SATURDAY MORNING, FEBRUARY 25, 1860.
TALK ON 'ORANGE.
Yesterday opened with weather of the Lapland
order. It was cloudy, raw, and like weather
following a snow-storm. It was well towards
meridian before folks got to work, and when busi
ness did commence, it was attended with a passage
of firearms, that is, there was a shooting transac
tion on le rue Carondelet, as well as the selling of
cotton. It was suggested that parties desirous of
settling business transactions, or brokers having
brokerage questions to discuss, will step farther
out than the flags of Carondelet to settle them.
Where six-shooters are applied, the Metairie Ridge
or the Oaks is a much more appropriate place.
For a real knock-up or knock-down argument, the
new square block stone pavement offers tolerable
fair advantages for the settlement of vexed ques
tions, particularly as one of the most distinguished,
wealthy and prominent bankers of the age, was a
party to a fliticoff on Canal street many years ago.
There was talk yesterday on Carondelet flags about
the sales of ten or twelve thousand bales of cotton,
but t iwas interlarded with the fracas, which will
be found detailed in full in another column.
After mid-day the weather was clear and rather
too cool for general comfort, yet the great press of
business on the levee and landings served to keep
all warm and comfortable. Our marine list denotes
numerous arrivals of steamboats. They are coming
from almost every port on the Mississippi river
and tributaries. Tchoupitoulns, Poydras and New
Levee streets are active, that is, produce, with
trade in general, moves on lively. An immense
business is going on with Alabama. The Carroll
ton Ilailroad depot is blocked up with freight, and
so is the old Pontchartraln road; in fact, it is
lively times with these roads i so it is at the Upper
Canal and Basin, and the Old Canal Carondelet,
the old Bayou St John, is well encouraged; in
fact, the Old Basin and Canal Carondelet reminded
the old residents and we " old fogies " of times of
yore. It in one of the most encouraging prospects
of the times that all the various outlets in the rear
of the city are so much encouraged; that the in
crease of business augments so rapidly as to give
full employment to the four outlets or modes of
communication via the lakes. In the meantime,
there is somse inquiry about the Grand Junction
Canal Company, that is, the canal from the Missis
sippi river to Lake Borgne ; also the progress made
in the Mexican Gulf Railroad towards Cat and Ship
Island harbors. If all these various and intended
communications on the east side of the Island of
Orleans were opened and completed, a brief period
of time would only intervene before there would
be ,amplc business for all, say the Mexican Gulf
Ilailroad, the Grand Junction Canal, the old and
revered Pontchartrain Railroad, the respected old
Orleans Navigation Company, the present Caron
delet Company, the New Canal or Upper Basin of
the Canal Banks and the Jefferson and Carrollton
In our tall:k yesterday the types committed agreat
error. The advices by the Europa are made to
read $7,000 bales for 78,000, and speculators took
53,000 bales of cotton, when we wrote spinners.
It should be spinners in place of speculators.
There is a great difference on the Liverpool flags
between a spinner and a speculator.
There was some talk on Carondelet street yester
day about the King. The King, in fact, has many
ulbject. Some of them are paying their respects,
their devoirs at 4,500,000 bales; others are figuring
below, and then others are figuring above. Pos
sibly it will be well to pIt the King up at auction,
or rather in the way of sweepstakes. Nothing has
yet transpired to induce its to change our maximum
figures for four millions five hundred thousand
The receipts proper at this port, up to last even
ing, foot up 1,721,7"1, bales. The receipts at all
the ports, according to the official figures, with
some unofficial, but itl the main correct, foot iup to
31,40,84-2 bales. There is some difference in the
stock at Memphis. The commercial article of the
Memphis Bulletin of the 13lth inst. made it 3:,000
bales. A price current from Messrs. Gunnis & Co.,
of the 1ith inst., makes the stock there 4r,130 bales.
It would be well that these differences should be
rectified. We in our table a few days since as
sumed 30,000 bales as the stock. If the figures
40,130 are corroborated, we may look for Wednes
day next, the 2!1th inst., the entire crop of last
year, say 3,i51,401 bales, as being covered, that is,
being at light. We ought to expect-that is, the
talk leads to the expectation-that the money
market of the great South should rule easy, irre
spective of what may take place in Europe and
The mails failed yesterday, and we suppose they
will continue to fail. They failed by both routes.
If we had the Florida route organized, or a schedule
for two mails daily, we think we might be sure of
three mails per week. There are remaining in tt e
lobby of the Post-Office about one hundred bags of
mail matter. It is hoped there will be a reduction
on postage when delivered. The newspapers, par
ticularly, will improve by keeping a few days
longer. In the meantime, the inquiry is a very
pertinent one, whether, in the appropriation bill
for the Post-Office Department, there is not pro
vision made to allow Col. Marks, Postmaster, more
clerks-further assistance. Quien sabe? We have
the pleasure of announcing to the residents of our
seashore suburbs that the great New Orleans and
Mobile mail contractors have at last found a boat
to take the mails to the various landings, as also to
convey passengers; and that it is intended the boat
shall leave this evening, on the arrival of the 3,
P. M. Pontchartrain Railroad cars. "Eh, hea,! "

Tat UNITED STATES v Vi. ThE STErAMSHU P PUILA
oELPHIA.-It will be remembered that when Cap
taoin Harry Maury, Frank Anderson, Fayssoux and
Scott were arrested at the Balize on suspicion of
being about to embark upon another Nicaraguan
expedition, the steamship Philadelphia was also
seized for having hidden in her hold a large quan
tity of arms and munitions of war. It will also be
remembered that the trial of the above parties re
oulted, in their acquittal, there being no proof, that
they intended invading any foreign country, and
there being nothing to show any connection be
tween them and the arms and munitions on board
the Philadelphia-it yet remaining a mystery by
whom and for whom said arms and munitions were
put on board said steamship.
The libel against the Philadelphia was insti
tuted immediately after the discharge of the
suspected filibusters, and the case has been before
the U. S. District Court ever since. Judge Mc
Caleb has at last given his decision, a lengthy and
elaborate document, dismissing the libel. Counsel
in this case were U. S. District Attorney Miller for
Government, and Win. H. Hunt, Esq., for the
Steamship Company owning the Philadelphia.
Judge McCaleb's decision is as follows:
For the reasons here given, I am clearly of
opinion that no decree of forfeiture can be rendered
against this vessel, and that the libel must be dis
missed. I am,however, of the opinion that there
was probable cause for the seizure of the vessel,
and shall grant a certificate to that effect.
DEATH OF Mu. VoYn.-Our readers will remem
ber that one evening, about twelve days ago, Mr.
Frank Vose was shot on Carondelet street, oppo
site John's Restaurant, by some unknown person,
for whose detection the authorities have in vain, so
far, offered a reward of $500. The bullet, as will
also be remembered, penetrated Mr. V.'s skull, and
lodged somewhere inside. Eversince the sufferer
has been lingering at Dr. Chopin's Infirmary ; med
ical science being unavailable for his relief. Last
evening lie died. The post mortem examination
will take place to-day. The Coroner, so far, has
nothing to enable him to give a clearer verdict
than that of death at the hands of some unknown
A CohTIDrNCE WOMAN ScerE UP TlHE MOI31EYS.
The Chief of Police has information that recently a
woman, supposed to be a Gipsy, and most cer
tainly a thief of the first class, has fleeced thou
sands of dollars,out of ignorant and supersittious
people residing in different parts of the city, chiefly
the rear part.
Under pretense of being a fortune teller, she
wormed herself into the confidence of women,
white and black, of that class who have more
money than brains, and succeeded in getting off
with their money, though she compensated them to
a certain extent by opening their eyes wider, and
leaving their brains bigger and brighter, than they
were before. From one woman alone, the wife of
an industrious mechanic, she obtained $1040. A
free negro woman was about as extensively robbed,
and numerous other women were deprived of great
er or lesser amounts.
The hag's modus operandi was this: Making be
lieve, by her fortune telling tricks andmummeries,
that bad luck threatened the house, in the way of
robbery, or something of the sort, she would pre
scribe a choarm to avert the evil. This was a pro
cess of mnummery, which consisted in the woman
of the house handing what money she had to the
sorceress, who would wrap it up in rags, and with
much mysterious jargon and manipulation, lock it
up in an invulnerable box which she brought 'or
the purpose: then, giving the key of the box to
her victim, and telling her to put the box in some
safe place, but not on any account to open it or
look at the money, she would leave, promising to
call next day and repeat the incantation, to render
its virtue the surer.
She would appear next day, and for several days
more; each time opening the box and putting her
charm upon the money. The final trick was this:
on opening the box, she would request the woman,
or women, (for in one case she duped two at once)
to kneel with their faces to the door by which
robbers would be most likely to enter, and to re
cite, after her, as she had the box open before her,
portions of the Lord's Prayer. During this recita
tion, she would quietly transfer the rolls of gold
and silver to her pockets, leaving in their place
fictitious rolls, made of lead for the purpose. Her
failure to call again, after the Lord's Prayer incan
tation, caused suspicion, and led the dupes to open
the invulnerable boxes, when the cheat was dis
This most audacious and artful devil in female
disguise is described as a tall, dark-skinnedwoman,
wearing a black silk dress and a black lace bonnet,
trimmed inside with red flowers.
A FORUnsE r Limno.-James Orr was arrested
on St. Charles street yesterday, on a charge of
having obtained from G. H. Vinten, paper dealer
and printing-house furnisher, No. 105 Poydras
street, on a forged order, twelve reams of note
paper; the order purporting to be signed by John
Maginnie, proprietor of the True Delta newspaper.
We learn that Orr has forged the names of differ
ent people to different orders for goods; and that
the parties duped by the false orders will in good
time make their grievancesknowi. Mr. Orr will be
examined before Recorder Summers soon. When
arrested he had on him a forged order on Mr. Harri
son, of St. Charles street; the false signature
being a fair imitation of the sign manual of Leeds
& Co., the founders.
ATTEMPIIED WIFE MCL'tDEa.-Edward Wineau, a
locksmith, attempted to murder hiswife at about
one o'clock yesterday morning, at their residence
on Rampart street, between Perdido and Gravier
streets. First he shot at her with a pistol ; the bul
let missed, but the flash was so close as to burn
her face and hair. He then drew a dagger and
stabbed her in the abdomen. The screams of the
unhappy woman brought neighbors to her aid, but
not in time to secure her fiend of a husband, who
had escaped from the house without delay. MIrs.
Vineau was put in a carriage and sent to the Char.

Raphael Purgaron, Manuel Pore, and Frederico
Rodrigues, were yesterday examined before Re- 1
corder Long, on the charge of having beaten and I
offered to kill Desiderio Mendrez, and robbed him
of $100, in a house on History street, on the 16th
Inst. The robbery was not proven, and from this s
charge the accused were dismissed. But the as
saunlt and battery was, and for this they were all
sent before the First District Court; all three giv- r
ing bail. The house on History street ws a cock
pit; and Pargaro knocked Mendrezdown because
he refuned to treat. On recovering, he drew a re
volver, and Pnrgaron a dagger; Poro took the
revolver away from him, sad prevented Por
garou from attacking him with his dagger; Rod
rigoes also drew a dagger and offered to me it; but
Poro prevented him also. Afterward, Mendrez
abused Poro for taking his revolver from him; and
Pore, not liking the abuse, sclapped him over.
The examination was a lively one. The lawyer
who had been employed to defend the accused,
had been posted as to the antecedents of Mendre.,
The lawyer asked Mendrez this question: " Were
you not once sent to a penal colony for ten years,
for a highway robbery in England?" Hendrez re
plied, indignantly, "Dat-a no questionto ask-a me;
I no ansa data question !" The lawyer kept on:
"Did you not once serve a term in the New York
Penitentiary for larceny?" Mendrez answered,
more wroth than before, "I tell yon I no anna
data question; you insult-a me!" The lawyer
had one other question: " Are you not a fugitive
from some foreign country, where you have been
convicted and sentenced to de4th for murder ?" It
is impossible to describe the rage of Mendrez at
this. He appealed to the Recorder. " Mita Rte
cords, you set-a dere an' let data man Insult-a
me?" At this, one of the accnsed parties asserted
that Mendrez was a murderer, abighway robber,
and a thief,having been transported from a foreign
country, and been in a penitentiary in this. Men
drez at once retorted, speaking to the several ac
eused in turn, " Ah, ha, you, too! You been in-a
de work a-house; and-a you been in-a de pen-a
ten; and you all-a steal an' rob!" The Recorder
had at last to put a stop to the conversation of this
A DAGUEcHEOsrISvS SBOT.-A renconnter oc
curred at half-past 11 o'clock yesterday, on Caron
delct street, near Common, between two brothers
named James M. and Alexander Kokernot, ex
change brokers, on one side, and Louis Moses, a
daguerrcotypist. After high words, blows were
exchanged; and whflst Moses was beating Alex
ander Kokernot, James Kokersot stepped back,
drew a revolver, and shot at Moses twice, one of
the bullets penetrating his breast, and producing a
dangerous wound. Moses was taken home in a
carriage, and the Kokernots surrendered them
selvesto the police and were locked up.
The nature of the case, as we have it from a re
liable source, was this: ;Sveral years since, the
Kokernots were youths, working at the dagslerreo
type business. Moses, to give them astart, and to
make money through them for himself, gave them
a hundred dollars' worth of apparatus and mate
rials, with which they went to Mexico. After
some absence, they sent to Moses $100 which they
had made off the capital furnished. They sabse
quently visited the City of Mexico and other in
terior places, fared badly, bursted up, and re
turned to this city penniless.
Some time ago it came to their ears that Moses
was circulating the report that they had swindled
and robbed him whilst they were in Mexico, by not
sending him the farther proceeds of their business,
to which proceeds he held himself entitled. The
brothers hearing of this, and holding themselves
at quits with him, (having paid him for all he had
advanced them) went to see him about it, and he
denied having used such language.
Lately the brothers heard from a reliable source
that Moses was recirculating his old story about
them. Yesterday, they started together to see
him, and as they were on the waythey met him on
Carondelet street. One of them asked him if he
had been spreading the report that he had been
robbed by them. This time, he defiantly admitted
the fact that he had circulated such a report. One
of the brothers then said, "You're a d-d lying
scoundrel!" Moses struck him, and the fight took
place and resulted as above described.

At Damascus, where our Vice Consul had been
