The consideration of the paving of East Bay waa post
poned to the next meeting.
The bill for tbe Innr-aso of the pay of the police being
brought up for ratification, Alderman RAVENEL made
the foUowing remarks :
It may be unparliamentary, Mr. Mayor and gentle
men, that an offort should be made to arrest a bill when
called up for ratification; but I am Induced to aak the
patience of Connell, while I give a few brief reasons for
this rather novel sud certainly unusual course:
When this bill was dobated, you are all aware of my
having opposed it on 1 be score not only of Inexpediency,
but of inability In the Treasury to carry out ita provi
In tho estimates of the year, no such provision waa
made. The Treasury has, with great difficulty, been
able to meet the demands upon It; and. at this moment,
when our Fire Department has to be cherished and
their reasonable demands mot with promptness-our
public buildings requiring necessary repairs in order to
preserve them-our needy poor asking relief at the
doors of our alms-house and other chun able Institu
tions-you have decroe t that upwards of $30,000 per
annum shaU bo added to your expenses. How ia this
to be met? With difficulty, and at an expense of $1600
over the usual rate of interest, have we been able to
meet all of the regular and just demands upon the
Your tax bill is already onorons, and by many of you
considered oppressive; and I ask the advocate?, of this
bill, in all frankness, to Bay how this appropriation ia to
be honored. With a large amount of taxea unpaid,
-which, eie long, will compel you to order the property
of citizens to bo sold, are you prepared to vote away
money, without knowing where it Is to come from ?
I see gentlemen around me who, in the management
of their private affairs, act not in tbla way. I feel callod
upon, as the Chairman of your Financial Committee, to
record my solemn proteat against tina bill, for many
other reasons that I could mention; but I may say, in a
word, that want of the money is sufficient, and money
can only be bad by raising it from the people-and Alder
men bet?re long may, unloss haaty l?gislation is cheok
od, be callod on to vote for an auxiliary tax bill for the
year 1868. And, be!oro concluding, I would raspeotfully
aak Council, if It la necessary that I should remind
them of the amount of money already ordered to be
spent in the paving of street-, Ac, and of other matters
essential to the commerce of the city 7
I feel it du? to myself to say that I can not be held
responsible for any difficulty in wblob the Treasury may
bo Involved, If the truth is not heeded, and Oouncll
act? without looking ahead as to their resources..
Alderman RAVENEL e> pressed himself in favor of the
police, but opposed the bill on account of the scarcity
of means, and on tbat account only. His remarks
raised a debate, In whloh Aldermen WILLIS, GEBOTS,
and CoBonovE participated. Alderman RAVENEL moved
the postponement of the ratification.
-heMayor decided the motion out of order, and the
ordinance was ratified.
There being no further business, on motion of Alder*
man WILLIS. Council adjourned.
BODTHKBN BEPBESENTATION.--If the Southern
States should all onfranohise their blacks, with a
view to increasing their representation under the
proposed Constitutional Amendment, the black
voters in two of the States would have a majority
over the whites; that is, in Mississippi, where tho
majority would be 15,8.3, and in South Carolina,
where it would bo 11,701. The black voters would
be sufficient to give any party a majority in seve
ral other States, as iu Louisiana and Alabama. If
the South Will not onfranohise thonogrooy its rop
osentation will be reduced from seventy-five, the
present number of representatives, to fifty, and
virginia, which has now eight, would have only
six members of Congress.

interesting lottor to tho Easttn-n Journal, publish

and wo know of no ono bottor qualified to givo an
opinion on tho interesting topic? ho speaks of :
In Alabama and Mississippi tho civil law ia in

and by tho laws rocontly paBsod by tnoir Legisla
tures, and iu each Htato a Bitnilar code, (almost
identical witb ours, passed at the laat acsaiou of
our Legislature,) and overy man of intolligonco
with whom I havo conversed, agroo that it ia a
groat improvement on tho rognlationa of tho
Frocdnion's Bureau, both for tho whitcB and
black?. I think, in Mississippi, tho froodmon aro
doing bottor than any other placo I havo viaited.
TbiB, I am told, is the effect of tho chango from
military to civil law.

Jackson prcaonta a aorry picturo ; compares
well with our own Columbia in tho oxtont of ita
ruins, and its proaout condition. It ?B boing ro
built slowlv. Evorywhero on tho whole lino of
travel, with fow oxcoptionB, wo BOO tho offocta of
tho war. The towua and cities burned, or par
tially ao ; tho placoB of good, and in many ?nut an
cos, magni?cont buildingB now still vacant, or
filled with moro ahantioa. In sonio fow inatauceB
aubatantial buildings aro going up. Those aro
tho exception? ; but around tho suburbs of all
oitioB and villages, you may find negro shanties
and shelters filled with women and children. In
no aoction through which I havo passed aro tbo
women at work on plantations.
Capital to a liberal oxtont baa boon ofibred to
fiorsons who wished to try tho oxporimout of freo
abor. I think that this ia tbo last yoar with many
of thom in tbis busineae, particularly whore they
havo not had tbe experience nocesBary to make
cotton plantera. Among othera on the rivor en
gaged for the first timo in this business, is don.
F. O. Blair, whom we all remember as tho com
mandant of tbo army corps that dev&atatod our
little village and tho surrounding oountry. I
thought from the looks of tho grasa and weeds in
his cotton fields, that he was muoh more success
ful in ruining our beautiful oountry than ho is
likely to be in making a good crop of cotton. He
has leaaed for three years a very fine estate of
two thousand cleared acres for sixty thousand
dollars. It is located in Carrol Parish, La. This
ia a moat beautiful, and was tbo moat highly cul
tivated Pariah in tho cotton section of Louisiana.
Boforo the war, landa wero worth about ono hun
dred dollars per acre. Now thero is no demand
for them, but are still held at high prices. Plan
tations where the buildings wore not burnt, have
been rented at from eight to twenty-five dollars
i$8H?rf25) per acre, where rented at all.
As I have mentioned before, the froodmon are
doing better in Mississippi than any other place.
I am pleased to be able to say the same of this
region of Louisiana. But, unfortunately for tho
prosperity of the country, thero are too few of
thom. Some have tried white labor; but I hoar of
but one gentleman who is succeeding with thom.
My own opinion is, that moat of the negro labor
of the country will finally ooncontrato in tho valley
of the Mississippi, and its rioh tributaries hero
can afford to pay high prices for labor. And I find
from experience that the negro ?B influenced in his
choice of looation, to a great oxtont, by the prioo
offered for his services. This is particularly the
caso with field hands. Bnt thoso raisod about tho
cities and villages are generally worthless, and
oannot be induced to quit their old places to go
on the plantations. But the production of cotton
in largo quantities under the prosent system is
out of the question. The crop of this year will be
small. You hear various estimates, but with the
uncertainty of the seasons and the labor, an
opinion would only be tho moroat guess. The
crops aro now badly in tho grass and weeds, but a
few fair days would greatly ohange the proapeota
of the planters of this section.

THE LATE GOSDON OOMMIKO'S COLLECTION.
The London MorniDg Post says: "Gordon Cum
ming, the renowned African traveller and intrepid
lion hunter, having quittod this world, his exten
sivo collection, which waa exhibited some years
since, has passed (through tho auction rooms of
Messrs. Stevens in King-street, and it may be
consolatory to the spirit of the mighty hunter to
know that the skins, tusks and bones, which have
BO long kept company together, aro not now dis
persed. They havo passed, in fact, into the pos
session of another mighty hunter, though of dif
ferent game, and havo been knocked down to tbo
equally intrepid and no losa renowned P. T.
Barnum, of New York, in tbo United States of
America and elsewhere. At the sale which took
placo on Saturday last, Mr. Barnum's agents,
Messrs. Wella & Nimmo, siloncod all opposition by
the decided character of their biddings, and ee
oured, not only the grand panorama, which
brought BO vividly boforo the spectator the scenes
and advonturoa through which the traveller
passed, but all the great gems of the collection.
A large skull of an elophant and the great ivory
tusks realized 100 guineas, while lion's skulls and
other oateological specimens produced largo sums.
The skins wero secured in a lot for Mr. Barnum,
who, siuco tho destruction of his museum at New
York has, we are told, dispatched agents to the
uttermost ends of tho oarth to eeoure attractions
for the new collection he is about to submit to the
notice of a discriminating public"

? BEAB IN A BED-BOOM.- On Thursday night a
tame bear, which is kept by the proprietor of tho
Cambre House, got loose from hie kennel and
started on an exploring expedition throngh the
premises. Findinga door open, Bruin ontorcd,
and made his way through tho house. In passing
through the hall ho carno in contact with one of
the servant girls, cn dishabille, who, supposing
that tho bear was bent on mischief, fled, scream
ing, into a bod-room closo at hand. Bruin, seem
ing to appreciate a joko, pursued her closoly, and
took his stand in the door. The girl, seeing re
treat cut off crept under the bed to hide from tho
monster. lhe4 inmate of the conob, a lady, being
awakened by the scream? of tho girl, and seeing
Bruin making his way toward tbe bed, star tod up
in a hurry, completing her toilet in a more expe
ditions manner, we venture to say, than she had
ever dono in her life before, and audod her scream
to those of tbo girl. The bear commenced a chargo
upon the fair ones, but evidently in a sportivo
mood. By a doxteroua flank movement ho cor
nered thom both, and raising hitneolf upon his
bind legs, he looked intently into their faces, as if
to say: "What do you think now, my dears ?" By
this time nearly the whole house was aroused,
and oame to the rescue of the besieged. Bruin
was seized by some of the masoulino ponder and
taken to his kennel, while the frightoned wo
men were taken care of by the female portion of
the bouse. They bluabod at having boen soon in
BO scant an apparel, and afterwards laughed at
the groundlessnessAof their fright.- Milwaukee
Sentinel, June 9th.
CHOPS.-We had the opportunity, a few days
since, by a ride into tho oountry for a oasoal view
of the orops in the lower part of the District. To
say that we bave nover soon as poor a proapoot,
but feobly expresses the opinion forced upon UB.
There is, on the farms we examined c1 OH ely, not
over half a stand of cotton, which looks sickly and
bad, and is almost irrecoverably in the grass.
Bottom land has been so wet and BO often over
flowed that the prospect is poor on them. Up
land corn looks fair but needs rain now, whioh
would however injure cotton. Farmers, as a olase,
aro often said to grumble from habit, and to look
on tho dark side. But we oannot but say that all
the accounts wo get from thom, from our own
observation, are true. The failure of the orops
this year brings famino npon the land. Is this
scourge to follow the war ?
