The mild weather yesterday brought out an
almost countless throng of folks. On the grand
boulevard, Canal, the crowd was large all through
the day; the folks comprising it were altogether of
a different class from the habitues of rue Carondelet.
Though Clarondelet street and environs furnishes
the sinews of trade, yet dry goods and crinoline, as
in all great places, rules supreme. Cotton and dry
goods are blended. Taken altogether, they are the
controlling power of the mighty trade of the uni
verse ; therefore, the talk is, that a seller of tape
las as much influence in general trade as tlhe seller
of thousands of bales of cotton.
It is hardly necessary for as to talk of the large
receipts of cotton and the daily accumulation of
stock. Every one engaged in tile trade is conver
sant with the receipts, sales and exports from day
to day. Up to this moment the receipts from the
interior off from the Mississippi river have been
very trifling when placed in juxtaposition with the
mammoth receipts from the banks of the Missis
sippi. We made some allusion to the returns of
sales of cotton in Liverpool at 4jd., which cost or
stood in warehouse in Iiverpool 6Id. We learn
that some account sales are being returned, which
exhibits a loss of not only ten dollars per bale, but
fifteen and eighteen dollars per bale. Of course,
there will be some large reclamations; but there is
another feature in this low quality of cotton.
There are many thousands of bales in Liverpool so
dirty and sandy that it will not sell for 3d. j i h;
then, again, we are informed that there are thou
sands of bales that cannot be sold at any price,
and that it will be altogether thrown back on the
consignee or shipper. In the meantime, tile talk
is, who is to sufflr on these prodigious losses, or on
whomn are the reclamations to be made ? They who
are closely interested will, of course, know who is
to stand the deficiency.
The receipts of cotton have been heavy this
week, but not so large as they will be next week
and the week after, provided the weather continues
Tile mails failed yesterday by both routes. There
is a chronic irregularity in the mail via Mobile on
FIridays. We noticed yesterday a part of the E-.
ropeacn mails by the Africa was received. It takes
three days now to receive our European mail after
it i, landed in New Yorkd that is, we get a port I
one day, another part the ntext day, and another
part the third day; so that it takes three days for
contractors to deliver one mail that should be de
livered on the first day. IM. '. Postmnter-General
Holt. or his contractors, are filibustering. There
was some talk of a man of war steamer, the
('rcsader of twenty-two guns, having arrived off
old Slaughter-house point, consigned to Marshal
Kennedy and Collector Itatch, to assist in watch
ing the fishing party. Fortunately, the yachts of
our citizens have gone into winter quarters, or they
might he snubbed uip bIy this eman of war. Our
merchants talk, though, that if this macl of war
steamner and her twenty-two great guns, officers,
crew and marines, would raise steam this cmorning
and start for Brazon St. Ingo, and aid in lprotecting
the town of Brownsville and the Rio Grande val.
lcy fronm th-e Mexican marauders, there might
not be cny further ue,dor a Mexican protectorate
to guardl the western part of the State of Texcas,
and tlhat they would be rendering essential service
to not only this community, but to the State of
Texan; as well as protecting tile honor and stand
ing of the United States.
Second Congressional District.
We publish, elsewhere, a card from Mr. Rufus
Waples, withdrawing as a candidate for Congress
in the Second District, and calling upon his friends
to give their support to Mr. Lawrence D. Nicholls
of Ascension-the Opposition candidate-and a
gentleman of ability, of unexceptionable charac
ter, and altogether worthy any position in the
power of the people of the State to bestow.
Mr. W. makes a vigorous onslaught upon the
present imbecile, corrupt atd mendacious Ad
ministration of the Federal Government. In this,
we are of opinion, a vast majority of the people
will concur; for we really do not believe there is
a sincere Buchanan man in the commonwealth out
side the influence which Federal offiee-holders ex
ercise. If there ever was a Chief Magistrate so
completely and entirely detested and contemned,
spit at, hooted and execrated, as old Buchanan, we
are wholly ignorant of the fact.
The strongest point made by Mr. Waples against
Mr. Taylor is that he is "an Administration man"
in other words, the regular nominee of a conven
tion which passed resolutions endorsing the policy
of "Old Buck." This is true, and it is very bad for
Mr. Taylor, who, by the way, as we think, neither
admires nor loves the thing now styled President of
the United States. The convention placed him in
a false position, in one material respect, and if he
does'nt come out and right himself we shall not be
at all surprised if Mr. Nicholls carries off the
laurels of triumph.
"Old master," alias "King Jolhn," don't like
Mr. Taylor anoy more than the Devil is reputed
to like Holy Water, and although lie was un.
able to defeat him at the Thibodaux Convention,
lie was sufficiently powerful, through friends, to
obtain the passage of resolutions endorsing the
Administration. Had Mr. Taylor repudiated these
resolutions at the outset, there would have been no
doubt of his success. Probably lie would have Ihad
no opposition except that which might have sprung I
from the puissant House of Slidell. All this le 1
well knows, or should have known, and should
have acted accordingly. At the last election that
influenee operated against him, and it will operate
against him at the coming election. And the only
way to nmeet such anl influence-aninatted by a
species of Carthagenian hatred that never sleels
and never tires-was to combat it from the start,
return blow for blow, wound for wound, and figh
it to the very death and crush it forevermore. The
Slidellians wage a war to the knife, and if they
are not foughtwith similar weapons, their arbitrary
sway over this commonwealth bids fair to remaini
uninterrupted for many long years to come.
CANDIDATE FOR CONORESS.--\Ve Ihea tile nname
of Col. Fenelo Con nnon, of tile parish of Avovellces,
mentioned as a candidate for Congress in thlls Dis
trict. The Colonel is an American l)emocrat, and
just the man to put on thie track to distance the
old war-horse of so malny battles. What has the
press-gang to say on this subject? What it were
well to do, it were well to do quickly.
[BHaton Rouge Gazette, 19th.]
Thie " pre.-gang," so far as it is represented by
the Crescent, has only to say that Col. Cannon is
a gentleman in every sense of the term-mentally,
physically and morally-and that, should he coln
sent to run, and be elected, the Third Congres
sional District will have the noblest sort of a Rep
resentative at Washington the next two sessions
of the lower branch of the Federal Legislature.
CoNFInrED.-Some time ago a statement was pub
lished in the North American, taken from the New
port Gazette, Perry county, Pa., to the effect that
a Mr. Black, of Newport. had died in conseptence
of an incision made by a rooster with his spurs in
the arteries of the hand, inmitating previous to his
death tie flapping and crowing of a rooster. Tihe
statement had gone the rounds of the press, ac
eompanied in most by comments of an incredulous
nature. But it appearsto C have been true, never
theless. The Harrisburg Patriot is infornmed by a
gentleman from Newport, who was present at Mr.
Black's death, that the account published in the
Gazette of that place is strictly true in every par
ti.eularly; that Mr. Black suffered" the most excru
ciating agony, and that he made attempts to crow,
lapping dis arms, and making a noise smilar to a
rooster, that those outside the ]louse were per
suaded to believe that it was one, until he was re
lievtd by death.
Sutial to tie New Orlent Crescent.J
HAVANA, October 18, 1859.
Messrs. FAdtora: It is with Infinite satisfaction I
have the pleasure of informing you thatthe Gacela
of the 11th inst. contains a decree whereby cattle,
fowls and eggs are permitted to be imported into
this island for theim period of four months (at least)
longer, under the reduced rate of duties stated in
the decree of 7th April last, whilst tile Dianio de la
DMarlai of the 11th inst. publisbes a paragraph
intended as explanatory of the decree published in
the Gaeela of same date, in which are are given to
understand that cattle, fowls and eggs, will be
allowed to be imported into this island, under the
reduced rates of duties, for all time to come. The
port of Batabano, on the other side of the Island,
is also declared a port of entry for cattle, fowls and
eggs-the object of this latter measure, doubtless,
being to enable Mexico and other South American
countries to compete with the United States in sup
plying this island with beef cattle. To this compe
tition it must be unjust to Cuba to offer any objec
tion, as it will, beyond doubt, tend to reduce the
price of beef in our markets. With the superior
facilities possessed by the United States for the
slpeedy and safe conveyance of cattle to thiaisland,
no doubt canl exist but that by far the larger por
tion of the beef cattle brought to this Island will
come from the United States. By the way, the
Spaniards complain of the bulls in the bull-ring not
possessing sufficient pluck. Could you not send
them a few score of those small, active, straight
horned black bulls I remember to have seen some
years ago in Attakapas parish in your State. If one
of these animals did not " clear the kitchen " in
the bull ring, then I am mightily mistaken.
By a royal order published in the Gaeela of the
14th instant, vessels bringing coals hereafter to
this island are to enjoy tile immunities and privi
leges they have hitherto possessed.
Twenty-one `" Asiaticos free colonists" escaped
on the 9th instant from the plantation called La
Maravilla, near Matsnzas. but were: captured and
taken back the same day, and on the following
one they killed the proprietor of tihe estate, Don
Augustin Valera, witlh their spades and other agri
tultural instruments. There is one single trait in
the character of these Chinese-they never will
conviet one of their number of having committed
tin ofence, but when asked who did it, the reply
invariably is, " We all did it."
The United States steamer Crusader, Lieutenant
Commander Maffit, arrived here from Philadelphia
the evening of the 15th instant. She merely put in
to regulate her chronometers, and sailed next day
ol a cruise, I guess, from a conversation I had
with Lieutenant Maffit, to look after Walker's
The 10th instant was Isabel Segundo's Saint's
day. The usual royal salutes were fired from the
fortifications and Spanish men-of-war in the har
bor, the church bells pealed their merriestthrough
the day, and a full military performed on the Plaza
die Armes at noon,whilst a grand bcesanano (levee)
was iheld at the palace. The vicinity of the Plaza
was thronged with brilliant equipages, the servants
wearing their gala attire, whilst on the plaza were
crowds of well dressed people and military officers
in their gorgeous uniforms, resembling London
flunkies, yet seldom have I seen the plaza exhibit
a more brilliant appearance.
The British mail steamer Teviot arrived 10th in
stant from Vera Cruz, bringing dates from-the city
of Mexico to 30th nit., and from Vera Cruz to 5th
Mr. Otway, late British Minister to Mexico; ar
rived in the Teviot from Vera Cruz. The State
barge was sent to convey him ashore; he was re
ceived with due impressment and proceeded next
day in the Teviot to St. Thomas, on his way to
A joint stock company has been organized at St.
Jago de Cuba, to establish a steamship to run be
tween New York, Nueritas and St. Jago. The
shares are divided into three equal portions, one
portion to each of the three cities. Those shares
apportioned to St. Jago and Nuevitas were all, at
once, subscribed for.
A person named Francesco Aleman, on the 10th
inst., at San Antonio de los Basios, attempted to
enter a railway car when the train was in motion.
He slipped, fell beneath the car, was run over and
By the Spanish steamshlip Cuba, which arrived
the 11th inst., we (Diario de la Marina) have the
following from St. Domingo : "A pronunciamiento
had been made at Azua on the 7th. against the
tiovernment, which terminated without bloodshed
on the 13th. The chiefs of the pronunciamiento
were Mathias Devargas and Rudesindo Ramirez,
both partisans of Balz. The former had made his
escape. Geffard's Government had appointed
M. Pierre Faobert to a diplomatic mission to the
Holy States, to endeavor to obtain a new Constitu
tion for tihe Church."
The Cuba also brought intelligence from Vene
zuela to the 21st,ult. I am again indebted to the
iarioo de l lariina for the following : "The in
telligence is favorable. At Tuez and Barlevento
the revolutionary factions had been put down.
"The port of Nutria had been taken by Brito's
Division. Victoria andotherplaces were under the
true Government. Doctor PedroGual,thle President
of tie Republic, had written a letter to Don Manuel
Felipe Toral, the Vice-President, resigning his offien
and requesting the latter to assume its functions. On
the 13th M. Leon Leviand, French Charge des Af
faires, received his passports, having shlown him
self a partisan of Monagas."
Looking over the recent royal order respecting
municipal elections in this Island, a few days ago,
to see if I had omitted to send you anything impor
tant contained in it, my attention was attracted to
a sentence which states " that only those of purely
white blood shall be entitled to be electors. This
excited my surprise, because so few Spaniards can
in reality boast of being psrely wchile. The Moors
held possession of Spain for four hundred years,
and during the wars with them Spain was more
than once compelled to recruit her armies with
negroes from Africa, all of whom were absorbed
with and by the masse'. Even Isabel Segunda, who
is no doubt proud of her descent from the Medicis,
should remember that the founder of that race, the
great ifedici, was a regular "nigger," with thick
lips, flat nose and curly wool! Indeed, I believe in
Spain to this very day, as much respect is paid to
the black as to the white man, but here in Cuba, of
course it is far different.
A most interesting ceremony took place at the
Cathedral of this city on the 12th instant, in the
blessing of the new flag of the regiment'of rifle
men of Isabel Ida. The Captain General, General
Brochera, and many other military notabilities
were present on the occasion. The Right Rev. the
Bishop officiated.
There was a great deal of ceremonial observed
which I need not detail. A grand high mass was
celebrated and an eloquent and suitable sermon
preached, after which the regiment was marched
to the " Cortina de Valvesz." where it saluted its
new flag with a volley of musketry, then, pre
ceded by its fine band playing a lively march,
marched down to the place of embarkation in
front of the Captain of the Port's office, and with
the utmost precision embarked on board launches
which awaited the regiment. The sails were
speedily hoisted, and I have rarely seen a prettier
sight than those large boats, filled with ladies,
crossing tile harbor to the Cabulnas fortifications,
where the offieers of the regiment gave a grand
military fiesta (feast) to invited guests in the

Mesrsa. Alitors : During tile whole of last week
all the offerings of clayed sugars were eagerly
taken upon the basis of eight reals per arrobe for
I). S. No. 12. The market this week exhibits, as
yet, an equally firm aspect, although from the last
received intelligence from Europe and the North

active as it is at this time.
Stocks here and at Matanzas are estimated at
about 160,000 boxes-40,000 boxes larger than they

To the Citizens of the Second Congresslonal
Early in July last I was announced as a candi
date for Congress. My reasons for now withdraw
ing shall be succinctly given.
At the time my name was first announced there
was no candidate in the field excepting the Hon.
Miles Taylor, the Democratic nominee of the Thi
bodaux Convention. That Conventionhadpassed
resolutions endorsing the administration of Mr.
Buchanan. Believing, as I did then, and as I do
now, that Mr. Buchanan has prostituted his office
to partisan purposes-made his Cabinet a Party
Central-Committee (of which he is chairman ex
fficeio)-ahbused the sacred trust given him by a mi
nority of the people, and reduced his political prin
ciples to two particulars, to-wit: the spoils of office,
and negro-slavery agitation-I as an old Whig, as
an American, as a conservative man, born, bred
and educated in the South, was opposed to the elec
tion of the standard-hearer of the Thibodaux reso
Since my name was announced, that of Lawrence
D. Nicholls, Esq., of Donaldsonville, has been also
announced. He is a lawyer, a gentleman, and one
in whose political views I heartily concur. It is a
matter of but little importance which of us two
shall be elected, but it is a matter of very great im
portance that our principles shall triumph. I there
fore cheerfully withdraw, that all the strength of
the opposition party may be united upon Mr.
While my name has been before the people, I
have done no electioneering with individualvoters,
bnt I have had the encouragement and the strong
est assurances of support from many whose judg
ment I respect and whose approval I value.
1 am satisfied that there is in the public mind a
deep and uncompromising feelingof hostilityto tile
abuses of the present Administration, and I shall
rejoice in the triumph of Mr. Nicholls in November
next, as an expression of that feeling. Whatever
may be Mr. Taylor's record in the late Congress,
he stands before the people to-day as an Adminis
tration man.
If those who had intended to give me their sup
port will, in the exercise of their judgment, as po
litical free-thinkers, give their party support to Mr.
Nicholls, it will afford me much gratification. I
have already written ay friends in the country
parishes. RIrrus WAPLEm.

News says:
A letter from our agent, dated Weatherford, 4th

their depredations, murdering helpless families,
etc., in Comanche and other frontier counties, and
tlhat some twenty-five families had been forced to

the letter of hmtuction from tMh roehlep,dr

Saturday night at request of Mr. Eddy, fest oilier.
He told witnesb aebot the Custom o nse iBa r es
being on board, and seemed to be uneasynsidier
cited, being unosed to sunh visitations, ndebeing a
young man; he simply Ihoght it hla doty- to a-

ard notmng aoot the ams on board. Witness
testifed as to the usueal' method of enterdng and
clearing vessels at the Cbistom-House. Adplita
tions forpassage re generally made at the.ofil.
of the agents. None of the defendants ever- a
plied for passage on the P iladelphia. if they lad,
they would not have been received.
Ai. els scorn,-i telegraph operator at
Southwest Pass, and the only operator there.. Was
at lis house when the Pnther arrived; It was
about 9 oclohck at night; is not positive as tothe
day of the-week. Witness did not go on boe the
Panther; had no talk with any of the men. One
gentlemar whom he afterward learned we-. M.
Fayssouxi called at his house to get a message tel
egraphed. It was telegrapied. Witness can't ra
member what the message-was, or who it wasnod
dressed to. M.ch telegraphing is done theme, d
witness is not in the habit of remembering the
messages sent. It ls not miunal to send messages
late at night. Fayssoa dicn siderable telegraph
ing whilst there. Believe he did receive a reply to
his first message. Witness cannot remember any
part of themessagestelegraphed, except tlhewords
"and," "the,!' "of,": etc., which witness cannot
now connect, having forgotten the intermediate
word,. ues not think lthet any boat or vessel was
mentioned is the it-st dispatch. One of the dis
patches was cdlressed to Mr. McKay. Could not
exactly remember what the dispatch was.
Mr. McKay here asked witness If he did not re
member that the dispatch sent to him consisted of
these wonrds "What right has Hatch to arrest
Witness did remember thatthe dispatch was to
that effect. No-written copy or record of the
first dispatch sent was preserved; some of the dis
pantch. witness believes were sent from written
copies. Of the dispatches received whilst the
party was thre, mos were addressed to witness,
and witness voluntarily showed the contents of
them to Fayssoux. Witness does remember the
contents of the messages sent and received by and
for himself. The men were there with their pro
visions and water short; witness supplied them
with water and was concerned about them; he
telegraphed to the towboat agents to come and
take the men away; an answer was received that
the towboats Panther and James L. Day would
give the men a ree passage from that oint ; after
that another message came, stating that the tow.
boats did'nt dare to take the men away; and there
the men staid till they were taken away by the
Witness explained at length the rules of. tele
graph oicers; it s usual to preserve the copies
of the dispatches sent; butwbhen the original copy
is wanted back by the person sending the message,
the operator has the privilege of returning it, If he
sees proper. This courtesy witness extended to
Fayssoux several times, when e had his messages
prepared in writing. The crowd was a rather large
one to come down on a fishing frolie. There might
have been 80 or 100; some thought there were
more. Witness has seen similar crowds downat
the Pass before; particularly about election times.
[Great laughter in court.] Witness says the matter
imay make people laugh, buit is nevertheless a
fact. Witness did not mingle with the crowd or
ask any ofthem any questions. Had considerable
conversation with : ayssoux; just suchtalk as any
menwosldhave, fallingin casually-tegether. Asked
his no questions, and he gave no informatton.
Had no introduction to Fayssoux, there was no
kind of introduction betweenthem. Witness heard
tie men say they were there on a fishing frolic, or
somethlig of the sort; witness thought it a rather
large crowd to conie there to fish, and took what
he heard as a joke.
Mr. Miller asked witness, if, taking what he had
.eard as a joke, his curiosity was not enough ex
cited for him to inquire into the meaning of the
Witness answered that his curiosity was not
strong enough to prompt him to ask any questions.
The men were generally quiet and well-behaved.
They did not seem to be under anybody's control;
they were scattered all about, went everywhere,
and in this way were something of an annoyance
to witness. When tie cotter arrived, the men
made conssiderable fun of her. As she anchored
off the wharf, and run her cannon out, as if she
was going to bombard the place, tihe men responded
to it by runnming up a flag. This was a black flag,
a piece of an old sinal; but being rather a dis
credit to the station, that flag was taken down and
another, a sort of signal, sent up in its place. Wit
ness saw a man on the wharf, that was called Col.
Anderson; he sent no dispstches. Saw Capt.
Maulry, also; he sent a dispatch; this was to a
gentleman in Mobile, and just as tihe party were
leaving the Paiss.
Mr. McKay asked if tihe dispatch was not sent to
is certain gentleman, whom he named. Witness
could not remember the contents of that dispatch,
sr any of tihe dispatches sent by Fayssoux, except
the one Mr. McKay hlad reminded him of. To
questions by Mr. Lusher, tihe witness stated that the
reason he looked upon it as a joke when he heard
the men say they were there on a fishing frolic,
was because it was unousual for such a crowd to
come there for such a purpose; but they did fish
plentifully from the wharf opposite the telegraph
oice; there are always plenty of fish around
there; witness was himnself in the habit of fishing
for tie supply of himself and family.
When Mr. Wells was dismissed, Mr. Miller stated
that the Government Would there rest its case.
Mr. McKay stated that the defense declined of
fering any testimony.
Counsel on both sides agreeing to submnit the
case without argument, Mr. LushLer annoaneed that
he would deliver his decision on Monday, and ad
journed the Court.
