United States Mar-hai's Office, New Orleans, twenty-sixth day of May, 1870 & B. PACKARD. mj27 31 jel 14 United States Marshal of be MOW IT IS DOSE IN ST. LOUIS How it is Done in New York JEWELRY STOLEN IN A HOTEL The St. Louis Democrat says: Between nine and ten o'clock Monday evening a darim? thief entered room No. 52 of the Planters' House, occupied by Mr. J, L. Meyer, of BostoD, Massachusetts, and breaking open two trunks in the room, stole watches, diamonds and jewelry to the value of $5000. Mr. Meyer is a member of a large jewelry firm in Boston, and oorniDg to this city to sell goods, brought the articles with him as samples. He left his room about half-past eight o'clock to call upon one his friends, and did not return until nearly ten. When he entered his room he found everything in confusion, and the remaining contents of his two trunks scattered over the floor. The thief or thieves had probably "spotted" him, and must have known what the trunks contained. The entrance to the apartment was made through a door com municating with the adjoining room, and supposed to be properly secured. After entering, the thieves pried off the lock of one of the trunks and the hinges of the other. The trunk containing Mr. Meyers' wardrobe, it appears, was first searched, but as the rascals did not find in it what they wanted, the other was burst open and the jewelry discovered. This trunk con tacted diamonds and other articles to tbe value of $25,000 or $30,000, but in their haste to escape the scamps only succeeded in carrying off about one-fifth of the valu ables. They must have been either greatly hurried or very poor judges of jewelry, as they carried away a number of plated chains and left between two and three hundred solid gold ones in the bottom of the trunk. Some of the most valuable diamond sets were also left behind. The robbers departed in the same way they entered, and the victim upon Ins return discovered the theft and informed the police authorities of his ioss. Detectives were sent out to look for the perpetrators, but up to tiiis time no arrests have been made. This burglary and robbery, following so closely upon the Spyer robbery, shows that there a gang of experienced burglars in the city, who, if not brought to justice, will doubtless soon commence operations on a more exten sive scale. Some citizens assert that there are good grounds for believing both robberies to have been committed by the same, or a portion of the same gang. Others, however, feel equally certain that the thieves bad followed Mr. Meyer from Boston, aad, knowing what his trunks contained, only waited a favor able opportunity to rifl.3 them. The New York Standard tells us how the robbery business is conducted in New York : A robbery occurred at St. Nicholas Hotel yesterday morning, than which the records of crime can show none more bold, if the statement of the victim can be relied upon. In broad daylight, at the busiest hour ot the day, iu this noisiest of hotels, on Broadway, a gentleman wag gagged, bound, and robbed. Probably it was because of the confusion and crowd that the daring deed was committed with impunity, for the thieves arranged the job to well that they were enabled to escape at their leisure, car rying their plunder with them. On Tuesday afternoon, at about half past two o'clock, a man, apparent.y an Italian, speaking but little English, called at the place of business of Joseph E Isaacs, a diamond broker at No. 59 East Thirteenth street, whose p ace was entered by safe blow ers not long since, and robbed of a large amount. The stranger announced he had a quantity of diamonds and jewelry to disp se of, which he had brought with him lrom Cuba. Some of them he had with him, he said, and he showed the broker several pieces of value. The rest of the valtiables were at his r-om in the St Nicholas Hotel, and he made an app intment with Isaacs to come to the hotel yesterday morning at ten o'clock, when the sale was to he concluded. At the appointed hour, Isaacs called and showed the card which his visitor had given him to the book keeper, requesting to be conducted to that room. The card con tained the name "Carlo Dejaiie,'' room No. 450. The visitor was shown to this room, which is on the fifth floor, and was admitted by Dejalis, as he styled himself, who asked Isaacs to be seated, and left the room for about three minutes, returning with a large black, common oil cloth valise, which con tained the jewels he said. The man took out a bunch of keys and fumbled at the bag for 6ome time, but said finally that he had not the right key, and "I had better come to your office at eleven o'clock with the jewels.'' He then lett the room again for a short time to replace the valise, but re turned again, followed by another man. Mr. Isaacs, a man of some observation and experience, says that he became suspicious at this time and started for the door, when the last man who entered, who had evi dently come from the adjoining room, No. 449, stepped before him and warned him to keep quiet or he would drive the dagger through his breast. The other mau then seized Isaac? and gaged him, and the two threw him down on the floor. They then ap plied a towel saturated with chloroform to his face, the victim says, and he remembtrs nothing more. In about twenty-five minutes he recovered consciousness, and found himself alone and the gag removed, but he was bound hand and foot, and his face was bruised and swollen. For tea minutes he lay calling for assistance, when the carpenter of the hotel, hearing his cries, burst the door and re lieved him. The thieves had taken two hundred dollars iu money, valuable papers, a diamond and ruby ring, and some gold coin, but they mysttriously neglected to rob him of a diamond scarf pin and a gold w ateh and chain. When the detectives searched the rooms they found in No. 450 the black valise, which contained nothing but clothing, except the vignette of a man, recognized as the princi pal in the robbery. The above is Mr. Isaacs' statement. It is barely possible that he has not toid the whole story, and that when all is known the robbery may not prove so atrocious. The hotel register shows that the thieves arrived from Philadelphia on Monday hight, and that their names are Carlo Dejalis, room No. 450, and Louis Cbeval. The School Examination*. The annual examinations of the public schools will begin on Monday, the thirteenth instant, and continue until all have been visited. The time allotted for examining the sixty or more schoolhouses i3 too short to leave us to expect anything very thor ough, but we have never had much of that sort of thing, and it would not be fair to look too closely into the many defects that crept in under the management of the late board of directors. We hope the recently appointed directors will bestow their per soual attention upon the schools during the comiDg examination, but more with a view to future improvement than with the expec tation that much has been done during the past year. Superintendent Carter will doubtless go into every school-room before Some things can be done as well as others, j we all know, but the most of people are j anxious to know tlie best thing to be done. ! The man who was lucky enough to draw the : high prize in the last single number ^raw ing of the Louisiana State Lottery most ] likely thinks the best thing to be done is to buy tickets in the next drawing. Well, this proved a good thing to him, and might prove so to others who buy tickets. It may be the best thing that can be done in the ♦ay of becoming suddenly wealthy. Let us try it. THE COURTS. - r j United State* Circuit Court—The SlaoRh terhonae Cu*e* — Injunction Aguluai Judge Dibble. ! Live Stock Dealers and Batchers' Benevo : lent Association vs. Crescent City Slaugh terhouse Company.—A petition to the fol lowing effect was tiled yesterday : The live stock dealers, consisting of Jor ■ dan T. Aycock, John Wilson, Benjamin Welles, Paul Esteban, Daniel Broderick and other prominent butchers and live stock | dealers, allege that on Friday, the third of June. 1870, an injunction was issued from : thy Eighth District Court of the parish of ! Orleans, directed to the Mayor of the city of 1 New Orleans, the Administra'or of Com : merce and of the Metropolitan Police, com manding them to perform certain acts, the purport of which was to prevent the sale in the public or private markets of the city of New Orleans of any beet, mutton, fresh pork or other meat used for human food, unless the same had been killed and inspected in the slaughterhouse owned by the Crescent City Live (stock Landing Slaughterhouse Company. The proceeding purports to be taken under the civil rights bill, and an injunction i is asked restraining Judge Dibble and the I Slaughterhouse Company from taking any ' further action in relation to the injunction I issued from the Eighth District Court on j Friday last. j The petitioners ask for a writ of certiorari, ; directing Judge Dibble to send up the papers j in said slaughterhouse injunction case. A i rule nisi to show cause why the papers : should not be so transferred, was issued by 1 Judge Bradley and Judge Woods, returnable ■ on Wednesday morning, the eighth instant. < The Ship Itland Cunul Case. I In the matter of the contest between John : Lockwood and the Board of Drainage Com j missioners. relative to certain booKs and j papers, belonging to the Ship Island Canal ! Company, alleged to have been forcibly i taken possession of by one of the parties, Judge Cooley has decided against the right ot the alleged trespassers to give bond and retain the possession of such books.

Mr. Earhart spoke an hour and a half. The matter wtt6 taken under advisement. The Jacksan Railroad Case. The argument in this case was closed yesterday, and Judge Dibole re*erved his decision. The Eighth J uitlce of Ihe Peace. H. C. Cauikins, who was a Justice of the Peace for the city of Jefferson, before its absorption by the city of New Orleans, has got himself into law, by assuming to act as Eighth Justice of the Peace for the city of Ne w Orleans, and parish of Orleans. Un fortunately for Cauikins, he decided some cases to which the parties interested ob jected, and asked one thousand, dollars damages. The Attorney General intervenes and says there is no such officer as Eighth Justice of the Peace. Judge Dibble ot the Eighth District Court, is called on to decide the matter. The Sloaghterhonae Cate. Crescent City Live Stock Lauding ac'd Slaughterhouse Company vs. Board of Metropolitan Police, et ah—Attorney Gene ral Beid'. n yesterday tiled iu this case, a petition of intervention, to the following effect: He adopts plaintiff's petition, and prays that the injunction granted in the case may be made perpetual. The petitioner repre sents that the State of Louisiana is inter ested in the strict entorcement of the law in reference to the slaughtering of animals for food iu the parishes of Orleans, Jefferson and St. Bernard, and that a violation of said law would be of irreparable injury to the intervenor; that her interest iu having her laws sustained and respectod is of higher importance than any money consid eration, resting, as it does, upon the ground that protection is only given to the people, and dignity and force to government, when tbe laws are faithtully executed, wherefore intervenor prays that the injunction herein sued out may be made perpetual, etc. ! i j ; : j : • j j j j ! j j j ! : ] Death of J. W. Shaw.— We regret to notice the death of John Wilson Shaw, Esq., which took place yesterday at the residence of Dr. Hire, Marine Hospital. Mr. Shaw was born at Lahaska, Bucks county, Penn sylvania, in 1637; he emigrated when quite a youth to Osyka, Mississippi. He married and settled in St. Helena parish, in this State. In IS65, he was appointed Deputy United States Assessor for the parishes of Erst and West Feliciana, and served a num ber of years in this and the chief clerkship of the district office at Baton Rouge. Sub sequently, removing to this city, he was ap pointed by Governor Warmoth a notary public for the palish of Orleans. On the organization of the New Orleans, Baton Rouge and Vicksburg railroad, he was chosen its first secretary, but was compelled by his advancing i 1 Lealth to resign the position in March. The deceased was a brother of Mr. Alfred Shaw, of this city. He was a finished accountant and book keeper, thoroughly methodical, but prompt iu the transaction of business, and enjoyed a wide spread and deserved reputation for trust worthiness and sound judgment in business affairs. His death will be regretted by a large circle of friends in city and country. His remains will be taken upon the Jackson railroad this morning, tor interment in St. Helena. See supplement to to-day's Repfdlican. The Tensas Gazette reports the following developments of a murder in that parish: About one year ago Mr. R. B. Dunbar, of this parish, employed a negro man named Lazarus Turner, as his foreman, upon the Black Water plantation on Lake St. Joseph, to take charge of a set of hands to whom Lazarus was a stranger. Immediately a spirit of jealousy was plainly shown among the hands on the place against the newly appointed foreman. He suddenly dis appeared kt an unaccountable manner. Tfie usual "nine days'wonder" was indulged in, and the busy work of making a crop soon obliterated the circumstance from the minds of those who had known the missing man, though it was whispered that he had been foully dealt with. Last wet k, after nearly a year had elapsed, some human bones were ploughed up in a garden cultivated by one of the negroes on Black Water plantation, which at once started investigation, and the matter was brought before Coroner Dixon, who sum moned a jury, and the following verdict was rendered: "That Lazartn Turner came to his death by having his throat cut while asleep in his bed ou Black Water plantation, in the parish of Tensas, State of Louisiana, on or about the fifth day of June, A. D. 18C9, by one John Sissell, principal, and Moses Neal, Esther Turner, (daughter of the mur dered man), Ephraim Williams, Jack Turner, William Hatcher and Simon Lewis, all colored, accessories." Ephraim Williams has turned State's evidence and disclosed the whole affair, in accordance with the facts above related. The principals and ac cessories have been lodged iu the parish jail.

The unrivalled arrangements made by the Crescent Slaughteihouee Company on the right bank are fast coming into play; and j the amount of business done at the works, I already large, is daily increasing. Yester day, from midday till late in the afternoon, the front street of Algiers presented a very animated appearance, owing to the long com course of vehicles laden with freshly slaughtered meat, on its way to the other side of the river. The stream of carts and wagons, fast following each other, amounted to a formal procession. The work of slaughtering at the Crescent establishment, commences at about eleven o'clock A. M., and continues until late in the evening. In addition to the regular means of crossing the river at' the Canal street, and Second and Third District fer ries, the Slaghterhouse Company have, for the convenience of the butchers, put in requisition a steamboat of their own, which runs late in the night, so there is as little trouble to convey meat to the markets, as if the slaughterworks were on the left bank. The various and perfect appliances for killing made by the Crescent Slaughter house Company give entire satisfaction to all who are using them, and even the most jaundiced, after examination, do not with hold a surly approbation. Tho extreme cleanliness of the slaughter pens, notwithstanding the large amount of killing done, and the utmost freedom from offensive smell, is owing to the immense facilities for the supply of water. Among other improvements may be men tioned the hide vats, which are ranged close to the slaughter pens, greatly to the convenience of the butchers, who can salt the hides as they strip them without moving ten feet front the pens. As business is conducted at the Crescent Slaughterhouse Company's works, the pub lic have the most reliable assurance that all meat now sold will;be in the most.healtby condition. The oattle are all faithfully in spected, and every side or quarter of meat must necessarily be accompanied by the Slaughterhouse checks of inspection, so that purcuasers may be satisfied of the quality ol the article they are buying. Another excellence in the company's ar rangements is that owing to the perfect ventilation of the buildings, making the interior of the slaughter pen? as cool as an ice-house, meat which in other circum stances would spoil in twelve hours, can there be retained full twenty-four hours iu perfectly sound condition. Upon one thing the public mind may rest perfectly satisfied, that the extensive facili ties at the Crescent Slaughter Works are such that the whole city can be amply sup plied. The killing at these works is always de layed until the hour of 11 P. M., to give the large butchers (meaning the butchers who slaughter extensively) the time necessary to receive orders from small dealers, who do not kill for themselves. It may not be generally known that there are in New Orleans a large number of meat dealers who do not slaughter the meat; they sell (orobably do not know bow), but who buy their meat from the "big" butchers, just as owners ,of small shops buy candy from wholesale confectioners. Although things are so animated at the Crescent Slaughter works, ali works smoothly and to the purpose. Salta for Damage*. Petitions have been drawn up by Messrs. Campbell & Spofford and Cotton & Levy, attorneys of the butchers, and will be filed in one ot our District courts to day, claiming damages for about five hundred plaintiffs, amounting in the aggregate to about thirty thousand dollars. The suits will be against the Crescent City Live Stock Lauding and Slaughterhouse Company, the city of New Orleans, Franklin J. Pratt, C. A. Weed, and others. The petitions claim damages from the defendants in solido for this: That petitioners are engaged in the business of killing and preparing meat for sale in the markets ot the cit 7 of New Or' leans; that on the evening of June 4, 1870, they killed at the establishment of the Live Stock Dealere' and Butchers' Association, in the city of New Orleans, just below the United States Barracks, beeves, calves and sheep, and designed for the mar ket of the morning of June 5, and that they placed the meat in their carts, and in bring ing it up to the market place in the morning, at Elysian Fields street, the officers of police illegally took possession of their carts, horses and meat, and carried the same to the Third District station, where the meat was detained, piled up in carts and exposed to the rays of the suu until it was spoiled and became utterly worthless. Petitioners represent that their property was illegally and wantonly taken from them and thus destroyed through the combined action of the Crescent City Live Stock Land ing a^d Slaughterhouse Company, through its president; the city of New Orleans, through its agents and police officers, and the other parties; that the acts of each and all of said corporations and parties, in thus destroying their property, were illegal, malicious and oppressive, and done with the will and intent of damaging petitioners in their property as above set forth, and, that each'of eaid corporations and parties are liable to the petitioners in solido. Wherefore petitioners pray for citation on each of said corporations, through their proper officers, and on each of the above named parties, and after due proceedings bad, they have and recover judgment against them, in solido for damages, with iuterest from judicial demand, with costs, and for ail and genoral relief.
