Dr. Dr.t.niiY, coroner, says tho New Orleans

house-street. Tho deoeased, according to the
evidence before the jury, was about twenty-two
years of age, and resided formerly in Waterloo,
Iowa. No definite oanse for the destruction of
her life by the unfortunate woman has yet been
ascertained. Various motives have been attribu
ted, but which of tnem ia tho moat plauaiblo it ia
almost impossible to decide. Tho verdict of the
jury of inqueet was simply that she had taken a
doeo of laudanum sufficient to causo her death.

WEDNESDAY MORNING. MAY 30, 1868.
ID our issue of yesterday, we published an
abstraot of several oases lately tried in this
oity by a Military Commission. We propose,
to-day, to offer e few remarks on the Bubjeot,
suggested on reading these proceedings.
The first oase-that of the freedman Alfred
Pelot, who was charged with the murder of
a colored woman-was one that offered much
food for thought. With the guilt or inno
cenoo of the aooused we have nothing to do.
Whether or not he was the murderer of Eliz
abeth Williams, is not germane to our present
purpose. It is proven that this woman carne
to her death in oonsequence of injuries re
ceived at a ball in State-street, on the 16th of
April' last. The plaoe is described as an
eating-hooBe. We know nothiog of it, exnept
what transpired in the evidence offered before
the Commission. The assembly wes oloarly
of tho oharuotor ucually denominated disor
derly, if not disreputable. The appearanoo
of the witnesses in this case, who had been
prcBout at the ball mentioned, and their char
acter, aa far as that oon be inferred from their
testimony, all go to confirm this view.
It can scarcely be necessary for us to for
mally go to work to prove that a house or
assembly of this oharaotor is a miisanoe, and
indictable as su ob. The oase needs bat to be
stated to carry con'viotion to every ng^..
Of course, we do not wish to be understood
as implying that Military Commissions are
responsible for this state of things, or that
this particular Commission could do other
wise than acquit the prisoner Pelot apon tho
testimony offer od. Wo only ad vor t to tho
mattor in this connection, bocauso tho ovi
denco givon in this case has revealed n stato
of things roprohonsiblo to any community.
Thoro uro many suoh placea in this city, and
they aro in almost overy caso koptby colored
persons. Tho city police occasionally mtiko
arrosts; tho parties aro brought boforo tho
Provost Court, and sonio Blight ponai ty is de
creed against thom, which, howovcr consounnt
with abstract juBtico, ?B nevertheless entirely
inadequate to obviato the continuanco or
repetition of tho ofFoueo.
And this, doubtlosB, will continuo to bo the
cuso as long IIB wo shall have tho present
anomalous duality in tho administration of
juBtice. Why not lot those parties bo brought
boforo tho Biimo tribunals as whites, and tried
by tho sumo codo ? Lot ono moasure of jus
tice bo meted out to white or blnck. Justico
and equity know no distinction of color.
ThcBO nuisances aro loudly complained
uguiust, and it is said that ovory community
has it within its powor to abate them. This
is considered one of tho organic laws of so
ciety. And yet, auch is the present conglom
erate systom of our oivico-military police,
that this community ?B powerless as to any
means wherewith to protect itself from ovils
of this character.
In viow, then, of all those considerations
and diiTioultioB, it is greatly to bo desired
that tho United Statos District Court in this
city should be opened. The Civil Rights Bill
invests it with jurisdiction in all caso3 in
which colored porsons aro concerned. Its
proceedings, therefore, will harmonize the
justico administered to white and blaok. We
haye hoard numerous inquiries made in re
gard to this Court, and know it is the general
desire of the entiro community that its por
tals bo at onuo opened for the recoption and
hearing of oaus.is.

THE ATLANTIC CABLE.
The London correspondent of the Boston
Post says that elaborate preparations are
making to lay the Atlantic Cabio again, and
hopes are entertained that such improvements
have boen made since tho last attempt as will
render success far more probable. The whole
machinery for giving out and for picking up
the cabio bos been modified and tested by
many experiments. Two high-pressure boil
ers have boon added, and will be at least six
times the Btrength of the breaking weight.
In the last trial, no preparations had been
mado for picking up the cable out of the
ocean ; this will at the next be obviated^. __m" I
pie provision has been ?Qado to accomplish
j thiB purpose on the Great Eastern. Tho ves
eoi itself has been mad- fur more practicable
for the object aimod at. Her keel and hull
have been very minutely cleaned, and they
are now amply fit for service. It is antici
pated that she will now be able to move at a
Bpeed of nine knots an hour, even against the
sea. The Medway, a vessel of some 1823
tons, has been ohartered to go in company
with the Great Eastern, the former carrying
several hundred miles of the old cable, to
provide for emergencies. Should a success
ful voyage be made, this oable will be trans
ferred to the Great Eastern. The Great East
ern, it is estimated, will bo some seventy days
out of the British port, and she will sail from
SheernesB late in June or early in July. It
will tilka? three days to reach Boerhaven,
where she will lie nine days for coal. Fif
teen days will oarry her to Trinity Bay, and
five will be allowed for prospective delays.
It is hoped, therefore, that by the beginning
of August, mossageB will pass between Great
Britain and America. The Great Eastern
will take in coal again at Trinity Bay, then
will assist the Medway in grappling, and will
return to Trinity Bay to lay tho old oable.
Twelve days more is allowed for her to re
turn to England, BO that she will again reach
those shores the middle of September. -
