DEATH OF NU. R. I. -'cus .-It is with regret
we anounce the death of this good citizen, good
mereheat and excellent gentlema . As long ago
s 1H39 he entered the shipping house of J. P.
Whitney & Co., as a clerk; but made himself so
seful that it a short time he was admitted to a
fell partmenhip. For many years Mr. hamo.u
managed and dijected the extensive busineas of
that house, and he did it so eaccesfolly that he
became a large proprietor of real estate, and one
ot our heaviest capltalists. His wealth, however,
was never devoted to bae purposes, but was lib
erally dispened in good deeds, and in the cause
of beneoleece. Mr. Somner was fifty four yeort
ofage. While the political and mijtary troubles
of the country lMted he withdrew to Prance,
where he continued util his death, which occurred
in Bisaritz. He was oneof those old citizens wh.
gave credit and character to New Orleans in the
prorperous days of old, which have, unforta
nately, passed away, and we record this tribute to
his virtues with a sigh over the reflection that so
good a man should have been lost to our commu

CONIRmIRle cIT IMOR.
In publi, a in rivat aias, a bad be
ginnaig i the alm . hlWMal, pMe~ m of
a disastrous emdi Neither a government
nor an indvid oal n., with impunity, defy
logie,eememy. arithmetle; to say nothing of
the juagese wd, ven in tlwe onmlr spre,
includes all of these. Of all follies the folly
of a bad begining is the moat inexcusable
and the most periaiou. Its generative power
is fleful. The greate# dificulties of finane
ate found in combating the consequences of
initial errors, in trying to work out a good
ending trom a bad beginning. The genealogy
of the present trouble with the city currency,
so far as this trouble is a financial question,
can be plainly traced to the original issue of
treasury notes, in the form of paper money,
in artici; ation of the taxes of the city. Taese
notes would, necessarily, under the most fa
viruble conditions, have suffered a dcpre
cat.ion, in some wy, equivalent to the ilitr
eat of the sum which they represented. II
effect, from the moment when they were put
in circulation the people, by reveiving this
sort of n.oLey, and the city government, 'y
pa& iug it out. have alike been paying interest
on the uncollected taxes of the city. Even
when city money was nominally at par, or
nearly so, this interest made itself to be felt
in the net results of its circulation. It could
not Lave been otherwise. What, indeed, gave
to the notes in question a value di.tiuct from
all othtr clusses of city oblgations, was the
fact that thly wi.re issued in the nature of
drafts against the incoming taxes. Th-.-se
drafts were discounted in the act of t-eir
acceptance on the part of th, public. SU)
posing tLe volume of the currency to have
averagedC fourr millions of dollars, the aterl,;e
of tlis dit count can not Lave been less tLan
four huindred thousand dollars a year.
Such i. the price, apart fromi the addition id
discuunt expressed in depreciation from other
than strictly financial causes, which the
people of tLis city have paid fur
the honor of cashing their own
liabilities as tax-payers in the form of dii
conLted lpaptr. Add to this the further loss
resulting from political changes and uncer
taintits, and from official mism.niagement and
profligacy, and it would not be too much to
say that this process of discounting tLe tax
ation of the city has cost the people at the
annual rate of hardly less than a million of
dolhrs. No one in his senses can d-sire to
see it resumed after the int -'iruption of it
;aused by the late panic on the subject of city
money. Every one in his senses must dis
tust, deprecate, and oppose any schc.:fo
which should propose, instead of eradicating
he evil in this case, only to change its form,
md to leave it to operate with progressive ag
ravation in the future. And it does appe ir
o us that the ordinance now before the City
ouncil, and to be acted on by them next
aturday, strikes, not at the root of the evil,
ut merely at one of its dead branchos. TLe
ity currency having been blasted by the late
>anic, it is proposed to lop that off Very
vell, if this be done without injustice, on
he one hand, to those who hold such currency
n good faith as money circulated on the credit
f the city, and without exacting too much
rom the financial resources of the city on the
ther hand. But, at a time when the ma-s of
he population becames daily more and more
inched for money of any sort, it is the ex
ress object of the ordinance referred to to x
inguish city money, and to substitute for it
ertificates of indebtedness which, for what
vdr they may be worth, will be certain to
-a into the hands of a few capitalists as
lock. Nor would this operation reduce in
be least the debt of the city; nor would it
top the discount of the city taxation. It
rould add to the dibt of the city the intre.-t
n whatever amount of currency may remain
fter the sale of the stalls in the thirteen a
larkets, say two and a half millions, Feu,.
osing this amount to be invested in certati. a
ates of indebtedness at eight per cent. inter- t
at per annum. And this interest, formally t
tipulated, would be only another form for t
he unexpressed discount which attended the c
irculation of city money. The people at I
age would no longer have the benefit of the w
loney, but they would have to pay at the nrte
f two hundred thousand dollars per annum c
>wards making it good to a few capitalists in c
a new shape of certificates of indebtednes. t
if course, this formal and specitic addition ti,
se aggregate liabilities of the city could not t
ut lower its credit in the stock murket iu a f
'rrepjonding degree, unless the inrcre, f
ere accompanied by a proportionate n:;;
i-ntation of its financial abiiity. l;at nIo

'Jy when the carpet-bag mendicauta and " trooly

fa uocny of a gentleman whose simple word is
l- n (.th more than all the affidavits that they

It secms that the Alathbinam convention k
ae adopted a secret ordinance providing for the t
;e ri-ir: and organizing immediately 1.37 coin

The "trooly loil" patriots of Richmonl re
have been practicing their usual strategy "

th.t city during the recent revision. In th
Manrhall ward, for instance, where the assess. o
ment shonas 431 negroes, these "loil" anul air
indefatigable creatures have registered 7'6.
Of course, in pursuance of their " trooly ch

of new issue citizens sufficient to represent w

They will, doubtles, try the same game in
this city. Carpet-baggery is the same every- wJ

Louisiana is the counterpart of vagrant and I '

It will che.t wherever it gets a chance, andl br
try to cheat whether it has a chance or not. ,
Let the registrars be on their guard against ha
"trooly loil" frauds. Their duty is .to keep of
out fraudulent votes, as well as to register ani
1 gal v(ters. They cannot be too careful in ct
repistering the new applicants sent up by the t
vigrant and mendicant committees.
Tl.re secms to be, no doubt that the Black q0
Crook Constitution is defeated in Arkansas by th
a direct vote of the people. Thus the ridical. n(
"trooly loil" plan of reconstruction has feill ps
as to the first two Statesin which it is brought ah
to a test. Virginia will follow in the same
track, and North Carolina and Texas are sure ra
to go the same way. Thus the bottom falls 1
out of the radical programme, and the con- tle
spirators are at their wits' end. The whole tte
scheme has been devised simply for the pur- tle

of the bouthern States lor the Iepublicia the

At 11 o,'click yesterday we proceeded to the

tr<m eiflerCnt parts of the country, all occuuiej

ot flesh paint and varosh, seemed to ohtllrnng

i- the outside of the car satisfied us of its excel

is that the adetraole complete workmamhip ol
the toi ders displays itself to the best advantage.

TiEATERS IN JAPAN.-The Paris Maga!ne
q9ltlts an aninting account of the theaters in
Japan. it seems that at Osaka there are five I
theaters, all in ore street. They are very larg%,
and built on about the same plan as ours, with 0
purquette, boxes and galleries. The musicians n
ase stationed in one corner, and a flooring upon
which the actorg pass back and forth unitea the f
st-ge to the parquette, a curtain falls in front of I
the scene, and there is a dressing room in the
Tbe representatiins iest all day and a part of
tle night. The spectators eat, drink and smoke
duriLg the pertormances and the intervals. For
tLeir convenience numerous restaurants surround I;
the theaters, and turnish them continually with n
hot nimeals, soup and malled wlne. The women
are diessed in rich and elegant coatumes, so that
tLe eflect of the scene it really brilliant. The
costnmes of the actors are often splendid. The N
scuihn is conducted with much eplri;, andaspecial
gianaus seems manifest for tragedy, which often
ca:,res the entire anid;nce to melt in tears.
Besides the legitimate drama, exhibitions of
feats ol praetijigitation, tight rope dancing, etc..
