Pursuant to call made at an informal meeting ta held a few days ago, at the office of Hun. Corne- p, lius Fellowes, about one hundred of the cotton ge factors of the city asstnmbled at the Varieties fr Club-room last evening, to consider a proposition, as to memorialize the federal secretary of the treas- ti ury to modify the regulations issued from that de- a partment ill relation to the collection of the direct as tax of three cents per pound on cotton. The meeting was called to order by Robt. W. b, Estlin, Esq., who, having explained the proceed ings of the preliminary meeting, moved that Mr. tl iFellowes, who presided at that assemblage, ai should be chosen chairman of the present one, and as the motion was unanimously agreed to. Mr. Fellowces thanked the meeting for tile dis tiaotion conferred upon him, and expressed a c wish that some other gentleman should be elected T to the place, but it was insisted that he should serve. Messrs. . M Muson and J. P. Harrison were elected vice prevideants, and Mr. Joseph Denegre, secretary., unanimously. The Chair informed the meeting-that at:the pre- liemieary consultation, lens. S. B. Buckner-. (;en. "F. J. Herron and Capt. A. I. May were appointed a committee to dralt a menlorial to tc sretary of I the treasury, praying for a mo.,ifi-cation of the regalation<. Two drafts had l..eell' pripared,ic but the one written by (len. Buckner, had been o adopted by the gentlemen who attended the pre- a liminary organization, as the most cromlelhe-5ss ess asl forcible. With this explanation.ti5i presiee:st called upon Gen. Buckner to read hi, report. which he dlid, and it u-as usaeiniously a!pproved. Ad it will be publiehedl in full, it i. unn>ecesary to attempt to give an extract of it. As General Buokner r.mlned his seat after read ing the memorial, lie was loudily applauded, and t , on motion of Mr. Ectlin, the thanks of tile mer 1 chants of New Orleans were voted to tie general for his able exposition of the objaeCrise s to the existing regulations, and to the other gentlemen associated with him on the committee. IT Captain May remarkted that it htld een se-' gested that a delegation of two fa:ctore should b alpointed to proceed to Washinton alnd pre--nt t!le see-e!sorial to tie secretary ct thle Ireasa : e , ae-i urge upon him the desiderated change. lieo waso1 agreed that such a dlelegation s nsish l be sent. (;Ge. Buckner, Mr. Fello. ec and -sveoal other gentlemen were named as delegates. Mr. Fe! lowe-, declined-his business would not allow ein to leavhethe city. l enf. G uchneer alse , -i 1 to be excusei--he doubted if, with hi-i presntlt ,pot ical status, he could be of any scrvice on the pro poesd mission. Mr. E-tlin insisted upon the nominatiocn of the general. Ite trusted. fromn the attitude of Presi. dent Johnson, that hatile day had passed wahen the political record of the general would depirive irim of his just influenee. After some further discussion a committee, cou sisting of Mr. Richard Nugent. G(en. tHrron. Capt. May, Mr. Wmn. Mi. Pinckard, and the president and vice presidents of the meeting, was chosen to a, attend to prissing, and was empowered to appoint delegates to go to Washington. The proceedings and memorial were ordered to bte published to-morrow, officially, in four of the LU, city papers, and two thousand copies were ordered to be printed in pamphlet form. to be circulated among the factors at tie other cotton marts of the South, with the view of inducing tie co,-operation of those factors in pressing the subject upon the Ea, attention of the government. The gentlemen present then signed the memo rial, and copies were ordered to be left at several offices to-day for the signatures of the factors absent from the meeting. Ds. The meeting then adjourned. The Killing of James . lekin. Yesterday afternoon, about ha f past ixo'clock. i Thomas Behan was arrested at the boarding house which he keeps, at the corner of Erato and H New Levee, charged with the murder of James 1 Mackin. It appears, from the statement of parties p who were present,that Mackin, who was a drays f driver, had been boarding with Behan, and, a short time previous to the killing, had g one to his D room, greatly affected by liquor. The witnesses g all refused to give any immediate circumstances of the killing, but a drunken quarrel is supposed to a have originated between the prisoner and the de- t ceased, F The latter, at any rate, was found, soon after the sounds of altercation between lhim and Behan, with the wound in his body, and which resulted u soon afterin his death. Win. McDonald. Jane J Byrnes (a sister-in-law of Behan's), Mrs. Behan (his wife), Robert Harkness and Dennis Mahoney, are among the witnesses who have been arrested for the State. All of the parties were last night confined at the Pecanier station. Mackin is represented to have been a driver who saved money in his business, and who had intended leaving his boarding housethe day of the killing. I Coroner's Inquests. The coroner yesterday held the following in quests: Upon the-body of colored John Cones, s. sixty years old, of Louisiana, found dead at No. 272 St. Joseph street-cholera. Upon the body of colored William Nash, aged eighty years, of South Carolina, found dead at No. 234 Girod street-acute dysentery. Bonad of Health. A regular weekly meeting of this board was held last evening. Present, Dr. Smith in the chair, Dr. Foster, Dr. Austin, Mr. CGrevy, Mr. t* Rsqui and Mr. McCoard. t'he minutes of tile previous meeting were read anl approved. A communication from Dr. IIulne, health ofi cfr of the First District, was read, It requested the attention of the board to the neces.ity f.r taking measures to secure legal assistance for him in the carrying out of the provisions of the health ordinance. Aecompaoying it were copies of correspondence with the atsistant city attorney and other city and State legal functionaie'. The responsibility of according the de.ired aid was shifted by each of them. On motion of Dr. Foster, seconded by Dr. Au- tin, it was resolved that the communication should ie laid on the table, and on motion of Mr. Baquid, it was left subject to call. The report of Coroner Delery, as already pub lished in the newspapers, was presented and read. It was referred to the committee on health. er. A communication from Dr. Lazare, quarantine physician, was presented and read, stating that the schooner Cora, with two cases of cholera on board, was believed to have "rul the blockade," and come to New Orleans-most probably to the Old Basin. On motion, the matter was left in the bands of the secretary of the board, who undertook to in quire into it, and also as to the advisability of ap pointing an officer to attend at the Old Basin to see that the quarantine law or health ordinance is t, not violated by vessels arriving there. The reports of the several health officers were laid before the board. On motion of Dr. Foster, the reading of them was dispensed with. A communication from Mr. Waterman, with ac comnpanying ldoueo ntn on the eniject of the cloing of the soda water stands iR the Second SDistrict, was read. On motion of Dr, Foster, a resolution was passed, directing the Lesith officer of the Second District to remove his prohibition, on the vendor's undertaking to draw the soda water through block tin pipes. S S Then the hboard adjourned. Yesterday. We rather pitied some of the fair who were" tempted out yesterday. One with a small parasol, ~ who walked along under a heavy shower, andt ig tried to look as if nothing was the matter, es e- pecially excited our sympathy. No amount of 0 gathering up nicely of skirts could keep them es froml having a generally bedraggled appearance, [ ', and even when they were nicely gathered up, all ."- the trouble apparently was not over. There was a" a suspicious glancing behind; and there was the t uneasy doubt which was only too visible, that somebody ml lit be looking at feet which some " body knew very well they hal no right to see. Ht tinring thus. sympathized and moralized as to r. tile difficulties of the situation, under a protecting e, shelter, we sallied forth and determined to wade ad around a little for our-elves.

I Still the demonstrations on the departure of the President and his party were not wanting in enthu siasm. They left at 0 o'clock this morning, and were escorted to the depot by a battalion of regu-. lars, surrounded by a number of citizens. The trip was very pleasing. At Terre Haute a platform had been erected, decorated with flags, devices, etc.. around which thousands of people had gathered in spite of the weather, and provided abundantly with umbrellas to protect themselves against it. Owing to the heavy rain, however, the Presidential party did not alight. Nevertheless bands of matic came on board the train and accompanied thle party from Terre e Haute to Indianapolis, as also did a deputation on behalf of the authorities and citizens generally. At Greencastle, on the line between Illinois and Indiana, a large body of the country people had gathered on foot and on horseback, and they Smanifested quite strong enthusiasm. The presidential party reached Indianapolis i- about S o'clock in the evening, and were received y by a splendid torchlight procession already in waiting at the station, whence the party drove to e the hotel through dense crowds, accompanied by i. the torch-bearers. d The procession was a mile and a half long. On the arrival of the presidential party in front of the Bates House, an immense concourse was t found to have already surrounded the building, e obstructing to impassibility every avenue of ap proach. The hotel itself and all the houses in the vicinity were splendidly illuminated and decorated n with as much profusion as taste. e The people called for President Johnson and Gen. Grant with enthusiasm that might almost be ie characterized as frantic, and that, at times, be came perfect screams of applause. oe The President and his accompanying party tshortly afterwards appeared on the balcony of op the hotel,on which the mayor of the city delivered it an address, welcoming thetm to the hospitalities of the city. Some of the State authorities had purposely ab n sented themselves from the city: but the universal a opinion was, that notwithstanding thi< petty dis play of vulgar malignity, Indianapolis Lhad never before witnessed such a scene nc the reception of et the President. The streets, the hotels, and all . the places from which a view of the procession ; could be commanded were'perfectly jammed with I crowds of people, all excited to the highest pitch 2j of enthusiasm. The persistence of the people in :3 continuing and repeating their applause was 4 really something wonderful. The Democratic 99 club were out in full force and contributed in no 2 slight degree to the general manifestations of ap 36 preciation and delight. 0 Mr. Seward, in the course of a speech which . he made to the people, announced that it was | definitely settled that it would be impracticable Sfor the President and his party to visit New Or , leans, as invited to do, inasmuch as they must 5 positively be in Washington by Saturday next. ,L A change in the temperature enabled the party ear to endure the twelve hours' journey much better than they had previously been able to do, The crowd is gradually thinning off on account i Inl of the rain. Eta. Ihs SECOND DISPATCH. INoDANAPoLIs, Sept. 10.-About half-past eight o'clock this evening, just after the President had retired from the balcony of the Bates House, quite ha a brisk shooting affair took place. A crowd of sal radicals, who had evidently organized and assem bled for the purpose, attacked the torch bearers go of the procession which had accompanied the a Presidential party to the hotel, particularly en deavoring to wrest from them an Irish standard eol which they carried. at tht This was nothing more nor less than a manifesta- pl tion of the real animus of the radicals against of Fenianism in particular, and people of foreign an descent or connections generally. wl The assault led to a lively kirmish, in the course ct of which there were several people knocked lal down, a few pistol shots were fired, and two per. wi sonswere wounded-one in the knee and another mi in the eye. In half an hour after this affair had apparently been quelled another fracas occurred, a in the course of which one old man was killed outrightbeing wounded by three balls. Mr. Stagg. the reporter of the Louisville Jour- IH nal, was struck in the hand by a ball. to No soldiers or policemen were present to pre vent such shameful proceedings. to These ou:breaks are the subject of general and excited conversation. GIeneral Grant pronounces st: them most disgraceful. co The President did not hold a public reception, di and retired at an early ouor. di The crowd dfipersed about ten o'clock, and from that time the city has remained quiet. ic ELA. Le-IStrILLE, Sept. I1.--Ater the disgraceful to conduct of the mob at Indianapolis last night, the radical mob held a meeting, at which the most rviolent and indendiary remarkse were made, with-: out qualification or restraint. The efforts of these taalignants, however, proved a signal fail- C ure. Nobody would respond t ttheir bitterness. tl The President addreossd the assembled people t' in front of the Bates Horse, and appeared to thor- h oughly overawe the conspirators by the fearless p manner in which he criticised their conduct. His o remarks were received with continued plaudnit, Ii both at the hotel and at the station to which he P made his way this morning. f SMr. Seward also made -ome observations,whici tl were list. aed to with the most respectful atten tion. N The day has been altogether a most delightful one. The party have passed through the finest 1 parts of Indiatnawhere the reception contrasted it favorably with that at Indianapolis. is At Franklin, Edinburgh and Seymour, the peo- tl ple turned out en masse to meet the President and party. Salutes were fired, very elegant decora tions were prepared, the people had collected in numbers that could not le counted, and their en thusiasm seemed to be boundless. The President made several brief but effective speeches on the route; and at half-past 2 o'clock f this morning they arrived at Jeffersonville. An t immense crowd had already gathered, and their l '. demonstrations were of the most flattering char acter. The crowtd subsequently made similar demonstrations, filling the entire area of the platform. The reception by the municipal authorities was th very formal. Speeches were made and a salute I 05 was fired by a battery of regular artillery. th Then the party crossed the Ohio river amidst of the vociferous acclamations of the people assem- of bled for the occasion on both banks of the river. ha A regiment of regular infantry was posted at to the landing and were surrounded by masses of at people on all sides. in A very pretty feature of the reception was 00 the presence of thirty-six little girls dressed in to white, who strewed flowers in front of the Presi v-i dent during his passage to the carriages. no The drive through thle city to the courthouse us was through one continuous triumphal scene. bc Thle houses were decorated with flags and b flowers,and every one was evidently enjoying the hi general holiday. or Perfect order was maintained throughout the dr proceedings. of An official reception took place in front of Williard's Hotel, where an elevated stand was as erected for their use. c Old men had assembled two hours before the Sc arrival of the procession. t. Prominent among the committee of reception re were Leslie Coombsand Geo. D. Prentice. Senator Guthrie, as chairman, made reception th a speech and General Rousseau did honors as the member from this district. The court house op posite, was crowded witl} people in windows, on l steps and in the grounds. There were fully twenty thousand people await- C ing the arrival of thea.cortege, including a large W number of ladies. The hotels are crowded with elegantly dressed ladies, vieing with the New , York spectacle. in The procession came in sight with Gov. Bram- di lette and suit, the city authorities and all the va rious societies, extending in double line for nearly d two miles. t1 On the appearance of the President to be intro- c d duced by Mr. Gnthrie, the crowd raised repeated yells, and continued them, at short intervals, dur lug the speeches. h The President responded to the introductory 1 speech in a very feeling manner and nI compli- c - mentary terms to Mr. Guthrie, and restated, I also, the entire outline of his policy. He comu t pared the Philadelphia convention to that of the late Southern loyalists, which he pronounced a farce. TiThe affair formed a splendid panorama. h Secretary Seward was subsequently presented amid the frantic yells of the populace. IReferences to Kentucky's position in all Ameri c can wars elicited great applause. He said that o the white people of the free States are divided as to the restoration. The slave States are ited in their desire to see the country re h stored, and are sound and sincere in their loy ms alty. He would bedr that testimony in the face e of the world. r- Gen. Rousseau was received with thunders of st applause, but he declined to speak. The party then left for the Louisville House, ty where a splendid banquet was prepared. Ar About eight o'clock the President anu. party left on the steamer United States fos Madison, Ind., where a magnificent reception awaits them. To-morrow morning we will reach Cincinnati. ELA. LOUISVILLE, Sept. 11.-The Presidential party have arrived in this city. Thosands uporn thou sands of people arrived early to greet them. AN; Over one hundred and fifty thousand spectators gathered in the streets to welcomesthe ,President, which they did with demonstrations of great joy, and with prolonged cheering. Tl~e Presidential party were escorted through let some of the principal streets by military and civil Pe associations. Flags were everywhere thrown to the breeze, and devices of all kinds were dis Splayed. Thn sidewalks were lined with persons day of both sexes and all ages. Windows, doorsteps e and porticos were thronged, principally by ladies, cat who waved their handkerchief~s to the passing ex- J curtionists. The President, in an opecsrriage, with Secre tary Seward, Colonel Welles and Captain Qherley, Te was kept busily engaged in bowing to ,the excited Tu multitude. arm It was indeed a gay time in Louisville, in which all the inhabitants seemed to participate. The mit stores having been closed, all business was ss- dec Spended. the The procession halted in front of the Court isar Hlouse, and the distinguiahed guests were escorted to Williard's Hotel, directly opposite. The stand was profusely adorned with flags, and ago a motto was plainly in view with the words "Hail tha to the Chief.'" for CrowJa of ladies and gentlemen were onthe stand aod a balcony, presenting a gay and animated asc1 scene, while the streets were densely crowded. We The Hen. James Guthrie introduced the Presi- the dent in complimentary terms, hidding him a cor dial welcomre. No S The President spoke for a long time on the top- foe ics of the day, and was frequently cheered. He referred, in veryc feeling terms, to the manner in qu whichlhe had been received by the State of Ken- .10 i trky, and particularly by the city of Louisville. at t guiahed gentlemen, and to Senator Guthrie, who for acted as their representative on the occasion. lHe thean drew Ifgraphic outline of his own political career, showing throughout his devotion to the D - Constitution and the Union. He said that when the crisis came and the rebellion commenced, he le I took sides in favor the maintenance of the Union, he was no less opposed to the consolidation of i power in the government. If the present Congress is were permitted to continue their course, it would finally succeed in establishing a concentrated des I potism, and eventually in the establishament of a monarchy. He referred to the passage of the freedman's bureau bill, the civil rights and Mon tana bills as testimony to this opinion. fe He then referred to the assaults of varionuskinds tll which had been made upon him, and announced sii his determination to stand immovelale where he wm had already taken his position-on the battle ments of the Constitution. Referring to a pleas- ma d ing demonstration in which thirty-six young girls thl had personated the States of the Union, he said lyt that our country was like Cornelia of old, equally ma d prolud of the beauty and achievements of one hi child, and the others nourished them all with equal m care. to in Secretary Seward was then vociferously called w n. for. Ile spoke acceptably to the dense assemblagd tl in support of the restoration policy of the Presi- tl dent. Secretary Sewardthankedthe audlence for m e the kind reception. ItHe stated that this was his t k first appearance before a Kentucky audience, but i1 on that lie wasnevertheless free in mind, inheart, and T air in utterance, to express his genuine sentiments be ar- fore the people of Louisville. He would not bold n different language here in the slightest degree a from what he would in other cities and States of s he the Union.

New PaBLItsTIN.--A schedule of stamp duties and articles and occupations sabject to tax under the United States excise laws has just been published, and is for sale at this office and at all the bookstores. This volume contains afull list oi t the manufactures and products that are exempt. from tax, and is in every respect a oade mecun upon the subject which It treats. The negro is essentially a nocturnal animal'and his habits in this respect are natural and not ac quired. When he was a alave-there was some reason for his nightly prowlings and enjoynomete,. because then his days were devoted to the work of his owner. But now, when one would sppose I- that freedom had imparted a peculiar aharm to tihe novelty of diurnal recreations, we. find hat Cttoee still elilgs, with unabated affection, to the shades of evening and the hours of advancing midnight. In common with rats, bats,.owls, wea g sels, minks, coons and possums, all his pursuits . and social pleasures are reserved for the night. 'ftcre was nothing to prevent the negroes, before (General Terry put an exrtinguisher apon their t military exercises, from drilling on Navy Hill in r the day time. n But we would as soon have expected to see a delegation of possums in that locality by daylight as a collection of negroes when the sun was shin it ng. This preference for night over day is a trait ty which the negroes brought witl theam from Africa; n travelers in that quarter of the globe have fre quently commented upon it. Ir- lnountl greay conduc to the comfort oceom tn munities in town and country, as well as to the se d curity of pigs, poultry and corn-cribs, if Coffe t ould become civilizedin his habits and go to bed like white people. Cannot the freedmen s bureau and the school-marms, by their moral influene and r- example, eradicate this barbarous habit of turning nst night into day. It is time that steps were taken to di- impart to Cuesome knowledge of the proprieties and humanities of life, and the sooner these neoc turnal savage instincts are laid aside, the better for of him and every one else.-[RiohbmondTimes. v A lwnsuit has been commenced by iEo .ew Texas State government, to regain 5ena of two " millions and twenty-five thousand dollars from line Ebenezer N. B. Nichols, a flaiancal agenat of th it late State government. that Nichols the had failed to account for cotton and United States bonds to that amount, and that the returns of the toss State treasury show him a defaulter, even after lnd allowing for all possible payments to the Rich dbe nend authorities and others. It appears that Nichols claims that at the general break up on the close of the war his agents everywhere appropri rave ated the bonds and cotton in their possession, and pi- refaured to render an account. The law authori ties, however, claim that Nichols is t am for the acts of his agents, and are g' |with him on the subject. Whether I to government will male anything or visi- remains to be seen.
