Early in April last, one Christian Sieckenius en tered the office of Recorder Gastinel, and without , cause.]or saying aught to signify his purpose, pCt -tatbbed Mr. G;astinel with the large blade of a to poecket knife, which had been so lately sharpenedl fu that the oil from the whetstone wan still on the co blade. The wound was in the abdomen, and for some days was regarded as dangerous, but ulti mately proved not fatal. Mr. Gatincel, who i; now upon his bench daily, it is almost superfluous Stn to say, entirely recovered from the injury. na Sieckenius was arrested and has since been in EF prison awaiting trial on an indictmlent found the against him by the grand jury, for stabbing Mr. bu iGatinel, with intent to murder. When the case ski was called f,-r trial, in the Fir-t District Court, in na Jutne last, on motion of thl di-trict attorney, who wi stated that he had been informed the prisoner he woo insane, a medical commission, consisting of tie Dr. H. Bayou, city physician, Dr. Delery, coroner, ha and Dr. Choppin, was appointed to examine the tal mental condition of the accused. The commission made the annexed report to the court: At the request of the Honorable First District th Court of New Orleans, to report on the mental state of Christian Sieckecius, 1. thIe undersigned,. city physician of the Second and Third Districts of New Orleans, after anexamination of said Siecke nius, and. in conjunction with )Doctors Choppin ne and Delery, appointed by the eourt for the same be object, most respectfully inform the court: tic 1. That said Steekenius, a German by birth, and 36 years of age, has been hving in America for the pc last ten or eleven years. 2. That lie has been a druggist by occupation, anod, after haing been employed in several drug si stores in New Orleans, traveled to Texas asd hbo e worked in the medical department of tlhe Confed- so erate army under Gen. Magruder, as a druggists t clerk. w 3. That said Sieckenius claims to be aninventor of important improvements in firearms. S 4. That he says that he was robbed of his in ventians and papers nine years ago, by some par- fi ties belonging to a convention (fictitious, I sup pose,) the members of which, amongst others, C were Jeff. Davis and Arthur Gastinel. 5. That he had applied three different times to fc t Recorder Gastinel to the effect of having his pro perty restored to him. 6. Tat the last time he stopped at the court li said Sieckenius understood that Recorder Gastinel a would not take up his case immediately in hand, and for such delay resolved to punish him by re sorting to and effecting stabbing upon the judge's person. 7. That whenever said Sieckenius has been inter- Ji rogated on the subject he has always given the b same answers. I, therefore, am of opinion from the above facts r that Christian Sieckenius was, when he committed his act, and is still, laboring under mental aberrta- I 0 tion, and that his insanity must be conaldered as monomania in its ambitious forOm. H. BATON, D. M. P. tI Separate certificates were given by Drs. Choppin and Delery, concurring in opinion with Dr. Bayou. D Upon this report, and on motion of the district t attorney, Sieekenius was ordered by Judge Abell a yesterday to be transferred to the Lunatic Asy lum. S.ik-::_ Coroner's Inquests. Coroner Delery yesterday held inquests upon the 1 following bodies: Jose Auduo, aged 35, Mexican, 306 Bienville street cholera. Adelaide Davis, Louisiana, aged 23, 542 Love street; cholera. re. Colored infant at Milneburg, died at birth. HMortuary eporL The whole number of deaths during the twenty four hours ending at 6 o'clock yesterday morning, was 48, of which 28 were from cholera. Whites 13, blacks 15. No report is made to the Board of Health of the deaths of negroes in the Marine Hos pital. But five casesof choleraic diarrhea were re. ported in the military hospitals for white troops. Joint Caommttee. of the Common Counell. Lt, The joint committees of t'e common council, who, within certain limita., possess the authority of that body, during, the recess, were in secret session yesterday. sWhat they did we have not ., earnes. It has'neen the practice to give to the press such proceedings as may not he ord red to be- kept secret. We were present at the chamber where the committees mnet a few minutes after the adjournment, and remained there until after 3 o'clock, but were unable to find the secretary or procure any information from other sources. We oshll, perhaps, have more to say on this sulhject. A Skilfuil and Daring Theft. Betwoen seven and eight o'clock yeet.-trlaV emorninp, a young man, well attired, applied to i clerk in tihe office of Mr. A. Marchand, on Crnunon street, between St. Charle and Caroudelet streets, fo,r the return of a watch which he had left there on the preceding Saturday. The cler]k, who was the only person connected with the establishment in the oficle at the time, went to tile rear to the safe, in which the watch had been placed. After a very brief absence he returned to the front with the watch, and, as he did so, perceived the young man leaving. At the instant, some one on the street apprised him that a case of diamond- in the window had been stolen, and he saw the aplplicant for the watch and another man cross the street and go into the St. Charles IHotel. It twac found I that thirty-five hundred dollars worth of jewelry had been stolen from the window. The natural asppr.ition is that the man who asked for the watch sought to take the clerk away from the front, while a confederate plundered the window. h The clerk pursued the two men through the hotel, B saw them emerge into Gravier street, and there enter a cab, which conveyed them to the rear of II the city. It isunderstood the police have infor- ti mation sufficient to enable them to identify and F bring to justice the audacious thieves. it Col. James Nelllgan. tl We had the pleasure of taking our friend Col. James Nelligan, last evening, by the hand. He t has been over the lake, and looks as bronzed and hearty as if he had just concluded one of the many t Virginia campaigns in whichhe participated. He hoped to be here in time to participate in the ob sequies of the lamented Col. Nolan, whose fall he witnessed at Gettysburg, and whom lie succeeded in command of the regiment, but has been disap pointed. The many friends of the colonel will be t glad to see him in such robust health. The Butehers and the Publhe Hlealth. The butchers of the Fourth District hIave taken tile initiative in suggesting to the public authori- t ties measures, in connection with the meat rbus- I neons, and regulations for the markets, calculated to prevent the sale of unwholesome flesh. The butchers are, necessarily, better informed than 1 any other class of the community as to the re forms which will secure to the people sound and hlealthy meat, and their recommendations shlOuld he heard with the respect due to practical knuw ledge and a patriotic purpose. Varlous Items. Several loads of foreign liqotrs, valued at $2000, woa -eized Iy Lieutenant Jacobs between 5 and `, o'clo.k yesterday morning. in the lower part of the city, on suspicion that tihe goods hlad been smuggled. The liquors were transferred to the rervene authorities of the federal government, and the men in charge of the wagons, Michael Coseune, John Ladowich, Louis Oarson, John Matoano and J. Frank, were arrested and held in custody. An attempt having been made on Monday night to rob the counting room of Messrs. Thomas M. Scott & Co., No. 81 Carondelet street, which at tempt was frustrated by the vigilance of Sergeant McManus of the First District police, the firmr yes terdc:y addressed the subjoined note to the chief of police, awarding to the sergeant a just meed of praise. Take the police of New Orleans noa a whole, it is now the best in the world. It has the courage to confront danger, and the integrity owhich cannot be corrupted by rascals: d NEW Onaceono, Aug. 21, t15a. Allow us, through youn to tender our thanlks to Sergeannt McMaous, for the prompt and efficient performance of his duty last night, which saved -as from loss, although the burglars were success ful in entering our office and opening our safe, containing several hundred dollars. Tues. X. SCOTT , CO. A Good Appointment. Capt. Beverly Kennon, formeriy of the United a States navy and latterlybf theConfederate States avy. lhas been appointed agent of the National Exprees company at Demopoli.s Alabama. Capt. I Kennon's deeds as a sailor and soldier are historic, butitis notonly as a man of unsurpassed daring and skill in his profession he is distinguished. As ord nance officer under Gen. Lovell, when that officer was in command here, Capt. Kennon proved that he possessed a high order of dhlrini.trative abili ties, and the company is to be congratulated upon having secured the services of so able a represcn tative. Reecodert' Courtst.

Eliza s was sent to the workhouse for ninety days, for being, besides, drunk and res;sting arrest. r Martin Lyman was sent to the workhouse as a no juvenile vagrant. jMr. H. Barry, charged with offering a bad 50c. mi bill to car driver No. 141, was dismissed by the recorder, the evidence shoawing clearly that there B was no reason to suppose Mr. Barry knew the bill lie was spurious. Cn STErmnOAT SALE.-Public attention is called to the fact that the sidewheel steamer Martha E. Allen, now lying at Algiers in complete running order, is now offered for sale on advanstageous t terms. Her capacity is 1000 bales of cotton. See .1 advertisement. CHANGE IN THE SCHEDULE OF THE JACKSON AND T GiseAT NORTHERN RAILROAD.--Iu order to promote a public convenience the cars on this great thorough- b e fare now leave New Orleans at 3 P. a., making a, close connections with all branch roads, Canton, F Grenada, Grand Junction, Jackson, Tennessee, 4 e Humboldt and Cairo, and all points North and I East. The time by this safe and popular route from the Crescent City to New York is three days and fifteen hours, or eighteen hours shorter than by y any competing route; the danger and usnertaiaty of lake and river travel are avoided; there is no e quarantine on passengers, freight or baggage; commodious sleeping cars go all the way to Grand Junction without change; baggage checked e- through to all points, and the fare is exceedingly low. 5. This railroad route is certainly the most cim nil, tortable, reliable, speedy and, econi'mical line of ity travel existing between this, city and the populous ret regions of the North, Wo'at and East. not Attention is called to the advertisement in an the other coloUnh, TELEGRAPHIC DISPATCHES.

Ch iREVOLUTOn IN THE EIGHTEEaTH- AND SINEn rer oHESTn CrenTUno.e-The subjoined extract Kt from the writings of Edmund Barke, though the written nearly a century ago, and in reference ate to a distant corntry, is sing larly applicable ge: to the action and policy of the present Con gress of the United Statesn: Out of the tomb of the murdered monarchy in nee France has arisen a vast, tremendous, uniformed a specter, in a far more terrific guise than any the whlch ever yet have overpowered the imagination etc and snudued the fortitude of man. Goingostrai-ht for.ard to its end, nnappalled byperil;uchecred by remorse, despising all common maxims and all common means, that hidecoc phantom overpow- be ered those who could not believe it was possible fe she could at all exisrt. A republic, with an uncultivated and half de f populated country, with a distressed enslaved and lamiohed people pasing with a rid, eccen tric, incalculable e3nrse, fromthe wildest anarchy tin to the sternest despotism, has sctuatlly conqoered the finest parts of Europe; has distressed, di- at' united, deranged and broke to pieces all the rest. of What now stands a government in France was tit struck at a heat. The design is wicked, im- wi moral, impious, oppressive, bis it is spirited and na daring: it is systematic; it is simple in its prinei sle: it has unity and consistency in perfection. I that country, entirely to cut olsa branch of commerce, to extinguish a manufacture, to des- i troy the circulation of money, to violate credit, to t suspend the course of agriculture, even to burn a th city or to lay waste a province of their own, does not cost them a moment's anxiety. To them, the a will, the wish, the want, the liberty, the toil, the blood of individuals is as nothing. Everything is referred to the production of torce; afterward, everything is trusted to the use of it. It is miLi- ti tary in its principle, in its maxims,.in its spirit and in all its movements. The State has dominion and Fr conquest for its sole objects; dominion over mids, by proselytism--over bodies, by arms. Thous constituted, with aon imnmense body of es natural means, which are lessened in their amount to only to he increased in their- effect. France has, Ia sitnce the accomplishment of the revolution, a o complete unity in its direction. It has detroyed every resource of the State which depends upon opinion and the good will of individuals. The or riches of convention disappear. The advantages at of nature in some measure remain; even these, I en admit, are astonishingly lessened; the com- ft maod over what remains is complete and t0 absolute. They have found the short cut ft to the productions of nature, whilst others are obliged to wind througl a very itoricate state of society. They seine upon the fruit g at the labor, they seice npon the laborer him- t. self. Were France but half of what it is in population, in eompactnoes, in applicability ofd ets force, sitoated as it is, it would be too strong for most of the States of Europe, constituted as they are, and proceeding as they proceed, Would it be wise to estimate what the world of' Europe, a as well as the world of Asia, had to dread from r Genghis Khan, upon a contemplation of the cold d and barren spot in remotest Tartary from whence a first issued that scourge of the human race? M. Material resourcesnever have supplied nor ever d can supply the want of. unity in design and con stancy m pursuit, but unity in design and perse- i verence and boldnessin parsoit have never wanted t, resources, and never will. We have not consid s ered the dtreadful energy of a state in which the property has nothing to do with the government. SReflect,agsin and agaio, on a government in which the property is s complete subjection, and a where nothing rules bhet the minds of desperate I a- men. The condition of a commonwealth not gov erned by its property was a combination of thingsin which the learned speanlator Barrington, who has y tossed about society into all forms, never could Simagine to be possible. We have seen it; and it d the world will shut their eyes to this state of things Sthey will feel it more. The rulers there have found resources in crimes. The discovery is se dreadful ; the mine exhaustless. They have every o thing to gain, and they hare nothingto lose. They -. have a B.undleas inheritance in hp.e, ant there is no edioum for them between the highes elevation and death with infamy. to No living man could better or more searchingly portray the schemes and endeavors.
