pay so t
Do you not ace the curling smoke Let
hi bear to the right; we shall get a break
fast in that direction."
The coast-guard received us with open
arms, and having given our dogs nn itn
menae basin oi eonp, we did honor to the
promiscuous breakfast. If i spend to
much lime in briuging before my. readers
the leeettd of the "Repentie." it is that I
thought it indiapeosibie to transport them
lo tbe place where it was related to me;
o that they may forgive its simplicity
on accouut of its truth, for I did not in
vent it.
I will now let the coast-guard speak.
"Before tbey had built the two light
houses which shine at night like two
stars between Oleron and Re. you might
have seen, on the top of the Roche du
Bone, a post strengthened with iron
clamps, and. eurmnuuted by an enormous
lantern. Every evening the coast-guard
lighted it, and the boats that came up to
the rock turned away when tbey per-
eeived the light. Worthy Rtbard, whose j
ago no one know, ha often told mo i
bout the coast-guard Kern an, who spent
we greater part of his life oonteniplatin

"La MoueUebad watched his nroeeed-
ings, and when he was gone, she climbed
the rock in hcrOurn. By dint of throw
ing stones, she had succeeded in break
ing one of the sides of the lantern, so
that the wind and rain rushed in and pat
out the light. At sea the signals of dis
tress weTe redoubled, but at daybreak.
Kprnan, to his dismay, found his lantern
broken." ' " lliA
La Moartte on her side ran to the
shore. It was covered wtfh fragments of
all kinds; but the were h1solsonae dead
bodies. Mie.from rfnff t& the otbeiy

lecoguized her sonher son Jack ! She
carried the body aweyyand brought it to

linen, and called herbo'y by uaMC,' im
ploring him to answer her. After that
day, she never left heir .cottage, She, re
m. tined like a statue of Grief, seated night
and day on a stone.
"Some itind neighbors gave her some
food. The cure of Lai mi came to seebex ;
and she prayed and cried so much, that
people came from miles around to see her.
One morning so they say she was
fouud dead on her stone; They wished
to carry her away, but nobody could suc
ceed. Tbe water that dropped from iie
rock liid petrified the o hi wom.tn. She
was there, sad and pale, Ijke a statute of
Grief. And as people hdd often bestow '
ed money upon her, the eitre ot Lilen,
according to La Monette's wwh, had an
other beacon put up instead of Kernau's
lantern. It is to this day called 'The
renjtent s Lighthouse. ,

if there is a third man along, an introduc

there id osculation, and this oeeulatiou is
generally about a thoueaud limes worse
than tbe most unnecessary and uncalled
for introduction. 11 the two women hap

REPORT OF THE AGRICULTU
RAL DEPARTMNT.
Washixotox. D. C, Nov. 15.
The official cotton crop report for Novem
her makes a direct comparison of tbe
products of this year with that of 1874.
As former reports of condition have indi
cated, tho States bordering cu the Allan
tie all show a reduced product, aud those
in the Mississippi valley an increased
yield. Prior lu Nov. 1st, killing frosts
had appeared in the more Northern States
of thu cottou belt, iu some coualies of
northern Geurgia sod in tbo district north
of th V n' jice River in Alabama.
Elsewhere the cotton plant was aninjored,
and generally in vigorous growth on the
beet lands.
There is much inequality iu the prog
ress of picking. In some counties of
Georgia aud Aiaboma the horvest is near
ly over. Iu Mississippi tbe work has
been delayed by political difficulties aud
by sickness ; in Washington county two
thirds of the crop was ongalbered, and it
was feared that Christmas wonkl fiud
one-fourth still in the fields.
Fine weather boa been the rale with a
few exceptions, but in Louisiana much
fibre has been lost or stained by storms.
Tbe effect of the great September
storm iu Southern Texas proves h-s dis
astrous than was at first represented.
The amount of lint iu comparison with
weight of seed coton is quite reliable,
rJucm'T trom twentv-Uve to thirtv-loree
per cent., but so far as reported appears
to bo less than in 1874. The State per
centages representing the aggregate
quantity as compared with last year are
as follows : North Carolina 91, South
Carolina 76, Georgia 71 Florida 90,
Alabama 102, Mississippi 111, Louisiana

Two ex-renators of Mississippi have
undertaken lo exphuo tbe result of the
late elecifons, and curiously euough, al
though they are both Republican;, tbey
disagree in accounting for the defeat of
their party. Mr Pease attribute tbe
Democratic victory to tkm system of ia
timidftticn adopted by that party. Beads
of armed men paraded tho country, be
tays, with pieces of artillery, sir king
terror into the hearts of the colored peo-
pie ; and armed Democrats had a way 0
dropping io at Republican meetings with
their rifies and revolvers, and looking
around to see who was present with a
eolemn stare that convinced the negro

auauors mat tney would De much more
comfortable at home. Mr. Ravels, who is
himself a gentlemen of color, asserts that
the Republican parly was besieu because
the people of his race have grown tired of
tbe "unprincipled advent Brers' ' who have
so long assumed to lead the. They
were dctermiued l break from the mtel
lectual bondage which these demagogues
desired to perpetuate, and rose against all
men known to be incompetent and dis
honest. Tbe ex senator does not look
upon the result of tbe election as a defeat
in auy sense, bat a a victory for the bat
ter ekaBeoU of the people. He verj
naively declares : "I can net recognise
"nor do the masi .s ot mv DOotHo who
"read recognize lbs majority of tigfisla
''who' have been In power for the past,
"two years, as Republicans. We de ejet
"believe that Republicanism aeeana cor
ruption, theft and embezzlement These
"three offences, have beeu prevalent
"among e greet portion of our officc-bI
ders." This explanation has the merit
of being new, while that offered by ex
senator Pease is an old story and was
rehearsed alter a visit In Morion at In
dianapolis. By the way, it is astonishing
to see how many people still foil lo per
ceive that Republicanism, 00 matter what
its significance once was, aew only
"meant corruption, theft and embezxJu-
meut." Though it is identified with
tho o crimes iu New York as well as io
Mississippi, thousands "lured by the
