The work of pumping out the city still goes on steadily. At present about eight and a half millions of cubic feet of water per hour is thrown out into the canals. The water had fallen, yesterday at three o'clock, a little more than twenty-five inches from the highest point. It is, of course, constantly receding in consequence of the means applied. Mr. Cockrem, Ad ministrator of Improvements, lias chartered the New Orleans Wrecking and Salvage Company's steamer Osage, Captain Ander son. This steamer had yesterday a twenty, inch pump at work, capable of throwing out about a million gallons per hour, and Cap. tain Anderson was putting up another twelve-inch pump, which was probably ready late last evening. Mr. C. S. Hunt has a twelve-inch pump, worked by a portable engine, which throws OHt a steady stream. E. M. Ivens has an engine also on the spot, with two pumps. Neither was at work yesterday afternoon, but one was about ready and the other was in the course of being put up. All this machinery, in addition to the Bienville Draining Machine, will clear the city of water in a short time if the pumps are kept at work. The city hires the laborers and engineers and sends rations to them on the spot, so that there need be no cessation of work un less caused by unavoidable accident. The water in the New canal has probably fallen two feet from the highest point, but is yet a few inches above the present level of Hagan avenue canal. Administrator Cockrem and Colonel Roy give their personal attention to the work, and keep a watchful eye upon every move ment. And as no water worth mentioning comes in from the canals, we may reasonably expect a dry city again before the end of this week. ^ Cottoa Movements. Dispatches to the city papers of Monday morning in reference to cotton movements are as follows: New York, June 11.—The cotton move ment shows a continued decrease, especially in receipts, which are the smallest since the height of the season. Exports are a little below last week, but nearly double the cor responding week last year. Receipts at all the ports, 28,136, against 36,402 bales last week. 40,178 the previous week, and 45.067 three weeks since. Total receipts since September, 3,821,180, against 2,792,879 for the corresponding period the previous year. Exports from all the ports, 42,323 bales, against 22,962 last year. Total ex ports for the expired portion of the cotton year, 2,982,841, against 1,982,841 tor the same time last year. Stock at all the ports, 235,508. against 263,886 same time last year. Stock at interior towns, 21,511, against 48,324 last year. Stock at Liverpool. 914,000, against 603,000 last year. Aroer ean cotton afloat for Great Britain, 206,000, against 155,000 last year. Indian cotton afioat for Europe. 415,147. against 328,180 last year. The weather South has been rainy in some sections. Severe storms existed iu portions of Louisiana, Mississippi, Georgia, Alaba ma, North and South Carolina. They have done much damage to the growing plant, and undoubtedly decreased the yield of cotton. Southern planters have had nothing but reverses and drawbacks since the grow ing crop was planted, aud it would seem from the weekly reports of the weather that rain enough hud fallen in the Southern States to deluge the whole country. These reports must be exaggerated to some extent, because, if true in detail, then it would be impossible to expect anything but a total iailure of the cotton crop. The Express says: "The sales for the week reached 100,000 bales, of which 78,000 bales were for future delivery and 22,000 bales on the spot aud to arrive Of spot cot ton exporters took about 1450 bales, spinners 9650. and sjieculators 2440. The Cotton Ex change election resulted in choice of man agers satisfactory to the whole trade. The new board is composed of seven commis sion merchants, four exporters and four brokers, all of whom arc eminent for re spectability and high standing in their re spective branches iu the cotton trade. There is every reason to believe that the new board of managers will appoint a commit tee on quotations that will so arrange the quotations for the monthly settlements as to exhibit the entire absence of anything like the 'heathen Chinee' who made his ap pearance so conspicuously in the settle ments of last March." Insanity nnd a Deficit. T. A. McCartney, Superintendent and Dis bursing Officer of the Postoffice Department, who has been in had health for the past year, has been sent to the insane asylum. A deficit has been discovered iu his account to the ambunt of between $30,000 and $40,000. Postmaster General Cresswell was first informed of this state of affairs on Friday of last week, and immediately commenced an investigation. McCartney, on being in terrogated by the Postmaster General, ac knowledged tbe deficit, by saying it was caused by blending public and private busi ness, aud by speculations in water power and marble quarry at and above Harper's Ferry. McCartney told tbe Postmaster General that he did not know tbe precise amount he bad invested in these enterprises, but he assigned the amount whatever it may be. with his other effects, to his sureties on his bonds. In the Department of Justice, which is investigating the subject, it is the opinion that the government will not lose a cent. McCartney is a man of education and culture, a good writer, and successively filled editorial positions on the Morning Chronicle, National Intelligencer and Wash ington Express. The fact is recalled that E. B. Olmstead, McCartney's immediate pre decessor as disbursing agent, was discov ered to be a defaulter to the amount of $65, 000. His lapse appeared to result from aber ration of the mind, produced, it was stated, by the excessive use of opium. St. Charles Theatre. To-night the Orleans Dramatic Relief Association will play the "Marble Heart" at the St. Charles, with a cast that will un doubtedly mark it as one of the most ac ceptable entertainments of the season. The piece is too well known among our play going community to need description; but we are sure that the house will be crowded with an appreciative audience. The pro ceeds are to be added to the fund for the relief of the sufferers by the overflow. A thunderstorm, not long in duration but extremely violent while it lasted, passed over the city last evening, between the hours of eight and nine o'clock. For a while the thunder was incessant and the neighborhood uncomfortably close, as indi cated by almost simultaneous peals and flashes, while the rain poured, seemingly in emulation of the roaring and flashing of the thunder and lightning. In about half an hour the whole was over, and no other indication of the recent atmospherical up roar than a distant grumble from the de parting cloud or a sullen flash of electric light. Long before midnight the stars shone as brightly as if clouds were things unknown. INTERNAL REVENUE DECISION. Stand in* Casks for Spirits can not be Used Without Violating the Law. Written inquiry having been made at the office of the Commissioner of Internal Revenue at Washington as to the right of dealers in spirits to use standing casks in which liquors may settle, the following de cision has been given by the commissioner: OKFICK Of ISTItK.VAr, Rkvsxub ) Washington, May 31,1871. J I do not see why liquors may not be as well settled in tbe casks injwhich they are put up as in the standing casks, nor of the particular properties in the standing casks that will render the spirits fit for consump tion. The rulings on this subject are in strict conformity with law, and have been made because called for by the law, not trom any disposition to inconvenience the trade. The law in this respect has been misun derstood to some extent. It is fair to presume that all spirits on the premises of a dealer are intended for sale, and, therefore, all such must hear one or the other of the stamps required by law or be subject to a forfeiture under section 57, act of July 20, 1868, regardless of the kind of cask in which it may be. Every cask ou being filled must be gauged, marked and stamped at each tilling, and the stamps and marks must be obliterated whenever the cask is emptied. This alone must render it impracticable to nse the expensive and highly ornamental casks known as " stand casks'." and the repeated stamping and gauging that must follow their use must also tend to render it impracticable to use them. The term "cask or package," as used in the law, is understood to mean portable vessels, aud does not include such as are, trom their size or the manner in which they are set up, not portable. A dealer must not draw from any other than a stamped vessel, nor fill any other than a portable one. and must have no vessel in his possess ion containing more than five gallons with out a stamp. On applying these provisions of law, it is seen at once that what is ordinarily known as "stand casks" can not be used as such without violating the law and increasing the hazard of serious consequences to the dealer. If these were mere rules and regulations of this office, they might be modified to meet the necessities of the trade: hut being provisions of positive law, they must remain obligatory upon all alike until changed by the power that made them. A. PLEASONTON, Commissioner. Picnic at Kenner. The long deferred picnic of the Jackson Railroad Mutual Benevolent Association took place on Sunday, and although there was rain a part of the day, in consequence of which some few of the sports were omit ted, yet on the whole the affair was a very pleasant success. The train from the depot at Magnolia street made three trips, heavily laden each time, so that there was a large assemblage of pleasure seekers together, prepared to enjoy anything in the shape of sport that could be brought torward. The picnic was given on the extensive lawn belonging to the plantation of Mr. Hodges, the place known formerly as the plantation of Minor Kenner. The place is well adapted for the purpose, being studded with shade trees, although the long con tinued rain had had its efl'ect. Under a clump of shade trees a large platform was extemporized, with seats and a music stand. Here the dancers enjoyed themselves with a zest that could not be exceeded. There were swings for the youngsters, enjoyed as well, however, by the oldsters: there was rope-jumping by all ages and sizes of both sexes, and, to our mind, this was the most enjoyable of all. The Empire Base Ball Club and tbe " Summer Gang" played a game for a beautiful silver cup. which be came the prize of the Empire club. There were several foot races run for different prizes; but the funniest of all was a sack race of sixty yards distance. This occasioned the most uproarious merriment. Owing to tbe softness oi the ground there was no horse racing; but nobody seemed to regret this, the time was so pleasantly oc cupied with other sports. The dancing, which was going on so merrily, would no doubt have continued to a late hour had not the weather began to look threatening. A considerable number of the visitors from New Orleans had scat tered abroad for the purpose of seeing the town. The approaching shower brought them flying in all directions toward the shelter of the station, anxious for the safety of bonuet and dress. At the same time, those who had remained on the lawn came flocking out, equally anxious to find a place of safety from the rain. The rush, splashing and crowding only seemed to increase the geuerai hi' larity and good humor; and as it is an ill wind that blows nobody good' so mine host at the main coffeehouse was kept busy by a throng such as he is not in the habit of seeing every day. Soon after the train arrived, and there was another bustle to get aboard, although there was no burry and plenty of room. Once started, the excitement of the young fellows in the company expanded itself in song, and a concert arose most remarkable for its ad libitum quality, every one singing a different song. It was about nine o'clock when tbe train arrived at the New Orleans depot and dis' charged its lively freight, there having been nothing to mar the pleasure of the day, ex cept the showers, which added to. rather than diminished the fun. This picnic was given to celebrate the fourth anniversary, and the arrangements were very creditable to the committee, Messrs. F. Fuller, A. B. Somers. D. A. Mul lane and P. L. O'Brien. Our reporter takes occasion to express his thanks to these gen tlemen for many courtesies.

Important Interview With General De Trobriand—Her Only Hope of Salva tion a Republic. [From tbe Cincinnati Gazetted New York, June 9.— The World pub lishes the report of an interview with Gen eral De Trobriand, of the L T nited States army, who has just arrived from France. In the course of the interview he says: "Everything in politics in France now is quicksand—an unsubstantial, treacherous mixture of traditional ideas, private inter ests, prejudices aud irrational theories—and in all this conglomeration of feeling there is no solid ground to build anything perma nent. All may depend on accident. I do not believe legitimacy will be re stored, mainly because all the cities are op posed to it and inclined toward a republic. The strength of that party is the old fami lies in Btittany and the. south of France. The clergy are also favorable to legitimacy in those sections of France, looking to it as their best protection. Tbe peasantry of France are as a mass eminently ignorant, prejudiced aud selfish. Those of them who are iu the hands of the priests or nobles would vote whatever they were told or do anything else blindly for the restoration of a prince, for no other ieason than that they were told to do so. At this moment, if a plebiscite were proposed, a very large nuin her of peasants would vote for the empire, knowing absolutely nothing of anything concerning national concerns. As tor the republicans in the cities, a certain number of them are good, liberal and intelligent men, but they are in tbe minority. A larger number of the republicans of France are impracticable men. The monarchist will never admit a differ ence between one sort of republican and the other. Their constant cry has been of late, "You will see how impossible is a re public in France. As soon as we have a re publican government you will see what it will do by what is going on in Paris" (al luding to the communists). So, although the communists in Paris were fighting the republican government, the monarchists al ways say that it is impossible to have a re public, because the republicans are incapa ble of forming and maintaining it. But I consider the only really possible chance of salvation for France is in the republican form of government. I do not think either of the claimants for the crown can do much, because, as soon as one of them gets even an apparent chance, the others will imme diately unite against him with the repub licans. I do not believe much in the fusion of the two branches of the Bourbon family. "You can not have any idea here of the deep demoralization of the people of France under the imperial government. It was a worse government than ever France had before. But there is no fear of its restora tiou. Although many of the peasants are in favor of it. their master has gone, and they have no leaders, no officials to lead them to the polls and tell them what to vote, consequently they are like sheep with out a shepherd." General de Trobriand will start next week to join his command at Utah, to report July 1. Commenting on the report of the capture of Khiva by the Russians, the Tribune savs: The Russians proceeded directly to the city of Khiva and were satisfied with little less than absolute subjection, thus obtaining possession of a country having about two millions of inhabitants, mostly nomads, and an area of one hundred and eighty thousand square miles of desert, excepting an oasis, about the city ot Khiva, of about one-sixth of the entire area. The Russians, however, had a deeper purpose than the mere acquisi tion of the uncultivated territory, as will readily be seen from the fact that nothing but Afghanistan now separates them from India. At no distant day England will be obliged seriously to devise plans for pre venting a formidable rival from competing with her for the wealth of the Indies. Storm at Uhatawa. We copy the following from the Times of last evening: On Friday evening a hurricane arose about two miles southeast of Chatawa, and went northwest, carrying destruction in its path, some of the particulars of which we have learned through the Rev. Father Geisen. ot St. Mary's church. The gallery of the house of Mr. Chamber lain, the station agent, was carried away, and the negro church was lifted and carried about three h undred feet. Mr. Howell and Mr. Reist had their peach crop destroyed, and the road rendered impassable by the fallen trees, twenty laying across it in the distance of a quarter ot a mile. Large trees were carried through the air like sticks. On the property of the Redemp torist Fathers a tree fell on the house of Mrs. Turner, and injured the roof. No lives were lost as far as heard from. The local board of inspectors to investigate the case of the steamer W. R. Arthur, which was destroyed on the Mississippi river last January, when sixty-five passengers lost their lives, have decided that the officers of said boat, as well as the officers of the boat that passed and refused aid, were crimi nally negligent, and should be prosecuttKl before tbe grand jury. The officers have taken an appeal to the supervising inspec tor at Louisville. They "cleaned House" at the domicile of the editor of the Litchfield Enquirer last week. The editor was called home avid in trusted with the artistic work of painting the kitchen chairs. He finished one of them and sat down on it to paint the others. They made a fire under the chair to thaw him off. It ruined the chair, but he has had a bay window set in his pants, and they are about as good as new. No trains were running yesterday on Stanton railroad, as about two thousand employes held possession of the road, and would not allow a train to run until they are paid. We learn that a meeting of cred itors of this road will be held to-morrow, when it is expected arrangements will be matured to run the trains regularly. Tbe city of Augusta, in Maine, occupies a solitary and questionable eminence. It was the only town of any size in the State which wholly ignored Decoration Day. The Bos ton Adrertiser significantly says that "Au gusta made money enough out of the war to pay some honor to its victims." There are 8500 seamen, including petty officers, in our navy, and it takes $4,550,000 annually to pay them. It takes the same amount to pay officers, which state of things is sadly out of proportion. There fore the number of officers is to be reduced very largely. ' The Washington Star explains that a cer tain gentleman, formerly employed in tbe Interior Department, was not dismissed " because be participated in a recent labor strike," but because he " had shown a con stitutional disposition to strike against all labor." The city of Prentice, Pennsylvania, con tains one house. A wing having been added to it, a local paper takes occasion to expatiate on tbe " rapid growth " of the city. The American Tract Society publishes a •tatement to the effect that they have issued 442,000,000 tracts in 141 different languages during the last forty-five years. Well done, that! BY TELEGRAPH.

The annual message of Mayor Hall, with accompanying reports of the different de partments of the city government, was submitted to the Common Council to-day. The report claims that the present system of municipal government has been attended bv marked success, and that the adminis tration of municipal affairs in all depart ments has been characterized by vigor and eeopomy. The Controller a report gives the receipts from January 1 to April 30 of the present year at $14,501,945; deduct amount of over draught in December, $967,675, leaving $1,353,270; payments, $1,191,783; balance in the treasury April 30, $1,617,086. The mayor states that the credit of the city now rests on a firmer basis, because the sinking funds, as now constituted, will be amply sufficient to pay the city debt as it matures without resort to taxation for a dollar for that purpose. Allusion is made to attacks upon the oity's credit, and it is stated that a sufficient answer to them is found in the fact that the mayor and con troller find it the easiest of theit duties to negotiate bonds both at home and abroad, and that handsome premiums are obtained on all bonds authorized by the Legislature. LONDON. Thomas Hughe* to the Workingmen— Hh» Praise of the United Ntates and One Institutions—He Recommends Unem ployed Workmen to Come Here— Schneider, the French Actreas, Mar ried-Communists of London— French and Prussian Harvest Prospects Dis couraging—Washington Treaty Dis cussed in Parliament. London, June 12.—Mr. Thomas Hughes, in an address to the workingmen of London, delivered yesterday evening, eulogized the liquor laws and various other institutions of the United States, praised the people and government of that country, aud urged emigration to America upon all those vaiuly seeking work at home. * Schneider, the noted French actress, ba» married a nobleman. The communists of ClerkenwelL, London, have resolved to hold a meeting Monday night, in Hyde Park, to protest against ex tradition. The harvest prospects in France and Prus sia are discouraging, much seed having per ished. In the more eastern portions of Europe, however, the crops promise an abundant yield. London, June 12.—In the Honse of Com mons, Gladstone, replying to a question, said: "The sixth article of the Washing ton treaty prohibits tbe use of neutral port* for the renewal or augmentation of arms and supplies to the belligerents only when exported in the ordinary course of com merce." This, he said, was the under standing on the part of President Grant and Minister Schenek. It was understood, how ever, that on presentation for acceptance by other powers, that the statement on this point should be clear. Gladstone stall'd, that he had received the assent of the United States government to the proposal to submit three principles of the treaty to European powers for their acceptance. He believed the prospective advantage to Eng land would be immense. He concluded by praising tbe tone of America throughout the negotiations. In the House of Lords Russell moved that an address be sent to the crown against the ratification of the YY'asliington treaty. He said the treaty was one sided even about the fisheries. He asserted that Great Bri tain had observed all obligations of neu trality during the war. He quoted from the blue book to prove bis assertion and scouted the idea ot negligei.ee on the part of the British government. In conclusion he said the treaty sacrificed England's pres tige—it sacrificed all for peaee. Earl Granville said he accepted the dis cussion, but not Russell's motion. He ex plained tbe circumstances attending tbe ne gotiations of the treaty, and declared^ its terms honorable and advantageous for Can ada. YVliile he regretted the exclusion of Canadian claims growing out of the Fenian invasion, he could not help seeing that the international gain was incalculable. Earl Derby said be hoped that Russell would withdraw his motion for the rejec tion of the treaty, which America would now take as a direct insult. He did not be grudge the apology, but regretted the retrospection rule, because it put England on trial after her admission of regret tor events under laws passed ten years after the events occurred. Personally he accept ed the treaty as an accomplished tact. Taking the evil with the good, he hoped no pressure would be applied to Canada to in terfere with the exercise of her free will lie rejoiced with everybody that the irri tating difference w r as ended. Earl De Gray defended the treaty and conduct of the negotiations. He scouted the imputation of lamb-like meekness of tho British commissioners. It was true they desired to conciliate the Americans, but nothiug more. Several of the uroposala made by tbe Americans bad been per sistently declined, although they were not preposterous. The apology for the escape of the Alabama made the conclusion ot a._ good treaty possible. The settlement ot the neutrality questions was a vast gain, as neutrality was England's future policy. The omission of any provision for reciprocity was unimportant in view of the progress free trade was making in America. He defended the articles concerning tho fisheries, on the ground that Canada was really benefited by them. Earl Russell then withdrew his motion, and the debate was brought to a close. PARIS. Adjournment of the Assembly—Additional Duties—The Honapartists—Communists Transported to Caledonia—Forts to be Razed. Paris, June 12, Evening.—It is rumored that the Assembly to-day, after voting the loan required by the government, adjourned until July 2.
