He had been ailing, slightly, for three or four weeks, but continued attending to business as usual. Yesterday,as late as eleven o'clock in the morning, apparently, without seri ous ailment, he was out and at eight o'clock he was a corpse. Capt. Brewer was an attach of the CRESCENT office, where, as in every other relation of life, he was highly respected for his many estimable qualities. Though charged with the care of a large family, he was among the first to enter the Confederate service. During the early part of the war he severed as a lieutenant in the Seventl Louisiana Regiment, and having been promoted, by election, to a captaincy in the Twenty-second Regiment, he closed his military career only with the surren der of Gen. Taylor, when he returned to civil life, honored by his comrades-in-arms for his courage and exemplary conduct. Capt. Brewer was as public-spirited in peace as lie was valiant and faithful in war. He had been for many years one of the most efficient members of the fire department, and, in recognition of his services, as well as in respect to his personal worth, as a private citizen, he was elected fore man of that gallant company. Columbia, No. 5, which position he held at tle time of his death. Aeother chanrge Agalitt N. Drel -fn. of O. tatlnlng Goouds by Faly e Repr cenltlron.+ We have already noticed a complaint lodged be fore Recorder Aisern against N. Dreyfus, of Shreveport, of obitaining dry goods of the valne of twenty-six hundred dollars from the house of Adler & Levy, No. 1ti Canal street, and that lie Swas underbonds in the sum of five thousand dol lars to appear for examination. We find that a similar charge against Mr. Dreyfus has been made before Recorder Gastinel, and will be examinesd to-morrow, and the accused, in this case also, has furnished five thousand dollais hail for his appear T ance. The report on the streets is that Mlr. Lreylus hans purchased goods to to the amount of about seventy thousand dollars from various merchanti in the city upon the representations al:e.ed in the prosecution instituted against him. The docu ments in the offices of the magistrates d- not de5 cribe, specifically, the manner in which the alleged frauds were perpetrated, but in private elnversa E tion we learn from parties interested that it will be attempted to be ,hLwn that M[r. Dreyfus, who is, and has been for years in business in Shreve port, represented in macing his purchases, which were all on credit, that the goods were intended to be retailed in his establishment at Shreveport. but, instead of shipping them to that point he had them auctioned in this city or disposed of other wise, and immediately realized upon them, which is deemed by the merchants considering them selves aggrieved, evidence of intended fraud. In the case before Recorder Gastinel, the com. . plainant is Mr. Joseph McElroy, of the house ol Taylor, McElroy & Co., No. 73 Canal street. Mtr. McElroy avers that the accused, on the 14th inst., purchased from the firm ready made gentlemen's clothing, to the amount of upwards of four thou S sand dollars, and that he obtained the goods upon credit, by falsely representing' that he intended selling them in:the usual course of trade, fromn his house, in Shreveport, and that he had a banking , account with the banking house of Pike, Lapeyre & Brother,of this city. Mr. McElroy further affirms that but for these representations having been believed by his firm, the goods would not have been sold to Mr. Dreyfus on credit; that instead of '5. shipping the goods to Shreveport, he disposed of them "clandestinely in the city," and that he had no account whatever with the banking house of Pike, Lapeyre & Brother. The Courts vs. the Mllittary Authorities. On Mlonday last an affidavit was made before Recorder iGastinel by police officers Thos. Hoegan and N. McGuire, charging Henry Walsh and Geo. Kema, both colored soldiers of the 9th United States cavalry, with firing three shots at the com plainants on the day before, for the purpose of committing murder. The shooting took place on Trfmd street, between Conti and Bienville, while the above named officers were on duty, and the accused have since been confined in the Parish Prison. A question hero arose, owing to the fact that the accused were in the military service, whether the civil courts would be allowed to exercise any jurisdiction in the matter-the usage thus far hav ing varied. In order to ascertain definitely the wishes of our military authorities a letter was ad dressed to the commander of the department by Recorder Gastinel, in which the above facts were recited, and inquiry made as to what should be done with the prisoners. This letter has since been returned to the recorder with the following indorsement: HEADQUARTERS DEPARTaIENT OF THE GnLF, New Orleans, La., Sept. 25, 166. Respectfully returned to Judge Arthur Gastinel. recorder of the Second District Court. who will please have these men brought to trial and pun islted if found guilty. By command of Maj. Gen. P. I. Sheridan: OEOaGE LEE, AM-istant A-nutant eneral. We presume this settles the matter and that this precedent will henceforth be followed. The case referred to has not been fixed for trial. Dendly Assault In St. Charles Parish. On Wednesday evening last, Winm. T. Bartlett, a former resident of this city, but who, for some months past, has been residing at the Boutte station, on the Opelousas railroad, was the victim of an assault from which he narrowly escaped with his life. Returning, after nightfall, towards the above named village, he was halted by a man named E. B. Tinney, who was mounted upon horseback, and who immediately after rode on. Bartlett then proceeded upon his way some dis tance, when he was again overtaken by the same party, this time accompanied by a negro of the neighborhood, known as Sam. The latter carried agun upon his shoulder. Tilney, who is a magis trate of the neighborhood, now demanded his weapons, and commenced, when the latter had delivered up a small knife, to assault him with a sword-cane. His head and arms are still covered with scars, and in one of the latter he received a severe wound. To make a com plete thing of the assault he was twice fired at, as he believes, by the party who had thus far made the attack. Bartlett was finally found in a fainting condition by some of the people of the village, and remained delihious during most of the night. Owing to his weak condition; and to the fact that his assailant is the committing magis trate, no affidavit has as yet been made, and the latter, we believe, has not yet been arrested. The negro is not thought to have taken any ac tive part in the difficulty, and both he and the wounded man are now in the city. The motive of the attack is not known to the party wounded, no words having previously passed between them. A Cimten Mlalin. The police have been notified that a man named Edward Mnullons, about fifty-seven years of age, a carpenter by trade, left his home on Thursday last and has not been heard of since. He was suffering from ill health. Hie is about six feet high, has a fair complexion and grey hair. A D oabtfuil Bargain. Among the distinguished arrivals in our city yesterday, was an eminently colored visitor who, with charming modesty, announces himself to men by the name only of Henry. Henry comes from Ouachita parish, and is now excploilt-ing the city for tile first time. We regret to have to chronicle the fact that his first introduction to us was made under such circumstances as to perhaps lead him to regard with suspicion his new ac quaintances. His exact reason for thinking so is, that immediately upon his landing he was accost ed by a stranger of too pleasing address, who soon convinced him that it would be for his inter est to exchange his watch for that of his new friend's. What added to the plausibility of the argument was that Henry's watch did not keep time, and the stranger's did. The exchange was made, and would have been so definitely, but that a police officer was a witness of the transaction and thought that tie matter had better he referred to the authorities at thle Second D)istrict police, station. The most amusing part of the matter was that Henry's watch proved the most worthless of thle two, and in view of the further fact that the watchmaln had a license to have goods upon the levee, the matter was di-miseed, and the parties left to " trade or travel.," ae they might deem proper. Among the Cloudts. Weather prophets twho witne:lred, yesterday afternoon, the singularly clouded appearance of the heavens, presaged a gatlhering equinoctial stornl as about to burst upon un. of extraordinary fury. And. ill truth, the clouds whtich apparently came rp the river and spread over the opposite heavens were, at times, of such a ghastly, yel lowish, ominous hue, as to have sugg-"ted thought, of plague, famine, or ally otherof tie evils which are usually shadowed forth by portentl. Never thleess, these clouds were of very innocent origin, arising. as we have been infrormred, from th,e inrrt ing lo one of the Claiborne coal p.ts, several miles below the city, and igniting the surrounding dry gra-a and bauhes. Abl.ut sunset, these artificial cloues, inding. pei'haps, that the trick was discovered, had a-,umed a more ro-y hued aplearance, and for any one upon the levee who could for the mo ment lose sight of the surrounldig bales and boxes, and look forth upon the pirturelseite side of art and nature, tile prospect was ala:nst inpiring. Still. we do not think that this ;s a suceicient ex cuse for our describing it at lenglth jut at present Tile dull line of the city-the yellow and red hlouses and slate roofs, cathedral, courts, steam boats, shipping, etc., are still there and if the weather to-day is fine, the materials of the same picture will probably keep until this evening at twilight for those who wish to see it. Fair for the Blenefit ofthe St. Vincent's fIome for Bose. A short time since we had occasion to notice an admirable institution, which is being established here by the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, as a home for friendless and destitute boys. The so ciety, notwithstanding the poverty of its present resources, is about to venture upon opening the institution speedily; and to assist the benevolent project, the ladies of the families of members of the society are preparing to give a fair in Decem ber next, at Masonic Hall. There are eight con ferences of the society already in existence in the city, and the proposed fair may be looked for as one of the finest entertainments of the kind that has ever been given in New Orleans. fBurglary. Night before last the coffeehouse kept by Mr. Ousate, at No. 223 (?) Old Levee street, was bur glariously entered by parties yet unknown, and the sum of $25 and some valuable papers were stolen. All that is further kuown in the matter is, that the door to the barroom was either unlocked by means of a "nighting-ale,' or that thelparty who did the stealing was secreted about the premises. Coroner'. lnquests. The coroner yesterday held inquests upon the following bodies: Upon a colored infant found dead of cholera at 275 Bourbon street. Upon a colored still-born infant found dead at the corner of Tchoupitoulas and Gaienne streets. Mortuary feport..

Pre.sident Johnson is Ridiculed. Etc., Etc., Etc. ifesterdar's Evening Dispatches.l Prrraeons, Sept. 27.-The proceedings of the ii convention yesterday were animated. Several n amusing songs, ridiculing the President were lis- t tened to with laver. Resolutions were passedbhotile to the President. Gen. Butler made a characteristic speech, and Gen. Willich denounced the Cleveland convention ti as made up from the stragglers of the army. 55 A dispatch was received from Gen. Fremont, I which elicited three cheers for him. Butler was the lion of the convention. Among the resolutions presented by Colonel Streight was one asking Congress to direct the President to remove from the late rebel States all w the arms and munitions of war not needed for the O present uts there, which was adopted with one votelin the negative-the tiast and only one of the ft character cast in the convention, and which cre to ated a sensation. The resolutions also indorse the constitutional ci amendment, and assert thatits propositions are the tl mildest terms ever granted to subdued rebels; in that the President has no right to apoliy as against a the legislative department of the government; os that h acts have converted the conquered rebels n into impudent claimants to rights which they have forfeited and places they desecrated; that the to right of the conqueror to legislate for the con. quered is the public law of all civilized nations. (Gea. Butler, in his remarks, said as soon as thesea ycommunities have shown a desireto be received to an humble thankfulness for the clemency meted out to them--becausejit is for men who have erredI to be humble--when they acknowledge their mis take they should be received, but not until then. a r. Davis is, perhaps, by no means the worst man in the Southern Confederacy, but he chose to have the place of a represehntative in man. He played for an emspire, and staked Ils life on the result, and let hims pay the forfeit, (applause) as an example for all time that no man shall plot a treason in the halls of Congress of the United States. (Apllause.) Gen. Lee left the army of the United States and wentinto Virginia and was at the head of the rebel forces of Virginia before his State seceded, and carried her out at the point of the bayonet. Now we have had an Arnold, and he escaped punishment, but he did not remain here. We have, as it seems to be, an equally guiltytraitor, and:the questionto be decided in thsis country is whether his surrender as a prisoner of war when he was captured, shall avail himagainst the desertion of his flag to take service ins the armies of ise enemics of his country. (Cries of no no! I I therefore, again say that I would make an ex ample of this uan, so that, no soldier hereatter shoultd be found to desert the flag of hIis conntry. ((ood, and cheers.) Now then, fellow-soldiers, i what shall be done with the soldier who deserts his flag and takes with him the secrets of his com mander? (Cries of "hang hi.'") Shooting is not good for hins twho deserts for the purpose of taking command in the armies of the enemies of his counitry.

A correspondent. who appropriately signs him selfl "A Victim," sends the following letter to the b Times : The naiit route betweenthe Soudan and Egypt having been transferred to tile Suwalin road,. t was inrducesd on my retan from the Blue Nile to taole that line as the most rapid, and reached So wikinl in a less tisan tea days fros Hartum. I found no steamer at Sewakis, and sailing vessels being prohibited to leave .until eight days alter the last attack of cholera, I elad to await tihe ex Ipiration of tIhat time before I could embrkt for -lgedldah to join a steamer for Suez. As Sawa kin is a notoriously, hot place, and the water there scarcely drinkable fusom its tsackishness, I found this deteniotbn exceessively inconvenient. On eletill st of Juon,, hoswevr, I was allowed to pro sced for Dgeddol. whero- twas detained ten days, ilnd quitted Dgaddah on til 3d sl Julyper steamer Zamlbo, our hill of health denoting "three days withost chitlsa." On the 4th of July we reached Zambo, where, out of aboue 41!00 pilgrims who were forcibly re tainedtelset by the government, to undergo a process fu purification, 2700 remained. Two or thlree months under a ve'tical sun, nothing to eat but tlhe little biscuit and rice supplied by the Egyr ian government, and drinking brackish gf ls'O, so ellotictive in bringing on diarries, which is the precursor of cholera, were the means by wtich tihe rest were sent to their last homes. We had to undergo eight days' quarantine at iZnmho, and then startedl or the Suezs with 6400 t pilgrims in our 700 ton steamer, under a clean bill of health. My faithfulEuglish servant, however, could notholdout so long in thisbarning oven, and B died the day before we left Zambo. The barb'"a. c, on villains onshore refused me aix feet of glround to bury him in, and I had some dleunlty in pullineg out to seatin the life boat to give hIl a wateri Sgrave. ce It took us five days to reassg Sera, a distanqe of 48o miles. .The eurrings of th po, a pT.jin, packed eo closely together, mary uuab e to lie down, and a numbier more smothered ltth 'tweens idecks, is beyond description. They came at the lsegaenp, begging for water which they coolJ not obtain: but l nwa in as bad a ease myself for, as I had taken a first clason passage, they insie'ed that I was bound to remain in the cabin and n t [o on deek, which was allotted to and oe.pie d by the pilgrims. Marems being confined to thea cabins for fearof being seen, and pilgrims ¶$ deck unable to move from their plaet for days together, the mel became insufferable, and the saloon uninhabitable. After reaching Suez, our position was aggra eated by an order coming down from the viceroy that althounghwewere under a cleanbfllof lheti,;, and all wellin regard to cholera, we shosld nec form another quarantine of fifteen days at o ou h t (the pert of Maont Sinai.) Thin wnsrevalttng,a, everybody foresaw that mn case the pilgrims wens pat in farther confinements fearful mortality, and, perhaps, an epidemic was inevitable.. In fact, on arrival at Toor, being landed together with the pilgrims from two other steamera In the sam_ case, they began dying off very rapidly. We, eight Europeans, including twol.da, find,. nlg that the place allotted to the pasenaerawas barren desert shore, guarded bymosesi soldiers exposed to a broiling sun, thakthe water we hat to drink was Obtained from a addy pool wherrit were standing some men with ruanning wudae their legs,and that the head govermmentph said he could get nothing to eat even at the i lage of Toor, refused to land, obtaining from ste chief sanitary attendant a written statement to the effect that it was Impossible for us to live Cm, ouch a place. On retsrningto Suez we were not permitteMle perform what quarantine they unustly reqnuired of n at the Lazerette, but a telegram was received from the viceroy to keep our steamer with a com plement of 100 men on board atf Sez, and to sedn es, eight persons, Immediately baft to Toor by, another steamer. The captain of the frigate Ibra-' niman also received an order; in case We refused to quit our steamer, to take us by force. It W* in vain that we demanded the protection of our respective consuls. They would noit allow n to' communicate with the shore, but carried us aeba in another steamer, starting at 1 o'cloek n.ifi morning. On arriving at Toor the second time, we famid that cholera was ravaging the pilgrims ds share-' but notwithstanding this, and our being on bpsta a clean ship, soldiers were brought on boaret, lt' violently landed ns without even giving as a tent: Only five days afterwards, the chief police son=" stable came to say that tents had arrived from Snez, offering us one. Smust point out here that permission was de nied me of hiring a boat to qait the country and go to Aden. We were detained in this desert until fifteen days after the last case of cholera, and for a third time arrived at Suez under a clean bill of health`. Biat liberty was not obtainable so easily. Another. eight days' quarantine was imposed on us, and they proceeded to land the pilgrims at 6 o'clock'e in the morning seven miles from Suez, on sandy shore, without the least vegetation, no shade, no tents, no water.

As the setier "hemmed them in on all sides, one miserable creg tore in desperation rushed into the see and drowned himself. At this time, when cholera is mowing us down, the corruption~of the Egyptian ofeiials, and thee unwarrantable proceedinga of the government, by which so many ihundreds and even thousands lose their lives, being carried up and down thee. Red Sea cooped up on board ship, and abandoned on desolate wastes for months together, should be taken into serious consideration. The government physicians themselves an knowledge thateholera is brought on almost en tirely through the infamous treatment to whiel thie pilgrims are subjected. For my own part, I have been two months try. ming to reach Suez from Sawakin, a distance of 80D 1 miles, but am still in quarantine, under a clessi bill of health, awaiting the viceroy's decision.
