We are indebted to Hon. J. Hawkins,
reporter of the decisions of the supreme
court of this state, for pamphlets numbered
one and two of the nineteenth volume of
the Louisiana annual reports. These num
bers, just published by Bloomfield A Steel,
bear evidence of excellent mechanical
work. The labor of Judge Hawkins has
been performed in a manner highly credit
able to his legal ability and capa
city for getting at the gist of deci
sions, and shows that he has devoted
more than usual care and discrimination to
the important task ot reporting the decis
ions of our highest Btate court. Many of the
decisions contained in these numbers are on
very interesting and highly important
questions growing out of our anamolous
position after the rebellion. No lawyer
should be without them. The best time to
read regal works and keep up the study of
the reports is during the dull summer
seoBtus, when the courts are closed for
active business life.

Mr. Controller Mandeljias appointed Mt.

Ailed the position he has just been appoint
ed for about a year at the time when Mr.
Howell was controller. He will make a
good and capable official, and Mr. Mandel
may be congratulated on the selection.

THE PUBLIC SCHOOL QUESTION.
It was announced in the yesterday's
| evening edition of the Republican that
General Sheridan had under consideration
the school board question, and was ex
pected to issue an order upon the subject
soon. Before taking any decisive action,
however, the general desired a certified
copy oi the resolution oi the common
council removing the old board. But thi
could not be had yesterday from the fact
that Mr. Hepp, president of the board o!
assistant aldermen, refused to sign it.
Probably fir. Hepp deems that it never
legally passed the board of assistant
aldermen, because it did not receive
two-thirds of the votes of the
members. But as presiding offi
cer he should, it seems to us, have
raised this point on its passage, before it
iSas sent to the board of aldeimen for con
currence. it is certainly ail unusual course
tor a presiding officer to take to let a
measure pass quietly until it reaches
the ordinary stages required by law
for its perfection, and then under
preiense of having failed in Us duty, ar
rest it ou the ground ot intormality. As
we cannot find any precedent for such a
course, we are not prepared at this time to
say what will be the legal effect it may have
on the question. But the practical effect
will be to delay the organization of
the new board unless General Sheridan
takes the matter up and dismisses all the
members ot the old board and appoints a
new one. composed either of those selected
by the council, or of such men as he him
self may select. It may be contended that
if the old board was not legally removed
the new one was not properly elected, so the
same power necessary to remove the pres
ent incumbents should be invoked in ap
pointing new members. The general
might accept of the action of the council
on Tuesday night as a recommendatory
measure, and appoint such of the members
then presented as directors who may have
since accepted the trust and qualified, and
fill the vacancies arising Irom non-resi
dence or relusal to serve from among citi
zens qualified for the position. As the
time appointed lor the opening of the pub
lic schools. Monday next, is near af hand,
it is desirable that the question should be
settled to-day. it will be a short, simple,
and effective way of settling the matter, and
will be the most authoritative manner that
can be devised in time to prevent future
complications.
We hope the general will be able to find
time in the midst of other pressing duties
to reach the matter to-day, and set it at
rest by his supreme power.
PROSCRIPTION OF BUSINESS MEN.
PROSCRIPTION OF BUSINESS MEN.
The New York Times says: A Nashville
e<litor calls upon his readers to resolve with
him. that, "come weal or woe, we will not
buy a cent's worth of goods from a Radical
merchant," or get "our boots from a Radi
cal shoemaker, employ a Radical mechanic,
ride in a Radical hack,'* or patronize a Rad
ical teacher," a "Radical church," or any
thing else that is Radical. We New-Yorkers
can give a word of comfort at this juncture,
to the Tennessee merchants, cobblers, lmck
drivers, and domiuos about to be deserted
of customers. Some years ago, a
Georgian came north, and made
"blacklist" of merchants with whom
southerners were not to trade. The firm
that thereupon lost southern custom thought
this was rather hard, though their rivals
who sold all the more, regarded it as ex
ceedingly just. It was not many months
before the tables were turned. Before most
of the bills had become due, the south had
seceded and the bills "seceded" too, and
the men on the black list had the luugh
against their smart competitors, who had
been found politically 'sound enough
ide with. The Nashville editors, as w
trade _ __________
as the Nashville citizens who say what they
mean and vote as they think, will do well to
take this lesson to heart.
This pretended proscription of business
men is seldom carried to any practical ex
tent. The leaders and actors in such move
ments are usually men who have not the
means to make purchases, and can only
obtain credit of northern merchants through
the influence of the pressure of some such
scheme as that resorted to by the Georgia
merchant above alluded to. lly deceiving
the merchant with false statements of ex
tensive influence with his neighbors, and
the consequent increase of patronage to be
derived from his recommendation, it some
times happens that young business men
in New York and other commercial centres
are sometimes victimized by southern
sharpers. But it seldom happens that the
old and experienced merchants bite at such
a bait.
In the winter of 1854, there was a meet
ing of small retail dealers in Memphis for
the purpose of ruining the merchants of
Cincinnati, in consequence of some politi
cal proceedings in the latter city distaste
ful to the chivalry, at which resolutions
were adopted agreeing to buy no more
goods from Cincinnati merchants. The
only perceptible result of this meeting
was the large increase of shipments by the
next packet. Every man supposed the
agreement would be respected by every
body but himself, and that there would be
a temporary scarcity, and consequent ad
vance oi prices. So all orders were
doubled, and it required two steamboats
to bring down the goods. We beard no
more "of mercantile proscription in Mem
phis for some years after that failure.
TRAVELING. FEVER, ETC.
Travel to and from the Crescent city
cannot be called bvisk during these dog
days, when fever is somewhat abroad in the
land, If not epidemic in certain places.
Yet there are some who are always on the
move, and the registers of the St. Charles
and other New Orleans hotels show daily
arrivals of a dozen or so at each of these
establishments. They are mostly from
(he adjoining parishes and f^pm southern
states, but each day, shows some also from
Tennessee, Kentucky, Illinois, and even
from Michigan, while New York—active,
energetic, omnipresent New York—always
figures on the hotel arrivals in spite of
fever. 4 , G. S. A." may also generally be
seen daily opposite the name of some guest
at the City or other hotel, for Uncle Sam
has little regard fen the damage to which
his military servants may be exposed, of
whatever nature it may be.
Were it not for the quarantine esUb
is ied which cuts off Texas and other west
ern travel, a much more lively Ume would
be noted at the hotels. Our own citizens
are enjoying themselves at the neighboring
watering places as usual during tho boated
term, the number going and coming only
being limited by the number and size of
the steame rs to carry them.
POLITICAL kamok.
The Monroe Telegraph has, we regret to
observe, departed from the ordinary course
of fair discussion of political principles and
adopted a stylo of personal attack upon its
opponents which the southern press, as a
rule, have long since laid aside.
When General Sheridan selected registrars
of voters for Louisiana, he was compelled
by circumstances of a peculiar nature to
make most of the selections from among the
citizens of New Orleans. Among those se
lected to go to Ouachita parish was Mr. An
sel Edwards, an old resident, well and favor
ably known to a wide circle of friends in
this city, and although a thorough Union
man anti an earnest Republican, respected
by his political opponents. When Mr. Ed
wards went to Monroe he carried with him
his political principles, and as he deemed
them to be founded upon justice to all men
he never took any pains to conceal them.
But entertaining and promulgating these
principles in Monroe greatly incensed some
of the leaders of th< opposition at that place,
and they have tried on several occasions to
place the object of their hatred in a dis
graceful position before the country. The
editor of the Telegraph who is supposed to
be one of the leading men of the opposition
party at Monroe lent his columns for the
publication of everything that it was
thought would bring Mr. Edwards, the
board of registrars, General Sheridan, the
laws of congress, and the Union, into con
tempt. About three weeks ago, the Tele
graph published a statem- nt to the effect
that Mr. Edwards "one of General Sheri
dan V registrars" under the reconstruction
laws, had been detected in an act of petty
larceny—stealing apples from Mr. Hart,
a resident of Monroe, that Mr. Hart's
nephew had caught him in the act. This
statement, if it had been confined to the
Telegraph w ould hardly be worth un allu
sion in the Republican, but it is a matter of
rogret to us that our contemporary the New
Orleans lice, which is a fair and just journal
as a rule, and one that rarely gives place
for personal attacks upon political oppo
nents, published this statement from the
Monroe paper, thus bringing the case, or one
side of it, to the attention of people who
would not be likely to hear the other or true
story. The facts of the alleged larceny are
briefly these:
Mr. Hart, who seems to be a worthy and
hospitable gentleman, told Captain Merritt
and Mr. Edwards, in the presence of sev
eral respectable citizens of Monroe, that
whenever they desired to do so they had
his permission to walk through his orchard
and cat as much fruit as they wished. That
Mr. Edwards availed himself of the polite
offer of Mr. Hart, passing into the premises
at one gate and out at another, near
which Mr. Lock, Mr. Hart's nephew, was
standing. Mr. Edwards explained to Mr.
Lock that he was there by his uncle's
permission, to which Mr. Lock responded
all right," and both gentlemen passed on.
Out of this little circumstance the alleged
larceny charge was made by the Telegraph,
Mr. Hart says he knew nothing of it until
he read it in that paper.
We hope the liee will do a worthy man
the justice to publish a short explanation of
this case.
The Dryades market heretofore paid the
city $.'>0,000 per annum when farmed out.
it was contracted for at that rate last winter;
but the city wishing to change this, bought
back the contract, and appointed one James
Boggs its agent to receive the market rents.
To show how fast the city can lose money,
or how rapidly some people can accumu
late, it is only necessary to add the lollow
ing facts: The mayor received yesterday
the statment that the city agent, Bcggs,
returns to the city treasurer for the above
named market rents for the ICO days,
from March 11 to August 17, inclusive,
$8,037 10 less $511 15, his five per cent,
commission ou the same. Now, at $30,000
per annum—allowing no profit to him who
farms the market—the 100 days should
have produced $13,150 and over, instead of
$8,037 10. Besides, the market always pays
a better rent at the season of the year of
which this 100 days formed a part. Is it
not accumulating a fortune at the city's
expense rather fast, to thus obtain $4513 of
gains that should goto her in five and a
third months? So the mayor thinks;
and he accordingly sent an agent yesterday
to relieve Mr. Boggs. But the latter
gentleman is not satisfied with the small
amount from the city teat, and refused to
be relieved. Rather than be arrested this
morning, and held to account for his afore
said action, he may think better of it and
gracefully retire. We have said nothing of
his informal way of reporting to the city
treasurer, and deducting his commission,
instead of through the controller and
drawing his warrant upon the treasurer for
his commission* But these are loose times,
they are "out of joint."
Can the city stand such salaries as this to
its agents? Here is one man—a mere
receiver of the city's dues from the rents of
a single market, pocketing nearly the salary
of the president of the United States. For,
though the amount of his income above
given is but $4513, and the commission of
$511, making $5024 iu 160 days, which is
$11,461 per annum ; who can doubt his
having received $6000 in that time, making
the per annum proportionately large.
Alabama Poll lie*
The Mobile Daily Times comes to us with
the following announcement at the head of
its editorial column:
UNION CONSERVATIVE TICKET.
IMPARTIAL SUFFRAOI AND GENERAL AMNESTY,
For President of the United States:
GEN. ULYSSES S. GRANT,
OP ILLINOIS.
For Vice-President:
W. P. FESSENDEN,
OP MAINE.
"May we live in perpetual peace and
harmony with that enemy, whose manhood,
however mistaken the cause, drew forth
such herculean deeds of valor."—(General
U rani's final report of the operations of the
tear.)
The Times is edited by Henry St. Paul,
Esq., formerly a member of the New Orleans
bar, and frequently a member of the Louis
iana legislature. He is a gentleman of great
energy of character, and was distinguished
for his fire eating proclivities for several
years previous to the breaking out
of the war. Hi* advocacy of "im
partial suffrage * and of the claims of Gen
eral Orant to the presidency, in conjunction
with Mr. Feanenden for the vice-presidency,
shows a most remaikablc change in his
political sentiments. Mr. St. Paul went out
to the war at the head of one of the first
companies that left this city, and has always
been an earnest partisan of the
secession cause. His writings as an
editor have been consistent with
his known political record. We do not
undertake to say what influence his support
will have upon General Grant's prospects
of success. Our object a*, present is merely
to show the remarkable change tor the bet
ter that has recently come over Henry ^t.
Paul.
Quarantine—N ew Iberlu.
There is no later news from New Iberia
than the evening of the 28 th. Dr. Schmidt,
president of the Howard association, ar
rived from N»'W Iberia last night (20th).
There is no longer need of his services there,
the deaths now amounting to but one or two
a day.
There were a few eac -j Sunday last at a
place below New Iberia called Indian Bend.
All who did not die left, f-o that finished the
matter.
There were no cases further down on the
Teche, and it was quite healthy at Franklin
on the 28th.
There are a few cases on the ?-teamers
quarantined at Brashear city; but as there
are few people there, it is not probable any
spread will take place, the steamers being
isolated.
Parties coming to New Orleans from tho
direction of New Iberia have to take oath
at Brashear that they have not
been at New Iberia within sixteen
days. This is but a loss cf twenty-five cents
to each of them, and a gain of that amount
to the justice who administers the oath.
To show tho inconsistency amt uselessness of
this, parties from healthy plantations below
Franklin yesterday took the oatli and
paid the tribute, while others from New
Iberia and its neighborhood passed without
this duty and tribute. Such an order should
be countermanded at once.
Reorganization of the Quurlcrma*ler'»
Department.
Quartermaster General D. II. Rucker
issued an order at Washington on the
P'th instant, reorganizing the quarter
master's department, by which Brevet Major
General Charles Thomas j» charged with the
examination of the money accounts of offi
cers in the department, and of all estimates
for public funds. Brevet Brigadier General
James A. Ekin is charged witli transacting
the ordinary business of supplies, regular
and miscellaneous, of the quartermaster
department, excepting clothing and equip
age, and for barrack \ and quarters, and
will have charge of all claims presented
to the quartermaster general for such sup
plies. Brigadier General Alexander Perry
has charge of garrison and camp equipage
and property accounts: Brigadier General
James J. David, of transportation and all
duties pertaining to railroad and telegraph
lines operated by the United States, etc.;
Brigadier General Benjamin C. Card is
charged with the care of barracks, hospi
tals, quarters, store-houses, stables, bridges,
cemeteries, etc., and all claims presented
for mileage or transportation of officers.
The Buker'ii Insurrection.
The threatened strike of the bakers
against a revival of the city ordinance reg

the price of flour, reminds U3 of a similar
event which occurred in times gone by, and
the remedy which the occasion suggested.

The Bay of Sananu.
It is well known that negotiations have
for some time been going on between
our government and the government of
St. Domingo, with a view to our acquiring
for the purposes of a naval station the large
and beautiful bay of Samana. At a co*t of
five milions of dollars the bay, with five
miles of laud on the circumjacent Bhore, is
at last to become the property of the United
States. The bay is forty-three miles in
length from east to west, about eight miles
broad, and forms one of the finest harbors
in the world. In a military and commer
cial point of view the acquisition is most
important. Considering the growing im
portance of our relations with Central
America, its value as a naval station is not
to be over-estimated.
From Lafourche.
A letter from a correspondent at Thibo
deaux gives ns a cheering account of the
progress of political affairs in Lafourche
parish. He concludes a business letter to
the office thus:
P. S. I have been so busy of late that I
have not had time to write yon on the situa
tion In this parish. I take great pleasure in
telling you the Republican party is fully
organized up here, and my impression is
that if their candidates for delegates to the
convention are well chosen they will be
elected by very large majorities. In the
meantime I am not idle by any means, if
you do not hear from me often.

The committee was called to order by
Hon. O. J. Dunn.
The secretary called the roll. A quorum
present.
The minntes of the previous meeting were

rules, and that the committee proceed with
the unfinished business.
The secretary proceeded to the reading of
Mr. Crane's resolution, presented at last
meeting.
Mr. Crane moved the adoption of the res
olution.
Hon. E. Belden, in an eloquent speech,
favored the plan of the election of delegates
by conventions as the only safeguard, and
preventing discontentment among the ward
clubs, because if any ward should not be
represented it would run an Independent
ticket and, perhaps, cause the defeat of the
party. He strongly opposed allowing others
but enrolled members to vote.
Csptain Sauvinet moved that no member
of the Central Executive committee be a
delegate to the convention.
A motion to lay the resolution on the
table was lost.
Mr. Pemberton moved that the resolution
of Captain Sauvinet be ruled out of order.
Lost.
The committee refused to lay the resolu

Ayes 17, nays 25.
A motion to adjourn was lost.
Mr. Mushaway moved the adoption of
Mr. Crane's resolution, and called for the
previous question.
The previous question being ordered by

The resolntion of Mr. Crane was adopted
by the following vote: Ayes 37, nays 26.
Mr. Crane moved for the reconalderation

A motion to adjourn was lost.
The question to lay on the table was lost
