His ea k remains were deposited in the tomb of the fire sill department, and were followed by a large proces- po sion. Some two or three hundred of the police force turned out, with Major Manning at their head. After them came deputations from the A various fire companies of the city; next Columbia tna0 Fire Company No. 5, of which deceased was fore- We man, and the train terminated with a lengthy col- Oro umn of carriages, filled with citizens. The re- lur: spect paid to the memory of this truly good citi- Ord zen bespeaks the estimation in which public and the private virtue is held by the people of New and Orleans. ref reg A Bad Occurrence. ay The remains of Captain Simmons J. Shaw, a thi gentleman widelyknown and universally esteemed, coo have been brought to this city from Alexandria Alt and will be interred to-day, from St. Patrick's liet Church, the funeral ceremonies at half-past 10 l o'clock this morning. Captain Shaw was a son of the late John I. adE Shaw, Esq., of the well known banking house of rot Benoist, Shaw & Co. Captain Shaw having, in I common with many others who served in tile Con- oc federate army to the close of the war, sulkfred in fro fortune, sought to retrieve himself in pecuniary An circumstances by cultivatidg the soil. Ite became Th a partner of Mr. J. F. Wood in working a planta- col tion in lapides parish. The plantation being sit. uated in a part.of the parish where there was a very on sparse white Iopulation, and alargely preponder- me ating negro population, he sought to imlpres, upon Mrs. Wood the necessity of being expertin the use of the pistol. While instructing her in the use of eh the weapon, she went into tile yard to practice, artid he, coming in a direction diferent from that she a had reason to expect him, a ball from her pistol' it hit him and proved fatal. do Although a coroner's inquest resulted in aci quitting her of all blame, the lady is, as might bic St suppo'ed, most unhappy to think, that even acci ce T dentally, it was her misfortune to be the cause ol the the death of so estimable a gentleman. Another Charge Againlst Dreyfus. Another affidavit was made yesterday, before Recorder Ahern, charging N. Dreyfus with ob taiinig goods upon the same representations alleged to have been made in purchasing frorl E parties who had previously prosecuted him. We a have not been pernmitted to see the affidavit, n an therefore do not know the name of the firm comn- a plaining. We have been informed, however, thit the amount of the bill was, in round numbers, $2000. In this connection, as well as in relation to other cases, we shall have something to say hereafter, in regard to recorders' clerks witn holding from representatives of the press public records. The Catholic Counneil. Archbishop Odin, the venerable, learned and 0. exemrlary prelate, who presides over this archi episcopal see, and Bishop Martin, the estimable Bishop of Louisiana, departed on Wednesday lest for Baltimore, to attend the Council of the Cattio- sO lic Church, convened by direction of the Poi e, and over which Archbishop Spalding, of Bacti more, is to preside. This will be the second Council of the Cathdlic Church held on the American continent, and the is deliberations of the body will be of the highest public interest. Among the subjects which, it is understood, will come before the council, will be the condition of the negro, arising from his changed status. The ' imprggement of the race, by intellectual, religious and tMral culture, and its relation to the white population, will be discussed, and doubtless the ability and wisdom usually distmlguishing the con ferences of the church, on- all questions concern ing public order and the peace of nations, will be shown in the conclusions of the influential body that is to pass on these eminently important gqes tions. Unweleome Guests. At a christening ceremony which took place" in 2. a private family, on Union (?) street, in the Fourth District, Thursday evening, the guests assemnbled t were suddenly disturbed by the entrance of a party of rowdies and blackguards, who proceeded to break the plates, furniture, etc., and to ipter ropt the festivities generally. This razzia istsup posed to have been made by a party who go about asking themselves to such entertaintimnts, and who, upon being refused to be allowtid to I dance with the ordinary guests, revenge them selves in this manner. During the melde, a man whose name we have not learned was badly cut in the leg. None of the parties to the above out rage have as yet been discovered. It is ain be hoped that justice will show herself, in giving them their due, as little backward as they have been in attending assemblies to which they were not invited. A Charlvarl. ab Amorous youth looks with a cold and jealous stn eye upon the espousals of beauty and age, and O( when Cupid's arrows have been tipped with gold, of the unsuccessful rivals sometimes attempt to ex- lo act from happy Dives a tax in kind. This, we in believe, is the origin and object of charivaris, and lao a marriage on Claiborne street, night before last, re gave its upholders an opportunity to make known au their views. A bachelor, who was accused of being old, di married a young lady who was certainly very cl pretty, and the matter was resented as an affront hb by the young men of the neighborhood who had te been left out in the cold. The sheet-irol band so was revived in honor of the occasion, but the a attempt miscarried, and the entertainmei soont b0 fell through. The police interfered, and sartici- t pants narrowly escaped arrest. o Coroner ,'s In qu ests.| d The coroner held yesterday inquests upon the following bodies: Upon the body of Joseph Darroche. of Ielgium. aged 52 years, found dead at the St. Josceph Ay lum, of consumption. Upon the body of Petit Jacques Augnate, 45 years old, of cholera. I Figaro In Troule. t We recently gazed with some curiosity and pity I at a queer looking stranger, with a foreisn make up, whom we saw a day or two since, just arrived I in this city, and the contents of whose pockets amounted to a pair of curling and pressing irons. 1 He was arrested and carried to the Third District Recorder's Court, upon tie charge of vagrancy, and his generally disordered appearancee and swollen face served to confirnm the chirge. He had been taken in the act of going fromn door to I door, and had been too intoxicated, or sltoke Eng lish too badly, to give a good account of his ob ject, and in consequence his visits had brought him to grief. He was ordered to the loskup, and requested to hand in his irons. There ans some thing rather pathetic in the way he redeived the order. "He hesitated a moment, shrugged his (lt shloulders, as much as to say that he had lost eerything else-what was the use of trying to held on to them?-aud then quietly followed tlie officer in charge. But on this trialyesterday he showed that he had p been assaulted and pretty badly used up immedi ately upon his arrival; that lie had imbibed too much in consequence, and that while going from house to house to get custom, as is usual in his eative country, his motives had been nlisunder- D stood. His plea was so successful that his case vas dismissed and his irons restored, and for his sake, we hope that corkscrew tresses will become still more common than they are even at present u pon ourstreets. Various Items. Among the late appointments made by the C mayor to the police is one deserving special notice. We refer to the appointment of Lieutenant John .roley, who, in consequence of wounds received luring the war, is unable to follow any of the ordinary avocations of life. He was an officer of the Eleventh Louisiana, at the battle of Belmont, and lost a hand there. Though thus disabled he refused to leave the service, and, being with his regiment at the battle of Shiloh, he lost on that day, all of his remaining hand but a thumb. In this crippled condition the gallant gentleman is of course unfit for ordinary police duty, hbut Recorder a AAhern has found a place in his office, in which the lieutenant can render services to the public ade quate to the compensation he receives. The house of Mr. McDonell, at No. 166 Esplan.- ' ade street, was entered night before last and robbed of a fine saddle. The alarm of fire between eleven and twelve o'clock yesterday was caused by sparks falling from the chimney on the roof of the house No. l1 Annunciation street, and setting fire to the shingles. The flames were extinguished without damage of consequence to the premises. About the same hour the burning of a chimney on Franklia street brought out the fire depart ment without occasion for their services. Mortuary Reporwts..

R Sonora in Possession of the Liberals. THE BATTLE NEAR MAZATLAN. SAN FRANCISco, Sept. 29.-News from Mazat lan. Mexico, is to the effect that the Imperialists a and the men of war had left ouayamas to the t Liberals. f A fight had occurred near Mazatlan. The French lost three hundred and the Liberals two a hundred and fifty in killed and wounded. The garrison of Imperialists at Urez was cut to pieces on the fourth instant by Martinez, no quar- e ter being shown. Gen. Lamberg, an Austrian commander, was e killed in an engagement at Guadaloupe, on the s ame dayv. Mazatlan would probably be evacuated by the s e French in October. Sonora was in undisturbed possession by the I Liberals. SSa. FRaNcisco, Sept. 29.-A letter received e here, dated September 21, giving an account of Corona's recent operations at Palos Pintos, near Mazatlan, says seven hundred and fifty men, under I the command of Colonels Grenadie and Marti nez, attacked the French position from the rear, dismounting one piece of artillery and exploding 1 the Imperialists' magazine. The French, thus cut I off from Mazatlan, made two desperate charges, under Captain Delata,. and succeeded in rescuing their cannon. An imperial battalidn called Cassadores soon after arrived, and drove off the Liberal forces. Both parties exhibited the utmost bravery. Especial praise is awarded to Capt. Delatka for his obstinate defense. GREAT STORM OFF NEWFOUNDLAND 4 SHIPWRECKS---G(REAT LOSS OF LIFE. T NEWFOUNDLAND TELEGRAPHIC LINES STILL DOWN, Fer cor PonT-ar-BasgUE, N.

Several coasters were wrecked, and over one hundred and fifty dead bodies were picked up at St. Pierre on INI Sunday, of persons lost from different vessels. No further particulars. Asrr BAY, September 28.-There are as yet no H1 advices from Europe by the cable. The New foundland lines are still prostrated, but we learn that communication is expected every hour to be restored. Not many persons understand that the lines in Newfoundland pass throughadenseforest, and in one case for a continuous distance of two hundred and fifty miles. Stations are established every fifty miles, and in case of a freshet it becomes fail necesgary inumaking repairs, to make a detour of suc fifty miles into the interior to get across the swol len streams.

Stevens reas that Delpreelation of 8 lie the Secnrliles Must Follow the 1 a- Pi reslaent's Polley. New YORK, September 23.-General Santa for Anna hus addressed a reply to Minister Romero, in which he takes the leaders of the present re sng publican government in Mexico to task for re fusing to receive his services against the empire. his Hte declares that their refusal will not doter him - from doinghis best in'behalf of his country. Itow oce he means to do this and will preserve harmony on- among the defenders of the republic, as he avers rel, Ind himself anxious to do, is not stated. Thad. Stevens, in reply to a letter askiang what effect the success of the President's policy would have on national seoerities, says: 'In answer to your inquiry, ' what effect the President's views citj will have on the national securities?' I am of the pat opinion that its effect would be very injurioas tie The President contends that the body of men act- a h ing as a Congress has no constitational power, and are can do no valid acts in the absence of the exclad- ist ed States. The Congress that anth9rizsd the war HI debt, and lard the internal duties to pay it, were composed of precisely the same number of bor representatives from the osme itates as the present. If it should be decided That these Con I gresse had no constitutlonal existence, then the 5-20's,10-40's and 7-30's, and the legal tendergreen- e backs, will have been issued without authority, (t and would be worthless. Whethef they w.ald bD ever "be redeemed would depend on what the President would consider a cons.tttional Congress ar after the admission of the rebel representatites, Sa when the condition of the debts of bothbellige- 4S rents would be considered." en sts REVENUE CUTTERS TO BE SOLD;--OTERS. TO BE BUILT, be CHOLERA IN MEIEPHIS. w ------ J1 WAsonrsToo, Sept. 28.-Congress, at the late session, authorized the secretary of the treasury as to sell such of the revenue cutters as are not adapted to the service. T The department will, accordingly, soon dispose s at public sale, of six of the steamers, which were I being built in a manner more suited for war than y for civil service. There will then remain nineteen revenue b, steamers, six of which are on the lakes, and nine ei sailing vessels. - The number of the latter is to be increased by rs eight, proposals for the building of which have rs been invited. Sailing vessels only are to be oi -s employed where they can render the requisite cl service, while their use will very materially de crease the expenses; as bets-een them and r steamers. fs The receipts of customs at the ports of Boston, c. c New York and Baltimore, for the week ending September 22d, were as follows: Boston $311,- v 000 71.

Governor of Tean : The memorial of the untdesigned, citizens of r the town of Brenham, in the gounty of Washing ton, and State of Texas, respectfully shows: That on the night of the 7th inst., a large amount of property, situated In Brenham, owned Ohs by them, the description and ralue of which will on be found in the annexed stote;nent, was fired and no utterly destroyed by a party of federal soldiers stationed here. Your memorialists show thii act of incendiarism was done not by irresponsible privates alone, hut 4 with the full knowledge, acd vs your memorialists hs believe, by the- express orders of the federal m officer commanding the troop, and the post; and that since its. ommisaio he has justified the act in retaliation, as he alleges, or an assault upon at some of his-men by other citizens of Brenha.m re and your memorialists show that this officer has W taken no steps for the arrest ar'punishment of the so offenders, . Yosr memoriallsts show that they are law abid- t n citizena,deply interested in the stability of is the government,candin the puace and quiet of the th communty:in which they olive that they were in nowise concbrned in the alleged assaultl upon the federal soldiers, and than they had uttered no 1 word and done no art to pro-oke this vwanton de- di struction of property. " Wherefore, your memoriavlets request yEpr ex- f cellency to lay the matter Ibefore thehonorable d 1 legislature now in session., With the view to ob- t tltaing an investigation of the facts connected sW with the destruction of thed property, that they nmay be presented in the au1hetic and authorita- w Live form to his excellency, the President of the'l m United States, in order talin they may obtain re- it dress for the destruction a1' their property, and f the community for the outra!ge which it has sus t tained, i J.
