A Case of Wara-try-Wm. S. Pike w.o she c
Mereha ass Iasuaee Coppema for.0AePSO, a
A suit was instituted yesterday, in the Fourth
District CoC t, which promises an interest from the
sirgular circumstances connected with it which is
owned by few legal causnnes. It seems, according
to the petition of the plaintiff, Mr. Wm. S. Pike. ri
of Pike, Lapeyre & Brother, that some time in n
March. 1S67, Hawes & Bowen, of this city, made t
an assignment of their effects to their creditors. ,
who chose Mr. Pike as assignee. Amongst the o
eflects then transferred to Mr. Pike, for the ben. g
edt of the creditors, was the steamer William a
Tates. This steamer Mr. Pike fitted up and sent ri
to Galveston, there to load with cotton for New e
York. March 15, 1-67, he insured the vessel in the is
Merchants' Mutual Insurance Company for $20.000. w
In April. 1567, the Tatee left Galveston for New T
York. On her voyage, the petition states, while I
near Key We:s, the captain, Wm. Stanton, having a
made an agreement with certain Florida wreckers, to
first bored a hole in the boat and then w
ran her upon the rocks. The wreckers got ti
her off the rocks and took her to Key West, tl
where they instituted soft against the boat Ior p
salvage, which salvage was allowed by the admi- tt
ralty court, though some of the sailors were ex- n
cepted. they avg be" proeeved eo have aeged ti
with the eaptafa for the destruction of the vess. at
The Wan. Tatee then pursued her voyage to New
York, but had hardly arrived there before b r
soltly 9g)he cotton caused net : ;L .oi n
Pike then states that one of the perils insured h
against by the insurance company is barratry of ti
the master and mariners of the vessel. and that tl
as the seizure and salt of the boat in New York fi
was caused originally by the barratrous conduct A
of the captain in running the boat on the rocks
and thereby damaging the cotton, to pay for
which damage the boat was sold, the insurance
company is answerable to him for the full amount re
of the policy effected, which was t20,000. e
This Fetition was filed yesterday. The answer a
of the insurance company is to come. The case a
will be a very interesting one when it comes up t]
for trial. Hays & New and J. Ad. Rozier are
attorneys for Mr. Pike.
About two o'clock yesterday morning the paint ii
shop of H. A. Harding, on Baronne street, be- c
tween Poydras and Lafayette. was discovered to 7
be on fire. The persons making the discovery.
Messrs. Francis tiroudau and John Nolan, at once
called upon Patrolman Gainer. who, breaking n
open the door, found that a lighted candle, left k
upon a desk, had burned down, and communicated
its flame to the desk, a part of which, together
with an account book. had been thereby destroyed.
In the shop was also found a man named E. Brown, ,
who appeared to be under the influence of liquor,
but who was nevertheless arrested by the two t
gentlemen giving the alarm, and confined upon a I
charge of arson.
A fire broke out about a quarter past twelve
o'clock yesterday morning in Algiers, in the rear
of a two-story tramse house, located on the river
bank, owned by a Mr. Mayo, and in charge of
Mr. Louis J. White, although vacant at the time,
the furniture having been removed to this city
some days since. Ihe river police are said to
have rendered good service In Keeping off thieves
from the property threatened. The building is
reported to have been insured in the Euterprise
Legal Polnt to be Deeteed.
On the 23d inst. in the Sxth District Court, anice
legal point will come u"i for decision. Itis whether
a case can be tran.iferred direct'y from the Third
District Court to the Sixth, without going thr ilgh
the Seventh Court. It is to be argued before
The Keox-Henderson Libel Case.
This case, the principal points of which we
yesterday explained, was continued yesterday,
but not concluded. It will be resumed on Wed
nesday next, March 17th. The following is the
jury before whom the cause is tried. It will be
noticed that they are all men of respectability and
high standing in th.' commiunity. It is a jury from
whom may be expecttd a ju.t verdict:
S. B. Sifers. W. C. Sb:ey, Foreman.
Jas. Miltenberger, C. W. S'quires.

The Contested Congreuasoaal Seat.
The testimony for the defense in the case of J.
Hele Sypher, contesting the seat if Louis St. Mar
tin. congressman elect from the first congressional
district of Ionisiana. is still being taken by "orn
mission before Recorder Gastinel, but will prob
ably be concluded in a day or two. The testi
nmrnv for the contestant wao taken before Recor
der Massicot, of the Third District, and occupied
the court from the 12th February to the 4th
iMatih, and was manlod on the last named day.
The record was over three hundred pages long.
About sixty witnesses have been summoned by
Mr. St. Marcto, but pIrohatly only a dozen or so
will be examined. 'len of ihe number have given
their evidence, rebutting the allegations contained
in Gen. Sypher's protest. relating to intimidation,
ilealaty and irregularity of the election to bands
of Ku Kluxes, etc.
The testimony of Mr. T. C. Murphy, of this city,
in part is to the effect that the report of David
Hennessey, Benedict and A:uecker.,-con,;,:etc 1
with the board of registration in St. Tamminy
parish, the two first named having been super
visors-as exhibited in the report of the board of
registration, pages 30 and 1A, is untrue, and that
the only abuse received by the colored race was
from Ben"essey, who, calihng them d--d s--,
ordered them out of the church, where the regis
trstion was taking place, telling thern to come in
one by one, which they did with their hats in their
hands, while wh.te men who had asready l.gis

church, althoigh they were already registered :

what kindly feelings the regi~tiring oticers were
treated in the parish, havinig b.n led, loiged and
furnished with transoortsation free of charge by a
gentleman of the parish, and that after leaving his
place they boarded elsewhere and left without
payirg even their wiitky bibs.

made conversant with the facts, that the new
track which is now being laid down on the Canal v
street neutral ground, will not impair the beauty t
of the boulevard near so seriously as has been
generally supposed. In the first place, the side
walks which they have torn up, have only been
removed so as the bed of the road may be prop
erly laid, and will be restored as soon as the track a
is completed, after being raised four inches, it
which will be rather an advantage than otherwise.
Then the trees, which it was feared would never a
more be seen on Canal street, are not to be taken
away entirely, but to be removed some two feet t,
towards the center of the neutral ground, which
will place them equl-distant between the present ti
track of the City Railroad and those to be laid by
the Claiborne Street Railroad. As for the iron ti
posts and chains, we have been informed that o
they were removed by the surveyor. They can
not be replaced on the neutral ground, as the new d
