Funeral of Capt. Brewer. vas
Capt. Sam. Brewer was buried yesterday. 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
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
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
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.

Sonora in Possession of the Liberals.
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
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.
PonT-ar-BasgUE, N. F., Sept. 28.-A fearful bet
gale of wind prevailed on Saturday last on the aps
Eastern coast of Newfoundland. A great many ac
wrecks are reported.
A French frigate was lost at St. Pierre. 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. The public are unable to understand are
why breaks are not sooner repaired, but one who er
has tried a journey, such as the Newfoundland
woods offer, can readily comprehend the delay. to

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

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

service, while their use will very materially de
crease the expenses; as bets-een them and r
steamers. fs

The following memorial is signed by abont forty wi
leading citizens, and is followed by a statement of thi
losses, which we give : mc
To his execllteny J. W. Thmestmtor5n. 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
