Yesterday, atmospherically, opened dark and
cloudy, with indications of a long gray north
easter. Towards meridian the sun appeared, and
the day closed like many autumnal days of the
South, clear and bacing. The weather also turned
very favorable for our sugar planters. The rain of
Thursday was the irst of any importance which
has fallen since the great storm of the 2d October.
The gatherings on the flags were numerous, and
good feeling prevailed in all circles.
The talk is that there are many persons repre
senting Black Republican houses in New York
now arriving daily in our midst, with the intent of
soliciting business in the way of consignments to
their friends in New York and Boston. These gen
try do not keep any regular office. They may have
a room for lodging purposes by the month; possi
bly, to create an impression of greatness, they may
dine daily at the St. Charles or City Hotel. They
may open an account with one of our banks, to
which they may refer, butwe think the bank would
rather be excused in most cases from reference.
Then, again, many of these come to-day and go-to
morrow merchants (they assume to be merchants)
represent the most rabid Black Republican ship
owners, such as MHoses H. Grinnell, Charles H.
Marshall & Co. and Whitlock, of New York. Some
contribute to our State and city revenues, when
called on. We have yet to learn that any of them
voluntarily call on our City Treasurer or the col
lectors of taxes on behalf of the State. The talk
is, among our old resident tax-payers, that they do
not desire to see so many of these non-tax-paying
folks about, dealing in this, that and the other.
The further talk was of the activity in the great
staple. The sales yesterday and the day previous
amounted to twenty-five thousand bales. If buy
ersa had taken the precaution to have ordered some
few thousands of gold, they would have saved
largely in exchange. Asit would be an innovation
on the customs of former years to import gold to
purchase cotton, it is not likely that this season
will be an exception. The importing of corn fall
ing on buyers and dealers in exchange, there was
some talk of large sums having left New York
yesterday for this place via the Jackson Railroad,
which we may have occasion to acknowledge the
receipt of about next Tuesday, though some is ex
pected to arrive on Sunday.
It was active on the grand Levee yesterday. In
and about the sugar depot we noticed good stocks
of sugar and molasses. The gimlet rangers ap
peared to be in bettdr humor than usual. The
favorable change in tie weather was encouraging.
exhilarating in some respects. At thecotton land
ing, tile uouao Friday's bustle and business were
observable. At the uppen r steamboat landing
the valuel argosic, from thle great West were dis
charging their great annd varied cargoes. (On Pnly
dras, New Len;' and Tchouplitoulas street*, the
den!er, and traders in Western products were
lively, making sale.t of course, from hour to hlnur
They were all prcei.red for secession and a South
ern Confederacy, knowing that bacon, flour and
pork cannot be seceded from, and convinced that
good supplies will come to thli. great cash market,
whether Louisiana remains in the Union or goes
out of the Union.
Tihe receipts of cotton for this week are up to
those of last week, and with the good weather for
the last four weeks, it is confidently believed we
shall have at least heavy receipts for the entire
month--2.0,000 bales for this month will be deem
ed heavy receipts, perhaps not extraordinarily
heavy, but sufficient to keep the wheels of com
merce moving. The receipts for the week ending
last evening at 6 o'clock foot up as follows:

There have been very light transactions in the
weed this week. The receipts are light, but the
local consumption shows no falling off. It is talked
of that the French Government's contract will be
given.out within sixty days. In the meantime, tihe
frost accounts are regarded with some interest.
iMr. Jack Frost has a great many deeds of omission
and comlmi.nion to answer for.
We have heard of a sale of long staple cotton,
which was erised in Mississippi, at the very high

The usual weekly circular of coffee from Col.
Lonsdale, Son & Co., will be found in the usual
column. There is a great falling off in the receipts
this season from last season. The accounts for.
warded to London from Rio direct represent the
crop this season as large. These advices come in
conflict with advices received here. We shall pro
bably know more about it before the close of the
month of Mailrch. In the meantime, those that
want Prime Rio coffee will have to pay the very
prime figures of 15 cts, 70 lb wholesale.
The great Northern mail failed again yesterday
from beyond the Grand Junction. This Junction is
becoming well noted in mall and commercial cir
eles. It is useless more than to remark that the
English mails by the Europa up to the ithi have
not come to hiand, and that dates of Monday last
were due p.aterday fromn New York.
DIs.OVE.a.ns or Mihleei--The planters in one sec
tion of South Carolina are having a "marl feve,'
as it is termad--hunting for marl beds, which have
been found ito many places. A correspondeat of
the Charleston Courier says that the rage for marl
beds has beesme epidemic. The marl is in the
form generallytk nown as green sand and white
ahell. Lands in the section have risen enormously
in price. One geotlemano who two years ago paid
one dollar per .ere for a plantatlion, has lately
keen offered twenty. The marl is hlighly prized as
a fertilizer.
ORgiNsE Looseese .r OTOniER.--TLhe list of the

WORTHY OF IxITArTIOr.-We think it but justice
to a good officer for us to notice the extreme
ly neatness and business.like regularity with which
everything is done in the Clerk's office of the Re
corder's Court of the Third District. The most
in orderly first class commission house cannot excel
the office we speak of, and we know of no public
officer whose general obliging conduct more en
a. titles him to the respect and friendship of all who
k. do business with him, than does Mr. A. Larose.
day afternoon a seller of medals and cravates on
R- Royal street, near the Post-office, offered a Lincoln
k- medal for sale, and, in answer to remarks said that
he had "as lief sell Lincoln medals as any other,"
etc. An immediate demonstration was the conse
a quence. Medal seller roughly treated-merchan
dise capsized-talk about hemp and lamp-post
rush at medal seller-medal seller evacuates.
Medal seller very sound as to the final clause.
Better go to a more congenial clime, and escape
being sent to one even less comfortable.
P. S. Since writing the above we have ob
tained fuller particulars, and come more truly at
the merits of the case. The Lincoln medal was in
3 a large lot of medals of all the other Presidential
candidates, which were the joint property of a
youth native to this city named Stanb, aged about
i 17 years, who is a clerk in Mr. Goldthwaite's book
in store, and of another boy also born here who at- I
tends the cravat, glove and fancy merchandise
stall of Mr. Reibeck, an Austrian, in front of Mr.
. Goldthwaite's store. (Mr. G. is a well-known
y native citizen, a man of means and a slaveholder.)
The young gentlemenin question have been spec-s.
a. lating in medals on their own account during the
campaign, and purchased their supplies of this
. political trinket by the quantity from a large house
in this city. They were not aware that a stray
image of Lincoln had got among their stock. It
, was discovered accidentally by a man who .was
looking over them. It led to an excitement, a
smashingof the show-case, and an assaultonyoung
d Staub, in which he was severely beaten, being pur
. sued some distance before being caught.
n During the excitement, Mr. Reibeck, the owner
r- of the stall but not of the medals, came up, and
some one exclaiming that he was the owner of the
offensive property, a rush was made at him. He I
fled into Mr. Goldthwaite's store, and the doors
were closed to keep off the crowd, who soon got
w ladders to storm the store over the rear partition
u from the Suzrac saloon washroom. The doors were
e ropened, and Reibeck, hearing the threats of rope
,d and lamp post, broke away and ran down Royal
r street, pursued by a crowd of two or three hun
dred; turning down into Exchange Alley, he ran
into Chartres street, and being hard pressed, took b
g refuge in the cake shop on the corner of Conti and 1
n Chartres streets. Here a multitude assembled, and t
Re eibeck's fortunes assumed a sqoally appearance.
As they were about seizing him special officer
Boullosa came along, arrested him and called on
e- citizens to aid him in the safe-keeping of the pris
n- oner. He received assistance, and Reibeck was
o- safely conducted to the Second District lock-up,
followed by the crowd. Young Staub, having had
his wounds dressed, appeared and avowed his
so ownership of the medals and explained the posses
id sion of the Lincoln medal as above-that he did
se not know it was in the lot-and the crowd dis
se persed. The merchants who imported them from
Is the North are to be questioned, we understand.
schoolmaster from New England, who has been
teaching school in Georgia, imported himself into
m New Orleans and put up at the St. Charles Hotel
on the lst inst. His name is S. M. Whitney, and
g after staying awhile he changedhis quarters to the
y Merchants' Hotel, where he exercised his talents in
tamperingwith a negro girl, slave. He endeavored,
nt it seems, to seduce this dusky damsel into infidelity
to her mistress by picturing the delights of free
dom and assuring her that she would receive a
$100 in Boston if she could get away and escape to
that modern Athens. The unsophisticated girl
asked her mistress, who is the wife of the clerk of
the hotel, what sort of a place Boston was, and I
made other inquiries which excited suspicion. She
was questioned and what was elicited was deemed
sufficient to warrant the apprehension of Whitney.
tHe was apprehended by Messrs. Boylan and Izard,
and locked up to await an examination.
DENhcs MURPHY DEAD.-Yesterday afternoon, at
2. o'clock., Dennis Mturphy diedat-the Charity Hos

H IE "TOOK" CoAT.-Mr. Benjamin Willow, im
y pelled by the coercive severity of this November
weather, yesterday morning walked off with a
warm coat pertaining to a mercantile establishment

I not to be warm in that way, and consequently the
police collared him, coat and all.
BADLY BEATN.--There was a general and fero
It cious mass on board the warlike steamer Mars
yesterday, and when it was over an unknown man

BanTiL.--Mike Cummings was arrested on Ba
ronne street at 9 o'clock last evening for attempt
ing to kill his wife, Mrs. Fanny Cummings, with a
slung-shot. He was arrested before he did any
damage, but at the time was bent upon it with fero
cious intent, savagely pursuing the woman.
PosT HMOnTE EXAMSTIONr.--At 9 o'clock this
morning a post mortem examination of the body of
Dennis Murphy, who lingered so long with a pistol
shot wound in the head, inflicted by officer Price,
will be had. Much interest in this case is felt
among the medical faculty as well as the general

was yesterday arrested for stealing billiard-balls,
it being charged thathehad purloined twenty-nine
billiard-balls from Mr. Pierre Chifaud, turner, Or

t coming to his residence, which was connected with
the manufacturing establishment which sustained

less of the obligation, he employed his opportuni
ties to " pocket" the billlard-balls turned by his
benefactor. These balls he sold to Armand Landu

was made against him by officer Boullosa, and the

ot 5 and 8 o'clock P. M., in a house on St. Anthony
street, between Urquhart and Gired streets, com
mit a rape upon the person of Della Elizabeth
King, affidavit's daughter, a child aged 11 years
and 6 months, all against the peace and dignity of
the State. King, accompanied bythe police, went

this grave offence, and pointed out one Michael

leg he was arraigned and held to bail for further
examination, as it turned out upon an examination
of the girl, that only an attempt had been made.
The examination of physicians showed that an
attempt had been made, but not consummated.
MALIGNAT "ASSAULT.-M. D. Conway was ar
rested last night charged by H. Leopold, the well
known bill poster, with an assault with intent to
kill. It is alleged that Conway followed Leopold
as he went into an alley on Baronne street, at half
past nine o'clock, and struck him on the head with
a brick. That the blow was severe, is attested by
complainant's wounded head.

my cab one night he was drunk. How Porter got
into the conversationI don't know, hat he told
Conners to go away, and the latter refusing to go,
Porter struck him; just then, John Henry came
running up, (I don't know where he had been
previous to this) and said something to the wateh
man-Lavigne, I belive his name is-Porter started
after John Henry, and struck him. I remarked at
the time, " John Henry, let him alone, you have
nothing with him;" but Porter struck Henry once
or twice, knocking him in the street.
Porter then came back, and Conners had also
come back. They had some more words there.
Porter struck Conners again, who struck back, and
then ran down the street. We (Porter and I) then
went at the corner of Perdido and Dryades, in a
coffee-house and restaurant. We stayed there some
time, drinking wine. We had been there about
thresequsrters of an hour, and went through the
yard, Porter, sleeping right back of this coffee
house, could go to his room through an alley, with
out going in tho street. I then came back, through
the restaurant, into the street. I left him with his
woman, in his room. I found James Conners stand:
Inog on the sidewalk, and a cab iu the street. Con
ners made some remark to me, which I don't recol
lect exactly. I told him, " Yon can play that game
on me, as you did on Porter; take your hand out
of your pocket." I said so because when he quar
reled with Porter he had a knife on him. Just at
that time Conners was knocked down, I think by
Porter, who had just come around the corner. I
think his woman was with him, but I am not sure.
The watchman, Lavigne, made after Porter, to
arrest him, and, in so doing, put his hand into his
pocket, as if to draw a weapon or something, and
Porter jumped in the street. Whilst I was looking
towards Porter, I saw John Henry and another
person come up. Porter went towards them, and
as he approached them I saw John Henry walk off
a few steps, and then turn round and shoot at
Porter, who drew himself up and groaned. Some
man caught Porter, and I followed John Henry
into Dryades street. I came up to a watchman
and told him, " Arrest this man; he has shot Jim
Porter." The watchman took him in charge, when
Bill Evington came up, and John Henry gave him
up his pistol. As I went back to the corner I was
arrested also, charged by Conners with drawing
a knife on him; and when I got out of the lock-up
the thing was all over.
Cross-examined-I didn't see a knife in the hands
of Conners when Porter struck him. When Porter
stepped off from the watchman, to go towards
Henry, he went sideways. Porter made no other
demonstration to attack Henry more than going
towards him. Porter was too far from me to see
if he had any weapon in his hand. I did not see
Henry's pistol, but saw him raise his hand, and I
saw the smoke and heard the report.
JaT.es O'Connor, sworn-On last Wednesday
night, about I o'clock, or half-past 1, I went with
a young man named Bark to take a drink at the
coffee-house corner of Gravier and Dryades streets.
We found Jim Porter there, who wanted to put us
out. We went out, and Charley Reeves called
me aside and ask me if I was not talking about
him. i told him no, and asked him who i'ad told
him so ; he said, this young man Burk. This con
versation took place outside. As I was talking
with Reeves, Porter struck me and knocked me
down, without any cause or provocation, after
which he ran towards John Henry and knocked him
down. John Henry said, " For God's sake, Porter,
don't kill me, I have no weapons about me."
Porter then told him to leave, and kicked him.
Porter came hack to me with Charley Reeves;
Porter hicked me, and Chartey Reeves pulled out
a pistol to shoot me, and I ran up Gravier street
towards the river. I met a cab and got in it, and
started to go to Poydras market to get coffee. At
the corner of Phillippa and Perdido I met Lavigne
and another watchman, and asked them why they
did not arrest those two men when they were
kicking me and Henry . . .
kicking me and Henry?
As I was talking with the watchman, Charley
Reeves came out of a saloon at the corner. He
took a pistol ount of his breast pocket to put it
behind his back, when the watchman caught hold
of him, and told him he would not do any work
like that here. Porter came up at this time and
struck me a blow over the eye, knocking me into
the street. He thentarned to John Henry, whowas
standing near by, and palling a knife on him said,
"Now, I've got you, John Henry, you -1" and
ran towardshim. Henry got out on the treet. I
then ran to get an officer to arrest Porter; I went
to the police office, where I was told that an affi
davit must be made before an officer could be sent
to make the arrest. Whilst I was there John Henry
and Charley Reeves were brought in by the watch
men. I did not see anything of the shooting, and
did not hear the report of a pistol whilst I was run
ning. I did not go there with Henry, but with the
cabman, Billy McDonald. I had no weapon with
with me. When I got down from the cab to the
watchmen (Lavigne and another), I did not see
Reeves nor Porter there. The only excuse the
watchmen gave me was, that they would arrest me
If I did not look out.
Chas. T. Stewart, sworn---On the night of this
occurrence I came up from Poydras market, going
to bed; it was about 1 o'clock, at the corner of
Dryades and Perdido streets, I met two officers,
Lavigne and another whom I only knew by the
nick-name of D)ngo Joe, and stopped to talk to
them ; in three or four minutes John Henry, whom
I know well by sight, came up with another man;
Lavigne called him aside and had sonme conversan
tion with him, which I did not hear, except that as
they came back, Henry said to him, "1 am fixed
now, but I was not then; " shortly after, a cab
drove up, and Henry said, "Conner, come out
here." Conner catu out of the cab on the side
walk; they got to talking about lighting, or about
t previous fight, but I paid no attention to what
they said; after this, Charley Reeves (whose name
they had netioned) canme out of the corner house,
and said to Conner, "Take your ihands ont of your
pockets-I don't want to hurt you; " they then
had some words about a dollar that had been
thrown into a cab ; directly after, James Porter
came fronm around thie corner of Perdido street
nwith a woman; I was standing near the lamp-poaet;
James Porter struck Conner with his list, knock
ing him towards the cab; Porter then came up to
watchman Lavigne, and showed him his coat where
it was cut, he said by Conner, and wanted him to
arrest Caoner, who, meanwhile, had run onff
Porter had a knife in lis hand at thei tinme; he told
Lavigne, "If you don't arrest that man, you are no
man," or something to that effect; Porter started
to go across tie street, and I told him, "Jim, you
had better go to bed."
He said he was only going across the street for a
few minutes, and he would soon come back and go
to bed. I followed him across the street; Henry
and the other man were standing on the other side
of the street; Porter wasgoing towards them, and
when he got to about five or six steps from where
they stood, some words passed between him and
Henry, which I did not hear ; Henry then drew a
pistol and shot at Porter, wh turneamd rond to me
and said, "Charley, I am shot, and If I die, Henry
has killed me," caunght him in my arms, and he
asked me to take him to the hospital. I placed
him in a caband started for the hospital. Be
naked me to press his wnnd, as he counld not
breathe; I did so, and he spoke to me, asking me

Texas Intellgene.
From the Indianola Courier of the 3d inst. we
extract the following:
Business continues to improve from week to
week as the season advances; our streets are con
stautly thronged with wagons and teams, and all
classes of business men, mechanics and laborers,
are constantly and actively employed. Many pen
pIe seem to regard it as an extraordinary thing
a that we should go on prospering, notwithstanding
the partial failure of the crops, forgetting that m
migration has been steadily on the increase and
new resources are being developed. The varied
products of western Texas make it independent of
any particular crop, and in seasons when there is a
ill ralisation of the hqpea In regard to each, the
surplus, if properly iusbanded, would provide for
years of disaster. The development of the re
sources of Western Texasahas not yet been fairly
started, and when our railroads, now commenced,
are extended through the interior, its unbounded
wealth of prodnetion will be poured into our laps.
With the exception of Wednesday, which was
marked by a cold norther. fair and pleasant
weather has ruled during the week. The tides
however, have been unusually low, and several
vessels have beendetained at the bar below by a
scarcity of water - the steamer Mexico being
unable to cross at the regular time, having had to
turn back. The health of the city is good-no
sickness of any kind prevailing.
Trade continues brisk and active, the receipts of
produce and merchandise large and full. The
streets are crowded with wagons, and the bayou
and the harbor with coastwise shbipping and trad
lug boats-.receiving sand discharging loaends of
freight. The words "dull times" are no longer
heard in the "talk on 'change," and the signs idi
cate that they will be stricken out of our commer
cial vocabulary, or restricted to the sole use of
t never satisfied croakers. The spirit of improve
ment is still operating with satisfactory progress,
and mechanics of every trade have their hands fnll.
SThe Centerville Timeso f the d inst. has the
Sollowing encouraging items:
SFrom all quarters of the county we learn that
the cotton crops are turning out much better than
was anticipated by thle peopie generally. Many of
our planters, we learn, have raised more than they
t can gather.
The cotton crop, though rather shortthroughoui
Kthe State this season, is of very fine quality, and
should command a fair price.
By private advices from B. J. McKenele, Esq., of
Weatherford, says the Dallas Herald, we learn that
an express had arrived at that place on the e 2th
I October, bringing the sad intelligence that twenty
t Indians had killed and scalped a wagoner nearCol.
S hatley's, on the Belknap road. The Indians had
a number of horses, supposed to be stolen. Capt.
- Hamner immediately started in pursuit with a com
1 pany of picked men. It is to be hoped that this
experienced hero of the frontier will meet the sav
ages, and achieve a victory.
a From the San Antonio Texan of the lot instant
we extract the following :
We have seen a sword belt, plate nod buckle
made from silver taken from the trappings of an
Indian killed in battle during the past summer by
our friend Capt. John R. Baylor, on the north
western frontier of Texas. The belt, plate and
buckle are very heavy, and highly finished speci
mens of workmanship. The plate has a Texas
Star, engraved in the center nud-richly chased.
bWe understand they were from the house of the
Messrs. Bell, of this city, which has a wide reputa
