DB. JEPTHA FOW.IES.
Readers will find in our columns this morning
the interesting valedictory report of Dr. Jeptha
Fowlkes, as President of the Southern Pacific Rail
road Company, a position to which J. Edgar
Thompson, Esq., hais now succeeded, at the sug
gestion of hli predecessor, who used every exer
tion to bring about his election to that office. Dr.
lFowlkes vacates tile Presidency of the Company
after liglting it through itst difficulties by long con
tinued exertions, so indefatigable alld arduous as
to deimand the exercise of almost superhuman en
durance and perseverance. lie his stood in the
ibreach and battled for the Company when left
almost alone to sustain tile conflict, in which he
had not only to struggle against all the obstacles
which circumstances had arrayed against his efforts,
but against the personal villification and abuse
which enemies leveled against himself and the com
paratively few faithful associates who stood by
hIim, and by what most believed to he tie mere
wreck of an exploded corporation, through thick
and thin; through every evil report and all acnu
mulating adversities, he maintained undaunted tile
desperate battle front which lie came out triun
phaut, and now retires with the clustering honors
thick upon him which we believe could have been
won by no othler maun; for we believe thattany other
man would have soon given tup in despair the her
culean labor of engineering tile company through
It woild certainly be thoughtful and generous in
tile Colnpany now to pernit the war-worn veteran
to put his harnessi offand rest on his hardly earned
laurels, witi the satisfiction of contemplatiing the
prosperous progression of the great enterprise of
which he is the vavior, but we thiilk that the Coin
pany cannlot spare its ol d soldier yet, and shouildI
force more service uplllO hil. e. Ire ThoUlpsoui
has the fullest confidence of the Company andl
possesses the largest ability for the tumanagemet tof
its concerns, needing no assistance from any stoure,
yet we eannot but regret that tihe Southern Paceiflic
IRHilroad sholld lose in the future all the adlvan-tt
tages of Dr. Fowlkes' intimate acquaintanee witih
all of its allhir-, with men and things connected
with it, by his entirely retiring from active partici
pltion in its business, and we hope that tile enl
denver will he made to retain him ill so0tue authori
tuative anil ofliiial capacity-as "General Ageel Agent"' of
the Complllany, for instance, that it may continue to
reap the benefit of his experience and industry.
As General Ageuit of tile Company, President
Thompson would find hitm an invaluable ally in
carrying out his own eoligiltened views of manage
ment and direction.
Dr. Fowlkes left for Memlphis yesterday, and
wherever he goes in the United States he must be
the recipient of thie most earnest and grateful con
gratulations of the widely scattered stock-holders
and well-wishers of the Southern Pacific Railroad.
TALK ON 'ORANGE.
There were many remarks yesterday on the fine
weather, with oft-repeated expressions that it
might continue for fifteen days. It was taken ad.
vantage of by all having anything to do: in fact,
the stones in the streets moved, or were moved,
with great rapidity. On the great levee and land
ings it was all bnstle and activity, particularly from
opposite the triangle buildings to the lower termi
nus of the sugar depot, opposite St. Peter street.
Our marine register denotes that the receipts 1
of Western products continue free, as well as those
of King Cotton. Of sugar, it appears the receipts
since the 1st of September have been 4590 Ilogs
hetlis against 1885 hogsheads for the same time
last year. According to these figures, there has
been a large quantity of sugar held over from last
year. We do not think there can be any conflict
in our figures. The inquiry is made, how much
sugar of last year's growth is there on plantations
and in the city ? Thie receipts of the new crop are
on a very limited scale. The talk is, how many
hogsheads of sugar were in the State on the 31st of
August? Not enough to affect the general market
for this season. The gimlet rangers are preparing
for business. The eontractors for filling np the
batture are pushing their engine, cars, mud, earth
and dirt with illimitable perseverance. In fact,
the levee fillibusters are a complete army. The
dirt and mud are invaded with unexampled bravery
and determination. With King Cotton as sovereign,
there are great times on the levee during this fine
Thlking of cotton, brings up the question of the
great increase in the size of many bales now com
ing to market. It was remarked yesterday that
eight bales of cotton, particularly from Alabama,
were as weighty and large as ten bales of the ordi
nary Iales of Louisiana. This was confirmed by
observing the bales at the Carrollton Railroad de
pot. We also find that during last week there were
three cargoes of cotton cleared at Mobile for
Liverpool, say 6845 bales, weigling 1.6855,390 tls or
an average of 5:1t lIs 1l bale. We also take
three cargoes cleared at this port, and flud the
average per bale to be a fraction over 444 lbs, say
8134 bales weighing 3,6i14,009 Its. The talk is, that
every gin and press now erected is in conformity
to the increased size of the bales, or the bales are
made in conformity to the increased size of presses.
These large bales being piled on one of the new
vehicles to the quantity of ten to twelve bales,
bear extremely haitl on paved streets. There is
an ordinance of many years date of the city author
ities, prohibiting more than four bales of cotton or
five barrels of pork from being transported at one
time as a load. That was, however, in the first
period of the round stone pavement. What effect
the large loads of the present day will have on the
square block pavement remains to be ascertained.
There was sonto talk on Carondelet street of ex
change antd freight. The advance or firmness in
exchange, as regards cotton operations, is met by
the high pretensions and advancing rates of ship
masters and agents. Vessels for Liverpool have
been taken up at 19-32d, for cotton, and the next
32d., of course, will send the rates to g. The stock
of cotton is daily accumulating, which, with the ex
pected large yield, may induce many shipowners
Northward to send their vessels (now lying idle)
here and to Mobile for business. Being crowded
at this moment for space, prevents us from making
HON. JOHN RAY.
The following is the letter of acceptance of the
IIon. John Ray, Opposition candidato for the office
of Lieutenant-Governor. tIr. R. is one of the
noblest and best of Louisiana's citizenis, and should
he be elected, the second office in the common
wealth will be filled by an able and irreproachable
lsannso, I.n., Septemler 25, I150.
Gents--I received your letter notifying me that I
had been selected as a candidate of the Opposition
party for the office of Lieutenant-Governor, and
requesting the use of my name for that office. I
hiave examined the groundsa of oplisition to the
administration of onr State and national afihirs by
the present Deltocratic party in power, as sonet
Sforth in your resolutions, and think them just atnd
merited. I fully approve, also, of the principlces
upon which the Opposition party pledge themselves
t to act; besides, I think there is a strong feeling of
opposition throughout the State to the manner in
which our State and national affairs have been con
ducted by the party at present in office. If the use
of my name for the above office can be of any ser
vice in accomplishing the objectra of the Opposition
1party, I shall feel gratified.
Yours, ate., JNO. RAY.

were on the spot.
The assault on the Armory, where the ruffians
had entrenched themselves, was made by the
United States troops and the volunteer companies,
at about 8 o'clock on Monday morning, instead of
this morning, as previously reported.
The following very full report is from the editor
of the Baltimore American, who arrived at Har.
per's Ferry early on Monday morning, and was an
eye witness to the whole proceeding.
HARPER ' FERRY, 6 o'clock, A. 0., Monday Morn.
ing, Oct. 17.-Preparations are now being made
by the United States troops and volunteer military

outlaws to escape.
The rioters have the following persons in custo
dy as prisoners: Messrs. Armstead, Ball, Draughts
man, Benjamin, Mills, Master, John P. Dougerlield,
Paymaster of the Armory, Clark and Lewis.
A negro named Louis Leary, who has just died,
coonfessed that the plot was concocted by Brown
at a fair held in Ohio two months since.
The rioters have sent a flag of truce with a mes
sage to the effect that if. they were not protected
by the soldiers they would hang all the citizens
they had captured.

The rioters shot three of the U. hrmarines during
The rioters were all taken, and brought out of

parting salute. The fire was returned, but the
party were too far distant for the fire to prove ef

A GERMAN MURDERED IN BALTIMORn FOR VOTING
THE AMERICAN TICERT.-The Baltimore Patriot of
the 13th gives the following account of a cold
blooded assassination in that city:
Last night, between ten and eleven o'clock, as a
young man named John Philip Huble, who resides
with his parents in Constitution street, between
Monument and Front streets, was proceeding
quietly to his home, ihe was attacked by a party of
tlhree persons, in front of Jackson Hall, when one
of tile number struck him a blow, upon which lie
cried " Murder ! " and started to run, but had pro
ceeded but a few steps when a shot was fired by
one of the crowd, the ball from which entered the

stant death. The report of the pistol attracted to
the spot a number of persons, including several
policemen, who made every effort to find oat the
person or persono who had done the deed, but ail
of no avail.
The body was carried to the residence of his
heart-stricken parents, and this morning Coroner
Sparkliu was sent for to hold an inquest.
Between nine and ten o'clock, a jury was em
paneled, when a number of witneoses were ex
aoined, most of whom heard tihe cry of " murder"
and the report of the pistol, but as to who did the
deed no light was thrown on the matter. While
one of the witnesses was giving iii her evidence,
(Mliss C. Constance, No. I MoElderry street,) she
stated that the deceased had told liher that hlie had
voted the American ticket at the 11th ward,
(whether true or not, we do not know,) wihen one
of the jurors replied " if lie did he ooght to lbe
killed." After the conclusion of the evidence, the
jury returned the following verdict: " That the
deceased came to his death from a gun-shot wound
fired in the hands of some one unknown to the
Another witness testified that Huble had made a
similar statement, to which he added that a man
named Philip Davis threatened to kill him for doing
it, and that he feared to go home lest he should be
waylaid and murdered.
A GRAND WED. NG.-All New York snobdom
was agog on the 13th forparticulars of the wedding
between Miss Bartlett, of that city, and Mr. Oveida,
an opulent Cuban. As the utmost pains had been
taken by the parties intrusted with the arrange
ments to make the affair one of public notoriety,
there was a vast throng present at St. Patrick's
Cathedral, where the choicest seats had been re
served for the creme de la creme of tGothamite so
ciety; a middle region set apart for the less pre
teotions middle class; and tihe remainder of the
sacred precincts consecrated to the mob. At noon
Archbishop Hughes appeared, followed immedi
ately by the bridal group; and the marriage was
solemnized according to the Roman Catholic ritual.
Curiosity was abundantly gratified in the inspection
of the wealthy bridegroom, and of his young and
handsome bride, whose expensive parure had so
long been the theme of exaggerated gossip. The
married pair left for Boston in the evening.
When a Wisconsin girl is kissed ahe looks sur
prised and says: "How could youn?" To which
the swain replies: "It will give me great pleasa
ure to show you," and proceeds to give her a
TaH WEATHEs continues changeable. Yesterday
was a bright and beautiful day, but so coel as to
render thick clothing neciesary to comfort out
doors, and to set the coal tires blazing in doors.
Everybody seemed to be out friking about and en
joying the bracing atmosphere; the ladies in par
ticular beautifying the streets and flocking around
the dry goods stores in unusual numbers. Such
weather is particularly valuable to the street
pavers; and for the sake of the pavers and the oh
strocted public, we hope it may long continue as it
THE GOVERuEssYF BGI1Na TO Snow IT. GREAT
NeSS.-The great and gouty government of this
great country, which is afilicted with a "smell of I
eternal rats" at home, but has no nose for Mor
mons, Indians, Mexicans, or other frontier or for
eign rascals who plunder and asassinate its citi
zens, is in great glee just now. Yesterday it found
a nest in the hold of the steamship Philadelphia,
with a great and very fresh smell of rats about it.
Over this nest it will doubtless, like a good terrier,
snuff and bark a long time, thereby provitgitself
to be solely a terrier with a mission for rMtholes
only, and not a mastilffor a cr, to bark at orbite
the better giame tlfaltbanfers him' obi e j se.
Bead the report-of yesterday's proceedings in the
U. S. Commissioner's Court, and if you are a loyal
subject you cannot refrain from throwing up your
hat and shouting, " God save the Queen, and long
live his Royal Highness, James the Fourth ! "
Goon FOR THE SCHOOL BOYs!-A few days nine.,
Mr. George W. Harby, Principal of the Panlding
School, in the First District, reached the sixty-third
anniversary of his birth. Hiaving spent thirty-three
years of his life in this city as an English and clas
sical teacher, and having always won the lasting
regard of his pupils by the humanity and kindness
with which he softened the sternness of his duty as
a teacher, it was deemed by his present pupils not
to be out of place to make him a birthday present.
So the boys, out of their own pockets, (stimulated,
no doubt, by-appreciative parents and friends,) had
a large and sumptuous cushioned mahogany arm
chair made, and on the old man's birthday formally
presented it to him. There are few in this commu
ty who will not feel pleased with the action of the
school boys, and applaud the taste of their present
to the faithful old teacher, who was already old
when they were babies. Mr. Harby is still hale,
hearty and vigorous. We hope he will live till his
new arm-chair shall be his loved and cherished
"old armschair," and long after that.
AN ExOITErrEYT IN THE FaENCI ManIrT.-The
farmer of the Vegetable and Fruit Markets, in the
Second District, has for some time allowed huxters
and others to place tables and stands along the
sides of the markets, the same being an obstruc
tion to the public and in contravention of the mar
ket ordinances. The different hints and notifica
tions of the Street Commissioner and his deputies
having been uniformly treated with contempt, the
Street Commissioner, Mr. Fleschier, Mr. Deputy
Guyol, and a posse of the other officers of the Ie
partment, yesterday afternoon visited the markets
and themselves proceeded to remove the stands.
They began at half-past one o'clock, and got
through at about five. The proceeding created
prodigious excitement among the denizens of the
market. Some looked upon itas a military charge,
and stampeded; others remained, and consented
to move their stands themselves; if they' did not
set about it instanter, they were saved the trouble.
No resistance was offered by any of the buxters,
for it would have been useless, and would have
resulted in their being carted oft with their furni
ture. No less than twenty cart loads of taqles and
boxes were trotted off to the pound; and some
four or five tuns of stones and ballast were taken
out of the boxes, in whichthey had been placed
to give them weight, and to prevent them from be
ing easily upset or moved out of place. This part
of the spoils was appropriated by the Street Com
a missioner to fill holes in the streets with. Altoge
ther, it was a big and lively afternoon's job.
d Fmne AT MILNEBent.-A gentleman connected
with the Crescent office went down the Pontchar
train railroad on Tuesday evening, for the purpose
of visiting a yacht which anchored off the end of
the long wharf at Milneburg. A strong wind was
blowing in from the lake, and our man's shouts to
the yacht to send a boat off for him, could not be
d made heard on board the yacht. Some person
standing by, and sympathizing with our man in his
quandary, commenced ringing the bell at the end
, of the wharf. This had the desired effect; the
yachtmen aroused, sent a boat in, and our man at
, last got off.
The ringing of the bell, however, was mistaken
in Milneburg for an alarm of fire. At once the bell
in front of Washington Hotel sounded an alarm of
fire, and in double quick time the Milneburg Fire
Company (including, we believe, every voter and
freeholder in the place, with the boys for lagn.
iappe,) got out their "gallus " little machine,
and went thundering out on the wharf; an alarm
of fire on the wharf always being responded to
with break-neck alacrity.
The fire company, finding that tile wharf was not
on fire, were properly pleased; but as they re
turned, they found one of the amiable Dagoes of
that locality, "a young man bred a fisherman,
about forty-seven years old," cooking his supper
in the marsh by tile side of the wharf. His fire
was blazing brightly, and his fish frying sweetly.
Concluding that this was the origin of the alarm,
and swearing that there had lately been too many
false alarms on the wharf, they unlimbered their
machine, laid a length or two of hose, and washed
out not only the fisherman's fire, but the fisher
man's supper and the poor old fisherman's self!
At any rate, said fisherman had not turned up
when our man, the unfortunate and innocent cause
of his misfortune, returned from the yacht.
If the Crescent office cannot send one of its
quietest attaches to Milneburg without kicking up
such a wholesale "discomboberation," as the
above, the Crescent's men will hereafter, in deli
cacy, go to the lake by some other road, and take
the boats for Milneburg.
EXAMINATION OF THE FISHING PARTY.-U. S.
Counissioner's Cbrtl.-This case was resumed at
11 o'clock yesterday, the accused and all parties
P. F. Edy sor,.--I was employed as first
officer on the steamship Plhilndelpia. SLhe came
from New York; left there on the 19th; was told
by thle Captain that we were going to Aspinwall
on or abont tile 3d of October. Know the defend
ants; never saw them on board the Philadelphia;
never saw any of the men said to have been taken
away on the Panthler. Was never told the purpose
of the Philadelphia in going to Aspinwall; never
asked the Captain about it, not being in the habit
of asking such questions. There were arms and
munitions of war on board the Philadelphia on
Monday, the 3d October ; they were taken on
board at New York, to be brought to New Or
leans. They wereoil boxes in the fore-hold. Was
on board the Saturday night following Monday
the 3d. There was an Inspector of Customs in
charge that night. I turned out two or three
times ; a heavy gale was blowing that night.
Witness objects to tell how lhe was employed
thalt nighlt, hlaving no wish to implicato hiaself.
[Tie question on this point was not pressed.]
The second and third officers, John Dacon and
Chas. Pitman, were onboard that night. The Cap
tain gave witness no instructions about the arms,
nordidany one else oun board. WhenleftNew York,
had no instructions in regard to the ship's destina
tion. She had been running as a regular eaoket
between New Orlens and ew York, via Havana
and Key West. It was on the forenoon of Monday,
the 3d, that the Captain said lie was going to As
1 pinwall; this was tele first witness knsew about it.
SNever saw the Captain anywhere in New Orleans
exeeptonboard tle ship. Wltneos refnuses to tell
how he knew the boxes in the forward hold con
tained arms and munitions; refuses, for reasons
already given. (Witness was here assured by the
Commoissloner that the more fact of his seeing and
handling the arms on board could not In any man
Snor implicate him; upon which he became less
- reserved in his answers.] Wituness saw a portion
a of the arms ; saw mnskets, bayonets, cartridges,
bells, cartouche boxes, etc. Saw no powder taken

York was received by several persons. A Mr.
Larose was charged with the delivery of the
freight here. Witness furnishes the freightliet and
the freight bills are collected by the agents. Wit
ness furnished the freight list trip and hande it to
the discharging clerk. The captain told witess
to clear the vessel for Aepinwall. Witness id nti
tes the printed form in court as a duplicate of the
one he banded in attheCenstom-Hone. As witness
understood the ship was going to Aspinwall, stores
were laid in, as a matter of course. The seamen
would want something toenat. Cannot tell on whet
day the provisions were taken on board; did not
see the requisition. The requisition is made out by
the steward and countersigned by the captain.
Do not know what stores were on board. Saw-Me.

Never saw Anderson or Maury with Capt. Grile.
Witness became acquainted with Capt. Manry after
his arrest; got acquainted with Mr. Anderson

not on the Philadelphia. Maury said nothing to wit

A. 0. Murphy sions.-Is a Custom-Honse officer;,

her in charge on Sunday, the 11th October. Wit
ness was ordered to go down, and went aboard
about 2 o'clock, with three inspectors, and re
mained till 4 o'clock. Witness then went to see
after a stevedorc's gang he had ordered down.
Whilst witness was absent the men came and com
menced'removing the coal and continued working
till a qnuarter to 9 o'clock, and then a man namea
McInerny came on board with instructions not to
let any thing go ashlore except baggage. Witness
was sent for on Tuesday by O'Sullivan, and went
immediately. Got down at12 o'clock; saw powder
scattered about the deck, cartridge cases, several
pieces of broken boxes, etc. Witness' attention
was called to these things by O'Snullivan. Saw a
cartridge box that had been-picked up alongside
and put on the guard. When witessleft on Sator
I day night there were no fragments of boxes or
powder lying about. Witness prosecuted the
search further. Foond in the lower hold three
boxes of muskets and rifles and seventeen boxes of
ball cartridges, five kegs of powder, some Minnie
rifle cartridges, some cane knives, two barrels of
lead and a barrel marked carbine cartridges. The
hatchway was covered with provisions and the
whole deck was covered with tar. Found several
boxes marked X in a diamond. The provisions
were on the deck over the hatchway; witness
had to scrape the deck and take away the
provisions before he could discover the hatch
way. Knew there must be ab hatchwray, as witness
saw a ring-holt, which proved to be over the hatch
when the tar wasoe scraped away. The tar looked
as if it hadspilled from a bursted or broken barrel;
could not tell if it had been freshly spilled. There
must have been five or six thousand barrels of coal
on board; it was moved partially, but not taken
out. Witness' attention was first directed to the
Philadelphia on Saturday tre 8th; was not sent up
to tihe ship the day the clearance was applied for.
6 never noticed any of the defendants on board the
Philadelphia; never saw them with Capt. Griffin.
Witness did see the body of men who were at the
powder house ; noticed them two or three days
previous to their leaving. Don't know how the
nmen got to that point; never saw the defendants
Joseplcph Vianrubia, .r., eeor'a.-Is a member of
the firm of DoVisser & Co., who are }gents of the
steamnship Philadelphia. The Pliladelphia belongs
to tihe U. S. Mail Steamship Company. A letter of
instructions was received by DeVissor & Co. from
tihe Company, informing him that a special ar
rangement had been made with tihe Post-office De
partment to bring the California mails of the 20th
SSeptember from Aspinwall; and directing the
agents to instruct Capt. Grifn to clear for Asp.
owall, without taking either passengers or freight
for that voyage. [The witness prodoced this letter
of instruction from the Company; the Philadel
phia's freight list from New York to this city was
also produced in evidence. The list contained no
mention of arms or munitions of war.] Witness
had no othler instructions about the vessel. Capt.
Griffin never said anytlhing to tihe agents about the
rdestination of tihe vessel or anything about his in
r tention to stop at any point between this and An
pinwall. He made no allusion to any of the der
endants. The Company's instructions were re
ceived on the 24th September; the shin arrived on
the 30th. Thie New York steam packets nsually
remain here seven oreight days. The proposition
was made to witness to put a Custom-House officer
on board the Philadelphiia; witness declined till he
could see the Ceptain. The Captain and witness
sagreed to grant the request; but the Collector then
declined. The request was acceded to about half
an hlour after the proposition was made. Captain
Griffin made no objection, but said he wishedflirst
to ceonsult his lawyer; this he did.
Ciross-E.cnmined.- The California mails were
previously taken by connection with Havana ; this
company now connects with Aspinwall. If the
Philadelphia had left, she would have brought the
t California mails of the 20th; witness presumes she
would have received extra compensation; there
was no contract. None of the defendants could
have obtained a passage on the Plhiladelphia. Do
t not know that during the year 1852 the Philadel.
B phia ran direct to Aspinwall.
u. s. evatee snuron.-ls a Deputy Collector of
the Customs. The Philadelphia applied for clear
ance for Aspinwall, without freight or passengers.
[Witness produced the manifest offered; it said
inimply, "in ballast."] There is eonsiderable pas
oenger traffic to Aspiuwll; it is usually by the
regular line of steamers connecting at Havana. It
is unusual for a vessel to clear for Aspinwall; there
is no direct trade between that port and this. The
application for a clearance was first made to wit
ness, and after that to the Collector. Capt. Griffin
said nothing to witness particularly pointed about
the proposition to put an officer on board, unless
it was a casual remark about its being unusual to
do such a thing.
Joseph ViUarubia, Tr., recaled.-If passengers
had gonue by the Philadelphia, they could not have
made a proper connection to reach California.
MaoEaserey swor.--Is a Custom-House inspec
tor. Was on board thie Philadelphia the night she
arrived and several nights after; was on board as
insjlector the night of the 8th. Everything was
quiet on board; and after smoking a cigar with
Mr. Eddy, retired at about half-past eleven o'clock.
Witness took the room of Mr. Scott, the engineer
and after remaining up half or three-quarters .
an hour, turned in and went to sleep. The last
person witness saw was Mr. Eddy, and saw him
enter his room to torn in, as he said. At a late
hour, witness was aroused by a great noise on
board the ship, as of boxes being broken opent
went out immediately to see what the matter was
hnvinr a suspicion that semethingwas wrong; and
saw the boatswan and others on the forecastle,
throwing things overboard; witness did not gt
near them or interfere with them, because he did
not think he was able to stop them. In the morn
ing everything was in confusion about the decks.
Witness kept a couple of kegs, which he supposed
had contained powder. When O'Sullivan came,
witness reported the business to him, Witness
