il-rum the larselite I
Tl e present practice of our people-to bury
their dead within some twenty-four or thirty six
hbours of their decease--seems reprehensible in
many respects. The peril of premature burial is
obvions. We know so little of the theory and
c-udition of death, even in our present state of
med'cal science, that we cannot even be sure
that lile has actually fled when the ordinary signs
of life have ceased. We cannot be sure that the
as irit has passed irrevocably, materially sueak
rig, from the mortal clay, even when the heart
ceases to beat, the lips to breathe, the pulse to
throb. We know that persons apparently dead
by drowning have been brought back to life long

We know that skillful treatment has, under
Providence, restored respiration and animation
some time after all apparent action had left the
respiratory organs and the animated organism.
Hence it is clear that death does not Immediately

Is it possible that we can. in the name of re
li-ion, consign our loved ones to a condition in
which-if one spark of rfe remain, or could be
rsanlmated in them- it must be extinguished
uterly, Irretrievably? I believe that decompo
sition, or the beainning of decomposition, is the
only really riliaile sign of death. When a
ihyisical change of this character commences to
amf ct the inert frame, it is probably palpable that
the mystery which we call life has loft it-left it
unlil it be recalled in the unknown hour when, as
we believe, the dead shall wake again.
Btronge to say. we do not give to our supposed
dead the last chance which would be afird-d by
'iir acrient customs, and pri-btly prescribed
r-tes. We do not. as I belhiee our fathers did, re

the rate of about five pounds a night for
their work, and one guine a night in the pro

'wenty pounds a night in London, and ffteen in

that the literary element should be equally recog

Mi,,utes read and approved. Mr. Thos. H. Shields
tendered his resignation as a member of the
board. Accepted and spread upon the minutes.
Various reports were read, among which was one
from the normal schools committee, showing that
everything was going on favorably, the pupils
inoceasing In number and advancing rapidly in
tLtir studies. The committee on teachers sub
mi'ted a report recommending leave of absence,
without pay, to sundry lady teachers who are in
feeble health, and require change of air and re
laxation from their onerous duties. The same
committee also urged In the strongest manner the
appointment of Miss Smith to the first vacancy
anong the lady teachers which may occur. This
young lady has been recommended in exceedingly
flattering terms by Gen. tBuchanan, the military
conmsander of this district. It is theonly instance
in which the general has manifested any special
interest with regard to the appointment of a
teacher in the public schools, and the committee

met last evenling.
A commnnication from Mrs. E. N. Simpson was
read, complaining that her Ihttie son had recently
found on Dauphin street, near Canal, a diamond
ring; that thi ring bad been taken from him by
an unknown police oficer: that this officer had
failed to report the circumstance, and that the
matter had been, by the writer of the eonamani
cation, referred to the chief of police without any
satisfactory result. 8he, therefore, brought the
matter before the board.
A communincation from the chief of police was
also read in relation to this matter. It stated that
the son of Mrs. Simpson had been coanfroated
with Vry poleeman who could have been in the
vicinity of the place where the ring was wld to
ha'e been fQOnd, ael tshq I raf4tie to f dMfo I
aniy of them as the recipient of tae ring. While t
presenting this statement, however, 'ae chief of
poliee denied the jnnadiction of the . lard in the
matter at all, and also inclosed a letter from lre.
-impson to the secretary for civil affaks at head- 1
quarters, which had been referred back to him,
the chief of police, for information.
This communication having been read, was pro- I
nounced disrespectful by the board, and a com.
mittee of three was appointed to wait upon Gea.

Officer W. McCann, First District, charged with
cowhiditg a citizen without provocation, was
dismissed from the force.

robbery being committed there on the same night, d
was dismissed from the force.
Charges against Officers John Beattie, B. lell

Tnu FnoorTNro oP Ms. SoasIexse.-The first
reports which reached us yest*rday through the
uo ual channels.concerning a shooting affray which I
ocurred on Tuesday morning in a sash factory on
'Tr(me street, were very inaccurate and tanm- f
plete. The wounded man, whose name we gave I
as Clarinki, was in reality Samuel C. Sorensen, a
D'ne by birth, but a resident of this State for
.many years, and an ex.member of the 7th Loulisi
rsta inianry. The man who shot him is Philip IL
Witta, with who Sorensen was employed in the I,
factory in question. At noon on the day the
sbooting occurred, the wcunded man, who had c
been conveyed to the Charity Hospital,died there. c
A pst mortem examrnation was made by Dr. e
Warren Stone,Jr., who gave the following cerit
Lcalte i tl.e result of his investigation, viz:
" NEW ORLEANs, June 2, 186t.
' This is to certify that I have held a post mor. -
tem examination upon the body of Charles Soren
son, who cied in the Charity lio.pital this day,
a d found five nenshot wounds. Three were flesh
wounds, one being in the oack, onein the left arm,
and one in the right loure-arm; the other two pen- p
etrating, respectively, the thoracic ned abdominal a
cavities. These two latter wounds created such t
an excessive amount of hemorrhage that I con- t
eider them the cause of his death.

Considerable excitement was created Is tbh
city, on Saturday, by a report circulated abroad
that Mr. John A. Crabtree. father of Lotta, had

It is represented that be took away with him
35,f000 In money, several valuable watohes, me

letter bearing no post-mark incloalng four ha
dred dollars. The young actrses was terribly
o stressed by the event, and will receive the
sympathy of the community generally.
The money which Crabtre took away with him
,s said to cansist of $26,000 in sevea thirties and
l10,000 in greeubaclks. It seemuomewhnatrangs
that to large a sum of money should be carried
about in a trunk, but we understood the lnstrna

on Thursday evening Crabtre left the leelede
after some domestic dflloulty and went to the

large amount of money. Thin party, seing(kab

-he believes his departure was the result merely
of temporary feeling, and that he will "torn up
