All these things should be promptly provided. no
T'here were six or seveln prisunel's i tile hospital of
at the time of oar visit. Our attention was called at
to the fact that when the prison was transferred te
to the charge of the present sheriff, there was a s
large number of prisoners unaccoun ted for-that ct
is, wllose names were ou the register but who
could iot ife loelt on the plremises, thoug there M
weret no eltriea o the records to shiw when or fo
by what authority they had been discharged. fe
the city workhouse, under the charge of Capt. gi
F. M. Andress, rontained at date of our visit 331 w
prisoners, 2.5 (154 men and R1 women) white, and ot
`G (i6i men and 27 women) colored. In this en
building we found all the inmates actively em- no
ploayd in vrios brancheoof irndustry-carpenters I
and blacksmiths' worki mattress making, sewing, m
etc., and we learned from Capt. Andress that during h
the month of May thile workhouse had been p
more than sell sustaining, having earned enough to tt
pay all etpe sos, inclulieg salaries of ollieials, and
having surplus on tile nlonth's work of about t
$200. The discipline under ilte rule of Captain e
Andress seems to be just whlat is required for such o
a place, and the whole estabhshnlent was in as o
good order as the condition of the buildings, t
which are old and much out of repair, would ad- b

as well as neatness, which are worthy of commen- I'1
At the Boys' oituse of Refuge, under tile super- c
inteadclne ot Mr. C. W. West. .'e round 100 boys, I
all in good health aind apparently chleerful and f
contented. The boys have thie advantage of at
good school, and of instruction in several trades-
otaiioring, shonelakillg, tiusmithlng, etc. The moat i
striking feIture of the institution is its bakery, i
which has for year's past been furnishing bread toI t
the worlkhouse and to several of the asylums; ard I
we were told y thle sunperinteadent, whose
ability and' eticetnicy ill his department I
caunot fail to impress favorably any one
-who has the opportunity of seeing them dis
played, that he believed the Refuge could be made
eatirely self sustaining if it were allowed the privi
lege of selling as much bread as it could make-
not to the cituzens generally, but by takiag tite
contracts for sopplying the Charity itosp tal and
other public institlutiots.
tWe would here add our recommendation to that
ot our predecessors that the Worlkhouse and Boys'
Itouse of lefuge be removed to some distance
bach of the city end we think it very desirable
that the Parishni Ptison, also, should be removed
out of towna at as early a day as practicable. WVe
believe that tie sites now occupied by these insti
tutions could be sold for money enough to pay for
sufficient ground at a distance of two or three
miles feom the city, and to do a great deal towards
the erection of new and more sueitable buildings.
At the Girls' louse of Itelago, under the care of
ers. Stokbes, are thirty-two girlsn some of them
very young. There is a good school in the
house. The girls are taught to read and to attend
to household duties, and are evidently well
Stred for. Everything about thf premises was in
excellent order, except the building itself, which
is very old, and stands in need of repairs.
At the Insane Asylum, in clharge of Capt. Frk
maux, we found sevetty patients, They appear
to be as well care for as is possible in such a
place. Capt. t'r.utaox informed us that his rem4ui
sitons for supplies, clothing, etc., were pro'nptly
and liberally met; and it was evident the', every

On La Harpe street, near Johnson, Third Dia- ti
trict, is an asylum for destitute widown and their ii
children, and for single womenu-and on the corner Ia
of La Harpe and Johnson streets is an asylum for
old and infirm men. These two asylums were es- b
tablished, and have thus far been sustained, by a to
benevolent society styled " The Ladies of Provi o
dence," of which Mame. Barjac is president, Miss p
Hubbard secretary, and Miss Allain treasurer.
They contain nearly one hundred old men. old p
womenand young cluldre-al helpless and fit h
hobicts of charity. A communiation from tehe i
lady managers informs us that. owing to the great e
falling lffin their income during the last five years, r
they lind themselves witholut means to mke the t
repairs upon their buildings that are abaolutely
indispensable to prevent their going to wreck, and r
in fact, scarcely able to meet the requirements of 1
the inmates for the most essential articles of com
feeL and necessity. snch as clothing, shoes, bed
ding, etc. Through us they appeal to thie charita
ble to render them some aid their most praise- I
worthy undertaking. We trust their call will be t
liberally responded to. I
Our visits to the asylums formed a most plasing
and gratifying part of our duties. We believe it
is admitted that, in proportion to poplrulaion, nor
other city in the world can boastof as many such
Sinstitutions as New Orleans. (lu addition to those
above mentioned, there are many, and some oil a
f very large scale, in tie adjoinirg parish of Jeftlr
son, nearly all of which look to our city for sup
port.) Those of us who had the opportunity of
witnessing how, during the years of trouble and
I trial from which we are but now emerging, those
Sintrusted with the care of these institutions la
bored with might and main to provide for the
r pressing and constantly recurring wants of the
multitude of destitute and helpless dependent upon
their efforts, can testify to the zeal, ability and
faithfulness of the managers of these establish
f ments. By the events ot these past few years of
esorrow and suffering, the resources of many of
e these institutions have been sadly impaired, while
d the demands upon them have increased. The
II ability of our city and State goverrments to aid
n them is les than ever before. We therefore deem
h itnot amiss to call the attention of our citizens
generally to these facts, and to urge upon such
of them as can spare anything from their abund
r ancee, to "remember the widow anid the orphan."
a Any who have means to apply to charitabhle
i- objects cannot go amiae in donating them to any
lyof our asylums. " H' who giveth to tihe poor

From this it would appear that it is not only in O
cases of parties charged with carrying concealed rep
weapons that the reeorderstranscend the authority tico
delegated to them by the laws.
Whether or not it would be desirable to have kee
their powers increased, or to have at intermediate oit
tribunal established for the trial of minor indicta- con
ble offenses, thereby relieving the docket of this 1!
court, and affording a more speedy trial to tihoae exc
charged with petty offenses, we are not prepared olt
to say. But we are of opinion tilat the action of em
the recorders should be strictly confined within the of
limits of their duties and powers as prescribed by mor
law. for
The condition of the negroes and those of negro )
blood in our population is a matter of great In- tico
terest, yet we consider thAt there is little prospect att
of any advantage from discassing the subject at see
present, fur great as may be tle field for action, cm
tlhat would redound to the benefit of tlhis class of to
persons, and at the same time promote the well )
being of our people generally, we see no proba- o
Sbilty of such action being practicable under tile
t existing state of public affairs. Those of thl I
race wthose status has recenotly been changed cticndl e
cIthemselves in a positiotn of fself-dependenee ftor tot
t which, by their past life, they are as yet wholly tie
d tofitled. In time they may, perhaps, acqune Icy
f habits of greater induocry and m rality. Under by
our beneficent and impartial laws they have tile o
1 amplest protection for their rights, and every il- ad
i inducement to improve their condition, and proba
bly in no other community on this continent are mc
e they as weil treated as they are here. But we off
must confess that our experience does not make or
I us very hopeful as to their future advancement,
It and that the great diminrtiou in their numbers
in that has taken place in the last few years leads us
h to believe that within the nent generation or two
Cf they will form a comparatively insigaificant por- M
a tion of our population.
r In parting from your honor, we would take the
P- occasion to express our very high appreciation of t
of the ability, impartiality and fearlessness evinced t
od in tile discharge of your important duties as judge
ee of this court, and the inttrest with which we have
a witnessed your administration of " justice tem- w
e ered with mercy." At same time we would make
or our acknowledgments to the officers of the court t

"To te People of the Usitd State
'"Dangers threaten the Constitution. The cit
arel of our liberties is directly assailed. The
future is dark unless the people will come to the
rescue. In the hour of peril, ' National Union
I should be the watchword of every true man. As
essential to the national Union, we must main
lain unimpaired the rights, the dignity and
the equality of the States, including the
right of representation in Congress and
the executive right of each State to control its
S own concerns, subject only to the Constitution of
tIe United States. After a uniform construction
of the Constitution for more than half a century
the assumption of new and arbitrary powers in
the federal government is subversive of our sys
tem and destructive of liberty. A free interchange
of opinion and kind feeling between the citizensof
all the States is necessary to the perpetuity of the
Union. At present eleven States are excluded
from the national councils. For seven long months
50 the present Congress has persistently denied any
right of representation to the people of those
States. Laws affecting their highest and deares
interests have been passed without their consent,
and in disregard to the fundamental principles of
free government. This denial of representation
has been made to all the members from a State,
although the State, in the language of the Presi
dent, presents itself not only in an attitude of loy
alty and harmony, but through representatives
whose loyalty cannot be questioned under any ex
isting constitutional or legal test. The representa
tives of nearly one-third of the States have not been
consulted with reference to the great questons o
the day. There has been no nationality surround
ing the presen-t Congress. There has been no in
tercourse between the representatives of the two
sectiuns, producing mutual confidence and res
peet. In the language of the distinguished Lieut.
General, it is to be regretted that at thlls time there
cannot be a greater commingling between the citi
zens of the two sections, and particularly of those
entrusted with the law-making power. This state
of thlfgs should be removed at once and forever.

guopl tihe 6tatea from covert attempts to deprive
thiem of their troue position in the Union. and to
bring together these who are unnaturally severed,
andl for those great national purposes only,
we cordmlly approve the call for a Nations
Union Convention, to be held at the city o
Philadelphia, on the second Tuesday,: the
en. 14th day of August `next and en
dorse the principles therein set forth. We
therefore respectfally, but earnestly, urge upon
our citizens in each State, Territory and Congres
OC sioual District in the United States, in the interests
of the Union, and in a spirit of harmony, and with
direct reference to the principles contained in said
call, to act promptly in the selection of wise ,
moderate and conservative men to represent them
in said convention, to the end that all the States
WS. haoll at once be restored to their practical rela
tions to the Union, that the Constitution shall be
maintained, and peace bless the whole country."
