A Cost i. y Experiment.— The experiment of Martin Junes in endeavoring to learn how honest Josephine Ryder might he. turned out rather expensive. The Ryder is a guttersnipe of Dryndes street, and the Martin is a bird that Buttered into her vile nest Wlien he went in he carried $635* but when he went out his pocket was empty, win -( fore he swears that the woman robbed him, but l»c is the only witness. Circum stances and presumption are against Jo sephine. consequently Recorder Houghton scut her down for trial. The prosecutor's experiments in philosophy have ceased, be cause his opinion is that all women of her class are dishonest. Lizzie Owen and Sarah Jane, a pair of the worst bads of Dryades street, arrested three times in two days for stealing and exercising tlieir villianous powersof speech, were yesterday fined ten dollars each ln Recorder Houghton. Just as long as they are at liberty, so long is a cell in the Peni tentiary robbed of its dues; they are the vilest of the vile. John Toner will have a hearing on the third proximo for stealing $300 from P. W. Tucker.'a lodger in Cassidy's saloon on Gra vier street. It will be then explained how he did it. Collation or the Campbell Guards.— The Campbell Guards (Company D, Second Regiment of Louisiana Militia), gave a col lation on Tuesday and Wednesday eve nings at Turner's Hall, l)eibigny street. A large company was collected on both eve nings. and the arrangements being in excel lent taste, they all enjoyed the occasion to the utmost. The collation, "which reflects great credit on all concerned, was arranged under the supervision of the following ladies and gentlemen: Mesdanu^ Barber, Wheeler. Morgan, Brown. Mitchell; and Messrs. Woodward, William Jenkciis. Joseph Clarke. Charles Slade, Simon Diggs, Oscar Gregoire, R. Semmons and Peter Scot*. The room was tastefully decorated with banners aud appropriate emblems. The company of Campbell Guards was organized last June, and numbers one hun dred aud forty members. The commissioned officers are: Captain/Reuben T. Wheeler; First Lieutenant, Frank Murray; Second Lieutenant. Adolph liochter. A Six-Foot Confidence Man. — A stranger has appeared here in the confi dence role, but thus far obtained only small sums, although his 'style is heavy, lie dropped into a largo clothing store on St. Charts street, making an excuse that he was a relative of a former proprietor, say ing that he had just arrived from Bordeaux as master of a vessel loaded with preserved fruit, and wished to send a ease of delica cies to Mr. S.'s wife, lor auld lang sync. After some talk, lie asked for a new vest, having donned which he, asked the tavor ot a loan of twenty-five dollars. Fortunately thore were only two dollars in the store, and it was too early to go to hank. There fore he only made the vest and money. In another place lie tried the "mm 1 ' rela tion" dodge, assuming the gentleman's name, but this time he failed in his effort*, as the gentleman is blind to kin folks from distant parts. He was heard of in the City Hotel and at the Waverly House, where he failed to pay for the bread he ate. This same fellow, or one not unlike him. visited some commercial houses and made bills amounting to about ten thousand dol lars. but he failed to capture any of tho bills. His style seems to have been to order a fine bill of goods and, before finishing, to obtain small sums of money irom the es tablishment by way of loans on account. How much he secured is not known, but it is pretty certain that in no instance were tho goods shipped to his home in Texas, as lia was running rather strong on that State. Another of his tricks seems without aim, yet he doubtless intended victimizing mon eyed men. He called at Mr. Pike's banking house, on Camp street, offering six pounds of gold dust for sale, hut the bank is not buy. ing that common article. He was directed to Mr. Newman, a money broker, where he spoke of his dust, but didn't show it. Hence, there waif no transaction. In one place he is described as about six feet higfi, ono front tooth out, wearing a Mexican hat, gray pantaloons, dark coat, light colored mustache, and sandy com plexion. We wish to warn our merchants against this man, as he is an impostor. Metropolitan Police Assessments.— The new assessments of the Metropolitan Police Board are under last year's figure. The city of New Orleans $80,332 60;^ Car rollton $7500; St. Bernard parish $4100; Jefferson parish, right bank, $5500; left bank $-000. Thus it will be seen that there is a decrease in expenses, while there will be no captain in the eighth precinct here after, as a sergeant can readily take charge ,«f the little business in that section. Paid for being Arrested.— Wednesday night a worthy eitizen fell so far from grace as to nearly reach a street gutter in drunk enness. As usual in such eases, he was un able to account for the irregularity. For tunately. he was found by Officer Boyle, who escorted him to Captain Schreiber's best cell. Before ho was locked up Twester Beg^cs searched him, as is the custom. A fine-old watch and chain, several hundred dollars aud valuable papers were taken from his pocket and taken care of. Yester day the Citizen's senses returned, when he lelt greatly surprised on seeing all ms property preserved. His gratitude toward Officer Boyle found vent in offering a hand ELLENT IDBA.-Among the pro tbe new assessment by the Metro olice Board is an item appropria* ing a small sum of money to purchase a steam launch for harbor service. It is ex pected that two men will handle her, and that she will not consume more than three bushels of coal daily. This will be pre ferable to the present system in several ways, especially as the expense will be less than for a boat as now run; moreover far more efficient. The yawls now in vogue require four men at the oars and one in the stern, and much time is lost in handling the craft. A small steam launch will perform more service and at less expense; therefore the projectors, if they find the, experiment a success, will soon purchase a second one. There is no doubt in the minds of practical men that the idea is a good one, and will prove beneficial to shipping at the wharves, but rough on river thieves. Brief Mention.— W. F. Rrown, a host lei. was arrested last evening, and charged with attempting to kill Thomas Nichols. Eighty dollars were stolen from the resi dence of Mrs. A. Gomez, Algiers, by a bur glar. Mary Campbell, a servant in the family, wa> suspected of knowing too much, for which she was arrested. Henry Ilegros, chief engineer of that pub lie vehicle labeled Japanese Tommy .is owner of some fat chickens. Some* fellow, who covets las neighbors' wealth, chose tlie dead hour of night to rob the roost, but Henry s dogs sued out a writ of mandamus and frightened the thief, after raising the entire vicinity. We have two communications from the spirit land from the late owners ol two skeletons found in unusual places in thi citv. Murder is coming out. Criminal Court.— Vincente Simondellio was yesterday on trial for murdering Rosario Dimii belli, on tlie tenth of March, ill Place d'Armes. Tlie jury was locked up. The Grand Jury brought in the following bills: A true bill against Supervisor of Registra tion Thomas Lynne, tor willfully and maliciously, with intent to deprive a citizen of his right of snfirage (lie being entitled thereto), refusing to grant registry aud cer tificate thereof. Against Oscar Bart, a true bill on the above charge. The bail in tho ease of Officers Brown. Coughlin and Champagne, first precinct, charged with false imprisonment and rob bery. against whom a true bill lias been found by the Grand Jury, wastixed at $11MH) for each of the accused, which was given out eleven i 'clock they the Kki'URI K vv. which hree hearty cheers. A was at the head of tin* Fourth Ward Club.— The Fourth Ward Republican Club was out in great toree last night, and the members paraded the streets till a late hour. A1 passed the office of they saluted with I fine band of music club, and banners with significant mottoes abounded. One thing we noticed—no minors were among them. Every one in the procession meant a vote at the coming election. _ _ D. McKeever was yesterday arrested for making too much noise, and taking posses sion of a room connected with the Jesuits church, on Baronue street. He was cm p ha tie in asserting that he was the I'ope, and it took three officers to arrest him. His brain was crazed with whisky. Gottlieb Farmer was last night charged with abusing a woman, whose husband works for him. at the corner of Broad and Poydras streets. Captain Schreiber and Judge Houghton visited the house, having heard that the woman was badly injured, but the story was without serious fotfpda tion. Fall at the Gas Works.— Last evening a mail named Thomas Coleman, who was employed to do some repairing at the Gas Works, fell from a ladder at a considerable height from the ground, breaking three ribs and receiving other injuries, two of the broken ribs having pierced a lung. He was at once conveyed to the Charity Hospital, and died about fifteen minutes after liis ar rival. McWade's Itip Van Winkle. The Albany £ ten in;/ Journal, one of the most carefully conducted papers in the country, says of tlie Rip ii in Winkle of Mr. MeWade, who will appear at the Academy next Monday evening : Mr: Robert MeWade made his first ap pearance before an Albany audience last evening, at the Opera House, in the role of Kip Van Winkle. The play of Kip Van Winkle has become so associated in the minds of play-goers witj* Joseph Jefferson, that to hear of any one else assuming the character of the delicious Dutchman, pro duces a new a fid strange sensation. We feel as if somehow a liberty was being taken, a violence being done to the estab lished order: aud yet. admiring the boldness which ventures to ruu a muck against the canon. "Jefferson first aud the rest no where." we give the new Rip a hearty reception. Mr. MeWade was greeted with the most hearty applause as he first came on the stage, and all during the performance he had tho happy and in spiring consciousness of carrying his audi ence with him. His version of Irving's legend differs in some points from that of Mr. Jefferson. Tlie introduction of the dog "Snyder" in the second act. tied to a bush, and the reappearance of all that is left, of the canine twenty years after, suspended from a tall tree, is a capital innovation. Snyder does not appear at all in .Mr. Jeffer son's rendering. Mr. MeWade speaks broken English per fectly, ami is up in-tlic Dutch dialect, and no mistake. His Dutdi-EugUsli conglomera tions were very humorous, calling forth: the heartiest laughter. Kip Van Winckle will be produced every night this week, and if the general satisfaction and delight ex pressed on the part of the large audience of last evening is any criterion. Mr. Mo Wade's Albany engagement will be a distinguished success. Opening of the sit. Charles Theatre. This old and favorite establishment will open on Monday evening next with an en tire new company, under the management of Mr. J. W. Albaugh. The following ladies and gentlemen will comprise I tlie stock company: Mrs. Mary Mitchell Albaugh, Miss Anna Morris. Miss K ite Singleton, Miss Lizzie Herbert. Mrs. E. G. Cole, Mrs. B. Do Bar, Miss Kate Shurbert. Miss Lizzie Moore, Misses Cook, Pont ine, Ross, Wilson land Grey; Mr. J. W. Albaugh, John Morton, John Davis. Mark Quinliu, W. Fleming. R. G. Wilson. K. A. Kendal, Fred Howard. Harry Holmes, H. Turek, Joseph Hamilton, T. Kinuy, W. McIntosh. The opening performance will embrace "Bill Eustaehe" aud "Tootlles." Ben, De Bur will appear as Toodlvs. Odd Fellows' Ball.— Delta Lodge* No. 15, and Louisiana Lodge, No. 1, will jointly give a grand masquerade, fancy dress, and calico ball, at Odd Fellows' Hall, on Satur day night, for the benefit of the widows aud orphans' fund of their treasuries. Messrs. T. J. Emler, E. Wetzel, D. Negrptto, Jr., and M. O. Connors, of Delta Lodge, and S. Barnes, J. E. Lockwood, J- F. Bremer and J. F. Givan, of Louisiana Lodge, are the managers.

The Phil Sheridan Irish Republican Sub Club will meet at Geildes' Hall this even ing. to arrange for taking part in the grand Republican demonstration at Lafayette square, on Saturday evening, the tilth ot November (to-morrow week). As this de monstration is next to the very eve ol elec tion. it will he. no doubt, the biggest ot the mnuv big Republican turnouts during the present campaign. Fourth District Irish Republican Club. The Fourth District Irish Republican Club held their regular weekly meeting at Temperance Hall, last Wednesday evening. General I). T. Kirby, the president of the club, was in the chair, and eloquent ad dresses were made by Judge C. P. Carr. Messrs. J 1 '. B. Karbari and others. The speakers dwelt upon the duty of every Re publican using his influence among his neighbors to have them register, aud vote the Republican ticket. Abundant reasons were shown why Irish citizens should he the strongest friends of the Republican party—the party that removed the stigma which, iii the South, formerly rested upon labor. The sentiments of the speakers were received with enthusiastic acclamations. Tho club will meet again next Wednesday evening, at the same place. IMPORTANT POLITICAL DISCUSSION. Ileitlf nliuin the Challenger—'T. <«. Noel Accept*. I* will be seen by the following challenge and acceptance, that Hon. Henry Heiden hain, who was one of the most eloquent and logical members of the Louisiana General Assembly, has challenged any member tlie so-called Christian Republican party, any other bolter, to discuss the merits of the I regular Republican part'.-, aiul the demerits j of the bolting party, and that the challenge has been accepted by that fearless cham pion of tin* Christian Republican party, Colonel T.

Remember that he who risks a small sum may win a large one. Suicide in Kansas City. This is a special to the St. Louis Repub lican: Kansas Citv, Mo., October 24.—A young man registered at tlie Broadway Hotel in this city, from New York, put ail end to his life this morning in the following manner: Tlie unfortunate man, determined that liis death should be sure and instant, took two long valise straps and with fearful delibera tion buckled them together, made a slip noose of the buckle, placed it around his neek. and tied tlie other to tlie lied post, then climbing out of the window and seat ing himself on tlie sill, leaning dear out, placed the muzzle of a pistol against liis heart, fired and fell, tin* strap breaking with tlie sudden shock. The shot must have killed him instantly. He had been a photographer. In liis trunk were a number of photographs and several negatives, one of General Grant. He had left that for portrait painting, but liis work was all poor in outline and coloring. Papers in liis trunk showed him to lie a royal arch mason of Markwell Lodge. Chapter 30. Lansing, Iowa. A letter was found from a sister in Lansing signed Mrs. Hewlett. This is from tlie Chicago Tribune: The enumeration of Louisiana, tinder the census of 1870. returns 717,028 inhabitants. Tlie census of 1800 returned 708,002; rlie increase in ten years is only 9024. This is a miserable exhibit for a State containing tin* Southern metropolis. Compare Louis iana with Michigan. The latter had in 1800 a population of 740.113. and lias now 1,191. 401. being an increase of 442.348 in ten years, and she is not a State in which a very large addition was expected. By tho returns now in from tlie South, it is evident tiiat no Southern State will show a large increase of population, except Texas. The accretion in the whole territory south of the Potomac and the Ohio, exclu sive of Missouri, is not likely to exceed a million and a half, or thirteen per cent. Missouri lias gained about half a million, but nearly the whole of this came from the North or from Europe, and Missouri is a Western, anil not a Southern State. Those who were reckoning tlie total pop ulation of the Union at 42.000,000 will he disappointed. We have constantly esti mated it a little over 40,000,000, and begin now to think that it is more likely to fall short of, than to exceed, that number. The Canton, Mississippi, Citizen, says: Last Saturday night, a colored man named John Hines, living on the Prichard place, about six miles east of Canton, was murdered by three young men, who called him to his cabin door, and fired four shots from a pistol at him, each shot taking effect. The man died almost immediately. As far as we c;in learn, this was one of the most un provoked murders that has occurred in this vicinity for years. After committing the murder, they quietly fled, and have uot singe been heard from. The Coroner's verdict was that the de ceased came to his deatli by pistol shots in flicted by the hands of Booker Prichard, John Adams, and another party to the jury unknown. NOTICE OF ELECTION.
