The latest inamcisl imeaem proposed by the
Legislatiure appears in the shape of a joint reeolu
tion, ordering the warrant clerk of each House of
the General Assembly to draw warrants upon the
auditor to such an amount as will, from their sale,
realise sufficient cash to pay the mileage and per
diem of members and .salaries of employee
of the Legislature in greenbacks. Of course,
the adoption of such a measure could have
but one effect. As the warrant clerk would be
compelled to sell warrants at say discount, so
as to obtain eash, the brokers would only have to
make any offer they should choose, to have it ac
cepted. Warrants would go down with a rush, for
the btate would be flooded with them, a grievous
and absolutely incalculable debt being thus piled
up for the tax-payers of Louisiana one day to
settle. And all this for what! That the field
bhands shall get their " per diem per day" a little
sooner, that the vultures shall be bidden to the
feast a little earlier. Such are the tender mercies
of Radicalism as exemplified by its Southern dis
Canal street was beautiful yesterday. It was
indescribable, and therefore we shan't attempt it.
It will be an interesting and pleasing piece of
information to the teachers in the public schools
of New Orleans that they are to be paid off to-day
at the city treasurer's office, for services rendered
in January. This looks something like a return to
the good old times when men and women were
paid when their work was done and no: six months
afterwards. We eongratulate the Lsachers and
we congratulate our citizens upon the existence
of this state of financial affars.
There are now in the hbands of the State libra
rtian quite a number of documents, MS3, etc.,
appertaining to the old colonial national records
of the State of Louisiana. A proposition has re
cently been made to transfer them from his cun
tody to that of the New Orleans Academy of
Sciences.an association of gentlemen who, deeply
interested in the State and her welfare, will
carefully preserve them, and, it is probable_
use them for throwing light upon those portions
of the h'story of Louiliana which are yet obscure.
The propositidh has taken the form of a bill an
thorizing such a transfer which, after having
passed the Seante, is now before the House. It
will undoubtedly be there agreed to, and the
transfer will therefore probably soon be made.
The new railroad will di.flgure the neutral

The Repubiican House of Representatives (so

As an evidence of the well earned popularity

it may be stated that for last night, which was

substantial token of appreciation.
The railroad war has beguen. While the b;ll

Chattanoulga Bailroad is now pending boforto the
Senats, (haing peasmed the Hoose,) up comes in
the House a little bill lneorporating the New Or
lesas and Texas Railroad Company, and granting
to it State aid, and up rises Mc'illen and claims
that, as the State is prepared to give some aid to a
road between New Orleans and Texuas, that t3ias
company has as much right to it as has the Chat
tanoogs road "or any other man." The matter
is now in statu quo, aed it remains to be seen
which railroad is the most liberal to members, and
so obtain the subsidy. It will be an Interesti ig
A day or two since a paragraph appeared in
this column, stating that several of the property
holders in the city had complained of the exorbt
tant bcharges made by the board controlling the
water works. At their last meeting on Thursday
evening, the Board of Amistant Aldermen took the
matter up, and a resolution offered by Mr. Mont
gomery, providing for an inquiry into the reason
for such complainta, was adopted.
It was refreshing to notice the preponderating
element of pale-faces which appeared in the ga!
lery of the Boose yesterday, induced, it is to be
supposed, by the fact that the infamous "'civi!
equality bil" was fixed as the special order of the
day, and by the absorbing interest which the peo
pie of this city have in that odious enactment.
The bill, however, was not taken o, but was
postponed until to-day, at one o'olook, when it
will again claim the attention of the legislators
and of the people.

A scuffle ensued, and the negro finally told Mr K.

The Bpston Telegraph states that W. J. Hutch
ins, who has purchased the H. T. and B. Railroad,
intends to repair the track, place on the road a
new engine of light weight, and such rolling
stock as will enable a round trip to be made dady.
It is also stated that Mr. Hutchins will extend the
road to Wharton at an early day.
The Texas Banger says that Mr. J. Williams of
Grimes county, with the assistance of two lads of
twelve and thirtee, years, cultivated twentyone
acres of land, and gatheed, ginned and brougnht
to Navasoto twenty bales of eotton, averaging
500 pounds each. Besides this, they raised 200
bouphels of oorn, 600 boahels of potatoes and 230
boushels of ground peas. This is the class o.
people Texas needs. They should be manufac
tured at home, as well as invited from abroad.
Tbeme sSehbews who begin by this kind of labor
and economy, will yet ke the ownera and the ru
lers of Texas; while the idle and dislpated blacks
and whites who hang about our towns will serve
to recruit the poor house and penitentiary, or go
to an early grave.

Tin sUvRuaOS BILL.
The third sesion of the XLth Congress is fast
drawing to a close, ad promises to die in the de
liverance of a montrosity greater than any of ita
former creations. The measure known as the
sctfrage bill, which was rushed through the House
order the party lash, is now pending before the
Senate, and It was attempted to dispose of it there
in the same summary manner. Fortunately for the
interests of the country, the bill an It came from
t::e House was so erude and imperfect that it has
been loaded with amendments in the Senate until
its original text usrcy remamin ,andit is possible
that discuson will be proioed on oeah until its
passage this session will be prevented. Bom
bsrtes Stewart, of Nevada, an original carpet
bagger of the frts water, undertook to
father the bill, and Sumner is urging
its pasage with all his cheek and most
high sounding harangue. It is generally
conceded, however, tat In irts present fornm
the bill will not be sooepted by a majority of the
Senate. The introductmon of tble measure at the
prcsent time is one of those strategic movements
by which the leading Jacobins have hitierto been

prove, without doubt, that the ceremonies of the

commenced, and the hotels and boarding houses
engaged for the delegations expected from the
North and the Mouth. The fashionable world was
kept in a fever of excitement lest the inauguoral
ball, usual on such occasions, would not beo held,
rad the matter was made the subject of grave
consideration before the Senate. The use of the
Capitol was denied for this purpose because
eome of those interested in the movement ob
jected to the admission of negroes. The new
wing of the treasury bauildng lhas, hoveer, been
secured for the same purpose, and once more

The proeooeding in the louse during the last
week were ounusually lnterestng snd spicy. Ben
Butler's sensitive nature was terribly wounded mn
being plainly told by a fellow member that he
lied, and he knew that he lied, which evoked a
burst of indignation from the virtouus Reds, who
were shocked to hear the truth so plainly spoken,
and a vote of cesaure was passed upon the on
lucky wreteh who o wickedly maligned the inno
cent Ben. The subject under eonsideration was
the Indian bureau, when Butler took occasilon to
stgln"im the whole clss of lIdian agents as a
swindle upon the government. The delegate
from Idaho was a former Indian aget, and ro
seanted the bcharge in the manner described above.
