ers of produce, and with produce likewlse. On
the great levee and landings it was also lively and
active. Strangers and visitors now in our city who
have never witnessed the great levee of New Or
leans, with the seven miles front of shipping,
steamboats and flatboats, will do well to visit it
doring the fine weather. It will speak and talk for
The arrival of the Europa at Halifax from Liver
pool, with dates to the 11th inst., was announced
about noon yesterday. The commercial advices
were regarded as favorable. The sales of cotton
for the week ending the 10th instant, were 87,000
bales, of which speculators took 63,000 bales.
The most Important talk yesterday on Carondelet
street was the advance infreights. The talk was,
that ~d. had been refused for cotton to Liverpool,
and 11-16d. asked. Of course, this advance was
taken into consideration by operators in the staple.
Sterling exchange closed weaker than at the open
ing. There were many remarks on the crop figures.
Wagers are running high on 4,400,000 to 4,500,000
bales. The receipts at this port proper up to last
evening foot up the extraordinary quantity of
1,710,085 bales --a very powerful development
towards 2,050,000 bales.
There was, however, talk of a very unpleasant
character. The telegraph on Wednesday brought
advices of a steamer being ashore on the coast of
Nova Scotia. This proves to be the screw-steamer
Hungarian, of the Montreal Ocean Company. This
melancholy disaster has been attended with, it is
feared, great loss of life as well as property. The
Hungarian was commanded last summer by Capt.
T. Jones. Some of our merchants, with their
families, made the passago to Europe in her last
summer. She is represented to have been a very
superior vessel, with (at that time) able and com
petent officers, a first-ratp crew, and in all respects
one of the best provided and ably commanded
steamers afloat. This line has been very unforta
nate. This is the second steamer lost this season,
and the third since the inauguration of this line, the
first having been lost in the river St. Lawrence.
There is something singular in these losses; possi
bly ambition and pride for short passages en
courages too-close running towards the land. This
brings up the talk that a line of steamers running
direct from Liverpool to New Orleans would never
have to encounter the severe storms and gales
which are component parts of a passage to North
ern cities for over six months in the year. Since
the introduction of steamships to the New Orleans
trade (thirteen years ago) there has only been one
wrecked or lost on the Southern coast-that was
the Crescent City near the Bahama banks. The
Clack Warrior was wrecked going into New York.
We have frequently called attention to the fact
that our market for the planter of the South and
the farmer of the West is the best, the most certain
and sure, taking precedence of all others on this
continnt. As regards the great staple, being the
largest receiving market, it exercises a controlling
influence now over the cotton marts of the world.
Hlere, from the large stocks and receipts, a better
assortment is always to be found, and here the
chief and prominent buyers for all markets congre
gate every season, and will increase each succeed
ing year.
The following extract, from a Columbus, Ga.,
paler of the 14th inst., confirms the high stand our
market now holds :

What is now required to further and extend ouir
trade with the Chattahoochie river and Georgia is
an additional steam propeller to run to Apalarhi
cola, and a reduction in the rate of insurance at
least 331 pet. This reduction can be very well
conceded by our underwriters. The insurance
offices can do much towards augmenting the trade
of our city.
There was somethcing said about the mails yester
day, but as they failed to arrive, notwithstanding
the passage of the appropriation bill, it is not of
much use to talk of them. There is some inquiry
to ascertain the name of the member of Congress

service and postal arrangements as now conducted,
and throw the carrying of letters open to private

As has been the case for some time past, there is
nothing of interest to report from the capital of
Cuba. The population of the city were almost en
tirely taken up with the amusements'incidental to
the carnival season. On Sunday, the 19tll, notwith
standing the dampness of the weather, the turnout
on the Pasco was numerous and brilliant, affording
much amusement to alarge number of visitors from
the United States.

Among our fellow menasros the ocean it is con
sidered a great honor and dignity for some, distin
galshed magnate to smite with his sword, officially
and complimentarily, the shoulder of a worthy sub
ject, andi Mi him "rise up Sir" John Something, a
qualified and accredited member of the order of
Knighthood. It was supposed that customs of
this description appertained exclusively to nations
among which the distinctions of nobility are in
vogue and were not countenanced in lands where
republican Institutions maintain. But this is an
error, for we find that the people of the United
States are yielding to a snobbish desire for titled
honors, and have instituted an order of distinction
peculiarly American, but resembling in some re
spects the conferring of Knighthood as practised
by European nations.
It may be entitled " The Order of St. Charles,
the Martyr," and is much sought after by eminent
politicians of the Northern part of the country. It
was instituted two or three years ago-the first
honored recipient of its gains and dignities being
Sir Charles Sumner, of Massachusetts, whose mem
ory will be blessed in that land forever. The
formula of conferring the order is for a distin
guished Southern gentleman, holding the high of
fice of Congressman, to lay a cane upon the appli
cant's back, and thereafter to say to him, in a
dignified manner, " Rise up, Sir John Sometiding
if you can-a worthy member of the Order of St.
CharJes, the Martyr."
There is no wonder that this order is highly
prized and sought for, for its gains and honors.
are immense. No sooner is it received than the
newly qualified Knight of the Cane finds himself
in the front rank of valued and eminent citizens
thoughout the North, the object of adoration
among the women, of unbounded popularity
among the men; his journeys through the coun
try are continued ovations, and he progresses like
a prince through a continued series of brilliant re
ceptions. And all is conferred by the' magic
touch of a Southern gentleman's cane! Why, the
stroke of knightly and knighting sword is the emp
tiest of honors compared with this! We firmly
believe that ere long the Northern Congressmen
will be running after Southerners and begging to
be caned, as Mark Meddle, in " London Assurance,"
begs to be kicked.
The latest qualified member of the order is Sir
John Hickman, of Pennsylvania, made great by a
touch of the walking switch of Cal. Edmondson, of
Virginia. His career of honor has already com
menced in earnest, and will rival that of Sir Charles
Sumner. Shortly after the glorious and precious
application of the wand of immortal renown, he
started on a tour in Pennsylvania to reap the re
sults, and unless he has a well-balanced intellect
his head must be turned-he must be drunk with
his own renown ere this. Committees waited on
him as he passed along in state, and at his town of
Westchester, Pennsylvania, an immense crowd was
in readiness to receive its honored son, and he was
addressed in a splendidly and ornately eulogistic
oration. Sir John replied, as the Black Republican
papers of that ilk report it, " in a brief but elo
quent speech," and then received the congratula
tions of his friends and the multitude on the suc
cessful manner in which he had been caned, and
the quiet and impassive style in which he com
ported himself during that ceremony. The as
semblage was wild with enthusiasm, and several
persons were roughly used in the eagerness of the
crowd to shake hands with and personally con
gratulate its admired object.
Who is the next applicant for the Order? Don't
be bashful, gentlemen. There are canes enough
for all.
TUESDniY' STORM.-The severe storm of wind
and rain which pasoed over this city on Tuesday
was felt pretty sharply in Mobile, but no consider
able damage was done.
A STOssE roo Sr. HIELsA.-G. W. Kimball, U.
S. Consul at St. Helena, has succeeded in obtain
ing for the Washington Monument one of the large
stones forming the grave of Napoleon I., on that
island. The French Emperor, Louis Napoleon,
has consented to its removal for that purpose, and
it was shipped aboard the U. S. steamer Mystic,
bound to the coast of Africa, whence it will be
sent to the United States in the storeship Relief.

proved conclusively that her death was caused by
swallowing arsenic, administered probably by her
own hand.
RlrsmlscAs ParsvY.-The following facts are
their own best commentary. The Republican
State Treasurer of Maine stole $100,000 of the
people's money, and applied $31,000 of it to brib
ery in the elections, by that means electing Daniel
E. Somes and Ezra B. French, a couple of " pure
Republicans," to Congress by small majorities
from the first and third districts of Maine. Bribery
and corruption alone elected these men, and brib
ery with stolen money, too. The Republican State
Treasurer of Michigan is another plunderer of the
people's money to the tune of $110,198 75. In
Massachusetts the Republican Liquor agent is
proved to be a cheat, and he, too, has "extended"
to the tune of $300,000! And one of the Repub
lican State Senators in the same State-Frye, of
Worcester-has just been compelled to resign his
seat by the discovery of forgeries amounting to

Thn: WEATcHE yesterday was beautiful, ocularly,
hnasally and pedally; but towards evening it be
trayed an attack of frigidity, and at night was cu
taneously chilly and disagrecable. Though the
nocturnal empyrcamwas as dark and bright and
clear as the face of an offended Amazon, and each
particular sta as brglst a a dagger's ]point, tie
Aowxls( flavos of the atmiosphere was such as to
render us mortals callous to celestial beanty, and
to drive all to the precincts of genial potations,and
the luxurious allurements of glowing lire-places
and the blanketed beds at home. Total: the
weather was beautiful, but chilly at night.
Wm. H. C. King was yesterday put upon his trial
in the First District Court for manslaughter. On
Sunday, the 3d of July last, at the monthly meet
ing of the Typographical Union, at Louisiana
Hose House, corner of Perdido and Carondolet
streets, King had a rencounter with Arthur McGill,
which resulted in King giving ktcGill a stab, from
which he died, about a month afterwards at Charity
Hospital. King was (ansod is) foreman of the Cres
cent printing department, and McGill had been
working with him as his assistant foreman.
The prosecution yesterday was conducted by
Attorney General Semmes and District Attorney
Bradford, and the defence by Win. H. Hunt, Esq.
The court-room was filled with printers during the
trial, and nearly the whole of the Crescent gifice
was present.
We do not deem it necessary to give the testi
mony, in full. We condense it, giving the sub
stance of each witness' testimony. Witnesses for
the State were introduced as follows:
Dr. Hart, City Physician: Examined McGill's
body at Charity Hospital, on the 8th of August.
Death had resulted from a punctured wound in the
back, penetrating the spinal column, between the
sixth and seventh vertebrae, and severing two
thirds of the spinal marrow.
Dr. Smyth, Assistant House Surgeon at Charity
Hospital: Assisted in attending to McGill at the
hospital. The fatal wound was in the back, going
inward and downward. When brought to the
hospital, deceased was paralysed in his lower
limbs. He died of exhaustion, resulting from the
wound. The knife could not have reached the
spinal cord by a straight blow; it must have been
necessary for the blade to bend in order to reach
the cord.
W. W. Brisbin: Was at the meeting of the
Typographical Union in the hall of Louisiana
IHose House on Sunday, the 3d of July. There
was a discussion relative to something in the
Cresscet office. lcGill took no part in the discns
sion; he had been on a spree for several days, and
was very much intoxicated that morning. After
the matter under discussion had been disposed of,
King asked leave of the President to retire; and
Icave being given, he left. McGill went oat imme
diately after King, and witness went out after Mo
Gill. On reahing the gallery outside witnes heard
lod words ; saw King and McGill at the foot of the
stairs, face to face. Saw King draw aknafe, make
a cut at McGil, amnd then run through the hose
house, McGill pursuing him. Running down stairs
witness lost sight of them for a time; as he entered
the back door a hose carriage intercepted his view,
but on getting round the carriage saw the two men
together inside the house, near the front door on
Carondelet street. Think they had hold of each
other. Saw King reach over McGill's shoulder
with his knife andstab him in the back.
lHe immediatelyfell, the knife sticking in his back,
and King still holding to the knife. Witness went
up and took King by the wrist; he then let go the
knife and retreated. As MtGtll lay on the floor,
resting on his elbow, witness took hold of the
knife and pulled itfost. It was neither very hard
nor very easy to pull out. Witness expected that
King and MeGill would have some words, for in
the morning McGill told witness he intended to
have an understanding with King.
Did not think they wotld have any serious
difficulty. Did not go ont after them because he
expected a dilficulty; went out because it was late
in the day and after his dinner hour. Witness took
no part in the discussion, because he was an hon
orary member and not entitled to take part in the
proceedings. Did not see McGill make any demson
stration toward King in the yard; didnot hear
what they said; there was as alarm of fire at the
time, and much noise around the building.
Others followed witness down stairs: did not'see
any one on the stairs as he went down. Saw no
weapon in McGill's hands. King did not resist
when witness took him by the wrist; he let go and
ran down Perdido street. As McOill lay on the
floor, he exclaimed that he regretted dying by the
hands of such a son of a b-h. A small pocket
knife, which looked as if it had been used for cut
ting tobacco, and which a man might conceal in
his closed hand, was afterward handedto witness,
with the information that McGill had dropped it
whilst pursunlg King through the boss house, This
knife witness produced before the Recorder. [Fhe
knife was inquired for, but the Becorder had not
sent it down j
This witness was crosse.questioned at great length
by counsel fur defense, judge, and jurors, un to the
precise attitude and manner of King and McGIl
when be first saw them at the foot of the stairs,
and when he next saw themse in the hqse hpase,
near the front door, ad aus to other matters con

the difficulty, McGill had been on a spree. But a
few days previous to the occurrence, witness ad.
vanced 'noney to McGill, at King's request, he
being responsible for the loan. Witness was about
to name other intances of King's friendship for
McGill, but his further testimony onthin pln was
ruled out, as not relevant or necessary. ling
questioned as to King's character for peaeefulnasu,
witness stated that he never heard of his being in
