Cochran, Hot. of Dctcneare: SiRii—I have the honor to submit the following report of the receipts and disbursements of the Treasury of the Slate since my settlement with the Legislative committee in January last together with the amount of our lia bilities, and also of the assets, with such other information and suggestions as I have deemed necessary to make: At the beginning of the present ad ministration of this department the State debt amounted to the sum of one million two hundred eixty four tbous. and six hundred and sixty dollars,con* aisting as follows, via: > ' Remainder of Bonds issued to pay bounties aud for volun teers. Remainder of bonds loaned to the Junction and Broadwater Railroad, and for which the State is secured by first mort gage ou said road and its equipments,.. Bonds loaned to the Frankford & Breakwater Railroad which arc also secured by first mort gage on said road and its equipments,. Bonds outstanding and due Jan uary 1st, 1875. Interest outstanding and duo January 1st, 1875. Loan created by lato Treasurer to redeem bonds due January 1st, 1875,. 876*5,000 230,000 176.000 26.000 600 40,000 Ç1 ,264,660 Although at the coiumein e ment of this administration,the Treasury was reduced to nine teen thousand one hundred aud forty eight dollars and ninety eight cents, (519,148 98.) andin consequence of the act taxing bonds andm pealed by the our revenue was cur fifteen thousand dollars (Slö, 000,) it has nevertheless been sufficient to meet tbe interest on the above debt promptly and reduce our indebtedness as fol lows: Residue of bonds due January 1st, 1875. » . • $23,000 Interest due .lanuary 1st, i 1875,.;....;.. J.. Loan created by late Treasurer . ortgages being re e last Legislature tailed about null 63,660 40,000 $1,201,000 Present Bomled debt With no floating debt whatever. This reduction taken in connection with the payment of our extraordinary expense, during the past yeer amount ing to about twenty-six thousand dol lars, ($26,000) together with a surplus now in the Treasury of seventy five thousand dollars, applicable to the public debt, is conclusive evidence that our present revenue ic amply suf firent to meet all tbe legitimate expen ses ot tbe Stale, and also enable tbe Treasurer to cancel our indebtedness each year to a satisfactory extent. Our bonds are held with such firmnesB.and command such a high premium that it Is impossible to obtain them, and some provision should be made cither to check the large flow of money into the Treasury, or place it in a position which would render it productive. As an offset against the foregoing in debtedness the State lias semi-annual interest-ptying investments, as fol lows: Mortgage on tbe Junction and Breakwater Railroad. $100,000 rtgage on the Frankford and Break water Railroad... i 1250 Shares Farmer's Bank Stock a $50. 20 Shares Nationul Bank of Delaware a $465.

Twenty-one thousand dollars ($21,000) of the same is idle and should be invested as soon Total. now as possible. 1 have used every effort to secure State Bondsforthe above, and now have an order in the hands of two promi nent bankers in Wilmington and Phila delphia to purchase them at one hundred d three, but with all their efforts in connection with my own, 1 have only succeeded in securing four, in conse quence of their being at a much higher premium. The payments of this sum has been unfortunate for tlie Free School as the Treasurer has no authority to in vest it, and as it has remained idle so long the revenue of the Schools has been cur tailed to a serious extent. an There was an Act passed March 15,1655, authorizing and requiring the State Treas urer to convert the loam of eighty-five thousand dollars (85,000) to- the Philadel delphia, Wilmington and Baltimore Rail road for the benefit of the Free Schoolss into stock of said Railroad, and by the terms of said loan the Company is obliged to submit to the conversion at par. The said stock is now commanding an extra ordinary premium and pays a dividend of eight per cent, on its par value, whereas the loan only pays six. But as it has either been overlooked or intentionall avoided by other Treasurers so long, have deemed it advisable to wait until the convening of the Legislature and then direct their attention to the same. Under the act known as the Oyster Law there has been received during this admin istration after deducting penses .. But I f ex »4,864 presume there is a considérai» amount In the hands of the Collector this time, as he is only required to settle annually. There has been received to Au gust last, from various sources the income of which is ap propriated to the support Free Schools. And the same distributed among the districts entitled to receive it. I am gratified to inform your Excellency that all the Railroads within the State arc prompt in the payment of their taxes, ex cept the Wilmington and Western and Frankford and Breakwater. The latter, however.lias promised to remit at anearly day, and I am of the opinion will do None of our Bonds are due until Janu ary 1st, 1885,and if we could oblaintheui without paying the ruinous premium, which they are now commanding, our present revenue, if allowed to remain un touched, is sufficient to redeem them be fore tliey are due. There has been received since January 21st, 1876, the date of my settlement with the Legislative Committee, under tlis va ous Acts to raise revenue and from all other sources beloning to the General Fund as follows: of *50,60415 V).

THE MODEL JURIST OF THE PACKARD-CASEY' CROWD. To Uip Editor of the evening Telegraph. The names of ferother-in-law Casey Judge Durell, and other Louisiana wot thies,are tolerably well known through out the country, but that of Chief Jua Ludeling lias been less conspicuous. In order that your readers may know what kind of a person the Republican State government of JLouiskua chooses to appoint to the office of Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of that State, per mit me to furnish you with a few extracts from the opinion of the Supreme Court at the United States, delivered by Mr. Justine Strong in the rocentcase of Jack son «». Ludeling, In 31 Wallace, page 016: 1 The case was o»e in whleh the aaana gem of an insolvent railroad obtained an order for the sale of the property, and bought itia for themselves fbr much. less than its value. The sale was conducted in a aecret manner inn small villlatzein the interior of the State, and m such a Way as to enable the conspirators- to m loare the property at the lowestopoesibte price. , This sale was carried out by rangement to which Ludeling was a par \ a nd of the agreement made by Lin« Judge Strong says : ■"It impossible to characterize this agreement as anything else than fraudu lent. Its obvious purpose was to remove competition at the sale. Jt was a flagrant, breach of trust on the part of Home, aud it was a fraud in Ludeling, with Know ledge of the trust Horne had undertaken, to persuade him to violate his instruc tions and sacrifice the interests of his constituents, himself becoming a partv to the violation. # * # * V Thus directors of the company, owing duties to its stockholders aud creditors, not only combined to obtain the com pany's property at a sacrifice through the formality of a judicial sale, but wore active participants In successful efforts defeat a sale for $550,000 in order that, they might become the purchasers for. $50,000. "It is impossible to.maintaiu suoh. a« transaction. Throughout it was grossly inequitable. That the property was sacri ficed by means of an unlawful and wide spread combination is abundantly proved and that the directors who were parties ' to it and who became thepurchasers wore guilty of an inexcusable violation of coiir ndence reposed in them, admits of no doubt. Ludeling, la is true, was not a director, but he was a leading, of the combination and its duel tice an nr ■ jpamriei ef agent to out its plans. Ho knew its ille . . He had negotiated the summcler of Horne with full knowJeUgp of Horne V breaoh of trust, He assnmea tho controi of Gordon's executory process, and as-w» have noticed wlieu told that Gordon had consented to stay the sale, he declared that Gordon had no power to do it. In deed Ludeling appears to have had com plete possession of the Sheriff. H<* drew up the Sheriff's return, carefully stating in it that all the requirements and form alities of the law had been complied with In the second offering, as they nad been In the first; and he was, as thue evidence shows, most active in «lefeating au adju dication to Brauner & To,, onthrir large bill. * * * "The defendants can take nothing from such a sale thus made. Were we to sustain it, we should sanction a great moral and legal w'rong, give encourage ment to faithlessness to. trusts and confi dence reposed and countenance combina tions to wrest by the forms of law from the uninformed, and confiding tlieir just rights." This is the record which secures judicial appointment from the Republican party, in the State of Louisiana, and it is the government of such men that Senatei Sherman lias the effrontery upon tlie floor of t&e United S ate. te defend fates Sen .

Rennett has not beeu seen iu public since Wednesday afternoon, aud is understood to be concealing, his where abouts to avoid the legal proceedings which the District-Attorney has instituted m>on the reports of his duel with Mr. Fredrick May. Mr. Bennett was last seen here driving down Forty-second street in the neighborhood of Ninth avenue, on his way, It is supposed, to the Jersey City ferry. The probability ia, that he is now 1? tels ' P re "y certain that he will leave tha country for Europe within »few days, and the quidnuncs are busying themselves trying to theorise him aboard an ocean.steamer without ar reri, suggesting steam-yachts, tec. It is said that his valet, Albert Vogel, is con. fined at Mr. Bennett's house with a, sprained ankle. This may he so or he may be with his waster. Be did not ap pear before the Grand Jury yesterday ac cording to subpoena. Mr. Howland Bob bins, it was declared at the Jockey Club last evening, has also left the city. Mr May, hissccond, Dr. Fredrick May, and Dr. Tdghaco, his surgeon, lave djsait peared from Baltimore, and tbe present destination of the principal, at least, is Florida. According to subpoena, Mr. Herman Oelrichs was at the Grand JSiirv room yesterday, and was called in to testily in regard to the duel about noon, lie came, out again shortly after and departed. TliA Grand Jury got. no information from him. he said, for the very good reason that 1 o had no evidence to give about the duel. The jury probably called liim simply be cause lie was ouce mentioned in a news paper as one of the seconds of Mr. Mav, and moreover, as a cousin of Mr. May, likely to know something of the business It was understood yesterday that Mr. Lawrence R. Jerome and several other intimate friends of botli the principals iu the duel bad been subpoenaed. Dr. Phelps, upon whose habeas corpus Judge Donohue is to decide to-day, is probably the only witness of the duel now within the reach of the District-Attorney. Mr. Orton, Pesrident of the Western Union Telegraph Company, was taken to Washington yesterday in charge of a deputy sergeant-at-arms.
