made lo the Navy Department, by an organl
tlon known as tho Mediterranean and Ori

purchase three of tho steamers, and tbo
Secretary holds their proposal under con
sideration. An crroRT is making by influential
Loulslanlans now In this city to obtalu tho
removal from office of postmaster Lowell, of
New Orleans, and tho caso was presented to
Fo&tmastcr General Crcswell to-day. It
was represented that Lowell at present
holds tho offices of postmaster of New
Orleans, member of tbo Legislature, from
Caddo parish, lnvolviogtho Speakership of
tbe House, and that ho Is also notary public
and cbalrmau of tho commlttco to revise tho
statutes of Louisiana, and that tho mllcago
for each meeting of the cpmmltteo amounts
to $500, la addition to $3 per day whllo tho

General is urged to remove Lowell and ap
point some mora deserving Republican, who
could glvo bis wholo time to ono office. It
Is reported that Mr. Crcswell replied that
he bad nothing to do with Stato offices, and
tbat no United States law prevented a per
son from holding a Government and State
office at tho same time. Ite said, however,
that tf It could bo shown tbat Lowell was
not a resident of New" Orleans ho would bo
forced to resign under tho law. Wtuhlngton

It, aa It may be totd.tbe whole thing Is a willful
and malicious protecutlin and contplraey to
Injure the personal character of the Mayor,
and I astert, without fear of contradiction,
that this ease haa not Its parallel In the coun

Mayor differ somewhat, bo Is guilty of no

Henry Waller nominated William A. Talla-

The Chair then called upon all In favor of
the present Incumbent to rise, when nearly
all present stood np. When they reseated

other officers were then cfaoen, as follows:
Vice President. II. M. Knlcbtt secretary. J.
It. Colli ni' treasurer, Sampson Nutter.
Mr. Boswctl returned bis thanks for tho
honor conferred upon htm. lie bad no Ill
feeling towards those who had voted agilntt
blm, as he recognised tho right of every
man to nominate and vote for any man
whom he saw fit. A great deal bad been said
against him privately. When bo spoko bo
spoke ta tbe whole people. He referred to
me political course, anu soia mat no man
living couui place uis linger on any act or nis

llcan party. Tbero were men In tbe room
who would not speak to blm. There wero
others who, although they met blm with
open bands, would shove a knlfo Into his
heart. God forbid tbat ho should have any
Ill-feeling or any spite against anyjmin In

all wbo differed with blm In fhlr and open
dlscnssfon. He would seek no street cor
ners or enter Into no conspiracy to do Injury
to any man. If ho bad anything against a
man he would coma before the club and tell
him of It. Ho had seen a pampblcl which
bad been written In record to himself. This
pamphlet abused him as being opposed to

to v rite such a calumny bo wou'd at least
bavo been bold enough to bavo signed bis

Mr. Boawell con eluded bis remarks by
