Jfstf NEW ORLEANS F1BE DEPARTMENT Grand Reception - Given to Them PR0CE88I0N, COLLATION AID SPEECHES [From the Cincinnati Gazette.] It was announced several days ago that a part of the New Orleans Fire Department were en route for this place, and that pre parations had commenced for the reception of the guests by the fire department of Cin cinnati. Yeaterday afternoon about one o'clock the excursionists arrived over the Ohio and Mississippi Railroad, and were brought to the depot of the Cincinnati, Hamilton and Dayton Riilroad. Here tbe party, consist ing of one fire hand company, the Mechan ics' No. 6. the Hope Hook and Ladder Com pany No. 3, and the representatives of three other companies of New Orleans, with the First and Second Assistant Engineers of the department, and a number of Quests, re mained-until three o'clock to enable the companies to get their engine and truck in order preparatory to taking np their line of march through the city. THE EXCUBSI0NT8TS. The excursionists were received at three o'clock at tbe depot by Messrs. Covington, Gibson and Reintein, of the Board of Aider men ; Messrs. Brickel, Baker, Doan, Bishop and Von Seggern, of the City Council; J. F. Blackburn, City Clerk; Captain E. G. Me grue, Chief of the Fire Department; Assist ants Hughes and Wtsby, and two delegates from each fire company of tbe city; a de tachment of police under Lieutenants Evans and Simmons, and Cueriei's Zouave Battal iion Band. The procession passed up Sixth street. Central avenue, Fourth, Walnut and Sixth streets, the Mechanics drawing their splen did engine surmounted with silver plate, trumpets, etc., received in contests with other companies; the Hope also palling their truck, which was in admirable order. The firemen were clad in black pants and red shirts, and presented a very fine appear ance. They are good specimens of man hood, and show very clearly trom their phy sique where their success is found. as they passed along the line of march, accompanied by one of the finest steam en gines of the city, large numbers gathered on the street, and the minds of not a few were carried back to a few years ago when we had no steam engines, and when the property and lives of our citizens were alone dependent upon such muscle and manly courage as was exhibited in the ranks of onr guests. THE COLLATION. The procession halted at the headquar ters of the Fire Department, on 8ixth street, near Vine (Gift Enginehouse), where the property of the excursionists was taken in charge by our firemen, who ran out their own ladders into the street, in order to ac commodate their friends. After they had taken breath, they were in vited to the new hall of the buildiDg to take something else. Here was a splendid collatioo, to which the party sat down and did justiee. There was an abundance to satisfy the ap petite, tickle the palate, please the eye and make the heart merry. They were sand wiched, and berried and creamed, and wined; and after all this had been done, as onr Fire Department know well how to do, the Hon. George F. Davis arose and welcomed tne guests to the Queen City. He said he re membered the kindness and consideration witl which the Cincinnati delegates were treated a year ago at the Commercial Con vention, and repeated a number of names wbom they held in special remembrance. He complimented the duty of the fireman, and said he welcomed them because they werewilling to serve mankind. It was like the o d times to see firemen with their hand engines, and it brought up many pleasant recolltctions. He tuew as long as Chief Megrue was ad ministering to their comfort it would De well done. He closed by expressing the hope tnat their stay would be a pleasant one. and that th;y would all be bound together by stiil stronger ties. Captain Robert E. Diamond, of the Me chanics' Fire Company, responded to the ad' dress o; welcome. He had not words to express his thanks for the reception and welcome they had received. He said they were away from home on a tour of recrea tion, and to cultivate feelings of fraternal good will. He offered the health and pros perity of the Fife Department of Cincinnati, which was greeted with cheers. Chief Mtgrue was called out, but said he could not make a speech, and never ex pected to make one. He was very glad to welcome the guests before him, and he as sured them they wonld do all in their power to make their stay pleasant. Billy Glaia was called for; and responded briefly in behalf of the City Council, whose earnest welcome it was his pleasure to ex tend. M. Carroll, of New Orleans, Treasurer of the Hope Hock and Ladder Company, was loudly called for, bat declined to make a speech. S. F. Covington, of the Board of Aldermen, responded to a call in a brief speech, and was followed bj A. A. Stone, of the Mechan ics', of New Orleans, who Baid they had come to extend the light hand of fellowship to the firemen of this and other citieB. He thanked them att for the cordial reception New Orleans bad received. Mr. Von Seggern was called out, and made a few remarks. Mr. Snattuck, cf the Erie Railway, was brought out, and said some time ago, when there was a conteit between the roads, the road he represented had stood np for Cin cinnati. This they would continue to do; and, he assured them, so far as the road over which they were to pass was concerned, they would find Cincinnati hospitality fol lowing them. Mr. Covington then toasted the Fire De partments of New Orleans and Cincinnati, expressing the hope that their friendship would coil time, and that new ties wouid be found to bind them together. They then formed in line and marched to the Fifth Street Market Space, where the Washington No. 1 and Brighton No. 13 gave an exhibition of their power and efficiency. The guests then repaired to the Gibson House, where they are stopping, and at eight o'clock were escorted to Wood's Theater by the Zouavp Battalion band, where they were treated to the hospitality of Billy Manning. To-day they will spend looking at the sights of the city, and tkis evening at 9:45 the party will depart for Philadelphia over the Erie Railway. Mr. Bhattuck has pro vided the party three iplenuid sleeping and one drawing room conches, in which they will whirl over the broad gange to Philadelphia. This train will be on exhbition after nine o'clock to-day, at the depot of the Cincin nati, Hamilton and Dayto* Railroad. The train east will be in charge of W. A. Bates, Southern Agent of the Erie road. A. G. McGuire, of the Mobile Register, accompanies the party East. There companies challenge any similar company in the United States to a trial of speed or efficiency. In the East, whither they are bound, they expect to find an op portunity of showing what they can do. Mr. Tracy, of the Hook and Ladder Com pany, thanked the Fire Department of Cin cinnati, the authorities and all concerned, for the generous words of welcome they had heard. Mr. Latta was next called for, an 1 made some remarks touching the relations ot the hand to the steam engine, and compliment ing the Ne w Orleans firemen on their courage in challenging the world. The Homer Iliad bestows this compli ment: Both onr United States Senators are dis tinguishing themieives, and gaining the high esteem and compliments of all fair-minded men among ns, regardless of party—Kellogg for his efforts in behalf of the Southern Pacific Railroad enterprise, and Harris for his energy and ability in favor of our leves interests. THE COURT*. Discharge of Jack ItUlenn. The following is the decision given by Judge CocUey, in the Sixth District Court, in the JackKilleen habeas corpus case: Some people in this city seem to imagine it is a matter of pleasure to the District Judges to release parties who stand charged with the crime of vagrancy. I care little abont the opioion of persons who have such ideas. But I know that in tho community of New Orlenns there are many men whose good opinion I do value, and who have a very wrong notion in relation to these mat ters. I therefore take this occasion to ex plain the position ot the courts of New Or leans in their relations to the police and Recorders of the city. The matter is just as plain as a mans nose on his face. One who can not see a man's nose on his face, is about the only in. dividual who can not appreciate the dis tinction the courts have made. In the Revised Statutes, enacted at the last session of the Legislature, are two laws about vagrancy, one which is simply the re enactment of the act of 1855, and the other the re-enactment ot the act of 18C9. The act of 1855 authorized Recorders to try and adjudicate the guilt or innocence of a person charged with the crime of va grancy. This power the Legislature of 1855 had clearly the right to comer upon the Re corders. Article 124 of the constitution of 1852 clearly cave that power to the Legisla ture. But the act of 1869 does not give them that power. It places the disposition of sQch cases before the first District Court, the Criminal Court of this city, to be tried by the Judge of that court, and if the ac cused so desires, by a jury. That is the law which is now operative under the constitution of 1669, because that constitution prohibits the Legislature giving the power to any other officers except thote mentioned in the judiciary department of the constitution. Under that law, parties accused of vagran cy can be tried, convicted aqd punished. No court in this city has ever decided they could not be. But it is evident that lor some pur pose evidently foreign to the pnblic good, or public welfare, the police and Recorders of this city, do not choose to proceed under the act of 1869, which divests them of the power to try these criminals and gives it to Judge Abel, they wish to retain their control over those cases; and it is simply a fight on their par< to retain the power the act of 1855 gaveth' tn, bat which, under tbe constitution of 1863, long as I am on the bench, they wul not exercise. It can cot te for the purpose of subserving the public interest, because courts which are their superior, and whose orders they are bound to obey, have decided that they are wrong and most proceed under the act of 1869. If they choose still to proceed under the act of 1855, notwithstanding the decision of their superiors that this act la no longer operative, it is upon them and not on the courts that the blame must rest, that par ties like the one now before ne are let loose upon the community. It ir clear to my mind that if there be any fault at all for letting loose these partiei on the com munity, it is notin the coarts. It is not the fault of the J udges, who hav ing taken an oath to admiuitter the consti tution and iaw as it is written, obey the dic tates of that oath and choose not to violate the laws and the constitution. On the con trary, the blame rests on those who have taken a similar oath, but choose to disregard tbe law they are sworn to maintain. I can not see what good object is to be subserved by insisting upon a manner of commitment of these parties, which the law does not justify, and which can not be car ried practically into effect. Although I have no power to revise the judgments of the Recorders, and although I can not say under the evidence that he had no right to arrive at the conclusion he did, still I have the right to refer to the testi mony taken before him, with a view of vindicating the justice of the prohibition contained in the constitution of 1868. I have read carefully and attentively the testimony taken before Recorder Staea on the trial of Caro on the ebarge of vagrancy, and as a lawyer, I will stake my reputation that there ia as much evidence before Re corder Staes to convict him of vagrancy ae there is to convict the Great Mogul. But, notwithstanding this, absolutely and utterly without evidence, the man Caro was con victed and sent to the Worklouse. I say such conduct as that ou the part of petty magistrates, amply vindicates and justifies the prohibition contained in the constitution of 1868, and shows that those who inserted that prohibition kaew what they were about. Let the prisoner be discharged. District Court. State ex rel. George A. Sheridan vs. James Graham, State Auditor.—In this case the relator 4 was appointed by the Governor State Tax Collector for the First District of New Orleans, in the place qf F. C. Mahan, who had been previously elected to the office. Some time ago thie court decided that Sheridan was entitled to the office, and Mahan appealed to the Supreme Court. He iB still the occnpant of the office, and is engaged in the collection of taxes. After tbe appeal was taken, Sheridan took out an injunction restraining Jamta Graham, State Auditor, from auditing the claim of F. C. Mahan for the fees and emoluments of his office. Tbe case came up yesterday on a rule to set aside the injunction and a claim for dam ages on the part of tlahsni and against Sheri dan. Mr. Mahan, on the stand, Said that since the issuance of the injunction the State Auditor had refused to give him any blank licenses, and he had, therefore, been un able to collect licenses amounting to over $30,000. Last year he collected about $230, on which his commissions were five per cent. The amount of licenses which he has been prevented from collecting since the tenth ot June is about $30,000, and the amount of taxes from $295 000 to $300,000, which he could have collected by tuis time if it bed not been for this injunction. The commissions notf due him on licenses are $235. He has collected this month about $50,000. Sir. Burekett on the stand, said that Mr. Mahan has made a demand on the Auditor for a warrant for the amount of his commis sions as State Tax Collector, and that the Auditor has refused on account of this in junction. Wituess was frequently in the office of the State Tax Co.lector, and per sons came there and refused to pay taxes, in consequence of this injunction. The rule was continued by consent until Saturday.at ten o'clock. Second District Conrt-Will Of John Arm.truui.

FIELD DAT OF STEAMBOATMEN The Natchez and Lee Contest GENERAL EXCITEMENT YESTERDAY Almost the entire topic of conversation by all circles in the city yesterday was the grand contest for speed between the Robert E. Lee and the Natchez. Everybody talked abont it, and half the city bet on the result. The aggregate bets may.be estimated at hundreds of thousands of dollars. The ladies were quite excited, and colored gentlemen were expressing their opinions freely on the street corners. One enthu siastic colored man, whose faith in the Natchez was unbounded, declared that Captain Leathers wonld beat the Lee if he had to blow his boat tb pieces. A sporting man on the levee proposed to bet on the Robert E. Lee, because of bis faith in the name, declaring that he knew nothing of either boat, whereupon a delegate from Yankee land said be wonld take the bet, with a certainty of winning, if tbe name was not more potential than during the late un pleasantness. In fact, yesterday was a field day among steamboatmen, and thousands congregated on the levee to witness tho departure of excursion boats and the rival steamers. At least two thousand excursionists, among them many ladies, started, an hour or so before the Lee and Natchez departed, on the steamers William 8. Pike, Mayflower, Henry Tete and the towboat Mary Alice. Ahese boats run up a distance of from twmve to twenty miles to await the approacji of tbe contestants for supremacy on the mighty Mississippi. Thousands of people congregated all along the levee, and there were seas of faces at the head of Jackson street, and at Car rollton, to witness the grand spectacle. The Lee backed out abont four minutes past five, and the Natchez four minutes later. According to the information ob tained by one of onr reporters, the Lee was precisely four minntes ahead when opposite Market street, had gained slightly when op posite Carrollton, v^as four minutes and three or four seconds ahead about twelve miles np the river, and four minutes and a half ahead eighteen miles np, where the Mary Alice was lying too, though between two points of observation from the Mary Alice, the Natchez gained eight seconds on the Lee. „ Governor Warmoth.who had just returned on the William S. Pike from attending the commencement exercises at the State Uni versity at Baton Ronge, took passage ten minutes afterward on the Lee, and will not probably leave her until she arrives at Natchez. Last evening new bet9 were made, and the general topic of conversation at hotels, coffeehouses and other public places was the race between the Natchez and Lee. But the excitement was no more intense here than at St, Louis and Cincinnati, from both of which points we received requests for special dispatches giving all the details of the race. Our dispatches this morning will probably contain eome intelligence from Baton Rouge, .of the progress of the rival steamers. On the return trip there was an exciting race between the William S. Pike and May flower, but the latter was no match for the Pike, which ranged ahead with remarkable ease. We follow this with Another Deport. Another Deport. THE LEK AND NATCHEZ EACE. The excitement growing out of this event induces us to give it more than a passing notice. For days past the intensity of feel ing has found vent only in the wildest bet ting, until as thfe hour of departure drew nigh, the partisans of each subsided into an eager interest to see the lines cast loose, and as the Lee swung out into the stream the most frantic cheers were given to her. The Natchez left immediately afterward, and when tho immense throng upon the wharf had exhausted its cheers and waving of hats and handkerchiefs, those who were not in tent upon watching the contestants out of sight, were rushing about in search of each others proffers of betting. As we were not deeply affected by this part'of the programme, we quietly awaited the return of the several excursion steamers, which had taken their crowds to points above to witness the race as so far de veloped. The steamer Mary Alice, one of the Mis sissippi Valley Transportation Company's towboats, ran np to the highest point, (eighteen mile point) and there awaited the passing of the rival steamers, the Lee then being four minutes and fifty seconds ahead. It seems that the excursionist on board the steamer Henry Tete, which was the next highest boat, were so handsomely en tertained that they gave too little note to the contestants—at least we encountered none who kept such notes. We endeavored to get near enough to Captain Dalfores or Mr. Landry for that purpose, but they were too constantly surrounded by a throng. We were unable to meet any one on either of the other excursion steamers who had kept any accurate notes. To dav, when the excite ment has somewhat abated, we will gather all further and reliable particulars, and our readers shall be edified by our efforts to morrow. __ The Great Republic arrived yesterday, having landed the Coolies—141 in number— at their point of destination. , Excursion to Magnolia, Mississippi.— Two trains leave the Jackson Railroad de pot at seven o'clock, A.
