THE PUMPING AND BAILING.
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.

DEGRADED FRANCE.
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!

The New York Tribune has the following
special: "On the twenty-second of August
last, J. K. Roberts, of \ew York, and F.
YV. Perkins, of New Orlean* contracted to
carry tbe mails from New Orleans to Key
YVest, calling at intermediate points. By
agreement Perkins was to furnish steamers
and conduct the business for his own ac
count, but paying a certain sum to Roberts.
In case Perkins became unable or failed to
carry out tbe contract Roberts was to take
possession of the line as bis own.
The firm of F. YY'. Perkins A: Co., of which
F. YV. Perkins was the principal partner,
became embarrassed and drew on the Post
master General for payment on the contract
for February, March, April and May, 1871.
The February draft was paid, but in March
the firm of F. YY'. Perkins Sc Co. became in
solvent. and on the sixth of the same month
F. YV. Perkins died. Roberts then took
possession of the steamship line, and then
first learned of the existence of the drafts.
He protested against their payment, and
the sixth auditor sustained him.
An appeal was made to the first con
twilier, who has now affirmed the decision
of the sixth auditor.

the entire Atlantic coast. Clear weather
lias been very generally reported west of
the Blue Ridge.
Clear weather, with light northwesterly
winds will probably prevail on Tuesday
very generally east of the Mississippi river
It is probable that brisk winds will be cx
E erienced to-night in Minnesota and on
ake Superior.

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.
