The Art of Robbing a Stale.
Mr. Charles Nordboff continues his
admlralble letters from Now Orleans
in iia lateat, be makes brief mention
of some of the means by which the
people of Loulaiana were pilfered, t
plundered and robbed by t-hcir -car- b
pet-bag rulerr. Take the "Louisiana 1
State Lottery Company, for instance.
The monopoly is 6to last twonty-five
years ; it is m.ade a criminal offense
in any one unauthorized by the com
pany to sell any kind of lottery tickets
anywhere in the State ; the company ,
is exempted from all taxes and
licenso-, fees whatever-State, city W
or paorish ; and for these monstrous
privileges and exemptions it pays
into the St:ate Treasury-for the
eduoatiou-l fund-the ,potty sum of
forty thousand dollars per annum I
The company is now composed almost a
entirely of a few men living in New N
York and New Jersey. On a nil
lion of capital they mauke not loe
than seven hundredsand fifty thou.
and dollars eluer proOt every year -
they have establivied policy shops L
and potty gambling dens around the
markets and other publio places in b
New Orleans, which perl etually
demoralize the laboring cluss, and
particularly negro men and women, t
and over which the city government
has no control ; and they have agents
and solicitors all over the State,
tempting the poor and ignorant to
gamble, providing for this end what
they call a combination game," wlh i
Scan be played even by the owner of a
ton crme piece.
M r. Nord ho%gives numerous other
instances of fraud, but we have sase ~
only for a few. [a 1871 the Mis
sissippi Rliver Packet Com,pany was
incorporated by an aet of the Logis.
lature. ,Among the, incorporators ~
Swere Antoine, now Lieut. Governor,
then Senator; Kelso, Menotte, Pinoh.
back, Ingrahams and Bar ber, all State
8enators, and Pollard, member of
Assembly. The object of the com
pany was to run steamboat. on the.
Mississippi river. Th le State wasa
pledged to subscribe $250,000 on the
organisation of the company ; and, so
far as [ can see In the act, it was to4
enjoy no benefits or privileges what
ever. The same, Legislature estab
lished the Louisiana 'WVrehouae
Company, "to promote the interests
of commerce." Among tbe inacorpo
rators I Goed mentioned in the aot
Senator WVest, then Administrator ofe
Improvements in New Orleans, and
~Collector Casey. The company was
authorized to issue bonds to the
amount of $I,6o0,000, and the State
was tequired to guaraptee the' pay
~ment of the interest and4 principal of
these bonds, on condition that the
Xcompany should deposit securities
equal in value to the boakdu issuWd,
:which securities, the- act says, may
be "bank indorsemen,ts or othergo

reposterotsly beyond the value of

uterprise, then abandoned it and

ian ; and he, in the name of the
onpany, is now doing a necessary
ork of drainage at a cost a llundred
or cent. higher than responsibl I
itizens stand ready to do it for.
Even the purchase by the State of
3e St. Louis Hotel, to be used as a
tate House, was a swindling trans.
otion. Several memnbers of the
iogislature and others were oha ter.
I as the Louisiana National Build.

greement to sell that building at a

owpany's name to the New Orleans
rational Building Association, bought
in hotel for $149,000, and the Hahu

ursion of the Wiltz body, in the

Letter from ex-President Davis.
The St. L. uls Times publishes the
followitig letter from Mr. Jeffersor
Davis, addressed to Col. W. -F. Mel.
Ion, a former Confederate officer, in
whinh he repels -with warmth the
broad intimation contained in Gen.
Sherman's "Memoirs," that he
(Davia) was connected with the plot
which resulted in assasiin-ition of,
Piesidtnt Lincoln ; whilst the story
that when oaptured he "was travel
ing with wagon transpor'ion 'and
had a few thousand dollars of specie
in a valise," is thoroughly exploded.
Acting on the principle that biows
should be givon as well as received,
Mr. Davis administers a severe ues
tigation to General Sherman, charg.
ing him 'with a violation of the
terms of surrender accorded to Gen.
Johnston, and with the display of an
in.-radioablo malignity :
MFMPHis, TEtm N., Ma) 27, 1875.
My Dear Sir: Pldas6 aosept my
thunks for your kind letter of the
19th instant, and the accompany.
ing copy of a St. Louis paper, con
taining an extraot from the forth..
coting work of Gen. W. r. Sherman.
My absenca delayed the receipt of
your letter and this reply to it. The
malice that sfeks to revive the ne
fariously concocted and long since
exploded slander whioh connected
my name with the assa-sination of
President Lincolu, is quite in char.
actor with the man who so conduct
ed his invasion of the South as to
render "Sherman's butamors" the
synonym of pil:age, arsoij, oruelty
to the -helpless, and murder of non.
combatants, and who closed 'his
career of arson with a falso acousa
tion agailpt Con. Hamptor in re
gard to the burning of Columbia,
South Carolina. But the question
arises, why did Gen. Shortian, at
the date of his reported conversation
with Gen. J. E. Johnston, suppose
me capable of complicity in the
assas.Snation of Presidoe6 'Li9cduf
General Shornian 'never wag :p6r

Such suspicion. tn I the doiduet "of
the var betwe6n the Stated,'fdespitw
many baseless ccusations, we
can proudly 1oint to a record which
shows a strict adherence to the
usiges of war between civilied na
tions. On what, then, did the sus
pioion of Gen. Sherman rest ? Wah
it not that, proceeding on the rule
of judging others by oneself, he as.
cribed to me the murderous and mR.
lioious traits of his own nature I '
lHe reports a conversatiou 'with
President Lincolo, from which is to
be inferred a desire to have authorie
ty for departing 'from the course
which, as a soldier, he must have
known was usual and proper towards
prist-ners of war. Did he hope to get
instructions for the slaughter of the
Confederacy's President and cabinet
officer., as set forth in the orders of
Col. Dahlgren, when he made his
raid against Richmond ? If the
good natured, charaeteristia reply
of President Lincoln taught him
that murder was not the ' approvd
measure, it seems to have failed to
inspire him with the generosity andj
obarity which is erer fon .in noble
minds, or with the oha . Iy whaiQh
ever adorns the character of the true"
soldier and gentleman.
Armong the articles of the surren
der of General J. EC. Johnston,. there
was one prohibiting military expo,
ditions in the country Mast of the.
Olhattahocolbio River. That was the'
bost eonsideration obtained ;for. the,
surrender of armies, armas, ammuni
tions and manufactories in that see.
tion, and it was in violation of that
article, that the brigade of- cavalry
by which I was captured was scour
ing the count' y .and- freely . taking
from the unprotected people .the
little which was loft to them for
their future subsistence. From the
statement .of Gen. Sherman, wve
learn that a story had been . told,,. to
the effect that I was carrying In
waigons ililions of specie to the
South, and, therefore, we are left
to conelude, was made that expedi.
tion in violation of the agreemenit of
surrender. Though the story of the
millions of specie is now admitted
by Gen. Shiermmn to have *bpo a
lgotion, the,salmissiopi is mna4e in suoh
