(Special to N. U. . inocrat.L
WAShINmTON, July 11,-Commis
missioner }Raum says: "One of the
greatest abuses under the government
exists in connection with the internal
revenue service. It is the institution
of triftllig but vexatious suits for the
sake of fees resulting to district at
torneys, marshals and commissioners,
to say nothing of witnesses." Com
missioner Haum says he has heen
trying for a long time to break up
this priactice, but unsuccessfully. lie
proposes that Congress substitute sal
aries for fees for marshals and dis
trict attorneys and thus remove the
temptation to bring trivial suits.
This cannot be done before next win
ter. Meantime an effort will he made
through the United States District
courts to secure from United States
commiissioners regular reports of all
cases brought before them, so that the
government may have ample itfor
mation respecting internal revenue
suits in their incipiency and thus
avoid the necessity for expensive spe
cial investigation in suspected cases
of abuses of power by commissioners.
The abuses to which Gen. Raum re
fers have long been the subject of
great complaint all over the South.
NEW ORLEANN LETTER.
NEw OInILANS, July llth, 1681.
I made a mistake in my telegram
to you as to the localityof the shoot
ing of the President-as it was in
Washington and not Long Branch
for at that time the excitement was
sogreatthat it was not exactly known
at the telegraph office. It rejoices
the whole nation to hear that the
chances for his recovery are splendid.
His death would have indeed been a
great calamity for the country, and
especially for the South, as he said
that lie was going to be President of
the whole country.
By the way ! that was a fine article
ot yours on "The Situation." There
was an individuality rnnning through
it that was very familiar to me, and
of course it was a happy vein of
thought you happened to strike that
morning, though one would think
that after the pleasures of the Hop at
the University the night before that
you would not have been so well up
to the writing mark, and I compliment
you. I hear from all sides that the
exercises at the University were emi
nontly successful, and that the Capi
tal City was filled with strangers,and
that the beauty of the surrounding
parishes was there. The school
seems to be on the fair road to pros
perity, and the next session will no
doubt see a great increase.
It is with regret we see that Lieut.
Jamar has been ordered back to his
Regiment, and hope that you may be
successful in having him retained.
Since I last wrote, the Spanish
Fort Railroad has been sold to tilhe
Eastern Railway Co., and Ihear they
are to make still further improve
ment. The purchase of that road
gives themn the right of way to tIhe
centre of the city and an outlet along
the lake shore to the Rigolettes or
wherever they may decide to cross
on their way to Meridian. This
road will be a source of mnore trade
and travel to New Orleans. "The
more the merrier."
We are having it hot-hot, and last
night was an oft night for sleeping.
The fat fellows go about puffing and
blowing and looking for cool places.
It was estimated that over 8000 peo
pie visited West End on the 4th of
July, although the fire works were
postpolned until next Sunday. We
have no startling rumors, and now
that the President is getting better
all the time. There is scarcely a rip
pie of news anywhere.
By the way! What's that "Rat"
business between you and the Advo
cate ? Where "do you come in ?" I
must have missed a copy of the pa
per., as "I fiil to see the p)oint." lBut
I suppose "coly" is scarce.
I forgot to say that the States and
Democrat seem to he working up a
case-that's a sort of a ripple.
Trusting that you are provided
with palm leaf fans and cool-places,
I am DRAGOON.
