Meeting o*f stteon Factors.
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
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.
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.
We reached Canal street without any other ad

a carried like a lance in rest, thrust in our face.

Preparations for Reception at Terre
Most Disgraceful Radical Violence.
INDIsANAPOLI, September 10.-It has been rain
ing heavily all day, and there has consequently
Sbeen a certain amount of dullness prevailing.
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
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
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
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
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

amid the frantic yells of the populace.

as to the restoration. The slave States are

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.

which they did with demonstrations of great joy,
and with prolonged cheering.

some of the principal streets by military and civil Pe
associations. Flags were everywhere thrown to

S The President spoke for a long time on the top- foe

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. On reflection it had particularly sug- I
gested itself during his tour, that from the capital
,as through the State of Maryland, and what was gen
at I erally called the Keystone State, and the great
State of NAcw York, and through Michigan, and
througah a part of Illinois to St. Louis, in the State
dst of Missouri, and again through the southern parts
,- of Illinois and Indiana to the city of Louisville, he
had found that while in the Northern States there
was a great difference on the subject of tile res
at toration of the Union, in the Stateoaf Kentucky,
of and he might with equal propriety say I
in all the Southern States, there was an entire
as unanimity of opinion in favor of the Union of the
States. The South was sound and sincere in its
* loyalty to tihe Union. The reason of this was ob
vious and foundled on simple principles of human
nature. The ideas on which this war had been
sue undertaken, were nurtured in the South fifty years
before their practical execution. The battle had
been fought and the South had lost, and naturally
nd the re-action was the greater, for their sufferings
he had been greater, and the party that had suffered
most in its efforts to break up the Union, was evi
ihe dently now best satisfied in accepting the results
of the contest.

At the conclusion of the war, President John- car,
,on summoned three persons to consult with him sug
as to the conditions on which the Southern States in
could be re-admitted to the Union. He (Mr. city
Seward) was one of these parties, and he advised ours
that when the flag of secession and slavery was is al
hauled down from its stallff the Union should be
restored in its full integrity. N
In answer to a demand from the crowd to tell dut
them something about Mexico, he replied, "Yes, ned
I will tell you something about Mexico. Take pub
rare of the States you have already got, and when tte
you hare secured them, we will talk to you about the
Mesico." fror

Custar and Crook were introduced, and received T
with applause. Gen. Rousseau was at home his
among his friends. quil
The party then repaired to the Louisville Hotel, era
where quarters had been provided, and where an nf
immense crowd were gathered to greet the Presl- thia
dent, which they did by loud cheers. A splendid the
banquet was given at the Louisville Hotel. The Co.
chief marshal Gen. Jeff. C. Davis and his aids con- sei
ducted things very creditably. Notwithstanding sel

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

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
