On the fifteenth of April, 1807, tlie City of Jefferson granted to John Lockwood the right to erect works, put up street lamps and manufacture gas for the city for a period of thirty years. The Legislature subsequently confirmed this charter by an act upproVed March 9, 1869. Shortly afterward a stock company was formed, and the initial steps taken to proseoute the en terprise. A portion of ground, anqlle for the purjKMie, lias been purchased on Valence street, three or four squares below St. Charles, and the required buildings erected and machinery put up. So that now the in habitants of the Sixth District have a well arranged gas works, capable of supplying all the demand that is likely to l»e erented for some months to come. And as it in creases, the works will be enlarged to meet the emergency. Tlie present directors of the company are: John Lockwood, W. li. Fish, S. X. Burbank, Watts Kearny and J. M. Reid. Mr. Lock wood is the president and manager. The directors, wisely, as we believe, entrust him with the sole direction of affairs, ami he has hurried up the work in hand with an en_ ergy and completeness that does credit to his judgment. Gas was turned on for the first time last evening, and the occasion was celebrated by the meeting together of a number of gentlemen friends of the enterprise, officials and citizens. Mayor Flan ders, Administrators Shaw, Ernley and Delas size, all the directors of the company, the officers of the New Orleans Gas Light Com pany, and thirty or forty other well known citizens were present. The works on Val ence street were first inspected. The latest improvements in the way of machinery, re torts, meters, etc., have been generally in troduced. The reservoir is capable of hold ing 40,000 cubic jeet of gas, and the works can generate the article as fast as the pres ent estimated consumption. One ' hundred and sixty street lamps—beautiful models— have been ereeted. The company has al ready laid down about six miles of main pipe, and are still going ahead. St. Charles avenue. Valence street and a part of Maga zine street are now lighted by the company. They propose to light up the latter as far as Peters avenue. The gas was turned on just at dusk, and burned well from tlie beginning. Mr. Lockwood's residence, on St. Charles street, was also illuminated, being the first private house lighted by gas above Louisiana avenue. When it was apparent that every thing was satisfactory, and the work and anxieties of months had been erowned with success, Mr. Lockwood invited the gentle men assembled to partake of some cooling refreshments. Champagne, cake, fruit, etc., were offered in profusion, and the " good time" usual on such occasions ensued. Mayor Flanders, in response to a call, made a brief address, complimentary to the ener gy and jMitriotism of tlie gentlemen who had done so much to benefit the citizens of the Sixth District. The Jefferson Gas Works Company is now one of the live institutions of the nineteenth century. The initial steps have all been taken, and the beginning of a new era fairly inaugurated. Success is certain. Let no person, howsoever exalted he or she may Ik* for the present, imagine for one moment that it is impossible for adversity to overtake them. Examples of this kind have been many within the past few years, proving that persons have tumbled from high estates into the depths of poverty. And on the other hand persons reared in poverty have suddenly risen to the posses sion of immense wealth, wliich surrounded them with the luxuries of life. The man who can deport himself properly under these changes of fortune—whether for good or evil—is the man who deserves the sympa thies and respect of those who can admire true worth. It is to the poor, then, as well as the rich, and the indejiendent laboring classes, that it would lie well to say, " Buy your tickets at once if you would have a chance of drawing a prize in the next single number drawing of the Louisiana State Lottery, which takes place on Saturday next." The many persons who have risen from poverty to sudden wealth by simply investing a few dollars in tickets in this institution, over which President Charles T. Howard presides with so much vigilance, is the best of proof that matters are pro perly conducted, and that if a prize is drawn the monev is forthcoming. Governor Warmoth has appointed F. C. Reinick clerk of the Fourth District Court; R. A. Blanks, Public Administrator, Cald well parish; Robert McMillcn, notary pub lic, St. Mary parish; O. H. Hempstead, Pub lic Administrator, Iberville; Alexis Octave Lebeau, notary public, parish of Pointe Coupee; A. M. Kilpatrick, Justice of the Peace, Seventh Ward, Avoyelles parish; A. F. Crane, State Tax Collector, parish of Madison; O. B. DeBellevue, Chief Consta ble, parish of Avoyelles; Theodore P. Pinck ney, Parish Surveyor, parish of East Fe liciana; Marcel G. Broussard, Police Juror, Fourth Ward, Lafayette parish; J. B. Yer ger, Police Juror, Tenth Waal, parish of Caldwell. This is a compliment to printers, certain ly : Frank L. liice, now a cadet at West Point Military Academy, writes, the Spring field, Massachusetts, Mepul>Ucan says, that four of tlie new class of thirty-six members, accepted from ninety-six applicants, are printers. One of the officers at the acade my states that never to his knowledge has a printer been rejected because of mental disabilities or unfitness, although applicants have been numerous from the 4 craft.' This speaks well for the intelligence of the class. We find this in the New York Commercial Advertiser : It is related as an instance of the ups and downs °f life that Colonel James Dotson, once Speaker of the Mississippi House of Representatives, is now a reporter on a New Orleans paper. Who would think that a man could soar so "high,'' and sink so "low 1" Colonel Dotson never occupied a more honorable position than when he was a re porter on a New Orleans paper, and his warmest friends sincerely regret that he is not so employed now. At some of the - hotels in the country they have colored waiters, who, after their day's work is done, come into the parlor and play the piano and violin for the dancing, thus taking the place of a hired band. THE PO 88 IBLE KING OF SPAIN. Germany appears to have been, time out of mind, the emporium to which the nations and politicians o/ Europe look for a kin" whenever, like the Israelites in the days of Samuel, they find themselves deprived of that blessing by any political exigency, in consequence of the failure of the legitimate succession or of revolutionary upturning. It has been found expedient, too, in various eases where the contentions of opposing oandidate8 threatened the dangers and hor fors of bloody war to "split the difference," and settle the trouble by importing a king of Germanic nationality, who, being a stranger in language aud manners to the nation over which he was called to rule, would have, at any rate, the merit- of im partiality, and mete out justice and decide questions of State with the scrupulous dis regard of favoritism that actuated the monkey when he adjusted the cheese con troversy between the two eats. We might instance King Otlio, of Greece, or nearer home, the two first . Georges of Great Britain, who reigning over the land with an impartial dislike to everything English, re mained intensely and dogmatically German to the end of their august and kingly ex istence. What has been done before by nations distressed for lack of kingly rule, is now, it seems, about to be done by Spain; anil in all probability the German Pnnce Leopold, of Hoheuzollem. is to be the recipient of the "splendid prize," and perhaps to verify the words of Sliapkesjieare, "uneasy lies the head that wears a crown." In free and enlightened America, where toadyism is unknown, and where the people never crowd around, and how down to any accidental lordliug who by chance finds his noble feet pressing over' plebian soil, the who is he. or tlie what about 'the German prince who is likely to be a Spanish king, will not excite much attention. Still, as our people did on one occasion evince an excited curiosity, when with heart-deep (■motion, they anxiously sought to know who was James K. Polk, it is possible that a similar curiosity mav be felt to know who is Prince of Hoheuzollem. Prince Leopold, of Hoheuzollem, is an offshoat of the royal family of Brandenburg, the head of which family is the King of Prussia. He is the eldest son of Prince Anton, of Hohenzollem-Sigmaringen, and his wife. Princess Josephine, of Baden, and was horn in 1835. so that lie is of ago—suf ficient! v nurture to understand the responsi bility he accepts, while he still is in the vigor of manhood. Hohcnzollcm-fiigmaringcn, from which Prince Leopold takes his title.was, until a few years ago. one of the many petty principal ities that formed so largely comjxinont parts of the great Germanic Confederation; prin cipalities, tlie territories of which could be walked over in a day, the ultimate sover eignties of which was maintained by an army ot about a dozen soldiers, officered by "a commander in chief and two drummers of great experience," the troops being mustered into service at dinner time to act as waiters at table. Tlie progress of po litical science lias shown, however, that the ultimate sovereignties of these petty States were a standing imiK'dimeut to progress, hence they have been mostly absorbed into the realms of their larger neighbors. In 1849, the principality of which Prince Leo pold was heir was ceded by treaty to the kingdom of Prussia, whose monarch is the the head of the Holicnzollem family. By that treaty all sovereign rights were ceded to Prussia, and in return the prince of that territoVy received the title of liighncss by a royal decree, which conferred on him all the prerogatives belonging to the younger prineess of tlie royal family. So that no i»ower attends his title. He is a prince, just as vurious loungers around the door of a village hotel, when the train comes in are colonels and generals. He has, however, one title which means something; for he is a major in the guards attendant ou the royal household at Berlin. His want of power or possessions is not, though, any impediment to the throne of Spain, for liis noble and royal blood remedies all that. Like Mqjor Dugald Dalgettv, "He is as good a gentleman us the King, although not so rich." He is a man of thorough education, aud seems to have a character for no mean ability. What he is, his ascent to the throne will show. The acceptance of the throne of Spain by the Prince of Holicnzollem will be in effect as much the act of Prussia as of Spain; for, as a mcmlier of tlie rovul family and a Prussian subject, he could not act in the matter without the royal advice and con sent. No difficulty will, it is thought, be made, however, by the Prussian gov ernment. THE COURTS. Seventh District Court—Metropolitan Po lice Warrants. O. M. Redon vs. city of New Orleans.—In this ease plaintiff represents that on the thirty-first of December, 1869, he entered into a contract, by notarial act, with the city of New Orleans, through John R. Conway, Mayor, under resolution of the Common Council No. 1643, new series, whereby it was declared that pursuant to a sale and adjudication by the City Controller, dated December 6, 1869, the city granted and leased the said Redon the right of collecting the revenues of the Sorapuru Market, in the Fourth District, for one year from the first of January, 1870, to the' thirty-first of December following, for the sum of $5875, of whicMuun $489 58 was paid at the time, and for the balance lie lurnished eleven notes of the same amount each, payable to the order of, and indorsed by A. Dumestrc, at the office of the City Treasurer, respect ively, at one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten and eleven months after date. Petititioner alleges further that on the same day he leased the Magazine Market for $30,250 for one year, of which $10,530 83 were paid in cash, and the balance on time as in the former lease. He also alleges that he leased the Ninth Street Market for $11,000, of which he paid $958 33 in cash, and for the balance ga ve his notes as in the former instances. Petitioner alleges that he lias possession of these markets according to his contracts, and has collected the revenues. He says that ou the fourth of June lus outstanding notes, amounting to several thousand dol lars, became due, and lie offered to pay them with Metropolitan Police warrants, which' the city of New Orleans refused to permit him to do. He asks that a judgment be rendered, decreeing that the city shall receive these Metropolitan Police warrants pro tanto in satisfaction and full acquitance of the notes given by him for the leases of the above mentioned markets. Clerkship of the Fourth District Court, Governor Warmoth has appointed Mr. Frank C. Kcmick, clerk of the Fourth Dis trict Court, in the place of Colonel Joseph Hanlon, deceased. It is reported that Mr. Frank Wall, at present principal clerk of the court, and A. J. Wagner, minute clerk, will he retained in the places they now so efficiently fill. Eighth District Court. H. H. Romeyn vs. City of New Orleans et als.—This case, which has been in pro gress for several days before Judge Dibble, was again taken up yesterday. The judge, lawyers anil witnesses bore the infliction with becoming patience, considering the sultry state of the weather. The examination of witnesses will probably be concluded to day, and the distinguished attorneys on both sides will to-morrow have an opportu nity to air their pent up vocabularies by arguments pro ana eon.

OUR FIREMEN IN PHILADELPHIA. Their Farewell Address. ' We copy the following from the Philadel phia Bulletin : Tlie New Orleans firemen left this city for New York last evening, starting from the depot in West Philadelphia. They were ac companied to the train by a large number of Philadelphia firemen. Previous to theft de parture they presented to the members of the Mechanic and Neptune Hose Companies the following address: " Gentlemen of the Philadelphia Fire De partment—We regret that the time lias come to bid farewell to the city of Phila delphia and the Fire Department which has extended hospitalities to the citizens of New Orleans. As our forefathers did in days ot old, we came to you as strangers from afar, but we leuve kind friends behind us who shall never he forgotten. Gentle men, we go home to create an undying love of gratitude between the citizens of New Orleans and those of Philadelphia, hoping that the day may come wlum the Fire Department of Philadelphia and that of the Crescent City will join hands and be held in omnipotence. When looking around that glorious city from whence so much brotherly love has been extended to American citizens, it creates an emotion which can not be expressed l»y man. This occasion will cement the love of Philadelphia and that of the Crescent City. Hoping that the fire department of New Orleans may have the opportunity of extending the hand of welcome, to that of tlie citizens and department of Philadel phia; wishing that you may all live in pros perity, we will, one and aud all, bid you a kind furewell. The New York World thus vividly de scribes the departure of the firemen of New Orleans. The World says: Far down on tlie levee in the old Third District or French quarter of New Orleans stands, facing the quaint thoroughfare forming the river front of that municipality, a neat little two-story building of brick, with gable ends and the merest pretence of a belfry, aud with the words 44 Hope Hook and Ladder Company No. 3," in gilt letters over its front doorway. A mile or two further up town, on St Joseph street, in a quarter consecrated to cotton presses, ware houses and foundries, and where through the hot, livelong summer days one hears tlie stroke of anvils, humming of machinery and jar of heavily laden * drays over the rough cobble stones, stands another and a similar building of brick, resembling in most particulars that first mentioned, save that over its portal one mat read "Moelian k*s' Fire Engine Company So. 6." New Orleans is proud of her volunteer fire department, numbering thirty or more companies, and yearly, on the fourth of March, her people turn out cn masse upon the streets to do honor to its members as they celebrate their annual parade. But never liefore has she sent two of her crack companies—the occupants of the little brick buildings ataive spoken of—a distuncc of nearly two thousand miles away from home, to display tlicir prowess and their manhooc. among tlieii- brother firemen of the other cities of the Union. And so it came that on the twenty-third ultimo a hundred gallant fellows, in red shirts and fire hats, drew up in line at the Pontcliartrain depot and took the cars for the Isike End, carrying with them a hand Engine, polished to a glistening brilliancy, aud covered with wreaths anil silver plate, the trophies of past victories, and a truck of ladders, surmounted by a snow-white life-size figure of Hope, pointing heaven ward. As the train took its departure through the wide, shaded Elysian Fields street to the lake, a thousand hands wared them adieu; a thousand pair of bright eyes looked them "lam voyage;" a thousand hearts prayed for tlieir sate return to their Southern sunny home. Death by Yellow Fever. Tlie Water Valley Vallonian of July 3, contains the following account of a death in that city from yellow fever: A man named Cuinnrins^died in this city on Sunday night last, with yellow* fever. From all the information we could gather, the man it seems, loft New Orleans some two weeks before for Shreveport, Louisiana, hut went by boat a few days after, to Mem phis, where he remained but a few days. On Thursday, of last week, he arrived here, and went to work in the machine shop, be ing a boiler maker. Sunday ho was taken down with what was pronounced at once to be yellow fever, and so rapid was the dis ease that lie died that night. The sudden death of the young man has very naturally given rise to a good deal of anxiety and alarm among a good many of our towns-pcople, for tear that tlie disease would spread. To those who labor under such apprehensions, and for tlie benefit of our readers generally, we would say, that while such an occurrence might be within the range of possibility, that to say the least, it is not at all probable that it will do so. The best medical authorities in the country, and the great minority of physi cians who have hail much to do with the disease, do not regard it as contagious, likd smallpox or scarlet fever, which will spread in a perfectly pure air. while yellow fever will not. We do not apprehend any danger, but it might not be amiss for our citizens to see that all filth is removed from our streets aud from near their residences, so that no local cause may exist to generate disease. General A. J. Hamilton passed through this city a few days since on his way from Washington to Texas.. The Houston Union says .that in his conversation in that city, General Hamilton manifested a bitter oppo sition to the Legislature and all the adminis tration measures of Governor Davis. At Brenham, according to the Hempstead lie porter: He denounced, in the most vile and bitter terms, the course pursued by Governor Da vis and the present Legislature, us uqjust aud oppressive—denounced them as a set of jKilitical Hchcnrists, thieves, scoundrels, cor morants and plunderers—said the militia bill was a gross infringement upon the rights and liberties of our people—was bitterly op posed to this corrupt body voting away millions of the people's money to rings ana railroad speculators—fiivorea public meet ings in every oounty in Texas, denunciary of the course pursued by the present Legis lature, the proceedings of which should be sent to the Congress of the United States and that they would take action upon the same—said that he intended, as soon as he reached home, to tell these Radicals of th *fo rascality to their teeth. Tlie Louisville Courier-Journal says this funnily: It now turns out that if the Natchez had been properly stripped for the race, and had taken on a foil snpply of wood and pine knots and rosin anil turpentine and had started from New Orleans two hours and a half sooner than she did and had run like a scared mule from the start and had lost no time in taking aboard a double-jointed steam saw-mill at Vicksburg nor in landing at Mil liken's Bend to afford the pilot and engineer an opportunity to stroll up town and in quire the price of pntty and hadn't been compelled to stop and have the teeth of tlie mud clerk plugged at Memphis and to lie over and let the chambermaid spend a couple of honrs or so with her great-grand mouter at Colnmbns and had got ahead at Cairo and kept ahead all the rest of the way through with plenty of water in the river and no sign of fog to be seen anywhere, she would have beaten the R. E. Lee to St. Louis so far that it would have been almost equal to no race at all. That's what her friends say, anyhow. We don't encourage suicide, but if any one has lived long enough, and is no longer useful, the example of a suicidal Neapolitan may be useful. He went to the building where the artillery was kept, and lighting the fuse of a loaded cannon, placed himself in front—Boston Post. BY TELEGRAPH.
