OFFICIAL JOURNAL OF THE UNITED STATES OFFICIAL JOURNAL OF NEW ORLEANS TRUK STORY ABOUT (iKNEItAL BUT LEU. Tbc Governor «f New Orleans fhe Bene fnetnr of a Starving Uonvent—The Urn era! a Gentleman to Southern I,allies Who Were Really Sneb—Material for on Appendix to the IliHtorirn! Novel of Air. Murk Pomeroy. [From the Chicago Evening Post. J We are going to write a true story, and a new one. The subject is not very new. and yet not old: it is middle-aged—Benjamin K. Butler. We learned the facts from a source whose integrity is truth itself, and although the General may have forgotten it—it was never before in print—the ladies have not. The ladies ? Yes, there are ladies in it. It is, perhaps, unnecessary to remark that General Butler was once in command at New Orleans. Equally useless is it to say that little good of him was written or thought during his administration of that incorrigible department, aud that his '•treatment" of Southew ladies was de scribed by adjectives of a very severe im port. Malignance in its very worst lorrn found vent at his expense, and "Beast But ler" was the term by which he and his alleged character were best told in those days, both in the North and South. St. Michael's istho name of a pretty little village not hundreds of miles north of New Orleans, on the Mississippi, which in war days was limited to a Convent ot the Sacred Heart, that formed a favorite school lor the daughters of the rebels of £be section. Per haps a dozen dwellings surrounded this main feature of the place, and St. Michael's was rebel from rim to core. Mother Shan non was the Abbess of the convent and the Stijierior of the school. She and her "daughters injrcligion," certainly shared the anti-Yankee sentiment which so sadly strove to ruin them and us in common chaos; but. holding old-time notions of woman's sphere in political broils, they were not loud in thp utterance of their thoughts. This 'did not keep famine from the convent door, however; there came a day when the storehouse was as barren as a Southern field trodden by Morgan's cavalry. The larder shelves were on a line impar tially horizontal; neither fruit, nor tish. nor flesh, nor cereal bore thorn down to tho ac customed curve of heaviness. Hunger al ready stalked among the houses of the vil lagers. and the famished people gathered at the convent gate, clamoring for food. Mere Shannon walked the convent sad and prayerful, telling lier beads. The silent, white-veiled novices flitted about their usual duties, asking not a question, but wondering, perhaps, bow many fast days there would be iu the coming week. The serious black veils, still more thoughtful, gathered about Mere Shannon's chair, when she sat at the evening recreation, and. read ing the query in her eyes, beheld no answer. If the nuns uttered a bon owl that night, it must have been exquisitely spiritual. A loud knocking resounded at the gate, and a messenger appeared, startled, and breathless. A deputation from Donahisou ville, a dozen miles northward on the river, from the house of the Sisters of Charity, waited to know if Mere Shannon would re ceive the sisters and their thirty orphan girls, whose asylum had succumbed to tin fortunes of war, aud who were houseless and hungry at Donuldsonville. Mother Shannon is a brave woman, but she blanched a little. The nuns were aston ished at the newly discovered distress, and for the moment thought only of a "Mon Men," cried Mother Shannon, it is impossible! We have no food; New Or leans is under General Butler, and com munication with the city, so far as the sup plies are concerned, is beyond my power. Much as I may regret it—-—" But she could not send the refusal. The sisters and their Whole flock of orphans were soon as comfortable within St. Mi chael's walls as cheery welcome anil kindly hands could make them. Mother Shannon sat at her desk and wrote something like this: "Sin: We have no food, but we have or phans. Inclosed is a draft tor SffOtiO and atx order which we desire to have tilled, with your permission, at New Orleans." A faithful colored man was the deputation who bore this document to Beast Butler. The general asked it few questions: the contraband proved intelligent, and Ha Beast learned the situation. A day or two later a supply train reached St. Michael's, and the messenger was intrusted with a note from the Beast, which read something like this: "Madam: I am sincerely sorry you and your charge should sutler innocently by this cruel- war. Should other misfortune's reach you, please inform me at once." The supplies sent were found to be just double the quantity of each article ordered: and although the draft was not returned. $'-JOOO in cash came in its place, and sup ported the thirty orphans through later and more bitter times. -'Few knew of this action of General Butler, aud lie never told it. On many succeeding occasions lie was called upon in the same straightforward, womanly way for aid and protection, and in every instance were both given, justly and with the courtesy of the gentleman. The children of rebel soldiers, fallen on the Wrong side of cruel war, had reason to know what a strange kind of beast --Beast" Butler was at New Orleans, and the nuns' notion of "Yankees" were verx materially modified. Mother Shannon's idea became gradually: "When General Butler finds Southern ladies who do not forget that they arc such, they tiud General Bullet a gen tle man." An American l';c Ai tea Washington.

General 1'leasnutou says he has not examined tin- statistics on this point, though In- doubted the correct ness of tin- -tatenn-ut. as. under the one thousand u -liar exemp tion. there were seven hundred thousand liable to the tax, ami it hardly - :ned prob able that there were not more than tie number mentioned by th - Sena*--" a- ha- h ; in annual income of over :i. ■ tiionsaue dollars.

Mr. Campbell renewed bis motion to refer fhe bill creating flic Louisiana State Deposit Bank, and providing for a depositary of public funds, to a special committeo of !ive. to iie appointed b\ the Chair. Mr. Blackman : 1 do not wish to take up the time of the Senate unnecessarily in the discussion of this bill; but, I must protest against its reference to a special committee, when we have a standing Committee on Banks aud Banking, to whom it should pro perly b« referred. It lias been the custom, in the United States Senate, and in every other Senate, when a Senator proposes to take out of the hands of a standing com mittee a bill which should appropriately be considered by them, to regard it as a direct assault upon the chairman of that standing committee and its members. 1 look upon the motion made bv the Senator from the Second District as a direct assault upon tho members of tho Committee on Banks and Banking, and myself a * chair man. 1 can not see the propriety of having any standing committees at all. lor the pur pose ot examining into the various measures of interest and importance to the people of the Mate which como before this body, if select committees are 1o lie appointed to investigate every bill winch may lie deemed extraordinary. It is to be presumed that the Committee qu Banks and Banking is composed of Skim tors who know more of financial manors than the rest of the .Senate. It is to be presumed that they are devoting their time and attention to that particular subject, and. therefore, will be better able to investigate this matter pro perly than any otln-r tive Senaton. If this bill is taken away from tli.it committee, with whom it -properly belongs, we will then consider ourselves but tiie shadow of a committee, while the substance is some where else. This is one of the committees that have been awarded to tk-< minority on this floor: aud after tin* Semite lias agreed to give that committee certain rights and privileges, 1 say that it is a direct reflection upon them to take away any portion of tlu-lii. If this motion prevails, it will leave the Committee on Banks mid Banking with out any authority, without any power, and without any employment. If the gentle man wishes to take away from its those lits and privileges which he has agreed to give us, let him do so; blit 1 tell him now that there are two-edged swords which cut in both directions. Ii his motion is adopted, then 1 am in favor of going back to the old custom, amt letting the President of the Senate appoint all the standing committees. I am tired of seeing the rights and privileges couferiod upon the standing committees taken away from them. If the Senators wish to cast a personal re flection upon the minority in this body, who have bu* live committees, and desire to take away from them all the rights they have, it is hi their power to do so; but 1 tell them that iu the future we will try to take care of ourselves. I hope the Senator will per mit this bill to go An t!ie Committee on Banks aud Bankingjw hero it properly be longs; and 1 pledge my word that the com mittee will report upon it conscientiously. If it is a good bill we will not object to it. It'it is one which meets with our disappro bation, it in only the opinion of three >: four Senators, and the majority of the Senate, if it so de-ires, can pass it over our heads. We can not control th - legislation ot the Senate; we can not prevent this bill from passing and becoming a law, if the majority tavors li. -I hope the gentleman will r uoydinari motion Mr. Campbell: I liav • nothing to say it to den ; any dis on Banks and Banking, of v Claiborne i In making ti enied by.the the whole lin w ith it. 1 re t w o :ig ami beci uniug ; s li. -i hop e the g i- lc- presse s this v Campbell: I 2k. to tilt- g) •UtlCIll; ig any iu? 1'iitmu ct to ibc st a tilling of ' v.'iii* ■ii Hi ic goutlciiiiin from n niPtiilicr, ami tin- iffiaitman. ;is mot: :on.

Mr. lhorce said that lie agreed with the Senator from Claiborne (M '• Blaekniaiit. The ('ouimitti-o on Bank* and Banking had lnoii intrusted with the investigation of matters of this kind, and lie thought that no benelirial result i oukl he obt lined from a reference of the bid to a select committee. The standing committee had. at least, a legislative interest in the matter. For tlie-e reason ho should vote, as le- del the other day, against, the ippointnn-n* of :, syei ini committee. Mr. Burbei- Both of th-- gentlemen, w ho oppose each other on the question inn br forc ns, argued, when the *iiie.,iu>n of elect ing the standing committees caiiic up. that the power of appointing committees be longed to the Semite aioue; that the Senate had tlie light to appoint any and every committee, and t-> do judgment seemed be en.I- it bad in view.

Mr. Bowman: The matter waa before me as the acting chairman of the Committee on Claims. I investigated the matter fully, and I can see no propriety in deferring it. Mr. Kay: I desire to know whether the Senator from Jefferson (Mr. Todd) is correct in saving that this matter is before the courts. It would, of course, be improper for the State and the parish both to lie called upon to pay the claim. Mr. Camplw-11: I would ask the chairman of the Committee ou Claims what was tin nature of the proofs furnished the commit tee us to the work done. Mr. Bowman: All the vouchers were laid before the committee and if was proved that, these claims were unsatisfied, and that the claim was a just one.

Mr. Twitched ealled up the bill creating the parish of Wnrmotli, with amendments, and moved that t!n> amendments lie adopted. Mr. Lewis presented a remonstrance from citizens of tin- tow n of Natchitoches against the proposed partition of tile parish. Mr. Twitcludl: Tlirongh the courtesy of my colleague I have had an opportunity of examining the petition, and apart from the tact that nearly all the signatures appear to be in the same handwriting, I may say that 1 am very familiar with that portion of tin parish that is proposed to be taken off', and 1 do not find one single name from #hat territory affixed to the petition. Mr. Lewis: It seems to me the gentleman lias not lived there long enough to make the in qiiuiutauce of these names. I am told that iu the Third Ward the feeling is almost unanimous against it. Mr. Jeiiks: 1 ask it this bill was drawn lit) in response to a petition from the inhab itants to bu embraced within this new parish. I see there is a remonstrance pre sented against it. and I would like to in quire if there lias been any petition in its favor. Mr. Barber: There was n > •petition. It was presented by the Representatives of that parish, aud it lav several days before the. committee without objection, and the Representatives from the district artfeted reported favorably upon ilff 'fhe presenta tion of the remonstrance to-day was the lirst 1 knew oi auv one being opposed to it at ail. Mr. Jonh-: I will make the same motion with regard to this bill as 1 made with refer ence to a similar bill from another part of the Stab—that :t be recommitted. I suggest, also, that the remonstrance be sent back to the committee, rt order that the wishes of the people may be l -uily know ii and investigated. I disclaim any p.-rsouu) interest in this matter, but 1 waut to do that which the people want done. Mr. Lewis seconded the motion. Mr. Twichell: This is a loatti-x which ha* been canvassed very largely. Itjijwas laid before Senator Thomas before he left for home, and those who know anything about the matter know with what earnestness ibis matter lias be,-n pie-sed bet in- the committee. Mr. Lewis: When this bid wa- cal!,-*! rip before, I asked delay lo gi i t'ae opinion of the parish. I did not wish delay iroiii auv personal motive, but really • did not know whether this new parish wa- wanted or not. I thus notified my friend Twiteln-il that tiler*- would probably be a i• mon-tram •• against tlii* bjll. and .le- ha- had plenty of time to gi-t up a petition in i:- favor. The tact that no stn li petition lias h. i-a pn - sruted show* me that t V new .-h is h,,j wanted. Mr. Sy.di.-r: ! have fi.i- in iiami-: and there an- probably - one twenty-five or tiurty mum - whi-!i I ei-n sider very good, but on the w!e«b- I verx limeli object to the peiition. on tin- groiin-1 that it i- not got up in alphabetical form, and it appear- to be all in -m- handwriting, It is furthci more ) -ry eii-an. a- i: had not ....... inuili handled. I shall more ?-i refer it to some committee to get ;t iri :;i alpha betieal form. Mr. Ingrahain: I have looked v*-rv e.ii— fully into tin-petition, and while 1 may be opposed to tin- proposed Halm: of the new parish. 1 alii not opposed to the p;,- i-h its,-l;.

Mr. Lewis remarked that the petition was addressed to Mr. Blunt, who said h<5 knew that manof those living in the upper part oem-ve in liv ing in of Natchitoches were opposed to the pro posed incorporation. After a motion of Senator Rav to change the name of the parish from Warmoth to Red River, the bill was passed. [TO HE CONTINUED.] DEBATES OF THE HOUSE. . Thursday, February 1*7 1 .
