Washington, March 28.—In the cise of
Bigelow versus DeForrest, to obtain po -
sessiou of lands sold under the confiscation
act, suit is brought by the heirs ot the for
mer owners. The case comes from Virginia
on an application to remove from tbe Htate
to the federal court. The Supreme Court
decides that the law of 18C3 provides only
for personal, not real estate cases, but oa the
merits of this case says, that the sale under
confiscation affects the title only during the
life of the owner, upou whose death the title
descends as though there bad besn no con
fiscation sale.

subjects: The interior ports of entry;
the creation of a department of commerce;
the civil service bill, and American shipping
interests.
In response to the matters s ated, the

copies have been sent by Minister Delony
for the relatives of those who are lost on the
Oneida.
The court in its decision says, alluding to
Captain Eyre: "VVe recognize the fact that
he was placed in a position of great diffi
culty and doubt, and in circumstances under
which he was called upon to decide prompt
ly; but we regret to have to record it ae our
opinion that be acted hastily and ill-advised
ly in that instead of waiting and endeavor
ing to render assistance to the Oneida, he,
without having reason to believe that his
own vessel was in a perilous position, pro
ceeded on his voyage. This conduct con
stitutes, in our opinon, a breach o( the thirty
third section of sixty-third chapter of the
merchant shipping act amendment of 1862;
and we therefore feel called upon to sus
pend Mr. Eyre's certificate for six calendar
months from this date,
Th 6 evidence of many of those who tes
tified produces thrilling details of the
disaster, the substance of which has been
previously published.

The conservative members are out in an
address to the peopl--, alluding to the Gov
ernor's declaring Alamance county in insur
rection, and asking for a suspension of the
habeas corpus act.
The address recites as follows: The Chief
Magistrate of this State, the head and front
of radicalism, has seen til to declare one of
our counties in a state of in-urr-'Ciion and
to call upon CoDgress to su-pend ihe writ of
habeas corpus throughout the State. We
declare that there is not sufficient cause for
this extraordinary action of Governor
Holden, as there is, and has been, ao armed
resistance ; no uprising of the peop e: no
outbreaks to disturb or hinder the full ad
ministration of the civil law.
We assert that there is not R county in tho
State to whictiany Sheriff or other p- :-.e - offi
cer may not go unattended and with perfect
safety, aud execute any process upon any
citizen of the State. It is true that mur
ders and other outrages ha e be n c u
mitted, but they h ave not be a confined to
any particular}* locality, or suv political

Chicago, March 28.—Governur Palmer, in
reply to a letter from the Hon. Cassius M.
Clay, asking him to acc-pt the position of
vice-president of the Caban Aid Society of
New York, says lie does not consider it con
sistent with the public duty of a Gov
ernor of one of the United States to aid
the Cuban insurrection against the au
thority of a government with which we are
at peace; and further, he has no evidence
that the so-called patriotic party in Cuba
has decreed the abolition of slavery, and
the fact that their leader, General Jordan,
who was four years in arms against our free
government to perpetuate slavery, affords
no satisfactory evidence of such an inten
tion. He is, therefore, unwilling to assist
them or to ask others to do so.

The Pay «f (he City Ichoo! Teaehert.
Editor Republican:
I wish to eay, through your generous
journal, -hat nothing has caused me greater
pain within the past year; than the manner
in which the present Democratic School
Board of this city has treated the school
teachers in its employ. I am informed by
many of this class, that for six months they
have not received a cent of pay. So lar as
my authority extends, I am determined that
these teachers—the moat useful and devoted
of all public servants—shall be paid all
arrears due them, as soon as possible; sot
in warrants to be discounted by brokers at
ruinous rates, but in current funds; and, as
to the future, when the new Boards have
toe direction of schools, tt» see that the
teachers are paid faithfully and promptly.
Much is said about the features of the
new school law, on the question of " mixed
schools," and, as to the future of the present
schools of New Orleans and other places in
the State.
On these points the officers and teachers
having charge of the schools have but one
duty, and that is to obey the law aad enforce
the oonstitu'.ion of the State.
It is my opinion that with prudence and
a generous treatment of the questions in
volved, we will have far less trouble than is
anticipated.

TU£ COURTS.
Supreme Coart of* 4 .oal*Iana— The Act*
of a Co&fetltsroie BheritTRecoicnlzed a*
Legal*
The following decision was rendered yes
terday by Justice Howe:
William Sadler vs. William D. Gayle—E.
O. Gayle, Administrator.—The plaintiff
e aima of the defendant a sum of money
received by him as Sheriff', on an execution
in the suit of Sadler vs. Crawford. The de
fense is a general denial, and the averments
that the defendant was not the legal Sheriff
at the time, and that the sum recovered was
in 'Confederate treasury notes. There is an
admission in the record that the defendant
was the Sheriff at the date (January, 1862)
when he received the money claimed, and
as the necessities and interests of society
required such an officer during the late war,
his official acts must be recognized as legal.
The evidence does not sustain the ether
grounds of defense. Iu November, ISG0,
the money was mado by Sheriff Norwood,
under an execution in the above named suit
of Sadler vs. Crawford, and on tbe second
of January, 1862, be turned the writ and 'he
money over to his successoV, the defendant,
who gave his receipt as sheriff, tor the
amount in dollars, without qualification, ae
indeed he could only have done. He is
liable therefore for the money. Judgment
affirmed.

State ex rel. Joseph Hanlon vs. James
Graham, Auditor.—In this case the petition
sets forth that the State of Louisiana is in
debted to him in the sum of #1355 40 for
costs of court incurred in tbe institution of
a large number of suits against delinquent
taxpayers by F. C. Mahan, State T ix Col
lector, which the defendant refuses to pay.
Petitioner prays that a mandamus be issued
directing the Auditor to issue a warrant on
the State Treasurer forthe amount claimed.
The Attorney General files an answer to
the effect that the State i 3 in no manner
liable for the amount claimed, as the costs ' 1
incurred were unauthorized and excessive.
Also, that if any amount is found to be due
the Auditor is unable to issue a warrant for
the same, as no appropriation has been
made to meet it. Detendant asks that the
suit be dismissed,
TbtEltflrt.lt ItbtrlctCoorl—II 1* Jfttliled
nut to tte it Court
C. M. Freret vs. tno Southern Baek—In
this case, Judge Cooley, ol tho.Sixih District
Court, yesterday delivered a lengthy opin
ion, that would occupy about three col
umns, which we coudense, as follows:
Defendant in this case has asked,that it
be transferred to a tribunal styled the
Eighth District Court for tne parish of Oi
lcans.
The ground taken is tnat this is an injunc
tion suit, and that the Sixth District Court
has been divested of its jurisdiction by the
act creating the Eighth District C^urt. Til's
act does not exclude, in my opinion, the
jurisdiction of this court in cases of this na
ture. Under the terms of the sixth section
of the act of March 1C, 1870, thie court has
the same powers as that granted to the
Eighth District Court. The jurisdiction of
the seven District Courts is conferred by the
constitution of 1868, aud the Legislature has
no power tc impair that jurisdiction. The
graut of specific powers by thO'constituticn
to the different departments of the govern
ment makes them independent of each
other. *
The Judge,>in the course of his argument,
says: "Under the constitution this (the
sixth) court Las the power to give to suitors
the benefits afforded by these (the seven
district) courts, and so long as the legisla
tive power recognizes their existence as
legal remedies, it can not deprive ibis court
of the power of issuing tii-m, by investing'
another coart with the right, exclusively, to
use them.
By the constitution of 1868, the people of
Louisiana reserved to themselves the right
of selecting the judges aud clerks ot the dis
trict courts, and except in case of a vacancy
no other power but the people at the ballot
box can make a judge or clerk iu Louisiana.
Tho Supreme Court of the State, in the case
ot Kreider et als., arising in the town of
Jefferson, laid down the correct doctrine to
the effect that the Governor could only
appoint in case of vacancy; aud that the
failure to hold au election did not create a
vacancy.
A]f ortiori, it can not be said there is a
vacancy in the office of Jndge of the Eighth
Court, for the simple reason that nobody
ever occupied it, it being a recent creation.
I consider the act in question as a mon
strosity, not only in point of its unconstitn
tiouality, but in almost every other respect.
The pretence of reorganizing seven courts
and only mentioning six, leaving the crim
inal court in the cold of death, is quite sug
gestive of the haste with which it was writ
ten aud passed.
Its language it singularly ambiguoris and
contradictory; indeed, some passages are so
contradictory with each other as to leave
the mind in donbt as to whether it was cot
the serious intention of the author of the
bill that it should produce an effect the very
reverse of that which its title indicates. For
these rea-ots I have declined to enter the
order to transfer this cause to the so-called
Eighth District Court.
Death of X*lerre Funic—Action of the
Conrt*.
Yesterday, in the Supreme Court, after
the reading of the decisions pre
pared for the day, tbe Hon. Christian
Roselius announced the death ot Pierre
Soule, the giited orator and advo
cate, who expired in this,city, on Saturday,
the twenty-six'h instant. Mr. Roselins
made a few remarks, snd suegested that the
court adjourn in commemoration of the
f-olemn eveDt. Chief Justice Lndeling ac
cordingly ordered an adjournment until
to-morrow at eleven o'clock.
In the Eighth District Conrt, Colonel C.
A. Breaux made the announcement, in a few
feeling and eloquent remarks. In the Third
District Court remarks were made by It. J.
Kerr, E-;q; in the Fourth by William H.
Hunt, and in the Fifth by Judge Leanmont.
i'he other courts took ap-propriate action,
and all adjourned.
Destruction by Fire of the tied Jltvrr
Ducket Jefferson.
The limes of last evening says:
By the arrival here this morning of the
Ouachita River packet Governor Allen, we
learn that the R°d River packet Jefferson,
Captain George W. Rea, caught fire inoue of
her tiers of cotton on the larboard guard,
on Sunnay morning, between the hours of
nine and ten o'clock, one mile above the
mouth of Black River, or Red River, and,
notwithstanding the untiring eff ) ts of the
passengers and crew, the boat and cargo of
eight hundred and thirty-five bales (less
about twenty five or thirty) soon became a
total loss. As soon as the fire was discov
ered, which was occasioned by a spark from
the chimney (as it could not be accounted
for in any other way), the crew commenced
throwing overboard the top tiers of cot
ton, aud partialiv succeeded for a
time in subduing the flames, and while
thus engaged the fire broke out afresh.
When this took place, the only thing left
to do was.to run her to the bank, which the
pilot succeede-d iu doing, and the officers,
crew aud passengers all managed to get off.
There were no lives lost. A "portion of tbe
passengers' baggage, aud some of the offi
cers' effects were lost. The steamer Walter
B. Dance, a St. Louis and Red River packet,
was passing at the time of tbe fire, and took
on board the passengers and crew of the
Jefferson, and brought them to the wharf
boat at the mouth of Red river, where they
embarked for this port on board the steamer
Governor Allen. Ti-.e Jefferson was a new
boat, built expressly for the Red river trade,
aud was in her first season.
Potjipty, it is true, is not a crime; nor
does it necessarily imply that a poor man
musj be a mean man. On the contrary, a
poor man may be a devilish good fellow,
and yet have but a poor way of showing it.
He is hampered aud restricted in his effort^
to do good, and therefore is often pro.
nounced a mean man because his poverty
compels him to appear so. It is not unfre.
quently contended, however, that men are
poor from choice—that when an opportun
ity presents itself, and beckons them on to
fortune, they fail to avail themselves of t'he
chance, and continuing in their old
course, "spend as * they go," to n,o
purpose, but to remain in the siough
of property. They work hard and spend
their money to no advantage; it sOes, they
hardly know how, for trifling articles that
arc of no service, but an actual harm to
them. Much la spent for whisky, tobacco,
and useless games that could be invested in
a way that might lead to riches. Fifty cents
is considered nothing to spend for those
articles. Hard-working men will do this
daily without thinking that their money is
gone, and to n-%purpose, uclegs it is to con
tract very bad habits. How much batter
would it be to invest the money
spent in this way in tickets in tho single
number drawings of the Louisiana State
Lottery, where there are many chances to
become rich. The next drawing will take
place on the second of April. There are
four hundred and fifty prizes in this splen
did scheme. One of *50,000, one of $30,
( 100 , one of $ 20 , 000 , one of $10,000, one of
$9000, one of $8000, one of $7000 one of
$6000, one of $5000, one of $4000, one of
$3000, one of $2000, twenty-five of $1000,
fifty of $500, and three hundred and seven
teen of $200. A few dollars spent in this
way have been known to make men rich.
Are not men poor frofti choice, then, when
they fail to do this? Secure tickets aud
wealth miiy be yours.
The attention of brokers and speculators

The greatest sympathetic and emotional
drama ever written is " East Lynne; or,

Academy last evening witnessed, with the
closest attention, Miss Lucille Western's
Lady Isabel and Madams Vine, two of her
great specialities. The drama will be '"re
peated this evening, and in order to secure
choice seats application should be made
early at the box office.
An old gentleman, who had been too
bibulously inclined, was introduced to a
special policeman la^ evening, at the
Academy, during the performances on the
