RELIEF OF FRENCH SUFFERERS
A GENERAL COLLECTION TO-MORROW
HUMANITY OF 0UB 0HUB0HES
The following note from J. W. Situonton,
Esq., general agent of the New York Asso
ciated Press, introduces a circular from
Bishop Potter, of New York:
New York, March 10.
To the Press of the United States;
The following, fpr publication, is sent to
you free of tolls by the Western Union Tel
egraph Company.
' J. W. SIMONTON,
General Agent New York Associated Press.
It is hoiied that the clergy of the United
States will not forget that next Sabbath is
the day upon which it is proposed that a
. general collection shall he taken up iu all
churches, for the relief of the French suf
ferers by the late war.
The following letter, from Bishop Potter,
is published by the New Y ork Chamber of
Commerce French Relief Committee, who
express the liojie that similar action will be
taken by the bishops of other dioceses, as
well as by leading members of the clergy
in all denominations:
To th# Clergy aud Laitv of the Diocese of New
York:
Mr Dear Brethren —Your bishop, who
has so otten appealed to you, and never in
vain, for objects of religious interest, ap
peals to you to-day in behalf of a suffering
nation. The French people, who once
stretched out a helping hand to us in our
great need, have been smitten and over
shadowed by a storm of war. Vast por
tions of France have been utterly laid
waste. The mournful remains of desolated
families are lelt by the retiring scourge to
face the horrors of famine and to piepare
for the pestilence which is sure t* break
out in the midst of a vast wreck of physi
cal energies.
Already our ships have been freighted
with supplies to help save the perishing.
At such a moment, you will agree with ine.
that we have nothing to do with political
questions. Yon rejoice to take part iu a
great national effort to minister to the
necessities of a sorely afflicted people. Now
that the war is at an end, it is presumed
that the hearts and the purse of the benevo
lent of all classes of sentiment and opinion
are now open to this appeal. I would,
therefore, most earnestly recommend that
collections be made, if possible, in your
churches on Sunday next, or as speedily as
yonr circumstances will permit; and I
would, moreover, respectfully suggest that
you avail yourself of the agency of said
relielf committee of the Chamber of Com
merce, of which Mr. Charles H. Marshall is
chairman, and Mr. Charles I-anier is treas
urer.
Commendin'; you. dear brethren, to the
blessing of Almighty God, I am, most
atfeetionatelv. vonr triend and brother.
HORATIO POTTER.
Bishpp of New York.
Public atteution is especially directed to
the important sale of choice real estate,
which will be made to-day. at noon, at the
St. Charles Auction Exchange, by G, De
Feriet. auctioneer. The list embraces some''
of the choicest aud best located landed
estate in the city, especially the property
located ou Tivoli Circle and on Delord
street, between St. Charles, St. Joseph and
Canal streets, the whole sold by order of
court for account of the succession of A. B.
James.
At the same time and place will be offered
that desirable business stand No. 186 St.
Charles street, belonging to the succession
of Harvey Guild.
For particulars and terms of sale sec

Valuable Improved Real Estate at
Auction by the Sheriff. —W» call atten
tion to the sales at auction to he made
this day at noon, at the Merchants and
Auctioneers' Exchange, Royal street, by
the Sheriff of the parish of Orleans.
Said sales comprise:
1. A lot of ground, with all the buildings
and improvements thereon, situated on
Bourbon street, between Bienville and
Conti streets. Second District.
2. And a lot of ground, with all the
buildings and improvements thereon, situ
ated on Marignv street, between St. John
the Baptist aud Gired streets. Third Dis
trict.
For full particulars and terms see ad
vertisements.
Valuable Real Estate at Auction.—
Messrs. Nash & Hodgson, auctioneers, will
sell at 12 M. to-day, at thp St. Charles Auc
tion Exchange, in the basement of tlie
rotunda of the St. Charles Hotel, for ac
count of the succession of John George
Gebhart. deceased, a two-story frame house
and twelve lots of ground, on the corner of
Urquliart and Feliciana streets, in the Third
District of this city. See the advertisement
for full particulars.
Young men are often inclined to get mar
ried, but hesitate because they are poor.
One of this kind determined to buy a ticket
in the Louisiana State Lottery and remove
the obstacle to his matrimonial happiness.
He did so aud drew a prize, we are assured,
that will enable him to press to his heart
the woman he prizes above all others.
What the Louisiana State Lottery has done
for him may be done for others if they will
buy tickets and trust to good luck.
A patrolman while ou his beat Thursday
evening grossly insulted a .journalist, whom
he accused of having written something pre
judicial to him: a charge which was untrue,
because our confrere did not know the man
and had never written a line concerning
him. Prompt justice was administered by
the Police commissioners who, yesterday,
dismissed the offending officer from the
force, and thus served him right.
Numerous specimens of sulphur lrom the
Calcasieu .Sulphur Mines are to be seen at
the office of the company. No. 18 Carondelet
street. The treasurer and engineer of the
company will go to Europe soon to contract
for the machinery necessary to commence
mining. _ ___
The general collection tomorrow in the
churches throughout the country, for the
relief of the French sufferers, will result in
large aggregate receipts. It is simply a
question of humanity and not nationality,
for a German may contribute as freely as a
Frenchman.
The prospects of a good summer business
in New Orleans are thought by our mer
chants to be excellent. New Orleans will
yet emerge from the gloom which over
spreads her, and take her plaec among the
enterprising cities of the Union.
Major George L. Gatlin, formerly an
attache of the Crescent, and now connected
with the Erie railroad, was at the Academy
of Music last evening, enjoying the enter*

MEETING OF THE BOARD OF SCHOOL
DIRECTORS.
The recently elected members of the
Board of School Directors met last night, at
No. 39 Burgundy street, for the purpose of
organizing.
As soon as a sufficient number of the mem
bers arrived. Judge H. C. Dibble mounted
the platform and statedfthat he would, in
compliance with the request of several
members, call the board to order. The call
having been properly responded to, he nomi
nated Mr. B. F. Joubert for temporary
chairman, who was unanimously elected.
Mr. Lynne requested the Chair to appoint
a temporary secretary.
Mr. Toy moved' that Mr. Kendall, the
secretary of the old board of directors, lie
appointed to the temporary position.
Mr. Pierce seconded the motion.
Mr. Pinchback seconded the "request" of
Mr. Lynne, that the Chair should appoint.
Whereupon the Chair appointed Mr.
Boothbv (member from the seventh dis
trict) to the position.
Judge Dibble suggested the propriety of
appointing some person for secretary who
was not a member of the board.
Mr. Boothbv took his place at the secre
tary's desk, and the temporary organization
was declared by the Chair to be perfected.
Ou motion of Mr. Dibble, a,coiumittee of
two was appointed to examine the creden
tials and qualifications of members, and in
structed to report immediately. The Chair
appointed Messrs. Dibble and Halm as the
committee, who, after tho proper examina
tion, reported the following gentlemen as
duly appointed and qualified: First dis
trict, Michael Hahn; second district, H. C.
Dibble: third district. Thomas Lynne; fourth
district. P. B. S. Pinchback; fifth district.
John R. (Hay; sixth district. B. F\ Joubert;
seventh district, C. W. Boothbv; eighth dis
trict. J. B. Cooper; ninth district, J. T.
Jackson; tenth district. James Longstreet;
eleventh district. E. W. Pierce; twelfth dis
trict. Lucius C. Matlack: thirteenth district,
W. H. Toy. Mr. John S. Walton. Adminis
trator ot Finance, is ex-officio a member of
the board.
All the above named gentlemen were pre
sent. aud answered to their names except
Mr. Walton.
The Board then proceeded with the busi'
ness of permanent organization. Messrs. Dib
ble and Matlack were respectively nominated
for president. Mr. Dibble received eleven
votes aud Mr. Matlack two; whereupon Mr.
Dibble was declared elected and escorted
to the chair by Messrs. Pierce and Pinch'
back.
Rev. William Kollinson and N. T. Kendal*
were nominated as oanQidates for the office
of secretary: Rollinson received eight votes,
Kendall lour, and blank one. Mr. Kollinson
|&is declared elected.
w§Ir. Ilahn called the attention of the
board to the necessity of making an esti"
mate of the probable amount that will be
required to support the schools for the en
suing year. He moved that a committee of
three be appointed to make the estimate.
Carried.
The Chair appointed Messrs. Hahn, Clay
and Pierce. They wiil report on Monday
next.
On motion a committee of three, to draft
rules, was appointed, consisting of Messrs.
Hahn. Boothbv and Pinchback.
Adjourned to meet on Monday, at seven
o'clock, at the Council chamber, at the City
Hall. _ _
The President'# Policy.
We cony the following special to the St.
Louis Republican:
Washington, D. C., March 7.—The joint
committee of the Senate and House who
called on the President simply reported
that lie had uo communication to make to
Congress now, but might have in the course
of a week: but the President, nevertheless,
submitted some reasons why Congress
should continue in session. One was, that
he expected to convene the Senate in ex
traordinary session at an early day, as he
was quite confident that the Joint High
Commission would satisfactorily conclude
its labors, and submit the result through
him to tho Senate. Another reason, to his
mind, w.is the condition of affairs in the
South, which certainly demanded additional
legislation. He had received from the Gov
ernor ot a Southern State a letter stating
that eleven Republicans had been mur
dered in one day, while the mails had to be
susi>cnded between Frankfort and Louis
ville. Kentucky, because of Ku-Klux
outrages on a colored mail agent.
He stated that he was quite powerless under
the present laws to prevent this state of
things, and required action on the part of
Congress. He said nothing about pro
tracting the session to await the return of
the San Domingo commissioners. It is un
derstood that the select committee of the
Senate on the alleged outrages in tho South,
wliich was continued in service by the
Senate, have a bill nearly prepared to sup
press them, which will i>e reported to tue
Senate next week and pressed to a vote
before aft adjournment. The Democrats in
the House, however, will very generally
oppose to the last extreme any legislation
of this character.
Van Eeten Attempt# Muielde.
A New York dispatch says:
The forger, Lewis M. Van Eeten, upon
whom a sentence of imprisonment for nine
years was pronounced by Recorder Ilackett
on Friday, was to bo oonveyod to Sin" Sing
direct from the courtroom, but he plouded so
earnestly that one night's delay was granted
him. It*appears that he sought the delay
in order to suicide, as the officers found
when they came to remove him next day
that he had taken morphine. The dose was
not effectual, however. His term of impris
onment, under the present sentence and
that which will undoubtedly be pronounced
against him in Saw Francisco, will be twenty
three years.
The Chicago Tribune has this brief no
siee:
The resignation of two gentlemen elected
to the United States Senate for six years
each is somewhat a novelty in political
history. In each case the Senator-elect is
Governor of his State, and resigns the sen
atorship to remain Governor. It is some
what remarkable, also, that each of these
gentlemen- sought the office very earnestly,
and obtained it only after a verv protracted
contest. One abandons a seat for six years
in the Senate to remain Governor of Missis
sippi for four years, and the other to re
main Governor of Arkansas for two years.
These resignations show a patriotic devo
tion to the State interests which is almost
without precedent.

Mr. Morton's Ku-Klux bill proposes to
transfer the jurisdiction of cases of murder
and other violence to the United States
courts, and to try them before iuries, on
which no person who can not take the test
oath should he allowed to sit. and to pro
vide a sufficient number of troops to sus
tain all officers in the execution of the law.
Mr. Beck introduced an amnesty bill to
day in the House. Mr. Farnsworth sup
ported it iu an earnest speech.
The Senate confirmed the nominations of
commissioners upon loyal claims.
Tlie outrage committee reported, sum
ming up as follows: Ku-Klux do exist,
and is composed of members of the Demo
cratic or Conservative party: it has a polit
ical purpose, and sought to carry its pur
poses by murders, whippings, intimidation
and violence against its opponents. It
binds its members to carry out decrees of
crime, and protects them against conviction.
The minority report is also quite long
and conclusive:
Tlie number of these outrages, detestable
and wicked as they are, is. nevertheless,
grossly and wildly exaggerated, and this
uo one can doubt who will examine the tes
timony. and has any knowledge of the credu
lity Hud inaccuracy of statement, character
istic of our well meaning colored people.
North Carolina is one of the largest States,
territorially, in the Union, and is divided
into eighty-seven counties, and contains
nearly 1.500,000 people.
No act of lawlessness is actually proven
to have been committed excepting in one or
tho other of six or perhaps eight of these
counties: aud it is proposed to employ vio
lent and stringent measures of coercion
and repression to the remaining nino-tentlis
of a State against which no breath of evi
dence or proof of lawlessness has ever been
adduced, but which, on the contrary, ex
hibits a condition of quiet almost suggest
ing the insensibility of despair. What can
be alleged ? What gratification to the
American people can be urged for the re
newed and wanton invasion of a peaceful
community
The statement that anarchy there exists
is absurdly untrue, and the testimony now
laid before the Senate overwhelmingly es
tablishes its untruth. If aggressive laws
are to he enacted let all disguise be east off,
and tlie true reason avowed: it will not be
less violent or less wrong, but it will not be
hypocritical, aud will be more manly. To
any fair minded man we confidently com
mit the proofs contained iu the testimony
now presented by the committee, and aver
that in the faee of such wrongs as have
been intiieted upon our unfortunate and
crushed people by the rulers placed over
them, not bv their own consent, but by the
exorcise ot' despotic powers by the Con
gress of the United States.
No example of equal submissiveness and
patient endurance can be found in history
as is now presented by the people of the
State of North Carolina. This is the truth
in a nutshell: That Holden and his official
supporters have failed to maintain them
selves by any means, foul as well as fair, iu
their State. * They have appealed to popu
lai elections, and have been rejected with
something near to unanimity by every tax
payer in the State, and now Congress is
asked to step in and force North Carolina
down under the feet of her radical
master, and we fear that Congress
will attempt to do this unwise and wicked
thing. Will the people of the North, free
as vet, see this tiling done and sustain its
promoters ? We hope not: we pray not.
When will the men now in power learn the
truth of what the great statesmen of pur
country said so wisely and well, when sim
ilar attempts were maile to govern British
India: It is the nature of tyranny and
rapacity never to learn moderation from the
ill success of oppression. On the contrary,
all men, thinking highly of tho methods
dictated, by their nature, ascribe the
frustration of their desires to the want
of sufficient vigor. Then they redouble
the efforts of their impotent cruelty, which,
producing as they must produce, new
disappointments, they now initiated against
the objects of their rapacity and then venge
fury and malice .implacable because un
provoked, and reinforcing their avarice
their vices are no longer human: from oruel
men they become savage beasts, with no
other vestige of reusoBleft but what serves
to furnish the incentives and refinements of
ferocious subtlety, for purposes of which
beasts are incapable and at which fiends
would blush.

This action settles Mr. Cameron as the head
of the foreign affairs committee.
The Senate went into executive session.

salt has been loaded with'amendments to
kill it. Mr. Kelly finally moved as an
amendment tho whole tariff bill, and de

on the part of the minority. The committee
recommend the appointment ot a suh*cffm

five members on the subject of the con
struction and maintenance of a complete

recess.
Mr. Dawes objected to the last clause of
the resolution.
Mr. Morey explained that the committee
would sit without any expense to the
government.
Mr. I)awes,reniarked that in that case it
would be indeed a select committee.
[Laughter.]
The resolution was modified so as to pro
vide that there should be no expense to the
government iu connection with the com
mittee. and, so modified, it was adopted.
This makes a levee committee in both
houses, not joint, however.

Mr. President, I feel most happy to be
the bearer of a letter from mv most gra
cious sovereign to your Excellency, con
veying the notification' that, at the un
animous request of the sovereigns of tho
German States and of the cities of Ger
many to asstrtne the ancient title of Em
peror after the German empire had been re
established by the union of the German
States under'one constitution, my august
sovereign has considered it as a duty to the
common fatherland to accept thankfully this
dignity conferred by the confidence of his
German confederates upon his Majesty
and his successors to the throne of Prussia.
In having the honor to present his Majesty's
letter to your Excellency, it needs no new
assurance" from me that the Emperor and
United Germany desire to maintain, as
heretofore, their friendly relations with the
government and people of the United
States, for whose happiness and welfare
they have always entertained the most sin
cere wishes.
The President made the following reply :
Baron Gerolt, the notification which you
have conveyed to me relates to an event of
great historical importance. The States of
this Union, which severally bear relation to
the other, bear that whichJPrussia bears to
other States of Germany which have re
cently made such sacrifices and efforts to
ward maintaining the integrity of their
common country for general purposes iu
peace aud war. That they can not fail
to sympathize iD similar proceedings for a
like object elsewhere. The new title which
lias been accepted by your sovereign may
l>e regarded as the symbol, and the fulfill
ment on its part by Germany. The dispo
sition which you express on behalf of the
Emperor of United Germany to maintain
unimpaired its friendly relations with the
government and people of the United States,
is heartily reciprocated.
