We have seen partially successful trips of the pneumatic powers after the in ventor, Mr. Wailey, had overcome serious difficulties, and now only waits for the com pletion of approved machinery, especially adapted to the purpose. When this is con summated, the public is promised a sensa tion, and mule power a death blow. Dr. Lamm's invention, vaporizing aqua ammonia, although a newer de vice, has so far gained a success which is quite equal to the great expectations of its inventor and his interested friends. Before the doctor was really properly prepared Nvith necessary machinery, he made three experimental trips, each one even more flattering than was expected. Railroad men possessed of mecnanical educations,in theory and practice ,are greatly inclined to think this arrangement will soon permit them to sell off their mules, hay and corn, and har ness, and convert their immense depots into dwellings or hotels. LaBt Friday, Dr. Lamm sent one of his cars out on C anal street to Stake a trial from the depot to Clay statue,and to the ridge and back to the depot. He then demonstrated the capacity of his machine beyond all cavil. His patent combines most of those properties which men have long studied to perfect—speed, cheapness and simplicity. It is claimed that this power can send a car over a firm track faster than steam does, and at far less cost, say about one dollar per day, or less. How ever, we will wait until the patentee shall arrive at some definite conclusion concern ing the daily expenditure. At present, his time and attention are quite completely taken up in experimenting with more in teresting matters, but he feels certain that his plans will supersede all others at pres ent in existence. Afte/ he fashions com plete machinery the test will be made, whether jackass or ammonia shall triumph. The man who succeeds in supplanting horse power will confer a double benefit on the world, receiving the thanks of every hu mane society. Let our citizens rest in pa tience, and they may yet see cars pro pelled by an invisible power, and New Or leans be entitled to a name for other things than murders and lawlessness. Mr. Langdon's device—levers projecting from awheel, turned by cranks, man power at the rear end of the car—attempted to make an experimental trip on Canal street yesterday, but the inventor and pro tempore treasurer of the Pelican Propelling Company was unable to make the thing outstrip a Streak of lightning, or even a sick lad pe destrianating alongside. After moping along about one mile, an ancient bnt ani mated mule was attached, and waltzed up to Clay Statue with the sternwheel car, eliciting many broad grins from those who observed the transaction. But that is nothing, as Mr. Langdon, having noted all deficiencies, may yet apply his ingenuity and bring forth an astonishing combination which will make two hard-working men as good us a mule—on the track. Holders of Pelican stock did not indulge in champagne suppers last night, nor laugh all over their faces, still, they may yet range on Caronde let street, glorying in fat pockets stuffed with the scrip. There are several other opponents to mule power who have splendid inventions on paper. Ex General Beauregard is proprie tor of a patent, and some of his admirers, months ago, almost shed tears over the ut ter worthlessness of horses and-mules, as soon as the invention should be practically applied. But the application don't come. Some one else, to us unknown, isjstriving to utilize the pendulum to propel cars, the only misfortune in this affair being that it will not move a car an inch, even when four stout men expend their strongest muscles ; otherwise the plan is successful. JSe, sincerely hope, at no distant day, to view all these appliances in complete opera tion, wishing the patentees full purses to recompense their ingenuity. Before Recorder Houghton.— Daniel McCrea, wishing to rise in the world with ease, confiscated some wagon springs, property of Matthew Ward. The latter sprung the law on accused, which sends him before a jury. . James Wildey, examined on the long charge, accepted a card which entitles him to a residence of three months in the W ork house. This is rather rough on James, who is a young man of considerable capacity, and if not disturbed by policemen might have worried cash out of many a ,pocket during the present summer. He had better never have heard of the man who induced him to come here. Martha Daniels is not as pretty as a pink, nor as pure as snow, but it is said she is an adept in the panel game in her den on Dryades street. A stranger was robbed of nearly six hundred dollars in her trap a few days ago by one of her snipes, which caused Martha's arrest as an accessory before and after the disagreeable fact. She will have a hearing on the eleventh. Bridget Fury, the gentle maiden with golden tresses, whose temper occasionally bubbles up to the boiling point, was in vited to pay a fine of twenty-five dollars, and she liquidated. Habeas Corpus Dodge in the Criminal Court — Judge Abell Sustains llecorder Staes.—'Sot many days ago Recorder Staes consigned the notorious Jack Killen to the Workhouse as a vagrant and a bad character generally. Jack is regarded as anything but a sardine, by those who are competent to speak, and as he has for years defied all law and prisons, it was thought that the Workhouse would not be his hotel many hours. He has a love for Latin phrases, although not a linguist, and he can talk about habeas corpus against time; he knows all about it, or thought he did, until yester day, when Judge Abell read him a new lesson, which rather surprised the Jack and bis attorneys, who had applied for a release on that convenient writ. Counsel on both aides went over a great deal of law-gronnd, and dieplayed much legal lore, but the applicants failed to im presa the court that Recorder Staea had done a wrong in committing ac cused to the Workhouse. The prisoner was remanded, for which Judges Abell and Staea have the thanks of this com munity. This action in the Criminal Court gives a quietus to those fellows committed to prison on the long charge, and will frighten those who should be playing checkers with their noses behind an iron chess-board. Other Recorders may now gather backbone, and soon rid our city of a majority of the worst thieves. The opening of the pavilion andj com mencement of the musical season at the Washington House, Lake Pontchartrain, took place yesterday. The musical instru ments and the railroad cars will be kept going every night until twelve o'clock during the warm season. ; a A Wbetch.— A person having no fear of a hereafter was so mean as to steal nine valuable dollars and a^unch of keys from Fanny Sweet Hinckly, while she was suffer ing on a bed of sickness at the corner of Gasquet and Basin streets, last evening. Although she has strong suspicion as to who the transgressor is, the law officers have failed to ferret him or her out. Criminal Court.— George Wilson, who, on the eleventh of April, aesaulted Mrs. E. Kenner, $40 or one month in Parish Prison. Charles T. Todd pleaded guilty to an assault and battery. $40 or one month in Parish Prison. Lizzie Roll, convicted of larceny, was sent to the Parish Prison for six months. The motion on behalf of George Fritz, convicted of larceny, for a new trial was overruled, and a motion for the arrest of judgment filed-_ Thought he was an Opossum.— Boston Williams, or a pot hunter who uses that name, yesterday called on Captain Lewis, fifth precinct station, and voluntarily in formed that officer that he had, through a slight mistake, shot a man under the belief that he had a bead on a fat coon. A patrol man was sent to the place indicated, Gen tilly Road, and found Charles Finley bleed iDg at every pore in the shade of a tree, Charles, a laborer on the great CJiattanooga railroad was apparently aware that he had been wounded, but was not precisely able to explain how or why. One story is that Fin ley expired from loss of blood ; another is that his wounds are slight. Boston was in carcerated. The John Brown Pioneer Republican Clu b and Protective Association (Third Ward), will hold a mass meeting to-morrow (Mon day) evening, at Zion M. E. Church, on Johnson street, between Perdido and Gra vier streets. The exercises commence at eight o'clock. The church will be decorated for the occasion, and in addition to the emi nent speakers engaged, a fine vocal quartette will give some of their choicest new Repub lican songs, beats will be reserved for the ladles, who are also cordially invited. The Bakbakin and Dufas Gas.— Last evening, the office of the Hope Insurance Company was lighted up by gas made by the apparatus of the above named gentle men, and the result was highly satisfactory to all who saw it. The machine in use is calculated for sixteen 4/rgaud burners, all of which were in full blast, and the light was pronounced to be much better than that made by the City Company, being whiter and BOfter and with greater illuminating power. No one who saw this experiment can doubt the success of the invention hereafter, and we hope to see the machine generally in use. "A Friend in Need."-C Christening a Hose Carriage.— Several weeks ago a splen did hose carriage was purchased, by the managers of the fair at St. Joseph Church, Common street, which was offered to the fire company polling the greatest number of votes, all for charitable purposes. The members of Philadelphia No. 14 are good voters—early, late and very often, and they coveted the carriage, and lor them to covet was to secure. They found powerful oppo nents, but that only urged them on, and they counted 4451 ballots, which elected them owners of the beauty. Having fairly secured it, it followed that a christening must ensue, and the interesting ceremony took place last night at Mr. Phil McCabe's fine residence, No. 417 Common street, where the machine was taken to gratify the boys. We do not know how it was that Mr. McCabe was elected to fulfill the office, but attending circumstances assure us that it was all right. Mr. Thomas Maxwell was the speaker on the occasion, and, of course, he acquitted himself satisfactorily to all. It had been arranged to name the carriage Lulu McCabe, Phil's three-year-old daugh ter, as pretty a child as can be found in the parish. Mr. Maxwell, in opening the cere monies, made a short speech suitable to the occasion, and was responded to by Mr. McCabe, a gentleman long and favorably known to the fire department of this city, and an exempt member of No. 14, as follows: Mr. President, and Gentlemen—On behalf of myself and family. I tender you our heart felt thanks for the honor conferred upon us, in naming this beautiful piece of mechanical skill, after our little daughter, in preference to so many other good and true friends of our company, who, by their exertions, have contributed more toward gaining this beau tiful prize than I have. You may rest as sured, gentlemen, that this new evidence of your esteem will always remain fresh in my memory, and if it ever lay my power, I shall endeavor to convince you of the truth of our motto, "That a friend in need, is a friend indeed." This past, the large and refined company adjourned to an arbor in the yard, brilliantly lighted, where a wholesome table invited the guests to regale themselves on the fat of the land. Many be&utifsl ladies waited on the timid gentlemen, urging them to eat and drink of the best, and their urging was not unheeded, while Jaeger's brass band made harmony for this occasion. President Grady, when wine was parsed, made a few remarks, followed by Messrs. Connors (foreman), McVey, Maxwell, McCabe, Tete, Waters and others of this gallant company, Lulu the time perched at the head of the table, wondering that she was such an object of interest, Altogether, it was one of the most joyous and hearty reunions we ever attended. Members of No. 14 do not propose to go abroad this summer and experience a gay time, but will remain at home—"Friends in Need," which motto they blazon on their belts, with becoming pride. They will use their prize only for parades on gala days. School Board.— There was a meeting of the.School Board last night. President Hahn absent, and Mr. Van Norden in the chair. The Committee on Teachers submitted a monthly report, which lies over subject to call. A report of the Librarian showing the present condition of the library and making recommendations, was referred to the Com mittee on Library. Applications of Mrs. J. P. Abbott, Mar shall School, and Miss S. Nortb, La Harpe Street School, for leave of absence, were referred to the Committee on Teachers with power to act. A resolution was adopted, that the vaca tion for 1870 shall commence June twenty fourth. Book agents are prohibited, by a resolu tion, from recommending books to the teachers at the school-houses, and teachers are instructed to use only such books as were adopted by the Board of Directors. The action of the Treasurer in paying the pay rolls lor April and May was approved. Hereafter, the German language will be taught in all the city high schools. Mr. Packard offered a resolution instruct ing the Committee on Teachers to report at next meetiDg the teachers who are deemed incompetent,which was adopted. A motion of Mr. Staes, that the board elect ward directors at this meeting, was lost. The special committee appointed to pre pare a report defining the duties of the ward directors to be appointed by this board, under the new school law, was granted further time to make a report, and a motion to request the committee to report at next meeting, was adopted. The board then adjourned till next Tues day evening.____ Bold Burglary.— The residence of Mrs. Pritchard, No. 3 Coliseum Place, was last night entered by a burglar, who entered the second story by using a ladder. He stole a few articles of no great value, and then escaped. _ Closed.— The boneblack factory, No. 400 Washington street, was yesterday ordered to be closed. The following New Orleans passengers sailed from New York for Brest and Havre, on the steamship Lafayette, on the twenty eighth instant: E. Godeaux, French Consul; Mr. and Mrs. C. Cavaroc and family of seven. Mr. and Mrs. F. N. Casado and family of five. Mr. and Mrs. L. McCarthv, Mrs. Aldridge and family of two, Misses Meurent, B. Turpin, Mrs. aDd Miss Pauline, Mrl Cusachs, Mr. and Mrs. E. Turpin, Mr. and Mrs. Edward Bermadez and two children, Mr. Lassene, Paul Castel. Mr. and Mrs. Lafitte and family of six, Mr. Ran son, Mr. B jeau, Mrs. Deneveaux, Mrs. Ar dede. Miss Edwards, L. Doulburt, L. Vignes, L. Labarre, J. Fachnare, Mrs. Doubhut, Jean Duchein, N. R. Pepin, B. Bourgeois, Mr. and Mrs. Romero, N. Romero, Mr. Amedefils, R. Pineau. Louis Perrenod, Ernest du Cordova, E. Auge, Theodore Leveau, P. Casanbreth—sixty-seven pas sengers. ___ The Louisiana Register, 'published in Jefferson aud Carrollton, says: The action of Governor Warmoth, in sus pending the execution of John Bazar, at the instance of prominent citizens, was a public benefit. Hanging is a demoralizing penalty, and it is about the worst use a man can be put to. We approve of the reprieve on purely social grounds, and without any feel ing of sympathy for Bazar. With the lights before us, he fully deserved hanging; but as his strangulation would have feasted the eyes of the same crowd that assembled to see Mace and Allen beat aud bruise each other, or that would attend to see a bull and bear fight, or any other cruel and disgust ing exhibition, we applaud the act that stopped the show. Bazar should be sent to the Penitentiary ior life. The New Iberia Times says: Last Wednesday, a few miles west of Lake Peigneur, in Vermillion parish, a man named Alexander Broussard, was shot and instantly killed by his brother-in-law, whose name we have been unable to learn. It ap pears that the deceased had long been the terror of the whole neighborhood, ill-treat ing even his own wife Irom the very day of their marriage, and causing all his rela tives to fear him. We are told he, last Wednesday, went, fully armed, to the house of a married sister, and, sitting on his horse, he called her out, drawing a pistol on her as soon as she appeared at the door. She immediatelv jumped back, when her hus band, who happened to be in, seized a gun, went out, fired upon the would-be murderer, killing him instantly. Mr. Dennett, of the Planters' Banner, writes this from New Orleans to his paper : A party of fifteen English surveyors have been stopping at the City Hotel, and have just left for Tehuantepec. They are to fin ish surveying the route for the railroad which is to connect the waters of the Pacific with the waters leading to the Atlantic Ocean. This company of fifteen men had trunks enough for the army of the Potomac. Some of tha men had their hats turbaned with white muslin as a protection against musquitoes, not a bad idea, though rather odd. This appears in the Homer Iliad, W. Jasper Blackburn's paper. He needs our sympathy: Some months ago a friend in New Orleans shipped to us, by a Minden boat, a demijohn of fine whisky, which has never come to hand, and can not be heard from. This friend now writes to us that he has dupli cated the present, and we are patiently waiting to see whether some thiej will not again break through and steal. The Louisville Courier Journal saucily says: When Lydia Thompson was making up her company to plav the "Forty Tfiieves" at Niblo's, she was told that the most accom plished actors in that role were to ue found in the customhouse and the office of the Collector of Internal Revenue. Lydia de clined to employ them, though, on the ground that the government has more to steal than she has. The Richmond Dispatch thus notes a new article of export from Virginia: Charles D. French, of J'etersboro, New Hampshire, was in Henrico county, last week, purchasing pigs from four to six weeks old, to ship to New Hampshire, where the demand is greater than the supply. He shipped all he could find for sale (about seventy), aud proposes to come again when the supply is greater. An old Boston merchant once said to young man of good reputation, from New Hampshire, whom he had just sold a lot of goods, partly on credit: "My young friend I have a word of advice to give you, as yiu are just commencing business on your own account; it is this: You should always keep in miud that you must either cheat customer or your creditor." The your ht young man listened, went home, thoug over the matter, and soon packed up nearly all those goods, shipped them to a distant point, and ran away, and the Boston mer chant never got a dollar tor them. A resolute and energetic Chinaman, an ardent Christian, is doing a good work among his countrymen in California, in sup plying them with the Holy Scriptures. These men are scattered all over the country, on grain farms, in orchards and vineyards, in hop-fielda and strawberry plantations, and great numbers in the mines and on the railroads. The Chinese Bible agent seeks out his countrymen with all diligence—finds them in the field, addresses them at their meals, and holds services with them after the labors of the day. , The managers of the first street railroad in London are required to run the early morning cars, which chiefly accommodate workingmen, at cheaper rates than in the less busy hours of the day. Thus the ar tisans who go to work at snnrise are charged two cents per trip, while the merchant who rides to his business at eight or nine o'clock has to pay four cents. This rate, after pre vailing through the day, is again reduced at snnset, and the laboring classes find cheap transportation home again.
